"Oh, righty, guys, welcome back back. We move on with the eagles. Yes, them. Birds Fly Eagles fly those Pesky pesky birds. Okay, one I'm talking about the eagles because there's a lot of interesting murmurings coming out of Philly recently very recently, actually As of this recording, but You know. Brian Baldinger has reported that he's hearing whispers about big news coming this week for the Philadelphia Eagles. He says Hashtag. Birds could a lot better in mid-july. Now the reason we're talking about this is because there are big games on the market now. You know Eagles wire, which is you know Eagles affiliated website in the sports coverage. They posted six possible moves. You know that the eagles could make you know regarding this news now I want to comment on these, because in my opinion, you know if you know we're talking about big news, know we're talking about big name or a big You know transaction now at number one. They have David Clowney. Coming to the team betting on himself for one season that. Would be pretty big clown. He's been a free agent for quite some time now, not receiving the market that he thought he would but you know. Like it, says here. You know with Clowney Brandon. Grand John Hargrave Fletcher Cox that'd be Pretty Insane That'd be you know very very good for their pass rush. Excuse me. And you know just. In, General! This right here is one that I think is pretty likely because you know when we talked about today beyond clowney before you know wild back when free agency Fred for started, the eagles were you know potential landing spot and Jude avion cloudy wants to play for a winning team. You know he doesn't want to go to some scrub team team with a losing losing contrary losing losing record he wasn't go play fourteen that he thinks can go win it. All the eagles certainly have pieces in place in the potential. Do so He could certainly help them. Take it all, so that is very interesting now. On this very same site at number two. They have Jason Peters returned for one last ride. That is not going to the big news. There's no way that the big news being rumored out affiliates Jason Peers returning, he is ancient. He needs to hang them up. you know they. They want to proceed with Andre. Dillard drafted him for a reason. I don't think that this is the news. Don't expect that. They mentioned Logan Ryan joining the Eagles now. This would be a good signing, but I don't think this is big news I don't think this is huge for the Eagles Logan Ryan hasn't had this huge market and so I. Think you know for for it to be big news. You know this is going to be something you know either clowning. WHO's a big name? Just asked he was asking for way too much money or making a big trade. Number four here. They have La Shawn McCoy. And then they say see Jason Peters. There's no way this is the big news either. That'd be cool news. It'd be cool to see less Sean Jackson go back to the eagles, but to say that that is big news. As kind of a joke, we saw Lucia McCoy Andy retrial to revive whatever was left Shawn McCoy and he really didn't do much for the chiefs. He was sort of efficient during the regular season, but after that. They basically shut down for the playoffs, and he didn't really didn't contribute at all in the superbowl didn't play. Okay. Number five here which I think should have been above the. Just read basically the eagles land devante Freeman to complement Mile Sanders. That would be very very interesting addition, but I would hate it. I would hate it, because then you know. We are seeing the same old story that we have out of Philadelphia all the time. They're probably going to. You. Know run some sort of committee and Devante. Freeman is constantly going to be taking snaps for miles, sanders. That would suck so no I do not want this. This is not gonNA happen. I'm not even GONNA. Put into the universe at this possibility. The Eagles will not land devante. Freeman to complement Mal Sanders and I really hope I'm not jinxing myself here and then I'm going to have to. Look like a fool, but. Number six year. They have Larry. WARFORD signs adding more depth to the offensive line again solid move. Not Big News, so they really miss the mark here. I WanNa tell you what would be big news? And what I think is actually possible. The Eagles training for Jamal Adams now. That would be really surprising. Right you know. We know the kind of money Jamal Adams once. And how much it's GONNA cost the team to trade for him, but. you know. That's big. You know that's big news adding Leshan. McCoy's not big news I'm thinking as big as possible here. and I'm going to say that honestly the thing that I think is most likely is today. Cloudy is going to sign with the Eagles for you know much cheaper deal than people had previously thought he's going to try and prove himself and get a huge deal or franchise tag whatever that may be Or possibly other going to Everson Griffen I know Everson Griffen is getting up there in the age department, but. He has been very very efficient for the Minnesota Vikings while.

"The story behind this book then along the way you learn about this new technology blockchain, and about these new digital assets, but one of the things that I do in here, jv is I. Talk About a daily Habit I have of writing down a some intention fifteen times each day. Somebody told me once. If you write it down fifteen times each day, it will come true while at the beginning of the book I'm writing down I I want to run a billion dollar company. That's my that is my little My little affirmation in at the end as I go through all of these challenges. I have it right here. I ended up saying. I am living my highest good I'm living my highest good, and that's what I write every day fifteen times my little most skin notebook I'm writing my. Mole Skin. Let's give skin a great shout out I. Have About Levin Different Color Mole skin so that I use for different great. They're great notebooks, and it's a great affirmation. The affirmation fantastic because you move from. Kind of the material world to the conscious world of. How can I do good? Yes, that is exactly the story of the journey in this book. So what to strategy could give for entrepreneurs listening today. That would help them build their company in a way. That's more profitable. Be careful about taking on debt. Try to pay cash for everything. Keep your balance sheet in the black. And at the same time, be looking forward and Book I. Talk A lot about taking on too much debt as we go into this new blockchain space with our company, and then also how we got out of that spiral in how we eventually got on firm footing, and really built solid ground in order to grow the business to the next step, and a lot of that came out of that affirmation as mentioned, which is I'm living my highest good. You're constantly looking for. How is this business going to drive the most value for the world versus how am I gonNa make the most money. They're two different mindsets, but during really result in two very different ways of running your business. Well and I think that's the conundrum of do I. Just WanNa be Transactional, which is conventional business or do I wanna make an impact a positive transformation with my business, and then I get paid for that, but you're you're you're focusing on? What's that impact? What's the transformation I WANNA make? That becomes a driver for you growing your business. That's right and ironically as I find out at the end. The I'm living. My highest good affirmation ends up making more money than they. I'm making a running a billion dollar company. So there is something kind of counter intuitive about that approach. Of course you're still paying attention to the books. You're not just. Saying I. Don't care how much money we're making. You are paying attention to that, but first and foremost value is to create value in the world with Your Business Yeah so I. talking about the relationship between impacted money I think the correct way of looking at it if you want to do an impact. Focus is impact produces the bottom line versus transactions producing the bottom line so I'm back is actually what creates the bottom line. Agree with great way of putting it. Thank you. So you have great book blockchain for everyone again. If you're driving or doing anything where you can't take notes, we got to cover. We've got the notes from today's show. They're all conscious millionaire's show. Dot Com to scroll down to you. See the title of today's show US blockchain to grow your network and wealth. Your book is blockchain for everyone. What's a book that you'd like to recommend? I read the principles by radio. Last year it had such a profound impact on me. So principles is the story of Radio the founder of Bridgewater, which is the largest hedge fund in the world, and it talks about not only his journey of building that by his own up and down roller coasters story of. How his first attempt at building a company and his Hubris in thinking, he knew everything about the stock market caused him to lose it all until he was down to just one person himself working out of his kitchen, and then how he rebuilt the company this time with a little bit more humility and a little bit more focus on this idea of impact or building a company with values. He calls him. Him Principles? And so the book is a book of these principles that he has found to be true and to hold for entrepreneurs and business leaders of all kinds, and it really just had an amazing impact on on my thinking in so many different ways I took all kinds of notes in my little mole skin notebook, and it's on the reading list at our company media shower for our employees as well. Well and folks, I have principals as well and I, think it's a great book. If you haven't seen it at I, think the best way to describe it as the Moby Dick Linked Book it's huge folks. And Ray Dolly was on my list of the top hundred people I'd like to have on the show the season. So if you're listening you happen to be friends with ray or have a connection I'd love to hear from you because I'd love to have radio on the show or maybe ray himself is listening well. I thought you know it's possible that raise listing and Ray. Listening listening, give jv call. Yeah, this is a sign. Right here that she needs to be it a sign from above and. Here's my here's my cellphone. It's three, zero, three, six, four, one, zero, four, zero one. Rate any day of the week is good. Whatever meet your schedule. Just leave a message. It's ray and I'll get back to you so. That's a great book free to take.

