The flags from the fire trucks now. The these, um flags, um are black and white versions of the American flag with a single blue line at the center.

The individual who called with a complaint with one single citizen felt that the blue the back the blue themes and the Again and hear the thin blue line flag somehow. Um Offended the Black lives matter movement. Now it seems to me that it is entirely possible that someone could be sympathetic to the peaceful aspirations of black lives matter.

Happened again again in a big country like this. Will there be another incident? I'm sure sadly, there will be But The two year anniversary is, according the Patriot Ledger of Sergeant Chestnuts.

But that's what's reported in the In the ledger of the flags were removed from town hall to the Braintree Police Department property where there is a memorial for fallen officers.

You can express support for black lives matter. But if you would you express support for something other, some other cause. Again a back the blue cause somehow your Expression of supporting the police. Can be eradicated again. This is the cancel culture that we're dealing with in this country right now.

As result when we were made aware of a banner being displayed on a town asset, I eat a fire truck that was inconsistent with this practice. We ask to be removed.

The Dudas Abides with The Block CEO Mike Dudas
"Thanks excited to do that. Yeah we you and I met a couple years ago and was in the context of a telegram group and that was my Kenley. My first foray into the wires of will call. It's or Crypto will. Now it's crypto twitter's the word but you see all the social media it's a Sort of a wild environment and it was eye opening for me to jump from traditional tack and business and Fintech into the system. It's two years later from when I originally met you. I feel about twice as old twice as have have no kidding. So so it's been a while couple of years but to your question so entered the space to fulltime as described right when things were rushing up an Krisha knowing But I've been bitcoin owner since two thousand thirteen fall. Hackers out there. You're welcome like Ryan. I enjoyed talking about you. Know all of my security issues publicly and that's why you'll also the thing that drew me to Bitcoin I've Yolk in two thousand ten joined Google's while at team and spent four years in that team does a decade too early to mobile payments in America in have been early on a number things was early at Bimbo which was acquired by Braintree P payments and before that I worked on my music in the late arts so that was a decade later but Juli after working infantile juvenile equitable for years out working braintree in meeting with the Queen based team to talk about bitcoin payments and two thousand thirteen and really being a little bit disillusioned. And I think we're still seeing this. Continue today with every Cinta company out there seemingly having the aspiration perhaps other than Stripe Square and Shop Affi- which is sort of Fintech e adjacent to sell to big bank or financial institution your I wanted to actually work on. What would hopefully be disrupting financial institutions in the way that we describe them and you know the regulated by the US government and other governments over the next few decades And discovering bitcoin in two thousand thirteen participating and being on the outskirts but seeing it from a formal industry perspective. You got me excited about the potential slightly aware of the risks the personalities the complexity. And then when I decided to jump in full-time Holy Shit. It was like awesome terrifying confusing and just a trigger for all of my good bad side as well as seemingly everybody else who is participating and I probably monologues provide house all stop here but looking at this confusing volatile space. At a time when it was you know growing seemingly exponentially was was simultaneously amazing scary and and just saw like I think what you saw around. I mean you've you've been full time for a long time but A darth of reliable real credible information that led people to do really stupid things and inaccurate. Gets us to the core of what the block is. I I don't WanNa go out on a limb and describe the block because I know that you're just gonNa correct me with some ostentatious vision and my best not everything of everything that That the two more people look at the block. They see a a media outlet. That's competing with coin desk. I think you yourself has Have have been vocal about winning business away from Clinton to ask and in growing the audience. You've obviously got a very strong team of researchers that are on percents On on twitter in a good way a lot a lot of the content has been exceptional. What's how do you describe the block? And and where are we now in terms of its evolution? Because I'll have Frank Frank Reich went for a run which typically twelve minute pace half walkout by their which is bad news. So maybe you can think about the block in terms of caricatures. Franken the media elements and then there folks being the research but how does how does this business align with your original vision to improve information in the industry? And and where do you think you are now versus where you want to be? So the original tagline was crypto simplified. While we strive to do that I. It doesn't describe you know what what we do in its entirety. We've expanded that into the first and final word and digital assets and what that means really as you were not just simplifying things so you can understand them. But we'd like to be the first place you look to figure out what the heck's going on this space and we define the space pretty broadly so it's not just covering public blockchain's and cryptocurrencies than I just covering bitcoin Theorem Ripples and Be Gash Etcetera. It's covering central. Bank digital currencies is covering distributed ledger technology and stuff that is adjacent. So companies that are using technology and governments that are thinking about money in new ways The original idea and concept was again crypto simplified and it was hatched time when there was a lot more momentum behind. Lucia say everyday people's interest in learning more and going really deep in the technology What happened? Is you in two thousand eighteen as we started to form the brand and launched the brand. We realized we had incredible talent Stephen Frank Larry editorial talent that was super experienced had experience in various aspects of currency and blockchain Inventec analysis research and so we launched you. Know Not really a crypto. Simplify brand one. That had insider knowledge people gravitated towards our all of our contact with free in two thousand eighteen and that was the original vision for the business was young in two thousand eighteen. Hundreds of millions of people will be interested in this You know imminent revolution. That's happening today. What has clearly happened as everybody took a deep breath. Certainly we did and said Hey. This is going to be a multi year multi decade evolution with a incredible things happening up stones and everything in between just like I think a lot of technology and a lot of you know financial markets over yet throughout history. So where we've come out is. We are focused on instead of blockchain. One one Call it somewhere between Crypto blockchain to one and above. And it's enough that if you're if you're somebody who's aware of what's going on you can kind of start with our news and journalism that's our top of funnel that's where most people are aware of the block the news and journalism brand. And then you we will through as you mentioned our social counts and through our personal accounts. We you know. Basically tighten the funnel and connect to the folks who are actually participating fully in the market. And then we sell solutions as including research information.

