消息发布时，CommonStock刚刚在种子轮中融资获得近200万美元投资，投资方包括Social Capital、Resolute VC和Studio VC。
On Tuesday, U.S.-based fintech CommonStock announced the launch of its new social investing platform for stocks and cryptocurrencies. This news comes just as CommonStock secures nearly $2 million during its seed funding round, which saw participation from Social Capital, Resolute VC, and Studio VC.
CommonStock reported it utilizes API connections to all major brokerages and crypto exchanges to allow users to more efficiently trade and monitor assets. Regardless of a person’s trading experience, CommonStock centers on financial literacy through their core social feature, Groups. The platform is available to anyone and is free to download. Users do not have to connect to a brokerage or crypto-exchange to use the platform, but it is highly encouraged in order to harness the full potential of the app. There are no trading fees associated with using CommonStock.
CommonStock added it is opening its full availability to all iOS users, with Android availability coming later this year.
