A highlight from FTX Saga Finally Over! SBF Found Guilty | Bitcoin + Macro Economy Update
"All right, let's dive into a little bit of what's happening in the crypto markets today. Obviously, SPF in the news. We'll talk about how maybe that will affect or could affect some things within the crypto market itself. It's going to be a good one. My name is Paul Baron. We'll come back into Tech Path before we get started thanking our sponsor, and that is iTrust Capital. We'll get into your own self -directed crypto IRA. This is one of the places you can do it. And they've got a lot happening over there. You can get into everything from Bitcoin to Ethereum, along with a ton of altcoins. Or you can go into gold and silver. Now 200 ,000 accounts, $7 billion in transactions. This is a great place to start. If you guys want to use our link down below, you'll get a $100 funding reward. Just use that and you can kind of get started over there. Let's lead off here. I want to kind of jump to a story here. On the jobs report, which just came out, soft jobs report fails to dampen the Bitcoin enthusiasm. And of course, Bitcoin's still holding its own. Many people looked at this and said, well, maybe there's going to be some market adjustments down. And really, if you look at some of the details within this, Bitcoin obviously a little bit flat right now, but the key here is 150 ,000 non -farm jobs in October, less than the fact set that everybody was forecasting, which was 180. So unemployment rose to 3 .9, which is up slightly. Now, remember Chair Powell has been holding rates as they are for the Fed front rate. A lot of this has been because of this kind of precarious situation around data that's been coming in. And I think to a certain extent, Powell, and I talked about this earlier in the week, a little confused on why are we not seeing a reaction from the market? Well, maybe this is the beginning. So obviously higher unemployment, lower jobs definitely could show cooling. All right, some other things in the article here, Powell said that while the move may slow hiring and economic growth, the central bank needs to remain focused on keeping inflation in check. It sounds to me like he's looking for a much deeper cut in terms of jobs. Open interest for Bitcoin call options, 40, 45 and 50K are now growing. So a lot of people looking at this as potentially a push up, we'll see. Let me know down in the comments below if you guys think Bitcoin is going to start to move on an uptrend here. Even though sentiment has kind of been flat and sideways, much like Bitcoin itself, with these kinds of numbers and continuation of seeing the market kind of react to this, we may see some movement here within the crypto markets. Another thing here, COBICI letter, highest unemployment rate since February 2022. Let me zoom in on that for you guys.
A highlight from The SEC Drops the Ripple Case: How Big A Deal Is This?
"Most of the crypto industry kind of is at the point of just a plague on all your houses. Burn it to the ground and let something new be built in its stead. There is not a lot of sympathy or compassion or patience left among regular crypto industry participants for all of these people who ended up causing such catastrophic destruction. Welcome back to The Breakdown with me, NLW. It's a daily podcast on macro, Bitcoin and the big picture power shifts remaking our world. What's going on, guys? It is Friday, October 20th, and today we are talking about the SEC dropping the Ripple case and the New York attorney general suing DCG. Before we get into that, however, if you are enjoying The Breakdown, please go subscribe to it, give it a rating, give it a review. Or if you want to dive deeper into the conversation, come join us on the Breakers Discord. You can find a link in the show notes or go to bit .ly slash breakdown pod. Well, friends, there is some serious excitement to close out this week. And no, I'm not even talking about JP Morgan's report that an ETF is likely to be approved in the next few months or Bitcoin's morning rally up above thirty thousand dollars. What I'm talking about, or at least where we want to start, is with the SEC dropping the Ripple case. Specifically, the SEC will no longer pursue allegations against Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse and executive chairman Chris Larsen. The pair had been named as additional defendants in the Ripple lawsuit, with the SEC alleging that they had aided and abetted the company in violating securities laws. The issue was the sole outstanding matter in the Ripple case after the judge ruled that this part of the lawsuit should continue to a full trial due to disputed facts. Other matters were decided back in July, with the judge finding that public sales of XRP tokens on exchanges, as well as distributions to staff and subcontractors, did not constitute the sale of unregistered securities. Now, the court did hold that sales of XRP tokens to institutional investors did satisfy the Howey test and were, therefore, considered sales of unregistered securities. The SEC's Thursday filing said that the regulator would continue to pursue its claims against the company. Earlier this month, the court ruled that the SEC could not put forward an appeal of the Ripple decision until all outstanding matters were resolved. Now that next April's trial has been vacated, the path is cleared for an imminent SEC appeal of the decisions which went against them in July. Ripple, for their part, is treating this decision to abandon further claims as another small in their ongoing battle with the SEC. A press release from the company characterized the actions as a surrender. Garlinghouse said in a statement, For nearly three years, Chris and I have been the subject of baseless allegations from a rogue regulator with a political agenda. Instead of looking for the criminals stealing customer funds on offshore exchanges that were courting political favor, the SEC went after the good guys. He added, We look forward to the day this chapter is closed once and for all, now that the SEC has dropped the curtain on their absurd theatrics against Chris and me. Larsen said, Indeed, he went on and called the SEC's lawsuit, As well as dealing with an anticipated appeal, Ripple will also now need to pay penalties for their illegal sales of XRP tokens to institutional investors. The SEC filing said that the parties plan to meet in order to negotiate a settlement. They will set out a briefing schedule in November to proceed on a contested basis if no agreement is reached. This appears on the face of it to be a very good thing. And that may be true, but it's also maybe not the thing that it initially seems. Catherine Kirkpatrick, the chief legal officer at CBOE, wrote, This means they can proceed to appeal the Ripple decision much sooner. Otherwise, they would have had to wait until the conclusion of that trial in late spring. Gabriel Shapiro from Delphi Digital says, Now, once this interpretation got out, that the SEC was so focused on wanting to appeal the other part of the decision that they were willing to drop the charges against the execs, some people started to point out that that also seemed a little nuts. Alliance Dow's Jason Franek wrote, This is insane if true. It's equivalent to the SEC saying that either A. The exec lawsuit was weak or even frivolous or B. We think the execs broke the law, but we don't care. We'd much rather rush to appeal so we can crush the crypto industry at large. If the latter, it's emblematic of how a regulator at war with an industry would behave. Mike Vafchak, also of Alliance Dow, said, They have abandoned any pretense of neutrality. They don't give an F. Of course, that's not what the Ripple execs did. They are not bad actors. But that's what the SEC claims they did, what they argued in court, what they said before Congress. They don't care about protecting investors. They don't care about you. They care only about their power. Now, there is one other interpretation as well. On Jacob's post that I just read a moment ago, consensus lawyer Bill Hughes wrote, Or they hate trials. That interpretation was reinforced by Elliot Stein, senior litigation analyst at Bloomberg, who said, Now, it's not at all clear to me that the SEC can actually competently run a contested trial. Remember, we haven't actually seen them run a trial under Gensler, only pretrial motions and settlements. It may be that they just never had the stomach for it. And when it was headed that way, they had to back off. However, another legal action popped up at the end of this week, and we will come to that just after this quick break. Today's episode is brought to you by Kraken. For far too long, the whole financial system has been standing still, too slow, only on for certain hours, overly designed for some types of people, but not for others. Crypto, at its best, represents progress. It asks the question, what if? It invites people in instead of leaving them out. It's on 24 -7, 365, and moves at the speed of real life. Not everyone believes it. We've got our fair share of detractors, but that's the way it always is when you're building something new. Kraken is a crypto company that has been through the highs and lows of the industry, facing forwards towards progress throughout. And now they're inviting us to see what crypto can be.

