Bitcoin Exchange HBUS Continues Comedic Billboard Campaign
HBUS, the exclusive US partner of massive Asian exchange Huobi, continued its funny billboard campaign this week with a new installment.
The new billboard depicts an aged man and reads:
It then encourages the viewer to enjoy stress-free trading at HBUS, which still has a couple weeks of fee-free trading left to encourage new users to try them out. As previously reported, they opted to cut fees out entirely for the remainder of 2018 earlier this year.
The billboard is located at the busy intersection of 3rd and Jessie in San Francisco, in the financial district. Like their previous billboard, it is intended to be lighthearted. It is also timely: recent trends in crypto trading could certainly stress anyone out, with volatility driving the price wherever it feels like. On that note, the price recovered a bit in the past 24 hours, seeing a bump to almost $4,000 at one point, prompting CCN analysts to call for long positions in most cases.
Harkens Back to Funny Campaigns of Old
