Massive shout out to everyone today in the live chat. Please let me know where you're tuning in from. And at the end of the show, I'm going to be reading everyone's comments out loud. Let's kick off today's show with our market watch as we do each and every day, the entire crypto market back in the green with Bitcoin back above $27 ,100 and checking out coinmarketcap .com, the current crypto market cap on the climb at $1 .08 trillion with roughly $27 billion in volume for the past 24 hours, Bitcoin dominance at 49 .2 % and the Ether dominance at 18 .4%.

And how many of you agree with Stacey Herbert that this pump is due to Bukele's speech scheduled for this evening? Let me know, fam. And now let's dive into today's Bitcoin technical analysis. Check out the charts and what's popping with the king crypto. Bitcoin could see fresh upside volatility as the price action and the strength revisits a key level according to a classic metric. In a new post, John Bollinger, creator of the Bollinger Bands volatility indicator, says Bitcoin was positioned for a breakout decision. That's right. After hitting new September highs the day prior, Bitcoin has been challenging resistance levels out of reach since mid -August, according to data from Cointelegraph and TradingView. Now for Bollinger, the signs for Bitcoin are encouraging. Bollinger Bands use a standard deviation around the simple moving average to determine both the likely price ranges and volatility. And as Michael Saylor once said, volatility equals life force. Now, currently Bitcoin is putting in daily candles that touch the upper band. And when this happens, it can signal an imminent reversal back to the center band, or conversely, an inbound fit of upside volatility. Now narrow Bollinger Bands seen on Bitcoin recently lend weight to hopes that the latter scenario will now play out, quitting him here. And then there is the first tag of the upper Bollinger Band. After the new set of controlling bars were established at the lower band, he commented alongside this chart, the question is now, can we walk up to the upper band or is it too early to answer? What are your thoughts, chat? Let me know in the comments below. Now Bollinger characterizes the current mood among seasoned Bitcoin traders and analysts on the short -term timeframes. Despite the strength seen this week, caution abounds as various trend lines previously acting as support remain above the spot price. Now discussing the situation, we had on -chain monitoring resource, material indicators share the following. We have heavy technical resistance overhead at the key moving averages and support at the lower low. It is quite possible that we round trip the range. And with any luck, we'll see a legit test of the RS levels that will give us some clarity on where Bitcoin goes from here before the end of the week. And they also shared here in update number two, as noted earlier, it appears the Bitcoin bulls are gaining some momentum, but things are not always as they seem and goes on to share that sometime after last night's candle and close open, we've seen a new trend precognition signal develop on the daily chart and it seems to be bullish. I mean, we are breaking out. We are above 27 ,000. So let's freaking go. And also more strong foundation on the technicals. You can see Bitcoin hits yet another all -time high, which virtually means the network has never been this strong and this secure. Now I'm pretty stoked to tune into President Bukele's speech to the UN this evening. What do you think he has to share besides? I told you so. Let me know, fam. And again, welcome to everyone just joining us for the live show. Lots to continue to cover. So let's continue breaking it down. Next, let's discuss this adoption fund, which is a pretty big deal coming out of Japan. Let's go check this out. Japan's largest investment bank, Numura's digital asset subsidiary, Laser Digital Asset Management, launched the Bitcoin adoption fund specifically for the institutional investors. Bring it. The official announcement noted the Bitcoin -based fund will be the first in a range of digital adoption investment solutions that the firm plans to introduce. Now Numura is a Japanese financial giant with over $500 billion worth of assets, which basically that's half a trillion, baby, offers brokerage services to leading institutional investors. The Bitcoin fund launched by its digital asset arm will now offer investors direct exposure to BTC. The Laser Digital Bitcoin Adoption Fund offers long key exposure to Bitcoin. The financial giant has chosen Kamanu as its regulated custody partner. The Bitcoin fund is a portion of Laser Digital Fund's segregated portfolio company that has been registered as a mutual fund in accordance with the Cayman Islands regulatory authority. Now, Laser Digital Asset Management head Sebastian said the Bitcoin is one of the enablers of this long -lasting transformational change and long -term exposure to Bitcoin offers a solution for the investors to capture this macro trend. Now, the Bitcoin adoption fund might be the first of its kind launched by Numura and the digital asset arm, but the Japanese investment banking giant has been investing in the digital asset ecosystem for quite some time already. In fact, September of last year, the firm launched its digital asset venture capital arm to stay at the forefront of digital innovation. And also won Dubai's virtual asset regulatory authority license to operate in the country. The long -only Bitcoin adoption fund for investors in Japan comes amid a growing discussion around Bitcoin -based investment products from regulated and mainstream financial giants. The United States SEC approved two Bitcoin ETFs, even though there is a delayed decision specifically on the spot. Bitcoin ETFs. What's up with that, Mr. Gensler? Just saying. And apart from the US, Canada and focused investment products over the past couple of years. So there you have it, mass adoption, let's freaking go, especially on the institutional level. How many of you are in Japan? I know we have some in our audience out there. Let me know. And have you ever heard of this company before? Any plans in investing through them? Let me know how you guys feel. And now let's break down the latest. It gets more surprising and shocking every day with what all is going on with Bankman -Fried and FTX. Now his parents are involved. His parents are being sued by FTX. And it's just a nightmare of a mess, to say the least. So let's break down this latest story regarding SBF. Now, Joseph Bankman, the father of the former FTX CEO, Sam Bankman -Fried, complained to his son about the salary he was receiving during his employment at FTX US, turning the issue into a family matter. In a September 18 filing with the US Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware, FTX debtors filed a complaint against Bankman and Barbara Fried, alleging that SBF's parents misappropriated millions of dollars through their involvement in the exchange's business. And according to the court documents, Bankman's contract with FTX US should have provided a $200 ,000 annual salary following a leave of absence from the Stanford Law School in December 2021. However, Bankman seemed to express ignorance about the terms of the contract, claiming to both FTX US and his son that he was expecting a $1 million annual salary. What about all that property in the Bahamas, fam? What about all that? Hundreds of millions worth of properties? Just wanted to throw that out there. The complaint states that Bankman was putting Barbara on this, suggesting that SBF's mother may have been able to persuade her son to follow through with the salary change. Things get even more interesting. So according to the complaint, Bankman's influence paid off, with SBF later providing his parents $10 million from Alameda Research. Can you talk about commingling? A 16 .4 million property in the Bahamas, funded by FTX Trading, the ability to expense roughly $90 ,000 to FTX Trading on the island nation in the Bahamas, and options to purchase company stock. Now, when reached out to the legal team representing Bankman and Fried, but did not receive a response at the time, unfortunately, the legal action brought by the debtors was the latest in the bankruptcy case involving FTX and many of its subsidiaries filed in November of last year. Bankman Fried also faces 12 criminal charges to be spread across two trials, starting in October of 2023, which is right around the corner, fam, and March of 2024, right before the halving, scheduled for April of next year. And since the federal judge revoked his bail in August, Bankman Fried has been largely confined to the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn. Where's Brooklyn at? Before the start of his October trial, then on September 19th, a three -judge panel heard an appeal from SPF's legal team requesting the former FTX CEO to be released from jail in order to prepare for the trial, citing the lack of internet access and first amendment issues. All I got to say is this, I mean, how many people realistically have access to the internet in jail? Why should he? Million dollar question right there. But what are your thoughts, fam? How do you think this is likely to play out? And do you think that Bankman Fried's parents are just as guilty as SPF himself with the commingling and the fraud of going up north of $30 billion, making it the biggest scam in history that we're aware of? Hence why we call him Mini Madoff, because he made off with billions of dollars worth of investors' money, and Gary Gensler and the SEC was protecting him behind closed doors. So it's going to be very interesting to see how all this is likely to play out. Now let's discuss post halving. We all know there is a halving scheduled roughly six months out. We all know post halving, the price action is most likely going to reach a new all -time high and enter price discovery mode. Well, this analyst shares a very intriguing target. So let's break this down, shall we? And welcome to y 'all just joining us. Say hello in that live chat. Let me know where you're tuning in from. I stream live here seven days a week from Puerto Rico. Synonymous analyst Rhett Capital tells his followers on X that Bitcoin can rally above $80 per ,000 coin in the months following next month's event. For the halving, send it. Let's go. The Bitcoin halving cuts the Bitcoin miners' rewards in half, as we all know, expected to take place in April of next year. And while Rhett Capital is a long -term bull on Bitcoin, he notes that it is possible for Bitcoin to continue its downtrend before the halving, putting him here. Hang in there and make the most of any deeper downside in this pre halving period. You won't see the post halving parabola in the outlines here in this chart. It shows you in the yellow, the pre halving period, then in the pink, the post halving resistance, and then in the green, you can see the post halving parabola when we hit those new all -time highs. Now, Rhett notes that Bitcoin may repeat its 2019 bear market cycle when it traded within a triangle pattern before breaking out and starting off the bull market, as he shares here, if Bitcoin continues to form lower highs, could Bitcoin fill the CME, which is the Chicago Mercantile Exchange gap, at $20 ,000 later this year or in early 2024? So it makes a good point. There is currently a gap sitting at that $20 ,000 psychological level. And he continues, if so, the possible path could be consolidation to the apex of the black triangle before finally breaking out to close the halving. And you can see that triangle right here in this chart. Now, looking at the chart, he seemed to suggest that Bitcoin will confirm the triangle breakout in April of 2024, followed by a rally towards his long -term target. Now, let me know your thoughts, chat. How many of you agree that Bitcoin is likely to break out to a new all -time high, entering price discovery mode in 2024, the year of the halving? Let me know. And what are some of your targets? I'd also like to point out that the Stock the Flow model and Plan B, creator of that model, he suggests a $100 to $1 million range price for the King Crypto post halving. We also have some very other bullish predictions, which I cover on a daily basis here on the channel. But I'd love to know your personal prediction. I think we reached the cycle peak personally sometime in 2025, but I think 2024, we enter that price discovery mode. But I'd love to know your thoughts and your opinions in the comments right down below. And now let's break down our next story of the day and discuss the latest from the macro guru, Raoul Pal, who is suggesting that the Bitcoin market cap and crypto market cap as a whole does something between 5 and 10x for this upcoming bull cycle. Now, you do the math. We have a crypto market cap right now. I'm going to ballpark it at a trillion. We have a Bitcoin market cap. I'm going to ballpark it at a half a trillion, which is 500 billion. So hypothetically, if we were to 10x Bitcoin in and of itself, we're talking about a 5 trillion dollar Bitcoin market cap, which would be half the current market cap of gold. Now, with the entire crypto market cap, we can potentially hit 10 trillion. Now, also note, back in November of 2021, when we hit that all time high of 69 ,000 in November of last year, the total crypto market cap was just north of that 3 trillion dollar market cap. So he's so let's break this down and shout out to Raoul Pal. Here we go. Former Goldman Sachs executive Raoul Pal says the next bull cycle can bring an explosion in the market cap of all of the digital assets. That's right. In a new interview with Altcoin Daily, the macro expert says he expects a huge increase in the adoption of digital assets, and that can cause the total market cap of crypto to skyrocket as much as 900 % from its current value during the next bull market. Quoting the analysts here, obviously, I think we'll go well through new all time highs. I think the whole ecosystem of crypto will go from 425 million users where we're at today. And I think at the end of this cycle, there'll be a billion users by that kind of use cases in which we have talked about. And let's not forget, we have got central bank digital currencies that are known as CBDCs and stable coins. There is a lot going on still. So if this entire space is going to grow 2 .5 X in the number of users, well, the market cap of the entire space is five or 10 X. Send it. Let's go. Pal also says he is closely watching development of layer two Altcoin projects for new use cases, which could boost the value of their individual market cap, quitting him again. And then let's see how people value layer twos in this. We don't really know how layer twos accrue much value. Do we have to have a massive amount of transactions in which case then you need stuff like Ticketmaster with millions and millions and millions of transactions to drive value to those chains because they batched them and batched them down to Ethereum. So there you have it. And to watch this interview, he did Raul Pal, the macro guru with Altcoin Daily entitled best cryptocurrency investing strategy into 2024. Check the show notes, blow the video in the description and let me know your thoughts on his personal prediction. Do you feel post having that the market cap for the entire crypto market can likely 10 X from the current valuation along with Bitcoin surging 10 X to roughly a five trillion market cap? And hypothetically, if the macro guru is correct, where do you think that would likely take the Bitcoin price? Well, let's run some hypothetical math. Bitcoin was the 10 X from the current price action of 27 ,000. Well, that's $270 ,000 per coin. Take that. And as we all know, Bitcoin rises like that, the entire crypto market cap would go along for the ride, including the altcoin. So please let me know in the chat, fam, which altcoins, if any, are you most bullish on in the crypto market? And what are your thoughts surrounding Raul Pal being so bullish on Solana? A few months back, I read in an interview he shared that 80 % or more of his portfolio was specifically in an altcoin called Solana. So I'd love to know your thoughts. Obviously, he has a high risk tolerance as I look at that particular cryptocurrency to be very risky, especially with all that went in with the venture capitalists and SPF and FTX exchange pumping that particular all. So I'd love to know how you feel regarding all of that. And with that being shared, fam, now let's discuss Peter Thiel and his $4 million price prediction, as well as rumor has it, and I'll be covering this as well, that he dumps most of his Bitcoin position at the top of the market practically 30 days before the crash. So let's break this down because Peter Thiel was actually one of the keynote speakers at the Miami Conference for Bitcoin. And here's what he had to share as I transcribed his speech, and then we'll discuss him reportedly making $1 .8 billion cashing out on his eight -year bet around the time he was touting these all -time high predictions. So here we go. He says, the enemy's list is a list of people who I think are stopping Bitcoin. He says there is a lot of them. They tend to have nameless, faceless bureaucratic perspectives, which of course is one of the ways they hide. He goes on to share, we are going to try to expose them and realize that this is sort of what we have to fight for Bitcoin to go up, 10x or 100x from here. Now, just FYI, to give you some perspective, at the time he made this prediction on stage at the Bitcoin Miami Conference, Bitcoin was trading at roughly $43 ,000 per coin. So you run the math. 43 ,000 times 100x is over $4 million per Bitcoin. So you know that? Let's continue with what he had to share. The central banks are going bankrupt. We are at the end of the fiat money regime. How many of you agree with that statement? I agree there 100%. The first person on the list is Berkshire Hathaway CEO, Warren Buffett. Thiel put up a picture of Buffett with two of his most famous quotes about Bitcoin. One was rat poison and the other, I don't own any and I never will. I also like to point out now since then, Warren Buffett has much indirect exposure to Bitcoin through Bitcoin mining stock companies and etc. So go figure. If you can't beat them, join them, right? And he goes on. He opined, I think the direct in it. Yeah, and I say also Charlie Munger goes along with him. Now, feel further noted that Buffett has a bias and makes him long on fiat money system and money managers who follow the Berkshire Hathaway executives advice will pretend it's complicated to invest into Bitcoin. I think we call that FUD. Fear, uncertainty and doubt. Now expect nothing less from one of the wealthiest people in the fiat money matrix Ponzi scheme. You know what I mean? So just saying. The next person on the list of Bitcoin's enemies is the one and only JP Morgan Chase CEO, Jamie Dimon, or as Max Kaiser calls him, Jamie the tapeworm. They'll put diamonds picture up with the following quote. I don't call them crypto currencies. I call them crypto tokens because currencies have rules of law behind them, central banks and tax with authorities. Now you guys already know how I feel personally about JP Morgan Chase CEO, Jamie Dimon. So I won't go any deeper there. But anyways, we know he's an enemy of Bitcoin and always has been. The next picture he put up was of the BlackRock CEO, Larry Fink, with the following quote. I see huge opportunities in a digitized crypto blockchain related currency, and that's where I think it is going to go. Now just FYI, Larry Fink is the CEO of the largest asset management firm in the entire world, which owns a large share in virtually all the companies in the S &P 500, and that is BlackRock. They currently have over $10 trillion in assets under management. And for a long time, he was spreading FUD regarding Bitcoin. But guess what? Like I mentioned earlier, if you can't beat them, join them because they just most recently, a few months ago, they submitted their application for a spot Bitcoin ETF, which ultimately means they're going to be introducing this to the institutions which have trillions upon trillions of dollars as there's currently north of $700 trillion in total addressable market, and they want their piece of the Bitcoin pie. So he goes on to share, the PayPal co -founder added that Fink's quote is somewhat representative of the whole genre of Bitcoin attacks that need further context, stating that pro -blockchain is an anti -Bitcoin term, very typically. Feel then brought up the environmental, social, and governance, ESG standards, elaborating the following, the label they have come up with, and perhaps the real enemy is ESG. I think that ESG is just a hate factory. Also like to throw out there, Elon Musk, he stopped taking Bitcoin payments for Tesla, and he says it's because of the FUD regarding this ESG, and we all know it's not more than FUD, and it's already been proven that Bitcoin is more than 50 % clean energy. So the million dollar question, when will the world's supposedly wealthiest man, Elon Musk, when will he start accepting Bitcoin payments again for Tesla? Isn't that a great question, and wouldn't you love to know the answer to that? Maybe you should ask Elon and tag him on X and see what he says. Anyways, feel stressed. You can always ask the question, what's the difference between ESG and the CCP, the Chinese Communist Party? Well, when you think ESG, you should be thinking of CCP per H. Now, he also goes on to share, it is the finance gentocracy that runs the country through whatever silly virtue signaling or hate factory to them, just like ESG, the billionaire concluded. This is what I would call and what you have to think of as a revolutionary youth movement, and we have to just go out from this conference and take over the world. So there you have it, fam. What are your thoughts surrounding Peter Thiel's prediction that we are likely to 100X, and along with his enemies list, as it seems, a lot of the enemies have come around and now have direct exposure to BTC, but it doesn't stop there because around that time he was making this $4 million Bitcoin price prediction. He allegedly dumped most of his position cashing out and with over a billion dollars in profits for his fund. So let's also break this down as this is also very relevant. How many of you were able to watch the speech he gave at that Bitcoin conference? It was epic, to say the least. I recall it now. So here we go. Check it out. Peter Thiel's venture capital firm reportedly made $1 .8 billion closing out its crypto positions around the time when he was an early Bitcoin bull, still predicting the token's price to surge by 100X. And again, from 43 ,000 price action, 100X means over 4 million. Founders Fund had cashed out almost all of its bets on digital assets by March of 2022, according to the Financial Times report that cited people familiar with the matter. But Thiel was still backing Bitcoin, obviously, when he spoke at the crypto conference in Miami the following month. He went on to share where at the end of the fiat money regime, he said, adding that the token's price could increase 100 fold from its level at the time, which was reported at $44 ,000 per coin. That prediction was proven false and as rising interest rates and failures, the high profile firms like Celsius Network, Three Arrows Capital, FTX, Terra Luna dragged the crypto sector into the prolonged bearish winter. Now Bitcoin plummeted by over 60 % in 2022 and was trading at under 17 ,000 by the end of the year. And I believe the bottom currently for the cycle is 15 ,700. How many of you feel that that bottom is in? Let me know, chat. Founders Fund first started pouring money into crypto all the way back in 2014, when Bitcoin was only trading at roughly $750 per coin. So by the time Bitcoin reached its all time high in November of 2021, it had surged 8 ,500 % from that particular level. Not too shabby for a seven year run, wouldn't you say? Now Thiel has a long track record as one of Silicon Valley's most prominent tech investors. He took early stakes in startups, which include Facebook, Elon Musk's SpaceX, and ride hailing app Lyft, and even co -founded PayPal back in 1998. Thiel is also a high profile supporter of the Republican Party and continued to voice his support for Donald Trump since the former president left office in January of 2021. The fund held around two thirds of his portfolio in Bitcoin at one time, but now not has significant exposure to crypto according to FT's sources. So there you have it. Fam, what are your thoughts surrounding his prediction and him cashing out at around that time he was making those all time high predictions of 100X? Let me know, fam.

