The Left's Sinister Plan: They Need You Stupid and Ignorant!
"In an era of shortened attention spans the left is super tactical politically they need people stupid i mean this they need you dumb and ignorant if you're not dumb and ignorant they can never do what they can do you know what i don't wanna go out of order let's but let's go anywhere jim cut six if you would bill maher uncovered here's what i mean wanted for years to use emergency powers to be able to shut down the economy to show you what they can do when they're in charge fully weaponizing the economy shutting down sectors they don't like they have craved this power forever covid was the perfect vehicle to do it but what's the catch the catch with covid was simple it was never gonna work if you didn't believe covid was the biggest threat to your life ever so they can't have smart people because smart people would like well what's the fatality rate what's the or not how infectious is this that's what conservative ass gas they and were like wait we shouldn't shut the economy down for this thing is bad it's definitely gonna kill some people and that's horrible but this isn't worth shutting down the whole economy cost -benefit dumb liberals were like no way this is the deadliest thing ever it kills a thousand percent of people it's not even possible it doesn't ten thousand percent it's the deadliest virus ever folks it's like hantavirus and Ebola it's like that Dustin Hoffman virus from but outbreak what does that move tapa or whatever the hell it was this is the worst thing ever if you fell for that because you're dumb and because some charismatic lefty told you that you were doing a public good by sitting in your house and while rotting away this virus that had a fatality rate it turns out now which I'll get to later the in show when people under 70 of only 0 .07 they need you to be stupid people like Malay and Trump who cracked through the stupid divide and people start to listen to them they're afraid of that that's why it's not the policies that bother them it's the threat to their power from them play Bill Maher talking about exactly this Bill Maher is a lefty by the way we all know that he's not our friend but once in a while he'll stumble on the truth here's Maher talking about how liberals are just morons that don't know a damn thing about covid check this out but what about liberals you know the high information by the science people? In a recent Gallup survey Democrats did much worse than Republicans in getting the right answer to the fundamental question what are the chances that someone who gets covid will need to be hospitalized the answer is between one and five percent forty one percent of democrats thought it was over fifty percent another twenty eight percent put the chances of twenty to forty nine so almost seventy percent of Democrats are wildly off on this key question and also have a greatly exaggerated view the of danger of covid 2 and the mortality rate among children I'm gonna get back to that point later but I'm serious when I tell you this you you know I know don't like liberals I'm not hiding it liberals listening you don't like me either that's fine we don't have to like each

A highlight from The Mike and Mark Davis Daily Chat - 11/14/23
"Lots of channels. Nothing to watch. Especially if you're searching for the truth. It's time to interrupt your regularly scheduled programs with something actually worth watching. Salem News Channel. Straightforward, unfiltered, with in -depth insight and analysis from the greatest collection of conservative minds. Like Hugh Hewitt, Mike Gallagher, Sebastian Gorka, and more. Find truth. Watch 24 -7 on SNC .TV and on Local Now, Channel 525. 738 on this Tuesday, the 14th day of November. Lots of Texas political news. But I did get a chance to spend a moment there in the opening half hour saying that I grow weary of the moral fog. In fact, on Twitter just a couple of moments ago, in these fractured times, I'm glad to give a Democrat some credit. Democrat Senator Chris Coons, who is right on Israel, was confronted by this stooge pro -Hamas activist on a train who badgered him. Why not a ceasefire? Why not a ceasefire? Sometimes moral clarity is something that needs to be delivered in a certain fashion. I'd like to think I have it intellectually and conceptually. My buddy Mike Gallagher joins us, who had an experience yesterday that will bring that kind of clarity in the harshest but necessary terms. I just can't wait to see how this day went. It had to be amazing and I'm just so glad you're here and the floor is yours. And tell everybody what you got a chance to do yesterday. Well, it was something that no one would want to see. It was pretty brutal. It was worse than I thought it was going to be. Israel put together a 45 -minute sort of a collection of video and audio and still photographs. They were videos from the terrorists' GoPros and their cell phones. There were closed -circuit videos and there were audio intercepts. They got audio recordings of the terrorists calling their families. The IDF was able to tap into some of these calls where they were calling their parents excitedly, saying, I just killed 10 Jews with my bare hands, Mom. Your son is a hero. Your son is a hero, Aloha Akbar. And they're all joyful and ecstatic. A couple of takeaways. When you watch the brutality of the violence that they inflicted on these innocent men, women, children, elderly people, there are a couple of things that really stand out. Number one, the ecstasy and the joy that the Hamas terrorists experienced as they were killing people, including little babies in little onesies and little daisy outfits and cute little kids covered in blood, slaughtered brutally. And they were absolutely euphoric, Mark. That's the only word to use. It was ecstatic for them. They had such a joy. And I kept telling myself, there's no way they think that Jews are human. There's no way that they regard them as human beings. You couldn't do that to another human being and have that kind of satisfaction. I mean, let's face it. When you think about crime in America or crimes of passion or murders or robberies or whatever, what have you, normal people don't have euphoria when they cut somebody's head off. They don't get joyful and they don't call their moms and brag about it and say, look what I did. Look what I did. So number one, that's one of the big takeaways. And the other thing I kept thinking about, and it was a somber mood. It was at the Israeli embassy. There were a number of some media people there, some pastors. It was a gathering from the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews who we worked with closely right after the terror attack of October the 7th. About 60 people in the room, maybe 70. It was very somber. It was very well done. But as you can imagine, there were tears. There was crying. There was weeping. One pastor in front of me, in fact, he happens to be a pastor from Sarasota, not far from where I'm at right now. When it was over, he kind of flung himself down onto the ground and laid across the stage and was laying on his belly just heaving, just crying and sobbing. I mean, you're looking right at the face of the devil. You're looking at evil with this. And I kept thinking, Mark, how I wish the people marching at Columbia and Harvard and in Austin, how I wish they could see this video. From the river to the sea, you proud now? You proud now? I mean, you know, the one pastor, I spent some time, I pulled double duty after the show and then I did the screening at this embassy. And then I was asked to do an afternoon show for WAVA, which is a huge Christian teaching and talk station. Over in Arlington, yeah. Yep, the Arlington. And so Don Crow has been out on a medical leave and they asked me to fill in for him. And I had with me Bishop Lanier, who is the chairman of the board of the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, as a very profound speaker, very eloquent, very, you know, just a great orator and a great man of the cloth. And he said, look, I don't think we're going to change their minds. We need to change our minds. We need to change what we say from the pulpit. We've got to stop the equivocation. Well, it's two sides here. People are dying on both sides. That is both -sides -ism of the worst possible stripe. It really is, Mark. And I just want to reiterate that because I don't know that Israel, listen, if Israel was guilty of any of the stuff that I saw yesterday, that I experienced, and again, I'm not trying to be melodramatic. It's one of the most painful things I've ever, ever encountered. I mean, and I'll spare you gory details. You can imagine how bad it was. I mean, you already have seen some of it, you know, lining up on the streets and just shooting into cars of innocent passengers trying to drive down the street. But there was one scene in particular that got to me the most. I do want to share it with you. There was a father alone with his sons. The mother was gone, and it was in the kibbutz. They did a horrible massacre in this kibbutz, which is like a Jewish religious holy neighborhood, you know. But they're beautiful little homes. I mean, oh, their homes were so cute and decorated and, you know, plants on the porches and everything. And they were meticulously taken care of. So here's this father in the house, and it's all captured on the family's closed -circuit video. So they had like a ring system all throughout the house and outside, and it was all captured. So the father is with these two boys. I would guess the one little boy was about seven or eight. The other one was probably 11 or 12. And the little boys were in their underwear. And the shots ring out, and the father, they're all terrified, and the father desperately tries to protect his children. He scoops them both up, and they run into the backyard, and they go into a little shed that's in the backyard. It looked like a little gardening shed. And you see a Hamas terrorist come around the corner and casually pull the pit off of a grenade and throw the grenade in the shed. And it blows up, and the father immediately slumps out of the shed dead. You could tell he's instantly dead. But the two little boys are alive, and they come running out in their underwear. The one boy, you can see it looks like his eye is missing. He is terrified. The two little boys are crying, Daddy, Daddy, Mommy, Mommy. They go into the kitchen. Now the closed -circuit video picks them up in the kitchen where they're talking to each other. And they said to each other, and it's all translated, of course, and they said, Is this real? Is this real? I think we're going to die. Daddy died. Daddy died. Where's Mommy? Where's Mommy? And then the one little boy turns to his brother, his little brother, and says, Can you see out of that eye? He says, No, I can't. And he looks at him, and you can see that it looks like his whole side of his face was injured from the grenade. And he says, You can't? You can't? You can't see? He goes, No, I can't see anything out of my eye. And the little boys are crying, and they're calling for their Mommy. And then the closed -circuit shifts back to the backyard where a kibbutz security guard, actually two security guards, have escorted the mother to the property. She had been away. So they take her to the back of the shed where her dead husband is laying. She is now in anguish and screaming and collapsing and screaming, Where are my boys? Where are my boys? At the same time, the two boys, they run out of the house in the front, trying to escape. And Lord knows what fate they met. I don't have a whole lot of high hope that they made it. And I'd like to look into that. I'm going to follow up with my friends at the fellowship to see if those boys were reunited with their mother. But that's the human suffering that I wish people who seem to dehumanize Jews would see. It was eye -opening. I'm glad I did it. I'm honored that I did it. I'm glad you did, too. I'm so glad. But it was awful. And I wouldn't want anybody to see it. For people who – and sometimes you can hear people in your headphones and hear people driving around. And I want to give a voice to people saying we could show a horrible video of a Palestinian child to whom something terrible has happened, and that is undeniably true.

A highlight from XRP ETF SCAM (Crypto Whales Dump $2.2 Billion)
"XRP ETF. First, it was just a glimmer of hope. And then it was a rumor. And then it was confirmed. It was confirmed to be a fake rumor. What was going on in the markets? If you're alive with those ATB, you're a part of that emotional roller coaster. We're going to cover all that and more as Discover Crypto. I was in a glass box of emotions, everybody. How are we all doing today? Make sure you go and hit that like button. We got Tim and Rodney on the ones and twos today. Tim, he's going to help us cover some of this macro news here. You're more in tune with the Jay, the Chirpow and what's going on with that. Also, you can help decipher the charts with XRP. What was going on with that, guys? It was very, very volatile. And then we got Rodney. He's going to break down some stuff with Grok. That's right. Now you got another meme coin for us, right? No, it's just Grok. We're back again today, baby. Holding it down for the DJs. Speaking of coming back, what was that one of the top gainers we had for the past 24 hours in the top 10? The last 24 hours? I think it was Matic. Yeah, Matic's been shining, getting up. It got to $0 .98. So almost to that dollar, got rejected right there. What coin did I live by on the stream yesterday? It was Matic, everybody. So I'm feeling good about that one. I'm going to go ahead and dislocate my shoulder from patting myself on the back so much. Chat, make sure you give that like. We got a lot of people in here today, DCA and Prey. He sees the special background. All right, everybody. But first, we're going to cover that XRP news. Tim, did you see the charts? Were you live looking at it? What was your emotions at the time? We were wrapping out the show on Investing Bros. So it was like Investing Bros. We got the best clothes. We got jewelry and all the... We're literally like, all right, guys, we're wrapping out the show today. And then all of a sudden, XRP jumps up above 70 cents and then it jumps above 70 and it just keeps going. And so we end up having to run a little long. You usually get off that four so that everyone goes over to ATB. But, you know, we had to run a little long and we just went nuts with it. Went all the way up. Did we end up... That's before. I'm on the daily chart. Where do we end up getting to with the top? I think we closed down. We hadn't yet come down.

A highlight from Q & A on Headaches, Sourdough Bread, Ozempic for Weight Loss, and Varicose Veins
"Did you know that as you age, your natural production of collagen declines? This results in fine lines and wrinkles, joint pain, dark circles under your eyes, and more. You see, collagen is like the glue that holds your body together, and luckily, there's an easy way to feed your body additional collagen. It's bone broth. Studies show consuming bone broth protein can boost metabolism, support gut health and digestion, reduce cellulite formation, can help grow healthy skin and nails, support joints and more. But if you've ever made bone broth, you know it's time -consuming, and who really has the time to simmer bones for 48 hours? That's why I like to use bone broth protein powder. Simply mix a scoop with hot water, add to a smoothie or even a baked dish, and reap all the benefits of collagen -rich protein in just 30 seconds a day. While most companies use the hides or the skin of the animal, which are less nutrient -dense than the bones, I always prefer using bones, and that's why I love Paleo Valley bone broth protein because they use 100 % grass -fed beef bones from cows that are never fed GMO grains or any grains for that matter. They even test for over 40 pesticides to ensure this is the purest bone broth protein on the market. These bones are slow -simmered to extract as much collagen protein as possible. They don't use any chemicals or solvents, just good old -fashioned bone broth that's then gently powdered. Now when we think about bone broth, again, we think about the protein collagen, and there's several key amino acids in there, including glycine, proline, and hydroxyproline, and those help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and help reduce cellulite. They're also critical for anti -aging as they help regenerate bones and help muscle and support heart health. Studies have shown eating bone broth soup on a regular basis can increase fullness, reduce your calorie intake, and lead to weight loss over time, and the amino acid glycine is really important for good sleep. In fact, a 3 -gram dose of glycine improves sleep by lowering body temperature and boosting serotonin levels, which is a key precursor to melatonin, and it does that without causing daytime drowsiness. Each serving of 100 % grass -fed beef bone broth protein contains 15 grams of collagen protein and 3 .4 grams of glycine, so you get that critical amount.

If you're looking for a great health coach and she'd be happy to walk you through really the process that it takes and go through that with you guys. And so with that said, let's jump into some of these questions, Dr. Yvonne. Thank you so much, Dr. Jockers, for that wonderful introduction. So yes, let's start with a question posed by John on Instagram. He says, my wife seems to get headaches whenever she gets stressed or doesn't sleep her best. Are there any nutrients that she is missing or that may help her? This is a great question. So your wife, John, is getting headaches when she's having trouble sleeping or when she's stressed, and you're wondering about what nutrients are involved in headaches. Well, when it comes to headaches, there are certain nutrients that are top of mind. Number one would be magnesium. Magnesium is to the body what oil is to a car, meaning the more that we use our body, the more stressed we are, the more we're using up magnesium. We need a lot of magnesium on a regular basis. It helps calm our neurotransmitters, helps balance our excitatory and inhibitory neurotransmitters. It helps calm and stabilize our blood sugar, our adrenal hormones. It helps calm and relax those. I think of magnesium like an adaptogen. We hear about adaptogens when it comes to herbs like ashwagandha. An adaptogen acts kind of like a thermostat. So if it's 80 degrees outside and you want it 70 in your house, the air conditioning comes on to bring the cool air in, to bring it down to 70. If it's 40 degrees outside and you want it 70, the heat will come on. That's kind of what magnesium does. It's a great balancer. It's the ultimate balancer when it comes to nutrients. And so that is the number one nutrient that I see associated with headaches. Another one is dehydration in general and a loss of electrolytes. Magnesium would be one of those electrolytes, but just drinking enough water on a regular basis. A lot of times people have headaches because they haven't been consuming enough water, and particularly water and salt. So getting a little bit of salt could be some sort of good quality sea salt or like Celtic salt, pink Himalayan salt, something along those lines, a little bit of salt and some water. A lot of times people feel a lot better. A lot of times like for me, for example, I know when I was dealing with a lot of health issues in my early 20s, I craved pickle brine, pickle brine. So what is that? It's a lot of salt and water. And so I had adrenal hypo function. So my body really needed extra salt and I would get headaches. I would get dizzy at times. I'd have very low blood pressure. And when I would drink the pickle brine or just kind of a salted water, I felt so much better. My energy came back. I had less head, you know, the headache went away, felt significantly better. So that's another really common one. And then outside of that, I want to think about certain B vitamins. In fact, we know that headaches can be associated with higher levels of homocysteine, which is an inflammatory protein in the bloodstream. And so basically homocysteine is part of the glutathione production cycle or the methylation cycle. And so it's taken from an amino acid. Methionine gets metabolized and should result in the production of SAMe as well as glutathione. But we also produce glutathione or master antioxidant, but we also produce homocysteine in that process. Now, normally, again, it gets converted. But for some people, they're deficient in certain nutrients, magnesium being one of them, as well as in particular B12, vitamin B6 and folate all play a role in that conversion process of homocysteine into glutathione and SAMe. And so when we are deficient there and some of these B vitamins, homocysteine goes up.
Fresh "About 70" from WTOP 24 Hour News
"Weakest people that are homeless. The area that I'm we from, kind of like we're a family and we all kind of stuck together. In an effort to help keep homeless residents safe, LA activated its winter shelter program early, but officials say about 70 % are still living outdoors. And atmospheric rivers flew to the Pacific Northwest. National Weather Service meteorologist Bob Orvech tells us what that means for the region. Right now the snow levels are pretty high across the Pacific Northwest. Just the highest elevations of the Washington Cascades and Oregon Cascades are seeing some snow. So most of the precipitation is falling in the form of rain, so it does bring some threat of river flooding as we go on through the week as we get day after day of heavy rain.

