Why is Staking Important for OKEx?

According to Yao, staking is one of the easiest ways to generate a yield, and it is also recognized as one of the safest ways to obtain passive earnings on digital currency. Today, it is very difficult to generate yields, which makes staking even more attractive.

“The OKEx pool is an innovative pool that provides users with safe, stable, and transparent multi-currency and multi-type mining services. We encourage users to participate in staking and get a higher yield.”

To stake IOST in OKEx, users must access the IOST staking page of OKEx Pool. Users can stake IOST on OKEx official website or APP.

The Benefits of Staking With OKEx

The exchange is going to roll out product promotion campaigns that aim to increase users’ yield. Earlier this year, OKEx Pool launched the promotion campaign, called “Staking IOST Double Yield”, with a double yield during the promotion period for all IOST staking orders.
