A highlight from Crypto Venture Funding is Down; But Bitcoin Building Continues
"Welcome back to The Breakdown with me, NLW. It's a daily podcast on macro, Bitcoin, and the big picture power shifts remaking our world. What's going on, guys? It is Sunday, September 17th, and that means it's time for Long Read Sunday. Before we get into that, however, if you are enjoying The Breakdown, please go subscribe to it, give it a rating, give it a review, or if you want to dive deeper into the conversation, come join us on the Breakers Discord. You can find a link in the show notes or go to bit .ly slash breakdown pod. Hello, friends. Happy Sunday. Today, we are reading parts of two pieces which on the surface aren't really about the same thing, but which I think have more in common than it might seem, as I will try to prove to you by the end of this conversation. The first piece is by L. Asher Corson, a partner at UTXO Management and was originally published in Bitcoin Magazine. The piece is titled A Bitcoin Maximalist's Ode to Ordinals. Al Asher writes, As a Bitcoin maximalist, I love ordinals. Other maximalists should also consider loving ordinals as they demonstrate Bitcoin superiority in ways not previously possible. Ordinals enable functionalities that undermine the need for other blockchains to even exist. The use cases that were demonstrated on other blockchains are now possible natively on Bitcoin. Despite Bitcoin's strengthening position, some self -proclaimed maximalists on X, formerly Twitter, bizarrely celebrated decreased network fees and declared ordinals have failed. This seemingly implies that Bitcoin might somehow benefit from a failure of the ordinals protocol and lower minor earnings. But ordinals haven't failed, and the interest isn't nearly over. To the contrary, trading volume across digital artifacts, unique satoshis, and BRC20 tokens has been historic. According to Cryptoslam, which tracks on -chain NFT volume, ordinals have done over $500 million of trading volume since they were launched at the beginning of 2023. Despite volume and prices being down currently, investors in the ecosystem are writing big checks to ordinals companies. X -verse in ordinals wallet just raised $5 million on a $50 million valuation from some of the most sophisticated investors in the ecosystem. It's far more likely we are at the beginning of this phenomenon than the end. Now, from there, the author goes into a little bit of a description about what ordinals actually are, which we will skip for the purposes of this piece, just because that's obviously something that we've covered here on the show, or if you need a refresher, you can go check out on Bitcoin builders. Continuing, however, they write, Bitcoin maximalists understand that there have never been serious contenders to replace Bitcoin as digital money. Absolute digital scarcity is unlikely to be discovered again because the circumstances surrounding Bitcoin's creation were so unique, in part because today's government understands the risks of letting a decentralized network grow too large and they won't let it happen again. On the other hand, viable altcoin use cases are related to features that Bitcoin couldn't previously support. Some of the use cases that the market has indisputably embraced include decentralized trading, NFTs, stablecoins, capital formation, borrowing and lending, and on -chain leverage. From there, the author goes on to share numbers from DEXs, from NFT trading, that reinforce their point that, like them or not, the market has validated these things as uses of digital assets that people really like. Indeed they write, Although many don't like it, these use cases will exist somewhere because the market has an appetite for them. My strong preference is that they exist primarily on Bitcoin and not on other chains. Ordinals have the potential to not only enable these use cases to be built natively on Bitcoin, but also to surpass their altcoin versions in terms of implementation. These would be better built on Bitcoin because the protocol itself is more decentralized and secure than altcoins. Bitcoin is the largest market cap compared to all the other chains that can support the development of these use cases. But also better because these use cases will be tailored to the Bitcoin community and will therefore embody Bitcoin ideals of decentralization, immutability, and permissionlessness. The author then quotes Danny Hoop describing the properties of a digital artifact. This is from July of this year. Danny tweets, A digital artifact has these properties. 1. They can be owned. 2. They are complete without off -chain pointers. 3. They are permissionless. 4. They are uncensorable. 