OKB (OKB): Project Review, Recent Developments, Future Events, Community

OKB, the utility token issued by OKX, formerly OKEx, is the best-performing top 100 crypto of the week, gaining 2.1% in a catastrophic market.

OKX announced that it had burnt an equivalent of $68 million in OKB, reducing the supply of the token.

The exchange has also integrated Avalanche (AVAX) into its NFT marketplace, now supporting six different chains.

Brazilian OKX users can now purchase the Brazilian real after a partnership with Foxbit, a payment and crypto gateway provider.

OKB is the official token of the OKX, rebranded from the OKEx exchange in January 2022. It is the official global utility token issued by the OK Blockchain Foundation. The token allows users to access the special features on OKX.

The utility token is used on OKX to facilitate spot trading, derivatives trading, and the simultaneous development of several scalable applications. In addition, a layered architecture reduces consensus times, improves scalability, and boosts security.

OKB has been doing its parent company proud through this long bearish streak for the market. So how is OKB performing in the market?
