One of the countries leading banks met with Fortress back in 2013 to discuss the future of bitcoins and various exchanges that would happen around the world following the currency’s development. The two companies formed a partnership in order to fill the gap that is left between the American people and regulated exchange related to bitcoin. With bitcoin’s capabilities to form transactions anywhere, it is only a matter of time before it becomes the currency of the future. Between the two companies, no final decision was ever made to carry out there plan and negotiations did not start anything to fill the gaps in the bitcoin market. According to Peter Briger, Wall Street has been able to benefit greatly from the development of bitcoins, but even still they have only just begun their journey into bitcoin territory.
