Bitpanda Spotlight: New Feature Allows Investing in Emerging Coin Projects

Bitpanda, the leading European digital investment platform, today announced the launch of Bitpanda Spotlight, a platform feature designed to give customers access to early stage crypto projects.

Bitpanda’s Spotlight feature will host coin projects which are difficult to access on any other platform in Europe, allowing promising coins to take centre stage. It provides the opportunity to explore and subscribe to coin listings before trading is enabled. Customers of the leading European investment platform can subscribe to a specific project, and will become eligible to earn free tokens as well as receive a notification when the coin goes live.

This latest product launch further expands Bitpanda’s commitment to ensuring its customers have the widest possible range of choices when it comes to their finances. The projects listed on Spotlight give customers the chance to invest in something exclusive and exciting, and support the technologies and ideas they are passionate about.

Eric Demuth, co-founder and CEO of Bitpanda commented:
Bitpanda has always aimed to bring its customers the broadest crypto asset selection in Europe. Today’s launch means more choice for our investors, more ways to support the industry they believe in, and more opportunities to see returns in a challenging market. The risk profile of these projects will be higher, but any early stage investment is, be it a business or a coin. That choice should be available to everyone. Simply, safely, and securely.”

While the projects listed on Spotlight will have a higher risk profile than more established coins, everything listed on the Bitpanda broker will always follow the same stringent listing criteria. All offered cryptocurrencies and tokens have to go through the same vetting process as any other asset listed on the Bitpanda broker platform. The requirements take stability, developer and user number as well as blockchain and social media traction into account, amongst several other factors. So, they could make a valuable addition to a growing list of supported cryptocurrencies and tokens.

Spotlight is another example of how Bitpanda is supporting the crypto ecosystem. Coin creators from around the world can now apply to get their cryptocurrency projects listed on Europe’s leading digital investment platform. Shimmer (SMR) is the first example of such a collaboration, and will feature as the first ‘spotlightcoin available to Bitpanda’s audiences.

Bitpanda CEO Eric Demuth, continued:
“We first started Bitpanda because we believe in blockchain technology and the opportunities offered by cryptocurrencies. We still do, and want to give the innovators in our industry the opportunity to succeed. Shimmer is a fantastic project and we are happy to give our community a chance to invest in them.”

Over the last months, Bitpanda has worked on expanding its product offering and enhancing user experience. The unicorn fintech company is constantly engaging with the European crypto community, and this extension is a response to what customers have asked for – namely, a wider choice of crypto coins available through a trusted, regulated and highly-secure platform.
