    3. Why Cryptoassets Are Not Securities

      Why Cryptoassets Are Not Securities

      FTX’s collapse reiterates the need for comprehensive U.S. regulation of crypto markets. This regulation must have a solid legal foundation, a key pillar of which is a workable framework to distinguish cryptoassets[1] that are securities from those that are not.

      The Attack on Share Buybacks
