OKLink joins a chorus of leading companies in the Bitcoin space calling for sound public policy concerning the technology.

Coin Center is pleased to announce that OKLink, the consumer product of the leading Chinese Bitcoin exchange OKCoin, has become the first international company to join the ranks of Coin Center’s Benefactors. With their support, OKLink joins a chorus of leading companies in the Bitcoin space calling for sound public policy concerning the technology.

“We believe strongly in Jerry Brito and Coin Center’s Bitcoin advocacy efforts with policy makers and regulatory staff in the United States,” said Star Xu, CEO of OKLink & OKCoin. “Supporting sound public policy is important for us as a global financial technology company.”

Their support, along with that of our many business and individual contributors, demonstrates a clear need for an organization to advocate for a smart, light-touch regulatory approach for Bitcoin and digital currency technology. We know that getting this right is important. Our growing roster of support indicates many others do too.

Coin Center’s mission is to build a better understanding of cryptocurrency technology among policymakers and to lobby for a regulatory climate that preserves the freedom to innovate. With a team of full-time experienced professionals, we’re building a credible institution that can be a serious resource for regulators and the media. But we need your help!

We rely on contributions from the community to fund our work. About half of our support comes from individual donors. You too can support our Bitcoin advocacy work by donating to us today. As a bonus, you will receive a special thank you gift for your contribution. You can even support us while sporting your Bitcoin pride by purchasing one our limited edition alpaca socks t-shirt.
