Herford, 24 June 2021 – Bitcoin Group SE (ISIN DE000A1TNV91) welcomed its 1,000,000th customer to Bitcoin.de at the beginning of the week. The company, which operates the cryptocurrency trading platform Bitcoin.de via its subsidiary futurum bank AG, thus achieved its annual target for 2021 in terms of customer acquisition ahead of schedule.
The unscheduled good customer development reflects the high demand for crypto assets. In view of historically low and in some cases even negative real interest rates, cryptocurrencies and in particular bitcoin continue to enjoy great popularity among both private and institutional investors as an asset alternative for wealth accumulation, despite the recent setbacks in individual quotations.
Another decisive factor is that Bitcoin.de as a trading platform for cryptocurrencies has been continuously expanded by the Bitcoin Group team in recent months. This applies to the functionalities and services as well as to the tradable cryptocurrencies.
“We are very pleased that we were able to break through the sound barrier of 1,000,000 customers early and much faster than expected. We see this on the one hand as proof of the trust placed in us and on the other hand as an incentive to continue offering the best functions and services for our customers on our platform. I would therefore like to expressly thank our innovative team, which has developed Bitcoin.de into a success story,” says Marco Bodewein, Managing Director of Bitcoin Group SE.

Bitcoin.de is a marketplace for crypto assets licensed in Germany and, with more than 1,000,000 customers, is also one of Europe’s largest crypto marketplaces. After almost 10 years of operation, Bitcoin.de has the reputation of being one of the most secure Bitcoin marketplaces in the world. Since users do not transfer euros to a trust account but pay conveniently from their bank account, the euros used for trading are even deposit-backed. The cryptocurrencies managed by Bitcoin.de are held 98% in secure cold wallets. Bitcoin.de is the first and only Bitcoin trading platform worldwide to have its customer credit balances audited once a year by a publicly appointed German auditing company (last audit as of November 16, 2020). The unique integration with a bank account of the Fidor Bank via express trading allows trading to be carried out as quickly as on a stock exchange. In addition to Bitcoin, on Bitcoin.de Ether (ETH), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Bitcoin Gold (BTG), Litecoin (LTC), Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (BSV) and Ripple (XRP) can be traded against euro.
