WSJ Claims Barclays Is On Verge of Forming Bitcoin Startup
Barclays and the bitcoin startup, Safello, will build a program that would allow charities to accept bitcoin.
There’s been a surge in interest in bitcoin among Wall Street banks.
Safello went through Barclays accelerator program in London over the summer, run in partnership with Techstars, a private accelerator program.
These accelerator programs have been spreading to more big banks, and there are benefits on both sides.
The startups get access to the banks, and the banks get to take a peak inside the leading edge of technology and innovation.
