To the moon: Huobi wants to send someone to outer space for his 8th birthday

3 min reading

As part of celebrating their eighth anniversary Huobi Group is conducting events which would give opportunities for people to get space tickets and go to outer space.


The Huobi Group, the major global blockchain company behind the world's third-largest cryptocurrency exchange, is celebrating its eighth anniversary in a rather unusual way. The company will hold a number of events as part of its eighth anniversary celebrations, including promotions for flyers and space tickets, Huobi said on Wednesday.

Huobi will host a race that will give one lucky winner the experience of actually traveling in space. All Huobi Global users worldwide are eligible to enter the free contest, but there are certain limitations. “There are still health requirements for going into space, but these details will be announced at a later date,” Jeff May, director of global strategy for the Huobi Group said.

The company declined to reveal which space agency will be making this spacewalk for Huobi or whether it will be through private companies like Jeff Bezos' Blue Origin or Elon Musk's SpaceX. "The message we are trying to convey with this competition is that the concept of space is open to all and this reflects the openness of the cryptocurrency and Huobi platform," added May.

Huobi's anniversary celebrations run through November and include the company's annual online forum, Huobi Summit 2021: Blockchain and Beyond. The event will take place on Monday and will include panel discussions with industry experts as well as government officials. Alan Greenspan, former chairman of the US Federal Reserve, will be on the list of speakers. Greenspan will discuss global inflation as many investors turn to cryptocurrencies in search of higher returns.

Greenspan is known as a major proponent of Bitcoin (BTC), comparing Bitcoin to an early form of money in the United States, known as a "continental currency". He also criticized the central bank's idea of a central bank digital currency in 2019.   Huobi Group co-founder Du Jun stated that the company will continue to expand its global presence to introduce innovative products and local services, starting with markets in Turkey and Brazil. To drive its global expansion, Huobi plans to increase its workforce worldwide from 2,300 to 3,000 by the end of 2021.

Huobi was recently forced to leave China after the Chinese government imposed a ban on other cryptocurrencies in late September. As of mid-October, Huobi's businesses were operating outside of China and accounted for about 70% of trade and sales volume.
