There are just two weeks, an official of the company announced that the bank was in the process of taking steps to impose on its employees no longer use this virtual currency. This week, the bank confirmed to various media, such as Reuters and Bloomberg that the device will soon be implemented. The spokesperson of Nordea told Reuters by email that the risks are considered too high, and that the protection is insufficient for the employees and the bank.
Customers are warned
Nordea has been forced to address the question about the customers who are interested in the crypto-currency. The bank has explained that it is important to emphasize that they are not recommending their clients to invest in the Bitcoin. Like all other trading platforms, Nordea Investor provides access to trade in all securities listed on the stock exchange. However, Nordea has said that customers are free to purchase products related to the crypto-currency. So this is just a recommendation for the clients.
The rival Nordea, Danske Bank, has also implemented the same ban. The spokesperson of the bank said that they are skeptical of the digital currency and advise its employees not to share.
