Residents of the US state of Illinois can now use Robinhood to trade crypto

The popular online trading platform Robinhood tweeted out to their 122K followers that they have made crypto trading available in the US state, Illinois, making it the 29th state in the US to get the commission-free trading service.

As promised, the California-based Robinhood Crypto has been steadily adding states where the service is available. Currently investors can buy and sell Bitcoin,  Ethereum, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, dogecoin, and ethereum classic in 29 states, which include California, New Jersey, Florida, and now recently added, the state of Illinois.

In October the trading app launched in 5 states, while they launched in another 2 states during the month of November, being North Dakota and South Dakota.

Robinhood's expansion into crypto is aimed at making trading cryptocurrencies easier and more accessible to investors.

Many crypto traders shared their enthusiasm on Twitter and Reddit.