A highlight from Jordan Peterson: Scrap the Banks, Adopt Bitcoin | EP 825
"It's all going to zero against Bitcoin, it's going up for everyone, you're against Bitcoin, you're against freedom. Yo, welcome to Simply Bitcoin Live, we're your number one source for the peaceful Bitcoin revolution, we will be your guide through the separation of money and state. Crazy news, Jordan Peterson, one of the most influential people on planet earth in terms of media, basically said the quiet part out loud, he said, scrap banks, adopt Bitcoin. And the crazy part about this, right, is what you hear from a lot of the political rhetoric, right, what you hear from a lot of the people that correctly identify the problems, like Xavier Millie is a great example of this, right, he's correctly identified the issue, the issue is central banking, the issue is the state, right? But you if correctly identify the issue without providing a solution, you're not really going anywhere, like the whole end the Fed movement, shout out Ron Paul, because I think he really, really started that in the United States, like, that's great, right? But what it and the Fed, and then what, and the Fed and then Bitcoin. So when someone who has that much influence outside of the Bitcoin echo chamber is not only saying scrap banks, but is actually presenting the solution to his mainstream audience that is not, that is not inside the Bitcoin echo chamber, that is a really, really big deal. So we're going to get into that, he has a massive following not only on YouTube, also on Twitter, I know a lot of people don't agree with his politics. And you know, and I respect that. And I understand that. But what I ask you is to zoom out, it's not his, his politics are irrelevant to this cause to what we're trying to achieve here. And what we're ultimately trying to achieve is a separation of money and state peacefully, people waking up realizing that no one should have the ability to create money for free that someone else has to work for. And they opt out into not only a, not only a currency that is not inflationary, but is actually deflationary, your purchasing power increases over time. So that's why this is a big deal. That's why it's a big deal when people like Jordan Peterson, people like Joe Rogan, people like Tucker Carlson, when they taught Tim Pool the other day, it's very, very important that those individuals that have massive followings, independent followings outside of the legacy corporate media talk about Bitcoin, because that is when the mainstream starts to start starts to ask questions. And I'm very, very glad that Jordan Peterson not only correctly identified the problem, but also said, okay, the solution is Bitcoin. Now this was a, this is a major effort by the Bitcoin community, right? There was a podcast that he did with Robert Breedlove, Gigi. I think he did one with Safedean also that all contributed to him coming to that conclusion that Bitcoin was the answer, just like how Max Kaiser went on Tucker Carlson, just how Michael Saylor went on Tucker Carlson, just how Marty Bette went on Tucker Carlson. Bitcoiners breaking out of the Bitcoin echo chamber, getting into the ears of huge, massively popular mainstream independent content creators so that they can tell their audience, guys, it's not left or right. It's not, it's not all this stuff that you guys are getting caught distracted with. The issue is the money. You fix the money, you fix the world. That's why I'm so hyped about today's episode. Anyways, I want to bring up my legendary cohost. He's getting more professional by the minute. He's wearing polos now. Are we just, are we just, are we just poloing it up bro from, from now on? Is that what we're doing? Yo, Anders was trolling me that I, that I allegedly am going to be wearing a suit in LA. I don't have a suit, so maybe I'll have to buy a suit so that I can be more professional. No, it was literally, it just got washed. It was on my computer chair and I'm like, all right, I'm wearing a polo today. It is what it is. It is what it is. But you're wearing a lot more polos as of late, bro. I have two polos and it's like I put on a button shirt and everyone's like, Oh, you're so professional. It's like, guys, I'm just not wearing a hoodie and a t -shirt, but Hey, I don't know. I will do a poll. Do people want me to wear polos anymore? I, whatever, whatever. Anyway, this is not about my fashion decisions. Okay. Um, yeah, man, Nico, crazy stuff. I can't wait to break down this whole new story today, but we'll save that for later. On that note, we do have a guest today. Shouts out to Stefan, a Bitcoiner, and we're really going to dive in on the connections between health and Bitcoin and why you guys need to get healthy out there. It's super important. Anyway, Stefan, how are you doing today? I'm great, guys. Thanks for having me on. Thanks for joining us on Simply.

A highlight from 1403: This Will Send Bitcoin to $1,000,000 - Max Keiser
"In today's show, I'll be breaking down the latest technical analysis, as well as breaking news just in. The former SEC and Federal Reserve Bank of New York, Norman Reed, announced as the new CEO of Binance US? Like, what? Serious? We'll also be discussing the latest from Max Kaiser, who recently shared, we helped boost El Salvador's bonds 90 % this year. We can help Javier Malay escape the IMF, central banking terrorist, and get Argentina's economy rocking. Hope to be landing in Buenos Aires soon. Let's go. He also says that President Bukele plus Bitcoin have reinvented the nation state. Governance is being redefined in the Bitcoin age. A true meritocracy and universal economic freedom is rising in El Salvador. Socialist ideas are on their deathbed. Can the Bukele model of Bukelenomics be exported to another country? We will go to Argentina and discuss this with Javier Malay. Can't freaking wait. Also breaking news, Mark Cuban loses $870 ,000 worth of Ethereum in his MetaMask hot wallet with a hack. Rough. Also in today's show, Gemini legal team accuses DCG, the digital currency group of gaslighting Genesis creditors. We'll also be discussing BitGo and Swan unveil plans for a Bitcoin -only trust company. That's right, the trust company will target institutional investors in the United States as asset managers line up for the Bitcoin spot ETF. Send it. We'll also be discussing Bitcoin price all -time high will precede the 2024 halving according to this latest prediction by Bitcoin. Quitting him here, no, Bitcoin is not going to top before the halving. Yes, it is going to reach a new all -time high before the halving. No, Bitcoin is not going to 160 ,000 because the magnitude of every pullback is large. This means it will peak after the halving in 2024. And yes, the target price is around $250 ,000 per Bitcoin. I'll also be sharing the latest predictions from Max Keiser with the Bitcoin price action I recently transcribed his most recent interviews. We'll also be taking a look at the overall crypto market, all this plus so much more in today's show. Yo, what's good crypto fam? This is first and foremost, a video show. So if you want the full premium experience with video, visit my YouTube channel at cryptonewsalerts .net. Again, that's cryptonewsalerts .net. Welcome everyone just joining us. This is pod episode number 1403. I'm your host JV, and it is stat stacking Saturday. So let's get it. It's September 16th. So you already know we're halfway through the September before October. So let's bring it. Let's start with our market watch. As you can see here on the screen, we're back in the green. Bitcoin up a half a percent for the day trading back above 26 ,500. We also have Ether trading above 1600. And checking out coinmarketcap .com, we're sitting just above that trillion dollar milestone with roughly 22 billion in volume in the past 24 hours. Bitcoin dominance is 48 .9%, and the Ether dominance is 18 .6%. And checking out the top 100 crypto gainers of the past 24 hours, TonCoin leading the pack up 17 .5 % trading at $2 .42, followed by ThorChain up 9 .5%, trading at $1 .91, followed by Flow up 8 .5%, trading just above 46 cents. And checking out the top 100 crypto gainers for the past week, we have a sea of green, which is a beautiful omen for the altcoin market. We have coins such as TonFlow, Rune, and Ave all pretty up between anywhere from 8 to 13%. And yeah, so there you have it. How many of you are currently bullish on the king crypto, and how many of you are anticipating a further dip? Let me know your insights. And at the end of the show, I'll be reading everyone's comments out loud as we do each and every day in the Q &A session. Now, let's dive into some technical analysis from Glassnode, one of my favorite analytics platform. The past few days have been relatively positive for the price action for the king crypto, which has been increasing since Tuesday, September 12th. At the time, Bitcoin is sitting just above 25 ,600. Now in this prediction, the co -founder of the popular crypto analytics resource, Glassnode, outlined that the US CPI jumped by 0 .6%, which led to some fluctuations of the Bitcoin price. And indeed, the core CPI, which excludes more volatile sectors such as food and energy by design, has noted a yearly increase of 4 .3%. But interestingly, the CPI itself clocked in at 3 .7%, while the estimations were for it to be 3 .6%. So initially, the news didn't really have any impact on the price, which beyond the expected initial turbulence, settled at where it was trading just before that. So here's some price predictions coming from the Glassnode co -founder. He pointed out that crypto reclaimed the support above 26 ,000 and is now eyeing a potential break beyond 27 ,000. This would help it escape a multi -week range. He went on to share, risk signals nose dive into the 60s around ,400 27 and 28 ,200. But this climb seems poised as a step before tackling the psychological barrier at $30 ,000. So there you have it. Let me know if you agree or disagree with the analysts. And are you currently more bullish or bearish on the King crypto for the short term? Please do let me know. And breaking news just came in before I went live. And I'm like, it's hard for me to even accept this, but this is what it says. Former SEC and Federal Reserve Bank of New York, Norman Reed, is announced as the new CEO of Binance US. You can't make this stuff up. Folks, what is the SEC doing? Now, Max Kaiser recently tweeted, I'm sure you know, there was a Tucker Carlson interview with the pro Bitcoin presidential candidate of Argentina, who's currently winning the polls for the presidency. And fantastic, almost 400 million views within the first day. Max went on to share, we help boost El Salvador's bonds 90 % this year. Facts. We can help Javier Malay in Argentina escape the IMF central banking terrorists and get Argentina's economy rocking. Hope to be landing in Buenos Aires soon. So the million dollar question, do you think Max Kaiser will orange pill Javier Malay? I sure hope so. He even recently tweeted here, President Bukele plus Bitcoin have reinvented the nation state. Governance is being redefined in the Bitcoin age. A true meritocracy in universal economic freedom is rising in El Salvador. Socialist ideas are on their deathbed. Can the Bukele model of Bukele -nomics be exported to another country? We will go to Argentina and discuss this with Javier Malay. And quoting El Salvador's fearless leader, Bukele, old ideas and institutions crumbled and a new generation is called on to remake the world based on the human right of financial freedom. Preach. Now, Max also shared in regards to this headline, Janet Yellen says Ukraine aid is the best boost for the global economy. Now this is hilarious and also sincere at the same time. Bitcoin monetizes war and violence by being finite and uncomfortable as this ugly, what? Illustrates money monetizes war by violence by turning humans into disposable garbage central bank Ponzi scheme. Preach Max Kaiser. Greatly appreciate all the work you're doing. You're truly doing God's work. You and Stacy's a massive shout out. Now let's discuss the latest with the hack from Mark Cuban. Now this is alarming, but at the same time, it's Meta Mass. I've been telling you guys to stay away from the Meta Mass wallet for quite some time. And also they didn't hack Bitcoin. They hacked Ethereum. I personally don't trust Ethereum or Meta Mass. So interestingly enough, so to read this story, let's break this down. Check this out. Nearly $900 ,000 worth of Ethereum was reportedly drained from one of the hot wallets belonging to investor in Dallas. Mavs owner, Mark Cuban, the man that once said Bitcoin has no intrinsic value and that bananas are more valuable. Yeah, right now, independent blockchain sleuth was the first to spot the hack September 15th at around 8 PM. So that was last night after they highlighted suspicious behavior. What one of Cuban's wallets that the 65 year old had an interacted with for roughly five months as he shared here on X LMAO did Mark Cuban's wallet just get drain wallet inactive for 160 days and all of the assets just moved. And according to the transaction history on Etherscan, several batches of assets such as USD coin, USDC tether, and Lido staked Ether were suddenly withdrawn from the wallet within a 10 minute window. Now adding complexity to the matter, another 2 million worth of USDC was also withdrawn and sent to a different wallet, leading Woz to suspect that Cuban may just be moving some assets around. However, a few hours later, Cuban confirm to DL news that he had gone on metamask for the first time in months and vaguely suggested that the hacker or hackers may have been watching and waiting for the moment to pounce. Cuban added that he had transferred any remaining assets to Coinbase custody, essentially confirming that the $2 million worth of USDC transaction was indeed him. But in terms of the hack, members of the community were quick to point out that the opposed to the hackers watching Cubans activity, he must have done something that led to the security breach. Some suggested that Cuban may have mistakenly signed a malicious transaction while others asserted his private keys were compromised given that the funds were directly transferred out of his wallets. What do you guys personally think chat? Please let me know in the comments below. This is not the first time Cuban has been taken a hit on the crypto market. Back in June of 2021, Cuban Lawson unspecified amount of capital on what he called a rug pull after the algo stable project called iron finance imploded amid a supposed bank run. So there you have it. Mark Cuban has a bad track record in crypto. Just pointing out the obvious fam, how many of you guys think that it was a legitimate hack? Let me know your thoughts or how many of you think he maybe have just moved it around and don't want to claim it. Who knows? I mean, there's infinite possibilities. No one really knows, but I'll be keeping you posted with the latest developments. We all know Mark Cuban is a multi -billionaire. So obviously a $900 ,000 loss is not going to affect him. He's not going to lose any sleep over it. But what if you were to get hacked worth of $900 ,000 of crypto? So again, red alert, be very careful with wallets such as MetaMask. Just saying. Now for the latest between the digital currency group in Gemini with the ongoing saga as it continues, lawyers representing Gemini Trust have pushed back against the plan proposed by DCG for the creditors of Genesis Global in the filing yesterday, September 15th in the US Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District in New York. New York, where you at? The legal team accused DCG of gaslighting Genesis creditors through contrived, misleading and inaccurate assertions and a recovery plan. Now the plan filed in Bankruptcy Court September 13th, three days ago, claimed unsecured creditors could have a 70 to 90 % recovery with a meaningful portion of the recovery in digital currencies, while Gemini earned users would expect an approximately 95 to 110 % recovery for their claims. This seemed like a red flag when I initially read the story. I'm like, how are they going to get back 110 %? Does that make any sense? So now I'm starting to understand maybe they were gaslighting. What are your thoughts, chat? According to the legal team, DCG was attempting to bait the Gemini lenders into accepting the deal that would allow the company to pay less than it allegedly owed. Lawyers called on the firm to significantly improve the terms of the loans provided to Genesis and not use Genesis' bankruptcy proceedings to cover for justifications of the recovery plan, quoting them here, to distract the Genesis creditors from the inconvenient facts of its facially inadequate and inequitable proposal, DCG touts proposed recovery rates that are total mirage, misleading at best and deceptive at worst, said the filing yesterday, September 15th. Make no mistake, Gemini lenders will not actually receive anything close to the real value in terms of proposed recovery rates under the current agreement. In principle, so a bunch of more shenanigans, to say the least. The legal battle involved entanglements with crypto exchange Gemini and DCG over the Gemini Earn program. How many of you have lost crypto from Gemini Earn? I'm curious. Please let me know in the chat, fam. Financed in part by Genesis, Genesis halted withdrawals as we know November of 2022 in the wake of the FTX collapse, citing unprecedented market turmoil at the time and filed for bankruptcy later on in January of this year. According to the court filings by Gemini, Genesis owed more than $3 .5 billion to its top 50 creditors at the time of their Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing. The crypto exchange filed the claim in May, aimed at recovering more than $1 .1 billion worth of assets for roughly $232 ,000 Earn users and filed a lawsuit against DCG and their CEO, Barry Silber, in June alleging fraud. Barry was not the only architect and mastermind of the DCG and Genesis fraud against the creditors. He was directly and personally involved in perpetuating it, said Gemini co -founders Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss back in June. The US SEC filed a civil suit against Gemini and Genesis in January for allegedly selling unregistered securities through the Earn program. The two firms filed a motion to dismiss the case in May, but it is still ongoing at this current time. How do you think this is likely to play out? I just hope that the investors get their money back as they deserve because we all know with lawsuits, the biggest losers are always the investors. The biggest winners are the lawyers and the courts. That's just facts. So we'll see how this plays out as well. And again, they're attacking and going after all of the yield programs for crypto with Gemini Earn being a pretty large one. Why? It undermines the banks, right? If you can earn a five or 10 % yield putting your cryptocurrency on their platform, it basically tells you that why would you even waste your time with fiat currency in your bank when you're losing more than the actual appreciation of interest because the interest is virtually nothing while you're losing 20 % in inflation on an annual basis. It just makes no sense. So it seems if I had to guess, that's why they're attacking all of these yield programs. But what are your thoughts, chat? Please do let me know. I'm going to read those comments out in a little bit. Now let's discuss the latest with Bitcoin Trust. That's right, BitGo and Swan unveiled plans for their Bitcoin -only trust company. This is breaking news as well. The US may soon have a Bitcoin -only trust company according to plans disclosed by BitGo and Swan yesterday, September 15th. The joint venture is pending regulatory approval, the company said in the statement. Now I love the word joint venture because hey, JV, just saying. The forthcoming entity will handle similar activities of a trust company, including Bitcoin custody, administration and management on behalf of its beneficiaries. And according to Corey Clipston, CEO of Swan, the solutions intends to offer Bitcoin custody without the risk of having other altcoins under the same roof. As you know, Swan is Bitcoin -only and they're pretty much anti everything, not Bitcoin. Quoting him here, for years, we have heard from major clients, partners and other Bitcoin companies that they would prefer a Bitcoin -only software and services stack that is focused strictly on the best custody and leverages of Bitcoin's unique features. The companies are in contact with state regulators about the plans, but have yet to file regulatory approval. Clipston told Cointelegraph we're evaluating acquisition options first, he disclosed as he announced here through the Swan Bitcoin team on X. As part of our long -term vision to advance Bitcoin adoption, we're announcing a major step forward for Swan and the entire Bitcoin ecosystem. BitGo and Swan announced plans for USA's first Bitcoin -only trust company. Let's go USA. BitGo offers digital asset security and custody, supporting over 700 cryptos as per its website. And in contrast, Swan's business is fully dedicated to the king crypto, allowing users to only invest in Bitcoin via a one -time and reoccurring purchases, with custody of records held at Fortress Bank and Bakkt, while BitGo acts as a cold storage for Custodian. Now, didn't Fortress Trust just go bankrupt or get acquired by another company? Was it Ripple? You guys let me know in the chat. I know there was something major with Fortress Trust. Now, the new venture will target institutional investors such as asset managers, pension plans, and family offices, along with governments and company treasuries. It will offer cold storage, fraud prevention, anti -money laundering, and know -your -customer protocols, amongst other Bitcoin -related services. Institutional investors in the crypto space are at a fast -growing market in the US, especially as the world's largest asset managers seek regulatory approval, which includes BlackRock, the largest. For a spot Bitcoin ETF, we also have several large Wall Street players offering crypto custody solutions to institutional investors, which include the Bank of New York, Mellon, as well as Deutsche Bank, quoting them here. We believe there is a high likelihood that several ETFs are approved in 2024, and thus a new round of entrants to the Bitcoin market seeking mature, reputable, technology -proficient partners for a range of needs, explained the Swan CEO. The SEC delayed decisions on the spot Bitcoin ETF product. Analysts predict the regulatory regulator may postpone a decision until early 2024 as the deadline fast approaches, quoting them again. Our teams have worked closely together for nearly a year on stronger, qualified custody models. Early in 2023, we recognized the opportunity to establish a Bitcoin -only custodian, combining the unique capabilities of each company and supporting the innovators that will be at the forefront of pushing Bitcoin adoption, noted the CEO of BitGo. So there you have it. I am curious, by a show of hands chat, how many of you have purchased or acquired Bitcoin using Swan Bitcoin, and how many of you are familiar or ever used BitGo? Let me know in the chat. Now let's break down our next breaking story of the day, and that's the Bitcoin halving, which should be on everybody's mind, because it's only six months out, estimated to take place sometime in April of 2024. Now guess what? What if we hit a new all -time high pre -halving, because that's what this prediction suggests. Let's break this baby down, shall we? Bitcoin has a $250 ,000 target for after its next block subsidy halving, but a new all -time high will come sooner. Let me know if you guys agree. That is the latest Bitcoin prediction from BitQuant, the popular social media commentator who sees a rosy future for Bitcoin. In his latest post on X on September 15th, synonymous central banker and Bitcoiner revealed a pre -halving target of 69 ,000. That's what makes this individual interesting. He is a central banker and a Bitcoiner. I didn't even know that was a possible combination, fam, just saying, but he wrote, no, Bitcoin is not going to the top before the halving. Yes, it is going to reach a new all -time high before the halving. Now Bitcoin has just over six months before the halving, the event that cuts the miner rewards, as we know, per block by 50 % every four years. Analysts argue that the resulting emission restrictions have a cathartic impact on the Bitcoin price performance, acting as something of a springboard in advance of Bitcoin seeing new all -time highs. But for BitQuant, the analysts, that alone is not bullish enough. Not only will Bitcoin beat its current record set in 2021, which we all know the current all -time high is 69 ,000, before next April, it'll go on to hit $250 ,000 per Bitcoin after the next halving cycle begins. That's what he says here. No, Bitcoin is not going to 160 ,000 because the magnitude of every pullback is large. This means it will peak after the halving in 2024, and yes, the target price is around 250 ,000, which is outlined right here in the chart. Let me know if you agree or disagree with this crypto analyst, BitQuant. Now, market participants are highly divided when it comes to how the Bitcoin price action will play out into the halving and beyond. Some agree that the higher levels are possible by April, but plenty of conservative voices obviously remain, especially bears, right? Last month, Bitcoin investor and author Jesse Myers dispelled any idea that Bitcoin will be trading at six figures between now and then, and in a subsequent interview, meanwhile, Philby Philby, the co -founder of Trading Suite, decent trader, gave a pre -halving Bitcoin price ceiling of 46 ,000, quoting him here, assuming no Black Swan event, around 35 ,000 by the end of the year, and possibly as high as 46 ,000, sometime pre -halving in quarter one of 2024. So there, you freaking have it. And as he shares here, I'm going to read you his particular post on X coming from Bitcoin. Again, this is the central banker slash Bitcoiner. He says, no, Bitcoin is not going to the top before the halving. Yes, it is going to reach a new all -time high before the halving. No, Bitcoin is not going to 160 ,000 because the magnitude of every pullback is large. This means it will peak after the halving in 2024. And yes, the target price is around $250 ,000 per coin. So there you have it, fam. Again, let me know if you agree or disagree with the analysts and where do you feel the Bitcoin halving, which is around the corner, is likely to take us. As you know, the two most bullish catalysts in the market, Bitcoin halving as well as spot Bitcoin ETF. I hope they both get approved and take place. We already know for certain the halving will take place, but there's a 95 % chance of the spot ETF approval in the United States, according to top ETF analyst, Eric Balchunes of Bloomberg. Now for the moment you have all been waiting for, the latest from Max Kaiser. I recently transcribed, actually today, his most recent interview in Bitcoin price predictions, very powerful words to share. So let's break this down. So first and foremost, he says, the world is a very different place and everyone will say nobody saw it coming, but it is clearly been brewing now for many years. And it's like every single day you can just see the catastrophe inching toward the abyss. You know, it's we're at the zero line preach. He also says it is a global fiat money game and you see different countries where fiat money regimes are collapsing in real time, right? Facts. Argentina, you know, the countries like this or like Lebanon recently had a complete collapse or a central bank collapse. That's right. And inflation is definitely an indication that your fiat money regime is in dire straits and inflation is breaking out in a big way. It is not going to return to where it was before this latest inflation break inflation and the collapse of fiat money is here. Now people are feeling it right now. And the quality of life all over the world is being impacted by it and it's being impacted in the United States. You know, people can't buy a home. People can't afford food. The economy is starting to ramp back up again. So it's playing out right now. And there is nothing that can be done to stop this inflation because the economy is completely out of control. So even the interest on the debt in the United States is now over one trillion dollars. So I think it is the biggest line item on the budget, bigger than the military. What we were told for decades was, oh, you know, it's trickle down economics or what you have, what not. I mean, and he goes on to share with Bitcoin. It's kind of the end of price discovery because everything will be priced in Bitcoin preach. eventually Everything goes to zero against Bitcoin. And so for someone like myself, who has been following this for 40 years, finance markets, technology, Bitcoin is the holy grail. It is the end all. I would say my compatriot in all of this is the one and only Michael Saylor. When you hear Michael Saylor talk, he talks about the aesthetics of Bitcoin, the beauty of Bitcoin. And he speaks about it in a way that I think carries the torch from the Max and Stacey from 2011. He started buying it, I guess, when it was 10 or 12000 a coin or so in 2020 era. So we were from 2011 to 2020. I think he's kind of carried the torch from 2020 in a lot of ways and introduced Bitcoin to massive pools of capital. I am surprised that more companies haven't followed his lead, giving up the break in inflation we have had exactly as Michael Saylor predicted, the melting ice cube, as he called it at that time, is exactly what happened. Well, I guess we can say now we're in a new era where BlackRock and those other major institutions are now looking at Bitcoin. So his work on the institutional level, I guess, is now bearing fruit. Three years later, I see in the Middle East, they are starting to recognize Bitcoin. So that's a huge pool of capital. I think all of that oil money will find its way into Bitcoin and be a huge catalyst for the prices. It is a natural way for the oil industry to diversify their portfolio because Bitcoin is essentially energy and the energy eventually gets priced in Bitcoin. And there is a marriage between these two in a big way. So I think that's kind of the answer. I have always been fascinated by price discovery in markets and the architecture of how markets work under the hood. And Bitcoin is such a pristine, perfect money. And I think it is something that humans have been searching for since forever. And now we're seeing it change society on a really fundamental level with the introduction of Bitcoin. And a lot of people are freaking out because of it, because it destroys the status quo. And a lot of people who have been waiting for it to come along have had the faith that humanity can be saved. They see Bitcoin in those terms. So you have this split going on, which is very exciting. So it just continues on and on. And you cannot, how could you not be interested in it? I think the people who were into it earlier and just walked away just never got it from the beginning. Once it's characterized as an asset class, we have nothing to do except position ourselves in this asset class. Either we are going to be a small position or a big position, but we cannot ignore it. We cannot not have a position. Now check this out. So even 1 % of that multi -hundred trillion dollar funds available moves the needle on Bitcoin and it moves it up considerably. He's referencing the 700 trillion dollar plus total addressable market. And he continues, so if we get into the 5 to 10 % range, then you start to really see it raise ahead to the seven figure type predictions that people have been making, including myself, because Bitcoin is an asset class preach. And on the flip side, we have what we saw in the gold market, which is the ability to control the price discovery and manipulate the prices. It's real through the derivatives markets. So the price of gold has been lagging inflation for 20 years because the governments around the world don't like gold making their fiat money look bad. That's right. So they make it easy for the huge funds to manipulate the price of gold and to scalp it, to continuously skim profits off of gold, which is what they do almost every single day. You can watch it and see it. That's pretty clear. And they are very good at keeping the price of gold and silver down. There's something like for every ounce of silver, there's probably 50 ounces worth of derivatives floating in various exchanges around world that are used to keep the price of silver down because governments don't want gold to race ahead and draw capital out of their fiat money scam into gold. He's preaching. Now with Bitcoin, we have the ability to pull our private keys, which is not really available with gold. Technically people can take delivery of gold on these exchanges, but there has never been an organized attempt to do so. We tried to do it a few years ago with crash JP Morgan, buy gold and silver because after the 2008 financial crisis, when JP Morgan ended up buying Bear Stearns effectively for nothing, they inherited this huge multimillion short silver position that Bear Stearns was managing at the behest of presumably the government. The government likes to stay involved. And so I did some calculations and it became clear that if this short position was not covered, the price of silver could go to 60 to $70 an ounce, and it would bankrupt JP Morgan Chase. Take that Jamie Dimon. So we started this crash JP Morgan buy silver campaign, and we got the price of silver from $15 up to $50. So we got it up to $50 level. And then the Fed of course came in, they changed the laws overnight to make it possible for these banks to have and carry a much greater short position and silver. So they printed up a lot of paper, silver derivatives, and they stopped the run on their bank. And the price of silver went back down to $15 or so. So we've seen that it is possible to force capitulation in that silver market. But at the end of the day, because the ability to pull private keys is not like it is Bitcoin, I don't think it'll ever succeed. Whereas with Bitcoin, you can pull your private keys. Now, I mean, he is speaking facts right here. Warren Buffett and his own words has said, derivatives are financial weapons of mass destruction. The central bankers are using it to manipulate the markets. That's what they're doing with silver. That's what they're doing with gold and precious metals. And Max makes a great point. They don't want the gold and silver prices to rise up. It undermines the US dollar. They're trying to keep a strong dollar, right? So that's why gold has been pretty stable at like $2 ,000 and unable to really climb much above it. I think it's been pretty stagnant virtually for the past decade. So with the dollar inflating from them continuing to print trillions of dollars, the fact that gold isn't just continuously going up, it proves that the market is manipulated. You also got to consider as well, there is no scarce asset like Bitcoin. Bitcoin has a finite limited supply of 21 million coins. Yeah, gold may be rare or scarce, but they dump a new supply every year into the market. They can control it. They could invest more into discovering more gold. As Jack Mallers pointed out, Elon could maybe discover more gold on Mars. Who knows? Bitcoin, you can't say the same thing. Bitcoin is perfect money. It's incorruptible. It's unconfiscatable and the list goes on and on. So if you had the choice to put your wealth somewhere, what asset class would you choose to put it in? Let me know, fam.

