We're 5 Minutes Away From Biden Getting Booted From the 2024 Race
"Serious campaign operatives charge top dollar if the donors go to Biden and say Joey boom bots we are not going to donate to you anymore it's over it doesn't matter if he wants to run he is gonna be out and we are about five minutes away from that happening for a number reasons the guy's polls are terrible and second he as we've said often has oatmeal for brains my wife eats that mush stuff sometimes that like cold oatmeal that's his brain it's like cause not even hot oatmeal it's like mush he can't think straight here Jim queue up for me James Rosen James Rosen is a great reporter he's at the White House yesterday and in probably the first honest question outside of Peter Doocy in the Brady press room in forever I'm not even gonna play the answer cuz you don't even need to hear it Jimmy turns it's dumb she's like a key creature appears it's a question about polls oh yeah we listen to people to dumb answer it doesn't matter you don't need the answer I just want you to listen to the question because she freaked out when Rosen asked this question about the polls know and didn't what to say check this out in February the president conducted an interview with I believe it was Telemundo and he was asked about the dismal state of his job approval ratings and he answered in words to this effect do you know that believes the polling these days and he talked in some detail about the difficulty of getting people on the phone and compiling accurate polling whenever you're asked about the president's dismal job approval ratings you say we're not going to look at polls we look at his accomplishments and yet when you are asked about various domestic policy initiatives you will say these poll very well people support what the president wants to do if you look at the individual subjects on the polling they support what the president's agenda is so once and for all are only certain polls valid in your eyes the ones that support your agenda or is the polling data that shows that president has been stuck for two years at the low 40s and his approval ratings are those valid maybe the greatest question to ever come out of the press room one minute Biden's citing the polls when they reflect nicely or not badly nothing reflects well on Biden but they're just not bad and then when other polls come out showing Biden in a catastrophic freefall black voters Hispanic voters economic public approval border safety oh yeah don't pay attention to the polls the answer was just dumb that's why I didn't bother if to I didn't waste want your time how to cut a minute and you know I don't like clips more than a minute and she's like no no not you're not listening to the people they are clearly disturbed that is lack of mental fitness and here's how I'll prove they're not listening to the people Jim cut 10 this is short it's only a little over 10 seconds Korean John Piers asked about mush brains Biden how this guy obviously has some cognitive deficit it's serious they got folks listen to me and I you know so now if I've ever meant anything on this show I mean this yell at me scream at me I want I don't care it is unethical and immoral to champion someone's cognitive decline it just is refused to do it I do not want to see this guy fall on his face and smash his face open in front of the high world he's an 81 year old man yes he's the single most destructive political force in US history and I wish he'd died but I'm telling you that it is we are potentially minutes or days away from this guy taking a massive tumble down the stairs I'm not kidding and getting seriously hurt it is that bad look at his gate and his shuffle he can't do anything anymore everybody sees it yet here's Karine Jean -Pierre's answer when asked the question the whole world can see about his mental fitness check this out I would put the president's stamina, president's wisdom ability to get this done on behalf of the American people against anyone on any day of the week I mean really man again that's why Karine Jean Jean -Pierre's just a buffoon that's your answer I'm not saying she's got to go up there and go listen my boss is cognitively struggling I guess she's not gonna say that I do of course but just be candid here's how you do it I'm not no I'm serious if you were a PR person they're not gonna take my advisor
How Can Anyone Claim Pastor John Hagee Is "Praising Hitler"?
"You have their funding sources and their links in our own country. You have them undermining Israel at the time of war. And this is what they do. This is why you hate them and you should hate them. What is SCUFAR, Christians United for Israel? Here's their mission statement. It's the largest pro -Israel organization in the United States with over 10 million members Christians United for Israel is the foremost Christian organization educating and empowering millions of Americans to speak and act with one voice in defense of Israel and the Jewish people. CUFI's diversity across political, ethnic, generational and denominational lines maximizes our impact media, in communities, on campus and in the in our nation's capital. CUFI is committed to confronting a difference in combating anti semitism in all its forms wherever it may be found. That's very different than Hamas's mission statement which I don't believe has been read by any news operation from beginning to end. Number one it's quite long but number two it is self threatening. And here this group founded by Dan Abrams is trashing one of the foremost leaders in the Christian world. Defending the state of Israel. Trying to tie him to Hitler. This is really shocking. But I guess it's really not. Benjamin Netanyahu himself has been the Jewish leader of the Jewish state. By the radical left in his country and our country. Kufai was created in February 2006 as a grassroots movement designed to unify Christians across all denominations and cultural boundaries in support of Israel. was media founded? Why God knows why.
A highlight from The Best Altcoins To Buy This Week! (Act Fast)
"This may not be the optimal market to start DCAing into coins for long -term holds, but right now is the optimal time for trading with a lot of amazing trade setups presenting themselves every single week. So in today's video, I'm going to run through the 14, yes, 14 trade setups, all of which are long setups this week, because you know what happens when you try to fight the trend, you get wrecked. This is a market where as long as the uptrend lasts, is your friend until the end of the trend. And that means we long more than we short. So today I have 14 long setups I want to discuss with you. Most of the setups are a little bit shorter term, like mostly focused on this week, but a couple are a little bit longer term, I would say like in the three to four month range. Not focusing on super long term trades here, but still definitely going to have some alpha for you in today's video as to what altcoins I think could be part of a rotation. As we're seeing right now, basically narratives hop from narrative to narrative as traders seem to be rotating profits into different sectors. And we're going to discuss where I think that rotation could take us. 14 very different altcoins in today's show. We're going to cover a couple narratives like gaming, like ZK, and hopefully you enjoy. Smash the like button if you are enjoying the content at the moment. Let's just start with Bitcoin. An interesting observation to make on Bitcoin is that the last time it had four consecutive weekly candles in a row to the upside, as you can see, like we have currently gotten, it actually did this in early January and ended up reversing for two weeks before continuing an uptrend. So I mean, just because it happened once doesn't mean we're necessarily going to get like a sustained pullback now. But I think what needs to happen and what the market is already starting to show us with weekly open here is that Bitcoin needs a little bit of a cooldown. Now a cooldown is not bad for altcoins. A cooldown, if Bitcoin just moves sideways, maybe a little bit down is actually good for altcoins because it gives the alt some breathing room. It takes the wind out of Bitcoin sales a little bit and gives the alt some room to run. So what I want to see longer term is definitely a sustained increase in Bitcoin dominance that shows liquidity is flowing into Bitcoin. And then eventually I want to see that siphon off into the alts. So I actually want to see dominance pushing up to 60 % for a really healthy market. So altcoins can have a sustained run. But for now, if Bitcoin just cools and alts run a little bit, that's okay for now. Another interesting thing to note is that Bloomberg analysts still expect a 90 % chance of a Bitcoin spot ETF approval by the 10th of January. At the moment, the SEC has another five days to approve an ETF. If they don't approve it, then they're going to have to delay until January. So we could see an approval this week. I don't think this will be the case, but it is a possibility given the fact this week we are in an approval window. So definitely look for some volatility on Bitcoin. All right, let's get into the official list of altcoins that I'm looking at my weekly watch list. By the way, this is a show that I've been doing pretty much every week, but obviously now there's extra attention on the show because we're finally getting some market movers. If you looked at my watch list last week, basically I think six out of the seven tokens that I listed all ended up in profits. We had some amazing trades from that watch list. So congratulations to everyone that got involved there. Hopefully from this week's watch list, similarly, we have some good trades that come out of this one as well. The first place I want to start is ThorChain. What you need to understand about ThorChain is that it's the ultimate bull market token. Because of its reflexive mechanism, the more capital that goes into Roon, basically the better the yields end up being because they need to incentivize LPs to stake tokens in the pools to balance out the Roon LP because Roon is pumped in price, right? So when you have a higher APR, a lot of people ape into Roon, increasing the TVL. We can see the TVL is skyrocketing at the moment, as you can see here. And what that means is that Roon has this really explosive effect, this compounding effect, this flywheel when the market starts to deposit into Roon. So Roon is actually pretty much the ultimate bull market token. In a bear market, it's the opposite. It's one of the worst tokens because it gets hit really hard the other way. When the Roon price is going down, the yields tank. A lot of people exit the ecosystem because remember, to facilitate omni -chain swaps, what Roon does is it basically has LPs where you're required to hold an asset one to one with Roon. So if you want to swap from, let's say, Ethereum to Bitcoin, you're going to need in the omni -pool your Roon pairing with Ethereum and Bitcoin in order to facilitate that swap. So that's why in a bull market it does really well and in a bear market it does really bad. Because we're in a bull trend at the moment, Roon is clearly performing really well. It's one of the strongest performers in the market at the moment. And for that reason, if we do see a pullback like we're seeing right now, this is one that I'll look to ladder into on continuation. As I mentioned at the start of the video, this is really a traders market and it's a market where you probably want to be longing more than you are shorting. And when we're longing more than we're shorting, we want to look at the strongest coins. There are a few rotational players that I want to talk about but you generally want to look at the strongest coins and on any major pullbacks you can use them as dip buying opportunities, not for spot but for trades only. So depending on your risk tolerance, you can use different amounts of leverage. Some people, if you have more capital, you'll prefer spot trading. For me, I actually do a fair bit of spot trading so I might go in with a bigger position or a low leverage position because I don't want to get wicked out like we saw on the 10th of November. But here are some levels that you can look at to enter Roon on the pullback. The major level I'm looking at is this cross section here between the horizontal and the upwards diagonal trend which comes at around $4. If Roon somehow makes its way back down there, I don't think it will. This would be an amazing zone to do some buying. If not, then you do have this zone right here at the 4 .7 area that could be an interesting look as a small ladder in zone. You could probably ladder in here and then your last gasp is at $3 .60. If it starts breaking this trend, then that looks really bad that it's just going to reverse all the way back down. I don't think that's going to happen though. I think momentum for Roon has been upwards and as such, we should treat it with respect and it's certainly what I'm looking to have a nibble at if we continue to get any sort of sustained pullback in terms of trading, of course, not long -term. Long -term positions will be on more key high time frame supports. If you want to learn a bit more about that, I actually uploaded a video called If You Miss The Crypto Rally Follows This Exact Roadmap, which talks about long -term investing. So today is the short -term show. Yesterday, if you go onto the channel and go onto my playlist, and there's also a playlist linked in the description, that will give you a roadmap for the spot side of things. In terms of buying spot Roon, you want to be doing so on key support levels on the higher time frames because we don't like to buy long -term positions on the shorter time frames. It just doesn't make or the lower time frames. It just doesn't make any sense, right? 4 swaps an interesting play now starting to wake up as well being the main decks on Roon. This is definitely a 4 beta play or a Roon beta play rather. So 4 is definitely what I'm looking at in a similar gist to what I'm doing with Roon. Any major pullbacks probably going to gobble them up from a trading point of view. And you can also see they closed with an all -time high trading volume right now. A lot of people are actually using Roon to swap, which is an amazing thing and great for the ecosystem. So that's Roon. Now I want to talk about Solana because Solana is in a similar position to Roon in the sense that being one of the most explosive price movers. But it's kind of an interesting spot, right? Because it's come all the way up from what $15 to $53 in price. It actually hit $60 for a brief period of time. Spot holders don't know if they should take profits here. Traders don't know if they should be longing here. It's kind of in a weird position. But if we look at Sol, we can see that it broke above the key weekly resistance at the $48 level. So for me, a pullback into this zone similar to a buying opportunity, because I think what tends to happen with these coins is the most explosive move happens last. We haven't, I don't think seen that blow off top yet. And I may be wrong, this $65 zone could have been this blow off top. But I still have a feeling that we get that final thrust from Solana that just squeezes all those shorts that are now starting to pile up a little bit. And that will be your final blow off top for Solana. So because I think there's a tiny bit of juice left in the lemon here, I would be looking at any major pullback similarly to Rune continuing to ladder in until the trend reverses. Happy to kind of lose a bit of money trying to play this game considering that the upside is fairly immense in my opinion, if you can hit that trade. So Solana is one that I'd be interested in longing on a major pullback. You know the key level on the weekly. Obviously, you want to confirm that with lower timeframe trade setups because you have a fantastic level to look at. And on let's say the one hourly, the four hourly, that's when you'd actually be entering. Okay, let's move on to a new subset of tokens. These are the tokens that haven't moved. I know Rune and Solana have moved aggressively and we are playing the by the dip game, I guess on those ones. But some of the coins I want to talk about now actually haven't really moved. Now they have moved because the whole market's moved, but just not as much like Polygon hasn't done a 5x like Solana has or you know, 6x, 7x like Rune has. It is significantly up of course, but there is a really interesting narrative starting to brew here and that's the ZK narrative. So if you actually remember back to earlier in the year, January, February, some of the strongest performers alongside like AI and LSDs were the ZK coins. There was a lot of ZK hype and Matic being your biggest coin in this ZK basket of coins tends to be a market leader and it also happens to have this big announcement happening on November 14th which is garnering a leader of the ZK sector if ZK starts to wake up. Because right now we're in this rotational market, we saw Solana rotate into Avalanche, we saw that rotate into Phantom, we saw gaming pop off, we're seeing all these narratives pop off, AI popped off last week. I think next, a narrative that hasn't really popped off, but one that did in January is ZK. So Matic's definitely one of them. In terms of trading this, you do have your major support at 76, but what I would be more interested in is a break of the 92 cent level on the four hourly. Any confirmation above this level would be a decent entry in my opinion and you can see this level mapped out on the daily chart as your key resistance that we're currently trying to test at the moment. If we break that level, then suddenly we can look at a scenario that happened earlier in the year in February, as I said during that ZK run, where Matic ran all the way to 150. A 150 Matic in this run is not out of the question at all. In fact, I think it could happen if ZK gains steam. So that's what I'm keeping my eye on. Now let's talk about some of the other ZK protocols, but before we get into that, while we're speaking on the topic of Polygon, if you do want to earn any yield on the Polygon side, you can go to the farming page on SmartX, which is one of our official show partners. It's an AMM, which reduces the negative effects of impermanent loss and sometimes leads to impermanent gain that currently offers some of the most competitive, in fact, the best rates on the Polygon side for yield farming. So you can see in front of you, you've got 30 to 40 % APRs on a variety of pools, which as I said, have a mechanism which reduces impermanent loss, which is obviously one of the biggest headaches when it comes to Lping in crypto. So I highly recommend using the link in the description below to check out SmartX if you are interested in farming, or you can also do swapping on SmartX and get some of the best swap in the market as well. Link in the description below to check out SmartX. I've got some big announcements coming soon that I'm excited to share with you as well, so stay tuned for that. So let's talk about some of the other ZK protocols. So if Matic starts to make a run here, what will I long? Well, I'm going to long the leaders. I'm not going to try and pick the laggards in this sector. I want to pick the strongest coins in this sector. If we look back to the last run, as I mentioned at the start of the year, some of the best performers were Mina Protocol, Loop Ring, Nute and Dusk. So these are the ones I'm looking at because the market's really familiar with them. I think there's a bit of synergy here with that narrative in these coins. So those are some of the ones I'm looking at. But whatever leads in this sector after Polygon, those will be the ones that I'm interested in. And you can see Polygon and Immutable, the two biggest ZK protocols have run, but a lot of the others haven't run yet. So I think it's a narrative that's flying slightly under the radar, but I think it'll catch up quick once it starts to gain steam. So as a rotational play, this is definitely one that I'm interested in this week. Another one I'm interested in, which is already starting to pump, but probably has a little more upside left in it, is Sei Network. Now we know how explosive these career pumps have been in recent times. Pretty much every token that's been listed on Korean exchange a bit has exploded. We saw this earlier in the year with Sui and Aptos. We've recently seen it with Mina Protocol. Now we're on its pair on Upbit. So Sei is definitely one that I'm watching. It's catching a strong career pump. It has moved, but Sei is what I would call a new coin, right? It's a coin that has launched in the bear market. It's newer. It has pumpermentals because there's less underwater bag holders, and it still is down from its original trading price on its first day. Not from IDO price, but from the peak that it hit on its first day because it had a huge pump, ended up coming back down. It did hit its low of, what is it, like 0 .09 here. It's now started to move back up to 0 .15, but that's less than a 2X on a coin that has, as I said, pumpermentals. It's obviously a trading blockchain built in the Cosmos ecosystem. So some interesting stuff with Sei. If you do want an entry here, I mean, you could look to get an initial position, but if you're using leverage, you want to be careful. I mean, this is kind of not really a great place to trade. Obviously on one hourly, you might be able to find, it depends how, like if you're trading breakouts, you could probably look for like a breakout of this trend here. By the time you're watching this video, it might be too late. So the best I can do for you is actually looking on the four hourly and showing you these key support levels. The 0 .1344 level, if we do get some sort of confluence with the horizontal and diagonal trend here, this would be a great pocket to buy in. But any zone along this major support zone will be an area that I load up, but it does depend on your trading strategy. If you are a high leverage trader, you want to be a lot more precise. Me, I'll either go in this with spot or super low leverage. So I'm not so concerned about getting the exact entry. I'm just trying to really catch it for the uptrend. So depends how you trade, of course, if you're trying to snipe that entry, got to be a lot more careful. For me, a much lower leverage than your average person because I found that's what works for me because I don't have time just personally to sit in front of my computer all day and snipe entries. That's not me. I much more size. So let's say instead of taking a 2k position, I'll take let's say a 10k or a 15k spot position. And then I can't get wrecked on margin, which has been helping me a lot. Or I'll just go in with like a 3x leverage position. So it would take a lot to shake me out of a trade. So that is one I'm looking at. Similarly to say another coin that has pumpamentals and has shown this in recent times as another new coin is Celestia. Remember guys, the new coins can pump so much harder than all coins in the market. That's why I've been saying for a long time, you should definitely keep your eye on the new coins from both accumulation and a trading perspective. Celestia, by the way, is one if you've been following me on Twitter that you may have gotten an airdrop for because I did an airdrop guide last year and I included Celestia and this could end up being one of the most lucrative airdrops of the year. Congrats to anyone that watched that guide or watch my tweet and got involved because right now if you held your Celestia bag, you'd won to $2 ,000 but for some people it could be a lot more if you use multiple wallets. So I think this one is fantastic and there's a few people that have been coming out and saying that it's this cycle's soul. Smartestmoney .eth, it's an account I respect. The number one coin m p &l trader on Binance, that's pretty crazy, that is very crazy actually, has added spot to a massive seed position quote unquote and basically said watch and learn wannabes. These guys out here buying salt while I'm buying the next Solana. Big call but I mean the market cap is reasonably valued 700 mil okay five bill fdvs a lot but we know in the short term the circulating supply definitely goes to dictate how explosive the price moves can be market cap 700 mils reasonable at rank 71 calling it the next soul I don't know I like this one I like it as a spot play but not maybe after this massive pump in terms of a trade though super interesting now actually on support trend you'll notice a lot of coins are following the same trend they have a diagonal up trend as long as they stick to that trend you long if they start to break down below you've got to be a little bit wary but they've also got these horizontal support levels that they make after their retracements so this is actually a good one too long there's a couple of levels here for you to look out for on the one hourly on Celestia so that's an interesting one and let's move into some of the final narratives here I've got two more to share with you and both of these include a variety of alt coins so the first one is perpetuals I think if this volatility is to remain in the market we could definitely see perpetuals performing well we're starting to see a catch up in terms of price and fundamentals despite that not being the case a couple of weeks ago and if you see in front of you volume is performing really well this is purpose trading season this is an on -chain aping season this is the season where people are trading perps I think the centralized exchanges are doing the best that's where most people are trading but I think decks could catch up and for this reason as well as the fact that I think volatility could remain for the foreseeable future I think the perp decks remain super interesting looks at the moment not for short -term trades this week but over let's say the medium term so two to three months maybe even six months so these are definitely ones I've got my eye on dydx I'm going to do a video on this week that's a very interesting trade GMX and gains network being the ones that are kind of your decks perp decks proxies and a few others and as you can see on the weekly a lot of these are barely moved so especially like GMX and games they're a very interesting look in my opinion and if you do want to snipe better entries on a coin like GMX I recommend you use Kyber AI which is a software that basically tells you the momentum of a coin based on a variety of on -chain indicators like the number and types of trades trading volume net flow to whale wallets and what I would do on a coin like GMX is essentially if you're lining up a buy and let's say you want to start buying when shifts momentum what I would look for is a pattern like this where it shifts from bearish into bullish territory now since this video is not live you're gonna have to open your up your own Kyber AI using the link in the description below to see where it currently is but right now this would actually be potentially an interesting place to long GMX if on the lower time frames it lines up with what the Kyber score is showing which is basically bearish price momentum shown by a strong reversal so heading back into bullish territory as you can see buys are now starting to outpace cells and volume is also up ticking across GMX all of those are metrics that go into the Kyber score Kyber score is one of my favorite metrics in crypto if you go to rankings you can actually sort by market cap I love doing this so I go more than 500 million for the large caps that you can actually trade perps on and you can see which coins are looking the most bullish this can help you get entries in the market especially in a bullish market like this searching for the bullish coins can be an amazing way especially using on -chain analysis to get better trading entries so link in the description to check out Kyber AI it's an extremely useful tool especially for confluence with getting trading entries and crypto bad to subscribers will get early access versus the rest of the pack so link in the description below of course it's free so not showing you anything paid it is a free service to use the last narrative I want to talk about quickly is one I think people are forgetting about it has had a bit of a pullback um but it's the gaming narrative into YGG the reason I say people are forgetting people aren't forgetting about gaming there's a lot of talk about crypto gaming on twitter but I think they're forgetting about one of the biggest gaming conferences in five days time starting on November 18th it lasts for a week there definitely could be some I mean a lot of the major projects are speaking there so there could be some interesting announcements and even if not I think there's bound to be hype into that conference so for that reason definitely keep your eye on the gaming projects there's two in particular that I like YGG because it's their conference and this is now having a pullback into a decent zone in my opinion and also GMT which on the weekly and I know once again you don't enter short -term trades on the weekly but on the weekly if it can pull back down into this pocket at 0 .22 and confirm this is support and if you line that up with your lower time frame indicators of course that could be a decent zone also to enter a GMT trade so gaming is something I'm not going to fade the bees are kind of going from one narrative to another but gaming is one that I've got my eye on ahead of the conference so I hope you enjoyed this video these are all the narratives I'm looking at right now mostly short -term some medium to long -term hope you enjoyed this was fast it was alpha packed let me know in the comments below if there are any other coins I should look at and I'll see you in the next one. Peace out.
