P. Dan Patrick dot com Twitter handle at D. P. feel part of the Fox Sports radio lineup and you can watch this program on YouTube dot com slash the Dan Patrick show we've been talking a lot of basketball there is no basketball but we've been talking a lot of basketball and most of the basketball we've been talking about is over twenty years old because we're still talking about Michael Jordan Horace grant former Chicago bull he is going down swing in here he was talking about a variety of things when he was on ESPN one thousand the other day talked about his lack of relationship with Michael Jordan he went to on a show bet online and had this to say about the famous story that Michael Jordan said to the flight attendant on the the charter do not let Horace have food he didn't play well enough to get food after game here is Horace grant talking about that incident the nuclear thought more about this food thing that he tried to take my food I would be dead guys he can say to you it is all you want to yeah he should be that's okay go ahead you know almost what I have to say but you come back and try to take my foot I will I will will do that it would be no issue right now yes it would be fixed soon okay D. that I believe it why do I believe the story and I believe Horace would have gone back there in challenge Michael Jordan I believe that he also talked about this is Horace grant he won three titles with Michael before going to Orlando he talked about the way Scotty Pippin was portrayed in the documentary it was very could it be treats god being the number two on that team how he came out against Utah could barely walk certain screens get knocked on the floor the whole nine yards and for them that documented to call him well M. J. calls himself these SMB yes it once was god and it will be no six championship I'm telling you right now guys that's Horace grant now much was made of Michael Jordan saying that Horace grant was the snitch for the Sam Smith book the Jordan rules we reached out to Sam Smith yesterday and we wanted some clarification whether it was on the record or off the record whatever he was comfortable about what role did Horace grant play in the Jordan rules was he the snitch and you know pretty emailed him and said look we'll have we'll keep it off the record or you can put it on the record whatever you want to say and Sam Smith sent an email that says the following let me put it this way I've got a degree in business and work for a Big Eight accounting firm as a staff auditor then I got a masters in journalism was an investigative reporter in Indiana and won national awards city officials were charged as a result went to Washington doing investigative work in covering Congress and the White House then worked on the staff of a U. S. senator as his press secretary left DC in nineteen seventy nine help covered the nineteen eighty presidential campaign and national stories for the Chicago Tribune had written freelance sports in DC then switch to sports at the Tribune in the early eighties was writing about the bulls in the NBA from the time Jordan arrived but then a relatively unsophisticated twenty two year old from rural Georgia who basically never was out of the state comes to Chicago in nineteen eighty seven so now I finally am able to write a one three thousand word book that includes dozens of on the record interviews with principals and substantial details from before Horace grant arrived in Chicago because Horace grant is pointing me in the right direction question mark so that your story Sam Smith basically saying look at what I've done and and plus you know he was interviewing a lot of people for this book and I had not heard that Horace grant was the snitch if you want to call him a snitch you know used to be you were a source my calls him a snitch I I was told that there were other people in the organization who were better sources here I don't know what will Horace grant's role was but Sam Smith is basically saying everything I've accomplished in my career I'm going to Penn my book one hundred thousand words on Horace grant who was a twenty two year old how much access what he had to Michael Jordan what would he be able to tell me now Horace grant is friends with Sam Smith and I think to this day still friends but just because you're twenty two years of age from rural Georgia and you're considered unsophisticated doesn't mean you can't be a source on this it just Mike is calling him a snitch and that's different you know my didn't call anybody else who was talking to Sam Smith I don't think and I'm gonna guess that if you had an unnamed source Horace grant would have been the only unnamed source but you know once Michael gets it in his head that he's mad at you or there's a grudge it's not leaving I mean you throw away a friendship with Charles Barkley it's over because Charles had the audacity to critique him as an owner while giving Michael actual pertinent information from Charles perspective of you got yes men around you you need to have somebody who tells you know or they disagree with you that's it I mean Charles is sick Charles doesn't have a mean bone in his body but Michael hears it and says Hey who are you to be criticizing me publicly well Charles was asked about it and he is an analyst and he gave an honest opinion there that should have kept it in house as he said it to Michael privately I don't know that but that relationship is gone the Isaiah Thomas situation that relationship is gone Scotty Pippen that relationship feels like it's a little fragile right now Jerry Krause the late Jerry Krause that relationship was never relationship if Michael didn't like you didn't respect you there was going to be hard for you to get back into his good graces I don't know what else is in play with Horace grant and Michael Jordan but it feels like there's a lot of venom there lot of them plus we've been talking about the greatness of Michael Jordan and rightfully so I understand it we tend to look at Michael and say the great elixir is when you win titles it doesn't matter what you do prior to winning the title as long as you win the title doesn't matter how you act how you treat people who you are does it matter the results very everything and that's what's happened we look back and go oh my god that's how we that's how he was as a teammate yeah Hey if they won they won six titles we would rather have that where you have this single mindedness that I have to win championships any up so what if I'm a bad guy you're not a good teammate or whatever you know I hold grudges I think we don't care and you won all right we don't allow every athlete to have that latitude but with Michael we do because there's a true fascination Paul Pierce former Boston Celtics creek he he's involved in this situation a little bit on the periphery because Paul Pierce was asked about who are his top five players all time still Russian built up the organization a Boston should give way more credit do we give a lot of times you just left of the conversation so is there that Kareem because the main rain bad short term okay bird these guys are all top senior players either help build up their organization or contingencies and all that the one thing that has ever from the pole and put together a team in Miami okay now Paul could have his opinions but he has to admit that he doesn't like lebron he has to admit that you may not want to put him in your top five that's fine you want to put Colby in there're shack in their cream like that's fine just if you're gonna say Hey Karim is in there Karim didn't build up the Laker organization Paul go back to Jerry west Elgin Baylor wilt chamberlain they help build up the franchise so lets you already are flawed with that and you forget lebron took a Cleveland team to the finals when he was twenty two years of age they had nobody on the roster and Cleveland has no history of ever winning in basketball that's when you build up a franchise and yes he didn't go to Miami to join Chris bosh and Dwyane Wade to counter your big three because you've got Kevin Garnett and you've got ray Allen okay he did exactly what the Celtics were able to do they built a team they brought in Kevin Garnett they brought in ray Allen lebron join Dwayne Wade enjoying Chris bosh that cancels each other out there here's Kendrick Perkins ESPN NBA analyst talking about Paul Pierce lebron James in their relationship lebron James and Paul Pierce hate each other they don't speak to each other even now the gate I don't know if you remember okay so we was the one who strains in Houston against the Lakers the mobile brought wild violets and and and save some money before his pregame sat he did not speak the Podesta bag stores so I think all this is is kind of more personal goals abroad did just that because it is no way in here that you've decided to Brian James is not top up you might not have a measure of gold but to say that he's not top Bob this is crazy hello all that's that's kind of I think is more personal to anything yes yeah this is Rick Rickerson Paul may not like lebron because lebron closed out the Celtics with a forty five fifteen and five performance that would make me not like somebody but everybody can have their opinions on their top five or top ten but when I think your opinion is flawed is when I'll call you well if you love bill Russell great make bill Russell the goat.

