Abra, an all-in-one cryptocurrency wallet and trading platform, is currently offering investors $25 in Bitcoin (BTC) for new investments in its Bitwise 10 Index (BIT10).

The BIT10 Index allows Abra users to gain exposure to around 85% of the crypto market with a single investment vehicle. It is a market-weighted derivative product that tracks the combined price action of top coins, including Bitcoin, Ethereum (ETH), XRP (XRP) and EOS (EOS).

While the $25 may be a welcomed amount for most retail investors, the email provided to Abra users revealed that new BIT10 investors must exchange a minimum of $1,000 from any currency into BIT10 during the promotion period. This equates to a roughly 2.5% cashback reward.

Despite the relatively low amounts, Abra’s move further highlights the growing competition among retail crypto exchanges, as they go tit-for-tat launching new features in an effort to grab market share prior to the next wave of user adoption.

Most recently, Voyager, a commission-free crypto trading app, announced a similar $25 sign-up bonus for U.S. residents who pre-register for the platform — with no spending requirement.
