Other features to come on 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 company stocks and ETFs. Thus, N26 could follow in Lydia’s footsteps and add more assets to its offering in the near future.
Whatever, this initiative by N26 could give it a second wind against its rival Revolut regarding the cryptocurrency market. Indeed, the latter has already implemented services related to crypto-assets for several years now and still has a good lead over its competitor.
