Bank of America Cryptocurrency Deposit Patent
A patent well over four years old, has finally been confirmed by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to Bank of America involving cryptocurrency transactions. The patent describes the potential importance of processing cryptocurrency transactions for enterprise customers, meaning bank accounts for individuals would still have no interaction directly with cryptocurrencies. In one outlined situation, the enterprise account itself would be able to conduct transactions on customers’ behalf, debiting or crediting the customer accounts in question as appropriate. Further, it includes the structural methods for storing private keys associated with customers’ accounts, determining public keys, and generating “vault keys” for storage. Most importantly the system includes another method for instant crypto-fiat conversions.

They have recently signed a Letter of Intent which gives GoverMedia the exclusive rights to negotiate a transaction within the next 180 days. With completion of the transaction the new entity would continue to be publicly traded, indirectly putting a cryptocurrency exchange onto a public stock exchange.
