What is OKB?

OKB is the exchange's own token issued by the OK Blockchain Foundation, accepted by OKEx as its global service token. OKB holders can enjoy several benefits from discounts on commissions and voting rights, to rewards and gifts. 

Initially, it runs under the ERC-20 protocol standard, and later transferred to its own public blockchain called OKChain. OKB is accepted on the OKEx cryptocurrency exchange and has become an important part of OKEx's architecture and development. Thanks to the mutually complementary relationship, OKB is used not only on the OKEx platform, but also in other related projects in which it is invested.

What is unique about the OKB token?

OKEx (www.okex.com) is the world's leading digital asset exchange, providing global traders with advanced financial services such as fiat-token, token-token and derivatives exchanges. Implementing the main idea of the blockchain-transparent exchange of information through a decentralized database, OKEx launched a token exchange system, distributing 60% of OKB tokens to OKEx users for free, which allows each user to participate and contribute to the development of the platform. 

OKE allows you to use traditional trading pairs, as well as derivatives and other advanced trading features. OKB provides its token holders with a discount on service fees, voting rights, the opportunity to invest in projects on OKEx Jumpstart, as well as other benefits. 

From OKEx there are several incubators in the block chain, focused on growing startups. The company has also established partnerships with various businesses, which will allow it to remain flexible in the coming years.
