    Not mistakes . This is how it works in China .

    Every brand name , specially international brands have different namein china as per pinyin.

    1. VR domain (dao meng)
    2. Bibi is a brand and expensive resale for bibi domain. For easiness
    3. 8 is luckiest number and 800 is luckiest and best with it
    4. It’s ok to be long (not that much)
    5. Letters are the first char of each Mandarin word in English .
    6. YB are initial and rest is word

    And so on...

    You need to be in china , understand the markets and you will know how much it makes sense !
