JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon is not a fan of bitcoin, and he reiterated his sentiments on Monday by calling the cryptocurrency “useless,” while comparing trading it to smoking cigarettes.

“I personally think bitcoin is worthless,” Dimon said while speaking at a virtual event organized by the Institute of International Finance. “But I don’t want to be a spokesperson for it, I don’t care. It doesn’t matter to me.”
Meanwhile, CoinDesk reported that there is a growing bullish sentiment after bitcoin price broke above $57,000 on Monday. BTC is up about 3% over the past 24 hours compared to alternative cryptocurrencies, which adds to its outperformance.
Some analysts forecast a return to an all-time high near $63,000 this quarter, which has seen a steady increase.
“The cryptocurrency rally is impressive because it has been caused by a broad risk-off environment in both equities and bonds, with crypto markets separating from equity markets,” Coinbase wrote in a newsletter to institutional clients last week. “We are seeing that BTC is clearly leading this market as bitcoin dominance (BTC market cap relative to total crypto market cap) reaches multi-month highs.”
