Featured Guests

CCO Giovanni Lesna

& Bill Murphy

Show Highlights

  • Hedge Token (HDG) CCO Giovanni Lesna makes his show debut from his office in South Africa.
  • Goldseek’s Peter Spina rates HDG as his top crypto candidate, an interesting and unique hedging platform that seeks to enable everyone to participate.
  • Just last week, during a phone discussion between the guest / host, Bitcoin was trading at $8,200, fast forward to this week, Bitcoin touched $11,400!
  • HDG plans to facilitate diversification of crypto assets, via the Buchman Index, a basket of 30 cryptos.
  • The index includes: BTC (20%), ETH (20%), BCH (14%) as well as XMR and LTC (5%) (figure 1.1).
  • The Buchman Index includes a broad array of crypto sectors, Value transfer; Gaming and Gambling; Media and Social; Anonymity; Platform; and asset peg.
  • "If China cannot contain Bitcoin, nothing will."
  • The host speculates $40,000 BTC, $2,500 ETH are likely by the end of 2018, $100,000 BTC, $10,000 ETH by 2019 and $250,000 BTC, $50,000 ETH by 2020.
  • The guest concurs with the ETH estimate.
  • Assets deemed risky, such as Bitconnect, are excluded from the HDG portfolio. The diversification among assets such as BCH, offers a beta-balancing, free lunch for investors.
  • HDG has a unique value building plan to emulate much of the success of the Bitcoin ETF (GBTC) in the Altcoin domain, which has increased 10X.
  • Although a correction to $7,900 BTC could come to pass at any time, the duo agree that $15,000 is the next most likely Bitcoin target.
  • According to Bill Murphy of, in the last four years the gold cartel has dropped tons of precious metals on the market following Thanksgiving.
  • Nevertheless, the overall market mechanics remain bullish amid solid physical bullion sales.
  • Jim Rickards, notes how the a global flight to quality is adding support for the PMs sector.
  • Bill Murphy has a slightly different vantage point, noting that investors have finally capitulated, by tossing out their valuable gold investments.
  • The net result presents a remarkable value opportunity for precious metals investors.
  • The Fed chief Jerome Powell will likely follow the previous Fed Chairwoman's lead, with a slightly more dovish slant, raising rates at the Dec.
  • FOMC meeting and once more next year, to the benefit of the PMs bulls.
  • Bill Murphy note that on a relative basis, "... gold and silver are by far the cheapest assets on the planet..."
  • A recent article form Sprott Asset Management supports the thesis, noting that gold has outperformed even the S&P 500.
  • Recent comments from the CPM Group corroborate the notion; silver could soar to nearly $40 in 2018 on "... tight supply/demand conditions."
  • The net impact of the aforementioned topics is leading to an imminent upward price-explosion of unprecedented scale, perhaps similar to the ascent of Bitcoin.
