Make sure you get notifications when we launch a new episode. You can join us live on Twitter Spaces Monday through Friday, starting at 7 a .m. Pacific and 10 a .m. Eastern every morning to become part of the conversation yourself. Thanks again. We look forward to bringing you the best Bitcoin content daily here on the Cafe Bitcoin Podcast. Good morning, everybody. Yeah, we're early. We started early. Why did we start early? Well, there's rumors swirling around on the interwebs that the the BlackRock iShares spot ETF has been approved. So we are going to cover this live and see what we can figure out as more comes to light. I have not seen a source yet, an official source. I see people on Twitter saying it. So we're going to find out what's going on with this. So where do we hear this? Where did this come up from? Thus far, it was Will Clemente. He's he has a post that he dropped approximately nine minutes ago. And he says the BlackRock iShares Bitcoin spot ETF has been approved by the SEC. I do not know where he is getting the information from. He says he's waiting for an official SEC statement. So I guess we're going to find out. Mickey, I see you bringing you up. Dombay, see you bringing you up. All right, by the way, the Bitcoin, the price of Bitcoin in United States dollars has spiked up to 29 ,000. It's come back down to 28 as I speak. So it's a $1 ,000 spike that lasted not long at all. less Looks like than 10 minutes, probably less than that. Morning, Dombay. Good morning, Mickey. How are you guys doing? What's up, guys? Can you hear me? Yep. What the hell is going on, man? First of all, sorry for being late today. All I got my time zones mixed up, but I'm in San Salvador. Bitcoin, so little rumors that the ETF has been approved. That's the rumor. I haven't seen any official statements yet from the SEC, but Will Clemente put it out as a tweet. He's a fairly credible dude. I'm not sure he's going to. I mean, who knows? It's Twitter. So the purpose of us starting early today is to figure out what the hell is going on and see if we can find some sources that back this up. Oh, so I didn't miss it. You guys just started early. Yeah, started early. Jacob, I'll call you on the side. Okay, sorry. Thanks, man. Mickey, good morning. What's up? Yes, I was just trying to figure out what the hell was going on. And then noticed you guys had started early. So it popped in. All right. Everybody's job as of this moment is to find official statements that back up this rumor. The Benzinga news desk is reporting this coin. What the hell is the name of it? Coin. Drop the tweet in here. Oh, it's Cointelegraph is reporting this as well. Some people are saying it's fake news. One like guys like, dude, this is really irresponsible. Maybe he just wanted to test and see if he could blow up a bunch of shorts. As of now, still rumors, something else that's happening. Apparently, Fox Business is projecting a possible crash not seen since the Depression, the Great Depression hitting in 2024. Let's see what that's all about. Can't wait. You can't wait for a depression like No, the crash. So you could buy the dip, man. Oh, well, you're assuming that Bitcoin goes down with it, right? It will initially. So I suppose you would have to be pretty you'd have to be just ready to roll. Because I don't think that would last. I think it would be a momentary dip. This is just my opinion, not financial advice, whatever. They get to take it for what it's worth, take it or leave it. But if there is a dip, I think it's not going to last very long and you should be ready because I've observed dips hit. They'll they'll last for a very short period of time. I've seen dips last 10 minutes and then they're gone. Other dips last a couple of hours, maybe, but definitely want to be ready. I see Alpha Zeta in the audience bringing you up. So so people are who are joining are up to speed on what we're talking about here. There is rumors floating around that the the ETF has been approved. So we're trying to establish the veracity of that. So everybody's mission at this moment is scouring for official sources that back this up. Colman, I see your request sent you an invite. Good morning, Hafa. How are you doing, man? Thanks for joining us, by the way. Good morning. I'm going to be here for just a few minutes. I have to hop off, but you know, given the news, just wanted to join, see if I can help in anything. We don't know if it's news yet. So far, as far as I can tell, it's a rumor. Do you know that it's news? Do you have some information? No, exactly. It's a rumor. The only thing I saw so far was the Cointelegraph news. I saw a couple of other sites posting something, but it just seems like they're repeating the same thing that Cointelegraph put out there. So hard to know. I tried to find on the SEC if there was anything, can't find anything. So I don't know. For now, it's looking more like it's unconfirmed than anything else. But let's see. We'll know soon. It looks like Eleanor Tarrant from Fox just tweeted BlackRock has confirmed that it's false. Their application is still under review. Well, there we go. Mystery salt. Thanks, Coleman. Appreciate that, man. All right. I suppose we could leave the topic as it is because there's going to be a while before people catch up to that. Coleman, can you repeat that again? Who was it that talked to BlackRock