BitKeep – the largest non-custodial cryptocurrency wallet with over 8 million users, has released the details of its updated roadmap for 2023, which foresees its rebranding into Bitget Wallet. The new document was released shortly after BitKeep received a $30 million investment from the Bitget crypto derivatives platform and joined its growing ecosystem of financial and Web3 products.
The roadmap includes a concise outline for a complete rebranding of the service including the logo and style, with reshuffling of the management team and general improvements to infrastructure security, leveraging solutions from Bitget. Among the main points outlined in the document are alignment with Bitget’s overall visual appearance, as well as technical updates that will allow the service to function as part of the broader Bitget ecosystem. Most importantly, the 8 million users of BitKeep will be able to rely on the $300 million Bitget User Protection Fund in case of any potential threats, as the one encountered in December of 2022.
Bitget received a controlling stake in the BitKeep wallet for a $30 million injection during the latest funding round. The incorporation of BitKeep into the Bitget ecosystem will have a positive impact on user protection and overall system security. BitKeep will also receive quick access to cybersecurity experience as that provided by firms like Certik and new verification support features through MD5, as well as support for hardware wallets providers like KeyStone.
Bitget has been on the track of incorporating its services into Web3 space with greater resolve and speed, as outlined in its new ‘Go Beyond Derivative Strategy’. The acquisition of BitKeep is an important step in the exchange’s desire to expand its ecosystem of products and services to turn it into a holistic bridge between the worlds of DeFi and CeFi with quick access to Web3.
