With BRC-30, OKX Wallet users will soon be able to stake BRC-20 tokens and Bitcoin to earn passive income on their digital assets.
OKX, a leading Web 3.0 company, today introduced its proposal for a new open-source BRC-30 protocol that enables staking of BRC-20 tokens and Bitcoin in order to earn BRC-30 tokens.
The protocol is open-source and available for all developers to build upon.
OKX Wallet will add support for the BRC-30 standard according to the protocol, enabling users to earn passive income by staking BRC-20 tokens or Bitcoin on Web 3.0 Earn without actively trading.
This complements the existing range of curated DeFi earning products already available through the platform.
The introduction of BRC-30 and its staking functionalities is driven by OKX’s goal to provide users with additional opportunities to participate in the Bitcoin ecosystem and earn passive income.
Jason Lau, chief innovation officer at OKX, said,
“We’re thrilled to have proposed and pioneered the BRC-30 standard to enable Bitcoin and BRC-20 token staking. With the OKX Wallet soon to incorporate BRC-30 support, users will be able to access Bitcoin staking and earn opportunities across multiple chains.
“With the Bitcoin ecosystem seeing an explosion of new development, we’re proud to work with developers and projects across the community to contribute to the growth of the wider ecosystem.”
OKX is a longstanding supporter of Bitcoin, having integrated the Lightning Network to its centralized exchange over two years ago.
OKX Wallet is also the first multi-chain wallet to support BRC-20 trading with the launch of its Ordinals Marketplace, as well as the viewing and transfer of Bitcoin Ordinals.
