(Reuters) – Robinhood Markets Inc is rolling out crypto wallets to a 1,000 users, allowing them to send and receive cryptocurrencies through their brokerage accounts, the company said in a blog post on Thursday.
The new feature also connects holders of the digital asset to the blockchain ecosystem.
Its customers have long asked for crypto wallets, which allow broader participation in blockchain-based ecosystems, such as buying virtual assets like non-fungible tokens (NTFs) on the Ethereum network.
The company is slated to report fourth-quarter earnings on Jan. 27.
