Ep. 151. Interview: Amber Baldet

16min listen

This week, Sam Maule talks to the wonderful Amber Baldet, Executive Director and Blockchain Programme Lead at J.P. Morgan.

We have a fascinating interview for you this week as Sam talks to Amber Baldet, who leads the J.P Morgan team developing Quorum, the open source code based on Ethereum that's designed to address the challenges of blockchain adoption in financial services.

We hear how Amber and the team have approached developing an open source code base from a highly regulated institution and how they've approached the blockchain community.

We also talk about the importance of a transformation agenda and getting to the heart of clients' pain points. Plus, where does Amber rub shoulders with Vitalik Buterin and Brian Armstrong?

Amber explains how and why "actual adoption of projects is what we really need what it comes to blockchain right now."

So what distinguishes DLT from machine learning, AI and data science, and why are network coordination and marketplace understanding so important?
