TRANSCRIPTION OF VIDEO: Hello and welcome to Legal Briefs Crypto-geek edition and today I attended the SEC v. Ripple hearing – made very easy by a cool new invention called the “telephone” and Wow, this was a very special hearing because there were two yes two Bombshells and so on a scale of 1-10 this hearing was an 11 for Ripple.
