In the first instalment of what will be a regular monthly catchup, we would like to let you know what we have been up to over the summer. July and August have been very busy and with a long list of exciting projects in the pipes — the run up to December is sure to be interesting.

EOS (EOS), NEM (XEM), Stellar (XLM) and selected ERC20 tokens tradeable

We are very happy that NEM (XEM), one of our partners in the Pantos project, is now tradeable on Bitpanda since August 23rd and another recent addition to the platform is EOS (EOS). Additionally, we added our first batch of ERC20 tokens meaning you can now trade OmiseGo (OMG), Augur (REP) and 0x (ZRX) on Bitpanda. Finally, Stellar (XLM) is fully integrated and you can trade, deposit and withdraw the token as you please.

Start of PAN Trading

PAN, the token of the first multi-blockchain token system Pantos also became tradeable on Bitpanda. The research team driving the innovative project also made significant progress which is summed up in the release of the second Technical White Paper.

Bitpanda App

On August 1 we announced the development of the Bitpanda app. We are making good progress with the development of the app and we will be running a closed beta test this month. If you’d like to take part we have some spaces left and we will give them out on a first come, first serve basis. You’ll need an Android phone to take part.


Forbes Austria interviewed Bitpanda’s CEO and co-founder Paul Klanschek as one of the country’s ’30 under 30’. For more details, you can read the whole interview in German with Paul here.

Paul also gave an interview to the Austrian news website Brutkasten, which focuses on startups in the spotlight. He talked about the launch of Pantos, trading the token and what it aims to achieve, all of which you can read right here.

To add to what has so far been a very busy summer, Paul sat alongside the Austrian Finance Minister and head of the National Bank of Austria at the renowned Forum Alpbach to discuss all things FinTech.

Social Media

We are continually looking for ways to keep in touch with our followers, that’s why we’ve recently joined Telegram. Currently, we have two growing groups — one for English speakers and one for German speakers too.

Another means of getting in touch is through the official Bitpanda subreddit, we post any and all important updates here too so if Reddit is your go-to news aggregator then be sure to subscribe.

After a small hiatus, we’ve continued putting together our glossary on all things Bitcoin and crypto to help anyone interested in the space to get a firm grasp on the most common terms that are thrown around this area. It can be complex but we’re creating bitesize chunks that aim not to overwhelm anyone.

We are hiring!

As you can see, we’ve been busy and with lots of hard work comes lots of opportunity too. If you think you’d be a right fit for Bitpanda then don’t hesitate to get in touch. There are plenty of other open positions - don’t miss out and check them out here!

All the best from Vienna,

Team Bitpanda.
