Online trading app Public.com today announces expansion to its its crypto lineup. Public is adding four new crypto assets to its offering:
- Decentraland, $MANA
- Cosmos, $ATOM
- Fantom, $FTM
- The Graph, $GRT
The enrichment of the offering is announced less than a month after Public.com made 10 crypto-assets, such as Solana and Uniswap, available to trade. These tokens are added to a lineup of cryptos which includes: Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), Cardano (ADA), Dogecoin (DOGE), Litecoin (LTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Stellar (XLM), Ethereum Classic (ETC), Dash (DASH), and Zcash (ZEC).
Public.com launched crypto trading in October 2021. Public members are able to buy, sell, and hold crypto assets in the same app they use to manage their stock market portfolios.
All Public.com members can find the cryptos the app offers via the Explore tab and will be able to see relevant information about each, add to Watchlist, and invest with as little as $1 when the feature is available to them.
Crypto holdings appear in the same section as your stock market portfolio, so you can see the full view of your investments on Public in one place. You can drag cryptos you own to your Long-Term Portfolio just as you would stock market investments you plan to hold onto for longer than one year.
Crypto investors on Public can also set Limit Orders for buying and selling. These self-directed parameters can help you buy and sell crypto at a specific price you set.
With so many investors interested in learning about crypto, Public has included contextual information in its product to help educate its members on the journey.
The prices of cryptos can be volatile in the short term and tend to follow different patterns than stock market securities. The app has added Volatility Reminders to crypto pages to ensure its members can make their own decisions with context. Volatility Reminders are an extension of the Safety Labels feature, which flag potentially risky stocks as per the SEC. This includes micro-cap stocks, leveraged ETFs, bankrupt companies, and highly volatile meme stocks.
Since cryptos are evaluated differently than stock market investments, Public has included deeper information on each crypto it offers. Tap into a crypto page to browse informational slideshows that share the founding story and thesis, recent headlines, and other pertinent information.
