♪ ASHLEY: BITCOIN BEGINNING THE SECOND HALF OF 2018 WITH A BIG BOUNCE. RIGHT NOW, AS YOU CAN SEE, THE CRYPTOCURRENCY UP $765 AT $6630, GOOD FOR A 13% GAIN. NOW, BITCOIN TUMBLED FROM NEARLY $20,000 IN DECEMBER, HIT A LOW OF $5,755 LAST SUNDAY, AND THERE HAVE BEEN CASUALTIES ALONG THE WAY WITH. OVER 800 DIGITAL TOKENS HAVE PAID THE ULTIMATE PRICE ACCORDING TO A WEB SITE THAT TRACKS CRYPTOCURRENCIES. THESE ARE INITIAL COIN OFFERINGS OR THAT ARE NOW WORTH LESS THAN ONE CENT. CRITICS SAY MANY OF THEM WERE NEVER BE LEGITIMATE, MAYBE EVEN SCAMS. HERE TO WALK US THROUGH IT ALL EXCLUSIVELY THE CAMERON SHELL, THE CHAIRMAN OF ICOX INNOVATIONS. ALL RIGHT, CAMERON, WHEN YOU HEAR THINGS LIKE THAT, 800 SENSE OF SAFENESS, IF YOU KNOW IN THE AIR.>>WELL, CRYPTOCURRENCY REALLY AND LIKE ANYTHING THAT’S REVOLUTIONARY, AS IT COMES IN, YOU’RE BOUND TO GET, YOU KNOW, A RUSH OF NEW PLAYERS AND/OR NEFARIOUS DEEDS. THE REALITY IS THAT CRYPTOCURRENCIES ARE USHERING IN THIS NEW ERA OF TRUST, AND SO AT ICOX, FOR EXAMPLE, WE’RE WORKING WITH ORGANIZATIONS, LARGE BRANDS THEIR SUPPLY CHAIN, HAVE STRONGER TRUST RELATIONSHIPS WITH THEIR CUSTOMERS, AND WE THINK THE FUTURE OF THIS AND THE FUTURE OF INVESTING INTO CRYPTOS ISN’T GOING TO NECESSARILY BE INTO SMALL, UNKNOWN START-UPS, BUT MORE INTO BIG BRANDS AND LARGE ORGANIZATIONS THAT ARE USING THIS TECHNOLOGY FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE CONSUMER AND TO YOUR CUSTOMERS OF USING THIS TECHNOLOGY. WHAT’S WRONG WITH THE CURRENT BANKING SYSTEM?>>WELL, THE CURRENT SYSTEM WORKS, BUT WHEN ANY NEW SYSTEM COMES IN THAT DOES OFFER EFFICIENCY — AND, EFFECTIVELY, THIS EFFICIENCY IS TRUST IN A WAY THAT YOUR CONSUMER OR YOUR PARTNER DOESN’T NEED TO HAVE A REFERENCE POINT, IF YOU WILL, OR AN EXACT DIRECT RELATIONSHIP WITH YOU AS A CUSTOMER BUT CAN ABSOLUTELY TRUST THE TRANSACTION THAT’S HAPPENING, THAT’S GOING TO REDUCE FRICTION. SO, ULTIMATELY, IT DOES REDUCE YOUR COST, INCREASES YOUR BIT OF A FALLOUT IN THE BITCOIN I THINK YOU’LL SEE THE EMERGENCE OF STRONGER AND STRONGER BRANDS AND LARGER AND LARGER COMPANIES BUT WHEN WE SEE LEGISLATION COME ACTUALLY MOVING INTO THE MARKET. MANY PEOPLE HAVE TALKED ABOUT US BEING IN A BUBBLE, BUT THE REALITY IS FOR US AND I THINK MOST OF THE WORLD, WE HAVEN’T EVEN SEEN CRYPTOCURRENCIES HIT THE MAIN STREAM. WE’RE NOT REALLY IN A BUBBLE, I’LL CALL IT A PRECONDITION WHICH ARE LESSONS LEARNED FROM THE DOT.COM ERA WHERE WE’RE PREVENTING A BUBBLE FROM HAPPENING. ASHLEY: SEEMS TO ME THAT EVERYONE THAT’S LOOKED INTO THIS IS BLOCK CHAIN TECHNOLOGY IS THE HAS A LOT OF POTENTIAL.>>WELL, THE REALITY OF BLOCK CHAIN IS THAT IT’S MORE THAN A TECHNOLOGY. IT’S SOMETHING THAT ACTUALLY CAN GAUGE AND QUANTIFY TRUST. AND, AGAIN, I’VE SAID IT BEFORE AND I’LL SAY IT MANY TIMES IN THE FUTURE, TRUST IS THE ULTIMATE CURRENCY. WHEN WE’RE TALKING ABOUT CRYPTOCURRENCIES AND BEING ABLE TO APPLY SOMETHING THAT INEVITABLY INITIATES A ENVIRONMENT WHERE YOU DON’T ON THE ECONOMY IS NOT MORE — IS
