A highlight from Bitcoin Lightning Network is BROKEN! w/ Paul Sztorc | BTC Layer-Two's Ranked

"This is going to be a good one. My name is Paul Baer. We'll come back in the Tech Path. What we're going to try to do is line up what's happening within the ecosystem of Bitcoin. Obviously, Bitcoin is flying right now with some news, albeit the fake news on ETF. But at the same time, we'll see a lot happening from the macro perspective. And you know that's kind of what we cover here on the channel a lot. But we wanted to dive into the complexities of what's happening inside Bitcoin as a platform. And I think that's the thing that a lot of people lose track of is, can Bitcoin be used for payments? And if so, what would you use? I want to go to a clip that shows our guest today talking at the Bitcoin conference to some of the developers within the Lightning Network to kind of frame it in the sense of whether or not Lightning could be used. And if you look at this conversation, he pretty much the destroys issue of what Lightning is standing for. And this is why I think it's important. So let's go to this first clip. They said that if they could get a 1 % or 5 % boost to revenue by adopting drive chains, they would do it in a second. But the problem is - It won't be 1%. It would be 10x, 100x, or even 1 ,000x. Hang on. Let's be clear, though. There is a misconception there. I asked you what the problem with this idea was. You just said that you mixed up L1 and L2, and you said that I don't like miners having control over the L2 withdrawals, even though they already have control over the Lightning Network justice transaction. So it's exactly the same thing. Well, again - We're in this weird odyssey on miner costs. Merge mining the side chain is essentially free. Hey, hey, hey. They don't even need their own node. They can just - That's just categorically false. No, they give 51%. The hash rate can censor the justice transaction. The problem with Lightning, though, of course, is that even the proponents don't expect 8 billion people to be able to use it. Whereas with this, they could. So that's a pretty big difference. The tech people don't agree with you on that. This is a silly discussion. Go read the blog post I just posted. You may not care about a certain thing, like the EVM or something, but other people care about it. And you may not care about large blocks. This isn't about what other people like. It's about their ability to choose. All right. So, of course, that's Paul Stortz, who is the CEO of L2 Labs. And welcome, Paul Stortz, into the show today. Great to have you back. Hey, thanks for having me. All right. So, obviously, we showed a little bit from the Amsterdam Bitcoin Conference your engagement there with the Lightning teams and some of the developers out there. And this is some of the things that we've kind of talked about here on the channel in general. And when you look at what Lightning and what you're trying to do, Paul, with L2 Labs and sidechains, if you can kind of give our audience a breakdown of the inefficiencies of Lightning versus an alternative and what would that be? Yeah, I mean, I like the Lightning network, but what has happened was because of the scaling war, the Lightning network is like an idea that has collided with the Bitcoin culture and damaged it a lot. Because people in Bitcoin are very insecure about Bitcoin's future, they need to tell a story where Lightning is going to fix everything. And, you know, it might be true someday, but the current idea, the current version of the idea is not it's just not the case. So the Lightning idea is a good enough idea. The key insight of the Lightning network is it's kind of like a six degrees of Kevin Bacon or whatever it is where. So it's like maybe I have a channel with you and you have a channel with someone else. And so then maybe I can pay them through you. That's the idea of the Lightning network. And I think unfortunately, it's probably not going to work out for a couple of different reasons. But the bigger issue is that the Lightning network is like this meme that has collided with the Bitcoin community and everyone just people just start talking about it. And unfortunately, they stop being honest with themselves. It's out of my own concern for them that I started speaking up sort of against it. They're suffering, I think, psychologically, many of them. It's not quite as bad as something like Theranos or whatever. But it is like there's this big difference between what the marketing people say, the people on Twitter who don't use Lightning. They say a certain thing and then they're in the back room trying to make this the blood machine work. Right. The Lightning network history here over time. All the way back to 2021. You can kind of see it's a bit of a stale platform in the sense that we haven't seen a lot of growth within it. Obviously, some news here recently with some security concerns. Can you kind of explain the security concerns that were revealed by some of the developers in the market? Yes, I will explain that. But first, I like your graph and I want to point out something. The most important thing about the graph is something that hides in plain sight, which is that at maximum, it's only 5000 coins, basically. And there's 19 million coins. So this is like 0 .02 % or something. So we see where no one is. So it's very small. And then people try to make arguments about, oh, well, maybe there's a coin in there that turns over like millions of times a month. Blah, blah, blah. You know, that's a bunch of cobalt. So now to your second point, there was recently a vulnerability in Lightning. It can be fixed, but in order to fix it, the people, the current problematic people in Bitcoin, the bad people and the bad guys, they have to admit that they were wrong about something else. So it's unclear when these two malicious, we have saving Lightning and then we have admitting that we still need more soft fork op codes. Because the vulnerability is that you, someone, when thing the times out, it's still possible to use either of the two paths. So one person pulls the payment from you and the other person uses the timeout. And now the person in the middle is left having routed a payment, but they get nothing. I tried to get this idea popularized in like 2019, that the idea of channel risk, that who you open the channel with makes a big deal. But yeah, I think this is not a great bug. I wouldn't be routing any payments for anyone else personally until the bug is fixed. And looking at that. Yeah, I want to go to, because payments are a big part of this, I want to go to this next clip right here on Bitcoin payment potentials. Listen in. What do you think, Rene? Like, do you think that we can get to a point where even like the first attempt that someone makes that tries to make a payment should work? So I think that will hardly be possible without severely changing the protocol. So this is the way how the protocol is designed. So payment failures, or at least the failures of attempts, are built into the protocol. The question is, what can we do about this? Do we have suggestions on that? What you could do is you could basically say, well, if I have enough liquidity, let's do five of them concurrently and let's hope that statistically at least one arrives. But then the question is, if we do it in the current protocol, if two arrive, somebody could claim two payments and then you would overpay. You don't want to do that.

A highlight from Ep395: End Your Content Creation Struggles With These 4 AI Tools - Dino Cattaneo