"john hargrave" Discussed on NFL: Move the Sticks with Daniel Jeremiah & Bucky Brooks
"It looks like man. We're not GONNA have one so with that in mind thing about the NFC east division and think about the Philadelphia Eagles. This is a team that has Jim Schwartz Defensive Coordinator for the last five years with. Doug Peterson the offense coordinator slash head coach for the last five years? So you've got a system in place with the majority of your roster returning. Everybody knows it. And you're an vision with three teams three other teams that are breaking in new head coaches in new schemes with no offseason. I mean you talk about a decided advantage for the Philadelphia Eagles. That's that's something. I don't think many people are focusing on right now with everything that's going on man. It's crazy it really is and you know you could. Obviously they're they're set at the key positions. You know as well as quarterback and I know they bring in some guys you know to kind of fill in with what John hargrave dairy sleigh coming in to supplement their defense but having this systems in place is I mean. Can you imagine being a first time headquarters first time head coach or a first year head coach with a new team right now not getting the benefit of the Otas not getting the benefit of the board time with your quarterback or the You know many camp at this point as to be in jeopardy at some point Or just being pushed back so Man it's Gonna. It will almost be like you know coming out of a lockout and everything just being really truncated and you know it really quick starts up again and I'm also looking at like you know the AFC east in addition for slightly different reasons. So like you're the bills you're the jets and the dolphins all right. We finally got Tom Brady out of the division. Let's go work well. We can't you know and get that those those staffs have have been place particularly in buffalo with a longer but the jets. The dolphins still just a a year in year plus in to those regimes. They're wanting to take advantage of this opportunity in the AFC east And just kind of having to wait and then you know the last piece of it you know. How much work is Tom? Brady going to be able to get with his guys now. You know we know how how much that's a part of you know what he does in his workout regimen in the off season and getting together with the guys and now he can't do it so at least not for now. So there's I mean there's a ton of circumstances here that we're gonNA have to deal. Yeah it's funny that you bring up the Tom Brady thing because I think is really interesting to look this. And I know that We get into parade ready to go at one bucks place in the Tampa. Bay buccaneers going to the Super Bowl. Because Tom Brady shows up at forty three but I do wonder if people have considered like how much the lack of all season work is going to impact. The buccaneers offense. How much work. Bruce Areas need to do to completely revamp. His style of offense With Tom Brady. Because when you dig deep into how Bruce Arians typically place is completely opposite way. Tom Brady plays from the pocket. And the quarterbacks that have played under Bruce Arians all of them have taking forty or more sex multiple times under his direction and Tom Brady is not a guy that typically operates like that particularly with vertical passing game so I just wonder how the pieces of the puzzle fit. When you don't have an offseason to really analyze though the pieces that you have on the outside and how they work to elevate Tom Brady as a past. Yeah you know it's funny. I reached out to to a friend on Tampa on their staff. Who Said we've got a bunch of passing concepts built in this concept? The idea that are vertical concept which. I don't think it's perfectly suited obviously for for Tom Brady but their their idea Tampa is. This is ridiculous just like running teams aren't specifically zone or specifically you know gap scheme they all run of. They are running an amalgamation of different schemes and concepts. And it's the same way with Bruce's passing attack. You just don't see it that often but I've been told Oh they absolutely have have concepts. That will fit. Tom Brady and will work with Tom. Brady to fit exactly. What is that he needs? They'll make the offense work around him now. I think Tom Brady because of who he is. And his experience. And because the talent of his wide receivers. I don't think it's going to be as big a problem to be honest with you. I think when you look at Cincinnati with Joe Borough landseer for example. That's going to be really really difficult. Look at Miami with the amount of free agents and draft. Picks that they're going to bring in. I think they could have some issues. Anybody who's trying to work. A new quarterback in is going to have major problems. I think Houston Texans without De'andre Hopkins. Who's been such a safety blanket for Shawn Watson? What happens now with that? You know with a quarterback like that. Who's had such a wide receiver one heavily targeted wide receiver? One that's GonNa make it more difficult for him as well so this is going to be and I think we all agree. That defense is clear head of offenses as it pertains to you know how they can pick up a season without having as much work in the off season. I think I think they can pick up where they left off for the most part. No doubt it's going to see how this all comes together here in the off season next topic. WanNa get to real quick. I love this trade for the for the eagles. Picking Up Daria Sleigh for three and a five ended up giving him a new contract which looks like three years. Fifty million with thirty guaranteed. So if you just look at the guaranteed number basically. You're getting it. Sounds like you know two years fifteen a year if you just do the guarantees we'll see how the structure of the contract looks but I know he's he's a little bit older than Byron Jones but I think he's been better football player than Byron Jones. Certainly somebody makes a lot more. Plays on the ball Lansana without gross. Jump in here on this one because my my thought twofold number one is. I liked the deal for the eagles in terms of bringing in various lay but tweeted out yesterday. It also is interesting point about you. Look the Belichick. Tree of coaches and bill. Belichick thing about the Richard Seymour's in the tiles. All these great players that they allowed to leave one way or the other summer traded some. Just let let leave via free agency but you always had the combination of Bill Belichick and Tom Brady that. They never skipped a beat and they just kept it going. And now you look at the disciples. Though guys like Darius Slay Matt Patricia Decides to move on from you look. We talked about bill. O'brien previously moving on from Andre Hopkins. He traded Clowney as well. You look at Flora's and I know that's kind of a group effort down there in Miami. It's a rebuild but guys like Mingka Fitzpatrick and Laremy Tunsil our top five type players at their position. These guys are not easy to replace man and and that to me is something. That's very difficult. When you don't have the the bill belichick. Tom Brady combination to cover it up. Yeah I think that's true. Dj and I think is one of those things that's overlooked thing when you read The stuff that came out about seriously sleigh Matt Patricia Relationship Then you see the stuff with bill. O'brien the stuff with the Audrey Hawkins. That kind of came out and we don't know if any of that stuff is true but there does seem to be a devaluing of their top players. And I can't really figure it out because The places where I've worked places where I played like talent matters light. Typically I mean we will say the most talented team is typically the one that that wins at the end and I know. New England is kind of set debt. narrative on his head with the way they've been able to come to win with what appears to be like a hodgepodge of players but there might really be a testament to Tom. Brady's greatness and bill belichick's greatness being able to overcome those things. But I think talent reigns supreme. And I just don't know if Patricia in floors and O'Brien and some of the other patriots disciples really grasp that aspect of team building that you have to have players to win at a high level and you can't just dismiss all your A. level players because of a personality conflict or something that you don't necessarily like about him. Yeah I'm with you completely unnecessary look. Tb twelve covers up a lot and those of us who studied team building stuff. We know that bill belichick is very talented. But he's had plenty. He's had plenty of Personnel Mrs especially in the draft and he cuts baked quickly and people don't linger on it because he's got titles because he's at Tom Brady to cover it up. Tom Brady began to develop a synergy with Rob Gronkowski and when Gronkowski at various times over last five or six years hasn't been on the field. Tom Brady has been the same guy when Tom Brady. Not there you're going to see the bill belichick not the same guy bill. Belichick built the fronts. He would spend first round picks on guys like Logan Mankins. He would trade up for Matt Light. He would target Sebastian Volmer You Know He. He made obviously defensive linemen. We know about the defensive lineman dont`a hightower is a first round pick. He made the Frantz his he. He made it very very critical than he spent money for his cornerbacks. He has a way of operating that I think is good however unless you look at it very very carefully and through the lens of an elite quarterback. I think you start making mistakes and I'm with you. I couldn't believe that I saw Miami letting make a fitzpatrick and Laremy tunsil leave and I think the Texans offer for Tonsil was such that Miami said. Look we don't have a choice. We have to move learn me tonsil now because this is just crazy. What we're getting in return for them because at what point you still have to have even when you have all this draft capital you still need to build a core and those are young really talented core guys that Miami leg get out the door and so i. That didn't make a lot of sense to me. Because now you have to start over and hope that you evaluate to the same level that you evaluated previously when those players came through your doors and there's no guarantee that happens. Yeah it is a tall order. That's what I'm saying I'm not talking about you. Know these are good. Players are potentially even pro bowl players. I'm talking about these. Are you know the top five caliber players position and you can say all we have all these draft picks but in buck. We've talked about this all the time. It's one thing to have the picks but man inane easy you know. It is not easy turning into elite top five level players in their position. That is not not an easy chore. No It's not an easy chore I think Sometimes I think everyone feels like is really easy to hit big time players and you know when you let all pros walk out the building man. The odds are against you that you're going to replace it with another all pro at that position and so When I think about Matt Patricia in high he wants to play the fact that he has seven or eight former New England patriots. There and I would say that some of those guys did he brought in. There aren't necessarily high level players. They just Kinda know the system. I just think you have to be careful when you value system over players. Sometimes I believe there has to be a synergy like the players that you won't have to fit the system that you desire or yet to be able to tweak your system to fit the players but man I'm just nine the business a leading a whole lot of blue chippers walkout and this it kind of leaves me a little bit like debarring. Jones conversation kind of drives me crazy. I know burn. Joe's is getting big money and he's like kind of like the bell at the ball when it came to free agency a corner man. I just have a tough time looking at the tape and saying that this is the premier corner at the position. When I don't see any place at some point I just WanNa see some plays on the Baugh. Some turnovers something. I just don't view him in that light so it'd be interesting to see how he plays out in Miami because they committed big dough to the quarterback position was Xavien Howard and Jones commanding top dollar at the positions no doubt It's a inch to see how it all comes together and how it all works down there in Miami. They've got a. They've got three picks and they've got to figure out a way to get this thing nailed in the draft to to see what they have is ballclub. I WanNa we had of the things. We're GONNA talk about here about some pro days and things like that. But but lance drop the mock draft book. So can we. Can we move in that direction because I have some questions for land? It's not just bad boy. All right we won't want to spoil it the whole entire mock draft you can go to. Nfl DOT COM.