Higher Education Fuels Blind Trust in Authority
"Are losing faith in the value of higher education. Isn't it interesting? This is a logical choice, whatever side you're on. The more you have attended university, in other words, gone even on to graduate school, the more likely you are to trust authority. I had an hour interview yesterday on the show, the third hour. What is that terrific man's name from Chile? Axel Kaiser. Axel, that's his first name? He is a serious thinker, a relatively young man, early 40s. We were talking about the acceptance of authority in the West. When I bounced off this man, my theory, Germany is always wrong. Not every German. He, who was half German, half Chilean, said absolutely that's correct. The collective fools with many, many individual, intelligent people. He believes that the genesis of the love of authority is in great measure owing to Germany in the 19th century, which I have often said. For example, U .S. universities were not issuing PhDs almost ever, so people went to Germany to study, and there they picked up the idea of collectivism and the love of authority. The United States was founded by people who don't trust authority except divine authority. They trusted no human authority because they knew that humans are so profoundly flawed.
A highlight from GARY GENSLER CALLS ALL CRYPTO SECURITIES AHEAD OF CONGRESS HEARING & SEC RIPPLE XRP APPEAL
"Welcome back to the Thinking Crypto podcast, your home for cryptocurrency news and interviews. If you are new here, please hit that subscribe button as well as the thumbs up button and leave a comment below. If you're listening on a podcast platform such as Spotify, Apple or Google, please leave a five star rating and review. It supports the podcast and it doesn't cost you anything. Well, folks, I want to start with news around scumbag regulator Gary Gensler. Tomorrow, SEC Chair Gary Gensler will be testifying before the U .S. Senate Banking Committee. And there will be two hearings this month that he's going to be appearing at. And tomorrow is the first. At the end of the month, he'll be testifying before the House Financial Services Committee. I think that's the one that's going to have the most fireworks the last time. It certainly did. Gary got a lot of grilling from Patrick McHenry and a whole bunch of other folks. So I can't wait for that one. So we'll see if he gets any pushback tomorrow. But ahead of his testimony tomorrow, he released a letter. And of course, he's reiterating the same old bullshit about how all crypto tokens are securities. And here's one of his quotes. Given this industry's wide ranging noncompliance with the securities laws, it's not surprising that we've seen many problems in these markets. Now here's what Taylor Barr of the Digital Chamber of Commerce had to say regarding those statements from Gary. Without clear rules of the road and notable regulatory gaps, it's not noncompliance. It's navigating uncharted waters. Yeah, I think we've seen this time and time again. Gary continues these false narratives. We know the market does not have clarity. We're seeing the judges and the courts. The judges are also like, what is the SEC calling a security? You can't even say which ones are security and which ones are not right. They're just the SEC is just throwing anything at the wall right now. And Gary continues lying. This is why we have to keep fighting folks. And we have to tweet. We have to use social media to our advantage. We have to make content. We have to contact our representatives. Now, Mike Selig, who is a crypto and a fin regulation lawyer at Wilkie Farr. He tweeted out some items regarding Gensler's letter. Chair Gensler says the vast majority of crypto tokens meet the investment contract tests. Now, former chair Clayton said every ICO is I've seen is a security. This is similar rhetoric, but different meaning. Unlike Clayton, Gensler says tokens themselves are securities. Judge Torres disagreed. So we know the Ripple ruling was certainly important for case law, highlighting Gary's lies and his false narratives. And even goes back to the Howie case where I've interviewed Hester Peirce, SEC commissioner, where she said she's trying to tell the folks there not to focus on the asset, but rather how it's packaged. So in the case of Howie, it wasn't the oranges, right? It wasn't the trees and the orange groves and all of that. It was rather his investment scheme, because if it was the fruit and the trees, that means every orange tree today is a security. All the oranges in the supermarket and that you have at your house is a security, which is nonsense, obviously, right? Because these tokens, folks, they exist on decentralized blockchains and they are distributed globally. They're outside the United States as well. Right. And you can't get the same rights as stocks. If you hold a token, you don't have voting rights in the sense of having equity and shares of the company and things like that. So it's not a security, but rather how it's packaged. That's the key. That's the differentiator. But Gary Gensler continues his lies. So we got to fight. Let's see how this hearing goes tomorrow. And if he gets pushed any type of pushback, I'm hearing a lot of Democrats and as well as Republicans, of course, are not happy with Gary with how he's doing things with the crypto market. Obviously, him taking a big loss with Grayscale and Ripple is significant. And I hope Coinbase mops the floor with this clown Gensler. And then I hope he gets he gets forced to resign. Now, the SEC is, of course, trying to file an appeal with the Ripple ruling. And here, attorney Frederick Foley shared some thoughts about that. He said, XRP community, SEC made decent arguments and Ripple countered them. Well, certifying the appeal is a discretionary standard. Judge Torres can do whatever she wants if she determines the three statutory conditions are met and there is enough wiggle room for her to certify, he says. But as I predicted earlier, I still say the likely outcome is she does not certified mainly because of the prejudice to the humans involved. Brad Garlinghouse and Chris Larson, without the claims against them, I would have to say 100 percent chance she certifies. Lastly, this case has a political element. So if that is a factor for Judge Torres, I don't think it is, but it's not without reason to think the opposite. She can avoid that issue by certifying and putting the onus on the second circuit as the court can simply deny the request. So we'll see. I don't think the SEC has any chance here. You know, once again, they can go ahead and file the appeal. Nothing wrong with that. But will they actually get it through and get something done? I don't think so. I think Gary Gensler has lost the narrative. Optics look very bad for him. And I can't wait to see what the ruling will be with the Coinbase situation. And I think another loss will be really bad for Gary Gensler. Now, a quick word from our sponsor, and that is Uphold, which makes crypto investing easy. I've been using Uphold since 2018, so I can certainly vouch for this platform. They have 10 plus million users, 250 plus crypto currencies, and they're available in 150 countries. You can also trade precious metals and equities on this platform, as well as 37 national currencies. You can swap between different currencies with precious metals and crypto currencies. It's pretty unique. So if you'd like to learn more about Uphold, please visit the link in the description. All right, folks. Now, with Ripple acquiring Fortress, which is the custodian, and this was a big move by Ripple, of course. Well, some details are coming out that Swan Bitcoin's custodian was Fortress and that Fortress was hacked, apparently. And some customer funds were lost and Ripple in their acquisition had to step in to cover the customer losses. This is wild. Now, you may say, who cares? Well, Swan Bitcoin is run by a bunch of Bitcoin maxis. Max Kaiser supports it. The other guy, Corey, I forgot his last name, but these guys are toxic. I mean, they're going around calling everything a shitcoin. They're attacking other coins. They're always, you know, just doing nonsense. It's like their M .O., right? That's the persona they've taken over. But a lot of people recognize it. They're just just toxic, man. Just disgusting people. And lo and behold, the irony, folks, that Ripple came and bailed them out. Right. And apparently this was confirmed because Mike Belshi, who was who is the CEO of BitGo, who I've had on the podcast many times, he confirmed some of this and that the folks at Fortress Trust have not been clear about the lost funds and things that have been happening. And it's spilling over to BitGo because BitGo's clients are calling and saying, hey, what's going on here? Right. What's with the breach and all that jazz? So it's a mess right now. So it's pretty incredible that these Bitcoin maxis got bailed out by Ripple.

So if you want the full premium experience with video, visit my YouTube channel at CryptoNewsAlerts .net. Again, that's Crypto News Alerts dot net. Welcome, everyone tuning in. This is podcast episode number thirteen hundred and ninety four. I'm your host, JV. And today is September 6, 2023. We do have a lot to cover. Let's start with our market watch. As you can see here in your screen, we got Bitcoin in the red, barely holding on to twenty five thousand six hundred. We also have ether in the red along with XRP, Cardano, Polkadot and Solana. And checking out CoinMarketCap .com, we're barely sitting above that trillion dollar milestone, with about twenty seven billion in volume in the past 24 hours, with Bitcoin dominance at forty eight point two percent, with the ether dominance just shy of 19 percent. And checking out the top 100 crypto gainers of the past 24 hours, Thor chain lead in the pack up almost four percent, trading at a dollar fifty five, followed by Iota up three percent, trading above seventeen point two cents, followed by GMX up three percent, trading at thirty three dollars and thirty seven cents. And checking out the top 100 crypto gainers for the past week, cause lead in the pack up fourteen percent. And checking out the crypto greed and fear index, we're currently rated forty two in fear. Yesterday was a forty last week, a forty nine and last month, a forty nine, which is a neutral. So there you have it. How many of you have been taking advantage of this recent dip? Please do let me know in the comments chat. I greatly appreciate that. And now let's dive into today's Bitcoin technical analysis. Check out the charts and what's popping with the king crypto. As you can see here, Bitcoin's bullish momentum is fading as liquidity shifts preempt a volatile move. According to the latest analysis in a new post by crypto analyst Keith Allen, a monitoring resource flagged fresh shifts on the Binance order book. That's right. The Bitcoin price has stayed tidy range bound since the weekend. But exchange data suggests that the status quo may be about to change. What are your thoughts? Bid support moved down to concentrate around twenty four thousand six hundred on the day, with the price level not seen on the spot markets since March. Quitting the analysts here, what is most concerning here is that the largest concentrations of Bitcoin bid liquidity have now moved below the previously established lower low. At the bottom of the range, Bitcoin put in the lowest post March dip in mid -June, reaching twenty four thousand seven fifty before reversing higher as data outlines alongside this chart, which shows you the Bitcoin one week candle chart. Now continuing, Allen shared the following from a macro perspective. I do expect to see a price breakdown eventually. So the thought of printing a new lower low isn't surprising. But I did expect to see stronger short term rally from this range before that happens. But with that said, the bears are yet to gain the upper hand entirely.

A highlight from How Bitcoin is Quietly Taking Over the World | EP 814
"Yo, welcome to another episode of simply Bitcoin live or number one source for the peaceful Bitcoin revolution. We cover breaking news culture, medical warfare. We will be your guide through the separation of money and state shout out to my legendary cohost and brother for holding it down these last couple of days, uh, go, it was going through, uh, some, some personal stuff. Um, and what I got to say about that is cherish the ones you love. Um, you know, you're, sometimes you're not going to spend, uh, that's what I got to say. Cherish the ones you love, appreciate them while they're still around. And, uh, and yeah. Um, but anyways, today's going to be a great show. Uh, we're going to cover the topic. Bitcoin is taking over the world. It really, really is. Um, it was just announced it actually, we covered this initially, uh, when it was dropped on Forbes, the article is Oman's bold Bitcoin play $1 .1 billion investment on Bitcoin mining infrastructure. We covered this during the bit block boom episode. That episode was a little, a little interesting because we were backstage and we had to talk in like golf voices and stuff. But the reason that this is so big, and we're going to dive into the details of this, the significance of this, because it is very, very significant. Is that gonna make the minute? I'm going to make the case for you guys that Bitcoin's incentives stay winning. Bitcoin's incentives are quietly taking over the world. Uh, this isn't, this isn't just had, this didn't just happen in Oman. It was a couple of months ago where we were, we covered it for you guys. Also an article from Forbes. The headline is the kingdom of Bhutan has been quietly mining Bitcoin for years, right? So you have, and this is the case that we were making. We made this when this initial news came out of Bhutan, we were trying to tell you guys like, look, this will most likely happen in other countries. Boom. It just happened in another country. And why is that? Why Bitcoin, right? Well, because Bitcoin monetizes, it gives stranded energy value, right? Nothing in the world does that. Bitcoin does that. So countries that perhaps they didn't care about Bitcoin, uh, in Oman, it's just a, it's a heavily Muslim country. You can even say it wasn't, uh, it wasn't appropriate for them to use a currency like Bitcoin. Well, they changed their minds on that, right? And this is a testament to show Bitcoin's incentives and how you can't resist them. Um, and also there's this post by Jimmy Song. I'm going to see if I could pull it up, but he was basically covering the news, uh, coming out of, of black rock. And a lot of people were, were a little bit worried that black rock was going to kind of infect Bitcoin and all that. And I never forget this quote from Max Kaiser and the quote was basically like, you don't change Bitcoin, Bitcoin changes you. And, and, and I really think that's true. Right. Um, and I think it, you know, it was originally sourced in the Satoshi white paper, um, or maybe it was a Satoshi white paper, but it went something like this, right? You're more incentivized to play by Bitcoin's rules than you are to try to cheat it. Right. So when you see these countries getting excited, when you see these countries wanting to partake, wanting to benefit from, you know, number go up technology and these crazy incentives, um, you know, the question that I have, the, the, the, the statement that I have for you guys, you know, it's not governments, uh, it's not governments that are going to try to fix Bitcoin or try to co -opt Bitcoin. It's Bitcoin that is going to co -opt governments. And that is because it is a system of aligned incentives and it is a system that rewards you more by playing by the rules than by trying to cheat the system. Um, and I think that this is a phenomenon that's going to be very strange to people because you're used to a lot of these, you know, huge container institutions or these huge countries that have these massive, uh, governments, these massive bureaucracies doing bad by their people. But I wouldn't say that it's necessarily because these are evil people and they're twirling their mustaches and they're scheming and they're saying like, ha ha ha. Uh, like, you know, like we're gonna, we're gonna do it, we're gonna do like these bad things and you know, we're gonna screw these people. We're gonna enslave people. What I think you're seeing is the result of a broken architecture of, of the broken architecture that is Fiat, the misalignment of incentives that is Fiat. Uh, so when we say fix the money, fix the world, I do not think that's a, that's a, that's an overstatement. I really believe that because I think that if you fix the base layer, if you fix the incentive structure of the world where everyone can win, um, you start incentivizing good behavior. And I think you've seen this in El Salvador. I do not think it's a coincidence. I'm sticking by my word and I know I got a lot of flack on this, but I've talked to Jimmy song about this. I talked to Max Kaiser about this when we were at bit block boom and I'm sticking by it. I do not think it's a coincidence that in the first country that made Bitcoin legal tender, the elected official is actually doing the job of which he was elected to do. And my case, my theory for that is because you have a society where the incentives are now aligned. You have a society where the base layer is now based on truth. It's not based on lies like it is in Fiat. And I think that all the evils that a lot of people will interpret it as evil that you're seeing out of the world economic forum are like, I like to call it the container conference or, you know, a lot of these, uh, these, uh, people call it the deep state. I call it the administrative state because it's right up in your grill these days. Uh, these actions that are, they seem counterintuitive like, and we're going to play you a video of, of Mitch McConnell in a second during the number segment where, you know, they're sending billions of dollars to fund wars, but then there's homeless people on the streets in their countries. I don't think that's because these people are inherently evil. They're just incentivized to do that. Why? Because of Fiat and like, think about it. If you're a politician, you get elected, what are you incentivized to do? Are you incentivized to do good by your constituents? No, you're incentivized to get as close as humanly possible to the money spigot. If you fix the money, right? If you, if you have a sound money society and politicians don't have this elite privilege of being able to create money for free that everyone else has to work for, what is their only other mechanism of raising money or staying employed? They have to go directly to their constituents and say, listen, I have an idea. I'm going to raise taxes in order to pay for this.

