Robinhood


Robinhood is a great option for buying cryptocurrency directly. You’ll also get to take advantage of Robinhood’s wildly popular trading commissions: $0 per trade, or commission-free, though you’ll still be paying a built-in spread markup on any trades. And if you’re into more than just cryptocurrency, you can stick around for stock and ETF trades for the same low price. Robinhood’s slick app makes trading so easy, though those looking for a full-featured trading experience will be disappointed.

Interactive Brokers

 

Interactive Brokers lets you trade four cryptocurrencies directly, including Bitcoin and Ethereum, for one of the lowest commissions in the market. Customers can also access 24/7 crypto trading through an associated app with Paxos Trust Company. Plus, IB allows you to buy Bitcoin and Ethereum futures rather than owning the currencies directly. And in this broker’s case, you can buy Bitcoin futures on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, with contracts costing $5 at five coins per contract or Ethereum contracts for $3 at 50 coins per contract. In addition, Interactive Brokers brings its full suite of investment offerings, so you can buy almost anything that trades on an exchange.

Webull

 

Though Webull may be less known than its rival commission-free trading app Robinhood, it provides investors with a solid offering that includes cryptocurrency trading. While you won’t pay commissions on crypto trades (or stocks and ETFs), Webull does charge a spread markup of 100 basis points (1 percent of the price) on either side of a trade. Several cryptocurrencies are available for trading, including Bitcoin, Ethereum and Cardano. Charting tools and an impressive mobile app make Webull a broker worth considering.

TradeStation

 

Traders have a couple options at this broker, which has rolled out direct currency trading via TradeStation Crypto, with commission-based pricing for traders. Pricing is based on your 30-day crypto trading volume and whether your order is directly marketable. Normally pricing ranges from 0.025 percent of your order to 0.6 percent. Traders can also buy and sell Bitcoin futures as well as take advantage of substantial volume trading discounts.

Binance.US

 

Binanca is a specialized trading platform that allows you to buy and sell digital currencies, including the largest such as Bitcoin and Ethereum, but also dozens of other much smaller coins, too. In total, you’ll have access to around 130 cryptocurrencies. The commission structure at Binance is low and only gets cheaper the more you trade. Trading fees start at 0.45 percent of your trade value (i.e., $45 for every $10,000 traded) and fall from there, depending on your trading volume over the prior 30 days.

 

Binance’s finances came under scrutiny in 2022 after the collapse of FTX. The accounting firm used by Binance to verify its reserves paused its work for all crypto clients and the Securities and Exchange Commission said investors should be wary of crypto firm audits. None of the big four accounting firms are willing to work with Binance, according to the Wall Street Journal.