"It's I mean we we live look we get it we're in global economy we need a global currency and that's just going to speed off the Bogle reserve currencies the dollar right now right yes the Ballard rackets this okay Jay is going to be the global reserve currency down the road or is it going to be you say one right now there's ten thousand crypto currencies and you think eventually all those are going to go the way that I don't know I just know that it's inevitable that we will have won money at the end of the day and whether that is a it'll dollar that is one way that this might play out whether it's bitcoin that's another way it might play out or whether it's something totally new what I would love to see he is sort of a United Nations style approach where everyone comes together and we have you know you'll have multilateral buying from all the nations of the earth in that is Bob Marley right they're all contributing this global currency that would be the best way I think for it's end up it's going to happen that's the game for sure yeah that's terrifying because it's like once once you know what I don't like the idea of there being one sort of thing that that's good patrolled outside of the people if it's controlled by the nation's you know those globalist out there they wanna they wanNA control the world I think that if we get to the point where we one currency the authoritarian sort of we're gonNA be deepened in the authoritarian dystopia. If that happens I see it the opposite way I see it as in that right now I see that when we have any nations that have an undue influence over the global economy there's an unfair balance power and I see this as being more of an equalizing force and more fair and equitable to everyone and this is going to open trade is going to provide access for the unbagged in it's GonNa unlock a new era of prosperity and wealth until they lock your wallet right because like if it's the only sudden well guess what you can't fly you can't get on a train anymore and they can lock up your wallet on each on we chat we pay and that's scary like if there's just one then there's no alternative and we know how how human nature is those who are going to be in charge of that like typically once they gained power they want more hour and then they get this inflated ego and then they start you know mandating things it's not normally good for society when there's just sort of a control I don't know it just seems to me that I like the idea of it it seems sort of Rainbow Ian Unicorn and I like that I would like to believe in you know human nature but we've seen him nature it's like once they gain power gain control you get crazy dictators in people who are warmongers that want to Alexander under the great and you'll Gingas Kahn they wanna take over the world and so I don't know if there's one currency one hour the people who run that are going to have way too much power it's gotta be it's gotTa be decentralized in some way where the people are this nation states start you'll have inside it can't be a one controlling sort of just like the IMF for the World Bank that's that would work I don't think yeah I agree it needs to be decentralized in in some way and I think that's the great challenge we're facing right now is like what should be decentralized and what parts should be centralized because we certainly see that when everything is completely decentralized we have a problem reaching consensus on important decisions right so bitcoin has been forked like over a dozen times because people can't decide on which direction bitcoin should go well that's not good for anyone so we need to make sure that we got sort of structures in place they give us some measure of centralization when we beat it coming to consensus and then we have decentralisation everywhere else so so John I feel like I should talk to you like this if we're going to be royalty I we've invited Paul Insa Lt show neither one of them have have commented on being hit but since Yoy L. I want to ask do you believe that the the US economy US collapse in older four crypto currency to rise here or is it possible that the dollar can be saved with a in exchange to Crypto before doomsday occurs in yes it's quite quite I I think that we don't need a complete meltdown of the economy however The New York Times recently ran a piece called a recession is coming Eventually Bright House that for goals I mean of course it's coming eventually you know that's like the Sun Wilson add some time today so I think that that recession is coming eventually and I do believe that it may be a catalyst for greater adoption of these assets luckily certainly seen that there is a subset at least people who think of bitcoin digital gold right and just as so-called safe havens like a gold and investments like that tend to the rise in value when people perceive that the economy is in a free fall or on its way down we may see very similar thing happening with the the Crypto when digital asset market as the US economy Declines so I wouldn't say a complete meltdown on but I would say that I would expect to see that had helped the digital asset class overall maybe a meltdown maybe just a little bit of us yeah that's my pop asus anyway I think there's another people melting down in this country right now I can we are we are seeing demonstrated a severe lack of emotional intelligence with just a bunch of whiny crybabies everybody's protesting something can we not just get about with the business of doing good and in making things better yeah yeah that's very much what we're trying to do that's a big part of the philosophy I'll tell you a funny story this engagement to speaking judgment and it was a bunch of certified financial adviser so as a CFO chapter there was a young man there and after I gave my talk he came up to me and said he said I I really believe in this crypto thing because I believe we're in the end times and I I looked closely to see if he was joking but he wasn't he was like I think we're in the end times and I think this talk of one world money is a sign of the end times and I'm totally on board view I'm like wait a minute did you just put a totally different interpretation on saying well actually so coming from a a spiritual background and having been in the Christian church I understand I'm not saying I agree with them but I understand where they're coming from because you know the Bible the book the revelation talks about you know the mark of the beast and a lot of debt you won't be able to buy or sell without this mark right now a lot of people have said well that's Oh RFID that's chipping people right so that you have to have this this chip embedded in you and it makes sense that if there's going to be a one world currency the that crypto would be that digital method and then you'd have to be checked in order to spend and buy and sell so you can read into anything people in predicting the end of the world for as long as there's been a world and so I don't there's nothing new under the sun I have the same I have the same Christian ground as well and the I remember as a kid people talking about how originally people thought social security numbers person reduced to a number Seems like things have gone on pretty much the way they always have what's creepy about social security is that if we did they have it and instead you were compelled let's say to invest that into any investment out there you know even if you were just getting two percent you know a money market you would have so much more money upon retirement then you're going to get from social security that's what's ridiculous about that you gotta say I disagree with you John That was not funny story at all let's talk about an actual funny story you literally had to write this book Oy It's not funny it's very painful to recount the story so I I wrote the book the first time and basically the concept behind this book was we're going to do like a we're GONNA do a user-friendly guide the blockchain right because all the books out there I fall asleep by the third chapter her and I'm like I wanNA write something it's just really interesting to read a makes it accessible user-friendly so I write this book and I've slave over it's hard work work is you know Joel hard work to write a book I get all the way done I submitted to my editor the Great Jeremy Ruby Strauss at Simon and Schuster I worked with Germany on three books he's a he's done all these New York Times bestselling books I trust him completely so Jeremy says to me he goes well John is how he talks he goes John on I read your book there were four sections to the book he goes adverse action is pretty good second section needs some work third section I think we need to rewrite completely and the Fourth Section just get rid of that I'm like thank you very much Jeremy You Dick I didn't say that because he's the best and he took some time off reread it and then I was like he's right because what I did was I tried to make sort of essays about what blockchain is and how it's going to change the world and I realized that what we need to do is to tell the story because the human brain is hard wired for stories what is the book of Genesis Joel but just a the story the best story was the story of this company that we're building and that we had like put in the blockchain the story of this company that I had taken anything but building this company for like fifteen years and then one day decided to put gamble the entire company in the blockchain being at a poker table and going all in all of my company on blockchain it was great for two thousand seventeen is exciting rise and then the crypto winter of two thousand eighteen hit and it was devastating and it was awful horrific and how we made it through that and so in a way what Dr Story is is the story a kind of a microcosm of the of the larger picture of this entire blockchain industry the macrocosm well the book is called Blockchain for everyone how I learned the secrets of the new millionaire class and you can you in you mentioned early on in the show that I did purchase the book from you and then you said get out your coin base wallet in you sent me twenty five dollars in die crypto which is a stable coined which is actually worth twenty five dollars and thirty two cents today so it's a little unstable might say but talk a little bit about why you're doing yeah I did I made money why why is this promotion and tell people how to partic- it so originally I said how cool would it be if we gave away a little bit of Bitcoin with every book never been done before Dan I said think about this let's say you give away ten dollars worth of Bitcoin with every book and then the price of bitcoin shoot through the roof the price of bitcoin might be worth more He goes John so he talks he goes at the last time I heard an original idea in the book business was never and that is an original idea and I said I will feed on that so it turns out though into more wallets and we're looking to get wallets more phones and they would be interested in essentially partnering up to give away ten dollars worth of die I for every book that you sell so we actually got this working that said this is awesome it would be even and they said let's do it so courtesy of maker Coin Base folks who are listening to.

