"Down the trail in this area of vast majority of those who succumb to altitude, sickness, or exhaustion or hypothermia. It happens in this area. After, the summit on the way down Oh really. Oh I didn't know that that's really depressing. It's like Oh, you've achieved the thing and now you're going to die. Yeah, yeah I don't like that also I would think that any sort of dangling rope mummy would be very dangerous and I can totally understand doing the old heave. Ho! Ho, and so these bodies are just collecting down in this gorge. and. It's just like littered with Colorful Ski Jacket Sad as a horror movie in the making according to the laws in Nepal Everest is considered sacred in any remains are to be removed immediately. That's the law you need to remove them immediately. The problem is it's nearly impossible to retrieve remains from this area, which is also called the death zone. cheery, there was this one guy's name was. Peter Kinloch and he had just summited Everest when he was struck by sudden blindness. Now this is another problem that people have at these altitudes. His team reported that Peter was an excellent health climb up, and they also noted how overjoyed he was when he reached the summit, this was a dream that he had but due to the high altitude. oftentimes this happened in Peter's case, climbers are struck with retinal hemorrhages, bleeding from the cells in the back of their eyes, and it can cause blurred vision or just outright blindness she's. So he's on top of fricken Everest in he goes. Blind guides notice that kid locks. Loss of coordination was starting to become more prominent at that point. He admitted he could no longer see so sherpas tried to help him. He's twenty eight years old. They try to help them down the mountain. They shared their oxygen and their medicine with him over ten hours in hopes of keeping him stable enough until they reached base camp, but the team began to suffer from hypothermia and frostbite. They had to make the difficult decision to leave him behind now. Yeah, OH, my Gosh! Those poor people several months later, one of Peter King locks friends. A guy named Rodney. Hogue was making his own attempt on Everest. And he spotted Peter Sitting on a ledge, his remains were perfectly preserved by the ice. He said quote when I saw him I instantly knew it was Peter. You could see his face. It was just like he was lying on his back taking arrest. Jeez the climbed down to Peter was too dangerous to undertake, so hope took a moment. He paid his respects to his fallen comrade before continuing on. On now before Kinloch had died, the SHERP. Is that were with him at clipped him to a fixed line on the side of the mountain, and that's probably where he will remain until somebody cuts down. That's got to be super bizarre to all of a sudden. See your dead friend on the side of a mountain. Yeah, he's been dead for months and he looks like he's taken a nap. Be Concerned that I was like hallucinating. Yeah, nobody knows exactly how many bodies are still on Everest? But the estimate it to be just over two hundred eighty bodies. Most of them are Sherpas, which is not surprising. That makes a lot of sense. They reside in the Tibetan Nepali border area, interestingly the Sherpas when they die the perish. Perish at the lower altitudes while the foreigners perish higher up closer to the top of the mountain I. Don't know why that is exactly, but but that's what statistics tell us interesting. According to the Himalayas database, most climbers expire either ascending or descending from the summit, mostly descending very few diet base camp. Now there have been very strange and unexplained sightings on the mountain particularly in this area that I'm talking about the dead zone. Just as you're coming down from the summit Pemba, Dorji Sherpa from Nepal claims to have seen black shadows during his two thousand four ascent of Mount Everest. When I paused at amount of rocks I saw what looked like spirits in the form of black shadows coming toward me. They had their hands outstretched. They were begging for something to eat. Dorji thinks the shadows are obviously spirits of mountaineers that were killed during past climbs, and that's interesting, because it's a tradition to leave food near a deceased climber's body on the mountain as a form of respect, Mohan Singh a resident of local Himalayan village. He reportedly encountered a very strange man, wearing mountain, climbing gear outside of his home. During the winter months of two thousand four, he said the sky turned to black, and the stranger reached for sings shirt he was. He was trying to grab him to keep himself from falling, but his fingers went right through sings body just like a ghost might do. Strangers Body. He said, continuously changed sizes, growing up to nine feet, tall, and then suddenly shrinking to quote the height of a chicken. Dad's weird. That's terrifying. I mean your brain must be doing crazy things when you your body is being put through that that tremendous stress will that that that is true, and that's what makes this particular story interesting is this is a a resident of a village that is certainly acclimated hikers go you. You know Internet of this this village on their way to and from, so he wasn't. He wasn't hiking. He wasn't doing this this dressy thing actually chopping wood chopping, what can be stress in June of nineteen, thirty three Frank Smyth while he was climbing suddenly. You sense that he was not alone. He descended from one of Mount Everest's notorious death zone areas, and during a break from these this journey he