A highlight from The Mike and Mark Davis Daily Chat - 10/03/23
"Not just any Fleetwood Mac record, little secondhand news, first track when you put the needle down, when that little Rumors album was released, you heard this, you heard the great Lindsey Buckingham, who is 74 today. Mike, you've caught, you've caught the Mac a few times, have you not? Oh, sure, sure. Love Fleetwood Mac. What a sad, what a sad story because he's so, he's a genius. He's a total genius. And they fired him like four or five years ago. The chemistry was just terrible. He does solo tours now and does some, some Fleetwood Mac stuff, but I just hope he's just not... These stories, these stories about these guys all breaking up and fights and all that. The Eagles, of course, had an epic, epic battle. You know, who they fired, they fired, I guess, the, I mean, they had a big, the two of them, the two founders, I guess, of the Eagles. They broke up and then they came back and, you know, it's like, hey, life is short, you know? That's it. You know what it makes you think about? It makes you think about Aerosmith. Same five guys, 50 years. There you go. You got to get Steven Tyler well again because he like blasted a vocal cord. But anyway, speaking of people who've been together for a long time, here's my buddy. How are you doing? Well, I'm good. I'm just trying to make sense out of the, the rage that the establishment Republicans and the Rhinos and the squishes are exhibiting towards Matt Gaetz. Now, I, I think there's a lot of merit towards the frustration over what Gaetz is trying to do in, in ousting Kevin McCarthy personally. I think Kevin McCarthy has done a great job. I think he's, he's fine. You know, it's a tough conference. It's a tough coalition. You got to hold it together. McCarthy did a great job in helping to identify strong candidates in California and New York, in New York. And without those victories, Marc, we don't have, we don't have a Republican majority in the House. Now, we have a slim majority in the House, slim, four, four people. That's it. All right. So I want to present, and I get it, you know, this is probably giving the Democrats a lifeline. It's ceasing our momentum. This is probably not the most productive thing to happen right now to try to have this crisis over the Speaker of the House. But what the establishment types are saying in their rage, and man, are they mad. I mean, Marc, they're not agitated. They're not, they're livid. I mean, I, I heard this morning, I, I never knew Switzerland could be so angry. Man, for Switzerland, Switzerland's got the knives out in the show before yours. Geneva is on fire. Oh, my gosh, Switzerland is burning. This is a reference, of course, to the always even -handed, neutral, and presidential matters, et cetera, our buddy Hugh Hewitt, who has decided to take a couple of sides, take one side on this. Not so neutral on this issue, is he? I mean, it's just like full -blown, Gates is a clown, he's a fraud, he's a traitor, he's a this, he's a that. I saw a tweet last night that got me thinking, and this is, I think, a reasonable thing to have as part of this conversation. Has Kevin McCarthy fulfilled the promises he made in order to get elected speaker in the first place, or hasn't he? It's a reasonable thing to talk about. It was, you know, Gates and Lauren Boebert and Eli Crane and all these real, you know, sharp -elbowed Republicans got concessions from McCarthy in his bid to become speaker. Remember, I'm old enough to remember that wasn't so easy. That was not long ago. Exactly. And it wasn't that long ago. It wasn't that easy, right? Well, he promised they would pass 12 appropriations bills for a budget, in other words, fiscal responsibility in the budget. He'd give members at least 72 hours to read legislation. Now those are not, that's not onerous and that isn't crazy. So those two promises, well, both of those promises were broken this past weekend. And Gates is saying, you broke your promises and we're going to hold you accountable. Now, does he have a plan? It doesn't really sound like it to me. I don't know who you replace him with. Thank you. And it does hurt the Republican momentum we have. There are over 200 Republicans who are solidly in McCarthy's corner. But Mark, we expect some accountability. We do expect disruption. We do expect people who are warriors and fighting for what we believe in. So it just seems to me that to turn on Matt Gaetz all of a sudden and, P .S., insult the millions and millions of Americans who are rooting for him isn't very productive. Are they rooting for, first of all, your sound, sound logic throughout. Are they rooting for him in this particular tactic or they admiring the lofty standard that he has? And it may not even be all that lofty is like, hey, you made us promises to become speaker. How about keeping those promises? There's an old adage that it's possible for multiple things to be true at the same time. Here are the two things that are true at the same time. Kevin McCarthy has been a very successful, very impactful speaker and deserves a lot of conservative praise for the things he has been able to do. There's thing number one thing. Number two is he might have fudged on some of these things, seems to have fudged on some of these procedural things, and I don't say that to be dismissive of them. Some of these things that he promised the Gang of 10 or whatever they were that were that were holding him up. So in what form is this the only accountability? Is this the only way to call him out? Because all I would ask, and I'll give this back to you in the following way, is if Gaetz tactics are so great and if they are to be admired, what is the end game? What is the plan? Trump's have disruptions a plan, and it's a wonderful plan. Various other people who are disruptors, there's a place they're trying to get you to. Here's what I want to do that is specific. Here's the goal I'm trying to get to. What exactly is the Matt Gaetz end game? I don't know, and I don't know that he knows. I'm not sure he does. I would suggest, I would respectfully submit that the way to deal with these differences is behind closed doors, not to burn it all down. I mean, again, make no mistake. I don't agree with the Gaetz tactic right now. I don't want anybody to be lost on that, but I also strongly disagree with disparaging the spirit with which he's doing it. And again, savage millions and millions of Americans in the process. So listen, I guess Cal's out of the barn. He's called for the vote. The vote's going to come today or tomorrow if they oust McCarthy, which is possible because Democrats are quite capable of adding to this misery right now. Right now, Gaetz needs some Democrats. And if he gets Democrats to support him because they like to sit back and see this kind of dumpster fire, well, McCarthy's out, Mark. Is there an irony there in that Matt Gaetz needs Democrat help to oust a speaker whose worst sin is doing something with Democrat help? Yes. That's a great irony with a capital I. Great way to put it. It really is. And I heard a congressman, you know, a RINO New York congressman on Hewitt this morning and they are again, they are on fire. As you said, Geneva is burning. But this guy pointed out, well, I don't think any of the Democrats are going to want to be associated with this guy, Matt Gaetz. Don't be so sure. Strange bedfellows sometimes. Well, AOC of all people said this week, hey, we're not going to it's not up to us to bail the Republicans out of the mess they're in. Believe me, they're enjoying this. I do agree that this benefits the Democrats. I'm sorry for that. And I hate it. But I also don't like seeing, you know, somebody called a nihilist. I mean, nihilist. You know, it's like and he's anti -American and he's got his daddy's boy and daddy was the Florida. I mean, they're just attacking him personally. I mean, it's it's kind of wild. To see it. There are bigger fish to fry. I want to share with you. You mentioned earlier I was listening to you talk about the plight of the big cities. Horrible story out of Philadelphia. There was a young journalist, an LGBT journalist who was very prolific on X and social media mocking conservatives for being concerned about crime in big cities like his city of Philadelphia. And this guy was even mocking the idea of having a gun to defend yourself in your home. He was mocking and taunting Republicans for criticizing cities like Philadelphia. He loves this Jim Kenney, this sanctuary city mayor. Markie was shot and killed in his home this week. He was murdered seven times, seven bullets put in his body. And of course, the ghouls on social media are dancing on his grave and they're mocking him. Can't do that. But but you must understand that this is life or death, that things are happening in these cities. And I hate it. I hate it for his for obvious for him and for his family, his loved ones. And again, a well -known journalist in Philly, apparently in the LGBT community. But the bottom line is a day before he was murdered, he was literally, you know, poo pooing the idea that we got a crime problem in Philly, mocking the people who are trying to draw attention to the issue to make it better. And it's funny. So did you hear the two things when I was talking about the conversion of Dallas mayor Eric Johnson? He said, listen, we need Republican mayors in our big cities, so I'm going to become one. We also need to elect more of them. And that seems like a ridiculous long shot. How do you get a Republican elected in most of America's big cities? And I don't know the answer to that except to try. A lot of people don't even want to try. We have given up. We have ceded the cities to Democrats. Is that helpful? 70, 80 percent of Americans live in these big cities. Is that helpful to just give up or should we try to it's a marathon, not a sprint. It's an uphill steep climb to try to get some sensible Republican mayors who can save our cities. You spend so much time in New York. I grew up in the suburbs of D .C. I'm in Dallas and Fort Worth all the time. You're in Tampa all the time. Big cities are beautiful. There's no more beautiful city in America than San Francisco. It breaks my heart what happens out there. Should we try to save American cities or say, screw them, get buried under your own bad policies? I'm inclined to say you own it. You live with it. You've got to you inherited this. There's a great column by Douglas Murray of the New York Post called The Fall of Lululemon. How stores have surrendered to looters. He tells the story of how Lululemon fires employees who try to stop shoplifters from walking out with the high end material and merchandise from Lululemon. And a lot of stores are doing this. They're firing any of the employees. They're saying, let them go. Let them walk out. And guess what? When you when that happens, when you encourage it. I mean, it's not a sane society anymore. I mean, call us old fashioned. Law and order is an important thing. It's one thing that people want to steal, but for businesses not to mind being stolen from. Well, but I'm intrigued by the employees thing. And for those that don't know, Lululemon is high end athletic wear, mostly for for women, but not exclusively. And so there's some some an arm load is some serious cash if you're going out the front door. Thousands and thousands of dollars. What do we expect? I mean, if I'm an employee, I'd love to say, well, I'm not going to let this happen, blah, blah, blah. But sometimes these people might be armed. I mean, what these what these stores need is armed guards to prevent this, not employees trying to try and try to go vigilante. Two female Lululemon employees in Atlanta confronted three masked men who pillaged the store. All they did was call the police. Right. I mean, one of the systematically said, you know, what do we want them to do? What do we want? They did call them. They were fired. They were fired for for for OK. Pardon me. Confused host for for calling the police or for not doing more for calling the police. No, they did too much by calling the police. One of the fired employee told the Atlanta Journal Constitution, we are not supposed to get in the way. You're supposed to clear the path for whatever they're going to do. And then it's over. You scan a QR code. We're not supposed to call the police. We're not supposed to talk about it. And Douglas Murray says Lululemon isn't the only company in America that has taken this completely lax approach to its own stock. Well, guess what? Lululemon's on the verge of bankruptcy. They're going out of business. And Douglas Murray writes, you know what? I'm sorry. Count me as one who's not real sympathetic. We're in post consequences America. And this is how Congressman Henry Cuellar gets carjacked. Or it's not the specific because of this, then that because crime is going to happen. But we're going to get more of it in cities where people know they'll get away with it and know that punishment does not await them. And there is a choice that Americans get to make. Republicans are law and order. The Democrats are certainly not, no matter how mad Switzerland gets. Look at that. Look at that call back. Happy Tuesday. And the Mike Gallagher Show lies ahead.

