OKEx COO resigns to launch new Blockchain consultancy institute, BitWork

RELATED TOPICS​

Andy Cheung has resigned as the COO of cryptocurrency exchange OKEx to launch a new blockchain consultancy institute, BitWork. With a team of experienced blockchain experts, BitWork offers exchange partnerships, advisory, marketing management, branding and public relations, fundraising, and event management services to cryptocurrency and blockchain projects.

“My goal is to drive mass cryptocurrency adoption. But my contribution can be very limited in a cryptocurrency exchange. I decided, and we agreed amicably, that I can better achieve my goals with a new venture. Still, it’s been an absolute pleasure to have served OKEx,” says Cheung. “The question I was always asked in OKEx was: How can my project get listed on your exchange? Like CZ (CEO of Binance) and a few more leaders in the industry, we always tell the teams that project quality is the key.

 

“But how to improve the quality of a project? What do the markets need? BitWork will help answer and provide solutions to these questions. By helping more projects to get exposure and connecting them to different markets, we strive to facilitate mass crypto adoption.”

 

Led by Cheung, BitWork will be based in Hong Kong. The startup comprises a team of experienced blockchain experts from different cryptocurrency exchanges. With a solid industry background, it provides bespoke consulting services to help cryptocurrency projects build and market their products – from exchange partnerships, advisory, marketing management, branding and public relations, fundraising, to event management services.

 

Cheung had been serving OKEx as COO since its launch. He oversaw the entire operations, marketing, and public relations of OKEx.
