Wendy O hosted a crypto show episode discussing the latest news and market updates in the cryptocurrency space. She started by talking about the potential inflows of $14 billion into the crypto markets with the launch of a Bitcoin spot ETF. Wendy was skeptical that a spot ETF would drive mass adoption, believing it enables institutions while restricting retail investors.

Shifting to market analysis, Wendy examined the charts for Bitcoin and Ethereum. She saw signs of strength in Bitcoin’s weekly chart but warned that a pullback was still possible. For Ethereum, Wendy believed price could reach $2100 before a major breakout. She also gave updates on Polygon, mentioning she planned to buy more during a retracement.

Later, Wendy covered proposed IRS crypto regulations requiring extensive disclosures and reporting from digital asset brokers. She argued this could make crypto trading in the U.S. difficult without going through regulated platforms like ETFs. Wendy urged listeners to submit comments on the proposal.

The episode finished with stories on Sam Bankman-Fried testifying in court, BlockFi exiting bankruptcy, and Vodafone demonstrating blockchain for global trade. Wendy emphasized the importance of oracles through the Vodafone story and said other oracle projects could do well.

  • ETH poised to reach $2100 before breakout
  • IRS proposing strict new crypto reporting rules
