“OKX Earn will launch flexible staking for SHIB, DOGE, LTC, FIL, and XRP on December 8, 2022, at 03:00 am UTC. Earn high rewards by staking SHIB, DOGE, LTC, FIL, and XRP with just a few clicks,” OKX said in a statement.
OKX Earn’s Gold Rush Bonus Promotion
Notably, OKX Earn is an initiative launched by OKX exchange to allow users to earn rewards on their crypto assets through diverse investment choices, including staking and loans. OKX Earn noted that the recently-launched flexible staking for XRP and SHIB is an upgrade of its Gold Rush Bonus promotion, which commenced in September.
Recall that in September, OKX Earn launched the first phase of its Gold Rush Bonus promotion. Following a Twitter poll and internal review results, the popular exchange launched a 90-day staking exercise for five crypto assets, such as SHIB, XRP, DOGE, FIL, and LTC. Staking for these tokens was done on a first-come, first-serve basis.
However, many users did not support the idea of waiting for 90 days before they could deposit and withdraw their assets. They called on the exchange to introduce flexible staking for digital currencies.
“To meet our users’ needs for more flexible deposit and withdrawal, OKX Earn is taking our Gold Rush Bonus promotion up a notch,” OKX said.
