ByBit in the Crypto Ecosystem

ByBit has an active representation in today’s digital currency environment. Coingape reported back in November 2020 the drifting of the firm’s derivatives items. In addition, ByBit launched a Cloud Mining item back in May, a product which enables anybody to mine Ethereum (ETH) from as low as $100.

ByBit is also rather prominent in the sports sponsorship arena. Besides attracting world’s top poker legends in its trading competitions, the company tattooed an international multi-year partnership with German football giant, Borussia Dortmund.

ByBit is not immune from the regulatory sweep that cryptocurrency exchanges are experiencing the world over. In one of its newest regulatory reactions, the firm closed all of its Chinese smart phone accounts as the federal government’s crackdown on Bitcoin mining and digital currency associated activities intensified back in May.
