She also alerts viewers to some fake news circulating about the SEC dismissing its appeal in the case, emphasizing the importance of fact-checking crypto stories.

Shifting focus, Wendy talks about Coinbase’s new layer 2 blockchain Base that just launched.

On regulation, Wendy vociferously critiques the Federal Reserve’s new crypto oversight program and stablecoin focus, arguing it will stifle innovation without actually protecting consumers.

Other topics include predictions that a Bitcoin spot ETF could get approved within 4-6 months, Algorand’s questionable security status, and skepticism around the Aptos-Microsoft partnership.

Predictions point to possible approval within 4-6 months, though timing remains uncertain.

Is Algorand actually considered a security by regulators?

The SEC went after Algorand in the past, but its status remains questionable.

In this episode, Wendy O discusses some major moves by Ripple and the crypto XRP. She covers Ripple locking up 800 million XRP into escrow, noting the company’s practice of transparency around its token distributions. Wendy believes this level of disclosure helps traders and investors make informed decisions.

There is also a breakdown of a new partnership between Ripple and the Faster Payments Council. The joint report found dissatisfaction with legacy systems for cross-border payments. Wendy argues if Ripple keeps pursuing strategic collaborations like this, it can lead innovation in global payment rails within 3 years.

In addition, Wendy discusses a contagion risk affecting decentralized finance protocols. She explains the complex web of co-mingled funds and overleveraged loans. With vulnerabilities in code like Curve’s Viper programming language, mass liquidations could trigger volatility.

Other topics include Uniswap delisting HEX after the SEC’s lawsuit, FTX’s bankruptcy reorganization plans excluding FTT, and Kenya suspending Worldcoin over iris scan privacy concerns. Wendy signs-off noting XRP’s downward price action but her interest in buying below $0.66.

In this episode, Wendy O discusses a new partnership for Ripple that aims to transform global payments. She praises it as a smart business move that shows Ripple actively working with industry leaders to solve cross-border payment issues. Wendy argues if Ripple continues making strategic partnerships like this, it can lead payment rail innovation within 3 years.

There is also coverage of a prediction that crypto will see mass adoption by 2025 from ex-Goldman Sachs executive Raoul Pal. His forecast echoes Ripple’s own survey indicating blockchain adoption within 3 years. Wendy is skeptical about measuring users versus wallet addresses but finds the timeline interesting.

She argues the SEC is overreaching by trying to halt all crypto trading on Coinbase, not just the 13 assets named in their complaint.

Here is a summary of the key points from this O Show episode:

In the episode, host Wendy O discusses several crypto and blockchain related topics including Elon Musk’s plans for Twitter as X, the dangers of the identity verification used by World Coin, positive adoption news for XRP and Avalanche, and more.

Wendy shares her skepticism around Elon Musk’s goals for the X rebrand of Twitter, worrying it could become highly centralized like China’s WeChat app. She believes people put too much faith in celebrities and billionaires, when actions speak louder than words. Though building a “one-stop shop” on X could be lucrative, the changes so far don’t seem effectively executed.

The episode covers multiple warnings around the iris scanning identity verification used by new crypto Worldcoin, which Wendy has covered critically in recent days. Scanning biometric data raises huge privacy concerns. Wendy also notes Worldcoin’s involvement of Sam Bankman-Fried and other questionable crypto figures as red flags.

On the positive side, Wendy highlights Ripple expanding into the UK and Ireland as more real world XRP adoption. She also discusses Avalanche committing $50M to bring more tokenized assets to its blockchain, citing the value for institutional adoption.

What is Wendy’s view on Elon Musk’s vision for Twitter as X?

  • She is skeptical it can be executed well currently, and worries about highly centralized control like WeChat in China.

Why does Wendy keep warning about World Coin’s identity verification?

  • Iris scanning could reveal much personal data, raising huge privacy concerns. Involvement of SBF and other sketchy crypto figures also worrisome.

What adoption advances is Wendy reporting around XRP and Avalanche?

  • Ripple expanding into UK and Ireland, Avalanche bringing more institutional asset tokenization to its blockchain.

What are the concerns around the newly launched World Coin?