and confirmed that it is still under review and not approved? Eleanor Tarrant. She's with Fox Business. She posted a tweet about five, six minutes ago that says BlackRock has just confirmed to me that this is false. Their application is still under review. All right, got it. Take a note, sir. still While we're here and have Hoffa, we'd love to hear kind of your thoughts, Hoffa. We've discussed this before on the show. You know, ever since the announcement was made that BlackRock was even putting in an application for an ETF, like that was pretty big news in the space. And so we went through various different scenarios. Hoffa, for those of you who don't know, is CIO at Swann. Very, very smart guy. In my opinion, possibly the smartest guy in the company. Worked with Merrill, worked with Credit Suisse, I think, or Deutsche Bank, one of the two. Deutsche Bank and Goldman, yeah. Also, Goldman. This guy was coding at the age of seven. Very smart guy. Do you want to break down kind of what your thoughts are on what the possibilities are when this thing does get approved? If it does get approved, like in comparison, for example, to like GLD. For those of you who don't know, GLD was an iShares BlackRock baby, I believe, or it was SPDR. Either way, State Street, SPDR, either way, it went from basically a dead start to billions, many billions of dollars in a very short period of time. Should something like this get approved? Like, what are we looking at here? And does it change anything? Is it significant? Does it even matter? Yeah, so, you know, first and foremost, thanks, Alex. You're too kind. I doubt I'm the smartest guy at Swann. You know, there are a lot of very smart people here at the company. But that being said, a couple of things. I think, you know, before saying anything regarding the ETF, let's, you know, the price action today just be a reminder to everybody that plays around with leverage that you are going to get burned, right? One way or the other, people, their leverage out there, if you look at the liquidations, the short liquidations are just massive today. And I bet some of the loans as well, because people are starting to read this news, thinking that the market is going to go up, right? And they're leveraging on the upside. You are going to get burned. There is, as we say time and time again, there is no alternative. The best thing to do is to buy Bitcoin on leverage, put it in cold storage, leave it there and you just wait. It is as simple as that.
A highlight from BREAKING: Grayscale Wins Lawsuit Against SEC!
"Welcome back to The Breakdown with me, NLW. It's a daily podcast on macro, Bitcoin, and the big picture power shifts remaking our world. Welcome back to a special late breaking episode of The Breakdown. Today we received a decision which the crypto industry has been waiting for with absolutely bated breath. At 1023 this morning, Fox Business reporter Eleanor Tarrant tweeted, Breaking, a DC Court of Appeals has granted Grayscale's petition for review to convert its Grayscale Bitcoin trust into a spot Bitcoin ETF, and has ordered the SEC's order to be vacated. So what we're going to do today is break down what this case was about, the background and how it came to be, the immediate reactions from the community, the specifics of the decision, the immediate reactions of the community, and what happens next. To understand the context, let's actually go back in time a little bit all the way to last June, June 7, 2022. On that day, Grayscale tweeted, As we enter the final month before a response is due on our application to convert Grayscale Bitcoin trust into an ETF, we have retained Donald B. Verrilli Jr., former Solicitor General of the United States, as additional legal counsel. Grayscale continued, We want to ensure that we have the strongest possible team of legal minds ready to support our Bitcoin ETF application. Verrilli will serve as senior legal strategist. He is one of the nation's most experienced attorneys with a deep understanding of legal theory, administrative procedure, and the practical matters of working with the judiciary branch. Over the course of his career, he has argued more than 50 cases with the United States Supreme Court, including several that dealt directly with Administrative Procedure Act violations. Now, basically, what was going on is that Grayscale had filed for the ability to convert their trust into an ETF. This was their chosen way to resolve what was a huge problem at the time and what has continued to be a problem, which is the discount to net asset value that GBTC was trading at. What that means is that the value of GBTC shares was less than the value of the underlying Bitcoin held within them. That made holders of the shares underwater. And since so many people were effectively using GBTC as a proxy Bitcoin ETF, it meant that a lot of investors were simply stuck in this asset that they didn't want to be in anymore without a lot of recourse. Now, even back in June, it was clear that Grayscale was anticipating that their proposal to convert the trust into a Bitcoin ETF was going to be denied. Blockchain Association Chief Policy Officer Jake Trevinsky said as much, quote -tweeting that Grayscale tweet I just read and saying, Strong move. Grayscale means business. The SEC's deadline to approve or deny the application to convert GBTC to an ETF is July 