A trading update is meant to inform by posting key metrics. You can therefore assume that any company posting an operational update which excludes the key metrics has something to hide, that is to say bad news. And that brings us to a July operational update from Argo Blockchain (ARB).

In the first half of 2022 Argo Blockchain (ARB) burned cash despite the bitcoin price averaging $37,000. With the bitcoin price higher than it was but nowhere near $37,000 let alone a level that would ensure cash neutrality, the company’s shares were ramped up to 17p on the basis of some low grade pumping. After the pump…

I start with bollocks talked all round today about bailing out those suffering mortgage misery. Blah, blah, blah. Then it is on to bitcoin and Argo Blockchain (ARB), a deep dive into the stinkiest deal done in eons, Hydrogen Utopia (HUI) is the culprit. Then I look at Conroy Gold & Natural Resources (CGNR), more nonsense from Chill Brands (CHLL) and why Bidstack (BIDS) may go bust and why I hope it goes bust. En passant, I mention Cook’s Coffee (COOK) and the disgraced Andrew Monk who IPO’d it.

For reasons I cannot explain the bitcoin price surged in the first quarter of calendar 2023 so Argo Blockchain (ARB) prospered right? Er…wrong. Quarterlies out today are dismal and what it does not say about the current balance sheet should have shareholders running for the hills.

Vinanz (BTC) The sub scale bitcoin miner which does crazy deals with pals of its founder David Lenigas listed on the Aquis lobster pot at 3p. Its shares are today, despite Lenigas personally hoovering up any (loose but wise) sellers, still just 3p to sell as nobody is buying the Lenigas bull. Since Lenigas and his pals like Richard Poulden got in at 0.25p they don’t care but instead the company serves up another bullshit spoof.

No this is not a five-day late April Fool. David Lenigas really is on the cusp of listing a new bitcoin mining company on the Aquis Lobster Pot, Vinanz. Aquis today announced that First Sentinel is the advisor without any moral qualms and it has applied for a listing. But there is already one red flag flying here and it concerns Richard Poulden’s Aquis listed joke company Valereum Blockchain (VLRM) which we have exposed on this website numerous times.

Then Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) which sounds madder by the day. It certainly does not understand economics. Then nanosynth (NNN) and finally Omega Diagnostics (ODX). I wonder how this Saltire flying Scottish dickhead is doing these days?

Then gold vs bitcoin, Enwell (ENW), Ferrexpro (FXPO), Harland & Wolff (HAWL), Argo Blockchain (ARB), Powerhouse Energy (PHE) and Pantheon Resources (PANR) before ending with Vast Resources (VAST) where a placing at 0.1p is surely being attempted after today’s incomplete news.

The great lie pushed by those supporters of bitcoin and other crypto currencies was that supply of bitcoin was limited by the halving formula. So, we were assured that while promoters of shares or funds or any other asset would always match demand with new supply, bitcoin was different. Of course, that was just misleading.

Then I look at bitcoin and its woes, Argo Blockchain (ARB) – bust by next week? – Revolution Beauty (REVB), Boohoo.com (BOO), Novacyt (NCYT) and Nightcap (NGHT) and the problems a CEO has when the media blows smoke up his or her arse for too long.

This will, in years to come be seen as a case study in the invisible hand and creative destruction, that is to say capitalism at work. In times gone by when all the sort of poltroons who believe in Modern Monetary Theory also predicted that the bitcoin price would keep on soaring ad infinitum, there was a rush to build new mining plants in places where there was stacks of spare land and good hook-ups to readily available power, i.e. Texas.

Bitcoin is crashing once again, and now trades well below $19,000. According to Peter Schiff, the charts point to $10,000 as the next stop. Therefore, shares in Argo Blockchain (ARB) should be suspended first thing Monday; here is why.

Bitcoin did not crash during Q1; that happened later. As such, today’s Q1 numbers are irrelevant. Even so, as you would expect from the scallywags who run this company, Argo serves up a masterclass in the study of what a “profit” is. It is, of course, just a matter of opinion.

Bitcoin has rallied overnight, and is back above $30,000; that will, no doubt, convince more millennials that BOTFD is the way to make money in a Ponzi. But will the rally continue? If not, this poses – as I flagged up yesterday, here – massive questions for Argo Blockchain (ARB). Bear raider, Boatman, which exposed a host of red flags at Argo, took to Twitter to raise additional issues, and we followed up with an e-chat.

Apart from on bitcoin, analyst, Gerald Celente, is bang on the money. He kicks off this podcast with the scamdemic, and the resulting actions of governments around the world. He states that one country after another is acting in lockstep, attempting to ‘flatten the curve’ by locking you down and putting you out of business. Then the vaccines came but, contrary to general belief, did worse than nothing. We in the West adopted the Chinese way of suspending our freedoms.

