Fresh update on "one hundred million dollars" discussed on CoinDesk Podcast Network
"Of that context. Let's look at some of these financings that have been announced over the last few weeks and see if we can parse out what they mean. Let's start with an teas and if we're obviously one of the hottest areas in crypto earlier this year there were also one of the earliest areas to see price declines. It was a classic situation. Where for a while there. Anything with the letters t attached to them was expensive. Since the peak though average transaction value is down fifty percent average price of an nf t sales down fifty percent and weekly trade volume is down about seventy five percent. the question is has funding for new projects. Also left the space not at all. You literally can't go a day without seeing more funding for some new. Nfc platform to take just today for example and if t marketplace rare will raise fourteen point two million led by van rock one of the oldest venture firms in the world in may jay z. Joined the nine hundred million dollar round of the sherifi for nfc's bisky and even bigger from a numeric standpoint. Is that last week. We learned that fox. Entertainment is putting one hundred million dollars nine figures baby behind it's project they're trying to make quote the first ever animated series curated entirely on the blockchain. And they're doing it with rick. And morty creator. Dan on the show. Propolis will quote feature blockchain related content from character development. Right up through the premier night in twenty twenty two. They're also launching blockchain creative labs so what's the takeaway here. I you have both entertainment and traditional venture capital investing serious figures in the space. That means either a. They're super late to the hype train or be. They're convinced that there is something real here that is going to matter longer than the crazy price of teas when things popped earlier this year. I continue to think that we'll look back at and t's the first true splinter from crypto in other words a crypto powered phenomenon that in the long run most people. Don't even associate with crypto. However we talk about it then but now let's move on to defy. Many were surprised. That defy didn't have a chance to shine before this bearish sentiment came crashing. I sort of think we may need to adjust how we see this cycle and mark the beginning. Around the time of paul tudor jones great monetary inflation thesis and the resilience of bitcoin. Post covid rather than late last fall. If that's the case defy did have its moment. I e defy summer. But that's a topic for another episode. It's still worth asking now that so. Many tokens are fifty to seventy percent off their all-time highs is the flow of fund interest. Receding again big fat. No last week. The defy exchange dx announced a sixty five million dollar race this one was more defying crypto insiders with paradigm leading. But it's still shows how much dry powder those insiders have and speaking of serious dry powder check out. The three hundred fourteen million raised by salona an alternative for defy this was led by a sixteen z and polly chain and obviously gives them a ton of runway to work with regardless of what market cycle comes next then. There is bit doubt bit. Dow was a new approach to defy financing. That is itself decentralized. The product is being spearheaded in part by by bit who have committed a sheriff futures contract trading volume. That could be worth a billion dollars a year or more. Based on this year's run rate the dow also raised two hundred and thirty million dollars though from other investors led by peter thiel founders fund patera and dragonfly the last two are obviously crypto insiders but teal and founders on the outskirts billionaire traditional financier-turned crypto. Financier howard also participated. So what's the takeaway from just this. Small sample of defy deals won. The space is going to remain extremely. Well capitalized even if we.

At uncovers thousands of business ideas and gives you the steps to execute. Here are just a few things recently discussed how to build a community that brings in twenty million dollars a year. We break down three different paid communities making at least twenty million dollars a year and explain exactly how they work and we're opportunities are for other paid communities. What about one hundred million dollars a year while creating a course is likely the easiest way to make a million bucks. We show you how people are doing it and how some are getting over one hundred million dollars in sales every year. There's even a guy doing a city tour new york making one million dollars a year. His business mafia walking tours in new york city. We show other tours that can be done and how the business really works bradley. Jacobs you've likely never heard of has started five multibillion dollar companies in different industries. We break down his strategy and show where else it can be applied search for my first million on your podcast app. All right back to the show. This was the most common question that people wanted me to ask you. Whenever i put out on twitter that we were going to be talking and it really revolves around smart contracts and decentralized finance or defy and because people know that you really don't put up with the whole quote unquote schick. Coin are all coin being in the space or all the narratives that are around it and as a c. I think that that's given you a lot of credence in the space. But when we look at defy and we look at smart contracts it almost seems like every single entity