6th. No doubt it should be approved. I don't see how the SEC survives a legal challenge if not, especially one led by Don Verrilli. Mark your calendar. Well, of course, July 6th came and went and the application was indeed denied. There were some at the time, even all the way back then, who were saying that the crypto industry needed to avail themselves of the legal system more. On March 9th, 2022, Johnny Deaton, the founder of Crypto Law US said, I've questioned why no one has sued over the denial of a Bitcoin spot ETF. Former SEC Commissioner Grunfest is dumbfounded by this as well. He said the denial is arbitrary and capricious, indefensible and the SEC would lose. Well, in October last year, Grayscale finally did exactly that and filed a lawsuit against the SEC. The lawsuit called the spot ETF rejection arbitrary, capricious and discriminatory. Now, at core to Grayscale's argument was the inconsistency of approving a Bitcoin futures ETF, or at this point, numerous Bitcoin futures ETFs, but not approving a Bitcoin spot ETF. The SEC had said its concerns were around market manipulation. But as Grayscale pointed out, the spot ETFs that had been approved and denied were using the same price feeds that fed the Bitcoin futures ETF. Presumably, if it comes to market manipulation, the issue is, of course, the price feeds themselves. And more specifically, the exchanges where the data of those prices comes from. How then could you approve a Bitcoin futures ETF that references the same price feed as a spot ETF and say that somehow there was more of a risk of market manipulation with the spot ETF, even though it was the same underlying price feed? Now, in March of this year, it seemed like Grayscale was getting some traction with those arguments. On March 7th, Coindesk published a piece, Judges expressed skepticism of SEC arguments in Grayscale Bitcoin ETF hearing. In what will be a relevant question as we see in a minute, Judge Naomi Rao asked, Now, at the time the market started to get the sense that given the judges questioning that day, the case might be moving towards a positive resolution for Grayscale and the crypto industry at large. Of course, the next thing that happened a few months later was the absolute flurry of Bitcoin ETFs. This was kicked off, most notably by BlackRock, who have been successful in 572 out of 573 ETF proposals that they've had or something like that, but included a huge number of other players who updated and refiled their applications, seeming to think that BlackRock knew something that everyone else didn't. One of the updates was that Coinbase would be specifically tasked with providing market surveillance for the proposed funds, and it appeared that those ETF issuers hoped that that surveillance sharing agreement would be sufficient for the SEC to finally reverse their decision and move on. Of course, a lot of discussion subsequent to these filings has been around the relationship between an anticipated win for Grayscale on the courts and the success of a future Bitcoin ETF filing. Well, this morning, as we said, Grayscale won. As Michael Schonenstein, the CEO of Grayscale, said, The D .C. Circuit ruled in favor of Grayscale in our lawsuit challenging the SEC's decision to deny GBTC's conversion to an ETF. The response from the industry was immediate. Rodrigo, who does legal and policy at Paradigm, writes, The great thing about the American political system is that it's designed to curtail administrative overreach. In the face of an intransigent SEC, the courts will ensure crypto has a future in the U .S. Brown -Rudnick partner Stephen Paley writes, The D .C. Circuit Court of Appeals holds that the SEC acted in an arbitrary and capricious way in denying Grayscale's proposed Bitcoin fund. This is a hard standard to meet. It's the court telling the SEC that it had no basis for the decision and just made it up. Now, looking at the decision specifically, Judge Rao wrote, It is a fundamental principle of administrative law that agencies must treat like cases alike. The Securities and Exchange Commission recently approved the trading of two Bitcoin futures funds on national exchanges, but denied approval of Grayscale's Bitcoin fund. Petitioning for review of the Commission's denial order, Grayscale maintains its proposed Bitcoin exchange -traded product, is materially similar to Bitcoin futures exchange -traded products, and should have been approved to trade on NYSE ARCA. We agree. The denial of Grayscale's proposal was arbitrary and capricious, because the Commission failed to explain its different treatment of similar products. We therefore grant Grayscale's petition and vacate the order. Now, one of the things that people noted is that the court kind of didn't pull any punches when it came to telling the SEC why they were wrong. As Nick Carter summed up, The D .C. Circuit Court just called the SEC utter casuals and told them to get good, adding skill -issued TBH. The relevant section of the decision, The Commission neither disputed Grayscale's evidence that the spot in futures markets for Bitcoin are 99 .9 % correlated, nor suggested that market inefficiencies or other factors would undermine the correlation. The Commission faults Grayscale for failing to provide other types of evidence. Without further explanation, however, the Commission's assertion that Information in the