Cryptocurrency services are provided to U .S. and U .S. territory customers by Payword Ventures, Inc., PVI, DBA, Kraken. New York Attorney General Letitia James has filed a lawsuit against Gemini Trust, Genesis Global Capital, and Digital Currency Group for allegedly defrauding 230 ,000 investors out of more than a billion dollars. Also personally named as defendants in the lawsuit are DCG CEO Barry Silbert and former Genesis CEO Michael Morrow. James is seeking to ban Gemini, Genesis, and DCG from participating in the financial investment industry in New York. Now, A .G. James has definitely been rapidly filing lawsuits over the recent months with active litigation against CoinX, KuCoin, and Celsius founder Alex Mashinsky. The allegations here relate to the events surrounding the Gemini Earn product. The lawsuit claims that Gemini lent funds to Genesis, which is owned by DCG. These funds were then lent to counterparties, including now bankrupt trading firms 3ROS Capital and Alameda Research. It's alleged that these counterparty failures left Genesis with a $1 .1 billion loss. Now, it's not illegal for loans to fail and cause a lender's book to collapse. What James is alleging is that both Gemini and Genesis knew about the state of the lending business as it deteriorated and actively misled investors about the risks being taken. The lawsuit claims that Gemini knew Genesis was lending on an under -collateralized basis and had excessive concentration of loans to a single counterparty in Alameda Research. The allegations state that Alameda made up 60 % of Genesis's external loan book in July 2022 and that loans were mostly secured by FTT tokens, which of course collapsed in value surrounding the failure of FTX. Both Morrow and Silbert are accused of defrauding the public by attempting to conceal heavy losses which would be borne by investors. The lawsuit claims that the pair disguised $1 .1 billion in losses through a months -long campaign of misstatements, omissions, and concealment. It alleges that tweets sent by DCG and Genesis following the bankruptcy of Three Arrows Capital were false, misleading, and omitted material facts. The complaint claims that DCG did not simply assume the $1 .1 billion open -term liability related to Three Arrows, which could be called at any time. It replaced that liability with an illiquid 10 -year promissory note. Internally, a Genesis officer objected to claiming to counterparties that they had absorbed the loss because they would be unable to defend this statement from any level of scrutiny. Now, for Gemini's part in the deception, the lawsuit claims that even after Gemini decided to terminate Earn and provide formal notification to Genesis Capital, Gemini continued to take tens of millions of dollars worth of additional cryptocurrencies from Earn investors. These additional investments were passed on to Genesis while at the same time, Gemini employees were closing out their personal positions, according to the allegations. The suit claims that Gemini's internal risk management framework fall well short of their pledge to customers, and in fact, that Gemini had internally downgraded Genesis's risk rating to junk status in February 2022 and sought to terminate the Earn program in September. According to the complaint, these were material facts for investors which Gemini had an affirmative duty to disclose. Finally, while both Gemini and Genesis claimed to hold all necessary government licenses to operate their businesses, the lawsuit alleges that they should have registered under New York securities laws and failed to do so. A .G. James said in a statement, Now, of course, this lawsuit compounds active litigation for Gemini, Genesis and DCG. In January, the SEC sued Genesis and Gemini for offering unregistered securities in the form of the Gemini Earn product, a claim which the two firms are currently pushing the court to dismiss, saying that the details of securities offering are not sufficiently defined. And then, after negotiations broke down surrounding the Genesis bankruptcy, Gemini sued DCG and Barry Silbert in July. In terms of response, in a statement discussing this new lawsuit, DCG said that they had been, Silbert added that he was, Now, Gemini, for their part, tried to kind of have it both ways and say that this suit backed up what they had been saying about Genesis and DCG for a while, but they were, of course, innocent. They tweeted, of a massive fraud and systematically lied to by these parties about Genesis's financial condition. With that said, we wholly disagree with the NYAG's decision to also sue Gemini. Blaming a victim for being defrauded and lied to makes no sense, and we look forward to defending ourselves against this inconsistent position. Ryan Selkis from Masari summed up much of the community's reaction when he wrote, I'm no fan of the NYAG, but this is one of the most horrific and damning complaints I have read in crypto. Brutal, but I'm glad this final shoe has finally dropped. Separately, he also tweeted, The only difference between DCG and FTX is that FTX used QuickBooks. James Safart, an ETF analyst at Bloomberg, said, Historically, you'd say Genesis were the adults in the room, and it really did seem like it. But I feel like there is virtually no interest rate I'd be willing to accept using this stuff as such a large chunk of the collateral, not to mention such a large chunk of the book. Like if this stuff were disclosed, I suspect a lot of Gemini Earn users would have withdrawn their crypto from the program. I think overall, when it comes to this idea that Gemini are somehow the innocent victims here, the courts will prove whatever they prove and obviously Gemini gets to fight. But unfortunately for them, most of the crypto industry kind of is at the point of just a plague on all your houses, burn it to the ground and let something new be built in its stead. There is not a lot of sympathy or compassion or patience left among regular crypto industry participants for all of these people who ended up causing such catastrophic destruction. Now, of course, where a lot of people went was what this means for GBTC. Travis Kling, the founder at Aikigai said, This strikes me as enough for SEC to put GBTC conversion on ice, at least for now. And so that, friends, is I think the next thing to watch, whether we get any intimations of what will happen next in Grayscale's attempt to convert the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust into an ETF. Does the SEC approve another set of ETFs in advance and let the market do their work for them? That's kind of my base case, but we will just have to see. For now, that ends another crazy week in the wild crypto industry. One more big thanks to today's sponsor, Kraken. Go to kraken .com slash the breakdown and see what crypto can be. And until next time, be safe and take care of each other. Peace.