5. They are immutable. Almost all Ethereum NFTs do not satisfy all five of these. In particular, most Ethereum NFTs use off -chain pointers, and even for the few that do not, some of them are not immutable and can be changed by the creator. L. Asher continues, Imagine a piece of digital art worth $1 million. Or imagine politically sensitive information like classified documents that detail government atrocities. Should these valuable or sensitive assets be distributed using technology that can easily disappear or that can be easily changed? The answer is obviously no. It's also somewhat obvious that over time, the best artists, developers, activists and investors will gravitate towards technology with stronger immutability that is capable of protecting their creation, information or investment for hundreds or even thousands of years. In the case of digital art specifically, they will migrate to digital artifacts on Bitcoin that store the actual artwork instead of NFTs that just point to where it's stored on an off -chain server that could go down at any time. The piece concludes, Bitcoin stands atop the world of digital money and the rise of ordinals only cements that standing. OK, so before I get into how this relates to the second piece, let's actually just go read excerpts from that second piece. This one is by Chris Cole Besswick, the founder and managing partner at Transcend Labs, which is a startup accelerator. The piece seemingly combining my daily podcasts in one is AI is Killing Crypto Venture Capital Interest. Now, the TLDR of this piece is exactly what the title says, quote, The venture capital space has lost significant momentum over the last few quarters. Global venture funding is nearly half of what it was last year. Whatever remains of the market is now being directed towards AI funds. AI has become the golden goose for VC firms after the turbulence in crypto in the last year. Now, Chris's first discussion is about just the shift in VC in general. He writes, Although AI has picked up pace, the VC market is nowhere close to where it was in 21 and 22. With higher interest rates and a sustained supply chain shortage, the global market is an ideal. In my field of startup incubation, I've experienced the shift firsthand. Back in 2020 and 2021, investors were much more likely to fund lofty ideas with very little supporting evidence. But today, even the most promising startups have a hard time gaining the attention of top VCs. According to Crunchbase, global venture funding in Q2 fell 49 % compared to the second quarter of 2022. The overall deal volume has also decreased significantly by 37%. Now, as Chris points out, the big reason for this is macro. We are living through the transition of a zero or near zero interest rate world to a world of 5, 6, 7 % interest rates. The net impact of that is that capital that previously had to flow to more exotic and risky parts of the market, private equity, venture capital, just to get yield in a zero interest rate world, now doesn't have to do that. It doesn't have to take on the same sort of risk. And so money is being withdrawn from the venture ecosystem and put to work in other places. I was myself at a venture firm for a while in the teens in San Francisco. It was remarkable the extent to which the venture capital industry didn't really understand or didn't seem to understand or at least didn't talk about how much of what was going on in our little corner of South Park was actually dictated by what was going on in the halls of the Fed. But to the extent that people didn't realize that, they are learning that lesson acutely now. And in that environment, where there isn't necessarily a next big fund to raise, VC habits aren't changing. necessarily Kevin Colleran, a co -founder at Slow Ventures, said, I haven't written any checks in the past 18 months. I have 30 portfolio companies that I need to help figure out how to survive. There is no point for me to add to the misery. Still, as Chris writes, quote, for crypto, the situation is worse. The total value of deals in Q2 of this year was $2 .34 billion compared to $12 .14 billion a year ago. So what caused this collapse? After a hype -fueled bull run starting in 2020, Chris writes, a slew of disastrous events discouraged even the most pro -crypto VCs. Now of course, Chris rightly points to the fall of SPF and FTX as the most significant factor. He writes, the FTX fiasco destroyed whatever investor confidence was left in the crypto industry, resulting in major investors moving away to greener pastures. Big VCs like Sequoia and investor in FTX are slashing their crypto funds. Now it should be noted that Sequoia had a super weird deal with SAM, where they invested in FTX, and inversely, SAM invested as an LP in them, which doesn't undermine Chris's point. In fact, it validates it that the weird things that were happening in the previous era are simply no longer happening anymore. At the same time, Chris points out that the other thing that happened in November of 2022 outside of FTX's collapse was the launch of ChatGPT. He writes, the AI dominance started the same month FTX collapsed, filling the vacuum created in the market. Since then, AI has been unstoppable. Chris then recounts a number of more personal examples of where he's seen VCs turn away from crypto and towards AI, and how crypto projects have tried to incorporate AI to try to be on trend. He also points out that while sometimes that works and integrating AI actually strengthens the project, many times it doesn't. He concludes, so is there a way out for crypto founders? Of course there is. Unlike mainstream AI, which isn't even a year old, crypto has been present for more than a decade. Thanks to the cyclical movement of the crypto economy, we can confidently predict more innovation in investor interest as the bear market ends. Lower interest rates, globalized crypto regulation, Bitcoin ETF approvals, and more TradFi involvement in crypto could all reignite VC flows. Okay, so here's why I wanted to connect the dots between this piece and the ordinals piece. It is very easy to look at overall statistics and see capital flowing into crypto being down as an inherently bad thing. Now certainly, anyone who has invested in this space should want great projects to have access to aligned