              Please respond to these comments within ten business days by

       information or advise us as soon as possible when you will respond. If
you do not believe our
       comments apply to your facts and circumstances, please tell us why in

   1.                                                   We note that during
both the second and third quarters of 2020, the total number of paying
                                                        users of YY decreased
compared to the corresponding periods of 2019. Your disclosures
                                                        indicate this decline
was due to COVID-19 impacts. Please revise future filings and
                                                        supplementally explain
in greater detail how COVID-19 negatively impacted the number
                                                        of paying users of YY
while the average mobile MAUs for YY global live streaming
                                                        services increased over
the same periods.