SBF TRIAL: 10/02 Update
"Welcome to the SBF trial, a Coindesk podcast network newsletter bringing you daily insights from inside the courtroom where Sam Bankman -Fried will try to stay out of prison. Follow the Coindesk podcast network to get the audio each morning with content from the Coindesk regulation team and voiced by Wondercraft AI. It is officially trial week and as Bloomberg's Joe Wiesenthal would likely put it, this is why we get up in the morning. It's been exactly nine months and 20 days since Sam Bankman -Fried got arrested at his then home in the Bahamas. Today marks the last day before he is set to start the trial in which he will win back his freedom or be locked up for what a federal judge says could be a very long time. Thousands of pages of evidence ranging from internal documents to audio recordings will be presented and fought over in the next six weeks as US prosecutors try to prove that the former FTX founder knowingly defrauded customers and business partners. Arguably the most damning evidence or lack thereof could come from the recollections and personal opinions of Bankman -Fried's former colleagues, friends and housemates. Caroline Ellison, Nishad Singh and Gary Wang were close friends and roommates of Bankman -Fried as much as they were colleagues. Ellison was emotionally invested with the FTX founder and troubled by the former couple's on and off relationship which according to a diary entry from her slowly fizzled out in February 2022. Prosecutors also say they intend to call up FTX customers and investors including non -US customers over the course of the trial. On another note, do you remember when FTX suddenly announced it was hacked and lost some $600 million worth of crypto? This was the same day it filed for bankruptcy last November. A decent portion of those funds sat in a wallet for a few months and then started moving this weekend. Around 15 ,000 Ether worth around $26 million at Sunday night's prices moved out of a wallet through various routers and privacy tools between Friday night and Sunday morning. We never got an explanation for what exactly happened and how the exploit was carried out. I imagine federal investigators are probably closely tracking this episode. On a logistics note, Judge Lewis Kaplan ruled in favor of the DOJ's motion to prevent Bankman -Fried from getting into the weeds on what his lawyers may or may not have said about FTX's operations in his opening statement. However, Bankman -Fried's defense team can still raise the advice of counsel defense later on with notice to the court and DOJ. In court filings, the defense said the argument would be that FTX's in -house and external lawyers were part of decisions to use auto -deleting messaging platforms, set up legal entities in the US, loan funds to FTX and Alameda executives, and other aspects of the FTX -Alameda relationship.

A highlight from Ep377: Follow This Principle To Start A Show Even If Youre Busy - Rasean Hyligar
"If anybody's thinking of starting a podcast or just me personally, when I started it off, I understood the first one's going to suck. Check out episodes like the first episode, the second episode, you'll see massive difference between when I started to where I am now. And the only way you're going to get there and really find your own personal style is by repetition. Most hosts never achieve the results they hoped for. They're falling short on listenership and monetization, meaning their message isn't being heard and their show ends up costing them money. This podcast was created to help you grow your listenership and make money while you're at it. Get ready to take notes. Here's your host, Adam Adams. Quick disclaimer, the audio quality in this episode, at least on my end, is subpar. It's below average. It's not what I normally produce, but it was really good content with Rashaan. And so I still wanted to produce it. I made a mistake. I made a mistake by not following through with my checklist, which actually, if you check on the previous episode right before this, it's all about checklists. And I gave you 10, 11, 12, 13 options, ideas that could be on your checklist. So I want you to definitely check that last episode out. I think you're going to get value. And I hope that you'll give me some grace, some forgiveness that I made a mistake even after 900 -ish episodes that I published that I still somehow forgot to use the correct microphone. When I was recording this episode with Rashaan. Let's dive in right now and please give me your grace for how the audio quality on my end sounds. A lot of good content. Here we go. What's up, podcaster? It's your host, Adam A. Adams. And today we are with Rashaan Heilinger. And we're going to be talking a little bit about his podcast, his podcast journey, where he is. And if you're listening and you've got a podcast or you're thinking about starting a podcast and you're working full time, now would be a really good time to check into the episode because Rashaan is actually, he's got his own business started while working full time as an engineer. And he launched his podcast. I mean, he's put out over a hundred episodes. Rashaan, when did you start it again? When did you launch the podcast? I started my podcast in November of 2020. So a little bit into the pandemic. Oh yeah, that's right. Just a few months after. What happened for you to make the decision? I've got a couple of like follow up questions with that. So just think through this. You probably had a full time job. You didn't start the podcast right away. So what I'm curious about and what the listener might be curious about is how long had you been thinking about starting a podcast? How long had you had your side hustle