We believe that the global virtual asset industry contains huge room for growth and opportunities. We will integrate relevant industry resources and invest in HuobiGlobal’s core business. Increase resource investment, strengthen institutional cooperation space and enhance competitiveness, and formulate a new plan to comprehensively enhance HuobiGlobal’s global brand strategy.
