PMorgan: Bitcoin Must Evolve, Blockchain’s Not a Threat

It may surprise some people to learn that JPMorgan Chase is invested in the blockchain.

He said that while the industry may say blockchain’s good and bitcoin’s bad, that’s now how JPMorgan, the top US bank based on assets, sees the world. “We all believe in blockchain good. I wouldn’t go as far to say cryptocurrencies bad. I would say and cryptocurrencies have issues.”
