In the internal report of JP Morgan, it is asserted that the cryptocurrencies will not disappear anywhere, they will prosper, and investors will continue to invest in crypto-currencies, attracted by decentralized technologies, anonymity and peer-to-peer networks. This is reported by Smartethereum.

The ecosystem of blockchain will develop further, for a long time, and all existing gaps in the technology of blockchain will be eliminated, JP Morgan believes, according to the report.

The statements in the internal report contrast with the actions of JP Morgan, which last week banned the use of its credit cards for the purchase of cryptocurrency.

JP Morgan's reports, most likely, are not a change in the bank's attitude to crypto-currencies, however, they show that JPMorgan recognizes great potential for crypto-currencies.

In February this year, analysts of JPMorgan Chase presented a report, according to which crypto-currencies can contribute to the diversification global portfolio of securities.

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has sued New Yorker  and Veritaseum-related companies that have been caught by the agency in conducting an unregistered ICO with signs of fraud. It is reported by Cointelegraph.

According to documents published on the network, the SEC intends to hold Reggie Middleton accountable and immediately freeze the assets of Veritaseum Inc. and Veritaseum LLC.

The Commission claims that the defendants raised about $ 14.8 million through an initial coin offering (ICO) in 2017 - early 2018. At the same time, many investors were misled, as the company distorted information about the conditions of the token sale and deliberately hid some significant details.

The American regulator claims that the project still has about $ 8 million of illegally raised funds. According to the SEC, these assets must be frozen immediately.

Amid this news, the Veritaseum (VERI) rate has fallen by 70%. Now the coin is trading near the $ 5 mark, although at the beginning of 2018 its rate was approaching $ 500.

Veritaseum was created as a financial p2p platform, involving the movement of capital without traditional intermediaries. Also, VERI was positioned as a utility token for use in consulting services and access to various research works.

In 2017, Veritaseum blockchain startup fell victim to hackers, having lost $ 8.4 million from ICO investors.
