Well, folks, as you all may know, Gary Gensler testified before the House Financial Services Committee today. He got grilled. He got a lot of pressure questions and things that he was shaking and unable to answer. It's the same old nonsense. And I'm sure many of you saw the clips, so I'm not going to play a whole bunch of clips for you, but I'm going to give you the big takeaways. What can we expect next? And McHenry, Patrick out of the gate, started grilling Gary Gensler. He asked him, is Bitcoin a security? And Gary was like stumbling, like he couldn't even answer it. And of course, you know, Patrick McHenry was like, what are you doing, man? I'm giving you softball questions. You can't answer me. Is Bitcoin a security? So Gary Gensler continued his clown show. This guy's a scumbag regulator, as I've been saying for a long time, and needs to be fired. But the big takeaway from what Patrick McHenry said, folks, he threatened Gary Gensler and said, don't make me have to send a subpoena. And he highlighted that Gary has not sent documents about FTX. He highlighted Gary's losses in court and much more. So I think the next step, you know, I haven't seen this level of threat about a subpoena from these folks. So I think we're getting there, folks. And I'm actually going to be interviewing Congressman Warren Davidson, who also did a great job grilling Gary tomorrow. And he's going to I'm going to ask him about the subpoena and what are the next steps. And of course, he highlighted his SEC Stabilization Act, which essentially fires Gary Gensler and replaces that chair seat, adds another commissioner and an executive director. So it makes the SEC less political and more balanced. And he has some great questions to Gary. You know, he even alluded to the EITH Ethereum free pass. Some of you may have seen the clip. So he did a great job. And once again, I'm interviewing him tomorrow. So be sure you're subscribed on the podcast as well as the YouTube channel. And Tom Emmer also brought some heat on Gary Gensler saying, I'm convinced you are not an impartial regulator. And he went on and did a press conference about this. And Gary Gensler is a bureaucrat who does not answer to Congress and much more. So, you know, similar types of comments that we've seen historically. But I think the subpoena threat was the big takeaway for me. The other stuff was, you could argue, was said historically and said before and other hearings with Gary Gensler. Now, Democrat Richie Torres did a great job of talking to Gary and getting specific, like he highlighted, is buying a Pokemon card a security? Gary said no. So he said, well, what if that Pokemon card got tokenized on the blockchain? It's a den of security. And that's where Gary was going back and forth and saying he needs more details and yada, yada. But great questions by Representative Richie Torres, very laser targeted in detail where Gary is just like caught off guard and he's trying to dodge the questions. So Gary continues to get exposed. And I like what happened today. I think the clips and all the news that are coming out of it, while they may not be very much actionable, where Gary is getting kicked out tomorrow, right? They do paint Gary Gensler in a very bad light. And remember, I've said many times, a lot of politics is simply optics. And if you have bipartisan support against Gary Gensler, that's not good. He's not going to be in that seat for very long. So it's great to see Democrats coming out against Gary Gensler. Now, quick word from our sponsor folks, and that is Uphold, which makes crypto investing easy. I've been a user of Uphold since twenty eighteen. They have ten plus million users, two hundred and fifty plus crypto currencies, and they're available in one hundred and fifty countries. You can also trade precious metals and equities on Uphold. If you'd like to learn more, please visit the link in the description. Also, a great comment from Representative Andy Barr to Gary Gensler on capital markets. He said, if the U .S. capital markets are a gold medalist, you are the Tonya Harding of securities regulation because you are kneecapping the United States capital markets with the avalanche of red tape coming out of your commission. Wow. That is a pretty strong remark there. Many of you know about the Tonya Harding story. If you don't look it up, Nancy Kerrigan and Tonya Harden and someone who was sitting behind Gary Gensler started flashing the Coinbase stand with crypto NFT shield. Many of you have seen that. And someone also highlighted the stand with crypto logo on a piece of paper. So this is similar to what happened with the guy who did the buy Bitcoin behind Janet Yellen years ago. So they put this right behind Gary. So it's pretty funny. This is another one that's going to go in the record books. And on that note, the SEC did acknowledge that the 1 .5 trillion dollar asset manager, Franklin Templeton, spot Bitcoin ETF application. Now, that doesn't mean anything because we need an approval. But things are moving ahead for these new applicants. Now, as all this was happening, guess who was in D .C.? Brian Armstrong and the Coinbase folks. Pretty incredible. And they did this whole campaign where they're at the Hill and a Brian Armstrong tweet out here at our nation's capital for a stand with crypto day with 40 founders from across the country. It's time for America to join the rest of the G20 and get some clear rules on the books. So great move here by Coinbase because the juxtaposition of what Gary is saying and what a big publicly traded crypto company is doing with a whole bunch of founders in D .C., educating and providing advocacy is really, really great. So I love this. And you hear you see Brian posted some photos, he said a great meeting with Speaker Pelosi. Now, all feelings about Nancy Pelosi aside, this she's a Democrat, folks, and I think this is a very smart move, Brian. Very, very smart move, because today even Maxine Waters was praising Gary Gensler. Oh, he's the knight in shining armor. And Gary, you know, you've been doing your thing, protecting Americans from these crypto scammers. Right. So remember, just like two years ago, she was hugging up FTX saying she loves Sam Beckman Fried, blowing kisses, taking campaign donations from FTX. So she's can be bought and sold right pretty easily. And I really like this. Coinbase is playing chess here while Gary Gensler is getting grilled. I love it, love it, love it. And they took a whole bunch of photos here at the Capitol Hill. So smart move by Brian. Really, really smart move. Now, finally, Kraken sets sight on stock trading. So Kraken, the crypto exchange, they're looking to expand their services. And, you know, this makes sense. If you're ordering already an exchange where you sell crypto, you can easily move to stocks. And then I know some other folks have been looking to tokenize stocks and sell those. So this is a pretty big move. And we're going to see that these crypto exchanges are going to expand to other markets. And with the advent of tokenization, you know, they're going to tokenize a lot of the traditional financial markets and assets and commodities and much more. And allow people to easily get access to them globally, 24 seven trading and much more. So obviously this would put them up against like Robinhood, essentially right where you have stocks and you've got crypto in the mix. So I think it absolutely makes sense. Well, folks, that's the news. Let me know what you think. What did you think about Gary today in the hearing? And once again, I'll be interviewing Congressman Warren Davidson tomorrow. So be sure to check out that interview once it's published on Friday. And I'll talk to you all later.

A highlight from ANTI BITCOIN BOB MENENDEZ CHARGED! SEC GARY GENSLER DOESN'T LIKE THE LAW (CRYPTO NEWS)
"Welcome back to the Thinking Crypto Podcast, your home for cryptocurrency news and interviews. If you are new here, please hit that subscribe button as well as the thumbs up button and leave a comment below. If you're listening on a podcast platform such as Spotify, Apple or Google, please leave a five star rating and review. It supports the podcast and it doesn't cost you anything. Well, folks, we got very interesting news, which I'm sure many of you may have heard in the mainstream media, and that is Senator Bob Menendez has been charged with bribery and a whole bunch of other crimes. And you may say, well, Tony, why are you talking about this? Right. Well, folks, Senator Bob Menendez, who is a Democrat, he introduced a bill back in 2022, which would help to stop Bitcoin adoption in El Salvador. And he was citing that the adoption would open the door for money laundering and corruption. Wow. Talk about hypocrisy, folks, right? This guy all along for a very long time, his track record, he's been accused of doing a lot of shady stuff and now he's being charged here. The folks at Bitcoin Archive said the senator who said Bitcoin can open the doors of corruption in El Salvador was just indicted for corruption by federal prosecutors who seized one hundred thousand dollars in gold bars and four hundred and eighty thousand dollars in hidden cash from his home. So politicians those who are often very loud and screaming against crypto are the ones who have a lot to lose and a lot to hide, who are probably doing shady stuff. For example, Elizabeth Warren, Brad Sherman, Gary Gensler, right? I'm sure they've got some really nasty stuff in their closet. And some folks have shown that Elizabeth Warren has a net worth of seventy three million dollars. And of course, her salary is just like two hundred and eighty thousand a year. That's a great amount of wealth she's accumulated from just a senator's salary, right, folks? But we know the game, right? This is why we got to keep fighting and we got to expose these corrupt bureaucrats and politicians like Elizabeth Warren and Brad Sherman. We know they are puppets on the string doing a lot of the bidding of the tradfi incumbents and people who would love to kill crypto and not just even kill crypto, but just stop or kill the startups and allow their banking buddies and Wall Street buddies to come in and take over. So I'm glad these folks are getting exposed. And President Nayib Bukele, who, of course, he's the president of El Salvador, he tweeted about this news. He said, this is the guy that called for an investigation against us. He ended up being charged, period. So I'm glad he's doing a victory lap there. Now we got some interesting news about a library in the SEC. So we had reported just about a week and a half ago or two weeks ago that library was going to file an appeal. And this is based on the Ripple lawsuit outcome. Right. It makes sense. We have new case law with XRP, so it makes sense for them to appeal. And the First Circuit Court of Appeals in Boston has directed library to file its brief by November 1st, 2023. Now of course, this is no guarantee they're going to win. But the point is, we want to put the pressure on the SEC and Gary Gensler. We want to expose them for their lies, hypocrisy and much more. So I'm glad library is doing this. Attorney Jeremy Hogan highlighted a video here with Gary Gensler being interviewed. And it just shows his hypocrisy that he doesn't care about the law. He just cares about his own power and his next job. And it's no wonder Judge Sarah Netburn said the SEC has no faithful allegiance to the law. So he says the crypto space is full of hucksters and noncompliance. Well, the reporter asked them, would anything a court says change your mind? Great question. Gensler said, well, no, not really. And of course, he looked very shaky. He's losing confidence. And Attorney Jeremy Hogan said, you can't make this stuff up. So clearly, this man has no respect for the law. He's just making things up as he goes. It's about his show, his power, his ego. And we can't have that, folks. This guy's supported by our tax dollar. He should be kicked to the streets. And I'm telling you, I hope that Coinbase mops the floor with his buffoon and the SEC so that he has so much pressure on him. He's forced to resign. I'm hoping that happens. Now, Stuart Aldarati highlighted that same video. And here's what he had to say. What's most concerning to me and should be to you in the full video clip, this is the shocking admission of an unelected bureaucrat that he won't respect the decisions of the courts. So I'm thankful for the judicial branch and the balances we have in the government that a corrupt scumbag regulator like Gary Gensler, as much as he can go around saying all kinds of nonsense and nasty stuff, he has to respect the courts in a sense of what they put out there. Right. The SEC has to abide by that. Now, he may not personally agree, and he can, you know, like in this interview, say, oh, no, I don't agree with anything. But at the end of the day, if he takes a loss, he takes a loss. Right. So we got to keep fighting. I'm hoping the industry keeps fighting back as well. Now, quick word from our sponsor, and that is Uphold, which is a great crypto exchange that I've been using since twenty eighteen. I've interviewed their CEO and many representatives so I can vouch for this platform. They have ten plus million users, two hundred and fifty plus crypto currencies, and they're available in one hundred and fifty countries. You can also trade precious metals and thirty seven fiat currencies so you can switch between these different currencies and crypto and precious metals at a click of a button. So it's a unique platform and they've been around for a long time. Once again, I can vouch for this platform. So if you'd like to learn more, please visit the link in the description. All right. Let's move ahead. Caitlin Long was at Mainnet and she was tweeting out some of the statements coming out of Mainnet. I was at Mainnet yesterday and I met her. I tweeted out a photo of us together. I was supposed to go on Wednesday as well, but I wasn't feeling too hot. So stayed home that day. But, you know, there was a lot of folks there. And Brian Armstrong, CEO, was there. He said the Biden administration has been terrible for crypto. Well, that's to say the least, right? That's an understatement. They've been horrendous, in my opinion. Caitlin also highlighted that 61 percent of pro -crypto voters actually this is she's highlighting what Chris Lee Hain had to say, that 61 percent of pro -crypto voters in 2020 voted for Biden. Democrats are at risk of losing them in 2024 due to anti -crypto policy. Absolutely right. And these Democrats are shooting themselves in the foot. Patrick Hanson of Circle highlighted the following, that the euro stablecoin, obviously Circle issues USDC, but they also have the euro stablecoin and it's now EURC instead of EUROC. So just an update there. So the euro coin is now EURC. So just heads up on that, folks. And I want to highlight something I tweeted out today, and I think it's important. And, you know, all emotions aside, all feelings aside, I was highlighting that I'm very bullish on Ethereum for the 2024 -2025 bull market. Now this is, once again, all emotions and feelings about Bill Hinman and Joe Lubin aside, I still want those guys to be held accountable. But as for the token and the code, it's getting adoption. And I highlight that PayPal is building their stablecoin in Ethereum, right, PYUSD, Citibank's token is built on Ethereum. JP Morgan is working on a deposit token, which is built on Onyx, which is a permissioned version of the Ethereum blockchain. Coinbase is obviously launching base, which is their layer two for Ethereum, or they have launched it, I should say. And there's a rise in institutional ETH staking. So I'm very bullish on ETH and this type of news, these facts now, not my feelings, not my opinions, but these facts of adoption from very big companies and brands has me very bullish on Ethereum. I obviously hold ETH in my portfolio. I stake it and I continue to buy the dip, not financial advice. You should do your own research. And obviously I'm not just bullish on ETH alone, but just there's been a lot of adoption. And I want to highlight that because it's about facts, not feelings now. And I'm bullish on Bitcoin, XRP, Chainlink and many other tokens. Let's talk about Core Scientific, which is a Bitcoin mining company. So Core Scientific sealed $77 million Bitmain deal for 27 ,000 Bitcoin mining rigs. The deal was first finalized in August with Anchorage as another party agreeing to an equity stake in the bankrupt crypto miner. So one of the key things is that BlackRock also gave them a bit of money. Guys, this was back in 2022. So it's kind of like to the Victor goes to spoils where Bitmain was in trouble and then a whole bunch of folks started coming in to grab up as much as they can. So the deal between the two mining companies will see Bitmain supply 27 ,000 Bitcoin mining rigs for $23 million in cash, along with $53 .9 million worth of common stock of the bankrupt firm. Apart from the mining hardware purchase deal, Bitmain and Core Scientific have signed a new hosting agreement to assist Bitmain's mining operations. The deal was finalized in August when a court filing highlighted Bitmain's plan to sell mining hardware in exchange for cash and equity. As part of Core Scientific's restructuring plan, apart from Bitmain, the restructuring plan also included Anchorage. And you guys may have seen my interview recently with the president of Anchorage and the co -founder of Anchorage, Diego Monica. If you haven't seen that, be sure to check it out. It says here, restructuring plan also included Anchorage, BlockFi and mass mutual asset finance. Apart from Anchorage, all other three firms chose a mix of cash and equity options to settle their claims. The expansion investment plan by Bitmain will come into force by the fourth quarter of 2023, pending approval from a judge. Once approved, the hardware will potentially add 4 .1 exahashes to Core Scientific's hash rate. The two crypto mining companies all have also agreed to work together to upgrade Bitmain's last generation miners hosted at Core Scientific's data centers to further increase the firm's productivity. So, folks, Core Scientific, I will be potentially interviewing the new CEO and I'll let you guys know when that's coming up. But I want to definitely get into the details here and what BlackRock is doing with them in addition to Bitmain. So I'll definitely be asking those questions once I get the interview locked in. But, you know, a lot of companies are preparing for the Bitcoin mining next year. And many of you may have seen my interview uploaded earlier today with Fred Thiel, who's the CEO of Marathon Digital Holdings, and Marathon is working with a sovereign wealth fund. So, folks, there's going to be a lot of capital coming to the market. You're going to see a rise in demand for Bitcoin as the spot ETFs get approved, especially around, you know, BlackRock spot ETF and Fidelity and so forth. So I'm very bullish, you know, like I've been saying, we are in quantitative tightening, fighting inflation, rates are high, but this will end right as it has historically boom and bust cycles. The Fed will eventually start its QE again. They're going to start printing money, global liquidity will go back up and we'll be back in a bull market. We just have to be patient, dollar cost average where possible. And, you know, don't look at the price every day because you'll drive yourself crazy. And, you know, it's very volatile. Sometimes it's moving sideways. It's very boring. And I know that's tough. But just, you know, take your positions, obviously do your research, take your positions and just be patient and then, you know, watch what these players are doing. Right. Not so much the price, but watch what the players like this are doing, who's investing, who's building, who's raising capital and much more. So that's what I'm looking at. And that's why I build this podcast to share the news, because, you know, this is not going to make mainstream news. This is not going to be on CNBC, Fox or CNN or whatever it is. Right. And a lot of people are not paying attention. But I'm glad I'm here early. If you are here early, pat yourself on the back because there's going to be billions of people coming in buying Bitcoin and other crypto at a premium and they're going to go to BlackRock and whoever else. Right. But you and I are on the side of smart money. We are on the side of BlackRock. We are on the side of Fidelity. Right. Accumulating the lows. And then when the bull markets come back, then, you know, the herds, the herd who watch Jim Cramer and listen to Jim Cramer will go by. And that's when I'll be taking profits. And I'm sure many of you as well. So once you understand the market cycles, both for stocks, even real estate and obviously crypto, you know, you can make money, folks. And that's what I had to learn. I had to unlearn the mainstream media finance and listening to Jim Cramer and all these things. Right. And study the charts and understand the market cycles and know when to buy and when to sell, because all those things, you have to be a contrarian. Right. You've got to go against your emotions. You've got to go against the herd mentality. And that's hard if, you know, all your life you've been trained to go with the herd. Right. From television and media and all these things, you have to unlearn that. And once you get it, boy, it's pretty sweet. Right. To be able to make a nice return, make nice money. And obviously you've got to diversify. I diversify into different tokens, into stocks. I've often tweeted and sometimes shared, you know, my positions. Recently, I told you guys I bought PayPal because Jim Cramer said to sell PayPal. So I bought PayPal. Right. I know it's not going to be some quick flip. It may I see I may see some nice returns by next year and that's OK. I a am patient investor looking to build wealth for me and my family. So anyway, guys, that's my approach. Let me know what you think. I would love to hear what you guys think about this news. Leave your thoughts and comments below. Hit the thumbs up button.

