A highlight from The 4 MAIN REASONS This Bitcoin PUMP Will Continue!
"The market is absolutely pumping. You got Bitcoin at $28 ,400. And I guess the big question that everybody's asking right now is, is this another one of those fake pumps? Is this a real pump? Is it going to continue? That's what everybody's asking right now. And I think that's what today has actually got to be about. We're going to ask ourselves the question whether this is another fake pump or whether this pump is going to continue. And if it is going to continue, when will it stop? And if you want to understand whether this pump is going to continue, you need to understand the pump. In order to respect the pump, you need to understand the pump. So today, what we're going to do is we're going to understand what's happening. Where is this pump coming from? And when we understand the pump, we will understand whether this pump is going to continue or not. So that's what today's about. Let's do it. So nice to be back. So nice to be back when the bubbles look like this. You've got to ruin up 12 points. Josh, why does it say Sheldon is live? Ryan is live. So you've got to ruin up twelve point nine five percent that I've got some room in my portfolio. Two dollars sixteen. You've got roll. But look at Robert. Fourteen point four cents. I did tell you guys the other day to buy Robert at I think it was twelve cents. You got BSB up seventeen point one percent. You got Solana up. You got render up. We're going to go through all of the old coins today. What an amazing, amazing, amazing day when that when the bubbles are green. So we're going to do we're going to go through the pump today. We're going to start understanding what this pump is actually about. Why is this market going? And I think when you understand this pump, then you'll understand whether or not the pump is going to continue. I think that's what we need to come out of the show today. We need to understand whether this pump is going to continue or not. So listen, if you are new to the channel, quickly, quickly, quickly, subscribe, subscribe, subscribe to the channel.

A highlight from Eric Diaz's Journey From the University of Georgia to Coaching Rising American Alex Michelsen
"Welcome to the official tennis .com podcast featuring professional coach and community leader Kamau Murray. Welcome to the tennis .com podcast. We are here with Eric Diaz. You remember the name? Eric is son of Manny Diaz, coach of Alex Mickelson, Werner Tan, and right now has his own thing called tier one performance out in the Irvine area. Welcome to the show, Eric. How's it going? Thanks for having me. Thanks for having me. It's great to be on. Great to be on. So I interviewed your dad probably about 2 months ago. That was, you know, we were poking fun about him redshirting Ethan Quinn, you know, not choosing not to play Ethan Quinn later. You know he wins NCAA the next year. It was kind of like, what were you thinking, right? Yeah, one of those tough ones. Oh yeah, it was kind of like, did you think he wasn't ready? Was he, did he think he wasn't ready? Like, you know, you probably could have won NCAA twice. That kind of thing but you obviously came from good tennis pedigree. So, I guess the first obvious question was what was it like growing up with your dad being Manny? You know, because I, it's hard not to take work home, right? Let's just put it that way. You're a tennis coach and a child of a tennis dad. Yeah. You know, I don't know. I think anybody that's been in tennis for a long time knows it's kind of a lifestyle a little bit. You know, there's definitely being the tennis coach and kind of, you know, working toward things but it's also, I don't know, the sport takes so much of you that sometimes, you know, it just feels like, you know, it's second nature. It's kind of a part of it. So, I mean, growing up in Athens, growing up around Dan McGill Complex was always a treat. That was back when NCAA's were kind of always hosted in Athens. So, I got to watch, you know, all the college greats. I grew up watching the Bryan brothers get, you know, sadly then they were kind of pegging some of our guys in doubles matches but, you know, it was really cool being able to sit court side, watch those guys and then, you know, be able to watch them on TV a little bit later. Really cool. Really cool experience growing up. Now, from a junior career, did your dad coach you your whole career or did he hire private coaches to sort of teach you technique? Because I know, you know, coaching at a program like UGA, it is very demanding and sometimes the children of the tennis coach lose out to the actual players and the people who are paying. So, did he coach you? How was that? You know, he coached me. I think he tried to coach me but at the same time, he also didn't want to put too much pressure on me to like, you know, really play tennis and go in. So, he kind of let it be my own thing. I started, I actually went to Athens Country Club, great little spot on the outside of Athens. Alan Miller was the main coach there. So, he helped me out a lot. He actually, he was on my dad's first, you know, assistant coaching team where they won a national title. I think he paired with Ola who now obviously has been with USGA for a while. I think they played doubles and I think they won a doubles title as well. So, I think Alan was a part of the first team championship and then he was also, you know, he won a doubles title there too. I think he might have won two. So, I spent a lot of time around him which was also, it was really cool. You know, it was a guy who was a part of the Georgia tennis family. Athens is really tight -knit like that and so it's special to be a part of that family both, I guess, through blood and through, you know, the alumni. It's cool. Now, let me ask you, did you ever consider going anywhere else, right? I mean, successful junior career, one of the top players in the nation, tons of options. You know, it could be like, you know, there's always sort of the, oh, his dad's going to give him a scholarship, right? You saw with Ben Shelton, you know, Brian Shelton. Obviously, he's going to look out for his kid. Did you ever aspire to like go to another top program or UCLA or Texas or Florida? I think growing up, you know, because I got to see all those teams play. You know, I remember in 1999, I looked up this guy who, he played number one for UCLA. I don't know, this guy showed up. I'm a little kid and he had half of his head was blue and the other half was gold and, you know, UCLA was firing it up. They were really good at the time. I remember that was my dad's first national title in 99. And, you know, ever since then, I really, you know, I looked up to the guys. Every now and then, I got to sneak on to a little travel trip and, you know, I got to see what it was like. But, I mean, for me, it was always Georgia. I thought Athens was a special place, you know, getting to see the crowds that they get there and being able to kind of just see the atmosphere of everybody caring about each other. You know, it was cool looking at other teams. You know, the Brian brothers had the cool Reebok shoes, you know, the UCLA guy with the different hair. But at the end of the day, it was always the dogs. It was always Georgia. So, I was really lucky when I got to be a part of that team and I got to kind of wear the G that, you know, through my junior years, I was always wearing it, you know, but I guess it was a little bit different when you're actually, you know, on the team and representing. I think it's a different feeling. Yeah. So, if you didn't go into tennis, what else would you be doing? Like, you know, I didn't, you know, I'm obviously coaching now, but I didn't go right into coaching. I went to work into pharmaceuticals like marketing, sales, you know, finance. It's always, I always find it interesting to say if I wasn't coaching, I got my degree, I would be doing this. Yeah. You know, if I was a little bit more prone, I think to just loving schoolwork and loving studying, you know, everybody's always told me that I would make a pretty good lawyer just because I'm a bit of a contrarian. I like to argue. I like to challenge everybody that's kind of around me. So, I'm always looking for a good argument. So, I'll go with that. Everybody's always told me, you know, maybe you should have been a lawyer. You argue a Hey, lot. well, I'm sure, I'm sure your tennis parents, right? The parents of the academy probably don't like that one, right? They like to be in control. They have the last say and be contrarian. A lot of the time they do. A lot of the time they do. Yeah. So, you're sort of like stepping out, right? Out of the shadow and you're now on the west coast out there in the with Irvine area tier one performance and quite honestly, making your own name. I know you've had opportunity to coach Alex Mickelson as well as, you know, Lerner, Tan who are both like doing real well, both like main draw this year at US Open. Tell me about the process of moving way west. Yeah. And starting your own thing. Well, you know, it kind of started with, you know, I took that leap and I moved away from home for, you know, the first time because obviously being born and raised and going to school at UGA. I took my first chance and I went to Boise State and I worked under Greg Patton for a year who I'd heard great things about and, you know, all were true. He's a great guy. I thought it was a fantastic experience. So, I did that for a year and then over the summer, the UGA swim coach's son that I kind of grew up with, he was in Newport and so I kind of came to visit and then, you know, all of a sudden the opportunity to be coaching out here, you know, came about and, you know, I did my due diligence a little bit. You know, I looked at the old tennis recruiting pages and, you know, I'm looking at all the talent over the last like 20 years and, you know, statistically, you look at the list and you're like, okay, you know, if I'm in this area and I give myself, you know, the right opportunities and I, you know, learn how to coach properly, you know, I feel like I've had some pretty good experience from some good mentors. You know, then I kind of thought, you know, okay, maybe I can kind of control my own destiny out here a little bit and, you know, over time, it's taken a lot but, you know, over time, I feel like I did get myself some pretty decent opportunities. So, when you first laid eyes on Mickelson, how old was he? He was 12. He was coming out to some point place. It was the first place I kind of rented courts. It was this old rundown beat up club but beautiful. There were some trees there. Nobody wanted it. The courts were kind of run down and everyone's like, oh no, nothing there and I was like, I'll take it. So, you know, it gave me space. It gave me courts. It gave me the ability to kind of try and market. I made things cheap so I could get a lot of kids out there and try and get a competitive environment going and luckily, you know, had a good bit of talent out there where, you know, the kids kind of attracted the kids and I was this young coach, 23, 24 and, you know, over time, you know, people started to kind of gain trust and realize, you know, this guy isn't that bad. So, you know, over time, it kind of, you know, worked in my favor and, you know, everything kind of worked out. I eventually switched clubs to a nicer one and, you know, you move up. You earn your stripes. Now, when you saw him, did you initially see, you know, like super talent because he won our ADK this summer and, you know, it was full of Steve Johnson, Su -Woo Kwong. It was Ethan Quinn. It was other names, right? Kanee Shakuri. And Alex, okay, you know, he got the USTA wildcard. He's a young kid. You know what I mean? Like, sort of under the radar and then he wins the whole tournament in finals Newport on the grass like a week later. So, did you see it right away? Was he like a typical kind of 12 -year -old throwing his racket, having tantrums? What was he like at 12? Alex has always turned on tantrums. But, you know, when he was 12, he was good. But, you know, I'll be honest, there were a handful of kids out there that, you know, Kyle Kang, who's had a lot of success. I saw him. Sebastian Goresney, who Alex won doubles with. There were a handful of others and, I mean, Alex, they were, he was good. If I thought that he would be this good, you know, at this point, I think I'd I don't think I saw that. But, you know, you definitely see that this kid's capable of playing at a pretty good level while he's young. And then, you know, as the years kind of go and then as you sort of see him and his personality kind of develop, you kind of recognize, you know, this, you know, this isn't too normal of a 16, 17, 18 -year -old kid. And then, you know, sure enough, eventually the results followed, which was pretty fun to watch. Yeah, I mean, I felt it was interesting because he was here with like his friend. Yeah. You know, not even like a coach, trainer, physio, nothing. Like him and his homeboy. Yeah. He didn't look like he played tennis. You know what I mean? So, yeah, it was like, it was interesting to show up without, you know, completing against guys who are here with like coaching that they're paying six -figure salaries and who are scouting, right? And for him to kind of move through the draw, honestly, I mean, you know, maybe he split sets once. Yeah. It was actually really interesting. He's an extremely competitive kid. And so, you know, throughout the last few years kind of as we've traveled to some events and as he's gone to some like by himself, you know, the whole understanding is, okay, how well do you really understand, you know, your day -to -day process? How well are you able to, you know, nowadays, you know, with challengers, everything you can stream, you can watch. So, you know, both myself and, you know, Jay, the other coach that's here and helping him out, you know, we watch, we communicate. But, you know, at the end of the day, you know, it was one of those big decisions, okay, are you going to go to college or are you going to go pro? And he's kind of weighing those two things. And it's, you know, if you really think you want to be a pro, show me. And so it's one of those things, luckily, when he's young, you know, you have the, you know, it's kind of freedom. If he loses some matches, okay, you're young. If, you know, you win some matches, okay, great. You're young. So it's one of those things where, you know, we really kind of wanted to see, you know, what he's able to do sort of on his own. How well can he manage emotionally? How well can he, you know, create some game plans and stick to his day -to -day routines? And he, I would say he passed. And did he officially turn pro? He officially turned pro, yeah. Yeah. So I know UGA was going to be where he was going. I know he was undecided this summer, but UGA was going to, was there a little bit of an inside man kind of happening here, right? You know, I mean, you know, I think that, you know, I'll definitely say, I think he had some exposure to hearing about, you know, some Georgia greatness. I think that for sure. But, you know, I'll say it was his decision. Ultimately, I tried to not put too much pressure or expectation on where he was going to go. You know, I think Georgia has a lot to offer. So I think, you gone that route, I think it would be, you know, I don't think we can really fail if, you know, you're going and you're trying to be a tennis player and that's a place you choose. I think it's a pretty good place. Now tell us about Lerner Tan. I'll admit as a player that I hadn't had the opportunity to watch too much. I had not watched him in the challenges at all. But was he also sort of in the program at a young age or did he just sort of come later on? My partner actually, you know, kind of helped him when he was young because Levitt Jay used to be incorporated at Carson, which was kind of where Lerner kind of had his, you know, beginnings. He was a little bit more, I guess I'll say, you know, his talent was Federation spotted, I guess you could say as to where Alex was kind of, you know, the guy on the outside a little figuring his own way. Lerner was kind of the guy that everybody kind of thought was, you know, the guy. Right. And so, you know, it's been fun kind of watching him, you know, see his transition, you know, from juniors to now, you know, kind of becoming, you know, the top of juniors, you know, winning Kalamazoo the last two years and his transition. It's been fun to see. So, you know, I've seen a lot of him out of the last, you know, two and a half to three years. So it's been, it's definitely been a different transition. I feel like, you know, it's a little bit fire and ice there. You know, Alex is the fiery one screaming a good bit and Lerner is the silent killer. So it's, they're definitely different, which I think, you know, is pretty refreshing and it's kind of cool to see them both have success in their own accord. So tell us about Tier 1 then. So how many courts, obviously you grew up, I mean, like, you know, I started in the park years ago, right? In Chicago Park, right? And now I got 27 courts. But tell us about Tier 1 performance now. Where are you? How many courts do you now have? How many kids are you serving? Yeah, we're in Newport Beach right now, which is great. Weather's nice. We have, right now, we're running our program out of only five ports. It's not that big. You know, we take a lot of pride in just kind of being individually, you know, development based. I feel like if you're in our program, you're going to have, you know, a good bit of time from the coaches. You're probably going to have a chance to hit with some of the top guys. We try to be really selective with who we kind of have. Just because in Southern California, it's really difficult to, you know, get your hands on a ton of courts. There's so many people in tennis. There's only a few clubs now. You know, pickleball, even at our club right now, you know, pickleball is booming. You know, so many people are playing. It's keeping clubs alive, which, you know, I think is nice. But at the same time, I would love to see, you know, a lot of tennis courts and tennis opportunity. But, you know, it is what it is. Yeah, man, pickleball is definitely taking over. You see clubs getting rid of one court, two courts, and they think that it's not that big of an impact. But I mean, two courts really makes a difference in terms of being able to spread kids out, get them more time, get more balls and more balls at the time. But it's, you know, I think in tennis, if we want to fight them off, we've got to market better and we've got to grow, right? They're in this growth sort of stage and we're sort of stagnant, you know, so it's not like we're not leaving the club with a lot of choices other than to diversify, you know what I mean? Right. Yeah, yeah, yeah, for sure. So, let me ask you that. So, you've obviously had two kids that are going on. What do you tell that next parent, whose kid's 14, right, may get to see learner Alex come to the academy and number one, they want to homeschool, right, or ask you whether or not they should homeschool or B, you know, whether or not they should choose to go to college or, you know, turn pro. How are you advising parents? Because I get the question all the time. Should we homeschool, right? Should we do whatever? And I always, you know, the answer is always, it depends. Yeah. But what would be your answer in terms of homeschooling to train? Well, look, I definitely think that if your primary goal is to be a tennis player and I think, you know, if you're an athlete and that's kind of what you want to do, I think there's a lot of benefit in homeschooling just because, you know, it enables you to travel. You know, if I get to the ITF level, you know, I need to be able to travel. Those tournaments start on Monday and they go through Friday. So, you know, if I'm in a regular school, if I'm a high school kid, you know, that's a pretty difficult life for me to be able to justify or to, you know, be able to get my excused absences and stuff like that. You know, we're definitely big. You know, if you show me a 14 and under kid and I feel like I had pretty good experience in this just because I saw a lot of kids from the age of 12 to 14, you know, I got to see an entire kind of generation out of SoCal and a lot of them were pretty good. You know, the one thing I think, you know, when you're 12, 13, 14 years old, I think the primary thing kind of for level, obviously it matters how you're doing it, but I think the primary thing is the repetition. You know, I saw a ton of kids where they had a bunch of practices and I knew that that kid probably, you know, had 30%, 40 % more time than some of the other kids. And, you know, sure enough, that kid is more competent at keeping the ball in play. You know, they're able, you know, they've just seen and touched more balls. So, you know, they're going to make more balls. I think it's a balance. I think it really depends on the parents. I think it really depends on the kid. And I think it depends on the environment that they'll be in if they are going to be homeschooled. You know, I will say that, you know, we've had a handful of kids kind of switch from high school to homeschooled and they're in our program. But I feel like there's still strong social aspects in our program. You know, all the boys are tight. They compete a lot. They, you know, I feel like they get their social, you know, they go to lunch. And just kind of our standards are really high. I think this past year we had five kids that graduated that all went to IVs. So, you know, it's totally possible whether you're homeschooled or whether you're in school, I think, to, you know, kind of pursue academic excellence. I think, you know, just because you're doing one thing and not the other, I don't think that that necessarily, you know, takes that away from you. I think tennis can open a ton of doors. And I think I kind of, you know, we've kind of seen that in the last few years. I've seen a lot more tennis kids choosing IV ever since 2020, I feel. I feel like the IVs have been pretty hot, especially for some blue chip players, which I think, you know, if you look prior to 2020, I think the percentages took a pretty drastic jump, which is interesting to see. Yeah, you know, it's funny, you know, in some markets you see people playing for the scholarship and in some other markets you see them playing for entrance, right, into the Princeton, the Harvards. And one of the myths, like, I think if you think about basketball or football, right, the better basketball football players are obviously choosing the SEC, right, Pac -12, whatever that is. But in tennis, you know, I think that, you know, your academics and your tennis have to be, like, at the top scale to go, just because you're not like a bad tennis player if you go to Harvard, you know what I mean? Like, the kid that goes to Harvard or makes the team probably could have gone to PCU, right, or Florida or whatever, you know what I mean? And so it is interesting to see the number of people who say, yes, I've spent 30 grand on tennis for the past eight years and I'm still willing to pay for college, right, because I got into Princeton, Harvard, Yale, etc. But I think it's a big myth where, you know, the United States is so basketball focused, we see Harvard basketball as, like, okay, that's everyone that didn't get chosen by the Illinois, the Wisconsin, the Michigan. And it's not the same, you know what I mean? Yeah, it's different for sure. So when you think about, like, the Ivies, right, you see a lot of kids go to East Coast and you think about, you know, COVID obviously changed something with the home school, you know, sort of situation. People who never considered that it was possible were like, okay, well, we've been living at home for a year and a half and doing online studies, it's not that bad, you know, they're more focused with their time. Did you see more people from families who you thought would not have done it try it post COVID? Yeah, definitely. I think the really popular thing that a lot of people are doing now is kind of a hybrid schedule, which I actually really like a lot. At least in California, I don't know if the schooling system is different everywhere else. I know it was different where I was from. But a lot of these kids, you know, they'll go to school from 8 to 1130 or 8 to 12. And, you know, they have their three hours where, you know, I don't know how they stagger their classes and stuff like that. But I know that pretty much every kid at every school in SoCal is at least able to do this if they so choose. And so they're able to get released around 12 or something. And, you know, they're able to be at afternoon practice and get a full block in. You know, for me, that still enables you to get the hours you need on court and to be able to maintain some of that social. And, you know, if you become, you know, really, really good, I guess, okay, by junior year, maybe you could consider, okay, maybe I should take this a little bit more seriously, maybe I should go full time homeschool. Or, you know, a lot of these kids are in a place where it's, you know, I'm comfortable with my tennis, I like where it's at, I feel like it'll give me opportunity in college. My grades are great. And, you know, maybe that person's a little more academically inclined. And, you know, they want to have a career and they feel like tennis is that great stepping stone. Which I think is a really cool thing about our sport is it just opens a tremendous amount of doors. I feel like if you figure out how to develop and be a good tennis player and how to compete well in tennis, you can you can apply that to almost everything in life. Yeah. So you talk about opening doors, right? When Alex or Lerner were sort of deciding whether to walk through door number one, which is college, or door number two, which is which is obviously turning pro. Right. How did you advise them? You know what I mean? If I say, hey, you know what? Take a couple wildcards. If you went around or two, maybe you go to college. If you win a tournament, maybe you stay out there. If an agency locks you into a deal, right? Then, you know, they normally know what good looks like and they normally have like the ear of the Nike, the Adidas, right? Then you turn pro. What was your advice in terms of if and when, right? Yeah. For those who ask. Well, they were both in different places. I'm gonna start with Lerner cuz he's younger. He actually, you know, did a semester in college. You know, Lerner finished high school, I think, when he was sixteen, sixteen and a half. And so, obviously, your eligibility clock starts, you know, six months after you finish your high school. So, for him, it was, you know, he was so young, he didn't really have much pro experience at that time. You know, he did great things in juniors. You know, he won Kalamazoo. He got his wild card into the men's that year and then, you know, he played a little bit of pro kind of and then, you know, that that January, he went in and and did a semester at USC which I think was a good experience for him socially. He had some eligibility problems which, you know, only let him play about five, six matches toward the end of the year which was kind of disappointing and then, you know, he won Kalamazoo again and so, you know, that was the second trip there and then, you know, by then, he had a little bit more exposure with, you know, agencies and brands and kind of, you know, the stuff that you'd like to see that'll actually give you the financial security to kind of, you know, chase your dream and pass up, you know, the the education, I guess, for the time being. So, you know, I felt like that was really the security was a big was a big thing for him. You know, prior to winning Kalamazoo for the second time, you know, he still had Junior Grand Slams to play. He wasn't playing men's events. So, for him being that age, you know, it was, well, you know, I'm I'm not in a massive rush so why not get a semester in and I think he had a great time. He really liked it. I mean, he he speaks pretty positively about the dual matches. He actually follows college tennis now a little bit more. You know, he will talk about some dual matches which I think is pretty cool and you know, I think it gave him some confidence getting to play for university, getting to represent, you know, seeing that university promotes you. I think there's a lot of benefits there and now, you know, he's got an alumni base. You know, people talk about all, you know, he's a USC Trojan and stuff like that. You know, you see it at all different tournaments. You know, guys are wearing a USC hat and, you know, hey, learner, da da da and you know, I think that that's pretty cool to be a part of, you know, a big family of people who are proud that, you know, they can say they played in the same place and then Alex. Alex was, you know, he was a little old for his grade and he was one that he committed and, you know, the whole time him and learner kind of, you know, talking and, you know, about going pro and da da da da. You know, obviously, it was their dream. You know, I just kept telling Alex, you know, I don't want to hear it. I don't want to hear it until, you know, it's a real problem and so, you know, he gets to 400 in the world and, you know, it's what you do. You get to 400. You know, it's good but at the end of the day, you know, you're not, your life's not changing because you're 400 in the world. You know, so he's 400 in the world and he's, you know, saying stuff to me and I'm like, I could not care less you're going to college and then it was, you know, this was probably in January, February, you know, he starts to kind of do a little bit better and I think at that point, I recognized that he was better than a lot of the guys kind of at the challenger level. You know, just from my perspective, I was seeing kind of what it was, what it was to be 300, what it was to be 200 and I think at that point, like February, March, I fully knew that he was good enough to be there and to be winning those matches but at the same time, you know, having financial security, having set, you know, all of those factors that kind of go into whether I'm going to pass up my education and go pro. You know, it's a big decision and so I remember we were putting it off. I just said, you know, nothing till US Open. I was like, we're not, we're not talking about college till US Open. I said, you know, when we get to US Open, you finish US Open, you have that exposure, you know, we see what happens in those two weeks and then, you know, then we'll kind of make a decision but until then, like, don't even think about it. Don't talk about it. Don't care. You're going to school and I think that mentality really helped him kind of just play free. He was, you know, I'm not playing to go pro. I'm trying to do my job in school, finish my high school. I'm going to tournaments, playing great, just trying to compete and, you know, lucky for him, you know, well, I guess it's not lucky at all. That kid worked his absolute tail off but, you know, he had that success in Chicago at your club and then, you know, he made that little Newport run and I think by then, that was his third or fourth former top 10 win and, you know, he won his challenger. He final the challenger. He'd semied another one. He had kind of shown and, you know, some people have gotten attention and they started believing in him and so then, you know, that's when that big decision kind of came but I feel like for him, he really established himself, improved himself amongst pros which I think is an interesting thing because a lot of the time when you see these juniors kind of go pro sub 18, a lot of the time, it's because they had tremendous junior success which then made them, you know, they had grand slam success and stuff like that but Alex didn't have any of that. You know, Alex was kind of the late bloomer that, you know, in the last year when he was already 18 and aged out of ITF, the kid really just took it to a new level and, you know, I think he really showed that he's kind of ready for what the tour has to offer.

