Seychelles, July 22, 2021 OKX (, a comprehensive, world-leading cryptocurrency exchange, is pleased to announce the listing of KAR, the native utility token of Karura. KAR deposits are open now and withdrawals will open at 10:00 am UTC on July 22. Users can also trade KAR/USDT on the spot market now.

Karura is a one-stop DeFi platform that has multiple features, such as cryptocurrency swaps, borrowing, lending, earning and more — all with micro gas fees. Karura won the first auction on Kusama, the Polkadot enabled ​​parachain, which is also known as a canary network.

OKX CEO Jay Hao commented: 

“We are extremely happy to bring Karura to our users. We see similarities in our platforms, as we both prioritize user experience. What could be better than being able to do everything in one place? OKX is one of the first crypto exchanges to provide both spot and derivative trading in one place. Similarly, Karura’s comprehensive platform allows users to swap, borrow, lend, earn, etc. Only by sharing the same vision can we create a better ecosystem, together.”

To celebrate the launch, all of the Karura supporters during the launch of OKX’s early bird voting for the Kusama parachain slot auctions will get a piece of a limited-edition OKX–Karura NFT. Learn more here.
