FTT is the native utility token used across the broader FTX ecosystem and can be used for the reduction of trading fees or can serve as collateral against future positions.

FTX.US opening of stock trading to users as a catalyst for growth

FTX.US opened stock trading to users in all 50 American states, according to a statement by President Brett Harrison initially posted on Twitter. 

What this means is that the cryptocurrency exchange now allows users to trade hundreds of stocks and exchange-traded funds online or through the FTX.US Pro mobile application.

The U.S. unit of the FTX exchange piloted this feature to a select group of customers back in May. However, FTX said that it would not charge fees or monetize trades in a way as Robinhood (HOOD) does, which has been historically criticized for its business model.

In June, FTX.US acquired stock clearing company Embed Financial Technologies as a means of providing its application programming interface (API) and brokerage services on the platform.
