Goldman Sach’s CEO Lloyd Blankfein says he is not good at Bitcoin, but he is open to cryptocurrency.
In an interview with Bloomberg at Goldman Sach’s New York Sustainable Innovation Forum, the CEO said he has a “feeling of discomfort” over Bitcoin, which he has with everything new. His remarks were based on questions about his feelings about Bitcoin futures, as recently suggested by the CME Group.
“Over the years, I’ve learned that there are many things that seem pretty good that I do not love,” continued Blankfein.
“Maybe in the new world, something of consensus is supported … If we went to the future, and Bitcoins was successful, I could explain how it is a natural development of money.”
The banker’s comments come after a comment last month on his Twitter account, where Blankfein “still thinks of Bitcoin” and that he does not “approve” or “reject” it. The comment was unlike its counterpart JPMorgan Chase, CEO Jamin Dimon, who now – as is known – is called Bitcoin “fraud”.
In conclusion, Blankfein said that he has no investment in crypto currency.
