As shared by Barry Silbert, DCG (Grayscale parent) founder, Robinhood has added Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) and Grayscale Ethereum Trust (ETHE) to its list of assets available for trading on its platform.
Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) is still one of the most popular publicly traded Bitcoin funds. Since its inception as the Bitcoin Investment Trust in 2013, GBTC has grown to manage over $25 billion in total assets and has attracted over 100 institutional investors.
Grayscale Ethereum Trust (ETHE) is entirely and passively invested in ETH, allowing investors to acquire exposure to ETH in the form of securities while avoiding the difficulties of directly purchasing, storing and safeguarding ETH.

The same month, Robinhood began rolling out crypto wallets to the more than two million people on its waiting list, and it recently completed deployment to all customers.