capital. Capital that shares long term vision and wants to support those companies through ups and downs. The reality is, a huge, huge amount of the capital that flowed into crypto and indeed that flows into crypto at every cycle peak was wildly misaligned, wildly unproductive. Much of it was just arbitrage, taking advantage of tokens to make money faster than traditional venture capital otherwise would. This isn't to say that bull market funding didn't fund great projects too, it's just to point out that the more capital sloshing around there is, the less of a quality barrier there's going to be. We are now in a very different, much more brutal environment, one where it's going to take a lot more to peel venture capital dollars away from investors. The downside of that is that some projects that would otherwise have been great will simply not be funded. The upside is that the projects that do get funded and that do make it through this are likely to be much stronger on average than those that came out of the top of the bull market. What's more, and this is the reason that I wanted to put the ordinals piece alongside this, there is no law that says that innovation has to come from venture capital. As trite as it is to say, one project which never received any VC funding was, of course, Bitcoin itself. Yes, our author from the first piece pointed out that some ordinals projects have been able to get VC funding because of the excitement around them, but the vast majority of people that are hacking on ordinals, experimenting with it, aren't doing so with VC money backing them. They're doing it because the protocol is exciting to them because it opens up new opportunities. Whatever one thinks of ordinals, it is exemplary of what's going to come out of this bear market and the VC drought, which is interesting things that create real and new and differentiated value that people decide are worth working on, even if they're not able to get big venture capital checks to do so. I don't want to undermine how hard it is to be in this type of environment, especially in one where there's been such a big shift and where many startups are and will die because of it. But there's a lot of good on the other side too, and a lot to look forward to in the strength that comes from going through this type of environment. Anyways, guys, that is going to do it for this week's LRS. Hope you enjoyed it. Thanks once again to these authors for their great pieces, and until next time, be safe and take care of each other. Peace.

All right, I want to talk about Chris herring's favorite team, the New York Knicks, they are surging right now. Winners of 9 in a row, they are sitting in the number 5 seed at the moment in the Eastern Conference. They just won a thriller in Boston a couple of days ago, being the Celtics in double overtime, manual quickly, a tour de force in that game. Just a ridiculous performance by Emmanuel quickly. The Knicks are in, I believe, as we speak, the top 5 or 6 in offensive rating, they are top 15 in defensive rating, they're playing with confidence, they have all stars and Jalen Brunson and Julius Randle, Julius Randle rather Dylan Brunson on that level. I guess the question I'm going to ask you herring is that two years ago we kind of saw this, right? We saw a great Knicks regular season team. Is this team different? Does this team have playoff success potential or at least more playoff success potential than the team we saw a couple of years ago? Yes, just to put it bluntly, yes. I think two things. One, yes, they are not an elite team defensively on paper. They are a lot more formidable when Mitchell Robinson is there. And he missed a lot of time and they were playing 500 ball. During the time he was out, which, you know, for them is not bad, but they are an elite team, defensively, especially now with Josh Hart. They've got so many wings they can throw out there. That are disruptive. They've got everybody kind of playing on a string, playing hard. Was a sneaky good pickup. Josh Hart. Thank you. He was and to Chris point. I don't give a damn the Knicks win, lose what have you. But I do pay more attention to them just by having covered them before. I follow so many Knicks fans who were kind of like angry that the Knicks were giving up on reddish, angry that they're giving up first to get Josh Hart, and I was like, have you watched him play? Like the team struggled, particularly with Mitchell Robinson was out with rebounding. Josh Hart is great at rebounding. He's great and transition. He was one of the best single transition players in the league, just coast to coast. He's a guy that hustles like he's Tom thibodeau's fever dream. Like he's perfect for them. And that's even if he's not shooting well, he has a role on that team. Not to mention that I think advertently inadvertently he's someone that went RJ Barrett is shooting you out of a game that you can plug in. And it puts pressure on RJ Barrett that he doesn't just have carte blanche to shoot poorly to not play with effort. It is a great pickup for them. And so I think the addition of him and their rotation, Quentin Grimes has obviously been there. It also puts pressure on him from time to time when he's not playing well. You don't have to use Barrett, who was shot poorly at times, but has been okay lately. And, you know, to the other part of Chris's question, do they have more of a ceiling than last time, yeah, they have a point guard now. They don't have to rely on Derek rose playing 35 minutes in