Bitpanda CEOs Paul Klanschek and Eric Demuth join Charlie Shrem on this week’s episode of Untold Stories. They begin by discussing some of Bitpanda's unorthodox marketing techniques as well as their focus on education and user experience. Charlie asks about their sales which reveals a strong increase in retail buying of Bitcoin and gold, and leads to a discussion of gold production and supply issues. They shift gears a little and talk about how Eric and Paul started working together, what it's like with two CEOs, and the company's growth and environment. They also cover what led Eric and Paul to Bitcoin and some of their formative business experience in and out of crypto. They then talk about stablecoins and decentralized marketplaces before they finish up discussing the importance of investing for the long haul and self-education.
