Jamie Dimon is pessimistic about the long-term future of crypto-currencies
Jamie Dimon has said that it is unlikely that all crypto-currencies reach a global adoption and conventional, claiming that the governments of the world do not allow.

Yes for the technology Blockchain, but not for crypto-currencies
The argument of Dimon is that the technology Blockchain will grow and will be used extensively, but that the decentralized nature of crypto-currencies will not last, adding : “The technology Blockchain will be fine and well used. It can be used to circulate the currency, but it will be only us$. “In September 2017, at a banking conference, Dimon called Bitcoin “fraud” and stated that it dismisses any employee of JPMorgan, which will carry out transactions in crypto-currencies on the accounts of the company. It is important to note that in 2017, several governments around the world have announced that they intend to set up a crypto-currency. Others, such as Venezuela, have already done so.
