Bitget and the Cryptocurrency Market
Cryptocurrency exchanges have recorded a sharp uptick in competition for the past few years as markets grow. In a bid to retain customers, cryptocurrency exchanges have introduced their tokens to reward loyal customers.
Notably, Bitget is a centralized cryptocurrency exchange established in 2018 and is registered in Singapore. Reportedly, the cryptocurrency exchange currently supports 296 coins and 354 trading pairs.
The most active trading pair is BTC/USDT with a 24h volume of $139,238,751.39. The company has 2 million users in about 50 countries around the world, thereby making it one of the fastest-growing cryptocurrency exchanges.
The digital asset industry is experiencing a high level of liquidation as Bitcoin price trades below $20k. Cryptocurrency exchanges are seeking ways to make a profit in volume despite a recent report that Bitcoin trading volume may be inflated to lure more investors.
Furthermore, there is no easy way of consolidating and verifying the total trading volume reported by all cryptocurrency exchanges. As such, the industry is left to rely on data provided by several websites including Coinmarketcap and Coingecko.
Bitcoin and other digital asset trading have attracted investors seeking to profit from the high volatility. The crypto market can record over 20 percent in trading differences per day, while the traditional stock market cannot click to such a level.
A perfect example is the GameStop saga that saw trading of its stock closed after a short squeeze by retail investors. In the cryptocurrency market, there are minimal regulations regarding the extreme level of accepted volatility. Hence allowing cryptocurrency exchanges to benefit from high-level liquidation.
Bitget intends to keep and attract more customers by helping traders reduce their friction while doing in-app trading, which is facilitated by the BGB token.
