Why Tokens Should Be A Security

The ICO community is afraid of being labeled as security tokens, when there is no reason to be. The ultimate goal of the SEC is to protect ordinary investors and prevent them from being taken advantage of by fraudulent entities. Many compliance requirements, such as disclosures and filings, help to clarify token buyers’ expectations and rights. Limiting certain sales to accredited investors and setting investment limits for non-accredited investors help to protect those who cannot afford to lose money on high risk investments.
