Quite sure they'll leave all the risks with the butters and just earn some extra fees with a little bit of services. Just guessing, I'd expect them to cooperate with a crypto partner like Paypal. Let's see whether I'm right.
You don't even need to know a single line of programming code to be a massive help in the development of bitcoin. Just always keep in mind the code of deductive logic and you'll be a weapon against liars and manipulators.
IT'S ALL ABOUT CONTROL.
Fool the newbies that keeping BTC in a bank custody is "better and safer"... track/trace/monitor all their txs and identify all other players. Create giant user database of BTC users (Remember Coinbase aquiring the Neutrino surveillance company) and give all that data to your loved gov.... what could go wrong?
ALWAYS REMEMBER: NOT YOUR KEYS= NOT YOUR BITCOINS FUCK THE BANKS!

BBVA, the second-largest bank in Spain, with about $840 B in assets, is poised to enter the cryptocurrency trading and custody space, according to two people familiar with the plans. One source with knowledge of the plans told CoinDesk that BBVA is "launching its Europe-wide crypto initiative from Switzerland,” adding “There are still some compliance hurdles so this will not be in December, but I expect they [BBVA] will be live next month.”
Asked if BBVA was building its solution primarily to deal with tokenized securities and the like, the source said: “This is a cryptocurrency offering.” BBVA said it could not comment.
