Jamie Dimon Comments on Bitcoin Once again, he says he does not care


On the eve of the tenth anniversary of the Bitcoin white paper (BTC), on October 30, JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon found himself talking again about the main cryptocurrency, despite his resume of attempts to extricate himself from the debate.

As reported by CNBC on October 31, Dimon made his "reluctant" comments at the Axios conference in Los Angeles on Tuesday. Referring to his now famous statement that the invention of Nakamoto is little more than a "fraud", the CEO told the audience:

"I never changed what I said, I'm sorry I just said it, I did not want to be the Bitcoin spokesman, I do not give a shit, that's the point, Blockchain is real, it's the technology, but Bitcoin is not the same legal currency. "

As reported previously, Dimon's tortuous story with Bitcoin dates back to September 2017, when his critical rhetoric caused a thick twinge at the price of the asset.

After committing himself to keep silent on the issue, in January the CEO was again involved in a speech on Bitcoin, claiming to have regretted his previous choice of words, while reiterating his declared indifference.

Despite the ambivalence of the CEO, prominent figures of the banking giant have hinted at a potentially more receptive position towards cryptographic space, although the signs of the institution regarding the crypto are mixed in a resonant manner.

As Dimon's latest comment suggests, JPMorgan is more directly pro-blockchain: a study on the digital transformation of JPMorgan published earlier this month pointed out that blockchain is a key technology for the bank's roadmap.

At the end of September, JPMorgan extended its blockchain-based payment platform to over 75 multinational banks, as part of a collective offering to drive away competition from outside the banking sector.
