"All week so it's been a good week for me And I'm excited to keep that conversation going with Michael Sonnen shine He is the chief executive officer of digital asset manager greyscale He joined us now on the phone from Los Angeles Michael great to have you on the show and it's been a big week for Bitcoin but it's been an even bigger week for Ethereum Ether is up 3.3% this week Dusting Bitcoin and I feel like we've been seeing this more that we see ether outperform Bitcoin or are we back in alt season Well first of all great to be with you both and thank you so much for having me I think it's tough to say whether or not we're back in all season or not I think what we're seeing now is more attention than ever is being paid to crypto as an asset class There is certainly amongst the grayscale investors a general appreciation that the asset class is here to stay And as a result of that investors realize that there is a lot more than just Bitcoin and actually more than just Bitcoin in Ethereum And so there continues to be ever more demand for them to diversify beyond just those top two digital currencies by market cap Okay where else should they diversify Well I think what many investors are beginning to appreciate is that there are now growing ecosystems within the digital asset universe And we're seeing that in the worlds of gaming there's been a lot of chatter about the metaverse We've seen the convergence of file storage and digital assets We've seen a lot of investors beginning to think about things like NFTs and really starting to unlock other use cases that maybe weren't part of this ecosystem when they first began thinking about making investment allocations Okay you really piqued my interest with NFTs There's so much to talk about We fortunately have you for quite a bit Michael so we're gonna try to get to everything But let's talk NFTs because I'm trying to understand what use cases are for NFTs beyond what we've seen them used for which you know is collectibles Sure Well I think what it's highlighting and this is just one incarnation of the idea of a digitally unique item that the ownership of which is verified the recorded in a way that's completely decentralized You are starting to see how that could certainly be a tailwind or a major improvement to individuals and companies around the world We fight things like fake goods whether they're counterfeit or having to be able to track them and their whereabouts In fact their ownership And art is just one vertical that it could be looked at It could be luxury goods This can extend really to almost any item physical or not that could be tagged and added to a blockchain where it's ownership could easily be recorded And I think it's really starting for many people to really have them rethink the creator economy the way that artists can pump out their content and actually sell it and engage directly with their fans and user bases and that can be music It could be our meaning the list is pretty endless And so sticking with NFTs I mean grayscale has a really impressive lineup of funds It feels like you guys cover every part of the cryptocurrency universe I don't see any of your trusts specifically focused on getting exposure to NFTs Is that something that you plan to offer at some point Well I would never rule anything out We today operate 15 different investment vehicles Some of them are single asset vehicles and some of them are diversified meaning that they have a basket of various assets that they hold And so as we think about where investor preferences are we certainly think that there is a meaningful opportunity to expand in both categories such that we are providing investors with an on ramp to certain of these subsets of the current of the digital currency ecosystem And we've so far done that with large cap currencies we've done that through and certainly are always trying to tow the line between identifying opportunities that we think are compelling and bringing them to investors and trying to reconcile that with our investors are telling us they want that exposure Well listening to that I'm curious whether you think that NFTs could be a flash in the pan whether this is just the bright shiny object that crypto investors are focusing on right now because there are stats out there that obviously nfts get a lot of buzz but actually daily average sales sometime in August And we have just about 30 seconds Well I don't know that it necessarily a flash in the pan so much as again I'd reiterate that the success and the acceptance of NFTs I think is really a way for everyone to understand the potential of what it could be like to have assets who the ownership is trapped on a blockchain NFTs are just one incarnation of them Michael son and shine is the chief executive officer at great scale Michael stick with us because we're going to do some news Then we're going to come back and chat more about crypto blockchain NFTs all that and more Curious really about asking him if where he thinks crypto is right now in the scheme of asset classes like.