flicks is storing bring your commitment that information and every like without you even interacting with them they're going to fill you for whatever the jewish in is that's been committed between do you envy ending merchants i touch a beach c. a. b. two b. i would like to call this is a pretty not a big market as well there's there are one twenty seven trillion dollar payments sets that happens overby too but even today b. two b. payments are still done with paper checks and beauty involved you know accounts payable organization of one of one company talking to congress eveb invoice is being generated invoices being meal be and and then you know either someone writes a check or in the recent years people have started using credit cards bank payments or ACH payments in the US so there's it's a lotta potential in in in b. two b. for digital pinkus acidic to the most common inform seemed to be on let's talk through what a typical payment flow looks like and i've tried to appeal some layers office complex you know interaction that happens on if you look at a very physical infraction no i'm i'm looking to buy a lender of the i know what can have had had i wanna compare competitors i know who who has a sheep is one who has the best polars go to their checkout cage for the hills the order is placed in an idea the product on the left side you have consumer in the right side of emerging so humor mesa payment at some point the merchant gets her came in as well and as a consumer as in carpool for the company that i had my card from the bank that i get my heart from let's let's say i used my capital on a car they're going to send me a statement at at the end of the billing cycle and i'm going to pay off that this is like a flawed everyone understands phyllis tape the part between what happens when you provider details and when you get confirmation complex with interactions it starts with the the merchant center payment information payment processor or payment gateway they could be the same or they could be different depending on the thing the fares are the pieman processors case death knell staff it's a visa card and sends it to the right code screen or the cartwright so that transaction get to visa visa now identifies that hey is a car was issued by capitol one and they they identified this by something hold of information which is the first six digits on your part disadvantage permission and they ordered initial official bank capital one now going to look up many they know that the transaction was from me and then we're going to see if my credit is the transaction when still fit under my credit limit if my credit limit one hundred dollars i've purchased forty dollars and still good to go for ten dollars transaction if it was abandoned com you'll receive it if i still have money in my bank account to approve that today say close all i approve this transaction it goes back to the scene that goes back for the payment processor sir and in the end the the it makes back into the margin and this and they say look all i know i'll get money transaction i'm going to approve this otter ought to convert the customer or the cardholder perspective if you look at it from a merchant perspective now they need to receive cash for the powder so how does that happen on similar to how there is a issuing issuing bank that works with consumer convoy workers in this case there's also a bank which were works with business or merchants and that's a finding bang and they provide services to the merchant treasury services to the rich and so ended in this example breaking down the merchant side of things capital on a few things has had all these transactions that they have received for all of their cardholders once a day they'll go through it and they will collector transactions were what's called deal bashes elements fight each card brent so they'll they'll create a separate badge for visa matt for mastercard and my action would be included and sent to be in a in a batch so visa talks to the car scene is visa the visa talks to the pan processor and providing that information the payment processor talks to the human processor and your prime beg at this point knows which margin is associated with the team in the back or these separate out how and know that this pretty hack lender may ten transactions which each equal for simplicity each equals ten dollars and this is how much they need to be paid out at a given day there's lot complexity to this at every point are fees associated card issuing banks charge something called interchange fee which is which really depends on the type of car do have is it a credit card is a debit card so dinner works harder hart was mcdonald's quarterbacks was fargo's and applying bench cheeses and acquiring banks so they also service issuing banks as well and there were other neighbor couple and then very well i i thought i was talking about was i interchanged figures and there are different kinds of fees and where are those these are deducted and and how those lease fees apply the merchan- howard those fees communicated at different points in this in this interaction is layered complexity and then there's different layers of complexity if you are no market where jesse has to be applied to the products and services that seoul how you calculate tax report on hats those are a couple of things that i like to call up but there's a lot of other season that goes on between using tractions as well so just talking talking true some of these flows and kennedy going back to of payments in each of these organizations it does you get a sense of where how all of this together it if we if we think about find.

