Here’s what we know so far
Its new product will cater particularly to users that are not fully satisfied with the traditional credit institutions. According to Gracy Chen – the Managing Director of Bitget:
Users now have the opportunity to stake less-demanded coins, enabling them to obtain loans in more liquid assets for investment purposes.
Each loan, as per the press release, will be coupled with a specific interest rate. Bitget did not, however, reveal the cryptocurrencies that’ll be eligible for Crypto Loans.
