Pattern Brands has just announced that they're acquiring Onsen Towels.What was it like to see the market go from 20,000 using Shopify as a platform to now 2 million? Well, Nick Ling can tell you. What is it like to help founders become millionaires? He can tell you that, too.Phillip takes some time with Nick Ling to talk about Pattern's Acquisition of Onsen, how they build trust with founders, and why they hold strong views loosely as they build differently.Time and Trust“Good brands aren't built overnight. It takes time to build a loyal audience and a really great product.” - NickBuilding trust is a very important aspect of how Pattern approaches brand acquisitions.“It's never been more exciting to be an entrepreneur and consumer in general. There's a much bigger community and there are a lot more interesting ideas bubbling to the top.” - NickThe past couple of years have been the toughest yet for eCommerce businesses because there have been so many challenges to navigate and also big growth to be had“As a company what we're trying to do is keep an open mind towards how you really can grow brands in the evolved environment that we have today.” - Nick“Brands are more valuable as brands than just products because you're buying into a way of life and you build trust.” - Nick“You're an incubator on a few levels. You're building brands, and you're building brand operators, and you're building people with aspirations who seem to want to go build things for themselves.” - PhillipAt Pattern Brands there are new problems to solve all the time because they are building in a very different wayAssociated Links:Check out Onsen at OnsenTowel.comSubscribe to Insiders and Senses to read more of our hot takes!

eCommerce is in need of a deconstructionist movement. Brands should question the norms of their behaviors and their beliefs of “best practices,” but we don't always take time to reflect.In this episode, Phillip and Brian explore the nature of deconstructionism, why eCommerce is due for a deconstructionist movement, the quiet builders in our space, and the influence of artists in our space. Listen now!Building the FutureAn eCommerce deconstructionist movement is needed where we question our norms and we question our beliefs and why we do the things we doPeople who build the future do things that haven't been done yet. “If you want to build a pretty successful brand using only best-practices, go for it. But if you want to build the future, you have to do things that have never been done.” - Phillip“In reality, the thing that is differentiating you is your efficiency in your ability to build something new, not to reinvent the thing that already exists.” - Phillip“You can build a successful business without questioning things. You're just never going to be a front-runner.” - BrianIf you can't question why and what you're doing as a brand, then maybe you shouldn't exist as a brandLike Ju Rhyu who “quietly built” to her huge success, there are many out there who are quietly buildingIt's interesting to learn what inspires your heroes, especially when their heroes are people you've not even heard of before (Phillip and Brian have some intriguing examples of who has inspired them)“I think that fiction writers and musicians are infinitely more effective than nonfiction writers. I believe in the power of story and the power of mediums that can convey more than one meaning at once. I believe in multi-dimensional thinking.” - Brian“In the future, there are a scant few who actually can create an impact and emotional resonance and shape the way that customers' desires pull other parts of the industry forward. They are artists in their own right.” - PhillipAssociated Links:Phillip recommends Dirt and Blackbird Spyplane as two publications to check out and enjoyBrian recommends listening to Acquired.fm's episode on the history of Amazon (buckle up because it's four hours)Subscribe to Insiders and Senses to read more of our hot takes!