I start with events in Ukraine and offer a few thoughts. But I also look at a few companies notably Eurasia Mining (EUA), Versarien (VRS), ADVFN (AFN) – one of which is, I think, a buy – and also, en passant, the fraud that is Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and in the context of bitcoin tanking, Argo Blockchain (ARB).

I start with some thoughts on Ukraine and Russia which some of you may disagree with. Perhaps what is happening there will be a handy excuse for Eurasia Mining (EUA) to ‘fess up to the lack of bid? Then onto how bitcoin and other cryptos are faring as a safe haven right now. And why that makes Argo Blockchain (ARB) such a monumental sell. It could utterly implode. I see that more than 25% of posts on the ADVFN Bulletn Board,a few hours ago,were on Shield Therapeutics (STX) with nearly all of them slating me for all the usual reasons. I do not play the man here even though my critics do seem to have the collective IQ of a Cheese sandwich, but the ball and answer each of the bull points made to rebut my bear thesis in turn.

Then there is Amigo (AMGO), Chill Brands (TOAST), MyHealthchecked (MHC), Novacyt (NYCT) and Argo Blockchain (ARB) in light of today’s NFT nonsense but also the collapsing bitcoin price.

I am rather taken with the new cleaning lady the Mrs has hired. She scrubs up well, works hard and her views on a range of issues including masks, vaccines, inflation and the role of the state are thoroughly admirable. And hearing myself and Lucian discuss how mining companies claim to be ESG friendly by hiring loads of lesbians, she thought that a good joke and remarked that my work seemed interesting. That would not be how the Mrs would react, both to the joke and the description of my work. I mention all of this only because Agnieszka has been arguing with her 12 year old son who wants her to invest her wages in bitcoin.

The highlight of this dossier is Boatman demonsrating how Argo’s (ARB) rebuttal of its allegations about a dodgy Texas land purchase made in dossier No 1, just does not stack up. One might even say Boatman shows Argo was telling porkies. Then there is the really sniffy related party investment in a company in all sorts of regulatory scrutiny because of its involvment with disgraced broker Pello and its “colourful” boss Andy Frangos. And it goes on and on. As Boatman points out, if you believe in electronic tulips there are many ways to play bitcoin without buying into Argo’s forest of red flags. Anyone owning these shares is mad. The dossier is below.

The cash crisis at Argo Blockchain (ARB) becomes more evident by the day which is why, though this company is heavily operational and financially geared to the price of 21st century tulip bulbs, its shares have massively underperformed bitcoin during its recent sharp rally.

Bitcoin is unique because it isn’t controlled by banks or corporations and works as a form of digital gold. He believes bitcoin is in the process of monetization around the world.

However, they have redefined the CPI, and today if you use the old model, inflation is running at close to eight percent.

The final part of Tuesday night's Nigel Wray UK Investor City forum was a debate on bitcoin, blockchain and goats between myself and Dominic Frisby. I think I had the best jokes though Dominic is the comedian. Anyhow it was fun and, I hope, informative. The next Wray City Forum is on December 3rd so put the date in your diary now.

Forgive a brief historic digression at the start of this podcast but I start with a history lesson for those misguided souls who think that SinnFein/IRA brought peace and happiness to Ireland. Then I look at some other tossers from Ulster, First Derivatives (FDP) and the 3Xs. I comment briefly on Purplebricks (PURP) and Versarien (VRS) then move via BCA Marketplace (BCA) to Neil Woodford. Then it is onto MySquar (MYSQ), Symphony Environmental (SYM) and on to UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) with a few words for Dominic Frisby on the nature of bitcoin and its bubble ahead of our bust up next week in London.

In today's bearcast I look at the idea of a bear market on AIM, Cenkos (CNKS) as its CEO walks (again), Versarien (VRS), Plutus Powergen (PPG), First Derivatives(FDP), Mysquar (FRAUD), Mayan (MYN) and Wolfe Minerals (WLFE). Due to a bit of a mix-up there are a newly available handful of tickets to next week's wine, canapes, Falanx (FLX) and Premaitha (NIPT) evening in London with me ripping Dominic Frisby apart on blockchain and bitcoin as a bonus. To grab your seat for 16 October book HERE

There are now fewer than 30 places left for the next Wray family organised UK Investor evening seminar in central London. So if you want to book a slot do so now HERE. The event kicks off with drinks and canapes from 5.30 with the first talk just after six. It will be a packed evening.
Falanx (FLX) has a 20 minute presentation and will take questions for another ten or maybe more. As a supportive e but long suffering shareholder I have a couple of questions myself. Then it is Premaitha (NIPT) which presents for twenty minutes but will face another twenty minutes of questions INCLUDING A NUMBER FROM ME !!!!!
There this then a session where I plan to tear into bitcoin and blockchain believer Dominic Frisby about the ponzi he appears to think holds water. Then more drinks and canapes.

