Given their utility and growing list of use cases, cryptocurrencies are gaining popularity and one way to buy cryptocurrency is to use a reliable crypto exchange like OKX. On OKX, users can sign up, verify their identities and start buying Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies instantly using credit cards, debit cards, bank transfers and other supported payment methods.

Typically, when you buy cryptocurrency, you have to store it in a dedicated wallet, but the security of your digital assets depends on how safely your private key is kept. Every cryptocurrency wallet has a private key which allows complete access to the stored digital assets. If you lose your private key, you effectively lose your funds.

Using an exchange like OKX also facilitates users because their newly purchased or traded digital assets are kept securely on the platform and are credited into users' accounts, available to be sold or transferred as required.

Ultimately, users should always buy cryptocurrency from a reliable exchange, and if they withdraw their digital assets to a personal wallet, they should keep their private keys safe and backed up to ensure the security of their funds.


In January 2022, OKEx rebranded to OKX.
According to Reuters, in February 2021 OKX saw their biggest trading volume in history, up 26% from the previous month to $188 billion. Typically after a new cryptocurrency coin listing on OKX, the new coin has showed a positive price jump five days later.

In November 2019, new digital asset exchange rules were announced by the Hong Kong Securities & Futures Commission (SFC). According to Reuters, OKX said that they don't expect to see a large number of exchanges opting into the new regulations but said the new rules are positive for the industry.

On November 19, 2019 the cryptocurrency exchange said that they previously opened their Indian Telegram group a year prior to opening their Indian operations.

On November 25, 2019, the company announced four major partners for its global utility token "OKB".

On April 11, 2018 the company announced its expansion to Malta, given the country's efforts to provide a sound regulatory framework for blockchain businesses and digital asset exchanges.

In May 2018, the exchange became the world's largest cryptocurrency exchange by reported turnover.

In June 2018, the platform became one of the largest exchanges to launch and offer a cryptocurrency exchange white label service where applicants must have solid industry experience and $2.5 million in their accounts.
