DAR's Matthew Gertler quoted in TheStreet:
"Matthew Gertler, a senior analyst and counsel at Digital Asset Research, identifies two key considerations regarding cryptocurrency regulation. The first is jurisdiction, and the second is token characterization.
'Every jurisdiction is different in not only how they regulate cryptocurrencies but also in how they regulate areas such as securities, commodities and money transmission,' Gertler explained. 'Although certain jurisdictions, such as Switzerland and the Isle of Man have developed cryptocurrency-friendly regulatory frameworks, many others refer to existing regulations to govern the technology and others have provided no guidance at all.'"
