BANGALORE, India, Sept. 5, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Bitget, one of the leading derivatives exchanges, has surpassed FTX and top exchanges including KuCoin, Crypto.com, Huobi Global and more in derivatives trading volume as per data provided on CoinGecko.
As the overall crypto market continues to face volatility and negative tailwinds, Bitget has moved inversely projecting 500% + growth in trading volumes. Maintaining a tremendous growth record to generate strong and recurring cash flow despite uncertain market conditions.

The report states Bitget’s derivatives trading volume has exceeded that of FTX, ranking third globally.
