"Could stick to that timeline. In November of 2022, FTX group filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy in the U.S.. Three of its subsidiaries, including FTX Japan, were affected. However, the Japanese financial services agency asked FTX Japan to stop operating before the U.S. bankruptcy filing. After an FSA order, FTX Japan presented a plan in December of 2022 to restart user withdrawals. This plan proposed that FTX Japan customer assets should not be involved in the company's bankruptcy proceedings. This is because regulations require exchanges to keep client funds separate from their own. According to NHK, FTX Japan has about ¥19.6 billion in cash when it stopped operating in November. There was over $138 million at the time. In January, debtors for FTX supposedly got back more than $5 billion in cash and crypto. And now that we've said FTX, we have to talk about SPF. That's the rule. Now let's talk about Sam's bail, because Sam beckman freed is currently out on bond. He's facing a criminal fraud charge in New York. The judge in charge has warned him that his bond status may change. And that would happen if he keeps disobeying the bail conditions that the court has established. Earlier this week, federal prosecutors wrote to the court. They accused bankman freed of breaking an earlier court order, and that court order forbade him from using encrypted technology. They said that he used a virtual private network to watch the Super Bowl. So you see the problem, right? Because make no mistake, VPNs are encrypted. The prosecutors asked the court to consider stronger consequences. These may include blocking his use of cell phones, computers, and Internet connected devices. They suggest that he should only use them in specific case related situations. On Thursday, there would say hearing to discuss the prosecutor's letter. Sam's attorney, Mark Cohen, opposed the suggested measures. He referred to them as draconian. Cohen argued that his client requires Internet access and applications such as Google Docs. This is important to prepare for the upcoming trial effectively.

"This is Bloomberg, daybreak Europe. So let's go to the markets then where European shares are down 6 tenths of 1% only energy stocks are seeing any gains on the U.S. stock 600 this morning. You've seen the likes of Adidas with big declines because of their warning around earnings Adidas down by ten and a half close to 11% this morning. Stop futures then for the U.S. in this kind of risk off environment are also lower two tenths almost three tenths of 1% for the NASDAQ futures. The surprise name in the ring for BOJ governor has sent the Japanese yen soaring. It's come down a little bit, but it's still up by two tens of 1%. Bit of a dollar spot index is flat and the other big story is do we get 6% fed rates, big yield curve inversion in the U.S., the biggest since the 80s, 360 eight for ten year yields up by two basis points this morning. Okay, let's bring you the details in our top stories of that Japan story then the yen surging as Caroline was saying, although pairing some of those gains, the reports that the government will nominate kazuo ueda as the bank of Japan governor to succeed haruhiko Corona. His Bloomberg's kazunori takada with more detail on ueda's background. He served as one of the board members on the bank of Japan from 1998 to 2005. That was when the BOJ first embarked on negative rates and quantitative easing. So he was a board member then when the bank took those actions, he's also known for voting against lifting of negative rights back when he was on the board. Kazunori takata says government, the Japanese government had initially approached the bank of Japan, deputy governor masayoshi amamiya to take on the role. However, the Nike reports that he refused the role. We have an update now coming through from NHK, the Japanese broadcaster. So this is a report from them saying that kazuo ueda, who, again, according to reports in the Nike has been asked and has accepted to be the next bank of Japan governor is saying that it is an important to keep bank of Japan easing for now and of course that seems to contrast then with the views at least at the start of this session that maybe this was a more hawkish nomination. Again, reporting that the nominee, the reported nominee, pushing back against that hawkish interpretation, at least by saying that it's important to keep the BOJ easing for now. Again, the bankers fan pursuing this extraordinary easing policy with something called yield curve control to continue buying bonds and keep rates low. Yeah, although Ada has declined to comment on those reports around whether he is actually the pick for BOJ governor or not. So that's quite interesting. Again, NHK reporting that lied. Well, let's move on, talk about the UK GDP was unchanged in the last three months of 2022, after a revision to the previous three months of two tenths of 1% down. However, the cost of living crisis and industrial action hit the UK economy hard in December without declining half of 1% in the last month of the year. Now, professor Steven millard, whose deputy director at the National Institute of economic and social research, Nisa says that 2023 will be a tough year for many. And the key points I think I'd like to make is that although we're not forecasting a recession as such, life is certainly not going to be great for a large number of households. We're not expecting the economy to grow that much at all. So that was Nisa there talking about the expectation for 2023. The chance to Jeremy hunt welcomed the figures this morning but noted that the government needs to bear down on inflation. Okay, so a corporate story now added as shares have fallen sharply after the firm said it may report an operating loss of €700 million this year. That as it deals with the fallout from its dispute with rapper Ye formerly known as Kanye West, the German sportswear maker is warning of the losses. If it has to write off all of its existing yeezy inventory after its lucrative partnership ended in October, the company's new CEO says the business is not currently performing the way it should. And a bit of a business of sports news now just to wrap things up British billionaire Jim ratcliffe is said to have lined up banks including Goldman Sachs to bankroll a bid to buy Manchester United sources through the banks are prepared to fund a takeover offer for the English football club with bonds and loans.

