So if you want the full premium experience with video, visit my YouTube channel at CryptoNewsAlerts .net. Again, that's Crypto News Alerts dot net. Welcome, everyone. Today is podcast episode number fourteen hundred and fifty. Can you believe it? I'm your host, JV, and today is November 3rd. Welcome to Moonvember of twenty twenty three. Let's kick off today's show with our market watch as we do each and every day. We got Bitcoin up about a quarter percent, hovering just under thirty five thousand. We have Ether up point three percent trading at eighteen hundred dollars. Cardano, one of the top gainers, up five and a half percent and also XRP barely in the green. And if we are in doubt, they say you need to zoom out. Let's look at the one month. Wow, that's much more sexier, isn't it? Now we have Bitcoin up twenty seven percent for the month. We got ETH up about 10 percent. Solana is up almost 70 percent. Cardano up twenty three percent. XRP up fourteen percent. BNB up seven percent. Personally, I love it when everything in crypto is a winner. It don't get no sexier than that. And look at Chainlink up fifty two percent for the month. Good lord. And check it out. Coin market cap percent in just under one point three trillion with about forty five billion in volume in the past 24 hours. Bitcoin dominance pulled back a little bit, currently at fifty two point seven percent, and the ether dominance in the 16 percentage range for the first time I have ever seen that I could recall. It's currently at sixteen point nine percent as Bitcoin dominance continues to outpace the rest of the market, especially Ethereum. And checking out the top one hundred crypto gainers of the past twenty four hours for chain up fourteen and a half percent trading at three dollars and twenty cent and Oasis Network up twelve percent trading at six point two cents, followed by the trust wallet token up almost twelve percent trading at a dollar twenty three and checking out crypto bubbles so we can see the top gainers for the past week. Massive shout out to Emilio. I appreciate the super chat. Fam, you're way too kind. Much love, much respect. He just said you are amazing. Nah, I think you're amazing. And I appreciate the orange so we can orange pill more mofos and help change the world. Let's freaking go. Much love, fam. But as we can see on the crypto bubbles on your screen, we got a lot of gainers overall. That means the market cap is pumping and a rising tide rises all ships and checking out the crypto greed and fear index. We're currently rated a sixty five in greed. Yesterday was a seventy two last week, a seventy and last month a forty nine, which is neutral. So there you have it, my fam. What's your thoughts on the current Bitcoin price action? Let me know. Are you pumped up for Moomvember? I sure as hell am. Let's dive into our Bitcoin technical analysis for the day. Check out the charts with a Bitcoin price action is likely to go next. Bitcoin broke below thirty five G's baby after the November 2nd Wall Street open, as analysis warned of overheated derivatives. As you know, derivatives are financial tools of financial destruction. Yeah, for real. Now Bitcoin under does the post fed gains. We're currently tinkering just under that thirty five thousand, which is now back at a resistance. The highs had come on the back of the encouraging language from Jay Powell, the chairman of the Federal Reserve, who in a speech suggested the interest rate hikes might soon end. Now, the Fed opted not to change the rates at the latest meeting on the Federal Open Market Committee, which was November 1st quoting their press release. Recent indicators suggest the economic activity expanded at a strong pace. In the third quarter, job gains have moderated since earlier in the year, but remain strong and the unemployment rate has remained low. Inflation remains elevated and accompanying press release stated. They also shared here that the U .S. banking system is sound and resilient. Sure it is. Tighter financial and credit conditions for households and businesses are likely to weigh on economic activity, hiring and inflation. The extent of these effects remain uncertain. The committee remains highly attentive to inflation risk. We all know they're full of ish, right, to say the least. And quoting crypto analyst, Bitcoin breaks out, reaches a new yearly high, which is currently just shy of 36 G's. Now, not a massive breakout, but as long as we say above 34 .8, which we currently are, the next target is 36 .5 to 37 ,000. And the altcoins will follow after, which is typically what seems to go down. Now, down over a thousand from its highs. Bitcoin was worrying some with derivative markets, particularly in the focus, quoting Charles Edwards at Capriole Investments. All Bitcoin derivatives markets are overheated at present. This captures the perps, futures and options. Stay safe out there. And also, we have reacting popular trader school agreed that arguing it was now the spot market to charge of saving the Bitcoin price strength, as he shares here, something to be aware of when sizing up positions currently, when derivatives get hot. This puts increasing focus on spot market to support the current prices and the trend. That's right. In his own analysis, we also had material indicators concluding caution should be applied to the current Bitcoin trading environment, meaning expect more volatility ahead and uploading the snapshot of liquidity on the Bitcoin order book for the largest global exchange, Binance. It warned support levels were apt to disappear quickly. A form of a rug pull. So you have been warned. Newcomer support gaining liquidity at this time lay at both 34 and 33 .5. So there you have it, fam. Again, how many of you are currently bullish on that? King crypto. And with that being shared, now let's discuss our next story of the day. The latest from Michael Saylor. He was recently interviewed on the news and shared some very positive sentiment in the Bitcoin market. Also, he has been a dollar cost averaging and stacking stats. This week, the Bitcoin price came within a hair of thirty six. I think we hit like thirty five nine ninety during our watch party before abruptly reversing and correcting to thirty four to fifty. But after nearly a 30 percent run over the past month, it is natural for the price to cool off as some traders take profit and market participants evaluate whether or not the catalyst for the rally remain valid. Now, despite the intraday price action, which saw almost five percent drawdown, a number of analysts remain bullish on Bitcoin naturally, and some expect another gamma squeeze. If the Bitcoin price manages to push through the thirty six three hundred level, we're only like four hundred dollars off of that right now. Just FYI, permables like MicroStrategy CEO Michael Saylor appear unbothered by the whipsaw price action. And on November 1st, MicroStrategy announced the October purchase of one hundred and fifty five more Bitcoin for five point three million. As the outlines here in October, MicroStrategy acquired additional one hundred and fifty five BTC for five point three million bucks, now holding one hundred and fifty eight thousand four hundred BTC like, whoa, and what's the most mind boggling? Saylor didn't even get into Bitcoin until twenty twenty. So it goes to show you someone can come here in twenty twenty three and become an even bigger whale than Michael Saylor. In fact, the likes of the Black Rocks of the world put Michael Saylor to shame because we're talking about mega mega mega whales on a massive scale. And when asked about the upcoming Bitcoin having during an interview on Squawk Box, here's what he had to share. Most of the natural sellers of Bitcoin in the market right now are Bitcoin miners and they have to sell to cover their electricity bills and capital costs and retire their debt. That's about a billion dollars per month worth of selling into the market. The protocol forces that to be cut in half as of next April or late April. And he also says, so you're going to see twelve billion bucks of natural selling per year converted to six billion of natural selling a year and at the same time as things like the spot ETFs increase the demand for Bitcoin. So that's why all of us are fairly bullish over the next 12 months. How many of you are bullish? Let me know. Demand is going to increase and supply is going to contract. And this is fairly unprecedented in the history of Wall Street. That's what's up now is a pretty ideal entry point for Bitcoin, according to Saylor. Also, he was recently interviewed and I actually transcribed this video clip when he was speaking on Squawk on the street. And I feel this is very relevant. Here's what Saylor says for the industry to move to the next level. We need to migrate to adult supervision. We're going to need the big banks to become the crypto custodians. We're going to need Wall Street to take a role and we need to rationalize away from the one hundred thousand crypto tokens. You know, the yo yo coins that people are manipulating to Bitcoin. Bitcoin is an asset without an issuer. It is the one universally recognized protocol that is a commodity in the space. And so when banks on Wall Street and responsible custodians are managing Bitcoin and the industry takes its eyes away from all the shiny little tokens that have distracted and demolish shareholder value, I think the industry moves to the next level and we 10x from here. Now, what's another 10x from the current price action we're talking about roughly? What is that? Three hundred and fifty thousand dollars per BTC. Send it and let's frickin go. Also quoting him here, I think the liabilities or the early crypto cowboys, the crypto tokens, which are unregistered securities, the unreliable crypto custodians for the industry to move to the next level. We're going to need to migrate to adult super vision. And I shared with you the rest of that quote. So there you have it. Let me know if you agree or disagree with the one and only giga Chad Michael Saylor. Next story of the day. This is breaking news. SBF has been found guilty in all seven fraudulent charges. Yeah, this is wild. Yeah, here we go. I'm going to read all this to you. Former FTX CEO Sam Bankman Freed was found guilty of all seven charges by a jury in his criminal trial in New York after about four hours of deliberations, meaning it didn't take long. Bankman Freed was found guilty of two counts of wire fraud, two counts of wire fraud conspiracy, one count of securities fraud, one count of commodities fraud conspiracy and one count of money laundering conspiracy. Good Lord. That's a lot of charges and it's just getting started. He'll be back in court in March to continue with some more charges to probably get guilty of. We'll return to the court for sentences by New York District Judge Lewis Kaplan March 28th. So that's the date is right before the having. Government prosecutors will recommend a sentence, but Judge Kaplan will have the final say. Now, Bankman Freed's crimes each carry a maximum sentence of between five and 20 years in prison with the wire fraud, wire fraud conspiracy and money laundering conspiracy carrying a maximum of 20 years sentence in a press conference outside the court, the New York Southern District U .S. Attorney Damian Williams called Bankman Freed's crimes a multibillion dollar scheme designed to make him the king of crypto, right? The Michael Jordan of crypto, the Warren Buffett of crypto and of one the biggest financial frauds in American history, Bankman Freed's attorney Mark Cohen said in a statement, we respect the jury's decision, but we are very disappointed with the result. Naturally, Mr. Bankman Freed maintains his innocence and will continue to vigorously fight the charges against him. Anyone here in the chat. We have over 200 people in the live. Anyone believe he is innocent? I am just curious if there's any outliers out there. Anyways, other key FTF execs, including former Alameda CEO Caroline Ellison, FTX co -founder Gary Wang and former engineering head Nishad Singh have all pleaded guilty to various charges and work with the government to testify against Bankman Freed in the five week trial. Now, Bankman Freed had pleaded not guilty to all the charges. And during his trial, he took the stand to maintain his innocence against the best wishes of his lawyers who told him to shut the what up, just saying, and marking the FTX November 2022 collapse as a number of big mistakes I made. He denied any wrongdoing in the FTX relationship with Alameda, attempting to distance himself from key decisions, which we all know is not true, according to the testimonies of their execs, Bankman Freed pinned the blame on Gary Wang for creating a function that allowed Alameda to trade funds on FTX that it didn't have and claimed he wasn't entirely sure what happened. Oh, I don't know what happened with Alameda's line of credit, which ballooned to billions in the collapsing crypto market of 2022. In his testimony, he also blamed Caroline Ellison for not focusing on risk management. How are you going to blame your ex? That's just why. Anyways, he didn't believe he defrauded FTX customers by taking over eight billion worth of their funds. Instead, he framed it as Alameda just borrowing from the exchange. Yeah, borrowing from investors without their permission is called stealing. I just wanted to point that one out. Now, Max Kaiser responded to this attorney who spoke out and he said, this is tough talk when it comes to the minor league, the drug Adderall ish coiner like SPF, but where's all the bravado when Jamie, the tapeworm diamond, the best the CEO, JP Morgan Chase, gets caught manipulating markets and defrauding the public again or the next crooked Warren Buffett bailout? You talk a good game, but you're no different than SPF. And I think Max makes some excellent points. The big dogs get away with this all the time, of course, but clearly there's levels to this ish, if you know what I mean. Now, what are your thoughts surrounding this case? How do you think this will likely continue to play out in March as they continue with the court trial facing more charges he's up against? Let me know, fam. I appreciate that. I got some very bullish predictions to share with you. In fact, I'm going to be sharing with you the top five Bitcoin price predictions for twenty, twenty four and beyond. Bitcoin continues to circle its highest levels in 18 months. Again, the annual high for the year is currently almost thirty six thousand dollars, but let's dive right into the predictions. First and foremost, Matrix Port predicts forty five thousand within two months. So two months from November would mean January. I could definitely see Bitcoin hitting forty, fifty thousand easy peasy before the halving. But let me know your thoughts. Now, that prediction came from Matrix Port, the crypto trading firm founded by Jihan Wu, himself a founder, a Bitcoin mining giant Bitmain in a blog post in late October. Matrix Port doubled down on a forty five thousand year end price targets. That's the Christmas target. Let's go, Santa, which is initially revealed in January. It was based on a handful of in -house models with Matrix Port also successfully predicting Bitcoin's October gains. Quitting them here, Bitcoin is breaking above the July thirty one five resistance showing that forty five is achievable by the year's end. And again, I think that's a very doable target. But let me know your thoughts. The next prediction comes from Bitcoin. They say new all time high pre halving. I also agree with that, especially if we get the ETF approval. I would anticipate above and beyond sixty nine thousand before the April twenty twenty four halving, but that's only if you know what I mean. We'll see how this plays out. The halving is a watershed moment. We all know the blocks of subsidies get cut in half for the miners in September. Bitcoin stated Bitcoin would surpass its current sixty nine thousand peak before April of twenty twenty four. Now they shared here, no, Bitcoin is not going to top before the halving. Yes, it's going to reach a new all time high before the halving. No, Bitcoin is not going to one hundred and sixty G's because the magnitude of every pullback is large. This means it'll peak after the halving in twenty twenty four. And yes, the target price is around two hundred and fifty thousand dollars. I love that. That's right in alignment with Max Keiser's short term target of two hundred and twenty thousand. Now, they also shared this chart. Both the all time high and the post halving two hundred and fifty thousand target came courtesy of the Elliott Wave theory charting, which we cover commonly here in the show with Bitcoin mimicking the behavior from the previous cycles. And you can see their estimation of how the Bitcoin price is likely to rise is coming directly from Bitcoin. Now, Bitcoin did, however, make room for a total of four pullbacks. As outlined in this chart, you can see one, two, three, four. Before we hit the peak at five, quoting them here, there will be one pullback before breaking to a new all time high, followed by another pullback at around one hundred and twenty five thousand. Additionally, there will be two more pullbacks after the halving, which are not demonstrated here. Now for the next one, three Bitcoin price models, one hundred and thirty thousand dollar target zone. That's right. Let's freaking go. Quoting CryptoCon here, I'm prepared for the lower prices, but the stars are aligning at one hundred and thirty for the Bitcoin this cycle. And the concept also hinges on the halving events and the next peak should come around four years after the sixty nine thousand dollar move in November of twenty twenty one. We all know everything is cyclical and Bitcoin every four years driven by the halving. Now the one million dollar question. How about a one million dollar Bitcoin price target leads us to Kathy Wood of ARK Invest, the CEO and chief investment officer, has joined former BitMEX CEO Arthur Hayes in doubling down on her seven figure price prediction when this could happen, understandably up for debate. But changing macroeconomic tides have emboldened what remains a daring Bitcoin price prediction. In October, Hayes maintained that the path to a one million dollar coin was in full effect thanks to the macro reality. Now quoting BlockWorks on the Margin podcast right here, this was shared actually on an interview. If people lose faith in the bond market and this fiat artificial construction we have created over the past 80 to 100 years, this global economy and how it has been structured, if we lose confidence in that, then the amount of money that's going to be looking for an alternative is going to be something that we have never seen before. He shared over in an interview and speaking of Kathy Wood, she was just on Bloomberg and here's what she shared when she was asked, what's a better hedge against inflation? Is it Bitcoin or is it gold? And very boldly she said, Bitcoin hands down, hands down is a hedge against both inflation and deflation. Yes, so is gold, but Bitcoin is digital. And if you look at the incremental demand we are going to see, but gold already has its demand. You know, it happened already, right? Bitcoin is new and institutions are barely involved in the young people would much rather prefer to hold Bitcoin than hold gold preach. So it's interesting