In terms of blockchain speakers, Amber Baldet offers unparalleled insight. “The work I did at JP Morgan exposed me to a breadth of perspectives,” she told Glamour for its feature, “Cryptocurrency is Not Just a Boys Club.” Those perspectives come from working with investment banks, central banks, Fortune 100s, corporations, startups, cypherpunks, hackers, and hardcore blockchain developers. “I have a relatively unique view on where we are going.”