that is trying to do something in this space is issuing some type of token and you have rootstock that is happening in coordination with bitcoin. You have sovereign that's happening in coordination with bitcoin. You have stacks. That's happening in coordination with bitcoin. But they all have an inherent token that's associated with them. So what are your thoughts on. Is this something that has to take place in order for smart contracts to be a thing on top of bitcoin or is there going to be something else. That's a little bit different than that that you think kind of wins out in the end. Well they certainly don't all have association with a token right. Because you know that i'm on. The board of directors have flocked stream and block stream has liquid network which is a side chain to bitcoin and liquid network. Of course doesn't have a token. I'm not sure that token is necessary. But you're right that some of the most exciting activity in the bitcoin. Space right now is strictly around smart contracting and i would say multiplex smart contracting so greater capabilities of smart contracts. of course that's related to defy. So maybe maybe you'll give me the opportunity to elaborate on some ideas that i would have wanted to discuss earlier at bitcoin miami. On my piano we sorta ran out of time. But i think that you know the big win space right now is kind of so dynamic that it's hard to fit it. All into a twenty minute panel especially hard moderators not trying to fit it into a twenty minute panel. Frankly it's just as shiny on and sexy as any of the activity happening in other spaces and so it's fortunate to have opportunity to talk about that today. So maybe if. I could just mention a few that i want to get ahead of myself so i wanna start by saying that. I'm focused on. Bitcoin versus all coin spaces really because bitcoin is where their sound tack and because bitcoin is where there's a stable and secure protocol that can be built upon and so of course as avi see my job is to deplete capital into companies that are building in sort of a sound tech state. We don't have control over open source development in a decentralized blockchain system and so because of that we have to acknowledge the state of the system without thinking that we will have influence on it undue influence on it and given those dynamics that's been the options are pretty limited right bitcoin so now talk a little bit about smart contracting opportunities that exist in the bitcoin space and please feel free to cut me off. I'd be happy to dig in anywhere. Something that i've been looking at since really twenty. Fourteen is the concept of automated rev share and so in twenty fourteen. Twenty fifteen something like this. There was a company called stem out of los angeles. The company still in existence today but in twenty fifteen or twenty fourteen. They were focused on automating rev share through programmable bitcoin basically and what that meant to them was that collaborative contributors in the music space could sort of establish a smart contract that they would agree to an advance and that would automate the sharing of payments. That happened on platforms like spotify and to of course this company was just sort of ahead of their time really bright so the capability for got was rough then but it exists now and so. That's a space that i'm quite interested in. So that's automated revenue share space. Which can today be done on liquid. We see that with a company like allen. Bits for example in their split payment extension. And i think that that will be a space that continues to develop and twenty twenty one and twenty twenty two. Maybe let me stop there. I just said made sense. It sounds a little bit like the the buzzword. Mft's where you're you got these. Non fungible tokens. Let's say you have a song that you create and then it's generating revenue because it's it's being streamed on whatever platform and then some of that revenue is coming back to the owner of that non fungible token that's associated with the song. Is that what you're getting at. And you're i think you're suggesting that like on liquid which doesn't have its own innate token that something like this could take place without their half in the be some type of gas fi. Most people equate to ethereal so for automated breath. Share the protocol that..

Danny Tomsett CEO of UneeQ Talks Virtual Humans
"You founded in two thousand and it wasn't like this was a university research project for you you. You've been working for a number of years at that point. What led you to find this company. What was the spark he said. Hey now the time is right. And there's there's a there is an opportunity here that we can take advantage of. Yeah like like. I said when we started in two thousand ten head the fortunate experience of Actually founding a telecommunications company and it's been a lot of time focused around technology that was in the customer service arenas context the software. I see iran and and other areas as well but one of the things that Became very to me was the way that Custom is when we were able to create a conversation that was face to face the impact on conversion experience and it promote schools and things like that was a very profound like very very much Multiple caught multiplication factors of two x four x In in those areas and so when we initially went out to solve the problem we still. Well when we look at creating frictions frictions video so that anyone who needs help on a website can click a button and talk to someone face to face and Back in two thousand ten was obviously reasonably novel and we had really good success with that. But it wasn't until you know we really rolling out. I've had several hundred customers that we started to save some bottlenecks and challenges with video agents. And how do you still create a strong value proposition. Where you you know. You've got still training shoes. You've got people challenges. Not iran wants to be on video with a human as well so all those kind of things that we were trying to figure out how does sky obita and we had the amazing opportunity with the australian government. Would talking to the about helping around People with disabilities and how they get welfare support through the government and the lead innovation. Chief innovation officer really bisi lighted out. It's it's one hundred million dollars plus problem if we do this with the video agents
