The daughter of Indian immigrants from western Maharashtra state, Amiti is the first confirmed woman developer of Bitcoin Core, the protocol underlying a $170 billion market cap asset changing the face of privacy, security, and value. Though born and raised in the bay area, the geographic and spiritual center of disruptive tech for the past half-century, she has a global perspective stemming from myriad experiences working, studying, and living across the country or with others across the world.
Fiercely determined, Amiti is a breath of fresh air compared to the common, tired tropes of Silicon Valley today. Her commitment to high quality work while extending the ladder to others has been a through line of her entire life. She’s carving a new path now, not just blazing trails as the daughter of immigrants, but creating new models for work while supporting the open source tech she believes in.

The global digital currency race has heightened the threat to traditional monetary policy and the dollar’s dominance, enough for the Federal Reserve of Boston to make a concerted effort to keep pace.
The Boston Fed and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology will build and test a digital currency “oriented to central bank uses.” The project's digital currency is hypothetical, given the U.S. has not formally announced a central bank digital currency. But it’s likely the U.S. will have no choice but to pursue this path, given the scale of the global parties that are pursuing the technology.
China and the Libra stablecoin project (which originated from Facebook) are both drawing a lot of attention, and play prominently in the MIT/Fed project’s materials, which states “Digital currency is direct central bank money (like cash) that exists only in digital form. No G20 country has fully launched a central bank digital currency, or CBDC, but China and Sweden are among those working on it. Private firms are also perfecting digital money, with Facebook’s Libra project among the best known.” The project’s representatives were not available for an interview before deadline.?The Fed and MIT envision several use cases for a U.S. digital currency, such as cutting costs from international transfers and faster government transfers to individuals. The lack of such a rail has already caused problems, given the government's lackluster performance in disbursing stimulus payments during the pandemic. It’s a near certainty the U.S. won’t have a digital currency before the next round of stimulus payments.
And the biggest hurdles may not be technological.
“I’m not sure that bringing in MIT will help advance a CBDC initiative in the U.S. more quickly,” said Talie Baker, a senior analyst at Aite. “There are many concerns other than technology that need to be addressed, the biggest hurdles are political in addition to philosophical decisions around the creation of money and the impacts CBDC would have to competition amongst banks in the US.”
The Fed/MIT project contends a CBDC could prevent private sector monopolies on digital currencies, suggesting private currencies may base revenue models on mining user data, causing privacy issues. There’s a risk to resilience in the monetary system if the private digital currency market becomes too top-heavy.
These concerns indirectly reference Libra, though the Libra project has changed its structure to peg its stablecoins to individual government currencies in an effort to address claims Libra could undermine traditional monetary policy. Libra, which is slated to launch later this year, has been the subject of almost constant controversy, mostly over Facebook’s affiliation and broader privacy issues tied to the social network.
Cryptocurrencies are largely considered to be the next step in online finance, helping those without access to traditional financial infrastructure manage their money, send payments, and make investments without relying on banks and centralized payment processors.
It's no wonder then, why some of the world's most successful online payment platforms have begun experimenting with the technology and are now looking for ways to facilitate cryptocurrency transactions directly or allow retail investors to get involved in the blossoming new crypto economy.
JP Morgan is investing and on the board at ConsenSys, bringing JP Morgan to ethereum. So the biggest banks are now moving to blockchain in many applications. It’s a complete 180 from Jamie Diamond blasting crypto a few years ago.
There appears to be a Cold War race right now between the US and China to develop a national crypto to help stabilize troubled economic system around the world. A currency tech race seems inevitable and probably will happen extremely fast.
Fidelity Investment, one of the largest asset managers in the world, has now opened a Bitcoin Fund and released a long report with a stock-to-flow analysis putting Bitcoin at $1,000,000 by 2025. This is the type of shit Mcafee would say in the past, now our biggest financial institutions are saying it.
At this point we see the biggest financial institutions and the biggest nation’s governments are getting into Defi. The general market is going to see that Bitcoin isn’t going away and is a safe and reliable asset. The greatest wealth transfer in history is going to happen in the next 10 years. Make sure to pack your bags...at your own risk.
It might not be much, but it's the step in the right direction.
