A highlight from Leftism is a Euphemism for Narcissism
"Hi everybody, Dennis and Julie, Dennis Prager and Julie Hartman. What number is this, by the way? I was wondering. I think it's 88. The speed of time. We were just commenting on that right before. 88 is correct. The irony is the wrong word. The interesting aspect of today is that we could speak for four hours. We would need perhaps a bathroom break, and then we would do another four hours. Because that is how much is on my mind, and you have a lot of stuff on your mind. As everyone knows, this Dennis and Julie podcast is not news -driven. We may make reference to something happening, but it's a free -for -all thought life, us. Extravaganza. Extravaganza, that's a good term. But I have to say that the events in Israel have been consuming, and I don't let myself get consumed. I'm very even -tempered, as you well know. I've worked on it all of my life, and I remain even -tempered now. I am watching evil of such magnitude, and vast numbers of people who support that evil. That is more depressing. Right. See, there were no pro -Nazi demonstrations. In the United States. Around the world. During World War II. Around the world. Yeah, exactly. Or even in the 30s. There were Nazis, but there's a tiny element, and they were regarded by mainstream people as morally defective human beings. But here, the announcement that a nation should be destroyed, and you have this mass support for that idea? There was a, it's interesting, there was not a tavern, I'm thinking in British terms, using tavern. Which, by the way, we should acknowledge that we were both in London. Yes, and we will get to that, hopefully, yes. But there was a, was it a diner, or some sort of restaurant in the New York area, I believe it was, and the owner put out pictures of Israeli kids who had been kidnapped. And his entire staff quit. Did you see this story? I did not, no. His entire staff quit, and a certain number of his patrons would not return. And word got out, and now he's doing better business than ever, because so many people are now frequenting his restaurant. But what does that mean? I mean, what was his staff composed of? That putting pictures of kidnapped Israeli kids is morally objectionable, that you quit your job? Well, we saw that at NYU, I believe it was NYU, could have been Columbia, but there was a university where students on their windows put up faces of the hostages, and they were torn down. And there was a video that I saw the other day where a member of the U .S. Women's National Soccer Team was driving in Los Angeles past a pro -Israel protest. She rolled down her window and raised her hand in the hall of Hitler. She was on the team. She's not. Oh, she's not now. Oh, okay. I thought she was now. It's really terrifying to see these people coming out of the woodwork, and they are so unashamed of their anti -Semitism. It means there's not that much stigma. Right. Well, Vivek Ramaswamy, the other night in the third presidential debate, which by the way, shout out to our company, Salem Media Group, for co -hosting, co -moderating that debate. He, and just to give another aside about Vivek, his opening line where he came – did you see this? Where he came after Ronna McDaniel, NBC for peddling the Russia collusion hoax. I was watching that, like cheering him on. That was the best line ever in debate history. Putting that aside, he had a really, I thought, great line too about anti -Semitism where he said that it reflects a greater rot in the society. That's exactly right. You say it with the canary in the mine. Right. That – There are noxious fumes. Yes. And so it shows the moral degradation of the United States of America in general. And how amazing, by the way, because we're supposedly so woke and we're so race -conscious and we're so, you know, people who are oppressed -conscious. And yet the fact that we're seeing this across the board in businesses, universities, individual people who are unashamed to come out with their anti -Semitism, I hope people are finally seeing the light, that this is a morally confused and morally corrupt culture that we're in. So I wrote an article, I looked it up, I didn't remember, 2015, so that would be eight years ago. Oh, was it – is this the Pakistan one? No, that's another one and that's totally worthy of noting. I wrote a piece, let me see if I can see it right now, and it was titled – God, it's really – I want people to read it because I would actually like to read excerpts for a moment on this issue. Let's see if I can here. Well, I didn't think I would be reading from it, so I didn't prepare it and I don't want to waste people's time, but it was an article about – remember when there was a huge influx of Muslims from the Middle East to Europe and the United States? So it was 2015 and I wrote, my heart breaks for a lot of these people, Syrians were being slaughtered en masse and Iraqis and ISIS and Syria, and I wrote, look, they're going to bring into Europe and – it was really about Europe – they're going to bring into Europe not everyone, obviously, but a lot of them will bring anti -Western values with them. People don't come naked, they wear their values, which is inevitable, if I moved somewhere I would bring my values with me.

Not All Palestinians Are Terrorists, But Does It Matter?
"Large enough percentage where 10 % 15 -20 Wherever you find terrorism, tyranny, sectarianism the vast majority of the time the majority doesn't support it but that's why they're not democracies so when people say hey look you know it's not most policy why does that it's the individuals who are the terrorists who have control over the resources who have control over a territory or a society or so forth that's the problem and because of them an enormous amount of harm is done including death so it's not like that's an answer to anything it's to be wiped out whether it was Hitler whether it was Stalin whatever it is they have to be wiped out there's and really no easy way to do it but to do it and of course civilians are harmed by that I can't think of a single war or a major that hasn't been the case now you tell me one case just one in where victims turn around go after their enemy and then have sectarian pauses quote -unquote well Mark Netanyahu just agreed three or four hours a day here's the truth they've been doing that anyway Biden jumps out because he's trying to take credit because that's all Biden knows that's all he does he hasn't done a damn thing about Iran nothing who's killed American citizens again and who has severely harmed American soldiers again you know your home is so much more than the place where you live it it's an investment tool you can put that tool to and access your equity as cash to pay off high interest debt did you know your average credit card rate is around 29 percent so if you're not paying that debt in full every month those fees are adding up it's like two steps forward one step back you simply cannot let that happen which is why you need to look at your spending your finances your debt better yet let American financing do it for you this is a family -owned mortgage lender they're not a so bank you can trust you are important to them there's no pressure no upfront hidden fees they're saving homeowners just like you and average at seven
A highlight from RadCast Rewind: Episode with Fishing Legend Al Linder, Now on Carbon TV
"Hey, Radcast is on. And welcome to the show, Mr. Jim Zumbo. Gentlemen, I am pleased to be here and I use that term loosely when I say gentlemen. Al Winder. Just want to welcome you to the show. Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to hang out with us on a podcast for a little bit. I am looking forward to it. There's nothing makes me happier than a coke in Minnesota. If I can't be out fishing, I should be talking about fishing. Hayling from Wisconsin, Janna Waller. Thank you so much for having me. It's Radcast. Hunting, fishing, and everything in between. Powered by Bowspider. Brought to you by PK Lures and High Mountain Seasonings. And now, here's your hosts, Patrick Edwards and David Merrill. Again, Al, it's great to have you on the program. I do want to give a quick shout out to Danny Kertola, my cousin, for helping set this up with Al. That was a big deal. Thanks, Danny. Yeah, so I really appreciate Danny and Al. Just want to welcome you to the show. Al, thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to hang out with us on a podcast for a little bit. I am looking forward to it. Nothing makes me happier than a coke in Minnesota. If I can't be out fishing, I should be talking about fishing. It's going to be well below zero tonight. So Al, that's probably one of the big motivations for Patrick and I to start this podcast is we both have young families and we're both avidly into the outdoors, whether it's fishing, hunting, or a little bit of both. So that's our goal is to recruit new anglers and new hunters to the outdoors. The timing is really appropriate for it. We've got a whole new recruitment coming in because of COVID that our sport has never seen before, experience in the outdoors. And they need some guidance in a lot of cases to respect the resource. And that's an important part of what's happening now with these whole lot of these newbies coming in. Yeah, it's been fun to watch you over the years because you've really helped teach everybody about that. And I know as a kid, I always looked forward to outdoor life coming in the mail and also in Fisherman Magazine, because that was the thing was I wanted to learn more about fishing and growing up in Cheyenne, Wyoming, it was like a dead zone of fishing. There's really not much close unless you're going to drive two hours to Glendo, three and a half hours to Seminole, five hours to Boyson, you just forget about it. There's just nothing there. You talk about teaching people. I was reading that as much as I could, because I knew when I went, I had to really capitalize on those trips. And you've done an amazing job about that. And I just wanted to know if you could just share some tips with us, what's some key strategies of getting kids and just other anglers out on the water? What are some good strategies and tips? Number one, make sure you take them when you can get them back. I can't hold eyes how important that is, especially with the younger ones that have shorter tension spans. And it is critical that barber is going down or something pulling on the end of that line. And that's one. And even with new adults, and we have a lot of those coming into the sport now that have never fished before. And yes, they have patience where the young people don't, however, their patience will reign after one or two trips without getting a bite. It's the biggest hindrance that I've seen to our sport and your people back. The key is getting a bite to light that fire. They got to catch something. And you don't want to take them out in miserable weather conditions. You have to weather good and do everything in your power to make sure that they get back. And the reason people fish and continue to fish is they had a good experience and a good experience is something pulling on the end of their line. That's really the reason you're out there. That's what motivates people. It's the miracle of a fish. It is amazing to me, my entire life in this business to see what a fish can do to change somebody's life. Yeah, a kid sitting on the dock catching bluegills and all of a sudden nowhere, a two pound bass runs out from under the dock and grabs your bait. You never had your catching your six and having a ball and out of this bass is there. Your hook did break where you landed your life forever. Somebody has never met fish. Yeah, they heard something about it. They're going out with somebody that knows something about all of a sudden next to the boat. This monster opens his mouth and bites on it. It's an image that burns into your spirit that will change. It never goes away. That's what lights the fire in this sport. And it's why it's so important that the end of good weather to do it. And that's the key is to get them action. And then if they're really young, you know, after two, three hours, they like to think around and alive. You get a few fish around all kids like that. They're fascinated with fish bouncing around in the life. And that's the key. It really is the key to keep them motivated, keep them fishing action in a short period of time. But again, with the adult or even a young person after after. So you get them out for two trips the third time. Yeah, you're going to say you want to go fishing with me today. You got too bad experience that they're going to go back and play video games. So the interest won't be there. Well, I was fortunate enough to grow up near Saltwater and my dad in the Pacific Northwest. We did a lot of salmon and halibut and deep sea. And I got introduced very young to fishing. We actually just had a podcast with my dad on talking about starting that fire that you're talking about. I'm curious, who was the fishing mentor in your life? The person that got you hooked on fishing? Well, actually, my brother's 10 years my senior. And he took me everywhere from the time I was a little kid. He's seeing a burning passion. He shared that he said there was something about it from the time you were little. You were obsessed with fish and fishing. And he nurtured that. He actually nurtured that in him being 10 years older than I am. Yeah, he took me under his wing. And I had some really good experiences in those years. One of them that really fed my passion for fishing was my mother. And this is strange, but I got to share that story with you. My brother obviously loved the fish. So he took me everywhere we could go. We fished all over the ponds and lakes and creeks and rivers in between Chicago and Milwaukee. And there's many of them. And we were out every moment we could go. He'd be able to go the way he took me. But my mother really liked to fish. And she's seen people would ask me at a young age, wouldn't you go to a Christmas gathering of family or friends like this? And yeah, what are you going to do when you grow up? Boldly coming? I'm going to be living fishing. That's what I'm going to do. I'm going to look at you. Oh, OK. You're going to blow it off. And my mother, she, under the guy, my brother, would she at Christmas time or birthdays or special event every time I found my Christmas presents and gifts were the latest, greatest fishing tackle in the industry, whether it was a rod, a reel, a lure, magazines, books, anything that she fed that fed it and fed it. Never said that's a dumb thing. How are you going to make a living in a fishing industry? Especially at that time, that many years ago. Yeah. And the only thing you get, you tackle manufacturers and outdoor writers that at that time, one of the inspiring outdoor writers to me as a kid was Jason Lucas. He wrote for Sports of Field at that time. And he wrote a book called Lucas on Bass. And I'll bet you I read it a dozen times. It marked every page, the experiences burned into my mind. But experiences like that, and then television, I remember pioneers of the TV fishing business, the first one, his name was Gattabot Gattis, the Flying Fisherman. He was the first one that syndicated television fishing shows. And he'd fly to different locations all over the country and share his fishing experience, Gattabot Gattis. And then that led to Virgil Ward, that was the true championship fishing. And he was the one that lit by fire to get into the fishing industry and do a television show in the business. He was here in my hometown in Brainerd, Minnesota, when we were starting Lindy Jackal Company. And his producer, his name was Jayden, he gave us a call at the office one day and he says, Hi, I'm Dave Jayden, I'm with Virgil Ward, championship fishing. We've been in the area for three days. We're having, we want to do well, I should have went to Bass Busters gig. And he says, can you help? And I understand with the way you're a really good fisherman, everybody says, go call Al if you want one. So should we do a show? That's absolutely. We went out, we got a phenomenal show shot in four hours, he got everything done. He's all happy. He took off, went back to Missouri, and we finished that. My brother looks at me that night, we're talking. He says, that's great. He does a television show and talks about the lures that he manufactures. I said, we could do that. We got, why don't we start a television fishing show and help with that's what led our fire. And that was it. That trip went there and we bought a camera. I mean, that's what camera and my brother learned how to use it and how to voice tape together. And you're shooting with film at that time. You had to rewind these stories on how you get into the game and into the fishing industry and into the sport and the different aspects that are available. You get these different stories from everybody that is enough to make a living business. But I'll go back to what I said just a little bit. Just what a fish could do to change somebody's life. It's astounding to me how it happens all the time. One experience with a fish and just bam, your life is changed by it. Yeah, I agree. It's an amazing experience. I remember catching fish when I was little and how it lit my fire. And again, I promised that I would do this on the podcast and I hope it's not lost because you hear this stuff a lot. But my friend Seth Ewing, who lives in northern Idaho and myself, we grew up just eating up your shows and the magazine. And it really did benefit both of us. He's an incredible fly fisherman and he learned a lot from your fly fishing video that you guys put out with Dahlberg. And I love the smallmouth and the walleye and those kind of species. And so it's just one of those things where I hope it's not lost on you when you hear us say thank you so much for doing all of that because it really did inspire a lot of people across the United States and the world to go out and fish and to take other people fishing, which I think is really cool. One of the things that I always enjoyed and my dad and I always enjoyed watching you fish was just the joy on your face. You were always chuckling and laughing and having a great time. We were just living vicariously through you as the wind blew about 70 miles an hour through Cheyenne, but it's just, it really did make a big difference. And I do want to, I want to ask about this because this is really important to David and I, we both have little kids and we take them out fishing, hunting different activities and you have kids of your own. And I know like he's very influential and big into the fishing business as well. But can you talk a little bit about what that was like raising your kids to be fishermen, but also raising them during that time that you're just so busy and you got all these things going on with the fishing world and the fame that you had going on. How did you manage all those things and still make it a great experience for your kids? They grew up in the business they did. There's not all seven, Ron had seven children. I've got two boys, all of the kids, even the girls, three of his kids are girls. They all served in the business doing something. Yeah. From the time we started Lindy Tackle Company, they were pouring sinkers and learning how to tie snails, raffle them on cars. They were exposed to the business as a family run business all their life when they grew up in different fields and did other things. But a number of them stayed in the business and are in the business today, like Jimmy and Banny and Billy and my son Troy.
A highlight from Why is COD MW3 3-4 Hours Long, Dragons Dogma 2 Looks to be Insane, Early ACCESS BS, The best Gaming Podcast #423
"I'm muted. Now I'm unmuted. Sup everybody. This is Carrick with ACG here with Abzi and Johnny Silver. Couldn't make it. Doing the best gaming podcast for twenty three. We're going to talk about modern warfare's campaign being three to four hours long is what I'm hearing. Three to four hours long for a hell yeah dude. Just the rock. In and out. Michael Bay. We're going to talk about that. We're going to talk about Dragon's Dogma 2. I read some stuff about how they've set up the game. No scripting all this stuff and some of the crazy shit that even the developers have seen with how the game sort of puts events together. Want to talk about that? Let's see. We got a bunch of user questions. You guys put stuff into Discord. It's actually a pretty packed day and then there's the Activision event at some point later today too. I'm not I don't really care about their stuff until I play it but I know that there's an event today. We're going to talk a little bit about the new Digital Foundry video. Well maybe not talk about their video but talk about the switch too because they did some they they jumped in and sort of talked about their kind of stuff cryptic layoffs and what we want in a bond game invincible. And then there's just a bunch of news stuff that people want us to talk about. Oh and Alan Wake too. Again we're going to keep the spoilers to a minimum right. We always do that. Are we talking about Alan Wake again? We're going to talk about a little bit sort of wrap up our thoughts but not too much because I think with Alan Wake it's not only covered the more we talk about it the more there's a chance that we're going to bounce into a spoiler. It's just bound to happen. And yeah yeah yeah for sure by Spider -Man 2 people were talking and I just kept backing off going like it's because I'm awake like everything about it like everything about it links to the story. It's just rich with the plot you know what I mean? Yeah it's very hard to even talk about an item because the item might pair into the story or the gameplay because you know there will be one element that's a surprise about something you can do and stuff.

Let's kick off today's show with our market watch as we do each and every day. We got Bitcoin up about a quarter percent, hovering just under thirty five thousand. We have Ether up point three percent trading at eighteen hundred dollars. Cardano, one of the top gainers, up five and a half percent and also XRP barely in the green. And if we are in doubt, they say you need to zoom out. Let's look at the one month. Wow, that's much more sexier, isn't it? Now we have Bitcoin up twenty seven percent for the month. We got ETH up about 10 percent. Solana is up almost 70 percent. Cardano up twenty three percent. XRP up fourteen percent. BNB up seven percent. Personally, I love it when everything in crypto is a winner. It don't get no sexier than that. And look at Chainlink up fifty two percent for the month. Good lord. And check it out. Coin market cap percent in just under one point three trillion with about forty five billion in volume in the past 24 hours.

