Former JP Morgan Asia CEO arrested by China: Zerohedge

A continuation of the Bloomberg article? Just one day after the FBI issues arrest warrants for 5 Chinese military officials, Caixin reports that Fang Fang - the former CEO of JPMorgan Asia - has been arrested in Hong Kong by the Independent Commission Against Corruption (or anti-graft agency).

JPMorgan's Biggest Concern Is That Bitcoin Will Succeed Via JPMorgan CIO Michael Cembalest, After digesting all the hyperbole and the pessimism, my biggest concern is not that Bitcoin will fail, but that it or one of its many virtual currency competitors will one day succeed. In the extreme, Bitcoin may lead to economic activity moving from the…

Zerohedge incredulous DOJ goes for 24 year old bitcoin exchange CEO, instead of JP Morgan, or HSBC CEOs where money laundering is encouraged and rewarded, Hypocrisy

The US crackdown on Bitcoin has been long in coming, with ebbs and flows of enforcement as regulators have been unsure exactly how to proceed with dismantling the digital fiat alternative. This morning the ebb became a rising tide, after prosecutors announced charges against two men operating Bitcoin exchange businesses for attempting to sell $1 million worth of Bitcoin to users of the underground black market website Silk Road, which was shut down by authorities in September.
