Blockchain startup Circle is adding the privacy-focused cryptocurrency monero to its Invest application, the company announced Monday.

Just one week after the payment platform announced it was adding zcash to its trading app, the company added monero, according to a blog post. As with the other tokens available on the app, users will be able to purchase or invest the cryptocurrency.

In addition to the privacy coins, Circle Invest offers bitcoin, bitcoin cash, ethereum, ethereum classic and litecoin.

In the post, Invest senior product manager Rachel Mayer wrote:

"Last week, we welcomed zcash to the coin family on Circle Invest. Today, we continue to grow our coin collection by supporting monero as our new listed crypto asset. This brings our investable crypto assets to a total of 7 coins, making Circle Invest one of the only platforms you can invest instantly and seamlessly in the widest breadth of coins by using your bank account."

Future updates will include information on "how we think about adding assets into our products" and more new features, the post concluded.

The Invest app is a digital investment product that features zero commissions, as previously reported. While a preview indicated Ripple's XRP might be a supported cryptocurrency, so far it has not made it onto the platform.

A Circle Invest executive did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
