A highlight from Congressman Warren Davidson Interview - Crypto Regulations, SEC Gary Gensler Hearing & Subpoena, Bill Hinman Ethereum, CBDCs
"Oh yeah, I mean, I think book Gensler should have been subpoenaed already. I mean, I think the amount of patients that chairman McHenry shown, I mean, maybe that's why he's the chairman. He's like more patient study, kind of working it more diplomatic. Like, yeah, I think the subpoena was due like in February.

Welcome back to the thinking crypto podcast, your home for cryptocurrency news and interviews with me today is Congressman Warren Davidson, who's a Republican out of Ohio, Congressman Davidson. It's great to have you on. Yeah. It's an honor to join you. Thanks. Yeah. Congressman Davidson, I've followed you for years and all the great work you've done with legislation around crypto. I think you were boy was maybe the first, if I, as far as I remember going back to the token taxonomy days and things like that. Uh, but before we get to all that, you know, tell us about yourself, where you're from and where'd you grow up. Yeah. So I grew up in Ohio, um, a little North of where I live now. So, um, graduated high school in the eighties, 88 listed in the army and, uh, got sent over to Germany when the wall Berlin wall was up, you know, the cold war was there and there, uh, wall separating the East and the West went through East Berlin and got to be there when that came down. And, uh, I'll just say like the people on the other side, weren't looking for more government. They were looking for more freedom and it was definitely a life -defining experience. Uh, from there, I got to go to West point, which, so that's not the normal way you go to West point, but, uh, it worked for me and, uh, graduated, went back into the infantry, served in range of regiment, 101st airborne division, uh, the old guard, you know, so some great units, but ultimately decided I needed to get out and go into a business. So my wife and I, and two little kids at that point in time, moved back to Ohio and, uh, started manufacturing companies, went to Notre Dame, got an MBA, and we basically had a little group of manufacturing companies. And that was what I was doing. And John Boehner resigned as speaker of the house. And a couple friends stopped in and said, Hey, you know, who are you going to back in the race? And I said, Hey, you know, you guys are the political people. And they cracked really a joke. They go, you know, it'd be great if there was an army ranger business guy in the race. So we just laughed and I went home and told my wife about my day. And she said, well, what'd you tell them? Like, well, we just laughed. Cause it's crazy. And she said, no, it's not. You'd be great at that. Well, here I am. So that's been like, you know, gosh, over seven years ago now. So it says it's pretty crazy. So in Congress, I got here and very few people knew much, very few elected office holders knew much about crypto. And I was new on the financial services committee and, uh, you know, kind of started that kind of army ranger business guy, the business guy, financial services also on foreign affairs. And, you know, that's, it's been a, it's been an interesting time to be in politics. Right. Oh yeah. Uh, well first thank you for your service. And, uh, it sounds like that wasn't, uh, just an incredible experience you had with the Berlin wall and so forth and being over there. Um, that must've been something, uh, life -changing it sounds like. Oh yeah. And look, I mean, the military offers a great opportunity for so many people. I mean, it's not a perfect fit for everybody for me. I just love that I got to be a part of it and it turned out phenomenally well for me, but it really is, uh, a great, a great thing to do and, you know, a lot of phenomenal people they'd go in and give a portion of their lives in service. And then unfortunately for frankly, some of my friends and others, they give their full life, um, you know, lost in combat or occasionally a training accident or something, but, you know, it's a serious commitment, but it is really cool that I had the chance to do it. Wow. Um, so let's talk about, uh, some of the work you've done in the crypto legislation front, because I remember as far as I can remember, uh, I, the token taxonomy act being maybe the first crypto legislation, and you can correct me if I'm wrong there, but, um, you know, tell us about the history of the different bills and things you've worked on. Yeah. So when I first got to the committee, you know, it was January of 2017 and, you know, you remember 2017 was like the ICO market people like, oh, you know, I could just write a white paper and kind of skip everything. And there were really good use cases, people trying to do things honestly. And then unfortunately there were just some outright pump and dump scams where people were being taken advantage of. And I'm like, where's the sec. You should be cracking down on these scammers and, uh, you know, they weren't really, you know, reacting well. They didn't really know who was going to do what. So there was this void and, you know, I was trying to get hearings on this subject and you, as the new guy, you don't get to choose which hearing. So this goes all the way into 2018. And, uh, we really couldn't get focused as a committee on the issue. Uh, so I was like, well, I can at least have a meeting. I mean, we won't be able to call it a hearing, so we'll have a meeting. And we did this thing at the library of Congress and it started out with a goal of getting about a dozen people together. And by the end, we had to cap it at 50 and like, people were like, oh, I want to send my CEO and I want to send my general counsel on, you know, we had some of the biggest names in, in, uh, not just crypto, but, you know, venture capital, you know, the New York stock exchange fidelity state street, I mean, you name it, any Andreessen Horowitz, you name it, the big players, we also are like, look, we got to have some startup companies and some founders that no one's ever even heard of some of those kind of knowing that still is heard of. They kind of went away. Uh, but a lot of them have really turned into some of the biggest names in crypto over time. And it was just an interesting conversation. So the goal was this listening to everybody and say, well, how, if we're looking at a tree, how far up can we go before everybody's interest starts diverging and branching out in a different way? And we want to kind of go up to that first level of branches and say, this is the consensus. If you solve these things, uh, you could provide a really difference making piece of legislation. So that was the token taxonomy act. Darren Soto, a Democrat from Florida, and I led the bill and man, think how different crypto would be if we had passed that bill in like 2018.
A highlight from 1410: Bitcoin Will Hit $10,000,000 Per Coin - Binance CEO CZ
"In today's show, I'll be breaking down the latest technical analysis. And also I'm going to be sharing with you a 48 ,700 Bitcoin price target, pre halving according to a top analyst. Also did you know it was exactly six years ago today, China tried and failed to ban Bitcoin for the second time and ever since the Bitcoin price action is up 600 % and the mining hash rate is back at all time highs. Also quitting Max Kaiser, Bukele has restored the human rights to 7 million Salvadorians that have been taken away by murderous runts, the British and American state, a 93 % approval rating tells the story of the most popular leader in the world. And now Bukele -nomics is being copied around the world as a blueprint for freedom and justice preach. Also in today's show, Mt. Gox repayments delayed yet again. Creditors are waiting on Bitcoin, Bitcoin cash and Yen payments until next year in 2024. We'll also be discussing, according to this latest report, Coinbase currently holds 5 % of the entire Bitcoin supply in existence. That's right. While Coinbase holds 25 billion in BTC, the exchange only owns around 200 million in Bitcoin and its wallets. We'll also be discussing the catalyst, which will catapult the Bitcoin price action. According to skybridge capitals, Anthony Scaramucci will also be discussing the latest with the Binance CEO CZ setting the record straight on $250 million loan claims. That's right. The US court had recently denied an inspection plea by the SEC. I'll be breaking down this latest FUD and speaking of CZ, the Binance CEO predicts the Bitcoin price will reach $10 million per coin. In fact, a couple of years back in an interview, he said, if all of the major institutions allocate 1 % Bitcoin, we're going to see 1000 X or more growth of the Bitcoin price. And if you run the math, 1000 times today's price action is 26 to $27 million per BTC. We'll also be taking a look at the overall crypto market, all this plus so much more in today's show. Yo what's good crypto fam. This is first and foremost, a video show. So if you want the full premium experience with video, visit my YouTube channel at crypto news alerts .net. Again, that's crypto news alerts .net and welcome everyone just joining us. This is podcast episode number 1410. I'm your host JV and today is September 23rd, 2023. So welcome to another sat stacking Saturday. Let's kick it off with our market watch as we do here each and every day, seven days a week. We can see Bitcoin back in the green trading above 26 .6 and we also have ether back in the green trading at roughly $1 ,600. The market cap is sitting at 1 .06 trillion with roughly 17 billion in volume. In the past 24 hours, we've got Bitcoin dominance at 49 .1 % and the ether dominance at 18 .2 % as Bitcoin continues outpacing Ethereum and checking out the top 100 crypto gainers of the past 24 hours, we've got theta lead in the pack up 7 % trading just under 64 cents followed by rocket pool up 4 % trading at $21 .63, followed by chain link up 4 % trading at $7 .18 and checking out the top 100 crypto gainers of the past week, we have WeMix leading this pack up 15%. We have PLS up 8 .2 % and XRD up 11, I mean 7 .4 % and checking out the crypto greed and fear index, we're currently rated a 47, which is neutral. Yesterday was a 43 in fear, last week also a 43 and last month a 41 in fear. So there you have it. How many of you have been stacking M -Sats and taking advantage of the recent dip in dollar cost averaging? Let me know. And how many of you are anticipating Bitcoin price action to maybe dip a little further south before packing some new positions? Let me know how you feel with the current status. And also just quick reminder, we're almost at the end of September historically, September is the worst month out of the entire year for the Bitcoin price action, but it's always followed by up tober, which is historically one of the most bullish months for Bitcoin. So we only have another week until we get out of September. So we'll see how this is likely to play out. Let's break down today's Bitcoin technical analysis. Bitcoin failed to reclaim 27 ,000, though we came close. It stalled at 26 ,500 as of right now. Meanwhile, the altcoins are in no better shape with minor losses coming from most of the larger cap ones. With Chainlink, the only one with a notable price increase. So last week was expectedly less volatile, aside from the brief spike on Saturday that pushed Bitcoin then to the multi -day peak of 26 ,400. But after failing to continue upwards, Bitcoin retraced at 26 ,000 and spent the rest of the weekend there. Then Monday didn't start all that positively either, but finished the way. Bitcoin went on the offensive and soared above 27 ,000 for the first time in weeks, but then shortly dumped after. But the bulls kept the pressure on and pushed Bitcoin to a new 20 -day peak at 27 ,500 on Tuesday. The next few days were rather calm with Bitcoin maintaining 27 G's, even after the US Fed's decision to stop raising the interest rates. Yet Bitcoin's momentum disappeared by Friday as it fell to 26 ,400. It even tried to bounce off the end of the day, but failed and currently stands at 26 ,500. Its market cap is south of 520 billion, while its dominance over the alts still just inches shy of 49%. So there you have it. And as we mentioned a little earlier, the altcoins, a lot of them are also in the red with the exception of Chainlink, which seems to be outpacing the rest of the major alts. Now for a prediction from Titan of Crypto, here's what he shared on X. Bitcoin 48 ,700 before the halving rocket ship to the moon. You might want to bookmark this one. Fam, never in history the halving occurred without Bitcoin reaching the 78 .6 % Fibonacci retracement level. So first off, first cycle price reached this four months before the halving, and the second cycle it was two months before, and then on the third cycle it was 12 months before. The next halving is now roughly six months away. Bitcoin might reach the 78 .6 % Fibonacci level within this period as it currently lies at 48 ,700, but the million dollar question remains, will this time be different? So as we enter this fourth halving, let me know where you feel the Bitcoin price action is likely to hit before we have liftoff. I mean, obviously that would be a bullish scenario setting us up for a perfect price discovery in 2024 post halving. So I cannot wait. I hope the analyst is right. And if you didn't know, it was exactly six years ago. China tried and failed to ban Bitcoin for the second time because guess what? You can't ban Bitcoin. You can try. Good luck with that. And ever since the price action on the King Crypto is up 600 % and the mining hash rate continues to hit all time highs. And as you know, hash rate is a good indicator for the strength of the network, meaning the market cap is just north of only $500 billion. And as Max points out here, referring to Bukele, he has restored the human rights of 7 million Salvadorans that have been taken away by murderous runts. The British and American state, a 93 % approval rating tells the story, the most popular leader in the world. And now Bukele Nomics is being copied around the world as a blueprint for freedom and justice. Massive shout out to Najib Bukele and the people of El Salvador. Which country do you feel is likely to adopt Bitcoin as a legal tender next? Let me know your honest thoughts in the comments below. I feel it's going to be another Latin American country. I'd say a great candidate for that is Argentina, which has hundreds of millions of people. We have Javier Malay, the pro presidential candidate. There is a 70 % chance plus that he is elected as the president. And we already know the likelihood he could make Bitcoin a legal tender, especially being orange -pilled by Max Keiser, who is the senior Bitcoin advisor for President Bukele. As Max has already announced, he can't wait to touch down in Buenos Aires to orange pill Javier Malay. Then we also have Mexico. We have people like Ricardo Salinas, the third richest man in Mexico, very pro Bitcoin, claiming Bitcoin has been his best investment ever because, again, Max orange -pilled him back in 2014. Then we have Brazil and so many other countries that make Bitcoin a potential to become legal tender. And we all know that's going to be a game changer. And that's just another catalyst on top of the Bitcoin halving scheduled in six months in 2024, plus the approval of a spot Bitcoin ETF in the United States. So can you say fireworks lays ahead? Let's go. Now let's discuss the latest more bullish news, meaning Mt. Gox is going to be delaying these payments, which means no crypto is going to be dumped onto the open market anytime soon, which again is good for the hodlers. Check it out. Now we got Nobuaki, the Mt. Gox trustee in charge of the funds owed to the exchange creditors, updated the public on September 21st, two days ago, according to the trustee, because of the lengthy discussions with specific payment providers, he could not make the October 31st deadline. That was the initial deadline, fam. And because of this reason, the repayments will start next year. And so they say, quitting him here. Therefore, with the permission of the Tokyo district court, the rehabilitation trustee changed the deadline of the base repayment, the early lump sum repayment and the intermediate repayment from October 31st, 2023 Japan time to October 31st, 2024 Japan time, respectively. By the letter of the Kobashi details, the Mt. Gox creditors waited nine years for payments. Good Lord. Currently, they're owed one hundred and forty one thousand six hundred and eighty six BTC plus one hundred and forty two thousand eight hundred and forty six Bitcoin cash and sixty nine is that billion yen. Good Lord. I'd love to know what that equates to in dollars anyways, though the delay has been extended. The creditors who have completed their claims might receive the payment by year's end, quoting them again. Rehabilitation creditors who have provided the necessary info to the rehabilitation trustee will see the payments made in a sequence as early as the end of this year, according to the letter. However, this schedule could change. Kobashi also said that due to the high volume of inquiries regarding the process, the rehabilitation team might not respond promptly. Well, that doesn't sound so promising, but I guess it's a good sign that most of this cash is not going to be dumped