Is Musk Going To Pi** off the SEC Again? #135
Well, we recorded this podcast before this news came out – but we saw this one coming…Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk is reportedly under SEC scrutiny over some alleged cryptocurrency manipulation and it is not over Bitcoin – it is over Dogecoin. Musk and the SEC have more of a hate-hate relationship than a love-hate relationship, and of course, the SEC has gone after him before. During his attempt to take Tesla private in 2018 he tweeted out “funding secured” which led the SEC to file a lawsuit against him as they felt he was exaggerating, and they fined him, and Tesla, $20M USD each (Musk bought $20M in shares from Tesla to cover their part of the fine and has since made that money backhand over fist). Also, as part of that settlement, Musk had to step down from being the Chairman of the Board. Recently, with Musk a key evangelist for bitcoin, Tesla bought $1.5B in bitcoin – and his love for crypto does not stop there. Musk has been shilling for Dogecoin, the famous ‘joke’ coin with a dog as its mascot. But will the ‘joke’ be on Musk? As an influencer in today’s society, this means that people will follow where he leads. So, when he tweets his love for bitcoin, it apparently translates to “buy bitcoin” for all the sheep out there. So, what happens when Musk writes “bitcoin is almost as bs as regular money”? Well, it makes the SEC sad, as it starts to apparently look like market manipulation. But is the SEC right to be mad? Join Aviva Ounap, host of Crypto and Blockchain Talk, and Jonathan Dunsmoor from Dunsmoor Law as they have a quick chat about Musk, Bitcoin, and Doge and ask – what will happen?

Tether, Powell Testimony and Bitcoin Hegemony - FED 42

Search for “Fed Watch - Bitcoin and Macro” on your podcast app. iTunes: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/fed-watch-bitcoin-and-macro/id1543640492 Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCtOV5M-T3GcsJAq8QKaf0lg Bitcoin Magazine: https://bitcoinmagazine.com In this episode of Bitcoin Magazine’s Fed Watch podcast, Christian Keroles and Ansel Lindner give an update on bitcoin’s price action over the last two weeks, speak about the Tether’s settlement with the NYAG, provide expert commentary on Chairman Powell’s testimony, and dive deeply into how bitcoin fits into the macro landscape. Bitcoin’s price action has been quite volatile, but bitcoiners are used to that. After breaking out of January’s consolidation it rose 50% to threaten the round $60,000 level before pulling back and consolidating. There is some apprehension about this pull back, because many people were ready for price to go up and never come down again. Of course, there will be periods of gains followed by times of consolidation. Nothing to get concerned with at this point. Tether also had some very bullish news this week on Tuesday morning when it was announced that they settled with the NY Attorney General to pay an $18 million fine. But what exactly they are paying the fine for must be implied. Despite claims by the NYAG of wrongdoing, no convincing evidence was produced to justify pursuing the case further. This new appears to be quite bullish for the bitcoin industry as Tether provides a significant portion of liquidity on the fiat side of trades. Next the co-hosts breakdown some of Chairman Powell’s testimony given to the Senate on Tuesday. At the time of recording, the proceedings were just ending and the tweets about Powell’s bitcoin and “digital dollar” comments were already starting to fly. Ultimately, there was nothing new on this front from the Fed’s chief, he reiterated previous comments using very similar rhetoric, with the sole exception of adding that a digital dollar was a “high priority.” The basic position of the Fed on a digital dollar remains cautious. They are working with partners like the University of Texas and MIT on research initiatives but they take their role as provider of the reserve currency very seriously. They will not move quickly on a digital dollar. As comparison, the ECB is on the forefront of this movement for different reasons, but even they are admittedly still 4 years away. If there is to be a digital dollar, separate from the market provided digital dollars already very successful like Tether, it will be at least 5-8 years away. Powell also spoke on inflation. Much information can be gathered by a careful listening to his word choices. He says we may see prices picking up as the economy reopens. But that is not a strong statement, it is one made from a academic framework, not real world data. He also says the Fed has the tools to keep inflation under control. But no mention of tools to keep deflation under control, which is the primary atmosphere we are dealing with at this time. Lastly, in regards to recent rises in longer term Treasury rates Powell said rates are moving up because of expectations of economic recovery. This is a subtle but important point that Ansel emphasizes, Powell is not saying rates are moving up because of actual recovery, only the expectation of recovery. And what happens when those expectations turn negative? This wide ranging podcast episode ends with a foray into how bitcoin fits into the world of macroeconomics and even geopolitics going forward. We are aware that bitcoin is making an entrance onto the broad international monetary scene, but what will that look like later this year and going forward? Where does bitcoin fit? You’ll have to listen to find out what Ansel and Christian say, it might surprise you. Thanks for listening. Make sure to visit our Sponsor stacks2.com and find our new RSS feed!