A highlight from Crypto Update | Surge in US Job Openings Sparks Economic Jitters and Market Reactions
"This episode of Markets Daily is sponsored by CME Group. It's Tuesday, October 3rd, 2023, and this is Markets Daily from CoinDesk. My name is Noelle Atchison, CoinDesk collaborator and author of the Crypto is Macro Now newsletter on Substat. On today's show, we're talking about Ether, Hong Kong, jobs and more. So you don't miss an episode, be sure to follow the podcast on your platform of choice. And just a reminder, CoinDesk is a news source and does not provide investment advice. The launch of the crypto market's first U .S.-listed Ether futures funds yesterday did little to lift spirits. After rising in early trading, Bitcoin drifted lower throughout the rest of the day and today so far it has been holding steady. According to data from CoinDesk indices, at 10 a .m. Eastern Time, Bitcoin was trading at $27 ,434, down 3 .5 % over the past 24 hours. Ether weakened by even more, trading almost 4 % lower at $1 ,655. In a moment, we'll discuss the underwhelming results of the Ether fund launch day. One thing to point out is that Bitcoin's price is still higher than it was heading into the weekend. In other words, it has not yet completely unwound Sunday's sharp jump and is currently almost 2 .5 % up on early Saturday morning. Ether, on the other hand, is half a percent lower. Today we got a fresh batch of job market data for the U .S. with the job openings and labor turnover survey, known as JOLTS. This tells us how many job openings there are each month, how many workers were hired, how many quit their job, how many were laid off, and so on, and is a key indicator of labor market tightness. It came in way higher than expected. The consensus forecast was for 8 .8 million job openings reported. The actual figure came in at 9 .6 million. This suggests that job market tightness is not abating, not even close, which complicates the fight against inflation and makes higher interest rates in the U .S. more likely. In reaction, U .S. yields jumped by even more, gold fell, and the dollar did some see -sawing. Moving over to stocks, the JOLT to interest rate expectations sent U .S. indices lower. As of 10 .20 Eastern Time, the S &P and Dow Jones were down roughly 1%, with NASDAQ down more than 1 .4%. This kind of sharp reaction to economic data is typical, and things could calm down as the day progresses. Markets are jittery, though. U .S. stocks were mixed yesterday, with the S &P flat, NASDAQ up almost seven tenths of a percent, and the Dow Jones down two tenths. The fact that the S &P did not have a good day yesterday in spite of the U .S. government shutdown being avoided shows just how cautious investors are feeling. The flat performance is also, in spite of August manufacturing data, coming in much better than expected. This was good news, and yet the market was still nervous. The U .S. 10 -year Treasury yield today has reached almost 4 .8 % for the first time in 15 years. In Europe, stock indices are also heading down fast. Yesterday, the German DAX, the French CAC40 and the Eurostock 600 all lost roughly 1 % and have continued lower today, losing another 1%. In Asia, Japan's Nikkei Index dropped more than 1 .6 % in today's trading, partly in sympathy with stocks pretty much everywhere, and partly because concern about the exchange rate is ratcheting up. One thing to keep an eye on is potential intervention by the Japanese central bank to defend the currency. The yen -U .S. dollar exchange rate is a hair's breadth away from the key 150 level for the first time since last October. Back then, the central bank intervened by selling dollars and buying yen. This sent the DXY dollar index tumbling over the next couple of months. It is not clear whether the Bank of Japan will do the same this time, but if it did, it could have a significant impact on global markets. A weaker dollar in theory would be good for crypto prices, as Bitcoin and the dollar often move inversely. It should also receive some pressure on commodities and other currencies. Speaking of commodities, the Brent crude benchmark continued to fall in early trading, as the supply outlook is becoming more complicated. Yesterday, the Turkish energy minister said that a pipeline channelling supply from Iraq would reopen this week, yet it closed in March due to a payment dispute. According to Bloomberg, an Iraq official has cast doubts on this timeline, so who knows. Traders are apparently also getting concerned about the impact on demand of a global economic slowdown. Over the past few hours, however, Brent has been clawing back some of its recent decline, and earlier today was trading at $91 .5 per barrel. It is still down 1 .8 % on the week and up almost 3 % on the month. Gold continued to retrace, earlier today hitting its lowest price since the beginning of March. It is currently trading at around $1 ,820 per ounce, down 0 .6 % over the past 24 hours.

A highlight from Frank Giampaolo On The Mental Side of Tennis, and Achieving Peak Performance
"Welcome to the official tennis .com podcast featuring professional coach and community leader Kamau Murray. Welcome to the tennis .com podcast. I am here with award -winning best -selling author, a coach, a counselor, you know, focused on tennis and the emotional, you know, part of tennis. And he wrote a book that, you know, sort of really important to me and I think really telling for young kids and, you know, a book that pros and pro coaches can also go back and reference in an attempt to help their player. And the title of the book is Emotional Aptitude in Sports with a subtitle of Stop Choking in Competition. And choking is such a loose word. And, you know, like we've seen players not finish. We've seen, you know, we categorize it as choke, but it could be panic, it could be whatever. But, you know, tell me about, this is Frank Gianpaolo, and tell me about the inspiration behind the book, where the stories and experiences come from. Yeah. Yeah. Thank you so much. And Kamau, it's good seeing you again. I'm happy to be here. Yeah, the book was written about five years ago, and the inspiration really comes from the idea that at a lot of these national tournaments that I'm coaching the kids, when they end up losing a match, they hardly ever talk about stroke mechanics. They don't say, look, if I would have had my follow through two inches higher, I would have won the match. They always talk about mental and emotional issues. Like you say, I couldn't close out a lead. I'm choking, I'm panicking, you know, things like I get so nervous and fearful. So performance anxieties really comes into play. And it's our job as coaches not just to teach, you know, the hardware, the strokes and athleticism, but also the software of the individual. So the mental and the emotional. So let me just categorize that just for a moment. So mental the to me, the mental is just my opinion, but it's more of the thinking side of the game. It's strategy and tactics and knowing your personal tennis identity, knowing your top patterns of play, how to expose what you're good at, how to expose, you know, if you love your forehands, you should be hitting mostly forehands and your job is to expose your strengths. So the mental side covers a lot of a lot of those topics, but also things like score management, as you know, momentum management or energy management, focus management. Man, that's that's a hard that's a hard thing to do to think about an average tennis match is like one hundred and thirty points. And we're we're asking these individual athletes, you got to stay focused on task for, you know, one hundred and thirty little mini wars. And man, it's tough to do. So the emotional side is a little bit different. That's more of a performance anxiety. So we have the mental side of strategy, tactics, performance anxieties is more of the emotional side and we get a lot of that with nervousness and fear. So, yeah, let's chat about that stuff. I like the topic. Now, let me ask you this, though, because as a coach, you know, we're on the court, we're giving lessons, we're giving groups, we're trying to get to hit as many balls as possible. Is the work around the emotional part for you mixed into the lesson? Like, are we going to spend 15 minutes sitting at the chair right with the parent listening, analyzing this? Or is this like, hey, we're going to get our eight to 10 hours on court. We're also going to spend an hour or two in the classroom or you laying on my couch. Like I'm a therapist. Tell me about how you integrate this work into it. And then we'll talk about some current events that kind of come to mind. Yeah, beautiful.
A highlight from Episode 123 - Dream DAO - Empowering Gen-Z builders with Web3 to regenerate the planet
"Dreamdow comes from this place that the kids will lead. When she was training all these young people to change democracy and government, they realized that there was not many people investing in having 15 to 20 years old in the web3 space. When you're at that age and you're in this world, in between worlds where the internet that you're using and all the things that you're using, you had no contribution in creating it. And the generation before you did, to have an ability to co -create and develop the new version of that, that's one thing that is super exciting. Welcome to the Crypto Altruism podcast, the podcast dedicated to elevating the stories of those using web3 for good. I'm your host Drew Simon from CryptoAltruism .org. Now before we get started, a quick disclaimer. While we may discuss specific web3 projects or cryptocurrencies on this podcast, please do not take any of this as investment advice and please make sure to do your own research on opportunities investment or any opportunity, including its legality. And now, let's get onto the show. Welcome and thanks so much for joining. Youth are the leaders of tomorrow. This is a saying you've probably heard many times and while it's true, I also believe that youth are the leaders of today. After all, we've seen so many movements of change led by young people, whether it's climate justice campaigns or the civil unrest in Iran following the death of Masa Amini. Youth are the leaders of today and it is important that they have a seat at the table and are given the opportunity to, well, lead, including in new and emerging spaces like web3. For today's episode, I'm excited to welcome Amanda Maritan and Sean Patel, co -stewards of Dreamdow, a movement that gives Gen Z the funding, mentorship, and training to contribute to web3 projects that regenerate people and our planet. We discussed their innovative program that has helped onboard pioneering Gen Z leaders to web3, why young people should get excited about blockchain, their incredible Skywalker Z NFT collection, how web3 technology can help regenerate the planet, and much more. So without further ado, please join me in welcoming Amanda and Sean to the Cryptoaltrism podcast. Amanda and Sean, thank you so much for being here. It's a pleasure to have you on the Cryptoaltrism podcast. Hi. Thank you for having us. Thanks. Excited to be here. Yeah, for sure. I'm excited to have both of you here and to learn about the great work that Dreamdow is doing. I've been following it for quite some time. I think it's such a great mission, so really excited to dive into that. Before we get there, I'd love to hear about both of your stories of how you got into the world of web3. It's always just so interesting to hear everyone's unique journeys to this new and innovative world. So maybe we can start with you, Amanda, and then I'd love to hear your story, Sean. What was your aha moment that got you excited about web3 and crypto originally? So I joined web3 through Dreamdow. It was co -founded by Civics Unplugged. So I was part of the Civics Unplugged fellowship. It's like a leadership democracy fellowship of three months. And then after that, I realized that they were launching Dreamdow, it would be used like this emerging technology and also like social impact and democracy. And it would be really nice to explore. So I applied and I got in and I didn't know much about web3 actually. I was never like this very tech person. I know like how to do things in your computer and all that, but I never actually tried to get more knowledge. And I was like, okay, maybe it can work, but maybe not. But they were actually very nice in giving us confidence to just join, even though you're not like very tech savvy. So I joined and I began, you know, contributing to the DAO, just helping actually build this learning journey that we were going to do. So all the offerings that we have for builders to learn about web3, we were actually building during the first season. So I was just actually getting engaged on that. And it was how I actually began, you know, working in web3, like as a part time thing. And I think my aha moment was when after all of the things that we did with Dreamdow, they decided to like reward all of the builders, like for the time that we spent building things in there and creating. And they also began organizing like these travels for conferences. And it was when I realized that it was actually about us Gen Z, like young people, they were actually going to support us. And when I joined Climate Collective through an internship that Dreamdow matched me, we were mapping all this like refined projects and there was like so many different ideas. And it was when I was, Oh my God, this is really exciting. You know, it's something that you definitely will change because not just because of the technology, but also because of the creativity and the innovation that is in the entire space. And yeah, it's been really excited about it since then. Yeah, totally. And I love that because too, you mentioned there around the, you don't have to be like a tech savvy person to be really, to succeed in this space, right? Cause I'm certainly not, my background is not in technology, but really in web3, you know, no matter what your background, if you're in business and artists, legal, you know, marketing, whatever it is, there's a place for you in web3, right? So yeah, that's amazing. And it's great to hear about the excellent experience you have with Dreamdow too, which I'm excited to dig into a bit later on. And so Sean, I'd love to hear your story now. Yeah, of course. So my journey started in 2018, about then, when I had started my first year in university, studying environmental economics. And I had started my first semester doing research for one of my professors and honestly, you know, going into academia and just being like really immersed in doing research, especially when it came to how to incentivize sustainable decision -making, you know, it was a big task and I seen how many hurdles my professor that I was researching under had to jump through just to like get a little bit ahead and get a little bit more funding for her research. And yeah, it just, it was really frustrating for me because her stress kind of overlaid on to me and everything kind of came full circle at that point where like something that I was really, really interested in and really thought I was in the right place, right, then kind of got dismantled because I was like, okay, a lot of politics involved, all these things. And then a lot of overall inefficiencies in terms of the actual application of that research, even if it's reputable. And so yeah, they say I look for ways in which to disrupt my professor's research, but also it was kind of just a random occurrence in that fact, right, where I had always known about Bitcoin because of a trend and it came to a point where really it was understanding that that was the space, not only Bitcoin, there's a lot that's happened in even like those past three years, whether it had been from 2015 Ethereum and understanding what has come next. And so it was a lot of trying to find ways, like new ways to disrupt basically incentivization research. And that was kind of the aspect that drew me in where at first, what my part of the project was, was how to track individuals' consumption and basically put nudges in their daily life or whatever it might be to get them to reduce their consumption. And a big part of it was just me trying to go through a supply chain and understand things and then seeing all the fragmentation and stuff, I'm like, oh, well, now I'm trying to solve a second or third order problem. And it's really taking away from the main research aspect that I was expecting to enjoy a lot. And yeah, and that was kind of what pulled me in was, I guess, not even the sustainability implications of using blockchain, but it was purely the fact that programming our values into financial services was a possibility. Because what I saw was my professor who was an academic and people I got interested and introduced to in the space of Web3 were practitioners. And I saw both very smart individuals, but very separated by a big gap. And it was just that kind of thing where I had to dive in like everyone kind of did and get pulled down so many different rabbit holes of just experimenting per se, because there is no like absolute kind of fully functioning use case in that sense. So a lot of exploration for a lot of years had not invested any money, very small amounts like pennies to dollars and just to be able to