If you receive such emails, please contact our support team via our contact form.
With BEST you gain easy access to an entire ecosystem built to diversify your wealth across cryptocurrencies, digital assets and precious metals from the comfort of your home, just with the click of a button.

Every verified Bitpanda user will be able to claim the BEST airdrop. Furthermore, users who hold PAN on Bitpanda will be able to claim an extra amount of BEST.
To summarise all the key information you have to know about the two BEST airdrops:
- The total BEST airdrop pool is 20 million BEST. 10 million for verified Bitpanda users, plus 10 million for users with at least 500 PAN in their Bitpanda wallet
- Users must claim each of the two airdrops between 09.07.2019 and 12.08.2019 on the Bitpanda platform
- First airdrop: 10 million BEST will be shared on the 13.08.2019 between every verified Bitpanda user (light and fully verified), who claimed the airdrop from 09.07.2019 and 12.08.2019
- Second airdrop: 10 million BEST will be shared between every Bitpanda user on the 13.08.2019 with at least 500 PAN (unverified or verified) in their Bitpanda wallet and who claimed this airdrop. The more PAN a user holds, the higher their share among the 10 million BEST for PAN holders will be. Please note that in order to receive this airdrop, users have to hold at least 500 PAN in their Bitpanda wallet by 13.08.2019 from 1pm to 2pm (CET)
- Both airdrops will be credited to eligible users on 13.08.2019, right after the snapshot. Please note that if you do not automatically receive the airdrop, there is nothing we can do about this, even when you contact us. A retrospective credit of the airdrops is not possible
- If you already have a Bitpanda account there is no need to create a new one in order to claim the airdrops. You will be able to claim both airdrops with your existing Bitpanda account through the Bitpanda Platform
