"Time he says how he tests? Yeah. Oh, I mean, I don't want to die. But that's a fun game. This is kind of interesting because I have observed this too. There does seem to be increased partisanship over crypto. I would not have said this two years ago. One party was more pro crypto than the other. It seems sort of about even in both almost neutral on it. But that has started to change. What is this tweet that we've pulled up here? Yeah, this is a treat from Dennis Porter who is a bit corner that we've actually had on Bitcoin before. And he tweets out pro crypto and pro Bitcoin Democrats are lining up to voice their opposition to their own party's dance. Democrats are on the verge of driving away their own voters and losing support from this important new voter block. In my opinion, it could cost Democrats a 2024 election. And then there are screenshots of four crypto Twitter personas who are saying that they are perhaps reconsidering their previous democratic base in support of the Republican Party if indeed the Republican candidate was sufficiently pro crypto and I'm sure other facts and circumstances as well. This is someone saying, I have never once voted for Republican president, but is considering this. This is also Chris Bernstein, and we quoted earlier, crypto is going to be an issue for voters in 2024, and already that is a sign of us winning, but I have also never seen the U.S. government be so draconian. In fact, so long as it's not Trump, it may cause me to vote Republican for the first time in my life. This is a very interesting. I know you have a way in on this too. Right here. What's your take on this? Yeah, so I am one of the four people that is being a screenshot and tweeted out by Dennis. And I said, my entire family is Democrat. I was once considered myself a Democrat. And now I kind of consider myself just politically agnostic. Great party. Great, great party. A great way to put it. I was once a Bernie bro because F Hillary, so I'm putting my political opinions out here. Sorry for that. I, too, would vote Republican for the first time given that it is the correct pro crypto candidate. And also the Dems continued on the anti crypto warpath. Since I'm here, grandstanding about my political opinions, I also followed up this tweet with another tweet saying, and that Republican would also have to be pro choice. That's what I believe. And so for me, my personal political beliefs are that I'm almost a single issue voter for crypto. So long as that candidate is not an insane person, I will vote for the pro crypto candidate. It's definitely if it's definitely making you question, right? Previous political beliefs over this one thing and it could start to cost the Democrats. Is that a popular position in your family, David? It is not. And so actually, the growing back to Chris Bernice tweet, I shared Chris Bernstein's tweet with my family chat and because my entire family is pretty thumbs up about Elizabeth Warren. And I just said, hey guys, my entire industry thinks that Elizabeth Warren is super cringe and not treating us with respect. And is actually doing the whole emperors wearing no clothes thing because the way she talks about our industry is coming from a place of completely just misunderstanding and being uninformed about things. And it's making our entire industry not just question her stance and information about crypto. But basically her stance and information about any other industry is kind of like when you understand how the mainstream media reports on crypto and you're like, well, they just got that wrong. And so is that how they report about everything? Because they're getting such a wrong. And so what about everything else? I think that's true. Although I will say one thing is, I think people are inherently skeptical of industry bias, right? Sure. There's big pharma. The gun lobby, all of these things. And big banking and big crypto that could be a thing crypto is not big crypto. But like crypto Bros that sort of thing. To me, this is less about an industry fighting for its ability to exist and survive. Although that's part of it, to me, this goes far deeper than that. This is like a basic American civil liberty to own freaking digital property. American values. This is deep the level of constitutional this is freedom of speech. This is digital civil liberties and to me this is not about one kind of party helping and getting donations from crypto or not or getting the crypto. This is just like, why can't we all rally around this being core to a western classically liberal democracy that embodies human values and translates that for the digital age? That's what crypto is to me. I don't know if that's an effective argument on anyone in your family, but that's certainly what I believe. And this is also increasingly what I think some politicians are giving voice to. So we had Tom emmer on the podcast earlier this week, David. And I know you were on at the beginning, you had some Internet connectivity and then you were not fully established here in Montenegro. Yeah. Dude, you should see how fired up he was. Like the thumbnail, man. Is this a thumbnail? Yes, I think I saw that face. He is so fired up and we talked to him a year ago. So we talked to Tom Emory a year ago and he's pro crypto in this. This time it was a different time, different politician. He clearly thinks that crypto is going to, I don't know, is motivation. But assume he's just kind of a politician going with the votes and that sort of thing. He clearly thinks that this is a cornerstone of his platform and I think David, because he is the whip in the house that is number two, most powerful seat in House of Representatives, I think this could become a platform for Republicans in 20 20 because the Democrats are letting them have it for the Republicans just like this is free real estate. Basically, and somebody's got to go get that cohort of votes and we have got a two party system. So it's going to be their one party the