The customers of the neo bank N26 had been waiting for it for a long time. Thanks to a partnership with the Austrian platform Bitpanda, N26 launches cryptocurrency trading tools.

Starting today, customers in Austria are able to buy, sell and trade over 100 cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), Dogecoin (DOGE) or again AVAX of Avalanche.

In terms of fees, N26 charges its customers 1.5% for Bitcoin transactions et 2.5% for all other cryptocurrencies. This corresponds to the same fees as on Bitpanda. For holders of the N26 Metal offerwill they pay 1% and 2% transaction fees respectively on Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.

Valentin Stalf, CEO of N26, believes that cryptocurrencies “Remain a sought-after and attractive asset class for investors and a growing part of the financial system”, despite the fact that these have experienced a decline in value during the bear market that we are going through. He adds:

“Cryptocurrency trading is often the gateway to investing for a new generation of investors looking to explore ways to grow their wealth.”

This is clarified by N26 in its press release this service will be rolled out to other markets in the coming months. Bitpanda is thus also registered as a PSAN with the Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF), the launch of this new service in France will not be long in coming.

Other features coming on the N26?

This is not the first time that Bitpanda has managed to partner with a startup to bring cryptocurrencies to its customers. In November 2021, the French “super-app” Lydia has integrated Bitpanda’s trading solutions into its app.

In addition to cryptocurrencies and thanks to Bitpanda, Lydia also offers corporate stocks and ETFs. Thus, N26 can follow in Lydia’s footsteps and add more assets to its offer in the near future.

No matter what, this initiative by N26 could give it a second wind against its rival Revolut regarding the cryptocurrency market. The latter has actually already implemented services related to cryptoassets for several years now and still has a good lead over its competitor.