that both gold and Bitcoin are hedges against deflation, but Bitcoin has been doing better recently preach and Bitcoin naturally will consider outpacing gold. I think it was Max Kaiser who said for every dollar, the Bitcoin price action increases. I'm sorry for every dollar, the gold price increases expect Bitcoin to go up by over $20 meaning it will continue to outpace gold by a factor of 20. Let me know if you agree or disagree fam. And we spoke about Kathy Wood and her a $1 million price prediction. In fact, she even has a bullish case scenario by the year 2030 of Bitcoin hitting $1 .48 million. Keep that in mind. But now let's discuss Arthur Hayes, the BitMEX founder predicting Bitcoin price to rally 2700 % taken us to $1 million per coin. And then we'll dive into the latest updates with the likelihood of the spot Bitcoin ETF being approved this month in November. According to the major asset manager, here we go. BitMEX co -founder Arthur Hayes is doubling down on a prediction. The Bitcoin is destined to reach the seven figure price. Hayes says that a monetary policy tool known as the yield curve control will act as the catalyst for Bitcoin to reach that 1 million Mark, a gain of around 2 ,700 % from the current level. Send it, let's go. Central banks use the yield curve control to influence the longterm interest rate level by buying longterm bonds as much as possible to prevent the rate from rising above the intended target. And according to Hayes, the entire U S government is enabling a loose monetary policy environment. Even as the fed continues tightening. Now the BitMEX founder first predicted seven figure Bitcoin earlier this year in March in that essay, which I covered here on the show. And at the time, he argued that China's loosening of his monetary policy would trigger Bitcoin to explode to $1 million per coin. Hayes also says the decision by the fed mid this week, uh, pause the rate hike interest rate suggests it's time to pump it up, pump, pump it up. And according to the BitMEX founder, the feds decision would trigger other central banks to also ease their monetary policy. Quoting him here over to you, BTC, let's go. I shall increase the pace of my rotation out of treasury bills and into Bitcoin and ish coins. Now that the fed had paused over two meetings, every other central bank has cover to print expect massive stimulus coming from China, Europe and Japan. So there you have it coming directly from crypto Hayes. Just blaze. Let's get it now for the moment you have all been waiting for. Let's dive into our featured story of the day and discuss a Bitcoin ETF being approved this month in November. And what would that mean for the crypto market? Let's break this baby down. We have Steven McClurg, the chief investment officer at Valkyrie investments has put forth a strong indication that a landmark approval from the U S SCC for a spot Bitcoin ETF can transpire by the month's end. Send it and let's go. The approval of the spot ETF is currently one of the biggest factors influencing the Bitcoin price as well as the entire crypto markets trajectory. You can say that again now alongside the financial giants such as black rock, the world's largest asset manager fidelity, which is about half the size of black rock. We got Vanek, we got Invesco, we got Valkyrie, one of the companies at the forefront of the battle with the SCC over the spot ETF. We also have grayscale. Don't forget the GBTC product. We have the firm managing to Bitcoin related ETFs at the moment. Now Valkyrie Bitcoin and ether strategy ETF and the Valkyrie Bitcoin miners ETF with a combined asset value of 51 .1 million at this time. And they also have active filings for spot Bitcoin ETF. Now McClurg, citing the latest amendments to Valkyrie spot, Bitcoin ETF app anticipates the SCC will issue another series of comments within the next weeks, potentially setting the stage for the approval of the 19 before rule changes by the end of the month. Send it quitting him here before anything else happens, we get a second round of comments and I believe we'll probably get those comments in the next one to three weeks. A late November approval likely means a February launch. So note that if we get the green light in November, it means the Bitcoin ETF would likely launch a few months later in February, which would be right in time again for the Bitcoin having. Now he also shared with ETF .com this interview suggesting a timeline for the SCCs response to these crucial amendments. He also argues the SCC can wait until January to ask the applicants to put the final touches on their S one filings. That's the other alternative scenario. Now Nate Geraci, host of the ETF prime pod explain that Valkyrie CIO suggests SCC can approve the 19 B fours exchange rule changes for the spot Bitcoin ETFs by the end of November and then the S one registration statements early next year. These don't have to be approved at the same time, so keep that in mind. Though they need both for the ETFs to begin trading. Now in recent weeks, the SCC has been actively communicating with ETF apps and disclose that the agency is carefully scrutinizing all spot Bitcoin ETF apps. The focal points of the SCCs inquiry have pertained to the comprehensive explanation of various risk disclosures, methodologies concerning index usage and net asset value computations, environmental risk inclusions, as well as detailed insights into custodial practices. Recent amendments to filings by entities such as BlackRock and VanEck have been augmented to eludicate how initial fun seating could be conducted and also note that BlackRock already began seeding their ETF back in October, which was last month. This is something that Larry Fink their CEO has already disclosed. Now because of that, industry experts remain cautiously optimistic. We have Matt Hogan, the CIO of bitwise asset management, highlighting lingering concerns, quitting him here. Market manipulation is still a potential stumbling block. Custody isn't a wrap, so there is still a lot of work to do, he stated. Now the anticipation isn't purely speculative. The man forecast suggests substantial interest. McClurg envisions about 10 billion bucks flowing into these products within the first one to two months post launch. While bitwise projects 50 billion in inflows within the first five years. I think that's extremely conservative. I could see trillions of inflows within five years, but hey, to each their own. Valkyrie revised its spot Bitcoin ETF filing October 30th a few days ago with an S1 registration statement submitted to the SCC outlining the Valkyrie ETF. The proposed fund shares are intended to be listed under the ticker BRRR on the NASDAQ stock exchange. Valkyrie updated their app and a part of a wider trend as several firms have similarly refiled their spot ETF apps signaling a concerted effort toward regulatory compliance and optimism for approval. Bloomberg ETF analyst, James Saferard identified these amendments as positive signals for progress and possible imminent approvals. Let me know which you think will get the green light first from the SCC. We all know it's imminent. We all know it's going to happen, but when is it going to be November? Is it going to be December? Could it be January? Could it be March? Let me know in the live poll we have on the screen. I have some bonus content to share with you before we dive into the live Q and A. This is from jury and Timur. Why is this so relevant? He is the head of macro at fidelity fidelity being a four and a half trillion dollar asset manager. He's the one who predicted a billion dollar Bitcoin price by the year 2038 and here's something he just recently shared. He shares some incredible threads I want to share with you. Bitcoin is volatile, but it's scarcity and adoption curve create the potential for it to be a high powered hedge against monetary shenanigans. I think of it as exponential gold and in this chart it shows you Bitcoin going past $1 .2 million per coin. That's pretty sexy. Gets me excited as he shares here. One of the attributes of Bitcoin is that it's a network asset and as such it's adoption curve has followed the typical S curve shape. We have seen many of the S curves throughout history and he continues here in the thread. The question, where is Bitcoin's journey along that S curve? A network assets value is driven by its adoption curve, so the slope of that curve matters a lot. Makes a good point. And when I first went down this rabbit hole in late 2020 it's adoption curve, which I defined as the number of non -zero addresses was very steep. It resembled the S curve for mobile phones during the 1980s and the 1990s, which was pretty promising. I'm going to read you a few more now. However, as the real rate narrative changed from dovish in 2020 to hawkish in 2022, the adoption curve flattened and it is now closer to the slope of the internet adoption curve from the two thousands and it has not made much progress since 2021. Now we also had some other threads which are very valuable. I'm just going to read the lead part of it with Bitcoin moving up. Once again, will its adoption curve accelerate as it did a few years ago and how does the macro trend on rates affect it? There's some very insightful data. If you want this, check the show notes below the video in the description. I'll include all of this. And he had one more good thread continuing the discussion from the recent thread on Bitcoin. I highly recommend you check this out because again, this is the head of macro over at Fidelity, one of the world's largest asset managers. So there you have it, my crypto fam and don't forget to check out cryptonewsalerts .net for the full premium experience with video and to participate in our live Q and a, and I look forward to seeing you on tomorrow's episode.

We also have ether barely in the green, a little bit of boring trading sideways action. But if we check out, you know what they say, when in doubt, zoom out. Right. Let's check out the seven day coin 360. Bitcoin's now up four percent. You got XRP up nine percent. Let's zoom out a little more and check out the one month price gains. Let's freaking go. This is a testament that October in full effect, Bitcoin is up almost twenty eight percent this month. Let's freaking go. That's pretty massive. And let's not forget, we're moving into moonvember tomorrow. So do you think we're going to surpass forty thousand? I think so. In fact, if I was a betting man, I'd bet on it. Now, if we zoom out, can we even zoom out a little more? Let's see here. Well, let's switch it up. Let's go to coin market cap dot com. We can see the crypto market cap currently sits at one point two eight trillion with Bitcoin dominance at fifty two point eight percent and the ether dominance at seventeen point one percent and checking out the top one hundred crypto gainers within the top or in the past twenty four hours. We got Celestia, which I've never even heard of before. Up sixteen percent. We got XDC up six percent trading at five cents, followed by TonCoin up five percent trading at five dollars and thirty three cents and checking out crypto bubbles. We can see the top gainers for the past week. We have a mixture. Some are in the red, some are in the green. And let's zoom out. Let's check out the weekly massive gains in the green. Let's check out the monthly. Wow. Incredible. Some of these alt coins are up 50, 60, 70 percent, which is pure insanity. E -Hacks is up one hundred and forty five percent. What about the annual? Holy moly. And let's check out the market cap plus the week and we can see Bitcoin and a big bubble at three point three percent, followed by ether at two point nine percent and checking out the crypto greed and fear index. We're currently rated at sixty six, which is greed. Yesterday, a sixty eight. Last week is sixty six and last month a forty eight, which is neutral. So there you have it, fam. Yeah. So let's kick it off with our Bitcoin technical analysis. Check out the charts with the Bitcoin price action is likely to go next. Here we go. Bitcoin's price trying to push towards the coveted thirty five thousand level. The current high for the year is thirty five thousand two hundred, but has so far been unable to progress. The rest of the crypto market seems to continue with its consolidation, with some of the alts performing better than others. So let's start with Bitcoin here. The Bitcoin price was trading above thirty four G's and seemingly pushing for the thirty five level. And right now we're right in between those two marks. Today, the price remains above thirty four, roughly thirty four five at the time of the live, but is unable to reach the coveted resistance level and is currently at a loss, but barely. We're, you know, kind of tinkering. And liquidation data is also interesting to monitor. According to Coin Glass, the total liquidations for the past twenty four hours are just short of one hundred million bucks. Most of these were long positions accounting for sixty three percent of the total. This shows that the bears were more dominant over the period. Now, the majority of the liquidations, as always, happened on Binance, which is the largest crypto exchange in the world, followed by OKEx and Bybit. And I'm curious, what's your go to recommended crypto exchange? Do you use Binance? Do you use OKEx? Do you use Bybit? Do you use Coinbase? Do you use Kraken? Let me know, fam. And let's now check out some of the technicals specifically for Bitcoin. Right now, as you can see, the oscillators on the left, we have three cell signals. We have seven neutral and one buy signal. And that one buy signal is the MACD, which you can see here on your screen. Now, if we scroll to the right a little bit, we can see for the summary, there's currently eight neutral signals. There's four cell signals and 14 buy signals, which is definitely a bullish indicator. And for the moving averages, which may be cut off on your screen, but I can read it to you. It shows you sell signals, only one neutral, only one. And we have freakin 13 buy signals right now. The market is ripe and ready for continuation of some momentum. So let's freakin go. Now, let's break down our next story of the day and discuss some technicals, which are definitely bullish for Bitcoin. As you can see here, there are now nearly 40 million addresses in profit. If you're one of those 40 million Bitcoin addresses in profit, make some noise in that live chat and let's freakin celebrate. I mean, that's a massive victory, to say the least. Bitcoin has more wallet addresses and profit than ever before. Despite Bitcoin's price being 50 percent below the all time highs. That's right. Right now, you can buy Bitcoin two for one special, but it's not going to last for long. So seize the moment, fam. The latest data is from on chain analytics from Glassnode showing a record number of addresses in the black. Bitcoin may be nearing 18 month highs, but its recent gains were already enough to spark the significant changes in investor profitability. Shout out to relaxing and meditation music. I the appreciate ten dollar super chat. Much love, much respect. Keep it coming. Let's go. Per Glassnode data, the number of addresses in profit as of October 30th was thirty nine point one million. This is the highest number ever recorded for the Bitcoin users and beats the previous peak of thirty eight point one million seen back in November of twenty twenty one. And does this date ring a bell? That's at the time we hit the all time high of sixty nine thousand. Now, at the time, Bitcoin itself traded at those all time highs and thus 100 percent of the addresses in existence with a non -zero balance were obviously in profit. And while the current spot price remains 50 percent lower than those levels, the total non -zero addresses now number forty eight point three million, as you can see here in this chart. And it's just likely to continue soaring and rising. Bitcoiners taking over the world. Yeah, I mean, in percentage terms and profit addresses, they have yet to match their performance in absolute numbers, but nonetheless, at 18 month highs of eighty one point one percent. Let's go. The tally has gone from 60 percent to over 80 percent over the past two months, as Glassnode shares here in the chart. And by contrast, addresses at a loss currently stand at just over nine million at their peak in December of twenty twenty two. Following the FTX meltdown, the total was over 20 million. Now, as reported, the past week has seen the Bitcoin price action pass multiple resistance levels while returning both the long term and short term hodlers back to profit. This in turn sparked profit taken at the much more speculative end of the hodler spectrum, especially as the market passed thirty four G's. Now for crypto analyst Van Stratton, research and data analyst at Crypto Insights Crypto Slate. This underscores the difference in mentality between the cohorts, quoting him here. Bitcoin has shown remarkable strength above thirty four thousand for the past five days while witnessing one of the strongest profit takings in the past two years for the short term hodlers. Now, long term hodlers have barely budged the six largest profit taking this year, but minimal in the grand scheme of things and accompanying the charts from Glassnode tracked these inflows to the exchanges from the long term hodlers and in profit to the short term entities as outlined here in these charts. Now, let's break down the 15 year birthday, the 15 year anniversary of Bitcoin. I mean, this is phenomenal that Bitcoin has been in existence for 15 years. Imagine if you would have knew about Bitcoin back on October 31st, 2008. Talk about a small circle. But yeah, today marks 15 years since the synonymous creator of Bitcoin, the one and only Satoshi Nakamoto, who Alex Jones claims Max Kaiser is maybe because Max holds as much Bitcoin as Satoshi. Who knows? But anyways, shared the Bitcoin white paper to the mailing list of cryptographers on October 31st, 2008. This was after the financial collapse, fam, and a date also annually celebrated as Halloween, quoting the the white paper here. I have been working on a new electronic cash system that is fully peer to peer with no trusted third party, as Satoshi famously said in the opening sentence before linking the document titled Bitcoin, a peer to peer electronic cash system. Holy moly. I mean, again, this is legendary. This is history in the making. You're witnessing firsthand the white paper proposed the decentralized system that could facilitate peer to peer transactions, which can solve the double spending problem often associated with digital currency in which it did. It proposed to achieve this via a network of nodes, validate and record transactions through the proof of work consensus mechanism, launching just two months later, officially on January 3rd, 2009. Satoshi's computer science breakthrough came on the back of other impressive developments in the cryptography and e -money spaces. The first reference cited the Bitcoin white paper is Wade's invention of B money, an electronic peer to peer cash system that never launched, but nonetheless played a key role in Satoshi's plans for Bitcoin and like Bitcoin B money. And I'm curious how many of you have ever heard of B money? We have all heard of B rabbit from 8 Mile, but B money, I've never heard of that one, proposed that participants in the system maintain a