OKEx’s Success Mantra
OKEx’s exchange is not only geared towards institutions or full-time traders but also better suited to less experienced traders and retail investors. The company is a one-stop trading platform supporting fiat-to-crypto (C2C), crypto-to-crypto (spot), and derivatives (futures & perpetual swaps) trading.
Other than offering a wide array of digital asset trading services to the users, they embrace partnership innovation and collaborations through their initial in-house exchange offering (IEO) platform, called OKEx Jumpstart. It incubates high potential projects and supports early entrepreneurs by offering reliable utility token sales to the global user base. The IEO model is an ideal method for high-quality projects and early entrepreneurs to kick-start. All projects launched on OKEx Jumpstart gets listed on their spot market, and those with outstanding performance will even stand a chance to be listed on their C2C and derivatives markets.
OKEx value engagement with their communities, project teams, and investors worldwide convene leaders on a range of strategic blockchain-related issues through organizing rounds of OKEx TALKS.
The Road to Success is paved with Teamwork
The entire staff is proud to see what OKEx has achieved so far. In only two years’ time, they have launched OKEx’s global utility token, OKB, with a total supply of one billion tokens; OKEx Perpetual Swap along with a new risk management system; OKNodes, that aims to build a global blockchain ecosystem by supporting aspiring teams to set up their world-class crypto exchanges; and of course, the token sales platform, OKEx Jumpstart.
“The process of launching OKEx JumpStart to the world was not enough. The company had to maintain its strict review system and confront with compliance requirements at the same time. They had to screen every project thoroughly to ensure the entrepreneurs that they find are of the highest level in the industry. On the other hand, their legal team spent enormous efforts to find out the policy guidance document that matched the financial compliance requirements, so that the national regulatory authorities can be more assured. Now, we are all thrilled to see the fruitful outcomes of many OKEx Jumpstart projects.”
Team OKEx is all firm believers in the blockchain. The senior management team foresees that the technology will eliminate transaction barriers, elevate efficiency, and eventually make a substantial impact on the global economy.
