Last week, we held our first ‘Ask Me Anything’ of 2020 with Bitpanda CEO Paul Klanschek. Here's a recap of what was discussed in the subreddit!
It’s a new year and we already started with a bang or should I say - a burn? Last week, we held our first ‘Ask Me Anything’ of 2020 with Bitpanda CEO Paul Klanschek. There was a lot discussed in this session so I’m going to highlight some of the more interesting points for you. If you have a little more time, then check out the whole thread on our subreddit.
Question: 2019 was a HUGE year for Bitpanda but if you could relive it - what is one thing that you would do differently?
Paul: I would have hired more staff earlier so we had more resources in all departments to be prepared for all our features and launches. Playing catch-up isn’t much fun.
Question: With financial uncertainty in the U.K. at an all-time high, how will it affect Bitpanda or what can Bitpanda offer in the future?
Answer: Well, we have a company registered in the U.K. and if there is trouble (which we don't expect) then we can react fast.
Question: Are there any plans in the near future to reduce the barrier/price of Bitpanda Savings (€25) and offer more incentives for the young?
Paul: Absolutely. This feature is currently being worked on extensively and it will be way cheaper and easier to use in the future.
Question: You’re not doing enough marketing, when can we expect more!?
Paul: Our marketing team underwent a lot of changes in 2019 and is the fastest-growing department in the company. We recently hired a PR team who are already working hard on spreading the good news of Bitpanda and have already had several successes. We also hired a CMO who will lead the strategy in the future and we have already seen a huge growth in visibility and registration.
Question: Any update on the mentioned ‘physical product’ from Bipanda?
Paul: Closer than before but as I mentioned - no more pre-announcements!
Question: Do you have an update on bigger news?
Answer: We’re not going to make any announcements of announcements but what we can tell you is: we are now setting up a project management team dedicated to improving knowledge about Pantos. Expect a strong presence of Pantos at events!
Question: Will there be Pantos lessons in the Bitpanda Academy?
Answer: Yes, the team is working on adding it in the future.
Question: Who exactly is working on Pantos at the moment?
Answer: The researchers from the TU (Technical University of Vienna), the TU project lead, the in-house pantos researcher, the Pantos project manager and now the marketing team will be helping out more. We are searching for a Pantos community manager also.
