Elon Musks Market Meltdown (XRP Is The US CBDC)

Originally aired on August 18, 2023

In this episode of the O Show, host Wendy O discusses recent crypto market volatility and factors contributing to the price drops, including alleged Bitcoin sales by SpaceX. She debunks mainstream media misinformation and provides her technical analysis. Wendy also covers updates on the Ripple SEC lawsuit, Ethereum futures ETFs, Trump’s criticism of the Federal Reserve, and more crypto industry news. Overall, she aims to educate listeners, encourage independent research, and provide her candid perspective.

What are Wendy’s thoughts on the crypto market volatility?

  • Wendy accurately predicted the Bitcoin price drop using technical analysis
  • She gave price targets that ended up being precise

  • She suggests good buying opportunities at lower price levels

What is Wendy’s take on the alleged SpaceX Bitcoin sales?

  • She believes the media spreads misinformation about crypto

How does Wendy feel about Ripple and XRP?

  • She notes Ripple faces more delays in the SEC lawsuit, but will keep fighting
  • Wendy sees the extended case timeline and appeals as just legal tactics
  • She expects Ripple to ultimately prevail against the SEC
  • Wendy is bullish on buying XRP at current low prices

What is the SEC approving for Ethereum?

  • The SEC will likely approve Ethereum futures ETFs soon
  • This suggests the SEC views Ethereum as not a security
  • It’s positive for Ethereum compared to Bitcoin futures ETFs only so far
  • Wendy thinks it’s because Ethereum is more “green” than Bitcoin

What does Wendy say about central bank digital currencies?

  • She notes Ripple will likely help with CBDCs

  • Wendy values privacy and is cautious about CBDCs

What were Trump’s comments about the Federal Reserve?

  • He said he would not reappoint Jerome Powell if president again
  • Trump felt Powell raised rates too slowly
  • Wendy agrees with Trump’s criticism of Powell
  • She also dislikes Yellen and feels the administration mishandles monetary policy

How does Wendy feel about Elon Musk removing Twitter’s block button?

  • She thinks this is a terrible idea
  • As a woman in crypto, Wendy faces threats and doxxing
  • Removing the block button enables more harassment
  • This change makes Twitter less safe, especially for women
