Thanks. Carney. Tell the audience what is cover and why did you start it? Sure. So cover is a multi line. National insurance entity our customers, take pictures and videos of things they want to ensure using your mobile apps, and we get them insurance. So we are a marketplace risk operate in forty nine states were thirty different. Carrier partners are understanding up some of our own insurance products simultaneously. How did you navigate the idea maze? That is any company you could have started insurance. Yes. So, you know, myself my co founders have been building consumer facing product, specifically, naked mole products for a number of years now a prior to, to cover we built, a company called style kick, which sold high end fashion on the internet is native mobile app grew that, too, but a million active users, and that was featured in eighty countries in the front pages, the app store, translated into fourteen languages, so we got very good at building sexy, consumer facing experiences and findings. Efficient distribution for them. And so we that that company joining shop, a fi while we're at shop fi running a mobile product team. We were exploring a variety different verticals that we thought we would want to build into, you know, we knew wanted to build a consumer facing product, we, we knew that we wanna do native mobile again.

G tech business with world leading experts. Hey, everybody. Welcome to another episode adventure stories by village global here today with Dan held co-founder interchange. Dan, welcome to the show. Thanks Rodney arc Dan. You you've been doing a lot of writing recently about about bitcoin about proof of work that energy and a bunch topics. We were going to get into I want to talk a little bit about a bitcoins or destroy you wrote a series of pieces around planting a bitcoin using that as as a metaphor. Can you sort of talk about the inspiration for why he wrote that piece and unpack what that piece of that series was about. Yes. So I started to write planting bitcoin in early twenty eighteen kind of interesting story behind it. Which was that? I was on the way back from Tahoe. With a couple of my friends. You might you might know one he'll Carlson and would Jill told the on the way back. She goes, you know, what? So Toshi is brilliant in for the listeners of the show as totally not Komodo was the creator. Bitcoin. She goes, you know, Soto she's brilliance wasn't just in his code wasn't just in how he built bitcoin. It was in his go to market strategy, and as a marketer that really appealed to me in you know, I've worn a couple of different hats ARCHE being one of them really appeals to me in started digging deeper, and then really kind of fell down the rabbit hole in terms of looking at house Toshi launched bitcoin. And that's where I came up at the narrative, planting bitcoin, and to kind of dive into what I mean by planting bay coin these brilliance wasn't just in this species of tree that he chose to plant, but it was the season the soil in the gardening techniques that were e- equally as important, and you know, we can kind of go a lot of different directions diving into this. But that's kind of a high level of what planting bitcoin is about. Let's let's let's start at the beginning. While won't be over on by one still Soto she win he created bitcoin species. Bitcoin. He took snippets of genetic code from other previous attempts at making crypto currency or making money. And so those previous attempts were like hash cash by Adam back and bid gold by Nick salvo in reusable proof awards health any institution took those snippets of code and put those together kind of Frankenstein them in a way, I think the Senate very eloquent way of putting it, but he he he crisper genetic code together to assemble bitcoin in the organism and in terms of the code that he chose to pick. How do you choose the right snippets of code together? So totally understood in really looked into the history of money in what what makes good money in. So if we use the analogy that money is like an organism so Toshi look to endow bitcoin with certain genetic code at manifests itself. Freights to to make it a superior money to give it the highest advantageous chances for survival. And those traits of money. That we talk that that I reference are the parameters of money that makes money a good money. And what that is. For example. It's fungibility the idea that one dollar that used the grocery store is worth the exact same as another dollar used another grocery store. It's divisible I need to be able to denominate down to very small amounts up to large amounts. It's durability. If dollar bills, you know, if I washed, my jeans with my dollar bills made in they just kind of fell apart in that in the washing machine. That's not adorable enough money. I think gold is a really great representation of durability. Does it doesn't tarnish over time? You know, in terms of its visibility is very malleable. And

