Jamie Dimon is having second thoughts about bitcoin.

CEO and Chairman of JPMorgan Chase Jamie Dimon has said he regrets criticizing bitcoin and calling the popular cryptocurrency a fraud in the past, but remains uninterested in digital currencies.

However, he distanced himself from those comments today in an interview with United States television station Fox, saying: "I regret making them". "You can have cryptodollars in yen and stuff like that".

In September, Dimon denounced the bitcoin cryptocurrency as a fraud, and said it was bound to fail. The 61-year-old CEO said Tuesday he's still not very interested in the subject, and thinks that government intervention may eventually hamper bitcoin's growth and acceptance.

"... I just have a different opinion than other people".

After his comments earned him a position as one of the more reviled figures among the crypto community, Dimon claimed he was "not going to talk about Bitcoin anymore".
