The Scoop
Multicoin's Kyle Samani on when token models make sense

The Scoop

In the last episode of The Scoop, we explored why some venture capitalists are becoming reluctant to invest in token models. However, not all VCs in the crypto space share this sentiment. Multicoin Capital — a VC whose combined crypto funds total nearly $550 million — is “primarily token investors,” according to managing partner Kyle Samani. In this episode of The Scoop, Kyle Samani talks through some of Multicoin's recent investments and lays out when the token model can be an effective value capture mechanism for up-and-coming crypto projects. As Samani explains, token incentives are ideal for projects that require a large initial investment in exchange for prolonged rewards: “If you can identify use cases where the token is incentivizing one upfront action that has long lasting or perpetual value creation elsewhere, that is a super, super compelling way to use token incentives.” Episode 90 of Season 4 of The Scoop was recorded live at SALT New York 2022 with The Block's Frank Chaparro and Research Director George Calle with Multicoin Capital Managing Partner Kyle Samani.

Venture capitalists are shunning tokens, say veteran crypto investors

Last year's bull market exuberance is a distant memory, as are the wildly inflated crypto funding rounds that attracted an unprecedented amount of venture capital to the space. In this episode of The Scoop, CoinShare's Chief Strategy Officer Meltem Demirors and Aglaé Ventures Managing Partner Vanessa Grellet unpack how the crypto VC landscape has changed since last year's bull market, and particularly why venture capitalists are becoming more reluctant to invest in early token rounds. As Demirors explains, savvy investors are realizing the token model is not always the best way to capture value: “There's now consideration of the fact that tokens, in particular governance tokens, are not necessarily the best way to capture value creation… an investor who's willing to write really large checks is going to have some fundamental questions around monetization that doesn't just rely on ‘number-go-up' tokenomics.” According to Grellet, regulatory concerns — particularly regarding some token models' similarity to unregistered securities — are another reason tokens are not as attractive to investors these days. While hesitancy regarding seed-stage token rounds is becoming more widespread, Grellet believes there is still interest in tokens if they make sense as part of larger equity investments: “We see a lot of investors being comfortable with both the equity and a token option so that if the main company has one project, but also has several other projects that warrant tokens, then you can have upside in the ongoing life of the company.” Episode 89 of Season 4 of The Scoop was recorded live with The Block's Frank Chaparro, CoinShares CSO Meltem Demirors, and Aglaé Ventures' Managing Partner Vanessa Grellet.

Why crypto domain names could evolve into the internet's first identity system

The Scoop

Unstoppable Domains allows users to register domain names via non-fungible tokens (NFTs) which can then be used to receive crypto payments, and as digital identity markers around Web3. In July, the company raised $65 million in a Series A, successfully clinching ‘unicorn' status at a $1 billion valuation. In this episode of The Scoop, Unstoppable Domains' Founder and CEO Matt Gould explains why NFT domain names are likely the future identity system for Web3, and how persistent digital identities will redefine the importance of online reputation.  As Gould explains, once people start using an NFT domain as part of their online identity, additional interactions with Web3 applications will link more information to that NFT domain name, and a digital identity begins to emerge:  “We think this is a big deal because there really isn't an identity system for the Internet yet, and a lot of people in the space think this is probably one of the big unlocks for crypto and blockchain over the next several years.” If this new NFT-based identity system develops the way Gould anticipates, then it will also be significantly harder for people to create fake reputations on Web3 platforms. Given bots and scammers are notorious problems on existing Web2 platforms, Gould thinks the implications could fundamentally change how we view online interactions: “Reputation that comes from having persistent digital identities is another huge benefit — not only owning your data, but being able to create your reputation will make online interactions hopefully more pleasant.” Episode 88 of Season 4 of The Scoop was recorded live withhe Block's Frank Chaparro and Unstoppable Domains Founder and CEO Matt Gould.

