The very famous ‘Bitcoin is a fraud and is worth nothing’ notion that came from Jamie Dimon – the CEO of JPMorgan, could very well be the last attack against the cryptocurrency leader Bitcoin.
Jamie Dimon did state that he will ‘not be talking about Bitcoin anymore’ while the company has turned into a more open-minded firm when it comes to digital currencies.
It has been announced on CNBC on Thursday, that the very well banking figure and CEO who publicly described BTC as ‘worth nothing and that anybody who would trade it should be fired’ has lost faith in his own opinion and its nature.
“I wouldn’t put this high on the category of important things in the world. But I’m not going to talk about bitcoin anymore,”
On the other hand, Marianne Lake – CFO of JPMorgan handled the situation with stating that the company turned its doors open to virtual currencies that are ‘taken care of’ in the right way, as she praised and very optimistically spoke about Blockchain technology and its future importance.:
“We are open-minded for digital currencies that are properly controlled and regulated,”
On his last comment relating to the subject, Dimon explain how it has been noted out to him that trillions of dollars worth of assets are moved digitally online by them:
“I was reminded that we move trillions of dollars a day … digitally. It’s not cash.”
The CEO’s comments in the past did shake around Bitcoin’s price against the US Dollar as many reported his speech hit the mainstream area by several news-channels. However, now that is almost forgotten as BTC/USD did hit is new all-time high over $5,200 with 8% increase in the last 24-hours.
