JPMorgan CEO Continues Anti-Bitcoin
Jamie Dimon, CEO of American investment bank JPMorgan, continues his negative rhetoric for Bitcoin (BTC). Speaking at the Annual Health Conference, Dimon stated that Bitcoin cannot replace real money.
Dimon claims that cryptocurrencies are used more in illegal activities. However, despite the CEO’s attitude, JPMorgan accelerated its blockchain initiatives. The company spends a lot of time in order to use this technology more efficiently.
Despite Dimon, who regularly emits FUD, the JPMorgan company’s blockchain initiatives are receiving a lot of attention. In the past years, Dimon has said that he will lay off employees who deal with cryptocurrencies.
