Ah, Jamie Dimon. One of the longest duration skeptics of bitcoin, and one of the most consistently wrong from a market perspective. Yesterday, the JPMorgan Chase CEO added new material to his anti-bitcoin cannon and Bitcoin Twitter was extremely quick to respond. Indeed, part of that response was colored by general bullishness as bitcoin experienced another surge up past $57,000. NLW explores Bitcoin Twitter’s reaction to Dimon’s comments and looks at why many think the current rally is being driven by institutions, not retail.
