Crypto and Traditional Financial Services - Worlds Apart or One World?


As the number of crypto-related businesses multipies and a growing number of individuals hold cryptocurrencies, saying “we don’t bank crypto" is no longer a viable, risk-based compliance approach. In this session, experts discuss how to approach existing and prospective customers engaged in crypto activities. While we can’t answer whether your institution should bank crypto companies, presenters will discuss their own experiences working with banks that have done just that, as well as give insights from the crypto companies that have made it through the onboarding process. We'll also reveal how financial institutions already have exposure to the crypto world - whether they know it or not - and what they can do about it.
