"Commerce Looks like this is going to be regulated What does the SEC need to do and what should they not do in attempting to regulate I'll say cryptocurrency instead of specifically Bitcoin the coins themselves How should this work Yeah I think they just need to be cognizant of the power that they have to do both good and evil I'm talking about the SEC now the industry has been asking for some guidance and that means regulation for a decade now simply because especially when crypto first came out we weren't really sure what it was Was it an asset.

China Intensifies Hunt for Cryptocurrency Miners in Hiding

"When the history books are written the actual factual mining ban in china will be a key. Part of the crypto story of twenty twenty one. Remember the first rumblings we got about. China targeting crypto in may we sort of brushed off as more bluster and reconfirmation of old policies. At first it was just the banks reinforcing that they weren't allowed to interact with crypto. And so on and so forth but that ultimately changed and when it changed was when the vice premier made a statement saying that they were going to look into a bitcoin mining ban that signaled to all of the local provinces that this was serious and it also signaled that to the local mining operations that we can we saw one of our biggest drawdowns coming off of the rally between december and april and part of that was that minors were actually liquidating their bitcoin and the theorem to try to give themselves mobility to make decisions quickly. Subsequently of course we've seen one of the most significant if not the most significant hash rate migration in bitcoins history. Much of that has been to the benefit of north america. So far but that as we'll see in a minute could change in either case. The blocks will fees. How has a new report out about how provincial governments in china are dealing with the ban in inner mongolia the development and reform commission has hired a contractor to help it monitor for illegal mining operations. This is interesting because there are reports that some chinese bitcoin and the theory of mining operations have quietly even secretly resumed their operations. This partnership with the contractor suggest that the government is going to stay on the case now one interesting nugget from the bidding process is the government's ten bullet list of the areas that it wants to know about which includes the production and development process of crypto mining domestic and international policy stances and regulatory environment over crypto mining. The initial purpose and policy perks that inner mongolia gave to big data and cloud computing enterprises the cost revenue energy consumption and taxation breakdown of crypto mining operations locally the physical distribution breakdown of krypton mining operations locally techniques for differentiating crypto mining operations from other big data and cloud computing projects analysis of mainstream mining hardware and their energy consumption breakdown relevant legal basis for clearing out crypto mining operations the impact of shutting down mining operations on achieving the carbon neutrality goals and long-term regulatory responding mechanisms over crypto mining operations

We saw some tokens and cryptocurrencies off. A few points this morning but not enough to start an entire twitter debate. The mixed feelings could be due to a lot of things first. Traders are back from the kitchen and analysts. Always have a ton of thuds. Some people think it's inflation some set. It's an upcoming european central bank meeting. But what i want to focus on is a less than ideal jobs report ready. Let's go. I'll start with the good news. We learned that in august overall unemployment declined to five point. Two percent from july's overall employment rate of five point four percent zero point two percent but i will take it because that represents a lot of people that now have paycheck coming in to their mailbox. That's kind of where the good news stops. Though this report we learned that the us economy added only two hundred thirty five thousand jobs in august which was a sharp drop from analysts expectations. But even looking at july's total which was nine hundred forty three thousand jobs to make matters worse fortune actually dig a little deeper and looked at the national women's law center. They say that women only accounted for eleven point nine percent of those jobs in august again. If you look at july women were sixty eight point eight percent of the new jobs. It's your reminder that we aren't back to pre pandemic level employment and that women are disproportionately leaving a now reentering the workforce at alarming rates.

"The taliban seizure of hide that's hand-held interagency identity detection equipment biometric registration and identification devices aroused concern when it was first reported but the risks of that loss while real seem likely to be limited. Mit technology review argues.

A great deal of data was collected in apps. Technology reviews sources tell it that each profile and apps contains at least forty data fields quote. These include obvious personal information such as name date data birth as well as a unique. Id number that connects each profile to a biometric profile kept my the afghan ministry of interior.

