OKX will cooperate with Hong Kong regulators

Earlier this year, OKX announced that it had established an entity in Hong Kong to seek to be licensed under the city’s new regulatory regime, for Digital Asset Service Providers (VASPs), which comes into effect on June 1.

OKX’s Global Chief Commercial Officer, Lennix Lai, said the exchange looks forward to working with Hong Kong regulators every step of the way.

Lai said:

“We are committed to providing users with the most secure and intuitive cryptocurrency trading experience in line with the latest requirements of the Hong Kong government. We will continue to work with Hong Kong regulators in our licensing efforts under the new VASP regime and invest in making this city a vibrant hub of digital assets in support of the government’s policy objectives.”