To Solve Big Problems, Sometimes You Need a Contest
"Four years ago today. Charles lindbergh became the first person to fly solo nonstop across the atlantic. One of the reasons was to win. Twenty five thousand dollars in prizemoney. The orteig prize was one of the inspirations for the modern x prize. A competition aimed at solving big problems. The latest one to be announced is sponsored by john. Musk who promised one hundred million dollars for carbon removal technology to combat climate change. Musk's own spacex was likely inspired by the first ever launched in nineteen ninety-six. It offered ten million dollars to build a privately financed reusable spaceship. A new show on sorry is the ceo of the x prize foundation. She says that i prize created an industry. It's they're easy to look at. How many commercial. Space companies existed. How much funding was going to them. You know as an entrepreneur. When i look at it and see how this ten million dollars. broaden hundred million dollars into the teams who competed and then Nine look at the industry that's been created in the level of activity. I think we can Clearly draw a line that will show an exponential growth because of You know just changing the mindset and challenging. What was believed to be possible to this competition. Well it's interesting because ten million dollars of course a lot of money but in terms of seeding an industry it's really not right if you invested ten million dollars with a single company as opposed to planting it as a seed letting all these flowers grow. You wouldn't really have any system absolutely with a competition. You basically don't give the money to anyone until they show you that they have the solution. So you're guaranteed a solution before you spend the money so what better way to really get for you. Want and i think it's a beautiful model of especially when used you have problems that That complex and that innovation has been stagnant and competition can really change the game in those

Q1 Tesla Earnings Report and Shareholder Letter Analysis
"Our here and today we're going to go through with tesco's earnings report. They just reported earnings. They did deliver a beat reading through all the numbers here and then a couple of takeaways from the call and then we'll also after this livestream head into the earnings call and will livestream that as well. I'll take notes so make sure to check that out the link for that will be in the show notes but let's get into the numbers here so starting off with top line here we can see tussles. Total sales came in at just over ten point. Three billion ten point three eight nine billion as a little bit ahead of analysts consensus a little bit ahead of my numbers but basically in the right ballpark. We did see kind of a mixed. Though in between the categories automotive sales came in about where we expected but a lot of that was driven by regulatory credits. So tesla actually new record for regulatory credit sales. Quarter almost half. A billion dollars of fifty. Four percent more than expected for six percent higher than last year Fifty nine percent higher than what i had expected with three hundred twenty five million so that means that my average selling prices my forecast there were a little bit high. And tesla made up the difference there with regulatory credit sales energy sales so just about half a billion dollars there in revenue little bit below where the street had forecasted twelve percent below Thirty percent below where i had forecasted but still quite a bit of an improvement over year over year up seventy percent so if we look down here we can see that the reason i'm zoom in a little bit here. The reason that that happened was because tess only Four hundred and forty five megawatt hours of energy storage versus We look at you for almost three times more than three times that amount. So tesla definitely saw drop there in terms of energy storage That is leading to that lower revenue in energy sales. They also lost quite a bit of money on energy. You can see negative twenty percent gross margin there. That's definitely the lowest that we've ever seen from tesla and continues the down trend that we've been seeing for the last four quarters so not a great sign there but as we've seen tesla did raise the price on solar roof there now knowing solar with power wall. So they're doing a lot of things here to improve their profitability here. But we just haven't seen that come to fruition quite yet so hopefully over the next couple of quarters. Tessa can get that figured out. Because i was about one hundred million dollar drag on prophet which is pretty significant when we look at tesla's overall profitability
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

Are You On Clubhouse Yet? No? Here's What It Is And How To Get There.
