JPM Coin

JPMorgan Chase held their annual investor day yesterday. The company’s CEO, Jamie Dimon, was involved in a question-and-answer session and answered a few questions about the bank’s latest venture, the JPM Coin. The world’s first bank coin was originally meant for cross-border remittances, but it seems the bank may have other ideas for it down the road.

JPM Coin for Consumer Use?

During his Q&A session, Dimon explained that he believes the coin could be used in various sectors of the financial industry. “JP Morgan Coin could be internal, could be commercial, it could one day be consumer,” said the CEO.


Two weeks ago, the US major bank announced the news of its JPM coin. It was a shock to much of Wall Street and the cryptocurrency community. Dimon has been a long-time critic of Bitcoin and has even gone as far as calling the digital currency a fraud.

When the news was released, critics began immediately chiming in—including Ripple’s CEO Brad Garlinghouse. Garlinghouse feels that if every major bank were to adopt its own bank coin, it would make the world’s financial system far more flawed than the current one using SWIFT. The new JPM coin would be in direct competition with Ripple and its underlying cryptocurrency XRP. Ripple, via XRP, does exactly what JPMorgan is trying to accomplish.

Now, JPMorgan wants to expand the coin’s use far beyond what was originally released. From the original announcement, JPM coin was designed to settle transactions between clients of its wholesale international payments business. The blockchain, they believe, will speed up this process.

Currently, the digital currency is being tested in a trial run with a few corporate clients, as well as internally in the bank. At this time, consumer use of JPM coin seems in the idea stages, but if major banks start making their own stable coins, the idea could be pushed further.
