Huobi Prime Day will be offering 50% off BTC on Prime
Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

Nearly nine years ago on May 22, 2010Florida-based programmer Laszlo Hanyecz made crypto history when he managed to exchange 10,000 Bitcoins with another early Bitcoin enthusiast for two pizzas. With BTC worth $0.003 at the time, those pizzas cost him about USD $30. Under today’s prices, they would be worth well over USD $70 million and Bitcoin Pizza Day has become a well-loved crypto community tradition.

Huobi Global will honor that tradition on May 22 with a range of initiatives, including the launch of Reserve Protocol’s Reserve Rights Token (RSR) through our premium coin launch platform Huobi Prime. We will also be hosting a special sale of Bitcoin featuring prices discounted up to 50% off market value*.

“Bitcoin Pizza Day is Prime Day this year,” said Huobi Global CEO Livio Weng on the BTC promotion. “Things started as a joke that we were going to list Bitcoin through Prime but then I kept thinking, what better way to mark Prime 3 and celebrate Pizza Day? Let’s actually do this!”

Pizza Day Promotions:

Huobi will be providing 1.5 million* USDT-worth of Bitcoin to users in two special trading rounds on May 22, starting at 18:00 (GMT +8). In the first round, 20% of the total Bitcoin supply will be offered to users at 50% off market price*. In the second, the remaining 80% of Bitcoin will be provided to users at 12% off market price*. While the first round will be first-come, first-served, in the second, all qualified orders will be partially filled via adjusted system matching. “To put it another way, all qualified users in our second round will get at least some of the BTC they seek,” said Ross Zhang, Head of Marketing for Huobi Group. “I do want to warn people, though – we expect demand to be very high, so you’ll have to be lucky and quick in the first round. Also, anyone who goes into the second expecting his or her entire order to be filled may need to adjust their expectations.”

There are several ways to qualify. Users who hold at least 1000 Huobi Token (HT), our native token on Huobi Global, over the seven days leading up to launch (May 15 to May 21) are eligible to participate. Users who have a daily average holding of 20000 or more USDT or the same value of in BTC, NEW, TT, or TOP can also take part.

Huobi is also hosting a number of other activities related to Bitcoin, including giving away 1 BTC at original Bitcoin Pizza Day prices ($0.0031) to a lucky user and more.

Huobi Prime 3 Launch – Reserve Rights Token (RSR)

The core of Huobi Prime Day will be the launch of RSR on Huobi Prime, which is the support token for the payment-service-over-blockchain project Reserve. The project features backers like PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel, Y Combinator Chairman Sam Altman, Ran Neuner, and TechCrunch’s Mike Arrington, plus a founding team that includes former members of Google, Tesla, OpenAI, IBM,  MIRI, and Impossible Foods. RSR is designed to maintain the stability of Reserve’s USD-pegged stablecoin Reserve token (RSV). The overall project’s mission is to build a universal store of value – particularly in regions with unreliable banking infrastructure and/or where inflation is a major issue.

Trading will also take place over two rounds for the RSR launch. As with our special BTC sale, 20% of the RSR tokens on Prime will be offered to users in the first round on a first-come, first-served basis, and 80% of the RSR tokens on Prime will be distributed to users in the second via adjusted system matching.

In order to qualify, users need to hold at least 1,000 HT between May 15 and May 21.

Trading on Huobi Prime 3 will start at 20:00 (GMT + 8) on May 22. The price of RSR will be capped at 1RSR = $0.0006 for the first round and 1RSR = $0.0011 in the second.

“We’re extremely excited to be working with Reserve for our third Prime launch, especially for Prime Day,” said Weng.

Supply Chain Management Association Becomes Supply Chain Canada

Vlad Poptamas

Published

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

At its AGM yesterday, the Supply Chain Management Association™ announced its name change to Supply Chain Canada™. The association also launched a new website as part of an overall rebranding initiative.

“The new name and look are part of a transformation that we have undertaken as the association enters its second century,” said Christian Buhagiar, President & CEO of Supply Chain Canada. “Today’s supply chains are dynamic and fast-paced. The association for Canada’s supply chain professionals must reflect that.”