business, coaching and mentoring entrepreneur men? Could you give us that story? Like why six months in a pandemic? Why not before and why not right at the pandemic? So the idea for the podcast started back when I was in college, right? But the idea for podcasting came a little bit obviously before the actual podcast was launched. And the idea was that I wanted to provide impact and provide value to a lot of people. Since growing up, I had a lot of advice given to me from my parents, from mentors, from different kinds of instructors, whether it was in my martial arts journeys or anything of that nature. I had a lot of advice and a lot of good tactical tips that were given to me. And I said, you know what? This is fantastic information. And I want to give this back to a bunch of people who are ready to be held accountable for the choices that they make. They know that their life is fully their control. They need to take a grasp of life by the horns and really, really strive to actually do what they want to do in their life. Whatever that may look like for you. Let's say you want to make a ton of money. You want to get to a certain body fat percentage. You want to maybe be the best public speaker, whatever that goal is for you. My goal is to say, let me give some tactical tips to be able to start you on that journey to say, okay, you have this goal. Let's break it down to the more minutia. What do you have to do on the day to day to get you up to that? And so thinking about how I wanted to start the podcast, the idea for that came around the January, February ish timeframe, same year 2020. So before being shut down in March, okay. You said the idea came when you were in college, put a date on that. When do you think you got that idea? So the idea I would say came maybe right around my winter break of college. Since when I started the podcast, I was still in college. I've since graduated now, but it started around December 2019 ish. I would put right around there. And then January, February, you're graduating. I graduated in may of 2021. Okay. And when did you start your engineering job as a systems engineer? I started that in February last year, February, 2022. All right. So you launched a business and a podcast while graduating college. Right. And at the end of graduating college with an engineering degree. Yeah. A lot of homework. Where are you working to? Did you have like a job while going to school? I did. Yes. So we did a couple of jobs. I worked first as a lab technician. Well, I don't know how far back you want to go. Yeah. How about from December of 19? Like were you working at that time? December of 19? Yes. I was working as a laboratory technician. I was working contracted there and I was working in their microbiology portion of the facility. So I worked there for a couple of years. From there, I moved over to becoming an engineering lab technician at a different company where I worked there for about seven or eight months or so. And then after that, I saw an opening for a full -time position at that company. And then I said, you know what? Let's do it. And so I put in my resume, went through the whole application process, yada, yada, yada. And now here we are. I'm still in that position right now. Okay. And what came first? The chicken or the egg? Okay. What I mean is did your business start or did your podcast start? Like you had an idea that you wanted to help people. And so did you launch a business? And then later you're like, Oh, a podcast would be helpful to add, or did you have a podcast and you're like, Ooh, maybe I should do a business or how did that go? Actually the latter, because a lot of people actually start their business first and then see podcasts as the marketing channel for that. I'm actually like the minority. When I figured I was actually flipped it because my mentality the entire time was I just want to give back a bunch of value to people. And I just want to be able to give, give, give, give, give. And then eventually I started giving a lot of that. And then people started asking me for more advice, whether it be Instagram, whether it be on LinkedIn, whether it be in person. And they said, Hey, I have a question about this. I have a question about that. And I'll say, okay, cool. And we could do that. And then I figured, you know what? A lot of people are asking me for help. I can probably build some kind of a business around this. Right. So that's what I started saying. Let me go ahead, launch into start working on my coaching program. And so that's where we are now today. So started from podcast, migrated that now into the business. And now it's funny because now we're starting to do that switch back where now it's going to start becoming more focused on the business. And then the podcast will now start becoming more of like a marketing thing. However, not say that the podcast will change in terms of the value that's given or anything like that. Cause I believe in being fully transparent, keeping that as free as possible valuable tactical evidence on that every single episode, as we call it, the fluff free guarantee. So I promise to keep it a hundred percent there and keep it actionable. So every time people listen to an episode, they say, Oh, I can write down this, or I could take down this. I can implement that. So that's not going to change at all. However, it would still be some extra information for people to say, Hey, if you want more information, I do have a program. I have some questions that are stemming from people that have a decent amount of money where money is not a big stress. And then there are others where it's like, I really, really have to be careful here because I don't want to spend too much on this.
