Bitpanda secures crypto licence in Germany, claims to be the first “European retail” crypto investment platform to do so

In an official blog post, Bitpanda announced that it has secured a crypto custody licence from the German financial authority, BaFin.

Having obtained this licence, the Austrian-based crypto exchange can now legally market its services to residents of Germany. Bitpanda also claimed to be the first retail crypto exchange based out of Europe to have achieved this distinction.