record for this filing does not support the claim that any fraud or manipulation in the underlying spot market will affect both products in the same way is unreasonable. And here's the real money shot. The Commission's unexplained discounting of the obvious financial and mathematical relationship between the spot and futures markets falls short of the standard for reasoned decision -making. From a previous court decision, it would be presumably arbitrary and capricious to ignore an obvious fact. So what does this not mean? And this is really important. This does not mean that Grayscale Bitcoin Trust will be automatically converting into an ETF. Now, I think most people in the crypto industry aren't getting this wrong, but a lot of people who are passively observing and a lot of people who are perhaps on the fringes in this industry and not paying tons of attention to it might be getting that information from headlines that are if not outright wrong at least a little bit vague. What this means is that Grayscale's petition needs to be reconsidered alongside the other ETFs once again and that the SEC's reasoning that they provided at least in this case would not stand. Now, what this also doesn't mean is that a Bitcoin ETF is guaranteed. The court ruled that in this particular case, the SEC's reasoning was arbitrary and capricious. Not that there is no way for an ETF to be sensibly denied by the SEC, just that the way they denied this one wasn't it. Jay Chervinsky once again did a good sum -up thread of this. He writes, Grayscale's victory over the SEC is massive. It's very rare for a federal circuit court to find that an agency has violated the APA by acting arbitrarily and capriciously. The DC Circuit just delivered a huge embarrassment for the SEC, but the ETF isn't approved yet. The DC Circuit Court soundly rejected the SEC's view that Grayscale's ETF proposal was not, designed to prevent fraudulent and manipulative acts and practices. The SEC has spent a full decade denying spot Bitcoin ETF proposals under this reasoning. That era has now come to an end. But the court didn't order the SEC to approve Grayscale's ETF proposal. It just said that the SEC's analysis on the fraud and manipulation issue was wrong. Now the SEC has to go back and review Grayscale's proposal again, with the court's ruling in mind. What will the SEC do? One theory is that the SEC will just pick a different reason to deny Grayscale's proposal and force more long and costly litigation. That's possible. It's hard to understate the extreme hostility of SEC leadership towards crypto. Will Sher Gensler really accept this loss? But another theory is that the SEC will take the DC Circuit's decision as a semi -graceful exit from their anti -ETF position. I'm in this camp. It's the right move. We disagree, but we're following the rule of law is a convenient excuse to back out of a losing battle. There will be political pressure on the SEC to approve spot Bitcoin ETFs. This isn't just about Grayscale. All of TradFi is ready for a Bitcoin ETF. Many other issuers have proposed ETFs this year, including BlackRock, and Larry Fink throws heavy punches in DC. Sher Gensler can also spin up a face -saving narrative out of a spot Bitcoin ETF approval. The SEC has been getting blasted for its regulation by enforcement approach to crypto. Here's a chance to say, look, we aren't anti -crypto. We're willing to approve the right products. I have no doubt that we'll get a spot Bitcoin ETF sooner or later. The only question is if the SEC wants to make it more painful for itself. Trust me, if there's another denial, there will be another lawsuit. I strongly recommend the SEC picks sooner. So that we will call the Sophisticated Nuance Complex Correct Analysis. But for the sake of completeness, we also have to look over at Scoopy, who tweets the mid -twit meme with the agonized crying guy in the middle of the bell curve saying, it's not a victory. It's only a middle step in getting the SEC to review their ETF application. And the genius on the moron on either side of the bell curve saying, Grayscale won, send it. And send it the markets did. Bitcoin jumped about $1 ,000 or 3 .8 % in the moments after the announcement. At the time of recording, Bitcoin was actually up about 5 % and GBTC was up even more, up about 17%. What's more, as Rich Rosenblum from GSR points out, while this Grayscale news may have been the catalyst, Chartists would argue the Bitcoin pop was overdue as fresh shorts got exhausted at the bottom of the recent range and capitulated. Now, when it comes to what's next, there are still a lot of people who are GBTC holders, who are in a semi -battle with Grayscale, trying to force them to redeem. David Bailey, the CEO of Bitcoin Magazine writes, Our number one goal with Redeemed GBTC is to reduce the discount to NAV and bring relief for investors. Today's decision is an initial victory for shareholders, but we will not stop our efforts until the discount is eliminated. We now need next steps and a firm timeline from Grayscale. Ryan Selkis from Masari echoes this but puts it in more political terms. He writes, Never forget, the U .S. courts protected retail investors while the SEC held them hostage and hurt them to the tune of billions of dollars. The SEC is an illegitimate institution with a corrupt leader. It took the courts to rule that the