In 2017, JPMorgan’s Chief Executive Officer Jamie Dimon called Bitcoin a “fraud” and threatened to fire any employee caught trading the crypto. The firm then saw the value in bitcoin and said that even though they may not like Bitcoin, they still saw an opportunity to utilize BTC to score banking relationships with the current growing market.

Last year, the $2.6 trillion (Net worth) bank said it would be using crypto to help speed up corporate payments through a token dubbed JPM Coin.
