OKX Entering Australia
Reporting at the Melbourne Arts Centre, the OKX business enablers Scotty James and Daniel Ricciardo analyzed the suitability of the Australian market. James and Ricciardo confessed that Australians demonstrated a “huge appetite” for cryptos. The high demand for crypto assets has inspired the OKX team to consider establishing a regional office in Australia.

A tweet from the OKX head of marketing, Haider Rafique, stated that Australia remains ahead of the curve in crypto education and training. Rafique believes that the rise of the crypto-savvy population in Australia will ease OKX’s entrance to the new market.
He stated that Australians are more informed on the endless benefits and opportunities of crypto and blockchain technologies now and in future.
OKX Next Move

The Swyftx team observed that more than 1 million Australians are willing to venture into the crypto space for the first time before 2024. The Swyftx argued that after 12 months, novice crypto entrepreneurs would reach 4% of the Australian population.
