BEST Burn #32 is here: plus get the latest Bitpanda ecosystem news

BEST is Bitpanda’s ecosystem token running on the Ethereum blockchain. We designed it to empower our community to get even more out of Bitpanda, with exclusive perks and weekly rewards. Read on and get all the details about the latest BEST Burn plus a roundup of the latest BEST news and updates.

The difference is BEST 

After a challenging period, the second half of 2023 saw the beginnings of a thaw in the crypto winter and a very strong end of the year for BEST. So as the 32nd BEST burn arrives, there’s no better time to remind ourselves of the critical differences that make BEST stand out against other exchange tokens. BEST serves as Bitpanda's loyalty program, rewarding active users for their engagement within the Bitpanda ecosystem. Instead of facilitating borrowing or financial transactions, BEST incentivises users to hold and earn tokens through various perks, including weekly BEST rewards and enhanced staking rewards. BEST trading primarily occurs on Bitpanda, which helps to emphasise its role as a utility token within the Bitpanda ecosystem. And as Bitpanda is a broker, and BEST volume is not publicly available or fed into external sites, sometimes the volume and prices displayed can differ.

In total, we offered prizes worth over €100,000, including 20,000 BEST! Including two lucky people who each won a Bitcoin. Thanks to everyone who took part, and keep an eye out in 2024 for even more amazing raffles.

    One of the biggest events in the crypto calendar is due to take place in the first half of 2024, and we’ve got all the information you need. The Bitcoin Halving is an event that halves the rate at which new bitcoins are created and cuts the block reward that miners receive in half. We’ve created an exciting hub where you can learn everything about Bitcoin halving, its importance in the crypto industry, impact on miners and investors like you, as well as other exciting surprises.

  • The BEST committee update
    We’ve continued working on the formation of an independent committee to look after the future of BEST. We are dedicated to establishing a robust and transparent governance structure, which includes the involvement of external experts from the industry, to ensure a sustainable and future-proof foundation for BEST. Due to our commitment to corporate and regulatory excellence, this project will take time, but we are making exciting progress towards this goal every day and hope to launch the committee in Q1 2024.

  • Bitpanda Spotlight had a massive 2023
    Bitpanda Spotlight had a positive 2023, adding exciting new projects throughout the year, including Dogami and Shimmer.
