🎙️Steph Curry’s Multi-Billion Dollar Future in Crypto | Pod 181
What’s up everybody, it’s LG Doucet here.
The podcast is back!
After 180 episodes, 50+ live shows, and probably hundred more Twitter Spaces, the podcast finally took a little break to start the month, while I took some time to think about what I want this show to be long term.
Like I said in the last pod, The First Mint is a web3 sports community.
We laugh. We cry. We cheer. We flip, mint, and look to each other for long term belief and reassurance in a space that is revered by the banks and ridiculed by the mainstream.
We’re bullish on our people, but not too much on any given project. And we want our sports buddies to join us, no matter how skeptical they may be.
In brainstorming the long term direction of the pod, I diverted away from the “daily coverage” model (which we do with our tweets anyway), and focused on the stories.
Stories that we can share with the skeptics. Share with our dads. Share with our peers.
There are a lot of incredible things happening behind the scenes in crypto, especially in the sports world. Businesses investing. Athletes committing. Killer apps and ideas being developed. But you wouldn’t know it if you only spent time in Discord and Twitter.
So from this day forward, the podcast will shine a light on those stories, and report on them in a curious but sober way.
To me it honestly feels like a whole new pod. Yes, the voice (mine) is the same, the subject matter very similar - but the canvas is different. Already I feel rejuvenated and like I’ve got a much bigger and more inspiring world to cover.
I hope you like it. And whether you do or don’t, please let me know since its the very first one.
👑 Today’s Pod: Steph Curry’s Multi-Billion Dollar Future in Crypto
For our first act, we look at the chef himself.
4x time champion. 2x time MVP. And the all time leader in 3 pointers. This man basically changed the game with his shooting, and is set to change the crypto game once its all said and done.
In this episode, we look at Steph Curry’s career, business dealings, remarkable shoe deal with Under Armor, and all the plays he’s made in blockchain.
I won’t spoil the whole show. So instead, here are the numbers to look for:
$500 Million: the number that Steph is aiming for with his personal wealth.
$1.3 Billion: how much Michael Jordan’s Nike deal has been worth to MJ these last 28 years.
Less than $4 Million: how much Nike could have paid to retain Steph as an athlete in 2013, but let him walk to Under Armor (lol!).
88 ETH: How much Steph has spent on NFTs.
$7 Million: How much Steph’s NFT collections have sold in secondary marketplace volume.
Number #5: Steph’s spot on Forbes list of highest earning athletes in 2022. He comes in $92.8M, with $45.8M from his salary and $47M from endorsements.
Number #4: Steph’s position on a list of Generation Z’s most liked athletes.
All that and more in today’s show.