A highlight from News Block: FASB Change Bullish for Bitcoin, Surging Oil Prices, America's Savings Slump, FTX Liquidations & Ripple Acquires Fortress
"Welcome to the CoinStories news block. I'm Nathalie Brunel and in the span of just 10 minutes, roughly the same time it takes to mine a new Bitcoin block, I'll provide you with concise, insightful updates on Bitcoin and the global financial landscape so you're well informed on the week's top stories. Everything you need to know, in one place, in one block. Let's go. Fair value accounting is officially coming to Bitcoin and this development could mark a turning point for the adoption of Bitcoin at the corporate level. The Financial Accounting Standards Board, better known as FASB, voted unanimously to adopt new rules that would require businesses to report their Bitcoin holdings at fair value, meaning at the current market value. This is a major improvement that will allow companies to recognize both losses and gains on their Bitcoin holdings, just like other financial assets such as stocks and bonds. Prior to this recent FASB decision, companies had to treat Bitcoin as an intangible asset and the way those are reported require the company to record the price it originally paid for the asset, so in this case Bitcoin, and then reassess the value each quarter. If the asset value goes down during that time, the company has to mark the loss on its balance sheet. This is called an impairment loss. But if the value of that asset increases during that time, companies cannot mark the value of the asset back up, so they get hit with all the price drops and don't get to benefit from any of the price gains. And for an asset as volatile as Bitcoin, this has made holding it very prohibitive for companies. When companies have to mark down the value of an asset on their balance sheet, it negatively impacts their earnings report, and earnings often drive a company's stock price, valuation, and overall performance. This problem prompted Bitcoin industry leaders to request that FASB create new rules that would require businesses to use fair value accounting. After FASB declined this request on three separate occasions, it is finally voted to change them. Businesses holding Bitcoin will now get to mark their Bitcoin holdings when the price goes up and down during a quarter, eliminating some of the impairment losses on their balance sheets, and allowing them to more accurately report the value of their Bitcoin. The new FASB rules will become mandatory for all private and public companies beginning in 2025. What used to be a barrier of entry for companies considering buying Bitcoin is now close to becoming a thing of the past. And it's developments like this in the bear market that lay the foundation for the coming bull market. Okay, so soon it will be easier for corporations to put Bitcoin on their balance sheets, and many will need to as we enter what many analysts believe will be a more inflationary decade. A major factor that will influence the inflation picture moving forward is the price of oil, and lately it has been surging. Crude oil is up nearly 25 % in the last three months alone and recently hit a 10 -month high. One reason for the price increase is the combination of increasing demand and falling supply. Last week, OPEC +, the organization of the petroleum exporting countries led by Saudi Arabia and Russia, announced they will extend their production cuts until the end of the year. This latest OPEC Plus announcement comes as global oil supply is at the lowest level since 1985. At the same time, world oil demand recently exceeded pre -pandemic levels and continues to rise. If the demand is rising and supply is dropping, the price will likely continue to go up. And oil is strongly correlated with CPI inflation because it is an important input in nearly all sectors of the economy, from the direct production of goods to transporting them and helping power global supply chains. And when oil prices rise, gasoline prices at the pump typically follow suit, and that's exactly what we're seeing today. The cost of gasoline is a significant expense for households, and prices at the pump have increased year over year for the first time since February 2022. This latest surge in the price of gasoline doesn't bode well for the White House or the Federal Reserve's fight against inflation. Last time gas prices rose, the White House fought that increase by draining the Strategic Petroleum Reserve to levels not seen in 40 years. And that's our nation's stockpile of oil reserves, meant to be used in case of emergencies. Now the SPR remains depleted, with gasoline prices rising once again. The price of oil remains an X factor in the inflation picture. If these supply and demand dynamics do not improve, we could be entering a period of sustained higher inflation, and in that environment, owning scarce hard assets like Bitcoin is one way investors could potentially protect their savings. And speaking of savings, U .S. households badly need the ability to save and store value into the future. Saving rates are at the lowest level since the global financial crisis. Despite this, people are still out there spending, even though things are getting more expensive. Credit card debt is now at record levels, and the average interest on those credit cards stands at a ridiculously high 28%. This is a worrying trend, and this only serves to increase the fragility in the overall financial system. People are putting things on credit cards because the level of excess savings accumulated during the pandemic has been dwindling. During and even after lockdown, stimulus checks and various fiscal programs sent money directly to consumers, resulting in about $2 trillion in excess savings for U .S. families. This cushion was super useful, especially as the cost of living began to soar over the last three years. But that cushion has been deflating. Households have steadily drained their excess savings for 23 straight months, and now, if the current rate holds, the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco expects these savings to run out in the current quarter. If we reach a point where these savings run dry, what happens next? More than half of respondents in a recent Bloomberg survey expect personal consumption to shrink by early 2024. This isn't great news for a consumer -driven economy and, ultimately, for employment. It has never been more evident that these households desperately need a money that holds its value over time and cannot be inflated away. And finally this week, let's touch on some crypto news affecting Bitcoin. Bitcoin's price remaining volatile, dropping back down toward $25 ,000. Some analysts are speculating this is related to fears over a potential liquidation of more than $550 million in Bitcoin connected to the FTX bankruptcy. On September 13, the U .S. Bankruptcy Court will decide whether or not to grant approval for FTX to liquidate billions worth of assets, including everything from cryptocurrency tokens to Bitcoin to beachfront real estate in the Bahamas. Many are speculating that FTX will obtain the green light. In July, FTX stated its intent to repay customers through a liquidation of its assets, so Bitcoin's recent price action could be related to the market beginning to price in this scenario. Another story that is increasing fear in the market is related to cryptocurrency custodian Fortress Trust. Surprising news came out last week that Fortress will be acquired by Ripple Labs, the issuer of XRP, for an undisclosed amount. The question became, why did Fortress sell now? News outlet The Block reported Monday that acquisition talks accelerated after it was revealed that Fortress client funds may have been compromised in a security breach involving a third -party analytics vendor. Fortress reported the incident in a string of tweets on September 7, stating that four Fortress customers were impacted by a security incident, but that no funds were lost. A spokesperson from Ripple told The Block that despite the security incident, the opportunity to buy Fortress made sense for Ripple in the long term, adding, Luckily, Ripple was in a position to act quickly to step in and make customers whole. That statement contradicts what Fortress has said publicly. So was there no loss of client funds as Fortress claims? And what would have happened to Fortress if Ripple had not been ready and willing to acquire the custodian? Now listen to this. BitGo CEO Mike Belshe summarized what happened on X, saying, When Fortress lost funds, they chose to omit facts about what happened, downplay the event, and conclude, most importantly, no funds were lost. Obviously, we now know this was not true. I guess what they meant to say is we believed we fixed the problem and we have taken steps to make sure clients are made whole, but those two statements are not even close to being the same. Now this situation certainly raises a lot of questions. In the aftermath of other high -profile cryptocurrency exchange and custodian bankruptcies, the market's appetite for this kind of news is extremely low. Some of Fortress' clients, including Bitcoin -only exchange Swan, confirmed that their customer's Bitcoin remains in insured cold storage wallets and did not move during this incident. Now we are still waiting for the full details of this acquisition and what exactly happened, but this serves as another important reminder of what can happen when investors trust third parties with their Bitcoin. We will say it again and again, not your keys, not your coins. Taking self -custody of your Bitcoin is the only bulletproof way for you to know with certainty that your Bitcoin is safe and free from counterparty risk.

