JP Morgan And Crypto Relationship
Recall that the CEO of the bank, Jamie Dimon is an anti-bitcoin and has expressed his skepticism towards the crypto asset. That’s why everyone is surprised at this sudden move.
JP Morgan Chase hasn’t been too keen on embracing crypto. But it has shown great interest in Metaverse. The bank released a report in early 2022 predicting that 3D virtual words might grow into a trillion-dollar market in years to come.
The bank’s reluctance over crypto is not surprising, given that its top leaders were not interested in it. For instance, the Chief Strategist in the bank, David Kelly, advised crypto investors of impending recession and volatility, stating they should dispose of their BTC holdings.
Also, CEO Jamie Dimon always referred to bitcoin as worthless. He even warned investors against adding to their portfolios. The CEO made the same arguments eleven months ago, saying that BTC doesn’t have value but is gold for fools. Dimon then commented that he would prefer regulators to take action against it.