"These tools are a lot more powerful, and as a matter of fact, a lot of the podcasting tools actually connect into the chat GPT engine to spit out the results. Most hosts never achieve the results they hoped for. They're falling short on listenership and monetization, meaning their message isn't being heard and their show ends up costing them money. This podcast was created to help you grow your listenership and make money while you're at it. Get ready to take notes. Here's your host, Adam Adams. What's up, podcaster? It's your host, Adam Adams. And about 70 -ish episodes ago, you guys had a really cool guy come on the podcast and you probably learned a lot from him. It's Dino Cattaneo, who was episode 331, basically talking about that your show needs to have goals and why does your show need to have goals? How do you track those? How do you track progress? We talked a little bit about that in episode 331. The link will be in the show notes. And guess what? There are some other links that are going to be in the show notes as well because today we're talking about AI, artificial intelligence. And Dino and I have been friends and connected for a while. He was a client for a short time as well, like a year and a half. I met him a couple of years ago at a conference and now we're hanging out again at this most recent conference. And while there, he was inspired by AI. And so there was a few different companies that were there. And I think he's also looked into other companies as well. And so what he's trying to figure out is how do we make our podcast easier? How do we make it more efficient? How do we make it just happen? And so he looked at Cap Show, podium, chat GBT and Memento. So all four of those links will be in the show notes as well. We're going to be talking about them now. Go back to episode 331 to learn more about Dino and which goals you need to have for your podcast, how to track it and why. And today we're talking about AI. Dino, how are you, my friend? I'm good, Adam. It's so good to see you. Very excited. We got to spend a lot of time together in Denver at the conference and it was very cool to be able to reconnect after two years and after all the work that we've done together. And yeah, so AI has been at the forefront for me in the past few months as it is for many podcasters and creative people. I think the world overall got a huge wake up of the course of the past year. It came into our life in a way that is maybe a little different. My wife is a songwriter and a songwriting professor. She taught for 20 years at Berklee College of Music. She left Berklee to fully dedicate her career to just the songwriting part, if you will, but is also teaching DevAster to stay to teach one of the online classes. And this class is a broader class on creative writing and they have assignments every week and they're writing assignments. And keep in mind, these are students who spend not a little amount of money to take a creative class to become better writers. And at some point, one of the students emailed my wife and told her that they felt that somebody else in the class was using chat GPT for the assignments. And it felt like a big betrayal in some ways. It felt like silly, if you will, on the part of somebody who's making that huge investment to become a better writer and then they're not really doing the work, which is how you become a writer. But it also sparked a big conversation for me, her and some of her songwriters and friends around what is an ethical use of AI, you know, as a creator. And on the other side, aside from being a podcaster and an executive coach, I'm a partner in a marketing agency and that's a conversation that we're having internally. What role is AI going to play for us? What is fair and what is not fair? What is the baseline that AI needs to set up for you if you're in the creativity business? And it turns out that this year, the conference had a really big series of tracks around AI. And I want to give another shout out, I think, to Culture & Code who was present at the conference and did a fabulous session the day before the conference started around the use of AI. Culture & Code also has a newsletter that talks about the use of AI and creativity. They're very sophisticated and they're one of the places where I go to learn myself. So if you're interested, it's cultureandcode, spelled U -R -E -A -N -D -C -O -D -E .io. And they have a thesis that John, who is the main person, used this parallel that really resonated with me. And he said that when people invented the camera and movies, they didn't invent them to just go do the theater and film a play, right? The fact that they had this new medium generated a whole series of additional creative uses where there was like the different angle cuts using special effects, et cetera. And his underlying theory, which I subscribe to to a certain extent, is that AI will do the same for creativity. We will get to a point where AI will be a tool that we use and will generate new level of creativity. There's other, I think, bigger issues because the reality is that AI eliminates a lot of the manual labor that goes into creative work. And there's certainly uses, if I think about my other world, which is the marketing world, if you think about when you're writing really tactical copy for acquisition creative, get an offer of 5%, get an offer of 10%. And you're testing it. And that, by the way, there was in that world, the using of data and simulated AI, even though it's not real AI, the use of data driven automation to optimize, to swap taxes already in place. But that's definitely a consideration. And someone else recently wrote about this is Rand Fishkin, founder of SparkToro, maybe known to your listeners more as one of the top four or five authority on SEO from the mid -2000s to now when he was working with Moz. And he said that basically what AI will do is replace the work of sort of the content factories that are just spitting out trite copy based on mechanical SEO rules. But what will never be replaced by AI is like the genuine great writing. So I came to the conference and I'm coming to you and your listeners, not as an expert, but as somebody who is smack in the middle of that journey, is trying to figure it out for himself, for a number of people that he works with. And I'm very happy to talk about the things that I discovered along the way. So let's do that. You looked into CapShow, Podium, Chad GPT and Memento. Well, my experimentation with AI started out probably a few months ago with Chad GPT. And Chad GPT has a free version, which is an older model. And then it has the paid version, which is the latest model. And they just announced an enterprise version. And then I also experimented just for fun for myself with MidJourney, which is an image generator. And so one thing I may butcher this, but one thing that made really clear what AI is to me and so that people can understand the term artificial intelligence in terms of what the technologies right now may be a little misleading, like AI is basically the of processing enormous amount of data, the finding relationships between these data, calculating probabilities. And so basically, if you think about you ask a question to AI, you give it a task. AI goes through all this data and sees what are the closest possible relationships and then spits out an answer. So I had that experience. I came to the conference. I tested CapShow because of Harry Duran from Fullcast, who told me he was using that. And actually, the second tool that I tried, which is Spodum, and I'll have some examples from them here. They were next to your booth. Oh, OK. Yeah, right next to me. Right next to you. And they were making the book. And so I tried that. There's another tool and I will have the name or I will send you the link before the episode if I don't manage to get the tool during the episode. That is a video tool. The reality overall is that this year AI is exploding and we're in a really, really early phase. And so you can go on Google and say text AI tools or best AI tools and you'll find a lot of tools. And one of the advantages of being in the phase right now is that everybody will have free trials. And so you can try the different tools and look at AI for podcasters, try the different tools and see what works for you. And in some ways, if you remember about 10 years ago when the social media management tools started coming out, right, Hootsuite, whatever the other tools were, you could get a subscription for $9 .99 because they were all in the land grab mode. They wanted to get customers. Now it's very hard to get a very good social media management tool for less than $49 .99. They've matured. The best tool have survived. A lot of tools have gone by the wayside. And AI is in that new frontier phase with the tools. Yeah. Another tool that I tried and I really like the CEO, David, is a tool called Memento and it's, I think, studio .memento .fm or memento .fm. And they found me actually in November of last year pitching me on LinkedIn because I had podcaster and so I was part of their beta Memento. The tool has evolved now. It's more sophisticated video editing tool. But at the time they took my episode, they basically just from the RSS feed and then they generated a transcription. They found like the five or six moments that they felt were most interesting in the episode. And then they gave me like five options of a video that has those moments already, different formatting, a tagline. So that's a lot of what the tools are doing now. Let me interrupt. I'm sensing what is the listener thinking right now? And I think they're like, well, what do each of these tools do? And if Dino's looked into them, how does he like them for that thing? So what does Capchio say that they do and how do you like them? What does Podium say that they do and how do you like them? Same thing with chat, GPT and Memento. What use do they have and for our listener who's a podcaster and like, is it good for that? What would you say if we went down that list? So the tools that you mentioned, Capchio, Podium, Memento, those are tools that are specifically targeted at podcasters. Chad GPT is one of the two or three dominant A .I. models like the BARD by Google. There's the one by Bing. And so what do you mean they're barred by Google? What is that? Google, they're basically an A .I. engine is one of the systems that have all the data and does the calculations and does the creative. So there's Chad GPT, which is from open A .I. is the one of the best known one. But Google has its own, which is called BARD, which you can join, which does similar things to Chad GPT. And then Bing has a tool. These tools are a lot more powerful. And as a matter of fact, a lot of the podcasting tools actually connect into the Chad GPT engine to spit out their results. But if you will, they put a layer on top of it. So I'm going to just stick to the podcasting tools and I'm going to talk about the use, which is the easiest, which is you have just recorded your episode. You need to do show notes. You want to create maybe social media posts from it. You want a transcription. You want to find the part that are more interesting. So all of these tools allow you to upload an episode. And then after a little bit of time, they give it to you. So I have tried that with Memento, as I mentioned in the past, when it was in the beta phase with CAPTCHA and with podium CAPTCHA. I found the interface very complicated in some ways. It doesn't give you the result immediately. It makes a transcription and then wants you to do edits. I tried the free version for two weeks and then it charged me when I went back this week to do the test with the episode that you and I were a part of. It had basically charged me, but it had erased my old files and I wasn't able to upload the file from our episode. So I can't speak to it. I don't want to be overly negative on the tool because I know that Harry Duran has been using it for a while and finds it very helpful. I probably didn't get enough time to figure out how it worked. But the reality is that when I tried podium, the output for me was a lot easier and faster to come through. So podium, you upload the episode and then it shoots two or three text files that you can download that have various things. So there's a highlights file, there's a show notes file, and then there's a transcription. And maybe something that may be helpful is I can go into the show notes from the episode that you and I did together episode 331 and just tell our listeners a little bit of the things that it said. Because to put that in context, imagine you're just dropping this into browser a and then about 10, 20 minutes later, you get all this out. So it starts with like episode keywords, podcasting, authentic leadership, listenership, content creation, refining questions, etc. Then it gives me title suggestions, exploring authentic leadership, meaningful content creation and client acquisition in podcasting. That's an example. This is the episode where you and I were talking about having goals, navigating the odyssey of podcasting, art of authentic leadership and content creation for podcasts, chasing success in podcasting through authenticity and creativity. The journey for authentic leadership to client acquisition in podcasts, mastering the art of podcasting, leadership content and client acquisition, exploring the power of authenticity and creativity in successful podcasting. So I will say real quick, I like a couple of those spit out maybe seven ideas, but I like a couple of them better than what my team ended up titling it. And that is the point. I think that this makes the heavy lifting faster because right now, if I have to come up with the title right now, instead of starting from scratch, I have the seven that I can look at. And none of them really works. But I can mix these two and create this one. And this is how I've been using it. I've done two episodes from my podcast, taking a look at the output from podium, and that's what I've been using it. What's really helpful is if I go, it gives me three different potential episode summaries with different flavors. Right. One says, prepare yourself for a journey into the heart of podcasting as we explore the heart of authentic leadership and help you navigate the path to success. This episode promises you the knowledge, the insights and the inspiration to grow your listenership, make money and stay true to your authenticity. Join me as I share my personal podcast journey ignited by the spark of Judy Fox and Rachel Cook evolving into an odyssey of regular content creation. Now, some of this is not really my voice, but re editing this or your voice for that matter, since it was your podcast. But re editing that podcast, right, we in the summary, creating maybe an intro. And then there's an alternative that says as you navigate the podcast world, hoping to make are you navigating the podcast world, hoping to make a mark? We've got insights from my own journey in this episode, right from the spark of inspiration from Judy Fox and Rachel Cook to regular content releases. So this is like a slightly different, more like I'm engaging the listener here. And another then alternative listening as we navigate the path of authentic leadership in podcasting, where most podcasters fall short of their goals. This episode takes you behind the scenes of my podcast journey, started from inspiration, blah, blah, blah. And they have I've read you the first paragraph from each example. Each one of the summaries is three paragraphs that I could take and probably get my notes done once again in a lot faster than it is. Right. And if you notice earlier, it talked about what were the main keywords, the keywords are put in the summaries in a way that would make sense for SEO. It does it. I love that. And I'm sorry that I'm cutting you off real quick. I'm very curious if it gives bullet points as well as the three paragraphs. So this is the summary episode chapters. So it comes up with four episode chapters, authentic leadership in podcasting, tips for creating meaningful podcasts and time, by the way. So it says twenty seven thirty finding the right clients being authentic. And then episode chapters with short key points. I just pick one in the middle. Thirty three fifty four. The importance of podcast editing, understand goals, determine resources, outsource podcast editing, invest in a professional editor for best listener experience, and then it has full summaries where you get a full paragraph. So if we go to the same point, important about editing, we explore the importance of understanding your goals for your podcast. And now this can help determine the amount of time and resources you're willing to commit to it. We learn why Dino Cattaneo chooses to outsource podcast editing and the cost of doing so. We also discover the value of investing in a professional editor in order to provide the best experience for your listeners. This is a very legit one paragraph summary of that part of the episode. Yeah, I like it. And as I said, and I love also that it leaves some of it up to the imagination. Like it's very good at not just giving the answer, but telling you what to listen for. Exactly. I think what you need to remember is that what we talked about, AI is really a statistical analysis of relationships and probabilities, right? So they transcribe the episode. They went through it and figure out like the most probable combination of how someone would use it is this. It doesn't have a voice right now, meaning a creative voice. So it's a little mechanical, but it allows you to just put in the time that you need to make it in your voice to make it more authentic to you. And it has all the information and the facts already collected for you. Yeah, it's really cool. So you mentioned earlier there was Cap Show. You said it was the interface was a little bit challenging for you. Yeah. It just wasn't more complicated than, for example, podium. The difference is that Cap Show, you need to walk through all the steps to create all the different things and give it direction. So in some ways, it's probably once you learn it, it's more powerful. Well, 100 percent on the fact that I did not invest the time into learning it. On the other side, the fact that my two episodes are gone and that yesterday I could not upload the episode, that's a technical fail. And then if you are all these tools, as I said, collect your episode and run it through an AI model. A lot of them use Chad GPT, but Chad GPT in itself is a very powerful tool for bigger content creation. So because AI is a statistical tool, the key thing is the prompt, right? You give the prompt, you tell AI, OK, create this for me. So write this for me for this audience in the voice of. So in Chad GPT, for instance, you can upload a bunch of pages of your writing and then say, this is the style of my writing. And so you can say, write a summary of this article in my voice. And then that's where you start getting into the more dark corners of the ethics, if you will, because technically I could go on GPT and say on Chad GPT and say, write a novel in the voice of Henry James, a novel that talks about this plot in the voice of Henry James. Yeah, I want to understand between Cap Show, Podium and Memento, which of those would you suggest or recommend to a listener who wanted to maybe offload some of the show notes, support social media and transcriptions? So I would say this. As I said, Henry has been very successful using Cap Show, so I don't want to discount them. I'm really enjoying what Podium is doing for me. And I also have a little bit of a bias, because at the conference I did spend time with the two founders of Podium, and I really like them. And I tend to form relationship. Memento, I will say that if I had the time to invest in really learning the new updates that they've done in the video editing, Memento is incredibly powerful. Just to give you an example, when I was in the beta phase and I don't have a TikTok account, but I just want to see what happened. So I open a TikTok account and then I literally just posted five text and graphic videos that Memento made for me just from the audio of my episode. So I went in and chose a template like literally seven minutes of work. And the first one that I posted got seven hundred and fifty views on a TikTok account that had zero followers and zero. And the quality is really good. So I would say this. These are only two of the tools. I've been happy with Podium, but we are really in a phase where I would advise people to explore. And I want to also mention something that is somebody that is not in the podcast world, but who I've known for about 15 years from the music world, from my world, managing my wife as a singer songwriter. Her name is Ariel Hyatt. She has something that's called cyber PR, and she was way ahead of the curve on digital marketing for artists. And she was explaining how artists should do social media way back in 2010. And now she's been very much ahead of the curve on the AI thing. And I'm going to look for the link. She has a four hour online class on how to use AI as a musician. And what I really like about that class is that she really knows her audience and she knows that musicians do not want to learn AI to do marketing. They just want to get the basics that they need to make their life easier. So this class is very simple. It teaches you everything that you need to do. And she has a number of platforms on it that she recommends. And so I think it's maybe I don't remember how much it is to enroll, but it's not very expensive. And it's definitely a great, great. I'm going to actually give you put the link in there. It's a great way to quickly understand what's going on, start playing around with things, because another really big part of AI is in doing the graphics, social media graphics, images, et cetera. And I can really help with that, too. So here is the link to cyber music PR. That's the home page on the front page. There is a webinar that talks about AI. And then somewhere in there, there will be the class they have, you know, and she has like 100 percent. They have a freebie where you can get 100 plus chat GPT prompts, which is a good way to start understanding what prompts are, how they work, because an exercise that we did in the culture code class was to come up with podcast a title and a podcast video promo using chat GPT and a video editing software. And so I have somewhere here I can share sort of like the example of the problems that you would give with judge GPT that kind of gives you an idea of how that works. And here I want to give credit once again to culture and code and the seminar they did. The three ingredients of a good prompt in chat GPT or in any AI tool is the goal. So what do you want to do the format? How do you want the output? And then has specific requests, you know, word count, include, exclude keywords, et cetera. So being example, this is how we did a podcast title. And this would be a persona. So act like a fiction podcast screenwriter. Write a five to seven words title for detective. So give me five, three word title options for a detective noir podcast that takes place in a small town in Louisiana. The audience are young adult females who like the Twilight book series. So as you can see, like when you're talking about creating things in AI, the details are really important. So I could go to chat GPT, which is just a general and say, you know, write me 10 tweets based on the transcript from my podcast that talks about leadership and practical steps to be a better leader and write them for Twitter, for an audience of senior executives. And so chat GPT would generate the tweets. Yeah, cool. And then you can take them and edit them. Yeah. And if you think about it, that's what what we were talking about. Rand was saying that it will take away the content factories. Right. Right now, when you hire one of these low cost services that are creating content for you, somebody is going and writing those 20 tweets. And it's instead you're using a tool. Yeah, I like it. Well, let's wrap it up real fast here. I've got a couple of links that are in the show notes. First and foremost, the link to episode 331 with Dino is in the show notes. Additionally, his coaching program, he is a business coach and the link to working with him is in the show notes as well. Any social media that Dino wanted you to have is down there. And then on top of that, links to Cap Show, Podium, Chat GPT and Memento are down there. And two other links that we will put in there. And it is cyber music dot com and PR music, cyber PR music dot com. And then the culture and code dot IO, that link will also be in the show notes. That way, anything that we talked about, you can easily find. So just scroll down. You can check that out and then just be able to find Dino wherever he is, wherever he is shared. Those links are down in the show notes already. And Dino will probably bring you back on. But this was fun. Like it was we'll call it more insightful because it's like I've been afraid of AI, not to the effect that I think it's going to take jobs and destroy the world. Although that might be true. I've been afraid of AI to the effect of like I don't know if I want to take that, be that pioneer, take the first step and learn it from scratch. So it's been really helpful to have your experience as you've been working with it prior to that conference and since that conference to be working with different ones and be able to share what they do. And there's a piece of feedback that I think is important for the listener. And that is at the end of this episode, the thing that you ought to be doing with AI is exploring different AI tools, not necessarily just going and picking the ones that we've shared here today, but exploring and seeing what they do, how they work, how the interface works for you and for your goals and the way that you work, which ones are complicated for you and easy for you. But with that said, CapShow is one that's really well known in the podcast space. I'm friends with the owner. And additionally, a lot of people say that they like it. Podium easier sounds to use and faster, and you don't have to figure out as much. And Memento is especially good for things like video podcasts and creating TikToks as well. Just with Instagram, real TikToks. Yes. Yeah, it's pretty fun. So all those links are down in the show notes. And you can also follow Dino there as well. This was a little bit longer episode, but the next episode is quite short. It is a solo episode that I queued up just for you who's listening with some information that I know that you need. And that's the next episode. So I would just jump over there. I'll see you on that episode.