India-Russia Trade Relationship
"Hello friends, India and Russia to deepen trade and economic relations. Recently, India and Russia have agreed to deepen their trade and economic relations with Russia looking to increase machinery imports from India to improve the trade balance. The announcement of a potential free trade agreement, FTA, between India and Russia comes as the two countries are looking to further boost bilateral commercial ties. The FTA talks are significant in the context of economic relations between India and Russia. However, Western countries have called on India to distance itself from Russia over its invasion of Ukraine in February 2022. Russian Deputy Prime Minister and Trade Minister highlighted that road construction material and equipment, as well as chemicals and pharmaceutical products, are in high demand in Russia and he hopes this will create opportunities for Indian companies to increase their supplies to Russia. He liked the issue of payments in bilateral trade, which has deepened in the backdrop of Western sanctions on Russia. He also suggested that Russia would consider widening the use of national currencies and currencies of friendly countries. India has been keen on increasing the use of its rupee currency for trade with Russia. Indian Foreign Minister expressed hope that the FTA discussions would resume, saying that they had been disrupted due to the Covid -19 pandemic. He also highlighted the potential benefits of Russian technology for Indian businesses, while also addressing payment certification and logistics issues. The announcement of the FTA talks and the deepening of trade relations comes as India is also engaged in FTA discussions with Britain, the European Union and the Gulf Cooperation Council.

But once it was pretty clear that this team is good enough that they are kind of one, I would say big piece away. They weren't one piece away like a Dorian Finney Smith away. They're one James Harden away. That they can that it does make sense to be like, well, we have been. He's not getting worse. His value is not getting lower. It's either your team that likes band and think you can work them in or your team that doesn't. And so it's like, well, let's see if this is the best deal. And so for a while it was like, with the Indiana have the best deal to Sacramento of the best deal, Minnesota is really trying to push for like, do you want D'angelo Russell and whatever? And I was like, one of those deals is always going to be around if you have to take it. But Daryl waited long enough to be like, I believe that something else will come about. For a while look like it was hard and it could have been, it might have been be able to have season any surgery. And then it became like harden's available and he's I think the best player out of those guys, even if he's towards the end of his prime and has now forced his way out of two places. But he's just good enough to wear and especially has the relationship with Daryl enough to where you just go like, yeah, this is the trait. This is the trade we've been talking about for a long time. And to trade one of The Crown jewel pieces of the process for a guy as good as James Harden, who's going to be a Hall of Famer, who is an MVP player very recently, who's playing a the worst basketball of his career, but only because his whole career has been so excellent. And he's the kind of guy that as we've seen is, you know, I talked about it on the Ricky today, but when he's not engaged, his game slips quite a bit, but when he is engaged, he's still one of the best players in the league..

Thank you for coming back to what a weird week the podcast of the weirdest news stories of the week took the month of January off here we are season two episode one. Well, we did have an episode in the podcast screen we did in scream also maybe we did a podcast that was my daughter's English assignment, haven't gotten the grades back on that yet, so fingers crossed everybody.

Dunkin Donuts offering weddings in the drive-through this Valentine's. They say we're all nostalgic for good old loving love. On Valentine's Day. But lousy stinking COVID, no fancy dinners out the violins and the non plastic cutlery. We're not doing that with COVID, so donut love is the answer. 8. Oh my gosh, this one is so weird. Because cores can't officially run an ad during the Super Bowl Anheuser Busch or whatever their company name is, they have exclusivity. So cores is going to offer a video audio experience on YouTube that is supposed so far big deal, right? This is supposed to, they've worked with a psychiatrist, psychologist, they've worked with a dream specialist, somebody this is all credible stuff. Here's what they're doing. The YouTube video audio experience is supposed to make you dream. They're supposed to put advertisements in your dreams about course. The new beer, they'll be advertising as the MKUltra beer. Mind control joke. 7. Everybody this past week has been talking about the Reddit GameStop, the stocks that read it can appear to make sore and the stockbrokers who appear to be sore as well over the whole story. Anyway, the manipulation of the stock market, we do have a link. There were a lot of great links shared because when this story came out, many of us, myself, for sure, we realized don't really understand how the stock market works. 6. Rolling Stone's 50 most anticipated movie releases of 2021 makes the list because in a time of COVID, some things that were normal now seem weird. So that's number 6. I can't believe they're going to have an average of one, almost one anticipated movie per week. Maybe it's because we've watched all of the things. Maybe that's the reason you usually you'd anticipate a few big ones, here's a few big ones for the first half of the season. But now we're anticipating 50, a top 50 list in Rolling Stone because my gosh, I watched YouTube cats for an hour yesterday. That was well, here's what you do. First you, you scroll through Netflix, and then you look up and it's, wow, three hours. Three hours still haven't found anything to watch. And then flip on YouTube and hope that live cats channel just hope that a cat will walk by the screen. Yesterday, our into it, no cats. You know, I stand by my decision. It was still a good, it was a good watch. Live cats, YouTube, with no cats. 5. Number 5 is volcano mouse once thought extinct is actually doing great. If you've never heard of the volcano mouse, I know what you're thinking, this is a mouse that obviously it must spit lava that can burn through a bank vault. And we need to plan the volcano. Mouse heist. Well, volcano mouse heist, not easy to say. It's a great thought, but the volcano mouse is the kind of mouse living near mount pinatubo when it erupted in 1991. Scientists thought, well, ain't no mice surviving this, but they did science. They did. And now there's a study published volcano mouse doing well. What was it though? This study is not out about exactly how they survived the volcano eruption. What was it? Did they are they incredibly smart, incredibly fast, is it cheese? Perhaps eating cheese can help you survive a volcanic eruption. Four. Number four is the subway tuna sub lawsuit allegations. Lawsuit out of California claiming that subway tuna subs are not tuna. If that is true, what are subway tuna subs? I mean, if it's false advertising than a sub shop ought to be made to tell the truth, but also this is going to be one of those deals where it's tuna ish, like good enough for tuna and delicious, right? And the lawsuit is just gonna make it go away. Get in the way of me having a delicious sandwich. Maybe it's goldfish and eel, we don't know right now, the lawsuit people say they have run tests and they know what's in there and brother it ain't tuna. But to be continued, that's number four. Three. Number three, TikToker horrifies viewers. Oh, I just had to include it because the headline fantastic. TikToker, horrifies viewers by making mashed potatoes out of a bag of chips. And they Michelin starred chef says the hack is ludicrous. Actual headline. So we live in a time where it is your right to be outraged. At anything, someone does, wearing Crocs, outrage, change your hairstyle. Well, come on. We're all allowed to be offended by your hairstyle choice. Boiled some potato chips. Oh my gosh. A nearly had some sort of infarction. I'm going to send you my ambulance, Bill. This TikTok guy boiled a bunch. I don't know, was that a did that? I thought that was some sort of hilarious commentary on society when I wrote this example, but this guy on TikTok boiled a bunch of lay's potato chips, plain chips, turn them into some kind of mush, called it mashed potatoes, said they were delicious. Do we know if they're delicious? I do not. However, they were deliciously anger inducing online, and that is number three. Number two, pink Kraft dinner.

