– And then he goes, “Do you have a punk? ” And I’m like, “What’s a punk? “( gathering roaring) And he lowered threeminutes on CryptoPunks, I had to run cause the family something and then that night, started a 45 -7 5 hour journey over a one week period where I destroyed everythingabout CryptoPunks and by Mid-January, I was of the view that I wasgonna buy a lot of them. You got your perspective.( upbeat music) I exactly wanna be happy, don’t you wanna be happy? – But what was it about CryptoPunks that sort of represented youwanna be so obsessive that you precisely hopped in? – At that quality, because ofwhat I was already doing, I had felt we were close to the time. You know, my careerwinelibrary.com in’ 96, you know, what I didin social in’ 05,’ 06, my vocation is what I’mdoing right now with VR, I watch from very far away and then when I thinkthey’re ready to jump in, in a year, in two years, in 18 months, in 9 months, when it’s on the pre-dawn ofthe moment, that’s when I jump.And I think that’s what I’m good at. – So you felt Decemberlast year was the pre-dawn. – Yes. I are of the view that 2021 wasgonna be a year of it. – And then you croaked all in. -[ Gary] All in. – I have never seen anytechnology so rapidly accepted. – There’s a reasonablenes. There’s money and greed involved. And that’s- – But don’t you think it’s- that might be one? – That’s why it’s happening Jodee.( gathering giggling) – But that’s okay if wecollectively know what this is, right?( gathering hearten) We have to understand that there’s amazing things going on now, but give there be no fluster, 90% of the people currently in our seat, are in the business of daytrading NFT’s to make a bag.And that’s okay, but wehave to understand it. It’s also dangerous, wehave to understand it. This happened with internet inventories in’ 95. This is what happens, therewas something called gold, that’s what we did, itwas called the gold rush, like this happens. In the macro, this is the mostinteresting technology shift since the internet decided to go social. – I think there’s been pent-up demand rather than undoubtedly greed to actually own your own content. And it may be that your friends are the ones who are theday speculators, but my friends-( audience laughter) I think there’s a broader society that actually wants to seesomething about themselves in their NFT’s or compile. -[ Gary] A hundred percent. A hundred percentage. That’s why it’s gonna bephenomenal, it’s artistic, it’s bringing a lot of usback to a innovative home that we gave up at 7, 9, 12, 13, there’s incredible nirvana in this moment. The vigor I’m generating islet’s not be hypocrites.I’m sitting at dinners and joins and watching dialogues in disagreements of we’re the anti-establishment, we’re this, we’re that. But then what they’re really saying is I’m gonna mint this and flip it. And so what we have tobe collectively aware of is if we don’t go through thismoment with eyes wide open- Let me tell you how this always plays out when we don’t go in with noses wide open, it becomes oversaturated, it becomes too … The conversations around money, there’s tons of exchange around skill, there’s even moreconversation around the money. And fund scares me becausepeople form bad decisions. -[ Jodee] Yeah, it scares me too. – And I’m watching … The thing I do for a living is I watch. You know, I talk a lot so I confound beings cause it ever seems like I’mtalking, motive I talk a lot and I pump out a lot of content, but the reality is 90% of my daylight is watching and I’m watching, andpeople are very clever and some people are not clever, but it all is going around the same thing.This reminds me of a lot ofWeb 2 on the great things, take control of our own, all this substance, you are well aware, Web 2 startedoff highly nirvana more. -[ Jodee] Yeah – But give there be- -[ Jodee] But it didn’t work out that nature. -[ Gary] Of route it did. I love how everyone’s likesocial media’s so bad. I’m like, you mean youliked the alternative of mainstream media? You signify the mediacommunication infrastructure that led to the most fascism, tyranny, and fightings. Let’s not do confused right now, I understand the currentconversation is to raz social, but this concept that the media that used to be controlled by4 9 people was so much better, I think we’re a littlebit lacking thoughtfulness to the conversation. – Well, let me employed itdifferently though which is; we have, as consumers, wehave jump-start on countless tends, microcomputers, apple, various brands, portable telephony, Nokia, Blackberry, and then more recently social networks, Facebook, Twitter, Google, and every time as consumerswe’ve jumped in with both paw, someone else has ended upcontrolling what we’re doing. What I love about where we are now, apart from the money-making part- -[ Gary] It’s not true.- Is if it’s actually decentralized. – It’s not decentralized. -[ Jodee] I think it is. – No, it’s really not, let’s talk about why. The technology’s decentralized. Is anybody watching what’s going on. The humen become the centralization. – But that moves, becausethe centralization is moving because the technology allowsthe centralization to move. – Until we take accountabilityfor our own acts, we will denounced programmes and beings.( public applaud and applauding) Guys, gallons, this is animportant conversation. Everyone’s like, this isawesome, it’s decentralization. I devoted 13 hours detecting an master identified Sarah in Texas that I like, and exactly literally say, oh, I like this art, and then I get 400 DM’s saying, you’re the centralizationnow you motherfucker.