The sign-up list for Robinhood Crypto soared above 1 million just five days after its announcement.
Over 1 million people have signed up for early access to Robinhood Crypto, just five days after the California brokerage announced it was crashing the gates of cryptocurrency trading.
Robinhood, which is best known for its zero-commission stock trading app, announced Thursday it would offer bitcoin and ethereum trading in February.
Since making the announcement, 1,000,400 people have signed up for the service.
Robinhood is rolling out the new feature in waves, launching first in five states: California, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Hampshire, and Montana.
"Crypto is going to change the world and we want to help drive that," Robinhood cofounder Baiju Bhatt told Business Insider in an interview prior to the announcement.
