David Solomon, CEO of major investment bank Goldman Sachs, expects that the regulatory environment for cryptocurrencies in the United States will significantly improve in the coming years.
During an interview on CNBC, David Solomon said that Goldman Sachs has a great interest in digital assets and bitcoin, but now regulatory norms in America do not allow financial institutions to offer direct investments in such risky assets. However, he expects that the situation will change quite quickly:
“We continue to actively consider digital currencies and ways to transfer money to digital form, we are constantly in touch with customers and identify their needs. I think there will be a big evolution in regulation. But while we are working on the current laws, and I do not want to speculate on how exactly cryptocurrencies will be regulated. We will only continue to look for ways to best serve our customers.”
In early April, former Chairman of the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Jay Clayton (Jay Clayton) expressed confidence that over time, bitcoin will receive proper regulation in the United States. Earlier it was reported that Goldman Sachs will provide its clients with the opportunity to invest in bitcoin in the second quarter of this year