I got some breaking news for the NFL and crypto fans out there. There's some ways to make more money with crypto if you're a fan of fantasy football in the NFL like a lot of you probably are. Now, guys, unless you're under a rock, you've heard of fantasy football. Well, there's a crypto aspect to fantasy football, and that's draft kings. Draft kings have NFTs of every single player that you could draft. So if you play fantasy football and you see that random wide receiver, that random running back, you can draft that as an NFT. Well, there's a big, big injury that happened on Sunday. You maybe saw Aaron Rodgers. He got a career -ending injury, potentially career -ending. It's definitely season -ending. It's a bad Achilles heel injury, and he is out. Well, where's the crypto opportunity in that? Well, NFTs of Zach Wilson. Zach Wilson was the backup player for the Green Bay Packers. NFTs of Zach Wilson shot up from $69 all the way up to $555. Okay, that is an 8x. That's almost a 900 % gain right there. Sorry. No, it's 700%. That's almost a 700 % gain right there, folks. All right. Thank you, editor, for bearing with me here. Now, that NFT was for the elite version, and there's only 30 copies of those. So the less supply there is, the more value that these NFTs are going to have. So you don't want to go for the common or the uncommon if you're trying to flip NFTs. A lot of times, you just want to go for the rare for that hot, for that holy grail of the NFTs there. Now, what is the next opportunity, guys? Now, this was a huge, huge gain, okay? Going from $69, which is a pretty nice price, all the way up to $550, that's people would go crazy. A Wall Street guru, the world's best Wall Street trader, would go nuts for those types of returns. Well, guys, I think these returns can be had regularly, okay? Now, it might not always be a marquee player like, you know, Aaron Rodgers is in the backup, but sometimes, you know, running backs get injured all the time. Wide receivers get injured all the time. Other quarterbacks, there's, you know, almost 30 other quarterbacks that are, you know, worth their salt there. There's going to be tons of opportunities. Say your fantasy football team is doing terrible. You're horrible. You're in last place. You know you're not going to get in the playoffs. It's three weeks in, and you basically want to throw in the towel. Well, don't give up because there's a lot of opportunity with this DraftKings angle. All you have to do is just watch Sunday. Be the first one or two people to buy the NFT of that soon -to -be upgraded bench warmer, okay? Maybe it's a running back. Maybe it's a quarterback. Maybe it's a wide receiver. You don't know who's it going to be because we don't know who's going to get injured. There's going to be a lot of people maybe watching behind. There's going to be people FOMOing in later. There's going to be people maybe buying it an hour later. I want you to be watching the game, and I want you buying that NFT within seconds. Now, if you have a knowledge about football and you have a knowledge about crypto, this is a unique opportunity for you because not everyone is going to have your knowledge. Not everyone has your years of training being that armchair quarterback. You know, watching this channel, discovering crypto, figuring out how to get this wallet, figuring out what do you mean NFT marketplace, knowing what that means, knowing what your seed phrase is, having it written down, having all these things safe and having a roster of NFL NFTs that you can capitalize off of as there's going to be a lot of opportunity here. Sixteen weeks left, right? Seventeen weeks in the season. We got a lot of weeks left in the season. That's a lot of weeks of injuries. That's a lot of weeks of buying NFTs. And, guys, it's not just Sunday. We got Monday. We got Thursday. I think even Saturday night sometimes, so there's going to be opportunity. So if you're a football fan, turn it into an opportunity, a money -making opportunity. I'm not saying, you know, you're going to get paid 100 bucks an hour to watch football, but some people literally were paid hundreds of dollars an hour to watch football. Those that bought that Zach Wilson NFT and those that sold into the profit because that's going to be the key as well is spiked all the way up to 550 bucks. Guess what? Zach Wilson's NFT is now down. It's, I think, under 300. So you sell into the hype. You get in. You get out. There's a lot of opportunity to be made here, folks. I'm trying to give you financial freedom. So if you watch some football, you like NFTs, this is a great opportunity for you. That's all I got. DZ out. Let's discover crypto together, baby. You've been dreaming about the dress.

A highlight from 41: 2023 Predictions!
"Welcome to the Ultra Flex Football Podcast where we have fun with our friends while we talk about football and any anything else we wanna talk about. We're here for season two. I don't know if we're officially calling it season two but this is our second season of talking about NFL football. So, we're back. With me as always is Rob Green. What's up? And Ryan Wheeler. Howdy, howdy. Season two episode one is what it's officially gonna be titled and Tony, I told you not to talk so close to the mic, man. You like, blew out my eardrums there at the beginning but I just get excited. I know. You're so excited. You get excited so easily. We were talking about that before we like, actually started recording but anywho, uh so, we do that thing where we have an album and we split up the songs in the album and we try to get the song titles into the show as discreetly as possible. Sometimes not as discreet as we'd like to think we are but we're gonna give you our titles that way you know what to listen for. See how many you can catch. Just a little game within our show. My song titles, the album first of all is called Down to Earth by Jimmy Buffet. Rest in peace, Jimmy Buffet. It's his first album. Down to Earth. The songs that I have to get in are The Christian, LSD, The Missionary, and A Mile High in Denver. Rob, what do you got? Alright, I have the captain and the kid, Captain America, Ain't He a Genius, and Turnabout. Alright, and Sir Anthony. I've got There's Nothing Soft about Hard Times, I Can't Be Your Hero Today, and Truck Stop Salvation. So, we'll see if we can get all of those in. Uh most of the episode today is gonna be football. It's uh we we were doing some things during the off season to help pass time. Uh you know, Ultra Flex After Dark and having some fun with games and things like that but football season is here. Uh we're gonna be doing football talk here in a second where we're gonna pick our division of winners. We're gonna pick our Super Bowl, MVP, and then we're gonna pick week one games and then we'll have one game at the end. So, uh football, football, football. So, let's get it started with football talk. Just that really amps you up, doesn't it? Golly, that was good. It puts me in the football mood. It just, it feels like we're kind of, you know, whimsical, a little bit of uh goofy when we talk. So, I thought that was a good one for football, our football talk. Let's, let's start with, in my opinion, the less competitive conference which would be the NFC. Uh maybe you guys think differently. Um but let's go with NFC West. We'll skim over this if we all agree pretty quickly. Uh I'll go first. This one and then we'll just kinda alternate uh as we jump divisions but uh for me, the NFC West is the 49ers winning this division. Um I think they're the best team in the NFC. Any chance we can like we go NFC West that includes the that way for people that don't necessarily have the NFC West on the top of their head you're just gonna see that includes like the 49ers, Seahawks, Cardinals, uh Rams. Yeah, you just you just did it. Yeah, we can do it. Okay. Nailed it. Yeah. So, 49ers, Seahawks, uh Cardinals, Rams. For me, Cardinals, Rams are both gonna be pretty not so great. Comes out of the Seahawks and 49ers and I just think the 49ers are a better roster. Brian? Oh, it's next. Um I'm gonna go with the 49ers. I just think top to bottom, the roster is the best. Rob? Yeah, I agree but I wanna be different. So, give me the Seahawks. We hated on him last year. We picked him to be like what? One and sixteen I think cuz we thought they were terrible. Gino Smith's gonna continue his uh career turnaround, turn about. I don't know if I can use that here. And uh. And he's gonna lead them to a division title. Alright. They have the offensive weapons to do it though. They definitely have the offensive weapons. Maybe Brock Purdy isn't as good as he looked at the end of last year. We'll see. He doesn't have to be. They have Sam Darnold as the backup. I don't think that's why he doesn't have to be good but anyway. Yeah. I think he has enough weapons and Kyle Shanahan around him that will make him. Exactly it. Make him look good. Uh Ryan, I'll let you go first this time. We're talking about the NFC North. So, we got the Lions, the Packers, the Bears, and the Vikings. Who do you have winning that? The NFC North, I have the Packers taking that division. It kinda just feels like a crapshoot division honestly. I mean, I don't really feel good about my pick. I don't feel about picking any, good about picking any of those teams. So, I just want Jordan Love to be good because he's got an awesome name and quite honestly, that's that's how I came up with my answer. So, I was like, got the guy that has love in his name. I'm pretty sure from looking at this division, the odds are the closest bunch of four out of all the the division. Makes sense. So, it kind of is the most wide open division, I think. Who do you have? Yeah, who do you have picking, Rob? You know, our team last year was the Lions. So, I'm gonna I'm gonna bring that over to this year. Let's go with the Lions too. I don't even know the last time they won the division. Nineties probably. Early 90s, mid 90s. If they did then. I just don't know either. I think we'll find out pretty early AKA we're filming this on a Monday before the season starts. So, we'll find out in 3 days whether or not they'll be a pretty good team again which they have enough talent on the offense to put up points. It'll just. Yeah, what are we thinking like 60 points in that first game here with the Lions and Chiefs? It's gonna be a high score game. Probably, yeah. Yeah, no Chris Jones for the Chiefs and then the Lions don't really have much of anybody on defense. Um that means that yeah, they did what they took that linebacker. I can't think of his name right now. Um. The guy that everybody won the bills. Jack Campbell. Jack Campbell. Yeah. Yeah. Um but I agree. I have power on offense to be the best team in that division but I wouldn't would I be shocked if the Vikings or the Packers or even the Bears for that matter were to win it. Probably not. So, I'll go with the Lions. Uh the NFC East another compelling division. Got three and a half maybe. I don't know about Washington. Good teams. Um which the Cowboys, the Eagles, uh the commanders, and the Giants. Rob, who do you have winning the NFC East? Yeah, I like the Eagles. I think they're the best team in the NFC and I think they showed that last year. I think they'll do that again this year. Jalen Hurts continues his uh breakout. I won't say an MVP season but he could have another MVP caliber season like he did last year. Yeah, mine's gonna be the Eagles as well. I think their roster. While the Cowboys and Giants are gonna probably both win nine, ten games. I think the Eagles are just good enough to win eleven or twelve games and and win that division. So, Ryan, what about you? Yeah, I'm gonna be different and go uh Cowboys um not because I wanna be different but because I actually think the Cowboys are I think they have a better defense and I think their offense maybe not as good but I think they have a good offense and uh quite honestly, both these teams have pretty cake schedules. Um the Rob and I were talking about it earlier. Um sorry, we left you out of this conversation, Tony but the uh the Cowboys or I'm sorry, the the Eagles first was like seven games are the Patriots, Vikings, Buccaneers, Commanders, Rams, Jets, Dolphins, and then commanders again. It's like it's not that difficult. It could be six and one, seven and all. Yeah. And then the Cowboys was very similar. Like last year. So, it kinda feels like whoever wins this division is probably gonna win it with twelve. Twelve wins. Somewhere around there. Eleven, twelve. So, I just, I'm just gonna go Cowboys on that. That's gonna be a lot of my points in the AFC uh which we'll talk about in a second uh which is how hard all of their schedules are but uh last division um the NFC side is the NFC South. Could be the worst division in football. Uh we got the Saints, the Bucks, the Falcons, and the Panthers.

The thing about Karen Bass, just a couple of years ago, she was talking about how great it is that Los Angeles is a sanctuary city. So this continues to be the political own goal of the decade. Well, Biden said COVID shots are coming back, like it or not. People want someone they know can already do the job. President Trump has done the job. We have the best economy of my lifetime. Everyone was doing better. The border was secure. And now, in the ReliefFactor .com studios, sitting in for Mike today, here's Kevin McCulloch. It is an honor to be back for my good friend, Mike Gallagher, a colleague here at the Salem Radio Network, and also someone who cares very much about what is happening to our country. Kevin McCulloch is my name. You can find me on the Salem News Channel and many of the same radio stations on Saturday nights at 9 o 'clock Eastern with that Kevin show. If you're local in the New York area, you can listen to me on AM 570 each weekday afternoon at 3 o 'clock, AM 970 the answer each weeknight at 7. And we have a lot of fun. My handle across all social media at that Kevin show. Please be in touch with me. I love to interact on the top stories of the day. We've got a lot to get to this morning. Yesterday, one of the judges in the federal trials that is the former president is going to face in upcoming months set the trial date for March 4th. This is in the special case against President Trump that Jack Smith is bringing the U .S. District Judge for the District Tanya Chutkin. Remember that name? It will live in infamy. She's rejected a proposal by the Trump defense team that the trial began in April of twenty twenty six long after the election. She instead set the date far closer to the one proposed by Smith and the government who wanted it on January 2nd. And if you happen to be a criminal attorney, please dial me eight hundred six five five Mike eight hundred six five five six four five three. I'd love to have some validation on this, but one of the one of the broadcasts I do here in New York for AM 970 the answer focuses on litigative issues every Thursday night. And we just talk legal stuff. I'm not a lawyer. I'm fascinated by the law. I think that lawyers that that proves a faithful service to their clients and to the government are are valuable people in our society. But I think it's interesting to see this chess match being played to the public in a way as though lawyers wouldn't know what was really going on here. So let me kind of break it down for you. You had the indictment and the the perp walk and the cuffing and the fingerprinting and all the stuff that they wanted to do to try to embarrass forty five. They had their moment in the in the sun to do that. And then they come back and they say, oh, we're we're going to go to trial quickly. We're going to put you on trial on the second of January. And Jack Smith said, Judge, you've got to put them on trial on the second of January. And the Trump team said, no, we're going to ask for twenty twenty six. And the judge comes back and says, no, no, no, no, we can't give you that much time to prepare. We're going to make sure that you're ready for trial by March the fourth. Now, of all the dates and all the calendars in all the world, March 4th is the day that she just happened to land on. I'm just I'm just looking at this calendar and I'm just seeing of all the choices and options that I have here. And you know what? I'm going to go with March the fourth for no reason whatsoever. Except that March 5th happens to be Super Tuesday. And there's however many states, twelve, fifteen, sixteen states in it. I forget the number. It's one of the most important days of the election calendar. This judge, Tonya Chutkin and and the prosecutor in the in the in the Georgia case are both embarrassing themselves. Fannie Willis and Tonya Chutkin are both embarrassing themselves because their behavior begets kindergartners on day one of preschool. Like it's they're not even in the in the class yet. And they're already like goofing around. Here's what happens between now and March 4th of next year. The Trump team will do a number of things in all of these cases, but they're going to they're going to be filing mainly, especially in the in the state cases for a couple of things. They're going to want those cases moved out of the Georgia state realm and they're going to want to put them into the federal realm because the federal system will be one that's easier to to manage and to and to kind of go through. But beyond that, there are a boatload of motions that will be being entered into the record between now and then that they are going to do everything from filing a motion to dismiss to filing an extension for discovery. And let me just let me just tell you on this on this alleged interference in the 2020 federal case that Jack Smith is doing out of D .C. It's my understanding that there are more than 12 million documents. That will be entered into the evidence, and this Tonya Chutkin joke, this this judge, this this joke of a judge laughed yesterday when told by the Trump team that for proper discovery to be allowed, there's no human way that they could sit and read 12 million pages between now and March 4th. And she just kind of giggled like, ha ha ha. Well, you've already you already know a bunch of the stuff that's in there. Ha ha ha. Friends. We talked about this yesterday. The left is trying to systematically dismantle America and they're starting to let the evil be seen. Right. That was my theme yesterday on the show. We talked about it for three hours. This is another example of that. There's there's this kind of open knowledge that this judge is dismissing. The normal procedures that what would be accustomed to any other criminal defendant, they're not going to allow President Trump. Why aren't they going to give him the same rights and the same protections that they would give a serial killer or a gang banger or anyone else? They're going to have to. And if the judge continues this kind of embarrassing behavior, chuckling at the people that are involved, chuckling at the requests that are made. She's there's a there's a there's a circuit court that oversees this court. And those judges have authoritative roles that they play over the over the sitting judge. That's that's in the court. That is Tonya Chuck him. And if they don't want to be embarrassed, if they don't want to have their circuit embarrassed, they will advise their underling to comport herself differently. But I just find it amazing that we're supposed to buy all of this. This is this is the great lie. They sit here and they pull this stuff and they and they set these unrealistic dates. And by the way, I'm going on the record. They would not have made a January 2nd start date. They're not going to make a March 4th start date. You had it is law. His he has a right to an informed defense. He has he has a right to have his defense know every piece of evidence that's going to be introduced as it's introduced before it's introduced. If the if the prosecution has had twelve point eight million documents in their possession and the defense is just receiving and being made aware of what they're going to introduce. They have to have time legally to not only understand what every document says, but they have to process it and comprehend the implication of what that document has to do with within the case. And then they have to have the right to prepare proper defense of those facts. This isn't a kangaroo court. We're not in a kangaroo nation. There are still laws. And I know these Obama judicial appointees and the Biden administration and the Justice Department all think it's hilarious. What's going to be hilarious is when they get their teeth slapped back at them by their their their upper judges and maybe eventually the Supreme Court, because they're such lunatics with how they're proceeding at current pace. Eight hundred six, five, five, Mike, eight hundred six, five, five, six, four, five, three. Take your calls right now. Eight hundred six, five, five, Mike, eight hundred six, five, five, six, four, five, three. Do you think that Trump will be in court on March 4th, the day before Super Tuesday next year? By the way, some of his fellow Republicans think that he will be. Chris Christie, the shameful, shameful behavior of Chris Christie in recent days coming right back. It's the Mike Gallagher show. Don't go away. Left leaning activists are attacking Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.

