A highlight from Crypto Wallet How to Transfer Crypto from Exchange (Tangem Wallet 2.0 Review ) New Features!
"We are going to become our own bank, our own security system. We are going to 100 % own and have complete control over our digital assets like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Altcoins, and other cryptocurrencies and NFTs all in less than 90 seconds right now. This is the latest version of Tangent Wallet, a multi -currency, multi -chain cryptocurrency wallet that is the size of a credit card, the most affordable cold storage hardware wallet, and extremely easy to set up and use. Check it out. Opening the box here, we have the three cards with a new sleek matte black design. Next, installing the correct and official Tangent Mobile app on our phones and opening the app, tap Scan Card and touch one of the cards to your phone like so. Next, tap Create Wallet and tap the card to your phone again. Nice. Now that we have a wallet, let's create backups of it. Tap Backup Now and then tap Add a Backup Card and tap the second card to your phone. Cool. Now tap Add a Backup Card again and tap the third card to your phone. Then tap Finalize the Backup Process. And now we need to create an access code to secure the wallets. Tap Continue and then type in whatever word, phrase, numbers, or combination of text you want to use to access your wallet. Re -enter it to verify the access code and then scan the primary card ending in the corresponding numbers on the screen that matches that card, holding you up to your phone until the operation is complete. Then repeat this process for the two backup cards. Sweet! Now your Tangent wallet has been configured and is ready for use. Now we can continue to the wallet, check out the mobile app, learn how to use it safely and securely, and then move some crypto to it. Hello, I'm Crypto Casey and in this video we are going to go over the new features of Tangent's latest wallet and how we can transfer crypto off of exchanges to completely own and control it with this cold storage hardware wallet. Let's hit it! Here is Tangent's original wallet we fully reviewed together on the channel, which you can check out by clicking on the link above. And this is their latest sleek matte black design with some interesting new features. Side by side, both cards are the same shape and size, however the new one is more sturdy with some nice weight to it. Tangent compiled a list of the most requested features by users and implemented them in their new Tangent wallet card. One of the main differences being three different options for private key generation versus only one. So in addition to using the certified true random number generator, TRNG, which generates and stores the keys inside the card's chips, where neither Tangent nor anyone else can see what it is and no copies exist in space and time outside of the Tangent wallet cards. Now with the new wallet cards, we have the option of generating a seed phrase with the Tangent mobile app and importing it to the cards, and also the option of importing an existing seed phrase from another wallet. Cool stuff. So it's important to note that if we create the wallet without the seed phrase option, generating a seed phrase will not be possible later. So we need to carefully consider the pros and cons of each option and decide which one we are most comfortable with long term. Tangent creates a seed phrase through their app on your phone, a hot device connected to the internet, which is not ideal if your phone has malware on it has been compromised or similar. So if we do decide to create a seed phrase for our Tangent wallet, or if we decide to import a seed phrase from an existing wallet, consider disconnecting from any Wi -Fi networks and switching your phone into airplane mode to make sure the process is more secure. Do not take a screenshot of the seed phrase. Instead, write it down on a few pieces of paper to store securely in different locations in case of something like a fire, flood or similar, and then get something more durable than paper immediately for the long term. There are some great offline options for storing the private keys like the crypto steel capsule solo offered by Ledger. This is a solid steel capsule to protect your seed phrase designed to resist extreme conditions. And the BILFODL also is offered by Ledger. BILFODL is a solid steel case to store and protect your seed phrase designed to resist fire, water and more. With cold wallets like Ledger and Trezor devices, the creation of the 12 or 24 word seed phrase is done offline, which is more ideal and secure. However, vulnerabilities and security risks are still present because, as we've discussed in several videos on the channel, if anyone has access to your seed phrase, like if they came across them written on a piece of paper or had access to a Ledger crypto steel capsule or BILFODL with the seed phrase, or if you stored it on a device that can be hacked like your computer, cell phone, or if a scammer tricks you by pretending to be Ledger, Trezor or similar, sending you a fake email or directing you to a fake site and instruct you to give them your seed phrase by lying and saying your funds need to be recovered or something like that, then all the funds on your wallet will be gone. So seed phrases are designed to help us with self custody and to manage our cryptocurrencies and digital assets more easily and restore any lost access to our funds. However, like we just discussed, there are risks. And even if you decided to try and remember it by heart or mix up some of the words, if you unfortunately suffered a brain injury, memory lapse or similar, that's also a risk of completely losing access to your funds. So think about this. Cryptocurrency private keys are generated by elaborate mathematical algorithms where data is encrypted many, many times using a huge amount of computing power. And then the most important key is then just converted into a 12 word seed phrase that can be used by anyone anywhere at any time to steal everything. Right. Important things to consider. So do your own research and never put your eggs or crypto all in one basket or even several of the same types of baskets. Diversification in investments is just as important as diversification of the same type of assets, like spreading cash into several different banks and spreading crypto across different types of wallets. Diversify some digital assets into seed phrase based cold storage hardware wallets like Ledger and Trezor and also diversify some digital assets in different technologically based wallets like BC Vault or Tangent Wallet. With Tangent Wallet, instead of a seed phrase as the only way to backup our cryptocurrency, backup copies of the wallet are created and used on the other Tangent Wallet cards. So let's say we have our Tangent Wallet card and two backup cards. We can store them in different geographical locations in case we need to restore access to our digital assets. And if anyone happens to come across the card or steals the card and even downloads the Tangent Wallet app and tries to access our funds, an additional security layer is necessary, which is where we encrypt our wallets with an access code by creating our unique series of numbers or letters or similar to a PIN code or passphrase. And to protect the wallet from brute force attacks, after each wrong password attempt, an increasing amount of time delay between each attempt is executed. So our crypto remains secure. Amazing. The other new features we will explore apply to both the first and latest versions of the Tangent cards as updates to the Tangent Mobile Wallet app and overall user experience. This includes a new dark mode where we can navigate through the mobile app comfortably in low light environments. So it's easier on the eyes when using it at night or in the dark. It also looks a lot cooler as you can see here on some screenshots. With the new update, we can now sort and group our cryptocurrencies and tokens however we want, whether it be by balance, by blockchain network, like cryptocurrencies on the Ethereum network versus Polygon or similar, or manually in whatever order we prefer to see them. Tangent added an extra layer of protection with an option to hide our balances when the app is open to keep our crypto holdings more discreet without us having to sacrifice convenience if others are close by and can see our phone screen. And they also added an option to turn off access code recovery, which increases security. We can now monitor price changes over the past 24 hours of all of our assets directly in the app to help us make informed decisions during crazy dynamic markets. There is rapid access to buying, selling or hiding a token by tapping and holding it on the home screen. Bitcoin and Ethereum transaction histories also display directly in the app without us having to check third parties like Block Explorer, Etherscan or similar. And Tangent is working on adding more blockchain networks in future updates. Tangent now offers 24x7x365 support so they can answer any questions we may have or guide us on how to properly do crypto transactions with Tangent Wallet no matter what time it is or what time zone we are in, which is huge for beginners just getting in the space. More features are on the horizon like a market data feature directly inside the app, an address book, cross -chain swaps, staking and more support for more blockchains. Brilliant. Now let's transfer some cryptocurrencies off of exchanges to our Tangent Wallet together so we can get more comfortable with the process as well as transfer some back to the exchange to practice for our profit -taking strategy in the next bull run, which you can learn more about in this video guide by clicking on the link above. And after that, we will learn how to connect our Tangent Wallets to Web3 applications like Morales Money, a platform for finding undervalued altcoins before they pump in the next bull cycle. So stay tuned to the very end to learn more about becoming your own bank with complete control and ownership over your digital asset investments simply and easily with Tangent Wallet and a very important free tool we can use when interfacing with Web3 to further protect our funds. Nice. Let's move some Bitcoin we have on our Coinbase account off of the exchange together to hold in our very own cold storage hardware wallet, Tangent Wallet. Open the Tangent app, tap scan card, scan the card, and enter the access code. Scan the card again. And from here on the dashboard, press and hold Bitcoin, then tap copy address. Next, open the Coinbase exchange app, tap the send button, tap Bitcoin, paste the Tangent Bitcoin wallet address into the to field, and tap continue. Enter the amount of Bitcoin we want to send. I always recommend sending a small amount as a test first to make sure everything is good to go. So in this case, we are sending $100 worth of Bitcoin. Tap preview, make sure everything looks good, then tap send now, and it's on its way. In a few minutes or so, when we open our Tangent Wallet app, we will see the $100 worth of Bitcoin that we now completely own and control. Repeat the same process for any other type of cryptocurrency by copying the corresponding address on Tangent Wallet, also making sure we select the right network. Like for example, with Tether, there are many other available networks like Ethereum versus BNB Smart Chain versus Solana and more. And then repeat the same similar process on any other exchange we may have crypto on by using the send function, pasting the address in the recipient field, and checking to make sure everything looks good before sending. The process is actually much easier and simpler than most people think that are new to crypto. And it's a lot like riding a bike. I can try to explain how to ride a bike to you, show you how to ride a bike, and you can read about riding a bike. However, at the end of the day, you need to get on the bike and ride it for yourself to learn. So start practicing transferring to and from different exchanges and wallets to prepare for the next face -melting bull cycle so you can take profits and potentially change your life with some nice gains. And if you want to explore a simple tool any of us can reference to increase the probability of us making gains by buying and selling altcoins at the right time, check out this video guide all about the Morales Moneyline charting tool by clicking on the link above. Great. Now let's transfer crypto from our Tangent Wallet back to Coinbase exchange to practice for when we want to lock in profits by converting it to fiat and transferring it to our bank accounts. Note that you can take profit in stablecoins directly on the Tangent Wallet app without transferring it by tapping on the token, tapping exchange, entering the amount, and tapping swap. There's also an option to sell for fiat using moon pay if we tap sell. However, you will have to set up an account with them which is a good idea so we have multiple options to trade and sell crypto when the market is hot as some exchanges get overwhelmed, freeze transactions, prevent withdrawals, etc. So open the Coinbase exchange app, tap receive, select the crypto, for example Ethereum on the Ethereum network, tap copy, then open the Tangent Wallet app. On the dashboard, tap and hold Ethereum, then tap send. Paste the Ethereum network wallet address from Coinbase in the address field. Select the amount of Ether to send, which as usual start with a small amount to test first to make sure it works, then tap send. After a few minutes or so, depending on how busy the network or exchange are, it will show up on the exchange and from there you can sell it for your country's currency and then transfer it to your bank account. Amazing. Now let's connect our Tangent Wallet to a Web3 application so we can start using decentralized platforms like Morales Money. But first it's extremely important to make sure we are accessing the correct and official sites as well as understanding exactly what is going to happen when we sign transactions to avoid losing all of our funds from a scammer or hacker using a free browser extension called WalletGuard. I've been using it over the past year and it's been working great, popping up warnings, helping check everything out before transacting, so it's definitely worth checking out and giving it a go whether we are new or experienced in the space. For example, if we start interacting with smart contracts like for minting NFTs, when accessing the site, WalletGuard's phishing protection layer executes and warns you if the website might be harmful, if it was created recently, and if it has a low trust score and if we do proceed to do so with caution. And when we do, before attempting to verify a transaction with our wallet, a second layer of protection is executed with a clear human readable warning about what exactly will happen if you decide to proceed with a transaction, like if it's going to drain your wallet instead of actually mint an NFT. This feature alone would have saved me from losing over $20 ,000 when minting an NFT on a fake lookalike website back in the last bull cycle. Absolutely insane. It can also detect and will notify you if the site is making multiple attempts to interact with your wallet, trying to hack and steal funds. So, WalletGuard is a must have as a crypto investor, so make sure to scroll down and use the link below to access the correct and official site to download WalletGuard's free extension to protect your wallet and crypto assets today. Seriously, it takes like 10 seconds and if you'd like to see a video guide all about how it works, click on the link above. Nice. Now that we've got an added layer of protection to keep our wallets and funds more secure when interacting with Web3 apps, let's learn how to connect our Tangem wallet to a Web3 app called Morales Money. Make sure to use the link in the description area below to access the correct and official site, as well as redeem any special offers they have for us. Before connecting, open the Tangem app, tap Manage Tokens at the bottom, tap BNB and make sure the BNB Beacon Chain and BNB Smart Chain options are enabled. That way the connection to Morales Money platform goes more smoothly. Using the link below, when we arrive at the site, we can see a screen full of crypto bubbles that show us which altcoins are up versus down in the latest price action. And in the top right hand corner, click on the Sign Up Login button, then click Login via Wallet.

