Topic 2: Will mention Coinbase getting the green light to trade ICO’s deemed security:
https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-07-16/coinbase-says-it-has-green-light-to-list-coins-deemed-securities
but just as a transition to an ICO being deemed a security by a florida judge:

Topic 3: Speaking of ICO’s being security, i want to discuss TokenPay (TPAY) and their threat to sue me.

And I dominated their google search for days:

I have 3 screen shots of the company threatening legal action against me. I really want to know how people like me and other journalists/bloggers/researchers should deal with this. We might also take a look at their coin since I’ve done the research to see if it’s a security based on Topic 2.

Topic 4: – If there is time:
