The investment will support the crypto derivatives exchange’s market and service expansion across the globe, Dragonfly said in a press release. The funds will also go into Bitget’s CSR initiatives as the platform looks to promote crypto education and adoption.
“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,” Gracy Chen, the Managing Director of Bitget said.
The investment also comes as Bitget looks to double down on its efforts across spot trading, launchpad, and earning products.
