Litecoin and bitcoin are new additions to robinhood investing app
U.S.-based mobile stock trading app Robinhood has added two new cryptocurrencies to its no-fee trading service.
The company said in an announcement on Thursday that litecoin and bitcoin cash have been added for Robinhood Crypto users following strong demand from customers for crypto assets beyond the current options of bitcoin and ethereum.
As part of the announcement, Robinhood also claimed it now has over 5 million users on the platform following expansion of its crypto trading service to 17 U.S. states.
Since then, crypto trading has been opened up across Utah, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Indiana, New Jersey and Texas.
As previously reported by CoinDesk, Robinhood launched the crypto trading service in February, offering bitcoin and ethereum trading pairs in five states.