"For products will i like events where fans get to meet each other compare notes and kind of figure out what everyone's doing their area on i we'll be talking about you know what it takes to succeed payments when i was thinking about preparing for this talk i was like oh you know typically they're hugging huggies keith lights the interest on knowing from the start people usually ask but depression that gets harrison and you so if i asked us grew up oh you instead of flake how many of you think you'd most publicity just stare at me and then i think i live under a rock right and even if i change the question i said oh how many of you buy things on the internet by products and services i'll still get the same reaction russian and that's basically because came in issue because we do this in an hour all's area we just expected toward no no matter if i go to walgreens and i you know i like using apple pie at walgreens if i use that or find buying something online from a e commerce surgeon origin the expectation is the expedient should be reliable it secure an inspection list says a payment plan the end those are some of the three things specifically the three things that you know you you focus on and you make sure that the the experiences of symbol that people even know and realize the complexity so we have around thirty to forty five minutes here and i want to focus on talk about wiping insists exciting what some of the inherent challenges of being a payments and also the last thing that i think was if you might be crested is what would be unique to have to be successful as payments PM actually traits right let's get to the three year olds can i touch upon these doing the different parts of today's eh this is what i see us as the top three skills i don't think there's any specific domain knowledge and i think this applies a lot of pm in general but i'm call us why i some of these things stands physically for payments PM the first one is being able to be really detailed or intense but also at the same time thanks stepping back and understanding an entire payments slow inexperienced and knowing and tightened up with the detailed feature the building the second is having empathy talk about empathy about the nauseous user entity but using the et these super skills that you have to apply at your partner is that you regret and the third is learning again talk about how countess learning applying in incentive payments a little bit about myself i've been doing a product management from around ten years an art premise that i spent in wells fargo which is one of the largest banks in the country i'm an engineer by background i started my job my first job out of school was that it'd be an engineer for started in india then tech consulting for a very short short period of time on and i joined spargo right after i graduated from i finished my post joined the joined york medicine and even though i was at the at a very large financial institution for almost seven eight years every two years i did something different and i didn't realize it at that time but stepping back now that i think about this on a financial institution which flowed task consumer banking and also had commercial or merchant you know business thanking part and i spent time on each side of those businesses and it helped me gain perspective uh on why different products and services are offered estimates and also how it all comes together right now i am a product manager ed kim's team in briefing if you don't know what she does grocery is tape health service and we look to provide a ah seamless payments experience for merchants and i'm pretty sure even though this is like a small crowd i'm pretty sure all all you have used the payment rails that my team has built because we support merchants like bird and if you've taken you know right with uber airbnb fubon tickets the anger ticketmaster astor or any of the thousands of merchants that before your transactions have on the payment rails it might keep has built and in supports and dan supporting such an impactful payment experience and supporting payments at steel is what keeps things interesting for me what's keeps me going so one of the best things that i think akin should have is is thinking about why something needs to be done and as all of you are here i wanted to cannot instead of just saying this is this payments PM needs to do i want to talk about why you should care about being appendi- PM and why this matters and i need a casual search for a PM jobs in payments commits over the weekend and i had i you know depending on where you surgeon how good the search results for i could see you know hundreds of jobs this is all across the US and and you know and and there are some global you know positions there as well and these are across companies very different companies these traditional financial institutions like wanna fight employers on these are techs companies are innovating in payments and also kim roles in companies that are you know across different word that are providing commerce experiences and if you think about it companies that are providing commerce experiences actually want to focus on payments so that they can optimize human experience yes and that's important because pam experienced what they see is critical in integral to their entire customer experience and what products and services state they deliver so i would say like think about it that way in a way that if you are a company who's providing conference experience you have join us for a prospect and tells they buy your products or service they're not your customer right technically they're still user prospect that you're going after and payment becomes turning point that sticky interaction that converts your prospect to a customer and thinking about it that way i mean yeah that that's the power of making that experience really friction lists and i would say that compan- at each one of these companies lose right on being opinion in payments and a company which is small or a company he would just largely depending on the size of the company is going to look very different depending on the culture of the company acquaint to look their friend and also depending on what the goal of the of the price of the product carport medication that company is way too different but there are some common characteristics and i want to talk about next about you know oh case this is there there's commander came in peons what's pm through legal group across a few different categories so uh-huh if you think about from a perspective off the company or a product areas where you're building consumer financial israel to tools a payment plan on in a complaint did focus on building the right tool for the customer so this would be example for if you're building a if you're building tools for lending if you're building tools where you want consumers to buy your product consent sense hence they could be your mortgage tool your could be your yard you know small business loans and your revolution you know your revolutionizing then making the whole experience easy how would you compare the parks how would you treat a consumer is applying for their product how quickly could you decision then and provide the position should consumer so that's what you know opinion and says an organization like that view it on you have a companies that provide merchant firing processing services if you're a PM PM in in those countries you're looking at efficiently you're looking at simplifying the payment experience forty merging so that the can focus on what their business is in that case you're looking at processing just how you process payments money movement higher you're going to move money fraud solutions are there intelligent way of recognizing fraud as it's happening and minimizing losses the companies and there there are many more five areas in there as well and bridging those is something you know it's it's what e commerce or ecommerce company company would do a payment pm an ecommerce company would be looking to convert their focus is going to be on efficiently converting according to user or their product their prospect to customer focused on optimizing the check.

