posted 29 days ago
Dutch bank ABN AMRO has unveiled cryptocurrency storage facilities which will see its clients able to deposit Bitcoin alongside fiat currency. In what appears to be a marked change of stance on the sector, officials confirmed a trial was underway with 500 account holders on social media January 22nd.

According to marketing literature uploaded to Twitter, ABN AMRO aims to offer Bitcoin storage in the same online banking environment customers use for their day-to-day activities through a product called ‘Wallie.’
