The firm will begin with trading in just five states: California, Massachusetts, Montana, Missouri, and New Hampshire.

The firm said that it plans to provide free Bitcoin and Ethereum trading as a way to build its user base and brand.

The company blamed price volatility, slow payment times, and expensive processing fees. Stripe has since announced that it may consider adding Stellar as an alternative.
