Although the Chinese government has a love-hate relationship with crypto - from shutting down exchanges and ICO projects, halting financial institution funding, to blocking all overseas websites related to trading and ICOs - it hasn’t stopped the success some of the world’s top exchanges. The crypto world is global, as 70% of the exchanges with the highest trading volume come from China.
In this candid discussion, Edith Yeung of 500 Startups and Jason Lau of OKCoin will discuss how exchanges in China are keeping up their trade volume, continuing to grow its global users and overcoming government regulatory challenges. How are these exchanges secure and building trust with customers? What is next for the world of crypto?
