Happy birthday, bitcoin! Jamie Dimon still doesn't care about you. 

Speaking at an Axios conference in Los Angeles this week, the JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM) - Get JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM) Report CEO was asked what he thought about the blockchain-powered cryptocurrency. To which he replied, "I didn't want to be the spokesman against bitcoin. I don't really give a sh*t - that's the point, OK?"

The timing of the comments were interesting because bitcoin this week turned 10 years old.

Dimon has been a vocal critical of the cryptocurrency for years, saying in 2014 that it was a "terrible store of value." In recent years Dimon has said that it would not survive and referred to it as a fraud. 

Bitcoin has declined more than 55% year to date, but was gaining 0.52% to $6,316 on Wednesday, Oct. 31.
