Market capitalizations for each of their native tokens exceed $1 billion.

They are the most recent cryptocurrency assets to be introduced to Robinhood, which claims to have 18.7 million active monthly users.

This year, the company added several cryptos, including Polygon, Solana, and Avalanche.

The marketplace now offers a total of 19 crypto assets after today's inclusion.

In the form of USD Coin USDC/USD, Robinhood also listed its first stablecoin last month. With a test version made available to about 10,000 customers last month, Robinhood is releasing its own cryptocurrency wallet as part of another effort to court the market for crypto traders.

The development comes at a time when Robinhood's competitors are also looking at expanding their footprints in the crypto industry.