A highlight from Thoughts from the Bear Market - Episode 700!

"Time can move very slowly when you're in a bear market. Watching your crypto and NFT value drop can be a depressing experience. Well, we've survived one bear market and appears that we're going to make it through another. Today, your favorite crypto clowns take a look at where we've been, what we've learned along the way and discuss where we think this all might be going. So be of good cheer. We believe the bull is almost here. Let's talk financial mammals and have some fun as we give you our thoughts from inside the bear market on episode number, get this, 700 of the Bad Crypto Podcast. Okay, the Bad Crypto Podcast. Yeah, we get it hype. Talking Bitcoin with Joel, Common, Travis, right? Yeah. Digital money and blockchain keep you informed and entertained. Make you think, make you laugh. But remember, stay bad with the Bad Crypto Podcast. Let's go. This is the big seven zero zero live from the Republic of Bad Cryptopia. Well, recorded, but we're live as we're doing it. Wait, wait, let me check my polls. Yeah, I'm live. Trav, you live? I'm still alive. We're like the two live crew. Two live crew, yeah. Who has tuned in and heard some of those along the way. And just as a quick recap, Joel, when we started the show, right, we started the show in July, let's say the closest timeframe that we have is like, it looks like July 16 is when we started the show. And the total crypto market cap at that time was $80 billion. That was the total volume right there. So that's a historic time. And now here we are now with it like almost 1 .1 trillion. So we've gone up over about what, almost 15X since, you know, here we are since starting to show six years ago. It was all on us. Yeah. Us and Ben Armstrong. We did it all. And a little bit of Michael Saylor, not much, but some. And, you know, we've seen this thing almost, didn't we see it over 2 trillion? Wasn't like 2 .7 trillion? We saw it over 3. 3 trillion. My God. Yeah. I'm going to pull up CoinGecko in a minute. We'll take a look at that. Looks like we're in for about another run here. It should be interesting to see. Over 10 ,000 coins now, Joel. That's crazy. And those are just the ones that are being tracked by CoinGecko. I guarantee there's at least that many more that aren't being tracked and who knows. You know, we're just going a little conversation today. Talk about some of the things that we've learned, but let's, let's go ahead and historically take a look at the crypto market. Those of you that are listening, that's fine. If you want to see what we're talking about here, we've got some visuals. You could check out either YouTube rumble or on Odyssey. This is the total crypto market cap that you were talking about right here, Trav. And in 2018, at the top of the market, the crypto market cap got to 812 billion, right up from 2017, about 80 billion. And then I thought then Joel, then I might go, my thought was we're going to hit a trillion. And that was probably going to be the top of that first one. That's why, but then what was so crazy about that one to me, Joe, if you actually even zoom in on that one, is that bull market was so that bear market was so harsh because what ended up happening was it hit the high and then boom, that it tanked right after that, like you go in and look at that thing because he's even scrolling over a little bit, January of 2020, 2018, it just went, it was down 40 % before you know it. And then I know that I got invited to speak at this coins bank cruise that went from Singapore to Malaysia, to Thailand, then back to Singapore. Then it was so crazy that when we initially started this thing, it was just so nuts because there weren't a lot of other podcasts. And so people were inviting us all over the place. We even got to go to Switzerland. So I literally was on the beach one day in Switzerland. The next day flying on the beach in Thailand, went to Singapore, flew to Switzerland. Next day, six feet of snow. Like it was insane. And then the market, it just tanked, dude. It went up and then boom, it was down 40 % before I could get back home to sell any cryptos. Right. It was rough, you know, which is, and now if we, if Sophie forward to 2021, this space right here, I'll just pick a 90 day or we'll go to the max, but I'll pick from 2020 through and 20 we'll say, that's fine. We'll go with 2021 and a coin gecko is not being supportive of me right now. I'm just going to do that. Shouldn't it be like, when you click on these things should like tell you exactly where, where you want it. Yeah. Okay. That's kind of what you do. So there, so there you go. There's a 2020. We got up to three bill three trillion and 50. Take that left one down there on the volume, move it over to the beginning of 2020, because you can see how Bitcoin tanked out in like March, like 3 ,000, 3 ,800 bucks or something. Bitcoin did. You can't really see that coin on this particular chart, but look at that run. It went, what was the market cap in say April of 20? A market cap was 190 billion. And then it went up to three trillion. And then it fell. So, you know, here's what I learned through to bull markets is if you want to take profits, you want to do it before the market crashes. And so it's easy to get caught up in the hype and the FOMO and it's going higher. It's going higher. You don't want to miss out on those profits as it's going up, but I try to peel off a little bit, just a little bit here, put some profit, put it in the bank. Because as I like to say, it never hurts to take profits. And I did that in a small way, 2017, 2018, really small. Because when it crashed, I really felt it. In 2021, 20 to 2021, I did a little better than I did the first time, but still not enough to make me say I learned my lesson the first time. And even worse for NFTs, right? Because we had, there was NFTs that I could have sold for 10, 20 ETH, you know, back at the boom that are now worth two or three.

Singapore Ben Armstrong TWO Switzerland Thailand 2018 Malaysia Michael Saylor 2017 July 16 July 3 ,000 190 Billion $80 Billion 2 .7 Trillion 10 JOE 3 ,800 Bucks 2021 Six Feet

Balancing Family Life With Retired L.A. County Firefighter Scott Woods

"I want to go back a little ways. We talked about your wife. You were in Academy before you met her. What happened when you added kids? Oh boy. When you add kids and as you go through your career, when you're young and you're single and you still have a lot of energy. So now you're, you're working more. I was a paramedic when I had kids. So you're working more, you're up more because you're busier being a paramedic. And now you throw kids on top of the mix when you come home. And you know, my wife, well, we had, we had two kids in diapers and so she's beat from being gone. I worked in overtime, so I've been gone for three days. I'm beat when I come home. I want to take a nap. I want to relax. And she's like this with the kids. There's gotta be a balance where, okay, I was gone for three days. I'm going to come home and I'm gonna take the kids for two hours. And then you got to give me a couple hours to get a break. Cause I know she's been doing her thing. So I would just come home and take the kids and just say, go. And that was it. Like go to the gym, go do what you want to do, go relax, go whatever. So I would take the kids. I would just tough it out through the morning. And then at noon lunchtime, she would take them back and then I would get my nap or do whatever I got to do. But we always had some type of arrangement and communication in there. And, and you know what, a lot of it, I learned from the other firemen like, Hey, you know what you've got three days. She's got, she has the kids at home and I'm like, huh? What? Oh, okay. And then I see it, you know, cause there's a guy, you don't realize, I don't, you don't realize those things. I wouldn't even think about it. Like I'll go home and take my three hour nap. And so I learned, you know, from the other guys, one of my old captains told me, Hey, stop and get her either flowers or a coffee. So every shift home, when I got off, I would get her coffee in the morning and I would come home with their coffee. And then, then there would be days where I would come home with her stuff and she'd be like, Hey, just go do your thing. They'll take a nap, go do what you got to do. And I'll be on with the kids. And then you can have them this afternoon. Perfect. So I really worked it out, but there was always a communication that, Hey, she needs some time. And I need some time, you know, in the beginning, she had a hard time with the station, not being worked like, Hey, you're gone having fun all day. And then you come and home you know, I'm working the whole time. Well, wait a minute. I know when you come to the station, it looks like we're always having fun, but we work a lot and we get up at night. So I didn't get eight hours of sleep last night. So there was an Adam Odyssey. She kind of held for a long time of, Hey, like, Hey, you get to go have fun. And then I'm with the kids and then you come home and then you want to rest or you want to go do something. So that was a little bit of a balance. And I think as the years went on and she realized how much we do work and how tired we are when we come home sometimes. And plus I had two girls, so they went off and do their girls things all day. I say, when I come back, I want to, I want to be a fireman's daughter. I love what you said, Scott, and it makes so much sense. And I think spouses get that notion that the firefighter goes to work and has all this fun and they get to do all these things. And it's even the for slow stations. We have to remember as the spouses, yeah, they get their hour of PT and yet they, you know, they're watching a movie at night. They're literally always ready to go at any time. So you're talking 48 hours of anticipation of constantly being ready to go on a call. I don't think people understand the mental load that takes to operate like that. And when you're stuck on a potential 95 ,000 hour shift and you're constantly in that be ready mode, it is exhausting for the firefighter. And then a lot of spouses and people, I think civilians mostly have that idea like, oh, firefighters have it so easy. It's like, you don't really understand it until you see it. And then they come home and they're exhausted. It's not how many calls you've run necessarily, right? Well, the calls doesn't even account for everything, the maintenance that has to happen within the fire station. I mean, hello guys, we're talking about you're exhausted because you've cleaned your house for three days and took care of your kids, but these guys are doing the same thing and they have to be up all night. Yeah. And they have to go to traumatic calls and they might have other things going on. So if you look at it that way. Yeah. It's never, it shouldn't ever be a competition of who has it. It's gotta be a balance and you got to the key to that. Like the key to what made us get that, to make that work was it's a balance. And to your point, like when you said about the mental status of how you are all day, I describe it even at slower stations, you're like a cat. I am like a cat with my nails out in a room full of dogs all day. And you know, that tone goes off every time that tone goes off, every fireman gets that you're going to work. That's it. That bell goes off in your head and that mental status of like being like a cat for three days, four days, 45 days. And it's mentally very tiring. And as my career went on, I always say as a firefighter and a paramedic, it didn't bother me as much because you're in there doing it. But then as you supervise your roles, it's more of a mental status, a mental thing that makes you tired. If you're driving that fire engine coat all the time, that mentally takes a toll on you because you're running red lights. You don't know what the other divers are going to do. And same thing as a captain. Now you're, you're worried about all your guys. So there's always that mental status, especially at the end when as a captain, you've seen a lot now and you know, a lot more now, and you know what can happen. You know, you understand more in every year, that mental capacity, it goes from being a physical to a mental, and that's all it was for

A highlight from 5 BIGGEST Opportunities In Crypto THIS WEEK! (I'm Taking These Trades)

