FTX Stocks aims to offer investors a full suite of asset class options in a one-stop investment shop. As part of a statement, FTX U.S. President Brett Harrison outlined: 

“With the launch of FTX Stocks, we have created a single integrated platform for retail investors to easily trade crypto, NFTs, and traditional stock offerings.” 

The beta launch of FTX Stocks will be made available to select U.S. customers, who will be chosen from a waitlist. FTX further disclosed that all trades on FTX Stocks will be free. 

The exchange will also charge no fees for brokerage accounts, and no minimum balances will be required to operate an account. 

On the other hand, the platform will require its users to fund their accounts with stablecoins like Circle’s USDC, Binance’s Binance USD (BUSD), and Tether’s hugely popular USDT.
