Where to buy Bitpanda Ecosystem in the UK

It looks like BEST may not be available to purchase on an exchange in the UK.

You can still purchase BEST by using a decentralised exchange (DEX) instead. Decentralised exchanges are web applications that run on blockchains like Ethereum and allow users to trade any asset directly with one another.

Decentralised exchanges (DEX) are unregulated and run using autonomous pieces of code known as smart contracts. To use a DEX you must interact with the blockchain directly, which is not recommended for novice users. Please learn about decentralised exchanges first if you're unfamiliar.

How to purchase BEST using a decentralised exchange.
  1. Find BEST on a decentralised exchange and make sure Bitpanda Ecosystem can be traded for ETH which is the native asset of Ethereum. Popular DEXs include Uniswap, SushiSwap and 1INCH.
  2. Buy ETH to trade for BEST using an exchange like CoinJar. You will need to purchase enough ETH to swap for BEST as well as ETH to pay for transaction fees on the Ethereum network (known as gas). You can use a service like Etherscan to get an idea of how much gas fees currently cost.
  3. Transfer the ETH into a web 3.0 wallet like MetaMask to connect to the DEX.
  4. Trade ETH for BEST on the DEX of your choice, following the instructions on screen. Make sure to leave enough ETH in your wallet to pay for gas.
  5. Wait for the transaction to finalise and the BEST tokens will arrive in your wallet.
  6. You may now keep the tokens in your web 3.0 wallet or transfer them somewhere more secure like a hardware wallet.

Is Bitpanda Ecosystem a good investment?

It's always extremely important to do your due diligence before purchasing cryptocurrency. Both the token and the associated platform should be evaluated. Here are a few things to consider before buying BEST:
  • Established community: Bitpanda has been operational for more than 5 years. In that time the broker has developed a strong community base of more than 2 million users. The exchange has, so far, stood the test of time, which is encouraging.
  • Community investment: The Bitpanda Ecosystem Token was released to the public via an Initial Exchange Offering (IEO) in 2019. According to, the company was able to raise more than $51 million.
  • Fixed supply: The maximum supply of tokens is capped at 1 billion. There is no scope for this number to increase in the future. 500 million tokens were sold to prospective buyers during the token’s initial IEO. The remaining tokens are being held as company reserves.
  • Range of assets: The Bitpanda ecosystem currently provides full support for a wide range of crypto assets. The platform also allows the users to purchase cryptocurrencies using fiat currencies including the US dollar (USD), Euro (EUR), British pound (GBP) and Swiss franc (CHF). This flexibility should help Bitpanda maintain and potentially increase its user base, which will drive demand for the BEST token.