Treat Others the Way THEY Want to Be Treated With Ciara Lynch
"You know the way like people often say like treat people how you want to be treated that's not actually true like you should actually treat people how they want to be treated because it's exactly to your point for some people like public recognition is horrifying yes there were times you would think not giving someone more hours is a good thing but you're right if someone is trying to save then it isn't so I think that's amazing that you're bringing that in to the farm as a workplace I suppose our biggest thing is you get that you're trying to be like an employer of choice yes yeah you know we just want to suppose create a place where people are happy coming to work and like there's a couple of the you know and I'll know if they're having a good day or a bad day because they'll they'll like if they're happy I just they'll be whistling they'll be singing they'll be you know do their work or do their jobs whereas I know okay if he's quiet and you know you'll kind of get down to the crux of the issue there really quickly but yeah it's it's just it's trying to create a really nice workplace as nice as possible and look we don't always get it right you know there's always going to be a couple of people who don't agree with how you do things and that's just life that's nature you know that's just human human elements on it because when you're in our business there's there's times where it's really you know it's high pressure like calving season I'm sure you remember from you know from growing up my calving season is full on like it is I always say if I'm to compare it to like my marketing spiel it's like it's pitch week yes for 12 weeks straight and then you have you know a nice maybe two or three week break and then you're into breeding season which is like double pitch week that's like coming down to the crunch that is you know we're just going to find on the new flight but we need to make sure that all of these things are done yeah and you're exhausted you're emotionally drained you are you're you're spent and then you go back into like another another heavy 12 weeks so we always kind of say like from february to the very june don't knock on the door um called in our house because we're just like zombies and but you have to be and that's where you really have to be aware of how people are behaving and just kind of monitoring people's behavior are you doing okay do you know do you need extra time off you know what's going on are you feeling all right because it's a busy time it can be really stressful this spring in particular was really tough on all farmers the weather just was it rained from March pretty much straight through to May you know and that puts physical pressure on because I mean cows supposed to be out normally we'd be lucky enough we'd have cows out kind of by the end of february we still have cows in shed in May and that takes us to the body and the mind right is it ever and you know you know at some point it will stop
A highlight from ETF Excitement Drives Bitcoin Past $36,000
"Welcome back to The Breakdown with me, NLW. It's a daily podcast on macro, Bitcoin, and the big picture power shifts remaking our world. What's going on, guys? It is Thursday, November 9th, and today we are talking about Bitcoin's breakout and all of the bullish sentiment shift. But, before we get into that, if you are enjoying The Breakdown, please go subscribe to it, give it a rating, give it a review, or if you want to dive deeper into the conversation, come join us on the Breakers Discord. You can find a link in the show notes or go to bit .ly slash breakdown pod. Hello friends. Well, yesterday, as you know, we pivoted to bullishness, put the SPF trial behind us, and faced firmly forward, and boy, has today extended the excitement. So much so that I'm actually not even really covering the biggest bull thing from today, which is BlackRock registering an Ethereum spot ETF that happened just as I was finishing, so I am sure that that will be front and center tomorrow. For now, let's kick off today with a tweet from Steven Lubka, who's the Managing Director and Head of Private Clients and Family Offices at Swan. He tweets, I love how Bitcoin itself determines how busy my day is going to be. Today is going to be crazy. Thanks for almost cracking $37k overnight. So let's start this report with the ETF speculation. Grayscale has opened talks with the SEC in an attempt to finally move forward with the conversion of the Grayscale Bitcoin trust into an ETF. Grayscale sources said the company is now in active discussions with the SEC's division of trading and markets and the division of corporate finance. Both divisions play a key role in deciding ETF applications. Now, Grayscale, of course, won its lawsuit against the SEC in August, with the court ruling that the SEC must reconsider the firm's application to convert GBTC. If the SEC wanted to deny the application, it would need to come up with some new reasons after their existing rationale was found to be arbitrary and capricious. Craig Salm, Grayscale's chief legal officer, said, Right now, we're just laser focused on constructively re -engaging with trading and markets. There are still things that have to be worked through. He added that, Overall, it's been good engagement and it's a matter of when, not a matter of if anymore. Grayscale CEO Michael Sonenshine also confirmed that discussions with the SEC have commenced. He told Bloomberg that his team have been busy filing the required documents, which quote, When pressed for a timeline for approval, Sonenshine chuckled, noting that, Timelines are certainly not something that has been discussed, but what I can tell you is that the SEC is constructively engaging at the moment. We remain optimistic that we will get through any final hurdles that need to be there and our investors will finally get what they've been waiting for. Now, the market, for its part, clearly thinks the conversion is likely to be approved. The GBTC discount has now closed to 12 % from over 40 % back in June. It's the smallest discount since November of 2021. Now, widening to the rest of the pool of potential ETFs, Bloomberg analysts reported that the SEC has a brief eight -day window to approve all 12 spot Bitcoin ETFs at the same time, which begins today. ETFs are generally not approved while they are still open for public comment following an SEC decision. That comment period concluded today for seven of the ETFs, which were delayed as a group in late September. James Safart, one of the Bloomberg ETF analysts, followed up in a Twitter thread explaining that, If the agency wants to allow all 12 fliers to launch, as we believe, this is the first available window since Grayscale's court victory was affirmed. Now on November 17th, comment periods will reopen for three of the applications from GlobalX, Hashdex, and Franklin Templeton when they hit their next SEC deadline for approval or delay. That would leave the SEC able to approve only nine of the 12 applications until January. Safart, with some assistance from finance lawyer Scott Johnson, added some extra detail to the situation. They explained that there are two approvals required before the ETFs can begin trading. The SEC would need to approve the proposed rule changes, and then a separate division of the regulator would need to sign off on product disclosure forms known as an S -1. Johnson tweeted, If there's a hypothetical approval this week, there's probably minimum a month and probably a couple before any ETF actually launches. S -1's still under review and no real hard deadline for that process. Though I consider it more a formality at that stage. Would be a wild period. Safart agreed, stating that possible and even likely that there could be weeks or even months between approval and launch. This is in line with comments made by Valkyrie CIO Stephen McClurg last week, who said, A late November approval likely means a February launch. Now his view was that the SEC would likely wait until the new year to ask firms to put finishing touches on their S -1 filings before they were given the green light. Adding a little more intrigue to the process, SEC chair Gary Gensler released another one of his little videos. This one was an explanation of the Division of Corporation Finance, the group which has recently been giving feedback on ETF applicants on their S -1s. Gensler emphasized that the SEC is a quote merit neutral regulator. He explained that the basic bargain of US capital markets is that quote, investors get to decide what risk they take so long as public companies make complete and truthful disclosure. Now of course, the timing of this could be nothing, but some viewed it as a meaningful indication of what has been going on behind closed doors at the SEC. Senior Bloomberg ETF analyst Eric Balcones tweeted, Could be a coincidence, but probably not. They did preapproval educational stuff ahead of BITO approval as well. Also, I feel like this is his way of saying, look, we aren't endorsing these ETFs, we're just trying to disclose all the possible risks so you can decide. Hands washed. Investor Adam Cochrane reiterated the point, tweeting, Usually this kind of stuff is posted by the SEC as like a disclaimer before they approve things they don't like. For example, last time was four days before they approved the BITO futures ETF. We guess this puts Bitcoin ETF approvals at less than one week now. As one final little indication that things could be moving behind the scenes at the SEC, commissioners and staff attended a closed door meeting this afternoon. The agenda included quote, institution and settlement of administrative proceedings and resolution of litigation claims. These kinds of meetings are held as needed and we don't have any further detail to confirm the commissioners are voting on ETF approvals, but holding a meeting is a much stronger indicator than not holding a meeting. To sum up, analysts' current expectations is that the entire cohort of ETFs are likely to be approved at the same time so as not to pick winners and that this could all happen as soon as this week. After that approval, disclosure statements will need to be finalized before the ETFs can be launched, which seems likely to take weeks, if not months. Notably, Bloomberg analysts have not adjusted their odds for full approvals in January up from 90%. They're also leaving their odds at an approval for this year at 70%. There's currently no real expectation that ETFs will begin trading until early next year. All commentary has carried a very prominent disclaimer that approvals are far from guaranteed, but between all of these little indications, market sentiment is clearly pointing towards a Bitcoin ETF approval. Crypto trader AvocadoToast tweeted, ETF thesis is pretty simple, 90 % odds of approval by Jan 10th could happen any day really. Announcement, immediate FOMO to speculate, scramble to search for ETF tokens on DexTools screener and Twitter, find top choice ETF because first mover most liquid highest market cap most trustworthy one, mash buy button candle loads. We all know this is going to happen. Let's just skip the song and dance. Blockworks Jason Yanowitz said, this market still severely underestimates how insane it will be to have Bitcoin ETF approvals and Bitcoin having within 60 days of each other will be obvious in hindsight. Now all of this ETF speculation has of course been extremely positive for Bitcoin price action. The market tested the $36 ,000 level for the third time late on Wednesday evening and effortlessly broke through. Bitcoin settled at a new level of around $36 ,700 overnight. Now Matrixport said earlier on Wednesday that they expected the breakout above $36 ,000 to be imminent. Following on from that correct prediction, the firm said that they believed a sustained rally to follow. Their report stated, the Santa Claus rally could start at any moment with a steady increase in buyers during US trading hours and an ongoing attempt for Bitcoin to break out. We could see prices rallying into the end of the month and year. Matrixport included some macro commentary recognizing that this Bitcoin run has been supported by dovish federal reserve messaging, reducing long -term debt issuance from the treasury and a continued slowdown in inflation. They noted that above $36 ,000 there's a lot of fresh air considering how rapidly prices collapsed in early 2022. The report stated that quote, a break above $36 ,000 could propel Bitcoin toward our next technical resistance level at $40 ,000 potentially reaching $45 ,000 by the end of 2023. Now along these same lines, the Chicago Mercantile Exchange or CME, which hosts the highest volume market for Bitcoin futures in the US has continued to see a rush of trading. Open interest for Bitcoin futures has increased by 35 % over the past four weeks, moving above 100 ,000 Bitcoin for the first time. Indeed, the CME is snapping at the heels of Binance as the dominant market for Bitcoin futures trading. Binance currently has a little over 24 % of the market while the CME is closing in with 22 .7%. Now, according to K33 research, the two week price consolidation around 35 ,000 has primed bullish sentiment. Over the last two weeks, dips have been bought and Bitcoin has remained in a $2 ,000 range. That range, of course, is now broken to the upside, but the analysis still seems relevant. K33 observed that with Bitcoin range bound, altcoins have had a chance to run. We've seen numerous tokens achieve gains above 10 % in the past two weeks, which has brought the total crypto market cap back up to $1 .4 trillion for the first time since the Luna collapse. Bitcoin dominance softened slightly as a result of this altcoin run, but remained above 50%. Now, maybe most interestingly, volumes during US trading hours are dominating the market, vastly outstripping other regions. Premiums on front month options have exploded with calls settled at the end of November showing a 16 % annualized premium. ETF inflows continue to be strong, with the pro shares Bitcoin futures ETF BITO just receiving its third highest weekly inflow since November 2021. Now, despite the rush of activity in derivatives markets, Bitcoin's implied volatility remains below its three year average. This indicates that markets are priced for slow, grinding price action rather than sudden spikes.
A highlight from The LayerZero Airdrop Is Almost Here! How To Prepare NOW!