FTX's Brett Harrison unpacks how regulatory uncertainty holds back the crypto industry

Back in July, the SEC launched an investigation into Coinbase for allegedly listing several tokens that should have been listed as securities.  Yesterday, SEC Chair Gary Gensler made comments that indicate he believes more crypto exchanges and broker-dealers are still in violation of guidelines put in place under former SEC Chair Clayton in 2017. In this episode of The Scoop, FTX President Brett Harrison shares how FTX US is striving to avoid regulatory issues, and why regulatory clarity in the digital asset space will lead to more domestic innovation in the US.  According to Harrison, the onus of “deciding what to list is on the exchange.. but that doesn't necessarily prevent future enforcement if the regulatory agency in this case disagrees.” Given this dynamic, FTX US lists a limited number of tokens out of an abundance of caution. As Harrison explains: “We have fewer than 30 tokens on our exchange, and we think that's fortunately or unfortunately the long term play that will work for us until there is better clarity in terms of what registration is going to be required.” Although FTX US is not currently listing a broader selection of tokens, Harrison does believe many crypto projects would gladly register with the SEC if a clear framework existed: “I think a lot of token projects would register and quite happily do so if there was a clear process for it, because they want to get listed on US exchanges, they want to be able to operate their company in the US without worrying about enforcement action down the road — they would like for their tokens to have security like properties.” Episode 87 of Season 4 of The Scoop was recorded live with The Block's Frank Chaparro and FTX President Brett Harrison.

In part one of this three-part Ethereum Merge special edition of The Scoop, Lex Sokolin — head economist at Consensys — examined how The Merge will improve web3's reputation outside of the crypto space. In this episode of The Scoop, Ethereum Foundation researcher Danny Ryan provides a technical overview of The Merge, and explains why it took longer than expected to prepare the network for its transition to proof of stake. According to Ryan, changing the consensus mechanism of an active blockchain is no small feat: “It's like we built this better plane and started flying it next to the existing proof-of-work plane, and we're actually taking the payload, we're taking all the contents out of the proof-of-work plane, and we're putting in this other plane in flight.” Although The Merge was initially supposed to happen years ago, translating the mathematical concepts that underpin the proof-of-stake consensus mechanism into production took longer than expected. As Ryan explains, “You have these beautiful mathematical algorithms and proofs and design goals, and then when it comes time to actually turn that into something concrete and actionable, there's a lot of work to do.” Episode 85 of Season 4 of The Scoop was recorded remotely with The Block's Tim Copeland and Ethereum Foundation researcher Danny Ryan.

After years of anticipation and development, the Ethereum blockchain is finally on the verge of transitioning its consensus mechanism from proof-of-work to a more energy-efficient mechanism known as proof-of-stake. According to a blog post from The Ethereum Foundation, switching the consensus mechanism of the blockchain is like changing the engine of a spaceship, and in just a few days, it will be “time to hot-swap the new engine for the old mid-flight.” In this special Ethereum Merge edition of The Scoop, Lex Sokolin, head economist at leading Ethereum development company ConsenSys, examines the implications of Ethereum's Merge for the future of the network. During the discussion, Sokolin explains why the switch will help improve the reputation of web3 outside of the crypto space — particularly with those who prefer ESG investments. A long-standing criticism of cryptocurrency technology singles out the amount of energy required to power the underlying blockchains. According to Sokolin, the fact that Ethereum is set to reduce its energy consumption by roughly 99.95% will help alleviate this concern: “I think removing the objection around ESG is very meaningful because it does change culturally some of the value proposition of Ethereum to those communities who take really seriously these issues around electricity consumption and impact.” By removing ESG concerns, Sokolin hopes more people in the world will be able to see the potential for web3 technology, without having to worry about negative externalities. As Sokolin explains, “A lot of how people align with web3 and crypto is through idealistic storytelling about what the world could be, and it's really important to be open minded and have a kind of hope for what new platforms can create.” Episode 84 of Season 4 of The Scoop was recorded remotely with The Block's Tim Copeland and ConsenSys Head Economist Lex Sokolin.

