This week OKEx announced the listing of the UNI token, which is a governance token for the DeFi protocol Uniswap. Not only did OKEx add support for UNI, but it also is providing users with a range of products and services to help support it and grow the DeFi token, as part of the OKEx commitment to decentralized finance.
To celebrate the listing of Uniswap (UNI), and being the first exchange in the world to offer UNI derivatives, OKEx is offering zero transaction fees in UNIUSD perpetual trading.
In a statement from the CEO of OKEx, Jay Hao said,
"We continue to collaborate with participants in the DeFi space to grow this industry together. CEX or DEX, CeFi or DeFi is not a simple single-choice question. The goal of blockchain and DeFi has never been to replace CeFi, but to use its own characteristics of trustlessness, low friction and low costs to make up for the deficiencies of the existing financial system."
The Uniswap (UNI) token went live this week. All UNI trading pairs will have zero trading fees, so the Taker and Maker fees will be (0,0) for regular and professional users. The trading volume of these zero trading fee pairs will not be calculated in your level of trading volume. We will announce the end of the zero trading fee period in another announcement sometime in the future.
