A highlight from 672:North Koreas Russian Crypto Strategy & Indias Dollar Rejection
"Why do tacos get their own day of the week? Is it because Mondays are so rough, we need a Tuesday filled with beefy tortillas shared with good friends? If so, why don't we have Wellington Wednesdays stroganoff Saturdays, and heck, beefball Mondays? Then Mondays would just be another reason to enjoy our favorite beef with our favorite people. Together, we bring more. Beef. It's what's for dinner. Funded by beef farmers and ranchers. Good evening, and welcome to the Crypto Overnighter. I'm Nick Ademus, and I will be your host as we take a look at the latest cryptocurrency news and analysis. So sit back, relax, and let's get started. And remember, none of this is financial advice. And it's 10pm Pacific on Sunday, September 17th, 2023. Welcome back to the Crypto Overnighter, where we have no sponsors, no hidden agendas, and no BS. But we do have the news, so let's talk about that. Tonight we're diving into North Korea's cozy relationship with Russian crypto exchanges. Are they laundering money, or is it something far more sinister? We'll also look at India's ambitious plans to cut the dollar out of its trade equation. What does this mean for the future of fiat, and how might it impact the crypto landscape? Then we'll discuss the Hong Kong Monetary Authority's stern warning to crypto firms misusing the term bank. And don't think we're ignoring the bankruptcy saga of FTX and their reopened claims portal. Last but not least, some big names weigh in on the future of fiat and crypto. Fasten your seatbelts, it's gonna be a ride. Hacking groups linked to North Korea are increasingly using Russian exchanges to launder stolen cryptocurrency. Chainalysis noted this shift in strategy. The blockchain analysis firm also highlighted a recent transfer of $21 .9 million stolen from the Harmony Protocol to a Russian exchange known for illicit transactions. This move coincides with the summit between Kim Jong Un and Vladimir Putin. UN sanctions monitors are also noting North Korea's evolving cyber tactics aimed at funding its nuclear programs. Elliptic, another analytics firm, reported that North Korea's Lazarus Group is responsible for the theft of almost $240 million in crypto in just 104 days. The group has been linked to five major crypto hacks in the last three months, including a $54 million hack of the global cryptocurrency exchange CoinX. Chainalysis data shows that the value of stolen cryptocurrency associated with North Korean hacking groups exceeds $340 .4 million so far in 2023, compared to $1 .65 billion last year. Despite the decrease, North Korea remains a significant threat in the cybercrime landscape, accounting for 29 .7 % of the cryptocurrency stolen through hacks in 2023. The DPRK -Russia cryptolink is more than just a financial loophole. It's a geopolitical chess move. While the world focuses on sanctions and arms talks, North Korea and Russia are quietly building a financial alliance in the crypto underworld. This isn't just about money. It's about power, influence, and a shared disdain for Western sanctions. Chainalysis and Elliptic aren't just telling us about hacks. They're exposing a growing alliance that could reshape the crypto landscape. Russia's noncompliance with international efforts gives North Korea the perfect cover to continue its operations. It's a symbiotic relationship where both nations benefit at the expense of global financial security. The drop in the value of stolen assets this year could be a smokescreen. North Korea's share of crypto hacks may have decreased, but let's not forget they still account for nearly a third of all stolen crypto this year. In a world increasingly dependent on digital assets, the DPRK -Russia cryptolink is not just a financial concern, it's a security crisis. It's a glaring example of how decentralized finance can be weaponized. As long as Russia turns a blind eye, the crypto world will remain a battlefield where the DPRK can operate with impunity. We've just unraveled the shadowy links between North Korea and Russian crypto exchanges. From one geopolitical chessboard to another, let's pivot to India's audacious move to cut the U .S. dollar from its trade equations. How's that for a change in global power dynamics?

