One of the globally leading crypto exchange Bitfinex is listing OKEx’s token OKB and USDK on its platform. The latter is a co-developed stablecoin of the blockchain tech firm OKLink. The trading pairs will officially open on Bitfinex from 10 am on June 13, 2019. There are nine new trading pairs including USDK/USD, BTC/USDK, ETH/USDK, USDT/USDK, EOS/USDK, OKB/USD, OKB/BTC, OKB/ETH, and OKB/USDT.
OKEx’s native token is now processing in the Ethereum network (ERC 20). It has decided to shift on its under-developing blockchain named OKChain later this year. OKB allows its users to do various tasks such as settling trading fees, to form partner exchange and subscribing for new tokens on OK Jumpstart. OK Jumpstart is one of the token sale platforms of OKEx.
Andy Cheung, OKEx’s Head of Operations says that they intend to work on economic growth with blockchain technology. It requires a joint effort from leading industry players. The firm will further continue to embrace such collaborations with other companies. Last week, OKLink collaborated with US-based crypto custodian Prime Trust to introduce its stablecoin USDK on OKEx. OKEx is the sister company to OKLink and is building its own decentralizing exchange (DEX).
