Ep. 34 - Fundraising for Alexey Pertsev & Roman Storm's legal aid
This week, Matthew and Brileigh are joined by Ameen Soleimani. Ameen is a co-founder of Spank Chain—a payment platform for the adult industry—co-founder of Iran Unchained, a non-profit providing humanitarian aid in Iran—and a member of Moloch DAO, which has provided funding for open-source projects on Ethereum, including Tornado Cash. In this episode, Ameen tells us about the recent history of Tornado Cash: how it got started, what led to the arrests of Roman Storm and Alexey Pertsev, and why Ameen is taking a stand to fundraise for their legal defense. With Alexey’s trial coming up in March 2024 and Roman’s later in the fall, legal expenses range from $90k - $100k/month. The next 6 months will be crucial in shaping their defense strategy and their arrests carry serious implications for developers’ rights to publish open-source software. Ameen and other supporters formed WeWantJusticeDAO which engaged an international team of legal counsel to represent Roman and Alexey. Justice DAO has launched a crowdfund on Juicebox and all funds raised until February 22nd will support the legal aid of Pertsev & Storm. Alexey and Roman need your help to defend the right to privacy and the right to publish code.

Watch this episode on YouTube: https://youtu.be/OWt_zWWoFz8 In this episode, Brileigh and Matthew host a round table discussion about the upcoming Ticket To Space documentary being launched via StudioDAO which tells the story of Yan Kejun, a MoonDAO member from Beijing, who will be sent to space on an upcoming Blue Origin flight. Guests include director Fernando Urdapilleta, producer Susie Conley, MoonDAO co-founder Pablo Moncada-Larrotiz, and StudioDAO co-founders Kenny Miller and Rachel Leventhal. This wide-ranging conversation touches on the complex themes explored in Ticket To Space: decentralized organizations and coordination, blockchain technology and the state, U.S.-China tensions, and private vs. public space exploration. Ticket To Space will be the first feature length film about a DAO and is being produced in collaboration with StudioDAO, a decentralized movie studio. This DAO meta-narrative is another layer of the story that will unfold over the next few months as production continues. Stay tuned for future episodes in this mini-series.