"Layer Zero is one of the most anticipated projects in crypto. In today's video, I want to run through a few major things to do with the Layer Zero airdrop. Is it too late to qualify for what could be one of the biggest airdrops in crypto history? If it is, how can you still make money from the Layer Zero ecosystem and how can you prepare yourself for an impending airdrop? Some of the indicators that I'm going to show you in today's video show us that a potential airdrop could be happening very, very soon. So if you've been following Layer Zero at all over the past couple of years, you should pay attention to today's video. So looking in front of us, it's clear that Layer Zero is one of the biggest projects in crypto just by sheer size in terms of how much they've raised. They raised $6 .3 million to begin with, relatively humble beginnings, but still led by MultiCoin Capital and Binance. But then they came in with massive backers in A16Z, Coinbase and Amoca, MultiCoin, and then actually Christie's led their own funding round. And then they've had some massive funding rounds since then with $120 million raised at a valuation of $3 billion. So the latest raise that occurred on the 4th of April, 2023 indicates that Layer Zero is a $3 billion protocol. And look, when the token gets listed on the market, it's likely that it's worth even more than that in terms of the actual token price itself, because the raising value and the total market capitalization, FDV, is a very different thing. For example, Arbitrum launched at like, what, 12 bill FDV, and they raised nowhere near that. Obviously, investors need to make a return on investment, right? But what we do know is that for investors to get a return on investment, airdrops are one of the vehicles, so basically by launching a token, that the projects can essentially pay back its investors and pay back its stakeholders. So incentivizing these investors with the token is one of the major ways that attracted this much liquidity. And there's also a way that they can bootstrap liquidity on the ecosystem to ensure the success of the Layer Zero protocol long term. And when you have an airdrop, obviously that means, especially with a big valuation, that there's going to be a slice of the pie given out to the community. And the bigger the raise, the more the slice of the pie is going to be. And with Layer Zero being such a big protocol from a valuation perspective, it's no doubt that it could be when the airdrop comes, one of the biggest airdrops in crypto history, one of the biggest airdrops that we've ever seen. And this is one I've been preparing for for quite some time. You can see here I did my first full deep dive on Layer Zero back in October 2022, over one year ago now. If you've been farming this airdrop for over a year, you're in an amazing, amazing position. I actually mentioned it even before this in the context of another thread, which amalgamated a bunch of other airdrops as well. And I also did a follow up earlier in the year as a last warning, a last reminder. And I also did videos on it on crypto banter at the time that you should highly consider going for the Layer Zero airdrop if you haven't already for the people that weren't already farming the airdrop. So I hope I've prepared you guys for what could be a potential airdrop. But if you haven't been farming the airdrop and if you've done nothing on Layer Zero, don't worry. Towards the end of this video, I'm going to show you a way that you can still make money in the ecosystem because there's going to be a massive amount of liquidity coming into the ecosystem. Once the airdrop takes place, like Arbitrum, there were tons of opportunities on the protocol side. And there's actually a couple trades right now, which I believe are decent Layer Zero proxy trades, which I want to get into. But for the ones that are potentially looking at an airdrop, I'm sure you want to know when airdrop, well, we got some really interesting revelations over the last few days. It's funny, if you look at the poly market odds for Layer Zero airdrop, if you go into the week, they spiked to an 84 % probability based on the market's interpretation of the Layer Zero airdrop, due to the fact that the SSL certificate was officially lodged. And we can see that the lodging issuers do show that a Layer Zero Foundation common name was issued. Now, what an SSL is, is it's a digital certificate that authenticates a website's identity and enables an encrypted connection. Companies and organizations need to add SSL certificates to their websites to secure online transactions and keep customer information private and secure. We saw an SSL certificate application for Arbitrum the week before their airdrop announcement. We also saw the day before the airdrop announcement Arbitrum pump in terms of its poly market odds, enabling people to speculate on it beforehand. So this obviously has led a lot of people to believe that a Layer Zero airdrop could be coming sooner rather than later. But it's been a bit of a saga on the day since we saw that odds because we've seen people out of the Layer Zero camp say that nobody actually manually triggered the lodgement of that certificate and that they thought it was an automated event, which is quite interesting. But then again, Arbitrum did deny a lot of these things until they went live. So they may be stalling, they may have known about it. We don't have full transparency over what the team is doing here and what the team is up to. All we know is that things are looking like there's going to be an airdrop and Q4 has been touted for quite some time in terms of the period where we'd get an airdrop. And obviously we're in November heading into December. It's really, really close to a potential airdrop if not the snapshot's probably been taken already, right? And if they do choose to delay then 2024 Q1 could be a logical period for them to launch an airdrop. So CC2 summarised the current airdrop situation for Layer Zero. He anticipates that this week either they'll push a significant announcement that the snapshot occurred. This would indicate that an airdrop is coming soon. He said that the smartest minds that he talked to said waiting until at least Wednesday. So it's currently Tuesday, maybe Wednesday in some countries depending on where you're watching it from. So that still hasn't happened yet. He also said the other outcome could potentially be them not announcing anything beyond the usual chain and partnership integration. And potentially the airdrop happens either later in Q4, so December, or maybe in the new year. If it is in the new year, it's unlikely they do it over the holiday period. It's more likely that they do it in late January or early February in my opinion. But if we look at the Polymarket odds right now, the market is saying that it's roughly a 50 -50 split versus whether or not there will be an airdrop. So that is fluctuating and it's interesting because there's a vehicle for speculation there if you do want to speculate on a potential airdrop. It could be within the next 10 days, possibly, if the SSL certificate is an indicator like it was for Arbitrum. But I still think if you are in line for a Layer Zero airdrop, I wouldn't get your hopes up too much. If you did follow my airdrop guides, though I think you're in an amazing position to get an airdrop, if you didn't follow those guides, I think there's maybe a possibility the snapshot isn't taken. But for me, it's not a high -risk roleplay anymore. You're better off because these guys have had years, your competition essentially, have had years or over a year to build up trading volume across Stargate, across bridging volume, frequency, all of that stuff that's obviously going to play into who gets a big airdrop. If you're starting today, you're not going to have time unless you're a whale to build up that volume and you're definitely not going to hit the frequency or the time components or the governance on the STG side, those components that could provide a little bit of nuance to benefit our loyal users of the laser ecosystem because they're clearly going to want to reward those guys too and try and knock out cyber wallets. So I think if you've missed it and you haven't been airdrop farming, I would turn my attention to some of the next biggest airdrops, a few that I could think of off the top of my head. You've got Starknet, you've got Linear, these kind of airdrops that I've done videos on. If you search up airdrops, Miles Deutch, or Crypto Banta, I'm sure lots of videos come up from my show because I've done guides in the past. But yeah, I would definitely turn my attention to focusing on those if you missed the Layer Zero airdrop. If you did miss it though, now let's talk about the ecosystem because here are where some interesting trades start to present themselves. So one, I think that the Layer Zero airdrop could act as stimulus for the overall ecosystem. You can see in front of you some of the key ecosystem dapps. But two, I think in the lead up to the airdrop, if people want to speculate on the Layer Zero token before the token is officially launched, then you're going to have to use ecosystem dapps as a proxy bet. So there's kind of two plays here. There's kind of a buy the rumor or airdrop trade heading into the airdrop. And then there is also like a concrete play on additional liquidity entering the ecosystem. Or maybe the Layer Zero token launches a little bit overvalued, right? And people try and play the proxies, the catch up plays based on relative valuations, because we don't quite know where Layer Zero is going to land in terms of its valuation, although I expect it to be probably a top 20, if not a top 10 protocol, given the fact it has a three bill valuation on the cap table, which is one of the biggest raises in crypto history in terms of value, alongside things like Starknet and Scroll, these other L2 type products, which are charging massive, massive, massive valuations. So the ecosystem is an interesting trade. Within the ecosystem, two tokens really stand out Stargate being one of them being pretty much your primary Layer Zero powered application and Radiance as well, which is an application that gives you exposure to not only the Layer Zero ecosystem as they use Layer Zero to power their multi chain borrowing and lending strategies, but also the Arbitrum ecosystem, which currently has its incentive grants taking place at the moment, as well as an underlying EIP narrative and Arbitrum staking, which just got proposed to. So I'm pretty bullish on the Arbitrum ecosystem at the moment, I'm bullish on Layer Zero. So radiant becomes a decent proxy bet. So I have been adding radiant at some of these key levels, I've made two buys into radiant around the mid range here at the 23 cent zone, bought a little bit more on the breakout here at 24. My next add up add zone will be after any major pullbacks, we are heading into a bit of resistance. But if we do get a market pullback, and I think Sheldon talked about that on his show, Radiance definitely one that that's on my watch list. And I highly recommend if you haven't already, you make a trading view watch list, a buy list, a trading list, whatever to track the tokens that you're currently interested in. Because radiant is definitely online. And it's definitely one that I'm watching on that I talked about in yesterday's show and my weekly watchlist on Twitter as well that I post every Monday. So radiance one Stargate is actually the other one, which hasn't actually moved up as much as Radiance. So you can see from the bottom Stargates moved up 44%. Actually, they're pretty similar. And over the last few days, Radiance moved up 44 % as well. They've both moved up Stargate probably hasn't had that massive thrust based on prior price action due to the fact that there is some impending supply overhang due to FTX. Radiant for that reason becomes my preferred play of the two. But if you zoom out onto the weekly, you can see Stargate, although it has moved, I mean, still significantly down from highs and you can put radiant in the same category as well. Although it has made a significant push up from the bottom and is now coming into this major mid range territory here, if you want to draw out like major timeframes on the weekly where you'd be drawing out your horizontal support around this level at the 32 cent zone. So making its way into that area, that is the area that I'll target any sort of pullbacks back down towards range low, I think would be a great zone to load up for a potential targeting of this upper bound at the 32 cent zone, which I think eventually we will get to in my opinion. So these two become decent proxy bets on layer zero if you haven't got any exposure to the ecosystem, either through the applications or through the airdrop. One thing I'm doing for a token like radiant specifically, because it's on the Arbitrum chain, I've been using Kyber AI to actually track the momentum for the token based on AI data. So if you go into Kyber AI, there's a link in the description below to sign up for beta access, and you switch to the Arbitrum network, you click on radiant capital, you can actually see the momentum for radiant. So when this ticks into bearish territory, that's when I'm going to start. So you see here when the Kyber score goes super bearish at 26 cents, it ticked upwards and then it pumps to 28 cents. When we have reversals like this, and we get sub 20 on the Kyber score, which is a metric that takes into account a bunch of on chain analysis, if that lines up with a broader market pullback, that is one of the confluence indicators that I will use to buy more radiant. So I'm monitoring Kyber AI all the time, you can create watch lists on Kyber AI, put all of the tokens that you're trading in there, and you can use that to solidify your trading strategy. So that's a good tip. It gives you all sorts of on chain analysis and data, which is of course amalgamated into that Kyber score, which is based on machine learning. But you've also got also a bunch of in depth order flow type statistics like trading volume, net flow to whale wallets, etc. Centralised exchanges, number of transfers, all that really in depth data that's going to help the on chain sleuths on chain traders out there. So that's something I'm using with a link in the description below to access it if you haven't already. I want to give you an update on my radiant bots as well. I've been doing a lot of trading bots recently, you've probably seen some of my trading bot videos. I want to give you a quick update on my radiant grid bot. So my futures DCA martingale strategy is currently up 75%. So doing really, really well up a p &l of $200. It's a small test position for me, but nonetheless, pretty impressive p &l, which I actually put my full size into this. But I've just been testing out bots radiant worked really well because it was within a range. And it got some nice averages while it was within this range, you see this range here. And then when it broke out, a lot of those cells got to execute. And that's why the p &l really pumped on that one. And then you can also see I've got another grid strategy, a futures grid strategy, which isn't a martingale strategy, which basically alters the buy size depending on Yeah, if you go down, it kind of doubles up martingale doubles every time and takes profit on the next grid. The futures grid is more linear, so it doesn't double, but this one's up $85. And 34%, one of my highest performing bots as well. So for me, a great way to get exposure to these trades isn't just through trading them on leverage, it's actually through setting up bots and setting up the parameters to trade buy and sell radiant within a certain range, when you get a breakout, you can actually execute on a lot of these orders. So if you're bullish on a token, setting up a long DCA gridbot is not a bad idea. If you know what you're doing, I have a tutorial, which I'll link in the description to okxgridbots if you want to learn more about it, and you're confused what the hell I'm talking about. I've done an entire video on this that will be in the description below that you can check out. I want to give a quick shout out to one of our official show partners, which is SmartX. If you are interested in earning passive income on any of the tokens listed on the AMM across Arbitrum, BNB, base and polygon, you can do so in the description below and get access to APRs of up to 60 % on the SmartX platform. And SmartX is really cool because they've engineered a way to drastically reduce the negative effects of impermanent loss. If you go into their on -chain compare function, you can actually see the performance of SmartX pools versus similar pools on other AMMs like Uniswap v3. And you can see, for example, the Arbitrum USDC pool is performing a lot better in terms of impermanent loss. Actually, it's in impermanent gain versus the other pools. And this is because of the algorithm that SmartX has. So in the past, putting a stablecoin alongside a token that you like hasn't been the best because if the token pumps, it really limits your upside. And it can also really screw you on the downside if the token moves significantly in price against the other asset. That's what impermanent loss is. With an application like SmartX, you can often get much better results where you can maintain the efficiency of the token that you're in, the efficiency of the LP overall, because you'll be pairing it with another token, of course. There's many examples of this, the Matic USDC pools the same, much better performance overall, net performance 7 .8 % versus these other pools which are much lower. You can see this as well in USDT, BNB. So all this is transparent. You can check out the on -chain compare function on their website. And yeah, link in the description below if you want to deposit liquidity or swap or even stake some of your assets. So link in the description below to SmartX and also to the OKX video and also to Kyber AI if you want to check out some of the AI -powered data that I've been referring to in the show. Hope you enjoyed today's show on Layer Zero. Hopefully it gives you a bit of info into how I'm trading it. Pretty bullish on Stargate and Radiant, especially if we get a pullback. Those will be tokens that I look at adding to. I am pretty excited for the Layer Zero airdrop as someone that's been involved in it for over a year. It's going to be amazing. I can't wait for the day. We may need to wait a little bit longer now, but I mean, we may even be surprised towards the back end of this week. So keep your eye out for that. And yeah, it's a super exciting time. We can actually see Layer Zero's trading already on the hyper liquid market. So it's an IOU contract which enables you to buy it. So if you really want to buy it now, you can actually buy Layer Zero, but you won't actually own the token. It's an IOU. And often these are really overpriced. It ended up coming down significantly in price when the token actually launches. So I will see you in the next show. Have a lovely rest of your day. Peace out.

Again that's crypto news alerts .net. Welcome everyone. This is podcast episode number 1454. I'm your host JV and today is November 7th, 2023. We have lots to cover. Let's kick it off with our market watch as we do each and every day. As you can see on your screen, we got Bitcoin back in the green, looking to retest 36 ,000 and creeping towards that target while Ethereum, BNB and XRP are currently pulling back and in the red. And checking out coinmarketcap .com, the current crypto market cap is on the climb as well at 1 .34 trillion dollars with roughly 45 and a half billion in volume in the past 24 hours. The Bitcoin dominance a little on the decline here today at 51 .8 % and the Ether dominance has been dropping as well, currently at 17 % even. I'd love for you to tell me in that chat, how high do you feel this Bitcoin dominance is likely to climb for this cycle peak? Let me know. And checking out the top 100 crypto gainers of the past 24 hours, we got the trust wallet token leading the pack up 9 % trading at $1 .79, followed by Solana up 9 % trading at 44 bucks, followed by Kronos up almost 8 % trading just under 8 cents and checking out crypto bubbles so we can see the top 100 gainers of the past week. Kind of a lot in the red right now, but we do have a handful in the green as well. BNTWT up 9 % and PLS up 6 .4 % and TON up 6 .7 % with the biggest loser being WeMixed down almost 19 % and checking out one of my favorite indicators, the crypto greed and fear index shows we're currently rated a 68 in greed yesterday was a 74 last week a 66 and last month a 50 dead in the middle, which is neutral. So there you have it, fam. How many of you are currently bullish on that king crypto? Please let me know in that live chat. So let's just kick it off into high gear and let's break down today's Bitcoin technical analysis. Check out the charts where the Bitcoin price action is likely to go next. So here we go. Check it out. You're looking at the Bitcoin one hour candle chart here. Bitcoin fell towards 34 .5 November 7th as analysts attention turned to mushrooming the open interest data from coin Telegraph and trading view showed Bitcoin struggling to reclaim 35 ,000 to support Bitcoin lacked clear direction into the Wall Street open, but market participants predicted the volatility would soon return. The reason they said was a sharp increase in open interest on derivative markets, quitting them here, almost 10 ,000 BTC worth 350 million in open interest added today, according to financial commentator Ted talks macro now coin Telegraph open interest reaching elevated levels has coincided with bouts of volatility in the recent months. Current levels total nearly 15 and a half billion at this time. And James van Stratton research and data analysts at crypto insights crypto slate described the fluctuations as noticeable, quitting him here. The CME exchange preferred by institutional investors has achieved a new record in open interest with 105 ,000 BTC contracts open valid at $3 .68 billion. Finance has edged past this figure would open interest of approximately 113 ,500 BTC. This trend points to increasing involvement in Bitcoin futures, hinting at either a positive shift in the market mood or a move towards protective strategies by the investors. Now the sense of uncertainty over how the open interest phenomenon would play out was shared by J .A. Martin, a contributor of on -chain analytics platform crypto quant as he shares here on X Bitcoin on the low timeframe. The open interest on Bitcoin futures is ramping up. Certain apes are taken significant positions, but it is unclear to me whether they're going to short or too long. Now in his analysis, he suggests the open interest was now in a territory that had previously seen 20 % of the Bitcoin price drawdowns, quitting him here historically, whenever this metric surpassed 12 .2 billion, it resulted in a minimum 20 % decline of the Bitcoin price. That interest open deserved significant attention. Now continuing this current pump, we have 36 ,000, which I think we're likely to retest here shortly as we started pumping right before I went live. According to school analytics, Bitcoin's looking like a short covering bounce here. Some open interest is coming off the lows here too. Word up and good to note. And going back here, let's see what other analysts we can quote here. We also have material indicators who shared the following. Calling a local top at 36 ,000 doesn't mean 36 ,000 is off the table this year. But the metrics I'm looking at indicate that at the very least it is off the table for this week. He says that call also doesn't mean the price will free fall back to the prior 25, 28, five range. But if a bull breakout isn't validated for this month, that range low is critical. So there you have it. I disagree with this analyst. Clearly, we're pumping right now and I feel we're likely to retest 36 ,000 potentially here today. We shall soon see. And quoting Max Keiser, the high priest of Bitcoin, he says, Bitcoin separates money and all that gold from the state, defund monarchy, defund the central banks. Bitcoin fixes this and he's responding to this news here. The king delivers the king's speech from the throne in the House of Lords chamber. The speech is written by the government and sets out the legislative agenda for the new session. Max Keiser also wrote here in regards to this tweet, the Fed doesn't want to talk about rate cuts, but Wall Street is sniffing out an increasing likelihood of just that. Six months ago, if the economy had fallen off the cliff, the Fed's hands were tied and it couldn't cut rates. Well, now it can. And Max Keiser responded, the rate cuts will boost Bitcoin to my 220 ,000 dollar target for sure. We'll send it and let's freaking go. Let's dive into our next story of the day and discuss the latest with Bitcoin ordinals, which is their NFTs. How many of you have actually experimented or used Bitcoin ordinals before? Please do let me know. Ordinals is a BRC20 token collection minted on the Bitcoin blockchain, which surged 80 or sorry, 40 percent in the past 24 hours to $10 .19 after listing on the crypto exchange Binance. And according to Binance's November 7th announcement, traders can now trade ordinals against Tether. Now, Bitcoin and the Turkish lira as well, Binance claims that it did not charge developers any listing fees for the already token and that withdrawals will now open November 8th as part of the initial incentives. The first 1000 users who deposit at least 72 already to the exchange receive 50 USDT trading rebate voucher, quoting them here already is a relatively new token that poses a higher than normal risk and as such will likely be subject to high price volatility. Word up. Now, the Bitcoin ordinals is a numbering system that assigns a unique number to each individual Satoshi or one 100 million of a Bitcoin, enabling tracking and transfer and combined with the inscription process, which adds an additional layer of data to each Satoshi. This allows users to make unique digital assets on the digital Bitcoin blockchain. The current token listed on Binance already is not associated with developers of Bitcoin ordinals. Good to note. Invented by Web3 developer Rod or more in January, BRC20 tokens have surged in popularity of one of the largest technological advancements in a 15 year old block chain. Now, self custody wallet providers such as BitKeep now BitGet Wallet have enabled BRC20 token deposits as well as withdrawals since June. The total market cap of BRC20 tokens currently stands at one point three four billion dollars. So there you have it. Hi, fam. Let's dive into our next story of the day and discuss the latest with Custodia Bank now offering Bitcoin custodial services. This is actually pretty cool. And this is Caitlin Long's company. By the way, she's also very bullish on BTC Custodia Bank, a crypto friendly bank founded by Bitcoin advocate Caitlin Long launched its BT custody platform. The firm shared November 7th to announce the launch of Custodia Bank's Bitcoin custody service targeting businesses like fiduciaries, investment advisors, fund managers and corporate treasurers. The launch comes soon after Custodia Bank earned approval from the Wyoming Division of Banking to go live with the service. The announcement notes and announcing the news, Custodia Bank emphasized that the platform is a non lending bank built by Bitcoiners that offer segregated custody accounts on its custom built Bitcoin custody platform. The statement said Custodia Bank offers integrated Bitcoin custody and U .S. dollar services all on one platform designed to simplify the user operations while reducing risk. Here's what they shared. Since we built our Bitcoin custody platform in -house, we are especially grateful to those willing to help us by providing user feedback. Now, Custodia Bank's approval from the Wyoming Division of Banking follows a series