The Axis of Evil Is Getting a Facelift and It Should Worry Us All
"A dangerous world, America. We've got to be standing back to back and not in each other's face. If you have not followed Kim Jong Un's visit to Russia, you ought to have. And they, the axis of evil is getting a facelift. Putin needs ammunition from whatever Korea makes, North Korea makes. And those two guys are about the evilest people in the world. I mean, there are other evil people in the world, but they're, they're the tie. They win the tie. And we've just got to realize, and if something drives it home, it's yesterday's attack by Ukraine on Sevastopol Navy base for the Russian Navy. Now, Sevastopol belongs to Ukraine. It was seized by Russia in 2014, when President Obama did nothing. And it's long been Russia's Black Sea port. And yesterday, Ukraine used some long -range missiles and some drones to blow up a submarine or another ship in dry dock. And it's one of Russia's diesel subs. It's a big deal. And what it ought to drive home is that we are seeing a glimpse of what the next war is going to look like. It's not going to be the invasion of Afghanistan. It's not going to be the invasion of Iraq. It's what's going on in Ukraine, which is from out of nowhere comes a missile. That's the future. And it's a very dangerous world. And the bad guys are getting worse. And the good guys cannot get it together. And Americans are divided. They'd much rather be in each other's faces than have each other's back. Very unfortunate.

Five Americans being held in Iran are one step closer to freedom today. The White issuing House is a blanket waiver for international banks to transfer six billion dollars in frozen Iranian money to Qatar without fear of American sanctions. The waiver means that European, Middle Eastern, and Asian banks will not run afoul of U .S. sanctions in converting the frozen money in South Korea and transferring it to Qatar's central bank. It will be held there for Iran to use for the purchase of humanitarian goods. At least that's what Iran says. Meantime, Iran is also identifying five prisoners it once freed in the U .S. The moves by Tehran and Washington appear to signal the prisoner swap is progressing. 547, hey is this you staying late every up night? Turns out that could bring some serious health risks.

North Korea fired more cruise missiles into coastal waters today. The South Korean military reported the latest launches followed renewed threats from Kim Jong Un. The North Korean military launched a pair of ballistic missiles earlier in the week simulating what it called a nuclear attack targeting South Korean command centers.

North Korea spy satellite launch fails as rocket falls into the sea
"North Korea fails to launch its first spy satellite into space. In parts of South Korea and Japan, residents took shelter after North Korea launched a rocket, which later crashed into the sea. Admitting failure is a setback to leader Kim Jong-un's push to boost military capability amid tension with the U.S. and South Korea, but North Korea is now promising to look into what went wrong and try a second launch soon. Any North Korean satellite launch is a violation of UN Security Council resolutions that ban the country from launches that use ballistic technology. I'm Mimi Montgomery
Kim says North Korea's 1st spy satellite is ready for launch

Not when I wanted to talk about the modern day slavery that was happening in China, not the horrors of communism and starvation. So I thought that was very unbelievable. They say we serve the public. We are informed the public about the truth and global affairs. But the only thing they want to inform the public was that how Trump was not a good leader. So I kind of got some clue, but I certainly did not know how manipulative and how they would like this North Korean state television. They were lying to the public like that. And then I got to meet these people of the record gatherings Nancy Pelosi. I mean, she talks about how she stands for the women. Hillary Clinton, how she cares about women's rights.

"What do you think about the possibility of nuclear war? I feel like we had this question a month ago. I'm a begin it. Well, I think most people know that because we're living in crazy times, anything is possible. And I think that, first of all, if you think of Kim Jong-un in North Korea, that guy is a straight up madman, he is allied with China, I don't even think you need to think about Putin, Putin is enough of a malefactor that I don't think he would hesitate. I don't know. One thing I do know, I put my trust in God. I think that we're not supposed to live in fear, first of all, I'm not afraid of death because I believe that Jesus defeated death on the cross. And that by faith in him, we never die. I actually believe that's true. And so I think we should never be scripture says be anxious for nothing. So realistically, these things are possible. We don't know what the future holds. Our job is to do our job, to praise God, to obey him, to live heroically, bravely, freely, and what happens is not up to us. We're just to do our job.

You're the guy on defense appropriations and pretty much the full committee will accept what you come forward with. Are you going to remedy the gap? I mean, we have a huge navy gap, a huge navy gap with China. Are you going to help remedy it? Oh, absolutely. I met with the CNO yesterday at McGill day.

