Likewise, JPMorgan Chase's Chairman and CEO and former New York Federal Reserve Bank chairman Jamie Dimon has long been a figurehead for Bitcoin haters.
The infidel group appeared together earlier this week on CNBC's "Squawk Box," where the question was asked, "Which one of you hates Bitcoin more?"
