If you are a trader or investor in the United States looking to buy crypto using your Etrade account, you are out of luck. Unfortunately, the Etrade App does not offer any native support for users to invest or start trading in Bitcoin or any other cryptocurrencies.
As it stands, the only way to get exposure to cryptocurrencies via the Etrade app is to invest in crypto orientated companies that are publicly listed on the stock market such as MicroStrategy, Coinbase or ARK Invest's Innovation ETF.
If you are an investor in the United States looking to buy real digital assets, we would suggest using a tailor made crypto investment platform like Coinbase.
