According to a press release obtained by U.Today, Singapore-based exchange Huobi continues to reduce the supply of its native Huobi Token. In Q3, it burned $40.63 mln worth of HT, which represents a 70.6 percent increase compared to the previous year. 

Huobi purchases back outstanding tokens from investors in order to reduce the circulating supply of HT and stabilize its price. It is worth noting that the amount of tokens it burns every quarter depends on particular market conditions.   

The company cites the success of its spot trading and derivatives trading markets as the main reason for another token burn.

"Huobi Token plays a core role in the Huobi ecosystem. The continued growth from Huobi’s token burns reflects the community’s active participation and optimistic outlook for our efforts to provide users with new services, lower fees, and a secure platform to trade on."
