Dimon spoke Monday at an occasion facilitated by the Institute of International Finance.
In spite of Dimon’s analysis of bitcoin, JPMorgan has started offering customers admittance to six digital currency items.
Other set up organizations including Goldman Sachs and Citigroup have hoped to grow their impression in the space. Goldman permits specific customers to exchange crypto through a subordinate item and Citigroup is hoping to start exchanging digital currency through an asset.