other. And by the way, the more one party embraces it, the more the other party has to be like, we're not those guys. That's just how they stand for that. We don't stand for that. Yeah. So anyway, I don't know how it's all going to unfold. It's really out of this court. It should be a bipartisan, just American issue, but it does seem like the Republicans are kind of making this part of their platform. And we'll see how that carries in 2024. Right. So when I was arguing with my sister, it is perhaps the leader of my family in the pro war inside of things. And she was like, yeah, you crypto Bros. You think you don't need regulation? Like, look what happened to crypto in the last year. I'm like, are you serious? We are begging for regulation. And this is what you're just touting what Elizabeth Warren is saying. She's trying to position us as these rogue shadowy super coders who don't want any regulation. And my response to her is like, no, you're doing the same thing that she is, which is misunderstanding and misrepresenting our industry and casting us off as these Barbarians, crypto, like gunslingers. Anarchists. Please regulate us. Please. You're going to get clipped by this, by the way. Somebody's going to clip that. Please regulate us. David Hoffman. You were saying clarify before you get clipped on what you're actually saying. You can be regulated if you are a centralized entity. If you are a bank, if you have, if you have if somebody deposits trust into you, you are in need of regulation. If you're a decentralized protocol, that is permissionless. And or also aspires to be permissionless and you need a path to become permissionless. I mean, regulation isn't just like clamping down the gates. It's also providing clarity and paths forward for crypto protocols to make sure. Absolutely. Yeah. So Internet, get the full clip, all right? Don't just clip David, saying please regulate us. Oh

"No, so when I think about web three, it's got a lot of different components. It's got finance, as we just talked about NFTs, and another part of the whole ecosystem that hasn't really been I would say nailed is like the identity or the login. I mean, there's wallet connect and a couple kind of clunky clunky ways to associate your identity with a wallet, but do you guys have any sort of preferred partners or any kind of technology that you're looking at that you think makes the user interface of blockchain applications easier? I guess that's kind of the crux of the question. I have a lot of wireframes around this actually kind of my look I've been thinking about it because somebody needs to do it. Yeah, on the identity wallet side, again, it's sort of a resource issue. I think we're relatively early still when it comes to Solana identity, adoption, and that I think one of the biggest pain point right now is the wallet experience, if you ask me. Yeah. They're just so many things that remain painful about it. Totally. And they're just needs to be more development before it can be released smooth. Things like saga, the new solano phone are actually making adoption easier with things like managing your seed phrases. Long term, we need to move away from the idea of addresses, I think, to get mass adoption, it needs to be these idea of identity needs to be more solid, like you said. But I think in a world where things are very decentralized and unlike Ethereum, Solana hasn't really landed on a single ENS like provider. There are some folks who use the salon name service, but it's not nearly as widespread. And so right now, I'd say we're focusing on building the core, there aren't really partners that I'm aware of that are doing it in a way that I think is really widely adopted enough to make sense, but my pipe dream is to be able to focus a little bit more on that side. Do you have a lot of wireframes in that respect? Yeah. So to kind of give an audience of how big the total value lock that I guess orca could have or how much money could really be facilitated on the exchange, do you guys, what's the next step? Are you guys going to be onboarding Bitcoin or real world asset securities? Like Larry Fink just came out and said that he thinks the future of all securities is tokenization. You guys are building a token exchange. Are you guys going to be onboarding real world assets to exchange? What's the grand vision? The grand vision is for orca to be this infrastructure, right? That can power everything from real world assets to game assets to even more peg stablecoins for different real world currencies. The point is not for orca to make those determinations, I think, and I'm also very against paying for trade volume and liquidity in a very inorganic manner. I think rushing these things for marketing purposes is something that, although it's very common in crypto, it goes against my personal values. I think we got to go with the flow in terms of adoption. There are things we can do to help it along. But right now, like I mentioned a few times, I think the technology is just not there yet, right? We've seen incredible gains in the past few years, but things need to be more reliable, smoother, more efficient in order to really be at the level where we can start powering these things at a wide scale. So I think patience is a virtue. Patient is a virtue. And just keep building, and I think the quote is build it, and they will come, right? And here we are talking about building during kind of the heart of a bear market, of course, there's a nice little rally right now in the market, but still things are, you know, there's been a lot of players wiped out economy is in the gutter. And so it's about building quality products, building investing in technology that will power the future and letting the market decide how to use it. I like what you said about, you know, we're going to build this technology that's kind of neutral and it's open-source. People could kind of come and build on it and extend it and I love it. It's great. And it's exactly what we need. And patience is a virtue right now. So Ori, thank you so much for coming on to the podcast. There's a lot of other things that we could kind of go into in terms of NFTs and other DeFi things that get you excited, but maybe a conversation for a different day. But last question for you, before we let you go, I'm curious, who do you look up to in crypto? Is somebody kind of inspired you outside of maybe your cofounder or somebody you work closely with? Anybody who you admired from afar? From afar, I don't know if this is a media distance. I was actually fine, that's fine. Yeah, throw out Chris Bernice, who is one of our placeholder, he just has such a depth of experience from being through all the way from Bitcoin literally writing a book on this stuff through the Ethereum

