A highlight from 1447: Max Keiser: Bitcoin will reach $10,000,000 per coin
"In today's show, I'll be breaking down the latest Bitcoin technical analysis and this just in, there are now nearly 40 million Bitcoin addresses in profit, which is a new record. So congratulations and shout out to my long term hodlers. Also in today's show, as I shared, the Bitcoin white paper turns 15 years old today as Satoshi Nakamoto's legacy lives on. Let's go. Also in today's show, crypto asset manager Valkyrie amends their spot Bitcoin ETF filing. I'll be breaking down this latest update, as well as a Bitcoin rally to $50 ,000 per coin is now on the cards as the Bitcoin bull market arrives. According to top crypto analysts, I'll be sharing his timeline. Also in today's show, Max Keiser joins the Alex Jones show to predict the latest Bitcoin trends and price predictions and warns of suicide bankers that will destroy the world. Not only that, but Max Keiser gives Alex Jones a simple, very simple five question Bitcoin quiz for 10 ,000 Bitcoin worth $350 million in today's terms. I'll be breaking all this down for you. We'll also be taking a look at the overall crypto market, all this plus so much more in today's show. Yo, what's good crypto fam? This is first and foremost, a video show. So if you want the full premium experience with video, visit my YouTube channel at Cryptonewsalerts .net. Again, that's crypto news alerts dot net. Welcome, everyone, to podcast episode number fourteen hundred and forty seven of the Cryptonewsalerts pod. Today is Bitcoin's birthday, October 31st, 2023. Bitcoin is 15 years old and I'm your fearless host, JV. We have lots to cover, as we always do. So let's kick it off with our market watch. As we can see, you should be able to see Bitcoin barely in the green, holding on to thirty four thousand four hundred support. 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 Introducing: History Daily
"Hello, my friends. This is Professor Greg Jackson, and today I am most pleased to bring you a little off -week treat. The tale of the Zimmerman Telegram, as told by the prolific history podcaster, the not one and only, and definitely not a U .S. Senator, Lindsey Graham. As many of you know, Lindsey is a dear friend of mine. He is the host of several podcasts, such as American History Tellers, American Scandal, American Elections Wicked Game, and the particularly brilliant historical audio drama, 1865. His company, Airship, does HTDS's sound design, and we have had many a long conversation about history, podcasting, presentation, you name it. All of which I credit to my growth as a podcaster. Well, all that to say, Lindsey also hosts History Daily, a podcast that delivers a relatively short episode every weekday, whose topic is always a meaningful historical event that happened on that precise date, be it a few years or a century ago. It's a wonderful way to make what might feel like just another ordinary day come to life as you learn about significant events on their anniversaries. For today's taste of History Daily, though, I'm letting the actual date slide to bring you a World War I related topic, the Zimmerman Telegram. I hardly have to tell you about its significance since we learned about it here on HTDS, but I hope you enjoyed Lindsey's telling in an episode dedicated solely to that event. And if you do enjoy it, be sure to check out History Daily wherever you get your podcasts. Here we go. It's a foggy early morning on August 26, 1914, just one month into World War I. A German cruiser cuts through the Baltic Sea, laying mines near the entry to the Gulf of Finland. The SMS Magdeburg works under the cover of darkness, steaming along until it comes to a shuddering halt. On deck, the captain curses as the ship runs aground in the shallow waters off a nearby island. The captain directs his crew to start throwing any unnecessary equipment overboard. He's confident that if they can lighten the cruiser's load, it'll pull off the shoals. But despite their best efforts, the ship doesn't come free. So left with no choice, the captain orders his crew to start lowering the ship's dinghings. As the men prepare for evacuation, the captain's mind goes immediately to the most precious cargo on board, a set of three code books used to write and decipher German communications. Quickly, the captain orders a signalman to fetch the books. But as he awaits the crew members' return, he gazes out at the horizon. A break develops in the fog, and the captain sees two unfamiliar vessels bearing down on his boat. As they draw closer, he recognizes them as Russian ships. As the enemy ships open fire on the Magdeburg, the captain rushes to locate the signalman he sent to retrieve the code books. When he finds them, the captain orders the signalman to take the books, row out to deep water, and throw them overboard. The captain looks on as the signalman boards a dinghy with code books in hand and is slowly lowered down. But before the boat can reach the water below, incoming Russian shells explode all around it. The captain looks on in horror as the signalman is struck and tumbles into the sea, the code books still clutched to his chest. After the brief encounter in the Baltic Sea, the Russians rescue drowning German sailors and the bodies of those that cannot be saved. And when they drag aboard one body, still clasped within the dead man's arms, will be the invaluable keys to Germany's communications system. The Russians keep two of the three German code books they recovered from the SMS Magdeburg, but they pass the other onto the British government. They use it to establish a top -secret code -breaking operation. And armed with the code book, and others like it they will later seize, British intelligence is able to decipher most German messages. But no intercepted note will be as consequential as the Zimmerman Telegram, an inflammatory document that will persuade the United States to declare war on Germany after its contents are revealed to the U .S. government on February 24, 1917.

