When #cryptocurrency projects distribute their native #tokens straight to their customers' wallets.

Important or insider knowledge, notably about the value of #digital assets such as #cryptocurrencies and #NFTs; a measure of an investment's return over and above that of the market or other benchmark.

Formerly used to describe any #cryptocurrency that wasn't #Bitcoin; however, #altcoin is now used to describe any new cryptocurrency with a low market valuation.

Acá dejo 2 artículos del livestream del lunes pasado. Si quieren saber más sobre lo que se comentó al respecto pueden ver la grabación en el YouTube de @bitcoinemb y escuchar el episodio sobre Forks de @TuneBlock en #Spotify 2/16……
Recientemente el caso de #TornadoCash nos abrió los ojos respecto al poder de los reguladores para censurar direcciones e interacciones de usuarios valiéndose de intimidaciones hacia diferentes empresas. 3/16

46.000 personnes ont perdu un total d'un milliard de dollars dans le crash des #cryptos cette année.

Voici comment éviter d'en faire partie 👇
La #crypto attire les gens qui veulent devenir riches rapidement. Mais en vérité, vos investissements en #Cryptomonnaies ne doivent viser qu'un seul but :

Préserver vos fonds et rester investi sur le long terme !

Ça n'empêche pas de s'en mettre plein les fouilles en passant.
La gestion de portefeuille #Crypto est la compétence d'utiliser les bons outils et modèles mentaux pour améliorer vos rendements financiers.

Tout est disponible gratuitement sur Internet et leur utilisation n'est pas difficile.

Mais rester discipliné l'est !

With the speculation around #TheMerge turning #ether into a #security, it's important to understand:
- what the conditions for ruling sth a 'security' are; and
- what this will mean for miners, DeFi protocols, and DAOs.

Context: #Ethereum is moving from a proof-of-work to a proof-of-stake system, where ppl need to invest/stake in capital to validate new blocks. Anchored in the Howey Test, professor @AdamLevitin argued that this transition will likely turn ether into a security.
Howey Test validates whether a sales/transaction is considered a security and should fall under its law. Its validator components include:
1. Investment of money
2. In a common enterprise
3. With an expectation of profits
4. Solely from the efforts of the promoter/a third party

For over a year, I wouldn’t accuse Hinman of violating the law. I only maintained that he may have and that the appearance of impropriety deserved an investigation. Since then however we’ve learned that @EMPOWR_us caught the @SECGov in a lie, trying to cover up the issue.
The SEC claimed there were no emails or documents responsive to @EMPOWR_us’s FOIA Request.

Empower sued the SEC in federal court and discovered that there are in fact emails related to a conflict and the SEC was forced to turn some of those emails over.

On page 24 of its opposition, the SEC attempts to split proverbial legal hairs by conceding #XRP is not a security per se (“this case presents no such question”), while simultaneously arguing all XRP, including XRP traded in today’s “secondary market … represents” a security. 👇
Remarkably, the SEC claims it is not arguing XRP is a security per se, but instead, arguing XRP is a representation of a security.

What does that even mean?

When does an asset transform from being an asset (🥃, an 🍊, 🦫 or #BTC) to also “representing” an investment contract?
The SEC must prove #XRP IS an investment contract. But the SEC unilaterally changed its burden to proving only a “representation” of an investment contract.

The SEC doesn’t get to make up the law in order to satisfy a political desire to regulate a new evolving asset class.

A 🧵 about a few Facts and Dates proving the lawsuit 🆚 @Ripple & #XRP was a weapon:

1) In 2103 @chrislarsensf gives a presentation to regulators including the @SECGov,
@federalreserve, #FinCEN, etc, discussing his plan to utilize the #XRPL and how he intends to distribute #XRP;
2) Two years after that meeting, in 2015, FinCEN & DOJ enter into a settlement w/ Ripple declaring #XRP a “convertible virtual currency” and force Ripple to register #XRP sales w/ FinCEN - NOT the SEC - (the SEC is made aware of the deal and its terms pursuant to info sharing);
3) On June 13, 2018 SEC Enforcement Lawyers write ✍️ a legal memo 📝 analyzing #XRP under Howey and these enforcement lawyers DO NOT conclude #XRP is a security and it SO NOT recommend an enforcement action or a cease and desist letter against Ripple;

La ley cripto de Panamá 🇵🇦 acaba de ser VETADA por el presidente de ese país, significa que por los momentos no se legalizará el uso de criptomonedas.