"Here, encrypted, it's 10 p.m. Pacific time, my name is nicodemus and welcome back to the crypto overnighter, where we take a nightly look at the crypto NFT and metaverse space, and keep in mind nothing in this show should ever be considered financial advice. It is Monday, November 21st, it's 10 p.m. Pacific time, which means it's time to get started. Celsius is in the news again. And I'm feeling like Celsius and Voyager and three arrows capital are all kind of happy about this mess with FTX. Because now that means all of the attention is on Sam. We've spoken a number of times about FTX and how John Jay ray the third is not at all impressed with how Sam and company ran things. The guy who cleaned up enron's mess was amazed with the degree of utter incompetence shown. Enter shoba Pelé. Pelé is an independent examiner, hired by the bankruptcy court to take a look into things that Celsius. Pelé is apparently alleging that the company never set up the appropriate accounting and operational controls needed to handle customer funds safely. It was released in an interim report yesterday where Pelé laid out a number of things that she saw as part of her court appointed investigation. Celsius custody is an example. Celsius custody is a program that was launched on April 15th. Tax day in the U.S.. This program was set up so that users could transfer swap and use coins as collateral. This is not a reward space program. And in fact, Celsius was ordered to set their custody program up. This came about because New Jersey security regulators felt there needed to be a greater clearer separation between Celsius earning product, which did provide rewards. And so Pelé had issues with the program. In her report, she said the custody program was launched, quote, without sufficient accounting and operational controls or technical infrastructure. And it was that lack of controls that enabled the shortfalls in custody wallet to be funded by other parts of the company. Quote, no effort was made to segregate or separately identify any assets associated with the withhold accounts, which were commingled in the main wallets. Now, which I think that's what sunk SB off, actually. In the court of public opinion, using client funds. And so this is causing some uncertainty, as far as what assets belong to the customer at the time of the bankruptcy filing. Quote, as a result, customers now face uncertainty regarding which assets, if any, belong to them as of the bankruptcy filing. Now, for anybody who's interested, this interim report does do a good job of telling what happened to force Celsius to halt withdrawals on June 12th. She said this breaking point happened on June 11th. And that's because it was at that point that custody wallets became underfunded. By the 24th of June, that underfunding had reached $50.5 million. That was an increase of 24% in two weeks. She went on to say that Celsius is custody and withdrawal programs were thrown together in short order to comply with quote intense regulatory pressure from the New Jersey bureau of securities. They started an investigation last year into whether Celsius earned program counted as a security. Now this one is pretty shocking, although I shouldn't be surprised. According to Pelé's report, they didn't track their balance until May of 2021. Now Celsius was founded in 2017. And until they had a run in with regulators in May of last year, they used Google sheets to keep track of the books. This comes after a notice last week. This filing in the bankruptcy court says that Celsius customers must file their claims by January 3rd of next year that is if they want to be eligible for disbursements from the case. So what this means is any person or entity, an entity could be a person, but it could also include things like daos or corporations. So if you're an entity that's filing a claim, that has to be in the court by 5 p.m. Eastern Time on the first working day of the new year. January 3rd. And so Celsius has a threat on Twitter, explaining the deadline and how to file claims. And with all the brouhaha around FTX, you might have missed that a court ruled on November 1st. The judge ordered a probe into whether Celsius was a Ponzi scheme. Now, customers are alleging that Celsius was using assets of new users to cover the yields and to facilitate withdrawals. Speaking of withdrawals, the court voiced their objection to Celsius opening up for withdrawals and stablecoin sales. The next hearing is due to be held on custody and withdrawal products. That hearing is scheduled for December 5th. Remember when FTX was talking about buying Celsius? It was just October when Sam was saying that if he were to buy up Celsius assets, it would be at a fair market price. And so not pennies on the dollar. I wonder what that would have looked like. Would that have been enough to see FTX through their current problems? Having Celsius assets bought on discount might have been enough to fend off the wolves from the door. On the other hand, I think it's more likely that Sam