"What is clubhouse. Well clubhouse is a new audio social media app well on this episode. I'm gonna tell you what i feel about clubhouse and how it has impacted me and so many. People clubhouse is big and fast growing and making continual headlines and yet it is still private. What do i mean by that. You have to be invited by an existing member of clubhouse to get and so just being on it remains something of a status symbol and some circles forbes dot com has an article titled have you joined clubhouse yet. We'll have you here says that clubhouse is a social media platform and has been sweeping the internet but with it comes an air of mystery and confusion that comes from one thing scarcity. Yep like i said you have to be invited. You can't just join clubhouse you have to be invited by someone may be a friend who has already a user much like a country club. Somebody who can recommend you who is already a part of clubhouse has to say come join me on this wonderful audio social media platform by way of texting you a special link but did you know that. The podcasting industry is expecting to pass one billion dollars. This year and the creators of clubhouse decided to turn podcasts on their head and make them into an interactive experience through clubhouse the writer of the forbes article goes on to say that one of the favorite things to do on the clubhouse app so far is to just join rooms with people you don't know and listen in on what they're talking about and that is fun. If you are on clubhouse you may have heard everything from the technical challenges to be faced on. Moore's the best for ai to take over the stock market and the best way to make grilled cheese sandwich. Why the civil war happened political views. Make tips dating advice and the list goes on and on etc etc. Some of the rooms get downright racy causing me to blush. But i have to admit that's really not too hard to do. Think about what talk radio is or used to be. And you'll get a glimpse into what clubhouse is all about and bonus you can potentially join the conversation or end up needing the conversation as a moderator but later in the forbes article the writer does say it's a lot like a podcast It is not podcasters. Keep the listeners. In a controlled setting and the podcast has a filter as far as editing goes and unlike the moderator in clubhouse the podcast or knows his guest and they talk about what can and cannot be said ahead of time and so it is clubhouse takes a little getting used to and might i add a lot of courage to raise your hand to speak. Oh yes you can speak. And here's the deal on speaking to be able to speak in a room or in a club. Two things must happen. Besides being in that particular room you must raise your hand by pressing the hand emoji on the right and the moderator must pull you up on stage to speak where everyone can hear what you have to say. Yikes sometimes i am just there to listen or contribute to the conversation it's still a little nerve racking and sometimes the moderator will automatically invite you on stage by sending an alert pox as soon as you enter the room. Don't worry you can always say maybe later and bonus there is a leave quietly button that you can push just in case you. Don't wanna be there anymore and you don't want tell anyone that you're leaving but keep in mind that if you go on stage there is no one to filter what you say. There was no bleep button. No editing there is no nothing and a recent issue of entrepreneur india. I found this freshly valued at one billion dollars. After a reported. One hundred million dollars funding for the clubhouse app. The audio chat platform has been a hit with silicon valley investors. I bet unexpected appearances on clubhouse from elon. Musk and mark zuckerberg to anthony hopkins as well as tons of entertainers and celebrities. And so it is all the entertainers politicians. The celebrities. the musicians have made clubhouse participants notice and become part of this incredible app the live clubhouse room five thousand people and was getting so overloaded with someone like elon musk that some individuals reportedly created secondary listening rooms on clubhouse as well as other platforms such as youtube so everyone could enjoy what the celebrity or entertainer was saying a few days later. Musk tweeted that he had agreed to do a clubhouse with american rapper and record producer kanye west ee. Leon also invited. Russia president vladimir putin for a conversation on the platform the kremlin described this proposal as Very interesting but added that they would need to understand what it was all about before committing in january clubhouse said that it was working on introducing a creator grant program. That's so cool. It's too monetarily. Support emerging clubhouse creators and unlike the large social networks that we all are common with which have monetize their audience by selling ads.

The Controversy Behind the FBA Rollup Strategy
"This is mike and welcome to this edition of the e com crew podcasts. How's it going dave. You make a better mood now. We got the chit chat a little bit and we were making fun of each other so before we even started the podcast. So we were talking about game stock game stock. You're talking about game stock. I was talking about the actual company. Game stop but that was. That was pretty funny. It is like the hardest name to say game stop stock for somebody dyslexic because me is even harder. Yeah there's one that i had to tell you about line. That's inappropriate for the podcast. I let something slip the day and the the warehouse here because there's a there's a tongue twister of products that i miss it. I misspoke was pretty funny. Definitely inappropriate for the For the podcast. There's definitely tongue twisters out there for sure. Yeah there are having a hard one game. Stop stock game. Stop stock in the speaking of crazy investments one of the the craziest investments. These days is people investing in what we do. You know these amazon companies. Because i think that a reality is people on wall street or people with lots of money in places all over the world or looking for ways to put their cash to