Triste enfoque y gran oportunidad perdida para ese pais.
Recordemos que la ley cripto de Panamá, entre otras cosas:

1. Legalizaba el uso de criptoactivos como #btc #ether y otros

2. Reconocía a las DAOS

3. Permitía la tokenizacion de minerales

4. Planteaba un proyecto de identidad digital basado en blockchain
Sin embargo el prólogo de la ley, señalaba que se utilizaría la tecnología #blockchain para hacer más transparente la función pública.

Y tal como lo dije en distintas conferencias, me parecía MUY RARO que el gobierno de panamá aceptara ese elemento 😉

At Consensus and listening to @ethereumJoseph answer questions. The moderator is from @novogratz’s Galaxy Digital. Clearly, they are paying attention to Twitter and the claims of token concentration and the disguised whales as they move to PoS.
Joe Lubin was asked about the comment by @GaryGensler that Joe owned 10% of #Ether from the Genesis Block and was asked if he would disclose how much #ETH he & @ConsenSys owns. Joe declined providing his or Consensys’ holdings, but did say it’s never been close to 1/2 of 1%.
Three other interesting comments: 1) Joe claims he hasn’t accumulated any more #ETH since the Genesis Block but Consensys is accumulating leading up to the Merge;

Bruce, maybe you have the time to spend on Twitter and count how many times someone is tagged. If I was tagged 10K times w/in the last week it wouldn’t change my availability. Quit acting like people are scared to engage or debate you based on your immediate timetable.


I actually have no idea what you want to talk about or debate. Is it whether today’s #XRP is a security? If so, I have written detailed 🧵s laying out my analysis on why it isn’t. Is it whether the #XRPL is centralized or decentralized? I’ve put out 🧵s on that as well?

Is it challenging my claim that Hinman violated criminal conflict laws or Title 5? I’ve laid that out in detail. Is it regarding the #Ether Free pass and the time line I’ve challenged anyone to dispute?

A bipartisan #crypto bill was introduced yesterday, 7 June 👀📝

Also known as the Responsible Financial Innovation Act, @SenLummis and @SenGillibrand proposed a regulatory framework for digital assets in the bill. Here are the key takeaways in case you missed it:

1️⃣ Definitions

The bill recognizes #crypto as digital assets and makes a clear distinction between tokens that are considered securities vs. commodities. The class a token falls into will be evaluated by its purpose and the rights conveyed to its holders.

Based on the legislation, most #cryptocurrencies like #Bitcoin and #Ether are defined as "ancillary assets" which fall under commodities.

#RegPills 💊

Resumen de proyecto de LEY CRIPTO presentada hoy en EEUU🇺🇸 por @SenLummis y @SenGillibrand

Abro HILO🧵
La presentación de esta propuesta de ley en #EEUU marca un hito bipartidista INTERESANTISIMO, porque las senadoras Kirsten Gillibrand (demócrata) y Cynthia Lummis (republicana), de forma conjunta lo han dado a conocer.

Es decir, de entrada hay CONSENSO entre ambos partidos.
"EEUU es el líder financiero mundial, y para garantizar que disfrute de mayores oportunidades, es fundamental integrar los activos digitales en la legislación vigente y aprovechar la eficiencia y la transparencia de esta clase de activos, al tiempo que se aborda el riesgo"

1. Dear All, I would like to debunk the rumors, that I have been hiding due to #crypto market crash. Every year on beginning of May I go for vacations with my family, and I spend time with them not working.
2. I understand that it was very thought time in the market but to be frank nothing has changed with my investment thesis and these price that we have today are great buying opportunity for #Bitcoin and #Ether, and...
3. if you don’t exceed certain percentage level of exposure on your total investment portfolio you should think about using these levels to accumulate more. (Not financial advice). However please remember that this is and will experience great level of #volatility,

2021, la plus grande adoption institutionnelle des #cryptomonnaies de tous les temps ?🤔

Les investisseurs institutionnels se sont rués sur la #cryptomonnaie et la finance décentralisée, et ont fini par reconnaître que les cryptos devenaient incontournables.


BlackRock 🤑demande à la SEC (gendarme 👮‍♂️de la bourse 🇺🇸) l'ajout à ses fonds de produits sur le #Bitcoin .

