SXSW Episode: Amber Baldet, Blockchain Program Lead at JPMorgan, on the Potential Clash Between Blockchains and the Right to Be Forgotten

Amber Baldet, JPMorgan Chase blockchain program lead, talks about what she was discussing at SXSW with Hyperledger executive director Brian Behlendorf and what themes she heard at the Ethereum Community Conference in Paris. She talks about privacy in financial transactions, how “immutable” blockchains might conflict with a new EU privacy law granting people the “right to be forgotten.” And we briefly touch on her work with Jalak Jobanputra’s new diversity-focused group Collective Future.
