We move forward as one

Mission

We are more than a blockchain settlement company. We are striving to change the world's financial economy.

Technology has transformed our lives to allow the Apollo mission to land on the moon, to use a smartphone to hail an Uber at anytime, and to send email or a photo to anyone instantly and for free. Yet the world's financial transfers are still reliant on the same outdated technology built at least half a century ago. In many countries, the cost of global financial access surpasses that of basic education and medical care. That is about to change.

Our team is experienced in internet technology and global finance and come to OKLink after time at Alibaba, Tencent, Baidu, Visa, Yahoo, IBM, Barclays, cfX, Federal Reserve Bank, FDIC and PwC. We are making global transfers easier, faster, cheaper, safer and transparent, coupled with an exceptional user-interface that all financial partners and consumers will love.

How are we able to accomplish this? Instead of building on the edges of a closed and proprietary settlement infrastructure, we have built OKLink on top of open internet protocols including the blockchain. Using our technology and services, our financial partners are able to capitalize on the trust and efficiency of the blockchain to transform the way global transfers are provided to their customers.

It's time we use technology to improve our financial system together.