And checking out the top one hundred crypto gainers of the past twenty four hours for chain up fourteen and a half percent trading at three dollars and twenty cent and Oasis Network up twelve percent trading at six point two cents, followed by the trust wallet token up almost twelve percent trading at a dollar twenty three and checking out crypto bubbles so we can see the top gainers for the past week. Massive shout out to Emilio. I appreciate the super chat. Fam, you're way too kind. Much love, much respect. He just said you are amazing. Nah, I think you're amazing. And I appreciate the orange so we can orange pill more mofos and help change the world. Let's freaking go. Much love, fam. But as we can see on the crypto bubbles on your screen, we got a lot of gainers overall. That means the market cap is pumping and a rising tide rises all ships and checking out the crypto greed and fear index. We're currently rated a sixty five in greed. Yesterday was a seventy two last week, a seventy and last month a forty nine, which is neutral. So there you have it, my fam. What's your thoughts on the current Bitcoin price action? Let me know. Are you pumped up for Moomvember? I sure as hell am. Let's dive into our Bitcoin technical analysis for the day. Check out the charts with a Bitcoin price action is likely to go next. Bitcoin broke below thirty five G's baby after the November 2nd Wall Street open, as analysis warned of overheated derivatives. As you know, derivatives are financial tools of financial destruction. Yeah, for real. Now Bitcoin under does the post fed gains. We're currently tinkering just under that thirty five thousand, which is now back at a resistance. The highs had come on the back of the encouraging language from Jay Powell, the chairman of the Federal Reserve, who in a speech suggested the interest rate hikes might soon end. Now, the Fed opted not to change the rates at the latest meeting on the Federal Open Market Committee, which was November 1st quoting their press release. Recent indicators suggest the economic activity expanded at a strong pace. In the third quarter, job gains have moderated since earlier in the year, but remain strong and the unemployment rate has remained low. Inflation remains elevated and accompanying press release stated. They also shared here that the U .S. banking system is sound and resilient. Sure it is. Tighter financial and credit conditions for households and businesses are likely to weigh on economic activity, hiring and inflation. The extent of these effects remain uncertain. The committee remains highly attentive to inflation risk. We all know they're full of ish, right, to say the least. And quoting crypto analyst, Bitcoin breaks out, reaches a new yearly high, which is currently just shy of 36 G's. Now, not a massive breakout, but as long as we say above 34 .8, which we currently are, the next target is 36 .5 to 37 ,000. And the altcoins will follow after, which is typically what seems to go down. Now, down over a thousand from its highs. Bitcoin was worrying some with derivative markets, particularly in the focus, quoting Charles Edwards at Capriole Investments. All Bitcoin derivatives markets are overheated at present. This captures the perps, futures and options. Stay safe out there. And also, we have reacting popular trader school agreed that arguing it was now the spot market to charge of saving the Bitcoin price strength, as he shares here, something to be aware of when sizing up positions currently, when derivatives get hot. This puts increasing focus on spot market to support the current prices and the trend. That's right. In his own analysis, we also had material indicators concluding caution should be applied to the current Bitcoin trading environment, meaning expect more volatility ahead and uploading the snapshot of liquidity on the Bitcoin order book for the largest global exchange, Binance. It warned support levels were apt to disappear quickly. A form of a rug pull. So you have been warned. Newcomer support gaining liquidity at this time lay at both 34 and 33 .5. So there you have it, fam. Again, how many of you are currently bullish on that? King crypto. And with that being shared, now let's discuss our next story of the day. The latest from Michael Saylor. He was recently interviewed on the news and shared some very positive sentiment in the Bitcoin market. Also, he has been a dollar cost averaging and stacking stats. This week, the Bitcoin price came within a hair of thirty six. I think we hit like thirty five nine ninety during our watch party before abruptly reversing and correcting to thirty four to fifty. But after nearly a 30 percent run over the past month, it is natural for the price to cool off as some traders take profit and market participants evaluate whether or not the catalyst for the rally remain valid. Now, despite the intraday price action, which saw almost five percent drawdown, a number of analysts remain bullish on Bitcoin naturally, and some expect another gamma squeeze. If the Bitcoin price manages to push through the thirty six three hundred level, we're only like four hundred dollars off of that right now. Just FYI, permables like MicroStrategy CEO Michael Saylor appear unbothered by the whipsaw price action. And on November 1st, MicroStrategy announced the October purchase of one hundred and fifty five more Bitcoin for five point three million. As the outlines here in October, MicroStrategy acquired additional one hundred and fifty five BTC for five point three million bucks, now holding one hundred and fifty eight thousand four hundred BTC like, whoa, and what's the most mind boggling? Saylor didn't even get into Bitcoin until twenty twenty. So it goes to show you someone can come here in twenty twenty three and become an even bigger whale than Michael Saylor. In fact, the likes of the Black Rocks of the world put Michael Saylor to shame because we're talking about mega mega mega whales on a massive scale. And when asked about the upcoming Bitcoin having during an interview on Squawk Box, here's what he had to share. Most of the natural sellers of Bitcoin in the market right now are Bitcoin miners and they have to sell to cover their electricity bills and capital costs and retire their debt. That's about a billion dollars per month worth of selling into the market. The protocol forces that to be cut in half as of next April or late April. And he also says, so you're going to see twelve billion bucks of natural selling per year converted to six billion of natural selling a year and at the same time as things like the spot ETFs increase the demand for Bitcoin. So that's why all of us are fairly bullish over the next 12 months. How many of you are bullish? Let me know. Demand is going to increase and supply is going to contract. And this is fairly unprecedented in the history of Wall Street. That's what's up now is a pretty ideal entry point for Bitcoin, according to Saylor. Also, he was recently interviewed and I actually transcribed this video clip when he was speaking on Squawk on the street. And I feel this is very relevant. Here's what Saylor says for the industry to move to the next level. We need to migrate to adult supervision. We're going to need the big banks to become the crypto custodians. We're going to need Wall Street to take a role and we need to rationalize away from the one hundred thousand crypto tokens. You know, the yo yo coins that people are manipulating to Bitcoin. Bitcoin is an asset without an issuer. It is the one universally recognized protocol that is a commodity in the space. And so when banks on Wall Street and responsible custodians are managing Bitcoin and the industry takes its eyes away from all the shiny little tokens that have distracted and demolish shareholder value, I think the industry moves to the next level and we 10x from here. Now, what's another 10x from the current price action we're talking about roughly? What is that? Three hundred and fifty thousand dollars per BTC. Send it and let's frickin go. Also quoting him here, I think the liabilities or the early crypto cowboys, the crypto tokens, which are unregistered securities, the unreliable crypto custodians for the industry to move to the next level. We're going to need to migrate to adult super vision. And I shared with you the rest of that quote. So there you have it. Let me know if you agree or disagree with the one and only giga Chad Michael Saylor. Next story of the day. This is breaking news. SBF has been found guilty in all seven fraudulent charges. Yeah, this is wild. Yeah, here we go. I'm going to read all this to you. Former FTX CEO Sam Bankman Freed was found guilty of all seven charges by a jury in his criminal trial in New York after about four hours of deliberations, meaning it didn't take long. Bankman Freed was found guilty of two counts of wire fraud, two counts of wire fraud conspiracy, one count of securities fraud, one count of commodities fraud conspiracy and one count of money laundering conspiracy. Good Lord. That's a lot of charges and it's just getting started. He'll be back in court in March to continue with some more charges to probably get guilty of. We'll return to the court for sentences by New York District Judge Lewis Kaplan March 28th. So that's the date is right before the having. Government prosecutors will recommend a sentence, but Judge Kaplan will have the final say. Now, Bankman Freed's crimes each carry a maximum sentence of between five and 20 years in prison with the wire fraud, wire fraud conspiracy and money laundering conspiracy carrying a maximum of 20 years sentence in a press conference outside the court, the New York Southern District U .S. Attorney Damian Williams called Bankman Freed's crimes a multibillion dollar scheme designed to make him the king of crypto, right? The Michael Jordan of crypto, the Warren Buffett of crypto and of one the biggest financial frauds in American history, Bankman Freed's attorney Mark Cohen said in a statement, we respect the jury's decision, but we are very disappointed with the result. Naturally, Mr. Bankman Freed maintains his innocence and will continue to vigorously fight the charges against him. Anyone here in the chat. We have over 200 people in the live. Anyone believe he is innocent? I am just curious if there's any outliers out there. Anyways, other key FTF execs, including former Alameda CEO Caroline Ellison, FTX co -founder Gary Wang and former engineering head Nishad Singh have all pleaded guilty to various charges and work with the government to testify against Bankman Freed in the five week trial. Now, Bankman Freed had pleaded not guilty to all the charges. And during his trial, he took the stand to maintain his innocence against the best wishes of his lawyers who told him to shut the what up, just saying, and marking the FTX November 2022 collapse as a number of big mistakes I made. He denied any wrongdoing in the FTX relationship with Alameda, attempting to distance himself from key decisions, which we all know is not true, according to the testimonies of their execs, Bankman Freed pinned the blame on Gary Wang for creating a function that allowed Alameda to trade funds on FTX that it didn't have and claimed he wasn't entirely sure what happened. Oh, I don't know what happened with Alameda's line of credit, which ballooned to billions in the collapsing crypto market of 2022. In his testimony, he also blamed Caroline Ellison for not focusing on risk management. How are you going to blame your ex? That's just why. Anyways, he didn't believe he defrauded FTX customers by taking over eight billion worth of their funds. Instead, he framed it as Alameda just borrowing from the exchange. Yeah, borrowing from investors without their permission is called stealing. I just wanted to point that one out. Now, Max Kaiser responded to this attorney who spoke out and he said, this is tough talk when it comes to the minor league, the drug Adderall ish coiner like SPF, but where's all the bravado when Jamie, the tapeworm diamond, the best the CEO, JP Morgan Chase, gets caught manipulating markets and defrauding the public again or the next crooked Warren Buffett bailout? You talk a good game, but you're no different than SPF. And I think Max makes some excellent points. The big dogs get away with this all the time, of course, but clearly there's levels to this ish, if you know what I mean. Now, what are your thoughts surrounding this case? How do you think this will likely continue to play out in March as they continue with the court trial facing more charges he's up against? Let me know, fam. I appreciate that. I got some very bullish predictions to share with you. In fact, I'm going to be sharing with you the top five Bitcoin price predictions for twenty, twenty four and beyond. Bitcoin continues to circle its highest levels in 18 months. Again, the annual high for the year is currently almost thirty six thousand dollars, but let's dive right into the predictions. First and foremost, Matrix Port predicts forty five thousand within two months. So two months from November would mean January. I could definitely see Bitcoin hitting forty, fifty thousand easy peasy before the halving. But let me know your thoughts. Now, that prediction came from Matrix Port, the crypto trading firm founded by Jihan Wu, himself a founder, a Bitcoin mining giant Bitmain in a blog post in late October. Matrix Port doubled down on a forty five thousand year end price targets. That's the Christmas target. Let's go, Santa, which is initially revealed in January. It was based on a handful of in -house models with Matrix Port also successfully predicting Bitcoin's October gains. Quitting them here, Bitcoin is breaking above the July thirty one five resistance showing that forty five is achievable by the year's end. And again, I think that's a very doable target. But let me know your thoughts. The next prediction comes from Bitcoin. They say new all time high pre halving. I also agree with that, especially if we get the ETF approval. I would anticipate above and beyond sixty nine thousand before the April twenty twenty four halving, but that's only if you know what I mean. We'll see how this plays out. The halving is a watershed moment. We all know the blocks of subsidies get cut in half for the miners in September. Bitcoin stated Bitcoin would surpass its current sixty nine thousand peak before April of twenty twenty four. Now they shared here, no, Bitcoin is not going to top before the halving. Yes, it's going to reach a new all time high before the halving. No, Bitcoin is not going to one hundred and sixty G's because the magnitude of every pullback is large. This means it'll peak after the halving in twenty twenty four. And yes, the target price is around two hundred and fifty thousand dollars. I love that. That's right in alignment with Max Keiser's short term target of two hundred and twenty thousand. Now, they also shared this chart. Both the all time high and the post halving two hundred and fifty thousand target came courtesy of the Elliott Wave theory charting, which we cover commonly here in the show with Bitcoin mimicking the behavior from the previous cycles. And you can see their estimation of how the Bitcoin price is likely to rise is coming directly from Bitcoin. Now, Bitcoin did, however, make room for a total of four pullbacks. As outlined in this chart, you can see one, two, three, four. Before we hit the peak at five, quoting them here, there will be one pullback before breaking to a new all time high, followed by another pullback at around one hundred and twenty five thousand. Additionally, there will be two more pullbacks after the halving, which are not demonstrated here. Now for the next one, three Bitcoin price models, one hundred and thirty thousand dollar target zone. That's right. Let's freaking go. Quoting CryptoCon here, I'm prepared for the lower prices, but the stars are aligning at one hundred and thirty for the Bitcoin this cycle. And the concept also hinges on the halving events and the next peak should come around four years after the sixty nine thousand dollar move in November of twenty twenty one. We all know everything is cyclical and Bitcoin every four years driven by the halving. Now the one million dollar question. How about a one million dollar Bitcoin price target leads us to Kathy Wood of ARK Invest, the CEO and chief investment officer, has joined former BitMEX CEO Arthur Hayes in doubling down on her seven figure price prediction when this could happen, understandably up for debate. But changing macroeconomic tides have emboldened what remains a daring Bitcoin price prediction. In October, Hayes maintained that the path to a one million dollar coin was in full effect thanks to the macro reality. Now quoting BlockWorks on the Margin podcast right here, this was shared actually on an interview. If people lose faith in the bond market and this fiat artificial construction we have created over the past 80 to 100 years, this global economy and how it has been structured, if we lose confidence in that, then the amount of money that's going to be looking for an alternative is going to be something that we have never seen before. He shared over in an interview and speaking of Kathy Wood, she was just on Bloomberg and here's what she shared when she was asked, what's a better hedge against inflation? Is it Bitcoin or is it gold? And very boldly she said, Bitcoin hands down, hands down is a hedge against both inflation and deflation. Yes, so is gold, but Bitcoin is digital. And if you look at the incremental demand we are going to see, but gold already has its demand. You know, it happened already, right? Bitcoin is new and institutions are barely involved in the young people would much rather prefer to hold Bitcoin than hold gold preach. So it's interesting that both gold and Bitcoin are hedges against deflation, but Bitcoin has been doing better recently preach and Bitcoin naturally will consider outpacing gold. I think it was Max Kaiser who said for every dollar, the Bitcoin price action increases. I'm sorry for every dollar, the gold price increases expect Bitcoin to go up by over $20 meaning it will continue to outpace gold by a factor of 20. Let me know if you agree or disagree fam. And we spoke about Kathy Wood and her a $1 million price prediction. In fact, she even has a bullish case scenario by the year 2030 of Bitcoin hitting $1 .48 million. Keep that in mind. But now let's discuss Arthur Hayes, the BitMEX founder predicting Bitcoin price to rally 2700 % taken us to $1 million per coin. And then we'll dive into the latest updates with the likelihood of the spot Bitcoin ETF being approved this month in November. According to the major asset manager, here we go. BitMEX co -founder Arthur Hayes is doubling down on a prediction. The Bitcoin is destined to reach the seven figure price. Hayes says that a monetary policy tool known as the yield curve control will act as the catalyst for Bitcoin to reach that 1 million Mark, a gain of around 2 ,700 % from the current level. Send it, let's go. Central banks use the yield curve control to influence the longterm interest rate level by buying longterm bonds as much as possible to prevent the rate from rising above the intended target. And according to Hayes, the entire U S government is enabling a loose monetary policy environment. Even as the fed continues tightening. Now the BitMEX founder first predicted seven figure Bitcoin earlier this year in March in that essay, which I covered here on the show. And at the time, he argued that China's loosening of his monetary policy would trigger Bitcoin to explode to $1 million per coin. Hayes also says the decision by the fed mid this week, uh, pause the rate hike interest rate suggests it's time to pump it up, pump, pump it up. And according to the BitMEX founder, the feds decision would trigger other central banks to also ease their monetary policy. Quoting him here over to you, BTC, let's go. I shall increase the pace of my rotation out of treasury bills and into Bitcoin and ish coins. Now that the fed had paused over two meetings, every other central bank has cover to print expect massive stimulus coming from China, Europe and Japan. So there you have it coming directly from crypto Hayes. Just blaze. Let's get it now for the moment you have all been waiting for. Let's dive into our featured story of the day and discuss a Bitcoin ETF being approved this month in November. And what would that mean for the crypto market? Let's break this baby down. We have Steven McClurg, the chief investment officer at Valkyrie investments has put forth a strong indication that a landmark approval from the U S SCC for a spot Bitcoin ETF can transpire by the month's end. Send it and let's go. The approval of the spot ETF is currently one of the biggest factors influencing the Bitcoin price as well as the entire crypto markets trajectory. You can say that again now alongside the financial giants such as black rock, the world's largest asset manager fidelity, which is about half the size of black rock. We got Vanek, we got Invesco, we got Valkyrie, one of the companies at the forefront of the battle with the SCC over the spot ETF. We also have grayscale. Don't forget the GBTC product. We have the firm managing to Bitcoin related ETFs at the moment. Now Valkyrie Bitcoin and ether strategy ETF and the Valkyrie Bitcoin miners ETF with a combined asset value of 51 .1 million at this time. And they also have active filings for spot Bitcoin ETF. Now McClurg, citing the latest amendments to Valkyrie spot, Bitcoin ETF app anticipates the SCC will issue another series of comments within the next weeks, potentially setting the stage for the approval of the 19 before rule changes by the end of the month. Send it quitting him here before anything else happens, we get a second round of comments and I believe we'll probably get those comments in the next one to three weeks. A late November approval likely means a February launch. So note that if we get the green light in November, it means the Bitcoin ETF would likely launch a few months later in February, which would be right in time again for the Bitcoin having. Now he also shared with ETF .com this interview suggesting a timeline for the SCCs response to these crucial amendments. He also argues the SCC can wait until January to ask the applicants to put the final touches on their S one filings. That's the other alternative scenario. Now Nate Geraci, host of the ETF prime pod explain that Valkyrie CIO suggests SCC can approve the 19 B fours exchange rule changes for the spot Bitcoin ETFs by the end of November and then the S one registration statements early next year. These don't have to be approved at the same time, so keep that in mind. Though they need both for the ETFs to begin trading. Now in recent weeks, the SCC has been actively communicating with ETF apps and disclose that the agency is carefully scrutinizing all spot Bitcoin ETF apps. The focal points of the SCCs inquiry have pertained to the comprehensive explanation of various risk disclosures, methodologies concerning index usage and net asset value computations, environmental risk inclusions, as well as detailed insights into custodial practices. Recent amendments to filings by entities such as BlackRock and VanEck have been augmented to eludicate how initial fun seating could be conducted and also note that BlackRock already began seeding their ETF back in October, which was last month. This is something that Larry Fink their CEO has already disclosed. Now because of that, industry experts remain cautiously optimistic. We have Matt Hogan, the CIO of bitwise asset management, highlighting lingering concerns, quitting him here. Market manipulation is still a potential stumbling block. Custody isn't a wrap, so there is still a lot of work to do, he stated. Now the anticipation isn't purely speculative. The man forecast suggests substantial interest. McClurg envisions about 10 billion bucks flowing into these products within the first one to two months post launch. While bitwise projects 50 billion in inflows within the first five years. I think that's extremely conservative. I could see trillions of inflows within five years, but hey, to each their own. Valkyrie revised its spot Bitcoin ETF filing October 30th a few days ago with an S1 registration statement submitted to the SCC outlining the Valkyrie ETF. The proposed fund shares are intended to be listed under the ticker BRRR on the NASDAQ stock exchange. Valkyrie updated their app and a part of a wider trend as several firms have similarly refiled their spot ETF apps signaling a concerted effort toward regulatory compliance and optimism for approval. Bloomberg ETF analyst, James Saferard identified these amendments as positive signals for progress and possible imminent approvals. Let me know which you think will get the green light first from the SCC. We all know it's imminent. We all know it's going to happen, but when is it going to be November? Is it going to be December? Could it be January? Could it be March? Let me know in the live poll we have on the screen. I have some bonus content to share with you before we dive into the live Q and A. This is from jury and Timur. Why is this so relevant? He is the head of macro at fidelity fidelity being a four and a half trillion dollar asset manager. He's the one who predicted a billion dollar Bitcoin price by the year 2038 and here's something he just recently shared. He shares some incredible threads I want to share with you. Bitcoin is volatile, but it's scarcity and adoption curve create the potential for it to be a high powered hedge against monetary shenanigans. I think of it as exponential gold and in this chart it shows you Bitcoin going past $1 .2 million per coin. That's pretty sexy. Gets me excited as he shares here. One of the attributes of Bitcoin is that it's a network asset and as such it's adoption curve has followed the typical S curve shape. We have seen many of the S curves throughout history and he continues here in the thread. The question, where is Bitcoin's journey along that S curve? A network assets value is driven by its adoption curve, so the slope of that curve matters a lot. Makes a good point. And when I first went down this rabbit hole in late 2020 it's adoption curve, which I defined as the number of non -zero addresses was very steep. It resembled the S curve for mobile phones during the 1980s and the 1990s, which was pretty promising. I'm going to read you a few more now. However, as the real rate narrative changed from dovish in 2020 to hawkish in 2022, the adoption curve flattened and it is now closer to the slope of the internet adoption curve from the two thousands and it has not made much progress since 2021. Now we also had some other threads which are very valuable. I'm just going to read the lead part of it with Bitcoin moving up. Once again, will its adoption curve accelerate as it did a few years ago and how does the macro trend on rates affect it? There's some very insightful data. If you want this, check the show notes below the video in the description. I'll include all of this. And he had one more good thread continuing the discussion from the recent thread on Bitcoin. I highly recommend you check this out because again, this is the head of macro over at Fidelity, one of the world's largest asset managers. So there you have it, my crypto fam and don't forget to check out cryptonewsalerts .net for the full premium experience with video and to participate in our live Q and a, and I look forward to seeing you on tomorrow's episode.
