The major crypto exchange has long claimed registration in the famous offshoring haven.
Despite long claiming to be compliant with local laws, Huobi seems to have forgotten to register as a company, according to authorities in the Seychelles.
On Monday, the Seychelles Financial Services Authority, or FSA, posted an official statement saying that Huobi Global Limited is not registered in the country, despite being the International Business Company publicly affiliated with Huobi.com’s crypto services.
The FSA stated that Huobi Global Limited does not hold any license issued by the regulator to undertake in virtual asset trading. “Therefore, the entity is not being regulated by the FSA nor has it been in the past,” they said. The authority went on to urge investors and the general public to be alert in respect to services offered by Huobi Global Limited as well as “any other company providing such services.”
Speaking to Cointelegraph, a Huobi spokesperson denied the FSA’s announcement, saying, “Huobi Global Limited is registered in Seychelles and operates with a global structure, serving users in many countries around the world adapting to local laws and regulatory rules.”
The spokesperson had not provided a more detailed response as of press time, nor any proof of registration.
According to the user agreement on the official Huobi Global website, Huobi Global Limited is a company incorporated in the Republic of Seychelles under the laws of the Republic of Seychelles.
The official Huobi website significantly relies on Seychelles’ laws as part of its terms of service, including multiple mentions of the jurisdiction in its legal statement. “This Website is intended to provide professional, safe and trustworthy digital-assets transaction and asset management services […] without violating relevant laws and regulations of the Republic of Seychelles,” the statement reads.

MANA’s surge was followed by Atari’s ATRI token, and Decentral Games’ DG token — all three of which soared to new all-time highs in the wake of the news.
The value of the Decentraland (MANA) token climbed 31% leading into March 9, following news that classic game manufacturer Atari would set up a gaming casino inside Decentraland’s virtual realm.
Announced on March 8, a partnership between Atari and Decentral Games will see the launch of Atari Casino within Decentraland this coming May. The casino is expected to feature various Atari-themed games, playable with MANA tokens, the DAI stablecoin, Decentral Games’ own DG token, or Atari’s eponymous Atari Token (ATRI).
Decentral Games is a community-owned ecosystem-based inside Decentraland, which is governed by its own users with the help of a Decentralized Autonomous Organization in the DG DAO. A reported 88% of the profit share will be directed to the DG DAO Treasury.
Decentraland is a virtual realm built on Ethereum comprising 90,000 parcels of land, each measuring 16 square meters. Users can build a range of applications and structures inside Decentraland, including games, marketplaces, and stores for the sale of digital and physical goods.
The Atari Casino will be built on a 20 parcel piece of virtual land in the Casino Quarter section of Decentraland’s Vegas City. Atari pioneered multiple classic video games from the 1970’s onwards. Although the casino will largely be centred around games of chance, at least one offering from Atari will also be skill-based.
In the 24 hours following the announcement, the value of all three native tokens soared to double-digit gains, recording new all-time highs in the process.
Decentraland’s MANA token increased 31% on the day, climbing from a starting price of $0.447051 up to $0.587266. MANA surpassed its 2018 all-time high in February 2021, and Tuesday’s surged saw the token once again exceed its previous top.
Decentral Games’ DG token surged to a new all-time high on Tuesday, after a 21% upshot carried the token price from $233.51 up to $289.69. DG began trading on exchanges in December 2020.
Meanwhile, the value of Atari’s ATRI token jumped 85%, climbing from $0.198990 up to $0.369760 — also a new all-time high, exceeding the token’s previous ATH recorded soon after it commenced trading in November 2020. By the time of publication, the ATRI price had receded back to the $0.272 range, leaving the token up 36% in the past 24 hours.
The opening of the Atari Casino is expected to be celebrated with a launch party, pending an official announcement. Users will be given the opportunity to win various prizes, including non-fungible tokens and a share of ATRI and DG tokens.
The development arm behind Polkadot plans to develop and propose a new parachain governance framework called “Statemint.”
Parity Technologies, the company behind Polkadot, is planning to roll out a new parachain governance framework that could enhance the use case of the network.
“Statemint” is the first proposed common-good parachain for the Polkadot network, Parity Technologies announced Tuesday. A common-good parachain is a parachain that’s granted slots via governance as opposed to the auction mechanism that underlies Polkadot. The auction method doesn’t work effectively for all parachains — i.e., those that could be considered as “common goods.”
In other words, Statemint would allow Polkadot to offload many of its core features to special-purpose parachains while avoiding the free-rider problem.
As a so-called generic asset chain, the Statemint function would allow anyone to deploy an asset on the network as long as they put up collateral in the form of DOT, Polkadot’s native cryptocurrency, or KSM in the case of Kusama.
“Statemint will allow diverse entities, ranging from artists issuing tokens for their work to central banks issuing Central Bank Digital Currencies, to deploy their assets to the Polkadot network,” Parity Technologies explained, adding:
“By encoding these standards as first-class logic into the chain and allowing non-DOT-holding accounts to use the assets, users will face lower fees and friction when using their assets in the network.”
The Polkadot team didn’t specify when the Statemint generic asset chain would be proposed, but only that development will begin shortly.
As an interoperability-focused project, Polkadot has surged through the market crypto market rankings over the past year. Last week, DOT became the fourth largest crypto futures market, highlighting enormous demand for the asset. DOT is currently ranked sixth by total market capitalization, with a value of $31.4 billion, according to CoinGecko.
