RBI is a leading corporate and investment bank, headquartered in Austria, which is operating in 13 markets in Central and Eastern Europe. According to available information, it currently has 46,000 employees, who take care of 16.7 million customers through 2,000 business outlets.
As Europe’s leading investment platform, we’re not only aiming to offer easy access to all kinds of digital assets, but we also want to give something back to the industry. That’s why we conceived Pantos as a major European Blockchain interoperability project together with the Technical University of Vienna to enable token projects to be independent of a specific blockchain.Blog Bitpanda