On today's episode of DeFi Decoded, Alex and Andrew speak to Anthony Di Iorio, co-founder of Ethereum and Founder of Jaxx and Decentral. Anthony dedicates much of his time to helping Ethereum and other blockchains become more decentralized, resilient, and widely used. He's also a passionate advocate for Canada and his hometown of Toronto. It's a little-known fact but Ethereum is a made-in-Canada story, with key founders including Vitalik Buterin, from Toronto. Anthony talks with Andrew and Alex about how Canada missed an opportunity to be the centre for Web3 and what it can do to be a leader again.
Mags joins Phillip and Brian to discuss the role of Web3 and the blockchain as we enter into the new wave of commerce. Does Web3 open up a new world of possibilities for brands to interact with and meet the needs of their customers? How can brands and investors partner with celebrities to solve problems? Listen now! Mindful Web3A successful approach to Web3, from a brand perspective, is asking questions like "Why would we do this? Why should we care? Why should our customers care? And what can we bring to the table that's different and unique because it's built on blockchain?"“We are just going to be scratching the surface right now of the Starbucks product, but it will embolden other brands to think about what they can do and what they can do in the right way as opposed to a campaign PR-y way.” - Magdalena“If you want the ultimate decentralization something has to give because you can't have it all in the blockchain context. You either get cheap transactions or you get ultimate security in decentralization and you can't have everything at once.” - MagdalenaDoes aligning with a celebrity institute a playbook that other consumer brands have used to try to gain scale?“If a celebrity has a brand, then a brand itself is also a mind virus that will find a way to propagate. Extremely successful brands are just very efficient propagation of a virus that likes to replicate. And that's why we have enduring brands that last for centuries.” - Phillip“The magic happens when you are really good at multiple things because you have something that no one else competing with you in each individual area.” - Magdalena“One of the things that's a big misconception of private equity that I hate that it's all just acquiring, stripping it off, and then question mark, question mark, question mark, profit. That's not how this works. It's very much a partnership because there is something magical in the underlying business and there is a value that the private equity firm can bring to grow it faster than it would grow on its own, independent of just the capital.” - MagdalenaCommercially-minded celebrities can help investors solve problems of distribution and attention with the networks they already have.Associated Links:Learn more about Magdalena Kala and @magdalenakala on TwitterSubscribe to Insiders and Senses to read more of our hot takes!

On September 15th, 2022, Ethereum became a proof-of-stake network. On today's episode Andrew and Alex break down what happened, how it changes the investment case for Ethereum and what it means for the future of Web3. The significance is hard to overstate: by some estimates this will reduce Ethereum's carbon footprint by 99%. It will clear the deck for future upgrades to make Ethereum more scalable and useful. It will radically alter the supply and demand dynamics and may make Ethereum a high-yielding deflationary asset, attracting new kinds of financial investors. It will provide clarity to enterprises who want to build on public Web3 infrastructure. It could even improve the image of blockchain technology, easing pressure from policymakers. They also discuss the impact on cryptoassets as a whole, how it could impact Bitcoin and what it means for alt-L1s.

Alfred Hitchcock's The Lady Vanishes was released in 1938 and is based, in part, on the book "The Wheel Spins". It has been remade three times for the big screen and television. As the title implies, a lady vanishes while on a train. This movie is full of intrigue and is a fantastic spy story.

On this week's episode of DeFi Decoded, Alex and Andrew sit down with Zaki Manian, a veteran crypto entrepreneur and co-founder of Sommelier Finance. DeFi is moving at such a rapid clip, it is difficult for most investors to stay on top of the latest trends and even more challenging to make educated investment decisions. Sommelier Finance aims to solve this problem by providing access to proven strategies supported by on-chain data in a fully decentralized way, essentially acting as a ‘guide' to the bewildering world, similar to a wine sommelier. Sommelier is an Ethereum application built with Cosmos technology. But really, this is a stepping stone to a future state. Zaki believes by next year, Cosmos will be so advanced that most of the DeFi mind-share will be in that ecosystem, rather than Ethereum. In the spirit (ahem) of viniculture, if Ethereum is France (home to wine making for many years) than Cosmos is California – still undeveloped but with the potential for better terroir!

"Dogecoin is sponsoring the Jamaican bobsled team." This is the first time Sunny Aggarwal first heard about crypto, back when he was a high school student in California. The friend might as well have been speaking Klingon, because the sentence made no sense to Sunny, so he went home and googled Dogecoin which led him down the Bitcoin rabbit-hole. He was hooked, or shall we say "doge-pilled." Fast forward to today and Sunny is one of Web3's most creative entrepreneurs, having co-founded Osmosis, the most popular decentralized exchange in the Interchain ecosystem. He's also a fan favourite here at DeFi Decoded. When we last had Sunny on the show, Osmosis had just closed a major financing and its TVL was nearing $1 billion. Bitcoin was nearing an all-time high and crypto markets were close to topping $3 trillion. While market conditions have changed, the case for DeFi has never been stronger. On this episode, Alex and Sunny talk about the core value proposition for DeFi, which is "privacy for the individual, transparency for the system," why DeFi fared far better in the crisis than CeFi, what it will take to onboard the masses to Osmosis, why the recent crypto slump hasn't impacted funding for good projects, how Osmosis became a refuge for Terra Luna developers following that platform's collapse.

