Shout out to everyone today in the live chat. Make sure to let me know where you're tuning in from. Of course at the end of the show I'll be reading everyone's comments out loud as this is a live and interactive show. Seven days a week and the after party FYI will be on rumble. So let's get it. Let's kick off today's show with our market watch as we do each and every day shall we. As you can see here on coin 360 we got Bitcoin up roughly 3 % for the day trading at roughly that 28 ,000 mark just under it. We have Ether consolidating trading under $1 ,700 while BNB, Cardano and Solana are all in the green and checking out coinmarketcap .com. We're finally climbing again at a market cap of 1 .09 trillion. We've been stuck around this 1 trillion level for quite some time. We got roughly 46 billion in volume in the past 24 hours meaning volume is up roughly 60 % and Bitcoin dominance is massively on the climb. I think the bull market is in full gear 49 .6 % for BTC with the ETH dominance at 18 .3 % and checking out the top 100 crypto gainers in the past 24 hours Satoshi vision leading the pack up 23 % trading at $39 .37 followed by e cash up roughly 9 % followed by Bitcoin cash. Now it's interesting that the Bitcoin forks are the top gainers for the day. I think anything associated with the name Bitcoin is pumping. It is what it is and checking out the top 100 crypto gainers of the past week Satoshi vision lead in the pack here up 23 and a half percent alongside our LB up roughly 12 % and XCC up roughly 9 % and checking out the crypto greed and fear index we're dead in the middle 50 which is neutral yesterday was a 48 last week a 47 and last month a 39 in fear. So there you have it fam how many of you are currently bullish on the king crypto now that we in October let me know and make some noise and put God candle and maybe the Satoshi and God's watching above will send it let's freaking go and with that being shared fam now let's dive into today's Bitcoin technical analysis and check out some of the charts and what's popping with the king crypto where Bitcoin is likely to go next Bitcoin aim for 25 at the October 2nd Wall Street open at a bullish start as the month continued which you can see here in the Bitcoin one -day candle chart data from Cointelegraph and trading view showed Bitcoin price action staying strong into October's first US trading session Bitcoin made swift gains into the weekly close following a contrastingly cool monthly candle completion that saw Bitcoin finish at 26 ,000 970 now popular analyst right capital says this monthly close despite now being more than 5 % below the spot price called for caution quoting him here Bitcoin performed a September monthly candle close below twenty seven thousand one hundred and he also said technically that black line was solidified as resistance for September so he acknowledged the October breakout but said this would invalidate the bearish predicament should it endure now he also says because the Bitcoin monthly closed below the black line there's always going to be a chance that this price action could end up as an upside wick as he shares here alongside this chart Bitcoin offered upside wicks of up to 8 % long before but right now Bitcoin is up four and a half percent this month so technically anything up to twenty nine thousand four hundred could theoretically end as an upside wick so there you have it let me know if you agree disagree with the analysts say goodbye to your credit card rewards big box retailers led by Walmart and Target are pushing for a bill in Congress to take away your hard -earned cash back and travel points to line their pockets Senate bill 1838 would enact harmful credit card routing mandates that would end credit card rewards as we know it if you love your credit card rewards visit handsoffmyrewards .com and tell them to oppose credit card routing legislation paid for by the electronic payments coalition now closer to home market observers noted the ongoing encouraging signals on the exchange order books quoting jelly here spot bid continues while funding is negative this reeks of disbelief and as he shared here Bitcoin still spot -driven perhaps haven't done much yet to be honest yeah so Bitcoin shrugs off fresh US dollar surge just as eager to hit new local highs in the day was the US dollar after Congress avoided a government shutdown the US dollar stays the sharp rebound from losses seen late last week and at this time the DXY circled 106 .7 barely point two points off its recent 2023 highs and for crypto analyst Nebraskan Gooner a breakout from here would put 108 in play mark in new 11 -month highs as outlined right here now it's interesting the Bitcoin is pumping alongside with the dollar is usually it's inversely correlated maybe it's a sign of the times now together with the hype on yields and the oil prices economist Mohammed el -irian described the DXY strength as neither the US economy nor the markets enjoy Bitcoin nonetheless remain unfazed let's freaking go and as Kaiser points out here well he responded to this news the Japanese 10 -year bond yields are surging hitting the highest levels not seen in over a decade max responded the yen carry trade borrowing and at virtually zero and investing in higher yield currencies is broken this has been the mother of all the Ponzi schemes funding the global financial ization for 30 years and now it's moving in reverse and quitting max again Bitcoin is a state of heaven that exists entirely beyond anyone's reach except the owner preach that's why everyone needs to be stacking them sass and with that being shared fam now let's break down our next breaking story of the day a theorem ETF futures launch today October 2nd that's right check it out investment management firm Vanek is set to launch as a theorem strategy ETF today October 2nd with the product now listed on the website under the ticker EF UT and set for trading on the CBOE the Vanek a theorem strategy ETF will look to accrue capital by investing into a theorem futures contracts and has no direct exposure to eat the fund will expose cash settled eat futures contracts on CFTC regulated commodity exchanges Vanek also touts the benefits of the product being a C Corp structure which includes tax benefits the long investors compared with registered investment company structures here's the announcement here on X from Vanek when you are ready enter the ether how many of you have seen this commercial let me know in fact they launched two of them they're quite fascinating the investment manner has been advertising the launch of the East spot ETF on its social media accounts over the past few days with to enter the ETH themed TV commercials promising the upcoming launch now Vanek also announced that intends to donate 10 % of all their profits from its upcoming ether futures ETF to a theorem core developers over the next decade and as reported 15 different ether futures ETFs from nine issuers are currently awaiting approval from the US SEC and I guess they have until the end of September of 2023 analysts cited sources with the SEC of saying the regulator wanted to approve either future ETFs before potential US government shutdown but meanwhile bitwise asset management confirmed that trading for its to ether if futures ETFs would commence October 2nd as well with investors getting access to eat futures trading on the CB OE so there you have it we all know that futures are not in investors best interest in fact investors are most likely going to get wrecked we want the real deal baby which is the spot ETF and a little later in the show we're gonna be discussing grayscale converting their product to not only a Bitcoin spot ETF but also a spot a theorem ETF here in just a little bit but first we have some breaking news coming in surrounding FTX founder Sam Bankman freed I mean you can't make this stuff up he allegedly was trying to bribe Donald Trump with five billion dollars to not run for president good freaking Lord check this out how many of you seen this story let me know former FTX CEO SPF once looked into paying Donald Trump not to run for president of the United States according to Michael Lewis the author of the new book documented the rise and fall of SPF Michael Lewis author of going infinite the rise and the fall of a new tycoon spoke about the former crypto billionaire and the FTX founder in a 60 minutes interview yesterday October 1st one of the revelations in the book is that SPF looked into paying Donald Trump to not run for president that only shocks you if you don't know Sam as Lewis added the following Sam's thinking that we could pay Donald Trump not to run for president like how much would it take the number that he was kicking around was five billion dollars and he added before saying that SPF was unsure if that number came directly from Donald Trump and here's your prescription I know just the pharmacy to get this filled who are you a pharmacy benefit manager a middleman your insurer uses to decide which medicines you can get what you pay and sometimes even which pharmacy you should go to why can't I go to a pharmacy in my neighborhood because I make more money when you go to a pharmacy I own no one should stand between you and your medicine visit ph RMA org slash middlemen to learn more paid for by pharma SPF was also looking into the legality of it according to Lewis who added that they were still having these conversations when FTX blew up it just didn't happen because SPF didn't have the five billion any longer very interesting if you haven't watched the video check the show notes below the video in the description and after the show you can catch it out this clip taken from 60 minutes now according to Lewis SPF saw Trump as trying to undermine the democracy of the United States thinking he belongs on a list of existential risk crazy Lewis spent more than 70 days in the Bahamas on a dozen different trips to visit SPF in 2022 and the pair became close I would say in spare bedrooms I had codes to every room including the penthouse he told the Wall Street Journal and speaking on the fallout between the collapse of FTX in November he shared it was like the aftermath of Pompeii clothes and belongings left behind frozen in time many headed to the airport leaving company cars with the keys inside at the curb now Cointelegraph contacted legal representatives for SPF and Trump mark botnik who handles communications for SPF case said there was no comment from his legal team and according to the trial schedule calendar released last week the high -profile SPF trial begins October 3rd which is tomorrow less than 24 hours out with their jury selection the trial then begins on October 4th so it's going to be an interesting week the trial will involve seven fraud cases against SPF two substantive charges where the prosecution most convinced the jury that Bankman freed committed the crime and five other conspiracy charges so there you have it I wouldn't put it past Bankman freed whatsoever he was supporting the Democratic Party making mass donations to the Dems in support of Biden and heavily against Trump so I mean good lord could you say fraud I mean I could see Trump saying hey give me you want to give me five billion and not run for president sure let's make it happen but fortunately enough Sam Bankman freed didn't get away with that particular crime that we are aware of as he lost the company and the company went kaboom thanks to CZ calling him out firsthand on his FTT scam tokens but anyways fam let me know if that's surprising or shocking to you or you're not surprised at all now let's discuss the etherium spot ETF which is way more significant than any futures ETFs will ever be let's break this one down following the approval of the first ether futures exchange traded fund grayscale investments is looking to convert its grayscale aetherium trust to a spot aetherium ETF kudos to them because they're doing the same thing with their Bitcoin product as well they want to spot Bitcoin ETF the new New York Stock Exchange arca filed the conversion with the United States SEC October 2nd today grayscale's existing trust invested in ether futures contracts as an indirect means of exposure to aetherium but a spot ETF will invest in the underlying asset itself that's what makes it that much greater it's not derivatives or paper it's the real deal they have to hold the underlying asset as Michael Sun and shine shared here grayscale has filed to convert their grayscale aetherium trust to a spot ETF thank you for your continued support we can't wait to get started yeah so he also says as we file to convert the ethe to an ETF the natural next step in the products evolution we recognize this as an important moment to bring aetherium even further into the u .s.

slash cyber careers years that's r t x dot com slash cyber careers everything you need every time you it's ten forty five and i'm demetri sodas thank you for being with us tonight speaker kevin mccarthy officially on the hot seat he actually has been on the hot seat since january but let's just say that seat is is extra hot now with florida republican matt gates filing a resolution tonight to remove mccarthy a maker it sets up a likely showdown vote in the house in the coming days and something we've never seen before in u s history cnn capitol hill reporter annie grayer joined us earlier with more on what happened in the house today the speaker himself has said that he thinks that this is a personal matter between him and congressman gates but for gates gates says that this is about kevin mccarthy not keeping his word back january in when he was first elected speaker there are a number of issues that gates has taken issue with but you know i was standing right outside the house floor when gates filed this motion i can tell you you you could hear a pin drop in the house floor when this was happening republicans had a feeling this was coming gates been had telegraphing this was coming but this sets up a real showdown and the clock is ticking because the way the house rules work there has to be a vote on this within two days so i much just can't emphasize kind enough how of behind the scenes planning and scheming is going on as members try and what to do here now we did see on x formerly known as twitter that kevin mccarthy wrote bring it on maybe we would expect that public bravado behind the scenes does he have anything to be worried about here that still remains to be seen i mean one thing's for sure is gates is not the only one who is going to sign on to this motion to ask mccarthy there's a handful of others and the origin is so small in the house right now between democrats and republicans if mccarthy loses four republicans on this vote he's going to need democrats to help him stay in his job now that is an unlikely matchup and democrats find themselves in this kind of kingmaker position because they have the power to either save mccarthy and keep him as speaker or help rebels like matt gates try and oust him so there's a lot of conversations going on in the democratic caucus right now about what kind of deals and negotiations could they extract from mccarthy to try and make voting for mccarthy worthwhile versus a loud chorus of democrats who think that mccarthy cannot be trusted for a number of reasons and there's no way that they would ever vote for kevin mccarthy so there's a split in the democratic caucus about what to do and on kevin mccarthy and that's going to directly impact kevin we know what drama at any workplace can do if there's some trouble going on off on in the corner nobody can really focus on their work is it the same way there at the house of representatives oh and that's the kind of the first thing that members say to me when when this happened we were so close to a shutdown government on saturday and congress barely averted it and we've got an extension for for 45 25 more days members want to be using this time to try and come up with a more longer term solution so when that deadline comes up that they're not faced with the same predicament but voting on a motion to to vacate that now gates is forcing the house to vote on takes up members time and honestly you know it's not that different than in high school when you know there's a big drama going on that's all people can think or talk about CNN Capitol Hill reporter Annie Greer tonight.

A highlight from New England's Historic Loss & CJ Stroud Breaks Out
"Hello and welcome to the MMQB NFL podcast. I'm Conroe. That's my dog Ernie upstairs barking at the FedEx guy. Albert Breer's here and I'm going to start in New York because Albert I can't believe that we're still doing this Taylor Swift thing. And now the NFL is doing the Taylor Swift thing. Do you see that they are their subhead on their Twitter pages. The Chiefs are now 2 -0 as Swifties. I did not see that but I am more and more. It's fake. I think so too. I think on Friday like the radio show I did in Boston. They leave me at the like and these guys are really creative and they kind of like took me through their full like tinfoil hat like conspiracy theory. You know like you know what this actually really makes sense. Like because the NFL has forever chased the female demographic and they've struggled to get it. And they know that there's nothing more buzz worthy on that side of the aisle than Taylor Swift. And they were shameless enough to cut like I mean we've seen some of their shameless acts over the years to try and get the female audience. And this wouldn't even rank in like the top 10. You know what I mean like this would just be sort of par for the course that they would do something like this. So I really like I am officially on this Monday morning Connor especially after the 10 million shots that box last night. I'm all the way there. This is all fake. This is all like this is all contrived. This is it. Everyone wins situation. Taylor gets to promote her movie. What else is it? There's one other thing right is a new album coming out. I can't keep track of all of this. I have no idea. OK. So Taylor gets to promote that stuff with a different demographic. Right. Like football different demographics different than hers. The NFL gets to try to take a swing at the female audience. And then Travis Kelsey gets an enormous benefit from this. Travis Kelsey's following has exploded. Nine hundred thousand new followers. This is like an everyone wins situation. And it's all fake. A 14 point 14 whatever place jump in Jersey sales. Like we were taught in school to follow the money and it's right out in front of us. Like it's like you know we're not even it's not even like they're hiding it. And I think I'm only read some of this stuff sometimes, though, and like like over the last week, like actually clicking on some like people dot com links, you know, I've seen some stories she reads. And I always think that the page six type stuff, you know, and I always think it's funny when there's like an insider into somebody's relationship, like who would be the insider into your relationship? Connor, I, you know, when they when they when they when they put sources into your relation and then people's relationships. Yeah, the sources be I mean, it would be like my neighbor or like my mom or my wife's mom. It would be like, yeah, I think I think they're fighting, you know. Yeah. Yeah. I don't have a publicist. I always think that's great. Like is the sources into the like the insiders into the relationship? Like is that person like just coming over and hanging out on a Tuesday or something and that makes them an insider? So Brian Costello, who's awesome, Jets beat writer for the New York Post, and he tweeted the the bio for the NFL's Twitter page, which is the Chiefs two and O's Swifties. And he's totally right. This is the kind of stuff that fuels nutjob conspiracy theorists, not just the ones with the podcast. But the fans who watched that game last night and saw their saw the outcome derailed by an extraordinarily questionable call on Sauce Gardner. And listen, I'm not saying it's good, bad, right, wrong or indifferent. But if you're a Jets fan and you've already seen your entire season railroaded by the NFL's greed and desire to milk whatever they can out of this franchise and you had to do hard knocks. Every single game is on prime time. Your schedule is ridiculous, ridiculously front loaded and impossible at the beginning. You know, I don't know what else you could think right now other than your team is just being actively manipulated by by the league. And listen, I don't believe it. You know, Andy Benoit and I used to fight about the I used to get him going on the NFL's fake thing a while back. We had a lively discussion about that after Peyton Manning's second Super Bowl. But I don't believe it. I'm not one of those people. Well, you're not making them go away. I just noticed I just went to the NFL's Twitter page. It is now the header is three shots of tail left. And like if you look at the bio, I think this is a tailor. I think this is a tailor reference. We had the best day with you today. Maybe is that a reference? I think it has to be right to be clear. I'm not anti Taylor Swift. I think she's a fine musician. Yeah, I think she's a genius. Like, yeah, I think she's a legitimate genius and everything she touches turns to gold. And there's a reason for it. She's obviously incredible. Yeah, I just don't like I want you know what? I think I'm hot, too, because I'm coming off the I wrote about the way those are the lyrics to it. Those are those are lyrics from a Taylor Swift song titled The Best Day. Okay, I think I'm just a little hot coming off the Toy Story broadcast, too. Did you did you catch any of that? I was actually coaching third grade football during the Toy Story. Okay, good. Yeah, I threw that on and I was just like, what are they doing? And I get it. You're trying to get kids to watch football. But how about just allowing kids to watch football or to have kids play football and not to watch like a I mean, the technology was incredible. But it like it looked like a like a like Minecraft, you know, and like I just felt like I watch it with my son for a minute. And I was like, they're trying to just it's like cocoa melon. They're just trying to hypnotize them. So we we bang that thing fast. I mean, I just feel like that's like there are some people at the league office who don't have enough to do. And that's how things like that wind up coming to life. Like like fix, fix the problems. Like we're focused on Taylor Swift and the Toy Story broadcast, like like digital chains so that like chains don't break during the game. Grass fields like like like fix the actual problems with the games. My God. Anyway, twenty three twenty, the Chiefs beat the Jets. The Jets fall to one in three. The Chiefs are three and one. I think my takeaway from this game is the takeaway that everybody had, which was this was a feisty, very feisty Zach Wilson game. I think that Robert Sala, to me, win or lose, just earns so much credit because during the week he knew he was going to get demolished. And he said, you don't throw people away. You just don't throw people away. And I give him so much credit because honestly, this is job on the line stuff. And he stuck with Zach Wilson. He dug in. There was no sample size. And Zach played really well. I was very happy for them. And look, like I think that the biggest problem that Robert Sala had was like, can he continue to sell Zach Wilson to the locker room? Because the premise of that entire team, the construction of that team this year was we're going for it. Right. So there are guys in that locker room like Allen Lazard and Adrian Amos and Randall Cobb, guys that were like that are older vets that are there to chase the ring. And like guys like that aren't going to have patience. They don't care what this means for your franchise in 2025. They care about right now. And the younger guys in the roster are going to be worried about what's going to get them in a position to get paid. So it can be hard to sell a developing quarterback to a locker room. And I'll give Robert Sala credit for standing by Zach Wilson, because if he didn't do that, like it would have been impossible. It would have been impossible for Zach in that locker room. you And, know, it sort of made me think of something I said earlier in the day about how Josh Dobbs should get us to question everything about how we develop quarterbacks, how the NFL develops quarterbacks, how the NFL nurtures quarterbacks. Because, you know, you have this guy in Josh Dobbs who got what, six years to kind of learn away from the bright lights. And then because he was on different teams, because he had different experiences, because he was developed away from game action, because people invested in him, because he had a chance and people had patience with him. And, you know, every single movement of his wasn't, you know, litigated on a public level on a week to week basis. You know, he had a chance to kind of get better in the background. And now you have a guy who's so adaptable that he could be traded a week before the season and start and take maybe the worst roster in the league and have a competitive over the first month of the season. It really like to me, like looking at Josh Dobbs makes you question everything. And so if six years can do that for Josh Dobbs, why are we throwing guys out after two or three years? That's what I don't get about it. It's fair to make an assessment on a guy and say, like, he sucks now. But to say guys never going to be good, just ignore so much history. You know, like Alex Smith is a phenomenal example of it. Right. Like how many times was he given up on in San Francisco? Yeah. Like, oh, he can't play. But no one was looking at the fact that like he had five coordinators his first five years in the league. He had two head coaches. Everything was completely unstable around him. And then Jim Harbaugh gets there in 2011 says, no, I'm sticking with him. And he takes off and then he's in the league for another decade as a starter. You know, like it's just we have so many examples of the of why we shouldn't make definitive and declarative statements about young quarterbacks. And yet we do it over and over and over again. And like I do, I think like the intention of the Jets in the first place was we have to press the pause button with Zach Wilson. We may have wronged him by playing him too fast. Right. And by putting too much on him too early. And so the whole intention on bringing him back this year was to allow him the chance to do the Josh jobs and develop in the background for a year or two. And that got blown up. But just because that plan got blown up like that's not Zach Wilson's fault. That plan got blown up. It's not anybody's fault. So now you're going to just completely throw the kid out. Why? Because Aaron Rodgers got hurt. There's a lot of like really faulty logic that goes into the way that he's been talked about over the last couple of weeks, I think. I agree. I'm not just saying this because I wrote about it, but to not even, you know, I think we're in such a easy Twitter dunk society that when Zach Wilson and Nathaniel Hackett get paired up, everyone's just like, oh, this is going to be terrible. And without looking at any of the history of any of these guys. The AFC championship came with Blake, Blake Bortles. He got Ryan Nassib drafted out of Syracuse. I went to Syracuse. Do you know who was the quarter? The last quarterback drafted before Ryan Nassib, Donovan McNabb, Donovan McNabb. I was going to say I was going to say Troy Nunes. Like I think drafted as a quarterback. I think there was a couple of quarterbacks that turned into tight ends, but in literally broke all the school records with this guy. And then he got Kyle Wharton, I believe, to the doorstep of the playoffs. Yeah. Two MVPs with Aaron Rodgers after he was lost in the woods for a little while. The guy's good at what he does, you know, and we're seeing in Denver now, who knows? Make your own judgments about what happened there. But I think that this thing could work like, OK, yeah. The Jets are one in three, but their schedule softens up a little bit. They played a lot of their best defenses up front. You know, Zach Wilson is going to look bad against the Cowboys, but how many other people are going to look really bad against the Cowboys? Right. And now in the next few games, like they have the Broncos coming up. I mean, Zach Wilson could could legitimately put up 50 points against that team. The Eagles, who are really good defense giants, Jets, Giants before Halloween, which if he can handle the pressure. I think that's coming off a buy, too. So it's coming off a buy. You know what Wink Martindale is going to do. He does it well, but you know what he's going to do. And then the Chargers November six, the Raiders November 12th. You don't play a really good team. You play the Eagles in the bills in the next month and a half. Otherwise, you're good. Well, we're kind of like that's like and that was the whole logic behind this. And I think we talked about this last week. To me, the problem with going away from Zach Wilson, like in the whole in the first place, was a there's no better option out there right now. Right. And B, once you go away from him, you can't go back again. You know, so I think so. I think so. I knew that like it was if we bench him in consecutive years, we can't sell him to the locker room again.

