It seems that US banks are changing their stance on Bitcoin and other popular cryptocurrencies.
Simple bank is one of the American most Bitcoin-friendly banks that collaborates with multiple Bitcoin exchange websites and permits direct buy-sell transaction for bitcoin.
In contrast with traditional consumer banks, Simple has no physical branches. Instead, account-holders are issued Visa debit cards and have access to an online banking system accessible through Simple.com or mobile apps for Android or iOS.
USAA is Coinbase friendly and it allows Coinbase users to check their bitcoin balances from their apps and have invested in the exchange. This marks the first major bank to invest in an exchange.
Coinbase is a website where you can buy/sell cryptocurrencies (e.g. Bitcoin).  When buying cryptocurrencies, you are exchanging cash/dollars for say bitcoin.  As such, to make this purchase, the case/dollars have to come from somewhere.  One of the options available is to use a Bank Account.  When you chose this option, USAA is one of the banks that supports this type of transaction.
Goldman Sachs, perhaps the most storied name in finance, is bucking the risks and moving ahead with plans to set up what appears to be the first Bitcoin trading operation at a Wall Street bank. Goldman Sachs has announced that it will launch an altcoin trading desk and will offer altcoin products in 2018. Just wait a bit and you might be able to use this bank for your bitcoin transactions very soon.
Bank of America is the second-largest bank in the US and one of the most US-friendly bitcoin banks. The customers of these bank claim that it is easy to make bitcoin payments and there are not restrictions. You can deposit and cash out large sums over $20K and never have issues. Many bitcoin exchanges have been collaborating with the BoA for bank transfers when buying/selling bitcoin. Bank of America was even reviewing its bitcoin policy to allow customers to buy bitcoin with credit cards.
