Ep 72 | Exporting Economic Freedom with Brian Armstrong of Coinbase

Brian Armstrong is one of the crypto ecosystem's most influential pioneers. As the Co-Founder and CEO of Coinbase, one of the world's leading crypto exchanges, Brian has seen – and helped drive – the growth of blockchain-based networks from obscurity to widespread adoption. In their Money Movement conversation, Brian and Jeremy discussed how the crypto economy can extend global financial inclusion, economic freedom, and opportunity to millions who've been excluded. To take just one example, Brian shared how mortgages to buy homes are very difficult to obtain in Argentina. The result? Only the richest citizens own homes; the rest are limited to renting, shutting off one of the great sources of wealth creation. Brian believes crypto markets can vastly expand economic freedom and access to credit in places like Argentina, empowering a new culture of ownership and helping to dissolve decades of inequality. But to get there, Jeremy and Brian agreed, we must face what's holding crypto back. One big “unlock,” in their view, is regulatory clarity. Another is the scalability of blockchains. They noted what the jump from dial-up to broadband made possible online. A third factor is a usability. Much of the current crypto interface, they said, is too difficult to use.  Brian and Jeremy discussed the regulatory impulse to restrict open networks, fundamental rights that shouldn't compromise in the name of fighting bad actors, and the importance of educating people about crypto's enormous potential beyond the transfer of financial value. *Circle and Coinbase are co-founders of the Centre Consortium, a joint venture aimed at establishing a standard for fiat on the internet and providing a governance framework and network for the global, mainstream adoption of fiat stablecoins.

Brian Armstrong is the Co-Founder and CEO @ Coinbase, the easiest place to buy and sell cryptocurrency. Over the last 10 years, Brian has led Coinbase to today, a public company with over 3,500 employees and revenues of over $7.5BN in 2021. Brian also raised venture funding before going public from some of the best including Fred Wilson @ USV, Micky Malka @ Ribbit, Marc Andreesen @ a16z and Garry and Alexis at Initialized. Prior to founding Coinbase, Brian was a Product Manager @ Airbnb. In Today's Episode with Brian Armstrong We Discuss: 1.) Founding Coinbase: How did Brian make his way from PM @ Airbnb to founding Coinbase? What is Brian running from in his past? What is he running toward in his future? What does Brian know now that he wishes he had known at the start of Coinbase? 2.) Brian Armstrong: The Leader: What does "high performance" mean to Brian in leadership? How does Brian think about stepping off the treadmill for a second and appreciating what has been achieved? How does one celebrate as a team without creating laziness or arrogance? How has Brian most changed as a leader over the last 10 years? On reflection, what does Brian believe are his biggest weaknesses today? 3.) Crucible Moments in the Coinbase Journey: What does Brian mean when he says, "you need to be able to differentiate between a real emergency and a fame emergency?" What is the difference? When Brian made the speech to the Coinbase team on political views in the company, was that a real or fake emergency? What happened? What would he have done differently? Is the failed NFT launch, a real or fake emergency? What big mistakes were made? What are Coinbase doing to correct and improve them? "Bankrupt Coinbase" campaign on social earlier this year, real or fake emergency? What has been Brian's biggest lessons on how to deal with fake news? 4.) Crypto and The Ultimate Mission for Coinbase: What is different about this crypto winter from all other crypto winters? Why did Brian ban discussion on the market cap from employees within Coinbase? How does Brian maintain morale internally when everyone sees the stock at all-time lows? How does the Coinbase mission extend far beyond financial freedom for the world? What does Brian want Coinbase to be in 10 years?

The Scoop
Brian Armstrong reflects on Coinbase's origin story

The Scoop

The cameras have been rolling over at Coinbase, CEO Brian Armstrong revealed last Friday, when he announced the release of Coin: A Founder's Story — a feature-length film over three years in the making. In this episode of The Scoop, Brian Armstrong sits down with host Frank Chaparro to share his thoughts on Coinbase's new film, including his take on how some of the thornier moments of Coinbase's history are portrayed.  As Armstrong explains, he decided to produce the $2 million film because he wanted to “demystify” the ups and downs of taking a company public: “I decided to make this film because I wanted to tell the story of what it really is like to create a tech company — all the way from being on your laptop and writing the first few lines of code, to going and becoming a public company.” The film candidly portrays highlights, such as the moments before Coinbase's public listing, as well as controversies, such as Armstrong declining to answer a question about the BLM movement at a company all-hands meeting, as well as Coinbase's controversial acquisition of Neutrino — a market intelligence firm with members linked to selling spyware to countries like Saudi Arabia, Sudan and Venezuela.  Ten-time Emmy-award-winning producer Greg Kohs had full creative control over Coin, and Armstrong himself “didn't have the ability to change anything.”  With that being said, Armstrong thinks Kohs accurately represented Coinbase's story, and he's happy with how it turned out: “He did show people who disagree with us, people who thought that we had made mistakes, but I actually thought it was a very fair take — and so I'm happy with how it turned out.” Episode 97 of Season 4 of The Scoop was recorded remotely with The Block's Frank Chaparro and Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong.