of regulatory challenges for the firm. Back in January of this year, the Federal Reserve Board rejected the bank's application to become a member of the Federal Reserve System. Not surprising, right? Saying it was inconsistent with the required factors under the law. The Fed subsequently denied Custodia's request to reconsider its membership application in the system. That's just straight wrong. In a detailed report back in March, the Fed's board said the decision to reject Custodia's app was due to concerns about banks with high concentration of activities related to the crypto industry. Hence why they don't want it. They don't want to support crypto, fam. It's clear. Custodia Bank opened for business in August of this year, though the Fed has blocked much of its proposed business model, which doesn't come as a surprise. Founded in 2020, Custodia is a bank aiming to bridge the gap between digital assets and a digital asset custodian. The firm was formerly known as Avante Financial Group and is based in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Custodia Bank did not immediately respond to requests for comment, but hey, it's definitely a good sign that adoption is coming and banks will be integrating Bitcoin or they're just going to get left behind. So hopefully many major banks follow in the footsteps of Caitlin Long's Custodia Bank. But let me know, fam, how you guys feel. And a reminder, only keep in the bank what you're willing to lose at the end of the day. Because what if there was a bank run? Even with it being FDIC insured, they don't have the money to give it to everybody. Hence what happened earlier in the year with the regional banking crisis and what happened in return to Bitcoin. We started pumping. In fact, Bitcoin's up well over 100 percent since the start of the year. And I feel we're just getting started. All right, fam. Now let's dive into our next story of the day and discuss the latest with the ETF news coming out of Hong Kong, which I know is not in the mainland of China, but still considered a part of China. And I think we're going to have ETF adoption not just in the United States, but clearly in Asia as well as in the Middle East, because in all markets they're seeking it and competition definitely a good thing, especially when it comes to these ETFs. So let's break down this latest report. Hong Kong is reportedly weighing the possibility of allowing the spot crypto ETF in a Bloomberg report. The Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission CEO, Julia Leong, outlines what it would take for the spot crypto ETFs to be authorized in the city -state, quoting her here. We welcome proposals using innovative tech that boost efficiency and customer experience. We're happy to try it as long as new risks are addressed. Our approach is consistent regardless of the asset. So according to Bloomberg, Hong Kong currently only allows future based crypto ETFs and among the listed products includes the Samsung Bitcoin futures active as well as the Bitcoin and Ethereum futures ETF issued by CSOP Asset Management. The possibility of a spot crypto ETF getting approved in Hong Kong comes at a time when Hong Kong's ambitions of becoming a leading digital asset hub are in high gear. According to the report earlier in the year, Hong Kong rolled out a virtual asset regulatory framework and on the crypto regulatory framework. Here's what she shared, Hong Kong's comprehensive virtual asset regulatory framework follows the principle of same business, same risks, same rules, and aims to provide robust investor protections and manage those key risks. This will enable the industry to develop sustainably and support innovation. Also reports emerged in June that Hong Kong Monetary Authority pushed for banks in the city -state to offer their services to licensed crypto exchanges. It was also reported in February that China was supposedly in support of Hong Kong's plans to allow both institutional and retail investors to trade in crypto assets. So there you have it, fam, mass adoption. Let's freaking go. We all know there's trillions of dollars sitting on the sidelines just awaiting that spot Bitcoin ETF approval. And once we get that green light game on, it will absolutely be a game changer. But anyways, fam, now let's discuss Bitcoin ETFs being we're discussing them already. And it's on everyone's mind right now before we break into the latest prediction from one of the largest asset manager, Fidelity, who currently controls four and a half trillion in assets under management. Let's first discuss these BlackRock ETFs and ETFs from some of the other asset managers. Here we go. The launch of a spot Bitcoin ETF from BlackRock is a highly anticipated event in the crypto industry. I'd say the biggest, most anticipated event next to the Bitcoin halving. You know what I mean? It's expected to provide unprecedented institutional access to the crypto market, representing a significant shift from leading banks and promising substantial capital inflows. These developments will eventually change the industry and kickstart the new market cycle. What we're seeing in the market at the current moment is still speculation by the whales, some traditional firms and industry insiders. Now, while the move towards the ETF app approval is a positive development, the price discovery mechanism for Bitcoin is typically driven by derivatives like perpetuals. Let's keep in mind that these are leverage orders that can be liquidated with the right catalyst, whether on the upside or doing a pullback as traders take profit or leverage longs get liquidated. This means that recent price hikes post announcements weren't necessarily caused by a fresh inflow of institutional capital. Though that will happen eventually, they were actually caused by speculation around ETFs driven by people already plugged into the crypto space, including the whales, quoting them here. An ETF approval means that there will be an exponential increase in the amount of capital with access to BTC. That's right. And spot ETF. Unlike futures, there is true price discovery, so there will be no market manipulation. So we should still take this as a sign of institutional interest. It is not unlikely that the capital that kept Bitcoin outperforming traditional assets came from the large institutions or savvy allocators of capital buying ahead of the positive ETF news. CME futures are dominating the crypto future markets right now, suggesting that indeed it might be more traditional institutions that are speculating. These are some of the players that have entered the room in the previous cycles, bull run or not. This kind of activity is par for the course. Now, how capital from Bitcoin ETFs will eventually trickle down? Let's discuss it. We should still pay attention to the possibility of fresh capital coming in. Former BlackRock managing director Stephen Schoenfeld stated at CC Data's Digital Asset Summit in London that an ETF approval can bring 20 billion dollars into Bitcoin. While we all know that's extremely conservative, I'm looking at trillions pouring into the King, just saying. While Alliance Bernstein, the global asset management company, expects the BlackRock ETF approval to drive the crypto asset management way up, all the way up. Now, ultimately, an ETF approval means there will be an exponential increase in the amount of capital with access to BTC. This simple change will be greater than any other development in the market's history. This arrival of capital will come over time as more and more investors and asset managers digest the news, deciding that an allocation is not only responsible, but absolutely necessary preach. Likewise, the adoption of this financial product will take years as institutions such as broker dealers, banks and RIA's undergo due diligence and other processes before they can even offer Bitcoin ETFs. It will also hinge on the arrival of key players such as market makers that are an essential factor in building investor confidence. The role of the market maker is vital to ETFs. They are responsible for creating and redeeming new shares of an ETF, a role designed to keep its price tethered to the price implied by the value of the ETF holdings. Now, finally, we have the question of what a Bitcoin ETF means for the rest of the crypto market beyond Bitcoin itself. Market cycles have historically moved from Bitcoin first to ETH second and then cycled into the smaller altcoins or more exotic projects. This time around, the effects might be less direct, but still obviously noticeable. It is true that a rising tide is not guaranteed in the aftermath of the ETFs going live as the new inflow of capital will not come in the form of direct ownership of BTC. Investors who choose that instrument won't easily be able to change or diversify their exposure to other crypto assets until more ETFs are introduced. Now let's break into our featured story of the day and discuss what will one Bitcoin be worth in the year 2025. While Fidelity's head of macro, Julian Timmer, makes this prediction with an exact number. There's a brand new prediction I've never shared before, so let's break this one down, shall we? A massive shout out to everyone in that live chat just joining us. Fidelity Investments global macro director, Julian Timmer, is updating his outlook on Bitcoin following the latest Bitcoin price surge. He just shared on X to his almost 200 ,000 followers. The Bitcoin can soar beyond $96 ,000 by 2025 due to two main factors. He lays out a scenario for Bitcoin's price performance in the coming years based on retail interest rates, which is the interest rate minus inflation and the Bitcoin adoption rate, which is based on historical Internet adoption. Quoting Timmer here, with Bitcoin moving up once again, will its adoption curve accelerate as it did a few years ago? And how does the macro trend on rates affect it? Here's the data to consider. Here you go. I show a fair value band based on both the slope of the Internet adoption curve and the path for real rates. The bottom boundary assumes that the treasury inflation protected securities real rate of 2 .5 % and the upper boundary assumes negative 2%, which is where we were in 2021. The macro can speed up or slow down the adoption curve, which we have seen play out recently as outlined here in this chart. And looking at the chart, the analyst predicts the Bitcoin price would hit the lower bound of 41 ,000 in 2025 if the TIPS real rate remains as high as the current rate. However, if the real rate declines to what it was in 2021, the price prediction would soar to $96 ,210 in 2025, which is a 175 % increase from the current value. Now let's read his thread, which he shared here on X. I also got to throw out there, he also is predicting a $1 billion Bitcoin price by the year 2038. So by 2025, yeah, a little conservative, but extremely bullish for the long haul on Bitcoin. And I know I've covered that previously here on the show. How many of you have heard the billion dollar price prediction from Jerry and Timmer as I have covered it here? Let me know in that live chat. But anyways, let's just break down what he did share here in the thread so you can see the full discussion. Here we go. Above, I show the fair value, as I mentioned a little earlier. He also mentions the macro can speed up or slow down, which we have seen play out recently as outlined in the chart. He also says, assuming for a moment that Bitcoin will mature into an asset class that plays on the same team as gold and silver, how should we think about where it should sit in a 60 -40 portfolio and what would be a reasonable position size? Great question. Here's what he says. The good news for Bitcoin is it is an annualized volatility down from its 2018 peak, although at 58 % is still head and shoulders above traditional asset classes. That's right. There's no asset in which can compete with the king crypto because Bitcoin is a hedge against inflation as well as a hedge against deflation. It's a store value. It's incorruptible. It's unconfiscatable. And guess what? Gold can't compete either. He also shares here even better is 52 week correlation versus the S &P 500 had declined steadily and is now actually negative. More on the Bitcoin outlook on the next thread. And I highly encourage you to follow Jerry and Timmer. He shares a lot of good threads here, especially regarding Bitcoin and what's happening around, you know, the ETFs, the Bitcoin halving, the macro and all of these TA, which is technical analysis. You know what I mean? Let's see if I can find another good thread for you. He has quite a lot and he's very active as well. Here we go. Here's a good thread right here. He mentions continuing the discussion for my recent thread on Bitcoin. Let's talk about Bitcoin as a store of value. Yes, please. Let's talk about this. Shall we? Gold is delivering solid risk adjusted returns remains hard to beat above. We see that gold has one of the best sharp ratios out there, but Bitcoin is respectable as well in line with other major asset classes. This chart is based on monthly returns because it broadens the universe of alts. In this case, alt such as managed futures and equity long, short hedge funds are the less liquid variety, which broadens the mix while improving their returns. And below is a ranking of correlations to the S &P 500 based on monthly data of September. Bitcoin still has a positive correlation to the equities, but less than many other assets as outlined right here in this chart.

A highlight from Executive Director of The Bush Tennis Center Tim Stallard Talks Bringing The Pros The Texas
"Welcome to the official tennis .com podcast featuring professional coach and community leader Kamau Murray. Welcome to the tennis .com podcast. I'm your host Kamau Murray, and we are here with all things tennis. Mr. Tim Stoller, Tim is the general manager and director of the Bush tennis center down in San Antonio, Texas. And they are hosting a really cool tennis event this weekend. It is the, Tim, go ahead, give us the name. Yes, the San Antonio International Team Tennis Championships, and it's at Freeman Coliseum in San Antonio. However, the Bush tennis center is way out in West Texas, about 300 miles away in Midland, Texas. So that's kind of an interesting dynamic of this event. Yeah, we want to hear a lot about that because I'll be honest with you. You know, I built 27 tennis courts in the city and the Bush tennis center has the exact same mission as I do, and I'd never heard of it. So we want to dig into that. But first, let's dig into your background. You have put on more than 50, you know, ATP, USDA, Pro Circuit events, assistant coach at University of Texas, spent time on the court with Andy Roddick. Tell me about your pedigree, where you come from, how you got in the game, and how you were able to travel through so many different levers of the sport. Well, I actually, it started in Rockford, Illinois, way up north, and started playing tennis and just, it was one of those things after my parents got divorced a couple of times. I love baseball, but trying out for baseball teams was more problematic than just entering tennis tournaments. So I kind of fell into tennis through that and loved the sport. And you know, like you said, went on to coach at University of Texas and started, you know, just had some great players. And that's really how I got into starting to run events is I was trying to get wildcards and help out players that I was coaching. And way back in the day, I had two really great players in Texas. One was Julie Scott, who is an All -American at Stanford. And, you know, I couldn't get wildcards. And the other one was Elizabeth Schmidt, who played at UCLA and went on, now she's a head coach at Rice. And very deserving kids. And the USDA said, you know, if you start running tournaments, you get the wildcards. So at one point, I had 13 challengers across the U .S. And some of those challengers, like Champaign -Urbana, are still moving along. So it was an interesting process. So we've held calendars the last two years. And it is a tough business model. To have 13 of them, you know, they struggle to make money. They break even at best. To have 13 of them, you must have had a model that worked because no one would ask for it 13 times if you don't. So tell us about your experience with challengers because we see challengers in the U .S., you know, come on and off the calendar, right? And it hurts our U .S. players from, like you said, creating that vertical for where they're in, you know, the collegiate pathway, they want to try to hand it to Pro Tour, they can't get a wildcard, not enough events to spread the wildcards out. How did you make the challenger model work? Yeah, you know, I was able to get national sponsors. I mean, it covered everything. So I had great sponsors, AOL, Porsche Cars North America, Bear Stearns, HealthSouth. So I just went out. I had a great mentor, a big advertising company, GSD &M. The founders of that really kind of showed me how to put media value behind packages. And I found a kind of a good formula. So you know, I would have literally just, you know, Porsche would say, we need these markets and I would jump on a plane and go to Miami and find facilities. But it was a nice problem because I had all the financials together. You look at the challenger that was in Dallas for years, that was over 20 years that they had it at TbarM. So lots of great challenges throughout the years. Now when you would sell those packages, would the sponsor take all 13? Or like the major sponsors take all 13, then you add on locals? Or was it, you know, and the people would pick off whichever ones they wanted in the markets? Yeah, for the most part, you know, we'd have our major sponsors would take all the markets and then we'd sell kind of patron, local, because you always want the local community involved. So we'd have local patron packages. And we really did our best to make it a fun event, you know, pro -ams and music and access to the players. And, you know, for me, a big part of it was telling the story of the challengers. I mean, I love challengers because you have the veterans that are hanging on that come to get the points. You got the top juniors in the world and they clash at the challenger level. And you know, I'll never forget, I was in a drive -through at McDonals in Austin, Texas, and I got a call from Andre Agassi's brother asking for a wild card into Burbank. And at that time, I'd already, I'd committed, I had a player, Brandon Coop and Robert Abendroth, I committed my two wild cards, so I couldn't give him a wild card, but I was hoping the USTA would. And you know the story, I mean, he got a wild card, he played against Sarga Sargisian in the finals. They called it the Battle of Armenia. And it was a great tournament and it was great to see him come back a year later. He was already back to number four in the world. So it was really just an inspiration to see Andre. Yeah, so, you know, I think that one of the things we us to underestimate is like really the job of these challengers, right, especially in the US soil, is to help promote the next generation of player, right? So I always like to hear a famous story. So our challengers, our wild cards went to Ben Shelton last summer. That's awesome, man. I always hit the semis, obviously got to perform, got a wild card into, got to upgrade a wild card, got originally got a wild card in the Qualities of Cincy because he was in Chicago so long, upgraded to the main draw. And this year, Alex Mickelson wins our event, goes on and plays Newport, right, gets the final to Newport, loses to Manarino, I think. So tell me about another famous wild card story where you see, you gave a wild card to someone that has some potential. And then other than the story you told us where you're like, you know, we had a hand in that person's career. Well, a couple of them, one in Rockford, Illinois, back to Rockford, Illinois, I had a challenger there in February following the Midland, Michigan challenger that's still going. And I got a call from one of my idols, Nick Boletary, and said, I've got this girl, she's number one in the world. And she's not going to make the cut for the challenger. And we think she has a lot of potential. It was Anna Kournikova. So I gave her a wild card and she won it. And you know, I believe, you know, five months later, she was in the quarterfinals of Wimbledon. And what's cool about Anna is Anna came back and we've done a lot of charity events. And following, we did an event in Beaumont with Pete Sampras. And she flew after that over to Horseshoe Bay to do a free clinic with my wife and kids. And it was the first kids courts, it was the Andy Roddick kids courts out at Horseshoe Bay. But she flew over, you know, did it absolutely for free to give back to the kids. And she's amazing. But it's really funny that, you know, that started when she was 13 years old in frigid Rockford, Illinois, in February. So you mentioned your wife and kids, do your daughters play at all? They did. They're older now. They're once graduated from A &M. She's an architect and my other daughter is about to start her master's in communications at A &M. Now, did you tie your hand at coaching them? You know, obviously, I'm trying to coach my kids. And I'm trying not to let what happens on the tennis court blend into the car ride home or blend into the dinner table. But sometimes that's really hard. Did you try your hand at coaching them? And how did that go? Yeah, I did. My wife was really their primary coach. And my wife was a great player, all American at Texas, coached at Texas. She's number one in the Southerns, finalist at the Easter Bowl, just a great player. And we are very different coaching styles. My wife is very, you know, very, very fired up with the girls. I was a lot more laid back. And you know, when I go to their matches, I'd have the newspaper, my Starbucks, and they go, Dad, you're not even watching my match. Of course, I'm watching every point. But when they look at me, I've got my newspaper up and my coffee is kind of downplaying it. But they were great, you know, we're really proud of our daughters. And we officially became grandparents about a little over a year ago. But, you know, tennis was just a great experience for their life. And it, you know, for me, it changed my life. You know, growing up in Rockford, Illinois, my dad was an automaker, tool and die maker, neither one of my parents even know how to keep score in tennis. And like I said, after a couple of divorces, I had a wonderful coach, Pat Wicks, that gave me a lot of free lessons and I just worked my butt off and it opened doors. And, you know, that's what we're really inspired to do with the Bush AIDS Outreach Program is create that opportunity. And I mean, we have 100%, any kid that comes, we provide full scholarships, partial scholarships, we turn down no one. That's our mission. So we're real proud of that and we've helped a lot of kids and we're expanding that throughout the state of Texas and then happy to really help, you know, great foundations like the Ryan Brothers Foundation, John Isner. My wife and I, we went out and helped Sloan. Sloan had over 300 kids bust in from Compton at USC. My wife and I went out and helped with clinics out there to help Sloan, but she does amazing work year -round. So there's a lot of great stories and a lot of great things that, you know, people see these great players on the court, but I'm really inspired for a lot of things they're doing off the court. So tell me about the Bush Tennis Center. I would say I didn't even know it existed. I didn't know that the Bushes were big tennis people. I knew the Koch Brothers were big tennis people down there in Texas, but didn't know the Bush Tennis Center existed. So tell me about how the Bush Tennis Center came along and how you ended up taking the job. Oh, it's, in 2015, I had John Isner, Sam Querrey, and the Bryans, and we did a four -day run where we did Atlanta, Nashville, Midland, and then Camarillo, California to do something for the Bryan Brothers for their foundation. So those four guys, 2015, went through just to do a one -day event and just started talking to the people that founded the Bush Tennis Center and they were having some challenges with the business model, asked me to, hired me as a consultant initially. And I just said, you know, here's all the things that need to be done. And they're like, well, we want to hire you. I'm like, well, I don't live here. I live in Austin. My wife's director of tennis at Horseshoe Bay Resort. My company's in Austin. They're like, well, we don't care if you live here, just come and check into the Double Tree Hilton downtown Midland and come and figure this thing out. And you know, it was really neat because at that point I was working, I was trying to build a similar facility next to Dell Diamond with Reed and Reece Ryan, Nolan Ryan's kids. They owned the Minor League Ballpark there and we were kind of going down that road to maybe buy the ATP event in Memphis, build a facility like this. And you know, we're going down that road, but there was a lot of politics and just dealing with governments and stuff. I go out to West Texas and they're like, you know, here's the keys to the place. How much money do you need? Let's get it going. I mean, it's just an amazing opportunity. And we're on 35 acres. We've already on the far west side, we just opened a $4 million park designed for special needs children. So we've got zip lines. Everything is set up where kids can play just despite, you know, physical challenges. They can play side by side with all kids. We have a $4 million park. We just broke ground on a new 90 ,000 square foot athletic center, which will have five indoor basketball courts, 15 volleyball courts, a 75 yard turf indoor field. And then Lance Hooton, who I actually met through Andy Roddick, who's traveled with Andy. It's going to be a sports performance training center. And Lance Hooton's coming in and using his expertise to develop that as well. So, you know, it's a big campus and it's all set up as a nonprofit. It's a legacy for the Bush presidents. And you know, I feel like to some degree I get to be Santa Claus because I get to really help a lot of kids. And that's super important to me. And we've got a staff that is just amazing, that just cares so much about helping kids and really developing a great event, a great product. Now you're also building indoor tennis courts. And what people don't know is like in these southern markets, right, places where you just say California, Texas, Atlanta, Florida, even, he's like, why do you need indoor courts in those markets? Sometimes it is so hot, right, that you just need the, you need the roof for the shade, right? Or sometimes like in Florida, it'll rain all day, right? And you need the roof for the rain. So tell us why you would need indoor courts in West Texas. Well, a lot of times it's just too windy. I mean, we're just out in the middle of nowhere. It's flat as can be. And, you know, as they say, there's not a lot out there, but there's a lot under there. I mean, we're on the biggest reserve of oil on planet Earth, the Permian Basin and the Delaware Basin, you know, come right out of right out of Midland, West Texas. And but it's flat, high winds. So we lose a lot of days where, you know, the wind gets up above 25 miles an hour. It's not playable. Dust is blowing. And then, you know, we have one hundred and one hundred and ten hundred and fifteen degree days in the summer, and then it drops to twenty five degrees. That's just all over the map. So indoor courts will definitely help us. We're looking at doing eight indoor hard and four indoor clay, and there's no way to do outdoor clay. It would just blow away. So it would be so dry and you'd be you know, every year we bring in twelve tons of clay to sort of re -top off our red hard shoe courts. I mean, I would only imagine how much money you spend on. Oh, yeah. It wouldn't last.