"Welcome back to fast money. Bitcoin holding above the $61,000 mark is a market gears up for the launch of the first Bitcoin futures ETF tomorrow. So does this launch clear the way for more names to enter the field? Let's get to Kate Rooney. For more on that, hey, Kate. Hey, Melissa's ETF. Maybe the first to market, but it probably won't be the last. There are a group of similar futures based Bitcoin ETFs waiting in the wings and they could go live by the end of this year. Tomorrow's ETF debut is from pro shares it'll hold Bitcoin futures contracts on the CME and we have invesco with a similar application in the works van neck and Valkyrie as well. Those are all on the watch list. And while pro shares may have a slight advantage as the first mover may only be, but a couple of days or a couple of weeks. And that leaves those other names to compete on fees potentially or even things like brand awareness. The other big name to watch here, grayscale Bitcoin trust. It's the world's largest Bitcoin fund with about 3.5% of all global Bitcoin supply in that fund. It's been the main on ramp for investors like Kathy wood, for example, to get exposure to crypto. Grayscale, confirming today that it does plan to convert that fund to a spot ETF eventually and CEO Michael son and John telling squawk box this morning that he expects competitive pressure going forward and they stand ready to reduce fees. But one other big thing analysts have been watching, the grayscale discounting. It used to be a premium, but it's been trading at a discount and roughly 15% discount to the price of Bitcoin since earlier this year. That's been blamed on a 6 month lockup period of initial investments in that fund. Holders aren't able to redeem shares and react to bitcoins. Market price in real time. Sources have been telling me the traders in some cases are buying grayscale betting that that spread would collapse if it is approved as an ETF and they're using it as sort of a way to buy Bitcoin at a discount. Melissa, Kay, thank you, Kate Rooney. Karen, we actually have talked about this in the past that discount. I'm wondering what your thoughts on that seems like it would have to close. It would have to trade apart some point if it's going to be an ETF reflective of the price. Right. This is the kind of thing you and I talk about actually. The GBTC discount rate. I mean, in prior, in its prior life before there were other products, it actually had that premium when Bitcoin was in a frenzy and people would pay over, which never quite understood. But I don't know how easy it is going to be for them to convert. But at the discount here, it's practically as wide as it's been. I think 21 or two is what it's been. I think it was 18 today. So I don't know, you know, Kate mentioned maybe people buying that. Can you short the future against it and see if that spread narrows? That would seem to be a not super risky bet, but you'd have to it sounds like hang on to your GBTC for a while. I think this size of this discount is interesting. Yeah, Jeff? Yeah, I mean, I think that's something investors just need to pay attention to in terms of the tracking area associated with some of these things that aren't actually owning the cryptocurrency. I think that's super important. If you look at the past year, Bitcoin up over 300% grayscale up a little less than 200%. So there is going to be a massive difference when you're not actually holding Bitcoin. I think that's important. There'll be less of a difference in a futures ETF, for example, but still you're not owning Bitcoin, so I think that's important to know, and it's not going to track the spot price. Again, I think the Holy Grail is an ETF that invests directly in Bitcoin. I think this is a step in that direction, but we're not there yet. And the timing is uncertain. So in terms of the narrowing of that discount, the timing is uncertain there too. All right, coming up, short.

"Of the week in addition to Bloomberg businessweek including a look behind the curtain at the most magical place center we're talking about Disney World It's a fun one plus a deep conversation on Bitcoin and the broader crypto market Carol does that with grayscale CEO Michael son and shine It's part of our Bloomberg invest global event Right it's a week where we saw Bitcoin once again top $50,000 And we've seen that certainly before Lots of volatility in that market First up this hour though let's get to this week's cover story It's also related to crypto But it looks through a different lens It's about tether the world's most popular and mysterious stable coin Well the help us understand what tether is and the character is behind it and why U.S. regulators are scrutinizing its purported at $69 billion market We turn to the man who wrote the story Bloomberg news financial investigations reporter Zeke Fox he joined us along with businessweek editor Joel Webber Yeah so it's been a mystery for years There's always been this cryptocurrency called tether that's worth a dollar because each coin is supposedly backed by a dollar in the bank But there have always been these critics who are saying where are these dollars really Does this company really have the money it claims In this year they've been printing like a crazy amount of tethers So there's not 69 billion of them which means a company is supposed to have 69 billion of real dollars somewhere A real U.S. cash It needs to be backed by real U.S. cash Exactly That's what they promised And I went out to try and figure out all right where is this money What have they done with it How much of it did you find Was a little disappointed because I was hoping that would just be like a pile of gold somewhere but I realized that that's not that's not really how many people think Yeah But it turns out that there one