Yesterday after the SEC persecution of LBRY trial. Great to see so many come out in support–definitely felt like the olden days. The SEC was SEC-ing like the gang of federales they are, but I was impressed with the judge who seems to understand that he is unnecessarily destroying livelihoods and an important crypto market leader for no other reason than the SEC is unwilling to say WTF they want. Weak people and institutions, beholden to no one with unlimited taxpayer funds, play these kinds of very expensive and destructive games. Shameful, SEC, just plain shameful. Putting American entrepreneurs and family men out of business for spite. (I’m not pictured because I took the photo.)
Judge Barbadoro also said two very important things: THERE WAS NO FRAUD (i.e. no victim; no crime, this is simply the state aggressing against people they don’t like, in other words, this is a pure and simple case of POLITICAL PROSECUTION) and NATIVE TOKENS ARE NOT SECURITIES & secondary markets are exempt.
Here’s the Union Leader coverage. I hope to write my full report soon.