Go to noblegoldinvestments .com right now. That is noblegoldinvestments .com right now. Hey, everybody. Happy Saturday. Thought Crimes. I joined late to this because I was at our Pastor Summit. But Andrew, Blake, and Jack carry the water for the first part of the episode. Talk about Mitt Romney. Talk about the Virginia Hooker. And then we also talk about Oliver Anthony, who I call a ginger Bernie Sanders with a banjo. Thought Crimes, where we say things that you're not even allowed to think in Western society. This is your warning. I'm just warning you that, yes, there is things in this episode that are not always appropriate for homeschoolers. Email us as always freedom at charliekirk .com and get involved with Turning Point USA at tpusa .com. That is tpusa .com. Buckle up, everybody. Here we go. Charlie, what you've done is incredible here. Maybe Charlie Kirk is on the college campuses. I want you to know we are lucky to have Charlie Kirk. Charlie Kirk's running the White House, folks. I want to thank Charlie. He's an incredible guy. His spirit, his love of this country. He's done an amazing job building one of the most powerful youth organizations ever created, Turning Point USA. We will not embrace the ideas that have destroyed countries, destroyed lives, and we are going to fight for freedom on campuses across the country. That's why we are here. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to tonight's edition, this week's edition of Thought Crime. Are you ready to commit thought crime? Because we've got a lot. Let's go around the horn. I'm not even sure because we got a lot of craziness going on right now. Our gas prices are up almost a full dollar here since last week, almost. And I was in California about a week ago. And I think are you guys hitting about six, almost $6 a gallon right now? Yeah, we are. Yeah, it's about five. How do you do it? I mean, honestly, Santa Barbara is a small town, so we don't drive a whole bunch. We don't feel it as much as probably like, you know, our Los Angeles friends. But I mean, at the end of the day, I mean, California is and actually this, this includes Arizona, Nevada, I believe, Washington and Oregon are considered the same sort of gas island. So they are as it has to do with where the oil comes from. It has to do with where they're getting refined. California has all these special additives and regulations that the refineries, these these benchmarks that refineries need to hit. So it can only come from certain refineries. So it limits the supply even more. It's a whole problem. So Charlie will be here in a little bit. He's at the Pastor Summit right now. He's dealing with some stuff. He's taking care of business on assignment, of course, for Turning Point USA, the faith coalition. But we're here. We're going to hold down the fort until Charlie returns. So shoot us your emails freedom at Charlie kirk .com. Let's get into the first topic here. This one, I think we've all talked about it, but we haven't all mentioned it together. This one, the the revenge or should we say the elegy for Willard Romney? Willard Mitt Romney has announced he's quitting the Senate total rage quit right before the 2024 election. So he's going to serve out the remainder of his term. And of course, as befits his character, he's riding off into the sunset by having the globalists at the Atlantic publish a completely obnoxious passive aggressive interview, trashing his colleagues, trashing Trump, trashing the GOP base. So what is the final word on the GOP 2012 standard bearer, the man who was the nominee for president in 2012? And, Blake, I think you actually have an excerpt from the from this article that's by McKay Coppins in the Atlantic. Oh, well, yeah, exactly, Jack. It's it's amazing. So, of course, he's everything about Romney is, you know, the supposed like, you know, politeness and decorum and all the damage that Trump does to our democracy by being always the last Boy Scout. Yeah, yeah, the last Boy Scout. So naturally, what he does is he announces he's retiring. And then, you know, in perfect timing with it, McKay Coppins has this biography that he's putting out that's, you know, all about Romney and has all these like data points in it. And he's basically just like Romney doing like a drive by shooting on other members of the Republican Party as he leaves. Let's see, like one of the lines from it. This is a summary as Axios summarizes it helpfully for us. Romney shares a unique disgust for senators Josh Hawley of Missouri and Ted Cruz of Texas, who he thought were too smart to believe Trump won the 2020 election. But, quote, put politics above the interests of liberal democracy and the Constitution. And then the even wilder one is for Senator J .D. Vance of Ohio. He says, quote, I don't know that I can disrespect someone more than J .D. Vance. That is a direct quote from Senator Romney describing Senator Vance, who he still has to, you know, share a Senate chamber with for the next year before he actually quits. But, you know, J .D., I mean, can can someone explain what what what is J .D. Vance done in his time in the Senate that's been so ill reputable? It could. Does anyone have what when he went to East Palestine and it seems it seems his crime is that went on there? I'm trying to figure this out. It seems his crime is that, you know, J .D. Vance came out of Ohio. He went to Yale, I believe it was. And then he was in finance and was, you know, and then wrote his memoir, which was very well received. And he's this up and comer on the coast. And then I guess he moved back to Ohio, started doing too many appearances on Tucker Carlson tonight. And like, according to Romney, it was like the transformation was just was just too jarring, like it was too too much of a transformation for for Mr. Romney, who himself has basically transmuted into this like Democrat, I guess. But that doesn't count. This is an interesting this is an interesting take on on all of it. And Andrew, maybe you can give us a sense of it, because what I think that Romney is really upset about here is that he's considering J .D. Vance a class a class traitor. He's calling him a class traitor and saying, look, you're allowed to make money in finance. You're allowed to make go to Yale. You're allowed to go to the great schools. But the one thing and you're certainly allowed to run for the Senate. But the one thing you're not allowed to do is actually go out to the people of your state, listen to the their interests and listen to their issues and then grow and go and try to actually represent them in the United States Senate. This I is think class traitor. I think that's really smart framing, Jack, because at some level, a lot of this is much more about vibe. It's much more about what Mitt Romney thinks is classy versus gross or respectable versus, you know, essentially untoward and beyond the pale. Right. So it's all based on his own little framework of of class structure, of decorum, those sorts of things. So it says here in this, he says he was also highly critical of Senator J .D. Vance, Republican of Ohio, who reinvented his persona to become a Trump acolyte after publishing a bestselling memoir, Hillbilly Elegy about the working class that Romney loved. So Romney loved the book. So at some level, I think it was just like, so I love this book. And how can this kind of become like a Trump bootlicker? Go ahead. Right. So I can there's there and just real quickly, it's kind of like because in the book, J .D. Vance's conclusions, I would say I don't offer this as criticism. I just say it's sort of it's an evolution on J .D. Vance's part because he sort of just says in the book, well, that that sort of that blase classic Republican line of, you know, and everybody just needs to pull themselves up by their bootstraps. I can do it. So can you. And we should cut taxes for big businesses and the one percent pays most of the income tax and that that's kind of it. And then when he went to actually run for office and started really engaging with people politically, that's when he shifted, not socially. Right. But he shifted economically to become more of a populist. Blake, what you're saying? Well, what's so telling in this article is like some of the just a little specific anecdotes that it does pick. And I almost wonder if Coppins is like subtly trolling Romney. Apparently Romney lives by himself and his family in D .C. It mentions let me get let me get the line here. It talks about his his his pad that he lives in. And it says the place had not been Romney's first choice for Washington residents when he was elected in twenty eighteen. He'd had his eye on a newly remodeled condo at the Watergate with glittering views of the Potomac. His wife, Ann, fell in love with the place, but his soon to be staffers and colleagues warned him about the commute, which, by the way, it's like a mile and a half to the Capitol. So he grudgingly chose practicality over luxury and settled for the two point four million dollar townhouse instead. And then, of course, this is not good enough for for Ann. So she never visits him when he's in D .C. So it turns into a gross bachelor pad that has it mentions there's crumbs everywhere.

What Does Hunter Biden's Indictment Really Mean?
"The Biden Justice Department is going to walk away with Hunter Biden being incarcerated? Sure, they want to lock Donald Trump up for the rest of his life, but they're not going to touch Hunter Biden. Like that CNN contributor said, this is only intended to present the the the image of the Biden Justice Department doing something about Hunter Biden's crimes. And unfortunately, that leftist commentary commentator on CNN is correct. The Trump administration didn't charge Hunter Biden's been going on. This has been going on for years. This is not a month in the making. This goes back six years. These crimes stem from something he did in I think it was either twenty eighteen or twenty nineteen. Trump's administration didn't do anything about it. And in fact, this special counsel prosecutor, whatever the guy, whatever the guy's title is, Weiss, he's a Trump appointee. Give me a break. This is all theater. This is all smoke and mirrors designed to give the Biden family cover and to give the Biden administration cover. I already saw the legal commentators weighing in last night, Dan Abrams over on ABC World News Tonight. This is very unusual. There was no crime committed. There wasn't any active violence. It's only a single count on a single gun. This is very rare. Oh, this is so rare. It's unusual, you know, suggesting that it's only politically motivated by the Republicans.
A highlight from Dissecting Djokovics Reign, Cocos Title & the 2023 US Open With Craig OShannessy
"Welcome to the official tennis .com podcast featuring professional coach and community leader Kamau Murray. Welcome to the tennis .com podcast. I am your host Kamau Murray and we are here with one of our usual suspects. We always have to do our Masters 1000 Grand Slam wrap up with Mr. Data, Mr. Analytics, Mr. Guy in the bunker with his pen and pad, Craig O 'Shaughnessy. Craig, welcome to the show. Pleasure to be here. Pleasure to be here. I just got back from the US Open. I was there for two weeks. It felt like eight. It's the most draining slam of all. It was a good tournament, some great matches. It's tough, I think way tougher to be there for the duration than any other tournament that there is. 100%. You survive. And the matches, the tournament goes so late and the process to get to and from the site makes it just a haul, right? And it makes the day just long. At an hour and a half to the front and the back of your day, in addition to sitting there watching matches and this thing. Before we get to Coco Sabalenka, because that'll take up the whole show, right? You and I normally, we dibble and dabble on the girls and then we dive into the men's. I want to do the reverse. I want to dibble and dabble in the men's because I don't think anyone's surprised about what happened because if we start talking about Coco and Sabalenka now, it'll just be the whole hour. So when you look at a whole two weeks, right, and I was there for the first part of it, seeing the energy, talking to the players, touching, feeling them, seeing how them and themselves A, were enjoying the atmosphere, sometimes a little too much, B, managing the atmosphere or C, trying to just control their bubble within the atmosphere. And I think that process probably, those three sort of situations probably cost Francis a further run, right, kind of getting caught in the matrix, right, absorbing a lot of atmosphere. And then Ben, with the experience of his family, his dad, controlling the atmosphere, probably had a lot to do with his long run. But I think the match that I think had the biggest impact on the tournament was definitely Novak versus Jerry. Did you see the match? What did you think when Novak left the court, down sucess to love, goes to the bathroom and looks himself in the mirror, what happened? Yeah, when he left the court, you know, it was, he's down two sets to love, Jerry's controlling the back of the court with his backhand, his backhand was the best shot on the court in the first two sets. But to be honest, even then Novak goes in, he's still the favorite, still the favorite down two sets to love. He's done it before, you know, it's one of those things where can your opponent play three blinding good sets out of five? Maybe not, probably not, when Novak goes in, you know, you just kind of reset, look in the mirror. He did exactly the same thing against Tsitsipas at Roland Garros, came out and just mowed over him in the last three sets, mowed over Jerry in the last three sets. It was a carbon copy, it's like Novak looks in the mirror and goes, okay, we've got that out of the way. Whether it's a combination of Novak being a little tight, playing, you know, a fellow countryman, it's a combination of early rounds being a bit tight. It's a combination of the opponent just playing spectacular tennis, but you can see right from the start of that match, Novak wasn't, his A game did not turn up right at the beginning. He was pushing, he was prodding, he was spinning, you know, just watching him play a thousand matches, you look at him and say, well, he's not there yet. And even after two sets, he's not there. But you know, sometimes for players, when you get down, it can relax you. It's like, well, I can't fall any further down this hall, I'm two sets to love down. May as well relax, may as well chill out, may as well believe in myself, may as well hit the ball, and Novak's the master of that. So I'm not so, I'm not surprised by the final result. And I think overall, it really helped Novak to play such a quality match and have to overcome some adversity early on. So I agree with you, very pivotal match for the men's draw. Well, let me ask you this, because from a coach's standpoint, when I see, when I see that type of performance, my mind goes to, it wasn't ready to play, right? When I look at like Francis and Ben Shelton, it looked like Francis wasn't ready to play. When I'm sitting in a coach's box and my player goes down 3 -0 or 4 -1, and they're like, deer in the headlines, don't know what to do, it was like, what was not clear prior to the match? You've spent a lot of time with Novak, Novak's got one of the best teams out there, he's the most methodical and committed to his regimen. How does something like that happen to a player who's number one, Jerry is Serbian, right? So you knew who you were playing, right? How did you come out not ready to play? I mean, is there a chance that at this big of an event, at this point in the event that he just wasn't ready or wasn't clear on what to do or from being close and inside, what do you think? Yeah, I think if you look back to Novak's seven matches, I think he will have a slightly different explanation for how he started in all sevens. You get all your ducks in a row, you watch the video, you talk to the team, you get the game plan, but at the start, it was like Novak, in that match, he may walk out there and sometimes he feels the energy of the crowd and it excites him. Sometimes you feel the energy of the crowd and you may go away a little bit and then come back. But I thought that he was attempting to work his way into this match, to start off even to let his resume do the talking early, let the other guy go away, let the other guy spray balls and it didn't happen. It just didn't happen. So all of a sudden, the opponent's not missing a thing, the opponent's playing at a much higher level than Novak was and you're just not ready for that. He's not ready for that. You're going to play a match like that. In the course of a season where these guys are playing about 80 matches, you're going to have these subtleties with how the opponent's playing, how you're playing, are you really ready, are you working yourself into the match, are you coming out guns blazing? And it was just a bad combination of layers for Novak where Jerry threw the first punches, Novak's tasting blood, and it took him a couple of sets to recover, but there was never any doubt in my mind that he would still win that match. And I think that's the oddest thing. I think the odds makers, after being two sets, Novak was still the favorite and I was like, wow. That's probably the first time that I've seen that, I'm not a better, but the odds makers were still favoring Novak. So let me ask you this. Another pivotal match in the tournament, I think, was TFO Ben Shelton. Yeah, I was at that match. I think we all knew Ben Shelton could play. I thought it was very impressive, him beating Tommy Paul, right? One of the things, and I don't know the reason for this, is when he beat Tommy Paul, the crowd, obviously they had to choose, both Americans, Ben and Tommy, but when Ben beat Tommy, I was a little disappointed that the crowd was kind of quiet, right? But we don't have to hop on that, but I do want to point it out that the crowd was eerily quiet after the win of that. But with him and Francis, one of the things that concerned me about Francis was in that New York environment, with all the celebrities, with all the kind of like, and I mean, first of all, we got to keep it going. More non -tennis people, more non -tennis athletes, musicians, entertainers, artists showed up to the US Open this year than I can ever remember. And we need to do that for the sport to grow. But you still got a tournament to play, right? And this generation who loves that, loves the attention, will have to learn to balance how much is too much, how much gets me off kilter, and how much gets me off track. And I thought that the day before the Ben match, you saw Francis with Bieber. I thought that that was a little too much and perhaps maybe took for granted that Ben would shit his pants, and he didn't, right? You know what I mean? Because when you get to that point in the tournament, when you are the veteran, you kind of expect the young guy to give you a couple, like, ah, if I just play solid, he'll know who he is, and the shock factor will cause him to make a few unforced errors or some bad decisions, and it didn't happen. And to me, that goes in the book of, Francis didn't look ready to play, and I think he'll learn from this experience on managing the energy, managing his energy, for that late in the tournament. But I mean, Ben brought it. What was your take on Ben now when you look at the stats, when you look at the 149 mile an hour serve, what is your take on him now having seen him play six matches? Well, the Tommy Paul match was really good. I liked how he managed the ability to say, okay, this is a ball to pull the trigger on. I spoke with his dad at the start of the tournament, and I mentioned possibly our discussion that we've had in other ones is that I think Ben's maturity is going to come from figuring out when there's one more ball that needs to be hit. There's just one more ball. And I think maybe I talked to you about it last time, but it goes back to me to the 2000 Australian Open final. Agassi beats Kefalnikov in four sets. Agassi's one in the world, Kefalnikov's two. Agassi goes to the post -match interview. Bruce McAvaney is interviewing there, and they're watching some film, and Agassi's just going, you know, Kefalnikov moves well, he lights the ball up, the surface helps him, and he throws this line in there, he goes in the middle, he goes, and he's only looking to pull the trigger one time in the point. So he's a really tough opponent. And that just has always stuck with me. And that's what I said to Ben's dad is that Ben needs to just go, I could pull the trigger on this ball, but it's not quite the right one yet. I could pull the trigger on the next ball. Literally, you could pull the trigger on every ball he hits. But growth, his his maturity, his tennis development and tennis IQ is getting better because you're hitting a ball that makes the opponent uncomfortable, you're hitting a ball that can extract an error, and you don't always have to hit the winner. So Ben's development is going to be predicated on one more ball in the court and making a better decision on when to pull the trigger. And I thought he did a great job in the Tommy Paul match and a great job in the Francis Tiafone match of not pulling too early. And then he went and played Novak and just everything went to hell in a hand basket. And it didn't. But that was, you know, I was for the Tiafone match getting back to that. You know, I'm watching at the start and the first kind of 10 minutes, it looked kind of even, you know, good decisions, both sides, good points, both sides. Francis was so quick coming to the net. He does such a great job of, you know, hitting a ball and he's already leaning on it, you know, with his short little backswing on the backhand. And all of a sudden he's almost leaning over the net, spiking these volleys. I'm like, oh, my God, this guy has figured out, you know, the only person I saw that really blew me out of the water with that was McEnroe, John McEnroe. He looked like he went through a time warp, whereas it takes, you know, all of us 1 .5 seconds to move from the baseline inside into the service box. But he goes through this time warp that looks like 0 .2 of a second. He's like, how does he get in there that quickly? Francis showed me that early on. But then the focus, the concentration, the locked in, the decision making started to erode at around the 10 to 15 minute mark, and he never recovered from that. Yeah. So you get Ben has Novak in the semifinals. And I think that Novak, I mean, just has this ability to you know, it's what I was it's kind of what Coco did. I call it cumulative pressure. And it is. I'm going to run the ball down, I'm going to make you hit an extra ball, I'm going to make you play one more ball every point on your serve so that later you feel it. You may not feel it now, but later you feel it. And that was an example of what I call cumulative pressure that kind of got to Ben. Yeah. What was your take on what Novak did to Ben or vice versa, what Ben did not do that match that he did the previous matches? Yeah, good point. That was that was a really fun match to be at the energy, the atmosphere, you know, the old guard, the new guard. You're exactly right. There was, you know, on that court in twenty eighteen, I worked with Novak to defeat Del Potro. And a lot of the commentators, when you go back and go through that match, they're like, Del Potro is dropping 135, 138 and Novak's putting it back in his shoes. And the commentators are like, how in the world is he doing this? Well, there's only one way that you do that is that you study Del Potro's patterns and you know what to say. When Del Potro needs a point in the juice court, he's going to and when he doesn't need a point, he's going to go, why? Novak's sitting there on it. And I felt the same thing is that Ben's dropping heat on especially on first serves. And Novak is putting so many balls back in play that you're exactly right, that it just kept accumulating and accumulating. The other thing that really stood out to me. That I don't know why is that Ben sliced so many returns, just this slow, just not even like a Federer kind of knifing, dark slice, it's this blocking slow slice that's not as good as Wawrinka's. It's not within a meter of the baseline. It's there was once he's just too defensive. So he's putting no pressure, no pressure on Novak because because he overdid the slice. Now, all of a sudden, he's got to deal with so many serves coming back and then the decision making. Then he starts, you know, the fingers kind of on the trigger, then he starts pulling it too much. And then, you know, Novak knows why this kid is potentially a real problem for me. But I've already figured him out about 15 minutes in. He's not doing anything against my serve. I'm doing everything against his serve and putting times back. I'm just going to press cruise control and take a nap for the next 30 kilometers. Yeah. And I think that was probably the one mistake and probably a tactic that was misinterpreted was, hey, if on his serve, put pressure on because you get racket on every ball, not to bunt every ball. Right. Because Novak is the is the history, the best returner in history, but he's not the best server in history. And he I don't want to call it vulnerable, but you will have an opportunity or two against Novak on his serve in a five set match. And I thought, Ben, with as great of a service he had, with as big of a service he has, he didn't take enough risks on the return gains and he didn't play. Correct. And when I say aggressive, I don't mean like crazy out of this world, we're winners, but controlled aggression. There was no reason Novak serving a buck 21, a buck 22 for you to block the serve back. You can have plenty of time to take a full swing and at least send a message for the rest of his career that your serve doesn't bother me. Right. Part of being a young guy is how do I apply cumulative pressure that may not work this match, but in three or four matches from now in the next semi? Right. Because you still got to go through Novak that shows them I'm not bothered by your serve and you better be you will be bothered by my serve. Right. And I think that was sort of a missed opportunity for Ben to take some cuts at Novak serve. And I think that set the tone for the match that allowed Novak to kind of steam roll.
