What is OKB?
OKEx, the 2nd most popular cryptocurrency exchange by trading volume, launched its platform token ‘OKB‘ today with 10 trading pairs. On its official support page, OKEx describes OKB is a global utility token issued by the OK Blockchain Foundation. The total available supply of OKB will be one billion tokens (1,000,000,000), with a distribution model that allocates 60% of the supply will be given out to OKEx customers for community building and during marketing campaigns. According to OKEx, the company had officially issued OKB on ERC20 protocol earlier this month.
Who created OKB?
In March 2018, some major cryptocurrency exchanges were said to be charging up to one million dollars to have their tokens listed. In a response to Insider, a PR manager for OKEx denied this saying there is no listing fees for any tokens.
On July 30, 2018 a trader reportedly bought bitcoin futures with a $416 million notional value on margin, before being forced by the exchange to liquidate his position at a large loss. The exchange injected 2,500 Bitcoins - worth about $18 million at current prices - into an insurance fund to help minimize the impact on clients. However, to cover for the outstanding amount, traders who had made an unrealized profit during the previous week still had to pay a clawback rate of 17 percent, so-called "socialized clawback".
On October 16, 2020 OKEx temporarily suspended withdrawals following its founders alleged arrest. On November 19, 2020 OKEx announced that withdrawals would reopen and will resume on or before November 27.
What is the purpose of OKB (OBK)?
OKB uses efficient pools rather than serving as market maker, also in contrast to centralized exchanges, with an aim to create more efficient markets. Users provide liquidity to the exchange by adding a pair of tokens to a smart contract which can be bought and sold by other users. In return, liquidity providers are given a percentage of the trading fees earned for that trading pair. For each trade a certain number of tokens are removed from the pool for an amount of the other token, thereby changing the price.
