JPMorgan entrera dans Bitcoin à un moment donné

Le coprésident confirme que „JPMorgan entrera dans Bitcoin à un moment donné“.

Bien que la demande de ses propres clients ne soit pas encore là, Daniel Pinto est convaincu que JPMorgan investira dans le bitcoin „à un moment donné“.

L’influente banque d’investissement américaine JPMorgan Chase devra tôt ou tard investir dans Bitcoin (BTC), selon son propre coprésident actuel.

S’adressant à CNBC aujourd’hui (vendredi), l’exécutif a déclaré que l’entrée de JPMorgan et le moment de son entrée dans Bitcoin dépendront avant tout de la Crypto Trader demande des clients de la banque d’investissement. Bien que cette demande soit actuellement insuffisante, M. Pinto s’est dit confiant :

„Si, au fil du temps, elle devient une classe d’actifs utilisée par tous les investisseurs et gestionnaires d’actifs, nous devrons alors y entrer à un moment donné. Je ne vois pas encore de demande pour cela, mais je suis sûr que cela viendra un jour“.

Les derniers commentaires de Pinto arrivent à un moment où l’on entend des rumeurs sur l’intérêt croissant des banques d’investissement pour Bitcoin. Par exemple, Troy Rohrbaugh, le responsable des marchés internationaux chez JPMorgan, a admis lors d’une conférence interne de Zoom que de plus en plus d’employés s’interrogent sur les projets de leur entreprise concernant Bitcoin. À cet égard, Pinto serait ouvert à la cryptocarte, la principale monnaie du marché, depuis un certain temps.

Cet intérêt soudain est cependant ironique dans un sens, car le PDG Jamie Dimon est en fait connu pour son attitude dédaigneuse envers Bitcoin

En 2017, par exemple, ce dernier avait encore qualifié le leader du marché de la cryptographie de „canular“ qui pouvait au mieux être comparé à la „manie des tulipes“. À cette époque, le Bitcoin était encore à 3 500 dollars US, puis quelques mois plus tard, la cryptocarte a atteint son ancien record de 20 000 dollars US.

Bien qu’un effondrement prolongé ait suivi, Bitcoin a réussi à dépasser la capitalisation boursière de JPMorgan en novembre 2020, lorsqu’elle a créé sa propre valeur marchande de 352 milliards de dollars. Peu avant cela, Dimon avait de nouveau critiqué la cryptocouronne.

De leur côté, les analystes de JPMorgan ont envoyé des signaux mitigés ces derniers mois. En octobre 2020, par exemple, certains experts de la firme avaient prédit un doublement, voire un triplement à long terme du prix du bitcoin, ce à quoi leurs collègues John Normand et Federico Manicardi ont rétorqué un peu plus tard que le bitcoin était la couverture la moins fiable de toutes.

Blackrock CEO changes opinion on Bitcoin

Blackrock CEO changes opinion on Bitcoin – BTC questions US dollar

During a conversation with Mark Carney, a former governor of the Bank of England, at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), BlackRock CEO Larry Fink raised the possibility that Bitcoin could eventually become a BitQT global market, CNBC reports.

„Bitcoin has caught the attention and imagination of many people. Still untested, rather small market compared to other markets. You see these huge movements every day … it is a thin market. Can it develop into a global market? Possibly“.

Already in October 2017 Fink had called Bitcoin the „Money Laundering Index“:

Bitcoin only shows you how great the demand for money laundering is in the world. That is all it is.

In November 2018 he claimed that the largest crypto currency was not legitimate:

I don’t feel that any government will allow it if it doesn’t know where the money is going.

Fink’s turn at Bitcoin came after Blackrock CIO Rick Rieder said that the world’s largest crypto currency could „to a large extent“ replace gold.

BTC becomes the financial product of the big

The $7.43 trillion asset manager already has a stake in Bitcoin through the business intelligence company MicroStrategy, which holds 38,250 BTC. Blackrock Fund Advisors owns 1,072,819 shares, which are currently valued at $179.2 million.