database of account balances, which keep track of the ownership of money. Transactions would be initiated and completed by a broadcast message to all participants, which would update the account balances of those involved in a specific transaction. In many ways, it could be seen as a precursor to the nose of the Bitcoin protocol, which keeps a record of the constantly growing blockchain. And I'm curious, how many of you run your own Bitcoin node? Let me know in that live chat. Fam, this process requires proof of work, a form of cryptographic proof in which one party proves to others that a certain amount of the specific computational effort has been expanded. Now, Satoshi implemented this into Bitcoin, citing Adam Back's invention of hash cash in 1997. Shout out to Adam Back, the creator of, I believe it's Blockstream, now, which incorporated proof of work to limit the email spam of denial of service attacks, as shared here by Crypto Leroy, the cypherpunks and fathers of Bitcoin, Hal Finney, he created the reusable proof of work. We got Adam Back, who created hash cash, Wei Dai, who created B money, David Shum, who created DigiCash. We have Nick Szabo, who created BitGold, Phil Zimmerman, who created PGP, Bram Cohen, who created BitTorrent, and Tim May, who is the crypto Antichrist Manifesto, and of course, the one and only Satoshi Nakamoto, who gets credited for the discovery of Bitcoin. Now, Bitcoin's timestamp server works by taking a hash akin to a unique serial number, a block transactions and time stamping, and when the block is added to the Bitcoin blockchain, which we all know. And as Crypto Shama points out here, also giving credit to everyone involved with some of the early developments for the technology that led to Bitcoin. So shout out to all of them, including Max Keiser. If you didn't know, Max Keiser has a patent, I believe the first one for digital currency back in the 90s. That's all on record, fam. So this is pretty amazing. Now, the genius in Satoshi was the puzzling of these pieces into a fully functional system. According to Lop, quoting him here, there is no single piece of the puzzle that I think is more important than the others. Nakamoto's genius was not any of the individual components of Bitcoin, but rather the intricate way in which they fit together and breathe life into the system. Preach. Now, mainstream media highlighted Bitcoin's increased use by criminals, which we know is nothing more than FUD. We got Senator Elizabeth Warren, also Cynthia Lummis pushing those FUD narratives, which suck. We also know Bitcoin became a legal tender in El Salvador, which was the country to adopt Bitcoin as a legal tender, which has been a game changer for their entire country. And I feel we're going to have many other nations lead in the footsteps of Bukele as well as, you know, El Salvador in adopting Bitcoin as a legal tender. So, yeah. Happy birthday, Bitcoin. I'm wishing you another successful hundred and fifty years after these 15 years. You know, the final Bitcoin is not going to be mine, I believe, until the year 2140. Crack me if I'm wrong, but that's a very long time from now. Now, let's break down our next story of the day. Valkyrie updated their ETF filing. We all know right now all eyes on spot ETF. So let's break down this latest development. Digital asset manager Valkyrie Investments, the latest firm to amend its spot Bitcoin ETF filing with the US SEC Valkyrie filed the updated spot Bitcoin ETF with the US SEC October 30th, which is yesterday, according to the SEC database. Now check it. The updated form as one registration statement from Valkyrie Bitcoin Fund aims to offer investors the opportunity to invest in common shares backed by Bitcoin. The shares represent units of fractional, undivided beneficial interest and ownership of the trust and are expected to be traded under the ticker symbol BRRR, just like money printer continue to go kind of cool on the Nasdaq stock market, quoting them here. The information in this prospectus is not complete and may be changed, according to Valkyrie, stating in the filing, adding the firm is not allowed to sell BRRR securities until the registration statement is officially effective. The amended filing comes about a month after the SEC delayed its decision on the Valkyrie Bitcoin Fund in late September. Meanwhile, Valkyrie's updated spot Bitcoin ETF joins at least six others recently amended spot Bitcoin ETF filings made by the following Bitwise, BlackRock, Fidelity, Grayscale, VanEck and ARK Invest. And according to online crypto ETF analysts, the ongoing Bitcoin ETF amendments can be translated as a good sign, definitely a good omen, in my opinion, of the progress and impending approvals. Valkyrie's latest spot Bitcoin ETF update is yet another evidence of movement happening behind the scenes. Bloomberg ETF analyst James Safart believes, quoting him here from X Update, Valkyrie joins the prospectus amendment train for the spot Bitcoin ETF. Things are still moving behind the scenes and following the recent amendments, at least five of the rest of the known spot Bitcoin ETF filers have not updated their filing. So expect them soon, including firms like Wisdom Tree, Invesco, Galaxy, Global X, Hashdex and Franklin Templeton. The SEC currently has a whopping eight to 10 filings at the desk of the chairman, Gary Gensler. But the million dollar question becomes, will Gary Gensler do anything about this and accept any of these spot Bitcoin ETFs? Congress is putting the pressure on Gary. He says you need to prove the spot Bitcoin ETFs immediately, with that key word being immediately. There's some deadlines that are due soon, including ARK 21. I believe it's January 10th. I personally feel we're going to get the green light from the SEC before the Bitcoin having creating the perfect storm. Let's move on to our next story of the day. We covered the ETF filing. Now let's discuss a potential $50 ,000 Bitcoin rally here incoming, according to crypto analysts, Michal Benday Pop, before I break down the latest with Max Kaiser recently on the Alex Jones show. Here we go. A widely followed crypto analyst believes Bitcoin has officially entered the bull market territory and is now primed for a rally towards $50 ,000 per coin. Send it and let's go. We got Michal Benday Pop, who shared on X that the Bitcoin bull market is here. I would agree. What are your thoughts, fam? Benday Pop predicts the Bitcoin will rally as high as $50 ,000 per coin in the coming months before witnessing a pullback and surging to a new all time high. Quitting the analysts here, I think we'll see Bitcoin hit resistance at 38 Gs, baby, but most likely will continue towards 45 to 50 ,000 per Bitcoin pre having after that consolidation and sideways action for a long period before we start making new all time highs. And this is the chart which you can see here in your screen, which if you analyze it, he appears to predict Bitcoin will see $50 ,000 in January of 2024. What is that? November or November's tomorrow. So December, two months. Send it. I love it. Right in alignment with Credible Crypto, who's predicting $48 ,000 in the next two weeks. Let's go. I hope they're both right. The halving, which had historically coincided with the Bitcoin bull run, slashes the Bitcoin mining rewards, as we all know, in half, which is slated for April 2024, under six months out. And for now, Benday Pop thinks Bitcoin's in the midst of a consolidation period and a dip below $33 ,000 is still on the table. Quoting him again alongside this chart, Bitcoin technically constructing a range here slight correction towards $33 ,300 and quickly bought up if the lower boundaries are reached. Probably sentiment will flip bearish the $32 ,800, but that would signal a great long opportunity touche. Now let's break down our featured story of the day and discuss Max Keiser, who was just recently interviewed on the Alex Jones show. He was invited back. And let me share with you a little the back story, just in case you don't know the back story. Now, back in the day, maybe it was 2014, many years ago, Max Keiser, being a kind hearted gentleman, went on the Alex Jones show and he gifted Alex Jones 10 ,000 Bitcoin. I don't know the exact value of the Bitcoin at that time, but I can tell you what the value of 10 ,000 Bitcoin is in today's prices. If you run the math, that is freakin 350 million dollars. Long story short, Alex Jones claims he lost the laptop that Max put the Bitcoin on. Therefore, he has none of it. So Max being the kind hearted gentleman he is, he said, let me come back on the show now. And he actually just released this episode yesterday. So this is brand new, breaking all these predictions and everything I'm sharing with you. And I'm going to give you a basic quiz on Bitcoin, Alex. And if you can answer these five questions, I will give you another 10 ,000 Bitcoin valued at roughly three hundred and fifty million dollars per coin. And so Alex invited Max on the show. They did the quiz. Here are some of the highlights of the show I'm going to be sharing with you. However, if you want to watch it live with me, we're going to be doing a live JV react session exclusively on Rumble after the show stream ends on YouTube. We're going to be watching it together where Max is quizzing Alex and I'll be reacting live to the video. It's something I've never done before. Live reacting to these videos, but I think it's going to be phenomenal considering it's brand new content. Many of you have never seen it before. So make sure you're following me on Rumble because it's going to be lit. But first and foremost, here are some of the highlights from this recent interview. I posted it yesterday exclusively. I was the first one to post the entire interview on X. I already got over 500 hearts, 166 retweets and over fifty two thousand people viewed it. Here's what I wrote. Max Keiser joins the Alex Jones show to predict the latest Bitcoin trends and warn of the suicide bankers that will destroy the world. And here are some of the quotes regarding his predictions when Alex Jones asked them, so where's Bitcoin going to go next? Where do we go from here? Here's what Max Keiser shared. All fiat money and gold eventually goes to effectively zero against Bitcoin because it's demonetizing gold. The same way gold demonetized silver, Bitcoin will be demonetizing gold. So sure, gold will be maybe two thousand, three thousand, four thousand dollars announced. But we're talking about Bitcoin eventually going to five million to ten million dollars per coin. So you're purchasing power in gold terms is almost basically nothing compared to what's happening in Bitcoin. Preach very powerful words. And there is another quote I believe that I shared here. Let's see if I can find it. I click back on here.

A highlight from WILL SBF EXPOSE SEC GARY GENSLER'S DIRTY CRYPTO SECRETS?
"Welcome 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 five star rating and review it supports the podcast and it doesn't cost you anything. Well, folks, I want to start off by talking about the price of Bitcoin because we did close at a reasonable price. Right now, Bitcoin is at thirty four thousand five hundred and sixty seven dollars. So we closed the week and we're going to close the month out pretty strong. So looking good, we're still looking bullish. You know, one analyst here said, sorry, but there is nothing to be bearish about on this chart. Speaking about the Bitcoin chart, he said Bitcoin is up one hundred and ten percent this year. Bullish market structure, higher highs and higher lows. The price is above the twenty twenty one open. And there is a clear accumulation below thirty K waiting for a dip higher low is reasonable. Waiting for new lows is not so essentially highlighting that the charts look bullish. I think we all have been anticipating higher prices. Bitcoin could go to forty or forty K plus, but this is not a move to new all time highs. It's kind of the transition from bear to bull market. I believe the official bull market starts next year in April at the Bitcoin halving. And then we go on a slow, steady rise upwards into a parabolic move into twenty twenty five. That's how I'm looking at it. I could be wrong. So I'm not saying that's guaranteed. That is just a thesis. I think it's the more likely thesis based on how the market has played out historically. So Raoul Pal, macro investor, who I recently had on the podcast, highlighted that crypto liquidity is back on the rise, showing that Bitcoin year over year is moving with the global money supply, which is M2. And you can see here on the chart, the data doesn't lie. So M2 money supply is increasing again globally now. And we're seeing Bitcoin move with it. Just last week, I shared with you guys that China injected a whole bunch of money into the economy. Right. So quantitative easing is going to come back, folks. We are in a debt based system. They're going to find excuses to paint the narrative that they have to print more money and they're going to continue kicking the can down the road. They have no choice or the economies will collapse. And we know what would happen, right? That would be the worst case scenario. The collapse of civilization, people on the street killing each other over for food and whatever else. Obviously, they don't want that to happen. Now, Raoul says it really loves global M2. This is when Bitcoin outperforms the NASDAQ and crypto becomes a supermassive black hole. Our weekly global liquidity index is about to break above zero. Our GMI total liquidity is above zero and rising to and the Fed is net liquidity. He says here and the sweet gentle sound of cowbell can be heard in the not too far distance. So showing here the BKX index. This is the data, folks. The data doesn't lie. And we are seeing similar patterns. What we've seen historically, right? We are in that quantitative tightening cycle. It won't last forever. They're going to have to go back to quantitative easing and then we will be back in the bull markets. Now here, Kevin Swenson had a great, great video he put out this weekend. I highly recommend you guys go subscribe to his YouTube channel, follow him on Twitter. And he did a great pattern of the S &P 500 and Bitcoin showing that what we've been talking for about for a long time, that Bitcoin and the crypto market move with the stock market, the equities markets, right? And you could argue kind of what Raoul Pal is arguing is not so much that it follows the stock market, but it follows the money supply, right? M2 and the stock market obviously rises based on the amount of liquidity in the market. And Bitcoin and crypto is also doing the same thing. However, we're seeing some sort of weird decoupling right now. Now this could be a temporary thing, right? Bitcoin may be still catching up to the rally that the stock market did. One of the things Kevin mentioned was that BlackRock's ETF is such a huge catalyst because BlackRock is the world's largest asset manager. They are swaying more capital from Wall Street to flow into Bitcoin and crypto. And that's why you're seeing for the first time in history, or as it appears to be on the charts, a full deviation. It's very interesting. Now we have to let it play out because look, tomorrow a Black Swan event could happen and everything tanks, right? We saw what happened in March, 2020, you all know about the whole crisis then. So we could have something similar happen, but right now, this is very, very interesting folks. I am studying this and looking at this, like what's happening? Is this the tipping point where a lot of institutional investors are going to come out of the stock market and the equities market and put a lot of capital in crypto? We'll have to see, fingers crossed, right? That maybe it is the tipping point and don't get me wrong, I am diversified. I have a real estate property, a rental property, I have stocks and a 401k and all that stuff, right? And I obviously am heavily invested in crypto, but folks, this is very, very interesting. So you can go check out that video from Kevin. It's really, really insightful. Now, quick word from our sponsor, and that is Uphold. Uphold is a great crypto platform that I've been using since 2018. They have over 260 plus cryptocurrencies. They're available in over 150 countries. They're transparent. They secure your crypto. They don't lend it out. They don't co -mingle like FTX. And it's a platform that I've interviewed their CEO, their CFO and many folks. So I trust this platform. I use it. And, you know, during the Ripple lawsuit, they were one of the only exchanges that still listed XRP. So they got a great legal team and a great team overall. In addition, you can trade precious metals on this platform, folks, and they make it very easy to swap between precious metals and fiat currencies and crypto. So if you'd like to learn more about Uphold, please visit the link in the description. All right, folks, we got some very interesting news coming from the consumer action for a stronger economy. The slogan on their website is the free market voice for America's consumers. This is a nonprofit organization and consumer action for a strong economy. Also abbreviated as case C A S E. Well, folks, you know, they do a lot of advocacy on behalf of consumers, exposing the government, challenging the government. Right. Which is what we should be doing when the government overreaches or abuses their powers. Well, folks, they are focusing in on Gary Gensler and the SEC and their role in the Sam Beckman freed FTS situation. What have I been talking about for so long? Not just me, but others. Gary Gensler and the SEC met with the FTS officials and Sam Beckman freed multiple times. It was rumored Sam Beckman freed was going to get a special broker dealer license, same that Promethean got. So I think FTS was going to be a plant by Gary Gensler, same way he tried to do with Promethean and then tried to shut down the rest of the exchanges, Coinbase and so forth. Right. So the SEC could control the market as much as possible. But we know they're trying to do it in an illegal way without actual regulations, without Congress acting. But this ad exposes Gary Gensler and the lies and the corruption, the things he's been hiding. Notice he has not sent Congress all the communications with FTS. What is he hiding? Right. We saw Congressman Patrick Henry call him out saying, I don't want to send you a subpoena and I don't want to be you to be the first SEC chair that we have to send a subpoena to. So Gary has a lot to hide here, folks. I remember when Sam Beckman freed was supposed to go testify before Congress, all of a sudden the SEC came out and a couple of these other agencies, right, to kind of steer that in the other direction and cancel that whole situation because they know they're going to get exposed. So let me play the clip for you. It's about a minute long. Just listen to everything that's said. Samuel Beckman freed was arrested and criminally charged with one of the biggest financial frauds in American history. Meanwhile, Wall Street multimillionaire turned SEC Chairman Gary Gensler held multiple meetings with SPF while this fraud was happening. Gensler made millions on Wall Street, even laughing about how well he's done since then. And is it correct to say that you made most of your personal wealth directly through your employment at this bank, Goldman Sachs? I've done well since then, too, sir.

