We are thrilled to announce our investment in One Trading (formerly Bitpanda Pro), the regulated digital asset platform providing investors access to institutional-grade crypto assets across Europe. MiddleGame participated in the €30m round led by Peter Thiel’s Valar Ventures, with participation from Speedinvest, Keyrock and Wintermute Ventures.
Initially launched under the Bitpanda brand in 2019, One Trading is emerging as a fully independent business as it continues its mission to provide experienced traders, finance professionals and institutions with regulated and secure access to digital assets. In addition to its VASP license, One Trading intents to operate at a MiFID Trading Venue providing enhanced KYC/AML procedures and client appropriateness checks. The platform also offers access to OTC trading with instant settlement as well as the fastest retail-facing spot exchange in the market supported by institutional-grade security and post-trade settlement capabilities.
Managing Partner Pascal Bouvier shared his thoughts on the investment: “We are truly excited to be partnering with Josh and the One Trading team. Their regulatory-first approach is something both institutional and retail investors need more than ever given recent market turmoil, and their hard work to-date has set strong foundations on which they are well placed to accelerate into new product sets and derivatives.”
