Bitcoin Mining With North America's Largest Miner
"Our guys bang bang. Got fred here. Thank you so much for doing this. Thank you great to be here absolute. Let's get started with marathon in kind of your background. So marathon is one of the largest. Bitcoin miners in north america. What did you do before you on the board and then became the see you so twenty. Five plus years running technology companies across a variety of sectors. Fintech was a big one. Matter of fact my first programming job was at a bank so grew up really understanding the friction. The financial markets was had the good fortune taking some companies public. Doing a lot of a and then switch to the dark side became a private equity managing partner and did leveraged buyouts tech companies and then started advising really large funds and tech companies. I had known the ceo. Marathon merrick former ceo now executive chairman for many years socially or kids grew up together and i joined the board in two thousand eighteen. Really that help him with kind of the transition to bitcoin. Mining and blockchain always been fascinated by blockchain. I think it's a great leveler. If you look at kind of how the internet developed and brought kind of the democratization of information i think people exposing data on the blockchain is going to change. How businesses operate imagine companies like salesforce. Who effectively hold your crm data hostage. If all that data around the block chain not only could use salesforce taxes and gained benefit from it. But you could use other applications. I think there's just a were so early in this blockchain development. Bitcoin cryptocurrencies. Just one part of it. I'm a big believer in the bitcoin. Blockchain foundation for financial institutions very secure fully decentralized network. You know you can say other things about ethier. Money has some great benefits. But it's still is less decentralized than the bitcoin blockchain and there's just so much you can do so. I was very excited at the opportunity to step into more of an operating a marathon. And i think now's the time where you'll see. The miners become more professional. Companies were real enterprises. If you just look at the build out plans most of us have you know. We'll be billion dollar revenue companies within the next year and a half to two years and those become big companies and they need to be run in a proper way with good

It goes to things like antitrust approval alike and that takes about six to eight weeks but the next phase is sitting down with the partnership at vista and continue to have conversations about where we want to take the growth of triple lift.

So how'd the conversations like post closing differ. Well now it's real so now we're we're the nature of the discussions are different. Because we're we're on the same side focused on the same goals as a company. We think about things differently now.

