• One month after the launch of the digital asset, Public.com expands its crypto offering

  • One month after its initial launch, the New York-based investment platform Public.com has expanded its crypto offering. Previously, the platform allowed users to trade ten different currencies, including ether (ETH), bitcoin (BTC), and Dogecoin (DOGE).

    Today’s announcement includes DeFi coins such as Uniswap (UNI) and SushiSwap (SUSHI), as well as Ether-challenger Solana (SOL). Shiba Inu ($SHIB), the current memecoin, was also added two weeks ago, bringing Public.com’s coin count to 21.

    This increased emphasis on cryptocurrency will complement the investment platform’s existing offerings, which include everything from themed investment plans to traditional stocks and ETFs.

    The announcement comes on the heels of a recent surge in neobroker platforms expanding into crypto investment services. Germany’s Trade Republic entered the crypto trading market in April. ULTCOIN365 recently revealed that AI-investment app Plum is also planning a crypto asset launch in mid-2022.

    Not only are brokers getting into the crypto game, but neobanks like N26 and Revolut are expanding their verticals into crypto investment, and BNPL lenders like Afterpay are following suit.