And checking out the top 100 crypto gainers in the past 24 hours, we have Bone leading the pack, no pun intended, up 12 and a half percent trading at $1 .43, followed by Render up two and a half percent trading at $1 .46, followed by Immutable up just 1 % trading at 58 cents as virtually all the major alts are currently correcting and in the red as we can see here on Crypto Bubbles. And checking out the Crypto Greed in Fear Index, one of my favorite indicators, shows we're currently rated a 41 in fear. Yesterday was a 37, last week a 50 and last month a 50 in neutral. So there you have it. Welcome to everyone just joining us for our live stream today. I appreciate all the live support as we receive here each and every day. Without further ado, let's now break down our Bitcoin technical analysis and check out the charts and what's popping with the King Crypto in the markets after last week's massacre that brought Bitcoin from about that $29 ,000 level to $25 ,300, which is a new two month low within a single day. The asset started to show enhanced signs of stagnation. Now the next several days, including the typically less volatile weekend, were quite boring with the Bitcoin price standing at around $26 ,000, which is precisely where we're at at the time of this recording. Now the only more notable move came yesterday when Bitcoin fell by over $500 ,000, but recovered those losses almost immediately. And as such, it had calmed at around $26 ,000 before the bulls stepped in on the gas pedal and pushed it north $800, which resulted in a six day high, which sits at $26 ,800. So as of right now, Bitcoin has lost some steam, but it's still practically broke even for the day. We're down 2 .5 % at this time. And also we can see the altcoins obviously getting wrecked as well. So the altcoins suffered just as badly and even worse than Bitcoin plummeting last week, and they failed to produce any substantial gains for the following days. And I'm actually curious, which altcoins are you currently bullish on, if any? Let me know your honest thoughts in the comments right down below. And now let's actually check out this tweet from Watcher Guru, who points out just then the BRICS to officially abandon the US dollar for trade settlements. And Max Keiser wrote, this is what happens. The BRICS following up on Russia's big win in the Ukraine will launch a goldback currency. The reaction from NATO countries will be fatally panic print fiat money as that money printer continue to go. He also said that this is announcement number one, abandon the US dollar. Next they'll announce a common gold backed currency. And he quoting himself here from Najee Bokele, Nax is always right. So preach and shout out to Max Keiser and Stacey Herbert of the Kaiser report. Now how many of you have been following BRICS? We have been covering this story here on the show. Now, many nations all united together for the de -dollarization of the US dollar and introducing a new currency, which is allegedly going to be gold back. So it'll be interesting to see how all this plays out. All I know is this only keep in fiat what you're willing to lose. Take that to the bank, pun intended. Now let's break down our next story of the day and discuss new lows, which could be incoming as per crypto analysts. I'm going to be sharing some of these targets and then we'll get into some of our bullish price predictions. So I like to cover the lows as well as the highs. Here we go. Bennett tells his 111 ,000 followers on X that Bitcoin can plunge by nearly 50 % from the current price. Holy moly. Wouldn't that take us like, what, south of 13 ,000? Using a chart showing Bitcoin had fallen out of the ascending channel that it has been stuck in for about a decade, Bennett says Bitcoin could plunge to slightly below that support level of $14 ,000, acting as a strong resistance zone between 2018 and 2020. Now, I'd like to point out, as you all should know, the current low for this cycle is 15 ,700 we hit in the fourth quarter of last year. So this analyst is ultimately saying we could potentially expect a new low of $14 ,000. Let me know if you agree or disagree with the analyst, quoting him here. I posted this Bitcoin chart showing macro resistance at 29 ,000 to 33 ,000 back in March. 31 ,800 was the recent swing high. That's right. It's the annual high for this year's 31 ,800. And he goes on to share, guess what comes next? Well, according to Bennett, a Bitcoin plunge could be set off by the S &P 500 falling by double digit figures, quoting him here. What could trigger it? The SPX doing this, correcting by over a quarter of its value. It'll be interesting to see if August finishes as a bearish engulfing month. Now earlier in the month, it's also worth noting, Bennett predicted that the S &P 500 stock index would plummet if it failed to go above 4610 points reached in July. Now the 4610 level is SPX lowest relative high to the 4820 points recorded back in January of last year. Quoting the analyst again, a 27 % dump from the SPX is more than possible if this confirms as a lower high. We have already seen significant breakdowns from other indices and big names like Apple. So don't rule it out. Imagine the carnage in the crypto market if this materializes. So there you have it. Let me know if you agree or disagree with the analyst. I like to keep all scenarios open for a possibility or probability. I think it is less probable to happen than to happen. But even if there is a 10 or 15 or 20 % chance of that playing out, you should be prepared. Now with Bitcoin, it's great because when the market drops, you seize the moment. Keep stacking them stats, BTFD, DCA, dollar cost average. And when the price goes up, you just count your blessings and you're grateful that you were stacking stats during the bear market. So either way, whatever comes ahead, we're going to capitalize and continue winning because that's what we do here on Crypto News Alerts. Now let's discuss this $144 ,000 price prediction by Glassnode founder in 2024, which is right around the corner. We also have the Bitcoin halving right around the corner. So let's break this down, shall we? The co -founders of the crypto analytics firm Glassnode think Bitcoin can soar towards a new all -time high faster than many analysts and traders expect full send it. Let's go. Glassnode co -founders who share the Nijentropic Trop, whatever you pronounce that word, handle on X, predict that the US dollar index will peak at 106. The US dollar index is a measure of the value of the US dollar against a basket of six major currencies valued at 103 at this time, according to MarketWatch. Now the founders of Glassnode predict that the US dollar index hitting its peak will set the stage for the prime Bitcoin environment. Send it. A peaking US dollar index suggests that investors are starting to make their capital work and risk assets such as cryptocurrency, quoting them here. Up next, Bitcoin aiming for $37 ,000 before soaring higher in the autumn as outlined right here in this chart. I sure do hope they're right. Now the Glassnode co -founders also share a chart that projects Bitcoin will surge more than $144 ,000 per coin by early 2024. As outlined right here in this chart, you can see that top peak is hitting $144 ,000. Wouldn't you love to see that? They also go on to share that oversold indicators hint at potential short -term gains. However, keep an eye out for the risk signal plateauing at 100, suggesting a consolidation phase until the demand dynamic shift, which is outlined again here in this chart. Now with Bitcoin currently trading at 26 thou, the top ranked crypto asset is roughly 62 % down from its all -time high of more than 69 ,000, which it achieved back in November of 2021. That's right. So great time to be stacking stats at a 60 % discount, I'd say. Wouldn't you agree? Let me know. And how many of you have been doing just that and buying the dips? Holla at your boy in the live chat. Like I said, at the end of the show, we'll be reading everyone's comments out loud. Now let's talk about the latest from the ex Goldman Sachs executive, the one and only Raoul Pal. He's predicting a $10 trillion market cap. As you know, the current crypto market cap sits just above $1 trillion. So he's ultimately saying the entire crypto market is to 10x. Then we'll break down Pantera Capital's latest $148 ,000 price prediction and followed by Fidelity, one of the largest asset managers in the world, predicting the Bitcoin price to hit $100 million per coin. Then we'll dive into our live Q &A. Former Goldman Sachs exec Raoul Pal predicts that the total market cap for cryptos will soon soar to $10 trillion as institutions pour into the digital asset space. In a new interview with Binance's sales manager, the macro expert says financial institutions are likely to follow family offices, which typically take on higher than average risks into crypto investing. Quitting the analysts here, I think in this next phase, the next bull market or the next business cycle, we'll see a mass onboarding of institutions. I have seen this space before. Usually it's the family offices that are first to take the risk. And we have all seen that in this space. Many family offices were the first to invest because they are freer to do what they wanted with their own capital. As I have said, most of the institutions have done work, including the investment banks. And so now they just need price confirmation and then they'll be in. So I think we'll see a lot of that. Paul believes that institutional investment in crypto will be large enough to drive the total market cap of digital assets to more than $10 trillion. More than triple its $3 trillion market cap peak, which was hit back in 2021. Quitting him again here, the asset class at peak was $3 trillion in 2021, the same year we hit the all time high of $69 ,000, just FYI. It's almost impossible for the retail investors to continue this pace of adoption. It needs institutional capital as well, which drives out the ongoing adoption curve. So my view is still by the end of this cycle, this space is probably $10 trillion plus. And that happens because of the institutions coming into the space, offering more products to their clients. And he continues. So institutions coming into the space tends to mean that BlackRock, the world's largest asset manager, offers a product to their network of advisors. So it allows more money to come into the space via different mechanisms. An example, aggregated mechanisms of funds as opposed to individual accounts being open on Binance, for example. So there you have it. Let me know if you agree or disagree with the macro guru that were likely to see a $10 trillion crypto market cap, more than 3X the peak that we reached in 2021. Let me know in the comments below. And to watch this video he did entitled Binance VIP Voices, episode one with Raoul Pal from Real Vision. Check the show notes below the video in the description. And now for our next story of the day. And that's Pantera Capital predicting the Bitcoin price to soar above $140 ,000 in the coming times ahead. Let's break down this outlook and then we'll cover the latest from Fidelity. And their $100 million Bitcoin price prediction. Here we go. And if you'd love to see a $150 ,000 Bitcoin price for the cycle peak, let me know. In its latest blockchain letter released on August 22nd, executives at the crypto asset manager doubled down on their Bitcoin bullish price forecast for 2024 and beyond. Now the Bitcoin price performance depends heavily on its halving cycles. Pantera Capital argues with the next due within the coming 12 months. In fact, the next halving is scheduled to be in April of 2024, less than nine months. Take that. The firm is betting that historical trends shall continue. Bitcoin, it notes, tends to put in a cycle bottom and top roughly equal lengths of time from each block subsidy halving. Facts, which cuts the number of Bitcoin paid to miners per block by 50%, quoting the firm here. Bitcoin has historically bottomed 477 days prior to the halving climb leading into it and then exploded to the upside. Afterward, the post halving rallies have averaged 480 days from the halving to the peak of that next bull cycle. That same theory suggests that the 2022 bear market bottom marked the current Bitcoin price cycle bottom, quoting them here. If history were to repeat itself, the price of Bitcoin should have trough December 30th, 2022. And looking forward by the halving date in April of 2024, Bitcoin could be trading at around 35 ,000, something that is still on track to accomplish. I'd say that's quite conservative considering that's just a few more thousand from where we're currently at. However, what happens in the 480 days afterward involves not only a new all time high, but so much more. Quitting Pantera here, the 2016 halving decreased the supply of new Bitcoins, only one third as much as the first. But interestingly, it had exactly one third the price impact. The 2020 halving reduced the supply of new Bitcoins by 43 % relative to the previous halving. It had a 23 % as a big impact on price, Pantera stated. The next halving is expected to occur April 20th, 2024, roughly, what is that, eight months out. Since most Bitcoiners are now in circulation or Bitcoins, each halving will be almost exactly half as a big reduction in the new supply. If history were to repeat, the next halving would see Bitcoin rising to 35 ,000 per coin before the halving and 148 ,000 after the halving. Now, 480 days from the April 2024 halving makes Bitcoin scheduled to hit its next all time high by July of 2025. Let me know if you agree or disagree with Pantera. Now, Pantera is far from alone in predicting a six figure Bitcoin price high beyond next year. We also have optimistic forecasts, including those based on Bitcoin's so -called lowest price forward metric, which this month showed Bitcoin passing the $100 ,000 mark by 2026. And naturally, there are a lot of bullish metrics predicting six figures plus, including the stock, the flow. Others also believe that $100 ,000 is possible not before the next year's halving, but some analysts are saying we can hit $100 ,000 before the halving. So I'd love to know your thoughts. Let me know in the comments right down below. Welcome, everyone, just tuning in to the live show. Now let's break down our final breaking story of the day. And that's a $100 million price prediction per coin for Bitcoin as per Fidelity, one of the world's largest asset management companies. They control currently over $4 trillion in assets under management. The other year, they were maybe as high as $8 trillion. So you know, it fluctuates. But again, one of the largest asset managers in the world. Let's break this down, shall we? While several retail analysts have been given some crazy targets for Bitcoin, this time investment giant Fidelity has made some mind blowing predictions in its recently held very special webinar. Just FYI, this prediction was made back in September of 2021 on $100 million by the year 2035. And a few months later, he ultimately said, I think we're a little bearish. Let's raise it 10x to $1 billion per coin by the year 2038. So I'm going to be breaking both of these predictions down for you here in just a moment. Now Fidelity has been in the crypto space for a while. The financial giant has its own crypto subsidiary offering enterprise grade Bitcoin custodial services to institutions, drawing inferences through the stock to flow model by Plan B. Fidelity has put forward a $100 million price target for Bitcoin by the year 2035. And furthermore, it sees Bitcoin touching a $1 million price target in a decade's time. Bitcoin's exchange guide was the first to report about it. Shout out to the Bitcoin exchange guide. Now Jarian Timmer, director of Global Macro, was the host of the webinar, and he shared several charts helping the audience understand Bitcoin. Now, is it even a realistic expectation for Bitcoin to touch that $100 million mark? Although we have 15 years of the time horizon to touch these targets, it seems unrealistic at this point, one of the crypto analysts on Reddit noted. And furthermore, Timmer also shared charts showing the Bitcoin adoption curve based on its active address count. He also showed an interesting comparison with internet users, broadband subscriptions, as well as mobile phone users. And interestingly, the webinar put some light on the purchasing power of different asset classes. Stocks were the clear winner, followed by bonds and cash. The purchasing power of the US dollar stood the least. The yellow metal, aka physical gold, isn't even doing better at $94, whereas the inflation index has skyrocketed to $65. And after staying under pressure for the past two days, Bitcoin ends on another attempt for $50 ,000. And again, this was going all the way back to 2021. So a few months later, Jarian Timmer, head of Global Macro at Fidelity, makes another very prediction interesting that the Bitcoin price is not going to $100 million no more. It's going to a billion dollars per coin by the year 2038. So let's talk about how realistic this could be. To support his forecast, Timmer employed a combination of models and charts with a particular focus of the stock to flow model and his own demand model. These analytical tools form the foundation for his primary prediction. And you could actually see in this chart brought to you by Fidelity, the above demand model employs Metcalfe's law. And according to this, the number of its users grows linearly, a network's value or by inference, the Bitcoin price grows geometrically. This means that the utility and the adoption of Bitcoin are expected to grow more rapidly compared to its network of users, exchanges, ATMs and participating retailers. Therefore, this model predicted the Bitcoin price to reach $1 million by 2030. And let's talk about that really quick, because we also have other major, major influencers in the space, including ARK Invest's Cathy Wood, also predicting a $1 million Bitcoin price. We have Michael Saylor, we have Max Kaiser, we have Plan B of the stock to flow model, and the list goes on and on. But anyways, back to this prediction. In contrast, Timmer stock to flow supply model noted the event of significant price surges during each halving event. Consequently, when considering this model in conjunction to other factors, it foresees a price range of $1 million to $10 million for Bitcoin by the year 2030, virtually the same prediction as the stock to flow model. Timmer's demand model is more inclined towards reflecting the bottom of the Bitcoin price. But on the other hand, the stock to flow model seems to provide a better approximation for the peak of the king coin. However, it's worth noting that the disparity between these two models widened significantly beyond the year 2030. The reason behind the gap is expected to be the changing value of the dollar. Can anyone say hyperinflation coming to the USD? Timmer proposes that the value of the dollar undergoes fluctuations over time when compared to other assets. For instance, if $1 was invested in stocks during the 18th century, its present day value would be about $4 billion. That's crazy, right? And similarly, Timmer implied that if $1 million is invested today, it can grow to $1 billion in a span of 20 years. So he's virtually saying, want to become a billionaire? Just invest $1 million into Bitcoin and HODL be thy name. This further revealed that the purchasing power of the dollar has significantly reduced due to the factors like inflation as well as depreciation. Thus Timmer's statement implied that keeping a fixed amount of dollars for many years may lead to a reduced purchasing power due to the assets changing value. And I think he makes a great point as Michael Saylor called it. It's like a melting ice cube keeping fiat currency in the bank. It just makes no sense whatsoever. Now check it, over the last few years, an increasing number of companies are taking over the $1 trillion market cap mark. As a result, it is foreseeable that in the next two decades, 20 years, the concept of a trillion dollar valuation will become more common so much that individuals themselves could be worth a trillion dollars or even more. The scale of numbers may even reach the quadrillion range. I already know for a fact people like Michael Saylor and CZ, the Binance CEO, will become trillionaires. Mark my words. And despite Bitcoin's historical growth, it has recently faced a significant setback. Bitcoin's network activity had diminished. Well again, this is tracing that back. Higher network activity likely increased transaction volume. Well something I have to point out, yesterday as I covered in the show, we just reached a new difficulty adjustment, the highest it's ever been. The hash rate continues to go up and as Max Keiser commonly says, the Bitcoin price follows the hash rate. So we'll likely see how the Bitcoin price will likely play out, you know, by the time of the next halving, which again is what, eight, nine months away in 2024. And then of course, by 2030, will the Bitcoin price be a million dollars or $10 million? Will the US dollar be hyperinflated by that time? And could this be a realistic scenario by the year 2038? One bit, oh shit, one Bitcoin, but we can literally hit an insane $1 billion price value for the king crypto. So, let me know your honest thoughts in the comments right down below. And don't forget to check out cryptonewsalerts .net for the full premium experience with video and to participate in the live Q &A. And I look forward to seeing you on tomorrow's episode, HODL. Actually at the end of the day, in today's show, we'll be breaking down the latest technical analysis as well as breaking news, BRICs to officially abandon the US dollar for trade settlements, Max Keiser's response. This is what happens. The BRICs following up on Russia's big win in the Ukraine will launch a gold -backed currency. The reaction from NATO countries will be to fatally panic print fiat money. We'll also be discussing analysts issuing a dire warning for Bitcoin, says Bitcoin can plunge to new 2022 lows. I'll be sharing all of his targets as well as Glassnode founders predict Bitcoin to soar to new highs. And I'll give you a hint, it's in the six -figure range. We'll also be discussing ex -Goldman Sachs executive Raul Powell predicts the crypto market to hit a $10 trillion valuation after family offices and institutions arrive. We'll also be discussing breaking news the Bitcoin halving can take the Bitcoin price action to $148 ,000 by July of 2025, according to Pantera Capital. We'll also be discussing our breaking story of the day, Fidelity expects the Bitcoin price to soar to $100 million per coin by the year 2035. We'll also be taking a look at the overall crypto market, all this plus so much more in today's show.
A highlight from 1380: Bitcoin ETF Will Send BTC to $1,000,000 - Michael Saylor
"In today's show, I'm going to be breaking down the latest technical analysis as the Bitcoin difficulty jumps six percent to a new peak as miners ignore the Bitcoin price dip. We'll also be discussing one metric hinting at an opportunity of a lifetime to be accumulating BTC. We'll also be discussing the 20 billion dollar delay as the appeal court pushes back the decision on Grayscale spot Bitcoin ETF. We'll also be sharing Bitcoin still on track for a huge bull market despite losing critical support. According to top crypto analyst Dave the Wave and quoting Max Kaiser, gold prices are provably manipulated. Arresting these guys hasn't stopped it. Bitcoin futures ETFs, not spot price ETFs, allow similar price suppression scams. This is why futures ETFs are getting approval, but not the spot price ones. We'll also be discussing Michael Saylor's one million dollar price prediction. He says it looks like a spot ETF will probably get approved, sending the Bitcoin price to one million dollars per coin. We'll also be taking a look at the overall crypto market. All this plus so much more in today's show. Yo, what's good crypto fam? This is first and foremost a video show. So if you want the full premium experience with video, visit my YouTube channel at cryptonewsalerts .net. Welcome everyone. Just tuning in and joining us. The crypto market is pumping once again, which we love to see. Bitcoin's on the cusp of recapturing 27 ,000 and the entire market is back in the green. If that excites you, let me know in the comments below. Checking out our market watch right here and shout out to everyone in the live chat. You can see Bitcoin trading at 26 ,700, up three and a half percent for the day. We have Ether trading at just about 1 ,704 % for the day, and some of the top gainers in the top cryptos include Solana and Cardano. And checking out coinmarketcap .com, we're back on the climb with about 37 billion in volume in the past 24 hours. The Bitcoin dominance at 48 and a half percent and the Ether dominance at 18 .9 % and checking out the top 100 crypto gainers for the past week. AC of green, finally, it's about time. Only a handful in the red, massive gains across the entire altcoin market. And checking out the crypto greed and fear index. We're still stuck in fear, unfortunately, but I have a good feeling this will be updated tomorrow, probably back in neutral. Last month we were in greed. And now let's check out our Bitcoin technical analysis for the day. Check out the charts and what is happening. And again, welcome to everyone just joining us. Make sure to say hello in the live chat and let us know where you're tuning in from. For the technicals, we're using trading view today. You can see the oscillators overall. The signal is neutral and we have a strong sell for the moving averages at this current time. You can see relative strength index on the left neutral. The majority of all of these indicators are neutral, but on the right, most of the exponential moving averages are currently in sell territory as a lot of people have been selling, I'd say in the past 48, 72 hours. But guess what? We're pumping and back in the green. So hopefully we can climb back above 27 ,000 and eventually recapture that 32 ,000 level, which is the current high for the year. And a quick reminder, there's not much resistance in between that 32 and 40 ,000 levels. So do you guys think we're likely to continue dropping down as everyone was preaching doom and gloom the past two, three days in the market when we had like over a billion dollars liquidated, et cetera? Let me know your honest thoughts in the comments right down below. You already know you're tuned into crypto news alerts. I am bullish every single day, 365 days out of the year, because I understand Bitcoin. I understand the long haul trajectory is up because I have a long term investment mindset. I'm looking at this thing five, 10 years plus out. I'm not looking, what's the price going to be tomorrow or next week? Let me know if you guys can relate. But with that being shared, fam, now let's discuss the Bitcoin difficulty adjustment, which just occurred, which is always a good sign as the network continues to get stronger and stronger. And this is a very strong fundamentals. Bitcoin's network fundamentals are in no mood to follow bearish Bitcoin price action this week. The latest on -chain data confirms that difficulty hits yet another all time high with the hash rate not far behind. And as Max Keiser commonly shares, the Bitcoin price follows the hash rate. That's facts, fam. Keeping that in mind, let me know if you are currently bullish. Despite dropping 10 % last week, the miners appear to be taking the price downturn in their stride. This was cemented in the network activity August 22nd as difficulty increased 6 % at its latest biweekly automated adjustment. Not only was this enough to take the difficulty to the new record highs, but it also marked Bitcoin's sixth largest difficulty uptick of this year and figures for monitoring resource BTC .com show. Difficulty is a reflection of both miner capitulation and the Bitcoin network security, and its upwards trajectory suggests that the miners are not yet struggling when it comes to profitability. That means the miners earn profit. The next automated readjustment is already due to continue the trend, taking difficulty over 56 trillion for the first time in history. And here you're looking at that all time high chart for the difficulty adjustment, showing the Bitcoin network fundamentals stronger than ever. Now, a similar story concerns the hash rate, the estimated hashing deployment by miners to the Bitcoin blockchain. And while not possible to calculate exactly, so depending upon the source, hash rate is already challenging existing all time highs of over 400 exahashes per second. Let's freaking go. Responding to the data, we have the MACD, a contributor to on -chain analytics platform CryptoQuant, referenced high confidence in the security and reliability amongst network participants for both Bitcoin and the largest altcoin, Ether, quoting them here. Recently, the prices of Bitcoin and Ethereum have fallen by negative 10%. However, the network security and reliability have increased. Go figure. First, the Bitcoin hash rate shows higher figures during the decline, which shows that miners are more active in Bitcoin mining. And second, the Ethereum staking rate shows that more ETH has been staked, even though the price has fallen, quoting them again. This means that investors have high confidence in the security and reliability of Bitcoin and the Ether networks. The fact that the price had fallen, despite the increase in the intrinsic value of the two assets, means that they are undervalued and it can be considered a time to actively accumulate those assets. So you're already no fan, keep stacking them sass. And isn't this a sexy chart showing you the Bitcoin hash rate as it continues to climb? And separate data from on -chain analytics firm Glassnode shows little tangible change in the amount of Bitcoin held by mining entities. This stood at just over 1 .83 million BTC as of yesterday, up by a steady 0 .08 % since the start of the month. So there you have it. I mean, let me know in the comments, how many of you are currently bullish on the King crypto and anticipating that price climbing as we inch closer and closer to that Bitcoin having right around the corner, estimated to be sometime in April of 2024. We also are going to be talking about the spot Bitcoin ETF as upon approval, we can send the Bitcoin price North of $1 million, according to the one and only Michael Saylor, which will be covered in great detail a little later on in the show. Now let's discuss some mass accumulation going on. We've been discussing this as the whales continue to huddle and continue to stack sats while the short term hodlers are the ones with the weak hands, the paper hands who are selling to the strong hands. But anyways, let's discuss this accumulation crypto data platform Santiment is offering insight into signals that could indicate the right time to accumulate Bitcoin as well as the alts. Santiment marketing director Brian Quinn volian says that buying opportunities for crypto assets have historically presented themselves when trader sentiment is neither pessimistic or optimistic across the major social media platforms such as Reddit and X, quitting them here when all four social media platforms align and have settled back down to mentions of buying the dip. This is when the actual opportunity has historically presented itself for patient traders. Patience be thy name. What's up, sages? Now, believe it or not, it is a good sign that people are no longer certain that this is a buy the dip spot. It means that pessimism is beginning to take over again as the market caps fade. And according to the analysts, optimism in the crypto community was high immediately after Bitcoin fell close to 26 ,000 the first time since June. But the sentiment quickly changed, quitting them again. What has happened following the Bitcoin dropped to 26 ,100 and subsequent altcoin bloodbath for starters, it is no surprise. We saw a huge rise in buy the dip mentions. This indicates that trader optimism was quite high and there could be a quick market recovery. But look at how the wishful thinking has died down considerably in the past few days. Now on the level of discussion that Bitcoin and the alts are currently experiencing, Santiment's director of marketing shared the following. We can also see that the percentage of discussions related to Bitcoin spike to its highest level of the year on the tail end of the market crash. However, instead of Bitcoin social dominance staying high, it quickly dropped back down to relatively normal levels as traders appear to be showing some greed in relation to whatever the hot altcoin on the block are currently. Now, we could actually like to see the social dominance stay quite high as this scenario is usually correlated with thriving and healthy crypto markets. High discussion related to the number one asset coincides with fear, whereas discussions about more speculative assets tend to coincide with greed and fear is when the markets rise. Facts. So there you have it. Let me know if you are currently accumulating or are you getting rid of your bags in hopes that the price drops lower? I know a lot of people were like very bearish in the past few days in the show. They're like, we're going to be dropping back down sub $20 ,000. Some people predicting a new low for the cycle. Current low is sitting at roughly $15 ,700. And I'm skeptical of all that. There's always a probability that anything could happen, but I just do not see the price action dropping sub $20 ,000, but we'll see how it plays out. I'm just too bullish coming with that halving around the corner. All the ETFs and the apps from the likes of Fidelity and BlackRock and the list goes on and on. Obviously, that's the smart money and we like to follow the smart money and not the dumb money as we discuss often here in the show. Now let's discuss in more detail the Spot Bitcoin ETF and what is happening.
