Bitget Monthly Report of February 2024

Introduction

In February 2024, the cryptocurrency market experienced a significant uptick in momentum, characterized by notable achievements and increased optimism among investors. The total open interest in Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) reached new highs, indicating a strong and expanding market engagement.

This bullish trend was amplified by the excitement in the AI sector, especially as cryptocurrencies related to this field saw significant increases.
