Chinese video platform operator Lihuh has completed a series B round of financing worth tens of millions of dollars, led by Sequoia China, with participation from IDG Capital, Gaorong Capital, ZhenFund, GSR Ventures and Capital Today Limited.

"This round of financing will be used to increase R&D investment as strong technical products are primary elements for success in this field,” said Hou Mingqiang, co-founder and CTO of the company.
