BGB Token and Upcoming BWB Token

Bitget's native token, BGB, reached an all-time high of $1.38, with a year-over-year gain of over 400%. The exchange, currently valued at $2.6 billion based on its BGB market cap, plans to roll out an additional BWB token as the native coin of its Web3 wallet in Q2, with an ongoing airdrop for the event.

Market Share and Open Interest Growth

Research from CCData indicates that Bitget's derivatives market share grew by nearly 2.5% in March, the highest among all centralized exchanges. The exchange's open interest in futures and derivatives grew by 104% in March, with funding rates increasing significantly throughout the month, reflecting positive market sentiment as Bitcoin neared its all-time high.

Support for Women-Led Startups

In January, Bitget pledged $10 million to help kickstart women-led startups in the Web3 and blockchain industry. This initiative aims to elevate blockchain knowledge and open up funding avenues for women, addressing the gap in venture funding for women-led crypto startups, which received less than 7% of overall venture funding.


Bitget's substantial growth in Q1 2024, along with its expanding product offerings and commitment to supporting diversity in the blockchain industry, positions the exchange as a prominent player in the crypto market as it continues to evolve.