"We can only hope. Okay yeah I mean of course like when we think about all the companies that are out there building under things. They're partying along moving forward with. Were there with the different use cases. Justin built out. Only time will tell think something like facebook been really beneficial in bringing in in digital assets to the forefront of regulatory thinking that could prove to be very beneficial or very negative. How they decide to really moved moved to super hard approach or soft touch? We shall see but I think there's a big difference though in what facebook's trying to do and what bitcoin is doing. Yeah there's definitely is definitely a huge. What the goals and ambitions of the Like who does Congress call in on Bitcoin side. Like what are they going to do when they want to talk to the Zuckerberg Bitcoin Toshi. You probably bring in different light trade groups or entities. That were safe there. There are companies that are built around Bitcoin with block stream. I and joint base as probably is another one on those folks. That's the point because as we are talking to those people and they are asking questions about West Point is or the potential state of points. Oh that's asynchronous. Bitcoin and having folks in power no uh-huh at all different stuff going on giving them. The opportunity. To ask questions is is is is a big step forward for space it kind kinda came out of Cypher. Hong Libertarian world. The question originally asked was is there still energies of some vibrancy. And I would say absolutely just given how much it's in the it's captured the public's attention and the attention folks who along of the industry itself I think that's a huge. That's a great point and very well said I appreciate that style of explanation to WHO and I and I really liked the way that you put that out there Among many these I know our time's running shorter. So I'll I'll try to make these next couple questions relatively quick but you know I love of like what the block says about themselves as in your mission statement so we are the first and final world word in digital assets. I mean that's a really powerful statement is low. Bold do It's it's it's kind of minimizing others. I think in some ways but really enhancing yours and not intentionally hurting feelings. But I don't disagree with that statement. I think that you guys have brought about a level of of Stability News. That are that's expected on the outside and necessary for new money new blood and new interest to show up right so you want going forward as the block you know also evolved into the space. Where do you where do you see the block over the next year to two years so when we talk about? And why don't you show you'll need to have a TV show. I know you've got a podcast. Sorry we have a great podcast. Don't say that just scoop. Yeah Yeah you should definitely listen definitely check it out so highly recommended. Try to bring on outside voices not like people like Marty Chavez Chavis was CFO Goldman Sachs. Who isn't ness- Lilia required? Doozy Est.. But who is a smart guy who has decades of experience experience in Creating Wall Street who can share insights that that are in court to those in the decline Jason. So that's what the scoops also. Hopefully yes we continue to build that out have more listeners Cheddar TV right so we need well on Arthur's enough money to be made in television not yet people keep telling us that we do need to do more video. I think we will continue to be driven by this. North North Star of only power. Count being tough on the industry and holding ourselves swing firmly high standard of precision. Almost to a point of psychosis. We really are are tough ourselves. That's that's one aspect of being. I is another aspect of it and in the final word aspect is earn porn as well. So we break the the new story or the On whatever development then we tell our ears whether it's our genesis subscribers in longer form detail research will dig into data what the final story is. What should you take away from this? Oh sure give you a perfect example. Actually we didn't break the story of the first Plans we've got that story out. We they were first the news and then a few days later. I wrote up a thousand hallmark. AIDS can tell us it offered sort of at the end. What was it? y'All who broke the Justin son interest potential. Yeah we worked at certain. That's cool man. Hey look throw a dog a bone next time you you have some information like that. Just let me be second. Okay with that definitely. Obviously I am very proud of that in what you guys have done is. It's been exceptional. I continue to you know as I learn more and and being able to read more about you guys have been nothing but enthusiastic about where where your news agency is going and it's necessary. I'm so proud to be able to see this for for for future. People get crypto. You know this is the first place people need to be sent to. I agree cheers. Yes okay so let's let's move in wind it down here And I do a quickfire with my guests at the end and they're a little off topic you know but as you see a little bit we do. Frank is right so we'll start off. It's my favorite question. I asked like everybody. I mean. There's no wrong answers to these. They can be yes or nos or that you you can. You can answer the way you want to write if you want to pass pass chief pass but you're allowed to future right you know and it's my right to be frustrated with you so don't pass right. I'm just joking okay I'm not Here first question is aliens and two hundred two thousand years of human existence. Do you believe aliens have ever contacted or been part of planet Earth Human Existence. Yeah I I don't take that would be unreasonable to one of the points I like to make. What was the reason why I asked about? Humans is because I mean the earth is four billion years old. I mean aliens could have flown by Shortt right by Earth's molten ball and whatever you know Nice Nice Orange Ball there you know but now he's got life sustains obviously for many years but So yes right right. I don't think much in reads but I would say it's unreasonable. Think that they that they don't exist but I don't give much thought okay. Fair Fair all right next question. Big Political Party yes or no. Is bitcoin political party. Bitcoin as a political party yes or no. Oh I certainly think I thought thought about this. I I certainly think you could unite Many many diverse groups of people around bitcoin look historically around for money. Yes money honey but even anything about how the Republican Party team to rise in the nineteen eighties. They'll sir coalesced run at new ride. which was heavily ingrained in Evangelical ISM? Most Republicans are not given Jellicoe but is like Core to the Party and I think you could. You could coalesce a wide range of folks around this idea. Big Point in it could be violator political. No movement want to be a huge one. But could you could definitely like win an election off a big one. I mean I agree with Yang where so many people bler are are moving around him tons of people have very little insight or or guarantee about his other policy prescriptions but just because he's into entity so there's millions of people have interested him now that would otherwise wouldn't care. I think so I think yeah and you know. Another thing about Yang to is respect for Yang. I tend to try to be. Libertarian is in principle and I have my own you know fiscally really i. I feel a certain way. Socially certain way but Yang I think isn't going on white number one and number two whether he successful this year not capturing the Democratic nomination. I get absolutely see him being very very relevant for the next eight to ten years in in politics to some degree so I I look forward to seeing what he does and how he matures and how he grows maybe he gets elected to You know the next president who knows but either way I'm paying attention right so But moving onto the next question is this unless you have a statement an oath you okay Next question is this and again you know Want to make clear your this impartial. You get the answer the way you want to answer and I have no qualms with