An August 30th Yahoo Finance blog post revealed the ability to trade cryptocurrencies directly through its platform. Currently, this feature is available through their iOS app, however, “Android, desktop and mobile web are coming soon.”
Yahoo Finance users will have the ability to trade cryptocurrencies which include bitcoin, ethereum, litecoin, and dogecoin. These new trading features were made possible through a partnership with TradeIt, a company focused on API infrastructure linking app developers with financial institutions.
“Supporting our partners with easy to integrate solutions for their apps is key to our efforts in enabling developers and publishers to meet the needs of their end users,” said Nathan Richardson, co-founder and CEO of TradeIt.
As the acceptance of cryptocurrencies continues to grow, the demand for more information and access accompanies it. Yahoo Finance began by adding over 100 cryptocurrency quote pages across all its platforms in November 2017 and, with this announcement, direct trading can now occur.
