Gerald Reiter, President and CEO at Granite Bank, a CSI core banking customer, commented: “Bitcoin is one of the fastest growing areas of consumer interest, and we feel strongly about giving customers the ability to safely buy, sell and invest in it.”

In the same survey, 71% of those responding who already owned the digital asset said they’d switch their primary bank to one that offered Bitcoin-related products and services.
