Growing crypto adoption and the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has encouraged Italy’s Banca Sella to launch a Bitcoin trading service.

It has been reported that the trading is conducted through the bank’s Hype platform, with the bank acting as an intermediary to mitigate against potential security risks with cryptocurrency exchanges. With the country in lockdown and everyone stuck at home, the bank is capitalizing on a growing interest in Bitcoin as a safe way to transfer money internationally in the midst of the crisis.

However, about 1.2 million Italians already use Banca Stella’s Hype to carry out transactions and not only will they be able to buy and sell Bitcoin, but they will also be able to pay for goods and services with the cryptocurrency.

Antonio Valitutti, the General Manager at Hype said:

“The cryptocurrency and Bitcoin market in particular continues to arouse interest, especially among the public that constitutes our customer base — by definition young and smart and who, increasingly, expect to be able to access this world through the tool that they use to manage money on a daily basis.”

Likewise, interest in cryptocurrency and blockchain has received a boost in recent months among Italian institutions.

Thus, blockchain technology was applied to electronic voting in Naples and two Italian high schools last week announced they would record diplomas on blockchain.
