OKX taps DappRadar to gain access to global app store for dApps

Rick Steves

“We’re excited to be working with DappRadar in broadening our customers’ DApp discovery and making app store and wallet interactions seamless.”

OKX has partnered with DappRadar to offer its users new ways to connect, discover, and interact with Web3 through the global app store for decentralized applications (DApps).

The world’s second largest cryptocurrency exchange by trading volume has integrated DappRadar’s API into its platform, broadening the DeFi and GameFi applications that are discoverable with OKX’s DApp discovery tool.

Moreover, the OKX Web3 Wallet is now available on DappRadar as a default connection option, enabling users to seamlessly access their web3 portfolios while shopping for DApps.

Broadening OKX customers’ DApp discovery

Haider Rafique, Global Chief Marketing Officer, OKX, said: “OKX is committed to giving our users the best web3 experience, and making DApps more accessible underscores this. We’re excited to be working with DappRadar in broadening our customers’ DApp discovery and making app store and wallet interactions seamless.”

This integration marks the first step in the strategic partnership between OKX and DappRadar, with the companies planning to continue collaboration in driving adoption of web3 technology.

As a top partner of English Premier League champions Manchester City FC, McLaren Formula 1, golfer Ian Poulter, olympian Scotty James, and F1 driver Daniel Ricciardo, OKX aims to supercharge the fan experience with new financial and engagement opportunities. OKX is also a presenting partner of the Tribeca Festival as part of an initiative to bring more creators into web3.

OKX partnered with TradingView

Earlier this year, OKX partnered with TradingView in a milestone move for the cryptocurrency exchange. Under the partnership, TradingView’s users can now execute trades on OKX directly through the platform and are provided with 640 more spot trading pairs and over 100 crypto derivatives.

While OKX already caters to clients across 180 countries, the crypto exchange recently received a provisional virtual assets license to operate in Dubai. The Seychelles-based cryptocurrency exchange has obtained the approval from Dubai’s Virtual Assets Regulatory Authority (VARA).

In August, OKX launched Block Trading so that professionals and institutionals can execute large, privately negotiated transactions off the order books. The offering includes crypto spot, futures, options, and perpetual swap trades, as well as multi-leg combination trades, over the counter. OKX has plans to eventually expand Block Trading to offer bespoke strategies, further OTC products and integrations with DeFi derivatives protocols.