Rob Smith: The Importance & Reality of the Black Vote
"Thoughts on that? Well, yes. So, you know, I got and I got a lot of pushback on Twitter last week because basically what I was saying is I'm seeing all these people talking about, you know, that Republicans, whether it's Trump, Defantis, whoever, is going to get thirty forty to forty percent of the black vote in twenty twenty four. And I said, look, guys, like you need to bring this down. This is virtually impossible, number one, because the infrastructure is not there in order to make this happen. OK, we heard a lot of this stuff in twenty eighteen to twenty twenty. I'm somebody that gained a lot of prominence as a that black conservative was basically saying, OK, I left the left. This is what's going on in the community. This is what could possibly happen in twenty twenty. And the thing about it is, is that it just didn't happen in twenty twenty. OK. And so my argument is not with people like you that are conservative commentators that are saying, you know, we want the black vote, we're welcoming the black vote. I think my argument is that the swamp will literally tell people that they're going to get 30, 40 percent of the black vote and they'll have all the little surrogates saying this stuff while they do absolutely nothing to get it. And so my beef is really with the swamp. It's a hustle we've and seen it all before. And so instead of saying, OK, what happened in 2020 is the black vote went from eight percent up for Republicans in 2016 to 11 percent in 2020. Right. So black people just did not show up for Trump in 2020. And I'm not saying that Trump was not doing things. Of course, he was doing everything. He did the platinum plan. I was literally in the Oval Office with Trump. I was on the campaign intro. There were some real things that were happening and black people still did not show up. And after 2020, when they didn't show up, none of that infrastructure remained there in order to say, OK, well, we didn't get it what we wanted in 2020. Let's make sure we get it in 2024. All of that stuff went away, Dan. Be black for Trump centers all across the country. That went away. All that outreach went away. And now these people are trying tell to me that there's going to be 30 to 40
A highlight from #49: The Gameshow - Part 3
"Bye bye. Mirko, I hope you win. You hope I win, why? Because that was so good. I agree. Did you guys like it? Yes. I loved it. So Kyle, you rated it at eleven. Yeah, I think it's eleven. I think it's David Bowie, that's the honour of them. Do I have to do it out of ten though? Did you say ten? Yeah, but you know, I chose eleven because you can eat moustache, and you can file with it on top, so yeah. What, is it bread on top? Innit, bread's on top. But, right now I'm rating Lily Anne and Mirko. So, Lily Anne has to get... She has to get nineteen to beat Mirko. And if she gets eighteen, then it's a tie. It's a tiebreaker. Yeah? But what did you win? We rated you a twenty because Kyle gave you an eleven, and I gave you a nine just to even it out. Alright, so Lily has to get eighteen. Kyle, what did you rate Lily's? Oh, you're going first mate, you're going first. No, no, no, no Pinky, I'm not in the runners. You were going first. Kyle, please, I'm doing it just because you can rate it. Just saying. I rate it a nine. Oh, a ten and Lily has won. A nine, a tie. And anything less than nine, Mirko has won. So, and I rate it a nine out of ten. It's a tie. Of course, it has to be a tie. Are you only doing this with a tie? Yeah. You're making a tie. Who do you want to win? Like new, Mirko. Oh, you know what, we'll do a vote. A vote? How can we vote? I'll ask Kyle, I'll vote myself, and then I'll ask Oliver. Well, Oliver's going to be salty because he got eliminated basically because of me. Yeah. That's advice. So, what if Oliver's doing like another talent? Oliver's goal would go to likely. My goal goes to Mirko. So, it's up to Marvin. Marvin, you choose. Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. What if we do like give each other 30 seconds to explain why we should win? Yeah, we should do that. We should do that. Thank you. Oliver, you should vote. This is my idea. Lily goes first. Who's going first? Mirko. Lily goes first because it's my idea. You think it will be? Tag? Yeah. Okay. Wait, we're going to have to come back. So, Kyle, what did you think about our performances? You know, I loved all of you. I'm going to sit back. What do you say? I love all of you. I'm going to sit back. Real quick. Absolutely. Love you. Mirko, why did you say you should win? What do you say? I think you should win Mirko. No, I've got no more. Mirko has to say why. That's why I choose fast. Let Lily go first because it's my idea. Alright. So, basically, yeah, I don't personally think I should win. I just thought it was very fun to be on this. And I hope whoever wins, wins. Yeah. It's just very fun to be on this show. You're welcome. You're welcome. My ideas always work. But still. Yeah. I'm pretty ready to win. I feel like I should win because my speech was actually impactful. I didn't explain about serious topics like discrimination. And I realistically think if you don't vote for me to win, you don't really care much about discrimination, hate towards the different races. It's a bit weird. I also mentioned, you know, your favourite stuff, for example. I mentioned David Bowie. I also mentioned Marvin. Marvin reference. But Mirko has one problem. What's the problem? I vote for you if you say bread is better than food. And if you don't edit that out, then I won't be. Well, realistically, I did say that in the rap. Yeah, but you'd still need to say it if you won that vote. And realistically, you also have to make other people say it, too, because it is biased. Yeah, but bread is still better than food. If you say it, then I'll vote for you. But this does smell like bias to my head. Yeah, I don't really care. It sniffs like... What? ...bias. I'll vote for you, Mirko. Mirko, if you say that, bread is better than food. Alright, bread is better than food. Say it, Mirko. I did. Say it. Kyle, did you hear me say it? Yeah, say it on me. I can't hear anything. Bread is better than food. Alright, alright. Thank you, Mirko. Alright then. Kyle, who's your vote, too? Because you voted Mirko, I say let's vote likely. What? No, it's a tie again. No, no. I thought I just voted because I literally thought it was a tie. That's alright then. I need to leave it to Oliver, then. Oliver's last vote is a tie. Oliver's last. Oliver's last. Anyway, folks, my biggest recommendation to you all is that you watch and watch Oliver pick the job. I'm the winner. I'm the winner. I'm the... What? I think we're gonna have to get... Right then. Right, Oliver's voted. And since it's a tie, it has to actually work out. Yeah? People, first of all... Marvin, you're a cheat. Second of all... Oliver, Oliver. Second of all, myself. Okay, no, I'm just joking. I'm joking. I was just going to announce it. Okay, I'm joking, I'm joking. I say sorry. I apologise for your inconvenience. You apologise to me for cheating. Alright, I'm sorry for cheating. Yeah. And you do so. And you do so. Okay, shut up. Shut up. Wait, Oliver. Yeah. You know when Marvin was trying to kick you out? You know when I was defending you and you knew he was against you, right? No. I was helping you. Why? Why? I was helping you stay in the game. Why? It's not a lie. You can literally watch back. I was helping Oliver stay in the game. You're a liar. You guys were against me. I was helping Oliver stay in the game. I was telling Marvin when you guys left. Oh, Marvin is leaving. It's not even that deep. Remember when I said it's not that deep? Remember, you can find the messages. It's not that deep. I said that. I did say that. Yeah, but then if it hit one left to me. No, I didn't message it to you as well. Yeah, yeah. Yeah, I was defending him. You know what, Mirko? Since you went to the whole hour, should we do it again? Do what again? Should we let Oliver come back? I don't mind. Oliver, do you want to come back? Yeah. See, Oliver. See, see, see, see. Wait, look. If I never said this, Oliver would have never came back. See, see, see, see, see. Alright then. You were playing Kingston before. You were saying Oliver. It's not that deep. No, no. Yeah. We have a three -way vote.
A highlight from NEW COVID VARIANT HERE NOW!! (What will crypto do?!)
"I think we all know that this video is going to be shadow banned and probably going to be removed by YouTube. But I'm going to speak my mind here and I'm going to show you what's actually going on because there is talk of a new COVID variant and I want to show you what's going on so that you're up to date and you know exactly what's happening. I know you think I may be blowing things out of proportion, but just just have a look here and tell me what what you make of this COVID is making a comeback this summer. So many of us would like to leave it in the past, but cases are once again on the rise. So when will new booster shots roll out? And Thompson asked the CDC director. So COVID is on the rise, but when will the new booster shot be out? Does that remind you of anything? Does that maybe remind you of of the old COVID, the old COVID lockdowns? What's going on here? What are the what are the the the motives here? Why is this coming back and why is this coming back right now? Is there actually a new variant? What is it all about? We're going to speak about that. We're also going to speak about Bitcoin because look, Bitcoin's under the 26 ,000 level. It's not really an emergency just yet, but the real like emergency I would say is if you look at total three, which is the total alt market cap, excluding Bitcoin and Ethereum, and that is now back at levels of just after the FTX collapse. So this is where the FTX collapse was. And if you look at where total three is, this is where total three is. It's the same levels as it was just after the FTX collapse. Now, the question is, what is the future of of this altcoin market? What's it what's it going to do? What's it going to do in the near future? And speaking of COVID, if you look at the Bitcoin RSI, which is the sentiment indicator on Bitcoin, you can see that the RSI are so oversold that the last time that the RSI were oversold is here at this previous COVID low, which where Bitcoin was 3 ,875. So I mean, is this a coincidence that the two COVID lows are or the two RSI lows was at the previous COVID pandemic, beginning of the previous COVID pandemic? And this one again is at the beginning of the new COVID pandemic. We're going to talk about that. Also, a big day today on the NASDAQ, because today we have Nvidia reporting results. You can see Nvidia has had a huge tear this year. I mean, a lot of people actually talk about this rally being the AI rally and the stock that has led the AI rallies in video and they're reporting earnings today. If the earnings if Nvidia's earnings beat forecast, then NASDAQ rallies and probably continues to rally towards an all time high. disappoints If Nvidia today, then we probably see a 5 % correction in the NASDAQ. And then you're going to get the bears coming out and saying that this is we're entering a bear market. So big day today on the NASDAQ. Also, we're going to cross over to BRICS to see what's happening in BRICS. I know that Vladimir Putin spoke. He spoke about the dollarization. The Brazilian prime minister spoke about the dollarization. So we'll touch on that. And then I'm going to show you some tokens that I'm actually looking to buy. Now, I want to just say I'm not buying yet. I'm getting ready to buy. I'll show you what the tokens are and why I'm getting ready to buy. And I know you're probably looking at this and going, are you crazy talking about buying tokens when the market's like this? But that's what I'm going to show you. I'm going to show you my rationale and my thinking. So lots to do today. Let's get in. How scary to think that the IRS is actually back at pre -COVID levels, that the sentiment is actually back at pre -COVID levels in the last time that this happened, Bitcoin was at three thousand eight hundred and forty dollars. And I think we then had a rally of seventeen hundred percent. Yeah, sixteen hundred seventeen hundred percent rally after the IRS eyes were this low. So I wonder if the pattern is actually going to repeat itself. Also, I wonder if we're going to get lockdowns again. I wonder what the motives are. In fact, I don't wonder. I'm going to show you what I think the motives are for this this new whisper of COVID lockdowns about a year and a bit before the elections. I mean, look, it's definitely coincidental. There can't be there can't be anything else to it. It has to be coincidental. So we're going to talk about that. We're going to talk about the Binance FUD, because I think that's that's something we talk about. Yeah, lots to talk about, lots to talk about. So listen, if you are new to the channel, obviously subscribe, subscribe, subscribe to our channel, the fastest growing major channel in crypto. If you have been here for a long time, you know the show is going to get shadowbanned. I know the show is going to get shadowbanned. We spent the whole morning deciding whether we wanted to actually talk about that. And we decided that we would rather bring you the truth and not get censored. And if we lose views or if the channel takes a bit of a knock, so what? And the only way I can you can help me get out of this is smashing the like, putting positive comments and helping us get completely, completely, completely unshadowbanned. All right. So let's get into the meat and potatoes of the show. So, yeah, let's quickly look at this. So we've got Sheldon was showing me the Bitcoin chart today, showing me something quite scary. I don't know if I if I actually believe him, but he says, look, if you look at where this rally in twenty seventeen, the rally that took us out of this started, you can say the rally in twenty in twenty eighteen actually started in, say, twenty fourth of December. If you look at where this year's rally started, pretty much more or less the same time, twenty third, twenty fourth of December. Then he says, OK, when did we top? When did we top on this? They can let you can say, look, we topped somewhere around twenty fourth of June or near July. And if you look at this, when did we actually top somewhere around June or July? And he's saying, look, we are following this trend. We are following the cycle. If we do follow the cycle, we could have quite a long way to go before we get to the same levels here. And I do think that we are following the cycle. I want to actually show you. So if we look at the pre -harving cycles, I don't think there's anything different in in the cycles. You can see that we have a a downtrend, we have an uptrend, we have a reaccumulation zone. And then as we get to the halving from the halving, we really start climbing. So I don't know if this year is going to be that different. It looks like the cycle, as much as I hate to say it, it does look like the cycle is is playing out very similar, very similar to two previous cycles. We're also getting in the cycle while this is all happening, we are getting the short term holders capitulating. So if you look at the short term holder, the short term holders, they completely, completely, completely capitulated while the smart money is actually starting to accumulate at this level, at this level of the cycle. And what you see now is you're seeing a whole lot of FUD on Altcoin. So no, Benjamin Khan saying, look, there is a chance that, you know, Solana goes back to eight dollars. I've seen the bear saying that that we could go back to to to a Bitcoin price of nine dollars, nine thousand dollars and twelve thousand dollars. Remember that in this part of the cycle, in the bear part of the cycle, the bears get to be right and they get to tell you that they're right just for like a short period of time because bears will keep calling the market down. They'll keep telling you that Bitcoin is going down to twelve thousand and whatever else. And they'll be right for like short periods of time. But long, long periods of time, they won't be right because the market will just continue to go up and continue to go up. So let them enjoy their moment in the sand. I have been actually looking at the rainbow chart now. You know, I mean, initially I was obviously very, very, very skeptical of the rainbow chart. How the rainbow chart works is it tells you whether Bitcoin is overbought over here. Yeah, it's like maximum bubble territory, serious set of FOMO intensifies. Is this a bubble huddle? Still cheap, accumulated by and basically a fire cell. And as much as, you know, initially I was quite skeptical about the rainbow chart. If you look at it over a long period of time, it actually is quite right. And you can see that right now we're entering the we're in the buy zone and we're entering the basically a fire cell. So there's not actually that much panic on Bitcoin at the moment. Sentiment is bad, but it's not like it's not extreme fear. People are scared, but people aren't very, very scared. And that's why I'm not really ready to start buying old coins yet, because I think that there'll be better opportunities. I'm not saying don't start dollar cost averaging, but don't spend all your money now. And the reason why you probably shouldn't spend all your money now is because we're not at the point where people are panicking. People are getting demotivated. People are getting depressed. But remember that that's what this part of the cycle is designed to do. This part of the cycle is designed to depress you. That's why it's called the depression phase. Now, if we are here and we do have this accumulation left to go, I really hope that the accumulation isn't as long as the previous accumulation, because you can see that it took about a year and a half from that point to get to the same level in the last cycle. I don't think we're there, but I mean, you do need to prepare yourself for a marathon and you do need to prepare yourself to take maybe a little bit more losses if we follow the previous cycle. Be that as it may, as I said, I think I'm in the camp of this rainbow chart, which basically says, look, when prices start coming down to the bottom here, when they start reaching this oversold territory, just keep accumulating slowly. But the main thing is stay in the game, because I showed you that I showed you this here. I'll show it to you again. The main thing is that you've got to be here when these one, two, three, four, five days happen and one, two, three, four, five, six days happen and one, two, three, four, five, six days happen. The whole increase in the price of Bitcoin, 100 percent increase was here over 24 days, eight, eight and eight or seven, seven and seven. So I think you've got to be here. You've got to be here when this happens. So don't get demotivated now. Don't give up now. Now is probably the best time to to actually be accumulating. And I'll show you a bit later what it is that I'm actually accumulating and why I'm actually accumulating it, because a lot of people were talking to me about my tweet yesterday. Let's look at the bubbles. Oh, I'm loving the bubbles, Josh, I must say, and actually, to be honest, it's actually not only me loving the bubbles. I see Kasper is down seven point two eight today, maybe getting into my buy zone. Not yet. Not yet. Robert also down six point five three, also not in my buy zone yet. I mean, as I said, I am loving the bubbles. For those of you who don't know, there is a morning banter research call. Just click on newsroom over here. You'll see that we have a call in 17 hours added to your calendar and then you can join our morning research call. Also, if you want to search for a token, like, for example, if you don't know where Solana is, just search and you'll see it actually starts flashing. So we've built that functionality. And I think a lot of people are starting to notice bubbles today and now you can see earlier yesterday who's back streaming, by the way. And I actually I love his videos. So he he was also one of the people that really helped me when I when I started banter. He was one of the guys that like really, really helped me with the channel. So good to see him streaming again. And yesterday on his stream, he actually spoke about banter bubbles. Let's get to a really good tool. This tool was created by Crypto Banter. It's called the Banter Bubbles. And I want to be clear here. If you've been on crypto Twitter or if you follow this industry closely, none of these names will be a shock to you because these have all been talked about a lot on crypto Twitter. I'm not the first person talking about any of these. But one thing I think is really easy is you go to the banter bubbles here and you go ahead and you set it over to the year. And this gives you the highest performing tokens over the last year. And you can also say top one hundred, top two hundred. So good to see that other streamers are actually starting to to notice banter bubbles.
