Id rather they did one thing really well rather than add crypto/bitcoin. There are so many places to buy bitcoin from already. Adding something like greyscale bitcoin trust or mining stocks and then bitcoin etfs in the future, all make sense. Becoming a crypto exchange is somewhat diverting focus away from becoming a great stockbroker. I say this as someone who buys crypto and holds it on other platforms. I dont see the point in freetrade allocating resources to it, would rather see them increase their stock universe.
Things i would love:
- Self invested JISA would be a game changer.
- ability to hold usd for us stocks
- investment pies for lazy dca’ing my portfolio
- getting stocks listed faster, especially growth and innovation stocks like nndm is shocking to not have for me, been wanting it for months.
- web interface
I know im repeating stuff here, these make a lot of sense to me.
Not sure about the lisa? I can get a lisa elsewhere, I hope freetrade keeps its focus on doing the few things it does well/better and unique offerings rather than trying to be a financial catch-all and diluting its resources/focus.