"Game pass hit 30 30 million people have now gotten the game pass and it's gonna with this it's probably gonna hit 50 million and probably keep getting higher and higher. When we have those months within the year that are like the February like this year where it's just game after game after game after game after game, there's no way you're gonna find a regular casual gamer that's gonna know that there's like 5 major games dropping on like multiplay games dropping in one month and being able to put up like a 120 a $160 for all of it when literally they have either they pay a $160 to play on their PlayStation or they have it on game pass and like maybe half of those games are already gonna be coming day one to the game pass. The value there is insane. Like no one in the right mind unless you're just being biased. No one's gonna say, oh yeah, I'd rather pay a $160 than pay, oh wow, holy crap, I only pay $15 a month and I'm playing and I got to play all three of these games day one. That's the whole proposition behind why people don't buy games day one and they'd rather wait till a sales drop happens or games gets cheaper is because they want to wait and then get the game at a lower price that they feel is more tenable to them. But if you have the game pass, that throws that's like an ultra version of saving for a sale. So I don't know. It just makes a lot of sense. And then the other thing I think is important too is not only the software aspect, it's also Microsoft understand something that I think is very, very important for the future, and that's simply put, it's that I'm forgetting my train of thought here. The, why am I forgetting what I was just about to say? It was very important. Say something TBH won my brain tries to reload more stuff in my face. What are you eating? Yeah, tell them what you're eating. Barbecue bake chips. Are they anyways? I got something. I got something for you. My brain is loading. I was gonna say another thing that I'm starting to notice on my timeline is the game pass is great marketing for Microsoft, in a sense that so for those of you who don't have the game pass, there are certain games that always stay on the game pass, but then there are other games that rotate kind of like Netflix. Would only be on there for a few months and then they swap some new games in there and stuff like that, whatever deals they cut with the studios. Anytime that they swap new games and I noticed Microsoft tweets about it, it always gets good press like the community, oh shit, this is what we can expect for the next month or two or whatever. And then now that they have acquired Bethesda Activision, when these games are getting swapped, it's like it's constantly creating viral moments in like word of mouth basically. And that's something that Sony does not have. Like you said there's a long drought in between these games and versus Microsoft is constantly pushing out content. Not just from a gaming standpoint but from a marketing standpoint, just from the business side, I see that helping them in.

company I don't think a lot of folks know what Markel is and does Why don't we start by just give us the short version what is Markel Sure and in fact not only do a lot of people not know what Markel does a lot of people don't know how to pronounce it So it's an easy screening technique when somebody asks for Markle It probably didn't know who they're talking to So yes Markel To some degree I think the shorthand way of describing it in the usage of today's words is we're a family office that happens to be publicly traded Now the way that business started was in the 1930s as a specialty insurance company It's kind of an interesting history in that sand Markel was in Norfolk Virginia and he was on the city council there and Norfolk Virginia was a place where a lot of veterans would be getting off the boat from World War I Some of whom decided to stay And it was the early days of the automobile and trucking industry So Sam martell had been an insurance agent There were veterans getting off the boat They were providing cab rides which were unregulated unlicensed Nikolai jitneys was the name of the term Of course accidents ensued as would be the case that anything like that And Sam Markel got a law passed that said if you're going to operate one of these kidneys you had to have insurance And adjust the people to provide it And well no insurance company would put willing to take that sort of risk So Sam Markel said well I'll start an insurance company to take that risk I don't know what the chicken and egg was whether Sam had the chest moves all laid out before he proposed the proposed of the ordinance I would not be surprised if he did But that was really the start and the genesis of the company And they caught a mega wave in the sense that the automobile trucks the highway system the Internet interstate highway system for 30 or 40 years you really had this tailwind of epic growth in the underlying business that they would ensure We could go on and on with this conversation But I think the hallmark is still matters today is you look at problems You look at something that somebody needs you try to be creative You try to figure out a way to solve it and that's what Markel does Historically largely through insurance products and ensuring things that a lot of other companies choose not to do for a variety of legitimate reasons but then also we've expanded into a lot of different products and services industrial products and services over the last 15 years with the growth of the market venture So we can do anything and everything And if we can figure out a way to make the customers the employees better off by doing so we'll do it So the interesting thing about the insurance side is insurers taking cash against a future potential liability but between when the policy is sold and want to pay out has to be made hey we have to do something with all this capital which brings us to your job CIO of Markel assets How do we describe your title technically what is your job description Well the CIO in terms of chief investment officers chief information officer that is exactly the job I had prior to becoming the co CEO and effectively it's