A highlight from 1379: Bitcoin Will Reach $400,000 Next Halving Epoch
"In today's show, we're going to be discussing Bitcoin analysts eyeing a V -shape Bitcoin price bounce as the RSI hits a five -year low. I'm also going to be sharing with you a new Bitcoin bull cycle metric, which bought them before 70 % gains. We'll also be discussing mysterious Bitcoin wallet becomes the third largest Bitcoin hodler in under three months, now at over $3 billion. We'll also be discussing the trader who nailed the 2018 Bitcoin price floor predicts the bear market bottom for crypto. I'll be breaking down his outlook. We'll also be discussing Guggenheim predicts a $400 ,000 Bitcoin price prediction, as well as Blockware. They share that the Bitcoin price can reach $400 ,000 during the next halving epoch. I'll be breaking this down for you. We'll also be taking a look at the overall crypto market, all this plus so much more in today's show. Yo, what's good, crypto fam? This is first and foremost, a video show. So if you want the full premium experience with video, visit my YouTube channel at Cryptonewsalerts .net. Again, that's Cryptonewsalerts .net. Welcome, everyone. Just joining us. This is podcast episode number thirteen hundred and seventy nine. I'm your host, JV. And today is August twenty second, twenty twenty three. And naturally, we have lots to cover. Unfortunately, the market is continuing on its downward spiral. We just broke that twenty six K resistance, as you can see here. And our market watch, we've got Bitcoin currently hovering just above twenty five thousand eight hundred dollars. We have Ether barely holding on to sixteen hundred. So the million dollar question becomes, how low will she go? And checking out CoinMarketCap .com, the crypto market cap barely holding on to that trillion dollar milestone, with about twenty eight billion in volume. In the past twenty four hours, we have the Bitcoin dominance at forty eight point four percent and the Ether dominance at eighteen point nine percent. And checking out the top one hundred crypto gainers for the past week, virtually nothing, and maybe just a handful, just a sea of losses, very unfortunate for the entire crypto market and checking out the crypto greed and fear index. Of course, we're still in fear today, rated to seventy eight. Last week was a fifty three neutral and last month a fifty four neutral as well. So there you have it. I mean, I've been taking advantage of this recent dip. I mean, sub twenty six thousand dollar Bitcoin seems like a bargain. If you're to ask me, let me know in that live chat. And now let's break down today's Bitcoin technical analysis and check out the charts and what is happening right now in the markets. Bitcoin stayed stubbornly anti trend today, August twenty second, as twenty six thousand became a magnet for the intraday Bitcoin price action. And again, we're just currently dropping right below it. And regarding the RSI readings, here's what someone had to share. At this stage, it feels like a game of chicken to see who is going to make the move to break the chop, according to material indicators. Now analyzing liquidity on the Binance order book, he also notes that a broad lack of liquidity, increasing the potential for a sharp move in either direction. Quitting the analysts here, the market is waiting to see if more bid or more ask liquidity is going to be attracted to the range. So far, we're seeing small amounts of bid liquidity ladder up from twenty thousand closer to the active trading zone, but no liquidity of any size new or moved has been stacked into the range, defending the price from the lower low. The implications were nonetheless potentially very serious for the bulls with the lower low apt to risk even a twenty thousand support going forward. Quitting the analysts again, needless to say, printing a lower low on this time frame has macro implications. Printing two lower lows would push the Bitcoin price to sub twenty thousand dollar levels. So a great question. How many of you are anticipating the Bitcoin price action dropping below twenty thousand? Let me know. Now zooming out, hope remain that Bitcoin can rescue its overall uptrend. So it's not all doom and gloom. In a dedicated video, we had crypto analyst Mikal van de Poppe shared that on the twelve hour time frames, the RSI measured less than nineteen at the time of writing near its lowest level since the twenty eighteen bear market bottom. Daily levels were similar, reaching their lowest since the March twenty twenty no vid crossmarket crash, quitting him here. Every time we see such a move, you get a sort of V shape recovery back up and it finds equilibrium on the higher floor. And he also added it was very likely that Bitcoin can stage a comeback to focus on twenty six five or more next as the outlines here in this chart. He also shared that the current Bitcoin price action reminds me of September twenty twenty absorption and slowly grind higher here for a while. And I can see this play out similarly. So there you have it. What are your thoughts? Do you feel we're likely to continue downwards, potentially sub twenty thousand or even touch in as low as twenty thousand? Or do you feel we're likely to continue climbing back up as the analysts on the ladder shared? Let me know your honest thoughts in the comments. Right down below. Now let's discuss a new bull cycle amongst us right now. Shall we check this out? The Bitcoin metric that nailed the pit of the twenty twenty two bear market says this uptrend is still intact. Let's go and a new post. The creator of on chain analytics platform looking to Bitcoin shared some good news in the form of Bitcoin's realized cap huddle waves metric. Let's go. While last week's 10 percent Bitcoin price dip has up ended some of the on chain landscape, the our huddle is one of the metrics taking the longer term view of what remains a timely bull market. This metric takes existing huddle waves data, which groups the Bitcoin supply when each coin or specifically the unspent transaction outputs last moved and waits it by the realized price. An example of the price at which it last move, quoting them here, peaks in younger age bands, highlights the periods where they have a proportionally higher realized value waiting relative to the older realized value age band, said Philip Swift. And he also shares this is important to note, as it indicates that the market is prepared to pay higher values for Bitcoin today and in recent times versus historical norms. This can be a good indicator that the market is becoming overheated. What are your thoughts now? Currently, the bands of coins that last moved three to six months ago are rising, a phenomenon coming to the start of the Bitcoin's previous bull markets. And on the topic of the August drawdown on Bitcoin Swift thus concluded that the recent price dip is the context of a much bigger bull trend, quoting him again here, three to six months band trending up as new money comes back into the market equals new bull cycle. Let's go. Now, our huddle has an impressive record when it comes to Bitcoin price phases. Back in December of last year, when Bitcoin was circling its two year lows of 15 six, which is the current market bottom, Swift used this metric to call the end of the euphoria among Bitcoin's speculative investor cohort, which he labels Taurus. He stated that that time that the market is likely now at these cycle lows, which means maximum risk reward opportunity, which I discussed in great detail yesterday. I said there's way more reward than risk currently in the market. And beginning in January of this year, Bitcoin began a new uptrend that delivered 70 percent gains just in quarter one. And since then, investor composition has changed with the short term huddler entities holding Bitcoin for one hundred and fifty five days or less, reducing their overall exposure to their lowest since November of twenty twenty one. And the latest dip nonetheless increased pressure on those remaining speculators, but almost 90 percent of the short term huddler coins now held at an unrealized loss. But I also like to point out that also the smart money, which are the whales, are continuing to accumulate. So even though the short term investors are the paper hands selling their Bitcoin potentially to BlackRock or MicroStrategy, whatever big corporate interests out there, the smart money is continuing to huddle. And as you know, we like to follow the smart money with that being shared, fam. Now let's discuss this new wallet, which came out of nowhere and has now accrued over three billion dollars worth of Bitcoin in less than three months. Who do you think owns this wallet? Well, let's look into it and discuss it, shall we? A mysterious Bitcoin wallet has surged up the ranks to become the third largest huddler of Bitcoin in the world in just over three months, with the timing sparking some wild theories about its owner. According to data from crypto statistics platform Bitinfo Charts, the wallet address first received Bitcoin on March 8th, and over the course of the next three months and two weeks, the wallet had accrued a staggering one hundred and eighteen thousand BTC worth over a billion dollars at today's current prices. Now, the rapid and significant accrual of Bitcoin within a single wallet addresses has attracted its fair share of conjecture naturally on X. Some users suggest it's most likely a crypto exchange moving their funds, while some more radical members have posted and more wild theories suggesting that Black Rock is the prime suspect. As shared here, this unknown address has accumulated over three billion dollars worth of Bitcoin in the last three months. The prime suspect, my first major transaction, which was thirty four hundred Bitcoin, occurred on May 16th, 2023, almost exactly one month later, on June 15th, when Black Rock filed for spot Bitcoin ETF. Now, very interesting, right? Now, the current largest Bitcoin wallets in the world, according to Bitinfo Charts, are reportedly owned by Binance and Bitfinex and are Bitcoin cold storage wallets. The unknown Bitcoin wallet comes in third place and is then followed by another Binance cold wallet in fourth place. Now, Black Rock made waves in the crypto market, as we know, June 15th, filing an application for the spot Bitcoin ETF product that, if accepted by the SEC, will be the first of its kind in the United States and completely change the game. Black Rock's applications sparked a wave of filings for similar spot products from a horde of other Wall Street heavyweights, including Fidelity, Invesco, Wisdom Tree and Valkyrie. The prospect of a spot Bitcoin ETF whipped crypto analysts into a frenzy, sharing their bullish predictions for the price of Bitcoin with Fundstrat's head of research, Tom Lee, suggesting that Bitcoin can reach a price of one hundred and fifty to one hundred and eighty thousand dollars per coin following the halving event scheduled to be in April 2024, which is now officially less than nine months out. What are your thoughts, though, fam? Let me know in the comments. And at the end of the show, I'll be reading everyone's comments out loud. Now let's discuss before we get into very bullish price targets, including this four hundred thousand dollar prediction, which is the main topic for the day. First, let's discuss where's the Bitcoin price likely to bottom out, according to this top analyst. Let's discuss it. The trader who accurately called Bitcoin's twenty eighteen bear market bottom is forecasting how the entire crypto market can carve a price floor for this cycle. Synonymous analyst Bluntz, what a username, love it, shared on social media X that he closely is looking at the total market cap of crypto, which is the total chart. Bluntz says he sees the total chart losing about 15 percent of its value before crypto assets can witness a significant bounce, quitting him here, looking at total paints, the clearest picture of them all and far more than looking at either ETH or BTC on their own based off the total chart. I do believe the June lows still need to be swept before calling bottoms, but it will probably be the last good buying opportunity of the next few years. So seize the moment, fam. And as you can see in this total crypto market chart, you can see we're currently sitting at just barely above one trillion. He sees us dropping before rising to one point four trillion dollars. So it appears that he expects the total market cap of all crypto to plummet to roughly eight hundred and eighty billion, wiping out one hundred and twenty billion off the current market. The analyst is a popular practitioner of the Elliott Wave theory, which we commonly cover here, an advanced technical analysis approach that attempts to predict the future price action by following crowd psychology that tends to manifest in waves. Bluntz says that his prediction is based on a model that outlines an asset's potential correction after a steep rally based, quoting him here, based off simple Elliott Wave model, viewing the rise from the lows as an impulsive move and our corrective wave from the highs being around 70 to 80 percent complete. Now, let me know if you agree or disagree with the crypto analyst. Do you think the crypto market cap needs to shed another one hundred and twenty billion before we rise back on up? Let me know your honest thoughts in the comments right down below. Now let's discuss Guggenheim's seven I'm sorry, four hundred thousand dollar price prediction. Scott Minard, who is their CIO. He originally made this prediction, I believe towards the end of twenty twenty one. Now, unfortunately, he has had a heart attack and he passed, so he's no longer with us. He literally died in December of last year. But nonetheless, he still made this prediction. So we're going to cover it and then we're going to discover the outline metrics from Blockware and their four hundred thousand prediction for the height of this cycle for the next halving reaching the epoch, which is also interesting because they're also suggesting a four hundred thousand dollar price action per coin. Then we'll dive into our live Q &A. So here we go. This was again, this article was dated, as you can see here, January 18th, twenty twenty one. So this is roughly just over two years ago. And at that time, Bitcoin was trading just above forty one thousand dollars. So here's the prediction coming from Scott Minard, from Guggenheim, a large, large asset manager. I think one thing that we are seeing is the sudden interest in retail. We are moving into a speculative frenzy and perhaps it's time to take some money off the table. Now, the debate around Minard's two opposite comments for Bitcoin sparked curiosity amongst the crypto community when he said time to take money off the table. And he also added on this tweet, it was before it became X, it was right Twitter. So he shared Bitcoin's parabolic rise is unsustainable in the near term, vulnerable to a setback. The target technical upside of thirty five thousand has been exceeded time to take some money off the table. And just at that time when he made that tweet, Bitcoin entered a strong correction. And over that time, Bitcoin tested support at thirty thousand twice before resuming back northwards and also talking about the positive side, back to the four hundred thousand price prediction. The Guggenheim CIO said that Bitcoin is becoming a favorable asset class slowly. That's right. And still remains positive on the Bitcoin price action for the long term, quitting him here. The other side of that is demonstrating that crypto is becoming much more mainstream. The four hundred thousand dollar price I talked about was based off the supply of gold in the world and crypto in a lot of ways is more attractive than gold. Let me know if you agree or disagree. I absolutely agree that Bitcoin is way more attractive than gold and comparing it to the yellow metal market. Minard said that Bitcoin comes with additional benefits like portability and ease of transactions. And note that Guggenheim Partners is already seeking five hundred million dollars worth of exposure to Bitcoin via the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust, which is the GBTC product, the largest HODLer Bitcoin in the world. They currently control over four hundred thousand BTC. So this will be a 10 percent exposure to Bitcoin from five billion Guggenheim's macro opportunities fund. The investment giant's proposed SEC filing shall become effective January 31st. And when asked Minard of if any of their funds have been allocated into Bitcoin, Minard hinted that they are still waiting for the SEC to approve their proposal. He added that if client demand picks up, they would possibly consider some allocations. And he also revealed that some small private Guggenheim funds have done some allocations, quoting him again, and some of our private funds, we have already purchased it. I recommended it to somebody. So if you believe what I said, that it'll go to four hundred thousand dollars per coin eventually, then two percent of your portfolio will be 20 percent before this is all over. So there you have it. Let me know if you agree or disagree with Scott Minard. And again, rest in peace. The dude had a heart attack at the end of last year and is no longer with us. And with that being shared now for our main story of the day, and that's the block where outline prediction of a four hundred thousand dollar Bitcoin price, along with the math to back it up. Now, this is pretty awesome. And again, shout out to everyone today in our live chat. I appreciate everyone's support. Shout out to Blockware Solutions as they shared on X how Bitcoin can reach four hundred thousand dollars per coin during the next halving epoch brought to you by Blockware Intelligence. Here we go. Twenty twenty four halving analysis, understanding the market cycles and opportunities created by the halving. Unlike other commodities, Bitcoin has a predetermined algorithmic supply schedule, which cannot be changed. There are multiple factors contributing to the cyclical nature of Bitcoin's price, including network adoption and the macroeconomic environment. But the most impactful is the mining subsidy halving. Yeah, that's right. Bitcoin's market cycles are unique due to its fully transparent block chain, providing market participants with more granular information than any other asset class. And moreover, the predictable supply schedule further impacts the psychology of market participants and example demand. So number one, halving's reduce the sell pressure. Miners are the primary force of sell pressure on the price of Bitcoin they receive, although the newly issued Bitcoin and the majority of which they must sell in order to fund operating expenses for their mining operations, the weakest miners on the network are eliminated and sell pressure is significantly reduced. The price of Bitcoin begins drifting up and a new wave of adoption then begins and assuming a thirty five thousand price action after the halving, the U .S. dollar value of Bitcoin mined per year can drop from eleven and a half billion to five point seven billion dollars. That is one hundred and sixty four thousand two hundred and fifty Bitcoin less mined every year, more than MicroStrategy's entire Bitcoin treasury. Now, after the inefficient miners capitulate, the profit margin increases for surviving miners, which further reduces the sell pressure. So based on the post capitulation hashrate estimate, this would result in a two point three billion dollar reduction in annual sell pressure from the miners. Now, number two, halving brings new demand with supply being diminished. Demand is the only remaining variable determining the market price of BTC. Many market participants understand the supply side dynamics at play due to the halvings. Historically, this has led to a surge in demand in the months following each halving, as evidenced by on chain data. We'll be checking out these charts in a little bit and do the positive sentiment market participants prepare to deploy capital at the first sign of upward momentum. Now decreased supply plus increased demand equals strong positive signal for the price appreciation. Number three, the halvings cannot be priced in. Despite their predictable nature, halvings cannot be fully priced in before they occur. A higher price today would result in more miners coming online, introducing additional sell pressure and limiting the price appreciation. And moreover, the weakest miners, those with old generation machines and or high operating costs, are the first to unplug post halving. The elimination of these miners significantly reduces the sell pressure as they were selling most of their Bitcoin to fund their operations. Lastly, there are some market participants that believe halvings are bad for the security of the Bitcoin network as the diminishing block subsidy reduces the amount of miners making Bitcoin more vulnerable to an attack. And when halving successfully occur, these doubters are proved wrong and positive sentiment increases. Now, number four, Bitcoin cycle volatility and historical performance. Bitcoin's extreme volatility is a side effect of its halving shocks and rapid global adoption, resulting in four distinct stages within each halving cycle. Stage one, the halving, stage two, the bull market, stage three, the bear market and then stage four, recovery. And while Bitcoin is often criticized for its extreme volatility on a long enough time horizon, its volatility is solely to the upside. Keep that in mind. Now, nobody who has ever bought Bitcoin and held it for more than five years is down on their purchase. That's worth repeating. Nobody who has ever bought Bitcoin and held it for more than five years is down on their purchase. So in a long term, how long is that? Holla in the live chat. And for each epoch, the price of Bitcoin has increased by the following amounts from the halving to the next bull market top from 2009 to 2011. We had a 584 X increase in price action from 2012 to 2015, 92 X from 2016 to 2019, 30 X and from 2020 to 2024, 7 .7 X. And now number five, diminishing returns may not be the case going forward. Some question the bullishness of these halvings as the stock of existing Bitcoin grows relative to