JP Morgan Chase (NYSE: JPM) CEO James Dimon said on Thursday that investors should be wary of popular digital currencies.
“I do not want to act as a defender of bitcoin. Just be careful, “- said Dimon in an interview with CNBC.
In September, Dimon called bitcoin fraud, and then repeated this opinion in January. Despite the fact that some representatives of Wall Street recognized digital currencies, Dimon, as well as the CEO and Chairman of the Board of Directors Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRKa) Warren Buffett remain among the harshest critics of digital currencies.
Buffett, who gave a joint interview with Dimon, said: “I set high standards. I do not know if Jamie’s standards exceed mine or not. ” In May, Buffett told shareholders that bitcoin is a rat poison in the square.
