Rick Steves

Bitpanda empowers fintechs, traditional banks and online platforms to offer trading, investing, and custody services across Cryptocurrencies, Stocks/ETFs, Precious Metals, and Commodities.

Bitpanda Technology Solutions has announced its 12th deal in just 6 months, taking the total number of end users who have access to digital assets via Bitpanda’s technology to more than 20m across the EU.

The BaFin-regulated European Investment-as-a-Service provider announced the availability of its regulated trading infrastructure services to the industry in January 2023.

The move allowed both traditional and new financial players to integrate a modular and scaled 24/7 trading infrastructure in as little as 3 months.

Bitpanda empowers fintechs, traditional banks and online platforms to offer trading, investing, and custody services across Cryptocurrencies, Stocks/ETFs, Precious Metals, and Commodities.

Partners can build their own user experiences on an ISO 27001 certified and battle-proofed infrastructure incl. features such as savings plans, asset-to-asset swaps and crypto staking functionality.

We at FinanceFeeds have been covering Bitpanda’s successes, including partnerships with Visa, NayaOne, Plum, HYPE, and Fabrick.

“Demand for digital trading is growing and building a solution from scratch is expensive”

Lukas Enzersdorfer-Konrad, CEO of Bitpanda Technology Solutions, said: “Banks and FinTechs can now build best-in-class investment experiences for their users to drive business, all at very low costs compared to traditional infrastructure pieces. All this enabled through Bitpanda Technology Solutions’ best trading infrastructure in the world.

“Demand for digital trading is growing and building a solution from scratch is expensive and would result in an inferior and outdated offer. Losing that potential revenue stream isn’t an option for any business. With BTS our partners get a licensed, modular, secure and scalable trading infrastructure that they can rely on in just a few months.”

Notable partners of Bitpanda include Austrian traditional bank Raiffeisenlandesbank, European mobile bank N26, French money app Lydia, UK fintech Plum, Swedish fintech P.F.C., Bulgarian fintech iCard, global payments giant Visa, crypto exchange Coinbase, and European banking fintech Mambu.

Bitpanda further explained its partnership with a few of the names mentioned above, including Raiffeisenlandesbank, N26, Coinbase, and VISA:

Raiffeisenlandesbank: RLB NÖ-Wien plans to be the first major retail bank in the European Union to include cryptocurrencies and other asset classes in its digital investment offering with Bitpanda providing the SaaS trading infrastructure to deliver on that ambition quickly and safely. This is a major endorsement for the infrastructure that Bitpanda has built, and the truth of our commitment to regulatory compliance.

N26: The largest digital bank in continental Europe became a BTS client in July 2022 and went live last October, to expand their comprehensive customer offer and bring digital trading to their app. By partnering with Bitpanda Technology Solutions, N26 can now offer its 8+ million users access to a broad range of cryptocurrencies and provide them with a state-of-the-art investing experience integrated seamlessly within the N26 app.

Coinbase: Bitpanda’s partnership with Coinbase brought together two crypto giants, to unlock digital assets trading for more people around the world. As part of the deal, Bitpanda added Coinbase’s liquidity exchange to its network, and Bitpanda Technology Solutions became the partner of choice for any of Coinbase’s institutional clients looking to offer digital assets trading in Europe.

VISA: Bitpanda joined the Visa Fintech Partner Connect programme in March. The FPC is a select group of fintechs that Visa ‘approved’ for use by their existing customers, and further established Bitpanda Technology Solutions as a reliable partner to global institutions.
