Instant Access to Funds

If you have a Robinhood Instant account, you will typically get instant access to your funds up to $1,000 to trade cryptocurrency.

If applicable, remaining funds not instantly available will land in your account after normal settlement times.

If you have a Robinhood Gold account, you’ll have instant access to your funds up to your Gold tier amount, and any additional funds will land in your account after normal settlement times.

For Robinhood Crypto, funds from stock, ETF, and options sales become available for buying within 3 business days. However, limited cash deposits and all proceeds from cryptocurrency sales are generally available to instant accounts immediately. See Crypto Buying Power on our Cryptocurrency Investing page for more details.

Please note: Robinhood Crypto may limit access to instant deposits at any time. We’ll communicate with affected customers if and when we make updates to instant deposit availability.

Keep in mind

You can’t use Gold Buying Power to purchase cryptocurrencies on Robinhood Crypto.