"In today's show we're going to talk about the five most interesting plays of the week, three of which I am actually taking. We have short setups, long setups in what is said to be a pretty interesting week for altcoin specifically and that's why I'm bringing to you my favorite setups of the week and also some of the most interesting coins that have altcoin specific catalysts. So if you do enjoy these watchlist shows every single Monday to prepare you for the week make sure to smash the like button and let me know in the comments below you do enjoy them and we will keep this going as a regular series. All right, kicking off with coin number one, we're going to be boring. We're going to talk about Bitcoin. Of course, it's not an altcoin, but it is in a pretty interesting zone right now, hovering above the key horizontal support level at the 25 -3 zone on the weekly. Bitcoin though, important to note, is still below the 200 MA on the weekly, which is typically a bearish indicator for Bitcoin. We know previous times that this level has acted as a major level of support and resistance. also So the 200 weekly moving average is super important and also the 200 moving average on the daily as well. So just keeping my eye on how Bitcoin reacts here, clearly 25k is that key level, but it doesn't look great for Bitcoin. Momentum in my opinion is still to the downside and the more we test that support the higher chance it does have of breaking, not being too bearish necessarily, but just urging you guys like a little bit of caution as long as we are below the 200 MA on the weekly. Let's get into the first altcoin of the video though in light of that, and that is Chainlink. So Chainlink is one that's actually performed really well this week in the lead up to their Smartcon. Their Smartcon 2023 is essentially a conference where developers and speakers all meet together and talk about the future of the industry, but specifically Chainlink. And we see there are many major speakers, the founder of Chainlink, we even have the former CEO of Google and multiple other major prominent figures across the crypto space speaking. So in the lead up to this, we've actually seen Chainlink perform really well from a price perspective. But in the graph in front of you, I do have the chart that outlines how Chainlink has performed in previous times leading into Smartcon and then leading out of Smartcon. And we can see in 2022, Chainlink actually peaked on the day of Smartcon and then gave up its gains in the following weeks. We can see in 2021, a similar thing happened. Two days before Smartcon, Chainlink peaked. And then after the conference, we saw a huge post -conference dump. Will the same pattern play out? Well, not necessarily, but I am convicted in the case leaning towards a dump post -Smartcon just given the price action that we've seen recently in line with previous data. So I'm convicted if I have to pick between longing and shorting Chainlink, but I think there is a decent short setup brewing here if it does push into the upper echelon of its range territory here on the weekly. And also, as you can see on the daily too, it's firmly within this range, actually approaching the mid -range zone. Maybe we get one last thrust into Smartcon because we know that the conference doesn't start until October 2nd. So that is still a week away. So I expect price performance probably to continue to the upside over the next few days. But then leading into the conference, if you are looking for a short, this may actually be a good one if those RSIs start to get into overheated territory just given what has happened in the past for Chainlink. So that is on my watch list, not as a long, but actually as a short, just playing the range here. We know if you take trades towards the extremity of the range, you're getting much better risk -reward. So the extremities being the upper echelon here near range high and the lower echelon here close to range low. These are your major levels that you want to take swing trades at considering since May 2022, more than a year Chainlink has been in this range. Very, very boring coin, pretty much a stable coin, but has provided great opportunities to those that have been able to long close to support and short close to resistance here. So maybe a setup starting to prime here on the short side if we continue to push upwards. Why wouldn't I long? Well, considering what's happened in previous conferences in line with the recent massive move that we've had, I think you may be longing into an area where it's going to be hard for Chainlink to push any higher. So that's that. All right, now we're going to have a bit of fun. Going to give away some money. So I'm making bold. Five users going to close my eyes actually to make sure I'm not accused of manually picking the users here. All right, I've just highlighted five people in bold. All of you guys are going to win $200. Bang, just like that. So every single person, this wallet here, this wallet here, this wallet here, here and here. If you are in bold, you are going to win $200. We're going to send it directly to your wallet. And that is because you provided liquidity on SmartX. So as you know, every single week, we are airdropping $200 to five random people that provide at least $50 worth of liquidity into SmartX across either Arbitrum, BNB, Base or Polygon. If you don't know what SmartX is, it's essentially an AMM -powered DEX, which is solving the problem of impermanent loss in crypto. A big problem to mitigate the negative effects of impermanent loss and also provide some pretty nice yield opportunities for people that are looking to earn yield on assets like Matic, like Arbitrum, like Ethereum, like BNB and all sorts of assets. USDC also, you compare with their native coin as well. So depending on what risk you want to assume, depending on which tokens you hold, you can stake it into the platform to earn some pretty nice APRs between 20 and up to 50 plus percent. And yeah, if you deposit minimum $50 liquidity and you enter your wallet address using the link in the description, you will enter the giveaway to be one of these lucky people that just won $200 on the show today. So link in the description. Good luck to everyone that is entering the competition for next week, where I will announce the next crop of five winners. And without further ado, let's get straight on with the show. The next coin I want to discuss is Arbitrum. Arbitrum is a really interesting one because they just announced their short -term initiative grant program, which is essentially a form of ecosystem stimulus. So we know when they did the airdrop, that was largely concentrated towards people that were using the Arbitrum chain, but actually now they are starting to help out the projects to incentivize them by essentially allocating some of their token supply towards the projects in the form of incentives grants. So what the projects can do is they can essentially bid for an airdrop. And if Arbitrum elects them via a DAO proposal, which is actually recently being completed, these projects will receive airdrops and then they can choose how they want to distribute those new tokens to their community. So I think that is a little bit of a catalyst to the Arbitrum ecosystem because we could see increased incentives across these platforms, which could obviously help attract some more TVL into the ecosystem. Next week, we also have Arbitrum Odyssey returning, which is also another initiative to get retail involved and you can earn rewards via that. As I said before, we've got this short -term incentive program launching with 50 million ARB, which is around $30 million being distributed to active Arbitrum protocols that apply for the grant. I think this will give the Arbitrum ecosystem a nice boost. I'm just looking at the chart here. Well, the chart looks ugly, but Arbitrum is at significantly discounted levels since it broke below this major dollar support region, which has been pretty strong support for Arbitrum since it first launched. So yes, technically Arbitrum doesn't look good price -wise, but I am maybe going to add a little bit to my bags this week. I have to decide whether I'm going to do that this week or whether I'm going to wait a couple of weeks. Nonetheless, I am definitely eyeing this as more of a spot trade, not a leverage trade because we're not at a key support level. My leverage trading scenario would probably kick in closer to this region if you do get like a confirmed reclamation. But until then, I'm definitely looking at the possibility of adding spot and that's why it makes my coins of the week, given it has a proprietary ecosystem catalyst, which comes in the form of the grants alongside heavily discounted prices heading into EIP 4844 later in the year. Another coin that's heading into EIP 44 being a layer 2 protocol is Optimism. But Optimism actually comes in as my short hedge of today's video. So you guys know in these watch lists, I don't just like to give long setups. I discussed Chainlink potentially being a short setup. Optimism as well, I think could potentially be a short hedge set up this week. What do I mean by short hedge? Well, a lot of you guys probably have relatively like long weighted portfolios, meaning like you're more long than you are net short. I mean myself, that's the case. And usually when I take longs in the market, that will put me in like a naked long position, meaning like I don't always like have a short hedge. But sometimes in markets that are looking kind of shaky, like right now when we get Bitcoin chopping and looking kind of weak, sometimes it's smart to have a hedge. So let's say you long three altcoins in a week. Sometimes it's good to pick like a specifically weak altcoin to hedge short against those other positions to get some sort of neutrality in case your trade goes wrong. Then you can kind of minimize the amount of risk you're taking. It's a strategy like all the top traders will use. And depending on your position size, you can even reach like Delta neutral territory with pair trades and all that sort of thing. But just to keep it really simple, I think Optimism has like a major unlock this week with over 3 % of the circulating supply hitting the market, $30 million worth of Optimism. The unlock event is in four days time. So this is a significantly big unlock for Optimism in what has been a pretty significant period for unlocks overall for the Optimism token. So in light of that, I mean, if you watch my video on token unlocks, search token unlocks, crypto banter, you should be able to watch that whole video. I explained what happens post major token unlocks. And typically what we see is despite peaks happening into unlocks, often the two weeks following the actual unlock date, we do see tokens tend to bleed and give up most of their gains. And if that plays out here on Optimism, then maybe we can expect like a rough couple of weeks from Optimism from a price perspective. So it's looking relatively weak. And if I look at the chart as well, we can see it put in its high here. It got rejected off this horizontal level at 1 .8 and it's made a lower high, another lower high, and looks to be rolling over again. If you start to clear these lows, then I think we could see further downside on Optimism. So those lows come in at the $1 .20 region. I'll just highlight them for you now. This level here, if you start to break below as we are now and you do confirm that breakdown, then Optimism could definitely be going lower. And for that reason, I would look at a short if we do get some sort of roll over here and a lower high start to firm up on the daily chart. But you could even look at it on the four hourly chart. Of course, you don't really want to take trades in the daily, use daily for your confluence, use one hourly, four hourly for your entries, depending on your timeframe. And yeah, Optimism definitely looking quite weak. So that is my short hedge of the week. So now let's get into a couple long scenarios because we've talked about two shorts. I've given you a long. Now let's talk about two more tokens that are more interested in longing that I am shorting. The first one is the OX token. Now for full disclosure, OpenX, the exchange, which is obviously powered by the OX token is an official show partner in today's video. I don't want you guys to get confused between the token and the partnership. I'm not paid to shield the token when I'm paid to promote the token. And I'm mentioning the token in a completely neutral light in today's video, just based on my personal thesis that has nothing to do with the partnership. Just want to make that very clear. The OX token though, the token itself, not the exchange, has, I mean, been significantly beaten down over the past few weeks. And this is because essentially a lot of users had locked up their OX tokens for three months after they bridged Flex, which was the coin Flex's exchange token over to the OpenX protocol and to stake OX tokens. And in light of that three months after they closed the bridge, you get a significant amount of unlocks because people are entering or coming out of their stake period. So when people come out of their stake period and they now have liquid OX, some people are going to choose to sell if they want to either take profits or just, you know, minimize risk on a maybe potentially oversized position that in tandem with users starting to receive their vested OX as part of the normal token distribution. We've kind of seen a lot of supply come onto the market over the last week. And this has resulted in a huge drawdown in the price from the 0 .7 region to the 0 .2 region. I mean, it's really been beaten down and I even took a loss on this cause I bought some OX and I staked it and I'm actually down on it. However, considering the staking ratio is still relatively high and there are a lot of people now going to be relocking for the long -term which reduces supply pressures. I do think that OX is starting to become a slightly more interesting look now at these heavily discounted prices if you do believe in the OpenX vision. And that vision is essentially, you know, of course, Carl Davies and Zhu Su but also betting on a protocol that's quite unique with its transparency features as well as the governance features of the platform which make it really unique for users like allowing you to, for example, stake OX and get its real -world assets in exchange for staking. So they do native airdrops. They've also been launching lots of tokens like really quickly. So they have this propensity to list tokens before any other exchange. So it's kind of like the degen exchange, I guess quite in tune with the market. And if you're betting on the redemption arc then OX does become an interesting bet. The volume on the exchange has been fairly strong $8 .5 billion trade volume since launch actually quite impressive. Average daily trade volume is around 100 mil on the seven day and or more than 100 mil on a seven day and 30 day timeframe. And actually 61 % of OX is staked and locked in the herd. So we are seeing some people after their unlock starting to actually relock OX tokens into the exchange. So look, you've got to make your own decision whether you wanna buy the token personally though not financial advice, but personally I will be adding some more to my bags and I'm gonna stake it as I staked a prior 10 ,000 OX might increase my position by let's say 30 % that would give me another 3000 OX. I'll probably go ahead and stake that. And that's my plan for the week but that's not financial advice. You don't have to do the same. And I wanna give full disclosure that OX is of course or OpenX not the OX token itself is a partner of the show. There's a link in the description to OpenX. If you do wanna check it out check out any information as well. And yeah, just thought I would mention that one because it's interesting getting a heavy discount if you do believe in the ecosystem, which I personally do. All right, let's get on to the next token. Another ecosystem I believe in and I believe in this one quite a lot. This is frack share. So I did a show last week. I think it was on real world assets and the potential. I mean, the sector is projected to grow by 26 X on the conservative side according to analysts at the Boston Consulting Group. On the more aggressive side of the spectrum they're anticipating 113 X in the real world asset sector by the year 2030. So that's seven years potentially looking at a 26 to 100 X. So this is a huge growth vertical and a massive adoption vertical for crypto really with tokenized assets coming on chain. And I'm always interested in protocols which are harnessing the potential of this. Now fracks isn't necessarily a real world asset specific protocol. They're doing a lot. They have their fracks land. They've got their fracks B3. They're launching fracks chain. They've got their stable coin. They've got a lot of stuff going on. They're essentially how I like to think of them as like a DeFi powerhouse. They're like the hand that controls DeFi, I guess. And is doing a bunch of stuff in multiple DeFi ecosystems. But if you're interested in real world asset exposure alongside a variety of other DeFi initiatives then I think fracks becomes a super interesting bet for a diversified portfolio. Now, the reason I'm talking about them in a watchlist video though, cause you know these Monday shows aren't just talking about long -term bets. Most of these are geared towards, you know the medium to short term type of trades is because fracks has its V3 actually completing its audit this week. So the fracks V3 audit means V3 is going to be on the horizon within the next few months. So that is an immediate catalyst for fracks as well as the fact that they could be getting an ARB grant because obviously their protocol is deployed across a variety of EVM chains, Arbitrum included meaning they could definitely get their hands on an Arbitrum grant, which would be another catalyst for the fracks protocol. So lots of stuff happening with the audit with the grant, with the new products that they're shipping fracks chain is also coming soon. So just lots to look forward to. And from a price action perspective it's been pretty resilient. Like we can see over the last 30 days it hasn't given up a lot of its gains. And even over the last 90 days, it has drawn down but it's only really dropped from, you know, 6 .8 to 5 .5 when a lot of other tokens have been smashed 30, 40, 50%. So yes, it's down, but it's not down as much as the rest of the market. And that tells me there's some sort of bid here for the fracks token at what is a discounted price versus a similar times last year. So fracks is an interesting one for me long -term mostly but in the short to medium term for me, this is a decent zone for me to add a little bit more fracks to my portfolio. And it's nice because it gives me DeFi exposure but it also gives me reward asset exposure. And it's a nice asset that I've just been DCA into over time. So that is a super interesting one. Let's just go through the market right now and actually look at Banta Bubbles and see if I can spot any that come to mind. Obviously I've given you a few trades in today's video but let's just see if there's anything else. Aptos actually does look interesting. It recently broke above some of the key horizontals that it was breaking down from over the past couple of months. So as a reversal trade, I definitely look into that. If I was a trader, I was even considering taking along today on it. I missed it unfortunately, but if we do get a pullback I might get into that one. So that's what I'm looking at. IMX not too interested in, let's just see on the weekly curve. Lots of stuff happening on curve but overall leans bearish with the amount of sell pressure in my opinion. FTT is a volatile one that if you're a trader you could definitely look at day trading. We know that there's lots of stuff happening with FTT given that the court case is currently underway and lots of the tokens now are changing hands and some are being sold. So it's quite interesting to see what actually happens here. We also saw some stuff happening with FTT and Binance as well. So those are kind of the coins from Banta Bubbles that I would keep my eye on. Another project to keep my eye on that's actually going to be launching soon is Serenity Shield. Now, Serenity Shield is a partner of the show that has a very interesting product launching soon. They're essentially launching a product which is referred to as the strongbox. Now, the strongbox is your ultimate security protocol for you to be able to store your assets in a decentralized, immutable and secure way. So if you want to store your assets but not have to worry about exploitation risk, not have to worry about ownership of keeping it on a centralized exchange, you can keep it in the strongbox protocol which is built purely for security to encrypt your data and encrypt your assets. But there are a couple really interesting features which they're introducing to make self -custody easier for the average user. One of them is the recover feature which enables users to have peace of mind knowing that their data is available using their recovery software without needing a hardware wallet which is available 24 -7. That's a good one because I don't know if you've ever been in this situation before but I have where I've lost a ledger and I can't find the seed phrase and I've been scrambling to redeem my assets. That's actually happened. I don't know if it's happened to you but if I had my assets in the strongbox that wouldn't have been an issue. The transfer function though I think is probably the most novel and maybe a kind of weird one to talk about since it's talking about inheritance which sometimes implies the death of yourself or potentially a family member but this does solve a massive problem in crypto and that's what happens if something happens to you. What happens to your tokens? What happens to your crypto? Are they easily accessible? Well in strongbox what you can do is you can put in a designated nominee and you can choose where your assets go if something were to happen to you to transfer your wealth down to your nominee. So it is quite interesting that they have this function inbuilt. It might be specifically attractive to adopt maybe the older generation that's actively thinking about this and they might hold bitcoin or ethereum but want those assurances and securities. They could leverage a protocol like strongbox that essentially enables them to have peace of mind over their assets and the transfer of those assets. So it's super interesting. You can see a little example of the platform in front of you. I will be using the platform on the show over the next few weeks to test it out for you but if you want to get involved right now they have a $50 ,000 search rewards pool. They recently had their token IDO, their sale to allow people to buy the token. If you want to get your hands on the token and you can do so via the airdrop all you need to do is click the link in the description and you can take part in the incentivized testnet for the strongbox dapp which is powered by the bnb chain. So all you need to do is essentially test out the application. You've got four days to do so using the link in the description and you could get an airdrop of some tokens. So not a bad one. If you just want to spend a few minutes of time there I will leave a link to this post which has a full tutorial and all the links needed in the description below and also in the comments as well to help you out. And yeah okay well that's pretty much the video. I got through it in a shorter amount of time. If you notice I'm speaking quickly it's because I want to get the info to you. We have the Bitcoin price which is currently leaning bearish but still at a major support but below the 200ma. You've got Chainlink which I'm looking at a short post conference. You've got Arbitrum which is interesting with its incentives grant. You have Optimism which I think is relatively bearish heading into a pretty significant token unlock. I just don't know if market conditions right now can absorb that amount of sell pressure. You've got Ox which I think is an interesting spot play considering a lot of the selling has now happened and we're looking forward to what hopefully is a slightly better period for the token with you know in the face of a lot of unlocks. You've got Frax Share launching their V3 and also their Frax Chain. This is one that I've been DCAing into and you've got the Serenity Shield airdrop as well. So that's the video. I'm going to see you in the next one which will be tomorrow. I really hope you enjoyed. I've actually been testing out a lot of training bots so I'm going to get back to testing out my training bots right now and I'm tweaking some strategies. That video will be coming very very soon. Very excited for that one but until then I'll see you later. Peace out.

