As 2021 draws to a close, online broker eToro is taking its time to reflect on its achievements throughout the year.
Early on in the year, eToro reached a huge milestone: celebrating its record number of users on the platform – an astonishing 20 million. The company has grown since then (by an extra few million).
As eToro grew immensely in its capacity as a platform, it also massively expanded the number of assets it offers:
- Cryptoassets: 27
- Stocks: 726
- IPOs: 32
- ETFs: 113
- That is a total of 898 asset additions.
The eToro team has also brought new features and updates to traders. The broker had an extreme makeover with the release of the new user interface (UI) and user experience (UX) from Sep – Oct.
The eToro Money Debit Card, which was a highly awaited feature, was launched as a beta and officially launched for eToro users in the UK, at the beginning of December. The broker promises that the eToro Money Debit Card will be rolled out to more countries in the EU very soon!
A few weeks ago, eToro also reduced the minimum trade sizes on stock, ETF, and crypto positions worldwide. About four months ago, eToro reduced the minimum first-time deposit (FTD) amount to $50 in select countries and, more recently, to $10 in the UK and the USA.
This year, one of eToro’s main priorities and objectives was to connect itself to its community, therefore, it launched many projects in order to attain this goal. These includes “Invest With Her”. The community was built for women on eToro to take part in the “Invest with Her” program, to get a deeper view of investing with other women. It offers an exciting opportunity to learn from eToro experts, make new friends, and support other women.