"Glitched no you know I gotta Say I think that's kind of the similar path to how maybe Joel and I came across this because I was was thinking we were we were having a conversation about you know crypto and blockchain quite regularly and I was like man Joel and I've got quite a bit of influence here in social media in the marketing digital marketing space marketing text base I was like man I bet it will take but six months for us to have some pretty decent influence in the crypto space if we do this right and it seemed like it was less than that we started doing this show in the show took off in ride with the bull runs sorta hit and we were able to sort of move our influence of our expertise as start growing even though we weren't experts in this space we started growing our our skills in this space now we've done almost four hundred episodes of the overhaul when you add all the different types of shows that we've done around bad crypto so it's crazy and that's it that's it you can literally program yourself to do whatever you want do you just decide to do it and can get out of the procrastination that will try to hold your now yes so this idea skill stacking is really what this book chain for everyone is all about because in the book I started a similar place or I've got this business it's successful but it's not as successful as I would like I catch crypto fever and basically re launched the entire business as a blockchain business and that idea of skill stacking is permeated throughout the book because I believe the world moves so fast today that we are called upon constantly be adding to our skill stack right we don't have one career anymore with many careers many careers right like you guys know this the better than anyone and that requires lifelong learning that requires constantly taking what we already know adding to the skill set and using that to make something new do that meets the market where it is today that's what you guys did with your podcast that's what you're doing right now as what I do with the business and that's what this book teaches you how to do stack those skills I like it I dig it a lot and so now let's go down that crypto rabbit hole because you said I don't remember the exact were Sunday like becoming infatuated with both blockchain. When did that happen how did it happen why not bitcoin in twenty thirteen and this is in the one of the first chapters of the book where I went down to my local bank and I made a wire transfer to Belarus which was the only place I could find to buy bitcoins I think the price at that point was like one hundred twenty five dollars per bitcoin something like that I didn't even know her Bellarusse was on a map and making this enormous wire transfers site unseen to who knows where well as I'm sending that wire transfer it turns out it's GonNa take three days to get there and in a cost like thirty dollars in service fees and I thought the irony the Rainier that like this is the exact the problem that blockchain and Crypto is going to solve is instant transfers of money anywhere and free or near Free Trans for anywhere and so I did end up getting the bitcoin and from there it just became a love affair with this technology legit called blockchain and The book is the story of what happened next so what happened next you have to reasonably travis agreed yeah I don't have the book with the book because that's because I shelled out money to buy it I haven't hoppy it says jolt do the sexiest man on the face of the earth stay at note doesn't say that but Jones estate experts man in the earth wow very good so so you have some it's so you have three different parts of the books the BITCOIN and blockchain how to reinvent yourself and then you have some funny stories and different things that are in there so what how do you how do you describe blockchain to folks it's always interesting to talk to folks and say you know they always ask what is Bitcoin blockchain and people have sort of a different sort of a different description of that and so I think it's very helpful to hear different people's you know sort of how what's the elevator pitch for blockchain and Bitcoin what's yours I'm GonNa Change Your Life but because I'm GonNa give you a blockchain definition in one sentence that everybody in use blockchain Internet of money blockchain is the Internet of money it's that simple so our current Internet is the Internet of information rush and our lifetimes have been this amazing period where all of this information that used to be stored in books and libraries have all been digitize it's all now and the device the fits in our pocket that's the Internet of information blockchain is the Internet of money now honey we mean not just cash but we mean any kind of value so broadened the concept of money to stocks and Komo auditees and bonds and frequent flyer points and a starbucks reward points and chucky cheese tokens anything of that value can be stored on this new Internet of money and when you start talking about like that at got those chucky cheese tokens still I need to go find those because those are the money you can digitize those that's good I've discovered that virtual reality is is the Internet of porn he knew that or not but to entrap inappropriate by the way would you say blockchain is the Internet of money you've created a really cool acronym it's him blockage is the Internet of money TM so when somebody asks you what's blockchain say biddy him yeah he'll be like washer that would be a good a token name wouldn't it bit him went very good very good I think that Andrea says novelist said some of those some of that as well and it's it's so true it's like that hit upside the head it is the Internet of money at it makes is it easy to transfer and there's a whole lot of things that is viable about this but blockchain is not just related to money there's so many I mean this is what's so interesting is Gartner has has put out their new report of their hype cycle of all these different areas that blockchain is impacting all of these industries it so it's it's completely fascinating when you see how ingrained blockchain is going to be within our society it's crazy so we're working on a report of a CO author Evan Carl packets and we're working on a new book for a Riley and in fact our our first report called what is blockchain I think will be out today that the day that your listeners tuned into this and This O'Reilly report we have to talk about the state of blockchain throughout the the mystery so not just bitcoin cryptocurrencies but really the whole state of blockchain and I still hold that no matter what the application or use case this is it's still an internet of money so even talking about healthcare identity whatever it is it's still some kind of values that's being traded between people and in fact the only way to get people on blockchain that we have seen is to offer them tokens it's the only thing that has worked to right it's the only use case and because of that everything that we're doing is going to follow that same model taping token is with people perceiving that these tokens have some value or can go up in value in the future this is common sense it's his so simple the people make it so hard when they try to fit it into the enterprise just look at what works cryptocurrencies well yeah I mean it it it makes sense right especially when doc even Fiat currency was like we're just GonNa put our faith in this right backed by the trust of the US government but it's just paper so what's the difference Dan these digital tokens there isn't any it's what people believe is a value right that's that's kind of the the bottom line to it so so I'm wondering what you personally believe is going to be the turning point to mainstream adoption be specific your what action and do you think is going to need to take place and maybe tag that with Wendy you think that will happen China three months that specific and that that is super specific okay now let's let's unpack that why so China will come out with their own digital currency this is already in the works this is widely known they should have it launched very quickly and once that happens nations around the world are going to see say that digital currency is the wave of the future so in other words every nation it's going to be kind of a mad dash to get their own versions of there will be a US tyler coin not like US dollar coin stable coin but US dollar government backed coin and a Euro coin and so forth because everyone will realize if we don't do this we run the risk of losing you know noble influence in global dominance and the US dollar because it is kind of the international currency It will be a very big push to get the US dollar into a digital format very quickly now whether that will look like bitcoin. I mean certainly it's GonNa look very different it's not going to be decentralized in the same way but that will really be the accelerate that is going to kick off This whole industry this to me seems inevitable it seems like common says the that's how things will play while that is the most specific and contact that I I've ever heard anybody state that a- and it took me a back I'm like Wow China three months travis we we were going to talk about that China's story on the last bad news and I debt and I thought I didn't think it was a big deal and now I'm kicking myself I'm like wait a second he's right I'm wrong this way thanks for telling my stories all the time that's why I make a great bad co host that's true you know in another thing that's happening actually happens today is wells Fargo has ching they're stable coin that way that they can easily allow their customers to easily transfer cash from point A. to point is sort of an internal thing but you know J. P. Morgan the J. P. O. J. p. m. coin some of that other stuff so like we're seeing these these these things happen in the peripheral right so not everybody sees this you're in the block chain crypto space day in day out like we are we see it so we see the adoption happening slowly in but eventually it's going to eat the world and I think that you know I thought that's going to be a huge thing when China does their digital wan that in the remedy that is that is big news in some of these other countries are starting to do that they're starting to explore that these banks are starting to explore that and again as you mentioned not decentralized so you know I think for these these centralized things start popping up I hopefully my hope is is that you know folks start seeing wait a second why do we we don't need to have decentralized companies managing all this when we have these decentralized solutions and so do you think that's going to maybe bring more people over to bitcoin over John Yeah I'll tell you the end game the end game is won money one money it's one world it's one planet we're going to have won money wants I hear Bob Marley one money.

