Bitpanda is a Vienna-based cryptocurrency exchange that currently offers its more than 3 million users access to 1,000 digital assets.

Bitpanda Will Allow Project Developers to Request Their Cryptos to Be Listed
According to a report on February 17, Bitpanda announced that it plans to add new tokens every week in response to growing user demand.
In addition to regularly selecting tokens to add, Bitpanda will allow project developers to request their tokens to be listed
Chief Executive Eric Demuth in a press release stated that Cryptocurrency investors know that the early stages are critical to success, which is why they have decided to list new batches of cryptocurrencies every week, giving our community one-click access to cutting-edge crypto assets directly from their Bitpanda accounts.
Before new cryptocurrency and token projects go public, they are screened and go through a due diligence process conducted by Bitpanda’s Asset Listing Committee.
Requirements for new cryptocurrency projects include verification of market capitalization and stability.
In March last year, Bitpanda completed a $170 million Series B round, becoming Austria’s first unicorn startup.
In December, the first exchange-traded cryptocurrency note (ETC) was launched, which replicates the price of Bitcoin and is traded in euros. Bitpanda Bitcoin ETC is physically backed by Bitcoin held in cold storage by regulated custodians.