With with those answers but With that with that being said you know bitcoin has has been has been very successful if you when you think about it from the beginning But bitcoin is it going to hit a million dollars for Canada Billion dollars reasonably speaking in Bitcoin. Hit a million dollars on if there are enough the people that want to buyer relative to as possible. I don't think people should expect that to happen. And I know you already said as block as a whole stays away from speculating in price. Talk and this is just a frank question and I can tell you fair fair enough fair enough now and I'd like to ask the million dollar question I mean some people say yes absolutely. Yeah that'd be interesting now why those people are so sure. John McAfee says it's just simple math the also said he's GonNa eat as the dozens of this as long as he did and and then he also said he was going to contract it out to a sex worker in Thailand but actually just had him on recently and I enjoy Loyd conversations quite a bit because they're always entertaining all right. We're immersed I was in the space. I must have been reporting on this space a couple of weeks and I called him. I'll never forget seven. PM officers hunched over in the corner. You're asking John Mack questions about bitcoin. That's awesome yeah really cool. I never ran a story on that area because it wasn't anything there was no there there but it was very intense. Yeah I really do believe this about John. John's idiot John's high level thinker. He likes to get drunk and he I think he probably has done a lot of drugs in his day but but John is relatively smart and I think that he actually you know he says things like going to get a million dollars and if it doesn't that's okay but the tension that it brings the amount of of of marketing that does for him is well worth it. I don't see a day that goes by without someone. referencing the million dollar John McAfee statement. You know okay so a final question and I'll and we'll see we'll cut it off here but biggest influence in the crypto space for you personally uh-huh oh my face and he got more than one. I am saying that I don't want to discount. Take Away your ability to credit others.

"Coin lives well bitcoin has been living and adults as of Coventry rather than in this is old news which would be would be fantastic but that that all right so today we're GonNa talk a little bit about the news though we're going to have a Frank Shapiro where how the real world and how Wall Street and how tech actually views the blockchain of water full of old water bitcoins gory days well you don't really get a lot of trudeau to super rare right right now you know the the other day and the other podcast but I think it's one of my and how he built people own a lot of bitcoin that that changes how many people can actually hold one bitcoin about how he views the space you know he's been covering this for some time I think you know he told me twenty sixteen anyway I'm going to go ahead and bring frank on so we can get it actually from his mouth and his in his you can also contact us on facebook instagram twitter you know we're everywhere you want to be right closer see that's a great Mike Mailed radiohead dates w. it came up with that concept and we were talking about because he was West Coast East U. W. B. that's right so I was like I'd never even heard that before anyways but lieber in the news getting some notes through some of the over the counter trading nasty the and I I check some extent hair salon who said Franklin Market Oh if you're somebody who just needs things to happen one way or the next to an extent obviously after you have some skin in the game and you who are you where are you from how'd you get into crypto well it's just real quick back when dealers absolutely good news for for reporters in Atlanta people actually start paying the overall context route so it's nonsense and noise aren't the easy is a story that will get the collects banana respectful said on on it's from some of the investment banks on different stocks and I do a quick market hit on on that after a couple of months I started shifting into running about Hyphen Z. creating hey I'm after covering a lot of markets and lot of market structure dot covering this bitcoin stuff that was going oh well it was trading designated reporter business editor at the time outside of a one guy who was covering what were your what was your prior I guess you're what was what was your understanding of Bitcoin you cover magic Internet money assure number as I served remember in mid two thousand seventeen picky this is just so embarrassing your I am painful because there are so many like boring traditional architects of facilities on a I want to make my name in finding out you know that's not what fate had stored and ultimately I had heard I had heard about many of the different high frontier broken yet of of these large players in equities markets kind of making oh that they were actually a source rather hobby of where a lot of this retail flow the large market checks for players that I was running about the exchanges doctrines trading firms once by the time even post the bubble popping. I was super intrigued by the station progress in what's been great as it hasn't necessarily been a of loving it I kind of fell in love with the space in the excitement not so much the bitcoin covering blockchain now to about about into Bitcoin for the first time what was that moment exposure to the spaces owning sure you're covering the people in companies in the space I innocence view myself I see the space is very important just on a personal level let alone you know what I when you know you blossom into something that you've been able to help establish the block crypt a pretty it's a pretty short and simple your can imagine how much that would be much it would cost as you put yourself out there you've been bold you've been really credible and that's that's something that's been mature that the bad news or even just mild news is just put aside and they only and over a year ago we saw the desire for real him for why they think bitcoins rap wasn't we saw our maybe that's driving flex but they're selling idea a lot of writing in addition to working with our other writers on their stories I've been trying invoices you for instance absolutely how many of the equity brokers are there's a parallel storing joe where we see the fees actually increase bring those to the other and we've done a lot of different stories up there was a narrative about how on Wall Street in in in their opinion on whether or not that was the case and in marrying the gold and these assets lack volatility take a hedge that's maybe that's all that's why we future running into a coin and it's it's it's it's approaching the stories we right without lens technology or politics but we're really providing insights as opposed really try to cozy up to the people that report on we've we've done a really good on some respects and be respectful about it but I've you know I've it's sort of the entire point dude Patrick McLean who's the CEO and to to certain projects or companies we gotta start you know representing an taking account ability for our it's even more important for the future of Crypto because the people who are typically you don't get into crypto no I mean that's just my experience I mean there might be a certain percentage that that doesn't stick around for for longer because they're either holding or they're trying to get going to go up but for anybody to take the space point Joe and it explains why some of our most our strongest push back really those folks were really ingrained into the space the maximalist so to speak a unit firmly td or The smoker dating at the Bitcoin maximalists on crypto twitter are often the ones who are hitting us the hardest at the end of the day we we kind of have to bunker down and the haters make you famous man yeah I mean this is not a secret on that on that as well but Donald Trump got more coverage was overly Ito exaggerated on the the not not on a again on even candidate already had like trump section for like two days you know about that might've been our