HT Operations Quarterly Report (Q2 2023)

Dear HTX Users,

We extend our warmest greetings and would like to express our deepest appreciation for your unwavering support and trust in HTX Token (HT). As we dive into this report, we are excited to share the latest updates on HT.


I. HT Burn Data in Q2 2023

1,950,555 HT were burned on HTX in the second quarter of 2023. As HTX steps up its burning mechanism, a total of 298,940,224 HT was burned as of July 15, 2023.

The circulating deflation rate of the quarter was 0.9066%. (Note: Circulating deflation rate = HT burned at time T * (15%/20%) / Circulating supply at time T-1 = 1,950,555 HT * (15%/20%) / 161,360,000 HT)

Current circulating supply: 159,153,756 HT. (Current circulating supply = Existing supply - Fixed TVL - Various long-term TVL)

Existing supply: 201,050,000 HT. (Rounded to the nearest whole number)

II. Announcement on Upgrading HT Burning Mechanism

In December 2022, HTX decided to adjust the burning mechanism in response to the voices and feedback from the HT community. More transparency will be provided and the monthly burning will be upgraded to quarterly burning to be in line with the common practice of the leading crypto exchanges. This new burning mechanism takes effect in Q1 of 2023. Under the new mechanism, the number of HT burned in October, November, and December 2022 is to be announced on January 15, 2023. The number of HT burned in the first quarter of 2023 will be published on April 15, 2023. We will not announce the monthly HT burn data on February 15 and March 15, 2023. After that, the burned amount in each quarter will be published on the 15th of the first month of the next quarter.


What is the HT burning mechanism?

HTX allocates 20% of its revenue to burn HT.

HTX's revenue includes:

1. Trading fees from spot, futures, and OTC trading, as well as coin conversion.

2. Interest on isolated margin loans, cross margin loans, and OTC loans.

3. Withdrawal fees.

4. Revenue from various businesses/products/services, such as margin trading.


We will burn HT quarterly rather than monthly and disclose details to the public on a regular basis, as a part of our efforts to continuously improve the openness and transparency of HT burn.


The number of HT burned is calculated by the formula:

H = R1 * 20% / P2


R (HTX’s revenue) includes:

1. Trading fees from spot, futures, and OTC trading, as well as coin conversion.

2. Interest on isolated margin loans, cross margin loans, and OTC loans.

3. Withdrawal fees.

Revenue from various businesses/products/services, such as margin trading.

Calculation formula of P (HT's average price):

P = Σ (Daily HT amount received * Daily HT opening price) / Quarterly HT amount received


Since the launch of our HT empowerment plan, HT has seen continuous growth with the support of the community. By aligning itself with industry leaders, HTX is well positioned to make our HT burning mechanism more transparent and refined. More importantly, this upgrade shows that we are constantly reforming HT and growing with the community, which will speed up our return to the top 3.
