On January 6, 2023, Okcoin launched its new Unified Account and API v5 (they skipped v4 since some of their users consider the number “4” bad luck).
Okcoin is excited to share “this upgraded, more seamless trading experience with a select group of users.”
Over the next few weeks, they’ll roll out these new features “to all users.”
Their new API v5 is a significant upgrade from v3, including:
- Order operation in both REST and WebSocket API
- A unified JSON format for error reporting
- More flexible WebSocket subscription and pushing in regular intervals
- Support of more new products coming in the future
- API v5 will be available to all Unified Account users.
Okcoin will soon be “ending support for API v3 in March 2023, so please make sure to upgrade to API v5.”
As always, Okcoin would love to hear how they can improve your Okcoin Unified Account experience.
In another update, it was noted that Okcoin is allowing users to buy FLR, SD and PNK digital tokens. This offer is for all Okcoin customers “outside of the European Union, United Kingdom, Singapore, and Brunei.”
You may deposit, buy, and sell these crypto tokens via the platform. Withdrawals will be available “on January 25 at 6:00 PM PST.”
Flare (FLR), Stader (SD) and Kleros (PNK) are now available.
The Flare Network is “a Layer-1 blockchain designed to bring smart contracts to Ripple (XRP). FLR is an algorithmic stablecoin, often referred to as a “utility fork,” since it was provided freely to XRP holders on a 1:1 basis.”
The token is used “to pay for transaction fees, to take part in protocol governance, and to secure the network.”
Stader is “a multi-chain liquid staking platform that allows users to stake native crypto assets while maintaining the liquid positions of the staked asset.”
Stader offers liquid staking solutions “for multiple blockchains, including Hedera, Polygon, Fantom, BNB Smart Chain, Terra 2.0, and Near.”
Kleros (PNK) is “a protocol for dispute resolution that uses game theory to incentivize a crowd of jurors to analyze and rule on cases.”
The protocol applies “a set of rules to questions and aims to provide fast and cost-effective judgments for other protocols.”
Kleros has “a suite of services including: the Kleros court (dispute resolution), Proof of Humanity, token registry, oracles, governance, escrow, and translation.”
PNK is used “for stalking and governance.”
