The JPMorgan head says he thinks BTC is “worthless” even as his company adds new offerings around crypto.

This episode is sponsored by NYDIG.

Ah, Jamie Dimon. One of the longest duration skeptics of bitcoin, and one of the most consistently wrong from a market perspective. Yesterday, the JPMorgan Chase CEO added new material to his anti-bitcoin cannon and Bitcoin Twitter was extremely quick to respond. Indeed, part of that response was colored by general bullishness as bitcoin experienced another surge up past $57,000. NLW explores Bitcoin Twitter’s reaction to Dimon’s comments and looks at why many think the current rally is being driven by institutions, not retail. 


NYDIG, the institutional-grade platform for bitcoin, is making it possible for thousands of banks who have trusted relationships with hundreds of millions of customers, to offer Bitcoin. Learn more at
