To provide fair and equal chance of earning rewards for all HBUS users, the following are the official rules for this campaign:
THIS IS AN EFFORT-BASED CAMPAIGN. NO PURCHASE IS NECESSARY. PURCHASE WILL NOT IMPROVE CHANCES OF EARNING REWARDS.
Used but undefined capitalized terms have the respective meanings assigned to them in the HBUS Trading Rules.
ELIGIBILITY: This campaign is open to customers of HBUS (other than residents of the “Restricted States” as defined in HBUS’s Terms of Service) who 1) are 18 years of age or older and have attained Level 2 Verification via the Account Verification page during the campaign period; or 2) have not previously attained Level 2 Verification if the customers have already registered. Employees of HBUS Inc. ("Sponsor"), and respective parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, and members of their immediate family (spouses, parents, siblings or children and their respective spouses, regardless of where they reside) and persons living in the same household of such employees, whether related, are not eligible to enter or earn rewards. Void where prohibited by law. This campaign is subject to all applicable federal, state, and local laws.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE: Starting from 12:00 AM (PT) on August 2, 2018 (“Campaign Start Time”) and until 11:59 PM (PT) on August 15, 2018 (“Campaign End Time”), eligible users of HBUS may participate in the campaign by attaining Level 2 Verification during the campaign period. Self-trading, cross-trading and any other behaviors that amount to Market Abuse or Market Disruption will not qualify as eligible trades and may result in closure of the relevant accounts in accordance with the HBUS Trading Rules.
EARNING REWARDS: This is an effort-based campaign. There is no drawing.
HBUS will determine the list of users who earn rewards based on the time of attaining Level 2 Verification. 30 USDT of rewards for this campaign will be credited into each user's HBUS account the day following completion of Level 2 Verification during the campaign.
WINNER NOTIFICATION: HBUS reserves the right, but assumes no obligation, to announce the user ID numbers, or “UIDs,” of campaign participants along with the amount of rewards earned under each UID on HBUS’s various social media accounts. After the campaign period, HBUS will deposit the rewards to the users' HBUS virtual currency wallet the day following each user's completion of Level 2 Verification. A user claims the rewards by logging into the applicable account and transact with or withdraw the awarded virtual currencies.
