TD Ameritrade is the U.S.-based brokerage firm based with a major trading center in St Louis, Missouri.

In 2018, TD Ameritrade placed the very first advertisement inserted within the bitcoin blockchain.
Previously, TD Ameritrade invested an unspecified amount in the ErisX regulated derivatives stock exchange.
Experts believe ErisX has may become a serious competitor to Bakkt. One of the main news this spring was the intercontinental exchange ICE, the operator of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), announcing the launch of a crypto exchange Bakkt.
Earlier, crypto-related startup Ripple announced a partnership with UAE Exchange company Finablr. It’s expected the blockchain service will go live by Q1, 2019 with one or two Asian banks.
