June Edition Captain's Log
SafeMoon Security & Card
In the most recent Captain's Log SafeMoon CEO John Karony announces that SafeMoon has created patent-pending and world-leading security technology!!!! This tech will be incorporated into all of the SafeMoon fintech offerings!!
"From the beginning, I’ve taken the bold position of establishing SafeMoon first and foremost as a technology company. Our security technology is a priority from the inception of any new product or service we seek to bring to life. It remains a pillar upon which SafeMoon will grow."
You can expect to see this new security first implemented within the SafeMoon Application. Since the SafeMoon Card will be within the app, it is imperative to test this new security out with the SafeMoon app first; for this reason, the SafeMoon Card will be postponed for a little longer. Delays are inevitable in a company trying to innovate new tech.
Public test versions of this new security technology and a video explaining further details will be delivered shortly.
"What if the seed phrase (a weak link) existed and didn't exist at the same time? 🤔 #SAFEMOON #SAFEMOONARMY #CRYPTOSECURITY"

SafeMoon Customer Success
In June's Captain's Log SafeMoon CEO John Karony shares that the goal is for SafeMoon to create an above-average empathy-driven approach to SafeMoon's Customer Service for all current products and releases.
Using empathy mapping and a guide to assist when writing replies to customers.
Is it kind?
Is it empathetic?
Is it helpful?
Is it reasonable?
Is it necessary?
John also shared with us the draft of the team's current customer service flow map explaining that this is not finalized but that he wanted to show the "thinking and work that has gone into making our customer experience first class."
SafeMoon World-Class Video Production Studio
John Karony also mentions the launch of the NEW SafeMoon Studio.
"We’re also formally launching our world-class video production studios within the coming days, so watch for that additional news and ongoing content as well."
Some images were shared throughout the month of the studio progress!!
"Amazing work from the team. This is what good looks like! What Sketch has been able to achieve since his starting less than 3 months
ago is exceptional."
Jonathon "Sketch" White SafeMoon's Studio Manager had 20 years of experience as a studio manager with Goal Line Productions (the largest sound stage in Northern California) for Pro Football Hall of Fame Coach John Madden (RIP).
“There is no job too big or too small...when something needs to be done around our company, the first reaction is usually, ‘Get Sketch.’” - John Madden

Kate Porter has been working as SafeMoon's Global HR Director since October 2021 and has more than 15 years of experience working in Human Resources across many industries. Recently she shares a little about her role as SafeMoon's HR and what she and the team look for when making the decision to hire.
"So there are some individuals and full respect. If you don't understand what on Earth are HR person or practitioner actually does. But most people think it's just hiring and firing, but there's actually so much more beyond what the HR function is essentially responsible for. So it's actually about managing the full employee lifecycle. So my core focus in SafeMoon and what I'm unwaveringly unapologetic about is I'm focused on culture first technical skills, second because at the end of the day you can teach someone how to do a job. Just like I've learned how to become a powered paragliding pilot, I can learn how to become a mechanic. I could learn how to become a developer, although I'd probably not make a very good one, I can learn those technical skills. But... You can't teach someone how to be a good human, and so [this is] one of the things that's often understated as an HR function. Really looking at the culture and something that you might have heard a little bit about where we're sort of starting to talk about [when we talk about] the soul of SafeMoon, and it really captures our philosophy, so that's something that I am focused on in our team. It does start with making the right hiring decisions and looking at those incredible cultural fits and looking at shared values. It also goes down to how we reward and recognize our team members, and how we onboard our team members. There are so many things that are really just behind the scenes and hidden that can actually make or break an organization."
SafeMoon Director of HR
"I enjoy watching the development team work. Unit cohesion makes or breaks a team's effectiveness. Something Jake (SafeMoon's VP of R&D) and others at SafeMoon understand at an intimate level. When you hire/evolve leadership, what they bring to the table in terms of attitude permeates throughout their ranks. Make sure you bring on rockstars who inspire and do not be afraid to evolve the team away from others who may bring a contradiction to the culture goals you are trying to achieve. In short, teamwork makes the dream work, and it all starts with the right leadership."
Compliance Officer & Chief of Council
In episode 01 of Table32, SafeMoon's podcast, CEO John Karony mentioned many of the senior hires they've brought on have 20 years of experience in their fields. For example, SafeMoon's new compliance officer comes with 20 years of experience from the US GAO (Government Accountability Office). He also mentioned SafeMoon's in-house chief of council has worked for the Delaware supreme court.
"Sometimes we have to put a pause on certain things ya know because Tom comes out and he's like 'hey man we've got this compliance thing we need to work out before we push this product forward.' Us on the sales and operations and execution side are like 'ugh 'fun police' but they keep everything compliant they do their job and are absolutely amazing."

Fund Launch Live Articles
SafeMoon CEO John Karony published a few articles sharing with us all some of the great conversations he had while networking at the Fund Launch Live event in Las Vegas.
Interview of Dan Young
John interviewed Dan Young, entrepreneur, mentor, and CEO of Xidax Gaming PCs about the odds of success in running an impact-focused company at the recent Fund Launch Live event in Las Vegas.
Interview with Shaun Fox
John Karony conducted an interview with Shaun Fox, President and Founder FOXI related companies, CFO, and Board Member of assorted entities.
"..[I]t’s also about creating positivity because the crypto market has been traditionally plagued with FUD (fear uncertainty, doubt) issues where we have coordinated FUD attacks happen. Defamation. Campaigns slung against another crypto token, to sway people to bring them over. It’s completely backwards. They need to realize we’re all one community. It’s not Dogecoin versus Bitcoin versus SafeMoon. It’s that we all provide value to each other in different ways."
One of the statements that Karony made during the interview. "Had an amazing conversation with Shaun Fox while at Fund Launch Live. One of many amazing conversations had while SafeMoon was in attendance at the Las Vegas event"
