"No, you raise your hand if you have a question, please. Yeah. You guys were very odd and so I'm not talking about Facebook. But there was this like Facebook cryptocurrency thing they tried for a while, right? There you go. Exactly. It's Libra and now it's DM or something right, right, right. Yeah, you guys heard anything about that. I saw like an article like a month or so ago saying they were in trouble with the government. And I just never hear about it at all. Okay, so I feel like within the last two or three weeks, I listen to a podcast where I believe it was David Marcus, who is heading up that project. And David Marcus DNA in here is very important. So first, he was an PayPal. He went on to lead, I don't know if it was the first messenger, but he was head of messenger, worked a lot on bots, which is how I was introduced to him. And then he went over to the crypto world because payments is a huge driver of use for messenger products. And messenger is one of the key wedges against iMessage and apple's forays into social networking, namely via share play, which is in iOS 15. Anyways, that's a little bit besides the point. But it tells you where David Marcus is coming from when he's working on this stuff. And so what I understand in terms of their approach with DM at this point is that because of all the scrutiny. And because of all the haterade, and because of all the ways in which people are skeptical of anything that Facebook does or touches. And especially a Facebook is coming for the Central Bank. Of course, everyone is putting up the shields and blocking them from moving forward. So what I understand at least in terms of his telling of it is that he's doing everything by the book, he is working closely with regulators. He is trying to make the DM currency completely of high repute relative to all other crypto projects. And so one that maybe is why it's very quiet. So there's not a lot of extra scrutiny and they're not promoting this thing before it's built and they're not moving faster. They're not, that's what I was going to say. They're not doing their usual playbook. And they're showing a more maybe level headed approach. You know, there's a lot of people that come from Facebook and go work at coinbase or go work at stripe. So there's a lot of this genetic soup that's moving around the valley and these FinTech spaces. And so when you find an opportunity to build something that could be impactful, you go towards it. And I say that because you may see people who had previously worked to Facebook to show up in stripe or people who are to coinbase, show up at Facebook and work on this thing. So there's a lot of that talent that moves around with a lot of similar ideas. If those ideas get stuck in one place, those folks who worked in it will move to another to try to keep it going. So I wouldn't be surprised if we see a lot more of DMs show up in subtle context, whether it is messenger or whether it's WhatsApp. As a way of sending remittances or getting more users in unbanked places to join Facebook in a more subtle context. Similar to a PayPal or a Venmo or cash app. Yeah, what I had heard and this might be complete hearsay is that it was very much a they sort of announced this thing like they usually do. They had the playbook that they usually have. And they hit a brick wall that they had never encountered before, which was the government governments around the world. No, governments around the world. Were like, hell to the no. And to the point where it's like, this could be so this could Pis off governments around the world so much that this could be a step on their other businesses because to me that if you are a regulator or if you're in another government, someplace else. And you don't know a lot about the tech companies in Silicon Valley. But you've heard of Facebook and you know Facebook has four or 5 billion users and most of those people are in your country. Suddenly the idea of Facebook touching each of those users with money or currency suddenly is getting in between a relationship that used to be owned entirely by the government. And so users. 100%. And I think I even made that point when this first all surface. So anyway, what I've heard anecdotally is that that's why it's gone silent is that they realized a, our normal playbook is not gonna work. And then B one of the things is is that they were essentially as I understood it. Proposing originally a stable coin like thing that would basically use serp again the role of sovereign governments to create sovereign monetary systems and things like that. It was almost like it was almost too nakedly a power grab like. And so in a way, that wasn't really what they wanted. No. And so they can still achieve their ends by scaling it back and having it be like maybe a PayPal as you would understand it from the early 2000s, but with more social juice and things like that. And that can still achieve. Whether you're doing messaging and you're sending text or you're doing messaging and you're sending currency, the mechanisms are actually nearly identical. So once you have those rails and you have people communicating, the logical sort of next step is to bring money into it. And as I understand it, and this may or may not be the truthful reason or motivation for this is that the costs for processing those exchanges of currency border was so high that by the time the currency was exchanged, there was almost nothing left for the people that were sending, let's say, three or $4, because of the high fees that were incurred through those transactions. Facebook's like, look, we can do this basically for free. If we have our own currency in this realm, and that's my understanding of why they went in that direction because of the adoption that they had for messenger and messenger payments. Matt Wilde,.