"In the market, but you're not seeing it turn the S &P or even the socks in the way you want it. In fact, you're seeing just the opposite. Now, this could just be a one day move, right? But let's see what this one day means for investors as they think about their AI bets moving forward. Right. Or it could be a resumption of the previous three weeks in which there was a lot of weakness for the big winners, notably the big tech names. And of course, as we head into a seasonally weak period, there's a lot of questions about whether this is just kind of a precursor of what's to come. There you have the closing bells and it is read across the screen here. And we're pretty much at session lows for the major indexes. The S &P losing ground here by one point four percent. The Dow Industrial is losing one point one percent. The Nasdaq, the big loser of the day in terms of percentage of decline, one point nine percent loss. And the Russell 2000 small cap companies losing about one and a quarter percent. All right. Well, let's get a check on some of that. We're into it is doing in the after hours right now, having a little trouble pulling it up. But it is a reminder that earnings season is by no means over at this point. Guys, we're still getting plenty of companies reporting, including Splunk yesterday and into it right now. The company is saying that it sees fourth quarter adjusted earnings per share of a dollar sixty five, beating estimates of a dollar forty six. The company is seeing first quarter adjusted EPS of one dollar ninety four cents to two dollars. So that's within the range of estimates. That was one dollar ninety seven cents in the after hours. It is not moving. Fourth quarter net revenue coming in at two point seven billion dollars. That did beat estimates of two point six five billion dollars, moving a little lower unchanged in the after hours. Yeah. Stock is up on the year. It's up about twenty eight percent. So again, maybe in this environment, investors expect a little bit more. Talking about the outlook. Twenty twenty four revenue of fifteen point eight nine billion to sixteen point eleven billion. The estimate is fifteen point nine six billion. So it does look like it's giving some upside in terms of that.
A highlight from Real Estate Agents Complete Door Knocking Guide (Part 4)
"Welcome to Real Estate Coaching Radio, starring award -winning real estate coaches and number one international bestselling authors, Tim and Julie Harris. This is the number one daily radio show for realtors looking for a no BS, authentic, real time coaching experience. What's really working in today's market, how to generate more leads, make more money and have more time for what you love in your life. And now your hosts, Tim and Julie Harris. We are back. And actually we are picking up where we left off a week ago when we were talking about door knocking. And I have to say, Julie, the door knocking podcast series that you wrote has become one of our biggest downloaded and listened to podcasts. And now it's quickly becoming one of our biggest downloaded and viewed YouTube videos, which it is something door knocking and learning how to be a proactively generator is definitely something that everyone wants to know how to do, needs to know how to do, because really a lot of the passive lead generation stuff from social and from buying leads, it's had its day in the sun, all these passive ideas and as the economy changes, as the housing market changes, people are realizing they are going to have to actually get off their dust and learn how to be proactively generators and had to have real meaningful conversations with real estate perspective, real estate clients. And in doing so, and I know you're reading this as well from our people who email us and text us and all the rest of it, they're having more expensive, more expensive, right? They're having more success from that experience faster than they thought. They that they had no clue, frankly, that they're going to be able to generate so many leads so quick. Yes, absolutely. And here's the thing. This doesn't cost you anything. Right. And at the same time, there's so many added benefits. For example, of course, your skills are going to increase your ability to have really great, valuable conversations about real estate. That's going to get better and better with every conversation you have. Of course, we all know that most real estate transactions do indeed come from a face to face conversation about real estate. Most people will choose to work with the first person they talk to about their situation. Your job is to be that person. And another great byproduct of this, Tim, is that it creates a lot of lead follow up for these guys where also you have a high likelihood of setting your next appointments from. But, you know, really, all those things are the practical, tactical reasons you want to, you know, door knock or do any kind of proactive lead generation. But I'll say the biggest psychological mindset reason why is because a lot of agents right now, most agents right now are looking for a sense of direction. They feel the markets change. I mean, really, I don't know. Did I tell you this, Jules? They're originally they were expecting there to be five point five million home sales this year. And now they're actually projecting. I believe it's NAR that's projecting now it's only five million home sales. So five hundred thousand fewer home sales. But that's actually a million home sales fewer than last year or something like that. So you're talking about a very significant number of real estate agents who won't be doing real estate transactions at all. And a lot of the agents who are listening to us right now and are in the business have only been in real estate, frankly, for the last five years or less. And if you've not sold real estate for more than really 15 years, you've not sold real estate during a transitioning market, you're at an advantage and you're at a disadvantage. And the disadvantage is, you know, or the advantage is you don't have the battle scars, you know, so you don't have the bad memories of what that market's like. But the disadvantage is, is you don't know how different things really can be and how quickly they can change. And if you've been in real estate only in the really the last five or even 10 years, you've come up during a very sort of bizarre time in the real estate industry because there's been this advent of all this lead buying and team building and branding and marketing. These things really have hit their peak. Why? Because there was so much money that was in real estate, so many agents looking to spend money, so many agents not really understanding how to decide what they should spend their money on, if they should spend their money at all on anything. And so as a result, that's brought in a lot of these businesses that were venture funded. And, you know, I don't want to bore all of you, but the moral of the story is a lot of those businesses are washing out a lot of these ideas that never really worked in real estate, even in the best of times, are really going to prove out not to work certainly in a changing market like we're experiencing now. That's the reason every single one of you need to accept the fact that we're in a new market. And that's fantastic. There's going to be fewer transactions in most of the country. And that's actually not a bad thing either when you take into consideration that your biggest competitor, for the most part, isn't the seasoned grizzled veteran. Your biggest competitor is the other agent who just got their license or maybe the other agent who the seller might know because their kids played together or just some social connection. But as those types of agents who aren't really serious about the business get out of the business, the ones that have skills are actually they're absolutely going to clean up. That's the reason that during a market shift like this, you always see. Well, you see one or two things. You see new kings crowned, new queens crowned in the marketplaces. Those are the agents that were able to adapt to the new market, learn the new skills. They didn't wait around for the market to change back the way it was. They said, this is what it is. I'm going to make the most of it. And then sometimes you also see the agents who are at the top of the market, who are the actual dominant agents. They actually start to get more market share. So you could. But here's where it's interesting. It's fascinating. I have to be careful saying this because it offends some people, but it's still true. A lot of what happens in a market like this are the dug in grizzled teams and brokers refuse to change. They still try to carry their old way of thinking and their old expense structure into this new market. And when they do that and the new market essentially doesn't allow them to, frankly, make it work cash flow wise, they go out of business and they have to hit a hard reset on their personal and business lives. I'll suggest if you're in that bucket, if you're in that bracket, if you're realizing that you're essentially trying to model your business after something that worked in the past market, you need to take a seriously hard look at adapting very quickly to the new realities. Otherwise, frankly, you're going to most likely suffer needlessly. Don't wait to learn what I just said is true. Get ahead of whatever is going to happen next, because, guys, a million fewer transactions is a million fewer transactions. That's a lot of transactions that are leaving the marketplace. And a lot of you, again, have been buying your business and the quality of the leads. Have you noticed the quality, especially the buyer leads has really gone to pot? Well, that's just going to get worse as well. So please, please, please, please don't wait to experience hardship to realize what I'm telling you is true. Take action on all that now. So we're going to get back to door knocking. And this is the last part of our four part series. So, Julie, point number 13. Yes, part four point number 13 post on social media, especially on YouTube, a video of you starting to prospect a specific neighborhood. This should be you in front of the neighborhood sign or something recognizable about where you are. Share some fast facts and explain that you'll be there this afternoon, connecting with all of the neighbors and answering any real estate questions. Give your mobile number posted on all of your social media. And of course, you can refer to our podcast series about how to utilize videos for real estate agents. Now, let's I'm going to talk real briefly about this. First of all, YouTube is now migrating towards trying to be a little tick tocky. And so is Instagram. In other words, it's starting to give more priority to short videos, which is perfect because short videos don't have to be really produced at a high level. It's great. And what Julie just said, why are we telling you to do this? Because what's going to happen is as you're door knocking and getting to know the neighbors and essentially building your centers of influence and past clients, they're most likely going to do a little bit of googling on you to find out what your your story is. And so if you created a lot of these little short snippet, you know, tick tock type videos and they're on Instagram, they're on YouTube and maybe even on tick tock, what's going to happen is those search results will come up and they're going to see your very proactive in the community. You get it? So all we're trying to do is use the social to reinforce, use the passive, the social media to reinforce the proactive, which is you door knocking. That is closing the loop. That's creating a Web. Now, there is a way to do these videos. And Julie gave you some ideas. We also include in our premier coaching, which is free for all of you, a 12 month social media marketing plan. It's something a lot of you, frankly, are struggling with because you don't know what to talk about, what to do. And we give you a lot of great ideas, kind of model out your entire year what you should be doing. I just gave you some ideas right there. If you want to join premier coaching for free, you heard that right. For free, simply text the word premier to four seven three seven two. Text the word premier to four seven three seven two. Or you can always go to members dot Tim and Julie Harris dot com if you don't want to text or if you're outside of the continental United States. But the easiest way for sure is just to text the word premier p r e m i e r to four seven three seven two. And when you do, we'll text you back a link.

