Most of the crypto community members know about BiKi, and some of us have even used it ourselves. However, just to ensure that those who are unaware of your platform, can you please briefly introduce Biki to our readers?

Now, can you also tell us how Biki stands apart from other crypto exchange and trading platforms?

BiKi is one of the very few trading platforms that has survived since its establishment in 2018 and has grown in scale. We are quite focused on product diversity, including providing spot, derivatives, investment, staking, DeFi, etc., with each to the mainstream level.
Also, BiKi has been deeply involved in the Japanese, Korean and South-East Asian markets with certain number of users, and its development in those regions has also become an integral part of the platform’s strength.

We see that Biki also has few DeFi features built into the platform, like the Fast Loan, Biki Staking and more. Please tell us more about them.

BiKi is an early platform to engage DeFi field. After the second DeFi explosion in 2020, more than 50 popular DeFi projects such as COMP, YFI, UNI, SUSHI, etc. were listed and supported with grid trading, and liquidity mining. At the same time, the platform is also the first to support the DeFi part of TRON.
As for the BiKi Staking, it was launched in 2019 and has been officially upgraded to the “Staking Pro” as the first phase of the mining pool financial management project and now is available on the official website.

What is the size of Biki’s present user base? Can you shed some light on the YoY growth experienced by the platform?

Currently there are more than 3 million users on the platform, with majority from our community. BiKi has always attached importance to building community consensus, giving users more platform rights. As the platform develops, there are more and more community alliances and users are helping the platform.

Bitcoin and Ethereum have performed beyond expectation in the recent months, renewing interest in cryptocurrencies among many. How has this benefited your platform? Did the rise in BTC and ETH prices to their all-time highs pose any challenges?

BiKi’s development in both spot and futures trading has matured. With other businesses, like leveraged, ETF or staking, they can help users capture market trends and generate value to make a win-win situation possible. The market changes all the time, which has also accelerated the development of the whole industry, and the trends will be a major challenge to the platform if they can create opportunities.
