SINGAPORE, Sept. 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Huobi Pool, Huobi Group's mining pool entity, has seen substantial gains in the share of the global bitcoin (BTC) mining pool distribution in the recent week, pushing its standing up into the top 10 rankings.
According to BTC.com, Huobi Pool broke into the tenth spot of the total hashrate share distribution on September 25, 2018. Huobi Pool was first launched on March 30, 2018. At the time of writing, Huobi Pool has fallen to the #12 spot, holding 1.47% of the total pool.
This comes after the recent launch of Huobi Pool Token (HPT), the first sub-token created for the Huobi Token (HT) ecosystem. Since the launch of HPT, Huobi Pool has seen a substantial 50% increase in computing power. As of September 26, 2018, the computing power of Huobi Pool exceeds 1000P hashpower.
A total of 10 billion HPT was initially issued to holders of HT, but users can also earn HPT by contributing hash power to the Huobi Pool when mining for BTC and/or Bitcoin Cash (BCH). HPT will allow Huobi users to participate in the future development of Huobi Pool, and also share in the value growth of Huobi Pool.
