Friday 24 March 2023 15:23 CET | News

Austria-based fintech Bitpanda has joined the Visa Fintech Partner Connect programme and announced plans to expand outside Europe.


Through this collaboration, Visa’s partners will gain the ability to access Bitpanda's investment infrastructure solutions. In short, financial institutions, banks and fintechs will be able to offer trading and investment services for asset classes such as stocks/ETFs, precious metals, crypto, and commodities to their end customers. 

According to, banks and fintechs from all over the world are responding to an increase in user demand for crypto by working on their own crypto use cases. These include offering investing to retail customers, private banking, high-net-worth individuals, or corporates for their treasury activities. Bitpanda expects crypto adoption to continue to grow at a rapid pace in the following years as regulatory bodies are providing clearer frameworks for banks to safely engage with the crypto industry.