"Welcome to your Ethereum news roundup. Here's your latest for Monday, September 25th, 2023. Angle Protocol introduces SDRO, Consensus partners with Protocol Labs for its startup program, OP Labs outlines its fault -proof VM design, and Arbitrum redesigns its ecosystem portal. All this and more starts right now. The Arbitrum on Gitcoin Grants round is now live, if you'd like to support this podcast please consider contributing by visiting ethdaily .io forward slash gitcoin. Angle Protocol introduced STRO, a stablecoin pegged to the euro that offers a variable 4 % APY. The protocol generates yield by holding BC3M, representing an ETF invested in short -term euro government bonds currently yielding 3 .6%. Users can exchange their AGO stablecoins for STRO to earn interest. Angle Protocol has committed to distributing 90 % of its projected earnings to holders. The APY will be adjusted on a weekly basis depending on the utilization rate. There are no upfront fees, deposit or withdraw charges, locks, or minimum deposit requirements for minting STRO. Angle Protocol has integrated a feature onto its dApp to swap into AGO and stake it for STRO in a single transaction. Consensus partnered with Protocol Labs to support builders as part of its Consensus Scale startup program. Accepted program participants will have access to Protocol Labs resources, technical support, co -marketing opportunities, workshops, funding, and Consensus products like MetaMask, Infura, and Linea. The program aims to support dApps and Web3 projects in the Seed to Series A funding stages. Funded projects with an existing team and product -market fit can apply for the Consensus Scale program, which spans 24 months. Protocol Labs is an open -source research and development startup incubator. In a new blog post, OP Labs detailed how the design of the fault -proof VM in the OP stack contributes to both social and technical decentralization. The fault -proof VM is a component of the OP stack's fault -proof system focused on the secure execution of instructions. Its design embraces the multi -client principle, supporting multiple proof types. The design of the fault -proof VM ensures it remains unaffected by protocol changes on Layer 1, such as the addition of new opcodes.

"Welcome to your Ethereum news roundup. Here's your latest for Tuesday, September 19th, 2023. Optimism opens applications for RetroPGF3. Base introduces the Pessimism monitoring system. Arbitrum announces the return of Arbitrum Odyssey. And Safe introduces ERC7512. All this and more starts right now. The Arbitrum on Gitcoin Grants round is now live. If you'd like to support ETH daily, please consider donating to our grant by visiting ethdaily .io forward slash gitcoin. The Optimism Collective is now accepting applications for its third retroactive public goods funding round in which a total of 30 million OP tokens will be distributed to projects that have contributed to Optimism. Optimism contributors and builders can apply between now and October 23rd. Batch holders, which are members that have been selected to be part of the Citizen's House, will vote on the allocation of the 30 million OP tokens in November. The Citizen's House is a 1 % one -vote based governance system. 20 % of the OP token treasury has been allocated to retroactive public goods funding. Base introduced Pessimism, an open source monitoring system designed to improve security across the OP stack and Ethereum ecosystems. Pessimism can be used to detect protocol threats and security vulnerabilities specific to the OP stack and EVM compatible chains. Developers can use Pessimism to monitor network performance. The system consists of three primary subsystems coined as ETL, risk engine, and alerting. Coinbase plans to expand Pessimism's coverage to include bridge monitoring, including withdrawal safety and detecting potential faults. Users can make any feature requests and contribute to Pessimism by opening an issue on GitHub. Arbitrum announced the return of Arbitrum Odyssey, a seven -week initiative that rewards users with NFTs for completing protocol -specific tasks on the network. Initially launched in June of 2022, the program was paused after its first week due to high traffic and higher than expected gas fees. Arbitrum partnered with Galaxy for the new initiative. The new Arbitrum Odyssey is set to commence on September 26 and will encompass tasks involving 13 different protocols. Arbitrum explicitly stated that participants will not receive airdrops apart from the NFT badges earned. Arbitrum also announced Hop Protocol as the winner for Bridge Week. Users who used Hop Protocol during Bridge Week can now claim their NFT badge. And lastly, SAFE introduced ERC7512, a proposed standard aiming to bridge the gap between smart contract audit reports, which are typically in PDF form, and smart contracts deployed on -chain. The standard simplifies the discovery and verification of smart contract audits. ERC7512 allows auditing firms to cryptographically sign the reports using EIP712. On -chain smart contract audits can then be parsed to extract audit details such as auditor information and verified standards. Audit firms can also build their reputation through on -chain attestations facilitated by Ethereum attestation service. ERC7512 is currently open for community discussion.

"This is the what a weird week show alien mummies again. Hi everybody. It's weird. This is like crazy moon healing. Really weird, weird tale. Well, I got a great show for you today. It was so wonderful. Weird stuff. Hi friends. I'm Scott. This is what a weird week, a show about weird stuff from this week's news for the links, the videos, podcast stuff, everything we talk about. Go show notes .page. If you can remember this, you will find it all show notes .page. 10. Hey, here we go. Season four episode 51 first published on Friday, September the 15th. Number 10 is man from Pennsylvania sees 777 theater movies in one year. That's a Guinness world record. Zachariah Swope is 32 years old. He loves movies. He hit 777 movies in a year. That means you have to average more than two a day. Zachariah demolished the old record of 715 movies. Zach used the record breaking odyssey to raise awareness for mental health initiatives. Then the theater where Zach broke the record, the regal surprised him with a donation to the American Federation for suicide prevention. The amount was $7 ,777 and 77 cents. How did he do it? Zach would get off work and then watch two movies. And then on weekends he would watch more. Taking one night off a week. That's like 16 or 17 movies every week. He used a movie pass deal. So it only costs act between like this was all out of pocket for him between two and 300 bucks. If you didn't have that movie pass, it would have been like a lot more in the thousands. Number nine is chopping chopper chops a lot. Wallace Wong has an inspiring story. He overcame obesity. He beat cancer. He became a bodybuilder and a chef and a tick tock star. And now he has a chopping world record nickname is the six pack chef. He set a record for the most cucumbers sliced while blindfolded in 30 seconds. The record is 166 slices of cucumber, more than five per second. Usually I'm like, come on, try to beat this world record this weekend. You could do it. Beat Wallace's record. I would say, please do not try blindfold chop stuff. He is an expert. We have a video and more on the story in the show notes or go show notes .page.

"In the labyrinth of darkness, the epicenter of our tale reveals itself as a dazzling display of dancing fluorescence. At its helm, a young Alberto, his countenance fresh and enigmatic, glows faintly under the gentle aurora of the colossal supercomputer before him. The boy's wide -eyed wonder paints him as both a shepherd and an explorer carving his first inscription into the shifting dunes of the digital frontier. His irises shimmer with the reflection of an endless stream of cryptic symbols flowing on the electronic canvas before him. His fingers, nimble and eager, pause above the keyboard, imitating a conductor awaiting the stage's silence before summoning the symphony's opening notes. Caught betwixt and between the immaterial ether of cyberspace and the palpable grain of reality, Alberto is akin to a modern -day deadless. His flight is bound not by wax and feathers, but binary and silicon, the harbinger of a journey that promises ecstasy and despair in equal measure. In the background, the shadowy silhouette of a once -naive world looms, its edges blurred and forgotten. The supercomputer, in its radiant magnitude, overpowers the room, effortlessly outshining the feeble resistances of the traditional table lamp and the antiquated stacks of papers. This tapestry of innovation swells with an impending symphony of the unknown. The tableau thrives on the tension between a boy meeting the future and a future inviting the boy. The prelude to Alberto's odyssey swirls around this singular moment, a timeless dance of digital curiosity, culminating in the tantalizing edge of a horizon yet undiscovered. This is his log into hell, the first key struck on the keyboard of his destiny. So so so In the labyrinth of darkness, the epicenter of our tale reveals itself as a dazzling display of dancing fluorescence.

