Here’s a detailed interview:
What do you look most forward to at TOKEN2049?
Attending TOKEN2049 is all about connecting with the community. I am certain this event will be one of the most vibrant congregations of our community to date. When we talk about market trends, 2023 has been very interesting – Bitcoin price fluctuations, evolving regulation, and Bitcoin ETFs. Despite all this, the industry is actively advancing forward.
Through TOKEN2049, we are hearing from traders what they want in this environment, and it is quite fortunate to be able to take that back to our product and platform team as well.
What sets BitMEX apart from other exchanges?
BitMEX is one of the leading crypto exchanges in the world. The platform aims to promote a safer trading experience for users by employing the latest multi-factor security. HOBD Belghali shares the main points that make BitMEX different from others:
- Total proof of reserves
- BitMEX Token
- Our derivatives contracts
- Latency and limits
- Transparent fees
- Asset security and custody
- Profit and loss realization
- Rewards for market makers
- Generous credit lines
- Our insurance fund
- VIP programme
What message would like to give to Web3 enthusiasts in the space?
BitMEX has remained steadfast and productive, consistently enhancing our platform with new products and features. In a bear market, it pays to dig deep and finesse for the future.
Since renewing our focus on crypto derivatives, we have witnessed significant interest and remarkable performance in our new futures contracts and perpetual contract listings.
Our ability to withstand multiple market cycles as a business has given us unique insights, enabling us to identify and create opportunities in the crypto markets for our traders.
You are the founder of Women in Web3 Switzerland, and recently, Miss Bitcoin Japan joined your prestigious organization. What would you say to other women who would like to join you?
If you are looking for a place to network, learn, and grow, then Women in Web3 Switzerland is the place to be. Our aim is to empower individuals through the collective strength of the group, and vice versa.
We champion diversity within the Web3 arena. We consist of a community of experts, lending our voices to bring fresh perspectives into the Web3 landscape. Our mission is to attract talented women to this space, advocate for increased female representation on prominent stages, enhance the visibility of women professionals, cultivate role models, and collaborate with organizations that recognize the value of diversity and inclusion in building successful businesses.
Furthermore, we have an ambitious vision of involving women from disadvantaged geographiesin the Web3 revolution. Our aim is to provide them with scholarships, grants, and resources to empower their entry into the Web3 industry. This approach yields a threefold advantage:
- We are integrating them into a vital industry, both for the present and the future, thereby enhancing their economic prospects as well as those of their local communities.
- By creating a pool of female Web3 developers, we are addressing a significant gap in the Web3 sector where female talent is currently underrepresented and in high demand.
- In a spirit akin to the Max Havelaar fair trademark, these women can anticipate fair incomes, while Web3 companies benefit from cost-effective means to develop their businesses.
