A: I am the Chief Strategy Officer of Hotbit, Alex.

Hotbit, as one of the most famous digital assets exchange platform, was founded in January, 2018 in Hong Kong, China and had gotten the compliance licences from Estonia, USA, Australia and Canada. We have extended our business reach to over 210 countries and regions and gained 1,000,000 registered users around the world. CoinGecko graded Hotbit 10 points in trust scoring which means we have ranked the Top 20 globally.

Hotbit is keeping following the concept of “decentralization” of the block chain, Although we are operating the platform through the company now, many features presented by our products have given the sense that it is highly similar to a “decentralized exchange platform”. I can give you some examples: firstly, 812 currencies and 1,379 trade pairs have come online on Hotbit, which makes it have the second most kinds of digital assets all over the world; secondly, we allow users to register an account through mailbox instead of KYC so as to protect everyone’s privacy; thirdly, there is no withdrawal limit of assets, so you can regard Hotbit as a wallet with mounts of currencies; what’s more, our APP only requires 4 kinds of phone permissions in order to protect users’ privacy, etc..

Q: In recent times #Hotbit is able to list most hyped projects in no time, which attracts many users to your platform.

But how are you able to keep user’s fund #Safu as many exchanges having issues with safety of funds?

Regarding user’s financial security, Hotbit implements the same-level multi-module architecture of IT control logic in the financial industry to ensure stable operation of the system; front-end and back-end design, multi-node and multi-module distributed deployment allows horizontal expansion capabilities which could provide more efficient service to more users. Hotbit has established a strong internal security audit team to conduct real-time online audit for users’ assets 7*24 hours throughout the year. It has also reached strategic cooperation with the industry’s top security audit team SlowWist Technology and Chengdu LianAn to monitor Hotbit potential security issues and propose quick solutions. Hotbit has maintained an impressive record of zero loss for user due to platform vulnerabilities.

Q: As a trader like me, the security of my funds is my first priority before choosing any exchange for trading. How does HOTBIT team ensure users’ assets security?

A: Security issue is the most important thing in the blockchain industry. Hotbit has been subject to various types of attacks and infiltration for a long time.

In our experience, most security issues are not at the technical level, but at the process risk control. Therefore, in addition to working with well-known security teams in the industry to do regular technical precautions, Hotbit has been constantly upgrading its risk control system based on industry lessons and its own experience, and has a dedicated risk control team to conduct 7x24 hours of round-the-clock inspections.

There is no absolute safety, and we will certainly prepare for the worst situation. For the sake of good user experience, about 10% of the assets of the mainstream currency Hotbit are dealt with in hot wallets. This part of the assets is within the financial capacity of Hotbit which can afford compensation even if there are serious problems.

Besides, Hotbit exchange security ranks 9th in overseas authoritative institutions’ evaluation, refer to the link:

Q: There are so many Exchange growing strongly, so why should we choose #HOTBIT and not others? What are the highlights of Hotbit?

A: Let’s talk about why you should choose Hotbit and what the “Hotbit Four Bests” are.

I will explain from four aspects.

1. Security and stability: Hotbit implements the same-level multi-module architecture of IT control logic in the financial industry to ensure stable operation of the system; front-end and back-end design, multi-node and multi-module distributed deployment allows horizontal expansion capabilities which could provide more efficient service to more users.

2. Diversified options: Hotbit has set up several trading areas which support trading of 810+ tokens/coins, 1379+ pairs and nearly one hundred of public chains.

3. Better user experience: Hotbit supports six languages and provides 7*24 hours of uninterrupted online customer service to ensure smooth transactions for global users.

4. Compliance: Holding Estonian MTR licence, American MSB licence, Australian AUSTRAC licence and Canadian MSB licence, Hotbit’s keeping developing pabilities which could provide more efficient service to more users.

And the four bests of Hotbit are: The world’s largest mining token/coin trading platform; the world’s largest anonymous token/coin trading platform; the trading platform with most amount of tokens/coins; the trading platform with most amount of staking tokens/coins.

so why not Hotbit.

Q: Liquidity Mining and Defi is hyped recently, what does Hotbit have done in the trend?

A:Hotbit pays attention to and is actually deeply involved in liquidity mining.

Hotbit’s financing area has launched the world’s most abundant Defi financial products and includes almost every currency which can participate in liquidity mining. And Hotbit also jointly released eth’s cloud computing power products, allowing customers to participate in the current high gas cost of eth mining.

Liquidity mining is very close to the transaction mining concept that was popular in 2018. In essence, it accelerates the cold start process of a blockchain-related product and quickly gains a large number of users and funds. The disadvantage is that more than 80% of users and funds are only attracted by short-term benefits, which will cause market distortions.

Hotbit currently has stable customers and resources. By the end of this year, DeFi, Polkadot and Filecoin have achieved rapid development, so this method of cold start process is no longer needed.

However, we will absorb the entire industry experience of this liquid mining boom, and in the future we will launch products that integrate with DeFi, giving customers the most advanced choice in the industry.