A highlight from Part 2: Zach Wilsons Alive, Belichicks in Trouble, Buffalos Cruising, and Week 5 Lines With Cousin Sal
"All right. So we're taping part one here. It is a little past 4 o 'clock Pacific time. Just watch the Pats completely shit the bed. We're not going to talk about that. That'll be part two. Part one. Ryan Russilla was here. We're talking Drew Holiday. The big trade. How is the NBA different for you right now, and are we done? Do we finally have the 30 rosters? Is this what we're looking at? Do we know who's going to be on everybody's team, or are we somehow not done? I never think we're done anymore in the NBA, and I know you're being a gracious host here, but you and I talked for five minutes today. I think you have the headline take on this, okay? I think you have the headline take on what the top of the league looks like. Are you ready to share it this early? I think Boston has the best top six. I did not feel that way 24 hours ago. I did not feel like there was a clear best. I trust this team in crunch time, and if Porzingis stays healthy, which is a huge if, I think they have the best six, and they can fill around, and they have the most ways that they can play whoever in the series. So from that vantage point, you had to do the trade. And they gave up a center who has been hurt every single year, and I don't fully trust that he's ever going to be out there when it matters. Brogdon, who was hurt, who was mad at the team, and two picks. And you get Drew Holliday, who was a 2021 Finals hero, who's one of the best defensive guards in the league, who's still really good, and just raises their ceiling. Now you can go white Holliday, Tatum Brown, and a center at crunch time, and you're good. You can switch on almost everything, especially if you get anything from Horford. So were you similarly enthused? Yeah, I love Drew. There's some stuff with his shooting in the playoffs where it's been pretty bad, or you're like, is that just because you can't make shots at the playoffs, or is it just what happened statistically? I mean, it does happen. I mean, if I'm getting the negative parts out of the way, like, yeah, sure, he's a little bit older. The big situation is a huge question mark. I can't believe what they got from Horford last year. So I don't know if you can just pencil that in, because he was way beyond expectations, at least for me, or for what I had for him. But when you can add Drew for those pieces, and I'm with you, when Rob Williams is right, it's really, really nice. But you can even tell when he's out there, you're like, is something wrong with him again? The number of times that I've watched Rob Williams in Celtics games, I'm like, I know he's out there, but wait, something. And every time, I thought Marcus Smart was trying to end his career with some of those Valley U passes, depending on how he lands, like, wait, is this going to be the last one we ever see from him? So to me, it makes a lot of sense. By the way, on that Rob point, my dad texted me after the trade, he's like, oh, I hate giving up Rob. I'm like, you complained about Rob more than anybody I know in my life. You would text me from the games going, oh, Rob's just off in the, Rob just walked in the tunnel again. I don't know what happened. I like just Brian Barrett had a tweet, 32 games, 29 games, 52 games, 61 games, 35 games. Those are Rob Williams' last five years. It just wasn't reliable enough for a team that's trying to win a title. I interrupted you. No, you didn't, because it's a it's a really good point, because what's going to happen? I mean, you know, it's just there's there's definitely like if Prozingis is hurt, it feels like the whole thing is screwed up and there's a really good chance that that could happen. But if you're talking about like the allocation of minutes and the talent that's getting those minutes, well, the talent that's getting those minutes just went up with Drew Holiday. And that's, I think, the simplest way to look at it. So they they turn Marcus Smart and Grant Williams and Brogdon and Rob Williams into Drew Holiday and Prozingis, more Derek White minutes, more Peyton Pritchard minutes. And then there's a little bit of an X factor with who's going to be like that ninth man, tenth man, kind of big four slash five person, maybe, or somebody you trade like that. I feel like that's the easiest position to pick up in January and February. The big thing for me is I think White was ready for a bigger role. I think White and Holiday together is magnificent as a as a backcourt. And I read some stuff today. They think White's going to come off the bench. I don't know if I see that. I think I would come out of the gates with White and Holiday and Tatum and Brown in the center and maybe bring to your Horford point, like maybe bring Horford off the bench and try to really try to rest his minutes during the season and be careful with him and make him a bench player. And then the playoffs reassess. But I think that having those four guys all together, they complement each other so well. You can play basically any kind of defense against any perimeter guy in the league. Those four guys and they're just better. I mean, there's there's just no way around it. They're better. He's a much better player than Marcus Smart was last year. And you know, you made that point about the shooting. He'd have those games. He'd go 5 for 22 in a playoff game. You know, he'd eat. But I do feel like he was asked to do a little bit more than maybe what he's supposed to be doing. I don't feel like he's a pure point guard. Right. Now you have White who can handle most of the ball handling. He could play off the ball and they're going to get the best version of him. Awesome locker room guy, too, by all accounts. I mean, really like a beloved teammate wherever he went. And I think they wanted to change the chemistry a little bit. I think this was an unhappier team than maybe they led on to the outside world last year. Yeah. Look, I definitely like him more than Smart. And you know, to be totally fair, when I'm looking at like the Lillard side of this trade last week before we knew the second piece of Drew and upgrading from Drew to Lillard, I'm going, OK, well, now you're top two in Milwaukee's like in the argument for the best two in the NBA. OK, that's that's really what this league has been about now post the teens decade where it was the arms race for your top three. It's you look around the league, you go, OK, who's got the two best? Like, let's come up with the five teams who have the two best. And with Lillard and Giannis, that's like a whole nother level. So when I was looking at it, it's like Lillard compared to Drew, you know, Drew is not somebody you're expecting to break down a defense off the dribble. Right. Oh, we're stuck into the shot clock, like make something happen where Lillard can literally do anything right in the final second of the shot clock and still you feel like it's still a decent look. So that part of it's a huge upgrade. But he's number three to four as far as an offensive option. He also and I don't know, this is just me talking out loud as I thought about the trade. It's pretty clear that when Boston's offense gets into trouble in the playoffs, like Tatum and Brown haven't figured out a way to kind of unlock it other than just like I can already picture my head like I know what the Tatum move is going to be. I already know what the Jaylen Brown move is going to be. And I don't know if Smart was able to make their life easier with the playmaking. And then sometimes I even think Smart would go like, well, if you guys are going to screw around, like I might just I might just be green light on this possession. I don't think Drew necessarily plays that way. So, you know, it's probably silly for me to think that like Drew is going to be the Steve Nash type who comes in and sets up all these great late playoff possessions. But there may be something in lessening the burden of those guys feeling that they have to do or defaulting to just forcing the issue as much as they do in the playoffs. I like how much ball handling they have, to your point, because they were talking about experimenting a little bit more with Tatum as a point forward this year, which makes me nervous a little bit just because, you know, he's six foot nine. I'm not sure that's the best use of him, but they seem pretty adamant. Like we feel like he could be a little bit more of a creator. And then you think White can do that. To me, White is the key to this season now, because if, you know, other than the Porzingis health thing, which I almost I'm going to knock on wood, but part of the reason they made all this movement and they got rid of Brogdon and Smart was I think they really wanted to push White to be the lead ball handler for them and a creator. And there's some unbelievable pick and roll stats with him. And just if certain people set him a pick in the way, even in the Miami series, he was one of the only guys who could create offense. So I think they have that plus they have Drew. And the reality is for Drew, this is this might be the deepest offensive team he's been on. Right. When you think back to like it was on some pretty weird Philly teams and some pretty weird New Orleans teams, and even when Milwaukee was at its best, it was really just Giannis, Middleton and Drew. And that was it. This is there's more shooting and playmaking around him than I think we've seen. Maybe it'll be a slight upgrade on the flip side. He doesn't have Giannis, who was the second best player of the century, probably, but I like the spot for him. It seemed like he really wanted to go to a contending team and I don't really know who they were competing against because for reading through some of the reports, it just seemed like Philly. I don't even know what the trade was for them. Portland wanted at least one piece back, probably two that they could do their keeper package. They wanted picks back. Golden State wasn't even in it. And it didn't seem like OKC ever threw their hat in the ring, which I was shocked by because I felt like OKC was the sleeping giant of this whole thing with Dort and some picks and just say, fuck it, let's let's see if we can be really good this year. So it seemed like it was down to Boston. The Clippers, they just had more assets. I don't know if Portland keeps Rob. He's on a good contract. They already have Ayton. My guess is that they're probably spinning him. Does it make sense that both of those guys? My sense is they're going to try it out, you know, but, you know, the thing with Rob is like, if you think he's an awesome defensive player that's just out there, like he's awesome when he's used a certain way. And once Boston unlocked that two years ago, where they stuck him on a non shooting big and then you could see other teams adapt to it, it's like, well, let's stop giving them an out where Rob can just roam off of this dude that's not a shooting threat, because I think that, you know, this is just going to turn into like now that he's not here. But I mean, have you listened to us talk about Rob Williams at all last couple of years? He you know, I don't I don't think he's I know what the defensive metrics are. I know the on off stuff. It's a big reason why I think the analytics models always love Boston. Like sometimes you look at him and be like, hey, I think this team's good, but like these numbers are overwhelming. This is like, yeah, it's it's so far like as if there's this huge gap between Boston and everybody else, which I never really felt going back these last two years. But you're if Chauncey Billups and you think like, OK, Rob Williams is going to go out there and like wreak havoc, it's like, well, he has to be used a certain way. So maybe they feel like that's in defensive support to Aiten. And with Aiten, you know, I have I'm not quite sure what to expect. Well, this is the one thing he's probably going to put up huge numbers because he's not going to have older dudes that have a higher status in the league that go, I'm sick of passing it to you. So he's probably going to get more touches. We'll probably see like early Aiten numbers and like twenty to ten for the first six weeks of the season. Yeah, I'm with you. Yeah. Like he'll he'll he'll put up some big numbers there. But, you know, defensively, it's really about his competitiveness because there were times I think going back two years ago when we were thinking about him with that run of the Suns, the finals, you're like, look at this guy. Like he can switch out on the smaller players. You can rotate. But it's all about the way he's wired. And I think long term, unfortunately, like we already kind of know the answer there. Like I don't think all of a sudden now you start playing with some fierceness after being in the league this long. So he was the fifth option on that team and there seemed to be real resentment toward him in that whole Phoenix culture of like, why doesn't he just realize we don't need his offense? We need him to basically rebound and block shots and crash the offensive boards. I think his attitude was probably twenty five years old. I want to be the best player I can be. I already went to a finals. I don't that's not I think I could do more than that. So I don't I don't think anyone was necessarily wrong. As I said, on my Thursday pot, I just hated the trade for Phoenix. I just thought they got the poopoo platter back. You know, they got some some some spare ribs back and a couple of egg rolls and and that's it. But they did not get an entree back. And I think he's an entree on the right team, whether he's a guy that made sense for them. I don't know. But I know that they didn't get a good haul for him. I think Rob, for his contract, for what his talents are, is a really intriguing piece for them or for another team, because you could trade for him. And it's not like a daunting salary. Right. I think he's in what is what is it, like 15 a year or something like that? No, it's a really good. Yeah. I mean, it was a really low cost extension and he's still a pretty young guy. Yes, so.

A highlight from Monday of the Twenty-Sixth Week in Ordinary Time A Time of Lectio Divina for the Discerning Heart Podcast
"A time of Lectio Divina for the discerning heart. Monday of the 26th week in ordinary time. As you begin, take a deep breath and exhale slowly.

And so, the one who makes himself as little as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Anyone who welcomes a little child like this in my name, welcomes me.

See that you never despise any of these little ones, for I tell you that their angels in my name are continually in the presence of my Father in heaven. What did your heart feel as you listened? What did you sense the Lord saying to you? Once more, through him, with him, and in him, listen to the word. The disciples came to Jesus and said, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? So he called a little child to him and set the child in front of them. Then he said, I tell you solemnly, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.