work in a zero interest rate environment right and the reality is as you can buy an amazon business much like what we do with ice wraps or while baby or off roading gear or color it and get basically a thirty three percent cash on cash return which is a whole lot better than a half a percent interest in your in your bank account and so this is starting to really garner a lot of attention from third party investors out there. Yeah it's crazy. I guess that's kind of topic of this podcast. Are they crazy or the ecommerce owners selling the crazy ones because obviously there's been a huge fan of these roll ups. I was looking at a list. I think about least ten plus with over one hundred million dollars each and capitalization so they have over one hundred million dollars each just to go out and buy e. Commerce businesses specifically amazon businesses is. That seems to be really what they're going after for some reason they've ignored shop stores and like kind of traditional direct to consumer brands which are selling predominantly through their websites and focusing only on these amazon browns. And that's the interesting part i find. Is that the kind of ignoring the great unicorn businesses that we want you and most of our listeners. These websites which don't rely on amazon we want those businesses but the investors seem to amazon only businesses or at least predominantly amazon businesses. I think there's a good reason for that. I want to choose my words carefully here. I think a lot of the has to do with the fact that making money on amazon is kind of easy in a lot of ways. Right i mean again. We never try to make it sound easy and it isn't necessarily easy but on a scale of one to ten or a spectrum of things that you could be doing to make a living is on the easier end you know. There's a lot of things amazon. Takes care of that. You just don't have to think about that. Do make it easier. And you're comparing apples to apples between an amazon business and a direct to consumer shop affi- type store. The amazon one is easier to operate. There's there's no warehouse for you to have because amazon handles that. You don't need to handle returns amazon handles that you need very little customer service. Because amazon handles the bulk of that. You don't need to pick pack and ship. The items amazon handles out and they do it in a way. That is better than you'll ever be

New antitrust legislation would check the power of tech giants
"Arguably the biggest problem with big tech. Is you know the bigness. A few giant companies gobble up their competition owned the digital advertising and web hosting markets control the information ecosystem and sometimes control the distribution of their own competition so far though these worries haven't led to regulation now democratic senator amy klobuchar who leads the senate subcommittee on antitrust introduced a bill intended to check the power of tech. Giant's it focuses mostly on acquisitions to prevent huge companies from buying potential competitors and it would force companies that control more fifty percent of a single market to prove that an acquisition would not reduce competition. Here's senator club shar. We all know that misinformation has been rampant on social media and it is greatly. Set us back. But there's another much more insidious problem and that is that any company that was starting to come and do cool things got bought and i think maybe you could look at this legislation as basically a reply to mark zuckerberg's email when he said about they're looking at what's happened instagram. These businesses are nascent but the networks established. The brands are already meaningful. And get this. And if they grow to a large scale they could be very disruptive to us. Google has ninety percent market share. Right now they are literally taking on a government of a major country in australia when the prime minister says hey we're gonna start making you guys pay for content and they say back. No you're not we're going to withdraw from your market and you'll have no search engine and a big part of this. It sounds like is funding these agencies right making sure that the ftc which is charged with a lot of this actually has some teeth exactly and of a numbers can't lie the ftc in nineteen eighty at one thousand seven hundred nineteen employees by twenty eighteen down to one thousand one hundred two. You cannot take on the biggest companies. The world has ever known trillion dollar companies with bandaids and duct tape. And that's why senator grassley has join me on a portion of this bill to up the fees on megamerger so we can put in over one hundred million dollars to each agency so they can actually do their job and this isn't just about tech. There's only to cat food. Companies that control most of the market. There's only two online travel agencies. You think you're getting all their choices. Go look at. Who owns them. And as john oliver closed in a segment on his. And if this all makes you wanna die good luck. Because the casket market is controlled by three companies which actually sadly no one purchase the other. It's down to

How did you end up being a lawyer from studying history and english extensive amounts of reading and writing. The really is i. You know when. I was In actually in high school had an opportunity to participate in a youth leadership program That included a track on the judicial system. And i just kinda got hooked on on everything that was involved in of course. Reading and writing is a big part to sorta leaned into those superpowers. I guess so. How did you pass from being a j. d. lead you to amazon and out small business owners. The phone question I do. I've today describe myself as a recovering lawyer. A my favorite time. Yes you know the thing that was fun for me about practicing law was you. You get to spend all day identifying issues in solving problems and so i really From day one enjoyed solving ambiguous problems. Where you had to figure out the root cause of whatever issue or opportunity was in front of you and then inventor way to the solution and so that took me from practicing law Up through a variety of roles on