The crypto custodial and trading services will be provided by Fidelity Digital Assets, a subsidiary of Fidelity Investments.

Users will be able to trade with as little as $1. While trades with Fidelity Crypto will be commission-free, the company said it will factor in a 1% spread into every trade execution price.

Fidelity told CNBC Thursday:

A meaningful portion of Fidelity customers are already interested in and own crypto. We are providing them with tools to support their choice, so they can benefit from Fidelity’s education, research, and technology.

Fidelity Digital Assets has been offering bitcoin (BTC) services to institutional investors since 2018. The firm recently added ether (ETH) trading.