kickstarter in the beginning you know we were cutting out stories that were very emperor noise or something but if you look at the totality of our coverage now being I'm trying to be the record COUNCI speak and but in the beginning we were realized that they actually come on a tax directly in so the reach out to their investors fluent or that it's important that people need to do so let's let's kind of move it to like work I think that as the block has matured over the last year year and a half you know you guys have in the beginning was obviously there may be something you can't talk about I completely understand but really wanted to be on the block in the first few months let's say we weren't getting have companies saying hey I want to be on the block here's WanNa tell so we had in a sense a lot free few months we were breaking stories like basis shutting down we were breaking story auto can tell tale and headed it was a few other examples during that early period broken bits and acts had lost its banking relationships mainstream publications like Financial Times Reuters etc we saw had being press releases were companies respect US WanNa talk to us as and sooner uncomfortable speaking on the phone forgiven story and that was in the amount of information that comes in from this source or that or whatever it might be classified you are putting on the line for every store you know that's that's something else that people don't realize about journalists you know thicken in bury amateur but even for me I've had to learn some very difficult and hard lessons about what that's like that's the hardest thing to get right because you know let's say the offer is this close in and you know a and so we've had lessons on that Nine massless a gentleman leading Google joined act which you know in a it was Joe Peterson had joined the company from Google so are on that is right on the same sort of thing yeah so yeah tissue correction whenever old St No of course not you don't want to minimize and Berg Ozaka himself has made a statement I guess I don't know if this came from that it looks like they're doing the job I go back and forth on what I think about what Labor's GonNa be I got positives what are your what's your overall concept conception of what's happening in Congress the moment my question was in my first instinct you way for billions of people to interact or peer to peer with a and her point was you know in the past they've kind of played this way to regulate information being spread so facebook has proven that every time he tries to do something big is trying to avoid the facebook which is already has notion try something new which is which is a reasonable thing another source labor to kind of stick it to the Democrats a market type of situation the Committee of the Senate pretty sure they're both also Democrats whereas in divide shape out of libra what's what's I mean as a as a theory bitcoin you know what it stands for what it is because everybody has a different the opportunity for the world now with that being said as an American as someone who the lifestyle and the economy we do because of how well accepted and how brilliant the US dollar has really Australia but besides those I've never come run into a place that I can raced and there's that the free market does somewhat exist there are some I guess you could say Lieber Internet Money Bitcoin is a lifestyle it's a it's a theory it's a way of as I free thinker this is great for somebody who's in Africa this is great for somebody who's in sub Saharan Africa specifically opinion and not necessarily the the the blocks representation but what are your thoughts I think it's fascinating regulatory risk states those by by doing this clearly the people leaned will be transformative to human society as a germ they often right I mean how do you create the different on ramps for people to even aw are you really help if it's if it's banned in certain Chad weighing in on ramps it not being available in Russian precisely but those are just some mindful thoughts yeah no no I mean that's that's relevant obviously and when you think of the structure leader is is a security some sense doesn't so is the is the libra the cholera the actual digital the token which is managed which is managed by the libra cessation which made for a Tom understand it to other currencies local currencies waiting for it to be relevant for sure obviously it's big news but I've been waiting I've his concern that the folks on Capitol Hill have about Labor is the fact that the Edwin or comfortable if this thing was it was funny I never thought of this being issues the American jobs for some inc the factor not whether this that's that was his goal it's local play but that was actually one of the Jay once I think it was just a you know a classic assuming blockchain spaces now ten years from now we flash forward got a whole brand new space kind of scale right and that's the blockchain you know a to make payments in fact I'm not a proponent of someone who thinks that bitcoin should be the next US dollar that's would Would at least agree to some sort of that but most people are really uneducated it's based off of the the things you witness different markets and the Wall Street's opinion as this becoming without that you know are these are these companies still going to invest in Bitcoin do they see this as a value price they see this as something ground floor the second question would be do we get to the odd percent of the current of workforce of this space is on these tokens the actual projects themselves the companies both speculation comes a smaller source of of Of the job okay and yeah I mean of course like when we think about all the companies that are out there building under official and bringing in digital assets moved to super hard approach or soft touch we a huge and what the goals and ambitions

"What are your? What's your overall con- concept conception of what's happening in Congress the moment comet also I was actually speaking my my really good friend reporter Washington and we were talking about this morning? She and a really good point The question was like my first instinct was arms warning was this is likely not going happen. Like the thing that they're trying to achieve getting hundreds of companies together to always association create a new way for billions of people to interact peer to peer with a a new type of money is is is is something. That's so far long. Why would the regulators even WanNa waste their time frame Aski- in and ask him questions and her point was you know in the past? They've kind of played this way to regulate approach until the things in place. What happens you have Cambridge Analytica doc and you have issues that you know of a misinformation being spread so facebook has proven that every time he tries to do something big kinds of clubs up and so they're trying to get ahead of that and so it seems like you know they're kind of being unreasonable but they're just is trying to avoid the facebook which is already has notion of which already has image rather being too powerful? How do we make sure that people's People's money doesn't get harmed in this process of of them trying to try something new which is which is a reasonable thing another source ores in DC camera? That is shaping up between the Republicans and the Democrats in which the Republicans actually are coming off a little pro Labor to kind of stick it to the Democrats a market type of situation. And you've seen leading Democrats like a maxine waters crap ground. The two other senators who are on the Committee of the Senate pretty sure they're both also Democrats whereas the one letter that was sent from a from the Senate to to sort of any case it was. It was a Republican senator. So you've kind of seen that partisan in divide shape out of Gra. What's what's really interesting about this libra discussion? Just in general to me is that you know again. I have conflicting opinions. I for one. You know. Assad putting aside any bitcoin as a as a theory bitcoin. You know what it stands for what it is because everybody has a different view of that. I know what I personally believe about bitcoin and