SBF TRIAL Podcast 11/7: What's Next for Sam Bankman-Fried's Legal Case
"Welcome to the SBF trial, a Coindesk podcast network newsletter bringing you daily insights from inside the courtroom where Sam Bankman -Fried will try to stay out of prison. Follow the Coindesk podcast network to get the audio each morning with content from the Coindesk regulation team and voiced by Wondercraft AI. The story of United States v. Sam Bankman -Fried isn't quite over yet. Now that he's been found guilty on seven different charges, a few things are going to happen. One is, of course, the U .S. probation and pretrial services system will get to work on drafting a memo for a recommended sentence. The Department of Justice and the defense team will likely have views on that recommendation. Judge Lewis Kaplan has scheduled a tentative hearing on March 28 to discuss the proposed sentence, with deadlines for the two parties to respond to the memo ahead of that date. There's also Bankman -Fried's second trial, currently scheduled for March 11. The judge set a February 1 deadline for the DOJ to update him on whether or not it intends to proceed with this second trial, which is also dependent on the U .S. winning permission from the Bahamas government. As a reminder, Bankman -Fried faces additional charges of fraud on FTX customers tied to derivatives, though it's worth noting that last week's conviction did include a count of conspiracy to commit commodities fraud, securities fraud against FTX investors, conspiracy to commit bank fraud, conspiracy to operate an unlicensed money transmitter business, and conspiracy to violate the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. These charges were not included in Bankman -Fried's original indictment, meaning they did not appear in the DOJ's request to the Bahamas for his extradition. The Bahamas Supreme Court ordered that the government cannot retroactively grant permission for a trial on these charges until after a hearing has been completed. I haven't yet seen any confirmation that one has been scheduled. There's also post -trial motions. Defense Attorney Mark Cohen and his team may file for a new trial or for the judge to acquit despite the jury verdict. These are pro forma, but Cohen suggested he will file those and has a November 20th deadline to do so. The DOJ must respond by December 18th.
"'The Simpsons' takes on NFTs" Nov 06, 2023
"It's 8am eastern November the 6th and this is your daily crypto report. Bitcoin is up slightly at $35 ,218, ETH is down slightly at $1 ,898, and Ripple's XRP has overtaken Binance Coin by market cap and is up slightly at $0 .70. While XRP has saw a big spike in the past 24 hours, the price increase appears to be driven by spot trading with no immediate catalysts identified that may be related to two positive developments for Ripple. Last week, the firm received approvals to operate in Georgia and Dubai, allowing licensed firms in Dubai's financial center to offer XRP to clients. Additionally, Ripple is collaborating with the National Bank of Georgia on a digital currency project. While the Bank of England and the UK's FCA are seeking feedback on their proposals for regulating stablecoins, they're concerned about the potential risks for financial stability posed by payment systems using stablecoins if widely adopted for retail payments in the UK. They aim to regulate operators of systemic payment systems using stablecoin issuers and wallet providers to support safe innovation while ensuring public confidence in digital money and payments. Feedback from the public and industry is welcomed until February 6th of 2024. The latest episode of The Simpsons called Wild Bart's Can't Be Token features blockchain and NFTs. In the episode, Bart gets accidentally turned into an NFT and Marge goes on a blockchain adventure to rescue him. The episode references NFTs and artists like the Bored API Club and Beeple. It also pokes fun at the speculative nature of NFTs. The show previously explained blockchain and crypto in a 2020 episode called Frink Coin. Crypto entrepreneur Roger Ver has sued Matrixport subsidiary Smart Vega Holding Limited for $8 million over frozen funds. Ver alleges that Matrixport's founder froze his funds due to a dispute related to losses at Coinflex. Matrixport claims that the freeze resulted from an investigation into Ver's margin trading irregularities on Bit .com. And finally, the number of Bitcoin addresses holding at least $1 ,000 worth of Bitcoin has reached a record high of $8 million. Bitcoin's recent price increase and optimism surrounding the potential approval of spot Bitcoin ETFs by the US SEC have contributed to this surge in adoption. Well, that's all for us today.

A highlight from FTX Saga Finally Over! SBF Found Guilty | Bitcoin + Macro Economy Update
"All right, let's dive into a little bit of what's happening in the crypto markets today. Obviously, SPF in the news. We'll talk about how maybe that will affect or could affect some things within the crypto market itself. It's going to be a good one. My name is Paul Baron. We'll come back into Tech Path before we get started thanking our sponsor, and that is iTrust Capital. We'll get into your own self -directed crypto IRA. This is one of the places you can do it. And they've got a lot happening over there. You can get into everything from Bitcoin to Ethereum, along with a ton of altcoins. Or you can go into gold and silver. Now 200 ,000 accounts, $7 billion in transactions. This is a great place to start. If you guys want to use our link down below, you'll get a $100 funding reward. Just use that and you can kind of get started over there. Let's lead off here. I want to kind of jump to a story here. On the jobs report, which just came out, soft jobs report fails to dampen the Bitcoin enthusiasm. And of course, Bitcoin's still holding its own. Many people looked at this and said, well, maybe there's going to be some market adjustments down. And really, if you look at some of the details within this, Bitcoin obviously a little bit flat right now, but the key here is 150 ,000 non -farm jobs in October, less than the fact set that everybody was forecasting, which was 180. So unemployment rose to 3 .9, which is up slightly. Now, remember Chair Powell has been holding rates as they are for the Fed front rate. A lot of this has been because of this kind of precarious situation around data that's been coming in. And I think to a certain extent, Powell, and I talked about this earlier in the week, a little confused on why are we not seeing a reaction from the market? Well, maybe this is the beginning. So obviously higher unemployment, lower jobs definitely could show cooling. All right, some other things in the article here, Powell said that while the move may slow hiring and economic growth, the central bank needs to remain focused on keeping inflation in check. It sounds to me like he's looking for a much deeper cut in terms of jobs. Open interest for Bitcoin call options, 40, 45 and 50K are now growing. So a lot of people looking at this as potentially a push up, we'll see. Let me know down in the comments below if you guys think Bitcoin is going to start to move on an uptrend here. Even though sentiment has kind of been flat and sideways, much like Bitcoin itself, with these kinds of numbers and continuation of seeing the market kind of react to this, we may see some movement here within the crypto markets. Another thing here, COBICI letter, highest unemployment rate since February 2022. Let me zoom in on that for you guys.
A highlight from The Elon Musk Problem
"I do not respect the SEC. I do not respect them. It seems like a tale as old as time. But how did this feud start, and more importantly, who's winning? Today we're looking at Elon Musk's battle against the SEC and what that means for the future of crypto. It's time to discover crypto. Musk's struggle with the SEC started back in August 2018 when he tweeted about potentially taking Tesla private. A few days later, Musk claimed Saudi Arabia might be interested in funding the privatization plan. At the same time, rapper Azealia Banks accused Musk of being on drugs when he posted that tweet. Rumors circulated that the SEC had subpoenaed Musk and Tesla shares dropped. The SEC probe continued and Tesla shares kept dropping until Musk finally announced that Tesla would remain public. Then in September, the SEC accused Musk of securities fraud for allegedly making statements he knew were false. Only two days later, Musk and the SEC reached a settlement. Musk had to step down as the chairman of Tesla's board for three years and pay a $20 million fine, which would be matched by Tesla, a total of a $40 million penalty. Pocket change to Elon, but the most important of that settlement was that Musk agreed to have all future communications approved by Tesla directors. But it was obvious Musk wasn't exactly happy with the terms of the settlement because less than a month later, he went on to insult the SEC, first in a tweet on October of 2018 and then in an October 60 Minutes interview, during which he said he had no respect for the SEC and also implied that he wasn't taking the order to have his tweets approved seriously. Then in February 2019, Elon Musk tweeted about car production and the SEC pounced again, asking a judge to hold Musk in contempt for violating the settlement. He once again published inaccurate information about Tesla to his over 24 million Twitter followers. Musk's legal team argued that the SEC was overreaching. They claimed Musk's tweets were close to previous projections and that the SEC was expanding the terms of the settlement to any information relating to Tesla. The SEC shot back that Musk wasn't acting in good faith. Finally, they agreed that Musk wouldn't tweet any information about Tesla's finances or production numbers without a lawyer's pre -approval. Seems to me an overreach on the free speech of an American citizen. Throughout the rest of 2019 and 2020, Musk continued to exercise his freedom of speech, almost like he was trying to find the line between securities fraud and his right to express his opinions publicly. A line that our government purposely keeps vague because that makes it easier for them to punish undesirables. When he tweeted that Tesla's stock price was overvalued, Tesla stock fell from $58 down to $45. And then in July of 2020, Musk targeted the SEC again with a tweet that some considered insulting innuendo. I wonder what that stands for. Interestingly, Tesla also dissolved its PR team around this period, which made Musk's statements the sole face of the company. Then in November of 2021, Musk took issue with some rhetoric in Congress surrounding the unrealized gains from the mega rich. Various politicians claimed it's unfair that billionaires can hold huge amounts of stock, take out loans against those holdings, and never pay taxes. So Musk decided to take it upon himself to show that selling stock would only hurt normal American investors. He put up a Twitter poll asking whether he should sell 10 % of his Tesla shares, receiving even more criticism from politicians. The Twitter poll came out in favor of Musk selling and he starts selling off shares. Later, Elon's tax bill came in at $11 billion. You're welcome, US government. But then Tesla's stock plummets from $413 to $330 in four days, which is a lot for traditional markets. The stock rallied but then kept falling through January when it reached around $265.
A highlight from Reformation Day Lecture: The Church's Calling in Evangelism
"Thank you. Thank you. . . to Thee in the evening hour of this day with joy in our hearts that Thou hast given us the ability to assemble here in safety this evening, that we might hear from one of Thy faithful servants about the work of evangelism in our community. Lord, we know that our calling is to preach the word in the church, to preach the word in the mission field, but also to do the work of evangelism in our local communities. We pray, Lord, that we might be instructed this evening hour in doing that work, that we might be a good witness of the joy that is ours in Christ Jesus our Lord, for that salvation full and free given by Thy gracious hand. We pray that Thou wilt be with our speaker this evening, that Thou wilt give him what he stands in need of, that he might speak boldly Thy word, and that we might be instructed by it. Keep sin and evil far from us. Hear our prayer for Jesus' sake. Amen. Our speaker this evening asked me to read 1 Thessalonians. If you'd like to take out your Bibles, you can follow along with that. First Thessalonians, Paul and Silvanus and Timotheus, unto the church of the Thessalonicans, which in God the Father and in the Lord Jesus Christ, grace be unto you and peace from God our Father and our Lord Jesus Christ. We give thanks to God always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers, remembering without ceasing your work of faith and labor of love and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of the God our Father, knowing, brethren, beloved, your election of God. For our Gospel came not unto you in the word only, but also in the power and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance, as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake. And ye became followers of us and of the Lord, having received of the word in much affliction with joy of the Holy Ghost. So that ye were examples to all that believe in Macedonia and Achaia, and from you sounded out the word of the Lord, not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but also in every place, for your faith to God word is spread abroad, so that we need not speak anything. For they themselves show of us what manner of entering in we had unto you, and how ye turned to God from idols, to serve the living and true God, and to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus Christ, which delivered us from the wrath to come. Let's also sing a couple of psalter numbers before we have our speech. Let's turn to 257. 257, bass from Psalm 96. Let's sing all five stanzas. Sing a new psalm to the Lord, sing of the earth to God. In daily praises, bless his name, and tell his grace of God. Among the nations far and wide, his glory celebrate. To all the peoples of the earth, his wondrous works relate. The Lord is great among all gods, and vitals help us rise. The heathen gods our vitals make, thou hold down in the skies. Praise our earnestly for his grace, and justice with a high. With his glory proudly placed, all strength and beauty shine. Let all the peoples of the earth give glory to the Lord. Give him the glory through his day, and strength to him our boy. With all praise come, he to his court, in holy guilty love. Let all the earth give and praise come, blessed from home alone. To all the nations up here, the blessed hide each way. Tell all the world to hold the prince, a human and merciful king. All worlds shall therefore stand on board, as amplified by his might. And justice in truth doth borrow, and will there be no right. Let them ever, let some which sing to them, let them in pray. Let them feel their worth, and all their pain, be part of all the same. For though he comes to judge the earth, then all the world shall see. This and her blessing playfulness gives true hand and guilty. Let's sing one more number. Why don't we stand and let's sing 176, the revived church and missions. 176, let's sing all three verses. Oh God, you are stronger than me, and you are thus in thy grace. God's love to shine upon us, the brightness of my face. Blessed are thy rainbows calling, our earth this to behold. And unto every meal thy saving grace be shown. Oh God, let all men praise thee, let all the nations sing. In every land, let praises and songs of gladness ring. For thou shalt judge the people in truth and righteousness. And through the earth, the nations shall guide the school from class. Oh God, let people praise thee, let all the nations sing. For earth did raise the markets, to us new fruits shall bring. The Lord our God shall bless us, our God shall bless himself. And all the earth shall hear him, to which we long danceth. Amen. Our speaker this evening is Reverend James Lanning. After graduating from the Prosther Reform Theological School, he was ordained in 1997 at our Hope Walker Church. Later, he became pastor of our Hull, Iowa church in 2010. On February 5 of this year, Reverend Lanning was installed as home missionary in the Prosther Reform churches. He's laboring under the calling church of Zion Prosther Reform Church in Jenison. Reverend Lanning. Thank you, Mr. Moverhoff. It's a joy to be able to be here tonight and to be able to speak on the subject of evangelism in the local church. I welcome everybody that's come out tonight and if there is, if it happens to be that there is someone here tonight that is not from our churches, I would like to extend a warm welcome to you and would very much enjoy having an opportunity to be able to talk with you. We know that God is gathering his people from all the different nations of the world and certainly from in our own country. And that there are many of God's people in our own area here and throughout this country and also in other lands. And we rejoice to be able to commune with the people of God wherever they are. This subject is a subject that for me to speak on, I speak on it as one who came from outside. My wife and I both did. And we well remember the excitement that there was when, by the grace of God, we found our churches. And that we found churches that held to and taught the truth that salvation is by grace alone. There was great joy on that day. We literally leaped in one another's arms when we found the Protestant Reformed churches. We lived in Hawaii at that time and it was sometime before we could move to be near one of our churches. And ever since we have, we're very thankful to God to be communing with the saints here. But we're also delighted to get to know God's people outside of our fellowship of churches in our own country and also in other nations. And there are those that have expressed that they wish that there was a sound Reformed church in their area. And it has been a delight for me to be able to talk to some of them. And as time goes on, I am anticipating that the list of those people will continue to grow. I'm looking forward soon to be talking to someone in Fresno, California. I've had conversations with someone a little bit north of Minneapolis. We're contemplating going down to the Dallas, Texas area because we have more than one in that area that would have a desire for there to be a sound church in their area. And recently came in contact with somebody from Hungary that is familiar with our churches, is also familiar with our sister church in Northern Ireland. And very much desires and says he knows of others too that desire there to be a sound Reformed church in their area. And so it's a joy to get to talk with them on the phone and it's my intention soon to be doing more traveling to these contacts and getting to know them and visit with them. And also to be witnessing to the people that they know.

Let's walk you through the numbers here. An update and an up week for most of the major indices here in the U .S. We start with the Dow Jones Industrial Average, higher on the day by about six tenths of a percent, up about 200 points, back above that 34 ,000 level, and adding to what is now gains of about five percent here on the week, best weekly performance for the Dow going back to October of 2022. Meanwhile, the S &P 500 up nine tenths of a percent on the day. That's adding to about what is now going to be a six percent gain on the week. Best week going back to November of 2022. And the Nasdaq composite also getting in on the action up about one point four percent. And again, once again, having its best week since November of 22. But look at this. We've got to talk about the Russell 2000 here, because it was an outperformer all day long, all week long, up about three percent here on the day. It's best day going back to mid June. And on a weekly basis, an eight percent gain appears to be locking in. Best week for the Russell, Carol, going back to February of 2021. What a shift in sentiment and going into a weekend. It's kind of interesting to see all this enthusiasm. You look at the S &P 500, 415 names to the upside, 85 to the downside. Nasdaq 100, you've got 84 names gaining today, Katie, and 17 to the downside. So really a risk on trade once again. Yeah. And again, you can see the same sort of story playing out in the.

