Reported by Cointelegraph, OKX will compensate users who were affected by a flash crash in OKB bitcoin token on Jan.23. Around 9 am GMT on Tuesday, the price of OKB crashed 48% from $46.80 to $25.10 in less than 15 minutes, wiping out $6.5 billion in diluted market capitalization before a swift recovery.
“After touching 48.36 USDT, the liquidation of multiple large leverage positions was triggered successively,” OKX staff wrote. “In addition, the market impact caused the currency price to fall, further triggering the liquidation of pledged loans, leverage transactions, and cross-currency transactions, which ultimately caused the price to drop within a short period of time down to 25.1 $USDT.”
The exchange has pledged to “fully compensate users for additional losses caused by abnormal liquidation,” with a specific compensation plan to be launched.
