OKEx announced that it is joining Klaytn, a global public blockchain platform developed by Kakao subsidiary Ground X.

On Oct. 25, OKEx wrote in a press release that blockchain project Klaytn will be onboarding the crypto exchange into their ecosystem aiming to expand blockchain adoption.

OKEx is joining a number of industry giants such as Samsung Blockchain, IDG Capital, and Shinhan Bank. The exchange called this partnership an opportunity to build a stable blockchain ecosystem and connect to different networks and portfolios in the blockchain industry. Andy Cheung, Head of Operations of OKEx, commented on the partnership:

“Exchanges and projects itself should work together to define and adopt standards that will promote digital asset adoption globally.”

Recently, cryptocurrency exchange Binance joined Klaytn’s governance council. Binance, together with another 24 member companies such as LG Electronics, Unionbank of the Philippines and Celltrion, will make key decisions for Klaytn’s business and technical developments.
