OKX, a cryptocurrency exchange, wants to hire roughly 100 individuals in France over the next three years, joining 74 other companies that have already received regulatory approval from the country’s Financial Markets Authority (AMF). The Seychelles-based company has applied to be recognised as a Digital Asset Service Provider (DASP). It intends to develop a “substantial” physical presence in France, according to Tim Byun, the company’s head of worldwide government relations. It is not the only cryptocurrency exchange looking to establish a presence in the European Union’s second-largest economy. Following its DASP registration last year, France emerged as Binance’s preferred European Union (EU) hub destination.
