Andy Cheung is a senior executive with extensive experience in the blockchain business in Asia-Pacific. He's worked for international enterprises including RR Donnelley Financials and Pacific Century CyberWorks, as well as tech firms like Huawei, Alibaba, Baidu, and Groupon.

 

Cheung is presently the founder and chairman of ACDX, a derivatives crypto exchange, as well as the co-founder and CEO of BitWork, a blockchain consultancy, after leaving OKEx in December 2019. He has a bachelor's degree in information technology and speaks English, Cantonese, Mandarin, and Afrikaans.

 

OKEx announced its collaboration with Klaytn, a global public blockchain platform established by Ground X, a subsidiary of South Korean tech giant Kakao, in late October. OKEx debuted Bitcoin futures contracts with the Tether (USDT) stable coin in November.

 

Soon afterward, the exchange announced cooperation with Ledger, a hardware wallet, Aliniex, a Vietnam-based OTC exchange, and Cryptomall, a blockchain-based shop, to enhance the reach and use of OKB, the OKEx exchange utility token. At the end of the year, Cheung quit OKEx to establish a blockchain consulting firm.

 

Cheung's focus after leaving OKEx will be on growing his new blockchain consultancy firm and attracting new clients, which shouldn't be too difficult given his track record and network in the Asia-Pacific area.
