The number of new registrations of mobile application users for trading with traditional financial assets and Robinhood cryptocurrency exceeded 800 thousand.
About this, in particular, said in his Twitter the famous financial analyst and trader Brian Kelly:
“807,000 people have singed up for @RobinhoodApp crypto trading !!!
Companies might want to rethink the ban on employees trading crypto …”
Kelly also urged the company to reconsider the decision regarding the prohibition of cryptotrading for its employees.
Information about the significant interest in the new option in the Robinhood application was also confirmed by Spencer Bogart, Managing Director and Head of Research at Blockchain Capital.
By now, the users of the application are still able to set up notifications and monitor prices for Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, Ripple, Ethereum Classic, Zcash, Monero, Dash, Stellar, Qtum, Bitcoin Gold, OmiseGo, NEO, Lisk and Dogecoin. Along with the crypto currency, Robinhood will also feature traditional securities, ETFs and options.
First residents of California, Massachusetts, Missouri, Montana and New Hampshire can begin trading cryptocurrencies with the help of Robinhood. As assured in the company, in the future, the capabilities of the application will be available to residents of various parts of the world.
Recall, a few days ago the developers of the Robinhood application announced the possibility of making transactions with cryptocurrencies.