a playoff game off the bench or having to start him all of a sudden when he's come off the bent all season because you have Alfred Peyton as your point guard. So Jalen Brunson, it goes without saying that he's a guy that can go out and get you 40 if he has to. And that they're also winning games without him. They're beating elite teams without him or at least the Celtics without him the other night because Emmanuel quickly might be the 6th man of the year this year. So there's no question in my mind there are better team there a little bit more experience. Julius Randle looks far more comfortable and you don't have to rely on him to do everything the way that you were trying to do the last time, which that, you know, as much as I love Brunson, the big question is, how does Randall do? Because he looked totally overmatched when they played Atlanta a couple of years ago on that stage. He wasn't ready. He wasn't able to kind of take on the double teams. He wasn't making the right decisions when he was doubled. Having Brunson there is a guy that can dictate a lot of that dictate where the ball goes and also having more shooters than they had on that roster. I think we'll take them a lot further in addition to Mitchell Robinson if he stays healthy. They are scary. The Knicks are good. First of all, just incredibly fun to watch. Especially the last couple months, you know, I do the entertainment rankings for a side before the year every year. And I always put the Knicks low because they always play these grind out games, the offense generally under tibs has not been very good. It's been a complete flip of the script this year where they have a really good and fun offense. You mentioned Julius Randle can you hold up? Like oh, Julius Randle and apology because I thought the season he had a couple years ago when they made the playoffs when they had the first constraint against the hawks. I thought it was a little bit of a fluke. I'm like, this guy had 9 months off. Some players are coming back. After 70 days, the Knicks had all this time and they make a run, you know, remember the Celtics get swept the first round that you're like, the heat got swept in the first round. They were the Conference Finals here before. It felt like a weird season. Then last year he comes back down to earth, but we're seeing now a team that's built so well around its two best players and Brunson and Randall. That they're in much better positions to thrive. I mean, Randall has turned into one of the best isolation players in the NBA, his three point percentage is way up.

"So I guess that's a long way of saying that in my mind, in order for draymond green to get that contract extension, he craves. He's going to have to play at the highest of levels. He is going to have to prove that or at least make it compelling the case that this team can't win without him, because if that doesn't happen, I can see the worst Santa. Look, you want to opt in, great. We'll welcome you back with open arms, but a contract extension, at least not the one that kind of one you're looking for is just not coming. Yeah, just to give a little bit more context here to give people an idea. You guys mentioned next season Tremont green has a player option for about 27 and a half $1 million. Steph Curry and clay Thompson are combined to make, I believe, $95 million next season. That doesn't factor in Jordan Poole is going to get a contract probably starting around $30 million a year. Andrew Wiggins contract is also up. He's making $33 million this year. It's hard to see him taking a pay cut after how integral he was to the title run. I mean, just doing some back of the napkin math. I mean, they're looking at nearly a $160 million in salaries. And then Rohan, you're inching towards James weisman territory too, like he's not there yet, but he's a couple of years away. And. He looked really good during stretches and preseason. He continues to take this game to that level. He's going to be a guy commanding a big salary too. Absolutely, yeah, but weissman's deal is up next year. They're going to have one of the most expensive rosters. And I think to their ownership's credit, they've been willing to spend, but you have to wonder how much the appetite is for them to continue to go into luxury acts when, and we haven't even talked about clay. If he's not clay, he's going into next year is his last year. They have a pseudo replacement waiting in the wings in Jordan Poole. Harry, let me go to you, how valuable is the version of draymond we saw in the playoffs, and he had some great moments in the finals, some low moments, is that something they could get from a kamina. Is that something they could get from a wise and how valuable do you think the current version of draymond still is the warriors? It's like a light that flickers a little bit. In the sense that it's not always going to work, but you might really like the design of the light, but the thought is that you could always go get another bulb. Maybe you can't find an exact one, but you can, I don't know, this analogy might not be as good as what I thought. But my point is that draymond, I think Chris point from a moment ago is really smart that if you get another year with him because he opts in, it buys you a little bit more time to try to find a replacement. Whether that's internally, whether it's kind of by committee, if it's because you can find somebody in the draft, which granted they might not be producing it, it draymond's level defensively right away.