A highlight from The Continued Fallout of the Tornado Cash Arrests
"Welcome back to The Breakdown with me, NLW, it's a daily podcast on macro, Bitcoin and the big picture power shifts remaking our world. What's going on, guys, it is Saturday, August 26th, and that means it's time for the weekly recap. Before we get into that, however, if you are enjoying The Breakdown, please go subscribe to it, give it a rating, give it a review. Or if you want to dive deeper into the conversation, come join us on the Breakers Discord. You can find a link in the show notes or go to bit .ly slash breakdown pod. Well, friends, welcome back to the weekend. We have a lot of follow ups today. For a summer week, there was kind of a lot going on. And so let's dive in with a follow up to the most dramatic news of the week, which was certainly the indictment of Roman Storm and Roman Semenov in relation to their operation of the tornado cash protocol. You will remember that the pair are charged with conspiracy to commit money laundering, conspiracy to commit sanctions violations and conspiracy to operate an unlicensed money transmitting business. Storm has been arrested and has already been granted bail. Semenov remains at large, but was added to the sanctions list personally. Now, the arrest caused an outcry across the crypto industry, with many appalled at the apparent attack on privacy, open source development and crypto infrastructure more broadly. Others, however, pointed out, and this was especially after the initial takes had cooled, that contrary to the popular industry take, the pair seemed to have not just been charged for merely writing code, but rather for willfully aiding money laundering by North Korean hackers, the Lazarus Group. Cryptocritic Row Rider tweeted, Now, of course, that claim and that assertion will be subject to much test in courtrooms in the future to come. The indictment has definitely raised serious questions about the government's approach to dealing with cybercrime. Some, for example, are suggesting that this represents a chapter in an ongoing fight against digital privacy. Rohan Gray, assistant law professor at Willamette, who is no fan usually of cryptocurrencies, said, I generally strongly agree with the claim that profiteering off these platforms makes the moral high ground much harder to maintain. But one, governments are considering criminalizing end to end encryption and other privacy tools, and two, PGP Zimmerman prosecution happened, so not sure fully convinced. Another topic of conversation is that some are pointing out that despite over four years of sanctions against North Korea, and even longer against other nations, little appears, at least from the outside, to change. DeFi Pulse co -founder Scott Lewis said, Now, at the very least, this case should see some of these issues robustly defended in court. Roman Storm has retained premier crypto criminal defense lawyer Brian Klein. Klein defended Virgil Griffith when he was accused of violating sanctions by traveling to North Korea to deliver a conference presentation about using crypto to evade sanctions. He has also represented Eric Voorhees, Kraken, and Block One in their dealings with the SEC. Attorney Collins Belton writes, Now, in an ironic demonstration of how impotent the approach of going after developers rather than hackers is, shortly after the arrest of Roman Storm, the FBI warned that Lazarus Group was attempting to cash out. On Tuesday, the FBI put out a warning to crypto firms that the Lazarus Group had moved $40 million worth of Bitcoin and were likely seeking to sell. The agency released a list of newly funded wallets which had aggregated funds, behavior that typically occurs as a prelude to those funds being deposited on an exchange. The Bitcoin was traced from the recent $60 million Al Halpo hack and the $37 million Coin Spade exploit. Crypto security expert Taylor Monahan was furious about the whole thing. In one instance, she tweeted, More crisply, she wrote, D .P .R .K. moved another $40 million literally as the U .S. arrested its own builders and circle jerked around how much they've checked notes impacted D .P .R .K.'s ability to move money. Moving on to our next update for an industry beleaguered by exchange folly, all eyes have been on and continued to be on Binance, and it appears that payment firms continue to turn away from them. On Thursday, Reuters reported that MasterCard is planning to sever ties with Binance and halt crypto card services in Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, and Bahrain. The shutdown will affect Binance linked MasterCards, which allow users to spend their crypto. MasterCard will close the service on September 22nd, and the firm said that other crypto linked cards will not be affected. One bright spot this week for Binance was the announcement that MoonPay would offer Binance U .S. a solution to its lack of payment rails. The firm will allow customers to purchase Tether using debit cards, credit cards, Apple Pay or Google Pay, and then convert it into crypto using the exchange. Users will also be able to off ramp into U .S. bank accounts. Binance U .S. was, of course, forced to suspend dollar deposits after losing banking partnerships in June, going crypto only since then. The big question will be whether there are any customers left. Binance U .S. is currently recording just 10 million in daily volume, according to CoinGecko. By way of comparison, Coinbase has around 1 .15 billion in daily volume, and Kraken records about 500 million. Now, both of those firms operate internationally, so have some additional volume from offshore, but the difference is still clearly several orders of magnitude. Another Binance story that people are trying to make heads or tails of is that leaked communications from Binance show that staff have been contacting crypto projects with low liquidity over the past week. The exchange has asked for details of market making arrangements. Binance further asked if projects would be willing to place between 1 and 5 percent of their circulating supply in savings accounts on the exchange, which are subject to being lent out to traders. The rationale is that additional supply ready to be borrowed could allow traders to boost liquidity. If projects did not want to disclose their market making relationship or contribute tokens, Binance asked for an explanation why. A Binance spokesperson said that this outreach was part of a, quote, ongoing risk management initiative and claimed that this communication only reached a small number of firms with low liquidity, which could expose users to risks, including, they said, potential market manipulation. The spokesperson said, quote, The main purpose of our risk management outreach is to encourage project teams to take the recommended steps required to enhance their liquidity protection. Engaging market maker support is one way to enhance such protection. Now, for all of the speculation that there are nefarious explanations for this or that it represents Binance running out of coins, Matt Batsenelos, the founder of Glass Market, seemed to think it was perfectly normal. He said, We see this as a net positive for exchanges to be monitoring market makers to ensure they're providing liquidity. Speaking of exchanges and liquidity, the FTX bankruptcy team has tapped Galaxy Digital to assist with asset management as the firm begins to look at liquidations of their crypto holdings. FTX wants to begin selling, staking and hedging its crypto holdings, which make up over three billion dollars of the estate's assets. The plan at this stage is to return funds to customers in fiat rather than in Bitcoin or ETH, so hopes that some careful trading can help maximize value for creditors. In a court filing made on Wednesday, FTX outlined their plan. The filing explained that, quote, hedging Bitcoin and Ether will allow the debtors FTX to limit potential downside risk prior to the sale of such Bitcoin or Ether. Staking certain digital assets will inure to the benefit of the estates and ultimately creditors by generating low risk returns on otherwise idle digital assets, end quote. The firm signaled that the SEC approved investment advisor, which forms part of the Galaxy Digital Group, as an appropriate partner in this endeavor, stating that, quote, Galaxy Asset Management has extensive experience in areas relevant to digital asset management and trading, including with respect to the types of transactions and investment objectives contemplated. The filing also disclosed that FTX is concerned that selling all of their crypto holdings in one go would impact markets dramatically. They proposed placing selling decisions with expert market participants to figure out how to mitigate that risk through weekly sale limits or other trading strategies. Galaxy Digital had also previously disclosed that it had tens of millions tied up in FTX when it collapsed, raising questions of conflict of interest, which were addressed in the filing. The request is currently before the bankruptcy court, which will need to approve the decision before the plan can move forward. The hearing is scheduled for September 13th, and under the proposed plan, FTX will give creditors 10 days notice before the dumping begins. Summing up the feeling of just about everyone was Hal Press at Northrock LP, just what we needed weekly sales of half a billion aggregate amount of majors. Still, the best tweet award goes to CMS Holdings, who wrote, Do we think Novo gets a sleeve of the FTX bankruptcy legal team's logos? But with that, let's shift over to more positive, forward looking stories. Bitfinex have announced the successful API integration with Vakif Bank, one of the largest banks in Turkey. This will allow Turkish customers to deposit Lira into exchange accounts for free directly from their bank accounts. Now, hold aside whatever feelings you might have about Bitfinex or Tether or anything associated with them. Coming from the perspective of Turkish citizens, this is a positive development. This week, the Central Bank of Turkey surprised analysts by raising its main policy interest rate from 17 .5 % to 25 % in a bid to tackle rampant inflation. Economists polled by Reuters had expected a smaller hike to 20%. The central bank recently revised its annual forecast from 22 .3 % to 58 % inflation for this year, with official statistics for July showing inflation at 47 .8 % on an annualized basis, meaning these rates are still massively negative. The Lira saw peak official inflation over 80 % last year after President Erdogan fired three consecutive central bank governors between 2019 and 2021 as inflation shifted up above 15%. Perhaps unsurprisingly, then, after years of monetary dysfunction, Turkey has become a major market for crypto adoption. Indeed, internal Binance documents leaked earlier this month showed that Turkey was the third largest market for the exchange behind China and South Korea. Bitfinex has been pushing hard into regions undergoing currency distress lately, last month, for example, launching a peer -to -peer platform for users in Argentina, Colombia, and Venezuela. Another company in the news this week having changed the arrangement around USDC is, of course, Circle. Circle have announced support for USDC across six additional blockchains. USDC will now be available on Polygon, Base, Polkadot, NEAR, Optimism, and Cosmos via the Noble Network. This expansion of availability was hinted at earlier in the week during the announcement that Coinbase would be taking an equity stake in Circle. As part of the announcement, the company said they would be winding down the Center Consortium, which was a self -regulatory body which governed USDC, and that Circle will now act as the sole governance organization for USDC. These new additions bring the number of blockchains using USDC up to 15. Now, some viewed the week's moves as an attempt to shore up USDC, which has been rapidly losing market share to USDT over the past five months. USDC's circulating supply has dropped by 40 % since the banking crisis in March, which temporarily threatened a small portion of Circle's reserves. That said, the stablecoin is still firmly the second most popular stablecoin in the industry with a current supply of $25 .8 billion. Aviva Litan, a senior blockchain analyst with Gardener, questioned whether adding networks would stem the bleeding for USDC, stating that, The bottom line is money is flowing out of the chains, and support for more chains won't make it flow in. However, one integration that was also announced this week could potentially see some moves in that area. On Wednesday, Solana Labs announced that they would be integrating their Solana Pay Network into e -commerce giant Shopify. This will allow online shoppers to check out using USDC. Josh Fried, head of commerce business development at the Solana Foundation, said, When thinking about this integration, we chose a stablecoin because merchants and consumers think in dollars. It creates a much simpler entry point when pricing is in a currency consumers and merchants naturally understand. Jeremy Allaire, the CEO of Circle, tweeted, Maybe there's something to stablecoin payments after all. Companies whose core business is extracting 3 to 4 % on merchant fees will face a reckoning in the decade to come. Maybe merchant processing fees will settle in at something closer to 20 to 30 basis points, built around tech fees. Looking globally, HashKey will begin offering crypto trading to retail customers in Hong Kong from Monday. The firm was the first crypto exchange to obtain a license to service individual traders under the newly introduced regulatory regime. Initially, only Bitcoin and Ethereum markets will be offered, and retail customers will be limited to investing up to 30 % of their net worth. That restriction, obviously, is a new part of regulations that could prove extremely difficult to enforce. HashKey's CEO, Livio Wang, said of the limited offering, We thought it'd be better to be more prudent. In a bearish market environment, there could be higher risks trading the so -called altcoins, so we hope to offer tokens that come with relatively lower risks at first. The exchange will support deposits in Hong Kong dollars and US dollars. Wang also said that customers from mainland China will be strictly prohibited using IP bans. Lastly, closing on a shifting of tone, Dan Morhead is done with crypto winter. The Pantera Capital founder published a letter on Tuesday which noted just how long crypto markets have spent in the red. The period from August last year until this June was the longest period of negative year -over -year returns for Bitcoin, clocking in at a brutal 15 months. Prior to that, the longest period of negative returns was in 2015 at just under a year. The negativity can't last, according to Morhead, who wrote, Our view is that we've seen enough. There's just so long markets can be down. We believe the combination of recent positive events, the XRP ruling and endorsements by BlackRock at all, in addition to the Bitcoin halving expected to occur in April 2024, provide a strong setup for the next bull market in digital assets. And I will say, friends, on this late summer weekend, if that's just hopium, hand me the pipe. Until next time, be safe and take care of each other.
Charges in NYC chokehold death may hinge on 'reasonableness'
"Calls continue for charges against the marine veteran in the chokehold death of Jordan Neely on a New York City subway. At his national action network, how justice rally Saturday, reverend Al sharpton said a grand jury needs to hear the case of Daniel penny. What you will do if you do not prosecute him in my judgment.

New York City public advocate jumani Williams echoes calls for an arrest and charges against penny.

Greg Kelly Describes the Marxist Origins of BLM
"Welcome back. I'm talking to Greg Kelly. I hope you can spell it. Justice for all is the book how the left is wrong about law enforcement, I hope Greg Kelly, that this book becomes your campaign biography when you run for mayor of New York. People need to pray about that. Let's talk about one of the few things that people have the guts to talk about is the Marxist origins of BLM and who Barack Obama is. And it's because of all this kind of weird white guilt that people have, which is really, it's just a form of cowardice, really. And they're kind of proud of the virtue of being guilty, which is preposterous. It's just fundamentally wrong. But talk to us about what you know about the origins of BLM and about the rise of Barack Obama. Well, BLM actually came about in the aftermath of what they characterize as the murder of Trayvon Martin. Now Trayvon Martin was not murdered. He was killed in self defense. George Zimmerman was attacked by Trayvon Martin, who Trayvon Martin was not some innocent kid with skittles. He was an aspiring gangbanger. His social media was filled with references to violence, sexual violence, he was, he was a bad guy. He was a bad guy. And that narrative, as you know, was hijacked by the left and it was a perfect opportunity for Barack Obama. After he was elected in 2008, 91% of African Americans voted for him and that plummeted to about 68% in 2011. That's what polls were showing. He was losing black support, drastically, because the black community's plight did not improve in any appreciable way after he became president. They were blaming him. Barack Obama chose to go all in on victim psychology. He had always been rather ambivalent and a little bit sensitive about his race and his identity. He says it out loud, you know, and my white and my black, the black people view me as white, they view me with suspicion. He writes about this in as many personal memoirs and autobiographies. He decided to go all in with the victim culture,

Critical Race Theory: What Is It?
"Is critical Race theory? Yes. So critical Race theory began around the 19 seventies with the law professor Derrick Bell and a couple of other legal scholars trying to understand the ways. That race and American law intersected how history of slavery and segregation was sort of codified and continue to influence American law Today. Adam Harris is a staff writer at the Atlantic. His most recent article was titled The GOP S Critical Race Theory Obsession, Harris says. One of the first instances we started to see critical race theory being used as a political bludgeon was in the early 19 nineties, President Bill Clinton nominated Atlantic near to the Justice Department. She was a legal scholar who done a lot of work and voting rights and conservatives effectively used her previous work in voting rights to sort of tag her as someone who was arguing for racial quotas in voting for the amount of seats that people should hold on city councils. They also tagged her as championing a radical school of thought. Called Critical Race Theory. Amid mounting pressure from conservatives, President Clinton has withdrawn his nomination of Lani Guinier to head up the Justice Department's civil rights division, claiming veneers writings lent themselves to views that he could not embrace the president cut her loose rather than fight a divisive battle on Capitol Hill. From there you have A kind of dormant period. It's not really until after George Zimmerman was acquitted in the murder of Trayvon Martin, the Jesse Jackson like race profiteer race grievance industry says everything's about race. America's a racist nation. You see a mention of critical race theory after a video surfaces of President Barack Obama hugging Derek Bell in 1990, you know When he was a law student at Harvard Law. The president is actually kind of aligning himself here with a well known campus radical. There is a conservative back last thing that he believes in this radical critical race theory.

I think it comes from generations of you know. America's changed around us. What worked in our grandparents day and our parents day doesn't necessarily work anymore heading you know.

We need those us to round out our thinking and debate and discuss scripture. And i never thought about it that way. I never thought about it that way. I'm not thinking for a moment.

"Instant germination all happen in one day. we wonder. Why isn't it like this today. Why it's hard today but for paul in acts seventeen. It was much more difficult now. Paul had to remove obstructions he had the till the soil. He had to prepare it. And you know what. Paul began with their gods. He had knowledge of their poets. he was praising zeus. Can you imagine. Trying to reach out to a mormon and say joseph smith even said. Do you even know what. Joseph smith said or reaching out to a muslim well. Muhammed said to build an understanding. The other thing is paul. Did he use logic a manmade god construction with stone. How foolish centered conclusions on. Jesus christ paul used creativity. He wasn't just throwing seat out there. He was thinking now notice. Jesus was a reser is jesus and the resurrection was a hinge pin and both of their methods one true god repent the english author and lay theologian g k chesterton. Gestures chesterton kisses name right Us was from england in the eighteen hundreds and he had a class of students and he said let's assume that all of us are stranded on an island. You know and and all of a sudden shipwreck. We can't get off the island. Nobody knows we're here and he says i'm allowed to have one book. What do i want of course. This is a religious class and all the student. i. I want the bible. I want to bible. And he says why. I wanna book on how to build a boat. I'd like to say that. Are we willing to learn from science and history. Science should not scare us. The true seed is the word of god but we have to be real with different types of soil and different methods of delivery so giving some thought to the soil when evangelizing we need to consider the change in seasons and the soil on reaching out with the gospel keep delivering the same seed but the methods of delivery change so when working with someone we need to pause and think which method of see delivered should be used as a soil. good like in peter's day or does this soil. How other loves like. In paul's day act seventeen is a shallow is soil. Shallow soil needs to be tilled. Before planning this takes time and discernment and holy spirit guidance. I suggest your our job as in america's even more complicated in this. There's another kind of soil prevalent in our culture and it's called contaminated soil. I'd like to submit to you this morning that the soil in america may be very contaminated. There's only one way to deal with contaminated soil and that's dig deeper deal with the real problem the soil same with the seekers. We need to closely examine the soil when working with contaminated soil what are some current soil contaminants that we might be faced with. Recently there was a survey completed of evangeline evangelical christians in america. And when they were asked what do they view. How do they view evangelical christians in america.

MLB All-Star Game yanked from Atlanta over voting law
"This is all things considered. I'm Audie Cornish and I'm Elsa Chang in Los Angeles. Totally unnecessary. That is what a top lieutenant in the Minneapolis Police Department said today about the way that former police officer Derrick Show Vin Pressed his knee into the neck of George Floyd, he testified on the fifth day of Sheldon's murder trial. NPR's Adrian Florido has been covering the proceedings and joins us again from Minneapolis. Hey, Adrian. Hi, Elsa. All right. So today wrapped up the trial's first week, which, as you know, I've been talking about has been packed with so much emotional testimony, like from bystanders who watched Floyd died to first responders who couldn't revive him. But today the trial seemed to shift a little right. Tell us a little bit about that. Yeah. Today, the prosecution worked to build its case that Derrick show Vin used excessive force on George Floyd. And to do that they called Lieutenant Richard Zimmerman to the stand. He is the longest serving police officer in the Minneapolis PD. He's been on the force since 1985. He's the head of the homicide division. And importantly, after George Floyd's death, he was one of the department employees who publicly condemned what show Vin did. Prosecutor Matthew Frank spent time today asking him about the dangers of restraining a suspect by laying them face down. Have you ever in all the years you've been working for the Minneapolis Police department. On been trained. To kneel on the neck of someone who is handcuffed behind their back in a prone position. No, I haven't. Is that if that were done with that be considered force absolutely. What level of force might that be? That would be the top tier the deadly force. Why? Because of The fact that if you need is on a person's neck That can kill him. Not not mincing words. They're obviously right. Well, what exactly did Lieutenant Zimmerman's say about the way show Vin handle George Floyd. So here is the same prosecutor asking Zimmerman a question about what he saw in the body cam footage of George Boyd's arrest. What is your? You know, your View of that use of force during that time period. Totally unnecessary. What do you mean? Well, first of all. Pulling him down to the ground face down. And putting your knee on the neck. For that amount of time. Is just Uncalled for. I saw no reason why The officers felt they were in danger if that's what they felt. And he said, the danger is what show then I would've had to field to justify keeping his his knee on Floyd's neck for that, Monk. E mean it's not every day that you hear. A police officer, especially a senior police officer criticized Another officer, even a former one, right, right? Yeah. But on cross examination, eyes show, Vin's attorney, Eric Nelson, worked to poke holes in his testimony, his main focus being the latitude that police officers are allowed during under the police department's use of force policy when they're responding to incidents, So here's Nelson asking that the same witness a question. You would agree, however, that in the fight for your life generally speaking in a fight for your life, you is an officer are allowed to use whatever force is reasonable and necessary. Correct? Yes. And that could even involve improvisation, agreed. Yes. Minneapolis Police department policy allows a police officer to use whatever means there never are available to him to protect himself and others, right? Yes. The defense attorney there, obviously giving clues about the kind of arguments he's going to make when it's his turn to present his case that show been feared for his life that he was dealing with the dynamic situation. Struggling suspect an angry crowd. And real quick. When do we expect the defense to start calling their own witnesses? Well. The prosecution is expected to wrap up their case by the end of next week. And then it'll be the defense's turn. We expect starting the following week that is NPR's Adrian Florido in Minneapolis. Thank you, Adrian. Thank you, Elsa. Critics say that George is controversial New election law restricts voter access and disproportionately effects people of color and in protest Major League Baseball announced today It will relocate the summer's All Star game and draft out of Georgia and under pressure from voting rights advocates. Major companies like Delta and Coca Cola have issued critical statements. Now. Stetson University law professor Ciara Tourist Spellissy studies the influence of corporations and lawmaking earlier today, I spoke to her about what she found striking about this wave of corporate criticism. One of the things that's remarkable about the new statements from Delta and Coca Cola is that they have changed positions a few days ago. They put out pretty Tepid criticisms and or support for the Georgia legislation, and now that the legislation has become law, and they've been under pressure from voting rights advocates They have changed their tune on. That doesn't happen that often. Let's dig into that a little more, because obviously corporate America lobbies. Statehouses Congress for all kinds of things, right? Can you talk about how aggressive they can be in this area or how reluctant they have been in this area in the past? So corporations have two main ways that they influence policy. One is through corporate donations to particular candidates. They then spend even more money lobbying lawmakers to get the policies that they want. Now, most of the policies that a corporation wants are for its own benefit. No, this is a little bit different because voting rights advocates in Georgia put pressure on corporations not just because they were located in Georgia, but also because they had given money to Some of the politicians who created this regressive Election law in Georgia. Can you talk about a moment in recent history where we've seen corporate activism lead to significant legislative change? I think the biggest Example of this was the 2017 tax cut. And the tax cut was literally for corporations. So you had political donors putting enormous pressure on Members of Congress and the corporate tax rate was cut significantly. Another example is bathroom bills and so by bathroom bills. These are Laws at the state level that direct individuals to only use the bathroom of the gender of their birth. And one of these bathroom bills was passed in North Carolina. The end see double a pulled championship games from North North Carolina. And that got AH lot of attention and and North Carolina. Rolled back that bathroom, Phil. We've been hearing a lot, especially in the last year about corporate responsibility, so to speak. What you going to be looking for going forward to see whether this is Real or not, well, one of the things that we saw after the riots at the Capitol on January 6th. Woz corporations deciding to pull back corporate PAC money from the Republicans who objected to The electoral college votes for Joe Biden. But now there is pressure from the U. S Chamber of Commerce, which is one of the largest trade associations in America. It's also one of the largest Dark money, political spenders in America, and they're urging their members to get back in the political spending game. So one of the things that I will look at After Georgia and after the riots on January, 6th is Do any of these corporations actually changed their political spending behavior. Ciara Torres Spellissy is a professor of law at Stetson University in Gulf Port Florida. Thank you so much for your time. Thank you. There is a new attempt to bring the U. S and Iran back to the 2015 nuclear deal with one The Trump administration left in direct talks are set to begin in Vienna next Tuesday.

"zimmerman" Discussed on Everything Everywhere Daily
"These zimmerman. Who sent the telegram. Was arthur zimmermann. A high ranking official in the german foreign affairs office so basically in the event of war. Germany wanted mexico to open up another front in the war on their border with the united states. They also wanted mexico to contact japan to get them to join the war on their side. This was explosive to say the least the british however were a bit of a dilemma on the one hand. If the telegram were shown to the americans it could be enough to get the united states to join the war on the side of the allies however if it became public that the british had the telegram would let the germans know that they had cracked their code and it would be the end of their ability to intercept german communications as germany would change all their codes however if they showed it to the americans they had to get the americans to believe that the telegram was wine. It was really easy to fake telegrams there were no timestamps ip addresses or even wax seals to validate the message on february first. The germans announced unrestricted submarine warfare again and united states broke off diplomatic relations on february fifth. The telegram had been completely decrypted and it was handed off to the british foreign service the british now had to concoct a story to explain to the americans how they got this without letting them know that they were intercepting american diplomatic communications and without letting the germans know that they had cracked their code. The british new wants. The german message arrived in washington. It would be forwarded to mexico via a commercial telegraph service. Their story was that they had bribed someone working in the mexican office to get a copy of the telegram. They would then say that. They had stolen the decrypted message from the germans in mexico thus covering up the fact that they had known the germans code because the americans would have kept a copy of the encrypted message as it passed through their hands. The british could quietly slip. The americans the german code so they could decrypted themselves to verify its authenticity. The telegram was shown to the americans on february nineteenth.

"By clicking on the link in the show notes to give some background the united states studiously tried to stay out of world war one in fact it pretty much had been a standing policy to avoid european wars since the country was founded george washington said in his farewell address quote. It is true policy to steer clear of permanent alliances with any portion of the foreign world. Unquote thomas jefferson reiterated this in his first inaugural address when he said quote peace commerce and honest friendship with all nations entangling alliances with none unquote in the nineteen sixteen presidential election. The main issue was that of war. The huge war going on in europe and the civil war which was raging south of the border in mexico official. us policy was neutrality. And the biggest campaign. Slogan for woodrow wilson was. He kept us out of the war. Which would turn out to be really ironic and just a few months. Wilson comfortably defeated republican. Charles evans hughes who fun fact is the only sitting supreme court justice ever to have won a party's nomination for president. The american public didn't wanna get involved in the war but they did lean towards the allies. The germans were targeting american shipping and they had sunk the passenger ship lusitania. The british and french desperately wanted the united states to enter the war on their side. The troops and equipment that the us could bring to the war could be decisive in the stalemate meat grinder. That was the western front by the same token the germans desperately did not want the united states entered the war. They were willing to go to great lengths to make sure that didn't happen. Also the last several years had been tense between the united states and mexico. The us occupied the mexican city of veracruz nineteen fourteen and the us army was chasing down poncho via who had been running rates across the mexican border. It was in this environment that the following events took place in january nineteen seventeen. The german diplomatic service needed to send a message to their embassy in mexico with the outbreak of war. The british had all of the german international telegraph cables so the germans had rely on neutral countries to communicate with their diplomatic staff oversees. The country's they used in this case. Sweden and the united states. The germans gave it a coded message to the americans to be passed along to their embassy. In mexico city. The wilson administration had agreed to serve as an intermediary for the germans to show support for american neutrality and keep diplomatic channels open for a negotiated peace which is what wilson had hoped for. The americans didn't have a direct connection from their embassy in berlin to the united states..

I would've just been lying on gina's right right my nipples crazy one of these. I mean you know it's weird having a uterus which i totally have l. o. l. smiley face. Wiki emoji said one of the things that i hated about the show and about Maranda and sammy in general was that they did that. Flirting competition joey. And then then at the other end of the coin they'd be like i don't want to be looked at like you know. I don't want to be objectified. So much and blah blah blah but they literally were having like a competition over could like him the best or the most yet or got there like drew her instagram. Being hot. i don't want to be objectified not my miranda. Because she was hot who she was annoying about. An shibam was like they look like different people. Those pictures look different. They weren't born with tattoos right. He wasn't the model. The model one was annoying me because she made that group. The skinny bitches or queens. That's why she got boehner. Samuels all like what the fuck is that about any queens ever and then like at the end of like you know. I didn't even want to tell everyone that was a model because people just judge me up but yeah sorry that you were bless the being fucking zero you fucking like. oh sorry. Yeah and then like when. She lowered porsche. Pretty sure samuel like cooking. Hey her still laker. And one of my favorite things to was like was reading people's bios in the first thing he said about sammy's he was like. It was like bottle servicemen brains bitches. What the hell is wrong with this girl. I sometimes funny as fuck yeah. I'm trying to think there was like when they got messages from home alley. And it's like here for like two weeks. Yeah and they all were like crying. Their parents like a lot of people's parents send them video. And i'm like what low her two week. Yeah i wish. I was on that show like i would. I would request. Like i don't know like my friend. Putin's the hood like a message on the show wants everybody calling everybody over. Check this out here out imprisoned. We actually. I'd say it's a it's a game show jail. What do you do out. He's in quarantine. I i felt like there was a lot of missed opportunity on the show for them to play the game better because towards the end of it there was only like two people that weren't originals. Right or one person that wasn't in all all the people that were there were originals. And that's kind of like bullshit because then it just goes to show that talk to them longer. It wasn't every new person made that they made it that way because they were like. We need to stick together. Because we're in this together and it's the fuck you are. You're going to have to come down the fact that it came down to five people at the end is kind of bullshit like it's coming out of breeze comes down to recent earlier that no one will play the game. Because i think it's the new people because they can't man somebody nice what they should have done his team and and they should have tried to out. Someone else in dislike lied and try to get in good with everyone else. Did they came out like straight up talking shit about the one guy. He's like he's too nice. Fuck that guy's name up. Something's up and straight up. Call them out. Everyone is like. I didn't like how he called him. Fake and that was mean. But it's like what's the point right right exactly. That was my problem with and a different player in that game would recognize that. And be like okay. I understand the pieces of this is an actual game. Let us remind ourselves of that. it's not just. It was like watching them like force feed us like a group of friends. That will only only be friends like summer camp or the breakfast club. All the people who work good enough to be in the friend group had to watch them be friends at the end. Your god yeah. You're right being in. Like what if i went on this show and i was addict and like literally every message i would just like dick pic sin and like i'd never got kicked off like they were just like i like this guy. He's real real. He's an equal opportunity. Gay showed all the dick into a power. Move which. I gotta respect i. I've put him at four. I would just have an hour. And just like dick pic from september twenty seventeen and ended. The series are like we don't know how that somehow dick pic guy and that guy was real. And i know he's not a threat because i've seen this array i don't know how would you play the game back. What would you do. Well i definitely would want to be a catfish just because i think it's interesting dynamic of like trying to play off of somebody else but like there's something there's something kind of thrilling about like kind of fooling of other people when the stakes are so low. I don't see what's wrong with like totally. Just playing these people's heartstrings. And fucking ruining them like honestly it's a game like don't fucking forget that i don't care i'm fun to be around. I know who. I'm no good friend. I've got friends that i've had for twenty five years. I'm i'm not even that old. You know like. I know what it takes to be a good friend. I'm here to have some fucking fun. So i would absolutely want to be a catfish and really get into the back story of this person. Just dive into like being a different character. A lot of that comes from me being an actor already. Like i went to school for that stuff so like i understand circumstances and that type of thing and and it just like a lot of people could go a lot further with it if they were a little more savvy about how people operate outside of themselves because they were like assad from the pictures. This is really mean other than that. I'm genuine is bro and like that shouldn't matter like this game was just a game to coddle feelings and like it didn't have to be it could be a much more interesting show. I should've given everyone guns.

"Produced by Pete Zimmerman. The other day We told you about a couple of guys from the University of Chicago, Nick Hamburger was one and Zach Schreier was another. They dropped out of U of C to go into business on their own, making an egg based chip instead of you eating something that's flour based or some other product. This was a More protein forward snack. That was good for one of them, Zach because he's diabetic. So while they were eating one day the residue of an egg omelet and noticed the crisp trim on the side. They thought I wanted we could make chips out of this, so they have been Went on shark tank the other day to see if they could get funding and a buy in from one of the sharks. We told you we catch you up on that story. Nick joins us again now on WGN Radio. Nick, Welcome back. How are you? It's great to be back doing well. We had an exciting time last Friday. What was the outcome? Yeah. So we ended up getting a deal from the guest shark who is with Daniel Lubetzky. The founder kind bars on bond. He's investing $200,000 in cash and a $200,000 line of credit. Andre didn't have to give away a crazy amount of the company to which is exciting. So, um, we are thrilled with the outcome was wondering about that. What percentage of the business does he now own? Yeah, 10% Now it sounds reasonable to me if 200,000 plus 200,000 is good for you. Is that a big deal for you $400,000? Yeah, You know, it's it's helpful. We actually have raised other funding as well prior to this, but it always helps to have a little bit more than plan. Obviously, we didn't we run on the show. We didn't put that into our projections that we would Get it. It was kind of just a neck stra bit of cash we weren't planning on. So we're going to spend it on hiring someone for retail sales on dMarc itching to go along with more retail launches. What is being on That show mean for you Suppose I mean, maybe 200,000 isn't the point. It was that you were on shark tank. And they said yes. What's happened since then? Has your phone been ringing? Um, yes, Uh, my email mostly even more than the phone and know exactly the exposure and the business impact is even a bigger deal. There. There now, all of a sudden, he kind of cut out there. Teach. You just switched my air box. But I'm back here makes those receiving the bigger the old man, be the deal itself, and we've had a crazy amount of sales. We've done a third of what we did in 2020 in the six days Now it's in the episode. Say that again. You've done a third of last year's sales in six days. And last year wasn't bad for you. That product we're calling about. It's called Talking about is called Quay Vos, Qu e. V. O s and my spelling that correctly. Yes, exactly Cuevas, and it's a chip The way I described its egg based. You guys were kind enough for somebody did to send us a little case of them, And they're all kinds of different flavors like a honey mustard, A sweet barbecue dill. I went through those I got to tell you when I opened it up. I was a little skeptical. Um, because it's an egg based thing. I don't know. I thought what I had was delicious and maybe it being egg based is helpful to you. But if you said It's we won't tell you what it's based just because it's Dane. Good. That would have been enough for me. It was absolutely tasty. Now, if this is a better choice for me, because or maybe the only choice for me Because it's egg based, more power to you, but at the end of the day, don't you think Nick is got to be really good tasting? I think you've got a home run there. Yeah. No, I'm glad you love them and that you were able to dig into the bags We sent, um exactly like it. You know, if we were in the smoothie category, maybe it can take bad. Get out, you know, but because it's Mac, right? It's gotta taste good, and we've been putting a lot of work into that over the years to keep improving. You were talking to us about the product development to I mean, How old are you, Nick? 22 Pause while we let that sink in. I mean, so you know how much do you know about the development of a food product? Here's some things I'd like to see going forward. Ah, larger chip or a thicker chip. How challenging has that been? Um, you know, it's been tough. It took a over two years at the beginning to get to our first market Ready product and before he was more Even since then, and so. Um, you know, we didn't know a lot about who development but it's been a lot of trial and error and we brought in some consultants when we've needed to on the recipe. Um, but yeah, just trying. I was indifferent radiance really over several years. Because I don't know what the malleability or the connective itty of the tissue is that you're using when you're working with the egg as opposed to flower. You know, we're used to tortilla chips and things like that, and how How that could be shaped and molded any way you want. Your chips are little squares. They are smaller than a wheat thin We things tend to be more wreck failure. We thin so they remind me and shaping consistency mostly of a wheat thin, but maybe just a little smaller.
