Seychelles-based Bitget was established in 2018 and is currently ranked 8th for trust score, according to CoinGecko. The exchange handles $735 million in daily trade volume, offers 548 crypto trading pairs, and claims to have 8 million users.
The exchange’s native token, BGB, jumped by over 4% after the news was out. There has been little movement for the Fetch.ai FET token, which was changing hands for $0.347.
JPMorgan Harnesses ChatGPT
Wall Street banking giant JPMorgan is also keen on AI solutions. On April 27, it was reported that the bank had developed an AI tool based on ChatGPT that can analyze Federal Reserve policy statements.
The tool derives a “Hawk-Dove Score,” which enables bank analysts to detect potential trading signals.
The system can predict central bank monetary policy tightening and is predominantly hawkish at the moment.
The Fed is expected to raise interest rates by 0.25 basis points next week as it battles with high inflation.