A highlight from Is Solana The Next Ethereum Killer
"Can a Solana overtake Ethereum? We're seeing a lot of metrics that have a lot of people, their heads are spinning. They're surprised. They don't know what's happening. They don't know why Solana keeps continuing to pump, or we're seeing a lot of positive numbers. We're seeing active users skyrocketing. And also we're getting listed on Perpetual's futures on a very major exchange. You're going to want to check this out. This is Discover Crypto. Thank you for joining everybody. Welcome back, Rodney. We're talking about some altcoins. And now we're not going to talk about ranked 8 ,000 meme coins. Is that okay? We're talking about Solana. I guess we could talk about... Everybody's talking about Grok, I thought. That's right. Grok. Well, yeah. It was like, what? Maybe a top 200 at this point. Hit $186 million market cap. I just saw Kyle Chasse tweet, or Chasse tweet. He's like, I bought the top. Ah. You know, so it happened. As they do. Did you get in on Grok, Rodney? I did not get in on Grok. I faded Grok at 20 million. Sorry. Excuse me for not buying a meme coin. You know. It went up to 150, right? So you missed out on about a seven and a half X. It's still sending, yeah. All right. So you're only missing out on a 10X so far. So far, it's a 10X. But Rodney, you just got in last night, correct? Yes, sir. Yeah. How was that? How was it flying into the Atlanta airport? I heard it's... My fiance, she has Follow Atlanta now, and they're shutting down the whole airport. Apparently, it's like, you know, entire hallways are like two foot wide. What was your experience? Well, I actually drove here from Charlottesville, Virginia, so it was an eight hour drive, but very nice. Got to listen to Joe Rogge on the way here. Some of my favorite cryptocurrency channels. Okay. Yeah. All right. Well, speaking of cryptocurrency, let's just get right into the stories here, folks. We are going to talk about Solana in a bit, but first, let's look at the crypto market. We have Bitcoin down about 1%. Let me go ahead and hit refresh just in case we're getting a little bit fresher. All right. Bitcoin down 1%. But Ethereum is up about 2 % right now, XRP down 2 .5%. Solana is cooling off, folks. Solana is almost down to 5 % along with Cardano, but both of them had a positive week. Solana just had a 10 times better week than Cardano there, 38 % to a 3 .8 % pump there. So if you're holding Solana over Cardano, you're feeling pretty good. If you're holding both, you're wondering, you're looking at your Cardano bag, poking it with the stick, like the meme, come on, do something, do something. It'll happen eventually, folks. Just trust me. Then we have Chainlink down to 5 .5 % as well, but Matic is up. But we look, look at Celestia, Tia, Tia is up. We were talking about Tia, Tia is up 25%, 125 % for the week. Now, TJ, did you see any Tia actually, you saw Celestia? I mean, I know it's Drew's wife's name, so he's been big on it, but he actually, I think was talking about Celestia. Yeah, we did a short on it a while back. We noticed it when it very first popped out. Obviously it's strong in some of the Asian markets, a competitor, so to speak, coming out of nowhere. We're seeing, we're moving up very quickly through the top 100. I think it's ranked 65, 68, something like that right now. I mean, it was under 100 a week or two ago when we first covered it. Definitely something to keep an eye on. And this is something that's important that I wanted to mention on today's stream. As we're getting into a new bull market, there's a lot of different ways to look at different altcoins and value different things. When you're building out your portfolio, there's something to be said for projects that have been around for a little while that you know are going to perform into the bull market. Again, we've looked at them a lot. They're in the top 20s, top 50s, the Maddox, the Mutables, the avalanches, the Solanas, kind of the big performers of the last cycle. However, the ones that tend to have the most explosive gains can be the things that are launching around this time, the newer things. It'll be interesting to see if that trend proves through in this cycle. But Tia, Celestia would be one of those ones that it looked like tech had been around for a while, the team had been around for a while, and they were waiting for the right time to launch to really capture attention in this bull market. So watching how those perform over the next few months, I do think is going to be key. We're going to be doing a deep dive on Celestia coming up in the next week or so. I have some of that going into the works. But watching layer ones, layer twos in the narratives, obviously, in this cycle, I think is going to be a good strategy if you're looking to make those gains. All right. But speaking of gains, we also have the other side of the coin, and that's the losses, folks. The biggest loser is Rollbit for the day, down 10 percent and then Kronos. But if you look at the week here, the biggest loser is Trust Wallet and then followed by XRP. Oh, no. XRP was the number two loser for the week, folks. So it's just interesting to see a top five coin be one of the biggest losers right there. Nio, Nio as well. Nio is down now. Nio is on a video I'm working on right now, the top five coins out of Asia, everybody. And Nio is one of the five. So that might be one. All right. I'll be joining in in a second here. But I think it's time for us to talk a little Solana here. Now, Rodney, what are your broad thoughts on Solana as a sign in real quick? Yeah, well, I think that could be one of the bigger comeback stories of this next run, because really the reason why it dumped down so much, because look at everything dumped during the bear market. But the reason why it dumped down significantly was the negative association it had with Almeida Research, Sam Beckman Fried and stuff like that. But now that we're putting all that stuff behind us, it's probably going to recover. I mean, beside what the occasional network outage is, it's actually a pretty solid project. So a lot of people bought that dip understanding that the reason why it was down wasn't because of function. It was because of the negative publicity. Just like Elon Musk going on Joe Rogan's show, smoking some, you know, green and then dumping Tesla stock. Yeah, I always talk about that podcast. I saw that podcast and I remember thinking, oh, wow, this guy is incredibly bright. I would want to own Tesla stock. A lot of people say, oh, yeah, let's dump it. Well, Solana is overtaking Ethereum by active users after a 70 % spike. Everybody let's look at some of the numbers here. So this is according to Arnimix, they had 356 ,000 unique users on Saturday beating Ethereum's 330 ,000. So beat them by 26 ,000 right there. The milestone was driven by a sharp uptick with the network hosting only 200 ,000 just one week ago, less than a week ago. So it was $100 ,000 less. For comparison, ETH consistently holds around 300 to 350 with two brief spikes above 400k in a surge of more than 1 million wallets. But the price of Solana has plummeted. Is it still more than 96 % from 2021 high of 250 bucks? Does that sound right? I don't know about 96%. Yeah, no, no, that's not right. At one point, at one point when it fell to $10 in January, active addresses on the network shrank 85 % from over a million, 1 .28 to around 200 ,000 this September, according to the block. But Solana refused to stay down and now it is up 145 % just in the past four weeks. So everyone holding on to the profit feel good. And then some analysts have been quick to pronounce that Solana has flipped Ethereum by active users due to the recent uptick. However, the ecosystem has expanded beyond its base layer with the majority of ETH activity now taking place on layer two. So Solana may surpass Ethereum, but there's a giant asterisk because if you want to incorporate little activity, two well, Ethereum, the EVM as a whole greatly surpasses Solana there. But TJ, what do you think about Solana ever surpassing Ethereum as far as, you know, being the number one chain? What odds would you, would you put it less than 5%, less than 1 %? No, I think what you just said really matters there by what metric, right? You know, so you've got transactions, you've got daily active users, you've got a market cap, you've got volume, you know, there's so many different metrics to measure a chain by. So I could see it passing it in transactions one day. That's what it's designed for, right? If you get some good, if you get some good games running on it, you could see it hit higher active users, higher transaction or, you know, but volume, probably not, you know, like DeFi is going to most likely live on Ethereum for the foreseeable future. We talked about that a little bit last week. The ecosystem really matters there. And so I think what we're seeing right now in price gains in the short term, sure, it could, it could outperform there. And I think part of what we should talk about here today is why we saw all that price movement happening over the weekend. And I think, I think you've got my screen here, BJ, you can pull it in here, but some of the factors that came up on this article on Cointelegraph, why Solana Price woke up this week, it really has to do with, you know, obviously FTX getting reopened back up. A lot of people thinking there's less likely for Alameda and what's held on the FTX balance sheet, less likely to dump.
A highlight from If You Missed The Crypto Rally, Follow This EXACT Roadmap!
"If you're feeling lost or underexposed after the recent crypto rally, then you've come to the perfect video. Because today, I'm going to be outlining my roadmap for crypto riches in the next bull run, running you through the five steps that you can follow to build the ultimate bull market portfolio. Yes, you haven't exactly timed the bottom correctly if you're watching this video and you don't have all your entries, but no, you haven't missed out on the opportunity to capitalise next bull run, as I believe this market in the right conditions can go much, much higher. And we can see if we look at the YouTube views, which is pretty much the ultimate retail indicator, retail is still hardly back yet, Bitcoin is sitting above $37 ,000. So the amount of potential this market has to grow once retail comes back in leads me to believe there are still massive opportunities. So there's no need to panic, no need to FOMO if you haven't got your entries yet. But what you must do is come up with a sound accumulation plan to make sure that you're building your portfolio in the right way for the bull run. And that's exactly what I'm going to run you through. In today's video, there are many ways to make money in this market, you can scalp you can day trade, you can swing trade, you can airdrop farm. But in today's show, I'm going to be focusing on the investing side of things, the slightly more passive side things that doesn't require you to pick it up as a full time skill. Yes, it's going to take some active portfolio management, if you really want to build a successful portfolio, but it's not as time intensive as some of the other strategies that you might be following in the market today is purely focused on the long term investment side of things, how you can build an underlying portfolio to keep yourself steady and maximize upside for the next bull run, whilst also building a nice foundation for if you do want to trade and if you want to do anything additional that you can stack on top, I believe this strategy is complimentary to trading strategies in the market. So it's not a one or the other thing. But it is about setting up some nice foundations. So in light of that, where do we currently sit? Well, although the altcoin market has had a pretty big pump and Bitcoin has had a big pump, I believe we're still in an accumulation phase. Technically, we are still in the year pre halving. And typical Bitcoin bull run peaks don't tend to happen until the year after the Bitcoin halving, which would be 2025, late 2024, when things really start to pick up. Of course, every cycle is going to be a bit different. Maybe we are seeing things shift a little earlier, maybe not, maybe it shifts later, we can't time it exactly. But what we do know is generally, we are in an accumulation phase. So the goal of an accumulation phase is to stack as much crypto as possible via any means possible. The way you do this is obviously where all the nuance is. And this is where you're going to exhibit the difference between the 2x return next cycle and a 20x return next cycle. I think if you stick to the principles in today's video, there's a good chance that you can be aiming for that 10 to 20x portfolio value next cycle versus many people who are just simply going to ride it all the way up and then end up round tripping it all the way back down. Because accumulating through any means possible doesn't mean just accumulating after every pump. There's actually a strategy that I want you to follow in order to get better entries on altcoins. And that's what we're going to talk about now. So the first thing that you need to do if you want to build a successful portfolio is create a watch list. It sounds so simple, but it's something people often get wrong. They see these new coins cropping up on Twitter, they get tempted to ape in, when in reality, you should have a really organized for system having your watch list. So before you even think about buying, make sure you have a clear watch list identified. And this process can take months, this process can take years. But what happens is as you research, as you watch more videos, as you experience new things, as you learn things, you gradually refine your watch list, you get rid of coins that maybe aren't performing so well, and you add coins that you find out about that you're bullish on, and eventually you end up curating a really nice watch list. So the easiest method to start with when it comes to building a watch list, this is even before we get into any of the buying stuff, is to start with the individual sectors or narratives. So what I would do is I would pick two to three verticals you're most bullish on and start your research there. Niche down into two sectors that you really, really believe in. Some of the examples of the sectors that I find interesting are in front of you. I think AI is interesting, real world assets, gaming, ZK, LSDs, DEXs, SocialFi, NFTs, pick maybe two, three of these sectors and really start narrowing in on those sectors. I really like to build my portfolio around these major sectors because I believe crypto doesn't operate in isolation. There are many growth verticals which are going to help crypto achieve massive option, and there are certain growth verticals out of those that are going to end up outperforming. And the ones that I specifically like, I do want to concentrate a bit more of my portfolio allocation towards those narratives. For example, if you're really into crypto gaming, this could be a logical place to start research the gaming space and start positioning yourself there before you start creating a watch list for some of the other sectors. But of course, over time you'll build out a fully fleshed out watch list around all of your favourite narratives. So what I would do to build a watch list, I wouldn't do it in Apple Notes, although you can, I would do it in Trading View because Trading View has this amazing yet very simple feature which allows you to build individual watch lists. I would make a list called buy list or accumulation list. And what I would do is whenever I find a coin that I am interested in buying, or I know I want to buy a coin, I would just add it to my buy list because this will be your list that you know that you can look at every single day in order to monitor those coins and also get your entries on those coins. So having it all condensed in one place on Trading View is really handy. And what you can do is you can sort by colour in one of two ways. You can sort colour based on the narrative. So I can make let's say any AI project orange and any L2 green. Or you can also do it in terms of market cap, have like, you know, red for your large caps, green for your small caps, however you want to colour code it, you can do that to make it easier for you. So then you can go into your red list and your blue list etc. And actually sort by major caps, small caps, mid caps. So organisation is really key here in terms of making sure your watch is super organised because it's going to make it easier for you to actually keep track of this journey. I think most I know it sounds so simple, but most people don't do this. Most people don't have an organised watchlist or an organised spreadsheet. And this is the first step to successful investing, right? If your mind's not organised, how can you expect your portfolio to be organised? I mean, it's just so important. If you do want to fully maximise your portfolio management, because it's not just buying, that's the trick here. It's managing, it's awaiting allocations, etc. So it all starts with having good setups. So in order to do this, we'll head into step number two now. And that's creating a journal in Excel. So after you've got your watchlist into trading view, this is when you want to go a little bit deeper, because the trading view watchlist is the coins you want to buy. But on Excel, you start to enter some logic. So I'll give you an example of how I would do it. I would list all the coins I'm interested in buying. This is a sample portfolio. Then I would have a column which says my thesis, time horizon and invalidation and risks. So for example, for Ethereum, I've written down my thesis, which is it has a diverse ecosystem. It has first mover advantage versus other L1s. It has institutional interest, which is set to ramp up. And it has proven staying power within the industry. I've put my time horizon at five plus years because I view it as an extremely long term bet. Now, obviously, taking profits can happen at any time in between this period. But it's important to have a time horizon established because certain investments will be more trade based and certain investments will be more long term. And I would also put my invalidation slash risk. So for Ethereum, I've said the major risks are it can lose market share to other L1s like Solana, for example. It could have technical risks if there are any major upgrades gone wrong, because I know they're doing a lot of network upgrades. And another risk could be the invalidation of one of my main key thesis points, which is institutions are piling into Ethereum. Maybe they don't choose to or they opt for other coins or Bitcoin, etc. And this would be an invalidation. So I would go through my entire portfolio and I would enter in the thesis for each coin, time horizon and invalidation. Why? Because at any given moment, you're going to be able to go back and say, why did I buy Injective? Oh, it's because this is my thesis. Why did I buy Ethereum? Oh, it's because this is my thesis. And then before you panic sell to rotate into a new hot coin on crypto Twitter, you can actually go back to your thesis and look, okay, am I still bullish? Are the reasons I was bullish then still the reasons I'm bullish now? And you can answer yes or no. And you can tweak it over time. And this helps remind you why you bought a coin in the first place. Because so often people just buy coins because they're hyped. And then they're like, I actually don't understand what this coin does. Why am I holding this coin? Well, that's something you need to avoid in order to create a successful portfolio. Because if you don't have conviction in a coin, how are you going to hold it through the rough times? And who's to say you're not just going to rotate out of it if you don't believe in it to a hotter coin, a shinier coin, if your coins underperforming, right. So it's very important to have everything documented in an Excel or a Google Sheets or however you want to track it. So you actually it's like a trading journal, right? So you have your thesis clearly outlined for each coin. Another thing you can do to go a step further is actually conduct a SWOT analysis for each coin. This is actually an amazing practice that I highly recommend doing. And it basically means once a coins in your watch your trading view watch list, and once you're starting to populate it into the Excel, actually go fill out a form, it can be done on a on a Google Doc, and you can link that into your original Excel. So I'll show you what I mean, you can create another column here, which says SWOT, and then you can have the Google Doc link entered in here, click on that, it'll open up a new document, or if it's on your desktop, then you can link it to another document on your desktop, which basically means you'll you'll have an individual study, a SWOT analysis study for every single coin that you've actually gone and researched. And this is a great learning experience. Because when you're trying to find the strengths, let's say for Ethereum, the weaknesses, the opportunities, the threats, you're going to come across new ideas and new thought processes. And let's say for Ethereum, you can think of the strengths, you know, the opportunities, you know, some weaknesses, but you can't think of any threats. Well, that's a great gap in your understanding that you can explore and prod further. So you can look for counterpoints, you can look for content, which actually challenges your theory, you can ask people in the space. I mean, we I answer a lot of questions and DMS, etc, on Twitter, but I know Randals and the other hosts do as well. And also other experts in those niches, I think are also super accommodating if you have any interesting questions. So by filling out these sheets, you're going to get a much more detailed analysis on your favorite old coins. And this will help you develop your theses as well. So underrated little trick here is to actually do a SWOT analysis for each coin and link that into your spreadsheet. I'm basically trying to practice here healthy habits when it comes to portfolio building, because I can almost bet 99 % of you probably don't have an Excel that has in -depth theses and plans and invalidations for every single coin you hold. Most of you probably just ape into coins on a centralized exchange or maybe on DEXs and that's completely okay. Nothing wrong with that. But I'm saying if you want to maximize next cycle, it's time to level up. It's time to get serious and it's time to plan because if you don't, you'll be left behind and maybe some of you have the taste of being left behind from the past couple of weeks. I know a lot of people have been asking me, you know, have I missed it? Is it too late? Well, it's not too late, but it is going to be too late soon if you haven't got the right plan in place because things can happen super quick in this market as you've seen. So now for step number three out of the five step roadmap. Now it's time to determine position sizing. And this is the most subjective and nuanced step in this video because obviously how much risk you allocate to a low cap will be different from you to the next person, right? Because I don't know your financial situation. You might have a family you need to support, you can't take much risks. You might be young like me and be willing to, you know, risk it all and you don't really care. If you lose money, you may be super wealthy and you're only playing around with 5 % of your net worth. And if you blow it on crypto, you don't really care. To some people, you might really care about losing money, right? And you