no text needed

10.10.2019 – Alex – The Case Against Trusting Facebook’s Libra Project

0:30 lots of our customers are Millennials, they know something is wrong with our financial system & with the economy, they are buying Bitcoin as doomsday insurance and use 5..10..20% of their income to buy Bitcoin for a rainy day

1:20 The people that brought you fake friends are now bringing you fake blockchain, Libra doesn’t solve the economy issue

3:00 You will see hundreds of millions of people join, once we created the ease of use, that’s part of what Celsius Network is trying to

4:20 The questions is: Can we use decentralization, the blockchain, all these technologies to create an institution that acts in our best interest

4:45 Forbes wrote an article about Celsius saying “Finally the banks have somebody to worry about.” Because we earn interest income just like the banks, but we give 80% of that back to the depositor, where banks give 80% of it back to the shareholders.

6:35 Facebook is creating the awareness and the trust that crypto and blockchain are things that the average Joe should be able to trust, but it will be interest income that’ll be the killer DApp for mass adoption

12.10.2019 – Alex – Celsius Network Dominates Galaxy Digital

6:20 “we have the lowest rates for loans in the industry, because we don’t just make money from charging the interest on the dollars, we also lend out your Bitcoin to institutions like Galaxy Digital, they give us collateral and they pay us 4 – 5 %, sum it up and take 80% of it, that’s exactly what we pay stablecoin depositors”

8:30 “Celsius just surpassed Galaxy Digital in terms of total assets held – we went from being number 15 to number 2 in AUM”

9:20 “we paid more Bitcoin to more people than all the other crypto companies together, Binance, Coinbase, BlockFi, NEXO, Salt,, all the DeFi guys …”

10:10 “When Coinbase or Binance make money, they keep it to themselves, but the question is: Are you just another toll collector, or are you here in the decentralized movement trying to revolutionize the world and make this world a better place?”

12:25 “we need to reward the HODLers, not the speculators or toll collectors”

15:15: “You want a global revolution? You want to bring in billions of people? And they all gonna have to be tech savvys? It’s just not gonna happen! .. The Crypto System the way it’s build today is not build for scale, it’s not build for mass adoption..”

18:25 “Coins sitting in cold storage are covered by $100 million of insurance per account, we have over 100 accounts”

19:40 “we need more utility and less volatility”

22:05 “the only ones that can finish the race and take bitcoin to 100k and beyond is more retail users, more users that come for utility, for store of value, long term appreciation, ..”

26:00 “we are looking for ambassadors all over the world”

11.10.2019 – Leah & Alex – LAB Radio: Providing benefit above all else

3:00 “crypto is providing a lot of volatility, but not a lot of utility – and I think that until the blockchain delivers a service that everyone needs we not gonna have mass adoption”

8:45 “there is a misconception that the blockchain is this amazing thing that will solve all of our ills.”

9:05 “it’s only good for a very few things”

9:30 “so if you build something that can only be done using the blockchain, then you achieved something”

11:55 “we have zero lockup’s and we have no minimums – so when you talk about a killer DApp and mass adoption with the one thing that every single person on the planet needs – passive income – you have to make it accessible to everybody”

13:40 “we want to be as transparent as possible so it just gives a distinctly different feel than when you go to your bank”

15:15 “we have a whole generation that doesn’t know what the concept of earning interest is”

15:50 “Banks make a tremendous amount of money on our money and don’t share it with us”

21:25 “it’s about making sure we are all pushing the cart in the same direction”

25:25 “if you have lived outside the US, you know the need that’s out there for this project”

36:10 “there isn’t a single institution in the financial world that can look you in the eye and say they are working in your best interest”

13:45 “we loan to over 180 institutions, we get to see their balance sheet and assess the risk”

14:30 “ we have seen assurances from Bitfinex that have assured us of their assets”

16:00 “Deutsche Bank is leveraging 50 to 1, for every $1 you gave them as deposit they are lending out $50, we never have more than 1:1 leverage, we are underleveraged compared to any bank”
