OKEx Launches DeFi Hub, NFT Marketplace

OKEx, a leading global cryptocurrency spot and derivatives exchange, recently announced the launch of a decentralized digital asset ecosystem, DeFi Hub.
DeFi Hub currently features two core products: NFT Marketplace and DeFi Dashboard. The firm said that DeFi Hub, anyone can trade NFTs directly, with zero fees paid out to OKEx. Users can also use the platform to mint their own NFTs of any kind, using the OEC or Ethereum blockchains.
To use DeFi Hub users will require a connection with OKEx Wallet, a multichain decentralized wallet offered by the exchange as a browser extension. The Hub also offers a way for the users to view and manage their decentralized assets across major blockchain networks and DeFi protocols. In DeFi Dashboard you get both a full portfolio view, as well as a separate view for digital collectibles.
At OKEx-NFT Marketplace newly minted NFTs will be available for sale, and creators will have the flexibility to set their own royalty fees. The royalty fees for creators will then be paid out to them in every subsequent transaction on NFT Marketplace's secondary market. The platform also allows users to import NFTs that have been generated on other supported platforms.