A highlight from 1375: MAX KEISER: Bitcoin Will Rocket to $3,000,000
"Holla at your boy. Lots to cover as the crypto bloodbath continues in today's show. I'll be breaking down the latest technical analysis, as literally there was a billion dollars worth of liquidations. We'll also be discussing SpaceX Bitcoin right down, sparks a massive confusion. The question is, did Elon and SpaceX really dump three hundred and seventy three million worth of Bitcoin, or is it nothing more than FUD? We'll also be discussing U .S. Congressman issues a warning on CBDC says they pose an existential threat to Western civilization. We'll also be discussing tornado cash loses its lawsuit against the U .S. government. I'll be breaking down this report, as well as breaking news. The judge grants the SEC request to file a motion for the appeal with the Ripple XRP case. And Max Kaiser, our fearless leader, quoting him here, Bitcoin has already and will continue to outperform everything else so spectacularly by one hundred X or more that anyone holding fiat stocks, bonds, gold and all the coins, property, etc., will literally be impoverished. We'll also be taking a look at the overall crypto market. All this plus so much more in today's show. Yo, what's good, crypto fam? This is first and foremost, a video show. So if you want the full premium experience with video, visit my rumble channel at CryptonewsAlerts .net. Again, that's CryptonewsAlerts .net. And welcome y 'all just joining us. Now let's dive into our market watch and check out this insanity of this bloodbath currently going on in the Bitcoin market. You should be able to see on your screen. Let me know in the chat. Bitcoin's currently just holding on to twenty six thousand one hundred by a thread. We've already touched in the twenty five thousand range. We're still down six percent for the day. Ether down four percent, trading at sixteen hundred dollars. And some of the biggest losers naturally is some of these alts. XRP down thirteen percent, barely holding on to fifty cents. We have Solana down seven percent, trading at twenty one bucks and also XLM and Litecoin are in the blood red. And checking out CoinMarketCap .com, the current crypto market cap sits at one point zero five trillion dollars, but about seventy billion in volume in the past twenty four hours. So the volume is up roughly fifty eight percent. We've got the Bitcoin dominance at forty eight point three percent, with the ether dominance at nineteen percent even. And checking out the SOT 100 crypto gainers in the past twenty four hours, probably not much, just what you see here. We have AKT, which I have never heard of, up thirty three percent, trading at a dollar thirty nine, followed by Injective up seven percent, trading at seven dollars and seventy eight cents, followed by Tether Gold, which I have never heard of, barely in the green, trading just under nineteen hundred dollars. And virtually the entire crypto market is bleeding in in the red with the biggest losers, including Conflux, Litecoin and XRP for the past twenty four hours. And if you check out the top losers for the past week, yikes. I mean, we're talking about anywhere from ten to twenty, even as high as thirty percent losses, not looking good right now for the alts. And checking out the crypto greed and fear index, we're currently rated to thirty seven, finally back in fear. We have been stuck in neutral and greed for the bulk of the year. We're finally back in fear. Yesterday was a fifty neutral, last week a fifty one and last month also a fifty in neutral. Now, welcome to everyone just joining us. Someone earlier asked in the chat and they're like, yo, smash that down arrow button, dislike this video because he's sharing predictions of millions of dollars. Meanwhile, there's a bloodbath in the market. And I responded like I'm not losing any sleep over this dump. All I do is continue to stack sats and I sleep like a baby. Why is that? Because I'm not an ish coiner. I have the most pristine cryptocurrency, decentralized, incorruptible, unconfiscatable crypto, and the only one that there is and that is Bitcoin. So why everyone else is crying and panicking? I'm stacking sats. I just spent an entire day at the pool with my daughter having a grand old time. I'm not sweating it whatsoever. And I think if you're a Bitcoiner, you feel the same way because one Bitcoin is still equivalent to what? One Bitcoin. Who cares? The fiat crap, you know, value equivalent. It's irrelevant. One Bitcoin will always be equivalent to one Bitcoin. And with that being shared, let's dive into today's Bitcoin technical analysis and check out some of these blood charts we're witnessing right now. Bitcoin stayed near two month lows at the August 18th Wall Street open as the markets came to terms with extreme liquidations, which we can see here not looking so great. And data from Cointelegraph and TradingView showed Bitcoin price action tracking sideways after a single day candle spawned an 8 % loss. Bitcoin saw a cascade of liquidations across the derivative markets, which is used as a financial weapon of mass destruction, with these accounting for an outsized majority amid the relatively lack spot selling. Quoting QCP Capital, In Deribbit, it is likely that a large account got wiped considering the immense short liquidation that occurred together. And as you can see here, shorts are getting wrecked. I mean, so many positions are getting wrecked, obviously. Now, QCP, like others noted that the market reaction to the alleged trigger are right down to SpaceX's $373 million on their Bitcoin holdings, which appeared to be exaggerated. And in our next story, we're going to be diving deeper into this. And is it just all FUD or is there any truth to this story? Now, the total liquidations challenge those seen in the immediate aftermath of the FTX exchange meltdown, the event which resulted in Bitcoin dip into two year lows and the current low of the cycle, which is $15 ,600 back in November of 2022. Quoting the Kibisi letter, This feels like yet another sign of drying liquidity markets have seen over the last few weeks. And for popular trader Rec Capital, here's what he had to share. Bitcoin formed its higher high at $31 ,000 on inclining volume, but the price formed the second half of its double top on the declining volume. And an accompanying chart showed trading volume on the daily timeframes, as Rec Capital warned that capitulation had likely not yet matched the previous selloffs. Quoting him again, Though there was a small breakout in the seller volume on this crash, it is still nowhere near the seller exhaustion volume levels of the previous Bitcoin reversals in which he explained. In fact, current seller volume would need to probably double to reach those seller exhaustion volume levels that prompted the price reversals in early and late March, as well as mid -June. Meanwhile, others were more optimistic as pointing out to the RSI. Every cycle, including the weekly Bitcoin RSI experiences, a fakeout of the bull market start line comes lasting longer than others, and every one of them makes a revisit to the 0 .382 Fibonacci retrace of the move. And with the latest drop, both of those things are now complete. And also QCP points out, We believe that a low now rests on Powell's speech at Jackson Hill next week. And so there you have it. How low do you think the Bitcoin price action is likely to go during this dump? Let me know your honest thoughts in the comments right down below, which leads us to our next story of the day. Let's discuss everything SpaceX and the FUD circulating in the markets right now. What exactly is causing this mass liquidation of over a billion dollars of positions to be liquidated just like that? Let's break it down and let me know your thoughts also in the comments. SpaceX's Bitcoin write down report on August 18th sparked mass confusion within the crypto community. The report published in the Wall Street Journal puzzled many. Keep in mind, that's the mainstream who questioned whether SpaceX held 373 million bucks worth of Bitcoin and sold it in 2021 and 2022, or whether they only reduced their Bitcoin exposure by the same amount. Several social media outlets reported that SpaceX had sold this entire Bitcoin holdings. Maybe that's what crashed the market, while others expressed uncertainty, claiming they were unable to confirm the amount based on the wording of the report. As pointed out here, I actually read the Wall Street Journal report, and I think Bitcoin magazine is wrong. Yes, the report claims that SpaceX marked down the value of the Bitcoin by 373 million, but that doesn't mean they sold 373 million and sold some, but selling some doesn't necessarily mean they have no Bitcoin left. And I think they make a great point. Then Elon Musk, well, he revealed this in 2021 that SpaceX was holding Bitcoin as does Tesla on his balance sheet. And while Tesla's Bitcoin holdings were made public, there were no estimations around the SpaceX Bitcoin holdings, which have been key to the ongoing confusion. Tesla once held 1 .5 billion worth of BTC purchased during the bull market, but revealed it has sold 72 % of his holdings in quarter two of 2022. The SpaceX write -off claims were also believed to be one of the key catalysts behind the 2000 Bitcoin price drop, although several others denied that being the cause. Musk hasn't addressed the issue as of yet, but the market FUD made him target of Bitcoin proponents who questioned his strategy of buying high and selling low, while a few others called it market FUD. What are your thoughts? Do you think this is nothing more than mainstream FUD published by the Wall Street Journal specifically to tank the markets? Very interesting thought, right? One Reddit user wrote that Musk is running out of cash across all of his companies, suggesting that Musk might sell all of his Bitcoin and doge within the next six months. And users on X also called out Musk for his paper hands, which we commonly make fun of him for quoting them here. Musk appears to be going to toe to toe against Bitcoin and his ex empire. I wish him well, although I don't think this is wise. That's coming from Dr. Jeff Ross. While the dilemma around SpaceX Bitcoin holdings continues, Bitcoin proponents advocated traders to huddle Bitcoin and not fall for the market FUD. I think that's a great point. As pointed out here, SpaceX didn't sell his Bitcoin and neither did Elon Musk. Now sit back, relax, and just some intelligent guys getting $700 million in longs. Don't leverage, be patient, and just huddle. Sage advice, as we all know, huddle be thy name. And when in doubt, try to relax. Get your mind off of the price action. Like I said earlier, I spent the entire day in the pool, soaking up those sun rays here in Puerto Rico, and I'm not losing any sleep over these dumps. I just will continue stacking sats and counting my blessings because I'm a Bitcoiner and not an ishcoiner. And again, the ishcoins are the ones that get wrecked when Bitcoin drops 8%. Some of these altcoins will drop 10, 20, maybe as high as 30%. So that's the wreckage, you know, comes with the territory, no risk, no reward. Obviously, altcoins are very risky, but hence, when they pump, they could be very rewarding at the same time. So you got to find an equilibrium, right? Anyways, now let's discuss the existential threat, says Congressman regarding central bank digital currencies, better known as CBDCs. Let's break this baby down. And again, welcome to everyone just joining. Make some noise in live chat. Let me know where you're tuning in from. This is a very good warning coming from US Congressman Warren Davidson, warning that the central bank digital currencies, better known as CBDCs, can result in a dystopian future. Facts. The Ohio Republican tells his 80 ,000 ex -followers he believes that CBDCs could transform money into a powerful means of governmental control and plans to introduce legislation to criminalize the development of these types of assets. So everyone, please show this Congressman Warren Davidson some love, because I don't know many other congressmen coming out sharing that. And we all know this is fact because we're bitcoiners, quitting him here to make the point crystal clear. I am working on legislation to criminalize designing, building, testing, developing, or establishing a central bank digital currency. CBDC poses an existential threat to Western civilization by corrupting money into a tool for coercion and control. Now, sound money serves as a stable store of value and an efficient means of exchange. Now, Davidson also says he wants to prohibit CBDCs because they threaten other digital assets such as bitcoin and pitting the development of beneficial financial technology, quitting him again. Central bank digital currency poses a serious threat of all digital assets. As I said at a flyover fintech, many people wrongfully conflate even bitcoin with a CBDC. I'd say the average individual knows no difference because they're completely ignorant to cryptocurrency. But if you watch the show, you already know CBDCs are pure evil programmable government money and bitcoin is the antidote. Now, at least most agree that CBDC is evil, the financial equivalent of the Death Star. No, that's true. Now, don't become an accomplice to anyone designing, building, testing, developing, or establishing CBDC. Banning CBDC is essential to America's fintech future. Davidson calls out several entities currently working on CBDCs, including Ripple Labs. That's right. Tokenized assets are not the problem, it's the people. Entities, including the Fed, Ripple, and Consensus and influencers are actively working on CBDC projects. So it's no secret. The congressman says the CBDCs are the complete opposite of decentralized finance and vows to prevent their adoption, quoting him again. Current CBDC versions are centrally managed permission database dependent on digital ID. This is the opposite of DeFi, where the entire computing architecture is designed to protect privacy and enable permissionless peer -to -peer transactions. 100 plus countries are studying, developing, or implementing the same creepy surveillance state technology as China. So there you have it. You have been warned. I warn you virtually every single day on the show to stay away from CBDCs, as Bitcoin is the antidote, and we don't trust the government, and we don't trust their fiat money. Why would we trust their digital version of government fiat money? It would make no sense whatsoever. But anyways, fam, now let's discuss the conclusion regarding the tornado cash lawsuit. Unfortunately for the community, the government won. Then we'll discuss the latest with the Ripple XRP appeal, followed by the latest predictions from Max Keiser, suggesting Bitcoin will continue to outpace every other asset and climb another 100x from the current price, virtually predicting a $3 million Bitcoin price action. And then we'll dive into our live Q &A. So yeah, let's discuss tornado cash. And how many of you have ever used it before? Do let me know. Tornado cash is the most well -known crypto mixing service sanctioned by the US Office of Foreign Asset Control last August. The decision was a result of a long -lasting spat between the regulator and the crypto mixer dating back to at least 2018, when two persons of special interest in the US government were found to be using its services. Now, although crypto mixers do indeed appeal to cyber criminals, their main purpose is to grant extra privacy to those who want it. In order for a crypto mixer to work as intended, the number of beginning users must be much higher than the amount of bad actors using it, with no sizable amounts of assets to mix. The operation falls flat. Now, is this with the distinction in mind that Coinbase supported tornado cash's appeal against the sanctions? Well, as pointed out here, the rights are rarely secured on a path that is always up, and we will continue to believe plaintiff's challenge to OFAC's tornado cash action is right. We have always known that the Fifth Circuit Review is required to resolve these issues. So this is ultimately Coinbase pushing back and saying, hey, this isn't right. The government shouldn't be allowed to do this. Now, also keep in mind that according to the court documents, Torquato Cash's argument focused on its definition as a decentralized open source software project made of smart contracts on the Ethereum blockchain. However, the minting of torn tokens administrated by the tornado cash DAO led the government to believe otherwise. And although DAO is a technically autonomous, the court argued that whoever holds the most funds has the most voting power and therefore re -centralizing decisions in a roundabout way. The case was presided by Judge Pittman of the U .S. District Court for the Western District of Texas, and motivating his decision to turn down the lawsuit, Judge Pittman stated, in the eyes of the U .S. government, tornado cash is indeed an entity with a property interest, and therefore the OFAC sanctions of the crypto mixer do not qualify as governmental overreach. Quoting them here, this case is about tornado cash, but the parties disagree on how to characterize tornado cash. Plaintiffs argue that the designation of tornado cash exceeds the department's statutory authority over foreign nationals' interests in property and violates the free speech clause. The government, on the other hand, argues that tornado cash is an entity that may be designated and that it has a property interest in smart contracts. So unless further arguments are brought forth, tornado cash will remain on the OFAC's specially designated national list, which prevents the entity from doing business with the banking sector and a wide range of businesses. So there you have it. What are your thoughts on this? Do you think this is unlawful and overreach of the government bodies in the SEC? Let me know your honest thoughts in the comments right down below. Now let's discuss the latest with the Ripple lawsuit versus the SEC. As many of you know, Ripple Labs did get a slight victory, and it was determined by Judge Torres that XRP was not being sold as an unregistered security, as the SEC deemed. And so, however, Gary Gensler is not accepting that the SEC is not accepting the verdict from the judge and is ultimately going to be appealing this decision. So let's now break this one down, shall we? Yeah, very interesting indeed. Check it out. Judge Torres has granted a request from the US SEC to file a motion for leave to file for the interlocutory appeal in the case against Ripple Labs. The security regulator sent a letter to Torres August 9th Well, duh. But according to the US law, this appeal occurs when a ruling by trial court is appealed while other aspects of the case are still proceeding. The decision allows the SEC to file a motion by August 18th, which is today, requesting permission to bring a case to the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. Ripple will also be able to file an opposition to the motion. Now, the decision comes just a few hours after Ripple Labs voiced opposition to a potential appeal for the case. Ripple lawyers put forth three main arguments in opposition to the SEC request. They first argued that an appeal requires a pure question of law and that the SEC's request raises no new legal issues that need to be renewed. They also argued that the SEC's claim of an incorrect court ruling on the matter is not sufficient and that an immediate appeal will not advance the termination of litigation proceedings. Quoting their CEO, Brad Garlinghouse, reminder, the request for appeal, even if granted, doesn't change the fact that XRP is not a security. That's not up for debate or trial, but the SEC continues to claim that Chris and I acted recklessly in believing that XRP is not a security. Yada, yada, yada. Now, Torres ruled on July 13th that Ripple's native XRP token is not a security when distributed in public sales, aka exchanges, but that the ruling considered XRP a security and institutional sales. Interesting. The case against Ripple has been ongoing since December of 2020. Holy moly. When the SEC sued Ripple and his two chief executives, including Brad Garlinghouse and Chris Larson, over allegations that the company was offering an unregistered security. And in a recent interview with Bloomberg, Garlinghouse shared his belief that the SEC would face a lengthy appeal process, putting him here, as a matter of law, the law of the land right now is that XRP is not a security. And until there is an opportunity for the SEC to file the appeal, which could take years, frankly, we are very optimistic. He noted, and according to Garlinghouse, an appeal against the retail sales ruling would only further solidify the decision that Torres made. So there you have it. You also have to keep in mind for this to go to the appeal and do a whole new trial could take years. So in the interim, meaning in the meantime, meanwhile, XRP is not a security unregistered security being sold on the exchanges. So all the exchanges have the permissions to relist it. And in fact, a lot of the major exchanges have already relisted XRP for this reason. However, if they have another trial, let's hypothetically say three years from now, and after another trial, the judge changes the ruling and it's deemed an unregistered security, then it can be like deja vu all over again, like going back to 2020, it gets delisted from all the exchanges. And to me, that is very scary. And you can thank No Clarity Gary for that one. So how do you think this is likely to play out? Do you think the SEC is just wasting their time? I mean, I personally look at it this way. The SEC has unlimited resources. They have all the money in the world, the money printer, you know what I mean? Will continue to go burp for their needs. And so they can virtually do anything they want. I think it's overreach. Obviously, it's the crypto crackdown. Unfortunately, it's likely to continue. However, I think the lawsuit against Coinbase and Binance, et cetera, can help set precedent, just as the XRP lawsuit has. And I think that thus far, it's been a win for crypto because the SEC is not getting their way. And of course, they're not going to be happy. Of course, they're going to appeal it. Of course, Gary is not going to give us what we want and protect the investors whatsoever because they're just protecting their own pockets at the end of the day. And that's just the reality of the life that we live in here in the crypto sphere. But with that being shared, fam, let me know your thoughts. And now let's break down our main story of the day. And that's Max Kaiser predicting that the Bitcoin price will rise to $3 million. We don't care if Bitcoin is crashing because we're in this for the long haul. So cry me a river, y 'all. But with that being shared, yeah, first, let's start with this quote he recently shared on Twitter dated August 11th, which got 62 ,000 views. He wrote, Bitcoin has already and will continue to outperform everything else so spectacularly by 100 X or more that anyone holding fiat stocks, bonds, gold, all the coins, property, et cetera, will literally be impoverished. Very powerful words. Now, at the time he made this prediction, Bitcoin was close to 30 ,000. So what is 100 X times 30 ,000? That's $3 million per coin. And now quoting him from a more recent interview he did with Swan, maybe about a week or so ago, I posted this on X, formerly known as Twitter on, let's see, August 12th. So the following day after he made that post, it got 131 ,000 views, fam. And here's what Max Kaiser had to share. With Bitcoin, it's kind of the end of price discovery because everything will eventually be priced in Bitcoin. Everything goes to zero against Bitcoin. Bet you heard that one before. And so for someone like myself who has been following this for 40 years, the finance markets, technology, Bitcoin is the holy grail. It is the end all preach. I would say my compatriot in all of this is Michael Saylor. When you hear Michael Saylor talk, he talks about the aesthetics of Bitcoin, the beauty of Bitcoin. And he speaks about it in a way I think carries the torch from the Max and Stacey from 2011. Now he started buying it, I guess, when it was 10 or $12 ,000 or so in 2020 era. So we were there from 2011 to 2020. And I think he's kind of carried the torch from 2020 in a lot of ways and introduced Bitcoin to massive pools of capital, including to Elon Musk. Note that. I'm surprised that more companies haven't followed his lead, giving the breakup of inflation that we have had exactly as Michael Saylor predicted. The melting ice cube, as he called it, at the exact time and exactly what happened. Well, I guess we can say now we're in an era where BlackRock and these other major institutions are now looking at Bitcoin. So his work on the institutional level, I guess, is bearing fruit. Now, three years later, I see in the Middle East, they are starting to recognize Bitcoin. So that's a huge pool of capital. Yeah. And I think that all that oil money will find its way into Bitcoin and be a huge catalyst for higher prices. So it's a natural way for the oil industry to diversify their portfolio because Bitcoin is essentially energy and the energy eventually gets priced in Bitcoin. And there is a marriage between these two in a big way. So there you have it, his first big prediction that the oil industry is going to diversify into Bitcoin and he continues. So I think that's kind of the answer. I have always been fascinated by price discovery in markets and the architecture of how markets work under the hood. And Bitcoin is such a pristine, perfect money. And I think it's something that humans have been searching for since forever. And now we're seeing it change society on a really fundamental level with the introduction of Bitcoin. Now, a lot of people are freaking out because of it, because it destroys the status quo, preach. And a lot of people who have been waiting for it to come along and had the faith that humanity can be saved. Thank God. I honestly feel humanity would be doomed without Bitcoin. All we have to look forward to is CBDCs and the enslavement of the human race. Now, anyways, continuing, they see Bitcoin in those terms. So you have this split going on, which is very exciting. So it just continues on and on. And how could you not be interested in it? I think the people who were into it earlier, aka Roger Ver, and walked away just never got it from the beginning. Once it's categorized as an asset class, we have nothing to do except position ourselves in this asset class. So either we are going to have a small position or a big position, but we cannot ignore it. We cannot not have a position. Now, listen closely here. So even 1 % of that multi -hundred trillion dollar funds available moves the needle on Bitcoin and it moves it up considerably. He's referring to the five, six, seven hundred dollar or five, six, seven hundred trillion dollar total addressable market. And he continues. So if we get into the five or 10 % range, then you start to really see a raise ahead to the seven figure type predictions that people have been making, including myself, because it is an asset class. But on the flip side, we have what we saw in the gold market, which is the ability to control price discovery and manipulate the prices. And it's real through the derivatives markets. Pay very close attention to what he shares about derivatives here, fam. This is how the powers that be and the central bankers continue to manipulate the precious metal market. So the price of gold has been lagging inflation for 20 years because the government around the world doesn't like gold making their fiat money look bad. So they make it easy for the huge funds to manipulate the price of gold and to scalp and to continuously skim profits off of gold, which is what they do almost every single day. You can watch it and see it. In fact, it's pretty clear. And they are very good at keeping the price of gold and silver down. There's something like for every ounce of silver, there's probably 50 ounces worth of derivatives floating in various exchanges around the world that are used to keep the price of silver down because governments don't want gold to race ahead to draw the capital out of their fiat money scam and into gold. Makes a great point, right? And with Bitcoin, we have the ability to pull our private keys, which is not really available with gold. Technically, people can take delivery of gold on these exchanges, but there's never been an organized attempt to do so preach. And also, let's not forget that the majority of the gold in the world is hoarded by the central bank. So keep that in mind, fam. Anyways, back to Max's quote. We tried to do it a few years ago. It crashed JP Morgan by gold and silver because after the 2008 financial crisis when JP Morgan ended up buying Bear Stearns effectively for nothing, they inherited this multimillion short silver position that Bear Stearns was managing at the behest of presumably the government. The government likes to stay involved. And so I did some calculations and it became clear if this short position was not covered and the price of silver got to $60 or $70 an ounce, it would bankrupt JP Morgan Chase. So we started this crash JP Morgan buy silver campaign. We got the price of silver from 15 bucks up to $50. What a legend. So we got it up to the old Hunt Brothers $50 level. And then the Fed of course came in and they changed the laws overnight to make it possible for these banks to have and carry much greater short positions on silver. So they printed up a lot of paper silver derivatives and they stopped the run on their bank and the price went back down to $15 or so. So we have seen that it is possible to force capitulation to the silver market, but at the end of the day, because of the ability to pull private keys, it is not like it is with Bitcoin. I don't think it'll ever succeed. Whereas with Bitcoin, you can pull your private keys. So there you have it. Very powerful words coming from Max Kaiser. And that's 100 % accurate. And why I don't trust the precious metals myself. Now, if Bitcoin and cryptocurrency didn't exist, I'd be all in on gold and silver because what other option would there be? But because there is Bitcoin, there is no second best as Michael Saylor once said, like real talk. Am I going to trust my life savings in gold when the powers that be can just manipulate it on a whim? In fact, they have been caught doing so, so many times. How many times has JP Morgan had to pay billion dollar or hundreds of millions of dollars in fines for being caught manipulating the precious metal market? I think that will continue. Now, Bitcoin is the only incorruptible money, hence why it is perfect money. There is a finite limited supply. And I mean, there's no greater alternative. There is no second best quoting the great Michael Saylor. And don't forget to check out crypto news alerts .net for the full premium experience with video and to participate in the live Q &A.

