Barclays (BCS) CEO Ashok Vaswani has spoken to regulators about engaging with the cryptocurrency, although he did not elaborate on what that would involve. In particular, Vaswani has spoken to the FCA about how to make bitcoin safe.

Bitcoin is becoming increasingly used in society with Japan recently making it legal for businesses to begin accepting the cryptocurrency as payments.
