Bitpanda, the EU bitcoin and cryptocurrency exchange, today announced the live launch of its expanded global service, the Bitpanda Global Exchange. The company has been administering an IEO for its native token (BEST) over the past months, and reports raising €43.6 million in private and public sales.
The Bitpanda Global Exchange will offer traders crypto-to-crypto trading around the world (excluding the USA and China) and fiat-to-crypto trading in more than 54 countries.
Supported trading pairs at launch include: BTC/EUR, BTC/USDT, ETH/EUR, XRP/EUR, MIOTA/EUR, ETH/BTC, XRP/BTC, MIOTA/BTC, PAN/BTC, BEST/BTC, BEST/EUR, and BEST/USDT, with more to come.
Traders who use the native BEST token to pay for fees will receive an additional 25% off.
Airdrop & Launchpad
Additionally, Bitpanda users will have until 12/08/2019 to claim two BEST airdrops: 10 million BEST will be distributed between all verified users, with another 10 million BEST distributed between users holding at least 500 PAN in their Bitpanda wallet. Both airdrops will be credited to eligible users on 13/08/2019.
After completing the IEO, the company is planning to use the funds raised to drive the expansion of the Bitpanda ecosystem, which includes the upcoming Bitpanda Launchpad in 2020.
