Bitcoin Bull Run - Targeting 20K by January
45 min

Josh Olszewicz is a professional crypto trader and analyst. In this episode Josh explains why he thinks a Bitcoin price target of $20K by January is reasonable. Plus Josh gives his views on DeFi, Monero, and announces his new crypto analysis YouTube channel for Brave New Coin.

Josh Olszewicz

Why you should listen:

As we close out a volatile year, Bitcoin is looking extremely bullish. Josh says it is very possible that Bitcoin reaches a new all time high in the near future. “The way I look at it is to ask what is the rate of change in the current trend? That gives us a timeline for price expectation. This suggests that if the current rate of change continues we can expect that by January price should be somewhere around $18-$20k. Those numbers sound insane but as long as the trend remains intact, there aren’t many reasons to be bearish right now."

Bitcoin has only a short history of the price being in five figures. The time it has spent above $12k is even shorter, just 61 days or so. To put this in context Josh says it’s important to note that “the biggest thing we're doing now is normalizing five digits versus four digits. In 2017 it was more of a parabolic rise, there were simply more buyers than sellers and price didn't really matter. When they aren't enough sellers to meet the demand the price just keeps going up. When you have a bull trend you have to let a runner run. If this goes to 20K people will feel euphoric, but it's just a number, it could go much higher.”

Key takeaway:

Josh has started a series of four new weekly videos for the Brave New Coin YouTube channel. Monday features Josh’s trading set-up for the week, Tuesday is trading tip Tuesday with a weekly trading tool breakdown, Wednesday is a DeFi roundup focusing on chart action for the leading DeFi tokens, and Thursday sees Josh look at the legacy charts such as equities and precious metals.

Crypto on Every Corner: Driving Adoption With Jeremy Allaire and Meltem Demirors - Ep.153
This episode is a discussion from Stellar's Meridian conference, in which I moderated the panel, Crypto on Every Corner: Driving Adoption, featuring Jeremy Allaire, cofounder, chairman and CEO of Circle, and Meltem Demirors, chief strategy officer at CoinShares. In this discussion, we cover: * what adoption means and looks like * why cryptocurrency is at a particularly interesting inflection point * how central bank digital currencies could affect that * how blockchains will recede into the background * how existing fintech payment apps will use blockchains and/or crypto * where on the road to adoption the industry currently is * the significance of Crypto Twitter as a marketing tool * what the crypto industry needs to do in the next year to grow the industry * why it would have been easier to start a bank than a crypto business * why the separation of money and state is one of the most interesting experiments in history * how we'll see new corporate-like organizations without any connections to any existing legal or financial systems driven by tokens * what their favorite crypto adoption success story is Thank you to our sponsors!

Bryce Paul & Pizza Mind: Bitcoin Blockchain Cryptocurrency Ethereum Advocates
Ep. 352 - Deep Dive on IOTA, w/ founder Dom Schiener
In this episode of CRYPTO 101, brought to you by Gods Unchained, we sat down with Dominik Schiener from IOTA to talk about one of the most ambitious infrastructure projects going on in the world, the IOTA Tangle. If the Ethereum blockchain is like a coal power plant, the Tangle is a nuclear reactor core. Dominik gives us insights into the challenges of decentralizing something this unique and technically complex, as well as building out business development on the human side. We’re reminded that a project of such large scale can’t be compared to pretty much anything else in the crypto world, and will take a lot of time before it essentially acts as the underpinning to smart cities and smart roads of the future. One potential concern is something this amazing would be stolen or copied before it could really launch, but Dominik eased these concerns, and assured us the thousands of blockchain patents now held by Bank of America and Microsoft will not impede or impact what IOTA is building. Many people have heard about Direct Acyclic Graphs before in the blockchain industry, but the Tangle is a different variation of that, and we learn what those differences are in this episode. Listen in to see what all is being built on the Tangle and what household brands you know are already partnering with IOTA.

#14: Interview with a Spartan
Today, I’m not only joined by a very special guest, but the format of this episode is highly unusual as well! I interviewed the man who goes by the name @DegenSpartan on Twitter and who is one of the biggest and most enigmatic Defi investors there is. I have wanted to have him on for a long time, but there was one problem: DegenSpartan, or DS in short, is fully pseudonymous and did not even want to have his voice known. So we looked for a solution and ended up doing a text interview instead. Then I got Patrick McCorry (@paddypisa on Twitter) to speak the part of DS in the final recording, while I spoke my own part. At this point, I want to give a huge thank you to everyone who reached out to us on Twitter and offered their help to make this episode a reality. I get that this isn’t your average podcast, and you can go and read the text interview instead if you want, but I think Paddy did a fantastic job and the final product came out great. Please enjoy! Discussed in this interview: DS: Degenerate or prudent investor? How he managed to recognize (and sell) the top in Defi His approach to investing Becoming Synthetix' patient zero Why he dislikes Maker, YFI, and governance tokens in general and more!
