The Bank for International Settlements has noted the increased interest in cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, while observing that such currencies could be issued by central banks. However, it notes that not enough has been done to assess the risks associated with digital currencies, including how resilient cryptocurrencies issued by central banks would be to cyberattacks. Meanwhile, JP Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon has referred to bitcoin as a "fraud", saying that any JP Morgan employee found to be trading in it would be sacked on the spot.
