Are you afraid that crypto is going to be banned in The U.S?
You can rest easy knowing that both The FDIC and large banking institutions are interested in a regulatory framework which will allow banks to hold cryptocurrencies.
This is excellent news for both the seasoned investor, as well as those looking to get in.
It’s still unclear as to what exactly these regulations will look like, but investors and financiers alike seem to be excited for what this move holds for the future of cryptocurrencies in The U.S.

Reuters quotes The FDIC chair:
“I think that we need to allow banks in this space, while appropriately managing and mitigating risk,” she said in an interview on the sidelines of a fintech conference.
“If we don’t bring this activity inside the banks, it is going to develop outside of the banks. … The federal regulators won’t be able to regulate it.”
