Hasta La Vista, USA! Crypto Companies Look Abroad
"Asta la vista U.S., love crypto. That quote, by the way, comes from a tweet from lawyer Jeremy Hogan. All right, so we kicked off the week covering coin desks tour of the UK. Brian Armstrong keynoted London FinTech week and had a number of conversations that were at once provocative, and at the same time, kind of completely obvious. In one interview, he said that, if the U.S. wasn't able to give regulatory clarity, coinbase would be forced to consider relocating. Armstrong also specifically called out the turf war between the CFTC and the SEC as part of the problem. Later in the week we of course got the hearings which I've now covered AD nauseam. But which basically showed just how partisan crypto regulation is getting, and how the U.S. fear in this domain is to quote congressional witness Austin Campbell, collapsing into chaos. Now this stood in stark contrast to the European Union, where on Thursday, the European parliament voted by a huge majority to pass the markets in crypto asset or Mika legislation, which is a landmark first comprehensive crypto legislation from a major global power. Austin Campbell again articulated the significance in stark terms. He writes, I told my class yesterday that Mika might be the most significant development in crypto for the next two years. The details work out, always TBD as they implement. The EU has created a framework to formalize how crypto works in the largest economic bloc to affect such rules. In the past, when Europe has taken these steps, normally they have been surpassed as a place for innovation by the United States. However, in this case, the hysterical response towards a new technology by U.S. regulators in some politicians means the EU has a massive advantage unless Micah is truly broken in ways I am not aware of yet in the short to medium term. The longer that advantage persists, the longer it will take to overcome if the United States ever manages to act, which I don't think is a foregone conclusion. Excellent bit of playing offense by the EU to get this done. And puts the UK in a position where they need to act fast or get left in the dust by the continent. It seems the future of crypto is no longer in North America.

Is There No Dress Code for the Office Anymore?
"Broadcast from the home studio. In an office building and obviously, when I take the elevator, which is every day, I often share it with other people. And I marvel at the way they are dressed to go to work. These are all people going to offices. It's an office building, after all. And the dress code is apparently nonexistent, if you want to wear a T-shirt, if you want to wear a polo shirt, if you, I think the only thing I have not seen, and that's significant giving that, given that it is Southern California, which has warm weather, good part of the year. I have not seen people go to work in shorts. Have you? I think it's the only thing left. And I wonder if that didn't, don't some teachers and warm weather cities, which is every place when it's summer. In North America, I think some teachers have worn shorts, but I'm not certain about that. And I'm sure that for many of you listening, this is a non issue. People want to be comfortable, what's the big deal? Okay, I think it is a big deal. And it is for that reason that I raise the issue.

Report: Climate change, disease imperil North American bats
"North American bats are in big trouble. Scientists say that more than half of North America's bat species are likely to diminish significantly because of climate change, a report by experts from the U.S. Canada and Mexico says 81 of the continent's 154 known bat types are at risk of severe population decline in the next 15 years. The report was published by the North American bat conservation alliance, the consortium's chief scientist winifred Frick, says we face a biodiversity crisis globally and bats play a very important role in healthy ecosystems needed to protect our planet, the U.S. geological survey, says bats give U.S. agriculture a $3.7 billion annual boost by gobbling crop destroying insects.

Billboard Chris Travels North America to Warn Against Child Mutilation
"Have to call out this movement that's becoming more and more violent. Absolutely. So here's the message we should be sending in a sane society. There's no right way to be a girl or a boy. Our children are beautiful just as they are. There is no such thing as a transgender child, no drugs, no scalpels are needed. But the Democrats are going to continue pushing this agenda because they've been held hostage by the radical left of their party for Republicans. They need to understand. This is such a winning issue. You'll never lose a single Republican vote. You only pick up moderates, centrists, and leftists. So if people want to support me, they can go to billboard, Chris dot com. I travel all around the country. I'm going to be in Florida in a couple of weeks. And check out my Twitter account at the word Chris, same thing on Instagram. And thank you so much for having me on today, Jack. I really appreciate it.

The Vatican hopes to breathe new life into its relationship with Native Americans.
"I'm Walter ratliff with the religion minute. This week, the Vatican tried to heal its relationship with native tribes in North America by rejecting the doctrine of discovery based on 15th century decrees that legitimized the colonial era seizure of native lands. This goes beyond land. Michelle Shenandoah is a Professor of indigenous law at Syracuse university. She says the Vatican's rejection of the doctrine should prompt governments like the United States to address past abuses. Native groups have called on the Vatican to formally rescind the papal bulls that provided the Portuguese and Spanish kingdoms, the religious backing to expand their territories in Africa and the Americas for the sake of spreading Christianity. Truly, it has been decades that indigenous peoples have been asking for attention to this. Father David McCallum says the Pope's visit to Canada last year opened up a new opportunity to address the church's relationship with Native American tribes. I'm Walter ratliff.

Pope Francis heals from a respiratory infection while the Vatican hopes to breathe new life into its relationship with Native Americans.
"On this week's AP religion roundup of France's heels from a respiratory infection, while the Vatican hopes to breathe new life into its relationship with Native Americans. An infant is comforted by his mother as Pope Francis baptizes him at the gemelli hospital in Rome. Francis spent most of the week there, healing from bronchitis and was expected to be released Saturday. Meanwhile, the Vatican tried to heal its relationship with native tribes in North America. This week it rejected the doctrine of discovery based on 15th century decrees that legitimized the colonial era seizure of native lands. This goes beyond land. Michelle Shenandoah is a Professor of indigenous law at Syracuse university and a member of the oneida Indian nation. She says the Vatican's rejection of the doctrine should prompt governments like the United States to address past abuses. It really has created generation upon generation of genocidal policies directed towards indigenous peoples. Native groups have called on the Vatican to formally rescind the papal bulls that provided the Portuguese and Spanish kingdoms, the religious backing to expand their territories in Africa and the Americas for the sake of spreading Christianity. Those decrees underpin the doctrine of discovery, a legal concept coined in an 1823 U.S. Supreme Court decision, which was cited by the high court as recently as 2005. The repudiation of the doctrine marked a historic recognition of the Vatican's own complicity in colonial era abuses committed by European powers. Truly, it has been decades that indigenous peoples have been asking for attention to this. Father David McCallum says the post visit to Canada last year opened up a new opportunity to address the church's relationship with Native American tribes. This captured not only the Pope's attention, but also the wider Vatican's attention. Indigenous leaders welcomed the statement as a good first step. Even though they hoped the Vatican would acknowledge greater culpability for historic abuses. I'm Walter ratliff.

