VICTORIA, Seychelles--(BUSINESS WIRE)--KuCoin, a top 5 global crypto exchange, has released its yearly review report highlighting its main metrics and achievements in 2022. KuCoin’s guiding operational principle is to maintain resiliency and view every obstacle as an opportunity to become stronger. In 2022, KuCoin achieved consistent growth in its registered users which surpassed 27 million.
The beginning of the year saw a downturn in the crypto market, while the latter half of the year presented even greater challenges and unpredictability. Despite these challenges, KuCoin – the People's Exchange – has implemented new strategies to continue to build and maintain trust with its members and the broader crypto community. The company's venture into Web 3.0 and successful financing round were the highlights of H1 2022.

In May 2022, the company reached daily trading volume highs of $23 billion in the futures market and $12 billion in the spot market. Additionally, KuCoin welcomed over 13 million new users to its platform, a YoY increase of 102%.

KuCoin's global communities, consisting of 23 language groups across multiple geographies, grew to 1.3 million members in 2022, a 30% increase from the 21 communities and 1 million members it had in 2021. KuCoin has also been at the forefront of delivering 24/7 customer support to its millions of users globally. In 2022, the new chatbot, launched in April 2022, has handled inquiries from over 870,000 users as of the end of the year.

However, much needs to be done in the industry to rebuild user trust and focus on building, innovating, and raising industry standards of transparency, security, and compliance.
