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