I'm Dan schwarzman that your Bloomberg news in sports update, Brian. All right, Dan, thanks very much. Well, Disney CEO bob Iger has announced plans for a dramatic restructuring of the company. Disney will, among other things, cut 7000 jobs, is trying to attain 5 and a half $1 billion in cost savings. Joining us now to discuss this is geetha ranganathan, Bloomberg intelligence analyst on U.S. media. So this restructuring, it's the third under Iger, and I guess the previous two were pretty successful. Adding the Star Wars and marvel franchises, that was a big one. And then developing the online business, what's key about this restructuring detail? Yeah, I think what is really key about this time around in the new transformation is all about profits. It's very, very clear. The first one, when they were acquiring the marble, the Star Wars, the Pixar, that was really about growing the content engine, right? Really kind of empowering all those different content brands. The second one was about building the streaming business, but mainly a focus to getting subscribers. And this one is really all about streaming profits and overall business profits. So obviously bob Iger had a clear mandate to set the strategic strategic direction for improved profitability and I think he did just that. He did. Obviously, markets like this, what are other people what are the analysts making a bit so, you know, of course, here is the thing. So the goalposts in this streaming business have been moving and they've been moving pretty dramatically over the past year or so ever since we had that meltdown from Netflix. But Netflix itself has kind of now really showed us how streaming can be a free cash flow generative business, how it can generate a significant profits. And so I think in that regard has kind of provided a template for investors as well as for Disney, to kind of come out with a solid plan to deliver results. And so I think generally investors are obviously very happy because there is a clear plan now to get to profitability to get to sustainable profitability. They've identified about 5 and a half $1 billion in annualized costs that they're going to be taking out of the business, both in the content side as well as on the non content side. And just the overall structuring or restructuring rather does make a lot of sense. You do have the parks business, which is of course firing on all cylinders. You have the entertainment business, which of course has streaming where profitability is a little bit of a concern, but shouldn't be over the next few quarters. And also which has the studio business, which is again firing on all cylinders, we just saw avatar, cross the 2.2 billion mark. And then you have ESPN, which is a somewhat troubled asset. So kind of just separating out all of those, I think, really helps management and helps kind of investors also understand what profitability will look like for each of those segments. You mentioned Netflix, but this is kind of getting religion, really. I mean, we saw that also from meta in finally trying to produce more profits for Wall Street. I'm curious whether or not any of the assets will be sold. Is there any plan for that or maybe spinning off anything? Is that another way to perhaps streamline a little? Yeah, and that was a question. I mean, this has been a lingering question with Disney for so many years now. And of course, bob Iger was asked this question multiple times on the call. And he clearly said that there is no plan right now to spin off ESPN. There's already been a considerable review done at the company a strategic review. They have decided that it doesn't make any sense for them to spend the asset right now. And if you just kind of look at it, as troubled as it may be, it's still generates about three, three and a half $1 billion in cash flow. And that is absolutely imperative to the business. Considering that they are still losing money on the streaming side of things. And so they absolutely want to keep it. They do have they are the premier sports property in the world undoubtedly. They do have these marquee sports. They blocked them for a long period of time. And they want to be able to extract maximum value from that. And they have a necessarily said exactly how they're going to do that. But I think down the road, we might see them kind of getting a little bit more aggressive on sports betting opportunities and the like to kind of monetize better. Also, I was very interested in what bob Iger had to say about their streaming business and how they could and they could see actually that they could be open to licensing some of their shows and movies to other companies. Now that really does muddy the waters with regards to a content provider and a content platform as it were because the whole streaming streaming platforms are engaged in a vicious competition now and to start being a provider as well does change the game. Well, absolutely. And I think it's definitely a change in the tone and we're seeing this what I would call almost the great media pullback, right? So we've seen so many of these companies now the first they had this all in. Let's go all in to streaming. Let's have a streaming first approach and now as they're kind of looking at ways to generate more revenue, it makes sense to go back to that old model where maybe they can license some of this content to their rivals and

It was always the smart play by the Soviet Union, and they tried to do it by to infiltrate this country and try and change it from within our enemies. We still have very real enemies.

