Goldman Sachs Warns on the Risks of Cryptocurrencies
Goldman Sachs is definitely one of the banks that does not support cryptocurrencies. The bank confirmed once again that it is not a cryptocurrency fan by issuing a warning to clients about investing on the cryptocurrency market.
Goldman Sachs has reportedly told its clients that the cryptocurrency "mania" had gone "beyond bubble levels." Allegedly, the financials giant has sent a 108-page note to some of its richest clients warning them about the risks of investing in cryptocurrencies.
It has been revealed that the note was issued by the Private Wealth Management division of the company and was sent only to clients who have more than $10 million in investable assets.

Goldman Sachs also made the link between the cryptocurrency market and the already known tulip bubble that happened in the Netherlands. This is definitely not the first time when such a comparison is being made. However, what Goldman Sachs seemed to have wanted to share is that the huge growth in the price of bitcoin has made the cryptocurrency look like a bubble.
Goldman Sachs also issued an interesting hypothesis. The giant bank claimed that a cryptocurrency market crash will not have such a huge effect on the global economy or on financial markets.