How do blockchain networks like Ethereum, supporting thousands of applications, billions in capital and millions of users, actually work? What is the essential infrastructure supporting cryptopunks, DeFi smart contracts, GameFi guilds, stablecoins, and other Web3 innovations? To the average user, the inner workings of blockchains are mysterious. In many ways, this reflects the technology's growing maturity and ubiquity. After all, most people are blissfully unaware of how their laptop, car and microwave functions. But sometimes, the technology gets thrust to the forefront of the conversation. The upcoming Ethereum Merge and the Tornado Cash situation have focused the spotlight on node operators, largely unseen but critical infrastructure providers. On today's episode, Alex and Andrew sit down with Sharon Byrne-Cotter of Infura, to look under Ethereum's hood at the engine parts that keep the Web3 car chugging along. Tune in!

In many ways, they're very similar to DTC brands as they become easy to launch, and the early movers have made a lot of moneyNFTs signal loyalty. They're a way to assign value to what it means to be associated with a brand.“Hype alone isn't enough to build an enduring brand or community.” There has to be a non-monetary reason that people are engaged in community — for sneakerheads this is the love of the culture and nostalgia that endures well past childhood. Sneakerheads come from many different backgrounds and walks of life. A digital goods community around sneakers may be much more durable than any other PFP (Picture for Proof) project.NFT Project creators are doxxing themselves now to increase optionality. There's a lot more to gain by having a trusted reputation as a person than there is as a cartoon avatar.“I think of the community from which sneakers actually emanate. How can I make it so that anybody can be rewarded even for their participation, for their love of and the passion of whatever that community represents?” – Brandon Martinez“Everything we're doing online has an offline analog.

Vibe Shift, Say What?Brian is live from Etail East, covering what's going on, how it went, and how far conference season has come since last year.We're not talking about data anymore… we're talking about vibes. We talk about them in The Senses, but the vibe shift is different for everything. “The funniest thing about this idea of vibe shift is that everyone is having a really hard time defining what it is and where we're going.” – BrianIn the wise words of Brian Lange, “you can't have a vibe if you're not with somebody.”Everyone is casting lots of their communal vibes into a pool, and a layer cake is happening of what the new vibe is. If the vibes are wrong, you go and find a new vibe. People are going to follow the algorithm no matter what, it's just who we are. “If the algorithm is the ultimate media, the message is humanity is unnecessary.” – BrianThe algorithm is taking over things that humanity can analyze, those being: what is, what could be, and what should be. “This person's livelihood is at the mercy of the algorithm.” –Phillip When you don't update the algorithm soon enough, the crying selfie is what happens. Eventually, it leads to undesirable outcomes because everyone plays the game well.Associated Links:The SensesInsiders #128: The Asynchronous FictionThe Medium is the Massage from Marshall McLuhanEpisode 266: There's Nothing New Under the SunVisions Episode 4: Our Sh*tty Robot FutureFrom the Atlantic: Why the Old Elite Spend So Much Time At WorkThe Network StateSubscribe to Insiders and Senses to read more of our hot takes!

Ethereum has outperformed Bitcoin recently and now sits at 50% of Bitcoin's market capitalization. This has some observers suggesting the "flippening," where Ethereum surpasses Bitcoin in market value, is in grasp. Ethereum has gotten close to Bitcoin's market capitalization before, namely in Summer 2017 at the beginning of the ICO craze, hitting 80% of Bitcoin's value, only to crater to 10% at the bottom of the bear market. Is this time different? On this episode of DeFI Decoded, Andrew and Alex get into it. Plus, they discuss the fallout in crypto from the Tornado Cash crackdown, including a 'dusting attack' that sent celebrities like Shaquille O'Neal crypto from a Tornado Cash wallet, making them unwittingly in violation of OFAC...and what it all could mean for the future of decentralization.
Why does American Democracy look the way it does today and how can we make it more responsive to the people it was formed to serve? Democracy Decoded, a podcast by Campaign Legal Center, examines our government and discusses innovative ideas that could lead to a stronger, more transparent, accountable and inclusive democracy. This episode focuses on on a recent election n Maine, where one of the holes in our campaign finance laws allowed a foreign government to funnel enormous sums of money into a ballot measure election — completely legally. Host Simone Leeper speaks with Richard Bennett, a Republican state senator from Maine; Kyle Bailey, Campaign Manager for Protect Maine Elections and a former state representative; and AaRon McKean, legal counsel for state and local reform at Campaign Legal Center.ResourcesProtect Maine Elections

