TradeStation Crypto, a subsidiary of TradeStation Group, announced today that residents in Connecticut, North Carolina, North Dakota, Vermont, Washington D.C. and Wyoming may now apply for an account to trade cryptocurrencies on TradeStation Crypto’s brokerage platform.
Traders can now trade Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC) and XRP in those states.
Other supported crypto coins and approved territories are planned to be added to TradeStation Crypto in the future, according to the firm.
“This month we connected to ErisX to help improve our customers’ view of prices and access to deeper liquidity,” said James Putra, director of product strategy at TradeStation Crypto.
“We’re looking forward to expanding even further to give more traders simplified access to the crypto markets.”
TradeStation Crypto uses the true online brokerage model that self-directed traders have come to expect for other asset classes, including equities, options and futures.
Instead of being a crypto exchange, TradeStation Crypto aggregates multiple pools of liquidity in a consolidated market data feed combined with an intelligent order-routing system to give its customers better visibility and trade execution.
TradeStation’s clients have access to the tools needed to design, test, optimize, monitor and automate custom trading strategies. It also provides a vast array of educational offerings to help beginning and advanced clients learn online trading and investing skills to help them meet their trading and investment objectives.
