Yu Zhu : Ok,thanks for hosting!
BitWell aims to provide a wide range of services such as digital asset derivatives trading to global users, jointly promoting the development of the blockchain industry and realizing the free flow of digital asset values.
As we can all see, the blockchain and digital asset industry is now in the fast lane of booming development.
In the past two years, the number of professional institutions and investors has been increasing, and the trading volume of derivatives market is growing exponentially.
The crypto industry, while hot, also needs mainstream derivatives to amplify returns or narrow risks.
Then we can find that the industry lacks a comprehensive and professional derivatives platform with products that can satisfy not only professional investors but also novices and easy to use, and BitWell was born to address this market demand.
BitWell’s team members come from 10+ countries and regions such as Europe, America and Asia Pacific, with core backbone from Morgan Stanley, IBM, Paypal, Tencent and other global famous financial and technology companies;
Many core members have multinational working backgrounds, have worked deeply in the financial trading field on Wall Street, and have rich practical experience in blockchain asset trading.
After 1 year of development, BitWell now has several product lines such as options, perpetual contracts, spot, and savings, etc. BitWell is the first options platform in the world to launch DeFi options, and has the most varieties of options.
It is also a platform with the most comprehensive options product lines, with bull/bear contracts, simple options, and options chain(T-quotes) to meet the needs of users at all levels.
BitWell is the first to launch IMM market making incentive mechanism in the industry and MakerPal product.
Also, BitWell is the fastest and most complete platform for listing BSC quality projects spot trading. BitWell can provide users with one-stop digital asset trading and financial management services.

Antonio |: ok so we move on the 3rd question now. Well, so we now have a preliminary understanding of BitWell. Amanda, you mentioned earlier that BitWell has a very rich product line, so can you give us a detailed introduction?
Yu Zhu : BitWell now has several product lines such as options, perpetual contracts, spot, and savings, etc.
BitWell is the first options platform in the world to launch DeFi options, and has the most varieties of options. It is also the platform with the most comprehensive options product lines, with bull/bear contracts, simple options, and options chain (T-quotes) to meet the needs of users at all levels.
The options portfolio product Bull/Bear Contract is a simpler, shorter-period European-style option. It is perfect for novice users who don’t know much about options but want to get exposure and experience them.
Bull/Bear Contract is the equivalent of a real-time parity option, which is cheap and only requires judging the rise and fall of the market while having the advantage of options which is never liquidated. Even if there are drastic fluctuations in the market, there is a chance to roll over until the expiration of the settlement. Even users who have absolutely no knowledge of options can easily get started with the experience.
Simple Options is the first innovative and simplified options product launched by BitWell, allowing users to simply select the coin and period, choose call or put, then select the strike price and fill in the quantity (conts) to place the order, avoiding the complicated parameters and leverage selection.
Simple Options is suitable for users who have some basic knowledge of options.
Options Chain is a professional version of BitWell’s options trading product for institutional and professional users, with a more concise and intuitive interface, more suitable for the trading habits of professional users with better performance, higher information density, and faster trading.
BitWell spot trading section is now online for BTC, ETH and many other mainstream coins, such as BNB, HT, UNI, MATIC, and many other popular tokens of USDT spot trading pairs. Also, BitWell has opened DeFi, Polka, BSC, NFT and other assets zone, selecting related concepts of high-quality asset tokens online trading.
Speaking of which, I would like to remind you that from August 05 15:00 — August 08 15:00 UTC, we will open the second phase of the deposit voting event, as long as more than 1,000 users deposit Zerogoki (REI) (ERC20, no limit on the amount of deposit) is considered a successful vote, and the first 500 people who participate in the deposit voting will be able to share REI worth 2,000 USDT. After successful voting, the REI will be listed in the BitWell spot trading NFT section and will be available for trading. We welcome your active participation!