Enter your access code, tap the Tangem card to your phone, and on the Morales Money screen, enter your email address, and now you're connected to the Morales Money Web3 app. This is a platform with a lot of different functionalities that helps us with finding new altcoins, trading them, and much much more, which you can learn all about in this video walkthrough by clicking on the link above. Just to give you an overview of what we can do with our Tangem wallets connected to Morales Money, we can check out our wallet balances by clicking on this profile picture in the top right hand corner and then clicking My Wallet. And here we can view all of our tokens, and under the NFT tab, we can also view any NFTs on our wallets. Nice. And on the navigation menu at the top of the screen, if we click Swap, then click on the dropdown that says Trading Account, we can click Main Account, which opens up our wallet. And if we click Swap, we can select a token to sell from our wallet to buy another token on the Ethereum, Binance, or Polygon blockchain networks. All straight on the blockchain without having to transfer tokens to and from centralized exchanges. Very neat. On Morales Money, we can also go to the Explore Coins option and choose a predetermined filter like Top Recently Minted Coins with Experienced Buyers. And if one of the tokens seems interesting and you want to gamble on some, click on it. And on the right here, we can instantly swap tokens in our wallet to the new token directly on chain.

A highlight from Wholehearted Worship
"Now, if you can turn your Bibles, your Raps, to 1 Corinthians 14. After today, we got one more before we talk a little bit about gratitude, and then we get into the incarnation in preparation for Christmas. And we're going to pick up in verse 13, therefore, one who speaks in a tongue should pray that he may interpret. For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays, but my mind is unfruitful. What am I to do? I will pray with my spirit, but I will also pray with my mind. I will sing praise with my spirit, but I will sing praise with my mind also. Otherwise, if you give thanks with your spirit, how can anyone in the position of an outsider say to amen your thanksgiving when he does not know what you are saying? For you may be giving thanks well enough, but the other person is not being built up. I thank God that I speak in tongues more than all of you. Nevertheless, in church, I would rather speak five words with my mind in order to instruct others than 10 ,000 words in a tongue. Brothers, do not be children in your thinking. Be infants and evil, but in your thinking, be mature. In the law, it is written, by people of strange tongues and by the lips of foreigners, I will speak to this people, and even then, they will not listen to me, says the Lord. Thus, tongues are a sign not for believers, but for unbelievers, while prophecy is a sign not for unbelievers, but for believers. If therefore the whole church comes together and all speak in tongues and outsiders or unbelievers enter, will they not say that you are out of your minds? But if all prophecy and an unbeliever or outsider enters, he is convicted by all, he is called to account by all. The secrets of his heart are disclosed, and so, falling on his face, he will worship God and declare that God is really among you. May God bless the reading of his word this morning. Let's pray. Father, as we sit under the counsel of your word, make us like trees that are planted by the river, bearing fruit and season. May your word not return void, but may you do great things through the renewing of our minds this morning. Well, there are a number of song lyrics that people mishear. Not, you know, it's not the weird Al making up new lyrics to a song, but because of all the stuff that's going on in the music and the blurring of consonants and of the sound of vowels, people hear the wrong thing. And so one of the more famous or some of the more famous ones are, there's a bathroom on the right. Yeah, Jimi Hendrix in some people's mind said, excuse me while I kiss this guy. That's not what he's saying. For some people, it's sweet dreams are made of cheese. Perhaps that's speaking about pizza dreams. I'm not really sure. But for others, they thought we built this city on sausage rolls. So I'm not sure how that happens. Dire straits apparently once saying money for nothing and chips for free. That's a good restaurant right there. I can see clearly now Lorraine is gone. Queen saying apparently in some people's minds, kicking your cat all over the place. Okay, sometimes I want to kick cats. I don't tell my children that. And the last one is I used to work with someone who's thought the song was tube steak boogie. Not sure what hot dogs or sausage have to do with the boogie, but nonetheless, that's what she thought. We can be confused about things. That's where really I'm going about this. There's a lot that can happen within the course of a worship service that can be confusing to people. They don't understand. They don't hear right. And we don't want to add to that confusion unnecessarily. And this morning, we're going to talk about wholehearted worship. And Paul continues with that theme that he has begun already about the need for intelligibility, the need for people to understand what you're saying, and I would say by extension, what in the world is going on? And so the first part of this that I want to talk about from verses 13 and 19 is that wholehearted worship engages mind and spirit. Wholehearted worship engages both the mind as well as the spirit. Paul has been talking about how love is intended to govern the spiritual gifts precisely so that we grow in faith, hope, and love. And as we grow in faith, hope, and love, we can offer to others in the course of our worship strength, encouragement, and comfort.

A highlight from 196 - 10 Timeless Lessons for Crypto Investors With Morgan Housel
"Look, I'm a very optimistic guy, but the answer is no, there's absolutely no hope whatsoever. I would bet so heavily that 100 years from now we're going to have bubbles that would look exactly like they did in 1999 and exactly like they would have during the housing bubble. Pick your bubble 100 years from now, 200 years from now, that's going to be the case. Welcome to Bankless, where we explore the frontier of internet money and internet finance. This is how to get started, how to get better, how to front run the opportunity. This is Ryan John Adams, and I'm here with David Hoffman, and we're here to help you become more bankless. Guys, a lot has changed in crypto throughout the cycles, but some things haven't. We're here to talk about the things that haven't changed. We've got timeless investing wisdom applied to crypto from writer and investor Morgan Housel on today's episode. So a few different things you need to know for different parts of the cycle. We've got lessons for the bear market, lessons for the bull market, and lessons for the apathy market. A few takeaways for you. Number one, why the bear market was painful, necessary, and yet good. Number two, why those that survived the bear market now have an advantage. Number three, how to manage your brain during a bull market when things get frothy. Number four, how to actually be happy no matter how much wealth you have. Number five, the traps that you're going to fall into during the bull market, unless you know how to spot them well in advance. Number six, optimism versus pessimism, how to balance them to become a better investor. David, I could have been like listed 10 more of these because I feel like the insights per minute on this episode today were absolutely off the charts. We put in the title 10 timeless lessons for crypto, but the truth is there's probably like a hundred here. There's like too many to count and we didn't really count them. What's the significance of this episode for you? I think the most significant thing about this episode is the timing in which Morgan's book just happened to come out along with all of the bullishness that's coming out of the crypto space. We are about to enter a time in which the bull market beer goggles are on and we need advice like this to merge into our brain and have deep understanding of as we navigate that bull market because this is when the time in the market in which this advice is the hardest to follow, yet it is going to have the most ROI if you can follow it. This is like trying to flex your brain muscle, your diligence, your own discipline as an investor. And so like listen to this episode, write notes, listen to it twice, do something that you need to do to merge this information into your brain because it will save you multiples of your portfolio as you navigate the bull market. It is timeless wisdom. It's wealth generation strategy is wealth preservation. And it's also, I would say just like the perfect Ryan and David episode, one part investing, one part psychology. Like I said, just the timing of it all. I think it is perfect. Yeah. The wise investor wins. The disciplined investor wins. I think this is even truer in crypto than it is in traditional markets, actually, David. And so we hope you enjoyed this episode with Morgan Housel. He'll be right on. We're going to begin in a minute, but before we do, we want to thank the sponsors that made this possible, including the venue in which you could practice all of this timeless crypto wisdom.

We had Morgan on a year ago to talk about the principles in his book called the psychology of money. I got it right behind me on the bookshelf. I don't know if you could see it guys. It's one of the best investing books that I've read in the last decade. And that episode is my recommendation for one of our top 10 must listen to episodes for crypto investors, particularly if you're starting on the bankless journey. But today, Morgan brought some new timeless advice for us because he's just published a new book. It's called the same as ever. And this is a guide to what never changes. It's a series of 23 punchy stories, timeless truths about people, societies and how to live. This, my friends, is important wisdom as we go into the crypto bull market. Morgan, welcome to Bankless. Welcome back, I should say. Yeah, Ryan, David, thanks for having me. Looking forward to it. I mean, let's start with the theme of this book. Why are you focusing on stuff that's the same? Isn't the same stuff boring? Like, why not new things? It is boring, which is why we don't pay attention to it. But that's always at our own detriment. So I've been a financial writer for going on 18 years now. And a big part of that journey and what I've written about was just how like frustrated, cynical, disgruntled I became at how bad the entire industry was at forecasting the next bear market, the next recession, like anything, no matter what it was. I mean, here's one little example of this that I was thinking about this morning. I remember I'm pretty sure it was in Fortune magazine. It was one of the big business magazines. They published an article in 1999 that was 10 stocks for the decade ahead. It was like 10 safe blue chip stocks that like you can count on for the decade ahead. And I swear it was Enron, AIG, Kodak. It was like go down the list of the companies that went out of business. This is one like everyone knows how bad the community is, not just the media community, but economists, financial advisors, analysts, portfolio managers, and predicting what's going to happen next. So there's two things you can do with that realization. You can become even more angry about it and just a fatalist and say, nobody knows anything. Don't even try. Or you can say, what does never change? We have no ability to predict what is going to change. That's probably too blanket of a statement, but it rounds to that for most people. But if you look across economic history, and not just economic history, but a lot of history, it's the same behaviors over and over and over again. It's like how we respond to greed and fear and risk and uncertainty that never changes. And if you read about financial crises from 100 years ago, 200 years ago, it's the same thing. It's the same thing over and over and over again. So then I was like, well, let's just focus on that. Let's just focus on what we know is never going to change. I have no idea when the next bear market is going to come, but I know exactly how people are going to respond to it and what they're going to think about it and how they're going to feel, because that's never changed. So that was kind of where it came into play for me, was just starting with a frustration and then saying, okay, well, what's the positive way out of that observation rather than just becoming more of a cynic? Morgan, if I can make a prediction about the content that we were about to discuss, there's that old quip of one fish swims past the other and says, how's the water? I think the fish replies, what's water? Implying that there are so many things that happen so frequently that we just can't identify it. I think the Bankless version of this was like our first few episodes was about identifying money because it's such an invisible force that we never really approach and attack head on, that when you do, your brain opens up and all of a sudden there's a world that's expanded to you. I feel like that's about what we're about to get with you in a variety of different lessons. There are so many fundamental about truths the way that the world works that we just are not awoke to because of how like default they are, how common denominator that are. That's my prediction about this. And here's what I love about this. I've been pretty open. I'm not a crypto investor. I'm not a crypto, you know, completely negative. It's all going to hell. It's all a joke. I'm not that person either. But here's why I think that doesn't matter in this. And this is the same for psychology and money. The overlap between the behaviors among a crypto investor versus an index fund investor versus a mutual like a municipal bond investor. There's a lot of overlap there. How people respond to greed, fear, risk, uncertainty, it's all the same. And so much of what I've loved about the kind of research that I get to do is I'm a financial writer, but actually don't read or research that much about finance. I love reading about all kinds of different history, all kinds of different fields and recognizing when those behaviors in medicine or military or like physics or take any field and seeing how they respond to these topics applies perfectly to investing. Morgan, so another thought I have, you were talking about your frustration. You decided to channel that frustration with all of the, you know, noise in the finance industry into a book, The Psychology of Money, and now kind of this book. I still predict that people like you, people like me, maybe people like David, people who are listening to this advice and this wisdom and actually applying it will still continue to be frustrated because I think we are still in the minority of people who are actually applying these lessons. So I'm zooming out. Crypto is probably about to enter a next bull market. And Morgan, I guarantee you, we are going to make many of the exact same mistakes we made in the previous bull market and we're going to do it over and over and looking at this and you're like, it's going to happen again, isn't it? We're going to do the exact same thing. Is there any hope in this book of breaking us out of that cycle or is the hope only at the individual level that an individual can kind of wake up and be like, Hey, I don't have to do this. I can see all the other dumb humans repeating the same mistakes, but I don't have to do it. Or is there hope that we could actually break this cycle as kind of a society, as an industry, as a, you know, a market? Look, I'm a very optimistic guy, but the answer is no, there's absolutely no hope whatsoever.

