"This is really about how we bring basic investor protection to protect people against fraud and manipulation and it's an area that's been rife with fraud and abuse."

They view themselves as “cops” not regulators which is a big part of the problem. They sit back and wait for people to make mistakes instead of offering guidance. I would like to blow the whistle on the SEC! 🕶 https://t.co/9KJdFwIIlv

Hey @GaryGensler , what makes @emo_jamie_dimon ( Jamie Dimon ) more special than the 30,000+ crypto investors who signed a petition for you to investigate Jay Clayton?
Your work is to protect investors NOT THE BIG BANKS. Get your priorities right!

Chairman @GaryGensler and the SEC must lay out clear guidelines on what cryptocurrencies they view as securities. Regulation by enforcement is extremely objectionable and will kill domestic innovation.

@CGasparino someone is feeding you a line. #Eth has problems, That's why they're switching to Proof of Stake 2.0, and even that's a stretch for a solution. @ewarren just made the example in yesterday's hearing that ETH Fees were $500 for $100 transaction. https://t.co/vwAv2u65Wp

The SEC is not only claiming when @Ripple sells the token it’s a security, but it’s arguing that ALL XRP - including secondary market sales of XRP by non-Ripple entities - are ALL unregistered securities. The SEC is hurting users and developers utilizing the XRPL. 👇 Its absurd! https://t.co/GiZWapi0E6 https://t.co/kYvhKMK9Yr

What may need to happen w #Crypto regs is a creation of a new separate reg agency. It's too much of a grey area now & @SECGov is regulating through enforcement, which is always opaque. It's turning out to be like insider trading, which is defined based on who is running the govt

Maybe someone can answer this basic question: What is the real difference between XRP and @ethereum. I get was the @SECGov is saying re @Ripple ie that it was financed by XRP. BUT wasn't @ethereum financed through an ICO?
Wednesday, September 15th, 2021 at 9:30am
As I do my reporting on @Ripple case and @SECGov's definition of what is or isn't a security, I find that @GaryGensler -- at least according to past statements--is even more draconian than Jay Clayton. He suggests @ethereum is a security. Try putting that one back in the bottle

It appears @SECGov #ETHFreePass has provided an unfair head start,while holding the rest of the industry down with Regulation through litigation. Picking winners and losers. Credit @larry_lithium @CGasparino @RoslynLayton @RepTomEmmer @ewarren @JohnEDeaton1

Sometimes reality combines strange coincidences: Gensler goes into full berserk mode, scattering uncertainty and fear that everything could be security, while Ripple just wins the legal battle.

Coinbase has worked closely w the SEC for years. They pride themselves on this. They always tell the SEC before they list a new coin.

Today (Sept. 2021), Gensler said that Coinbase may be selling unregistered securities.

@nietzbux Kind of makes you wonder if they were gathering evidence, building a case, giving false assurances, and setting them up the whole time. The SEC let Coinbase go public. If there's a better way to intentionally maximize the harm to US investors, I don't know what it would be.