off any time soon, as there's a lot of FUD that's always circulating. The Mt. Gox, you know, sell off is going to crash the entire market. I think that is very unlikely and is nothing more than FUD. And again, we're gearing up for the most bullish sentiment in the four year cyclical cycle amongst us in twenty twenty four. So versus being in fear, I would be very optimistic about what's to come for the king crypto and the crypto market as a whole. But what are your thoughts, fam? Let me know in the comments right down below. Now let's discuss the largest crypto exchange in the United States. Clearly, it is Coinbase. The CEO is Brian Armstrong. But did you know, according to this latest report, they currently control and own over five percent of the Bitcoin in circulation. That's pretty hefty. And let's break this one down. And how many of you have used the Coinbase crypto exchange before? Let me know in the comments below. Here we go. Blockchain intelligence platform ARKAM recently identified the crypto exchange Coinbase holds almost one million Bitcoin in its wallets like, whoa, the coins are worth more than twenty five billion dollars at the current prices. Now, according to ARKAM, the exchanges holdings amount to almost five percent of all the existing Bitcoin. ARKAM said Coinbase holds a total of nine hundred forty seven thousand seven hundred and fifty five BTC. And at the moment, Bitcoin circulating supply is around nineteen million four hundred ninety three thousand five hundred thirty seven, according to coin info on CoinGecko. And as ARKAM shared here on X, ARKAM now identified twenty five billion of Bitcoin's Coinbase reserves with one million, approximately Bitcoin on chain. This makes Coinbase the largest Bitcoin entity in the world on ARKAM, with almost five percent of all the Bitcoin in existence, almost as much as Satoshi Nakamoto. Crazy, right? Furthermore, ARKAM noted that it has tagged and identified thirty six million Bitcoin deposits and holding addresses used by the exchange. And according to ARKAM, Coinbase's largest cold wallet holds around ten thousand BTC. And based on the exchanges financial reports, the intelligence company believes that Coinbase has more Bitcoin than are yet labeled and could not be identified. And while Coinbase holds over twenty five billion worth of Bitcoin in its wallets, the exchange only owns around ten thousand of all the Bitcoin in which it holds, which is roughly two hundred million dollars, according to the recent data. Meanwhile, community members express varying reactions to the news about the amount of Bitcoin on the centralized exchange in which they hold. Some believe it's a sign to withdraw their Bitcoin from the exchanges, warning hodlers not to wait until the exchanges start to halt withdrawals. Others say that since there are legitimate concerns over cold wallets, there is no good way to store your assets. I'd like to chime in real quick. Obviously, if it's not your keys, it's not your coins. So while a custodian such as Coinbase can hold your crypto, you've got to also note that it's not yours. So if something were to happen, hypothetically, like we've seen with FTX and the collapse last year, then not your keys, not your coins, they don't belong to you at the end of the day. So you've got to start to weigh the risk reward with having a custodian such as Coinbase or a centralized exchange hold your coins versus taking the responsibility for yourself and learning how to self custody your own crypto and call storage such as with a Bitcoin cold wallet, such as a treasure. So I just wanted to point that out. There's no right or wrong way to hold your crypto. You've got to do what's in your best interest, of course. So, you know, I mean, just want to keep it real at the end of the day. So check it when it comes to Bitcoin ownership by companies, business intelligence for MicroStrategy still owns most Bitcoin. I believe it's over one hundred and fifty two thousand eight hundred BTC, to be exact, worth over four billion dollars at the time of this recording, making them the largest publicly traded company to have Bitcoin on their balance sheet. Now, another major company that controls over six hundred thousand BTC is Grayscale in their GBTC product, the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust, which they just recently had a lawsuit against the SEC with the plan to convert their trust into a spot Bitcoin ETF. So considering they already control the underlying asset in the sum of over six hundred thousand BTC makes them a pretty strong contender. Wouldn't you agree? Let me know your thoughts, fam. And now let's break down our next story of the day and discuss the Bitcoin price likely to catapult along with the altcoin to coin to SkyBridge Capital, Anthony Scaramucci. Let's break this down. Shout out to the Mooch, SkyBridge Capital founder Scaramucci is detailing how one catalyst could have a bullish impact on Bitcoin, as well as the alt. In an interview with the Wolf of Wall Street, Scott Melker Scaramucci says that a spot Bitcoin ETF could be approved in the first quarter of twenty twenty four, which seems to be a ninety five percent likelihood, according to top ETF analyst at Bloomberg, Eric Balchunes. So according to SkyBridge Capital founder, the approval of the spot Bitcoin ETF and the Bitcoin halving, which is expected to occur in April of twenty twenty four, could combine to ignite a crypto bull market. No, it's not. It could combine. It will combine. Just saying. Quitting him here as Wall Street or products on Wall Street are sold, they are not bought. And so there is going to be tens of thousands, if not one hundred thousand plus people at these Wall Street firms selling these products to their traditional investors. So people that are in Bitcoin understand the finite supply of Bitcoin, right? We all know there's a finite limited supply, 21 million, and they understand the nature and the quality the Bitcoin has. This will push Bitcoin up. Of course, it will have a dramatically positive effect on the altcoin market because it will lead to more capital into digital properties so people can think whatever they want. They can think short term about the near term volatility of Bitcoin. But these macro positive factors are overwhelming. And according to Scaramucci, the potential approval of a spot Bitcoin ETF filed by giant asset managers such as BlackRock, who controls over 10 trillion in assets under management and Fidelity, that controls over four and a half trillion in assets under management, can see Bitcoin increasing its market cap by roughly 24 times from the current level. We'll send it. Let's go quoting the Mooch here. It is important that now the largest asset manager in the world who started out with some level of skepticism related to digital assets and Bitcoin is now willing to adopt Bitcoin. I mean, I guess they mean BlackRock is willing to adopt Bitcoin, but even more important than that, they're willing to explain to their clients. I think BlackRock now has 13 trillion dollars in assets under management. So for them, seven trillion for Fidelity. While these numbers are higher than I even imagine, while their clients need exposure to digital property like Bitcoin. And so we have a five hundred billion dollar plus market for Bitcoin. So you and I know gold is at 12 trillion ish, depending on where it's trading. But yes, 12 trillion. There is no reason why Bitcoin couldn't get gold. So there you have it. And to watch this video interview he did with Scott Melker entitled 37000 Bitcoin. Can it skyrocket 35 percent? Check the show notes below the video in the description. And I think we all could agree it's only a matter of time before Bitcoin returns to price discovery mode, virtually meaning entering new all time highs. My personal prediction is sometime in 2024, considering the two biggest catalysts, which we just covered, the Bitcoin halving and Bitcoin ETF approval, which we know is going to be a given, especially considering the SEC is not going to be able to push it back and push back that deadline any longer because, you know, they just they have been pushing it back now for 10 years while they continue to approve futures ETFs, which can allow them to spoof and manipulate the market, which is all by design. At the end of the day, there's not new under the sun and three things cannot be long hidden. The sun, the moon and the truth. But just saying. Anyways, fam, now let's discuss the ongoing fight against CZ, the finance CEO with this 250 million dollar loan. And then I'll be breaking down his 10 million dollar price prediction and in fact sharing a transcription of him claiming that Bitcoin can thousand X from the current price, which would ultimately mean not 10 million, but we're talking twenty six to twenty seven million dollars per coin. Let's break this down. So here we go. First, with the FUD, the Binance CEO, CZ Shangping Zhao had refuted a recent report alleging that he received the 250 million dollar loan from BAM Management, the company that serves as the holding entity for Binance US. Now, how many of you have used Binance US or Binance before as the exchange? Let me know, fam. The development comes amidst Binance's struggles with plunging trading volume as the world's largest crypto exchange faces mounting lawsuits and increased scrutiny, regulatory which seems to all be by design by the SEC and the regulators. Right. The report published by Decrypt September 19th drew its conclusions from court documents associated with the ongoing lawsuit involving Binance and the United States. SEC, according to the news agency's interpretation, the Binance US legal representatives asserted in the documents that BAM Management US Holdings had issued a quarter billion dollar convertible note to CZ back in December. CZ, however, challenged the accuracy of the report when he tweeted the following. The amount of wrong information is just they got the direction wrong. I loaned 250 million dollars to BAM a while back, not the other way around, and have not taken it back. The Binance CEO clarified that the loan arrangement was, in fact, the opposite of what was reported in the post. The exec explained that he had extended a 250 million dollar loan to BAM Management and asserted that he had not yet received the payment. So there's nothing new under the sun. Just more FUD, it seems like, fam. The legal battle has taken a toll on Binance US, which saw a flurry of employee departures. The US SEC alleged that Binance was not cooperating in the ongoing probe and even claimed that BAM refused to make essential witnesses available for deposition. Concerns were also raised on CEFFU, which happens to be a custody service offered by Binance's international arm, Binance Holdings Ltd. The SEC's filing claimed that the platform appeared to be in violation of a previous agreement designed to prevent the transfer of the assets abroad. And despite the scathing attacks by the financial regulator, Binance scored a small win this week. The SEC's motion to approve an inspection into Binance US was denied by the USDC District Judge, Zia Farokhia. So there you have it. I mean, the ongoing FUD will more than likely continue, as obviously Binance is the largest crypto exchange in the world and regulators seem to have a problem with them and want to go after them for whatever apparent reason. So, like I said, hopefully in the end, you know, truth is revealed and the real story versus all the FUD and, you know, the manipulation of the price action and all the shenanigans we continue to witness in the market. And with that being shared, now let's dive into the Binance CEO, CZ and his 10 million dollar price prediction, as well as him predicting that Bitcoin price action could even a thousand X from here, sending the Bitcoin price parabolic to 26 or even 27 million dollars per coin. Let's break this baby down, shall we? Here we go. JV, have you ever heard of him? A crypto YouTube influencer from Crypto News Alerts remembered CZ's prediction. You're damn right I did. The Bitcoin would reach 10 million per coin. JV referred to the statement in a recent video uploaded on YouTube where he analyzes various aspects of the Bitcoin market development. Now, JV looked back at CZ's Bitcoin prediction while analyzing the Bitcoin CEO's recent Twitter comments. And in a Q &A session on July 5th, CZ addressed several issues, including Binance's reaction to the ongoing regulatory scrutiny. He also spoke about the rising interest of institutional investors in crypto currencies, as well as the proposed BlackRock spot Bitcoin ETF. CZ made the 10 million dollar price prediction back in 2021. In fact, I have the article already pulled up and I'm going to be reading word for word what he shared. Following MicroStrategy's announcement, allocating Bitcoin for the corporate strategy, CZ based his analysis on the possibility of several corporate companies, major institutions across the world, allocating just one percent of their corporate treasury into Bitcoin. And according to CZ, that would lead to a thousand X growth in the value of BTC. JV highlighted CZ's welcoming approach to institutional investors in the Bitcoin ecosystem, and CZ noted that advantages in traditional finance firms they bring to the crypto industry, despite concerns about their intentions clashing with Bitcoin's decentralized nature. And according to JV, CZ identified two key factors driving Binance's strategy for the next 18 months. They include the upcoming Bitcoin halving event now less than six months out, as well as, you know, we could be seeing a Bitcoin ETF here in the near future. The Bitcoin community expects the next halving to occur in April of 2024. Now quoting CZ word for word from the initial interview he made on Bloomberg Radio predicting a potential 1000 X increase in the Bitcoin price action. So here's what he had to say. Right now, I think only 11 companies again, this is right around the time that MicroStrategy announced putting Bitcoin on its balance sheet. They announced having allocating some talking about Bitcoin, like usually less than one percent of their corporate treasury to Bitcoin. And we think that it is most likely what caused the initial price rise. I think MicroStrategy's Michael Saylor started it first, but there are six hundred and fifty thousand companies in the world, like relatively established companies in the world, and their treasury is huge. Preach. So if all of them talking about these major institutions only allocated just one percent to Bitcoin, we are going to see, I don't know, 1000 X more growth in the Bitcoin price. And if they allocate more than one percent, then it's going to be even bigger. So I think people don't quite get the magnitude of the wave that is about to hit us. Now, let's run that math one more time. Fam, today's price is roughly twenty six thousand five hundred times that by one thousand. He's talking about a twenty six and a half million dollar Bitcoin price action. The potential if they only put one percent of their strategic reserves into Bitcoin, you do the math. If it's five X and five percent, what are we talking? One hundred and twenty million dollar Bitcoin price. Just saying this is coming from CZ, the world's richest man in crypto. So very powerful words indeed. Let's get back to this prediction of what he shared. So the finance CEO estimates that the flagship crypto can go up anywhere from nineteen hundred percent to twenty thousand percent from the current price levels from the time he made the prediction. And he goes on to share with price predictions. It is really, really difficult. I think it can go to, I don't know, one million dollars, ten million dollars. It is very hard to tell. And again, if we literally did a thousand X from today's price, we're talking twenty six and a half million per BTZ. So CZ also reveals that the exchange is onboarding new users as an at an unprecedented sustained rate during the bull run, outpacing its user growth during the twenty seventeen bull run. So again, this was during the twenty twenty one bull run. Here's what he had to share. Just to give people the idea, in twenty seventeen, when Bitcoin hit the peak of about 20 G's, we were seeing three hundred thousand new registered users per day. And that only happened for a couple of days. And that kind of trailed off and became slower. Now we're seeing sustained new user registrations above the peak and sustained like for over two to three months. So could you imagine running the world's largest crypto exchange and having over three hundred thousand new registered users every single day for like 90 days straight? That is insanity. And that's the previous market. I think twenty twenty four is likely going to outpace the previous market as Bitcoin becomes a common household name and as Bitcoin game theory continues in full effect. You have presidential candidates making Bitcoin a big determining factor. We have people like Ron DeSantis, Kennedy Jr., Javier Malay over in Argentina. So naturally, it's just going to create more commotion and positive catalysts for Bitcoin as we move forward into twenty twenty four. So, I mean, fireworks are ahead. Let me know how you feel. We're likely to finish out this year by December of twenty twenty three. Where do you feel the Bitcoin price action is likely to be?

