One of the newly opened positions, a blockchain platform software engineer in Jersey City, New Jersey, seeks experts specializing in blockchain security technologies, proof-of-stake algorithms, as well as experience with major cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum.
JPMorgan believes El Salvador’s bitcoin adoption could pose a challenge for the country.
Earlier, JPMorgan expressed concern with El Salvador’s decision to authorize (Bitcoin (BTC) as an optional legal tender in the country. The banking firm noted that passing the Bitcoin law could pose a challenge for Bitcoin as well as the Central American country itself. Analysts of JPMorgan noted that Bitcoin’s daily trading volume hits anywhere between $40 to $50 billion. Analysts further added that a large port of BTC remains illiquid, with over 90% not changing hands in a year. The banking giant said this illiquidity and the volume is “potentially a significant limitation on its potential as a medium of exchange.”
