OKEx (www.okex.com), the world-leading digital asset exchange, has announced its OKEx Global University Meetup Schedule to bring in industry’s experts to share inspirational speeches and discussions about the blockchain revolution and its implications to the world’s development with university students.

The tour will start off in the U.S. with five top universities, including University of California-Berkeley in San Francisco, University of Southern California in Los Angeles, Harvard University in Boston, Columbia University in New York, and Yale University in New Haven in early November. University students have opportunities to learn more about how the industry has been doing and the prospect of blockchain technology. Also, they can meet HR representatives from the exchanges and projects to seek career opportunities in the blockchain industry.

"We take blockchain education as our social responsibility. That’s why we spend lots of effort in visiting different communities and different generations and introducing blockchain technology to them," said Andy Cheung, Head of Operations of OKEx. "Through the university meetups, we'd like to share with the future leaders about our mission and vision about blockchain. After a decade of rapid development, blockchain is influencing the world like never before.
