The move comes just a day after Huobi said it would move its registration license offering spot trading to Gibralta.
Previously, the exchange accepted to leave its home market of China after Beijing’s outright ban on cryptocurrencies. As reported by CHK, Huobi’s management team was completely surprised by the severity of the ban, leading to being passive in finding alternative markets. At that time, the Huobi representative announced that they would shift their focus to Southeast Asia, Europe and the Middle East markets. However, the loss of Singapore will be a heavy blow to Huobi’s reconstruction plan.
Even so, on Twitter, an account called Huobi Singapore claims that this is just part of a strategy to launch its own trading platform called Huobi.sg.
Hi, please wait a while for https://t.co/I343HcDQ6r platform to launch. 🙂

The platform is currently waiting to be licensed by the Singapore government. This scenario is even more valid when in September, the Binance exchange also announced the termination of operations in Singapore, but still registered for a license to establish Binance Singapore subject to the management of the government.