might want to be a little more conservative. So it really depends on your situation and your goals. Do you want to hit a million dollars next cycle? Do you want to hit a hundred K? Do you want to hit 10 million? Like, it really depends on your situation. So this is something only you're going to be able to work out. But I'll give you an example of how I would determine position sizing. So on the Excel, I would add a column for percentage portfolio weighting. So this number is going to represent your ideal position size for each coin. I'll show you what I mean. So for example, for Ethereum, I've allocated in the sample portfolio 20%. So $100 ,000 portfolio, that would be $20 ,000. And I've allocated percentages for all the other altcoins based on $100 ,000 portfolio. And you can tweak this number as you wish in order to get the representative figures when you make your own sheets. But what this is going to do is give you an idea of how you actually weight risk. Now, how do you determine how much percentage to allocate to each project? The easiest thing to do is break it down by either sector. So you can go like, let's say 30 % towards L1s, 15 % towards L2s, whatever verticals you're bullish on, as we discussed before, you'll allocate heavier to those. Verticals you're less bullish on, you'll allocate less heavy to them, right? But my preferred method is actually not by sector, depends how your brain works, but I prefer to do it by market cap. So large caps, I might allocate 40 % towards, mid caps, I might allocate 30 % towards, small caps, I might allocate 20 % towards and micro caps, anything under $10 million, I'll allocate 10 % towards. So this is one way that can help you structure it. What you can actually do is you can create a pie chart. So once you've got the size right of all the coins, you can create another column, link that to your allocation percentage, and then make a pie chart and actually see how much of your portfolio is mid caps, large caps, small caps, and micro caps. That's a big tip that I have for you, because that's going to help you get a view of how much risk you're taking with your portfolio. And look, as I said, for some people, your micro caps might be 30%. You just might want to hit the lottery next bull run and make 10 million or make nothing and you decide to do that and go, you know, you want to go 30, 40 % on micro caps, knowing that you could blow it all. But some people might prefer to go, no, I like, you know, I'm happy with the three to four x next cycle. I'm just going all large caps. I'm just going to go Ethereum and Solana and a couple others, and that's it. And, you know, make my maybe three, four, five x, I'm not interested in the 100x stuff. And that's completely fine as well. That's why it completely depends on your personal situation. And step number three is the most subjective one. But hopefully just by writing it down and allocating per sector, this gives you a good idea of how you want to structure your portfolio. And you'll get a pretty good feel once you start to track your portfolio in real time, as to how volatile your portfolio is, you might realize it's too volatile, you might realize you're not getting enough upside. So the beta is not correct on crypto pumps. So you'll actually know over time. And this isn't anything set in stone, you can tweak over time, if you want to go more risk on when the market's more aggressive, you can do that. If you want to less risk on when you want to be more conservative, you can do that. No one says your portfolio has to be set in stone all the time. This is where you allocate to fresh accumulation. So now you've assigned your weightings, it's time to plan your entries. How do you do this? Well, you have a trading view already set up. So this is going to be your number one port of call when it comes to market out levels. What I would do is I would go through that entire trading view by list that you've mapped out. And I would set key horizontal support levels on a high timeframe like the monthly or the weekly. And then I would draw in the levels where I would look to accumulate. So let's use dydx as an example, you can go into the weekly you can mark out clearly range lows a dollar range high was $2 .70. And your next major resistance level is at $4 .20. So your green accumulation zone is your ultimate support by this is your range low support. We may not get there. But this is where you want to put in limit orders, right? Your yellow box, you would have a an alert on trading view set up for when we hit this zone. So you'd create a little alert here, it'll ding on your phone, you can say as your message, you can say dydx buy zone. And what this will do is it will track when we drop back down into that zone. So you can and you can also set a limit order there. And then you have your red box, which is the same thing. So when you break above, you get that alert. When we come back down on confirmation, you can make a buyer. So for the green box, this is something you could have set a passive limit order on an exchange automatically do it, you don't even need to do it yourself. Just let it happen. If it gets back down there. For the orange and the red zones on altcoins, these are more active positions. So use the trading view alert function when you get alerted, then you can make your decision on exactly when you want to DCA. But you probably should stick to your plan once you outline it, right? If you if you make a plan that you want to accumulate on the retest of dydx range high, then when you actually get there to the chat to the point of accumulating, don't flinch, like you actually have to follow through on your plan. So what I would actually do is I would even write in some text here, I would go to settings, I would write in some text, I would say accumulate on retest, if x, y and z, you might have some technical parameters that that you want to like add in, if you're a bit more technical, like, you know, I want to see RSI up on the upswing, I want to make sure there's a four hourly confluence with the retest, whatever, all those technicals that you can kind of stack on top. But it's really good to actually write this down. So on trading view for each coin, you're going to have your levels on the weekly on the monthly, like dogecoin, for example, a major support level I would look at is the five seven level, this is an area that I would be interested in setting limit orders. So the more limit orders you can set the better if you can set limit orders on exchanges and just have some capital across a few different exchanges, have your limit order set and forget about it, that's the best, because then you're not going to panic when price gets there. A lot of the time what will happen is price will actually get down to the support and then people get bearish, right? They bearish here, they bearish here, they bearish here, they bearish here, they never want to accumulate in the support range. Then when the price starts pumping, they're like damn next dip I want to buy right and then it goes back down. And then when it dips down, you don't actually end up buying because you're psychology and the back and forth of wrestling with emotion and basically forcing you to buy in when you have a predetermined level that you want to buy in. For the DYDX example, you do have that predetermined level on range low, but because price is pumped, you now have to potentially look at buying on confirmation of the retest of key breaks of resistance levels flipped into support. So this is going to require a bit more nuance than just setting limit orders. But that's just a reflection of where that coins out every coins in a different zone, right? And every coin has a different scenario, like for fracks, you might say, okay, on the break of 760, I want to buy some fracks, because this clearly shows that it's reverse downtrend, for example, and then you would set that order once you've broken above. So it's not a perfect science. But what this does is it kind of forces you to stick to a strategy when the levels are in your trading view, and your plans are predefined before price gets there, then when price gets there, you should just be sticking to your plan. So you should be having a plan for the next six months on levels accumulation across a variety of coins. And you should know exactly when you're buying and you should know exactly what happens if price keeps pumping. What level are you actually going to get interested at again? So let's say the idea smashes through the highs, you know that you're probably going to buy the retest of range high on the high timeframe, right? So have all those scenarios planned out, then you're never gonna have to form it because even if price pumps, you've got a plan for that. And if price dumps, you've also got a plan for that you've got your limit orders, right? So you should be planned either way for either scenario. And if you want to get nuance with timing entries, you can even stack on additional tools like AI, etc. to get better entries. For example, Kyber AI, you guys know how I like the Kyber score in order to track momentum. When you do see a momentum swing on the Kyber score, that could also be an indicator that you can use in confluence with let's say the retest of that range high as we discussed before, in order to get your exact entry when your trading view alert goes off. And you can use all sorts of on chain data to snipe an even better entry. So it just really depends on your level. Some people prefer to be more passive and just DCA and whatever. But if you're a bit more active, you can start to stack these tools in order to get slightly better entries. And for more advanced market participants, a website like Kyber AI, I think is a good one. So there's a link in the description below to get beta access to Kyber AI for free. It's a free platform, if you're interested in that. So hopefully that accumulation plan makes sense. I think it just boils down to take advantage of fear. Typically, these support buys will happen after major sell offs. And the major sell offs typically represent the strongest opportunities in the market. I mean, just look at Solana. The two biggest FUD events were the two events that ended up being the best buying opportunities for SOL. And these were actually areas where I publicly said that I was buying Solana and they ended up being amazing buys up, you know, four to five x now. So buying fear in this market is definitely the strategy when you're aiming to build positions for the long term. Okay, let's go to step number five. Now, this is a really, really important one. This is keeping stables on the side for new projects. So I do this for two reasons. One, some of the best performing projects next cycle haven't even been released yet. Newer shiny objects tend to outperform their older counterparts, because there's less suppressory effect on price, due to the lack of underwater bag holders on new coins versus old coins. So what are old coins, there are a lot of bag holders, they can still explode, it doesn't mean they can't perform well. But just typically new performs can have that more aggressive thrust to the upside because there's less kind of dampening due to supply pressures, right. So keeping stable coins on the side for new projects is really important. Not only because of that, but because of the fact that new projects often solve the needs in the market that the old projects couldn't solve. So they usually launching and not all new projects are good, some new projects are rubbish, but really quality new projects are launching because they know that they fill a gap in the market that other projects couldn't, or they're improving on the technology that other projects have already established. So there's a benefit there as well. And the second reason why I like to keep stable coins aside is because it prevents you from recklessly rotating out of existing holdings. So if you have no capital, you're probably going to be more willing to sell let's say your Solana bag if it's not performing well to rotate into Stacks because Stacks is performing well. But if you have capital on the side, right, you have actual cash, you don't need to sell your Solana because you have cash that you can deploy into Stacks. So you're less likely to rotate out of your Solana into Stacks because you got capital to buy it. So one of the biggest tips for just not giving up on a bag too early is just keeping stable coins on the side. It's such a basic thing, but it's something so many people don't do. They get too greedy at certain times and don't hold enough cash. And then they get to risk off at certain times and hold too much cash. The key is keeping a balance. And I've been in both camps. There's been periods where I've held too much cash. And then there's I've kind of learned my mistake here. And for most people sitting around the 20 % mark in cash is not a terrible idea in terms of your crypto portfolio. Once again, this comes down to your risk tolerance, etc. As long as you have something that prevents you from FOMOing into these shiny coins with old positions, because this happens every bull run, you want to FOMO into the new coins. But it's just better if you if you're not forced to sell. Forced selling is horrible, often leads to a really subpar result in terms of your exit price. Much better just to have fresh capital used that's and reserved solely for the purpose of buying into newer coins. So this isn't to say that you can't tweak allocations over time. I think you should always tweak allocations. As prices pump, you can take profits, rotate into other alts, take profits into USD. As income comes in from other income sources, you can put that into the market. Some coins you might realize, okay, say is not really realizing its vision. Maybe you don't think they're executing very well. The team makes some mistakes. You can actually delete that off your watch list at certain points and add a new coin that you think's better. Like there's nothing saying the portfolio you build now has to be set in stone. But there's something to be said for starting to plan and having a system. Because once you have a system, then you can plug and play any old coins into that system. Once you have your watch list, have your Excel, it's easy to make small modifications versus overhauling the whole thing once every few months. It's better to just tweak it slowly over time. And I think it's actually very smart to make tweaks over time, because that enables you to be adaptive and it means you're not always stuck in old positions that might not be so favorable when there's new trends in the market. So always maintain adaptivity, but don't be rash. That's pretty much how I want to summarize that. I want to give a quick shout out to one of our official show sponsors now, which is SmartX. They actually did $5 .1 million in trading volume this week. So if you are looking to farm, they have a very good system which reduces the negative effects of impermanent loss, and in some cases can lead to impermanent gain across their LPs, across the networks Ethereum, Polygon, Arbitrum, BNB and Base. They recently just jacked up the APRs on Ethereum and BNB. They lowered them on Polygon and Arbitrum. So if you do want to look for some of the opportunities with additional multipliers now, you can look for example, on the ETH side on some of these pools, which have a higher APR. And as I said, it's not your typical AMM. They have a proprietary algorithm which makes impermanent loss less of a headache compared to other AMMs, for example, like Uniswap. And if you go onto their homepage of their website, and you click on simulate the algorithm, you can actually compare the performance of pools compared to pools on Uniswap. So you can scroll through and get some examples to see how SmartX actually works in practice, which is a nice feature as well. So there's a link in the description if you want to yield farm on SmartX, or even if you want to swap, it's also a DEX, of course, that can get you some decent swap rates too. And yeah, just another great week of trading volume for SmartX. So well done to the team over there. And looking forward to keeping on supporting you in the future on these shows. So I hope you enjoyed this video. I hope you learned something. And even if one person watches today's video and builds a nice system, and ends up benefiting that from that next bull run that it was worth my time because I think 99 % of people will be too lazy to do the stuff I talked about today. Because I get it, it's easier sitting back and being lazy. But for the ones that are willing to put in the time and be proactive, you're going to be the ones I think that end up really reaping the rewards of this. So well done to you if that's what you're about to do. And I will see you in my next show, which will probably be on Tuesday. See you later. Peace out.
A highlight from BlackRock Bitcoin ETF in January | Larry Fink Is Confident
"All right, so things are cooking in the market right now, Bitcoin, Ethereum, what we're doing and watching with Solana. We'll break down a lot of things for you guys today, but it's all going to be built around the narrative of the ETF, when and how much of an impact it will have on the markets. My name is Paul Baron. Welcome back to The Tech Path. All right. A couple of posts we'll get into. I want to kind of flow along here. There's going to be a lot happening today. Before I get started, I want to thank our sponsor, and that is iTrust Capital, if you guys are looking at long -term holding. In an IRA, this is one of the places to check out. You can hold Bitcoin over there, precious metals, altcoins, all sorts of things. It's all self -directed over there, very easy to use. All you have to use is our link down below. Get a $100 funding reward if you decide to go in on that. Low fees too on your transactions inside, no fees on a monthly. So just think about that. Let's go over to a couple of tweets here. I want to start off with Mike Allred, or Alfred. Mike had a very interesting tweet here, and I follow this guy. I would say he's a Bitcoiner, and he had a really good position point here on the first of November. FOMC press conference over, Jerome is off stage. Markets are not following the familiar script of dumping through the close. This is the turning point. Yields will fall, the dollar will top, and Bitcoin and equities will rip through the year end. Basically, Mike called it, and I think he's exactly right, what we did see in terms of yields starting to fall. In fact, we saw a fairly significant jump down in yields. If you look at what Joe Consorti was talking about, this is a good example, people are losing faith in US creditworthiness even after the 10 -year yield has fallen by 51 bips. So that to me is some of these nuances that happen in the traditional markets that start to move things around. It also starts to loosen up capital on the sidelines, and that's what you're watching right now. Then if you look at the comparison of where things are going around Bitcoin, because some people are saying Bitcoin could make it to 50K, and part of this will look at, of course, the ETF, the likelihood of getting an ETF before the end of the year. Even though our friends at Bootbar still believe that that's like a 70 % probability, I feel like this is probably going to roll into that January 10th date, and when it does, I think that is the key. Now, what does that mean between now and then? I think that is the big question for sure. Fox Biz says BlackRock is growing increasingly confident in the spot Bitcoin ETF approval by January. Listen, they're having conversations with the SEC, there's a lot of back and forth dealing with this. Ed Gasparino talking about this. Everybody on Wall Street is talking about this. If this does not happen, this would be one of the biggest fails, I think, on Wall Street in combination with the SEC, maybe that we've ever seen in the history of Wall Street. Other things to be watching for, and this is something that Seifert and I talked about the other day when he was on. Just in, French investment bankers receive an email from BlackRock promoting a webinar for their iShares that swap ETF products on November 15th. This is within eight days of a spot Bitcoin ETF approval window. This is something that Seifert and I talked about, Bloomberg analysts, and the questions that have kind of been brewing is that there's been a lot of advertising, they're called RFPs, and if you're in the media business, you know what that is, but there's been a lot of RFPs coming in asking about certain windows of time and how quickly you can activate ads. This to me, what is it? Because normally this is a year -end kind of thing, and year -end, sure, there could be a scenario where people are just blowing the rest of a budget that they've already allocated, but these seem to be very targeted and very specific, and when you get those kinds of RFPs, which we've received, then I'm always questioning, what are they looking for? What exactly is going on? That usually tells me there's a campaign brewing, and what else is out there right now that could be brewing in terms of campaigns when it comes down to marketing, just like Seifert said, there's going to be a marketing bloodbath of who's going to try to position first, whether it's BlackRock, 21 shares, Fidelity, all the ones that we have out there in terms of the spot ETF. Here's another topic on Bitcoin. Here's how high Bitcoin could soar in the first year of its bull cycle. There's a course coming in from Michael Van de Poppe. A couple of things he's pointing to right here, we're getting ourselves into a period of the first year of the bull cycle, means that most likely we're going to see a high of around 50 to 55K. I would agree with that to a certain extent. There are some things, if you're not in our diamond circle, our most recent post where Evan and I actually did two analyses on this. Evan did an analysis on the TA side. We did an analysis on the sentiment side. Looking at the long -term sentiment run of Bitcoin in general, especially if you look at how it compares to other assets, and you compare that to new activity, meaning new people talking about a particular investment like Bitcoin, it's starting to ramp up. So does that mean that we could be seeing entry -level participants or people that haven't been active for a very long time coming back in the space, which could contribute to these kind of numbers in terms of 50 to 55K? We're also going to have a period where we have the altcoins are starting to wake up substantially. Obviously, I think everybody's watching Solana, Matic, Avalanche today. Those are all altcoins, and they're all in a very positive mode right now. And of course, Ethereum clipped over 2100. Most likely, we could see a 22 by weekend. So there's a lot happening there. Question will be, in between, are we going to see altcoins do really well? And we're starting to see some momentum. Will that last? And does it act like a typical altcoin season? That's the question mark that I think a lot of people are trying to compare, because if you look at past cycles versus this one and the one we possibly are moving into coming out of a bear market, a lot of people look at it in a different way because of all this new speculation around ETFs, regulation, structured capital, the coming of age of this asset class, all those things that did not exist in the last run between 2019 and 21. So at this point, confirmation of the bear market is over almost close to 100%, especially with the breakout of 28K. That was the one that basically held the 200 -week EMA. So definitely moving forward for sure.
