OKX delists multiple trading pairs, maintains position as second-largest crypto exchange

October 24, 2023


In a strategic move to optimize liquidity and uphold stringent listing criteria, global cryptocurrency exchange OKX has delisted several spot trading pairs, including the XRP-OKB pair that had a weekly turnover of 46,589 XRP. This was part of a broader strategy observed by crypto journalist Colin Wu, who noted that despite the delisting of a total of 16 trading pairs, OKX continues to hold its position as the world’s second-largest crypto exchange.

As part of this optimization process, OKX’s native coin, OKB, which offers discounts for holders, remains significant despite the delisting.