the amount of new bitcoins being mine. This is a common perspective, but it may be incorrect. Less than 10 percent of the existing Bitcoin have moved in the last month. A large majority of Bitcoin is held by users unwilling to sell at today's price. Now, the small amount of bitcoins that is moving and being traded is what determines today's price. There is a baseline of demand and from Bitcoin are saving for the future. The reduction in sell pressure becomes more pronounced, each halving after Bitcoin more than doubles in price. This indicates that halving induced reductions in sell pressure could become more extreme and potentially lead to larger bull runs in the future. Now, 2024 will be the first halving where the supply of Bitcoin available for trade decreased since the previous halving. And during spring of 2020, the percentage of the outstanding Bitcoin available for trade was at an all time high, indicating the Bitcoin was over becoming more abundant. However, this trend had reversed over the last three and a half years. And as the new bull market begins, there will be less Bitcoin available than the previous cycles. The first halving this has ever occurred. And assuming the price of thirty five thousand at the date of the halving, a four hundred thousand dollar cycle top would break the trend of diminishing returns, which is a reasonable expectation due to the two billion having supply shock and increasing scarcity, a liquid BTC supply on the exchanges. Now, number six, juxtaposition with gold. Gold is an asset similar to Bitcoin and that they are both non -sovereign stores of value. However, when juxtaposed, Bitcoin poses far more desirable attributes. Facts. Number one, Bitcoin is absolutely scarce, while gold is only relatively scarce. That's true because with gold, you can continue mining a new supply, adding to the overall supply each and every year with Bitcoin. There could never be more than twenty one million Bitcoin. And number two, Bitcoin is more portable, divisible, fungible and is less vulnerable to rehypothecation by centralized custodians. Facts. So after the 2024 halving, the inflation rate of Bitcoin will fall under one percent, which is less than half that of gold. Now, four hundred thousand dollars per Bitcoin would put the market cap of Bitcoin just beneath the parity with gold. Let's go. Can't wait for a twelve trillion market cap for the king crypto personally. Now, given the bullish catalysts induced by the halving, we believe this is a fair estimate for the top of the coming Bitcoin cycle. Now let's take a look at some of these charts, which they shared. This first one shows you the Bitcoin price issuance with the 90 day moving 90 day change issuance. And you can see, you know, the different metrics here in the different colors. And then let's go to their next chart here. It shows you entities net growth with a 30 day moving average. You can see the surge in demand and just continuing to move on up like clockwork. And then in this final chart here, we can see the Bitcoin price all time highs for each cycle, which is separated, which you can see here. Yes. So, I mean, if history doesn't repeat, oftentimes it shall rhyme. So I cannot wait. And I'd personally love to see a four hundred thousand dollar price action. And this shows you the hash rate, which just continues to climb, reaching all time highs, making the Bitcoin network more secure than it's ever been before. And they also shared an interesting update, which I might as well read that as well right here. Part two. Let's read a touch of this and then we'll dive into our live Q &A. What machine and electricity rate will Bitcoin miners need to survive this twenty twenty four halving? Check it out. There are three distinct phases in the time before, during and after the twenty twenty four Bitcoin halving. We've got number one, the pre halving, number two, the post halving and number three, post capitulation. Number one, the pre halving before the twenty twenty four halving, all miners will be operating at a profit but are likely selling at least enough Bitcoin to cover their operation expenses. Miners with the most efficient machines and the lowest energy rates have the lowest Bitcoin breakeven prices. And the miners with higher breakeven prices are either unprofitable or forced to sell at a higher percentage of the Bitcoin that they mine in order to cover their operating expenses. And also it includes what's minor and Avalon equivalents, which are size adjusted for the percentage of the total network hash rate. Now let's discuss the post halving after the twenty twenty four halving. Many miners will become unprofitable since miners have already made significant capital expenditures for mining Bitcoin infrastructure and are locked into energy contracts. They are unlikely to turn off immediately. So instead, they will try to continue operating for as long as possible, hoping the Bitcoin increases enough to make them profitable again. Now, unless Bitcoin price appreciates quickly, the extreme margin compression will begin to force inefficient miners offline. And number three, the post capitulation following the capitulation of inefficient miners difficulty will adjust down, lowering the breakeven prices for surviving miners who will become even more profitable. So there you have it. I mean, shout out again to Blockware. Awesome analysis on their outline of the Bitcoin price going to four hundred thousand dollars per coin at the epoch of the next halving, which again is right around the corner next year.

A highlight from 1373: BlackRock Bitcoin ETF Will Send Bitcoin to $180K by THIS Date
"In today's show, I'll be breaking down the latest technical analysis, as well as Bitcoin speculators are now saying that at least 69 ,000 all time high in play. But right now is the least amount owned by hodlers. We have to keep this in mind. We're also going to be discussing Max Kaiser's Congress speech about disarming the banksters along with their financial weapons of mass destruction, as well as Bitcoin friendly El Salvador sees bonds return soar to 70 percent thus far this year. In twenty twenty three, we're also going to be discussing a crypto analyst who forecast the big Bitcoin price move to forty thousand. I'll be breaking down his timeline, as well as rich dad Robert Kiyosaki doubles down on his hundred thousand dollar Bitcoin price call and says he shares a common enemy with BTC, quoting him right here, Bitcoin to one hundred thousand dollars, saying for years gold and silver is God's money. Bitcoin is the people's money. Bad news. If the stock and bond markets crash, gold and silver will skyrocket. The worst news is if the economy crashes Bitcoin to a million dollars, gold to seventy five thousand and silver to sixty thousand savers of fake US are F debt is too high. Mom, pop and kids are in trouble. I hope I'm wrong. Please take care. We're also going to be discussing breaking news. Fundstrats Thomas Lee on live TV, quoting him here. If the spot Bitcoin ETF gets approved, the clearing price of Bitcoin is one hundred and fifty to one hundred eighty thousand dollars.

This is Pod episode number thirteen hundred and seventy three. This is August 16th, twenty twenty three. I'm your host, JV. We do have lots to cover. So let's dive in with our market watch for the day. As you can see here in your screen, got Bitcoin price maintaining that critical twenty nine thousand dollars support while ether also correcting but maintaining and holding on to eighteen hundred dollars and checking out coin market cap dot com.

Bone Shiba swap up 13 percent trading at a dollar fifty four, followed by say up eleven percent trading at 19 cents, followed by rocket pool up three percent trading just under twenty seven dollars and checking out next. As you can see here on your screen, we have crypto bubbles. We can see the top gainers for the past week. Bone leading the pack, pun intended, up fifteen percent, but massive losses for the overall altcoin market and checking out the crypto greed and fear index, which you can see here. We're currently rated at fifty two, which is neutral. Yesterday, a fifty three last week, a fifty neutral and last month, a fifty four, which is neutral. And welcome to those just joining us in today's live stream. So much to cover. Next up, we're going to dive into our Bitcoin technical analysis. Check out some of the charts, as well as some interesting facts with some hodlers as well. Bitcoin speculators are leading a period of exhaustion and apathy across the market. In the latest edition of the weekly newsletter, the week on chain analytics firm Glassnode wrote about waning conviction about Bitcoin's short term hodlers. Now, where are my long term hodlers at? Make some noise. And after several months of stagnant Bitcoin price action, frustration amongst market participants has led to predictions of deeper downside to come. The bulls remain unable to break the resistance, while the sellers likewise face multiple support zones in the form of trend lines between the current twenty nine thousand and twenty five thousand dollar levels. And amongst these is the short term hodler cost basis, or better known as the realized price. Short term hodlers are defined by Glassnode as entities hodling coins for one hundred and fifty five days or less and correspond to the more speculative end of the Bitcoin spectrum. investor Now, the short term hodler cost basis has function as support throughout twenty twenty three, but is rapidly rising and currently sits at twenty eight thousand six hundred dollars. Now, by contrast, the long term hodler cost basis reflects the aggregate purchase price of the most stubborn hodlers and thus far lower at twenty thousand three hundred. Quitting Glassnode, the separation between these two cost basis is an indicator that many recent buyers have a relatively equated acquisition price and continuing, researchers describe the market as being potentially top heavy with even a modest Bitcoin price come down now apt to send the short term hodler cohort back into the red. Quoting Glassnode again, on the macro scale, the supply distribution does resemble similar periods during the bear market recoveries of the past. However, a shorter time frame, it could be argued to be slightly top heavy market with many price sensitive investors at risk of falling into unrealized losses. Now, despite this, it appears that speculators have already started to reconsider their market exposure. Let me know if you have or if you're continuing to stack stats as you should. Quoting them here, we note that the supply held by the long term hodlers continues to increase, hitting an all time high of fourteen point six million BTC. So in direct contrast, short term hodler supply declined to multiyear lows at two point five six million BTC the week on chain added. So overall, this suggests that conviction of Bitcoin investors does remain impressively high and few are willing to liquidate their holdings. Are you one of them? Let me know in the comments right down below. Now, the last time the short term hodlers had such little market presence was in October of twenty twenty one, just before the all time high of sixty nine thousand dollars. And it is very interesting as we see the short term hodlers continue to sell and the long term hodlers continue to stack stats as they should. I say the smart money are the whales and the long term hodlers. Would you agree? Let me know your honest opinion. Let me know your honest thoughts in the comments right down below. And now let's discuss our next story of the day. And that's Max Keiser's rant when he spoke in Congress back in January of two thousand and nine, talking about disarming the bankers and their financial weapons, a mass destruction, a very powerful speech given by Max. If you've got to hear this, let me know. I posted and transcribed it on what was formerly known as Twitter, now known as X this morning, quoting Max Keiser. This is an important day as we review the situation with respect to disarming bankers. After the first Great Depression, Congress passed the Glass -Steagall Act. The purpose of the resolution was to disarm bankers as well as brokers. Now, never again would they be allowed to destroy the global financial system. I'm here to warn you that they have, in fact, rearm themselves with a deadly toxic debt instrument known as a derivative. I asked for this session today to support the core assessment made by FAME investor Warren Buffett. He said derivatives are financial weapons of mass destruction and that have apparently been devised by madmen. These instruments pose a mega catastrophic risk. Ladies and gentlemen, don't wait for the mushroom cloud of bad debts to explode over our financial system. Let's disarm the bankers before it's too late. Very powerful words coming from Max Keiser. And again, this is circa January of two thousand and nine, right around the time of the Bitcoin Genesis block, which was released after the 2008 financial crisis. And lo and behold, you can consider him a prophet because everything he was talking about is exactly what's been going on. Financial terrorism as it continues as the central bankers of the world continue to print money until the wheels fall off. Massive shout out to Max Keiser and Stacey Herbert. As you know, I'm huge fans of them both via the Kaiser report as they were the first one to cover Bitcoin with international coverage back when it was trading between a dollar to ten dollars. This is going all the way back in 2011, so literally was at 14 or 13 years ago. So much respect to the high priest of Bitcoin. And with that being shared, fam, now let's discuss our next story of the day. Now that we covered Max versus the banksters and that is El Salvador and their success with their bonds, which have been released as returns soar to 70 percent thus far this year. Check it out. El Salvador, which adopted Bitcoin as the legal tender back in 2021, has seen its dollar bound outperform the majority of the emerging markets with a 70 percent return thus far this year. The massive rally of the bond has now drawn interest from several institutional giants, which include JPMorgan Chase. Take that tapeworm Jamie Dimon, as well as Eaton Vance and PGIM Fix, promoting President Najib Okele to say, I told you so. Now, apart from the institutional giants, the likes of Lord and EBIT and also Neuberger German or I'm sorry, Berman Group LLC and UBS Group AG have also added debt security since April, according to Bloomberg. And also, Paolo, the chief technology officer of Bitfinex, told Cointelegraph that the performance of El Salvador bonds is a clear signal that the investors are supportive of the financial policies of the El Salvadoran government and demonstrates the renewed interest in investing in the El Salvador story while adding the following as the first company to receive a digital asset license, we are seeing significant interest in digital asset issuance and renewable energy investments, which the country has in abundance and is being used for Bitcoin mining and to provide more energy for the country's electrical grid. Now, the growing demand of El Salvador's debt security in 2023 is a quite contrast to its performance a couple of years ago when it first adopted Bitcoin as the legal tender. That's right. They've come a long way. The Bitcoin adoption created uncertainty amongst investors who bet against the country's bonds with several financial agencies, casting a shadow of doubt on the country's financial future. In February of 2022, the American Credit Agency agency Fitch lowered the country's long term issuer default rating from a B minus to CCC, inciting policy uncertainty in the Bitcoin adoption, along with an eight hundred million dollar debt payment due for January of twenty twenty three. Now, keep in mind, El Salvador did pay that eight hundred million dollar debt in full within the due maturing time to start off the year, raising confidence in the country's bonds yet again. And the president, Bukele, at the time noted that they had proven every finance pundit wrong, who doubted whether they would be able to pay their debts in a time after Bitcoin adoption, quoting Bukele here. He actually shared this in January of twenty twenty three in the past year. Almost every legacy international news outlet said that because of our Bitcoin bet, El Salvador was going to default on its debt by January of twenty twenty three, since we had an eight hundred million dollar bond maturing today, literally hundreds of articles. Never forget that. Now, the rise in confidence of investors is visible from the bonds performance throughout the year. And during the same time, El Salvador also passed a landmark crypto bill paving the way for the infamous Bitcoin backed volcano bonds. Let's freaking go. Now, El Salvador and its president have been at the receiving end of criticism every single day since they first adopted Bitcoin in September of twenty twenty one as legal tender, along with the United States dollar financial pundits predicted that the Bitcoin adoption will further strain El Salvador's financial conditions. However, to the contrary, within two years, the debt security of the state has become a hot cake amongst institutional giants, the same that once advised against buying it. So I'll say it for Bukele. I told you so. So there you have it. Let's go El Salvador mass adoption. Bring it. In which country do you think will likely be next to adopt Bitcoin as a legal tender and follow in the footsteps of Bukele and El Salvador? Let me know your honest thoughts in the comments right down below. Now, let's discuss a forty thousand dollar Bitcoin price prediction, as well as a timeline, which I'm going to be sharing with you right here. If you think Bitcoin is likely to hit this forty thousand target, let me know. Now, while he followed analyst Pizzino is bullish on Bitcoin as the flagship crypto asset trades in a narrow range for the past few days or we could say for the past few weeks in a new video, he tells his three hundred thousand YouTube subs the Bitcoin can climb by over 40 percent from the current level between now and September of twenty twenty four. Considering September is only two weeks away, that would be pretty enticing winning it. The crypto analyst says that his upside target of forty two thousand is the range midpoint or the 50 percent level between the Bitcoin all time high of sixty nine thousand and Bitcoin's twenty twenty two low of around fifteen five. Quitting him here, it is possible that we see a test of forty two thousand happen within the period between now and September of twenty twenty four. So in basically twelve, thirteen months, a test of the 50 percent level of forty two thousand two hundred and then a retreat. Do you think we're likely to rise on up to that forty thousand mark? Let me know. And after appreciating to over forty thousand Bitcoin could thereafter correct either mildly or substantially, according to the analyst quoting him again, it could be a small retreat like back here, June to August of twenty sixteen, where it tested seven hundred and then came back to five hundred. Or it could be a deep retreat where it tested all the way up to fourteen thousand in June of twenty nineteen, when the 50 percent level was only eleven thousand five hundred. And then it came all the way back down to four thousand in March of twenty twenty, thanks to no vid. And to watch this video with the analyst predicting Bitcoin can rise to one hundred and sixty one thousand, check the show notes below the video in the description. And please do let me know if you agree or disagree with the crypto analyst. And now let's discuss our next story of the day, and that's the one hundred thousand dollar Bitcoin price prediction from Rich Dad author Robert Kiyosaki. In fact, he even claims that Bitcoin can now go to a million dollars. So let's break this down and then we'll dive into our feature story of the day with the BlackRock ETF, which can send the Bitcoin price parabolic over six hundred percent, surpassing a whopping price target of one hundred and eighty thousand dollars. But first, Robert Kiyosaki, he stands behind his call that the Bitcoin price will put a new all time high and run all the way up to one hundred thousand. Let me know if you agree or disagree with the author. Now, Kiyosaki refers to Bitcoin as the people's money very commonly and says that those who save in U .S. dollars are likely screwed. And that was the nice way of putting it. Reading his tweet here, Bitcoin to one hundred thousand dollars, saying for years gold and silver is God's money. Bitcoin is the people's money preach bad news if the stocks and bond market crash gold and silver to skyrocket the worst news if the economy crashes Bitcoin to a million dollars. Now, that doesn't sound like so such bad news to me. That would be extremely brilliant news for the Bitcoin price to go to a million. But I understand an economy crash is not good. But he continues gold to seventy five thousand and silver to sixty thousand. I do not see those precious metals rising like that, especially considering they're controlled by the central bankers and the cartels have been controlling precious metal markets for a very long time. But nonetheless, I digress. He continues, savers of fake U .S. dollars are effed. Debt is too high. Mom, pops and kids are in trouble. And I hope I am wrong, but please take care. I mean, very bold words coming from Kiyosaki. Also, in an interview he did with Stansberry Research's Daniela Cambone, he warned up the idea of Bitcoin as he has lost all trust in institutions running the country, quitting him here. I like Bitcoin because we have an enemy in common breach. It's called the federal government breach, the Treasury and the Fed and Wall Street breach. I don't trust them. If you trust them, save dollars and get yourself a nice bond. I do not trust those guys. How many can relate with Rich Dad earlier in the year? Kiyosaki also predicted Bitcoin would eventually skyrocket to one hundred thousand per coin, highlighting that the king crypto does not need the intervention of the government to sustain its value. So there you have it. Come in directly from Rich Dad. Let me know if you agree or disagree with the