Jamie Dimon vs. Bitcoin (BTC): October 2018Two days ago at an AXIOS conference, the CEO was asked about changing his mind on Bitcoin, and he said, "I never changed what I said, I just regret having said it," CNBC reported. Dimon continued by saying:
"I didn't want to be the spokesman against Bitcoin (BTC). I don't really give a s*&^, that's the point—okay? But Blockchain is real, it's technology, Bitcoin is not the same as fiat currency."Most major banking CEOs around the globe have taken a very similar stance on the matter. Nearly a year ago, Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS) CEO James Gordon stated that despite Bitcoin rising 700 percent in 2017, the digital currency was the definition of a "speculative investment and anyone thinking it might be stable is deluding themselves." Gorman goes on to describe Bitcoin as “not even close to a safe investment.” >> Coinbase will Add Nearly 300 Coins in the Next Year but Won't IPO Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS) is the exception among most major US banks. GS has been very pro digital currencies and is even recently rumored to have started onboarding some of its clients to sign up for its future crypto projects. There has yet to be an official statement from the bank on the matter, but the support shouldn't come as much of a surprise, as the bank has been vocal about its crypto plans in the past.