A lot of the things that we talk about on this podcast you get for free. So don't wait on this. This is a perfect time of year for you to be getting your skills 100 percent in alignment with this new market. So text the word premier to four seven three seven two. Remember, when texting message and data rates may apply. Yes. So back to point number 13, just for a second. So let's say that you went door knocking today in Oak Creek. You talked about it. You gave some fast facts. You let everybody know you'll be there this afternoon. Well, maybe this weekend somebody in Oak Creek is thinking about listing their property. One of the first things they're going to do is go to Google and say agents or realtors or real estate agents in Oak Creek. They want to know who actually sells that area. And guess whose video is going to pop up, assuming that you did point number 13. Well, you know, you're going to get me we're never going to move past 13. But this is really this is such a sweet thing that she just said. You all should do this experience or experiment. Go to your phone, go to open up Chrome, assuming you have that on your phone, and then do a search for Julius using Oak Creek. I mean, Oak Creek's a subdivision we used to sell in. But use the name of a subdivision in a community, like as if you were a buyer looking. And then what I want you to notice is the first ads that come up are the pay -per -click ads. And then after that, what you're going to see is usually in the second or usually the first, second or third search results, you're going to see search results from YouTube. In other words, you're going to see that Google is starting to give priority to these short little snippet videos that I just described to you, and they're prioritizing the videos above the normal search results. In other words, you're going to get primo search results. Why? Because they want people to click search results and they know people will click video search results, like at a 5 to 1 ratio, more than a textural search result. So you need to be doing these little short videos in conjunction with what you're already doing. Now, it's not enough just to do the video. You're going to have to use a system like the one Julie and I use is called vidIQ to make sure you're getting all the YouTube SEO stuff right. You have to title it right. You have to put in tags. It's all very... None of that's hard, though. Oh, it's super simple. I mean, frankly, if you and I know how to do it. Right. And vidIQ is so cheap, I don't even remember how much it costs. There's a free version. OK, there you go. And we're not we're not affiliated with vidIQ. It's just vidIQ. And then it'll tell you essentially how to make it so that your videos get higher placement. The key is always to have very drilled down titles in your descriptions saying today I'm door knocking and getting to know the neighbors in Oak Creek subdivision nothing and a lot of you know, you don't need a lot of blithering and blathering, just very three or four lines. And then you want to put your links. You want to if you'd like to contact me about home for sale in Oak Creek or if you're thinking about selling your home in Oak Creek and then give your cell phone number, things like that. And what you'll find is you'll start generating leads from your YouTube. But what you're really trying to do is close the loop. Door knock. Hello. Hi, it's Bob at my door. Bob's here to provide me some information about recent home sales. Bob's, you know, very nice, very approachable. I like Bob. Bob's great. He's obviously trying to do a great job getting home sold in our community. Well, I'm more curious. I'm curious about Bob before I actually want to further my relationship with him. I have my phone in my pocket. I pull it out. I Google Bob's name, but I find Bob's actually very proactive. You guys get it. This is all free. Every single thing we told you how to do so far is free. Yes. And the super cool thing about doing the video in addition or in conjunction with your actual door knocking is that that video is going to live on and the search results will live on. So it gives a boost to that door knocking. OK, point number 14, door knock the neighborhood prior to all of your open houses. Again, give out a flyer with the stats for the neighborhood and add your home brochure for the home that you'll hold open. Ask who they know who you should invite to the open house. Ask permission to place your directional signs in the yards. And don't forget to ask, who do you know who could use my help buying or selling real estate? Well, let me give you a little bit of an enhancement to this. Now, this will work pretty much in all price ranges. But what our best age we have agents that are making, you know, millions of dollars per year. One of their primary lead drivers is doing exactly what we talk about. One of the things you want to do, it works sometimes unbelievably well in certain neighborhoods, usually more expensive neighborhoods realistically. But one of the things you want to do is you want to have a neighbors only open house prior to the main open house. And so what you can do is you can go and door knock the neighbors, invite them to the open house, and then by inviting them to the open house, you're going to maybe have the open house, the normal one for the public open from one till four, where you're going to have the neighbors only open house from, say, you know, 12 till one or something like that. What you're doing is you're just showing that you're more proactive and you're getting to know all the neighbors and the neighbors are going to think, you know what? This gives me the opportunity to go through that house and look in their garage and see if they ever gave me my mower back or my, you know, search for that search for the missing, you know, whatever, see if my neighbors accidentally snatched it. That's a bad joke, but you guys get the point. What we're really trying to do is position you, put you in. You're now door knocking. You're now having conversations. You're now delivering value to people. You're now being the person you want to be and you're working in the communities you want to work. You're actually doing real work of real estate. How does that make you feel? How does that make you feel versus, say, for example, working on your CRM more or less confident? How does that make you feel knowing you're having direct conversations with people versus, say, building a big funnel that hopefully maybe you're going to spend a bunch of money trying to get people to go into so you can drip on them door knocking, having real proactive conversations. It immediately energizes you, immediately makes you more in alignment with your highest and truest purpose in this planet, which is being of service to other people. Point number fifteen. Yes, and number fifteen is a mindset point. Believe that door knocking works and it will work. How you speak with someone when you're prospecting is greatly influenced by how you're thinking about what you're doing. Napoleon Hill said, what the mind can conceive and believe it can achieve. You'll have more energy and enthusiasm when you're all in versus I'm going to try it out or I'll see how it goes. I'm just going to do this for one day and see whether it works or not. So believe that it's working. Be consistent about it and your your attitude about it will cause you to have better results. And also with regards to that, when you're door knocking, use the scripts that we give you. We talked about those a little bit on the first couple of shows of the series, but obviously these are all waiting for you over on premier coaching and all of you are ready to join premier coaching. Don't wait. Just text the word premier to four seven three seven two and you can join right away. Remember when texting message and data rates may apply. Yes. Now our final point, number sixteen is number sixteen in a four part series because it's a bit more advanced. It's also one of my favorite points about door knocking. You can create a neighborhood directory as a way to get everyone's contact information and connect the community. This can be digital and or hard copy. It's a great excuse to door knock and you're providing value to the community. You can include a map of the neighborhood, phone numbers to the utility companies who service the neighborhood and a section for other recommended providers like the sprinkler guy, a pool guy, a painter, a dog walker, a babysitter. And of course, your real estate ad with testimonials will be in that section as well. Or you could put it in the back cover as directory sponsored by Bob Smith of Exp Realty, for example. This is why hard copy is nice. It stays in their kitchen with your information on it and they use it all the time. They're not going to throw it out. This is such a huge idea when you do it well. And of course, Julie and I did this as well. And yes, we could have leaned into one of those online portals. What was the one that was in Georgetown, like nextdoor .com and they provide. But they're keeping all of that pertinent information behind a paywall and you're not in control of it. So really, what you want to do is there's a couple of different ways to go about this. I would say you'll experience, again, depending on the price range, you're going to experience 50 percent of the people are going to be very apprehensive about giving their information out. So here's the move is you want to essentially create a fill in the blank flyer and the fill in the blank flyer has no required information. Now, you can have an address associated with a name. You don't have to have their permission to say one, two, three Elm Street is lived in by Bob and Betty Jones. Right. You can do that. All their other information, they have to decide whether they want to share it, their phone numbers, their email addresses, whatever else it is. So you will door knock and you will say we're putting together a directory as a community service. And this directory is only going to be given to people in the neighborhood. It's not going to be shared any other way. It's only going to be in print format. It's not going to be a digital format. No one's going to be able to essentially email it or anything like that. So you don't have to worry about any nefarious marketing that might happen as a result of it. This is just for the neighborhood. In addition to that, we're going to include a list of the service providers. So if you've got any on the same fill in the blank thing, who is your favorite babysitter? Who's your favorite roofer? Who is your preferred landscaper? Who is your preferred all the rest of it? Right. If you're from Columbus, Ohio, like where Julie and I are from, who's the best, most reliable person that's going to show up in the middle of the night and move the 14 feet of snow off your driveway, all that sort of thing. Right. Give them the babysitters, all these types of things. But that's really valuable. You know, I mean, how many times do you, oh, I got to go Google that and then I've got to look at reviews and I got to sift and sort all that out. What if you knew, and we talk about this all the time, that when somebody needs a service provider, what do they do? Who do I already know? If I don't already know somebody, I'm going to ask a trusted friend or advisor. I'm probably going to ask a neighbor because they're going to know who services the community. So this is a really valuable thing for you to put together. That will have shelf life. And of course, you can sponsor the back cover. You can include yourself in the service providers. There's lots of ways you can work this. And so you can you should do this. This is just thinking big here. You should do this every year. Now, when Julie and I did this, what we did was we do it. Actually, I don't think we updated it every year. I think we updated it like every 18 months or 24 months. But it was it was obviously completely voluntary. At first, people were apprehensive and then they felt left out. They had FOMO if not being in the directory.
A highlight from NEW COVID VARIANT HERE NOW!! (What will crypto do?!)
"I think we all know that this video is going to be shadow banned and probably going to be removed by YouTube. But I'm going to speak my mind here and I'm going to show you what's actually going on because there is talk of a new COVID variant and I want to show you what's going on so that you're up to date and you know exactly what's happening. I know you think I may be blowing things out of proportion, but just just have a look here and tell me what what you make of this COVID is making a comeback this summer. So many of us would like to leave it in the past, but cases are once again on the rise. So when will new booster shots roll out? And Thompson asked the CDC director. So COVID is on the rise, but when will the new booster shot be out? Does that remind you of anything? Does that maybe remind you of of the old COVID, the old COVID lockdowns? What's going on here? What are the what are the the the motives here? Why is this coming back and why is this coming back right now? Is there actually a new variant? What is it all about? We're going to speak about that. We're also going to speak about Bitcoin because look, Bitcoin's under the 26 ,000 level. It's not really an emergency just yet, but the real like emergency I would say is if you look at total three, which is the total alt market cap, excluding Bitcoin and Ethereum, and that is now back at levels of just after the FTX collapse. So this is where the FTX collapse was. And if you look at where total three is, this is where total three is. It's the same levels as it was just after the FTX collapse. Now, the question is, what is the future of of this altcoin market? What's it what's it going to do? What's it going to do in the near future? And speaking of COVID, if you look at the Bitcoin RSI, which is the sentiment indicator on Bitcoin, you can see that the RSI are so oversold that the last time that the RSI were oversold is here at this previous COVID low, which where Bitcoin was 3 ,875. So I mean, is this a coincidence that the two COVID lows are or the two RSI lows was at the previous COVID pandemic, beginning of the previous COVID pandemic? And this one again is at the beginning of the new COVID pandemic. We're going to talk about that. Also, a big day today on the NASDAQ, because today we have Nvidia reporting results. You can see Nvidia has had a huge tear this year. I mean, a lot of people actually talk about this rally being the AI rally and the stock that has led the AI rallies in video and they're reporting earnings today. If the earnings if Nvidia's earnings beat forecast, then NASDAQ rallies and probably continues to rally towards an all time high. disappoints If Nvidia today, then we probably see a 5 % correction in the NASDAQ. And then you're going to get the bears coming out and saying that this is we're entering a bear market. So big day today on the NASDAQ. Also, we're going to cross over to BRICS to see what's happening in BRICS. I know that Vladimir Putin spoke. He spoke about the dollarization. The Brazilian prime minister spoke about the dollarization. So we'll touch on that. And then I'm going to show you some tokens that I'm actually looking to buy. Now, I want to just say I'm not buying yet. I'm getting ready to buy. I'll show you what the tokens are and why I'm getting ready to buy. And I know you're probably looking at this and going, are you crazy talking about buying tokens when the market's like this? But that's what I'm going to show you. I'm going to show you my rationale and my thinking. So lots to do today. Let's get in. How scary to think that the IRS is actually back at pre -COVID levels, that the sentiment is actually back at pre -COVID levels in the last time that this happened, Bitcoin was at three thousand eight hundred and forty dollars. And I think we then had a rally of seventeen hundred percent. Yeah, sixteen hundred seventeen hundred percent rally after the IRS eyes were this low. So I wonder if the pattern is actually going to repeat itself. Also, I wonder if we're going to get lockdowns again. I wonder what the motives are. In fact, I don't wonder. I'm going to show you what I think the motives are for this this new whisper of COVID lockdowns about a year and a bit before the elections. I mean, look, it's definitely coincidental. There can't be there can't be anything else to it. It has to be coincidental. So we're going to talk about that. We're going to talk about the Binance FUD, because I think that's that's something we talk about. Yeah, lots to talk about, lots to talk about. So listen, if you are new to the channel, obviously subscribe, subscribe, subscribe to our channel, the fastest growing major channel in crypto. If you have been here for a long time, you know the show is going to get shadowbanned. I know the show is going to get shadowbanned. We spent the whole morning deciding whether we wanted to actually talk about that. And we decided that we would rather bring you the truth and not get censored. And if we lose views or if the channel takes a bit of a knock, so what? And the only way I can you can help me get out of this is smashing the like, putting positive comments and helping us get completely, completely, completely unshadowbanned. All right. So let's get into the meat and potatoes of the show. So, yeah, let's quickly look at this. So we've got Sheldon was showing me the Bitcoin chart today, showing me something quite scary. I don't know if I if I actually believe him, but he says, look, if you look at where this rally in twenty seventeen, the rally that took us out of this started, you can say the rally in twenty in twenty eighteen actually started in, say, twenty fourth of December. If you look at where this year's rally started, pretty much more or less the same time, twenty third, twenty fourth of December. Then he says, OK, when did we top? When did we top on this? They can let you can say, look, we topped somewhere around twenty fourth of June or near July. And if you look at this, when did we actually top somewhere around June or July? And he's saying, look, we are following this trend. We are following the cycle. If we do follow the cycle, we could have quite a long way to go before we get to the same levels here. And I do think that we are following the cycle. I want to actually show you. So if we look at the pre -harving cycles, I don't think there's anything different in in the cycles. You can see that we have a a downtrend, we have an uptrend, we have a reaccumulation zone. And then as we get to the halving from the halving, we really start climbing. So I don't know if this year is going to be that different. It looks like the cycle, as much as I hate to say it, it does look like the cycle is is playing out very similar, very similar to two previous cycles. We're also getting in the cycle while this is all happening, we are getting the short term holders capitulating. So if you look at the short term holder, the short term holders, they completely, completely, completely capitulated while the smart money is actually starting to accumulate at this level, at this level of the cycle. And what you see now is you're seeing a whole lot of FUD on Altcoin. So no, Benjamin Khan saying, look, there is a chance that, you know, Solana goes back to eight dollars. I've seen the bear saying that that we could go back to to to a Bitcoin price of nine dollars, nine thousand dollars and twelve thousand dollars. Remember that in this part of the cycle, in the bear part of the cycle, the bears get to be right and they get to tell you that they're right just for like a short period of time because bears will keep calling the market down. They'll keep telling you that Bitcoin is going down to twelve thousand and whatever else. And they'll be right for like short periods of time. But long, long periods of time, they won't be right because the market will just continue to go up and continue to go up. So let them enjoy their moment in the sand. I have been actually looking at the rainbow chart now. You know, I mean, initially I was obviously very, very, very skeptical of the rainbow chart. How the rainbow chart works is it tells you whether Bitcoin is overbought over here. Yeah, it's like maximum bubble territory, serious set of FOMO intensifies. Is this a bubble huddle? Still cheap, accumulated by and basically a fire cell. And as much as, you know, initially I was quite skeptical about the rainbow chart. If you look at it over a long period of time, it actually is quite right. And you can see that right now we're entering the we're in the buy zone and we're entering the basically a fire cell. So there's not actually that much panic on Bitcoin at the moment. Sentiment is bad, but it's not like it's not extreme fear. People are scared, but people aren't very, very scared. And that's why I'm not really ready to start buying old coins yet, because I think that there'll be better opportunities. I'm not saying don't start dollar cost averaging, but don't spend all your money now. And the reason why you probably shouldn't spend all your money now is because we're not at the point where people are panicking. People are getting demotivated. People are getting depressed. But remember that that's what this part of the cycle is designed to do. This part of the cycle is designed to depress you. That's why it's called the depression phase. Now, if we are here and we do have this accumulation left to go, I really hope that the accumulation isn't as long as the previous accumulation, because you can see that it took about a year and a half from that point to get to the same level in the last cycle. I don't think we're there, but I mean, you do need to prepare yourself for a marathon and you do need to prepare yourself to take maybe a little bit more losses if we follow the previous cycle. Be that as it may, as I said, I think I'm in the camp of this rainbow chart, which basically says, look, when prices start coming down to the bottom here, when they start reaching this oversold territory, just keep accumulating slowly. But the main thing is stay in the game, because I showed you that I showed you this here. I'll show it to you again. The main thing is that you've got to be here when these one, two, three, four, five days happen and one, two, three, four, five, six days happen and one, two, three, four, five, six days happen. The whole increase in the price of Bitcoin, 100 percent increase was here over 24 days, eight, eight and eight or seven, seven and seven. So I think you've got to be here. You've got to be here when this happens. So don't get demotivated now. Don't give up now. Now is probably the best time to to actually be accumulating. And I'll show you a bit later what it is that I'm actually accumulating and why I'm actually accumulating it, because a lot of people were talking to me about my tweet yesterday. Let's look at the bubbles. Oh, I'm loving the bubbles, Josh, I must say, and actually, to be honest, it's actually not only me loving the bubbles. I see Kasper is down seven point two eight today, maybe getting into my buy zone. Not yet. Not yet. Robert also down six point five three, also not in my buy zone yet. I mean, as I said, I am loving the bubbles. For those of you who don't know, there is a morning banter research call. Just click on newsroom over here. You'll see that we have a call in 17 hours added to your calendar and then you can join our morning research call. Also, if you want to search for a token, like, for example, if you don't know where Solana is, just search and you'll see it actually starts flashing. So we've built that functionality. And I think a lot of people are starting to notice bubbles today and now you can see earlier yesterday who's back streaming, by the way. And I actually I love his videos. So he he was also one of the people that really helped me when I when I started banter. He was one of the guys that like really, really helped me with the channel. So good to see him streaming again. And yesterday on his stream, he actually spoke about banter bubbles. Let's get to a really good tool. This tool was created by Crypto Banter. It's called the Banter Bubbles. And I want to be clear here. If you've been on crypto Twitter or if you follow this industry closely, none of these names will be a shock to you because these have all been talked about a lot on crypto Twitter. I'm not the first person talking about any of these. But one thing I think is really easy is you go to the banter bubbles here and you go ahead and you set it over to the year. And this gives you the highest performing tokens over the last year. And you can also say top one hundred, top two hundred. So good to see that other streamers are actually starting to to notice banter bubbles.
A highlight from 1379: Bitcoin Will Reach $400,000 Next Halving Epoch
"In today's show, we're going to be discussing Bitcoin analysts eyeing a V -shape Bitcoin price bounce as the RSI hits a five -year low. I'm also going to be sharing with you a new Bitcoin bull cycle metric, which bought them before 70 % gains. We'll also be discussing mysterious Bitcoin wallet becomes the third largest Bitcoin hodler in under three months, now at over $3 billion. We'll also be discussing the trader who nailed the 2018 Bitcoin price floor predicts the bear market bottom for crypto. I'll be breaking down his outlook. We'll also be discussing Guggenheim predicts a $400 ,000 Bitcoin price prediction, as well as Blockware. They share that the Bitcoin price can reach $400 ,000 during the next halving epoch. I'll be breaking this down for you. We'll also be taking a look at the overall crypto market, all this plus so much more in today's show. Yo, what's good, crypto fam? This is first and foremost, a video show. So if you want the full premium experience with video, visit my YouTube channel at Cryptonewsalerts .net. Again, that's Cryptonewsalerts .net. Welcome, everyone. Just joining us. This is podcast episode number thirteen hundred and seventy nine. I'm your host, JV. And today is August twenty second, twenty twenty three. And naturally, we have lots to cover. Unfortunately, the market is continuing on its downward spiral. We just broke that twenty six K resistance, as you can see here. And our market watch, we've got Bitcoin currently hovering just above twenty five thousand eight hundred dollars. We have Ether barely holding on to sixteen hundred. So the million dollar question becomes, how low will she go? And checking out CoinMarketCap .com, the crypto market cap barely holding on to that trillion dollar milestone, with about twenty eight billion in volume. In the past twenty four hours, we have the Bitcoin dominance at forty eight point four percent and the Ether dominance at eighteen point nine percent. And checking out the top one hundred crypto gainers for the past week, virtually nothing, and maybe just a handful, just a sea of losses, very unfortunate for the entire crypto market and checking out the crypto greed and fear index. Of course, we're still in fear today, rated to seventy eight. Last week was a fifty three neutral and last month a fifty four neutral as well. So there you have it. I mean, I've been taking advantage of this recent dip. I mean, sub twenty six thousand dollar Bitcoin seems like a bargain. If you're to ask me, let me know in that live chat. And now let's break down today's Bitcoin technical analysis and check out the charts and what is happening right now in the markets. Bitcoin stayed stubbornly anti trend today, August twenty second, as twenty six thousand became a magnet for the intraday Bitcoin price action. And again, we're just currently dropping right below it. And regarding the RSI readings, here's what someone had to share. At this stage, it feels like a game of chicken to see who is going to make the move to break the chop, according to material indicators. Now analyzing liquidity on the Binance order book, he also notes that a broad lack of liquidity, increasing the potential for a sharp move in either direction. Quitting the analysts here, the market is waiting to see if more bid or more ask liquidity is going to be attracted to the range. So far, we're seeing small amounts of bid liquidity ladder up from twenty thousand closer to the active trading zone, but no liquidity of any size new or moved has been stacked into the range, defending the price from the lower low. The implications were nonetheless potentially very serious for the bulls with the lower low apt to risk even a twenty thousand support going forward. Quitting the analysts again, needless to say, printing a lower low on this time frame has macro implications. Printing two lower lows would push the Bitcoin price to sub twenty thousand dollar levels. So a great question. How many of you are anticipating the Bitcoin price action dropping below twenty thousand? Let me know. Now zooming out, hope remain that Bitcoin can rescue its overall uptrend. So it's not all doom and gloom. In a dedicated video, we had crypto analyst Mikal van de Poppe shared that on the twelve hour time frames, the RSI measured less than nineteen at the time of writing near its lowest level since the twenty eighteen bear market bottom. Daily levels were similar, reaching their lowest since the March twenty twenty no vid crossmarket crash, quitting him here. Every time we see such a move, you get a sort of V shape recovery back up and it finds equilibrium on the higher floor. And he also added it was very likely that Bitcoin can stage a comeback to focus on twenty six five or more next as the outlines here in this chart. He also shared that the current Bitcoin price action reminds me of September twenty twenty absorption and slowly grind higher here for a while. And I can see this play out similarly. So there you have it. What are your thoughts? Do you feel we're likely to continue downwards, potentially sub twenty thousand or even touch in as low as twenty thousand? Or do you feel we're likely to continue climbing back up as the analysts on the ladder shared? Let me know your honest thoughts in the comments. Right down below. Now let's discuss a new bull cycle amongst us right now. Shall we check this out? The Bitcoin metric that nailed the pit of the twenty twenty two bear market says this uptrend is still intact. Let's go and a new post. The creator of on chain analytics platform looking to Bitcoin shared some good news in the form of Bitcoin's realized cap huddle waves metric. Let's go. While last week's 10 percent Bitcoin price dip has up ended some of the on chain landscape, the our huddle is one of the metrics taking the longer term view of what remains a timely bull market. This metric takes existing huddle waves data, which groups the Bitcoin supply when each coin or specifically the unspent transaction outputs last moved and waits it by the realized price. An example of the price at which it last move, quoting them here, peaks in younger age bands, highlights the periods where they have a proportionally higher realized value waiting relative to the older realized value age band, said Philip Swift. And he also shares this is important to note, as it indicates that the market is prepared to pay higher values for Bitcoin today and in recent times versus historical norms. This can be a good indicator that the market is becoming overheated. What are your thoughts now? Currently, the bands of coins that last moved three to six months ago are rising, a phenomenon coming to the start of the Bitcoin's previous bull markets. And on the topic of the August drawdown on Bitcoin Swift thus concluded that the recent price dip is the context of a much bigger bull trend, quoting him again here, three to six months band trending up as new money comes back into the market equals new bull cycle. Let's go. Now, our huddle has an impressive record when it comes to Bitcoin price phases. Back in December of last year, when Bitcoin was circling its two year lows of 15 six, which is the current market bottom, Swift used this metric to call the end of the euphoria among Bitcoin's speculative investor cohort, which he labels Taurus. He stated that that time that the market is likely now at these cycle lows, which means maximum risk reward opportunity, which I discussed in great detail yesterday. I said there's way more reward than risk currently in the market. And beginning in January of this year, Bitcoin began a new uptrend that delivered 70 percent gains just in quarter one. And since then, investor composition has changed with the short term huddler entities holding Bitcoin for one hundred and fifty five days or less, reducing their overall exposure to their lowest since November of twenty twenty one. And the latest dip nonetheless increased pressure on those remaining speculators, but almost 90 percent of the short term huddler coins now held at an unrealized loss. But I also like to point out that also the smart money, which are the whales, are continuing to accumulate. So even though the short term investors are the paper hands selling their Bitcoin potentially to BlackRock or MicroStrategy, whatever big corporate interests out there, the smart money is continuing to huddle. And as you know, we like to follow the smart money with that being shared, fam. Now let's discuss this new wallet, which came out of nowhere and has now accrued over three billion dollars worth of Bitcoin in less than three months. Who do you think owns this wallet? Well, let's look into it and discuss it, shall we? A mysterious Bitcoin wallet has surged up the ranks to become the third largest huddler of Bitcoin in the world in just over three months, with the timing sparking some wild theories about its owner. According to data from crypto statistics platform Bitinfo Charts, the wallet address first received Bitcoin on March 8th, and over the course of the next three months and two weeks, the wallet had accrued a staggering one hundred and eighteen thousand BTC worth over a billion dollars at today's current prices. Now, the rapid and significant accrual of Bitcoin within a single wallet addresses has attracted its fair share of conjecture naturally on X. Some users suggest it's most likely a crypto exchange moving their funds, while some more radical members have posted and more wild theories suggesting that Black Rock is the prime suspect. As shared here, this unknown address has accumulated over three billion dollars worth of Bitcoin in the last three months. The prime suspect, my first major transaction, which was thirty four hundred Bitcoin, occurred on May 16th, 2023, almost exactly one month later, on June 15th, when Black Rock filed for spot Bitcoin ETF. Now, very interesting, right? Now, the current largest Bitcoin wallets in the world, according to Bitinfo Charts, are reportedly owned by Binance and Bitfinex and are Bitcoin cold storage wallets. The unknown Bitcoin wallet comes in third place and is then followed by another Binance cold wallet in fourth place. Now, Black Rock made waves in the crypto market, as we know, June 15th, filing an application for the spot Bitcoin ETF product that, if accepted by the SEC, will be the first of its kind in the United States and completely change the game. Black Rock's applications sparked a wave of filings for similar spot products from a horde of other Wall Street heavyweights, including Fidelity, Invesco, Wisdom Tree and Valkyrie. The prospect of a spot Bitcoin ETF whipped crypto analysts into a frenzy, sharing their bullish predictions for the price of Bitcoin with Fundstrat's head of research, Tom Lee, suggesting that Bitcoin can reach a price of one hundred and fifty to one hundred and eighty thousand dollars per coin following the halving event scheduled to be in April 2024, which is now officially less than nine months out. What are your thoughts, though, fam? Let me know in the comments. And at the end of the show, I'll be reading everyone's comments out loud. Now let's discuss before we get into very bullish price targets, including this four hundred thousand dollar prediction, which is the main topic for the day. First, let's discuss where's the Bitcoin price likely to bottom out, according to this top analyst. Let's discuss it. The trader who accurately called Bitcoin's twenty eighteen bear market bottom is forecasting how the entire crypto market can carve a price floor for this cycle. Synonymous analyst Bluntz, what a username, love it, shared on social media X that he closely is looking at the total market cap of crypto, which is the total chart. Bluntz says he sees the total chart losing about 15 percent of its value before crypto assets can witness a significant bounce, quitting him here, looking at total paints, the clearest picture of them all and far more than looking at either ETH or BTC on their own based off the total chart. I do believe the June lows still need to be swept before calling bottoms, but it will probably be the last good buying opportunity of the next few years. So seize the moment, fam. And as you can see in this total crypto market chart, you can see we're currently sitting at just barely above one trillion. He sees us dropping before rising to one point four trillion dollars. So it appears that he expects the total market cap of all crypto to plummet to roughly eight hundred and eighty billion, wiping out one hundred and twenty billion off the current market. The analyst is a popular practitioner of the Elliott Wave theory, which we commonly cover here, an advanced technical analysis approach that attempts to predict the future price action by following crowd psychology that tends to manifest in waves. Bluntz says that his prediction is based on a model that outlines an asset's potential correction after a steep rally based, quoting him here, based off simple Elliott Wave model, viewing the rise from the lows as an impulsive move and our corrective wave from the highs being around 70 to 80 percent complete. Now, let me know if you agree or disagree with the crypto analyst. Do you think the crypto market cap needs to shed another one hundred and twenty billion before we rise back on up? Let me know your honest thoughts in the comments right down below. Now let's discuss Guggenheim's seven I'm sorry, four hundred thousand dollar price prediction. Scott Minard, who is their CIO. He originally made this prediction, I believe towards the end of twenty twenty one. Now, unfortunately, he has had a heart attack and he passed, so he's no longer with us. He literally died in December of last year. But nonetheless, he still made this prediction. So we're going to cover it and then we're going to discover the outline metrics from Blockware and their four hundred thousand prediction for the height of this cycle for the next halving reaching the epoch, which is also interesting because they're also suggesting a four hundred thousand dollar price action per coin. Then we'll dive into our live Q &A. So here we go. This was again, this article was dated, as you can see here, January 18th, twenty twenty one. So this is roughly just over two years ago. And at that time, Bitcoin was trading just above forty one thousand dollars. So here's the prediction coming from Scott Minard, from Guggenheim, a large, large asset manager. I think one thing that we are seeing is the sudden interest in retail. We are moving into a speculative frenzy and perhaps it's time to take some money off the table. Now, the debate around Minard's two opposite comments for Bitcoin sparked curiosity amongst the crypto community when he said time to take money off the table. And he also added on this tweet, it was before it became X, it was right Twitter. So he shared Bitcoin's parabolic rise is unsustainable in the near term, vulnerable to a setback. The target technical upside of thirty five thousand has been exceeded time to take some money off the table. And just at that time when he made that tweet, Bitcoin entered a strong correction. And over that time, Bitcoin tested support at thirty thousand twice before resuming back northwards and also talking about the positive side, back to the four hundred thousand price prediction. The Guggenheim CIO said that Bitcoin is becoming a favorable asset class slowly. That's right. And still remains positive on the Bitcoin price action for the long term, quitting him here. The other side of that is demonstrating that crypto is becoming much more mainstream. The four hundred thousand dollar price I talked about was based off the supply of gold in the world and crypto in a lot of ways is more attractive than gold. Let me know if you agree or disagree. I absolutely agree that Bitcoin is way more attractive than gold and comparing it to the yellow metal market. Minard said that Bitcoin comes with additional benefits like portability and ease of transactions. And note that Guggenheim Partners is already seeking five hundred million dollars worth of exposure to Bitcoin via the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust, which is the GBTC product, the largest HODLer Bitcoin in the world. They currently control over four hundred thousand BTC. So this will be a 10 percent exposure to Bitcoin from five billion Guggenheim's macro opportunities fund. The investment giant's proposed SEC filing shall become effective January 31st. And when asked Minard of if any of their funds have been allocated into Bitcoin, Minard hinted that they are still waiting for the SEC to approve their proposal. He added that if client demand picks up, they would possibly consider some allocations. And he also revealed that some small private Guggenheim funds have done some allocations, quoting him again, and some of our private funds, we have already purchased it. I recommended it to somebody. So if you believe what I said, that it'll go to four hundred thousand dollars per coin eventually, then two percent of your portfolio will be 20 percent before this is all over. So there you have it. Let me know if you agree or disagree with Scott Minard. And again, rest in peace. The dude had a heart attack at the end of last year and is no longer with us. And with that being shared now for our main story of the day, and that's the block where outline prediction of a four hundred thousand dollar Bitcoin price, along with the math to back it up. Now, this is pretty awesome. And again, shout out to everyone today in our live chat. I appreciate everyone's support. Shout out to Blockware Solutions as they shared on X how Bitcoin can reach four hundred thousand dollars per coin during the next halving epoch brought to you by Blockware Intelligence. Here we go. Twenty twenty four halving analysis, understanding the market cycles and opportunities created by the halving. Unlike other commodities, Bitcoin has a predetermined algorithmic supply schedule, which cannot be changed. There are multiple factors contributing to the cyclical nature of Bitcoin's price, including network adoption and the macroeconomic environment. But the most impactful is the mining subsidy halving. Yeah, that's right. Bitcoin's market cycles are unique due to its fully transparent block chain, providing market participants with more granular information than any other asset class. And moreover, the predictable supply schedule further impacts the psychology of market participants and example demand. So number one, halving's reduce the sell pressure. Miners are the primary force of sell pressure on the price of Bitcoin they receive, although the newly issued Bitcoin and the majority of which they must sell in order to fund operating expenses for their mining operations, the weakest miners on the network are eliminated and sell pressure is significantly reduced. The price of Bitcoin begins drifting up and a new wave of adoption then begins and assuming a thirty five thousand price action after the halving, the U .S. dollar value of Bitcoin mined per year can drop from eleven and a half billion to five point seven billion dollars. That is one hundred and sixty four thousand two hundred and fifty Bitcoin less mined every year, more than MicroStrategy's entire Bitcoin treasury. Now, after the inefficient miners capitulate, the profit margin increases for surviving miners, which further reduces the sell pressure. So based on the post capitulation hashrate estimate, this would result in a two point three billion dollar reduction in annual sell pressure from the miners. Now, number two, halving brings new demand with supply being diminished. Demand is the only remaining variable determining the market price of BTC. Many market participants understand the supply side dynamics at play due to the halvings. Historically, this has led to a surge in demand in the months following each halving, as evidenced by on chain data. We'll be checking out these charts in a little bit and do the positive sentiment market participants prepare to deploy capital at the first sign of upward momentum. Now decreased supply plus increased demand equals strong positive signal for the price appreciation. Number three, the halvings cannot be priced in. Despite their predictable nature, halvings cannot be fully priced in before they occur. A higher price today would result in more miners coming online, introducing additional sell pressure and limiting the price appreciation. And moreover, the weakest miners, those with old generation machines and or high operating costs, are the first to unplug post halving. The elimination of these miners significantly reduces the sell pressure as they were selling most of their Bitcoin to fund their operations. Lastly, there are some market participants that believe halvings are bad for the security of the Bitcoin network as the diminishing block subsidy reduces the amount of miners making Bitcoin more vulnerable to an attack. And when halving successfully occur, these doubters are proved wrong and positive sentiment increases. Now, number four, Bitcoin cycle volatility and historical performance. Bitcoin's extreme volatility is a side effect of its halving shocks and rapid global adoption, resulting in four distinct stages within each halving cycle. Stage one, the halving, stage two, the bull market, stage three, the bear market and then stage four, recovery. And while Bitcoin is often criticized for its extreme volatility on a long enough time horizon, its volatility is solely to the upside. Keep that in mind. Now, nobody who has ever bought Bitcoin and held it for more than five years is down on their purchase. That's worth repeating. Nobody who has ever bought Bitcoin and held it for more than five years is down on their purchase. So in a long term, how long is that? Holla in the live chat. And for each epoch, the price of Bitcoin has increased by the following amounts from the halving to the next bull market top from 2009 to 2011. We had a 584 X increase in price action from 2012 to 2015, 92 X from 2016 to 2019, 30 X and from 2020 to 2024, 7 .7 X. And now number five, diminishing returns may not be the case going forward. Some question the bullishness of these halvings as the stock of existing Bitcoin grows relative to the amount of new bitcoins being mine. This is a common perspective, but it may be incorrect. Less than 10 percent of the existing Bitcoin have moved in the last month. A large majority of Bitcoin is held by users unwilling to sell at today's price. Now, the small amount of bitcoins that is moving and being traded is what determines today's price. There is a baseline of demand and from Bitcoin are saving for the future. The reduction in sell pressure becomes more pronounced, each halving after Bitcoin more than doubles in price. This indicates that halving induced reductions in sell pressure could become more extreme and potentially lead to larger bull runs in the future. Now, 2024 will be the first halving where the supply of Bitcoin available for trade decreased since the previous halving. And during spring of 2020, the percentage of the outstanding Bitcoin available for trade was at an all time high, indicating the Bitcoin was over becoming more abundant. However, this trend had reversed over the last three and a half years. And as the new bull market begins, there will be less Bitcoin available than the previous cycles. The first halving this has ever occurred. And assuming the price of thirty five thousand at the date of the halving, a four hundred thousand dollar cycle top would break the trend of diminishing returns, which is a reasonable expectation due to the two billion having supply shock and increasing scarcity, a liquid BTC supply on the exchanges. Now, number six, juxtaposition with gold. Gold is an asset similar to Bitcoin and that they are both non -sovereign stores of value. However, when juxtaposed, Bitcoin poses far more desirable attributes. Facts. Number one, Bitcoin is absolutely scarce, while gold is only relatively scarce. That's true because with gold, you can continue mining a new supply, adding to the overall supply each and every year with Bitcoin. There could never be more than twenty one million Bitcoin. And number two, Bitcoin is more portable, divisible, fungible and is less vulnerable to rehypothecation by centralized custodians. Facts. So after the 2024 halving, the inflation rate of Bitcoin will fall under one percent, which is less than half that of gold. Now, four hundred thousand dollars per Bitcoin would put the market cap of Bitcoin just beneath the parity with gold. Let's go. Can't wait for a twelve trillion market cap for the king crypto personally. Now, given the bullish catalysts induced by the halving, we believe this is a fair estimate for the top of the coming Bitcoin cycle. Now let's take a look at some of these charts, which they shared. This first one shows you the Bitcoin price issuance with the 90 day moving 90 day change issuance. And you can see, you know, the different metrics here in the different colors. And then let's go to their next chart here. It shows you entities net growth with a 30 day moving average. You can see the surge in demand and just continuing to move on up like clockwork. And then in this final chart here, we can see the Bitcoin price all time highs for each cycle, which is separated, which you can see here. Yes. So, I mean, if history doesn't repeat, oftentimes it shall rhyme. So I cannot wait. And I'd personally love to see a four hundred thousand dollar price action. And this shows you the hash rate, which just continues to climb, reaching all time highs, making the Bitcoin network more secure than it's ever been before. And they also shared an interesting update, which I might as well read that as well right here. Part two. Let's read a touch of this and then we'll dive into our live Q &A. What machine and electricity rate will Bitcoin miners need to survive this twenty twenty four halving? Check it out. There are three distinct phases in the time before, during and after the twenty twenty four Bitcoin halving. We've got number one, the pre halving, number two, the post halving and number three, post capitulation. Number one, the pre halving before the twenty twenty four halving, all miners will be operating at a profit but are likely selling at least enough Bitcoin to cover their operation expenses. Miners with the most efficient machines and the lowest energy rates have the lowest Bitcoin breakeven prices. And the miners with higher breakeven prices are either unprofitable or forced to sell at a higher percentage of the Bitcoin that they mine in order to cover their operating expenses. And also it includes what's minor and Avalon equivalents, which are size adjusted for the percentage of the total network hash rate. Now let's discuss the post halving after the twenty twenty four halving. Many miners will become unprofitable since miners have already made significant capital expenditures for mining Bitcoin infrastructure and are locked into energy contracts. They are unlikely to turn off immediately. So instead, they will try to continue operating for as long as possible, hoping the Bitcoin increases enough to make them profitable again. Now, unless Bitcoin price appreciates quickly, the extreme margin compression will begin to force inefficient miners offline. And number three, the post capitulation following the capitulation of inefficient miners difficulty will adjust down, lowering the breakeven prices for surviving miners who will become even more profitable. So there you have it. I mean, shout out again to Blockware. Awesome analysis on their outline of the Bitcoin price going to four hundred thousand dollars per coin at the epoch of the next halving, which again is right around the corner next year.