A highlight from ANTI BITCOIN BOB MENENDEZ CHARGED! SEC GARY GENSLER DOESN'T LIKE THE LAW (CRYPTO NEWS)

If you're listening on a podcast platform such as Spotify, Apple or Google, please leave a five star rating and review. It supports the podcast and it doesn't cost you anything. Well, folks, we got very interesting news, which I'm sure many of you may have heard in the mainstream media, and that is Senator Bob Menendez has been charged with bribery and a whole bunch of other crimes. And you may say, well, Tony, why are you talking about this? Right. Well, folks, Senator Bob Menendez, who is a Democrat, he introduced a bill back in 2022, which would help to stop Bitcoin adoption in El Salvador. And he was citing that the adoption would open the door for money laundering and corruption. Wow. Talk about hypocrisy, folks, right? This guy all along for a very long time, his track record, he's been accused of doing a lot of shady stuff and now he's being charged here. The folks at Bitcoin Archive said the senator who said Bitcoin can open the doors of corruption in El Salvador was just indicted for corruption by federal prosecutors who seized one hundred thousand dollars in gold bars and four hundred and eighty thousand dollars in hidden cash from his home. So politicians those who are often very loud and screaming against crypto are the ones who have a lot to lose and a lot to hide, who are probably doing shady stuff. For example, Elizabeth Warren, Brad Sherman, Gary Gensler, right? I'm sure they've got some really nasty stuff in their closet. And some folks have shown that Elizabeth Warren has a net worth of seventy three million dollars. And of course, her salary is just like two hundred and eighty thousand a year. That's a great amount of wealth she's accumulated from just a senator's salary, right, folks? But we know the game, right? This is why we got to keep fighting and we got to expose these corrupt bureaucrats and politicians like Elizabeth Warren and Brad Sherman. We know they are puppets on the string doing a lot of the bidding of the tradfi incumbents and people who would love to kill crypto and not just even kill crypto, but just stop or kill the startups and allow their banking buddies and Wall Street buddies to come in and take over. So I'm glad these folks are getting exposed. And President Nayib Bukele, who, of course, he's the president of El Salvador, he tweeted about this news. He said, this is the guy that called for an investigation against us. He ended up being charged, period. So I'm glad he's doing a victory lap there. Now we got some interesting news about a library in the SEC. So we had reported just about a week and a half ago or two weeks ago that library was going to file an appeal. And this is based on the Ripple lawsuit outcome. Right. It makes sense. We have new case law with XRP, so it makes sense for them to appeal. And the First Circuit Court of Appeals in Boston has directed library to file its brief by November 1st, 2023. Now of course, this is no guarantee they're going to win. But the point is, we want to put the pressure on the SEC and Gary Gensler. We want to expose them for their lies, hypocrisy and much more. So I'm glad library is doing this. Attorney Jeremy Hogan highlighted a video here with Gary Gensler being interviewed. And it just shows his hypocrisy that he doesn't care about the law. He just cares about his own power and his next job. And it's no wonder Judge Sarah Netburn said the SEC has no faithful allegiance to the law. So he says the crypto space is full of hucksters and noncompliance. Well, the reporter asked them, would anything a court says change your mind? Great question. Gensler said, well, no, not really. And of course, he looked very shaky. He's losing confidence. And Attorney Jeremy Hogan said, you can't make this stuff up. So clearly, this man has no respect for the law. He's just making things up as he goes. It's about his show, his power, his ego. And we can't have that, folks. This guy's supported by our tax dollar. He should be kicked to the streets. And I'm telling you, I hope that Coinbase mops the floor with his buffoon and the SEC so that he has so much pressure on him. He's forced to resign. I'm hoping that happens. Now, Stuart Aldarati highlighted that same video. And here's what he had to say. What's most concerning to me and should be to you in the full video clip, this is the shocking admission of an unelected bureaucrat that he won't respect the decisions of the courts. So I'm thankful for the judicial branch and the balances we have in the government that a corrupt scumbag regulator like Gary Gensler, as much as he can go around saying all kinds of nonsense and nasty stuff, he has to respect the courts in a sense of what they put out there. Right. The SEC has to abide by that. Now, he may not personally agree, and he can, you know, like in this interview, say, oh, no, I don't agree with anything. But at the end of the day, if he takes a loss, he takes a loss. Right. So we got to keep fighting. I'm hoping the industry keeps fighting back as well. Now, quick word from our sponsor, and that is Uphold, which is a great crypto exchange that I've been using since twenty eighteen. I've interviewed their CEO and many representatives so I can vouch for this platform. They have ten plus million users, two hundred and fifty plus crypto currencies, and they're available in one hundred and fifty countries. You can also trade precious metals and thirty seven fiat currencies so you can switch between these different currencies and crypto and precious metals at a click of a button. So it's a unique platform and they've been around for a long time. Once again, I can vouch for this platform. So if you'd like to learn more, please visit the link in the description. All right. Let's move ahead. Caitlin Long was at Mainnet and she was tweeting out some of the statements coming out of Mainnet. I was at Mainnet yesterday and I met her. I tweeted out a photo of us together. I was supposed to go on Wednesday as well, but I wasn't feeling too hot. So stayed home that day. But, you know, there was a lot of folks there. And Brian Armstrong, CEO, was there. He said the Biden administration has been terrible for crypto. Well, that's to say the least, right? That's an understatement. They've been horrendous, in my opinion. Caitlin also highlighted that 61 percent of pro -crypto voters actually this is she's highlighting what Chris Lee Hain had to say, that 61 percent of pro -crypto voters in 2020 voted for Biden. Democrats are at risk of losing them in 2024 due to anti -crypto policy. Absolutely right. And these Democrats are shooting themselves in the foot. Patrick Hanson of Circle highlighted the following, that the euro stablecoin, obviously Circle issues USDC, but they also have the euro stablecoin and it's now EURC instead of EUROC. So just an update there. So the euro coin is now EURC. So just heads up on that, folks. And I want to highlight something I tweeted out today, and I think it's important. And, you know, all emotions aside, all feelings aside, I was highlighting that I'm very bullish on Ethereum for the 2024 -2025 bull market. Now this is, once again, all emotions and feelings about Bill Hinman and Joe Lubin aside, I still want those guys to be held accountable. But as for the token and the code, it's getting adoption. And I highlight that PayPal is building their stablecoin in Ethereum, right, PYUSD, Citibank's token is built on Ethereum. JP Morgan is working on a deposit token, which is built on Onyx, which is a permissioned version of the Ethereum blockchain. Coinbase is obviously launching base, which is their layer two for Ethereum, or they have launched it, I should say. And there's a rise in institutional ETH staking. So I'm very bullish on ETH and this type of news, these facts now, not my feelings, not my opinions, but these facts of adoption from very big companies and brands has me very bullish on Ethereum. I obviously hold ETH in my portfolio. I stake it and I continue to buy the dip, not financial advice. You should do your own research. And obviously I'm not just bullish on ETH alone, but just there's been a lot of adoption. And I want to highlight that because it's about facts, not feelings now. And I'm bullish on Bitcoin, XRP, Chainlink and many other tokens. Let's talk about Core Scientific, which is a Bitcoin mining company. So Core Scientific sealed $77 million Bitmain deal for 27 ,000 Bitcoin mining rigs. The deal was first finalized in August with Anchorage as another party agreeing to an equity stake in the bankrupt crypto miner. So one of the key things is that BlackRock also gave them a bit of money. Guys, this was back in 2022. So it's kind of like to the Victor goes to spoils where Bitmain was in trouble and then a whole bunch of folks started coming in to grab up as much as they can. So the deal between the two mining companies will see Bitmain supply 27 ,000 Bitcoin mining rigs for $23 million in cash, along with $53 .9 million worth of common stock of the bankrupt firm. Apart from the mining hardware purchase deal, Bitmain and Core Scientific have signed a new hosting agreement to assist Bitmain's mining operations. The deal was finalized in August when a court filing highlighted Bitmain's plan to sell mining hardware in exchange for cash and equity. As part of Core Scientific's restructuring plan, apart from Bitmain, the restructuring plan also included Anchorage. And you guys may have seen my interview recently with the president of Anchorage and the co -founder of Anchorage, Diego Monica. If you haven't seen that, be sure to check it out. It says here, restructuring plan also included Anchorage, BlockFi and mass mutual asset finance. Apart from Anchorage, all other three firms chose a mix of cash and equity options to settle their claims. The expansion investment plan by Bitmain will come into force by the fourth quarter of 2023, pending approval from a judge. Once approved, the hardware will potentially add 4 .1 exahashes to Core Scientific's hash rate. The two crypto mining companies all have also agreed to work together to upgrade Bitmain's last generation miners hosted at Core Scientific's data centers to further increase the firm's productivity. So, folks, Core Scientific, I will be potentially interviewing the new CEO and I'll let you guys know when that's coming up. But I want to definitely get into the details here and what BlackRock is doing with them in addition to Bitmain. So I'll definitely be asking those questions once I get the interview locked in. But, you know, a lot of companies are preparing for the Bitcoin mining next year. And many of you may have seen my interview uploaded earlier today with Fred Thiel, who's the CEO of Marathon Digital Holdings, and Marathon is working with a sovereign wealth fund. So, folks, there's going to be a lot of capital coming to the market. You're going to see a rise in demand for Bitcoin as the spot ETFs get approved, especially around, you know, BlackRock spot ETF and Fidelity and so forth. So I'm very bullish, you know, like I've been saying, we are in quantitative tightening, fighting inflation, rates are high, but this will end right as it has historically boom and bust cycles. The Fed will eventually start its QE again. They're going to start printing money, global liquidity will go back up and we'll be back in a bull market. We just have to be patient, dollar cost average where possible. And, you know, don't look at the price every day because you'll drive yourself crazy. And, you know, it's very volatile. Sometimes it's moving sideways. It's very boring. And I know that's tough. But just, you know, take your positions, obviously do your research, take your positions and just be patient and then, you know, watch what these players are doing. Right. Not so much the price, but watch what the players like this are doing, who's investing, who's building, who's raising capital and much more. So that's what I'm looking at. And that's why I build this podcast to share the news, because, you know, this is not going to make mainstream news. This is not going to be on CNBC, Fox or CNN or whatever it is. Right. And a lot of people are not paying attention. But I'm glad I'm here early. If you are here early, pat yourself on the back because there's going to be billions of people coming in buying Bitcoin and other crypto at a premium and they're going to go to BlackRock and whoever else. Right. But you and I are on the side of smart money. We are on the side of BlackRock. We are on the side of Fidelity. Right. Accumulating the lows. And then when the bull markets come back, then, you know, the herds, the herd who watch Jim Cramer and listen to Jim Cramer will go by. And that's when I'll be taking profits. And I'm sure many of you as well. So once you understand the market cycles, both for stocks, even real estate and obviously crypto, you know, you can make money, folks. And that's what I had to learn. I had to unlearn the mainstream media finance and listening to Jim Cramer and all these things. Right. And study the charts and understand the market cycles and know when to buy and when to sell, because all those things, you have to be a contrarian. Right. You've got to go against your emotions. You've got to go against the herd mentality. And that's hard if, you know, all your life you've been trained to go with the herd. Right. From television and media and all these things, you have to unlearn that. And once you get it, boy, it's pretty sweet. Right. To be able to make a nice return, make nice money. And obviously you've got to diversify. I diversify into different tokens, into stocks. I've often tweeted and sometimes shared, you know, my positions. Recently, I told you guys I bought PayPal because Jim Cramer said to sell PayPal. So I bought PayPal. Right. I know it's not going to be some quick flip. It may I see I may see some nice returns by next year and that's OK. I a am patient investor looking to build wealth for me and my family. So anyway, guys, that's my approach. Let me know what you think. I would love to hear what you guys think about this news. Leave your thoughts and comments below. Hit the thumbs up button.

A highlight from "DO NOT Buy Bitcoin Now! Here's WHY..." | Gareth Soloway
"I'm back and we're one day before the FOMC Bitcoin still at 27 ,175 now Gareth says Gareth Soloway He says that Bitcoin can get back to $30 ,000 But then he also says that even though Bitcoin can get back to 30 ,000. He wouldn't actually buy it. Listen to this Now interestingly enough, let's talk about how high can price rally right? So, I mean, let's let's talk about it So if you're someone who's saying wow, do I buy Bitcoin now? Honestly the answer is no now But he does think you can go back to to $30 ,000 So listen, what we're gonna do is we're gonna get Gareth on the show a bit later on He's gonna talk to us about what he meant when he said he thinks Bitcoin can go back to 30 ,000 level But he wouldn't actually be buying Bitcoin right now and that's ahead of the FOMC now. Remember it's a big FOMC why because we haven't heard from Jerome Powell since the 25th and 26th of July, so we haven't heard anything from Jerome Powell since the 25th and 26th of July and Remember that since the 21st and 26th of July we've had two very big inflation readings So the big question is what is Jerome Powell going to do tomorrow? Is he going to engineer a soft landing that is one thing that he could be doing or or or is he going to Fly the plane like that plane that got lost I think what we need to do is we need to spend some time talking about this because honestly Honestly, honestly, honestly I Mean, how can anyone? Lose an 80 million dollar plane even the Biden administration. Like how can you lose an 80 million dollar plane? No one can lose an 80 million dollar plane. Not even the Biden administration So this we've got a lot to talk about today. We're also gonna talk about finance We're gonna talk about finance in the SEC. They did go to court yesterday There was a little bit of FUD that came out of the court case yesterday Usually as you know, I don't really pay attention to the finance FUD But this time it's coming from the same people that warned me about Celsius and they were right So I took the side of Celsius and they were right So as I said, I don't usually pay attention to finance FUD because I think it's like usually just bat And I think there's too much finance FUD But I do think we need to talk about what came out of the hearing yesterday. So listen, I'm back We've got a huge show today one day before the FOMC. Let's go guys I Mean we have to laugh we have to laugh Not only did they lose a plane But then like to make matters worse they want us to help them Find the plane now. I mean, this is a true story They lost an 80 million dollar plane and they want us to help them find a plane That's the type of discussion that I usually have with James like I lost the soundboard James. Where's the soundboard? I lost it on the way to work. Anyway, we'll talk we'll talk about the plane later. There's a lot to talk about Listen guys, I'm back. I'm back in the studio. We've got a lot to discuss today Got a big show ahead of the the FOMC Also, I want to talk to a little bit about Asia I want to talk to you about Binance I want to talk to you about altcoins because we are getting bounces in the altcoins as you can see right here on the bubbles But it seems like it's stuff going up one day and down the next day Which means that there's no new capital coming in we know that and what that also means is that we're getting Asset money rotation between between one place or another and then also as a city later on gathers Garrett's coming on the show So we've got a lot to talk about we're a lot we're gonna be here together But let's talk about remember if you haven't yet subscribed the channel help us because one of the things that I realized in Singapore Was the bigger our channel the bigger the guests we can get on the channel the more attention they pay their pay to us And so when you guys subscribe to this channel when you like this content And we get the content out there and you subscribe to the channel That helps the channel grow that helps us bring more bigger guests onto the channel. That's why we need you I'll bring you the highest alpha per minute show in the world every single day and You will just like the content and then everything's fine. Everything works. It's a symbiotic relationship. Anyway, let's talk about Where we are right now Let's go to the charts what we can see when we look at the charts is that Bitcoin is above 27 ,200 one day before the FOMC meeting now, I heard rumors earlier That the reason why Bitcoin was actually rising is because the mount gox trustee may be forced to delay the distribution of the mount Bitcoin 2024 till that was actually written up by the blocks I heard the rumors much earlier today and then the block wrote something about it They're saying Bitcoin bounce may be due to mount gox delay rumors, but still targeting 22 ,000. That's a fan manager called QCP bitcoins price is largely due to rumors of delay that mount gox may drag their payments into 2024 that's actually exactly what I heard earlier today. So it could be that we may not be getting the mount gox Bitcoin hit in the market. Now you ask yourself. Why would that happen? So you very simply why would that would happen mount gox was hacked in 2014 this this this story took place in 2014 The liquidator like the FTX liquidator earns money on The longer this drags out the more the liquidator and it's almost like think about it like a lawyer Okay so the more this thing drags out the more money that the liquidator makes and it looks like the liquidator