At the _____, Joseph Lubin of ConsenSys admits before a crowd when questioned that Ethereum is not decentralized, but that they’re “working on it”.
Lowell Ness is a partner with Perkins Coie who bragged in October 2018 at BlockCon (see previous entry) about the role of the Ethereum Free Pass Memo in formulating the Hinman Speech.
In this video he clearly states Hinman personally told him “he was going to approve” the memo’s proposition “and give guidance”.

Now-former SEC Chairman Jay Clayton is hired by One River Asset Management, a crypto hedge fund that “quietly” made a huge financial bet exclusively on the two assets named in Hinman’s 2018 speech – bitcoin and ether. One River’s $600 million position in BTC and ETH, according to Bloomberg, was completed a few weeks before the Ripple lawsuit was filed.
Ethereum co-founder, Joe Lubin, speaks on EOS – an Ethereum competitor. He discusses how the “SEC recently gave the EOS project a slap on the wrist for its token sale.” He goes on to add that in spite of that the SEC would “shut down a sale structured like the EOS sale today before it could put up its first billboard.”