"Senior investment strategy at Bank of America, joining us a little earlier. And she talked about NVIDIA being like this macroeconomic event because it's a bellwether for the entire AI industry. It's become a bellwether for the entire AI industry given the kind of reaction that it generated not just for its own stock, but for big tech and anything tangentially tied to AI, right? I mean, we still see it with every company, including the words AI in their press release during earnings season. Well, just about 24 hours ago, until we get those results, you take a look at how markets closed today. The S &P 500, we're going to finish low about three tenths of a percent after that pop we saw yesterday. The Nasdaq composite doing a little bit better, better going to close a hair higher here. Dow Jones, though, the biggest loser today off by about half a percent. Looks like Carol. All right. So we dig a little bit deeper. Katie into the S &P 500. Most names in the index, 305 to be exact to the downside. So certainly a risk off trade, certainly more of that feeling in the broader market. And then, Scarlett, you've got about one hundred ninety four gaining gaining ground today. And so it's definitely geared towards the decliners. And you see that reflected in the industry groups. These are the two dozen industry groups, level two for the S &P 500. And on the downside, you've got banks leading the way lower off by two point four percent as a group on that downgrade from S &P and chip related companies. That's Nvidia right there. The group losing one point six percent. On the upside, tech hardware, that's Apple Telecom Services, AT &T and Verizon and Tesla giving the auto stocks a little bit of a lift. All right, folks, let's get to some of those individual gainers. And lo and behold, Moderna again atop that list. It's number two gainer in the S &P 500, number one in the Nasdaq 100 up two consecutive days. We're talking about a gain of about 12 percent in those days. Still down about 76 percent from its August twenty twenty one high when it traded at forty four a share. It's one hundred and sixteen twenty four at the close.
A highlight from 1375: MAX KEISER: Bitcoin Will Rocket to $3,000,000
"Holla at your boy. Lots to cover as the crypto bloodbath continues in today's show. I'll be breaking down the latest technical analysis, as literally there was a billion dollars worth of liquidations. We'll also be discussing SpaceX Bitcoin right down, sparks a massive confusion. The question is, did Elon and SpaceX really dump three hundred and seventy three million worth of Bitcoin, or is it nothing more than FUD? We'll also be discussing U .S. Congressman issues a warning on CBDC says they pose an existential threat to Western civilization. We'll also be discussing tornado cash loses its lawsuit against the U .S. government. I'll be breaking down this report, as well as breaking news. The judge grants the SEC request to file a motion for the appeal with the Ripple XRP case. And Max Kaiser, our fearless leader, quoting him here, Bitcoin has already and will continue to outperform everything else so spectacularly by one hundred X or more that anyone holding fiat stocks, bonds, gold and all the coins, property, etc., will literally be impoverished. We'll also be taking a look at the overall crypto market. All this plus so much more in today's show. Yo, what's good, crypto fam? This is first and foremost, a video show. So if you want the full premium experience with video, visit my rumble channel at CryptonewsAlerts .net. Again, that's CryptonewsAlerts .net. And welcome y 'all just joining us. Now let's dive into our market watch and check out this insanity of this bloodbath currently going on in the Bitcoin market. You should be able to see on your screen. Let me know in the chat. Bitcoin's currently just holding on to twenty six thousand one hundred by a thread. We've already touched in the twenty five thousand range. We're still down six percent for the day. Ether down four percent, trading at sixteen hundred dollars. And some of the biggest losers naturally is some of these alts. XRP down thirteen percent, barely holding on to fifty cents. We have Solana down seven percent, trading at twenty one bucks and also XLM and Litecoin are in the blood red. And checking out CoinMarketCap .com, the current crypto market cap sits at one point zero five trillion dollars, but about seventy billion in volume in the past twenty four hours. So the volume is up roughly fifty eight percent. We've got the Bitcoin dominance at forty eight point three percent, with the ether dominance at nineteen percent even. And checking out the SOT 100 crypto gainers in the past twenty four hours, probably not much, just what you see here. We have AKT, which I have never heard of, up thirty three percent, trading at a dollar thirty nine, followed by Injective up seven percent, trading at seven dollars and seventy eight cents, followed by Tether Gold, which I have never heard of, barely in the green, trading just under nineteen hundred dollars. And virtually the entire crypto market is bleeding in in the red with the biggest losers, including Conflux, Litecoin and XRP for the past twenty four hours. And if you check out the top losers for the past week, yikes. I mean, we're talking about anywhere from ten to twenty, even as high as thirty percent losses, not looking good right now for the alts. And checking out the crypto greed and fear index, we're currently rated to thirty seven, finally back in fear. We have been stuck in neutral and greed for the bulk of the year. We're finally back in fear. Yesterday was a fifty neutral, last week a fifty one and last month also a fifty in neutral. Now, welcome to everyone just joining us. Someone earlier asked in the chat and they're like, yo, smash that down arrow button, dislike this video because he's sharing predictions of millions of dollars. Meanwhile, there's a bloodbath in the market. And I responded like I'm not losing any sleep over this dump. All I do is continue to stack sats and I sleep like a baby. Why is that? Because I'm not an ish coiner. I have the most pristine cryptocurrency, decentralized, incorruptible, unconfiscatable crypto, and the only one that there is and that is Bitcoin. So why everyone else is crying and panicking? I'm stacking sats. I just spent an entire day at the pool with my daughter having a grand old time. I'm not sweating it whatsoever. And I think if you're a Bitcoiner, you feel the same way because one Bitcoin is still equivalent to what? One Bitcoin. Who cares? The fiat crap, you know, value equivalent. It's irrelevant. One Bitcoin will always be equivalent to one Bitcoin. And with that being shared, let's dive into today's Bitcoin technical analysis and check out some of these blood charts we're witnessing right now. Bitcoin stayed near two month lows at the August 18th Wall Street open as the markets came to terms with extreme liquidations, which we can see here not looking so great. And data from Cointelegraph and TradingView showed Bitcoin price action tracking sideways after a single day candle spawned an 8 % loss. Bitcoin saw a cascade of liquidations across the derivative markets, which is used as a financial weapon of mass destruction, with these accounting for an outsized majority amid the relatively lack spot selling. Quoting QCP Capital, In Deribbit, it is likely that a large account got wiped considering the immense short liquidation that occurred together. And as you can see here, shorts are getting wrecked. I mean, so many positions are getting wrecked, obviously. Now, QCP, like others noted that the market reaction to the alleged trigger are right down to SpaceX's $373 million on their Bitcoin holdings, which appeared to be exaggerated. And in our next story, we're going to be diving deeper into this. And is it just all FUD or is there any truth to this story? Now, the total liquidations challenge those seen in the immediate aftermath of the FTX exchange meltdown, the event which resulted in Bitcoin dip into two year lows and the current low of the cycle, which is $15 ,600 back in November of 2022. Quoting the Kibisi letter, This feels like yet another sign of drying liquidity markets have seen over the last few weeks. And for popular trader Rec Capital, here's what he had to share. Bitcoin formed its higher high at $31 ,000 on inclining volume, but the price formed the second half of its double top on the declining volume. And an accompanying chart showed trading volume on the daily timeframes, as Rec Capital warned that capitulation had likely not yet matched the previous selloffs. Quoting him again, Though there was a small breakout in the seller volume on this crash, it is still nowhere near the seller exhaustion volume levels of the previous Bitcoin reversals in which he explained. In fact, current seller volume would need to probably double to reach those seller exhaustion volume levels that prompted the price reversals in early and late March, as well as mid -June. Meanwhile, others were more optimistic as pointing out to the RSI. Every cycle, including the weekly Bitcoin RSI experiences, a fakeout of the bull market start line comes lasting longer than others, and every one of them makes a revisit to the 0 .382 Fibonacci retrace of the move. And with the latest drop, both of those things are now complete. And also QCP points out, We believe that a low now rests on Powell's speech at Jackson Hill next week. And so there you have it. How low do you think the Bitcoin price action is likely to go during this dump? Let me know your honest thoughts in the comments right down below, which leads us to our next story of the day. Let's discuss everything SpaceX and the FUD circulating in the markets right now. What exactly is causing this mass liquidation of over a billion dollars of positions to be liquidated just like that? Let's break it down and let me know your thoughts also in the comments. SpaceX's Bitcoin write down report on August 18th sparked mass confusion within the crypto community. The report published in the Wall Street Journal puzzled many. Keep in mind, that's the mainstream who questioned whether SpaceX held 373 million bucks worth of Bitcoin and sold it in 2021 and 2022, or whether they only reduced their Bitcoin exposure by the same amount. Several social media outlets reported that SpaceX had sold this entire Bitcoin holdings. Maybe that's what crashed the market, while others expressed uncertainty, claiming they were unable to confirm the amount based on the wording of the report. As pointed out here, I actually read the Wall Street Journal report, and I think Bitcoin magazine is wrong. Yes, the report claims that SpaceX marked down the value of the Bitcoin by 373 million, but that doesn't mean they sold 373 million and sold some, but selling some doesn't necessarily mean they have no Bitcoin left. And I think they make a great point. Then Elon Musk, well, he revealed this in 2021 that SpaceX was holding Bitcoin as does Tesla on his balance sheet. And while Tesla's Bitcoin holdings were made public, there were no estimations around the SpaceX Bitcoin holdings, which have been key to the ongoing confusion. Tesla once held 1 .5 billion worth of BTC purchased during the bull market, but revealed it has sold 72 % of his holdings in quarter two of 2022. The SpaceX write -off claims were also believed to be one of the key catalysts behind the 2000 Bitcoin price drop, although several others denied that being the cause. Musk hasn't addressed the issue as of yet, but the market FUD made him target of Bitcoin proponents who questioned his strategy of buying high and selling low, while a few others called it market FUD. What are your thoughts? Do you think this is nothing more than mainstream FUD published by the Wall Street Journal specifically to tank the markets? Very interesting thought, right? One Reddit user wrote that Musk is running out of cash across all of his companies, suggesting that Musk might sell all of his Bitcoin and doge within the next six months. And users on X also called out Musk for his paper hands, which we commonly make fun of him for quoting them here. Musk appears to be going to toe to toe against Bitcoin and his ex empire. I wish him well, although I don't think this is wise. That's coming from Dr. Jeff Ross. While the dilemma around SpaceX Bitcoin holdings continues, Bitcoin proponents advocated traders to huddle Bitcoin and not fall for the market FUD. I think that's a great point. As pointed out here, SpaceX didn't sell his Bitcoin and neither did Elon Musk. Now sit back, relax, and just some intelligent guys getting $700 million in longs. Don't leverage, be patient, and just huddle. Sage advice, as we all know, huddle be thy name. And when in doubt, try to relax. Get your mind off of the price action. Like I said earlier, I spent the entire day in the pool, soaking up those sun rays here in Puerto Rico, and I'm not losing any sleep over these dumps. I just will continue stacking sats and counting my blessings because I'm a Bitcoiner and not an ishcoiner. And again, the ishcoins are the ones that get wrecked when Bitcoin drops 8%. Some of these altcoins will drop 10, 20, maybe as high as 30%. So that's the wreckage, you know, comes with the territory, no risk, no reward. Obviously, altcoins are very risky, but hence, when they pump, they could be very rewarding at the same time. So you got to find an equilibrium, right? Anyways, now let's discuss the existential threat, says Congressman regarding central bank digital currencies, better known as CBDCs. Let's break this baby down. And again, welcome to everyone just joining. Make some noise in live chat. Let me know where you're tuning in from. This is a very good warning coming from US Congressman Warren Davidson, warning that the central bank digital currencies, better known as CBDCs, can result in a dystopian future. Facts. The Ohio Republican tells his 80 ,000 ex -followers he believes that CBDCs could transform money into a powerful means of governmental control and plans to introduce legislation to criminalize the development of these types of assets. So everyone, please show this Congressman Warren Davidson some love, because I don't know many other congressmen coming out sharing that. And we all know this is fact because we're bitcoiners, quitting him here to make the point crystal clear. I am working on legislation to criminalize designing, building, testing, developing, or establishing a central bank digital currency. CBDC poses an existential threat to Western civilization by corrupting money into a tool for coercion and control. Now, sound money serves as a stable store of value and an efficient means of exchange. Now, Davidson also says he wants to prohibit CBDCs because they threaten other digital assets such as bitcoin and pitting the development of beneficial financial technology, quitting him again. Central bank digital currency poses a serious threat of all digital assets. As I said at a flyover fintech, many people wrongfully conflate even bitcoin with a CBDC. I'd say the average individual knows no difference because they're completely ignorant to cryptocurrency. But if you watch the show, you already know CBDCs are pure evil programmable government money and bitcoin is the antidote. Now, at least most agree that CBDC is evil, the financial equivalent of the Death Star. No, that's true. Now, don't become an accomplice to anyone designing, building, testing, developing, or establishing CBDC. Banning CBDC is essential to America's fintech future. Davidson calls out several entities currently working on CBDCs, including Ripple Labs. That's right. Tokenized assets are not the problem, it's the people. Entities, including the Fed, Ripple, and Consensus and influencers are actively working on CBDC projects. So it's no secret. The congressman says the CBDCs are the complete opposite of decentralized finance and vows to prevent their adoption, quoting him again. Current CBDC versions are centrally managed permission database dependent on digital ID. This is the opposite of DeFi, where the entire computing architecture is designed to protect privacy and enable permissionless peer -to -peer transactions. 100 plus countries are studying, developing, or implementing the same creepy surveillance state technology as China. So there you have it. You have been warned. I warn you virtually every single day on the show to stay away from CBDCs, as Bitcoin is the antidote, and we don't trust the government, and we don't trust their fiat money. Why would we trust their digital version of government fiat money? It would make no sense whatsoever. But anyways, fam, now let's discuss the conclusion regarding the tornado cash lawsuit. Unfortunately for the community, the government won. Then we'll discuss the latest with the Ripple XRP appeal, followed by the latest predictions from Max Keiser, suggesting Bitcoin will continue to outpace every other asset and climb another 100x from the current price, virtually predicting a $3 million Bitcoin price action. And then we'll dive into our live Q &A. So yeah, let's discuss tornado cash. And how many of you have ever used it before? Do let me know. Tornado cash is the most well -known crypto mixing service sanctioned by the US Office of Foreign Asset Control last August. The decision was a result of a long -lasting spat between the regulator and the crypto mixer dating back to at least 2018, when two persons of special interest in the US government were found to be using its services. Now, although crypto mixers do indeed appeal to cyber criminals, their main purpose is to grant extra privacy to those who want it. In order for a crypto mixer to work as intended, the number of beginning users must be much higher than the amount of bad actors using it, with no sizable amounts of assets to mix. The operation falls flat. Now, is this with the distinction in mind that Coinbase supported tornado cash's appeal against the sanctions? Well, as pointed out here, the rights are rarely secured on a path that is always up, and we will continue to believe plaintiff's challenge to OFAC's tornado cash action is right. We have always known that the Fifth Circuit Review is required to resolve these issues. So this is ultimately Coinbase pushing back and saying, hey, this isn't right. The government shouldn't be allowed to do this. Now, also keep in mind that according to the court documents, Torquato Cash's argument focused on its definition as a decentralized open source software project made of smart contracts on the Ethereum blockchain. However, the minting of torn tokens administrated by the tornado cash DAO led the government to believe otherwise. And although DAO is a technically autonomous, the court argued that whoever holds the most funds has the most voting power and therefore re -centralizing decisions in a roundabout way. The case was presided by Judge Pittman of the U .S. District Court for the Western District of Texas, and motivating his decision to turn down the lawsuit, Judge Pittman stated, in the eyes of the U .S. government, tornado cash is indeed an entity with a property interest, and therefore the OFAC sanctions of the crypto mixer do not qualify as governmental overreach. Quoting them here, this case is about tornado cash, but the parties disagree on how to characterize tornado cash. Plaintiffs argue that the designation of tornado cash exceeds the department's statutory authority over foreign nationals' interests in property and violates the free speech clause. The government, on the other hand, argues that tornado cash is an entity that may be designated and that it has a property interest in smart contracts. So unless further arguments are brought forth, tornado cash will remain on the OFAC's specially designated national list, which prevents the entity from doing business with the banking sector and a wide range of businesses. So there you have it. What are your thoughts on this? Do you think this is unlawful and overreach of the government bodies in the SEC? Let me know your honest thoughts in the comments right down below. Now let's discuss the latest with the Ripple lawsuit versus the SEC. As many of you know, Ripple Labs did get a slight victory, and it was determined by Judge Torres that XRP was not being sold as an unregistered security, as the SEC deemed. And so, however, Gary Gensler is not accepting that the SEC is not accepting the verdict from the judge and is ultimately going to be appealing this decision. So let's now break this one down, shall we? Yeah, very interesting indeed. Check it out. Judge Torres has granted a request from the US SEC to file a motion for leave to file for the interlocutory appeal in the case against Ripple Labs. The security regulator sent a letter to Torres August 9th Well, duh. But according to the US law, this appeal occurs when a ruling by trial court is appealed while other aspects of the case are still proceeding. The decision allows the SEC to file a motion by August 18th, which is today, requesting permission to bring a case to the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. Ripple will also be able to file an opposition to the motion. Now, the decision comes just a few hours after Ripple Labs voiced opposition to a potential appeal for the case. Ripple lawyers put forth three main arguments in opposition to the SEC request. They first argued that an appeal requires a pure question of law and that the SEC's request raises no new legal issues that need to be renewed. They also argued that the SEC's claim of an incorrect court ruling on the matter is not sufficient and that an immediate appeal will not advance the termination of litigation proceedings. Quoting their CEO, Brad Garlinghouse, reminder, the request for appeal, even if granted, doesn't change the fact that XRP is not a security. That's not up for debate or trial, but the SEC continues to claim that Chris and I acted recklessly in believing that XRP is not a security. Yada, yada, yada. Now, Torres ruled on July 13th that Ripple's native XRP token is not a security when distributed in public sales, aka exchanges, but that the ruling considered XRP a security and institutional sales. Interesting. The case against Ripple has been ongoing since December of 2020. Holy moly. When the SEC sued Ripple and his two chief executives, including Brad Garlinghouse and Chris Larson, over allegations that the company was offering an unregistered security. And in a recent interview with Bloomberg, Garlinghouse shared his belief that the SEC would face a lengthy appeal process, putting him here, as a matter of law, the law of the land right now is that XRP is not a security. And until there is an opportunity for the SEC to file the appeal, which could take years, frankly, we are very optimistic. He noted, and according to Garlinghouse, an appeal against the retail sales ruling would only further solidify the decision that Torres made. So there you have it. You also have to keep in mind for this to go to the appeal and do a whole new trial could take years. So in the interim, meaning in the meantime, meanwhile, XRP is not a security unregistered security being sold on the exchanges. So all the exchanges have the permissions to relist it. And in fact, a lot of the major exchanges have already relisted XRP for this reason. However, if they have another trial, let's hypothetically say three years from now, and after another trial, the judge changes the ruling and it's deemed an unregistered security, then it can be like deja vu all over again, like going back to 2020, it gets delisted from all the exchanges. And to me, that is very scary. And you can thank No Clarity Gary for that one. So how do you think this is likely to play out? Do you think the SEC is just wasting their time? I mean, I personally look at it this way. The SEC has unlimited resources. They have all the money in the world, the money printer, you know what I mean? Will continue to go burp for their needs. And so they can virtually do anything they want. I think it's overreach. Obviously, it's the crypto crackdown. Unfortunately, it's likely to continue. However, I think the lawsuit against Coinbase and Binance, et cetera, can help set precedent, just as the XRP lawsuit has. And I think that thus far, it's been a win for crypto because the SEC is not getting their way. And of course, they're not going to be happy. Of course, they're going to appeal it. Of course, Gary is not going to give us what we want and protect the investors whatsoever because they're just protecting their own pockets at the end of the day. And that's just the reality of the life that we live in here in the crypto sphere. But with that being shared, fam, let me know your thoughts. And now let's break down our main story of the day. And that's Max Kaiser predicting that the Bitcoin price will rise to $3 million. We don't care if Bitcoin is crashing because we're in this for the long haul. So cry me a river, y 'all. But with that being shared, yeah, first, let's start with this quote he recently shared on Twitter dated August 11th, which got 62 ,000 views. He wrote, Bitcoin has already and will continue to outperform everything else so spectacularly by 100 X or more that anyone holding fiat stocks, bonds, gold, all the coins, property, et cetera, will literally be impoverished. Very powerful words. Now, at the time he made this prediction, Bitcoin was close to 30 ,000. So what is 100 X times 30 ,000? That's $3 million per coin. And now quoting him from a more recent interview he did with Swan, maybe about a week or so ago, I posted this on X, formerly known as Twitter on, let's see, August 12th. So the following day after he made that post, it got 131 ,000 views, fam. And here's what Max Kaiser had to share. With Bitcoin, it's kind of the end of price discovery because everything will eventually be priced in Bitcoin. Everything goes to zero against Bitcoin. Bet you heard that one before. And so for someone like myself who has been following this for 40 years, the finance markets, technology, Bitcoin is the holy grail. It is the end all preach. I would say my compatriot in all of this is Michael Saylor. When you hear Michael Saylor talk, he talks about the aesthetics of Bitcoin, the beauty of Bitcoin. And he speaks about it in a way I think carries the torch from the Max and Stacey from 2011. Now he started buying it, I guess, when it was 10 or $12 ,000 or so in 2020 era. So we were there from 2011 to 2020. And I think he's kind of carried the torch from 2020 in a lot of ways and introduced Bitcoin to massive pools of capital, including to Elon Musk. Note that. I'm surprised that more companies haven't followed his lead, giving the breakup of inflation that we have had exactly as Michael Saylor predicted. The melting ice cube, as he called it, at the exact time and exactly what happened. Well, I guess we can say now we're in an era where BlackRock and these other major institutions are now looking at Bitcoin. So his work on the institutional level, I guess, is bearing fruit. Now, three years later, I see in the Middle East, they are starting to recognize Bitcoin. So that's a huge pool of capital. Yeah. And I think that all that oil money will find its way into Bitcoin and be a huge catalyst for higher prices. So it's a natural way for the oil industry to diversify their portfolio because Bitcoin is essentially energy and the energy eventually gets priced in Bitcoin. And there is a marriage between these two in a big way. So there you have it, his first big prediction that the oil industry is going to diversify into Bitcoin and he continues. So I think that's kind of the answer. I have always been fascinated by price discovery in markets and the architecture of how markets work under the hood. And Bitcoin is such a pristine, perfect money. And I think it's something that humans have been searching for since forever. And now we're seeing it change society on a really fundamental level with the introduction of Bitcoin. Now, a lot of people are freaking out because of it, because it destroys the status quo, preach. And a lot of people who have been waiting for it to come along and had the faith that humanity can be saved. Thank God. I honestly feel humanity would be doomed without Bitcoin. All we have to look forward to is CBDCs and the enslavement of the human race. Now, anyways, continuing, they see Bitcoin in those terms. So you have this split going on, which is very exciting. So it just continues on and on. And how could you not be interested in it? I think the people who were into it earlier, aka Roger Ver, and walked away just never got it from the beginning. Once it's categorized as an asset class, we have nothing to do except position ourselves in this asset class. So either we are going to have a small position or a big position, but we cannot ignore it. We cannot not have a position. Now, listen closely here. So even 1 % of that multi -hundred trillion dollar funds available moves the needle on Bitcoin and it moves it up considerably. He's referring to the five, six, seven hundred dollar or five, six, seven hundred trillion dollar total addressable market. And he continues. So if we get into the five or 10 % range, then you start to really see a raise ahead to the seven figure type predictions that people have been making, including myself, because it is an asset class. But on the flip side, we have what we saw in the gold market, which is the ability to control price discovery and manipulate the prices. And it's real through the derivatives markets. Pay very close attention to what he shares about derivatives here, fam. This is how the powers that be and the central bankers continue to manipulate the precious metal market. So the price of gold has been lagging inflation for 20 years because the government around the world doesn't like gold making their fiat money look bad. So they make it easy for the huge funds to manipulate the price of gold and to scalp and to continuously skim profits off of gold, which is what they do almost every single day. You can watch it and see it. In fact, it's pretty clear. And they are very good at keeping the price of gold and silver down. There's something like for every ounce of silver, there's probably 50 ounces worth of derivatives floating in various exchanges around the world that are used to keep the price of silver down because governments don't want gold to race ahead to draw the capital out of their fiat money scam and into gold. Makes a great point, right? And with Bitcoin, we have the ability to pull our private keys, which is not really available with gold. Technically, people can take delivery of gold on these exchanges, but there's never been an organized attempt to do so preach. And also, let's not forget that the majority of the gold in the world is hoarded by the central bank. So keep that in mind, fam. Anyways, back to Max's quote. We tried to do it a few years ago. It crashed JP Morgan by gold and silver because after the 2008 financial crisis when JP Morgan ended up buying Bear Stearns effectively for nothing, they inherited this multimillion short silver position that Bear Stearns was managing at the behest of presumably the government. The government likes to stay involved. And so I did some calculations and it became clear if this short position was not covered and the price of silver got to $60 or $70 an ounce, it would bankrupt JP Morgan Chase. So we started this crash JP Morgan buy silver campaign. We got the price of silver from 15 bucks up to $50. What a legend. So we got it up to the old Hunt Brothers $50 level. And then the Fed of course came in and they changed the laws overnight to make it possible for these banks to have and carry much greater short positions on silver. So they printed up a lot of paper silver derivatives and they stopped the run on their bank and the price went back down to $15 or so. So we have seen that it is possible to force capitulation to the silver market, but at the end of the day, because of the ability to pull private keys, it is not like it is with Bitcoin. I don't think it'll ever succeed. Whereas with Bitcoin, you can pull your private keys. So there you have it. Very powerful words coming from Max Kaiser. And that's 100 % accurate. And why I don't trust the precious metals myself. Now, if Bitcoin and cryptocurrency didn't exist, I'd be all in on gold and silver because what other option would there be? But because there is Bitcoin, there is no second best as Michael Saylor once said, like real talk. Am I going to trust my life savings in gold when the powers that be can just manipulate it on a whim? In fact, they have been caught doing so, so many times. How many times has JP Morgan had to pay billion dollar or hundreds of millions of dollars in fines for being caught manipulating the precious metal market? I think that will continue. Now, Bitcoin is the only incorruptible money, hence why it is perfect money. There is a finite limited supply. And I mean, there's no greater alternative. There is no second best quoting the great Michael Saylor. And don't forget to check out crypto news alerts .net for the full premium experience with video and to participate in the live Q &A.

