Austrian Unicorn Bitpanda Secures Additional €10 Million in Extension of Series B Round

by May 11, 2021

Austrian investment platform Bitpanda announced that it has raised an additional €10 million as an extension of its Series B funding round.

This extension brings crypto and fintech investors Jump Capital and market makers Winterntermute Trading, to Bitpanda, with participation of LeadBlock Partners to strengthen their institutional offering and position in Europe.

Bitpanda’s strategic incorporation to meet this surging demand comes after a $170 million Series B round in March led by Valar Ventures and DST Global, raising the company’s valuation to $1.2 billion and giving it unicorn status.
