Meanwhile, in statement, the cryptocurrency exchange said it would target so-called professional investors. Regarding spot and over-the-counter (OTC) trading services, Huobi said they will be extended to “a limited set of pre-qualified investors and professional financial service providers.”

Establishment of a regional headquarters

Huobi also suggested that obtaining a temporary license paves the way for the creation of a regional headquarters for the exchange in Dubai. In comments following the provisional license, Huobi Group CFO Lily Zhang said:

The Government of Dubai aims to make the Emirate the global hub of the future digital economy and be at the forefront of financial innovation. Huobi is optimistic about the potential of the city and the opportunities it offers in the future.

Zhang added that her organization is committed to working to “spur the growth of the virtual asset industry.”

In addition to being licensed by VARA, Huobi said in a statement that it has also obtained licenses in other regions such as South Korea, Japan, and Gibraltar.