"Circle has announced it intends to become a bank fully regulated by the federal reserve. Occ and fdic. Which could make its us. Dc stable coin a defacto central bank digital currency. It's a bit arcane. But this could really be a huge deal. Quoting axios circles. Dream is to become a narrow bank one that shoes fractional reserve banking entirely and instead places all deposits on reserve at the central bank. Only banks can open accounts directly at a central bank which credits them with pure money in circles case the depositors would be holders of us dc and the collateral backing up us dc would be the money on deposit at the fed. Circle would pocket for itself the interest that the fed pays on bank reserves if the dream were to become reality than circle with effectively be issuing a cryptocurrency backed by the fed itself for all intents and purposes a central bank digital currency or cb dc. If circle was allowed to do such a thing then presumably other banks would be too and they would rapidly start competing with each other to pass through most or all of the interests that the fed pays on reserves.

The sale of the tokens has generated close to two hundred million dollars for its partner clubs this year. They've got a good half dozen or so Partner clubs and of course fans who buy them and then try to sell them for more than they paid them for them. And there's a brisk business in that trading volumes before messy signed with. Pse reached one point two billion dollars so giving messy a bunch of them gives him a volatile asset that he could potentially sell for millions. And these things are benefiting.

Bitcoin and Bidens Infrastructure Bill

"So. When i hear infrastructure i think of roads and schools but biden has made the argument that tees investing in human infrastructure so that might include childcare paid leave. Maybe free community college but cryptocurrency. How does bitcoin tie into all this and definitely a strange thing to include in an infrastructure bill for sure But when you're trying to pass a big bipartisan trillion dollar bill paying for so much stuff in the country. There's a lot of people who are asking. Well how are you going to pay for it right. And that was one of the reasons why cryptocurrency was included. These new tax reporting requirements would raise an estimated twenty billion dollars according to some of the senators to offset some of these infrastructure costs. Twenty eight billion dollars is not a small amount of money and it is a very pricey bill but what was it about the original language in the bill that raised alarms right so it wasn't the fact that there'd be heightened tax reporting requirements. It wasn't really. You know the total essence at the bill that it was a definition of the word roker and the way that it was worded was a little too vague for some senators. Especially senator ron wyden. Who feared that. This of broker would end up extending these cumbersome packs reporting requirements to while developers and also cryptocurrency miners. And why does the crypto community argue that developers and minors should be exempt from reporting requirements. Well they're not really making any transactions right there mining cryptocurrency themselves. They're you know creating the wallet. Infrastructure for these transactions that. Take place but it's not necessarily a transaction and of itself right. We heard lawmakers making that argument on the senate floor this week. The underlying text of this bill would impose this kind of transaction reporting requirement on crypto transaction validates. These are the people that are building out the blockchain by validating a transaction they would be obligated to report things like a name and attacks. Id number associated with the dollar amount.

Q&A: Is Bitcoin Bad for the Environment?

"I'm thinking about investing in bitcoin. But my sister told me that crypto is bad for the environment. Is that true. But i thought crypto is digital. So how is that possible. I know right. Crypto currency is entirely digital currency. So if it doesn't exist in the physical world how could it be affecting the fiscal world. It's a concept that can totally make your head spin but we have to study ourselves because it's one hundred percent true cryptocurrency is digital. I'm not gonna rock your world and tell you that there is a pot of dougie does coin at the end of the rainbow. The only way you're going to be holding dougie gone in your hands is if you come over to meet my dog coin penny and you can follow her at dougy cohen on instagram. Halfway so even though the currency isn't physical it is made by physical systems. And that's where the environmental impact comes in. Let's double click on bitcoin for a second because it's one of the least efficient cryptocurrencies to manufacture. And it's also been researched. The most thoroughly so there is belenky of data on the effects of its production process and here on money rehab. We do let us some data. So let's talk about how. Bitcoin is made we touched on this in our episode on. Nf teas but i think we're due for a refresher. Bitcoin is created in a process called bitcoin mining. But i promise you. The process of bitcoin mining is not what you might think of when you picture traditional mining when you think of mining you're probably thinking of well a mine with hard hats and caves and canaries but bitcoin mining doesn't happen in a mine. It happens on a computer and this is the interesting part of bitcoin. Anyone can mine. Bitcoin and you can do it from anywhere in the world so long as you have access to a computer that makes bitcoin completely different from government backed currencies like the. Us dollar. nick sherry. Note here if you want to impress your friends. The financial term for government backed currencies is fiat currencies. Okay back to bitcoin mining. Can you imagine if anyone could print dollar bills. Only that but imagine that you could just print dollar bills and do it at home. Without getting out of your. Pj's if this was a thing. I would do it. I wouldn't you so. Why isn't everyone making mining bitcoin.

