Sky News reported not too long ago that the British banking giant Barclays is buying a stake in a Europe-based crypto asset custody company.

This is a firm aiming to provide a secure infrastructure for institutions looking to invest in crypto.
According to the report, Barclays is taking part in Copper’s latest funding round, which is expected to be finalized in the coming days.
Late last year, Copper was eyeing a valuation of at least $3 billion.
As noted by the online publication the Daily Hodl, it’s also important to note the fact that Copper is incorporated in Switzerland and has offices in London, New York, Singapore, Dubai and Zurich.
The crypto custody firm is backed by tech investment firm Target Global and early-stage venture capital firm MMC Ventures.