Remember those first three days of the week even though we were in the green it was relatively tepid gains here so the strength that we're seeing here on this Friday really just kind of clawing us back I think to kind of where we were about a week ago. The Dow Jones Industrial Average is gonna finish out the day higher up by about 1 % or about 390 points and change. The S &P 500 higher by about 68 points or 1 .6 % and if an official close above 4400 4415 and change which is also above that 100 day moving average. Meanwhile the NASDAQ composite higher by almost 300 points or 2 % on the day and for once the Russell 2000 decides it actually wants to play along up a percent on the day. Alright well that's pretty broad -based at least in the S &P 500. Peeling back the layer there Scarlett you see 436 stocks in the S &P 500 higher today only 65 moving lower. I feel bad for whoever's doing decliners Scarlett. Yeah that'll be me later on. I look at the New York Stock Exchange almost three stocks higher for everyone that is lower and that it's pretty much reflected in the industry groups as well. Chip companies are the best performers on the day and for the week as well up about five and a half percent this week. Software services and autos that's really Tesla bringing up the rear in terms of the best three performing groups. In terms of laggards because all the industry groups are higher food beverage and tobacco telecom and farmers so the more traditional defensive sectors are not doing as well today. Alright let's take a look at what's going on.

A highlight from Bitcoin Bank Launches! | Custodia Bank Adding Ethereum Next
"All right, so big news today on Custodia Bank and really what this might mean for the Bitcoin market overall. We'll dive in deep. My name is Paul Veron. Welcome back in the Tech Path. Before we get started, if you're thinking about custody, maybe you want to go the route of maybe a Custodia Bank, but you could also go the route of self custody and the route to take with self custody is Tangem. Make sure and check their website out. Just go to tangem .com. You can learn a little bit more about their cards and how they work with a very slick app. Of course, this chip in the card generates a random private key which never gets exposed. One of the best tool sets out there. The cards establish a secure connection over to your app and this is a great way for you guys to get into self custody and they make it super simple. You can go in, order these. These are all biometric obviously tied to your app. You can swap, buy, sell and earn coming soon over with the Tangem card. Make sure and get the three card special because that is the way to go for backups. Use our link down below. It's going to give you an additional 10 % off. All right, so let's get into the news. I want to jump over to Custodia Bank's Twitter account. You guys should follow this account. This of course is Caitlin Long and this is the point that they're hitting in right now. As a non -lending bank, we offer integrated Bitcoin custody and US dollar services, not FDIC insured, just so you guys are aware, under one roof which simplifies user operations and reduces risk. We recently earned approval from the Wyoming Division of Banking so they're going to go live with their Bitcoin custody service along with some other states. I'll break some of those down as well to give you guys kind of a lineup on that. Things that you can do within it, just kind of a couple of highlights here about Custodia. Business services and customers such as digital asset businesses, fintechs, banks, corporate treasurers, trusts, pension funds, endowments, foundations, startups, etc. This means that it's not retail yet. So if you're any kind of entity that essentially is a business organization from an LLC on up, you'd be able to utilize this service. So that's one thing that whether you don't like my guess is they're probably going to make it available to other customers in the future, but of course they'll have to eventually be part of the Fed, which is not necessarily the case. Let's go over to this first clip. This is Caitlin Long talking about why Wyoming was the best place for this. Wyoming law provides customers with clear legal title and that's very important to digital assets. So at Custodia Bank, these digital assets remain with the customer and you're just like a custodian. Yeah, that is the legal structure and it is important to give some historical context. We can go back to the notion that a bank was just a safekeeper of property and that's it. And they would charge a fee for safekeeping the property. And so when you see somebody come to the market like Custodia, which is the first, I think, Wyoming speedy bank that will be offering digital asset custody, Kraken Bank is coming close on our heels as well. We both got our charters in the fall of 2020. It took us three years in both cases to get ourselves open with digital asset custody. And part of the reason is that both of us built our own custody platforms. All right, so just so you guys are aware, there is a hierarchy of how these banks are put together. You have the traditional Fed funded banks that have FDIC insurance out there, typically the banks that you work with every day. And then there is this class that is developing digital asset management. The one thing that she's talking about is this one to one relationship with Bitcoin or the digital asset itself, because that gives you the right to that asset versus in a bank, you're getting that fractional reserve concept. You put in $10, they loan out 90. Those are the kind of models that have been in banking for quite a while. So it's interesting to see, and she even mentioned Kraken Bank, others that will most likely take this into, I think, other states starting to flow out a whole new way of digital services that you'll be able to hold within banking organizations, then it will boil down to the trust level that you have with those companies and those individuals of being able to hold your digital assets. Because remember, these are not FDIC funded, so just be aware of that. So when you look at the customer base, who are they targeting? Listen in. Yeah, so the customer base is businesses only. That's what we're chartered for. We technically have the right to do customers with high account balances as well, but we're not set up yet to do individuals. So we're serving business entities only. It has to be a bonafide business. But it could be an investment business, a multi -member LLC, for example.
A highlight from Episode 384 - Security and privacy of IoT devices, like the family robot
"Dennis Gieser, thanks for joining us for My Security TV and our Tech and Sec Weekly. Welcome to Melbourne for the CyberCon. Thank you very much. Your first time in Melbourne, I understand, and you're on the back of DEFCON in terms of your cyber security research, particularly focused on robots. So we cover robots and drones in a range of different areas as well as cyber security. What's your general message when you come to conferences like this? You're presenting either your research or do you kind of come with a warning or message along the way? So primarily I present my research but sometimes I feel that I wouldn't necessarily say warning but I want to raise awareness of the abilities of devices so that people are kind of more aware of what kind of functionality devices have. It's not necessary to say you don't get them. I mean I have them myself, I use them, but just be aware of what they can do. Well you got to sort of root access to four robots and you found vulnerabilities in all devices. I think that is sort of a key message there but particularly that these devices do have inherent vulnerabilities. How much confidence does that give you moving forward I suppose when we see the explosion of robotics and autonomous systems, some now dealing with critical infrastructure and the like. How much of a risk do you see there, a digital risk moving forward? So I mean my experience is like for like 54 robots and also lawnmowers which I have and I got root access to all of them and for me it's kind of interesting to see like the development of robotics. There was a talk before my talk yesterday from like someone from NATO who was presenting like BattleBots and I was like I don't know if it's a good idea. I mean if a big company like who sells like millions of these devices like vacuum robots they have trouble to make their devices secure than how like even military contractors can make their stuff secure. So that gives me a little bit of worry but I mean outside of my basically paid grades you cannot decide. Well the trouble is I've been doing this for a while and these vulnerabilities continue to be found. Do you find any pattern within the vulnerabilities? Is it particularly some type or aspect of the device itself? Is it software driven or is there vulnerabilities in the hardware as well or firmware? So it's both. When I started initially this was primarily software vulnerabilities but I must say also I'm very driven to get root access so I spent a lot of time even if it takes me like weeks to kind of find things and I develop techniques and getting better and better. I'm still probably like way away from like nation state actors but I have like some expertise nowadays but I am very quick at finding things. And the last couple ones which I found were like basically hardware vulnerabilities where I feel it would be very very difficult for the vendors to patch them. So it's like I feel the current generation of released robots is kind of lost for you know it can't be fixed anymore but I'm curious what the next generation will bring. Do you find that you target the device itself rather than the software? Do you follow any particular methodology? So typically I mean I disassemble as soon as I get the device I disassemble to get an idea of what I'm dealing with. And then I just try to find like debugging pins if I can get it, solder flash, see if I can extract any unencrypted information and then I have like some I would say not necessarily zero days but vulnerabilities which many chips have and I use them to kind of extract even information like from a secured memory and encrypted memory basically. And I suppose lastly the key message for security by design and safer by design, is there any sort of key principles there that you would follow or recommend for the manufacturers? Well one thing which I noticed kind of like as a pattern is that if you have startups that they start with very insecure you know design and this kind of bites them in the long term because they have some legacy kind of software which is on the device still. So if you design a system like from the start like in security in mind then I think you have a better chance to kind of defend against things. But again it kind of depends on what kind of attacker you're dealing with. In the end of the day vacuum robots and also other smart speakers generally like Amazon sells these are not military grade security devices so you know if someone puts a lot of time into it and resources into it they will always get like a you know brute access on them. And I suppose the key problem is that they are listening, they're watching and sensing all sorts of different things as well, I think that's the key point in terms of people's actual consumer product. Yeah one thing I think which is kind of important to stress is that I'm not claiming that the companies are actually spying on you necessarily but the devices have enough sensors that they theoretically could do that and what most people don't realize is that the device which you have at home, the vendor like who produced the device has full control over the device itself and the data which is stored on the device because they can basically if they want to they could push like a firmware update onto it, you wouldn't even notice it, it could just change the functionality of the device. So that's something which people should kind of keep in mind that automatically you don't necessarily own the device but the company. And you certainly don't own the data, they own the data. Correct. Right. The other thing I found of interest with you is you are leading the MIT rocket team right, you're building rockets as well? Yeah it's kind of a hobby, I'm not leading it but I'm building like telemetry kind of devices if we want to launch a rocket so that we find it afterwards if we get the data back. So I sometimes mean it's a student club right so if rockets crash which they do very often, they explode very often then I'm also responsible for like you know try to get the data from the flash memory if the flash is cracked with like this like just a burning rumble afterwards and that's kind of like my you know, I wouldn't say hobby necessarily but it's just a student club which I'm kind of doing. Now you're a PhD researcher, what's your sort of career progression, where are you going to take things further into the future? So initially I thought of primarily doing teaching but I'm not sure right now about that so I'm kind of like in the split phase where I need to decide like okay do I go back to industry because I came from industry or if I stay in academia and I'm still not even sure if I want to stay in US if I go back to Europe so it's kind of like there's a lot of like so I'm kind of like in this state where it's very uncertain right now. Well you're definitely one to watch, we're here at the ACES CyberCon in Melbourne but thank you very much Dennis for joining us on our Tech in Sec Weekly. Thank you, you're welcome. Thank you.
Georgia Forced to Redraw Legislative and Congressional Maps
"Georgia has just been told to redraw their maps, both their legislative maps on the state level and their congressional maps. It's going to be interesting to see how that goes. Um, I had a conversation with someone who was near the governor's office of in Georgia camp, who said, we weren't worried about it until the legislature figures it out. I said, I get that. Um, but you've got North Carolina. The reason I'm setting this up, it's a long setup, but you're bearing with me. Number one, folks, if you don't know, Chip was with a guy named, uh, Lynn Westman. Lynn Westman is a mentor of mine. He's a dear friend, just like he is to chip, uh, served in Congress. I'll tell people this all the time. If Lynn had not went to Congress, Lynn Westman would still be the speaker of the house in Georgia, if not governor. Um, I just believe he would have been and stayed there, but he, but he has an old, you know, contractor, a good old boy mentality. That's just the way he is. But he got in, y 'all got into redistricting heavy, uh, from really his time before you even more started working with him in the early two thousands, all the way to when you were working with him in 2009, 2010, working on the previous maps. This matters. And I'm afraid Republicans chip, and I love to get your input here. I'm afraid Republicans got complacent after the last round and we didn't take this round of redistricting as seriously across the country as say we did back in 2010. Yeah. I mean, it's a word of start, right? I mean, there's so much to unpack there. I mean, it, uh, um, I, I will say this, that, you know, uh, um, section five of the voting rights act, which the Supreme court rightly, you know, kicked out as unconstitutional a lot later than they should have candidly. I mean, a lot of people don't know, but what section five mandated was that if you were under, if you were a section five state or jurisdiction, which Georgia was many of the States in the South were, you had to submit your maps to the justice department for pre -clearance. It was blatantly unconstitutional because, uh, for a variety of reasons that I'm back to what you said about, I'm not a constitutional scholar, but what I do understand is, you know, you, you can't have one set of laws for one people in another state. You can't have another set of laws for another people. So the formula that decided pre -clearance, uh, up until like what, five years ago, maybe six years ago, you know, maybe, you know, was, uh, was the 1968, 1972 presidential election. I mean, are you kidding me? So, you know, now there's this whole cottage industry that the Democrats have. That's much more of a, it's much bigger of a cottage industry that, you know, they raised tens of millions of dollars, if not hundreds of millions of dollars to go after only States that have Republican drawn maps. It's for blame. It's not so they can equal the playing field for minorities to compete. Do not kid yourselves. The reason behind this is to maximize Democrat drawn gist districts. That is political. That is not, that is not leveling the playing field for a particular minority. Um, it's only going after Republican State drawn maps and look, what these judges have done is they move the goalposts every time they make a decision. And I'll say this, and I know I'm going to get criticized for saying it, but federal judges, especially Trump appointed federal judges, you know, in some ways, you know, they're on the federal bench now, and that's a lifetime appointment. Right. You know, they are petrified at being at, at making a ruling at which they could be labeled by the other side as racist.
3.5 Weeks Later: Is House Speaker Mike Johnson Right for the Role?
"Know, look, Mike Johnson is a good guy. I know him personally. I know him very well. He's a good guy. He's been on this podcast multiple times. Um, and so sort of get a behind the scenes in him, but chip one, let's start, let's just go before we get to Mike himself and really the problems are there. Did it really? And I'm, this is not, it's sort of rhetorical, but it's not, it was amazing. It took three and a half weeks. Yeah. I mean, I, what does that show us? And cause one of the reasons I wanted to talk to you today about politics is we're going to get into redistricting. We're going to get into elections. We're going to get into stuff that you and I have been dealing with forever. But, um, I think we still have a problem within the conference, even though they came together and I know there's people passing out in their cars right now, please no heavy traffic here, but it did pass unanimously. But you just get the sense that maybe this, it, and, you know, it's going to be a struggle that reveals deeper schisms within the party. Yeah. I mean, look, I mean, you look, it took three and a half weeks in some ways, Doug, it feels like it took a lot longer than that. Right. I mean, you know, three and a half weeks is a long time, but it, it, it feels like now that we have a speaker, it kind of feels like we went six or seven weeks without one. And, um, you know, the, I was watching, um, um, Mike Johnson's first formal press conference today, he gave it this morning. You know, and the thing that struck me is just how, and I don't know, Mike Johnson, like you do, and I'm getting to learn, you know, a lot more about him, just like most of the American people are right now. And what really struck me, Doug, is just how different he is than Kevin. Right. And that, that's not a knock on Kevin. It's just, you know, I mean, there, you know, as individuals and as elected officials and as people, I mean, people have different strengths and weaknesses and different styles. And, you know, Mike Johnson, what he says, his cadence, his personality, his style, um, probably his tactics, his ideology, I didn't realize how they really are different than Kevin. What's not different are the challenges that he faces. Right. I mean, the challenges that he faces are very similar, if not identical to the ones that Kevin faces. And so, yeah, look, he's going to have a little bit of a honeymoon, but it's going to be about this big and still in the honeymoon phase now. But I don't, I don't know how, you know, especially in light of what happened, you know, with the, you know, motion to vacate the chair and eight Republicans voting for all Democrats to, you know, remove Kevin McCarthy as speaker. I don't know with the, the wounds that exist between, um, you know, the, let's just call it the different sides of the caucus. I mean, I don't, I don't know that, uh, you know, I think everybody kind of wants to get along right now and they are in public, but I mean, you know, we're, I think we'll, we'll see where the rubber hits the road here really within the next two or three weeks.

