Computer Services, Inc. (CSI) has announced its partnership with NYDIG to provide turnkey bitcoin services to the community of financial institutes. CSI is known for providing eminent end-to-end fintech and regtech solutions. And NYDIG is a leading bitcoin company.

The new bitcoin services are powered by NYDIG. The services will enable banking customers to buy, sell, and hold bitcoin directly through CSI’s digital banking platform. This platform will be a safe way for users to do bitcoin transactions efficiently and manage their transactions.

According to a 2021 survey commissioned by NYDIG, 81% of respondents said they would be interested in purchasing bitcoin from their bank if the service was available. In the same survey, 71% of respondents who already owned the digital asset said they would switch their primary bank to one that offered Bitcoin-related products and services.

In this venture. Gerald Reiter, president and CEO at Granite Bank, a CSI core banking customer shared, that “Bitcoin is one of the fastest-growing areas of consumer interest, and we feel strongly about giving customers the ability to buy, sell, and invest in it safely.”

NYDIG’s products are already renowned as they meet the industry’s highest regulations, governance standards, and audits. The products, therefore, enable financial organizations to uphold stringent compliance programs and keep enhancing the banking experience for their customers.

In addition to the new offering of bitcoins, Patrick Sells, NYDIG Chief Innovation Officer, also put in his comments. He says, “Community banks are excited about offering Bitcoin services to their customers, but they also know that they need to provide a secure and compliant environment to maintain the trust that their customers place in them. Therefore, by partnering with CSI, we can help community banks meet the growing demand for bitcoin while remaining compliant and secure with a seamless customer experience through the CSI digital banking platform.”

In the end, the new offering exhibits CSI’s full suite of digital banking technology. The technology provides a wide range of solutions for financial institutions, such as seamless mobile banking, web design and hosting, digital account opening, and digital payments.

At CSI, our top priority is helping our customers remain on the edge of innovation. We must enable community financial institutions to grow their assets and reach new customers by integrating Bitcoin along with our suite of innovative digital banking products.”

Giovanni Mastronardi, CSI’s group president of Enterprise Banking

Copper Introduces Investment Product for Teenagers to Promote Financial Literacy!

Copper | December 28, 2022

Copper, the premier banking app that teaches teens and children about money and prepares them for future financial success, has expanded to include Copper Investing, a teen-centric Registered Investment Advisor (RIA). Copper Investing provides easy-to-use, automated portfolios for kids to learn about (and begin) creating wealth in a secure environment. Its goal is to give teens long-term financial power by offering them real-world learning experiences that would enable them to become better investors and not just make money. Copper goes beyond banking with Copper Investing, the first-of-its-kind platform for teen investing based on education. This comes after Copper held free workshops on money management in over 5,000 high schools across the country. The product gives teens easy-to-use, automated portfolios for investing. This helps them learn about money at a young age and use what they've learned to safely build wealth. Copper thinks that with inflation going up, teens need to learn more than just how to save money. Spending time in the market and being willing to take risks are two of the best ways for teens to build wealth. The company wants to teach them about money so that they can become smart investors. This way, parents can feel safe knowing that their teen's financial future comes first. Copper Investing uses a unique questionnaire based on best practices in the industry to find out how much risk its users are willing to take. Then, it matches them with a finely crafted portfolio that fits within their comfort zone while also taking into account what their parents want. All three of Copper's global equity portfolios don't have any exposure to bonds or cryptocurrencies. Instead, they use a diverse group of low-cost ETFs to offer a good balance between risk and long-term return. Copper has also given about $1 million to over 200,000 people on the Copper Investing waitlist. Copper will invest over $1 million into the first investment and wealth-building accounts of teenagers as soon as the investing product becomes operational. AboutCopper Copper Banking was developed to enable teenagers to obtain real-world financial experience by granting them access to their funds in a way that regular banks cannot. Copper's app and debit card help parents and teens talk about money while also teaching teens how to make smart financial decisions. The company was started with the idea that all teenagers should have equal access to financial education and be able to learn by doing, because it's never too early to be financially responsible.
