The trading giant is slowly rolling out this feature to gain public interest. Also, they have to keep a track of the state regulations independently for every state to gain clearance for residents to trade digital coins. It usually increases the time required for its processing. As per Robinhood’s support page, trading is available in more than 18 states as of now. However, at this stage, It’s users can only buy, hold or sell the currencies. It is because they don’t have access to their private keys and of the dearth of a wallet interface. Currently, users cannot send or receive coins. However, Robinhood has stated of its plans to include transfers “in the near future”.
Robinhood’s blog update states,
“With the release of Robinhood Crypto, we’re continuing our mission of making the financial system work for everyone, not just the wealthy.”
Assuming that the roll-out runs smoothly, Robinhood is set to join the list of the largest cryptocurrency platforms with over 4 million users currently.
