"Our strategic partner, Huobi, has grown to be the largest digital asset marketplace globally. As investors’ acceptance of virtual currency and digital assets increases, we have seen incredibly high demand in the U.S.," commented to the media company CEO Frank Fu.

As for the fiats, the platform will not provide such trading services so far due to certain complications with certifications.

"Trading USD to virtual currency requires complex licensing and cooperation with US financial regulations and organizations. At this time, we are not accepting any fiat to virtual currency trading and make no predictions as to future availability," according to the post on the company website.

Notably, following the AML regulation, all users will have to pass verification and identification on the platform.
