A boost to the OKC ecosystem
A press release the company published on Tuesday noted that Liquid Staking will ensure better liquidity and offer OKC users an effective and flexible way to utilize the native token OKT. The feature will also give users a chance to earn impressive staking rewards on the token as they deploy it across multiple protocols.
Liquid Staking will also boost the OKC Chain’s total value locked, or TVL as the network expands its capabilities.
OKC users now have a chance to stake OKT and earn staking rewards of up to 40% APR, with other benefits including the ability to swap staked OKT (stOKT) on the OKX DEX.