A highlight from ETH Spot ETF Will Trigger A Huge Rally! (Buy These Altcoins)
"This has changed everything for the crypto market. News just broke that the iShares Ethereum Trust has just been registered in Delaware. The exact same thing happened for the Bitcoin Spot ETF, where BlackRock filed for registration just before they officially registered for the Bitcoin Spot ETF. So this leads me to believe that an Ethereum Spot ETF application is looming. And of course, if that's the case, then this could open up the door for a new trade in not only Ethereum, but also the Ethereum ecosystem. Will Clemente also pointed out a good point here that if BlackRock is feeling comfortable now filing for an ETH Spot ETF, then the likelihood that a Spot Bitcoin ETF will get approved is now much higher because obviously they wouldn't be filing if they didn't have confidence, right? So I want to talk about why this could be so massive, not only for the crypto market, but also for the altcoin market, because you have to keep in mind Ethereum is the leader of the alts and it has been Bitcoin's time to shine over the last few months, but with now signs of Ethereum starting to reverse versus BTC with Ethereum dominance increasing and now getting this BlackRock ETF filing, there could be some great news for Ethereum around the corner and definitely trades in the ecosystem that we've got to take a look at. The first thing I want to acknowledge before I get into specific altcoins, by the way, one of the altcoins I'm going to show you at the end of today's video is one of my favorite altcoins in the crypto market at the moment, is the current Bitcoin flush that we just saw. So open interest was steadily increasing, meaning the amount of leverage that was being taken by market participants to the long and the short side, but mostly the long side was increasing. But what we did see is a massive flush, a huge liquidation cascade where a lot of the late longs were wrecked. A lot of the altcoins also had massive weeks down, especially on a liquid alt. Some of these were down 20 to 25%, but the market did slowly end up recovering. And what we did see following this massive liquidation event is open interest essentially getting extremely wiped out to the point where OI is as low as it's been since October 24th, the lowest in over two weeks time. So the market completely flushed out all the leverage. And what I would say about this event is it's extremely healthy. There are a couple lessons here. One, obviously don't take aggressive leverage so you can be subject to these types of wicks. But two, setting limit orders in this market can be hugely advantageous. Let's look at a coin like Pendle. Look at Pendle here. It actually ended up dropping like 16 % just in a minute. And anyone that had limit orders for this coin, so people that wanted to buy the dip on Pendle, their limit orders could have been filled, albeit not all the orders would have gotten filled because they had a plan. So definitely when it comes to old coins, have a plan where you lay out your limit orders on your exchange. In case there are these flushes, then you can catch a nice bit at a key level. And using Pendle as the example here, you can see that this is a major level four Pendle as well that it hit the 84 cent region being a major resistance level newly turned into support. So this is just one example of why setting limit orders in the crypto market is a good idea. Now what about Ethereum? Well, Ethereum in light of the BlackRock ETF filing or the iShares registration in Delaware, it's now starting to reverse on the ETHBTC chart. And you guys know that I've been looking at this chart as pretty much my holy grail of Ethereum and altcoins because this chart tells me whether Ethereum is gaining dominance or losing dominance versus Bitcoin in terms of Ethereum as a trending coin. So what you can see here is Ethereum is now starting to break or at least attempting to break back into this range. So break back above and make this five five level into support. In previous times, for example, in June 2022, it did deviate below and then it ended up consolidating above and having a push to the range high of the ETHBTC chart at the 0 .082 level. So what we're seeing here is that Ethereum deviating below again looks like it wants to do something similar to what it did back in July 2022. The major level that ETH needs to break though once it holds back above the support line is this orange line here, which essentially indicates the trend for Ethereum. If it starts to break back above and make a higher low, that would be amazing for Ethereum as it shows ETH is gaining dominance versus Bitcoin. This BlackRock ETF may just be the thing that spurs on the Ethereum narrative. So that's what I'm looking at in terms of ETH. But what are the best altcoins to take advantage of this trade? Well, I actually don't think it's ETH. I think there are proxy bets to the ETH ecosystem, so ETH beta plays, which could outperform. Let's discuss a few of them in today's video. The first one I want to discuss is Lido and Rockerpool because these two are your ETH liquid staking plays. They also got flushed out massively during this liquidation cascade that we just talked about. So Lido, for example, went all the way up to 2 .4. It did end up coming back down to 1 .9. It's now consolidating in the 2 .1 region. You are watching this video two hours after I'm recording, so maybe it's somewhere in this range. But nonetheless, Lido is now starting to consolidate above a major support level at the 1 .98 region on the daily chart. So Lido for me looks good as an ETH beta play. So does Rockerpool, especially if it breaks above this $31 level on the weekly. Your next target is its range high of $40. So Rockerpool starting to wake up. Lido also looking good. One I'm also looking at is Arbitrum. Once again, this flush took it all the way back down to its support level at the $0 .92 zone. But Arbitrum looks like it wants to break above its major resistance at $1 .1. If it can break above, then we know its next target is 1 .31. Something interesting to note about Arbitrum is that it adheres to market structure really well. A lot of these new coins like Pepe, Arbitrum, they tend to stick to market structure because everyone's fulfilling prophecy. And I guess at the end of the day, this is what TA is, where Arbitrum actually obeys these levels super well. So these are the levels I am using in terms of Arbitrum. Something else I'm doing when it comes to these coins is I'm using Kyber AI to get better entries. So let's say, for example, it does close above retests on the daily, the 1 .1 level. If I want to get an entry into Arbitrum, what I would do is I would search up Arbitrum onto Kyber AI, because it's going to tell me what the trend is like in terms of the on -chain analytics. And I would see here whether the Kyber score is in bullish territory. If it's in bullish territory, this indicates that the market is willing to bid on Arbitrum based on a variety of factors, such as the number and types of trades, trading volume, net flow to whale wallets, etc. So I would use this Kyber score, I would use this data to my advantage to get more confluence to line that up with a break and a consolidation of trend. What I do like to see though, as one general rule of thumb when it comes to Kyber scores and using Kyber AI, is when you see these patterns here, where you get bearish signals starting to turn into bullish signals. So it might go from bearish, it might go up to the 70 to 80 Kyber score region. Once it starts getting into this region, that is assigned to me after two four -hourly closes above this level that you will likely start to see it target the very bullish territory, which is the 90 plus region as we saw happens in this occasion. So especially in the lower timeframes, this is a really nice metric to use when you're trading and you can use it for a variety of alts. So that's how I'm using Kyber AI and you can also use it using the link in the description to sign up for early access. I discussed at the start of the video, there was an altcoin that I was eyeing specifically as an outperformer in this category and that's actually Pendle. Pendle is super interesting because it has exposure to a few narratives. It has exposure to Arbitrum, which is an ETH L2 narrative because of the ecosystem fund that is currently occurring on Arbitrum. So a lot of the protocols are getting grants that they're distributing to their governance holders, which is super bullish for Arbitrum specific protocols. That's why I mentioned Arb as well as a play earlier in the video, but Pendle has exposure to that ecosystem. It also utilizes layer zero technology for its multi -chain strategies. So this is also interesting because it could be a proxy play for the layer zero airdrop as well. And it also gets some of the LSD fi rotation given the fact that Pendle is one of the platforms where you can trade your yield for LSDs and stake your yield. So let's say your staked Ethereum to earn an additional yield on the Pendle platform. So it kind of covers three narratives at once. One is the L2 narrative, one is the ETH LSD fi narrative and another one is the layer zero narrative. It's showing a lot of strength here on the chart and it was actually one of the altcoins that was bought up most quickly during this liquidation cascade here, which indicates to me that it's one of the strongest coins in the market. You can always learn a lot in the market when the market drops and it bounces. Always try and track which coins bounce the most. The coins that bounce the most, typically they are the best longs when it is time to long and Pendle is definitely showing its strength here. Yes, it's pumped a lot. I would love to be able to get some accumulation opportunities on major pullbacks, but for the traders out here, I think you can have a lot of fun trading this token if you're looking to long because it is looking like one of the strongest tokens in the market. I want to give a shout out quickly to one of my major sponsors of the show, which is SmartX. If you want to earn any yield across a variety of layer two ecosystems, but Arbitrum included, like we've just been talking about, you can head over to the platform using the link in the description and get access to some of the strongest APRs in crypto. But not only that, some of the most competitive risk adjusted returns in crypto due to the fact that they have introduced a mechanism to lower or mitigate the negative effects of impermanent loss. You can see here versus platforms like Uniswap on a typical Ethereum pair, SmartX often gets the much better results due to the mechanism that they've introduced. And you can look at on the homepage of the SmartX website using their compare function, how SmartX LPs track versus other LPs here. And you can also simulate the algorithm to see how their LPs actually perform better on chain versus a lot of other pairs, as you can see in front of you. So if you do want to earn some of the strongest yields in the market across any of the ecosystems that you can see on screen, you can use the link in the description below. They've built a nice product. And if you've used it before, you would know how smooth it is to use as well. So thank you to SmartX and thank you to Kyber AI for sponsoring this video. I hope you learned something. Definitely keeping my eye on the ETH beta plays at the moment. I think this could be a watershed moment for the Ethereum narrative because it was dead. Let's be honest, it was just Bitcoin. ETH was lagging. This could finally be what Ethereum needs to start to kick into gear here. Definitely keep your eye on that ETH BTC chart. I will see you in the next video. Hope you have a lovely rest of your day. Good luck trading in this crazy market. There's definitely lots of money to be made. Peace out.
A highlight from ETF Excitement Drives Bitcoin Past $36,000
"Welcome back to The Breakdown with me, NLW. It's a daily podcast on macro, Bitcoin, and the big picture power shifts remaking our world. What's going on, guys? It is Thursday, November 9th, and today we are talking about Bitcoin's breakout and all of the bullish sentiment shift. But, before we get into that, if you are enjoying The Breakdown, please go subscribe to it, give it a rating, give it a review, or if you want to dive deeper into the conversation, come join us on the Breakers Discord. You can find a link in the show notes or go to bit .ly slash breakdown pod. Hello friends. Well, yesterday, as you know, we pivoted to bullishness, put the SPF trial behind us, and faced firmly forward, and boy, has today extended the excitement. So much so that I'm actually not even really covering the biggest bull thing from today, which is BlackRock registering an Ethereum spot ETF that happened just as I was finishing, so I am sure that that will be front and center tomorrow. For now, let's kick off today with a tweet from Steven Lubka, who's the Managing Director and Head of Private Clients and Family Offices at Swan. He tweets, I love how Bitcoin itself determines how busy my day is going to be. Today is going to be crazy. Thanks for almost cracking $37k overnight. So let's start this report with the ETF speculation. Grayscale has opened talks with the SEC in an attempt to finally move forward with the conversion of the Grayscale Bitcoin trust into an ETF. Grayscale sources said the company is now in active discussions with the SEC's division of trading and markets and the division of corporate finance. Both divisions play a key role in deciding ETF applications. Now, Grayscale, of course, won its lawsuit against the SEC in August, with the court ruling that the SEC must reconsider the firm's application to convert GBTC. If the SEC wanted to deny the application, it would need to come up with some new reasons after their existing rationale was found to be arbitrary and capricious. Craig Salm, Grayscale's chief legal officer, said, Right now, we're just laser focused on constructively re -engaging with trading and markets. There are still things that have to be worked through. He added that, Overall, it's been good engagement and it's a matter of when, not a matter of if anymore. Grayscale CEO Michael Sonenshine also confirmed that discussions with the SEC have commenced. He told Bloomberg that his team have been busy filing the required documents, which quote, When pressed for a timeline for approval, Sonenshine chuckled, noting that, Timelines are certainly not something that has been discussed, but what I can tell you is that the SEC is constructively engaging at the moment. We remain optimistic that we will get through any final hurdles that need to be there and our investors will finally get what they've been waiting for. Now, the market, for its part, clearly thinks the conversion is likely to be approved. The GBTC discount has now closed to 12 % from over 40 % back in June. It's the smallest discount since November of 2021. Now, widening to the rest of the pool of potential ETFs, Bloomberg analysts reported that the SEC has a brief eight -day window to approve all 12 spot Bitcoin ETFs at the same time, which begins today. ETFs are generally not approved while they are still open for public comment following an SEC decision. That comment period concluded today for seven of the ETFs, which were delayed as a group in late September. James Safart, one of the Bloomberg ETF analysts, followed up in a Twitter thread explaining that, If the agency wants to allow all 12 fliers to launch, as we believe, this is the first available window since Grayscale's court victory was affirmed. Now on November 17th, comment periods will reopen for three of the applications from GlobalX, Hashdex, and Franklin Templeton when they hit their next SEC deadline for approval or delay. That would leave the SEC able to approve only nine of the 12 applications until January. Safart, with some assistance from finance lawyer Scott Johnson, added some extra detail to the situation. They explained that there are two approvals required before the ETFs can begin trading. The SEC would need to approve the proposed rule changes, and then a separate division of the regulator would need to sign off on product disclosure forms known as an S -1. Johnson tweeted, If there's a hypothetical approval this week, there's probably minimum a month and probably a couple before any ETF actually launches. S -1's still under review and no real hard deadline for that process. Though I consider it more a formality at that stage. Would be a wild period. Safart agreed, stating that possible and even likely that there could be weeks or even months between approval and launch. This is in line with comments made by Valkyrie CIO Stephen McClurg last week, who said, A late November approval likely means a February launch. Now his view was that the SEC would likely wait until the new year to ask firms to put finishing touches on their S -1 filings before they were given the green light. Adding a little more intrigue to the process, SEC chair Gary Gensler released another one of his little videos. This one was an explanation of the Division of Corporation Finance, the group which has recently been giving feedback on ETF applicants on their S -1s. Gensler emphasized that the SEC is a quote merit neutral regulator. He explained that the basic bargain of US capital markets is that quote, investors get to decide what risk they take so long as public companies make complete and truthful disclosure. Now of course, the timing of this could be nothing, but some viewed it as a meaningful indication of what has been going on behind closed doors at the SEC. Senior Bloomberg ETF analyst Eric Balcones tweeted, Could be a coincidence, but probably not. They did preapproval educational stuff ahead of BITO approval as well. Also, I feel like this is his way of saying, look, we aren't endorsing these ETFs, we're just trying to disclose all the possible risks so you can decide. Hands washed. Investor Adam Cochrane reiterated the point, tweeting, Usually this kind of stuff is posted by the SEC as like a disclaimer before they approve things they don't like. For example, last time was four days before they approved the BITO futures ETF. We guess this puts Bitcoin ETF approvals at less than one week now. As one final little indication that things could be moving behind the scenes at the SEC, commissioners and staff attended a closed door meeting this afternoon. The agenda included quote, institution and settlement of administrative proceedings and resolution of litigation claims. These kinds of meetings are held as needed and we don't have any further detail to confirm the commissioners are voting on ETF approvals, but holding a meeting is a much stronger indicator than not holding a meeting. To sum up, analysts' current expectations is that the entire cohort of ETFs are likely to be approved at the same time so as not to pick winners and that this could all happen as soon as this week. After that approval, disclosure statements will need to be finalized before the ETFs can be launched, which seems likely to take weeks, if not months. Notably, Bloomberg analysts have not adjusted their odds for full approvals in January up from 90%. They're also leaving their odds at an approval for this year at 70%. There's currently no real expectation that ETFs will begin trading until early next year. All commentary has carried a very prominent disclaimer that approvals are far from guaranteed, but between all of these little indications, market sentiment is clearly pointing towards a Bitcoin ETF approval. Crypto trader AvocadoToast tweeted, ETF thesis is pretty simple, 90 % odds of approval by Jan 10th could happen any day really. Announcement, immediate FOMO to speculate, scramble to search for ETF tokens on DexTools screener and Twitter, find top choice ETF because first mover most liquid highest market cap most trustworthy one, mash buy button candle loads. We all know this is going to happen. Let's just skip the song and dance. Blockworks Jason Yanowitz said, this market still severely underestimates how insane it will be to have Bitcoin ETF approvals and Bitcoin having within 60 days of each other will be obvious in hindsight. Now all of this ETF speculation has of course been extremely positive for Bitcoin price action. The market tested the $36 ,000 level for the third time late on Wednesday evening and effortlessly broke through. Bitcoin settled at a new level of around $36 ,700 overnight. Now Matrixport said earlier on Wednesday that they expected the breakout above $36 ,000 to be imminent. Following on from that correct prediction, the firm said that they believed a sustained rally to follow. Their report stated, the Santa Claus rally could start at any moment with a steady increase in buyers during US trading hours and an ongoing attempt for Bitcoin to break out. We could see prices rallying into the end of the month and year. Matrixport included some macro commentary recognizing that this Bitcoin run has been supported by dovish federal reserve messaging, reducing long -term debt issuance from the treasury and a continued slowdown in inflation. They noted that above $36 ,000 there's a lot of fresh air considering how rapidly prices collapsed in early 2022. The report stated that quote, a break above $36 ,000 could propel Bitcoin toward our next technical resistance level at $40 ,000 potentially reaching $45 ,000 by the end of 2023. Now along these same lines, the Chicago Mercantile Exchange or CME, which hosts the highest volume market for Bitcoin futures in the US has continued to see a rush of trading. Open interest for Bitcoin futures has increased by 35 % over the past four weeks, moving above 100 ,000 Bitcoin for the first time. Indeed, the CME is snapping at the heels of Binance as the dominant market for Bitcoin futures trading. Binance currently has a little over 24 % of the market while the CME is closing in with 22 .7%. Now, according to K33 research, the two week price consolidation around 35 ,000 has primed bullish sentiment. Over the last two weeks, dips have been bought and Bitcoin has remained in a $2 ,000 range. That range, of course, is now broken to the upside, but the analysis still seems relevant. K33 observed that with Bitcoin range bound, altcoins have had a chance to run. We've seen numerous tokens achieve gains above 10 % in the past two weeks, which has brought the total crypto market cap back up to $1 .4 trillion for the first time since the Luna collapse. Bitcoin dominance softened slightly as a result of this altcoin run, but remained above 50%. Now, maybe most interestingly, volumes during US trading hours are dominating the market, vastly outstripping other regions. Premiums on front month options have exploded with calls settled at the end of November showing a 16 % annualized premium. ETF inflows continue to be strong, with the pro shares Bitcoin futures ETF BITO just receiving its third highest weekly inflow since November 2021. Now, despite the rush of activity in derivatives markets, Bitcoin's implied volatility remains below its three year average. This indicates that markets are priced for slow, grinding price action rather than sudden spikes.