here I think he's breaking has already I think he is cute so we're going to have a really good time with this interview you and I am holding your book Sir John In my hands right now that I picked up at coin mention in Philadelphia which which you you did not give me for Free I had to buy it but then you gave me a crypto which almost full value when I bought we'll talk about that a little bit but I tell you I found this really funny so joe comes up to the table where resell the books and he goes up like yeah I'd love a book and then a shirts twenty five dollars and this look on your face it would just a- keep flashing back to this because it was it was barely perceptible it was like really you're gonNA charge me for this book even though I'm going to have you on the show but then what you got out of it was twenty five dollars in crypto so it's essentially like you're getting the book for free that's never been done before in the publishing industry never know it hasn't been working to tell ever all you listeners how you can get one of these as well and you're GonNa want to and get a crypto rebate essentially a John the first thing I wanted to ask you is you know when did you visit the Queen and get knighted well the story comes from my first book which was the humor book called Prank the Monkey and the idea was I was going to prank the world's largest institutions so I- pranks like Michael Jackson Madonna I crank the irs in pranked the queen of England I said Your Majesty I wrote her a letter I said Your Majesty I would like to be knighted because I just thought Sir John Hargrave sounded so much more classy doesn't it does it is very classy gives you a lot of respect yeah so I got a letter back from Buckingham Palace on the official letterhead and basically the data in order to be knighted must do something honorable and I said well that's a lot of work so I went down to my local county courthouse where you can pay to have your name legally changed so for thirty five bucks I got my name changed today here Damn Sir John Hargrave so basically the queen told you to bugger off and you just did it yourself that's right it's the the the easy way to Knighthood Travis do that Travis I wanna I wanna be Surgical Noun Abuser says I'm going to be gender specific diffic- absurd travis better that's way better it's like do something noble I'm just going to spend thirty five bucks go down my name Jade's way easier I love that so so you you actually had a your background is you know when you started out you had this website Zogu would you say Zilog z Yuji right yeah you did all kinds of all kinds of hilarious type of stuff and so you know knowing that Joel and I are a bit of pranksters ourselves water but may before you get into some of the crypto stuff because I know our audience likes funny stop what are some of the more hilarious pranks that you pull well we did one where we faked a Michael Jackson showed up this ten thousand dollar a plate charity dinner here in Boston and we hired a lookalike actor to comment basically get in so they really gave him the are fake Michael They gave him the celebrity treatment he had his own table we we rented so for the evening and had a whole entourage and everything and they figured it out just as we were leaving the side door they came running after us as were pushing fake Michael into the limo and it was all over the front page of the Boston newspapers my gosh is he was being shoved in into the car into the Limo hands off me I swear it was smooth criminal it was like something out of a movie is just said now those were there that were like youtube days or is it before youtube when when was that eh because it sounds like that's the kind of thing for video yet there was a video that went with it it was just as youtube was starting to take off put my probably my most well known prank was something called the credit card prank I did back in the early days and we basically you know you know how assign your credit card your your signature every credit card receipt in nobody ever checks the signature I thought that was ridiculous so I basically went around signing dozens of receipts with just crazy names it just started with like Beethoven and Zeus and then it went into like hieroglyphics and like modern art in crazy stuff and I took pictures of these put it online it was one of the first big viral pieces and really built our websites dot com from that piece the credit card prick so kind of in the spirit of Ken Casey you are a merry prankster. That's that's what I'm getting here yeah I'm kind of a tack no pranksters so I started my career basically it's kind of a comedy technology writer and in my book blockchain for everyone I start with the story of this media company where I worked during the beginning of the Internet and my job was to make this stuff understandable to everyday people and to make it kind of accessible and fun and so I started out as a comedy writer I was a Geek at heart I really love technology and kind of combining comedy and technology was like my thing that was my stick and at night I would pull these outrageous crazy pranks at right about that on my My humor site which I I ran on the side that's great so now I also WanNa talk to you about yeah you wrote a book called mind the hacking right up and I think that's great I'm actually working on a project called stacking skills because I think it's it's sort of in the same line I think we we maybe were kindred spirits there Mr Mr Yeah I want I want to talk about mind hacking a little bit because I've found that a fascinating book I have actually actually bought that book and I didn't get any crypto refund so I'd like to get my grip to refund on that one if I could tell us tell us you have you give us a couple of quick little packs for our audience that could really maybe help them get level up a little bit what pewter and like any computer your mind can be reprogrammed and in fact we have kind of you know buggy thinking we have like bugs in our programming that we can kind of work around and so I tell the story of my own life and how I had a lot of crazy thinking and behavior going on and how I managed to kind of re program all of that and we actually have in that Book Mein Hacking we have a a a twenty one day program that you can follow vet basically teaches you these sort of mine hacking exercises that you can use to to to learn this so the simplest thing you can do is just to become aware of the mind so here's a simple thought experiment everybody can do it while they're listening to this just stop for second and just think about your mind just think about your mind and when you do that you see that there's something called the U. that separate from something called your mind and that separation of those two things is the big beginning of mine hacking because we have to do is be able to pull yourself out of your mom normally were lost in the mind movie the Mental Movie All Day Long if you can and start to develop the skill of separating you from your mind then you can start looking at it like a computer and hacking the code that runs it and that is ultimately what led me to blockchain was this understanding that I could build an entire early new life for myself. I could completely reprogram my life reprogram I thinking stack skills Travis who what I already Dan and become a leader of this new blockchain revolution and that's what Hap- cal farts of sorry I was just thinking about my mind.

"It is going to happen and the question is just like how our governments around the world going to respond to that very exciting. I mean talk about reinvention. That's reinventing money in the way so you don't need to have your swift guy in the back room anymore. Making these transfers between different currencies. We'll have one currency that everybody uses where one planet where one species. We should have have won money. That's the project that we're bilas. Wow i would think that that would be something like a government. You know who knows does it. Still it's still very wild westie so you're thinking something like facebook or google or some tech company could potentially pull this off and everybody he just signs up and then blam. That's the basements got a good shot at doing it because they've got such a global reach but there are a few other companies that that might be able to do that <hes> but that's why this new facebook project. The libra project has so much credibility is <hes>. They're already thirty on the phones of of two billion people. I think worldwide so that's yes yes so that's pretty good. They're already there mark and penetration but you know you have to remember that betamax rule you we. We don't always we don't always get the best thing. I still have a betamax so facebook could be betamax. You never know it could be laserdisc. We'd i watch all kurt russell and goldie hawn films on it every night and betamax. I'm not i loved dubbed betamax. It was so much better yeah so let's talk about how you ended up in poland where you in poland or was. This just wasn't pulling a funny scene in the book where i'm flying all around the world because this blockchain industry is really global and we chain for everyone. We really mean everyone know. It's happening everywhere. I'm in poland at one point. <hes> talking to a polish polish energy drink company and the idea we had was that they would create their own initial currency currency their own crypto currency right and it would be integrated into the can so to be clear. This was like a red bull of colon. It's like red poll. Okay okay will a red bull energy drink with low q._r. Code on it and you scan q._r. Code and you earn essentially a cryptocurrency orna token. You're kind of a little digital money. No different from like how you might earn rewards points at starbucks or something like that okay. The difference is that this would be really more money so this money you could trade and buy and sell on digital exchanges like you would buy and sell dollars. Okay the yan dan or into euros or something like that so we called. This idea. That can is coin so i go out to poland. I fly out there. I'm all hyped 'cause i've just had an energy drinks and i'm you've just had a red pole and i i walk into this room and i'm buzzing with excitement and ready to pitch and i am confronted with a trio of dour-faced executives who could not be less interested in the red pole idea and their c._e._o. Who was the guy who invited me there. Who i was there to see turns out. He was in singapore so the c._e._o. I find is in singapore and i'm like this makes no sense whatsoever them awesome no. I'm trying desperately pitch. This idea of the can is the coin this q._r. code and i look over at the c._f._o. Afo who is by the way does not even have a laptop. He's just got a yellow legal pad and on the pad is one word crossed out blockchain. No it did at least provide me with a funny story in the book but it also gave us another idea which is what if the book itself comes with crypto currency so what have we use this same idea so i went back to simon and schuster unlike look the cover or is the coin. I'm not going to give up. I'm still like on this idea of mike imaginative in the book. We've got a little q._r. Code you scan the q._r. Code and you get the bitcoin and my editor jeremy ruby strauss says <hes> you know the last time i heard an original idea in the book. Publishing industry industry was never and that is an original idea. I said thank you so we tried to make this happen. It turns eh very difficult for many heck nicole reasons to include bitcoin with every book but we did pretty easy to steal right. That is the big. The problem is we into a bookstore in a way that like somebody wouldn't just sit there and scan and the q._r. code like hoover. We're up all the bitcoin and never by the books rate war like redeem the bitcoin and then return the book is books are returnable. Bitcoin is not right so okay other. They're all these problems doing it and <hes> we spent many many hours but finally figured out an alternate solution <hes> so i connected with this company called queen in base <hes> and another company called maker that makes us crypto currency called die d._a. And they basically said look we will <hes> kinda cosponsor this if you would like to offer this to people who buy the book we will give them five dollars worth of this die crypto currency in a coin base wallet because to them they want to get more people using this coin wallet app and they want to get into the hands of more people mike. This is a win because now we're getting the people on the blockchain blockchain for everyone. We're getting people by. The book like this is just a win. Everybody runs grape so we did this deal but then i said i've got a way to make it even better leads stead of five dollars. Make it twenty five dollars. 