Does this also free you up to discuss the action that was taken up until now or are you still gagged?
I was never gagged, per se. I just felt it'd be better to remain quiet.
The action was a voluntary request to produce information regarding Surf Capital Management and BBBB. Apparently, the SEC agents saw a version of the BBBB prospectus I had posted on LinkedIn and thought it was enough to investigate whether or not "violations of federal securities laws had occurred." So, after numerous phone calls and hours of producing documents they decided that they had bigger game to hunt. Therefore, ending their investigation.
I worked closely with Philip Moustakis, who is head of the new SEC "Digital Currency Working Group," a sort of gov't task force set up to prosecute Bitcoin securities fraud. I also worked with another SEC attorney in Chicago, David Benson. I won't say it was a pleasurable experience - and it definitely didn't help that I was unable to access financial documents from the GLBSE and BTC-TC, etc. What the SEC didn't realize is that their intimidation of the 'little guys' here on Bitcointalk is causing innovation in this area to cease. The p2p Bitcoin financial markets in 2009-2012 were way more robust than they are today.