And this could be it could have been a total fluke. I haven't been there since. Tell me if this is normal if I'm interpreting it wrong. Yeah. So I was on, I'm gonna say it like a total hick. Champ C Lizzie? Well. Thank you. And I was walking with a friend and one guy grabbed my arm and pulled me backward and another guy grabbed her arm and pulled her backward away from each other. And it was really aggressive and it was scary. And I ripped my arm out from him and I kind of ran away and she did the same thing and we both ran to each other. So I don't know if they were going to abduct us. I don't know if they were trying to be sexual and hit on us. I have no idea what was happening. Well, that's to the language bad intention. Or something, not trying to. Okay. So I wasn't sure that was sexual. Or if that was like thugs. Okay. Sorry it happened to you. And appropriate. But that could happen anywhere in any way. Okay. Second thing that happened. Loved loved Paris, but two really bad things happened. So that was one thing. And I was like, and I really had no idea how to interpret it. Second thing we were having dinner and it was a group of girls. I was over there with this dance dance company I was with. So there was a group of girls. We spoke no French.

I'm not doing anything. I don't think you're cute. And I think he interpreted that in a way that I was flirting with him. And I asked where the bathroom was. And I'm not exaggerating. It was downstairs. It was like a small little bistro. It was in the restaurant downstairs, of course, was in the restaurant. He's like on the street corner. So it was in the restaurant downstairs down these kind of like windy stairs. And he was like, I'll show you or something like that. So he basically pulled me again like kind of grabbed my arm. I was like, here we go again. What is going on? And he pulled me into a bathroom stall. And my friend, luckily, saw him kind of pulling me and she came in behind me and pushed him and pulled me out of the bathroom stall. And so I was like, I don't know what is going on. But I guess I meant to be raped or something. This is my really fun to tug. Yeah. Exactly. And we were like, get away, and then we had because we were on the dance company. And so our quote unquote chaperones are the women that were our teachers were down the street and another restaurant. We ran to them. And we were like, oh, Kristen was almost like sexually assaulted or something. But I wasn't, and then we didn't report it or anything like that was just weird. We paid and left. But interpret that for me. This meant that he interpret that as I was flirting with him and it was time to do it or it's another thug. It's something that I'm very sorry it happened. It's not. That's not normal. There's a big difference between, I would say the French natural way of maybe flirting and do like this than anything that involve from a violence or threat of any kind. I have a very strong feminist mother who believes in the quality of this, but still all that happened to you is an acceptable and has nothing to do with the French. Whatsoever. Yeah. Can I hear some examples of ways that the French are romantic? In terms of it's interesting. Usually we grab the forearm. All what Chris described as the rules of don't are the dos in Paris. You pick up a woman on the first date with your car at her house. You after the date you sent a text to something that the best time and a picture of the data something. And she will answer. And then if you like the girl, if you want to impress her, you know, a couple of roses are one rows, delivered the next day will go to her heart. You write something with your handwriting note still works. So it's hard to get even she likes you, she doesn't, but once the girl likes you, she does she's not afraid of you. While here at the Chris point, which I agree 100%, there is this fear factor between men and women where it's uncomfortable for both for a long time. And that's because I don't know what happened between the two where everybody's a friend of each other. Really? People get hurt a lot. That's where all of your people. We got a guest on our show recently, Francois. Who was talking about a bad breakup that she had just gone through and then about the boundaries that she now has in place and enlisting how hard a guy has to work to have her trust him. Absolutely. I couldn't believe the hoops. So men jump through. You're a woman. Yes. When are you rules? Well, to gain the trust from you, a man has to do. I married. For a man to gain trust. You know, I am equally just as wary of me. I've also been burned in the past by other men by my men in business and men on a sexual level. Really? Yeah, so I'm from Canada. So I had to adjust myself when I came over here. I had to tone my flirting down and I had to put my walls up when I moved on. But I also was 23 when I moved here, so I don't know if that happened to go along with my age. But there's a very different world in the United States. People drink for sport over here. I know. They're much more guarded. They're more aggressive. They're, you know, it's crazy. I went to a tailgate game when I arrived in Cleveland with the browns. And I have never been to anything in my life. And I thought I arrived in the wildest world ever. It was 9 a.m. in January, but still you got hundreds of people. Barbecue out of your car. And it's 0°. No, so it was