Prior to the ban on cryptocurrency trading in China in October 2017, it was one of the Big Three exchanges. After that, “wandering through jurisdictions” began. The exchange has been renamed Huobi Global and provides services in several dozen countries. However, in 2021, due to tighter regulation, it was forced to stop servicing traders from 12 countries, including mainland China, and close its office in Beijing.

Now the parent company Huobi Global is registered in Gibraltar. There are also offices in South Korea and Japan, and representatives and technical support teams are present in more than 20 countries. The US office was closed in 2019 due to regulatory pressure.
