Furthermore, he spearheaded the research into OKCoin’s European expansion in early 2018, leading to the opening of its Malta Office and launching its Euro-book in October 2018.

Byun, being the GGRO of OKGroup, will focus on increasing geographic expansion and maintaining constant dialogues with governments and regulators around the world on behalf of OKCoin and OKGroup.

Byun stated that the crypto industry will become more global and universal with the collaboration of governments that have developed new regulatory frameworks such as Germany and France. He added that, working transparently with regulators and governments will help the crypto industry grow safely and soundly. He mentioned that the new appointment is an exciting one and a rare opportunity for OKGroup to expand its territories.
