OKX Exchange, one of the leading cryptocurrency exchanges, announced today that it is expanding its token listings for retail investors in Hong Kong.
According to the official statement by OKX Exchange, the listed tokens available for retail investors in Hong Kong include popular cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Cardano (ADA), Polygon (MATIC), Solana (SOL), Polkadot (DOT), Uniswap (UNI), Chainlink (LINK), Sandbox (SAND), Litecoin (LTC), Avalanche (AVAX), Axie Infinity (AXS), Cosmos (ATOM), Stellar (XLM), USDT, and USDC
The decision to include these tokens in the OKX Exchange’s offerings for Hong Kong retail investors stems from the requirements set by the Hong Kong government. The government mandates that tokens purchased by retail investors need to be included in the two major cryptocurrency indexes launched by traditional financial institutions. These indexes have a minimum requirement of tokens being active for at least 12 months.
Although BCH (Bitcoin Cash) is the only token currently included in the traditional entry index, it is noteworthy that OKX HK has not listed it.