A highlight from This Altcoin Will 20X OR MORE!! (Raouls All-In Trade)
"Look, we may not be at weekly highs, but we definitely should celebrate the week that we've just had. It was definitely the first week of the bull market where we can clearly say that we're in a raging bull market. And I think we're in the beginning of a bull market. But what's going to happen now is I think we're only about 25 % of the way into the bull market and the rest of this bull market goes up really, really, really fast. We've had the tame part of the bull market and the rest of the bull market goes up very fast. Now, a lot of questions. How high will we go? How long will this bull market run? What are going to be the top three, four, five coins that are going to perform in this bull market? That is what we're going to be discussing today. Today, I've got a massive, massive banter for you. I've got a big friend of the channel here joining us, Raul Paul joining us. And we're going to talk about everything to do with this raging bull market. Today is going to be a massive, massive, I'm going to say it again, massive show. So let's go. Let's do this. As I said, we're not at the weekly highs, but we've had an amazing week. And if I would have told you that Solana would be in the 40s or late 30s at the end of the week, you would have laughed at me. And if I would told you that Bitcoin would be around 35 ,000 or 34 ,000, you would have laughed at me. Yet, here we are, and we should be celebrating. We should be celebrating the month that we've had. We should be celebrating the week that we've had. But most of all, we should be celebrating the fact that, guys, we are finally, after 770 days, we are finally in the raging bull market. And today, we're going to talk only about one thing. We're only talking about the raging bull market, how long it will last, how big it's going to be, how much money we're going to make, how high Solana is going to go. And I think Raul Paul's got an amazing Solana prediction, and I wonder if it's anything similar my to prediction. But before we get into the main show, first of all, if you're not a subscriber to this channel, what are you waiting for? Subscribe. I'm going to wait. I'm going to wait. I'm waiting. Subscribe. All right, and if you are subscribed, just smash the Like button, especially if you like what we're saying here today. Smash that Like button. Obliterate it. Let's get into the meat and potatoes of the show. In fact, one more little announcement. If you haven't already voted in our winner Bitcoin competition, go and vote. Go and vote. So, if you want to win a Bitcoin, it's so simple. It's so simple. All you need to do is open a crypto banter account in any of our exchanges using any of our referral links. Ryan, Mal, Annie, Sheldon, any referral link that you want, even our school. And if you don't have an account, use these links over here to get the account. And you can get huge sign -up bonuses, $30 ,000 in buy, but that's obviously the main exchange that I trade on. $8 ,000 in BitGet, OKEx, CoinW if you're living in the States, BitGet if you're living in Canada. And then every account allows you for five votes, right? And you can only make one vote a week. So you better get there and start voting to get five chances to win one full Bitcoin. No one in the world is going to give you the opportunity to win one full Bitcoin so easily. Anyway, with that said. All right, let's get up onto the stage. Raoul, how are you, my friend? You're starting to feel like a bull market out there, hey? It is. I'm back in Little Cayman. That was bull market backdrop. So yeah, it does. That is the true story. That is the bull market backdrop. And we're back there again. I remember that. The pool table and the bar, real bull market stuff. But this week was like a week where, for the first time, I actually felt, you know what, we're back in that raging bull market territory, right? Yeah. And as you and I have talked about, I still think it's crypto spring. We're not yet in summer. But you're just getting the later stage of spring, where you start to have a few nice days in a row. And it starts to feel good. And you start to think about having drinks outside in the pub and doing things in the sun. So that's what that point. It usually really doesn't get going. This is usually the prequel. Usually doesn't get going until summer of next year, which is that kind of halving year. That's when it goes like this almost every day for 18 months. So I wanted to show you. It's not nice for once to come in and go, oh, my god, is that up that much? That was good. I must say, so the first thing is I read this quote, which says, an entire Bitcoin bear market is behind us, and an entire Bitcoin bull market is ahead of us. And I just think that that is so where we're at. But the same account, it's an account called Rec Capital. He says he believes that we're 26 .5 % into the bull market, which means that there's 75 % odd left of this bull market. I mean, if you look at his drawings, the first 76 .5 % is actually quite slow relative to the later stages of the bull market. That's right. I mean, if I were to ask you how far into the bull market you believe we are, is this a fair representation? Exactly. It matches the business cycle framework that I've been using, the halving cycle framework. I've been more erring towards a repeat of something like 2015 without that red herring of 2019. So I think we're at the stage where we're just kind of breaking out, then we're likely to finish the year strong, and then sideways for a while, sideways to down for a bit before it really gets going. So it's somewhere between the 2019 and the 2015 -16 cycle. And what do you think happened this week? Why this week all of a sudden did we get this wake up? Did something change? Did liquidity change? Did policies change? What was it that? I mean, is there anything, or was it just, we're just here, and that's it? It seems that there was some story that BlackRock had already bought some buffer so they can sell ETF when it comes out. But I don't think that's a lot, but there's clearly new capital come into the space. We saw it with CoinShares, a few others, starting to report inflows of capital. So that's new money going into the economy, and obviously, a bunch of board degens turn it into a lot of price rises. But then we had the other story that ignited, so Bitcoin had been strong anyway because of the ETF. ETH has been kind of, it was OK, but it's been pretty sideways for a while. The thing that really started igniting was both DeFi stuff. They came out of nowhere really rallying, and that's often early season stuff. And the other was obviously Solana. Yeah, well, so DeFi, you can see, if I look at the gains this week, you can see Solana is obviously the biggest. But then you do see the DeFi protocols. You see Aave, you see all the, I saw Uniswap had a run, and there it is to 10 .7%, Curve had a run. I want to talk a little bit about Solana. We will go into the macro, and we will talk about the macro. You were pretty bullish around Solana when we spoke last time. Now we've had the DevCon. I don't know how much you updated yourself around what happened at the DevCon. It was an amazing, amazing conference, let me tell you. I'm actually still here in Amsterdam. I'll tell you what I saw, and then maybe I'd love to hear your views. But for one, I saw that the community is absolutely thriving, and I came up with a metric of brains per square foot at the conference, brainpower per square foot at the conference. And from a brainpower per square foot at the conference, I don't think I've seen a conference like that since ETH DevCon in 2017, which is when the big brains of the Ethereum community actually arrived there. There were no retail investors. There was no Flaff. There was no one talking about price. They came out, and they spoke about real announcements. So every single announcement was a real announcement. Google was a real announcement. Visa was a real announcement. Render was a real announcement. AWS was a real announcement. There was no announcement that you could drill holes into. At the same time, they also came out with network upgrade announcements, which one of them was Fideancer, which is going to give them up to a million transactions per second. Everyone thinks that that's where it stops, but that's not where it stops. It takes it one step further because Fideancer is the last step in making Solana decentralized. Right now, there's only one Solana validator client, which is the Solana validator client that Solana wrote. Now, there's going to be a second one, which means that it's the first time that you've got a second validator client that can't be updated by the foundation, which means that it's really, really, really a decentralized protocol now that can do one million transactions per second on the main net without having to go into layer twos. So I'm leaving here. I'm leaving Amsterdam tomorrow, and I'm leaving here extremely bullish about Solana. Extremely, extremely bullish. The way I see it, if there's any protocol that is going to get that one consumer mass adoption app, it's going to be Solana. It's not going to be an ETH layer 2. That's how I'm leaving here. I know you weren't at the conference, but I'm keen to hear your views. So you're picking up exactly what my thesis has been, and that thesis has been growing for about a year and a bit about I think Solana's main thing is this consumer chain because it can do a lot. So obviously, when it sold off last year, I bought it all the way through. And then I started going down the fire dance a rabbit hole. And I'm like, OK, this is a game changer because jump trading who are building it, they have one constraint that they try and work to, which is speed of light. Because what they're trying to do is get that order in to the exchange and the prices out of the exchange as fast as possible ahead of all their competition. So there's that whole book, Flash Boys, about this, where it's all about the size and the quality of your fiber optic cable and how close you are to the exchange. And then it's how fast your computer is. So they fully understand this. And they've built it to be fast enough for high frequency trading. OK. Now, for people to understand what a million TPS means, Twitter is like 24 ,000 TPS. WhatsApp is like 40 ,000 TPS. It's like this is a order of magnitude. It's 20x what Solana does, which is already the fastest chain. So the applications that's going to come out of this are game changing. And it's kind of pushed apart the argument of the trilemma because it not only made it more secure, but cheaper and faster. So, OK, that's interesting because that was not supposed to be solvable. It feels to me like we're solving some of the blockchain trilemma. On top of that, compressed NFTs. To be able to create a million NFTs for $100 basically tells me that's ticketing, that's all sorts of stuff, receipts, anything. So you've created new business models that people don't understand exist yet. They're still thinking of, you know. I'm actually getting something out on my phone, which I managed to take at the conference. And I actually think I want to read this out to you. So if you want to mint 10 ,000 NFTs on Solana, it'll cost you $18. If you want to mint 10 ,000 NFTs in Ethereum, it'll cost you $30 ,855. If you want to mint 10 ,000 NFTs on Polygon, it'll cost you $52 .09. OK, so when you scale that up to 10 million, on Solana, it'll cost you $5 ,219. On Ethereum, it'll cost you $31 million. And on Polygon, it'll cost you $52 ,087. So this is, and this is before FireDancer, by the way. This is before you implement FireDancer, just to give you an idea of the power of this network. And this is why Visa are interested. This is why, you know, they're starting to have a lot of announcements, because what they've built now is something truly extraordinary. And the price is truly extraordinary, because nobody believed this. Exactly. They were so busy saying, it's a FTX token, it's a SAM coin, it's going bust, there's no devs. It was all bullshit all the way through. Yeah, yeah. Look, we were obviously buying, we were encouraging the community to buy, we were unpopular for buying. I mean, I showed the community the trades that we actually took. I'm interested, I mean, let's have some fun. And I'm not going to hold you to any price predictions. But when I look at the market cap of ETH, I think the market cap of ETH today, and I'm going to in the beginning of a cycle, you know, we can argue that this is probably the beginning of the altcoin cycle, the market cap of ETH is about $220 billion. The market cap of Solana is about $17 billion. So you know, under the assumption of going into a bull market, let's have some fun. And just like, where do you think Solana can go in the cycle? So how I've been thinking about it is looking at previous cycles, how high above the previous high goes. it So if we look at, you know, if you look at Solana now, or you can look at Ethereum in the previous cycle, I think of Solana very much like Ethereum in 2017. OK, let's get that chart out. So that is Sol, and Sol's going back, let's go back to, that's Ethan, let's go back to 2017. Let's go on a weekly, it'll just make it quicker and easier. Yeah. So 2017, ETH went to $1 ,640. The starting point was obviously the ICO, which was at a couple of cents, I think $0 .07, $0 .09. It went to about $1 ,640. The next cycle, it went up to, I think, $5 ,400. $5 ,000. Yeah. So it was like a 3x above the all -time high. Yes. So then what's the all -time high of Solana? It's about $250. Yeah. So you say, OK, a reasonable target would be 3x the all -time high. OK, so that would take Solana to $600, which is a 12x. Now, this is exactly my thesis. So hear me out, yeah. I think it goes further than that, potentially, but who knows, right? We've all learned from the previous bull market not to give price targets because people just want to beat you over the head with them. Yeah. I mean, we're just having some fun. I mean, just looking at some scenarios. For me, the way I looked at it, I said, look, if Solana just gets to 80 % of ETH, what ETH is now at the top of the cycle? And if that happens, Solana gets to call it a $180 million market cap, which is about, which is, I think today it's at a 15, so it's a 10x. So what you're saying in terms of $600, I'm saying probably $500, $400, $500. So I think the numbers are there or thereabouts. Yeah. And obviously, the numbers have changed dramatically, because when I started looking at this, it was trading at 20, like 20, and we've already gone up a lot since then. So these numbers keep halving every time we keep going up a lot. But yeah, my idea is somewhere between $500 and $1 ,000, just depending what that market feels like. Do you see a world, do you see the world like I see the world, I see like top of the cycle Bitcoin, Ethereum, Solana, and then everything else underneath it, the BNBs, the XRPs, the you know, the only one, the only one that I don't know is what's going to happen with stablecoins. But I think if we remove stablecoins, I kind of see it as like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Solana. I actually do too, which obviously means we're going to be blindsided by something else that's interesting that we didn't think of, you know, the Solana of this cycle. What is that going to be? I'm not good enough to pick those, you're better at picking the smaller stuff. I just, I'm, you know, with a macro bet like this, it's like so much easier, because like, it's so fucking obvious. You know, it survived a crisis, it launches, the tech goes massively improving, the community's good, the only on Solana narrative is very good. So, Tolly is one of the best thought leaders in the entire space. You're like, okay, this is, it seems like the highest quality bet. You know, I did a show earlier this week for my community. And you know, what I said is, you have like 500 days to make life -changing money in crypto. And when I say 500 days, that takes you to the top of the next bull market. And I said, look, the secret is that what you're going to do is you're going to have a fully diversified portfolio. You're going to put the majority of your chips into the tokens that you think are very safe. And this was the last ETF that we actually made, it was Bitcoin, Ethereum, Solana, and we put 50 % of our money into Bitcoin, Ethereum, Solana. But then we had a few that actually exploded, like Casper exploded. And the $200 investment became worth $101 ,000 and the Kujira $300 investment became a $92 ,000 investment. So, you know, if you did that, your $10 ,000 became worth $400 ,000. And that's, I think, the importance of placing some small bets on the ones that you're pretty scared of. Yeah. But the other flip side of that, as I said, you're better than me, is I end up with the shrapnel of shame sitting in my wallet of all of the things that I bought. And it's fine. It's like a VC. You don't know what's going to fly, what's not. I just never had any of those fly. So I've just got a bunch of shame sitting in various wallets.
Devastating Injury Rocks the Vikings
"Okay, Chip and James, got a lot to talk about here this week. But James, we're going to defer to you. It was a tough week for the Vikings. We could talk about this or we could just find other things to depress me. This was, it was weird. I'll tell you what. It was really weird because my dad was telling me and my dad are dead. When it comes to the Vikings, that's our thing. That's what we care about the most. when Um, I texted him, I know you can't tell if someone's crying over text, but I was pretty sure he was crying because not that, not that we were going to win a Super Bowl or anything, but we were turning it around and people were kind of getting excited. We had the chains, Kirk go back, all that fun stuff. Is there anything more devastating than an injury that's not caused by the other team? Oh yeah. Yeah. Okay. I have a question here for both of you. Before we get into your MBV candidate, now that's come in as quarterback, um, the, uh, is, is Achilles just the, the injury to juror this year, or is there a reason Achilles is becoming more and more problematic with quarterbacks with wider savers, anything else? Or is it just, just one of those years? I, I think it's just happened with two very high profile quarterbacks. Right. And anytime that happens, it's going to get a lot of attention. Um, but you know, and talking about the Vikings, Doug, I mean, what four weeks ago, you know, they're, uh, you know, they're one, two at quarterback and wide receiver was Kurt cousins and Jordan Jefferson, and now it's Joshua Dobbs and KJ Osborn, so I'm going in the right direction to KJ Osborn, who I think is a good receiver, but what's good is, first of all, Jordan Addison is now our number one receiver that man is he literally showed up the moment Jefferson went down. They were like, all right, let's just throw him the ball. Um, and that was because of cousins. Yeah, let's do, let's, let's just pay our respect because Kurt cousin is going to just 35 and be 36 next year. I don't know where he's going to be in his career. That's a devastating thing to get this late coming up in a contract season. Yeah, but he was literally at the top of his game. And that sucks because I know, you know, we can all joke about Kurt cousins, it doesn't play big, blah, blah, blah, but if you just took his numbers and didn't know that he was a huge creed fan and you just took the numbers and you just looked at those, yeah, you would, you would put him up with a bunch of other great players. So despite that, um, uh, the Vikings said, we're not going to do anything, no trades, nothing happens. And then sure enough, MVP candidate, Josh jobs shows up on our doorstep and, uh, he's going to take us to a Superbowl Nick Foles style. I'm certain of it. Cause it's the only way I can get through

