From Crypto Investments to Empowerment
Chen’s journey in cryptocurrency began in 2014 when she recognized Bitcoin’s potential and became an early investor. Since helping launch Asia’s first decentralized wallet in 2015, she has demonstrated a unique ability to identify promising blockchain projects early. In the same year, she was also named a Global Shaper by the World Economic Forum.
Today, Chen is one of the members of the popular TV show “Killer Whales,” where she evaluates Web3 and blockchain projects. Her credentials in applied mathematics and a master’s degree from MIT allow her to bring analytical experience and data-driven perspectives to investment decisions.
At Bitget, Chen orchestrated partnerships with iconic footballer Leonel Messi and ran campaigns contributing to Bitget’s brand visibility. She has quadrupled the platform’s user base since joining in 2022 and has positioned it among the top five crypto exchanges in global derivatives trading volume.
Over 40% of Bitget’s workforce is female, establishing Bitget as an industry leader in gender equality and diversity. Under Chen’s leadership, Bitget launched campaigns to promote and inspire women’s involvement in the crypto and blockchain space. The platform recently hosted a hackathon within its Blockchain4Youth campaign, which included an exclusive $10,000 prize pool for all-female teams.
Chen’s induction into the Forbes Business Council will further Bitget’s growth and benefit the entire industry. As a newly minted member of this prestigious council, Chen will share her unique insights into the crypto trading and business management sector.
