I keep hearing bankers like Jamie Dimon say things like "blockchain, not crypto"

As a defi person, who doesn't work at a bank, this confuses me.

If we already have decentralized blockchains that can execute smart contracts that run on cryptocurrency without having to pay extractive rents to traditional banks, why is JP Morgan necessary at all? Why does anyone need a JP Morgan Chain that does the same thing as Ethereum, Solana, Avalanche, etc?

In short, Blockchain is a technology infrastructure that enable transactions/event validations across parties without relying on one central intermediary (eg clearing house) or one centralized database. This can be used to create cryptocurrency or NFT, but at the same time the tech can be used in many traditional settlements scenarios for real world assets when multiple parties are involved


I think Jamie Dimon means they want to leverage the technology to serve better in financial services (not to be overthrown by the technology).


Absolutely great


They want to build their own infrastructure so they have more control over it in terms of development plan and adding new features. The public Blockchain relies on community and group of people which may not serve their interest as a business.

Also, in terms of finance, having own Blockchain or infrastructure makes you earn fees accumulated over the chain. Plus, they can build more products and update Blockchain whenever needed along with offering infrastructure as a service to gain more business and money flow.

How do LMM/MM/UMM firms in Europe (London & EU) differ from NA in terms of WLB? Know it will vary by fund and city but would be curious for some data points - have anecdotally heard of fewer full sprint weekends, fewer 3/4 am nights, and more protected vacation. Know the opposite tends to be true in consulting - so is this a one off or true more broadly?

Why is it recommended you give a company 2 weeks notice when you are leaving but at the same time, when they are laying you off/firing you, they typically do it on the spot. I have known countless people layed off/fired on the spot over the years (especially after busy season) and everyone else when they leave give 2 week notice. Why should we relinquish power to corporations? Corporations really don't care about us. They pretend they do.


So I got invited to do an on-site interview and as part of it, the hiring manager wants me to present some of the chemistry I'm currently working on.

Any tips on how to ace this presentation?