Pastor Douglas Wilson of Christ Church Is a Renaissance Man
"Am talking to Douglas Wilson, pastor of Christ church in Moscow, Idaho, the writer of all about a hundred books, and I can't even begin to list them. So you're kind of a renaissance man. You've been doing many, many things over the decades there in Moscow, Idaho, not just pastoring a church, but you found it a publishing company. You started a college. Tell me about these things. Yes, we started first logos school, which is a K through 12 classical Christian school. We started it for my oldest daughter's kindergarten year. And it's now a thriving school and sort of been the flagship school of the renewal of the classical Christian school movement in North America. Excuse me, I ought to have mentioned that upfront. I forgot how central you, sir, have been in the classical Christian movement in America. And so I do want to talk to you about that because that is huge. Absolutely. If you'd done nothing else that is just huge, do me a favor, just tell me how many kids go to the school in Moscow, Idaho. There are about 650, which when you consider the size of Moscow, it's an enormous school for a town on our size. And then the association of classical and Christian schools began here, and they're now hundreds of schools around the country. And some internationally that are following this model of classical Christian education. And then we started a new saint Andrews college, which has got a couple of hundred students in it. It's a small liberal arts college that we patterned ourselves off of the curriculum that Harvard had in the 1600s. So that was the baseline that we began with. And then adapted and modified for our era.

Interactive Brokers Launches Crypto Trading in Hong Kong
"Zach. You got our first story. What's up? Yeah, I do. Let's go to Hong Kong. We're going to talk about interactive brokers setting up a institutional offering over in Hong Kong. This is rolling out Bitcoin and eth trading to professional investors over in Hong Kong. And I think it really speaks to the shifting geographical landscape, especially in Asia where the mood around crypto is a little bit less dour than it is over here in North America. Obviously with these recent SEC actions, the mood in American crypto is a bit dark. That said, over in Hong Kong, we're seeing an institutional product roll out in addition to some other interesting developments relating to retail. So a couple of things to talk about, I think Hong Kong obviously has been maybe making a play for some of its former glory as a kind of one of the original Asian crypto capitals. Boss a little bit of that shine to Singapore. But even beyond that, you know, Korea, Japan, there's still a lot of excitement in those markets all over in the west, things are a bit bleak. So again, let's go to Hong Kong, talk about the situation there. Definitely a very important part of the crypto ecosystem. And it has been for quite a while. A lot of trading firms set up there. A lot of different legal entities running out of Hong Kong. Hasn't really been in the spotlight the last few years that a lot of eyes have been on the United States or Western Europe. That's where a lot of developers have been. That's where a lot of the action has been. Obviously, we are living in a new regulatory regime with crypto as well as Zach was just mentioning the SEC stuff. So I think people are going to start looking internationally and I think Hong Kong is a strong contender for where people might look towards because it has strong government that has clear rule of law and there's a lot of capital there,

"north america" Discussed on The Decrypt Daily: Bitcoin & Cryptocurrency News Podcast
"Sweeney. I will see you later. She's out at work right now. We have so much news. We have so many things to talk about before even the headlines today is just amazing, crazy, busy morning, and I am recording with a new mic, by the way. So I want to know your opinion if you could tell the difference. I have just got a I just got a shotgun mic because I was sick of having an SM 7 B in my face, couldn't see the screen. It pissed me off for years. I love the SM 7 B's. But if you're reading notes and stuff like that, I'm the computer in front of you. You need something that's a little bit out of your way. So I got a shotgun mic. I was thinking about a lav mic. I'm just gonna play around with different mics until and waste my money until I find the best setup or the best sound for me. So let me know what you think. This is very sensitive, so you might hear some clicking and some scrolling and I don't know. You hear everything with this mic, but we're not talking about mics today. We're gonna be talking about all the things that are happening. First things that's happening right now is the CPI report came out. It's up a little bit from the predicted 6.2%. It's sitting at 6.4%. What is that gonna do to markets? Well, the markets are up. Pre trading, but we'll see if that lasts after the market's open. Did you see cow pens? Bitcoin proof of work rant commercial slash whatever. That was paid for by Bloomberg that was telling everybody how bad proof of work mining was, and they're advocating for Bitcoin to go to proof of state. Did you see that ad? It was so weird. I mean, tell us that somebody has an agenda without telling us that they have an agenda. Did you see that Drake put $700,000 of Bitcoin on the Kansas City Chiefs to win? And I messed that up yesterday, so if you're a podcast downloaded before I caught that one minute in, you downloaded me saying that the eagles won, which was absolutely false. Everybody knew that I got emails, I got text messages, saying like, hey, bro, you messed that up. I know I messed it up. If your phone or computer are downloaded, the podcast after say it in ten 30, then you got one when me saying that the Kansas City Chiefs one, not the eagles. However, going back to Drake, he bet $700,000 worth of Bitcoin on the KNC chiefs, and since they won, he won 770,000 in Bitcoin. My buddy Paul McNeill, he sent me this yesterday and this is a very interesting, interesting development. Circle, the company behind U.S. stablecoin USD C, allegedly issued a complaint to the New York State Department of financial services accusing binance's stablecoin of operating without proper reserve management. Monday, paxos received a wells notice from the Securities and Exchange Commission, stating that enforcement actions are coming related to the stablecoin BUSD. By the way, a wells notice is an official letter from the SEC to inform recipients that the agency is preparing to bring a potential enforcement action against it. They of course disagree with the SEC, and they say that BUSD is not a security. And they said to be clear, there are no allegations against paxos. This goes to my theory, though, and here's my theory, prior heard it last week, coinbase through kraken under the bus in a CZ, SPF, FTX kind of situation, coinbase is trying to corner the market. They saw cracking with their staking services, they're like, nah, we have a way to take them out. They took them out. Circle is throwing B USD under the bus. I mean, we already know that coinbase and circle have been historically buddy buddy. So what are they trying to do? They're trying to lock down North America. This is cutthroat. Bodies are starting to pile up. Coinbase encircle are trying to get this market. North America is going to be theirs, but there's other battlefronts. This is awe corporate strategy. They're taking on their competitors. They're positioning themselves, positioning everybody else outside of them, and they are going to try to hold North America for themselves. I really want to know how binance U.S. is going to stack up with all of this. Can they maintain here? I think that they might be the next target. But there's going to be other battle fronts. There's going to be Asia. We're going to need to chop that up from Japan, Singapore, South Korea, and those are going to be one black, and then the Southeast Asian countries are going to be another black. There's going to be the UK, the EU, South America, Africa, there's a lot of battlefronts out there who's going to walk away with the market share of all these battle fronts. I am going to wait and see. You know, we keep talking about CBDCs, stablecoins, and different kind of currencies. And we keep thinking that this is a new development. Like, oh my God, we're trying to act outside of the fed or the national currency. And yesterday we were talking about historical changes in not only the national currency, but other entities are communities, or religious organizations, and how they made their own currency to operate outside of the governmental structure. And so listener Billy wrote in and said, your discussion on all the various currencies throughout history brought back a topic in my mind that made my jaw drop when I first learned it several years ago. I learned about how many companies up into the 50s, even though it became illegal in 1938. Had mining towns that paid workers with what equals to the company's printing their own money slash tokens because that money was only valid at mining company stores. And he actually U.S. dollars the companies of course hoarded for themselves, leaving anyone that wanted to leave the company basically zero money anywhere else in the country because you don't even use it in the company. And the company store it. A giant financial trap. Happy you brought up this historical perspective on people creating their own currencies. It is not new. It just has been evolved. Just like many other things, keep up the good work, bud, he says. Well, bud, I will keep up the good work and you bring up a very good point. Not only can new forms of digital currency connect the globe in a faster, cheaper way so we can send money all kinds of places for a very reasonable cost and you can self custody your money, kind of like greenbacks or gold under your pillow or in your mattress, this also shows that you can be locked into an ecosystem using a certain currency. And you know what? We don't talk about that enough. We don't talk about that if you are a corporation, let's just say circle, paxos B USD, tether, and now you're confined to that currency, you might have to operate within that ecosystem. I think we spoke about it the other day. Are we going to have these companies come out with wild gardens for their money? For their digital currencies, their CBDCs are stablecoins, and we're only going to be able to operate within their stores. Imagine if it's like a Amazon. Wells Fargo connection, relationship where you only can use their digital currency within the Amazon Wells Fargo ecosystem. I mean, that's kind of what we have right now when it comes to government issued currencies. I mean, not so much right now, but if you were talking about 30 years ago, I remember going abroad, you know, 25 years ago, and, you know, well, we have traveler checks. We had those. We had to go to the bank and just changing outside of your ecosystem. The United States ecosystem was a pain, right? So could we see that developed with CBDCs and digital currencies? I think that this could be a good warning. We don't just want to be able to shop at the company store. We want to make sure that the money is able to be used everywhere. And finally, in this huge intro this morning, because these weren't headlines, you're just different emails that compiled over the past day, blackfire sent me an email notice about getting your money back from firefly. So I want to tell you what they said. So if you have money locked up in BlockFi and you're trying to get your money out because of the whole bankruptcy thing, they have some more guidance. They said, number one, you can now look up your listed claims and BlockFi wallet accounts online, and I put that link in the show notes. And so basically click the link, put in your information and you'll be able to see your account balances and number two, you do not need to submit a claim if you agree with your scheduled amount. And number three, the schedule amounts are listed in U.S. dollars. Black Friday wallets accounts are listed in cryptocurrency, so you will see that your scheduled amounts are listed in U.S. dollars, your weld accounts are listed in crypto. Again, link is in the show notes if you had money in BlockFi. You want to look up your balances