In this episode of The Scoop, Hxro co-founder and CEO Dan Gunsberg joins host Frank Chaparro to unpack the idea behind the Hxro protocol and to explain how Hxro hopes to solve liquidity problems that currently exist in the decentralized derivative space. According to Gunsberg, the technology underlying Hxro Network allows anyone to create a decentralized derivative product: “Effectively anybody will be able to come and create any type of derivative product on Hxro Network's protocol… the core protocol is something called ‘Dexterity,' and the idea of it is that it's really just the generalized architecture for the payoff function and the accounting mechanisms of a derivative.” Not only does Hxro allow users to build any type of derivative product, “the beauty” of the platform is the way in which it will unify liquidity to create more efficient markets, Gunsberg believes. Gunsberg explains, “Once those markets are created, they all exist in the base layer protocol and then any application can tap those markets… so what you end up with is this unification of liquidity across many applications and many users, that all bottoms out into the same marketplace depending on the product.” Episode 83 of Season 4 of The Scoop was recorded remotely with The Block's Frank Chaparro and Hxro Co-Founder & CEO Dan Gunsberg.

Last time Paolo Ardoino came on The Scoop podcast back in 2019, the USDT stablecoin had a market cap of less than $5 billion. Today, that number has risen to more than $66 billion, according to data from The Block's Data Dashboard. While Ardoino serves as both the CTO of Tether (the issuing company behind USDT), as well as CTO of the crypto exchange Bitfinex, recently he has been focusing much of his attention on developing Holepunch — a fully encrypted platform for peer-to-peer applications. In this episode of The Scoop, Paolo Ardoino shares his vision for the future of peer-to-peer technology, which he believes is in line with "the original ethos of the World Wide Web." According to Ardoino, we already possess the hardware necessary to facilitate peer-to-peer data transfer in a more efficient way than existing centralized platforms allow: "The biggest lie ever is that our hardware, our devices, our iPods, phones don't have the capacity to do great things — actually, they are much more powerful than what we think." While our devices may be powerful, Ardoino suggests that having to route data through centralized servers creates unnecessary latency which limits performance: "I'm talking to you, I'm calling you, and there is no reason why my signal — all my data — should pass through a centralized server. There is today, in 2022, no need for that." The first app to be deployed on the Holepunch peer-to-peer technology is a video calling service named Keet. Whereas centralized video streaming platforms are forced to compress data to facilitate global demand, the direct peer-to-peer connection provided by Holepunch allows Keet to facilitate much higher quality video connections. According to Ardoino, "You have to take a shower before using Keet because we get 4K video from you, and it's not compressed."

BlockFi CEO shares lessons learned from liquidating 3AC

Earlier this summer, the collapse of Three Arrows Capital (3AC) sent the crypto lending world into chaos. Many lenders suffered heavy losses due to 3AC exposure and some were forced into bankruptcy. BlockFi — a prominent crypto lender that was valued at nearly $5 billion during the height of the bull market — was one of the firms that took a big hit when 3AC collapsed, prompting the company's shareholders to approve a $680 million deal with FTX US that outlines a path to a potential acquisition later next year.  In this episode of The Scoop, BlockFi CEO Zac Prince candidly recounted the events surrounding his firm's liquidation of Three Arrows Capital. He also explained his personal philosophy regarding the relationship that a crypto lender should have with its customers.  Prince expressed during the interview that he firmly believes that BlockFi's clients should be given priority consideration: "I have a very fundamental belief that in the type of business that Blockfi is, you can't screw over your clients and still have a business, period. That's not an option and that's not something that Blockfi is ever going to do on my watch." When asked directly about Three Arrows Capital, Prince responded, "I also respect that these are still people and I hope that they're doing okay, but there's a whole mountain of legal and potentially civil and criminal things that they'll be dealing with in the foreseeable future."

