    gm: Token-Gated Merch and ALTS with Adidas's Erika Wykes-Sneyd

    For a while there, Adidas Web3 lead Erika Wykes-Sneyd worried her push to get the 74-year-old brand working with Web3 partners might not work out. "Like signing a deal with the Bored Ape Yacht Club when Gargamel and Gordon were not doxxed individuals—that got me nervous," she told Stacy Elliott and Andrew Hayward. "Approving the first ever ETH purchase on a public company. Like DAX organizations are pretty risk averse. I was like, definitely could get fired for this." Spoiler: She wasn't fired. Now, the company's crafting narratives for its new ALTS collection.

    gm: Avenged Sevenfold's M. Shadows on Deathbats, Fandom, and AI

    Avenged Sevenfold lead singer Matt Sanders, a.k.a. M. Shadows, is rehearsing for the band's upcoming tour and also figuring out how to upend what it means to be a fan. The band launched a Deathbats Club NFT collection in 2021. That is to say, they were early. The lead singer said it was timed to give fans a chance to get comfortable with Web3 technology ahead of the group's 2023 tour, when the NFT holders can use their Deathbats for early access to tickets. M. Shadows also talks to hosts Andrew Hayward and Stephen Graves about AI and Web3 gaming.

    gm: Mitchell Amador, Immunefi's White Hat Whisperer

    gm: Mitchell Amador, Immunefi's White Hat Whisperer

    When Web3 bug bounty platform Immunefi launched two years ago, CEO and founder Mitchell Amador says the bug bounties weren't great and adoption was slow. But the tides started to turn because even if exploiting a smart contract nets a bigger payday than a bounty, it comes with a huge drawback. "There's a ton of risk when you engage in this, you know, wantonly criminal behavior and steal $200 million from someone else," he said. "There's no way someone's not going to come looking."

    gm: Marco Santori and Kraken Fight Back

    gm: Marco Santori and Kraken Fight Back

    There's no doubt that the SEC dealt Kraken—and the outlook for crypto staking products in the U.S.—a big blow when it announced a $30 million settlement and ordered the company to stop offering the service to its customers in the states in February. Now Marco Santori, the company's chief legal officer, says the exchange is eager to move on from it. That means reckoning with a really challenging regulatory environment and growing its customer base overseas. And as Santori quips: "Kraken's master account application has not yet been rejected."

    gm: Arthur Hayes Says Crypto Failures Are A Sign of The System Cleansing Itself

    gm: Arthur Hayes Says Crypto Failures Are A Sign of The System Cleansing Itself

    Arthur Hayes says the speed at which projects like Terra grow and then implode is a feature of the crypto industry, not a bug. He founded crypto exchange Bitmex in 2014 and then became the original crypto bad boy. In 2021 the DOJ charged him in with violating the U.S. Bank Secrecy Act for not implementing an anti-money laundering program at Bitmex. He plead guilty and was sentenced to two years probation and six months of home detention. In fact, he was still sporting an ankle bracelet on a recent cover of New York Magazine. Now he's living in Singapore, offering up his views on the crypto industry with long form, meme-filled essays, and still thinks the crypto industry will save investors from what he calls a broken banking system. "I don't care if you're capitalist or you're a communist. Everybody put on a lot of debt. We've passed the point where that debt is becoming useful," he said. "And therefore everyone is going to take an L unless they get some crypto or some gold—some hard asset that's outside of the traditional banking system."

    gm: The Mooch Is More Bullish on Bitcoin Than Ever

    gm: The Mooch Is More Bullish on Bitcoin Than Ever

    Anthony Scaramucci of hedge fund SkyBridge Capital got burned by Sam Bankman-Fried: he co-hosted SALT conferences with FTX and sold a 30% stake in SkyBridge to FTX Ventures. And yet, "The Mooch" tells Dan Roberts and Stacy Elliott "I'm more bullish now than I have ever been" on crypto as an investment case. He discusses his frustration with SBF, how wrong he thinks politicians like Elizabeth Warren and Gary Gensler are about crypto and how to regulate it, what he sees happening next with adoption, and we even talk a little Trump.