Interview with Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky
"Talk to me about going forward and connecting people and the focus. You're putting on experiences but also on the lives you can create for your host. Who in part. I think are taking equity and becoming quite important for the brand. We've just heard in london here this week. That uber has said its drivers will become workers with benefits and minimum wage. So they're getting brought into the companies. So how do you sort of to advance the experience of your host but also the people that are using the platform to rent yet to great questions. Maybe i'll start with the second question host. And then i'll go to the first one the different like let's just take us versus uber. One difference in us an uber is the founders of uber created uber because they wanted to be writers another words they said it would be awesome if i could summon a black car so they started on the buyer side. We were totally opposite. My roommate and i weren't desiring to have a service like airbnb to travel because we were too broke to even want such a service. I mean we would have loved it but we were so broke. We just wanted to way to make money so we really started as host. So in that sense. I think this is a company of hosts by host for host and even if we have veered from that in the past. We're back there. And so i'm very proud of the fact that number one host have made one hundred and ten billion dollars on our platform since we started. That's pretty cool. The next thing. I'm saying i think it's cooler. Fifty five percent of that income has gone to women most ecommerce platforms. The vast majority economics. They're not evenly distributed on airbnb. The vast majority of income is outside the united states and more than half of it goes to women. it's a pretty diverse audience. We have four million host on airbnb. Ninety percent of our hosts are individual people so there is a question. How many of these are professionals. The answer is ten percent ninety percent of individuals. The most common careers are healthcare workers schoolteachers. In students these are the three most common professions that we've seen so these are truly everyday people like my parents. My parents are social workers. And it would make sense that people who need supplemental income would be everyday people for the most part one of the things we did before it went public. Is i got a piece of advice from somebody. They said. institutionalize your intentions. So that even as a public company you can minimize conflicts. Your vision and what they really meant was wants to go public. The cement of your company gets a little harden. What do you want to bake into the company before you go public. And i said one of the things i want to bake in is to create a host endowment. I want to set aside equity for host and so one of the things we did is we took nine point. Two million shares of airbnb equity and we put it into is essentially a airbnb host endowment kind of like a college endowment where it would grow every year but then some of the appreciation would get distributed into the host each year. So that was the idea that endowment is nearly two billion dollars today and growing. I hope it's one day. Larger than most college endowments and we created a host advisory board of seventeen host from fourteen countries to advise us on how to spend that money and reinvest it back to the host community. We also allowed host to invest in our ipo. And we had. I think it was fifteen thousand host. If i'm not mistaken who invested. They bought stock at sixty eight dollars. A share as you know the stock prices at the time of this recording around triple so those hosts have done really well and if i could allowed winning more host to invest in the whatever but we had some sec regulations that limited us and so these are just some of the many things we tried to do. But i just want to say like our commitment to host just beginning. Because i've committed to putting more than one hundred million dollars in my own equity into the host endowment and we're gonna continue to invest in our host because we are nothing without our host and in the end the day everybody's more of a community anything else i mean. Yeah we are a technology company in a sense but with people are buying isn't technology and they're not buying real estate we're not like zillow wh- senator of our company our host and our people and so that leads to the second question. What is airbnb about in. Where's it going when we started airbnb. Our first tagline was travel like a human. The idea was that you were like kind of treated for who you are. And you're seen for who you are valued for who you are and that was kind of the idea. I mean it was idealistic. But i can tell you. We definitely believed it in the early days and we realized that i had these two crazy ideas when we start airbnb. These crazy beliefs and people thought i was absurd. The first idea was we thought people were fundamentally good. That sounds kind of crazy because if you open any newspaper you wouldn't think they're good. People are good wise every headline about the worst of humanity. I think there was a famous quote by a former chief justice. The united states. You said i don't read the front page of the newspaper. I read the sports section. The front pages filled the man's failures. The sports pages. Filled man successes. I kind of feel like despite what we read in the news. People are funny. Good and i can tell you that we have the data to prove it. We probably more than anyone to prove what happens. When a hundred million people live together. Mostly good things sometimes bad things but statistically people are good and the second thing is true is that people are ninety nine point nine percent the same and you would never think that today given that we are so divided and yeah we spent a lot of time energy celebrating that point one percent. That makes us different. We call that culture in other things but let's not forget that we're mostly the same deep down and if you think people are good and their most the same then you'd believe that it's better to bring them together than divide them in separate them. That was the idea behind airbnb and so real estate and housing is just the beginning. We launched a few years ago. Airbnb experiences air experiences are essentially just three hour activities where you can have a host host. One other passions. You can go to tuscany. And make pasta with grandma grandma. Non an arena. Who's like an eighty plus year old grandmother who grew up during world war. Two and tells you about living in italy during the rise of fascism and then kind of what happened after and she tells you about her famous recipe and you make pasta in her house with and then you eat around the table this alternative to going to restaurants a pretty cool alternative so we have these like really interesting experiences and i think experiences is going to be a really really big product. I thought last year was going to break out year. But of course social distancing met we put on pause but we're looking at many new ways to try just connect people again. I think this is one of the loneliest times in human history right now. I think most people listening would probably say they felt some type of loneliness in the last year. We've been so separated. And i think in life we sometimes appreciate things when they're taken away from us and human connection and travels been taken away from us and i hope that makes us value at more than ever before and i'm pretty concerned about the amount of isolation happening and i don't think that social media and digital connections are fully nourishing. We actually do need real connection with real people. And i actually think it's good. Connect people are different than you. If you wanna like bridge the divide in any country. The best answer. I've heard is to just walk in other people's shoes don't argue over the internet. No one's ever changed. Someone's mind on a youtube comment section to my knowledge. But how could you not change your mind when you walk in someone. Just home live in their home walk. In their shoes do their activities. You may not agree with them but you will find that. Most of them are good and they're mostly just like you deep
Baidu has rallied 200% in the past year. Analysts bet it can keep going as it lists in Hong Kong
"Of chinese internet giant by do edged up eight tenths of a percent in its secondary listing today on the hong kong stock exchange. The gains paled in comparison to one's by other chinese tech giants including quite show which surged more than one hundred ninety percent last month. Such listings have been dubbed homecomings for chinese companies that also trade on us stock exchanges. David quoque cofounder of the smart investor explains why investors gave by do such a muted perception in hong kong. Why is by to even going to hong kong in the first place. It's already got twenty four billion in the bank. So why is it going to hong kong just to raise three billion. us dollars. And that i think is the question that investors asking. It's not the only technology stocks that has seen sort of a lackluster performance. I think jd dot com saw a bigger rise than by did today but still not anywhere near what were used to sing in public offerings. Do you think this is a problem of an oversaturated market of these so-called homecomings for chinese companies. I think it's also partly because investors have got their eyes on possible interest rate rises and consequently they are saying that technology companies are not really sort of the place to be right now ultimately when you have a look at some of these technology companies particularly the ones that already have a primary listing in america. They are coming home to hong kong and part of that. Reason is because they are very concerned about the frosty relationship between america and china and if that frosty relationship turns into a big freeze then of course they want to have some way in which they can. Select listing where they can attract chinese investors. David co founder of the smart investor in singapore. Thanks for breaking this down