SEC stick to its mission and rules. Selkis also tweeted, Now is a perfect time to remind the president that his absolute chump of an SEC chair, Gary Gensler, is losing him votes and embarrassing him in court. Corrupt, inept and embarrassing is no way to run a financial regulator. Now, lest you think this is just tough talk from someone on Twitter, Selkis and many others in the crypto industry are determined to make crypto a losing political issue for people on the other side in this coming election cycle. And while the industry may be down right now, there is still a lot of capital and appetite to bring that fight to the elected politicians. Caitlin Long writes, Still shocked at how Biden administration's hatred of anything crypto drove it to poor judgment, now boomeranging back on it in courts. Better to have worked with law -abiding players. This was their choice. Courts curbing federal agencies' power impacts far more than crypto. I think what's clear is that opposing the Bitcoin spot ETF at this point is just a losing issue. Even Cass Piazzi, who is a co -host of the Crypto Critics Pod, which admittedly I think is one of the more good faith and thoughtful critiques of the industry, tweets, Skeptics and critics are not going to like me saying this, but I believe the Grayscale ETF will be approved. I also see no real issue with the spot Bitcoin ETF. But at the end of the day, when it comes to what to feel right now and what the industry is feeling, Anthony Zassano nails it when he writes the ETF promised land awaits us friends. Just try not to blow yourselves up doing something stupid before the party really gets going next year. And maybe the best summary comes from Will Clemente, who writes, This is one of the biggest days for Bitcoin in its history. We are so effing back. That is going to do it for today's breakdown. Until tomorrow, be safe and save some change for the Bitcoin ETF. Peace.
Charlie Welcomes Leigh Wambsganss of Patriot Mobile
"Joining us now is Lee wham's gones. I hope I said that right. Lee, welcome to the program. Very close. As my husband's fault, mom's gone. Thanks, Charlie. Good to be here. You're the executive director of patriot mobile action. Tell us about the great work you're doing on the ground. So Peter mobile action was formed by four executives actually who are at patriot mobile. We did this last year and it was our first launch year in 2022. And we took on four independent school districts in tarrant county, Texas. As you know, Taylor county is the largest red county left in the nation and in the bullseye of the turn Texas blue. So we took on four school districts. It was 11 seats. We won all 11. They weren't slam ducks. One of them went into a runoff. We had to work very hard, but ultimately what that means is over a 100,000 north Texas students who before May 2022 had liberal leadership on their school boards. After May 2022, had conservative majorities on their school boards.

Thanks so much, Louise. We're going to be able to talk a bit more about that Rick survey of home prices. I think it's interesting energy efficient homes are still holding onto their values. A handful of those exists, frankly, Tom across the UK, the issues that Britain's homes are not energy efficient. The housing market continues to decline.

On the latest edition of the balance of power podcast Republican congressman Andy ogles on negotiating the death ceiling. We really don't have a choice. I mean, you know, we're in a place in the period. We're in a recessionary period and make no mistake. That was because of the government and the overspending, the trillions of dollars that have been pumped into the economy. As we move forward, we know that spending is unsustainable. And what this administration is wanting is a blank check. They want to credit card with no limit. The limit is there for a reason. And we've got to work together to start cutting this White House is going to try to drag it out, but they're doing so with the future of the American people. Isn't the definition of the debt limit a limit? Isn't that the point that we'd be establishing a new limit? Well, again, the idea of accountability is lost on the administration. Again, it just adds to the inflationary pressures. It prolongs what will be a recession. And so we know we've got to cut. And look, you know, you're going to hear reports that the sky is falling, that what are we going to do that the global market is going to crumble if we don't raise the debt ceiling. That's not true. The United States is the economic engine that drives the global economy. Our currency is the global standard. The world is going to react to it. We've got to do to get our fiscal House in order. And that's what we have to do is get our fiscal House in order. What we've seen historically is year after year, we're running the government on continuing resolutions on omnibus bills, right? Instead of having a 7 ten, 15 year budget that normalizes spending over a period of time. And so one of the things that we fought for, the rules package. Okay, fine, if we need to do a CR, continuing resolution. But there's an automatic 2% cut to go along with it. And if you do it again, there's another cut. So what it does it now incentivizes Congress to do its job, which is to put forth a budget to the American people that the American people can see and we haven't been
