It's me! Hi! (I'm not the problem, just the podcast's host, here to bring you the latest greatest in startup and tech news this fine Monday morning). Welcome back to Equity, the podcast about the business of startups, where we unpack the numbers and nuance behind the headlines. And for those of you who hummed the first sentence of this post, extra points to you.I'm starting things off this week as a test run before Alex heads on paternity leave. We have lots to get to, so shake off the holiday feels and let's remember how this ecosystem works?Here's what we got to:The markets are broadly down, due to COVID-19 protests breaking out in China. Blockfi filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Our crypto reporter Jacquelyn Melinek has more on what happened - and she explains just how intertwined this universe is. I'll also get to notes I took from our recent crypto conference and how the reality may be looking like Web 2.5 before it looks like Web 3.0.We also talk about Amazon's three-pronged retreat, and the common thread of India between them all.After that, some good news from all-women led venture firm Pact and its debut fund. More funding for climate startups, please. Tim keeps writing about really cool ones.We end with a note on Pipe, a $2 billion fintech that announced all of its co-founders are stepping down from their roles last week. Soon after that decision was announced, rumors and allegations began flying about tensions under the hood at the fintech. Mary Ann Azevedo has the story and keep reading the site today for the follow up. As I said on Twitter, on one end, when three founders step down in a single moment, people are undoubtedly going to talk and worry (out loud) about the stability of the company.That was fun. Thanks for letting me spend a bit of your Monday with you. More to come!

The lurid collapse of FTX and with it Crytpo sentiment the world over bring to mind an old adage in high Finance. When the tide goes out, we find out who was really swimming naked. And it turns out, in the far off Bahamas, Sam Bankman-Fried was not only swimming naked. He was riding a jet ski that you paid for. What do we really mean? That in the end, the recent mania surrounding Crypto was only sustained by central bank policy. Put that much liquidity in the system, and the frontier of the risk curve, say a token like FTT, or any other crypto project with dubious innovation to recommend it, will rally. But drain liquidity, raise interest rates, crush institutional appetite, and an exchange collateralized only by the belief that Crypto was the future was bound to go bust. Say what you will about potential criminality. Bear and Lehman made the same mistake. Excessive leverage built on lofty valuations will always form dry grass for the next brushfire to carry out. In times like these, though, it is too easy to write off the whole space as trivial or deserving of its inevitable comeuppance. Every innovation is left for dead more than once. Even the internet was disparaged as little more than a cute version of the Fax machine. Until it became evident only in hindsight that it was just as consequential as the industrial revolution. In the end, it does force us to re-examine what projects actually have use cases, far off as they might seem. As ever, we discuss.

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?

1. Markets are trying to start a bear market rally. Today, the major indexes are higher across the board. tech seems to be the lagged despite being positive. That is something that catches my eye right away. 2. Energy is on fire today. Oil is trading higher by 5.9% to $84.00 a barrel. Oil looks very good on the charts. In fact, today I closed out an oil call option for 34% in one trading day. Energy stocks are also surging in the session. Natural gas is under some pressure today trading lower by 5.0%, but that needed to correct from a very overbought condition.  3. Tesla (TSLA) is falling today, breaking lower by 6.3%. The company came up short for Q3 delivery estimates. 3. Precious metals are strong today. Gold is higher by 1.5%, but silver is stealing the show with a 8% gain. As you know, silver is my favorite position right now. Full disclosure:  I own SLV and SIL call options4. Bitcoin is flat, but  trading above 19K. So it lives to fight another day right now, but as I have said repeatedly it will eventually fall below 13K on the next decline.
