Previously the company targeted mainly the Chinese market. But after the country tightened regulations on exchanges, Huobi moved into the global market.
Although Huobi has cut many features due to pressure from the ban; but the exchange still owns a very large transaction volume.
In Vietnam, Huobi Global is a popular exchange for Vietnamese traders, second only to Binance.

Advantages of Huobi Global that you should know
- They have an insurance fund, so customers won't have to worry about losing money in case the exchange is hacked
- Huobi Token (HT) is one of the very HOT exchange coins, with high liquidity, good price keeping and stable growth, well worth the investment. Also, if you trade with HT, you will get 50% off the transaction fee.
- Support a lot of different coins, the main coins have high liquidity.

- You can easily sell coins to VND and vice versa
- There is a co-operation to support Vietnam, please see details at the end of the article.
This is one of the highlights that I have dedicated a small space to write about, that is IEO investment on Huobi Prime
That means participating in buying a certain coin that is about to be sold on Huobi Prime, if you buy it successfully, your assets can XXX very quickly.
If you are not sure what it is, then try reading through the article below:
After many periods and learning from experience, Huobi announced that the new rules of participating in Prime are quite good.
With the new law, anyone who participates in the investment can successfully buy an IEO, not compete like the old one. And the buy rate will be more if you hold more HT.
I would like to quote the type of paragraph in another article on Blogtienao
“Every month, Huobi Global will announce the names of 5 projects that will participate in FastTrack. Using HT, you can get multiple votes for projects in a weekly voting round. The project that receives the most weekly votes will be selected to list on Huobi Global on the same day of announcing the voting results. Tokens of the winning project will be tradable immediately, and listed in USDT, BTC, and HT pairs.”
Users who voted for the winning project, will be able to purchase project tokens at 50% less than their market value.
Furthermore, 10 lucky users among the participating HT users who voted for the winning project will get to exchange all their HT votes into the project's tokens.
Other users will be distributed the number of project tokens according to the ratio of HT . votes
Because all FastTrack and Prime projects tripled, fivefold or more. So the HOT level of Huobi Global and HT is indisputable.
Like other exchanges, Margin is a trend and an indispensable product of Huobi. Currently, the exchange is supporting many different coins with leverage up to 5X
Trading Contract (Huobi DM)
This is a futures trading platform. Huobi DM has tools to help protect and manage risks when participating in trading. This helps to avoid market manipulation.
BTC/ETH/EOS/LTC/XRP/BCH/TRX/BSV/ETC contracts will be launched on Huobi DM. These contracts will be priced in USD, with the corresponding digital currency.

Currently Huobi DM has leverage: 1x, 5x, 10x, 20x
What is HT Token?
Huobi Token (HT) is the original coin of Huobi exchange, launched on January 24, 01. The purpose of Huobi creating HT is to help reduce transaction fees, use HT to participate in exclusive events, etc.
Blogtienao has made a separate article about this token, you can read it at the link below:
The benefits that HT tokens bring
Here are some interesting benefits that HT token holders enjoy:
- HT users in trading can get a discount on trading fees (up to 50%) and can get VIP membership.
- HT holders can vote for the token list on HADAX.
- The HT token provides liquidity. And they are also acquired by Huobi every quarter to be included in the Huobi Investor Protection Fund.
Trading fees on Huobi
Huobi exchange divides transaction fees into two categories, one for general traders and one for professional traders.
Fees for general traders
Fees for professional traders
Note: Traders holding more than 100.000 HT will enjoy 35% discount rate.
With the above two fee tables, it can be seen that Huobi has used a new tiered fee structure.
Here, Blogtienao will guide you on how to get a discount on transaction fees:
Step 1: Log in to your Huobi account and then go to “fee rate setting”
Step 2: You can see the current fee rate, in my case it is:
- Current fee 0.2%
- Two Buttons haven't turned on, 30-day trading volume is 6.47 btc
- The number of HT currently holding is 349 HT
Step 3: You turn on 1 of the 2 buttons on the right, if you have a PointCard, then choose it to reduce the fee. And if you don't have but only HT, then select Button above. In my case, I will choose the HT button to reduce the fee
Then choose "confirm", the system has estimated the level of Lv that you will enjoy, as your account is Lv3.
For those who hold more HT, the fee will be greatly reduced. Those who loyally hold HT for a long time will have very low trading fees. You can refer to the image below:
After the confirmation is complete, it will display like this, that is successful, Now when you conduct the transaction, the fee will be 0.16% instead of 0.2% as before.
In addition, Huobi now also supports buying coins with Visa and Mastercard cards. However, the fee for this service is very high, about 3-5%.
Huobi exchange is a scam (scam)?
Up to this point, Huobi has never had a scam (scam) and there have been no complaints from investors about this situation.
However, in the past, there was information that Huobi exchange was attacked by hackers and stole 12.000 BTC, but this information has not been confirmed.
And the special thing is that they have an insurance fund in these cases, so investors' money will be insured and will not be lost.
Huobi exchange banned in Vietnam?
Because Vietnam is a country in the group that neither bans nor legalizes cryptocurrencies, you can still use Huobi with peace of mind for now.

Some basic knowledge to know before trading
To buy and sell cryptocurrencies on the exchange, you must place a trading order. When you want to buy, place a buy order. If you want to sell, place a sell order.
You can understand the trading order is a way for the exchange to understand how much you want to buy or sell the coin for.
Several types of trading orders: Limit (Limit), Market (Market), Stop-Limit (Stop-limit).
Limit order (Limit)
This command helps you to buy coins at the desired price. For example, if you want to buy Bitcoin for $8.000 then you would place a limit order for 1 BTC at $8.000.
Market order (Marker)
This order helps you buy/sell Bitcoin quickly at market price without waiting like limit order.
For example, you see Bitcoin is down 20%, so you want to buy it right away at a bargain price. You will place a market order to be traded immediately, without missing an opportunity.
Stop-limit order (stop-limit)
This order is often used to stop loss in case the price drops sharply. Reduce peak swing risk. Or use to buy when breaking the resistance area.
However, this type of command is easily "hunted by sharks". That is, they will push the price to break the support or resistance area and then the price will return to the original level.
A simple example to make it easier for you to understand: I want to buy BTC for 8.000 USDT and accept a loss of 100 USD. To preserve capital and not suffer further losses. At this point I will place a sell stop loss order with a stop price of 7.910 USDT and a limit price of 7.900 USDT.
At this point, the stop price is the condition to activate the limit price. This means that when the Bitcoin price drops to 7.910 USDT, the floor will automatically place an order of 7.900 USDT.
The difference of 10 USDT is used to deduct the loss when the price drop is too strong, avoiding the case that the price does not match. Therefore, you should not set a price that is too little different from the stop price.
Things to keep in mind when using a stop-limit order:
- when the in: Stop price bigger limited price
- when the mua: Stop price less limited price
The main market is the main currency traded there. For example, you buy and sell normally in Vietnam. The market here is the VND market.
BTC market is using BTC to buy and sell with other coins.
The main trading pair is the price of one coin relative to another. In the BTC market, there are trading pairs ***/BTC. Similar to the HT market, there are ***/HT pairs.
For example: We have an ETH/BTC pair where you use BTC to buy ETH or you use ETH to sell BTC.