"Alibaba shares falling today. After the company's web browser was pulled from app stores and china the move follows comments from chinese president. Xi jinping calling for increased scrutiny on big tech she sang regulators. Need to fill in gaps and loopholes when it comes to chinese tech companies dan. You're saying that one of the worst looking charts and the market is of h chinese tech company. And it's alibaba. I mean the news flow has been downright horrible for months now the stock has been very volatile If you look at it right here down from i think about two seventy five to just about two twenty six to twenty seven right here sitting right on a massive technical support. Look at that chart. It's a massive head and shoulders formation. Here really has to hold here. The news flow has gone from bad to worse. I'll leave that For tim but it seems like the chinese government is seriously looking to clamp down on this company and some of their entities. And i just think you want to be careful below those recent lows below two twenty. I get that really clamping down a harshly would be cutting off your nose to spite your face in way because these are these are national champion companies. Tim at the at the same time. They are requiring alibaba to do things like divest. Some of its businesses like ant financial that could really transform these businesses. And how they're valued. Yeah i actually more worried about this I you know alibaba media assets including what they hold in some american companies like twitter. But also billy billy which is a online video gaming platform it's a forty billion dollar company mean. The these are part of the nuggets of value. That i i actually like in owning alibaba so i'm not surprised that the regulator actually needs to do their job. I'm not surprised that they're they're doing. They're they're slapping on the risk. Call it the companies that have been front running the government. But it's the entire china tech sector. That's under pressure and the irony of this is is that this. Is you know where we were fighting. Many of our kind of geopolitical wars over the last couple years with china really control the internet called the next wave of technology companies which china wants to put them out there. I i don't run to the door at these levels. I gotta tell you to twenty very big support on bobbled

I thought heavens we were in boston. Nitsa summer we talk about the red sox or we talk about the weather or something in one of them. Raise the question. What do you think would be the technology that most might reshape the relationship between consumers and patients and clients constituents individuals and the various organizations that work with on a daily basis. Peter retailer healthcare provider financial services institution. What technology is going to be most important between individuals in those organizations. Will you ask that question.

The persona of a brand with you all the time listening to you speaking to you responding to with a that led to research that led conversations and that led to a big question which was if we think this is all going to be so exciting and tremendous and transformational. What would it take. What must be true in order for that to happen. And it's from that question. The open voice network then began to emerge very cool. So you like your background was in retailing. All these different companies. You're with your title kinds of things. Were you in technology. At the time. I was no evanson in the retail.

There has to be some kind of engagement. Some usability for people like you know the the tech you can get crazy unhappy about it all day long. But if you're not communicating to the the actual consumer that you want to consume it it's null and void so that's that's a fascinating angle that you had will. You're absolutely right you just absolutely right that it has to start with the user. It has to start with the individual who's using technology. You know. I was back in the retail days than retail technology. Days talking about such things as we don't was a big idea. Let's put a back in the days of tablets. Where the hottest thing. Let's stick a tablet on a shopping cart and by golly then we can you know just tap away in shop away an inter things in have prices and everything right there in our shopping cart from a technology perspective very exciting.

What's the latest coming from the great great technology companies.
