- APRObit will be the first exchange in South Korea to adopt Bitfinex's joint order book system, which shares the market depth of Bitfinex's BTC, ETH, and USDT trading pairs

Park Jae-Soon, the founder of Tokenman, South Korea's first IEO exchange, will serve as the Chairman of the new exchange. Park has tremendous experience in cryptocurrency industry. He is a cryptocurrency business strategist and he had served at Bitman, South Korea's largest cryptocurrency community.

Under the acceleration of Bitwork, a blockchain consultancy led by Andy Cheung, APRObit comprised a strong advisory board, formed a global alliance of blockchain companies, and found the solution to the challenge of order book liquidity, which is a major concern to new-established exchanges.

Chinese billionaire Zhao Dong, who is a Bitfinex shareholder and the founder of Renrenbit, a peer-to-peer lending platform, and also tech entrepreneur Andy Cheung, the ex-COO of OKEx, and now the CEO of Bitwork, a blockchain consultancy, and founder of ACDX, a derivatives cryptocurrency exchange, are both the investors and advisors of APRObit.