A highlight from MASSIVE RIPPLE XRP NEWS!! HSBC METACO, RIPPLE PAYMENTS XRP LEDGER, AFRICA EXPANSION
"Welcome 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. Well, folks, I'm recording this in the airport because I'll be traveling over the next few days. So content will be a bit late, but I wanted to share the following bullish news. It's incredible around Ripple and XRP. First, I want to start off with Bitcoin, though, because CME futures open interest just surpassed 100 ,000 Bitcoin for the first time ever. Are you bullish yet, folks? I think we see the bull market on the horizon. It's going to take some time. We've got the Bitcoin halving next year. We also have the Bitcoin spot ETF approvals around the corner. So I think the markets recognize this and we are seeing bullish activity. Now let's jump into the Ripple news. First, we got Ripple introducing what's called Ripple payments. The next evolution of Ripple's payments product, delivering a licensed end to end solution for financial institutions and SMEs with 70 plus payout markets, expanded crypto liquidity options, integration with the XRP ledger, decentralized exchange and much more. So they did a full breakdown on their websites. But here we're just seeing Ripple expanding and the use of the XRP ledger is involved. So a lot of the folks who've been saying that XRP will never be used, banks, no one will ever use XRP. Now it's pretty clear what's happening and I'm bullish on XRP. It has the clear path, the clear runway with the SEC lawsuit wrapping up recently. And it has the clarity to go hit new all time highs in the next bull market. So let me give you some of the details here from their blog posts. Ripple has received money transmitter licenses across numerous US jurisdictions, allowing Ripple payments to offer its products and services within those jurisdictions. With single onboarding, customers are now able to access nearly 100 % of global payout coverage to more than 70 payout markets through Ripple's international payments network. A new integration with the XRP Ledger's native decentralized exchange will buttress global liquidity options for Ripple customers, streamlining customer onboarding into new markets and improving product performance. Through newly expanded liquidity options, Ripple payments can fulfill customers' liquidity needs on demand 24 -7, 365 days per year. Huge news. Now, remember Medeco, a firm that Ripple has invested in, and then they backed out from purchasing, but they're still an active investor, but here's some big news they put out today. HSBC that announced it will be working with Medeco as it plans to launch a new digital assets custody service for institutional clients who invest in tokenized securities. We've been talking about the token economy, everything on the blockchain, assets, securities, real estate, you name it, everything running on the blockchain. And Ripple, of course, is in the mix here, right? With HSBC, a bank, of course, and Medeco. So here's a photo of the team together, Monica Long, who I've had on the podcast, and we'll try to get her back on soon. So huge things happening in the market, folks, and even Medeco's CEO weighed in on this, what HSBC is going to be doing. And obviously, like I said, Ripple is in the mix, and you can imagine the XRP Ledger will be used for tokenization, right? Because you can tokenize pretty much anything on the XRP Ledger. Now we also have news that Ripple has formed a new partnership with Onafriq, if I'm saying that right, O -N -A -F -R -I -Q, which will utilize Ripple payments. Our crypto -enabled payments technology to open up three new payments corridors between Africa and the rest of the world. Folks, I see global expansion happening here. So there you have it, folks, XRP Ledger is in the mix of all of this, and Africa is one of the biggest markets out there with many countries within Africa who have emerging economies and are using blockchain tech and much more. So huge, huge partnership here. I hope you see what's happening. As I said before, I am bullish on XRP. Now the SEC has filed their opposition to Binance's motion to dismiss, and Paul Grewal, chief legal officer at Coinbase, weighed in on this. I'm not going to read through everything, but a TLDR here. He highlights the SEC asserts that a virtually unlimited flexibility of the securities laws grants it a complete authority over crypto exchanges. That misrepresents the law. So Paul goes into details, but that's the TLDR. The SEC, once again, not abiding by the law, they've been called out by the judges in many different cases, being called arbitrary and capricious in the grayscale lawsuit. So we got to keep fighting, we got to keep exposing scumbag regulator, Gary Gensler. So we got to get on social media, contact our representatives and much more. Now we've got news here that Polygon and NEAR, the NEAR protocol, are bringing ZKWASM, so WASM to life if you want to call it that. So the ZKWASM prover research is underway and expected to launch next year. Let me give some details on what this is. This means that developers who build with Polygon's chain development kit, CDK and open source code base will soon be able to use the ZKWASM as a prover. As you all know, with zero knowledge proof technology, you know, everybody's trying to get this going. It's going to be the next layer in how we transact on the blockchains in ZK technology. A prover refers to the party trying to show a claim is accurate to a verifier without revealing the information itself. A verifier is responsible for acknowledging that the information is accurate. So it's great to see these two blockchains working together, NEAR and Polygon. I don't hold any of the NEAR tokens. I do have Matic in my portfolio. I am bullish on Polygon Matic. They're being used by quite a few brands with NFTs and Web3. So this is pretty interesting. We also got news here that decentralized AI platform Ritual lands $25 million in seed funding. We're seeing capital flowing into the market, both into the infrastructure, companies building the infrastructure, as well as the tokens. The Ritual is the brainchild of Web3 investor, Neeraj Pant, who funded projects like Eigenlayer with Anselana and the Keshpoti, Quant, and then builder at data analytics company Palantir. Over the last year, AI companies have witnessed significant growth that offers new experiences, products, and a new source of revenue, Pant said. Although this may be the case, there are also significant problems taking place. So one of the things I've been talking about is that blockchain is gonna be a solution to help police AI, as we are seeing a lot of deep fakes when it comes to media, content, video, you name it, that's gonna be an issue. So blockchain will help verify is the source of this content and this information coming from the actual source, or is it from AI and something that was spinned up by a nefarious actor or whatever it may be. And look, we're also gonna need to have AI police AI itself. So we'll see how things go, but blockchain is the way to improve that verifiability around different content and the rise of deep fakes and so forth. Finally, as our sponsor is Uphold, one of the great crypto exchanges out there, they have plus 260 cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin, all the top old coins, they're fully reserved, secure. I've interviewed the CEO, CFO, so I trust this platform, I've been using it since 2018. So if you'd like to learn more about Uphold, check out the link in the description. And actually a quick note, they're doing a 50 ,000 XRP giveaway this month. So if you conduct at least $20 in trades, every $20 in trade that you make, you get an entry to win that prize. So check it out. Link will be in the description.
A highlight from Wyre: Another crypto payment processor involved in fraud
"Welcome back, everyone. I am Cas Pianci. I'm joined, as usual, by my partner in crime. We've already recorded an episode today, so we're just going to jump right into it. We're going to talk about a company called Wire. Wire spelled W -Y -R -E, weird company, wound down in June of this past year. But yeah, I want Bennett to kind of walk us through this. He wanted to record an episode about this. And I think it is, once you delve into the weeds of it a bit, it's pretty fascinating. Wire is a cryptocurrency payment processor, one of the most common targets of our eye around this channel. And it was, like many cryptocurrency payment processors, seeming to do things a little unusually. And part of this story, the beginning of this story in my mind, involves Ryan Breslow, who I've made a couple videos about on this channel, but we've never done a full episode on him because, frankly, he's not that important. Ryan Breslow has a couple of different companies. One was called Eco. Eco was a company that said it could earn its users yield, and it claimed to do this by lending to people like Goldman Sachs and Fidelity, but was actually lending to people like Wire and BlockFi. And so that's how Eco was making its yield for its customers. That was a Ryan Breslow company, but so was Bolt, the one -click payments company that at one point was valued at like $11 billion or something crazy before a New York Times investigation revealed that they had misrepresented what they were able to do to people in order to get them to sign and then misrepresented the nature of those relationships in order to get other people to sign. Before Bolt was exposed for that, they put in a $1 .5 billion offer for Wire, making it at the time one of the most valuable cryptocurrency acquisitions of all time. What makes this even stranger is that this acquisition was announced in April of 2022. One month before that, in March of 2022, Ryan's other company, Eco, had notified users that they were moving off of Wire and on to Prime Trust. So one company moves off in March, April they announce they're going to buy the company, and even more interesting, Eco didn't actually get all their funds moved off until the end of May. Shortly after that, in September, it's announced that the deal's not going to happen. Bolt backs away, and a couple months after that, very end of the year, December beginning of January, Wire announces they're going to be scaling back operations and laying people off after this deal blew up. And that's like the first phase of Wire, right? It's a cryptocurrency payment processor doing what cryptocurrency payment processors do, making risky loans, throwing funds around into DeFi protocols, announcing acquisitions that never actually happen. It's a classic crypto payment processor. So when I go to Wire, their website, which is still up, it says, Wire is winding down and it talks about what they did and how they're ending. And they basically, it seems like they tried to do this in a way that allowed people to get their funds off of the payment processor in time. I don't know if you know anything more about that than I do. Funny enough, I'm like, Bolt is still around though. And this is Ryan, that's still Ryan Breslow's company, right? We didn't even get into all of Ryan Breslow's fuck ups, right? Like he had the movement Dow that he gave away to like a known fraudster that was separate from like his movement not for profit that ended up like embroiled in some other scandal. We've got some articles we'll link in the description and there's some videos we've made on this channel about it, but like Ryan Breslow's whole like group of companies is a fucking mess. I'm looking through his career and just some of his stuff in general. First of all, this guy is 29 years old. He's younger than me. And 29 is very, very young crypto pharmaceutical startup, the movement, a dance nonprofit. I am confused about this guy's entire life. Surprise went to Stanford. Gosh, I'm all over the place here just because I'm like, wow, so eco didn't work out. That's gone, right? Eco still has a website and they're still tweeting. And they still have a token that's down, oh, down 70%. Remember, there's two tokens, right? There's eco and there's ecoX. What does ecoX do? Well, that's the deflationary supply token serving as the governance asset that's used to secure applications on the eco network, of course. It's deflationary. Why is it down 88 %? It's not deflationary enough? I feel like this is so similar to our discussion about Terra Luna, man. We're not going after Ryan Breslow's stupidity today. They're all interconnected, wire, bolt, eco, love, whatever the fuck these are. And they're all doing poorly. They're all stupid. How much money was going through wire? There's some answers to that I'll get to, not as much as you might be thinking. At the very beginning of 2022, wire announces they're scaling back operations and doing these layoffs. And then on January 7th, wire announces that they're going to be changing withdrawals, limiting how much you can withdraw. You can only withdraw up to 90 % plus other daily limits. Five days later, though, things get better when wire announces that they have received financing from a strategic partner that will allow them to continue their normal course of operations. And this is always good news when crypto companies get strategic financing from undisclosed partners. That takes us into the Binance US era of wire. Binance US, in the beginning of 2022, was using Prime Trust as their principal payment processor. They started switching off of Prime Trust, and by May 25th, 2023, had much of their funds stored with wire.
A highlight from MASSIVE XRP PUMP! (Ethereum Not Done Yet!)
