Bitcoin Suisse Focuses on Its Growth and Product Offerings

The development by Bitcoin Suisse comes at a time when the crypto firm is focusing on expanding its offering to new products and services and to develop its international growth. In July 2020, the company raised a total of 45 million Swiss francs as part of a Series A financing round. The company planned to use the funding to scale its platform to launch a new portfolio of crypto, financial and digital assets services, and to drive forward its international growth plans.

In August last year, the crypto firm partnered with worldline, one of Europe’s leading payment providers, to enable merchants in Switzerland to accept crypto as means of payment for goods and services. Bitcoin Suisse has crypto assets of more than 6 billion Swiss francs ($6.5 billion) under management. The company, which generated revenues of 70 million francs in the first half of 2021, expects its net income to double for that year.