My guest today is Riad Wabi. Riad is the CEO and co -founder at Cubist. Very interesting looking new company platform. They're solving key management. We'll learn all about this today. Welcome to the show, Riad. Thanks very much. Thanks for having me. I really, really appreciate it. Hey, it is a pleasure. Let's do what we do at the beginning of the show, Riad. It'd be great if you could please introduce yourself. It'd be really good if we could hear some of your personal and professional backstory. What you've been doing, I believe, involves computer science. Be surprised if it didn't. What you've been doing in the lead -up to co -founding Cubist. Yeah, so believe it or not, it actually starts with electrical engineering, not computer science. So a long time ago, I realized I really like to get into the guts of things and somehow as an undergrad, I was like, you know, the the guttiest of guts is like, you know, low level circuits. And so I ended up as an integrated circuit designer, spent, oh, geez, about 10 years designing chips. And at some point, I was friends with somebody who was a computer science professor. And he told me, you know, these new things called zero knowledge proofs, they're really cool. And we're starting to build on them. And you should join us. And his name is Mike Walfish. At the time, he was at University of Texas. Now he's at NYU. And at the time, I told him, you're crazy, because I have a job and I own a house and I'm not going to like quit my job to go to grad school and work on zk proofs. But somehow two years later, he convinced me that indeed I should.

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 that's where I dropped my first episodes of Coin Stories. Not expecting this to become my full time job. Just hoping to meet Bitcoiners and find more guests for the show. Anything can happen here, especially if you dream of working in the industry. Ticket prices go up every month until the big event. So don't miss out. You want to get your tickets early.

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.

