There are shameless paid crypto shillers pushing junk, and the SEC could do some good about that problem, but they won’t because the shillers aren’t movie stars.

I think probably what's going to happen is that major CEXs and wallets will become the gatekeepers for DeFi, through their "interface apps". They will offer projects integration with their "registered interface" in exchange for large token stake & revenue share.

Word
when it comes to crypto regs, D.C. types have mastered the art of trying to ban the creation/deployment of certain types of software with regs/laws that talk about the software as if it is a person and must 'register' and comply with rules U.S. cryptolaw is not going well...

Today we talk about #XRPHolders amici brief, Hinman emails, why this case is the most important thing in crypto today and much more with @chukathy.
Should #XRP be classified differently than #Ether, #Bitcoin? That’s at the heart of whether @secgov can deem #XRP, other #crypto #securities. @JohnEDeaton1 weighs in Thurs, 10/6 at 12:30 PT/3:30 pm ET! RSVP on Fireside 👇 & subscribe to @truthdaoxyz YT: bit.ly/3M9WgIX

It’s pathetic.
Replying to @TawfikAlfred
Not particularly. It's amazing and frustrating to me that Trump and Biden were really the best that America was able to offer.

This 2 page letter reply by @Ripple is very important.
#XRPCommunity #SECGov v. #Ripple #XRP Ripple slams the SEC and the SEC’s opposition to the I-Remit and TapJets motions to file amicus briefs. “If the SEC cannot evaluate the veracity of such claims then it had no business bringing this litigation in the first place.”

Glad to see Charlie jump in this because it was so obvious. Watch the video he made about it. The dude was giddy.

Why would the SEC try and hide something that everyone knows is true? I’ll bring up staking and being able to collateralize your XRP to obtain a financial benefit independent from Ripple - a benefit from the token itself. Everyone knows this to be true!

But watch the SEC act like they don’t know if that’s true when they reply to my brief. The fact that @SECEnfDirector allows his attorneys to argue things they know they lack a good faith basis to argue is pathetic.

But then again, I guess the SEC has backed itself in a corner because it is in fact arguing that when Time Magazine accepts XRP for payment, Time magazine acquired an unregistered security. Desperate theories require desperate actions.
