Introduction of H-Tokens (HBTC & HFIL)
H-token series are a suite of assets issued on Ethereum and backed by cryptocurrencies from other blockchains to bring more digital assets to the Ethereum DeFi ecosystem.

The issuance of the H-Tokens will allow more users in the crypto world to benefit from DeFi, accelerate the development of the Ethereum DeFi ecosystem, and promote the growth of Ethereum-based assets.

HBTC as well as HFIL has enabled BTC and FIL users to seamlessly access Ethereum DeFi protocols such as Uniswap, Curve, Nest, CoFix, ForTube and more. And its growing use cases prove that the value has been recognized by the market.

Use Cases (examples):

  1. Juan Benet, the founder of Filecoin, praised HFIL on Twitter, thinking that using HFIL and DeFi, anyone can migrate FIL to Ethereum and use smart contracts to handle various things. Miners can rely on DeFi infrastructure and loan market.

  2. HBTC pool is available on Curve since Sep 10th and liquidity providers can then deposit HBTC there to earn trading fee reward and CRV reward.

well, centralization is a huge concern. The defi world is a decentralized world, maybe not suitable for a centralized asset :rofl:

All wrapped forms of Bitcoin come with trade-offs, there is no doubt about that. wBTC will be centralized forever and that carries those risks we are aware of. sBTC and tBTC both use the collateral and liquidation model, and that brings with it dangers of a collapse of the peg if there is too much volatility too fast, and problems with scaling liquidity. Ren uses fees and cash flow to secure the system, which requires a level of adoption before it can securely be decentralized (and therefore it starts out centralized as it is now).

This diversification of risk is good for us, because right now we are still so early, and we don’t know very well how things will play out in the future. If any of these models fail, we have other ones to fall back on.

However, Hbtc does have its advantage. Hbtc is backed by Huobi Group, with more than 15 Million users, and a history of 7 years’ stable operation. Currently Hbtc moves smoothly on its compliance process.
