JP Morgan Chase Welcome Cryptocurrency Companies

jp Morgan Bitcoin

JP Morgan Chase is reportedly now accepting clients involved in cryptocurrency. Chase has been a vocal critic of both Bitcoin and cryptocurrency for years. Many suspected that they were quietly investing in Bitcoin while discrediting the currency in public statements. I remember when Chase actually penalized customers with fees when they used a Chase debit to purchase Bitcoin.

Coinbase has reportedly become a Chase customer. By embracing such a high profile cryptocurrency business, Chase seems to be sending a welcome message to future cryptocurrency investment.

The Bitcoin Halving

The much anticipated halving of Bitcoin has occurred. As with the previous 2 halvings, this did not result in a price increase. In spite of this history many Bitcoin enthusiast expected to see a spike in price. During the previous halving, it took almost a year for the Bitcoin price to make a drastic move upwards.

As of now miners will be earning less and Bitcoin has a lower inflation than gold. What happens with the price remains to be seen.