"Leaving stacks alone. I'm out. I'm not buying it. I do though believe it. There will be some kind of smart contract activity on Bitcoin at some point. And I want to be there when it does, but I'm not buying enough. Of course, that's the first narrative. The second narrative as I said to you for March, oh, and let me just switch off my email, people sending me emails during the show. Okay, let's talk about the second narrative for much. The second narrative for March is around this tweet from Chris Bernice is after almost two years of consolidation. Two years of not doing anything, as you can see, let's quickly go to the eth BTC chart. And just test that Chris knows what he's talking about. So we go to the one we shot. And we go back two years, and you can see that really for two years, the eth BTC narrative done nothing. Nothing. If you would have bought the east against BTC over here, nothing would have happened for two years, but it does look like finally finally finally, we have that little breakout of the trend. Now, that's pretty interesting. The interesting part of it is that why does the eth BTC chalk break out on the same length where we're getting the east Shanghai upgrade? Remember, the charts always preempt the news. And we're getting the eth, Shanghai upgrade. Now, the biggest part of the E China upgrade, which happens sometime in March or April, is that the locked up in the contract that validates the eth will actually be withdrawable. Now they're not all going to be withdrawable all at once. But over time, you will be able to withdraw your eth from the contract. Now, some people think that that's a bad thing, because there are so many states in the contract. In fact, if you go to staking rewards dot com, what you'll see is that right now, there is 200, $29 billion worth of eth staked in the contract, earning 3.71%, not the best return in the world. You can actually get 3.94%. You can actually get better returns investing in one year government buttons. So people think that some people think that this money will be withdrawn and it will hit the market. Other people say, this is a great opportunity. Arenas, yeah, she's present. Iran is the present fantastic I was worried. I've been hearing a lot of stories about what's going on in Ukraine. But arenas here and she's present amazing. Are you going to just say present? We say this out in class, we say present. Okay, so Chris and Sheldon both saw the trend. If you watch Sheldon's show, if you didn't watch Sheldon Shawn, what Sheldon shared good show, he saw the trained crystal the trend does look like it's going to break out. Also the RSI here on eth is completely an oversold territory eth against Bitcoin, right? So it could mean that eth is about to have a run. And if eth has run, it's not going to be a run of just each. It's going to be a run of ease and a whole lot of other tokens. And that's one thing that I saw around. If we get this eth

"There are the crypto VPN and there's an as I said to you guys before. If after all you've heard about Gary gensler and staking and how he's keeping the U.S. out of staking and how he's targeting the centralized takers, but also the decent last day because if you're still operating in crypto without a VPN, if you're just not masking your IP address, if you're not using a VPN today, you shouldn't be here. You shouldn't be watching this because you're going to lose all your money anyway. So what you need to do is sign up for node VPN, protect your IP address, serve completely anonymously, and if you sign up today, you get a gift, but you also protect your crypto for $3 and 35 cents a month. Okay. It's like, you got to do it if you're in crypto. And they're also bringing you these Friday these Friday banter. So support NordVPN. And let them protect you and let them support us as a channel. All right, so we've got a Friday banter trip. I've got three big guests. First of all, we've got Joey who's a regular usher, Joey. Welcome back, my friend. How are you? Good, thanks for having me. Good to see you. And then we've got two new guests who are now part of the banter family. This is their official welcome to the bands FM. They do run the bankless podcast in the banquet shows and for those of you who don't know what bankless is, it is a channel which has amazing amazing amazing content. I really go to them for real deep dive content. No fast, no nothing, just the facts and they're really dive deep into the fact. So we've got Ryan and David from bankless joining us for the first time guys. Welcome. What's up guys? What's up? How's it going? So I don't know if I did the best job pushing bankless. So there is a link to bank list below, but maybe you guys should just give us a little bit of background as to who bank list is. As I said, I love the content. Especially the last couple of weeks I've been addicted to your content. I listened to a podcast that you guys did with anatoly a rat salana, which I think was an unbelievable and believable interview. I did listen to an interview with Chris Bernice, I listened to this one as well. I also listened to one this week around Bitcoin NFTs around the ordinals, Bitcoin entities, which was very, very good.