"Well, ray, I returned the favor by never knowing your name. It's so good. It's all good. Yeah, that might have been the one that inspired me to create a spreadsheet of one of the big crash came of all the people who were losing their jobs. I started this little spreadsheet and I had like hundreds and hundreds of contributors of people who were losing jobs and people are hiring jobs and lasted for a couple of months. It was a sad time. By the way, I'm remembering it wrong because the date on this article is November 28th, 2006. Anyway. So right as Chris said origin stories. Another thing talk about getting wrong. Today on the show, I mentioned that G four is back. Yeah. And I kept referring to it as the show where you got your love of tech or whatever. Because I always remembering when it was tech TV when Leo port was on it. And I knew that it became G four, but I didn't realize that it became mostly a gaming site. Or gaming gaming channel, I suppose. So just in case anyone was wondering why I kept referring to tech site even though everything about it is gaming, there was a time just not the time to ask people might remember. Right. It was just a rename and rebranding and became G four. And then went away 8 years ago because it became what was that what did I say it was some sort of men's fashion channel or something? Esquire or something like that, yeah, yeah. Pivot left. All right, so my 2nd May a couple might be lead into what one thing interesting to talk about is I did the story about how stripe is hiring a team. A crypto team. And a very small one, but right, but also it occurred to me as I was writing that up that I like to pride myself on connecting the dots. And I realized stripe we know as we've said on the World Cup of entrepreneurs thing, they're trying to own money. And how did it never dawn on me that they have never been a player in crypto? Like, as soon as I wrote that up, I was like, oh my God, in all these ways that stripe is maybe the biggest unicorn in the land. And it does payments and all this stuff. But what is crypto, but in theory, payments and money and things like that. And so it just kind of blew my mind that it had never occurred to me before that, oh my God, yeah. Every time we talk about crypto and things, stripe is kind of not a player in that space until now, I guess. I mean, that's kind of true about Visa and Mastercard, although he's of course bought their first NFT. But those guys, it just seemed like they were not going to enter into the space for some reason. And I wonder if we're not exactly I work for a FinTech now. But in terms of understanding the FinTech space, whether stripe couldn't get close to that stuff because of the regulations because of securities because of all the things that are just ambiguous or arbitrary or not figured out right now. And given all the license, go into that stripe just was like, we're not going to deal with that right now. It's like if they're killing it in their lane right now. Why take on that risk? Right. Exactly. If suddenly they get audited, you know, because they are touching crypto, then that's not good for their business. That's a good excellent point. Which then, if now we've spun this thing around 360 degrees, then is it interesting that now they're going to dip their toe in the water? I wonder. What they're seeing. My guess. And I have no insider information. Just reading the tea leaves is that there is a sufficient momentum of their international customers who are probably asking for processing of crypto and crypto payments. Whether it's what's going on in El Salvador or elsewhere. It just feels like money in the U.S. is just different than everywhere else because we're very well banked. We have good credit card systems, et cetera. And it just isn't the case universally globally. So if stripe has that international presence, then in footprint, they're going to want to do what their customers are asking them to do. And I got to imagine it got to a fever pitch where it's like, okay, we have to have a crypto solution or some answer, because this is clearly happening faster than we're able to say, no, no, sorry, we'll deal with that later. I think I've made that point on the show before. The last 18 months, one of the things that has finally gotten traction for crypto is that every bank their clients are asking for it. So they cut Venmo, PayPal. All these digital online currencies are all moving the direction and crypto is just like another offering. So it's sort of just, I think makes sense that if all of those payment providers are coming online and offering it that eventually merchants are going to be like, hey, this is what my customers have. They're selling these NFTs for well. I'm not even saying I'm not even saying that. I'm saying that if you're a fidelity or a Bank of America or a Visa or whoever, everybody, even the startups, you know, everybody wants to be that super app that you do all of your financial stuff in. So I think people woke up over the last year, and we're like, so wait, we're trying to have you do everything inside your account with us, except we're going to still allow you to go over there and do your crypto with that coinbase, right? And so that's sort of an untenable position going forward just from the simple fact that if people are living inside some other financial app, then you're kind of losing your base game if you're a banker. But it could be, I don't know. Some of stripe stuff is just so rudimentary. So basically, for example, there are iOS app. It sucks. It's really bad. And I think it's because they expect other third parties to really build the experience on top of it. They really want to be like the rails. They don't want to build the trains. And so in this case, they just need to have the underpinnings of how to support crypto and their customers will take care of the details and the implementation. So that's again, I'm thinking about this from a platform design perspective, as opposed to all the consumer stuff into some stripe experience. Right. Well, because stripe as far as I can tell has no aspirations to be a consumer brand. They kind of always want to literally want to be the magnet stream on the Internet for all payments..

"Important The democratization of financing We invest in the future of work which our company is creating better outcomes for workers and employees alike We invest in the future of work which are companies creating better outcomes for workers and employers alike We invest in purpose as it pertains to transportation So not immediately intuitive but companies creating transparency and efficiency around global supply chain and mobility Can you talk about why we picked that category in a bit And sustainability So tech enabled sustainable solutions This is our company's optimizing for sustainability from process to product With these 5 verticals combined we have a sub species which is that diverse founders and diverse employee bases and diverse cap tables is not charity It's simply good for business And so in addition to being hyper specific about the impact in which we invest we also make it a priority and a mandate in our firm to invest in the way the world truly looks And when we say that on our website we link to census data And so we invest in men and women equally We invest in diverse founders almost all of the time And we track this with data and precision to make sure that our investments reflect not just one zip code in California but rather America larger And you have described this as non obvious founders Tell us a little bit about that phrase Well not obvious is attorney here a lot when you go out to Silicon Valley And I don't know I think it was coined by a well-known early PayPal employee turned billionaire turned investor who actually has a conference centered around non obvious idea And I love the phrase I love thinking about investment species that are contrary because when you have a contrary point of view contrarian point of view you often have outlier results because if you're right you're taking the risk in your capturing the reward When you're investing in non obvious founders it should be that exact same outcome And so it always sort of befuddles me as a person with a hard to pronounce name in Silicon Valley Why it was that we're an industry that private itself on investing in innovation and groundbreaking ideas And the next frontier of X Y and Z and yet all of those founders in which we were investing collectively tended to kind of look the same They were coming from the same schools in the same types of families And so to me there was nothing innovative at all about backing that Wharton GSB HBS guy who was second or third generation finance And what really excites me about venture is capturing a moment in time that's young but also the energy is palpable around not only the idea in which the founder is building but the categories of which they're tackling and that sounds big I'll be a little bit more specific And so a we try to see things before they're even coming around the bend For instance we were early investors in a company called city block health Which is offering best in class healthcare specifically for low income Americans So they focus on the most vulnerable populations which are underserved with healthcare and they're all fine them Best in class healthcare access affordable pricing because it's predominantly covered through payer relationships And this company is so powerful to us for three reasons Number one because it's not simply offering healthcare to the elite It's democratizing access to care which I think is absolutely necessary and Paramount for success of any kind Second of all this is one of only two companies in the world this next fact is pretty sobering To be helmed in part by a black female founder after toian and Jay is and she gave me the statistics and repeating something that she first told me One of only two black women in the world to be at the helm of a unicorn the other woman currently is Julia Collins is doing pizza When you talk about non obvious founders and spaces like this you're looking at areas where the market has been very inefficient with how it allocates capital that these areas are just overlooked and ignored hey if you want to go into Silicon Valley and compete with everybody else and pay up for what looks like the same old startup maybe it'll be successful maybe it won't That's hyper competitive and hyper efficient These are areas that are just overlooked and there is this is more than just do gooder Y for lack of a better word There are genuine economic opportunities here with lots of potential upside Absolutely So my business partner and I she and I found each other 20 years ago with undergrads at Georgetown But we went into business after she was successful in being one of the only women in the world to take a shipping business public with her family And we got together and we said we have really unique access She and I and the first SPV that we collaborated on back in 2016 was for a young business at the time started by two women that will focus on medical apparel predominantly for nurses Now it's nurses and doctors And they were offering a solution to make medical apparel subscribe more comfortable and more fashionable for nurses I happen to have nurses and doctors.