A highlight from THE UNYIELDING JOURNEY OF ALBERTO DANIEL HILL: RESILIENCE PERSONIFIED

"The Unyielding Journey of Alberto Daniel Hill, Resilience Personified In the echoing canyons of time and the intricate network of evolving technology, a tale of unyielding resilience, powerful determination, and profound inspiration unfurls itself, a human saga that transcends the ordinary, lending an extraordinary sheen to the digital canvas of life, this is the Odyssey of Alberto Daniel Hill. Alberto's passage into the realm of cryptocurrencies began four riveting years ago, a journey marked not just by milestones, but by meteors that illuminated the dark night with their radiant brilliance. His was not a voyage on calm waters, rather, it was a relentless dance, spinning tirelessly with the ever -shifting currents of the unpredictable world of blockchain technology. For three tumultuous years, Alberto intertwined himself with the enigmatic mysteries of blockchain technology, his spirit unfettered by the turbulent waves but elevated by the winds of constant learning. His resilience, reminiscent of an indomitable tree, stemmed from a conviction, a conviction to decode the mysterious symbols of this state -of -the -art technology. A turning point in this compelling narrative would be his instrumental participation in the launch of an initial coin offering, ICO, in 2017. As an erudite team member, his expertise shaped the eco's path, ultimately carving Alberto's first indelible mark into the expanding universe of digital currencies. This marked the dawn of a transformative era, his confidence growing with a rising sun. As the world began to notice this rising luminary, conferences across Uruguay and South America echoed with the resonant sound of his voice. His compelling narratives about cryptocurrencies and their intrinsic security issues engendered a hushed excitement and anticipation that peppered the halls filled with eager listeners. Then, came the crossroads. A moment when Alberto matured from his explorations of bitcoins, was drawn irresistibly towards the broader landscape of blockchain technology and fintech. Heeding to this siren's call he took the bold step of resigning from his tenured position as an information security professional at Uruguay's largest company. The year was 2016, and a new chapter was etched in his escalating ascend, the birth of cryptocurrency services. Our protagonist, however, was armed with more than courage and curiosity. Two decades of experience in information security, consulting, IT security, computer forensics, and ethical hacking endowed Alberto with a solid bedrock of knowledge and credibility. His proficiency was proven, his stature was definitive, and his dedication unyielding. Alberto's fortitude wasn't just a show of personal resolve, he held high the torch of knowledge, illuminating the path for others to follow. As a project management professional PMP, he successfully led numerous information security projects since 2011. As an honored recipient of the Cybersecurity Fundamentals Certificate, CSX, from ISICA, a prestigious organization that gifted him with a platinum membership recognition, he made a mark that was impossible to overlook. Today, Alberto has fully immersed himself into the intricate workings of blockchain and NFT technology. As he maneuvers impressive NTF projects and fortifies the ecosystem, he shares his wisdom as an author of numerous articles, and as a teacher of their profound depths. His words now find their way into two inspiring books about NFTs, a testament to his commitment to advancing knowledge. The story of Alberto Daniel Hill resonates with a profound lesson, resilience and determination are the twin stars that guide us through the storms. Bearing them in our hearts, we're given the power to forge our unique path, the ability to touch the stars of our dreams. For as we unravel Alberto's journey, we find that it's not just his story but an empowering narrative of unequivocal resilience and unyielding genius, inviting us all to acknowledge our inherent potential amidst life's adversities.

Rising Above the Storm: Weathering the Siege of Toxicity and Attacks on Twitter

"Rising above the storm, weathering the siege of toxicity and attacks on Twitter. An unrelenting tempest, the biting winds cut into every fiber of our being, as we traverse the vast digital landscape that is Twitter. In this realm, a simple tap on the screen can unleash an avalanche of toxicity, hubs of hatred, and rings of relentless malice. So how does one find solace amidst the chaos? In the valleys of web -based discourse, we may encounter forces that darken our paths and strike at the core of our fortitude. Yet, amidst these embattled paths, there lies untapped strength, the potential to transform ourselves into digital warriors of calm amidst a maelstrom of turmoil. Unearthing the beacon of serenity, in the midst of a cyber onslaught we often seek refuge in counterattacks and aggressive reactions, a response born of instinct. However, to rise above these challenges and emerge unscathed, we must develop a different kind of arsenal. Embrace the power of detachment. Acknowledging the ephemeral, shifting nature of digital platforms bestows upon us the clarity to see beyond the venomous words, taking a step back from the fray may unlock the tranquility essential to weather this storm. Cultivate a digital sanctuary. A carefully curated haven of inspiring thoughts, genuine connections, and heartening content can serve as a bulwark against the encroaching storm. Foster relationships with like -minded souls who fuel your strength and remind you why you embarked on this journey. Raise your voice for good. In the face of crushing negativity dare to rise above and speak up for issues close to your heart. By channeling your energy into positivity and illuminating causes that matter, you become a beacon of hope, inspiring others to do the same. The warrior's mantle, turning adversity into growth. In the pursuit of peace, we must don the warrior's armor, shielding our hearts from the tumult while maintaining focus on our purpose. Embodying the following values will foster resilience and empower us to reshape our experience. Embody empathy. In recognizing the shared humanity within every tweet, we allow ourselves the chance to understand and respond with compassion, diffusing the situation, and leaving a lasting impact. Don the armor of mindfulness. By practicing conscious reflection, we can weed out unconscious biases and harmful beliefs, strengthening our resolve to become champions of constructive dialogue. Wielding the sword of accountability, to hold ourselves and others responsible for the words uttered, we take a stance against hate and contribute to fostering an environment of respect and unity. The transcendent journey, from survivor to trailblazer, twitter, for all its challenges and tribulations, also presents a unique opportunity, the chance to rewrite the narrative of our digital lives. Navigating the tempest with grit and determination, we become unshakable beacons of hope and examples to those who seek solace amidst the chaos. In this grand odyssey, we learn to find beauty in the cacophony inspiration amidst the tribulations, and growth in the face of adversity. We forge onwards carving pathways through the storm, lighting fires of inspiration and empowerment for all who follow in our footsteps. This is not a story of surviving twitter, this is a tale of transcending it, a fable of turning adversity into a hallowed legacy.

A highlight from Polygon MATIC: Everything You Need To Know!

"You need a pretty extensive vocabulary to be a polygon holder. There's always new applications and updates that bring a whole new list of new names and terms to learn. Sometimes, names even change, like we saw with the name of the project itself. Polygon is here to stay though. And keeping up with what is happening in this ecosystem is how you really stay ahead of the game. Let's get it. Welcome to BitBoy Crypto! My name is Ben. In this video, we're going to give you an update on Polygon, which is a layer 2 network that was launched as a scaling solution for Ethereum way back in 2020. Back then, it was called the Matic Network. This is why the token that powers the blockchain is still called Matic. Well, maybe more like because Polymath has the ticker poly. The brother rebranded to Polygon in 2021, but kept the name Matic for the token's ticker. Things won't always be this way though. It was recently announced that now it will eventually be called POL, or P -O -L. Then that will become the primary token of the Polygon network. This will happen as part of an upgrade where holders have the ability to exchange their old Matic tokens into new POL tokens. But both assets are expected to have value and utility in the ecosystem after the upgrade. For now, Matic is still used to pay fees on the Polygon network, and staking Matic is also required for running validator nodes on the blockchain as well, which is very similar to the architecture that Ethereum has taken on since the merge. Polygon is also a proof of stake network that operates as a sidechain, which means that it is its own independent blockchain linked to the main Ethereum chain using a two -way bridge. Bridges are mechanisms for moving crypto assets between Ethereum and Polygon. There are a variety of different bridges to choose from. You can pick the official bridge, which takes a bit longer and is a bit safer, or you can use one of the many different third -party bridges for a faster experience. Polygon's blockchain is compatible with Ethereum applications because it is an Ethereum virtual machine or EVM blockchain. Polygon's EVM is called BORE. It's got a few tweaks on the original Ethereum code to maximize for high transaction speed and low costs. Even though Polygon is one of Ethereum's oldest and most successful layer 2 networks, it continues to be the underdog of the sector because many developers refuse to give a sidechain a fair shake. This is why Polygon wasn't listed on tracking sites like L2Beat for the longest time. Now, you'll see Polygon in the rankings, but it isn't actually the proof of stake sidechain that will be there. It will be the newer Polygon ZKEVM chain, which has much less liquidity, but will eventually become more popular than the proof of stake sidechain in the future. So, you know the future? You can be a future member of the BitSquad by liking this video, following the channel and ringing the bell for notifications. Also, thank you to Stake for sponsoring this video. I mean, check it out. But don't look too close. Layer 2 projects are popular for their ability to scale their layer 1 project, and there's a method of the madness. The ZKEVM is Polygon's zero -knowledge rollup, which will be more decentralized and secure than the current layer 2s that exist on Ethereum. For now, it's still in beta though. So developers have warned to be careful. ZK stands for a type of technology called zero -knowledge proofs, which will be able to handle transactions much faster and more securely than the proof of stake sidechain. ZK proofs can also make it possible for individuals to prove certain things to other parties without revealing unwanted information, which can help make blockchain transactions more private. Polygon announced other blockchain networks for its ecosystem in 2022 called SuperNets. SuperNet is an additional chain built for a specific use case, similar to the app chains in the Cosmos ecosystem. SuperNets are based on Polygon's POS consensus mechanism, but since they are only focused on one use case, applications take full advantage of the blockchain instead of sharing it with others. Another term you may have heard tossed around is the Polygon SDK. SDK stands for Software Development Kit. Polygon's SDK contains modular libraries, tools and guides to help developers build on the blockchain. The SDK supports multiple programming languages like JavaScript, Python and Go. This makes blockchain more accessible for developers, which accelerates the development of applications on the network. Imagine, if things are more accessible for developers, things go better. So incredible apps have already launched on Polygon, working apps that people are actually using. One of the most promising protocols is Lens, a social media network that finally gives users control of their own accounts and information. Lens is still invite -only, but you can pick up an old account in FCE to start experimenting with the platform. There are rumors that they will be launching a governance token at some point, so using the platform is an easy way to qualify for the potential airdrops. Polygon is also home to Avogadji, one of the original crypto games that was a pioneer in the play to earn space. As the name implies, Avogadji is similar to the old Tamagotchi digital pet games from the 90s, which I'd never played. I was too busy playing Pogs. But it's tied to DeFi through the popular application Aave. It also has its own token called Ghost or GHST since Aave is Finnish for ghost. But we're just getting started. One of the most bullish things about Polygon is the attention that it has gotten from the mainstream. Polygon is where Reddit decided to launch their extremely successful NFT project and is also home to the Starbucks Odyssey loyalty program. If you're using those apps and sending transactions, you're going to need to learn how to navigate around Polygon Scan, a blog explorer that is used to view and analyze data from the Polygon blockchain. Polygon Scan provides information on blocks, transactions, balances and other on -chain activity. If you're familiar with either scan, it works in pretty much the same way. Polygon is even diving into AI with its own chat GPT -style chatbot called Polygon Copilot, which also helps out with coding and can be particularly helpful for developers building on Polygon. With that said, Polygon is one of the fastest expanding blockchain networks in the crypto ecosystem. And there are new terms popping up all the time. This is just a starter pack. And this list will probably grow a lot over the next few years, so you'll have to keep on paying attention. But that's all I got. Be blessed. BitBoy out.

