≪Leveraging Bitpanda's infrastructure has enabled us to integrate a crypto investment functionality within the N26 experience, reflecting the same flexibility and ease of use that N26 is known for. Their solution allowed us to make this highly-requested product available to our customers with a broad range of over 150 digital coins - one of the most comprehensive selections available through a digital bank.≫
