Cryptovista sat down with Mike Jones, ex-Myspace CEO and co-founder and managing director of the crypto and consumer venture firm Science Inc to hear his topline thoughts on the crypto space. Mike is an investor in successful Web3 startups like Dapper Labs, RealBlocks and Protego. Science Inc. serves as the startup studio behind household consumer brands like Liquid Death and Dollar Shave Club.
What are your priorities for the next 12 months?
For the next 12 months our priorities at Science Inc. will focus on supporting our core crypto portfolio companies such as Open3, DAOLabs, Mammoth and Protego.
Additionally we’re looking to scale our liquid trading crypto fund, to allow our investors diversification in the growing crypto market.
What does crypto mean to you and what drew you to it?
For me, crypto presents the next frontier in our digital advancement. Crypto has created a new platform for users to build upon – from infrastructure to consumer. Its open system allows new types of products, incentives and platforms to emerge.
Our studio is exploring ideas, and our venture firm is meeting with founders building the next wave of blockchain and crypto products that we’re excited to introduce down the road.
What is your long-term view of crypto?
I believe crypto will rewrite our global financial system and redefine how consumers utilise their liquid capital.
What advice would you give people investing in crypto?
First, I’d like to note that I am not a financial adviser. However, my advice to anyone who is interested in venturing into crypto is simple: start now.
How do you feel about the way the world is regulating crypto?
I think as regulation clarity comes into focus, the amount of assets and capital that will enter the market will be rapid. We’re beginning to see this already, but I believe this will ramp up even more as entities and individuals begin testing out Web3 and all it has to offer.