if we but if I remove what. bitcoin is an F.. I removed the blockchain idea. Libra to me is a very intriguing and exciting the opportunity for the world now with that being said as an American as someone who enjoys the benefits of having the US dollar as world currency. I personally you know Donald Selfish level. I'm like This could be a little bit interesting because you know we enjoy the lifestyle and the economy we do because of how well accepted and how brilliant the US dollar has performed over the course of the world right. It's accepted in just about every major country can't imagine it not being accepted. I've I've traveled the world on every continent besides Artika and I am really Australia. But besides those I've never come run into a place that I can exchange by dollar and I'm very proud and very happy to be an American but now we have this idea that on the Internet. Everybody's the same that. It's a very individualistic spliced. And there's that the free market does somewhat exist. There are some. I guess you could say a some. Obviously the some roles on the internet that everybody in every country you know abides by by their own regulations but the Internet money compared to Bitcoin like this is Lebron Lieber Internet money. BITCOIN is a lifestyle. It's a it's a theory. It's a way of politically embarrassing yourself. Lieber is just a way to to pay and that scares me a little bit because I enjoy the American lifestyle that I do now as I free thinker. This is great for somebody WHO's in Africa. This is great for somebody who's in sub Saharan Africa specifically typically or in in the middle of China. Who needs to be able to do something without the government being involved right What are your what do you see Lieber as as a whole of course? A lot of this'll be opinion opinion and not necessarily the the the box presentation. But what are your thoughts. I think it's fascinating and curious that facebook would do this given Tom How the reputational wristy the regulatory risk states those by by doing the so clearly the people working on the project if they're going to push this ahead to to get the upper echelons of of facebook to get on board with this must be something they believe. Leaned will be transformative to human society as a germ off and tried to put my skeptical glasses on so to speak. I'm I'm will. This change lives a billion people. I don't necessarily know the jury's still out I mean how do you create the different on ramps for people to even Gatley burling an airdrop. which countries will it really be accepted? I mean pretty sure. Early reports beginning said that it won't be available China and India while all. Are you really help. If it's if it's banned in certain jurisdictions physically larger sections of billions of people were a lot of the the world's most impoverished reside on how much Henry Macon on ramps it not being available in in some of the most on some of the places with the most impoverished folks so there are challenges in there are impediments to. I don't know if that gets your Russian action precisely but those are just some mindful thoughts. Yeah no no I mean that's that's relevant obviously and then because of my background covering market structure and to were you the SEC CNBC indifferent creating regulations when you think of the structure whatever is is the security. Some sense doesn't mimic the the structure of mutual fund or new TI. And how does that then regulate that and who regulates it and so is. The is the libra the cholera. I guess The actual digital token itself is this something that can increase in value. Labor is the meanwhile company so it's okay. Okay it's creating infrastructure around Lieber token which is managed which is managed by the libra cessation which has made participation Tishman tastes players and belieber token itself by the question. I'm pretty sure it. Winds a level of stability a understand it to other currencies local currencies maintain a level of stability outside. You know Benazir Hesse. Yeah well I think about this dude like I as I read it and of course. I'm not an expert in libra. I've kind of been waiting for it to be relevant for sure. Obviously it's big news but I've been waiting I've handouts from the moment that it came out that the US was going allow this right especially because they're based in the US now. If facebook was based out of you know Switzerland or somewhere else. You know I would be a lot more days. His concern that the Folks on Capitol Hill have about Labor is the fact that the association manages. The shirt is in Excuse me Straits Switzerland. Yep that's a big concern. It's one of the paramount concerns. Actually win more comfortable. If this thing was it was funny. I never thought of this initiative. She wants senator while I was there for the first hearing news congressman because there was two yearns it. Just don't remember as well while I think it was a southern American jobs for some WANNA great American jobs for this thing. It's interesting that that's your big concern because to me thinking face Giant made up to his Jain Corporation. The factor not whether the in create a whole hundred or so American jobs at least under concerned however you know on those clips when he's trying to get reelected he can be clipped saying that so I would imagine maybe. That's that was his goal. It's local play but that was actually one of the bigger concerns was whether or not that's crazy. I agree that sounds ridiculous. Actually in the south I hate that I would. I gotTA represent underlying ones. I think it was just a classic Komo America first for sure for sure. Okay so let me let me interject this statement. I guess questions sort of but assuming blockchain spaces now ten years from now we flash forward. It's we expect it to improve especially Bitcoin We've got a lot of coins and projects. That are dying buying or already dead. And some that rise out of the ashes like a phoenix. And you gotta you've got a whole brand new space to kind of scale right and that's the blockchain As a as a as a space. Now I see this as we're at ground restored the ground floor. It's the the mass adoption effect is not whether or not people are using bitcoin to make payments in fact. I'm not a proponent of someone who thinks that bitcoin should be the next US dollar. That's not what I always say. I think BITCOIN's a store value and should be viewed as such and treat it as such on a public level. Now now I wish the rest of people that I that I interact with and do crypto Edward Would at least agree to some sort of that but most people are really uneducated on the exact reasons why bitcoin should or could exist for long periods of time. Now that being said here's kind of my statement is moving forward based off of your experience. It's based off of the the things you witness and different markets and the Wall Street's opinion as this becoming more and more something that you expect them to get involved in or is it kind of tapering off now. The hypes types over. It's not as exciting. Never we haven't run back up to the all time high yet and without that you know are these are these companies still going to invest in Bitcoin. Do they see this as a value price. They see this as something I think they should get in. what what are what are a lot of a lot of information suggests there but I think your the promise of your questions for which is were definitely at the ground floor. The second question would be do we get to the second level. Our our first level second level third level of house remains a scene but at the bank implore you can see that and we have Came out today. That forty some odd percent of the current of the workforce of this space is Azzam. is exchanges so chose that while reeling provable. Business Model wise in speculation rights. Speculation on these tokens the actual projects themselves. The companies both really small percentage of the workforce. And you know there is a chance of probability that in ten years time speculation comes a smaller source of of Of the job up for some of the market and the projects and use cases. That are being d'appel have real viability. I mean we can only hope right..

