Bitget's January 2024 Report: Leading Derivative Trading Volume Growth and Second-Year Partnership with Messi

Bitget's January 2024 Report: Leading Derivative Trading Volume Growth and Second-Year Partnership with Messi


The crypto market's optimism surged in early January, driven by expectations for Bitcoin ETF approvals and Bitcoin Halving, pushing the market cap to a one-year peak of $1.8 trillion. Ethereum's 2024 roadmap, focusing on improved scalability, security, and efficiency, also hinted at broad impacts on the crypto sector, reflecting its dynamic and promising nature.

Bitget, meanwhile, has actively pursued growth, leading the derivative trading volume growth among CEXs in January with the highest growth across the market of 28%. It revealed a report on startup funding trends that spotlighted gender disparities. To combat this, Bitget initiated Blockchain4Her with a $10 million fund to enhance gender diversity in blockchain. Additionally, Bitget's second-year partnership with Messi for another year emphasizes its commitment to crypto's mainstream acceptance and industry progress through key partnerships.

Monthly Highlights

Female-Led Startups Receive 6% of Overall Funding

Bitget conducted a two-year study on blockchain startup funding trends, revealing a significant gender-based disparity. The research covered Q1 2022 to Q3 2023, highlighting that female-led startups secured only 6.34% of the $27.85 billion total funding, with a 45.2% decrease in their numbers since early 2022. Despite these challenges, the study notes a slight increase in the share of female-led startups from 8.3% in 2022 to 8.6% by Q3 2023, emphasizing the need for incubators to foster inclusivity. Bitget Managing Director Gracy Chen expressed a commitment to addressing gender bias in the crypto industry and promoting equal opportunities.

Bitget Blockchain4Her Project

Blockchain4Her initiative was launched and committed $10 million to promote gender diversity and inclusivity in the blockchain industry. Unveiled at the Web3 Hub Davos event during the World Economic Forum 2024, the initiative addresses the gender bias revealed in a Bitget study, where female-led blockchain startups gained just a small share of total funding. Blockchain4Her includes incubation programs, pitch competitions, and the Women in Blockchain Summit Awards, aiming to empower female entrepreneurs and recognize achievements. Industry leaders are invited to join as ambassadors, advocating for gender diversity in the blockchain sector.
