Crypto.IQ Daily Radio Show July 3: Bitcoin (BTC) Has Risen $1,600 Since Yesterday Morning, Altcoins Continue To Weaken Relative To Bitcoin (BTC), Congress Demands Libra Moratorium
On this edition of the Crypto.IQ Daily Radio Show we do a deep dive market analysis. Bitcoin (BTC) is up $1,600 since yesterday morning, but altcoins continue to decline relative to Bitcoin (BTC), aside from Tezos (XTZ) which has rallied 24%. It seems Bitcoin (BTC) may have bottomed out near support at $10,000, which is a bullish sign. We discuss how Congress is calling for Facebook to halt all Libra activities until regulators have a chance to dissect and regulate the project, casting doubt on whether Libra will ever launch. Hear about how CoinFLEX, which is a crypto exchange in the Seychelles, is launching initial futures openings (IFOs). Essentially an IFO is a speculative market on a token that has not launched yet, making it possible to bet on whether crypto projects will fail or succeed before their tokens go public. Learn about how Cuba says they are looking into using cryptocurrencies amid tightening sanctions and a worsening economy.

On this edition of the Crypto.IQ Daily Radio Show we do a deep dive market analysis. Bitcoin (BTC) is testing the critical $10,000 support level this morning. We discuss how illicit activity now accounts for less than 1% of all Bitcoin (BTC) transactions, which is down from 7% in 2012. Hear about how BitMEX is launching zero coupon bonds, which will essentially be a way for investors to earn annual yields from putting their money into stable and reputable crypto companies. Also, Binance is launching crypto futures with 20X leverage. Learn about how blockchain startups have raised $822 million in the first half of 2019, aside from over $1 billion raised by initial exchange offerings (IEOs).

Crypto.IQ Daily Radio Show July 1: Bitcoin (BTC) Declines Below $11,000 As Talks Resume Between China And The United States, Craig Wright Says He Is Satoshi In Federal Court But Says He Lost The BTC
 On this edition of the Crypto.IQ Daily Radio Show we do a deep dive market analysis. Bitcoin (BTC) and the rest of the crypto market is declining this morning on news that trade talks have been re-initiated between the United States and China. Simultaneously though, an Israeli airstrike in Syria has increased tensions in the Middle East, and if a war breaks out with Iran that could cause a Bitcoin (BTC) rally. We discuss how Craig Wright appeared in Federal Court on Friday and claimed to be Satoshi Nakamoto, and also claims that he lost the 1 million Bitcoins (BTC) he mined with Dave Kleiman. The court case will continue later this summer. Hear about a Canadian weed dealer who trafficked marijuana on the original Silk Road and then went to prison, and now he wants his Bitcoins (BTC) back. This case is interesting, because weed was illegal in Canada back when the weed dealer went to prison, but now weed is legal in Canada. We also discuss how Zimbabwe has reintroduced their native fiat currency 11 years after the Zimbabwean dollar collapsed, and simultaneously Zimbabwe has banned all other currencies including Bitcoin (BTC). This has caused the price of Bitcoin (BTC) in Zimbabwe to soar to $76,000.

Crypto.IQ Daily Radio Show June 28: Bitcoin (BTC) Rises Back Towards $12,000 As CME Bitcoin Futures Expire For The Month Of June, Iran Seizes 1,000 Bitcoin (BTC) Mining Rigs
On this edition of the Crypto.IQ Daily Radio Show we do a deep dive market analysis. Bitcoin (BTC) is rising towards $12,000 after dropping as low as $10,200 yesterday afternoon. The CME Bitcoin Futures Expiration occurred at 11 a.m. Eastern Time this morning. Perhaps Bitcoin (BTC) now has a better chance at rising back to the 2019 high and resistance level of $13,900 since the CME Bitcoin Futures Expiration is done. We discuss how Iran has seized 1,000 Bitcoin (BTC) mining rigs, and is saying that it is illegal to mine with electricity from the national power grid. This is likely due to Iran trying to stomp out Bitcoin (BTC), since the Iranian fiat currency is doing poorly, and Iran does not want Bitcoin (BTC) to accelerate the collapse of the Iranian fiat currency. Hear about how the Irish crypto exchange Bitsane shutdown their website and social media accounts all at once and disappeared, and an unknown amount of money has been lost. Learn about how video sharing platform TaTaTu is no longer focusing on crypto or blockchain despite raising $575 million in an ICO. We also discuss a new theory about how a blockchain firm in Estonia called Guardtime invented Bitcoin (BTC), since Guardtime was working on blockchain as early as 2008. However there is no definitive proof. There have been numerous theories as to who Satoshi Nakamoto is, but no theory is proven at this point.

