Crypto-friendly payments company Strike has launched a dollar-cost averaging (DCA) product in the U.S., the company announced Thursday.

  • Users, except for those in Hawaii and New York, can create recurring bitcoin purchases for as little as 50 cents, with no fees. This can be done on a monthly, weekly, daily and hourly basis.
  • “Recurring purchases allow our users to deploy one of the most reliable and performant investing strategies for the world’s best performing asset,” Strike founder and CEO Jack Mallers said in a statement.
  • The initiative comes roughly seven weeks after Strike began letting its U.S. users instantly convert all or a portion of their paychecks into bitcoin.
  • Earlier this year, Mallers played a significant role in helping El Salvador adopt bitcoin as a legal tender.
