“We see risks in participating, but we see bigger risks in not participating. But we also don’t think that the sector and the technology is going away anytime soon,” said Comyn.

What features will CBA provide to clients? According to the bank's CEO, the institution will soon allow its clients to trade cryptocurrencies using its own application. A total of around 10 assets will be available. Depending on the market situation and customer demand, the bank will add new features and options for dealing with cryptocurrencies.
