Speaking at JPMorgan’s annual investor day, CEO Jamie Dimon hinted at possible use cases for the bank’s newly launched digital asset JPM Coin. While Dimon has been an outspoken critic of Bitcoin, calling it “a scam” and investors “stupid”, he now says that JPM Coin could be used one day to make consumer purchases – just like Bitcoin, Tron, Dash, Litecoin and several other cryptocurrencies.
“‘JP Morgan Coin could be internal, could be commercial, it could one day be consumer,’ Dimon, 62, said during a question-and-answer session.”
