Public.com said Thursday that it will add cryptocurrencies as an investment option on its service, joining a growing industry trend.
The online brokerage said it will start letting users buy, sell and hold cryptocurrencies, including bitcoin, ether, cardano and dogecoin.
Given the currencies' volatility and controversy around crypto, the company said it would provide "contextual information" about the offerings.
"The prices of cryptos can be volatile in the short term and tend to follow different patterns than stock market securities," Public said in a blog post. "We've added Volatility Reminders to crypto pages to ensure our members can make their own decisions with context."
Public said it is also "working toward" a crypto wallet: "We do not provide a crypto wallet, but we understand that this is something that some of our members may want."
Robinhood recently announced a test of crypto wallets for its users. Wallets are seen as important because they allow users to receive, hold and transfer cryptocurrencies, versus just trading them.