The Sudden Barrage of Unidentified Aircrafts Across North America
"Is the homeland under attack? Are we being invaded by the Chinese or somebody else or something else? Something is not right. In the last couple of days, we have seen UFOs unidentified flying object after unidentified flying object enter our spacer Canadian airspace that has required us to shoot it down. On Friday, Biden ordered the air force to shoot down a balloon with a car sized payload after it violated airspace in Alaska up in the Arctic circle. According to The Pentagon, that's The Pentagon, not the octagon. Remember, it's important. The UFO quote does not resemble in any way the Chinese surveillance balloon shot down off the coast of South Carolina. That plus the location might suggest that it's from Russia or it's a completely different country or other countries that have this technology, not very many countries do, that over the weekend, the U.S. tracked another balloon into Canadian airspace and shot that one down as well. According to Canadian defense minister, this balloon resembled the Chinese balloon. From last week, but it was a lot smaller than on Saturday norad, shot down some airspace, something down in airspace in Montana and sent fighter jets to investigate another radar anomaly. But this time they didn't find anything false alarm. Nope, instead we lost track of the object, which then flew over Wisconsin and Michigan before we finally found it and shot it down over Lake Huron. One of the 5 Great Lakes here in Ontario, Michigan Erie and superior. What is going on? Well, there are a few possible answers here are one of them. China and perhaps other foreign rivals are testing the Biden regimes ability to police and defend our own airspace. Is this an invasion of surveillance operation? Is this a trolling project on behalf of the Chinese Communist Party where they're just kind of getting a thrill with coming into our airspace to see how fast we can react? Another possible answer and maybe a more disturbing one is that these incursions happen a lot more than we realize.

Balloons and More Balloons: What's Going On?
"What's up with these balloons and these objects flying in the sky over the United States that are one by one being shot down. It started off with the so called China balloon. And reports that there was another balloon going over South America, and this appeared to be something that was fairly easy to trace these. This is a balloon from China, and I was a little puzzled at the beginning. Why did they shoot it down as opposed to somehow grounding it so that they can study it? Maybe they shot it down and it's still in a position to study it. I don't know, but then we had reports of a second object, and a third object, the fourth object, the most recent, an F-16, I'm not reading from a news report Wall Street Journal, and F-16 shot down an object over Lake Huron. The object was octagon shaped and was at an altitude of 20,000 feet, posing a threat to civilian air traffic. So there's an obviously an immediate danger, which is that although the sky is very big, there are a lot of airplanes in the sky. If air traffic control doesn't know about these objects, then you could have an airline fly directly into it, that would obviously not be good. Interestingly, having shot these objects down. And by the way, over the last 8 or 9 days, the United States military is shot down at least four objects, at least four, meaning possibly more. Over North America.

She was the negotiator of the sale of Kentucky for the Transylvania company by Daniel Boone, as well as savior to countless settlers and pioneers who helped form the course of American history.

Today's guest is Deborah Gates, author of woman of many names. Deborah is also the 7th great granddaughter of Nancy, but we discuss how in addition to being an incredible diplomat, while all sorts of innovations the Cherokee people, including introducing new loom weeding techniques, and how to successfully raise cows, being the first to introduce the dairy industry tour people.

The primary character of your book as you note in the title had many names, her Cherokee name is nanyehi, or anglicized name is Nancy ward, and she has an honorary name as well. Meaning beloved woman. Can you tell me about these many names and what they say about her? And also the meaning of nanyehi of one who goes about. What do these names say about Nancy or however you want to term her? Well, I generally tend to call her nanny. That's how I grew up hearing her name. It wasn't Nancy ward. I had no idea in retrospect that my 7th great grandmother was a famous Cherokee leader. I knew that she was leader, but I just didn't realize that the world might possibly know about my ancestor. So Nancy was born to spinski and was given many names through her life as the Cherokee and Native Americans often do. They will get a title like the Raven of Kyoto or warrior woman of Kyoto. She had several names as you can if you look at the book and the very beginning I tried to explain heard many different names that she had and what the meanings of those were. She was the beloved woman of the Cherokee nation, which is a title and honor, she was also called Cherokee rose, her mother called her wild rose because she felt that her cheeks had the blush of the inside of the rose. So that's why she was called a wild rose when she was young. 9 he did so many great things in her lifetime that she is deserving of these many titles. Absolutely. And she lives during a very consequential period in relations between American Indians and growing the United States government and before the colonies, can you tell me about her early life and when she's born in the early 18th century, what is happening within the Cherokee nation? Her grandfather, my toy, was the leader of the Cherokee nation in he lived in northern Tennessee, which is and not too far from what would be today known as Knoxville. The tribe was literally spread all over from the Carolinas through Tennessee, down into northern Georgia. That was the basic territory. Whoever held lookout mountain in Chattanooga area was considered the ruler of the area, whoever held lookout mountain ruled the area. The settlers were beginning to find their way across the Cumberland gap and so on and so forth actually Daniel Boone was the one that discovered the way through the gap. But we thought that that was ridge of mountains would protect us from the quote unquote invasion of the white man as we well know that certainly didn't stop anybody, but as you go through time, I think you'll notice that we as a people try to accommodate the white settlers, especially in the very beginnings of our relationship with the many different countries that were coming to the Americas. We had to deal with the Spanish, the English, the French, and all these people wanted to possess, you know, what we had here, mostly our resources, our trees, our minerals, and animals, furs, skins, were highly treasured amongst these other countries. So we were having to negotiate and deal with so many people that I believe as a people, they just kind of had to do whatever was necessary at the moment. If the British were sitting in front of you, you were going to cooperate with the British. You know, they had arms and weapons that we didn't have and we saw what they could do. Actually my choice sent his sons to England on a ship called the fox that took them to England and they stayed with king George the second and were able to get a one on one visual of what was going on there. I believe my toy was the smartest of Fox in sending his sons to investigate the lands that were coming to our lands to see what was going on there. And when they returned, they told their father, there was more people than they could count. So in that sense of things, you know, we were getting an understanding of, I believe that we were fighting a losing battle and had to come together as much as they could. So the lower Cherokee tribes and the uppers tried to stay in close contact with each other so they understood what was happening. If you look back in time, you know, we know that there was things going on at that juncture that they had no concept of. The many ships that were coming with hundreds of men and women aboard and, you know, being settlements and, you know, through my Nancy ward line, I found out I am also a descendant of the Mayflower. So somewhere in another along the line, those branches of the family met and married and produced children. So we can I get a feeling of so much because of my mixed ancestry. I'm not anywhere near, you know, my heart is all Cherokee. It beats red every day. I love the Cherokee people, what they stood for, what they stand for today. So you have to just kind of take the relevancy of what was happening through that time to understand, they had to bend very confused people, very scared of what was happening in their own lands. We believe the creator charged us with the care of the lands that we were born upon. So when we saw that these people

