Today, Monday, September 30th, an initiative that seeks to categorize tokens that have to be considered securities will be made public.

The initiative is a joint effort of giants of the sector such as Coinbase, Kraken, Circle, Bittrex, and others. It assigns a value between 1 and 5 to the different projects available today in the crypto universe.

The rating will assign Bitcoin a score of 1 (in the category of currency or value reservoir) and 5 to those projects that are considered securities – equating them to shares, participations, quotas, etc.

It is important to remember that the American regulation bans assets that will be classified as securities from being traded in non-regulated platforms. That puts several cryptocurrency projects at potential risk.
