  1. Power is all they care about, so voting them out is our biggest weapon.
  2. Is it kind of weird that there is all of a sudden this focus on the Hinman speech about BTC and ETH (not even about XRP)? Like others have said, ultimately Ripple needs to get a ruling on XRP. Weirdly, I have almost lost sight of Ripple being the defendant here, and it almost seems like all the work Deaton, DAI and others have done to uncover corruption may actually be coming to light. Ripple just got access to notes from the meetings literally with Consensys and the DA Working Group that are on the timeline. I can't pretend to know what's going on behind the scenes. It just seems like the judge has agreed to look into some of this stuff.
  3. Rest assured, even if Gensler isn't that stressed over throwing Hinman under the bus, this order will be keeping certain enemies awake at night. Hinman and the Eth Foundation/Alliance/whatever the feck name they use to break rules, Lubin and some of his cronies, the Andreesen peeps involved. Feck them all. I know we need resolution with the SEC as opposed to any of those scumbags, but that will come if we are patient. In the meantime, no qualms at all about throwing a world of hurt (or legal fees) at the feet of all these other dirtbags. Feck em. It looks like legal battles are starting to pile up for Consensys too, so the VISA news was clearly a PR move to counter all of that.
  4. I assume the email chain will give light to how "his own opinion" was constructed. As in how many instances are there in writing of other SEC employees agreeing/green lighting/signing off on this speech. I guess they will still argue personal opinion, but that becomes a weak argument at trial, to say the least, if Ripple can show in writing that it was clearly not his own opinion.
  5. Ok ok ok...seem to be some juicy things in there. Valerie Szepanick is now in the spotlight, and the email chain containing the draft of Hinman's speech must be turned over. Juicy juicy!
  6. Makes me even more inclined to accidentally trip or headbutt one of these SEC officials should I happen to pass them by.
  7. need to learn more about this Quant QRC-20 token update. Could be very big if that will no longer be considered an ERC-20 token.
  8. I have been out of touch for a week or two. Is XRP price movement just related to this SOLO airdrop?
  9. "create our own reality through words" is a familiar Joe Lubin quote that comes to mind here...
  10. hahahaha coinbase showing XRP at $4,523,177.72. These mfers are just trolling us aren't they.
  11. Yea there is definitely something around the Consensys, Quorum, JPM deal that isn't right. Early Consensys shareholders are already suing over what they claim was an artificially low asset valuation around this deal. Something along the lines of Consensys selling a bunch of ETH, UNI, etc. to JPM at a much lower than market price in a deal that would move these assets from Zurich back to the USA. All to allow for JPM to run Consensys' eventual IPO.
  12. Nice. I have never listened to this guy's show, will have to look for this one.
  13. Man, that is another killer thread by Deaton. Clayton and the 2 commisioners who voted FOR this action are dirty dirty rats. I'd find it hard not to headbutt Clayton if I saw him.
  14. Yes, it's beautifully put. Our collective sense making apparatus is broken down, largely due to the effects of social media and the algorithms that run the platforms. Reversing it is going to be incredibly difficult but monumentally important at the same time. I find it as a positive sign that it's not THAT hard to find people who agree that these things have broken down. It may be a somewhat obvious observation, but so what. Admitting there is a problem always needs to be step 1. In a sense though, that's just like looking at a car with no engine and understanding it won't work. But if you're not a mechanic, you wouldn't know how to get it running again. I believe the majority of people (no matter what they think politically) could have a conversation about this and come to an agreement that it needs to be fixed. But how? I think a shift away from the social media platforms will help, but they have essentially infected the heavy users. If we had societal doctors, I think the prescription would be a heavy dose of listening. Not to the people you disagree with (as that would be torture at first). But listening to a range of voices who discuss the root causes of these issues, and not just the symptoms. I have personally found it wildly helpful to listen to conversations (podcasts) where the people are open to having their minds changed, and excited to have their own thoughts challenged by others. I think it is vital, in western culture at least, that my generation (millennials) with young kids (and the education system quickly turn this corner, so that our youngest generations can be positively influenced. I don't have kids personally, so maybe schools are already doing this, but I would be supportive of more classes on civil discourse and culture, even if it took time away from some of the traditional coursework.
