The Chamber of Digital Commerce was honored to announce today the addition of three significant advisory board members: Blythe Masters, CEO, Digital Asset Holdings; James Robinson, co-founder and managing partner, RRE Ventures; and Jason Weinstein, partner, Steptoe & Johnson LLP.

Masters is the CEO of Digital Asset Holdings, a start-up company that is using distributed ledger technology to enhance the settlement and recording of both digital and mainstream financial assets. Prior to Digital Asset, Masters spent 27 years at JP Morgan serving in many senior roles. She was most recently head of global commodities.

"The Chamber of Digital Commerce is serving an important role in helping build the regulatory framework for the digital asset community, said Masters. "I am pleased to bring my experience in financial services to work with the chamber on achieving its goals of advocating polices that promote public trust and confidence in financial infrastructure and fostering the deployment of new technologies to reduce risk and settlement latency."

Robinson is the co-founder and managing partner of RRE Ventures, a New York City-based venture capital firm. Weinstein is a partner with the international law firm Steptoe & Johnson and former head of the Department of Justice's criminal division.

"I am honored to join the talented team on the chamber's advisory board and look forward to utilizing my government and private sector experience to help the chamber in its important work," said Weinstein. "After 15 years with the Department of Justice, I am pleased to play a leadership role in engaging with government agencies on financial technology issues and assisting the digital asset industry navigate the challenging regulatory and enforcement environment."

The chamber looks to its advisory board to provide guidance and leadership in helping to shape its public policy positions, for strategic input on educational outreach campaigns, and for access to key relationships in D.C., on Wall Street and beyond.

"While digital currencies and related blockchain-based technologies are leading the next generation of commerce, regulatory clarity continues to be one of the greatest challenges facing our industry," said Perianne Boring, founder and president of the chamber. "With the team we have assembled, we are working to educate policymakers to help shape their familiarity and understanding of these technologies."
