Robinhood is a trading platform that allows users to buy and sell cryptocurrency. Technically, Robinhood is a cryptocurrency broker that allows users to transact, purchase and store altcoins and Bitcoin (BTC).
Unlike most exchanges, users cannot withdraw their cryptocurrencies from their Robinhood accounts. Instead, they need to sell their coins or tokens and transfer the proceeds from the sale to an external account. The platform offers coins such as Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and Dogecoin (DOGE) and accepts USD fiat currency. In addition to these cryptocurrencies, users can purchase stock, options and exchange-traded funds (ETF) on Robinhood.
Robinhood is one of the most popular crypto platforms due to its user-friendly interface. Also, there are no charges for opening an account, trading or transferring cryptocurrency out of Robinhood. The company derives its income from transaction-based sources, including payments for order flow.
