Based in Singapore, it offers spot, forward, perpetual, options and savings contracts. The company founded by Jihan Wu and mining rig maker Bitmain in 2019 recently said it was doubling its workforce despite large-scale layoffs seen elsewhere in the industry to take advantage of available talent.

Zhang, who will speak at the European Blockchain Convention 2022 this week on the transition from Web2 to Web3, said the market correction will cause a number of companies to fall.

“The cryptocurrency market is at a turning point. Businesses will either pivot and successfully weather the storm or suffer the consequences,” she said.

“The future format of cryptographic services will be a combination of Web2 and Web3. Exchanges should prioritize an aggregate service approach focused on the customer and the chain; those who still bet on excessive leverage will not make it through the crypto winter.

Traditional and digital financial markets are in turmoil, with ongoing conflict in Ukraine and significant market uncertainty. The chaos erased over $2 trillion in value from the crypto market, with several institutions going bankrupt and retail investors losing their life savings.

With skepticism at an all-time high, the general public lacks trust in those they see as the responsible stewards of their assets. As a result, many companies are taking this time to focus on finding ways to maintain trust with their investors.

“In order to stand out, exchanges like ours will need to provide real value to consumers with services and tools built with cutting-edge simplicity,” added Leslie Hsu, director of business development at Bit.com.