"Today is a great day to have a new set in crypto. How are we all doing today? It's 11 -6. It's November 6th. It's 11 -32. Sorry. It's 10 -33am. How are we all doing today? We got a new set. We got some new people. This is going to be phenomenal. Look at that lighting down below, folks. It's lovely. I'm loving it. Hey, chat, let us know what you think about it. But guys, we're going to be talking about XRP. Why is XRP pumping? What is going on with Ethereum? Is there more activity? XRP is the crypto market's back is all -coin season starting. Also some huge Bitcoin ETF news as well and Grok AI, the AI that most resembles a caveman's name. But yeah, we got Drew and Kelly. I don't know which way to look. Do I look at the camera? Do I look at chat? Do I look at these two lovely gentlemen? Look me in my eyes. All right. Let's maintain eye contact for the entire show. Love the new set. It looks amazing. Nice. Nice. Okay. A little bit of an echo. Special shout out to our entire team here at Hit Network, BJ, Aaron, and Joel, and Bobby, and Owen. There's so many people who just work tirelessly. If I forgot anybody's name, a lot of you. Love you all. We appreciate how much hard work you do. Really special shout out there. Drew, any message on the beginning of the set? How do you feel about it? Man, it's just - You helped carry some things. Yeah, no, it's nice to have a fresh start. And I mean, this is just, it feels as professional as we act every day. Oh, that's not at all. I mean, I don't know. We bring the heat. So we have a new set up here. It's nice to be able to conversate back and forth with you guys, bounce ideas by each other a little bit more organically as we go through the news. So - Legit, because he DZ being a future Jimmy Kimmel. No, I will never be the CIA's puppet master. Okay. I will never be their puppet. All right. Let's get right into the show here, folks. Guys, let's see if I can share your screen. Make sure you're following us on Discover Crypto. We just put out two phenomenal videos over the weekend. In this Cardano video, I also added it to my pin tweet here, if you want to see it. But I highly recommend you go check it out on YouTube. Get in there, get in the chat, leave a couple of questions, we'll start replying to the videos. I don't know how I'll do it with the next video, working on some top three tips to master the bull run for the first hour that the video's out, we'll go ahead and maybe we'll engage with you. So if you've got any questions, I'll jump in there. Also, we did another video on Jimmy Bitcoin. The heist Bitcoin is stronger than any Bitcoin heist in history, billions of dollars. So it's a really, really good video. I recommend it. He's like the Bitcoin heist meister. He's the heist meister. Yeah, yeah. He's not Heisman, but he's the heist man. All right, folks, make sure you go to hit merch as well. And I think it's time for us to just get right into this Ripple story, folks. Ripple gaining momentum, $850 million, and whale buys push price above 75 cents here. You see it broke out above a critical 65 cents resistance, and now it looks like it's off to the races. So over the last two weeks, crypto whales have been spotted buying XRP aggressively. Not only are the whales buying, they're buying aggressively, folks. As of 2023, the event edges is now the best time to get crypto. You know what? I can see why Bobby's wanting me to move left. I tend to lean to my right. All right, between October 24th and November 6th, the whales, how much XRP did they acquire? 1 billion .26 XRP, folks. And if XRP does say go to $2, $2 .50, even $4, talking about billions of dollars here. So they're bringing their new balances to a new 2023 peak. So we're at a new peak for XRP balances on the whale wallets here. Now there is a big event coming. It's the 2023 edition of Swell Digital Asset Conference in Dubai later this week. It's an invite -only event. So we'll feature keynote speeches and dialogue with some leaders, regulators, and innovators. Now Drew, you're kind of Mr. XRP here. I think you're probably the biggest fan of XRP. The whales are buying. Now are they going to start dumping? No, I mean, we'll always see a little bit of sell pressure, but I think that banks being even just slightly willing to test out XRP and its remittance payment systems and these continuing patterns growth that I see for Ripple in general, I think that things across the world are seeing this. The US still has the gray area, but the rest of the world is feeling ready for it. So I don't think that that'll be on us anytime soon, a big dump. All right. All right. More conspiracy talk. You guys are always on point. No, no, no. We got to get off the rails here. Poor Jimmy. You know what? Poor Jimmy Zong. That's the only Jimmy I like talking about. All right. Here we have the social dominance chart. So this blue line is where people mentioned XRP. So when you see a little bit of spike in social media chatter, oftentimes you're going to see a little bit of a price increase as well. But sometimes social media chatter precludes the pump. Sometimes it's after the pump. They're just, it depends because as a coin doubles in price over a month, people will just start talking about it naturally, even if nothing else is going on. But so here's the social dominance metric is showing the percentage share of a cryptocurrency in comparison to the 50 most talked about projects in the crypto media channels. So they'll just look at keywords, how many TikToks are being made and compare it to the other 49 coins there. But having cleared the resistance at $0 .65, XRP price now faces minimal resistance on the road to $0 .70 as well. So not only that, though, we also have Deaton coming out. He was coming out in favor. So there's a little bit of a settlement with the SEC versus XRP months ago where, hey, programmatic sales, hey, that seems fine. But when you're selling to a hedge fund, that seems bad. So we had one win, we had one loss, and we're saying, so this is like a 50 -50, right? This is like a 50 -50 win -lose. So Deaton's coming out saying it is not 50 -50, it is 90 % win, 10 % loss. So we're looking at more of a 90 -10 ratio here. So here, let's just get his quote out here. In a recent post, he strongly refuted the idea that the result was close to a 50 -50 outcome here. The people who argued that the SEC got a 50 -50 victory in the ripple crates are 100 % right wrong here. I'm still messing around with it. It was more like a 90 -10 in Ripple's favor. If Ripple ends up paying $20 million or less, it's a 99 .9 % legal victory. Did it feel like a 99 .9 % legal victory, Drew? Yeah, I mean, absolutely. A lot of the talk from famously like Pomp when we first got the Ripple case laid out, he's like, oh, you're holding securities, but kind of dancing on the graves of people that held XRP, even in the retail, which I think was just an absolute spit on the face disservice and a to our freedom to transact and to have new systems come about to do those transactions. So seeing even these chunks of wins from XRP and Ripple are massive, massive gains in confidence for people across the world. Now they're looking at this thing and many people are calling it the most regulated crypto on earth just from these recent wins. You brought up gains of confidence. You think I care about the gains of confidence? I don't care about the gains of confidence. I only care about the gains in price. And that's where we're going to go to Kelly here. Kelly, we have some charts here. I don't know if you're looking at XRP, but yeah, 65 cents, 70 cents. Is that all just a facade or is there a real support and resistance happening here? Well, it's throwing it here to the chart. We can see that this is essentially a chart I've been looking at for some time. And interestingly, we have this sort of uptrend parallel channel that on this break to the upside, which is when we have that initial news breaking of the sec the court case stuff that we got this massive pump and essentially rejected right here at a known level that goes all the way back. I mean, this goes all the way back to this base point here, December, 2020. So this is a pretty interesting when the price was going, I was looking at this suggesting, and this is going to be likely turnaround point. We got a stiff rejection off that until we broke down and tested the lower bound here. Got a deviation below. Now why will we have a deviation below is because these smart money people out there, these the people that really understand how to move the markets, they try to do everything they can to trigger those of you and those of me and drew DZ. Everybody that's in this market is subject to emotions. And those that are in control of their emotions and have a sound strategy and risk management doesn't get triggered by this consistently. But those, somebody sold down here cause they thought it was going lower. Oh man. It gave that opportunity for a lower entry for a long, okay. Now we're seeing here, especially where we're at in relationship to the having coming up and we have all this stuff on the horizon about the the IPO for ripple. And we have all these court cases winning into to your point earlier. I don't think they're going to win a hundred percent, but I think that's baked in. I think in the sense that at 99 .8 % or whatever, they're going to have to have some concession not to make Gary Gensler feel like he completely has, you know, a full face of egg on it. So there's going to be some sort of small fine paid or some concession that they have to make, but it's literally just going to be the fee of doing business. We see this also, it's not, it's not the end of the world. We look at you know, traditional banking, they've had $40 billion in fines since 2000 traditional banking. And yet there's, you know, they're able to continue doing business because it's the price of doing business. Now, are these levels that you're talking about? You said 65 cents. Yeah. 65 cents. And then a lot of resistance at 70 cents as well. 65 cents is right here. This previous range high that we broke through. I do think if we come back down, this is a great area. If we're very bullish, this is a great area for price to bounce on. It doesn't mean if we lose this, it's not bullish anymore. In fact, we can come all the way back down here to this horizontal line. That's in perfectly a basically cross section right here to that 60 cents level. This would be a great opportunity for another, you know, still bullish pullback if we come back to this level. Now, if it does continue to run, where is it going to go? Are you going to buy DZ? Are you going to buy on the way up if we get two candles in a row that are still bullish and we break 85 cents, is that a signal for you to buy and prices just running higher? You know, as much as I like candles, I don't like buying wicks. And so just I even when it hurts me, I just I'm averse against buying wicks. Yeah, no, I hear that. And so the point here is if things are running, that's a signal that there's a lot of stuff going on. Let the pullback let the chart come to you in your strategy so you can so you can make a smart buy. Now, let's go ahead, look at Bitcoin, Bitcoin and an interesting sort of channel that it's it's trading here. A lot of people are speculating. Is this going to be a setup for a sort of kind of flopsided bar pattern where the price action actually continues chopping in here only to break down and, you know, to this level? But why is that level important to previous high level that thirty two thousand dollars? Now, whether we continue higher or pullback down there now, at some point, I do think we're going to test below this range that we're in right now. Things are I mean, we see the momentum here is trending down while the price is still slightly turning higher. So there is some signs that we may be having some issue here coming up fairly shortly. I think C90 says the best. We're too far away from the having to not have at least one pullback. I don't know if it's going to start tomorrow. I don't know if it's going to start two months from now, but we're looking at an April twenty twenty four halving date. There's I'm assuming it's going to be much more likely than not in those six, five, six months. We'll experience a pullback now. Everybody want and I just did a video on this on the bit lab morning stream talking about the pump season. It's holidays. Everybody not only has a bias that they wanted to go up because you want to feel happy during the holidays, but there is data out there. There's data out there that shows that on average, November has a thirty seven percent pump to the upside. But that doesn't that doesn't mean every November is a thirty seven percent pump. There are some November's that have been negative. Basically, you've lost value in November. And we can see on this chart right here, this is seasonality. This is Q4. These these yellow bars, horizontal bars. This is Q4. And yes, we had a pump here. But look, we had a dump here, consolidation here, pump here, break down here. So you have to you have to take it into the context of where you're at in the market cycle compared to the halving. So as it stands right now, I do think we very well could get a pump. But look how far we still are from having to me if we do get that pump, I'm going to be looking for an opportunity coming into the halving for still some lower prices to whatever level we pump from pump two. So I would just urge caution. The higher we go, start looking for opportunities for prices on a pullback. All right. Let's say what is the coin you want to get more of during a pullback? I'm just going to say boring Bitcoin. I feel like I don't have enough Bitcoin. So if there is a pullback, I think I'm a scoop up some more bitty. What about you two? I'm going to be going after Cardano next. That's the next big bag. I have too much of it. What about you, Kelly? Well, I'm torn because I mean, look at pull up this chart real quick, because we see dominance is coming into a known zone. Not a carry off. Do you like Natalie and Bruglia? I'm told that's how I was trying to think of the song is that I'm still coming into this zone. Dominance is pulling back. We're seeing a little bit of capital rotate out of Bitcoin. And we also see the Ethereum dominance broke. Everybody wants to see this breaking, thinking every alts are just going to moon. But we still could very well have those alts pull back. So it's still a little bit. Everybody wants this to be an alt season because we're seeing some pretty big gains, you know, also because we're all overexposed in alts. That's why. Yeah. You know, one of those ones, everybody was kind of taking a little doodoo biscuits on was right here. Albert Rand. Everybody was saying they thought it was dead because they're also doing that rebrand. But look at this 45 percent pump. But it's pushing higher. But don't get lost in the bias just because you're feeling good in a green candle. Look for those pullbacks. If I had to pick one, it would be Bitcoin.
A highlight from Ep406: Get On All The Platforms You Dummy
"Now you're going to get more downloads, more listeners, more plays, more ratings and reviews, and will end up happening is it'll trigger algorithms where your podcast playing platform sees that you're doing great. They put you in front of more and more people. And that means that your podcast grows. Most hosts never achieved the results they hoped for. They're falling short on listenership and monetization, meaning their message isn't being heard and their show ends up costing them money. This podcast was created to help you grow your listenership and make money while you're at it. Get ready to take notes. Here's your host, Adam Adams. Hey, podcaster, it is your host, Adam Adams. And on this episode, I really want to talk about getting on all of the different platforms we titled this episode. Get on all the platforms, you dummy. Now, I think that was more of a hook like, hey, wake up and I want you to wake up. Why? Because I get so many people that come to me. And they tell me that they're on all the platforms and they tell me that the reason why they know that they're on all the platforms is because their hosting platform syndicates it everywhere. That's a lie. And I'm sorry to tell you, I'm sorry to put this in to your head right now. You're not on all the platforms. You are not unless you work with a team like ours that really knows how to get you on every single platform. You're not there. You're not there just because Libsyn or Buzzsprout or you name the hosting platform. You're not there just because that company syndicates, quote, quote, everywhere automatically. You got to do a little bit of research. I want to give you a couple of examples. When Facebook this was a short stint when Facebook decided, hey, I want to jump on the podcast bandwagon. I think Facebook might have been saying, I think that we need to keep people on our platform. They're going to all these other platforms. They're going to name the platform Apple and we're losing out on attention. And so for us to get more attention, let's offer to be a hosting platform for podcasts as well. So they tried it out. Now, not very many people moved over. It didn't end up working out. They didn't put enough money behind marketing. They didn't spend enough time on it. They didn't do it right. They didn't really launch it very well. I don't think Metta has been doing everything perfectly lately. Who knows? We can save that for another thing. Anyway, Facebook ended up trying to do podcasts. And guess what? You probably never got your podcast on there. But guess what else? Our 60 clients at the time all were on Facebook within 10 days. Within 10 days, we had 100 percent of our clients on Facebook. Then they went out. And that's fine. That's not proving the point or taking away from the point. The point is that you need to get on every platform that you can. Let's use another example. YouTube comes out and says, hey, we're going to be a hosting platform now, too. Now, you could already have your podcast video on YouTube. You could already put even the audio as a video with a still image on YouTube. Those things already could happen. But that was never good. Being on YouTube was never that great. And why? Why wasn't it? And it's basically because unfortunately, when somebody has a regular old YouTube channel, they're listening to your episode or they're watching your episode. Maybe they're subscribed. Who knows? Maybe they found you because somebody forwarded it to them. The point is that as they're watching your video, YouTube is going to basically say you should watch these other videos. And here's the sad thing. They're watching your video. And let's just pretend that you have about 150 people that have watched it. That's a pretty typical number. So you're on YouTube and 150 people watched it. And what's going to happen is YouTube is going to say, well, you should watch this other one that 70 ,000 people looked at because we trust them because they have a lot of people that liked it. Or you should watch this other video with a million people. And so the little guy or the little girl, that person, let's just say you, who only has a certain number of downloads and it's not over a million per episode on YouTube. Well, what's going to be happening is YouTube is going to push people in front of the other ones that are doing better. That's the sad thing, but that's a reality about it. So when YouTube said, hey, I'm going to have a podcast playing platform like Apple and Spotify, for example, what ended up happening is my team again within 10 days all of our clients are now on YouTube for the audio version with where people can subscribe for the podcast. So within 10 days, all of my clients, boom. And you might not have even known that Facebook ever did that. You might not have known that YouTube, as I'm recording, is currently doing that. And that's because you well, I guess there's a lot of reasons. You're not doing all of your research and you're not finding out how to do all this. But working with our team, we are always trying to find out where all the platforms are. Regardless of how you get on the platforms, you work with our company. Great. You find it on your own by like a Google search, wherever you search, then you're going to be able to connect it. And so here's at the end of this episode, here's what you need to know. You need to go and research unless you're already a client of ours and working with us. You're everywhere. You need to go and research all of the other places. I'm going to use the next couple of minutes to share another platform that all of our clients are on. It's called Ganna, G -A -N -N -A, I think is how it's spelled, Ganna. And it's a place where a few years back in India, they came up with a podcast playing platform and it became one of the biggest playing platforms. And a few different countries, especially last year from the day that I'm recording this, about a year and a half ago, Mandarin, Chinese and Spanish became huge, huge listener base. So China and for example, Mexico had more listeners than they did the previous years before. And with Ghana, this allowed a lot of more people in eastern India, for example, to become listeners of podcasts. It gave them a great platform that was for them. And then you might be saying, OK, Adam, what you're saying, what I'm hearing you say, this is you talking, I'm imitating you right now, not to be rude. You might say this, well, Adam, sounds like that would be good. But you keep telling me that the listeners are from India and like my podcast is in Germany. My podcast is in America. My podcast is in Canada. My podcast is in Europe, wherever my podcast is in the United Kingdom. So here you are saying like, I don't really think you're onto something, Adam. If you're trying to tell me to be on one and that's in a totally different country, like I don't understand the point. OK, I get you. I'm understanding with you. I'm with you right now. You don't get the point. Yet. Let me share it with you. Even if you have a podcast and let's just say you're in Germany, you got a podcast in Germany. You only can serve people in Germany for your business. I don't know what your business is, but let's just pretend you live in Germany and your podcast is in Germany and you can only serve people in your country. And so you're asking, so why would I need to be in this other country where there's a lot of listeners growing just like they did in China and Mexico recently? And here comes the answer. The answer is you want to trigger some algorithms so that you can get pushed in front of more people that can work with you. So regardless if you think you can serve them, if your business is also in that country, you will still want to allow your podcast to be on every platform. Get on all the platforms you dummy. Get on all the platforms you dummy. OK, so you're going to want to be on in the platform Ghana, even though most of the listeners are going to be in India, because now you're going to get more downloads, more listeners, more plays, more ratings and reviews and will end up happening is it'll trigger algorithms where your podcast playing platform sees that you're doing great. They put you in front of more and more people. And that means that your podcast grows, your podcast will grow as well. And also it's a small world after all. I mean, we've all been to Disneyland or Disney World and ridden that ride. It's a small world after all. They say it like a million times and it's still not in your head. It is a freaking small world, which means that in India or the Philippines or Mexico or Germany or the US or Canada or Australia name more countries, that's fine. I'm going to stop there in this country. Many people know people in other countries. Many people can refer people. So on top of you just getting more downloads and stuff on top of you triggering algorithms so that your person can find you easier, you will also have that third benefit where somebody listening, let's use Ghana and India for a second. And I hate to sound racist or however this might sound, but I'm just going to finish the sentence anyway, because I have a shit ton of friends who are Indian and engineers or I .T. So I'm just going to use the friends that I have as the example. So I've got a friend who lives in Texas. They are Indian and they migrated directly from India. And so they even still have that stronger accent as well. Right. So they haven't been here their whole life. They are a first born immigrant. They moved here. And well, guess what? When Ghana starts growing and your podcast starts growing in Ghana, what are the chances that that person who's listening on Ghana in India has a close friend or family member in Silicon Valley, a close friend or family in San Antonio, Texas, Austin, Texas, Dallas, Texas, has a strong family member and named the city. I have so many close friends that are Indian, that are engineers or technology or whatever, and they migrated or their parents or the grandparents migrated and they need to know my podcast. So there's still more chance using that third example of referrals to be able to get in front of my right person. So let's just say that you've got a real estate podcast. You syndicate deals, which means that you raise capital so you can buy bigger real estate and you get out up on Ghana. Awesome. Engineers and IT make a lot of money. They both do. And so all of a sudden you got that person listening and they might just tell their friend who lives in name the city in the US, for example, or in Australia. Maybe you're in Australia. I know that there's a lot of good technology there as well. Technology is a big thing right now. And so not to be prejudiced or saying that everybody of a certain race is a certain job title. I know that's not true. It's just that I have a shit ton of friends that are Indian. They're either engineers or IT, just like most of the time. Sometimes they're lawyers, sometimes they're other things as well. But I just so many of them are those two things. And just depending like where you are, what you're looking at, what you're looking for, there's no reason not to be on every single platform. So I feel like this is like a racist episode. I hope nobody thinks that I'm being negative toward anybody in any way because my heart's not there. Anyway, going back to what I'm saying is at the end of this episode, what we want you to take away, it's work with a company like ours where we can make sure that you're always on every platform that's possible so that you can get the best end result, regardless if that listener is the best listener immediately. There's three reasons why to do it. And if you don't work with us, for example, just do a really good research on a search engine where you're trying to find what are all the places possible. It's a small world. After all, I'll see you on the next episode. You're not alone if you're ready to either get your very first affordable microphone or if you're ready to upgrade your equipment to some legit podcasting studio equipment, because on all of the forums over the last few months, I'm seeing this all the time. Even my own personal clients that work with my team, they're ready to get that next microphone. They're asking us for it. Additionally, when I'm on discovery calls with potential clients, they're always asking for this stuff. Hey, what mic do you recommend? Hey, what lighting do you recommend? What webcam should I be using? So many questions. And so what we did, my whole team has put together a PDF so that if you're one of those people who is looking to either get your very first affordable microphone or if you're ready to upgrade your equipment to more professional podcast studio equipment, whether it's soundproofing or whatever, we've got you covered by going to growyourshow .com forward slash PDF, and you can download the PDF for free or right there on the webpage is everything that you would have and you don't need to download the PDF either way. Just go to growyourshow .com forward slash PDF, which will put you to the podcasting equipment that me and my team have personally vetted. I'll see you on the next episode.

