The Transformation from a traditional lending institution to the global leaders in terms of institutional management of Assets from the crypto-industry is the California Bank silver gate rapidly. Although no Details about the exact use of the new Capital resulting from the official SEC application through the IPO; the silver gate refers only to investments in "organic growth and General corporate purposes". In view of the explicit crypto-affinity of the Bank for the Expansion of crypto-Services, however, is more than likely.
Because of the silver gate is located since 2013 in the middle of the crypto sector. As Xconomy reported, is at the time CEO Alan Lane with the crypto Virus, and keeps the Bank since then, on course. 2014 silver gate with the Digital Currency Group (DCG) was able to gain a significant Holding from the crypto-Ecosystem.

Compared to the previous year, the credit institution recorded an increase of 323 percent in this area. This is evident from the IPO document. All cryptographic clients, taken together, behind, therefore, approximately $ 1.7 billion in silver gate.
