Robinhood has recently entered the software wallet market. The crypto business released the Robinhood Wallet, accompanied by smartphone software that allows users to exchange and send cryptocurrency. Furthermore, users may now view their own NFTs and crypto. Currently, over 1 million waitlisted consumers have access via an access code. Last year, the stock and cryptocurrency trading company Robinhood collaborated with Polygon to build the wallet, a self-custody, Web3 wallet. The trading platform only released a test version of its Web3 wallet for iOS. In May 2022, it was made available to the first 10,000 users who signed up for the waitlist. The wallet was first housed on the Polygon blockchain, allowing users to trade and switch cryptocurrencies while incurring no basic network fees. Johann Kerbrat, a chief technological officer of the Robinhood Crypto & Trading Platform, made the announcement public. Johann also revealed that Robinhood Wallet simplifies the complexity of Defi and web3 to make cryptocurrency more accessible to everyone. Polygon, as the preferred blockchain network for Robinhood, provides speed, scalability, scalability, cheap network costs, and a wealthy developer environment. Robinhood's partnership with Polygon began in August 2022, when the platform launched functionality for MATIC withdrawals and deposits on the proof-of-stake (PoS) chain.
The whole story of the Robinhood wallet release might be confusing because of the changes that took place in the last couple of months. Previously, the crypto platform introduced a new transfer feature on its original trading app as a “Crypto Wallet” product. The feature was launched in beta in January 2022, and it allowed Robinhood users to transfer crypto to and from the platform.

Technically, it wasn’t a crypto wallet as it’s almost the same as how users can transfer crypto to and from Kraken, Coinbase, Binance, or any other crypto trading platform. The wallet that is now officially rolled out today is considered more like Phantom, MetaMask, or the Coinbase Wallet.

The Robinhood wallet released now is a completely different product which is purposely housed in a separate standalone app to allow users to have maximum control over their crypto. The new app provides access to more advanced features, like NFT marketplaces and connecting to decentralized apps.
