“The crypto market has been undergoing an unprecedented time, particularly the recent bitcoin slump and the global impact brought by the coronavirus. Given the drastic changes in consumers’ internet browsing behaviors, we observe their investment strategies and portfolio are showing new patterns,” said Jay Hao, CEO of OKX. “Our team has started to investigate and study the new set of data, so as to get prepared for the future. I think exchanges need to re-evaluate the market, and it will be a new stage of the game when the current storm is over.”

Crypto exchanges hit an all-time-high in daily transaction volume of $53 Bn on 12 March 2020, the day when the bitcoin price crashed. According to a tweet of Hao, the trading platform processed approx. 300k orders/sec during the volatile period and the trading service was delivered stably. What’s more, OKX also claimed to maintain a record of zero clawback throughout the market crash.
