An Open Letter from Gracy Chen:
“Today, the Bitget community stands at the pinnacle of a remarkable journey — Bitget’s 5th anniversary!
This is a moment of triumph, a testament to the unwavering dedication and indomitable spirit that define BitgGet as a team. As the community raises their glasses to toast half a decade of relentless progress, the Bitget team extends their heartfelt gratitude to every invaluable member of the Bitget family — their esteemed users, dedicated team, and invaluable partners.”
Embracing the 10% Philosophy
Bitget’s journey was born from a unique belief – the belief in being part of the 10% who stand their ground when the tide recedes. This belief has become the cornerstone of the company’s core values and mission. It propels them forward in the blockchain domain, driving them to explore and grow continuously.
In retrospect, 2018 marked the rise of Ethereum and the dawn of a cryptocurrency frenzy. However, as crypto prices plummeted, most speculators fled, leaving only a resilient 10% still holding their ground. It was during this pivotal moment that Bitget emerged. Bitget envisioned a crypto revolution that will reform the way finance works and people invest forever, creating a more equitable future.
The Marathon Runner’s Approach
Unlike those exchanges that rise swiftly only to vanish quickly, Bitget has adopted the marathon runner’s approach. The company has crafted user-friendly, robust tools, empowering individuals to securely, conveniently, and efficiently integrate into the future of finance. Placing the users at the forefront, Bitget concentrates on product innovation, adheres to long-term values, and tirelessly strives for improvement.
Since the latter half of 2021, Bitget has expanded its global operations at breakneck speed, achieving global coverage and serving over 20 million users from 100+ countries and regions.
The company firmly believes that to attain long-term success in the digital asset realm, Bitget must offer diverse services to meet users’ varying needs. Thus, Bitget has adopted a progressive strategy, consistently broadening its business horizons and establishing a comprehensive trading ecosystem. This ecosystem encompasses trading, investment, research, DeFi, media, and more.
Today, the Bitget group is far more than just a cryptocurrency exchange. It has evolved into a robust ecosystem encompassing a diverse range of products, an incubator for innovation, a thriving hub for groundbreaking ideas, a dedicated research institution, and a pioneering force in setting trends. The company no longer merely follows trends; but rather forge them.
Recently, within their ecosystem, BitKeep was officially renamed to Bitget Wallet, with total users surpassing 12 million, ranking first across key metrics in Asia. Foresight News has become the largest and most influential media in the Chinese-speaking world. Foresight Ventures has invested in 77 projects totaling over $60 million USD, including renowned companies like Space and Time, WalletConnect, Sei Network, Gitcoin, and Shardeum.
Foresight X has incubated 12 early-stage projects spanning areas like AI+Web3, Bitcoin ecosystem, and LSDFi. In addition, Bitget continues to support emerging Layer 2 networks, contributing to the sustainable growth of the industry.
A Commitment to The Next Generation
BitgGet’s journey of expansion extends beyond business boundaries. It’s an active endeavor to fulfill their social responsibilities by nurturing young talents. This year, Bitget launched the #Blockchain4Youth global charity campaign to encourage the younger generation to embrace the world of crypto.
The company’sBitgGet’s inaugural “Crypto Experience Day” event on International Youth Day (August 12, 2023) spanned 10 global regions, attracting over 1,000 young participants. Over the next 5 years, Bitget plans to invest $10 million in this program to support young talent and enrich the entire crypto ecosystem.
Look Towards The Stars
In the face of challenging market conditions, Bitget’s confidence in the future of crypto remains unshaken. When others are looking down, there are those that look towards the stars.

No matter the risks, challenges, and uncertainties, Bitget firmly believes that great undertakings are accomplished by pioneers who do not stick to the rules. In every era, there are those that look towards the stars!
