HTX, formerly known as Huobi Global, is a leading cryptocurrency trading exchange that started as a modest venture in 2013. It ascended to become the largest cryptocurrency exchange in the Chinese market by 2017, and eventually withdrew from Mainland China in 2021.
In 2023, during the TOKEN2049 event’s Afterparty, jointly hosted by HTX and TRON, Justin Sun, a member of the HTX Global Advisory Board, made a historic announcement: Huobi’s global brand is officially evolving into HTX. The letter “H” signifies Huobi and carries forward the legacy of Huobi, while “T” symbolizes TRON, signifying their commitment to further develop within the TRON ecosystem. Additionally, “X” represents the exchange itself. Alternatively, “HT” also represents the native platform token on the exchange, known as HTX Token.