is going to continue to Pressure the side of the year now, let's go back to the charts because I want to show you something back on the chart So then if you remember but Kyle dupes said something very interesting. He said look when we get this death cross What will happen after the death crosses, but Bitcoin will go down But then Bitcoin will go up back to the price of where the death cross happened, which is twenty seven thousand seven hundred so so far Kyle's little I don't know if you want to call it a prediction is is actually playing out and playing out exactly like said Gary says we can actually go even to 30 ,000. I actually think that both of them are wrong I think that we may at some point soon this year this this month this year We will break that 30 ,000 everyone. I've been saying it for a while I don't know if you remember but I did say at the beginning of September when everybody was completely bearish about Bitcoin and everyone said oh September's gonna finish down because it finishes down every single September. I said no guys I think September's gonna finish up so far. I'm up five point five two percent So so far it feels to me like like like like I'm gonna look I'm gonna Get this but you must realize what's actually happening here James. What what's for lunch? Scacra doesn't talk but he's chewing here. I can hear the chewing going in my one ear and out and out over there Anyway, what we are seeing here is you need to look at the open interest on Bitcoin and what you realize is that the open? interest is just Completely tracking the price which means that price goes up open interest goes up price goes down open interest goes down That's what's going on here, which means it's just short term Ups and downs so to speak that are happening in the market and it's not real volume or real buying coming in So we still I'm still not convinced that this is the pump that's gonna take us over 30 ,000 But I am convinced that bitcoins gonna go north of 30 ,000 end of September Maybe even early October and I think shaldino shares the same the same sentiment as me because he's just opening lungs and lungs and Lungs and you should I think today you opened another long on the show. Did you guys did you guys watch Sheldon show today? scarecrows Scarecrows don't talk but the children open along yes or no scarecrows He opened us a line along. Okay, so say he did open a lot the guys got big big big kahunas I think the same thing was happening with alts when I look at the alt coins It looks like we're just getting a shift from one old coin to another old coin So yesterday roll, but was up today roll, but is down yesterday rune was up today rune is down and that's exactly what's happening There's no big moves. Let's just quickly check on the one hour time frame. No big moves. No big moves in all coins it's basically just a rotation of Many the good thing is that the fundamentals of Bitcoin and I said I don't say this likely but the fundamentals of Bitcoin have actually Never ever ever been stronger and what I mean when I say the fundamentals of Bitcoin have never been stronger So there's two parts of the fundamentals. The one part of the fundamental is the research So what does the research say? What are the fundamentals behind it? The other part of the fundamentals is something that is unique to Bitcoin and unique this asset class Which is the on -chain data because if you look at other asset classes, they don't really have on -chain data Bitcoin has on -chain data So, you know like when we say fundamentals we can actually just go to the chain and we can just say look Well, what is it? What does the chain say? What is the the data on chain say and here this is where it gets a little Bit exciting so it gets very exciting. The first thing is long -term The supply held by long -term holders up to the highest that it's ever been so you can see the percentage Supply that is held by long -term holds the Bitcoin never ever ever been higher that is Also evident here where you can see that 80 % of all Bitcoin have not moved in the last six months so what we're seeing here is long -term holders keep growing and then when they lot they hold they They hold for forever because it hasn't moved for more than six months What we also see is we see the short -term holders have been capitulated. They're out of the market. We don't see them anymore They were here. They they were good tourists and then we said bye -bye and they were just sending their money back to exchanges When I look at the unchain The unchain data right now and I said I don't say this lightly the unchain data right now looks the most positive that's ever been because the coins are sitting with the people who ain't gonna sell the Coins and when I say anchor solid coins, they holding the coins for for six months plus The sentiment is also very good. And I saw this tweet by Chris Paniski and he He shares the same sentiment that I shared in Asia He was struck by how incredible and what the buzz is that happened in a token 2049. You can see his his These guys are killing my ears Thanks guys. Thanks for thanks for destroying my eardrums. I used to have eardrums now they're gone Anyway, that's his version of what happened at token 2049, but he's been around for a while He says contrasting token 25 20 49 to the first bear market conference. I went to inside Bitcoin in April 2015 the worlds are completely different and that's true because Even though from a pricing point of view, we're in a bear market I'm gonna show you something very very very interesting about where we are in the market The other thing that's happening now, which we haven't seen in Bitcoin for for for a long time Since I got into Bitcoin people have been promising me that the institutions are coming into Bitcoin. It's always been the narrative It's like look we've got to prepare ourselves got to prepare us off Because you know what the institutions are coming in when the institutions come in The price of it coins gonna go to the moon and every time the institutions never came in They launched a Bitcoin futures and bang the the price collapsed So I've always been hearing since I got you That the institutions are coming into Bitcoin when the institutions come into Bitcoin They're gonna bring all the money with him But it's been this letdown because it like as much as I've been hearing about it The institutions just haven't come but they just didn't arrive now the institutions are undoubtedly undoubtedly undoubtedly here So we have got Citibank. They are now Unveiling their own Separate blockchain which is going to which which they're going to start piloting you got this is old news But you got the LSE looking to tokenize assets in the line the stock exchange As your as you will recall if you saw my video about token 2049 in Singapore I thought hey said big bull market he predicts and if you go watch that video see what he said But he basically how he breaks down why the bull market is gonna happen in 2024 he also breaks down that AI is gonna be the narrative that's gonna lead it and then he says, okay Well, then you need to you need to be buying file coin Then a German banking giant will be able to hold a number of crypto currencies for its clients So you can see what's going on here. You can see exactly what's going on Yeah, this industry is becoming more and more institutional Deutsche Bank one step closer to launching a digital asset custody service You've got Japanese banking giant Nomura launching a Bitcoin adoption fund for institutional investors You see what's going on here the institutionals the institutions are here are finally actually getting here but we are in a very very very unique time now because this is What Michael Saylor described when I interviewed Michael Saylor last time you'll remember it if you watch the Michael Saylor discussion This is what he said about where we are now about the unique time that we are now in In the cycle able to pick up the phone and call your broker and buy 50 million dollars worth of it Right. So we're at that stage where we know it's coming but We really haven't plugged Wall Street into the asset yet We're in this in between period which in my opinion is the best time to be it's like, you know the future No one else can act on it. If you if you have a crypto account with a crypto Exchange to buy Bitcoin right now So so you hear what he's saying he's saying if you we know they're coming they just it's like it's like it's like this Imagine a concert, you know, the concerts gonna start everyone's waiting at the door, but the gates aren't open yet You know when the gates open everyone's gonna come in and go to the car the concert you have the inside information But they can't act because the doors are still closed. That is where we are. Now. The institutions are coming in this morning I saw that blockchain capital Which is one of the original og funds in crypto, these are like, you know, these are two brothers original og og og funds in crypto raised 400 and say five hundred and eighty million dollars for two new funds now if you read where did they get their money from? most of the firm's limited partners are traditional institutional investors including University endowments So they've got five hundred and eighty dollars from all of these sovereign wealth funds and guys I mean if you were here in 2017 and you were here in 2018 and you were here in 2019 and notice it you look You know in next year or in two years time you're gonna get five hundred and eighty million dollars Given to two brothers in the United States Who have got a good track record and the money's gonna be given to them by institutional university By university endowment private foundations the writing's all over the world. All you have to do is You just have to Act because it's inevitable. It's completely completely completely inevitable And I know like a lot of you may may be sitting here and going yeah But you're not crypto is full of scams and you know, you know We spoke about keeping our customers happy and how every time we get the big names in crypto coming into our into our industry We destroy them, etc, etc You need to remember that every single technology goes through the cycle and I want to read you something which I saw earlier today which made me smile and and again affirm that I was in the right direction so Visa seemed like a disaster when it was first launched the kind of people who attack new things would have been all over it from From the Wikipedia article it says listen to it says they're talking about visa However, the program was riddled with problems as Williams who had never worked in a bank's loan department had been too earnest and trusting in His belief in the basic goodness of the bank's customers and he resigned in December 1959 22 % of the accounts were delinquent not the 4 % expected the police departments around the state were confronted by numerous incidents of of a brand new crime called credit card fraud Both politicians and journalists joined the general uproar against Bank of America and its new fangled credit card Especially when it was pointed out that the card holder agreement held customers liable for all charges even those resulting from fraud Bank of America officially lost eight point eight million dollars in on on the launch of Bank of America card But when the full cost of advertising and overheads were included the bank actually lost around 20 million dollars I mean if you change the word credit card there and you replaced it with the word blockchain you'd say hell them This is exactly what's going on here.
A highlight from Top 3 Quick Tips to Stop Sugar Cravings
"Are hidden toxins and stressors making you feel run down and tired, worried about oxidative stress from exposure to EMF, 5G, heavy metals, chemicals, processed foods, and the like? You see, in our modern world, toxic is the new normal. No matter how health -conscious you try to be, the truth is that every single day, you're being bombarded by harmful toxins and stressors. When left to roam free, these toxins take on the form of something called free radicals. Free radicals promote an unhealthy inflammatory response and contribute to oxidative damage on a site or level, basically like the rusting of metal or the browning of an apple that potentially leads to premature aging, a lower quality of life, and a range of health problems. However, there is good news. Antioxidants are crucial in combating free radicals and keeping you on track, and one of the most powerful antioxidants known to man is glutathione. Glutathione fights free radicals and molecules that cause cellular damage while repairing DNA and flushing out toxins. But here's the thing. Not all glutathione supplements are created equal. If you're taking glutathione in capsule or tablet form, you're missing out on key nutrients as they will simply pass through your body without being absorbed. You can thank your stomach acid for that. However, our friends over at Pureality Health have a patented formula that utilizes something called My Cell Liposomal Technology, which delivers the nutrients into your bloodstream proven to be 800 percent more efficient.

If you're looking to come off of sugar, then these three key tips are going to be absolutely critical to get results in the end, the sugar cravings. And so the first big tip is just a mindset shift to where you're saying I am worth it for many individuals. And this may or may not resonate with you. That's OK. Many of us really we have these self sabotaging thoughts and behaviors and oftentimes we're tired and we get this idea, hey, it would feel really, really good right now to have this sugar, to have the ice cream, to have whatever it is that you're craving. And you've got to remind yourself, I am worth more than that, that I am worth getting results and I am worth ending these cravings and I will not be enslaved a to craving, a flesh desire in this case. And so, you know, it's great to be able to enjoy good food. And the cool thing is when you're following a low carb, high healthy fat diet, when you're following a healthy diet, there's many great foods and great flavors that you get a chance to enjoy. But you are worth so much more than falling victim and being enslaved to cravings for sugar, processed foods and junk. So you want to shift it. You want to say I am worth it. And you also want to link pain to those foods. Literally, like if you crave, I don't know, Ben and Jerry's ice cream or, you know, some sort of, you know, I don't necessarily want to want to say anything bad about their brand, but some sort of processed food. Just whenever you think of that food, link it to pain that you may experience in your body, whether it's, you know, a mental, emotional thing like a relational problem, like your anger, like your anxiety. It could be a pain in your knees or in your back, or it might be the rashes. We might be rashes that you have on your skin or digestive problems. Link it to that problem, experience and feel the pain of living in that problem and link it in your mind to that food. And then you'll feel, hey, you know what? I don't want to go down that that trail. I don't want to go down that track and you'll make better choices.

Recovered Food Addict Erin K. Reflects on Her Sugar-Coated Childhood
"Today on the podcast, we are welcoming Erin Kay, who identifies as a food addict. Welcome Erin and thank you for being a guest today on the podcast. Erin Kay Thanks, Susan. Great to be here. Susan Branscom Yeah, it's great to have you here. It's going to be a great discussion. We are going to get into some questions and talk about your story and your history with food and how you recovered from the addiction. I understand you do identify as a food addict, right? Erin Kay Correct. Yes, I do. Susan Branscom Yeah. Yeah. So let's start with your story. When did you know that you did not eat like other people normally, as we say, and that you reacted to food, treated food differently than others? When did you start talking about your story? Erin Kay Well, I had a sense that I was different around food, pretty young. And as a young teen, I started to think more about it. An event that really stands out in my mind from my childhood was when I was about six years old. I had an older brother, only a year or so older, and we would get our own breakfast. We had a new baby in the house and we'd have cereal and I would put about five or six scoops of sugar on my cereal. And when my mom, who was trained as a dental hygienist, would find our milky, sugary coating in the bottom of the bowl, she said, you cannot eat sugar. That's too much. I'm hiding the sugar bowl. And I remember very distinctly in my mind at six me like, I will find the sugar bowl. But the weirdest thing was that my brother, 15 months older, did not seem bothered by a hidden sugar bowl. And the first thing I thought was, what is wrong with him? Like, there's something wrong about him. Now, as I grew older and became more self -aware as a young teenager, I started to realize that it was probably me that was different with food. And that came from a preoccupation with food. And when I was in my young teens, I had access to more food. Like I said, growing up with a dental hygienist as a mom, we didn't have a lot of sweet food in the house. But once I started babysitting and had access to food at other people's houses, but more importantly money to go out, I was a free range seventies and eighties kid. I could just go find my fix. I could find sugar in a lot of different forms and a lot of different places with my babysitting cash and a bike or a bus pass. I just got busy getting the food that satisfied that craving. I needed it to feel normal after not too long. So consider I my childhood to be what I call sugar -coated. I would get sugar wherever I could get it, from my grandparents' house, babysitting. And in my high school years, I remember swearing off certain foods. I gave up M &M's for a while just because they were running my life. And as a 14, 15 year old kid, I didn't start dieting really until my teens. And that was really hard to do. I usually try to just over exercise because giving up food just did not seem like it was an option. Yeah, I relate to a lot of what you said. I remember my birthday cake when I was five years old. I mean, today, I'm 64. I still remember my birthday cake. I remember the colors. I remember how it tasted. I remember I couldn't wait to have it and have more. I mean, early. This is five years old. And the babysitting, I don't know if you ever did this, but like I'm babysitting. Let me eat their food. You know, the ice cream in the fridge or the cookies or whatever. And I wanted to get away with it. One time they came home early and I was horrified. I put the ice cream bowl back in the freezer and thought, oh, they're going to find it. No, I did that. Oh, yeah. Babysitting was free range. Lots of goodies. And then in our teens, you know, we're women. We go through puberty and the weight, you know, our hormones change, right? And weight starts coming on. And then that's when my dieting really started. Did use you diets when you were a teenager? Well, I do remember going to a Weight Watchers meeting as a preteen. I don't think I went to any more than one. But again, dieting did not seem like a very good idea. Like I couldn't handle the notion of not being with my food. It was my solution. So what was interesting was that at age, I went to my first 12 step meeting around food at age 16 and a half. had So I a family member take me to my first 12 step meeting. So there was something innate in me that knew that dieting probably wasn't going to work very well. And then I had a degree of powerlessness that could only be addressed with help. So that was age 16.