A highlight from 1373: BlackRock Bitcoin ETF Will Send Bitcoin to $180K by THIS Date
"In today's show, I'll be breaking down the latest technical analysis, as well as Bitcoin speculators are now saying that at least 69 ,000 all time high in play. But right now is the least amount owned by hodlers. We have to keep this in mind. We're also going to be discussing Max Kaiser's Congress speech about disarming the banksters along with their financial weapons of mass destruction, as well as Bitcoin friendly El Salvador sees bonds return soar to 70 percent thus far this year. In twenty twenty three, we're also going to be discussing a crypto analyst who forecast the big Bitcoin price move to forty thousand. I'll be breaking down his timeline, as well as rich dad Robert Kiyosaki doubles down on his hundred thousand dollar Bitcoin price call and says he shares a common enemy with BTC, quoting him right here, Bitcoin to one hundred thousand dollars, saying for years gold and silver is God's money. Bitcoin is the people's money. Bad news. If the stock and bond markets crash, gold and silver will skyrocket. The worst news is if the economy crashes Bitcoin to a million dollars, gold to seventy five thousand and silver to sixty thousand savers of fake US are F debt is too high. Mom, pop and kids are in trouble. I hope I'm wrong. Please take care. We're also going to be discussing breaking news. Fundstrats Thomas Lee on live TV, quoting him here. If the spot Bitcoin ETF gets approved, the clearing price of Bitcoin is one hundred and fifty to one hundred eighty thousand dollars. We'll also be taking a look at the overall crypto market, all this plus so much more in today's show. Yo, what's good, crypto fam? This is first and foremost, a video show. So if you want the full premium experience with video, visit my rumble channel at Cryptonewsalerts .net. Again, that's Cryptonewsalerts .net and welcome y 'all just tuning in. This is Pod episode number thirteen hundred and seventy three. This is August 16th, twenty twenty three. I'm your host, JV. We do have lots to cover. So let's dive in with our market watch for the day. As you can see here in your screen, got Bitcoin price maintaining that critical twenty nine thousand dollars support while ether also correcting but maintaining and holding on to eighteen hundred dollars and checking out coin market cap dot com. The current crypto market cap sits at just one point one five trillion with thirty one billion in volume at the past twenty four hours. Bitcoin dominance back on the rise at forty nine point two percent, with the ether dominance at 19 percent even and checking out the top one hundred crypto gainers for the past twenty four hours. Bone Shiba swap up 13 percent trading at a dollar fifty four, followed by say up eleven percent trading at 19 cents, followed by rocket pool up three percent trading just under twenty seven dollars and checking out next. As you can see here on your screen, we have crypto bubbles. We can see the top gainers for the past week. Bone leading the pack, pun intended, up fifteen percent, but massive losses for the overall altcoin market and checking out the crypto greed and fear index, which you can see here. We're currently rated at fifty two, which is neutral. Yesterday, a fifty three last week, a fifty neutral and last month, a fifty four, which is neutral. And welcome to those just joining us in today's live stream. So much to cover. Next up, we're going to dive into our Bitcoin technical analysis. Check out some of the charts, as well as some interesting facts with some hodlers as well. Bitcoin speculators are leading a period of exhaustion and apathy across the market. In the latest edition of the weekly newsletter, the week on chain analytics firm Glassnode wrote about waning conviction about Bitcoin's short term hodlers. Now, where are my long term hodlers at? Make some noise. And after several months of stagnant Bitcoin price action, frustration amongst market participants has led to predictions of deeper downside to come. The bulls remain unable to break the resistance, while the sellers likewise face multiple support zones in the form of trend lines between the current twenty nine thousand and twenty five thousand dollar levels. And amongst these is the short term hodler cost basis, or better known as the realized price. Short term hodlers are defined by Glassnode as entities hodling coins for one hundred and fifty five days or less and correspond to the more speculative end of the Bitcoin spectrum. investor Now, the short term hodler cost basis has function as support throughout twenty twenty three, but is rapidly rising and currently sits at twenty eight thousand six hundred dollars. Now, by contrast, the long term hodler cost basis reflects the aggregate purchase price of the most stubborn hodlers and thus far lower at twenty thousand three hundred. Quitting Glassnode, the separation between these two cost basis is an indicator that many recent buyers have a relatively equated acquisition price and continuing, researchers describe the market as being potentially top heavy with even a modest Bitcoin price come down now apt to send the short term hodler cohort back into the red. Quoting Glassnode again, on the macro scale, the supply distribution does resemble similar periods during the bear market recoveries of the past. However, a shorter time frame, it could be argued to be slightly top heavy market with many price sensitive investors at risk of falling into unrealized losses. Now, despite this, it appears that speculators have already started to reconsider their market exposure. Let me know if you have or if you're continuing to stack stats as you should. Quoting them here, we note that the supply held by the long term hodlers continues to increase, hitting an all time high of fourteen point six million BTC. So in direct contrast, short term hodler supply declined to multiyear lows at two point five six million BTC the week on chain added. So overall, this suggests that conviction of Bitcoin investors does remain impressively high and few are willing to liquidate their holdings. Are you one of them? Let me know in the comments right down below. Now, the last time the short term hodlers had such little market presence was in October of twenty twenty one, just before the all time high of sixty nine thousand dollars. And it is very interesting as we see the short term hodlers continue to sell and the long term hodlers continue to stack stats as they should. I say the smart money are the whales and the long term hodlers. Would you agree? Let me know your honest opinion. Let me know your honest thoughts in the comments right down below. And now let's discuss our next story of the day. And that's Max Keiser's rant when he spoke in Congress back in January of two thousand and nine, talking about disarming the bankers and their financial weapons, a mass destruction, a very powerful speech given by Max. If you've got to hear this, let me know. I posted and transcribed it on what was formerly known as Twitter, now known as X this morning, quoting Max Keiser. This is an important day as we review the situation with respect to disarming bankers. After the first Great Depression, Congress passed the Glass -Steagall Act. The purpose of the resolution was to disarm bankers as well as brokers. Now, never again would they be allowed to destroy the global financial system. I'm here to warn you that they have, in fact, rearm themselves with a deadly toxic debt instrument known as a derivative. I asked for this session today to support the core assessment made by FAME investor Warren Buffett. He said derivatives are financial weapons of mass destruction and that have apparently been devised by madmen. These instruments pose a mega catastrophic risk. Ladies and gentlemen, don't wait for the mushroom cloud of bad debts to explode over our financial system. Let's disarm the bankers before it's too late. Very powerful words coming from Max Keiser. And again, this is circa January of two thousand and nine, right around the time of the Bitcoin Genesis block, which was released after the 2008 financial crisis. And lo and behold, you can consider him a prophet because everything he was talking about is exactly what's been going on. Financial terrorism as it continues as the central bankers of the world continue to print money until the wheels fall off. Massive shout out to Max Keiser and Stacey Herbert. As you know, I'm huge fans of them both via the Kaiser report as they were the first one to cover Bitcoin with international coverage back when it was trading between a dollar to ten dollars. This is going all the way back in 2011, so literally was at 14 or 13 years ago. So much respect to the high priest of Bitcoin. And with that being shared, fam, now let's discuss our next story of the day. Now that we covered Max versus the banksters and that is El Salvador and their success with their bonds, which have been released as returns soar to 70 percent thus far this year. Check it out. El Salvador, which adopted Bitcoin as the legal tender back in 2021, has seen its dollar bound outperform the majority of the emerging markets with a 70 percent return thus far this year. The massive rally of the bond has now drawn interest from several institutional giants, which include JPMorgan Chase. Take that tapeworm Jamie Dimon, as well as Eaton Vance and PGIM Fix, promoting President Najib Okele to say, I told you so. Now, apart from the institutional giants, the likes of Lord and EBIT and also Neuberger German or I'm sorry, Berman Group LLC and UBS Group AG have also added debt security since April, according to Bloomberg. And also, Paolo, the chief technology officer of Bitfinex, told Cointelegraph that the performance of El Salvador bonds is a clear signal that the investors are supportive of the financial policies of the El Salvadoran government and demonstrates the renewed interest in investing in the El Salvador story while adding the following as the first company to receive a digital asset license, we are seeing significant interest in digital asset issuance and renewable energy investments, which the country has in abundance and is being used for Bitcoin mining and to provide more energy for the country's electrical grid. Now, the growing demand of El Salvador's debt security in 2023 is a quite contrast to its performance a couple of years ago when it first adopted Bitcoin as the legal tender. That's right. They've come a long way. The Bitcoin adoption created uncertainty amongst investors who bet against the country's bonds with several financial agencies, casting a shadow of doubt on the country's financial future. In February of 2022, the American Credit Agency agency Fitch lowered the country's long term issuer default rating from a B minus to CCC, inciting policy uncertainty in the Bitcoin adoption, along with an eight hundred million dollar debt payment due for January of twenty twenty three. Now, keep in mind, El Salvador did pay that eight hundred million dollar debt in full within the due maturing time to start off the year, raising confidence in the country's bonds yet again. And the president, Bukele, at the time noted that they had proven every finance pundit wrong, who doubted whether they would be able to pay their debts in a time after Bitcoin adoption, quoting Bukele here. He actually shared this in January of twenty twenty three in the past year. Almost every legacy international news outlet said that because of our Bitcoin bet, El Salvador was going to default on its debt by January of twenty twenty three, since we had an eight hundred million dollar bond maturing today, literally hundreds of articles. Never forget that. Now, the rise in confidence of investors is visible from the bonds performance throughout the year. And during the same time, El Salvador also passed a landmark crypto bill paving the way for the infamous Bitcoin backed volcano bonds. Let's freaking go. Now, El Salvador and its president have been at the receiving end of criticism every single day since they first adopted Bitcoin in September of twenty twenty one as legal tender, along with the United States dollar financial pundits predicted that the Bitcoin adoption will further strain El Salvador's financial conditions. However, to the contrary, within two years, the debt security of the state has become a hot cake amongst institutional giants, the same that once advised against buying it. So I'll say it for Bukele. I told you so. So there you have it. Let's go El Salvador mass adoption. Bring it. In which country do you think will likely be next to adopt Bitcoin as a legal tender and follow in the footsteps of Bukele and El Salvador? Let me know your honest thoughts in the comments right down below. Now, let's discuss a forty thousand dollar Bitcoin price prediction, as well as a timeline, which I'm going to be sharing with you right here. If you think Bitcoin is likely to hit this forty thousand target, let me know. Now, while he followed analyst Pizzino is bullish on Bitcoin as the flagship crypto asset trades in a narrow range for the past few days or we could say for the past few weeks in a new video, he tells his three hundred thousand YouTube subs the Bitcoin can climb by over 40 percent from the current level between now and September of twenty twenty four. Considering September is only two weeks away, that would be pretty enticing winning it. The crypto analyst says that his upside target of forty two thousand is the range midpoint or the 50 percent level between the Bitcoin all time high of sixty nine thousand and Bitcoin's twenty twenty two low of around fifteen five. Quitting him here, it is possible that we see a test of forty two thousand happen within the period between now and September of twenty twenty four. So in basically twelve, thirteen months, a test of the 50 percent level of forty two thousand two hundred and then a retreat. Do you think we're likely to rise on up to that forty thousand mark? Let me know. And after appreciating to over forty thousand Bitcoin could thereafter correct either mildly or substantially, according to the analyst quoting him again, it could be a small retreat like back here, June to August of twenty sixteen, where it tested seven hundred and then came back to five hundred. Or it could be a deep retreat where it tested all the way up to fourteen thousand in June of twenty nineteen, when the 50 percent level was only eleven thousand five hundred. And then it came all the way back down to four thousand in March of twenty twenty, thanks to no vid. And to watch this video with the analyst predicting Bitcoin can rise to one hundred and sixty one thousand, check the show notes below the video in the description. And please do let me know if you agree or disagree with the crypto analyst. And now let's discuss our next story of the day, and that's the one hundred thousand dollar Bitcoin price prediction from Rich Dad author Robert Kiyosaki. In fact, he even claims that Bitcoin can now go to a million dollars. So let's break this down and then we'll dive into our feature story of the day with the BlackRock ETF, which can send the Bitcoin price parabolic over six hundred percent, surpassing a whopping price target of one hundred and eighty thousand dollars. But first, Robert Kiyosaki, he stands behind his call that the Bitcoin price will put a new all time high and run all the way up to one hundred thousand. Let me know if you agree or disagree with the author. Now, Kiyosaki refers to Bitcoin as the people's money very commonly and says that those who save in U .S. dollars are likely screwed. And that was the nice way of putting it. Reading his tweet here, Bitcoin to one hundred thousand dollars, saying for years gold and silver is God's money. Bitcoin is the people's money preach bad news if the stocks and bond market crash gold and silver to skyrocket the worst news if the economy crashes Bitcoin to a million dollars. Now, that doesn't sound like so such bad news to me. That would be extremely brilliant news for the Bitcoin price to go to a million. But I understand an economy crash is not good. But he continues gold to seventy five thousand and silver to sixty thousand. I do not see those precious metals rising like that, especially considering they're controlled by the central bankers and the cartels have been controlling precious metal markets for a very long time. But nonetheless, I digress. He continues, savers of fake U .S. dollars are effed. Debt is too high. Mom, pops and kids are in trouble. And I hope I am wrong, but please take care. I mean, very bold words coming from Kiyosaki. Also, in an interview he did with Stansberry Research's Daniela Cambone, he warned up the idea of Bitcoin as he has lost all trust in institutions running the country, quitting him here. I like Bitcoin because we have an enemy in common breach. It's called the federal government breach, the Treasury and the Fed and Wall Street breach. I don't trust them. If you trust them, save dollars and get yourself a nice bond. I do not trust those guys. How many can relate with Rich Dad earlier in the year? Kiyosaki also predicted Bitcoin would eventually skyrocket to one hundred thousand per coin, highlighting that the king crypto does not need the intervention of the government to sustain its value. So there you have it. Come in directly from Rich Dad. Let me know if you agree or disagree with the Rich Dad, Poor Dad author. And with that being shared, now let's dive into our featured story of the day. That's everything surrounding the BlackRock ETF, a spot Bitcoin ETF being approved in the United States. Tom Lee was just recently interviewed and says he believes it will automatically send the Bitcoin price somewhere between one hundred and fifty and one hundred and eighty thousand dollars. So let's break this down, shall we? And here this is on this interview. I also already transcribed it for your benefit here. And I'm going to start reading so we don't have to play that sound clip because it's copyrighted. Anyways, he's asked, I always like hearing your price targets. Because you are always so fearless. When are you or where are you on Bitcoin by the end of next year? Let's say. And he responded, well, it's a spot Bitcoin gets approved, referring to the spot Bitcoin ETF. I think the demand will be greater than the daily supply of Bitcoin. So the clearing price, which is done by Sean Farrell, who is our crypto digital strategist, is over one hundred and fifty thousand dollars. In fact, it could even be one hundred and eighty thousand per Bitcoin. And then when asked, that's only if the spot ETF gets approved. Tom Lee responded, yes, a spot US because a spot Bitcoin ETF is approved already outside the US, which is a fact. And then asked, but if it's not approved, then are we just lingering at around twenty nine thousand in which he responded? There is still upside cast because of the halving next year. So you'll have a drop in supply again. And so the clearing price has to increase, but it won't be six figures. So he's ultimately saying the approval of the spot Bitcoin ETF, regardless if it's BlackRock or any of the others, such as Fidelity or ARK Invest, 21 shares, etc., will absolutely send the Bitcoin price to a minimal of one hundred and fifty thousand. And that target could even be as high as one hundred and eighty thousand. But he's also saying in the same token, if Gary Gensler and the SEC does not approve it by the time of the halving, do not expect a six figure Bitcoin price, but expect the price to go up because of the drop in supply as well as the gain and demand. I think the analyst makes a very great point. Now, he was also interviewed a few weeks ago and he discussed this price action occurring within nine months. So I wanted to give you that time frame because the Bitcoin ETF is scheduled to be released sometime. Not the ETF, but the halving is scheduled to be in April of twenty twenty four. So anyways, here's what he had to share in this interview. Current Bitcoin market is in balance with twenty five million in daily block rewards and twenty five million in daily demand, incremental ETF demand. Sean Farrell, their analyst, believes that twenty five billion dollars of demand is possible within the first year. So this is how they come to these numbers. This is one hundred million dollars in daily demand. This would bring the daily demand to one hundred and twenty five million while the daily supply is only twenty five million. So the implied equilibrium price would need to rise so that the daily supply matches the daily demand. Equilibrium analysis suggests that a clearing price is one hundred and forty to one hundred and eighty thousand per Bitcoin before the April twenty twenty four halving. Now, if you'd like to see that come to fruition, make some noise in the live chat. Now he continues. Generally, this idea of higher equilibrium price is consistent. Sean Farrell estimates that the flow multiplier for Bitcoin is four to five X and on the odds of a spot Bitcoin ETF finally getting approved in the United States after numerous rejections of the past year. Here's what we had to share. Bitcoin ETF could finally get approved. Sean Farrell sees the BlackRock effect, making it this far more likely today. Now, BlackRock, we all know, is the world's largest asset manager, and they say they have roughly 10 trillion or more in assets under management. So there you have it. Very bullish predictions coming from Tom Lee and on regards to this BlackRock ETF being approved. But I'd love to know your thoughts. Do you think that the BlackRock Bitcoin ETF will be approved within the next nine months before the Bitcoin halving scheduled to be in April of twenty twenty four? Let me know why or why not. And I'm going to start reading all of your comments out loud. And don't forget to check out CryptoNewsAlerts .net for the full premium experience with video and to participate in the live Q &A.

