As reported by U.Today, BNY Mellon announced its foray into crypto in February, racing ahead of rivals like Citi and JPMorgan. It claimed that it would allow its customers to hold and trade digital assets in 2021 but didn’t specify when exactly the new service would launch.     

In March, the bank also disclosed its strategic investment in cryptocurrency startup Fireblocks.