"A potential rival forward Kim Jong UN's and it's raising suspicions that Kim Jong Gu and may have once again mark one of his own relatives for death. The new documentary delves into this story and its aftermath. It's called Assassins and the Director Ryan White joins me now. Welcome. Thank you, Madeline. Take us back to that day it was in February. 2017. So what? About four years ago? What happened at the Kuala Lumpur Airport on that day? Yes. So 20 Hong and City I shot the two women that you referenced in the intro approach. Kim Jong Nam As he's checking in for a flight on you can see on CCTV. They wiped his eyes with something it turned out to be. Acts, which is the most lethal nerve agent, and within an hour he was dead and the women walk off camera and go back into quality in poor and were arrested a few days later, and when arrested, they said. Yes, we did that to that man. But we thought we were playing a prank on a reality show. And in fact, we didn't even know that that man died. So it's a totally inconceivable story. Sort of the most. Absurd defense we've ever heard for a political assassination. But that's kind of the beginning of my film is that sort of assertion that their defense is going to be that they were on a reality show when they pulled off this assassination? It is really incredible. It's really hard to believe that this is true. But I guess my first question is if this agent VX nerve agent is so lethal, how did they not die if it was on their hands? If the substance enters and orifice it can kill you. Within a matter of minutes, the women had the substance on their hands. And you know, as we sort of trace in the film their recruitment by what they claim they thought were Japanese YouTube producers that ended up being North Korean spies, and the women say that they, in fact have been on this reality show for months leading up to this assassination. And they have been conditioned when they were playing these previous pranks, which were played with Johnson baby oil to go to the bathroom and wash their hands afterwards. So in the murder trial of the women, a chemical weapon weapons expert testifies and he says that if you wash your hands within minutes after you're exposed to be X that you can survive, I think They were prepared that the women may or may not die on the women are probably very lucky to have survived it. Yeah, because just imagine, had they wiped their nose or their highs. They could have died. Exactly. And I mean, at the beginning, everyone, you know the first images that came out after this assassination or of Guan teeth, Wong, who was wearing a sweatshirt that said, L o l on. It s so she was sort of Portrayed as this fem fatal kind of black widow, female assassin. And then when you start to watch all of the CCTV and listen to their defense and start retracing their steps, then you start questioning whether there is the possibility that they are telling the truth. And they, in fact, did not know what they were about to do. Well, tell us a little bit more about each of these young women and let's begin with 20 Hong young woman you mentioned with the L O. L sweatshirt. Who was she? Yes. So the film begins with this moment when they assassinate Kim Jong Nam and are Egg central question that was guiding us this whole time was Who are these women? Like? Who are these women That led them to this moment where they both touched Kim Jong Nam's face, and by the way, both women were saying they did not know one another that they literally met at Kim Jong Nam's face that day. So our film traces their backstories to really find out who they are. So do want. E Flung is from Hanoi. She was actually quite educated. But she wasn't using her degree, and she had spent the last five or six years desperately seeking fame and Hanoi. So she was on Vietnamese Idol and she was doing in a lot of modeling. And she in fact, Was on viral prank shows and Hanoi She was working at a as a waitress at a bar and Hanoi when she was approached by a man asking her if she wanted to be a part of a prank show, and the man claimed to be Japanese. So this is a thing prank shows. It's a huge thing in this part in this part of the world, you know, I think it sounds like a strange defense to people from Western cultures, but Even in the airport where this assassination happened. I remember the first time we were there, and we were filming the irony that on the television screens around the airport, a prank show was playing. It's not an out of the ordinary, you know, source of entertainment in this part of the world. Okay, so that's one Thi Hong and then city Aisha. She's from Indonesia. That's right. So city officials from a village a few hours from Jakarta and had a much harder life than 20 Huang. I would say, you know she was on. Lee was in school until the sixth grade ended up. Working at a sweatshop in Jakarta. She was a single mother on DCI was constantly seeking a better life constantly seeking a better paycheck on DCI ended up Coming to Kuala Lum poor with the promise of a job as we often see when it comes to human trafficking and ended up in the world of the sex trade. And so when she was approach the idea that she could make $100 for playing a prank, and this was a woman who was making 5 to $10 a day was hugely alerting to her because she was sending That money back home to her family and to her son. Wow, that is tragic. So the entire prank show was a ruse to provide cover for this assassination. Well, that's the big question at the epicenter of our film, and I don't think I can Unequivocally say either way, you know, I have to admit. I was very skeptical from the beginning. This assassination happened in February of 2017..

