Bitpanda, an Austrian trading platform, has bought Trustology for an unknown sum. The agreement will open the door for the company to develop its custodian service for institutional clients and professional traders. All the assets owned by BitPanda will be entrusted to Trustology’s system.
Bitpanda Procures Trustology
Although the organization refused to pay the wallet custodian the amount, a source stated that the transaction cost Bitpanda “eight-digit figures” in USD.
The crypto exchange’s first purchase comes following a fierce funding campaign in which the Austria-based business realized roughly $451 million in different stages in 2021. According to recent funding in August, the firm was valued at over $4.01 billion.
The creation of a custodian service will take the crypto exchange “nearer to developing a top regulated, and safe digital financial market for everybody including experts and more buyers,” according to Eric Demuth, the organization’s CEO.
From October 2021, Trustology Inc, which would be renamed: Bitpanda Custody, has already been authorized as a virtual currency business by the regulation body, Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) of the United Kingdom. Trustology was among the few cryptocurrency firms that met the requirements of the British regulator concerning money theft.
All the assets owned by BitPanda will be entrusted to Trustology’s system. According to the crypto giant, it will be among the significant crypto custodians in the world.
Bitpanda looks at the purchase as a stepping stone in turning the Bitpanda Pro system into a complete premium exchange firm. Last October, the firm employed Joshua Barraclough, a former staff at JPMorgan, to oversee the system. Block Media reported a couple of weeks later that the business was planning to start a cryptocurrency by-product department.
“This is a huge step forward for the company, and particularly for the Bitpanda Pro initiative,” Barraclough added. “Recently, the organization has put a lot of effort into updating Bitpanda Pro and expanding its liquidity agreements to ensure it can compete on execution capacity with other top exchanges.” Now the corporation wants to significantly expand its presence and attract a large number of new clients.”
BitPanda is an Austrian-based crypto exchange that mainly serves Europe. The platform was established in 2014 and since then has evolved to become one of Europe’s most popular cryptocurrency platforms for selling and buying Bitcoin. Many people are drawn to the marketplace because it offers users a straightforward UI interface. In addition, it provides a wide range of payment choices, making it simple for newbies to acquire virtual currency.
