In the coming quarter, Bitget plans to introduce an additional token, BWB, as the native coin of its Web3 wallet, with an ongoing airdrop to mark the event.

Market Dominance and Initiatives

According to research from CCData, Bitget’s derivatives market share witnessed significant growth, with a dominance of 12.8% in March, the highest among all centralized exchanges analyzed.

The exchange’s commitment to supporting women-led startups in the Web3 and blockchain industry was also highlighted, with Bitget pledging $10 million for this cause earlier in January.

Bitget’s impressive performance in Q1 2024 underscores its position as a key player in the cryptocurrency trading landscape, with ambitious plans for further expansion and innovation in the coming quarters.
