Bitget and $10M investment to expand the crypto-exchange

Global cryptocurrency-focused venture capital firm Dragonfly has announced its $10 million strategic investment in Bitget’s crypto-exchange.

This is Dragonfly’s support for the expansion of Bitget‘s global market and range of service offerings.

Not only that, the investment will support the global crypto derivatives and copy trading platform in its upcoming CSR initiatives aimed at increasing cryptocurrency education and adoption.

In this regard, Gracy Chen, CEO of Bitget, commented as follows:

“Dragonfly is a highly respected investor in the crypto industry, and we are honored to have them on board. As the fastest-growing exchange in the past 12 months, this investment is a recognition of our focus on BUIDL in the bear run. 

Except for the cash inflow, what will benefit us more from the Dragonfly partnership is their crypto savvy and insights. Together, we will be able to discover more growth opportunities and contribute more to the sustainable growth of our industry.”
