The time is now to set the example for the digital asset market and emergent technologies more broadly. Stop sitting on the sidelines and reporting on the decisions of others. Let’s make some meaningful decisions ourselves in good faith and in the interest of the affected community as a whole. If we succeed in this endeavor (and we believe we can if the court is willing to work with us), we will demonstrate clearly to the market that we the people, when we share common cause, are capable of fighting for what is GOOD, especially when doing so necessitates a reasonable amount of voluntary self-sacrifice. It is only in voluntary self-sacrifice that a TRUE win is possible, and this can only occur IF we are ALL willing to assume some amount of personal cost. Now is our time to make this decision & we at CWF pray it is the right one, for the sake of the many and the industry as a whole.
