Sergey Glazyev, advisor to Russian President Vladimir Putin and a member of the National Financial Council of the Central Bank of Russia, met Huobi founder and CEO Leon Li on the 17th of September at Huobi’s Beijing offices.
The meeting was to discuss blockchain technology with Glazyev seemingly trying to tempt Huobi to move to Russia or to set-up a branch there. Glazyev said:
“The combination of Huobi’s experience to implement in Russia will have a positive effect on Russia’s economic growth. Therefore, I believe this is a great opportunity to explore this area.”