test and experiment with things. I think the coolest thing was at the time of studying economics, you had a place in those economic experiments, rather than doing it on real people and like a case study or something. And then nevertheless, overlaying the environmental aspect. So I think the idea of provenance and tracking things faster than our source and not having any of that right now, then the opportunity to have that in the future was like profound for me because I was like turning, becoming more vegetarian at that point and everything. I wanted to like know where my food was coming from and stuff. And I'm like, Oh, which way to solve this? Oh, you know, watching and ended up being this kind of just like deep rabbit hole. And then finding myself kind of in that Dow space, understanding that like this can be something that's developed only by a select few people because you started seeing that in the beginning. A lot of corporations kind of just coming out saying they have their own private blockchain and that's good enough. And I hate it always hearing that kind of good enough kind of saying. So yeah. And then I had the kind of opportunity by exploring the Dow ecosystem by finding my own Dow and it called EcoDow to then have the opportunity to just like be in New York and be in that area and randomly meeting Gary from Civics Unplugged, just like at a coworking session. And yeah, I mean, it was that kind of serendipitous thing where like, we all had made those same decisions and came to those same conclusions from our own personal experiences. Then we ended up finding ourselves in that same place. And it was ultimately like a trust, a meaningful sense of trust that like we didn't have to really build, it was already there. And DreamDow kind of showed me that value proposition from the inception. Even before DreamDow had launched, Amanda could say like at Civics Unplugged, there was this moment where that transition was happening for a lot of people and no one knew what to expect. I think that was the biggest thing where I was also like 20 years old. So I was between the cutoff maybe for being a builder or a mentor. And so it felt weird for me too, to be still in university and then like supposed to be a mentor. And I'm like, I need a mentor myself. You know, and yeah, it was a beautiful experience in that sense that like we didn't know exactly what we were getting into. There was a rough guidelines that Gary had designed in terms of like having DreamDow be his brainchild, but it wasn't only him. It was a lot of inputs from the builders that were Civics Unplugged members and also just people around him, his friend network, my friend network, and that was a beautiful thing. I think it was a beautiful arrangement of cross pollination between different orgs in and outside of Web3 that made DreamDow possible. And it ended up bringing a lot of unique people from different backgrounds together. And I just tell my friend today that like, even though maybe things have changed in the ecosystem of market and things, it's like one thing that has at least stayed true to the experiences and the meaningful relationships that have been fostered is still there with DreamDow in a lot of ways. And even just Amanda, knowing her for this long and the expectation that it would have been for something else, you know, it's the kind of thing that we didn't have any expectations. Right. And so then what kind of manifests it, whether DAOs didn't work out or they did work out, or they're still trying to get worked out, a lot of benefits came along the way, especially because it was all focused on funding public goods and DreamDow being the public good and that kind of influence from Gitcoin people and stuff. Like, it's really just been a great opportunity to get to this point in the space. At first, that was my main intention. And then I got lost down all the rabbit holes in the space. And then as coming to DreamDow and now to present, being re -centered and reinvigorating that original conviction, it's hard once you go through the ebbs and flows of different cycles of the market and stuff, you get tossed around. But it's nice to still be here and have that original conviction, let's say five years ago. So, yeah, it's been a fun time from that first aha moment of just like, how can I disrupt my professor's research? Yeah. Yeah. It's funny how that happens, right? You like first start by looking at one thing and then you kind of go down this rabbit hole and you see all these other kind of use cases and discoveries. So, yeah, I can totally resonate with that. And, you know, it sounds like DreamDow has played an important role in both of your Web3 journeys. So I was hoping now, like, I'd love if you could just give an introduction for listeners who aren't as familiar to the mission of DreamDow and Civics Unplugged. Yeah, of course. So DreamDow comes from this place that the kids will lead. So when she was training all these young people to like change, you know, democracy and government, they realized that there was not many people investing in having, you know, 15 to 20 years old in the Web3 space, right? Because usually you need to have some sort of experience and previous knowledge to join either as like working or as a builder in the whole space. And they thought that why we don't do this on boarding and then we train these people and give them like their first opportunities like mentorships and internships and all like help them to build this network. So that's what DreamDow has been doing since it was launched in November 2021. We are investing in the future of Web3 social impact ecosystem by training, funding and mentoring and giving opportunities for Gen Zs, specifically 15 to 20 years old. People are still in high school, beginning college or in gap years so they can discover this whole Web3 space and find ways to leverage, you know, use the technology to leverage the world. We really believe in the solarpunk movement. So how we can, what we can do right now to reach this point, you know, in the future. And we thought about bringing the people who will lead in the future because right now we have, you know, other generations building the Web3 space and innovating and doing all these things, but in the future we are going to lead and I hope I'll be leading as well. So, yeah. And then we just have this intergenerational learning community between like, you know, other generations who are the champions and also this Gen Z builders. So we just have all this knowledge exchange and it's a place not for builders to learn and champions to teach, but also, you know, vice versa. I think Sean always talk about this, about how you get in here expecting to like teach someone about it and then you also learn about it. And I think that's really interesting. So it's like this whole community of having people learning about how to use the Web3 and like the ReFi space so we can, you know, change and do things like that, improve our system and, you know, that makes the world a better place and more sustainable as well in that sense. I love that. I think that that's such an important mission. And, you know, like we said, too, that it gives people a chance to kind of figure out and, you know, experiment in Web3 and learn about the space in a very accessible way. Because I think that, you know, at that age, you know, 15 to 20, if you think about that, you have to make a lot of big life decisions. Right. You know, and often you're like in the moment, OK, what do you want to be? You're in a university, you're going to be a doctor, a lawyer, you know, an accountant or whatever it is. Right. And it's a big decision. And then, you know, having something like this that gives you a chance to kind of experiment in an area, learn about it, see if it's something that you want to like really dive into is really, really powerful. And so, you know, the focus is obviously on Gen Zers of DreamDot, which I think is great. I'm really inspired by just the work that, you know, so many young folks in Web3 are doing. So why should Gen Zers care about and get excited about Web3? I think like the one thing that Amanda was highlighting in the fact that there's this opportunity that's given, right, that is not really like an open opportunity. It's a lot of kind of experience has to come with just trying to like get some position of, you know, contributing on a structured basis in the space. We actually now have like this opportunity, right, to not only disrupt that way of like working, right, but disrupt just education in general, right? That like how you were saying, you know, a lot of decisions have to be made at those young ages. And is this type of thing where it shouldn't have to be so deterministic, and also just like discrete to what you have to do, per se, instead of like having a learning experience be something that's more perpetual, rather than something that, you know, you do till you're 18, or you do till you're 20, and you finish your university or whatever year, and then it's like, it's over. Right. And I think that's something that like Amanda has benefited from in the sense of like, okay, there's not even like more to learn about, but that like, the learnings don't stop, particularly. And then more so, it's even more relevant, because when it when you're at that age, and you're in this like, world in between worlds, where like, the internet that you're using, and all the things that you're using, like you had no, like, contribution in creating it, right, the generation before you did. And, you know, there's a lot of things that are being pushed on you, whether it's what you have to do in terms of choose a career, choose what you study. And then also, just all the things you use in your daily life, right, to have an ability to co -create and develop kind of the new version of that, whether it just be the internet, or how you learn, right, and how you educate yourself, like, that's one thing that is super exciting, because like, yeah, like teaching yourself has been always something that's been valuable. But now it's even more like, I guess, emphasize with there being like, this kind of open source space that is interfaced with like, a more friendly experience for kind of everyone, right, even though the space had been like, highly technical, that was like, somewhat maybe a barrier to people that were just getting started adopting it. There had been so many new avenues opened up, right, for someone to come in from like, any vertical, right? Like, we're just lucky, actually, in DreamDell that, you know, the vertical have been civic innovators and young social entrepreneurs, and they cared about it on like, a deeper level rather than just like, what they can kind of get out of it, right. And so that was like, something that is getting, I think, ever more so exciting, right? It's just being able to see how the kind of the impact not only happens from the value capturing that you see is there, but now like coming in and like, okay, how can we create more value? And that happens from an earlier age. You know, I think we all wish in some ways we got in earlier or whatever, but it's more of just, you know, age component, right. So I think I've seen all these builders, been able to gain more that expertise I could have ever in that short amount of time, especially at that time in my life, right. So it's just, yeah, the hope is, I think that the most important thing when it comes to that, right, just getting excited about all the hope that gives us for moving forward, right, especially in these, like, very, very uncertain times, when anything can happen. Yeah, totally. And I think, you know, some you said there, too, that, you know, really stood out to me is I think, you know, these Gen Zers, these 15 to 20 year olds have grown up with this technology that they had really no part in creating, right. And there might be some value misalignments, right, with this technology and them, you know, like, you know, you've seen what's happened with traditional web to social media, and the breakdowns of trust and, you know, lack of transparency, and, you know, those sorts of things, and then being able to have the opportunity to right the wrongs of, you know, the past internet and build a new, you know, more internet that more lines with their values, I think is really powerful. So I think that's a great point that you made there. And we'll be right back after this short message.
A highlight from ICAS offers infrastructure, security, and surveillance products to enterprise, schools and municipalities, Podcast
"This is Doug Green, and I'm the publisher of Telecom Reseller, and today I'm with Mirko Notaranjola. Mirko, thank you for joining me today. Hi, Doug. I appreciate the invitation and the opportunity, and it's a pleasure to be here. Well, I want to welcome you. Mirko, we're making our third podcast today here at the amazing Mobile World Congress, and Mirko, you're the director of marketing for ICATS, so I want to welcome you to our podcast program. We're going to be talking about your company and so on, but before we dive into that, could you tell us a little bit about ICATS? Sure. ICATS is over four years of experience in technology infrastructure, and it is a family business in specializing assembly in 1979, and later expanded its core focus to network infrastructure. We have extensive and improved expertise in the mobility industry, IoT implementation, security, and electrical systems. We usually operate on a national scale, and throughout the years, we had the opportunity to partner with Fortune 500 companies to implement and deploy essential components that form the foundation of technology infrastructure. So what are some of the common challenges facing enterprises looking to update or deploy new wireless or networking technologies? Well, before embarking on a network upgrade or deployment, it's crucial to have a clear understanding of the existing infrastructure. The successful deployment of a new wireless networking technology, for example, requires careful planning and a clear understanding of organizational goals and the ability to navigate these common challenges effectively. I will say complexity also. Modern networks are becoming increasingly complex due to the adoption of new technologies, and managing these complexities, especially for large enterprises, can be difficult. So proper network design and management, management strategies are essential. Things run effectively. So how do operating according to industry standards and best practices make long -term performance impacts? Well, many industries have regulatory requirements and standards that organizations must meet. Adhering to these standards helps organizations avoid potential legal and financial repercussions. Following industry regulations pays basically the way for secure and prosperous long -term future. So what advice can you offer an enterprise facilities or IT manager tasked with updating or growing the network? Well, first of all, avoid the temptation of doing everything alone and collaborating with experts in every aspect of the network design and management. Rely on expertise, on the expertise of specialists, and bringing in the people that can help prevent costly mistakes. Choosing the right vendors and solutions for the organization's networks is a critical decision. So how does ICAST support security and wellness initiatives in schools? Oh, that's a good question. Many schools often face a double challenge. First, they lack the necessary personnel or IT expertise to effectively manage their technology infrastructure. Secondly, educational institutions typically operate on tight budgets. So this can lead to various issues including difficulties in maintaining and troubleshooting network, implementing new technologies, and ensuring that security and functionality of a digital learning environment. To bridge this gap, ICAST is offering comprehensive solutions tailored to the unique challenges faced by educational institutions. Through initiatives like the Empire School Safety Program, for example, ICAST provides schools with essential security measures including surveillance systems and access control. And digital signage or smart screens. Furthermore, we offer IoT solutions like pay to promote a safe and healthy learning environment. Basically, the rape detector, what it is, it's an IoT device designed to recognize the use of electronic cigarettes or vaping devices. It is installed in areas where vaping is restricted. And when the vape detector is tricked, it sends an immediate notifications alert, typically via text messages or email only to authorized personnel. So by addressing these technology and security needs, ICAST aims to empower schools and ensure that they can provide a modern and secure educational experience for everyone. So, Mirka, I really want to thank you for joining me today. It's been really enlightening. I hope we get to do this again, and I hope you have a great time here at Mobile World Congress. Where can we learn more about ICAST? Oh, if you're going to find more about ICAST by visiting our website, icast .org .com, they will discover detailed information about our services, expertise, and how we can help your enterprise or institution. It's been a pleasure. Well, it's been mine too, and I hope we get to do this again. Thank you again.