'cause the book retails for about twenty five dollars. You're getting twenty five dollars. You're essentially getting the book for free so we said let's do it and that's what we've done. So if you go to blockchain for everyone and your listeners can can buy a copy of the book that will come with twenty five dollars of this die cryptocurrency along with it you can redeem it knack for cash or or you can use it in the coin wallet to to buy goods and services and it's never been done before. It's really excited. Wow that's really neat you know i we we had this chat hat before because i wanted to go try and get twenty five dollars of die and <hes> and unfortunately you you gave me a copy of the book so i paused but as as as you as you suggest it i still kind of want to get my free book and my and my die and then i'll just gift my my other copy sure yeah let's do it. I think i will mostly just because i've never bought any crypto. So i kind of want some some sort of crypto coin before i die and yes before i die. Obviously i'm not gonna die anytime soon. I'm hoping to make it to immortality as we say or so. No not immortality more like death is optional face yes but yeah larry what say that again the singularity that he heard it. Yes yes right right right where we can upload. Yes some versions that that'd be great great. Okay wow so that yeah. I mean that's my vision for you to my vision for everyone. Is you know those of us who were so excited excited about this technology <hes> we got involved with it like we bought a little bit of it and that changes everything because then you become and owner and then you start thinking about this stuff in a new way and you start thinking about the nature of money and an internet of money and and why does the dollar value and it's just such an interesting <hes> concept to play with and you start thinking about this once you own it and that's why we wanted to get as many people as possible onto the blockchain meaning owning these digital assets and that's why it's such a great deal yeah. It's like <hes> changing the the way you think about what money really is yeah exactly yeah. Is it in the paper in your wallet. You yeah no not really not. It's not just a representation 'cause money is whatever we agree. It is when you were sitting backstage in your secret. <hes> swift room there at the bank like that wasn't he's paper was not that wasn't cash but it was money. It was just a number it was a number flying through the air or one one account to another and then there were apor that just showed how much the number of the hidden in the past and that is the nature of money. It really is kind of all in our heads. It's all just what we agree it. Is that had yeah. I've had that conversation with my dad and i think blew his mind. This was back when i started keeping money a lotta people keep money. I got lucky. I really got lucky so i got so i oh i've started investing and one of my rules of investing is is don't take that money out there. That's for later so i don't have to work forever right. I call him lovingly. Refer to it as the pile right and to me the pile is it's different than money. It's our like it's more like a fire right and i and if you add more wood to the fire then it'll burn longer right and i started saying these things that my dad and he's like what are you talking. He's he's got this attitude where he he keeps money to buy things and then he doesn't have money anymore. He's he never got. The idea of the pile is fire for you. That's really interesting. It's like a fuel <hes>. It's like a field and if i can use that i think that's a really useful analogy. So much of the book is about investing and one of the things i i wanted to do when i wrote this book like the words blockchain investing that was like an oxymoron you know nobody thought of this stuff is investment. They thought of is maybe maybe like. Speculative or kind of you know. Bitcoin was sort of like drug money or the dark web or things like that right right right really find to not only legitimise it that let's say look if you didn't buy a little bit of this five years ago financial planners you know you have basically missed out on on the single greatest money earning opportunity of our time but you also have to think about and this is a great lesson to come from my personal story. Is you have to think about it as hedging risk like it's basically a life of your portfolio in tiny sleep. Yeah i lay it out as like it's i'm talking like between two and a half to maybe ten percent should be in these blockchain based digital asset of your overall investment portfolio but if you do that and i show you all the math very clear over the last four years in the stock market by market would have increased about twenty percent but the stock market bond market market with a little bit like two and a half percent bitcoin would've doubled those returns and the stock market bond market ten percent in these old coins over the last four years ten thousand dollars would have grown to two hundred thousand dollars two hundred thousand dollars in four years and that means you the hour of these new digital. You'll assets that you do have to think about them in a smart way. Be willing to lose it all and do your research rome my book right yeah. It is definitely a how high risk asset at this point right..

"That's just enormously satisfying so let's get into like how how how the so you went through this really funny store. I mean there's this stuff about like you. Were in the fed right and then you you were in poland. You're pitching in trying to get money so i wanna hit some of those yeah because that sounds like a blast yeah yeah. We'll let me tell you kind of the origin story the book i because when i when i wrote it i wanted <hes> essentially you know this the question you asked the beginning what is blockchain and there's recurring enjoy in the book which is i spend six chapters talking about blockchain to someone and then at the end of it. They go so what's blockchain like that is the question that everyone asks asks and i realized as i was writing this book because at first i was like i wanna really user-friendly guides. Blockchain just explains this narrowed all these essays about how the technology works. I sent it off to my editor grade. Jeremy ruby strauss it. It's simon schuster. He's had a bunch of new york times bestsellers. I i trust him completely any reads the book and he gives me feedback and <hes> and he goes well. John is how talks it goes up while i am i wanna say the first section was pretty good <unk>. He goes. I sections pretty good. A second section needs a little work the third section you should probably rewrite and for a section just that entire thank you for your honesty on that you know so he's the greatest these agreements and he was right. He was totally right as i reread it. I was like this is is the same as every other blockchain book on the market. It's a bunch of sort of dry technical descriptions even though i'm trying to make it funny and bring all my comedy writing chops in here. It's still lil boring. Nobody's gonna finish it. I'm like i gotta write. Write a book that people are going to read from cover to cover and want them. We'll oh damn thing and then my friend. The great heather kelly this author <hes> who i respect a lot goes. Have you read. This book called. Save the cat the save the cat is a screenwriting book. It's for movie producers who are writing a screenplay and he says here's how you write a screenplay you ever see. He like a guy writing a screenplay in how have all this colored index cards on the board right it out all the he shows you how to do this in this book. Save the cat and i said that's it. We have to write this book as a story. It's got to be a movie. It has to have an act one act to act three and he has to have characters is in and you have to feel it and that is when i realized that all these blockchain books speak to the head and we had to have one speaks to the heart and that's with with the second wrapped of this was all about was i rewrote the entire freaking book a rewrite okay. This one is a story that really we spoke to the heart as well as the head brought this back to my editor jeremy and he comes back the next day and he goes. We got a page turner because i sat down and read that whole book in one sitting nine hours. He says that never happens and i was like jeremy. I will feed off of that complement for the next two years. Thank you hear me sound a little bit like dana carvey doing smell like george bush george bush nine and again alder this juncture. I'm gonna read the block chain now right now right now. Maybe later on on on the audible dot com audible bestseller just nominated for an audie award. It's true that is a thing audie award assignments. I mean just nominated it for an audio. Were listening to the podcast. You might be interested in listening to the audio book version. We put five hundred hours of work into that. I was was like writing the book a third time and so proud of it's really great. That's amazing okay so now i'm in. I can't wait to read the book a- so you live this story so how much of the origin story or so that's pretty much the origin story of the book and how it got to be a fun romp but can we get some of the stories some of your favorite without giving anything away obviously but let's just tease some of these funds stories that you used as source. I material for this amazing book yeah well. There's <hes> as you mentioned that the federal reserve so the federal reserve is the main bank of you learn a lot of financial financial stuff throughout this book and one of the things is there's a bank called the federal reserve. It's the main bank in america and its banking system but it's also your series of physical buildings. There's twelve banks. One of them is in boston where i'm located and i was invited to a blockchain conference at at the fed so i'm in this building you gotta go through all these security lines metal detectors and all this interrupt mystic in the building because you are literally surrounded by money so all around you are millions of dollars in u._s. Cash hash just like just surrounding you. It's crazy and i'm in the belly of the beast literally mentally the bay untrue <hes> i'm i'm in the promise right so i go down after this conference and i go have lunch and i'm taking a video call on on on on skype with a potential client for our company media sharon remember at this point media showers on full-time into blockchain. We're working with all these new blockchain entrepreneurs all these new startups and i'm talking hang with obliging company that wants to replace the u._s. dollar now. I just want to say that this is the very very definition of the word irony in the federal reserve working on a deal that is going thing to undo the federal reserve. That's amazing basically like virus right yeah. I'm like pages virus right in the heart. Yes reserve and i just loved it the irony of what we were doing in