How to earn crypto using OKX Jumpstart Mining

Decentralized finance, or DeFi, arguably proved smart contract technology’s killer application during much of 2020, and many of its concepts now appear beyond strictly blockchain-based financial products. Among them are liquidity mining and yield farming. 

Liquidity mining first gained traction following the rise of Compound. The protocol rewards users who provide the liquidity needed to facilitate its lending and borrowing functions with its native COMP tokens. Annual percentage yields can be particularly high compared to those found in the traditional financial system and even other earning opportunities in crypto. 

To further bolster the DeFi ecosystem and provide users with more innovative offerings, OKX is pleased to provide liquidity mining as a feature of its token sale platform, OKX Jumpstart.
