Bitcoin declines on Goldman Sachs’ remark

On Friday, Bitcoin managed to gain ground, although it was still in the red because Goldman Sachs debunked reports that it had left its crypto trading desk intact.

On the Bitfinex exchange, Bitcoin headed south to $6,441.10.

Crypto assets in general ascended, with the crypto market cap of the overall market capitalization hitting $202 billion in contrast with Wednesday’s outcome of $239 billion.

The number two crypto alternative by market cap, Ethereum headed south by 4.16% coming up with an outcome of $220.59. In addition to this, the number three digital coin by market cap, XRP managed to gain 0.76% demonstrating $0.29166. Litecoin came up with a reading of $56.22, jumping by 0.14%.

On Friday, Marty Chavez, Goldman Sachs Chief Financial Officer told that the financial giant had gave up an idea to have a bitcoin trading desk launched.

Delivering a speech at a TechCrunch Disrupt conference, Marty Chavez told that the company is currently concerned with finding new ways to offer the most popular crypto coin, including even non-deliverable forwards.

Marty told that these happen to be derivatives over the counter derivatives, and they’re going to be settled exactly in American dollars, while the reference price will be set by several crypto exchanges. It will be the same as what’s actually referenced in the futures contracts. The representative added that the company is currently working on what many folks want to be real – physical Bitcoin.  

According to some sources, Goldman Sachs postponed its plans to have a trading desk started because of the regulatory fears. Instead, the company would concentrate on other projects, including holding crypto assets on behalf of large fund customers. However, the company added that it might get back to the idea of a trading desk later.

As a matter of fact, Bitcoin sank to $6,375.10 after the news.
