“Even tailoring what the disclosures might be, because maybe not all of the disclosures for somebody issuing equity are the same as a crypto token. But I would note we don’t have the same disclosures for an asset-backed security that we do for a stock offering,” Gensler said. “So it’s a thoughtful way to sort of tailor things.”
