A traditional bank is offering crypto services in the USA With state approval.


Forbes Report that Vast Bank customers can purchase Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, Cardano, Filecoin, Litecoin, Orchid and Algorand directly from a FDIC-insured checking account.

Forbes Writes:

“Vast Bank, N.A. is now the first federally chartered bank in the U.S. to offer the ability to buy, sell, and custody cryptocurrencies – directly from a checking account – all under one roof.”

Vast unique ability to buy, hold, and sell crypto within the bank was approved by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) and discussed with the Federal Reserve. The development comes in part after Vast partnered with Coinbase, who refer their customers to Vast about custodial solutions.

 

Vast Bank CEO Brad Scrivner said:

“We’re familiar with regulation, we’re going to do the right things, we’re going to do things to make sure the financial system is kept safe and sound,” 





Judith Rinearson, a legal expert who helps navigate many crypto clients says:

“This is great news for the cryptocurrency community. It has historically been difficult for digital asset companies to even get banking services, much less to have a bank that provides digital asset services. I view this as a step in the right direction, and I suspect that we will see more banking/digital asset ventures in the future,”
