Yahoo Finance, has just launched Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH) and Litecoin (LTC) trading on its popular finance platform.
Yahoo Finance’s latest crypto development was quietly implemented and much the crypto community are expressing that this is another important step toward mainstream crypto adoption. There was no official announcement from Yahoo, so the exact time and date of the feature launch remain unknown.
Trading appears to be only available in the US and operates through US brokerages, much the same as trading stocks currently works on the platform. Founder and partner at Morgan Creek Digital, Anthony Pompliano was one of the first to notice and tell the world with his recent tweet:
You can now buy Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin on Yahoo Finance.
THE VIRUS IS SPREADING 🚀

At this stage only Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH) and Litecoin (LTC) have the Yahoo Finance “buy” and “sell” trading integrations, while other emerging cryptocurrencies like EOS (EOS) and Cardano (ADA) have information pages and charts but don’t yet have trading integrated. The Japanese arm of internet giant Yahoo, had previously said in March 2018 that it has plans to open a cryptocurrency exchange by “April 2019 or later”.
This development reinforces how serious Yahoo are about crypto.
BTC continues to trade around the $7,000 level, having broke the $7k level two days ago on August 28th 2018. At press time, Bitcoin is now trading at $7,024.
