Goldman Sachs Group Inc (GS.N) is allowing Wall Street investors to trade with a derivative tied to bitcoin prices, Bloomberg News reported on Thursday.

Goldman, the fifth-largest U.S. bank, has opened up trading with non-deliverable forwards that eventually pay out in cash, the report said.

The bank will protect itself from the cryptocurrency’s volatility by buying and selling Bitcoin futures in block trades on CME Group (CME.O) using Cumberland DRW as its trading partner, according to the report.

Goldman declined to comment on the report.

The move comes after the Wall Street bank restarted its cryptocurrency trading desk earlier this year, with plans to begin dealing bitcoin futures and non-deliverable forwards for clients. read more