"paypal" Discussed on The Content Strategy Podcast
"Comes in and they lay out exactly what needs to happen requirements etc and then the experience begins to kind of be designed around that. Are there projects that are really led and driven by content strategy or are there other specific requirements that you are kind of serving and and fulfilling along the way as well it really depends on the project and one thing that i've been advocating for and we've started to see. Some success is for her to come in not with necessarily a list of requirements but with a list of desired outcomes or even a potential problem statement and then we'll use that information to craft a content strategy for instance. We're working right now. On a reboot to the on boarding experience for merchants who sign up for a pay pal account specifically small and medium size businesses and product came to us and said you know. Look we know right now that there's a big drop off in when merchants start the sign up process and how many actually completed and we have looked at some data and we have a hypothesis that the drop off is happening because of these reasons in the drop off happening at these specific points in the flow and we said great. That's really good information to have and we looked at the existing flow. We mapped where the drop-offs were happening. And we analyze the content and we came up with some of our hypotheses of our own and we determined that the content wasn't really clear the process to sign up was fairly convoluted and we asked merchants for a lot of personal information about themselves and about their business all at once and it felt like a burden so working very closely with product. We decided to try a whole new approach. Now what will be launched in very soon is a way for merchants to sign up for paypal account which just their first name last name and most word an email address and from there they'll be able to get into the experience and look around more and get a sense of how pal works previously..

"paypal" Discussed on KTAR 92.3FM
"PayPal. I am very slender. Look, you know, we reached extremes of it in the early 2000. I think into the kind of later to thousands, but since then we've kind of seen This swaying if you will, this this kind of ebbing and flowing of Jean with and now it does seem like we're entering a period probably at the early years of it of wider jeans. And of course, you know, in particular its young people that are gravitating toward this. You know, Several sources in this story pointed out to me if you're young, if you're 20, If you're in your teens, you're probably You've probably really on Lee worn skinny jeans, your entire conscious consumer life. So from the point of you purchasing things, they were probably skinny jeans. They're probably at least a slimmer kind of more tailored looking jeans. And naturally, you know, people want to look for something different eventually, and they're finding those wider genes. They might be something that is Regrettable or something. That is a bad memory to someone who is 30 40, you know, even beyond that, But, you know, T, that younger client that younger customer they're looking at. Why your jeans or something that feels very novel it for us right now. Jacob, who was making the wider genes. How much do they cost in general? And are they definitely both a man and woman thing right now? Well, there it is. Certainly kind of across genders We're seeing across genders. But what I would say is, interestingly you know again, because Jeez, are this universal item in someone's causes not, you know, necessarily a high end suit. It's not a high end pair of dress shoes, jeans or something that you know, by and large is a broad category. Most people do own. So what? What is interesting here is that you know you have Companies like Wrangler, creating a wider fitting jeans for as little as $20. You have Levi's, you know, has been, and it remains the big player within the denim space. You know, they're really expanding. No pun intended there wider Gene array, and they're investing a little bit more into that. And that is a mass market. Gene. That is $90. You know, they have a gene that's totally called Stay loose scene. Uh, it has a believe a rounded eight inch him with which is pretty wide. I mean, that's that's that's definitely not the quote unquote Norm. From what we have seen in recent years and Levi's, You know, in speaking with them, they did say, You know, this is something they're going to continue to invest in and continue to pursue, as kind of consumer preference on dictates it, But I would also say, you know, this is definitely something that is a runway fashion threat. You know the runway that you know, Runway fashion is drama led, You know, people like to go. Designers like to send out things that are quite eye catching. And so we have seen, you know incredibly why jeans out there? You know things that stretch 10 12 inches wide. Ah, calling even pointed out to me as I was with another story. There was a You know, Fashion brand Viqueira that shows during New York Fashion Week and the genes that they were showing. I mean, they were these massive tube cut jeans and that it is interesting in that sense that we are seeing this is kind of a universal translator speaks hitting that kind of That's market cold that mass market mall and it's also hitting, you know, designer boutiques.

This is younger artists and typically musicians. You know you're looking at Using like Billy Islands, and you're looking at musicians like that bunny and you're looking at kind of actors that are on, you know the bleeding edge, so to speak after that might be a little bit more progressive in their style. That's Wall Street Journal Men's fashion reporter Jacob Gallagher with this morning's Jennifer Cash Enka 30 Minutes after the hour on this morning. America's first news.

PayPal Opens Crypto Payments for Millions of Merchants
"What's going on guys. It is tuesday march thirtieth and today we are talking about pay pal opening crypto payments for millions of merchants first up however. Let's do the brief i. On the brief today micro. Bitcoin futures are coming to the the. Cms has been in. The bitcoin futures game a long time in fact their launch of the bitcoin futures product almost perfectly timed the market top in two thousand seventeen however of course this product is relatively limited now to the people who can play with whole bitcoins at a time. This has gotten trickier as the price of. Bitcoin is nearly sixty thousand again today. This is announcing new contracts. Launching may third that are cash settled and sized at one tenth of one bitcoin. So why does this matter to me. Part of what makes bitcoin. Great is the democratization of participation that it enables buying. Bitcoin at spot is permission. Lists and what's more you can trade institutions. She's not in full bitcoin. This does remain one of the biggest misconceptions in one of the biggest reasons. New people to crypto. Find themselves turning away from. Bitcoin is not realizing that you can buy less than one. Full bitcoin that you can buy fractions of bitcoins. Regardless the 'financialisation of bitcoin could threaten democratization in many ways by only allowing much bigger players to play the game futures contracts that are smaller sized could one allow for a different category of investor to participate in bitcoin derivatives to to allow more diverse types of bats within that space and three reinforced. This notion so important. As i just mentioned that you don't have to buy a whole bitcoin. Now you also don't have to bet on the future of bitcoin with whole bitcoins