A highlight from AIQ goes the distance in knocking down costs, delivering actual savings to IT spend, Podcast
"This is Doug Greenspan, Telecom Reseller. We are at Mobile World Congress and I'm with Blake Wetzel, who's the Chief Executive Officer at AIQ. Blake, thank you for joining me today. Thanks for having me. Well, I'm very pleased that we're able to do this here at this major event. And I think we're just going to get right into it. We're going to talk about AIQ. But you said something just now a few minutes ago where you saved a major company, many people know of, IP telephony company, 18 million dollars. And I want to hear about that story. Yeah. And it's 18 million dollars a year. 18 million dollars every year. Every year. So our process with a lot of companies involved in that particular company is on its third year of AIQ and helping them reduce unnecessary expenses. But what we do is go in and work with the finance organization, the criminal organization, and that particular company. We're looking across everything they're buying to deliver their services. That could be everything from the underlying technologies to equipment to actually things like how do they issue their goods. So we look constantly across these innovations. And because of our patented process, we can see they're buying things that the market maybe has shifted from an expense perspective. And we want to bring the best technologies to our clients. So in that particular case, we actually brought this was actually international. And we were able to reduce that client's expense by 18 million dollars on an annual basis. And we get rewarded out of that client success. And so it's pretty it's pretty phenomenal to see that with the client. And the great thing is, is because of that, the clients like that particular company come back to us year after year because there's always a cycle of being able to revisit certain expenses inside the IT infrastructure. So, Blake, let's let's start there because it's interesting how your business is structured. A lot of consultancies start with very big promises. Maybe that does happen. But I understand you actually don't get paid until results occur. Is that is that how this works? For the most part, we do a heavy evaluation prior to actually getting paid by anything. Which is very different. Yeah. Right. So you're already getting as a customer, potential customer, a good amount of insight even before we've done anything. Correct. And we do that for a couple of reasons. Number one, we want to make sure that we're going to bring value to it. There is no sense in us going to evaluate expenses that they might be buying in their key space if they're buying things at market. And there's many times we actually know a client say, you're three percent off of the market, so you're actually pretty good. You've done a good job procurement. That might be one category. There might be other areas where there's something wrong. We feel that we owe it to our clients to make sure they're honest with them. We don't want to go and just collect fees to do a bunch of analysis. That's that's where we're first differentiated as an organization is we don't want to get paid if there's no real savings. The other thing that I think differentiates us is two more things. One is actually we actually can touch their entire IT infrastructure over 100 categories. A lot of organizations have a very narrow perspective of what their expertise is. We've been doing this for over 20 years. So we have a very broad experience with the market, at least from the perspective of the market. We're constantly using options for clients, so we get to see what the market is like. The last thing that's really unique, which I don't know if I've heard of anybody, is we go all the way to helping the clients and negotiate their contracts for them. So they're going all the way to the end. This is not just advice. This is not your advice. We are actually committed. We actually will engage with their suppliers for them. We will actually help advise their internal employees and communicate with the suppliers. But we will also negotiate. We'll work with the legal departments, the finance departments to make sure all not just the typical terms you adhere to, but the business terms. And that's a very differentiating service because we know that today's enterprise doesn't have the resources to do a broad approach inside of their enterprise to create savings. So if we can be trusted advisor to them, then we can add value and they can get the highest. Who's your typical client? It's really enterprises. We've said a hundred million dollars in annual revenue and above.
A highlight from How Crypto Will Change The World
"In case you missed it, Eric Voorhees delivered a fantastic keynote at the Permissionless Conference in Austin, Texas. He talks about why the rule of blockchain is better than the rule of law, gives the SEC direction for what they should do next, hint, get out of the effing way, and tells us why crypto devs should be given Nobel Prizes. I put together some of the best clips from his speech, so let's dive in. It's time to discover crypto. He starts with this. Raise your hand if you're here because you love banks. No hands. Crickets. Crickets, okay. We know why we're here. We're here because we don't like banks. Yes, okay, sure, Lambo's good, but all right, Eric, come on, let's get with it here. Raise your hand if you're here to get your eyeballs scanned by Worldcoin. All right, right there, he's talking about Worldcoin. I feel bad for the people who actually did scan their eyeball. Raise your hand if you're here to celebrate KYC or other forms of wholesale spying on innocent people. All right, raise your hand if you're here for a rebellion. All right, there's some hands. And that's ultimately true. I think there's a little bit of rebel in all of us. Cue the James Dean clip. You're tearing me apart. All right, this next clip, he's going to talk about how the ethos of crypto is similar to the ethos of a frontier America. And as I was working on this speech, I realized that the theme was going to match the name of the event, Permissionless. I love this name. It's one of the best words that captures the essence of our industry. It is radical. It is rebellious. It's non -compliant. It's American. This is America. It's American. You know, a kind of kid, but at the end of the day, he's ultimately right. We need to take back control because that would be the American ideal, and we have lost control of our money. All right, well, let's hear why Eric Voorhees says Bitcoin is interesting. Why was Bitcoin interesting? It interesting was because it was permissionless. Bitcoin invented permissionless money. And with the invention of smart contracts on Ethereum a few years later, we had all the tools we needed to build an entirely permissionless financial system. Permissionless financial system? I mean, what does that mean? Permissionless. They can't stop Bitcoin, and by they, I mean the big bankers. Bitcoin is bigger than them already, and they hate it. All right, now you might be saying, well, Deezy, isn't cash permissionless? Well, let's see what Eric has to say about that. You may say that cash is permissionless, but not if you're sending it across any distance. Try moving $10 ,000 across a border, and you will be swiftly reminded of the permissions that are imposed on you. No, cash is not even permissionless. And he brings up a great point right there. Cash isn't permissionless. We have it in our idea, oh, it's free, I can exchange freely, but like he says, jump on a plane with, he says, $10K. Imagine a million dollars. Imagine trying to move a billion dollars. With Bitcoin, that is possible. And all right, that sounds great and all, but how can it change the world? Consider that essentially all action in the economic sphere requires money. And in a world where most people struggle to put food on the table, the economic sphere is literally the arbiter of life or death for billions. And when he talks about arbiter, he means the people making decisions for you, sometimes against your own best interests. That's why I like crypto because it frees us from that. Most people don't have the luxury of working toward their passion. They work, they toil, they transact because they need to live.
A highlight from Ep386: 3 Ways To Make Money From Your Show
"I want to make sure that I'm always bringing in at least one client a month, one new client a month. So I'm not going to waste my time only doing four episodes in the month. Instead, I'm going to go much more. I'm going to do 16, 17 episodes in the month. Most hosts never achieve the results they hoped for. They're falling short on listenership and monetization, meaning their message isn't being heard and their show ends up costing them money. This podcast was created to help you grow your listenership and make money while you're at it. Get ready to take notes. Here's your host, Adam Adams. Hey, Podcaster. It's your host, Adam Adams, and we are talking about monetizing your podcast. We're talking about the three most common ways that podcasters will monetize. Now, if you look at other episodes that we've done on this podcast, and actually I'll have my team put a few of the monetization episodes in our show notes right now. So now you're listening and you're going to be able to scroll down and see what are the other ways to monetize because in this episode, we're talking about the three most common ways that people monetize their show. So if you want to know the other seven or eight ways, go and check out the links that are in the show notes. We will link to other episodes with other ways of monetizing. We're going to talk about the three most common ways, the three most common ways. The first is CPM. This means cost per meal, and it doesn't mean cost per million. It means cost per thousand. I think meal, M -I -L, must have Latin roots. It must be like Latin, cost per meal. Cost per thousand downloads is the most common way that most people try to monetize. As the three ways that I'm talking about today, this is the worst of the three ways. So I'm going to share what CPM is. I'm going to explain how it works, and then I'm going to share with you a better way. I'm going to explain how that works and how people get a hold of people because you make a lot more than your CPM model. And then I'm going to explain the third way, which is the way that you can make the absolute most amount of money. CPM cost per meal means that an advertiser who, and here's kind of like the caveat to it, and it's an advertiser, they don't necessarily have your same avatar. They're just more of like a general audience advertiser. And so you might have a real estate show. You might have the podcast on podcasting. You might have a show about your health and wellness. You might have something about piloting. You might have something about, you know, aviation, or we can just talk about millions of these things. Education, we can talk about movies, whatever your podcast is about. If you were going to go with a CPM model, that would mean that you would get an advertiser on that had a general ad. They're usually about 30 seconds or a minute long. So that advertiser, they wouldn't even really conversate with you. They would end up just putting up their ads in your place. And so one of the ways that we do this is there's some platforms out there that allow these ads to happen automatically. And when I say automatically, they can be dynamic ads, which means they can do it to episodes that you've already been published, that have already been published, you published a long time ago. And they just basically push a button and then one, two, three, or four different ads, one, podcast. And when it's a dynamic ad insertion, that's going to mean that there's going to be a 30 second ad followed by another 30 second ad followed by maybe a one minute ad followed by a 30 second ad. And that's before you ever give anybody value. Before anyone ever hears anything on the podcast, before you've said anything good, they get bombarded with these CPM model advertisements. One might be about diapers. One might be about home improvement. Another might be about a meal prep service. And the fourth one might be in Spanish or some other language that you don't even understand and neither does your listener. And this is a real story. This is actual true story. And so do you want the CPM model? Maybe. So far, it doesn't sound very enticing, does it? They don't even share my same avatar, you're thinking. If they're not going to help my perfect person, why do I want them? Well, you might not want them at all. You probably don't. And how do I get paid? That's your next question. How do I get paid with CPM? Well, most of these places, they will say, hey, I'm going to give $5 CPM. Or if they really have a lot of money to throw around, they're going to say $20 CPM. And if you found a way to just get the cream of the crop, the best of the best, you might get $30 CPM. What does that mean? That means that per thousand listeners that you have, so think about it, how many listeners do you have? The average podcast has about a hundred listeners. A top 10 % podcast has about 300 listeners. The average one has about a hundred. A top 10 % has 300. A top 1 % podcast has about 3 ,500 downloads per episode. Now you know how you get paid. If I'm getting $5 CPM and I have a thousand people listening, I'm going to make $5. Awesome. Now, if I had three advertisers, I would make 15 bucks per episode. So all the time, the effort, the work, the value that you're trying to give, and then you go ahead and you make 20 bucks, you sell out, you make 20 bucks, and you turn off your listener. You're a very awesome listener that has been coming every single day that you publish an episode. They get excited about it. Well, now they have to sit through three or four ads. And by the way, one of them's in a language they don't even understand because you went with a CPM model. That type of sellout, no offense if you're doing this already, but yes, offense if you're doing this already, that type of sellout isn't going to have a prolonged active podcast. Let's just say you had a thousand people downloading and you had four ads. So you're about to make 20 bucks. Now you're probably going to have like 500 people listening because they don't like the freaking ads. So now your income goes down to 10 bucks. If on the highest end, think about the CPM being on the highest end. Like I'm really crushing it. In the top 1 % of all podcasts in the entire world, I've got about 3 ,500 say I'm even above that. I've got 4 ,000 downloads per episode. And you're looking at a CPM model where you're able to somehow negotiate 20 bucks per each episode, per each CPM, per meal, per thousand downloads. And you got 4 ,000, you just made 80 bucks per episode. I do the math on this. Let's just say you're doing one episode a week. So 52 times 80 bucks. This is the best you