"City global wealth. It's a group that manages more than $800 billion in client assets, North America, accounts for about 50% of the revenues that group produces, since 2018 she has been head of capital markets for the Americas at city, previously she spent two decades leading teams at Citi, Credit Suisse and JPMorgan. She's on just about every most powerful women in finance list, American banker, cranes, et cetera, Kristen bitterly, Michelle, welcome to Bloomberg. Thank you so much, Barry. It's great to be here. So you have really, very interesting background. You've been involved with capital markets for your entire career, what led you to this area. It's really interesting because I'm not someone that you would think would be the typical profile to end up in capital markets or sales and trading. I'm from a very small town in the middle of Pennsylvania, it's a town of about 4000 people. So exposure to markets or investment banking or any of the careers in finance was not something that you really envisioned. And so coming out of school, I studied economics and Spanish literature, and I applied to a program that actually targeted liberal arts majors. It was at bank one at the time it was called the first scholars program, and they targeted liberal arts majors, and the whole concept of it was, why don't we take global arts majors, give them on the job training, give them exposure to a variety of different areas of banking and finance. And so this gave me exposure to everything from investment banking to retail. And ultimately, I fell in love with derivatives. When I arrived and got this exposure and on the job training, I really challenged myself to do the thing that I thought was going to be the scariest. And so derivatives at the time seemed like the scariest, the scariest area, and so I said, all right, at 6 months, let's see, let's see how this goes. And so it was within the corporate equity derivatives team. I was very lucky to have amazing mentors amazing people around me who really taught me about the business taught me about markets and once I started making that translation in my mind that it's just a different language. It's different vernacular. Like when you think of derivatives, it's like statistics, right? If you have a base foundation and statistics, it's just translating those different concepts to a new language, I very quickly fell in love with it. I fell in love with equity derivatives. I thought they were amazing building blocks. And a really creative part, and it was this combination of being, like I said, kind of geeky kind of crunchy, but then being client facing. And so that was really kind of the early formation where I'm like, this is the area where I want to be. I want to be client facing. I want to help clients solve problems, but having this very creative, almost modular part in terms of designing solutions and structuring solutions I loved. At city in 2007, fantastic timing. You take over as head of structured solutions. Tell us a little bit about what that job entailed under normal circumstances and then we'll talk about the couple of years that followed. So I spent a long time in markets. Like I said, big focus on derivatives, both on the sales as well as structuring side. I covered corporate clients institutional clients, as well as ultra high net worth and high net worth clients at the time when I started really focusing in that part of the industry. A lot of those corporate equity derivative teams, they covered both. They covered individuals as well as as well as the corporations. And so throughout that journey and covering different regions, different types of clients, I found that with the high net worth ultra high net worth clients, you developed a much stronger relationship. So this was a part of the market that it really challenged your own understanding of these strategies because these were clients that some of them were very sophisticated when it came to financial products. Some of them it was their first experience. They had a big liquidity event, they sold their company to another company, their company just went public, and it's the first time that they're talking about options, right? And exactly, to be able to hedge and maintain wealth monetize wealth. And so this ability to either go super technical with someone who was an expert in that field, and also be able to roll it back and just explain at a very high level, you know, what is the purpose of this strategy? What is it helping you do? What could go wrong? And so ultimately, given the different types of client segments that I'd covered, I made the decision that I really wanted to be in wealth management. And so 2007, I came over to city. My husband always teases me on this point that he says, you know, aren't you in some aspects kind of a traitor and when you think about market timing was 2007, the best time to make a move. But it ended up being a perfect time actually long term for my career, and so coming into city a lot of changes. And the one challenge there, Barry, was the fact that we were selling these products and solutions that actually work extremely relevant. But obviously, it was a really challenging environment. A lot of market volatility and anything that had the counterparty of a large bank was not something that was going to go over well. So there's always risk involved with always risk. Tell us what it was like when everything hits the fan in O 8 O 9, derivatives blow up, you were basically doing more rational we're helping people customize their risk return profile across asset classes is the way that I think about it. And so there's definitely a pre and post. I mean, when you look at that pre, it was the thought counterparty risk of a bank was solid, right? Like that was something it wasn't even questioned. I'm sure you remember this as well in terms of the bond market, whether you were looking at structured products, bonds, this idea that, hey, it's issued by this bank that bank well-known diversified, financial services institution, and then the interesting thing is, before we really saw the unwinding of risk, I mean, you saw credit spreads wide in, right? You started to see credit spreads more. Marketing of things out kind of, I hate to anthropomorphize markets, but there is a sense that some participants in the market are sniffing this out, and it gets reflected in prices. You can see credit spreads widen, and it's something people are like, wow, that's great. But I think that's one of those, one of those moments in time where you're like, if something is too good to be true, it probably is too good to be true. And questioning why something is yielding the amount that it's yielding. Coming up, we continue our conversation with Kristen bitterly Michelle, head of North American investments for city global wealth, discussing city global wealth. I'm Barry riddle, sure listening to masters in business, on Bloomberg radio

