What Happened: According to a Tuesday CNBC report, U.S. Bank partnered with NYDIG to provide custody services for Bitcoin (CRYPTO: BTC), Bitcoin Cash (CRYPTO: BCH) and Litecoin (CRYPTO: LTC).

Gunjan Kedia, a senior executive at U.S. Bank’s wealth management and investment division, told the news outlet that support for other cryptocurrencies such as Ethereum (CRYPTO: ETH) will be added at a later time.

Similarly, Bank of New York Mellon Corp (NYSE: BK) — the oldest bank in the United States — announced its Bitcoin and digital assets services back in February.
