Huobi Group has announced the establishment of a new decentralized finance (DeFi) ecosystem called Huobi DeFi Labs.
According to an official announcement, the new arm will focus on research, investment, and incubation of the DeFi market. Huobi's Chief Investment Officer Sharlyn Wu says there is also a lot of investor education to do in order to bring crypto and DeFi to mainstream users.
"As DeFi is still in its infancy, it needs collective efforts from the global community to build and grow the space together," Wu added.
Huobi will also allocate "tens of millions of dollars" to an initial investment fund, which will be regulated by Huobi DeFi Labs.
