Bengaluru, May 14, 2024: Pursuing its vision to accelerate the adoption of a decentralized economy CoinDCX brings the Okto Chain out of stealth. This Orchestration Layer, designed as a chain by CoinDCX, aims to simplify blockchain technology for developers looking to integrate web3 rails into their applications. At its core, the Okto chain functions as an orchestration layer, elegantly concealing the intricacies of the complicated and fragmented web3 ecosystem behind a unified interface. Through a unified set of SDKs, Okto is empowering developers to easily integrate complex Web3 functionalities and flows into their applications while offering single-click mobile-native web2-like experiences for their users.

The company also announced that the Okto Chain will be powered by the $OKTO Token. The Token will play a crucial role in ensuring network security and fuelling network growth. 

The Okto chain is coming out of stealth by powering 1Mn+ users through the Okto Wallet App and other 20+ dApps building on it.  Being the first wallet built on the Okto Chain, Okto Wallet provides a truly elevated trading experience with Chain Abstraction built in.

CoinDCX group  also announces  Season 1 of the Okto Wallet points program, rewarding users for their on-chain transactions. All existing self-custody wallets have been dropped bonus Okto points which they can check at Okto’s website. Users trading on other centralised exchanges can earn bonus points by moving their assets to Okto Wallet. A significant 7% of the $OKTO token will be airdropped to early users through the Okto points program.


Talking about CoinDCX’s progress over the last six years, Sumit Gupta, Co-Founder, CoinDCX, said, “At CoinDCX, our vision is to always keep users at the centre of our strategy. We started by simplifying access to crypto for masses. We believed all CeFi platforms would eventually have a DeFi arm. In 2022, we unveiled a strategy for Web3, wherein we committed that we would enable any individual using  a smartphone to take part in this economy and gain value from it. We introduced Okto Wallet which was our first step in this direction.”

Commenting further, Neeraj Khandelwal, Co-Founder of CoinDCX & Okto, said, “Post experiencing the challenges of building a fully chain abstracted Okto wallet,  in Phase 2, we introduced the Okto Web3 SDK, an industry-first embedded wallet enabling any app or internet company to fully harness the potential of Web3, decentralization, and smart contracts. We have already onboarded 1 million users.”

He further stated, “We are now in the process of building an entire Okto Ecosystem and  are proud to bring the Okto Chain out of stealth. In the future, an average web3 user will interact with multiple chains, doing cross-chain token swaps, confirming identity across multiple chains, and transferring NFTs from one application to another across various blockchains. This would result in fragmented liquidity and a disjointed experience for users. To engage the next billion Web3 users, simplifying these interactions by chain abstraction is crucial for enhancing front-end usability. Developing web 3 applications in a fast and composable manner is key to solving this fragmentation in a multichain world. This is precisely the role Okto Chain aims to play.” 

“The Okto Chain will power thousands of applications being built in the web3 space, alongside multiple applications in our ecosystem, such as the companies funded by CoinDCX Ventures. CoinDCX’s vision is to empower individuals worldwide with financial freedom by making Web3 accessible. We are committed to bring blockchain technology to billions, making it accessible to everyone, everywhere,” added Sumit.
