Cryptomarket consolidates in tight trading range

On a positive note, the market did manage to stay well above the low of $762 billion. The two largest coins BTC and ETH, which together hold nearly 60% of the crypto market, will need to take the lead to pull the crypto market back out of the doldrums.
Ex-Celsius board member joins regulatory desk JPMorgan
Former Celsius executive Aaron Iovine has joined JPMorgan Chase & Co. He is doing so as executive director of digital assets regulatory policy. This is notable given that recently the bank’s chief executive officer, Jamie Dimon, labeled cryptocurrencies as frauds and decentralized ponzi schemes.
Iovine was previously head of policy and regulation at the now defunct crypto lender Celcius. Iovine left Celcius in September after an eight-month stint.
However, this is not the first time Jamie Dimon has spoken negatively about Bitcoin and other crypto currencies. For example, in 2017 he stated that Bitcoin is “scam” and even once labeled Bitcoin as gold for idiots.
So this is hypocrisy at its finest, Meanwhile, customers can invest in some crypto currencies through JPMorgan’s trading platform. JPMorgan is a true bankster who, like a fox, may be able to lose its hair, but not its stripes.