Does Exercise Really Affect Metabolism?
"Often people say in the past. It's been a bit of a common belief that if you exercise you'll speed up your metabolism. That one hundred percent depends on what type of exercise and what. Your metabolism is adapted to do in the first place. So fuel preferences has your body got before you exercised what fuel preference have you instigated during exercise which is based on the top of exercise. And then what you do after the exercise as well so There's so many layers but let's let's just digging a little bit where. The exercise helps or hinders white loss for example metabolism. If we're talking about calories in calories out and simply if i ate less i will lose white. And if i exercise than exercises a great way to lose weight and eight less move more theory has been around a really really long gone and it doesn't work for a lot of paypal and in the general population. It's not working at all that general theory or that general recommendation in government guidelines. So let's think about what happens to a seventy kilogram famous approximately in thirty minutes of exercise. Approximately one hundred calories of bent so if they just going for a gentle walk in a chat thirty minutes. Moderate exercise approximately two hundred calories a bun and thirty minutes. Vigorous exercise approximately three to three fifty calories. Abun now if we look at the food intake one apple one hundred calories. One egg seventy five calories grams of chicken breasts. One hundred and seventy calories one cup of milk so if you got a lot i after you walk one hundred and fifty calories so let's say it was two weeks then pretty much all of these as around one hundred one. Hundred and fifty calories is an apple. Two eggs hundred grams of chicken breast or a cup of milk. He's all going to pretty much main. That you've got a walked for an hour thirty minutes to forty five minutes of walking just to have that one little snack so if you walk and then you did snack then you balance that but this is not about calories. I want to say everything that just said. He's completely relevant and wrong. Because this is not about calories in calories out that was an example of why the eight less move more does not work well in terms of trying to burn the fact that you have stored on your