that moment crazy so if if this were like a movie then you know you you could have some of that data. You'd have a little u._s._b. Stick and you'd have a team. You know you sort of crouched in the corner like like talk a whispering furtively yeah well. No you have to have this whole like a swat team thing where you pass off off to this guy and he puts it in a cart and then somebody goes through an air duct and then they zip line down and they put the u._s._b. Stick into a server thing or something and suddenly we have blockchain dollar but now that's not what happened and all all this is happening in the lunchroom. That's what i love. Oh there you go. That's amazing. Yes wow so what's it. What's the fed like. I mean obviously. Do you get this sort of like feel of. I've yes oppression. Fact what's the word you definitely have. The feeling that you are in an extremely powerful an when important building in on one hand it feels like a government building but on the other is just so ornate and it's over the top like the wealth is how much on display ah yes right and the importance of of where you are even though you're the cafeteria where by the way a bowl of soup is a three trillion dollars now i i know you're joking but like i i worked at a bank for bow branch josh about six or eight months or so in downtown los angeles right so this bank is the bank of singapore. It's basically the government bank of singapore called e._s. bank. I don't know what i can't remember but it's basically the government bank of singapore so and they've got a <music> a branch there in l._a. And it's not like an ordinary bank right. It's not they don't have tellers and stuff right. It's a it's a business office for the bank think and what they do is they go out and find movies around hollywood for singapore to invest in <hes>. That's what that's what those guys are doing right but you know that's not either really near here nor there. I got like an insider view of what happens. When you're moving money around in a bank. It was really neat yup. They've got this little room. It's got like a glass window and and you have to have a keycard approx card to get in and only me and the other i._t. Person and then the swift guy was authorized to go in there ever and the only reason i had to go in there was because there was an i._t. Crap in there right so i went in there every day to to log got check check log right but it was just fascinating because there's this little piece actually no there was not a p._c. It was a <music> a networked a printer and every once in a while it would spit out a sheet of paper and that was money yeah. I was like wait a minute what just happened there so this guy would go in there and he's the guy and he would go all right money and then he would take that piece of paper apor out of the room and go over and use the numbers and that was money. I was like wow really to translate the swift. Guy is the international schol transfer guy swift work. That's receiving or sending these payments and every time the spits elevated some enormous sum of wealth from one account onto another probably to finance the movie crazy rich agents right now. We know how that happened right right. Yes yeah. It was just crazy that that's that was the twenty sixteen version of moving money around. It's just crazy to me. It didn't feel you know i grew up. When i was eighteen. I was in the air force and i you know there's levels of security in the government right yeah so my first well almost my whole air force career. I had all of the security. I was in the most secure buildings and so i did this happen right off the bat and you know weird. I guess i don't know i had one of those jobs in the air force that was it was very generic job radar riley from mash yeah. I was in edmond specialist right so those guys can basically be assigned anywhere so so. I just got luck of the draw that my unit required this clearance. It had nothing to do with me now. It's funny yeah had had. I not gotten the clearance then. They'd have to go back to pick somebody else but i did so i got it so you've got this top secret secret security clearance in the wars. You're also in the back room will one of three people who has access to international wire transfers. Yes a life right. I know i've seen the back rooms that that's i. I am very fascinated by seeing the behind the curtain. I like seeing behind the curtain i if i could get to disneyland and get to get the employees back background tour. Yes that would be amazing. I love being in the back rooms in the belly of the beast. That's that's amazing. Well given your track record and i think if you applied to work at disneyworld they would instantly take you backstage in the haunted mansion and say here you go now. Here's a controlled by the way here's the body the frozen corpse of walt disney. We keep it in a refrigerator right. He's in stasis right. We have yeah we have as you want to wake him up for ten or fifteen minutes. It's he's the people have ever been allowed to do this. You're one of them anything for me. That's amazing okay so all right so you you survive. <hes> i take it. You didn't replace the dollar with bitcoin or not not yet but i mean it is happening and i think with this new facebook crypto currency. It's called a libra is <hes> is is the next shot at that but that's ultimately what we're doing is. We're building a global currency for global economy. We're building one money for one world and i think it's inevitable..

"For the third time to vroom vroom beer. How's it going. This is going to be the third and best jeff. Most threes are really good right. If the third one is usually the best 'cause i work in and out right but the third one you got it you land. I think we're gonna nail it. I think we're going to thanks for. Thanks for coming back. Thanks for being here appreciate it. Thank you so you wrote a new book a block chain for everyone and it looks pretty amazing. It's on my shelf shelf and i'll admit i haven't had a chance to crack it open yet but it just looks so fun so i can't wait to learn what you've learned through this reinvent inch yourself journey so talk a little bit about the book yeah. It's a book about blockchain. Which is this technology behind a bitcoin coin in this new class of a digital money so blockchain is what we call the internet of money and i got involved with this back in two thousand thirteen when i bought a little bit of bitcoin okay and bitcoin is price kind of like a stock so the price goes up and down so when i bought it thirteen the price of a single bitcoins coins about one hundred twenty five dollars so i put a bunch of money into this it was really hard to buy had to make a wire transfer to belarus. I didn't even know where belarus was. They all like the first opening chapters of the book talk about this <hes> this very scary purchase. I made a bitcoin cut turns out that four years later in two thousand seventeen in that same bitcoin was twenty thousand dollars so it went from one hundred twenty five dollars to twenty thousand dollars which is like saying is is like a eighteen thousand percent return like the best investment. I will ever have made my life so so here. I have to interrupt you because this is proof. You're not a time traveler. Just just okay question an eighteen hundred. If if you had say like ben time traveler then you would have gone big and that twenty thousand would have been like twenty million or something right so this this is evidence that you just got lucky and you're not really a time traveler from the future. Maybe i'm downplaying my wealth. Ooh smarter okay. I got it so you're you're like a traveller from the show at any rate so excited about the potential of this new digital currency bitcoin in this whole new asset class which we call cryptocurrency as we call them all coins alternative alternative to bitcoin that i took my marketing company called media shower and i completely reinvented the company one hundred percent into this new technology called blockchain all of these clients all this business built over the years and like if you ever ever watched like a professional poker tournament and you see like the poker guy who liked puts is all in pushes all of his chips in one giant of that's what i did it on block shape. That's great. I love it. I love it so this is fun because i've had other folks on the podcast <hes> talk about blockchain crypto and bitcoin and the whole deal and and to be honest with you when when i listened to the show and while i was having the conversation i kinda got it and then instantly goes away then at somebody. If somebody were to ask me in in this moment right now what's blockchain and bitcoin all about i'd go. It's complicated. The real answer is i really don't get it. No no. I'm not too proud to admit that so. Maybe maybe today through your reinvention story of your life and that's hilarious <hes> <hes> i'm going to get a better understanding of what the hell blockchain is all about. I'm going to change your life because i'm gonna explain it one-sentence sweet. Are you ready. I'm ready hit me. Blockchain is the internet of money that's it chain is the internet of money the think about our our internet today's the internet of information and blockchain money so instead of trading information sharing information. We're sharing money money being very widely defined as anything of value right. Money is not just u._s. Dollars money is also things requent flyer points in starbucks rewards points and things like that anything of value but that's the internet of money. I like honey and like think about you know being involved in the internet in the early days the internet of information which is when i started my career and it it was amazing. It was the greatest time to be alive because they're all these on starting. We're like building this new thing i wanted. The comedy sites on the web was so exciting and blockchain. Blockchain feels exactly like that except it's a new internet and internet of money and it's moving even faster because there's so much more excitement so much more money money flowing into this system. That's it in a nutshell that help it. Does it helps because now my mind is sort of swimming around and thinking king about like a nerd stuff. It's like okay a network share things and so. It's so much easier to think about it that way <hes> yes. I think that is a nice summary so let's get into the weeds. So when did this reinvention story start was in twenty seventeen is that when you made that twenty grand yes so in twenty seven team we saw the potential for this and as i said we pivoted the whole company into this yes and twenty seventeen was an at almost like a <hes> a mania <hes> in this space there was a craze as it was everywhere that word everywhere it was everywhere and i mean we're just buckets of money being thrown at any yes in detail title and so for the first year it was amazing and we were like this is the greatest decision ever but what happened was in two thousand eighteen. The government got involved lawyers got involved and everyone began to see that we don't really know how to think about this new money johnny because they're kind of like stocks but they're not stocks kinda like currencies but they're not currencies there really something new and because of that uncertainty <hes> everybody everybody stop almost overnight it was like from if you remember like when the dot com bubble burst in two thousand it was very much like that so we called it crypto crypto winter in twenty so that when a bitcoin the price was kind of like my bellwether sort of like thing i was going crazy right and then it's sort of like i don't know if it literally crashed but i know the value stopped climbing so what herman so what was the the was that sort of like the bellwether and or i should say is that when winter came you're absolutely right the price of bitcoin bill weather for this whole market