"That regulation. Just because, you know, I'm over here in the states, a lot of our audience is in the states, but you know, we do have a good chunk that's in Asia and Europe as well. And regulation for crypto is obviously different literally every single country you go in. And it seems like, you know, the west has been pretty resistant to a lot of like, you know, the Bitcoin ETF and a lot of this stuff. And some countries in Asia have been a lot more friendly. Like the Philippines, for example, like the fact that you could have this all in one business. It's perfect. You know, it's moving great. You've got great relationship with regulators. Like, that's really not a story that's ever told from like a builder of an exchange in America. Why is that? What's the big difference between building an exchange in America versus elsewhere? I think it's sort of when I was looking at it. I mean, I learned a lot of this during my time at binance. I think people talk about east west, but I think in crypto is actually global north versus global south. It's basically the half country versus the have not countries. And the half countries, they basically have already an I mean, I don't want to point fingers specifically to the U.S. because it's probably true in some of the other more developed countries as well is that they have incumbents to protect or they have not even to protect that incumbents that are quite that have sort of like, they see they see the same thesis behind Bitcoin and blockchain, right? Except they come at it and be like, I need to protect my future from this. They come out of completely from a different angle. And these are the half countries. And that's where we see much stronger resistance from the top down. Whereas I think in the global south and these are not quote unquote, have not countries, but these are just basically countries that don't have the legacy infrastructure. That do not that do not have that have, you know, had some chaos with its financial system or just people because I think a fundamentally, I think what I find globally at the working level, I sort of like the normal people are generally interested in this new technology and they want to try it out and they want to use it and they want to figure out how to own it, right? But the thing is is that if you have sort of like a big, if you have government on top saying, hey, this thing is bad evil and scary. People just tend to run away from it. But I think in the developing countries, one, you don't really have incumbents. That are sitting at top basically dictating the future of the financial system. That's what one. And two, the risk of people sort of like the risk appetite may be a little bit different as well. Just because it's a much younger population. If you look at the Phillips use per se, you know, half of the population are under the age of 30. That's massive. Wow. That's incredible. It's got like one of the most beautiful demographic bell curves you've ever seen. And these countries where there's a much larger, much larger, younger audience. And the financial incumbents are not as established and are not as powerful, then basically crypto can take shape in a much more organic way. And practical way. I think that's the word that I would use in terms of describing regulation. I think in Southeast Asian country. And that's not just the Philippines that's in Thailand. That's an Indonesia. And you're kind of seeing it and I think Australia is actually a pretty clear example. There's actually 5 or 6, I would say not thriving, but 5 or 6 exchanges down there. And they all work with banks in a pretty transparent way, right? And that's just because they've had a registration system for national exchanges down there since like 2016, 17. And then it's been worked. And nobody's really come down to be like, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. 'cause I think operate in a regulated world. You know, in any business, you need two things you need. What I call, you need transparency. So I need to know what the rules are. And I need certainty. And I need to know that rules aren't going to go left and right. Depending on whatever results happen, right? These two things, that's how you need to operate a business. And the fact that Philips have come out with virtual asset service provided, that have had vast regulations, the previous iteration is called virtual currency exchange, BCE, they've had sort of rules regulating cryptocurrency exchanges since 2016. So the rules have been around. They may sort of play around with the edges, depending on what global players do. But behind these rules, you can actually operate a licensed business. And because my regulator is the same as the banking regulator. So I'm regulated by the Central Bank the BSP. These are the same guys that regulate the EMIs that you Wallace and the banks, then it's actually obviously there are banks that still don't bank crypto. It's Southeast Asia, but there are certain banks that do bank it. And that has been a pretty healthy relationship. So yeah, so I think it's just basically the global south that they in general have been much more practical with crypto. And mainly, the other big thing that I find is if you look at sort of what's going on in Singapore, is that when you have a wealthy country, the government is much more about protecting your wealth, but if you're coming from a low GDP per CAPiTA country, then it's more about creating wealth. So I think when people look at crypto and they see this new technology that can actually create wealth for its population, then and also and then there's less I would say, less hurdles. Vis-à-vis North America per sec. Yeah. So crypto one O one is sponsored by better help. And for me, I feel my best when I'm living my passions. I really can't hit a flow state when I'm podcasting or if I'm playing guitar with some buddies or maybe trading crypto and analyzing the markets. I feel alive. Truly,

"Tearing up a two lane road ain't that some steel you anti all white sweet men do it since we was just how they spoke out there ATR wide this man ain't that you hate to grow up in Miz. Hate to think of what if I didn't even know I didn't expect this album to be as similar to the previous album. The ways in which it's different feel really small. If it was going to be different, I thought this is the direction it would be different. Do you think this is something he's good at? And if so, why do you think he didn't sort of lean into it a little bit more? That's a good question. I mean, I was thinking about his friend and collaborator hardy, right? Who makes this album that is like a concept album. And the new hardy album that's like, it's half country. It's half rock. The song in the middle goes from country to rock to let you know that your move, right? It's like a conceptual thing. And I wouldn't be surprised if at some point Morgan Wallen does like a tight little 45 minute more conceptual album, which is his bid to win over whatever. Grammy voters and music critics. This is like the opposite. I mean, I don't think we've mentioned it yet. This album has 36 songs on it. Even though it's not necessarily a hip hop album in terms of his delivery, it reminds me a little bit of the hip hop album release strategy, which is like, here's a whole bunch of songs, each one has a chance to be a big hit. Let's see. Joe, coscarelli, my colleague, when the album came out and you look at the iTunes chart or the Apple music or whatever the hell that's called these days. The first 40 songs, all 36 of the Martin law and songs are in the top 40 or the top 50 and Joe just tweeted Morgan Wallen as a rapper. Which is, again, that strategy.

