Meanwhile, JP Morgan, whose CEO Jamie Dimon once labeled bitcoin a fraud, acknowledges in the note that “cryptocurrencies derive value not only because they serve as stores of wealth but also due to their utility as means of payment.”
What do you think of JP Morgan’s latest bitcoin assessment? Tell us what you think in the comments section below.
At the time of writing, the bitcoin market capitalization was at 2.2 billion while the value of one BTC was just above ,000.

Although JP Morgan believes that new millennials will be key to bitcoin’s future success, the increasing adoption of bitcoin by large corporations suggests the cryptocurrency might close the gap with gold much faster. Bitcoin has surged by almost 15% from the time Square announced its bitcoin purchase on Oct. 8. Immediately after Paypal’s cryptocurrency announcement, the digital currency breached the ,000 mark.

The financial institution’s assessment comes as the digital currency continues to see increasing adoption by institutional investors and an embrace by corporations like payments giant Paypal.
The financial giant adds that as “more economic agents accept cryptocurrencies as a means of payment in the future, the higher their utility and value.”
According to a report, JP Morgan estimates the “physical gold market is worth .6 trillion, which includes assets held within gold ETFs.” The financial giant deduces that for bitcoin to catch up with gold market value, “the cryptocurrency would have to surge 10x from current levels.”
However, with more corporations expected to follow in the footsteps of Square and Paypal by acquiring and holding large quantities of bitcoin, the resulting shrinking supply will continue to push the price upwards.
