The COO of Goldman Sachs, David Solomon, said that the company is already discussing the creation of full-fledged services for working with cryptocurrencies. This is reported by Bloomberg.
The company may not limit itself to one launch of the bitcoin futures trading platform. As part of this service, Goldman Sachs plans to offer its customers a flexible version of the futures.
We are clearing some futures around Bitcoin, talking about doing some other activities there, but it’s going very cautiously. We’re listening to our clients and trying to help our clients as they’re exploring those things too.
COO, Goldman Sachs
According to David Solomon, in the future the bank may launch futures trading, settlements on which will be carried out in bitcoins, and not in fiates, as it is done now. While he does not disclose what else the bank is preparing for customers.
Despite the "flexible" attitude of the bank to crypto-currency solutions, in June CEO Goldman Sachs Lloyd Blankfein said that bitcoin does not deserve his attention and he himself does not use cryptocurrencies.
In December 2017 it became known that Goldman Sachs is working on creating a trading platform for digital currencies. Its launch was scheduled for June.
