Following the listing announcement, Andy Cheung, Head of Operations of OKEx appreciated Tezos and mentioned;
"Tezos is a highly respected project with a robust community, and we're happy to be able to add the value of the XTZ network to the OKEx ecosystem, where we strive to deliver a one-stop-shop for professional and retail traders,"
It’s worth noting that OKEx is a Malta-headquartered crypto exchange with its service spread across various countries. On the other side, Tezos is an open-source platform for assets, founded by Ex-official of Morgan Stanley Arthur Breitman and Kathleen Breitman. Interestingly, the platform often appears with the active community on social media. Echoing the simlar concern of OKEx’s head of operation, Corey Soreff who is Board of Directors of Tezos Commons Foundation emphasized;
"We are looking forward to a thriving relationship with OKEx, a global leader in the blockchain space, in furthering the Tezos ecosystem together in Asia and throughout the world,"
