Huobi will celebrate another year around the Sun by sending a lucky user into space!
Huobi Group, the large global blockchain company behind the world’s third largest cryptocurrency exchange, is celebrating its eighth birthday in a somewhat unusual way.
The company will organise a number of events to celebrate its eighth anniversary, including promotions and a ticket to space.
Huobi will hold a competition that will offer one lucky winner the experience of a literal trip to space. All Huobi Global users worldwide can enter the free competition, but there are some restrictions.
“There are still health requirements to go to space, but those details will be revealed at a later date,” – Jeff Mei, director of global strategy at Huobi Group, said.
The company declined to reveal what space agency will provide this Huobi space journey, or whether it will be through a private company such as Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin or Elon Musk’s SpaceX.
“The message we are trying to send with this competition is that the concept of space is open to everyone, and that reflects the openness of cryptocurrencies and the Huobi platform.” – Mei added.
Running until the end of November, Huobi’s anniversary celebrations will also 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 and government officials.
Speakers will include Alan Greenspan, former chairman of the US Federal Reserve. Greenspan will discuss global inflation as many investors have turned to cryptocurrencies in search of higher returns.
Greenspan is known as a leading advocate of Bitcoin (BTC), comparing Bitcoin to an early form of money in the US called “continental currency”. He also criticised the idea of a central bank digital currency in 2019.