See that you never despise any of these little ones, for I tell you that their angels in the kingdom of heaven are continually in the presence of my Father in heaven. What do you hope to carry with you from this time with the Lord? Let us now close with a prayer to the Father that Jesus gave us. Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who love us, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

A highlight from 104: Second Generation Genetics
"Welcome to Oregon Rooted. I'm Higher Peaks and this is Lady Sativa. You're listening to The Dirt Show, where we bring you Oregon's cannabis culture. Yeah, um, I know my water bill is bad. My water bills went way up. I've been using more than I thought I would. Have you been able to stay growing through the hot months here? I have been, but you know, yes I have been. It feels weird. Just because of the heat or because you're doing it? Both because I'm doing it. The market is so dead and to be dropping three and four hundred bucks on electricity every month feels kind of weird. Not just that, but like, you know, environmentally I'm running air conditioners and should I have never really run this much AC anyways, actually my electricity intake is a little bit down from what it was because it's a little bit more efficient. But, I don't know. I've got stuff going where I don't know what I'm going to do with it. We'll see. Well, you're doing it. That's good. I'm doing it, yeah. Are you unfollowing the right people or it seems like maybe some of these crazy fly -by -night breeders have calmed down a little bit. Am I crazy? I feel the same thing. I think the same thing. I'm not sure what happened. I was getting a bunch of heat there. It wasn't that long ago, a month ago. I reposted that thing about following somebody you don't like as a mental illness and things after that just stopped. Everything just stopped. I don't know. I stopped getting tagged to weird shit. I don't know. It's been weeks. I haven't had any drama come up. I think people are just so fatigued too in general. Sure. Social media, man. Fuck. Well, yeah. And in the last few months, I've been purposely unfollowing the ones that are blatantly obvious not to follow. Sometimes I get caught up with people following me and it's like, man, you got to keep that filter going. Gotcha. So what kind of work you've been putting in? Is it for the lines or are you just doing stuff personal or what's going on? Catch us up. Second plant that I've attempted to reverse. I think it's like the fifth or sixth reversal attempt that I've done. I'm still kind of a novice at this. But the pollen sacks or whatever, they don't have a little dangly part that they do on a regular male plant. Okay. They open up, but they don't dangle. So we don't like flapping the wind and they struggle to release that pollen. So I've a couple of times now I've gone in there and plucked them off with the tweezers and collected as much as I could. And it looks like I've got a couple successful pollination sites. But as to whether how many you'll have to be seen. And then I've got a couple of other tester things going on. Couple of things with DJ that we've collaborated on. Nice. Using those cocoa cushion nails. And then I've got my personal stuff going that my smoke. It's been really nice to be able to produce my own smoke again. I went a year and a half, two years there. No, I wasn't able to. I've been getting the most fun out of that to grow on my own smoke. Yeah, it is. It's I don't know. I prefer it. It's got to suck not being able to. I've been lucky that way. But were you going like party for asking or whatever, but were you going to dispensaries or how? Yeah. Damn. Yeah, that sucks. I was getting kicked out and shit from friends and stuff. But, you know, I smoke a lot. I remember one time I had an incident where I went to this one shop and they, you know, I would make big big he said, I mean, I used to sell weed, you know, I'm growing weed for years and years. So I know what Keith Nugget looks like. And man, I was disappointed. Yeah, I had a little freak out. That never happened to me on the black market. I was like, man, this is an illegal market. I've been more ripped off in the legal market than I. Oh, yeah. I it's hard for me to go to dispensaries. I still do occasionally not for flower anymore, of course, but, you know, edibles. I mean, geez, man, it's it's so hard to get for me anyway. I homogenizing not getting something that kicks my ass or is too weak, you know, so I do like the edibles I do buy at the dispensary. But are you a med patient? I should be, you know, but I haven't I guess I'm lazy, man. I I saving that tax money would be huge. It's expensive. Yeah, it's like 27 percent or something. I don't remember. That's right. I think that they do. They still restrict the milligram amount for med versus rec. It's weird. It depends on the edible, like if it's a child like edible. So if it's a gummy or something like that. Yeah, they're restricted to 100 milligrams, which I mean, I guess I can see, you know, if it was 100. Yeah, to 100 milligrams per. I mean, obviously, you can buy a buy up to five units per day. So why? Go ahead. I think back when I was buying and they were restricted to like 25 milligrams. I see. So 100 milligrams will do you two of those, right? Oh, well, so then if you don't get the gum, I do like the gummies because they work quick. I like the sugar base, obviously not for health, but for the, you know, edible. But actually, if you get something different like the syrups, which they don't consider to be like a child issue thing. So if you buy the syrups, you can get up to a thousand milligrams in those. And of course, that's that for me, that's too much. I prefer like I'll buy a 250 milligram syrup and then I'll split that between two nights. So I'll split, you know, one hundred and twenty five twice. And that seems to be the most efficient, affordable way to do it. Hundred milligrams is nice. But like you said, you said what you get two of them. And it's like, yeah, 200 milligrams is too much, but a hundred is not enough to put me down. Well, yeah. And then I get a massive hangover in the morning where I just don't want to get out of bed for three hours. And it's like that does not help the day. But that's really all I buy. You know, I've noticed, though, lately just messing around with these autos I've been screwing with. They don't obviously put out a lot of volume. And so I haven't been getting much in. But, you know, it's not like I guess I always thought I smoked a lot. But it's funny when you grow for yourself, you don't probably need as much as you think. You know what I mean? Like, I don't grow a lot, but it always seems to be available that the stuff I've grown. So I don't know. I tend to smoke a lot more when I when I grow my own. I see. Like, like joints and stuff or? No, just quantity. I like the bong, you know, the classic bong boy, but I'll do joints every once in a while. But I just I just. When I you know, when you buy it, you know, it's like you're smoking your money. And I have that mindset. But growing it, I just like, oh, it's free rain. Right. So like you smoke all day, like as much as you do. Well, I well, I've got a pretty good routine, actually, finally in my older years as I've settled down. And I wait until usually around three. I my am routine. I found that it's best that I conduct at least one activity first. And I feel like I'll get up and have my little morning ritual or smoothie. I go to the post office and what it usually is in the store on the way back or something, you know, get my food, my dinner stuff prepared. And then, you know, once I've got the main bulk of the outside chores done for a day, I'll come back and kind of put away smoke a little bit. A little bit? You said it was a lot. I start with a little bit. So I'll smoke like a bong hit at a time. But then I'll go back and smoke about every 20 minutes, 30 minutes when I'm going. Yeah. So I mean, like, can I ask you, since you're a bong person, do you do the one hits or do you just pack it and just hit it until it's gone? Just one hit. I never understood packing a bowl, smoking, you know, a charcoal bowl. I know, right? Never understood that. Yeah, especially when you have the option in a bong to really clear it every time and whatnot. I've never been a big bong guy, though. I don't know if it's my lungs or what, but it just. Wow. So what do you do? Joints? Yeah, I'll do joints or I mean. Joints are harsh. They can be. That's why I mean, you definitely want to smoke good joint weed. As far as where lungs go, joints just blow my lungs out. A bong, it's like you blow it out and you cough, you cough all that shit up and it's kind of done. But a joint, you just keep going and going. I hear what you're saying, man. I hear what you're saying. I mean, I think sometimes, and this is just, you know, speculation, but I think sometimes it's almost like if you get the technique down, it's like whether it's bong, whether it's bong or joint or whatever, if you get the technique and the skill down, it's like you can minimize that stuff. But if you don't have the right technique, it can mess you up. But I don't know. That's just. I don't know. I think that's right. I think, you know, growing up so poor, you never lose that mindset. And so every time I roll up a joint, you know, it's just smoking, period. Like, you know, you got one chance to fill up the lungs at a time and you got to put as much in there as possible. That's the point. Yeah. Well, absolutely.

