Robinhood’s Foray into Crypto

Robinhood is an American financial services company headquartered in Menlo Park, Califonia. It facilitates commission-free trades of stocks, exchange-traded funds (ETFs), and cryptocurrencies via a mobile app launched in March 2015.

The company’s revenue comes from three main sources, including interest earned on customers’ cash balances, selling order information to high-frequency traders, and margin lending.

In 2018, Robinhood started to incorporate crypto assets. It started by enabling its users to trade Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), and a number of other digital currencies.

In July 2018, the popular investing app added support for the largest meme token in the market, Dogecoin (DOGE), followed by Solana (SOL), Shiba Inu (SHIB), Polygon (MATIC), and Chainlink (LINK). The company had to wait for three before adding support for more digital assets.

Earlier this year, the financial services company started rolling out crypto wallets, enabling its users to withdraw digital currencies from exchanges.

However, the shares of the company have started to tank due to a drop in revenue after losing a number of active users.