the business side where i've gotten to solve increasingly problems. focused on solving challenges For usually for others which leads to my my role today which is very good to spend all day everyday focused on helping solve issues challenges and make the world a better place for small businesses. I think a lot of people carry don't realize how many small businesses actually work through the amazon channel. Tell us about that So amazon in the us alone on amazon works with more than two million independent partners. They come in all shapes and sizes celena stores. They operate delivery service businesses. They use tools trim. Aws a build alexa skills. They published books with kindle direct publishing so amazon supporting small medium. Sized businesses is a fundamental part of our work there. It's a core part of what we do everyday. An extension of our customer centric culture. Our success depends on their success and our global head. Carrie i was gonna say in our in our store worldwide. We have over a million independent businesses selling in the account for over half of all products sold. And we've seen their sales continue to outpace our retail so we know that customers value them in this election they bring in an incredible way. The amazing statistic that over half of everything purchased on amazon is sold through independent third parties. Small medium sized businesses. That it's not really amazon. Really is the amazon marketplace right absolutely. Yeah the outlive sewing partners. The independent businesses bring those products role and bringing such a wonderful and diverse array of products across all categories. That customers enjoy now. Even i know most of us were surprised by covid. Nineteen who would know that once in every one hundred years right what happen last year but was my biggest surprise is that when ordered some from amazon. It couldn't get here in two days. I thought would never ever happen. Carry tell us about the challenges. They're really amazon. Face in the small business partners did during the height of the covid nineteen crisis absolutely right kobe. Nineteen created many challenges for small businesses. We you know despite it. We were encouraged to see that sense and through that time. Small companies have continued to grow with amazon. You know twenty twenty the number of us long medium sized businesses that surpassed one million dollars sales grew by more than twenty percents and more than thirty seven hundred surpassed him in sales for the first time. Which is just a really great business milestone for any prisoners owner. I'm those businesses have created an estimated one point one million jobs which is phenomenal. It's such an important part. Is you know what keeps our communities going and so we've seen as customers of increasingly shopping online on the past year. The businesses were using e commerce. House channel have continued to sustain grow. I'm in our commitment to supporting them. And adopting for the future has has never been more steadfast done a number of things both continuing work. We've been doing for years and new things. We did in twenty twenty to continue supporting them through that journey. And i think that's really the key role. The amazon plays a lot of companies have got into e commerce for the first time during covid nineteen and like all right. I'm gonna go set up a store. But they no incomes and i think that is really the key of getting involved in the amazon marketplace. Because you already have so many people looking for products right there absolutely One of my favorite stories. I think one of my favorite projects from twenty twenty was last year redesigned prime date support small businesses and we committed more than one hundred million dollars to help their growth over the shopping event through the holiday season and that included holding our biggest small business promotion. Yeah so during that promotion customers. Purchase dollars and products from participating. Small business selling on amazon. Ten dollars credit to spend on prime day. It's on a two week. Lead up to prime day. Small businesses included in that promotion generated more than nine hundred million dollars. In sales on prime day independent third party sellers had their two biggest as ever surpassing three and a half billion in sales which is nearly sixty percent year over year increase and even more growth than our retail business and then it also came with stories like the story of lia foods actually a seller based north aurora forty minutes outside of chicago and she makes african inspired spices but The fun part about her story. It demonstrates the power of selling on amazon and an event like prime day to find those new customers over to help those new customers find you. She shared that coming out of advent not only has she almost doubled her single day sales but her daily started trending upwards with all that new customer acquisition those stories. We really enjoy seeing so those who've never really men sold their price to amazon. What kind of rain moments are there. And what is it in a cost to market on amazon. Yes so our public schedule. So if you if any seller or someone considering becoming a feller looks online at those public public information fees range from eight to fifteen percent depending on product type and for business selling amazon. Really do that as a marketing cost because of the access to that three hundred million customers that it creates and then beyond the monthly in referral fees. everything's optional so sellers choose. What's right for their business. We offer as i mentioned a variety of services in programs than in its pick. What's right for you right so if you want to lean into advertising their options for you could choose what suits for your business if you want to move away from fulfilling your on products create more bandwidth for yourself to do other things there options to leverage by amazon into leverage the customer service support that comes without. So it's it's very much a choose your own adventure but each business owner can select the right fit for them and what fits their
An Apple Ad-pocalypse For Everyone?