( public chortling) Okay, like this thought- The biggest matter that leads to unhappinessand anxiety in society is the decision thatsomebody else commands you. Like, what are you gonna accused when it becomes decentralized? Other humen? Something else? Like, what are you gonna blame? Like, it’s fascinating. Like, you are well aware, you were there. Social was competingagainst Rupert Murdoch and three old-time white-hot dudes that assured all our thoughts.Social. Now it’s like this fuckingalgorithm becomes me a prejudiced. Fuck you! You’re a prejudiced.( public applauding and praising) Facebook shaped zero parties racist. Facebook exposed the racist.( public heartening and saluting) So I’m not confused whatthe current speech is. I’m very happy that everyone’sexcited to blame Twitter and Facebook and I’ll behere in 10 times sitting here and you’ll be blamingcentralization granted humen to have too much control. Because they’re blaming Elon, Jodee. -[ Jodee] Say that again. -[ Gary] They’re blaming Elon. – No , no one would blame Elon. -[ Gary] Of trend, they’re blaming Elon. – Pumped it up, ran it down. Guys, you know what’s decentralized? When you have enough self-esteemto think for yourself.( gathering hearten and praising) That’s decentralized. This is gonna play out very, very simply. It’s going to becomedecentralized engineering. Governments are gonnafight for centralization.- I think you’ve sort ofmanipulated the polemic.( public giggling) I fantasize where we were goingwas the cost creation in social networks is centralized and the evaluate creation in theNFT space is decentralized. – It merely wasn’t. This thought that Facebook Inc and Twitter and everybody else got all the value. What about the 8 trillionfucking influencers that had no audience, thatpaid good-for-nothing to get attention in return and become millionsand millions of dollars.What about that, Jodee?( audience laughter) Like this thought that theykept all the economics, like it’s absurd. It’s real. – Oh, you’re talking aboutthe influencers on social who make money out ofhaving lots of followers. – You mean the people thatpaid nothing for the attention in a life whatever it is you pay for attention? Yes, I’m talking about that. It’s a very important conversation. – It’s a great conversation.- Right, induce pre socialmedia, if you missed notice, I did this for my dad’s business. I had to pay $ 80,000 to anewspaper to get a full-page ad. Then I just made a YouTube video. Like there’s a busines there. – Don’t you think oneof the craziest things in the history of marketingis that CMO’s of firebrands pay to have parties followtheir Facebook page and then they paid Facebook? – CMO’s of symbols ofbig companies don’t know what’s going on in the realityof the current marketplace.- But I recollect the CMO’s ofbrands now have an opportunity to have their own NFTmarketplaces with their own devotees. – As they should. And I can’t wait for it. – They’re on their own stages. Not deep inside Facebook- – Jodee, I can’t wait. I’m here for it. – I love your work. – I love you too. Like I’m here for it. I repute the exertion I’mbringing this morning is let’s have 360 discussions. Like 360 conversations are healthful. Here’s a good one in the NFT land. The community’s gonna drive it. Let’s talk about something else. -[ Jodee] This is thecommunity by the way. – This is a great community.- This is a community. – Let’s talk about what’shappening in our seat. Let’s go into the details. Gary, this project, you know, this porcupine with fucking, a comedian nose, right? This project’s gonna worknot because of the founders, but because of the communities.So I sit and think about that, right? So Jodee, do you know howmany Bulls, Chicago Bulls devotees there were in my NewJersey high school in 1992? – Say that again, what? -[ Gary] How numerous, Iknow you’re an Aussie. How many– I’m not, I’m a New Yorker! -[ Gary] I know you’re a New Yorker. – I “ve told you” I was a New Yorker. – You’re for 40 seconds. Jodee, listen.( gathering laughter) How many Chicago Bulls devotees were in my New Jersey high school in 1992? – Tell me. -[ Gary] Half the fucking institution. – Wow. – Because Michael Jordan wasdoing his thing and everybody in the community was wearing Bull swag. How many Cops supporters are in my high school, in New Jersey right now Jodee? Zero. The community is all for it because their money’s tied up in it. But if the founder’s of the project can’t navigate it to success, the love aren’t gonnashow up to the stadium. We have to be very thoughtful about this. There’s just a lot of things happen…Listen Jodee, you werethere in’ 05,’ 06,’ 07 when I was coming up. – Yeah, we both joinedTwitter the same month. -[ Gary] That’s right. You recall, like thatthere was all those convos and I conceive the reasonI get to be here today is cause I’ve steered those1 five years a specific way. And for me, when I sit, my obligation, when I doan interview like this, is I’m gonna give everybodyhere my best stuff, they’re gonna do whateverthey can do with it. I could be wrong, I’ve been wrong before, I could be right. But what I’m watching iswhat I envisioned in’ 06 and’ 07 which is the conversation’sone dimensional. And if you peel the seam off, an unfortunate quantity of it is really about short-term fiscals. And I think that for us to achieve what we all probably subconsciouslyand consciously want, we need to level up the convoof what’s happening here and there’s a lot happeninghere and a lot of good, but we also have to watch out for some of the things the hell is brewing.