We are proudly announcing that Bitwala’s team has achieved what we set out to do almost a year ago - build an account combining the safety and reliability of German banking with near instant and cutting-edge cryptocurrency trading in one place.
Over the last few weeks, we successfully conducted a number of bitcoin trades in a series of live tests during our pre-launch checks. The testing team traded different amounts from bitcoin to euro and vice versa. It might seem like a small step but this is a key milestone we have been working towards over the last few months.
Your wait for Bitwala’s new service will end soon. Our trading, tech, and finance teams are presently working at full speed, coordinating closely with our partner bank, to bring the trading system fully live.
Onboarding starts in December
Your support along the way kept us going and motivated to bring this major innovation to the market in just a matter of months. We strongly believe in the highest levels of quality and well-tested systems which take some time to achieve.
In the course of this week, including the upcoming weekend, we will perform further stress tests on our trading system to guarantee the quality that you deserve and expect from us. Following that onboarding will start in the coming days. Please remember that we sadly cannot onboard everybody at once. We will work hard to get everybody an account as fast as possible.
Join us at TechCrunch Disrupt Berlin this Friday
If you want to speak to our team about the progress, we would like to invite you to our stand at TechCrunch’s Event “Disrupt Berlin 2018”, this Friday, November 30. We will be demonstrating the look and feel of the first of its kind blockchain banking experience.
If you are unable to make it on Friday, please wait for more updates coming soon!
