According to Bloomberg News, Goldman Sachs offered its first bitcoin-backed loan on Thursday, bringing Wall Street one step closer to crypto.

The borrower utilized bitcoin (BTC) as collateral for a cash loan through the secured lending facility. Under this arrangement, a bitcoin owner can get fiat money – US dollars – to hold his BTC as collateral with the bank.

Because of this, if the value of the bitcoin falls, the borrower may be forced to increase their collateral. They face liquidation if they do not deposit the requisite collateral.

Goldman Sachs is the latest addition to this increasing list

Bloomberg is the opposite. A Goldman Sachs representative declined to provide precise loan information instead of describing the loan’s structure and 24/7 risk monitoring as “interesting.”

Bitcoin-backed loans have recently been popular among bitcoin mining firms, as businesses that generate revenue in BTC must also pay their overhead and operational costs in US dollars or other currencies.

Goldman Sachs is now following other traditional banking firms, such as BlackRock (BLK), which invested $400 million in USDC stablecoin manufacturer Circle.

Crypto upheld land

The crypto promised on Abra is then used to acquire US dollars, which can be applied to home buys.

Happen[In]Krypto has connected with Propy and its CEO Natalia Karayaneva for extra remarks and will refresh this story as needs are.
