Attorney John Deaton, a well-known legal figure within the crypto space and Managing Partner at Deaton Law Firm, has delivered on his promise of a “big announcements.” Less than 48 hours after teasing his nearly 300,000 followers with three hints, Deaton took to the stage to unveil three significant developments in a live video broadcast.
Steven Nerayoff Interview on Crypto-Law TV
In a move that has piqued the curiosity of many, Attorney Deaton announced that Steven Nerayoff, an early advisor to the Ethereum network, would be featured as a guest on Crypto-Law TV. Nerayoff had recently found himself at the centre of a debate regarding Ethereum’s Initial Coin Offering (ICO).

Nerayoff alleged that federal authorities had fabricated a case against him due to his in-depth knowledge of Ethereum. He went as far as implicating high-ranking individuals at the SEC, FBI, Department of Justice, and Ripple in this plot. However, the authorities dropped the case against Nerayoff earlier this year. Attorney Deaton revealed that Nerayoff would use his appearance on Crypto-Law TV to shed light on the circumstances surrounding his indictment, promising insights into a significant and controversial chapter in crypto history.
Joining Spend The Bits as Chief Legal Officer
For his second announcement, John Deaton revealed a career move. He disclosed that he is joining Spend The Bits, a cryptocurrency payment solution powered by the XRP Ledger (XRPL). While Deaton sported a Spend The Bits T-shirt during the video announcement, he explained that his decision to join the project was not taken lightly.
He shared that he had previously declined offers from various crypto projects but became intrigued by Spend The Bits due to the team’s dedicated development efforts. After extensive discussions, Deaton proudly declared that he is now a part of the company, holding roles as both an investor and Chief Legal Officer (CLO).
“Food Stamp Warrior” Book Release
Attorney Deaton concluded his trio of announcements by revealing the launch of his book, titled “Food Stamp Warrior.” This highly anticipated book has been in the works since March 2020, just a few months prior to the SEC’s charges against Ripple for allegedly offering and selling XRP as an unregistered security.
Deaton’s book delves into a range of societal issues, including topics such as race and addiction. During his announcement, he opened up about the internal struggle he faced when deciding whether to publish the book, hinting at its potentially controversial content.
The crypto community is buzzing with excitement over these major announcements, as Attorney John Deaton continues to be a central figure in the legal and crypto landscapes, both for his legal expertise and his active engagement with crypto-related matters. The revelations he has made are poised to captivate and influence the industry in various ways, from legal insights to crypto payment solutions and thought-provoking literature.
