Bitcoinの主任批評家、投資銀行のJP Morgan Chase、Jamie Dimon - Jamie Dimon - 昨年10月、Bitchinを買った人たちは以前にブロックチェーンベースのバリュー交換システムを詐欺と呼んだ後に愚かだと宣言 - その後、この1月は、 「Bitcoinが詐欺だと言っているのは残念だ」「Blockchainは本当に、円とドルのような暗号を持つことができます」と、暗号問題についての彼の帽子をはぐくみ、決して再び暗号にコメントするつもりはないと誓った。他の著名な機関の指導者がクリプトの最も大きな批評家としての役割を果たしてきたことが明らかになりました。
Cryptocurrencyの最もボーカルの批評家の今空席のタイトルのために不注意に批評家のリストは、議員から銀行の役員まで、現職の金融システムのエリートに住んでいます - これはほとんど驚きではありません。
「多くの理由から、あなたのデジタルウォレットの暗号資産は、将来のお金となる可能性は低いです...しかし、それはそれらを却下することを意味するものではありません。 彼らのコア技術はすでに影響を与えています。 暗号化された資産を規制テントに持ち込むことで、公共の利益につながるイノベーションを促進する可能性があります」03 / 02 / 2018
「インドはクリプトクロースの合法性を考慮しておらず、インドは「違法行為の資金調達や支払いシステムの一部としてこれらの暗号資産の使用を排除するためのすべての措置を講じる」と主張し続けた。 blockchain技術。 02 / 01 / 2018
Who currently occupies the Prime Minister hot seat in the United Kingdom, is more concerned about how criminals can use cryptocurrencies to move and store value gained from illegal activities internationally.
May had this to say about Bitcoin in an interview with Bloomberg earlier this year:
「Cryptocurrenciesのような ビットコイン, we should be looking at these very seriously precisely because of the way they can be used, particularly by criminals,”
Former chairman of the United States Federal Reserve, who apparently has no faith in the longevity of Cryptocurrency and views it as a mechanism to bypass federal regulation stated:
「Bitcoin is an attempt to replace fiat currency and evade regulation and government intervention. I don’t think that’s going to be a success.” – 10/17/2017
Current Federal Reserve chairwoman echoes the sentiments of her predecessor and further states that “It is not a stable store of value, and it doesn't constitute legal tender,” during a press conference in Washington.
She went on to say:
「It [Bitcoin] is a highly speculative asset, and the Fed doesn’t really play any regulatory role with respect to Bitcoin other than assuring that banking organizations that we do supervise are attentive that they’re appropriately managing any interactions they have with participants in that market.” 12/13/2017
One of the world's most famous billionaires and Co-founder of the global technology giant, Microsoft, went from saying “Bitcoin is exciting because it shows how cheap it can be. Bitcoin is better than the currency in that you don’t have to be physically in the same place and, of course, for large transactions, currency can get pretty inconvenient.” back in 2014 to doing an almost complete about-turn this year.
He lit up media outlets and had crypto related forums abuzz with debate when he said:
「The main feature of cryptocurrencies is their anonymity. I don't think this is a good thing. The Governments ability to find money laundering and tax evasion and terrorist funding is a good thing. Right now cryptocurrencies are used for buying fentanyl and other drugs so it is a rare technology that has caused deaths in a fairly direct way.” 02/27/2018
The Oracle of Omaha, a billionaire investor, and Chief executive officer of Berkshire Hathaway Inc. Warren Buffet, who notoriously stays away from technology-based investments because he admittedly doesn't understand technology, seems to have understood enough to chime in regarding the meteoric rise of crypto, stating:
「People get excited from big price movements, and Wall Street accommodates … You can’t value ビットコイン because it’s not a value-producing asset. It's a real bubble.” 10/29/2017
Last but definitely not least, Mr. Buffet's second in command at Berkshire Hathaway Inc. Vice Chairman Charlie Munger, who holds no punches when expressing his distaste for Bitcoin and the general cryptocurrency market first said “I never considered for one second having anything to do with it. I detested it the moment it was raised,” at the Daily Journal Corp annual meeting in Los Angeles on 02/14/2018 “It’s just disgusting. Bitcoin is noxious poison.” he went on to say.
That proved only to be the beginning of the vitriol Mr. Munger would spew Bitcoin's way as he called Bitcoin immoral, saying “Suppose you could make a lot of money trading freshly harvested baby brains. Would you do it, or would you say that’s immoral? You wouldn’t trade them, would you? It’s too awful a concept. Well, to me Bitcoin is almost as bad.” he told Yahoo Finance on 07/05/2018.
WHY ALL THE HATE?
Well, the negative rhetoric hurled at cryptocurrencies by financial powerhouses like Warren Buffet and Janet Yellen have done very little, if anything at all, to stem the growing positive sentiment of Joe Average and his global counterparts who are raising crypto uptake numbers and enthusiastically trading and holding various digital assets.
What makes blockchain and cryptocurrencies appealing is the transparency, convenience, and control they offer over legacy financial systems, which have a central point of failure. The comments from members of the incumbent system may stem from a lack of understanding or that they understand the threat this revolutionary new technology poses.
A recent Gartner survey reporting that only 22% of global Chief Information officers actually have a crypto related plan in place for their respective firms' growth plans, suggests that a degree of ignorance may be in play.
Whether it's ignorance, lack of faith or a threatened reaction to new technology. It is clear that, short of a total implosion of the entire crypto market, blockchain and crypto assets will dilute the influence of many a financial institution and possibly leave fiat virtually valueless. Where would that leave the Mungers and Jaitley's of this world?