Rich Dad, Poor Dad author. And with that being shared, now let's dive into our featured story of the day. That's everything surrounding the BlackRock ETF, a spot Bitcoin ETF being approved in the United States. Tom Lee was just recently interviewed and says he believes it will automatically send the Bitcoin price somewhere between one hundred and fifty and one hundred and eighty thousand dollars. So let's break this down, shall we? And here this is on this interview. I also already transcribed it for your benefit here. And I'm going to start reading so we don't have to play that sound clip because it's copyrighted. Anyways, he's asked, I always like hearing your price targets. Because you are always so fearless. When are you or where are you on Bitcoin by the end of next year? Let's say. And he responded, well, it's a spot Bitcoin gets approved, referring to the spot Bitcoin ETF. I think the demand will be greater than the daily supply of Bitcoin. So the clearing price, which is done by Sean Farrell, who is our crypto digital strategist, is over one hundred and fifty thousand dollars. In fact, it could even be one hundred and eighty thousand per Bitcoin. And then when asked, that's only if the spot ETF gets approved. Tom Lee responded, yes, a spot US because a spot Bitcoin ETF is approved already outside the US, which is a fact. And then asked, but if it's not approved, then are we just lingering at around twenty nine thousand in which he responded? There is still upside cast because of the halving next year. So you'll have a drop in supply again. And so the clearing price has to increase, but it won't be six figures. So he's ultimately saying the approval of the spot Bitcoin ETF, regardless if it's BlackRock or any of the others, such as Fidelity or ARK Invest, 21 shares, etc., will absolutely send the Bitcoin price to a minimal of one hundred and fifty thousand. And that target could even be as high as one hundred and eighty thousand. But he's also saying in the same token, if Gary Gensler and the SEC does not approve it by the time of the halving, do not expect a six figure Bitcoin price, but expect the price to go up because of the drop in supply as well as the gain and demand. I think the analyst makes a very great point. Now, he was also interviewed a few weeks ago and he discussed this price action occurring within nine months. So I wanted to give you that time frame because the Bitcoin ETF is scheduled to be released sometime. Not the ETF, but the halving is scheduled to be in April of twenty twenty four. So anyways, here's what he had to share in this interview. Current Bitcoin market is in balance with twenty five million in daily block rewards and twenty five million in daily demand, incremental ETF demand. Sean Farrell, their analyst, believes that twenty five billion dollars of demand is possible within the first year. So this is how they come to these numbers. This is one hundred million dollars in daily demand. This would bring the daily demand to one hundred and twenty five million while the daily supply is only twenty five million. So the implied equilibrium price would need to rise so that the daily supply matches the daily demand. Equilibrium analysis suggests that a clearing price is one hundred and forty to one hundred and eighty thousand per Bitcoin before the April twenty twenty four halving. Now, if you'd like to see that come to fruition, make some noise in the live chat. Now he continues. Generally, this idea of higher equilibrium price is consistent. Sean Farrell estimates that the flow multiplier for Bitcoin is four to five X and on the odds of a spot Bitcoin ETF finally getting approved in the United States after numerous rejections of the past year. Here's what we had to share. Bitcoin ETF could finally get approved. Sean Farrell sees the BlackRock effect, making it this far more likely today. Now, BlackRock, we all know, is the world's largest asset manager, and they say they have roughly 10 trillion or more in assets under management. So there you have it. Very bullish predictions coming from Tom Lee and on regards to this BlackRock ETF being approved. But I'd love to know your thoughts. Do you think that the BlackRock Bitcoin ETF will be approved within the next nine months before the Bitcoin halving scheduled to be in April of twenty twenty four? Let me know why or why not. And I'm going to start reading all of your comments out loud. And don't forget to check out CryptoNewsAlerts .net for the full premium experience with video and to participate in the live Q &A.

A highlight from HUGE HBAR NEWS! FEDNOW HEDERA DROPP - COINBASE CRYPTO REGULATIONS, ARGENTINA BITCOIN + COREUM
"Welcome back to the Thinking Crypto Podcast, your home for cryptocurrency news and interviews. If you are new here, please hit that subscribe button as well as the thumbs up button and leave a comment below. If you're listening on a podcast platform such as Spotify, Apple or Google, please leave a five star rating and review. It supports the podcast and it doesn't cost you anything. Well, folks, I want to start off by giving you some perspective about all markets and bad actors and good actors. You know, quite often we hear Gary Gensler say there's a lot of scammers and hucksters and whatever else in the crypto market, right? He's painting the whole industry and asset class with broad strokes. But we know that's a lie and he's just gaslighting, right? But if you look at all markets, there are bad actors there. For example, UBS, one of the largest banks to pay $1 .4 billion for fraud in mortgage backed securities. So great example that even a established, fully regulated industry still has fraud happening, JP Morgan and all these banks, Wells Fargo, they all get billions of dollars in fines almost every year because they're doing something shady. And that is because in civilization and humanity, there are bad people looking to do bad things. So it's not that the technology or the asset class is bad, but rather there needs to be proper regulations and we have to weed out the bad actors. Now one could argue it's not possible to weed out every bad actor because we don't know what's happening in the minds of people. We're not mind readers, but we at least have to have proper regulations. So when you see the likes of Gary Gensler and others who are anti -crypto, gaslighting and putting out sensationalized headlines, don't be dismayed and realize what's happening. They're trying to put out a narrative. And we know crypto is here to stay. There are a lot of folks building with the technology. Are there bad actors? Of course, just look at Sandbank -Meerfried, right? But Sandbank -Meerfried is crypto's Bernie Madoff. So you just see these things when you line up all markets, you see the bad actors and of course the good actors. So a great example here. Now folks, Michael Burry, the big short Michael Burry, apparently he is running some shorts here and it's at a market value of $1 .6 billion. Apparently he bought $890 million of the SPY puts, bought $740 million of the QQQ puts Now, we don't know what the expiration dates are on these. So we don't know what the timeline is here, but he's looking to short the stock market and we'll see how that works out because look, he was right with the 2008 mortgage backed security situation and everything that took place there. He was absolutely right, but he hasn't been right every time. And we'll see where this goes. But I think he's seeing something on the horizon that what many of us have been tracking, many analysts is that the stock market is retracing. I don't know if this is a move to all time highs. I honestly don't know. I took some profits recently because I'm like, I don't know. I'll walk away with some money on my stocks, but we'll see what happens. And, you know, as far as the stock market and we know Bitcoin and crypto has been correlated to it, you know, Bitcoin is at a pivotal moment right now. So one of analysts tweeted out sideways at $29K has run its course. So it's decision time for Bitcoin this week. Is our next significant move up or down? You all know. I'm hoping it's upwards. Right. I've been sharing a chart with you guys for over a year now where we've been following Bitcoin's retracement. You know, certainly it's going to be a roller coaster ride upwards, just like it was in 2019. Nothing goes up in a straight line. But boy, I hope there's another leg up that takes us to, you know, 40K plus. And that will be a nice retracement move, at which point I'll take some profits. But there's no guarantee of that. And right now, Bitcoin is still holding support here with this trend line. But boy, like I said, guys, I'm hoping for another move up. We'll see what the catalyst may be, maybe some bullish news, some other big player entered in the crypto market. But let's keep our eyes on this. Hopefully it's not a dump. All right, folks, we got some very huge Hedera HBAR news. You all know I hold HBAR in my portfolio. I am bullish on it. I continue to dollar cost average, you know, not financial advice. Please do your own research. So here's the headline. FedNow showcases DLT powered payment system as service provider. The United States Federal Reserve's instant payment system FedNow has added a company powered by the distributed ledger technology platform Hedera Hashgraph to its showcasing service providers. On August 14, FedNow's official website added DROPP, a micro payments platform built on Hedera to its FedNow service provider showcase section. The section aims to connect financial institutions and businesses with service providers that can help them innovate and implement instant payment products using the FedNow service. Folks, this is really huge. I mean, the Fed endorsing micro payments provider that is built on the Hedera blockchain. That is huge news. If you hold HBAR, remember, they don't necessarily have to be using the HBAR token, but we're talking about Metcalfe's law, network effects, right? The more building on a network, the more adoption, the more participants, the stronger the network becomes, the more valuable it also becomes. And of course, in this digital realm that we live in, in the token economy, the native token will increase in value, folks, because the tokens grease the blockchain, right, help to process and fund the blockchain. So this is huge news. I'm very, very bullish on HBAR. Once again, not financial advice. Please do your own research. According to the FedNow site, DROPP is a digital solution that was made so that merchants can accept payments at low cost. The company uses DLT and regulated banking tech to build its solution that allows merchants to accept payments without paying huge transaction fees. While the new updates seem like the Federal Reserve is warming up to the DLTs, the FedNow service also wrote on its website that materials are only presented as convenience to potential FedNow service participants. So huge news, folks. And remember, the folks who are part of the governing council for Hedera, their global governing council includes Boeing, Dell, Google, IBM, LG, ServiceNow, Standard Bank, much more huge, huge brands. This is one of the projects I think will come out of the whole speculation bubble and enter the utility phase and be one of the crypto blockchains that have lasting potential. So I'm very bullish on this. All right, let's move ahead. We got some updates here from Eric Balcones of Bloomberg around Cathie Wood's ARK Invest crypto ETFs. So he said new filing from ARK for a digital asset and blockchain thematic ETF will hold equities. So this is interesting. Cathie, we know she's trying to get a Bitcoin spot ETF. She's in line with BlackRock and the others, but they're also looking to build new ETFs, too. So here, Nate Geraci of the ETF store said, odd filing, given how saturated this space is. He's talking about the equity ETFs. Wonder if there is anything to read into here regarding ARK's confidence around spot Bitcoin approval, which if it happens, these blockchain ETFs would face an additional headwind in terms of competition. So maybe ARK is not that confident. So we shall see. Look, I think it's certainly almost guaranteed that BlackRock is going to get approved because of their record and because they pretty much run the world for the most part. But let's see what happens. There's no guarantees here, folks. And look, there could be a buy the rumor, sell the news event around these ETF approvals. So just be prepared for that. If an ETF is approved, that doesn't mean billions of dollars are coming in overnight. They have to set up the marketing, the structures. They have to get the RIA's onboarded, right? It doesn't happen overnight. They'll probably need a few months. If you look at the when the gold ETFs were approved, it didn't pump instantaneously. It pumped maybe like six months later the gold market. So something to keep in mind, folks, and, you know, know how to strategize. So I think there will be, once again, a buy the rumor, sell the news event. Now, quick word from our sponsor, and that is Uphold, which makes crypto investing easy. I've been using Uphold since twenty eighteen, one of my go to exchanges, so I can vouch for this platform. They have ten plus million users, two hundred and fifty plus crypto currencies, and they're available in one hundred and fifty countries. You can also trade precious metals and equities on this platform. If you'd like to learn more about Uphold, please visit the link in the description. All right, folks, let's move ahead because we got Jay Coward Clayton. Yes, former SEC chairman that I call a coward because he's the one who filed a lawsuit against Ripple and ran out the door the next day. He did not approve a Bitcoin spot ETF. And of course, we know he was doing some corruption in the back room with Bill Hinman and Ethereum to get them the free pass, nothing against Ethereum, but rather the SEC corruption, because guess what? These are the people who are supposed to have integrity. They're funded off our tax dollars and they're supposed to be stopping the bad guys, but they themselves are the bad guys doing fishy corruption in the back room, getting paid millions of dollars. So Jay, of course, making his biweekly appearance on CNBC Squawk Box this time, he was talking about Sandbag Refreed and of course, the Bitcoin spot ETF. And of course, the Joe Kernen, Becky Quick, Andrew Ross Sorkin and these folks failed to do their job. No questions about the Ripple ruling. Of course, there was no question when he came on the show, I think last week or the week before, because they're clearly and probably Jay doesn't want to answer anything and they're kowtowing to that. So it's pathetic. It is not how a journalist does their job trying to bury a story when the man who filed a lawsuit is sitting right in front of you. Right. And this ruling, we know how huge it is. Members of Congress are using it as a president to push their crypto bills through and much more so pathetic. Jay's a coward. And of course, he doesn't want to talk about it. Pathetic. They won't even ask him the question. It's not like they ask him the question. He's like, you know what? Good for Ripple, but I don't want to talk anymore. You know, it could have been that much. But guess what? No questions. Zero, zero questions. So, you know, there's a big cover up. There's a big Jay is just a coward. Like, don't even ask me that question. So screw Jay Clayton. He's a coward. Let's move ahead. Coinbase launches nonprofit to advance crypto legislation to stand with Crypto Alliance will prioritize supporting and advancing legislation in the US that supports the industry and investors. The stand with Crypto Alliance is something Coinbase obviously is trying to get going and they want you to participate and sign up. This is great, guys. We need need more of this, more advocacy, more education, more getting the word out there so that we can bring more folks together and unite against folks like Gary Gensler and corrupt bureaucrats and regulators like Gary Gensler. So the alliance is a 501 C for organization under the internal revenue service, meaning it is an exempt social welfare group. The current discussion around crypto policy in Washington, D .C., between centralized players and other big groups. Kara Calvert, Coinbase's head of US policy, said Monday during a Twitter Spaces event, but the stand with Crypto Alliance hopes to bring new voices into the picture. Here's a quote. The alliance completely embodies exactly what the crypto industry is all about. Calvert said it's all about decentralized efforts, decentralized power, decentralized access. And that's, I think, really what the stand with crypto movement is about. So this is great. I love it. I wish more crypto companies would unite and do this. And get the once again, the word out there. Education is a big key in D .C., getting our representatives educated about blockchain and crypto. We're seeing more and more bipartisan support for crypto. So our efforts are paying off, but we need to do more, of course. Now, folks, there's some interesting news coming out of Argentina. So pro Bitcoin candidate Triumph sees Bitcoin reach historic high against Argentinian peso. So we got a presidential candidate. I honestly don't know much about this person, but, you know, a lot of people are bullish on this because his name is Javier Mele, if I'm saying that right, won the country's primary presidential race. He's pro Bitcoin. And we know the folks there are dealing with insane inflation. Many have been moving to Bitcoin as a store of value, as well as stable coins. So hopefully, you know, some things could happen here where they can maybe make Bitcoin a legal tender, something along those lines like El Salvador. But there is something else happening in the mix here. So Mele's unexpected triumph is seen as a rejection of Argentina's entrenched political establishment. The pro Bitcoin candidate became anti establishment after proposing the dollarization of the economy and call for the abolishment of the central bank due to the country's economic woes. So they want to certainly use the US dollar over the Argentinian peso. And I don't blame them. So this could be a really big move. And once again, this guy's pro Bitcoin. So let's see where it goes. Moving ahead, new indictment alleges Sam Bankman -Fried gave more than $100 million to politicians. Bankman -Fried and his associates donated across party lines to various candidates and political action committees. Boy, look, I am not a conspiracy theorist, but man, this guy donated a lot of money and it's probably why he's been getting the easy path, right? Being able to stay at home in his parents' house. And obviously recently they were like, no, dude, you're trying to, you know, game the system. He released Caroline Ellison's diary. So witness tampering and all that. And they were like, all right, we're going to put you in jail. So that's a good thing. He's in jail. But look, there are some people saying he could have an Jeffrey Epstein situation, if you know what I mean. And that wouldn't surprise me, folks. This man has a lot of dirt on politicians. He made them all look like fools, right? And that's, I've often talked about it. Optics is a big thing in politics. It's narratives and optics. So right now he's not making a lot of people look good and they want him gone. As you can imagine, like get the hell out of here, whether it be in jail or you know what else. So it looks like they may try to bring back some of the campaigns, finance charges that had been previously dropped, but we shall see what happens. And hopefully, you know, he sits in jail for a long time because he committed the crime folks. He's the one that was committing fraud. He's the one that was okaying funds, leaving FTX and going to Alameda, which was his firm. They were trading that money and losing it. So straight up fraud, as I said earlier in the podcast, he's the Bernie Madoff of crypto. But let's hope justice is served here and we'll follow this as it continues. Now, here's some not so good news. Coindesk lays off 45 % of editorial staff as an eyes deal to sell company. Look, it's not so much that they laid people off, but it's in conjunction with what else has been happening with Digital Currency Group. So Digital Currency Group owns Grayscale, Coindesk, Genesis Trading and much more. And we all know what has been happening with the Genesis Trading and Gemini situation. So Barry Silbert and these guys, it's not looking good. And I would not be invested or involved in anything Digital Currency Group, guys. If you're holding Grayscale shares, just be careful. I don't know what's happening here with this whole parent group and they could be in big trouble. So especially with the Genesis Trading situation and who knows if there's going to be cross contamination, the fact that Genesis Trading is in a hole and they are going to have to pull money and sell Coindesk and all these things, it's just a mess. So I don't think these guys are running the business well. Once again, it doesn't have anything specific to do with the blockchains or the crypto currencies, but rather, you know, the risks that you take and how you run your business. So we shall see. Finally, guys, our partner, Quorium, and I highly recommend you check out this blockchain. It is a third generation blockchain. They announced here new wallet integration. Frontier is now supporting the Quorium mainnet, prioritizing security through real time fraud prevention. It says Frontier Wallet offers a swap aggregator and cross chain bridges, a key partner to manage Quorium assets effectively. So once again, guys, check out Quorium. They're doing some great things and they got a new wallet support here. And I personally hold a Quorium tokens, not financial advice. Please do your own research. As always, don't blindly invest because you hear me holding a token or somebody else, any influencer or any YouTube or a podcast or whatever it may be, always do your research. So definitely check out Quorium. They're doing some great things. All right, folks, that's the news. Let me know what you think. Leave your thoughts and comments below, hit the thumbs up button and leave a five star rating on the podcast platforms. And I'll talk to you all later. Bye.
