“This is an exciting time for OKEx, we plan to open new offices in more regions to better serve our users, and we’ve already started recruiting passionate blockchain professionals to grow and prosper together. We expect a 100 per cent increase in the total number of staff in two years serving customers from around the world,” says Jay Hao, CEO of OKEx.

Hao says that OKEx is launching a Beacon Program in the European regions to support those who are interested in blockchain and crypto, a move which he says also serves as an opportunity to nurture potential talents for teh company.

The OKEx Beacon Program will recruit a total of six mentees for a one-month exclusive mentorship with Hao and Director of Financial Markets Lennix Lai. Mentees will get to join a 30-minute weekly mentoring session on Telegram. In addition, they will also participate in masterclasses given by industry professionals on a specific topic in blockchain and crypto, be shared with daily news digest, industry researches, and product knowledge every day and be guided through by the OKEx team, and outstanding performers will get the chance to join the OKEx team in the future.