Sinclair, AP Polls: Biden Is Not Fit to Serve Another Term
"I need to find something else that would be supporting evidence to it. See how much of an outlier that poll is. Well, there's been no other recent poll nationally. done That was exactly the language that was used in the one I just mentioned, but the one that got closed and also came down within the past week was from the Associated Press. The Associated Press asked the question differently. They asked if he is too old to serve another term. OK, so that's the way they frame questions. the Is he too old to serve another term? And 77 percent in the U .S. said yes. So basically, I mean, we're splitting here. Seventy seven. Eighty six percent. Bottom line is the overwhelming majority of Americans. And regardless of how you phrase the question, thank you. Business serving. And while that says something about President Biden in our perception of him, oh, boy, it says just as much about us or more specifically and correctly stated in the context of Joe, not Mitch. That's a whole other issue. But Joe. Democrats. Here was the next piece of this that just kind of blew my mind. I mean, not really, but it's just like in the grand scheme of. Come on, man. It's one of those. So in this Associated Press poll in which 77 percent of people said that Joe Biden is too old to serve a second term. That included 70 percent of Democrats, 70 Democrats percent of said, yeah, you know what? Too old to serve another term. But in the next breath and the
A highlight from Week in Review - Episode 21
"Welcome to The Mike Gallagher Show Week in Review podcast. I'm Eric Hansen. Mike's on vacation, so we had a couple of great guest hosts working this week. We begin with Kevin McCullough of AM 970 The Answer in New York. He discussed some of the new revelations about former Hunter Biden business partner Devin Archer and what he had to say about Joe Biden's involvement in his son's business. We now know that in the Barack Obama, Joe Biden administration, not only did Devin Archer and Hunter Biden business partners regularly converse with then Vice President Joe Biden. He says they never discuss business. He said he never talked about any of his business with the with the with his son. But we now know from Devin Archer's direct testimony that that was not true. But it appears there may have been other administration officials that were involved in the whole shakedown of Ukraine, get them on the board of Burisma so that they could have eighty thousand dollar a month jobs, not knowing the language, not knowing anything about an energy company. Because it's been revealed in documents that have just been brought to light that then Secretary of State John Kerry, I'm John Kerry, I may catch up. Well, no, my wife's family does. I'm John Kerry and I'm reporting for duty or something like you remember that at the convention is really weird. Secretary of State John Kerry and the Obama administration evidently met with and discussed with Devin Archer several of the items related to the Ukraine scenario, getting the prosecutor fired so that they wouldn't be putting political pressure on Burisma, getting getting permissions taken care of from the State Department so that all the whole thing would go smoother. So it's not just crazy Uncle Joe. It's also crazy Uncle John. And these two have yet to answer for any of it. You cannot sell access to American political appointees or elect or elect elected officials. That's that's but where are the prosecutions? Where's the where's the three a .m. SWAT detail bringing John Kerry in in his pajamas? The Hunter Biden scandal grows more troubling every day. Meanwhile, we've been hearing a lot of chatter in the media about a covid resurgence, but is it a real threat or is there an ulterior motive? I want to go back to the phones. Let's start with Chris calling from Rockwall, Texas. Hello, Chris. Hey, how's it going? Thank you so much for taking my phone call. You got it. I was just sitting there listening to you and I wanted to see what your thoughts were. We've had all these different variants or so -called variants. I don't even pay attention to any of them, but almost nobody knows what they're they're called anymore. It's crazy. They keep coming out with new ones. And so what are your thoughts on the economic implications? Because we've had all these variants and then no news, no news. And now all of a sudden we're here and they're setting lockdowns, masks, businesses are seemingly joining this force. And I find it ironic that it has everything to do with going into a presidential year. Oh, Chris, I don't I don't know. Wherever did you get that idea here on August the 28th? Just as we're just as we're revving up after the first presidential debate and headed towards the full primary cycle. Where could you ever get such a crazy idea? Chris from Rockwall, Texas. Thanks for the call.

They got together. They had been doing Zooms during the writer's strike, and then they decided, you know what, maybe this should just be a podcast, and we'll give all the money to our staff, and that's just what we're going to do. All of a sudden, it seemed like a great idea. I remember talking to Jimmy about it and thinking, this is a great idea. This will never actually happen. They'll never actually do this. Well, they did it, and you can follow it on Spotify, Strike Force 5. You can get it wherever you get your podcasts. Can't wait to listen to this. Super excited. Those five guys all on a Zoom together, just cracking jokes. I'm ready. So there you go. On this podcast, it's the second annual My Guy Fantasy Draft. Craig Horlbeck, Danny Kelly, Danny Heifetz from The Ringer Fantasy Show. We're going to come on, and we're going to talk about all of our guys that we like, dislike, that we're afraid of in the fantasy football season, and then went to Cleveland to find Garrett Bush, who is kind of a big guy there. I got to say, he's kind of a guy. He's going to tell us what to expect from the Browns, who are the most confusing 2023 team. A lot of that has to do with Deshaun Watson, which Deshaun Watson, are we going to get? How do we feel about Deshaun Watson in 2023, just in general? And where is Cleveland Sports going? What's happened to them this century? All the good, all the bad. And he's going to lay all of it out for us. So this is a really good podcast. Can't wait. First, our friends from Pro Chip. All right, it's the second annual My Guy Fantasy Draft. Our Ringer Fantasy Show guys are here. Danny Kelly, Danny Heifetz, Craig Horlbeck, my rewatchables producer, always nice when he pops on the BS. So we did this last year. We didn't win any awards, but sometimes you don't need to win awards. Sometimes when something's great, when it works, you just kind of know it, and we're going to run it back. Heifetz, you want to explain what this gimmick is? Yeah, it's you text us a bunch of ridiculous categories and then we kind of build an entire show, right? No, it's fun, though. It's just like it's a draft, but it's not a draft. And then it's it's vibes. It's a vibes episode. Yeah, we can agree on this. The concept is like you go into a fantasy draft. We all have the same kind of guides, same kind of rankings, but it doesn't capture the love. It doesn't capture the irrational. I just believe in this guy. It doesn't capture Craig thinking that that Pickens is going to end up being Justin Jefferson this year. There's just some things he already is or fear PTSD from bad draft picks from the past. I actually listened to a lot of the pod we did last year, and it was pretty funny hearing some of the guys we were like completely enamored by that ended up being bust. And then there were some other ones that I was surprised by the accuracy of it. Danny Kelly, can you ever be right in a fantasy draft? Can you ever go perfect? One in a million. It's like picking stocks, you know, if you get one good one, then you're set. Last year, mine was Romandre. I listened to our show last year, too. Feel like I nailed that one. Didn't get some other ones right. So that's, you know, we don't have to re litigate those. But Romandre, I'm calling that one. The take I was proudest of last year was fearing Cooper Cup after the year that he had just not liking the scent of something. This is veteran experience. I've been doing fantasy, I think since like 1989, 1990, something like that. All right. So I'm going to rip through the categories here. And then we're going to go at them one at a time. This is not, it's a draft, but it's not a draft because if we all have the same guy for a category of two of us have it, it's fine. We're okay. Um, the categories are my one true love, the guy that we just liked the most, my crazy pills guy. Do you want to explain the crazy pills thing, Craig? Uh, I think it could go either way, right? It's either you feel like you're taking crazy pills because nobody else likes the guy you like, or it's the other way around where you feel like you're taking crazy pills because everybody likes this guy and you don't understand it at all. So there's a little variance on that one. You can go either way. There's the my I absolutely hate myself for doing this guy, which seems to happen over and over again in fantasy where you go in there, drive like, well, I'm not going to end up with Russell Wilson. Uh, that was the example I used last year. It could be the example you use again this year. I'm not even gonna spend a dollar for Russell Wilson. Then it gets to the 17th round. If you're in a booger eater draft or, you know, you have $5 left for five guys and it's like, ah, Russell Wilson, Sean Payton, and all of a sudden you have Russell Wilson and you have no idea how he ended up on your team. So that is the, my absolutely hate myself for doing this guy. Uh, there's the, I'm going to add this category. It's a little sub category. The I'm staying away from that whole team team. There's teams where you're just like, I'm out, I'm just blind out. I don't want one person from that team. I'll see, we'll see if we agree on that team. Then we have the, my shameless Homer pick guy. That's going to be really, I mean, Craig, you don't even have to go. Uh, although there could be their tickets like plus 500, but I think we know pick is going to be there. There's the, my, I wouldn't take him even if he was free guy. So you're putting them on your D and D do not draft list. I had McCaffrey as my guy for this last year, which looked brilliant for about six weeks. Then he got traded a machine of an offense. We have the, my, that 2022 booty call isn't happening again guy, which is a new category for this year. This is the, you stumbled into somebody in the free agent auction, maybe in November, you wrote them for a couple of weeks, some fond memories, but you know, as a one night stand or, you know, as a three week stand and you're not going back, then we have the, this is a classic one. The somebody's got to get points on that team guy. We just look at all the teams and like, well, I don't know. Everybody scores 300 someone's catching passes on that team. Someone's rushing for 970 yards. There is the, my sorry, I'm sorry. That's too rich for my blood guy where you look at the draft guide and you see some of the salaries next to the guys. Then you go wait at $47. So Najee Harris was my guy for this last year. And I was proud of that one. There's the, my $1 QB guy. You're not, he's not going to make it break a draft, but you're also kind of secretly stashing away in your head. And we all have our $1 QB. There is the, my I'd be afraid to look on Tuesday and see the red flag guy, which I've added this year. I didn't even tell you about this category. You take the guy and it's going great. Eloy Jimenez is the ultimate baseball example of this. It's going great. You're feeling awesome. And then you go on there on a Tuesday and there's the red flag with the yellow box that there's news. And you're just like, Oh no. Oh God, what happened? And there's certain guys who just, it happens every year. A cousin of that, the, my, I know there's a 99 % chance he's getting hurt again, but God damn, I can't resist this guy guy. Then we have the, my Cooper cup. It's a year after the year guy. So I named this category after Cooper cup. So who is it this year? They had their year last year. Don't do it again. Don't get sucked in five more. The my, I just want everyone on that offense. I don't care guy. The my it's a year too early, but fuck it guy. The my missionary position. We've all had him guy. The my, I fell for the preseason hype guy. And then finally the, my I'd never root for an injury, but he is one injury away. That guy. All right. So we're going to start with my one true love. We're going to go and we're going to go on one, two, three, four on the zoom. And then for the second round, then the second guy will go, Danny Kelly, you're up. All right. My one true love. Who is it? I got to go with Tony Pollard for the Cowboys. I'm irrationally in love with this guy. I've been saying it. I think there's nothing you can say. It convinced me that he's not the best player in the NFL. Like, like just pound for pound, the best player in the NFL. Um, you know, last year he finished as the RV seven this year. He's going to be playing, I think more snaps, getting way more opportunities. If he can get up to like the same level of opportunities as Ekeler and CMC, you know, cause he's in that style of runner. I think this guy could finish as a top three running back in the NFL. And so I am, I'm just like full as a gentleman said, full bloom in love with Tony Pollard. I just can't, I can't help it. So in the ringer fantasy guide, he's 13th right now and he's gone for $42 in auction. So you think that's low? Yeah, I would, I would, I actually had Pollard too. Wow. We all have Pollard. Wait, did you too, Krik? I'm scared now. Yeah. Yeah. Oh, that's, well, that's, that's, this is a sign that, yeah, this is a terrible sign, but I just, I mean, just to pile on to DK stats here, Zeke had 12 touchdowns last year and Nick and Tony Pollard was a top 10 running back. Like what else do you need to hear? Like every time Tony Pollard was on the field, he was the best running back in the league. And now Zeke's gone. Like I rest my case. This is the pregame show where they all pick the same team to win a football and then that team loses. So you should probably stay away from Tony Pollard. Wait. So all three of you had Tony Pollard for this? Yeah, I can give you some. We did not discuss this before coming on. I didn't expect that. Oh, my God. Talk about groups and Jesus. You know, it's, you know, what sucks about this is that means when I have my big auction draft in a week and all my friends are going to be listening to this. And when Tony Pollard comes up, I'm not going to get them because they're all going to bid them up for $57 if I want to get them. Well, Bill's like, oh my God. Well, here's the argument. Rich Rebar, who works for Warren Sharpe, he's at Sharpe Football Analysis and he is a really good comp, which is basically Melvin Gordon was playing ahead of Austin Eckler for years. And everyone's begging for Austin Eckler to get the job. And then Austin Eckler finally got the job and the charges got rid of Melvin Gordon. And then Austin Eckler still wasn't really a first round pick. And we talked ourselves out of it. We hemmed it on. This is Tony Pollard again. It's like Zeke is finally after five years out of Dallas. And we're like, yeah, any point you get Tony Pollard, that's actually crazy. Like, honestly, you could get him for forty five bucks. Austin Eckler is going to go for 60. Tony Pollard would probably just be better than Austin Eckler this year. I kind of genuinely mean this. Tony Pollard should maybe be the first pick in fantasy football. Right? You can convince me. Kind of genuinely. Well, he does have a great offensive line. There are going to be a couple of games against bad teams where he, you know, you have him on Thanksgiving or something and he puts up the four touchdown hundred and eighty yard game. I can see it. So I guess I'm up then because you guys all agreed. You can have anybody you want. My one true love this year, Jalen Hurts of the Philadelphia Eagles, who I also like for MVP. So. Last year, he missed two games and they also blew out what what was a D .K. like seven, eight team, seven, eight games where they just like in the fourth quarter, they didn't even really have to play offense. They're just kind of running out of the string. Yeah, I don't think their defense is going to be as good this year. Sheila Kapadia on the on the NFL show has been talking about this. I think it's to be better than he thinks, but it won't be as good on it. And their schedule is tougher. But, you know, is it possible that he's like a four thousand one thousand guy with some sort of combination of 40 to D like everyone agrees they have the best offensive line in the league. Everyone agrees the one to A .J. Brown, Devonta Smith punch is way up there. And I'm saying like Schrager on TV this week was saying Devonta Smith, this is the year he jumps up to the chase class. So we have that with Dallas Goddard, who everybody thinks is the best all around tight end in the league, the guy who actually blocks and plays three downs, running backs, whatever. Put anyone behind there and they'll gain 80 yards. And then he's going to get a lot of the goal line carries. I think he's my top QB this year. I think I would take him before everybody else. So I don't even think it's that controversial. What do you think of that one? He is, I think you're right. I think the key point you have there is that he barely played in the fourth quarter last year. That's the key thing. He was already in a per game basis. He was the best quarterback in fantasy last year and he barely played the fourth quarter. Yeah. So you could argue he hasn't even reached the ceiling yet. He's our number one guy on the guide right now, I believe. Shameless plug for fantasyfootball .300 .com. He's our 21st player. We have like all our rankings there. And yeah, he has the highest floor and the highest ceiling. My favorite stat about Jalen Hurts, other than 18 rushing touchdowns in 18 games last year, Jalen Hurts had more games over 30 points than under 20. That's everything you want in a quarterback. Well, so he's number one in our guide, but I still feel like in a draft, Mahomes is going over him because of the Mahomes. It's just the most fun to have Mahomes. The R. And I actually think that's a little nuts this year. DK, Hurts is I think either 12 to 1 or 11 to 1 on FanDuel for MVP. And I think those odds are the most out of whack of all the MVP odds, because that's, if you're going to say the MVP is going to come from an awesome team, they're probably one of the five teams that has a chance to go 13 and 4, 14 and 3, something like that. He, they have the most talent on offense, I think, of any team that's going to be in the MVP conversation and we've seen him get better every year. So why is he 11 to 1, 12 to 1? Shouldn't he be like 6 to 1, 7 to 1? Shouldn't it be where Josh Allen is? I don't, is it just because of the previous like impressions that he was a, what was he a third round pick or second round pick and maybe hold on to that for too long? Or maybe it's just because he's surrounded by such a good team. I don't know. But yeah, like you said, he's improved pretty much every season he's been playing, even going back to college. You know, from everything that we've heard, he is maniacal about like working and leadership and just all the things, all the intangibles. And then, of course, you know, if he takes a jump as a passer this year, you know, that's going to be huge for him because he's already like one of the best running quarterbacks. He's double digit rushing touchdowns in the last two years. You know, everything about him screams just, you know, like the face of the franchise season. He's everything they want. And so I could see it like from a narrative point of view, for sure. It reminds me of what you used to have with Russell Wilson when he was alive.

