About Huobi University and Gibraltar
Huobi University, though, is not a formal educational university, stands tall as a premier institute focused on bringing new advancements in the field of blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies. Domiciled in China, Huobi University has been the brainwork behind hosting of multiple courses in the U.S, Japan, and South Korea.

Gibraltar came in the limelight when it brought to use the world’s first custom made regulatory code in 2018.
In 2018, the Gibraltar Financial Services Commission issued one of its first Distributed Ledger Technology licenses to Huobi. This allowed it to run a highly regulated fiat-to-crypto and crypto-to-crypto OTC service for big investors and traders.
Huobi recognizes the intrinsic link between the development of blockchain education offerings and mainstream DLT adoption — a sentiment that has fuelled Gibraltar’s ascent as a global blockchain powerhouse,
