Goldman Sachs reveals a crypto trading group
According to the latest reports from Reuters, Goldman Sachs Group Inc. revealed new details on the crypto trading group, says a staff memo that’s been reportedly seen by Reuters.
The trading group was mentioned by Reuters back in March, and it’s been buying and selling Bitcoin futures on CME Group and non-deliverable forwards, says the memo.
Yahoo Finance notes that the announcement is further evidence that Wall Street is accepting and adopting the digital currency.
The notes also reveal that this follows rival bank Morgan Stanley’s move to offer its wealth management clients access to bitcoin funds in recent months.
“The two derivatives the trading group is handling allow investors to take a view on bitcoin’s future price. The contracts are settled in cash, and Goldman does not have to deal with the physical asset, which it “is not in a position to trade,” according to the memo,” cites Yahoo Finance.
