Did C.W. identify the creator of Bitcoin’s name hidden within the nom de plume, Satoshi Nakamoto? See the full story on right hand side of this page:
  • 1st Step. Reverse the order: Satoshi Nakamoto to Nakamoto Satoshi.
  • 2nd Step. Shorten the names: Nakamoto Satoshi = Nak Sato.
  • C.W. proposes that Nak Sato = pseudonym for Nick Szabo.
  • Therefore, Satoshi Nakamoto = Nakamoto Satoshi = Nak Sato = Nick Szabo.
  • Hypothesis I. To protect against legal issues, he used a pseudonym and left Satoshi’s 1 million Bitcoins on the blockchain as a smokescreen, unclaimed. In the mean time, he mined another million BTC in 2009 while difficulty was negligible. This resolution is worth at least a couple hundred of those 1 million BTC ;)
  • Hypothesis II. Trace Meyer and Nick Szabo are the co-authors of Bitcoin, based on Nick Szabos’ Bitgold platform and worked closely on the project, hiding Szabos’ name in the pseudonym Satoshi N., as a second layer of encryption. A collaboration between Nick Szabo (Wozniak / Steve Allen) and Trace Meyer (Jobs / Gates).
  • Part I. with Bix Weir of RoadtoRoot-A continues the ongoing investigation into the intriguing crypto-phenomenon, which may be the early adopter stage of a ubiquitous revolution.
  • Blockchain promises incalculable boosts in productivity while delivering unprecedented reductions in expenses.
  • Similar to email vs. snailmail, the significance of the improvement is difficult to convey without actually using the technology.
  • Bix Weir notes that the new blockchain technology involves innovation on a scale that humanity may have never experienced until today.
  • The host estimates the world may be witnessing the genesis of a new $1 trillion industry; the Digital Collectibles Mania (think of beanie babies on steroids), involves ETH contracts.
  • One crypto asset (CA) sold for $250k last December.
  • A CA is just an Ethereum contract or a digital asset, with several interesting features coded into the Solidity language.
  • CAs actually mimic DNA, morphing with each iteration, similar to the core of the blockchain hashing process or algorithm.
  • The non-fungibility aspects of the ERC-721 protocol differs from the typical ERC-20, because unlike Bitcoin or Ethereum, which are fungible.
  • Non-fungible ERC-721 tokens yield unique assets, representing a big game changer. Simply put, the previous ledger is interpolated via new transactions.
  • Its further proposed that new crypto-collectibles will emerge from the existing Github code such as cryptomasterpiece-artwork assets and classical music, based on AI versions.
  • Nearly anything imaginable could be emulated on the blockchain, such as virtual trading AI that improves profitability based on inherent DNA.
  • ERC-721 + internet + crypto = a $10 brillion dollar industry, potentially and it’s only $10 million in size currently.
  • The situation could result in a Tulip Mania that is arguably less than 3 months old.
  • Chris Powell of GATA.org returns from a speaking tour in Hong Kong and Singapore including CNBC and Bullion Star, with intriguing research on the Bank of International Settlements (BIS).
  • Purportedly, the BIS increased its gold swaps to 500+ tons for banking members, suggesting interested by emerging interest by central bankers and a gold supply shortage.
  • GATA.org is thoroughly convinced that all major central banks, worldwide are materially culpable for the precious metals manipulation scheme, as outlined in their literature.
  • According to our guest, the resulting from paper schemes amounts to a short position that cannot be covered making physical gold / silver "spectacularly undervalued."
  • Market forces could return the prices of the PMs back to their equilibrium point as governments experiment with a worldwide currency revaluation.
  • The host echoes the prescient sentiments of arguably the greatest American economist of the past 50 years, Milton Friedman, who called for internet money or "eCash" in 1999.
  • Friedman's comments were a decade ahead of the Bitcoin genesis, as an essential ingredient to the new Internet / financial revolutions.
  • While Bitcoin / altcoin detractors worry over the legitimacy of blockchain technologies, the host posits that not only does the burgeoning industry represent the future of finance, but of government, voting, healthcare, accounting, legal services and education, inevitably impacting every level of global society in a positive fashion.

(04|26|18) - “Who is Satoshi Nakamoto?"
