Ripple goes public about Bill Hinman with the release of the emails.
1/ It’s been 5 years since Bill Hinman gave his infamous speech – and through the SEC’s lawsuit against @Ripple (and 7 court orders), we can finally share what happened behind the scenes through the now public emails / drafts of the speech.
It’s absolutely unconscionable that a regulator – when presented with so much pushback on what he was about to say / how he compiled this fake “test” in the first place – decided to move forward anyway, and throw an entire industry into chaos.
IMO, @Ripple’s CEO is showing great restraint here. After a 2 1/2 year investigation, he was personally sued - in a non-fraud case - where it was alleged that he was reckless in not knowing #XRP was a security in 2015 when SEC enforcement lawyers themselves couldn’t determine if…
What’s important about this meeting on August 18, 2018 is that on June 13, 2108 Clayton and Hinman received an XRP Memo analyzing XRP under Howey. Had the 📝 concluded XRP was a security, you would expect Hinman and Clayton to respond to @bgarlinghouse’s “purgatory” comment with:…

Bank of China Investment arm launching tokenized notes on Ethereum and you and Pocahontas are killing Crypto in US.
Don't worry about reading it yet. @FilanLaw will be up in a few hours to post everything. The money shot is in the Ripple 56.1 in opposition to the SEC's MSJ. 3/3
Same ‘ol dopey Charlie.
Fascinating stuff. I know the knee jerk from the #XRP community will be this proves a “fraud.” It doesn’t. It does prove @HesterPeirce’s argument—we need a safe harbor in #Crypto; we need to stop regulation by enforcement and Congress needs to set digital-coin ground rules NOW
Classic Buterin tweet
Looks like the Ripple/XRP team is sinking to new levels of strangeness. They're claiming that their shitcoin should not be called a security for *public policy reasons*, namely because Bitcoin and Ethereum are "Chinese-controlled". 😂😂

The market must be protected from the current tyrannical @SECGov Chair.
Last night I joined @CNBC to talk about the #SECStabilizationAct and my plan to #FireGaryGensler.
The Hinman emails show that the @SECGov itself is totally confused on how to regulate crypto. It is incredibly dishonest for @GaryGensler to claim that the rules are clear when the rule makers themselves don't even agree on them. But it is downright evil for the SEC to bring…
Yesterday we filed a comment letter on the @SECGov proposed rule that seeks to expand the definition of exchange to include DEXs. Tl; dr: this proposal should NOT be adopted, and certainly not before completing the threshold steps for any rulemaking. 1/11
