It's official — the new chief executive of Goldman Sachs will be the firm's current chief operating officer David Solomon, who last month said the New York investment bank is looking in to adding further bitcoin and cryptocurrency services to its portfolio.

According to Solomon, Goldman Sachs is already offering clients publicly-traded derivatives tied to bitcoin but in an interview with Bloomberg he said the bank must "evolve its business and adapt to the environment."

"We are clearing some futures around bitcoin, talking about doing some other activities there, but it’s going very cautiously," said Solomon. "We’re listening to our clients and trying to help our clients as they’re exploring those things too."