"From the traditional financial world. multi-role all to to frame things in our space that shows that we don't operate in back you. For instance absolutely how many of the equity brokers are. It's not brought their feet down to zero which is an interesting story to trend. That's playing out since online brokers have really come come into existence and there's a parallel storing joe where we see the fees actually increase in so we wrote a story about how that basically examine how while we have eh equity workers wearing their fees zero. The the opposite is playing out crypto and bring those tools and we've done a lot of different stories out. There was a narrative going on about how it was. A is a savings so called safe haven asset during times of the economic turmoil. And we you know went to economists on on Wall Street and in their opinion on whether or not that was the case and in marrying those worlds were offering any perspective. And that's just part of that. That's kind of what was their answer by the way. Well the answer is if you look at what a safe haven asset is something gold and these assets lack volatility. Yeah that's not bitcoin. Bitcoin in the future might be a lawyer. Free now that doesn't necessarily fit all the descriptions at the same time. We talked two so maybe a hedge. That's maybe that's all that's why we future sure but not at the moment. We don't see lows during these The economic uncertainty of these flying or driving into bitcoin. And it's it's it's approaching the stories we right with that Lens. Observe how can we provide a really great context and insights to our readers that you know whether it's looking at it on predominant perspective Wall Street or technology technology or politics but we're really providing insights as opposed to a snappy headlines and also bringing you know power to account right Ah a lot of these publications and news outlets really try cozy up to the people that they report on we. We've done a really good job job of a holding Howard account asking people the tough questions a were not a marketing arm of your company. We are going to give you Helen on some respects and be respectful about it. But but you know I've often asked questions of of projects in companies and say you know no one's ever really asked US brush. Sometimes it gets people angry and sometimes it makes people uncomfortable but sort of the entire white. Dude Patrick McLean. Who's the CEO and co-founder of mouse belt? WHO's the parent company between radio? We were just having this conversation recently. About how I mean even I like I need to be a little bit more bold in the way that I speak to To to to certain projects or companies we gotta start you know representing an taking account ability for our own words in our own things. Not that we've done anything wrong. We just want to be a little bit more sort of in that manner now I think as important as this is for crypto it's even more important for the future of crypto because the people who are typically you don't get into Crypto uh-huh and just get out completely you know if you buy into crypto you're typically your down the rabbit hole and I mean you might just be holding and maybe even at a loss but you tend to stay you. No I mean that's just my experience I mean there might be a certain percentage that that doesn't stick around for for longer than you know a ten percent debt but there's a big percentage that does and with that being said. It's not really them that we're trying to convince anything or them that it's really worried about a lot of news because they're either holding or they're trying to get going to go up but for anybody to take the space seriously that's credible you know from the outside looking in. I mean it's hard. It's hard to look at the media in Crypto and say you're doing a good job so that's a really point Joe and it explains why some are strongest. Push back in terms of some of the stuff we've read about as has come from those who's really extreme might be too negative connotation but those really those folks who are really ingrained into the space the maximalist so to speak and with with certain coverage whereas the outsiders the people who are working out X.. Technology companies blockchain unit or. You know the small crypt a unit firmly. TD or The smoker dating at a firm like Visa or Massacre Day love because they receipts questions whereas the Eat heads the BITCOIN maximalists on Crypto. Twitter are often the ones who are hitting us the hardest. What what's great is it's the it's the former group not the latter that are actually paying US money for our content awesome? Yeah so I mean at the end of the day we we kind of have to bunker down and the haters make you famous man you know. That's the haters. Make you stronger sir. Her I mean look and of course this is not a political statement and whatsoever but I I mean this is not a secret on that on that as well but Donald Trump got more coverage rich from his haters than he did from anybody else during two thousand sixteen. And it's probably going to continue now. That's that's true for both parties and a lot of ways. Trump's was campaign was a little bit. Was Overly Ito exaggerated on the not not on a again on a political statement. I'm not making a statement about that. But more so on how much people were actually tweeting. Bad things about him. It just went everywhere every day. I mean CNN. At one point before he was even a candidate already had like trump section for like two days. You know about just so you click on it and get trump news you know so I use that example to say you know the bad. The bad news oftentimes is what will make you make you really relevant. Yeah I think that might've been our kickstarter in the beginning. You know we were cutting out stories that were very intense high impact ruffled feathers. And we Kinda came on the scene as this maybe new semper noise or something but if you look at the totality of our coverage now being that were here matured I really her earned a lot of credibility and that's how much now small part of our brand are those sorts of stories. We're kind of just I'm trying to be the Record COUNCI speak and but in the beginning we were definitely alone Kinda scrappy. Right sure would attack us on on twitter now reteach interesting phase. I won't name names. But people have realized that they actually tax directly in so they'll reach out to their investors his who might have twitter and then they'll sort of speak out against giving supporting now but dude that means you've made it bro Right like when you have that type of influence fluent or that. It's important that people need to do. So let's let's kind of move into like me it's of course yes. Yes and that's the block as a total oh entity but you have a big part in that as you. Are you know the director of news at this. I think that as the block has matured over the last year year and a half. You know you guys have you've been putting yourself in a position to be something in the space to be taken seriously. What have been some of the bigger news stories would have been some things that you really like that? Stand out in the past but it was great in the beginning was obviously there may be something you can't talk about. I completely understand but whatever. Let's let's get some Easter eggs here just higher level in the beginning what was so great was we didn't have the SORTA no one really wanted to be on