The ultimate goal of Fox and CNN and MSNBC is to create chaos and anger because the everyday person in the United States has more in common than they want us to. Oh, for sure. U .S. SEC not coming out to Cardano. Charles Hoskinson whips it out online, explaining the SEC's continuous crackdown on crypto entities is political and has nothing to do with securities laws. Chuckie Ho Ho, founder of Cardano, believes the United States Securities Exchange Commission will not come after the project's native token, ADA. Interesting. He didn't say not him, but not ADA. OK, that's fine. During a recent YouTube interview on Corey Costa's crypto coins, shout out Corey Costa, a friend of ATB, Hosky pointed out that there has been no enforcement action against ADA so far. Hasn't there been a couple things where people delisted Cardano? Yeah, a lot of exchanges have delisted in anticipation that something happens, but nothing like there's like misinformation out there. I've actually talked to people who think that right now Cardano is in a lawsuit with the SEC and that is not true. Same. Same. Before we continue with the story, hit that like button. Drew, where are we at for likes, bro? Pull that mic down. Let the people hear your smooth dulcet tones. We got two hundred and eighty eight likes. Need to pump those numbers up. These are. How do I say this nicely? These are Mike Pence at the debate last night. Numbers. We need to bump these numbers up, folks. OK, prove that you are not a Fed and hit that like button. Subscribe to this channel. Leave a comment. Get active in chat, bro. Drew, give me a poll. Who won the debate last night? Poll the audience. Let's get it going. Krit Kratts, Nick Tator hosting very bullish for crypto. Heck yeah, baby. Let's keep on going. SEC is not coming after Ada in two recent lawsuits against the world's leading crypto exchanges. Coinbase and Binance. The SEC classified roughly twelve tokens, including Cardano and a bunch of other ones. Philcon. Yep, Philcon. Oh, Philcon. That's how you say it. Insisting they ought to be registered. Insisting. We're like stamping foot. Should be registered before being listed on exchanges. Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong and Harry's Razor's number one customer once disclosed that the agency had asked the exchange to delist all tokens except Bitcoin as they qualified securities. Isn't it weird that like last week. The CFTC said Bitcoin and Ethereum were both commodities. Yeah, I mean, what's what's the Gary wants control, Nick, but it's over, right? Like no one can serious. No one can take the SEC seriously if another agency says the thing that the SEC says is security is a commodity. I mean, I don't know if anyone has been taking the SEC seriously for a minute now, but we know Gary tries to fight with every weapon he has. And unfortunately, he still has a lot of weapons. They don't work very well, but he still uses them. Yeah, and it's the delay tactic. He wants to delay everything he can. Yeah, yeah. So someone said watching Nick is painful. Well, look. Pain and suffering makes you a better human being, OK? Reject comfort. Watch this stream while I host. All right. Who won the debate last night? Vivek Pence, DeSantis, Trump. I would have put Nikki in there instead of Pence because Pence was just like a buffoon. Anyways, SEC's move is political. Yeah, we know this. Cardano Boss said the one political party in the U .S. which received a lot of money from S .F .F. is trying to show that they are not corrupt. Hence, they have moved from being bipartisan and working with other parties to create crypto rules, to accusing everyone of being a bad actor in time to throw them behind bars. I'll disagree with Hosky here saying there really is only one party in the United States. OK, it's a uni -party system. There is no true opposition. OK, I would say that the Republicans and Fox News are controlled opposition. It's it's the two two wings on the same bird at this point. Would you agree or am I am I being a little too? Oh, no, it's it's extremely obvious the same people own both sides. And I've I've said this before. We've talked about this on Investing Bros that people don't need like I see too many people who are like, oh, if Fox says it, it must be true. And Fox is just a different kind of evil than CNN, but they're owned by the same people. The goal ultimate of Fox and CNN and MSNBC is to create chaos and anger because the everyday person in the United States has more in common than they want us to for sure. 100 percent. They want us to think that if you don't agree, if you're not a Republican, you are the evilest person in the world. If you're not a Democrat or Democrats, you're the evilest person in the world. And they make money by sowing this disunity. Yeah.
A highlight from The Mike and Mark Davis Daily Chat - 08/25/23
"Turbulent times call for clear -headed insight that's hard to come by these days, especially on TV. That's where we come in. Salem News Channel has the greatest collection of conservative minds all in one place. People you know and trust, like Dennis Prager, Eric Metaxas, Charlie Kirk, and more. Unfiltered, unapologetic truth. Find what you're searching for at snc .tv and on Local Now Channel 525. I need to know from my Broadway Maven friend Mike Gallagher how many productions of West Side Story have you seen? I think I've seen three and I'm just a pretender in terms of consumers of the compliment. That sounds like an absolute slur. No, no, no. Is that a slur? No, a maven is somebody who is immersed in something, an expert in something, somebody who is well versed in something. Broadway aficionado or as they say in Maryland affectionado. Great, great. Well, last night was a big night. Sit tight, sit tight, sit tight. I do everything for a reason. First answer the question. It's Leonard Bernstein's 120th birthday. I don't know. Close, close. How many times have you seen West Side Story? A few, a lot. It's probably either that or Man of La Mancha or I don't know what is my favorite but it is indeed Leonard Bernstein's birthday born this date 1918. There's a movie about him coming up in November with Bradley Cooper as Leonard Bernstein. A lot of drama about that controversy. Tell us why. Do you know why? Yeah, well he has a prosthetic nose apparently to try to recreate what Leonard Bernstein looked like. He had a big schnoz. He had a honker on him and Bradley Cooper doesn't so they did that but now all of a sudden it's Jew face which is just uncomfortable to say. It's like blackface where somebody white plays somebody black. It's like Broadway maven. No, it's not like that at all. So that's a stupid controversy. Bernstein's own family said we love Bradley Cooper. We love the movie. It'll come out. Now let's talk about the real life drama. The floor is yours, political maven Mike Gallagher. Let's talk drama. You know I love talking about swapping stories. So let me tell you a story. Let me first stipulate. I've got such a splendid team. I've got a team. I was thinking last night, Derek, Eric, Tracy, Adam, these are can -do people. They spring into action. You've got them there in Dallas. You've got Rhonda and of course all your great people around you, Gordon and Matt and everybody. We love to be surrounded by positive can -do people. So last night I get off the plane from Tampa. I'm in Atlanta. It's about 190 degrees here and I say to Derek, Derek, I gotta really hustle. I gotta drop my bags off. Give me the address of where the action is. Tell me where to go because I'm not sure, you know, the Fulton County system where he goes, got it, got it. And Derek goes fast. Sometimes when you go fast, you miss some key details. So he gives me the street address. Now I show up at the courthouse. It's a row of TV trucks. I'm thinking good. I'm in the right place. Look at all these TV trucks. But there are no people. So I'm now walking. Now bear in mind, I'm not kidding you. It is 100 degrees. I'm not exaggerating. It's literally 100 here and the humidity is about 200%. I'm schlepping around, schlepping around the courthouse and I can't find anybody. Finally I see a TV reporter and cameraman. I say, can you tell me where the protesters are? Oh yeah. Yeah. They're two blocks over. Cause I want to interview some people. I want to enter. I'm there to get the action, right? Of course. Of course. And I see a hundred TV trucks. It's gotta be, so I go to us two blocks over. So I go over and there's like a handful of like young people and they're like black and white kids. And I go into the crowd and I said, do you mind, Hey, I'm Mike from Salem radio network. You mind doing some interviews? Oh sure. Sure. I'm glad you're here. We'll talk. And they say, Hey, how are, why are you? They start talking about the police state and the, the, the, the, the authoritarians of the police department. I'm thinking, Oh gosh, I got a bunch of young pro Trumpers talking about the weapons, the weaponization of law enforcement. So then I bring it back to Trump and they look at me and they cock their heads and they say, Trump, I'm like, I said, finally the third kid I interview. And I started to notice there's a, I started to see, well, there's a rainbow flag over in the and background there's a black lives matter flag. This is a strange, this is a pro strange pro Trump group. I said, you're here for Trump. He said, Trump, we're here for Johnny. I said, who the heck is Johnny? Johnny is apparently somebody who was killed by the police. It's one of those police shooting protests. I get on the phone to Derek. I said, Derek, where are the peers? He goes, Oh, are you at the jail? I said, no, I'm at the courthouse. He said, Oh, you're in the wrong place. So now I said, please tell me the jail is a block away from here. It's just cause you're schvitzing like nobody's business. Try 25 minutes away. Try 20. Now, meanwhile, Trattup is, Tom Trattup is texting me saying, you better get there. He's landing. He's at the airport. Trump's on his way. I'm like, now I'm, now I'm running now. By now they've closed the highways because you see for a motorcade, that's one of the dog on his motorcades I've ever seen him. Well, but I want to talk about that with you in just a moment. Because he's just an ordinary prisoner, right? Exactly. Yeah. Just another prisoner. But now I can't get there because the roads are all closed for the motorcade. Cause I've been, you know, hanging out with black lives matter protesters, you know, giving them business cards and show materials. Let's go Donald Trump. And they're looking at me like I'm out of my mind. And then they're nice kids. I mean, they're just upset about a police shooting. Listen, let's put it this way. Let's stipulate Edward R. Murrow in the trenches covering the battle of the bulge. I ain't, I mean me walking around in a hundred degree weather trying to, so finally I get to within about two miles of the jail, the Uber driver Mustafa, who's already annoyed about the traffic. He drops me off two miles from the jail. And as CJ, the great engineer here in Atlanta put it, the jail is in the hood. The jail is in, I'm now walking, well, I'm in the hood walking the whitest guy in America and people are offering me drugs. I've got it. I had a discount on some crack. They're friendly people in Georgia. They're trying to do business with this, you know, white guy walking through the hood, clearly trying to find protesters. So it was unbelievable. And I'm not kidding you. It was, I will put it this way. Let me put this in a very dangerous neighborhood. Okay. And I am walking and I'm walking and I'm cursing and I'm saying I'm going to do things to Derek that third world countries do. I could not believe the position I was in. Anyway, long story short, I finally get there. As it turns out, when I got there, what comes pulling out of the Fulton County jail? The Trump motorcade. So I got video of the motorcade. I saw, you know, the whole procedure. I interviewed a bunch of people, white, black, pro -Trump, anti -Trump, and it all turned out, you know, fine. But it was interesting to talk to all the angry Atlantans who came out to witness this spectacle and they can't believe that their city is front and center in this disgraceful act of the prosecution of Donald Trump. You know, Biden yesterday celebrating the arrest as a great day to donate to his campaign. Did you see that vicious Nicole Wallace at MSNBC? Did you see what she did? Stifling a laugh. She's laughing about the fact that Trump was booked in a jail where two people had died. She thought that was funny. I mean, you know, the great Jesse Waters dressing down Jessica Tarloff calling her out for being giddy about the arrest. It's Christmas in August. It's Christmas in August for them. And as Jesse put it to the liberal on that, this is no time to celebrate. This is beneath you to celebrate, but they do celebrate this because it isn't serious. It isn't legitimate. I mean, this is brutal, just brutal. And, you know, I'm just trying to make sense of it all, Mark, with you and me, and we're trying to understand the enormity of it all. We're trying to survive this. And I will tell you that for people who live in Atlanta, who came in the brave, the heat to stand out there and wave a Trump flag or wave an American flag. I met a guy from South Dakota, incidentally, who came here in a truck convoy from South Dakota and a great. And incidentally, the guy was like, I can't believe I'm talking to you about two years ago. I was yelling at you on the radio when you was out driving and he was the nicest guy. We had such a great visit and we just commiserated about how low we've sunk. Historians are going to look back at this day and say, what were they doing? What did they do? Do you think they will? Well, I won't give you my speech on historians again. Historian is like a constitutional scholar. It's a law. I'm pretty serious, too. It is a lost profession. Historians are political hacks. If Trump does prevail in this, and especially if he is elected and wins, the historians who seem to be working today and dominating today will say that America missed an opportunity to heap accountability onto an evil leader who is elected by the enthralled cult worshiping masses. That's what today's brand of historian will say. I pray to God historians pull their heads out and realize what is happening. Well, I saw Jonathan Turley when I got back to the hotel and I put the cold compresses on my forehead and I got the smelling salts and I sat in the cold tub for two hours to try to recover. Again, a war correspondent I ain't. Jonathan Turley said something last night to Sean Hannity. It's a quick paragraph. I want to read this to you. He says, this is a law professor. And oh, and by the way, speaking of social media, Trump's back on Twitter. Back on Twitter. Eighty six million followers. How many likes? I wonder how many? How many views? I'll look while you share the quote. Go ahead. The quote is this is Jonathan Turley's exact words. This is criminalizing the challenge of elections. You have a Democrat prosecutor saying, how dare you challenge a Democrat victory? That's it. And it's been done before by Democrats, including this one. Red State found all these instances of Fannie Willis questioning the outcome of elections. She's done it before. You have a Democrat prosecutor saying, how dare you challenge a Democrat victory? The case is based on the theory that Trump was it was challenging this election illegally was pointed out. This is the eleven thousand. I need to find eleven thousand votes. The way the way she portrayed that phone call. These are Jonathan Turley's words, Mark. The way she portrayed that phone call is evidence of the bias and unfairness of aspects of this indictment. And to the left and to the Trump haters, this is the whole indictment. I need how many? Eleven thousand. Eleven thousand. Jonathan Turley said it makes perfect sense when you're challenging an election to say, I only need eleven thousand photos or votes. That's not a lot in Georgia. That's not criminal. That's making a case for a recount. Especially when the number is especially when everybody woke up and found that things had changed crazily overnight in a number of states. And there were votes that were being counted that maybe shouldn't have something were being not counted that maybe should have. So, OK, in that fog of uncertainty, find me eleven thousand legal actual real votes. And let's see what we can do here. There's nothing illegal about that. There's nothing criminal about that. And that's their whole case.
