The move signals that OKX is moving towards providing a better user experience on its decentralized services. 

The exchange says the new feature would “provide users with a seamless and secure way to purchase crypto” while “keeping full control over their digital assets.” 

Together with the news on its wallet, OKX also announced more trading options for customers. On Tuesday, the exchange listed USDC-margined futures for BTC and ETH.

On the Flipside

  • Since the FTX collapse, exchanges have started offering more self-custodial and decentralized solutions.
