JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon recalled his skepticism about digital assets during a speech in Congress before the Financial Services Committee of the US House of Representatives.
“My personal advice to people: stay away from cryptocurrencies. This does not mean that JPMorgan customers will not be able to invest in bitcoin. I don’t smoke marijuana, but if it’s legalized nationally, I’m not going to get in anyone’s way,” Dimon said.
Earlier, the CEO of JPMorgan repeatedly criticized cryptocurrencies, promised to fire employees trading digital assets and called bitcoin holders stupid.
Recall that in early May, Dimon acknowledged the interest of the bank’s clients in digital gold, but stressed his remaining skepticism about the asset.
At the end of April, JPMorgan, together with DBS and Temasek Investment group from Singapore, announced the development of an industry platform based on DLT technology for interbank payments, trading and settlements in foreign currency
