SEC Says Ethereum Is NOT a Security


SEC, Ethereum is Decentralized

The Howey Test holds when it comes to Ethereum. The SEC, after investigating and researching the Ethereum Protocol, have determined that Ethereum is not a security.

Due to the decentralized nature of the Ethereum network, no central authority has the ability to manipulate the system to defraud investors. It is essentially a tool, not a security issuance with an expectation of future gains.

Certain ICOs, may be considered securities however, if they raise funds with the expectation of returns from their investors. Also, if the tokens represent part of a company that has centrally managed assets, then it could be susceptible to SEC scrutiny as well.

All things considered, this is great news for the crypto community at large.