Savings is a community-based flexible coin deposit finance product launched by BitWell. Users can participate in savings and choose the corresponding prize pool to deposit corresponding coins to get interests. Users can deposit and redeem anytime without limits, and T+1 settlement and interests proceed.

That’s all~thank you!
Antonio |: Impressive , let the community have a deep look at the answer, they might come up with some questions in the live session later
Yu Zhu : ok
Antonio |: ok so now we are at the end of 1st session, here is the last question for you.
Antonio |: Would you mind introducing the BitWell’s platform token, $WELL ?
Yu Zhu : Never mind~ WELL is BitWell’s platform token, based on Ethereum’s decentralized crypto ERC20 Token and has been connected to the Binance Smartchain.
WELL is also a representative of BitWell’s community rights and interests. The current rights and interests include: discounted platform transaction fees, WELL vault, liquidity mining as a “gold shovel”, priority purchase rights for products, community governance voting rights, and the right to be selected as the community’s founding partner, etc.
The maximum nominal supply of WELL is 2.1 billion, which will never be increased. We hope to encourage effective behavior and reward the community users to get the pass, so as to form a positive incentive for the community; secondly, through various ways to motivate users to participate in it personally, so that users can personally participate in the destruction of WELL through their own behavior, and at the same time form a consensus of price increase. Therefore, we have designed an economic model for WELL with extreme deflation and multi-threaded accelerated destruction.
Up to now, 28.75% of WELL has been destroyed, and the ultimate goal is to destroy up to 21 million (1% of the total).
With the continuous development of the platform’s external cooperation, the application scenarios of WELL will also increase. In the future, users will be able to use WELL directly to make offline payments, purchase NFT artwork, etc. WELL will become the hard currency of the BitWell platform, as well as a bridge connecting the blockchain world of BitWell to the outside world.
Antonio |: Interesting insights
Antonio |: Would you like to send coinmarketcap or coingecko link to our community , they might be interested to follow $WELL?
Antonio |: Thank you, that lead to the end of our 1st Session
SEGMENT 2 — TWITTER SEGMENT
Antonio |: Now we enter to the Second session and which is twitter questions.
Antonio |: are you ready? @Amanda2100
Yu Zhu : yes~
Antonio |: Perfect
Yu Zhu : I am ready
Antonio |: let us begin with the 1st question
Antonio |: 1. From @1CapPR
I was going through your Twitter account and saw the tweet that Bitwell is going to be the next ‘Binance’. That’s a very bold statement. What are the features that are there in Bitwell that gives the world’s biggest exchange a tough competition?
Yu Zhu : In the past 1 year, many traditional financial institutions have been entering the digital asset field, and the institutionalization of the crypto market is gradually becoming a trend. With the continuous influx of traditional institutions, it will certainly bring more demand for risk hedging of digital assets, and for institutions, the use of derivatives for risk hedging will become the immediate need, so this area will gradually become the main track for the development of the industry.
At present, the cryptocurrency derivatives market is still at an early stage of development, and the trading volume accounts for less than half of the whole market. However, we can see that derivatives represented by options have gradually started to become familiar to everyone, and the whole crypto derivatives market will have great imagination in the future.
As a derivatives exchange, BitWell is using options as a breakthrough to enter this market.
As I introduced before, regarding to specialized products as options, BitWell has developed different products for different user groups. Bull/Bear contract, simple options and options chain can meet all users’ understanding and needs for options, so that all users can find the right product for them at BitWell, which is one of the original intentions and advantages of our platform.
In addition to options, BitWell also has perpetual contracts, and you can check out our perpetual trading volume and depth of trading, which are currently no less than the top platforms in the industry.
BitWell has just started. In the future, the platform will launch more derivative products, including but not limited to: volatility contracts, ETF, various index derivatives, insurance, etc. so that users with different risk appetite and capital size can build suitable portfolios according to their needs.
As for Binance, we all know that Binance is the world’s largest exchange with very large users and trading volume, and has huge advantages in spot trading, perpetual contracts, etc.
