The Bank of America Getting Involved in Crypto
The job opening by the bank shows that it is highly interested in the blockchain industry and therefore seeks to improve its blockchain technological arm.
Following the trend of crypto in 2021, the BoA released an announcement to research crypto and digital assets. The Bank of America created a digital currency research team for the first time, under the direction of Alkesh Shah, as the hot ecosystem continues to gain traction among all classes of investors.
In September the Bank of America talked about the decision of the Binance exchange platform to convert all its customers’ existing balances and future deposits of three stablecoins into its own native Binance USD ( BUSD). In its research paper, the bank noted that while Binance's decision may only have a little short-term financial impact on the exchange, it may have more significant long-term effects.
BoA strategists recently hinted that the recent shift in Bitcoin is an indication that it is becoming a safe haven in relation to other digital assets.
