And now according to a Bloomberg article, the Singapore-based DBS bank is envisioning building its crypto business in the territory.

DBS Bank and Huobi Announce Hong Kong Expansion Plans

Sebastian Paredes, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) at DBS, said in a statement, “We are planning to apply for a license in Hong Kong so that the bank could sell digital assets to our Hong Kong customers.”

Last year, Singapore’s largest bank opened its door for crypto and enabled trading services for Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, and Ripple.

Justin Sun’s Huobi exchange also plans to expand to the territory due to the country’s shifting attitude towards a crypto. Sun believes the territory is “one of the experiment zones for crypto development in China.”

In Jan., he mentioned on Twitter that China would dominate the new bull market through Hong Kong.