the block in the first few months. Let's say well. We weren't getting a strong pipeline of amounts from public relations firms in companies like outside of a small few in gaining of have companies saying. Hey I want to be unemployed. Here's on Intel. So we had in a sense a lot free time right so we have a lot of time to dig into a company's doing really deep investigative reporting her mom and so in those first few months we were breaking stories like basis shutting down. We were breaking stories. Stories like blockchain terminal which was a huge investigation into this. ICO that race thirty million dollars. The founder had changed his name changed identity. Auto can tell tale and headed it was from Alliancebernstien which is a major Wall Street firm but it does a lot of smoke mirrors. It was a really great story. We had a few other examples during that early period. Broken the big connects loss. It's banking relationships. And we are being cited. I mean two three months in. Hey Journal Reuters that that basis story particular we were sourced in the mainstream publications like Financial Times Reuters etc.. We saw had got hurt. We do a lot of that reporting but we you know it went from one hundred percent of what we did to maybe twenty percent. Because now we're getting press releases were companies respect US WANNA talk to us as and so. We've definitely grown up. But in the beginning it was a lot of that on me showing up at bars in midtown. Twelve twelve eight. Am to talk to sources sooner uncomfortable speaking on the phone forgiven story and that was a lot of the early days. Of course I can imagine the amount of of stories you've actually turned down compared to what you've been able to write is just astronomical in the amount of information that comes in from this source or that or whatever it might be classified Safai stories allow you allow shorts come on words but since so that's a lot I mean that's a lot of credibility that you are putting on the line for every store you know. That's that's something else that people don't realize about journalists and I'm not a professional journalist somebody who likes to talk about Crypto in blockchain and I make posts hosts and I have a community that lets me know of all the drama right and that's pretty basic in bury amateur but even for me. I've had to learn some very difficult and hard lessons about what you can what you can't talk about that that responsibilities huge and sourcing now that easy then. Why William Edging we were on deals? That's like that's the hardest thing to get right because you know. Let's say bitcoin radios getting a acquired by the block right. Let's say that were happened in some parallel universe. Question is well how far the discussions what's the offer. Is this close in. And you know a an outlet that doesn't have the sort of the journalistic know how to get that story right likely Budget up and so we've had lessons on on that Nine massless in the story since be blocked up my funniest mess up as embarrassing to happen but it was an honest mistake not to talk about it but I had heard about the gentleman leading. Google joined act which in Kennel intercontinental exchanges. Of course so I heard that this guy fears name but retained it was Joe. Peterson had joined the company from Google. So I report on. That is right. It was good story except I got the long drew Peterson. Oh Louisville's two job. Google actually worked around the same time the same sort of thing yeah so yeah. Tissue Correction Whenever every week issued correction issue. It repaired US dude. At Lisa's name was Joe. Peterse though that's at least understandable it was a very honest mistake but it was sold old st no of course not you don't want to minimize and get rid of any mistakes and that goes for most people. I think who take their jobs very seriously. Well well let's shut until at some hot topics today specifically with libra. I guess Berg alza himself has made a statement. I guess I don't know if this came from go from facebook as a as a whole but that they would not pursue libra if the. US wasn't behind it. If the regulator said no is that a lot of that just you know some compliance publicly so that it looks like they're doing the job I go back and forth on what I think about what Labor's GonNa be I got positives and negatives and I think that could be very powerful in the government knows that but you know you're we're getting probably a you know as as a whole block is probably receiving a lot of information on this..

"Bitcoin has been living and adults as of today as I watched a or I guess last night as we tumbled under eight K. and We kept going all the way down to like seventy two hundred. I think for stopped. Hopefully by the time he listened to this recovery Coventry rather than in. This is old news which would be would be fantastic but That is our relative right. It's always relative to when you got in price you got an but I know this. bitcoin is still worth a bitcoin. So that's the great aspect of all of this all right so today. We're GONNA talk a little bit about the news. Though we're going to have a Frank Shapiro on. He is the director of News at the block. And we'll talk about them here momentarily when we bring Franken but I think it's a really relevant conversation that we have where where how the real world and how Wall Street and how tech actually views the blockchain right You know one of the major reasons why bitcoin comes up is because what new people come in and bitcoins rare but when you just have a stagnant pool of water full of old water from bitcoin glory days well. You don't really get a lot of of excitement from the outside but when you have new blood new people new money flowing in obviously that changes the game a little bit and that brings the rarity of Bitcoin to one step closer trudeau to super rare. Right right now you know the the other day in the podcast but I think it's one of my favorite things I've ever I've ever said is only only twenty. One million people can ever owned one bitcoin ever right and we already know that. That's not even possible because how many people own a little bit of Bitcoin and how he built people own a lot of bitcoin that that changes how many people can actually hold them bitcoin. Now's right as we know it always sellers. That may not be the case always anyways but you know labor is in the news right. Now we're gonNA chat about that. Also want to get a little insight from frank here shortly about how he views the space you know. He's been covering this for some time. I think you know he told me. Twenty sixteen is when is when he really started covering the space at a high level. And he's really credible in an awesome Ma journalists you know and you can check out their website. I think it's called the block CRYPTO DOT com. But we'll get specific on that second anyways I'm going to go ahead and bring frank on so we can get it actually from his mouth in his in his words but Everybody make sure that you know if you're if you're watching if you have some some questions or if you Do you want to you know get comment about the show cinemas joe at BITCOIN RADIO DOT com. You can also contact us on facebook instagram twitter. You know we're everywhere you want to be right and Youtube. Of course all right so without further ado you know what time it is bringing on. Welcome oh come frank. What's going on man has gone? Thanks for having me I load it. Measure