of the biggest banks is down in The Bahamas And I went and met with the chairman of the bank It's called Deltek And he said that they hold about 15 billion I think he said of the 69 but he's not quite sure he can't speak for He said that money's safe It's here with us But he can't speak for the rest of it So I mean the reason this is really important is that tether is sort of like at the center of the cryptocurrency world You might think it's kind of like pointless like why would you even want a cryptocurrency that wasn't going to make you rich But this is the one that you use to send money from one exchange to the other to place your bets up the exchange Essentially if you think of the cryptocurrency exchanges as like giant casinos these are the chips And all the casinos make you get the same chips which are tethers So it's like the connection between all the different parts of the cryptocurrency world And so if these coins aren't worth $1 it could throw all these markets out of whack and be like a huge deal for all of crypto Worth mentioning what he did before he was a Bahama bahaman dinker Yes so very impressive dude Jean charleton the chairman of Deltek he actually is the first big success was creating the cartoon about the cyborg cop inspector gadget or cyborg to my child Yeah mine Yeah Yeah World So he got he got very rich from that and also some other cartoons He sold his studio moved to The Bahamas where he bought this beautiful pink colonial mansion that you probably saw in the James Bond film Casino Royale It was the can not make this stuff up It was the villains It was a villain's house in that And certainly nice enough to be that And he then bought this bank in The Bahamas and I mean so the whole thing is kind of hugely hard to wrap your mind around but essentially tether needs to have a it needs banks It needs banks to hold money because people send tether real money to get the tether coins And they've had a lot of trouble over the years finding banks that will do business with them because a lot of banks have just not wanted to do business with cryptocurrency companies in general And so this Deltek bank of The Bahamas is one of the few that would and really save them at a time when they were struggling to figure out what to do with their money Might this be a Ponzi scheme So that's what some of the harshest critics have said I mean the information that I got is that they are taking this money and investing it And rather than it just being totally a giant scam it's all made up It's more about a conflict of interest where when you buy a tether coin you really want it to be safe You really want to get your dollar back no matter what If you want to be there right Yeah But if you're the it turns out that the way it's structured the owner of the tether company he's not sitting on $69 billion He can invest that money in different things and if any earnings on those investments go to him So even if he earns like 1% that $690 million and there's not much expenses in running this company It's really small operation So his incentive is to invest in weird stuff to try and make some money And what I found was that in fact a fair amount of it billions was invested in Chinese commercial paper which is kind of like something that people on Wall Street really avoid Like there's most commercial papers held by money market funds and they just basically will not buy Chinese commercial paper There's very few of them have much of it That was Bloomberg news financial investigations reporter Zeke Fox along with businessweek editor Joel Weber It's the cover of this week's edition of Bloomberg businessweek Coming up we'll stick with cryptocurrencies and talk about the promise the volatility of Bitcoin with grayscale.

"Can take our free novel. Writing course at the complete creative dot com forward slash novel was show you everything. I've learned about writing up until this point and while I do focus it on novels you can also use it for comics or movies or television or more is basically all of the best information that I've learned from building my writing career in all the platforms delivered in one cohesive. Course all right that being said what's going on with the show ticket Michael. Tell us what you're passionate about. These days You don't really passionate about storytelling. As per usual I've been with the company for about eight years now and we're always looking for what's next and storytelling what excites us. And you know with So many critics join the platform everyday. You we're always stumbling upon something new new voices new stories new characters And that really drives US. Day to day creatively so Yeah I would say storytelling always now. let's I have a habit of getting into the weeds before I get the general pictures so I'm trying to break that With our recent interview. So can you tell us just what Tapas is? What brings you on the show today for sure so. Thomas is an open publishing platform for digital comics and Web novels You know the name. Thomas drives from Small Bite. Size snacks so our goal is to deliver bite-size stories on the go So we have a website. We have a mobile APP. We have a mobile web page And we're really trying to be an open publishing platform or anyone can join and tell their stories and connect with readers. And I'm just I'm here today because editor and you're an editor and we're here to talk about comics yes My favorite is my absolute favorite topics from all the other topics that I talk about. Talking about comics is The driving force of my life most days most. Yeah same here so I think we should start talking about new voices because it's something that We're launching our new book To Louis hard to spell right now as we talked and One of the things that I've really Love is to find somebody