OKX Expands Australian Services Amid Asia-Pacific Growth

OKX Expands Australian Services Amid Asia-Pacific Growth

OKX, a prominent cryptocurrency exchange, is expanding its presence in the Asia-Pacific region by relocating its Australian-focused services to a locally regulated entity.

During a recent media event in Sydney on May 14, OKX President Hong Fang expressed enthusiasm for the Australian market, citing its dynamic customer base and interest in technology among investors.

The move to establish a local entity underscores OKX’s commitment to the Australian market, with the exchange opening an office in the country in March of last year.

The transition to on-shore entities, OKX Australia Pty Ltd and OKX Australia Financial Pty Ltd, enables the exchange to comply with Australian laws, including suitability assessments and definitions of wholesale clients.

Despite regulatory challenges, Fang praised Australian regulators for their transparency and engagement. OKX has adjusted its services to comply with local laws, including discontinuing copy trading, yield-bearing products, and trading of certain tokens.

Regarding payment and banking partnerships, Fang expressed confidence in OKX’s due diligence process, ensuring compliance with regulations and preempting potential issues.

OKX currently ranks as the third-largest cryptocurrency exchange globally by volume, according to CoinGecko, with $2.8 billion in trading volume over the past day.
