Bitget has appointed Gracy Chen as Managing Director to lead the crypto exchange’s growth strategies as the platform accelerates its global expansion plan.

The newly added executive is expected to elevate the brand’s voice and presence in the broader crypto ecosystem and make it further flourish under her leadership.

Gracy Chen, who was named a Global Shaper by the World Economic Forum in 2015 and is pursuing an MBA degree at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, will be overseeing Bitget’s growth and expansion of global markets, strategy, execution, business and corporate development.

Exciting time to join a crypto platform

Gracy Chen joins Bitget after having held executive roles at XRSPACE, a VR technology company headquartered in Taipei, where she oversaw and led the marketing and business development functions, as well as government and public relations in the region.

Sandra Lou, Chief Executive Officer of Bitget, said: “We are extremely pleased to have a seasoned professional like Gracy to join us, and look forward to leveraging her expertise in the space to further strengthen our growth strategies across international markets.”

Gracy Chen, Managing Director of Bitget, said: “It is an exciting time to join a crypto platform that is leading the growth in global derivatives trading. I have always been an avid investor in crypto and related ventures. I am elated to be joining an organisation full of driven and intelligent individuals, and to guide Bitget to chart even higher growths as the portal that transcends Web2 and Web3, connecting CeFi and DeFi, resulting in an expansive bridge to the vast web of crypto.”

Bitget was founded in 2018 and serves over two million users in more than 50 countries around the world. Earlier this year, the firm announced its derivatives trading volume reached an all-time high of $8.69 billion, representing a 300% growth when compared to the previous year.

Bitget has recently introduced automated trading bots on its platform via a partnership with CryptoHero, the Singapore-based crypto derivatives exchange announced. CryptoHero provides various trading strategies through a simplified user-interface, while its Bots Marketplace also allows new users to familiarise with automated trading by using proven crypto bots created by experienced traders.

The firm has been very active in sports sponsorships, namely partnerships with leading football teams and esports associations including Juventus, Galatasaray, PGL and Team Spirit.

Bitget has included 171 trading pairs which also facilitated the growth over the last year and continues to drive new users and volumes thanks to its social platform One-Click Copy Trade.

The platform has deployed its Launchpad in conjunction with BitKeep, a top cryptocurrency wallet with more than six million users globally which offers access to promising crypto projects and signifies Bitget’s official expansion into DeFi and the NFT space.