Today is podcast episode number fourteen hundred and fifty. Can you believe it? I'm your host, JV, and today is November 3rd. Welcome to Moonvember of twenty twenty three. Let's kick off today's show with our market watch as we do each and every day. We got Bitcoin up about a quarter percent, hovering just under thirty five thousand. We have Ether up point three percent trading at eighteen hundred dollars. Cardano, one of the top gainers, up five and a half percent and also XRP barely in the green. And if we are in doubt, they say you need to zoom out. Let's look at the one month. Wow, that's much more sexier, isn't it? Now we have Bitcoin up twenty seven percent for the month. We got ETH up about 10 percent. Solana is up almost 70 percent. Cardano up twenty three percent. XRP up fourteen percent. BNB up seven percent. Personally, I love it when everything in crypto is a winner. It don't get no sexier than that. And look at Chainlink up fifty two percent for the month. Good lord. And check it out. Coin market cap percent in just under one point three trillion with about forty five billion in volume in the past 24 hours. Bitcoin dominance pulled back a little bit, currently at fifty two point seven percent, and the ether dominance in the 16 percentage range for the first time I have ever seen that I could recall. It's currently at sixteen point nine percent as Bitcoin dominance continues to outpace the rest of the market, especially Ethereum. And checking out the top one hundred crypto gainers of the past twenty four hours for chain up fourteen and a half percent trading at three dollars and twenty cent and Oasis Network up twelve percent trading at six point two cents, followed by the trust wallet token up almost twelve percent trading at a dollar twenty three and checking out crypto bubbles so we can see the top gainers for the past week. Massive shout out to Emilio. I appreciate the super chat. Fam, you're way too kind. Much love, much respect. He just said you are amazing. Nah, I think you're amazing. And I appreciate the orange so we can orange pill more mofos and help change the world. Let's freaking go. Much love, fam. But as we can see on the crypto bubbles on your screen, we got a lot of gainers overall. That means the market cap is pumping and a rising tide rises all ships and checking out the crypto greed and fear index. We're currently rated a sixty five in greed. Yesterday was a seventy two last week, a seventy and last month a forty nine, which is neutral. So there you have it, my fam. What's your thoughts on the current Bitcoin price action? Let me know. Are you pumped up for Moomvember? I sure as hell am. Let's dive into our Bitcoin technical analysis for the day. Check out the charts with a Bitcoin price action is likely to go next. Bitcoin broke below thirty five G's baby after the November 2nd Wall Street open, as analysis warned of overheated derivatives. As you know, derivatives are financial tools of financial destruction. Yeah, for real. Now Bitcoin under does the post fed gains. We're currently tinkering just under that thirty five thousand, which is now back at a resistance. The highs had come on the back of the encouraging language from Jay Powell, the chairman of the Federal Reserve, who in a speech suggested the interest rate hikes might soon end. Now, the Fed opted not to change the rates at the latest meeting on the Federal Open Market Committee, which was November 1st quoting their press release. Recent indicators suggest the economic activity expanded at a strong pace. In the third quarter, job gains have moderated since earlier in the year, but remain strong and the unemployment rate has remained low. Inflation remains elevated and accompanying press release stated. They also shared here that the U .S. banking system is sound and resilient. Sure it is. Tighter financial and credit conditions for households and businesses are likely to weigh on economic activity, hiring and inflation. The extent of these effects remain uncertain. The committee remains highly attentive to inflation risk. We all know they're full of ish, right, to say the least. And quoting crypto analyst, Bitcoin breaks out, reaches a new yearly high, which is currently just shy of 36 G's. Now, not a massive breakout, but as long as we say above 34 .8, which we currently are, the next target is 36 .5 to 37 ,000. And the altcoins will follow after, which is typically what seems to go down. Now, down over a thousand from its highs. Bitcoin was worrying some with derivative markets, particularly in the focus, quoting Charles Edwards at Capriole Investments. All Bitcoin derivatives markets are overheated at present. This captures the perps, futures and options. Stay safe out there. And also, we have reacting popular trader school agreed that arguing it was now the spot market to charge of saving the Bitcoin price strength, as he shares here, something to be aware of when sizing up positions currently, when derivatives get hot. This puts increasing focus on spot market to support the current prices and the trend. That's right. In his own analysis, we also had material indicators concluding caution should be applied to the current Bitcoin trading environment, meaning expect more volatility ahead and uploading the snapshot of liquidity on the Bitcoin order book for the largest global exchange, Binance. It warned support levels were apt to disappear quickly. A form of a rug pull. So you have been warned. Newcomer support gaining liquidity at this time lay at both 34 and 33 .5. So there you have it, fam. Again, how many of you are currently bullish on that? King crypto. And with that being shared, now let's discuss our next story of the day. The latest from Michael Saylor. He was recently interviewed on the news and shared some very positive sentiment in the Bitcoin market. Also, he has been a dollar cost averaging and stacking stats. This week, the Bitcoin price came within a hair of thirty six. I think we hit like thirty five nine ninety during our watch party before abruptly reversing and correcting to thirty four to fifty. But after nearly a 30 percent run over the past month, it is natural for the price to cool off as some traders take profit and market participants evaluate whether or not the catalyst for the rally remain valid. Now, despite the intraday price action, which saw almost five percent drawdown, a number of analysts remain bullish on Bitcoin naturally, and some expect another gamma squeeze. If the Bitcoin price manages to push through the thirty six three hundred level, we're only like four hundred dollars off of that right now. Just FYI, permables like MicroStrategy CEO Michael Saylor appear unbothered by the whipsaw price action. And on November 1st, MicroStrategy announced the October purchase of one hundred and fifty five more Bitcoin for five point three million. As the outlines here in October, MicroStrategy acquired additional one hundred and fifty five BTC for five point three million bucks, now holding one hundred and fifty eight thousand four hundred BTC like, whoa, and what's the most mind boggling? Saylor didn't even get into Bitcoin until twenty twenty. So it goes to show you someone can come here in twenty twenty three and become an even bigger whale than Michael Saylor. In fact, the likes of the Black Rocks of the world put Michael Saylor to shame because we're talking about mega mega mega whales on a massive scale. And when asked about the upcoming Bitcoin having during an interview on Squawk Box, here's what he had to share. Most of the natural sellers of Bitcoin in the market right now are Bitcoin miners and they have to sell to cover their electricity bills and capital costs and retire their debt. That's about a billion dollars per month worth of selling into the market. The protocol forces that to be cut in half as of next April or late April. And he also says, so you're going to see twelve billion bucks of natural selling per year converted to six billion of natural selling a year and at the same time as things like the spot ETFs increase the demand for Bitcoin. So that's why all of us are fairly bullish over the next 12 months. How many of you are bullish? Let me know. Demand is going to increase and supply is going to contract. And this is fairly unprecedented in the history of Wall Street. That's what's up now is a pretty ideal entry point for Bitcoin, according to Saylor. Also, he was recently interviewed and I actually transcribed this video clip when he was speaking on Squawk on the street. And I feel this is very relevant. Here's what Saylor says for the industry to move to the next level. We need to migrate to adult supervision. We're going to need the big banks to become the crypto custodians. We're going to need Wall Street to take a role and we need to rationalize away from the one hundred thousand crypto tokens. You know, the yo yo coins that people are manipulating to Bitcoin. Bitcoin is an asset without an issuer. It is the one universally recognized protocol that is a commodity in the space. And so when banks on Wall Street and responsible custodians are managing Bitcoin and the industry takes its eyes away from all the shiny little tokens that have distracted and demolish shareholder value, I think the industry moves to the next level and we 10x from here. Now, what's another 10x from the current price action we're talking about roughly? What is that? Three hundred and fifty thousand dollars per BTC. Send it and let's frickin go. Also quoting him here, I think the liabilities or the early crypto cowboys, the crypto tokens, which are unregistered securities, the unreliable crypto custodians for the industry to move to the next level. We're going to need to migrate to adult super vision. And I shared with you the rest of that quote. So there you have it. Let me know if you agree or disagree with the one and only giga Chad Michael Saylor. Next story of the day. This is breaking news. SBF has been found guilty in all seven fraudulent charges. Yeah, this is wild. Yeah, here we go. I'm going to read all this to you. Former FTX CEO Sam Bankman Freed was found guilty of all seven charges by a jury in his criminal trial in New York after about four hours of deliberations, meaning it didn't take long. Bankman Freed was found guilty of two counts of wire fraud, two counts of wire fraud conspiracy, one count of securities fraud, one count of commodities fraud conspiracy and one count of money laundering conspiracy. Good Lord. That's a lot of charges and it's just getting started. He'll be back in court in March to continue with some more charges to probably get guilty of. We'll return to the court for sentences by New York District Judge Lewis Kaplan March 28th. So that's the date is right before the having. Government prosecutors will recommend a sentence, but Judge Kaplan will have the final say. Now, Bankman Freed's crimes each carry a maximum sentence of between five and 20 years in prison with the wire fraud, wire fraud conspiracy and money laundering conspiracy carrying a maximum of 20 years sentence in a press conference outside the court, the New York Southern District U .S. Attorney Damian Williams called Bankman Freed's crimes a multibillion dollar scheme designed to make him the king of crypto, right? The Michael Jordan of crypto, the Warren Buffett of crypto and of one the biggest financial frauds in American history, Bankman Freed's attorney Mark Cohen said in a statement, we respect the jury's decision, but we are very disappointed with the result. Naturally, Mr. Bankman Freed maintains his innocence and will continue to vigorously fight the charges against him. Anyone here in the chat. We have over 200 people in the live. Anyone believe he is innocent? I am just curious if there's any outliers out there. Anyways, other key FTF execs, including former Alameda CEO Caroline Ellison, FTX co -founder Gary Wang and former engineering head Nishad Singh have all pleaded guilty to various charges and work with the government to testify against Bankman Freed in the five week trial. Now, Bankman Freed had pleaded not guilty to all the charges. And during his trial, he took the stand to maintain his innocence against the best wishes of his lawyers who told him to shut the what up, just saying, and marking the FTX November 2022 collapse as a number of big mistakes I made. He denied any wrongdoing in the FTX relationship with Alameda, attempting to distance himself from key decisions, which we all know is not true, according to the testimonies of their execs, Bankman Freed pinned the blame on Gary Wang for creating a function that allowed Alameda to trade funds on FTX that it didn't have and claimed he wasn't entirely sure what happened. Oh, I don't know what happened with Alameda's line of credit, which ballooned to billions in the collapsing crypto market of 2022. In his testimony, he also blamed Caroline Ellison for not focusing on risk management. How are you going to blame your ex? That's just why. Anyways, he didn't believe he defrauded FTX customers by taking over eight billion worth of their funds. Instead, he framed it as Alameda just borrowing from the exchange. Yeah, borrowing from investors without their permission is called stealing. I just wanted to point that one out. Now, Max Kaiser responded to this attorney who spoke out and he said, this is tough talk when it comes to the minor league, the drug Adderall ish coiner like SPF, but where's all the bravado when Jamie, the tapeworm diamond, the best the CEO, JP Morgan Chase, gets caught manipulating markets and defrauding the public again or the next crooked Warren Buffett bailout? You talk a good game, but you're no different than SPF. And I think Max makes some excellent points. The big dogs get away with this all the time, of course, but clearly there's levels to this ish, if you know what I mean. Now, what are your thoughts surrounding this case? How do you think this will likely continue to play out in March as they continue with the court trial facing more charges he's up against? Let me know, fam. I appreciate that. I got some very bullish predictions to share with you. In fact, I'm going to be sharing with you the top five Bitcoin price predictions for twenty, twenty four and beyond. Bitcoin continues to circle its highest levels in 18 months. Again, the annual high for the year is currently almost thirty six thousand dollars, but let's dive right into the predictions. First and foremost, Matrix Port predicts forty five thousand within two months. So two months from November would mean January. I could definitely see Bitcoin hitting forty, fifty thousand easy peasy before the halving. But let me know your thoughts. Now, that prediction came from Matrix Port, the crypto trading firm founded by Jihan Wu, himself a founder, a Bitcoin mining giant Bitmain in a blog post in late October. Matrix Port doubled down on a forty five thousand year end price targets. That's the Christmas target. Let's go, Santa, which is initially revealed in January. It was based on a handful of in -house models with Matrix Port also successfully predicting Bitcoin's October gains. Quitting them here, Bitcoin is breaking above the July thirty one five resistance showing that forty five is achievable by the year's end. And again, I think that's a very doable target. But let me know your thoughts. The next prediction comes from Bitcoin. They say new all time high pre halving. I also agree with that, especially if we get the ETF approval. I would anticipate above and beyond sixty nine thousand before the April twenty twenty four halving, but that's only if you know what I mean. We'll see how this plays out. The halving is a watershed moment. We all know the blocks of subsidies get cut in half for the miners in September. Bitcoin stated Bitcoin would surpass its current sixty nine thousand peak before April of twenty twenty four. Now they shared here, no, Bitcoin is not going to top before the halving. Yes, it's going to reach a new all time high before the halving. No, Bitcoin is not going to one hundred and sixty G's because the magnitude of every pullback is large. This means it'll peak after the halving in twenty twenty four. And yes, the target price is around two hundred and fifty thousand dollars. I love that. That's right in alignment with Max Keiser's short term target of two hundred and twenty thousand. Now, they also shared this chart. Both the all time high and the post halving two hundred and fifty thousand target came courtesy of the Elliott Wave theory charting, which we cover commonly here in the show with Bitcoin mimicking the behavior from the previous cycles. And you can see their estimation of how the Bitcoin price is likely to rise is coming directly from Bitcoin. Now, Bitcoin did, however, make room for a total of four pullbacks. As outlined in this chart, you can see one, two, three, four. Before we hit the peak at five, quoting them here, there will be one pullback before breaking to a new all time high, followed by another pullback at around one hundred and twenty five thousand. Additionally, there will be two more pullbacks after the halving, which are not demonstrated here. Now for the next one, three Bitcoin price models, one hundred and thirty thousand dollar target zone. That's right. Let's freaking go. Quoting CryptoCon here, I'm prepared for the lower prices, but the stars are aligning at one hundred and thirty for the Bitcoin this cycle. And the concept also hinges on the halving events and the next peak should come around four years after the sixty nine thousand dollar move in November of twenty twenty one. We all know everything is cyclical and Bitcoin every four years driven by the halving. Now the one million dollar question. How about a one million dollar Bitcoin price target leads us to Kathy Wood of ARK Invest, the CEO and chief investment officer, has joined former BitMEX CEO Arthur Hayes in doubling down on her seven figure price prediction when this could happen, understandably up for debate. But changing macroeconomic tides have emboldened what remains a daring Bitcoin price prediction. In October, Hayes maintained that the path to a one million dollar coin was in full effect thanks to the macro reality. Now quoting BlockWorks on the Margin podcast right here, this was shared actually on an interview. If people lose faith in the bond market and this fiat artificial construction we have created over the past 80 to 100 years, this global economy and how it has been structured, if we lose confidence in that, then the amount of money that's going to be looking for an alternative is going to be something that we have never seen before. He shared over in an interview and speaking of Kathy Wood, she was just on Bloomberg and here's what she shared when she was asked, what's a better hedge against inflation? Is it Bitcoin or is it gold? And very boldly she said, Bitcoin hands down, hands down is a hedge against both inflation and deflation. Yes, so is gold, but Bitcoin is digital. And if you look at the incremental demand we are going to see, but gold already has its demand. You know, it happened already, right? Bitcoin is new and institutions are barely involved in the young people would much rather prefer to hold Bitcoin than hold gold preach. So it's interesting that both gold and Bitcoin are hedges against deflation, but Bitcoin has been doing better recently preach and Bitcoin naturally will consider outpacing gold. I think it was Max Kaiser who said for every dollar, the Bitcoin price action increases. I'm sorry for every dollar, the gold price increases expect Bitcoin to go up by over $20 meaning it will continue to outpace gold by a factor of 20. Let me know if you agree or disagree fam. And we spoke about Kathy Wood and her a $1 million price prediction. In fact, she even has a bullish case scenario by the year 2030 of Bitcoin hitting $1 .48 million. Keep that in mind. But now let's discuss Arthur Hayes, the BitMEX founder predicting Bitcoin price to rally 2700 % taken us to $1 million per coin. And then we'll dive into the latest updates with the likelihood of the spot Bitcoin ETF being approved this month in November. According to the major asset manager, here we go. BitMEX co -founder Arthur Hayes is doubling down on a prediction. The Bitcoin is destined to reach the seven figure price. Hayes says that a monetary policy tool known as the yield curve control will act as the catalyst for Bitcoin to reach that 1 million Mark, a gain of around 2 ,700 % from the current level. Send it, let's go. Central banks use the yield curve control to influence the longterm interest rate level by buying longterm bonds as much as possible to prevent the rate from rising above the intended target. And according to Hayes, the entire U S government is enabling a loose monetary policy environment. Even as the fed continues tightening. Now the BitMEX founder first predicted seven figure Bitcoin earlier this year in March in that essay, which I covered here on the show. And at the time, he argued that China's loosening of his monetary policy would trigger Bitcoin to explode to $1 million per coin. Hayes also says the decision by the fed mid this week, uh, pause the rate hike interest rate suggests it's time to pump it up, pump, pump it up. And according to the BitMEX founder, the feds decision would trigger other central banks to also ease their monetary policy. Quoting him here over to you, BTC, let's go. I shall increase the pace of my rotation out of treasury bills and into Bitcoin and ish coins. Now that the fed had paused over two meetings, every other central bank has cover to print expect massive stimulus coming from China, Europe and Japan. So there you have it coming directly from crypto Hayes. Just blaze. Let's get it now for the moment you have all been waiting for. Let's dive into our featured story of the day and discuss a Bitcoin ETF being approved this month in November. And what would that mean for the crypto market? Let's break this baby down. We have Steven McClurg, the chief investment officer at Valkyrie investments has put forth a strong indication that a landmark approval from the U S SCC for a spot Bitcoin ETF can transpire by the month's end. Send it and let's go. The approval of the spot ETF is currently one of the biggest factors influencing the Bitcoin price as well as the entire crypto markets trajectory. You can say that again now alongside the financial giants such as black rock, the world's largest asset manager fidelity, which is about half the size of black rock. We got Vanek, we got Invesco, we got Valkyrie, one of the companies at the forefront of the battle with the SCC over the spot ETF. We also have grayscale. Don't forget the GBTC product. We have the firm managing to Bitcoin related ETFs at the moment. Now Valkyrie Bitcoin and ether strategy ETF and the Valkyrie Bitcoin miners ETF with a combined asset value of 51 .1 million at this time. And they also have active filings for spot Bitcoin ETF. Now McClurg, citing the latest amendments to Valkyrie spot, Bitcoin ETF app anticipates the SCC will issue another series of comments within the next weeks, potentially setting the stage for the approval of the 19 before rule changes by the end of the month. Send it quitting him here before anything else happens, we get a second round of comments and I believe we'll probably get those comments in the next one to three weeks. A late November approval likely means a February launch. So note that if we get the green light in November, it means the Bitcoin ETF would likely launch a few months later in February, which would be right in time again for the Bitcoin having. Now he also shared with ETF .com this interview suggesting a timeline for the SCCs response to these crucial amendments. He also argues the SCC can wait until January to ask the applicants to put the final touches on their S one filings. That's the other alternative scenario. Now Nate Geraci, host of the ETF prime pod explain that Valkyrie CIO suggests SCC can approve the 19 B fours exchange rule changes for the spot Bitcoin ETFs by the end of November and then the S one registration statements early next year. These don't have to be approved at the same time, so keep that in mind. Though they need both for the ETFs to begin trading. Now in recent weeks, the SCC has been actively communicating with ETF apps and disclose that the agency is carefully scrutinizing all spot Bitcoin ETF apps. The focal points of the SCCs inquiry have pertained to the comprehensive explanation of various risk disclosures, methodologies concerning index usage and net asset value computations, environmental risk inclusions, as well as detailed insights into custodial practices. Recent amendments to filings by entities such as BlackRock and VanEck have been augmented to eludicate how initial fun seating could be conducted and also note that BlackRock already began seeding their ETF back in October, which was last month. This is something that Larry Fink their CEO has already disclosed. Now because of that, industry experts remain cautiously optimistic. We have Matt Hogan, the CIO of bitwise asset management, highlighting lingering concerns, quitting him here. Market manipulation is still a potential stumbling block. Custody isn't a wrap, so there is still a lot of work to do, he stated. Now the anticipation isn't purely speculative. The man forecast suggests substantial interest. McClurg envisions about 10 billion bucks flowing into these products within the first one to two months post launch. While bitwise projects 50 billion in inflows within the first five years. I think that's extremely conservative. I could see trillions of inflows within five years, but hey, to each their own. Valkyrie revised its spot Bitcoin ETF filing October 30th a few days ago with an S1 registration statement submitted to the SCC outlining the Valkyrie ETF. The proposed fund shares are intended to be listed under the ticker BRRR on the NASDAQ stock exchange. Valkyrie updated their app and a part of a wider trend as several firms have similarly refiled their spot ETF apps signaling a concerted effort toward regulatory compliance and optimism for approval. Bloomberg ETF analyst, James Saferard identified these amendments as positive signals for progress and possible imminent approvals. Let me know which you think will get the green light first from the SCC. We all know it's imminent. We all know it's going to happen, but when is it going to be November? Is it going to be December? Could it be January? Could it be March? Let me know in the live poll we have on the screen. I have some bonus content to share with you before we dive into the live Q and A. This is from jury and Timur. Why is this so relevant? He is the head of macro at fidelity fidelity being a four and a half trillion dollar asset manager. He's the one who predicted a billion dollar Bitcoin price by the year 2038 and here's something he just recently shared. He shares some incredible threads I want to share with you. Bitcoin is volatile, but it's scarcity and adoption curve create the potential for it to be a high powered hedge against monetary shenanigans. I think of it as exponential gold and in this chart it shows you Bitcoin going past $1 .2 million per coin. That's pretty sexy. Gets me excited as he shares here. One of the attributes of Bitcoin is that it's a network asset and as such it's adoption curve has followed the typical S curve shape. We have seen many of the S curves throughout history and he continues here in the thread. The question, where is Bitcoin's journey along that S curve? A network assets value is driven by its adoption curve, so the slope of that curve matters a lot. Makes a good point. And when I first went down this rabbit hole in late 2020 it's adoption curve, which I defined as the number of non -zero addresses was very steep. It resembled the S curve for mobile phones during the 1980s and the 1990s, which was pretty promising. I'm going to read you a few more now. However, as the real rate narrative changed from dovish in 2020 to hawkish in 2022, the adoption curve flattened and it is now closer to the slope of the internet adoption curve from the two thousands and it has not made much progress since 2021. Now we also had some other threads which are very valuable. I'm just going to read the lead part of it with Bitcoin moving up. Once again, will its adoption curve accelerate as it did a few years ago and how does the macro trend on rates affect it? There's some very insightful data. If you want this, check the show notes below the video in the description. I'll include all of this. And he had one more good thread continuing the discussion from the recent thread on Bitcoin. I highly recommend you check this out because again, this is the head of macro over at Fidelity, one of the world's largest asset managers. So there you have it, my crypto fam and don't forget to check out cryptonewsalerts .net for the full premium experience with video and to participate in our live Q and a, and I look forward to seeing you on tomorrow's episode.
