Santander Rolls Out Crypto Trading Service for Swiss Account Holders

The international arm of Spanish lender Banco Santander has reportedly rolled out a new service, allowing clients with Swiss accounts to invest in and trade Bitcoin (BTC) and Ether (ETH).

According to a report from Coindesk, high-net-worth individuals of Santander Private Banking International will have access to trade BTC and ETH. While Santander’s rollout of the new crypto trading services will reportedly start off with BTC and ETH only, the banking giant will introduce other cryptocurrencies following the clearance of its screening criteria.

Santander launched the BTC and ETH trading services upon request from clients through relationship managers. The bank will hold the private cryptographic keys of the tradable assets in a regulated custody model.

Commerzbank recently became the first “full-service” German bank to be granted a crypto custody license in the country. The license allows the bank to offer custody of crypto assets and “further digital asset services” in the future.

“This highlights our ongoing commitment to applying the latest technologies and innovations, and it forms the foundation for supporting our customers in the areas of digital assets,” stated Jörg Oliveri del Castillo-Schulz, chief operating officer of Commerzbank.

The bank initially plans to establish a platform that is both “secure and reliable” and fully complies with local regulations.