could do. At the end of the year, you've only made four grand. It won't even pay for your editor. That's why I don't like the CPM model. That's also why did I bring it up first? I brought it up first because it's the absolute most common way and it sucks. And people get excited because they think they're making all this money, but really they're making like $2 because listen here, I'm going back to the CPM And negotiate you $20 per meal, cost per thousand. You're going to make two bucks, two bucks. You're going to make a 10th of it because you only have a hundred listeners when you need a thousand. So you made two bucks on that episode. What can you get with two bucks today? A candy bar? So if you do this the whole year, you can buy a candy bar every single week. It sucks. Option number two is partnership. This is a sponsor that is partnered with the show. And why is this different than CPM? It's way different because in CPM, they are chasing you. They are putting it at that $5, $10, $20 per meal. And then they're reaching out to people and saying that they'll give you like $20 per thousand. And you think to yourself, Ooh, I get almost a thousand downloads per month. And so I'm going to make like 20 bucks a month. And that's one way. Okay. What is the partnership? This is when you reach out to them. When I give you an example, I coach a ton of people to do number two. And it's because I think the CPM model sucks. And so I tell them, why don't you find a partner of the show or a sponsor of the show? Now, this does not mean an advertiser. The CPM is more of an advertiser who reaches out to you and says, I'm only going to do $5 CPM. And I'm going to do it with anybody who wants to do it. When you're getting a hold of a partner to your show or a sponsor of the show, you reach out to them and then you dictate how much money you're going to be making. So let's just say you've got a hundred downloads per episode. In this case, you'd be able to command much closer to let's just say 1500 bucks a month. If you are an average podcast, you would probably be able to command about 1500 bucks a month. Let's say that your 1500 bucks means that you've got 4 .333 episodes per week, because that's how the math really works. You don't have four episodes a month. I mean, you don't have four episodes a month. You have 4 .333 episodes a month because 52 weeks divided by 12 months is 4 .333 weeks per month. And so in this case, you would be making $348 per episode. Now that's a lot better worth your time, isn't it? Think about how long does it take you to do an episode? If you have a team that edits your podcast for you, then your podcast is only going to take you about 30 to 60 minutes, maybe 90 if you're doing a little bit of research. So for example, you spend 90 minutes to do this. So I'm going to divide $348 by the 90 minutes that it takes you. 348 divided by 90 equals, I don't know why I was even thinking about 90. 90 minutes is an hour and a half. Okay. So I needed divided by 1 .5. So I did that. I was like, what the heck? Why isn't this adding up when I divide it by 90? Okay. You were making about two bucks a minute, but when you look at how much are you making per hour with that podcast, if it takes you 90 minutes to come up with the content or invite your guests, do a little bit of research and then press record, then in the partnership slash sponsorship version number two, you're making $232 per hour. That's if it takes you 90 minutes. Now, if it only takes you five minutes to do an episode, 10 minutes to do an episode, you make a lot more. On the other hand, you are editing your own podcast and it takes you 12 to 15 hours to do all the editing of post -production, create all of your marketing pieces and all of that. Then let's just divide this by 15 instead. So I'm going to do 300 divided by 15 hours. You're making about 20 bucks an hour. And that's not terrible. It's slightly higher than the average minimum wage right now. So it's close to minimum wage. It's not amazing, but it's not terrible. It's not $5 an hour, $10 an hour stuff. So that's okay. You want to spend 15 hours editing and all of this for your podcast, you make about 20 bucks an hour. If you use the partnership slash sponsorship version, that's version number two. There was CPM was number one. Partnership is number two. Number three is going to be selling your own stuff. And that's the cream of the crop. We'll be there in just a moment. So I tell a quick story. I had a podcast client. Well, still have a podcast client. But this is in the past. So Alex came to me, he wanted to make money. He had a top 1 % podcast. So he had about 3000 downloads per each episode. And I told him, Hey, if you do CPM, you're going to be able to make something like $20 CPM. You've got 3000. So that three X of what the cost per meal is. And so you make $60 per podcast. And is that how much you want to make Alex? And he would say, no, it's not worth my time. Why would want to offend my listener to listen to an ad? That's not even going to serve them that comes in in the beginning of my episode before I've even added any value. And I do all of that for 60 bucks just to lose listeners. So that later I'm only making 30 bucks because it goes from 3000 people to 1500 people now. And so of course he's going to say no. So then it goes, Alex, here's a way to partner with somebody. And in the real estate space, I said, one of the main people that you reach out to is a lender. Alex has a real estate podcast. And so he teaches fix and flip and he teaches mindset and he teaches how to scale a business. And when it comes to him getting his sponsor and reaching out to them as a partner of the show, I told him one of the best, easiest places that you can go is a lender. So think about this, Alex, think about a private money lender, a hard money lender, somebody who lands on these fix and flips. Now you can still do coaching for listener and they still need somebody to fund the deals. So you having a fix and flip partner, it definitely both of you serve the same person, but neither of you take away business from the other person. Now, in fact, Alex probably makes more money if he has somebody who can really support his people with money. And the person who lends the money, the hard money lender, probably makes more money when Alex has more clients as well. So it's a win -win. Instead of detracting from the business that Alex can get, it actually supports his business and he's more profitable and effective and his sponsor or his partner of the show is more effective. And Alex says, well, with my 3000 plus downloads a month, because I'm in a top 1%, I could either make 60 bucks if I do CPM or if I do this partnership, how much do you think I can make? So five to 10 grand. And he's like, five to 10 grand? Are you sure? And I'm like dead serious. I am sure you could easily make five to 10 grand if you are the one who reaches out to them. So I taught him how to reach out to them. He and I even role played. So he practiced it. Step one was we decided who are the people that can help him. He writes down the hard money lender. Step two is we decide how do we play to the player? How do we give a pitch to that hard money lender? How do we give them that what's in it for me so that they even give a darn? And step three is to do that first call and to go out of your comfort zone and to call the hard money lender and let them know about the opportunity. So he did this behind my back. Well, we at the end of a coaching call, I said, okay, go and do this. And so he did, but he did it with two people instead of one. So he asked the first person for about five grand. And then he called the second person and asked them for about five grand. And so guess what? Alex could have made 60 bucks an episode, but instead he made 10 ,000 a month. He was doing eight or nine episodes a month. So I need to put in this math, $10 ,000 divided by approximately nine episodes a month because he's doing two a week. So this is an approximation. He's making $1 ,111 every single episode. He's making $1 ,111 per episode. And I know for a fact that Alex has my team doing all of the back office. So it takes him about 45 minutes to make $1 ,111. So I'm going to multiply this by 0 .75 because it's three quarters of an hour that it takes him to do that. Oh, I need to divide it by 0 .75. And he's making $1 ,481 an hour with his podcast. So partnership slash sponsorship, way better than CPM. Do you still want to do that CPM model? No. So the partnership is a much better way to go because Alex was able to make $1 ,400 in per hour instead of 60 bucks or 70 bucks an hour. Much, much better. Now let's go to the third option. The third option is selling your own stuff and this can yield you so much more fruit than the partnership slash sponsorship. So if you want to make more than $1 ,481 .33 every F an hour that you do your podcast, stay tuned. We'll be right back after this episode.

Let's get back into the show. We are back. We are talking about the three most common ways that people monetize their show. The first was the CPM model. We decided together that that one effing sucks. The second one was partnership. That one's really pretty cool. Like that one's pretty cool. Remember Alex making $1 ,481 .33 every single hour that he works on his podcast. When you like that too, or would you like something even a step better? A step better would be you selling your own services. You would sell your own coaching, your own consulting, whatever you can do, coaching masterminds for your listener. And let's imagine that you've got a products. One of my products is above $40 ,000. So the client would come to us and they would pay about $3 ,000. They would pay a little upfront fee and then they would pay about three grand a month and we would serve them for the 12 months. Okay. We would serve them for the next 12 months. So that ends up being more than 40 grand. When you add the three grand a month, but times 12 plus the down payment as well, it's over 40 grand. So for that package, if I get one person, just one per month, then we gross just like you would be grossing the CPM. You would be grossing the partnership money or sponsorship money. You are also grossing. You're selling your own services. So in this case, if all I do is just sell one person, that one package, and I have other packages available that are more and less, all I do is just sell one of those packages once a month and I'm doing four or five or six episodes each week. If I just sell one a month, then I make 40 grand every month, more than 40 grand every month. I'm doing the math right now on my phone, on my calculator, my trusty phone calculator. And I'm assuming that I do four episodes per week, four episodes a week. Now, two of those episodes are 10 minutes on average. We'll just say 12 minutes on average. Let's just say 15 minutes on average because that'll be actually easier with math. And the others are 45 minutes on average. And so I've got basically two hours of work, two hours of work each week because I've got a 45, a 15, a 45 and a 15. I hope that's making sense. So two hours a week. And so I've got 17 episodes happening and almost exactly 17 hours of work. Now, if I divide $40 ,000 by 17 hours of work, it's $2 ,352 .94. It's $2 ,352 .94. So let's recap. Option number one, CPM. You can make 60 bucks -ish max, maybe $5 per episode. Let's imagine that you are doing four episodes a week. And so you're making, let's just say 40 bucks a week. That's a hundred. And anyway, I don't want to give you too much numbers. I'm now realizing that I keep throwing out numbers and that's going to get confusing. So I'm not going to waste my time doing all of that since this is an audio and I don't have something to show you. I'm just going to explain it to you. On one way, you are most likely making about 20 bucks an hour. The next one, you're making closer to a thousand bucks an hour. And on the next one, you're making about $2 ,000 per hour. Now for me, I'm doing four episodes a week. If I was only doing one episode a week, of course I could quadruple that, but I want to make sure that I'm always making that. I want to make sure that I'm always bringing in at least one client a month, one new client a month. So I'm not going to waste my time only doing four episodes in the month. Instead, I'm going to go much more. I'm going to do 16, 17 episodes in the month. If I do 17 episodes in a month, I'm still making $2 ,352 and 94 cents per hour. And in additionally, about $2 ,352 per episode. Now, if with that type of motivation, think about it for a second. If you were doing four episodes a week and you were selling one $40 ,000 thing per month, would you have some motivation to get behind the mic? If you knew that you were going to record for about an hour and you're going to make over two grand, it would become your favorite thing to do. You would choose to record an episode before you would go do something else that was fun. Because it's like, I can get behind the mic for just an hour and I can make two grand. So let's recap. CPM, shitty. Partnership, pretty freaking good. Selling your own crap, your own good stuff. Hopefully nobody sells crap. Hopefully you're only selling really quality things that you've got. Well, that's the way to make the most amount of money. So those were the three most common ways that podcasters make money through their podcast. We talked about how they work and we talked about why the last one is the one that I suggest that you get started on right now. And if you need help, my name is Adam Adams. I coach people for a living. I support people. I help you to be able to make your 40 grand a month, even just 10 or 20 grand a month through your podcast because you're doing fewer episodes. That's great too. That's really, really good too. And I coach people to do that. So feel free to go into the show notes and schedule a call with me so that you and I can start working together. That's going to be a discovery call. And in the show notes is a link to our website. It's growyourshow .com. You'll see the link. And at the top right, you see a button. The button says schedule a discovery call. It's green. It's bright. It tells you exactly what I'm telling you right now. So you just go to that button, push it and schedule a call with me and we will help you start making your 10, 20, 30 or $40 ,000 a month through your podcast by selling your own stuff. See you on the next episode. This is serious. Don't go. Now that you've gotten whatever value that you feel that you got the actionable takeaways, you need to implement the stuff that you learn. If you remember me talking about bird church once and they learn how to fly and then they walk home. I don't want you to walk home. I want you to fly home. So take the steps, take the actionable steps for your benefits that you can become a better podcaster. That's the only thing that I ask of you. And I'll see you for more actionable tips on the very next episode.
