To put it simply, the most important reason people in the crypto world care whether or not a project will be labeled a “security” lies in the fact that securities have to be registered and have to follow rigorous regulations that don’t translate well into the crypto world. After all, it is the wild wild west meets a brave new world and their rules do not conform to those of the old finance world.

Being perceived as a security is why some of the best crypto projects have had a lot of difficulties, and some of them…
