How to buy OKB (OKB) in Canada

Learn how to buy OKB (OKB) in our step-by-step guide.

Where to buy OKB in Canada

It looks like OKB may not be available to purchase on an exchange in Canada.

You can still purchase OKB by using a decentralised exchange (DEX) instead. Decentralised exchanges are web applications that run on blockchains like Ethereum and allow users to trade any asset directly with one another.

Decentralised exchanges (DEX) are unregulated and run using autonomous pieces of code known as smart contracts. To use a DEX you must interact with the blockchain directly, which is not recommended for novice users. Please learn about decentralised exchanges first if you're unfamiliar.

How to purchase OKB using a decentralised exchange.
  1. Find OKB on a decentralised exchange and make sure OKB can be traded for ETH which is the native asset of Ethereum. Popular DEXs include Uniswap, SushiSwap and 1INCH.
  2. Buy ETH to trade for OKB using an exchange like Ndax. You will need to purchase enough ETH to swap for OKB as well as ETH to pay for transaction fees on the Ethereum network (known as gas). You can use a service like Etherscan to get an idea of how much gas fees currently cost.
  3. Transfer the ETH into a web 3.0 wallet like MetaMask to connect to the DEX.
  4. Trade ETH for OKB on the DEX of your choice, following the instructions on screen. Make sure to leave enough ETH in your wallet to pay for gas.
  5. Wait for the transaction to finalise and the OKB tokens will arrive in your wallet.
  6. You may now keep the tokens in your web 3.0 wallet or transfer them somewhere more secure like a hardware wallet.

You can follow the same process when you want to sell your tokens, or come back to this page to see if they can now be traded on an exchange in Canada.

Best OKB wallets to store your OKB

You can keep your OKB on the exchange you purchased it on, or move it to a personal wallet:

  • Some people like to use their own wallets to guarantee total ownership over their assets, or to use them with other applications like DeFi services.

Is OKB a good investment?

Investing in cryptocurrency can be a risky exercise and it's important to do research to make sure you understand the benefits and risks involved. Before buying OKB tokens, here are some of the important factors to consider:
  • Investment purpose. It's important to consider why you want to invest in OKB. Is it a short-term trade or long-term investment? If you're already actively trading cryptocurrencies on the OKEx trading platform, it can also be a way of accessing trading fee discounts of up to 40%.
  • Supply. To reduce supply in an attempt to prop up value, OKB tokens are 'burnt' regularly. The platform also uses 30% of the income from OKX spot trading fees to buy back OKB from the 300 million in circulating supply.
  • Relationship with OKX. OKB tokens are unique in that they are minted by the OK Blockchain Foundation – the same entity that runs the OKX platform. Therefore, any issues with the OKX platform is likely to have an impact on the OKB price movement. For example, Cointelegraph reported when OKX suspended its cryptocurrency withdrawals last year OKB price plunged by 15%. Investors should be mindful of the risk to the OKB price if there are any issues with the OKX trading platform.
