What’s up with crypto in Switzerland?

PostFinance, which operates as the financial services unit of Swiss Post, plays a crucial role in the financial landscape of Switzerland. With a reputation as a reliable and secure banking service, the institution’s decision to include these cryptocurrencies reflects the growing acceptance and integration of digital assets into mainstream finance.
