VNX Exchange, a marketplace for tokenized venture capital assets, has hired Litecoin Foundation director Zing Yang to direct its upcoming push into Asia.

As VNX Exchange’s SVP and head of Asia, Ms. Yang will be responsible for establishing local footprint, ecosystem development and investor relations in the region, with a focus on Singapore, Hong Kong and South Korea.

“Being from Luxembourg, one of the leading global financial hubs with an excellent environment for fintech projects, has already attracted substantial interest from European investors, ecosystem partners, and venture funds,” VNX founder and CEO Alexander Tkachenko said. “We are seeing high demand from Asian investors and interest from the region’s venture community as VNX customers. Zing’s appointment will boost VNX Exchange’s recognition in Asia as she helps to build a strong ecosystem for our platform.”

Ms. Yang has a wide expertise in investment management including private equity, public equities, venture capital, and token investments. Besides investing, she is also active in use case consulting, strategy and business model design. Her previous experience includes working in leading investment companies such as Capital Group, Temasek and BlockAsset Ventures.

“I am very excited to join the VNX Exchange team at what is currently a promising time for venture market development,” Ms. Yang said. “While the global interest in ICO has decreased dramatically, the current global venture market is still healthy. With VNX seeking to unlock liquidity through blockchain technology, this solution will not only see high demand in Asia, but globally.”
