Thread on the backgound of Diane Culligan, who claimed in May to control a bizarre breakaway club from #MillwallLionesses & husband Anthony, a former shirt sponsor's owner (which recently declared Insolvency at the High Court).

An off-site page of this thread unrolls at its end.
FYI @kelly_noble1 @MichelleYoung90

Anthony David Culligan, b.1963, (husband of @Diane_Culligan) owns 31.73% of SETL Developments Ltd, Co. Number 09704844

Mrs Culligan became Director of #MillwallLionesses, June 2018 & assumed Notifiable Control of @FAWC_ club, Oct.2018

#MillwallLionesses bore the one of the brand logos of Mr Culligan's #TechStartup company, namely as "SETL Blockchain" = @SETL_io

Dall'età della pietra esiste il "contante", fino alla #moneta (moneta legale, moneta bancaria, moneta commerciale, moneta elettronica).
Siamo sicuri, sicuri che un sistema GLOBALE #cashless sia la panacea? Or evil?

In the case that never sleeps, #Bitfinex filed its Reply to Vacate the April 24, 2019 Ex Parte Order. First: congrats to lawyers working on Cinco de Mayo. You know a defendant is pissed when its lawyers file stuff on the weekends!…
1) Let's get into what the lawyers had to say: Bitfinex's lawyers' first arrow is that the OAG failed to explain how tethers qualify as a security or commodity covered under the Martin Act. Ultimately, this is a TERRIBLE argument for Bitfinex. #RegulatorsAreGoingToRegulate
2) Bitfinex lawyers have gone from "we have fully cooperated" to "the OAG has asked us for #blunderbuss document demands." Wait, I thought #Blockchain was about transparency and Bitfinex was fully cooperating. #ICalledBSBeforeAndIStandByMyAssertionOfBS

The @BBFC #AgeVerification "Certificate Standard" has been published.

This is the document which is being proffered to protect the facts & details of _YOUR_ online #Porn viewing. Let's read it together!

What could possibly go wrong?…
@BBFC Well, that was fast:

"this is the foundation of the non-statutory, voluntary age-verification certification scheme (the Scheme)"

"Only age-verification providers that meet the requirements of the Standard…will receive certification"

What happens to the ones that don't?
@BBFC [ Incidentally, I am going through this in real time with a mug of coffee, so there may be some jumping back and forth. Don't expect perfection. ]

1/3 Odyssey hackathon was an epic journey, unbelievable what you guys @OdysseyHack pulled off! Thanks to all the participants, jedis, Rutger and Stefan, APG, @wavesplatform support and personally to @sasha35625 for making @Tradisys team participation possible! @g1zm0, u rock!
2/3 #Tradisys, of which I had the honor to be the team captain, showed incredible team spirit, coming back with a genius idea after the initial project got completely trashed after the first day and winning the Rething Retirement Track. Worth a movie one day, definitely :)
#OdysseyHack is over, #OdysseyIgnite just starting :) kick-off incubation day with APG and other stakeholders on Good-Around Project was a blast!

I might not be making money yet myself, waiting for my #ALTs to moon, but at least I'm useful to someone(my best friend since Jr. High and college roomate).

$PINK $PIVX $ONG $MTL $LIFE (I'll mention the other good coins when I'm able to get in on them 😀). Must pump these first.
#bitcoin doing well since my "extremely bullish" proclamation to my friend about 25 minutes ago at the bottom of the most recent short-term dip.

Give the fuck up, bears! You're done for! #MuellerMayhem incoming!

Saturday morning - time for kids cartoons and ... a (ramen-free) Twitter thread on tokens and securities law! Today’s starting point: this excellent article (…) by Guillermo Jimenez in Decrypt.
2/ Jimenez looks at the concept of “consumer token offerings” through the lens of the recent sales by FOAM and Civil, companies backed by @ConsenSys. Both sales were open to the general public and not limited only to “accredited investors”.
3/ Why are these sales and how they were conducted so important? This goes to the heart of what in my view is the most exciting aspect of #valuetechnology: the ability to use the tools that comprise “#blockchain technology” to create new business models.

The great misunderstanding [thread]

There is no such thing as “#blockchain technology”

It does not exist!

Those pieces of technology exist: cryptography (hash, signature...), network protocols, data structures & query languages, etc.
When Uber launched, nobody said: “Uber is crap, but Geodemand technology will cure cancer & save the world”

There was indeed some hype about “Uberization”

Even if it was overhyped, people realized that Uber innovation was its *concept* -> linking unused supply with demand
People wanted to copy Uber *design* re-assembling some of its tech components (app, geoloc, etc.) for other purposes

So the real thing that’s happening now is “Bitcoinization”

People realize Bitcoin *concept* is innovative: secure P2P transactions without a single validator

It’s not a #blockchain problem because nobody is trying to double-spend

There are 2 issues:
1. secure storage of digital proofs
2. validity of the proofs themselves
1. It is entirely possible to build a centralized secure storage

*Append-only/Persistent databases can be implemented centrally

This old paper…

This more recent report…
*Transparency is easy to achieve: simply expose the data on the internet

*Resiliency is achieved through backups, disaster recovery, etc.

1/ Thanks for a fun discussion w/ @WallStreetBTC, @ronqman--many great ?s abt what #Wyoming's #blockchain laws mean. 3 big things for attys to dig into: (1) law of possessory security interests--lots of precedent--means #WY law may apply to #crypto lending/prime brokerage tx even
2/ if you structured it not to, (2) direct ownership + bailment = v investor-friendly #custody regime--doesn't exist in #securities custody today. Many ppl who want custodians to be just service providers, not counterparties, will love having this option (esp HNW & fiduciary
3/ investors, such as mutual & pension funds, etc) & (3) #Wyoming's long history of favorable tax & privacy laws (+culture of defending these)=powerful combination. I forgot to mention WY has 25 Opportunity Zones:…. We'll host event in WY in May-deets soon!

2/ Best quote: "As the founding director of the #Delaware Blockchain Initiative, I cannot stay silent about a law (the @uniformlaws Supplemental Act) that would extinguish the power of #blockchain technology to clean up problems in capital markets." So much here--will post more
3/ .@AndreaTinianow explains how #Wyoming confers "super-negotiability" to digital assets. She calls super-negotiability the "holy-grail" of commercial law (called the #UCC). I'd worked w/ Andrea before but hadn't realized she's a UCC expert from her prior work in #Delaware--wish

0/ The last day in February is here. Already over 15% through the year!

As always, there was a ton going on in the #blockchain/#crypto space today. Let's look back at some events from the past 24 hours!