Elon Musk - The Man Behind Tesla and SpaceX
"Well who's elon. Musk well if you don't know you're gonna find out right now. There is so much news internet entertainment on ilan mosque. And i want to tell you that this is only the basics of aeon. Musk who he is. There is plenty to find out about him. I will leave some of the links and the show notes. So don't forget to look but who is elon. Musk and how does he lawns story began. Well he is a visionary entrepreneur and the co founder of paypal and tesla motors as well as the founder of the new space x program which is very popular to day his astounding success has given rise to comparisons to the uniqueness of howard hughes and the tenacity of a henry ford but he did have an often difficult childhood like most of us kids his own age made fun of him from his own descriptions the years were lonely and brutal alon is quoted as saying they got my best friend to lure me out of hiding so they could beat me up and that hurt. That's when i realized that they were going to go after me non stop. That's what made growing up difficult for a number of years. There was no respite. You get chased around by gangs. These gangs tried to beat the insert. Swearword here out of me. And then i'd come home and it would just be awful there as well but not all was wasted. This difficulty cultivated itself into a relentless work ethic a never ending tenacious vision of the future. You see enron was born and raised in south africa and he spent some time in canada before finally moving to the united states thin and the united states. He was educated at the university of pennsylvania. A very good school majoring in physics. That's when ilan started to excel and experiment to soon. Become a serial tech entrepreneur with early successes like zip to an x dot com. He took on two majors at the university of pennsylvania but his time there wasn't all work with a fellow student. He bought a tin bedroom fraternity house which they used as an ad hoc nightclub will. Musk graduated with a bachelor of science and physics at all as a bachelor of arts in economics from the wharton school for ilan. Physics made the deepest impression. He is again quoted as saying and somewhat giving directions to boiling things down to their fundamental truths and reason up from their. Musk was twenty four years old when he moved to california to pursue at phd in applied physics at stanford university with the internet. Exploding in silicon valley booming. Musk had entrepreneurial visions on his mind and dropped out of the physics program just after two days but in two thousand and four. Musk joined to engineers to help. Run tesla motors. You've all heard of tesla motors right. Well this is where. Musk was integral and designing the first electric car. There's no doubt the electric car is the car of the future. But his first car the he designed was the tesla roadster as we are all aware of the tesla has become one of the world's most popular and coveted car brands and is still growing in popularity in the united states and in many different countries tesla and the electric car are taking over but we must never forget about musk's early interest in reading philosophy science fiction and fantasy novels and how that played a big role. I mean a huge role in the inventor that he is today. It is reflected in his sense of idealism and concern with human progress. He aims to work in the areas he has identified as crucial to our future specifically the internet. The transition to renewable energy sources and space colonization and. Ilan has been all over the media. Making three podcast episodes on the joe rogan experience while the first one in which he smoked. Marijuana was pretty funny but in a maximum article. I found this elon. Musk's third appearance on the joe rogan. Experience podcast the genius. Tesla and spacex. Ceo did reveal intriguing plans for a floating tesla. Musk revealed that the long awaited second generation tesla roadster could have a space x package that would allow it to hover at a limited altitude above the ground. Something that we have never seen before with all these new inventions floating around. Is it any wonder why everyone is watching. And curious about ilan's next big thing. Well at tesla fans are awaiting the cyber truck which will make an appearance at the end of twenty twenty one and the exciting numbers are in for ilan's wealth elon. Musk started twenty twenty with a worth of about twenty seven billion dollars and was barely in the top fifty richest people then in july of twenty twenty. Musk past warren buffett. The great billionaire to become the seventh richest person in november. Musk raced past bill gates to become the second richest person. Musk has gained more wealth over the past twelve months then gates his entire net worth of one hundred and thirty two billion dollars and according to cnbc elon. Musk just became the richest person in the world. With a net worth of more than one hundred and eighty five billion dollars alone recently had a new marker for his wealth and that is so cool because of all his inventions and his time spent caring and wanting the united states and the world to move ahead has made a name for himself. There is no doubt an increase in tesla's share price pushed. Musk past jeff bezos of amazon. Who had been the richest person since two thousand seventeen. You see musk's wealth surge over. The past year marks the fastest rise to the top of the rich list and history but why because he is investing in the future. It marks a dramatic financial turnaround for the famed entrepreneur. Because he cares about what happens in our future so with all his wealth experimentation and knowledge elon. Musk is our future and for those. That are young enough to dream about being an elon. Musk it must start with your curiosity with reading and learning more and more about new and different things and that i want for you and your children now and in the future.
The Changing Economics of Ad Fraud
"The same way that goldman is making a little bit of a new bet and clear. Sky and nitrogen are very security focused. There's a little bit of a new focus for white ops. As well brian i mean you're you're moving beyond just bought fraud in advertising and I interested to learn. I didn't realize this was such a big thing. But i guess it's just because it's not something i focus on that fraud in music streaming for example is a massively growing problem because if you can boost the number of listen than if that's really helpful For for whatever reason you can explain it and so a little bit about that sort of thing and some of the other new areas of focus for you guys beyond advertising. Sure we'll to to tell you about that The expansion that's happening now Obviously take you back to twenty twelve through twenty fourteen win when you and i first met the in the summer of two thousand twelve attracted us to botnets in net. Detection was the officer vacation. That were were the kind of force multiplier behind a variety of different kinds of cybercrimes Secretary that win done in onesies and twosies just be a nuisance become a multimillion dollar cybercrimes when you can scale them up by using home in japan and in the early days in fact if you look at our earliest patents. You'll you'll see that. There is no reference to advertising Were were really thinking about financial services actually It was it was in the pursuit of the investigation into that theory that that bought nets were a critical layer in other ways. Different crimes that we discovered the surprising scope of ad fraud. And that got us curious. We we were wondering how big of a problem it really was in. And so the genesis of that great study with the and Was was not just to raise awareness of the problem marketers. It was actually to just do the the best scientific study we could to try to quantify. Just how big of a problem. This was to see if it was something that we white up your take on 'cause the the founding ninetieth white ops is steph fight cybercrime economically. We wanna take on those crimes of scale and making them substantially less profitable so we should start with the ones that are the most profitable and i. I don't think anyone knew exactly. How big of a problem at really was in in specifically the the botnets scaling fraud. So in we didn't either we really just trying to find out in then that turned out to be a big big problem so it therefore deserved our initial focus fast forward to today I think is that the the whole industry has made remarkable progress The awareness of the problem led to collective action That collective action has led to a number of victories including a remarkable number of of industry collaborations to not just sort of fight off ad fraud but actually dismantle ad fraud operations in so while that fight is not complete I think that we you've really turned the tide in important ways and and so therefore now is the time to expand our reach so we can do the same sort of thing for other categories of victims. How has the tide turned. What are some examples. I guess beyond the greater awareness and collaboration among advertisers and publishers and a new trade organizations companies like yourself. Because collaboration is is great is a great thing but then you always have to think of a parallel. I actually think of fraudsters collaborating. I don't know maybe they have differences. They build their own technology so it almost feels like there are always equal and opposite reactions to action and so of course that's the classic arms race kind of You know reference that everybody makes but where where some specific areas of progress. I'm glad you asked Win win when we started and and and even for the early years afterwards it was relatively easy to purchase traffic for your website. You can just by visitors as visitors. Were on tap. There were wide variety of vendors of traffic The that you could pay via credit card or paypal And just turn on the traffic spigot and with this meant is that websites large and small that wanted increase visitors in order to up just over at more bidding opportunities or maybe to fill special kinds of orders. could could always turn to these traffic sources to fill any kind of order on demand That problem was pervasive and it was widely predicted. When we started that we would not be able to solve that problem that we'd have no impact on it because of a perverse incentives across the the supply chain now. Those vendors are gone It it used to be as easy as doing a google search to find traffic vendors That they weren't even on the dark web. There were many that were simply on the open. Web And would accept payments credit card The the trade and traffic has not been eliminated but it is substantially harder to to buy traffic It's substantially more expensive to to buy realistic looking fake traffic. That'll actually get the by your paid And what that means. Is that ad fraud to those players. Those traffic arbitrageurs ubstantially less attractive crime. It's it's harder to do and and you make less money doing it. So fewer people are doing it the win when you hear talk when you hear kind of cynical talk about arms racists. That'll never and about games of lacombe. Oh that will never end I think those simplistic metaphors miss an important winning condition. Which is maybe. We can't make this kind of fraud. Technically impossible but if we substantially reduced the incentives just make it less profitable. Fewer people will want to play the game And that's been happening. Unfortunately as saying a. The job's not done because while we've we've driven a lot of that fake traffic and traffic arbitrage out of markets and environments. That were absolutely right with broad lake. digital video You certain fraud operations. And even new ones have had just sprung up in In new parts of the digital ecosystem. So so i don't mean to paint an overly rosy picture but but there's simply no question that on an economic basis we've substantially improved the landscape over the past several years.
PayPal Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2020 Results
"Pay pal closed out the best year. In the company's history fourth quarter profit and revenue came in higher than expected their guidance for twenty twenty one with strong shares of pay pal up around five percent and hitting a new high. Yeah pretty much Sort of twenty percent ish growth Year ear And really i think that more than anything what is part of Today's move is is a reiteration that this is sort of very much the middle of the game this is not particularly a pandemic related growth. It's it's sort of the growth that you expect here to the growth that the guidance is is continuing to provide. they've gotten investor day. I think next week and You know paypal and ebay two tastes. That weren't so great together but They've been pretty good Separated they had been good separate. We'll get to ebay and a second But you know this. This is interesting because You know one of the things that has come up over. The past few weeks on this show has ban guidance the degree to which some companies are comfortable sharing it for twenty twenty one the degree to which others are saying no. We're not doing gyns right now. A part of what pay pal shared was for the first time in a few years. They're going to have an investor day a week from today so february. Eleventh i believe is pay pals investor day and one of the things they're expected to share is their outlook for the next three to five years so I for anyone who looks at paypal and wonders about the valuation. I think the the counter to that is the confidence that management has to give guidance. Not just for this year but you know a week from now. They're going to be sharing it out to two thousand twenty six. Yeah and that is something to take notice of because it is a space that is while certainly far more mature than it would have been five years ago still So much going on you know in in the places where it where pales operating That i'm impressed that they can go out on a limb that far into the future You know with the percentage of the business that is coming from the new initiatives crypto and qr code reads It's it's really A lot of pieces that have a lot. That's going to happen in the next five years. So i think it's going to be a fascinating investor day and certainly One that is going to grab a lot of attention because of what the stock has done.

