OKEx becomes world's largest crypto exchange, CEO resigns to start a new life

Chris Lee CEO of the  cryptocurrency exchange platform  OKEx, has resigned due to ‘personal reasons’. OKEx recently overtook Binance as the largest cryptocurrency exchange in the world with a 24 hour turnover of $2 billion. 

Bloomberg has reported on an email sent by the Hong Kong exchange, where it stated that Lee wished to ‘start a new life’ and wanted to spend some time with his family before returning to the world of blockchain.

OKEx traded over $2.07 billion in volume over the last 24 hours according to coinmarketcap.com, making it the world's largest and most widely-used crypto exchange.  It has also been in the news for the major losses incurred by investors attempting to short EOS and BTC.
