Functionality:

eToro allows its users to invest in cryptocurrencies, but doesn't have a custom interface or features for this kind of investments. One can deposit any currency and the platform automatically converts all funds to USD. Their exchange is quite fair in terms of fees on deposits. The platform offers a copy-trading feature for those who don't yet know how to trade manually.