Can I profit from injury recovery videos on TikTok?
"Hi chris this is derek. And i'm a fitness. Coach has been trying different ideas during the pandemic since my client work is much more limited my latest project to make short instructional videos on injury recovery oppose them on tiktok and instagram and try to bring views to my site. I also like to ask for donations through pay pal the way some influences do wanna muddle the message any tips. Thanks for your help. Hey what's up. Thank you so much really. Admire the vision here. It's also been interesting admirable just to see how many people who are in the fitness role. How they have adjusted in in the pandemic age. I saw all kinds of people trying different stuff last year. And some things work out and some things. Don't just like a lot of stuff in life but as it goes for this idea actually made some detailed notes for myself here because i thought it was interesting. I also think you know just to be transparent as always like. It's no small challenge to do this. Well so i wrote in the description for this episode you know can a fitness coach us tiktok to create instructional videos. Will of course like almost certainly can he make money from such a thing. Maybe that's the key point. I would say if if if you are going to make money with it like. Here's what needs to happen like for this to actually take off whether it is talk. Instagram or something else number one. You know amazing content which is easier said than done of course the quality bar is really high these days which creates a better user experience. It encourages all of us to work harder. But i think especially with tiktok videos because such a younger generations so many millions of users around the world people are growing up doing this natively. You have to have something. That's really really good. Second you need amazing morality or you need something that really spreads right because lots of good content doesn't spread. You need something that is popular right. You need something that is popular that comment worthy that people want to to tell their friends about and of course lots of folks on tiktok to you that really well but it's not something you can just snap your fingers in half so amazing content amazing morality or at least let's say really good variety and then number three and actual monetization plan that connects the free videos. The ones that spread violate with a relevant way to get paid. Any one of these. Three things is hard to do well. But you'll need to do all three okay. And that said it's not impossible like obviously some people are doing this and i find it inspiring myself but even more valuable than whatever they're paid whether it's through those paypal donations or something else is those huge numbers of followers. Some of these people are able to reach it really is just tremendous. It's a whole new world. i would say also a final comment. They're like try to do anything you can to get those followers to connect with you on multiple platforms right so to use the eggs baskets analogy. You wouldn't want all your eggs in the tiktok basket or the instagram basquiat or any other technology platform. And then just briefly on that last point about the actual monetization plan that connects the free videos. That spread byerly. All i mean there is like there has to be some logical extension whether it is like. Hey all this content is free. Click here to donate. That's probably the most basic and easy and obvious when there could be something else as well but you can't approach new technology and new communication networks with old strategies and always expect the same results and the people are successful are often the ones who are able to adapt. So i wish you well derek anybody else out there. Well he's trying this. Let me know how it goes. I would love to get some more lessons to share with the rest of our community.

And what this allows is any anybody really to come in and have a turnkey solution to be able to offer crypto to their customers and so very specifically in the case of a pay pal were in the background. <hes> has the custodian and liquidity provider for them to be able to offer a trip to their us customers and the crypto services. Our bitcoin theory m bitcoin cash and liking and <hes>. We actually offer a very similar service for revolut others and so this is something that we're increasingly seeing. Many different firm talked to take up <hes>. Which is how can we offer crypto to our customers. We do it in a trustworthy away at queen do it very quickly and then we can have a deep relationship with our customers. We can acquire new customers and really we can be part of this ecosystem which i think is very exciting and very dynamic which <hes> historically <hes>. Been a kind of just an early adopter ecosystem. And i think is it's really going through a fait shift now and i think that's what we're doing with pay pal and what we're going to do more broadly for the whole ecosystem and so how does a small company like says convince a more than two hundred billion dollar company like pay pal to partner with it. Yes well that is a great question because we spent probably the last seven or eight years position ourselves exactly for this type of partnership and so we have a really positioned ourselves as financial market infrastructure. And so that means <hes>. Really in more common terms a regulated platform and regulated platform is something that maybe isn't as needed in the early stages of a industries development. Because you tend to have a full stack solutions that are offered on the other hand as you become more mature as as an industry you need <hes> platforms where people don't have to build everything themselves where they can come in and they can leverage other people's know-how and technology and that's what we've done and so ultimately as <hes> <hes> a regulated platform. We've built a regulatory stack and that includes being the first company to be approved as a trust company in the state of new york to operating crypto blockchain. That was in may of two thousand fifteen cerna working on that in twenty twelve some some time ago <hes>. Really very early days <hes>. There wasn't even a theory at the time we started working on the trust company. And the reason we did that is because we believe that <hes>. Not just crypto but crypto on blockchain would be able to transform financial services in that you would need an infrastructure layer and so he built the trust company and the first one. We predated the bit license. That's how long ago this was and then we went and got a number of other firsts. So he built. Give an example. We have access to the federal reserve national settlement system or a full member of swift. We have a no action letter from the sec. So we have all these things and we have plus more and more on first and all of these things and <hes>. Doing that really set us up because we were asking for permission now for forgiveness and also because we set ourselves up as infrastructure. We're not trying to acquire twenty or thirty or fifty million retail customers. We're not even really trying to acquire an institutional customers. Our goal is to be a beauty. Your beauty to see company and so that's exactly what firms need who want to be able to come in have infrastructure provider to the relying on that they can trust but also one. That's not going to compete with them. I remember interviewing you in two thousand fifteen about that new york state trust charter and the time understanding it with significant in some respect but also not understanding why it would be useful so you briefly mention. The pax crypto brokerage. Which is that service that you charge you. Can you just describe how it works on the back end. Yeah definitely and i do remember that fifteen conversation it you know. It's it's amazing that it's already been five years. It feels like it was yesterday five and a half years in some ways. We're just ahead of our time a little bit. And but we really believes that. <hes> crypto blockchain. And we still believe are going to change the financial system that they're going to re platform the financial system. And that doesn't mean you don't need regulation and that's what that's always been these. You need to be regulated in order to be able to create a trustworthy ecosystem but at the same time. There's a moment in time when that becomes really relevant. And i think that's when there's just face shift from dr to mainstream which i think is exactly what we're undergoing right now. So it's it's just an exciting moment <hes> for us <hes>. To be a part of that. Because ultimately i think that's what got us all excited about crypto and blockchain. Wow you could actually change everything and <hes>. You it wasn't meant to just be a small community. Want to be some really big. And i think that's the moment we have right now. So that's something we're proud to be a part of and so for the brokerage how it works on the back end. Yes so the way. We have the triple brokerage work is. It's api based so anyone can come in. And they can plug their systems into ours. We offer custodial services we offer liquidity services. They can buy and sell their crypto on behalf of their customers our customers can directly. And you can integrate with us in actually a couple of different ways and we allow you to basically choose your own adventure with the api's and we did this deliberately. So we have some customers where they might not have licenses to be able to operate in the us they can have their customers actually be housed sit with impacts us and it'd be what we call third party integration and so we have customers they sit inside of us now the <hes>. The partner their customers don't know that they're actually sitting inside paxos. Unless you read the fine print you would know if you'd looked but they're able to keep that relationship and so we're providing them with a regulatory umbrella as well as the custodial and liquidity benefits and then you have other customers where <hes>. They're highly regulated example. Be paid bail but <hes>. They are actually housing. There conditional bet license inside paxos and so that was part of the press release and so we're really proud. That was the first conditional bet license that was created is what you need to be able to operate in the state of new york <hes>. If you're not a bank and so they <hes>. Were able to a seat receive a conditional license and we provided the regulatory umbrella for that to be able to be housed and again we're providing custodial in liquidity services to them now. Of course you can have a bank. That would come in. And they wouldn't necessarily need any of our a regulatory umbrella to operate at all but they still want to regulate a custodian and they still want a safe acquitted pool. And so that's really what we're bringing here is different models for different types of firms. You could be a fantastic technology company. You could be a banked could be a broker and we have different ways of being able to allow you to integrate seamlessly turnkey way. Turn on buy sell. Hold senate receive as you would like you can kinda choose that part of the adventure to but

