  • The handling fee model requires 100,000 OKB to be locked, and the handling fee income distribution method is: 50% belongs to the operation team, 30% belongs to OKEx, and 20% is used for the repurchase of OKB.
  • The platform token model requires 200,000 OKB to be locked, and the exchange can issue platform tokens. 50% of the handling fee belongs to the operation team, 30% to OKEx, 20% for the repurchase of OKB, and 10% of the platform token will be circulated to OKB holders.
  • The “trading is mining” model requires 500,000 OKB to be locked, and the mining strategy is customized, and the custom ratio is used to repurchase OKB.

2.The launch of the world’s first OK Partner exchange – CoinAll

Jiao Wang, the brand director of CoinAll, stated: The new models of “trading is mining” + handling fee + community self-governed listing of tokens will push new limits. CoinAll will release 10 billion platform tokens, and will jointly partner to integrate OKB, of which 500 million will be used for OKB holders, 4.6 billion will be used for platform trading and mining, and 4.9 billion will be locked. The platform handling fee of 80% will be refunded, and 20% of the handling fee will be used to repurchase OKB.

CoinAll will adhere to being an open, transparent, and autonomous platform, giving power to the community and sharing profits with the community, thereby making CoinAll the first brand to be a co-creative community and a self-governed exchange.