Who is Satoshi Nakamoto? New evidence using handwriting analysis reveals high odds it is.... N.S. or Nick Szabo. Plus, Nick Szabo created Bitgold nearly 10 years ahead of Bitcoin, which shares eerie similarities. His background fits perfectly with computer science and the legal issues of cryptography. If you were a professional cryptographer of the highest level, an original cypher-punk, wouldn't you want your friends / colleagues with similar backgrounds to know you created Bitcoin, while the authorities were stumped? Here’s C.W.'s elementary school level attempt to help resolve the riddle:
Is the creator of Bitcoin’s name hidden within the nom de plume, Satoshi Nakamoto?
  • 1st Step. Reverse the order: Satoshi Nakamoto to Nakamoto Satoshi.
  • 2nd Step. Shorten the names: Nakamoto Satoshi = Nak Sato.
  • C.W. proposes that Nak Sato = pseudonym for Nick Szabo.
  • Therefore, Satoshi Nakamoto = Nakamoto Satoshi = Nak Sato = Nick Szabo.
  • Hypothesis I. To protect against legal issues, he used a pseudonym AND left Satoshi’s 1 million Bitcoins on the blockchain as a smokescreen, unclaimed. In the mean time, he mined another million BTC in 2009 while difficulty was negligible. This resolution is worth at least a couple hundred of those 1 million BTC ;)
  • Hypothesis II. Trace Meyer and Nick Szabo are the co-authors of Bitcoin, based on Nick Szabos’ Bitgold platform and worked closely on the project, hiding Szabos’ name in the pseudonym Satoshi N., as a second layer of encryption... Nick Szabo (Wozniak / Steve Allen) and Trace Meyer (Jobs / Gates) like collaboration.
Meet, Nick Szabo, the real creator of BitGold and BitCoin and author of our freedom, "The Return of The King" (Szabó (Hungarian: a common Hungarian surname, meaning "tailor". In Czech and Slovak, a female form is Szabová. People with this name include: ... Ecaterina Szabo (born 1966), Hungarian-born Romanian gymnast.) (Figure 1.1.).

Featured Guests
John Williams & Erik Voorhees, CEO of ShapeShift.io

Show Highlights
  • John Williams of Shadowstats.com, a leading online alternative economic-resource sees the potential for an explosive move in the PMs sector / commodities.
  • According to Shadowstats, the official inflation numbers are significantly understated - consumers are being robbed as the pace of price increases exceeds wages.
  • Shadowstats finds that the GDP is slowing at a rapid clip, which will be reflected in next week's official tally.
  • The troubling sign for the domestic economy could result in the first recession amid one of the longest economic expansions in US history.
  • Inflation is typically good news for the commodities sector, including crude oil, gold, silver and PMs shares, all of which are poised from a technical vantage point for a potential rally.
  • The event that leads to the economic tipping point could be an expectedly sharp decline, even a crash in the US Greenback.
  • John Williams expects that policymakers will return to quantitative easing (QE) in an attempt to stabilize the US dollar; the move could backfire resulting in a panic to procure inflation safe haven investments, such as energy shares and PMs.
  • Erik is CEO of the instant Bitcoin and altcoin exchange, ShapeShift.io, a groundbreaking coin / token service that facilitates quick and virtually free exchange of nearly any cryptocurrency.
  • A Bitcoin holder who wishes to convert BTC for Litecoin or any other currency, can do so online without the hassle or invasiveness of setting up a personal / business account.
  • ShapeShift.io does not hold the clients coins, but merely purchases their coins and sells the altcoin of their choice from the existing ShapeShift.io inventory, simplifying the process.
  • The ease and relative anonymity of ShapeShift.io are the most appealing aspects of this service and the brainchild of the forward-thinking CEO, Erik Voorhees.
  • Our guest was a key consultant on the Denver based, SALT lending platform, a crowdunded, blockchain lending service that facilitates borrowing against BTC without capital gains issues.
  • SALT deploys a uniquely dynamic, margin-algorithm that vastly reduces the likelihood of a margin call given the higher than typical volatility of the underlying asset markets.
  • By using crypto assets as collateral, SALT sidesteps the need for credit scores as well as draconian regulatory issues / hurdles, returning value and anonymity to the participants.
  • Erik Voorhee's prime directive involves replacing outdated fiat money with sound cryptocurrency, returning wealth to the rightful owners, "We the people..." (figure 1.1.).
  • The discussion includes the 20 fold ascent of Bitcoin in 2017 and the subsequent micro-bubble in altcoins.
  • Our guest notes 4 such bubbles have passed and he expects more to unfold as Bitcoin / altcoins dethrone fiat currencies as sound money.
  • The dialogue turns to the much-anticipated Bitcoin forecast of top Silicon Valley venture-capitalist and crypto-pioneer, Tim Draper.