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

So if you want the full premium experience with video, visit my rumble channel at cryptonewsalerts .net. Again, that's cryptonewsalerts .net. And welcome everyone just joining us. This is pod episode number 1 ,367. I'm your fearless host JV. Let's kick off today's show with our market watch. As you can see here in the screen, Bitcoin currently correcting, but barely. We're trading above 29 ,400. Also ETH maintaining a $1 ,800 support as well. And checking out coinmarketcap .com. The current crypto market cap sits at 1 .17 trillion with about 27 billion in volume in the past 24 hours with the Bitcoin dominance at 48 .8 % and the Ether dominance at 18 .9%. And checking out the top 100 crypto gainers for the past 24 hours, XDC leading the pack up 12%, trading at 7 cents, followed by Rocketpool up 6 % trading above 28 bucks, followed by ThorChain up roughly 6 % trading just above a dollar. And checking out the top 100 crypto gainers for the past week. We also have XDC and let's see, RPL and SHIB lead in the pack and checking out the crypto greed and fear index. We're currently rated at 53, which is neutral. Yesterday was a 50, last week a 52 and last month a 57 in greed. So there you have it. Now let's dive into today's Bitcoin technical analysis and check out the charts and what is popping with the King crypto. And let me know in the comments how many of you took advantage of the recent dip sub 30 ,000. Holla at your boy in the comments and at the end of the show, I'll be reading everyone's comments out loud. So here we go. Bitcoin hovered near 29 .5 on August 10th as the markets brace for fresh US CPI print. As we can see here in the Bitcoin one hour candle chart, we have data from Coin Telegraph as well as from Trading View showing Bitcoin price stabilizing in the run up to the CPI release itself, which is a classic volatility catalyst. CPI is one of the key elements of the Fed when deciding interest rate policy. Last month's June readout was the lowest in two years with expectations broadly pointing to another drop for July quoting analysts van de Poppe, 3 .3 % are the expectations, but we are going to get it. And what will the markets do? Great question. Now JP Morgan Chase was among those warnings for a reacceleration into CPI values, quoting them here. The major uncertainty concerns two issues that were previously seen as unlikely to undermine the July numbers, which is the direct and indirect price pass -throughs of the recent increase in energy and food prices and the relative stubbornness of service inflation. Now with CPI today, I think Bitcoin and crypto are going to give us some fun and games, but ultimately I am slightly biased to more downside quoting this analyst Mark Cullen with Bitcoin reentering the range and failing to hold 29 .5 yesterday. If it can't immediately get back above and hold, I will compound my short. So there you have it. Nonetheless, market expectations regarding the rate hikes themselves favored a pause for the next FOMC meeting, which is scheduled next month for September. And according to the CME groups FedWatch tool, the odds of that pause were above 85 % at the time of this article being published and monitoring resource material indicators presented liquidity conditions on the Binance order book. These revealed the potential for snap downside thanks to a lack of bids support immediately below the current spot price, quoting him here, not speculating on what the CPI and job reports are going to look like in the morning at 8 .30 Eastern. We know those numbers will impact the soft landing narrative and the September Fed rate hike decision. What matters between now and then is where the liquidity is stacked and where it is thin. He also says that the price can move quickly through the dark illiquid zones because there is little or no friction, but to the contrary, the more liquidity there is around the buy -sell walls, the more insulated those levels are as outlined here in this chart. Let me know if you agree or disagree with the crypto analysts. Now, how many of you watched the Joe Rogan podcast? As you know, it is the most viewed or watched or listened or streamed podcast in the world, which we all know. He recently had a guest on Post Malone and he was bashing CBDCs, which I'm proud to hear him discussing. So let's break this down next. As we all know, central bank digital currencies are the destruction and enslavement to mankind, to say the least, so good stuff. Podcaster Joe Rogan blasted the idea of the US central bank digital currency, describing a digital dollar as a game over scenario for American citizens in the August 8th episode. He went on to share with Post Malone that no F in way, no way. That's what I think. I think that's checkmate. That is game over. Rogan spelled out the scenario where the tyrannical government could tie the flow of CBDCs to one social credit score, saying that citizens could easily be cut off for their finances for breaking the rules, quoting him here from the show. If they decide somehow or another that you need some social credit score system and it's for the benefit of society, and they outlined that, they can track your behavior and your tweets and all of your things. They just decided you effed up and the rules are the rules, he said. And to watch this clip coming directly from Joe, I'll include this in the show notes below the video in the description for you to reference and check it out. Now Post Malone also mentioned his concerns with the banking system in the US, noting that the FDIC insurance only covers bank account values of up to a quarter million dollars. The pair also discussed the controversial decision by the Canadian government to freeze the bank accounts associated with the Freedom Convoy truckers in February of last year. So very good conversations. Malone argued that the US government has far too much control over the flow of everyday people's finances and that they could potentially cut off funding to anyone at a moment's notice. It echoes similar sentiments from avid supporters of decentralized cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin, which we preach each and every day, seven days a week here. You know what I mean? Now meanwhile, discussions around CBDCs have become a talking point in the US. In July, Republican presidential candidate and Florida governor DeSantis swore to ban CBDCs in the US if elected president. And on the other side of the fence, we had Democrat candidate Kennedy Jr. criticizing CBDCs for being instruments of control and instead promised to back the US dollar with hard assets, including Bitcoin, if he were elected president. So there you have it. What are your thoughts surrounding this warning coming directly from the biggest podcaster in the world on CBDCs? Let me know your thoughts in the comments right down below. And keep in mind that Bitcoin is the antidote. Now, Max Keiser says, I orange -pilled Tucker Carlson, so I could also orange -pill Joe Rogan. I say, let's make it happen. How many of you would love to see Max Keiser be featured on the Joe Rogan podcast, orange -pilling him and the rest of the world? Let us know in the comments. And maybe if we get a lot of feedback, we can make it happen. I hope so. I'm a huge fan of Max, shout out to Max and Stacey Herbert. And with that being shared, fam, now let's discuss the potential of many spot Bitcoin ETFs being approved simultaneously in the US. According to ARK Invest's Cathy Wood, we all know that BlackRock, they launched their application for the spot ETF, and then like a dozen of others did the same thing. And this could be like a domino effect. This is good. We call this Bitcoin game theory here in the crypto sphere. So let's break this down. And how many of you would be looking forward to a spot Bitcoin ETF? Let me know. Now, the US SEC is likely to approve several spot Bitcoin ETFs, and quick succession triggered the next move to a higher, the world's largest digital currency, crypto service provider Matrixport said. In a report on Thursday, the ETF providers would spend considerable marketing expenses to draw on retail and institutional capital. Now Matrixport noted that at its peak, the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust, we know as GBTC, managed $43 .5 billion in assets and generated annual management fees of 870 million. That's no joke. The SEC will respond to the Grayscale GBTC lawsuit filing, as well as ARK21 shares Bitcoin ETF refiling next week. The regulator is expected to respond to seven other Bitcoin ETF filings during the first week of September. Let's go, quitting them here. A physical Bitcoin ETF will carry a management fee of 0 .071%, which could still bring in 200 million per annual for those ETF providers with marketing expenses front loaded The note also said that any SEC spot ETF approval could have a material positive impact on the Bitcoin price and investors should have enough upside exposure on any day that the regulator is scheduled to respond to the ETF apps. So keep that in mind. Now, if the SEC needs more time to assess the practibility and surveillance sharing agreements, then the price may correct initially in mid September. And this is the dip to buy, the report added. So there you have it. We all know there's literally trillions upon trillions of dollars currently sitting on the sidelines that could immediately move into the King crypto. Once that approval, it is game on. And as I shared in yesterday's episode on the pod, we talked about Novogratz predicts that the spot Bitcoin ETF will likely get approved by the SEC within the next four to six months, which means it will front run the Bitcoin having scheduled in less than nine months, which is gonna be sometime in April of 2024. If that gets you excited, let me know and drop a comment right down below. And with that being shared fam, now let's discuss our next story of the day. And that's a huge bull market. Who's not excited about that? So yeah, according to InVest Answers, one of my favorite podcast hosts, the analyst says that catalysts for the next massive bull run include top US crypto giant Coinbase's newly launched base and Ethereum layer two scaling solution, as well as PayPal's new stable coin, which is PayPal USD. Quoting InVest Answers here, you got the combination of base from Coinbase, TradeFi, and you could argue centralized exchange, and you got the PayPal stuff happening, deploying on Ethereum. Things are really getting exciting, ladies and gentlemen. This could be the most incredible bull market ever. Also like to throw out there that Charlie Schrem, as I shared in two episodes ago, he is predicting that this PayPal stable coins can send the Bitcoin price action to literally a quarter million dollars per coin, a lot faster than anticipated. If you agree with Charlie Schrem, also let me know your thoughts in the comments below. Now, InVest Answers also says that Solana just hit a golden cross a couple of days ago and shot up 10%. In fact, it's up probably another big percentage today. And what's going on with Solana thing? I think it's up another 7 % today. It shot up to a dollar 50, but the golden cross do matter. You don't want to get into a short position after a golden cross because 60 to 80 % of the time, the price goes down after a golden cross. And that's when the 50 day moving average crosses through the 200 day moving average. And to watch this video analysis called Blockchain Domination by InVest Answers, check the show notes below the video in the description. Now let's break down our next story of the day coming from Credible Crypto and his prediction of $100 ,000 Bitcoin price can come a lot sooner than anticipated. We're talking about before the end of this year. And again, what is that? Four more months left or so for 2023. So let's break this down and then we'll be discussing in great detail what happened between me and YouTube, with me getting my channel permanently terminated for 10 days and then being reinstated as well as the ongoing attack against crypto content creators, especially on YouTube. But I got to give YouTube kudos at the end of the day because they did reinstate my channel. So I want to be very clear, but I wasn't anticipating or expecting it because I looked at this as a matrix attack and I will be explaining why I had this thought and on everything that transpired over the past 10 days regarding my termination and reinstation, if that's even a word. But anyways, fam, now let's discuss this $100 ,000 price prediction from crypto analyst, Credible Crypto. So here's some of the tweets he shared that got my attention. Tweet number one, 100 ,000 plus is what I'm expecting for the end of the move that breaks the prior all -time high. It will come a few months after we break the all -time high. If we break all -time high this year, that can mean $100 ,000 plus this year or by early next. But he also clarifies here when someone asks, looks good on the track here. Are we aiming for 50 ,000 plus this year? And then he clarifies, 70 ,000 plus this year in case I wasn't clear before. So there you have it. And he also says, we've got the strength in our green zone held around the 29 ,000 price level. That may very well have been our bottom. And that being said, this move up so far still looks corrective and we have a sharp rejection on the lower timeframes. So do not be surprised if we chop around for a bit longer before the mega move up starts. Don't lose sight of the big picture here and don't flip bearish if we move down a bit from here. Either anything above $25 ,000 is a gift. Let me know if you agree or disagree with the analyst. And after rallying past the November 2021 all -time high of slightly above 69 ,000, the synonymous analyst expects Bitcoin to meet the first resistance at a price of over $100 ,000 as I outlined from him in that tweet. So there you have it. Let me know if you agree or disagree with that bullish price prediction of $100 ,000 plus. And now for the moment you have all been waiting for. Welcome to everyone just joining us. It's good to see we are strong and solid on the different networks. I'm just refreshing my screen to make sure the stream is still good over on Rumble. We are, we still got 65 people watching live on Rumble and we have almost 200 people watching live on YouTube. That's what's up and shout out to everyone. I appreciate the continued support. It means the world to me. And if it wasn't for you guys, I guarantee you I probably would have never received my YouTube channel back but it's because of the uproar everyone in the community made. That's why I believe I was granted to have my YouTube channel back. Here's what I am talking about. Let me break this down for you right here. So as you can see, a shout out to the Bitcoin therapist. He put, Bitcoin content creators are being banned from YouTube. Here's everything you need to know. In fact, I am the author of this. He reached out to me the other day and I put together this thread which he published officially today, roughly about an hour ago. It's already getting a lot of views and a lot of traction, 19 reposts. So be sure to also repost and spread the word. So here's the turn of events. I'm gonna read it all for you. It's very important. On July 31st, 2023, YouTube terminated my Crypto News Alerts channel which consisted of roughly 1800 videos and six years of content under false pretenses for alleged repeated violations of harmful and dangerous policy which is categorically false. Then after I read the horrific email from YouTube with the subject line that said, Crypto News Alerts, we removed your channel from YouTube, I immediately went to X, formerly known as Twitter, and tagged Team YouTube in a post asking for help. They responded, first step is to fill out the appeal form and that, once the policy team takes a look, you'll get an email outlining their decision so keep an eye on your inbox. So I immediately filled out the appeal form explaining the situation and a few hours later, Team YouTube announced their final decision to my appeal policy in a post on X which read the following. Let me read this to you. Update, our policy team confirmed the termination was correct. You can read through this article for more info on harmful and dangerous content policy that led to our decision. However, ironically still to this day, Team YouTube never sent me the email response to my appeal outlining their decision as they initially said they would. Even after several requests and reminders, I tagged them in as outlined here and instead, Team YouTube announced their final decision on a public forum, X literally harming and damaging my reputation, my brand, my content and my business by slandering my content, claiming falsehoods about my videos which are severely misleading and outrageously false. What gets even more scary is the fact Team YouTube has been attacking other Bitcoin content creators as well. For example, Plamen, who is the voice of Bitcoin in Bulgaria and had the same situation occurred and suffered the same fate as he shares here. I had the same situation, his channel of three years and 23 ,500 subscribers was terminated with no strikes, no warnings. He just woke up to his channel being deleted which really, really sucks. Now also note that the Kaiser report was also disgracefully purged from YouTube which still to this day is the greatest financial news show to ever exist and credited with the very first international TV mention of Bitcoin back in 2011, Max Kaiser literally called Bitcoin the biggest story of the decade, quoting Max right here. YouTube took down 900 hours, 13 years of work including the first extensive multi -year international coverage of Bitcoin of the Kaiser report because we reported on some inconvenient truths and deep rooted corruption about the US economy and banking system and the Bitcoin community is obviously fed up and outraged by the pathetic actions of YouTube unjustly terminating Bitcoin content creators off of their platform under false pretenses as outlined here, you can see people are saying this is a total disgrace, what in the world is going on? In fact, the Bitcoin archive, shout out to him with over 1 .2 million followers on X made a post about the recent YouTube termination purges on the three Bitcoin channels referenced in this thread with no plausible explanation given. The post has already gotten over a half a million views, 2 ,400 likes and probably now closer to a thousand reposts as outlined here and on August 4th, 2023, Robert Kennedy Jr. who is also pro Bitcoin and anti -CVDC as well as the first presidential candidate to accept Bitcoin donations made a post on X announcing, I am suing Google for censoring me on YouTube, hashtag Kennedy 2024 which you can see here on your screen. Now, interesting fact to note, my Crypto News Alert channel first achieved 50 ,000 subs all the way back in 2021 which was two years and 700 plus episodes later now, my channel still only had 56 ,000 subs at the time of termination on July 31st, 2023 which means I was most likely shadow bands ever since then. Viewers of the show would often let me know they stopped receiving notifications about my show even though they were subbed with all their notifications turned on. Unfortunately, I did not have any of my YouTube videos backed up on Rumble so roughly 1 ,800 videos which took me six years and over 10 ,000 hours to create were lost and gone forever. However, I am grateful I still have all the audio versions of my podcast still up on iTunes and Spotify and everywhere you can podcast. In fact, I just signed a new 12 month contract with Spotify slash megaphone days after being permanently terminated from YouTube. If my podcast was in any way harmful or dangerous as YouTube falsely claims, then I wouldn't be on all of these platforms. That's something to think about. Then the following day after being wrongfully terminated by YouTube, I started broadcasting my daily live stream on Rumble because I already knew this was a matrix attack which it all honestly feels like more so than anything else. It appears that YouTube clearly maliciously is attacking Bitcoin content creators who are speaking out about the truth and exposing the fiat money corruption YouTube and their parent company, Google, like all technocracies have certain agendas. But here's for the new update. As of like an hour ago, I got this email. I wasn't expecting it. I am in shock after having my YouTube channel permanently deleted under false pretenses and being suspended off the YouTube platform for life. I just received this email hours ago stating the following. We are pleased to let you know that we have recently reviewed your YouTube account and after taking another look, we can confirm that it is not in violation of our terms of service. We have lifted the suspension of your account and it is once again active and operational. So there you have it. Holla fricking Luya. I can't believe it. I wasn't anticipating it. I honestly believe if we didn't have the pushback from the community, you know what I mean? Nothing would have changed. They already said they reviewed my account after my appeal and they made the right decision, which they announced on X and now 10 days later, they're saying they made a mistake. So I am grateful for YouTube reinstoring my account, but the trust factor is lost. So what did I do? I immediately synced my Rumble account, which is my new video hosting platform to my YouTube account. And I'd suggest everyone do the same if you're a YouTube content creator, because you may suffer the same fate. And if you have it backed up, boom. You know what I mean? No damage done. You can start streaming on another platform. If you lose everything, it's like starting over from scratch, which I thought I would have to do because I lost 56 ,000 subs, which took me six years to curate, literally overnight. So that's the story of the YouTube termination and being reinstated as of today on August 10th. What are your thoughts surrounding all of this? Do you think YouTube will continue to censor Bitcoiners like myself? Or do you think now that we have pushed back that they're less likely to do so?

A highlight from 1366: BlackRock Insiders Say Bitcoin ETF Likely 6 Months Away
