“What Blockdaemon really does is provide an easier way for people to participate in networks – what excites me about this is watching blockchain ecosystems grow across all of the different participants in all of the different ways they want to interact.”
In this episode, Amor and Pete Townsend talk through her path into blockchain that led her to Blockdaemon, and also dive into:
— How her legal experience and time working in innovation, technology and financial services gave her the horizontal view of what it takes to run a business, especially in the crypto and blockchain space.
— The unexpected legal parallels between bitcoin and native tribal fishing rights in Australia and the trigger for Amor’s entry point into crypto and blockchain.
— Amidst all of the noise and the hype, how the simplicity of providing an easier way for people to participate in networks enables web3 ecosystem growth.
— Why the institutional infrastructure space in crypto and blockchain and institutional client expectations of resilient internal processes and practices can help drive overall blockchain adoption.
— How the incredibly complex network upgrade that was the Ethereum Merge proved that a decentralized network can operate at scale.
— How Amor’s insatiable curiosity, her tendency to think around corners, join abstract dots and break down a problem into its individual components have impacted her ability to adapt to such a broad range of activities in business.
— How expressing yourself in such a way that is attuned to your audience brings people along with you for the journey, whether it be a colleague or a client you’re trying to win.
— Amor’s creative outlet and how to wind down after a 12-13 hour day by cooking for family and friends.
