OKB token touched its all-time high amid increasing hype about its future new OKBchain launch planning.
The OKB token was initially launched by the OKX crypto exchange in 2017 via an initial coin offering (ICO), where the exchange successfully raised $100 million in funds. Initially, the OKX exchange released this token on the Ethereum network (ERC-20) but later launched its native blockchain network “OKBchain”. Holding the numbers of OKB tokens on the OKX crypto exchange allows the OKX crypto traders to get discounts on their trading fees.
On 16 Feb 2023, OKX’s founder, Mingxing “Star” Xu, took to Twitter to share the happiness that the OKB token hit an all-time high of $47.2 and also confirmed that backed engineers are working to launch a new blockchain network for this token and that Blockchain network will be independent of old OKBchain network.
If we study the OKB token price graph precisely then we will find that the increment in the price of this token took place more rapidly after the OKX founder’s tweet.
The current OKB token trade price is $52.32 & this trade price is 30% high over the last 7 days of trade price.

Despite all such regulatory pressure, the trade price of the majority of the crypto assets surging rapidly since beginning of this year.