encountered the presence of a man. Described it a mint cake with him. He attempted to break his mint cake in half, and as he was handing it to this man, the man just slowly disappeared right in front of his eyes. Sometime later Smyth discovered to dark bulbous. Hovering over him, he described one of the objects as having a quote. Squat developed wing, while the other had a beak like protrusion kind of like the spout of a tea kettle. K The objects remained pulsating over him until eventually disappearing in a passing now, that could be explained by the brain's lack of oxygen at a higher altitude. That's still pretty pretty frigging weird. Be Creepy. In one thousand, nine, hundred eighty five guy, named Dougal Hanson and a friend of his Doug Scott, claimed two cents quote a third climber aiding their survival one particularly brutal Mount Everest. Ascent has an got were members of the very first expedition that successfully climbed Mount Everest using uncharted path, so this was. Arduous journey. The ghostly mountaineer that the men ran into. I would hope that on that kind of journey. You'd want to hold your head up high. Oh, an arduous journey got it Arjun journey no gone account. Topical Jokes Katrina. All home bringing the topical Joe Folks. But a band from the sixties. Early seventies actually but. I will look that shit up seventy two Arjun. Hold your head up. Featuring Rod Argenta. Former lead singer of zombies founded in nineteen sixty nine. Yeah, but when was that song hit? I didn't say. When was the song ahead? I said a banned from the sixteen. semantics. So the ghostly mountaineer that them, so the ghostly mountaineer that the men encountered apparently helped them out, he provided extra company, and encouragement has an in Scott claimed that the phantom climber help them make it through the night. And then he just disappeared. That reminds.

"Told Hawaii news now that the earthquake caused a large boulder to come down onto a highway at least three people were killed for injured on Sunday after a small plane crashed into a parked helicopter during takeoff at the only airport in Nepal. Everest region. I'm Barbara Kusak. I'm Barry ritholtz. You're listening to masters in business on Bloomberg radio. My extra special guests this week are Tyler and Cameron winkle Voss. They are the founders of not only wink dex, but Gemini, which is a crypto currency of volt and exchange. Let let's talk about wink dex because I haven't really gotten to that. This is a -ffective -ly your custom index of various crypto currencies is that a fair way to describe it. So it is a blended price index of bitcoin prices. So it's just one of the products we've been building over the past couple of years when you say blended is it multiple cryptos or is it just one concert. There's one for remember correctly, bitcoin and ether. So the risk profiles of exchanges. Vary a lot because every crypto exchange is also Custodio. Ian. So when you trade somewhere, you've got to commit your capital there. Right and some exchanges are like. Mt. Cox in some exchanges are like Gemini. They've never had an incident. So. Prices can differ in the industry quite a bit from different exchanges because of the risk profile of how they custody whether or not you can get Fiat dollars inner out, right? So the idea of the wing tax was to try and create a price because there's a lot of disparate prices and understand what that sort of blend is similar to stocks where you have things trading on the New York than as the go through all the list of different exchanges. Very often. You'll have a different price across this. You want to come up with? Here's the actual price of bitcoin at this moment. That's that's correct. Yeah. The question that that I find intriguing from an institutional perspective is I've heard and read various party say it's challenging to get liquid and bitcoin for size, meaning hundreds of thousands of dollars has that changed. Is it going to change? Future. If someone wants to move a million dollars in bitcoin, can you do that quickly or we not quite there yet? So the when we first got into bitcoin twenty five thousand dollars was hard to move into the market and actually acquire it in a market couch. Move the price if you did it in a way, you know, you could definitely impact the market. It was one hundred million dollar market cap world that that when we first got in. I think what people one of the common misconceptions about bitcoin today is the liquidity. There's a lot more than people think is there you could move a million dollars in and out relatively easily. And so very very quick look really quickly and a lot of times because these exchanges are full reserve. The depth of the orderbook look shallower than it actually is. But Gemini, for instance, we have the world's biggest liquidity providers outside of crypto their customers. So if you can think of a name. Of a market maker on your stock exchange. There's a really good chance there on geminis. So we have the same amount of liquidity in a sense. The same players are there. They just don't show as much because it's full reserve, but it's eating its dollar for dollar backup. Prime brokers. Haven't read totally moved in the space yet. So, but they're they're all sitting there. And if they see orders come onto the orderbook, they're going to move funds and try and add liquidity and take the other side of that trait, assuming it makes sense for them. What what do you make of Fidelity Investments being so aggressive so early moving into the crypto space the rest of Wall Street had kind of let's wait