He was doing pretty well in the first use Colorful good personality, But then he kind of fell apart. You guys had Eric Adams on the morning show this morning. Yeah, and Again. He's not rinsed in Churchill when he speaks, but he's pretty sounds really sounds natural. Here is this. We've reached the city of city where any and everything goes, There's no real Order to the city and I'm dismayed open urination, open defecation of a TVs, driving on sidewalks and speeding through our streets of people doing whatever they want whenever they want, And this is not a city that is going to attract business can deal with income inequalities and just any qualities if we don't bring AH, level of stability back to our city. Okay, So you're saying all the right things hitting all the right topic, she sings saying exactly what? Just what You said. Just what people want to hear. Crime, Homelessness, streets order, see just what could one here. But you contrast that with Yang, who's giving out bubble gum. He's got balloons. Everybody wins a free price become he's good. You see that his commercial guys like had a mask to scarfs. He's got his mother, this one where he's on a roller coaster. There's one where he's, uh Riding his bike. I mean, these are reasons to vote for a guy. Now. How do you explain Kathryn Garcia Rising up? She was sanitation Commissioner. Uh, they weren't Famous York Times endorsed or that's what it was. Okay? Yeah. Okay. That's it. Yeah. Took took a week or two for that show up in the polls. But, uh, sanitation Commissioner Nobody thought you did a great job with garbage everywhere. The streets were a mess. But you're right New York Times and that brought to her those upper West side a priest side liberal, So they got behind her. And I guess that was the group that would have gone towards Scott Stringer. So they've left Stringer and gone to her, and she is not bad on television. She's got Come on, eat. The commercials are a lot better than strings. So it's basically these three. It's Yang. It's Adam's. It's Kathryn Garcia. Stringer's still there somewhere just beneath them and could rise up, But I doubt it, and that's it. Then the other people in the race there's two wacko, a screechy yelling progressives, and then I came to know their names. Then there's these two dunces at the bottom. Shaun Donovan. Weird looking guy. He looks like a missing winkle. Voss twin. Hey, if anybody look like they're from out of town, he just looks like he came from Croquet Match and Darien, Connecticut. Just the way he's got no shot at Mayor of New York. I don't know what the hell this guy was thinking. Then you got Ray Maguire, who's a mumbling weird guy with the zombie eyes and it's Susie starts talking. You want to shoot yourself on? He's ignited again. It's all about how you talk and your story. What's his story? You know what incredible business success guy came from Nowhere to become top business. Well, that's normally a great story, but not with him. He's an investment banking guy. Nobody likes investment banking guys, and if you go into the neighborhoods of New York And say, I'm an investment banker. That's not good. They don't want to hear that. And when you say Citibank, I'm he doesn't say it in the commercials and nose to keep that out of the commercials. Top City Bank executive Citibank Nice company, But people don't like bankers. They don't When you say top City Bank executive, all people pictures, the guy that turned him down for the loan, so Story stinks. He's AH just can't talk, and he's down to latest Poli Was it 4% down from 6%, But that's really zero because it's within the margin of error. So if bay he and Sean Donovan basically it zero if they had any sense Or he pride they would both leave the race immediately. I guess they're hoping for that first debate, which is next week, the first real debate in person, but it won't help only is you can't tell from the commercials. McGuire is very tall. He's like 64. Play basketball, so that can help sometimes, But so is that Sean Donovan. So you noticed the two weirdos air like two giants. It'll stand up there, but They're going nowhere. So the big debate will be Adams. Yang and Garcia's got to try to have capitalized on that. New York Times endorsement. And then you get next week. You got one debate on Channel seven in a week or two. After you got the final debate on Channel four, and that will decide the Democratic nomination. So Of Mayor de Blasio. But when he says he's going to take action, more cops on the subway. That's it. They must be undercover cops because you know if you reported nobody confined these cops, this must be the best undercover operation ever because trained reporters can't spot them anywhere down there. So On and Governor Cuomo remember? He said he'd be sending in his state troopers. Anybody seen them? They're pretty easy to spot Smokey the bear had on the subway. Uh, where Oh, they'll get that's a long trip from Albany and it takes a while. Yeah, they're on the way. Um So here's the solution. The empty A says they'll put their cops in. Well, they've announced what would empty cups. They're gonna hire the cops, Which s a long process could take months. And then these cops have to be trained. Apparently, that takes another six months, so they'll put their cops in. We're targeting February 2022 for these cops to show up. And the empty a that time about 251st of all I want NYPD cops down. They weren't real cops down there. I don't want these empty A and they're talking about contracting with private security companies. We want NYPD cops down there. We don't want security guards. This is the last thing we need way. Told what a security guard from the used to work at motels. We want a real NYPD cop down there, so we'll see what happens. The vessel at Hudson yards. They opened this Hudson yards and it was the disaster. Big opening night party. That was the last time anybody was there. Empty ever since everything in the Hudson Yards is closed. Every restaurant closed. Neiman Marcus closed. Everybody went out of business. This was it was the only place not affected by the pandemic because it was empty before it was still empty. But the one thing that was big with the vessel. That big, stupid sculpture out there. Everybody climbed up that they took pictures. Everybody's instagram! The vessel. Well, not everything. People the suburbs tourist. They love that vessel. So what's the deal? Now? You can't go into it alone. Yes. You have to go with a friend. The reason is the vessel became the number one place for suicides. People jumping off the vessel. So Mm. Uh, what is the thinking there that somebody's got a friend? They were not gonna be suicidal that the suicidal person won't have any friends and nobody will go with him. Generally, people don't have you know what? You're gonna commit suicide. You don't bring people with you. You do it alone. Okay, so These geniuses think brilliant problem solved. Okay, these two things they'll do one.
