Carlton Fields blockchain attorney Andrew (Drew) Hinkes was quoted in a Forbes article about digital securities laws in the U.S. and around the world. While the U.S. does not provide bright line rules to define securities, countries with bright line rules often use the same criteria used by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Hinkes told the publication.

"Other jurisdictions with a so-called bright line often perform the very analysis animated in the Framework document created by the SEC to assist blockchain entrepreneurs," Hinkes said.
