Small European Banks See an Opportunity in Cryptocurrencies

While some of Europe’s biggest banks will not allow clients to buy cryptocurrencies with credit cards or advise on investing in the market, the smaller banks see an opportunity; Vontobel, Falcon Bank and Bank Frick have all agreed to handle cryptocurrency investments on behalf of clients; “There are risks involved but there are also really big opportunities,” Edi Wögerer, chief executive of Bank Frick, told the Financial Times; some of the world biggest banks have said the market is too risky with volatile prices and money laundering concerns; with the potential for more regulation these smaller banks are looking to already stake a place in the market before the bigger firms feel comfortable enough to get involved.
