Chris Lee, the former CEO of Hong Kong-based crypto exchange OKEx, will now be joining rival company Huobi as Board Secretary and Vice President of Global Business Development. In this role, Chris will lead Huobi Group’s global M&A strategy and oversee the development of international teams.
LEON LI, founder, and CEO of Huobi Group, said sharing the statement,
“This year, we’re making major investments in growing the global blockchain and digital asset ecosystem and I am confident in Chris’s passion and ability to help us capture this blue ocean opportunity,”
The new appointment comes just a week after Lee announced his resignation from OKEx on WeChat – a departure that came after just months as the platform’s CEO.
“Licenses and guidelines will lead to more product diversification and participation. We will likely see growth in both utility and security tokens, digital asset-related financial derivatives, and the digitization of physical assets. These are all massive markets that we want to capture to maintain our first-mover advantage.”
“I am a big believer in blockchain technology and view exchanges as the heart of the industry. Huobi Group has built a strong foundation, from the popularity of its exchange to the investments the company has made in the global blockchain ecosystem. The combination of the team’s technical expertise with industry-leading marketing and operational abilities positions it to become the Goldman Sachs of this new era in finance. If done properly, Huobi may even be bigger than Goldman one day.”