extremely and talk about the floating going on. I mean, I live in the morning. Yeah. I won't be graphic, but I was like, but what is going on? Yeah. So let me ask you, then what are the rules for a guys to gain your trust, Christine? This is kind of this is like a bullshit thing to say for because guys will go, what does that even mean? But it's like a thing since 6th sense. Intuition. Intuition. Consistent in being responsive and reliable, but not needy. So does that make sense what I'm saying? So when I met my husband, I was blown away by him. He opened a car door for me. I never had that done before. He followed up with a text. But does this into the phone when I called? I liked that. Does this confuse men though? Because, for example, we were just saying, we don't like romance kind of scares us sometimes, but do you think then do not, does that mean we don't want men to open the door? Is that how you interpret it? I can't still. I still can't change who I am and how I was raised. I'll always open the door. I'll always be polite. I'll always walk on the course to side of the road, et cetera. Because that stuff that I like. That doesn't bridge romance for me. That just bridges like respect, respect, politeness, good character. Etiquette. I think women have to almost end this might sound equally as bullshitty. Women almost have to be tricked into romance here. You have like they want it. But you kind of have to trick up. Yeah, you have to sneak it in there. Take it in. It's not something that you give me an example of that..

Esports Match Fixing
"Was an article from abc dot net in australia. And it was east sports regulator says. There's been a very significant upturn. In match-fixing the article goes on to say they quote fanatic. That few sports teams have achieved the the successive fanatic. It sponsor this global brand and supposedly That while the audiences in australia free sports have increased that there are indications that there is a lot of match-fixing going on at tournaments in the country. And you know this is because there's greed. I guess and people are betting under the table. I'm not sure you know the the they talk about how they receive allegations about one hundred of them every single day to this organization called the e sports integrity commission. Or whatever. that's worth i. I don't know william if you've even heard of them but I good name like to be fair. Like i think that's a good name to have for your organization. And i probably know what they do so but just to put that hundred number into context that hundred allegations every day they say if you look at a sport like cricket they have four to six match fixing investigations annually and an in terms of investigations sports. They had fourteen and that was in a span of three months. And so they think there's a lot of match-fixing going on. I'm curious what you guys think of. This is is this just anecdotal and it's people who lost to are complaining like any sports. These are just allegations. I don't know how many of them that are investigated. The turned out to be true. But match-fixing i would argue is easier in east sports than in traditional sports. Do we think it's running rampant. Well actually can. I call it. Can i start with comment. There's actually a really good chat from chris coins in this as i think there's a really strong incentive problem right now which is like if you're a semi professional pro you just don't earn a lot of money and it's such an unveiled marquette. It's super easy to if that article i think if you keep going talks about actually a pro game. Who's betting on himself right. Yeah played semi pro. Ceus go player man. Who was betting on his own matches. yes he claims. I'm betting on myself to win but like you can earn a lot money betting herself better yourself to lose like a good way to do it. Also the article also quotes him. Saying sorry william that he had been offered two thousand dollars to throw matches people. Who are betting on the matches like it actually number just number alone. Two thousand dollars. I think this goes to chris's point. You know as east sports become more professional and the salaries go up. You have more structure. This problem does sort of fix it. Fixed itself need you know Organizations like this sports your integrity commission. You need a gambling operators to be cognizant of this you know the data providers to to flag it when things didn't come up but you know if you're making five million dollars a year someone comes to you and says hey to grand you throw it was mass. You literally laughing. You just don't do it because the numbers it's not work right. So i i do think as professionalized. It's our you know higher. It does take care of itself to some extent You know and we're also talking about. We're going east boards. There's a ton of different we Cra said you know. Some of them are in china. Some of them aren't professional. Is you know when you look at traditional sports. If we were talking about some random soccer he you know in russia. There's probably a lot of fraud that goes on there but we're not talking about. It was look at the. You know the allegory too. Big judicial sources. I let me just push back a bit. Jeff like if you're saying it's a matter of time and growth and growth in the salaries of the players right. wouldn't that also mean there's growth In terms of east sports betting