Huobi offers a wallet to users of their cryptocurrency exchange, and they’ve just announced that the XTZ tokens will be supported by, agreeing to participate in baking as well. Tezos uses the term “baking” to describe their Proof of Stake (PoS) staking counterpart.
In the tweet, the platform explains Tezos’s role as a self-amending network, which basically means that a hard fork is not required when it updates, due to the on-chain mechanisms and voting procedures. Huobi expresses that Tezos is a leader in both POS and governance, adding that it was “a no brainer to add XTZ” to their wallets.

At the time of writing, Tezos was trading at $1.35, showing a jump of almost 11% in the last 24 hours.
