Huobi Pro will immediately terminate the free listing policy. All new projects will have to pay a certain percentage of up-front deposits, all of which will go to Huobi Pro Investor Protection Fund.

As the global blockchain projects are developing, Huobi Pro will try our best to conduct due diligence on each project and to provide accurate investment evaluation. However, investors may miss the opportunity for potential projects due to Huobi Pro’s misjudgment. Huobi Pro will change current listing mechanism from audit system to registration system. Huobi Pro will carry out a more stringent categorization on trading board by introducing “Professional Section” and establish Investor Access System. For projects in “Professional Section,” Huobi Pro will only carry out authenticity and legitimacy assessment of the project without investment evaluation.
