The CEO of JP Morgan, Publicly Declares Bitcoin ‘Currency for Criminals’

Bitcoin

According to JPMorgan CEO, Jamie Dimon, Bitcoin is nothing less than a fraud which will eventually blow up the faces of traders.

Bitcoin is a type of cryptocurrency, and perhaps the most well-known, which can be used to make purchases, trade on Bitcoin exchanges, and is considered as an asset by some and a currency by others.

This week a banking conference was held in New York where Jamie Dimon shared his thoughts on cryptocurrency where he concluded that if any of his employees invest in the organization then the person will be thrown off from the company.

“For two reasons: it’s against our rules, and they’re stupid,” he said. “And both are dangerous.  The currency isn’t going to work.  You can’t have a business where people can invent a currency out of thin air and think that people who are buying it are really smart.”

Dimon suggested that Bitcoin will not succeed, but he also stated that “If you were in Venezuela or Ecuador or North Korea or a bunch of parts like that, or if you were a drug dealer, a murderer, stuff like that, you are better of doing it in bitcoin than US dollars.”

At the initial stage, Bitcoin was able to reach many people and was able to seek the attention of underground markets and online crime. That’s the reason why the government has not accepted the digital currency yet.

Recently, Bitcoin had a very bad impact on one of the America’s largest Banks due to which the value of Bitcoin decreased by six percent on Wednesday.