"As a person with a very deep voice, I'm hired all the time for advertising campaigns. But a deep voice doesn't sell B2B, and advertising on the wrong platform doesn't sell B2B either. That's why if you're a B2B marketer, you should use LinkedIn ads. LinkedIn has the targeting capabilities to help you reach the world's largest professional audience. That's right, over 70 million decision makers all in one place. All the bigwigs, then mediumwigs, also smallwigs who are on the path to becoming bigwigs. Okay, that's enough about wigs. LinkedIn ads allows you to focus on getting your B2B message to the right people. So, does that mean you should use ads on LinkedIn instead of hiring me, the man with the deepest voice in the world?

From Hopelessness to Food Addiction Recovery With Lisa K.
"I'm going to read one of your quotes, which is really, really powerful, that talks about the hopelessness and desperation and powerlessness, I would say. So I'll read this and let you talk about it. It was a journal entry. It said, quote, I was recently reading through my past journals and I want to read from my journal, January 1, 2021, the day before my consultation with Shift. I can barely look at myself in the mirror. It disgusts me. I see myself as fat and ugly. Food has become everything to me. I binge six plus times a day on fast food, chocolate, pasta, cheese, sauces. I eat food off of other people's plates out of the trash. I see many negative consequences of my eating habits, mainly gaining weight, disgust at myself, difficulty with sex, looking and feeling like a pig at a buffet, numerous body pains, breathing difficulties. I can't walk more than a few feet and I need to take several breaks walking up one flight of stairs in the house. I can't put on my own shoes and my clothes don't fit. Food makes me loathe myself. Food is killing me. My body and soul are both dying very quickly. Not even my program is working. So is there any hope at all? I don't think so. I'm just going to die. That's what my new year will be, my death. That was the day before you consulted with the Shift folks, recovery. We'll talk about that. But talk about where you were January 1, 2021 and what was going on. Yeah, I had tried everything up until that point to lose weight. That was my goal. I just want to various pay -and -weigh programs. I tried various diets that were out there, bizarre things. There was one, eat right for your type, where you did your blood type and you figured out what foods you could eat or not eat. That was a disaster. I think I gained 20 pounds in a month on that one. But it was horrible and life was horrible. I was miserable, absolutely miserable. And I'm not really wanting to live anymore. I'm really feeling like there's nothing I could do here that's going to make a difference. Nothing's going to help me. I tried. I went to a food treatment program a couple years earlier, about three years earlier. I did great there for the week and for a few months afterwards. But there was no aftercare. I would just go out to a 12 -step group and I did that. I was in 12 steps. I gained weight about 100 pounds being in a 12 -step program. I knew I needed something more, but didn't know what that could possibly be. Yeah. You got the click, I would call it, when you talked to shift and you heard what might be possible. It sounds like that was your bottom, if I could make that leap, that that was a bottom where you thought you're going to die from this because you have no real solution on how to get out of it. And that's where I got. I got to the point where I don't want to live like this. I'm going to die. I'm slowly killing myself because of the 70 pounds, the high blood pressure, the diabetes, couldn't walk without getting out of breath. And so that was a bottom for me. So this you're killing yourself with food. And I was just like, yeah, whatever. Okay, sure. I can't stop, so too bad. It wasn't until I had a doctor who told me I was committing suicide and the suicide war just really hit me. And that was two months before that January 1st day. And I got so angry, I stormed out of the guy's office because I was not committing suicide. And then that morning, I sat there thinking, you know, I'm not going to kill myself. I'm not going to commit suicide, but if God took me tonight, that would be just fine with me. That scared me. And so then the next morning, I was on Facebook looking at family pictures from Christmas. And up pops the shift recovery by acorn advertisement on my feed, which again, I'm barely on Facebook, and I don't search for food addiction treatment. And I don't search for weight loss programs or anything else on Facebook. And here it pops up. And I'm like, huh. So I talked to my husband, and I asked him if he'd be with me. And we did a consult with shift and the next day. And I really thought for me, that was intervention by God. I could not have found shift if I wanted to try to find them. God just put it in my place. And I don't even think I was in the space to look for a food addiction treatment program at that point. Like I just was totally discouraged and in despair
A highlight from 123: Part 2: Rikk Rambo Survives Two Shootings, An Assassination Attempt, and an 800-Pound Grizzly
"Yeah, we did not because, you know, since they were part of, they were in probation and all that with the juveniles, and we didn't really have anything to do with them unless we were investigating them. And I was out of there pretty, you know, pretty shortly after that but never, you know, not able to track, you know, whether that was effective or not. Just don't know. But I do notice watching them. Let me ask you, after going through that, did you think about breaking the law after that? Nope. Nope. Nope. I'm good. Nope. You know, I thought back to all the things I did as a juvie, you know, that might have been, you know, and I'm like, yeah, I think I went the right, I think I went the right direction. Yeah. Well, so you said you did that, you hurried because you had to, you know, you had paperwork to do at Pittsburgh. So how long did it take you from the time you applied to the time you got on Pittsburgh PD? I would say it probably took probably close to about a year, almost like with DEA. DEA was very methodical, very slow and very good with the way that they hired you. But Pittsburgh Police, yeah, but when it happened, it happened in a whirlwind. I waited about a year. When I went to take the test at Pittsburgh, I drove all the way from over in western Ohio, so about a five hour drive, showed up at the convention center, you know, going back to when we're talking about how popular policing was, how difficult it was to break in. Went to go take the test. It was at the convention center, like a Van Halen concert in 1984. There must have been probably close to, I think they said 18 ,000 people for 200 jobs. So I mean, I took the test and didn't think anything was ever going to happen with that many. And being an out -of -towner, because, you know, there's a little bit of nepotism in some of those back east towns, but yeah, about a year. But boy, I'll tell you, you could tell they had a protocol in place to keep the out -of -towners out and to keep the, you know, the people who knew people inside or whatever, to keep Pittsburghers, Pittsburghers. The gal calls me from Pittsburgh out of the clear blue and she goes, you're considered for the job. You have two and a half days to move here. And I'm all the way over by the Michigan border, working over there. And I found out later on this gal had some issues with people like, anyway, yeah, so she had an issue with out -of -towners and some other things. She's been on the racist side. Let's go ahead and say it. This gal was very racist. But yeah, she said, you have two and a half days to get here and she says, this is what you have to have. Now I'm in Ohio. You have to have a driver's license, proof of residency, like a lease or whatever. You have to have a telephone, subscribe to your name and power. And you have two and a half days to do it. It's, I mean, but luckily for me, my secret weapon was my mom and dad lived within an hour of Pittsburgh. So I'm back that night. The next day we head up there and luckily mom and dad were Uber before Uber was cool. They drove me all around Pittsburgh. Thank God I passed the test on the first try and didn't screw up any of the questions and what have you. But I passed the driver's license test. So I got my PA driver's license, ended up finding an apartment, did everything in one day. Ended up having everything I needed in one day. And I totally baffled her. I could tell when I showed up at the public safety building with all my stuff, all my gear, you could tell she's very disappointed. Her name was Cookie. Anyway, yeah, I showed up and had it all. And so that's how it all went. And it kind of bolstered what I thought too when I went to the academy, because when you walk through the door of the Pittsburgh Police Academy, it's also very old. I mean, it smells like history when you walk in there. Old, old building. Walked in and there's this old disgruntled, this is my indoctrination into Pittsburgh Police. I walk into the building and you smell that history. I walk in and there's this old pissed off cop sitting there. And he's like one of those big city, old pissed off stereotype cops. He's got an unlit cigar chomped in his mouth and whatever. And I remember he was very voluminous, big guy, sitting there just angry looking. And he had the tea sitting at a table. There was a container over here with nightsticks and a smaller container on the table with blackjacks. And if you're not familiar with blackjacks for people out there, they were an impact weapon that was your backup if you couldn't use your full size nightstick or once they went to Asps, the expandable batons. But a blackjack was basically a leather wrapped, about a foot long. It had a steel spring in the middle wrapped in leather. It had a handle. It had a lead ball also wrapped in leather on the end. It's kind of sproingy. You could kind of give it some spring. It was meant for close quarters stuff. But yeah, it was like a 1900 Keystone cops blackjack nightstick and this pissed off old cop sitting there. And he says, name, sign here, get downstairs and get your uniform. And like I said, there was no friendliness. So I go down, I get into the locker room and the first thing somebody said, and this is the first thing in Pittsburgh that anybody said to me from the PD, I get down there and one of the other new recruits looks over at me and he goes, so who do you know? And I'm like, I don't know. I'm just that token out of town kid and whatever. But I mean, that was really not a big deal. The rest of it wasn't nepotism or anything. That was the first thing it said. But you could see a degree of people that were there that had been, you know, that were like legacies or they had known somebody. But for the most part, it was a bunch of good guys and gals. And that carried on all through Pittsburgh. You know, I think a lot of the times for us, you know, we're our own best critics when it comes to not wanting a dirty cop, not wanting a bad cop. Not even somebody that, you know, is even halfway, like doesn't treat people the right way and whatever. I mean, so I mean, most of us are our own best critics. And I can honestly say, like with Pittsburgh Police, I work the second worst part of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh's north side. It's called Zone 1. But all through my career in Pittsburgh, I met like maybe, maybe two or three guys that I'm like, oh, boy, I wouldn't want to work with that fellow. But that's out of hundreds of people. And we'd jump zones and go over to their zones and help them out. It would work special details like events and work with detectives. But yeah, my experience for the rest of the time with Pittsburgh was very, very good. It was truly a family. One of the biggest problems we had when you'd have a serious call where you had to call back up, like you had a gunfight going on or you had like a really serious foot chase. One of the biggest problems was trying to sort out who all had showed up at your scene when you write your report. Because, you know, Pittsburgh had a whole bunch of agencies going on that were kind of like on top of each other. And even though Pittsburgh police was the clearinghouse for like a robbery or a shooting or what have you, you know, we had Allegheny County police, Port Authority police, sheriff, school, and they could come back you up if necessary. And so it just looked like a carnival if you had like a really serious call. And so my experience was, though, that the people we worked with were unbelievable. Never, never had a bad experience in the field. Very lucky. Well, yeah, you had a bad experience in the field, weren't you? Didn't you tell us something about two weeks after you got released? You're out on your own. Didn't something happen? So I guess we'll tell a couple of these. For the first two weeks in Pittsburgh when you get out, they didn't have a field training officer program. What I tell people that even 15 years ago, 20 years ago, I tell people, yeah, Pittsburgh didn't have a field training officer program. You'd graduate after your six -month academy and they're like, here's your badge, kid, go out and be good. And that was the way they did it. Wow. So you had no FTO. You got a badge and a gun, go get them, Tiger. But what they did do for your first two weeks is, for familiarization, they would put you in all the different, they don't call them precincts in Pittsburgh, they're called zones, but they would put you in a different zone in Pittsburgh for like a three -day period. And that way, during the two weeks, you could experience every one of those zones, know where their stations are, if there's a court, whatever you need to know about. And you'd also do patrol work with another officer. Yeah, so my first week on the job, so many things happened in one and a half weeks that kind of like shows you the quantity over quality when it comes to, you know, street law enforcement in a big city. But I remember my very first call for service, I was in Zone 2, which is our downtown area. That's the big sprawling downtown and then the Hill District. And my first partner, he was an older guy, a little bit gruff and what have you. You could tell he's kind of like, he's not real happy being saddled up, you know, with the rookie, but that's what he had to do. And it was nine o 'clock in the morning and they get a call of an unknown disturbance from Point State Park. Point State Park is where, if you look at Pittsburgh proper, you have two rivers called Monongahela and the Allegheny River. They flow together and form the Ohio River. Well, right there where that point is, they have a really, really nice park right there. It's huge, absolutely huge. But nothing ever happens there usually because you can't escape. It'd be like Snake Pliskin trying to get out of New York or whatever, you can't get out of there. So it's unusual to have that call. So we get down there, we just drive right through the park in the patrol car, right down through the green lines, we get down to where the problem was, was a park bench. And there were several business people, a couple ladies, a couple guys, dressed very nice, and they're kind of standing back just like watching this poor thing unfold. It looked like it was a homeless guy. He had that Obi -Wan Kenobi homeless look to him with all the multiple layers of clothes where you can't really tell what's going on. And so he's laying on the, I don't know if it was a he, but we found out later on, the hard way. We found out the hard way. Yeah. So he's laying on the park bench and he's kind of like in the fetal position, but you can't see anything but like that Obi -Wan Kenobi rap going on. Nothing. Can't see hands, but he's in, it looks like to me as a young, brand new, fresh out of the box, fresh -faced kid, I'm thinking this guy is going into convulsions. And he's making the sound that's like, grrr, grrr, grrr, grrr. I mean, he's making these like animalistic sounds. He's in convulsions. And so I'm just kind of like, huh. And this cop, without skipping a beat that I'm with, old timer guy, he gets out his big old Micarta nightstick. He goes over in front of all these business people, takes it and just jams it right into the area that's probably going to be this guy's sternum or ribs or stomach or whatever. And just, he doesn't hit him with it. He just sticks it in there to give him a little, you know, hey, pride. He sticks it. Well, the guy never misses a beat. He stops. Well, he does. He stops for like maybe a second. Like he stops the convulsing and the gurgling sounds. And then he goes right back at it again into the convulsions. And I'm like, oh man, it's like our first day and this is going on. And these business people are like all shocked. They're like, oh my God, because of the nightstick. And the cop, my cop, he goes dirt and jams the guy again. He goes, hey, I said, get the F out of here right now. And the guy stops making the gurgling sounds and then sits up. And now you can see it's a dude. He's dirty. His face is really, really dirty. And robes his and whatever he had going on comes open. And there's no easy way to put this. I'm going to make the sound effect. If you heard that sound effect, that's what fell out of his robes. He had this thing that looked, it didn't look right. You know, when you see something that doesn't make sense to you, and just for like maybe a two second period, your head is trying to figure this, like, what am I looking at? I don't even know what I'm looking at, but you know what you're looking at. This guy had a monstrous monster dog. Yeah, he had a monstrous dog. And he had been performing fellatio on himself. And I'll be honest with you guys. I'll be honest with you guys. You know, I've told this story ever since from Pittsburgh on, like when you're sitting in a surveillance van, you're like, what's the weirdest thing you ever saw? Or like, what's the most thing that ever made you the most jealous? Anything like that. But yeah, so we're, I saw, but before we did our podcast today, yesterday, I just wanted to see, I want to make sure that I haven't misremembered this story. So I went online and I typed in, I typed it in. I hope my, yeah, don't look at my browser for this one. I typed in, can a man perform fellatio on himself? And you know what? I was totally justified in whatever, in telling the story the way it is, because according to Men's Health, and hey, you know, Men's Health says that it can't be wrong, 0 .2 % of the male population in America can actually do that to themselves. So you don't have to break a rib, I guess. You don't have to do anything weird. You're like a fetishist type thing. But anyway, so that guy sits up. I know it makes a lot of mental, you can't help, but just get the mental images. I'm sorry, but if you do that, are you automatically gay then? I mean, how does that work? I don't, you know what? I'm not here to judge. I'm not here to judge. All I can tell you is, I guess I, you know, if I had to, I'd have to say, I would probably be homeless too. You know, if I had that going on, I might be homeless, or at least never leaving my house. I don't know. But yeah, so that comes out and flops down and what have you. And the business people, and not just the men, I mean, not just the women, the men too, it was like, you know those 1950s movie screams? Yeah. Like the over -the -top, like from all the old horror movies, like, ah! That's what universally happened to that small little crowd of business people. They were nowhere to be seen in about 25 seconds. They were gone and whatever. And you know, the guy, the park bench guy, he reels it in, or I'm not sure how that spools it up. I'm not sure what he did. If he had a holster, I'm not sure what he did. But anyway, yeah, so he gets it back in there somehow and gets himself bundled back up, and he just goes trudging off. And he never did say one word that you could understand. It was all just like, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. I mean, just total nonsensical gibberish. And he just kind of wandered off into the sunset. I guess that's what heroes do. Ah, jeez. Yeah, he wandered off into the sunset. And I'm thinking to myself, huh, I went through five years of college and 70 years of military, and here we are. It's great. It was absolutely great. I would not trade my time with the things we saw in this world.
