The financial crisis turned the world upside down. It shattered trust in legacy institutions and shaped a whole generation of young people. In the meantime, Bitcoin captured the hearts and minds of those same people. It piqued their interest in saving, investing and personal finance again. And yet investing is still a pain. Investing in 2019 feels a lot like investing in 2009. You have to put up with poor user experience, unnecessary bureaucracy and high entry costs.
Our mission is to tear down those barriers and make investing in digital assets as easy as ordering a pizza or a taxi.
Bitpanda is Europe‘s leading platform for digital assets. Around 1 million users can easily and securely buy, sell and hold Bitcoin as well as more than 25 crypto assets including digitised gold and silver. Based in Vienna, Austria, we employ over 100 talented people from over 30 countries. The new Bitpanda headquarters is located in the heart of Vienna and comprises around 3,000 square meters to have enough space to grow. In April 2019, Bitpanda received a PSD2 payment service provider license from the Austrian financial market authority (FMA) in accordance with European law.
Our guiding principle has been from the beginning, to deliver the simplest User-Experience (UX) combined with the highest security standards. This allowed us to continuously grow since the company‘s foundation in 2014 and become well recognised within the European crypto-community. Bitpanda developed a strong reputation for being an easy-to-use, highly secure and trustworthy platform.
