According to a recent report by South Korean media outlet Sporbiz, which cites Hwaseong Jae Kyung, a commodity specialist in the Chinese virtual money market, Huobi earned 545.2 billion won ($483.9 million) in commission income last year, surpassing both Binance ($463.9 million) and OKEx ($293.4 million).
Although unconfirmed, the figures seem plausible based on data shared with us by Huobi about its new derivatives market (Huobi DM), which recently saw its trading volume surpass $20 billion after launching at the end of last year. Huobi DM currently offers long and short positions for Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH) and EOS (EOS).
