Interview with MEXC's BizDev

With a presence in over 170 countries and regions, it caters to over 10 million users worldwide and is determined to become the leading platform for traders of all levels.

To make trading easier for investors from all over the world, MEXC provides specialized language support. Their high-speed trading engine, developed by experienced professionals in the banking sector, has the capability to complete 1.4 million transactions per second - setting them apart from competitors in terms of efficiency and performance.

To guarantee the highest level of data integrity and safety, MEXC houses its servers autonomously across numerous locations, placing user security as a top priority. With an impressive history and a vision for the future, MEXC is well-positioned to keep shaking up the cryptocurrency industry.

A company's success or failure hinges on its team, and MEXC has assembled an A-list crew to back them up. The exchange’s team includes early adopters and pioneers in finance and blockchain technologies.

Today, we’ve talked to one of those experts – MEXC’s Business Development Manager, Duygu G, about her journey, role, and thoughts on the industry.

Tell a little about yourself and your background. What led you to become who you are today, professionally speaking?

Briefly, I started trading crypto by myself, but before trading, I needed to learn many things. Cryptocurrency is a whole different ball game than banking. I remember my first wallet transfer, it was pretty cringe. At that time, I was working for a social media company, and I was not happy with that. So, I told myself, why not be in the crypto sector?

Can you provide an overview of your role as a Business Development Manager at MEXC and your experience in the crypto industry?

As a BizDev, I work with brokers, traders, and influencers to bring more users and volume to MEXC. It has been more than 1.5 years at MEXC. And before joining MEXC, I worked for two other exchanges and one crypto news website.

What criteria does MEXC consider when deciding to list a new token or cryptocurrency?

MEXC prefers gem projects that have never been listed before or have just been listed on DEXes. Those projects should be evaluated from many perspectives, such as design, codes, community, capital, and roadmap.

How does MEXC assess the tokenomics and utility of new projects seeking listing on the exchange?

Every exchange has an audit team to analyze tokenomics and ownership status. I mean, if the project holds tokens in one wallet, it is a reason not to be listed.

What advice do you have for Web3 projects looking to enhance the utility and attractiveness of their tokens?

I think utilities should be at the core. Many projects see utilities as a part of the roadmap. Utilities should knit the roadmap.

How can Web3 projects enhance their chances of getting listed on MEXC, and what steps should they take?

They can first be transparent with their communities. MEXC does not wait for “Ethereum killers,” but for good builders such as Ethereum and Polygon. Also, they can check out MEXC Ventures, which invests in highly qualified projects and protocols.

How does MEXC approach partnerships, and what types of collaborations are you currently seeking?

MEXC is one of the top tier-1 exchanges that looks for and is open to new partnerships. Projects that aim to be at MEXC or communities that want to be part of the MEXC family (MEXCers) can reach out to contribute more value.

Can you share examples of successful partnerships or collaborations?

MEXC Ventures has signed a formal strategic investment agreement with TON (The Open Network). TON is a blockchain ecosystem integrated with Telegram that aims to enable billions of users to experience digital ownership.

From your perspective, what are the current trends in the crypto industry?

Memecoins are one of the recurrent trends. Nowadays, more projects want to build their own network, and they are more friendly to each other. NFTs have faded away and gaming is looking for a new soul.

Are there plans to expand educational offerings to support the growing Web3 ecosystem?

This is desirable for users. In the future, MEXC Academy can provide more online and offline guides for traders and new crypto users.

Name the top three challenges in the Web3 BizDev process.

Finding the right people, building a consistent and sustainable relationship, and catching the speed of the sector.