"In today's episode, I'm gonna be breaking down the latest technical analysis, as well as Bitstamp delists many altcoins, specifically for US customers. We'll also be discussing Bitcoin isn't going away, says $385 billion Wall Street giant, the Carlyle Group. That's right. We'll also be discussing Quant Analyst Plan B, creator of the Bitcoin stock to flow model, says history is suggesting a two year long Bitcoin rally approaching after critical indicator turns bullish. Send it. We'll also be discussing BlackRock, the world's largest asset manager. Their insiders say the Bitcoin ETF is likely only six months away. I'll be breaking this down for you. As well as BlackRock and Coinbase deal can trigger a Bitcoin burst to $773 ,000 per coin, according to Invest Answers. We'll also be taking a look at the overall crypto market. All this plus so much more in today's show. Yo, what's good crypto fam? This is first and foremost, a video show. So if you want the full premium experience with video, visit my rumble channel at cryptonewsalerts .net. Again, that's crypto news alerts .net. And welcome everyone just tuning in. This is pod episode number 1366. And on X, this is live stream number three on rumble. Maybe we're up to live stream number nine. It's hard to keep count. I'm your fearless leader, JV. And today is August 9th, 2023. Let's kick off today's show with our market watch. You should be able to see on your screen. We've got Bitcoin currently correcting down 1 .6%. Yesterday we recaptured 30 ,000, but unfortunately it was short -lived and we dropped right back down to currently where we sit at 29 ,400. As you can see Ether also correcting down a half a percent, trading at $1 ,850. XRP, one of the few alts actually in the green right now. And checking out coinmarketcap .com, the current crypto market cap sits at 1 .17 trillion with about 38 billion in volume in the past 24 hours. The Bitcoin dominance is 48 .7 % with the Ether dominance at 18 .9%. And checking out the top 100 crypto gainers in the past 24 hours, Aptos leading the pack up almost 11%, trading at $7 .45, followed by Chainlink up almost 4%, trading at $7 .66, followed by XRP up about 3%, trading just above 65 cents. And checking out the top 100 crypto gainers for the past week, you can see a mix between a sea of green and red. Some of the biggest losers include OPMNT and PLS with the top gainer being Aptos up 11%. And checking out the crypto greed and fear index, we're currently rated a 50, which is neutral. Yesterday was a 54 and last week a 53 neutral and last month a 56 in greed. So there you have it. How many of you currently bullish on the King Crypto? Let me know in the comments right down below. And now let's break down today's technical analysis. Check out the charts and what is popping with the King Crypto BTC. Bitcoin consolidated at a key flip zone August 9th as Bitcoin price strength staged a sudden return, which you can clearly see here in the Bitcoin one hour candle chart. Data from Cointelegraph and TradingView showed Bitcoin trading near 29 .8 after a surge during the previous day's Wall Street trading hours. That followed a recovery from the local lows under 28 .7 and topped out only after a trip to 30 ,200, which was yesterday. Bitcoin's highest August price thus far. The rapid change in moods soon impacted market participants' expectations for the market. Quoting analysts here, that indeed was the higher low. Bitcoin continues to maintain a bullish market structure, said popular trader Jelly. He also said it needs to break 32 ,000 from here. Let's see if this bounce has any legs. And he makes a good point. I think once we break 32 personally, there's not much resistance between there and 40 ,000. And he shows us a bullish outline where the level to break so we can continue marching forward. Jelly additionally noted that on the one day timeframe, Bitcoin completed a bullish cross on the Moving Average Convergence Divergence indicator, quoting him again. Another item we can add to the list of bullish signals, he commented. And the day prior, crypto analyst Michal Venday Pop stressed the significance of 29 ,700 as he shared here. Bitcoin party starts when we break 29 ,700. Until then, it is just consolidation. Part of the day's analysis argued when Venday Pop subsequently added that Bitcoin was close to doing so. And quoting Rec Capital, Bitcoin is pressing beyond the 29 ,250 level, which is positive. But historically, we have seen upside wicking beyond this level to the 29 ,900 to 30 ,100 resistance area. He also says this time thus far, Bitcoin has upside wick to 32 ,000, 30 ,200 that is. Bearish is the rejection, is strong enough to push the price down to 29 ,250 and weekly close below there. However, if Bitcoin would be able to dip into 29 ,250 and hold it as support, that would be a more bullish price development. Now, let's discuss the whales getting active, analyzing the impetus for the higher spike. Observers soon noted increasing buying amongst various classes. A Bitcoin whales, as pointed out here by material indicators, fire chart shows the moment purple whales decided to convert a $20 million Bitcoin bid ladder into the market orders that started this rally yesterday, purple continued buying upwards of 50 million so far. And meanwhile, a brown mega whale just joined the party with a $2 million market buy order. And quoting SCU Analytics, shorts given up already. This bounce here on the low timeframe is driven by shorts closing out on coin margin and USDT margin over open interest down in perpetual delta CVD up, letting this low timeframe range balance out some more. And a SCU further noted whales require quite thick liquidity to exit or close positions. And most often this is during a squeeze event. Let me know if you agree or disagree with the analysts. Now I actually wanna share with you a tweet, which I shared on crypto Twitter, I believe just yesterday, which was getting a lot of buzz and traction regarding Max Kaiser and the recent censorship on YouTube against Bitcoin creators. I wrote the following, when I arrived to Twitter, September of 2019, I maybe only had a couple of thousand YouTube subs and my tweets got virtually zero engagement. Max Kaiser was the only influencer to retweet my content at the time, which provided me with a massive beacon of hope as he's always been hands down. My favorite Bitcoin content creator via the Kaiser report along with Stacy Herbert, the Kaiser report still to this day is the greatest financial news show to ever exist and credited with the very first international TV mention of Bitcoin back in 2011. Max literally called it the biggest story of the decade, quoting him here, this is the greatest achievement of the global insurrection against banker occupation. Bitcoin is the currency of the resistance. And he also said, YouTube took down 900 hours, 1800 episodes, 13 years of work, including the first extensive multi -year international coverage of Bitcoin via the Kaiser report because we've reported on some inconvenient truths and deep rooted corruption about the US economy and banking system. How many of you were fans of the Kaiser report and are missing the Kaiser report now that it has been scrubbed off of YouTube? Let me know in the comments right down below. And now what I wanna do is actually play for you an interesting soundbite, a rant that is classic of Max Kaiser and his rage against the bankers and central bankers, et cetera. This is classic Max Kaiser in his rarest form. So here we go. Wall Street is fraud, America is fraud, the world is fraud, banks are fraud, central banks are fraud, we live in an era of fraud. It's all based on fraud and they get a percentage of the fraud, that's the business model. To suggest that there is any moral or ethical aspect to anything that's going on now is to be completely naive about the fact that we live in an era dominated by financial terrorists. Terrorists, terrorists, jihadis of banking. They're here to kill you and themselves. They don't care because they're trained at madrasas called Princeton, Harvard, and Yale. They believe in an ideology, not the Koran, but Adam Smith, that they completely misread and interpret as something to justify their blowing themselves up. And the cost of terrorism is cheap. 9 -11 only costs $500 ,000. The ability to borrow money and take over a company by Warren Buffet is zero. He's borrowing money at zero. He's taking all those jobs away. He's creating economic destruction because they're fighting against terrorism. And that's the era that we live in today. Why are we gonna stop it? There's only one way to stop it. Race interest rates right now. Make the cost of terrorism too high. Do it today. If you don't, you're a fucking terrorist. Jada Yale is a terrorist. Mario Draghi is a terrorist. The Central Bank of Japan is a terrorist. These are the real terrorists, not the immigrants, not the people dying in the water. Hey. Hey. Hey. So yeah, massive shout out to Max Kaiser. He is the man, has been doing his thing for over a decade, warning people about the fiat corruption in our society. So you gotta give massive respect where respect is due. And with that being shared, now let's dive into our next story of the day and discuss Bitstamp, which is a crypto exchange delisting several altcoins, which is pretty interesting. Obviously for them to do that, they must be getting some pressure from regulators such as the SEC. So let's discuss which cryptos were just recently delisted off of Bitstamp and curious, how many of you have ever used this crypto exchange before? Do let me know. So here we go. Bitstamp says the decision comes as part of the continuous elevation of its crypto offerings taken into account the changing regulatory environment of the US. New orders for the seven cryptos to be disabled on August 29th and existing orders will be canceled according to the exchange. And it's interesting, will other exchanges do the same thing is the big question. However, US customers will be able to hold the asset in their Bitstamp accounts and withdraw them at any time. The exchange recommended users execute any desired buy or sell orders for the affected assets before the August 29th deadline, meaning you got 20 more days fam. So be quick about it. To ensure a smooth transition during the trading halt and after that date trading related to AXS, Chili's, Mana, Matic, NEAR, SAND and Solana will be permanently disabled for US customers on Bitstamp. So despite delisting those assets for US customers, Bitstamp noted it would continue offering up to 30 available cryptos to trade on its platform. The exchange said it remains committed to providing a comprehensive range of trading options even with the halt for US users. Now Bitstamp is not the first major crypto to platform to the list assets due to regulatory environment of the US. Earlier in the year trading platforms like eToro, Robinhood and Bakkt also remove support for certain cryptos. The harsh regulatory climate has led many exchanges to limit their offerings in order to comply with American rules and avoid potential legal issues. So there you have it, as the crypto crackdown as they entitled Crypto Choke Point 2 .0 continues. So yeah, you guys let me know. At the end of the show, I'll be reading everyone's comments out loud in our live and interactive Q &A session, which we do each and every day. Now for some big news coming from the Carlyle Group. I'm sure you have heard of them before. As you can see here, they share that Bitcoin isn't going away, says $385 billion Wall Street giant, the Carlyle Group, and you should be able to see my screen now. You can see here the chairman says the mighty BlackRock is willing to have a Bitcoin ETF. So maybe Bitcoin is going to be around a while longer. And I actually wanna play this clip for you here today. You should be able to see my screen. Let me grab this sound bite and you can hear it first and foremost coming directly from the Carlyle Group themselves. Here we go. This is perfectly timed because Novogratz has been the pinata of Bitcoin when it goes down. It's been the genius of Bitcoin when it goes up. And all of a sudden, Larry showed up at the door to say, hey, big, respectable firms can prosecute and do Bitcoin. Link Lawrence Fink of BlackRock to Mike Novogratz. Well, what's happened is people, as you suggest, make fun of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, but now the establishment, Larry Fink at BlackRock, is now saying they're gonna have an ETF if approved by the government in Bitcoin. So you're saying, wait a second, the mighty BlackRock is willing to have an ETF in Bitcoin, maybe Bitcoin's gonna be around for a while. Lisa wants to jump in here, but I'm gonna cut to the news moment. Is Carlyle announcing this morning a Bitcoin advocacy? No, I don't think so. But there's no doubt that Bitcoin is something that I wish I had bought it at $100 a Bitcoin when Mike Novogratz started buying it. It's now at $29 ,000, so he's made a lot of money. And a lot of people who bought it at the $100 or less are feeling pretty good. Now, it went up as high as $61 ,000, I think, even down to $31 ,000 or even $29 ,000 now, it's still a pretty good profit if you bought it at $100. We all wish we would have bought it at $100. And to write it up, it's one thing for BlackRock to come up with an ETF because they believe the proposition of Bitcoin. It's another because they see a profitability proposition where they can basically take advantage of the interests other people have. I mean, isn't that more of what this is, that basically Wall Street is saying, if there is a market for it and we can viably make one for them and make some money, why not? Well, remember, Wall Street is in business to make money and this is something they can probably make money off. You have to remember, the United States government has been somewhat skeptical of it. I think Democrats in the Congress and particularly the people regulating the SEC are skeptical of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. And that is correct. His billionaire wishes he bought Bitcoin at $100. But outside the United States, there's a lot of interest in it. I think FTX really hurt when it went bankrupt and it hurt the crypto industry. But a lot of people around the world wanna be able to trade in a currency that their government can't know what they have and they wanna be able to move it around, rightly or wrongly. And so I don't think Bitcoin is going away. I think the Republicans on Capitol Hill have been pretty supportive of it. There's a difference between having a seamless cross -currency payment, basically saying that instead of going to Western Union, I can go and just transfer something in Bitcoin if it has a stable enough price. That's one proposition. But the proposition of Bitcoin as a store of value that could kind of be bid up the way that gold or silver could seems to have been parked with the advent of yield suddenly that you can get for actual money. I mean, isn't that sort of the feeling that you're getting? Well, there's no doubt that when interest rates are as high as they are, you don't need to have gold or other kinds of things to get you some solid return because when you get 5 % on treasuries, but eventually 5 % will be coming down at some point. I don't think Bitcoin or cryptocurrencies that are the better ones, the better known ones, Bitcoin and a number of others are gonna go away. There's enormous interest around the world in being able to have something you can transfer without the government knowing about it and keep it private. And you can say people shouldn't do that, but that's not gonna stop people from doing it. Mr. Novogratz and Mr. Gensler, what did you say about the efforts of our chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission? Gary Gensler, who's the chairman of the SEC is not a big fan of cryptocurrency, I think that's fair to say, but he lost a major case recently in court where he was trying to argue that one of the cryptocurrencies ripple was a security and he lost that case. So I think the SEC has not been able to convince these the government yet, or at least the courts that cryptocurrency is such a dangerous thing. And I remember a lot of people in the government now are thinking that Gary Gensler won't be the chairman of the SEC forever. I mean, these guys just wait them out, right? I think that's a strategy that's very popular in Washington, waiting out regulators you don't like. There you have it, you heard it from him first, waiting out regulators they don't like, such as Gary Gensler. So for BlackRock and the Carlyle Group to be all bullish in and all in on Bitcoin is obviously a pretty fricking big deal. So that goes to tell you what's about to come here in the future. And in a bit, we're gonna be covering Novogratz specifically about talking Bitcoin ETF likely being approved within the next six months, which means before the Bitcoin halving, which is obviously a big deal and we're all anticipating that as well for fireworks coming after that halving. So with that being shared, now let's actually break down our next story of the day and discuss this potential two year long rally according to Plan B, creator of the Bitcoin, Stock the Flow Model, here we go. And shout out to Plan B by the way. Closely followed quant analyst says, the Bitcoin has crossed the key resistance level that historically kicks off multi -year rallies. Synonymous analyst tells us almost 2 million followers on X. The Bitcoin's five month realized price crossed the two year realized price, which is a pattern that previously marked the start of the bull market three times in the past, quitting him here. Five month realized price is now above the two year realized price. If history is any guide, it will stay above for the next two plus years. Interesting times ahead. Now the realized price metric measures the value of all of its tokens as the price they were bought divided by the number of tokens in circulation. So during the bull market, the crypto king's price tends to remain above all its realized prices according to Plan B. He predicts the Bitcoin will not revisit prices below the 30 ,000 level if the bull rally is underway. Quitting him here on crypto Twitter, not buying Bitcoin at less than 30 ,000 now is like, not buying Bitcoin at less than 10 ,000 in 2019 and 2020, and not buying Bitcoin at under $500 in 2015, 2016, and not buying Bitcoin at under $10 in 2011 and 2012, life is all about choices, preach. Now Plan B is also keeping a close eye on the RSI, a widely used momentum indicator that aims to determine if an asset is overbought or oversold. He says the indicator is setting the stage for a big rally similar to that of 2015 as outlined here, like clockwork, exact same spot as October, 2015. The analyst previously predicted the Bitcoin would hit $50 ,000 before the next halving event, which is expected to be in April of 2024. Let me know if you agree or disagree with Plan B. With that being shared, now for the latest regarding the BlackRock ETF potentially being approved by the SEC within the next six months as per Mike Novogratz. Let's break this down. Here we go. US's first spot Bitcoin ETF could be approved sometime before February, according to Galaxy Digital CEO, Novogratz, citing sources at BlackRock and Invesco. Quitting him here, it's a big deal. It's a big deal because both our contracts from the Invesco side and from the BlackRock side get you to think that this is a question of when, not if. That the outside window is probably six months. Novogratz told shareholders during the Galaxy August 8th quarter two earnings call where the digital asset company reported a $46 million net loss as shared here. This is probably six to four months or four to six months if you had to put a pin to tell him the donkey on it that the SEC is going to approve a Bitcoin ETF. Novogratz's Galaxy Digital is one of the many contenders for a spot Bitcoin ETF, which it reapplied for in June in conjunction with the 1 .5 trillion asset manager, Invesco, the fourth largest ETF issuer in the US. And as Eric Valchunes points out here, according to contracts from inside BlackRock and Invesco spot Bitcoin ETF approval is a matter of when, not if. Likely in four to six months, Galaxy CEO Novogratz on the earnings call this morning. So that's quoting Novogratz directly. And speaking of shareholders, Novogratz said he wouldn't have a comment on the expecting timing of the ETF approval, which is an unknown as it sits in the SEC. Now, however, he believes that once approved, the spot Bitcoin ETF issuers such as BlackRock and Invesco will be fighting tooth and nail for market share. As he outlines here, the news of both BlackRock filing the ETF and quite frankly Invesco plus Galaxy, we are going to fight like cats and dogs to win the market share there once it gets approved. And in response to a question, Galaxy Digital President Chris Ferraro added that he wouldn't be surprised if the SEC ends up approving a potential Bitcoin ETF to avoid being labeled an obstructionist because they have no choice, right? They've been denying the ETF in the US for over a decade, just FYI, quoting him here. I think that's where the potential ETF approval comes in saying, hey, you can't call us anti -crypto, we just approved an ETF. And so we are hoping that that's the same for our filing. Meanwhile, some analysts believe the wave of spot Bitcoin ETFs could come sooner than later, depending on how the judge rules in Grayscale's lawsuit against the SEC. As you know, Grayscale last year sued the SEC for rejecting its app to convert its Grayscale Bitcoin Trust GBTC product into a spot ETF. As Craig Salom shares here, if the SEC loses its case against Grayscale, as we expect, the path of least resistance would be a wave of simultaneous approvals for all spot Bitcoin ETF apps, including Grayscale and the other eight active filings. Let me know which ETF you feel is likely to be approved first by the regulators. Now, analysts believe that should the SEC lose its case against Grayscale, the path of least resistance would be simultaneous approvals for several or all spot Bitcoin ETF apps, which include ARK Invest, Cathie Wood and all the ones previously mentioned here in this article. What are your thoughts though? Let me know in the comments right down below. Now let's discuss a potential $773 ,000 Bitcoin price target based off the BlackRock ETF and their partnership with Coinbase. This was actually predicted, I believe, in the latter of last year before there was even all of the recent news of BlackRock refiling for their spot ETF application. And then we'll dive into our live Q &A as soon as we finish this final story. So here you go. Popular crypto analyst breaks down how the partnership between two financial giants can trigger Bitcoin explosion to $773 ,000 per coin. If you'd like to see that turn into fruition, let me know in the comments. Last week, US -based crypto titan Coinbase announced teaming up with BlackRock, as we know is the largest asset manager in the world. And here's what Invest's answer, shout out to him, told his audience, if BlackRock just put a half a percent of their assets under management into Bitcoin using my multiplier, which is 21X, that will impact the market cap by over a trillion dollars, which will add about $75 ,000 to the Bitcoin price, taking it to 98 ,000 and a return on investment from today's price of 326%. This is very, very achievable. Now, if they allocate, let's say 1%, which of course will take time to get to that level, that would be adding 2 .1 trillion to the market cap, $150 ,000 to the price. And that would take the future price of Bitcoin to 173 ,000 per coin, which is a 652 % gain from here. And if they add 5%, which is what Dan Tapiero says, I think it is way too aggressive, but maybe over time, maybe in the next three to five years, that would be possible. That could take the Bitcoin price to $773 ,000 and the next three to five years pretty easily. Now, the crypto strategist's analysis was inspired by comments from 10T Holdings CEO, Dan Tapiero, and according to the prominent macro investor, the deal between BlackRock and Coinbase could propel the Bitcoin price above 250 ,000, quoting him again, chart that got BlackRock excited about the partnership with Coinbase, quoting them here alongside this chart, no bigger a macro opportunity for BlackRock than acting to facilitate Bitcoin adoption. A 5 % shift in BlackRock assets is $500 billion, greater than the Bitcoin value today. So the catalyst for the path to 250 ,000 -plus post -Bitcoin halving is becoming clear. So there you have it. Let me know if you agree or disagree with this analysis. And don't forget to check out CryptoNewsAlerts .net for the full premium experience with video and to participate in the live Q &A.

