Bitpanda, formerly known under the name of Coinimal, is a brokerage service based in Vienna, Austria, which operates crypto-currencies such as the Dash, Litecoin, Ethereum and the Bitcoin. Wednesday, Bitpanda has announced the full integration of the Bitcoin Cash (BCH), adding a fifth crypto-currency supported on its platform.
A decision motivated by a strong demand
Bitpanda was founded in 2014 by Eric Demuth, Christian Trummer and Paul Klanschek offering users a brokerage service for Bitcoin and other crypto-currencies. Bitpanda hosts a portfolio and a trading platform that allows users to buy and sell crypto-currencies by credit card, via Skrill, with transfers, SEPA, and more. Recently, the company announced that users who have left funds on the platform before 1 August were to be credited by BCH. But today, because of the high demand for Bitcoin Cash after the cancellation of Segwit2x, Bitpanda offers full support for the BCH.
Bitpanda expands the flexibility of its customers
