U.S. banking powerhouse Goldman Sachs has issued a request for information (RFI) to explore digital asset custody, according to a source inside the bank.
When asked about timing, the Goldman source said the bank’s custody plans would be “evident soon.”
Goldman’s digital asset custody RFI was circulated to at least one well-known crypto custody player toward the end of 2020.
