Who is eligible to trade crypto?

Any user who already has a brokerage account through the Plynk app can apply for a crypto account offered by Paxos. Paxos may choose to approve or deny your crypto account.

Unfortunately, if you have been notified by the IRS that you are subject to backup withholding, you are not eligible to open a crypto account with Paxos.

You must be physically located in the 50 United States, its territories, or the District of Columbia to place trades with Paxos.

Who is Paxos?

The Plynk app offers crypto trading through Paxos Trust Company ("Paxos"), a New York State-Chartered limited liability trust company (NMLS #1766787). Paxos performs all crypto-related trades through the Plynk app and serves as your "custodian" for all crypto assets.

If you choose to open a crypto account through the Plynk app, you agree to let Plynk provide your information to Paxos to create an account in your name. You will be required to sign Paxos' Customer Terms and Conditions.

Are there any fees on crypto trades?

Yes. For each crypto trade $100 or under, there is a minimum fee of $0.50. For each crypto trade above $100, there’s a 0.5% fee.

Crypto fees are added to the amount of your crypto trade. For example, if you buy $10 worth of crypto, the total amount you’d pay would be $10.50 with fees. If you buy $200 worth of crypto, the total amount you’d pay would be $201.00 with fees.

There are no added spreads, markups, or custody fees.
