Hong Fang is the CEO of Okcoin, a global, US-licensed cryptocurrency platform serving 192 countries — the largest reach of any US-based exchange. Having experienced the opening of China’s economy, Hong worked at Goldman Sachs for nearly a decade, driven by her passion for free markets. She left Wall Street for cryptocurrency after realizing digital assets offer the financial inclusion that traditional finance only claims to.

She holds an MBA in Finance, Accounting and Entrepreneurship from the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business.
