Metropolitan Bank is one of the most cryptocurrency-friendly banks in the industry today. According to a new report from Coindesk.com, Metropolitan Bank believes cryptocurrency businesses are “pioneers”. The bank already handles millions for cryptocurrency users – and now they want to expand even further.
Coindesk interviewed the New York-based bank’s chief technology officer Nick Rosenberg, who said,
“We’re certainly very interested in growing this vertical. We’ve learned that it’s a serious industry. there are some very smart people involved. There are some very interesting ideas coming out that could really change the way people do business.”
Instead of seeing cryptocurrency businesses and users as pariahs – like most other banks – Metropolitan Bank has taken a different approach by embracing crypto users as pioneers.
Sure, you can find plenty of examples of other banks implementing blockchain technology– or at least researching blockchain. Metropolitan, however, is one of the few major banks courting cryptocurrency users enthusiastically.
