Futures cryptocurrency exchange OKEx has added four major partners for OKB, its global utility token aimed at connecting digital asset projects.
First, OKB will be listed on Ledger’s hardware wallet, which helps both cryptocurrency traders and institutional investors keep their digital assets secure in cold storage. With clients in 165 countries, Ledger has sold 1.5 million of its wallets.
In addition to Ledger, OKB is now listed by Aliniex, Vietnam’s largest OTC exchange, and Bvnex, Vietnam’s top fiat/cryptocurrency exchange. OKB will also be accepted by virtual retailer Cryptomall. These partnerships are part of OKEx’s mission to collaborate with mainstream and localized partners, making the OKB ecosystem more comprehensive for its global user base. OKEx and these partners share a similar mission to deliver professional, transparent, and secure trading tools to investors.
Launched in 2017, Aliniex is an exchange that allows users to buy and sell cryptocurrency with Vietnam’s national currency, the Vietnamese Dong (VND). Through this integration, Aliniex now supports OKB/VND trades and allows customers to use OKB for purchases including file sharing, borrowing cryptocurrencies, and booking cars, hotels, or phone cards.
Cryptomall is a virtual retailer that uses blockchain technology to eliminate fake and fraudulent items from its marketplace. It maintains transaction records on the blockchain—from the manufacturer all the way to the purchaser—allowing customers to shop with peace of mind. Through its Cryptomall integration, OKEx users can purchase more than 1 million products through the virtual retailer with the OKB token.
“Ledger, Aliniex, Bvnex, and Cryptomall all share OKEx’s vision to innovative, industry-leading services to cryptocurrency users globally,” says Andy Cheung, Head of Operations at OKEx. “We are pleased to partner with these companies to expand OKB’s utility, making it easier for traders to participate in the cryptocurrency markets all over the world.”
Headquartered in Malta, OKEx is a leading digital asset exchange offering more than 400 token and futures trading pairs to millions of customers in 150+ countries. OKEx offers the most diverse trading products in the market, ranging from spot trading, fiat-to-token trading, margin trading, and crypto derivatives. The company also helps traders, miners, and institutional investors optimize their investment strategies.