A highlight from 1379: Bitcoin Will Reach $400,000 Next Halving Epoch
"In today's show, we're going to be discussing Bitcoin analysts eyeing a V -shape Bitcoin price bounce as the RSI hits a five -year low. I'm also going to be sharing with you a new Bitcoin bull cycle metric, which bought them before 70 % gains. We'll also be discussing mysterious Bitcoin wallet becomes the third largest Bitcoin hodler in under three months, now at over $3 billion. We'll also be discussing the trader who nailed the 2018 Bitcoin price floor predicts the bear market bottom for crypto. I'll be breaking down his outlook. We'll also be discussing Guggenheim predicts a $400 ,000 Bitcoin price prediction, as well as Blockware. They share that the Bitcoin price can reach $400 ,000 during the next halving epoch. I'll be breaking this down for you. We'll also be taking a look at the overall crypto market, all this plus so much more in today's show. Yo, what's good, crypto fam? This is first and foremost, a video show. So if you want the full premium experience with video, visit my YouTube channel at Cryptonewsalerts .net. Again, that's Cryptonewsalerts .net. Welcome, everyone. Just joining us. This is podcast episode number thirteen hundred and seventy nine. I'm your host, JV. And today is August twenty second, twenty twenty three. And naturally, we have lots to cover. Unfortunately, the market is continuing on its downward spiral. We just broke that twenty six K resistance, as you can see here. And our market watch, we've got Bitcoin currently hovering just above twenty five thousand eight hundred dollars. We have Ether barely holding on to sixteen hundred. So the million dollar question becomes, how low will she go? And checking out CoinMarketCap .com, the crypto market cap barely holding on to that trillion dollar milestone, with about twenty eight billion in volume. In the past twenty four hours, we have the Bitcoin dominance at forty eight point four percent and the Ether dominance at eighteen point nine percent. And checking out the top one hundred crypto gainers for the past week, virtually nothing, and maybe just a handful, just a sea of losses, very unfortunate for the entire crypto market and checking out the crypto greed and fear index. Of course, we're still in fear today, rated to seventy eight. Last week was a fifty three neutral and last month a fifty four neutral as well. So there you have it. I mean, I've been taking advantage of this recent dip. I mean, sub twenty six thousand dollar Bitcoin seems like a bargain. If you're to ask me, let me know in that live chat. And now let's break down today's Bitcoin technical analysis and check out the charts and what is happening right now in the markets. Bitcoin stayed stubbornly anti trend today, August twenty second, as twenty six thousand became a magnet for the intraday Bitcoin price action. And again, we're just currently dropping right below it. And regarding the RSI readings, here's what someone had to share. At this stage, it feels like a game of chicken to see who is going to make the move to break the chop, according to material indicators. Now analyzing liquidity on the Binance order book, he also notes that a broad lack of liquidity, increasing the potential for a sharp move in either direction. Quitting the analysts here, the market is waiting to see if more bid or more ask liquidity is going to be attracted to the range. So far, we're seeing small amounts of bid liquidity ladder up from twenty thousand closer to the active trading zone, but no liquidity of any size new or moved has been stacked into the range, defending the price from the lower low. The implications were nonetheless potentially very serious for the bulls with the lower low apt to risk even a twenty thousand support going forward. Quitting the analysts again, needless to say, printing a lower low on this time frame has macro implications. Printing two lower lows would push the Bitcoin price to sub twenty thousand dollar levels. So a great question. How many of you are anticipating the Bitcoin price action dropping below twenty thousand? Let me know. Now zooming out, hope remain that Bitcoin can rescue its overall uptrend. So it's not all doom and gloom. In a dedicated video, we had crypto analyst Mikal van de Poppe shared that on the twelve hour time frames, the RSI measured less than nineteen at the time of writing near its lowest level since the twenty eighteen bear market bottom. Daily levels were similar, reaching their lowest since the March twenty twenty no vid crossmarket crash, quitting him here. Every time we see such a move, you get a sort of V shape recovery back up and it finds equilibrium on the higher floor. And he also added it was very likely that Bitcoin can stage a comeback to focus on twenty six five or more next as the outlines here in this chart. He also shared that the current Bitcoin price action reminds me of September twenty twenty absorption and slowly grind higher here for a while. And I can see this play out similarly. So there you have it. What are your thoughts? Do you feel we're likely to continue downwards, potentially sub twenty thousand or even touch in as low as twenty thousand? Or do you feel we're likely to continue climbing back up as the analysts on the ladder shared? Let me know your honest thoughts in the comments. Right down below. Now let's discuss a new bull cycle amongst us right now. Shall we check this out? The Bitcoin metric that nailed the pit of the twenty twenty two bear market says this uptrend is still intact. Let's go and a new post. The creator of on chain analytics platform looking to Bitcoin shared some good news in the form of Bitcoin's realized cap huddle waves metric. Let's go. While last week's 10 percent Bitcoin price dip has up ended some of the on chain landscape, the our huddle is one of the metrics taking the longer term view of what remains a timely bull market. This metric takes existing huddle waves data, which groups the Bitcoin supply when each coin or specifically the unspent transaction outputs last moved and waits it by the realized price. An example of the price at which it last move, quoting them here, peaks in younger age bands, highlights the periods where they have a proportionally higher realized value waiting relative to the older realized value age band, said Philip Swift. And he also shares this is important to note, as it indicates that the market is prepared to pay higher values for Bitcoin today and in recent times versus historical norms. This can be a good indicator that the market is becoming overheated. What are your thoughts now? Currently, the bands of coins that last moved three to six months ago are rising, a phenomenon coming to the start of the Bitcoin's previous bull markets. And on the topic of the August drawdown on Bitcoin Swift thus concluded that the recent price dip is the context of a much bigger bull trend, quoting him again here, three to six months band trending up as new money comes back into the market equals new bull cycle. Let's go. Now, our huddle has an impressive record when it comes to Bitcoin price phases. Back in December of last year, when Bitcoin was circling its two year lows of 15 six, which is the current market bottom, Swift used this metric to call the end of the euphoria among Bitcoin's speculative investor cohort, which he labels Taurus. He stated that that time that the market is likely now at these cycle lows, which means maximum risk reward opportunity, which I discussed in great detail yesterday. I said there's way more reward than risk currently in the market. And beginning in January of this year, Bitcoin began a new uptrend that delivered 70 percent gains just in quarter one. And since then, investor composition has changed with the short term huddler entities holding Bitcoin for one hundred and fifty five days or less, reducing their overall exposure to their lowest since November of twenty twenty one. And the latest dip nonetheless increased pressure on those remaining speculators, but almost 90 percent of the short term huddler coins now held at an unrealized loss. But I also like to point out that also the smart money, which are the whales, are continuing to accumulate. So even though the short term investors are the paper hands selling their Bitcoin potentially to BlackRock or MicroStrategy, whatever big corporate interests out there, the smart money is continuing to huddle. And as you know, we like to follow the smart money with that being shared, fam. Now let's discuss this new wallet, which came out of nowhere and has now accrued over three billion dollars worth of Bitcoin in less than three months. Who do you think owns this wallet? Well, let's look into it and discuss it, shall we? A mysterious Bitcoin wallet has surged up the ranks to become the third largest huddler of Bitcoin in the world in just over three months, with the timing sparking some wild theories about its owner. According to data from crypto statistics platform Bitinfo Charts, the wallet address first received Bitcoin on March 8th, and over the course of the next three months and two weeks, the wallet had accrued a staggering one hundred and eighteen thousand BTC worth over a billion dollars at today's current prices. Now, the rapid and significant accrual of Bitcoin within a single wallet addresses has attracted its fair share of conjecture naturally on X. Some users suggest it's most likely a crypto exchange moving their funds, while some more radical members have posted and more wild theories suggesting that Black Rock is the prime suspect. As shared here, this unknown address has accumulated over three billion dollars worth of Bitcoin in the last three months. The prime suspect, my first major transaction, which was thirty four hundred Bitcoin, occurred on May 16th, 2023, almost exactly one month later, on June 15th, when Black Rock filed for spot Bitcoin ETF. Now, very interesting, right? Now, the current largest Bitcoin wallets in the world, according to Bitinfo Charts, are reportedly owned by Binance and Bitfinex and are Bitcoin cold storage wallets. The unknown Bitcoin wallet comes in third place and is then followed by another Binance cold wallet in fourth place. Now, Black Rock made waves in the crypto market, as we know, June 15th, filing an application for the spot Bitcoin ETF product that, if accepted by the SEC, will be the first of its kind in the United States and completely change the game. Black Rock's applications sparked a wave of filings for similar spot products from a horde of other Wall Street heavyweights, including Fidelity, Invesco, Wisdom Tree and Valkyrie. The prospect of a spot Bitcoin ETF whipped crypto analysts into a frenzy, sharing their bullish predictions for the price of Bitcoin with Fundstrat's head of research, Tom Lee, suggesting that Bitcoin can reach a price of one hundred and fifty to one hundred and eighty thousand dollars per coin following the halving event scheduled to be in April 2024, which is now officially less than nine months out. What are your thoughts, though, fam? Let me know in the comments. And at the end of the show, I'll be reading everyone's comments out loud. Now let's discuss before we get into very bullish price targets, including this four hundred thousand dollar prediction, which is the main topic for the day. First, let's discuss where's the Bitcoin price likely to bottom out, according to this top analyst. Let's discuss it. The trader who accurately called Bitcoin's twenty eighteen bear market bottom is forecasting how the entire crypto market can carve a price floor for this cycle. Synonymous analyst Bluntz, what a username, love it, shared on social media X that he closely is looking at the total market cap of crypto, which is the total chart. Bluntz says he sees the total chart losing about 15 percent of its value before crypto assets can witness a significant bounce, quitting him here, looking at total paints, the clearest picture of them all and far more than looking at either ETH or BTC on their own based off the total chart. I do believe the June lows still need to be swept before calling bottoms, but it will probably be the last good buying opportunity of the next few years. So seize the moment, fam. And as you can see in this total crypto market chart, you can see we're currently sitting at just barely above one trillion. He sees us dropping before rising to one point four trillion dollars. So it appears that he expects the total market cap of all crypto to plummet to roughly eight hundred and eighty billion, wiping out one hundred and twenty billion off the current market. The analyst is a popular practitioner of the Elliott Wave theory, which we commonly cover here, an advanced technical analysis approach that attempts to predict the future price action by following crowd psychology that tends to manifest in waves. Bluntz says that his prediction is based on a model that outlines an asset's potential correction after a steep rally based, quoting him here, based off simple Elliott Wave model, viewing the rise from the lows as an impulsive move and our corrective wave from the highs being around 70 to 80 percent complete. Now, let me know if you agree or disagree with the crypto analyst. Do you think the crypto market cap needs to shed another one hundred and twenty billion before we rise back on up? Let me know your honest thoughts in the comments right down below. Now let's discuss Guggenheim's seven I'm sorry, four hundred thousand dollar price prediction. Scott Minard, who is their CIO. He originally made this prediction, I believe towards the end of twenty twenty one. Now, unfortunately, he has had a heart attack and he passed, so he's no longer with us. He literally died in December of last year. But nonetheless, he still made this prediction. So we're going to cover it and then we're going to discover the outline metrics from Blockware and their four hundred thousand prediction for the height of this cycle for the next halving reaching the epoch, which is also interesting because they're also suggesting a four hundred thousand dollar price action per coin. Then we'll dive into our live Q &A. So here we go. This was again, this article was dated, as you can see here, January 18th, twenty twenty one. So this is roughly just over two years ago. And at that time, Bitcoin was trading just above forty one thousand dollars. So here's the prediction coming from Scott Minard, from Guggenheim, a large, large asset manager. I think one thing that we are seeing is the sudden interest in retail. We are moving into a speculative frenzy and perhaps it's time to take some money off the table. Now, the debate around Minard's two opposite comments for Bitcoin sparked curiosity amongst the crypto community when he said time to take money off the table. And he also added on this tweet, it was before it became X, it was right Twitter. So he shared Bitcoin's parabolic rise is unsustainable in the near term, vulnerable to a setback. The target technical upside of thirty five thousand has been exceeded time to take some money off the table. And just at that time when he made that tweet, Bitcoin entered a strong correction. And over that time, Bitcoin tested support at thirty thousand twice before resuming back northwards and also talking about the positive side, back to the four hundred thousand price prediction. The Guggenheim CIO said that Bitcoin is becoming a favorable asset class slowly. That's right. And still remains positive on the Bitcoin price action for the long term, quitting him here. The other side of that is demonstrating that crypto is becoming much more mainstream. The four hundred thousand dollar price I talked about was based off the supply of gold in the world and crypto in a lot of ways is more attractive than gold. Let me know if you agree or disagree. I absolutely agree that Bitcoin is way more attractive than gold and comparing it to the yellow metal market. Minard said that Bitcoin comes with additional benefits like portability and ease of transactions. And note that Guggenheim Partners is already seeking five hundred million dollars worth of exposure to Bitcoin via the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust, which is the GBTC product, the largest HODLer Bitcoin in the world. They currently control over four hundred thousand BTC. So this will be a 10 percent exposure to Bitcoin from five billion Guggenheim's macro opportunities fund. The investment giant's proposed SEC filing shall become effective January 31st. And when asked Minard of if any of their funds have been allocated into Bitcoin, Minard hinted that they are still waiting for the SEC to approve their proposal. He added that if client demand picks up, they would possibly consider some allocations. And he also revealed that some small private Guggenheim funds have done some allocations, quoting him again, and some of our private funds, we have already purchased it. I recommended it to somebody. So if you believe what I said, that it'll go to four hundred thousand dollars per coin eventually, then two percent of your portfolio will be 20 percent before this is all over. So there you have it. Let me know if you agree or disagree with Scott Minard. And again, rest in peace. The dude had a heart attack at the end of last year and is no longer with us. And with that being shared now for our main story of the day, and that's the block where outline prediction of a four hundred thousand dollar Bitcoin price, along with the math to back it up. Now, this is pretty awesome. And again, shout out to everyone today in our live chat. I appreciate everyone's support. Shout out to Blockware Solutions as they shared on X how Bitcoin can reach four hundred thousand dollars per coin during the next halving epoch brought to you by Blockware Intelligence. Here we go. Twenty twenty four halving analysis, understanding the market cycles and opportunities created by the halving. Unlike other commodities, Bitcoin has a predetermined algorithmic supply schedule, which cannot be changed. There are multiple factors contributing to the cyclical nature of Bitcoin's price, including network adoption and the macroeconomic environment. But the most impactful is the mining subsidy halving. Yeah, that's right. Bitcoin's market cycles are unique due to its fully transparent block chain, providing market participants with more granular information than any other asset class. And moreover, the predictable supply schedule further impacts the psychology of market participants and example demand. So number one, halving's reduce the sell pressure. Miners are the primary force of sell pressure on the price