OKEx Celebrates First Anniversary in Malta

OKEx, a leading global crypto exchange, is set to celebrate the first anniversary of launching its headquarters in Malta. Since its launch one year ago, the firm joined hands with MSX, Malta Stock Exchange Holdings’ digital and FinTech arm. Through this partnership, the two parties rolled out OKMSX, an institutional-grade exchange for security tokens to underpin Malta’s “Blockchain Island” initiative.

OKMSX uses OKEx’s crypto operations and technical knowledge in alliance with Malta Stock Exchange’s experience in regulatory compliance and client due diligence in its operations. After a year of gearing up, the exchange is now in its final development stages and is set to go live in the first quarter of 2020. It aims to serve clients across the globe.
