What is known about the new license? Huobi has received regulatory approval to transfer its spot trading services, which were previously operated in the Seychelles jurisdiction. Previously, the exchange only had a DLT license in the region, providing the ability to provide services under distributed ledger technology.

According to the Huobi Group co-founder Du Jun, this will attract institutional and retail investors, thanks to the availability of a license from the European regulator. In addition, Huobi believes that they will be able to expand the company's expansion into global markets.