A highlight from Sunday of the Twenty-Sixth Week in Ordinary Time A Time of Lectio Divina for the Discerning Heart Podcast
"A time of Lectio Divina for the discerning heart. Sunday of the 26th week in ordinary time. As you begin, take a deep breath and exhale slowly. For the next few moments, surrender all the cares and concerns of this day to the Lord. Say slowly from your heart, Jesus, I trust in you. You take over. Become aware that he is with you, looking upon you with love, wanting to be heard deep within your heart. A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew chapter 21 verses 28 through 32. Jesus said to the chief priests and elders of the people, what is your opinion? A man had two sons. He went and said to the first, my boy, you go and work in the vineyard today. He answered, I will not go, but afterwards thought better of it and went. The man then went and said the same thing to the second who answered, certainly, sir, but did not go. Which of the two did the father's will? The first, they said. Jesus said to them, I tell you solemnly, tax collectors and prostitutes are making their way into the kingdom of God before you. For John came to you a pattern of true righteousness, but you did not believe him, and yet the tax collectors and prostitutes did. Even after seeing that, you refused to think better of it and believe in him. What word made this passage come alive for you? What did you sense the Lord saying to you? Once more, give the Lord an opportunity to speak to you. Jesus said to the chief priests and elders of the people, what is your opinion? A man has two sons. He went and said to the first, my boy, you go and work in the vineyard today. He answered, I will not go, but afterwards thought better of it and went. The man then went and said the same thing to the second who answered, certainly, sir, but did not go. Which of the two did the father's will? The first, they said, Jesus said to them, I tell you solemnly, tax collectors and prostitutes are making their way into the kingdom of God before you. For John came to you, a pattern of true righteousness, but you did not believe him. And yet the tax collectors and prostitutes did. Even after seeing that you refuse to think better of it and believe in him. What did your heart feel as you listened? What did you sense the Lord saying to you? Once more through him, with him, and in him, listen to the word. Jesus said to the chief priests and elders of the people, what is your opinion? A man had two sons. He went and said to the first, my boy, you go and work in the vineyard today. He answered, I will not go, but afterwards thought better of it and went. The man then went and said the same thing to the second who answered, certainly, sir, but did not go. Which of the two did the father's will? The first, they said, Jesus said to them, I tell you solemnly, tax collectors and prostitutes are making their way into the kingdom of God before you. For John came to you, a pattern of true righteousness, but you did not believe him. And yet the tax collectors and prostitutes did. Even after seeing that you refuse to think better of it and believe in him. What touched your heart in this time of prayer? What did your heart feel as you prayed? What do you hope to carry with you from this time with the Lord? Let us now close with a prayer to the father that Jesus gave us. Our father who art in heaven hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day, our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us and from evil. Amen. Amen. Amen. Amen.
A highlight from Neil Mammen
"Ladies and gentlemen, looking for something new and original. Something unique and without equal. Look no further. Here comes the one and only Eric Metaxas. Folks, welcome to the program. I am so excited right now. I could burst almost literally, but not literally. I have on a friend, Neil Mammon, who is involved in something that I've been talking about for some time. It's really exciting. So before I tell you all about it, why don't I just say welcome, Neil Mammon. Thank you, Eric. Good to be here again. Okay. We're going to be talking about something. I can't believe it exists. I feel like I dreamt it up, but nobody would ever execute such a thing. But you and Roger Elswick have made this a reality. This is a big deal. This is an answer to a real problem we have. I say everywhere I go that folks, if you're going to a church that is not dealing with the issues in our culture, that is unwilling to face this and that is whistling in the wind, that is fiddling while Rome burns, you need to find another church. I say this over and over and I beg people, God will judge you for sitting in a church that is shrinking from its duty before God to speak to these issues. And then the question is, people say, well, where would I go to a church? So, Neil, tell us. Well, the problem is really, really obvious and I get that all the time. I go around speaking, people go, oh, do you know a good church in this area or that area? Well, it turns out that more than that, it turns out 1 .7 million people look for a new church every month. 1 .7 people look for a new church. A billion. A billion. And now if you assume that's a family unit here or there, that's about 5 million people looking for a new church every month. 5 million. Most of them, turns out, it's Sunday morning. So I wanted to do some research on it, so I went on, you know, the source of all information is Google's Bard Artificial Intelligence. And I said, tell me what sort of churches these people are looking for. And Bard comes back with, oh, they're looking for progressive, more loving, more accepting churches. That's what Google's Bard said. And I said, really? Is that true? I don't believe that. So I said, give me the information. Give me the evidence of that. By the way, before I start, I should mention this. I have a statistic. I want a statistic. I want your readers. I don't want you to guess because you'll know the answer. Here's a quote. Only 17 percent of Americans go to church. The interest in religion is minimal. And in New York, single women are more likely to be sexually active than attend a church. Worse, 33 percent of all pregnancies in New York are out of wedlock. Now, I ask people, what decade do they think that is? And they always say, oh, oh, that's 1990s, 2000s, whatever, right? You know, actually, this is 1990s because today is probably a lot worse. But we'll come back to that. But so so I asked Bard, I said, what what since you think that these are people looking for progressive churches, can you give me a list of the growth rate of progressive churches? And Bard said, OK, so it gives me this rate and it's you know, it shows me this list of people of churches and like the UMC. They've dropped like 50 percent, the Presbyterian, the USA, you know, the liberal Presbyterian Church, they've dropped by 38 percent. And so I go down that list and I ask I ask I say, well, give me the list of all the progressive churches and how they've grown in the last 20 years. So from 2000 to 2020. So in 2000, the progressive total people going to progressive total was about 18 .7 million. And today it's about 16 .8 million. So they've dropped by 10 percent total. There's no surprise people going to these ridiculous, you know, quote unquote progressive churches that have veered away from biblical doctrine. I'm surprised anybody goes to those. Exactly. I mean, the the Presbyterians, they've dropped. The Presbyterians were the ones that dropped by 50 percent. The UMC has dropped by 15 percent. Yeah, because why go to a church like that when you could go to to like a local, you know, Neil, where are you going? What's the punch line? Because I'm getting confused. Are you? I know there's my assumption would be that most people who actually care about church are trying to find a conservative church, a church that teaches biblical doctrine, but also that speaks to the issues that people like because many people can go to these ridiculous mega church or whatever, where they they're avoiding the hot button issues that everybody has to deal with when they leave that church, their kids are dealing with it, everybody's dealing with it. What's going on in America? So the idea is, how do you find those churches? So I know that's where you're heading with this. So I turned the bar and I said, OK, now give me the conservative churches. I'm on board just looking for liberal churches, progressives. I said, give me the conservative churches. And it gives me things like, oh, the Orthodox Presbyterians, they have grown by 50 percent in the last 20 years. The Orthodox Russians have gone by 29 percent. Independent Baptists have grown by 33 percent. The conservative. And so I did I said, what about the Calvary church? The Calvary churches have grown by one hundred and fifty percent. And then the you know, even the Southern Baptists who's stuck in the news all the time, they've grown by seven and a half percent. OK, but conservative total have grown from sixty seven million people in 2000 going to these conservative churches to ninety two million going to these conservatives. So they've grown by almost thirty seven percent in the last 20 years. Now, what's interesting about this and this is the kicker here. This is all pre covid data. It didn't have any data for twenty one, twenty two, twenty three. This is twenty twenty. And as you know, and you're going to be preaching in my church in Santa and in in San Jose and sometime in your future Calvary Chapel, San Jose, right. They grew from three hundred people to three thousand people over covid. Why? Because a couple of things is very important here. Pastor Mike said, I'm not going to let the state determine what I'm doing. I'm going to be legislated, be active with voter guides. We had candidates coming in who's fighting the state. Remember, we say we're the finest church in all of America because we have four million dollars in Calvary Chapel, San Jose, because we wouldn't shut down for covid. So churches like these have been exploding all over the nation. So just these numbers are three years old and I can't seem to get the twenty twenty three numbers. So, no, the people who are looking for church. And so I went back to Bartlett said, well, this is the growth rate. Our people are really looking for more progressive rates. And, you know, I always say, well, I'm really sorry. I apologize. Yes, you're right. They must be looking for conservative Bible believing fundamentalist churches is what it comes back to. So it actually says, oh, yeah, you're right. You were correcting me on it. Right. So the issue here is then why? How do we find these if five million people are looking for churches every single month, how are they going to find these conservative churches? OK, this is this is a very long way of getting to the punch line, because this is such an exciting punch line, Neil, that I am just at the bit to get to this. We started. I know what I mean. I just want to say.
A highlight from 1415: Bitcoin Will Soon Hit $500,000 - Winklevoss Twins
"Welcome everybody to Crypto News Alerts, the number one daily Bitcoin pod. In today's show, I'll be breaking down the latest Bitcoin technical analysis as Bitcoin recaptures $27 ,000 and quoting Max Keiser, the high priest of Bitcoin, Bitcoin is the North Star guiding to the only safe haven asset in the world that protects against inflation, confiscation and censorship preach. Also in today's show, Ethereum futures ETFs can start trading as early as next week. According to top Bloomberg analysts, we'll also be discussing the SEC pushing back the deadline for spot Bitcoin ETF apps, definitely not a good look. And speaking of ETF apps, I'm also going to be sharing the five highlights of Gary Gensler's evasive testimony before Congress quoting Senator Warren Davidson. Gary Gensler's tenure at the SEC highlights two key problems. Number one, Gary Gensler's problem and number two, the SEC's structural problem. That's why I introduced the SEC Stabilization Act to fire Gary Gensler and restructure the SEC. Let's freaking go. Also in today's show, crypto analyst Michal van de Poppe predicts a very positive quarter four for 2023. I'll be sharing his targets in which he outlines. We're also going to be discussing the SEC's inaction on the spot Bitcoin ETF is a complete and utter disaster, according to the Winklevoss twins. And speaking of the Winklevoss twins, I'm also going to be sharing with you their $500 ,000 Bitcoin price prediction, which they say is coming soon. 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. This is pod episode number 1415. I'm your host JV. Today is September 28, 2023 and Bitcoin is finally back above 27 ,000 as we're pumping right when I hit the live button. We're currently above 27 ,100 up over 300 % today and we continue climbing. Welcome everyone in the live chat. I gracefully appreciate y 'all. Yeah, who knows? Maybe we'll hit 28 ,000 by the time today's live stream is over. Let's see. And make sure to let me know where you're tuning in from in that live chat as I'll be giving everyone a shout out towards the end of the show. And with that being shared, fam, now let's dive into today's market watch. As you can see here, every major crypto back in the green. Bitcoin above 27 G's. We got Ether up three and a half percent trading at $1 ,655 BNB, XRP, Cardano, you name it. And checking out coinmarketcap .com, we're currently sitting above $1 .07 trillion with about $26 billion in volume in the past 24 hours, Bitcoin dominance at 49 .1 % and even the Ether dominance on the rise today at 18 .5 % and checking out the top 100 crypto gainers of the past 24 hours, holy moly, compound up 20 % trading under 49 bucks, followed by Thor chain up 13 % trading at $1 .94, followed by Lido Dow up 8 % trading at $1 .59 and checking out the top 100 crypto gainers of the past week, massive gains, which we love to see, especially after a pretty bearish altcoin season to say the least. We got CompLead in the pack here as well up 20 % and Rune up 13 .4 % and RLB up 13 % and checking out the crypto greed and fear index, we're currently rated a 46 in fear yesterday at 44 last week, a 47 and last month, a 39 in fear. So there you have it, fam. How many of you are currently bullish on Bitcoin and how many of you took advantage of the recent dip? If so, let me know. It's good to see we pump in once again. So hopefully those positions are now in the green. Now let's break down today's Bitcoin technical analysis, check out the charts and why specifically the market is pumping right now. Here we go. Let's get it. Bitcoin hit new weekly highs after the September 28th Wall Street open as markets awaited fresh cues from the US Federal Reserve. And here you can see in the Bitcoin one hour Campbell chart, pretty freaking bullish to say the least. Data from Cointelegraph and TradingView showed Bitcoin price strength staging a comeback, having delivered what some referred to as a classic pump and dump 24 hours prior during the performance. Bitcoin hit a high of 26 .8, which appeared on Bitstamp as a result of 2 % daily gains before Bitcoin retraced all of its progress, then a slower grind higher than took hold with the bulls edging closer to 27 ,000, which we finally just recaptured here a few moments ago. Now GDP for quarter two grew by 1 .7 % year on year below the projected 2%, while the PCE index data for August came in in line with the expectations, quoting analyst Keith Allen, bring on the volatility. Now meanwhile, data from Binance's order book uploaded by Allen showed little by way of resistance standing in the way of the spot price under the 27 ,000 mark. So as you can see, just more bullishness for the king crypto, the macro data constituted just the prelude of the day's main event. Meanwhile, Jerome Powell, the chairman of the Federal Reserve due to the comment later on today, Powell, whose recent words failed to deliver noticeable volatility to the crypto markets was due to speak at the Fed's conversation with the chairman, a teacher town hall meeting event in Washington DC at 4 p .m. Eastern today. Now commenting on the state of play on Bitcoin markets, popular trader Dan crypto trades was a little more optimistic around the strength of the day's move compared to yesterday, September 27th, quoting him here back to yesterday's highs, but with considerably less open interests. No doubt there is longs chase in here, but it is less frothy than it was yesterday. Would still like to see longs chill out and not get to a full retrace later on. So there you have it. Let me know if you agree or disagree with the analysts. Meanwhile, quoting another analyst, right, capital Bitcoin is right back at the bull market support band cluster of moving averages, challenging to break out beyond them. Let's freaking go. Now, elsewhere in the day's analysis, he acknowledged that 29 ,000 could make a reappearance and still form a part of a broader come down for BTC. As he shares here, it's important to remember the Bitcoin could technically rally even as high as 29 ,000 to form a new lower high, which would be phase A and B. He explained alongside this chart. So there you have it. Let me know if you are currently more bullish or bearish on the King crypto and quoting the high priest of Bitcoin, Max Kaiser, Bitcoin is the North star guiding to the only safe haven asset in the world that protects against inflation confiscation and censorship preach. Now welcome to y 'all just joining us in today's podcast. As always, I appreciate everyone's daily support and means the world. And now let's discuss our next story of the day as Bitcoin continues to pump, shall we? We're going to be discussing the Ethereum futures ETFs, which can get approval. They say potentially as early as next week. So let's break this one down, shall we? Ether futures ETFs could start trading for the first time in the United States as early as next week. According to top Bloomberg analysts on September 28th, which is today, Bloomberg intelligence analyst, James Safart said in an ex post, it was looking like the sec is going to let a bunch of Ethereum futures ETFs go next week. Potentially. His comments were in response to fellow ETF analyst, Eric Balchunes, who said he was hearing that the U S SCC wanted to accelerate the launch of Ethereum future ETFs quitting him here. They want it off their plate before the shutdown, he said, adding that he's heard various filers updates on their documents by Friday afternoon so they can start trading as early as Tuesday next week. As outlined here on X. Now the U S S government's expected to shut down at 1201 a .m. Eastern on October 1st. If Congress fails to agree on or provide funding for the new fiscal year, which is expected to impact the country's financial regulators amongst federal agencies. Now neither specified their sources for the latest update on the long list of crypto ETFs in the queue. There are currently 15 ether futures ETFs from nine issuers currently awaiting approval. According to the analysts in a September 27th note, which is yesterday, companies proposing an Ethereum futures or hybrid ETF product include VanEck pro shares, grayscale volatility shares bitwise direction, as well as round Hill. The analysts gave ether future ETFs a 90 % chance of launching in October with Valkyrie's ether exposure on October 3rd, quoting them here. We expect pure Ethereum futures ETFs to start trading the following week, thanks to volatility shares actions. However, we don't expect all of them to launch. So do note that now as previously reported that ether futures ETFs may be approved in October causing the 11 % spike in ether prices and probably why the Ethereum dominance is up as it's been stagnant and down for quite some time. Ether prices are on the gain, currently just under $1 ,700 and we'll see how high we continue to pump, but do note crypto future products aren't as hotly as anticipated as their spot based alternatives. There are already been Bitcoin futures ETFs approved in the United States since 2021, which is a fact, which leads us to the million dollar question. Why have they approved a futures ETFs, but continue to deny and delay all the spot ETFs? We're going to be getting to that a little later as I share with you the highlights from Congress pressing the chairman of the SEC, Gary Gensler. It's going to get very interesting here in a little bit, but now let's dive a little deeper and discuss specifically the spot Bitcoin ETFs and what is happening and why they're being pushed back and the latest updates of where we're currently at. So here we go and welcome y 'all just tuning in. Make sure to smash that like fam. The US SEC has delayed deciding whether to approve or disapprove spot Ether ETFs. And like I said, we're going to be getting in October potentially get some approvals, but in separate notices filed September 27th, the SEC said it would designate a longer period on whether to approve or disapprove these proposed changes. The commission finds it inappropriate to designate a longer period within which to take action on the proposed rule change so that it has sufficient time to consider the proposed rule change and the issues raised there within. The delay came the same day as the NASDAQ market filed the proposed rule change with the SEC for listing its mix ETH basically ETF, a combination of Ether holdings and futures contracts and also proposed rule changes with the New York Stock Exchange, ARCA for the Grayscale Ethereum Futures Trust, hashtag Bitcoin Futures ETF and the CBOE BXE exchange for the Franklin Bitcoin ETF were all filed. September 27th, that's right. If you're not familiar with Franklin Templeton, there are one and a half trillion dollar asset manager. They're also applying for an ETF. Now the SEC announced September 26th, it would designate a longer period to decide on these spot ETF applications. And as James Safart shares here, here's VanEx delay as expected. So another one, I mean, exactly what we were expecting from the SEC. Now in August, ARK investment manager, founder and CEO Kathy Wood speculated that should the SEC move forward with the spot ETF approvals, it would allow multiple listings simultaneously to avoid giving any single company an advantage over another in the market. Her remarks came before Grayscale Investments won a court battle with the SEC over its spot Bitcoin ETF app, which will likely be reviewed in which they're trying to turn their GBTC product into a spot ETF. So hopefully it happens. To date, the SEC has never approved the spot crypto ETF in the United States, but has allowed the listing of crypto linked futures ETFs and a leveraged Bitcoin futures ETF. Manipulation, fam. The next deadlines for the spot crypto ETF apps from firms, which include the largest asset manager in the world, BlackRock, Wisdom Tree, Invesco, Galaxy, Valkyrie, Bitwise and Fidelity are all scheduled for October. So we'll see how this is likely to play out considering October is now only three days away. Are we going to get some ETF approvals by then? Who knows? I think more than likely they're going to push it back again. However, Congress right now is pressing Gary Gensler to approve a spot Bitcoin ETF and ETPs immediately. So now let's break this down. If you missed Gensler, he was pressed by Congress just yesterday. And I know it's on everyone's mind. So let's break down some of the highlights from this recent hearing with Congress and the chairman of the SEC, Gary Gensler. Let's break it down, shall we? Here we go. Blame for kneecapping capital markets in the U .S. and slam for dodging questions around Bitcoin and Pokemon cards. SEC chair Gensler appears to have had one hell of a grilling from Congress this week. September 27th, the U .S. SEC chief again found himself in front of lawmakers in a scheduled hearing to discuss his agency's oversight of the markets. Here are some of the highlights. First and foremost, you are the Tonya Harding of security regulations. We should create a Gary Gensler diss track, right? One of the more colorful analogies came from U .S. Representative Andy Barr, who accused Gensler of kneecapping the U .S. capital markets with regulatory red tape. Barr referred to the old testimony from Gensler where Gensler argued that the U .S. is the largest, most sophisticated and innovative capital market in the world and that shouldn't have been taken for granted as even gold medalists must keep training. With all due respect, Mr. Chairman, if the U .S. capital markets are gold medalists, you are the Tonya Harding of securities regulations. Ouch. You are kneecapping the U .S. capital markets with an avalanche of red tape coming out of your commission. Preach. Barr is presumably referring to a scandal where U .S. ice skater Tonya Harding, I'm sure you all remember the story, I was a kid when this happened, and an assailant to attack her rival Nancy Kerrigan in the lead up to the 94 U .S. Figure Skating Championships and Winter Olympics. Kerrigan ended up not competing in the U .S. Championships and here is John Dickens who shared it here. Mr. Barr to Gensler, it's hilarious, you gotta watch these clips for yourself if you haven't seen them. So the next highlight, I wish the Biden administration would say, you are fired. That's right, shout out to Warren Davidson who also ripped into Gensler saying he hoped that the Biden administration would fire him. Powerful words. Davidson accused Gensler of pushing a woke political and social agenda and abusing his role as the SEC chairman. Preach. Massive shout out to the senators here doing their job. Damn good job. The U .S. Representative added that he hopes that the SEC Stabilization Act he introduced with fellow representative Tom Emmer could make it happen. Quoting him here, you're making the case for this bill, which is the SEC Stabilization Act. Every day you're acting as a chairman, he concluded, and Gensler wasn't even given a chance to respond. Now next highlight, Gensler reiterates Bitcoin isn't a security. That's right. When asked by U .S. House Committee Financial Services Chair Patrick McHenry whether Bitcoin is a security, Gensler eventually relented stating the Bitcoin didn't meet the Howie test. Quoting him here, it does not meet the Howie test, which is the law of the land. Then McHenry suggested Bitcoin must be a commodity, which Gensler avoided answering. Mr. No Clarity Gary, hence how he got the nickname, saying the test for that is outside the scope of U .S. security laws. Mr. Gensler, we're living in a clown world with this guy. Henry also suggested that Gensler try to choke off the digital asset ecosystem facts and refuse to be transparent with Congress about the SEC's connections with the FTX and former CEO SBF facts. Gensler also wasn't given the chance to respond to the claims made by McHenry. Next highlight, are Pokemon trading card securities? Gensler says it depends. Can't make this stuff up. Quoting Representative Richie Torres, I cross -examine SEC Chair Gensler about the term investment contract, which is key to determining his authority over crypto. Gensler struggled to answer basic questions like whether an investment contract requires a contract. His evasions are defeating and damning. Suppose I was to purchase Pokemon card. Would you constitute a security for this transaction? Gensler responded, well, I don't know the context before eventually concluding it isn't a security if you purchased it in a store. And then Torres asked if I were to purchase a tokenized Pokemon card on a digital exchange via the blockchain. Is that then a transaction? And then Mr. No Clarity Gary said, I'd have to know more because I don't know anything. Yeah, you can't make this stuff up. Gensler then explained to it when it's investing the public can anticipate profits based upon the efforts of others. Then the core of the Howie test, which it is, Torres called Gensler's evasions as damning to say the least. And the next highlight, a sign of defiance. Meanwhile, amongst the back and forth cross examinations between Gensler and representatives, the eagle eyed observers noticed a Coinbase stand with crypto logo behind the SEC chairman. Isn't that interesting? The Coinbase led initiative is a 14 month long campaign that launched back in August aiming to push crypto legislation in the United States. Coinbase also ran a stand with crypto day, which took place in Washington, D .C. September 27th to advocate for better cryptocurrency innovation and policy. So again, shout out to Warren Davidson, Tom Emmer, all the senators for holding Gary Gensler accountable. Hopefully they do something about it. What's your thoughts, fam? Do you think Gary is likely to listen to them and follow their instructions and approve a Bitcoin ETF immediately? Or do you think he'll continue kicking the can down the road as long as possible until he leaves his position as the chairman of the SEC? Let me know your honest thoughts in the comments right down below. Now let's break down the latest prediction coming from crypto analyst Michael Vanay Pop for some price actions for Bitcoin for the fourth quarter, which we are currently in for 2023. Then we'll break down the latest from the Winklevoss twins and their five hundred thousand dollar Bitcoin price action as the price action of Bitcoin continues to pump, baby. Let's go. Here we go. Let's break this baby down. Crypto trader Michael Vanay Pop is expressing bullish sentiment on Bitcoin in the coming months. Despite the recent struggles in a new video, he says that Bitcoin is on the cusp of reaching levels that offer accumulation opportunities per inch. According to the analyst, the trader Bitcoin could subsequently start an uptrend. Ultimately, Bitcoin is into an area of consolidation here, which makes it very likely we're going to have to retest here at twenty five, six and twenty five eight. If we are having a recess in that region, then there is this zone where I want to start buying my entries because of the recess, which is the ultimate recess. And if we're not going to get that, the flip to twenty six thousand five hundred, that is going to be the area where I think I want to activate my positions as well. And then we can start targeting twenty eight thousand. And then we can also start targeting the higher numbers, thirty thousand dollars plus or even more in the projection of quarter four. That is going to be very positive overall. Let me know if you agree that we'll have an overall positive quarter as we about to enter October. Let's go. Vanay Pop also says Bitcoin's current price action is similar to what was witnessed in the prior pre halving year, quitting him again. As long as we stay above the 200 week exponential moving average, we most likely are going to continue to the upside. And it starts to be very comparable to the period that we witnessed in 2015 and 2016. In this case, we needed it, but we started to consolidate and start to trend up afterwards. It is very likely to this period to slowly but surely the price starts to crawl up. And then we are going to have a case of the upside in the markets overall. And to watch this video analysis, the analyst did check the show notes below the video in the description. It's entitled Bitcoin price. I am looking to buy. So there you have it. And let me know if you agree or disagree with the analysts and are you currently bullish on the King crypto or do you think we're going to dip and test the lower levels? Let me know your honest thoughts, fam. And now let's break down our next story of the day. And the Winklevoss twins on the spot, Bitcoin ETF continuously being basically denied and kicked back and pushed back for the past decade. And then we're going to dive into their half a million dollar Bitcoin price prediction and why they're so confident that the Bitcoin price is going to hit their big target. So here we go. Let's discuss them with the SEC first. This was a story which was, let's see when their tweet was actually, let's scroll down. This is Cameron Winklevoss. This was actually on July 1st, it got 1 .1 million views. Now let me read the tweet. Today marks 10 years since Tyler and I filed for the first spot Bitcoin ETF. That's right. Over a decade ago, the SEC governor's refusal to approve these products for a decade has been a complete and utter disaster for US investors and demonstrates how the SEC is a failed regulator. Here's why. They protected investors from the best performing asset of the last decade. They pushed investors into toxic products like the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust, GBTC, which trades at a massive discount to NAV and charges astronomical fees. They pushed spot Bitcoin activity offshore to unlicensed and unregulated venues. They pushed investors into the arms of FTX, subjecting them to one of the largest financial frauds in modern history. Preach. Maybe the SEC will reflect on its dismal record and instead of overstepping a statutory power and trying to act like a gatekeeper of economic life, it'll focus on fulfilling its mandate of investor protection, fostering fair and orderly markets and facilitating capital formation. This would have led to much better outcomes for US investors. Preach. In the meantime, best of luck to all those fighting the good fight to bring the US spot Bitcoin ETFs to life onwards. So much respect. I mean, 10 years of denying this ETF. I mean, you can't make this stuff up. I think they shared perfectly some of the reasoning. It's to hurt the investors and keep you poor and keep you wrecked and keep you desolate and dependent upon a broken government that threw us overboard so frickin long ago. So much respect to the Winklevoss twins. If you didn't know, they're the owners of the Gemini exchange and they were the very first ever to submit the spot Bitcoin ETF app to the SEC over a decade ago. And obviously they're sick and tired of Gary Gensler, his no clarity and his shenanigans. Just like the rest of us, it's time to fire Gensler. If you think Gensler should be investigated and potentially fired, let me know in the comments right down below and I'll be reading your comments out loud here in a little bit. Now for our breaking story of the day, let's discuss the Winklevoss twins and their case for a $500 ,000 Bitcoin price, which they believe is coming soon. So let's break this down, shall we? And welcome to y 'all just joining us in the live chat. Much love and much respect. So here we go. Winklevoss twins' prediction, Bitcoin will soon hit $500 ,000 per coin. And why? And again, shout out to Tyler and Cameron. Let's get, we already know their background, early Bitcoin investors, OGs, early investors as well with Facebook. Some claim that they're the real creators of Facebook and Zuckerberg stole it. But nonetheless, in a recent interview with the National News, the twins explained they remain convinced of the future of crypto. The main reason is the revolutionary and technical properties as well as the potential of Bitcoin to act as a store of value similar to gold. And in addition, crypto has many other advantages, mainly through programmability. Hence, the Winklevoss brothers believe that Bitcoin could even replace the precious metal. In the long term, Tyler Winklevoss shared the following. If you look at the properties that make gold valuable, Bitcoin matches each attribute or does better. The gold disruption story of Bitcoin is super powerful. We believe in it. Tyler Winklevoss explained his reasoning for the $500 ,000 Bitcoin price action, quitting him here. If you do the math, 21 million in the supply of Bitcoin, the market cap of gold, let's say it's 10 trillion, maybe it's 11 trillion, somewhere in that ballpark, that puts one Bitcoin if it disrupts gold and gets that market cap at $500 ,000 per coin. The two brothers did not want to give specific investment tips. However, Cameron reveals the strategy that they use, which is generally the simplest, which is simply HODL. Hold on for dear life, quitting him here. Generally speaking, if you subscribe to Bitcoin being a store of value type investment, then that strategy is HODL. The same way you would HODL gold is you buy and HODL long term investments. So according to the Winklevoss twins predicting the Bitcoin price will hit $500 ,000, they say predictions are difficult, but they believe that Bitcoin will hit the milestone within a decade. And when they were more recently interviewed and asked, where do you see Bitcoin in five years time? Here's what Cameron Winklevoss responded. We usually take a decade view on it. When we wrote a piece on the value that predicted it being $500 ,000 Bitcoin, we said within the decade. And I believe they wrote that in 2020. So they're basically saying by the year 2030, they're anticipating a $500 ,000 plus Bitcoin price with Bitcoin overtaking that of gold as far as the market cap. Now is that in three years from now or nine years? The timing part is hard, but I think the Bitcoin created $1 trillion worth of value in under a decade. That is fact. I believe back in November of 2021, Bitcoin's market cap surpassed a trillion dollar milestone and the total crypto market cap surpassed $3 trillion. But as of today, we're closer to a $500 billion Bitcoin market cap with the entire crypto market cap down to a trillion. Now, it also spawned many huge productions such as Ethereum and the entire asset class. He continues. If you look at the value increases in Bitcoin, it is this punctuated equilibrium where it is steady, steady, steady, and then boom, it reaches a new price level. This is the new normal. So it can happen very quickly. So there you have it, fam. Ultimately saying when Bitcoin takes off, it explodes quick and vast. And especially considering that two of the most bullish catalysts in Bitcoin history were on the cusp of. Six months away from a Bitcoin halving, we all know the Bitcoin cycles every four years, it drives the Bitcoin price up as it increases the scarcity as well as increase demand, basic stock to flow, numbers must go up. And we also have the approval of a Bitcoin ETF likely to take place in 2024, especially with Congress on Gensler's. But we also have the ETF experts such as Eric Balchunes given a 95 % chance probability that a spot Bitcoin ETF likely get approved in 2024. Those two catalysts will absolutely make Bitcoin rip to new all time highs entering price discovery mode like we have never seen before. So how high do you think the Bitcoin price will likely climb by the time of this next halving? Roughly six months out, scheduled to take place sometime in April of next year.