A highlight from 1275. Ethereum ETF Launches! | VanEck Predicts $11,000 Ethereum
"All right, so let's roll into the ETF futures launch today. It has happened. This is going to be a big episode for you guys. You don't want to miss this one. If you're an Ethereum lover or maybe you're just trying to venture into crypto for the first time and you're finding out, hey, there's an ETF futures out there on this thing. We're going to teach you a little bit about that. My name is Paul Baron. Welcome back in The Tech Path. Let's talk a little bit about Ethereum, some of the projects it could affect, and also its future. That's what we're going to try to break down for you. I think you guys are going to like this. James Seaford, he's been on our show before, one of the ETF experts over at Bloomberg. He tweeted, updated version reflecting the change due to the end of the Kelly and Hashtag's partnership will just be the Kelly ETF's product. And he kind of breaks it down. But the point is, is you've got the ETFs that have launched here with VanEck leading the way right now. Of course, we've got a whole litany of these starting to roll out now. So this is going to get interesting around the ETFs as when it comes to the futures ETF for Ethereum. And we'll show some stuff on this and how this plays out. But very, very interesting. So further over here, here's kind of just the layout of the VanEck. Obviously the cheapest total expense ratio at about 0 .66. So one of the lowest fees out there in being able to get into an ETF for sure. VanEck also is starting to do a little bit of advertising. This is kind of interesting with them actually starting to promote an Ethereum ETF future. This is crazy. So truly, and this is obviously institutional finance, so good stuff out there. I want to play a clip of them talking about this. Let's go to that. Ethereum has emerged as the system for an age where connections are no longer bound by location or space. We're not just using the network. We are the network. So when you're ready, enter the ether. Now you can tap into Ethereum's potential with the VanEck Ethereum strategy ETF, EFUT. All right, there you go. Big, big news because that is mainstream advertising. And when you get into mainstream advertising, it means you're going to be getting into mainstream investing and investing is going to start to shift that. That's why ETH and this ETF is such a big thing. It's why we're seeing a little bit of movement on Ethereum itself. VanEck, of course, their Twitter account says, what sets the EFUT apart? Typical ETF setups don't give futures, good tax benefits. C Corp is set up now designed to have potential for better performance after taxes for people who invest in a long time. So there are some apparent tax benefits here that VanEck, of course, is touting. So if you are in that case, make sure and, you know, investigate it. Let me know what you guys think. Further into this, just to show you where you can get this, now you can invest through your brokerage account in Robinhood, SoFi, Charles Schwab, E -Trade, Fidelity, pretty much anywhere you can buy EFUT. So easy to do and easy to get into. I want to go to this next clip right here that kind of breaks down a little bit further into what VanEck is trying to do with Ethereum as a whole. And this is Mr. VanEck himself What do you see coming in the crypto space that you thought it was important enough to get your firm that was established in the 50s moving towards this new area? Talk about Ethereum and there was CryptoKitties and all the potential of the blockchain. It felt like a lot of talk back then and a lot of PowerPoint presentations. But over the last three years, especially this year, I mean, it's just amazing how many software projects are not only coming to the market, but also upgrading in a very significant extent. And that includes Ethereum. I see three major areas of finance being potentially disrupted. One is the banking and brokerage. The second is payments. And the third is banking and lending. I think the larger point is that Ethereum is the leader and Ethereum is making enhancements, if you will, to its software. And so it's getting better over time. I like the fact that we're starting to see real business people recognize what's happening because this is one of those things that happens in those early curves. And that I think VanEck is obviously all in. But there's many of them that are all in on this. And that's including companies like Fidelity. You look at what ARK and Cathie Wood has been talking about in terms of Ethereum growth. So where is Ethereum going as a whole? Well, here is a report by VanEck talking about Ethereum's price prediction. And this was $11 .8K by 2030. Now, I want you to think about that because Ethereum right now trading around $1 ,700. And look at that kind of growth in a very short period of time. We're talking about 2023, end of right now as we're recording this video. That's an accelerant that's pretty heavy. Let me go through a couple of things they highlighted in the report. So it's revenue rising from an annual rate of $2 .6 billion to $51 billion in 2030. Big move. ETH takes a 70 % market share amongst smart contract protocols, which implies a token price of around $11K by 2030, which we discount to around $5 .3K today. So that's what they think the core value is. And then we value Ethereum by estimating cash flows because they're kind of treating the chain much like a business would be treated in terms of revenue and et cetera. A couple of points here that they look at here in their revenue price targets. You see the base case, bear case, and then the bull case. $11 .8K right there on the base case. $3 .43K on the bear case 2030. And then a $51K bull case. That's $51 ,000 per token right there on the bull case. So a lot in terms of confidence around what this is in terms of Ethereum as a whole. There was a We introduced a novel revenue item called security as a service, which is interesting, which is going to help businesses will be utilizing security through the ETH ecosystem to enhance, obviously, security around businesses themselves. So another big advantage there. Since ETH is a bearer asset, ETH can be locked behind some businesses or protocol guarantees to act honestly. So it's another way for how blockchain is permissionless. And it makes it easier for so much of what we see in Web2 to be completely revamped in Web3, which is what Van Eck was talking about there around blockchain and what Ethereum is doing in the banking space, the investment space, tokenizing a lot of things that we typically have to have these intermediaries to be talking to. Further into this report, we assume that 5%, 20%, and 10 % of the finance, metaverse, media, and tech infrastructure activity will move on chain. And what they're looking at is the base case, bull case kind of scenario that plays into finance, metaverse, and media, which is kind of an interesting mix between those. But media, we've talked about one of the reasons we do what we do. We believe that media is going to be moving on chain in the future. Further into this, let's see, we have one more couple of points here. Yeah, all right. Base case 2030 price target $11 .8 to Dermot valuation today's dollars. And then we find today's discounted price to be around $5 ,300. So not a bad value if you're looking at the overall on this. Let's go over to another clip here. And the other clip I want to get into is Matthew Siegel and kind of how they got to this level. Listen in. We're seeing a base case for 5 % or so of revenue banking is applied in some way to crypto and public blockchain. So that'd be the base. And so we dial it up a notch to 10%. Likewise, we do the same thing with each of the other categories, metaverse infrastructure, the bear case, we pull that down to 1%, 5%, 1 % respectively. And the idea behind that is that we see regulatory climate or adoption curve failing in each of those from the bear, hyper bear scenario. Not only is like the end markets not using blockchain, but Ethereum has a very small market share. Our assumption in the base and in the bull case is there's thousands of interchangeable L2s that don't have any real way to differentiate themselves. And so in that kind of scenario, you can see the cut rate that Ethereum can take of those settlements would be much, much higher or the underlying businesses. In our base case, we assume that Ethereum will take 70 % market share of all open source blockchains. And when we do our models on Solana, like that, our base case is that Solana takes 70%. And then we see what type of upside we get when we put in those assumptions. And we look at owning each of these tokens is basically we're owning a bunch of call options that each protocol will become the dominant protocol, even though it's impossible that they all could do so. And then we manage our position size based on what type of upside we see. Most of our deep dives have been on either layer ones or application specific. We have not done one of these models for L2s. And I think there's just more uncertainty around how that's going to play out. All right. So those were the VanEck analysts breaking this down that were part of that report that we just showed just a minute ago. So both of them kind of indicating that obviously ETH in a very bullish case, also Solana in a very bullish case. So another thing that is happening within VanEck, which is kind of interesting, is this right here. So they announced, let me kind of zoom in on this for you guys, that they intend to donate 10 % of our ETF profits into Protocol Guild for at least 10 years. So Protocol Guild obviously designed to help the ETH ecosystem develop, prosper, build on new Ethereum projects that are really kind of growing the ecosystem. So that is a pretty big statement, but it's also kind of investing in the infrastructure. It's interesting because you didn't really see that happen during the evolution of Silicon Valley, which is kind of where I case what's is we're in that kind of zone. They talked a little bit more about it. I'm not going to buy ETH Futures ETFs, but if I was, I would buy VanEcks mainly because they're doing what they should be doing, and that is supporting the industry and supporting where the growth is going to come from. So that's always benefited. I think the interesting thing there is that the space likes it. Here's Eric Balshunis, and they're off. ETH Futures Derby underway. VanEck is in slight early lead. Although it looks like a few of them are not necessarily out of the gate. We'll post updates as we go. VanEck, of course, leading the way right there and you've got Valkyrie coming in with a little bit of activity as well. VanEck with their low fees and what they're doing as an overall strategy might be the winner here. Remember, they were the first one. So it goes back to first mover. If you look at the current ETH Fut, of course, it's very early trading, but you can kind of see the big boom and then a little bit of a slight down where they are holding right around $16 .91. So interesting stuff. Let's go over to this next clip. This will break down a couple of things, I think, when you really consider what the store of value argument is around Ethereum. Let's just play this next clip. You'll get what I'm saying. So the whole exercise of the store value discussion is a little bit, you know, I really have to put a big caveat in there because what I'm really doing is mind reading. I can't point to a statistic and say, people, there was no poll that says I bought Bitcoin because it's a store of value. Things could be built on top of Bitcoin as well. And maybe they're just saying, oh, no, actually, I think Bitcoin's the best smart contract software. So I'm not a mind reader. So these are kind of generalizations and best guesses based on the narrative. And if you look at the transactions, on -chain Bitcoin transactions are about $400 ,000 a day. And that hasn't changed a lot over the last several years, which I think is interesting. But if you look at Ethereum, the Ethereum transactions, the total amount of transactions on the Ethereum blockchain is in the trillions annually now. That's a big number. Ethereum is the most famous. Solana has performed really well this year. I actually think that will continue next year. That category of digital asset tokens has been the best performing this year. We think that's kind of accessing the blockchain and that's the space that we're most interested as a firm. All right. Well, it's good to know. I mean, because I think they hit on both the tokens that we like, which is Solana and ETH. And if you do look at Bitcoin's transactions that it was mentioning there, and I meant to say Bitcoin transactions, but this is the one year and if you just go out to the three year, there has been a little bit of an uptick here. But I think some of this has been the idea of where all of this is going, because just in the essence of what is happening in crypto in general, it's starting to accelerate in a big way. And what he mentioned there, meaning Van Eck mentioned, is that the explosion has been happening around Ethereum. Of course, if you look at Ethereum's transactions, almost same period of time, you see the kind of movement that we're talking about here all the way back from 2019 right there into 2020, all the way to where we are right now, which is in the depth of a bear market. We are in the depth of a bear market when all this is happening. And when NFTs are dead and all those kind of things that really cause pain in the ETH that's ecosystem, the kind of transaction levels that we're continuing to see. Now, other things that are driving this, there's been a couple of projects that have launched here recently. One, of course, is Pudgy Penguins. We did a full report on this, but Pudgy Penguins ran a live shopping experience on TechTok. And there are some interesting things within this that is going on. And what I want you to think about is just forget that it's Pudgy Penguin, I just want to think about retail in general, because retail in general is going to start to implicate. Now, obviously, a Pudgy Penguins project, they're very native to what's happening in crypto. But the cool thing is, is direct sales, they have some key insights. Let me zoom in on this for you. Direct sales showcase products, increase discoverability, audience engagement, global reach. Any retailer out there, especially direct consumer, etc., would love those kinds of insights coming out of something in terms of a digital campaign. So, big deal. A couple of things that came, they did a pin appeared, allowing viewers to add the featured toy to their cart and then check out directly within the app. Remember, this is the digital version of the NFT. And then Pudgy Penguins received over 33 ,000 likes. TechTok Shop recently launched in the U .S. It was available through parts of Asia and the United Kingdom. And then live shopping is expected to reach around $235 billion in sales this year in China. That's insane. And then Pudgy Penguins obviously is a unique position to leverage TikTok Shop to expand their brand. This will grow globally for them, but I think what you're going to see is more retail and also more projects that understand how to leverage all of this. Remember, this is all riding on Ethereum. So, it plays right into the hands of think of what's happening here. So, it's not all friendly Penguins. Now, we've got the Swiss bank UBS launching tokenized money market fund on ETH. And I think this is just one of those things. They're doing an exploratory initiative, but they are going to go through traditional financial institutions, fintech providers, etc. Further into this, you get Ethereum applications from the New York Stock Exchange to the SEC. All