"You know about those changes to ad tracking that apple is going to flip the switch on on ios. Soon you know how facebook has said this will hurt small businesses and also them quite directly. They've also admitted. Well as this ad pacalypse creeps ever closer. There is increasing chatter about how big this move might actually be for basically everyone let me hit some of the most recent takes for you i. What prompted me to lead with this. Today is that in their earnings last night. Snap had to warn that. The coming changes by apple to idea a could have a materially adverse effect on their business and it wasn't just snap either unity also came out and said idea changes will hit the pocketbooks of all mobile game developers quoting cnbc. Unity software said in its earnings report. That the changes will affect the way mobile game developers get and quote how they optimize lifetime. Customer value and quote although it's difficult to estimate our guidance assumes idea changes begin in the spring and will reduce revenue by thirty million dollars or three percent of revenue in two thousand twenty one. The company wrote in prepared remarks for its q. Four earnings report snap chief financial officer derek. Anderson said the apple changes would present a risk of interruption to demand after their implemented quote. It is not clear yet. What the longer term impact of those changes may be for the top line momentum of our business and this may not be clear until several months or more after the changes are implemented. He said quote so coincident with that. I know that this is long. Reads day but i encourage you to check out ben. Thompson's free article from strategically this week because it is the most sober and i opening look at this situation that i've seen anywhere thompson did a qna with mobile marketing analyst. Eric su firt and he had some interesting things to say about. Apple's true motivations and all of this and how these changes could ripple out to affect not only game developers but things like chiappa fi and the smaller businesses on that platform. I highly highly recommend. You read the whole thing. But i'm going to quote two parts for you first up. This is ben quote the thing that is always kind of weird to me about this. Is i think people underestimate and frankly i think apple underestimates the degree to which apple's growth in services revenue growth in. The app store is because of facebook and that facebook and apple have had this very symbiotic relationship. facebook has done. All of apple's dirty work and apple has harvested thirty percent on the back end just by virtue of owning the app store. The question i have is. Is it possible. That apple is shooting themselves in the foot here and their services revenue actually takes a meaningful hit because they've destroyed the engine driving it and they didn't even realize it because they actually didn't understand facebook's role in this and then this is eric's answer quote. I don't think so. I think apple very much recognizes the role that it plays in the app ecosystem which is the distribution engine for apps. And i think that's what apple doesn't like. I think apple sees that the app store has basically become irrelevant as a point of content discovery. It's basically this kind of frictional annoying moment between clicking an ad and installing an app almost all discovery happens via ads or word of mouth. And i think what apple is doing in this in recognizing the power that facebook has in terms of influencing which apps become big which apps are popular. How people are using their iphones. Essentially in recognizing that apple is trying to regain control of that because if apple cripples advertising which is doing mobile advertising this is all happening within the context of all this stuff. That's happening on the browser which we don't need to go down that rabbit hole but apple has been the instigator of all of that too if apple cripples mobile advertising than the app store becomes the primary discovery point for apps again and apple decides how people use our iphones apple decides which are the most popular. And by the way. That's a position that apple used to occupy twenty twelve twenty. Thirteen apple was kingmaker. If you've got featured your company valuation might increase by one hundred million dollars it was really important to make that pilgrimage to apple. Go to cupertino and beg for featuring please feature as please give us the headline featuring because that would make such a big difference to our company then in that way apple got to influence. What kind of apps made and how you made them. So my sense here is that apple wants to regain that control and quote and then from further down in the piece. This is ben again. The great thing from google's perspective is they get to copy everything. Apple does which completely benefits them because apple wants to kill cookies. Google's like that's fine. We have the browser. We have the app store and we're justified in doing blatantly anti-competitive things because we're just copying apple. The apple. google duopoly is really ruling. Everything and this is eric's response. Yeah google silence on this issue has been really intriguing. Because i think they've got to feel like a little bit stuck. It's like well okay. We're going to slow copy apple on any privacy initiative. It does because we don't want to allow apple to create a competitive advantage around being seen as the privacy centric mobile platform but at the same time they run an ad network so day can't come out and demonize targeted advertising. Because well that's how they make some substantial portion of their money. Ben interjects here. They're being sued for antitrust. And this is so blatantly. Anti-competitive and eric responds right exactly. They've got a fine line to walk. And i think they've you to a very shrewd approach. Which just like you said. Kind of copy. What apple is doing but doing it in a way that is not a full manifestation of that and quote again read. The whole thing cannot recommend it highly enough are we all of us in the tech ecosystem facing an ad pacalypse

John bogs, it's a red light. I've had players in the past say they don't want to go to certain states because they're going to get hammered by taxes. Obviously that affects the bottom line. There you go. So. I and you can't blame someone an entire year's. And worth of salary and not a small salary that remember will you and I talked two years back about you know, when Phil Mickelson was criticized Seyni might wanna move from California when they started increasing the taxes, and he got blasted by it, then you and I actually did the figures over a ten year period with what he makes. And we said it could be anywhere between he would lose between fifty and one hundred million dollars which at that time. Remember he was interested in buying part of ball team. And we said if if you're doing financial planning, and you wish to have that kind of money to participate in buying something big that's going to factor into it. Right. Fifty to one hundred million dollars. Even if you're making fifty to one hundred million dollars a year. You don't throw away fifty to one hundred million just because you're making it every year, if you know that you can say that over a period of ten years, you're going to do everything possible to do that.

