USAA is expanding its bitcoin integration by allowing all accountholders to connect and view balances on Coinbase from its USAA.com website following its November pilot program.
In statements, lead investment associate at the USAA corporate development Jon Cholak, indicated his support for the more widespread rollout, positioning his firm as an early advocate for the technology.
USAA was one of several participants in the $75m Series C round raised by bitcoin services firm Coinbase in January 2015, alongside The New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and BBVA Ventures.
The Fortune 500 firm has previously said its members are active bitcoin users, and that this was a key reason behind its investment in Coinbase.
