Futu's one-stop investment platform, moomoo, achieves over 220,000 users and 100,000 paying clients in under 3-months since launch in Singapore

Moomoo Inc. announced that its affiliated company, Futu Singapore Pte. Ltd., has gained over 100,000 paying clients with its user base soaring to over 220,000 in Singapore since the official launch on 8 March 2021, making it one of the fastest growing digital investment platforms in Singapore.

Since entering the Singapore market, moomoo has proven to be a hot-favorite among the investing community, with its user base amassing to 220,000, of which 100,000 are paying clients. The robust growth over the few months has been complemented with positive user feedback on the interface and product offerings. This one-stop trading platform provides users with an easy-to-use and seamless platform to manage their portfolio across multiple markets, access to up-to-date resources and real-time market data, and interactivity via the in-app forum, moo community.

Among the 100,000 paying customers, over 40% of our paying clients showed a keen interest in trading in the US market.

Futu Singapore conducted a survey earlier this year to better understand investing behavior and motivations among Gen Z and Millennials clients, understanding that this is a target audience segment to watch. Results showed that younger investors have a strong appetite for self-directed stock trading and make effective use of online investment platforms to implement financial management plans suited to their needs.

The survey also noted that the Gen Z and Millennials clients’ practice of ‘social sharing’ has now extended to the investment world, with 11.6% of Millennials sharing profit graphs on the platform, and nearly 9.7% of Gen Z-ers sharing their performance or insights. This complemented the characteristics of younger investors and their drive to seek more knowledge and related content. And moo community offers exactly those features.

Around 220,000 people in Singapore have joined the moo community, where users, investors, companies, analysts, media and key opinion leaders are encouraged to connect and exchange market views, share their investment insights and questions through posts and live-streams, tune in to live broadcasts of corporate events and even participate in online courses dedicated to boosting financial literacy. This community of like-minded individuals act as a pool of knowledge and support for investment strategies. This engaging in-app social community experience is unlike any other provided in a digital trading platform, and has further contributed to Futu’s popularity among local investors.

“We feel immensely proud to reach this milestone in the Singapore market and are thankful for all the support and feedback we have received from the investing community here. We’ve always set our minds for the Singapore market to be our runway of growth across the South East Asian region, and we’re humbled to know that moomoo has attracted such a large customer base in a short period of time. We will continue to stay committed to scaling up our business portfolio in Singapore and are looking forward to having more local talent help pave the future for Futu,” says Mr. Leaf Hua Li, Futu’s Founder, Chairman, CEO & Chairman of the Technology Committee.

Futu currently has over 14 million users worldwide and possesses one of the fastest growing investor communities in the region which enables users to stay up-to-date with latest investment trends and to seek guidance from seasoned and new investors.

Thiozen, the first company ever to produce clean hydrogen from “sour gas” waste streams, announces total of $3.2M in funding

Producing hydrogen from ‘sour gas’ waste streams for Emissions Reduction Alberta,
Alberta Innovates

Thiozen, the first company ever to produce clean hydrogen from “sour gas” waste streams, today announced it has received a total of $3.2M in funding for a clean hydrogen project in Alberta, Canada. Administered by Emissions Reduction Alberta (ERA) and Alberta Innovates, the funding is part of an overall $57 million commitment by the Government of Alberta to support 28 projects that advance the hydrogen economy, reduce emissions, and create jobs in Alberta.

Projects cover the spectrum of hydrogen production, storage, transmission, distribution, and usage. The Thiozen project will produce zero-emission hydrogen, which will be used to decarbonize onsite operations as a way of addressing one of the energy industry’s leading challenges: finding economically viable ways to decarbonize remote industrial locations.

“The Government of Alberta recognizes that sour gas processing is a major cost associated with energy supply, and appreciates both the economic and environmental value of removing the hydrogen sulfide and producing a new energy stream in hydrogen,” said Ryan Gillis, co-founder and President at Thiozen. “We’re honored to be selected to participate in this project and to help Alberta leverage an entirely new method of producing hydrogen.”

Thiozen will use ERA funding to install its proprietary technology at a gas processing site in Alberta. The Thiozen platform will facilitate the “de-souring” – or removal – of hydrogen sulfide from the sour natural gas streams while simultaneously generating zero-emission hydrogen.

“Hydrogen has the potential to transform global energy markets and to create trillions of dollars of economic activity,” said Nate Glubish, Minister of Technology and Innovation with ERA. “Alberta’s government is committed to investing in new technologies to develop a hydrogen market and to ensure that Alberta is the Hydrogen capital of Canada. These investments will help to grow and diversify our economy and secure our future as a global energy powerhouse for generations to come.”

If successful, the eight projects funded through ERA’s Accelerating Hydrogen Challenge are expected to deliver annual greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions of 13 thousand tonnes, cumulative reductions of 81 thousand tonnes by 2030, and 493 thousand tonnes by 2050.

“Thiozen’s selection by the Government of Alberta reflects the urgency of finding efficient decarbonization strategies for some of Canada’s most important industries,” said Gillis. “This is truly a transformational moment for Canada’s hydrogen economy and for the energy industry as a whole.”

About Thiozen’s Breakthrough Hydrogen Production Technology
Thiozen’s patented chemical cycle produces hydrogen from hydrogen sulfide – the “sour gas” waste stream – thereby replacing traditional hydrogen production. This process will dramatically reduce global greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, the technology will improve air quality and respiratory health in communities near current hydrogen infrastructure while providing cost-sensitive firms a path to both procuring additional hydrogen and lowering the carbon intensity of their products.

About Thiozen
Thiozen is an MIT spinout and the first-ever company to commercialize a process that can produce hydrogen from sour gas waste streams. By developing a low-cost, low-emission method of producing hydrogen, Thiozen helps meet the energy industry’s growing demand for clean, affordable hydrogen. Thiozen recently validated its technology in an in-field pilot unit in the Permian Basin. The 3-year-old company has headquarters in Pasadena, CA.
