He talked about the company’s plans at an event organized by the Association of Financial Markets of Europe, Bloomberg reported.
“Before we move forward with something like bitcoin, we want to make sure that we understand the underlying transaction, which is not the easiest thing. We are working closely with this … we want to understand the volatility and make sure that customers are interested in this, and also make sure that the regulators came to a consensus, “Tessler said.
