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.

Bitcoin recently dropped to $6,800, its lowest level since early May. However, Demeester apparently sees this as yet another opportunity to buy the dip. He states that top coin's parabolic uptrend that started at the beginning of 2015 hasn't been violated. However, Bitcoin has tapped support for the first time since March when Bitcoin was trading well below $4,000. 

Shortly after printing a huge red candle on the logarithmic chart, the Bitcoin price spiked by 20 percent on Apr. 2, which started the coin's massive run to $13,700.