A highlight from Market Rally Continuing | Jerome Powell FOMC Meeting Update
"All right, so the FOMC meeting was in today, and there's a lot of things to talk about here. We'll break down a few things as the run. I'll play a little bit of a clip also that you guys are going to want to see today, and we'll kind of give you some predictions maybe of where this is going. My name is Paul Baron. Welcome back into Tech Path. All right, a couple of things hitting, of course, just upfront, no rate change, higher for longer, expected response from Chair Powell, but I think the scenarios that are playing out right now, and I'll kind of explain this here in a second, is what does this look like in the December FOMC meeting? Do we get another potential up or up -let kick in terms of the interest rate, or do we get a higher for longer holding pattern, which is what they've done so far? I want to jump over to Bloomberg, actually, and kind of cover in a couple of points right here. This one right here, Powell says it's likely to be true that a softer pace of growth in a soft labor market likely needed to be getting inflation back on track, that not necessarily being the case right now, softer labor and softer growth, which obviously GDP has been continuing to climb. So this is something that has been a problem for Powell. Further into this, he said that the effect right now on the Fed hikes are being seen, though. So that is this lagging element within the markets that says, hey, the Fed's been doing their job. They're causing all this to happen. But unfortunately, we haven't seen the real effect on GDP, labor, and some of the other markets. We have seen it in real estate. We have seen it in some of the securities markets. Further in this is, we'll take time. He's referring to resetting of borrowing costs, which is higher for corporate bonds and loans coming due that are refinanced at higher rates. That's the other factor that are going to be playing in here. So other things that he got into, I'm going to kind of scan up here, there's a few more notes that I had, Powell signaling that the September dot plot, this was another big one, that it may not be accurate anymore. And that one showed the majority of participants forecasting one more rate hike this year. So this is the question. And when he was answering questions from the journalists, they pointly went at him for December because the markets, when you look at the market response, even though we've seen S &P kind of adjust down, but some of the other markets, especially if you look at gold and even what's happening in the crypto markets, still trending up. And I'll show you guys some charts here in a second. We'll get into that. And also, by the way, we did a big video on Solana yesterday, precursoring some of the growth that Solana is now seeing today. I'll show you that as well. So make sure and stick around for that. I want to play a clip here from Powell in from the livestream here. Let me kind of start it right here. At the stage for achieving maximum employment and stable prices over the longer run. To conclude, we understand that our actions affect communities, families and businesses across the country. Everything we do is in service to our public mission. We at the Fed will do everything we can to achieve our maximum employment and price stability goals. Thank you. And I look forward to your questions. All right. So I'm going to pause it there for a second now. So basically, what I'm getting at here is that they have not deviated at all from going after a 2 percent inflation. And that, to me, still shows the resolve that I think the Fed is going to have during these times in which we're continuing to see GDP rise, continuing to see strong labor numbers, which we should not really be seeing, but yet still are. So either the Fed is wrong or we're seeing a huge detachment in these trailing impacts from some of these market indicators that are just not necessarily taking place in the economy just yet. Now we could be on the brink of either a rate hike that will come in December or potentially a scenario that plays out longer if we continue to see stronger GDP numbers. There was another thing that they were hitting on right here from the Bloomberg piece. This was talking about the long -term growth trend. It's around 2 percent. But right now, there's an elevated level of potential growth. This is the catch -up phenomenon that I'm talking about. And thanks to factors including unwinding of supply chain and increased labor force participation, rise in immigration, et cetera, he thinks that is, or they think, that is still the reason we're seeing this slowness of how the jobs market has been able to respond to this. Now the question will be, does Bitcoin, and in general, some of the risk assets respond to this? Because when you look at some of these no -hike responses over the past several months that we've done on the FOMC meetings, which by the way, we didn't do this one live today. Did you guys, do you care if we do these live stream or are you more interested in kind of the analysis afterwards? Let me know. Drop some comments down below. Make sure and subscribe to the show as well. But the point I'm getting at is if you look at Bitcoin, let's go over here to the Bitcoin chart, and obviously not a hot, you know, I don't think too many people were seeing or expecting too much movement anyway from Bitcoin. This is on the four hour. But as you can kind of see, just pretty much the range that we've expected, which is around this mid 34 range overall. Now does this set up though for another December run? Now remember, if you go back here, I'm gonna go to the daily chart and I'll show you something here that one of our analysts was kind of showcasing a little bit right here. Let's go back into December and we'll fly into it right here. So right here is the end of December right here. So you see this, let me kind of zoom in on this range right here. You'll see this range right here, which is kind of this sideways range that we're talking about right now, potentially. Is this something that could happen? Now could it repeat? There are a couple of things, big factors that play into January. Remember, ETF deadlines coming in January if we don't get an ETF before the end of the year. We get an ETF before the end of the year, all bets are off, we're gonna see some movement obviously with Bitcoin and some of the other markets. But the question will be, do we see that kind of lift in the market? Because when you go back and look at that, this came from December 30th right here to literally January 18th, up almost 30%. So very similar to what we've seen in this short period of time right here over this short run of where Bitcoin, of course, has grown up to around 35, 36K, and that's coming from this point right here around 26, so nice little move right there at 31%. So I'd love to get your feedback. Do you feel that this is going to continue to stay slightly up, meaning could we get a 35K hold pattern on Bitcoin during this period of time and possibly see this little ramp? If rates though increase in December, does that put us in a position where we could see that retracement? Remember, a lot of people, a lot of analysts have been calling for a potential retracement in December, or I should say over the next few months, could it happen in December if we actually get a rate increase? And at the time, if we get a retracement, then it's set up possibly for an ETF, and that of course gives you kind of these explosive market and volatility scenarios that play out into this. A couple of other things that I wanted to hit on. This was one tweet right here for Kathy Jones over from Charles Schwab, and it was kind of interesting. Two -year Treasury fell sharply following the release of the FMC statement. Market is interpreting that the statement as the Fed likely to be done with rate hikes this cycle. However, though the statement came out with, hey, we're pausing, this cycle, obviously the case, but now based on what Chair Powell was saying in the conversations and the questions afterwards is that they have not ruled out the December rate hike. And I believe, based on the way he was talking in the conference, I believe we're going to see a rate hike in December. And that's only because of the continued slowness in this market, this economic scenario. I don't think we see enough movement in the securities market unless of course there are some factors in that, and we'll get into that, but mostly it's the situation around the global conflicts that are occurring. So all of that playing into his statements today. One other thing right here, this was the S &P 500 gains close to 1%. This is just on the short period of time. And then the other thing here was his statement right here on the banking system still being resilient. So my question is, do we see any kind of pressure on, whether it's regional banks or other banks, especially as we continue to see this debt problem continue to be a major problem within the overall architecture of what's happening monetarily from the US government? So this is getting interesting because timing -wise doesn't necessarily line up with what the current market is, meaning still strong GDP, jobs aren't moving. We are seeing real estate slightly, obviously commercial is a big factor here, but does this push the Fed enough to go ahead and pull the trigger on another rate hike? And I'd love to get your feedback. Do you guys think we will see a rate hike coming in December? My point, I still believe rate hike is coming in December. I'd love to see the probability charts in about a week to see what that might look like coming from the FOMC meeting then. Another thing to be aware of, we have been tracking Solana pretty heavily today and yesterday. This of course is just a breakdown on sentiment. Big move over the last couple of days on Solana. And if you look at the charts on Solana, let me jump over to the chart real quick, almost 44 right now, waking up here to almost $47. This is up almost 14 % on the day. We look at Solana right now with many lenses, and most of it has been through the payment lens, but there's also I think some very interesting news that has yet to release. Remember Breakpoint has still got two days yet to happen, and they've been releasing quite a bit. We're getting ready to drop a video today if it doesn't hit before this one, so make sure and check that one out. But this is a good example of why and what we've been doing with Sol overall. This kind of upward trend. The big thing though is this amplification number is starting to really come in on overall sentiment, which is what I talked about yesterday, overheated sentiment data on Solana. So continue to push in that direction. We're going to be doing a full breakdown on the FOMC impact because there's a lot of fed news out along with the SEC, along with some of the regulatory scenarios that are playing out with some of our lawmakers that will break down that could affect the markets in a very interesting way in the way of an uptrend. We'll see how that goes. Of course, if you guys are listening in on the podcast, make sure and tune in here to the YouTube channel. It's the best place to get alpha like this.

And David lives in Canton, Georgia with his wife, Angel and his twin boys, David and Joshua and his daughters, Joyful and Shine. But David, great to have you on here. Thanks so much for being here today. Well, thanks so much, Sean. Always great to connect with you. Yeah, fantastic. And today we're going to talk about one of your topics that's near and dear to your heart and that's going to be all about intermittent fasting, but we're going to tie it into how this is so critically important for the gut microbiome, for diversity and for gut health overall. Yeah, for sure. You know, I'm super excited about this. Intermittent fasting was a key strategy I used to heal irritable bowel syndrome. And it wasn't something I had learned about. Like I didn't know anybody that was actually practicing it. The term hadn't hit culture yet. In fact, I didn't know anybody, any health influencer that was talking about this back in 2004, 2005. I just did it intuitively and I was dealing with constipation, diarrhea, trouble gaining weight, nutrient absorption issues. And I just felt better when I compressed my eating window like we're going to talk about. And it was a really key strategy that allowed me to heal my gut, improve my nutrient absorption, gain the muscle weight back, get my energy back and my life back. So something I'm really passionate about. So for everyone who's listening right now, I mean, this might not be a new term given that it's been popularized lately, but let's break it down. What is intermittent fasting? Can you just break down that definition? Yep. So all of us do some level of intermittent fasting because we all sleep at night. So when we're sleeping, we're not eating. And really, I think about intermittent fasting as more or less the time between. So I break it into two different periods. We have the time between our first meal of the day and the last meal of the day. And then we have the time in a sense in between that. Right. So with intermittent fasting, we're compressing our eating window. So most people are eating in, let's say, a 14 or 16 hour eating window. So let's say they eat their first bite of food at 7 a .m. and they have their last bit of calories at 9 p .m. Let's say, you know, that's kind of a 14 hour eating window, 10 hour fasting window. So most people are doing something along those lines. Intermittent fasting would have us do something like one of the more popular methods is an eight hour eating window where we're eating our meals in an eight hour window, let's say 12 p .m. to 8 p .m., 10 a .m. to six, 8 a .m. to four, you know, whatever works best for your schedule and what you feel best with. But basically, you're compressing the eating window. So your first meal, let's say, is at 8 a .m. OK, you can eat in between that, you know, that period of time. So if you want the second meal at 12 and then your third meal at, let's say, three, you know, finished by four o 'clock and then you've got a 16 hour window where you're fasting between 4 p .m. and 8 a .m. the next morning. So that would be a compressed eating window. And we use this term intermittent fasting or time restricted feeding. Now, some people will say intermittent fasting, time restricted feeding would be anything within a 24 hour window. So if you're eating at all within a 24 hour window, it's called technically time restricted feeding where you're just basically restricting the amount of time that you're feeding. And intermittent fasting would be more of like a two day fast or 36 hour fast. Anything over a 24 hour period of time would be called intermittent fasting. But most people use those terms interchangeably. But just so the audience knows, if you hear somebody talking about time restricted feeding, TRF, they're talking about this idea of compressing the eating window on a in a sense, on a daily basis, you know, to let's say eight hours or six hours or four hours or whatever it is. And then oftentimes intermittent fasting is a term used when we're talking about something more than 24 hours. Like, for example, a lot of people get great benefits doing a 36 hour fast, for example, where they'll eat dinner at, you know, let's say 6 p .m. on Saturday and they don't eat again until, you know, Monday morning or Monday at lunchtime, somewhere around that around there. Great, great, great thing to do if you're really looking to ramp up fat burning, you want to lose weight, you want to really bring down inflammation in the body can be really, really powerful. And that's an intermittent fasting strategy. Awesome, I've got so many questions for you, David, and I love it, we're going to get into it. But first of all, if we're going to be fasting, why are we doing this? What are the exact benefits? What's the point? For sure. Well, basically, when we stop eating, so of course, when we're eating for the next three to four hours, we're eating or our body is actually utilizing the calories we consumed to produce energy, right, and to produce new proteins and all the different things that the body needs to do with the nutrients we have available. So three to four hours, sometimes six hours, depending on the size of the meal, that's really going to be the nutrients we just took in. And then after that, we need a continual supply of blood glucose, right? Your blood glucose, if you ever tested, it's never going to be zero. It's only zero if you're dead. Right. And you've been dead for a while. And so you're always going to have a continuous supply of blood glucose. And the body does that by having something called glycogen, which is a surplus of glucose that we store in our muscles and our liver. And so the body will start to liberate this glycogen naturally. And we use stress hormones to do that. Cortisol, epinephrine, but their job like cortisol is called a glucocorticoid, meaning its job is actually to elevate blood glucose. So when glucose starts to drop, cortisol, some cortisol will come out to get the glucose up. And that's normal and natural. And so now we're starting to utilize our stored sugar. But our body has a certain threshold. It doesn't want to go below. So it's only going to use stored sugar up until a certain point, and then it's going to actually get into our body fat stores. And the way that it knows to get into the body fat stores is when this hormone insulin gets down. Right. So insulin has a certain threshold after we eat. It's up. It's elevated above that threshold as it comes down. The longer we go between meals, it gets below this threshold. And that tells the body, OK, now let's burn fat as our main fuel source. So instead of burning so much sugar, let's burn fat. When we burn fat, we produce a cleaner source of energy because glucose is a quick energy source, but it's also metabolically, metabolically dirty in a sense. And I say that because we produce a lot of free radicals and we drive up more inflammatory pathways when we're using glucose as our primary energy source. So in a sense, on a 24 hour period, we don't want to use a lot of glucose as an energy source. We only really want to use it as our main energy source, perhaps shortly after meals. And then also if we're doing any sort of anaerobic type activity. So for exercising, you know, doing something stressful, lifting weights, something along those lines, it's a very good, good energy source because we can we can produce a lot of energy quickly from it.

