It is worth noting that at the time of publication of the CoinDesk note, it was already known that representatives of the Ethereum community voted against the unlocking of 513 000 ETH on Parity wallets, and the developers of Parity Technologies assured that they did not achieve the new Ethereum hardware. Since then, the material CoinDesk has been repeatedly edited, but the screenshots of the original text can be easily found on the Internet.

Vitalik also reported on "gotchas".
