Китайский видеохостинг назван в честь Бири-БириXu Yi was an AcFun user in 2009. He was unsatisfied by the instability of the service and decided to create an alternative out of fun. He spent three days and created a prototype website named Mikufans.cn as a fandom community of Hatsune Miku. As it grew, he reshaped the website to specialize in video sharing and launched it on January 14, 2010 with the name Bilibili (bilibili.us), which is the nickname of the protagonist Mikoto Misaka in the anime A Certain Scientific Railgun for her electric superpower. Bilibili also names many of its features with reference to this anime, such as to give a "coin" to a user as contribution, which is the reference to Mikoto Misaka's preference to use coins to shoot her electricity. On top of that, Bilibili celebrates Mikoto Misaka's birthday on its homepage every 2 May.
