OKEx left without CEO

Posted 14 May, 2018

Chris Lee, CEO in OKEx bitcoin platform, has unexpectedly left the office. 

For reference, OKEx is one of the major global trading platforms. Chris Lee has resigned just when the exchange commenced international expansion and came from behind in terms of the daily trading amount over the past week.

According to Bloomberg report, the company explains CEO's leaving for his personal purposes, citing Lee's intentions "to start the new life". Moreover, the statements read that Chris Lee is willing to make some break and spend more with family. It is possible that he can return to this business area through time.

OKEx is yet to announce the new CEO of the platform.

For reference, OKEx used to be located in continental China under company name – OKCoin. It was one of the most popular exchanges in the world. Nevertheless, the management was forced to relocate to Hong Kong under Beijing's pressure. As a result, the exchange resumed its activity under a new name.

According to available data, trading volume on the platform exceeded $2.1 billion, hitting the Binance results ($1.9 billion).

As it was reported earlier, OKEx is planning to launch a business in Malta, seeing good perspective for further development in this country.