"It's weird. I don't understand. Oh my God. Speaking of music, we've been doing that the whole time. The new album. Where did the inspiration for the name come from? Matching bird in the crow? Yeah, so I collect arrowheads like Native American, artifacts and stuff in Nashville. That's pretty cool. Yeah, me and a couple buddies brought up and down like the river. Oh, you actually go and find them. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Like hundreds of them. They're everywhere. You'd be shocked. So Native Americans were shooting these things and they're just still there, like on the river. Yeah, I mean, that's fucking. You know, in theory, it's just such a roundabout way to get to answer your question, but in theory, they were here for 12,000 years and, you know, it's peak, there were 22 million, I think, or something. So that shit, you know, it's everywhere. Right. So anyway, I was, I was out there one day by myself and there was a crow flying through the skies on my boat and find over the river. There was a crow, flying through the sky, and there was a mockingbird behind it, like attacking it. If you ever seen that, it's a really common thing, like in the south, seen it all the time, like a big, like a buzzer, or a crow and mockingbirds are really like territorial. And so you'll see a mockingbird just kind of like flying through the sky and pecking at it and anyway, it's just always been a thing and I like for some reason just wrote down the mockingbird and the crow, and I was in the middle of riding, I was almost done riding for the record. We had recorded, I think all 16 songs, and I didn't really have a title for the record yet. I just knew it was going to be like half country and half rock. And I wrote that idea down and then like two weeks later, I had two of my buddies, songwriter buddies out on the road to write with me on the road. Just to kind of hang out and if we ended up writing a couple songs at school, you know, and they basically tricked me into that plate of some of The Rock stuff off the new record and they were like, we have to ride a rock song and I was like, it's done, you know, the record's done and I went to bed in the next morning and I woke up and one of the guys was like a producer writer and he had built this badass like rock section and I was like, you motherfucker. And he was like, come on, and I was like, all right, fine. So I sit down and we start talking about ideas, and I will scrolling through my ideal list on my phone. And I saw the mockingbird in the crowd. And it was like, I was like, I'm an idiot. Dude, like this perfectly describes the country and The Rock side. I think so I threw it out. I was like, I feel like we could write one more song for the rest. So long story short, we wrote the song and so that was the last song written and recorded for the record. Thank God, dude. Yeah. It kind of tied the whole thing together. And so we made the mockingbird like country in the crow. You know, it turns into like a 6 minute song or whatever. I love that, dude. Yeah, man. How much of that will you play in the show tonight?

"In more detail information, but that's what I can tell you. Now it appears To have caused minimal damage to US businesses. But we're still gathering information. If it is either or the knowledge of and or a consequence of pressure, then told Putin we will respond. I thought that was interesting that Biden actually went there in his response that, you know, uh Reminded everyone not that he wouldn't have been reminded by a good press. I would hope but reminded everyone that I said I was going to respond, and we will respond. If it turns out it's tied to boot. Right, Right, Which is exactly the right attitude. And I commend him for that. Did you see that with that wasn't from the lunch. What was it like? A bagel shop? Er, some sort of a little shop video. Yeah, he went in to get some pastries or something. Yeah. Did you see that video? I mean, if I saw an old fella struggling that much to figure out the transaction and to answer questions have stepped in and said, Can I help you with that, or we'll let me carry that for you? It was It was disturbing. Let me too much to your food for you, and then I'll spit it more now, but I'll see that demeaning. No, I just said Hey, I worry. I worry for the country. I'm not mocking the guy. Sounds like you're mocking. I am not mocking certainly sounded like I was marking, right, right. That was not mockery. No. If heck if I'm as sharp as him at age 78, I'm going to be happy about it. Really? But I'm I don't know my parents for the country. My parents. I feel like my parents are ahead of them. So I've got a higher bar than that. Yeah. Okay. Um, well, you're a marker as we've just established a little more on this. This random or attack that the people that got attacked are saying it's not as big a deal, but the people investigating Inter saying it among the biggest attacks. Ever may be the biggest rains, more attack ever are evil. The same Russian cyber gang that fleeced the largest meat supplier in the world for $11 million last month, is thought by cybersecurity experts to be responsible for the latest ransomware attack. While visiting Michigan this weekend, President Biden ordered his national security team to determine if there are links to the Kremlin. Cyber experts from the U. S and Russia plan to meet next week. The RANSOMWARE attack carried out through software from the Miami based firm Cassia comes just weeks after Biden met Russian President Vladimir Putin in Geneva, Sweden, was among the hardest hit with cash registers at a large grocery store chain locked for the past three days in a message posted on the dark Web. Criminals offered the decipher key to the thousands of companies affected across 17 countries for a mere $70 million in Cryptocurrency