Aiming for Simple

IOTA Receives Crypto Ratings Council Rating
The Crypto Rating Council has formally issued its rating for the IOTA token in April. The Crypto Rating Council is composed of industry-leading crypto businesses committed to a common framework to assess digital assets for adoption in the United States.

This score follows case law and SEC guidance to determine whether a digital asset may be considered a security now or in the future.
