Enable Crypto Trading

Are you ready to start trading cryptocurrencies? Well, before you get started, you’ll need to enable cryptocurrency trading on your account. When you enable cryptocurrency trading, it will create an account (hot wallet) at Zero Hash–our cryptocurrency custodian. Please follow the four steps below.

Individual cash or margin accounts can enable cryptocurrency trading. We are working with our Cryptocurrency provider to expand trading to other account types (such as IRAs, joint, and entities). Generally, you can enable Cryptocurrency trading for multiple accounts.*
