Robinhood App Expands Cryptocurrency Trading to Another US State

Two months after starting to roll out crypto trading, Robinhood has finally expanded the service to another American state. For now, its still supporting just bitcoin and ethereum, however the app is expected to add at least another fourteen cryptocurrencies eventually.

Robinhood Crypto Reaches Colorado

Robinhood App Expands Cryptocurrency Trading to Another US StateRobinhood Financial LLC, the Palo Alto-headquartered US stocks brokerage app, has added another location where cryptocurrency trading is supported for its clients Colorado. The company officially announced on Friday on its twitter page that: Robinhood Crypto is coming to a Rocky Mountain near you! Commission-free Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) trading is now rolled out and available to investors in Colorado.

Home to over 5.5 million people, Colorado is perhaps most known around the world for being the first American state to legalize both the medicinal and recreational consumption of marijuana. It is only the sixth location in the country where Robinhoods cryptocurrency trading service is made available after the company initially launched it inCalifornia, Massachusetts, Missouri, Montana, and New Hampshire back in February.

Reaping the Benefits of Crypto

At launch, Robinhood promised to add in many more states for crypto trading later on if everything goes as planned. As it seems now, whatever is keeping the company from rolling out nationwide immediately, it is not a lack of success. Crypto helped Robinhood reach over 4 million users (up from just 3 million in November 2017), well over $100 billion in transaction volume, and to a valuation of $5.6 billion in a new funding round (up from just $1.3 billion in a round a year before).

Besides the few selected states that the cryptocurrency trading service is available in, Robinhood also already offers market data on a total of sixteen cryptocurrencies including bitcoin, ethereum, bitcoin cash, litecoin, ripple, ethereum classic, zcash, monero, dash, stellar, qtum, bitcoin gold, omisego, neo, lisk and dogecoin. The company is also working on Robinhood Feed, a way to discuss cryptocurrencies, news, and market swings in real-time with other investors on the platform.