"This note from elizabeth. Warren sent gary. Gansler has the intended purpose. I think of figuring out what authority the sec thinks it has versus what authority needs to be within congress and the senate there is a lot of fluff and bluster in the main parts of the letter. That can leave no doubt as to how elizabeth warren feels about this. But the excerpt that i want to read are just her set of questions because i believe that those are the most pertinent pieces when it comes to what happens next to end her letter. She writes as the crypto currency markets. Continue to grow and expand a lack of regulation to provide basic investor protections is unsustainable the sec regulates national securities exchanges and crypto currency exchanges. That operate in a similar manner should be subject to similar regulatory standards to better understand the sec's existing authority to protect consumers and investors who participate in crypto currency exchanges and the potential need for congress to take additional action on these matters. I ask that you provide a response to the following questions by no later than july. Twenty eight twenty twenty one one. Do you believe that crypto currency exchanges are currently operating in a fair orderly and efficient manner. If not what problems says the sec identified that are associated with the use of these exchanges. To how did the characteristics of assets traded on cryptocurrency exchanges differ from those of assets traded on traditional securities exchanges do these characteristics warrant additional investor and consumer protections for cryptocurrency exchanges relative to those provided for traditional exchanges three. Describe the extent of the sec's existing authority to regulate existing crypto currency exchanges. To what extent has that authority differ from the agency's authority over traditional securities. Exchanges for foreign regulators have moved to restrict cryptocurrency exchanges in their jurisdictions in recent years while calling for international coordination to address regulatory gaps. One specific regulatory challenge may arise from the unique organizational structure of some global exchanges for example by finance one of the largest cryptocurrency exchanges in the world by trading volume is everywhere and yet based nowhere.

"Our in studio with ride Johnston and taking Jones mock Fidelis my name and changing the tone in Tyler. Cryptocurrency, stay with me. It's boring. Confusing. But today, I have cryptocurrency direct from the land of ho- quotes. There is I strange new coin that is a Harry Potter themed cryptocurrency, and I couldn't talk about. Introduced me to green take the Shaw's. Unlike some other, let's say colorful, cryptocurrencies like selfie coin and pizza coin. The actually seems to be some good potentially associated with grain. Sorry. It actually comes off the back of an even more ludicrously named in code mimbo. Mimbo wimbledon. Which is actually the blockchain system that grin will live on. Sorry. It's cold mimbo b. The land of how he put that is a spell that one can use to silence people, which is good. If you won't to them from slinging spells at your now. Stay with me the connection here is privacy mock privacy, the idea of calling this mimbo is that a lot of blockchain blockchain currency such as bitcoin on actually as private as what people think they are even there. You're identifier is a string of numbers and lettuce earn as an address agencies can actually start to decrypt that fund out who you are and track all of your transactions. So the point of mimbo is to make that not happen. It's meant to be undecipherable silencing the blockchain. So this means you can't tell if I'm a dementia or a muggle shoal show. Mock thank you going on this that. So in terms mimbo is is the environment in which green will. Anything distinguishes grin as a currency from Cy. Bitcoin or a theory or anything of that night show. Yes. Just like to explain it. As though I am you'll grandparent because show genuinely speaking when it comes to cryptocurrency. I am confused then the main salsa difference actually is the blockchain itself, it's mimbo will than grandma one things that people a client of not happy about with potential of green is that there is no Kathleen it on like with bitcoin with as twenty five million coins actually on the blockchain, but what's interesting about it isn't so much the crypt or it's the blockchain itself. So mimbo the privacy aspect around it that it'll be untraceable allegedly. But almost more importantly is that there are already they're already cryptocurrencies do this Zad cash, for example, but they know private and then grain that's the other thing about this is that one of the biggest issues around bitcoin and a lot of blockchain. Cryptocurrency is that it uses an immense amount of Dada to verify..