Caroline and the rest of their merry band would just continue doing what they were doing and then the problem would be just as bad if not worse in a few years. So now let's turn our attention from Celsius to the island nation of Japan. Because while Celsius isn't opening up withdrawals anytime soon, FTX Japan has plans. And those plans include resuming customer withdrawals by the end of the year. In a report that came out today from NHK, FTX Japan is getting ready to open withdrawals. This is after Japan's financial services agency requested the agency's stop doing business on November 10th. This was before Sam took FTX and Alameda research into bankruptcy on November 11th. It wasn't really enough, though, because Japan's FSA ended up taking action against FTX Japan on the very next day. This was in response to reports of FTX credit problems. And so the FSA ordered FTX Japan to shut down their over the counter derivatives trade, as well as suspending deposits from November 10th to December 9th. This means that the exchange should have submitted a plan describing how they intend to protect investors and give greater insight into the current situation. In HK cited an unnamed executive at the exchange who said that they had roughly ¥19.6 billion in cash. That's more than $138 million. And that was their balance as of the tenth when they were ordered to shut down. This action comes 5 days after FTX Japan halted withdrawals from the platform. At the time, they also cited voluntary compliance with those bankruptcy proceedings. Interestingly, according to financial services firm perella Weinberg, many subsidiaries of FTX have quote solvent balance sheets, responsible management and valuable franchises. And so perella Weinberg actually found that several FTX subsidiaries that are debtors. That includes FTX Japan, FTX EU, FTX Turkish operations and zuber. They were all found to be debtors. On the other hand, another FTX exchange based in Japan is liquid. And they're not doing quite as well as FTX Japan. They announced on Twitter that they were instructed by FTX trading to suspend all trading operations. In that statement, liquid states that they've paused all forms of trading because of the chapter 11 bankruptcy filing in Delaware. They said quote, we are working through these issues and will endeavor to give a fuller update in due course. Now we were just talking about FTX turkey. Well, the nation of turkey is getting involved as well. Because their financial crimes investigation agency announced their own investigation into FTX. They said that not only will

"Presented by meta. Good morning, playbook. It's Friday. Today's show, the U.S. ICA reconciliation dance continues in the Senate. It's your political playbook daily briefing. Before we get into what's happening in Washington today, some sad news out of Japan. Former Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe was fatally shot during a campaign speech on Friday from The Associated Press, quote Abe was shot from behind minutes after he started his speech Friday in Yara in western Japan. He was airlifted to a hospital for emergency treatment, but was not breathing, and his heart had stopped. He was pronounced dead later at the hospital, the 67 year old Abe was Japan's longest serving leader before stepping down for health reasons in 2020. From NHK quote, sources with the investigation tell NHK a gun seized at the scene appeared to be handmade, Chuck Schumer made a couple of new moves in his effort to advance two pieces of legislation tangled in political knots. Recall that Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell recently tweeted, quote, there will be no bipartisan U.S. ICA, as long as Democrats are pursuing a partisan reconciliation bill. U.S. ICA, the United States innovation and competition act is the industrial policy legislation that would shower the semiconductor industry with $52 billion of incentives to ramp up chip making in America. China hawks like the bill because it makes the U.S. less reliant on Chinese imports. The Biden administration hails it as a policy that will strengthen the supply chain, boost domestic manufacturing and quote help us out compete China. The new reconciliation bill being negotiated by Schumer and senator Joe Manchin, who you might recall, tanked the lost reconciliation bill back in December, has been inching along. Politico's Burgess Everett and Marianne Levine report, quote, roughly speaking, Manchin and Schumer are working toward legislation that provides $1 trillion in new revenues, half of which would go towards deficit reduction and half of which would go toward energy and health spending. Such a deal is hypothetical at the moment, the tax and energy pieces remain in major flux. This week, the portion of the bill dealing with prescription drug pricing was submitted to the parliamentarian for review, though the two parties haven't yet made their presentations before her. The Democrats had to choose between the U.S. ICA and a reconciliation bill, most of them