Would YOU donate money to help the Bastard of Bitcoin?

Here's the hook they are using to scare you into donating:

Quote
​The case the SEC is bringing forward – if won- would establish a very dangerous precedent that says anyone exchanging bitcoin could be SELLING SECURITIES, thus subject to SEC regulation, SEC scrutiny, SEC investigation, and SEC legal action. This would include peer-to-peer bitcoin exchanging, all trades at Shotoshi Square in NYC, miners selling bitcoin, basically anyone that touches bitcoin and later trades or sells it would be under the scrutiny of the SEC. If you’re not registered with the SEC – or if you have engaged in these types of activities in the past without being registered - you could be fined tens of thousands of dollars per transaction, or worse, jail.

Do you believe the hook?

"anyone exchanging bitcoin could be SELLING SECURITIES" -- Isn't the only reason the SEC is involved that it was a ponzi scheme? He was selling shares/securities, not bitcoin.

That's true, it was a Ponzi scheme but his attorney may present the idea that Bitcoin itself acts as a security.

I am pretty sure the definition of "security" means that it is backed by some kind of asset (by contract). Bitcoin isn't backed by anything, certainly not legally. That's a pretty far stretch to make, IMO.

Government around the world is out of control.

Who give them the right to interfere with 2 voluntary parties conducting transaction?

When did I say that? I want to know if you'd fall for it and donate because his attorney is trying to scare you.

Wow. This guy really has no shame. I would consider a donation to the prosecution but they collect that before I even see my pay check each week.

If not Karma then the SEC.... or maybe Death himself... yes that will do.

Dead or alive you're coming with me.

I can't imagine anybody wanting to donate to his defense fund.

I'm pretty sure this is a scam and not set up by Trendon's lawyer.

Not that I would ever donate to such a silly cause of course.

But people should be cautious.

Nope, it's real. I called the firm and verified it.

But the government can run the biggest ponzi scheme there is?

Because he failed to actually end up with very much at all, funnily enough. Out of 200k btc that he should have had he only ended up with 150k USD. ~$0.75 a coin.