and see what's going to happen. Fidelity. Maybe I wonder if they missed the boom or something, but they appear to have said, hey, this is the next big thing. We won in early. I think it makes a lot of. Sense. And it's a smart move there. You know, they see the opportunity today. It may not make the business case may not be there today, but it will be there tomorrow. And as he's businesses work getting their first is an advantage for sure I think a lot of Wall Street got really close in two thousand seventeen and we're about to take the plunge. Maybe they set up a trading guests with one individual thinking, they would scale that out. I think Goldman Sachs built started to build a trading desk. And then it seems to be a little bit on pause in people have backed away. But there are going to be first movers. And there's going to be a lot of value that accrues to them. I think because of that. So so I love the ad campaign that you guys have put together for Jim ni- because it's so counter to the sort of wild west early days of crypto. So just a full when I was doing my homework. I saw a couple of things the revolution needs rules was one. Done crypto without chaos, which certainly makes sense for people who seem to have lost cash when something implodes or a company loses their their key. It just seems insane. That that happens money has a future. You guys are trying to take this exchange and make it like a regular mainstream currency exchange or am I over selling that? I think that's that's right. You know, we we enter the space when it was a wild west. We know what the revolution looks like without rules. It usually ends up with catastrophic failures people really getting injured a lot of value being lost. And you would never put your money in an unregulated Bank. It would never cross your mind and yet in crypto like that's that's the sad reality of the market to some extent. I mean like we were there five years ago. Like, I don't miss that. I'm not in this tell Jake for the early days of bitcoin or crypto. It wasn't as interesting as it is today the best entrepreneurs weren't in the game. And I think that the you know, the regulation has brought in certainty. It's brought in more money, therefore investment. Therefore, better entrepreneurs, it's sort of been this incredible great cycle. So we live that wild west firsthand. And it was scary. And a lot of people got burned, and we create a Gemini in the wake of all of that as a solution to that problem. So people could engage with crypto in a way that was felt is safe and compliant, as, you know, opening a Bank account at J P Morgan or whatever. And so. So we we know what that's like. And you know, so I think we're pretty informed on on the the shortcomings of it. And I think the the money has a future really plays on this idea that most of the payment mechanisms that we grew up with are decades old the fed wire system is ancient credit cards came in the fifties and sixties, and I remember the first days of EBay when I ordered some stuff I did money or through through the post office. So you go to the post office, you give them one hundred bucks. They give you like a slip. That's basically credit you put an envelope. You mail it off you get your good and then pay pal came out. And you're like, wow, that's amazing. It just maybe life so much easier. But then you realize that it's still sending value through the existing system in protocols. It's really not a global payment system. And then you discover bitcoin and like oh my God. This is truly amazing. You can send any amount of money for very cheap anywhere in the world pretty much instantaneously. And and so that fast forward to the past year, we built the Gemini dollar, which is a stable coin peg to the dollar on the theorem network and now with Gemini mobile app, I can send literally proxies for US dollars to anybody in the world. Instantaneously? We've literally brought dollars onto the blockchain, and that's like the future of money. It's kind of like, it's so counterintuitive, isn't it? Yeah. I mean, what Skype did for for voice? I remember when I was a kid long distance calls for a thing expensive. Yeah. Like, my mom like, shh. Like, you're calling from California nothing. We lived in Connecticut at the time as expensive as a big thing. And that's what moving money has been for for a long time. Since the beginning of time up your banker, you have to put in these wire instructions, it's like these ancient protocol is you send a wire and Friday it in the Bank holiday on Monday from New York to London it's probably getting there on Tuesday. It with the numbers in incorrectly. It's going to be sitting in limbo for a long time. The joke and cryptos you're better off getting going to plan on JFK and flying from New York to London with a bag of cash because will get there quicker so crypto the ideas cryptos basically making money sending money in value is easiest sending Email. So that's kind of the that was a ha moment five years ago. And it still is today blockchain originally was touted as unhappy people. And now we're starting to see some articles about small hacks not into the wallets, but to blockchain itself is that a genuine issue or these just really little fringe situations that don't undercut the the main premise of blockchain. So a lot of the early hacks were actually company hacks or entrepreneur failures. They weren't failure. Of the bitcoin protocol, which is never been hacked. We have been speaking to Cameron and Tyler winkle Voss, founders of Gemini a crypto exchange as well as Harvard connection and.