A highlight from 1370: Why You MUST Own at least 1 Bitcoin - Jack Mallers
"Welcome, everyone. In today's episode, I'm going to be breaking down the latest technical analysis, as well as MicroStrategy marks three years of holding Bitcoin with four and a half billion dollars in Bitcoin and company stock, literally up two hundred and ten plus percent. We'll also be discussing PayPal executive says that their new stablecoin will be made available for DeFi in the future, as well as Bitcoin as a ticking time bomb set for historic expansion, as rare indicator sends a signal. I'll be breaking this down for you. We'll also be discussing breaking news of fun. Strad investor note says Bitcoin can hit one hundred and eighty thousand dollars before the upcoming block reward, having scheduled for April of twenty twenty four. We'll also be discussing the top reasons why the Bitcoin price will smash a million dollars per coin, as well as why you must own at least one Bitcoin right now. We'll also be taking a look at the overall crypto market, all this plus so much more in today's show. What's good, crypto fam? This is first and foremost, a video show. So if you want the full premium experience with video, visit my rumble channel at CryptoNewsAlerts .net. Again, that's Crypto News Alerts .net. And welcome, everyone. Just tuning in. This is Pod episode number thirteen hundred and seventy. I'm your host, JV. Today is August 13th, twenty twenty three. Kicking off today's episode here with our market watch, we can see Bitcoin still holding strong onto twenty nine thousand four hundred, but slightly consolidating for the day. We also have Ether barely back in the green, trading above eighteen hundred and fifty dollars, along with BNB and XRP also in the green. And checking out CoinMarketCap .com, the current crypto market cap sits at one point one seven trillion dollars, with about 17 billion in volume in the past twenty four hours, with the Bitcoin dominance at forty eight point seven percent and the Ether dominance at eighteen point nine percent. And checking out the top one hundred crypto gainers in the past twenty four hours, we have room lead in the pack up twelve percent, trading at a dollar thirty seven, followed by a ton up about seven percent, trading at a dollar forty three, followed by Pepe up four and a half percent and checking out the top one hundred crypto gainers for the past week. Mostly, I'd say we got a few in the green, but also probably equally as much in the red. Some of the biggest losers include Koss and Bone, with some of the top gainers for the day, the same as the week with Tun, Rune and Pepe. And checking out the Crypto Greed and Fear Index, we're currently rated a fifty four neutral, same as yesterday. Last week was a forty nine and last month was a sixty in greed. So there you have it. How many of you are currently bullish on the king crypto and have been taking advantage of this recent dip? Let me know in the comments right down below. And now let's dive into today's Bitcoin technical analysis and see what's happened with the continuous sideways trading action. Most of the alts are also quiet today on Sunday, similar to how they perform yesterday on Saturday, except for Rune and Tun taking the lead. Now, the past few weeks went in a rather unventful fashion for typically more volatile crypto asset. This past Monday saw some movements as Bitcoin dipped below twenty nine thousand to mark the weekly low. However, it went on an offensive almost immediately and had surged past thirty thousand by the time Wednesday came. But that was short lived. More volatility was expected on Thursday when the US CPI numbers were set to come out. Yet that wasn't the case. Bitcoin remained at just under thirty thousand, where it had retrace hours just before that. And then the following days were quite stagnant. Once again, Bitcoin stood still within the same tight range of between twenty nine and twenty nine five. And expectedly, the weekend didn't provide anything different, given the typically lower trading volume. So there you have it. I mean, it's been very boring sideways trading action. Nothing new. But I feel once we can break thirty two, we're likely to continue marching on up, breaking the annual high. And there's not much resistance between thirty two and forty. So do keep that in mind as well. Now for the latest regarding the first publicly traded company to put Bitcoin on their balance sheet, which is MicroStrategy. They're still holding their four and a half billion dollars worth of BTC. Let's break this down. As you can see here, it's been three years since MicroStrategy first accumulated their BTC. Michael Saylor spearheaded the strategy of making Bitcoin their primary Treasury Reserve asset, directing the firm to buy twenty one thousand four hundred and fifty four BTC for two hundred and fifty million at an individual price of roughly eleven thousand six hundred dollars on August 11th of 2020. That's when it all began. Now, in the up and down years since MicroStrategy continued to consistently invest in the top crypto asset, becoming the largest institutional holder of Bitcoin. And as of July 31st, the firm holds one hundred and fifty two thousand eight hundred BTC acquired for a total cost of roughly four and a half billion dollars at an average individual price of twenty nine thousand six hundred and seventy two. So they're roughly at their break even point. Interestingly enough, now Saylor was MicroStrategy's chief executive when the company first bought Bitcoin, but now serves as its executive chair after stepping back from the CEO role last year. The MicroStrategy stock is up more than two hundred and ten percent since August 10th. So keep that in mind. And that since 2020, the day before it made the announcement to purchase Bitcoin, MicroStrategy is currently priced at three hundred and eighty four dollars per share, according to Market Watch. And it hasn't been an entirely smooth ride. However, keep in mind, MicroStrategy is down more than 70 percent from the three year high of eleven or one thousand three fifteen, which it hit on February 9th of twenty twenty one, referring to the stock right as Bitcoin was in the midst of that ascendant bull run. And in June of twenty twenty two, MicroStrategy faced concerns it would receive a margin call on a Bitcoin backed loan, though those fears never materialized and seemed to be nothing more than FUD. And in a margin call, a trader or investor is required to put up more funds to avert the closure or liquidation of a leveraged position. And I think when those FUD rumors were coming out, Michael Saylor said unless the Bitcoin price dips all the way to three thousand, we are not getting liquidated because they had more assets to back it. So it was nothing more than FUD at the end of the day. But very interesting. I think MicroStrategy will continue being one of the largest huddlers of Bitcoin in the world. They're second in line to Grayscale, which controls over four hundred thousand BTC. And at this time being there's no spot Bitcoin ETF in the United States. The next best closest thing is to owning MicroStrategy stock. And of course, Michael Saylor is very bullish on that. Now, let's discuss the latest regarding the PayPal stablecoin, which is titled PYUSD. They've been announcing some plans for DeFi. And we also had some analysts recently come out predicting due to the launch of the PayPal stablecoin because their audience is so large, hundreds of millions of people that use PayPal on a regular basis, active users, that it can send the Bitcoin price to a quarter million dollars per coin. That was a prediction from Charlie Shrem. I covered a few episodes ago. If you missed that, be sure to check that out. Now, an insider from PayPal says the firm's new stablecoin will ultimately launch on DeFi platforms sometime in the future. In the new interview on the Unchained Pod, Jose Fernandez, PayPal's senior vice president of blockchain, crypto and digital currencies, told the host Laura Shin that the firm intends for their stablecoin, which was launched earlier in the month, to be available on crypto exchanges and compatible with the DeFi ecosystems, quoting them here. I think DeFi will be a part of the first wave in the sense that we want to go where crypto users are using stable coins today and DeFi as a use case for that. So as of today, you can only get the PYUSD on the PayPal wallet. We are ramping up the product, but definitely the intention is that it will be available in the main exchanges. And when the distribution is available, then the folks will be able to use it for the traditional use cases. The Ponte goes on to share that their stablecoin is already compatible with Ethereum wallets as it is technically an ERC20 token, ultimately meaning on the Ethereum blockchain, and that it's fully backed in compliance with New York regulations. Quoting him again, the stablecoin PYUSD is an ERC20 token. It's deployed on the Ethereum blockchain and it can be sent outside to wallets that enable ERC20 tokens. Now, there is definitely an aspect of it that has to do with being fully backed and regulated as a stablecoin. As you know, we are issued out of New York. Paxos is the issuer and the token is approved by the New York Department of Financial and Security New York has very clear and strict requirements in terms of KYC, know your customer, and anti -money laundering provisions that require the ability to be able to have the right control in place. So there you have it. And to watch this entire interview, they did check the show notes below the video in the description. I will give you a little disclaimer. I do not trust PayPal as far as I can throw them. I had a lot of people ask me, where can I get the stablecoin? It seems currently only available on PayPal, but I wouldn't be holding it. I'd prefer the real thing, which is Bitcoin the only decentralized crypto asset because PayPal, just as they can freeze your funds and freeze your PayPal account. They've done that to me before in the past, probably like a decade ago back in the day. They could also freeze your stablecoin the same way because all it is is a digital version of the dollar. So that's not so enticing or exciting to me. But the reason it's fruitful and bullish for the entire industry, it can help usher in that mass adoption, considering PayPal has hundreds of millions of active use active users. That's why this is a pretty bullish story. But anyways, now let's talk about the ticking time bomb, followed by one hundred and eighty thousand dollar prediction from Fundstrat at the time of the halving less than nine months away. And then I'll be sharing the latest and greatest from the one and only Jack Mallers and why you should own a Bitcoin and why the Bitcoin price is trending towards seven figures. Let's break it down. And yeah, if you're just joining us, make sure to say hello in the live chat. Don't be a stranger, as this is a live and interactive show. But yeah, let's break this story down. As you can see, while he followed analysts as Bitcoin is gearing up for a historic move to the upside, now that has rarely seen the indicator has flash. This anonymous analyst known as Credible Crypto shares that Bitcoin is going through a period of record low volatility or a compression phase, which he says will ultimately lead to historic expansion. Send it. Let's go. He shares a chart, which you can see here, along with fellow analyst tech dev who points out that Bitcoin's three week chart is approaching compression levels that previously signaled the start of the bull markets since 2012. Quoting credible here, historic compression leads to historic expansion. Imagine looking at this chart and thinking, yeah, ten thousand dollars incoming, a ticking time bomb till bear extinction. BTC. That's what's up. Now, while many Bitcoin bulls have lost confidence due to the Bitcoin uneventful price action, credible says Bitcoin is simply consolidating, which should be considered bullish, quoting him again, seeing a lot of if we are so bullish, why aren't we moving up? The bulls don't have the strength to push the price higher. This is bearish. But when the price is moving sideways, it means that neither bears nor bulls are in the driver's seat. Consolidation is, by definition, neutral buyers and sellers have reached an equilibrium. Now, nine out of ten times consolidation structures resolve in the direction of the trend that preceded them. We have been in a very clean, obvious uptrend since fifteen thousand dollars. So by default, then one should expect this consolidation over the last month to resolve to the upside. And he continues, your default stance on Bitcoin here should be bullish, in my opinion, unless we start breaking bullish market structure. For example, the first and lowest timeframe level of the bullish market structure that matters is twenty four eight marked, as you can see here in this chart. So there you have it. How many of you agree with credible crypto aren't currently bullish, even though the price action seems boring and continues to trade sideways? Let me know your honest thoughts in the comments right down below, which leads us to our next story of the day. That's Fundstrat's prediction of one hundred and eighty thousand dollar Bitcoin price by the time of the next halving, keeping in mind that halving is scheduled to be sometime in April 2024, virtually meaning less than nine months away. Let's break this down and shut up to Tom Lee over at Fundstrat. So I actually shared this in a tweet here this morning. Fundstrat investor note says Bitcoin could hit one hundred and eighty thousand before the upcoming block reward halving in April of twenty twenty four. And also interesting, an Indian analyst thinks that World War Three had already begun expecting the BRICS economic bloc to merge with the Shanghai Corporation Organization. And also it is shared that the financial services company attributes this projected five hundred and twenty one percent Bitcoin price hike from the current levels to the rising demand fueled mainly by the anticipated approval of a Bitcoin ETF, which I know is on everyone's mind. We know there's literally hundreds of trillions of dollars in the total addressable market, much of which can be come in pouring directly into BTC. So let's break down some more of these numbers. Fundstrat's and Pharrell's projections follow the mid -July forecast from the banking giant Standard Chartered. And guess who is the primary shareholder of Standard Chartered? You guessed it, BlackRock fam. They predict one hundred and twenty thousand dollar Bitcoin price by the end of next year in twenty twenty four. Now, Pharrell's analysis points to a Bitcoin ETF potentially adding an extra hundred million dollars in daily demand. I honestly feel that is conservative, but hey, now why the impending halving will slash the daily mining rewards down to a mere twelve million, quoting them here with a spot Bitcoin ETF launch daily demand will reach one hundred and twenty five million while the daily supply is only twenty five million. The implicit equilibrium price would need to increase so that the daily supply matches the daily demand. Now, equilibrium analysis suggests a clearing price of one hundred and forty to one hundred and eighty thousand per BTC before the halving in April of twenty twenty four. And moreover, Fundstrat envisions the possibility for a BlackRock Bitcoin ETF to become one of the most monumental ETF launches ever. Let's go. Possibly outstripping the QQQ ETF's thirty six billion in first year inflows. I think we crush it personally. The firm is of the opinion that Bitcoin ETF assets might outshine precious metal ETFs one hundred percent. Now that's a market worth two hundred and thirty billion dollars and eventually become a category worth more than three hundred billion. That's a given, right? However, approval for a spot Bitcoin ETF could enable manipulation akin to allegations about precious metal ETFs like gold and silver. A physically backed Bitcoin ETF is expected to boost crypto adoption as well as the prices. There is a chance it could mimic the gold and silver and allowing leverage of fictional supplies Bitcoin to manage futures positions, a .k .a. through derivatives. Now, when the price rises too fast, this imaginary Bitcoin supply could be dumped to tamp the global prices down. But for a while now, Fundstrat has been prophesizing a leap into the six digit territory as far as the Bitcoin price action, though these bold predictions have yet to materialize. Also, keep in mind, back in May of twenty twenty one, David Grider, the firm's chief digital asset strategist, confidently asserted that the target Bitcoin price of one hundred thousand per coin remained intact. Send it. He further envisioned Ethereum scaling to ten thousand per coin, reflecting on the broader crypto landscape. Grider's perspective from two years prior foresaw the entire crypto economy accelerating towards a staggering five trillion dollar milestone. So there you have it. Let me know if you agree or disagree with Fundstrat and their analysts that the Bitcoin price is likely to hit that target of between one hundred and twenty twenty four. That Bitcoin halving in April of twenty twenty four, that would obviously be the calm before the storm. And could you imagine the BlackRock Bitcoin ETF virtually being approved pre halving? That's going to send Bitcoin to a whole new stratosphere, in my humble opinion. I predict that we hit the peak cycle high in twenty twenty five, just considering the history doesn't necessarily repeat, but often tends to rhyme. And I remember the Bitcoin halving of twenty sixteen. It was the year following in twenty seventeen. We hit the high for that cycle of roughly twenty thousand. Then like clockwork four years later from the twenty sixteen halving in twenty twenty, we had the next halving and the following year Bitcoin hit the current all time high of sixty nine thousand. Hence, I'm predicting a multiple six figure Bitcoin price by twenty twenty five. Let me know if you agree or disagree in the comments below. And like I said, I'll read everyone's comments out loud at the end of the show. And with that being shared, fam, now let's discuss our final breaking story of the day. Jack recently Mallers did a podcast episode on his new podcast, Shout Out to Jack. I transcribed it because I find it very valuable. He was also interviewed on CNBC and talks about how hyperinflation will send the Bitcoin price to a million dollars. So here's some of the highlights and my transcription from his interview I have to share with you and then we'll dive into our live Q &A. So here we go. Here's what Jack Mallers had to share in this interview. If silver is going to 1000 X, I will walk into my kitchen right now and I will melt all of my silverware and I will sell it at market. If gold is going to rally, Elon Musk will find more on Mars. This is a super important point. Bitcoin is the only monetary instrument in the history of our species that is fixed. It does not matter how much more demand comes into the asset class because no one will ever be able to make more than it. There are two things I can guarantee you in my life. Number one, that I'll die. And number two, there will only ever be 21 million Bitcoin. And those are the two things that I could only value, which is my life and my Bitcoin. So it is the only fixed supply asset. It is not that complicated. It's going to go up because everything else can be issued more. The only thing that is clear to us and clear to our customers is that you cannot hold and save in dollars anymore. I think there is going to be a new era of the US dollar where inflation will enter and normalize 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 percent. The days of 2 percent inflation are over. The Fed really blew this thing up. You can call it inflation because the CPI is low to nonsense, right? Like the government is going to tell me how the dollar is inflating based upon a basket of instruments like my Netflix subscription or my Caesar salad doesn't actually tell me how well the dollar is doing or how much it's being devalued. Miami real estate does. Bitcoin does. Bitcoin is up over 50 percent this year. You're telling me the dollar isn't inflating. You're out of your mind. I am not listening to that. The Fed and the whole monetary system is based on trust and they constantly, they constantly break that trust. Preach. It would be the equivalent to there's a fire outside of my house. I smell the smoke and someone tells me, no, no, no, no. It's a bunch of teenagers putting on a bonfire. OK, but I hear one police siren. Are you sure it's a bonfire? Yeah, yeah, yeah. It's a bonfire. Now I hear 10 sirens, 100 sirens. My whole community is running out. I'm not going to get up and look outside the window and see what's going on. I don't believe them for a second. You have to be absolutely crazy to believe the Federal Reserve right now. They are full of it. And I don't have to because I own Bitcoin. There is no one that can deflate my instrument. I get to hold it, save in it. I know the monetary policy. I sleep like a baby, like the baby face that I am. I think you are crazy to believe the Fed and these swap lines and treating these assets at par. It is a gimmick. It is a scam. Very powerful words coming from Jack Mallers. Let me know if you agree or disagree. And as you can see, this post is going viral over on X. So be sure to share it and repost it. I greatly appreciate that. Now for some other thoughts regarding predictions coming from Jack Mallers as well. When he was speaking with CNBC's Power Lunch with Kelly Evans, the strike CEO discussed the role of Bitcoin in the ongoing banking crisis. And Mallers is convinced that the Bitcoin price will hit one million dollars per coin fueled by global hyperinflation. According to Mallers, the Fed has tarnished its name by printing more money to save the banking industry, despite claims to reduce inflation to 2 % as I just shared with you. And as such, Mallers expects the Bitcoin price to continue with higher demand and Mallers reiterated the fact that there will only ever be 21 million Bitcoin units, despite the increase in demand. Now, notably Mallers bashed the altcoin industry for being centralized with founders holding massive coins at the expense of the secondary market. And as such, Mallers thinks that altcoins are suitable for speculation and should ultimately be used to accumulate more BTC. Quoting him again here, my overall opinion is that the name of the game is to accumulate as much Bitcoin as possible. The alts are interesting, but a lot more speculative. I use them to accumulate more BTC. So there you have it. Let me know if you agree or disagree with Jack Mallers and his thoughts, what he had to share. Do you think that global hyperinflation will likely send the Bitcoin price thriving to seven figures per coin?