While NFT projects grew in popularity, so too did brand recognition — and the interest of talent representatives to sign them on. United Talent Agency (UTA) was among the first in August of 2021, when it signed CryptoPunks and Meebits creators Larva Labs, followed by Deadfellaz in April of this year. Other talent representatives got into web3 as well, such as Creative Artists Agency (CAA) signing on the NFT collector 0xb1 in October 2021 and even hiring a Chief Metaverse Officer in August of this year.  But why did talent representatives like UTA sign on these NFT brands at all? Why do NFT brands need talent representation?  To get to the heart of these questions, MK sat down with UTA's head of web3, Lesley Silverman. Silverman has been at UTA for the past seven years, educating artists on the utility of web3 and helping interested artists launch their web3 brand. Before joining UTA, Silverman worked as a fine arts lawyer, and she says this experience shaped how she lead UTA through the NFT space.  Episode 80 of Season 4 of The Scoop was recorded remotely with The Block's MK Manoylov and Lesley Silverman, Head of Web3 at United Talent Agency.

Plaid, a fintech infrastructure and payments provider aiming to simplify the digital financial ecosystem through a single API, recently announced big crypto players such as Gemini and Binance.US are joining its network of financial institutions. The move is part of Plaid's broader effort to integrate both legacy institutions and crypto service providers into its platform, which was valued at more than $13 billion last year after a $425 million fundraise. In this episode of The Scoop, Plaid's head of UK, Keith Grose, joins host Frank Chaparro to discuss how its integration with crypto platforms is helping bring new users into the ecosystem, and to break down what the future of digital finance will look like. According to Grose, users' digital financial interactions will increasingly be controlled by a single wallet that is able to move seamlessly between different platforms: "You are essentially, as a user, going to have this back end wallet, whether it's your bank account or your crypto wallet, that you control the keys to and you can take wherever you want to use it around the digital world. That's where we're headed." While Plaid is built to cater to a range of digital financial platforms, Grose points out that all financial transactions ultimately come down to trust: "What we're really talking about when you're talking about payments is trust… and I think we're more and more moving to a place where trust is becoming digital, and proving trust online in the digital world is very different than proving trust in a physical, community based system that most of humanity has been in for most of history."

Policy Scoop with Aislinn Keely: Grayscale CLO on taking their bitcoin ETF rejection to the courts

The US has yet to see a spot bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF) reach the market, but when a futures-based product got the green light from the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) last year, issuers were hopeful. Some thought it signified the regulator becoming more comfortable with crypto products and a spot ETF could be on the horizon. But since then, the SEC continued to shoot down application after application on the basis that there aren't sufficient mechanisms to prevent price manipulation in the spot market. Grayscale, which has long desired to convert its flagship GBTC product into an ETF, took issue with this. During the SEC's continued extensions on its application, and after a series of rejections of other similar applications, the firm sent a letter saying the regulator could be violating its own procedures by approving a futures product but refusing to allow a spot-based product. The firm argued that futures are priced based on the underlying spot market, meaning any price manipulation in the spot market would affect futures products. The idea is if the regulator is comfortable with futures, it should be comfortable with a spot-based product. But Grayscale, too, received a rejection weeks later, spurring it to mount a legal challenge in the DC Court of Appeals. Now, it's gearing up to submit its first brief in the case, detailing its qualms with the SEC's rejection of its application. In this week's episode of Policy Scoop, Aislinn Keely sat down with Grayscale's Chief Legal Officer, Craig Salm, to take an in-depth look at the firm's argument. "It wasn't a decision that we made lightly, and during the course of that comment letter period, we had a couple of meetings with the Commission to try to work through their questions and the issues presented, lay out the arguments and reasoning why we felt that if they were okay with futures, they should now be okay with spot," said Salm.

Fractional — a crypto startup whose tech allows individual non-fungible tokens (NFTs) to be locked in a smart contract, and then 'fractionalized' into fungible digital pieces — is changing its name to 'Tessera.'  In addition to the name change, Tessera announced they closed a $20 million Series A earlier this summer in a funding round led by Paradigm. In this episode of The Scoop, Tessera co-founder and CEO Andy Chorlian explains how fractionalized NFTs foster new digital communities, and why 'Tessera' is a more suitable name for the direction of the platform. According to Chorlian, Tessera is helping new communities form by taking 'blue-chip' NFTs that could cost tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars, and making them more accessible to the average collector: "It's really just reshaping what it is that's exciting about a particular NFT or owning that NFT — generally more so in like the collecting things that you love and meeting other like minded people and being in interesting communities." The team decided to move away from 'Fractional' — a name that "sounds like a DeFi protocol," according to Chorlian — in favor of 'Tessera' because of the word's dual meaning and resonance with the vision for the platform: "It is the name of a tile used to create mosaic artwork, and the other use… is the idea of a membership pass or an identity card, and that really hit two of the main things that we think our product and NFTs in general are cool and exciting for."

