More rewards with an autographed jersey of football star Messi and popular fan tokens are up for grabs this year.

Seychelles, Oct. 28, 2022 — Leading cryptocurrency exchange Bitget unveils details and awards for King’s Cup Global Invitational (KCGI) Fall 2022, its upcoming global crypto futures trading competition. Being Bitget’s third KCGI and celebrating World Cup Qatar 2022 hosted in the same period, the tournament will be themed around football and the mega event. Participants will compete to share a prize pool of up to 100 Bitcoin (BTC) and popular fan tokens and have a chance to win a coveted autographed jersey of renowned football star Lionel Messi.

KCGI will kickstart the registration period on Oct. 28. In the new edition, Team Battle is closely tied to the World Cup theme, as well as the schedule and phased reward system. Moreover, two new reward modes will be introduced: the Invitational Competition rewards players for the number of referrals they bring to the competition, and the Individual Fun Competition allows participants to earn “football points,” which can be redeemed for mystery token boxes. Together with the Team Battle, KCGI players will have ample opportunities to team up, trade and win a plethora of rewards.

Bitget recently announced its partnership with Messi, the iconic Argentinian footballer, and aims to offer Messi fans a unique opportunity to explore Web3 and the crypto world while enjoying engagement with the football star. Along with the trophies and awards mentioned above, winners of KCGI have a chance to get an autographed jersey of Messi. 

Debuted in 2021, the appeal of KCGI has drawn enormous responses, as the last two competitions received over 12,000 participants in total. The most recent KCGI Spring competition, KCGI 2022: The Throne’s Calling, closed with a total participation of 4,754 trading enthusiasts from all over the globe. 

Gracy Chen, managing director of Bitget, commented, “We are glad to see that KCGI has already become one of the most desired events in our community and the industry. The overwhelming responses from traders and the excellent performance of winners push us to take the tournament a step forward. We have optimized the competition system with more options for different sorts of traders and a new theme of the global football mega event. It is not only about investment, but also fun. As part of our ethos, we want to expand the world of Web3 to all corners of the globe and all walks of life. Our partnerships with sporting legends reflect our philosophy that better trading and a better life are symbiotic. Bitget’s social trading initiative and our global futures trading tournament, KCGI, are naturally synergistic.” 

“The launch of this season’s KCGI also coincides with the integration of our new ‘Bitget Insights’ feature, where crypto trading insights and information can be disseminated in a social media-friendly format — without the shilling, spam or misinformation. We encourage KCGI players, in addition to all our platform users, to use Bitget Insights to seek out smarter trades or technical analyses that may give them the edge over their competition. Not financial advice, but as the last few seasons have shown, the competition is fierce in KCGI.”
