We’re excited to welcome another major addition to our leadership team: Raphael Polansky. As Chief Operating Officer, Raphael is in charge of managing our operations and infrastructure, driving business growth and market expansion, and transforming BitMEX into a full crypto investment ecosystem. Raphael reports directly to our CEO, Alexander Höptner.

Raphael said: “I’m grateful for the opportunity to drive the continued growth of BitMEX. We have a strong pipeline of projects planned for 2022 and beyond, and a solid team of talented and innovative people with a common goal of building a better global financial ecosystem. I’m excited to lead our crypto operations and expansion during such a transformational time for us and the industry as a whole.”