Also in today's show, bi -Bitcoin search queries on Google surge a whopping 826%, and the United Kingdom also breaking news. Cynthia Lummis leads the charge, calling for the Department of Justice action against Binance and Tether. Quoting Max Keiser in response to this news, the Wall Street Journal story was quickly debunked. The allegations are riseable. The only explanation is that Cynthia Lummis has been corrupted. Not surprising, she has never fully understood Bitcoin, and now we know she is a gun for hire for the fiat money terrorists and central bankers. The real terrorists, sad, but not surprising. I will pray for her. Shout out to the high priest of Bitcoin. Also in today's show, breaking news, BlackRock takes the apparent next big step in the Bitcoin ETF. That's right. Quoting Eric Balchunes, the ETF expert from Bloomberg, BlackRock stating in their recent spot Bitcoin ETF amendment that they are seeding the ETF in October. Don't want to read that much into it, but it is new info, not in the original filing. So it's noteworthy, especially because is BlackRock. You're damn right. I'm going to be sharing BlackRock's Bitcoin game plan. And did you know that BlackRock CEO Larry Fink exactly six years ago said Bitcoin is an index of money laundering. Now Larry Fink today is racing to launch the Bitcoin ETF and sees crypto as a flight to quality. 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 1443. I'm your host, JV. And today is October 27th, 2023. And naturally we got lots to cover. So let's dive right in and kick off today's show with our market watch as we do each and every day. So you should be able to see on the screen here, coin 360. We got Bitcoin pulling back some just under the cusp of $34 ,000. We still have Ethereum, BNB, Solana, XRP and Cardano in the green thus far for the day. And check it out coinmarketcap .com. The current crypto market cap sits at 1 .26 trillion with roughly 38 billion in volume in the past 24 hours. The Bitcoin dominance has been on the climb currently at 53 % even with the ether dominance at 17 .1%. I'd love to know your thoughts. How high do you think the Bitcoin dominance is likely to climb for this bull market? Now checking out the top 100 crypto gainers of the past 24 hours, NIO is leading the pack up 16%. And I'm not talking about NIO from the matrix. We're talking about the crypto trading at $8 .85, followed by Injective up 13%, trading at $13 .38, followed by Floki up 12%, trading at virtually nothing. Now also checking out here, Crypto Bubbles, we can see the top 100 crypto gainers for the past week. Overall, it's a sea of green, which we love to see. Only a handful in the red. We have the top gainers here being NIO and Injective as well. And checking out one of my favorite indicators is the crypto greed and fear index. We're currently rated a 70 in greed. Yesterday was a 71, last week a 53, which is neutral. And last month, a 44 in fear. So there you have it, fam. How many of you are currently bullish on the King crypto? Let me know and make some noise. Now let's dive into our Bitcoin technical analysis. Check out the charts where the Bitcoin price action is likely to go next. I'll give you a hint. $40 ,000. Send it and let's freaking go. Again, shout out to everyone just joining us in the live chat. As you can see here, Bitcoin surfed $34 ,000 at the October 27th Wall Street open as attention turned to the Bitcoin price performance against macro assets, as we can see here in the Bitcoin one hour candle chart. Now, data from Cointelegraph and TradingView showed Bitcoin holding steady, preserving its early weak gains. Bitcoin avoided significant volatility as the weekly and monthly closes, which is a key moment for the October uptrend. And it's been a hell of an October, wouldn't you say? Quoting Dan Crypto Trades here, I think Bitcoin will hang around this range for some time. He also shared roughly 33, the 35 ,000 is what I'm looking at as a range. Eyes on a sweep of any of these levels for a quick trade. And he shows you the low range, the mid range, as well as the high range. Dan, nonetheless, noted that open interest had recovered near levels last seen during the sudden uptick, which sent Bitcoin to 17 month highs. And as reported, open interest highs had formed a feature of the Bitcoin price squeezes during the prior weeks, quoting Dan Crypto Trades right here. Bitcoin open interest on Bybit has almost recovered to the level before the massive short squeeze this week. During that squeeze, we saw a 21 % decrease in open interest on Bybit, which was worth four hundred and fifty million dollars. Elsewhere, on chain monitoring resource material indicators flagged the downside signal on its proprietary trading instruments. And with two such daily signals currently in place, material indicators said that only a move to thirty eight thousand eight hundred and fifty would invalidate the bearish implication. And he continued, that doesn't mean we can't go there before the monthly candle closes, as he outlines here on this ex post alongside this chart. Now, more optimistic perspectives came from the macroeconomic comparisons. Many analysts projecting forty thousand incoming, including Crypto Calio, noting Bitcoin had outperformed the S &P considerably since September, with the odds of continued Bitcoin price upside still a good result. Quitting him here over the course of the past month, we have finally seen the bullish decoupling from Bitcoin from equities that everyone was waiting for. That's right. Bitcoin is on its own vector, does its own thing, and it don't care about the rest of the market. As he shares here, while Bitcoin is up only thirty six percent versus USD from the September lows, Bitcoin is up forty eight percent versus the SPX, and we're now up roughly one hundred and ten percent for the year. Not too shabby. And in a chart he shared here comparing Bitcoin to the S &P with key recent events of the Bitcoin history marked, Calio argues that there was plenty of fuel left in the tank for a move higher to forty thousand. I agree. Let me know if you agree to disagree with the analysts. Others focus on the significance of the recent resistance levels being within days of flipping to weekly and monthly support. Quoting Matthew Hyland, not sure how anyone can look at this Bitcoin chart objectively and conclude that breaking through thirty thousand or thirty two thousand is no big deal. One hundred percent. He also shared the last line of hope for them is the weekly and monthly closing below. So there we have it. This month is only four days left. And guess what is right around the corner? It's the birthday of Bitcoin. It was launched on Halloween Day, I believe, October thirty first of what was it, two thousand and nine. Crack me if I'm wrong. I'm guessing that's when the Genesis block was. And lo and behold, we're only four days away from Halloween. And we're not too far away from eleven eleven, November eleventh, which is the official Bitcoin day, which I declare maybe I'll share some more about Bitcoin day being a national holiday here a little later on in the show. Welcome to y 'all just joining us. Let me know if you're currently bullish or bearish on the King crypto. And do you think we can continue to soaring in November with this bullish momentum? Let me know your thoughts in the comments right down below. Now let's break down our next story of the day, and that's Bitcoin reaching all time highs in many countries around the world as all fiat currencies will eventually go to zero against BTC. Check this out. The price of Bitcoin was notched to new all time highs against some of the world's most inflationary fiat currencies across 30 hours over October twenty third and the twenty fourth. The cost of buying one Bitcoin reached all time highs using the Argentine peso, the Nigerian naira and the Turkish lira. Now, Lauten Kip and the Egyptian pound. Very interesting. I mean, Bitcoin's breaking out to all time highs everywhere. However, it should be noted that the result is due to the ongoing devaluation of currencies exasperated by Bitcoin's recent 16 percent surge. Now, the naira and the lira fell to their lowest points against the US dollar on the twenty fourth and the twenty fifth, while the peso is only point eight five percent off its all time low against the US dollar. And according to the IMF, the Venezuelan Bolivar currently has the highest annual inflation rate at three hundred and sixty percent. Could you imagine living over there and having hyperinflation occur at a three hundred and sixty percent increase month over month? That's pure insanity. Followed by the Zimbabwe dollar at three hundred and fourteen percent and the Sundanese pound at two hundred and fifty six percent, followed by the Argentine OSI at one hundred and twenty two percent. Now, the Turkish lira and the Nigerian naira came in sixth and fifteenth with the annual inflation rates of fifty one and twenty five percent, respectively, according to the IMF data. Now, crypto observers have long seen digital assets such as Bitcoin and stable coins as a hedge against rocketing inflation, and recent figures could bolster that narrative. Yeah, I would say now Nigeria, Turkey and Argentina boast the second twelfth and fifteenth highest rates of crypto adoption worldwide, according to a September twelfth report by Chainalysis, including the Giga Chad and chairman and founder of MicroStrategy, Michael Saylor, with inflation at ninety nine percent in Argentina. And this was back on February 15th when he made this tweet. It's ninety nine percent in Argentina, likely what the citizens of the beautiful country would benefit from Bitcoin. That's right. So why are all these citizens in these countries where hyperinflation is breaking out, moving to Bitcoin? I think that's why adoption is increasing drastically in places and countries like Nigeria. For example, Nigeria is finally becoming more welcoming to cryptos after its central bank banned local banks from providing services to crypto exchanges in February of twenty twenty one. Progress was made December of twenty twenty two when Nigeria announced its intention to pass a bill recognizing crypto currencies as a capital for investment, citing the need to keep up with global practices as one of the main reasons behind its change in stance. Now, while Turkey is home of some of the most crypto curious people, its central bank banned crypto payments for goods and services in April of twenty twenty one. It has also been working on a central bank digital currency, which we know is a CDC to digitalize the Turkish lira in the recent years. And as we all know, Bitcoin is the antidote to the CDC. So just say no to central bank digital currencies, aka program programmable fiat programmable dollars by the central bankers. Meanwhile, Argentina's inflation crisis could be influenced by the outcome of its presidential election in November, with presidential candidate Javier Malay set to face competitor Sergei Massa in a final runoff vote November 19th. That's just a few weeks out. Fam, hopefully Malay wins the presidency because Argentina has a massive population. This would help usher in massive Bitcoin adoption. Now, Massa, who currently serves as the country's minister of the economy, wants Argentina to launch a CDC as soon as possible to solve the country's long lasting inflation crisis. Now, we all know not going to solve that. Bitcoin is the only way to solve these problems. That's why we need Javier Malay to become president. Now, quoting Peter Schiff, Argentina's president provides a glimpse into America's future, where the central bank raised interest rates, 15 percentage points to 133 percent October 12th. But with inflation running at 138 percent and budget deficits and debt rising, the rate hikes will have no effect on reducing inflation. So there you have it. Now, he also voiced an intention to keep the U .S. dollar away from Argentines, explaining that Argentine should instead be patriots and defend the Argentine peso. I think that's hogwash. That's why we need to vote Malay fam. Malay, on the other hand, wants the U .S. dollar to be adopted in addition to abolishing Argentina's central bank. Hey, anyone who is calling for the abolishment of a central bank is pro bitcoins. That's what's up. We need pro bitcoin presidents like Najib Bukele, not more presidents like corrupted mofos like Sleepy Joe. Just saying, fam. Now let's break down our next breaking story of the day. And that is the richest man in crypto is CZ. It's no secret, but his fortune is getting slashed. And now there is FUD coming from Senator Cynthia Lummis. We're going to touch upon the FUD a little later, which I think is just bat -ish crazy. But nonetheless, here's the latest with the fortune of the richest man in crypto, CZ, the owner of Binance. So here we go. Binance co -founder and CEO CZ has seen his net worth slashed by almost 12 billion dollars amid the following trading volumes of his exchange Binance. October 26, the Bloomberg Billionaires Index cut Binance's revenue estimates by 38 percent amid a slump in the exchange volumes, which knocked CZ down to 95th place on the rich list. I think this is all by design. What are your thoughts? And I find it all interesting while the ongoing trial of SPF is taking place and he's actually testifying. Today is the last day of the court case, FYI. Now, CZ's net worth is now 17 .3 billion, not too shabby, registering an 82 percent drop from his 96 billion dollar peak in January of 2022. That was roughly two months after we hit the top of 69000 in Bitcoin. Naturally, with CZ being one of the larger hodlers of Bitcoin. So this ranked him amongst the 11th most richest people in the world, which leads me to believe the first trillionaire is going to be a Bitcoiner. Don't you think so? I think the first trillionaire will surpass the fortune of Bezos, Elon and all those other fools. Just saying. Bloomberg's index calculated Binance's revenues from spot and derivatives trading data from crypto data aggregators CoinGecko and CoinPop Rica. And as of September, the exchanges spot trading market share had fallen for seven consecutive months to 34 percent. And in January, the Binance spot market share was over 55 percent. Now, Binance U .S., its United States base arm, also saw volumes touch new lows last month. That's due to the SEC going after them clearly. Now, CZ's plummeting net worth and Binance's fading trading volumes follow twin lawsuits from the U .S. SEC and CFTC. Attack, attack. Very clear. The SEC sued CZ, Binance and Binance U .S. in June, claiming the exchanges operated illegally, sold unregistered securities and mishandled customer assets, with CZ named as their controlling person. Now, the CFTC suit in March claimed Binance did not properly register with the regulator. CZ and Binance reject both the regulator's allegations and seek to dismiss both lawsuits. Now, the recent fall pales compared to CZ's rival, Bankman Fried, who saw his 16 billion dollar fortune effectively wiped out November of 2022 after FTX disclosed this liquidity crisis just days before it filed for bankruptcy. And what makes this also very interesting, of course, Bankman Fried was considered one of the richest in the world, also on the Forbes rich list. And then just like that, in a matter of weeks after FTX collapsed, they filed bankruptcy. And now he's worth a big fat zero and most likely going to be facing some prison time and some other harsh punishments for the crimes he committed. We'll see how that all plays out. Hopefully we have some insights by next week on how the court trial has gone, as it's been going ongoing for the past two to three weeks. And with that being shared, fam, now let's break down the next story of the day and discuss by Bitcoin searches are going parabolic, which is a sign of the times that the bull market is here. It's like deja vu all down. Then we'll dive into the latest Cynthia Lemus Fudd and BlackRock ETF news, along with their date of when the ETF is likely to get the approval, followed by some live Q &A. Here we go. Google searches for buy Bitcoin have surged worldwide amid the major crypto rally, with searches in the UK growing by more than 800 percent in the last week. Now, how many of you are tuning in right now from the UK? Let me know. And how does it feel the sentiment of Bitcoin in your country? Yeah, I mean, let me know. According to research from Crypto Gambling TV, the search term by Bitcoin spiked by a staggering 826 percent in the UK over the course of seven days, quitting them here. The remarkable surge in by Bitcoin searches in the UK, combined with the crypto's resurgence, underscores the growing interest and potential impact a traditional financial institutions involvement of the world of digital assets. Now, while users in the UK led the pack, there was also noticeable increases in searches relating to purchasing Bitcoin from Web users all across the globe. According to data from Google Trends, searches from users in the United States for should I buy Bitcoin now increased by more than 250 percent. Let's go. While more niche searches, including can I buy Bitcoin on Fidelity, increased over thirty one hundred percent in the last week. That's because Fidelity is massively bullish on the king crypto. And they're the ones that put forth the billion dollar Bitcoin price prediction, which I covered here in the show. And zooming out further, the search term, is it a good time to buy Bitcoin? So I 100 percent plus gain worldwide over the last week. And in comparison, searches for BlackRock Bitcoin ETF also jumped 250 percent, demonstrating the broader enthusiasm for information relating to BlackRock spot Bitcoin ETF, which is currently pending approval, which all eyes are on the ETF right now. The sudden uptick of interest comes amid a drastic increase in the price of Bitcoin over the past fortnight, with Bitcoin briefly surpassing the value of thirty five thousand on October 24th. In fact, I think the local highs roughly thirty five thousand two hundred. The excitement appears closely linked to the approval of a spot Bitcoin ETF, which many pundits believe will unleash a fresh wave of buying from the institutions. Now, senior ETF analyst Eric Valchunas and James Safart have pinned the probability of an approval at 90 percent by January 10th of 2024, quoting James Safart here on X. I've gotten a lot of questions regarding my current view on spot Bitcoin ETFs over the last couple of weeks. This is the first section of the note I put out yesterday with Eric Valchunas. Now, obviously, he shared there is a 90 percent chance of the approval for ARK's January 10th deadline, which is going to be coming up here soon. And at this time, we have Bitcoin up now more than 27 percent for the past two weeks as October continues in full effect. And guess what? The month is yet to be over. So October for the win. Let's freakin go. Now, let's break down our next breaking news of the day. And I'm a little shocked to hear the FUD that Lummis has turned into a traitor. She has been. What's the word we're looking for here that Max Kaiser loves to use? The word is she has been corrupted. So, yeah, Max Kaiser calling her out. So much respect to the high priests of Bitcoin. I don't respect anyone pushing this Bitcoin FUD and narrative. Obviously, it's not a good look. And it goes to show you that any of the senators can be corrupted, just like Cynthia Lummis. So let's start with the actual tweet, which got this whole thing started. I think I have it saved somewhere here.