A highlight from How the US Stole $3 Billion in BITCOIN! (CRAZY STORY)
"The secret Bitcoin billionaire. It's a story involving partying, burglary, online drug markets, and the IRS. His name is Jimmy Zong, and at one point he held over $3 billion of the cryptocurrency Bitcoin. It was stored in this popcorn tin in his lake house at Gainesville, Georgia, before being seized by authorities. The saga dates back to the earliest days of Bitcoin and ends right in my backyard of Athens, Georgia. It's time to discover the secret Bitcoin billionaire. Jimmy's story starts in the earliest days of Bitcoin. He was mining as early as 2009, the year Bitcoin launched, and boasted he mined over 300 ,000 Bitcoin. This is a value of over $9 billion today. He contributed to the Bitcoin code and even offered ideas to the early developers on how to reduce blockchain size. But Jimmy would go from being an early architect of Bitcoin to the world's most infamous Bitcoin hacker. The year was 2012. Silk Road had been launched the year prior by Ross Ulbricht, a libertarian who believed in the power of free markets. He created Silk Road so people could buy and sell anything they wanted, including a legal contraband, without government interference. It was like the Wild West, but with more drugs and less horses. The Walmart of the Dark Web, and it was an instant hit. It was a hit for Jimmy as well. Jimmy had developed somewhat of a reputation as a party animal in the downtown Athens bar scene. And not only was he a party animal, he was willing to splurge. Here's Jimmy's friend, Stefana Masich, describing Jimmy's behavior while downtown partying. buy He would me and my friends drinks, and then there were multiple times too where he would buy shots for everyone at the bars. He would buy shots for every single person in the bar? I mean like 100 people? Yeah, pretty much. But Jimmy didn't stop at alcohol, however. While downtown at a bar, he once bragged that he had $30 ,000 of cocaine back at his house. So, Jimmy was in a restaurant talking to some girls, and he happens to mention that he has $30 ,000 worth of blow at his house if they want to come back and party. $30 ,000 worth of coke. $30 ,000 of cocaine. Unfortunately for Jimmy, there was an off -duty police officer sitting in the restaurant one table over. That's just bad timing. It was really bad timing. Bad timing indeed. According to Jimmy, he used Silk Road to purchase the illegal substance. But Jimmy wouldn't just be a user of the site. He would later hack Silk Road for 50 ,000 Bitcoin. The details surrounding the hack seem odd for someone with Jimmy's knowledge of computer sciences. It wasn't exactly the criminal plans of a mastermind, rather something much more simple. In his statement, Jimmy says that the way he stole these Bitcoin was he was withdrawing some assets from Silk Road. He had been using it to purchase cocaine, and he realized if he simply double clicked, he could withdraw more than he had put in. Is that what happened? To the instance that he would just double click the withdraw button, we don't know the answer to that question. I mean, that seems awfully simple. But at the time, Jimmy wasn't punished. In fact, he was rewarded. According to Jimmy, Ross Ulbricht was so impressed, he reached out to offer a bonus for discovering the flaw. In addition to letting him keep the 50 ,000 Bitcoin for discovering the vulnerability, Dread Pirate Roberts gave Jimmy an additional 5 ,000 Bitcoin. However, it is important to note that whether or not Jimmy Zong and Ross Ulbricht had communication is in question. The federal prosecutors investigating the case were unable to find any proof. My name is Trevor MacLeanon. I'm a special agent with IRS Criminal Investigation. Jimmy alleges it. We couldn't find any evidence to support that position. But at the time of the hack, Bitcoin was only $10 a coin. But as Bitcoin ballooned in price, the 50 ,000 missing Bitcoin garnered more and more attention from the IRS Criminal Investigation Division. But it would be years later before there is a crack in the case. Here's Sean McGruder, Blocktrace CEO. His company is a contractor for the IRS and other government agencies that assists with complicated blockchain transactions. One of these special agents who I work with on the team calls me and says, hey, Sean, can you help out and assist with this? We can just take a look at it, you know, over the course of the weekend, that'd be great. And this was on a Friday. By Monday, I came back with an answer and said, hey, I think we might have something here. That something ended up being Jimmy's downfall. It was a big mistake from a small transaction. Jimmy had once sent $800 worth of his funds to an exchange with KYC, or Know Your Customer. An exchange with KYC will require their customers to share their name and identifying information. After another unexpected big break, investigators would follow these clues right to Jimmy's doorstep. That big break would actually be a break in. After a trip with friends that Jimmy lavishly paid for, he would come back home to discover his house in Athens, Georgia, had been broken into. The thieves would make out with more than $400 ,000. And even though he was sitting on tens of thousands of stolen Bitcoin worth billions of dollars, Jimmy turned to the police. He shared with authorities that in addition to cash, the burglars had stolen hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of Bitcoin as well. This was an opportunity that federal authorities would not let go to waste. They reached out to the Athens Police Department to see if they could use this home invasion as a pretense to search Jimmy's home. They asked me about the Bitcoin and how much was in there and if he talked about where he got it from or anything like that. And I really didn't have the answers for him. But I told them, let me email them and I'm sure Jimmy will meet with us. Jimmy quickly agreed and Lieutenant Jody Thompson, Agent Trevor Macklin from the IRS, and Sean McRuder go visit Jimmy in Athens. Lieutenant Thompson's body cam was rolling the entire time. Zong, without hesitation, lets the investigators write in. Hey, this is Trevor and Sean. They're going to be with the team. Once inside, investigators get Jimmy to open his laptop and log in. What was on the laptop screen would shock investigators. When you're sitting next to him on the couch, he opens his laptop. What do you see on that screen? Low and behold, he had $60 or $70 million worth of Bitcoins right there next to us. So with one glance at the screen on his laptop, you could instantly tell this is a guy who's a credible suspect. He could have pulled this off. That's right. Authorities now had enough to execute their search warrant. Inside they would find $700 ,000 in cash. And inside a bathroom they stumbled upon a Cheetos popcorn tin. Inside the tin was a computer holding the stolen funds from Silk Road. Jimmy Zong's reign had come to an end. The party animal, the secret Bitcoin billionaire, had finally been caught. Jimmy was arranged on charges of wire fraud. And after a tense courtroom battle, he chose to plead guilty. The judge handed down a sentence of one year and a day in federal prison. Jimmy started serving his time behind bars at the federal prison camp in Montgomery, Alabama, July 14, 2023. The end of the saga saw Jimmy stripped of his illicit digital fortune. The U .S. government seized the stolen Bitcoin, ensuring that this chapter of cybercrime was firmly closed. The once daring, hacking maestro had lost everything. As Jimmy exited the courthouse on April 14, a throng of reporters clamored for a statement. Jimmy draped his coat over his head and briskly made his exit, leaving the questions unanswered and the world wondering. Why'd you steal the money, Jimmy? In the end, the secret Bitcoin billionaire's empire crumbled, not with a bang, but with a subdued exit from the world stage. Jimmy Zong, once a key figure at the heart of the digital frontier, now just another shadowy hacker behind bars.

"All right, we are now 30 % of the way in this bull market. And if you don't believe me yet that we are 30 % of the way into the bull market today, I'm going to show you the data. I'm going to show you exactly why I say that we are about 30 % of the way into the bull market. The first 30 % is a very, very calm, very tame 30%. It's like the warm up to the momentum. The next 70 % is the part where it gets vicious and where you need to have a plan. So we're going to talk about the bull market and how to prepare for the next 70 % of the bull market. We're going to talk about what you've missed versus what you've actually, what still lies ahead of us. And we're going to make decisions as to how we should position our portfolios. Then I want to talk to you specifically around this bull market. And the reason I want to talk to you about this specific bull market is because what we see now is that this bull market is different. Usually it goes Bitcoin, Ethereum, large caps. This time it's gone Bitcoin. Ethereum hasn't moved at all. And then if you start looking at the large caps, look at Injective up 121 % this month, Solana up 71 % this month, Rune up 94%. But in the meantime, Ethereum hasn't even happened. So we want to talk about what's actually going on here. Why is Total 3 on the rise while Ethereum hasn't started? Is this bull market going to be different from all the other bull markets or is this just a coincidence? And if it isn't, then what is the trade here? Because there must be a trade here. So today is all about altcoins and the altcoin bull market. It's going to be a massive, massive, massive show. I'm back in the studio here in Kaytan. Can't wait to get this going. Let's go, guys. Let's go.

"You do a fair amount of arithmetic if not high mathematics to explain why we actually should not have been surprised by the dramatic fallout we've seen in stocks such as Amazon Take us through your methodology here Hi David Thanks for having me Yeah you know what I point out in this piece is that you know before this whole tech rack a lot of these tech companies were trading and growth companies in general were trading at 40 50 60 times their earnings for expected earnings for the current fiscal year And when you look at the long-term average for growth stocks as judged by the growth indexes let's say you know that average PE is closer to 20 And you know investors are paying more because they take earnings will catch up But that raises the question how does a 50 P E stock become a 20 P E stock And the answer is it's almost always because the price falls off a cliff rather than earnings earnings catch up And if you want to see that one way one I think very simple heuristic that you can use to see that which is what I offer in this piece is that for any Friday stock you can take the price and you can divide it by 20 which is as I say is the long-term historical average PE for growth stocks in general And that will tell you what kind of earnings are baked into the price If you compare those earnings with the earnings that are expected today for the company you can see what the difference is And in general the bigger that difference the more unlikely it is that you're going to see those earnings anytime soon And the more likely it is that the price is going to have to contract in order to bring that PE down which is what's happening now If you look at history does that depend critically on what stage the companies in a more mature company will not be growing earnings as fast But in the early days of success you could have earnings growth that's double even triple digits That's right And I would add one other variable to that which is the probability of those earnings actually coming through So in general if you have a larger more mature company you can expect the growth to be slower but also you can be more confident that that growth is going to show up If you're dealing with a small state an earlier stage company yes that company could grow by a lot more but that growth is also a lot more speculative So when you're looking at the difference between the earnings and are baked into the price and what you're expecting this year as I suggested before you have to take into account not only the gap but the probability of that gap closing and the smaller the company you're dealing with the more unlikely it is that they're ever going to reach that earnings target So take us through Amazon which you do in your column You go back in history Amazon is a very special company for various reasons But for many years they had no earnings at all as I recall That's right If I remember from the data Amazon first turned to profit in 2003 and the Amazon is an interesting one because when you go back to Amazon is old enough to have been part of the original dot com mania in the late 1990s you know in those days investors were paying huge amounts We can't even calculate a PE because as you say David there weren't even earnings in those days But if you look if you do what I just did in this column if you just take that price say in 1999 divided by 20 what you see is a huge earnings number and that earnings number ultimately was not realized by Amazon for 20 years But if you had bought Amazon after that original dot com crash and say 2000 to 2003 when the price had come down the valuations were a lot more reasonable it only took a handful of years for those earnings expectations to show up Now Amazon looks a lot more like it did in 1999 than it does in 2002 By my math it's going to take based on where its growth is now It's going to take a decade or two maybe even more for Amazon to catch up to the earnings expectations that are currently baked into its price Well an interestingly and in contrast to what you just said about Amazon as I read your piece you think Netflix may actually be more reasonably priced now There's lost what 75 76% of its value That's right It's down about 70% And not only Netflix Netflix is trading now at about a 17 forward PE Facebook is at 14 Google's at 18 apples at around 22 So you know some of these companies have really come down to earth and the important thing to know about that is when the PE comes down the earnings expectations is also more modest So the probability that these companies are going to be able to hit those targets and relatively soon increases exponentially As opposed to say a Tesla which is still trading upwards of 50 as is Amazon or say a Salesforce which is trading in the mid 30s So you really have to be selective It's not all of these companies have come down to earth yet So help me with people who are buying or holding at this point some of these stocks that you think are overpriced too optimistic Is it basically people doing this on a greater fool theory They don't really think the company is going to make up that difference but they think somebody else will offer more at some point I certainly think that's part of it I think another part that we don't talk about enough is that I think a lot of investors just don't do the math And certainly ordinary ordinary investors you know they sort of they buy a stock on the expectation without asking the question okay but one of those expectations is already baked into the price And what happens if those expectations don't actually aren't realized And the answer is that you know investors are only going to hang around so long If you see a stock where the expectation is so high that it's going to take many years you know a decade or more for those earnings to show up or whatever measure of success we're looking at Then the chances are investors are not going to hang around long enough for that And they're going to bail and that's where you're going to get hurt So you really have to do your math I think Well you've certainly done the math here I must say it's really worth reading his column That's near case our who has a column on the Bloomberg right now Earnings math catches up with the tech high flyers You can read more on this and other stories from Bloomberg

"Folks, remember what What does going is okay, It's a crypto currency. As you know, crypto currencies don't really Not really based on anything. They're bait well. People say it was just like the American dollar with American dollar is based on the productivity of the United States. And that is a confidence thing. I mean, everything is based on confidence. I mean, the stock market is based on confidence. For the most part. And so Elon Musk has been out there. Uh, pushing does coin way told you the other day he's announcing does one which is the new spacecraft is going to go to the moon. And they're only gonna accept those coin as payment for the payload that they take or whatever. So he was pushing this on Saturday night Live, too. And people are buying does going like crazy thinking that once he did this on Saturday night live the does going was going to go through the roof, and it actually went down substantially. It peaked at about 70 cents of those coin, and I think the day I checked, there was like 40 cents of those coin. Well now. Tesla's going to stop accepting Bitcoin this payment for its electric cars. And you know why do to environmental concerns and this is where it really gets crazy. Ellen must, as test last suspended vehicle purchases using Bitcoin were concerned about rapidly increasing use of fossil fuels for Bitcoin mining and transactions, especially cold. Which has the worst emissions of any fuel. Now when he says Bitcoin mining, there's not some big piece of equipment out there in the middle of the woods, Mining Bitcoin, you mind Bitcoins on a computer? But I guess he thinks if you're just using a computer in there these super computers that are looking for Bitcoin that you're destroying the environment, It really is kind of crazy. But he says Cryptocurrency is a good idea on many levels and we believe it has a promising future. But this cannot come at a great cost to the environment. But he did say that Tessa will not sell off its substantial Bitcoin holdings and plans to resume accepting the crypto currency in the future when mining shifts to more sustainable energy. So I guess if you're running your computer from a solar panel, you're okay. So how much is Bitcoin going for today? Hold on one second, I'll tell you Because this thing is fucking nephew bought Bitcoin several years going to feel you were poo poo in it. I'm just saying it's it is. It's not based on anything real. Bitcoin, which which I mean, just several years ago was going for like 53 cents a bit going and now sells for right at $50,000, a Bitcoin. And if I let me see when this graph here and I can tell you when this took off this five year year And when I was around, 11,000, so it was below 10,000. Okay, let's see if I got a max on this bad boy. I don't know when this happened. It's been a while. But I remember when they first started doing this so Some of you folks who were investing in Bitcoin early on. If you held onto it, it's worth quite a bit these days. That's not what I mean by what I mean that the Bitcoin is not viable. It's viable as long as there are people who will buy it. But when the confidence drops out of it, which I think it eventually will, and it's such a volatile currency. I mean, I can't imagine that you would base anything on Bitcoin because you would see go up and down and up and down. You don't see the value of the dollar do that much unless you got the Biden administration charge. And so they say, they're not going to sell any of their Bitcoin. They intend to use it for transactions as soon as mining transitions and more sustainable energy. We're also looking at other Cryptocurrencies. That use less than 1% of Bitcoins Energy slash transaction. So I'm not sure what they're going to go to. I mean, he's been pushing does going but does coin was actually done is a joke. Some dude, put it out. There is a joke, and it's caught on. It's got a market camp of in the billions. It's unbelievable. And it's very similar to what was that? Oh, you remember the stock thing several weeks ago, when all the folks when they were they got the short so they drove the stock up game Stop. Now I haven't checked game stop in a while. But somebody told me that that was going up again, too, so I don't know what's going on. What has happened is you've got people like Elon Musk. You have a lot of influence, but apparently not as much as a thought. But I think that he thought That he was going to drive those coin up when he talked about it on Saturday night Live and he had bought a bunch of it, which I would think. Amounts the insider trading. You know, normally when you do this, and then you used some platform or something to artificially pump something up. Then the feds come get you. But I see what he's doing now. I mean, he has bought a lot of Bitcoin, too. But he's trying to get this does coin thing because he has bought a ton of this and bought it at like 17 cents a coin for does coin. And so I think what he's trying to do is he's trying to throw shade on Bitcoin and trying to drive that price down and thinks that people will move to dose because you notice in this statement, sort of cryptic. He says. We're also looking at other Crypto currencies that use less than 1% of Bitcoins, energy or transaction. What that would be those going Don't mean I don't even know if you can mind for does coin. I think you just by. I don't know how this works. But it's Yeah, it sounds like the me that he he wasn't a success. We thought it was gonna be on Saturday night Live getting does coin to go through the roof, So he's now trying to he's trying to attack Bitcoin. And hopes that does coin will take its place.
