Robinhood is a mobile stock market trading app. It has gained wide popularity because it allows you to buy and sell stocks and securities for no fees. The platform will soon allow stocks, options, ETFs and cryptocurrencies. I have owned this app, which required me to be on a waiting list for a long time for over two years now, and I am very happy with the integration and progression of the company. The app has a very simple and stylish design with 4 colors total and is completely mobile. A desktop version is coming soon.
The mobile app has just announced that they will be adding Cryptocurrencies in their new ad “Don’t Sleep” relating to the fact that currencies especially cryptocurrencies trade on a 24/7 global market around the world. This is very different from the American market which runs from 9:30a to 4:00p. According to news outlets and their site they will allow users to track 16 of the top cryptocurrencies and they will allow you to trade the top two “bitcoin” and “Ethereum”. This is largely due to the recent craze among these investment vehicles and gaining popularity around the world. It seems like these days, mobile companies are trying to capitalize and keep up with the times. They will still allow trading to be commission free even on the new cryptocurrencies. This is interesting because lately Bitcoin has been having issues with its high transfer fees and transfer speeds.
The Sixteen Currencies that you can track include: Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, XRP, Ethereum Classic, Zcash, Monero, Dash, Stellar, Qtum, Bitcoin Gold, OmiseGo, NEO, Lisk, and Dogecoin. This implementation will begin in February 2018. Stay Tuned.
