The 47-year-old McDermott also told Bloomberg that Goldman has plans to facilitate trades via exchange-traded notes tracking bitcoin.Cryptocurrencies, led by bitcoin, have staged a modest rebound on Monday following its massive crash in May when it lost almost half of its market value in one week alone.
Yet a recent finding from crypto-asset broker Voyager revealed that 81% of respondents in a recent survey are more confident in the future of cryptocurrency following last month's sell-off."Institutional adoption will continue," McDermott said. "Despite the material price correction, we continue to see a significant amount of interest in this space." In March, that bank's COO and president John Waldron said he has seen an increase in interest from his clients when it comes to investing in bitcoin.
"Client demand is rising," Waldron said in a Wolfe Virtual FinTech Forum. "The pandemic has been a significant accelerant. There is no question in our mind there will be more digital commerce … and (use of) digital money."
