Letter 1176 that (i) the OCC has the authority to
charter a national bank that operates only as a trust company, and
(ii) the OCC’s chartering authority does not expand or modify
banks’ current responsibilities under Part 9 (“Fiduciary Activities of
National Banks”) of the OCC Rules. With respect to assessing
whether an entity’s activities are limited to the operations of

The OCC stated that a bank can engage in the activities outlined
in Interpretive Letters 1170, 1172 and 1174,
which pertain to (i) cryptocurrency custody services, (ii) whether
banks may hold deposits to serve as “reserves backing
stablecoin,” and (iii) banks’ engagement with distributed
ledger technology for payment services, respectively. The OCC
clarified that in order for a bank to engage in such activities, it
must demonstrate that it has “controls in place to conduct the
activity in a safe and sound manner.” The OCC specified that
banks intending to engage in such activities must first notify
their supervisory office and receive permission. Supervisory
offices must assess whether a bank’s risk management systems
and controls are sufficient for engagement in such activities.
