JPMorgan’s Blockchain Lead Quits to Kickstart Her Own Startup

Amber Baldet, a key executive of JPMorgan’s blockchain business, is stepping down for greener pastures.

She is reportedly leaving to launch her own firm on the heels of reports suggesting that JPMorgan may be spinning off its enterprise blockchain project dubbed Quorum, which Baldet was basically the face of.
