OKC is a public blockchain initiative developed by OKX that comprises a set of open-source chains that can be used as a platform for decentralized applications, including decentralized exchanges. For more detailed information, check out our guide to OKC

November has been an eventful month for the OKC ecosystem.

First and foremost, the OKC testnet has been upgraded to v0.15.0 and is coordinating with the community to prepare for the testnet upgrade. Cryptocurrencies traded on OKC have seen their decimal places upgraded from 8 to 18, which will help reduce trading fees.

Secondly, the Ethereum Virtual Machine smart contract development has reached 95% completion. The EVM of Ethermint has been integrated into OKC and is currently undergoing internal testing.

Additionally, the OKC liquidity-mining Farm module has completed its functional testing and successfully met the product requirements. The testing included bug recoveries and code audits.

Furthermore, OKC announced ecological partnerships with Waves, Achain and DoraHacks. The OKC ecosystem now has more than 30 partners. Organized by DoraHacks, OKC is participating in its 2020–2021 international hackathon, which started in November.

OKC partners with Waves, Achain and DoraHacks

OKC onboarded Waves, Achain and DoraHacks as new ecological partners in November. The OKC ecosystem now has more than 30 partners.

The partnership with Waves connects OKC to more public blockchains and builds a more robust cross-chain decentralized finance ecosystem. The partnership also enables cross-chain asset transfers and provides developer-friendly tools.

The partnership with Achain facilitates intercommunication between decentralized applications and OKC’s integration into the Achain Galaxy ecosystem.

Finally, OKC is now an official partner of DoraHack’s Global Hackathon 2020–2021, which started in November 2020 and will finish in December 2021. The hackathon gathers top blockchain developers in Beijing, Hangzhou, Silicon Valley, Boston, Denver, Oslo, Cambridge, Berlin and Zurich.
