Andy Cheung has resigned as the COO of OKEx, a leading cryptocurrency exchange, to start a new blockchain consultancy institute, BitWork. With a team of experienced blockchain experts, BitWork will offer 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, its been an absolute pleasure to have served OKEx. 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.”
– Andy Cheung, Founder of BitWork
