Bitget also launched the Bitget Protection Fund in 2022

In August 2022, Bitget launched a protection fund as a response to the volatility of the cryptocurrency market. The Bitget Protection Fund houses 6,000 Bitcoin and 80 million Tether that were valued at around USD 200 million at the time of launch. Moreover, as the crypto winter showed no signs of letting off in the near future, the company pledged to secure the value of the fund for three years.

The exchange opted to use a mix of stablecoin and BTC in the protection fund to counter the volatility of the crypto market. Bitget also implemented strict Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) policies to disallow bad actors from using its services. 

The fund’s primary goal was to regain and keep investor confidence during a prolonged bear market. By launching this fund, Bitget joined a growing list of crypto companies, including Binance, that leaned on protection funds as a way to gain the trust of investors.
