It is expected that around 24 million users will be able to use the service. NCR will roll out a dedicated mobile application for crypto trading. Financial institutions taking part in the program will not have to store their clients' cryptocurrencies, avoiding this way potential problems with regulators. For this purpose, NYDIG will provide its own custody service. The company will also assume transaction fees and offer additional investment services. NYDIG's head of bank solutions, Patrick Sells, said:
"I think you'll see cheaper transaction fees through the banks than what you have today in the marketplace. But the banks do get to determine what they want that transaction fee to be."
