JP Morgan and Bitcoin: a relationship with the beginning complicated and happy ending
Unlike what happened with the gold metal to John P. Morgan was regarded as the only true money, the company JP Morgan are not always seen with good eyes to Bitcoin and the cryptocurrencies.
But, as Breaking News was portraying in his notes over the years, this perspective was changing.
In September 2017, the CEO of this banking institution, Jamie Dimon railed against Bitcoin to qualify for fraud. He also said on that occasion that it would fire any employee of yours who deal with Bitcoin because it is considered “stupid”.
A month later, in statements to the press, came back to qualify to Bitcoin of fraud and pointed out that the investors that relied on the criptomoneda “pay the price” for investing in a “stupidity”.
Also for those days Dimon spoke on the topic and, with an attitude less belligerent said to see something good in Bitcoin: the blockchain. The banker argued that this technology “could be used for digital dollars”. In fact, JP Morgan is already experimenting with the blockchain from a year ago.
It wasn’t long before the company was denounced in the courts of Sweden for the manipulation of markets. Is that, a few days after the statements of Dimon, and after the fall of the price of Bitcoin, JP Morgan stood out as one of the most active buyers of the criptoactivo.
From there began a phase of gradual public acceptance and, for certain cases, incorporation of the cryptocurrencies.
As an illustration of the saying that goes “if you can’t beat them, join them”, in February of 2019 JP Morgan announced the development of its own criptomoneda: JPM Coin, a stablecoin that maintains parity with the u.s. dollar.
On Bitcoin, the company highlighted recently, during the crisis of the Covid-19, that “resists adversities better than other traditional markets”.
