While I understand the rationale for the SEC deferring law-advising to private sector lawyers, it is amusing to me to imagine how different the law and regulations would be if the government was required to provide taxpayer-funded lawyers to advise on every law/reg they pass.
Everything that's wrong with America's inept regulatory state in one sentence:

Launching a bitcoin sidechain *is* starting a new chain, except the native token is easily 1:1 convertible to the most liquid cryptoasset (BTC) & inherits all of the brand recognition, goodwill, community, etc that comes along with bitcoin. Huge mistake to miss that opportunity.

💯 "Sometimes, programming feels like magic: you chant some arcane incantation and a fleet of robots do your bidding. But sometimes, magic is mundane. If you’re willing to embrace the grind, you pull off the impossible."

How many products can you say- "X changed my life." What are products that have done this for you? (Obscure ones for extra credit, please)

Good question re: mobilecoin centralization
If it's this centralized, it's it really a *coin instead of just a financial security with extra steps?

What stops mobilecoin from becoming another EOS, LBRY, TON, XRP? Is that really the kind of liability Signal users should be exposed to?

Thank you @rohanagarwal94 for sharing your story and raising awareness that this kind of extralegal discrimination is still happening to crypto startups. Agree it is totally uncalled for. I hope you're able to get it sorted and back in business asap.
Replying to @rohanagarwal94
@vipulsaini594 and I started @Cypherockwallet to bring peace of mind in Crypto self custody. We believe in Crypto but we haven't broken any laws of the land. What ICICI did was completely uncalled for and shows ignorance & risk-averse at the root level.

Replying to @lightcoin
In practice, we’ve seen people unwilling to devote the dev time and money to developing a lot of in-demand features as bitcoin sidechains. Maybe eventually. But yes, incentives matter.

Could have used the most popular, liquid cryptocurrency (BTC) via MobileCoin-esque sidechain, rather than a new, illiquid token few people have heard of. Seignorage is a hell of a drug.
