A spot Bitcoin ETF will bring fresh money to the market, but it will not change a fundamental reality: Bitcoin liquidity is declining.
JPMorgan Chase News
JPMorgan Chase is a multinational banking and financial services firm based in New York City in the United States. It is the largest bank in the world in terms of market capitalization and serves millions of customers globally. In 2017, JPMorgan Chase announced it was working on a blockchain-based platform for processing payments. The platform, called Quorum, is a private permissioned blockchain based on Ethereum and is designed to be used by large enterprises. Quorum is notable for its focus on privacy and security and includes features such as data encryption and voting mechanisms that allow users to control who can access the network. In August 2020, JPMorgan Chase sold Quorum to blockchain software company ConsenSys.
JPMorgan Chase has also been involved in other blockchain initiatives, such as the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA). The EEA is a consortium of enterprises working together to develop enterprise-grade applications on the Ethereum blockchain. JPMorgan Chase is a founding member of the consortium and has worked on projects such as Quorum with other member companies. In 2021, JPMorgan Chase launched its own cryptocurrency, JPM Coin. The cryptocurrency is designed for use in institutional payments, and each coin is backed by one U.S. dollar. Because JPMorgan Chase is one of the largest financial institutions in the world, its involvement in blockchain technology highlights the potential for blockchain in traditional finance.