"I would say in terms of Trends and digitization. I think one is the fact that there's an application the journey or digitization number two, there is uh, now the verge of online and offline there are various places that we take payments online continues to grow but offline is still a big place where payments happen in the majority of payments actually happen offline off. I'm going digital is the next uh-huh hurdle and Challenge and opportunity. And that would be in terms of touchless pay payments QR codes and so on and you probably seen announcements from PayPal around or launch of cure colds around the world. I would take that off further and say contextual Commerce is going to begin to happen in more places than we've seen in the past with Internet of Things devices that are around us will opt actually become a uh, a uh channel for Commerce to whether it may be your smart speaker or a smart refrigerator or whatever. It may be actually your car. It's just now a server on readers. Can I actually be your location of Commerce now, these are not the best devices on the which you can do traditional input through a keyboard or Mouse and so on Thursday, so you still have been tracked with these devices. So making payments seamless for the longest time payment has been a frictional a frictional activity at the end of operation. And the reason is because we would all go into stores. They put things into a basket will bring it to a checkout counter. We pay there with cash card or some other means dead. And even when we went online, that is the first approach we took we just replicated what happened in the store. What's to say that's the best experience. In fact, it's not we know off we know through the evolution of new Ugg design patterns and experiences. Like, uh, the one that I am beginning to call ambient payments down menu. Take a ride share these days. When do you pay? I would argue that you don't. You express the intent for a ride when the ride is done. The payment automatically happens in the background. And and that is going to become the norm. In fact, you probably see it already with subscriptions and so on most of us probably have more subscriptions than we want which is why it's important to do spring cleaning of subsistence once in a while and and that that level of digitization and payments going into the background is going to occur more and more and and as that happens payments will become easier not only is Cash disappearing cords are disappearing too. And I believe that someday payments as a known act you will begin to disappear as.

"How do we as a company go on a friend's serve and be Border in our aspirations given the opportunity that is presented to us and leverage that to help the world better and also continue to grow more and build even more relevant experiences in this new new paradigm. So so many different things and it is still a journey that's evolving. We have not seen all of it will not learn to all of it and all the war and you you take all the disruption that's home around you you feel empathy you feel sympathy. You want to help the best way possible on the other hand you see the opportunity and you want to definitely leverage and capitalize on that as well. I wouldn't also offer you you're a board member you're on the board of a company called F5 Networks and have been since April. So you joined a board during the course of the the pandemic unusual times it to do so, I'm curious about that experience of being a board member obviously very different from your current role of being in a, you know, an operator and internal person. Now, you're you know an advisor influencer as a phone number will be during you know most unusual time. And as I say at a drink a time when presumably at least you've not been able to get together as a entire board team talk a bit about the Dynamics of that if you would they suck. My my interview process actually started in January. So fortunately I did too got to meet the whole management team and the board before the pandemic hit but I've been uh in a few years but we didn't so far a few more conversations and all of that has been remote or video conferencing and I think all companies have certain foundational wage that they're looking at in a very similar way and uh, the uh, Francois offers the F5 Networks. CEO is an amazing leader wage. Um, and he has put people at the Centre of everything just like that show men with the PayPal done exactly the same and that is the that is the main thing about the Panthers is You first have to look at all things people employees customers and so on connect with them more than you've ever done communicate with them more than you've ever done and so on. So coming back on board itself. I would say the conversation at the border is not very different than the conversation. We are having here at picked out safety and well-being of employees sewing the customers the best we can and even more in these times and of course Safety and Security and so on so long, I wouldn't say that it's any different except for the fact that it's all virtual It's All Digital. It's all happening over video conferences, including my dog boarding which is happening or video conferences and and and so on. Very interesting. Well, I also wanted to you know, as you look to the Future and Beyond the pandemic itself as well. We talked about a number of Trends already germane to the things that you're working on and things you're planning within the PayPal. Are there other trends that particularly excites you is you look out to.

"And here we are in the second week of March saying everybody is going to be remote and here to take thirty thousand people and one of the roles of a CTO is making sure that all the people in the company are now not at the offices that you're built for work, but at their homes which are mostly for the fact of them living with their families and you're tired trying to turn that turn that into a productive workspace. There were a few people within the company who are not removed enabled before particularly our customer support agents and within a span of two weeks to three weeks. We had to make off entire Workforce productive to start with and then if you take that further we are company that values the trust with our customers and we think of that as one of the main things that we are in the business of which means for us information security and how everything is managed as extremely critical. It is in technology for PayPal priority number one, and now all of a sudden the network perimeter of the company was no longer in the office alone. It was now in everybody's home around the world. And we also started to realize that the new network perimeter is not even a physical space like a home is actually our people. And the Cyber threat landscape continues to evolve covid-19 is something that the cybercriminals are leveraging to continue to further their business office and we had a we had amazing, uh security controls before but we took in to start this new reality and made sure that we had built to a level of satisfaction all the controls that were required for this. So first is make everyone productive second is secure everybody wherever they're working from and protect them protecting a customer for think the company and predict the word as a whole from a security perspective and then we focus on productivity and making sure that everybody now that she got their home their secure. What we've seen is called velocity has actually increased a bit wind velocity is increased release velocity is dead. Things at the same time we started to notice that we are now seeing the beginnings of the effects of everyone being remote. So mental health was an important part of the conversation as a c stab started to do a stand-up every single day in the beginning of covid-19 first off talk about our employees and talking about various different topics related covid-19, but eventually getting to the point where we were talking about. Okay, you know, yes, it's a crisis home. But there's a trend here. How do we go on the offensive as a company in terms of our strategy as well? So last but not the least it was about figuring out..