"Hey, everybody. It's Eric torbert, co-founder partner, village, global eight network driven venture firm, and this is metro stories. A podcast covering topics, the g. tech business with world leading experts. Hey, everybody welcome to another episode adventure stories by village global on here today joined by my co host Zeke crush of meta stable and a sunny Aggarwal cosmos. Sunny, welcome to the podcast. Thanks for having me on welcome local study today. The topic's going to be on blockchain. Interoperability is obviously a big topic in a lot of area, very active researches. You yourself a relic wanted, so I guess it starts off. Let's define what the problem is. So what the hell's blockchain, interoperability, hey, Asher. So I guess I could start off by say that it is a very undefined problem right now. Like when different people say blocking interoperability, there usually are actually talking about oftentimes very different things. So you have people talking about things like atomic swaps or intellegere protocol. You have kind of stuff that I'm more focused on, which is like inter blockchain communication. And so we can jump into all of these. But especially at the end of the day, it's really a way of. That's right now. Almost every chain is sort of like stuck in his own little world, and there's no way to like, do anything between exchanges other than going through central operators. So you know, yes, we can exchange coins today, but like the only way to do that is by going through centralized exchanges who are like, you know, maybe running the software of multiple blocks. And so you know when people are talking about blockchain, interoperability usually popping about some way like up doing some decentralized protocol in which it allows different Blockchain's too. You know, you can trade between Blockchain's or you can send assets between Blockchain's insent data between Blockchain's things like that. And so for the sake of completeness, why is this an important problem? I mean, we already have exchanges when you can trade assets and people seem to be roughly fine with the status quo. What can't we do that we might want to do. So I guess with the comes to exchangers install, no, I think these major centralized exchanges we see today are are sort of acute central points of failure. And especially when it comes to regulatory concerns, they are sort of like this impediment to like a lot of innovation and the exchanges that are like that try to go around, like, you know, try to take more cipher. Punk approach are like they've been working, but like now they're like even they're starting to like ball, pray to regulatory issues. Like, you know, the obvious example in this month is shaped ship is like going to lot of legal troubles there, I believe. And then also the side that interoperability that I'm actually personally more focused on is the scale ability side of things where I think this is sort of a very naive way of putting it. But like let's say one blockchain. Could you x. amount of throughput while anyone ten through. Put, how do you do that? Well, easy. You just make ten Blockchain's now you have connects through quick as long as they can sell talk to each other. So obviously that's a little bit of a toying dummy, like example, it's obviously a lot more complicated than that, but essentially, that sort of like the main idea like, you know, we want a single threaded system like when you look at like Cebu architectures or anything today, right in computers, you know, you're basically never running on a single threaded system anymore. You're always running on multi threaded.

"Hey, everybody. It's Eric, torbert, co-founder partner, Philip global eight network driven venture firm, and this is metro stories. A podcast covering topics g. tech business with world leading experts. Hey, everybody welcome to another episode adventure stories by Bill global. We're here today talking about US joined by Mao Snyder, Antoni Shane Mosley. Pleasence uses. My name is mild Snyder. I recently left multiple and capital where I was leading research to launch an US block producer candidate called your your first. So so why what's what's the promise? Why? Why usage it procedures position at a multi degree permanent molding going to take on this adventure shirt. I'm sure we'll get into sort of the deeper layers of the reasoning why I find the us be interesting and promising, but ultimately I join multi going a little over a year ago. I was actually the first employee and I came on board to to lead research efforts. And the reason that I want to do that was because doing research, any crypto, hedge fund is a really great way to get a macro view of the industry and sort of taking top down protein and you all these different trends and things like that. And my goal is to to do that for while eventually find some sort of entrepreneurial patent space. And originally, I thought that would take a few years, but I've been following your s closely since the project's launch of action following the developer, Dan larimer before that he had some other projects, and I kind of knew that the text. Doc? Well, in the architecture that uses southbound, he goes to be very interesting and multi coin invested heavily any. And I was doing a lot of research on that front, a few different pieces specifically about it. And as I spend more time researching it and for debrum protocol, I really thought that it was one of the more interesting things going on in the space and the place where I wanted to spend more and more more and more by time and kind of focus Laver. It's on and being a block research really interesting opportunity within the US good system because it sort of allows you to create a kind of a hug wooden within the us community and to do a lot of really cool things. And to some extent influence the direction gurgle tastes. So let's get into what is US and wind blade. So that is a two part question and attack. The so what is your US is a smart contract platform. It's a blockchain. It's also been described as a decentralized operating system, which I think is kind of an interesting way to describe it. Some people have called it a Dow, but essentially the biggest analog currently in crypto is you're right. It's a platform for building dabs and for deploying smart contracts. And so that is what ios is, but it just takes a very different approach than does or any other competitors within the face. So what tends to do is great. This quote, unquote, decentralized operating system, people can can deploy Dashon, and that includes the ability to run this trust lers decentralized computation as well as some other features that US will be introducing the future, including like a storage protocol and things like that and the the details. Again, there is it takes a much different set of. Trade offs in your doesn't theorem really maximizes for decentralisation central, the central Asian at the expense of performance, and.

Freshers all hours. I guess. Thank you for having us. This is long awaited, yes, let me start because they're going to break the internet yet. Sarim one. Perhaps you can introduce yourself. For future deffers you should call me the good looking. Again, I am stream Persson if this was Highland writing, I should be the last one standing like I should be Christopher Lambert with the good hair. So quick backstory on me, I currently run a bunch of product teams on consumer side at Twitter. Previously, I work at other social companies. I spend many years at Facebook working on the ads product. I spent a year at snap working on revenue there and before that, you know, is it a bunch of other tech companies?

