What had happened before? In March, Goldman Sachs began over-the-counter cryptocurrency trading. The company representatives stated that the bank had entered into a bitcoin-based non-deliverable option deal with Galaxy Digital.

The bank conducted a survey among clients on the topic of digital assets. The survey found that 60% of those polled wanted to buy cryptocurrencies in the next two years. According to the survey, 55% of respondents could allocate up to 5% of their total assets to buy cryptocurrencies.

In April, Mary Catherine Rich, global head of digital assets for the bank’s private wealth management division, announced that Goldman Sachs would offer investments in cryptocurrencies to its clients in 2022.