A highlight from 1370: Why You MUST Own at least 1 Bitcoin - Jack Mallers
"Welcome, everyone. In today's episode, I'm going to be breaking down the latest technical analysis, as well as MicroStrategy marks three years of holding Bitcoin with four and a half billion dollars in Bitcoin and company stock, literally up two hundred and ten plus percent. We'll also be discussing PayPal executive says that their new stablecoin will be made available for DeFi in the future, as well as Bitcoin as a ticking time bomb set for historic expansion, as rare indicator sends a signal. I'll be breaking this down for you. We'll also be discussing breaking news of fun. Strad investor note says Bitcoin can hit one hundred and eighty thousand dollars before the upcoming block reward, having scheduled for April of twenty twenty four. We'll also be discussing the top reasons why the Bitcoin price will smash a million dollars per coin, as well as why you must own at least one Bitcoin right now. We'll also be taking a look at the overall crypto market, all this plus so much more in today's show. What's good, crypto fam? This is first and foremost, a video show. So if you want the full premium experience with video, visit my rumble channel at CryptoNewsAlerts .net. Again, that's Crypto News Alerts .net. And welcome, everyone. Just tuning in. This is Pod episode number thirteen hundred and seventy. I'm your host, JV. Today is August 13th, twenty twenty three. Kicking off today's episode here with our market watch, we can see Bitcoin still holding strong onto twenty nine thousand four hundred, but slightly consolidating for the day. We also have Ether barely back in the green, trading above eighteen hundred and fifty dollars, along with BNB and XRP also in the green. And checking out CoinMarketCap .com, the current crypto market cap sits at one point one seven trillion dollars, with about 17 billion in volume in the past twenty four hours, with the Bitcoin dominance at forty eight point seven percent and the Ether dominance at eighteen point nine percent. And checking out the top one hundred crypto gainers in the past twenty four hours, we have room lead in the pack up twelve percent, trading at a dollar thirty seven, followed by a ton up about seven percent, trading at a dollar forty three, followed by Pepe up four and a half percent and checking out the top one hundred crypto gainers for the past week. Mostly, I'd say we got a few in the green, but also probably equally as much in the red. Some of the biggest losers include Koss and Bone, with some of the top gainers for the day, the same as the week with Tun, Rune and Pepe. And checking out the Crypto Greed and Fear Index, we're currently rated a fifty four neutral, same as yesterday. Last week was a forty nine and last month was a sixty in greed. So there you have it. How many of you are currently bullish on the king crypto and have been taking advantage of this recent dip? Let me know in the comments right down below. And now let's dive into today's Bitcoin technical analysis and see what's happened with the continuous sideways trading action. Most of the alts are also quiet today on Sunday, similar to how they perform yesterday on Saturday, except for Rune and Tun taking the lead. Now, the past few weeks went in a rather unventful fashion for typically more volatile crypto asset. This past Monday saw some movements as Bitcoin dipped below twenty nine thousand to mark the weekly low. However, it went on an offensive almost immediately and had surged past thirty thousand by the time Wednesday came. But that was short lived. More volatility was expected on Thursday when the US CPI numbers were set to come out. Yet that wasn't the case. Bitcoin remained at just under thirty thousand, where it had retrace hours just before that. And then the following days were quite stagnant. Once again, Bitcoin stood still within the same tight range of between twenty nine and twenty nine five. And expectedly, the weekend didn't provide anything different, given the typically lower trading volume. So there you have it. I mean, it's been very boring sideways trading action. Nothing new. But I feel once we can break thirty two, we're likely to continue marching on up, breaking the annual high. And there's not much resistance between thirty two and forty. So do keep that in mind as well. Now for the latest regarding the first publicly traded company to put Bitcoin on their balance sheet, which is MicroStrategy. They're still holding their four and a half billion dollars worth of BTC. Let's break this down. As you can see here, it's been three years since MicroStrategy first accumulated their BTC. Michael Saylor spearheaded the strategy of making Bitcoin their primary Treasury Reserve asset, directing the firm to buy twenty one thousand four hundred and fifty four BTC for two hundred and fifty million at an individual price of roughly eleven thousand six hundred dollars on August 11th of 2020. That's when it all began. Now, in the up and down years since MicroStrategy continued to consistently invest in the top crypto asset, becoming the largest institutional holder of Bitcoin. And as of July 31st, the firm holds one hundred and fifty two thousand eight hundred BTC acquired for a total cost of roughly four and a half billion dollars at an average individual price of twenty nine thousand six hundred and seventy two. So they're roughly at their break even point. Interestingly enough, now Saylor was MicroStrategy's chief executive when the company first bought Bitcoin, but now serves as its executive chair after stepping back from the CEO role last year. The MicroStrategy stock is up more than two hundred and ten percent since August 10th. So keep that in mind. And that since 2020, the day before it made the announcement to purchase Bitcoin, MicroStrategy is currently priced at three hundred and eighty four dollars per share, according to Market Watch. And it hasn't been an entirely smooth ride. However, keep in mind, MicroStrategy is down more than 70 percent from the three year high of eleven or one thousand three fifteen, which it hit on February 9th of twenty twenty one, referring to the stock right as Bitcoin was in the midst of that ascendant bull run. And in June of twenty twenty two, MicroStrategy faced concerns it would receive a margin call on a Bitcoin backed loan, though those fears never materialized and seemed to be nothing more than FUD. And in a margin call, a trader or investor is required to put up more funds to avert the closure or liquidation of a leveraged position. And I think when those FUD rumors were coming out, Michael Saylor said unless the Bitcoin price dips all the way to three thousand, we are not getting liquidated because they had more assets to back it. So it was nothing more than FUD at the end of the day. But very interesting. I think MicroStrategy will continue being one of the largest huddlers of Bitcoin in the world. They're second in line to Grayscale, which controls over four hundred thousand BTC. And at this time being there's no spot Bitcoin ETF in the United States. The next best closest thing is to owning MicroStrategy stock. And of course, Michael Saylor is very bullish on that. Now, let's discuss the latest regarding the PayPal stablecoin, which is titled PYUSD. They've been announcing some plans for DeFi. And we also had some analysts recently come out predicting due to the launch of the PayPal stablecoin because their audience is so large, hundreds of millions of people that use PayPal on a regular basis, active users, that it can send the Bitcoin price to a quarter million dollars per coin. That was a prediction from Charlie Shrem. I covered a few episodes ago. If you missed that, be sure to check that out. Now, an insider from PayPal says the firm's new stablecoin will ultimately launch on DeFi platforms sometime in the future. In the new interview on the Unchained Pod, Jose Fernandez, PayPal's senior vice president of blockchain, crypto and digital currencies, told the host Laura Shin that the firm intends for their stablecoin, which was launched earlier in the month, to be available on crypto exchanges and compatible with the DeFi ecosystems, quoting them here. I think DeFi will be a part of the first wave in the sense that we want to go where crypto users are using stable coins today and DeFi as a use case for that. So as of today, you can only get the PYUSD on the PayPal wallet. We are ramping up the product, but definitely the intention is that it will be available in the main exchanges. And when the distribution is available, then the folks will be able to use it for the traditional use cases. The Ponte goes on to share that their stablecoin is already compatible with Ethereum wallets as it is technically an ERC20 token, ultimately meaning on the Ethereum blockchain, and that it's fully backed in compliance with New York regulations. Quoting him again, the stablecoin PYUSD is an ERC20 token. It's deployed on the Ethereum blockchain and it can be sent outside to wallets that enable ERC20 tokens. Now, there is definitely an aspect of it that has to do with being fully backed and regulated as a stablecoin. As you know, we are issued out of New York. Paxos is the issuer and the token is approved by the New York Department of Financial and Security New York has very clear and strict requirements in terms of KYC, know your customer, and anti -money laundering provisions that require the ability to be able to have the right control in place. So there you have it. And to watch this entire interview, they did check the show notes below the video in the description. I will give you a little disclaimer. I do not trust PayPal as far as I can throw them. I had a lot of people ask me, where can I get the stablecoin? It seems currently only available on PayPal, but I wouldn't be holding it. I'd prefer the real thing, which is Bitcoin the only decentralized crypto asset because PayPal, just as they can freeze your funds and freeze your PayPal account. They've done that to me before in the past, probably like a decade ago back in the day. They could also freeze your stablecoin the same way because all it is is a digital version of the dollar. So that's not so enticing or exciting to me. But the reason it's fruitful and bullish for the entire industry, it can help usher in that mass adoption, considering PayPal has hundreds of millions of active use active users. That's why this is a pretty bullish story. But anyways, now let's talk about the ticking time bomb, followed by one hundred and eighty thousand dollar prediction from Fundstrat at the time of the halving less than nine months away. And then I'll be sharing the latest and greatest from the one and only Jack Mallers and why you should own a Bitcoin and why the Bitcoin price is trending towards seven figures. Let's break it down. And yeah, if you're just joining us, make sure to say hello in the live chat. Don't be a stranger, as this is a live and interactive show. But yeah, let's break this story down. As you can see, while he followed analysts as Bitcoin is gearing up for a historic move to the upside, now that has rarely seen the indicator has flash. This anonymous analyst known as Credible Crypto shares that Bitcoin is going through a period of record low volatility or a compression phase, which he says will ultimately lead to historic expansion. Send it. Let's go. He shares a chart, which you can see here, along with fellow analyst tech dev who points out that Bitcoin's three week chart is approaching compression levels that previously signaled the start of the bull markets since 2012. Quoting credible here, historic compression leads to historic expansion. Imagine looking at this chart and thinking, yeah, ten thousand dollars incoming, a ticking time bomb till bear extinction. BTC. That's what's up. Now, while many Bitcoin bulls have lost confidence due to the Bitcoin uneventful price action, credible says Bitcoin is simply consolidating, which should be considered bullish, quoting him again, seeing a lot of if we are so bullish, why aren't we moving up? The bulls don't have the strength to push the price higher. This is bearish. But when the price is moving sideways, it means that neither bears nor bulls are in the driver's seat. Consolidation is, by definition, neutral buyers and sellers have reached an equilibrium. Now, nine out of ten times consolidation structures resolve in the direction of the trend that preceded them. We have been in a very clean, obvious uptrend since fifteen thousand dollars. So by default, then one should expect this consolidation over the last month to resolve to the upside. And he continues, your default stance on Bitcoin here should be bullish, in my opinion, unless we start breaking bullish market structure. For example, the first and lowest timeframe level of the bullish market structure that matters is twenty four eight marked, as you can see here in this chart. So there you have it. How many of you agree with credible crypto aren't currently bullish, even though the price action seems boring and continues to trade sideways? Let me know your honest thoughts in the comments right down below, which leads us to our next story of the day. That's Fundstrat's prediction of one hundred and eighty thousand dollar Bitcoin price by the time of the next halving, keeping in mind that halving is scheduled to be sometime in April 2024, virtually meaning less than nine months away. Let's break this down and shut up to Tom Lee over at Fundstrat. So I actually shared this in a tweet here this morning. Fundstrat investor note says Bitcoin could hit one hundred and eighty thousand before the upcoming block reward halving in April of twenty twenty four. And also interesting, an Indian analyst thinks that World War Three had already begun expecting the BRICS economic bloc to merge with the Shanghai Corporation Organization. And also it is shared that the financial services company attributes this projected five hundred and twenty one percent Bitcoin price hike from the current levels to the rising demand fueled mainly by the anticipated approval of a Bitcoin ETF, which I know is on everyone's mind. We know there's literally hundreds of trillions of dollars in the total addressable market, much of which can be come in pouring directly into BTC. So let's break down some more of these numbers. Fundstrat's and Pharrell's projections follow the mid -July forecast from the banking giant Standard Chartered. And guess who is the primary shareholder of Standard Chartered? You guessed it, BlackRock fam. They predict one hundred and twenty thousand dollar Bitcoin price by the end of next year in twenty twenty four. Now, Pharrell's analysis points to a Bitcoin ETF potentially adding an extra hundred million dollars in daily demand. I honestly feel that is conservative, but hey, now why the impending halving will slash the daily mining rewards down to a mere twelve million, quoting them here with a spot Bitcoin ETF launch daily demand will reach one hundred and twenty five million while the daily supply is only twenty five million. The implicit equilibrium price would need to increase so that the daily supply matches the daily demand. Now, equilibrium analysis suggests a clearing price of one hundred and forty to one hundred and eighty thousand per BTC before the halving in April of twenty twenty four. And moreover, Fundstrat envisions the possibility for a BlackRock Bitcoin ETF to become one of the most monumental ETF launches ever. Let's go. Possibly outstripping the QQQ ETF's thirty six billion in first year inflows. I think we crush it personally. The firm is of the opinion that Bitcoin ETF assets might outshine precious metal ETFs one hundred percent. Now that's a market worth two hundred and thirty billion dollars and eventually become a category worth more than three hundred billion. That's a given, right? However, approval for a spot Bitcoin ETF could enable manipulation akin to allegations about precious metal ETFs like gold and silver. A physically backed Bitcoin ETF is expected to boost crypto adoption as well as the prices. There is a chance it could mimic the gold and silver and allowing leverage of fictional supplies Bitcoin to manage futures positions, a .k .a. through derivatives. Now, when the price rises too fast, this imaginary Bitcoin supply could be dumped to tamp the global prices down. But for a while now, Fundstrat has been prophesizing a leap into the six digit territory as far as the Bitcoin price action, though these bold predictions have yet to materialize. Also, keep in mind, back in May of twenty twenty one, David Grider, the firm's chief digital asset strategist, confidently asserted that the target Bitcoin price of one hundred thousand per coin remained intact. Send it. He further envisioned Ethereum scaling to ten thousand per coin, reflecting on the broader crypto landscape. Grider's perspective from two years prior foresaw the entire crypto economy accelerating towards a staggering five trillion dollar milestone. So there you have it. Let me know if you agree or disagree with Fundstrat and their analysts that the Bitcoin price is likely to hit that target of between one hundred and twenty twenty four. That Bitcoin halving in April of twenty twenty four, that would obviously be the calm before the storm. And could you imagine the BlackRock Bitcoin ETF virtually being approved pre halving? That's going to send Bitcoin to a whole new stratosphere, in my humble opinion. I predict that we hit the peak cycle high in twenty twenty five, just considering the history doesn't necessarily repeat, but often tends to rhyme. And I remember the Bitcoin halving of twenty sixteen. It was the year following in twenty seventeen. We hit the high for that cycle of roughly twenty thousand. Then like clockwork four years later from the twenty sixteen halving in twenty twenty, we had the next halving and the following year Bitcoin hit the current all time high of sixty nine thousand. Hence, I'm predicting a multiple six figure Bitcoin price by twenty twenty five. Let me know if you agree or disagree in the comments below. And like I said, I'll read everyone's comments out loud at the end of the show. And with that being shared, fam, now let's discuss our final breaking story of the day. Jack recently Mallers did a podcast episode on his new podcast, Shout Out to Jack. I transcribed it because I find it very valuable. He was also interviewed on CNBC and talks about how hyperinflation will send the Bitcoin price to a million dollars. So here's some of the highlights and my transcription from his interview I have to share with you and then we'll dive into our live Q &A. So here we go. Here's what Jack Mallers had to share in this interview. If silver is going to 1000 X, I will walk into my kitchen right now and I will melt all of my silverware and I will sell it at market. If gold is going to rally, Elon Musk will find more on Mars. This is a super important point. Bitcoin is the only monetary instrument in the history of our species that is fixed. It does not matter how much more demand comes into the asset class because no one will ever be able to make more than it. There are two things I can guarantee you in my life. Number one, that I'll die. And number two, there will only ever be 21 million Bitcoin. And those are the two things that I could only value, which is my life and my Bitcoin. So it is the only fixed supply asset. It is not that complicated. It's going to go up because everything else can be issued more. The only thing that is clear to us and clear to our customers is that you cannot hold and save in dollars anymore. I think there is going to be a new era of the US dollar where inflation will enter and normalize 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 percent. The days of 2 percent inflation are over. The Fed really blew this thing up. You can call it inflation because the CPI is low to nonsense, right? Like the government is going to tell me how the dollar is inflating based upon a basket of instruments like my Netflix subscription or my Caesar salad doesn't actually tell me how well the dollar is doing or how much it's being devalued. Miami real estate does. Bitcoin does. Bitcoin is up over 50 percent this year. You're telling me the dollar isn't inflating. You're out of your mind. I am not listening to that. The Fed and the whole monetary system is based on trust and they constantly, they constantly break that trust. Preach. It would be the equivalent to there's a fire outside of my house. I smell the smoke and someone tells me, no, no, no, no. It's a bunch of teenagers putting on a bonfire. OK, but I hear one police siren. Are you sure it's a bonfire? Yeah, yeah, yeah. It's a bonfire. Now I hear 10 sirens, 100 sirens. My whole community is running out. I'm not going to get up and look outside the window and see what's going on. I don't believe them for a second. You have to be absolutely crazy to believe the Federal Reserve right now. They are full of it. And I don't have to because I own Bitcoin. There is no one that can deflate my instrument. I get to hold it, save in it. I know the monetary policy. I sleep like a baby, like the baby face that I am. I think you are crazy to believe the Fed and these swap lines and treating these assets at par. It is a gimmick. It is a scam. Very powerful words coming from Jack Mallers. Let me know if you agree or disagree. And as you can see, this post is going viral over on X. So be sure to share it and repost it. I greatly appreciate that. Now for some other thoughts regarding predictions coming from Jack Mallers as well. When he was speaking with CNBC's Power Lunch with Kelly Evans, the strike CEO discussed the role of Bitcoin in the ongoing banking crisis. And Mallers is convinced that the Bitcoin price will hit one million dollars per coin fueled by global hyperinflation. According to Mallers, the Fed has tarnished its name by printing more money to save the banking industry, despite claims to reduce inflation to 2 % as I just shared with you. And as such, Mallers expects the Bitcoin price to continue with higher demand and Mallers reiterated the fact that there will only ever be 21 million Bitcoin units, despite the increase in demand. Now, notably Mallers bashed the altcoin industry for being centralized with founders holding massive coins at the expense of the secondary market. And as such, Mallers thinks that altcoins are suitable for speculation and should ultimately be used to accumulate more BTC. Quoting him again here, my overall opinion is that the name of the game is to accumulate as much Bitcoin as possible. The alts are interesting, but a lot more speculative. I use them to accumulate more BTC. So there you have it. Let me know if you agree or disagree with Jack Mallers and his thoughts, what he had to share. Do you think that global hyperinflation will likely send the Bitcoin price thriving to seven figures per coin?

