Representatives from the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange and trading platform, OKEx will be attending the upcoming London Blockchain Week 2020 event to exchange their views on digital assets and mainstream financial instruments. According to the company, the Financial Markets Director Lennix Lai, and the Financial Market Assistant Vice President Philip Glover will be part of the different panels during their attendance at the event.
Lennix Lai, who has been a very vocal proponent of the use of cryptocurrency to tackle the issues of “unbankedness” will be part of a panel on March 10, 2020. He is expected to share his opinions on the role of digital asset derivatives and sophisticated financial instruments during the CryptoCompare Digital Asset Summit. Meanwhile, Philip Grover will discuss mainstream maturity: crypto prime brokerage at the same event.
Looking forward to his participation in the event, Lennix Lai said, “London is one of the traditional world financial centers with complete financial infrastructures, a highly-inclusive market environment and a large number of world-class investment institutions. Currently, 70% of the trading volume on OKEx comes from institutional traders, and London has always been one of OKEx’s most important markets. With the development of digital assets globally, traditional institutions would be a blossom to the market. This is a perfect opportunity in connecting the traditional finance space and crypto space, a chance to better understand the derivatives and other financial instruments that OKEx provides.”
Similar to one of the earlier events at Davos along the sidelines of the World Economic Forum annual meeting, the London event is also a very important one, as the city is one of the major fintech destinations. Being one of the influential blockchain events in the world, developments during the London Blockchain Week will have a considerable impact on the global cryptocurrency landscape. The event is expected to host thousands of industry experts, investors, institutions, and digital asset enthusiasts.
OKEx is also hosting VIP Drinks on March 12, 2020, two days after their representatives’ presence at the cryptocurrency summit.
