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.

TikTok Owner ByteDance and a Chinese State Owned Media Partners on Blockchain and AI

The proprietor of renowned video sharing social media platform TikTok has inked a deal for a joint venture with a Chinese state owned media company to develop artificial intelligence as well as blockchain-based business models, Bloomberg reports. The deal will be led by TikTok’s parent company ByteDance.

ByteDance is establishing a joint venture with Dongfang Newspaper. The new joint venture will be based in the capital of Shandong province in China known as Jinan and was launched on Dec. 10. The venture was started with an initial capital of $1.43 million or 10 m Yuan. as per the agreement, ByteDance will be the minority shareholder owning 49% of the new venture while Dongfang will have a 51% stake.

Currently, TikTok has about 500 million users who are active and is ranked second among the most downloaded apps within the Apple Store but only in the US. Cointelegraph alleges that the app is likely to be funneled to the fresh joint venture as its video feed is entirely managed using an AI algorithm that predicts the user preferences and offer content that will fit the user.

Although it is not yet known how TikTok and ByteDance will initially benefit from this agreement, one probable way can be verification of digital media data. It is expected that a currency model could be introduced for the users. There are suggestions that verification of digital media data could be introduced due to the emergence of deepfakes AI-produced videos.

ByteDance has entrenched itself as one of the rapidly growing startups in China and has been in the forefront in the creation of a number of partnerships mostly with state owned media groups in efforts to get content for its recently launched news aggregator platform known as Jinri Toutiao.

ByteDance’s TikTok app has become one of the most sought after apps in the US, especially with the youths and has received endorsements from celebs like Katy Perry as well as Ariana Grande. However, the recent relations with Chinese state owned firms has raised eyebrows in the recent past with the US security agencies cautioning its users to be extra vigilant with the personal data they share within the app.
