US Banking Giant Wells Fargo Plans To Offer Crypto Services To Wealthy Customers

The mass adoption of Bitcoin is going great these days amidst the massive sell-off that took place in the crypto market.

This has been one of the most important goals that the crypto industry set, and things are going great.

It’s been just revealed that the fourth-largest bank in the United States is embracing crypto.

Wells Fargo announced this month that it would offer to select clients an actively managed crypto strategy.

Cryptos evolved into a viable investment class

In a report that’s called The Investment Rationale for Cryptocurrencies, the Wells Fargo Investment Institute (WFII) says cryptos have evolved into a viable investment class.

“WFII believes that crypto-currencies have gained stability and viability as assets, but the risks lead us to favor investment exposure only for qualified investors, and even then through professionally managed funds.”

The report also mentioned the increasingly friendly regulatory waters for banks wishing to custody digital assets for their clients.

“Banks received regulatory permission to custody cryptocurrencies, and the investment industry and regulators took additional steps to extend a legal and oversight framework that should help solidify cryptocurrencies as investable assets.”

Wells Fargo is just one of the important names that are supporting BTC and crypto these days. Other names include PayPal, Revolut, MicroStrategy and more.