Crypto.IQ Daily Radio Show June 27: Wild Day For Bitcoin (BTC) As Price Hits New 2019 High Of $13,880 Before Dropping As Low As $11,200, CME Bitcoin Futures Expiration Tomorrow
On this edition of the Crypto.IQ Daily Radio Show we do a deep dive market analysis. Bitcoin (BTC) has had a wild past 24 hours, peaking as high as $13,880 yesterday afternoon before declining as low as $11,200 this morning. The CME Bitcoin Futures Expiration tomorrow may be related to the current turbulence in the crypto market. It seems the fundamentals behind this year’s crypto rally are still in place, including Chinese capital outflows, a potential stock market recession in the future, and tensions with Iran. We discuss how another city in Florida was hacked by ransomware and was forced to pay half a million dollars of Bitcoin (BTC), and how the Singapore exchange Bitrue was hacked for $4.3 million. Learn about how the Indian crypto exchange Koinex is closing down due to increasingly strict regulations, and in general Indians have transitioned to peer to peer Bitcoin (BTC) trading due to the lack of crypto exchanges. Hear about how Craig Wright is appearing in a Florida Federal Court tomorrow in relation to the 1.1 million Bitcoin (BTC) lawsuit between him and the heirs of Dave Kleiman.

Crypto.IQ Daily Radio Show June 26: Bitcoin (BTC) Rallies To New 2019 High Of $12,800, Strong Fundamentals May Overwhelm The Influence Of The CME Bitcoin Futures Expiration On Friday
On this edition of the Crypto.IQ Daily Radio Show we do a deep dive market analysis. Bitcoin (BTC) has continued to run with the bulls and has reached a new 2019 high of $12,800. Notably, during the major rally in 2017 it only took 11 days for Bitcoin (BTC) to rise from this level to the all-time high of $20,000. Also, the 313% gains for Bitcoin (BTC) since the bear market low are equivalent to the past 23 years of gains on the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA). Altcoins continue to do poorly relative to Bitcoin (BTC), causing the Bitcoin (BTC) dominance percentage to rise to 61%. Burstcoin (BURST) has bucked the downward altcoin trend and is up 150% in the past week. We discuss the fundamental factors behind this Bitcoin (BTC) bull run, including Chinese capital outflows, the stock market hitting its zenith with a likely recession incoming, potential war with Iran, and the May 2020 block halving. The CME Bitcoin Futures Expiration is on Friday, but the strong fundamentals behind the Bitcoin (BTC) rally may overwhelm the influence of CME Bitcoin Futures traders. Learn about how Square has begun accepting Bitcoin (BTC) deposits for the Square Cash App, which essentially turns the square card into a crypto debit card. Hear about how Bitfinex is launching 100X leverage margin trading to compete with BitMEX.

Crypto.IQ Daily Radio Show June 25: Bitcoin (BTC) Rises To New 2019 High Near $11,500, 98% Of Bitcoin SV’s (BSV) Blockchain Activity Is From A Weather App, Facebook’s Libra Team To Testify
On this edition of the Crypto.IQ Daily Radio Show we do a deep dive market analysis. Bitcoin (BTC) and the total crypto market cap hit new 2019 highs this morning of $9,470 and $339 billion respectively. It appears new sanctions aimed at Iran’s Supreme Leader may be the cause of this morning’s bullishness. Burstcoin (BURST), the king of proof of capacity, has rallied 100% in the past 4 days. We discuss how 98% of the activity on the Bitcoin SV (BSV) blockchain is generated by a weather app. Hear about how Facebook’s Libra cryptocurrency team will be testifying before Congress on July 11, and how the Chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee wants to stop all Libra development until regulators review the project.