It's just going to be Um, community thing where we all come together and talk about, uh, the event and what it means to us today. 20 years later, um, it's important. Let me go to Robert in the city on the lesson, the over arching lesson that we have learned or should learn, I guess And your case, I'm Robert. Chip. We haven't learned two things. There's 32 nations sailing around the Black Sea right now, and Russia has all but sad. The next NATO worship that sales within 12 miles of the Crimean Peninsula will be sunk. We are there are a lot of us Torit ease out there, Chip. That are weighing in on this and the Washington Post. Don't make me laugh. Uh, there that had all but you can go in and read what? The Russian foreign services. Okay, let's go back to what happened on 9 11. Okay. Russia wasn't involved in that at all. Um yeah, the the lesson. I think that most of us are talking about here is American involvement. Um, obviously, Russia and Putin Are well, especially Putin is running a country that is in dire shape. He and his, uh kleptocrats are stealing billions from it every year. Um, they have a lot of problems. You know, and I thank you for your call. I don't think there's going to be a war between us and Russia. Uh, it would not serve anyone and saying what China. Now it's it's the non uniformed combatants. That we have to watch for. And the question is, why are they gunning for us? Um Is it a righteous thing? Or is it based on ignorance and fear and jealousy? Or maybe a little bit of both. I mean, that is a fair question. Um You know, just look at our country here. Okay? And look at vaccines..

"Benny dig a little deeper into the more complex spots so the progression goes as spots. Get more complex. The general structure is the same. Like i said it's data for the spot sorted dig deeper into more interesting concepts. Take a few flops in illustrate some stuff. That lies more broadly to the game. Sort of the way would approach. Learning is how i organize it but you can buy the course then say i know pre flop. I know how to play under big wind. Because i've been working at myself. I have no idea how to play squeezed. Opposition i'm going to jump video thirty five and watch the squeezed pot stuff. Maybe i'm going to brush up on bunn verse big wind next week. I'll go back to the want. Choose your adventure aspect to finish. Finding nick i spoke with your collaborator. Upswing our mutual friend. Mike brady ahead of this interview and he asked me to ask you about how many hours i went into the course material. He promised me that way mind will be blown. What ultimate ratio between our spent versus hours that viewers can watch so. It's tricky like my. I think mike brought that up. Because we did have a little hiccup with some pre flop stuff. That ended up taking me twice as long. Because i made all these raked ranges than i realized. I need ranges with no rake because rangers are goosey. No-one plays like that. And also because there's a lot of time games which was obviously mistakes so basically ended up spending twice as long brief lab. And the way that works. If you wanna put it in a module to beat for people to be able to watch web-based video you gotta go from whatever. Solve your used Over by worked closely with munger guy. Who's great i work with and you can pay to help you build stuff and get it done much more quickly than you can allow. The case goes ramon solver converted into peo- charts because that's what you use the post flop section and then you gotta put it in excel and paint charts a hand basically. So that's just two hundred hours work right off the bat after you count these things run for like three or four months to get eight max for her blinds with anti is not gonna be done quickly so the whole process already takes like maybe under fifty hours two hundred or whatever and then you take all those ranches in script them and then you gotta talk about them for thirty hours and sometimes you're staring at like obviously i don't understand everything in coker so i'm staring at something and i'm like i want to explain this and when i don't even know it so you can take like an hour to sit there and make sense of it for like a twenty minute video her fifteen minute video or whatever so i would say it's going to end up being right around the three hundred hour mark. It's a long way to answer that. Like everything else. I do but Yeah right around three hundred hours. I had no idea was using to fire a shot at to their fire. Shot yet. No yeah mike's great. He's easy to work with fiscally. I do these things like big chunks. So i go full At the computer for a couple of weeks at a time and it ends up being. Yeah like i said. Probably about three hundred hours. Impressive still look at has been fantastic to chat to you today. A fitting way to close the curtain on our fifteen season of the show if you like what you heard here. Next course will be available on upswing at the end of this trench thank you. Thanks a lot of israeli. He's talking to you guys appreciate it. Thanks well.
"chip" Discussed on The Chip Race
"I really liked the logical. That makes a lot of sense. I gotta say this hand is starting to feel or cord from your point of view. You've obviously got your read on the situation but it's getting expensive and feels close to surrender time for me to sell fine folds here first of all i have to say this was another super annoying bash. I expected matt just shoveling the money on the turn. And then i could fold and go after dinner with maria konakov who is harboring impatient. He over my shoulder. When you want the hell. I was doing the last time before dinner break. So when he made the small dead. Now i had to think Joy actually have faculty to continue. Now certainly beating bluffs. It was the second diamond. So he can have picked up a flush draw. Potentially maybe even ahead of so after some tall i decided. I don't think i can fold to this. That yes also. I still had the lingering suspicion of shenanigans so didn't think i necessarily have to improve to win the river. Is it interesting spot to got in the solid. Run my kind of nail deduction analysis that the sovereignty doesn't like check raising the flop but if we do check raise the flop. It absolutely loves using. This is on the turn it makes sense and actually the soliver bets fifty eight percent of its range on this courage at that size. Mike call equilibrium. It turns out his actually break even exactly break even the soliver to avoid getting calls twenty five percent of the time and the rest interesting well to the river. The puck is eighty point. Four biggs the sp are is point. Two five to one and it comes the five of diamonds. Bring a far from irrelevant diamond. You have some go back door hands. That might have taken this line. Matt you check and derek you chauve for twenty bigs mc folds now wants you check here having taken such an aggressive line and with there. Only being a small laughed. Are you waving the white flag here or are there some bluff catches. I think they're absolutely should be some bluff catches. I would say that the hands it probably make the most sense to check to maybe call off would be my very strong value. Hans that may on this run out get folds from his weaker bluff catchers anyway but by checking may allow his hands that say maybe have like a diamond block or something like ace jack with these diamonds as time with us. The diamonds too. Now just jim and my hands never a fold say like pocket fours something like king queen where i i also block his. Maybe like thin river valley about says. Well make a lot of sense to have now granted at the time. I don't think i would be nearly so balanced and i. I probably am waving the white flag too high frequency. When i take this exact line for these exact sizes and don't just stuff it in you know again darren i. It does kind of look like we're playing this game of chicken and he's just gonna win it. Well there you decided to show rather than check back. You obviously have that ace of diamonds which is very nice. What hands that beat you. Were you.

"And you only have a gooder told me through your decision to both bass and now call when the flop condone is sorta talk. Well this is an amazing flop for me because as you said i have the top two sets. He almost doesn't imagine he'd four. Bethel's i also thought he would necessarily peel with king queen. Maybe king queen. So i would discount to talk to a bit as well so i thought he based. He doesn't have too many strong hands on this. I have all the strong hands. So indo spots i total cable i can just get away with batting one hundred percent here and i'll just use your really small size given the three about polish. The fact that i had a gutter was neither here nor there really wasn't expecting to get check raised. Remember being quite shocked at the check crease. Quite shocking annoyed modest. I thought this young punk is recognized. That i'm foolish it here but i do have a challenge and i think it would be foolish. So i didn't find it in myself to fold straightaway on Will call him in position. If i'm paying jack. I'm definitely getting it all but i did feel had other ways to win the hand as well so that was sort of the decision to continue awesome. It looks like a junkie raise but like rouser the pockets Junkies just to my very very small baggage junkie. Gotcha well mass. I think i'm right in saying that. You don't remember the specific underplay along and give us what you think your top pros as might have been hearing attack now. Yes so i think at the time. I didn't really believe because again. We have this dynamic where it's dinner break. I've been three that. But i expect especially with this sizing that he's probably getting his entire range here. And you know at the time. I would say my thought process was developed. And i'm probably just like well. He's just gonna fold his garbage check. Raise so i can do that. Plus i can have some strong hands here. Like king queen maybe pocket fours which probably isn't an open under the gun. But i probably was opening at the time. And you know it's one of those moments. Where i think you can have some slow plays when you open ep and face a button. Three debt in particular queens comes to mind. I don't think it'd be flat kings at probably any frequency but queens potentially granted looking at it now. I don't think i should have any check. Raise range on this board regardless of his bet sizing so it's definitely a game of chicken where somebody's trying to win the pot and kind of who wants it more and again. It's a little bit of this lake. I think it's funny. I was shocked and annoyed because like a little bit of this. We both recognize. There's probably some shenanigans going on here and it's a matter of who's able to make it work but the reality is that on his board texture. His range just has such a large advantage that. I shouldn't even be tempting this kind of thing. I mean honestly. Even if i do have it because we're going to face a lot of barrels anyway indeed will to turn the is fifty point. Four bigs now distinct ratio is just zero point seven wound so it wouldn't be unreasonable to see it all go in on the street. The turn comes the two of diamonds so the ordinary king of clubs diamonds. Three two of diamonds. Matt you bet. Fifteen big lines just over thirty percent of the Darah you not having gone for a reasonably large race is on the flop..

There's maybe an arbitrariness to some of the rules that some people might feel are too stringent in different places at different times and again. That's pretty fair.