"Not supporting that So we're seeing quite a bit of that going on And Indonesia you know they're draining peatlands to grow palm trees Is there just not a widespread awareness of the carbon value of Pete I mean why is this still being considered a fuel You mentioned access to resources as one factor but in places like in Europe it would seem like they have other opportunities They do And you know Europe is basically turning the tide especially countries like Germany the Netherlands and Great Britain the United Kingdom are as well One of the reasons being is that they're running out of peat You know Germany the Netherlands have lost I think over 90% of their peat lands And they're suffering the consequences not just because it's carbon that's been lost and trying to keep what's left in the ground It's because by removing so much peak they've lost an awful lot of biodiversity because there's so many critters in the world that rely on peatlands to nest For example in North America we have one to 3 billion birds representing over 300 species that fly from the Southern United States in South America to the boreal forest peatlands to nest And the other reason why Germany and the Netherlands and other countries are doing it is because by removing so much peed over the centuries they've dug themselves below sea level And with sea levels rising now they're having a huge inundation of storm surges that are swapping them And so they're using peat as a method mosses like sphagnum can hold back 25% of their hold 25% of their weight in moisture So this is a pretty good way of dealing with flooding around the world Europe is catching on Russia is catching on as well because of the Siberian wildfires that have been out of control since about 2003 almost a yearly phenomenon now But if you have a lot of moisture on the ground as you would in a bog or a fan or a swamp or marsh basically mother nature takes over they fire just stops And we're only beginning to understand the value of these beat lands here in North America We're continued to take them for granted Many states and provinces in Canada focused on this idea of growing trees Canada is going to spend $4 billion to grow a 100 million trees or something like that to try to deal with the climate crisis Which is good Fine But I would say for the bigger bang for your buck would be to restore peatlands degraded peatlands and protect what we have that are there Well what makes it hard to grow a peatland from scratch perhaps Nothing really It really doesn't need a heck of a lot because if you think about it it's an acidic environment generally speaking So it doesn't like nutrients nutrients will kill a bog or a fantastic bag or a fin And so that's why all of the most of the life forms such as the orchids get their food from the air And so you don't need a lot of fertilizer You just need a lot of water and you need the foundation for Pete Those seeds for the various mosses that are foundation for Pete It's not expensive I've seen it done It's not perfect but I've seen where they've managed to restore 87% of the plants that existed in a degraded peatland It certainly is a lot cheaper than trying to grow a tree because a tree really needs fertilizer and needs a lot of water And the risk associated with growing a lot of trees as we know especially in places like California is that you can burn 10 million of them down in a week Where it's very difficult to destroy a fender or a bog or even a marsh because they're just so resilient Mosses are just a super plant Almost nothing can kill it except if you remove the water and even then if you remove the water it still stays alive There's a friend of mine a biologist who extracted a 500 year old moss from a melting glacier in the high Arctic And she regrew it back in her lab So I think it's an economic question Which is the cheaper way to go I think we can go both ways with growing trees But I think the most effective way is to restore peatlands because they have so many services that they provide mitigating flooding filtering water stopping and slowing at wildfire storing carbon and also being a refuge for many animals in a period of extreme drought or wildfire What do scientists know about the durability of peatlands for carbon sequestration you mentioned trees have this unfortunate consequence of burning unless there goes your carbon but how well will peatlands respond to an increasingly warmer climate Well there's no doubt it will be stressed And the question is is that may just take a little bit of engineering on our part To keep diverting water into these areas because temperatures are one factor but I think the most important factor for peatlands is the availability of water to keep things wet and moist so that mosses can continue to grow upward and outward The places like the great dismal swamp in Virginia and North Carolina they're building weirs to try to redirect the flow of water back into the peatlands About another parts of the world they're reintroducing beavers which we basically eliminated from most of the landscape in North America and much of Europe And in Great Britain especially in Scotland they're having tremendous success because you don't have to do anything You just put the beaver in there they build a dam And they're basically nature's cheapest engineers And California I know is beginning to look at this to deal with the wildfire problem There The idea in North America is one of my favorites in doing the research on this was that the idea of using beavers started where they were trying to expand agriculture but the beavers kept coming in and flooding the agricultural areas And they would trap them but it was just not working So what they decided was that maybe what we'll do is transport them up into the highlands We can get the beavers.

"Everybody here and today we're going to be talking about the CyberTruck we have a new prototype of the CyberTruck that has been spotted at the Fremont test facility with a drone flyer video. So look at some of the images from that and some of the changes that we can spot from the CyberTruck spotting. We also have a little bit of news on the Model S and X, the Tesla has changed the ordering process there a little bit outside of the United States or outside of North America. And then we'll talk a little bit about the stock in a couple of other stories. And I guess we'll start there with the stock as we usually do. So Tesla today finishing up 1.3% pretty good day. The macro environmental and strong as well. Tesla up to $1017 and three cents to close out this week. And then the NASDAQ finished up about 7 tenths of a percent. So Tesla doing well, but again, relatively quiet volume this week, if we can get that to load. Yeah, I mean, most of the week below 20 million shares, definitely not the volume that we were seeing a couple weeks back. When Elon had first started selling his shares. So we'll see if we get any more form pores tonight we did get some yesterday. We'll hop into that. So yesterday, Elon, again, continuing to exercise and self shares as part of those exercises. He exercised 2.1 million shares as he's been doing, sold 934,000 as he has been doing. And of course, these are the pre predetermined sales plans I know that small on the screen. But predetermined sales plans from back in September. So if we look at a quick update on our tracking table, Elon is now at 11 million shares, sold in total. He's ended up exercising. So acquiring almost 13 million shares, so net net, he's up about 1.8 million shares, but of course, has had to pay tax on these 11 million shares that he has sold. Or sorry. He has used those to cover taxes. And then some additional to raise some capital for himself as well. So if we assume that Elon is going to sell 17 million, that's about 10% of the shares that he has already had and exercised, but he does still have some more shares outside of that. So he's going to end up selling somewhere between 17 and 25 million long and short of it. If we assume the lower, he's 65% of the way, if we assume the higher, 44% of the way. And then looking at the 2012 CEO performance award, Elon's got about 10 million shares of that, remaining to be exercised. And of course, he's been doing that in 2 million share lots. So he's got about four and a half to 5 of those lots left. And that'll be another additional 4 million shares sold. So between the two, he's only going to be at 15.4, so he will have to sell a little bit more discretionary..

