Looking at the top 5 banks by assets, each is focused on the sector.  JP Morgan launched the Blockchain Center for Excellence that looks to develop and pilot solutions across the bank and has delivered the JP Morgan coin and Quorum blockchain.  Bank of America invested in Paxos series D which provides blockchain infrastructure for same day settlement of stock trades.  Wells Fargo started offering bitcoin and crypto exposure to high networth clients.  Citigroup launched a digital assets unit creating 100 jobs to focus specifically on digital assets.  U.S. Bank offers cryptocurrency custody services for institutional investment managers. 


Crypto ETF’s have been approved and launched, the SEC continues to actively comment on the space, and the Wall Street Journal has crypto headlines weekly.  All in all, 2022 has kicked off to show significant institutional growth of digital assets.