- So only zooming out to 35,000 hoofs, what industries do youthink are gonna be disrupted by NFT’s over the next 12 months? – Over the next 12 months? I signify, to be Frank, Idon’t really think about it in that terms, I’ll tell you why. If you told me that questionin 1995, about the internet, I wouldn’t have knownthat Jeff Bezos’ talent was gonna be deployed against bookstores. I wouldn’t have known that, right? I wouldn’t have known that some guy, whose bride was a Pez collector, was gonna build E-bay. But I knew in 1995, if I wassitting here as a 20 year aged, I would have said all of them. And that’s what I felt about social and that’s what I know ishappening right here, right now. Every business is gonna be affected by what we’re talking about right now, I merely don’t know what gal in Tennessee has an idea right now andis gonna start something that’s gonna go after this or what being in, you know, Harlem is gonna go after transportation, but what I can tell you isthere won’t be an industry not addressed, feigned, changed, impacted by the infrastructureof decentralized servers with a scaffold, whetherit’s SOL or Cardano, or ETH, with apps being builton top of it at scale, it’s gonna fucking change the world and it’s gonna changeit in a big fucking way .( gathering clapping and applauding) – Well, I’d like to say thank you to you on behalf of the community, because numerous people say to mefrom outside this community, why have NFT’s been so successful? And I say three things to them. One, one of the smartest market planneds, safaruss I’ve ever seen for $69 million, everyone inthe world was talking about the sale of the Beeple artwork. That was amazing.- That was the moment. That’s one, that’s one. People staying at home consuming Clubhouse because Clubhouse was .. And not in this order, by the way. And then the last thing is you. Because you have done somuch for this community in being so passionate about it. So big-hearted thank you.( public clap and acclaiming) – That’s very nice. Everybody, it’s really why I wanna talk.You know, it’s funny, I’m an financier, I’m a businessman. I wanna go to a garagesale and buy something for a dollar or for$ 5, it doesn’t mean I don’t understand what’s happening in the macro that I crave everybody tobe more musing about. And most importantly, thething we have to watch out for is the hypocrisy. The bigger chance is theway we’re talking about it, but then truly it’s about, can I fling this for 5x, right? Like we have to be veryconscious about this because here’s what’s likely gonna happen if we stay this channel. If we stay this acces, thenwhat’s gonna really happen is we’re gonna have a big clang cause there’s too muchsupply, expect won’t catch up. People are moving around parishes, I’m incredibly worriedabout beings speculation coin they can’t afford.You know, if you look at Wall Street, when people bet money they can’t yield and they lose it all, it should contribute to suicide. Is our gap ready forsomebody to commit suicide cause they got a rug-pull, right? Like there’s a lot here. – See, I’m really surprised how much you’re focusingon the flipping percentage, because I discover so many peoplein the broader community who, you are well aware, theywanna have a CryptoPunk because they mightthink it looks like them or their bride or someone. In fact, we have someonetalking later today about that. And it’s tribal, it’s tribal. I don’t think it’s justabout the flipping. – Listen, I was informed that. And again, you know, whatI’m trying to do here in the limited time, is returning a conversation to the forefront that I conclude could include, because I’m buying everythingthat I think we’re all buying, there’s so much, you are well aware, there’s so much excitement.I don’t think that countless people are buying a $ 500,000 CryptoPunkcause it looks like them.( gathering laughable) -[ Jodee] Well, wait tilyou examine who said that. Wait till you examine the who. It’s someone talking todayabout why they did that. – But I signify, do you know what I make? – Well, but CryptoPunkwas a placeholder for prowes, you are well aware, for things, for collectings. – Look, this has been thegreatest thing that has happened to the independent masters in a long time and I’m fucking here forit cause I enjoy all of you.( audience applauding) – Amen, amen, – One. Two, there is just the thingI adoration about’ 06 -‘ 09, the friendships thatyou’re all about to acquire with each other, like, delight, satisfy, delight, satisfy, whenever there’s, I don’t know what theprogramming looks like here, but if you go out for a few minutes, delight, some people are moreintroverted, I get that. But for beings that are alittle bit more introverted things of that sort, this is exactly thecommunity at this moment where everybody is as energized for you to come and say hello to them as they are to you.This is literally your bestfriend, your business partner, soul you might marry isliterally sitting in now right now .( audience laugh) And I know this cause I sawit in the last two waves. Please push yourself tosay hello to a stranger when you guys have disintegrates, delight. -[ Jodee] Totally, absolutely, absolutely.( gathering shouting and applauding) – YouTube watcher, what’s up, it’s Gary V.