  • Mr. Draper expects Bitcoin to increase by 30 fold from current levels en route to $250,000 by 2020.
  • Although a lofty, speculative target, Tim Draper was one of the few to anticipate $10,000 Bitcoin, when the price was merely $500 per coin.
  • In recent interviews Mr. Draper outlined huge disruptive opportunities to improve overcall efficiency / productivity in healthcare and government (figure 1.2.).
  • Erik Voorhees cautions investors to first do considerable due diligence before entering the world of cryptocurrencies.
  • The speculative nature of the sector increases risk beyond the tolerances of typical comfort levels.
  • It is advisable to assume the investment is vulnerable to declining to zero and to maintain a healthy dose of skepticism - the host shares his sentiments.

Peter Grandich, Bill Murphy, Listener's Q&A, Chris Waltzek Ph.D. & Robert Ian - April 13th, 2018 - ©2005-2018. A Spina-Waltzek Production-©2005-2018 http://radio.goldseek.com/ Royalty free music from Google Play. Disclaimer - this is intended only as informational content, not investment advice.




Show Highlights
  • Peter Grandich of Peter Grandich and Company and Pete Speaks returns with commentary on the US stock market and the PMs sector.
  • Topping the financial headlines; the trade war between Washington DC and China, as well as the new Shanghai gold backed yuan-petro futures exchange.
  • While our key trading partners, China / Russia continue to stockpile sound money, i.e., gold / silver, the West is doubling down on debt.
  • Students of Austrian Economics learn that debt = bondage; a concept well understood by the national founders.
  • Benjamin Franklin noted, "Rather go to bed without dinner than to rise in debt... If you know how to spend less than you get, you have the philosopher's stone..."
  • Thomas Jefferson famously said, "To preserve our independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt."
  • More recently, Yogi Berra said, "You can observe alot, just by watching," in similar fashion, the national debt just topped $21 trillion, $21,000,000,000,000.
  • Current estimates of US Federal Deficit spending approaching $1 trillion, annually.
  • So it's not surprise to learn that one leading money manager, Seth Klarman, just advised clients to drastically increase cash levels in their investment portfolios.
  • Warren Buffett says that when he retires, there are three people he would like to manage his money. First is Seth Klarman of the Baupost Group.
  • Peter Grandich and the host share Seth Klarman's cautious outlook on US equities and related securities, at least until valuation metrics return to equilibrium levels.
  • The overextended S&P 500 price-to-earnings figure of 24, has a historical mean of of 15.70.
  • In comparison, the PMs sector remains a deeply discounted levels relative to paper assets as the commodities / S&P ratio suggests a new commodities bull market is imminent.
  • Top financial market technician, Clive Maund presents a compelling case for the resumption of the long-term silver bull market (figure 1.2.).
  • The host notes that India may outlaw Bitcoin / crypto wallets, setting the stage for improved demand in gold / silver, as millions abandon digital money for traditional safe haven alternatives.
  • The latest Listener's Q&A segment includes phone calls on the increasingly popular topics of silver and Bitcoin from Tom in Arizona, John in Sunny San Diego and an anonymous caller.
  • Tom starts off the segment, noting that he’s heard that many of the silver dealers are running low on their stockpiles and he wonders why the price remains subdued amid low supply.
  • John is also perplexed by the silver market scenario.
  • Chris suggests that the improving fundamentals have boosted the technical case for a renewed silver bull market.
  • For instance it appears that the downtrend was competed in 2015 and a solid base formed in 2016/2017 which could launch pad for a new advance to multi-year highs of $28-$30.
  • By observing the long-term trend, investors will gain insights into the strength / endurance of the silver price advance.
  • The second caller finds a correlation between the announcement of a BTC futures contract on the CBOE and the 100% advance in BTC in Dec. 2017, followed by a subsequent 50% decline.
  • Several key experts in the field refute the futures market thesis, citing instead seasonal factors combined with lack of liquidity.
  • In Dec. 2017, leading BTC exchanges turned down hundreds of thousands of applications for new accounts.
  • At one point Bitfinex accounts were actually put up for sale, for several thousands of dollars, online.
  • Large delays in buying Bitcoin, even on Coinbase, where investors were expected to overcome time-based hurdles as a security feature, to build trust over time added to a supply bottleneck. The situation accelerated demand to euphoric levels.
  • If the futures contract scenario were truly to blame then the readily available BTC ETF, ticker GBTC would be the go-to alternative and was actively traded on the NYSE since 2016.
