Normally, I don't celebrate milestones, but today we made (Bitpanda) history. Surpassing the billion-dollar valuation mark in our company's seventh year. These were very intense and emotional years. The media point of view is always directed towards us as founders. However, Bitpanda is not just Paul, Christian and me. We are also a team of over 350 people who don't just do a job but who also show ownership and share a common vision. 350 people who believe in the power of innovation and technical achievements. That is what connects us and is also the connection that we need to continue nourishing.

Over the next few months, we plan to increase from 350 to around 600 team members. We're also planning extreme efforts to preserve the culture of our company. Honestly, I am in awe of this. This will probably become our greatest challenge as founders. Now, with everything we have seen, experienced and solved, I am more than confident we will overcome these upcoming challenges as a team and continue to create something huge with a real, positive impact.

Just as Bitpanda would not exist without its founders, Bitpanda could not exist without its team.
