The bitcoin trading is the first service included in the white label solution wpNex.

Bitcoin, as the established crypto-currency with the largest market capitalization in the world, offered the best conditions for the pilot, but will not remain the only digital asset we make available for trading,” said Dr. Heiko Beck, the boss of dwpbank.

MLP Banking AG was the first partner to test the platform. In cooperation with dwpbank, we would like to offer our clients the ability to trade crypto-currencies in the future. In our MLP client portal, this is a logical addition to the existing wealth management offering,” explained an executive of the company, which plans to officially launch the service later this year.
