February 1, 2021 — Bloomcast is a weekly net present by BSP-licensed digital asset service supplier BloomX the place its host Luis Buenaventura, Ramon Tayag, and Justin David, along with Tagcash’s Mark Vernon invite native crypto personalities to debate the necessary information and developments within the trade for the week. Immediately’s visitor is Gabby Dizon of Yield Guild Video games.

BloomCast episode 38, and the second episode for 2021 aired on January 26, 2021. Luis Buenaventura confirmed on the display screen BitPinas’ Monday Market submit, which mentioned the information for the earlier week. (Thanks!) This text is supposed to offer a couple of highlights from the present.

(Word that something pertaining to cost predictions isn’t funding recommendation.)

On Bitcoin Worth

Each week, the present’s hosts and company will attempt to guess the worth of Bitcoin the subsequent time Bloomcast goes stay. Whereas they attempt to make rational worth predictions, after all, more often than not these predictions are usually not based mostly on something and are extra “intestine really feel”. Only for enjoyable.

Luis was approach off final week since he stated $47,000. I feel we should always commerce Bitcoin in opposition to their worth predictions?

Luis stated even when the Bitcoin worth went down, one may inform that the cash continues to be in crypto, however we’re seeing an exit. Justin famous the futures expiry choices final Friday

Onward to the bets:

Mark Vernon: $34ok. I feel we’re nonetheless in consolidation mode. (He talked about if the tax season may have an impact, however the others stated it’s in all probability already booked in.)

Ramon stated $37.5k. Justin could be $39ok. He thinks there shall be a escape quickly. Luis is at $41ok.

Gabby’s wager is $36,721. Very particular.


Ramon stated there have been experiences that Asia continues to be bearish on Bitcoin. Gabby stated that’s the final narrative on Crypto Twitter due to the instances when worth goes up and down, however he thinks it’s extra about the place the vast majority of the Bitcoins are being mined (Asia). (Keep in mind that miners are perpetual sellers within the Bitcoin ecosystem.)

On Ethereum Worth

Gabby: January has been superb for Ethereum, yield farming, and Defi. If you’re not tremendous aggressive together with your leverage, you’re nonetheless considerably up vs. the beginning of the 12 months.

Luis: Firstly of the 12 months, had been you considering that the ETH worth will go to $1,000?

Gabby: Probably not, I used to be extra ready for a gradual grind up. I’ve been within the area lengthy sufficient to know that when Bitcoin surged, you sort of simply want to attend patiently as a result of ETH will observe. Sooner or later sooner or later, I feel they may decouple finally because the system matures. 

Primarily, when BTC goes up and loopy, he stated one can wait patiently for ETH and the remainder of the ecosystem to observe.

Onwards to the worth wager:

Mark: $1,250

Gabby: Between $1,300 to $1,400.


Everybody believes no breaking of all-time excessive this week. 

Mark: There’s no thrilling information that’s going to occur. (Dogecoin, WallStreeBets, and Elon Musk had different plans.)

Onto the information:

Bitcoin Whitepaper Problem

The story: Craig Wright, who claims he’s Satoshi Nakamoto, is claiming copyright possession of the Bitcoin whitepaper and asking web sites like to take it down. The web site took it down however many others, together with town of Miami hosted the whitepaper.

The query is ought to anybody locally need to bear the authorized brunt of a seemingly mindless lawsuit. Luis stated on the finish of the day, even when the lawsuit makes no sense, you continue to have to pay the attorneys, and so forth, which makes the lawsuit costly.

Mark stated Craig isn’t Satoshi.

Mark: He’s such a ache. Anybody who is aware of something about this is aware of he can’t be the unique Satoshi Nakamoto due to the way in which he’s doing it. 

Bitcoin Double-Spend

The story: There was misreporting on Bitcoin double-spend, which actually didn’t occur. 

Luis: If you recognize something about Bitcoin, you recognize that it’s complete level is the double-spends are speculated to be unimaginable to tug off. (As a result of one can’t spend the identical money twice, or else we’ll lose confidence within the monetary system, we coated the subject here.) TLDR: It’s unimaginable to tug off. 