So that's why he is, uh Out as head of homeland security. You're going to be replaced by the head of FEMA. So FEMA's Yeah. I'm sorry. Homeland Security is kind of important and of FEMA seems like They are the classic government agency that's always Lot of bureaucracy and a lot of promises that never come true. So I I've never been a fan of FEMA. I don't know who they had is. I hope they're good. Or another nine days. Meantime, speaking of the next nine days, What do you think? Our adversaries are doing around the world. What do you think about China? Eyes, China looking and going there licking their chops going. You know what we're just going to go into Taiwan? This is a perfect time to do it. Or look at what is what is a glad have on his mind. Vladimir Putin. She got some country he wants to annex. What are we going to do? It. This is we are sitting duck right now. And you hope and pray. Nothing happens. But The world leaders out there that are our adversaries. They're probably smart enough not to pull some big giant stunt, but it makes you wonder. One off the big giant stunts is good old Kim Jong UN And General Jack Keane was weighing in on What Him has been doing. He's been loud mouth in Um About The United States. And here's General Keane talking about his analysis of what he's doing Well, certainly he looks at this as an opportunity with a new administration coming in. And this rhetoric is delivered. Certainly with President Biden elect in mind, Listen where I think Kim Jong Eun that he's been in power for nine years. Now is 37 years of age. When he came in Sandra, he had two major objectives. One is to help North Korea become a self sustaining economy and number two was to expand his military capability but particularly his nuclear arsenal. He's been very successful with his nuclear possible open, reports say about 60. Weapons he has. But he has also expanded the delivery systems the range of those delivery systems to the point where they can reach the east coast of the United States. Quite dramatic. In terms of capabilities, and, of course, he has been threatening the use those weapons systems as well as a ploy to get economic assistance. But the second objective even at that worker party Congress That was just referencing the introduction. He admitted that his economy policies have failed and his last year is in the worst shape he's ever had in his nine years not only because they have the pandemic and the borders closed, but because on a fragile economy President Trump impose sanctions on regime They want sanction relief. That's what this rhetoric is about Sandra. They want to have negotiations with the Biden administration and when he refers to hostile actions, what he's really talking about. Is the sanctions that have been imposed on North Korea so that that's where we're going forward. I think the other thing we know Sandra is that despite their over choice for denuclearization after four years, I think we've come to the conclusion that that was a ploy to get sanctions relief. We've made absolutely no progress towards denuclearization. They won't even give us the preliminary steps towards denuclearization. So that's why the talks have been stalemated, and I think the bite administration will recognize it. That's what they're dealing with is the regime's nuclear power has grown. The regime is belligerent as ever. And as dangerous as ever, And certainly we've always been concerned about the leadership with Kim Jong than his maturity and steadiness. Made no progress. With nuclear proliferation. It sounds like what General he's talking about. Is he got 60 nuke weapons. And that, remember we were talking not that long ago about the fact that he had the ability to maybe reach Hawaii. Maybe. But then we got to the point where well, do you think possibly they could hit the West Coast. And there was a false alarm. I believe in Hawaii couple of years ago about all this business you're with the general said he now has the delivery capability of making it. Delivering a nuke to as far as the East Coast, so that means anywhere anywhere in the United States. So the question for General Kane is Is Joe Biden going to have meetings with this guy? No, I don't think so. Not at all. And I don't blame the president for trying that, but obviously it did not succeed. Lively because where Kim Joon is, I think if there's going to be any negotiations first thing, I think the bite administration to talkto our allies in the region. Talk to Japan. Talk to South Korea Talk to Taiwan, Japan and Taiwan. Both have pretty hard feelings about North Korea. As a Trump administration did South Korea probably a much more open to economic assistance into negotiations with North Korea. And then if we're going to have negotiations with North Korea also talk to the Chinese Communist Party. They have a position here. They're the number one ally, and obviously they have tolerated the growth of nuclear weapons in North Korea. Otherwise they wouldn't be there. And then we're gonna have negotiations. I think the Bible group of begin at the way. It's normally done at the staff working level and see a progress could be made at that level, and I don't see any summit whatsoever. Unless Kim Jin.