"A bit of an impact all across the globe 200 markets hundred different currencies. They have remarkable remarkable. I want to return to we've talked about the fact that as we do this interview together. We're in the throes of the pandemic, of course and and The Economic Consequences of that among a variety of of trying aspects to what's going on in the world right now. I wonder what are some of the we've talked about the associate wage growth that's happened in digital payments understandably and for the reasons that you articulated so well, I'm wondering as a business. How are you thinking about the indelible? Mark says is going to create on an organization like page. For example, we reach taking this this conversation from our homes. We probably would not be under normal circumstances presumably many of your team members are also working out of their homes as well. And so the topic of the future of work and we're work takes place is something that is certainly on the the minds of a lot of Executives and a lot of employees as well. So I I offer that as one of the areas that I know is of of great discussion across a lot of organ Stations though. Don't necessarily want to limit your answers to that. What are some of those you sort of major marks that you see on a business like PayPal as a result of all this transpired in the past six or seven months. Let me start a little broader and and just say that covid-19 as a pandemic has disrupted the world in a significant way if anyone had mentioned above us that this would be how we be working living, uh-huh and uh continuing to thrive as a community now in February, none of us would have thought and yet here we are like almost six months in and that has been disruptions of livelihoods, uh, cause disruption Holocaust the word and so on but this is the great thing about us as a human race. We are incredibly resilient and we find birth We find a way to gather and we've seen that the first thing that happened and I will take two perspectives one was the world perspective which was off that disruption caused a certain stock not even a pause but a sudden stop in so many things that were considered normal and during that time what we saw on the platform. It's just an incredible growth in people saying what can I do? How can I help? How can I actually make life better for people who are more affected than I am. And and that is where like we literally saw the growth and digital kindness going to a new Peak particularly in the March and April time frame. I think the second perspective it was employed when when this first kicked in we decided, you know, when go entirely remote and we've been a digital in need of company for a long time. We've had remote working for a while, but the whole company is never work from home remotely..

So the question then is how do we drive such interventions and who at the stake holders responsible for this does the government have a role to play? You know, you just left to us as individual. Is there a way that this can be institutionalized because the concern is that you know, we have a huge huge population who on the one hand have become a destabilizing Force in society wage, but on the other hand the the future of the continent, you know, so we need to make sure that you know, this large population of individuals are protected and so who who's responsible for this month? I've had all you said any sounds like, you know, it's common sense and some of them but some people just don't understand if they don't even understand so, how can we help those people? They don't get it right off. Will do that work. Thank you for asking. And the first question is who is responsible you okay? I never really I'm trying.

We had not heard about the papal was your name and address on there? Yeah, and it has a number and a chip. And it has a little sticker for Ah. Here's all very party. Here's the scary part. Someone opened up a bank account with your social security. So you got to get a credit freeze going, man. Okay, Excite and went. Hey, said a habit card. Yeah, it's a debit card. But I've been checking my bank accounts and there. Nothing's going on. But Then I was reading the Internet. A bunch of people are really angry. Because how? Ah, um, stupid. It was for paper also send out these cards to people. But it wasn't a credit card or a debit card. Which means you have a tape. Pallet town. Yeah. If you have a PayPal account, there's nothing wrong with them sending it out. Do you have a PayPal account? One? No. Yeah, That's what I was thinking. He was. What did you used to have one So Fine. That's why I've called. I've traced it to Bank Corp. They're called MasterCard. They can't because it was a MasterCard. They said his papal They gave me Bank Corp and I got their number and they want you to pull the information and Open your account. I don't want to let that card number out. So I finally keep sand, a mask and for someone to talk to, and it goes on because, you know They're busy.

I don't even know what the game would be on a scammer doing that, though. That's what they're opening a bank account so they can fund that somehow. Okay, they opened a bank account. But then why Whitney get information say it's going to be the unemployment one. So they're going to put the unemployment money that they're stealing from somebody else into that bank account, then hopefully activate that PayPal account than they can use it even without the card.

The other night cities all across the country. You your folks have probably heard of some. I haven't because none of the mainstream media reporting on it, even though it's an unbelievably Damaging trend. But yeah, when you look at the footage, though, the hatred The hatred of white people. Is it scary? It's amazing. It's visceral. I mean, innocent folks just sitting there trying to enjoy a meal have never done or said anything racist in their lives or thought anything raising or whatever. Just being targeted and terrorized. It's amazing and certain people will not take that. And so, yeah, Tensions are almost certain rise, but There are also plenty of sane voices. Of folks of color in our message in playing some of this for you is that There is a very small minority of lunatics who are driving the conversation and then a huge number of cowards who either are too dumb to deluded or too afraid to stand up to it.

I didn't have a mother or father to give me away. My father wasn't Fit to be my father. This is my dad here, Jacob Any he's been there since the beginning. He's done everything. He lived life down for me and I always live down for him. I don't judge any man on the color of their skin, but the content of their character. We're here We love it doesn't matter what color it's all about. Love you can't beat hate with hate You beat hate with love. So everyone out there police off fighting. Please come together We can beat it that way with love. Slightly ironic that he's a fighter who just gave a man of beating, you know, serious words. But that was a really beautiful message. I think back to back on our Twitter feed. We had that. And that teacher teaching a classroom of white students about how all white people are inherently racist. Right and damaged and damaged. Yes, that boxer there who had a white dad adopted would disagree. Yeah, and those of poor folks just had to sit there and take it. Being so are being smeared racially. Right in front of him. Sit there and take it anyway, There was a ah, a rally A couple of well those several days ago in Beverly Hills, and we've been meaning to play this tape. But each one of these voices are going to be proud Black Americans who have something to say We'll start with clip 50. Shawn. They're out here.
