  • What's going on?

  • Everybody welcome to another Q and A In this unit, we're gonna start off by talking about Bitcoins.

  • So Bitcoin has been blowing up in terms of popularity and Price and I have been getting phone calls and e mails and texts and contact from friends of friends, of friends and family and all this kind of stuff.

  • And people were like, Should I invest in Bitcoin?

  • And I'm like, uh, if you could do the research.

  • So just like with anything, you should understand what you're investing into if you can't understand it, No, you should not invest into it.

  • Then you're just blind.

  • Um, so with Bitcoin, you know, So So people were asking, Do I even own Bitcoin herself like this?

  • And I've been in Bitcoin of owned Bitcoin since 2013 and I followed it prior to 2013.

  • My main concern with Bitcoin back then was that the core of Bitcoin to me, the production of Bitcoin was flawed.

  • So ah, a lot of people I knew I was looking into mining Bitcoin and a lot of people I knew were mining Bitcoin and after doing the research was clear to me people who were mining Bitcoin and making a profit were actually thieves.

  • They were stealing electricity either from their parents, their dorms, something like that.

  • The people who weren't thieves weren't making money mining.

  • It's so good to me.

  • I was like, Oh, this is probably never gonna work because nobody can actually mind Bitcoin profitably without stealing electricity.

  • So that was my main concern, but and then also there wasn't really any use cases yet for Bitcoin.

  • People weren't really transacting.

  • There are a few things from time to time, but it was very rare.

  • So then around 2013 I started to see that Well, first of all, companies were getting into Bitcoin not to sell mining rigs, but actually just to produce mining equipment for themselves.

  • Mine Bitcoin sell the big Quinn and profit.

  • And that was a very good signal to me.

  • That was okay.

  • Now it's legit.

  • The mining process is legit, but I also realize the value of Bitcoin isn't really necessarily know The core of Bitcoin isn't mining Bitcoins.

  • That's not true.

  • The core of Bitcoin is the Blockchain network.

  • And so once I realized I was OK, Ok, this is it's different I was looking at in terms of mining, Bitcoin and training, Bitcoin and all that.

  • That's not quite where the value is.

  • So so that was.

  • That was when I got into Bitcoin that I actually started doing automated trading of Bitcoin in the markets because the markets were so volatile.

  • There was a lot of money to be made there, especially when I first got started.

  • And then as time went on, I started trading for other clients and stuff like that.

  • And I actually did that for quite some time.

  • And, um, I stopped doing that, though, because people are people, I guess.

  • And so the main issue I had there was so for anybody who stuck with it for a long period of time.

  • So because because basically, at least, what we were doing was a grid strategy, which might mean nothing to you.

  • But basically you would sell as price would rise and then you would buy back his price would fall.

  • And so you just keep doing this even with little changes, like little ups and downs but also big ups and downs, and over a long period of time that would make money.

  • But over a short period of time.

  • What was problematic was as Bitcoin would rise, the clients would pour more money into the accounts.

  • So in effect, what they were doing was buying the highs.

  • And then as Bitcoin will fall, they would lose their minds and they would sell Bitcoin.

  • So in fact, locking in the lows.

  • And so so and then what would happen is a long enough timeline.

  • People would you know, you would keep having to adjust the start time of the performance of the account, and then people would be like We're losing.

  • We're not beating the market.

  • What's going on?

  • And I'm like, Well, you're buying high and selling low and and so that was really annoying to have to explain to people over and over and over.

  • And when I finally stopped taking clients from the beginning to the end, I think Price started around like 600 or something like that.

  • And then at the end it was like a little over 1000 and I just went through the entire thing, and it was like anybody who's stuck from the beginning to the end made a lot of money.

  • They beat the market.

  • But the problem was people are people.

  • They buy high and sell low, so they're just irrational.

  • So I stopped doing that.

  • I found that to be very stressful and just not all that enjoyable.

  • So I don't do that anymore.

  • Um, so anyways, then I kind of lost my interest in Bitcoin around 2015 2016 because he's got really high.

  • So you couldn't transfer, like, $100 without paying, like an 8 to 10% fee.

  • And also, it would take a while.

  • So it was like, Well, why aren't why wouldn't we use PayPal?

  • Or if we wanted to move a a large amount of money, we would just do a wire transfer.

  • So So again, that just kind of started losing faith in Bitcoin because the use case was going away.

