Bitcoin Bull Run - Targeting 20K by January
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. Guest: 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.

Episode 152: Blockchain analytics with Alex Svanevik from Nansen
In this week’s episode, guest host Tarun Chitra (https://twitter.com/tarunchitra) and Anna chat with Alex Svanevik (https://twitter.com/asvanevik?lang=en), CEO & cofounder of Nansen (https://nansen.ai). They cover crypto analytics, DeFi analytics as well as discuss the push and pull between a need for privacy and the need for blockchain transparency and data. Topics include: can DeFi and Privacy co-exist, how being aware of blockchain analytics could help people improve their opsec, the role of reputation in these systems, and, finally, how analytics in public blockchains may used as a novel marketing tactic (eg. when someone purposefully makes a big buy, knowing sophisticated traders are following their every move using these analytics tools and will see this as a signal to buy as well). Thanks to this week’s sponsor Aleo (https://aleo.org/) Aleo is the first platform for fully private applications. It uses blockchain and zero-knowledge cryptography to deliver a web experience that is both personal and private. With Aleo, developers can write private applications, without a background in blockchains or expertise in cryptography. Aleo has released Developer Preview I (https://developer.aleo.org/aleo/getting_started/overview/), an early peek at what the future of the web will look like. The release introduces a new programming language called Leo, a new community-driven package manager for Leo, and a new development environment or IDE called Aleo Studio (https://aleo.studio/). We recently had Howard Wu, a co-founder of Aleo, on the show for an interview - you can find that episode here (https://www.zeroknowledge.fm/144).