A highlight from Bitcoins Most EXPLOSIVE Bull Market Ever Is Coming! (Here's Why)
"Last week, on October 16th, we watched Bitcoin jump from just below 28k all the way to $30 ,000 in less than 10 minutes on the release of a fake report by Cointelegraph. That fake report was going to be the BlackRock ETF apparently finally launching. Then late Monday night on October 23rd, we saw prices absolutely destroy resistance and hit $35 ,000. All of this explosive price action has come from an excitement about the incoming Bitcoin ETF. It has gotten a lot of people interested in the prediction of what will be in fact happening when these ETFs are finally approved. Now while no one can give the exact number of when the bull market is going to top, in this video we are going to be diving deeper at the surrounding circumstances as well as how much money could actually flow into Bitcoin's price action to help you better understand just how significant these ETFs are and why this bull market just might be the most explosive one yet. It's time to discover crypto. Now before we get too far, let's make sure we lay the basis of what an actual ETF is. An ETF is a publicly traded investment vehicle that tracks the performance of an underlying asset or index. This is different from a stock because stocks only track the price action of one company. ETFs are a popular way for investors to get exposure to the value of an asset like gold or oil. They usually trade on traditional stock exchanges and their value should rise and fall when the asset increases or decreases in price. Now the first ETF launched all the way back in 1993 and they quickly became a popular way for investors to invest into a basket of assets all at once. More than likely you have heard of this ETF, it's called the S &P 500. When you purchase the S &P 500, instead of buying shares in 500 separate companies, the singular ETF lets you gain exposure to all of them combined all with one purchase. While we have had Bitcoin futures ETFs for a while now, which allow investors to trade future price action of Bitcoin, the news is currently flooded with stories about Bitcoin spot ETFs. A spot ETF is where a centralized entity like BlackRock purchases a large amount of Bitcoin, but then allows other investors to use the stock market to invest in Bitcoin at specific price and also take profit. But the Bitcoin would always belong to BlackRock, not the investor. Effectively, you could invest in the price movement at Bitcoin at any given price immediately without having or ever worrying about actually holding that crypto yourself. If you ever heard of the phrase, not your keys, not your crypto, BlackRock is essentially going to be holding and purchasing all of your crypto for you. Now for those of you who are currently holding Bitcoin and have learned about the advantages of self -custody, you might be asking why wouldn't the masses as well as the institutional investors just buy their own Bitcoin? Well while it seems like that should be simple, it actually can be a little complicated. While I personally would always advocate for self -custody, there are a couple of reasons that somebody would prefer an ETF. One of the biggest reasons is going to be just because of regulation, but they also may just not want to have to deal with the risks that come with and all of the burdens of self -custody ownership of a spot Bitcoin. An ETF would be approved by regulators and managed by a firm that would buy and hold the Bitcoin on their behalf. So they have nothing to worry about at all. In July of 2013, the Winklevoss twins with their Bitcoin trust filed for the first Bitcoin ETF proposal ever in the United States, yes, 10 years ago. It was rejected along with every other subsequent proposal for years. Then came along the ProShares Bitcoin strategy ETF and that became the first Bitcoin futures ETF available in the United States on October 19th of 2021. The purpose Bitcoin ETF used the trading ticker BTCC and made its debut in Toronto in early 2021. According to its issue purpose Investments Inc, this ETF invest directly in physical slash digital Bitcoin. And that's where things stand of as today. As I said before, there is a Bitcoin's futures ETF available on the US market, but not yet a spot Bitcoin ETF. But if the SEC does and has approved a Bitcoin futures ETF that claims to be investing directly into Bitcoin, then why hasn't it approved a spot Bitcoin ETF just yet? Well, that's the question. I think it's shocking that we don't have a better answer to that question. Nobody really knows. There have been a lot of applications, several rounds of frustrating congressional testimony by his ugliness, Darth Gensler, the vague. But none of this has actually ever yielded anything concrete other than a reluctance to allow Bitcoin to further integrate into the existing financial system. Now, Gary Gensler, everybody's favorite human being, got his start at Goldman Sachs. And there has been a lot of speculation that Gary Gensler wants to become the secretary of the Treasury after Janet Yellen. This would allow him to do the bidding of his old buddies on Wall Street. In other words, he's deliberately stalling while trade five bankers scramble up to catch up and bring the market centralized options to compete with Bitcoin. J .P. Morgan, for example, deployed its JPM coin for corporate clients in Europe in June of twenty twenty three and has been rushing the rollout of its onyx coin systems to the market. Now, no one can actually say for sure, but from the outside looking in, it sure seems like something corrupt is going on somewhere. I mean, it's never like JP Morgan's committed market manipulation in the past. Now, the SEC is currently reviewing applications for spot Bitcoin ETFs from the likes of Blackrock, Wisdom Tree, Invesco, Galaxy, Wise Origin, Vanick, Bitwise and Valkyrie digital assets. They recently delayed all of these again, but they are going to have to either finally approve or deny many of them by March of twenty twenty four. Oddly enough, this falls very close on the calendar to the estimated date of the next Bitcoin halving, which is currently projected to take place near the end of April twenty twenty four. And even more interesting, during a panel discussion on ETFs at CC Data's Digital Assets Summit in London, former BlackRock managing director Steven Schoenfeld, and I don't know if I'm butchering that name, who now serves as the CEO of Market Vector Indexes, predicted that the US SEC will approve a spot Bitcoin ETF within three to six months. Another ex BlackRock director, Martin Bednal, now CEO of Jacobi Asset Management, speaking at the same time at the same event, said that he also believes the SEC will approve all of these Bitcoin ETFs together. Now, this is to avoid any signs of market manipulation and make sure that BlackRock's not looked at as the favorite from the SEC. But if the approval of all these spot ETFs syncs up with a 50 percent reduction in a new issuance of Bitcoin, that could provide the basis of a very powerful bull run, a huge drop in supply, combined with a vast amount of new capital entering the Bitcoin market and generating demand. But how much demand? How much are we really talking about? And how much would the price actually move? Well, the combined market caps of these firms is around seventeen point eight trillion dollars. Yes, that's a lot of capital. The assets under management and all of this is hard to capture exactly because companies like Vanguard, State Street and BlackRock all have leaders who sit on each other's boards and they all effectively own each other in some way or another. Now, this makes it pretty hard to precisely estimate. However, going back to Stephen Schoenfeld, who may have mentioned before, says that his into Bitcoin, specifically into investment products over the next three years. Now, Bernstein estimates that the crypto fund management industry will grow to over five hundred billion dollars of assets in the next five years. And then there are lasered eyed maxis like Michael Saylor who think that Bitcoin is just going to go to infinity. So what's realistic to expect in terms of inflows and how much would that move the price of Bitcoin? Well, again, this is tough to say. But in March of twenty twenty one, Bank of America published a research note with some interesting observations on the subject. They claim that, quote, Bitcoin is extremely sensitive to increased dollar demand. They claim that it would take at least two billion dollars worth of inflows to move the price of gold by one percent and over two point two five billion to move 20 year plus treasury bonds by one percent. Thank God we print money. But Bitcoin was much easier. The analyst said, we estimate a net influence of Bitcoin of just ninety three million dollars would result in a price appreciation of one percent. He also added, looking at detailed block chain records, we find that the largest addresses have not been selling in aggregate since the beginning of the pandemic. That was back in twenty twenty one. And since then, whales have continued accumulating and supply held by long term Bitcoin holders has hit an all time high. So the supply of Bitcoin is still decreasing and Bitcoin is still very sensitive to increased spot demand. So let's have some fun and do a little bit of moon math. If we're looking at investment firms with a combined total of seventeen point seven trillion dollars of assets, let's say that they move just about one percent of that money into spot Bitcoin. That would be about one hundred and seventy seven billion dollars worth of new capital inflows into spot Bitcoin using Bank of America's estimate of about 90 million dollars to move Bitcoin up one percent in price. That would mean that in one year, the price of Bitcoin would rise a little bit over nineteen hundred percent. Now, at today's price levels of about thirty four thousand dollars per Bitcoin, a one thousand nine hundred percent increase over one year would put Bitcoin comfortably over the six hundred and forty thousand dollar price level. That to me seems wildly bullish and way too high. And I want to emphasize that there's a lot of estimation and assumption going into that calculation. But there is no guarantee that these spot Bitcoin purchases are going to be market orders and directly impact that price. And there's no way to know how much selling might be done once these numbers start to run up. Still, though, there's no denying that the mass approval of spot Bitcoin ETFs, combined with a new Bitcoin halving, would bring about a huge increase in demand alongside a huge reduction of supply, very similar to what we saw in 2004 November when Gold launched their ETF in the November of that year. That's just what I think. Let me know down in the comments how you think all of this is going to play out. Will the SEC approve a spot Bitcoin ETF or continue to keep them shut out of the market? And how much money do you think institutions are going to be bringing into Bitcoin once the ETF actually gets approved? Or do you think secretly they're already accumulating? That's all I got for this one. Make sure to smash that like button and subscribe to the channel to keep yourself educated on all things crypto. That being said, I'll see you all at the top.

Charlie, what you've done is incredible here. Maybe Charlie Kirk is on the college campuses. I want you to know we are lucky to have Charlie Kirk. Charlie Kirk's running the White House folks. I want to thank Charlie. He's an incredible guy. His spirit, his love of this country. He's done an amazing job building one of the most powerful youth organizations ever created. Turning Point USA. We will not embrace the ideas that have destroyed countries, destroyed lives, and we are going to fight for freedom on campuses across the country. That's why we are here. Brought to you by the loan experts I trust. Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific Mortgage at andrewandtodd .com. The House of Representatives does not have a speaker and says very clearly in the United States Constitution, the House of Representatives shall choose their speaker and other officers and shall have the sole power of impeachment. But right now there is no speaker of the House. Jim Jordan has effectively withdrawn from the speaker's race. We warned you on this program, the moderates were going to dig in. The moderates were going to try to hold the line and they have. The moderates want nothing to do with a conservative speaker. This is them executing their revenge from what happened with Motion to Vacate. It is a tit for tat back and forth. And I could tell you talking to the grassroots, talking to donors. I've had a lot of donor meetings this last week. Really amazing grassroots donors, really amazing people. There's some great donors out there that really love the country. They are so upset with the Republican Party. They are so over this clown show, this circus. The fact that you vacate the chair and then you have no plan to replace it. You can't have Jim. You cannot even get Jim Jordan to become speaker. It is widespread dysfunction. And the grassroots agrees. Talking everyday grassroots warriors. Let me read this one email and I understand. I understand that these emails can be more passion than actual reality. But I mean, I'll just read this one. Frank says, Charlie, the Republican Party is dead to me. We'll never vote for any of them again. OK, I hope you're wrong, but I understand the passion, the sentiment. I hope you change your mind. But what am I supposed to say? Yeah. Vote for Republicans, because if you give them power, what are they going to do? It's not exactly making the best sales pitch. So now there's new headlines that Jim Jordan has basically backed out. Jim Jordan will not pursue a third vote for speaker. That's too bad. And I'd like to see him continue to push this fight forward, but you can't blame him. I mean, only he knows the intensity and the things being thrown at him. So Jim Jordan is a great American. Jim Jordan is a true conservative. We've been pushing him this entire time. But 20 moderates want to try to get in the way to prevent Jim Jordan from becoming speaker. Now, there's bipartisan support, NBC News says. For McHenry Patrick to become temporary House speaker. Hold on a second, bipartisan support. That's a bad, bad headline, everybody. Wait, did we win the House or did we not win the House? We are effectively destroying our House majority because we cannot select a speaker. We warned about this back in January. We've warned about this last week. And I'm sad to say that if Patrick McHenry becomes temporary House speaker, it empowers the Democrats. This is worse than business as usual. The Democrats did not have any power this this last summer. You could say what you want about how you didn't like Kevin McCarthy and you didn't like the C .R. and the debt ceiling. I can resonate with that. But we had real committees on weaponization of government. We had real stuff going on Biden. So we asked, what was the plan? What was the plan? What was the plan? What was the plan? What was the plan? People said, well, just trust the process. Here we are trusting the process. And if Patrick McHenry is getting bipartisan support, that makes me not want to support him. We want a Republican speaker of the House, not a bipartisan speaker of the House. Big difference. We voted for a Republican majority. Notice that impeachment of Biden is gone. By the way, Biden's numbers are going to probably go up five to 10 points in the next week or two, not because he deserves it, but because you do a foreign visit and there's war and all that. It's it's one of the iron laws of politics is when a foreign leader goes abroad in a time of crisis, numbers go up. So we rolled the dice. We did motion to vacate. And some of you are going to say, you know, McKevin McCarthy totally deserved it. Hard to disagree on the C .R. and the debt ceiling stuff. When you spend two trillion dollars that you do not have in the border remains wide open. Jack Smith is unchecked. We're spending money Ukraine. I'm not going to defend that. Bipartisan means concessions. Because we cannot get our act together, because the Republican Party cannot get behind a single speaker, Jim Jordan or otherwise, if it ends up happening that Patrick McHenry becomes speaker of the House and bipartisan support unites behind it, you will have effectively neutered the Republican Congress. Pramila Jalapal, Jayapal, who is left of Joseph Stalin, has come out and said, quote, I'm waiting to see what the assurances are about power sharing. The chairman of the Progressive Caucus, your Republican Congress is going to have to now do power sharing with progressive Democrats. If this ends up happening and if I'm not going to say it is a guarantee, it is as if another election happened, breaking news, CNN Republicans lose House majority. Quote, what do we have to ensure? What happens here reflects the fact that the Democrats are essentially governing this body. You might have won the House of Representatives at the ballot box. But then you lose it because you can't select the speaker. So this is happening in real time. And Jim Jordan has backed out and some of you are very angry that, you know, Jim Jordan is, you know, this one here. Why is Jim Jordan turning into a fluff? Thought he was a fighter. What is going on? Look, you can't blame him. I understand you're angry and all this, but the 20 moderates are not moving. They're not budging, guys. This is the same problem that we illustrated when we said maybe Kevin McCarthy is not as bad as you think he is. And I will say this. The complaints against Kevin McCarthy, totally legit. Fine. C .R. debt ceiling. I don't like that stuff. But Kevin McCarthy would be and still to this day would be a better speaker. Then a bipartisan coalition government, that is a fact, that's a fact, power sharing coalition government, which is now not something that is being remotely entertained. By the way, we've been attacked on this program by people. Charlie, you're fear mongering. Not going to happen. I'm not going to say it's a guarantee, but it's about a 50 50 shot that there's a power sharing agreement at this point to share power with Pramila Jayapal. By the way, the Democrats, they're so smart. Nancy Pelosi told Kevin McCarthy, I'll always have your back. She's a liar, obviously. Kevin McCarthy gets the motion to vacate all the Democrats. The order came down from the Democrats. Do not bail out Kevin McCarthy. And Democrats said, huh? The Republicans don't have a plan. We might be able to take over the House. The Democrats said, hey, what do we have to lose? We just we just have to sit in our chair through another round of voting and yell. Jeffries, Jeffries for another hour. OK, so the Democrats, like good Stalinists, listen to the Politburo, got the order from on high and they said, OK, let's get rid McCarthy. Let's roll the dice. And now they might actually have won. The Democrats might have taken over the House majority without an election. The American people gave the Republicans a majority and the Democrats very well might take it over because of our dysfunction. Now, it's important to note, if something happened to Biden and Kamala, presidency could only be a person with the true title of speaker, not speaker pro tem or acting speaker. So if McEnany or anyone else is sitting in the speaker's chair as anything other than the true speaker elected by a roll call vote of the House, then after Biden, Harris, the president pro tem of the Senate, and then it would go to Anthony Blinken. Anthony Blinken, Lord help us all. And there's a lot of frustration coming in here. Freedom at Charlie Kirk dot com. And people say, well, Charlie, what is the plan? Honestly, that's not for me to answer. I'm not the one that has been calling for this stuff. I'm in the one that's actually been and I've received a fair amount of hostility from people, a fair amount of hostility to people. And that's fine. I appreciate it. I appreciate it. You guys were blooding me up and send tell me to go to bad places, Gehenna, which is Hebrew for help, because I was a little bit cautious, which is against some of my wiring, which is like, guys, hold on. Let's be careful. Some of you are saying, Charlie, give the Democrats the majority. We never had a majority. Pull the mask off and let's move on. Yeah, I think that's very irresponsible. That's not a good idea. A source familiar told The Daily Caller that, quote, Jordan will continue to run and try to shore up votes until then remain speaker designee, not dropping out McHenry temporary till January. Republicans are not exactly making the best case to give us more political power. What do you think about the Jim Jordan, Kevin McCarthy motion to vacate all of this together? Are you pleased with how the last two and a half weeks have gone? Do you think this is the best use of a precious majority? The only thing in government we control. Have you been thrilled post motion to vacate? Email me. Freedom at Charlie Kirk. Dot com. Hey, everybody, Charlie Kirk here every Halloween, you hear about the dangers in the candy your kids will get. But this year, the real tricks are in the meat aisle. Good ranchers wants to take the trick out of your meat, and they're throwing in a treat for my listeners. Lab grown meat is growing more and more popular. Foreign meat dresses up in a product of USA label and M .R .N .A. vaccine development is on the rise for agriculture. What's in your meat and food is more in question than ever before. Admit these haunting truths. The real hero arises. Good ranchers as the number one place to get America's best beef, pork, chicken and seafood delivered. Good ranchers products are transparently sourced, all American delicious. When you shop at good ranchers dot com, you don't have to question what's in your meat or where your meat is coming from. With one hundred percent American guarantee and a transparent vaccination policy, you'll always know where your meat comes from and what's in it. I trust good ranchers and you should to use promo code Kirk to get thirty dollars off free express shipping on your box of America's best meat and seafood today. That's code Kirk for thirty dollars off your box today at good ranchers dot com. That's good ranchers dot com promo code Kirk. American meat delivered. OK, I think I have to do a better job of explaining this because we're receiving a lot of emails of people confused, saying, Charlie, what do you mean? We could lose the majority. OK, so let me do a better job of kind of articulating this. So you have four hundred and thirty five, right, like 435, 435 members of the United States House of Representatives voting members. You have some people from Guam or the Virgin Islands that aren't voting members that can sit on committees. OK, there are four hundred and thirty five people in the United States Congress and they come together and obviously divided by party. And so one party has more members than the other Republicans. I think right now of two twenty one to twenty to twenty one, right, depending on who's sick or who's in the hospital. Not a joke. You know, when you have to twenty one, it's tough to organize right to twenty to twenty one. So your margin gets to twenty one. Thank you. And Democrats have to twelve and then there's two vacant seats. And so it goes up and down and up and down. It's tough. And they don't allow remote voting. Thankfully, they shouldn't for voting for speaker. So you have to be there in person. So when you have a majority to twenty one and the bad guys have a minority, you should be able to say, hey, that the magic number, whoever can get two hundred and seventeen votes, then you become speaker of the House. You have a majority. You control committees, legislative agenda, all that stuff. So but if part of your party, part of the two twenty one decide to go in a line with the two twelve of the Democrats, which only takes five to five, Republicans could hand the majority over to Democrats and they might.
