Hong Kong’s securities regulator, the Securities and Futures Commission (SFC), has announced that OKX Hong Kong FinTech Company Limited has submitted an application for a virtual asset trading platform license. This makes OKX the first offshore exchange to formally apply for a compliance license in Hong Kong. The SFC’s list of applicants currently stands at seven companies. The move by OKX comes as Hong Kong looks to establish itself as a hub for digital asset trading and investment. The city’s government has been actively promoting the development of its fintech sector, and the SFC has been working to create a regulatory framework for virtual assets.