"So yeah, that's a good question. I think the sharing knowledge is an old human thing always done that we've always done best when we were able to share based, you know, the wealthiest cities with ones based on trade and commerce not based on on role, power and secrecy. And it's getting easier and easier to share knowledge, obviously, it's getting harder and harder to hoard knowledge. And there's also a question of density population density. How many minds are able to look at the problem at one moment and identity defines affected the Mona sharing is so what able to apply take a question the legal something bizarre into low, and you can get ten thousand people looking at this what the talking about that was impossible before. So there becomes real competition for the old, you know, the kind of the closed we own the specialists, we can define especially because we own lawyers wheel in this politicians, whatever to a more open system where there's you'll competition. There will always be a tension between power centralization and decentralization. I think that's inevitable. I think that's part of the human arms race. I want to own this or we will do this together. There's a real. Fight there in that fight is also I think really essential to how we progress as a species. So when you look at the models from the cryptocurrency community like the blockchain bitcoin the're theory of now with the decentralized autonomous organization, which is this thing that they're trying to do where you can spin up these these corporations, basically that are decentralized, and they have a decentralize. Compensation structure is is do you think this is going to be successful this decentralized organization format from the the cryptocurrency community? I don't know if it's successful in the in the long term in terms of their actual goals. But in terms of of raising the question is being successful ready. The very concept of a decentralized investment fund. This is a strange thing. And I think it's an amazing. That'd be putting here already and that people are really investing in this. I hope that if it fails it doesn't actually hurt too many people, but the long term success comes from exploring these things whether we whether there's individually on. Are there elements of your heavily involved in the distributed systems community? So are there elements when you look at the blockchain and theory him and bitcoin are there elements of what they are doing with distributed systems that can be that that you look at the and you're like, oh, these can be reapplied to things that are not financially related like are. There are there structure, or or is this more of the financial structure adopting things in the distributed systems world that have already existed. Will I'm not really an expert in this. So take this with a pinch of salt masher. I've I've seen a few. I've seen a few different aspects of this. There are for example, with to use Blockchain's for contracts, which are basically, you know, signed agreements between parties, and doesn't require doesn't require a third party to be holding these to be publishing them or something. So I think the. I mean, technically the bitch in the bitcoin community, and the general cryptocurrency community is using zero q in.

"Banking system yet? It seems like every turn there's bullshit with crypto. Well, number one, I think chase does have had, but they tend to happen where the best place to steal money from chases directly into the Bank because they're holding everyone's assets there. The corollary cricket would be like an exchange, and we do see hacks on exchanges all the time. And that's just such a great place to steal money from because there's so much money sitting there and crypto currency exchange in different than a Bank. There's ways to recall even like wire transfers and things like that. These banks are like working together in a way. And yeah, there's times where like there have been swift hacks and banks couldn't get money back. Stolen, but there's a lot more oversight and there's a lot more slowness in the transactions in a way, and that slowness gives them time to realize something's going wrong. Whereas with crypto currency, a lot of it were always talking about how fast it can transfer all that kind of stuff. And that's actually a bad thing in a lot of cases. So we have this new technology with really fast transaction power and no way to recall transactions once they're on the network, that kind of thing. And so we end up having people lose money because they're trusting the new technology. Also, there's a lot of liability that chase puts on themselves. So if there's a problem with my mobile banking app, they kind of usually have liability for that and they're gonna take care of it. Whereas if there's an issue with the crypto currency while it on my phone and someone hacks in steals my credentials through that until cryptocurrency, there's really nobody that I'm going to be able to call and talk to about that. And so basically the securities moved to the edges, your own Bank responsible for all of it to questions before we get off security. My first question is. A year later after talking after working in the space after building company after you know you built your own exchange back. I think he said two thousand fourteen two dozen thirteen. Do you still believe crypto currency as occurrences? Not as blockchain technology, but cryptocurrency is the future. Yes, I am so bullish on the technology, but I think that for the issues were describing, I think we all want it to happen really quickly. People are in the space like let's go mainstream, but I just have to check with my parents like what I become trouble giving my parents cryptocurrency counter. You know, like is it really mass adoption? Ready? And I have to be honest that it's not. There are so many things we haven't gotten worked out. So I think it's absolutely the future because there's things that are better. There's property is better about it. It's it's really self sovereign money that we've never had before those properties listened on route to, sir. Yeah. I mean, just the fact like start out with bitcoin. I was blown away the first time I got into bitcoin realized that there's only ever going to be twenty one million bitcoins. So suddenly there was something that government's always had control over, which was the money supply that suddenly with cryptocurrency they don't have control over anymore. We've taken that on ourselves. We have control over that as a people together over these networks. And so. So we also don't have any man in the middle when were doing transactions online. We lost that. When we got banks online, we had talked to our Bank want to send someone money, whereas with cash, I could always just give you cash. Now we have a way to send cash over the internet basically, and no one else has to know that we're doing it. You know, there's even shielded transaction that works like z. cash and things like that where you can do private transactions, and no one even knows what you're doing, but you're sending cash instantly over the internet. That's amazing. You know that never existed before and all the other things that we can build on top of that are going to happen. It's not just money money's just the first thing, but there's social networks. Imagine Facebook being disrupted by a company that does social networking over a blockchain system, and you can control your privacy levels yourself or things like that. There's all kinds of stuff and he chance you watch the TV show Ozark. No, I wish you did because really wanna go into this because let me just purposes a little bit is about a guy who has money and do the whole thing..

