Hummingbird launches commission-free crypto and currency trading for mobile


Berlin-New York, October 24, 2017 – Hummingbird ( launches commission-free trading for Android and iOS phones. Easy to use, Hummingbird was created by designers, engineers, and currency experts with one common goal in mind: to make global currency and cryptocurrency trading accessible, convenient, and fun for everyone. The app is now available with over 60 traditional currencies like EUR / USD as well as cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin.

John Krehbiel, Co-Founder and CEO of Hummingbird: “Our vision is to make the forex markets and trading in general accessible to everyone. Existing trading platforms are aimed at institutional traders and are loaded with technical complexity, jargon and complicated procedures, making trading inaccessible and frustrating when using a mobile device. Hummingbird solves these problems by reducing the complexity of trading to a simple interface designed entirely around the end user and by adapting the very concept of how users approach and interact with markets.

The foreign exchange market (“forex” or “FX”) is by far the largest market on the planet with over $ 5.5 trillion traded daily. Likewise, the market capitalization of the cryptocurrency has grown from around $ 4 billion to nearly $ 200 billion in the past 2 years. The global cryptocurrency market is expected to grow at an annual rate of 35.2% through 2022. Hummingbird is the first mobile-only business that allows individual traders to access both the forex and cryptocurrency markets. .
