What to consider when buying OKBInvesting 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 OKEx spot trading fees to buy back OKB from the 300 million in circulating supply.
- Relationship with OKEx. OKB tokens are unique in that they are minted by the OK Blockchain Foundation – the same entity that runs the OKEx platform. Therefore, any issues with the OKEx platform is likely to have an impact on the OKB price movement. For example, Cointelegraph reported when OKEx 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 OKEx trading platform.
