In the past week, Robinhood launched its self-custody, Web3 wallet beta called ''Robinhood wallet'' to 10,000 iOS customers who joined the waitlist back in May. The standalone app supports Polygon as its first blockchain network.

While the Robinhood Wallet is launching exclusively with Polygon, in the long run, it will be a multichain wallet that will support a wide variety of blockchains. Robinhood also recently rolled out support for deposits and withdrawals on the Polygon PoS network so that customers can purchase its native MATIC token on the Robinhood app and transfer it over to their self-custody wallet.