  • Also, not only just quick transactions and low fees was going away, but also centralization was happening both in terms of banking, mining and really also exchanges in general.

  • So there's only a handful of exchanges that are being used now.

  • There's only really handful of banks and really arguably, like two banks, right?

  • Maybe three, maybe three, like maybe maybe bit stamp, coin base and block chained out in voters or something like that.

  • I'm sure there are you confined graphs online, who has the majority holds.

  • And anyway, it's very centralized.

  • And then with mining, it's all in China.

  • And so with all the centralization, it's again I'm starting to see, like I'm not sure about this anymore.

  • Um, but at least in terms of transaction speed and fees, the Lightning network update to Bitcoin is set to kind of fix that.

  • So, uh, historically light coin has been the quicker and cheaper way to transact Bitcoin like like coin is the silver, the Bitcoins gold, as you might hear.

  • And so so light coin did have a purpose up into till the Lightning Network.

  • And now the reason why light coin is rising is my guess would be that people get on these exchanges and they're like up Bitcoin is $16,000.

  • I don't want to buy that, but light coin.

  • It's only 200 or $300.

  • I'll buy that.

  • And I think that's what caused that to go crazy.

  • I don't think like coins gonna hold, but we'll see.

  • Um, And then there's a theory Um, of course, bring these over to so.

  • One thing I wanted to point out to you is like the high for Bitcoin on coin based was 19 3 40 But if you look at the other exchanges like bit, Finex, it was 17 to let tooth over $2000 discrepancy.

  • Um, that's because people were going to coin base and just buying on coin based because coin bases and easy exchange to get onto and buy Bitcoin.

  • That's where you're seeing that $2000 difference.

  • That's a big deal.

  • And that just tells me a lot of probably uneducated investors just got into Bitcoin there.

  • And that presents a pretty substantial risk because there just it's easy come easy go for a lot of people.

  • So I feel like if Bitcoin was to hit, like, 14 or even 13,000 there's gonna be a panic for sure.

  • Um, but, you know, whatever.

  • So, uh, anyway, yes, So then we have a theory.

  • Um, which does have a use case, but it appears that use case is making a lot of money really fast and scamming clients.

  • So So with the ice, Eos it's a cool use case it's cool idea, but unfortunately, people are just super greedy in, and I think I'm not sure that's gonna pan out very well, but we'll see.

  • I mean, people said the same thing about the Internet.

  • It was mostly scammers and that kind of stuff.

  • So in a word that I probably can't use because I'm gonna get de monetized, but we'll talk about it later anyway.

  • Um, so with the theory, um, like I was contact, I get kind of at least weekly, but usually multiple times week by some I seo some company that's wanting to have a nice CEO, and they don't They're like they just want me on the team.

  • They don't talk about the product really, or what I'd be doing.

  • All they talk about is the icy.

  • Oh, how much money I'm gonna make in the I c e o.

  • And I'm just like, clearly that's all you care about.

  • And so yeah, um, dangerous for sure, for sure.

  • And then, of course, like I said, light coin.

  • I think this is just people panic buying because they don't want to buy a whole Bitcoin and they think for whatever reason, they need to buy a whole Bitcoin or a whole coin at a time, which obviously you don't.

  • Um anyway, yeah, so that's my answer on Bitcoin.

  • Uh, the other questions that people were asking was on ad Apocalypse.

  • Have I been affected?

  • Yes, I've been affected.

  • Historically, it hasn't been too too bad for me.

  • Ad rates, like on the GT A Siri's were like 1/20 of the typical ad rate just because it was self driving cars in g t A.

  • And that just tanked my ad rate for that Siri's, which was unfortunate, but I didn't want to change what we were doing it in.

  • And also, I mean, that was where it was supposed to be, like Grand Theft Auto is a great environment for a I.

  • So anyway, that was frustrating.

  • And so, yeah, I feel like that was someone impactful, But whatever, Uh and then I was pretty much okay until very very recently.

  • My last three videos in a row, I've just been bam, bam, bam, bam just de monetized.

  • I have no idea why it's super annoying on it's been checked Pot number eight, the last Q and A and then chap at number nine all de monetized pretty much instantly, But it's weird because sometimes you'll upload the video and it's monetized for like 5 to 10 hours and then bam de monetized.

  • And then other times you'll upload Bam!

  • It's de monetized immediately.

