The exchange issued an explainer on GitHub describing its vision. Coinbase finds the right way to regulate the industry is through a distinct framework. It offers to define digital assets as financial assets that use DLT and blockchain.

Thus, the US legislators should recognize that all digital assets, among them digital representations of traditional financial assets, are supervised by the new rules.
