Bitpanda Pro becomes One Trading after completing a successful Series A


By Bitpanda

We're delighted to announce that Bitpanda Pro, our digital asset exchange for seasoned traders and finance institutions, is rebranding and becoming 'One Trading'. After a successful €30m Series A round, it's launching as an exchange entirely independent from Bitpanda.

A separate but bright future ahead

At Bitpanda, we’ve got a philosophy of remaining agile and focused to deliver top-tier services in a rapidly changing environment. Recognising its immense potential, we always knew from the outset that when we launched Bitpanda Pro in 2019, it would naturally evolve into its own entity. This has been our strategy early on.

Now, having completed a successful €30m Series A funding round led by Peter Thiel’s Valar Ventures, Bitpanda Pro has rebranded as One Trading. While Bitpanda will retain a small stake in the company, One Trading will have complete independence as they embark on this journey with full autonomy to innovate and grow more dynamically. A huge congratulations to the One Trading team. We wish them good luck and all the best in their bright future!

Meet One Trading

Under the leadership of CEO Josh Barraclough, One Trading is committed to making crypto trading safe and accessible for everyone. They aim to bridge the gap between retail and institutional customers, providing an institutional-grade platform. Additionally, they are striving to address the shortage of regulated venues in Europe by offering more sophisticated trading products aimed at professional traders and institutional clients.

In terms of licensing, One Trading plans to operate under a MiFID Trading Venue License, thereby enhancing their existing Virtual Asset Service Provider (VASP) registration in Italy.

A new chapter, still the BEST of friends

Even though One Trading will be setting off on their own path, we’ll still be maintaining a friendly relationship, with BEST still available to buy and sell via One Trading.

In fact, there won’t be any discernible difference between how BEST was traded previously on Bitpanda Pro and now via One Trading, with fees remaining the same and BEST Rewards still only being earned from holding BEST directly on Bitpanda. 

Meanwhile, at Bitpanda, we’re excited to shift even more focus into developing new functionalities for BEST on Bitpanda broker and establishing the ecosystem even further as part of our Investing-as-a-Service offering, Bitpanda Technology Solutions.

What’s next for both?

As One Trading embarks on its independent journey, significant infrastructure changes and the rebranding completely separating it from Bitpanda are just the beginning. They have imminent plans to launch USD trading, introduce a feature-rich set of tools, new asset listings, and a fully-regulated derivatives offering (license under application).

Meanwhile, at Bitpanda, we’ll continue to focus on simplifying wealth creation for all, while also continuing to disrupt the industry with innovation through our launch of Bitpanda.ai

Through Bitpanda Technology Solutions, we’re also focused on providing a swift and seamless route for institutions to meet the growing demand for modern investing solutions, just as we have with Raiffeisenlandesbank NÖ-Wien, Coinbase N26, Plum, and more, to bring safe and secure investing to more and more people.
