Team Action + Speculation

👀Brandon Rosenblatt

  • Doodles gym shorts with a 6.9' inseam! (unofficial measurement)

👀Bapling

👀Katelin Holloway + Julian Holguin

  • Two doods walk into a bar... We cannot wait until the recordings of this chat goes live, we are itching to dive in and provide everyone with the 411.

👀Katelin Holloway + Alex Ohanian

  • 776 released a brief snippet from last week's interview on CNBC's Crypto World talking about what they saw that was special about Doodles and Alexis reiterating how Katelin was the team member that lead sealing the Doodles fundraising deal! Full interview can be found in last week's TGIDigest.

👀Pharrell

  • Article by Decrypt provides some summary on Katelin and Julian's talk at websummit Lisbon this past week. "He is not just an endorser of the company-- he's a day-to-day influence on the brand and very involved in a lot of the biggest decisions that we're making."

👀Julian Holguin

  • New article from the Block pertaining to his talks about Doodles at Lisbon's websummit. Holguin quickly mentioned the title should read: "Doodles CEO says brand is 'ready to level up,' aims for Disney-level brand recognition." Instead of 'grow up', as Doodles are meant to allow us to channel our inner child. Good read!

👀Evan Keast

  • In response to questions of whether FTX Ventures' investment into Doodles initial funding round may put Doodles into a financial blunder, Founder Tulip provided insight that the demise of FTX does not have ANY impact on Doodles operations. Their check cleared months ago. Needless to say, all is well in Doodleville.

  • Tulip also gave a big shoutout to the tokenproof team for helping create a hassle-free solution to authenticating ownership of Doodles for DoodlePutt sign up and effectively managing to schedule tee times on the fly.

👀Burnt Toast

  • Bullish on good art! This tweet turned into a thread of happy thoughts, compliments, and praise. Bullish on positivity on the timeline. And per usual, we are BULLISH ON BT.