"They'll protect your seat and power and these tantalizing options. Mean us leverage and influence abroad is reduced, and I think that's dangerous Ambassador Birds. Is there anything about Trump's foreign policy record that should remain in place? I mean, obviously, you know, I think the criticisms are well established for people who follow these issues, but he was the first to engage with certain hostile world leaders like North Korea's Kim Jong un He re negotiated trade deals that some people believe did need to be worked. Anyway. His State Department help We establish formal ties or established formal ties between Israel and a handful of Arab countries. Are there any things about Trump's foreign policy agenda that It should stay. I think his record of achievement is very thin in foreign policy, But you're right. Michelle, certainly encouraging Arab countries to recognize the state of Israel is positive. Illuminating the problem of China lying and cheating on its trade practices. Trade commitments around the world is something I think that most Republicans and Democrats will agree with. Trying to achieve an agreement with Kim Jong UN was right in the beginning, but he ultimately President Trump didn't accomplish much. You have to give some credit for those, but on the whole He's done enormous damage. You know, before we let you go, You know, it has to be said that a good portion of Trump's legacy regarding foreign affairs is about the way he treated his own experts openly undermining intelligence from his own national security team, openly criticizing diplomats and public servants. People who've given their lives to serving The American people. I'm just, you know, wondering how you rebuild morale in those ranks among the diplomats and analysts, you know, military experts and Christian partners. I want to ask you as a former member of this administration. I mean, you you left some time ago, but But do you share my assessment that morale is love, and I'd like to ask what you think needs to be done to address that there was a little bit of a misunderstanding about the way some of the foreign policy decision making worked under the Trump administration. To a great extent that the career experts were the voices that were making policy. But on certain issues, we would all wake up surprised by a decision that had been made overnight without any sort of policy coordination. That will stop and I think that is what is encouraging people. But some of those, some of the smart policy thinking has continued at the action officer level through even this administration. And I think the recognition that that will now be elevated is bringing back morale. Almost on its own ambassador found that from you and particular curious about your thoughts you because you are teaching. You know, at the moment you're teaching our kids going to school where you're Presumably trying to prepare the next generation. You know of diplomats and I'm interested in how your students have viewed all this in recent years and what you think it will take two Storm morale. I assume you're in touch with your former colleagues and you share my assistant. That morale has been quite compromised. What would it take to fix that? Donald Trump has done enormous damage to the State Department and for his service to the Justice Department, the CIA and the State Department. I feel it very strongly. I was a career foreign service officer We need to know. Put responsibility back on are career officers. We need a stronger budget. We need much greater diversity, racial and ethnic gender in our foreign policy ranks. You see President Biden doing that, and that's very positive. So I think, you know, maybe 10 days from now, If we had this interview again, we feel a little bit more hopeful because a new administration, I think will bring us back to what made us a great country in the world, and that's rebuilding our core strength as a first priority. That's Ambassador Nicholas Burns. He's a former diplomat, and he's currently a professor of diplomacy and international relations at Harvard's Kennedy School.

And finally today, we wanted to acknowledge that it's been difficult for many of us to think about the events of this past week without a fair amount of anxiety or anger or confusion about what comes next. Perhaps you're looking for some words of wisdom or comfort that can be heard above all the shouting. For that. We asked some of the faith leaders who we've talked to in the past on this program to share some of their thoughts. For the current moment, we'll start with Bishop Michael Curry, presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church. Three questions. I'm finding helpful in these days of difficulty and hardship for us all. Sometimes it helps to just ask what hurts. What's wrong? In this time of pandemic. It's helpful to name where the pain is coming from. It's important for those who are sick or who have died to remember them to let their memory be a blessing. But then don't stop there. After you ask what hurts. Ask what helps to be better and to b'more and to endure to survive and even to thrive. And then lastly, but not least, What can I do to help? What can I do to be a blessing to somebody else? What hurts? What helps How can I help? They will make all the difference when we live those questions. Shallow. This'd small hurts felt this past week was.
