It lost $2k in almost 10 minutes’ time, and the announcement of the bank’s entry into Bitcoin made it rise back to $59k again. This move is also going to lead to a long-term bullish effect on the price of Bitcoin as Goldman Sachs is one of the most reputed banks in the USA.

The effect of this move on the BTC market!
It is imperative that the price change if Bitcoin has been attracting a lot more investors and banks. The biggest US banks that called Bitcoin too volatile to be an asset are now offering it to wealthy clients. All this means just one thing for Bitcoin that is global acceptance. Clients are demanding bitcoin soo much that banks are getting inclined to provide access to them. This is also another reason that most banks are giving access only to a limited number of people.
For Goldman Sachs, for a person to qualify they should have at least $25 million to invest. Anyone with wealth equal to or more than the amount will be given access to Bitcoin through the bank. The bank talking about Bitcoin as a hedge to inflation also shows that even they believe in the curreny to an extent at least. Because the Global heads of Goldman Sachs did say that even though the future of BTC is uncertain, it is almost certain that it does have a future.