Techemy Capital launches DeFi ETP on Balancer
Techemy Capital has launched Decentralized Exchange-Traded Portfolios (ETPs) on Balancer, starting with a DeFi ETP. We’re joined by Techemy Capital CEO Fran Strajnar, and Balancer CEO Fernando Martinelli who discuss why these ETPs are a potential game-changer, how to invest, and what this means for DeFi. Guests: Fran Strajnar and Fernando Martinelli Why you should listen: “Digital asset investors and traders are seeking more advanced ways to gain exposure to popular DeFi assets,” says Fran Strajnar, CEO at Techemy Capital. “BNC’s DeFi Index and ETP provides this, all with industry-leading security, transparency, and speed. Rather than having to pick one DeFi winner and hope for the best, investors can now get exposure to the success of the entire sector.” Fernando says it is validating to see funds such as Techemy Capital be early adopters of Balancer. "We're about to launch Balancer V2 which will bring massive gains in cost efficiency for gas fees. It's an exciting time for crypto and for DeFi and brilliant to see Techemy Capital provide a use case for Balancer that we foresaw from day one.” Key takeaway: The DeFi ETP is a physical representation of Brave New Coin’s Blue-Chip DeFi Index ( a portfolio of 8 key assets). The DeFi ETP gives traders non-synthetic exposure to assets in the BNC DeFi Blue-Chip Index: Yearn Finance ($YFI), Compound Finance ($COMP), Aave Protocol ($AAVE), MakerDAO ($MKR), Synthetix ($SNX), Uniswap ($UNI), SushiSwap ($SUSHI) and Uma Project ($UMA). Issued on Balancer Protocol, the new DeFi ETP mimics the constitution and weights of the BNC Blue-Chip DeFi Index. It is rebalanced in alignment with the index, providing traders an opportunity to get non-synthetic exposure to the assets that make up the index, and/or to speculate or arbitrage between the price parity of the index-powered perpetual swaps [offered by third parties such as BTSE] and the spot market for the ETP. The DeFi ETP is non-custodial, transparent, on-chain, wholly collateralized, highly liquid, and instantly redeemable.

The Fed Goes Down...Literally Bad News For Thursday, Feb 25th
The Fed Goes Down...Literally Bad News For Thursday, Feb 25th The crypto markets had the anticipated pullbacks this week as we saw Bitcoin drop over $10,000 in the blink of an eye. Are we going back up soon or will the bears take over for a time? Bitcoin and pizza are in the news once again as delivery driver received a pretty awesome tip. Merchants are looking towards crypto as VISA and Mastercard raise their rates. And the Federal Reserve’s wire and ACH systems went down.  And we don’t mean downtown.  We mean literally.  Crypto.com is burning 70B of their CRO tokens, Square generates $1.7 billion in crypto revenue, and the NFT world has reached into the physical world as Topps’ Garbage Pail Kids crossover into the retail space. Here’s a riddle for you. If the Federal Reserve is unable to do their business and none of us pay attention, does anyone really give a crap?
