Bitget Announces Gracy Chen As Its Latest CEO

In a new development, the twelfth largest crypto exchange by trading volume, Bitget has unveiled former Television (TV) host Gracy Chen as its new Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Chen will be taking over from Sandra Lou, who served as the trading platform’s CEO right from its onset in 2018.

“Bitget, the leading cryptocurrency exchange and Web 3 company, today announces the appointment of Gracy Chen as its new Chief Executive Officer (CEO), effective in May 2024, succeeding Sandra Lou, who will be leaving the platform to pursue her business goals,”

Bitget announced via a blog post, breaking the news to its users.


Chen’s Evolution As A TV Presenter To Bitget’s MD And Now CEO

Before becoming a member of Bitget’s executive department, Chen has been a TV host since 2014, where her exposure journey into the world of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology began via interviews with big names in the crypto space, including American billionaire investor Tim Draper.

Her early familiarity with the digital assets realm led her to invest in several crypto start-up projects, including Bitget, resulting in her enrollment into the crypto exchange board of executives as the first Managing Director (MD) in June 2022.

Upon assumption of her duties as Bitget’s MD, Chen was reportedly exceptional in discharging her roles, especially as the trading platform sought means for expansion.

Intriguingly, she spearheaded the crypto exchange’s movement that significantly increased its user base via partnerships with prominent football star Lionel Messi and other forms of collaboration that yielded positive results, positioning Bitget among the most popular crypto exchanges globally.

In her first letter as Bitget’s CEO, Chen stated, “I’m extremely honored to step into Bitget’s CEO role. Over the past six years, with the robust foundation we’ve built and an incredible team by my side, Bitget has transformed into a leading crypto platform. By consistently innovating in product offerings and creating value for our 25 million users, Bitget has risen to become a top 5 futures trading platform and a top 10 spot trading platform. I’m thrilled to continue to be part of shaping this industry that is on the edge of innovation, empowering the future of digital finance. It’s a privilege to lead such a dynamic group, and I can’t wait to steer our global expansion to new heights!”

Bitget Tagged One Of The Best Performing Exchanges in 2023

In one of our old news articles dated January 25, 2024, we revealed that Bitget was named the frontrunner among digital assets exchanges by renowned cryptocurrency analysis platform TradingView, citing the exchange’s impressive all-around advancements over the previous year.

The above recognition by TradingView underscores Bitget’s desire for massive expansion despite existing for barely five years. The trading platform’s remarkable achievements in 2023 included improved user expansion, a sound regulatory compliance history, and a tremendous surge in trading volumes.

According to the report, Bitget recorded an overall trading volume of $3.14 trillion, with spot trading volume experiencing a 94 percent surge to $81.6 billion. With Chen’s appointment as the trading platform’s new CEO, chances are high that the exchange will assume even greater heights this year.