Crypto.IQ Daily Radio Show June 24: Bitcoin (BTC) Breaks Through $10,000 And Approaches $11,000 As Bull Run Continues, Possible Future Stock Recession + Iran Tensions + May 2020 Block Halving
On this edition of the Crypto.IQ Daily Radio Show we do a deep dive market analysis. Bitcoin (BTC) has broken through $10,000 and is already approaching $11,000. It appears the major factors driving this bull run are a possible stock recession in the next year, tensions with Iran that could lead to a global scale war, and the May 2020 block halving. It seems quite possible that this bull run could eventually take Bitcoin (BTC) well beyond its previous all-time high of $20,000. Simultaneously, the Bitcoin (BTC) mining hash rate is at a new all-time high of 67 EH/s, showing that the crypto mining industry has been re-invigorated by this rally. Expect new breakthroughs in Bitcoin (BTC) mining technology during the coming months. Hear about how Riviera Beach, Florida was hit with a ransomware virus that crippled the city’s computer systems, and how ultimately the city paid the hacker 65 Bitcoins (BTC) worth $600,000 to get rid of the ransomware.

Crypto.IQ Daily Radio Show June 21: Bitcoin (BTC) Nears $10,000 After War With Iran Almost Breaks Out, 10 Year Federal Treasury Bond Yields Are Strongly Correlated With Bitcoin’s (BTC) Price
 On this edition of the Crypto.IQ Daily Radio Show we do a deep dive market analysis. Bitcoin (BTC) hit a new 2019 high of $9,925 this morning, and now the market is watching and waiting to see if Bitcoin (BTC) can break the important psychological level of $10,000. The rest of the crypto market is looking bullish as well, and the total crypto market cap has hit a new 2019 high of $304 billion. Apparently war between the United States and Iran almost broke out last night, and it seems that one more incident in the Strait of Hormuz would be all it takes to cause a war. Speculation regarding war with Iran may be fueling bullishness in the crypto market. We discuss how Bitcoin (BTC) and 10 year Federal Treasury bond yields are strongly correlated. Essentially, when 10 year bond yields decline Bitcoin (BTC) goes up, meaning that when people rush into long term bonds as a safe haven they also buy Bitcoin (BTC). This correlation can be used as a leading indicator to forecast a Bitcoin (BTC) price increase. Learn about how Coinbase was hacked by the 0-day virus, but reversed the hack in time to prevent losing money. Hear about how Bitmain is looking to do an IPO in the United States, and how this IPO attempt is more likely to succeed due to the bullish state of the crypto market.

Crypto.IQ Daily Radio Show June 20: Bitcoin (BTC) Once Again Testing Resistance At $9,400-$9,500, QuadrigaCX Founder Stole Money From The Exchange And Then Lost Tens Of Millions Of Dollars
On this edition of the Crypto.IQ Daily Radio Show we do a deep dive market analysis. Bitcoin (BTC) is trading near $9,300 this morning, and it appears it could be testing resistance near $9,400-$9,500 sometime today. Increasing tension with Iran may be fueling Bitcoin (BTC) demand. Additionally the stock market is at its long term resistance level, and if history repeats itself and stocks go down from this level, it may fuel increased Bitcoin (BTC) demand. We discuss how the Founder of QuadrigaCX, Gerald Cotten, was making fake accounts on the exchange and loading them with fake money, and then buying real cryptocurrency with the fake money. Cotten then withdrew the cryptocurrency for margin trading and lost tens of millions of dollars due to multiple trading account liquidations. This disproves the original story that QuadrigaCX lost all their money because Cotten died with the private keys for the cold wallet. Hear about how Algorand, which is somewhat like a Proof of Stake version of Ethereum (ETH), has raised $60 million in an ICO. Some people are overstating the market cap of Algorand at $24 billion. Only 0.25% of all Algorand tokens were sold, and as more of the supply is distributed the price will drop significantly.