While some might think it a backward step, for Mark this move connected him with a brand new community and paved the way for him to embed himself into the crypto space in the early days, grow with it and eventually find his way back to  founder with Megapont Ape Club, an NFT membership club for pioneers built on Stacks. I sat down with Mark to talk about his trajectory from engineer to employee to founder, his work with Weasly the artist behind Megapont Ape Club, shared about their upcoming women focused collection, and why diversity and making the NFT and crypto more accessible is the way to creating real world impact. - Meet Our Guest Mark is the co-founder of Megapont and a chain agnostic crypto maxi. Connect with Mark on https://twitter.com/mrkmcknz (Twitter) - What We Unraveled * Mark's background as an engineer, working in the tech art world, and how becoming a dad and a traditional tech job ended up being the catalyst for finding his way into crypto, and eventually, NFTs * The unexpected value in moving to a traditional 9-5 job after being embedded in startups, and the freedom in having stability at the right time * The origins of the Megapont Ape Club NFT membership community, and why it serves as an artist launch pad * The importance of being able to articulate your vision and dream as a founder * Why diversity and accessibility is important to Megapont Ape Club and with NFTs generally * The early days of Megapont Ape Club, how growth changed the way they managed their community, and how much the community itself means to them now * How being at the right place at the right time can change someone's life with crypto and NFTs * The first steps Mark would suggest to anyone who wanted to break into the space, and why he recommends people's starting investment be no more than their entertainment budget * Megapont Ape Club's upcoming female focused NFT collection, and the thought process behind it as a male-led team who are deeply committed to hitting the mark on female representation - Unravel Further https://www.megapont.com/ (Megapont Ape Club on Web) https://twitter.com/MegapontNFT (Megapont Ape Club on Twitter) https://twitter.com/megapont (Weasly) https://www.stacks.co/ (Stacks) https://www.coinbase.com/ (Coinbase) https://twitter.com/brian_armstrong (Brian Armstrong) https://bitcoin.org/en/ (Bitcoin) https://www.gamestop.com/ (GameStop) https://twitter.com/markperera (Mark Parera) https://discord.com/ (Discord) https://www.crashpunks.com/ (Crash Punks) https://bitcoinmonkeys.io/ (Bitcoin Monkeys) https://www.projectindigonft.com/ (Project Indigo) https://www.cryptochicks.app/ (Crypto Chicks) https://worldofwomen.art/ (World of Women) Art of War by Sun Tzu - Connect with Vane Twitter: https://my.captivate.fm/twitter.com/vanesvibes (@vanesvibes) Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/vanesvibes/ (@vanesvibes) YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzWyIZ9APqSrcZ001ddKrZg (Unraveling Crypto) TikTok: https://tiktok.com/@vanesvibes (@vanesvibes) - Did you love this conversation?

Brian is the co-founder and CEO of Coinbase, a company thats reached highs of a valuation of $100 billion. After an adolescence and youth searching for independence where no one could be his boss, he's come a long way, but he's realised he's had to change a lot too. Before anyone had heard of Bitcoin, there was Coinbase. Taking a punt on an industry no one knew and no one understood, Brian quit his lucrative career to be his own man. No one encouraged him. No one. He'd told the idea to hundreds of people before someone told him it could work. In this conversation, Brian brought a wisdom and a nuance about how to run and build a business like very few conversations we've had on this podcast. If you want to know how the best in the world take an idea from drawboard to $100 billion, this is the story of how it happened. Topics: What made you the person you are today Lessons learnt from my first business How traveling shaped me Working for AirB&B and what made it successful The mistake a lot of entrepreneurs make How to build a sustainable company How to incentive your team to take risks My journey starting Coinbase Mistakes & key learnings when starting up Leadership lessons Fake news and dealing with it No politics in the workplace Hiring the best people & layoffs What are the ingredients in your happiness recipe Brian Armstrong: https://twitter.com/brian_armstrong Thirdweb: https://thirdweb.com/ Watch the episodes on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/c/TheDiaryOfACEO/videos Follow us on Telegram: https://t.me/diaryofaceo Sponsors: BlueJeans - https://www.bluejeans.com/ Huel - https://my.huel.com/Steven Crafted - https://bit.ly/3JKOPFx

"I can carry nearly eighty gigs of data in my head." And the Cannon Bros (Frank and Geoff) can talk 2+ hours about 1995's pre-Matrix Keanu cyberpunk flick "JOHNNY MNEMONIC"! A "COULD'VE BEEN A CANNON" picked by Patreon member Brian Armstrong! We thought it couldn't get more 90's than "Tank Girl", but Johnny Mnemonic is a Fruitopia-soaked Gateway Computer running Windows '95 while Stabbing Westward blares from your Sony Discman! It's gold, Jerry! Slammin' electro-hard rock soundtrack? An angry Ice T character? A talking dolphin with telepathic abilities?! Keanu being Keanu?! There's plenty here to make an argument for it being considered a "COULD'VE Been A Cannon". By the end, you'll understand why it boasts the tagline: "A pulse-pounding cyber-slam"!
