The Vienna-based cryto brokerage Bitpanda had announced the completion of a $52 million series A, led by Valar Ventures. If you include their past funding rounds since 2016, they've rased over $100 million in total.
According to data from CoinGecko, Bitpanda Pro handles around $2 million in daily volume. If you factor in their precious metal trading, they had over a $1 billion in volume in 2019.
Eric Demuth, CEO of Bitpanda, had this to say:
“This investment from Valar Ventures is a major vote of confidence in Bitpanda and our vision from one of the world’s pre-eminent investors in successful fintech companies. By using industry-leading technology and building innovative financial tools, we’re democratising investing and giving everyone access to the financial markets, no matter their financial means.