"North america. Right where if in two years north america is seventy percent of the hash rate than. We've got the same problem. We had went in. China was seventy percent of trade. So i'm i'm very focused on making sure it stays decentralized throughout the world right so we've set up businesses in iceland norway and sweden trying to help grow those ecosystems out And we're looking at other parts of the world to to continue to do that I do think that the the pool business will definitely decentralized so that so that china won't you know have the top ten spots right. i know You know we're working very hard to make. Sure there's at least one pool in north america the top five and and i think there there will be several other pools in north america over the next twelve months. Ethan same question that you ever see. A scenario the us us bulls just basically replaced. The role chinese bulls have had historically in terms of how much the represent some of the chinese pools are still very well positioned Especially the ones like an pulu. South that are loosely. I guess i don't know to what degree they're self with. Let's say they are. They're still obviously very well positioned because main is still kind of the centerpiece of this industry. And they've done a really good job at coming over to the us during this move so There are certain pools like that and maybe like finance bull for example that so many people use their exchange that are still well positioned now Those exchanges could go through some regulatory issues in which case they may run into trouble. I think you covered the o k ex school very well So that could happen. Some of the other exchange wills But yeah other than that. I think the rest of the pools are kind of legacy at this point. I don't see the real value prop of of some other chinese nine pools if they don't play that pivotal role in the industry. And so in that kind of You know the viewpoint. I think there should be a lot of a new entrance into the space and majority of which will be north american pools. I guess another take. I don't know if people were recording these down. But also a south american riding pools in the top fifteen by twenty twenty four I don't know if that's Prediction but i think at least be one an- and hopefully maybe they'll be a european pool too. But i mean i generally agree with Your guys just takes her here that one. You're listening out there dr. Minors gonna go up dr minor. Let's do it twenty twenty three one. I love it So last question for you guys obviously pass rate crash and sort of bounce here has been a big topic some headlines. Obviously we all pretty regularly watch hash rate given what you So last prediction is like. How long do you think until see new all-time highs from from bitcoin cash looking at it before the end of the calendar year here Or sometime You know into next year. Maybe mid to Next year even oregon even beyond that. If you're super bearish on ashtray. But what what's i'm line. You guys look ethan. I'll i'll just pass it back to you. And then mike for sure. I'm honestly surprised. At how hatchery. It's been coming back online. This checking by by screen the other day one hundred thirty exa hash I thought we would have been closer. Like one fifteen at this point. So i've had a few wrong predictions in the past two months on It would come back on line. Some of the be wrong again here But i think we'll we'll hit all-time highs by end of january next year. Same question you when you think. Cash rates can recover fully. I guess so there's a couple So i think i was. I don't know if it was this. It was last week. I did Pumps live stream thing and he hit me with question was not. I was not ready for it. And i think said to twenty two twenty by the end of the year which publish a little aggressive but Definitely first quarter next year will be a to twenty. I think part of what we're going to see is some chinese miners are gonna turn some stuff in china. I think we saw that over the last month than probably continue to see a little bit of that sneak back in they call it the gray market Over there now so. It's not like i think if you pay off the rape people you can still mind So we're going to see some of that asteroid come on and then it's gonna be all about execution with the big north american minor of. How fast can they build out capacity but the machines are no longer bottlenecks. So it's just it's more. We're going to plug them in. That's that's about so yeah. It's it's kind of funny watching that dynamic unfold where machines were a little bit of a bottleneck there especially i guess in particular from distributors in now. Almost everything except machines are the bottlenecks in a points. Here while guys were at time Thank you so much for coming on this stream. It's been a ton of fun and also educational for me personally and i'm pretty sure for our viewers as well Will often on the stream. This has been probably one of the most.

You know this is back in two thousand nineteen. I was like That'll be big news if they actually are serious about it and You know berry looked at it and said he'd avoided the mining space for years. Basically said you know it was very difficult to navigate. There's a lot of bad actors was tough to figure out. And he just felt like institutional money was coming to. Bitcoin and institutional money was going to come into bitcoin. Mining and these these new entrance. We're going to need some trusted players and people to help guide them through the process and Basically said hey. Here's a white sheet of paper Figure out where dc g. can add value right. How do we leverage our balance sheet are bran are subsidiary. Companies are portfolio companies. And where can we help out. Mining in north america and That's that's kind of the you know the the origination story of a foundry and then it's just been a wild ride for the last twenty four months that's awesome. I guess when barry picks up the phone you answer now regardless of about the oscars. Yeah yeah that's absolutely and now it's an incredible incredible. He's incredible guy. He knows the space very well and has done a lot to move. The industry forward suspend. It's been great being part of dc has for sure. There's absolutely no doubt about that. And today i forget the exact ranking you guys are often around a bit there but foundries top five or at least almost top-five worldwide by blocks and rate. Yeah we we loved. Always point out you know in a twenty four hour period when we get a little extra lucky we jumped way up in the rankings. But you know you look at a kind of a longer term perspective. Were sitting right around number seven or so and we're kind of like knocking on the door of number six number five. Which i think will happen over the next Month or so But in our view is that you really can't survive the pool business long term. Unless you're one of the top five fools the variation with lock and the deep pockets required to to actually pull this off is is pretty steep and it's a tough. It's it's actually not a very good business at all. But we view it super for the ecosystem that there's a a trusted transparent pool for North american miners for sure. Kind of on that note. Ethan i wanna handed to you besides besides the pool foundry an looks both. Do you know a few different things. can you like intro lahser. I think almost all of our audience also knows y'all because many of our miners mined through y'all But just tell us where looks came from and and at y guessing where you guys have grown to today shirt. So sorry for the internet connectivity issues there i also wanted to take a break from wills like ej on that. Is that you on the turntables. That is me on turntables. Spinning it up for us here compass. Yes so a bit of background on myself Been in the mining space for about the same time as mike Coming up on four years now. We started up in august. Twenty seventeen If you look the mining pool landscape back then it looks. It looked quite drastically different than than what it does now. the mining pools kind of operated in the shadows. You don't actually know who ran the pool. There wasn't a face to the operation. You couldn't pick up the phone. Call your pool provider They didn't speak on panels at conferences. And so we wanted to provide a mining pool service to both institutional and retail minors. That was kind of catered towards. I guess the north american market but also just like adding transparency and that kind of face to to the operations and so over the past four years. We've launched seventeen different ninety. Google's bitcoin being one of them An a primary focus moving forward but we've operated across different All.

"How severe the demonization of excellence lenses. The fact that a dozen countries in the world can still have these laws and there isn't any public uprising. Imagine if in the united states or in a western countries we had the death penalty for any kind of Any kind of group Face tradition group. How insane that would be. That's something we can't even imagine happening in the west anymore given how we feel about religious tolerance in religious freedom these general. Let's accept all religions. Let's be tolerant. These sorts of frameworks aren't really accepted in the muslim world. Still and this is why apostates even if they're in the west even if their communities have immigrated to the west they still face. Quite a bit of stigma of abuse of intolerance. Let's talk about the levers right since. We're doing the apostate report giving you the reasons that they left sarah. I tried to read the koran. Try all is great. Great isola alez great and then. There's all the crazy shit and you know like the sperm that's harvested from between the ribcage and Mountains being the nails that hold the planet together and You know mohamed marrying the six year old and having sex. Not i mean i just couldn't i just couldn't tell me there are people right who finally went back and actually honestly objectively read the koran and listed. That is one of the reasons. They walked away or did they. Yeah so we asked them several questions about what is the primary motivator or what was a motivator in the out of those. What is the primary motivator for why they left the faith and we asked them whether it was internal contradictions within the scripture. So crohn's has one thing chapter one and then crohn's is another thing chapter ten whether it was that and to what degree we ask them whether it was contradictions with what the krahn was saying about the nature of reality in what we knew to be scientific truths about the nature of reality about our world whether it was philosophical problems. In by that. I mean the problem of evil. You know the kinds of things that would make you an atheist because maybe the idea of omnipresent omniscient god who is also good doesn't really logically hold. We also asked him whether it was islamic relation to human rights ideal secular human rights ideals whether that was what pushed him out of the faith and you know it was interesting because so many people found that those sorts of things were important we also asked them whether it was non religious reasons for example feeling disconnected from the muslim communities anti muslim bigotry or experiences of being a muslim in the west weather. Those had something to do with it. And i'm not surprised but some people may be surprised to find that that ladder had almost nothing to do with it. Had very few people cited those as reasons that they left the faith in track for most people. That were what. I would call ideological reasons those philosophical reasons those contradictions within the scriptures themselves. In the fact that in human rights doesn't really Our modern consensus of what human rights is doesn't really comport with what the koran thinks. Human rights are a lot of people found those to be very disturbing and said so in our survey talking here with sarah hater. Co-founder of ex. Muslims of north america were speaking specifically about kind of targeted analysis of the moslem. I was watching on. Was it instagram. This was a few weeks back. When all of a sudden they had sort of wiped the hashtag ex-moslem like i wouldn't appear if you had typed in hashtag ex-muslim that they consider it hate speech or something and i guess it was the sort of off the radar for series of days until there was protests. Did you follow that story. sara. I'm koerfer lee aware of what's going on. This has been for many years now. We've had quite a bit of trouble with social media companies. Who don't understand ex muslims. Don't understand what we're going. Cereal don't seem to be very empathetic either. And we're facing you know. We are small population x missiles or very small. We are dwarfed by muslims. As a whole and it's very easy on social media platforms for targeted harassment. To take place and dr apostates austin medium. I what i mean by that. For example. it's very simple thing. You can do on facebook as you can just mass report a facebook group or a page or in individual day that they are violating the terms of service for whatever reason and the way facebook works because they don't have manual review for everything they'll just if if enough people report something they'll just block it. They'll just get rid of it. And that leaves excellence in a vulnerable position because if we get enough coverage if we get enough of a spotlight on us by reason of course you want to to some degree right you wanna be able to speak your mind and you wanna be heard but if you heard by too. Many people too many religious people. It's easy for them to target you. And to take you down given the vulnerabilities in social media platforms to abuse in the case of this banning of the ex-muslim muslim hash. I from what i understand it was. There were too many community reports. Is that rights as if there were too many community reports saying that the content on that tag is violating the terms of service. This is a very common tactic. How can you buy the term of service by being demographic of former believers in a religion. I mean if they did it with x. christian we'd flip out you know right so you know you talk about consequences though. Consequences are one of the reasons. Many people are hesitant to leave at least announce. They've left islam. Societal familial financial maybe even.