"one hundred million dollars" Discussed on The Filmcast
"Because like for some reason Sony's giving us x million dollars to make this movie. Let's not question that generosity and just go all the way with it. Because we we might not ever make another one of these movies doing pretty well over one hundred million dollars domestic and I'm hoping it's good enough to to give us a sequel. We'll see, but I also love this movie Spiderman into spider verse it really shows the pair of animation by the way, like you're only limit with animation is your imagination like, that's it. That's pretty much it, and I'm sure budget and stuff too. But really, that's it. But how did it take so long for somebody to try something really fresh and new, you know, yes, you can do anything. But but the industry sort of falls into this groove of what everybody else does we do as well. And the fact that this movie broke the mold in such a bold way. And and like you say Dave really embraced comic book story. Telling comic book, visualization managed to translate that in a way that didn't feel goofy. That didn't feel like it took something away from it that actually felt additive. It's it's amazing. It's an amazing movie. Also have to say, it's a brave movie for breaking away from just being completely CG film. You know, and I I love the incredible. I level out of what Pixar is doing. I do feel like we're seeing just so many of those because it's pretty easy to produce. Once he creates a models. Yeah. A lot of work goes into it. But I am I am a traditional animation fan like in my in my bones. It's what I grew up watching. So a lot of this movie was, you know, hand sell painted as well combined with lot of digital tech. It's something I love so much. That's why I'm a big fan of enemy because really what what's tremendous. There is like the imagination of a lot of those craters of like me as Ocoee, and everyone where you know, the way you create something just by drawing, it you could tell entire story like that. That always fascinated me. This movie captures at Saint feel completely. I would also like just say quickly that there's a fantastic article. On slash from dot com. As we record this.

I mean, you know, and I've heard that they're they've been mixed reviews about wrinkle in time. But I thought it was phenomenal. I was okay. So I think we touched on that. But I had a bit of issue with the only because I did love wrinkle in time as a book. But I also realized that it is a very whimsical book. It is you know, it is it is about other dimensions and things like that. And it leaves a lot of room for interpretation and also for creativity in developing a film. And so it was already huge that black women was able to adapt it into a film. You know what I'm saying? And I thought they did a really good job of it doesn't follow the book. Exactly. But if I was the premise, and like how they put their little spin on it. And it was for children. It was not for you adults. That is. A lot millennials went into the theater with expectations.

Horn in the middle of a, hurricane I mean this is nothing I mean. This is really, I don't think it's any, big deal but. Apparently Trump was discussing. How to pair off and. The, amount. Of. Money and and for some reason or another he thought I can't find the, actual relative date they think this occurred but they said it was before the two. Thousand sixteen election so there's a few? Things I, want to know number one is why was leaked what's, the purpose of this is the purpose of this to make Trump nervous probably right. Right, to, put, that out there to. Put pressure on oh. Allen yeah to maybe. Make you, know what. I would just do any sort of pressure with Trump because he lets his mouth in his Twitter finger get ahead of. Him so, he might even just, say things that, hurt his. Case to, begin with just because he's trying to get in front of. What the, tape may have or what, he may have, sad everybody, should write, this down as I say this right now because this is. This is, what's going to. Happen you, know the whole, talk about the FIS warranty yesterday there's, a big story today that we had before anybody else did about the Janine Pirro and Whoopi breakdowns you see it, was everywhere Backstage Jeannine Peres. Said she was so upset she was spitting on me and I love that my kids used to say. That when I would scream My dad's dad you're spitting. On us anyway so but, the here's a tape.

For this he's, on tape talking to a, Russian oligarch like the guy the cat that brought the the the land from him right They, call them the fertilizer king he purchased a home from Donald Trump for one hundred million dollars. A year and a, half before he paid forty million well ninety five and. Forty five fifty million dollar profit for Trump, and then he toured down so if you. Have on, tape somewhere them discussing that that's money, laundering that's that's like. That's it right there so but you'd say to yourself at that was out there wouldn Muller, just come forward with it Or does, he lied somewhere, else well I mean.