and the price went from like twenty thousand at its highest down to five thousand okay so now he's so you might say okay. Well you bought in one hundred hundred twenty five five thousand. It's still amazing but now you had all these people who had bought in twenty thousand who now saw this just massive passive wealth just destroyed overnight and that is what started you know the slowdown and then it turned into a trickle and then and then the trickle froze and that turned into crypto winter so this period of twenty eighteen in the book i i have i have the rise is is part. One in the the fall is part two and this was the fall where these were extremely dark days and they were incredibly difficult in the process of reinvention. I believe is one in which the highs are really high and the lows are really low because you are operating in a new space. You're operating operating in a new world and that's what we found was. This new world was dark and scary and uncertain nobody will there was no playbook. We were inventing everything wild west right. It was absolutely like the wild west frontier because like everybody involved and when i when i say everybody i mean literally everybody everybody that is involved in any sort of secure transaction so think about that. I'm talking to the audience how title company right that every every little person that is in your wallet when you buy your house is interested in and secure transactions and they kind of like it the way it is right so that's just an example of one industry tree that is interested in like yes. We want to know about it but we also don't want to stop making money all right so yes. Yes that's right. They don't need to reinvent themselves right and and you're absolutely right. It's banks. Financial services company is real estate. It realistic government its identity companies. It's like your equity facts. Yes bureaus. It's anybody that has secret <unk>. Secure transactions is you're saying that's what we mean by the internet of money and this is a disruptive technology which means it is going to require them to radically rethink their businesses right. That's what we were all so excited about in two thousand seventeen but then in twenty eighteen it was like reality sets real like okay so what was our how how was it sort of like some big bank or some big government agencies sort of like laying down some sort of law aw what what was the what was the thing that brought on that that cool down to the to the contrary. I believe that it was <hes> lawyers. Lawyers getting involved okay all right. All these companies were now launching their own coins are alternatives to bitcoin so this became a very popular way of raising money as you would start a new companies ran this new crypto currency people can buy my cryptocurrency and essentially get sort of like a piece of the the value of my company will then the lawyer started getting involved and saying wait a minute like that looks like a stock which means it's like under this set of laws we have in the late then uh-huh regulation became a question and what the lawyers will always advise. You is be conservative be timid. Don't take take. Maybe a lot of money for my partially right right. He didn't know any more about blockchain than anyone else but to make money yes huge yeah and so i think because of that again that that that torrent of money began to slow down <hes> and then you know that combined with the price of bitcoin dropping made this this really difficult period okay all right gotcha all right now. We're we're at the beginning of winter. I suppose where we're midway through. Winter and people are emaciated associated lawing all right. You're on your warmth jeff. Yes you're eating the horses robbins. Robin's minstrels are nervous. Thank you for getting that n._s. Down down with your your reference okay so so then slowly for those of us who endure and this is the story of reinvention is when we endure when we <hes> really just have that unshakeable self confidence and we soldier on and we learn new ways of working in the world and we you know much of the book is just my personal journey and i really look at it as more like less of a technological logical book is more like a spiritual book of light. Here's how to reinvent yourself out to make it through these very difficult transitions of of life <hes> encountered the mind hacks or the the affirmations the sort of self talk that i use to make it through to get to the other side and then <hes> now today in twenty nine t call cryptos spring blockchain is gone mainstream. You might have heard facebook is launching its own crypto currency and we are in a new era at this point where blockchain is finally really becoming <hes> a real industry and those of us who who lasted who survived. We're we're becoming the leaders of this new world and that's just enormously satisfying so let's get into like how how how the so you went through this really funny store..
"john hargrave" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"You just you do think about injuries. Did you think he was thinking about the knee last night. He could say that he wasn't but in in the back of your mind is even a couple of plays where he you know seem like half stutter-stepped with it and not really ryo put it out there but he had a non contact injury that means nobody him for this to happen so for him to sit here and say that is less than a year later that you aren't worried about that that that didn't affect you any. I think that would be a little bit of a stretch from the true. Did you have an injury and think about it. I had high ankle sprain and thought about it like that was not. Even you know. That was a six week thing thing but coming back like somebody fell at my feet. The first i would i would kick the ankle off the way like a who wanted to hit it right right so for him to say he's not the thing about that and he actually had a major surgery. I don't believe us through baker. Mayfield <hes> g. q. magazine colin out daniel jones. He called out teammate duke <unk> johnson earlier this year. He called out hugh jackson. He's putting it out there. What do you make of it. <hes> you know he's just a either a confident a a very confident person or or riveria cocky person <hes> right now. They're feeling good. You know he's won six games. I think that's more games than they won. The last three years might be twice prices many games in the last three years <hes> so they're getting a lot of you know. He's getting a lot of praise right now and you know they're the team that they're talking about. He has as weapons now. You know it's no longer we wanna be well. He doesn't have this. He doesn't have that. You have major weapons now. The defense is doing the d. line. Good yea yeah yeah. The defense is doing well so now is is put over shut up in anything less than playoff appearance from the browns right now as far as the way. They're talking the way he's he's talking. You need to shut up would be a little bit of a disappointment right when you put disappointing yeah when you put yourself out there if they do a super bowl be the greatest accomplishment accomplishment arguably ever. It'll make baker legend. If the playoffs they'll be the joker the league they'll be mocked and made fun of you guys talking about you know they see them as the favorite in the north light i don't. I don't see that it's the cleveland browns you know until they show me. Something is still the cleveland browns. I yeah i think pittsburgh's got better players. Oh yeah they have a better player around. Yes i think they do look at pittsburgh's. Defense officials told defense nothing but first and second rounders or guys that they you know brought in with a big contract. I believe the only starters on a defense. That's out of the first. The second round is <hes> john hargrave who actually had eight sacks last year right and vince williams their offensive lines the best in the a._f._c. big bands a hall of famer a juju smith schuster is very good james washington. Has he's coming around. Oh he is really sore and he's throwing promise right now. Especially from what you know he was doing last year by the way so jerry jones came out and made a joke about zeke's contract zeke said i i didn't. I thought it was disrespectful. You gotta be careful about talking about guys money. That's in the mob. There's always like don't do heroin and don't mess with people's kids and in football domeisen the guy's money right. How did the jerry jones comment land for you agassi. Were you know zeke and his agent were right like we're talking about my career. We're talking about this. You know hughes contract..
"john hargrave" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain
"Find ways that that impacted game and to make big plays at the end to be too. So yeah, definitely very patriot. Like in how they win that game this year. Today. Are you in agreement? Are you giving them in a fence as well? Oh, yeah. I ate at least because you know, yard is fine everything, but they never they never made it in the end the end of the red zone on their those three field goal drives. I mean, they kept him out of the reds. And they kept him. You know, nine nothing is very manageable. It's a lot better. Like you said in seventeen or twenty one nothing the Monday played in the second half the last four drive. I think they were three and out. It was just it was tremendous. And they and they kept the pressure on all day on Blake Bortles, get comfortable in the pocket. So yeah, it was a it was a tremendous performance especially without Steph onto it in there. You've on hardware had a great game fantastic and TJ what? Which is he's running into a store. So yeah, I definitely give give him a. Well with that being said. Here's what I'm thinking. Those two guys you just mentioned or definitely in the running for valedictorian. I would think so let's one of those two. So are we giving it too because I think foreign away those are the guys now granted the defensive back. Look good. But we don't know. We just don't know what what they they weren't even test then game in the secondary. I I'm not gonna complain. They they weren't tested. Vince Williams have very good game. But do prohibit decent game. Hayward had a very good game. But I think the game on defense the two big guys were Jay wobble. And they were Terence Trent what I don't know. If you knew his excuse me, Trent Jordan watt, excuse me, if his name, and I was trying to be all cool and bring out his full name, and I bought it. So that's on me. But so look one of those and we can't split it. So let's let's give on the valedictorian. Well, I I to my own and we have to give it the TJ walks. That's where predictive last week, but I mean in all seriousness, actually, dad. Yeah. Last three seconds had dating back to the Carolina game. He's caused a forced fumble. I mean, they the other team if you're covering, but still forcing fumbles, and then, of course, you go back to the today the forest take six against Carolina. But you know, as far as yesterday, he's definitely heading shoulders the best defender in that game. So yeah, definitely giving it the TJ what? You know, what I did too online on behind the curtain. I gave it to him. I was going to go in split it up. Jay wobble. Had a very good game. I love that nickname, by the way. But John Hargrave. Fantastic game. Yo he almost had a third sec and shit. Don't have a third second Bortles going away from. But j what right now is the real deal in the criticism on PJ is the fact that he he'll go ahead and and get them in bunches. But I don't care about that. The guys ten sacks and playing good football. And he's proven. He's he has to prove that he could do it down the stretch. I don't think there's any stopping him. I think I don't I think he'd get stronger. I think that first year was that that period where you have to adjust. And he still had a good year. Ten sack..
