Payments startup Circle has launched the full version of its crypto investment app.
One of the features going live on Tuesday is the "Buy the Market" tool, which is geared toward newer users, Circle senior product manager Rachel Mayer told CoinDesk.
"'Buy the Market' is the culmination of all we've been doing since the soft launch," she said, going on to explain:
"The focus is the market," Mayer added.
Circle Invest will mark assets up by 1 percent when users buy or sell a particular cryptocurrency, but will not charge any fixed fees on top. This differs from existing trading platforms, which she said charge both a markup and trading fees.
