We are joined by Kingsley Edwards who will be a mainstay on the show and someone whose been a longtime friend of WAM. You can read a brief bio I compiled below.
We go over a plethora of news that has been going on in the crypto markets. It has been awhile since we posted a crypto specific show so you can imagine that there is a ton to cover.
Some of the articles we touched on can be found below. We discuss factors behind both the recent rise and slight consolidation. We speculate if crypto is a safe haven asset or not. We also get into factors that are leading to wide adoption such as NFL players demanding to get paid in crypto, whole food plans to allow payment in Bitcoin and the widely anticipated "Facebook" coin.
If you have not seen it yet we also touch on CONgressman Brad Sherman of Cali who calls for Bitcoin to be banned. This is a must see video as he absolutely nails why the Federal Reserve and Federal government are terrified of Bitcoin and this piggy backs on Nobel Peace price winner Joseph Stiglitz who also called for Bitcoin to be banned.
You also have to hear how Kingsley is an OG when it comes to coinbase banning people as this happened to him years ago.

large buy order about a month ago. https://www.newsbtc.com/2019/04/03/yes-bitcoin-btc-whales-are-in-a-100-3-million-buy-order-is-just-the-beginning/
Reuters, yesterday’s surge was a result of “a single order that has been algorithmically-managed across these three venues, of around 20,000 BTC” as noted by Oliver von Landsberg-Sadie, chief executive of cryptocurrency firm BCB Group. Oliver goes on to say that “If you look at the volumes on each of those three exchanges – there were in-concert, synchronized, units of volume of around 7,000 BTC in an hour.” If anything, this is a tell-tale sign that there is improving market confidence and something “huge” is on the cards a few days after CBoE delisted their XBT Futures
