Introduction to Selling Crypto on Stash
Stash allows trading of cryptocurrencies 24/7/365 (with the exception of the daily maintenance window—more about that here). Unlike our stock and ETF trading windows of four times a day, you can trade crypto at any time*.
When selling your cryptocurrency holdings on Stash, the proceeds of your sale will be deposited in your Cash to Invest in your Personal Invest Portfolio (your brokerage account). You can then use those funds to purchase stocks or ETF investments in your Personal Invest Portfolio; or, you can transfer your Cash to Invest to your Stash Banking account to earn stock back from using your Stash Stock Back card, or to your external bank account.
*Stash or Apex Crypto may halt or limit trading in Crypto in order to perform regularly scheduled maintenance, or otherwise in Stash’s or Apex Crypto’s sole discretion.
How to Sell Crypto on the Stash App
Follow these steps to sell cryptocurrencies on the Stash app:
- Login to the Stash app.
- Tap Invest at the bottom of the screen.
- Tap Personal portfolio1.
- Scroll down to your holdings and tap on the coin you want to sell.
- Tap Sell.
- Tap Continue.
- Enter the dollar amount you want to sell and tap Continue.
- Review the transaction details and tap Sell. Your funds will be available in your Cash to Invest in your brokerage account immediately.
- You will not be able to use that Cash to Invest to buy additional coins, as purchases can only be made from your Stash banking account or an external bank account. You can use that Cash to Invest to buy other securities in your Personal Invest Portfolio. You can also transfer that Cash to Invest to your Stash banking account or to your external bank account. Please note, if you wish to purchase another crypto coin and want to use crypto sale proceeds to purchase a coin, appropriate seasoning rules may apply.
- Crypto purchases and sales have a minimum limit of $1.25 (or your entire portfolio if you have less than $1.25). There is an additional trading fee related to purchasing and selling crypto that is not part of our Stash subscription fee. For more information on fees, go to this section.

Crypto and Fees
There is a small fee on each crypto sale to cover the transaction.:
- Growth: 1% per transaction
- Plus: 0.8% per transaction
The Transaction Fee will be deducted from the total dollar amount of each crypto transaction. This transaction fee covers execution, custodial, and account maintenance costs in connection with your crypto account and is not part of our Stash Subscription fee. The Crypto Transaction Fee for any transaction to sell your entire position in a specific Crypto Asset will be rounded to the nearest penny corresponding to your applicable fee amount.
