Also seemingly refuses to recognize the distinction between block chain technology and crypto.

SEC took a really public and embarrassing  beating today.  Former director Hinman will be deposed in part of the pre trial discovery of the Ripple vs SEC lawsuit.  Wonder what he will say in regards to why he met with ETH foundation a week before declaring ETH was not a security and how his law firm (which paid him millions while he was the director of the SEC) sits on the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance.

Is that for real? That seems like it has to be highly illegal, not just a conflict of interest.

i like the part where he says they completely failed.

seems like it'd be simpler to just ban that crap, but ok.

I -thought- the solution to this was to build into the system a kind of ledger so you could easily trace each transaction on the blockchain. Seems like a win-win, but I guess we’re not there yet?

We’re almost there!

Does that person think the SEC regulates money?

“Excuse me I would like to speak to the manager of money.”

So what “rules that govern doing stuff with money” are they talking about.