Les seuls investissements autorisés sont des contrats à terme sur des #bitcoins réglés en espèces 💵et négociés sur des bourses enregistrées auprès de la CFTC.

La plus grande banque allemande 🇩🇪 @DeutscheBank prévoit de créer une plateforme d'échange d'actifs numériques.

Elle le fera via des courtiers de premier ordre, et des bourses approuvées pour assurer la sécurité 🔒et l'accessibilité à des actifs pour ses clients.

is a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist who wrote a great story on this case some time ago. To his credit, in the story, he acknowledged claims related to conflicts of interest. I remember discussing the $15M paid to Hinman in “retirement benefits.”
I responded that its very easy to classify ongoing payments as “retirement” and skirt the rules. We now have clear proof that that is exactly what occurred.

Hinman had a financial interest in the ongoing success of his law firm WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY BEING EMPLOYED BY THE @SECGov.
As Chairman, Clayton blessed the plan to bypass the ethics rules. It is now well settled that Clayton and Hinman’s law firms were directly tied to Ethereum.

Is it a coincidence that Clayton was the ONLY Commissioner to receive and give input in the #Ether free pass speech?

If #bitcoin is sound money, how is #Ether @ultrasoundmoney? 🧵 👇🏻
1/ Among proponents of #bitcoin, one of the widely endorsed narratives is that of bitcoin or digital currencies being sound money.
2/ This idea of sound money stems from the fact that unlike government-issued fiat currencies, which rely on fractional reserves; with decentralised digital currencies, there is no individual or group with executive power who can change the fundamental attributes of the currency.

Stefan, most people (not #XRPHolders) underestimate the incredible advantage the free pass gave #Ethereum, @ConsenSys, etc. Ironically, it was @ethereumJoseph who understood just how much of an advantage it was.
On August 5, 2020,
Lubin falsely claimed:

“There are only two decentralized protocols on the planet right now that are sufficiently secure enough and decentralized enough so that they can be trusted. Those are #Bitcoin and #Ethereum.”
Lubin added that #Bitcoin is too difficult to program, and therefore, for ALL developers of “value tokens”, #Ethereum is:

“the only game in town.”

@DigPerspectives @digitalassetbuy @TAIGxrp

Why haven’t the trade associations or crypto leaders spoken out against the SEC or appeared as amicus on behalf of the industry?

When ETH was given a free pass was part of the deal @Ripple and #XRP would be the sacrificial lamb?
Have you listened to @GaryGensler lately? He talks about picking a high profile project and going after it as a way to send a message to the entire industry. Gensler met with Clayton in March of 2018. Gensler was aware Ether investors met with Hinman asking for the ETH free pass.
Watch the👇 video. Genlser scoffed at:

“a group of venture capitalists went into the SEC.”

He said:

“they’re sort of saying – believe us, we get you, we’re with you, SEC – but we have a bunch of clients who are going to evolve to be a consumable token …”

In simple words, if a single unit of #Bitcoin is always equal in value to another BTC, each NFT has its own digital signature and cannot be exchanged for one another. However, they can be sold and purchased online – many of them can be bought only with #Ether, so setting up… the respective wallet is the first step towards owning one of these digital masterpieces. OpenSea, SuperRare, Nifty Gateway, and Foundation are just some of the popular platforms that make a global NFT marketplace. WHY WOULD PEOPLE PAY FOR WHAT THEY CAN SCREENSHOT FOR FREE?
Well, this is definitely the most common question asked in relation to non-fungible tokens, which became especially relevant after, in March 2021, Jack Dorsey sold his first tweet ever as an

2012: Perkins Coie (the same law firm that helped write ✍️ Hinman’s #Ether Free Pass Speech) informed @chrislarsensf #RippleCredits (aka #XRP) IS NOT a security;

The 2012 memo warned Larsen there was a risk under the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA);
The 2012 legal memo 📝 stated that the law firm’s “analysis has never been tested by FinCEN in practice, and therefore reliance thereon is not without risk”;

The Perkins Coie 📝 was spot on b/c in:

2015: FinCEN sued @Ripple claiming it had violated the BSA;
FinCEN’s suit against Ripple was the first civil enforcement action against a cryptocurrency industry player - a case of true first impression in the industry;

Ripple settled paying 700K and agreed to comply w/ NON- SECURITIES regulations;

Maintenant, vous saurez ce que ça veut dire.