"So Iran, just announced that they're going to acknowledge that bitcoin mining is an industry. I. Think it in USD terms, bitcoin boosted in pumped to over twenty thousand dollars USD Therion was over nine hundred dollars USD this week, which is, is quite a difference. And so this is on the Fiat on and off ramps that haven't really existed in Iran. But now are being discovered and so you, you see where they're inefficiencies in the market. And where there were there is good news than, you know, it, you'll, you'll see it really kind of pump and then further. To iran. There's, there's been other news in the market, as well as light Demetre fear familiar, but some wallets that have been associated with silk road were recently seen sending some, some funds are some bitcoin, too few major exchanges and. Some people speculated that, that might be associated with the dump. But then those were just shortsighted assumptions because this is actually been going on since beginning half of August, so you don't not quite it might have been the reason for some, some. Nice activity in some of the privacy coins, that's also been speculation. So I think that. We've seen a big dump as you start to watch the market. Any start to see some of these trends where bitcoin wool will be in a small uptrend up until a certain point where it encounters resistance. And then once it gets rejected than it might fall quite quickly back down to where it's got a bit more support. We'll see if we print new localized lows on this fall down is the next localized run to resistance is going to be the next bull run. Nobody really knows. I think everybody really wanted to be, but the, the, the, the market is a different time now we've got bit max, and we've got the derivative market going crazy with plenty of trading volume. Even if we did see a huge demand would we? See the same spike that we saw at the end of dozen seventeen not likely not not that hard, but as ETF's are decided upon as more projects, meet their goals in actually release invasion. I think that we've got a lot to look forward to. I think it definitely lot look forward to with more regulation, and a lot of the stuff with the deaf set. The everyone seems to be planning a lot of stuff tied to have so interesting. I think the crypto market seems to be chasing the finance market from a when anything happens in the market place. We have to justify it. So we have to come out with the story that explains it on the market went up because of this market went down because of this. It doesn't really mad or but they need to be rationalization and make sure everything is good. I just think the crypto market isn't as good as a rash at, at the rationalization yet, I, I have to agree with you, there, I think that the markets are still quite inefficient. And so even when they're. There's a bit of good news that comes out, you might see a small pump but until that news really makes it around until an opinion can really be formed. Then you might see a delayed pump later for that given coin in relation to late news. And it's, it's, it's funny how that happens because in traditional markets when news comes out, there's so much efficiency, the, you know, within within the second news has been interpreted evaluated about whether or not, it's positive or negative sentiment. There's a default evaluation and analysis on that given asset, and it's got a new, and what's generally very close to accurate result of what that acid is now worth in. So it's amazing level of efficiency. But in my opinion, it means the traditional markets are very difficult for the layman or for the retail investor to invest effort to receive alpha. Which is a return over above the, the risk compensation that they were expecting. So a lot of people are asking me. Now looking at these markets, if it's time to buy a lot of people come to me, looking at the right moment, the right deal, and I found that really isn't a sound, crypto currency investment strategies. Now, let's put all the money in now what is your advice for, though, for people asking is now the right time? Sure it's a great question. I get asked this question quite a bit is well and. It really depends because I it all depends on what your time horizon is, are you investing for the next ten years, if so, then the now's a great time to get it was probably a great time to get in before September fifth or you know, it's before this