Some of the more prominent investors include Kleiner Perkins, Iconiq Capital,  Capital G , and Sequoia Capital.   That Robinhood app has over 4 million users who are using the crypto specific platform since February. It’s been open to 10 US states so far and is expected to expand even more within the upcoming months. CEO Baaiju Bhatt stated in an interview with Fortune that the company plans on offering 16 different cryptocurrencies and a more favorable cost structure which includes no commissions. This would be a first of its kind as compared to existing cryptocurrency exchanges.

ICE, the parent company of the New York Stock Exchange is also planning to offer Bitcoin swap contracts which can be settled for real BTC.