A highlight from AI literacy with Mara Cairo, Product Owner, Amii
"That. If you can do a very quick mic check. Alright that's perfect. That's recording, this is recording, that's recording, we're just ready to press the button to start. Alright. Okay so the next time you're here for me I'll kick off, I'll do a very brief intro to the various bits I need to promote and then I'll welcome you on and we'll kick off. Alright, only one minute late, that's fine. That's pretty good yeah. Alright, let's do it. Hello ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, welcome to VUX World with me, Cain Simms. I am delighted that you can spend your autumnal evening with us or maybe it's an autumnal morning depending on when you listen to this but it's definitely feeling autumnal right now. Where I am in the relative north of England, this is the time of year when it starts raining and pretty much doesn't stop raining until probably around about February time. And so I've got my fleece on today. I'm still wearing this summery kind of hat, I have no idea why I'm wearing a summertime cap because it's definitely hot glove weather right now but anyway thank you for joining me. Today we're gonna have an epic conversation about AI literacy, about how businesses can be looking to implement AI properly, ethically, responsibly, where to start, and a whole bunch of use cases and areas where AI is really gathering speed and being really useful in healthcare and agriculture, oil and gas and many many other industries. I'm gonna be joined in just a second by Mara Cairo who is the product owner at Aimee and we're gonna be finding out all about Aimee and all about Mara's work in just one minute. But before I do that, if you are working in AI, which you probably are if you're listening to this podcast, then if you are interested in putting the good work that you have done to the test, then you can enter the AI World Series Awards. It's happening next year, the kind of votes are open now if you want to enter, the entries are open now. There's all kinds of categories, there's best use of AI in insurance, best use of AI in healthcare, travel, hospitality, all of the verticals that you would expect to be in there, there's best use of AI in video, for images, for product, text, voice, you name it, there is a category there. So if you are proud of some of the stuff that you've been working on this this year and you are interested in putting your deployments to the test to see if it is award worthy, then definitely get yourself involved in the AI World Series. You can enter now, it is AIWorldSeries .com forward slash enter if you want to go straight to the entry page and best of luck. And also, if you are around next week, November the 9th, we are doing a webinar in partnership with Wisdom, where we'll be walking you through a framework for chatbot optimization. Many teams, many companies, they deploy a chatbot, it kind of does its job for the first couple of months and then things change and it stagnates a little bit or maybe you reach this kind of ceiling where you're not really sure what to do next and how to take it forward, whether what you're working on is the right thing to be working on, whether it's moving the needle in the right direction. And so if you are really in need of some assistance in terms of figuring out, we've got a chatbot or a voice assistant or an AI agent, it's kind of going alright but we're not really sure how we can squeeze more performance out of it, then the webinar next Thursday is absolutely right up your strata. You can go to vux .world to sign up now and I'll wait two seconds for you to go and do that.
A highlight from 1:58 / 19:35 Banter Bubbles & Bitcoin Trading Indicator Top 3 Altcoin Sectors For November 2023 (Solana, AI & M
"Many altcoins are absolutely exploding right now. You can see today Solana is up over 20%, Rolbit's up over 17%, NEAR's up 16%, Uniswap up over 17%. Alts are going mental and this is off the back of a really strong Bitcoin run in the month of October and now leading into the month of November. So in today's video I want to talk about three of the altcoin sectors that you should be focusing on in the month of November as potential outperformers. We all know how important it is in a market like this to be able to identify the strong narratives especially if the market continues in its positive direction you want to make sure to capitalize by being in the strongest sectors. So before we get into those three sectors let's look where the market currently sits. The way I'm thinking of Bitcoin right now on the higher weekly time frame is in terms of ranges. You can see here that Bitcoin has broken above the range high at 31k and is now in a range between 31 .5 and 42k. You can see here that the bottom range was 18k to 25k 25 to 30k and then from the current range higher to the next all -time high you can see that's one other big range. So Bitcoin doing a lot of the grunt work here for the rest of the altcoin market breaking above this level structurally looking really good on the weekly time frame. If we head over to the monthly crypto charts we can see that November was an exceptional month for Bitcoin rising over 28 .5 % but November also historically is actually crypto's best month so November coming in at 35 .51 % whereas October historically averages out at 26 .9 % so that's just a little bit of an indicator that the party may be over just yet for Bitcoin. Of course though Bitcoin dominance has still been going up now it's starting to reverse a little bit but by and large for the altcoins to start significantly outperforming although we are seeing some sector outperformance now you would want to see a concrete reversal on Ethereum. So looking at the ETH BTC chart right now you can see we're currently sitting below range low on the weekly time frame. Super important for altcoins that Ethereum can get above this level, hold above this level and then start to break this diagonal orange line here. Start to do that and ETH would start to look really nice versus Bitcoin and ETH as the leader of the alts would definitely signal some sort of bigger altcoin rally. So let's see if this ends up being a deviation below like it was the prior time last June when ETH BTC dipped below range low. So this is definitely a chart that I'm looking at right now it is starting to reverse a little bit cannot hold hold above that support line that will be super important for getting confirmed entries on not only Ethereum but also a lot of other alts. So let's move into the narrative space now because we know Bitcoin looks really good ETH BTC starting to show signs of reversal the market looks good but that means nothing if you're not in the right coins. So at the moment a really interesting trend is starting to present itself and that is the coins that are performing super well now are also many of the coins that were performing really well in January and February this year. So it's almost as if the market just decided to take a sabbatical so in order to trade successfully now all you really need to do is look back to January and February to find the strongest narratives. It appears as if the market dynamics haven't changed that much since earlier in the year and that's why you see coins like AI coins and Chinese coins starting to come back to the forefront now the market is getting a little bit more strength. So out of this list I'd love you to answer in the comments below what narrative are you most bullish on for next cycle? Is it AI? Is it real world assets, gaming, ZK, LSDs, DEXs, SocialFi, NFTs, L2s? Let me know in the comments below. For me I think real world assets are a super interesting vertical obviously I'm also pretty interested in the AI space but I think it's still relatively early the ZK space I think will be super prominent we need privacy solutions and scalability so I think that'll be prominent of course crypto gaming as well is something I like but let me know in the comments below I'd be super interested what narrative are you most bullish on for next cycle in this space? Alright let's get into the three narratives that I'm looking at for November. Before we get in I want to give a quick shout out to one of our official show partners SmartX. They actually just announced their official integration with 1inch which essentially unlocks a new world of possibilities given the fact that SmartX's pools can now be seamlessly accessed and swapped directly through MetaMask and hundreds of other apps that are partnered with 1inch so I think this is a massive step forward for the platform and if you do want to access any of these pools you don't have to go through MetaMask you can use the link in the description and go directly to their website where you can earn super high APRs across a variety of pools across Arbitrum, Ethereum, Polygon, BNB and Base and of course the value prop of the exchange is the fact that they are a solution that mitigates the negative effects of impermanent loss when it comes to LPing if you've ever LP'd I assume a lot of you did back in the bull run you would understand the frustration when your token balances get skewed so that is a problem that SmartX is solving with their proprietary impermanent loss algorithm so link in the description if you do want to check out SmartX and deposit liquidity into any of the pools to get access to some of those crazy APRs for passive income. The first narrative I want to discuss in light of the strongest trends I'm seeing for November is the AI sector.
A highlight from SBF Trial, Day 16: In Final Cross Examination, SBF Gets Caught Again by His Own Words
"The paperback version of my book, The Cryptopians, is out now. It contains a new afterword covering recent developments in crypto since 2021, when the book went to press. Plus, this version names the person I suspect to be the DAO hacker. In case you never got to read the book in hardback, or, like me, you like to read paperbacks or bedtime reading, order today. Check our newsletter and the show notes for the link, or just search for it at any of your favorite bookstores. It's The Cryptopians — idealism, greed, lies, and the making of the first big cryptocurrency craze. Thanks for reading. Hey everyone, Laura here. Welcome to the Unchained Recap for Day 16 of the SBF trial. Thanks for tuning in. The government wrapped up its cross -examination of former FTX CEO Sam Bankman -Fried on Tuesday with Assistant U .S. Attorney Danielle Sassoon shooting more rapid -fire strings of questions at SBF that underscored the incredulity of some of his claims, plus a mic -dropping set of final questions that seemed to indicate the defendant's knowledge of his guilt. In her cross -examination, Sassoon interrogated the defendant's relationship with Bahamian officials, his efforts to determine who would have spent the $8 billion of missing FTX customer funds, his concern — or lack thereof — about the fiat ad account, and his infamous Nov. 7 tweets telling customers' assets were fine, which he deleted the next day. The defense followed with a redirect examination aimed at recreating reasonable doubt that the 31 -year -old former FTX and Alameda research CEO did not defraud or conspire to defraud customers, investors, and lenders. It used the time to give Bankman -Fried space to further expound on his answers in the cross -examination Monday. The prosecution started its cross -examination by asking Bankman -Fried about whether he cultivated a close relationship with Bahamian officials. For instance, she asked whether SBF recalled proposing to the Bahamas Prime Minister Philip Davis that FTX pay off the country's national debt of roughly $11 .6 billion. SBF said, quote, I don't remember that. Sassoon also asked SBF about having a conversation with Davis' son about a job in NFTs and giving Davis and his wife, quote, floor -side seats at FTX Arena to see the Miami Heat. She brought up a screenshot of a Signal group chat named Project Chinchilla Chatter, where SBF had joked that former co -CEO of FTX Digital Markets Ryan Salem was a member of the Bahamas government. She also mentioned a private dinner and played a video from the Crypto Bahamas conference. Davis was in attendance at both, alongside guests like former US President Bill Clinton, former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair, singer Katy Perry, and actor Orlando Bloom. Then she pulled up an email from November 9, 2022, between the defendant and Bahamas Attorney General Ryan Pinder. By that point, FTX had halted withdrawals. And yet, in the email, Bankman Fried wrote to Pinder, quote, we have segregated funds for all Bahamian customers on FTX, and we would be more than happy to open up withdrawals for all Bahamian customers on FTX. Bankman Fried admitted that FTX was reopened temporarily solely for Bahamian customers. When Sassoon asked him about what she called Alameda spending the FTX customer fiat deposits from the North Dimension bank account owned by Alameda, Bankman Fried said he did not learn until September -October 2022 that FTX customer fiat deposits in the North Dimension account had been, quote, used. Under the quick questioning from Sassoon, SBF admitted that it was, quote, permissible for Alameda to borrow and use fiat deposits, and yet that he didn't tell his employees not to spend FTX customer deposits, didn't set up measures to segregate FTX customer funds from Alameda's funds, didn't tell Alameda employees to keep FTX customer money in the North Dimension bank account for the benefit of FTX customers, and yet made representations before Congress about the safeguarding of FTX customer assets. Bankman Fried claimed that in September -October 2022, he learned that $8 billion of customer money had been spent. When Sassoon asked him what information he learned about who had spent it, he said, quote, I don't remember knowing anything about particular employees. She rejoined her, so it's your testimony that while you were CEO of Alameda, by the way, I think she meant FTX, some unknown people spent $8 billion without your knowledge? Then she asked him, you didn't call in your deputies and employees and say who spent $8 billion? He said he asked Ellison how it happened. Sassoon asked whether he had fired anyone for spending $8 billion of FTX customer deposits. He responded, no. She responded, and so, just to be clear, it's your testimony that while you were Alameda CEO, your employees were spending millions and then billions of customer funds without you knowing it? SPF denied that it was his testimony. During the defense's redirect, Cohen asked Bankman Fried why he had denied to Sassoon that he had spent the $8 billion. SPF first stated how he didn't think, quote, there was a clear, simple pointer decision where a particular person or group decided to spend the money. Moreover, he, quote, wasn't particularly interested in trying to dole out blame for it. That wasn't my priority. It was generally something I deprioritized as later, and I tried to focus as much as I could on what stuff has happened, what's the best thing we can do going forward. Similar to the earlier line of questioning about whether or not Bankman Fried had tried to identify who had spent $8 billion of FTX customer money, Sassoon showed multiple times that SPF's actions don't quite match his story. For instance, he described simply overhearing about the fiat ad account from FTX co -founder Gary Wang and director of engineering Nishad Singh just after Ellison had feared that Alameda might have gone bankrupt. Earlier, he had testified that at this point, SPF learned that Alameda's liabilities to FTX were $10 billion, not $2 billion as he thought. In this section of the transcript, Danielle Sassoon says, and you didn't say, hey guys, what's this fiat ad account that had an $8 billion bug that almost made Alameda bankrupt? SPF replied, when I heard it, I didn't have all that context, but I did ask what the fiat ad account that was an account was referring to. Question, and you were told, weren't you, that it had to do with Alameda's liabilities to FTX for customer funds, right? Answer, not at that time. I was told they were busy and I should stop asking questions because it was distracting. Sassoon asked, so it's your testimony that your supervisees told you to stop asking questions? In the overflow room, people laughed. Sassoon aimed at Bankman -Fried's credibility, highlighting tweets that, from the government's point of view, demonstrated how the defendant misrepresented FTX's financial status to customers. She focused on several tweets SPF posted on November 7, which were deleted the day after, once it became known that FTX did not have the full amount of assets to process customer withdrawals. Bankman -Fried said that before FTX went bankrupt, but as customers were rapidly withdrawing from the exchange, he was writing tweets because, among other things, he wanted to reassure customers and have them leave their funds on the exchange instead of withdrawing. Referring to the statement in the November 7th tweet, quote, FTX has enough to cover all client holdings, Sassoon said, quote, your tweet doesn't say that Alameda has enough to cover all client holdings, does it? He agreed. She reminded him that in previous testimony, he said that when he wrote this tweet, he was referring to the fact that Alameda had more in assets than liabilities. He said he wouldn't put it that way, but then she asked, quote, on November 7th, FTX itself, if you disregarded Alameda's assets, did not have enough to cover all client holdings. He disagreed. Bankman -Fried admitted that even if he and Alameda had liquidated its assets, for example, by either selling their investments in Robinhood and recalling their money from Modulo, the amount was still less than needed to cover FTX's obligation to its customers. And Sassoon asked him if these assets were investments. He said yes. Then she said, quote, you tweeted, didn't you, that we don't invest client assets? He said, that is correct. For the final line of questioning for the cross -examination, Sassoon created a mic drop moment that indicates SPF knew who the four co -conspirators were even before all four were publicly known. Sassoon began by asking, quote, Mr. Bankman -Fried, you would agree that you, Caroline, Gary, and Nashan were the ones involved in the decisions to spend FTX customer money by Alameda, right? He said no. Then she asked if he had learned in December that Caroline and Gary had pleaded guilty. He said yes. When asked if he knew that they were both cooperating with the government, he said he wasn't sure, but, quote, I may have. Then she pointed out that in January, he would have learned that Singh had also pleaded guilty. He said January or February. She asked if, in December, when he'd heard about the guilty pleas of Caroline and Gary, he'd been surprised not to learn anything about Nashad. He agreed. She responded, because Nashad was the fourth person involved in your scheme to use FTX customer money, right? He said nope. She pulled up the same Google doc written on December 25, 2022, in which, in Monday's testimony, Sassoon had shown he'd been wondering if he could get the Robin Hood shares transferred to himself. However, this time, she focused on a different section of the document, labeled Nashad. Question, do you see it says Nashad? Answer, I do. Question, and A says, quote, lots of the complaints, et cetera, filed at this point make claims like the three co -conspirators in a way that doesn't really seem to leave much room for them adding on a fourth. They don't seem to be keeping a seat warm for him as a defendant. Do you see that? Answer, I do see that. Question, B, also there's no plea deal, no nothing, yet. Do you see that? Answer, I do see that. And quote, C, what does this mean? One, he got immunity. Two, they aren't bothering with him. Three, they'll just have a separate parallel set of complaints for him once they get past whatever the blocker is. Four, something else? You wrote that Mr. Bankman -Friede, correct? Answer, I think so. After the defense's redirect, the judge and both teams of lawyers had a charging conference to revise the jury's instructions. On Wednesday, the defense and prosecution will give their closing statements, then the jury deliberates. The end is in sight. We'll see you next time.

