OKG Tech CEO Mr. Ren Yunan said: “At OKG Tech, we believe that regulatory technology will greatly facilitate the virtual assets industry’s growth. On one hand, it can assist organizations in their compliance efforts, and on the other hand, it can empower regulatory agencies.

In the near future, we will continue to deepen our technological expertise and innovation to actively foster the compliant and sustainable development of the virtual asset industry.”

The launch of OKLink On-chain AML follows the implementation of Hong Kong’s new licensing regime for virtual asset service providers (VASPs), which came into force on June 1, 2023. The new VASP guidelines include various measures to protect investors, such as safe custody of assets, segregation of client assets and cybersecurity standards. With VASPs now within the regulatory framework of Hong Kong, there will be an increased focus on regulatory compliance requirements, including AML and on-chain transaction monitoring.