ransom. That's a lot of money. That is a lot of money. Wow. Thousands of businesses, though, that's crazy across, uh, you know, dozen and a half countries. The poor Swedes. What have they done? They have to resort to a barter economy or what? This is terrible. Well, the world can't just say Well, I guess this is our new normal. I mean, that's not an option. Yeah, but the problem is, how do you quote unquote tie it to the Kremlin? I mean, these cyber guys are pretty good at covering their tracks. You know where they're operating out of in the rest of it. And then you have to draw definitive tie between the government and them just because they're in the same geographical entity. Yeah, just Don't indoor. You know, there's sometimes we have pretty good ties. And then Putin says No, we didn't. And and there's just enough plausible deniability. We don't do anything we stated a week or so ago, the United States did at a whole bunch of different levels that somebody operating in your country. It will be assumed that they are operating at the At the pleasure of the state. That's just what an assumption we're going to make from Alan. So if they're in Russia, we're going to assume Putin's in on it. That's Arnie stance, which I think if we've got to do, we've I don't see any other way to do it. Got to say, Look, if it's happening within your borders, it's your fault. You better stop it. You better find a way to keep these people from doing it. Yeah. Better policing police. I could see instances where that could turn unethical. I mean, if if a government really, I mean like, for instance, the government of I don't know. Like, uh, Canada. It's a big, giant sprawling country. You've got a bunch of big, burly guys in some cabin in the Yukon with laptops, you know, and they're hacking into computers. How else that pretty little prime minister going to know about completely different situation? Though completely different situation? Putin could say today anybody caught hacking in this country. You wouldn't need to say it. It would be said by others. Anybody caught hacking in this country into the United States or anybody else. You're dead. Your family's dead. Everybody you know is dead. Have a nice day, and it would end it would be over that day. They're not gonna do that in Canada, Um, most likely, Um, uh, I and and you know, you could get into ethical area. I think we're We're into one of those situations where eggs are going to be broken to make the omelet. What are you gonna do, playing by the rules, and we want to go too far? Make sure you have actually, just and that ain't working. Right. You know what? The more I listen to your ravings more? I think you're right. I mean, the amount of damage ravings the we'll tell him. No offense. The amount of damage in the frequency that this is happening is at the point Where all right now some. Some noses are going to get bloodied. Yeah. Yeah, And and some people who don't deserve it might get hit. But what are you gonna do? We gotta stop this. Oh, what a beautiful transitions. Some people who don't deserve it might get hit.

"Know those type of things in each sport does. Do you look at these times differently. There's those championship. Years are kind of like they were over the years or is it. just you won. I mean i think you could look at it from one of two. Perspectives is is. Some of the you know like you said things were a little bit different there. There was a different environment but to me. It almost makes it. It could go as a positive because you could say well. We managed to get through covert and did xyz or whatever. I can tell you right now if the nuggets at one last year even this year. I don't give a shit if it was. You know the play hitting half country. I'm still going to be just as excited about it. But it's probably relative honestly like it's this has just been such a challenge for god. The nfl especially this year really showed us. What a challenge. It is for teams to have their games moved be without certain players Sometimes teams without a lot of players. And it's i. I think. I told my wife this that. The teams that manage cove. The best are going to be the ones that are standing there at the end. You know what i mean and and it sure so far seems like that's the case. I don't think a team has one that's been undeserving. I must say that but even like yeah. Nba this year like the sixers. They had eight aids the minimum. You can have right the play but one of our players was not gonna play because he's somewhat injured even though he's not injured right and and it's one game at a seventy two. It's not it's not like words out of sixteen but we had none of us. We had any green the only starter. The rest of rookies and people that are like back and bench players had the play the nuggets. Yeah and that's significantly changes the now come in a game. It's you know what i told lee. When the broncos went through their whole quarterback situation. I mean i understand an and it is what it is but all these leagues always talk about competitive integrity. And that's not it. You know what i mean. That's just that's not it. You're knocking because then you get your inconsistencies exactly and it's just not i mean i will say this that that game for the broncos where we played with no quarterback. It brought the team together because the players were more pissed off than anybody. Because they're like you know this. It's i mean it would've taken a miracle for us to win that game and and it at least let the players band together. But it's like like you said with the sixers the other night. It's i mean. I i have to imagine that any team will take a win where they can get a win. But you don't wanna beat somebody when they're down. You know what i mean. I mean the competitor in. You wouldn't want that. I mean i coach. I.
