The U.S. division of cryptocurrency exchange FTX will introduce enhanced scrutiny of tokens for possible securities compliance. Lawyers will rely on the Hoey test to analyze assets.

The exchange will also publish a review of the asset with a detailed explanation of the position as to why they view a particular coin as a commodity rather than a security. If the review finds that the asset potentially has the characteristics of a security, the exchange will suspend its listing in the U.S. until the asset is legally registered.

In addition, the head of FTX advocates complying with all sanctions, highlighting in particular OFAC's restrictions and the creation of lists of unsanctioned addresses which are updated in real time.
