Bitcoin Cash Support Added By Cryptocurrency Brokerage BitPanda

Announcements, Now Accepting | January 5, 2018 By:

Austrian cryptocurrency brokerage platform BitPanda, formerly known as Coinimal, has fully integrated Bitcoin Cash (BCH) into its platform. The cryptocurrency becomes the fifth listed coin, joining bitcoin, ethereum, Litecoin, and Dash.

“Due to the cancellation of the planned Segwit2x fork in November, 2017, many people have turned to BCH instead,” said Bitpanda co-founder and CEO Eric Demuth. “This results in a much higher demand for Bitcoin Cash. Therefore, at the end of December, 2017, we have launched a full Bitcoin Cash support, including a wallet service. Everything is running smoothly and we feel ready to announce the fifth fully integrated Coin on Bitpanda: BCH.”

Customers can now buy and sell the newly listed cryptocurrency with all the company’s usual integrated payment options, or have it be stored safely in a personal BCH wallet. BCH will also be available offline to its Austrian post office feature, which will allow clients to exchange BCH for euros in any of the 1,300 postal partner locations.

“From now on, BCH is also available offline at all Austrian post office branches via our Bitpanda To Go service,” said Demuth. “Due to our cooperation with the Austrian Post, Bitpanda To Go allows our customers to buy five digital currencies (bitcoin, ethereum, Litecoin, Dash and now also Bitcoin Cash) from over 400 post offices and almost 1,300 postal partners throughout Austria. All that’s needed is the email associated with the Bitpanda wallet and the funds will be deposited automatically into the customer’s Bitpanda wallet.”

In addition, BCH will also be able to be used to purchase vouchers. All customers have to do is deposit funds into a verified Bitpanda account and sell the BCH, choosing an Amazon Gift card as the payout method.
