Bitpanda Expands into MENA with Over 5 Million Users and AED 400 Million in Revenue

Bitpanda.com, the renowned crypto broker platform from European fintech unicorn Bitpanda, has now garnered the trust of over five million retail users following a significant growth period.

In Q1 2024, Bitpanda reported a record revenue exceeding AED 400 million, and in Q2, nearly 500,000 new users joined the platform as European investors increasingly turned to secure digital asset trading.

Throughout 2022 and 2023, Bitpanda invested substantially in new products and services as part of a strategy to prepare for the next bull market. The company acquired several new licenses from major regulators, including BaFin, and relaunched Bitpanda Technology Solutions, its B2B-focused white-label solution. Additionally, Bitpanda established partnerships with prominent institutions like Deutsche Bank, N26, LBBW, and Raiffeisen.

The digital assets sector’s positive developments have spurred increased investment interest from both Europe and the Middle East. The UAE, with its digital assets market projected to grow by 8.01% and reach a market volume of $616.80 million by 2028, has been a key factor in Bitpanda’s recent expansion. With a DMCC license, Bitpanda launched Bitpanda MENA in early May during the Dubai Fintech Summit to meet the growing demand for digital assets in the region. Although the offering is not currently available to retail investors, Bitpanda’s expansion solidifies its position as Europe’s leading crypto company and strengthens its global presence.

Lukas Enzersdorfer-Konrad, Deputy CEO of Bitpanda, commented, “We have the right products, a proven history of working with regulators, immense trust from our users and partners – including Deutsche Bank, LBBW, and FC Bayern Munich – and we remain absolutely focused on growth. It took us five years to reach our first million users; we achieved this same feat in the past 12 months alone, with over 500,000 users joining us in just the last three months. We know we’re on the right track, and as we approach our 10th anniversary later this year, we have much to celebrate.”

Walid BenOthman, Managing Director, added, “While we are proud of our progress in Europe and the success we’ve achieved over the past decade, our growth is driven by continuous innovation. That’s why we are now targeting the Middle East, to further solidify our global standing as a leading fintech. “With a 25% surge in users over the past 12 months, we are confident in the potential of the MENA region and aspire to achieve similar success in the coming year.” We look forward to what the future holds.”

In conclusion, it is evident that investor interest in digital assets and fintech is surging, with the MENA region emerging as a key focal point for many. The palpable potential of this market is attracting global attention, highlighting the region’s growing significance in the financial technology landscape.

As companies like Bitpanda continue to expand and innovate, the MENA region is on its way to becoming a central hub for digital asset trading and fintech development, driving further growth and opportunities in the industry.
