This collaboration is coming shortly after the investment firm’s previous collaboration with Q2, Fiserv and Alkami. All these previous collaborations were also geared towards offering BTC services to about 18M customers.
A report by Cointelegraph stated that Patrick Sells, head of bank solutions for the investment company said banks in US are willing to provide BTC services this year.

In the beginning of the year, NCR bought Terafina firm to ease the process of assimilation of customers.