First things first. If you want free booze, canapes, a chance to see me rip Dominic Frisby apart on blockchain and bitcoin and to hear presentations from and quiz Falanx (FLX) and Premaitha (NIPT) then book a seat for 16 October in central London HERE. In today's podcast I look at Premaitha (NIPT), Avanti Communicatiuons (AVN), Cabot Energy (CAB) and the scandal it won't discuss, Greka Drilling (GDL), SpaceandPeople (SAL) and add to Gary's piece on a CEO who should be going straight to jail and not collecting £400 on the way, Brian McMaster of Jangada Mines (JAN).

In the podcast I look at the madness of Corbyn once more in relation to the Natural rate of Unemployment in a non broken economy. I add to my earlier comments on troughery at Frontera (FRR) HERE by showing it is bankrupt. I cover Concepta (CPT), Fishing Republic (FISH), the Widecells (WDC) scandal and Wolf Minerals (WLFE).

When I visit my dad, he urges me to take away one or two of the zillions of books in his house. Naturally I want to please him and do as requested but I am equally conscious that the Mrs reckons that our house in Bristol has too many books and that my suggestion that she bin her sociology books to make way for more of mine is not a runner. And now Joshua is collecting book after book as well...

I am not sure where this first apperared but thanks to the reader who emailed it over. I have tweaked it to remove the name of a famour journalist as I can live without another lawyers' letter. But the core message stands about botcoin and all the other crypto bubbles is fair. Enjoy.

Andrew Left of Citron Research is one of the sharpest cookies in the global shorting conspiracy. He has just recorded an interview on CNBC discussing two blockchain/bitcoin shorts in the US. Change your name and your shares soar even though there is nothing there? Sound familiar Clem?
Left's two targets are Bitcoin Investment Trust (US: GBTC) and Riot Blockchain (US:RIOT). Enjoy...

In this bearcast I look at the issue of share buybacks at this stage of the stockmarket cycle in general but with reference to Domino's Pizza (DOM) in particular. Then I look at the bitcoin bubble explaining why it is NOT a currency and why it will in due course pop as Goodhart's Law kicks in. But you'd be crackers to have a position either way right now

I am not so sure. But here is the raging bull case put by Peter Spina. In this podcast he discusses the cryptocurrency space and how it is similar to the dot-com boom of the late 90’s. No one knows how all of this will play out, but it is all but certain that crypto will play an essential role in world finance. Spina feels that both gold and cryptocurrencies are complimentary. You should be careful and protect your wealth in precious metals and only speculate in the crypto market. It is a new technology with much potential that creates a much more free and open marketplace. But...

Like the rest of us, Jeff Berwick has been surprised by just how good the crypto space has done this year. He was telling everyone to buy bitcoin back in 2011 and has continued to recommend it. Jeff compares cryptocurrencies to the beginning of the Internet. It feels like we are entering the Internet 3.0 and Wall Street seems to be finally catching on. The bitcoin market is still tiny, and if it ever gets valued anywhere near gold, it will still go up thousands of percent. The entire thing is bizarre and mind-blowing.

Libertarian Peter Schiff is a great hero of mine and I am glad to see him calling Bitcoin out as a bubble.

I still really do not understant bitcoin but it seems to grip fellow libertarians like Dominic Frisby and, in this case, resource guru Doug Casey. In this Palisade Capital podcast, Doug discusses the commodity markets and why the most important thing is what they do cyclically. Most commodities are down 50% since 2011 and the dollar has lost 20%. Commodities remain quite cheap, particularly gold, silver, and copper. He discusses Junior miners and why now is a good time to get into these markets.

I really do not get this bitcoin shite at all, however much my pal Dominic Frisby tries to explain it to me. I just fear it will end in tears but I am cognisant that some folks have made a complete killing on it so far. In a podcast with Palisade Capital, sector guru Michael Pole makes some bold calls. Is this just the start of the gold rush or are we close to dotcom bust in 2001?

Naturally Sprott Asset Management, as the world's best known resource investor, favours gold but, and this may surprise you, it does see a case for bitcoin exposure. Its latest monthly report discusses the battle: Bitcoin vs Gold. Over to analyst Trey Reik who writes:

There are so many radically extreme events that are happening, or will likely happen soon in the world economy, we have to be very careful. In Jeff Berwick’s 20+ years of market investments, he sees this as the most difficult time for investors. He suggests getting a lot of your money out of the markets by holding precious metals, other hard assets, and bitcoin.

I do not understand Bitcoin, blockchain technology and the like. I leave that to smarter folks like Dominic Frisby who will be presenting on it at Gold & Bears and my good friend Jim Mellon who will – I’m sure – mention it in his G&B talk. This could all be the next phooey hype but it could be big so I’m getting a small exposure via Coinsilium – a two year old blockchain investor listing on ISDX later this month. I’m backing Jim’s judgement on this one.
