Bitget Swap– Bridging the gap between CEFI and DEFi?


Recommended Posts

One of the core selling points of cryptocurrency is that it promotes decentralisation by eschewing the involvements of central authorities like bank, government and other financial authorities; a paradigm shift from fiat currency that is under the full control of government.

Being digital assets, cryptocurrencies are traded on exchanges with the biggest of them operated as CeFi platforms. For contexts, CeFi (Centralized Finance) are run similarly to banks, adopting a central authority as with banks. This infact defeats the purpose of decentralized function of cryptocurrency.

The few weaknesses of CeFi would go on to inspire the birth of DeFi (Decentralized Finance), with the concept taking a different approach to crypto trading compared to CeFi. DeFi eliminates centralized authority that holds custody over assets. Instead, the individual traders hold full custody over their assets and control their private keys. 

Both concepts might have their strengths, but their weaknesses still exist, it is then no secret that devs are channelling their efforts towards finding the right balance. The recent effort of the Bitget devs to come up with Bitget Swap suggests we could well witness that era or platform where the gap between CeFi x DeFi is bridged successfully with a glance suggesting it integrates the selling points of both concepts.


Do you think the readiness of the CeFi Platform, Bitget to launch Bitget swap–a platform that combines the strengths of CeFi and DeFi is a right step in the direction towards bridging the gap between CeFi x DeFi?

have been using the swap feature on different exchanges, and seeing this exchange has joined in bridging the gap between CeFi and DeFi shows a plausible remark that centralized exchanges are improving. But, one downside with swapping on these exchanges is that users must entrust the security of private keys to third parties and exchanges decide which trading pairs to make available. 

Is there any difference with this Bitget?

I guess that's the new trend. I just updated my Bitget app and saw it was an added feature. Well, I know the "swap" can compare market prices across multiple DEXs to give its users the most optimal price while automatically handling the extra gas fees challenge via its user's existing stablecoin balance. As you said, "The centralized exchanges are improving." So yeah, it will likely make a difference

That's interesting to know. Seems like exchanges are going to a new dimension of bridging easier means of sourcing liquidity from different networks. Is like having a 2in1 platform for your trades

Well, this is a welcome development that shows the readiness of CEFI to seamlessly blend DEFI features.

Its low fees & minimal txn time is one good feat that attracted me to utilize this unique product but will explore it as time goes on.

Having a hybrid between these 2 components of the crypto ecosystem is very crucial to the narratives of crypto transactions moving forward. Binance have done it and now bitget is expanding its horizon here too after recent news of integrating a non-custodial wallet

I may have missed that of Binance cos I was thinking Bitget should be the first among the top 20 exchanges to roll out these feature. I will explore both platform to have a feel of this feature.

Thanks for sharing

    • It's common knowledge that copy trading can yield lucrative returns with the right approach, and Bitget exchange has streamlined the process by offering access to top-tier traders to emulate.
    • The introduction of Altered State Machine (ASM) marks a significant development in the NFT space, introducing novel applications through AI integration. Collaborations with industry leaders like FIFA and Non Fungible Labs highlight the project's potential for success, especially with the forthcoming listing of $ASTO on Bitget exchange.
    • With how fast crypto is evolving, IQ wants to help make sense of it all for people. It's like a crypto Wikipedia with guides and resources explaining everything - NFTs, DeFi, blockchain basics, you name it. But with all the misinformation out there and AI like ChatGPT generating content, how useful are human-run knowledge platforms like IQ for getting reliable crypto info?  Here are some key things about IQ: - There's an IQ token that lets users contribute and vote on content. It's available on Bitget, binance and some dex..You can also stake the token for rewards. - IQ uses Polygon to record edits on the blockchain. This verifies the accuracy of information.  - AI is used in some areas like summarizing articles to simplify learnings. - An ecosystem of Web3 apps is in development, like IQ Code to audit smart contracts.  So what do you think about this community-run model with tokenized incentives? Does IQ strike the right balance between AI automation and human know-how? How important are services like this for cutting through the noise as AI content creation keeps advancing? I'd love to hear thoughts on this folks..