  • And then other times it might be 23 hours or whatever.

  • So anyway, it's it's super inconsistent, and their suggestion to you is well uploaded as unlisted.

  • And then, I guess, wait 5 to 10 hours at least before you, I would say, Probably wait 24 hours before you actually publish it publicly.

  • Um, but to me, I just I feel like that's so backwards.

  • And what about the people who are like a news channel or product review, where, like, is really important that you're like the first or one of the first?

  • Otherwise, you're just you're not gonna you're not gonna rank.

  • And so like that really, that sucks and silly, Like what I don't understand is okay.

  • What about why not channels who have I don't I don't know.

  • Pick a number 10,000 Subs 100,000 Subs a 1,000,000 subs I don't know, pick a number, um, and give them the benefit of the doubt.

  • So when I upload a video, if I say this is good for it's not gonna be if I say this is suitable for advertisers, I mean, it's suitable for advertisers.

  • So when you d monetize my video, the first thing I'm gonna do is request a manual review.

  • So why not flip it around if somebody uploads a video and it says it's suitable for advertisers.

  • But you're out your stupid algorithm thinks, Oh, um, are captions which are we know they're captions air super flawed.

  • Like I've seen so many examples where the caption thinks I've said some crazy stuff and I don't have a crazy accent or anything like that.

  • So to me, it's like your caption going off your captions, which they're pretty.

  • They haven't really come out and said exactly all the things that they're doing to detect ah, video and why it might be de monetize, herbal or bad or not suitable.

  • But we're pretty sure it's captions, title description and keyword stuff like that seems to be coming into it, and, uh, you know, but they're captions air so flawed they're not even good captions.

  • That's like, uh, anyway, uh huh.

  • so?

  • So why not with it?

  • So say for me when I upload a video and I say yes.

  • Monetize this video.

  • I'm saying I'm giving my word.

  • It's suitable, all right?

  • And if your algorithm detects that Oh, something's wrong.

  • Okay.

  • Do Emanuel review.

  • Don't remove the monetization status.

  • Do a manual review.

  • Because if you d monetize my video, the first thing I'm gonna do is hit.

  • Request a manual review, which, by the way, can take up to seven days.

  • So So why not just reverse that and then have, like, a three strike system?

  • So again, you don't You wouldn't do this for every user account.

  • You would do it for the user accounts with 110,000 whatever subs or view number you want.

  • But you know, someone with something to lose and then have a three strike system.

  • If they violated and you say no, this really is not suitable for most advertisers.

  • Okay, give him a strike, right?

  • And then eventually you can remove their YouTube partnership after three strikes or something like that.

  • Where this way, people aren't losing that initial boost of views that they would otherwise be ableto have both in terms of releasing on time.

  • And then if they do, decide that, Well, this is really a newsworthy event.

  • I need to release it right now.

  • Um, they're not gonna lose that boost boost of views and or the boost of ad revenue.

  • So, like, for me and my channel, I mean, it sucks.

  • It's annoying, But it's not really a big deal because, like 99.9% of all my views come from older videos.

  • They come from videos even from years ago.

  • And so it hasn't really.

  • It's just mostly been annoying and tedious for me.

  • And now, when I like, I used to just upload videos and, like whenever I was known recording, upload, boom, hit, publish, um, but now I can't do that.

  • I have to upload toe unlisted and then wait 5 to 10 hours and then hit request a manual review and then every few hours or whatever I have to check didn't get reviewed yet, right?

  • Because the other thing, too, is they don't email you.

  • They don't notify you when it's been de monetized.

  • They don't notify you when it's been re monetized that they're just so it's so black box and hidden from you and Secret.

  • It's like I don't know, it's very unfriendly.

  • It's it's it's not the right way to go about it.

  • So, anyway, that's my thoughts on an apocalypse and being de monetized again.

  • It's not even really that negatively impacting me, but I can.

  • I can only imagine what it's like for people that are like running any sort of news channel or current events or products.

  • And there's probably a bunch of others are like a vlog.

  • I mean, I guess you could You could push your vlog out one day beyond or whatever.

  • But again, like all that kind of stuff, it's like, Man, you're That's a lot of people that are being benefit.

  • If there's unlucky as I am like, it just seems like every video and putting out now is gonna be de monetized.

  • I'm curious when I put this one up, if it'll be auto de monetized.

  • But anyway, that's all.

What's going on?