"We realized, all right, let's see if we can try to take some of this knowledge that we are now gaining and put it into bite -sized forms, because that was also a great way for us to learn more, because trying to explain something in 60 seconds requires you to really know that.

Welcome back to another episode. I'm so excited because I have two of my friends on this episode. Really excited to share Carla and Walker, better known as The Crypto Couple. Thanks so much for joining me. Thanks for having us. Thanks for having us. Okay, I want to hear a little bit about where you guys are from and how you became two of the funniest people and the most well -known in the space with your amazing videos. We kind of share similar Midwest roots and a little bit of the Eastern European flair between me and Carla. So tell me both of you a little bit about where you're from and how you grew up. So me, I was originally born in Bucharest, Romania. My dad escaped communism in 86. My mom and I came over in 93, and I grew up in Chicago, a great immigrant community in Chicago, Romanian immigrant community in Chicago is very lucky, but I always had a lot of education around money and authoritarianism just because of my background. So that definitely shaped a lot of things in my life that I didn't know they would just yet. It's definitely come into fruition now in the last three years, but yeah. Yeah, I grew up in the middle of nowhere, Wisconsin in a very small town. I think my hometown has a smaller population than the high school Carla went to. No way. Yeah, I think now it's up to about 2 ,500 people. So it's growing a little bit, but it was a very, very small town. Looking back, when you're young, it's like you can't wait to get out of your small home town. Can't wait to move into a big city and try things out, and then you get a little bit older and you get a taste of a few big cities and you start to think, man, I can't wait to get back to a small town again. It's amazing how our preferences change a little bit, but in contrast to Carla, I really did not grow up with a lot of certainly no monetary education. My parents were gracious enough to homeschool my sister and I, which was wonderful. And that was a, I'm very grateful for that experience overall, but there wasn't a lot of talk about money, financial knowledge in my household growing up. My parents did well enough to support us, but we were not by no means wealthy. We had a nice little life in a small town, but as I got older, I certainly learned a lot from Carla's dad about authoritarianism and monetary history. So I'm grateful for my American dad and my Romanian dad. Well, I can certainly relate to both of you, probably Carla a little bit more because I had the Eastern European immigrant parents as well who also grew up under communism and made sure to tell me not to trust anything that I hear, especially from the government. They were both gold bugs and all of that. So you guys met in college, right? Tell me about where you met and then your early careers before Bitcoin shifted things. So we actually, he's from Wisconsin, I'm from Chicago. Last minute, I decided to go to University of Wisconsin. Yeah, UW Madison, we met about the first, it was like the first week. Yeah, we were like 18. Yeah. So we've known each other for quite a while. A very long time. I was, I majored in industrial and systems engineering. Carla was in the journalism school, so we had journalism and business, no crossover for classes except for one site while I was still trying to chase her. People still wooed people back then. Well, she was, she said, she mentioned offhandedly that she was going to take this French class. I just wanted an easy A. Yeah. And I was like, well, you know, I could, I could parlay a little Francais. Yeah, he literally joined my French class. I was like, what are you doing? Which, which was very perfect. It worked out well, clearly, because here we sit today. But early career wise, I worked for Accenture as a, what do they call it? A digital business architect, whatever that means. Basically writing pseudocode for developers and spent about four years there before, before transitioning into a role with the family business. Where I've been working for the last 10 years. Yes. So Carla's got a little bit more time with the family business, including her entire childhood. But that was, it was nice to move out of the, the very massive corporate role at Accenture where I think there are like 350 ,000 people at that company. Like it's a small country to work in a family business where, yeah, you're, there's different types of stresses, but you feel like you're actually doing something that's more than just being a cog in a very, very, very large wheel. And like, admittedly, I, I went to grad school too for business just because like, again, realizing things now that I've gone into Bitcoin in the past, like I really was sort of in the rat race thinking that I had to get all these degrees and become this career woman. Like that was my plan for the longest time. And now here I am like about to become a mom and like doing creative stuff that I actually love. It's like a complete 180 that I literally never saw myself doing growing up. And I'm so much happier. Like it's crazy. Well, you guys are so perfect for it. Carla, did you always know that you were going to somehow end up working for the family business? And, and how did you guys come to start these creative videos that, that really have made such an important impact on the community? Because sometimes people take themselves way too seriously and you guys make it easy, but also fun to learn about Bitcoin. So if I always knew kind of, you know, when you're around a family business your whole life, I also wanted to give back because I'm very grateful for everything my parents have provided me and, you know, there's a business enabled to provide me. It's not a glamorous industry. It's like two way radio and distribution and system integration. So it's like nothing. It's very sexy. It's not sexy at all, but you know, it pays the bills. It's a job. But another part of it was my dad was always very supportive of, he always knew I was kind of a creative soul at heart. So he appreciated that I came to work for the business, but he also was very supportive when I was like, Hey, I also want to try something else on the side. So actually during the pandemic Walker and I started our own company on the side, just like to see, explore, like incubate a little startup, which we did for over a year. It's called get busy. And we were producing these hardware sensors and that was right when like the supply chain issues started. The timing could not have been worse for trying to source parts. Like we were, we needed chips and we were competing with like Sony and Nissan for chips. And actually we're still like, finally they're getting delivered in May, 2024. Like we placed these component orders like years ago. Whoa. But because we were in the startup mode, I started making content, video content again, just for the startup, which was like in the bar and nightclub industry. And I was like, Oh my gosh, I like forgot. I liked video editing. Like, you know, I'd studied some documentary filmmaking back in school and whatnot. And then once we got the news that no more manufacturing would happen for us for years, we were both like really sad and kind of depressed and on the couch. And I looked at Walker, I'm like, well, we make videos now. Like, why don't we just make a Bitcoin video? We both like, we both been on Twitter for a while. I think we both joined in like 2010 or 2011 and then discovered Bitcoin Twitter. This wonderful little sub, you know, sub vibe of Twitter. You know, probably around the start of the pandemic. 19? Well, yeah, 2019, 2020. And I'd just been lurking on there. And as you know, like we started making videos, I think May of 2021. Yeah, it was still a year. Started making crypto couple videos, May, 2021. And we had just been like, the vibes were not very great at that time. It was right after we'd blown off the first top from the initial all time high. After we like smash bought at 63. Yeah. You know, after, you know, buying like all the way up to that top and then watching it drop down to, I think it got down to like, you know, 28 at one point. And that was like in June of 2021. And the vibes were pretty harsh on Twitter at that time. And as you correctly said, people were just taking themselves so very seriously. And Carla literally looked at me and was like, you know, We had nothing to lose either. No, yeah. Like we had no audience. We had no plans. We were literally just on the couch. We were like, crypto couple has two C's like alliteration. That's fun. Let's just make a video. Ha ha. And then like it went viral, the first one on TikTok. On TikTok. So we weren't even on Twitter yet as our Bitcoin promoting personalities. This was just purely on TikTok. Like first one just took off. Before TikTok, like then later kind of shadow banned us. And now we don't use that really at all anymore. But it was your first video. It was the types of Bitcoin haters. It was like, you know, any time that's the beautiful thing about this industry is that both within it and externally, there is so much fodder for content because either people we can we can laugh at ourselves internally. There's plenty to laugh at. Oh, yeah. But there is so much more to laugh at from people not understanding it from without. Bitcoin? Yeah, I looked into it a little bit, but my managing director says it's probably going to get regulated. So hey, Jimbo, what's the score? Bitcoin is used for a lot of illicit demands, and that's what the U .S. dollar is for. Tulip mania, Ponzi scheme, bubble. I think that sums it up. To me, it's like, why do you need privacy if you have nothing to hide? We actually recommend that our high net worth clients launder their money with us to eliminate the risk of jail time. I just think we need to conserve our natural resources for more important things like YouTube or Christmas lights. Look at the price of Bitcoin, then look at the price of gold. The price of gold stays steady. In other news, Bitcoin is dead again. Back to you, Tom. And so, you know, we made it was very easy to pick like eight or 10 different people that hate Bitcoin, personify them and put it out there. And it struck a chord. And we were like, whoa, people really like this. So many people were commenting like, we need more stuff like this. So we were like, OK, like, again, no plan, no, you know, we just started accumulating costumes as we went. We had no idea that years later we'd be emceeing events or going on podcasts. Like it all just happened. I mean, if I will say anything, it's consistency. Like, yeah, we just kept producing. In the beginning, we were making over a video a day, which was a lot of work. It is crazy to think about. I mean, I can relate to that as well. I had no plans for my podcast to become my job. And I came out right around the same time as you guys. And you're but you're both so it just comes so naturally to you. I think that's why so many people love the videos. They like it's just you're so naturally funny and you guys don't take yourselves too seriously. But yet you get across these very, very important smart messages. But how did you discover Bitcoin? Did you both learn about it around the same time? Like, what's that story? It's time for a quick break to hear these messages from my partners. First up, Bitcoin Conference 2024, the world's largest Bitcoin event is coming to Nashville next year. Come join us for three full days of keynotes, panels, networking events, workshops, concerts and more. My first ever Bitcoin conference was back in 2021.

And if you use my link, you'll get 10 ,000 sats when you sign up for Spin or Spin Plus and spend at least $20 on the card. All right, back to the show. Well, I first heard about Bitcoin in like 2014. We all heard about it in college for like some, you know. It was the Silk Road days. For the obvious reasons. And I had a buddy of mine that was utilizing the Silk Road. And he was like, dude, have you heard of this Bitcoin thing? Like I have to use it on the Silk Road. I'm like, dude, I don't care. I don't want to know what you're doing. We were young. You know, just whatever, man. And boy, it's like one of those things where you look back and you're like, wow, if only I would have not just dismissed it immediately. But like most people do dismiss it immediately. Right. Like more power to the people who heard about Bitcoin way back when and immediately were like, I get this. This is the most important thing that's ever going to exist in terms of money. That was not me. That was not most. That was. Yeah. And then next, your dad. So, yeah, for that, for me, like he didn't really none of us picked it anything up in college, like the next time we actually got exposure. My dad, because he follows things closely. He was like, oh, Carla, like, have you heard of this cryptocurrency? It's a very good imitation. Like I was like, no, what's that? But I'm like, OK, I'll look into it. And at the time, I obviously did not look into it much because I was like, oh, my gosh, like I can't spend that much on a Bitcoin. So I was like, well, I'll just buy Ethereum then because it's cheaper. This was like peak, though. This was like when Ethereum was like four hundred dollars. So I was like, yeah, I'm going to buy one ETH. Good for me. And I like start telling him because we were. What were we at the time? Are we engaged? I don't know. No, not not. I don't know. We were about to be engaged. But I was like, I bought this Ethereum. And he was like, well, I was like, man, I'm pretty short on cash right now. I can't even like I can't even afford a couple of ETH. I'll just get one of these lite coins because that's like that's like the third most expensive one. So like that'll probably maybe it'll get us, you know, be worth as much as Bitcoin sometime. And I'll make a bunch of money like no Bitcoin because I can't afford a full Bitcoin. It's like, yeah, again, did not go deep at all. And then it crashes down. And I was like, I'm never touching this again. This is stupid. I can't believe I did this. Like all of this is so dumb. And then you just tuck it away in the back of your brain for a few more years. And then the pandemic rolls around. And like it was, you know, March 2020, things start to get really weird. They start shutting things down. They start at this point. I was following kind of monetary news more carefully than I ever had before, because I was like, what is going on? Where is all this money coming from? How are they just sending stimulus checks to all these people? Like, you know, I got one. And like, why did I get one? Like, I don't really need this right now. But a lot of people are in this case. There's so much money and we had nothing better to do. I mean, so that's like 2020 is when I finally went down the rabbit hole, so to speak, or my journey into the never ending rabbit hole of Bitcoin and just started like slowly with whatever, you know, I had more spare cash because nobody was doing anything. We weren't going out. We'd moved to the middle of nowhere, Wisconsin. Our expenses dropped a lot. And so it was like, okay, let me just start buying a little bit of Bitcoin and learning more. And he brought it up to me and I was like, well, I got nothing better to do. And so that's honestly what happened. And at this point, again, that was when we kind of kicked up our start, our startup. So we, you know, we're not solely focused on Bitcoin. We were just DCA into it. We were learning more about it, you know, lurking on Twitter. And then after the startup kind of went on pause, still on pause, that was when we were both like, okay, now we've been, you know, we've stacked Bitcoin up to this recent, like, all time high. And now we're still stacking as it goes down to this little bottom. And that was when we decided, okay, let's start to share, like, let's bring a little bit of levity to the space, but let's also see, like, all the education that's out there is super long form, which is great. Like, it is wonderful once you've gone down the rabbit hole to listen to a four hour podcast between a couple of, you know, guys who are really going deep into monetary theory and all these things. But you know what, for like 99 % of people when they're just starting out, that is of no help or interest. Like, I'm in the space and I still, like, don't even always want to listen to that.
A highlight from The Best Gaming Podcast #422 Bungie's Destiny in Question, Legion Go thoughts, Avatar thoughts, AW 2
"And there we go. Sup everybody. This is Keric with ACG and I'm here with Abzi for the best gaming podcast number 422. We smoked 420 so quick. Did we? Yeah. 420 was the event. No. 420 was the event. I completely forgot. Yeah. Yeah. And you didn't even put the number on that stream. Did you do on purpose? I think I went back last night and and put the number on there. I I've been looking at like trying to verify what people want to watch like what works for people because some of our podcasts get insane retention. We've got 85 % retention on a four hour podcast. It's awesome. Yeah, that's amazing. But then another will have like 55 or 60 which is more high but normal and I'm like, what do I need to do? So I've been looking at naming and stuff like that. Yeah, for sure. It's it's definitely it's definitely something I screw up. I'm not good at it. Like it's called the best gaming podcast because I'm not good at this shit behind the scenes. I'm like just dude. I'm not good. I like this is the one place where I have issues up everybody in chat. We're jereo Robert chicken wings flexing darge night. What's up, man? We had a long discussion with darge last night Eric maverick duck. I'm gonna have to read some of the discord discussion we had last night. We had a huge favorite favorite stuff, right? It was like favorite take an IP and give it to a dev and then that one is a cool question. Yeah, I like that question. It was awesome. I mean it went for like four solid hours. I went for a run with kiddies came home and they were still in there. Yeah, and I was like that's that's that's a gem. That's always cool. What about you? What like over the week? Let's see. So last we did was Friday. So over the weekend in the last couple days, anything amazing? Um, no, I've been addicted to all week to I went and watched a movie at the theater. The one with Leonardo DiCaprio and yeah, yeah. Is it good? Um, it's so paid. It's paced very weirdly like it's it's it's I liked it kind of I like the performances. I think what's his name, the one dude, the older guy, the Robert De Niro did a fantastic job. I've never seen him like, like be that way. He was like a, you know, southern kind of dude, you know, I mean, that was really cool to see. I like the story about the pacing was just it just killed it for me a little bit because they went like this and then it would go like that. You know, I'd just be all over the place. So, you know, I couldn't I couldn't, you know. Yeah. So I didn't love it. But it was it was cool. So it was more along the lines of like minutes. What the movies, three hours and 30 minutes long. Yeah, dude. Oh, my God. Dude, that's that's like birds for a lot of babies. That's a long movie. That's a long, very long. Yeah. How they prop up De Niro to be awake for three hours and 30 minutes. I have no idea. Dude, I love it. It's crazy. It's crazy. Yeah. Was DiCaprio going against type kind of thing where he does in some movies where he's like, I'm going to play Blood Diamond. He was like the South African Blood Diamond, black black market trader, phenomenal movie in this one. Did he play against type? Like, was he a nerd or was he or was he just Leonardo? He was a Leonardo. No, no, no. It wasn't Leonardo. He was very odd. Yeah. It was like different. He looked uglier, like purposefully uglier kind of. Oh, wow. More southern, more like. Yeah. He was he was he was different. He wasn't being like Leonardo or anything. It's a weird role, but he nailed it for sure.

