According to the CEO of the crypto exchange Junyong Choi, there is a long-standing relationship and ties with the Korean blockchain. This was one of the few things that made the update fast and possible. He also mentioned that the technical know-how of the staff back at Huobi was also another integral factor that accelerated the partnership. He noted that Busan is rich in terms of owning facilities and infrastructure that could help spur the growth of crypto.

The CEO also noted that blockchain would be a tool for transforming other industries in the city. One of the critical features of the agreement is that the exchange will oversee everything related to the blockchain week, which will hold in Busan next month. Aside from Huobi, Binance have also penned down a deal to help foster blockchain development in the city. Binance will set up a branch in the company as described in the details of the announcement, with FTX following suit. Huobi, on the other hand, will not need to as it already boasts a massive presence across that area.
