Looking through the information on the Internet, a YouTube channel called "Unimall" uploaded a video of "the first anniversary of the establishment of the Nine Coin Exchange" in 2020. The quality of the video is rough, and the content shows that the exchange was founded by a Malaysian Dato.

The YouTube channel also introduced that Unimall is headquartered in Hong Kong, operating blockchain, insurance, finance and other businesses, and has held cross-border e-commerce summits in Malaysia, Hong Kong, Cambodia and Singapore. But the website in the film is no longer accessible.

Unimall also claimed to be an agent of AXA General Insurance (AXA). However, in August this year, AXA Macau issued an announcement alleging that Unimall claimed to have a cooperative relationship with AXA without authorization.

In the HOUNAX fraud case, the original name of the affiliated company was "Nine Coins", and the website is now inaccessible.