According to top crypto analysts, I'll be sharing his timeline. Also in today's show, Max Keiser joins the Alex Jones show to predict the latest Bitcoin trends and price predictions and warns of suicide bankers that will destroy the world. Not only that, but Max Keiser gives Alex Jones a simple, very simple five question Bitcoin quiz for 10 ,000 Bitcoin worth $350 million in today's terms. I'll be breaking all this down for you. We'll also be taking a look at the overall crypto market, all this plus so much more in today's show. Yo, what's good crypto fam? This is first and foremost, a video show. So if you want the full premium experience with video, visit my YouTube channel at Cryptonewsalerts .net. Again, that's crypto news alerts dot net. Welcome, everyone, to podcast episode number fourteen hundred and forty seven of the Cryptonewsalerts pod. Today is Bitcoin's birthday, October 31st, 2023. Bitcoin is 15 years old and I'm your fearless host, JV. We have lots to cover, as we always do. So let's kick it off with our market watch. As we can see, you should be able to see Bitcoin barely in the green, holding on to thirty four thousand four hundred support. We also have ether barely in the green, a little bit of boring trading sideways action. But if we check out, you know what they say, when in doubt, zoom out. Right. Let's check out the seven day coin 360. Bitcoin's now up four percent. You got XRP up nine percent. Let's zoom out a little more and check out the one month price gains. Let's freaking go. This is a testament that October in full effect, Bitcoin is up almost twenty eight percent this month. Let's freaking go. That's pretty massive. And let's not forget, we're moving into moonvember tomorrow. So do you think we're going to surpass forty thousand? I think so. In fact, if I was a betting man, I'd bet on it. Now, if we zoom out, can we even zoom out a little more? Let's see here. Well, let's switch it up. Let's go to coin market cap dot com. We can see the crypto market cap currently sits at one point two eight trillion with Bitcoin dominance at fifty two point eight percent and the ether dominance at seventeen point one percent and checking out the top one hundred crypto gainers within the top or in the past twenty four hours. We got Celestia, which I've never even heard of before. Up sixteen percent. We got XDC up six percent trading at five cents, followed by TonCoin up five percent trading at five dollars and thirty three cents and checking out crypto bubbles. We can see the top gainers for the past week. We have a mixture. Some are in the red, some are in the green. And let's zoom out. Let's check out the weekly massive gains in the green. Let's check out the monthly. Wow. Incredible. Some of these alt coins are up 50, 60, 70 percent, which is pure insanity. E -Hacks is up one hundred and forty five percent. What about the annual? Holy moly. And let's check out the market cap plus the week and we can see Bitcoin and a big bubble at three point three percent, followed by ether at two point nine percent and checking out the crypto greed and fear index. We're currently rated at sixty six, which is greed. Yesterday, a sixty eight. Last week is sixty six and last month a forty eight, which is neutral. So there you have it, fam. Yeah. So let's kick it off with our Bitcoin technical analysis. Check out the charts with the Bitcoin price action is likely to go next. Here we go. Bitcoin's price trying to push towards the coveted thirty five thousand level. The current high for the year is thirty five thousand two hundred, but has so far been unable to progress. The rest of the crypto market seems to continue with its consolidation, with some of the alts performing better than others. So let's start with Bitcoin here. The Bitcoin price was trading above thirty four G's and seemingly pushing for the thirty five level. And right now we're right in between those two marks. Today, the price remains above thirty four, roughly thirty four five at the time of the live, but is unable to reach the coveted resistance level and is currently at a loss, but barely. We're, you know, kind of tinkering. And liquidation data is also interesting to monitor. According to Coin Glass, the total liquidations for the past twenty four hours are just short of one hundred million bucks. Most of these were long positions accounting for sixty three percent of the total. This shows that the bears were more dominant over the period. Now, the majority of the liquidations, as always, happened on Binance, which is the largest crypto exchange in the world, followed by OKEx and Bybit. And I'm curious, what's your go to recommended crypto exchange? Do you use Binance? Do you use OKEx? Do you use Bybit? Do you use Coinbase? Do you use Kraken? Let me know, fam. And let's now check out some of the technicals specifically for Bitcoin. Right now, as you can see, the oscillators on the left, we have three cell signals. We have seven neutral and one buy signal. And that one buy signal is the MACD, which you can see here on your screen. Now, if we scroll to the right a little bit, we can see for the summary, there's currently eight neutral signals. There's four cell signals and 14 buy signals, which is definitely a bullish indicator. And for the moving averages, which may be cut off on your screen, but I can read it to you. It shows you sell signals, only one neutral, only one. And we have freakin 13 buy signals right now. The market is ripe and ready for continuation of some momentum. So let's freakin go. Now, let's break down our next story of the day and discuss some technicals, which are definitely bullish for Bitcoin. As you can see here, there are now nearly 40 million addresses in profit. If you're one of those 40 million Bitcoin addresses in profit, make some noise in that live chat and let's freakin celebrate. I mean, that's a massive victory, to say the least. Bitcoin has more wallet addresses and profit than ever before. Despite Bitcoin's price being 50 percent below the all time highs. That's right. Right now, you can buy Bitcoin two for one special, but it's not going to last for long. So seize the moment, fam. The latest data is from on chain analytics from Glassnode showing a record number of addresses in the black. Bitcoin may be nearing 18 month highs, but its recent gains were already enough to spark the significant changes in investor profitability. Shout out to relaxing and meditation music. I the appreciate ten dollar super chat. Much love, much respect. Keep it coming. Let's go. Per Glassnode data, the number of addresses in profit as of October 30th was thirty nine point one million. This is the highest number ever recorded for the Bitcoin users and beats the previous peak of thirty eight point one million seen back in November of twenty twenty one. And does this date ring a bell? That's at the time we hit the all time high of sixty nine thousand. Now, at the time, Bitcoin itself traded at those all time highs and thus 100 percent of the addresses in existence with a non -zero balance were obviously in profit. And while the current spot price remains 50 percent lower than those levels, the total non -zero addresses now number forty eight point three million, as you can see here in this chart. And it's just likely to continue soaring and rising. Bitcoiners taking over the world. Yeah, I mean, in percentage terms and profit addresses, they have yet to match their performance in absolute numbers, but nonetheless, at 18 month highs of eighty one point one percent. Let's go. The tally has gone from 60 percent to over 80 percent over the past two months, as Glassnode shares here in the chart. And by contrast, addresses at a loss currently stand at just over nine million at their peak in December of twenty twenty two. Following the FTX meltdown, the total was over 20 million. Now, as reported, the past week has seen the Bitcoin price action pass multiple resistance levels while returning both the long term and short term hodlers back to profit. This in turn sparked profit taken at the much more speculative end of the hodler spectrum, especially as the market passed thirty four G's. Now for crypto analyst Van Stratton, research and data analyst at Crypto Insights Crypto Slate. This underscores the difference in mentality between the cohorts, quoting him here. Bitcoin has shown remarkable strength above thirty four thousand for the past five days while witnessing one of the strongest profit takings in the past two years for the short term hodlers. Now, long term hodlers have barely budged the six largest profit taking this year, but minimal in the grand scheme of things and accompanying the charts from Glassnode tracked these inflows to the exchanges from the long term hodlers and in profit to the short term entities as outlined here in these charts. Now, let's break down the 15 year birthday, the 15 year anniversary of Bitcoin. I mean, this is phenomenal that Bitcoin has been in existence for 15 years. Imagine if you would have knew about Bitcoin back on October 31st, 2008. Talk about a small circle. But yeah, today marks 15 years since the synonymous creator of Bitcoin, the one and only Satoshi Nakamoto, who Alex Jones claims Max Kaiser is maybe because Max holds as much Bitcoin as Satoshi. Who knows? But anyways, shared the Bitcoin white paper to the mailing list of cryptographers on October 31st, 2008. This was after the financial collapse, fam, and a date also annually celebrated as Halloween, quoting the the white paper here. I have been working on a new electronic cash system that is fully peer to peer with no trusted third party, as Satoshi famously said in the opening sentence before linking the document titled Bitcoin, a peer to peer electronic cash system. Holy moly. I mean, again, this is legendary. This is history in the making. You're witnessing firsthand the white paper proposed the decentralized system that could facilitate peer to peer transactions, which can solve the double spending problem often associated with digital currency in which it did. It proposed to achieve this via a network of nodes, validate and record transactions through the proof of work consensus mechanism, launching just two months later, officially on January 3rd, 2009. Satoshi's computer science breakthrough came on the back of other impressive developments in the cryptography and e -money spaces. The first reference cited the Bitcoin white paper is Wade's invention of B money, an electronic peer to peer cash system that never launched, but nonetheless played a key role in Satoshi's plans for Bitcoin and like Bitcoin B money. And I'm curious how many of you have ever heard of B money? We have all heard of B rabbit from 8 Mile, but B money, I've never heard of that one, proposed that participants in the system maintain a database of account balances, which keep track of the ownership of money. Transactions would be initiated and completed by a broadcast message to all participants, which would update the account balances of those involved in a specific transaction. In many ways, it could be seen as a precursor to the nose of the Bitcoin protocol, which keeps a record of the constantly growing blockchain. And I'm curious, how many of you run your own Bitcoin node? Let me know in that live chat. Fam, this process requires proof of work, a form of cryptographic proof in which one party proves to others that a certain amount of the specific computational effort has been expanded. Now, Satoshi implemented this into Bitcoin, citing Adam Back's invention of hash cash in 1997. Shout out to Adam Back, the creator of, I believe it's Blockstream, now, which incorporated proof of work to limit the email spam of denial of service attacks, as shared here by Crypto Leroy, the cypherpunks and fathers of Bitcoin, Hal Finney, he created the reusable proof of work. We got Adam Back, who created hash cash, Wei Dai, who created B money, David Shum, who created DigiCash. We have Nick Szabo, who created BitGold, Phil Zimmerman, who created PGP, Bram Cohen, who created BitTorrent, and Tim May, who is the crypto Antichrist Manifesto, and of course, the one and only Satoshi Nakamoto, who gets credited for the discovery of Bitcoin. Now, Bitcoin's timestamp server works by taking a hash akin to a unique serial number, a block transactions and time stamping, and when the block is added to the Bitcoin blockchain, which we all know. And as Crypto Shama points out here, also giving credit to everyone involved with some of the early developments for the technology that led to Bitcoin. So shout out to all of them, including Max Keiser. If you didn't know, Max Keiser has a patent, I believe the first one for digital currency back in the 90s. That's all on record, fam. So this is pretty amazing. Now, the genius in Satoshi was the puzzling of these pieces into a fully functional system. According to Lop, quoting him here, there is no single piece of the puzzle that I think is more important than the others. Nakamoto's genius was not any of the individual components of Bitcoin, but rather the intricate way in which they fit together and breathe life into the system. Preach. Now, mainstream media highlighted Bitcoin's increased use by criminals, which we know is nothing more than FUD. We got Senator Elizabeth Warren, also Cynthia Lummis pushing those FUD narratives, which suck. We also know Bitcoin became a legal tender in El Salvador, which was the country to adopt Bitcoin as a legal tender, which has been a game changer for their entire country. And I feel we're going to have many other nations lead in the footsteps of Bukele as well as, you know, El Salvador in adopting Bitcoin as a legal tender. So, yeah. Happy birthday, Bitcoin. I'm wishing you another successful hundred and fifty years after these 15 years. You know, the final Bitcoin is not going to be mine, I believe, until the year 2140. Crack me if I'm wrong, but that's a very long time from now. Now, let's break down our next story of the day. Valkyrie updated their ETF filing. We all know right now all eyes on spot ETF. So let's break down this latest development. Digital asset manager Valkyrie Investments, the latest firm to amend its spot Bitcoin ETF filing with the US SEC Valkyrie filed the updated spot Bitcoin ETF with the US SEC October 30th, which is yesterday, according to the SEC database. Now check it. The updated form as one registration statement from Valkyrie Bitcoin Fund aims to offer investors the opportunity to invest in common shares backed by Bitcoin. The shares represent units of fractional, undivided beneficial interest and ownership of the trust and are expected to be traded under the ticker symbol BRRR, just like money printer continue to go kind of cool on the Nasdaq stock market, quoting them here. The information in this prospectus is not complete and may be changed, according to Valkyrie, stating in the filing, adding the firm is not allowed to sell BRRR securities until the registration statement is officially effective. The amended filing comes about a month after the SEC delayed its decision on the Valkyrie Bitcoin Fund in late September. Meanwhile, Valkyrie's updated spot Bitcoin ETF joins at least six others recently amended spot Bitcoin ETF filings made by the following Bitwise, BlackRock, Fidelity, Grayscale, VanEck and ARK Invest. And according to online crypto ETF analysts, the ongoing Bitcoin ETF amendments can be translated as a good sign, definitely a good omen, in my opinion, of the progress and impending approvals. Valkyrie's latest spot Bitcoin ETF update is yet another evidence of movement happening behind the scenes. Bloomberg ETF analyst James Safart believes, quoting him here from X Update, Valkyrie joins the prospectus amendment train for the spot Bitcoin ETF. Things are still moving behind the scenes and following the recent amendments, at least five of the rest of the known spot Bitcoin ETF filers have not updated their filing. So expect them soon, including firms like Wisdom Tree, Invesco, Galaxy, Global X, Hashdex and Franklin Templeton. The SEC currently has a whopping eight to 10 filings at the desk of the chairman, Gary Gensler. But the million dollar question becomes, will Gary Gensler do anything about this and accept any of these spot Bitcoin ETFs? Congress is putting the pressure on Gary. He says you need to prove the spot Bitcoin ETFs immediately, with that key word being immediately. There's some deadlines that are due soon, including ARK 21. I believe it's January 10th. I personally feel we're going to get the green light from the SEC before the Bitcoin having creating the perfect storm. Let's move on to our next story of the day. We covered the ETF filing. Now let's discuss a potential $50 ,000 Bitcoin rally here incoming, according to crypto analysts, Michal Benday Pop, before I break down the latest with Max Kaiser recently on the Alex Jones show. Here we go. A widely followed crypto analyst believes Bitcoin has officially entered the bull market territory and is now primed for a rally towards $50 ,000 per coin. Send it and let's go. We got Michal Benday Pop, who shared on X that the Bitcoin bull market is here. I would agree. What are your thoughts, fam? Benday Pop predicts the Bitcoin will rally as high as $50 ,000 per coin in the coming months before witnessing a pullback and surging to a new all time high. Quitting the analysts here, I think we'll see Bitcoin hit resistance at 38 Gs, baby, but most likely will continue towards 45 to 50 ,000 per Bitcoin pre having after that consolidation and sideways action for a long period before we start making new all time highs. And this is the chart which you can see here in your screen, which if you analyze it, he appears to predict Bitcoin will see $50 ,000 in January of 2024. What is that? November or November's tomorrow. So December, two months. Send it. I love it. Right in alignment with Credible Crypto, who's predicting $48 ,000 in the next two weeks. Let's go. I hope they're both right. The halving, which had historically coincided with the Bitcoin bull run, slashes the Bitcoin mining rewards, as we all know, in half, which is slated for April 2024, under six months out. And for now, Benday Pop thinks Bitcoin's in the midst of a consolidation period and a dip below $33 ,000 is still on the table. Quoting him again alongside this chart, Bitcoin technically constructing a range here slight correction towards $33 ,300 and quickly bought up if the lower boundaries are reached. Probably sentiment will flip bearish the $32 ,800, but that would signal a great long opportunity touche. Now let's break down our featured story of the day and discuss Max Keiser, who was just recently interviewed on the Alex Jones show. He was invited back. And let me share with you a little the back story, just in case you don't know the back story. Now, back in the day, maybe it was 2014, many years ago, Max Keiser, being a kind hearted gentleman, went on the Alex Jones show and he gifted Alex Jones 10 ,000 Bitcoin. I don't know the exact value of the Bitcoin at that time, but I can tell you what the value of 10 ,000 Bitcoin is in today's prices. If you run the math, that is freakin 350 million dollars. Long story short, Alex Jones claims he lost the laptop that Max put the Bitcoin on. Therefore, he has none of it. So Max being the kind hearted gentleman he is, he said, let me come back on the show now. And he actually just released this episode yesterday. So this is brand new, breaking all these predictions and everything I'm sharing with you. And I'm going to give you a basic quiz on Bitcoin, Alex. And if you can answer these five questions, I will give you another 10 ,000 Bitcoin valued at roughly three hundred and fifty million dollars per coin. And so Alex invited Max on the show. They did the quiz. Here are some of the highlights of the show I'm going to be sharing with you. However, if you want to watch it live with me, we're going to be doing a live JV react session exclusively on Rumble after the show stream ends on YouTube. We're going to be watching it together where Max is quizzing Alex and I'll be reacting live to the video. It's something I've never done before. Live reacting to these videos, but I think it's going to be phenomenal considering it's brand new content. Many of you have never seen it before. So make sure you're following me on Rumble because it's going to be lit. But first and foremost, here are some of the highlights from this recent interview. I posted it yesterday exclusively. I was the first one to post the entire interview on X. I already got over 500 hearts, 166 retweets and over fifty two thousand people viewed it. Here's what I wrote. Max Keiser joins the Alex Jones show to predict the latest Bitcoin trends and warn of the suicide bankers that will destroy the world. And here are some of the quotes regarding his predictions when Alex Jones asked them, so where's Bitcoin going to go next? Where do we go from here? Here's what Max Keiser shared. All fiat money and gold eventually goes to effectively zero against Bitcoin because it's demonetizing gold. The same way gold demonetized silver, Bitcoin will be demonetizing gold. So sure, gold will be maybe two thousand, three thousand, four thousand dollars announced. But we're talking about Bitcoin eventually going to five million to ten million dollars per coin. So you're purchasing power in gold terms is almost basically nothing compared to what's happening in Bitcoin. Preach very powerful words. And there is another quote I believe that I shared here. Let's see if I can find it. I click back on here.
A highlight from "Solana Is DEAD..."
