Bubba’s friend, Billy Kerstein joins the show to introduce his new company iBoxXZ. Billy explains to Bubba that this will be the most exciting way to shop online as iBoxXZ combines online shopping with fantasy sports.
The company mixes the shopping experience with a sporting experience, whereby shoppers have a chance to win all of the items in their shopping cart without risk by checking the fantasy sports box on the iBoxXZ website. Bubba asks Billy how he developed and designed the concept and how it works. Billy explains that they have their own fantasy game on the site and the buyer can win items.

Bubba asks Billy to explain the difference between trading and market making and why market makers are so important. Billy tells Bubba that he makes markets to provide liquidity for investors and making sure the markets remain efficient.

Billy explains that like every other online store they are competitively priced but have the added benefit of the opportunity to win all of your purchases.
