Robinhood started as a fee-free stock brokerage and recently expanded into the world of digital currencies. The best part: No fees! You can buy and sell Bitcoin and other digital currencies completely fee-free on this platform. Since February 2018, Robinhood supports Bitcoin and Ethereum trades and market data for another 15 currencies. Robinhood Crypto is technically a separate account from a Robinhood stock account. Crypto accounts support market and limit orders.
Your coins are stored in the same Robinhood account you use for your stocks and share a login. Robinhood is mobile first and just recently added a Web version, so it is best for people comfortable managing money from their phone or tablet. While you may need to login on the small screen to access your account, you can’t beat free!
The biggest downside is that Robinhood only works in 16 states for cryptocurrency trades, but it plans to add more in the future. But if you do live in one of those states, Robinhood Crypto is a great option to get started in Bitcoin or Ethereum trading.
