Robinhood ends support for Solana, Polygon, Cardano amid SEC exchange crackdown

Quick Take

  • Robinhood will no longer support Solana, Polygon or Cardano after June 27, 2023 at 6:59 p.m. ET.
  • Users may transfer these coins until that deadline, after which Robinhood will sell off the user’s holdings. 
  • The move comes three days after Robinhood announced it was reviewing these three tokens in light of the SEC lawsuits against Coinbase and Binance.

Fintech trading app Robinhood has decided to delist three cryptocurrencies amid the Securities and Exchange Commission's crackdown on cryptocurrency exchanges. 

The firm will not support Solana (SOL), Polygon (MATIC) or Cardano (ADA) after June 27, 6:59 p.m. ET. Users may transfer these cryptocurrencies until this deadline. Afterward, the firm will sell the coins at market value and credit the amount into the holder's Robinhood buying power.

"No other coins are affected and your crypto is still safe on Robinhood," the firm wrote in a Friday statement.

The move comes three days after the firm's Chief Legal Compliance Officer Dan Gallagher said it was reviewing the SEC's lawsuits against crypto exchange giants Binance and Coinbase. Gallagher testified in the House Agriculture Committee that while the firm obtained a broker-dealer license for securities trading, it may not have the capacity to trade what the SEC deemed unregistered securities, such as Solana, Polygon and Cardano.
