OKCoin Earn is DeFi made simply. You can deposit crypto in top DeFi protocols via Earn and start earning yield, minus the hassle and gas fees.
- Stacks: Stacking on Earn is temporarily paused as we make a product update to better align the process with the Stacks protocol. STX deposits on Earn have all been returned to customers. Stay tuned for more information on when the next Stacking cycle will open for deposits. Read our update for more details on why we’re pausing Stacking.