Yarr sound exciting Ahoy, matey come along with us on this ride for episode number 693 of the bad crypto podcast Welcome to the bad crypto podcast Sir Lord Joel come here with you Travis Is getting ready to do some globe trotting and he's got a lot of stuff to do. He's very busy right now And so I'm rolling solo today, but not truly because I've got a guest with me he's an old friend and We're just gonna jump right into the interview because there's two things that I want you to walk away with as you listen number one how to pay less Taxes legally and not just crypto taxes, but any type of gains taxes on your stock portfolio taxes on your precious metals gains crypto and more and I want to invite you to come along with us on a vacation on the high seas. You're gonna love this Let's listen in As You know Sir Lord Travis and myself have been living in Puerto Rico now for over two years It's it's been really interesting met a ton of incredible people, but one of the gentlemen who is Responsible for me being here is an old friend. His name is Davin Michaels Davin's an entrepreneur he's a crypto guy and He was on episode number 382 of this podcast a little more than three years ago But you might not know it because he was on the same show as dr. Ron Paul Dr. Paul, of course was the headliner and then there was like oh also Davin and I wanted to give him the spotlight today because we've got a lot of really interesting things to talk about Davin Michaels welcome back to the Republic of bad cryptopia, sir Mr. Joel calm my dear friend of almost 15 years. It's great to be here with you Mika No, I think it might be longer than that. I think it might be too if we had met around 2007 it's it's 16 years. Yeah. Yeah, we just taken it your way for me. I'm sorry about that We just celebrated the 15th year of one to three employee. I was shooting a commemorative video for our employees So that's 15 years there Wow And for those of you watching the video version on YouTube rumble or Odyssey that is a real background Davin lives really a big stones throw away from me right on the harbor here in Palma still Mar and It's a beautiful day. It's a hot day But you know, what's mind -boggling to me is here We are closer than the rest of the states to the equator and they've been having a worse heat wave Then we've been having yeah, not too bad here. Not too bad. Nice breeze Beautiful paradise all year long. Yeah So for those of you that really want to go deep on the Puerto Rico connection and the tax benefits I recommend you go back to the episode. We recorded three years ago. It's bad co dot in 382 we'll have that in the show notes for this particular episode as well But I want to touch on it Devon before we get into some other things today Including we're gonna be talking about so you guys want to stay tuned for this an interesting opportunity To go on a cruise with us in April. That's a little teaser for you let's let's start out with the overarching benefits of why Americans are moving to Puerto Rico Yeah, absolutely so Puerto Rico is a territory and if you are a u .s Citizen and you jump through the legal hoops and you make Puerto Rico your legal home In other words, you live here at least half the year then you essentially pay almost no tax So we pay four percent federal income tax We pay zero percent capital gains We pay zero percent in dividends and it is truly a game -changer a dear friend of both yours and mine and neighbor of So many years John Lee Dumas who is an unbelievably successful podcaster JLD always says I work 4 % of the year for the federal government and 96 % of the rest of the year for myself. He said he works the first couple of weeks of the year for the government then that's it and That's that's a big game -changer. So we lived in LA where we were paying I don't know between You know corporate and federal and state and I think I was paying about 63 % in taxes and it was just absolutely ridiculous And so we first moved to Vegas got rid of the state tax and then eventually moved here and got rid of most of it But there's so many more benefits, too So for example, one of the greatest benefits is is deal flow and you were talking about that a few minutes ago The amazing people you meet here because you got to be a mover and shaker to do this You know, you you have a tax situation, right? You need to save money. You're doing well in addition to that To pick up and move to a territory You have to be a pioneer which you are such a pioneer and you you and I both have that pioneering spirit as does Everybody over here. And then what happens is you have to spend at least a half a year in paradise. It just sucks Right. I mean look at this. It's just so hard, you know, so it's gorgeous here all year long There's great food great people and the actual people who live in Puerto Rico actual Puerto Ricans Are some of the loveliest people in in the world. They will just give the shirt off their back for you They are so nice. So wonderful and I'll give you an example You just walk down the street and people are saying good day to you. Good day. Good day Good day. Well, we leave we travel and and people aren't speaking to us like saying like greeting us on the street We're like gosh, you know you get used to this, right and then we greet people and they look at us like we're crazy But there's also a lot more benefits than just tax benefits. So so the way all this works is Puerto Rico is a territory. They have their own tax authority and it's not the IRS It's hacienda. And so if you're a bona fide resident of Puerto Rico, that's who you're paying your taxes to you're letting the IRS Know what you're up to but you're paying hacienda And there's all these other programs that are available to they used to be a whole bunch of different acts They've now put them under an umbrella called act 60 when Joel and I got into this It was called act 2022 and we were just two of those acts but now act 60 brings them all together and Just to give you some examples of some of these acts I have a car that is a plug -in hybrid It only gets 19 miles on a charge. Okay, it's just it's just a token thing But because it has a plug I was able to import it here tax -free and save 30 % in taxes There's an entertainment tax here. My cousin Danny was just here shooting a Pilot for Amazon. She got a 40 % tax break of which you can you know cash in that tax break at 97 and 19 to 99 cents on the dollar so it's essentially cash back There is a hospitality credit if you have like an Airbnb that has at least I think it's seven or eight beds and baths You get 40 % back over four years Many of you who might live in the u .s. Might be familiar with Opportunity zones where you get amazing tax benefits Well, 98 % of this entire island is an opportunity zone and this list just goes on and on I learn about all these new incentives all every day and I don't know all of them But in a few minutes, we're gonna talk about one way that I'm gonna both you and I are gonna learn all about them And by the way, Joel My guess is you don't know about all of them either. No, I don't I know, you know act 60 That's that's what I'm here on and it's you know, what you say is so true I came for the tax breaks. Yeah, and I did have friends already. I knew you and I knew JLT and Had visited in fact I think that we you're recording the last time you were on the show was when I first visited you In February 2020 the episode came out the the following month and we were going to move Yeah that May and then kovat hit and everything became more complicated and we put it off for another year But I'm really glad that I pulled the trigger when I did I came for the tax breaks But I'm staying for the community I have never in my life and I'm approaching 60 ever nor in a community like this of high performers of creative people of good hearted people and you have everything in where we live in Palma del Mar from Thousandaires to billionaires and from hanging out with people you wouldn't know the difference of who you're hanging out with Because it seems like the egos are largely checked at the gate and people were all here kind of for the same reasons Yeah, it's a yeah for sure. Sorry to interrupt. It's but yeah, it's like kind of a flip -flop and t -shirt community, right? So how are you gonna be flexing? You know what I mean? So it's nice. It's nice people do check their egos at the door I think for the most part there's all of these Groups that were in and signal and what's happened. There's always something going on You know, I've become a pickleball enthusiast since I've moved here. Erin is a big golf Enthusiast and you know, we we live on the golf course So holes five and six of the palms course are right behind our condo And the beach is right outside the door. And so it's just there's always something to do We're going somewhere tonight. Are you are you joining us tonight? What's going on tonight? I don't know Okay Yeah, check check with your social director. I'll check with mine. Yeah, but Like you said I've never experienced anything like it except on like television, right? These little you know, these TV shows that take place in this little small town Everybody knows each other and they're all like best homies, but I've never experienced in real life until moving to Puerto Rico I think part of it is you know when you're in the city like we came from Denver To somebody's orchestrate calendar with yours in multiple couples calendars to get together. It's a big deal It's an event here. There's so many people and so many friendly people that it's like hey, what are you doing for dinner tonight? Hey, we're having you know karaoke at our place this weekend we're going to the beach club on Sunday and and people just continue to get together to the point where We have now had to since we've been here vacations with Groups people of from here So we basically just pack up Puerto Rico and we put it on a cruise ship and take it on the road and we'll talk A little bit more about that here soon. By the way, are you going to Rustin's a rip your float party tomorrow? Yes, I am But we have another party simultaneously, so we're gonna be jumping back and forth So Let's you know, we kind of hit on the governmental programs the things that are available here And we'll try and find a website for you guys that has all of the different acts so that you can take a look at Those let's talk a little bit about some of the the services on the island and the things that people are working on Yeah, so what's interesting is well, okay. So let me start with my own personal experience. So I always I Felt that when we came here we were gonna approach this as we are a guest in this Territory and and so I don't you know, try to push my opinions or agenda on anybody and My goal was to make this place a better place than when I got here Right to make a difference and make an impact and I like I kind of an impact jump junkie so I really like that and a lot of people are doing the same thing here and You know, you could you could actually come here and say I'm not gonna do any of that I don't want to have any impact I'm just gonna do my time and so on and so forth and you would still impact the economy because you'd hire a ton of people to help you with a bunch of different stuff and you put a lot of money into the economy and so I'm involved in a lot of projects here One of my favorites is I am a member of PMPR partnership for modern Puerto Rico which is the think tank that was created by Alberto backo who's the former secretary of commerce to Puerto Rico and He actually if you came in on our program act of 2022 several years ago He would have signed the decree because it was he and his regime if you will that that that ushered in act 2022 And it has had such a huge impact on the on this island So many things are happening I'll give you an example in this enclave that we all live in There has not been new development here in two decades in 20 years because it was overbuilt in the heyday prior to 2008 Now there's new construction here And people are benefiting one of the things that is included in the act 60 program not in my decree But in the current decree is that you have to buy a property within two years You can come here you can rent a place.

A highlight from Conversations2 with Greg Bennett

"Hi Greg. Hello. I tell you that you don't need an introduction, however there may be, sorry that's a terrible way to bring you on, now I've made you all shy, I feel that some people may have not heard of you before, which I find unbelievable, but it is possible, it is possible. I find it very believable. So Greg please can you tell me, or don't tell me, tell everyone else a bit about yourself. Sure. So I'm Greg. I founded and lead the conversation design practice at Salesforce. My team and I currently are leading the fray with all efforts around large language models and our product called Einstein GPT. We focus very, very strongly on prompt design, prompt engineering, and anything that we're sort of shipping in the product is being driven by my team and our prompt design process. My academic background is in linguistics, so a lot of what you'll hear about in terms of my philosophy and approach to conversation design and conversational interactions is driven by that academic foundation. Other fun facts about me, I, let's see, enjoy songwriting, so very much into the writing of lyrics, occasional with production, although I'm not very fond of my own compositions, very big pop music enthusiasts, so if you hear me make sort of pop culture references here and there, that's also the motivator behind that. Cool, and who's your favorite songwriter? Oh, hard question. I know, hard question. We're starting off with a hard question. Okay, in English, my favorite songwriter, and I think, so I think, like I said, I'm a very big fan of pop music, and so I think very much about pop sensibilities. Probably my favorite, oh, that's so tough, because I like a bunch of songwriters for different reasons, but I would say the one who I really am like just deeply, deeply impressed by as a pop songwriter is Mariah Carey. I think she doesn't get enough credit for her songwriting skills, and she can put SAT words into pop songs that make, and make them sound like butter. Like, you'd never know that the word disestablishmentarianism fits into a pop song so smoothly until she does it, so whenever I write a song and put a big word in it, and it sounds good, I'm like, all right, that's for you, Mariah. Yeah, cool. Yeah, she's, I mean, I think with all music, you know, it's like people feel passionately, so they either love or hate a lot of songwriters, but she, you know, the fact that she's a great songwriter, and also with that voice, she's got like five octave range or something, it's incredible. Yeah, exactly, it's, and I mean, she obviously gets, you know, the praise that she deserves for her pipes, and I think that I'd also like to sort of elevate and say, you know, let's give her some praise for her pen, too, because everything that she's produced, she's written, so it's great. Yeah, incredible, and Christmas wouldn't be the same without that song. It wouldn't, yeah, and how hard is it to write a Christmas song, you know, I mean, not often do Christmas, you know, new Christmas songs get added to the canon like that, so. Yeah, cool, all right, so you gave a solid answer to the hardest question, so the rest of this is going to be easy. Yes, exactly, and now I'm really ready. Cool, okay, so I'd like to start with a few easy ones. We've actually done one already, but I've got three more prepared, which I would love to hear your responses to, so are you ready to give me fairly succinct answers to these questions? Yeah. Cool, cool, so please, Greg, what's your favorite bot, and it can be any bot from any context? So there's a cartoon from, I want to say the late 80s, maybe even early 90s, called Outlaw Star, and it's this sort of space odyssey, and the ship that they fly is essentially sort of managed by this bot called Gilliam, and the reason why I like Gilliam is because Gilliam takes on, it's, Gilliam's very multimodal, so he takes on different shapes and can maneuver certain things in the ship, and I think it speaks a lot to being able to sort of associate a bot with something physical, so big time Gilliam. Excellent, I've never seen this, but I'll check it out. Yeah, yeah, cool, I've been watching Cowboy Bebop recently, and I'm getting really, very, yeah, similar, yeah, Cowboy Bebop, yeah, Cowboy Bebop is, like, from like a narrative perspective, just much better, much tighter. Outlaw Star is very similar in terms of the whole space odyssey theme, but the narrative's a little less tight. Okay, okay, cool, but yeah, it still sounds totally up my street, so nice one. Yeah, love it. Cool, and number two, please, Greg, what is the most useful thing you use at work, and it can be anything. My calendar, hands down my calendar, because I think without it I would be totally lost. I would miss meetings, I would be late to all my things, I wouldn't really know what's going on, so I think that my calendar is probably the thing I depend on the most to keep me where I'm supposed to be. Okay, and do you use, I guess, are we talking digital, or are you old school? Yes, digital, because it changes so quickly that if it were old school it would just be like a bunch of chicken scratch, and these days meetings will get added to my calendar, like 10 or 5 minutes before or as it's happening, or things will get moved around, so definitely Google Calendar to my rescue. Okay, cool, cool. I think, yeah, it's basically like, I think for everybody this is a fundamental now, like we have to be so tight with our calendar, and yeah, always in the background.

