    Last week Huobi hosted a huge party in Melbourne to celebrate the launch of their cryptocurrency exchange in Australia. I was fortunate enough to attend. It was a great night and everything was first class. The user experience on their platform is also very impressive. Chris from DNT was there too, and he has posted an article about the event on Crypto.com.au

    Strange that they'd used a .pro for their main site.

    (Very nice name Chris has BTW)

    Yeah, they actually own Huobi.com and HuobiPro.com too. If you go to either of these domains you see the same site as for Huobi.pro, and yet the domain name in the address box does not change like it would with a regular redirect.

    Looks a mess, I'd say they need to move to the .com if they wish to be mainstream, at least they own it though.

    Yeah, the .pro is an odd one for this tier of provider...

    Yep, have to use the .com if not for the trust element alone

    Sure. At that stage it won't matter if he estimates all of my domains to be valued at $0. :cool:

    I don't believe that is actually Snoopy anyway. The avatar is smiling, can't be him!

    Fake Snoopy alert! Account hacked and avatar changed by impostor. Next thing you know he'll value a random .au name at $10. :D