would rather have the reconciliation bill, so it's unclear how much McConnell's threat matters, but Schumer is doing two new things to put pressure on the minority leader and his GOP colleagues. One, he's amping up the national security case for U.S. ICA. According to a spokesman, Schumer has, quote, requested an all senators classified briefing from the administration on the global innovation and technology race and U.S. ICA. The briefing is scheduled for next Wednesday. And two, he's highlighting a new popular piece of reconciliation. Schumer has crafted a proposal for the reconciliation package that would extend the solvency of Medicare through 2031 by taxing very high earners. Schumer is ready to submit the Medicare proposal to the parliamentarian, likely on Monday. Next week, we'll be busy on both fronts, and these two shimmer moves are aimed at McConnell's threat linking the two bills for what it's worth. We remember back when McConnell thought linkage was bad because it would quote hold a bipartisan bill hostage over a separate and partisan process. One Senate Democrat argued to play the last night, quote McConnell is in a tough spot, blocking tough on China Bill because he doesn't want to extend Medicare and lower prescription drug prices. Then again, this could be wishful thinking. One thing McConnell has learned over the years is that when you're in the minority, there's little price to pay for obstruction. Back on Wednesday night, D.C. protesters targeting the conservative Supreme Court Justices who signed onto the Dobbs decision of returning the constitutional right to abortion got a tip that justice Brett Kavanaugh was dining and Morton's downtown D.C. location. Protesters soon showed up out front called the manager to tell him to kick Kavanaugh out and later tweeted that the justice was forced to exit through the rear of the restaurant. But because Daniel lipman looked into the incident for us and confirmed that account, while the court has no official comment on Kavanaugh's behalf, and the person familiar with the situation said, he did not hear or receive a protesters. Morton's was outraged about the incident, a representative for the James steakhouse, sent lipman the statement, quote, honorable Supreme Court Justice, Kavanaugh, and all of our other patrons at the restaurant were unduly harassed by an oily protesters while eating dinner at our Morton's restaurant. Politics, regardless of your cider views, should not trample the freedom at play of the right to congregate and eat dinner. There was a time and a place for everything. Disturbing the dinner of all of our customers was an act of selfishness and void of decency. Here's what's up in Washington today starting with The White House at 1130 a.m. eastern. Biden will deliver remarks on protecting access to reproductive healthcare services with vice president Kamala Harris in HHS secretary Javier becerra, also in attendance. Seung min Kim and Zeke Miller from The Associated Press scoop the details late Thursday night, quote the actions he was expected to outline are intended to try to mitigate some potential penalties women seeking abortion may face after the ruling, but are limited in their ability to safeguard access to abortion nationwide. Biden is expected to formalize instructions to the departments of justice and Health and Human Services to push back on efforts to limit the ability of women to access federally approved abortion medication or to travel across state lines to access clinical abortion services. At one 55, Biden will depart The White House to head to CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia, where he'll deliver remarks at three 40 p.m.. Afterward, he'll return to The White House and head to Rehoboth beach Delaware. Here's what's on the fight's president's calendar today at 4 p.m. eastern, vice president Kamala Harris will convene state legislative leaders from Indiana, Florida, South Dakota, Nebraska, and Montana to discuss reproductive rights. Prosthetic, queen Jean Pierre will prove a noon. The Senate and the House are out today. One more thing to watch on the calendar today, the June jobs report will be released at 8 30 a.m., along with next Wednesday's June CPI report, this morning's data will help inform the fed when it meets on July 26th and 27th to decide how much more to hike interest rates. The fed is debating between a .5 or .75 percentage .8, a good report today.

the maximum employment pretty soon which implies that we could see the third rate hike as soon as in March Not only that the fed is also talking about the balance sheet at adjustment and we are going to reduce the balance sheet much faster than previous cycle If you record in the previous tightening cycle the fair rate for two years more than two years to reduce the balance sheet Now the official implies that not only they're going to start to run around the balance sheet much as sooner than previous cycles they are going to do it much faster than previously So it's pretty hawkish One thing
