Jamie Dimon fished discussing online currency
Jamie Dimon, chairman and CEO of JPMorgan Chase, said he is no longer going to discuss bitcoin after his comments last month that the digital currency was a “fraud” caused quite the stir on Wall Street and Silicon Valley.
But I’m not going to talk about bitcoin anymore,” said Dimon in response to a question during the bank’s third-quarter earnings call with media on Thursday.
“We are open-minded for digital currencies that are properly controlled and regulated,” she said, also discussing the potential merits of blockchain, the technology behind bitcoin.
Dimon told an investor conference last month that bitcoin was a fraud “worse than tulip bulbs.”
His comments ran contrary to many on Wall Street who have begun to embrace, or at least experiment, with bitcoin and the blockchain technology it utilizes.