that I never That I've never known about before that. Tha that is taking Has a voice that is completely fresh and new. And I'm I'm wondering if you have that as one of the things that excites you to about tapas. And just editing in general yeah for sure you know a a large part of my goal is to help empower new voices Find a readership. Find a safe community where they can thrive in I took a sneak peek at Could do is hard to spell. It looks like you're working with over seventy craters for this apology right. That's right and and had you. I guess. Go about finding those craters and I know some of them are superstar bullish and some of them are also pretty new. Yeah I want to To I I tried to balance those two things so for me when I'm thinking about putting together an anthology or putting together a slate a it always starts with like who can I get to anchor the book so two or three established big-name traders that would be recognized and then the majority of the book are people. I've either worked with before or have a track record. So like the journeymen comic Creator who I know we're going to deliver The The big name sometimes Don't deliver on time because they have other commitments. So idea right to be like okay. So if none of these big names will ever and all of these newbies like don't deliver at least have a book because I know these people are going to deliver a solid story that we're going to be able to so I try to have a few of the big names enough of an established trader based. Indie creator base. That I have a book even if everything goes to pot. Yeah then New CREATORS WHO? I've either never met before had never worked in comics before I've never worked with before and I think that that that keeps people excited That that they're always able to find new voices. They're always able to see new stories from the creators they liked and the and all the creators. Ray will be like. Wow I was just in an anthology with Paul Jenkins. Yeah I mean that's amazing so I I also saw that. There are thirty stories. Are you creating the I guess? Creative teams or are they kind of funny. Or how does that aspect worked they always they find each other's so odd. Sometimes I run. A facebook group called Authors and creators making money selling books so sometimes they find each other in there But they're all they have to come to the book with their team in place much like. I'm assuming that they have to come like that. That come to top US with a team in place to do their book too. Yeah Especially on like the community side. That's usually always the case On the I guess. More premium or professional publisher side. Where top is a bit more hands on we do go about. Finding a writers artists appear together that we think could make something new and exciting and thrilling. When you're going onto that The publishing The the part that you are more involved in are you looking for more established traitors or do you have a sort of model where or or people that have a fan base. Or how does that work yet? It's a little bit of both I would say Like one that comes to mind is like Cheshire Crossing that we published. I think a couple years ago That one was written by Andy Weirder and he had originally published on his personal website and he wanted to revamp kind of the aesthetics of the book and you know he reached out to us. Destroy figure out. Okay like what types of artists Houston could really work with The revamp of Chechen crossing. And so we went about You know looking at all the craters platform and we finally landed on Sarah Anderson who does a really great comic called Sarah Scribbles Previously doodle time And Sarah had mentioned like. Oh she she she can really really draw you know. Most of her stuff are like gag a day Ten more sketchy style but We are portfolio portfolio. We absolutely fell in love and so he paired you know Andy. We're who wrote the Martian and it's like one of the biggest novelists in the world and we paired him with Sir Anderson who is undoubtedly like one of the biggest web comic creators In the world as well And we thought that that was really exciting. Pairing where you know. We're taking the best of both worlds and seeing what happens through that collaboration But other times you know we we're working with established raters China. Find maybe a crater from the community who might not be as well establish And we think that that is an interesting marriage as well You know a lot of times. Less established craters will take more creative risks and I think that stirs the Pot and create something that we you know. Editorials can come up with our own. Come up with on our own and I think you know as editors we're always looking to be surprised by the final product in some way. I think that is very close to the the what I'm trying to do and I put together an anthology or a slate of books. Because you need those people who you can go to press with like luck I just at some point you have to go and talk to press and This is not a knock against press but like they they they want the name like they have like they have to say like what the headline like. Just keep bringing up Paul Jenkins but life Paul Jenkins in New Anthology is the headline not like bunch of creators. Who you've never heard of her in that. So you need those but then you also need the ones that are going to be exciting to not just you. But the other creators and the people who are buying the anthology or the the product to Yeah totally And I know that this is the second and policy within. The failures are dispel. Is that correct yet? But it's the third overall monster anthology. Has there ever been a time? Where could do this hard to spell was covered by appear or media outlet and they spelled with around. No but I'll tell you a funny story is I have edited now.