I mean, you know, if you if you're over seven feet, I think you have like a a sanely high present chance of making the NBA. I think you have a hundred percent of the people ask me to play, and then you feel bad because you're out of shape and you can't dunk dunk and. Wrong with you. There's a very tall guy who had a card, and that says, yes, I'm tall, yes, yes. The weather is not not very different up here should have one of those. I did. I go through every conversation question for you guys. Do you think it's easier for the average person United States? Any person random is easier for that person to make the NBA or become president? Chances are higher for what? Which one? I think in this current climate given who the president is right now, if you like, is a far more likely chance for anyone to be president than an NBA star. I feel I'd be an MBA Saric quiz years of discipline and rigor and which obviously doesn't apply in this. I think. Nunn's Martin or his conduct. I guess I can. Okay. We're not going to Baltics.

Hey, everybody welcome to another episode adventure stories by village global of here today to special guests Arianna Simpson of Thomas partners and Travis claim rounder Iki guy Zachary Schrafft's. Yeah, thanks for having me cruciate what's up Arianna. Hi there as well. Awesome around your this. Great post cold balls, precision on token daily. Talk about what some of the main tenants of that post in what you were trying to cheat in it. Yeah. So you know, I big fan of of math and everybody likes to feel like you've done their homework in really dug into the details and come out with a clean solution on put the. The argument of the post was really that we have to try to carefully in that respect because I think there still so many unknowns in terms of how crypto networks are going to function. You know, how velocity is gonna play into the equation is lost even like a key metric that we need to be looking at or is it other things that are really going to. More influential on the price of a token. You know, there's, there's really a ton of unknown. So while we have specific formulas that help us evaluate businesses. You know, on the equity side, I think we are still vow parts of Mitch equations, whether it's coming from, you know how we value currencies or how we businesses, how do those pieces mesh together. And I do think this is fundamentally new asset class, and so we just haven't figured out exactly the appropriate structures. So I was trying to encourage people to be a little bit cautious when out with with new equations or formulas evaluation methods because you run the risk of saying, oh, you know, I've got this great formula and it sounds really smart, and it's very precise, but it can be very precisely wrong. And so you know, my sense is that you have to. Yeah, sure. Do the mass look at valuations under a number of different scenarios, but also be a little bit open minded because you may just be off by an order of magnitude. And so it's more important to be directionally, correct than you know. Zeisler wrong. You've given a lot of thought to have value crevasses in different valuations remarks, and I'd like you to give a little history of how we've collectively as space thought about it. The last couple of years up till now we've ended a little bit at some of the approaches that maybe conceptualize it a little bit at and then also you've also thought about different valuation frameworks for store value vers political platform. Tokens was different other types of utility tokens. So because the more about that as well. Sure. China back that a little bit. Not not take too long. The real easy to go ninety minutes to answer that question, but you know. Simplistically we like to look at total addressable market. I total dreadful market makes a lot of sense, especially for stores value. Whether that's goal value in one in.

"torbert co" Discussed on Venture Stories

"Hey, everybody. It's Eric torbert, co-founder partner, village, global aid network driven venture firm, and this is metro stories. A podcast covering topics, AG tech business with world leading experts. Hey, everybody welcome to another episode adventure stories by Bill global. We're here today to discuss identity and reputation at, and I'm here with very exciting guests dental LIZA issues. Hut. I'm Dan Lin software engineer working on a reputation based project called sore spreads, which is spoken on on creating reputation identity for open source developers, and I use, they them pronounce, and I'm very glad to rather me. Awesome. In the history of of grade, what would inspired you to start it? And we'd problems out salt. So I've actually been thinking about identity reputation for a long time about two two and a half years ago. I was reflecting on how having a legible reputation system really just helped people collaborate, help people know that they can trust each other help move people into like like building long-term relationship stories. We and time I really wanted to build a pay drank based reputation system where you could kind of like sea Basant, who you trust, who are the people you trust in turn transit of Louis and the trouble was I started thinking about how to build this, and I was thinking maybe it'll be like yelp or Facebook and wound up being super dystopia. Next kind of like a black mirror episode when I've ever played it on. I put that on the shelf for a couple of years, much unrelated stop in. And then a couple of months ago I was thinking about how now that we have scriptural tokens. There's this possibilities reward, open source developers were maybe instead of laboring kind of in the shadows without without getting any any monetary reward. Open source. Developers could start to earn. Currencies related to the projects they're directly working. And when you start to think about this, you kind of need some sort of reputation system to figure out even that you were going to say, give crypto tokens and say, if you're, how would you decide which developers actually deserve the credit for having made really important contributions for your AM? And that's why I think you need a reputation system that allows you to have the community come together and decide who do we think is reputable who has enjoyed a lot of value in certain parts of the project. And the goal of source essentially is build out a reputation system like that. So that for given open source project, begin answer the question who deserves credit for. And what is the little bit deeper her audience you may not be as what do you think are the major problems of like behind identity? Reputation that we kind of have to that reputation like it's it's really not very legible system. You've also read seeing states. I think a lot about like have whether things are externally right now, everyone has touched people that they trust, but it's very hard to figure out where the people who your friends trust that we're the people who may be like everyone in your community trusts. And if you're in a very small.
