Denis Kurilchik comes from Russian crowdfunding. He and the SIMEX exchange saw the opportunity to enter blockchain and took it with both hands.

They were legitimate business prior to the boom and they have a very interesting idea to allow crypto to equity investing. This means you can use your crypto to buy and own equities. Hear how and why

John Baird has been in the corporate world for a long time and has had huge success in cybersecurity and many other areas. He left the corporate world to pursue his latest venture UCOT which is a business connecting producers with consumers. This is business using blockchain to solve a problem not blockchain looking for a problem to fix. Progress has been fast and the future looks bright.
It has certainly been one of the slower weeks in the markets that I can remember. Bitcoin is sideways along with most of the top-10. Does this mean opportunity doesn't exist? No way, you just need to know where to look

Yes again we have another very slow day on Bitcoin and the top-10. Very little in the way of momentum in either direction. I am seeing some signs of confusion on the lower time frames. Good time to build Sats or sit out
I speak with Reuben Yap who is the COO of Zcoin. Reuben has a very interesting story as to how he left his corporate law job and moved into the digital asset space.

This could be a gem you've not yet heard of so have a listen!

Joel and Travis are the undisputed kings of the podcast landscape in crypto and for good reason too. They manage to educate through an easy to understand language tied together with humor.

They have their own coin coming out the "Bad Coin" and we talk about it along with their travel schedule and much more.
My focus now is on the bitcoin weekly chart. Cryptotraders need to be aware of all time frames and with a 33% pullback now having happened it is of interest how this weekly candle closes. Looking forward to seeing Sydney course attendees next weekend!
I have had enough with people only following others due to the number of followers they already have. Where did experience required go? Where did credibility go? Where did being a decent human go? The social media cesspool is fraught with fools and fakes. Be careful who you follow. RANT POST!
Tone is a guy I like, I don't mind what you think of him, he is a man who stands behind his words, he knows markets and cops a lot. He still champions Bitcoin and adoption and education. Have a listen to what he has to say, it is a good chat. Thanks Tone!
