Moving the Chain is an ongoing series from Blockchain WTF that shines a spotlight on folks who are making an impact in the world of blockchain technology and cryptocurrency.
J.P. Morgan executive, Amber Baldet, is in charge of the team that is currently developing the blockchain-based Quorom. Quorum is an enterprise-focused version of Ethereum, which is designed to improve things like privacy and performance for large corporations. Baldet was also instrumental in organizing the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA), a group of businesses that collaborate and experiment with Ethereum-based blockchain technology.
The 35-year- old was recently featured in Fortune’s 40 under 40, and she was cited as someone who “bridges the divide between Wall Street and the crypto set.” Amber Baldet is one of the most high-profile and respected names in the blockchain community today.
On other companies using Quorom – “What I hope is that other groups will solve their problems with Quorum. Actual adoption of projects is what we need.”
The banking executive certainly has some eclectic interests. According to her personal website, 1930’s jazz, smashing the patriarchy, digital privacy, and whiskey are just a few of her favorite things. Who doesn’t enjoy a little Jack Daniel’s every now and then?
