About Bitpanda: Coinimal GmbH is an Austrian start-up company that specialises in selling and buying Bitcoins and other cryptocurrencies. It was founded in October 2014 after a long development phase in coordination with the local authorities. The three founding members are Bitcoin enthusiasts and had personally experienced how hard it was to acquire Bitcoin in the EU. This deficiency in the market led to the idea of BitPanda.
BitPanda.com is a fully automated platform: As soon as payment is confirmed, the Bitcoins and other cryptocurrencies are automatically sent to the buyers. This technique allows us to provide our customers the best and fastest service in the business.