  • Chris posits that the bottleneck scenario could return at the end of 2018/2019 as institutional investor demand increases.
  • As demand grows exponentially, futures and options markets may resize contracts to reflect dwindling demand, so that the typical contract size of 1 BTC could drop sharply.

Show Highlights
  • The head of Eagle Plains Resources Ltd., CEO Tim J. Termuende, makes his show debut.
  • Eagle Plains Resources is a mineral explorer located in Western Canada that seeks key deposits of gold, base metals, uranium, rare earth elements, and industrial minerals.
  • Eagle Plains Resources enhances shareholder value through the acquisition and development of early stage mineral exploration projects.
  • The first key to the success of their “Project Generator - A Risk Averse Business Model,” involves building symbiotic relationships with partner companies.
  • Partners fund exploration as well as make cash and share payments to the benefit of Eagle Plains shareholders.
  • The business model includes the acquisition of new mineral discoveries, where Eagle Plains reserves the right to “spinout its interest of that project into a new company.
  • For instance, on March 8, 2018, Eagle Plains Resources received an Interim Order for a proposed spinout of Taiga Gold Corp; the meeting date is set for April 6, 2018.
  • Shares of such new companies are distributed to existing Eagle Plains shareholders.
  • The second key to the success of The Eagle Plains project-generator involves earning “royalties on properties that have been vended to third parties by Eagle Plains" (Eagle Plains, 2018).
  • Currently Eagle Plains maintains royalties on over 15 projects held by junior to senior mining and exploration companies (Eagle Plains, 2018).
  • For example on March 20, 2018 the company announced an option partnership with SSR Mining Inc. (formerly Silver Standard Resources Inc., SSRM).
  • New drilling operation on Eagle Plain’s Fisher Property, Phase One of which is expected to finish by June, 2018 (Eagle Plains Resources, 2018).
  • Shareholders were treated to another key strategic partnership, announced in late 2016 with Aben Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: “ABN”).
  • The deal involves Eagle Plains Resources' wholly owned Chico Gold Project located 125km east of La Ronge, Saskatchewan (Eagle Plains Resources, 2018).
  • Earlier this year on January 31, Eagle Plains Resources acquired new claims at the Knife Lake Area near Sandy Bay, Saskatchewan (Eagle Plains Resources, 2018).
  • In the same month, Eagle Plains Resources executed an option agreement with CRC Minerals Inc., which may earn up to a 75% interest in the Acacia property located near Kamloops, B.C.
  • The host encourages the listener's to due their own due diligence on Eagle Plains Resources Ltd., a favorite portfolio candidate of top PMs shares analyst, Peter Spina.
  • The ticker symbol can be found on the TSX Venture Exchange, under EPL and on USA exchanges under ticker symbol: EPL.v.
  • Part II. of the discussion with Bix Weir of RoadtoRoot-A continues the intriguing dialogue on silver and Bitcoin.
  • As a GATA.org colleague, Bix Weir notes that the silver market is rigged - manipulators have the upper hand, but only for the time being.
  • JP Morgan holds over 134 million ounces of silver, up from zero ounces in just few years, but our guest thinks the actual figure is several fold the official tally, nearly 1 billion silver ounces.
  • JP Morgan could hold ten fold the stockpile of the infamous Hunt Brothers, known for the 1980's silver market corner / squeeze.
  • The death of the archaic fiat money system is inevitable, nevertheless, cryptocurrencies will not be the root cause, but a natural evolution to more functional / useful money.
  • Cryptos offer global inhabitants freedom of choice to choose a much safer token as a unit of value / utility with highly efficient payment options, convenience and improved anonymity.
  • The founders of the USA would recognize these as inalienable traits, the absolute hallmark of personal freedom and foundation of the United States' Bill of Rights.
  • The long established Gresham's Law actually predicts the enormous price ascent of Bitcoin / Ethereum, etc.; as bad money (fiat) naturally inflates the value of sound money (cryptos).
  • An algorithm resistant to SHA256 ASIC / GPU, exclusively for mobile devices could yield a "killer-app," to ignite an entirely new "crypto-mobile" revolution.
  • Similar to the Sieve of Eratosthenes, the host proposes a new prime factorization algorithm "The Sieve of Erdos", in honor of the greatest number theorist of the last century, Paul Erdos
  • The proprietary technique could vastly reduce the heat / energy effects of traditional mobile device mining methods, relying instead on memory intensive techniques.
