[Guide] How and why to buy HT (Huobi Token)

HT or Huobi Token is the token of our partner Huobi Global. When purchasing BTCMT tokens, you pay for them and also pay gas. HT is needed to pay gas.

2. How many HT you need

You can buy HT on Huobi Global or GAte.io. The minimum withdrawal amount of tokens on Huobi Global is 2.0088 HT, on GAte.io — 0.45 HT. So one way or another, the minimum withdrawal amount is enough to cover gas when buying BTCMT.

Note, you can’t purchase BTCMT without HT, so be sure to buy them in advance.
