On November 2, Gensler referenced instances of SEC enforcement against crypto lending startup BlockFi and a former Coinbase employee to explain the agency’s actions on violations of U.S. securities laws in prepared remarks at the Practising Law Institute’s Annual Institute on Securities Regulation.

The SEC would use a treat like cases alike approach to enforcement proceedings under Gary Gensler, regardless of the kind of securities, funds, or investors.

“If you fail to register a security as required, or to register appropriately as an investment company, you violate the securities laws, regardless of the ‘form’ or ‘name’ of the securities involved,” Gensler said.
