The Story Behind OKB

In 2018, OKEx, which rebranded to OKX four years later, introduced OKB to its platform. OKB was initially and ERC-20 token but integrated into the exchange’s own blockchain, the OKExChain in 2019.

According to the developers, OKExChain aims to provide a scalable infrastructure for $OKB and the OKX ecosystem. 

Initially, the OKX team planned to cap $OKB at one billion tokens. However, the 700 million $OKB, which were locked up for rewarding loyal users, funding the OK Blockchain Foundation, and supporting the company’s operations, were burned. This made the total supply of $OKB to 300 million. 

$OKB Advantages

As OKX’s utility token, $OKB holders can receive up to 40% discounts on trading fees. It is also accepted as payment for BitTorrent subscriptions and on Alchemy Pay and Now Payments. 

Furthermore, OKX users can stake their $OKB on the exchange’s “OKX Earn” feature to earn free TONCOIN tokens. 

Moreover, the OKB team assured token holders they could access OKX’s special features, vote and be part of the governance that will affect the platform’s performance, and first try those newly introduced services on the platform. 

$OKB holders are also allowed to participate in token pre-sales on the exchange’s Jumpstart feature and access new token offering on OKX.
