Taking to Twitter, Chennapragada tweeted,

“Super pumped to announce on the #Bitcoin2022 stage that @RobinhoodApp has rolled out wallets access to the nearly 2 million people on the WenWallets waitlist.”

According to the tweet, there were some restrictions. Users in Hawaii, New York, and Nevada are unable to access crypto wallets due to local regulations.

Chennapragada added,

“We are also working to add the ability to transact on the Bitcoin Lightning Network, so customers can send & receive BTC in seconds, for pennies instead of dollars.”

At the time of writing, Robinhood supports the buying, selling, and real-time market data for Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Bitcoin SV (BSV), Dogecoin (DOGE), Ethereum (ETH), Ethereum Classic (ETC), and Litecoin (LTC).