Tune in now!“Third-Party Cookies Be Damned”The ability to have control is attractive to brands, and that's one thing web3-based loyalty platforms provide, which creates incentives for merchants and brands to be more experimental.Regarding whether web3 is anything new or novel: “What it's actually enabling is more modalities to come into the digital space that we're accustomed to having in real life.” -PhillipThe way we use tokens right now isn't going to stay this way. Right now tokens are all the hype, but soon they will become a way to get stuff done.Pokemon Go is back on the craze, even though it's a blast from past of six years ago. The question is, will we get engrossed in AR examples that are layered over top of a reality we already cohabitate in?“We've spent the last phase of the internet in this situation where people really didn't care as to where the data was, but we've started to see that shift of “where is my data?”'- SeyiRegarding the growth of browser plugins and blockchain analysis: “Third-party cookies be damned.

This week, the U.S. Treasury Department announced sanctions on Tornado Cash, a popular 'mixer' that allows individuals to do crypto transactions anonymously. Typically, sanctions are placed on individuals and institutions. In this case, the government was sanctioning an open-source software project and a neutral tool used by many. This sets a potentially dangerous precedent, which Alex and Andrew discuss on this week's episode. Plus the guys talk about the better than expected CPI print and the impact on crypto before finally giving an update on the status of the Merge.

Today, Philip and Brian welcome back Kendall Dickieson to chat about the creator economy, how TikTok is changing the way for brands, digital pruning, and how creation affects community. Tune in now! Balancing the Why The Creator economy has begun to shift the DTC space and change the landscape, but there is still proof in the pudding. “Platforms like TikTok have exposed the true analytics for the most part, but there's still things on the back end that we don't really know unless we ask the creator.” -KendallDigital pruning- where we should be watering and filtering our social channels, and tending to our gardens (accounts.)There can be an over-pruning of social accounts and your community. Brands and creators should be watchful of these thresholds“There's so much that brands need to do to exist on social from the content creation side to now, contracting out creators, to building out teams.” -KendallPhillip poses the question: Does the creation of a community become undermined by most people going to a social platform and getting them to move out of the entertainment box to the getting value box?Great marketing and a great product equals amazing success Associated Links:Learn more about Kendall Dickieson Listen to our other episode with Kendall!Subscribe to Insiders and Senses to read more of our hot takes!

In this episode, we call into question some of the factors that have led to the decline of DTC and how pent-up frustration with products that cost more without delivering on their promise will soon be a vestige of a bygone era. Listen now! Revisiting DTC Groupthink and Brand Criticism“The Uncorkening” is a latent criticism that was stymied by the loudest voices in an ecosystem who didn't feel that they had permission to speak up, has now been unleashedDTC models (particularly VC-backed IPO exits) have proven unsuccessful. The original promise was that DTC would remove middlemen and form a direct connection with the consumer; meanwhile, eCommerce is nothing but middlemen. Many products don't live up to the hype. Another factor of The Uncorkening in DTC is that the loudest voices and advocates for DTC have often silenced criticism by playing a trump card — to critique a small brand is to criticize the founder behind the brand.The loudest DTC voices have quieted. As capital outcomes wither for those who had built their reputations on the examination of the DTC space, the loudest voices were silenced. Due in large part to The Great Resignation and the inaccessibility of capital in the current state of the markets, many of the most visible DTC acolytes have moved on to new projects or industries.What will The Uncorkening make us not want to buy next?Associated Links:Subscribe to Insiders and Senses to read more of our hot takes!