Z. That's a great mayes male radiohead dates W. WF UV BTC. Exactly man. I gotTA give Some some credit over to the team Josh Donaldson who's executive producer of the show. He actually she came up with that concept and we were talking about because he was west coast and I'm east coast. I guess you could say in the south on the West Coast. It's actually called like Hugh. Yeah it is. It was really weird. He was like I'm like what. Why would he co Q.? Is W. W. B.. That's right so I was like I'd never even heard that before anyways but But back to you frank. How's it going man can't complain it's been A? It's been a fun day mostly. I haven't really written anything today in Phoenix but obviously with Lebron Lieber in the news getting some notes through some of the over the counter trading desk on on why they think were down eight some odd percent. I actually. It's fine. I was supposed to go with one over the counter trading desk head tonight and I I said hair salon and said Franklin market. Oh Mel into busy day. You're blocking so chat about what we're doing. All it says here in the news business you know they always say any news is really good news because you're impartial to it. You're you're if you're somebody who just needs things to happen one way or the next to an extent obviously after you have some skin in the game and you want Bitcoin to be successful clearly. You're the company that you're you're with the block. Walk of relies on Crypto being relevant to some extent. But let's get some background on you first. Frank like who are you where are you from. How'd you get into Crypto? Well it's just real quick back when it was in radio. We always try to avoid the when it bleeds. It leads Sir typically in news. You know it's it's not just as any news. Good news but bad news in particular dealers absolutely good news for reporters in an. It's when people actually start paying attention and start clicking read stories but we try to avoid EVATT here on the block of of cover you well know inasmuch as you would like to put context route so it's nonsense and noise aren't recovering price all day. Every day we're covering the builders in the movers and the shakers who are doing things that are impacting the space just not hunting for the easy easy story that will get collects banana respectful said on from my perspective. where I come from now gone to Cryptos kind of by accident I was at this business? Insider most of my day was spent getting research notes from some of the investment banks on different stocks. And I do a quick market. Hit on what those notes said you know. It would be a thesis on why macy's would outperform whatever quarter or three hundred news story on that. After a couple of months. I started shifting into running about Hyphen Z.. Crazy exchanges market structure my background. Before that I was at Nasdaq in marketing so I knew about the trading worlds and from that perspective and one day after covering a lot of markets and lot of market structure. I was sort of having a monthly or maybe it was a bimonthly meeting. I entered Ernie centre-right you've been covering a lot of market structures intact. How do you feel dot covering this? bitcoin stuff that was going I well. It was trading up above a thousand first time in a while and kind of Garner a lot of attention and a lot of traffic in there wasn't a designated reporter business editor at the time outside of one guy who was covering in just literally the price at least in the US. They didn't even so much as asked me to say you're going to have to now cover this and so it was so. Let me pause what were your. What was your prior? I guess you're what was. What was your understanding of Bitcoin? Did you even take it seriously at that moment. Well no actually not so I remember my immediate reaction was I am starting out my career as a financial journalist. I don't want to cover medic imminent money all day. Assure number as I served gone Mike Coverage of provisional markets to Bitcoin. What from let's say ninety percent ten percent to almost all the way round within a few months and I remember remember in mid two thousand seventeen? Picky this is just so embarrassing. Your belt point stuff yeah. Do you probably like embarrassed. Like what what. WH- What are you making me about. This is it was funded painful because there are so many like boring traditional Facilities on right about of course are shaping up their ratings river sort was lunching listings business issues. But that's where I WANNA make my name in finding out you know that's not what fate hence stored and ultimately I kind of saw two worlds coalescing around late twenty awesome Tina's we all know TV was doing future seems futures. I had heard I hadn't of the different hyphen to trading firms. who had been in the space for awhile from for two and extra trading in Chicago and and most stories really intro class of of these large players in equities markets? Kind of making a big splash into crypto. I broke that Jane Streep for instance trigger Tejas Yup equities birthday were trading the market. And now I know that there are actually a source rather hobby of where a lot of this retail flow Ends up going to where they internalize it but anyway long story short to lay is started off not being interested in it and then when I saw that all the the large market trucks for players that I was running about the exchanges the trading firms once I saw them like building you know radical groups joy so so to speak in a business around this this thing it really catch my attention by the time even post the bubble popping. I was super intrigued by looking at how bitcoin would be import to the exchanges the trading firms in watching that narrative of institutionalization the station progress in what's been great as it hasn't necessarily been a straight line of Marawani in adoptions but a lot of different different complicated stories ending out. It's been fun to watch but definitely didn't star of loving it. I kind of fell in love with the space in the excitement not so much the bitcoin itself but I sure anything else no. It's a great. It's a great Storyline Okay so let me ask you. How long did it take you from that moment of your covering covering blockchain now to about about into bitcoin for the first time? What was that that moment like? How long was that so actually? I only bought the coin so that story about how to use a bitcoin. And I've sort of you. My career exposure to the spaces. Owning sure in the block is the block by by by that in that regard by dedicating my life in career up to this point early years to writing covering people in companies in the space. I I in a sense view myself as owning a great deal of Bitcoin without actually owning that much fair enough. Now I like that answer Karen. I can relate to that a lot of ways as a community leader of my own are myself I see. The space is very important just on a personal level let alone you know what I you professionally but I think it's a really intriguing and really exciting way of being introduced madam and you come in here. You're like a little disappointed at like this new. Be even put on in annexing. When you know you blossom into something that you've been able to help establish the block crypt what size? The block crypto. Lock Com. Yeah but it's the block. Is the block euros taken. I can imagine I mean it's a pretty Pretty Short and simple your can imagine how much that would be.