Crypto.IQ Daily Radio Show June 19: Ripple Labs Buying Up Stake In Moneygram To Increase Ripple (XRP) Adoption, Bancor DEX Bans United States Users As Regulation Intensifies
On this edition of the Crypto.IQ Daily Radio Show we do a deep dive market analysis. Bitcoin (BTC) is trading between support at $9,000 and resistance at $9,400, and the rest of the crypto market is mixed this morning. Bitfinex’s LEO token is now listed on Coinmarketcap, and it is in the #13 spot ahead of Monero (XMR) and Dash (DASH). An important Federal Reserve meeting today may determine the course of the stock and crypto markets during the next week. We discuss how Maxine Waters, the Chairwoman of the House Committee on Financial Services, is calling for a Moratorium on Facebook’s Libra cryptocurrency until regulators fully investigate the project. Learn about how the Bancor DEX has banned United States users, only a week after Binance banned United States users. This indicates crypto regulation is intensifying in the United States to the point that trading cryptocurrency anonymously is becoming difficult. Hear about how EOS purchased the Voice domain name for $30 million, and how Ripple Labs invested $50 million in Moneygram to increase adoption of XRapid and Ripple (XRP).

Crypto.IQ Daily Radio Show June 18: Facebook’s Libra Cryptocurrency Is The Dark Side Of The Force, Has All The Weaknesses Of Fiat Currency, Centralized Into The Hands Of Major Corporations
On this edition of the Crypto.IQ Daily Radio Show we do a deep dive market analysis. Yesterday evening Bitcoin (BTC) and the total crypto market cap hit new 2019 highs of $9,435 and $292 billion respectively. Today Bitcoin (BTC) has given back some of its gains, possibly due to stock market bullishness and the indefinite suspension of the Hong Kong extradition bill. The big story of the day is the white paper for Facebook’s new cryptocurrency Libra has been released. The white paper indicates that Libra’s blockchain will be centralized into the hands of major corporations, and the non-profit organization in charge of Libra will be able to change the blockchain’s rules at their discretion. It gets worse, Libra will lack immutability, meaning funds can be frozen or reversed. Also the reserves that back Libra will be invested into various securities and currencies at the discretion of the major corporations running the blockchain, and none of the investment profits will be given to users. Overall Libra has all the faults of fiat currency, and is truly the dark side of the cryptocurrency force. Libra’s centralization is its biggest point of failure, and leaves it vulnerable to government regulation. Governments have a motive to cripple Libra, since Libra is an attempt by major corporations to launch a global fiat currency and run their own central bank, which threatens the power of central banks and governments across the world. Libra will have to get regulatory approval from the governments of the world before it can even launch, and France is the first to say that they will try to stop Libra.

Crypto.IQ Daily Radio Show June 17: Bitcoin (BTC) Hits New 2019 High Of $9,400 After Binance Bans United States Users, Hong Kong Extradition Law May Be Driving Bitcoin’s (BTC) Price Upwards
On this edition of the Crypto.IQ Daily Radio Show we do a deep dive market analysis. Bitcoin (BTC) hit a new 2019 high of $9,400 on Sunday and is currently trading near $9,300, and the total crypto market cap is at a new 2019 high of $289 billion. Simultaneously, the Bitcoin (BTC) hash rate and number of daily active addresses are back to all-time highs. It appears the three fundamental factors driving Bitcoin (BTC) upwards are Binance banning United States users, a Hong Kong extradition law which is causing wealthy people in Hong Kong to funnel their money offshore with Bitcoin (BTC), and increasing tensions with Iran. We discuss how Craig Wright has been subpoenaed by a federal judge to appear in West Palm Beach on June 28, and how Craig Wright must produce the details of where his Bitcoins (BTC) are stored by today or face criminal contempt of court. More details are coming out regarding Facebook’s cryptocurrency, and there is a gauntlet of major corporations that will be participating in the network. The white paper for Facebook’s cryptocurrency may be released as soon as tomorrow.

