What is happening with the OKB token?
On Tuesday, the price of OKB, the native token of the OKX crypto exchange, nosedived from above $52 to hit lows of $39. The early morning flash crash pushed the OKB market valuation down by more than $700 million.
While the OKX token has recovered some of the losses, it remains below $50. At the time of writing, it’s trading near $45 and at risk of further declines amid the broader crypto market bleeding.
Regarding the flash crash, OKX CEO Star Xu said in an earlier post on X that the exchange was investigating the crash. He has promised to give an update to the crypto community.
