Huobi Global, a leading bitcoin and cryptocurrency exchange company, announced today a new aggregate limit for its Investor Protection Fund.

For the year 2020, the Investor Protection Fund will be subject to a cap of 2 million Huobi Token (HT). The token is currently priced at $2.50, which would approximate a limit of around $5 million USD.
Administration of the Investor Protection Fund is subject to an annual allocation limit that is pre-determined. The Huobi team will announce the next annual allocation limit for the year 2021 before December 31st, 2020.