Crypto.IQ Daily Radio Show May 14: Binance To Ban All United States Users, Bitfinex Burning Off LEO Tokens Every Hour, Circle Closing Down Its Retail Crypto Business
On this edition of the Crypto.IQ Daily Radio Show we do a deep dive market analysis. Bitcoin (BTC) has risen to $8,400, but most of the crypto market is in the red. It appears the market is being influenced by Binance’s announcement that all United States users are banned, and any accounts in violation of this condition will be forced to stop trading by September 12. However, in the meantime Binance says they may ask users for verification information if they live in the United States. This seems to be causing Binance users in the United States to sell off their altcoins and stablecoins and withdraw Bitcoin (BTC), resulting in the observed trend of altcoins declining and Bitcoin (BTC) rising. We discuss how Bitfinex is burning LEO tokens every hour transparently, and how eventually all LEO tokens will be burned. Hear about how Circle is closing down Circle Pay, effectively ending Circle’s retail crypto business. Learn about how PayPal, Uber, Visa, and Mastercard have invested $10 million each into Facebook’s cryptocurrency, and the white paper for Facebook’s cryptocurrency is expected to be published on June 18.

Bitcoin (BTC) is trading in a range between $7,500 and $8,100, and is on a general downtrend since the CME Bitcoin Futures Expiration at the end of May. We discuss how Russia will likely pass crypto regulations which will ban crypto mining and exchanging, although holding cryptocurrency will remain legal. Simultaneously, Russia may set up a crypto free trade zone on the border of China. Hear about how CCN, one of the top crypto news sites, has shutdown due to a sudden loss of 90% of their revenue following a change in Google’s search engine.

Simultaneously, fiat and crypto withdrawals on Bitfinex are working as normal, so the inflated price on Bitfinex is an arbitrage opportunity that is probably pulling the global spot price upwards. We discuss how Bitcoin’s (BTC) continued price surge has led to a return of Bitcoin (BTC) mining profitability, and the Bitcoin (BTC) mining hash rate is rising back to all-time highs.

Binance and ShapeShift have delisted Bitcoin SV (BSV), and Kraken is also threatening to delist. Binance has announced another quarterly Binance Coin (BNB) burn, but it has had no effect on the market today. This is probably due to Binance burning coins that are not actually in circulation. Coinbase and Binance are offering a new Proof of Stake (PoS) service where users can hold PoS coins and earn from mining.

We discuss how China may ban Bitcoin (BTC) mining, which would have a major impact on the mining industry since most of the world’s mining hash rate is located in China. Ultimately, a ban on Bitcoin (BTC) mining in China may be a good thing since it would decentralize the mining industry. Hear about how Facebook is looking to raise $1 billion for its stablecoin. We also discuss how the Electrum Bitcoin (BTC) wallet is experiencing a heavy denial of service (DoS) attack, and simultaneously hackers are running 200 servers which prompt users to upgrade their Electrum client to a hacked version.

The fact of the matter is Bitcoin (BTC) uses far less electricity and fossil fuels than banks.

On this edition of the Crypto.IQ Daily Radio Show we do a deep dive market analysis. Bitcoin (BTC) is once again stuck at the $4,000 resistance level, and due to Bitcoin’s (BTC) lack of direction the rest of the crypto market is mixed this morning. It has been revealed that a hacker printed 2.25 billion Stellar (XLM) back in 2017, and this accounted for 25 percent of the circulating supply back then. Apparently Stellar (XLM) quietly patched this bug and burned an equivalent amount of Stellar (XLM). BitMEX Research has found that it is possible to earn 1 percent annually from running a Bitcoin (BTC) lightning network node, but earning that much requires constantly shifting capacity to the parts of the lightning network with the highest fees.

On this edition of the Crypto.IQ Daily Radio Show we do a deep dive market analysis. Bitcoin (BTC) has solid support at $3,500, and the Wyckoff chart suggests a bottom will happen at the start of February, followed by a rally. The fundamental support at $3,500 combined with the CME Bitcoin futures expiration also suggests that the beginning of February can see a reversal from bear market to rally. However, it will take up to a week after the CME Bitcoin futures expiration to confirm the trend for February.
