Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein said in interview to Bloomberg that he isn't comfortable with bitcoin, but he is open to this cryptocurrency.

Bloomberg talked with mr. Blankfein at Goldman Sachs Sustainable Finance Innovation Forum in New York. CEO said the he has a "level of discomfort" over bitcoin as he has with anything new. 

I’ve learned over the years that there’s a lot of things that workout pretty well that I don't love. Maybe in the new world, something gets backed by consensus ... If we went into the future and bitcoins were successful, I would be able to explain how it's a natural evolution of money.

Mr. Blankfein also noted that he is "still thinking about bitcoin" and that he is not "endorsing or rejecting" .

In May, the crypto-currency blockchain start-up Circle attracted 30% more institutional investors than in April. The company's performance has increased despite the fact that the rate of bitcoin for the same period fell by about 20%. This is reported by CNBC.

As the company's CEO Jeremy Allair said, Circle also recorded a x15 increase in the number of transactions compared to the same period last year.

According to him, starting from this week all trading operations on the platform will be automated.

Major institutional investors don't go through a telephone broker. They go through an electronic interface. We're maturing this into a more traditional product; it's much faster and a more flexible way to trade.