The national average price of a gallon of regular gas is now $3 .83, and that's about 30 cents more than a month ago. CBS correspondent Chris Van Cleave looks at one of the factors that's driving prices higher. A 30 -cent spike by a month. That seems like a lot. It is, and usually there is then some sort of other circumstance. Like a hurricane. Like a hurricane or a war. Aixa Diaz from AAA. We're looking at several factors. Supply, demand, cost of oil, and then we have this wild card with extreme heat. In certain parts of the country, extreme temperatures, triple digits, will affect refineries because they don't want to work in such extreme heat. Many refineries are designed to operate between 32 and 95 degrees, but that heat dome parked over much of the country in June in July pushed temperatures into the triple digits for weeks, forcing some refineries to cut their output. And up went gas prices. Well it just seems they keep going up. We met Nell Sire filling up in Austin Texas. The more you pay for gas the less you have for groceries, the less you have for entertainment, the less you have for other things that you would like to do. And while tens of millions of Americans hit the road this summer, nearly 64 % said rising prices affected their 4th of July plans. AAA says with heat finally relenting in some parts of the country and demand down, price increases have slowed.

Thanks for being with us. To the invasion of Ukraine, more signs of Ukraine's willingness to turn the tables on Vladimir Putin and bring the war inside Russia. Moscow says a Ukrainian drone has hit the same building, the capital, that was attacked on Sunday. The repeated drone strikes underscore Moscow's vulnerability as Russia's war in Ukraine drags into Ukraine. It's 18 months. And joining us now to talk more about its WTOP national security correspondent, JJ Green. JJ, here we go for a second day in a row. Moscow has been hit by drones from Ukraine. What this does mean for the tempo and the targeting in this conflict? Sean and Anne, Muscovites and other Russians should probably get used to this. Ukraine was coy in the beginning about its involvement in drone attacks inside Moscow, and I think that had a lot to do with Western constraints on Ukraine and their concerns about how Moscow might retaliate beyond Ukraine for attacks inside Russia. But Ukraine's been stepping up to these latest attacks in downtown Moscow, and they've admitted they're behind them. Their president said yesterday, quote, gradually this war is returning to Russia, and these back -to -back drone strikes in central Moscow, as you mentioned, on the same building, no less, is evidence of that, and it's also a bit of a psychological jolt for Moscovites because they were told that essentially this couldn't happen, but it is. JJ, we know Russia's getting its drones from Iran, but where is Ukraine getting its drones? The Ukrainian government is working with more than 80 Ukraine -based drone manufacturers. The Ukraine's Minister of Defense, Alexei Reznikov, said the other day they need hundreds of thousands of drones to achieve their missions, and an increasingly important element of that mission is clearly the ability to launch these kinds of attacks inside Russia. Currently, the military operates dozens of domestic and foreign drones that fulfill a wide spectrum of roles, and they've used these drones for reconnaissance and attacks. The drones have allowed Ukraine to veil and harass Russian troops, and this is something they can't do using any other tool or weapon. So making they're a lot of them inside Ukraine, but they're also getting drones from Turkey and from the US, and I've been told as well they got a lot of them from China. JJ, we see day in and day out the civilian casualties in Ukraine. Sometimes we forget about the toll this war has taken. Remind us of how bad things have gotten on the Ukrainian people here in the last 18 months. Well, the United Nations said on Monday that through Sunday it had confirmed there were 9 ,369 civilians killed in Ukraine, another 16 ,600 injured, but it's believed that the actual numbers are considerably higher. Remember in Mikhalayev and other locations earlier in the war there were hundreds of people, in some cases thousands of people, that were trapped in the rubble of attacks and other atrocities that were never accounted for. And the Ukrainian government is saying today that there is a minimum of 23 ,000 people that are missing and that includes 7 ,000 service members. So that number of civilians killed in Ukraine is dramatically higher than what the official number is. Alright J .J., thanks so much. You're welcome. J .J.

Let's back get to Dave Dildine in the WTOP Traffic Center. And in Virginia, volume delays on the Beltway and 66 west started. We had a minor crash on the GW Parkway northbound north of 123. That's out of the way and both lanes open are in the PM pattern through the long -term work zone.

The burned work truck between 450 and 50 is either on the right shoulder or on the rollback. In either event the lanes are open with less to look at and visibility has improved somewhat now that the smoke has dissipated, not the wildfire smoke. All lanes remain open on the outer loop, 95 northbound slow Laurel toward Columbia. Before 32 had a work zone in the right lane. BW park weighs some slowdowns here and there between Greenbelt and Fort Meade. 50 at I -97 remaining slow but the crash eastbound near Parolex at 23 is clear. lanes The are open. More traffic advances toward the Bay Bridge where there is no two -way traffic right now and two lanes are open on the westbound span of the bridge but volumes have dropped back a little bit on 50 on Kent Island so think I they're discontinuing that reversible lane and maybe setting up to go back to two -way within the hour.

"Awesome what they needed. A many of those things were incorporated like walking paths and exercising community rams but one of the things people said to us was we need jobs and so we used our construction program to bill to bring people who had been previously incarcerated into the building trades as apprentices and then allowed them to get their apprenticeship training on that job eventually become full full-fledged journeyman electricity carpenters that go on and build careers in the construction field. Which is you know very lucrative so these are the type of things were able to do as an organization that's different than what other organizations are able to do so. It's a very special place to work as a result. So i wanna say it's all healthcare. Anyone in health care wants to be able to do this and this is not the ideas that we're talking about are not. They would love to do it. But everyone's trap outside of kaiser and a fee for service healthcare system where you're a little bit of tied to revenue comes in from production right doing procedures doing visits right and this no one pays you to do this other work and so in prepaid model like ours where we essentially finance our own care by selling her sheri- directly we get this monthly premium. And we can make decisions on. Where do we want to spend our dollars to have the greatest impact in people's lives from preventing illness to saving lives. It's so it's there's a freedom in that i think is the that people have because i'm sure if other healthcare systems have that freedom they would be out there doing the same so and that's why i say you know. Kaiser permanent is a really unique ecosystem and our members really benefit from our ability to think about the members. The other thing. I always say that it's not just up the patient in front of me and i take care of you and your well and you're gone. It's we're responsible for you for the rest of your life right so we are completely motivated to keep you healthy to figure out what's wrong to you know what you to get your screening and prevention done because we are going to be your healthcare provider for your whole life and hopefully the next generation. We have like three or four generations families that stay with us that were incredibly proud of to say that we've been a part of their lives truly truly different right. I mean that that's the touch that differentiates and jodi janet. Both of you provided some phenomenal examples of how kaiser is doing this. Let's hone in on outcomes so talk to us about you. Know maybe one or two things that you guys are really really proud about as far as outcomes. Well i'll tell you that we no matter. What survey regulatory body you know. Cms medicare five-star nc qa office. The patient advocate healthcare organizations. We always ray diversity diversity inc right. We're always like number one number. Two top ten top dessel and so over and over again you'll see same quality it's in affordability. It's in value at various satisfaction and interaction with us so our model really produces meaningful outcomes for our members and our patients and lately. What's been super exciting is that we have been been more. Transparent with ourselves about outcomes for patients clinical outcomes for patients by race ethnicity. We've always looked at it by disease or by age even gender but sitting down and saying okay. We're gonna look at our say hostile infection rates and we're going to look and see if there's any variation between infection rates between our white patients are black. Patients are latinas patients in if there's variation we need to ask ourselves what's going on here right so we're systematically looking at all of our measures and i will tell you that there are some unexplainable variation and we're beginning this journey of asking ourselves. What is the systemic bias unconscious bias. That's going on that. We don't understand that's happening or there's something in our rules and policies that are affecting you know how we ended up treating carrying placing diagnosing patients. And this is a very it takes courage to this work and were afford and we're really proud to be able to do this. Our goal is to be able to not only learn from our cells and take a look at our. What's happening on our system but to be able to publish some of our findings to share with the broader healthcare community. So it's been really very interesting to see it now. During the pandemic right this whole conversation became very transparent on social media and everywhere around what we were seeing with who is getting vaccinated. Who's not getting backs needed. Who is you know contracting. Cova dying from kovin who who is not right. You saw more people of color. Right people in disenfranchised communities being affected a disproportionately by code. That was really highlight of what happens every day in healthcare and so we want to continue to build on this conversation and sort of leveraged new interest by society and the public in general around what we need to do in healthcare. So it's more than just a provider side it's everybody it's all in around public health and private healthcare. Totally yeah janet. I think that's phenomenal example. And even you think about some of the work that's being done around pharma and the clinical trials right having those be a little bit more diverse in focus. I think you know you guys doing this. Having this type of focus will have those downstream impacts that i think many communities will benefit from so huge kudos to you and the organization for for having that focus. You know i feel and believe that one of the biggest ways that we learn through setbacks. If you had to point to any setbacks biggest setbacks you've had which one would you wanna chat about and a key learning that came out of it. I think maybe general immature. You would call it a setback for us. But maybe kind of setback for the country is is this issue of vaccine confidence and the fact that the vaccine rate is slowing down and one of the things that we recently did in. My group was a national study on really understanding. What people's perceptions were about the vaccine and what.

But chris of amusement like laying on his lips which just devilish side once she knew to be exciting so any autobiographical Stuff in there stayed not not not description but but cotton is basically my personality definitely is in cassiopeia is my wife elizabeth's personality so and there's actually when occasionally when they're kind of arguing with one another other at odds with another there's actual words that we have said between one another in there that only her and i would recognize And but from the description standpoint.

We know why cotton is called cotton that was explained in the book..

It was turned in january of two thousand and twenty so it was written a long time ago but it is almost as if i wrote it last week with the issues that are in there. What do you think.

There wasn't a lot of national what it didn't take like it did race storm in the capital but It must have been enough that you were saying out there to think this is a fame worth explore. It is and and it's particularly happening in europe and this book takes place in europe does not an american novel. It's it's take place in germany and the rise of nationalism across europe is happening as we speak and is growing every day. There's no there's no question about it. And it's becoming more more of an issue across the european continent here. It's rising as well and it blew over. You know in what happened recently It finally reached a boiling point year. So i wanted to explore the nationalistic rise in europe. In a way that was interesting and entertaining the reader. And i wanted to deal with something from world war two because i've never dealt with cotton malone in world war two much just a little bit a but not not like this book deals with it.

So the Seahawks back out Russell Wilson in the offense. Wilson, five of 12 104 Yards touchdown on the pick six. Wilson was harassed by this Rams defense in both regular season meetings.

Michael Kaiser on the tackle after a run in two and that'll bring up second down and eight with the ramps in a nice job on that play of gang tackling. Okay, A couple guys stopped Carson in a zoo.

Carson running right, finds a line across the 30 35 yard line, and he's out to about a 37. That'll be a first down. Stop running that time for Chris Carson. You talked about him earlier.

Men on the sideline, lowered his shoulder, picked up a couple extra yards and moves the chains like some backs, you know, he doesn't dance around ever. You know, he pops it outside. Then he hits the hole and hits it hard. And so you got to love that about how he runs, and now they got a good first down and a good struck to this. Dr. Gave a 10 out to the 38 yard line. 1st and 10 Seahawks break the huddle with three receivers left Metcalf single man out to the right. Wilson back in the shotgun.
