Overview OKX

OKX Exchange

July 24th of 2017 marked a new milestone for OKX (formerly OKEx) exchange with the successful completion of their record-breaking ICO on OK Blockchain Capital in Beijing, China. OKX cryptocurrency exchange's ICO was able to raise over $100 million in 90 minutes, despite China's cryptocurrency ban.

The exchange was created to serve these main purposes for users:

To provide cryptocurrency traders with safe and convenient cryptocurrency trading markets for digital asset transactions between users;
To enable the cryptocurrency-based Initial Coin Offering to operate along with the cryptocurrency trading market in one place;
To become a top tier exchange, the platform offering services around the world, connecting cryptocurrency traders from over 100 countries and regions.

OKX cryptocurrency exchange has a transaction volume of more than 6.4 billion US dollars (according to Coinmarketcap 10th August, 2021). The number of transactions is about 1.4 million per day. Based on the above data, OKX can be called the world's top cryptocurrency exchange.

OKXChain is blockchain-powered by the OKX team. This decentralized trading application provides an open-source infrastructure that can be used to build any number of different decentralized exchanges. The technology was designed to make finance available and accessible so that investors are able to control their assets with ease while still being confident in the transparency around how trades happen on this DEX created through OKExChain's platform.

From the successful mainnet launched on Jan 15th 2021, the OKExChain ecosystem grew rapidly with new digital wallets and security partners.


The total value locked on the blockchain already reached 7 billion US dollars after just 7 days.

OKT is the native token of the OKXChain ecosystem, providing immediate utility and benefits — such as voting rights, staking privileges and transaction fee payment — for decentralized exchanges.

The OKT genesis block will contain an initial minting of 10 million tokens that can be distributed to all those who stake their shares on this network. Its halving model is similar to Bitcoin in which its reward diminishes every three years with a total supply limit of 41.9 million tokens.


What is OKB token?

OKB is a blockchain-based utility token created by the OK Blockchain Foundation. It aims to connect prospective digital asset projects to OKX users as well as professional investors, creating an ecosystem of collaboration for the advancement of blockchain technology and innovation

OKT and OKB are two tokens that have different features. Specifically, while both can be used to trade cryptocurrency on the platform, they will cater towards entirely different use cases with their differing functions; one being a native token of an existing blockchain network and the other designed for trading purposes only.