A highlight from SEC GARY GENSLER HEARING & SUBPOENA SOON? COINBASE CRYPTO ADVOCACY WITH NANCY PELOSI!
"Welcome back to the Thinking Crypto Podcast, your home for cryptocurrency news and interviews. If you are new here, please hit that subscribe button as well as the thumbs up button and leave a comment below. If you're listening on a podcast platform such as Spotify, Apple or Google, please leave a 5 star rating and review. It supports the podcast and it doesn't cost you anything. Well, folks, as you all may know, Gary Gensler testified before the House Financial Services Committee today. He got grilled. He got a lot of pressure questions and things that he was shaking and unable to answer. It's the same old nonsense. And I'm sure many of you saw the clips, so I'm not going to play a whole bunch of clips for you, but I'm going to give you the big takeaways. What can we expect next? And McHenry, Patrick out of the gate, started grilling Gary Gensler. He asked him, is Bitcoin a security? And Gary was like stumbling, like he couldn't even answer it. And of course, you know, Patrick McHenry was like, what are you doing, man? I'm giving you softball questions. You can't answer me. Is Bitcoin a security? So Gary Gensler continued his clown show. This guy's a scumbag regulator, as I've been saying for a long time, and needs to be fired. But the big takeaway from what Patrick McHenry said, folks, he threatened Gary Gensler and said, don't make me have to send a subpoena. And he highlighted that Gary has not sent documents about FTX. He highlighted Gary's losses in court and much more. So I think the next step, you know, I haven't seen this level of threat about a subpoena from these folks. So I think we're getting there, folks. And I'm actually going to be interviewing Congressman Warren Davidson, who also did a great job grilling Gary tomorrow. And he's going to I'm going to ask him about the subpoena and what are the next steps. And of course, he highlighted his SEC Stabilization Act, which essentially fires Gary Gensler and replaces that chair seat, adds another commissioner and an executive director. So it makes the SEC less political and more balanced. And he has some great questions to Gary. You know, he even alluded to the EITH Ethereum free pass. Some of you may have seen the clip. So he did a great job. And once again, I'm interviewing him tomorrow. So be sure you're subscribed on the podcast as well as the YouTube channel. And Tom Emmer also brought some heat on Gary Gensler saying, I'm convinced you are not an impartial regulator. And he went on and did a press conference about this. And Gary Gensler is a bureaucrat who does not answer to Congress and much more. So, you know, similar types of comments that we've seen historically. But I think the subpoena threat was the big takeaway for me. The other stuff was, you could argue, was said historically and said before and other hearings with Gary Gensler. Now, Democrat Richie Torres did a great job of talking to Gary and getting specific, like he highlighted, is buying a Pokemon card a security? Gary said no. So he said, well, what if that Pokemon card got tokenized on the blockchain? It's a den of security. And that's where Gary was going back and forth and saying he needs more details and yada, yada. But great questions by Representative Richie Torres, very laser targeted in detail where Gary is just like caught off guard and he's trying to dodge the questions. So Gary continues to get exposed. And I like what happened today. I think the clips and all the news that are coming out of it, while they may not be very much actionable, where Gary is getting kicked out tomorrow, right? They do paint Gary Gensler in a very bad light. And remember, I've said many times, a lot of politics is simply optics. And if you have bipartisan support against Gary Gensler, that's not good. He's not going to be in that seat for very long. So it's great to see Democrats coming out against Gary Gensler. Now, quick word from our sponsor folks, and that is Uphold, which makes crypto investing easy. I've been a user of Uphold since twenty eighteen. They have ten plus million users, two hundred and fifty plus crypto currencies, and they're available in one hundred and fifty countries. You can also trade precious metals and equities on Uphold. If you'd like to learn more, please visit the link in the description. Also, a great comment from Representative Andy Barr to Gary Gensler on capital markets. He said, if the U .S. capital markets are a gold medalist, you are the Tonya Harding of securities regulation because you are kneecapping the United States capital markets with the avalanche of red tape coming out of your commission. Wow. That is a pretty strong remark there. Many of you know about the Tonya Harding story. If you don't look it up, Nancy Kerrigan and Tonya Harden and someone who was sitting behind Gary Gensler started flashing the Coinbase stand with crypto NFT shield. Many of you have seen that. And someone also highlighted the stand with crypto logo on a piece of paper. So this is similar to what happened with the guy who did the buy Bitcoin behind Janet Yellen years ago. So they put this right behind Gary. So it's pretty funny. This is another one that's going to go in the record books. And on that note, the SEC did acknowledge that the 1 .5 trillion dollar asset manager, Franklin Templeton, spot Bitcoin ETF application. Now, that doesn't mean anything because we need an approval. But things are moving ahead for these new applicants. Now, as all this was happening, guess who was in D .C.? Brian Armstrong and the Coinbase folks. Pretty incredible. And they did this whole campaign where they're at the Hill and a Brian Armstrong tweet out here at our nation's capital for a stand with crypto day with 40 founders from across the country. It's time for America to join the rest of the G20 and get some clear rules on the books. So great move here by Coinbase because the juxtaposition of what Gary is saying and what a big publicly traded crypto company is doing with a whole bunch of founders in D .C., educating and providing advocacy is really, really great. So I love this. And you hear you see Brian posted some photos, he said a great meeting with Speaker Pelosi. Now, all feelings about Nancy Pelosi aside, this she's a Democrat, folks, and I think this is a very smart move, Brian. Very, very smart move, because today even Maxine Waters was praising Gary Gensler. Oh, he's the knight in shining armor. And Gary, you know, you've been doing your thing, protecting Americans from these crypto scammers. Right. So remember, just like two years ago, she was hugging up FTX saying she loves Sam Beckman Fried, blowing kisses, taking campaign donations from FTX. So she's can be bought and sold right pretty easily. And I really like this. Coinbase is playing chess here while Gary Gensler is getting grilled. I love it, love it, love it. And they took a whole bunch of photos here at the Capitol Hill. So smart move by Brian. Really, really smart move. Now, finally, Kraken sets sight on stock trading. So Kraken, the crypto exchange, they're looking to expand their services. And, you know, this makes sense. If you're ordering already an exchange where you sell crypto, you can easily move to stocks. And then I know some other folks have been looking to tokenize stocks and sell those. So this is a pretty big move. And we're going to see that these crypto exchanges are going to expand to other markets. And with the advent of tokenization, you know, they're going to tokenize a lot of the traditional financial markets and assets and commodities and much more. And allow people to easily get access to them globally, 24 seven trading and much more. So obviously this would put them up against like Robinhood, essentially right where you have stocks and you've got crypto in the mix. So I think it absolutely makes sense. Well, folks, that's the news. Let me know what you think. What did you think about Gary today in the hearing? And once again, I'll be interviewing Congressman Warren Davidson tomorrow. So be sure to check out that interview once it's published on Friday. And I'll talk to you all later.
Hunter Biden's Shady $250K Wire Transfer From Beijing
"Is all over the place, but I'm just going to run with the one from Fox News. Hunter Biden received two hundred and fifty thousand dollars in a wire transfer originating in Beijing with beneficiary address listed as Joe Biden's home. So James Comer of the House Oversight Committee announced that yesterday, two hundred fifty grand in twenty twenty nineteen got sent Beijing to Joe Biden's house. Now I ask you, who among us has not gotten a quarter of a million dollars from Beijing sent to their house randomly? That could happen to anybody. And I am not going to join the mob accusing the president of complicity in Hunter Biden's nefarious schemes to get money sent to the family firm via Delaware simply because a quarter million dollars showed up from Beijing at the Biden family house. I'm not going to join that line. Not going to do it wouldn't be prudent.

Learn more at meta .com slash metaverse impact. Go back 230 years of history, four and a half percent on the 10 year treasury yield. That's the average. So there you go. Yeah. 200 years? That's interesting because Katie keeps bringing this up. And what's great about it is there's, I don't think there's any way for us to actually check anyone's this because data goes back 200 and something from Taylor something years here. All right, guys, we've got a lot to talk about here. I want to start off with the Dow Jones Industrial Average. It is down about 389 points, around thirty three thousand and six hundred points down about one percent here on the day, but more importantly, a close back below its 200 day moving average. The first time that that's happened for the Dow Jones Industrial Average since May. The S &P 500 lower by about sixty four points or about one and a half percent. It is close getting closer to that 200 day moving average, but we should point out it is now on the precipice of being an oversold territory when it comes to the RSI. The NASDAQ composite down more than 200 points or one point six percent. And the Russell 2000 going to finish lower on the day by about twenty three points or one point three percent. All right. Digging a little bit deeper into the big cap names, the S &P 500. We've got the S &P 500, as you said, remain broad based in terms of selling some four hundred and fifty five names to the downside. Katie, forty six to the upside to unchanged. So really a risk off day. And unless my eyes deceive me, you take a look at the industry groups. Every single one is down. We're talking about twenty four industry groups. Hopefully we'll show them soon. Every single industry in the red bear telecom was your relative best bet, but still down two tenths of a percent. And then you go down the list, some of the biggest loser, there's tech hardware.
A highlight from Rep. French Hill and Sen. Tom Cotton on opposing the shutdown
"Welcome back, America. I'm Hugh Hewitt, another gold bump in honor of Senator Goldbars Menendez. I'm joined by Representative French Hill from Arkansas. Representative Hill is one of the smart guys because he's on the Intel Committee. That's handpicked and the Republicans are always serious about that. He's also on foreign affairs and financial services. Our old friend John Campbell used to serve on financial services. That's one of the smart committees. So Representative Hill, welcome back. Good to have you. But you are a Vanderbilt grad, so we're not going to talk about football. Seriously, you lost to Wake Forest and the University of Las Vegas. Does that, how does that go down with the Commodore Nation? Well, it's we're always waiting for golf season. Congressman, the House is going to come up with a solution or the government's going to shut down. What's it going to be? Look, Hugh, if we want to be strong, if we want to lock in the wins that we got in the debt ceiling negotiation, when we put forward a plan that actually cut spending year over year, change the regulatory focus, encourage more people back into the workforce, we need to pass these 11 remaining appropriations bills. And that was not gotten to over the summer, even though now think about this, Hugh, even though each of those bills is written at a spending level below the debt ceiling deal and each one locks in conservative policies. It's really so frustrating to me that those have been delayed from coming to the House floor, including twice over the last week by a handful of members when they're missing this big picture. Lock in the wins, cut spending, reduce regulations, get more people back in the workforce, get the spotlight back on Joe Biden's failures and off of the House. Congressman Hill, I don't expect you to speak ill of a colleague, but I can. Congressman Gates wants to be governor of Florida. Congressman Maryland native Matt Rosendale wants to be senator from Montana. Ralph Norman, Congressman Ralph Norman wants to be senator from South Carolina. Going to run against Lindsey Graham. And Congressman Dan Bishop wants to be the attorney general of North Carolina. So I understand self -interest. Those guys have no interest in governing. But do they really want to bring down the Republican majority? Because they're going to get crushed if they do this. Right. But by this kind of of tactic, you're going to end up with a Biden Schumer clean debt ceiling deal and with spending levels, certainly at the Biden McCarthy level, but weaker policy, weaker policies. Because in order to be the strongest negotiator, get the most conservative win, we need to pass the appropriations bills. That's why McCarthy's plan this week of trying to get the rest of the bills across the floor, at least 70 percent of discretionary spending, plus plus a four week short term stopgap spending measure measure that cut spending, repeat cut spending for that one month and put border in the spotlight by putting H .R. two on. There is no conservative that should vote no on that. And this is just arguing against ourselves. It's a huge mistake. Now, Congressman Hill, I call him now St. Kevin. I've known the speaker for a long time, and now I'm going to have him nominated to be considered for sainthood because that is a difficult caucus to deal with. When you've got four members who are leading the Nuckelhead caucus and my buddy Ken Buck wants a CNN contract, there really isn't any appeal to their self -interest. How do you move them? I mean, are you going to have to use Democrat votes? And can and can Speaker McCarthy remain speaker if he uses Democrat votes? Well, I think that's what we have to try every single day to put a bill on the floor and find out that, as you say, this small group is the tyranny of the tiny, as I describe it, is violating the majority of the majority because they're going to hurt the conservative cause. They'll cause us to lose the House. And that's certainly not in the interest of the conservative cause when we're on the cusp, potentially of beating Biden in the presidential election and winning the Senate back. It's ridiculous. You know, if former President Trump gets reelected and the House switches to Democrats, they will impeach him in the first week. Do these allegedly Trump supporting congressmen. And it's Norman. It's Maryland native Matt Rosendale is running for Senate in Montana. It's Ralph Norman and it's Matt. Have they heard from the former president that he wants to be impeached again because they sure are acting like they want him impeached again? Well, look, they don't even they spend what he says now. President Trump last week said use the power of the purse to get control of Joe Biden's two trillion dollars of extra spending. I agree. That's what the debt ceiling does. And that's what these spending bills do. And that's why we have to get them across the House floor. He did not say he Trump did not say shut the government down and act like knuckleheads. He said, use the power of the purse to get the most conservative deal. Get this country back on track. I agree. That's what we could do if we had those four people assist us get these bills across the floor this week. Well, I just their their incentives are to get ink. And I mean, their incentives are not the incentives to govern. And I don't know how hot it gets in the caucus. Can you tell us that our members of the caucus about had it with these guys? There's nothing you can do because they're running for statewide office. But if they had it and expressed it. Well, I think they have had it and expressed it in blunt terms, including calling them out that if you vote against the rule on the House floor, you're working with the minority party. You're working with Democrats when you do that. That is not acting as a member of the majority. And I think you're seeing the country respond to look at Moody's comments yesterday, look at the VIX up to day three percent. Look at the 10 year Treasury rate up over four point five percent. This is going in the wrong direction when we should be taking a win right now of cutting spending 24 over 23, getting better rules and regulations in place, countering Joe Biden's bad policies. And as I say, encouraging more people back to work through our welfare reforms. These are classic conservative Republican wins. And we're squandering the opportunity. Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory is kind of a Republican specialty in the House. So let's let's focus on that for a moment. When do you get a test vote today or tomorrow on whether or not the four will move or they will stay for? They've got more than four right now, but you've got serious people like Chip Roy are not playing these games. Will the Freedom Caucus bring whatever persuasive influence they have to bear on them? Well, we're going to bring a rule. The rules committee met Friday and all day Saturday, so we'll be bringing a rule up either tonight or early in the morning. That will be the first test case to see if we can move these spending bills, which includes state and foreign operations spending, which is at one point seven billion below twenty nineteen levels.