While BitWell is not aiming to directly compete with or even replace Binance, but rather to become a platform with comprehensive products in the field of digital asset derivatives, similar to Binance, so that users can build different investment portfolios according to their needs and realize investment returns.
Thanks for your question!
Antonio |: and thank you for the answer. I do admit that instead of competing with Binance, BitWell is paving its path into more derivatives exchange.
Antonio |: ok, great, let us hop on to the 2nd question from the Twitter
Antonio |: 2. From @Reashes28
What are the use cases of Well Token? Can it be used to pay fees while of BitWell Exchange? Any other features?
Yu Zhu : WELL’s current rights and benefits include: platform trading fee discount, WELL vault, liquidity mining as ‘gold shovel’, priority purchase right, community governance voting right, community creation partner selection right, etc.
WELL’s fee deduction function is under development and will be available soon.
In addition, BitWell has also started cooperation with many institutions and project parties to continuously enrich the application scenarios of WELL. For example, WELL will soon have access to Visa, PayPal, Master Card and other global payment channels. Also, WELL will be available on Alchemy Pay, fiat and digital currency aggregation payment platform, etc. By then, users will be able to use WELL directly to make offline payments in over 65 countries and regions around the world.
Antonio |: Amazing features
Antonio |: So the 3rd question is
Antonio |: 3. From @CryptoSwager7
Trading derivatives can be very risky even for professional traders. Would like to know, the risk management features currently available @BitwellGlobal and how it has helped traders in minimizing loss?
Yu Zhu : 1. At the system level, we have a group of very professional and experienced R&D teams to ensure high concurrency and reliability of the system.
2. At the governance level, we draw on the experience of traditional finance to develop strict internal governance codes to avoid insider trading and other irregularities.
3. At the product design level, we design derivatives specifically for inexperienced users on the one hand, and limit the leverage of products for junior users on the other hand, thus reducing the investment risk of users
4. We also actively promote investor education to help them better understand derivatives and make more rational investment decisions.
Antonio |: ok
Antonio |: 4. From @hiphip69005539
AMM is being used by many projects because of its convenience and safety. So does Bitwell plan to launch AMM in the future?
Antonio |: here is the 4th question for you
Yu Zhu : The AMM mechanism is really good, but the impermanent losses involved are a big headache for users. Many users have feedback to us that while receiving dividends, mainstream coins such as ETH that should belong to them are forced to be exchanged for extremely risky cryptocurrencies, and many times the loss is not worth the gain.
Therefore, BitWell team was inspired by AMM’s commission bonus model, combined it with the traditional order book trading model, innovated a new mechanism IMM universal market making incentive mechanism, and launched the MakerPal product based on IMM.
Here I’ll give you another summary of the characteristics of the IMM-based MakerPal products.
IMM-based MakerPal features:
1.Unfilled orders can have 30% APY compensation, placing orders without worry.
2.Filled orders also will incentive commission, for all users.
3.Innovation of the traditional order book form.
4.No impermanent loss, no need to worry about the mainstream coin assets damage.

Everyone should be ready with their questions, we will give only 1 minute to post questions. Also, follow the rules and join BitWell telegram group at https://t.me/BitWell_English
Antonio |: ok let us move ahead to our last question of the segment
Antonio |: 5. From @micki_26 Derivative trading is a trade that has a higher risk than spot trading. As a derivatives platform, what does Bitwell offer users to be interested in joining Bitwell? And how does Bitwell guarantee the safety of user funds?
Yu Zhu : In terms of trading, our perpetual contracts support 150X leverage, as well as cross collateral and other features that many other platforms do not have. Users can experience more rich trading features here. The options product also has a wider variety and a better product line.
In addition, we will provide you with more online and offline activities, various kinds of airdrops, and bring you more benefits by expanding external cooperation, etc. Welcome to experience BitWell. For those who are interested, you can join our telegram group here:
