A highlight from ROLLUP: SBF vs Caroline Ellison | Sam Altman on Joe Rogan | ETH Predictions
"David look at her surrounded by all these reporters. Yeah, easy. That's intense. That's a circus very intense. So Caroline Ellison is like the only person closer to Sam Bankman freed than Gary Wang Like not only was she in charge of Alameda, but like Sam Bankman freed and her were dating they were sleeping together in 2019 They were dating in 2021 then they broke up, but they were still together Yeah, and so like, you know, very incestuous business dating sleeping together relationship Also in the Bahamas like well the business relationship They're not related though, let's just clear that they're not related. Yes. There's many other things like a lot of convoluted They're not related Bankless nation. Happy Friday morning. It is the second Friday of October or should I say flat tober David?

Continues on to week two Friday of last week before we were able to cover it Gary Wang the CTO of FTX Testified this week Caroline Ellison testified for two days straight There's a lot of juicy stuff to unpack there who days two days two days hours of testimony One day was like eight hours straight so she just kind of dumped it all about Alameda on the table Little did I know that Thai prostitutes would be involved with this story. Did you hear about this? No, okay, like oh you haven't heard about this at all. Oh, you're about to know it's fresh. No Thai prostitutes have entered the FTX arena entered the chat entered the chat the arena He's funny you say that they used to have an arena didn't they? We also have Sam Altman He is talking about crypto on Joe Rogan show. What did he say? What was it? Good. Was it bad? Did he mention world coin at all? We'll get to that too. David. What else we got Why do Americans own crypto the Fed the Fed did a survey result? So we'll talk about that. Also the vampire attack on Lido I got some takes that's at the very very end and then apparently Ryan we're giving our price predictions for ETH Why are we doing this? You didn't know that?

All right, you ready for it? You said it wasn't flat tober It's not up tober is it over does that mean it's the other direction? What's the other? Yeah, the other is the bad directions the down direction. Yeah What's big kind of accelerating to the downside a little bit started the week at 27 ,900 down four and a half percent We were asking for bigger moves last week. We kind of got them 26 ,600 is where we are this week 700. Excuse me. Okay, I guess it's better than flat We wanted I don't know. I don't know if this is what I've wanted Let's give me some charts too so I can decide what I'm looking at started the week at 1630 down 5 .5 % to 1540 1540. I didn't want that. No, I didn't I mean feels good. I bought this week Did you yeah? Yeah, that's the upside actually. It's like what a fantastic buying opportunity I've got to take about that at the end and of course, we're gonna get to price predictions, but I guess it's not off October, huh? We got we got we got um, we got half the month yet to redeem ourselves, right? Yeah. It's only the 12th Right. It's only the 12th. Yeah. Well, it was tomorrow's Friday the 13th. Congrats to all the bankless listeners Who are listening to some Friday the 13th? Everyone brace yourselves. Should we do something spooky David? Eat. Oh, dude Halloween's coming up. We're gonna have to get our costumes Anymore I'm not doing it. Are you doing? The listeners love it. We got it. Do they we got I think you and I like it Last year for a bankless listeners who are new who the the five new bankless listeners that have come in the last year Up as a crypto dick, but yeah, oh dude, I'll be SPF and you'd be Caroline. Oh My god, I know what I signed up for. I already kind of have my well I haven't got my costume, but I've got my idea Really? Yeah, I've got my idea. But is this the thing where you're not gonna tell me We haven't we haven't impressed we have not told each other this has been the deal we reveal I know okay Do we do the refill at cameras off until we hit record? All right. I'm just saying this year one. I was my crypto punk now now behind me year two I was my crypto dick, but you're three if you continue the trend, it'll be an NFT perhaps perhaps Perhaps an NFT one of your NFTs my NFTs. Yeah, I think that's my rule of thumb It's like I'm gonna scan your wallet It's for some bankless listener go find date go track down David's wallet and and let's see if we can predict It's David Hoffman, Dottie Super secret location Alright, how about the ETH Bitcoin ratio? That's it's bad. It's bad point. It's bad. I've seven seven. Yeah Yeah, I was gonna ask you to give it to me straight and you just did huh? So we're down one point five percent on the week one point five percent of the week Total crypto market cap one point zero eight trillion dollars So it's not great. Come on. Yeah, we can thanks to crackin for those charts We appreciate the charts at least make them look better. Make them go You can make it look pretty but can you make them go up? Hey crackin? Can you help us with that? All right. What are we looking at? Here we go CPI that is the consumer price index inflation Reports came in for September and guess what David and it's not dead yet No inflation is still here. There's actually a little higher than most analysts expected So it's up point four percent in the month of September. So it was not flat timber It was up timber a little bit for inflation And if you if you extrapolate that yeah, I'm working the months in the show David four point eight percent annualized That's what inflation would be starting to feel like five percent. Actually, that's annualized That's if you take, you know, one point four percent multiply that by twelve months, right? But if you look at historic data We are at three point seven percent. Okay annual so no, it's not dead. You see this bump That's a bump up. Yep. It's bumped up a little bit. Okay You know, what's interesting is you and I just did a recording with Lynn Alton So we talked about so it was fantastic guys. That episode is coming out soon. Actually, I still have her book right here broken money David Anyway the contents of that book is in the episode and it's absolutely fantastic But one of her takes was what if inflation just becomes like background noise? For us, you know high background noise Well, I mean inflation is always background noise But but what you're what you mean to say is like it's the volume is increasing still background but higher I'm what I'm saying is like what if we don't go back to the 90s? What if we don't go back to the 2000s, right? What if what if now it's just a sustained like four five six seven percent spikes up maybe tiny spikes Sounds like what if it's in the background and you know Lynn's comment was that's how a lot of countries live right now I'm talking about kind of in Western developed nations right in Europe What if what if this is the new normal in Canada in Australia? What if this is the new normal in the u .s? What if this is the new normal she she mentioned she was just in Egypt 30 % annual inflation Okay, and people just live like that. And so what do you do when you're in a high inflation type of environment? Well, you tend to spend more you you might want to you might be willing to take out more cheap debt if you can find It in fiat that's nominated in fiat. You might want to hold your money in other things You know real estate in a lot of emerging countries that don't have strong capital markets like the u .s Stocks you for know, Western developed countries like the u .s. Maybe crypto Maybe you start to think a bit more short -term about your spending habits as well This is very interesting. If this is what the next decade holds for us is kind of sustained high inflation rates What do you think about this? I was talking to Mariano Conte who lives in Argentina who bought a car maybe a few years ago and he got a 20 % interest loan in Argentine peso, so he's paying 20 % interest terrible loan for for a car loan for a one -year car loan shark It's yeah, it's terrible His first pain but Mariano Conte like lives on dollars like most people who do in lieu who live in Argentina So his first his first loan payment that he had to pay to pay back The loan was most people who can I would say in Argentina live on dollars. Yes Dollars are like most everyone in Argentina. Almost everyone has a person that exchange dollars with so it's not just really Oh, yeah. No, it's the dollarization of Argentina is like very well permeated. It's not like an elite, but it's all great Martin, right? It's it's all like it's all great market and it's like so totally social culturally accepted, right? Everyone has like the guy that comes and swaps currency your dollar guy. Yeah your dollar guy. Yeah, it's not like it It's not like an elite only thing. It's just like everyone. Anyways, his first car loan payment was $1 ,200 so he converted $1 ,200 into pesos to pay his car loan and his most recent car loan Payment he told me was five hundred and eighty dollars because it only took five hundred and eighty dollars To acquire the same amount of peso that he would need to pay back his car loan inside So like when he takes like a 20 % peso 20 % interest rate loan on a one -year loan, which is a dumb loan It actually works out because it's inflating so goddamn much. It doesn't matter Do you know an elder millennial flex? It's just be like, yeah, I got a mortgage at 3 % Yeah, like that's a huge like that what a gift that was I can't get that nowadays and you know You're you're basically making money on that because inflation is higher than your interest payments So the Fed has an idea on why people are buying crypto and it's not necessarily inflation So apparently David every couple years the Fed puts out a survey on why people buy crypto they map Must be interested. I don't know. I don't know if they're worried or just Generally interested at least since 2019 First guess what percentage of Americans the Fed says owns crypto. What do you think? Well coin base said 50 million and there's like over 300 million Citizens so like yes, like what was that number like 20 % quick math 20 % percent one five kind of thing Yeah, the Fed reports less than that. Okay, so this is a survey of about 400 Americans and they say eight point one percent in their survey of Americans that own crypto Which is which is not nothing. It's not coin base numbers, but interestingly enough. This was up from one point nine percent Oh 2019 2019 one point nine percent now eight point one percent That number it's a great. It's a great like that's a great multiple, right? Little 4x for us and I think these numbers are actually 2022 numbers So, you know, although no one's really buying 20 20 Probably salad But one of the questions they asked in this survey is why do you guys why are you guys buying crypto? Why do you own crypto? All right, you want to know the number one reason why 67 % of Americans own crypto David? You want to guess what that is number go up? Yeah, it's number go up as an investment as an investment was number one with 67 % number two was curiosity about the tech was 21. I'm in it for the tech Those are the ones that are down on their bags They're dissident for the tech and then other interestingly enough was 10 % You know, what got no mentions was remittances payments for goods and services So no one using this as a payment in their in their study or number the last one most Dishardingly almost at zero because they don't trust banks. Well, duh, you don't as an American That's by crypto for remittances Well, okay, I guess if you're an American citizen and you are sending crypto abroad Then I guess I guess you are if you're like a if you have family abroad if you've recently immigrated that sort of thing You know, you know, maybe maybe you're probably doing like stable coins, I would expect yeah, but the big use case of Percent is investment is never to go up. So Anything surprising there for you David? No that that checks out. Well, I know you're in it for the tech man. So I'm in it for the means I Here's a number that's all I got at this point in the market Christ. Ooh, okay. Here's a number that is straight down It looks scary. Is this a good chart or a bad chart? We're looking at this. Oh the validator queue Okay, so this is okay now we're talking about crypto Okay, this is aetherium proof of sake validator queue, okay, so quick rock through memory lane We enabled withdrawals the supply of ether and the beacon chain went down because people withdraw and then the rate of inflows into the beacon chain like Accelerated bigly like 3x in chain. It's just people who want to state their state the proof of sake Yeah, there was like a 45 day wait queue to get into The beacon chain to stake their ETH a while ago We have finally approached an equilibrium that acceleration of people Depositing into proof of stake has finally started to come down and so it's currently less than 24 hours to deposit your ETH into the beacon chain staking contract and get your ether staking and so this is this is we this inevitably was going to This was never going to be up only of course, like, you know, not all ether is going to stake And so we are have found the equilibrium that equilibrium is around 27 .3 million staked ether that's 22 .7 % which is about the 20 to 30 percent range that we predicted So about three point five percent APR is about what the market wants And if that goes down then people won't want it anymore and that this is the equilibrium that we have finally arrived at cool It is cool a bullish bearish. I don't know straight neutral as a staker I was um, you know wanting to keep that number above three percent, right? Certainly, right? So I didn't want the queue to stay full and the demand to be kind of perpetual Yes, and so as a state you are not to see that number good. You are not alone Everyone else should unstake please I think it one reason what you know, why was it? Why did it get so high because 45 days is pretty high, right? All these people want to get in the in the beacon chain club and stake their ETH I think it was really because once withdrawals went through post Shanghai people just saw like lower risk I mean, maybe I'm extrapolating but that was true for me. I was like, okay. It was so obvious I was arguing with Bitcoin maxis around like as soon as withdrawals are enabled a theorem is gonna collapse because everyone's gonna unstake I'm like, you're an idiot. That's not how you do. Why do that to yourself, David? Why do you still argue with Bitcoin maxis, huh? People are wrong on the internet Ryan. Oh, okay. You can't sleep Yeah, can't sleep. Someone's wrong on the internet Token terminal speaking of Bitcoin You want to get you all your all your angry takes out about Bitcoin friend tech just surpassed Bitcoin in the 30 -day Fees, okay friend tech is making more money Selling each other as friends friend shares. Sorry, they don't call them that friends keys friend keys Then Bitcoin is making selling block space. That's what this means. That's a little rich bearish So not even a layer one app on a theorem a layer two app is making more money than Bitcoin is Yeah, Sam. I'm paying ether very little for security because it's on layer two friend tech revenue 28 million Bitcoin revenue 26 million over the last 30 days eth revenue 90 million Tron revenue 87 million the Tron revenue is actually such a dark horse Turns out Tron has very similar economics to aetherium and it's it's super duper used for payments And it's it you should be you should be careful saying Tron. Okay, because That old Justin Sun guy is kind of litigious. So you should be careful what you say about him We're gonna open up the store. Okay, can you can you open up the article then if we're gonna open up this article the Okay, Bankless released a Tron bull versus bear case Inspired by I think for me it was inspired. I didn't write it. It was inspired by Paul Enya's Article about the economics of Tron and how they're like their mimics ether and they're kind of bullish. And so we published this article Jack wrote a great great article wrote the bear case and then the bull case and so there was a When talking about the bull case for Tron is already super dubious. Why is it dubious? Well, cuz the founder Justin Sun I in my opinion is a morally bankrupt character And we alluded, you know, I is this my opinion It's my opinion and you could say that we just the article gave that disclaimer is like hey the bear case for Tron Is that you know, Justin Sun is dubious. He's there's allegations of fraud and then The author and the newsletter editor of Bankless got pulled into a telegram group with Justin Sun's lawyers for Tron and They submitted a cease -and -desist We're talking shit and they threatened legal action Against Bankless for publishing by the way, this wasn't just the bear case It was the the bear case and the bull because we just actually said there is kind of a weird bull case about Tron Which is that it's generating a lot of fees and it's burning those transactions Okay, it's completely centralized. It's completely part of the Justin some Sun Empire, but it is actually producing revenue number two behind a theorem yeah, and we got sent this cease -and -desist from Tron and We talked to our lawyers Here's what they say wild Assertations like Tron's primary function is to enrich its insiders and participating in the zero -sum game is a mistake that you will invariably Regret Yeah, if you want to live on a chain rot with fraud and deception then Tron might just be the one for you God, I'm so proud. That's what that's what that's what that's Jack put in the post But but yeah, the Lord Tron's lawyers disputed that they didn't like that. They sent us a cease -and -desist We talked to our lawyers and they said you look you got First Amendment, right? You get to say whatever you want Yeah, yeah, but do you really want to get in a pissing match with Justin Sun? We said, yeah We already shipped the newsletter so we'll just strip that from yeah So we have stripped it from the record because I don't want to go up against a billionaire who's gotten way more money than me Unless he's gonna be a total bully and then right like and then we might talk about it on the podcast. Yeah Just our opinions It's just my opinion Not anyone else's that Justin Sun is morally bankrupt and probably so are the lawyers who work for him There you go. Just an opinion just an opinion Okay, so back to the fees though We're talking about Bitcoin fees 30 days. I mean, I don't know David the quick take is I don't think this is great for Bitcoin and You know, we've said this for a long time since 2019 when it was a lot less possibly popular to talk about the sustainability or the lack of sustainability of bitcoins right monetary schedule and model and You know, it's it's starting to pop up again, it's really bad I'm looking at the graph that you have on the screen Which is just the token terminal like graph of who's making money a theory number one Tron number two bullish Lido number three friend taking before Bitcoin you know swap Where's Solana? There's 25 apps on here. No Solana doesn't make money do not not that not the traditional way It doesn't even make the top 25 and fees So it doesn't doesn't doesn't but you know everyone values the bull case for Solana is fees That's what they say. They make it up in volume. Like I think I think I actually make a volume I think the bull case for Solana is a fees but MEV it's sound you got to sell the block ordering at some point I maybe it's gonna be less the user fees. Yeah, it's MEV extraction for sure. Not our rent extractors their rent extractors Hey semantics You know what there we promised the last thing here is guys private warfare coming out Price predictions though. Okay. Okay. So this was a price prediction from Standard Chartered Bank Don't know who's gonna charter my favorite bank that your favorite bank. Yeah. Uh -huh. Okay. Well, they're analyzing ether and according their analysts ether could reach $8 ,000 by the end of 2026 okay, so but that's not their top side the top side at the end of the journey The long -term range is twenty six thousand to thirty five thousand. Okay. All right now we're talking Yep, and I don't know what timeline that is, but that's it's like in the fullness ten years out It sounds like yeah, something like this final Yeah, the equilibrium so I don't know what like backs their analysts But I know David you have some takes on the price of youth If you don't at this point in the episode when I teased you just like 15 minutes ago To get your take ready because I'm gonna ask you what do you think the top is for this bull cycle for ether? What's the top call? Give me a number call the top for the next cycle. I mean my gut my heart says 15k Okay, okay. So we had 10k was the mean price last bull market and we got to Four thousand eight hundred which in logarithmic terms actually isn't terribly far off from that But you know still a 2x or away from the top so increasing last cycles call from 10k to 15k I think is appropriate so And what what do you think are you willing to time box that you know, are we talking 20 24 25 26? longer Assuming four -year cycles play out then yeah end of 26 by the end of 26 What year is it? 23 15k by 20 soon. That's what you're saying 15k in two years who is starting to get real specific That's making me a little scared. There you go Those are some specific numbers in times which I am just pulling from my absolute. You know what? I don't know I mean, you know, that's only double what standard chartered bank said. So yeah company here All right. Well, wait, wait, what's your number? You say you want to know my number? Yeah I was gonna go twelve thousand five hundred. Okay. Okay, but in honor of Friday the 13th 13 ,000 13 ,000 This is me saying that's the top. That's the eve price top for next cycle 13 ,000 I'm just a little bit under 15 ,000. My rationale is we're looking at it like I was like David's too bullish Yeah rational My is take anything David says and then discount it by 20 % because that's that's what we do in this podcast Anyway, those are our numbers those are our numbers David what we have coming up in the episode kind of next SPF trial week To Gary Wang we got to talk about him because he was last week But we didn't cover him because he was on Friday Caroline Ellison this week kind of a climactic cinematic moment in the trial There's a lot to cover including Ryan don't forget about the Thai prostitutes got to talk about them Wow, you're weirdly excited about that part. I don't know Also crypto is playing a role in the story of the Israel Hamas conflict So we'll discuss the details there And of course, there's always just gonna be the regular old news of the week some new chains coming to polygon Remember ape coin now ape chains We'll talk about that far casters going permissionless all this stuff and more but first I'm going to talk about these fantastic sponsors that make this show possible Especially kraken our preferred exchange for crypto in 2023 if you're not having account with kraken and consider clicking the link in the show notes to get started with kraken today Kraken pro has easily become the best crypto trading platform in the industry the place I used to check the charts and the crypto prices even when I'm not looking to place a trade on kraken pro You'll have access to advanced charting tools real -time market data and lightning -fast trade execution all inside their spiffy new modular interface Kraken's new customizable modular layout lets you tailor your trading experience to suit your needs pick and choose your favorite Modules and place them anywhere you want in your screen with kraken pro You have that power whether you are a seasoned pro or just starting out join thousands of traders who trust kraken pro for their crypto Trading needs visit pro .kraken .com to get started today Arbitrum is accelerating the web 3 landscape with a suite of secure Ethereum scaling solutions hundreds of projects have already deployed on arbitrum 1 with flourishing DeFi and NFT ecosystems Arbitrum Nova is quickly becoming a web 3 gaming hub and social dapps like reddit are also calling arbitrum home and now Arbitrum orbit allows you to use arbitrum secure scaling technology to build your own layer 3 giving you access to interoperable Customizable permissions with dedicated throughput whether you are a developer enterprise or user arbitrum orbit lets you take your project to new heights All of these technologies leverage the security and decentralization of aetherium and provide a builder experience That's intuitive familiar and fully EVM compatible faster transaction speeds and significantly lower gas fees So visit arbitrum .io where you can join the community dive into the developer docs bridge your assets and start building your first app with arbitrum Experience web 3 development the way it was always meant to be secure fast cheap and friction -free Here it is SBF trial.
"28 million" Discussed on Northwest Newsradio
"28 million American borrowers are rebalancing their budgets to once again take into account loan student payments that had been paused during the pandemic. ABC's Elizabeth Schulze has just one story. Borrowers like Sarah Wood in Denver now required to make payments on their student debt this month for the first time in more than three years. That relief during that pause period was huge. With her $440 monthly bills due again, Wood says she'll cut her spending and hold off on saving for her twin daughters college education. You kind of have to figure out where to skip and save. The average federal student loan borrower owes more than $37 ,000 in debt payments averaging between $200 and $300 a month. California Gavin Governor Newsom announcing his choice to replace Senator Dianne Feinstein who died last week. After news out leaked on Sunday night, Governor Gavin Newsom made the announcement Lafonza Butler will fill Dianne Senate seat until next year's election.

A highlight from BIG CRYPTO NEWS! XRP LEDGER NFTS SURGE! POKEMON NFTS POLYGON MATIC, $115 MILLION CRYPTO FUNDING
"Welcome back to the Thinking Crypto Podcast, your home for cryptocurrency news and interviews. If you are new here, please hit that subscribe button as well as the thumbs up button and leave a comment below. If you're listening on a podcast platform such as Spotify, Apple or Google, please leave a five star rating and review. It supports the podcast and it doesn't cost you anything. Well, folks, we've got some very big news around NFTs and I know some of you may not like NFTs or you've been burnt by NFT rug pulls, but NFTs are going to be part of the token economy that we are headed to. We've been talking about this for years and it's not so much the artwork or random Twitter users or crypto YouTubers and so we're launching NFTs, but rather big brands using NFTs. They already have a mass following, a lot of consumers and customers and so forth, and they are unlocking or helping you to unlock experiences and include exclusivity for certain services and products with NFTs. So here's the headline. Got to catch them all. Official Pokemon NFT trading cards take Polygon Matic by storm. So Pokemon obviously has a huge following to game the cards and much more. So the transition to the blockchain, the tokenization of these cards absolutely makes sense. People already trust the brand, right? They have established themselves as not being a scam. So NFTs here make sense. And once again, when this is pulled into the movie industry, the music industry and concerts and so forth, it's going to unlock a lot of unique experiences. And of course, there's a secondary market that you can resell these NFTs. And obviously I'm bullish on Polygon folks as the layer two scaling solution for Ethereum. So official Pokemon cards in the form of non fungible tokens are being minted over Polygon, taking the layer two scaling solution by storm in a lengthy thread on the social media platform X digital asset consultant, Sammy. ETH says that digital card boosters of the popular Nintendo franchise are being opened over the Matic blockchain and have already sold out by the hundreds. Some of them seeing 10 X increases in price, according to Sammy. ETH, the booster packs are randomized and initially cost $5 each. Some of them containing high grade cards that could be worth about $500. Here's a quote. Each pack costs $5 and had a chance of receiving one of any of the pre -disclosed cards. The randomization is executed fully on chain for transparency. Possible cards include PSA nine graded cards from 2000 with valuations of $500. So essentially folks, if you know anything about collectibles and trading cards and look, I, I collected, uh, Pokemon cards back in the nineties. And I have some, I think they're probably worth some money. That whole trading process and grading and, you know, getting the exclusive cards is going on chain folks. So I hope you see what's happening here. The of evolution many markets and the move into the being fully immersed on the internet and, you know, with a digital experience. So this is very bullish and you may say, well, I, Tony, I don't care anything about Pokemon who cares, right? Who cares about squirtle and Charizard and Pikachu. I get it. Look, I don't still, you know, follow Pokemon. I still have the cards that I hope maybe it will be worth some money as time goes by. But the point is it's going on the blockchain of the tokens. Many of you hold that's utility, and this is a big brand. This is a trusted brand, right folks. So this is what I'm looking for from an adoption standpoint. And it's one of the reasons specifically around polygon and Matic that I hold the Matic token, because I see polygon getting a lot of adoption from big brands. So to purchase the packs, investors can use either the stable coin USDC or a credit card. However, Sammy dot ETH says the packs now have a floor of around $50. Here's a quote to buy the packs. You can either use USDC on polygon or pay with a credit card. Anybody with zero crypto knowledge could acquire the packs. The floor is now $50, a solid 10 X from the mint price. Folks, this is bullish. In my opinion, the adoption, once again, not the NFTs specifically or their topics, but the big established brands minting NFTs and different things on the blockchain. That is what I'm looking for as an investor in these tokens. Now here's another example. The XRP ledger just set a brand new record when it comes to NFTs. So many of you may recall the XLS 20 update that rolled out about a year ago in October of 2022, which allowed the ability for NFTs to be fully functional on the XRP ledger. And we've seen a lot of adoption. So XLS 20 added the native non fungible tokens to the XRPL, allowing any XRP ledger account to generate own and trade an NFT on the XRP ledger. The standard in introduces native non fungible tokens to represent assets that are each unique, as well as opportunities to enumerate transfer and keep such tokens. Since the introduction of the NFT capabilities, the blockchain has grown dramatically and NFT activity continues to expand. According to Bithom statistics, 1 .9 million NFTs have been minted since the launch of XLS 20. A total of 29 ,584 accounts currently own over 1 .65 million NFTs. The amount of over 1 .28 million NFTs was transferred or sold. On its official X account, Bithom reported these statistics in celebration of NFT day. And here's the tweet with all the statistics. So really great to see this is happening on the XRP ledger. Obviously, it's happening on multiple blockchains. But folks, whether once again, you hold any NFTs or not, this is part of the future. But once again, we want quality, not bullshit, right? Because there have been a lot of scams, a lot of issues. The NFTs actually have to have utility. And that's the key to unlock exclusivity, additional experiences and much more. Now, quick word from our sponsor, and that is Uphold, which makes crypto investing easy. I've been using Uphold since 2018. They have 10 plus million users, 250 plus cryptocurrencies, and they're available in 150 countries. You can also trade precious metals and 37 national fiat currencies on this platform. You can easily swap between all three. So if you'd like to learn more about Uphold, please visit the link in the description. Now we have some very big news around crypto funding. And I like to look at this news because it gives me an insight into what investors are investing in, who's raising capital, maybe some of the TradFi incumbents coming in, right? And this is important news because that capital will be deployed in the market. So Blockworks, they usually do a weekly crypto funding roundup. They said crypto funding startups raise $115 million across gaming, custody and institutional services.
A highlight from 1254. SEC WARS! | Gensler vs Peirce, Mila Kunis NFTs, & Star Wars
"All right, so we're going to get into the SEC and their war on the NFT market and their recent filing, of course, against Stoner Cats. We'll break all that down for you. But more importantly, we'll get into more of a depth of why these projects are where they are and really what could be done about this for the future, because there's a lot of implications here. My name is Paul Berra. Welcome back into Tech Path. Before we get started, I want to thank our sponsor, and that is iTrustCapital. If you guys want to do long -term holding of your crypto assets and you want to put it in a crypto IRA, you can do that with iTrustCapital. And there's a couple of ways you can do it. Start a new one, or you can actually transfer in one of your current IRAs. So it's very easy to do. All you have to do is sign up, and you can check the platform out just by going over to iTrustCapital and seeing what they've got to offer for your particular situation. Very easy. Use our link down below. It's going to give you a $100 funding reward to get started. All right. So let's get into it today. I want to lead off with a few clips here. We'll go into a lot of lineup here, I think, that will frame up exactly what happened during the Stutter Cats. And this is very important, because you may be a brand. You may be someone that's interested in the FT market. This is something you want to watch. You don't want to miss this one. So let's go to the first clip. We were having dinner with Gary Vee at the time, and they were talking about crypto. And I was like, this is dumb. And then as the years went on, I was like, I think I'm on the wrong side of history on this one. I think I was wrong. Okay. So interesting position. I think some people kind of look at it that way. But let's continue on telling this story, because there's a lot here that breaks out where the future is going to go with this. Listen in. Hey, babe. Yeah? What's blockchain? It's like what information is stored on. So like, it's, you know, what information is stored on? Hey, babe. Yeah? What's decentralization? Oh, there's not one person in charge of anything. So it's everybody keeps everybody else in check. Hey, babe. Yeah? What's Ethereum? So Ethereum is a general purpose blockchain. All right. We had to put that one in there. What a great, great piece that is where Mila learns a little bit more about Ethereum. Let's go over to now that she's understood what's happened and how this market is really a differentiator for pretty much everyone, she wants to do something about it. So listen in. And I'll tell you why. Like all jokes aside is because it made me nervous and I felt like it was a very masculine area. Like everybody that I knew that knew anything about it at the time was always a man and I found it to be really empowering. And so through the pandemic created a form of entertainment called stoner cats that we're releasing in a couple of weeks that is an NFT and you can buy such stoner cats. And then that is your token to then watch a five minute long piece of entertainment. It sounds like a cool idea. And I know you've had experience in animation and comedy. So we have a, I think we have a picture here of the stoner cats. This is yep. And it's really cool guys, because I'll tell you, in the very, yeah, so here's the thing on it. I was going to say cats just sit around anyway. Well guess what happens when they get stoned. The people that we got to do the voice is everybody just did it because they thought that it was different and fun and we all wanted to do it for the right reasons. And it brings ownership of content back to the artist and cuts out the middleman. And so if people like the NFTs and they buy it as tokens, then more shows will be made. Look at those eyes. I mean, come on. Come on. All right, so I want to play another clip that goes into how she integrated this into Hollywood. Listen it. So Mila was surprised by how many people she was able to recruit to take part in the new medium, including Jane Fonda. We were like, who can be Mrs. Stoner? Like we should get somebody like Jane Fonda. It would be so amazing to get somebody like Jane Fonda. And I was like, OK, let's just call Jane Fonda. I know this is an incredibly weird request. Would you ever do something like this? And they're like, I don't quite get it, so I'm going to say yes. It's just different and everybody wants ownership of content to go to the artist and this kind of allows that to happen. So again, really kind of hitting on the thread that I think everybody understands what decentralization and NFTs and in general, smart contracts really mean for the future of content and they hit it on the head. There was the OpenSea launch, of course, fully sold out and it just happened in like seconds. It was a pretty fast and very successful run. The key here is that if you look at the data, this comes back from a tweet back in 2021 when they launched this. There was the Ethereum gas fees for this, so you can see it had an immediate impact on ETH in general. And overall, the gas fees were kind of a thing and so much so that we actually had a song written about this. So listen in. This is a story of superfood, how he tried to get a stoner cat, and with a snafu in the gas limit, he lost $13 ,000 right on fire. Gas fees. Now, this is back in the era of when we weren't really seeing the advancements in blockchain that we are now, especially in smart contracts, obviously gas fees were part of this. This is, I think, has really started to be evolved over the last 12 months with just so much innovation in the space. But I think this also caught a little bit of the SEC's eye, possibly. There could be some theory behind that. But the interesting thing was is just how fast this thing sold out. Listen to this clip. Thank you so much for honestly believing in this entire crazy concept and idea and being a part of it, because it has been a whirlwind and we're so excited to continue down this journey with all of you. We're so sorry that we broke Ethereum, but also, fuck it. Sorry the gas fees were high, I tried to waive them, it clearly didn't work, I'll work better, I'll try harder. We're so excited, genuinely shocked at any and all of this, and just want to say hi and thank you and welcome to the team. We're excited for you to join the team. Thanks for being aboard. So again, this is innovation at work. It's how startups go out. And I think from a content creator standpoint there, this is the right kind of vision of what Hollywood most likely is going to be doing in the future, provided they can get past these kind of scenarios that the SEC is placing on them. Let's go to the next clip, which just shows you a trailer just how much work was put in this project. I have regrets. Run, Chuckie boy, run! Run! What Ow! in the poltergeist? Fuck! All right, so many episodes lined up on this, their friends, kind of everybody got together, had watch parties. This became a bit of a community, and I think that's again another big part of how fans work, especially when you look at content and how that gets released in Hollywood today. As for Stoner Cats, they actually released all six episodes, so you can kind of see the website here, scrolling through all the episodes, all delivered as promised. And that was really the goal, and I think that's the position of where all of this starts to stem from, especially in the position of what's happening with the SEC. If you scroll further down on the website, I thought this was cool. Website Stoner Cats content will be available in perpetuity using decentralized hosting and archiving service R -weaves. So again, they were utilizing literally from the beginning all the way through the blockchain to deliver this kind of content. These are the kind of technologies that will start to shift content creation. You often wonder why and what is driving the SEC's decisions on this. If you go over to the SEC, we'll get into the actual complaint here. So they charged creator of Stoner Cats' web series on registry offering securities. I'll read a few things from it. Raised approximately $8 million from investors to finance the animated web series called Stoner Cats. $800 each, selling out 35 minutes. Marketing campaigns highlighted specific benefits from owning, including option for owners to resell on secondary market. Marketing campaign on the Stoner Cats team emphasized its expertise, and Hollywood producers agreed, leading investors to expect profits. That's a reach. Configured the Stoner Cats NFTs to provide a Stoner Cat 2, a 2 .5 % royalty, which is happening on the aftermarket. Leading purchases to spend more than $20 million in at least 10 ,000 transactions. So you had $20 million plus the $8 million, about $28 million, almost $30 million on an animated series that was done based off of blockchain. And remember, this just as a side project, so very successful. Further into the complaint right here, cease and desist order to pay a civil penalty of $1 million. The order establishes a fair fund to return the monies that injured investors. I love how they said that. Injured investors. Paid to purchase NFTs. I also agreed to destroy all of the NFTs in its position. This is a problem because, again, this is almost anything you can imagine that would go in the secondary market. I mean, comics, collectibles, luxury goods, anything and everything could be a security. So I think this continues on its hypocrisy of where this is going. Here was a course Hester Peirce and you, Ada, coming in and saying they didn't necessarily agree. Let me zoom in on this right here. Lacks any meaningful limiting principle. Creativity would wither in the shadow of legal ambiguity. She deserves clear guidance in talking about Kunis here. The fact that money is involved does not transform into NFTs, into securities. The enforcement action involves activity that we believe constitutes a fan crown funding, which is a common phenomenon used all the time. Soner Can's NFTs are not a different from Star Wars collectibles in the 1970s. So again, big problem. Toy company Kenner sold early bird certificates, redeemable for future Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia and R2 -D2 action figures. So you had membership scenarios that played into this and the sales of those certificates helped build a diehard community around Star Wars.
A highlight from 1222. GALA Moving Into XRP Ledger
"All right, so today we're going to dive into XRP, some of the updates on XRP Ledger, and also maybe some analysis on some interesting partners that may be brewing by the name of Gala. Yes, you heard that right. It's going to be a good one. My name is Paul Beran. Welcome back into Tech Path. This is going to be a good topic today. I think you guys will like it. We're going to break down a few things that will give you some indication as to maybe could there be a partnership here brewing around Gala and XRP. Let me kind of explain. We'll jump into a first topic here. More assets, greater interoperability, now coming to XRP Ledger thanks to a new partnership. Couple of things they've highlighted here. GateHub, largest Ledger gateway provider, XRPL Labs, the creators of the Zoom wallet, Now I've announced a strategic partnership. This alliance, of course, will aim to enhance XRPL, the ecosystem, by introducing a few more assets and facilitating effortless value transfer between XRP and other prominent networks. This is good news for the Ledger in general. Further in the article here, it's talking about adoption and interoperability. Partnership aims to promote the adoption of XRP and other digital assets within the DeFi ecosystem. Also planning to enhance interoperability across various blockchains. Again, this would be another big win for XRP if this does start to gain traction. European users have an exclusive benefit of using the Instant Card, which can do a top -up method. I'll explain that here in a second. All right, so let me get into a little bit here around the GateHub joining forces with XRPL and the potential for an on -off ramp for 14 assets. Let me kind of just buzz down to this, showing a little bit about the Zoom wallet. These are the added 14 assets. Now most of them are, you know, you would recognize these assets. You've got Litecoin, Bitcoin, ETH in there, et cetera. But then you have Gala right here, the only Web3 token that is in this array. In fact, the only gaming token. So is there something brewing here with Gala and XRP? That'll be a good analysis as we break this down for you guys. I want to go over to a clip real quick. This is going to be a good one. It talks about how XRP is going to integrate with these kinds of assets. Listen in. XRP Labs, the developers of the Zoom wallet, with the cooperation of Ripple's developers, created Hooks. This way developers can still be creative at the same time as enjoying the many perks of building on the XRP ledger. For % 99 of all smart contract use cases we see today, you can do exactly what you do with EVM, but then with Hooks. And I think Hooks are more efficient in many ways. Some screenshots, preview of what the Hook store is going to look like right now on my personal Twitter. Like I said, I think that's massive. I'm not aware of anything that works like that. That's stepping up the game a lot. All right. So if you're not aware, smart contracts, this is kind of the equivalent, whether you like it or you don't like it or agree with it or not, that XRP has initiated in terms of an alternative to, say, smart contracts. Some of the things that they kind of boast here, no installs, WebAssembly -based, this is a good advantage, built -in code, hinting docs, save and share on Gist, etc. Then you can deploy in -browser. Those are other aspects that, you know, it's kind of like Webhooks if you think about Webhooks work very similarly to almost like these little small connections that help identify and bring in aspects of what a smart contract would do is what they're trying to do. So a very interesting component. Whether this is something that will make a big difference is the real question. All right. So I want to go to another clip on Evernote. This will help kind of put this puzzle together a little bit. Listen in. This is all in place. This is the XRP Ledger grown up. It is the ability to genuinely say XRP Ledger can compete with Ethereum, right? It would be a lie today to say that it can because it doesn't have smart contracts, but with this new sidechain and these new amendments and with Evernote, genuinely, you are pretty much only limited by your ability to think. So when Wita says that the hooks is a lightweight smart contract, it does about 90 % of what the EVM is capable of doing. But when you add Evernote on top of that, it can do maybe equal or even more possibly than what an EVM chain can do. So that's exciting for the XRP Ledger and it's exciting for the XRP holders. All right. So as you can see, I mean, there's some technology brewing there with Ripple and some of this, of course, does have to go against really what's happening over on the Ethereum chain. So you kind of have to look at the potential of the technology, whether you think Evernote and the combination of hooks can really become something that would be compatible or I shouldn't say compatible, but competitive to EVM, I think is the bigger question here. A couple of things I want to hit on over here as well. They're just kind of showing the launch here of the roadmap. This is talking about a launch around October through December. So here we are in fourth quarter, could be, but, you know, they're still kind of playing a little bit of tongue in cheek there with that. So I don't know. This will be interesting to see. This next point right here is just talking about the Zoom wallet and as soon your Zoom wallet and tangent cards can be ordered with prepaid XRP. You know, this will be interesting because if you haven't seen this, this essentially gives you the ability to add almost any kind of custom card to a wallet like this, which like say a tangent wallet, which will be able to maybe connect into bigger brands, other blockchains, other NFT projects, et cetera, that could kind of play into this. Another aspect that I wanted to show here, this is kind of interesting because you're talking about a major event that could be happening in the fourth quarter here. And that is if we got an XRP listing on Robinhood, what it could mean for crypto. Pretty big rumors, of course, still a rumor here is that Robinhood might list XRP by the close of 2023. I think, of course, we already know with Robinhood, they've had so much movement just by, you know, the trading levels on Doge. I think the community, when you think about the communities that are out there, the XRP community would be a massive one for Robinhood to take on and kind of move to that next level. Now, with that being in the potential, now you go over and look at this. And this is Gala Games who announced that it's going to shift its NFT game items from the Ethereum network to the Gala chain. Now, you guys remember this. This would allow gamers to use NFTs without paying any fees. Now, granted, that was kind of the goal. I would argue that that has not necessarily been the case in terms of happening. There's always going to be a scenario on fees and I think this is going to be the challenge. And since that has happened, if you remember, Gala right now, if you just look at CoinMarketCap, still, even though it's migrated to this new contract address from the old contract address, we're still not getting all the data. So that's the other scenario. So essentially, the Gala token is almost unattainable, at least in the new format. This is where it used to be listed. So this would be an interesting listing if, in fact, it went on to the XRP Ledger. So very interesting aspect. Now, if you look at the XRP Ledger, these are all the tokens. So here's a rundown, obviously XRP leading the way, but you've got BitStrap in there, or BitStamp in there, Core, Solo, and so on. But you'll notice that there's not a lot of volume in any of these, all right? With that being the case, Gala would have significant volume within the Ledger. Could become one of the major tokens on this. Could this be one of the scenarios that is actually afoot here? If you take a look at that, and then you go look at Ripple trying to do some things around NFTs and bringing them onto the Ledger, meaning they've got a lot of different creator programs. This was a creator fund, let me kind of zoom in on that for you guys. This was a fund of $250 million commitment to help creators bring their NFT projects onto the market. And again, this might be another place for Gala to go after a large amount of funding and assistance that could be based into a chain that has such a dynamic ecosystem, and better yet, has one of the biggest social ecosystems out there. And when you think about games, NFTs, one of the weaknesses of XRP, I know the XRP fans will hate this when I say it, is the NFT side. They just don't have the vibrant community. But they do have a vibrant community overall. So if you kind of blend the mix of what's happening with Gala, which Gala has a very vibrant community, versus and with the XRP community, boom, you might have some magic that could happen here. Just as an example, I'll show you guys some of that in a little bit. But these are some of the other things that are happening right now with Ripple, and these are XRPL grants. So grants that are also, six applications now closed. We've got another one that's going to open in August. So opportunity another here, again, to build within the XRP ledger. And as I said, if you look at the ecosystems out there, you've got them right here, Top Lock Jank Games with highest engaged social communities, Gala right there, number three, $3 .28 million. That's significant. And this is one of the reasons that we've been a big fan of Gala in the past. What they've done here recently, sure, there's been some, you know, go back and watch our video on this breakdown. But, you know, it's just it's almost as though they've lost their way a little bit, but maybe there is an opportunity of where they could kind of come out of the forest here on maybe some project alignment with things like XRP Ledger. So I don't know if this is going to be the case. This is still speculation, high speculation as to how some of these projects are going to move forward. Where are the right partnerships? What are some of the things that could happen to kind of help projects really accelerate? And if you look at the chains that have been, one, really a pent up demand for, like Ripple and XRP, because of what's happened with the SEC over the past several years, and you look at other chains, you know that they're not necessarily going to go the EVM route because they've kind of already migrated away from that. So is there an alternative strategy that could be in the mix? Love to get your opinion on this. We always love to get you guys' feedback. Drop some comments down below. You'll probably hit me on Twitter crazy on just ideas of how this might work. But this is how speculation works. What you're trying to understand is how this technology is going to move to the next level. Who are the partners going to be? If you can start to outguess what's happening based on what we see in the marketplace, there's where you're going to end up really getting in on some early alpha.

50 million people trapped in 'modern slavery' — report - DW (English)
"Account for over half the estimated 50 million people living in modern slavery. The reports by a rights group found that 6 members of the group of 20 richest nations have the largest number of people in modern slavery.

under And that your Bloomberg sports update on Mark Bennett This is Bloomberg intelligence with Alex Steele and Paul Sweeney on Bloomberg radio Over here each and every week at this time Tapping into our Bloomberg intelligence analysts covering some 2000 companies and 130 industries worldwide I'm Paul Sweeney Alex steals off today All right inflation it's not just the U.S. folks It is everywhere including the UK They're filling it at the supermarket just as much as we are I'm joined by Bloomberg intelligence senior retail analyst Charles Allen Charles just give us a backdrop 30,000 foot level inflation the UK just give us your thoughts Well it's broad based and as you alluded to it's pretty global I mean we've got obviously energy So the rise in the oil price feeds through into gas prices diesel prices And also tangentially into the utility prices which are rising very very sharply in the UK We've also got food prices going up something that's probably been accelerated by the war in Ukraine What are we seeing from you've been covering these retailers for decades I'm trying to get a sense of how much they're going to be able to pass along versus how much is going to hit their margin as we think about some of those retailers I think that generally speaking I mean when you've got a price price that's going to affect everyone pretty much equally it will get passed along Whether consumers will pay for the same products at the same price as a different matter And I think this is where the differentiation for retailers is going to show up Those who have got stronger owned brand strategies those who can help consumers to save money out of their weekly shopping Bill So just give us a lay of the land in the UK How does that shape up from a competitive standpoint Who do you think might be net beneficiary versus maybe a net loser here Well I think we're already seeing this is we've got the German discount companies Aldi and little which you have in the U.S. as well Who are clearly gaining market share on some figures from kantar today the two combined have got to 15% market share which is a record high level for them but for them And I think what we're seeing is that the more established supermarkets sales as to a lesser extent Tesco are all finding it difficult to maintain the same level of sales that they had historically How about just give us a sense of how digital sales are in the retail space in the UK versus the U.S. They bought by a lot more things online today than they did more than two years ago including groceries What's the lay of the land in the UK Yeah I mean on digital I mean I think we've got a position where compared to the pre-pandemic level It's much higher in grocery It's around 12% of the sales at the moment But at the height of the pandemic it had got about 16 or 17% So it's fallen back from the peak levels Does it have been at And essentially we've got every retailer every supermarket in the UK involved in digital to a greater or lesser extent So we talk about inflation we're feeling it all over as you mentioned and obviously in the food space But also in energy gasoline diesel that kind of thing And when that bill goes up that is really felt in consumers pocketbooks Are you seeing that in the UK How long is expected to be elevated and how does that play out in consumer spending Well in a very in the short term which I mean it's quite a few months I mean spending on motor fuel is an absolute necessity people have to get to work at the moment they're probably using cars more than they did pre-pandemic as public transport use is still restricted So this is a big build that is eating into other spending I think in the UK more importantly is the utility bills which are going to go up more than 50% probably And that's going to be really painful Is that because the UK imports most of their energy Partly and it's partly just to do with the structure of the market and the way it's been also the fact that there is not as much storage facilities for gas as they used to be But I mean I think that we have definitely going to see some people having to choose between heating homes and the eating I mean this is already appearing But unfortunately in the summer is coming up So we had less need to spend quite so much on utilities but there is definitely going to be a squeeze And I mean obviously supermarkets will fill it to an extent but it seems it's more likely that it will fall into other into more discretionary areas of spending Probably the ones which have boomed over the pandemic So people bought a lot of durable goods in TVs new furniture new gardens over that period And that's an area which is probably going to be easier to cut back Charles Allen thank you so much for joining us Charles Allen Bloomberg intelligence senior retail analyst Coming up in.

"Him here on this bills Football Friday. Ask him about some injuries. What's going on with the match up with the Pittsburgh Steelers? And by the way, in case you didn't see the news yesterday, T J Watt did sign Joe. That's a lot of money. He got 28 year. Wow. I guess the Steelers kind of did break tradition on that what they were holding with the guaranteed money, and however, that was structured. It's not normally what they do. Basically, Adam Schefter tweeted today that like Watts. Agents thought they could even get more. But what was the one that? Yeah. Now what do you think about that, Like, I don't know in that story, and that's someone's putting that out there to make JJ Watt look like T J Watt. But, yeah, I'm sorry. T J look like Oh, yeah, He's such a great guy, right? Don't hold it against him that he He held out for held in for 28 year or whatever it is we'll because that all parties would want that The Steelers would even want that, like, put it out there that this guy is a team guy, you know, like at the end of the day, he's like I want to be a Steeler like and to put a story out there like that. Maybe it could have been could have stretched the truth. I think a little bit. But 28 million is an incredible amount of money. For a pass rusher. But as the cap is going to go up, But we're going to start seeing that more and more for the elites at that position. No doubt about it, Um T J watt going to play in this game. I don't think there's any doubt. That he was going to ever play in this game. Um, if he did not sign he would still have been making $10 million on the fifth year option. And at that point, you're like, Dude, you're under contract. You have to play for us. This to me was never going to get to that particular point. But there always was a question because the Steelers have been if we brought up with Tim Ben's earlier this week. They have been one of these organizations that have essentially Done it. You know where they've said. They've hold firm. They've allowed guys to go and they replaced them. It's hard to do that now in the NFL. I mean, it's hard to continually have that process move, especially if you don't have the franchise Hall of Fame quarterback, which I don't know Ben Roethlisberger truly is anymore. Obviously. Yeah. I mean, it seems as though they did do that, right? I mean, $80 million of total guaranteed money. Um, and that really carries through what I mean they really they're guaranteeing him money through the third year. So it at some point they were going to have to do it. And if you're going to make exceptions, you don't have to do it at every position. But there are certain positions where if you're going to operate that way. Quarterback make an exception Pass Russia. I think I would put pretty close after quarterback on that list of that's one of the most important positions to have on your team. If you've got an elite player At that position, like, yeah. Move, move the meter a little bit, like move your ways a little bit. If you have to ensure that that guy is not going to leave after one more year. We will have head coach Sean McDermott in just a few moments. He's wrapping up a few other things right now, before he's on the line with us. In the meantime, we've asked you to give us a call today to tell us what does Buffalo bills football mean to you? What does this weekend mean to you? Because There are two different aspects of this show. It's not just the big picture of Buffalo bills football, which I think there's some reflection from last year and man. I miss it. I miss being my friends and tailgating and and all of that, But there's also the week one just hits different right week. One is just way different than every other week. I don't care if you even if we had last year with full stands and full stadiums and people screaming week one is just different Every year. Doesn't matter. Yeah, boys starting. Oh, no. So you haven't let anybody down yet, Um I also think about Like early on when the schedule was being announced in the spring, or like right before it. I think the game that I wanted was like, Give me the Chiefs right away. Give me this Sunday night opener at Arrowhead or give me that Thursday night opener at the Tampa Bay didn't want Yes, you did You would you be wanting didn't ultimately I did, but I could swayed towards Yeah, Just give me give me in my own stadium week one. I don't even if I care who the opponent is, but just get me in my own stadium week one. Let me get the fans back in there. Let me let me start the season with them in the building and not have any, you know, don't don't go in Owen one after maybe a deflating loss to Kansas City or Tampa to start the year. Because that was definitely within the realm of possibility. Had that game happened. Just get me in there coming off of last season, And I mean, with Pittsburgh being the opponent, they absolutely nailed it. So originally, I kind of wanted them in last night's game, but I am definitely glad that they were not. When we knew exactly who the bill's opponents would be in 2021. People started trying to piece together what the schedule could look like. I think Jeremy is the first person I can remember saying, Give me Pittsburgh at home Week one. That's a great matchup. That's a great opening day for the league and for the Bills, and I agree every these two fan bases There's so much expectation and excitement here in Buffalo. But let's be honest. The Steelers are and I use the word spoiled earlier this week, their fans I think they kind of think it's their birthright just to roll out of bed and make the playoffs. Let him maybe even win divisions. I think it's possible we become that look over the next 89 10 years, you said. You said fans can be unbearable. If this keeps up and I get it. I understand that because I think it's also the way they're building. If there's a lot of similarities between the bills and the Steelers, I think the depth that they've put around their quarterback just all over the roster..

"At the beautiful name McGregor Square and Come on, join us Thursday night Football, by the way is going to be getting under way here in just a little bit. The world champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers going to be hosting the Dallas Cowboys. So come on and join us. Come say hi. We're on the corner of 19th and Wynkoop, and we're actually going to catch up with The guy. This bar is named after Tom coming up here in just a few minutes and give you some more very cool details about how beautiful this establishment is, and all the cool things you could do here. Offering as we looked at his first game for the Denver Broncos. One of the things we always talk about is a team doing everything it can in its power. To hold on to the great players that they draft when you see today that the Pittsburgh Steelers just opened up their wallets and gave T J Watt a mega deal. A four year extension worth more than $112 million. That's 28 million average per year, with 80 million fully guaranteed at signing Which makes him the highest paid defensive player in football. What does that do for the Denver Broncos when they are going to be looking to re sign Bradley, Chuck? Um Well, first of all, Bradley champ as to give the kind of numbers that T. J. Watt has given the Pittsburgh Steelers. He's giving him tremendous production over the last three years. That is second to none. The guys Outstanding football player. Um I don't worry so much about him because we have one more year with him. What I worry about is von Miller and what this does. When von Miller and I say if this correctly when Von Miller goes out there and he has a great season, What does that do for a guy? That's 31 32 years old? Do you go ahead and give him The requisite amount of money that those guys make that are elite players. I mean, and this is why I've been asking. Do you do extensions right now before the season starts, or do you waiting for another year? And see how things go. I don't believe in waiting when you have great players, So I'm worried about bomb. Miller more not do Bradley Chubb because it's more likely, Von Miller goes out and has T J Watt numbers more so than Bradley Chubb. What do you do with Von Miller? Do you give him the money now? Well, that's a great question because I talked to a former NFL player recently. Who said how much money in the motor's making. Yeah, everybody talks about the players in the amount of money that the players make. But the owners of doing pretty good if they're okay with pay that kind of money that NFL player just added himself. That's fine. Well, I mean, I mean, that's a lot of money. $28 million for one single player on the defensive side. The football just tells you that the NFL is healthy. The NFL is healthy. The league is doing well. And with that, you know, we say good luck to all the guys that's going out there, you know. His injuries are guaranteed in this business. Your best players had to deal with it all the great players that you remember from your past. They dealt with the same things that these guys are dealing with. Injuries are part of it. You just want to make sure that you are, uh, taking care of your body best as you can, and you give a great effort because who knows when it's done? There's no there's no way I knew that my NFL career would come to an end on uh, on a, um, Halloween night in 1999. There's there's no way that I could have known that. But that's really when it came to it was it That was it. I taught my Achilles. So when you tear your Achilles and your pass rusher rehab, and the time it takes to get back, it's a daunting task. I think, uh, Terrell Suggs is the only guy that I can remember of record that had a successful return. At that age, and I was 31 technology is a little bit more advanced today than it even was back in 1999. So that's a That's a great point. Alfred. That's a really, really good point.

"Of 12 01. I guess that's this morning. Alright, David. Technically, it's the beginning of Tuesday. The state of New York Has its first female governor, and I read that Andrew Cuomo's resignation was timed to take place at 11 59. So for two minutes, New York had no governor, but luckily We got through it. Everything was fine being based out on the East Coast. Um, what is the sense that you have of what's going on with Cuomo? Well, you know, I love that heavy sigh. Well, you know. Oh, my God. I have to talk about this. Oh, no, no, no, no, I actually it fascinates me as somebody who's been in public life, You know, really all of my adult career. I mean, you know the stuff that that I keep seeing coming out. I'm thinking don't these people ever learned? You know, Uh Cuomo was considered it's really something so Think about this. You let Mary rather Andrew Cuomo, who is, you know, highlighted for the great job he did in the early days of the the Covid 19 outbreak. He was hailed. He won an Emmy Mhm, which they've just taken away from him. Has just taken away from him. You want an Emmy for for the public service he did in laying out every day, a very solid message about what was going on in New York, and it was being watched around the world because he did such a fascinating job on that. Now, it turns out it may be that he was lying through his teeth. About his nursing home numbers. He kept them blow so he wouldn't look bad. But his problem, of course, has gotten it has become, you know this whole thing about sexual harassment on unwanted touching on what Collins and so forth. And you know if you think about it, you know, we've had it with Bill Clinton, Bill O Reilly and Fox News who who actually was a serial offender in this regard, but nobody talked about it that you know the head of Fox News, the most powerful news guy in the world. Quite frankly, maybe next to the Murdochs. He was thrown thrown essentially out of office because he got caught up. Uh, today show host. Uh, what's his name? Uh, I'm having a bad day with names here. Who? You know, David, Um, what I do is I actually take a piece of paper and I write some of those names down because like you when I go to when I go to reach for those names, they're not always there like they used to be. Well, you know, I guess my point is, you see all of these people. Bill Cosby is another example of somebody. These people do They think that their deeds Are just never going to, you know, come out in public and embarrass them their family or send them to jail it just as amazing to me. But you know, Rudy early. Giuliani at one time was considered America's marriage at a great job, you know, back The century, so to speak, and now he's a disgrace by. I think, even by Republican standards, he's a disgrace. So I just wonder what happens to these people with with Rudy Giuliani. I really think there's something chemically going on wrong with him. Maybe the aging process who knows? Or maybe it's just an ego out of control. But when you see these people, the guy like Cuomo and you know here, he's got a brother who's CNN who's got in some way or another deal with this until it's gradually fades away. It's just it just is just drove. Drives me crazy. Um, uh, when you see people like them, uh, you know, Charlie Rose. I know Charlie Rose. Charlie Rose helped me set up the talk show that I did in Dallas. When I was anchoring there. He worked side by side with us at gentle, five K x A s In Dallas, and he was a good friend. And, uh, I had no idea. I thought I just thought he was going to be the next Walter Cronkite. And I mean that in recent years, he was 60 minutes. Correspondent here, Charlie. He was on the revival of CBS this morning. You know, I mean, the guy almost had to have three lives in order to do everything and you know he was really well regarded. And he blew it. He may never, ever work again. Shame with Matt Lauer that sort of thinking before Matt Lauer. Same thing with him gets a $27 million contract to host, you know, uh, NBC's today show. And months later, he's out of work. It's just amazing to me that first of all, it's amazing. Busy people can be so immoral or be so troubled. It's also amazing to me that they think they can get away with it, and they hurt. You know, Let's forget about their hurt. How about the people? They've hurt along the way. What about the people that they slept with her? Uh, actually harassed in order to become a reporter at the network or to be a to get advancement within the network. I'm just talking now about broadcasting Truth. The industry has been replete with. There's probably since the invention of a film, but I'm just I'm just surprised people think that their dirty little secret is going to remain between them and 14 other people or 11. Other people. Uh, well, The thing is with some of them, David, I don't think I mean listen to what Cuomo sang. You know, it was cultural. It was a misunderstanding. And he is saying, even as of yesterday, you know I didn't do anything wrong. It is, You know, it's all going to come out. You know that This was just no big deal. I think that the Andrew Cuomo's and the Matt Lauer's of the world. It's not. I don't think that they're self reflective. I don't think that they think it's a bridge too far. You know, I think that they are blinded. They think that they have this magnetism, and they don't understand how the power dynamic fits into that. You know, when Matt Lauer's flirting with somebody who's an intern or a newly hired production assistant, and you know, she laughs at his jokes, he thinks well, man, I'm really funny. And this this hot young Girl. She's into me when the girl is thinking, Dear God, this man can end my career with a comment. I don't dare do anything that laugh at his jokes. They're just so thick David. They're so thick. Yeah, You're You're absolutely right. And the other component of that is when somebody is handing you a $28 million check annually. Uh, you know, money speaks to value in this country in ways that I think it's not quite so true in other countries, but especially in our celebrity and sense culture here. And when somebody is giving you a $28 million check your the top of the world. You've got everything going for you. You start to think that the rules of humanity no longer apply to you. And that ultimately becomes your undoing. That lower is not making $28 million a year anymore. Now he probably doesn't need that money anyway, because he made so much money. But here's a guy who has to walk into a coffee shop when the baseball cap on in the Hamptons where people used to rush up and take their picture with him, and now he's a persona non grata, even in the local coffee shops there. People. You know if they see them, they kind of like whisper to each other. Matt Lauer, who was you know, like most of us is aware of what's going on around him has to see that. I mean, he's got to be like a hurt little boy inside when he sees the fact that the same has gone the ridicule is there..

He's upset with word that one of the new restaurants that will be part of a massive renovation of the service areas will be Chick fillet. Bronson and the other two lettuce site whores who are part of the Assembly's L G B T Q Caucus have written to the Thruway Authority's executive director, expressing concerns about past support by Chick Fil A's Charitable Foundation for organizations hostile to LGBT Q rights. Bronson says in New York, the state has taken the correct policy decision to recognize the dignity and support the human rights of all individuals. So when we're making decisions regarding what vendor the state will contract with Or authorities of the state will contract with We should keep that public policy in mind. Bronson contends. The Thruway moving ahead with a plan to involved Chick fil A in the renovation plans is inconsistent with that policy. Throughway Authority released a statement saying that it supports an inclusive environment. It says that every restaurant brand that the private partner handling the redevelopment considered is legally required to adhere to the inclusive and non discriminatory standards that New York State embraces in Rochester. Randy Gorman for W. N. Y. C news in a statement. Chick fil A said the Assembly members letter contained inaccurate or outdated claims. And that, as of last year, it was focusing its giving program on education, homelessness and hunger. It's morning edition from NPR News. I'm Steve Inskeep, and I'm Sasha Pfeiffer. For years, Richard Branson, Jeff Brazos and Elon Musk have competed to be the first to offer commercial trips to space. And yesterday, Branson, the 70 year old British billionaire took the first ride he successfully reached the outer edge of space on a Virgin Galactic rocket plane named Unity. Reflect on this milestone. We're joined by Nick Schmidl, who joins us on Skype. He's a staff writer for the New Yorker who spent four years reporting from inside Virgin Galactic. Good morning, Nick. Good morning. Thanks for having me on big broad question. Why was this trip such a big deal? It was a big deal for a few reasons. It was a huge deal for Richard Branson, who before becoming a billionaire had had nurtured this dream of flying to space. And so yesterday was it was in some ways a vindication for him. I mean, he's been wanting to do this, as you said, uh, since 2000 and four when they when he created version Galactic, and it was always going to be next year next year next year, and for a variety of reasons that detail and test gods, this book book that I wrote came out two months ago that you know He's just, uh the the program has constantly you know, for for for technical reasons and engineering reasons, and all kinds of other reasons has just just kind of eluded him. And so yesterday was a was a big moment for him. Proving that they can put you know they could fly this this rocket ship to the edge of space with passengers on board. They have done this three previous times, but it had been with test pilots or just with one engineer in the back. So, yeah, this is this is a big big moment for him and for the company and for those passengers on board, we should note that some of them are private citizens who paid huge amounts of money to go and other people will pay more. Give us a sense of what people are paying to do this Well, so on yesterday's trip, there was no one no one. None of them paid. They are all employees or version Galactic that were on board yesterday. Um Jeff Brazos. However, who is going to fly here in eight days. Someone who is as yet unnamed paid $28 million for a seat with Jeff Bas. Oh, so so people are ready to pony up massive amounts of cash. Virgin Galactic has 600 customers who have made a deposit of 202 $150,000 to hold their seat. And they are all they have been waiting since 2000 and 4 2000 and five for their opportunity to go to space, and and now we have taken a step forward. Now. It's important to note that in some ways yesterday was kind of a a proof of concept and the realization of creating a commercial space line that has airline like like frequency and I can do it in a way. That in some ways kind of bucks history, and we have to remember that the fatality rate for space flight is about 3%. And version. Galactic knows that that if they kill one out of every 3 33 passengers that goes up that's not going to be a very It's not. That's not a solid business model. So they are trying to to to do something that all of the government funded predecessors have not been able to do, which is to bring that fatality rate down to a fraction of a percent. In many ways, you know, to try and emulate. Kind of airline safety in about 30 seconds. How realistic will it ever be for the general public to do this? People who can't pay more than you would, by you would spend on a house in order to get on one of these. Well, I mean, look, I still I still can't afford a business class ticket across the across the Atlantic. And I don't think that a space flight is going to be less than a business class ticket across the Atlantic anytime in the next decade. Yeah, so for most of us will never get up there. It'll be. It'll be. It'll be a while so all the talk about democratizing space is noble, but it could be. It could be quite some time. That's next Middle, a staff writer for the New Yorker, his book is called Test. God's Virgin Galactic in the Making of a modern astronaut. Thank you, Nick. Thanks for having me on.

"Some training some limited training. As I said Richard Branson's definitely had some more specific G force training the whole point of this exercise. The whole point of this big media event the world's media is gathered here is to a prove the technology works but be come back and explain what the experience is like, because if you want to go on board You've got to have a very healthy bank account. Hmm. And, uh, I want to bring in Chad Anderson, who's with us on set in New York and Chad, having gone through this training, wondering what you're feeling in this moment, having invested in this industry. Four years on the hope on the promise that this would be something big that there is a big future for space tourism that people around the world are going to want to board virgin Galactic or blue origin. Flights for that, you know, screaming a few minutes of of weightlessness. In space, You know? What are you feeling as you watch Eve, take off. Lot of excitement. Um, this has been, You know, we've been building to this point for a very long time, and it's great to see it finally coming to fruition. I mean, they have been talking about getting to space later this year, I think since 2000 and seven So it's kind of surreal to actually be watching it happen right now. You have to imagine that this is all part of the experience. I mean, Virgin has galactic has built this in To everything they have done so that the long waiting game people have put down deposits. And so they focused on everything. Um, calling them future astronauts building a group of folks that come together. They have events. You know, they come to Spaceport America. They They do these weightless parabolic flights on jets. They do the centrifuge training. You know it's a whole experience. And so you have to imagine that they have now taken that as well on launch day. And people experiencing this in flight. You know, they're in a beautiful cabin. Lots of windows. You have to imagine the excitement is building and they prepared for this part of the experience as well. So you know you've got An hour to get excited. Let your nerves settle. And you know that might actually make it much better and easier for you to enjoy that short period of time of intense stimulation, you know, so a bit of time to sort of get your feet under you get prepared. For the thrill of a lifetime, Chad earlier in our conversation, you drew the parallel between, um transcontinental flight around the world flight, uh, in the way that prices have come down, especially over the last few decades. And I wonder When you think the price of this type of experience will get to the point where really the masses of people can experience like they can experience buying a ticket on Southwest Virgin Galactic has said they want to do 400 of these flights per year from around the world. That's more than one every day. By the end of this decade. We're still so early to be having this conversation, but it's a fun one to have. So the pricing strategies of both companies have been very different and very interesting. Virgin Galactic came out first and started taking deposits and they just assume you know they did some market research. And they said that they think that the market can handle 250,000 per ticket. People started to put down money for that blue origin, on the other hand, waited until they were ready to fly. And they did a price auction much more sort of Silicon Valley approach to pricing and they you know, the ultimate, um price paid was 28 million for a similar Arguably similar experience. And so now we know that the ceiling is much higher in anything that they they charge from here on out is going to look like a discount by comparison. But more. Interestingly, they now have all of that information about all of the other bids that came in how many There were. How many. You know what people were willing to pay, and so they can now use that in their pricing strategy. We don't know what blue origin is going to charge yet. I've heard, you know, from reputable sources. People who would know that it's well north of $500,000. But we'll have to wait and see. But these are these are significant. Significant prices in airlines, You know it took from the first flight in the early 19 hundreds until Um, you know, the late seventies for a coach class to be developed, and I hope you know, I think with technology today that the way that things develop, I think that you know that we'll get their whole lot faster. All right, Chad. Uh, we should mention that about 700 or so people bought those initial tickets that were available from Virgin Galactic on their initial flights. We believe some celebrities purchase those tickets from Tom Hanks, too. Justin Bieber to Lady Gaga $250,000 a pop and Richard Branson has said that he will have a big announcement after he land hopefully safely today about giving more people that opportunity to go to space. So we want to know exactly what that promise will be. I want to bring in Will Whitehorn, now the former president of Virgin Galactic who is with us will obviously I imagine this is a huge moment for you. It has been a long path here. There were design changes. There were delays. There were some deaths along the way. Talk to us about what this means for you today and for the entire virgin team. Well, I think I I left Virgin 10 years ago. But I've still stayed pretty close to this project because I've ended up working in space industry. I have my satellite company I'm shareholder and director of which is quoted on the Swedish stock market. We're going to be using Virgin orbit Sister company to launch satellites in the future. And I'm also running a new space investment company called Seraphim Space Investment Trust that starts.

"In the spirit of the long weekend. We've got a bit of a travel themed episode for y'all Not intentionally, but just go with me here. Jeff Bezoza steps down as CEO of Amazon today, 27 years to the day after he founded the company, and now he is off to space. He's turning his attention, among other things to his commercial space enterprise Blue origin. It's scheduled to launch its first human flight with bezels on board. On July 20th Not to be outdone in the billionaire space race. Richard Branson has scheduled his own flight with his own company, Virgin Galactic for July 11th. The companies are competing for paying passengers who will turn extraterrestrial excursions. Into a business as marketplaces. Meghan McCarty, Karina reports. There is not a whole lot of regulation when it comes to the final frontier. One of the three other people on the flight with Bas Oh swill be an anonymous bidder who paid $28 million for a seat. The kind of customer blue origin will be counting on. Many of them are the same people that might to do extreme scuba cave diving or climb Mount Everest or they're looking for that thrill. Greg A tree is a professor of space policy at Arizona State. It's not necessary. You've got to have the right stuff in order to go to begin with, And basically you go sign up. Blue origin and Virgin Galactic are offering minimal training to deal with G four sand zero gravity, but that's not even required by the government, says Joseph Color, with the Center for Space Policy and Strategy. The F A is actually not permitted to provide regulation that specifically protect health and safety of the flight participants and a crew and so forth. That's a congressional mandate for this learning period of commercial human spaceflight. Federal authorities are responsible for making sure no one on the ground or in a plane will be affected by a launch. But the folks on board fly at their own risk, says Carina, Greece with the Commercial spaceflight Federation. The entire purpose is to allow adults to buy flights so that the most innovative and safe Companies can continue to innovate and expand U. S leadership in space. This learning period for commercial human spaceflight is set to end in 2023. I'm Meghan McCarty, Carino for marketplace. Sticking with our travel theme. If you look at the two days that led into the holiday weekend that Thursday and Friday, the number of passengers cleared through checkpoints actually surpassed the totals back in 2019. That is the first time that's happened since the pandemic hit. So yeah, Travel is coming back. But I should say one piece of this travel recovery is still lagging pretty badly and that is business trouble. Marketplaces, Mitchell Hartman has more Business travel is still down as much as 50% from pre pandemic levels, and that matters to airlines and hotel chains, says Joanna Piacenza at morning consult. They make up 10 to 15% of travelers, but they can contribute up to 75% for a company's revenues. Buy premium air tickets at the last minute book. Hotel suites eat out on expense accounts morning consult, finds three and 10 pre pandemic business travelers aren't planning a trip this year. Ellen Lewis, it consulting firm Ellie Kay says some of that, thanks to lessons learned during the pandemic technology, zoom and teens or replace some meetings that would have occurred. Live going forward. Lewis says. Other kinds of travel resistance come from management and employees, CFO's have been able to reduce their travel budgets. Reopening those purse strings will take time. Productivity people have discovered they found that they can be more productive by not investing time and travel on the flip side, says Maduro, an accretion in at airline weekly. The new post pandemic way we work might boost some domestic business travel. Instead of having people come into an office every day. They may have sort of been offsite every quarter every month. In a Christian says the big question. Can these new remote white collar road warriors replace the big spending executives who used to book business class tickets to London at the last minute for lunch? I'm Mitchell Hartman for Marketplace on Wall Street today, nothing. It was closed because of the fourth weekend, but we'll look at that cookout you had when we do the numbers. Mhm.

Riot Games Reports League of Legends Worlds Viewership for 2020
"No secret that League of Legends world's is the most watch E sports event every year but the absolute massive gap between worlds and other events is all staggering to see this morning right games reported an average minute audience or AMA of twenty-three million as an increase of about 1.2 million / 2019. They also reported a peek concurrent viewership of forty six million viewers and over 1 billion total hours watch over the entire course of the tournament e Sports viewership can be confusing to track given the difference between a streaming platforms track viewers and how TV networks do so. So Riot and Activision Blizzard brought in Nielsen to provide the average minute audience or am a stack the stat is directly comparable to other he's dead. Events who use AMA and to traditional sports events and their TV ratings any sports Activision Blizzard's announced AMA for the OverWatch League finals was 2.9 Million globally. That's just a little bit over 10% of what world's received. It's no wonder o w l team owners are in conversations to get partial refunds from a Beyond those lofty team by ends, but worlds was also higher than most traditional sports events as well. The 2020 MLB World Series saw an average of about ten million viewers per game. So about half of League of Legends world. The NBA finals were even worse averaging about 7 and 1/2 hours per game. It should be said that the World Series was in line with previous historical averages while the 2020 NBA Finals was an anomaly only seeing about half of the viewership. We saw over the five finals before it off other events of League of Legends world's beat included the NHL finals, which was at two million viewers and gulps the Masters at about six million viewers. There are only a small handful of sporting events drawing more viewers than League of Legends at home. Point Wimbledon Tennis is about 28 million viewers the Superbowl sits around a hundred million viewers every year and then the Champions League finals which neared five hundred million viewers back in 2019. I believe a bunch of other soccer events are probably over that number as well, but I didn't go through all the regional leagues. This does not include events that happen every four years like the Olympics the soccer World Cup or the Cricket World Cup, which are all well overly of Legends as well.
