Aleph Zero is now fully integrated on Bitpanda

Jan 19, 2024

AZERO, the native coin of Aleph Zero, has been listed on Bitpanda’s main trading platform. Here’s all you need to know!

Bitpanda is one of Europe’s most compliant and innovative digital asset exchanges. This milestone comes after Aleph Zero’s initial inclusion in Bitpanda Spotlight, a platform dedicated to showcasing experimental and emerging projects in the crypto space.

Today marks a pivotal moment for the listing as AZERO transitions from being a promising project in the Spotlight to a fully-fledged offering on the Bitpanda platform.

Direct deposit, withdrawal, and staking of AZERO now available

With AZERO now listed on Bitpanda, users gain direct access to a suite of functionalities. Most notably, they can now directly deposit and withdraw AZERO. This integration greatly simplifies the process for users to manage their holdings. Moreover, the platform enables users to stake their AZERO, offering an avenue for them to engage more deeply with the Aleph Zero ecosystem while potentially earning rewards.

Bitpanda: an exchange with a strong regulatory framework

Bitpanda’s reputation as one of the most future-proof exchanges in the cryptocurrency space largely stems from its stringent adherence to regulatory compliance. Their dedication to regulatory diligence makes them a trusted platform in an industry where security and legitimacy are paramount. This listing on Bitpanda not only elevates AZERO’s standing but also aligns it with a platform recognized for its robust and compliant infrastructure.

Bitpanda is compliant with European Union’s 5th and 6th Anti-Money Laundering Directives (5AMLD and 6AMLD), which provides a legal framework at the EU level against money laundering and terrorist financing. They include stricter transparency requirements around the true ownership of companies and trusts and extend AML checks to virtual currencies, among other things.

As an Austrian company, Bitpanda is subject to regulation and oversight by the Austrian Financial Market Authority, which ensures that financial services and markets operate properly and that clients are treated fairly.

It also follows Payment Services Directive 2 (PSD2) that applies to European payment services, including those provided by cryptocurrency exchanges. It aims to improve consumer protection, enhance the security of payments, and encourage the development of innovative online and mobile payment services.

Tapping into Europe’s Compliant Exchange Network

The listing of AZERO on Bitpanda is significant for Aleph Zero as Bitpanda stands as one of the most compliant European exchanges, known for its stringent adherence to regulatory norms. This compliance is not just a mark of reliability but also an indication of Bitpanda’s commitment to providing a secure trading environment. 

Bitpanda’s role as a digital asset infrastructure provider for N26, a leading competitor of Revolut in the banking sector, underscores its influential position in the financial technology space, which could provide an interesting venue for Aleph Zero.

This is yet another milestone on our mission to make AZERO as widely accessible as possible, both on regional markets and on large, global exchanges. Stay tuned for future news!