A highlight from Ep394: The Best Way To Niche Down Your Podcast
"If you're trying to talk to everybody, you're really talking to nobody. If only two thirds of your episodes is valuable to somebody, if only a third of them are, twenty five percent of your podcast episodes are truly for all of the people listening, then you lose listeners. Most hosts never achieve the results they hoped for. They're falling short on listenership and monetization, meaning their message isn't being heard and their show ends up costing them money. This podcast was created to help you grow your listenership and make money while you're at it. Get ready to take notes. Here's your host, Adam Adams. Hey, Podcaster. I recently got home from sponsoring an event that was put on for four days just for podcasters, and I met a couple of people. I met one guy who had a sports podcast and I met another guy who had a sports podcast. One of them thought that they were niching and the other was actually niching. Let's dive in. The gentleman who just simply thought that he was niching, he had a sports podcast and he's like, well, that's niching, it's about sports. And I talked to him and I was like, OK, which sports, which teams are you covering? He said, well, I'm covering basketball, I'm covering football and I'm covering baseball. And I go, why those three sports? And he said it's because he played basketball, football and baseball. And he follows all three of them religiously and really understands the dynamic between the players. And then I asked him, so can you explain what you mean by that? You're niching. He said, well, here's the thing. I've got a totally different way of doing it than anybody else in my industry. Anyone else who has sports, they might talk about the head player, the Michael Jordan, the Kobe Bryant, you name it, the person who is the most well -known on the team. And they will talk about how that person is, how that person was feeling during the game, what injuries that person has and what it means for the team. And he's a little bit different. He's niching, he says, because he has a different approach. He comes with the approach of that. I look at the game holistically. I look at all the players. I know everything about all the players. I know where they came from. I know what they're good at and what they're bad at. And when I talk about the teams in football and baseball and basketball, when I talk about those teams, I do it a lot differently because I look at it as a holistic thing. Instead of just player by player, I look at it. How does the team collectively work? How does this person pass the ball to that person? And how does that person shoot the ball, et cetera? Depending, of course, nobody shoots the ball and football. I get it or baseball, but you know what I mean. He's got all three of these and he feels like it's niche. Why? Because, A, he's only got three of the sports. And, B, he feels like it's niche because he's different. He does it differently. But here's the biggest reason why it's not niched is because he hasn't been doing a good enough job. No offense to him. I'm not trying to make him mad or upset if he listens to this episode. That's not the goal. I just want to say that he doesn't do a good enough job at explaining that he's drawing his line in the sand. You might have heard me talk a little bit about that cave person named, you had to bang your chest when you say because that's how I guess cave people did it and so figures out fire and then he wants to do the fire. And then he draws his line in the sand because the chief says, hell, no, we're not doing fire. That could hurt us. It could burn us. We're not doing that. And so says, I'm not good with the status quo. I'm not good with what other the current chief wants to do. And so he draws a line in the sand and he says on that side of the line, these are the things that happens. Who wants to follow me? So he specifically points out that he is different. He purposefully points out that he is different. But the guy that I met at this podcast event, he doesn't do a good enough job, even drawing a line in the sand. So he might do it differently, but he doesn't even say that he does it differently. Second, the next point is he's got three whole sports that he's doing. He's got three different sports. And I'm sorry, very few people follow all three of those sports. So it's not niched at all. It's not niched at all. So the person who cares about maybe let's just pretend that they really like football and basketball, they couldn't give a darn about baseball. And so thirty three percent of the episodes that this guy is putting out, the person who loves football and loves basketball says, you know what, this podcast isn't actually for me. So what is the mistake that he's making? Think about it for a second. And I want this to sit in your head for a long, long time. If you're trying to talk to everybody, you're really talking to nobody, if only two thirds of your episodes is valuable to somebody or one third of your episodes is valuable to the person that you want to support and help, if only a third of them or only two thirds of your episodes or twenty five percent of your podcast episodes are truly for all of the people listening, then you lose listeners. And so I look at the statistics of this guy's social media and I look at the statistics of his podcast for the podcast. He is well below the 50 percentile, which means almost nobody's listening to him. He has way, way, way less than one hundred downloads per episode. And on his Instagram, he only has like one person that might like or comment. I scrolled and scrolled and scrolled. And one of his things had twenty. One of them had twenty. A couple had ten, but many of them had one, two or three people liking or commenting. So this is because he's making a huge, horrible mistake by not understanding what it really means to niche. Yeah, I've got a podcast and it's only for sports fans and it's only for, I guess, people that like all three of these. And it's only if they want it to be different from other sports casts that share all three of these, but share it in a different way. But I'm not even going to tell them that it's different. So now let's go and look at the other guy. The other guy is a Buffalo Bills podcast. It's football, only football, but it's only one freaking team, one team. So instead of doing three different sports and all of the teams and all of the players and getting nobody listening to you, the other guy does one sport and only one team underneath that sport. And I looked and they actually have millions of downloads through their other mediums that they are on. Millions, millions, millions. Very interesting to think of. One guy wants it to be broad and open and he wants to serve everyone. The other guy only wants to serve just the teeniest, tiniest amount of people. But why does the second guy get such massively better results when he's not even talking about all of football? He's only talking about one team, one team. It's because if you're talking to everybody, if you're trying to talk to all of the people, none of them really are listening. You're not getting heard. So when you go and think about your own podcast, where is it now, if you've got one, what are you doing to niche? Are you trying to talk to everybody or are you trying to talk to one very finite individual, one avatar? I want you to leave this podcast episode today thinking about if you're niching enough and thinking about, do I have a friend? Think to this. Think right now. Do I have a friend who's got a podcast, but they're not actually niched and they barely have anyone following them? They're trying to talk to everybody. And that's why they're really talking to nobody. Share this episode with them. If it's you, awesome. Fix it. If it's your friend, awesome. Push, copy, paste and send to your friend so that they can learn what niching truly is, what niching really means, and so that they can understand that the smaller you go, the more listeners you have. I'm sure the one guy who talks about three different sports and all of the teams within that sports, I'm sure he talks a little bit about the Buffalo Bills, I'm sure he does. But when we talk about that other guy who only talks about the Buffalo Bills, you would think he's not helping the people that are like in baseball. He's not helping those people that like basketball. He's not helping all those other sports. No one's going to listen. But he actually has millions of downloads compared to one download or millions of downloads. Which one do you choose? I'll see you on the next episode. You're not alone if you're ready to either get your very first affordable microphone or if you're ready to upgrade your equipment to some legit podcasting studio equipment, because on all of the forums over the last few months, I'm seeing this all the time, even my own personal clients that work with my team, they're ready to get that next microphone. They're asking us for it. Additionally, when I'm on discovery calls with potential clients, they're always asking for this stuff. Hey, what mic do you recommend? Hey, what lighting do you recommend? What webcam should I be using? So many questions. And so what we did, my whole team has put together a PDF so that if you're one of those people who is looking to either get your very first affordable microphone or if you're ready to upgrade your equipment to more professional podcast studio equipment, whether it's soundproofing or whatever, we've got you covered by going to grow your show dot com board slash PDF. And you can download the PDF for free or right there on the Web page is everything that you would have. And you don't need to download the PDF either way. Just go to grow your show dot com forward slash PDF, which will put you to the podcasting equipment that me and my team have personally vetted. I'll see you on the next episode.
A highlight from FED Forced Into Hard Landing As War Continues! (Is Bitcoin Safe?)
"All right, we're back. It's day five of the war. We got Bitcoin trading at twenty seven thousand one hundred and two dollars. But yesterday, one of the world's best investors came out and he said that right now he's doubling down on his bets of not only Bitcoin, but also gold. I want you guys to listen to what Paul Tudor Jones said yesterday in an interview with CNBC. I think I think now the barbarous relics and I would lump gold and Bitcoin together. I think they probably take on a larger percentage of your portfolio than historically they would because. OK, so the because is what we're going to be discussing this show. Why is Paul Tudor Jones, who's generally been bullish on Bitcoin, but why is he doubling down and why is he doubling down right now? And I'm also going to show you why I think he's 100 percent right, because that's not only that's not the the only data that I've seen. In fact, I saw another piece of data today which shows which convinced me that this is the best time to be investing in crypto. And I know that we're in the middle of a war and we actually just had some really, really, really bad inflation numbers, which should have probably spooked the market. I mean, we got the PPI numbers, which came out at two point two percent, which was way, way, way above the expectation of one point six percent. Yet, if I see it correctly, the markets aren't really moving. Let's just check what the markets are moving. Bitcoin is at twenty one thousand one hundred and eighteen. The S &P continues to go up. So I'm going to show you what the data is saying and why the data is saying that right now is the best time to buy crypto. So that's what we're going to be speaking about today. We're going to be covering the war. We're going to be talking about how the war is affecting crypto. And of course, as I said, why it's the best time to be buying crypto. But before we get into the show, I you've ever had a day like this? OK, so have you ever had a day or a trade? Not not a day, but have you ever had a trade like this? How many times has happened to me? Wow. OK, let's go.
Bret Baier: This Is Not Military Versus Military
"Civilians families kids babies um that's a different level and so we have a duty to show it and you know maybe some of those people have a change of mind after they see it one more question because i want to get to your fantastic book the says administration that they all support israel come high hell or water yet an assistant national security advisor several several hours back talked about proportionality the response needs to be proportionate my wife says to me what the israelis have to to rape and maim and decapitate that's proportionate in other words this is absurd why why don't we let the israelis do what they have to do they're a humane people they have a democratic government they're facing annihilation i don't remember people telling us what to do after nine eleven we were in afghanistan for twenty one years this is problematic as far as i'm concerned you're either gonna have to defeat an enemy but you're not going to defeat an enemy and you're going to have your soldiers
CBP Data: Any Terrorists in 1.5 Million Known Gotaways Since 2021?
