$300M Bitget Protection Fund to Protect User's Assets

Bitget is continuously seeking ways to ensure users have a safe and reliable experience while using the trading platform. As such, Bitget has now self-funded and released a protection fund to safeguard users' assets. Here is what you need to know!

What is the protection fund?

It is Bitget’s mission to inspire the world to embrace cryptocurrencies. With every new innovation being released into the world, it can be a difficult task to fully eliminate risks. With the protection fund, a portion of the risk is transferred from the user to Bitget exchange. Therefore, if something happens to the funds of a user that is not a consequence of their own actions or behavior on the exchange, Bitget commits itself to protect their funds with the Bitget Protection Fund.

While this is a proactive attitude on Bitget's behalf, it can also encourage other exchanges to address concerns of safety, accountability, and security in crypto in the longer term.

What does the fund consist of?

The 300 million USD protection fund is made up of popular cryptocurrencies of high liquidity, such as BTC, USDT, and USDC. The exchange has pledged to secure the value of the fund for the next three years with no withdrawal. If the fund value drops as the price of BTC declines, Bitget will continue to cover the position to ensure that the balance is not less than 300 million USD, at all times. To ensure transparency, all the information about the fund is open to the public and users can view the wallet addresses here.

What is the difference between a Protection fund and an Insurance fund?

These two types of funds are fundamentally different. A protection fund protects users' funds in case something happens to the users’ funds that cannot be controlled by the user itself. The insurance fund is one that is built collectively through market participants and their activity. This fund can help mitigate losses because of other users' trading behaviors.

Bitgets protection fund further fortifies the security of its users. It manages to do this by being transparent and making the wallet addresses publicly available. Secondly, even though Bitget strongly believes in Bitcoin and cryptocurrency overall, the fact that price can fluctuate heavily can not be ignored. By hedging the BTC wallets against a stablecoin, will reduce the volatility of the fund and make it a reliable and balanced fund that can maintain its value even throughout a bear market. Lastly, the Bitget Protection Fund is entirely self-funded, making its operations efficient as it eliminates complicated bureaucratic procedures one would normally have when working with third-party funds.
