Banco Galicia Pioneers Crypto Trading for Banks in Argentina

Banco Galicia, one of the biggest private banks in Argentina, has decided to complement its investment services with the introduction of cryptocurrencies in its portfolio. Now, customers of the bank will be able to invest in crypto assets directly from the banking app, without having to resort to other exchanges or third parties. This move makes Banco Galicia reportedly the first bank to offer these services in Argentina.

The news was revealed by several customers of the bank on social media who were surprised by the quiet inclusion of this service. This functionality is being offered through a partnership with Lirium, a third party that will act as the exchange to execute the orders of the customers and serve as a custody provider for the involved cryptocurrencies.

The motivation for including these new investment services comes from customer demand amidst the rise in popularity of crypto instruments. On this, Ariel H. Sanchez, manager of investment products, and Nicolás de Giovanni, senior product manager of Banco Galicia explained:
