Q3. OKEx C2C loans just makes me realize that OKEx enters into DeFi. What’s your prospective for the most discussed topic of blockchain anc crypto circle DeFi & how Okex is coping with it?
Ans — Recent progress in the DEFI space is indeed impressive, but it is still early and new users should be cautious with their funds. This is where we see our role, for OKEx to introduce the average user savely to the DEFI space, while giving them access to the high yields. This is why we recently launched the Compound governance token $COMP to our margin trading offering https://twitter.com/OKEx/status/1277589894936907785. Another example is the User Experience,
which in DEFI differs for each APP. Whereas OKEx is able to provide one consistent interface for all DEFI applications. We also provide a safer environment to the masses of users, who don’t want to manage their funds’ keys. And finally, we provide risk management tooling to benefit both, lenders and borrowers. This way, we believe we can benefit the DEFI space as well as our business, and most importantly — the users. Trade $COMP on OKEx for a chance to win $20,000 USDT:
