I believe that's the main lesson to be learned, right there
I'm not sure. If we summerize this whole affair, we get:
- a new Internet scheme coming from nowhere – at least not identifiable – allows exchange of tokens that resembles payment schemes
- this scheme bypasses and is completely out of control of the big banks and Wall-Street financial milieu
- those Wall-Street financial milieu is actually bankrupt as could be witnessed in 2008
- if that particular Internet payment scheme succeeded, all the Wall-Street banking sector would be useless and would stop being "Too Big To Fail", since a replacement would exist
- an unknown teenager gang sets-up a fraudulent "investment" broker valued at 32 billion by those very Wall-Street banks and financial sector under the very nose of all supervisors who don't see anything wrong with it
- said broker goes bust as would be expected by anyone with half a brain
- said Internet payment scheme gets bed publicity
So .... a thing that the government and Wall-Street bankers – who are for all intents and purposes the same people – can't technically control gets "unexpectedly" bad propaganda which will lead to FUD about said Internet payment scheme that said bankers cannot otherwise control and/or destroy.
Hum ... stinks of a con-job by Wall-Street to me.