last plummet are you heavily impacted by temporary falls in the market the answer's? Yes, then you should take a serious look at how much you're putting into the market and should not put in more than what you're comfortable for, you know, with with looking out in seeing a much lesser number at sometimes what a lot of people try to do. They ask is now the best time in what they really mean is, is now the bottom is, yeah. That's all is, is now the best time has really become is going to keep going lower in, if when I say, well, it's, it should be expected that it can go lower. And they say is gonna go lower than five percent in, I don't know does that impact. To your Bill your, your willingness to go into the market now. And they say, yes, I sat right will great. You just answered your own question. If you're not comfortable with it going a little bit lower than you shouldn't put as much as but you're thinking if you are comfortable with going a bit lower, but you'd really like to be closer to the bottom, if that actually happens, then you should probably just put in some of what you're thinking of putting into in total, and you should probably plan on over time gradually adding to, to your to your pot. Right. And so you might if, if your total budget is a thousand dollars to go towards. Putting money away for the next five years, for example, then maybe not all that belongs in cryptocurrency, maybe some of it belongs in a more conservative investment. And then the part that you're comfortable with putting into risky investment than you should put some of that in the market when you make the decision to do it, and then some of it later based on your own belief and what the market is going to do. And the reason why say all this about belief about what you think is because at the end of the day. Would you coin to sleep? Right. You have to be able to sleep while on you have to be able to hold your bags with conviction when, when the markets tanking, and I'm holding EOS or credential or anything like that, right? I'm just look. I don't have everything that I plan on having in these positions. I'm an accumulation phase in, so as we see a temporary run-up. I'm selling a little bit from my position. And as we see these temporary runs down or run at runs down than or negative runs. Excuse me. Then I am accumulating more. And so if I can get a discount on the coin. That's great. And as it goes up, then I'll sell a little bit of the time. It's just in my opinion prudent portfolio management practices. And so, so do you have any advice for those looking to get into crypto currency right now? Get in getting. Yeah, it, it, it, well it if you're comfortable with it, and you've done your due diligence, and you're an adult and you're comfortable with making your own decisions than. There's usually in amount of money that people are comfortable with losing, or paying for the education. So if that number's one hundred dollars three hundred dollars in Brinda, bitcoin, or put into tether or put it into theory, and then branch out into some of the other old coins, you you'll find that you'll start to keep up with the market more you'll find that you'll keep up with development with specific projects. You'll find that you'll start to become a bit like. The expert if you will amongst your inner circle. And so the reason why I say that is because when you have skin in the game, then you'll keep up with current events because you wonder how that's going to impact, you is your hundred dollars worth eighty five. Now, is it worth seventy super thick? Is it worth ten dollars now? And then if the answer is ten dollars than congratulations, you've probably just destroyed a bunch of value. But you've taken a lot of lessons along the way. And so if you were to now put a new hundred dollars in would you I, I would expect that your newfound lessons would help you turn that hundred dollars in two hundred ten or one hundred twenty it's been fun to watch my friends take, first of all, take three months to get into buying? Sure. One, that's a whole other discussion and to once they actually put some money in twenty hundred bucks now, you know, a few thousand couple thousand here there berry. Much interested in tracking. They know you know, Tanner twenty different coins and the really following all the stuff that's going on. That's right. Yeah. Definitely depending on your risk tolerance. Throw one