Huobi Russia is a local exchange supported by Huobi Cloud, Huobi’s regional exchange partnership program, in partnership with the VEB Digital Transformation Center and Russian experts in the field of blockchain and exchange trading.

“The launch of Huobi Russia will bring the Huobi’s leading technology and trading expertise to Russian users,” said David Chen, Huobi Senior Business Director. “Huobi Russia gives Russian traders and cryptocurrency enthusiasts access to Huobi’s unmatched safety, stability, and user experience.”

“Despite the current market, the trading volume of Huobi Russia is growing, and recently exceeded USD $20 million in a single day. This shows the high interest and popularity of the Huobi Russia exchange with the Russian community. Huobi Russia will also be looking into providing blockchain and business development services for the local Russian users, such as education, project management, and negotiating deals.”

Huobi Russia and Huobi Cloud collaborated with the VEB Digital Transformation Center in the fields of training, legislative & regulatory initiatives, and blockchain research.

“Russia is actively promoting the blockchain market. As a well-known bank owned by the Russian government, VEB seeks to play an important role as a leader in blockchain research and legislation. In the field of digital asset trading, Huobi is one of the world’s largest digital asset trading platforms, with advanced technology and mature experience, security, and trading experience. VEB will continue to expand and cooperate with Huobi in the fields of development and education.”

VEB Bank was founded in 1922 as the first international bank in the Soviet Union. In 2007, Russia passed a law stipulating that VEB should support and develop the Russian economy and manage Russia’s national debt and pension funds.
