At the time, Robinhood Crypto was available in 10 states. Since then, crypto trading has been opened up across Utah, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Indiana, New Jersey and Texas.

The company’s co-founder and co-CEO Baiju Bhatt previously said he expects Robinhood Crypto to be able to cover the entire U.S. by the end of 2018 as part of a plan to become one of the largest cryptocurrency platforms.
