Miami’s Crypto Capital continues to grow, with another cryptocurrency exchange setting down roots in the Magic City – and potentially bringing along up to 100 new jobs.
Okcoin, one of the world's fastest-growing cryptocurrency trading platforms, today announced the imminent opening of its Miami office, in Brickell, which will also serve its growing customer base in Latin America. The San Francisco-based company, now with seven offices globally, has about 10 employees in South Florida already.
Okcoin joins Blockchain.com, FTX and eToro – the trading platforms have all announced Miami relocations or office expansions in the past three months.
"Our new Miami location is a strategic expansion that enables us to meet the rapid increase in Latin American cryptocurrency adoption while also complementing Mayor Suarez's commitment to making the city a hub for technology development," said Hong Fang, CEO of Okcoin, in a statement. "We're pleased to be a part of Miami's vibrant and growing cryptocurrency community, and look forward to contributing to it with new jobs, support for local tech events, and more."
