Party people, I'm finally not hiking a mountain or driving an average of 5 hours a day. Transparently, the last two sends were the hardest, rushed, and contained a few errors, so thanks for sticking it out.
With that said we have a few announcements:
1. I just joined Spore as Head of Business Development. We're an all-in-one platform helping creators earn and engage with their fans in one place. I can't wait to show you guys what we're working on, but in the meantime, follow me on Twitter for updates.
2.Creator Crew TV, aka my YouTube channel, will be updated bi-weekly or once a month at the latest. It's hard to create quality videos back-to-back on top of this newsletter, but new content is coming soon.
3. This newsletter has grown in ways I couldn't imagine. We have creators, founders, and operators of creator economy startups in the Creator Crew family. I want to connect with you all, so reply to this email if you're down to jam.
Recap: The top clicks in the last send were the NFT platform focused on discoverability and navigating community growth metrics.

Influencer Boxing Is The New WWE
$10M base with 50 percent of PPV shares. That's how much Money Mayweather earned from his Logan Paul fight and that doesn't include his sponsorship deals or Onlyfan's leather hat.
In his own words, Mayweather is the best when it comes to legal bank-robbing. As for Logan, he earned $250k with 10 percent of PPV shares. That doesn't include sponsorships and the announcement of Logan and Jake's boxing promotions company which will be the traffic source fueling their apparel lines and training gyms.
If there's one thing the Paul brothers excel at, it's marketing. By repping boxers, the Paul brothers can market and create cult followings around their talent. Combine these skills with their business acumen, and the sport of boxing could resemble the early days of the WWE.
Apple's Stance on email and what it means for newsletter creators
During Apple's annual "your startup is now obsolete", aka WWDC, the company announced its privacy efforts are extending to email. Naturally, with the popularity of newsletters, everyone began to sweat. Including me.
The biggest change on the email front is the potential impact of tracking open rates and the blocking of email IP addresses. Starting with iOS15, email users will have to opt into protecting their mail activity. Given the 4% opt-in rates for ad tracking, it's safe to assume that email will be the same.