hundred bucks into something, and whatever you're comfortable, using generally say twenty dollars the people who are okay, because people see the price bitcoin was at sixty two hundred US today this morning. I think anything I don't have that much money. Well, you don't have to spend that much money, you can get in at one hundred or two hundred and what have you and by fractions of the coins, if you're somebody who's involved in the crypto spirit and you talked to somebody who's not involved. Please find a way to tell them that they can buy a hundred dollars or twenty dollars or ten dollars worth of bitcoin without having to buy the whole thing, very few projects or coins out there require you to buy whole tokens. It, it really is not a it should that should not be buried. Andrea. You're absolutely right. I've spoken to plenty of people who were very surprised in all of a sudden encouraged about getting involved when they learned that they didn't have to get in with eight or nine thousand dollars Canadian 'cause it's a big leap to go from. I think I'll give this a try to I think I'll put a significant portion of money into cryptocurrencies. Yeah, I agree. And so, I think just by some get a wallet start tracking it, you know, do your due diligence. Find out what you like what you don't like and, and it quickly becomes a addictive. Are there any resources blogs books or newsletters that you had found useful? If people are trying to learn more and get involved in this community. Absolutely. Actually, there's, there's nothing that can replace the human interaction. So there's plenty of events in her on the GTA. There's plenty of events Vancouver. Montreal. Calgary. It's, it's really important that people go to meet up or go to event, bright. And in just search bitcoin cryptocurrency these couple of hot words that will will spring up these events. You've got your own event that goes on a Toronto cryptocurrency conference. That's right. That's the one. And so, I know that I've met plenty of very impactful people there that I've been able to keep in touch with the bitcoin bay, these communities are very welcoming it. That's the best part is it is a close knit community like you mentioned before, but it's a very inclusive and very welcoming one. And so everybody starts someplace and you're likely to meet others that are just getting started. You're also likely to meet a few veterans it, but you're, you're guaranteed. Learn a few lessons. And when you go to these events talk to as many people's you can, you'll be surprise, you know, a lot of people who are dressed up in the in the suits, and whatever they're just getting in and they're. And they don't know what they're doing. And you'll find that the guy in the hoodie over there. He has eleven brick and mortar bitcoin banks, and he's doing this and doing that. And like these people are doing some incredible things all over the map and I see them coming to my events into other events and their stuff going on. So we have an events page Toronto starts dot com slash events. Go, so go check out the stuff that's going on there. You can see all the stuff coming up in the next month. Absolutely. And then to that point to the online communities are rich with information as well. So you've got read it. You've got certain telegram groups that you'll eventually start to discover through these actual events and through read it. So what's up groups telegram groups as well as we chat groups, depending on what region of the world urine? So you were getting to the end. This has been pretty long. It's been great. I'm giving me last words for audience. Sure. So it it's really important. Everybody. Keep an open mind to things right. I'm this coming from somebody who had very closed mind at one point. And I realized how much I missed right? And so it's just it's really important to keep an open mind to things and be skeptical ex- explore, but be cautious. Cryptocurrency is rich with with innovation and opportunity. But it's like anything else, it's filled with plenty of Trump's to in, so it supporting to just come to navigate as best you can. Great advice. So people wanna learn more about you, and who OB. Where do they go? Sure, says easiest to follow us on in our telegram group, so who will be official Canada, three words who will be official Canada. Could search up our telegram group is usually got pretty good conversations going on.