I'm not gonna lie It's very purposeful and I'm very very grateful and privileged Opti and I are and the rest of the simply Bitcoin crew But but it is it is quite a bit of a grind. So on weekends, I get to chill. Anyways enough of that breaking news Michael Saylor buys Even more Bitcoin the man or micro strategy better said now owns almost 1 % of all Bitcoin sky talk about Conviction this is conviction Michael Saylor is proving to the world and this is something that I've been saying guys in the next two or three years it is going to be Undeniable, it's gonna be an undeniable fact that naim bukele's Bitcoin strategy and Michael sailors strategy on the public company level is Going to be an alternative than holding fiat currencies on their balance sheets Especially with the FASB rule changes, especially with the Bitcoin ETF around the corner there They're gonna they're trying to do whatever it takes and I believe it's politically motivated I'm not the only Bitcoin or that has said this by the way That they're you know, they're trying to slow this down But it's gonna be undeniable and they're gonna have a very hard time Debunking this that Bitcoin Itself, it's just a better money It's just better money and governments are gonna have a hard time disputing that and the reason they're gonna have a hard time Disputing that number one is because they're always going to do they're always gonna want to debase their currency They can't afford the endless wars. They can't afford sending billions of dollars to Ukraine If they didn't have the money printer, so they're gonna have a really hard time explaining that away and number two Censorship, of course, right and the control on money itself, right? A lot of the reasons that the BRIC nations have sought alternatives to the US dollar Not only because the US government is printing a ridiculous amount of money but also because they've politicized the money they've weaponized the money against their political opponents and Fine, you could you can make the argument. I'm not gonna I'm not gonna make those judgments the government of North Korea are bad Okay, and the government of Russia is bad the government of Cuba is bad. I'm not gonna get into those arguments, right? but let's talk about The vast majority of people that live in those countries that are not have nothing to do with the government They're just like you and you and me. They're just trying to get by they get caught in those sanctions they have nothing to do with it and The system that they want you to live in is if you live in a certain if you were if you happen to be born in a certain country You happen to have certain political beliefs. You are not entitled to have to open a bank account You are a danger. You're a risk. Well Bitcoin is for you Bitcoin is your money it works. So they're gonna have a hard time and this is why we call it the separation of money and state This is why we bring up the book the sovereign individuals so much because it absolutely Hit the nail on the head this what we're living through right now, but it's not only money It's also the disintermediation of information which is happening at the same time. You're seeing it with the Russell Brand stuff You're seeing it with the Tucker stuff Independent content creators are now getting more views and more traction than the legacy corporate media of which they cannot control and that freaks them out too, so After we got over this hill after we endure this this this bumpy transitionary period and if we win the race to avoid the war I Agree with Corey Clifton from swan I think that there's a bright orange future ahead of us and I've never been so pumped about it But I got to say one last thing before I bring up my legendary co -host Michael sailor Please leave some Bitcoin for the rest of us. Anyways Opti. How you doing, brother? I'm doing great man doing great. I also unplugged this weekend. It felt good I was literally joking with everyone in the spaces. I literally lived the meme. Did you guys catch the game this weekend? I unplugged completely what game did he catch? I caught all the games. I didn't do anything yesterday I literally did not a thing yesterday, but watch football Throw tomatoes all you want, but it was it's a great weekend It's good to be a big corner and then also guys mad sailor leave some Bitcoin for the rest of us she It's almost like you taking it all it's almost like you trying to buy all the Bitcoin. Yeah. No, he definitely is bro He he owns 1 % he almost owns 1 % of every Bitcoin. We're at that point. We're at that point in the movie, dude Well, I think this is the PSA where we tell everyone to stop selling your Bitcoin to Michael sailor and huddle onto them coins We're in the dark it actually I saw a good tweet before we go on Nico I saw a good tweet this weekend and it was something on the lines of like Dang, I wish I could remember but it was something like Willy. Woo is bearish Someone there is another part and then it's like and Bitcoin maxis are watching d3 football like if you can't tell that this is the deepest parts of a bear market Like are you even watching there? It was a great tweet I wish I could say it off the top of my head But as you can tell we're in the deep parts of the bear market I hope you guys are stacked and I hope you guys are getting your cash flows up and Just you know getting your body right mine, right? This is the time to get your UTXOs in order to make sure that everything is copa static as we move into a crazy Bull run. Anyways, Nico, we were gonna have a guest today But I'm kind of glad that they didn't show up because I wrote an article for once guys And I'm actually really hyped on this one so I'm gonna read it for you I'm gonna do my best guy Swan impersonation today, and I I think you guys are gonna really like this one So, I don't know it. It's got a lot of soul. It's got some spirit in it It gets me hyped up and maybe I'll give you context for it. I'll just read it and see what Nico thinks He I don't even think Nico seen this yet So I'm excited to get his response his reaction to we're gonna do a reaction video on today's simply Bitcoin Anyway, you go let's get into the show. Are we gonna get a Nico Jones take today? Are we gonna get a wild Nico John? I think so. We got something spicy for the numbers, bro. Let's jump in today. I bet The Bitcoin numbers is your Bitcoin in cold storage really secure is your seed phrase Really secure stamped seeds do -it -yourself kit has everything you need to hammer your seed words into commercial grade Titanium plates instead of just writing them on paper Don't store your generational wealth on paper papers prone to water damage fire damage You want to put your generational wealth on one of the strongest metals on planet Earth? titanium your words are actually stamped into this metal plate with this hammer and these letter stamps and once your words are in they Aren't going anywhere. No risk of the plate breaking apart and pieces falling everywhere Titanium stamped seeds will survive nearly triple the heat produced by a house fire They're also crush proof waterproof non -corrosive and time proof all things that paper is not allowing you to huddle your Bitcoin with peace of mind for The long haul stamp your seed on stamped seed. All right, everybody. I literally made it super frickin easy Don't put yourself in a situation while you lost Why you have to explain to your grandchildren while you lost your generational wealth because you stored your seed on paper store it on Titanium scan the QR code on your screen use promo code simply get 15 % off anything on the stamp seed website anyways at the time of recording The Bitcoin price is twenty six thousand three hundred and forty sats per dollar three thousand seven hundred ninety seven block height eight hundred nine thousand three hundred and three blocks to having Thirty thousand six hundred ninety seven having estimate April 21st 2024 total lightning network capacity four thousand six hundred seventy three Bitcoin Capacity value one hundred twenty three million u .s. Dollars realized monetary inflation one point seven five percent the market capitalization of Bitcoin 513 billion dollars with the B Bitcoin verse gold market cap three point nine nine percent All right, everybody so Opti said Nico Jones ran potential Nico Jones rant What what is this potential Nico Jones rant gonna be about? Well, we've talked about the you know It comes from like the political front this this this saying but I'm gonna apply it to Central bankers, I'm gonna apply to politicians Right, and there is something in the in the political Rhetoric recently and it's called the iron law of something projection, right? So we're gonna take away the political rhetoric because we believe on simply bitcoins not left versus right, right? It's a party of orange versus party of green party of central bank digital currencies nihilism poverty slavery versus a party of freedom Bitcoin Prosperity opportunity optimism, right? So that's really what it's about But I'm gonna take that rhetoric because it is very very powerful rhetoric and I'm gonna say the iron law of central bank Politicians projection never fails it never frickin fails let me introduce you to senator Mendez of New Jersey and let's take a look at what he has to say about Naeem Bukele of El Salvador We have an increasing challenging situation in El Salvador one that threatens both the future democracy in the country and bilateral relations of the United States Over the last two years president Bukele has presided over a number a number of alarming setbacks for democratic governance undermining judicial independence intimidating opposition lawmakers by using security forces to occupy the legislature negotiating political pacts with gangs regularly attacking journalists and media outlets and In addition to these actions Bukele has also repeatedly used his network of Twitter trolls to attract and to attack And threaten not only government critics within El Salvador, but also United States officials We have an increasing challenging situation in El Salvador one So this is just internalize everything everything that this guy said right, you know senator meant You know, he sounded so legitimate.
A highlight from How To Earn Free Cardano!
"If you want to stake your crypto without having to risk leaving your coins on an exchange, without having to lose custody of your coins, well, staking on Cardano has never been easier, and we're going to go through some options. Let's go ahead and discover crypto. Alright, well, first, why would you not want to keep your crypto on an exchange? Okay, within the fine print of these exchanges, if something were to go insolvent, if something were to happen, if there's sort of a bankruptcy issue, those coins are probably going to be lost forever, or at least you're going to lose a portion of them forever. And if you do get anything back, it's going to be legal proceedings, and it's going to take you years. So the phrase, not your keys, not your cheese, or not your keys, not your crypto, has never been more important. And Cardano has some novel solutions that kind of can get around this. Personally, I'm actually no stranger to this. I've lost, essentially, 2 ETH to Celsius. I don't know when I'll get it back. I don't know what I'll get back. And I guarantee, it'll probably be a fraction of what I originally lent. And you know what? At this point, just give me 50%, just give me 75 % of my ETH back, and I would be happy. And this kind of leads you to the question, what is the point of staking rewards if you're just going to end up losing your crypto? I was trying to get I think around 10 % for my ETH, maybe lost forever. What can Cardano do? Cardano actually has tons of options. You could stake on hardware wallets like a Treasure or a Ledger. You can also self -custody on web wallets like Exodus, or you could use a Cardano -based wallet like Yori, or I'm going to go over NAMI today. NAMI was founded by the same person that founded Facebuds. Facebuds was the first 10K PFP on Cardano. This guy has been building for years and years and years. I've been a big fan of his wallet. Today, we're going to be using Chrome. And, folks, you got to be very careful with Chrome extensions. So we're going to use the link from NAMI's actual wallet. I got the NAMI link from Barry's link. Barry apparently named NAMI after NAMI from One Piece. I don't know. That's for the anime fans out there. I'm not so much a fan of that, but I know this is Barry. I've been following this for years and years and years. So I'm going to use the link for the NAMI wallet here. And I'm going to use the link in the NAMI Wallet X account. That takes me to namiwallet .io. And then I feel comfortable going to the Chrome store. I typed it in into the Chrome store. There is only one. There doesn't seem to be any counterfeit apps. Guys, you always got to be careful. There could always be a fake, a phishing site. You just got to be very, very careful. Double -check your URLs. I'll lead you to the NAMI Web Store extension here. I've already have it downloaded. It looks over 200 ,000 users, about 169 rankings. So if you were to Google it and you pull it up, it only has 1 ,000 users. You know it's not the real one. So let's go ahead and go over NAMI now. After you download it, you can either create a new wallet, in which it'll give you your seed phrase, be very careful when you write it down, and then be very careful when you're storing this. Or you can go ahead and upload one of your own wallets. I already have a wallet on here. And we are already staking the Berry pool right here. You can also use this Cardano wallet to hook up to a DeFi application like a menswap. And if we go ahead and click here where it says Berry, now Berry is the staking pool. This is what I have an available reward. So I am staking my Cardano. I haven't claimed it for months. So my 562 has earned me 10 .7 Cardano. But say I want to restake the 10, I would go ahead and withdraw. So we're going to do that now. Okay, you can see the 10 .7 has hit. I now have 573 from 562. And now that is automatically going to be restaked. And then now my next reward should be slightly higher from 560 to 570. You know, maybe I get an extra, you know, 120th of a Cardano now. And the way staking rewards works, it's a little bit like a lottery system. There's a lot of different Cardano staking pool operators, all those SPOs. These SPOs all have a, you know, a random chance to be assigned some staking rewards. You might get lucky and get your staking rewards up to 6 % for an epoch. An epoch is what the Cardano uses for its basis of time for the issuing rewards. So you might get lucky, get 56 % for that epoch, or you might get unlucky, only get 1%. If you have 100 Cardano at the end of the year, expect about 3 .3 extra Cardano after 12 months. If you ever want to change who you're staking to, you can see right here, it says Barry, we're going to switch it to someone in -house. That's right. We have BJ. BJ stakes as well. He has the NES pool. We're going to go ahead and unstake here. And you'll see that I'll give you plenty of warnings here. You'll no longer receive rewards. Rewards from the two previous epoch will be lost. Full balance will be withdrawn. And then the two ADA deposit will be refunded. You have to re -register and wait 20 days to receive rewards again, okay? So I'm going to go ahead. I'm going to lose out on a month's worth of rewards basically for you so we can walk through this process. Alright, let's go ahead and confirm here. So about 30 seconds later, the delegate button is now blank, and we're going to re -delegate to a new staking pool operator. So the NAMI wallet is automatically just going to put you to the Barry pool. So we need to go to pool .pm here. So when you go to pool .pm, you'll see the little NAMI button on the top right. We're going to go ahead and click that and just go ahead and leave us. We're going to give access to pool .pm. Pool .pm is give it as the Etherscan equivalent kind of of Cardano. And now you can see it is unstaked. And so let's find ourselves a new pool operator. Back to the main page by clicking the pool .pm tab here. And then you'll see on the right, it says staking. Go ahead and click on staking. And then you're going to hit search after hitting the staking tab here. And then after that, you will see the pools right there, folks. Me, I'm looking for BJ's NES pool. Type in NES. It looks like he has the only one. Now, if there were two, I'd have to talk to him and, you know, then, hey, make sure we have the right one. See how much aid is delegated. Then we would compare the numbers. He would say, oh yeah, I have 7 .9 million ADA delegated. And then one of them would have 7 .9 million. And the other one would have like 47 ADA. So after you type in NES, go ahead and click join right here. Sign your wallet transaction. And then you just got to wait for confirmation. Now we're going to have to wait a couple epochs before we start getting rewards. BJ doesn't even know I'm doing this, so I'll surprise him in person. I'm sure he'll have a good kick out of this. He's currently in Magic Las Vegas. So you'll just wait for confirmation. It might take a while. And after that, you'll start earning rewards. It is that simple. I'm not losing custody of my Cardano. My other Cardano is still in the other stake pool. So I don't have to worry about, you know, any kind of centralization or, you know, if one entity goes down, I'm not feeling bad about it. If they don't do the right thing with their software and all of a sudden, hey, I'm not getting any rewards. No one's getting any rewards. They're like, oh, I didn't do the update. You don't have to worry about that. I feel very, very comfortable in the Berry pool. If anyone is doing the updates, it is Berry Alessandro. That's all you got to do to stake your Cardano. You don't got to worry about Celsius going under. You don't got to worry about a Terra Luna style collapse. You don't got to worry about Sam Bankman stealing your Cardano and running off to the polycule. Hope you learned something as we discover some crypto today. Let me know where you stake in your Cardano. That's all you got to do to stake your Cardano. See, let's get a low mileage lease on the twenty twenty three Jeep Grand Cherokee four by four nineteen a month for twenty seven months with five thousand five ninety nine to assign tax title license extra.

