Regular token burns to decrease the supply

A part of the BEST spent on trading premiums on Bitpanda is burned on a quarterly basis until 50% of the total BEST is destroyed. This means that the supply is constantly decreasing.

FAQ

  • What is Bitpanda’s vision?

    We are working hard on tearing down the barriers to investing and bringing traditional financial products into the 21st century. Today, Bitpanda has over 1 million users and more than 190 team members. With a PSD2 payment service provider licence, state-of-the-art security and streamlined user experience, Bitpanda has grown into a popular trading platform for newbies and experts alike.

    At its core, Bitpanda is an easy to use, straight-forward trading platform, which lowers the entry barriers and makes investments accessible for everyone. Users can currently trade cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Ethereum or IOTA, while we also offer innovations like digitised precious metals, stablecoins and over 30 other digital assets.
    But this is just the beginning. Our mission is to tear down barriers and make investing as easy as ordering a pizza or a taxi. We are passionate about allowing everyone, no matter their budget, to get access to investment products under fair, transparent and convenient conditions.

  • What is the Bitpanda Ecosystem Token (BEST) and what are the benefits?

    BEST is the Bitpanda token that offers the growing community of over 1 million Bitpanda users a wide range of rewards and benefits within the Bitpanda ecosystem. BEST is issued by Bitpanda. By investing in BEST, you will enjoy a reduction of up to 25% on Bitpanda trading premiums, and benefit from a wide range of upcoming features and rewards.

    BEST will play a vital role in Bitpanda’s global expansion and in making our vision of changing the rules of investing a reality. BEST is the fuel of the Bitpanda ecosystem, which means that Bitpanda, Bitpanda Pro and future products will make heavy use of incorporating BEST and offering users, who hold BEST, exclusive rewards and perks.

  • What is the difference between Pantos and BEST?

    Pantos, the joint scientific research project from Bitpanda and the Technical University of Vienna, aims to solve one of the key technical barriers in the crypto and digital asset space: interoperability between blockchains. BEST, on the other hand, is an ecosystem token for Bitpanda services, which will come with a lot of direct benefits for Bitpanda users. While the scope and features of Pantos and BEST are not the same, we aim to bring the technology developed within the Pantos project to BEST. Our goal is to implement and use Token Atomic Swap Technology (TAST), the first research endeavour within the Pantos project, as soon as it is production ready. For example, IEOs performed on the Bitpanda Launchpad could use Pantos technology in the future.
