According to sources, US banks such as Goldman Sachs are studying accepting Bitcoin as collateral to provide cash loans to institutions. These banks consider "imitating the tripartite repurchase arrangement" to avoid their exposure to Bitcoin, but they can also issue loans accordingly. According to sources, this is an opportunity to lay the foundation for a more integrated cryptocurrency prime broker business in the future. A source said that Goldman Sachs is applying for this kind of loan; if a clearing agent is found, they will only issue a secured loan, and their balance sheet will not involve Bitcoin. The report mentioned Coinbase and Fidelity Digital Assets as possible custodians.