of this riding on Ethereum. This is the point that I talk about often, and that is this whole adoption curve. Many people think it's that slow curve, and then all of a sudden it's just straight up. I don't know if we're there yet, but what I am thinking is that there's so much activity in this space and the timing through this bear market has been so suppressive of some of these digital assets that we could be right there on the cusp of an explosion. Now, obviously, there's a lot of other things that have to happen. Some of the things that could happen to cause that kind of explosion are things like this. Is BlackRock's next to file for a spot ETF? That would be huge. If BlackRock said, we're going to go the Ethereum route as well, absolutely massive for the ETH ecosystem. So, for sure. Now, this was an interesting statement. Ripple effect of grayscale decisions is massive. SEC would have faced similar legal challenges for denying ETH futures and ETFs. By approving ETH futures, ETF, now the SEC is effectively conceding that ETH is not a security. This will no doubt impact the Coinbase and Binance litigation. All of that starts to play into this. You start to get a picture of this global reaction that is going to happen within this ETH ecosystem. And I think this is the kind of thing that starts to put you in a position where you can really start to leverage against these. Now, it's not all beautiful, but this was Dave Levine. He talks about this whole ETF futures thing as a scam. I want to play a clip for you. Listen to what he had to say. Do not be fooled by the news that there is an Ethereum ETF. There is an Ethereum ETF, but it's not buying Ethereum. In other words, Bitcoin went up 35%. It's a pretty big game. But if you bought the fake ETF that is not buying Bitcoin, you only went up 14%. So where did that other, where did 50 % of your gains go? They're lying in the pockets of the bankers. Again, it's supposed to be protecting investors. You know, that's why I call these ETFs a scam and they use the name Bitcoin to say what you're buying and it's not what you're buying and it's guaranteed to underperform. I mean, what is the definition of a scam, right? He is a hired gun to do that stuff, right? And the, and the court ruled on it. They said that the SEC loses on all counts because its case and its, and its, uh, its arguments are capricious and incoherent. And there is this risk that, you know, ETH goes up so much, so fast. The Wall Street bank that is trying to track the price because they don't actually own ETH can't actually track it because whatever they're holding doesn't go up anything close as much. And then they go bankrupt because they can't meet the obligations. Believe me, if some Wall Street bank goes bankrupt because ETH goes up or Bitcoin goes up so much because they were playing games and they got exposed, they're going to blame crypto, not their shenanigans. So the whole thing stinks. Coinbase has a thing, it's called stand with crypto click. It tells you who your Congress person is, gives you a little script. I went off script and gave them an air full. Do it. All right. So he hits on a few things with point with these future ETFs is it happens in all markets. This is, this is just one of many out there that are non crypto related. It's obviously being crypto related. So I would dispel the fact that these are scam. These are yes, they're high fee scenarios. There are other ways to invest in these assets, but people look at this in a different way. Mainly this is mainstream investors wanting to go in on these assets and they're not ready to open an account with Coinbase or other things like that. But he did mention something at the end and that is stand with crypto. Listen, this, if you're not already doing it, you should be doing it. Go out and just hit stand with crypto. You can call your Congressman, email your Congressman and it helps you kind of go through the process of letting people know where you stand on all of the 16 ,000 contacts right now at the Congress. So huge, huge movement here. 150 ,000 crypto advocates. This is going to be a big part of next year because next year we are talking about an election year. So it's going to be huge. So definitely. Now if you are interested in buying ETH directly, you can actually do this in a traditional finance way right through the Fidelity app. So check it out if you're not a Fidelity customer. They're not a sponsor, but we've used it, we've tested it and it's fantastic. So that's another way to go. All right guys, we're going to wrap that one up from here. One thing to remember, and I'll leave you with this, this is Mr. Patrick McHenry hitting it in right there home. And that is SEC Chair Gensler refuses scheduled commission vote to provide Congress with requested documents. They are talking about the first subpoena to the SEC ever. That would be huge in the way of who knows what they'll find. What would we see in the way of bipartisan, you know, enforcement that we've seen the FCC pretty much put at will to go out. This may play its course right now with Patrick McHenry. He's not playing around anymore. We'll see how it all plays out. But you guys know what to do and that is join the diamond circle so you can follow what's playing it out. Not only the legislative side but also taking a look at some of the projects that we break down and of course some of our additional content including our Web3 podcast over there with Kyle. We do a We'll leave a link down below if you guys want to catch me on Twitter. It's out there at Paul Baron. We'll catch you next time right here on Tech Path.
A highlight from 1274. Shutdown Delayed, Uptober Begins | Crypto Market Outlook
"All right, so here we are. It is October, October. You get the message here. We're going to dive into that today and find out if Bitcoin and some of these great crypto assets are actually on the move or we're going to get a correction here. We'll break it all down for you guys today. My name is Paul Bearer and welcome back in to Tech Path. All right, let's jump into it. Before we get started, let's go over to iTrust Capital. If you guys are looking at doing some long -term holding on your crypto assets, one of the ways you can do it is through a crypto IRA. So check it out right here, itrustcapital .com. It's the number one crypto IRA platform in America right now, $7 billion in transactions, 200 ,000 accounts created. Definitely, they are killing it over there. Use our link down below. It's going to give you a $100 funding reward. And of course, we get a little help from iTrust to help you guys continue to see this content for free. So that's one of the ways you can help us out. All right, let's get into a couple of the notes today and really kind of talk about where and what has been happening over the weekend. Obviously, Bitcoin's been up. Most of the top 20 have been up. And for the most part, we've even seen some of the Web3 projects also get some good positive action. So what's causing that? Obviously, the biggest issue was the, I guess, the scenario that played out right now over the weekend where we actually came to an agreement, somewhat of an agreement, to not shut the government down, which is always helpful. Kobe Easey comes in and says, breaking Senate vote approved the short -term funding bill to keep the U .S. government open till November 17th. Not bad, 45 days away. This bill includes $16 billion in disaster funding and keeps the U .S. government open for 45 more days. The U .S. government is seeing a new crisis every month now. What's going to happen in 45? I think that's the big question right now everybody's asking is, do we see maybe the month of October as our correction month? And then we have to kind of go into a realization that we're back to where we started. Love to get you guys' feedback on that. What do you think is going to happen here in the month of October? Drop some comments down below. Make sure and smash the like button because it does help us get into the algorithms and help other people kind of explore what's happening in the market. Let's listen to what Mr. Chuck Schumer had to say about this. Let's play this clip for you guys. It's been a day full of twists and turns, but the American people can breathe a sigh of relief. There will be no government shutdown. Democrats have said from the start that the only solution for avoiding a shutdown is bipartisanship. And we're glad that Speaker McCarthy has finally heeded our message. In the end, more Democrats supported this bill in the House than Republicans, proving bipartisanship was the best answer all along. I want to thank my colleagues here in the Senate, especially our appropriators, yourself, Madam President Susan Collins and Leader McConnell. Our bipartisan work in the Senate set the tone for the bill we're about to pass. Our bipartisanship made this possible and showed the House that they had to act. All right. So you saw a couple of things here with Schumer, and that is the whole scenario around the bipartisan approach. A lot of Dems had to come into play on this. Obviously, the Republicans were the ones that were seemingly holding a lot of this back. Now you even have Gaetz really pushing hard against McCarthy, trying to dispose him as the speaker. There's a lot happening there, and it's going to continue to push forward into next month when all of this has to go right back to the drawing board and redo this. So this could get a little up and down. And especially I'm concerned with November because of the scenarios that we will see in both the jobs numbers, the Q4 will start to play out in the sense that we'll start to see what's happening in the markets itself. And it could be a very bad timing for this to occur again. So hopefully this all gets corrected and playing into it. Let's listen to what Squawk Box had to say about this and the impact it might have on the markets. Listen in. Joining us now is Jared Bernstein. He is the chair of the President's Council of Economic Advisers. And Jared, let's talk about this. We have a deal that nobody really expected we'd see. So we made it through this weekend. But what happens in the next 45 days? Well, first of all, good to see you, Becky. This is good news for the American people in the sense that an unnecessary crisis that would have inflicted pretty deep and wholly unnecessary pain on millions of Americans has been averted. That's good news for over 1 million active duty troops, for over 7 million women and kids who risked lacking nutritional support for travelers because of the reauthorization in this bill of the FAA and disaster relief that was also in this continuing resolution. But it did not have to happen. I think what you just played from the president is, of course, exactly right. He shook hands. He had a deal. In fact, there was a law passed with McCarthy back in in June, in early June at the end of the debt ceiling debate that was designed specifically to avoid this Senate. All right. So, you know, they kind of take doing their victory lap, even though I think it's a little bit premature. But the point is, is that there was a huge economic disaster that was averted. So I think that's the positive news. Obviously, the markets responded in such ways that have helped adjust for that as well. But that's not necessarily all of it. We've also seen some other implications coming across from external resources out there in the markets that have caused a little bit of this movement. I think the question everybody's asking now is, is Bitcoin going to continue higher or are we going to start to see Ethereum start to adjust now? Do we see some of the projects like Solana, Avalanche, etc. start to really fly? We'll break into all of those. So don't miss those. We'll look at some charts for you guys as well. I want to go over to a couple of stories here. Why Bitcoin prices up today? A couple of points that were hit on here. US shut down a version, obviously, and also the ETF launches. Now, that is the opportunity. Because remember, Ethereum ETF launches today. And the other idea around this is that when you look at not only the Bitcoin opportunity for ETFs, by the way, if you're not following our market sentiment indicator, you guys should because we are tracking both the Bitcoin and the ETF, the spot ETF sentiment as a whole. It's interesting to see that sentiment kind of go up and down. But the point that they're hitting on in this article is that October is historically one of Bitcoin's best months and is often called October, named in today's video. Bitcoin's October overall. You can kind of see the rundown right there. That green line right there, as you can kind of see where I'm waving my cursor, almost all green over the years going all the way back to 2013. So not bad. Nearly 43 million worth of shorts were liquidated. That's another scenario that plays into that. And of course, I think when you look at the general move with what Bitcoin had to do, I think this is going to be an interesting week ahead of us. Now, there's a lot more that could be happening this week that could still maintain Bitcoin around the $27K to $28K range. That will be a very, very interesting thing to watch because if Bitcoin starts to edge toward around $28K, this is where it's going to get interesting for the future. All right. A couple of things I want to hit on. Right here is Ben Cowen talking about lucky number seven. First green September for Bitcoin in seven years. That's a good sign. But is it a short -lived sign? That's, I think, is really the scenario that plays into this. Sellers have lost momentum. Buyers are now in charge. Target is near the top of the range right now. If it breaks this range that we've been talking about, which I'll show you the chart here in a second, that Bitcoin has been moving to. If you look at just here on the daily, right there is that little high right there around $25 .73 and a little bit. And then, of course, the red candle started to point its way down on the hourly on Bitcoin's move over the last $24. So interesting moves for sure. How are you guys playing this? Is this a zone? Because this has been up and down on the sentiment charts for us. We still see sentiment somewhat waffling with Bitcoin. Not necessarily as much with Ethereum, but definitely with Bitcoin. But the real question is can we hold around this $28K mark, which is where we're hovering right about now. All right. Other things. China's central bank continues to stimulate. So reverse repo injections now at levels not seen since 2020. This is another factor that plays into it. China is starting to inject liquidity. This, of course, causes movements in the markets. It also causes some ripples in the markets as well, because I think China is going to be one that we have to continue to be cautious about in the sense of awareness of what's happening in China, both from a real estate standpoint, but also just from their GDP and their economic growth. Those are the other things that play into this. A couple of reports from Chain Analysis that are kind of interesting here. I thought this would be larger, and it's not. But right now, eastern Asia, fifth most active crypto market accounting for 8 .8 % of global crypto activity. And this is July 22 through June 23. So it kind of gives you a little bit of insight to that. Point is that you do have a significant amount of the market that is in control. Remember, the United States still has a large percentage of what is happening around the world in crypto markets, ironically, without legislation. Can you imagine what is going to happen with legislation and institutional adoption really kind of playing forward? That's where it's going to get super. I think that's when we're going to start to see some big market moves overall.

