接下来我们来扒一扒，AXA Strategic Ventures，引用reddit的一篇帖子，https://www.reddit.com/r/btc/duplicates/576ac9/bilderberg_group_axa_strategic_ventures_funds/
This is a very simple break-down:
Bilderberg Group -> AXA Strategic Ventures -> Blockstream -> Blockstream Core Devs
The Bilderberg Group is an international group of the wealthiest and most powerful, with a mission to unify the governments of the world. (Seriously, it's on Wikipedia).
Blockstream is directly funded by The Bilderberg Group, as the CEO and Chairman of both the Bilderberg Group and AXA are the same person, Henri de Castries.
This is Henri de Castries. Henri de Castries is referred to as "the most powerful man in the world" (here)
The following post includes links which show the clear connection of all the above groups:
So, it's not a stretch to say that one of the most coherent and powerful groups in the world is making a play at controlling "the new money."
They get it. Bitcoin is small now, and they can buy it via Blockstream for a mere $55 Mil. They control the board now, so they can push whatever agenda they want to Blockstream.
So why is Blockstream trying to centralize and control Bitcoin via LN? Because then Bilderberg owns Bitcoin completely: they can afford to own the main LN hubs.
It's really that simple folks.
This is why everything is happening the way it is. It's why the Scaling Bitcoin conference has nothing about on-chain scaling. It's why Gavin Andresen and similar devs were smeared and outcast. It's why any proponents and efforts of on-chain scaling are attacked.
You can call it tinfoil hat thinking, but fully read the link above first and think it through.
