Also, I'm not sure of your age, however, most firms will require a co-signer if you are under the age of 18. This is because a brokerage account is a contract between you and the firm and most states require someone to be 18 in order to enter into a contract on their own.
Finally, do your homework and don't get caught up in a lot of hype. Understand that RISK is an important component of investing. When markets are going up, everyone looks like a genius. How will you feel about your investments when the markets will go down? Good luck, have fun, but remember what I have said.
Well first off it’s good that you’re thinking about investing at a young age! The main thing is what you are investing in, not the apps to invest with! I don’t invest with crypto. So I won’t advise you on that. I will say one of the best things you can do is start a Roth IRA. There is no smarter long-term investment out there. Your investments grow tax-free and are not taxed when you take the money out.
Two websites to look at. Vanguard and Fidelity mutual funds. Take a look at their funds do some research. Then you’ll get a better idea of what you want to invest in for the long term. Remember knowledge is power!
Note I also do not invest in crypto so cannot provide advice on platforms or investments for crypto.
Such a great question, and I want to commend you on thinking about this early in life.

With this platforms you can buy stock, bonds, crypto, ETFs, etc. Keep in mind to always read financial news and do research before you invest. I recommend you take some free courses and readings (in case you haven't) in order to learn more and confidence at investing.
