A successful ecosystem starts with a healthy and constructive community. That’s why we’re working so hard to build something that serves every single one of you.
To achieve that, we put together this guide which outlines all the information you need to know in order to begin getting involved with our community. Let’s start with the house rules, we don’t have many but they are important.
General community rules:
These rules apply when taking part in any of our forums and groups. Please read them carefully as violations will mean that we have to take action.
- Be nice to each other, show respect and talk about things related to Bitpanda
- Criticism is welcome but please do not dispense baseless negativity
- Promoting other brokers, exchanges or referral links will result in a ban
- Posting fake prices and/or charts will result in a ban
- If you need account-related support, please do not ask for it on social media or in the forums - open a support ticket here
- Please do not contact admins via private chats. We will not answer questions this way and admins will never contact you via private chats
The Bitpanda subreddit is the centre of our community. With weekly discussions, AMAs and general chats, it’s the best place to make your voice heard and take part in the discussion around Bitpanda. Users can come to our subreddit with questions, queries, concerns, feature requests or anything really.
And this is where one of Reddit’s greatest features comes in to play: users have the option to ‘upvote’ or ‘downvote’ these posts. 🔼🔽
What this essentially means is that members can agree or disagree with something that another member has posted. This is great because you can give us your opinion on anything and we can get a clear idea of how popular that opinion is!
Ask the founders...anything!
We’ve committed to holding AMA (ask me anything) sessions with one of the co-founders and CEOs of Bitpanda every two months. This is your chance to chat one-on-one with those who actually make the decisions. The AMAs are usually very lively, so make sure to get your questions in fast.
Competitions, giveaways and Bitpanda goodies
BEST tokens, hoodies and even solid gold coins - these are some of the things we have given away in our competitions and promotions so far. If you don’t want to be left with FOMO then simply subscribe to our subreddit and get started.
Making a reddit account is extremely easy and takes just 20 seconds. Do it now so you don’t miss out on the next event or giveaway.

You can recognise official Bitpanda team members by the grey "admin" title on the right side of their name.
Scammers are tricky and often use dirty tactics to try and impersonate Bitpanda admins. If you are still unsure, please click on the member and see the @ handle:
