金杜律师事务所作为Open ANX Foundation Limited（Open ANX 基金）的香港法和中国法法律顾问，协助其于2017年6月22日完成首次加密代币发售。作为香港地区该领域的首个项目，此次发售在最初12小时内即募集了相当于1500万美元的资金（总发售目标为2250万美元）。
King & Wood Mallesons (KWM) has advised the Open ANX Foundation Limited as Hong Kong and PRC counsel on its initial cryptographic token sale, which launched on 22 June 2017. The first of its kind in Hong Kong, the sale raised the equivalent of approximately USD15 million within its first 12 hours (out of the overall target of USD22.5 million).
Open ANX基金隶属于ANX国际（ANX International）。ANX国际是一家位于香港的业界领先金融科技公司，也是全球领先的区块链开发公司。
The Open ANX Foundation was established under the direction of ANX International – an industry-leading, Hong Kong-based financial technology firm that is one of the world’s leading blockchain development firms.
随着定制加密代币OAX的发展，Open ANX基金将主导在以太坊区块链之上运行的开源、去中心化数字资产交易平台——OpenANX平台的开发。Open ANX基金旨在将集中交易和其他市场参与者聚集到一起，进而开创一种流动性的、透明可靠的加密货币生态系统。
Along with the development of OAX, a bespoke cryptographic token, the Open ANX Foundation will oversee the initial development of an open source, decentralised digital asset exchange, the OpenANX Platform, on the Ethereum blockchain. Open ANX Foundation aims to bring together centralised exchanges and other market participants to create a liquid, transparent and reliable cryptocurrency ecosystem.
“The KWM team far surpassed expectations,” said David Tee, Secretary of the Foundation and one of the founders of the project. “They quickly grasped a deep understanding of the OpenANX initiative and were able to provide critical guidance on the myriad intricacies involved – not only for the project, but also for the token sale process as well. KWM’s involvement and commitment were key in getting this fundraising done.”
金杜香港办公室合伙人邬素岚（Urszula McCormack）评论此项目时谈到，“我们很高兴可以协助Open ANX基金的代币销售项目。Open ANX基金团队和顾问的专业能力，以及他们在紧迫交付时间条件下表现出的超凡协作，确保了发售的顺利执行。”她还补充到，“这个项目是香港金融科技行业具有重要开创性意义的先导项目。它也展示了以太坊为基础的解决方案日益增强的信心，该解决方案体现了加密货币市场的日趋成熟和对真正创新技术项目的强劲需求。”
Commenting on the deal, lead KWM Hong Kong partner Urszula McCormack said, “We were delighted to assist Open ANX Foundation on the token sale. The professionalism of the Open ANX Foundation team and its advisors, and their exceptional degree of collaboration against a very tight deadline, ensured the smooth execution of the sale.” She added, “This is a ground-breaking initiative for the Hong Kong fintech industry. It also demonstrates growing confidence in Ethereum-based solutions, a maturing of the cryptocurrency market and strong demand for genuinely innovative technology projects.”
