Improved market conditions have benefitted Robinhood as well as other exchanges. Coinbase netted extensive profits in Q1 2024 as well due to the crypto boom. The approval of Spot Bitcoin ETFs in January was a certain catalyst in this rise in cryptocurrency value as well as investments.

“We continued to aggressively execute on our product roadmap in Q1, leading to all-time highs for Net Deposits and Gold Subscribers,” said Vlad Tenev, CEO and Co-Founder of Robinhood. “Q2 is off to a strong start with April being our highest month of the year for Net Deposits and Gold Subscriber growth, and we’re excited to see strong interest from over 1 million customers in our Robinhood Gold Card.”

Shares of Robinhood were up 7% in post-market trading on Wednesday.