Over the course of the past two decades, Grammy Award-winning DJ, André Allen Anjos (also known as RAC) has noticed a growing trend. "There's been a trend since 2005 in the MySpace era, and all of that has been a trend towards sovereignty of an artist, of putting the artists on top," he says. RAC is an advisor to Audius — a decentralized music streaming platform that raised $5 million last September from big names including Coinbase Ventures and Pantera Capital, along with popular artists such as Jason Derulo and Katy Perry. In this episode of The Scoop, RAC and Audius Co-Founder and CEO Roneil Rumburg examine the limitations of centralized music streaming platforms and explain how data ownership in web3 allows artists to redefine their relationship to their fans.  Rumburg argues that centralized streaming platforms prevent artists from establishing a direct connection with their fanbase. "There shouldn't be this sense of 'platform lock-in' that we have today on Spotify or places like that where, as a creator, you don't really know who your fans are, and you don't have the ability to port that fan base between experiences." RAC has first-hand experience with this problem: while the DJ has 5.5 million followers on SoundCloud, his fanbase is "locked" into the platform. Artists "don't own that connection in any way," he says. Audius is designed to avoid that, according to Rumburg. "Our company could go away tomorrow, and all of this would keep working… From the artist's perspective, there's no lock in here. You can take your following and your data that you have here and use it anywhere else."

CoinShares — a London-based crypto firm whose operations include asset management, venture capital, and proprietary trading — had exposure to Terra's "algorithmic" stablecoin UST, the collapse of which resulted in a loss of $21 million for the firm's trading unit of the business. In this episode of The Scoop, CoinShares CEO Jean-Marie Mognetti provides an inside look at how CoinShares navigated Terra's collapse, and why crypto's "private company environment" leads to marketplace uncertainty. According to Mognetti, a lack of standardized disclosure requirements for crypto firms makes it difficult to verify balance sheet details. "The opacity despite all the progress we're doing is quite intense, so you don't have as much information as you want." While Mognetti points to Voyager Digital as an example of a crypto company that has fully disclosed the state of its book, he acknowledges this is likely due to Voyager's status as a publicly traded company — for private companies, the disclosure requirements aren't nearly as robust and largely vary by jurisdiction. This leads to uncertainty, Mognetti argued. "Even if they tell you they're good, you don't know what they have in the book and against whom they are exposed."

Block CEO Jack Dorsey has called 'Web5,' a decentralized identity platform under development by TBD, the Block's blockchain arm, "likely our most important contribution to the internet." In this episode of The Scoop, TBD lead Mike Brock explains how Web5, whose name is a play on the idea of connecting Web2 and Web3, aims to reimagine the way trust is established and maintained, and how digital identity can connect the emerging decentralized financial system to the existing real-world economy. Hardcore crypto proponents dream of creating a fully decentralized, trustless system. But Brock says there are some practical problems with transacting in such a world: "Are you going to go and buy a gold watch from an anonymous online merchant and then send them a non-reversible payment for $10,000 and just hope that it gets drop-shipped to you?... We can't build an economy around that. We have to have a way to authenticate with the real world." That's where the Web5 platform comes in. Brock describes it as a "messaging layer that ultimately allows you to establish secure transactions, with negotiated social trust." Users of Web5 are in control of both their identities and their data — something Brock believes will facilitate a new way for the developing decentralized economy to connect with known, verifiable actors in the real world: "We're trying to build on-ramps and off-ramps from the real world — fundamentally, that's what digital identity ultimately gets you."