Through the rebranding process, the association has also acquired a meaningful new logo and tagline, “Professionals advancing the future.”

The logo’s maple leaf design not only conveys our nationality; it also represents the connectedness of the supply chain, illustrating the networks and collaboration that are so essential to supply chain success, and the interconnectedness of the association’s federation, institutes and members. Its connected dots can be seen, as well, as the complex route of a global supply chain.

“Professionals advancing the future” succinctly communicates both the professional status of supply chain practitioners and their forward-looking perspective. It is intended to:

  1. Elevate the perception of supply chain practitioners as professionals, acknowledging the value they bring to their organizations and to the Canadian economy.
  2. Encompass the several ways that the association and its members “advance” – in their personal careers and knowledge, and for the profession, the country and the economy.
  3. Express the future focus of the association – with its emphasis on the development of skills and policies – and of the supply chain itself, now so focused on AI, blockchain, robotics, automation and so on.

The new website, now at www.supplychaincanada.com, is enhanced with a modern look and new functionality that enables location-based content for users across Canada.

These changes are not simply style enhancements. They are part of a larger plan to strengthen the association. Supply Chain Canada consolidates the organization’s brand across the country under a single name in every province and territory, removing any possible confusion from its federation structure. “The unity that this will ensure will help us improve recognition in the sector, and thereby provide stronger leadership to the Canadian supply chain community,” said Buhagiar.

The association’s transformation began in 2018 with a new vision and mission, as well as an ambitious three-year strategic plan. The new name and rebranding announced yesterday are part of a larger evolution that will continue over the next two years with the introduction of new and revised educational offerings, new initiatives to engage with industry, more value-added membership benefits and more.

Export Portal to Address Best Practices in Sustainable Trade Facilitation at the Asia-Pacific Trade Facilitation Forum
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Export Portal CEO Ally Spinu will be adding her take on the alignment of trade facilitation and sustainable development goals at a session at the 9th Asia-Pacific Trade Facilitation Forum (APTFF) in New Delhi.

“The Asia-Pacific region is a wealth of unexplored opportunities which lay deep in the communities of local businessmen and women that just need support in bringing their amazing products to the world to see and buy,” Ms. Spinu said. “I am looking forward to this event and being a part of the change that will help local businesses from this part of the world sell their products globally. I deeply believe that shifting attention to developing SMEs is the major change international trade and local economies have been waiting for.”

This year’s APTFF will focus on how digital and sustainable trade facilitation measures and practices can bring prosperity in the Asia-Pacific region. The forum will investigate opportunities from trade digitalization for sustainable progress of the area and challenges ahead in materializing such opportunities. APTFF will feature panel discussions as well as interactive and informative sessions. These sessions will allow participants to share experiences and perspectives on different aspects of trade facilitation, including trade finance, cross-border eCommerce and paperless trade, transit, innovative application of emerging technologies, and more. APTFF will bring relevant regional initiatives and implementation cases to each session, making it a unique opportunity to share knowledge and practical lessons. The forum will also include many side-events providing a more in-depth exploration of the pertinent trade facilitation issues.

“Agricultural products are the fastest category and industry growing within Export Portal, and I can say that is just natural that SMEs around the world are actively looking for new ways for selling their products around the world,” Ms. Spinu said. “The role of innovative technologies such as Export Portal is crucial in helping these SMEs integrate within the world supply chain of food with ease and at optimal costs. I want to explain the current issues existing within SMEs’ integration in international trade due to the high cost involved and how technology slowly but surely changes this.”

Export Portal’s trade goals align directly with the purpose of this session, as its international B2B trade platform is an affordable and all-encompassing solution for SMEs all over the world. The features that are available and being developed on Export Portal, such as the panel of experts (EP+), the educational hub (EPU), and data flow insights (EPI), provide SMEs with the resources they need to trade effectively on an international scale safely, securely, and efficiently.

The Digital and Sustainable Trade Facilitation for Regional Prosperity session is co-organized by ADB, ESCAP, Ministry of Commerce, India and Confederation of Indian Industry and will be held on Wednesday, September 18, from 9:00 to 10:45 AM.