A highlight from Bitcoin Bull Market: What No Ones Telling You!
"Anytime you start making paper Bitcoin, or paper silver, or paper gold, and what do I mean by that? Futures, ETFs, stuff like that, that creates paper version. That's not actual spot, right? So anytime you do that, yes, the same money that comes in to buy it, so that they can actually short it, and they could keep it down with unlimited money and unlimited leverage, they could keep it down indefinitely, or until they scoop up as much as they want, when everyone loses interest, and then it takes off. What's up, everybody? Good morning, good afternoon, and good night wherever you're tuned in from. Welcome to another Saturday edition of the Alpha series here on Discover Crypto. My name is Kelly Kellum. Welcome to the show. If this is your first time, and I hope to guarantee that it's not going to be your last time, we've got an excellent guest lined up for you today. Mr. Jesse Olson is going to be breaking down what it means to cut the noise out of all these narratives from FUD and HOPE. Look at the chart, let the chart do the talking for you. So without any further ado, let's go ahead and dive in right to our guest. And I want to ask him a question right up front. Jesse, first off, thank you for being here, but do you think we're still going to get another bull run, bull runs like we've seen in the past, or do you think all these new institutions coming in and big money players coming into the market are going to change the dynamic of what a bull run is in Bitcoin? What's your thoughts? What's up, Kelly? Thanks for having me on. I appreciate it. And we should have some fun here. Coming from a trading standpoint, right? I'm going to come from a trading standpoint and a point of view. When I first got the first bull run, right, 2020, 2021, I was still learning. And yes, I was doing pretty good 2021, really good. But the whole time I was saying this, I was like, please give me one more bull run after this, right? Please give me one more. I'm not 100 % certain that we get another bull run like we did on the last one. And I'm not as optimistic with the big institutions coming in. And I wasn't back in 2020 and I wasn't in 2021. Because coming from options, I know that manipulation is in there because they want to make money. They have billions, if not trillions of dollars. They've had algorithms for, I don't know, 12, 15 years or longer that are probably where us retail folk are at now, right? And they have the money behind it, right? So when futures were created end of 2017, I think Bitcoin started to become more correlated. Then there's trusts like GBTC. And if there's ETFs and stuff like that, I think it will become more correlated. I think it's amazing for traders, right? I just don't think that if I'm wrong, I hope I'm wrong because I will do much better, right? I will do much better if we get a massive bull run. But if we don't, it's because it will become more of a trading thing than it will be a long -term great. I just, you know, it can't be that easy. And if it is great, we'll all be there, right? I'm trading Bitcoin. I'm trading it with leverage. I welcome that. I make way more money on a long position with leverage than I do on a short position because, A, the leverage you're gaining profit and the coin value is going up. But on the short side, the coin value isn't going up, it's going down. So I collect more coins, but the coin value isn't going up. So first and foremost, I do want another bull run and I beg for another bull run so all my snipers can participate and they can make money as well and change their lives. But I'm not certain that it's going to happen. And I would be surprised if they allow it to happen. If big companies are coming in, you know, I don't know. We'll see. It'll be interesting to see. But we'll be there if it does and we won't be surprised if it doesn't. Put it that way. Now, Jesse, I have to say how much I appreciate people that are in this space that bring a balanced view because everybody thinks it's just going to go up, up and away, especially considering the fact that we have the halving right around the corner. Do you think the halving is going to be the primary driver of if we do get a bull run? Do you think the halving really truly is going to have an impact on price action? What's your thoughts on this? I have a couple of thoughts on it. So one, I think the halving will still play a factor, right? If all things are the same, if the same, you know, if the one there's a couple of things that could hurt it. Right. So Bitcoin has never Bitcoin came out after the 2008 crash. Right. So it's never experienced a dot com bubble crash. It never experienced 2008 crash. I have. I went back to zero. I lost everything. So for me, the up only left me a long time ago. Right. Like, I know it's not up only when I thought it was up only in my mid 20s. Right. So for me, a couple of those things. I do have hope for Bitcoin. I do believe on some level they'll be able to manipulate it and suppress it. If you look at gold and silver. Right. Gold and silver should probably be $30 ,000 an ounce by now for gold. And silver should probably be $1 ,000 per ounce by now. And because of paper, silver and gold should probably suppress it. Right. So I believe those are probably should be worth a lot more. The one positive with Bitcoin is anyone can go buy spot Bitcoin much easier than silver and gold. Right. I've bought silver and gold and they deliver it to you in a weird package and it's heavy. Right. It's not easily transportable and all that stuff. So there are some positive about Bitcoin. Right. So, you know, who knows what the agendas are? I don't. That's why I stick hyper focus to the charts, because I don't know what the backroom deals are happening. I don't know the narratives. I don't know any of that stuff. I'm not a top point one percenter making those decisions. So the only thing I can do is trade the charts. But, you know, going back, if we do get this bull run, I do have some reasons why, you know, like you said, you brought up one hundred fifty thousand. I do have a couple of reasons why that I could see Bitcoin hit one hundred and ten, one twenty five and maybe even top would be like one hundred forty thousand dollars. But that's a lot of what ifs. So, you know, we will take it level by level and swing trade the heck out of it all the way all the way up in the bull run. If we get another bull run, that's kind of like the topping that I would see price it. So now I appreciate that answer. And I'd like to shift gears here for a second, because you've been trading for years, years before Bitcoin was even around. And I'd like to dive into that experience a little bit and throw it back to the beginners out there, because we do have beginners that are out there still right now. But disproportionately, as we get new bullish impulses, especially in Bitcoin or the rest of the altcoin markets, we're going to have a huge number, a huge influx of new people into the space. So what would you say if you had that? Maybe not a secret sauce, but a beginner's pack, a beginner's sort of encouragement and the need to knows and the need to uses for people that are starting from scratch. Maybe they don't have a pro trading view account. Maybe they're not buying one of our indicators of one of your indicators or some of the many paid indicators out there. There's a lot of free tools. So what would you say for beginners getting started today or at any point in the future? Where do they start? How do they dive into this? Yeah, definitely. I mean, you know, first and foremost, like before this, I would say salvage as much capital at first as possible. I feel like the faster you want to jump in to make money, the faster you are going to lose money. So it sounds generic that, you know, learn first. Right. But say you already passed, you're going down discovery road and you're trying to learn and develop your own strategy. Right. Well, if you're on trading view, for example, you can get a relative strength indicator for free. If you're on trading view, free platform, you can get the MACD indicator. I think that's the most commonly used for beginners is the MACD indicator. And just before you do anything else, just study it and study it some more and then back test it and develop a strategy based off of your back test. There's an amazing replay button on trading view that you can go back and kind of after you develop a strategy, you can easily go back and hit the replay video and see what that, you know, how that kind of plays out in the past. It doesn't mean it's going to happen in the future, but you can get an idea over time of back testing with the replay button. That's probably number one. And then paper trade. I know it's not exciting. I know I didn't do it. I jumped head head first. I would have five digit wins followed by five digit losses. And it was brutal. Right. And I've never had a six digit loss, but I've had six digit wins. But I've had five digit losses and it wasn't until the five digit losses that made me like I made five digit wins with basically hardly any strategy whatsoever. And that was probably the worst thing that could happen. The best thing that could happen is that I had the five digit win loss and it made me go back to the drawing board. It made me reevaluate my whole life. What am I doing in trading type of thing? That aha moment. And that's when I really went obsessive on the charts and developing my own strategy. I saw other people's strategies out there. And when I would back test it, I went through a phase where I back tested so many other people's strategies. I would just say, didn't work. This doesn't work for me. This doesn't work for me. And every strategy could work differently for different people, especially on different timeframes. So develop something that works for you. Find a timeframe that works for you and your lifestyle. Some of our snipers, they can't do swing trading on the daily chart. They don't have the patience for it. They're scalpers. They're day traders. So you got to know yourself too. And then at that point, as you're graduating from paper trading and back testing, the next level is maybe risk some lunch money. The amount of money you and I would go off for like a nice lunch. And if I were to buy your lunch, I don't even think twice about it. Like something that I'm not even going to lose sleep over. Then I talk about doing lunch money. Then maybe you do lunch money with leverage or blah, blah, blah, or a little bit more money with spot, right? So you got to take it in levels and kind of make it a systematic approach. And if you treat it like a business in those levels, that's when you're going to have a better chance of making it. Otherwise, if you jump straight in and you want to go 50 X leverage, no strategy, no experience, no back testing. I guarantee you blow up account. I guarantee it. One of the things I say is like, if you're, if you're trying to double down, like you were doing well, right? So a couple of things that I've talked about in coaching is that, and by the way, I don't do live coaching anymore. I have recorded coaching, but I don't do live coaching. It's just too much time and energy. But when I was doing those live coaching calls, we talked about this and we talked about that. You know, every time you win a trade, if you're treating it like a business, you pull out, for example, I pull out my personal strategies. I pull out 50 % out of that trading kill and I take it out of the digital world and then go maybe put it in the physical world or diversify in some other way. Right? So you're always taking a piece off, always taking a piece off. And one of them, one of the students is like extremely young. Right. And, uh, I, I said, Hey, what are you gonna do with your winnings? Right. He crushed it. And I was actually jealous of his trade. He, he actually nailed it on high leverage. And I'm like, I'm like, go buy your mom something nice. Right. So not only take like money off the table, but it's the whole mindset. If you're not taking money off the table on each trade, what happens is you're up. Like you were say, you know, $50 ,000, $100 ,000, $10 ,000, $1 ,000. Maybe you're brand new. You're up $1 ,000. And that's the most you've ever had. You want to flip that into $10 ,000, right? Then you want to flip that into a million dollars. And that's, and that's what you just fell into that same example you just gave you fell into that mindset. And you only can do that by learning the hard way. So what you have to do is be more systematic about it. And after a win, fighting the urge of going back in and instead of going all back in, you're, you're pulling some out and then you're, you're, you're going at the new, every trade you have to treat as brand new and instead of jumping in and out is everything lining up on the charts, just like it did the first one, you nailed the first trade. And a lot of times this happens when you're, I talk about it, you'll have like nine winning trades in a row and we're human. We're not robots. I'm not a robot. I know I'm most likely to have a bad trade after I've had nine in a row. Why? Because my confidence is so high. I've skipped steps, right? So if you skip steps because your confidence is so high, that's when you're most likely going to have your next loss. And if you forget to put, and if you make a mistake on that, you forget to put in a stop loss. You do too high of leverage. Next thing you know, you're having a major setback and a change. It sets you back not only on financially, but mentally. So be cautious. Once you are making the wins and you are winning like nine times in a row, you're going to have a loss. And usually it's because your confidence is so high, not because you're, you've been on a losing streak, right? So just want to point that out. And it was based off what you're kind of talking about. You're winning. It was the bull run. And then all of a sudden you went all in with more leverage and took a $70 ,000 loss. So you learn from your mistakes, right? Yeah. Well, I got to say, I couldn't agree more with you on all those great places to start for beginners and how utilizing a lot of those free tools that are available to you to get started, to understand the mechanisms of all these tools that you're going to be utilizing when you're doing price analysis and trying to figure out when to buy and when to sell. It's not just about looking at price action. It's about looking at those underlying data sets that can give you an edge as to when trends are going to shift.

A highlight from How the Crypto Investing Landscape Has Changed
"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. What's going on, guys? It is Sunday, September 24. And that means it's time for Long Read Sunday. Before we get into that, however, if you are enjoying The Breakdown, please go subscribe to it, give it a rating, give it a review. Or if you want to dive deeper into the conversation, come join us on the Breakers Discord. You can find a link in the show notes or go to bit .ly slash breakdown pod. Hello, friends. Welcome back to Long Read Sunday. Today we are getting into a topic that relates to maybe one of the biggest themes that we're watching right now, which is capital fun flows and the institutional engagement with the cryptosphere. Now, our piece today comes from Jeff Dorman, the CIO of ARCA, who has some really interesting insights to share about the time that he has been running his fund. The piece is called What I Learned Managing a Crypto Fund for Five Years. And because I am recording my sixth podcast of the day, I am going to enlist a little help from AI me, but I will be back as regular old NLW with some wrap up thoughts at the end. I've been running a crypto fund for one thousand eight hundred and twenty five days. ARCA just achieved a major milestone, reaching a five year track record of managing outside capital in our liquid hedge fund. Five years in any other industry may not seem like a long time frame, but in crypto, we often joke that one crypto year is equivalent to five normal years. And with twenty four seven trading hours, it's not untrue. During these past five years, I have seen many of our peers come and go, leaving a bit of survivorship bias as it pertains to crypto asset management. As chief investment officer overseeing this fund, as well as three others under the ARCA umbrellas, I experienced firsthand the evolution of this industry through good times, bad times and constant innovation. The five year anniversary provided a natural timestamp to reflect upon what I learned about managing money and about the industry. Here are five of the most important takeaways from managing a crypto portfolio for the last five years. In short, investing in these markets is very challenging. One tweak assumptions and risk models. This perhaps goes without saying to any person who has invested in this market, but this is not an easy asset class to invest in. For starters, the frequent booms and busts creates a false sense of liquidity and an often accurate depiction of expected beta and returns. All risk models, expected loss provisions and sizing parameters are based on historical data and correlations, which change incredibly quickly. There is a reason why most funds in this space are early stage venture funds, where many of these real time market related issues are not relevant. For those like ourselves who manage liquid funds, it is a constant game of tweaking assumptions and risk models to interpretation over speed. Contrary to popular belief, just because crypto markets trade 24 seven globally does not necessitate 24 seven trading coverage. Overtrading every tick is costly in any asset class, and the additional hours of crypto trading often try to lure you into more activity. But the reality is that the fragmented global investing landscape actually gives you more time to react to news and information. While there will always be bots and algorithms that react immediately to news, much like after hours equities trading post earnings, these initial knee jerk reactions are often wrong. And since one third of the world is sleeping at any given time, it often takes days for the true market reaction to play out. A correct interpretation of information is much more important than the speed with which you react. Three, careful documentation is crucial. On the flip side, the 24 seven workday does lead to difficulties not seen in traditional markets. In TradFi, even your worst day week eventually comes to an end, giving you ample time to reset and think through decisions while markets are closed without price gyrations clouding or influencing your thought process. In crypto, these natural resets often don't exist. Take the events of Terra Luna, for example. The entire unwind of a 30 billion dollar ecosystem happened within three days, with continuous trading and new information flow over the 72 hour period. We made decisions during this stretch that in retrospect would not have been made with more of a grace period. And we have since learned how to better implement risk management during a future period like this. In hospitals, mistakes don't often occur because doctors are overworked or tired, but rather because of improper handoffs to the next doctor who lacks that full set of information because the previous doctor failed to document fully. Crypto asset management requires similar knowledge, handoffs and documentation for balance between short and long. In debt and equity markets, quiet periods of time, summer holidays often lead to slow grinds higher in price. It is expensive to stay short and dividends and coupons continue to accumulate, adding more buy interest to the market. The opposite is true in digital assets, since the majority of crypto projects accrue value through network activity, slower periods of time tend to slow momentum of an asset. And since most assets have no distribution of cash flows, the cost to short is minimal. As such, negative price action tends to be more prevalent when markets are slow, leading to difficult decisions with regard to hedging and long exposure. As a result, active management continues to trump passive indexes. Rules based passive index strategies simply cannot keep pace with the innovation and changes to these markets. Similarly, these indexes can't take advantage of the volatility, which creates quite a bit of alpha. Over time, this will likely change as the market matures, but we're not there yet. Building a good team is fundamental for success and incredibly challenging. I've worked for seven different financial firms over the past 25 years. I've seen thousands of resumes and have interviewed hundreds of people. I've worked personally in just about every financial department, banking, trading, research, sales, business development. If a TradFi Wall Street firm asked me for a candidate, I could find them one pretty easily that best fits their needs. Five, hire people passionate about the industry. But what are the best attributes and qualifications for a research analyst in crypto? What makes the best trade ops person? Who is best suited to handle investor relations? These are still not easy questions to answer in crypto. During the first few years of our fund, we took what we could get, which is to say, whoever wanted a job. The pay sucked, the hours were long, and the future was very uncertain. Anyone who wanted a job in this industry in 2018 shared a true passion for blockchain success and was willing to learn any part of the job necessary to succeed. Most people who joined this industry pre -2020 are still working in this industry, and their job responsibilities evolve in real time. But in 2021, I could have handpicked any person I wanted from every major bank, brokerage, and hedge fund, who all had zero crypto experience but saw big money ahead. The resumes were pouring in. Many of these employees didn't work out. In 2023, we're back to the passionate souls who will do anything to work in this industry. Six, everyone wears multiple hats. This is a very hands -on business where research analysts have to test functionality of applications, challenge status quo financial modeling, and network live with other industry veterans at conferences. Traders have to navigate back and forth from US macro to Asian currency markets to crypto -specific on -chain wallet movements depending on the current correlation du jour. Back office employees have to test new service providers every three weeks to keep up with changing regulation, best practices, and LP demands while navigating constant bankruptcies, closures, and hack attempts. The common denominator seems to be a real willingness to test new theses. If you give 10 equity analysts the same inputs, they will give you largely the same answer and will present the same homogenous modeling techniques to arrive at this answer. If you give 10 crypto analysts and traders the same inputs, they will most likely give you 10 different answers using entirely different analyses. That's refreshing and often leads to outsized alpha, but also creates challenges when it comes to creating a repeatable formula for success. Seven, trade ops is the most important department. When I worked at credit and equity funds, the back office was overlooked. They were usually young kids eager to move into a real trading role as soon as they could. The job was basic blocking and tackling. Make sure trades settled, make sure your brokerage statement was accurate, and make sure the fund admins did their job. Compliance teams were there simply because they had to be. We all knew the rules, we obeyed them, and if there was any doubt, we checked with compliance but knew the answer would be, don't do it. We should be so lucky in crypto. Trade operations is the single most important job in crypto. You have to touch the assets every single day and a single mistake could cost the firm millions of dollars. As a result, not only do these need to be the most trustworthy people in the firm, but they need to build redundancies that can still operate even if they themselves vanish. Getting into a trade ops role is more glamorous than getting out of trade ops, and those who build their careers in this subset of the fund business end up learning the most about blockchain. Similarly, compliance is not an afterthought in crypto. Unlike in TradFi, it cannot be assumed that your employees know the rules, as most come from completely different backgrounds than Wall Street. Constant education and monitoring is a must. Further, a compliance officer can't just read the rules and assume compliance since there are few clear rules to follow, despite Gary Gensler telling us otherwise. To do your best as both a fiduciary and a law -abiding company is a Herculean effort. 8. The sell side is getting better. In traditional finance, the sell side offers a pretty valuable role. They underwrite new transactions, create novel financing ideas, advise companies on how best to participate in the capital markets, facilitate trading in existing securities, write research on new and existing securities, and pass along market color between participants. Both full -service investment banks and niche broker -dealers exist, but regardless of whether you use a one -stop shop or piecemeal the services with multiple firms, the services themselves are all covered. While the sell side is getting better in crypto, it is still incredibly fragmented and many of these services still do not exist. As a result, fund managers are often on an island, forced to manufacture its own deals, structure its own financings, and do its own research from scratch. Written research from OTC trading shops has greatly increased in volume and improved in quality, providing a necessary channel check on the state of the markets. But the trading itself continues to be very exchange -based, black box, and therefore lacks natural axes between investors. Trading color about flows and activity has improved, but there are fewer market participants to glean information from. There is still no full -service investment bank, and in fact, true investment banking services for underwriting and advisory of token launches is probably the biggest white space going forward. I'm constantly shocked at how few well -known Wall Street capital markets tools are utilized within crypto. Most token launches are doomed from the start. From low float, high fully diluted valuation, FDV token launches, to direct listings at insane prices, to poorly written tokenomics, token issuers, who are often developers and lack financial knowledge, continue to have to come to market without the assistance of those who know how to do this best, which subsequently leads to worse investment opportunities for asset managers. Some service providers are getting a lot better, like Custody Solutions, OTC Trading, and Options Liquidity. Still, others are getting worse, like fund admins and auditors, who in the wake of FTX are pulling back from these offerings. On the tech and research side, it's amazing that Bloomberg's crypto services continue to be irrelevant. The coverage list, their index, and all functionality is still from 2017 and does not take into account how much this industry has grown and evolved. Fortunately, newcomers like Nansen, Masari, Glassnode, Dune Analytics, Telegram, and others have innovated fast enough to take this corner, and we are grateful for these companies. It is entirely possible to run a crypto fund in 2023 without ever logging into a Bloomberg terminal. Overall, fund management is still challenged by the lack of sell -side tools. As the sell -side improves, so will the number and breadth of funds. 9. The investor base is getting smarter. When we began our fund five years ago, we knew the educational journey for prospective LPs would be slow. We were learning constantly as we invested and doing our best to educate interested investors in real time, but it was not practical to expect anyone who wasn't focused full -time on this industry to keep pace. Questions from prospective LPs tended to focus more on how we invest versus what we invest in, and there was definitely a bit of a leap of faith by investors. Fast forward to today and the script has completely flipped. LPs are getting much smarter about the asset class and the investment universe, thereby asking better questions. In some cases, the LPs now know more than we do as they are exposed to different areas of the industry that may not be in our everyday focus. That said, the amount of bad information that continues to flow effortlessly through the media and influencer accounts continues to reach LPs as well, often surprising us in regard to certain topics of interest that we deem irrelevant, but our investors believe are topical. As investors start to become more digital asset savvy, they want far more control over investments and specificity has increased. Asset managers in this space have launched highly specialized funds based on investor demand, including DeFi focused funds, NFT funds, etc. Many asset managers, including ARCA, have started creating funds of one inch that allow for more specificity, but provide the professional team to manage the investments. In 2018, if you asked us, we would recommend going with a professional investor, but as information is more readily available and UI UX of projects get better, we encourage retail investors to research and invest. However, to generate alpha where information asymmetry exists, it's still valuable to have professional fund managers who can take advantage of the 24 -7 news cycle, market volatility, and a murky regulatory environment. Overall, running a fund in this new and innovative space has been incredibly rewarding and we look forward to the next five years. Fund managers will continue to straddle the line between becoming more TradFi -like and adopting best practices of Wall Street, versus finding ways to take advantage of crypto -only opportunities, yield farming, airdrops, testing new applications. The most important factor for success in the digital asset space is faith in the future. We have to believe we are at the frontier of building a new financial system that has the capacity to transform society. While we fully expect bumps in the road and pushback from incumbents benefiting from the status quo, we know that as long as we continue to move forward, fight for the necessary changes, and adapt as needed, this industry will succeed. Okay guys, back to regular old non -AI NLW. The thing that stands out to me after reading that article, as trite and as cliche as it sounds, is just the how early we are theme once again. Every cycle it feels like we see it as the mass flow of new institutions into the space and to some extent it's true. We obviously got a lot more market participants from the traditional sector last time around than we had before. It feels, however, now that we're inching ever closer to a period in which those traditional actors aren't just tourists, but are long -term participants in the space. Certainly right now you have an interesting jockeying for position where the Blackrocks and Fidelities and Franklin Templeton's of the world are laying the foundation for what seems like a much more proactive end -to -end from the beginning of the cycle on through whatever happens after kind of approach. I've said before and I'll say it again that I think Blackrock's ETF application will mark a significant pivot inflection point of this cycle when we look back at it historically. I think we will see it as a firewall that stopped whatever further slide might have happened and reinforced for market participants that crypto, despite being as down as it was in every sense of the word, was going to come back. And so I think about Jeff's next five years running a fund and how different they'll look. The different participants that will make up the market. The different ways in which people will engage. It's pretty hard to imagine from where we are, but it's certainly interesting to think about. Anyways friends, that is going to do it for today's Long Read. I hope you are having a wonderful fall weekend wherever you are. Until next time, be safe and take care of each other.