"They told me Solana was dead. Before I went to the conference, that's what they said. They said, don't bother going to the conference because Solana is absolutely dead. So what I decided to do was to go there and see for myself. And I want to show you guys today what I saw at the Solana conference today here in Amsterdam. This is pretty much the scenes from the dead chain of Solana. 4500 people in a room. We're going to talk about what's going on in Solana and whether Solana is, of course, a dead chain. Then I need to talk to you about something very important because we are entering a new era in Bitcoin. We have exited or we are exiting the old era. In the old era, we could front run the institutions. We were the ones who were front running the institutions. But now, we are entering a new era where we won't be able to front run the institutions anymore. The early adopter phase is drawing to a close. And soon, we won't be able to front run the institutions anymore. So we're going to talk about what that means. And I'm going to show you how the institutions are actually getting a huge type of FOMO. And when the institutions get FOMO, it's much, much, much bigger than the FOMO that we get when we're retail trading. I'm actually going to show you stats. I'm going to show you numbers. I'm going to show you everything else. A couple other things. I'm going to show you another token that's going to pump. I'm going to talk a lot about altcoins today because we do need to talk about the altcoins which are taking a break from their, if you want to call it, I'm not going to say all -time highs, but certainly of their high levels, the altcoins are taking some kind of break. And then, I think what we need to talk about is we need to talk about the Unibot hack and see whether or not we should actually be buying Unibot or not. So with all that, we've got a massive show. I'm here in Amsterdam, not the normal time as you can see. And the reason why is because I've been at the Solana conference all day, but I am here and I am bringing you crypto love and I am bringing you crypto wisdom. And I think we've got a lot to go. So let's get started. I know some of you are saying clickbait masters, but you know the truth is everyone did say Solana was a dead chain and they said Solana is dead. And today I'm going to show you exactly whether or not Solana is dead. You guys are going to help me make a decision as to whether or not Solana is dead because you need to get the information firsthand. And I don't know any other channel that brings you information like this firsthand from Amsterdam on the day of the conference. I'm going to bring you live things and I'm going to show you exactly what's happening at the Solana conference. I've got big, big, big updates for you on Bitcoin as well today because we are entering a new phase. We are entering a phase of institutional FOMO and the institutions are causing a new type of flippening. And we have to talk about this flippening and what the new type of flippening means for us. Usually the flippening is when the price of ETH refers to when the price of ETH or the market cap of ETH grows above the market cap of Bitcoin. But today I'm going to show you a new flippening, which is actually caused by the institutions and the FOMO that the institutions are getting. Then I'm going to show you a token that is going to run in the next week, just like I told you Solana was going to run and I was 100 % right. I'm going to show you the next Solana. So there's lots to do. If you want to know what the token is that's going to run, we need 1 ,500 likes. Otherwise I'm not releasing that token for you guys here today. So if you're new to the channel, smash that subscribe button, obliterate the subscribe button. There is no other channel that brings you this kind of access each and every day. And you can see the work ethic that we have around here. Even though I was out late last night, I was up early this morning. I went to a conference all day today. Right now it's seven o 'clock here and I'm bringing you crypto love and crypto wisdom, sharing everything with you. And also smash a like, subscribe to the channel. Let's quickly just go into the banter bubbles and see what's happening on the bubbles. There we go. We are in the bubbles right now. It's a mixed day. I wouldn't worry too much about this. I wouldn't worry too much about the mixed day. Let's quickly just toggle to the hourly. So it's a mixed hour. It's a mixed day. You can see Rune is at 5 .91%. But I think what's happening here is we're getting the RSI's starting to take a bit of a breather because if you look at the RSI's for the four hour, you see that they're starting to come down and they're starting to come down because the market did get a little bit overheated on the short timeframe. Not too worried because if you look at it on the one week timeframe, we're not overheated on any of the RSI's. Just remember guys, if you are in the banter bubbles, just click on this win a Bitcoin link. And then what I want you guys to do is I want you guys to go in there and I want you guys to obliterate the predictions. How it works is very simple. If you want to win a full Bitcoin, this is a real promotion. Okay. This is a real promotion. What you need to do, you need to open an exchange account with any of our exchange partners, preferably open it on Bybit because you get $30 ,000 in bonuses. Just click this button here. You'll then be taken to the sign up page. Sign up, you get five predictions. If you can predict the price of Bitcoin on the first of the first 2024 at 0001 EST on Coinbase, then you can win a half a Bitcoin. And if you've traded 10 times in your account and trading 10 times now is so, so, so easy, you will get another half of a Bitcoin. So you'll actually win a full Bitcoin. Now, if my prediction is right, by the end of the year, that'll be worth $50 ,000. So here's the chance for you to really win $50 ,000. Go to Banter Bubbles, click on the win a Bitcoin link, make your predictions. I see Novovich predicted a few seconds ago. He says 39, 40, 80. He doesn't know what he's talking about. He's way too conservative. Albert Flipsen, he was on 11 minutes ago. He said 43 ,652. He's wrong too. Let me know what you think. Let me know what you think in the comments. Anyway, let's move on to the alpha of today because I have to get from here. I need to go for dinner, and I need to go and do what you do when you're in Amsterdam. And if you've been in Amsterdam, you'll know exactly, exactly, exactly what I'm talking about. So let's get into the alpha of today's show. And I think what we should do is we should start off by looking at the Bitcoin price. Bitcoin, of course, is fighting this resistance. I told you this resistance is not going to just go away. This is the flip into the bullish territory that would give us this whole bull thing, this whole bull trend for the whole year. As it comes to the monthly, today is the last day of the monthly close. Now, I said at the beginning of October, I said that Bitcoin would close the month 23 .5 % up. It looks like I'm going to be proven wrong. Bitcoin is going to close the month 27 .5 % up. So 27 .5 % up instead of 23 .5 % up. Now, the good news is, so here's some really, really, really, real good news for you guys. The good news is that in any previous cycle, first of all, the good news is that November, as you can see over here, is the best month for Bitcoin across all months. If you take Bitcoin across all months since the inception of Bitcoin, and by the way, the inception of Bitcoin, the white paper was exactly 15 years ago. So exactly 15 years ago, we had the Bitcoin white paper written. And you can see Gary Gensler, even Gary Gensler writes this very, very, very weird message. He says, if Satoshi Nakamoto wrote it for Halloween, would we be able to tell? Happy 15th anniversary to Satoshi's famous white paper that started crypto. Any crypto companies that are tricking investors should be treating them to compliance with securities laws. This is the head of the SEC. I mean, Gary Gensler has gone absolutely crazy. Anyway, so where are we? In November is generally the best month for Bitcoin. But in this November, specifically, it's a pre -harving year. And the previous pre -harving year, we had a 21 .44 % increase in November. I think that this November is going to be different. I think it's going to be even harder. And I'll tell you why. First of all, as I said, we are moving into range 4. Range 4 takes us into all -time highs, all -time high, or previous high territory. But more importantly, we are tracking similar to all the other cycles. So if you look at all the other cycles, the Bitcoin is 113 % up since the cycle low, which aligns with the two cycles, 15 % and 18%. The first one was 116%. The other one was 164%. So far, we are tracking exactly like all the other previous cycles. But this time, we have another force at play. And that other force at play is exactly what you're seeing on the screen. It is the institutional FOMO, which is about to hit the market. Because right now, the institutions are getting a very, very, very big FOMO, a very unique FOMO. They're sitting here like we sit at the slot machines and go, come on, come on, come on. We want to buy, and we want to buy, and we want to buy. And the latest indicator of this FOMO, the latest indicator of this FOMO is Stan Druckenmiller. Now, Stan Druckenmiller is one of the world's most renowned investors. And yesterday, he was interviewed with Paul Tudor Jones. And I want you to hear what he said about Bitcoin. Because this just shows the type of FOMO that the institutions are trying to get. We're living through a marketing exercise that has been done. Since Larry Fink went up and said that Bitcoin is a safe haven and a store of value, we're moving into this new era of institutional FOMO. We've had many other institutions come out. And the latest of these is Stan Druckenmiller. Listen to what he said.
A highlight from SBF Trial, Day 15: Prosecutors Hammer Bankman-Frieds Contradictions With Reams of Evidence
"The paperback version of my book, The Cryptopians, is out now. It contains a new afterword covering recent developments in crypto since 2021, when the book went to press. Plus, this version names the person I suspect to be the DAO hacker. In case you never got to read the book in hardback, or, like me, you like to read paperbacks or bedtime reading, order today. Check our newsletter and the show notes for the link, or just search for it at any of your favorite bookstores. It's The Cryptopians, idealism, greed, lies, and the making of the first big cryptocurrency craze. Thanks for reading. Thanks for tuning in to the day 15 recap of the SPF trial. Sorry it's a little bit late. I had to head to the courthouse at an ungodly hour in order to try to make it into the courtroom on Monday. And while I succeeded, it made me unable to work on the video Monday evening. Sam Bankman -Fried's attorneys ended their direct examination of their client Monday morning, allowing the government to cross -examine SPF for four hours. During that time, Assistant U .S. Attorney Daniel Sassoon relentlessly highlighted contradictions in his testimony against previous statements, severely undermining his credibility and potentially ending Bankman -Fried's chance to win over a single jury member. The prosecution's intense and relentlessly devastating interrogation of the defendant repeatedly SPF's used own words against him. When he would evade her questions or not admit to an act or a statement he had made, she would pull up audio, video, and print interviews of Bankman -Fried, testimony he sent to Congress, memos to himself, internal Alameda or FTX documents, spreadsheets, etc., in which his own words or actions contradicted his testimony. At one point, she raised the fact that the defendant had months to look over the government's evidence. The inference was that he had chosen to testify under oath in contradiction of the evidence anyway. Sassoon's cross -examination was a seemingly endless presentation of direct evidence of SPF's previous statements contradicting his current or recent testimony. She began her questioning by saying, Mr. Bankman -Fried, you testified a bunch about Alameda. Up through November of 2022, you owned 90 % of Alameda, correct? With her voice ringing out clearly in the courtroom. The energy of her statement shouted confidence. Early on, Sassoon questioned whether Bankman -Fried recalled saying in 2022 that he was, quote, walled off from Alameda's trading. He responded, quote, I would say I was not involved for the most part. I would not say I was not involved at all in any way. Pulling up a signal chat composed of Bankman -Fried, Caroline Ellison, Sam Tribuco, and Ben Shia, Sassoon pointed out that, in the messages, Bankman -Fried expressed his desire to buy MAPS tokens to decrease Alameda's time -weighted average price of the asset. Although he did not agree that that was trading, Sassoon also brought up SPF's instructions to Ellison to properly hedge, which he then admitted is a form of trading. Sassoon raised the many media interviews he conducted after FTX's bankruptcy. She got him to agree that, as CEO, it was important for him to be truthful and precise when talking about FTX. Then Sassoon played a clip from a Twitter Spaces in which he said, quote, I was intentionally not getting involved in Alameda because I was concerned about a conflict of interest. She read aloud a part of a Financial Times article about Alameda that said, quote, the FTX founder insisted that he had walled himself off from trading and risk management at the Alameda research trading firm. Another contradiction she pointed out was in his public support for regulation and customer protection versus his private statements on it. She asked him, quote, Do you recall, yes or no, telling your followers on Twitter in October that your support for regulation was contingent upon protecting customers? Though he claimed he did not recall, she showed a tweet from him saying exactly that. Then she showed him contradicting himself by drawing up a screenshot of his Twitter DMs with journalist Kelsey Piper, which were published in Vox. Sassoon read aloud Piper's question, quote, You said a lot of stuff about how you wanted to make regulations, just good ones. Was that pretty much just PR, too? And then Sassoon asked SVF to read aloud the last two texts in his response. He said in front of the jury, quote, Yeah, just PR. Fuck regulators. Sassoon's next question was, quote, You called members of crypto Twitter, which included your own followers and customers, dumb motherfuckers, right? He admitted calling, quote, a specific subset of them in private conversation that way. One recurring theme was Bankman Fried's inability to answer basic questions about FTX. He responded, I may have or something similar to the following questions by Sassoon. You said publicly while you were CEO of FTX that FTX had reformed how crypto exchanges worked, didn't you? You recall saying that you had built a responsible system. Do you recall describing FTX as a thoughtful exchange? Do you recall describing FTX as having a healthy take on risk management? Do you recall saying that you were providing clarity and transparency to the crypto system? Isn't it true you also told customers that there always has been regulation in crypto and we always have had duties? Over and over again in public forums, you described the FTX platform as safe, correct? In October, you also told the public that customers mattered more than anything, didn't you? You even tweeted that lying to customers breaks sacred rules of conduct everyone knows to follow, didn't you? In your testimony, you described how the risk and clearing model for FTX International's platform worked, right? Since he so often claimed to not remember what he had said, Sassoon often showed evidence of his prior statements. For example, she asked SPF to read his tweet from August 9, 2021, which read, quote, and as always, our users' funds and safety comes first. Sassoon also introduced Bankman Fried's testimony in front of Congress in a document titled FTX's Key Principles to emphasize how SPF would lay out how FTX offered protections for investors in a multitude of ways, including the maintenance of adequate liquidity as a means to ensure that customers could withdraw their funds upon request. At point, Spankman Fried led his annoyance with Sassoon's show. For instance, when she asked him to read a phrase on a document, after he read a different part of the text, she redirected him back to the phrase she wanted him to read. Instead of reading it directly, he said, quote, the first word is preventing. The second word is clawbacks. The prosecution showed that SPF's testimony around the government's core allegations was also inconsistent with his prior statements and actions. When the prosecution brought up the Google spreadsheet created by Ellison that had eight tabs, seven containing doctored versions of Alameda's balance sheets, Sassoon's and Bankman Fried's back and forth on whether he remembered the spreadsheet took up four pages of the transcript. He said, quote, I don't recall it being in this particular document. I remember receiving a document that at least looks like one of the tabs on it. I don't remember exactly what it said, etc. Sassoon finally showed the Google metadata, which revealed that he looked at the document on June 19th, 2022. She also pointed out that by the time of his testimony, he knew that the government had gotten metadata from Google about this document. And though she didn't say it, the implication was that he'd chosen to say something under oath that directly contradicted the evidence anyway. Sassoon brought up Bankman Fried's testimony from Thursday's evidentiary hearing, in on what they could do with those funds, that they could buy muffins if they wanted. Then she pointed out that there were rules for when customers could withdraw borrowed funds. They could do so if they had spot margin enabled, and that if they withdrew money, they needed the borrow to be collateralized by assets on the exchange. Although he said he wasn't sure about the rules about collateral on the exchange, she pointed out that that was an essential feature of the liquidation engine, since it could not liquidate assets it could not access. And that, in fact, he had given this testimony to Congress under oath. Under her questioning, he admitted that there was only one customer besides Alameda that was allowed to withdraw money from FTX by pledging outside investments as collateral. That was a firm, Cryptolotus, that he said had a junior employee with whom he was friendly. However, Cryptolotus was allowed to withdraw only $100 million. Later on, she drew up an FTX line of credit agreement. She began reading one of the terms of the agreement, which began, quote, Then, she asked SPF to read one of the points below it to finish the sentence. He said, quote, The prosecution also asked Bankman Fried about his more than $600 million equity stake in the trading app Robinhood. Bankman Fried had purchased a large number of Robinhood shares via Alameda Research, which Notre Dame professor Peter Easton noted was primarily funded by FTX customer money. Sassoon and Bankman Fried had a back and forth to establish whether he was the sole member of Alameda's board of directors, highlighting the defendant's tendency to avoid responding in direct answers. The tension evolved to the point where Judge Kaplan jumped in to clarify, asking Bankman Fried, Sassoon asserted that after FTX declared bankruptcy, SPF filed an affidavit to lay claim to the Robinhood shares. Then she asked him whether FTX customers could access their deposits at the time SPF filed the affidavit. His lawyer, Mark Cohen, objected, and the lawyers went to the sidebar where Sassoon defended her use of the affidavit by saying, Judge Kaplan overruled the objection. Because of the competing versions of SPF's and Sun's testimonies, Allen may provide outside corroboration to one of them.

A highlight from SBF TRIAL Podcast 10/31: Was Sam Bankman-Fried Taking the Stand a Huge Mistake?
