Bitpanda GmbH is a fintech company based in Vienna, Austria specialised in selling and buying Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. It has quickly grown to become Europe’s leading retail broker for Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and more with over 850,000 users.
After the successful launch of Bitpanda 2.0 just two weeks ago, Bitpanda is not only launching IOTA, but is ready to speed things further up and offer the users new cryptocurrencies on a regular basis.
IOTA is one of the most successful cryptocurrencies on the market and is also very interesting from a technological point of view. The integration of it has been a popular demand in the Bitpanda community, so Bitpanda is very happy to be able to offer a trade only (buy and sell) option for IOTA on the 14th of June 2018. The Bitpanda Integration Team and the IOTA Foundation are working closely together in order to get a fully functional IOTA wallet, including a withdrawal and send function, running on Bitpanda soon.
Bitpanda’s founding members Eric Demuth, Paul Klanschek and Christian Trummer are cryptocurrency enthusiasts and as such, in 2013 – during one of the bigger Bitcoin waves – they had to witness first-hand how hard it still was to acquire cryptocurrencies in Europe. This deficiency in the market led to the idea of Bitpanda and after a long coordination phase in consultation with the local authorities Bitpanda was originally founded as Coinimal GmbH in December 2014.