"Check in there. Big big upgrade. You want to get terrorists in the country, you're doing a damn good job. Maluja notes there have also been over one point five million known God aways since the start of twenty twenty one, enough to fill 16 Rose Bowls. I'm I'm sure there's no terrorists in there. I told you when I was investigating these exact same border mules who are deeply experienced and and understand the terrain features of the border in many cases better than some of the border patrol guys who are new. And that that's by no means an insult. Some of these border patrol agents out of FLETC have only been there a few months. These terrorist transporter drug mule people at the border have been working these borders for years, for years. You don't think the terrorists that are down in the tri -border region and in South America, you don't think they've figured out that the southern border is porous and open? Folks, Politico, which is to the left of London, wrote a piece about this five, six years ago. It was a 9 ,000 word expose about how the Iranians and others figured out a way to infiltrate

Rep. Jim Jordan: Running for House Speaker
"And independents and democrats why we don't want to go where the left which now controls the other party is taking the nation and uh... that is a slightly different I think part of this uh... a role for the speaker to to be out there talking in in in those ways but I think that's important particularly in divided government where it's it's tough to get anything across the finish line. Do you think uh... people like these eight or sometimes it's five or sometimes it's twenty one and so forth do you think people they'll understand what's been done they'll understand how in so many ways they derailed but you and others have negotiated and supported and that they got to get their act together now and and as Chip Roy likes to say sometimes we need to accept victory? I think so I really do because if we don't if we can't come together and I think we can and I think I think I'm the one guy who can do that I mean right now I've got support from people like Scott Perry the chairman of the Freedom Caucus to Jeff Van Drew who four years ago was a Democrat and then switched parties and a bunch of folks in between so I think I can bring us together but if we
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 1410: Bitcoin Will Hit $10,000,000 Per Coin - Binance CEO CZ
"In today's show, I'll be breaking down the latest technical analysis. And also I'm going to be sharing with you a 48 ,700 Bitcoin price target, pre halving according to a top analyst. Also did you know it was exactly six years ago today, China tried and failed to ban Bitcoin for the second time and ever since the Bitcoin price action is up 600 % and the mining hash rate is back at all time highs. Also quitting Max Kaiser, Bukele has restored the human rights to 7 million Salvadorians that have been taken away by murderous runts, the British and American state, a 93 % approval rating tells the story of the most popular leader in the world. And now Bukele -nomics is being copied around the world as a blueprint for freedom and justice preach. Also in today's show, Mt. Gox repayments delayed yet again. Creditors are waiting on Bitcoin, Bitcoin cash and Yen payments until next year in 2024. We'll also be discussing, according to this latest report, Coinbase currently holds 5 % of the entire Bitcoin supply in existence. That's right. While Coinbase holds 25 billion in BTC, the exchange only owns around 200 million in Bitcoin and its wallets. We'll also be discussing the catalyst, which will catapult the Bitcoin price action. According to skybridge capitals, Anthony Scaramucci will also be discussing the latest with the Binance CEO CZ setting the record straight on $250 million loan claims. That's right. The US court had recently denied an inspection plea by the SEC. I'll be breaking down this latest FUD and speaking of CZ, the Binance CEO predicts the Bitcoin price will reach $10 million per coin. In fact, a couple of years back in an interview, he said, if all of the major institutions allocate 1 % Bitcoin, we're going to see 1000 X or more growth of the Bitcoin price. And if you run the math, 1000 times today's price action is 26 to $27 million per BTC. 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 crypto news alerts .net. Again, that's crypto news alerts .net and welcome everyone just joining us. This is podcast episode number 1410. I'm your host JV and today is September 23rd, 2023. So welcome to another sat stacking Saturday. Let's kick it off with our market watch as we do here each and every day, seven days a week. We can see Bitcoin back in the green trading above 26 .6 and we also have ether back in the green trading at roughly $1 ,600. The market cap is sitting at 1 .06 trillion with roughly 17 billion in volume. In the past 24 hours, we've got Bitcoin dominance at 49 .1 % and the ether dominance at 18 .2 % as Bitcoin continues outpacing Ethereum and checking out the top 100 crypto gainers of the past 24 hours, we've got theta lead in the pack up 7 % trading just under 64 cents followed by rocket pool up 4 % trading at $21 .63, followed by chain link up 4 % trading at $7 .18 and checking out the top 100 crypto gainers of the past week, we have WeMix leading this pack up 15%. We have PLS up 8 .2 % and XRD up 11, I mean 7 .4 % and checking out the crypto greed and fear index, we're currently rated a 47, which is neutral. Yesterday was a 43 in fear, last week also a 43 and last month a 41 in fear. So there you have it. How many of you have been stacking M -Sats and taking advantage of the recent dip in dollar cost averaging? Let me know. And how many of you are anticipating Bitcoin price action to maybe dip a little further south before packing some new positions? Let me know how you feel with the current status. And also just quick reminder, we're almost at the end of September historically, September is the worst month out of the entire year for the Bitcoin price action, but it's always followed by up tober, which is historically one of the most bullish months for Bitcoin. So we only have another week until we get out of September. So we'll see how this is likely to play out. Let's break down today's Bitcoin technical analysis. Bitcoin failed to reclaim 27 ,000, though we came close. It stalled at 26 ,500 as of right now. Meanwhile, the altcoins are in no better shape with minor losses coming from most of the larger cap ones. With Chainlink, the only one with a notable price increase. So last week was expectedly less volatile, aside from the brief spike on Saturday that pushed Bitcoin then to the multi -day peak of 26 ,400. But after failing to continue upwards, Bitcoin retraced at 26 ,000 and spent the rest of the weekend there. Then Monday didn't start all that positively either, but finished the way. Bitcoin went on the offensive and soared above 27 ,000 for the first time in weeks, but then shortly dumped after. But the bulls kept the pressure on and pushed Bitcoin to a new 20 -day peak at 27 ,500 on Tuesday. The next few days were rather calm with Bitcoin maintaining 27 G's, even after the US Fed's decision to stop raising the interest rates. Yet Bitcoin's momentum disappeared by Friday as it fell to 26 ,400. It even tried to bounce off the end of the day, but failed and currently stands at 26 ,500. Its market cap is south of 520 billion, while its dominance over the alts still just inches shy of 49%. So there you have it. And as we mentioned a little earlier, the altcoins, a lot of them are also in the red with the exception of Chainlink, which seems to be outpacing the rest of the major alts. Now for a prediction from Titan of Crypto, here's what he shared on X. Bitcoin 48 ,700 before the halving rocket ship to the moon. You might want to bookmark this one. Fam, never in history the halving occurred without Bitcoin reaching the 78 .6 % Fibonacci retracement level. So first off, first cycle price reached this four months before the halving, and the second cycle it was two months before, and then on the third cycle it was 12 months before. The next halving is now roughly six months away. Bitcoin might reach the 78 .6 % Fibonacci level within this period as it currently lies at 48 ,700, but the million dollar question remains, will this time be different? So as we enter this fourth halving, let me know where you feel the Bitcoin price action is likely to hit before we have liftoff. I mean, obviously that would be a bullish scenario setting us up for a perfect price discovery in 2024 post halving. So I cannot wait. I hope the analyst is right. And if you didn't know, it was exactly six years ago. China tried and failed to ban Bitcoin for the second time because guess what? You can't ban Bitcoin. You can try. Good luck with that. And ever since the price action on the King Crypto is up 600 % and the mining hash rate continues to hit all time highs. And as you know, hash rate is a good indicator for the strength of the network, meaning the market cap is just north of only $500 billion. And as Max points out here, referring to Bukele, he has restored the human rights of 7 million Salvadorans that have been taken away by murderous runts. The British and American state, a 93 % approval rating tells the story, the most popular leader in the world. And now Bukele Nomics is being copied around the world as a blueprint for freedom and justice. Massive shout out to Najib Bukele and the people of El Salvador. Which country do you feel is likely to adopt Bitcoin as a legal tender next? Let me know your honest thoughts in the comments below. I feel it's going to be another Latin American country. I'd say a great candidate for that is Argentina, which has hundreds of millions of people. We have Javier Malay, the pro presidential candidate. There is a 70 % chance plus that he is elected as the president. And we already know the likelihood he could make Bitcoin a legal tender, especially being orange -pilled by Max Keiser, who is the senior Bitcoin advisor for President Bukele. As Max has already announced, he can't wait to touch down in Buenos Aires to orange pill Javier Malay. Then we also have Mexico. We have people like Ricardo Salinas, the third richest man in Mexico, very pro Bitcoin, claiming Bitcoin has been his best investment ever because, again, Max orange -pilled him back in 2014. Then we have Brazil and so many other countries that make Bitcoin a potential to become legal tender. And we all know that's going to be a game changer. And that's just another catalyst on top of the Bitcoin halving scheduled in six months in 2024, plus the approval of a spot Bitcoin ETF in the United States. So can you say fireworks lays ahead? Let's go. Now let's discuss the latest more bullish news, meaning Mt. Gox is going to be delaying these payments, which means no crypto is going to be dumped onto the open market anytime soon, which again is good for the hodlers. Check it out. Now we got Nobuaki, the Mt. Gox trustee in charge of the funds owed to the exchange creditors, updated the public on September 21st, two days ago, according to the trustee, because of the lengthy discussions with specific payment providers, he could not make the October 31st deadline. That was the initial deadline, fam. And because of this reason, the repayments will start next year. And so they say, quitting him here. Therefore, with the permission of the Tokyo district court, the rehabilitation trustee changed the deadline of the base repayment, the early lump sum repayment and the intermediate repayment from October 31st, 2023 Japan time to October 31st, 2024 Japan time, respectively. By the letter of the Kobashi details, the Mt. Gox creditors waited nine years for payments. Good Lord. Currently, they're owed one hundred and forty one thousand six hundred and eighty six BTC plus one hundred and forty two thousand eight hundred and forty six Bitcoin cash and sixty nine is that billion yen. Good Lord. I'd love to know what that equates to in dollars anyways, though the delay has been extended. The creditors who have completed their claims might receive the payment by year's end, quoting them again. Rehabilitation creditors who have provided the necessary info to the rehabilitation trustee will see the payments made in a sequence as early as the end of this year, according to the letter. However, this schedule could change. Kobashi also said that due to the high volume of inquiries regarding the process, the rehabilitation team might not respond promptly. Well, that doesn't sound so promising, but I guess it's a good sign that most of this cash is not going to be dumped off any time soon, as there's a lot of FUD that's always circulating. The Mt. Gox, you know, sell off is going to crash the entire market. I think that is very unlikely and is nothing more than FUD. And again, we're gearing up for the most bullish sentiment in the four year cyclical cycle amongst us in twenty twenty four. So versus being in fear, I would be very optimistic about what's to come for the king crypto and the crypto market as a whole. But what are your thoughts, fam? Let me know in the comments right down below. Now let's discuss the largest crypto exchange in the United States. Clearly, it is Coinbase. The CEO is Brian Armstrong. But did you know, according to this latest report, they currently control and own over five percent of the Bitcoin in circulation. That's pretty hefty. And let's break this one down. And how many of you have used the Coinbase crypto exchange before? Let me know in the comments below. Here we go. Blockchain intelligence platform ARKAM recently identified the crypto exchange Coinbase holds almost one million Bitcoin in its wallets like, whoa, the coins are worth more than twenty five billion dollars at the current prices. Now, according to ARKAM, the exchanges holdings amount to almost five percent of all the existing Bitcoin. ARKAM said Coinbase holds a total of nine hundred forty seven thousand seven hundred and fifty five BTC. And at the moment, Bitcoin circulating supply is around nineteen million four hundred ninety three thousand five hundred thirty seven, according to coin info on CoinGecko. And as ARKAM shared here on X, ARKAM now identified twenty five billion of Bitcoin's Coinbase reserves with one million, approximately Bitcoin on chain. This makes Coinbase the largest Bitcoin entity in the world on ARKAM, with almost five percent of all the Bitcoin in existence, almost as much as Satoshi Nakamoto. Crazy, right? Furthermore, ARKAM noted that it has tagged and identified thirty six million Bitcoin deposits and holding addresses used by the exchange. And according to ARKAM, Coinbase's largest cold wallet holds around ten thousand BTC. And based on the exchanges financial reports, the intelligence company believes that Coinbase has more Bitcoin than are yet labeled and could not be identified. And while Coinbase holds over twenty five billion worth of Bitcoin in its wallets, the exchange only owns around ten thousand of all the Bitcoin in which it holds, which is roughly two hundred million dollars, according to the recent data. Meanwhile, community members express varying reactions to the news about the amount of Bitcoin on the centralized exchange in which they hold. Some believe it's a sign to withdraw their Bitcoin from the exchanges, warning hodlers not to wait until the exchanges start to halt withdrawals. Others say that since there are legitimate concerns over cold wallets, there is no good way to store your assets. I'd like to chime in real quick. Obviously, if it's not your keys, it's not your coins. So while a custodian such as Coinbase can hold your crypto, you've got to also note that it's not yours. So if something were to happen, hypothetically, like we've seen with FTX and the collapse last year, then not your keys, not your coins, they don't belong to you at the end of the day. So you've got to start to weigh the risk reward with having a custodian such as Coinbase or a centralized exchange hold your coins versus taking the responsibility for yourself and learning how to self custody your own crypto and call storage such as with a Bitcoin cold wallet, such as a treasure. So I just wanted to point that out. There's no right or wrong way to hold your crypto. You've got to do what's in your best interest, of course. So, you know, I mean, just want to keep it real at the end of the day. So check it when it comes to Bitcoin ownership by companies, business intelligence for MicroStrategy still owns most Bitcoin. I believe it's over one hundred and fifty two thousand eight hundred BTC, to be exact, worth over four billion dollars at the time of this recording, making them the largest publicly traded company to have Bitcoin on their balance sheet. Now, another major company that controls over six hundred thousand BTC is Grayscale in their GBTC product, the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust, which they just recently had a lawsuit against the SEC with the plan to convert their trust into a spot Bitcoin ETF. So considering they already control the underlying asset in the sum of over six hundred thousand BTC makes them a pretty strong contender. Wouldn't you agree? Let me know your thoughts, fam. And now let's break down our next story of the day and discuss the Bitcoin price likely to catapult along with the altcoin to coin to SkyBridge Capital, Anthony Scaramucci. Let's break this down. Shout out to the Mooch, SkyBridge Capital founder Scaramucci is detailing how one catalyst could have a bullish impact on Bitcoin, as well as the alt. In an interview with the Wolf of Wall Street, Scott Melker Scaramucci says that a spot Bitcoin ETF could be approved in the first quarter of twenty twenty four, which seems to be a ninety five percent likelihood, according to top ETF analyst at Bloomberg, Eric Balchunes. So according to SkyBridge Capital founder, the approval of the spot Bitcoin ETF and the Bitcoin halving, which is expected to occur in April of twenty twenty four, could combine to ignite a crypto bull market. No, it's not. It could combine. It will combine. Just saying. Quitting him here as Wall Street or products on Wall Street are sold, they are not bought. And so there is going to be tens of thousands, if not one hundred thousand plus people at these Wall Street firms selling these products to their traditional investors. So people that are in Bitcoin understand the finite supply of Bitcoin, right? We all know there's a finite limited supply, 21 million, and they understand the nature and the quality the Bitcoin has. This will push Bitcoin up. Of course, it will have a dramatically positive effect on the altcoin market because it will lead to more capital into digital properties so people can think whatever they want. They can think short term about the near term volatility of Bitcoin. But these macro positive factors are overwhelming. And according to Scaramucci, the potential approval of a spot Bitcoin ETF filed by giant asset managers such as BlackRock, who controls over 10 trillion in assets under management and Fidelity, that controls over four and a half trillion in assets under management, can see Bitcoin increasing its market cap by roughly 24 times from the current level. We'll send it. Let's go quoting the Mooch here. It is important that now the largest asset manager in the world who started out with some level of skepticism related to digital assets and Bitcoin is now willing to adopt Bitcoin. I mean, I guess they mean BlackRock is willing to adopt Bitcoin, but even more important than that, they're willing to explain to their clients. I think BlackRock now has 13 trillion dollars in assets under management. So for them, seven trillion for Fidelity. While these numbers are higher than I even imagine, while their clients need exposure to digital property like Bitcoin. And so we have a five hundred billion dollar plus market for Bitcoin. So you and I know gold is at 12 trillion ish, depending on where it's trading. But yes, 12 trillion. There is no reason why Bitcoin couldn't get gold. So there you have it. And to watch this video interview he did with Scott Melker entitled 37000 Bitcoin. Can it skyrocket 35 percent? Check the show notes below the video in the description. And I think we all could agree it's only a matter of time before Bitcoin returns to price discovery mode, virtually meaning entering new all time highs. My personal prediction is sometime in 2024, considering the two biggest catalysts, which we just covered, the Bitcoin halving and Bitcoin ETF approval, which we know is going to be a given, especially considering the SEC is not going to be able to push it back and push back that deadline any longer because, you know, they just they have been pushing it back now for 10 years while they continue to approve futures ETFs, which can allow them to spoof and manipulate the market, which is all by design. At the end of the day, there's not new under the sun