"Welcome to the SBF trial, a Coindesk podcast network newsletter bringing you daily insights from inside the courtroom where Sam Bankman -Fried will try to stay out of prison. Follow the Coindesk podcast network to get the audio each morning with content from the Coindesk regulation team and voiced by Wondercraft AI. An observation from sleep -deprived day 15 of Sam Bankman -Fried's criminal trial. Prosecutors embrace the inevitable outcome of male pattern baldness. Defense lawyers don't. This newsletter offers exhibit D, U .S. Attorney Damian Willems. The sovereign district's top cop strode into Manhattan's highest courtroom around 1130 a .m. Monday, his freshly shaved head glinting final twists of a big, big case, as one U .S. Marshal called it, against a defendant represented by two balding lawyers older than he, Mark Cohen, big bald spot, and Chris Everdell, small bald spot. I might have some insight into why prosecutors but not defense lawyers rock shiny crowns if I hadn't gotten to court nearly 11 hours earlier. Probably it would be something witty about the government's confidence in a case that the U .S. Marshal called a big W for Damian. Yes, let's run with that. Williams's deputy, Danielle Sassoon, is definitely not bald. She arrived donning a hairstyle my female colleagues in the press corps identified as a blowout. Sassoon's cross -examination evisceration of the alleged crypto fraudster was hard to watch. Determined to highlight inconsistencies in the former crypto chief's alternate history, the Assistant U .S. Attorney leveraged his prolific history of tweeting, interviewing, and testifying before Congress about FTX's purported greatness and safeness. She wanted to catch Bankman -Friede in a lie. After four hours, she'd at least gotten the next best thing. Evidence he's is a very unreliable narrator. Would you agree that you know how to tell a good story? Sassoon asked Bankman -Friede early on, prompting someone in the gallery to guffaw. Bankman -Friede audibly bristled at Sassoon's tactics. He taunted her in a sing -songy cadence when told to read FTX materials that contradicted him. His unyielding yeps started low on the Y and finished high on the P. He spent most of cross -examination repeating variations of I don't know sixteen times like sounds plausible twice I may have seventeen times I don't recall twenty -seven times and I'm not confident three times when asked about his own words. I can explain it if you want, Bankman -Friede offered on a handful of occasions where Sassoon forced him to accede into damning characterizations. She never took him up on it. His responses weren't always responses. Judge Lewis Kaplan reprimanded Bankman -Friede for avoiding prosecutor questions and interjecting his own. His gaze stayed mostly on Sassoon, but sometimes he darted to the jury box. There, seventeen pairs of eyes may have shot back a mix of skepticism and by the end of the day boredom and perhaps a bit of despair. Some jurors were growing visibly tired of Bankman -Friede's waffling I don't remember defense after four weeks of trial. A few new sleepyheads drifted off. Their get -on -with -it mentality was shared by Judge Lewis Kaplan, the press corps, and even Williams. He and his red folder marked confidential walked out of the courtroom early. Sassoon, however, shows no signs of letting up. She hasn't yet gotten a smoking gun out of Bankman -Friede, despite his waffling, but that's only because he spent so much of their standoff acting like the guy who already shot it and forgot. She'll go for another two hours of cross -examination today. The overflow room was collectively losing its mind at Bankman -Friede's testimony. It's not just what he said, but how he said things. He repeatedly said he didn't remember telling reporters key details about Alameda or creating documents acknowledging FTX and Alameda's financial ties. And every time he did, AUSA Sassoon would follow up with let's bring up government exhibits, something or other, in which Bankman -Friede said exactly the thing she was asking about. He gave the impression he was being shifty, despite the fact that government witnesses Gary Wang and Nishad Singh had similar responses to topics they said they did not recall. It's possible this is due to the rain. It was absolutely miserable yesterday. But far fewer people showed up at 9 o 'clock a .m. on Monday than had on Friday. There were maybe just north of 50 reporters and members of the general public by the time the courtroom and overflow room opened, though a second overflow room was still needed by lunchtime. Sassoon tried to pin Bankman -Friede on marketing FTX International as a safe exchange, as opposed to FTXUS, including by showing the end title card from an ad. No one picked up on this in court besides Danny, but the end title's fine print makes it clear the ad is for FTXUS. Looking forward, Assistant U .S. Attorney Danielle Sassoon anticipates spending another two hours or so cross -examining Bankman -Friede on later today. Once she's done, Defense Attorney Mark Cohen expects to spend maybe one or two more hours conducting a redirect examination. Assuming this gets us to maybe just past lunch, the Department of Justice does plan to present a rebuttal case. Prosecutors plan to call two witnesses, an FBI agent and an employee of Apollo Global Capital, a firm that was involved in talks to potentially rescue FTX last year. Former General Counsel Ken Sun and Bankman -Friede have both provided competing versions of what exactly those talks looked like. Judge Lewis Kaplan remains noncommittal with regard to the jury charge conference, saying he'll have more when the fat lady sings, an opera reference. Given that both the DOJ and Defense previously estimated needing two to three hours each for closing arguments and the judge expects a long conference, we can safely assume this will take us well into Thursday.

A highlight from PEPE Coin Is Back! New All-Time Highs Incoming?
"Pepe is once again one of the strongest performers in the market, rising over 82 .43 % over the past week. So what does this mean for the crypto market and is Pepe officially back? Should you long? Let's talk about Pepe in today's video because something is definitely happening here and I think there's actually a really interesting trade around Pepe and the meme coins at the moment that I want to get into. But firstly let's talk about actually how Pepe rose to prominence. We know that it was essentially just this random meme coin that seemingly came out of nowhere and took the internet and of course the crypto world by storm when it launched. I mean just look at its website it's a pretty janky looking website not so professional but they had the power of community behind them and they became quickly a fan favorite on twitter which resulted in the price of Pepe absolutely skyrocketing capitalizing at a 1 .5 billion dollar valuation. This made it the third most valuable meme coin in all of crypto after Doge and Shiba for a brief period of time. This made early buyers extremely rich. In front of you you can see the top 10 biggest profitors from the Pepe trade with the number one place making 14 million, number two making 14, 14, 11, 4, 3, 3, 4 people made absolutely crazy money on Pepe and it wasn't just the team and the insiders and these sort of people that made money off Pepe it was your normies as well. I mean even myself if you remember back into the earlier of the year Pepe was actually my best trade of the entire year. Hustle as well called a 10x on Pepe and did really well. Even David from the trading competition actually shorted Pepe and made a bunch of money there and actually ended up winning the Bybit trading competition a 100k prize. So there was definitely a lot of trading opportunities around it and it made a lot of people rich at the time and it was one of the most explosive and powerful trades of the year. But ever since then things have just seemed to be getting worse and worse for Pepe. Things really took a turn on the 25th of August where we saw some weird movement in terms of the changes to the Pepe multisig. You can see this user here pointing out that the Pepe multisig wallet changed the threshold to make transactions to just two out of eight signatures which was of course a red flag and then the Pepe coin official twitter came out and said that they were actually experiencing internal conflict and essentially some of the team members were being led by big egos and greed and they had to get rid of them and make a bunch of changes in the process. So this obviously resulted in the token absolutely crashing in price and things were made a lot worse by just a couple weeks later their official telegram being hacked. So it seemed like things were just getting worse and worse and worse for Pepe and as you can see the chart did not respond well. From its retest of the range high it dropped over 56 % so despite it being one of the best performing coins at the time and actually relative strength wise versus bitcoin and a lot of the other altcoins it took an absolute nosedive and smashed through its lower support band. So that's the recap but what is happening now? Well of course bitcoin is absolutely pumping and there's more interest on the crypto market at the moment. Now meme coins in general are generally your crypto retail pulse that indicate retail's proclivity to investing crypto and interest in crypto and although I don't think retail's fully come back to crypto I do think that it's some sort of measure that the market is coming back to crypto. So that's one thing to observe but bitcoin of course performing super strongly is still leading most of the altcoins. So although there are some outliers like Pepe as you can see here that are performing really well bitcoin is still overall leading the altcoin market as you would expect at this stage in the crypto cycle. But there's a reason why Pepe is leading it's because of a couple really powerful announcements that have started to garner hype back in the crypto community. So of course Pepe is some sort of retail pulse for crypto when retail comes back they like to speculate they buy things like Doge, Pepe you know all your favorite meme coins but it's not just that being the reason why Pepe is rising in price it's the fact that there's been a couple major announcements. The first one happened on the 24th of October which was three days ago where the team announced that seven trillion Pepe were burnt which is around six million dollars worth and they also announced that they brought on a new team of advisors to guide Pepe forward uses for the remaining 3 .79 trillion tokens attributed to the original team for strategic partnerships and marketing opportunities are currently being explored. Then it was revealed that 169 billion Pepe from the team worth 200k was converted to USDT and is being transferred to cover the cost of strategic partnerships and integrations that we look forward to announcing in the coming weeks. So pretty much this original wallet that held a lot of the Pepe which was one of the reasons why people were becoming extremely skeptical of the project is essentially being sold off slowly or burnt in order to benefit the project. I think the burn was a leap of good faith at least in terms of extending an olive branch to the community after some of the hardship that they have experienced this year which no doubt took a knock on the fundamentals of Pepe and I think this announcement just goes to show the power of announcements at the moment given the fact that bitcoin is now starting to exhibit more positive price momentum. Typically when you get positive price momentum in crypto this tends to lift all ships in terms of projects starting to become a bit more comfortable with making major announcements that they may have been delaying due to market conditions. So as market conditions improve typically you see more announcements the projects that have good announcements clearly can create a positive effect for the token price as you can get some hype back into the narrative and this is something that Pepe is clearly doing right now but it's also logic that you can apply to many other projects in crypto to try and time these announcement pumps or at least trade around major announcements going to be lots of opportunities I think especially if bitcoin holds up over the next few months to trade altcoin news and altcoin announcements. So what's happening with Pepe now in terms of price and where do I think it's going next? Well firstly the fact that they are willing to be strategic with their treasury here and the fact that they're also willing to come out with major announcements I think is a bullish thing for the token no doubt justifies to some extent why the token is pumped in price and I would actually be interested here if bitcoin holds up to maybe take some long positions on major pullbacks I never think it's wise aping into a major pump like this especially when you're in the mid range of a trend and Pepe has really clearly defined trends that it tends to stick to but if you get any major pullbacks into key zones and you could mark out this 110651 level here as a key zone in the mid range and then your next key zone for me is actually the range low at 84. If you do get consolidation around these zones or you see the price starting to reverse I don't think it actually is a bad play considering there's some hype coming back if bitcoin holds in price big caveat on the if because of course you don't want to buy into the hype and then bitcoin sells off and then you're stuck with a Pepe bag which ends up retracing. I also think there are a few bag holders that are underwater and are probably going to start taking profit in this zone so I don't think you're going to miss out on the trade if you don't long today but I do think it's an interesting one with some of the hype coming back the announcements for Pepe I'm certainly not shorting this I'd more be leaning towards the long side of course not financial advice do your own research of course but for me that's where I'm leaning and actually for Pepe this demonstrated a really important thing one of the doubts and skepticism that I had over the past couple months was the fact that a lot of the FUD impacted the project what would the community then think of Pepe because it's all community driven right the entire project is based on sentiment it's a meme coin if sentiment turns for a meme coin then it becomes not sustainable as a trade and it can end up dying off we've seen a lot of meme coins come and a lot of meme coins go due to FUD and due to the narrative just dying off and of course this runs the risk of happening with Pepe considering the FUD that it's experienced but the fact that it's responded so well to positive news and positive announcements being teased actually gives me a positive sign that maybe the market is still respecting Pepe as a genuine meme coin alongside other meme coins like Doge and I had a thesis back earlier in the year that Pepe could actually outperform Doge next cycle this was back in June 2023 and the logic I used was Pepe has less underwater bag holders people are a bit fatigued by the Doge meme there's more of a discrepancy in market caps so thinner liquidity so it's easy to pump the token price a few good reasons but over the past few months I was reconsidering that stance because I have started to acknowledge that Doge has a really strong narrative behind it the Elon factor it has more staying power retail knows Doge more so when retail is getting back into crypto they tend to know what Doge is whereas Pepe is more of like an on -chain thing that was born this year amongst the crypto degens right so I've come around on this thesis to a relatively neutral territory but I've kind of come to the conclusion that both I think can become bonafide plays Pepe front runs Doge because it's more of a crypto community play whereas Doge is probably better for your general retail entry into crypto which you haven't really seen yet I know at the start of the video I said retail is coming back into crypto but that's happening in very small amounts and that that kind of retail is the retail that was already in crypto to some extent the retail that I'm talking about with Dogecoin that could come in later next cycle those participants maybe haven't ever used crypto before or only dabbled with crypto during the bull run so I think Doge appeals more to those guys so now just an update on this thesis I kind of sit in the middle here I think Pepe is over the past few days at least exhibiting that it is willing to respond which is obviously a great sign for the fundamentals of Pepe and the burn has gone a long way to justifying this repricing because obviously there are less tokens in supply now but I think that's also gotten some hype back for the token which is great because meme coins are built on community and meme coins are built on hype but I also certainly respect the Doge trade and that's why I'm saying I'm sitting more neutral in this trade now because I just think Doge as a DCA spot hold is not a terrible bet to be honest going to next cycle so that's my opinion on Doge so in terms of trading Pepe now I did mark out some of the key levels before but I just want to acknowledge once again how well Pepe has kept structure I mean pretty much bounced perfectly of this level at the 147 zone had nice bounces had a pretty clean rejection retest rejected again tagged range this low and has actually reclaimed and also tagged on the way up in the form of a retest so pretty much Pepe gives perfect retest I don't know what it is but for some reason this obeys market structure really well and it becomes really easy to trade around these key range high and range low levels if you want to take the technical peak of Pepe then this becomes mid -range and this becomes range high but in the lower time frame so the one hour and the four hour these become your range low and mid -range but it's mainly just semantics easier three zones that you want to take major trades off both to the short side and the long side for me right now though as I mentioned before leaning more towards the long side in terms of Pepe as a long -term bet I actually don't mind it it's a risky one it's a speculative one I fully acknowledge that Doge is the safer play it's hiring market cap retail knows it Pepe has some inherent risk given the fact that it went through what it went through with the internal team conflict that's never a good sign for a project so clearly some red flags but due to the market cap being a lot less we know what happens when it pumps it pumps harder and this was very clear on on the first week that it launched what it ended up doing in terms of price so that's something to keep in mind in terms of the fundamentals in terms of centralized exchange data a few interesting data points to look at here you can see Pepe volume been spiking over the past few days if you look on the monthly chart we've seen a lot of interest coming back as well open interest for Pepe also starting to peak here at a hundred million dollars which is quite a lot I mean for recent times but I don't think Pepe's hit that since inception really since it first launched on exchanges so open interest starting to come back meaning people are starting to trade it more obviously that involves some leverage as well more liquidations which involves more general trading activity so the metrics are starting to doge but I actually want to look at how it could potentially affect the crypto market this isn't necessarily some insightful observation but I mean it gives you a little bit of a look into what happened last time Pepe obviously pumped during May it hit its peak roughly on May 5th you can actually see when Pepe started to peak Bitcoin started to actually have its huge sell -off and I don't know if you remember back in May but all the on -chain alts started to tank after Pepe started tanking so it's interesting that Pepe actually marked the local top back then a lot of the time market tops in the short term are indicated by crazy meme coin blow -off tops and although Pepe isn't indicating that it's had a blow -off top yet it's something to keep note of given the fact that Bitcoin dipped last time it's not an indicator I would get super bearish off the back of but it is just something to note definitely watch Bitcoin here and when Pepe starts pumping you definitely have to take note but it's also a sign that some of those guys that were on the sidelines those retail guys are getting interested again but one plausible explanation for the pump is not just that it's the fact that they had a major burn which obviously impacts price because when you cut off a large amount of the supply it's got a reprice to the upside although it still wasn't a burn that was in it was six million dollars it's not in line with the market cap of Pepe which is currently sitting at what is it 500 million dollars substantially more right so that's something to look at as well something that I've been doing in terms of trading on all -chain altcoins but also a coin like Pepe which is on a lot of the DEXs and not on all centralized exchanges is using an application like Kyber AI to actually get data based on the bullishness or bearishness of the coin using on -chain analytics so if you haven't tried this out there's a link in the description below to Kyber AI you'll actually be able to see when Pepe shifts from bullish to bearish or bearish to bullish territory which can help you get for confluence your trade entries alongside TA so if you haven't already link in the description below to Kyber AI it's completely free search up the Pepe token and you'll be able to get a lot of really interesting data that's AI generated from Kyberswap's machine learning algorithm to get information on the on -chain data price analysis of Pepe and one more reminder before I go if you want to win half a bitcoin all you need to do is go onto Bantle Bubbles which is an amazing application and enter in your UID your price prediction for bitcoin on January 1st and the closest person will win half a bitcoin all you need to do is have a Banta account to Bybit or Bitgett or Coindw there's a link in the description below to Bybit or Bitgett if you want to sign up claim those bonuses you'll need to enter your UID once you enter your UID you can put in your price prediction and you can submit your prediction and if you're closest you win half a bitcoin you can see most people here guessing that bitcoin is going to be bullish by the time January 1st rolls around you can see a lot of green predictions here so enter your prediction do you think bitcoin is going to be hitting some of these targets like 52k like some of these people are suggesting super interesting stuff I'm going to leave a link in the description below to Banta Bubbles and the links you'll need to sign up if you don't have one of those exchange accounts already as well as of course Kyber AI as well are you bullish on Pepe long term let me know in the comments below and I'll see you in the next one.
A highlight from BITCOIN BREAKS 35K - EMERGENCY PRESS CONFERENCE - Discover Crypto
"Hey, everybody. How are we doing? We're looking at Bitcoin breaking out. We're going to have some TA experts. We're going to have some macro experts. We're going to have some people just looking at about the geopolitical situation. Does that have anything to do with what we're seeing now? Go ahead. Who do we want to go first? Should we look at the TA? Let's do it. Let's do it. Well, yeah, I got the chart up right here. You know, first thing I got, you know, like every one of us, I believe everybody got texts from people. I wasn't looking at my phone. I'm a little superstitious. I was working out for the first time in six months. Is this now going to be a thing that I need to work out every day so the market pumps? Well, look in here. This is a one -hour. Let's look at a more respectable timeframe. The same chart I showed this morning on Discover Crypto, just we weren't really paying attention to this line because we weren't anywhere near it. We're down over here. But we got this massive pump, got resistance right at this level, which is this ties all the way back to January. Basically, the year beginning bull run bullish pump back January 2023. Also with support here, support here. This is where we broke down in this current range that we were trading in. But we moonshot up here right to this resistance level. We broke that 32K. I was talking about what happens when we break 32K? Transport up. So how do you guys feel? What are you seeing? Hey, yo! What's up, everybody? Just so everybody knows. Cracking a cold water to that one. Yeah, this is the impromptu thing. We got our YES. Our YES powder, which gives you energy and keeps you motivated through these charts. But what are you seeing on the charts, Tim? You want to share your chart? Yeah, I got to share my screen though, don't I? Let's see here. On the bottom with the up arrow. Now, yep, CSCSCSC. Here we go. Yeah, I mean, it's just nuts. I mean, ultimately, the explosion. If everyone was wondering, why did we explode? Like, I was watching on the chart when we got above 32K and it just went nuts. And then we retraced. And of course, I decided, you know, like, hey, let me put the phone down and go spend time with family tonight. And then it just continued getting nuts. You guys can see here volume. Volume right here. When we got above 32K right there, you guys can see there's a lot of volume here at that value of your high at 30 ,500. There's still some. But as you kind of creep towards that 32, there's a huge gap. And then where does it start picking volume back up at? Right about 35 ,000. And of course, 35 ,000 is a nice round number. There's probably a lot of people who put in sell orders at a clean number rather than a broken one. But you can look if you go down to like three minutes, you know, the three -minute chart, it did not take long. You know, I was sitting here. I thought once we broke the high from back where we head and shoulders gone now, by the way, we broke that high. I said, all right, watch out for 32 seven. Well, guess what? Within six minutes after breaking 32 seven, we wicked up here to 35 on the dot. And then immediately within the next six minutes fell back down pretty close. And then now we're kind of finding some support where right there around that 32 seven, that 32 seven is coming in because that's the trend line of resistance. If you were to connect the previous two highs in April and then again in July, that's that little area. So we're continuing to to justify odds, really. I mean, this I was talking with some people in Discord. There was nothing that charts could have prepared you for this crazy, crazy of a rally. Everyone expected it to resist at some point. So I got to I got to pause you there for anybody that's been in the markets just for the last four or five months bored out of their mind. You didn't know what we were talking about. Well, you didn't know what we were talking about. We were talking about God candles. This is what this is known as a daily God candle. This is breaking through resistance, no stopping, no levy, no break. Now the question is, do you just jump in, Tim? Do you just jump in and jump on this green candle or do you wait for a little bit of pullback? Well, no, you don't. And I want to I want to I want to be a sore subject to everyone's memory. And I'm not saying the same thing's going to happen. So let's start off by saying that. But remember the God candle we got on XRP not that long ago. Again, I'm not predicting an exact same movement where this God candle, technically speaking, it could very much happen when we go back to where the God candle started. But XRP this just taken off here back in July and then slowly working its way back down. You know, I almost see this as we've had a fantastic weekend like it is Monday. But this weekend was a fantastic, explosive, odd, defying weekend. But what we might have just seen is like the final fireworks, like when you go to like the Fourth of July or New Year's show where it's just really cool. They're going left and right, blue, green. And then that last the last 10 seconds, they just go ham. And that's what this really felt like. But you're also going to see while the four hour chart we didn't match, let's go the hourly chart. There was I think when we go lower timeframes, it's not as much. But the volume, finally, that was a complaint I had Kelly this whole time was the volume other than the wick where we had the fake news with ETF. There really wasn't any volume. Well, we got that here right at the end. And of course, that's mixed with Yeah, it's still a big green candle. That's a big green wick on the top side of it. So I'm not gonna say 100 % certainty. That was the end. We absolutely could keep going. But it definitely had that finale -esque explosion. Well, yeah, I want to share some here situation.
