Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s older sister, Randi Zuckerberg, has joined the Huobi Chain Expert Advisory Committee. Huobi is one of the three largest cryptocurrency exchanges in the world based on 24-hour trading volume.
Huobi published a press release last week highlighting new appointments to the board. Zuckerberg, the founder and CEO of Zuckerberg Media and a former Facebook senior executive, joins Bitmain founder and co-CEO Jihan Wu along with six other big names from Silicon Valley and academia.
According to the release, the Huobi Chain Advisory Committee will provide “comprehensive professional advice and insights on the underlying technology, industry application, business model construction and other dimensions of the blockchain,” while also offering “advice and support during the election of the Huobi Chain Leader Championship.”
Huobi Chain is a new public blockchain platform designed to decentralize Huobi operations. The Huobi Chain Project will provide individuals and organizations with a “reliable financial protocol for value exchange, fundraising, securitization and more.” The network within public chains is “entirely open,” enabling anyone to join and participate.
Last week, Huobi launched an automated token listing platform that streamlines the process for new tokens to become listed on the exchange.
