Banks Are an Odd Place to Keep Your Crypto

One of cryptocurrencies’ biggest selling points is that they allow people to break away from traditional banking systems. Now banks are hoping to convince you otherwise.

As US regulators look more closely at the world of crypto, it’s likely that American banks will soon be following their big foreign counterparts in offering retail customers the ability to trade and store digital coins. But why would someone choose to invest through a bank instead of through one of the big crypto exchanges, such as Coinbase? I can’t find a lot of reasons why.

Figuring out the best place to buy and sell cryptocurrencies will really come down to what’s most important to the investor. If having some sort of safety net to help deal with unexpected problems is a top priority, investing through a bona fide bank may be the best route. By most other measures though, it’s hard to see where banks offer any advantage.
