In the ever-evolving crypto market, HTX has left an important mark as a centralized exchange.
HTX had humble beginnings in 2013, rose to become the largest exchange in the Chinese market by 2017, and exited Mainland China in 2021. The past decade has witnessed the ups and downs in the global crypto industry, particularly in China, as well as HTX’s moments of glory and setbacks.
As of August 31, 2023, HTX has accumulated 44 million registered users, over 9 million trading users, a cumulative trading volume of over 31 trillion USDT, an all-time high platform assets of more than 60 billion USDT, and the most monthly active users of over 3 million. It has maintained 100% functionality and no major security incidents for the past ten years.
On its 10th anniversary, HTX presented a huge celebration with a range of special promotions including spot, futures, wealth management, and the HTX Mars Program. HTX users were provided with the opportunity to gain rewards by participating in these activities for a limited time.