in the volume of bedding and the the dollars that are at stake and things like that and therefore you might get a person who's betting hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars on on key matches who has an incentive now to go to a player and say. Yeah take a dive. Here's a million bucks. The risk of of the players still becomes. It doesn't become worse. Ic- your your point is is well the the point where where i was going with it just initially off when i think chris is pointing is like the high end stuff. There's integrity there's enforcement. It's getting safer but for these semi pro players. You can still bet on them. They're still listed right. You know a lot of places but the incentives are so strongly considered to cheat. Because it's difficult to live off the you know the the unreliable winnings anyway i think said i do think there's a reason why the betting is on the up tickets. The it's a e. Sports is on the uptick right so like you would expect. As more people play the sport more people cheat like it's not shocking right. that's one but two is the incentive to cheat. Have come up because ten years ago. No one would better thing. He sports now all of a sudden. There's betting and stuff like that. So the reality is you have a growing market and a growing bedding market dot. The number of cases of cheating will increase. And i think it's up to the industry to address it right like it's also relatively unaddressed. Problem in the industry. That's the third thing i'd say like there's very limited enforcement so it really like. How do you get caught like like really. How do you get caught if you're playing from home in a match like what somebody's gonna come to your house and
Are we doing enough to prevent the spread of COVID-19?
"Joined by. Dr Ezekiel Emanuel former Obama. White House Health Policy Advisor. He's Vice Provost Global Initiatives University of Pennsylvania and Dr Peter Hotels Dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine Doctor Manual. When we start with you. Where do you see us right now? Are we doing enough in terms of large scale social disruption and changes to slow the transmission of this epidemic? So first of all. I've been saying for several weeks now that it's going to get worse before it gets better. Parsley it's GonNa get worse because we have testing. That's just going to show us how prevalent the illness is. It's also getting worse because we know we have more community acquired infections as I mentioned to someone today. You know one week ago. We weren't even talking about new Rochelle and now new. Rochelle is a major topic in New York. And that's a lockdown and if we focus on new Rochelle without thinking about all the other places that this virus is maybe Washington. Dc maybe the suburbs of Baltimore. Who knows where the problem is? We need a more systematic less uneven response. That has to be pretty uniform. Because just 'cause we're seeing it new Rochelle doesn't mean Rochelle's the only place in New York that Scott and that response does have to include things like much more prevalent testing so we really have a handle on who's got it and who doesn't and a really good model is South Korea if you look at their trends you can see that. They're beginning to bend in South Korea. We also do need to inform people. We use the term social distancing like everyone knows what it means. It's not immediately obvious to people what that entails and how much you need to be separate from people explain to what should people know about but a large part of it. You people have come up with all these numbers no more than one hundred people to meet no more. The issue is density. How close are you to people? How easy is it for the droplets to spread? How much are you sort of packed in light sardines or not and that real? I mean that's a physical thing That is really important and I do think we probably need to educate people to minimize the. They're our contact and to stay home more. You can go out where there's no one else if you're going walking in the woods or something or going to a place where there are other people But I do think Restricting how we move around is going to be important I will note that not every but most of the Ivy League schools now for example colleges mine included. We're going online. The second half of the semester is all going to be online. Students aren't going to be in. Dormitories accepts students. That can go back to their home country and still complete the semester. So you are seeing a lot of action. But it's not concerted and that's what it's not systematic and that's what's bothering me Dr Hotels. We've been checking with you throughout the unfolding of the goal pandemic and I'm curious. Are we learning more about the virus itself about the basics about the transmission rate? Which seems to be maybe lower than at first. We thought the fatality rate the incubation period. Where is our knowledge right now about this so the transmission rate still seems to be? Pretty High Dr Fao. She mentioned. It's probably a significantly higher than the influenza as well as the mortality rate. But the you know just to echo and reinforce some of the things zeke Doctor Emmanuel was was saying we've learned a few things from a recent analysis. My colleague Mark Lipchitz sit at Harvard School of Public Health Chan School of Public Health together with a student a doctoral