As Gokal explains, some people who visit Solana Spaces' first location in Manhattan are discovering that web3 might not be as daunting as it seems: "There's hundreds of people coming through — just starting their first Phantom wallet, sending their first USDC, and learning, 'okay, using crypto is like not that complicated.'"In addition to the inroads Solana is making in the physical world, Solana is currently hosting a virtual hackathon called 'Summer Camp' — the largest Solana hackathon to date, according to Gokal:  "The hackathon that's going right now has almost 14,000 developers.

Circle's USDC stablecoin is the second largest by market capitalization, and has steadily grown in dominance over the last couple of years. In this episode of The Scoop, Chief Strategy Officer and Head of Global Policy at Circle, Dante Disparte, joins host Frank Chaparro to share his take on what a responsible approach to stablecoin regulation might look like and why he believes central bank digital currencies are "anti-democratic." According to Disparte, the separation between the central banks and citizens' pockets is important to maintain: "The gap between the central bank, the banking system, your wallet and how you spend money is a powerful feature and not a bug." Furthermore, Dante believes that central bank digital currencies ignore the fundamental peer-to-peer potential of digital assets: "A central bank digital currency would be the equivalent of building a high speed train engine, but not caring about the rail network, nor the station stops. And the real powerful breakthrough of blockchain based finance is that the infrastructure has networked peer to peer station stops." During this episode, Chaparro and Disparte also discuss: The difference between 'risk' and 'uncertainty' Stablecoin standards Non-USD denominated stablecoins Episode 72 of Season 4 of The Scoop was recorded remotely with The Block's Frank Chaparro, and Chief Strategy Officer and Head of Global Policy at Circle, Dante Disparte.

Earlier this year, crypto infrastructure provider Talos closed a $105 million Series B for a valuation of $1.25 billion. In this episode of The Scoop, Talos cofounders Ethan Feldman and Anton Katz provide insider perspectives on how institutions have been positioning themselves during the crypto market's recent upheaval, and why they believe the industry will rebound stronger than ever before. As Katz points out during the interview, the more market participants think about risk, the more stable the industry will become: “I think a lot of people are revising how they're thinking about risk… So overall, I think what we're going to see is actually we're going to see a much more robust, much safer credit market emerge as a result of this.” In addition to firms beefing up internal risk management, the Talos co-founders also believe regulation will also play a major role in helping the crypto ecosystem grow. According to Feldman: “Regulation is an enabler to some extent, right? This is what's going to enable the bigger institutions in the world to actually trade spot crypto.” Episode 71 of Season 4 of The Scoop was recorded remotely with The Block's Frank Chaparro, and Talos Co-Founders Ethan Feldman and Anton Katz.

A crypto fund that just raised $450 million offers bull case for web3

Variant — a venture capital firm founded on the idea that the next iteration of the internet is going to be defined by decentralized, user-owned networks — has raised $450 million to be deployed across two new funds. In this episode of The Scoop, Variant co-founders Jesse Walden and Spencer Noon reveal how they plan on allocating the capital — and why Variant remains bullish on the long-term future of web3. According to Walden, the technology powering the emerging web3 industry will only improve from here: “In the history of technology, technology doesn't get worse and disappear — it gets better and more pervasive. And that's happening at an exponential rate in Web3, because this is all software, it's all open source, and there's just tons of talent jumping in... So the tech is working, and again, I think that means it's only going to be more pervasive.” Although web3 is still in its infancy, the Variant co-founders believe elements of it are already disrupting their centralized equivalents. For example, Walden describes how certain distressed lenders recently prioritized paying back loans to DeFi protocols over other counterparties: “DeFi protocols were the only protocols that got paid back by some of these institutions that blew up … the transparency and sort of enforcement of these smart contracts can actually have better outcomes than the alternative, which is opacity and sort of trust in the wrong parties.” Episode 70 of Season 4 of The Scoop was recorded remotely with The Block's Frank Chaparro, and Variant Co-Founders Jesse Walden and Spencer Noon.
