In line with a recent ‘press-release‘ published, renowned cryptocurrency exchange ‘Bitfinex’ is listing two tokens from the OKEx exchange: its native utility token ‘OKB’ along with the stablecoin ‘USDK’.
The native utility token OKB is drafted to let OKEx users perform several of functions on the exchange, as well as settlement of trading fees, the ability to form a partner exchange, and subscription for tokens on OK Jumpstart – one among the OKEx’s token ‘sale‘ platforms.
Andy Cheung – Head of Operations at OKEx commented within an official Twitter ‘post‘ that OKEx plans to partner with additional exchanges within the mere future:
“… Listing $OKB on @Bitfinex is barely the very first step, we will continue to work with other exchanges to expand our systems.”
OKB is presently an ERC-20 that run on the Ethereum [ETH] blockchain, but would transition to the OKChain later this year, in line with the release.
Earlier this month, OKLink, an international settlement firm and sister company to OKEx, ‘partnered‘ with the custodian Prime Trust to launch USDK on OKEx.
Also, around 185 hacked Bitcoins [BTC] held on Bitfinex has apparently changed their addresses over the course of six transactions. The Bitcoins [BTC] are ‘reportedly‘ associated to a ‘hack‘ that occurred on the exchange earlier in 2016. Anneka Dew – Bitfinex’s marketing director added that the exchange isn’t behind the migrating account funds.