"Thank you so much for listening my friends. There is a link to the video version of this conversation. That youtube link is in the description box so the show my friend sarah. Hater is a next muslim and she is co founder of ex. Muslims north america. She joins me here. Because there's something very special that ex. Muslims of north america has been a part of. It's called the apostate report. We'll talk a lot about the x. muslim but you have and you have a survey of some kind. Or how would you describe the apostate report yes to the report is the findings from a survey we conducted of our support community members. Who are ex. Muslims from north america candidate in the united states on these are people who have been vetted by us so to speak. There's been a part of our communities for some time. There were interviewed to have access to our community. So we we. It's not so much it's not the way in anonymous internet survey works. It's kind of very specific sample. That it's an interesting one. And i think the findings from our survey are fascinating. I mean i think they're fascinating. I think i think other people will think that to and when we conducted the survey you know i was looking at. What kind of information is there out there about. Xm crime data. we haven't immune. There's really nothing for the longest time ex. Muslims were completely hidden population for. I think obvious reasons reasons should be obvious to your audience. But in case people don't know they're still an extreme stigma against apostasy against leaving islam leaving religion in many countries around the world this will majority countries apostasy still carries a death sentence which is pretty extreme and. I don't think that there's a parallel to it in any other mainstream religion so because of that extra muslims have been very much an underground population but in the past couple of years. We've been coming out of the closet so to speak and the second. I realized that we had access to this population throughout communities. That probably no one has ever had. We asked them all kinds of question. We ask them about why they left the fate their drivers of apostasy we call them. We asked him the experiences afterwards. What kinds of reactions. They had from families Friends whether they experience any kind of abuse and to what degree we ask them who they hid from which was really interesting because it we found that people tended to hide from their family more than they tended to hide from others from friends or from people like from the broader outside world. We also asked him alive demographic questions just general questions about you know their age their sex. We found that ex. Muslims are slightly more male than female. That's corresponds well with what we know about eighty. In general we found that excesses are highly. Highly highly educated. Actually it was pretty. That was a pretty shocking. Finding in there for us. So the apostate in islam. Especially your north america. Do we have to worry about honor. Killings physical retribution more so than you would with christianity certainly more so than you would christianity. I think that's That's hard to deny to leading question. We already going. But i mean it's interesting people will often ask me. Do you think. Islam is the single most dangerous religion in the world. And you know you can find pockets where different religions or doing immense damage. But as i look at the whole i mean we look at these thirteen nations who have a death penalty for apostasy. we look at jihad blasphemy. Laws those types of things. Islam just seems for me to be at the top of that list. Do you even go there. Sara what's your perspective fund at least fundamental islam as far as mainstream religions are concerning. Islam is a a huge religion. It has enormous amount of adherence at comparable to christianity. Judaism in comparison is quite small in terms of pure numbers. And i think that there's no doubt that the specific challenges that islam poses to the world to muslims in particular to nana slams in the sense in in how interact with each other. These challenges are unique and they are in some ways far more difficult than maybe what. Christianity poses part of that might be just because islamism younger religion and it has yet to be declawed so to speak in the way that christianity has with centuries of secularism in science in modernity pushing at the back at it again and again and again and perhaps that's what needs and perhaps that is what will change islam and bring it a little bit closer to the slightly tamer. Christianity we practice the jolo seen flavor of the sort of whitewashed. Happy clapping not necessarily fundamentalist. The bible's partly metaphor and some of the doesn't count kind of christianity. You try that in the middle ages right and they strap you to spike and they burn you alive kind of thing and i think you're a heretic. Think that joel's alstine right. The other mega say that he's a he's a he's a heretic. Of course they would have said that a few hundred years ago. People talk about like when i was in christianity. We would talk about. No muslims like one thing. Which is monumentally naive. Like oh a muslim thinks this or a muslim practices this and of course looking christianity schleicher. You've got the funding the peop- bible literalist you know. The calvin est people who were no predestination people in the literal heaven and hell than the literal. Have adam and eve people. And you've got these other people on the other end of the spectrum. And they think i think jesus was a good guy i think i believe in monomeric about but i'm a christian and then you've got this wide spectrum of people in between and it's interesting i think because you have been revealing this wide spectrum within islam right you've got people who are hard core and other people here might be cultural muslims. I don't know you can speak to that better than i can. So i mean the challenge. Think anytime you're looking at a population this huge when we're talking about muslims in general is as you said how do you look at the whole and be able to accurately speak to in general terms tendencies so that we can address them without erasing the diversity within the population. Which of course. There is a lot of but i think that we can say something's generally and i think one of the things that i feel comfortable saying is that islam as its practice. Today is far less tolerant religion than many other mainstream religions out there. I think maybe all of the other mainstream religions out there. It is especially intolerant to the people who lead it. That is something. Very unique in islam- the death penalty for apostates. I don't know if there are many parallels to that in other fates in modern times so end. This is something that even. If an average apostate isn't facing directly maybe they're they're in a north american prostate. They're not really facing it. A state pressure it reveals a kind of how deep the stigma is. How severe the demonization of excellence lenses. The fact that a dozen countries in the world can still have these laws and there isn't any public uprising. Imagine if in the.