student. Ruan Lee didn't analysis of the Chinese cities in terms of how severe the epidemic is with the extreme example being Wuhan rare nine thousand people wound up in and severely ill with two thousand in the ICU versus city. Like Long Joe where there was only twenty a big difference right and it looked like it's primarily to do to how quickly you got on top of things after sustained community transmission started. So they let it go for six weeks. Before they implemented aggressive control and testing whereas in Guangzhou were the only at twenty cases one week. What's the lesson learned from the United States We're now about three weeks into this in terms of sustained community transmission. We had our first case of community transmission around the end of April so subtract a week before then. So we're getting to the point where because we're not doing adequate diagnostic testing and implementing those very important control measures. That seek pointed out. We're in a situation. Where we could risk being closer to Wuhan and Guangzhou and and we do we. We can't be there so now is a very critical period over the next couple of weeks where we have to be very aggressive about closing down major venues. We just this Houston. Today with the Rodeo was a tough decision but was the right decision that we're going to have to do this all over the country right now and the reason is this because if we miss that opportunity we then have. Our new problem becomes surge capacity hospitals. Where we're not gonNA have enough beds. We're not GONNA have enough into ventilators. We don't want to go in that direction. So now's now czar. Big Schnauzer going to be our last chance. We've already missed that in over the last few weeks. Can I reemphasize something? Peter says which is so in the entire United States. We have about eight hundred thousand hospital beds a little under eight hundred thousand hospital beds. In the entire United States we have under seventy thousand adult intensive care unit. Beds we have about sixty five thousand ventilators with the strategic supply. I've heard that it goes up slightly under one hundred thousand. That's our maximum capacity in the country at the moment if you imagine that even two percent of the population gets the corona virus and we have about six percent who are seriously. Ill GonNa need a respirator. We've exhausted all that supply. Just for those patients. Forget the heart attack patients. Forget the patients who need it for any other reason and I think what Peter said is exactly right we probably have missed two or three turns over the last few weeks where we could have gotten things down and just focusing on the hot spots. Seattle New Rochelle. I think is not. We need a much more systematic countrywide approach so that we don't overwhelm the healthcare system. Which already you know doesn't have that much search capacity in it. Dr Hotels Final Point to you for people that are watching this I. I've struggled with this for the last three weeks right. Communicating in a way that does not induce catastrophe or panic but also is clear eyed about the risks. And I do think it's worth just going back to the distinction between your individual risk you random American one of three hundred thirty million that you will get very sick and need to be hospitalized or may as life threatening illnesses that individual risk for any given random person is probably low in the grand scheme of things and this systemic risk to the society and to the healthcare system which is extremely high at this moment. Is that a fair way of phrasing. It yeah absolutely and also remember. It's it's all about communicating. What our top priorities are in. This is what I've been disappointed about. We've lost a lot of time because of a blanket statements that are not backed by data saying this is contained. This is this is the cold. This is the flu when in fact we know that there are specific groups that are at high risk including older older individuals those with underlying disabilities and our healthcare workers. And so what I've been looking for is at the White House. Press briefings to say. Look these are four. Bit Concerns Right. These are three or four populations That were concerned about This is a why we need to get on top of this very quickly. And here's what we're doing about it and and historically the American people have responded very well to this They understood this three. Bola Zeka as we say. This is not our first Rodeo so so we know how to respond and we just need that clear kind of concise messaging right now. All right. Just had one thing to Chris. Point which is we also do know the ass for any individual. The risk is low except we do know that there are certain people and Peter Emphasize of those who are over sixty or sixty five those who have chronic illness. They are at high risk and what we have done in. This country is aggregate them in nursing homes. Those are most vulnerable people people in nursing and we really have to social distance. There reduced the number of visitors. Probably two zero. Make sure that people are counting up and taking a donning protective equipment so that we don't have that Patriot play just explode with corona virus like it did in Seattle because almost every one of them is really on the verge just like the cruise ships. Good Point -portant point Zeki Manual. Dr Peter Hotels. Thank you
