In the heart of the Covid-19 epidemic, the leading bank of Italy launched a Bitcoin trading service with 1.2 million users

The growing cryptocurrency development and the corona virus outbreak have encouraged Italian bank Banco Sella to launch Bitcoin trading service.

Transactions are conducted through the bank's Hype platform, with the bank acting as an intermediary to minimize the potential risks to cryptocurrency exchanges. While the whole country is frozen and people are in jail at home, banks are taking advantage of growing interest in Bitcoin as a safe way to transfer money across borders in a crisis.

About 1.2 million Italians have used the platform Hype to make transactions, they can not only buy and sell Bitcoin, they can also pay for goods and services in cryptocurrency.

Antonio Valitutti, Chief Manager at Hype said:
