Former OKX Investment Head Accused of Sexual Harassment
Jun Yu, former head of OKX Investment and co-founder of A&T Capital subsidiary Ant Financial, is said to be facing serious allegations of sexual harassment from several women, including his employees at A&T Capital.
The allegations were made public via social media, with one Twitter user, sukie.eth, saying that Yu sexually harassed her.
Crypto reporter Colin Wu amplified the woman’s allegations in a tweet, noting that Yu was a frequent criminal, with more than one woman making the same accusations against him.
A woman quits her job after allegedly being harassed
Tweeting in Chinese, sukie.eth alleged that Yu made inappropriate advances towards her in June 2022 while working as an intern at an A&T office in Shanghai.
In the lengthy post on Twitter, she repelled Yoo’s advances but had to quit her job.
According to her, since her allegations against Yu would have been weak due to a lack of solid evidence, she chose her career and that of her colleagues over the pursuit of justice.
The Twitter user also alleged that Yu tried to give her 20,000 yuan to rent a house, which she refused. The only money she asked for was three months’ salary as compensation for the work she did at A&T Capital.
Sukie.eth says it only came forward after reports emerged that Yu had sexually assaulted another A&T employee with impunity.
A&T and OKX mum over allegations
Coleen Wu tweeted that Jun Yoo had initially made a social media post denying the sexual harassment allegations and calling it a rumour, which she later deleted.
To date, neither A&T Capital nor OKX has responded to the claims. However, according to Wu, OKX distanced itself from Yu, saying he only worked with the company between March 2018 and June 2019. It did not receive any negative reports against him during that time.
OKX’s connection to Yu, however tenuous, received more bad publicity after the exchange announced it was leaving the Canadian market following new regulatory requirements by the Canadian Securities Administrator (CSA).