This is podcast episode number 1360. Let's kick off today's show with our market watch. As you can see right here in your screen, Bitcoin back in the green, trading at 29 ,300, up 0 .4 % for the day, with Ethereum also in the green, trading at 1 ,844 bucks. Now checking out coinmarketcap .com. The current crypto market cap stands at 1 .17 trillion, with just over 28 billion in volume in the past 24 hours, with the Bitcoin dominance at 48 .7%, back on the rise, with the Ether dominance at 19 % even. And checking out the top 100 crypto gainers in the past 24 hours, you can see XDC leading the pack up 12 .5%, trading just above $0 .08, followed by Optimism up 7%, trading at $1 .74, followed by Curved Out Token up 5%, trading just above $0 .60. And checking out the top 100 crypto gainers for the past week, we have XDC, PLS, and HEX currently in the green, while a lot of the major alts are currently still correcting and in the red. And checking out coinmarketcap .com, one of my favorite indicators, I mean the crypto green and fear index, my apologies. You can see we're currently rated a 52, which is neutral. Yesterday was a 53, last week a 51, and last month a 64 in greed. So there you have it. And those just joining us, let me know you can see and hear me loud and clear. Be sure to comment in the live chat, as I'll be monitoring the live chat on my phone throughout this live stream. And with that being shared, let's kick off today's show with Bitcoin technical analysis now that we completed the market watch. And then we'll dive right into the war against Bitcoin, and while no Bitcoin content creators are safe on YouTube, as I've officially been permanently banned for the rest of my life From that platform, we're going to be diving deep into why that is. And we have a whole lot to share regarding what's going on in the markets naturally as we do each and every day, seven days a week. So the show must go on. Let's kick it off. As you can see here, checking out the Bitcoin charts, Bitcoin dipped below 29 ,000 this morning, August 3rd, as the market concerns over the largest global exchange Binance reignited Bitcoin price downside. Data from Cointelegraph and TradingView showed Bitcoin heading lower before a modest come back into the Wall Street open. Rumors over new U .S. legal action against Binance made for a disappointing 24 hours for the Bitcoin bulls after a brief trip above 30 G's. It's like we're struggling to maintain above 30 G's, right? With the trading range still firmly in place, monitoring resource material indicators forecast a further bearish support retests to come. As shared right here, want to know what changed on the Bitcoin daily chart in the U .S. overnight hours? According to trend precognition algos, the probability of a downside move in the daily timeframe increased from 75 % to 84%, expecting a test of support at the trend line. And he also says if you're surprised, confused, or think the bidirectional volatility is over, you haven't been paying attention. And quoting popular trader Dan Crypto Trades, the past few weeks have been all the same. Number one, price grinds down. Number two, shorts get aggressive. Number three, shorts get squeezed. Price goes up. Number four, spots start selling. And number five, the price rolls over, rinse and repeat, until spot starts bidding after these squeezes. We'll just keep doing these full retraces. That's right. And quoting Crypto Quant, I have heard about the bank run insolvency risk on Binance 100 times for the year, but their usual balances always tell a different story. And as outlined right here alongside these charts, now Bitcoin volatility prepares to undercut stocks, including gold. So let's discuss this. According to the Bitcoin Historical Volatility Index, weekly volatility was headed towards record lows seen at the start of this year of 2023. As outlined here in the Bitcoin Historical Volatility Index one -week chart, this chimes with existing comparisons to January with the Bollinger Bands data, likewise echoing the period immediately prior to Bitcoin's quarter one breakout. Here's what Dylan LeClair had to share on crypto Twitter. I should say X crypto or crypto X, now that it's no longer Twitter, just FYI, 10 -day realized volatility for Bitcoin near the falling below average of stocks, bonds and gold. So there you frickin' have it. With that being shared, fam, welcome again to y 'all just joining us and tuning in. Now I want to discuss being banned permanently for life from YouTube. I created my YouTube channel initially almost six years ago. I think it was back in 2018 when I relocated from Florida to Puerto Rico and I started posting content virtually every day. I had roughly 1 ,800 videos which took roughly six years of content creation, which got me above 56 ,000 subscribers. And as many of you know from the previous episodes, I woke up and it was all gone. Without warning, without any strikes, I just woke up to an email saying YouTube ultimately terminated my account. So I went through the appeal process, which is how it works. You get to appeal and I put in my appeal and they basically said they reviewed the appeal and they aren't going to change their mind. They said I am now banned permanently for life. So here are some of the tweets I've recently shared on X so you can see what is going on behind closed doors and then we'll dive further into the news stories here in the crypto market. But this is more relevant than ever because after having this platform called YouTube for six years, I no longer have that platform. I have been ghosted as if crypto news alerts never existed over the course of the past six years. Also, let me know how that makes you feel. Shout out to Zap Crypto Cow. If you get a frozen screen, all you need to do is refresh and it should work for you just FYI. I appreciate the support from everybody. Much love and much respect. So here we go. Let's dive into what happened. So I shared this morning on X. It is official. My YouTube termination is permanent. Team YouTube claims they made the right call without providing me with any evidence of any violations because they are full of it. This is a direct matrix attack against Bitcoin content creators. Simple and plain. I also asked them, yo, Team YouTube, the least you can do is give me all my videos back temporarily. An example, maybe for 24 hours so I could at least sync them over to Rumble. Let me know if you're willing to do that and which they are not willing to do. Just FYI. I also shared there is a war against Bitcoin content creators on YouTube. I know from firsthand experience being terminated under false pretenses after almost six years of dedicated content consisting of eighteen hundred videos, they terminated me without warning. However, the same content over the years has been syndicated on every major podcasting platform and never once have I violated any policies on any platform for creating harmful and dangerous content as they allege. I believe I was targeted by YouTube because of the purity of my content. An example, my devout faith in Bitcoin and my disgust towards the central bankers and forces of evil. I teach my followers to unplug from the matrix, opt out of the corrupt fiat money system and resist the slave mine. This is why I am perceived as a threat to the powers that be. So there you have it. I also shared it only took me five years and eighteen hundred videos to grow my YouTube channel, which was terminated at five a .m. three days ago under false pretenses for allegedly repeated violations of harmful and dangerous policy, which is false. Speaking about Bitcoin considered harmful and dangerous now, what the heck? And I wrote for the record, my YouTube username is Crypto News Alerts and never once have I ever received a violation, a strike or a warning for violating any YouTube policies. I share crypto news seven days per week in a live stream format. I have never produced any harmful or dangerous content. And then this morning I wrote, I was told that I would get a response to my appeal. And then they said, hey, if you missed it, we replied right here. So here's what they wrote in case you missed it. Let's see. They wrote this. I'm going to click on it. They're claiming I violated this policy. So let's read the policy and what the heck it says. I'm going to refresh here.

Biden Education Sec. Cardona: Parents Shouldn't Be 'Primary Stakeholder' In Their Kids' Education
"What if i told you that. The head of the department of education of our government. The head of the department of education was asked a very simple and clear question. Now if you don't know who the education secretary is probably why you're having a wonderful day. His name is miguel. Cardona man is a collectivist. He does not believe in parent's rights. But this shows a preview in to where the ruling class and the ruling laugh. Wanna bring our country now traditionally the american project and the american way of life was based on a bond of parents with children but the state does not have a right to break that bond. But you see the firewall that has been built against to talibanism. That is protecting. Liberty is the american family and they wanna destroy play. Cut eighteen education secretary. Miguel cardona when asked directly won't say whether or not the parents are the primary stakeholders in a kid's education play tape. Do you think parents should be in charge of their child's education. As the primary stakeholder. I believe parents are important. Stakeholders educators have a role in determining educational programming important stakeholders but he says well educators teachers. They're on an equal footing as parents. We see this happening in a variety. Different ways in our education system where parents are sending their kids to government schools and they actually end up being less parents and more auxiliaries of their children's
Breaking Down What Happened in Arizona
"Wanna tell you though from the point of view of somebody like me right listening to you talk. I just think. I'm i'm more confused than ever in other words. There's so much here we've never seen anything like this. Normally it's it's simple right. It's like there's this many votes and this many votes and they're waiting for the absentee ballots and that's coming on wednesday and then on wednesday you get this is. This is complicated. And whenever anything's complicated. I mean i literally remember when i was a kid watergate. Remember enough of it to think like this is complicated. Some people are tuning out. What's going on so on something like this. Let's say somebody says okay. I believe you. The question is what options do we have now. In other words. I watched a bunch of or your videos rape people like you and i said this is clearly not over. So what happens now okay. It's very it's actually complicated but yet simple okay. What came out of. Arizona is what could have been done in three to four weeks of forensic audit took months and months and they still don't have everything done because of the obstructionist that were there but those arizona. Then those guys are fighters right. But now the attorney general of arizona said there were crimes committed and the state. Legislatures are upset. They were lied to if slightly. Legislators were lied to and if correctly. I heard career if i heard this correctly this morning. I'm not sure who is speaking.

Don't need the perfect pack. I remember i was like you that i was on with with my everley stock and it was a right away. It was like okay. I need a better pack. That was not the Stock isn't a good pack. But it wasn't good for what they use. I was i had it for right. So finding you know you and you can upgrade that stuff down the road so yeah just a matter of stopping the boots and pack on and get out in the field and getting atmosphere and the searing gear. He doesn't have to break the bank. Share your ear and And that'll cut down the fun. And it's incredible you don't need. All top of the line closed some necessities. Good rain gear like you see boots a pack and And your spotter and you can share. You can share every other year so it's really in the scheme of things snow different than the west coast trail or you know for the for the stuff you have. It's the same gear besides a rifle a in a spotter. Your and there's so many up on a hiking off the highway. You can look for a lot of hikers do it. In the summer they're not hunters at all. But you could even spend the summer and go and hike hike with your wife or something and then keep your eyes open for good sheep mountains and do that yeah You know it was interesting this fall. I had a goat draw in region three. And that's where all my research game from was the backpack groups And guys were posted. Guys and girls were posting pictures of their trip. And they're like. Oh here's a picture amount goats like oh and they had the coordinates on there right so all my research in that zone. I talked to some guys that you had been around there. Maybe known about it or known. People that hunted it. But the best resource i had was these backpacking groups. Now is down south region three obviously region six in region seven. You probably would not have that luxury but it was a fantastic resource for something unique. Because i'd never had that kind of information but started googling the area with the mountains and stuff like oh. Yeah you know literally showing billy's on the mountain and and with the coordinates on. How good does that get right. Yeah no that was the internet's your friend. I know it's ruined a lot of stuff too but An open it all out but it can definitely your friend. Yeah and i think it goes the same way for gear to like a lot of guys like. Oh what does this guy user. What does that guy us. There's a lot of non-hunting brands that have equipment that you can use right like in one of the best Out there like obviously we got a huge range now. We're so fortunate that we've got the sick of the world. We got the coups of the world. We got the glaciers. The world that are making hunting centric equipment or we didn't have that twenty years ago and there were great manufacturers out there like architects and stuff like that were making really good quality gear. Right so you know. That's another thing you don't need to have a rain jacket or you don't need to have You know some of this is hunting centric..

Hey we've got a couple couple lakes here that don't have a lot of people in which is probably where you wanna go on your sheep wanting right so I think that's great advice that you suggested there is that list and find out where to go and then start talking to guys and say hey you know any any good lakes that you've you've been into or any areas you've been into and That's what i found with. The the society is the shows are great for talking to guys right. You know you just you know. As a general people are market. Next is on the map for you. But they're talking about great areas they bit into or were they killed the ram. And you know if there's been rams killed their you know their sheep so it's probably a good area to get into for sure. So yeah that's nuts right. Yeah and with all the maps on google earth and you know and the internet you can pretty much tell which ones will be just strictly moose and which ones i got some good mountains close by that you just got to put in your put in the work to to get to where the sheep spots are.

It's been their first time to write or are they always been somebody that's always been under previous sheep on. I know your son. Obviously i thought was with you but How does that work. Yeah two or three have been there for their first times. And then you see off is kind of like jack. Connors is either. Love it or you're going to really hate it but Yeah and not everybody have gone with. I keep hunting with either. Some guys have clashed with. We have just just different mind frames. Which doesn't mean you know. It doesn't mean they're bad just means they want to different way than i wanna hunt but sheep hunting partners when it comes to pushing it to the next level expanding the night on the mountain. They are few and far between and i've been lucky. Got two or three great guys and my son of course which is taken to really well which is fantastic for me. Yeah that's awesome. So we he hunt with you this year. Obviously if you get that dull draw you're gonna be in the tat for that but aside from that if will you take him on hunt as well. In addition to to that. Yeah this year a hopefully take him on a jet boat up. The moscow woah. This year does. He hasn't experienced the jetboat ride so i want to show how fun that is you know. He's done the horrible hiking in the long hike. So this be another added thing that i'd like to do with my son so i'll definitely take on that if not it'll be a goat hunt or probably the sheep in the area as well right on. Okay so let's talk a little bit about that. He mentioned the jetboat so obviously for for guys on their first hunter. Even guys that have been on hans there. There's the hike in off the highway. Stuff the hardcore. Throw your hike for two days before you get hunting There's a jetboat up the the moscow or variety of other big rivers and bc Fly in trip We've got Horseback obviously there's a local besir If you've got the dough Hire guide outfitter that's That's a very very successful way.

Game who am i in the statement is i'm eighteen guancai say and i like it but then your mind would jump to the alice cooper song at least mine did get an answer is i'm the eighteenth day of the new year also the month of january but that's not quite as important as being the eighteenth day of the new year and i got a question for you by the way this is episode eighteen long. So my question for you is what have you accomplished. You've had eighteen days. That's over two weeks coming up on three weeks before you know it. What have you accomplished. what have you got done. Have you set some plans in place. I know i have. Have you had a chance to do some thinking some out of the box thinking some innovation that you wouldn't have done otherwise i know i have.