"And i would say as a user as someone who pays for online services another thing i know that i've done is sometimes i don't have my credit card number handy but i know my username a password for pay pow toto it actually is like it's very tiny bear here to entry but when with payments everything makes the difference so as a user paying for services you might be like whoa my credit cards in the other room and i have my username password i can just type that in and it makes it really simple and just the difference between saying oh the credit cards neil room you may not even sign up for the service 'cause it's just a hassle at that point sure yeah i mean that just any kind of friction that we put in place can lose the sale entirely and then another perspective that we have on paper this is something that we should verify now that we're taking pay pal payments again to be true is we believe our theory is that tape how users will churn out less because inside of pay power you have multiple forms of payment like i said you can you can attach a checking account and a credit card account and usually when you use pay pow it's like you're paying for several different things and that pay pow account for you will never ever change whereas with credit cards credit cards will expire you will cancel that credit card and use in other credit card but a user doesn't normally closed close out their pay powell account in start a whole new one as frequently as you do with.

"I was i was lucky enough to be part of that team with j d of restructuring the system but in the end we got it out and one of the issues we we had a long was we wanted to be able to support more payment systems and i think it's an interesting reason why when we bricked out pay pow and i mean the entire reason we added pay pow is because requests from users murray while you say that people request that we add paper because i think that's an interesting story in and of itself there's a couple of different reasons i think that for some people they just trust pay pal that's how they trust hang on line and i think that that was one of the leading reasons why people are asking for it but another reason which was interesting and something that was kind of new to me was was finding out that credit cards as we know them in the united states are not really all that common internationally like not everyone uses credit the way we do and pay pal is a is a better option in those cases they just you either don't have what we would think of as a credit card or the credit card system is different and pay pal kind of smooths out the edges of that makes it possible offend pay definitely i mean it i know that i have account and i can it loves me to choose if i want to draw money from a credit card or if i want to draw money from a checking account and so i think for countries like that you have people who want to pay for services like coat open and at the time we only accepted credit cards and that's why we ended up choosing to begin with just because as much it something that's often requested and as the business supports itself based solely on the community we like to help anyone who's looking doug paid for our services so it was the big is just by user requests which is an awesome thing to get you know but it was integrating it was a little tougher than we expected.
