Below are the steps on how to start trading on Huobi:
Click here to open the exchange site.
To gain full access to the Huobi platform, you need to register an account first. Click on “Sign Up” located at the upper-right hand corner of the website.
You will be routed to the “Welcome to sign up” page where you need to register either with your phone number or email address. In this example. we opt to register using email.
First, select your location, then type in your email and your preferred password. Next, check the agreement box and click on “Sign Up” to proceed.
A small window pops up for captcha. Check the box and click on “Confirm” to continue.
The next window will ask you to type in your email verification code.

What is 2FA?
Two-factor authentication, also known as 2FA, is an extra layer of security or added protection which we refer to as multi-factor authentication. Not only the username and password are required but also a piece of information that only a user possesses. This process is to confirm a user’s claimed identity.
The 2FA process helps lessen the number of identity theft cases as well as phishing via email. It would be harder for potential intruders to gain access and steal someone’s identity and personal data without that piece of information that only the account owner knows.
In the case of exchanges what the user has are his/her login details such as the username and password. The form of 2FA that a user possesses for this instance is a token or code. The code can be received either through SMS on a user’s mobile phone or via applications like Google Authenticator or Authy.
Click this if you want to know more about Authy. You can also download the app through the link provided.
In this step, we will activate 2FA on your Huobi account. Click on the drop-down arrow next to your account name or email. Select on “Account & Security” and click on Google authenticator on the small box that pops up.
Scan the barcode or copy the key to generate the six-digit code, then click on “Link.”
You will be redirected to the “Account & Security” page showing Google authenticator has been successfully linked to Huobi.
It is now secure to deposit money on your verified Huobi account.
Go to “Balances” and select the currency you want to deposit. In this example, we are using BTC.
Click on “Deposit.”
You will then be able to see your Steem address. Please make sure that you only send the same type of digital assets to this address. This means you can only send Steem into your Steem address and not other digital assets. If you deposit different digital assets to the address, you will lose the digital asset permanently.
The process normally takes 10-60 minutes. To view your pending and previous transactions, click on “History.”
With the funds you’ve deposited, you are now ready to trade on your Huobi account.
Click on “Exchange” and choose the currency that you wanted to trade under “Markets”, then scroll down to view the “Buy” option.
Select your order and type in your amount. Click on the “Buy” box to continue.
At the bottom of the page, you can view your open and previous orders.