"odyssey" Discussed on Innovation Now

"Since its launch in 2001, Odyssey has looped around Mars, more than 94,000 times. This is innovation now, bringing you stories behind the ideas that shape our future. Traveling a distance of 1.3 billion miles has required careful management of the fuel supply on NASA's Mars Odyssey orbiter. Because the spacecraft doesn't have a fuel gauge, engineers have to rely on math to help Odyssey continue its remarkable legacy. Odyssey doesn't need a lot of fuel on any given day. Solar panels power its systems, and three strategically placed reaction wheels help the orbiter point its science instruments. The hydrazine is used to power thrusters that counter the reaction wheels, enabling the spacecraft to stay in orbit around Mars. When fuel estimates were calculated last summer, the math seemed to show that Odyssey was running out of fuel faster than expected. Months of investigation ensued to study the mystery of the missing hydrazine. The team discovered that heaters along a fuel line connecting the tanks were throwing off their results. After refining their measurements, engineers are convinced Odyssey has enough fuel to orbit Mars through the end of 2025 or longer. For innovation now, I'm Jennifer pulley.

"Made Some new macbook pros and it wasn't that everybody hated them. But it was that it was divisive and the the backbone pro had very strong opinions in the design. It had the keyboard that was very thin. People thought it was very clunky. Other people loved it so then they spent three generations of of macbook pros. Quieting the keyboard down because it was a significant portion of their audience. They're buyers were like this too loud too loud too loud. It feels too much pills too much too much until eventually they pulled the keyboard out of the macbook pro and put in a better one that ninety five percent of their people like when you are the sole supplier of something you cannot make something divisive because people don't have anywhere else to go and within the realm of apple we're talking about here is most people use it because they enjoy the operating system one manufacturer of the actual devices. So if they make a computer that you don't like guess what If you want to continue using mac. Os you're going to hold onto an old one or you're going to just live with it and that's not a good thing. If they make something that is divisive it may have done all the good things that they doubted. And i'm sure it. Did you know they. Based their decisions on studies that showed that the keyboard was more stable et cetera et cetera et cetera. But the problem was too many of their fans thought that it was the wrong decision and bash them for years over it. There is no other supplier of odyssey if that makes any sense yeah no totally. So i feel like they're there really needs to be a lot of carefulness amongst the writers producers directors et cetera et cetera. The people making decisions that they don't produce something divisive because you don't want your fan base being split in half or even in a third in this case i mean the average rating on the ridell revelations terrible. It's terrible it's eighty five for part one. Eighty four for two and seventy four for par-three be okay in in the world of odyssey ratings on. Aol wicky ninety percent is like an average episode. So when they're dropping down to seventy five percent that's what you call and who would have thought that an episode featuring the return of tasha would have such a low rating right exactly. I was something that fans have loved. And i really think it's not at the story's bad necessarily it's just there's enough in it that people find it divisive. Nobody has sort of just kinda opinions on it. It's either oh it's great or its own it's terrible and there's too high of a percentage of people who think that it's terrible so we can move on now but that's kind of popped into my mind. I'm just like amazed over here. Popped into my mind because was listening to all these podcast during that timeframe.

"And cops never figured out who did it. It was assumed it was just some you know punk kids from the from the neighborhood. Nobody was ever caught but they came in through a release small window in a bathroom With a crowbar climbed in. And so you know. I know what that feels like to have somebody in your house you know and so. I don't know something about this. When i really really liked as kinda creepy but yeah. It was the entire sensitive. Feels like oh this is alfred. Hitchcock odyssey Maybe that's why you know you had to have wooten there to kind of lighten things up here and there like the recurring theme of having a jackson comment on the show and all of his comments were like really snarky. Hin stuff in in and wooten still reading them then. Apparently at the end he's like and jackson says i'm not gonna read anymore jackson's comments at the end to he is he says to. Connie he was in your house. He ate a mango. Yeah i actually really liked to wooten in this one like it felt like i don't know i felt like old wooten for a little while. Maybe because penny wasn't there oh old lukin what do you mean by old wooten. I just feel like he's not he's not quite the i don't know he's not quite the same character as it used to be interesting. Only major chain of noticed in wooten was when the guy who invented the character when he stopped writing him. I feel like that was the only time will never changed. And i have never. I've never had the sense. He's changed since then. Tory martin. Yeah that's that's he was far more Out there i guess when when tori martin was writing his his stuff but when tori martin stopped writing for odyssey. I i started to get sense. Oh who kind of mellowed a little bit. And then since then. I haven't really picked up on any changes but that's not really noticed anything. Still pretty goofy. Yeah yeah in some ways he is i i. I don't know. I think even before penny started coming around he. I don't know there was just something about him a little more. He didn't take himself as serious. And then he got to the point where he was a little bit more serious and then even more so now with with penny involved. I don't know i mean. Just think back when he just out of the blue takes connie out to the was it a carnival or circus or something like that and they just spend the whole day eating final cake and riding rides..

Everything from heavy breathing to You know how you would hold your body and contorted and twist your lungs and everything by doing so like i would often hug myself after getting like a big punch kick out of me and like trying to like shaming trying to pull myself up when try like just after getting thrown through a wall. There's a lot to getting back to bigfoot. You know all the odyssey actors get the script shortly before they're recording. So what was your reaction upon reading the revenge of bigfoot script a little the scenes just like you know with him is good buddy like how they would often just like you know debate over those comics and like you know you know just how it starts with all those like you know little nuances and then suddenly. Bigfoot is involved and then You know you go on this crazy journey and then it ends on a very very good message. i mean obviously that's know you know what's expected of good storytelling but the way that know. Bigfoot did it as well as it brought up some really good a themes and thoughts on the issue surrounding you know what is real and what is fake especially in the realm of like science and facts Very true so yeah. Yeah so when as you been reading the scripts you're someone who's writing now I'm gonna give you a chance to brag on our writers adventures. Odyssey that you that you notice in the script..

In fact we heard you recently had final exam week. College college is a busy time for a lot of people. How do you balance your schooling with your acting. And how'd you get in your exams. Well so far. All i know is i've got three my exams. Back as and bs. That's sorta ranged so. Yeah but on the topic of You know balancing it with acting and so forth. i've just learned.

"Odysseus in athena kind of this interesting moment because she kinda he. He's pretty much like. Oh yeah fina i remember. You helped me out a lot during the trojan war for insurance right now. Is that whereas all you a familiar. Yeah so you troy because you helped us out a lot and then didn't see you for about ten years. Lot's happened since then. So what's the deal. What's good and she's like all pows daddy. I was distracted at all that. Don't worry about it. I was mad because little ajax raped. Cassandra my temple. And then i was like you know what i'm not helping greeks anymore and then ten years later and let you know what odysseas ena guy. Maybe i'll help them out. I'll throw him a bone and this is something like oh died makes me feel real good insane and before you go much further. The funniest part with that is just that whole argument like you know. I've i've always been on your side but have you because at this point. This is pretty mad. Why don't you don't questioned the authority of the gods unless you're pretty mad and but luckily so is and she's like buddhists that armor while you're still okay right now and i'd be like yeah you know you said you're gonna keep me. Kim's trojan war wasn't been ten years. And i feel like you weren't there that range in this homers kind of evoking. He's expecting us to know certain things. And he's expecting us to know what happened in between the trojan war and the odyssey and during that this is when when the whole incident with ajax the lesser happened is right about when he ended up stabbing polyphemus. So it's important to note that the gods of the greek mythology. They're not omnipotent there. They are all knowing when they're focused but if they're distracted and they're not focused on you then they're not there to help because she would have been there and i'm like hey maybe don't tell them your name but she wasn't there.

Yeah they don't need to know that because then they're going to be scared to go to the whirlpool and then we're all gonna die. I do win. When seriously told him this he goes. Okay what if. I thought it. And she goes he does say that. Wow say wow i off while odysseus okay. You don't just go fighting mosser's it's not true anymore. Okay were you gonna do put a giant wooden horse or it's not gonna work just got six heads. Okay and she's a mortal and she's immortal. Why because i cursed her. He doesn't say that part.

"Is she dead. And that's what homer is doing. He's like you know. I'll give you some clues. i'll let you guys know that some of its there but at the same time you have to decide how much of it's true is some of his stretch. Did he really see heracles. Did hairclips really say you. what you sack troy. That's almost like killing the hydra. No like the. I is that true. I don't know because it is a little weird that he's sitting there on a platform away from god's or from the spirits and then all of a sudden he's seeing tant allows and seeing the punishment of sisyphus and all these other things and then he's like i dipped out real quick. It seems a little weird. Yeah but also liens it. They're also the the parts where he purposely says. I couldn't be blamed. I went to sleep. You know and because he does go to sleep quite or his his His his crewmates that when against his wishes the sweeping part. That's actually. That's an element of the forgetting that i wanted you guys to see so. That's another part. I wanted to go into anytime time that something has come up. It's due to the the memory aspect of it. That's the biggest theme so one thing that we've seen athena do twice now to help them. Cope help penelope and His son actually cope with the loss or the the anxiety as she puts them to sleep. So right away homers leading us. Now keep this in mind for later. This is the same as forgetting and then all of a sudden here is odysseus on three different occasions in this book. He has said this book itself but the whole like actual work of art is said how he longs to start seeing the the landmarks of ethica. He can't wait to see it and then he gets to where he can see the fires and then he goes to sleep and by mentioning that earlier. This is important because it's letting us know. Hold up you're forgetting your city. You're forgetting your people right now and we'll see that he does this a lot. There's also went the first time when he actually makes it home. He utters three. Words are the words that he always says On three different places so he only says it on the first time where he lands on famous island where he says. Is this a place of zenia. Are they savages or will they welcomed me and give me gifts. He says that there and then the next place he says it is with the fishing's and he i think says there and he makes it back in and he doesn't know he's at ithaca that's the first thing he says so immediately the audience tunes in he has these little like little sleeper phrases. That the first time like okay got it. That was kind of a interesting and the second time you're like okay. Maybe that's starting to get a little bit more important and then the third time we like. Okay something big's come and this is where we start tune in songs. I had no and interest. The i say this every single time. I'm sure probably gets old but this is just the genius and he's just flexing right now. This is this is poetic prowess. This isn't a timeframe. I've said this before where.

The gaza begin at wants to show signs and wonders among us for the highs of the cattle crawled about and the joints upon the spits began to low like cows and the meat whether cooked or raw kept on making noise just as cows do for six days. My men kept driving in the best cows and feasting upon them win. Joe of the son of saturn had added a seventh day. The fury of the gale abated.

The son of saturn raised a black cloud over our ship and the sea grew dark it. We do not get on much further for in another moment. We were caught by a terrific squall from the west that snapped the force days of the mass so that it fell aft while all the ships gear tumbled about at the bottom of the vessel. The mass fell upon the head of the helmsmen in the ship's stern so that the bones of his head were crushed to pieces and he fell overboard as though he were diving with no more life left in him then jove let fly with his thunderbolts. And the ship went round and round and was filled with fire and brimstone as the lightning struck it. The men all fell into the sea..
