You can’t make this stuff up, folks. It was literally less than two years ago – September 2017, to be exact – when JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon called Bitcoin was a fraud and declared that he would fire anyone trading it for being stupid. Fast-forward to February 2019, and they’re announcing JPM Coin, their own proprietary stablecoin.
They weren’t admitting that they were wrong, but at least they’re smart enough to join the blockchain revolution rather than try to wage a losing battle against it. Now, if you can believe it, they’ve gone a step further and predicted the death of the U.S. dollar as the world’s reserve currency.
It’s a stunning admission from a bank that has derived all of its wealth, influence, and power from the dominance of the dollar. Believe me when I tell you that the executives at JPMorgan are no dummies – they know exactly what’s coming, and they’re actively preparing for that change.
In a shocking report, JPMorgan Chase strategist Craig Cohen started by explaining that the U.S. dollar has been the world’s dominant reserve currency for almost a century. Then he dropped a bombshell, predicting that the dollar could lose its status as the world’s reserve currency, and even hinted that Asia would take the reins away from America as the world’s economic leader.
Cohen’s got a compelling point here: The Asian economic zone as a whole already accounts for two-thirds of global economic growth and 50% of global GDP. The sheer purchasing power of the region has boosted the number of non-dollar transactions, and this trend will undoubtedly continue until the dollar’s importance erodes completely.

What can individual investors do to prepare for these imminent changes? Cohen advises not being overweight in U.S. dollars and diversifying – a recommendation I wholeheartedly agree with. I also suggest doing what JPMorgan is doing: adding to your blockchain technology investments, like I’ve been doing with ICOx Innovations Inc. (TSX.V:ICOX, OTCQB:ICOX).
Sure, you can invest in the crypto coins themselves, but the smart money is betting on the companies that build the blockchains and tokens for these companies. It’s just like in the precious metals sector: you can bet on a gold miner, or you can bet on the company that sells the picks and shovels to that gold miner.
That’s precisely what ICOx does: they build the infrastructure so that established companies can roll out their own branded blockchains and cryptocurrencies. Believe me, this isn’t something that companies can easily do themselves – they need experts who can build the foundation while also maintaining compliance with all the regulations involved.

ICOx already has a number of large-scale projects, but perhaps their biggest one is Cathio, a subsidiary that specializes in providing payment, donation, and money-transfer solutions to the global Catholic community – that’s more than 1.3 billion potential users.
Representatives from Cathio will be in attendance at this year’s Napa Institute Summer Conference, where many of the world’s most prominent Catholic and Christian thinkers will be participating. It will be a prime opportunity for Cathio and ICOx to demonstrate how they’ll empower the Catholic economy to save money while achieving greater transparency in its financial transactions.
Most importantly, their attendance at this prestigious conference will allow Cathio and ICOx to connect with the Catholic leadership on a deep level and share the vision of the Cathio platform.
It’s yet another sign that the blockchain is on its way up, while the dollar is on its way out.