I've got a repeat guest, my friend Jason Prall who is the creator of the Human Longevity Project. He is the bestselling author of the book Beyond Longevity, a proven plan for healing faster, feeling better and thriving at any age and we are going to talk about sleep light and circadian rhythm and how that plays a role in mitochondrial health, aging and longevity. So this is a really power packed episode. You guys are in for a treat. We're going to talk about different theories of aging. We're going to talk about some of the main hierarchy of symptoms and how to really understand symptoms you might be experiencing and we're going to dive deep into sleep light and circadian rhythm and how critical that is. So I know you guys are going to get a lot out of this and be certain to check out Jason's website. You can go to beyondlongevitybook .com to check out his book Beyond Longevity and also his film where he traveled all around the world and studied some of the longest lived people, people who are aging really, really successfully, you can check that out at humanlongevityfilm .com. So again, you're in for a treat here. If you've not left us a five star review, now is the time to do that.

When you do that, it helps us reach more people and impact more lives with this message. Thank you for doing that. Thank you for being a part of our community and let's go into the show. Well, Jason, always great to connect. And I know we've talked in the past and I had mentioned how much I really enjoyed your book. I mean, I talked about it in the intro, but I love this book, Beyond Longevity, phenomenal book and anybody that's interested in aging and longevity. This is the go to books, really the best book that I've read on that topic. And so just really appreciate your wealth of knowledge and really appreciate your overall perspective on this. And I'm excited to really, really dive into some of these topics that you discussed in the book and really starting with this idea of what is longevity, right? Because that's kind of something that most people think they know, right? But it's a little deeper than what most people really understand. Yeah, well, I appreciate that. The kind where it's really from all the work that you do, it means a lot. So thank you for that. And yeah, it's interesting. We're in such an interesting time when it comes to longevity because we have this new medicine that's coming online with stem cells and biologics, which is essentially dipping back into our own innate intelligence. So that's an interesting thing to explore. And then we have the other side of the coin, which is all this technology, which is interesting and also potentially dangerous and very kind of weird in another way. We can go down some really dark rabbit holes in that realm, and we kind of are in some ways. So we're at a very interesting nexus. I think how we think about aging and how we think about longevity is really, really important. There's historical context for aging and for longevity and for life itself as a cycle. So it's really important to, I think, really explore these things from a foundational principle. Because if we lose that, then we're going to start veering off into these random territories that are going to get us in trouble. And so for me, when I wrote the book, it's like longevity is an important thing. We want elders. We want really experienced people to guide our younger generations. There's a lot of benefits to increasing longevity on the planet. But then it's like, what is longevity? What is aging? How do we think about aging? It's a very deep topic. And I interviewed you for my film series, The Human Longevity Project. And I remember we interviewed 80, 90 health experts. You were one of them. And I asked this question to many of them, I said, what is aging? And not a single person gave me the same answer. And these are very, very intelligent people who do a lot of work in a lot of different realms in the health sciences. And so that's interesting. It's interesting the fact that we don't have a definition of biological aging. So I actually had to sit and think about that for what that is. And it's really a process. So a lot of the times when we're thinking about aging and anti -aging and longevity, what most people are actually talking about are the effects of, quote unquote, aging, the damage that accumulates over time as a result of aging. We still don't really know what aging is, what causes this process in an organism, be it salamander, a a whale, a tiger, or a human, right? But it's an innate process. So it's built into all these organisms, right? And so there's interesting things when it comes to aging itself. And so without going too deep into that rabbit hole, because we can get lost in that, it's important to recognize that damage is one thing, and aging is another thing. And I think we can slow the rate of aging. In fact, I'm quite confident we can do that. I'm not so confident that we can stop aging altogether. And I'm absolutely convinced that we can't anti -age, right? We can't go backwards. Now, look, we use these terms colloquially, right? You probably use it, I use it, right? And it's okay. But I think what I want to affect here is that the term anti -aging is really damage reversal, right? The ability to sort of turn back the clock from a damage perspective on a cellular level or an organ level. So in a sense, it's like anti -aging, but really, it's just cleaning up some damage. And we're utilizing the repair mechanisms that are built within us. But that's the important distinction is, yes, we can turn on repair. Yes, we can clean up damage. And no, we can't undo whatever aging is and whatever is actually guiding that process. Again, we don't know. Whatever is doing that, I'm confident that we sure as heck can't figure out how to undo that yet. Like that would be like Benjamin Button style, like going backwards and we start getting younger and, you know, in 10 years, I'm now 20 again. Like that is just not going to happen, right? So just want to like lay that framework down because I think it's really important as we have these discussions about longevity, what it is we're really talking about. And I think it is slowing the rate at which one ages and or cleaning up damage that has already accumulated. And we can do that to an extent because we have the mechanisms built within our biology. We have that magic within us. That's what's cool. Yeah, that's really good. I mean, we know that damage is going to happen. It happens to all of us. In fact, actually, it's to some degree, it's necessary. You know, it's a hormetic stressor that creates adaptation and creates a level of resilience with our body. So we know the damage is going to occur. We can't get around that. So then, you know, the other factor is how well we respond and recover. So I've heard the term, you know, healthy aging is really successful adaptations to the stressors that we're under and how successfully we're adapting. Absolutely. And it's a balance, right? Like if we lose this ability to destroy cells to, in other words, create death on a micro level, then we have cancer, right? So so we actually want cells to die. We need cells to die. We need mitochondrion to die, right? And that's a really critical aspect. In fact, there's a lot of longevity researchers that are in the mitochondrial sciences that are in the cancer sciences that are looking at these sort of rates of how much apoptosis do we want? How much autophagy do we want, right? If we have too much of something, it's bad. If we have too much of another thing, it's also bad. So there's a there's a dynamic balance that is always occurring inside the body. And this becomes the art form, if you will, of how do we do this throughout our lives, knowing that this is going to happen. We want it to happen. We want to actually encourage it to happen. And a lot of the things that we look at in the health world, right, when it comes to, again, exercise, sunlight, fasting, certain foods, these are all hormetic stressors, right? In other words, they are damage causing. They are they're innately creating a pressure on the system, right? Some sort of selective pressure, adaptive pressure that the that our organism has the amazing ability to both sense and then and then adapt and modify in order to meet that stressor, right? So that's what's really, really amazing about our human organism. And yet we push it too hard. Then it gets out of this hormetic zone and it gets into the straight damage, right? And yet again, just like if I were, well, actually, it was at the gym a few months ago and sliced my finger up and had to go get stitches and all that, right? And it was like, it looked like it went through a meat grinder. I mean, the nail was hanging off and I'm like, Oh my God. And yet the doc comes in there, throws in like four stitches through the nail bed and all this, but my finger miraculously heals, right? And right now there's a lot of scar tissue in there. So there's, there's some reorganization of the tissue itself, but over time, it's going to go back to a normal finger, like pretty much all the way, right? Like that's remarkable. So we have this intelligence within us. So no matter how much damage we cause, we can almost recover from anything. Like that's, what's really remarkable. And the younger that we are, because there's something important about youth itself, right? The amount of STEM cells we have, the, the, all the growth factors, all the magic that is within a young life form, there's vitality in there. Um, that does wane over time, right? That guy is part of the aging process, but when we sort of make mistakes early in life, we can still come back from them, right? So this is really remarkable. And that's, what's worth acknowledging here is that there's, it's really important to remember that there's an innate intelligence. There's a built in magic to us, right? And to honor that, to respect it and not sort of try to play God in every turn, because it gets us into trouble, right? To really trust the inbuilt humanity is really, really important in this process.
A highlight from SBF Trial: How Sam Bankman-Frieds Lawyers Might Try and Win His Case - Ep. 551
"Very to dangerous call the defendant. However, you may be in a situation where the government puts their case on and you are going to lose. There is no way you're winning. You're only shot as a Hail Mary. Okay, let's put them on. The other side of the coin is it's very powerful when a defendant testifies. It makes it much harder for the jury to convict. They're not dealing with characterizations of a person anymore. They're dealing with that person. They have heard the person speak intimately in a courtroom. And even in cases I've had where a defendant testified, even when the jury ends up convicting, it often takes them longer to get there because it's a harder decision when a human being testifies to them. Starting on Tuesday, October 3rd, the day this episode airs, the world will be watching the criminal trial of the United States versus Sam Bankman -Fried. In this episode, my guests Kayvon Sadeghi and Samson Ensor unpack what it is we're likely to see in the trial, starting with what kinds of potential jurors it is that both the prosecution and the defense will want to deselect from the jury poll this week, why it's even gotten to the point of a criminal trial given that three co -conspirators have already pleaded guilty, what the core of the trial centers around, and why it is, they think, the fact that it involves crypto won't matter. Plus, they explore the effectiveness of one potential defense from Bankman -Fried's side, the so -called advice of counsel defense that says that FTX's own lawyers approved of the company's actions. And finally, they raise the question that everyone will be looking for. Will Sam testify? Hi, everyone. Welcome to Unchained, your no -hype resource for all things crypto.

"With Bloomberg, you get the story behind the story, the story behind the global birth rate, behind your EV battery's environmental impact, behind sand, yeah, sand, you get context, and context changes everything. Go to Bloomberg .com to get context. Bloomberg Business Act, this is Bloomberg Radio. The economy is quite a bit stronger fundamentally than it was in the previous cycle. We're also just in an air pocket of economic uncertainty right now. When you start to get to this position in the cycle, this position of monetary policy stance, the economy just, it only has so much more forward momentum. I think in terms of something breaking, that could still be in front of us. If rates continue to rise the way that they've been rising, eventually there's going to be a financial accident. Eventually something is going to break. This is Bloomberg Surveillance with Tom Kean, Jonathan Farrow, and Lisa Abramowitz. Let's start every show just quoting the 10 -year, 470 .57. Live from New York City this morning. Good morning, good morning. For our audience worldwide, this is Bloomberg Surveillance on TV and radio. Alongside Tom Kean and Lisa Abramowitz, I'm Jonathan Farrow. Your equity markets slightly negative on the S &P 500 on a 10 -year TK, 470 .57. These are markets on the move like yesterday, but different than yesterday. You're getting real confirmation in DXY through 107. The currency's all weaker against a dollar. I did a very careful study. We won't waste time on it this morning, John. We'll do it later. But this dollar strength is tangible. It's not urgent, but it's tangible right now. Dollar index 107, Lisa Eurodollar 104, Dolly Yen getting closer and closer this morning to 150. Yeah, but nobody really wants to test the 150 line in the sand that the Bank of Japan has put out before. I mean, that's essentially why you're seeing this sort of threshold, or that seems to be the implication. I will just note that something that Robert Tipp of PGM Fixed Income said last hour that I thought was really important.

Window Of Time (MM #4577)
"Anyone who drives to work in morning rush hour knows there's a lot of factors that go into just how fast you're getting to work. Are there accidents on the road? What's the weather like? But more importantly, it's that window of time. Yeah, if I leave 10 minutes before 8, I can get there in 20 minutes. But if I leave 10 minutes after 8, it takes me 30 minutes. It's that window. Why? School buses, extra traffic. I've learned that window of time is key to getting to work on time. But it's not as bad as it used to be. Things have changed since COVID. Now, of course, it's been a long time since I had to do rush hour traffic. But in the last year and a half, as I've gotten back to the rush hour grind, I kind of paid attention to those things again. Now, back in the 80s, I did rush hour in Norfolk, Virginia, in Charlotte, North Carolina, kind of some tough towns. I remember in Charlotte, my drive was only 12 miles, but it never took me less than an hour. I don't mind so much because I'm not locked into being at work at a certain time. But it's kind of interesting knowing that window of time plays key into where you're going and how fast you're going to get there.

In the latest Fed Cleveland Fed president Loretta Mester said that the Fed will likely need to raise interest rates one more this time year and she said that rates will need to be held at higher levels for some time to get inflation back to the Fed's two percent target. There's considerable uncertainty around the outlook for example the slowdown in the Chinese economy, the possibility of an extended UAW strike and the potential for a government shutdown later this year all pose some risks around the outlook. So policy decisions are going to need to be guided by actual progress on our dual mandate goals. That's Loretta Mester from Cleveland. Separately Fed Governor Michelle Bowman said that multiple rate hikes may be required to get inflation down and the vice chair for a supervision Michael Barr said that the Fed is likely at or very near a level of interest rates that is sufficiently restrictive.
