Bitpanda has a lot of exciting possibilities in its pipeline and October was spent gearing up for a busy winter. Read on to find out what we have been up to.
We were pleased to announce that we now have full-wallet integration for IOTA (MIOTA). That means you can now deposit and withdraw IOTA in the same way that you can with other cryptocurrencies on the platform. in addition, Bitpanda is one of the first businesses in the world that has collaborated with IOTA to implement IOTA Hub — a standardised, open-source solution that facilitates the integration of IOTA for service providers.
The token of our sister project, Pantos (PAN) is now officially ERC20 compatible which means it is now available to deposit and withdraw through Bitpanda.
After a successful trade-only launch for the privacy-centered cryptocurrency Zcash (ZEC), we were pleased to announce its full integration for buying, selling and withdrawing on our platform.
In addition to fully integrating Zcash, we also were able to do the same for NEM which we first added to Bitpanda at the end of August. You are now able to buy, sell and withdraw XEM from us any time you like.
We’re getting used to seeing Bitpanda everywhere as our marketing team has been busy working on spreading the word about the home of cryptocurrency.
Passengers who come to visit Austria’s capital this Autumn will be welcomed by our new adverts. The whole arrivals hall at Vienna International Airport is lit up with our new, fun video letting everyone know that we are the home of cryptocurrency.
Our CEO, Paul Klanschek, was at the Austrian Private Equity and Venture Capital Organization annual conference at the beginning of October. He was invited to share a panel with Erste Bank to discuss the future of cryptocurrencies, blockchain use cases and the impending industry regulation which is needed for this ecosystem to thrive.
Get involved in what Bitpanda is up to by following us on one of our social media profiles, we love to hear from our users!
We have substantially reduced the fee for buying Bitcoin with Bitpanda To Go vouchers which can be brought across 400 post offices in Austria. The fee has been brought down to 2,99% making this one of the cheapest ways to buy Bitcoin and more cryptocurrencies using cash.
Throughout October, we saw a small increase in the amount of scam activity around our social networks. Please be wary when interacting with social media accounts online and always look for the blue verification tick on Facebook and Twitter. Look out for such scams as “Send 1 ETH to receive 2 ETH back” as no legitimate business will ever make such an offer and you will lose your cryptocurrency. Read a more in-depth article right here.
There are so many positions available at Bitpanda right now. If you feel like you would be a great fit for one of the fastest growing startups in the world or you know someone talented who could join us then please send them the link to our job page.
That’s all for October.
Kind regards from Vienna,
