Digital Asset CEO Blythe Masters discusses tech and financial services. She speaks on "Bloomberg <GO>."
Blythe Masters, chief executive officer of New York technology startup Digital Asset Holdings, doesn’t care much about bitcoin.
"I never became particularly enamored with cryptocurrency," Masters said at the Bloomberg Markets Most Influential Summit in New York on Tuesday.
Masters is interested in the blockchain, the technology underlying bitcoin, which is at the center of much hype as well as promise for transforming Wall Street trading.
Blockchain, the technology that underpins Bitcoin, has been called the ‘saviour of global finance’. Banks, exchanges and regulators are keen to assess its applications for markets transactions. Philip Stafford, FT Trading Room editor, analyses whether it could work.
