According to Bloomberg, one of the largest Bitcoin-exchanges was left without a CEO. This post used to be occupied by Chris Lee.
Chris Lee resigned just when the stock exchange started a large-scale international expansion and took the leading position in terms of the volume of trades sold in one day.
Bloomberg received an email describing the reason for Chris Lee’s resignation. The message stated that the former CEO of the company left the workplace due to personal reasons, which also include the desire to “start a new life.”
Chris’s representative commented on the situation, noting that he just wants to take a break from his career, switching his attention to the family. After a pause, Lee will return to work in the blockchain community.
There has been no information so far on who take up the vacancy in the company.
Earlier, the OKEx exchange was named OKCoin and was located on the territory of China. It also enjoyed wide popularity among the world’s trading platforms. As a result of pressure from the authorities of the country, the exchange was forced to move to Hong Kong, where it received the current name.
The volume of trade transactions within the exchange in just one day exceeded $2.1 billion, which is more than the one of the Binance exchange ($1.9 billion) which has exactly the same demand.
We remind you that the representatives of the exchange made an announcement in April, which told about the opening of a new office in Malta. In their opinion, it will positively affect the profitability of OKEx.
