Singapore / June 14, 2023 / Huobi, the virtual asset trading platform, announces Phase I of the Huobi Mars Program to kick off its ambitious plan to explore the universe.
Get Huobi on Mars! By investing big in the space program, Huobi has shown its dedication as the leading cryptocurrency exchange for space exploration. “Huobi’s aspirations are to reach out far into the universe,” said Justin Sun, a member of Huobi Advisory Board. He also mentioned that, “Huobi will join hands with its users in embarking on this special journey throughout space and to explore the unknown. Huobi users will become the first in the Web3 field to enter space.”
According to Huobi’s announcement, the first phase of the Huobi Mars Program spans from June 2023 to June 2024 and consists of 12 rounds. Each round will include a themed activity under which the participating users need to complete the specified tasks and mint the space NFTs. For each round, one lucky user will be selected to win a monthly reward and the winner will be shortlisted as a candidate space passenger. In the second phase, the 12 candidates will be evaluated based on their physical fitness, training and preparation, community contribution, etc., to determine the eventual passenger for space travel with Justin Sun. The space flight is scheduled at a suitable time after July 2024.
The first round of the Huobi Mars Program will last from 12:00 (UTC) on June 14 to 15:59 (UTC) on July 5, 2023. Participating users will need to complete the required one-time, revolving, or monthly settlement of spot trading, P2P transactions, futures trading, and Huobi Earn transactions in order to win space NFT rewards. A user will be offered one chance to mint a space NFT for each task completed, without upper limits.
The space NFTs will be issued on the TRON Network and marketable on various NFT trading platforms. Users will need to link their TRON addresses on the event page in order to receive the minted NFTs. Users are advised to mint the NFTs as soon as possible, as the daily allocated NFT mints are capped and the minting qualification does not carry over to the next round. The first round of NFT minting time lasts from 12:00 (UTC) on June 14 to 15:59 (UTC) on July 15, 2023. The result for the first round will be released at 12:00 (UTC) on July 20, 2023.
One lucky user will be drawn to win the generous monthly award and shortlisted as a candidate space passenger each month. The space flight will be broadcasted to the world via a livestream. The candidate space passenger shall be the holder of the NFT number that has been drawn. Huobi will also check the lucky NFT holder’s TRON address, UID, KYC verification, etc., to verify the winner’s identity. Please note that snapshots will be taken at the time of the result release to determine the winner. The winning space NFTs are not transferable. Any such transfer is deemed as a waiver of the reward.
The lucky users shortlisted during the first round of Huobi Mars Program will not only qualify as a space passenger candidate but also enjoy the privilege of a 180-day exemption from spot trading fees on Huobi.
Ancient astronomers observed the movement of stars to make calendars. In the contemporary time, Elon Musk’s SpaceX has been blasting off next-generation rockets. Huobi is contributing its own share to this great cause. With this Mars Program, Huobi hopes to introduce space travel to more people, inspire more interest and passion, and promote the development of commercial spaceflight. This move demonstrates Huobi’s commitment to innovation and exploration, as well as its financial strength.
Get Huobi on Mars! Huobi will always be on the road and never stop.
