Best 3 Ways to Get OKB: The Native Token of OKX X Layer

Complete Guide to Get $OKB: The Native Token of OKX X Layer

The blockchain industry is flourishing across multiple chains. To explore the unique features of each Layer1 or Layer2, it’s essential to first acquire the native token of that chain to facilitate transactions. This article will use the recently launched X Layer by OKX as an example, providing three ways for you to quickly get $OKB!

(Since the methods in this article involve using OKX, it is recommended for those who have not used OKX before to first register for an account and complete the identity verification process (KYC).)

Best Three Ways to Get OKB

There are three main gateways to acquire $OKB depending on where your assets are as well as your preference:

  1. Through OKX Exchange
    • CeFi, need to KYC
  2. Through OKX Express Buy With Debit/Credit Cards
    • Faster but higher fee
  3. Through XY Finance 
    • DeFi, fast & cheap
    • If you already have assets on other chains, you can simply bridge & swap it to $OKB on X Layer with assets on all supported chains.

Get OKB Through OKX Exchange

$OKB serves as the  token of the OKX ecosystem and as the native token on X Layer. The simplest way to acquire it is through purchasing via the trading pairs available on the OKX exchange. Currently, there are four spot $OKB trading pairs available on OKX.👇👇

After selecting the trading pair, you’ll be directed to the trading interface where the simplest method to purchase is via a market order:

  1. Ensure the current price is acceptable for buying.
  2. Enter the amount you wish to purchase and click “Buy $OKB”.
  3. Check the transaction details and confirm the order.
  4. $OKB will be displayed in your wallet upon completion of the purchase.

Additionally, users can also opt for a limit order to buy at a specified amount. The process is largely similar, requiring only an additional step to enter the acceptable purchase price.

Of course, this method is not exclusive to OKX; any centralized exchange (CEX) that offers $OKB trading pairs can be used to purchase $OKB in a similar manner.

Get OKB With Your Debit/Credit Cards Through OKX Express Buy

If you prefer not to purchase $OKB using other cryptocurrencies, OKX’s Express Buy feature allows you to buy various cryptocurrencies including $OKB with fiat money.

First, users need to select the fiat currency they wish to use for payment. After entering the amount they want to purchase, they simply press “Buy $OKB.”

  2. MoonPay
  3. Banxa
  4. Simplex

After making a selection, users will be directed to the respective payment interface. Following certain verification steps, users can complete their purchase using debit or credit cards.
