2018 is coming to a close and we have been working extra hard on expanding our portfolio of great products. There’s lots to share with you this month so take a minute to discover what Bitpanda has been working on.
The Bitpanda Android App
After a successful beta testing period, our most exciting development the past month was the release of the Bitpanda app which is now available on the Google Play Store. We understand that users need flexibility and so we offer the same seamless experience from the web platform but now in the palm of your hand and on the go. You can read more about the Bitpanda Android App in this blog post.
Our latest feature is Bitpanda Swap with which users can exchange one cryptocurrency for another instantly and conveniently. Furthermore, there are no transaction size limits and you can swap any amount.
We have integrated Ethereum Classic (ETC) for trade-only use on the Bitpanda platform. That means that you can buy and sell the cryptocurrency on the platform. Full integration including withdrawal will follow shortly so keep your eyes open.
In addition to adding Ethereum Classic, we also added NEO — which is a smart contract platform and widely known as China’s first blockchain platform. The token is still in trade-only mode so for the time being, users can buy and sell freely.
If you didn’t already read about it on our blog or social channels, Bitcoin Cash deposits and withdrawals are now live again after the hash war. We only credit Bitcoin Cash (ABC) coins sent to Bitpanda so that means deposited Bitcoin Cash (SV) coins will be lost.
App Launch Giveaway
To celebrate the release of our brand new app, we gave away cryptocurrencies to those who signed up to Bitpanda with verified accounts. Each user had the chance to win a random amount of one of our supported cryptocurrencies from €5 to €200. All prizes were claimed within one day with over 10,000 people signing up and downloading the app.
The marketing department launched a new series called ‘Crypto Cards.’ This is a new, fun series that will help newcomers and experienced folk in the cryptocurrency sphere to learn about the cryptocurrencies that Bitpanda has on offer. We will teach you the the whos, whats, wheres and hows of each project or coin.
Bitpanda is now listed on Blockfolio, one of the world’s most popular portfolio management platforms which features a convenient and smooth interface to track your cryptocurrencies.
Our social media channels are the best way to stay informed about Bitpanda’s latest coin additions, products and features. If you’d like to get involved in the discussion or simply want to reach out to us then you can do so on one of our social media channels.
Bitpanda sponsors Austrian Startups
As a startup company itself, Bitpanda is always happy to lend a helping hand to innovative and exciting startup companies. That’s why we didn’t hesitate to take the chance to become a sponsor of Austrian Startups which is an independent non-profit platform and think-tank for entrepreneurship in Austria.

Bitpanda and SOS-Kinderdorf
We’d like to take a moment to tell you about our fundraiser. In Uganda, many girls don’t have the option to go to school and boys are preferred. We think that sucks. So together with SOS-Kinderdorf, we are raising Bitcoin, Ethreum and XRP and will match all donations until we a total amount of 1 BTC. That means if you donate 0.02 BTC, you actually donate 0.04!
