Introducing HandCash Connect: Time to Build Better BitCoin Apps

Spain-based BitCoin wallet provider, HandCash, has now packaged, in just one toolkit, the basic components every BitCoin application developer needs. Named ‘HandCash Connect’, the new BitCoin app software development kit is an all-in-one toolkit with six basic components that every developer can use to easily build new applications on the BitCoin SV (BSV) blockchain. The toolkit reduces each key component to simple code snippets in plain English. All a developer needs to do is call the APIs and the Cloud will do all the heavy lifting for them, so they can quickly start building powerful BitCoin applications. This is made possible because HandCash uses the BitCoin SV blockchain, the only chain that significantly scales (now), is regulation-friendly and has robust utility.

The BSV blockchain’s greater scaling, data and micropayment capabilities allow enterprises to build great BitCoin applications. HandCash want developers to focus on their business and customers instead of worrying about the BitCoin component the business sits on top of. HandCash will take care of all that, leaving developers to create apps and services, as well getting visibility on our umbrella app.

But what can be built with it?:

As HandCash Connect is a backend solution, instead of a frontend, so apps and games can be built on any platform – be it mobile, tablet, desktop, web or even for a smart fridge.

Essentially, this SDK allows developers to take advantage of all the powerful properties of BitCoin as a technology platform without any complex BitCoin protocol development skills to learn or infrastructure to maintain.

Also introducing the HandCash App Store:

With the intention of bringing more utility and fun to users, HandCash will also be launching the HandCash App Store, one place where all Bitcoin apps are available.

Many companies have already agreed to participate in the HandCash App Store by either integrate with the HandCash Connect toolkit or build apps entirely based on it.

The pre-launch integration program is now open. Just click here to start building the next big Bitcoin app and get free exposure to thousands of loyal HandCash users.

Huobi Token (HT) Reaches New High Amid Increased Adoption and Ongoing Ecosystem Development

Huobi Global today announced that Huobi Token (HT) has reached a new 12-month high amid the continued growth and development of the whole ecosystem. As of yesterday, HT was trading at a token price of $5.27 USD, a 92% increase since the close of 2019 – and nearly a 5X increase compared to this time last year.

As the native token of digital asset exchange Huobi Global, HT’s new milestone underscores the recent progress of Huobi’s global ecosystem. Last month, Huobi Global and Huobi DM experienced a strong start to 2020 with a 65% month-over-month spike in aggregate trading volume.

Huobi has also transitioned from quarterly to monthly token burns, which are based on a percentage of Huobi Global and Huobi DM’s revenues for each corresponding period. For Huobi’s first monthly burn, 4.057 million HT were repurchased and destroyed in January, which has a current market value of $21.4 million USD. A total of 45.838 million tokens have been burned to date.

“2020 is a pivotal year for Huobi as we enter new global markets and continue expanding our product line-up for both institutional and retail audiences,” said Ciara Sun, Vice President of Global Business at Huobi Group. “HT is a foundational part of the Huobi ecosystem, so we are deeply committed to its success.”

HT Product Roadmap

As part of a longer-term strategic roadmap for HT, Huobi has a number of upcoming initiatives planned that aims to further increase the token’s utility for the broader blockchain and crypto community.

Huobi DM’s new Perpetual Contract product, which is currently undergoing internal testing and nearing public launch, will be incorporated into the HT Token Burn Program. HT will also play an integral role in the ecosystem of Huobi Chain, a regulator-friendly financial blockchain that’s slated for testnet launch in the near future.

Additional features in development include HT margin trading with up to 2X leverage, which is expected to launch in March, and collateralized HT for peer-to-peer crypto lending and pledged loan contract assets.

HT Ecosystem Adoption

To further expand HT’s utility beyond the Huobi ecosystem, Huobi is accelerating efforts to integrate with third-party partners, including international credit cards, digital bank cards, blue-chip technology companies, and global entrepreneurship centers.

HT was recently accepted as a payment option for charitable donations to Project HOPE, a global nonprofit organization that has been providing health development and emergency relief since 1958. Last month, Huobi partnered with a leading crypto-friendly hotel booking platform to integrate HT as a preferred payment method on Travala.com.
