Futures Bitget: how to get rich now thanks to The Merge?

For those who don’t know her yet, Bitget is a centralized exchange platform, a rising figure in the crypto ecosystem. Despite the ambient bear market, the exchange continues to innovate and accelerate its expansion. While others are laying off staff, Bitget is recruiting and riding a wave of buoyant and disruptive financial products. Still in the news, it is very logical that the platform invites you to capitalize on “The Merge” of Ethereum. To do this, it makes available one of its specialties, the trading of term contracts called “futures”.

Le Journal du Coin offers you this promotional article in collaboration with Bitget.

Introducing Bitget

Better trading, Better life “. This is the slogan of this Singapore-based platform launched in 2018. Specialized in derivatives trading, Bitget has seen exceptional growth. So much so that it is now in the top 10 worldwide in terms of daily volume of transactions (see CoinMarketCap). From 150 in 2019, the exchange should pass the bar of 1000 employees, spread over more than 20 countries during 2022.

Convinced of the need for a secure and irreproachable offer, compliance is one of its priorities. Already regulated by most financial authorities, the company is entitled to operate almost worldwide. In addition, it stubbornly takes the appropriate steps to obtain the few rare authorizations that it still lacks.

Innovative strength, Bitget was, for example, the first platform to offer “futures” collateralized in volatile cryptocurrencies (and not in stablecoins). The quality of its platform and its reduced trading costs have enabled it to attract more than 2 million users worldwide.

In terms of communication, numerous partnerships and sponsorships (Juventus, Galatasaray, etc.) largely contribute to supporting and improving the group’s image. A strategy of respectability and visibility which has already borne fruit.

Bitget, The Merge and its potential future(s)

The Ethereum blockchain has therefore just moved from a proof-of-work consensus mechanism (Proof of Work = PoW) to a consensus mechanism by proof of stake (Proof of Stake = PoS). Far from only concerning Ethereum, this event called “The Merge” is already considered as one of the most impactful crypto ecosystem-wide events whole.

This transition took place successfully on the morning of September 15, 2022. A historic update that was long overdue, and which the market had therefore been able to anticipate for a long time. Thus, for the first time in August 2022, ETH futures trading volume had supplanted that of BTC !

In effect the impacts related to this update are far from negligible (ecological, change of economic model, upheaval for the major players in the ecosystem, etc.). Also, investors have long speculated on the repercussions that a successful (or failed) evolution would have on the price of the token. This thanks to “futures”!

However, if the update was successful, many remain convinced that its impact is not yet definitely priced. Two schools clash. Some anticipate flipping, with an ether that would overtake bitcoin in terms of total market capitalization. Others, however, put their finger on centralization problems related to the very nature of the famous “Proof of Stake” (PoS).

One thing is sure : the price of Ether has not finished evolving !

Whatever your point of view on the question, BitGet offers you a range of financial products tailored to make the most of the consequences of this event on the market.

Futures on Bitget

The specifics of the exchange

Bitget has therefore made a specialty of these futures (known as “futures contracts”) in their “perpetual” version. These products are well known to traditional finance. They allow two parties to buy (or sell) an asset at a price fixed in advance. All the documentation on this offer is available here.

Unlike classic futures contracts, perpetual contracts have no expiration date, and the market is incredibly liquid. Indeed, trading perpetual futures is attractive because it does not require constant monitoring of the spot market.

The platform thus offers you 2 options concerning the collateral used to maintain your positions open, stable or volatile:

  • Stablecoins: USDT, USDC

If you choose ” crossed » all of your cryptos on bitget will serve as collateral in the event of a trend reversal. A situation that is not uncommon in a current context of rapid and brutal movements. At the writing of these lines, it seems to us that an example of SHORT, to take advantage of the downward movement, would perhaps have been more judicious. Will this observation still be relevant when it is published? Nothing is less sure …

If you want to apply leverage, fully aware of the risks this represents, you can select it at the top right (4). For our example, the leverage selected is x5.
