Major bank State Street claims that institutional investors have continued to be interested in blockchain technology and digital assets and have not been impacted by the current crypto winter. In an interview with Australian news outlet Sydney Morning Herald (SMH) on Sunday, Irfan Ahmad, the Asia Pacific digital lead for the bank's cryptocurrency division State Street Digital, emphasised that despite the market's notable volatility in June and July.

Particularly for the Cosmos Purpose Bitcoin Access ETF, State Street is the fund manager. In the "very near future," further bitcoin product releases are anticipated in Australia, according to Ahmad, who made no specific names known.

The Commonwealth Bank's temporary cryptocurrency trading business was shut down permanently in May due to regulatory uncertainties.

Large American businesses have recently made large investments in the bitcoin market, including BlackRock. The $10 trillion asset management partnered with Coinbase last month to launch a private spot Bitcoin (BTC) trust in order to provide institutional clients with direct access to cryptocurrencies.

Ryan Rugg and David Cunningham, two significant executives, joined Citigroup's Treasury and Trade Solutions (TTS) division in August. TTS is in charge of handling the company's institutional cryptocurrency offers. Rugg came as the global head of digital assets for TTS, and Cunningham was hired as the director and strategic partner development for digital assets at the business.

In response to the rising demand for the yield-bearing asset prior to the Merge, the Swiss digital asset banking platform SEBA Bank has launched the institutional Ether (ETH) staking service on September 7.
