Lakeside Software Welcomes New Chief Revenue and Chief Marketing Officers

With the rapid transformation of the distributed workforce and need for analytics and automation to cost-effectively improve the computing experience of employees, the demand for Lakeside’s digital experience monitoring (DEM) platform, SysTrack, is dramatically increasing. Widespread deployment of Lakeside’s platform in 20% of Global 500 accounts as well as the strong adoption of its cloud solution has further propelled Lakeside’s growth, driving the need to ramp up its go-to-market operations.

As Chief Revenue Officer, Eric Fischer will lead global field operations, including sales, channel, customer success, and professional services. Prior to Lakeside, Eric was a senior sales executive in multiple SaaS firms, most recently driving growth from $3 million to $360 million at Dynatrace and increasing recurring revenue by 3x at both Turbonomic and BitSight.

“I am excited to join Lakeside at this inflection point in the company’s history,” says Fischer. “Given the strength of our customer base and continued product innovations, I see a huge opportunity for Lakeside to be transformative in the industry. It’s going to be fun to build the team and contribute to the company’s growth.”

In the role of Chief Marketing Officer, Bill Hobbib will tap his deep experience in growth marketing, brand-building, product and industry marketing to drive strategy and execution across all of Lakeside’s marketing functions and teams — including demand generation, product marketing, analyst relations, public relations, branding, and partner/channel marketing. Most recently, Hobbib was SVP Marketing for enterprise AI leader, DataRobot, which recently placed #36 on the prestigious Forbes 100 list. During his tenure as marketing leader, the company doubled, was recognized as a category Leader in major analyst reports, and achieved record performance in pipeline building. His previous experiences include VP Product Marketing at Bullhorn and Oracle, and VP Marketing at ExaGrid Systems.

Ethereum Miner Revenue Triples Thanks To DeFi, Bitcoin’s Falls

KEY POINTS

  • Ethereum was more profitable to mine than Bitcoin in September 2020
  • Mining revenues soared because of the excitement over decentralized finance
  • As DeFi excitement wanes, observers are watching closely the launch of Ethereum 2.0

During the month of September, revenue from mining Ethereum has eclipsed that of Bitcoin’s thanks to the excitement surrounding decentralized finance (DeFi).

According to the data from analytics firm Glassnode, miners in the Ethereum network collected 450,089 ETH worth $168.7 million. This is a 39% increase from the previous month’s total of $113 million, Cointelegraph reported.

In contrast, miners in the Bitcoin network netted only $26 million in September, which is a decrease from the $39 million they earned the previous month. This effectively makes mining Ethereum more profitable than mining Bitcoin.

The increase in miner revenue came from the community’s excitement over decentralized finance (DeFi).

Several DeFi protocols and tokens made headlines last month. YFI, the governance token of Yearn.finance reached its all-time high of $43,678 on Sept. 12. That’s twice the all-time high of Bitcoin in 2017. Other noteworthy DeFi tokens that made headlines last month include UNI, the token of automated market maker UniSwap, and Sushi, the token of on-chain protocol SushiSwap.

Uniswap made headlines for dropping at least 400 UNI to anyone who used the Uniswap protocol prior to September 1. At one point, each UNI was worth $8, which meant anyone who received 400 UNI immediately had $3,200 in one day. 

DeFi without a doubt has renewed the demand for Ethereum. As more users want to get a piece of the DeFi tokens, the price of each transaction fee has ballooned. Cointelegraph noted that at one point, a standard transaction on Ethereum hit at least $15 on average. The publication said this is good in the short-term, as the

  • Elon Musk tweeted on Monday that Starlink, an satellite-based internet initiative within his privately held company SpaceX, will “probably IPO” in “several years.”
  • Musk said that Starlink likely would wait to go public until “revenue growth is smooth & predictable” and that he would prioritize “small retail investors” when taking the business public.
  • SpaceX President and COO Gwynne Shotwell had previously floated the idea in February.
  • Starlink is aiming to start offering space-based internet services to customers this summer, but the company has already drawn criticism over its environmental impact and regulatory approval.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced in a tweet Monday that he will “probably” take SpaceX’s internet-based satellite venture, Starlink, public at some point in the future.

“We will probably IPO Starlink, but only several years in the future when revenue growth is smooth & predictable,” Musk said.

He also promised to prioritize smaller investors in a potential public offering, saying the “public market does *not* like erratic cash flow haha. I’m a huge fan of small retail investors. Will make sure they get top priority. You can hold me to it.”

Musk said last year that Starlink was an important new revenue stream for his California-based Space Exploration Technologies, or SpaceX.

Google to Take 30% of App Revenue in 2021

After some confusion—and after watching Apple take heat over its iOS App Store policies—Google is clarifying how and when it plans to take its cut of paid apps in the Google Play Store.

According to an Android Developers blog published today, any developer with an app on Google Play that has to do some “technical work” to integrate Google’s billing system will have until Sept 30, 2021 to comply. That means those developers can continue collecting direct payments from customers without having to give Google its 30% cut for the next year. That deadline will likely coincide with the release of Android 12; Android 11 rolled out widely earlier this month. Android 12 will also make it easier for developers to offer their apps on third-party app stores.

This new policy is part of a larger push on Google’s part to make its Google Play policies clearer to developers, and to continue its support for developers who also want their apps on other stores across multiple platforms. The 1-year “get out of jail free” card is really for businesses with a main physical storefront who had to move to an all-digital platform to stay afloat during the pandemic.

“We have heard feedback that our policy language could be more clear regarding which types of transactions require the use of Google Play’s billing system, and that the current language was causing confusion,” wrote Google Vice President of Product Management Sameer Samat.

Google is now requiring developers to use Google Play’s billing system for apps and downloads if the system is already integrated in the app, and developers must use that system to charge for in-app features or services. There are a few exceptions to the rules, which go into effect Jan. 20, including payment for physical
