Joe: "If you are collecting, buying, or storing NFTs, you absolutely need to be careful … If you get a DM from anyone, especially on discord and Twitter, you do not click on it! DO NOT CLICK … you could lose everything you have. We're in the early days of this, and you have to know how to store them properly." (19:14)
Robert: "When you look at what is going on here, it's the power and responsibility of this idea of new forms of ownership. If you believe in the blockchain …without an intermediary … you live and die by this sword. This is only going to get worse. It will take a court and some sort of intervention at the government level to make something happen." (23:44)
Joe: "We're moving away from the licensing deals where companies like SiriusXM and Spotify that want to buy the properties, and retain control over it." (34:53)
Robert: "The key is that if you're a content creator right now and starting a business, this is a great time [for you]. If you're a big brand and looking for media companies, now is the time to start getting into the buying business." (39:09)
Joe: "TikTok is growing their digital advertising at an immense rate, way faster than Google and Facebook…The biggest player isn't in this article. It'll be larger than Google and Facebook, in my opinion." (47:55)
Robert: "Does this have anything to do with privacy? No, it does not. Does this have anything to do with antitrust? Not really, because who is going to come and compete in this." (50:34)