The forged mentioned what number of confirmations one thinks is sufficient to say the Bitcoin transaction has been executed. The overall consensus is 6 confirmations. Nevertheless it may fluctuate. If you’re promoting espresso, perhaps don’t look forward to confirmations, or perhaps simply 1. 

Ramon: If you happen to’re promoting a telephone, look forward to 1, for TV’s 2. If you’re promoting a jet, perhaps look forward to the total 6 confirmations. 

Luis did a Bitcoin 101: “Bitcoin transactions are atomic. Once you ship BTC and out of your pockets it reveals zero confirmations, it means the BTC continues to be in your pockets. The Bitcoin walllet may show that the steadiness has been deducted however that’s solely to make the particular person cease from sending one other one (as a result of they may assume he wasn’t in a position to ship when he already did.)”

Rick & Morty

The information: Rick & Morty creator Justin Roland sells Ethereum artwork for $1.65 million

Rick and MortyJustin Roland Crypto Art

Luis: He entitled his creation “The very best I can do.” (It’s principally doodle on a post-it observe.)

Gabby stated the art work was launched on Nifty Gateway owned by Gemini (Winklevoss.) “Nifty Gateway has been nice in doing crossovers between a real-world cultural icon after which getting them to mint first NFTs. (They had been in a position to get Beeple, a well-known digital artist, his NFT offered $2 million.)”

The subject turns as to whether that is actually artwork. 

Gabby: For lots of people, this isn’t one thing they might name artwork. However really this isn’t an NFT query, it’s not even a crypto artwork query. It’s really an artwork query. If you happen to have a look at quite a lot of up to date artwork, going again to final 12 months’s “Banana on a wall.” Context:

“Artwork was been meant to shock and quite a lot of it’s based mostly on two issues: 1) Who’s doing the promoting. 2) Who really made it. IF I might create this (Justin Roland’s artwork), and there’s a good probability that I may really do it. I don’t count on it to promote to even 1% of how a lot Roland offered it.”

“It actually provides you the query of what’s artwork. As a result of it’s an NFT and on chain, you may not less than have a good quantity of provenance that proves that the artwork is made by Roland, which I assume is what the customer actually cares about.”

Gabby Dizon, Yield Guild Video games


The story: Native crypto exchanges delisting Ripple

Mark principally stated XRP is a safety due to the way in which it was arrange. And that since PH SEC legal guidelines are patterned after U.S. securities legal guidelines, there’s an opportunity that the native SEC may formulate the identical view round XRP. This is identical view as Bexpro’s blockchain lawyer Rafael Padilla.


The story: Yield Guild Video games has partnered with League of Kingdoms.

However first what’s YGG? 

Gabby: YGG is a play-to-earn guild. It’s a gaming guild that gathers folks from world wide in order that they will earn crypto by taking part in video games with blockchain-based economies.

He stated YGG’s first efforts had been round Axie Infinity however they scouted different video games that may create yield for the gamers. 

League of Kingdoms is a technique recreation much like Conflict Royale. The participant’s land can principally earn DAI (which is pegged to $1.) YGG purchased over 1,000,000 pesos of Land on League of Kingdoms that the gamers will develop. The land is housed in YGG’s pockets that’s co-owned with the guild members.

“We’re going to be issuing them tokens that symbolize a fractional share of that land.” 

Mark: (Who seems very impressed with the concept.) So it’s like a cooperative?

Gabby: YGG is principally a cooperative. We need to flip avid gamers into buyers. We search for video games with promising economies, we do the upfront funding however gamers are available in to assist develop the land as a result of with out them we don’t get the rewards, they usually bought a share.

Luis stated Gabby had all the time wished to put money into land, after which right here it’s, simply digitally. 

Luis ended the present with the weekly raffle and that he was positive Yield Guild shall be again on Bloomcast by February. Mark Vernon stated he has one thing to announce subsequent week.
