The Origin of Hoo
Hoo (Chinese pinyin: Hufu) originated from the Spring and Autumn Warring States and prevailed in the Qin and Han Dynasties.
It was a token used by the ancient Chinese emperors to grant the military power. Hoo is a tiger-shaped token made of copper which is divided into left and right halves. The right half is kept to the emperor and the left half is sent to the hand of the general. When the left and the right half match each other, the one who has it would have the power to deploy forces and dispatch troops.
Hoo is the origin of cryptography to some degree. The cryptography today inherited the spirit of Hoo. For example, for a crypto wallet, the wallet address is similar to the left half of Hoo and the private key is the right half of it. You can have the access to your assets only if the two matches.
Hoo Token was founded in 2017 as a cryptocurrency wallet. It quickly grew into a well-reputed wallet in the field in just two years. In June 2019, the HOO announced its acquisition to Chaince and OAX, two start-up exchanges in China, and fully upgraded to a blockchain assets service platform whose business expanded to crypto exchanges, wallets, custody, and the mining industry.

The “Digitalization of Assets Rights” at Hoo Power is to digitalize the rights of user cryptocurrency assets and turn them into tradable tokens which can be circulated and transferred in the secondary market. Users who hold digitalized right tokens (ticker name starting with a T) will be able to exercise their rights in a certain period of time with “1 token + 1 digitalized right token”.