"Yes, indeed, yes, indeed, yes, indeed. DJ Intense here from On The Record Podcast. I'm your host for the most. And to my left of me, I am Walt. What's up, Walt? I'm pretty good for the most part. I slept in today. I also linked up with my guy, Louis P. Shout out to Louis P. Big shout out to Louis P. Can't wait to get him on the podcast for an interview, one of these days. Definitely need that. Or just a joint venture. Yup, friend of the show. You know what I'm saying? You can, you know, we'll do an episode with them and then they can do an episode with us. That's perfect. That works. We need to do more of that, for sure. We went to go see, it was me, some other mutual friends that you're familiar with. We went to go see Expendables 4. Oh, really? Big shout out to 50 Cent, huh? Yup. No, no, no. Big shout out to Fifth. There's one thing I can say about 50 and stuff like that, regardless of all his antics, shenanigans, real life situations that made him who he is. He's always been professional in all aspects and willing to do the work and endorse whatever his he is tied to brand wise. So I respect him a lot. And, you know, inspired by a lot of his own, what he's done so far. And he's super smart. Very, very, very, very intelligent in a lot of different areas. Excuse me. I find it unique with 50 Cent or just unique in general with all these movies coming out promotional. It's terrible because the sag are still striking right now. Yeah. So it's a it's a it's a tough situation because because on one hand, you know, I just want, you know, these productions to keep putting out high quality stuff. But on the other hand, they got to be fair to their workers. Exactly. You can't just be having like, you know, like like three fourths of the pie. And in this twenty five percent is split among like 100 ,000 people. Exactly. That's that's that's ridiculous. Not at all. And we never see out of those out of those 100 ,000 people, maybe only one percent getting the top earnings. Yeah, man. The rest is fighting for scraps. Absolutely. So because you're in a you're already in a business where it's high risk, high reward on both ends. Yeah. The actor, the studios and all that stuff like that. The writers and the producers and the directors behind the scenes and the costume designers, editors. It's just so many. And we're never talking about just simple, you know, regular editing as far as script. Why about video editing? Then you have the guy, people who do the coloring for videos. It's a very, you know, strenuous process of how to actually put a movie out, the editing of the group behind it, get the color scheme right, the right focus going, the right cut scene, the right angles. Just imagine who oversees all those emails and all them up and have to check them constantly and stuff like that. It's just man. Yeah, a lot of manpower. Oh, absolutely. OK, was it a good movie? It was it was a bit it was a bit underwhelming. I think it had some really good moments and stuff like that. But listen, I get I get what you're saying. It's just like it is. I'm not I'm not asking for no Oscar worthy performance or anything like that. I don't I don't expect to get that out of those type of movies. And I'm not sure I'm not sure a movie like that would ever fit whatever fit like their criteria where you win like those big awards and stuff like that. But I will say out of out of but I will say I've seen enough action movies where I could be like, yo, it's kind of this. This could have been a lot better given given like, OK, I will say this could be a lot better given all the action movies I've seen in recent times, like like one of the one of the action movies that I like a lot. And I think it's a really good look for him is the redemption movies with Chris Hemsworth on Netflix. Who's in that? I'm the guy who played Thor. Oh, OK. Yeah. Yeah, I like those movies. He has to have two outs so far. And they've been good and stuff like that. I don't know how how much further they're going to keep on going with it. But it's just like you've seen enough action movies and you know enough about everybody's, you know, resume in that field to be like, OK, this could have been a whole lot, whole lot better and stuff like that. Wait, was Chris Hemsworth in The Expendables? No, I was just making an example of like, you know, a dude who's done action films. That's not, you know, that's a bit different what he's accustomed to do it. But it's still really good. When I look at Expendables, I think of like, oh, what was it? It was Action Bronson, Charles Bronson, those movies. It was a death, death, death wish, death, death wish, right? Back in the day, early 80s, 90s. I think I know what you might be talking about. Well, you know, it was just it's like a.

"Feeling of being lost in your twenties is that everyone on social media appears as if they know what they want and appears as if they have the perfect life but really everyone is on their own path and you know it may appear as though somebody just moved to a new city in got their dream job etcetera. But that might happen for you later in life and maybe your figuring out your relationships i or maybe your figuring out your mental health i and career might come later I actually had a reading. Wear a psychic earlier today. This was actually my birthday gift from my grandma which is very funny. She's a very eclectic woman. She is a therapist. Actually but a hippie as well and the psychic was telling me That this year is going to be great for me. Relationship wise which is definitely another area of anxiety that i wanna talk about but in terms of the In terms of the career side. She talked about like really. What's going to be important for me as experimentation in my career and so that means like trying a bunch of things out and finding a position that has humanitarian aspects creative aspects.

"I'm sure a lot of you guys feel the same way. I know. a lot of our listeners. Around are around my age. And i wanted to talk about some of the ways that i cope with things. -iety around you know. Just the uncertainty of life in your twenties and the post grad period So number one. I would say that investing in myself has really helped. Definitely starting therapy helped me so much. Because i go through phases when i just feel almost paralyzed by the anxiety around figuring out my career especially and i had a period right when i came back from filming dot was super super hard for me Just because i felt like i had had such a fun experience. And i was now entering back into the world and i felt like okay. I need to you know. Have it all out in kind of move onto the next best thing and figure out my career etc and i definitely felt a bit paralyzed by that but taking care of myself mentally has been a great help and i also think working out helps so much because they say that you know how working out consistently helps you have a more positive outlook on life and i. One hundred percent agree with that I think it's helped me so much just having that routine And having having a routine is just like so important to me because it is the reason why i'm getting up in the morning and having that certainty there you know having my morning coffee and going for my morning walk doing a thirty minute. Workout drinking water. All of those things like having that consistency really helps when i feel very uncertain in life. More generally So that's definitely helped a ton. And then also i follow wellness with self on instagram. Who if you don't follow her. You definitely shed. And she often posts these reflection prompts. That are really really helpful to me. I think reflection during your twenty s is something that has been really helpful for me Just being able to like reflect on the past month or two and that helps me create goals for the future I think partially taking it day by day. Because i get really anxious thinking like what am i going to be doing in five years ten years etc and that can kind of create more anxiety but taking time to reflect on the past year the past few months past few weeks and creating more short term girl goals just for you know the week or the month is really really helpful for me and then usually like at the end of the year. I'll do one bigger manifestation. You know and really think about like what i want for the next year but regular reflections are super helpful as well and then the third point that i wanted to bring up is about not comparing yourself to others and this is so much easier said than done but i think part of the reason why a lot of us have this anxiety and just the.

You could call them but to me. They are learning experiences. And that's you know how. I hope to look at the rest of the experiments. I'm in my twenties. I think growing up with parents that are both so accomplished and passionate about their careers has unfortunately highlighted my career anxiety. A little bit. My mom has pretty much. Her whole life been interested in fashion. She went to school at the art institute of chicago for fine art but right after school she really jumped right into fashion and has been doing it since and really found her passion early. I think my dad on the other hand definitely had a more circuitous path to success. I think He had a bit of a rockier childhood. And you know had substance abuse issues. And then he was working at magazines and new york and Only found art like later in life and has become completely obsessed with it is now a very successful art dealer and has his own gallery but i think he is an example of someone that found their passion later in life and really took the time to kind of experiment and figure it out in his twenty s but i do think having parents that are so passionate about their work has made me value career over pretty much everything. And you know since. I've been very little like middle school. I remember making plans about what my life would look like in the Trajectory of my life And i just think that like that mentality has led to a lot of anxiety around career especially and rate now. I'm i feel like there are so many options in front of me which is such a privilege but at the same time i just. I don't know what's next for me. And i can make all the excuses in the world like i think it probably is harder for me being so public in my life on social media because it's harder for me to try things and fail because i know people are watching my every move but at the same time it's just. I know that everyone feels this way And i know that you know this feeling of stuck nece coupled with an extreme level of perfectionism is what leads to stagnant and leads me to not want to experiment and eventually find my purpose. But i know that that is quite normal for people in their early and mid twenties Because in this article. That i mentioned before. It's in the guardian and link below but It says that in a study. Seventy two percent of young people in britain have experienced a quarter life crisis and thirty two point. Four percent said that they're currently having one so..

"Just because you know going back to the friends episode. Like i really felt the love and just felt so lucky to have my girlfriends in my life. So that was that was incredible. I will say But you know. I really wanted this episode to be about surviving your twenties because at this point i'm a year and a little bit in and it feels really scary. So let's just say that right off the bat so just as a little life update as well. I took a semester off of college. I go to nyu and i'm in gallatin studying fashion business. But i took a semester off to do the bachelor and so i have a few credits that i still need to make up and i will be doing those over the summer so i have two classes this summer. I'm taking a contemporary art class. Which is really cool. Because i don't listen to my dad enough. And i'm also taking a fashion class so that will be really fun but i just think like the post grad period can be so tough. I have tons of friends that you know we talk about this all the time how hard this period can be because you really want to graduate college and then hit the ground running in like really start getting your dreams together and striving towards your dream career and you know i don't have it all figured out. I don't think anyone does. But i was reading an article and In it they talked about clinical psychologist at folk and he defines the quarter life crisis period. Which happens in your twenties. Usually a little bit later. But i definitely feel it coming on now and he defines this as a period of insecurity doubt and disappointment surrounding your career relationships and financial situation so i completely feel that and i hope that you guys can kind of relate to that a little bit You know i. I don't have it figured out. And i think we're living in a time when it appears as though everyone has it together because of social media because everyone's posting their accolades compliments and they're perfect relationships in the perfect jobs and it might look like that from my social media but i definitely don't feel that way i've definitely had points in my life that other people might consider regrets or failures like the fact that i went to usc for a year and a half and then transferred. I think that that was an example of a time. When i thought you know i wanna go to. Usc i want to go to film school i wanna be director etc and i realized i didn't want to do that And i wanted to pursue fashion. And i wanted to learn more about an industry that i was raised around but didn't have any formal background in and that you know was an amazing switch up for me. I'm in a much better place with school now. And another example is you know. I started my company in college. I started doing artists collaborations. And i you know now. That project has taken a bit of a back burner. I don't know if i will pick it up again and do more or this collaborations but it's definitely slower and i'm not as invested in it as i once was so you know looking back though. I think that it's an amazing thing. Like i've been able to work with huge. Contemporary artists like richard prince and mark grow john von span. And that was a learning experience for me you know..

"Welcome back kotter creed. Thank you your. We have kirk read of the redefect in studio. We interviewed when the interview. It would have been march and it would have been right before all this craziness right before now. I think it was like they were talking about it. Yeah cancel and stuff in canceling events whispers of it. It wasn't like right. Nobody was march. And then i think everything went down like actually was won't see how some worsens so i think the week before. Just grab that mic and put rage front. Yeah yeah there we go because you kinda shook. Their up better happens all time podcasts. But so you're going to release the album. Everything got cancelled. Yeah and that'd be i remember. We talked about in march two. I mean who'd ever guess like nine months later we'd be taught you know we still being locked a insane. Twenty twenties crazy but yeah. We're supposed to release the new album. May i on at the horseshoe we would have. Cd's is all planned lake. We're hustling to finish up the mixes and mastering than everything went down and then we cancelled it and not even thought okay. Well maybe a month and then we. Obviously we'll cancel the release party. We you know what's interesting about. All this is how just to put the covert thing to bed here. Why don't i think it will undertone the whole podcast. Actually you know that. I think it might the. But i went back to and I ended up running into a on twitter running into some magic. Saying that running into some that seeing someone that i knew from high school on twitter and i went into his twitter account and i was scrolling through and he doesn't tweet a lot but back in march she put a tweet saying anybody. That's against fifteen hashtag. Fifteen days to stop the spread and hashtag latin. The curve is like an idiot or something like that. We all need to get behind this right. And i haven't heard anyone say fifty. I think we've been day three hundred fifty to stop the spread and The curve turned out to be unflappable. Or something yeah yeah no. I know it's hard to know. Exactly when are you guys going to get back into live events again on the horizon. We'll it's to tell like. I thought that we would have been fine like this past summer fall. But i mean i was wrong about that but and i'm the eternal optimist think. I'm hoping i mean now that we i was just taught chat with scott your producer. Not that we had were in the first stages of the vaccine and then the frontline workers will get the vaccine. Hopefully they'll work all the kinks out. Then i'm i'm hoping in the spring summer even if it's another year it's going to happen. We'll have to get. Who's somehow this can't go on forever. It's gonna law. On longer than i expected in many people would have expected. But i don't know i'm i'm planning to start playing live again. I'm building a new band. I have a whole new lineup. So yeah we're gonna do a and we're doing a live studio live video in a studio at the end of january zora gearing up for that but then when it comes time we're going to be ready we're going to be ahead of the game in Start hitting it hard. My hope as far as light music Is that they'll be somewhat of a resurgence of a love. For music. led music has been kind of up and down over the years in its in toronto to. It's hard to get people coming out. You know a lot of its dj dance clubs and stuff like that live music. It's i don't know it's just not as big as i think in the sixties and seventies is huge right and the people are so passionate about it was so cool then it just kinda fell is so my hope is that. There's going to be a resurgence of that. I want to capitalize on that. My friends and i are talking about the warring twenties. We want to kind of make that happen. So that's that's my hope. And that's what i'm aiming for so you know it's interesting. The is optimised being realistic. I know you know it's interesting because albums called nineteen seventy-three. It's a bit of a the name we three. Yeah there's and there's it's laced with nostalgia it. There's a lot of like some anger in it for sure. Yeah there's a especially that song Three title thrash sure sure attributed to that hero. Yeah yeah there's some anger and some of the other side. Every read effect has a little bit of anger more. I rise up struck me as a song that how was undertone with anger. Some rebellion and stuff. A for the most part resolve is kind of like a like a party song. And really i ask cooking song somewhat aggressive of fun. You know release you know venting yours than partying with your friends in the verses you talk about. Spending time in that bridge is like you know. Go against the. I gotta serve beer. It's on this summer. Yeah the moon shines pride not for a long time. It's the way he away so it's like this. Make the most of his life. It's very positive sign. There is anger there. But there's a call to ride in the. Yeah there's there's a. I mean i'm not saying it's a negative song. What i'm seeing is maybe a better word than anger is frustration. Yeah yeah. And i think i mean everyone can relate to that part of the human condition living in this world man. You're gonna have to deal with the bullshit and it's so it's it's tough to some people more than others. But everyone can kinda when you hear this you can kind of relate to is like yeah man short you kind kinda feel better. Afterwards in you can relate relate to others. That are i rated as well. Yes some frustrations sure. Yeah there's frustrations yeah. Yeah and then. I in the singing to solve the actual toned is. There will be some anger a little bit of aggression. Yeah you know. There's so many unfair things in life you know and for me There needs to be outlet for that. There needs to be some kind of platform. I think i think it's a ultimately it's a healthy platform rock and roll where you can kinda go nuts. You can't do that all the time. You can't live in that world there has to be some you know some structures in order to a certain degree but then you know the walls of life in society and everything. They can't falling down on us we are. They are down on us in in. Everyone's feeling that. I was feeling the squeeze role absolutely. Yeah absolutely. it's it's insane. So you know when i was younger. Listen to some music. That would be considered Sarah that but you know 'cause you know sometimes get pissed off. As as part of right. I i i used to. When i was younger would sometimes feed that. And i've i'm beyond that now. I don't want to negativity is not something that i know. You have to be realistic about things. but some people can kind of feed the frustration. And then you start kind of complain about things. You're kind of focusing things that you're always pissed off about then. That's not what i'm about and that's not what this album's about but it is an outlet and it is.
