OKU is the native currency of the upcoming Bitoku blockchain-based storage layer for Solana Programs.

This means OKU pays for storage services.

As a node owner, you are earning your daily dose of OKU – right now just for owning the node and participating in our community, and soon for validating storage transactions in the Bitoku chain.

So now you may ask: “The Bitoku chain isn’t live yet – how can I use my OKU today?

The answer is OkuBin, our minimal storage solution where you can store and retrieve data right now, using your OKU to pay for storage.

Please note that this is just a bare minimal solution, and the data will actually be stored on the Solana chain, and not on the Bitoku chain yet.

However, you can try out the utility of the OKU token right now.
