OKCoin, a South Korean cryptocurrency exchange, has appointed Randi Zuckerberg, the sister of Meta (Facebook) CEO Mark Zuckerberg, to lead the brand’s advisory council in order to recruit more women to the cryptocurrency business.

Okcoin’s goal is to have 50% of its clients be female by 2025. The programme will be funded with $1 million.

Meta (previously Facebook) co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s elder sister is an entrepreneur, the founder of the social networking site Zuckerberg Media, and the author of several books. Randy was the director of market development and a Facebook spokeswoman for her brother’s company for ten years.

She will lead the council at Okcoin and assist the company in attracting women to crypto projects, blockchain programmes, and other activities under her direction.

In a video announcing her shift to Okcoin, Zuckerberg stated:

“Crypto and this new era of wealth creation should be open to everyone. I’ve joined Okcoin’s advisory council to support that mission and bring more women into the world of crypto.”

OKCoin’s CEO, Hong Fang, stated:

“Historically, women and other marginalized social groups have been isolated from the traditional financial system. Cryptocurrencies are changing this norm.”
