What is Cryptocogs Creator Inks Representation Deal?
Cryptopunks creator Ryan Mundy inks representation deals with some of the biggest Hollywood talent agencies, booking hot stars such as Jessica Alba, Chris Evans, Halle Berry, and Anne Hathaway. A portion of these agents’ revenue is channeled to Cryptopunks through Cryptopunks Investment. The company is run by entrepreneur Ryan Mundy and former director of digital marketing for Altery Shocks, one of the most respected and successful fashion companies in history. Meebits and Autoglyphs are a pair of boutique investment companies run by Chris Morrison.
Meebits is an award-winning jewelry company run by Costume Consultant Melinda Blau. It is a part of Cryptopunks, which also owns Meebits and Autoglyphs. Meebits specializes in creating cutting-edge fashion inspired by current pop culture trends. Autoglyphs on the other hand is a clothing line owned by singer and actress Busta Rhymes who are best known for her hit “Hip Hop Bling”.
This collaboration between a well-known talent agency and an up-and-coming online business comes at a perfect time. There is an abundance of talent deals available on the Internet. This is due to the fact that many of these companies are just starting out and need a wide range of investors to make their products a success. These companies are looking for ways to raise funds to expand their business. Therefore, they are eager to take in investment from a well-established Hollywood talent agency like Cryptopunks.
Another reason this company makes sense as an investor is because of the success it has had in working with top industry insiders. The Cryptopunks team has worked with such notables as director Richard Linkletter, writer Will Smith, and producer Louis Cazalco. Additionally, Cryptopunks has made several successful short films, the most notable of which was “Do Not Mess With The Zohan” which was produced by Walt Disney. In this movie, the lead character played by Smith, Rajesh, ends up following his older sister played by Rhys Ifans with whom he shares a love of hip hop music. The short film was a box office hit making cryptocogs an overnight sensation in Hollywood. The fact that this company is working with the likes of major Hollywood talent agencies proves that it is one of the leaders in representing new and up-and-coming artists.
However, even though Cryptopunks has been successful in working with the stars of Hollywood, this doesn’t mean that the company is going to automatically succeed in negotiating deals with artist’s managers. In the same way that many other entrepreneurs fail in their first attempts to get a deal with major recording artists, Cryptopunk’s representatives were met with resistance from reps for artists such as Kanye West and Dr. Dre. Some sources say that the resistance to this deal is because West and Dre are the highest-paid actors in the world and even if they did allow the company into their contracts it would be difficult to keep them after the deal was done. Another reason that some artists are hesitant to work with Cryptocogs is that the company is owned by music mega-makers Universal Records. Many people believe that the two have an uneasy relationship together. Many agents for artists that are represented by Cryptocogs have received “unwritten” warnings from executives at Universal that they should not go into a deal with Cryptopunks as they are associated with the giant record label.
For this reason, Cryptocogs still holds a low profile but its popularity is growing. Many artists are now beginning to use this company when they are looking for a record label. They use the same company when they are negotiating deals with agents and producers for their record deals. The popularity of this company is also due to the fact that many celebrities who are starting their own labels or putting together their own music groups began with it and decided to continue using it even after signing with other labels. There are also many artists that use the site as a way to promote their own careers. It is estimated that over one hundred fifty thousand people visit the site every day.
