BTC Bull ‘Pomp’ Teams Up With TikTok Influencer Bryce Hall to Launch Capital University Podcast

Bryce Hall, a popular TikTok star, is all set to enter the financial realm with popular bitcoin proponent Anthony ‘Pomp’ Pompliano. Teaming up to launch a podcast called “Capital University,” unlike Pomp’s main podcast, which solely focuses on business and promoting bitcoin, this joint venture is focused on reducing the generational divide.

The podcast would be a different exchange of ideas for both the individuals, where Pomp would try to understand how social media influencers earn money. In contrast, Hall will try to learn tips on investments and building generational wealth through smart investment strategies. Hall said,

“I just want to highlight the power and importance of diversification. I do believe crypto is its own asset class and one worth exploring.

It is definitely the Internet’s version of gold with the caveat of having a known finite amount of units.”

Hall raises to fame through the popular short video sharing social media platform TikTok and boasts of around 25 million subscribers across various social media platforms and currently boasts of $2 million in net worth.

Hall also mentioned on Twitter that the new podcast would be a new learning curve in life, especially in terms of finances. He also opened up that currently, he does not hold any cryptocurrency, nor does he have any prior association within the crypto space.

The TikTok star might not have any crypto holdings at present, but given his association with Pomp, it would not be a big surprise if the young social media influencer does eventually invest in digital assets.

Several big shots have already agreed to come on the podcast, including Mark Cuban and Gemini exchange founders, Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss. Given Cuban as well as both of the brothers have made a name for themselves. They could also play a key role in helping the young influencer understand how digital assets work.

Hall also commented on his first guests for the podcast and said,

“When Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss are engaging with your tweets and direct messaging you, you better take what they say seriously and reevaluate your investment positions.” He continued,

“Right now, when you’re at the top, this is when you’re going to be making the most money. You just have to find a way to sustain it.”

Even though the Podcast officially launched yesterday, it has already soared to the number one business podcast in the world. This sudden rise was probably due to Bryce’s 25 million combined social media followers.

DApp Q2 Market Report Shows Massive DeFi Impact in The Decentralized App Ecosystem

The DeFi realm has registered tremendous growth in the past quarter (Q2) with some products posting some impressive figures. $4.9 Billion was channeled through DeFi dApps, a stellar 67% increase from Q1’s figures.

The Basic Attention Token (BAT) emerged as the most popular token in Decentralized Finance Q2 figures recording a transactional value of $930 Million. The token that is utilized by parties in the digital advertising sector, dwarfed Ethereum’s numbers by a cool $300 and more than Ether and Dai combined.

The Ether, on the other hand, saw their active user numbers soar to an All-Time High of 1,258,527 more than doubling Q1’s figures. Their daily average active users have also increased from the 7,682 in the first quarter to over 40% in the second quarter, mostly attributing the COMP governance token launch.

The COMP token, incentivizing debt and lending facilities, has perhaps posted the most notable growth following massive response from the market on launch. Their market capitalization is skyrocketing from $131 Million to more north of $3 Billion in just the second month. Daily user numbers also more than doubling 2,629 to 11,879 as their value of the token achieved an all-time high of $372.27 on 21st June.

However, the supply of the BAT has dipped steadily from $324 million to $155 million last week and now just at $24 Million. This happened as soon as Compound restructured their reward system to scrape off the incentives after the Compound community voted to change their COMP token issuance criteria on 30th June. Just a meager $67 Million BAT has been lent in Compound since the dawn of July.

Notably, after the Hive hard fork from Steem after Sun’s hostile takeover, some budding dApps have opted to move to Hive from Steem. With Steem failing to launch new projects recently, the active users in Hive have now surpassed Steem’s.
