1. From Wallet to Bitget Onchain Layer

1.1 Redefining the Web3 Wallet: From Gateway to Platform

Since its inception as a multi-chain wallet in 2018, Bitget Wallet has evolved into a comprehensive platform featuring native functions such as multi-chain wallet, Swap, intelligent market data, Launchpad, inscriptions tool, and earning center, reflecting its transformation from an asset management tool to a full-stack DeFi ecosystem and platform.
In this journey, Bitget Wallet has attracted over 20 million users globally and has gained widespread recognition. Just last month, the platform achieved a record high in Swap data, with trading and order volumes surpassing MetaMask.
As Bitget Wallet continues to build, several enduring yet unresolved challenges in the Web3 space demand attention. Users face complexities in navigating different blockchains, selecting the right decentralized exchanges, choosing from numerous liquidity pools, and managing fluctuating gas fees. Furthermore, obstacles such as slippage, network congestion, and unexpected MEV attacks are prevalent, contributing to a complex and oftentimes frustrating user experience.

As the forerunning access point and gateway to Web3, Bitget Wallet is committed to empowering seamless user interaction with the Web3 ecosystem. To produce innovative solutions to these problems, it was imperative for us to identify primary user needs. Following in-depth analysis of user behaviours and requirements, we found that user needs reside within four main categories: asset management, asset discovery, onchain trading, and earning. Among these, On-Chain Trading and Earning stand out as the most significant focal points. Bitget Wallet has prioritized its efforts towards enhancing these particular areas to better serve its users.
We started with solving user problems in onchain trading by creating a native swap aggregator: Bitget Swap. Today, Bitget Swap consolidates liquidity from nearly 50 blockchains and hundreds of DEXs to offer users with the most optimized and cost-effective trading paths. Deploying it as a native feature also provided us with the means to introduce value-added features including gas-free transactions and multiple trading modes to enhance the overall trading experience for users. This step laid the foundation for addressing user challenges, but more comprehensive solutions were necessary to keep pace with the ever-evolving Web3 landscape.
Yet this was just the beginning of our quest to fully address user needs. Since then, numerous novel DeFi use cases beyond swaps have emerged in the dynamic Web3 world, prompting wallet projects to open up new gateways and access points for these emerging protocols. Despite this, there still remained glaring pain points and obstacles, including poor user experience and complex interfaces.
To solve these problems and achieve true Web3 mass adoption, Web3 wallets needed to undergo a transformative upgrade to go beyond just simply serving as a gateway, and instead provide an even more integrated platform dedicated to optimizing the overall user journey.
Recognising this, Bitget Wallet will embark on its next evolutionary phase: the creation of the Bitget Onchain Layer.

1.2 Building the Bitget Onchain Layer

Bitget Wallet Roadmap and Tokenomics image 2
On a macro level, the Bitget Onchain Layer serves as an intermediate layer that abstracts away complexities for users to interact with the Web3 world. Powering the Bitget Onchain Layer are Modular Feature DApps (MFDs). These specialized DApps can function both as standalone DApps as well as native features integrated directly into Bitget Wallet. By working with industry developers to create effective and purposeful MFDs, Bitget Wallet aims to meet users' needs in a more efficient manner, while also supporting developers and DApp projects in Web3.
Aside from trading, the Bitget Onchain Layer also aims to provide native accessibility for new narratives, assets, and opportunities across Web3 from Bitget Wallet by introducing an open and collaborative ecosystem strategy to offer comprehensive coverage over a spectrum of financial services.
The Bitget Onchain Layer comprises of three fundamental aspects: User Experience, Liquidity, and Security.

  • (i) Security: Security is a fundamental requirement in the industry, serving as a safeguard against potential threats in Web3. The architecture of the Bitget Onchain Layer establishes a natural protection barrier against potentially dangerous DApps by reducing the need for users to authorize multiple contracts and interact with unfamiliar DApps. This also means that Bitget Onchain Layer can isolate malicious DApps from eroding user assets and prevent various hidden dangers and risks.
  • (ii) Liquidity: The Bitget Onchain Layer aims to become the ultimate liquidity aggregator. Bitget Swap already aggregates spot liquidity from hundreds of DEXs today. In addition to spot liquidity, the Bitget Onchain Layer will also aggregate liquidity in multiple sectors including OTC, Onchain derivatives, and Pre-Market sectors. With the help of Bitget Solver, it will screen the best liquidity channels or permutations for users to achieve intent-based trading. In addition, the Bitget Onchain Layer will also aggregate DeFi earning opportunities, providing users with seamless and effective ways to earn on Bitget Wallet's across staking, asset management, Onchain arbitrage, airdrops and other features.
  • (iii) User Experience: The Bitget Onchain Layer offers a superior mobile-native product experience. "Mobile First" has been Bitget Wallet's guiding principle, as we believe that the large-scale adoption of crypto hinges on mobile infrastructure development. While the Web2 world has since transitioned from a PC-centric service to a mobile-centric one, the Web3 world is still lacking in this aspect. The Bitget Onchain Layer integrates MFDs that will utilize standardized development SDKs and UI kits to promote even more user-friendly and native experiences on mobile.
Implementing the Bitget Onchain Layer involves a thorough and comprehensive consideration of various user needs and industrial demands spanning various sectors in Web3, and is set to redefine how users interact with the Web3 world in terms of functionality, user experience, and security.

1.3 $10 Million BWB Ecosystem Fund and Open Collaboration

To accelerate the development of the Bitget Onchain Layer, Bitget Wallet will be establish a $10 Million BWB Ecosystem Fund. Through the use of this fund, Bitget Wallet will be incubating and investing in various projects and assets aligned with our long-term goals. In its initial phase, the fund will be geared towards accelerating the development of Modular Feature DApps (MFDs) focused on onchain trading.
Currently, Bitget Wallet is expanding into three types of trading products/services: Pre-Market, on-chain derivatives market, and Trading Bot through investment and incubation via the BWB Ecosystem Fund. These services, in the form of MFDs, will further complement Bitget Wallet's existing Swap trading service. Further details will be released soon.

In addition to encouraging the development of MFDs, the BWB Ecosystem Fund will also focus on developing new assets, particularly within the Meme ecosystem. This sector stands out as a key area of interest, boasting remarkable growth and building strong communities across Web3.
To further its efforts in the Meme sector, Bitget Wallet recently launched an experimental Meme coin, $MOEW. Moving forward, Bitget Wallet will tap on $MOEW and its presence in the community to further its exploration and participation in meme culture and tokenomics. Additional endeavours will also be initiated by Bitget Wallet to ramp up its involvement in the greater Meme ecosystem, including the establishment of a Meme Grant, and participating in various Meme-centric online and offline events.
By combining the BWB ecosystem fund with other supporting pillars in the form of branding, user growth, and product R&D, Bitget Wallet aims to nurture the growth of new Onchain trading products and assets with collaborating projects. This holistic support framework will ultimately foster mutual growth for all parties working within the Bitget ecosystem to revolutionize the overall user experience.

1.4 The Decentralized Future of Bitget

Ever since the DeFi summer, the on-chain ecosystem has been thriving, as evidenced by an increasing number of CEXs that have launched their own native Web3 wallets. The increasingly competitive landscape and hyper-growth state of the Web3 sector underscores the significance of building an on-chain layer in the Bitget Ecosystem.