We have seen a similar career path from the CEO of JP Morgan. For years, he has accused Bitcoin of fraud or the like. In the meantime, JP Morgan recommends to hold part of the portfolio in BTC.

This trend will not abate. More and more people understand the importance of the rare asset. Although there will be short to medium term speculation even with the big ones, the direction is clear.

Bitcoin vs. US dollar

According to Fink, the BTC and other crypto currencies also question the future of the US dollar as the world’s reserve currency.

He believes that Bitcoin makes the US dollar „less relevant“ to international owners.

This is mainly due to differences in monetary policy. At Bitcoin, the supply of new BTCs is becoming increasingly scarce and the maximum number is limited. With fiat currencies there is no maximum limit and more and more are being created.

Bitcoin does not have to compete against the US dollar. The strong inflation of the US dollar will automatically flush people into BTC. Prepare yourself for the digital money revolution.

Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto is said to have been a Londoner according to the latest analysis

A new perspective on an old investigation may shed light on the whereabouts of Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of Bitcoin (BTC).

At the very least, it should shed light on his whereabouts while he was working on Bitcoin.

A recent report has found that London was the most likely place where Satoshi Nakamoto worked on Crypto Bull scam between 2008 and 2010.

Was the inventor of Bitcoin Londoner?

The author of the report, Doncho Karaivanov, reviewed several factors to justify the conclusion. These included an analysis of the time stamps of Satoshi’s published materials, his use of regional colloquialisms and spelling, and the fact that the Times‘ headline embedded in the Genesis block was specific to the English print version of the magazine.

The idea that Satoshi was British is not new. Hundreds of journalists, sniffer dogs and investigators have thoroughly examined the traces of the activities of the creator of Bitcoin and searched the Internet for clues that lead to its origins. But this latest report in The Chain Bulletin provides additional information to previous analyses. Among other things, it highlights the likelihood that Satoshi must have been referring to the print edition of the Times when he encoded the now famous January 3, 2009 headline in the Genesis block of Bitcoin.

Only the print edition of the Times, which is distributed in England, used the headline „Chancellor on the edge of second bailout for banks“, while the online edition included the Chancellor’s name in the headline. The US edition of the newspaper did not contain the story at all.

Karaivanov analyzed reader data, which showed that about 43% of the Times‘ readership is based in London. This data, combined with the fact that London is the largest financial center in the world, makes it very likely that Satoshi could have lived in London between 2008 and 2010.
Time stamps can provide information about Satoshi’s stay

Karaivanov’s analysis of time-stamped material posted by Satoshi (including postings on Bitcointalk, emails sent to the early developers of Bitcoin, and commits to the Bitcoin repository on SourceForge) provides additional evidence that Satoshi may have resided in the GMT (UK) time zone. However, he concedes that Satoshi’s pattern of posting could also reflect someone who lived in the EST (US East Coast) or PST (US West Coast) time zones.

Among the time zones that were completely excluded were those that included Japan (where Satoshi is said to have come from according to his P2P Foundation profile) and Australia, which, according to Karaivanov, „was not even remotely possible“ unless Satoshi was „a vampire“.
Is the search for Satoshi dangerous for Bitcoin?

The statement that Satoshi probably lived in London between 2008 and 2010 is not relevant to everyone. For example, a Reddit user commented on the findings that Satoshi was in London while working on Bitcoin with the following words:

In another breaking news story, Santa Claus may have been living at the North Pole while working on toys for infants.

Moreover, not everyone in the Bitcoin industry is interested in uncovering Satoshi’s origins or identity. On the contrary, some even consider it counterproductive for Bitcoin and its entire movement.

One person is always a target, and opponents might take advantage of that to try to possibly undermine the whole idea behind Bitcoin. In addition, Adam Back, CEO of Blockstream, noted that it would be unwise for Satoshi to reveal himself publicly. Blockstream’s position is that Satoshi’s identity should not be speculated upon, as the activity „violates the ideals of Cypherpunk.