and three things cannot be long hidden. The sun, the moon and the truth. But just saying. Anyways, fam, now let's discuss the ongoing fight against CZ, the finance CEO with this 250 million dollar loan. And then I'll be breaking down his 10 million dollar price prediction and in fact sharing a transcription of him claiming that Bitcoin can thousand X from the current price, which would ultimately mean not 10 million, but we're talking twenty six to twenty seven million dollars per coin. Let's break this down. So here we go. First, with the FUD, the Binance CEO, CZ Shangping Zhao had refuted a recent report alleging that he received the 250 million dollar loan from BAM Management, the company that serves as the holding entity for Binance US. Now, how many of you have used Binance US or Binance before as the exchange? Let me know, fam. The development comes amidst Binance's struggles with plunging trading volume as the world's largest crypto exchange faces mounting lawsuits and increased scrutiny, regulatory which seems to all be by design by the SEC and the regulators. Right. The report published by Decrypt September 19th drew its conclusions from court documents associated with the ongoing lawsuit involving Binance and the United States. SEC, according to the news agency's interpretation, the Binance US legal representatives asserted in the documents that BAM Management US Holdings had issued a quarter billion dollar convertible note to CZ back in December. CZ, however, challenged the accuracy of the report when he tweeted the following. The amount of wrong information is just they got the direction wrong. I loaned 250 million dollars to BAM a while back, not the other way around, and have not taken it back. The Binance CEO clarified that the loan arrangement was, in fact, the opposite of what was reported in the post. The exec explained that he had extended a 250 million dollar loan to BAM Management and asserted that he had not yet received the payment. So there's nothing new under the sun. Just more FUD, it seems like, fam. The legal battle has taken a toll on Binance US, which saw a flurry of employee departures. The US SEC alleged that Binance was not cooperating in the ongoing probe and even claimed that BAM refused to make essential witnesses available for deposition. Concerns were also raised on CEFFU, which happens to be a custody service offered by Binance's international arm, Binance Holdings Ltd. The SEC's filing claimed that the platform appeared to be in violation of a previous agreement designed to prevent the transfer of the assets abroad. And despite the scathing attacks by the financial regulator, Binance scored a small win this week. The SEC's motion to approve an inspection into Binance US was denied by the USDC District Judge, Zia Farokhia. So there you have it. I mean, the ongoing FUD will more than likely continue, as obviously Binance is the largest crypto exchange in the world and regulators seem to have a problem with them and want to go after them for whatever apparent reason. So, like I said, hopefully in the end, you know, truth is revealed and the real story versus all the FUD and, you know, the manipulation of the price action and all the shenanigans we continue to witness in the market. And with that being shared, now let's dive into the Binance CEO, CZ and his 10 million dollar price prediction, as well as him predicting that Bitcoin price action could even a thousand X from here, sending the Bitcoin price parabolic to 26 or even 27 million dollars per coin. Let's break this baby down, shall we? Here we go. JV, have you ever heard of him? A crypto YouTube influencer from Crypto News Alerts remembered CZ's prediction. You're damn right I did. The Bitcoin would reach 10 million per coin. JV referred to the statement in a recent video uploaded on YouTube where he analyzes various aspects of the Bitcoin market development. Now, JV looked back at CZ's Bitcoin prediction while analyzing the Bitcoin CEO's recent Twitter comments. And in a Q &A session on July 5th, CZ addressed several issues, including Binance's reaction to the ongoing regulatory scrutiny. He also spoke about the rising interest of institutional investors in crypto currencies, as well as the proposed BlackRock spot Bitcoin ETF. CZ made the 10 million dollar price prediction back in 2021. In fact, I have the article already pulled up and I'm going to be reading word for word what he shared. Following MicroStrategy's announcement, allocating Bitcoin for the corporate strategy, CZ based his analysis on the possibility of several corporate companies, major institutions across the world, allocating just one percent of their corporate treasury into Bitcoin. And according to CZ, that would lead to a thousand X growth in the value of BTC. JV highlighted CZ's welcoming approach to institutional investors in the Bitcoin ecosystem, and CZ noted that advantages in traditional finance firms they bring to the crypto industry, despite concerns about their intentions clashing with Bitcoin's decentralized nature. And according to JV, CZ identified two key factors driving Binance's strategy for the next 18 months. They include the upcoming Bitcoin halving event now less than six months out, as well as, you know, we could be seeing a Bitcoin ETF here in the near future. The Bitcoin community expects the next halving to occur in April of 2024. Now quoting CZ word for word from the initial interview he made on Bloomberg Radio predicting a potential 1000 X increase in the Bitcoin price action. So here's what he had to say. Right now, I think only 11 companies again, this is right around the time that MicroStrategy announced putting Bitcoin on its balance sheet. They announced having allocating some talking about Bitcoin, like usually less than one percent of their corporate treasury to Bitcoin. And we think that it is most likely what caused the initial price rise. I think MicroStrategy's Michael Saylor started it first, but there are six hundred and fifty thousand companies in the world, like relatively established companies in the world, and their treasury is huge. Preach. So if all of them talking about these major institutions only allocated just one percent to Bitcoin, we are going to see, I don't know, 1000 X more growth in the Bitcoin price. And if they allocate more than one percent, then it's going to be even bigger. So I think people don't quite get the magnitude of the wave that is about to hit us. Now, let's run that math one more time. Fam, today's price is roughly twenty six thousand five hundred times that by one thousand. He's talking about a twenty six and a half million dollar Bitcoin price action. The potential if they only put one percent of their strategic reserves into Bitcoin, you do the math. If it's five X and five percent, what are we talking? One hundred and twenty million dollar Bitcoin price. Just saying this is coming from CZ, the world's richest man in crypto. So very powerful words indeed. Let's get back to this prediction of what he shared. So the finance CEO estimates that the flagship crypto can go up anywhere from nineteen hundred percent to twenty thousand percent from the current price levels from the time he made the prediction. And he goes on to share with price predictions. It is really, really difficult. I think it can go to, I don't know, one million dollars, ten million dollars. It is very hard to tell. And again, if we literally did a thousand X from today's price, we're talking twenty six and a half million per BTZ. So CZ also reveals that the exchange is onboarding new users as an at an unprecedented sustained rate during the bull run, outpacing its user growth during the twenty seventeen bull run. So again, this was during the twenty twenty one bull run. Here's what he had to share. Just to give people the idea, in twenty seventeen, when Bitcoin hit the peak of about 20 G's, we were seeing three hundred thousand new registered users per day. And that only happened for a couple of days. And that kind of trailed off and became slower. Now we're seeing sustained new user registrations above the peak and sustained like for over two to three months. So could you imagine running the world's largest crypto exchange and having over three hundred thousand new registered users every single day for like 90 days straight? That is insanity. And that's the previous market. I think twenty twenty four is likely going to outpace the previous market as Bitcoin becomes a common household name and as Bitcoin game theory continues in full effect. You have presidential candidates making Bitcoin a big determining factor. We have people like Ron DeSantis, Kennedy Jr., Javier Malay over in Argentina. So naturally, it's just going to create more commotion and positive catalysts for Bitcoin as we move forward into twenty twenty four. So, I mean, fireworks are ahead. Let me know how you feel. We're likely to finish out this year by December of twenty twenty three. Where do you feel the Bitcoin price action is likely to be?

A highlight from The Evolution of Enterprise-class Call Recording Technology, CallCabinet Podcast
"Hello, everybody. This is Doug Green. I'm the publisher of Telecom Reseller, and today we're going to be doing a podcast, The Evolution of Enterprise Class Call Recording Technology. And we have with us again, Ron Ramancic, who's the Chief Strategy Officer at Call Cabinet. Ron, thank you for joining me today. Thanks, Doug. Pleasure to join you. Well, I'm really excited that we're going to be able to do to talk about this topic very timely. So let's start off with, you know, can you give us an overview of compliance call recording and where it all started? What does that mean? Sure. Well, without going into too much history, I'll go back a little bit. So digital call recording started right around the turn of the century, which sounds kind of bit archaic, but right around the late 90s and early 2000s as on premise systems. As call recording became more of a general business initiative, the focus was around specific markets and specific solutions at the time. Things like contact centers, dispute resolution, financial transactions, as well as air traffic control, government and public safety. So it was really geared around resolving certain specific items as well as being able to, you know, be able to go back and look at different different conversations that were taking place to be able to track events that may have occurred. As technology evolved, call recording became more of a data source rather than an obligation to track interactions. So contact centers were the first to utilize call recording for quality assurance and assess how their agents perform within with customers. However, it was limited as premise based systems only allowed for small sampling of calls rather than in the complete experience. So the reason being is that most of those premise based systems were all configured based on maximum throughput. So in the early days, contact centers, as an example, if they had a thousand agents, they may only be sampling maybe 20 percent or roughly 200 agents across that. So they're getting a very small snippet of that data. It again, it was a technology limitation, and as cloud evolved, though, and cloud based systems continue to grow, those limitations went away. And the reason why they went away is because you have now the ability in the SAS model to be able to expand beyond those capabilities, right? You're able to have a per seat model, which allowed the customers themselves to be able to now sample all thousand agents as opposed to 200 agents and get a more a better picture of what's going on in the contact center. The other thing that has happened with cloud systems and cloud based systems is that limitations and new technologies were introduced, or I was going to say limited those limitations disappeared and new technologies such as screen capture, video calls, omni channel environments and voice analysis became more prevalent in daily operations across conversations in typical contact center. So no longer does the technology limit the amount of data that could be consumed along with the cost dropping in these technologies in the SAS world. So it made it more cost effective to capture and analyze all customer experiences across the enterprise itself. So, you know, data privacy is a big requirement in call recording. So, you know, can you give us some insight about that? Yeah, data privacy is huge right now. And, you know, everybody's talking about what's happening in the data world and being able to certify themselves in cybersecurity. So data privacy and security is a critical driver for call recording. Not no longer are companies recording for convenience purposes, but rather as a method to keep customer conversations safe, secure and easily accessible. When you call into contact centers, you call into a company and may say this conversation may be recorded for compliance purposes. And the reason being is they want to be able to protect the customer's data. Legislation such as HIPAA require that all patient data is protected from being disclosed to unauthorized individuals. Whether it is a stored recording, a screen captured from a health care or insurance workers desk or written information passed through email or fax. Violations are strict and the organization could be fined anywhere from one hundred dollars to fifty thousand dollars per incident. That's huge. In the financial world, just as recently as August 8th, there was an article that was published stating that the SEC and the CFTC issued fines of five hundred and forty nine million dollars against six financial firms over the failure to maintain and preserve communications from their employees personal devices. The firm's employees communicated business matters over text messaging applications and voice conversations on the personal devices where firms failed to maintain and preserve the data in accordance with compliance laws. Before this, the SEC up to that point had issue fines of up to one point one billion dollars between today and twenty twenty one. So, needless to say, not by by not recording and storing data securely financial organization institutions put themselves in jeopardy with this. So the key to protecting data is having a proper cybersecurity program, such as ISO twenty seven thousand one or twenty seven thousand two or 18, et cetera. That sets specific standards in product development, encryption methods and standards, as well as network security and consistent vulnerability testing. Companies like Call Cabinet have implemented those standards internally that far exceed the necessary requirements to ensure our customers data is protected, not only for compliance reasons, but also from cyber attacks. As an example, Call Cabinet, in addition to Microsoft's blob storage encryption, which we utilize, also encrypts each individual call with an AES 256 bit encryption with a rotating methodology. That means if a hacker were to access our storage, they would need to figure out also not only the blob storage piece of it, but also each and every individual call would have to be they'd have to figure out the encryption around that, making it almost impossible to penetrate, which is why it never happened in the call cabinet world. So, Ron, what are the current industry drivers and also latest innovations? So latest innovations again, cloud call, cloud recording has opened up businesses to do more at a fraction of the cost as earlier premise based systems. So SaaS model now allows the customer to cost effectively listen to and protect conversations on customer touch points across many departments, departments such as HR, sales, obviously, customer support, obviously, tech support, billing, a wide range of different areas, which definitely have the customer touch points. With Call Cabinet's cloud technology, where our service is built into the fabric of Microsoft Azure, we can provide our customers with unlimited scalability across multiple communication platforms as well, such as collaboration platforms, hosted PBXs, and even premise based PBX platforms, all providing a single user interface. So now we can, if the environment is a mixed environment, which we're starting to see more and more of as people migrate from the premise to the cloud, that same user experiences is handled across all platforms itself. Also, should this customer have the need to scale up or scale down in size, let's say by seasonal demand, a SaaS platform such as ours provides that capability without having to pay for scale during down periods. The key to migrating to cloud technology is not losing customer data. Typically, if a customer is migrating from a premise based recording system, they are beholden to the recording vendor to keep that data active until it ages out or the customer doesn't need the data anymore. The reason is that most premise based systems have their own proprietary file format that recordings are stored in, thus mandating that the existing system needs to be used. That's an additional expense on the part of the customer to just store and playback the data should it ever be necessary. We eliminate that expense by migrating that data and normalizing it, making it usable data for the customer while storing it in our cloud. Now the customer owns the data, not the recording vendor. So with cloud technology, we have just saved the customer from having to pay for a system they no longer use and have taken the old data and made it usable for that particular customer. As I mentioned earlier, call recording has become a method of capturing customer data. What's difficult to do is to ingest what a person says, as well as the intonation of how they set it into a usable format where the data is accurately depicted and can be analyzed to determine business insights. Call Kevin's voice analytics technology can extract business insights, provide analysis across many communication points while keeping the customer's data safe and secure in our network. Our analytics can automatically evaluate contact center agents, manage customer and employee experience, and offer a fixed low cost SaaS solution. So, you know, as we conclude our podcast today, could you give us an overview? What does the future of compliance call recording look like? Sure. Thanks, Doug. The future is here. The evolution of AI, along with communication analysis and compliance is driving a need for all businesses, large and small, to listen to how their employees are communicating with the outside world. Both Microsoft and Cisco have announced pure collaboration and the use of AI to protect business and personal information while using platforms such as Teams and Webex. You've heard the announcements. Cisco made that announcement last week regarding Webex and Microsoft had also made the announcement a few weeks prior to that. We are on the forefront of this by collaborating with both Microsoft and Cisco to offer an AI driven solution that can monitor conversations and help protect against data loss and driving workflows from our voice analytics to help drive DLP systems. Data loss protection is a huge, huge issue right now. And, you know, there is proprietary information that can possibly be leaked through conversations with customers, with other individuals and even possibly competitors. And the goal is to be able to make sure all that data doesn't leak out to the public when it shouldn't leak out to the public. So technologies AI such as Microsoft Co -Pilot and Azure, Azure OpenAI are technologies that access data and drive workflows. They are driven by text based data where companies like Call Cabinet can take advantage of our voice analytics capability to drive those technologies. What we do is we turn spoken voice into that text along with the scoring of intonation through emotion and sentiment to be able to take that data, push it towards Microsoft Co -Pilot, push it towards Azure OpenAI and be able to manage those conversations accordingly. We can also push that data out to DLP systems where those systems can monitor those particular conversations and provide alerts if there's essential DLP leakage somewhere along the way. The use cases are really unlimited. However, with the expansion of financial regulations, we see security being at the top of the list in driving compliance standards and applying regulations against conversations. So, Ron, I really want to thank you for joining me today. This has been a very interesting eye opening and your opening conversation. A good start, I think, for people to do maybe a deeper dive into some of these matters. Where can we learn more? Where can we learn more about Call Cabinet and some of the things we talked about today? You can visit us at callcabinet .com. A lot of our data is listed there. If you want to find out more and get deeper into the conversations, we have some white papers online as well as you feel free to contact us and we'll be able to sit down and have those conversations with you.
