Jack Dorsey says Ethereum is secure.

Recently, there has been a lot of discussion about the regulation of cryptocurrency and events such as crypto exchanges being sued for offering unregistered securities. This has led to varying views from experts and high-profile individuals on the state of specific cryptocurrencies. One such opinion came from Jack Dorsey, the former CEO of Twitter, who stated that Ethereum is a security in response to a question from a Twitter user named Ali. Many people were offended and disagreed with his comment, while others referred to him as a clown. Blockchain developer and consultant Udi Wertheimer also called Jack a clown, to which Jack responded by asking for more information. Udi then posted a 21-second video showing the SEC claiming in 2018 that Ethereum was already sufficiently decentralized not to be a security.

This tweet about Ethereum being a security came at a critical time in the crypto industry when the topic of crypto regulations and whether specific cryptos are securities or not is on the rise. This is also one of the reasons the particular tweet piqued people’s interest.

This is not the first time Jack has made comments that don’t align with Ethereum’s best interests. He has previously shown a preference for Bitcoin and has criticized building projects on Ethereum, stating that developers building on Ethereum have at least one single point of failure, making the project unappealing to him.

The SEC has sued several cryptocurrency companies for failing to register certain cryptocurrencies, including Ethereum, as securities. Efforts are still ongoing to assign a specific classification to Ethereum and other cryptocurrencies. No final decision has been made at this point, and it remains uncertain how it will end. It is possible that Ethereum will not be classified as a security, and thus the SEC will not be required to regulate it, or vice versa.
