LEO Roundtable #36 - Binance Smart Chain: Hype or Massive Opportunity? Behind the Scenes with One of Its Earliest Adopters
Binance Smart Chain and the BNB token are currently the #1 news story within the Crypto/DeFi space. Bitcoin is making new all-time highs, ETH is making new all-time highs and in the meantime, liquidity, volume and the price of BNB have exploded to an even greater degree. On this episode of the LEO Roundtable, we sit down with LeoFinance statistician by day and DeFi farmer by night @dalz to talk about the BInance Smart Chain. Dalz was one of the earliest adopters of Decentralized Finance protocols on the Binance Smart Chain and he's been crushing it on the various applications and pools that exist in that chain.

LEO Roundtable #35 - Is this a 2017 Repeat or Is this Crypto Bull Run Different?
This bull run has had both a number of familiarities and a number of differences. In 2017, there was a massive boom in interest for the crypto space. The ICO craze marked one of the highlights of the bull run. This time, there is the DeFi craze. There are some key differences between the ICO craze and the DeFi craze. DeFi feels more legitimate. It feels like it's solving a real use case and not just raising funds for some crazy new token that will end up going to 0. 00:00:00 You Either Know About Bitcoin or You Get Left Behind 00:02:30 This Bull Run Feels Like the 2017 Rally - Analysis With Bitcoin Dominance 00:05:15 2017 ICO Craze Vs. 2020 DeFi Craze 00:07:30 RUNE Analysis - Why We're Bullish 00:14:00 Bitcoin, Selling Crypto into Stablecoins and Avoiding Taxes with Lending Contracts 00:26:10 Using Crypto Futures to Hedge Your Portfolio 00:34:00 Is DeFi the Future of Passive Income and "Cashing Out" of Crypto? 00:46:00 Taking Rolland's Bets to the Blockchain 01:02:20 The New Update for LeoFinance.io 01:10:00 Q&A on ProjectBlank - Airdrop Details 01:18:00 ProjectBlank Will Change the Way Hive Content Creation Works on a Fundamental Level

Roundtable #34 - Tesla Buys $1.5B Bitcoin, Apple Crypto Exchange Rumors Circulating & the Best Profit-Taking Strategy
We decided to meet for an emergency LeoFinance podcast this morning to talk about all of the things happening in crypto right now. Tesla just filed with the SEC announcing two key pieces of news: they've purchased $1.5 billion worth of Bitcoin for their balance sheet AND they will soon accept BTC as a form of payment. These two pieces of news have shot the price of Bitcoin from $38k to $46k today, reaching a new all-time high. In this podcast episode, we talk about the news in real-time, how it impacts us and where we see things headed. We also talked about a strategy we might deploy if BTC reaches a certain price target where we may look to take profits without completely selling our Bitcoin.

Daily LEO #9 - Robinhood Betrays Customers as Retail Investors Band Together Against Wall Street
The most important news on social media right now is the fight against Wall Street. A community on Reddit started a massive battle of retail investors vs. Wall Street hedge funds. The crazy part is that the retailers are winning.. and in a big way. They are winning so big, in fact, that Robinhood and other exchanges decided to delist the stocks in question and major platforms are censoring retail investors and WallStreetBets community members on social media and financial markets. We live in unprecedented times. What's happening right now is anti free markets and a change must happen.

Roundtable #30 - Happy HODLdays! New LeoFinance Investors, Bitcoin Price Predictions, Trading and DeFi
We met for a happy HODLdays episode of the roundtable. I hope you all are enjoying the holidays this week and with the New Year just days away, we decided to make some friendly bets on where the BTC price will end up by year end 2020. The holidays are generally much slower for most businesses. Trading and markets are definitely slower during these times and it is nice to get a bit of a break in the mix. On this roundtable, we also talk about some upcoming developments, stimulus checks and some DeFi info that I found extremely helpful. Show Notes: https://leofinance.io/@khaleelkazi/esyietdj

Daily LEO #8 - Elon Musk Researching Bitcoin, Michael Saylor Completes 1.1 Billion Dollar BTC Buy, Ripple Gets Sued
Today's Daily LEO features the latest Bitcoin news.

Daily LEO #7 - Institutional FOMO Reaches All-Time Highs as Mass Mutual and Other Major Players Buy Bitcoin and ETH
Mass Mutual is an insurance company that is 169 years old. It's one of the largest in the world and represents a nice segment that we could call "old" or "boring" money. As I continue to reiterate in these Daily LEOs, we're seeing a narrative of more and more institutions FOMOing into Bitcoin. It's starting to become irresponsible for institutions and major investors to not have any sort of BTC exposure in their portfolios. If Mass Mutual were to increase their position to just 1% of this fund, then that would be an additional $2.15 billion that they'd purchase. While no plans for this were announced, it's not hard to imagine that they would leg in with a smaller purchase and slowly add to the position over time. This article also mentions Grayscale and the reported levels of ETH buying that is happening. Institutions aren't blind to innovation and the Ethereum blockchain services the most innovative projects in all of crypto. With a market cap of $62 billion USD, ETH has some massive upward volatility ahead of itself if institutional money continues to flow into the top 2 assets in crypto.

LEO Roundtable #28: Is the Crypto Dip Meaningful? Price Predictions, Capitalizing on Bull Markets & New LeoFinance Developments
This weekend, we met for another LEO Roundtable Podcast. The whole crypto market experienced a correction and many are wondering if it's a meaningful move. We analyze this and a myriad of factors related to how the market is moving right now. We move on to discuss WLEO / LEO tokenomics - especially as they relate to exchange listings. LEO has such a low liquid supply that many wonder if we have the liquidity to list on various exchanges. In this episode, we explain the important tokenomic inflows/outflows that will accompany various exchange listings.

Roundtable #27: Exploring AI Content Tools, 2 New LEO Token Investors Onboarded and the Future of LeoFinance
This is the 75th episode of the LeoFinance podcast and this might be the most wide-ranging episode we've ever recorded. We covered even more ground than usual and even had 2 of @scaredycatguide (Mitch)'s friends join the show.

It's always fun to see new faces on LeoFinance and this time, we got an even deeper insight into who is attracted to LeoFinance and why.

#74 - Wrapped LEO Relaunch Party: Live Demos for Wrapping LEO and Providing Liquidity
It's been a wild ride for LeoFinance, LEO and WLEO. We've done this all before as we created the first version of Wrapped LEO and launched it into the Universe. Now we're back with an improved model, a high degree of security and a much bigger community. In some ways, WLEO 1 was a blessing in disguise. It allowed us some time to go back to the drawing board on a number of aspects related to LeoFinance and the LEO token economy. With the knowledge of what happens when a wrapped token is introduced coupled with a desire to relaunch in a highly secure and compatible way, we've finally brought back WLEO. WLEO 2 marks an important milestone for our project. LeoFinance is a cross-blockchain social platform. We're built using the most powerful aspects of Hive: fast, scalable and free transactions and our platform bridges the gap to other blockchains by reaching out with projects like the LeoInfra Metamask integrations (allowing Metamask users to signup to LeoFinance/Hive in less than 30 seconds) along with vital aspects of our economy like Wrapped LEO (WLEO).
