German Banking Giant Dwpbank Brings Bitcoin to the Masses with New Platform Launch
Bitcoin, the undisputed king of cryptocurrencies, continues to rack up major wins in the financial world. News just broke that Deutsche WertpapierService Bank (Dwpbank), a heavyweight in the German banking industry, is set to launch a new platform called wpNex that will offer Bitcoin to all of its affiliates’ retail customers in the second half of this year.
That’s right, you heard it here first, folks! This is yet another major coup for Bitcoin as it continues to gain mainstream acceptance and adoption. And coming just 24 hours after the news that Nasdaq is to offer Bitcoin custody in Q2 this year, it seems like things are moving fast.
The new platform will allow customers to access crypto accounts alongside their other accounts without the need for additional Know Your Customer (KYC) procedures. Wallet-as-a-service provider Tangany and Bankhaus Scheich’s Tradias digital asset trading service are also on board, ensuring that the new offering will be top-notch and backed by some serious industry players.
Germany leading Bitcoin Adoption
It’s no secret that Germany has been one of the most Bitcoin-friendly countries in the world, and this move by Dwpbank only solidifies that fact. In February, DZ Bank announced that it was adding Bitcoin to its asset management service, and now Dwpbank is following suit.
However, it’s not all good news on the crypto front in Germany. Nuri, a German crypto bank, shut down in November due to the bear market, despite having half a million customers.
And with what’s going on at Deutsche Bank, this could be just in time for Germans who need somewhere safe to park their wealth, The tides are turning, and Bitcoin is at the forefront of this financial revolution.
