The move was announced on 23rd of January for the very first time, and from here the exchange went ahead to onboard different merchants who are within the new market. This is not all as OKEx has also outlined that with the addition crypto to fiat trading pairs was actually pushed by the growing demands that are taking place in the global market.

The exchange is Malta-based and recently went to host a conference in the city of Bangkok, which is called the MindXchange. This was to ensure it brings about different leaders together in a platform they will be able to exchange the different ideas they have for the blockchain technology.

The crypto market in Thailand

In the past few years, the market regulators in Thailand had sent a mixed response in regards to the crypto market. But at the moment the country has gone ahead to take the necessary steps to streamline its current regulatory framework for the digital asset market.

As it was reported by the Finance Magnates back in January, the Thai Finance Ministry had gone ahead to grant operating licenses to about four of the crypto exchanges that are within the country. Plus, there are a few south-east Asian players who are also in line in serving the Thai market, this is also including the current Thai Stock Exchange.