Chinese students in australia effacing abuse and harassment from their fellow chinese students in the classroom. Some say they don't feel they can speak up about it. So our ustralian knees and al government doing enough to keep these students safe. Ahmed yousef has the story dumping policy. Something we do all the deputy.

And that would be oh fact compliant. What we quickly learned however was that the financial institutions weren't willing to pay extra for that bitcoin. So it's kind of like saying all. Bitcoin really are the same. But we'd like to be able to say this is the financial institutions that the bitcoin. We buy our sustainably mind and that they're fully compliant but if they're not willing to pay for that there's no reason to do it and so we then reversed our stance Quite publicly on memorial day weekend. I put out a video saying we're going back to the vanilla node. We're going to develop and mind. Bitcoin just like everybody else. The exact same. Bitcoin no different and yes. We hold all our bitcoin on our balance sheet. And you were somebody to come along and sale pay extra for bitcoin. That hasn't been put in any other wallets. I don't think that's going to happen anytime soon. But you know that could happen on the future. But i think really. The community believes in the fungibility of bitcoin. All bitcoin the same. I'm a believer in that as well. I think that the the financial institutions from a regulatory perspective need to answer to their investors and to the regulators. And i think that's all going to sort itself out. I think the miners are going to become more transparent about. Efg we're gonna to become more transparent about what our commitments you know. We've already made a commitment that You know our next deployment of seventy thousand miners will be fully carbon-neutral and we'll take the existing fleet that we have make that carbon-neutral over the course of next year the will be one hundred percent carbon neutral and you know we'll be tracked and held accountable to that by the public markets over the course of the next year and then i think it's really going to be a question of how the market develops with what sort of financial instruments people develop a fund for example.

So marathon is one of the largest. Bitcoin miners in north america. What did you do before you on the board and then became the see you so twenty. Five plus years running technology companies across a variety of sectors. Fintech was a big one. Matter of fact my first programming job was at a bank so grew up really understanding the friction. The financial markets was had the good fortune taking some companies public. Doing a lot of a and then switch to the dark side became a private equity managing partner and did leveraged buyouts tech companies and then started advising really large funds and tech companies. I had known the ceo. Marathon merrick former ceo now executive chairman for many years socially or kids grew up together and i joined the board in two thousand eighteen. Really that help him with kind of the transition to bitcoin. Mining and blockchain always been fascinated by blockchain. I think it's a great leveler. If you look at kind of how the internet developed and brought kind of the democratization of information i think people exposing data on the blockchain is going to change. How businesses operate imagine companies like salesforce. Who effectively hold your crm data hostage. If all that data around the block chain not only could use salesforce taxes and gained benefit from it. But you could use other applications. I think there's just a were so early in this blockchain development. Bitcoin cryptocurrencies. Just one part of it. I'm a big believer in the bitcoin. Blockchain foundation for financial institutions very secure fully decentralized network. You know you can say other things about ethier. Money has some great benefits. But it's still is less decentralized than the bitcoin blockchain and there's just so much you can do so. I was very excited at the opportunity to step into more of an operating a marathon. And i think now's the time where you'll see. The miners become more professional. Companies were real enterprises. If you just look at the build out plans most of us have you know. We'll be billion dollar revenue companies within the next year and a half to two years and those become big companies and they need to be run in a proper way with good

Uh, I love the jokes, but realistically, we know The odds are in the Jets in the Dolphins favor. This will be a story that we will have tea here for weeks. Probably hear it months leading up to the draft. We gotta wait till the league year starts. We gotta get passed through the Super Bowl. There's so much that has to happen. So prepare yourselves. Now. That's enough about the disastrous Franchise. That's enough about the laughing stock. In Texas. That's enough about Houston right now. We are. I don't know what 10 days away, depending on where you live nine days away at this point From the Super Bowl. I just told you Super Bowl 55. It's right around the corner. I wish we didn't have to deal with all of this nonsense. And, you know, fake Pro Bowl this video game that lets the screw it. Come on. These teams are getting ready to play the game. These teams are going through the process. Hopefully, Tom Brady has his plan laid out and he's telling Bruce Arians. Hey, just relax. I got this. Andy Reid and Patrick Mahomes. There in the lab, trying to figure out how they wanna keep Patrick my home standing upright. Against that Tampa Bay Buccaneers pass rush. And there's a There's a lot to figure out. There's a lot to discuss. As we said earlier this week could we have asked for a better Super Bowl? You got the young guy versus the old guy. You have the establish old guy versus the upstart, not just an upstart that Patrick my homes. He's a prodigy. OK, easy as close to a football prodigy as you could get. He's like the little kid that's like three years old playing the piano and not Hitting the keys and plan chopsticks. Kid is Beethoven. What a football! Okay. So that puts us in a position with all of the story lines and all of the opportunities and all of the different ways that this game can go. The big names here. Yeah. It's Tom Brady. It's Patrick Mahomes. But We also have the coaches. The coaches have their own unique stories we can talk about, you know who's facing the most pressure? Who has the most to prove we can go through that process. But you can't ignore the coaches. Andy Reid just got over the hump. Andy Reid also has to feel like someone who has hit the jackpot. Last night, I gave you my top six quarterbacks to never have won a Super Bowl. One of the men that led the charge for the Philadelphia Eagles along right there with Andy Reid was Donovan McNabb. And when Donovan McNabb did get to the Super Bowl, Yeah, I got a three touchdowns, three interceptions and, you know one projectile vomit. And Andy Reid has had to carry that around for years, even though he's been one of the best coaches holding it down for 22 years. In Philadelphia. He had a 1% of like 58. Hear what Kansas City combined with Alex Smith and an obviously now with Patrick Mahomes. This guy has a winning percentage of 71%. He's been there for, like, eight years now. Lost that Super Bowl. I told you what McNabb and finally got over the hump last year with someone who looks like he's going to be already talent wise for the short amount of time that he's been around one of the best quarterbacks ever. If I'm Andy Reid, I take a drink after every game and just be happy. I got Patrick my homes. So if I'm thinking about who has the most approved, let's let's boil this down. Who the hell has the most approving a Super Bowl? Is it? Andy Reid? No. Andy Reid is going into the Hall of Fame. Andy Reid. Is amongst names like Shula. Palace. Landry. Lambo. Bella check. He is right there with those names. Is about the past curly Lambeau. Fifth all time and wins and he has a Super Bowl and he's probably gonna have more Super Bowls. Andy Reid 22 years as a head coach, he has nothing to prove. You want to look at a quarterback? Look at his quarterback Patrick Mahomes. What is Patrick Mahomes have to prove We know was talent level. Go ask Tom Brady. You can't go out there and when I'm all sometimes you have to lose. Damn it! You may not get there. 10 Times. Sometimes you gotta lose. Sometimes you won't even go. But all things considered. If he's healthy, he's gonna be back quite a few times. Maybe Aaron Rodgers might disagree, but I think Patrick. My home's think the odds are in his favor. That at his age Hey, has a few more headroom. Nothing here for him to prove, but I'm the man. And Tom Brady. You're not anymore. Go away. Then you have Wouldn't Brady have the most approved? Isn't his.
