"This space is complex, and while there are a fierce number of companies out there trying to win, very few have the right tech, expertise and culture to make this happen," Barraclough said.
The appointment comes just a few months after Bitpanda raised $263 million in a Series C round led by Peter Thiel's Valar Ventures. The Vienna-based cryptocurrency exchange also raised capital from Alan Howard, REDO Ventures, LeadBlock Partners and Jump Capital. The latest funding round brought Bitpanda's valuation at the $4.1 billion mark. Bitpanda plans to use the funding for international expansion and growth.