"Alright Chip Franklin with Ben Foyer from the California appellate Law group. Before we get to the case, you think really needs to be at the top of the list. Ben of this morning, the Supreme Court declined to take up a case of a florist that didn't want to Do a same sex wedding. They allowed the state law to stand and said, Basically, you want to stand business. You gotta you gotta treat everybody does that surprise you? I mean, since Gorsuch earlier on kind of supported gay marriage. Yeah, You know, we have a an interesting do dynamic in the Supreme Court, particularly with the Trump appointees. Donald Trump got three justices on the Supreme Court and replaced, uh to one liberal justice and one moderate justice with two real conservative religious folks. Cavanaugh and Barrett Gorsuch also pretty religious. So a lot of folks I think thought these people were going to come in and they were going to be reactionary conservatives and they were certainly going to be anti gay, right anti gay rights and there certainly are very conservative. In some ways, they're certainly very religiously oriented in some ways, But they haven't been really as sort of antagonistic to the rights of of gay Americans, as I think some people thought they were would be Last term. Remember, Neil Gorsuch wrote an opinion. It wasn't about gay marriage but is about whether the Civil Rights Act from the 19 sixties protects gay employees and transgender employees from being fired on that basis alone. And he said that it does this surprise joined with the Liberals that surprised a lot of folks. Um, this term, just as you just mentioned the court declined to take up a case involving a florist didn't want to do a wedding again, You know, sort of saying, Look, you know they dealt with The wedding cake issue. They basically said, you know, states really have to balance genuinely held religious beliefs against the need to to not have very much discrimination. But by the way, Ben and they left this one stands. But Gorsuch dissented. So that's the weird part, right? He descended in this case today. You know where he supported? That's weird. I don't you know, anyway, what is the case? Yeah, I think of all the stuff that we're looking at right now. What is the one that jumps to mind Is that health care is that gay parents? Is it, uh, you know, qualified immunity. And please, What is the one that because everybody wants to know about guns, But there's really I don't see that anything like that coming down the road. Um there's a big case on guns. Next term That's coming up. That really is going to question They raised the question whether or not you have a right to carry a gun in public, or you need a permit, or you can do without a permit. Um, but that's going to be next term, which starts in October. Um this term, you know, with a new whenever a new justice comes on the court, the court kind of tries to slow its docket down a little bit tries not to take maybe the biggest cases. I think it was especially the case this term because the court really didn't know if they were going to be deciding some crazy election cases. Remember when the court sort of Yeah. Whether you know the term began in October, and you know we did you know, we had things were coming up and and you know, with no one knew what was going to happen in this election. And you know the the ultimately the trumpets folks brought like 60 lawsuits, all of which were complete garbage. I mean, they really had nothing whatsoever behind them factually or legally. And you know the court kind of got lucky and didn't have to decide any of them because the lower courts kind of threw them all out and said their garbage so the Supreme Court could kind of stay above the fray and not get involved. Um, you know, so so that and then Covid has been going on. They really didn't know what kind of cases they were going to be taking up regarding Covid. The Covid situation is one where you really can see a difference in the change from Ruth Bader Ginsburg to Amy Coney Barrett on the court when Ruth Bader Ginsburg Was on the court. There were a number of challenges brought saying, Look, States can't limit religious liberty by keeping churches shut down or limiting the number of people who go to churches and 5 to 4. With John Roberts joining with the Liberals, the court said, you know, no. Look, this is an emergency. You know if the states think that they need to limit how many people can go into a room in a closed space in order to Lock down this pandemic. They can do that, even with churches. When Barrett came on the court, all those cases started going the other way and there, and so now the court has held look. States have very limited ability to shut down or or or even even reduce the attendance at churches, Um, even during the pandemic, even when they think that it's necessary to prevent the pandemic. One really big difference that yes, and that and that, I think is going to play out over time. And religion always seems to float around like you know, like incense. I mean, it always seems to be at the core of a lot of of these issues. But let me ask you real quick about the Arizona at versus a Democratic National Committee. They just, they said, in essence, That Arizona was allowed to do what they did. And when you look closer at it, it looked to me like maybe the the Progressives might have overreacted a little bit because I didn't really I kind of agreed with a little bit of what Alito said it. It didn't seem to me that it was a race issue there. Do you agree? Wow. You know you're you're on record now. Saying that you agreed with a leader alot had I know thing, Chip? That's you know, they're gonna hold that Someone might hold that against you One day. Um, you know, Look, I think this is a really, really interesting question. This case came up based on changes to the law in Arizona before the 2020 election. Arizona prohibited a couple of different, um Very seemingly minor regulations. One was whether you can have people who go and collect all the mail in ballots in a neighborhood and then kind of bring those to the post office or a polling station. They're called ballot harvesters. I think a little bit pejoratively. But those are people say that those are important in minority neighborhoods where people may not easily be able to get to the polls. There was another regulation that said, Look, if you're voting in person, you have to vote at your local precinct. You can't go to another precinct to vote that, you know. And so there's this Voting Rights Act from the 19 sixties, and it was revised in 19 eighties, and there's a law that really was designed to limit state restrictions on Basically black voting now. That, of course, applies to many other minorities. When the law was passed in the South, something like 2% of African Americans were registered to vote. Things like literary tests, poll taxes all of these ways of really trying to prevent minorities from exercising their constitutional right to vote. And so Congress passed these laws. Over time, the Supreme Court, especially as it's turned more conservative in the last, you know, 10 or 15 years has whittled the this law down dramatically in 2013. They removed the requirement that states with histories of racial discrimination had to get clearance in advance from the Justice Department when they want to change the voting laws in a way that reduce may reduce minority participation. The framework basically got rid of that are basically said Congress has to redo it if it wants to keep that rule, and now there are other. There are challenges that are coming after elections, uh to voting changes, and that's what this is about, but that you're right. These were sort of minor seeming regulations, The state said. Look, you know, we want to prevent people from doing fraud. We think there's fraud. There really isn't any evidence of voter fraud in the United States. It's just at least at the pep Yeah, so it's not an effective way to change election outcomes. But the Republicans are really concerned about that. You may remember over the last kind of five years. There's this big push against and for voter I d laws. These are laws that said, Look, if you want to go and vote, you have to bring a state issued. I deal with you and the Progressive said Oh, my God, This is really terrible, A lot of the violation of the Fifth Amendment. Well, I don't know about that. But they said it's Ilana what they said Don't have government government. Yeah, they said it was 14th amendment. I think they were focused on and the, uh the Postwar men's. But they said, Look, you know, it's certainly the violation of the Voting Rights Act because this is designed to limit minority participation, and you know minorities, they said. Don't have Ideas in cities as much Maybe they don't drive and don't trust the government, and this is really just targeted at reducing minority participation..

"Happen. Happens the european poker tour itself was a big enough brand to stand the lead. Everybody knows that the et was run by the way to qualify to get on. Tony were three stars. You know it had been branded poke stars for long long time but the thing is once you get the brand people involved. Bill hicks does a wonderful sketch on marketing. If you haven't seen it just tie pin. Bill hicks in marketing. And it's a. It's a brilliant brilliant sketch which effectively sometimes people in marketing can be a little bit blind. Sometimes i don't see the world the same way that you and i and great shame. Obviously we knew people stars at the time and we had discussions with dementia strong advisor. They they seem to be focused completely on the fact that they didn't like that the word european was in there and that seemed to be the which is ridiculous because it became known as adt didn't necessarily think that meant you had to be from europe to play but It was it was quite there. Were more players coming from america and canada to play in the dt qualified on stars. Obviously before they loved it some of them have never traveled before it was a brilliant tool and it should still be brilliant. Yeah i think it's fair to say that's an endara showed back me up on a lot of people. We knew within stars on it was quite a lot of people merrily pending her blog. Scathing the we were very aware that we're good friends in there who agreed with those seem to be a sort of a top down decision. Sort of a change of direction within maybe the contracts Branding the brand comes first and it. Since you reacting. I felt for my days with the stars. People that jumped at the circuit. A lot of i internal unrest unhappiness with decision but it seemed almost like there were two factions. There were the people who are saying. No this is the future. We were going to be global than the people who are saying. Wait a minute. We have literally after the the best brand. That's out there. We're just going to destroy a makeup. This new one. They off my opinion at the time. I told them multifold I was kind of championed for a to the non-executive jammed for while a bit like old non-executive jam. Nobody really listens to what you have to say. You don't really have any power tool but it was a mistake and it's a shame because i'm not sure the pt will ever recover from that. It's very odd to look at it and see the same logo that i drew on the kitchen table back in two thousand four israel. We'll speaking of mistakes you have said you've blown hot and cold over daniela grinder. Damn the years. Because of his opinions on race you took particular issue quite rightly when stars shafted the supernova. We're going to their folk. The pros and actually i suppose whole rags phase. What is your stunts on race. What do you think is fair in terms of loyalty schemes within these sites question on probably one of those players that never really looked at right not instill probably doesn't just play our because i've never put in the volume of the grind. Will the suk neither leads but obviously when things started to change like that i found it really hard to see how you could just destroy people that had been so loyal to you so many years and had generated so much rate every single year. How you could suddenly move. The goalposts aren't just found that whole time. Really quite disturbing an you get people coming in. And they analyze it and they say well. A problem is cannibalising itself and all the inaugural eastwards going round. And you go will. That's pretty much. What this i mean. That's how this works. That's the game. You can lose their losers in their winners. I think the rate should be as low as it possibly can be for a site to actually make a reasonable profit. I think sites really need to be or should be massive degree. I think you should reward people who loyalty. Who play on your side all the time. You should listen to them. When i was running a tournament i was running the tournament on behalf of the players right because they were paying an entry fee. I think that sites. They need to start to think along the same lines they need to say. Hold on a minute. This is a community of players and they have their money deposited with us. We've run tournaments and cash games all night behalf and they pay us to do if you can just have that mindset than really much more egalitarian. Farah ready really detonates. Make money still has made so much money in such a short period of time you huge amounts of money. And that's when it really wasn't that high. They came fourth or fifth in every single tournament. Laurent to what extent to the pandemic interrupt your five year plan to make the millions to one of the best in the world. Were you in robben co making the progress you anticipated. We were on his completely I feel really really badly for all the dealers out in the world. Nope self-employed dina's what what people been doing for the last year and a half. Utah just horrendous. What's happened. Look we're gonna come back and we're gonna do. This again is going to happen. We're not stall but you asked me about the five year plan and of course from a five year point of view is messed up completely whether we cannot make up to seven year plan. I don't know a lot of it depends on variants loaded. It depends on the different countries. Loaded depends on players and where the players want to travel. Think they probably do. Because i was conceived myself is kind of yardstick plays an i suddenly start to think. I'd actually quite light to go somewhere. I think the hippodrome is actually opening at midnight on may seventeenth so you could feasibly go and play a hand of life poker in london on may seventeenth now. I'm ready to go back to play.

You're not allowed to have a bank account monte taller as a business so i was forever trying to work. At how the hell.

They would just interested in the hotel accommodation and people playing roulette on the tables and people would buy always with cash.

So i decided the best thing to do would be to just put it into squash. Bag stuck a squash rookie in thinking. Nobody's ever going to steal a squash bag because go sweaty squash kit in it and then all the way up to the main casino and just deposited in in my own name in the casino so it was just kept in an accounting demayo name and casino for the first two three years maybe four years dental how play styles deal with it nowadays. Which i'm sure that is probably so quite similar. Because i not allow bank cana suit must be kept on on posted casino but it was crazy. I had a really stupid attitude towards money.

You have to remember the cameras. Just not allowed in casinos sa- trying to persuade pretty much all the european to see that it was a good idea to film poker tournament and it was going to be very good marketing for them. It was very hard. And i think a lot of the issues were around things. Like holding casino. I always wanted to have the mouth to plastics on the ap t but we could never do it because he just went legally allowed to join up and must have flown that every year for about five years. Talk about again and again and again it never happened which was a great shame because it was one of the best tournaments europe Time so initially persuading casinos to sign up so once i managed to get maltin rumsfield. Who was the general manager of the victoria casino to agree to sign up for very small fee. Because that's the other thing. Originally i was hunting modeling the little bit on the wtt game which started the ab fool so in effect. I'm not giving anything away. But in effect you would be asking the casino. Fill out fifty thousand euros to do this. Of course when. I said that he just loved mouth. Russo you junkie on giving fifty thousand years so we kind of went down down down down on. I think to try to get him to sign up. I think eventually sold it to inflect twelve and a half thousand euros now. That's absolutely nothing. Given the amount of money we were spending on the production and the amount of publicity was getting and the fact that they were going to be keeping pretty much all the money but once they signed on i could go to the other venues around europe and get them to come aboard as that old pain together but it was tricky.