Welcome, Karen. Thank you so much. David. We have Jerry from Honda, who has been holding and waiting to ask you a question. Hi, Jerry. Hello? Hurray all this morning. Great. Thank you. I've got a Mexican olive trees that I planted about 3.5 years ago was doing great. The worst of look has been mowed over stepped on everything. Uh, in one year it exploded and was beautiful Snow hit. Uh, I called y'all whenever. After the snow storm and everything I told me to cut it back and So I did all that my issue with it now is and I had to cut it back really far just to fund green on it. The diameter of the trunk is about two inches. Uh, And the problem with it now is the new growth that comes out. A lot in plentiful but the problem with it is that the leaves are so big and the stems are so weak that they just break right off. Okay, So if that if that's the case You might want to thin it out a little bit in that inner canopy and look for and try to spread spread them out. Instead of having 20 and I have less and spread them out north South West east and select the biggest ones. And that will reduce that now, Um Do you have any other plants or grass or weed competition? Close that trunk of that tree. Uh, no, sir. Uh, I mean, it is. It's pretty much wide open, Okay, so so malted and replenish that mulch every year twice a year with double shredded hardwood molds. Make sure that you don't have any extra saw multiple upon the crown. So you know, exposed the crown of it a little bit. Have you given it any nutrition or fertilized it a little bit. Have. I did fertilized it actually, once since the snowstorm and what did you use? Uh, he was, uh, I'm not sure granulated fertilizer. Yes, sir. Granulated, Okay, freeze and shrubs. Okay, So if you have that, put a cup or so on the outskirts of the drip, scratch it and watered in do it again in six weeks, so we might need a little bit new Nutrition that strengthened up those stems a little bit, but thin it out. Check the crown mulch. It And it's just it's recovering. So it just needs a little bit. Help and shaping it up. Yeah. Awesome. Well, I appreciate all year imposed and Hopefully it makes it well, if it's come out, it's amazing. Everything that came out for mid February. Things want to survive. Things want to live. So that's good. Yeah, exactly. Well, I appreciate everything. You all have a great weekend. Thank you so much for calling in. Jerry, This is 1200. W o Ai the lawn and garden show. I'm Hilfer here for Bill Roedy. Is he on vacation or vacation? Any celebrates his birthday this week? Oh, my gosh. Happy birthday. I wonder if I should get him a present. That would be nice. Yeah. Did you? You know it was last week that you brought in so many fantastic vegetables. And I used every single one of them. I even used the eggplant cbb in a air fryer to make little sticks that had breading on them. They were really good. You know, I am not criticizing it. But a couple of the cucumbers were like Shaped like is like the letters C. Well, How does that happen? How come all the ones we see in the store or just like perfect? So we have an old um Um, clothes hanger, Uh, old fashioned clothes hanger out there, and it's not being used and I didn't want to take it down. And you know all that work, so I said, You know what I've seen so many greenhouse type cucumbers grown before. I got some big tubs and grew them up on the tomato cage until they reached the top. Of the of and they're covering it covering almost like a greenhouse cucumbers. So it depends Where the the fruit you know the cucumbers. I'm male and female flowers. And so depends where the fruit was attached. Maybe it something was in its way. Oh, okay, like a sun lights an obstacle in its way. And or not as the best part pollination. It need it, and that's what has some of them have that unique curvature. No, I like it because I know then that it's grown otherwise you gotta kind of train them a little bit, so they're all from the top down and all the fruit are hanging. But there's always one or two that kind of sneak away. That are hiding between leaves. Yeah, Yeah, but they all tasted delicious. They're all great that cucumbers, my favorite folks, So this fall if you never try to sweet slice Cucumber. That's an awesome cucumber, sweet slice. All of the stuff that you gave me was absolutely Why do people never grow? I always ask my own questions. Sorry. This is the free questions that I get. But why do people not grow lettuce like it seems like that's what people eat the most. When they go to the store. The challenging lattices people are planning it at the wrong time. So we've got to keep it real real good. I around October, so you need a clean bad. Very good, Well prepared bed seed bed. Um no weeds good drainage and get it ready and as soon as it starts cooling down And stays cool. You water that bed up real good. You get the lettuce that you want to try. Reflect the seeds out on moist soil. You do not plant lettuce seat. It has to have like to germinate that scene. So when you flick it on top of that moist soil that moisture that soul brings the seat down a little bit. So it has a good see the sole contact and the next time you water is when you see Green Leafs already Germany. Okay, And so we grow as a cool weather crop around October and we can do multiple plans through January, and there's so many different levels. You can go to Johnny's The like seeds for seed or the nurses have Packages or you can buy a little plants as well during the late fall early winter time as well. But let us you can grow in containers. There's so many decorative lattices that looks so beautiful and that that are edible leaf type. Lettuces. So, yes, we can have fun growing a lot of lesser but it's cool weather and needs cold weather. You know how I always think to myself? Well, I wonder what language is the easiest to learn, But they're all kind of hard. But would you say what kind of lettuce would be the easiest one to try that I could have the most successful and if we can get you some Crawford receding lettuce. Sometimes the nurses will have packages. Otherwise we'll get you a package. Our red cells is a good one or go to Johnny's select seeds and Pretty much all the Southern types of lettuce is that they have on their website would be worth trying. It's so funny to me. I never think about growing from seed. Yeah, because 20 years back yes would be the norm. But We're in a society now that people want things blooming. People want things big, and that's fine. But do your homework. Do it correctly Work with the Texas certified nursery professional, an independent nurse, of course, sources local and proven the test of time plants as well.

I mean, you know, there's not much of a home court advantage to speak of clearly, Um everybody is playing either in front of zero crowd are very small crowds. And, you know, I just don't think that you can You know, they're the only conclusion you can draw that that has some sort of impact. Which was not the case in the bubble, But there's you know, whatever psychological impact there is of being on the road of having hostile crowds were having a supportive crowd. All that once that's gone, Um and I think it's showing up. Understandings like Look across the standings. There's there aren't that many great teams? There's a lot of mediocrity. There's a lot of teams a little bit above are a little below 500. You know if it's exactly if you wanna look at the glass half full, you can say Well, there's a lot of teams that are still in it. That's fine, but I think the flattening of the standings You know, speculatively. It's impossible to prove, but it seems like that could be part of The lack of home court. And then, of course, the other obvious impact has been You know, two dozen games that have been postponed because of, you know, some combination of guys. Either being sick or being in contact tracing protocols. And you know, it's been disruptive that that's settled down over the last couple weeks, so Um, that's that's good news. And then we'll see what the second half this season hold. They still haven't given us that schedule. I was going to say if you told the commissioner of the NBA that we'd be sitting here in mid February, and it would have only had, uh, as you mentioned slightly above a handful of games postponed, but not a ton of them. I think they would have been pretty happy about it. Considering the state of the country. I know it's an everyday changing thing, but from where we started to where we are now, I think the NBA has actually done a pretty good job of staying ahead of the curve and keeping his many games scheduled and played as possible. Yeah. I mean, you know what people have to obviously realize with all of this is that No matter what your rules protocols guidelines, you know, however, you want to Set out the rules of engagement for a season. They're still subject to the conditions around them, and you know the virus is still raging. Fortunately, it's you know, infection rates have gone down in the last couple weeks across the country. But it's not an MBA problem. Of course, it z, you know, societal problem and writing to manage it about as well as they can. Um, you know, you can't eliminate the risks entirely. As long as you're playing, and so you manage it as well as you can. And I think you know to the extent that the MBA has Postpone a bunch of games. You know Carter, it's just because they erred on the side of caution is not that it was because those rosters were decimated by guys being sick. It was mostly a lot of guys. In contact tracing protocols, which is, you know, to the NBA's credit there that You know they don't. They don't have to pull those guys from competition. They're doing it to be on the safe side. And I think it's paid dividends for them. We mentioned no crowds, as some venues around the country are allowing some crowds in minimal at best, so far, but we are starting to see the pants be able to get back into the building, at least on a limited basis. But it opened up a can of worms down in Dallas because the Mavs had in the game that they're playing with no crowds chosen to not play the national anthem since the fans weren't there, But then the fans were allowed back in and someone noticed. Hey, they didn't play the national anthem and it became a huge story. Mark Cuban explained it as best. He did the NBA to go hardline stance and said, If we're gonna have our fans, we're gonna have the national anthem. Everybody's gonna play. Play it going forward from now on. It became a pretty big story should it have I don't know how to answer that, Jodi. I mean, you know, Yeah. We understand the politics in this country, and we understand how a story that is Potentially minor in scope can spin out of control. So I don't think it was actually that big of a story. To be honest, I mean, seems to me it came and went within a day or two. And we move on to the next thing as we always do. Um I don't think it was that big of a deal. Okay? Do you believe that we should play the national anthem before? Since I'm talking to you, You're Mr MBA. I'll just say NBA games, but I could say it for any of the major sporting events in this country. It's a tradition that's been around for a long period of time. Is it one in your opinion, it should continue. It's a policy decision for the league's to make. It's not for me to say. I mean, I don't Think it's necessary. I don't I don't think it has anything to do with the games. I got nothing to do with sport. I don't think we played anywhere else. Before people settle in, and people argue that well, you know, it's a massive gathering of people around a kind of community. Sore concerts, sore movies. So are you know all kinds of other, you know? Work today. New. We don't everything else with it, So it is a strange kind of association. But it is a tradition that's when the people are used to. And so if people you know, like doing that before the game to kind of bring everybody together You know, That's the argument that they make, um You know, I say, I don't see any real direct line between Playing the anthem and playing a sporting event. Um But You know it, Z kind of ingrained in tradition. How it back about Sy, our guest here on CBS Sports radio. Let's take him back onto the court. The hottest team in the NBA A and arguably the best team in the NBA right now is the Utah Jazz some cosmetic changes in the roster during the off season, But basically it's the same team coming back from last year, where they made some inroads in the playoffs but then got picked off. But this year they've been nothing short of spectacular and they're beating everybody, not just the lesser teams in the NBA. They're beating the best the best. How has Utah improved as much as it has? Well, part of it is is that you know they didn't finish last season. The whole, you know when they lost billion Bogdanovich, um during the during the layoff and then before the bubble To hand surgery. That was certainly a setback for them for when when they played in the bubble. Um It was my Connolly's first year last season with the team. After an entire career, Memphis Running things a certain way playing a certain way. It was a thing, just a hard transition, especially because you went to a team. Where there was already, you know. Star Garden Donovan Mitchell. Who had the ball in his hands a lot. And so I think the adjustment plus some injuries for Conley Just made for a tough first season, and he is Back to the incredibly, uh No, just just effective, productive. Player that he we. We always knew him to be in Memphis and part of that health part of its comfort level. Um And so that, you know that makes a big difference. You're adding a guy who while he's never been named to the All Star team was an all Star caliber talent. Everybody's known that And You know, while his Ross stats Don't show it. The advanced deaths indicate that he has been really critical to their wild success this season. And then they just, you know, they have a lot of really good, solid players cut Flashiest roster. of Donovan Mitchell. But It is really effective group and they Move the ball really? Well. They shoot threes at a really high clip. They make the meta.

If you've not done your pre emergent herbicide in February like you're supposed to. If you're following the schedule, then wait till Well, just the end of February now. So today is the 13th Wait, at least till the 25th moving forward. And of course, we'll know a whole lot more next weekend as well. But please, just hold off for a couple more weeks. And here's the reason why You could put it down today. It's just the cooler air is making the soil temperature cooler. And we need certain soil temperatures to make pre emergent herbicides and fertilizers do their job better. You could put it down today and you could put it down in 30 days, if cost is no object.

"Leader Mitch McConnell is now proposing at the impeachment trial, not start until mid February. This was about getting out out of the new Democratic majority leader, Chuck Schumer, but also about buying former President Trump a little bit more time here. He was just impeached one week ago, he has struggled to find a defense team. We're learning that he has hired Butch Bowers as his first lawyer. All right. Hey, They're happy Friday to you, and we got a lot to talk about, including some of what? We were telling you about a couple days ago that the state was going to make the move for vaccines to where you would have to show proof of residency. Wells got Ricky's ended up putting that in place in the state of Florida yesterday. So indeed, you do have to show residency. We have some other changes that are starting to take place with vaccines where they are going to be provided and how they're going to be administered as there's a move away from hospitals in South Florida over two more of the state run programs, and there's so much confusion about the vaccine programs as well. You know, you have the visor vaccine. You have the Madonna. One is run by the Feds With Operation works speed that happens to be the visor. The Madonna goes to the state and the state distributes locally and then the local officials make decisions. And so within that there are Often more questions than answers. We're getting closer to having answers about some of what's happening in real time. Well, indeed, we are waiting for more doses to come in to the state and from the federal government, so I'll catch up with all of that. But Of course, this week, the attention has been largely focused in Washington won. The people who's been on hand. All weekend has been providing knows that firsthand perspective. John Decker from great television, White House correspondent, Senior National editor and John Wow, where to begin. There are many places but the first thing I guess is a little bit of a surprise. I think to hear that Congress which of course, now completely controlled by Democrats. Might not be ready to move on a covert package until March. What's going on there? Well. Part of the problem has to do with some moderate Republican senators who have indicated at the price tag for this covert relief Bill. $1.9 trillion is too high. For them. Of those Republican senators include Lisa McAliskey, Susan Collins, Mitt Romney, and if you don't have their support, then you're not going to get the support of those who are further to the right. In the Republican Party. And so that $1.9 trillion covert relief bill when all is said and done. If such a bill passes Congress, it's going to be significantly reduced in number. Well, of course in the Senate. As you're referencing Democrats hold the narrowest of margins. It's a 50 50 Senate with vice president Can Ella Harris being the time breaking vote in the Senate? If it gets that far yesterday, Mitch McConnell is talking about a power sharing agreement. The last time we are in this situation was the incoming George W. Bush administration, there was a power sharing agreement that was worked out during that window of time. Any chance we could see something like that transpire here. Well, Obviously, we've done this before. It has happened before. I believe that Trent Lott was the leader for Republicans at that time on the leader for Democrats at that time was Tom Daschle, They figured out a way to, uh, essentially share power. And you have that sort of blueprint that the current leaders in the Senate Chuck Schumer on Mitch McConnell could also follow. But it does take time and in the meantime until they come to some sort of power sharing agreement, every committee in the U. S Senate right now is still controlled by Republicans and that that's an interesting thing. When you consider all the confirmation hearings that are ongoing on will be ongoing for the next few weeks, trying to confirm The members of Joe Biden's Cabinet. And so that's problematic, but I, but I think they'll work it out. In the meantime, as you played that clip leading into the segment with me, you have this impeachment trial for former President Trump, Uh, that we still don't know. The dates for Senator McConnell has proposed a timeline to delay this impeachment. On the timeline would be such that a trial would actually take place likely in mid February. John any chance I mean, one of the things that can be done since the house impeached. There has to be some kind of substance. You know, subsequent action taken in the Senate, but the Senate could just vote to dismiss, Could they not? They could. That's not going to happen, given the numbers that exists exists right now in the Senate. Ah, and in fact, Mitch McConnell's timeline indicates that's not going to happen. He is, after all, the leader for Republicans in the Senate. His timeline begins on January the 28th with in which the court of impeachment issuing a summons. To President Trump on then by February, the fourth, the president would have to answer this one article of impeachment and you're fast forward a few weeks by February, the 13th, the House would have to submit a rebuttal to the pretrial briefs that was submitted by, uh, former President Trump's defense team. So Mitch McConnell is going for with the idea This trial is going to happen. I think that every member of the Senate Is going on that likelihood as well. And so we will have an impeachment trial. I don't think it's going to be a long as the one that lasted last year, three weeks. It's likely to be about three days. 3 to 4 Days, Max because there is so much on the Senate's plate that they need to get done beyond this impeachment trial, including working on this legislative agenda that Joe Biden Eyes putting forward and need And Yeah, just my point in mentioning is that indeed it is a choice. It is a choice not to vote to dismiss and to occupy time oxygen everything else to pursue this impeachment trial. Of Donald Trump after he's out of office. And so that will end up framing some of women to get to my top three takeaways here is well, John. I appreciate it. Thank you for your outstanding reporting all throughout the week. It is truly appreciated. Have a great weekend. Oh, thanks a lot. Brian. You have a great weekend too. I'll talk to you next week for sure. Have a good one. All right. Sounds good. John Decker again with great television, White House correspondent, senior national editor and as for my top three takeaways today. Rules for the not for May. You know, briefly touched on this yesterday, but I wanted to give a little time to permeate. So you had the inauguration. It was the highest profile example. The hypocrisy that we've seen during the pandemic yet I mean, no shortage of lockdown hypocrites that we've seen across the country people exposed that will end up locking down their communities, their states in many cases, telling their constituents and small businesses, you can't be open. You can't do these things, and then they go out there and they do him right. We've not seen anything quite like the inaugural So the reason I didn't make this one of my take ways yesterday I mentioned I don't like getting involved in hot takes. You have a lot that can transpire during the course of an inauguration and everything that goes into that day. I wanted to give it a moment to breathe..
