It should be noted, however, that the exchange has a customer base of over 4,000 users within the country, as well. Ciara Sun stands as the Vice President of Huobi Global Markets, and gave a statement about the matter as well. She explained that they will provide a one-click migration option for Huobi Russia. This comes after a campaign announced the upgrading of the brand itself. Sun explained that Huobi Global had been impressed with Russia’s growing crypto market. Thanking its Russian partner, Sun highlighted how it already has a strong position of leadership within Russia’s crypto market. Sun stated that she was certain that Huobi would continue development within Russia’s market for a long time. Capitalizing On Potential Recently, Huobi had announced that its crypto savings system would be made available to a select portion of their user base. Each of these individual accounts will have a limit of $3,000 in Tether (USDT), or the equivalent value in Bitcoin at the time. This all comes as Huobi Global is seeking to strengthen its grip within Russia, rebranding Huobi Russia, an independent partner since 2018, to Huobi Global. Huobi Russia will retain its privilege rights to develop its own solutions and digital platforms, as well as to leverage the liquidity and technologies Huobi Global has to offer.
