The trading app tapped Polygon for its “scalability, speed, low network fees, and robust developer ecosystem,” a Robinhood representative said.

Robinhood announced the launch of its beta Web3 wallet, giving 10,000 waitlisted customers the ability to participate in the wallet’s testing phase.

The application, which is solely available on Apple mobile devices, will let users trade crypto with reportedly “no network fees,” as well as earn yield by connecting with other decentralized applications (dApps).

The beta version will not support NFT trading or marketplace activities, with this feature slated for the wallet’s final rollout. 

Robinhood said that the decision to select Polygon as their exclusive blockchain partner centered around the network's “scalability, speed, low network fees, and robust developer ecosystem.” 

A wallet worth the wait. Beta testing is now live for 10K customers from the waitlist, with @0xPolygon as the first blockchain supported.

The firm noted that they “will eventually be[come] a multichain wallet that supports a wide number of blockchains.

Robinhood’s slow roll-out

Robinhood first launched the beta version of its crypto wallet in January this year at the pinnacle of the crypto bull market hysteria. This inaugural version lets 1,000 users trade popular assets Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Dogecoin, yet limited withdrawal totals to just $2,999.

In May, the company teased the development of its Web3 wallet.

Speaking with Decrypt at the time, Robinhood was tight-lipped on the subject of whether Ethereum’s transition to proof-of-stake (PoS) consensus would affect its inclusion with an anonymous spokesperson stating that: “There’s multiple solutions to deliver on that vision, and we’re excited to show everyone how we’re going to do it.”

Robinhood and Polygon have yet to respond to Decrypt's request for comment.
