Furthermore, he expressed his objection to Huobi’s use of the Chinese characters ‘火币’ and ‘火幣’, which translate to ‘Huobi’ in English. According to Li, an agreement prohibits Huobi from using these terms in simplified or traditional Chinese. He demanded that the company immediately cease this alleged infringement and warned that their legal representatives will issue a letter to Huobi urging them to stop this infringement activity. He also indicated the possibility of taking other legal measures depending on the circumstances to protect his legal rights and interests.