U O B like Bob, I like indigo Canada, as well as you could follow or keep up, with are sub Reddit, which is also who will be Canada. And I'll have links to all those in the show notes then ran for coming out to take on talk to us today. Thanks so much for having me. It's been a blast..

"cryptocurrency" Discussed on The Cryptocurrency Podcast with The Startup Coach

"Here is your host this startup. Gosh. Acre, currency and blockchain enthusiasts. It's a startup Cuccia and I'm here with Jeff Adams from who OBI. Welcome geoff. Thanks so much for having me. So before we get into what who will be is. Let's talk about who Jeff Adams is. And what did you do before cryptocurrency? Okay. Sure. As I'm sure many people have gone through the same process. I didn't exactly come from cryptocurrency. When cryptocurrency came about actually was one of those naysayers back into those and twelve when I first learned about it, it's working at a retail Bank, and I was telling people to keep their money at the Bank, and don't put it into bitcoin, because it was made up in the scam and all kinds of wrong things. So it it's interesting to find myself on the side of the fence. Now, there are lots of people who still say those things, what would you say to those people now? Well, I I've been in their shoes and it you feel a bit silly. When you realize that you were the person. In, in the corner going, LA LA LA LA LA with rely their ice closed, and their their fingers in their ears. Because if you are observing what's been happening in the crypt occur in the crypto sphere, if you will, then you'll be able to see that there's a lot of genuine innovation going on here. And so it's amazing to be a part of so you were financial adviser, and then you got into private capital and investments. Can you tell me a bit about what you did there? Sure, sure. So my, my line of progression was actually looking for something a bit more adventurous or exciting. So as retail banker I found my, my secret sauce. There got a promotion into wealth management don't board there. And so when I moved from Boston at the time to Toronto. My, my wife is from Toronto, then us the opportunity to pursue private equity, which I got rejected and found my way into private capital. Instead where alternative investment? Were thing. And so I was working with common. Cork in line is being groomed to join their sales team. And well, it was very interesting. The company turned took a turn in a different direction, and I was not a part of that new direction. And so I found myself finishing up school from a distance those at Harvard University, and I said to myself is wealth management, truly right? Wanna b because it was pretty boring. It's exciting learning. The new financial products in the new financial vehicles that you're working with. But when these things are stabbed, they're essentially money printing, machines, the companies that, that own operate them. And so, it's in their best interest not to really mess those, and so it the excitement factor really goes away. And so I, I wanted to be part of the decision making process for those investments. So I tried again to find I way into private equity, except this time I was eventually successful. And so I was exploring new industries that that group should invest in. So this is right around August two thousand seventeen so not so long ago cryptocurrency was starting to hit it stride, but I couldn't be bothered with that at the time I had to focus on my new role and investigating new industries. So I looked at the North American edible insect industry. I looked at cannabis and then one of my colleagues was talking about this thing called a theory him and how it's cryptocurrency that people. Take salaries from and I said, why on earth would anybody wanna take a salary from that cryptocurrency, and so eight even though that was incorrect? It was the right is the compelling element that got me to really investigate. And so I, I guess it took me. Eating investigating eating bugs and doing drugs before actually. Looking at cryptocurrency and the, the winning factor for me. Was that the markets were so inefficient? I just spent four and a half years at Harvard learning that arbitrage does not exist. And if arbitrage effort, does exist, then you must drop everything and do everything in your power to take advantage that arbitrage. And so, I did exactly that. So let me see if I understand. Historically, you laughed at crypto currency thinking it's not backed by anything. You know what you're investing in nothing to going through private capital, private equity pass and looking for until alternative investments. You went into edible bugs, which is we have a whole other podcast about. Oh, we could it is amazing. But I know just surface stuff about it at interesting. And you know, I've heard even some of the conspiracy theories, saying that this is all being led by the lizard people, so they can finally eat bugs public and no one will know. That's really fun. It's. Anyway. That's interesting. Great interest, great industry. Honestly. Just because I I don't like it doesn't mean it's not a good industry eating bugs. Particularly sure. And then you're saying, all right. That's great. But now, let's that might not be the industry for you. We went into cannabis and drugs is not using or whatever, but as an industry from an assessment point of view because could be like you got into bugs and they got into drugs and said, no, no, no. I'm gonna get into crypto least of the three evils. Well, actually, I guess what steered us away from from edible insects, is that we had to take a real hard, look at are we investing in taking life, and the answer that we came to was that we were, we were taking that an insect, cricket or mealworm was life. And so we didn't want to invest in companies that took life. So we had to bypass that. That's fair enough. That's great to have principles and. Guidelines that you can add very high level to guide some of these decisions so you stay away from that you decided to go and get into crypto currency because of the opportunities in arbitrage and other areas. Enjoy and where did you go from there? Well from there, I was made aware of an opportunity, a strong role with trading platform. This lead you to who obe- is sort of. So we went through a few enhancements for the platform improved the product really brought a better product to its users. And you know this is in line with their current vision. And so we were able to do that I guess I find myself needing to find greater opportunities in, in every stage of life. And so when I took a step back and I said, all right. So this was a lot of fun, but where am I going to add value over the next six months and? I wasn't very confident in that answer that I had. And so when the opportunity with we'll became out, they're not a direct competitor that just might be an exciting opportunity to instead of just helping one trading platform, then I'd be able to work with a one of the global exchanges, so that I could bring value to many other exchanges in effectively saying, you know, it I've, I can have a much larger impact on the market as a whole and in making these markets more efficient by going this route. And so that kind of that compelled me to pursue the opportunity with Robey.
