In an update, the company said its tech team is working to resolve the service disruption and announcing the start of market pre-open. Its tweet regarding the same read,

“We are currently in cancel-only period. After which at 5:27pm UTC+8, trading will resume. We will do a post-mortem once everything is ok. Thank you for your patience.”

  • OKX added that it will soon publish a post-mortem of the entire event.
