Wow! I can see why there are so many answers that are probably not answering the question in the way in which you asked. I can see how there can many interpretations as to the way that you worded it. Are you really trying to find out which banks are Bitcoin friendly?
First of all, you all that have answered so far gave some really good insight on Bitcoin, but that does not answer the author’s question (If I am understanding the question correctly). I know that this is an old post, but I am sure that someone else will still have this same question. In that case, I will give my best attempt to answer the question that was asked.
I think that the people that have so far answered your question didn’t realize at the time of posting their answers didn’t realize that banks are actually allergic to Bitcoin. What do I mean by that? Well… Before you do any kind of serious trading or transactions with Bitcoin, you must first have some things in place. For instance, you must have an anti money laundering agreement in place. People think that profits from Bitcoin is tax free. The IRS doesn’t see it that way. Bitcoin profits are taxed as capital gains. So if you’re going to do any kind of significant volume using a bank as a middle man, you have to have things in order, or else, they will shut your account down and you may even see a negative balance. Bank of America is notorious for shutting down accounts!
To get a good idea about which banks are most Bitcoin friendly, I suggest that you visit Bitcoin News, Blockchain News, Prices, Charts & Analysis - CoinDesk and inquire within the community. I also recommend Paxful and their website is: Achetez bitcoin instantanément where there are over 300 ways to trade Bitcoin, including cash deposit directly to the seller’s bank account.
I hope this helps! Just keep in mind it’s going to be more so about that anti money laundering paperwork than it really is about the bank itself.

Despite this fact, many choose to solider on and make use of both centralized and decentralized exchanges to purchase and trade cryptos while running the risk of retribution from their banking services provider. Fortunately, advances in the world of fintech have produced a number of banking projects that look set to step in and provide cryptocurrency friendly services for the entire community.

If you need a bank to manage your money, there isn’t any base to owning bitcoin. The first agenda of bitcoin and cryptocurrencies were to abolish the intermediary authority like banks, payment gateways, and the government tax regulations. But, if you are talking about banks that can transfer your bitcoin in some currency then there are many such banks.
You do realize that banks cannot keep their hands off cryptocurrency world, a world that is growing rapidly and is a revolution in itself. Yet, many countries have stated bitcoin as an illegal means of transactions. Countries like India has seen a rapid increase in illegal transactions and crime rates since the day bitcoins came in action. So, RBI (Reserve Bank of India) has warned the bitcoin community to give up their practice. Where many traders gave up instantly, fearing the consequences associated with RBI ultimatum, there are still many traders out there taking risks for they understand the profit they can have with bitcoins which is nothing compared to the risks taken against the government.
Talking in respect of global acceptance, there are many banks and bank ATMs that convert bitcoins into any country’s currency and vice versa. You can check the detailed banks and acceptance procedures on BTCMonk- a website for tracking, exchanging, converting, mining, and trading of cryptocurrencies.

Currently no banks accept Bitcoins in its form. They trade/transact in government backed fiat currencies only.
Although Bitcoin is a legal payment tender in some countries. Your traditional banks do not directly deal with Bitcoin. There might be some intermediary who convert Bitcoin to local currency and vice versa.
Secondly Bitcoins is against the concept of centralised authority in charge of your money. If you need a bank to park your money, you do not need Bitcoin.

Bitcoin’s Acceptance by Financial Institutions
Cryptocurrency is making it to the headlines of newspapers, news websites every day. It has jolted the world of business and finance and even the aftershocks it bears are quite rich in magnitude. How did it get here is a question which has many answers, but how the picture of future will be affected by the renowned term Bitcoin is yet to be answered.
Bitcoin may be nerve wrecking, a reality too hard to digest, but it sure is exciting and keeping the whole world hyped up as it throws small tantrums every now and then. Cryptocurrency news today various organization in the finance and tech world are playing the role of keen witnesses in this entire bitcoin story, they are waiting for the best moment when the huge snowball of bitcoin engulfs them as well. The agencies are taking a more calculated approach towards it, so here are some facts on how the giants of this industry are taking Bitcoin and how their choices will reshape the future;
Banks will be not deliberately missing out on this severe transformation, which is a whole shift of paradigm. The technology we are discussing has a financial inclination, but it has a disruptive side to it as well, and keeping these realities makes it more difficult for banking sector to ignore the shift that has been taking place so close to them. Banking on the other side has always been reluctant and less amenable to the changes that take place around. This industry takes more calculated steps towards any probable change and simultaneously keeps a backlash path clean. Banking sector despite of being all rigid will have to accept and evolve bitcoin and cryptocurrency, as the society will soon be craving for this change.

I am not sure that I understand your question. Also, I am not sure that you understand how Bitcoin works.
But, I will go ahead and make some comments, in hopes of helping to answer your question and to increase your understanding:
1) Any bank that has safe deposit boxes could "accept bitcoin" into a safe deposit box, as what makes bitcoin able to be controlled and "possessed" is the ability to maintain the secret key to a wallet address. So, whether the key is printed on a physical medium ("paper wallet") or on a USB memory stick or other form of digital storage, the secret key could be stored in a bank's safe deposit box (for what is called "cold storage" ie offline storage).
2) There are businesses that exist in order to facilitate the purchase of bitcoin with fiat currencies. To my knowledge, the main two are Circle and Coinbase. These organizations are registered with all the pertinent regulatory financial authorities in the United States.
I think what you are wondering is if any "run-of-the-mill" banks will take someone's bitcoin and store it for them. The idea of Bitcoin is that it was created as an alternative to traditional banking systems. So while there have been and will hopefully continue to be progress made with the integration of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies into the more traditional financial system, it is not something that is universally accepted at this time (and there are probably those in both camps that are vehemently opposed to the integration).
In my opinion, it is inevitable that the financial systems in place today will (eventually) become better equipped to handle and process transactions, exchanges, and storage of digital/cryptographic currencies. However, we are very much still in the early stages of this technology, so there are going to be obstacles and stumbles along the way.