A highlight from Matt and Rich hold hands which is a sign of love and one step away from getting married. Cookie monster visited and got his hands in the jar in less than 3 min. There was a brain fart in the studio and guess who suffered.
"Hello all divine people, it's August 9, episode 409 from This Mic Rich, from This Mic Man, and you know what I'm gonna do, I'm gonna get this done and over, right in beginning, there we go, Cookie Monster, leave it here on the table, and see how fast it's gonna start disappearing, just gonna time it, Wednesday, we don't even wanna mention what's going on with the weather. Yeah, I saw with the video, somebody was driving car, and the asphalt was melting, it was melting on the tires on the car before, I don't know what the heck they're doing, but it's just getting really too much. It really is, hey did you see the big fires in Maui, I had no idea. That was the place where I spent a lot of time. You went to Maui? You know why? Yeah. I didn't know, I've been there a couple times, I love Maui. There's a rich carlton in Maui, and yeah, I was swimming right under, it's on a hill, and right under, and there's a beautiful beach, and that all getting burned out, Lahanya, Lahanya beach. Yeah, Lahanya, that's a beautiful, they said it, there was people there jumping into the ocean, I mean the fire went right up to the coast. I was staying in Hyatt. Wow. Yeah. Do you like, Hawaii is one of my favorite places. After I left, I was like okay, I'm moving there, and then I kind of reconsider. Yeah, because I don't think I could really just do an island life, could you? Yeah, I don't know, I could, but you know, Naples is like an island. Yeah, you love it. You haven't been anywhere else, what are you talking about? You haven't tried living anywhere else. I have so much stuff, it's just moving would be a problem. Yeah, it would. That's why you've seen. 26 years of collection. Well, you've seen what's happened with me, I've moved across the country about seven times. Now they have three boxes, and sixteen guns. But I, you know, I've scaled down so I can just pick up and put everything in my car and bounce. Yeah. I like that. I need a circus. But every time, yeah, you need, you probably need about eight semis. Yeah, like a circus. But you're prepared, you got something for everything. Yeah, I got everything. I mean, I can buy a farm and I will be okay. Oh yeah. And you have the intelligence, I mean, I'm not blowing smoke up your ear. You think so? Yeah, you actually have the intelligence to use this stuff. My father, he always said, you know, don't forget where you come from and learn and learn and learn. You have to know, as a farmer, you have to know 99 trades plus one. You know what that is. That makes 100. Yeah, you know what it is. Whoa, you got to water what you're planting. 99 trades plus one. What's the one? Being poor. Oh yeah. You know, that's... Farming's a hard work. Oh, you have no idea. I know I don't, because I don't do it. Never done it. Yeah. Yeah, it's crazy. You just put it in the ground and wait. My kind of farming is going to Publix and going to the, you know, vegetable and fruit produce area. Publix is a pleasure. That's my farming. It's your pleasure.

She had two boys before my mum but they passed away at an early age But although my mother was a sickly child, what happened was when you had a sickly child, people would come and they would say well you had to pay for a doctor, so people used to grow herbs and stuff in their garden and say well try this try that, this one might work, that might work Obviously my mum survived because she's here today But because she was the oldest child and my grandmother was pregnant with other children, she had to do most of the housework and cooking and cleaning at an early age My grandfather, obviously he had to work so by the time she was five she was standing on a chair cooking and cleaning, cooking and washing up and all sorts of things, but then in those times that was a woman's role anyway, so she was just being trained to be a mother and a wife when she grew up Although she had also had brothers and sisters to look after because her mum's pregnancy wasn't really she wasn't well when she was pregnant, she was always sick in bed for nine months Wow, that's been hard Yeah, so and then obviously my grandfather had to work the land so yeah, but then she went to school but then she had to leave school when she was fifteen because her parents wanted, my grandparents wanted her to look after the young ones Yeah, aw That didn't actually work out, now this isn't actually in the book It didn't work out because a wealthy teacher came to see my grandfather and my mum was sixteen and he wanted to marry my mum

"In Columbia earlier this year, no diamond Miller, the two three work like a charm for a half until South Carolina made some outside shots and then just dominated the old boards. But Maryland is absolutely rolling. To me, compared to other matchups that South Carolina has had all year. And in this tournament, there's a, there's a 10% chance in my opinion that Marilyn wins this game. 10% is probably fair. I don't think I would go any higher than 10%. Yeah, I mean, I think not having to have a Miller in that first matchup. It's a lot different than that original matchup that they played earlier. This season. And I do think Marilyn has had time to play their best basketball. I still think we've seen it like kind of coming down like I thought in that when were they beat Iowa handedly right before them and tournament we saw Marilyn defense look better than Maryland difference it was probably ever looked and then they went to the big tent better than that difference was not true to be found. So they still struggle with consistency and I definitely need like the Maryland team that plays the really good defense and the scoring wall and has diamond Miller to have that 10% chance of winning versus South Carolina. But I think if they bring that team then yeah, this can get interesting, but they got a pretty bad team and I think that's the first step because we don't see it consistently. So who's your pick? I'm going to South Carolina. I really don't. If South Carolina a lot is going to lose, I think it's going to be in the final four of the national championship. I don't think it's going to be in the regional. Yeah, I'm taking Marilyn. All right. We've seen how it goes. We've seen how it goes by. When I pick a big upset in the past and the first two rounds, I can't go zero for four. Well, I definitely could. Either way. All right, well, Megan, this was a blast. I'm excited. I'm sure I'll be messaging you throughout Friday and Saturday about how frustrating I am or how frustrating it is when a team I want to perform is a performing. But yeah, and then so what next time we talk, we'll see you in probably be in Dallas. Yeah. Yeah.

"I have Virginia tech in the elite 8 and I had Tennessee losing to Iowa state in the round of 32. But because I'm dumb, Tennessee does have a win this year against LSU. Do I have that right? That's one in 8 against top 25 opponents. And I think their win. Yeah, they beat LSU by two. So I know they have it in them to be a top top crust team. And the way they're playing right now, they're putting up a ton of points, and I kind of don't believe in Virginia tech and oh my gosh, I talk myself into picking Tennessee. No. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you, Logan. For letting me favor the best uniforms in all of basketball, I'm going to take the hokeys in this one. I just like I like what they're doing. I like their brand of basketball and I see it happening. Tennessee is very threatening though, so I get it. Final match up and this one is interesting. I think because this is a team who is weirdly been written off, even though they've been the final four perennials, first longest most fans have been alive at this point. Number three Ohio State. Number two UConn were all the way out in Seattle. I know that sort of feels like a home game for you, 'cause super and stuff. But it's not quite, but who knows? Who do you got?

"Mean if you're looking for a soundtrack for a post-apocalyptic wasteland that song hey i think that's what merle travis intended he did he was like. I want somebody to shoot some super mutants while listening to the song. That's my dream anyway. So this is. It's interesting because the song is still relevant and still well known and this particular recording has endured since nineteen fifty-five like people still know and it's still an important recording and it was a huge hit but like it might never have happened. The the record company insisted that it be written and then another record company insisted that it'd be recorded it was released as the b side. Dj's in the audience kind of made it the hit that it was and it's interesting because i've never really i've always thought like the art versus business. Kind of thing is fairly modern thing. I just assumed that in the forties. Everyone is like just make records. But it's also rare that you hear the argument that that the contractual obligations right. Maybe great art happen right. Well yeah i mean. I think it was just a lot of weird twist of fate. I mean it was like you know they were like write some songs and then a very good talented songwriter did and so he wrote a good song. And then you know this guy. Obviously ernie pick good song. He was already singing. It wasn't like it came out of nowhere. But yeah i mean i think honestly like i think. The art versus commerce like divide. I think commerce was winning way more in the forties right. That's what i was gonna say. Yeah because i was a time of like you know there are singers songwriters. Don't don't get a big head about it like you're you're either one or the other so the most bar and there was there was there was very rarely any ownership to the singers right or the songwriters for their for their work. I know i think. Pete seger had a big Had a big like falling out or like a like a suit about ownership but later the concept of like selling out. Like if you're a musician like that was a new concept. I mean this guy's like yeah. I'll be on tv around lucy short. Whatever you like. There wasn't any idea of like no. I am at this sacred music. Artists couldn't possibly musician music artists. But yeah they should they should think of a name of guy a word for guys music guy i thought someone who like professionally sayings. I guess like a singing individual right.

Along with two other tennessee. Ernie ford songs shenandoah and dark as a dungeon. Which we mentioned before. That's another song written by merle. Travis that's also become a standard it's been recorded by several artists including dolly parton and that version is awesome on the same album that she recorded nine to five. I think it's all what's the name that album i think nine to five. And it's escaping me right. Now that's okay. It's not going to find it. And it's also been recorded by johnny cash on his folsom prison concert album. I have heard this song countless times. I am a big fallout fan. It's also in.

What well because all the only thing they seem to have done is when he was walking towards them they didn't step aside was an ambulance on the road. Right and you want to pull over. He way ran with a siren or but again it seems like maybe if you were mildly distracted by your phone and didn't get out of the way fast enough for this guy he'd punch your head in so here's the thing i feel bad about the fact that he's worked at a coal mine since the day was born and he does his sold to the company store. But he's really making me not feel as empathetic as i did in the beginning because he's literally murdering people for no reason no reason he can only joined so ever. They didn't get out of his way. Fast enough yes okay. Well you know. What are you gonna do he. I will say this. This verse might be the coolest thing that ever been written anywhere so great. Wow that's not what i thought you were going to say. I'm on board. Why do have to say. I mean if a guy is named after a state right god at least beyond your toes right your heads gotta be without a doubt for. What's this guy going to do right. So i guess in some ways the victims are to blame slight also anybody who has three names. Because i mean they're not they're nothing but trouble people but yeah but yeah. I mean if a guys called like you know alabama like rocco mcgilla mcgillicuddy. You got that right. What nationality well. That's why bad badly. Roy brown was so dangerous. Got four names so true. Yes i pad and bad yeah. They've doubled up on the backstory dad guys bad to the bone. Oh let me. Just say that that dan roy brown so okay so he confessed killer confesses to multiple murders a lot of men and by the way. Some of those men not made of mud. Some of them were sure but some of them were made of of blyden and skin. What'd you say. Muscle and blood never made out of muslim by and he knows that because he he absolutely away and he punches a guy. The guy's head goes flying off because another one made out of my math. People are in this town the funny thing if he if he did this this last verse an email that he did send around to everyone in the minds. And he says it's so matter-of-factly it's like you know re if you see me coming better step aside And then it says a lot of men didn't a lot of men died shrug emoji because he's so like it happens. You know right. It's going to says. I hope this email finds you. Well i murdered a bunch of dudes shrug emoji. Short emoji winky face one fist of iron. The other of steel. If the right one don't get you the left one wheel that will say. This line is super fund. It's really good so that line is really good. Also thinks pretty highly of himself tom again i feel like this is the world's first humble. It is all talk about is. How hard is life is how awesome it made. Yeah well he does confess to multiple murders. Saint awesome is in the eye of the beholder. Yeah well if he's like again he's like literally like i'm gonna i'm gonna i got two fists. Okay if you duck one. I'm going to punch you with the other one. Yeah one punch is gonna take and you're dead right. You know what i'm saying. So he can kill two guys who want you just like long like that. He doesn't knuckles. He has iron knuckles and steel knuckles. Right and the rest of his hand is also iron and steel that just the knuckles. Also i mean this again. Dan said i thought this song was going to be about what happens in the coal mines read. It's like to be a coalminer. They're all we know is that he was a baby coalminer and then after that he just talks about himself like he talks about his life. I'm i'm certain he's probably giving an interview to coal miners weekly. And you can't just talk about yourself. We want to know what it's like in the coal mine. I thought most of the song was going to be about reforming labor practice. I'm very upset to find. It's just a guy casually confessing murderer talking about about how he is and how much you likes murdering and how he's definitely got a murderer or he's talking about his negotiating tactics okay a metaphorical. I just wanted dental. What are you bringing to the bargaining table iron steel i I will say that. I am not in fact made out of mud and i got compromised number one compromise number to call my fists.

Then we're hoping to be able to roll some things out and and raise some funds through some raffles to a rocky mountain bighorn raffle. That we do is actually. That's market for them and and and I don't know that we've got the flyer posted just yet on the on our washington. Wsf website but it will be coming soon and it's those funds are dedicated for rocky mountain. Bighorns here in the southeastern part of the state.

"Disease you have a representative that goes out and works in domestic sheep world and talks to producers and Is that washington state involved in that. Is that corrector. Yeah for sure. And it's tied back into this back and black butte because we raise so much money in oregon raise money on their end as well that we had this surplus of funds beyond what they needed to do some capturing and coloring and testing and so we sat down and said. Where's where's their weakness. We don't have public. Land grazing in hells canyon in this area anymore. There's some Further south on idaho side but And so we. We realized the threat That can come from. Privately owned animals and so the three states idaho. Wsf washing wsf in oregon as well as the three state game agencies came together to collaborate and fund. A private lands mitigate or if you will to go out and contact anyone that has you know domestic sheep goats and do some you know if they're willing to do some testing or multiple testing and educate and communicate and so we just finished our second year of that and we're looking at improving it making it better making it more efficient. Obviously the last nine months have been a challenge with cova in sending folks out to do some testing. It's the ones who were just kind of getting getting back on that on that track but Yeah so it's exciting and we just had a conference call last week with with a bunch of the players With that including a couple local native american tribes as well that that are in the area. So yeah so. Hopefully it's something you know. We already want to apply the concept in central washington. Where are california bighorns are right now. It's the person's located down here. Where i live on the canyon working in all three states so a not perfect. We don't know it's kinda hard to measure the risk.