That's misspelled still is Kathy Lou. People cannot come remember the second age or the first age or sometimes either. It's the second age so I'm not looking at it and if you were to ask me how to spell it. I guarantee you I would miss. That's like an age It's easy I always only reason I remember is because I remember the second H is for more. Oh interesting that was actually one of the one of the original tea subtitles for the second -nology through Lewis hard to spell the second. H is for her but it just didn't roll off the tongue as much as terrible twos I. It's amazing how much of my life is spent on the marketing side of the book And how little is spent on the actual creation of the book? I don't do you do you find you find. You have a lot of time for the creating of the booker as most of it about like branding and marketing thing. Or is it somewhere like a beautiful balance between That's a good question. I mean I think the the the role of an editor at toppis is a little bit of a misnomer at times. You know we're more like producers. You know we're we're out there scouting talent out there Building the creative team figuring out the budget and the production schedule where Overseeing the creative and on top of that you know were very much involved in like the margining aspects You know how the marketing gets deployed how the PR's but together What the ROI IN PNL sheets looked like at the end of the day So We're kind of like jack-of-all-trades In terms of like the the holistic view of of how a story gets put together you know from start to finish And I would say that it creates an interesting rhythm in like the Creative Endeavor Rate. Were you know on one part yet to think of? How do I get the best creative at these creators? What type editorial style will really inspire them to put out their best work. No some creators need a lot of hand holding and a lot of one on one time whereas there other creators. Who have been doing this for so long or might be new and have supreme amount of confidence that might not need as much hand holding On the flip side you know as pseudo marketers. You know we're always trying to push ourselves in terms of you know. We have a really creative drive at Tapas. You know our goal is to tell stories..

"You've got to be there are so few jobs in the one thing. I'll say is, you know, if if you're not seven feet tall, you better. Be Chris Paul Kemba Walker. You've got you've got to have an unbelievably unique skill set to be able to make it to the NBA football is dangerous. And and who knows if? I was going to be around in twenty five. Yeah. And nobody knows what the future of that game is going to be. That's why I always I never quite understand. Why more kids don't choose baseball? Because they don't want to go live in you know, where like they thinking about trace Thompson. So his older brother clay is a star in the NBA making one hundred million dollars. Right. All right trace who was a good athlete. Good football player. Good baseball. Michael always says, his favorite sport was baseball. So they encouraged him to chase it because that were that's where his passion was. But traces spent part of it's been because of injuries, but traces spent a ton of time in the minors that he's got a job right there. There aren't sodas clerk Arnaud minors in the NFL. And there are no minors in the NBA. Right. But my point is sodas claimed clay makes a lot more money. Well what? But which would well let me just ask you would. Would Michael son. Be a good basketball player trace. Yeah. I think if he well because clay's brother didn't make it in the NBA. He did he played briefly for the Cavs. And I think he had a Cup of coffee and now he's overseas or something I think he's I think he's finally stopped playing, and he's helping run Claes foundation and do all that stuff. But he's the oldest Mikey. He's the old. But he he did make it all the way the NBA which is hard to do. But I'm saying other main base paint ever had to go live. Like I'd have to ask Michael, Michael. Hey, Michael, you listen back there, he stopped. He is not even one of our listeners. The why I waved him in here, and then will take him because of his hip, it'll take them twenty minutes. He'll limp in sooner. So when we come back before fasttrack, we'll ask Michael because I will ask him if trace added to do over, right? Would he have gone to baseball because traces lived in a lot of small towns and Michael's gone to visit them in all these places, right and Julia has to I think if you're a young black high school athlete, the reason you gravitate towards football and basketball is because you don't have to go to the mine. Okay. We'll we'll get Michael starts on it and act he'd just limped in. We'll talk about next Mason and Ireland ESPN LA. I what is going on. Michael Thompson excited to see. You it fiesta Friday this Friday. Yeah. It's going to be so much fun. What goes on this city of orange were partying their party five dollar Mexican food like Mexico Mexican food second best buy? Yeah. I'll buy you a by any all the Mexican four dollar L humidor shot. How about that? What does that? It's a fantastic liquor. You gotta try bed. Bit hit. You know, if you actually buy them and actual humidor, and he can put his cigars. All right. So Michael, the question Mason asked me was, you know, I I was making the argument to him that young black high school kids have to make a choice if they're really good athletes. And the reason we gonna bring you in is your sons were good at multiple sports while just I'll read the exact paragraph, and this is Tim Anderson who is the shortstop for the White Sox. Who's currently got the best batting average in the American League. He wants at risk kids to pick up of that. He says football is dangerous basketball is for physical freaks, but an otherwise unremarkable child can dedicate himself to baseball and give himself a shot at the collegiate level. And that question, I the reason I said kids might not do it because they gotta go bounced around the minors your youngest son trace, I think most people know is in the Indian system right now. But he picked baseball any and he's had to want not had to watch gotten to watch clay become a hugely successful..