of Bitcoin they receive, although the newly issued Bitcoin and the majority of which they must sell in order to fund operating expenses for their mining operations, the weakest miners on the network are eliminated and sell pressure is significantly reduced. The price of Bitcoin begins drifting up and a new wave of adoption then begins and assuming a thirty five thousand price action after the halving, the U .S. dollar value of Bitcoin mined per year can drop from eleven and a half billion to five point seven billion dollars. That is one hundred and sixty four thousand two hundred and fifty Bitcoin less mined every year, more than MicroStrategy's entire Bitcoin treasury. Now, after the inefficient miners capitulate, the profit margin increases for surviving miners, which further reduces the sell pressure. So based on the post capitulation hashrate estimate, this would result in a two point three billion dollar reduction in annual sell pressure from the miners. Now, number two, halving brings new demand with supply being diminished. Demand is the only remaining variable determining the market price of BTC. Many market participants understand the supply side dynamics at play due to the halvings. Historically, this has led to a surge in demand in the months following each halving, as evidenced by on chain data. We'll be checking out these charts in a little bit and do the positive sentiment market participants prepare to deploy capital at the first sign of upward momentum. Now decreased supply plus increased demand equals strong positive signal for the price appreciation. Number three, the halvings cannot be priced in. Despite their predictable nature, halvings cannot be fully priced in before they occur. A higher price today would result in more miners coming online, introducing additional sell pressure and limiting the price appreciation. And moreover, the weakest miners, those with old generation machines and or high operating costs, are the first to unplug post halving. The elimination of these miners significantly reduces the sell pressure as they were selling most of their Bitcoin to fund their operations. Lastly, there are some market participants that believe halvings are bad for the security of the Bitcoin network as the diminishing block subsidy reduces the amount of miners making Bitcoin more vulnerable to an attack. And when halving successfully occur, these doubters are proved wrong and positive sentiment increases. Now, number four, Bitcoin cycle volatility and historical performance. Bitcoin's extreme volatility is a side effect of its halving shocks and rapid global adoption, resulting in four distinct stages within each halving cycle. Stage one, the halving, stage two, the bull market, stage three, the bear market and then stage four, recovery. And while Bitcoin is often criticized for its extreme volatility on a long enough time horizon, its volatility is solely to the upside. Keep that in mind. Now, nobody who has ever bought Bitcoin and held it for more than five years is down on their purchase. That's worth repeating. Nobody who has ever bought Bitcoin and held it for more than five years is down on their purchase. So in a long term, how long is that? Holla in the live chat. And for each epoch, the price of Bitcoin has increased by the following amounts from the halving to the next bull market top from 2009 to 2011. We had a 584 X increase in price action from 2012 to 2015, 92 X from 2016 to 2019, 30 X and from 2020 to 2024, 7 .7 X. And now number five, diminishing returns may not be the case going forward. Some question the bullishness of these halvings as the stock of existing Bitcoin grows relative to the amount of new bitcoins being mine. This is a common perspective, but it may be incorrect. Less than 10 percent of the existing Bitcoin have moved in the last month. A large majority of Bitcoin is held by users unwilling to sell at today's price. Now, the small amount of bitcoins that is moving and being traded is what determines today's price. There is a baseline of demand and from Bitcoin are saving for the future. The reduction in sell pressure becomes more pronounced, each halving after Bitcoin more than doubles in price. This indicates that halving induced reductions in sell pressure could become more extreme and potentially lead to larger bull runs in the future. Now, 2024 will be the first halving where the supply of Bitcoin available for trade decreased since the previous halving. And during spring of 2020, the percentage of the outstanding Bitcoin available for trade was at an all time high, indicating the Bitcoin was over becoming more abundant. However, this trend had reversed over the last three and a half years. And as the new bull market begins, there will be less Bitcoin available than the previous cycles. The first halving this has ever occurred. And assuming the price of thirty five thousand at the date of the halving, a four hundred thousand dollar cycle top would break the trend of diminishing returns, which is a reasonable expectation due to the two billion having supply shock and increasing scarcity, a liquid BTC supply on the exchanges. Now, number six, juxtaposition with gold. Gold is an asset similar to Bitcoin and that they are both non -sovereign stores of value. However, when juxtaposed, Bitcoin poses far more desirable attributes. Facts. Number one, Bitcoin is absolutely scarce, while gold is only relatively scarce. That's true because with gold, you can continue mining a new supply, adding to the overall supply each and every year with Bitcoin. There could never be more than twenty one million Bitcoin. And number two, Bitcoin is more portable, divisible, fungible and is less vulnerable to rehypothecation by centralized custodians. Facts. So after the 2024 halving, the inflation rate of Bitcoin will fall under one percent, which is less than half that of gold. Now, four hundred thousand dollars per Bitcoin would put the market cap of Bitcoin just beneath the parity with gold. Let's go. Can't wait for a twelve trillion market cap for the king crypto personally. Now, given the bullish catalysts induced by the halving, we believe this is a fair estimate for the top of the coming Bitcoin cycle. Now let's take a look at some of these charts, which they shared. This first one shows you the Bitcoin price issuance with the 90 day moving 90 day change issuance. And you can see, you know, the different metrics here in the different colors. And then let's go to their next chart here. It shows you entities net growth with a 30 day moving average. You can see the surge in demand and just continuing to move on up like clockwork. And then in this final chart here, we can see the Bitcoin price all time highs for each cycle, which is separated, which you can see here. Yes. So, I mean, if history doesn't repeat, oftentimes it shall rhyme. So I cannot wait. And I'd personally love to see a four hundred thousand dollar price action. And this shows you the hash rate, which just continues to climb, reaching all time highs, making the Bitcoin network more secure than it's ever been before. And they also shared an interesting update, which I might as well read that as well right here. Part two. Let's read a touch of this and then we'll dive into our live Q &A. What machine and electricity rate will Bitcoin miners need to survive this twenty twenty four halving? Check it out. There are three distinct phases in the time before, during and after the twenty twenty four Bitcoin halving. We've got number one, the pre halving, number two, the post halving and number three, post capitulation. Number one, the pre halving before the twenty twenty four halving, all miners will be operating at a profit but are likely selling at least enough Bitcoin to cover their operation expenses. Miners with the most efficient machines and the lowest energy rates have the lowest Bitcoin breakeven prices. And the miners with higher breakeven prices are either unprofitable or forced to sell at a higher percentage of the Bitcoin that they mine in order to cover their operating expenses. And also it includes what's minor and Avalon equivalents, which are size adjusted for the percentage of the total network hash rate. Now let's discuss the post halving after the twenty twenty four halving. Many miners will become unprofitable since miners have already made significant capital expenditures for mining Bitcoin infrastructure and are locked into energy contracts. They are unlikely to turn off immediately. So instead, they will try to continue operating for as long as possible, hoping the Bitcoin increases enough to make them profitable again. Now, unless Bitcoin price appreciates quickly, the extreme margin compression will begin to force inefficient miners offline. And number three, the post capitulation following the capitulation of inefficient miners difficulty will adjust down, lowering the breakeven prices for surviving miners who will become even more profitable. So there you have it. I mean, shout out again to Blockware. Awesome analysis on their outline of the Bitcoin price going to four hundred thousand dollars per coin at the epoch of the next halving, which again is right around the corner next year.

No, yeah, but anyway, there's your weather in Naples Yeah, I'm glad it will start doing all of Southwest, Florida. I'm glad we are not in California. Yeah Oh, yeah, my son went through that Because California right now is hit by Hillary. Yeah, but he was yeah But he was talking about how it is nothing but they did have flooding that that's the problem down there But you know what? Are they gonna find something else to complain about? I mean they went through 12 years of drought. He'd probably go like hey, give us a couple of hurricanes You know and fill up all the reservoirs and anything But anyway, you know, I'm so glad people getting pretty good idea what Hillary would be like if she would be a president. Yeah They all they all smell She lost. Oh, yeah, and and I remember somebody gave me toilet paper to heal a picture Oh, yeah with her picture, I put it. Oh, that's so bad. I put it in the coffee I would have saved it for a souvenir. I put it in the coffee shop. Oh nice And oh, it was like it was like a bit exhibit First first friend of mine Chris he went there Just Even out thinking over there I will have it with nightmares. Yeah, just this he was afraid that's okay Anyway, yeah. Well, that's enough Well, I mean it's fun to make fun of it I mean both sides are clown show But anyway, and that just here's how political we want to get we need to come together as a community There are things that we could do that we couldn't you know, it's not like talking about compromise or whatever but people should be able to come to a consensus of what is good for a community and One of the things that we think is really good for the community is to build local businesses because everybody benefits economically There's jobs people go up the social ladder. So there's not that much Argumentation there and then why can't we get together and talk about you know from a local perspective? who we have in offices and commissions and all that to To get people to put in the right policies that make business run smoother more efficient more environmentally sound and these types of things but doesn't you know throw a Wrench a monkey wrench into the engine, you know Simplify things and and get things expedited so that people could work and buy things and get along with their life That's what a kind of politics I want to be involved in. Yeah, does that sound good to you? Okay, I'll take it and I will add to it. What is good for a community is a humor, right? Yeah, yes to make fun of everything you can because that apparently Extend a life span it does and we're talking itself month. So, you know, hopefully we're making you smile I just oh, yeah, I'm gonna I'm gonna just hit play on these two morons Did you just call me that I called us that well don't know I just did I just insult morons Speaking the health I have to share something with everybody here. Yeah That is something that I experience in whole day So since six o 'clock in the morning, I actually woke up five. I went to sleep 230 so I got a couple hours with sleeping as a new dolphin with one eye open and So I don't know where sleep and then I was scheduled to go to one facility in four Myers and I have to share the experience with everybody and and kind of lift people with You know that that may end up there for different reasons, right? And just wanted to prepare them that that that facility is above and beyond so If you have a little person or a little human child Good child child home and need the assistance with the doctors and you have to be Seeking the medical, you know professionals in the hospital There is a hospital. It's called Golisano Children's Hospital, Southwest, Florida It's a in ninety nine eighty one south health park in four Myers And that's why I end up today drove there one hour to meet. Dr. Michael car, which is Absolutely top Why the arch what he does and I have to tell you we were so lucky to have Him to provide us the expert services which was probably procedure of 30 minutes, but all around took almost all day and Michael car doctor that been practicing over 35 years is retiring So if you planning to have some kind of problem In in the field of pediatric urology you very hurry up because he's gonna be gone and one of the top doctors from Philadelphia will disappear in retirement. You may see him on a beach or somewhere else But if you have the chance to get in his hands for any type of care It's unbelievable you come to the hospital This is this is how I expect if I have to go to hospital or anybody has to go to hospital This is how I expected my experience in some of the hospital here in locally in Naples Never been good. Okay, I have to say that and for many reasons, but this Hospital is top -notch you arrive people smiling on you. You know, the check -in is very smooth They never make you feel nervous or you should be nervous or somehow make you feel like, you know, something is going on especially when This goes about kids So, you know, there's so much that you think of and the kids, you know in an unknown space is it's a hospital So maybe some of them never been there and then you go through all this process checking out before surgeries and everything else absolutely top -notch Every single person from the greeters on the door to the people that will direct you and and the you know Tell you what's gonna happen you receiving throughout a surgery you receiving text messages.

"To mid eighties. I'm Kim McAllister kgo attacks Between President Biden and Russian leader Vladimir Putin. Despite the views of some pundits that it would be relatively meaningless. I think a lot was accomplished start with cyber security, which is the latest and potentially biggest issue, causing friction between Russia and the United States. Of course. Putin denied any Russian involvement in the recent cyber attacks on U. S food and transportation interests, referencing the breach of colonial pipeline, which the US has blamed on Russia based hackers. Putin asked what a Russian authorities have to do with this. But unlike the last summit between Putin and then President Donald Trump, our new president pushed hard on the issue. Making it clear there will be a proportionate response. Should Russian involvement be proven in what seems to be a barely disguise threat? Biden said he s Putin. Well, how would you feel if Ransomware took down the pipelines from your oil fields? My guess is that Putin will continue denying everything. And to some degree that might be true. I believe the theory that many of these cyber crimes may not have been planned and carried out directly by the Russian government, but with the work of criminal syndicates. Operating inside Russia while the government turned a blind eye, Biden said the two sides agreed to have experts in both countries work on specific understandings about what is off limits in terms of cyber crime. And then follow up on specific cases in the U. S. And Russia that may originate in other countries. Look, American officials didn't go into the summit thinking Putin would suddenly change his mind and see things our way. Instead, they wanted Biden to spell out the clear consequences for cybercrime and to set up a framework for the president to at least be able to communicate with Putin about the threat. I was very impressed with Biden for ignoring the Russian warnings not to bring up jailed Russian opposition leader Alexey Navalny, the biggest challenger to Putin's rule. Biden says he made it clear to Putin that the consequences would be devastating for Russia. If Navalny were to die in prison. In the end, the summit was very business like with Biden, saying he did what he came to do and that the tone of the meeting was good and positive. Putin described the summit as constructive. Calling Biden a balanced and professional man who is very experienced, Putin added. It seems to me that we did speak the same language. Nonetheless, Putin cautioned, It certainly doesn't imply that we looked into each other's eyes and found a soul or swore eternal friendship. On a side note. If you watch CNN a lot like me, you're probably quite familiar with CNN's chief White House correspondent Caitlin Collins. She's a solid reporter knows politics and scores points with me because I have no clue whether she's conservative or liberal Republican or Democrat After President Biden ended the press conference yesterday and moved towards the exit, Collins shouted. Why are you so confident he'll change his behavior, Mr President. Biden then walk towards Collins with his finger in the air, saying, I'm not confident he'll change his behavior. What the hell? What do you do all the time? When did I say I was confident When Collins followed up by asking how they're meeting could be considered constructive. Biden erupted again, saying, if you don't understand that you're in the wrong business. He then stormed off, but later issued an apology to Collins, saying he shouldn't have been such a wise guy. Collins said The apology was unnecessary. The obvious question is why did he stop to reply? By the press conference was over. No one would jump on him for ignoring it. My cynical idea is that this was a bit of a setup. There are many Americans who are concerned about his being too much of a good guy the way he handled, Collins showed he has a temper and isn't a pushover. An interesting message to send following the summit with Putin. Just a thought. That's the Ron Owen's report every weekday at 11 30 again at 3.
