Listen to the May 14 Crypto.IQ Daily Radio Show

On this edition of the Crypto.IQ Daily Radio Show, we do a deep dive market analysis. Bitcoin (BTC) reached a new 2019 high of $8,300 in the early morning hours, and the uptrend continues. The rest of the crypto market is in the green, especially Ripple (XRP) which is up 24%. We discuss how Starbucks, Whole Foods, Baskin Robbins, Regal Cinemas, among other major retailers, have begun accepting Bitcoin (BTC) via the Flexa app. This is a milestone achievement for Bitcoin (BTC) adoption and makes it much easier for consumers to use Bitcoin (BTC) as a currency for everyday life. Hear about how CME Bitcoin futures achieved a record $1 billion of volume in a day, and how the CME Bitcoin futures are possibly a factor in the current rally. It will be important to watch how the market reacts after the May CME Bitcoin futures expiration. Learn about a new theory that Satoshi was a drug lord who was an informant for the government, but this theory is likely wrong. Also, someone on the internet claims to be Satoshi and will “reveal” themselves this morning, but this is likely a farce since Satoshi would probably never reveal himself. We also discuss how Bakkt says physical Bitcoin futures are going to launch in the coming months, but there is no exact date disclosed yet.