Obviously it's much faster the way it spits hands after easter another advantage to using this over say ruining the same as yourself or is it the other way round. It's actually really important to understand that you need to be able to run this intercept that you get a proper understanding. I think there is an advantage to running gerard. Sim problem is a lot of people will make mistakes in the parameters that they run the less they've had ground they can tell. You should burn the pilots and right. It's very important when you're in a sim to have every box ticks so to speak to the the imposition play raise out. Bishop blake and check raise the multiple sizing spending almost bold Three depending on the gopher all options. And if you don't take those boxes than you're gonna kill the soul down particular route softwares idt. I always been very meticulously. You that the attention to detail from like some very top level players have been welcome with in dominant costs. You know the attention to detail is really bad. And also i think what's really good about. The show is that it illustrates to you. Help bake these losses what they are relative to the pump because see on this river like losing six. Big blinds of this part is more than ten of the that's gonna be a blunder to check the sound but a lot of people will just look at these numbers and they understand what they mean. Meanwhile when you actually drew lots and lots of hands and detail you really get a grasp of what the numbers actually mean relatives of the pup and they can really help to shape your thinking in critical way. Well nori at this point. I congratulate commiserate with our guest on how much money they want lost. Since this is a hand. I guess i can truly stay detached from the outcome. I am so grateful for you coming on today to discuss this assassinating Give us your extremely clear. Top rosettes very obvious. Why dominic anco value your impulse and why. I'm sure they will be very fortunate to have you as a partner in the coming weeks and he will thank you. Thank you very much. How many guys. It's been a pleasure. We're joined now by a poker player. Tv director and the creator of the european poker tour. He's the winner of the poker million came second in the wap ten k. Heads up event in two thousand nine hundred and two thousand ten. He defeated noon Heads up to win season nine of late night. Poker in two thousand nine hundred ninety came fifth in the party. Poker millions online. For eight hundred seventy k. With track results dating all the way back to one thousand nine hundred nine. He has two point nine million in live tournament winnings he is the president of party. Poker life is john duffy. John welcome very much. A hell of an introduction. Will you earned all of those words at some point over all of those years. So that's only fair and let me go back actually to the year two times that crazy results on the isle of man coverage of the final table drew a reported thirty million viewers. That's sort of hard to fathom these days with poker being so nisha and mostly on twitch and other streaming services. I think they're actually have quite a few questions on this general topic because i think it's the perfect overlap of your two worlds firstly back in two thousand. And what do you think poker's initial appeal to someone who hadn't played or watched. What made them tune in curiosity. I think on the characters as well lot people had seen like tokyo on british television. But when it comes to the thirty million worldwide year she. I think people were fascinated by a game of cards. That could win a million pounds first prize. Once you had the under the table camera it became very good television. I it's interesting because often when people cover sorta poker explosion in it's like it all started with moneymaker The moneymaker boom and that it almost taken exists before which is quite an american perspective. I think certain non. Uk perspective the poker boom. He really did start around then with the tv coverage is too. it's getting turkey million viewers. I actually had the pleasure of playing with you our table and utilities rather amusingly that the style of play that you start to stumble into when you were playing on tv. I had more to do with your understanding of what made for good. Tv raw than necessarily while was good. Critique twitter about thou is true. I mean my journey to the isle on the million was an interesting on. Didn't have much money didn't send enough money to play an seven thousand. Buy in tournaments so really the ago. Go with very strange. Because i played in smaller tournaments at the vic the week before and i came to when like ten thousand and so i decided to use seven of that. Tend to dump play in man because i just felt very I didn't really know whether playing well. But then but anyway i was convinced i was going to win so i got on a plane shot. My wife said look. There's no way you're gonna win. It's complete waste money. He doesn't know what you're doing. you're insane. We went out for dinner with a friend of ours. Luckily she said you gotta go. You know if you think you're gonna win. You must go. So i did. But when i got that i just played incredibly solid for a long time but when we got to the final table after about sort of ten hands we haven't seen a flop and i thought this must be really really boring for the views so i said to myself right. You must call the next pope. Did tony bloom. I remember raised king tunnels and it came ice high. And then he he say that for some reason within me i just knew he didn't have an ice and i decided to move in a which point over three but once i've done it once. I realized that she that was exciting. You know it was really good at doing. I did about four times. The results of that with nothing. I had nothing never even had a hand during the whole fine apart from pera tens and then the one time that i need to get lucky against the dobson. I did get lucky. But it's really. I was directing the show rather than that. She playing in a. That's obviously you not only won the tournament but you helped greatly making it's entertaining tv so inadvertently or maybe advertently kicking off the boom in response to davis question. You mentioned demand. Enticements where back. Then you think those same enticements exists are has the appeared of the game two would be participants changed in the last twenty years. I think he's changed dramatically. I think they with fall too much poker on television because it was all advertiser funded in all polka site. So the gambling science betting size realized that they were getting very good coverage for the dollar spent and really because of the travel channel and they'd seen what had happened the party poker and everybody thought well as an late lab is brilliant. brilliant model. But what happened is over. The course of about three or four five years is just got too much. It just became crazy and i think even broadcast got little bit fed up the fact that the viewing figures going down down down even though the program costing them anything. I think it was inevitable that there was going to be a standalone specialists streaming platform. Like poke ago. I mean it had to happen on a subscription basis but. I do think people what she tom. Terrell through television anymore. I think people are interested. That million pen score was obviously a big moment. You outlasted final table. That included barny boatman. Toni blum in an interview with the guardian right. After that result. You said i was quite pleased. When barney got knocked. I know he's gonna tell on me. And i have to put in a bit of work to find out what it is. Did you ever find out what it was a really good might see what. Tell me. I think i've got some good news because i spoke to arne ahead of this interview and i said what was it. Barney and barney rather Heads i realized he was playing.

Ian who dug deep into his pocket to make a huge contribution to this yet real feel-good story here absolute love uni but open was won by someone idea that one nearly but open. We haven't seen any brags on social media but someone winning almost fifty seven thousand euros so we had no idea when arguing about open money because obviously we have just been very fortunate to know the winners of all. The previous one were carried out online. We hit max silvery apiece. Jamie nixon heads-up we had portico. Neil win when anyone a second one and then are good. dominic nici wound. So we had high hopes for marcus prince and yourself who were still there with ten left was you fell in place. I don't know if you wanna go into any more detail on. I think marcus came seventy came into the day to chip leader enforcing he couldn't cloud so yes. We are not within anonymous winner of unique open online yet. I candidate to second. Last in chips are should be happy with a tenth place. Finish a tenth place finish. No one's ever blazer temple as that's number Plays look at the leaderboard. And i only lost by thirty points. I think if i'd won one more flip in any of my final table runs two table runs than i think. Reportedly could've ended up putting on but that's how it is. There's no might be in out. We just sells often try again next time. Just have to try again and you know at least you had a good mon hair. No seriously i have to say that your play throughout this leaderboard was fantastic. Actually darrow. Carney has been very complimentary. Better game something. He almost never is so it must be doing allow rights. I know he was making some final tables with you along the way in that series so congrats to the both of you. Actually i know darah Place quite well to in. It was a fun room. Okay well with that. Thank you so much any better too for strategy this week we are joined by one of the best online players in the uk and he will be helping us with a hand plucked from the streets. Do is of course. The poker training app created by dominic nature. And marcus prince. Back in two thousand and nineteen darren. I have both been using syndicate but apart from dumb himself. Nobody has probably played on it. More than i am about to introduce. Last summer he came second in a duty recipe event online. He is known as bowie effect. He is andy wilson andy. Welcome the show guys. I'm really looking forward to diving into the thing. That's very interesting. Well it certainly is any important things off. What is it about that speaks to you. And the way you specifically like to learn. While i think i would take all way back to Came across the opposite says like twenty nine t. I was kind of rough. I was ruining sims but there wasn't really the direction i was thinking like was good with. My hand was within the box right. I was looking outside the box. To look at a one of the patents. Going on in the hands. You'll playing. And i think is absolutely amazing Just kind of exploring all the options that are on the table on lots of different bolts despite drilling hans. Looking at the ranges i think is paramount's really you'll development supply and really increasing that win right and it's just been about a springboard outside metro by completely yeah via social media. It certainly strikes me that you are one of the most vocal users of the app. You obviously make some content or rounded. I believe you are in the process of formalizing that partnership shall we say with yes so for quite a long time. I've had like involved but stream randomly on the Just have a few beers. I'll pull up in being the cello. Plays like two or three hours to see that. Having some drinks talk about spots like we'll go for plenty of different spots and Yeah it comes to the point now. I've been approached to make some concept for the they finally decided to bring me on. So i can't really wait. It's gonna be good breeding. Still well-deserved well to the hand. This is a single race pass button versus big blind. Sixty big lines deep. Our computer opponent has two point two x from the button and we have called in the big blind with six two of diamonds. The flop comes ten of spades five of diamonds three diamonds. The action check that four point four big blinds into a pot of five point. Eight big blinds. That's about seventy five percent and with a good shot straight flush. Draw we call. Darren going to bring you in at this point a boon open versus a big blind. Defend our two very wide ranges squaring off for that reason. Kenna lead ever be considered in this. It's two very wide ranges but the ranges are different in the sense that the button still has all of his strongest times which raises on his presumably missing some weeks tons which he might fold defender has more of a condensed range in the sense that he's missing the top hands with three bash. He's also missing some that he would just fold but his In those spots when you see leads. They're usually on low. Cardboard were straights or possible. So typically like seven high void six boards in situations where the pre razor doesn't have all said the also combos. Let's say seven five three if the button isn't raising six four off but the defenders calling all of his six four ostensibly on board. The defender actually has an offshoot advantage in the sense that he is far more straights. So in those situations do sometimes see celebrates advocating leads because when you have the straight you obviously want to lead you. Don't want to risk getting check behind but because you can also have the straight getler types of hands. This board is not really like that. There are no immediate straits possible. So i wouldn't expect there to be leading range. Yeah it is worth noting here that leading for around one third pop loose only point one of the big blind and his only regarded by the app as a small mistake. But you're absolutely right. It is a pure check and the after the computer bets. Four point four biggs. You're given four options to fold to call to raise to thirteen point. Nine bigs or to go all in calling is obviously our the question shoving forces are opponent only call with strong hands that have clipping at best. We called. I think a lot of players. Listening would play as a semi bluff raise. Why would that be a mistake. Firstly we've got to go back to the false strategy being implements about about right Check to see to despite the rangers are very wide there so there was quite a lot of symmetry of the gods like parents. Such obviously Advantage is going to be over pattern. Megyn potentially the strongest toll-free concede like big blind. Might find some strong Sometimes there's an upset to the problem is when you face the big bet. No the the button kind of facing a much different range. So if we say facing a small enough i facing a small the buttons of it more incentivized for his five accent. Naira bunch like some of the back bills spades nine. Cold check race Things just pushing cotija. The strongest is. The problem is making some big bets. Is that if the region is leveraging. Is something like jackson queens. So that's still vulnerable to the biggest 'cause peeling off on that trying to get as much money in now against the ten fold changes as possible. Conversely we also have a ten to king hunslet really driving in a lot of money out on apple incredibly dynamic but obviously has good. Change a bunch on this. Both the problem is what you start raising this law deciding. Firstly you'll go very frequently and secondly just going to condense the imposition continues to just the stronger flushed shows that might be enough set to value the butts in house and also at the same time is also going to have the option to free Essentially jammed the like naked jackson of diamond offsets. The you with. John lewis the button. You know some the bushels really in a lot of trouble integrating alison to turn. The is fourteen point seven big blinds and it comes the kind of club so the board now reads ten of spades fight of diamonds three diamonds. Ten of clubs. We check the computer bets. Thirteen point eight big blinds. That's ninety four percents of toss and again we call and this is a street where we see some mixing. Your check is good. Petillo says that leading for thirty percent. Eight percent of the time is also okay. This is a question. We get asked an awful lot. Actually when peo- or in this case advocates for small amount of mixing is it similar to treat ninety-two percent check as a hundred.

"Good. Have you along Chip Franklin with you? We are counting the days down until Joe Biden is sworn in as the 46, president of the United States. Actually, he's won so many of these court cases and elections probably like the 95th president, United States Andhra ump again, you know, has be grudgingly admitted that he lost. But the real key here in the real question here is is. What do we do in the interim? Now we're gonna impeach him tomorrow and there's no doubt he deserves to be impeached and removed from office. The question is, if we impeach and we don't get the vote in the Senate on, we have to wait until you know it's the 50 50 Senate. And then of course we still won't you know if we can't get the 67 votes Is it worth it to impeach? I don't have a problem with impeaching him there, I would. I would also like to see Article three of the 14th amendment imposed where both houses vote and say he can never run for federal office again. I like that. I think that the you know, I don't think I hope that pants. Um won't pardon him. And that he'll pardon himself. And then we could you know, that won't last because I don't think the Constitution allows you to pardon yourself. It says Grant apart, which means that somebody has to request it, and that's a third person. You can't request it and grant to to yourself. It's not in the language of the Constitution. Let me go Toe Marlin in San Francisco. Marlon, what do we do here, man? Well, First of all, I wouldn't make a statement coming here. Do you remember in 2016? When Trump won the election, the people invoke the protests. All right. 2021 Trump invoke the protest. So there's a big difference. One is violent. Young is not a spar. As for the trump to to be a peach, I think there will be a 67% chance that he will be impeached after he removed from the office after January 20 minutes, he's gonna be impeached tomorrow. But you're talking about convicted conviction is what you're talking about, Right, man. He'll probably be convicted after the 20th of January. Well, you're bigger optimist me and thank you, but I don't. I don't think that's gonna happen..
