Cosmostation and OKExChain Announce Strategic Partership

Mar 23 · 4 min read

We are pleased to announce a global strategic partnership with OKExChain, an EVM-compatible public network and decentralized exchange built by OKEx.

Cosmostation and OKEXChain have entered into a strategic partnership to secure its public network that powers the OKEx decentralized exchange. Cosmostation will participate in the OKExChain ecosystem as a validator node operator and end-user application provider.

OKExChain is the world’s first trading chain — blockchain technology built for trading. It is the next step in the development of decentralized trading, where people can trade anything of value on-chain, and own and control the assets that they trade. OKExChain provides safe and efficient infrastructure for creating decentralized applications for seamless on-chain trading of all kinds of assets within a cross-chain, value-exchange ecosystem.

OKExChain is developed utilizing the building blocks of Tendermint and the Cosmos SDK. As one of the first enterprise-level validator node operators and end-user application developers that have been actively contributing to the Cosmos SDK ecosystem since its inception, we believe that our knowledge and experience in operating a secure validator node and working on product integration will create a great synergy between Cosmostation and OKExChain.

About OKExChain

EVM compatible public PoS network built by OKEx.

OKExChain allows users to trade assets on-chain while providing a completely non-custodial experience. Its open infrastructure provides a safe and efficient means of creating decentralized applications, with a strong focus on supporting utilities around creating powerful decentralized finance applications. OKExChain’s low operational costs and transaction fees open opportunities for developers and users to efficiently experience the power of decentralized applications in an optimal environment.

OKT is the native token powering OKExChain. OKT provides users with immediate utility and benefits, from voting rights and staking privileges to transaction fee payment for decentralized exchanges and other DeFi applications built on the network.

Cosmostation is more than a OKExChain Validator

Cosmostation is an enterprise-level validator infrastructure provider and end-user application developer for various PoS networks, with a strong focus on networks built with the Cosmos SDK and Tendermint Engine.

We believe that providing secure and user-friendly tools for the ecosystem is just as important as operating a stable and secure validator node. End-user applications with good UI/UX improves the overall accessibility of the network as well as its appeal to the general masses.

Through this partnership, Cosmostation will be supporting OKExChain on Cosmostation Mobile/Web and Mintscan Block Explorer.