What I learned from reading Chronicles: Volume One by Bob Dylan.Listen to every full episode for $10 a month or $99 a year. The key ideas you'll learn pays for the subscription cost thousands of times over.[0:51] No one could block his way and he didn't have any time to waste.[2:38] Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself. —Bob Dylan[3:01] The best talk on YouTube for entrepreneurs: Runnin' Down a Dream: How to Succeed and Thrive in a Career You Love by Bill Gurley[3:21] Estée: A Success Story by Estée Lauder (Founders #217)[7:52] Billy asked me who I saw myself like in today's music scene. I told him, nobody. I really didn't see myself like anybody.[8:12] We may be in the same genre but we don't put out the same product.[16:34] What really set me apart in these days was my repertoire. It was more formidable than the rest of the players. There were a lot of better musicians around but there wasn't anybody close in nature to what I was doing.[18:00] Bob spends a lot of time thinking about and studying history.[20:34] I'd come from a long ways off and had started from a long ways down. But now destiny was about to manifest itself. I felt like it was looking right at me and nobody else.[21:27] I walked over to the window and looked outside. The air was bitter cold but the fire in my mind was never out. It was like a wind vane that was constantly spinning.[21:45] It is incredible how much reading this guy is going to do. He takes ideas from everything that he reads and applies it to his work.[22:30] Towering figures that the world would never see the likes of again, men who relied on their own resolve, for better or worse, every one of them prepared to act alone, indifferent to approval—indifferent to wealth or love, all presiding over the destiny of mankind and reducing the world to rubble. Coming from a long line of Alexanders and Julius Caesars, Genghis Khans, Charlemagnes and Napoleons, they carved up the world. They would not be denied and were impossible to reckon with—rude barbarians stampeding across the earth and hammering out their own ideas of geography.[26:29] Alexander the Great: The Brief Life and Towering Exploits of History's Greatest Conqueror--As Told By His Original Biographers by Arrian, Plutarch, and Quintus Curtius Rufus. (Founders #232)[29:37] I don't think there's been another human invention that can evoke deeper emotions than a great book —than great writing.[31:17] “What an astonishing thing a book is. It's a flat object made from a tree with flexible parts on which are imprinted lots of funny dark squiggles. But one glance at it and you're inside the mind of another person, maybe somebody dead for thousands of years. Across the millennia, an author is speaking clearly and silently inside your head, directly to you. Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people who never knew each other, citizens of distant epochs. Books break the shackles of time. A book is proof that humans are capable of working magic." —Carl Sagan[32:35] On War by Carl von Clausewitz[37:55] I knew what I was doing and wasn't going to take a step back or retreat for anybody.[46:40] This idea of being completely separate from the outside world is a main theme in the book.[48:00] Being true to yourself. That was the thing.[51:11] After a while you learn that privacy is something you can sell but you can't buy it back.[57:44] Too many distractions had turned my musical path into a jungle of vines.[58:29] There was a missing person inside of myself and I needed to find him.[59:53] You have to find ways to get out of your own head.[1:01:47] At first it was hard going like drilling through a brick wall. All I did was taste the dust.[1:05:14] Sometimes you could be looking for heaven in the wrong places. Sometimes it could be under your feet or in your bed.[1:07:25] Decoded by Jay Z. (Founders #238)[1:07:42] Somebody different was bound to come along sooner or later who would know that world, been born and raised with it. . . be all of it and more. He'd be able to balance himself on one leg on a tightrope that stretched across the universe and you'd know him when he came-there'd be only one like him.[1:08:23] A new performer was bound to appear. He'd be doing it with hard words and he'd be working 18 hours a day.[1:09:15] Advice from his Dad:“Remember, Robert, in life anything can happen. Even if you don't have all the things you want, be grateful for the things you don't have that you don't want."[1:11:54] I was beginning to feel like a character from within these songs, even beginning to think like one.[1:12:28] Y'all can't match my hustleYou can't catch my hustleYou can't fathom my love dudeLock yourself in a room doin' five beats a day for three summersI deserve to do these numbers[1:12:51] I played morning, noon and night. That's all I did, usually fell asleep with the guitar in my hands. I went through the entire summer this way.[1:13:31] The place I was living was no more than an empty storage room with a sink and a window looking into an alley, no closet, a toilet down the hall. I put a mattress on the floor.[1:15:22] Bound for Glory: The Hard-Driving, Truth-Telling, Autobiography of America's Great Poet-Folk Singer by Woody Guthrie—“I have listened to every episode released and look forward to every episode that comes out. The only criticism I would have is that after each podcast I usually want to buy the book because I am interested so my poor wallet suffers. ”— GarethBe like Gareth.