A highlight from $35K BITCOIN! The Next Move Will Happen FAST! (ACT NOW)
"All righty. So we have Bitcoin topping out so far at $35 ,000. That is nice to see the bulls coming into play. Now guys, we've been waiting for this. We've been waiting for Bitcoin to finally break through the very important year, the very important high in 2023, which was the 32K level. We tested it many times, but finally in Q4 of 2023, we have broken it. Now it's about, you know, is the pump over? How far are we going? Alcoins starting to ride up. And remember this guys, we spoke about the quietness. I never want you guys to ever lose interest in the quietness again. Look at this preparation. We spoke about October. We spoke about this sideways here was preparing for the move either to the downside or the upside. And luckily we got the move to the upside. And now you can see how fast we start to accelerate. Plus it has been a quite a good week for all crypto in general. We've had Bitcoin pump, but guys, we're getting some massive moves within some Alcoins. Now guys, the fact that dominance is going up and we still getting these moves with Alcoins just shows you if we get a reversal in dominance and we get a Bitcoin to continue up, how massive our Alcoin pump can come at any moment. So what it comes down to is timing. It comes down to breaking of major trends. I'm going to help you today with that. I'm going to show you what trades I'm still currently in and what trades I think are available. Plus I'm going to teach you this market goes football. Now I'm going to teach you two strategies on how to make a lot of money. Plus take profits, plus not predict the markets and just run with it. It's our time to shine guys. I see everyone's happy in the comments. We're all happy. Let's have a fantastic show. No more wasting time. Let's go. We're back, we're back, we're back. What's happening guys? Smash the subscribe button if you're brand new to the channel, smash the like button if you enjoy the content. Now guys, if you believe it's bull markets, smash the like button. Okay. If you are ready to make money, smash the like button. If you are confident that crypto is going to take over, smash the like button. Guys, we got to bring up the vibes. We've got to have fun. We have survived two years. Not to say everything goes crazy now. I do have a feeling that we are getting quite bullish and I'll make sure we stay calm, but we got to celebrate and understand that this market does offer us money. It first sucks and gets all the tourists out of the market, but then it does give money to those who were patient, those who survived and those who stayed in the game. And that's what I spoke to you guys about. Just don't go to zero. That was the big, very important part. You know, preserve your capital in the bear market, but make sure you got something for when times like this start to come because you can make it back so fast. I want to bring back the positivity. I want to bring back the market bull vibes. Okay. Well, as long as this lasts, we know it's coming at any single moment. And I just want you to know that all the hard work you put in is going to pay off, but now it's time to stay focused. And it's time to understand that in order to succeed in a bull leg or bull market, we do have to take profits at times. And what that basically means is you need to prep yourself mentally for that. So the way I do it is very simple. I take two portfolios. One is a trading portfolio, which must take profits. Every time if I took a chart on a four -hour and my four -hour stock price at the top, I start banking profits there. But then what I have, guys, is my long -term portfolio in the background. And this one is there to hold for the bull market. And therefore, if I take profits on my trading account, I'm not scared because the worst thing that happens is I take profits and the market pumps and my long -term is still in. So you want to give yourself leeway. That's why it was so important to sort your long -term portfolio out because that one you're going to need. That one you want to sit back and make money. And then you have the smaller accounts where you are trading the market. Now, guys, why is it important to have a smaller trading account that you are trading? It's because you're not going to get the perfect entry on all coins for the long run. You're not. If you look at Injective right now, it's pumped 50%. That's not a good investment to buy it right now. It doesn't mean you can't trade it. It just means it's not good to buy long -term and hold. But you can trade it on break or flags. You can trade it for 10 % moves. You can make money with it. So just make sure you separate the both and you use these two and use everything that you've learned. Super important. And guys, last thing before I jump in here, I need you guys to prepare yourself. I need you guys educated. That was the biggest thing that happened in the last bull market. We never had a lot of people educated and Sniper School wasn't there yet. So go below and register for Sniper School. Join me in Sniper School. Let me prepare you for this. Let me help you with everything that I learned. Crypto changed my life and it can change yours too. And I started when Bitcoin was at $4 ,000. It was first 10 ,000, then 4 ,000. And I was privileged to ride it up to the areas of 60K. And you never know where things may go now. Many altcoins that are 90 % down, they might ride back a couple of hundred percent. And that's what's crazy. If a coin is down 90%, even if it just goes to halfway, it's 400 % up from here. So in the chat right now, guys, I don't know if we can pop a poll.
A highlight from Tom Emmer Pro-Crypto Vote Tomorrow! | DO THIS NOW!
"All right, so the speaker battle is heating up right now, and what looks and appears as though maybe Tom Emmer is going to be at the front of the pile. We'll see how all this plays out because we're going to get a vote tomorrow. We'll break that down, but give you guys some insights why this could be good for crypto. My name is Paul Baron. Welcome back into Tech Path. I want to get us started today, but I do want to thank our sponsor, and that is Tangem. If you're looking at going into self -custody, this is, I think, one of the best platforms out there for self -custody. It's a card platform that you can use. If you go over to their website, you can go into the simple do -it -yourself card, which is going to auto -generate your seed phrase, or you can get into a version that's going to give you a seed phrase option. So you've got both options. Make sure and get the three -pack. Use our code down below. It's going to give you an additional 10 % discount. So that does help the channel out. All right, let's get into a couple of things here today. I've got a few clips here to play out. To give you one, a recap of where the speaker is and why this is such an important role, especially for crypto. Let's play this first clip. Two would -be candidates, Majority Leader Steve Scalise and Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan, ended up withdrawing their names after not having the votes they needed. The standstill preventing Congress from taking any action on crucial issues. Nine candidates filed to run by Sunday's deadline. The highest ranking among them, GOP whip Tom Emmer, has already earned the endorsement of his former boss. This is not a time for a learning experience as speaker. Tom would be able to walk into the job and do it. A secret vote with the GOP conference is scheduled for Tuesday. Congressman Mike Flood is encouraging Republicans to sign a unity pledge, promising to support whomever wins that vote. He can only afford to lose support from four of his Republican colleagues. In a letter Saturday promising to always be honest and direct and never make a promise he can't fulfill, Schultz says Emmer represents a compromise candidate for a divided Republican party, adding that Emmer appears to have plenty of support and respect among Republicans. All right, so, I mean, it looks rosy for Emmer, however, there is and most likely going to be some pushback. This most likely will come from the MAGA side of what's happening in the House. I want to go to this next clip on what happens tomorrow in terms of the vote. Listen in. I think we will know probably by one o 'clock tomorrow who that speaker nominee is and how close they are. Will they be able to start legislating again quickly or is there going to be too much back and forth? I think that right now we're in a situation where if a speaker does not come out of this around here, I think it increases the pressure to come with some kind of an agreement about a temporary speaker. There is a lot that the House needs to get underway. And of course, getting a speaker in line is very, very critical. Here was a clip on Ken Buck, kind of because he was one of the first to actually flip on Jordan and be pro Emmer, listen to what he had to say. He did not vote for Congressman Jim Jordan, instead voting for Tom Emmer. Well, I guess my first question is, do you really want Tom Emmer to be speaker? No, I don't. I don't like Tom Emmer. I figured this would be the worst job in America. This is a terrible job. So just to underscore that you voted for somebody because you don't like them. I voted for somebody because I wasn't going to vote for Jim. But but you. All right. So you can kind of see the quandary that the House is in. They don't want something so far right. But at the same time, they're not necessarily, you know, positive on what Emmer's stance is, because remember, Emmer is a very pro digital assets lawmaker. And I think his position right now will start to really press the House in terms of things going forward. Politico had an article right here. Trump's tells allies he didn't support Emmer's speaker bid. So this is already starting a little bit of a kerfuffle with not only within the House itself, but also some key components of we'll call it the MAGA machine. I want to go to this next clip that is kind of interesting. This is Steve Bannon talking about Speaker Emmer. Listen in. Remember, Tom Emmer's the biggest of all the never Trump congressmen out there. He's a guy who hates Trump, a super bad guy. If you take out Emmer, you look at the other eight. Hey, there's some good people there. The first thing to do is to stop Emmer today. Once Emmer stopped. Just want to repeat this. You have decapitated decapitated you. This audience did that. Nobody else did that. You did this. So interesting stuff there from Bannon. Again, you know, obviously a very pro MAGA position here again was Roger Stone. If Republicans are going to select Tom Emmer for speaker, why not just reinstall Nancy Pelosi? They're saying, I think that this is the problem that we face right now in the House is that there's so much of this political infighting right now. We can't get these things done and it represents an opportunity for us to get when I say us meaning the American people get a pro digital assets lawmaker in a position of power. Not that the majority of whip is not a position of power, but the speaker of the house is a position of the power and could help really move things through from a regulatory standpoint. I want to jump over to this next clip and this goes into why MAGA is not in line with what Emmer is all about. Listen to that. Is he too moderate? And I put that in quotes. Is he too moderate for House Republicans to unite behind? Absolutely not too moderate. They are all extremely hard, right? Tom Emmer would be the natural pick in a moment where everything has collapsed and you just reach for a consensus candidate. The problem is, Katie, he is one of the members that voted to certify the 2020 election. And so Donald Trump is suspicious of him. It only takes a handful of people who say, OK, Mr. Trump, I'll oppose Emmer. I agree. Emmer is probably the front runner, but Emmer get 217 votes on the floor, not if Donald Trump says don't do it. That is going to be the question here, because if he doesn't win over some of the Republicans and there's only a handful that he has to be able to do this with, then he's going to lose out. But I think we as the American people will lose out just equally as well. Here's why, though, it's so important to the crypto community of why Emmer should be the speaker listening. Crypto saying this whole industry is a fraud, is a scam. It offers no value. It's all play money, et cetera. And then you get to the very end, say the future of our finance in this country is going to be Fed now and the CBDC. Right. Wait a second Fed now. Oh, yippee. I think Fed now will probably work about as well as the post office. All right. You will not have real time clearing. And if you do, you got to worry about everybody who's watching that transaction and scraping data out of that transaction on behalf of your government. The Republican Party has always had its issues with a party purity, right, constitutional purity. And I'm better than you and I'm more in the religious right that factors into it. So we have all these, if you will, melting pot of these different political persuasions. But you've got some good Democrats. I'm going to tell you right now, by the way, their political persuasion probably leans even farther left than I would care to acknowledge. But it's not about their political leanings, just like it's not about Tom Emmer's political leanings. This is an area of finance that literally defines our freedom. I got news for you. That's not a Republican or Democrat thing. That's an American thing. And whether it's Richie Torres, whether it's Darren Soto, who I do a bunch of different bills with, whether it's Ro Khanna, I think you've got to be a little patient with them and I'm not here to to defend them. But I think you've got to be a little patient with them because maybe they are measuring their words because they happen to be under a Democrat administration that they disagree with. Quite frankly, this is what frustrates me with Elizabeth Warren. Elizabeth Warren, if she truly believed in the American value of self -determination, if she truly believed in individuals right to make their own decisions, would she claims she would champion crypto? It's very clear to me that she's nothing more than a big central bank power hungry leader who sees her power essentially being diluted and taken away by this decentralization of our financial system and our financial transactions. And she's desperately, along with the establishment, the institution, she is desperately clinging to hold on to that central banking thing, because that's where their power is. This is a good example of some of the things that are happening right now in our traditional banking system. And these are the things that decentralized assets, especially around digital assets, could solve. And one of those, of course, right here from The Daily Hodl, JP Morgan, of course, coming in now, being sued allegedly for terminating accounts, failing to return about 1 .1 million. So this was purchased through CDs to a couple, individually purchased some CDs at a branch, at a Chase branch. The bank basically closed their accounts and the bank said it mailed out checks to them, but they never got them. And then it all went into, well, give us the check numbers and they couldn't provide those because they never got the check. It ended up having to result in a lawsuit to be able to just get those assets back. These are the kind of things that are happening in traditional finance. And this is just one of many things that are going on out there within TradFi. And I think that's the point that Emmer was making with Elizabeth Warren. But more importantly is that we need to get to a point of decentralized assets as an option that isn't being pushed down by overreach by the SEC, etc. Even Trump, ironically, has an Ethereum stash and it's growing or continuing to grow whether he wants it to or not. The idea of him doing NFT drops and his concept around what he's doing on his collectibles is kind of unique in the sense that he might be against a speaker that's actually pro digital assets, which would be beneficial for him. All right. So whoever does win the speakership, the issue is going to be going through these eight Republicans. So if you if you recognize one of these people and I'll put the names down here in a second is now go out there with StandWithCrypto, I'll show you the website in a second. You can get more information on each one of these. But the list is right here. Let's going to zoom in on it. You got Andy Biggs of Arizona, Ken Buck, Colorado, Burchetta of Tennessee, Eli Crane, Arizona, Matt Gaetz, of course, Florida, Bob Good, Virginia, Nancy Mace, South Carolina, and then Matt Rosendale of Montana. So what I would do is just go right over to StandWithCrypto. You can go over and actually search out each individual person. It will give you the ability to call your congressman right there. You can get started. It's going to give you a little script and it's going to give you ability to actually stand up for what's happening in crypto right now. We are close, maybe the closest ever to getting a pro legislator in a position of power to be able to get some of this stuff through and really change, I think, the future of innovation around all of this. Now, not everything is great right now in terms of the House. And we're going to have a lot of situations, especially hearings, coming along this week. This is one of the things that is going to be happening is going to be a hearing examining the SEC's agenda, unintended consequences for the U .S. capital markets and investors. So that's one. Let me kind of zoom in on that for you guys. This one right here is happening on October 24th. Then we also have this hearing right here, which is the Modernizing Financial Services Through Innovation and Competition, another pro independent finance. And this will happen on the 25th as well or the day after. Then we have two hearings that are extremely negative to crypto. This one right here, which is the hearing entitled How America and its allies can stop Hamas, Hezbollah from invading sanctions and financial terror. You know that crypto is going to come up on that. I hope that we get a lot of the on -chain data analysis that has been put out there to show that they've been wrong in accusing crypto of contributing to that. And the last one that you have to watch for this week also is moving the money, understanding Iranians' regime access to money around the world. This is going to go back into the scenario of how are they getting cash. You know crypto is going to be coming up in that as well. So there's some very key hearings that most likely are going to have bills attached to this that are critical to the future of how this market is going to be flowing out there. So just be aware this is a big week in D .C. With a speaker, a couple of hearings on both the good side and the bad side of crypto. And I think after this week, we're going to know a lot more going forward, especially around legislation. Here's our S &P. This is on the four hour. So you can kind of see that clip right there on Thursday, the 27th. And then we've seen that bit of a downturn. You look at gold also, which has been on the rise, but has started to stabilize right here around the 1900, 1950 range, which is interesting because with Bitcoin continuing to fly right now, the question mark is, is this the top? We're going to be doing a video on that, so be on the lookout for that. Of course, if you guys are not in the diamond circle, make sure and get in now. It's one of the best places to get additional content from us. We do additional podcasts over there, some TA videos I think you will like. We just did one on Solana, also on APE and Render, all of which have been moving a little bit over the last few days. So check that one out. Just go to our substack, pbn3 .substack. You can find out all that good stuff over there. And of course, if you're not following me on X, make sure and do that. It's just at Paul Baron. We'll catch you next time right here on Tech Buy.

The troopers told the man that no, throwing money out the window on I 5 is not a good idea. And if the story ended here, we might all get a smile out of the guy giving away his riches. The problem, it wasn't his money. The man took the money from a shared banking account with other family members who told KE ZI TV, they are now penniless. Because it's shared, they both have equal interests in the money.
