FEATURING: Patrick Sells, head of banking solutions for NYDIG
Bitcoin is taking another step toward mainstream adoption, as customers of some U.S. banks will soon be able to buy, hold and sell bitcoin through their existing accounts.
According to research by Cornerstone Advisors, 60% of crypto owners would use their bank to invest in cryptocurrencies. Even though interest from traditional banking firms is still rather low, is there an opportunity being missed at a time when money and accounts are flowing into fintech firms globally?
We are very fortunate to have Patrick Sells, head of banking solutions for NYDIG, a leading technology and financial services firm dedicated to Bitcoin on the Banking Transformed podcast. Sells discusses the opportunities and challenges of traditional banks offering integrated Bitcoin solutions.
The way we move money is changing. We want to send money in real-time — to the other side of the world. We want everything in one place, integrated, seamless and on our devices. Embedded, fast, standardized, frictionless and secure.
The Financial Futures podcast by FIS explores fintech innovation and the trends that are already transforming the way the world pays, banks and invests…across the globe.
