He stated after the sceptical senators noted that there is a possibility that some cryptocurrencies could be classed as conventional stocks. 

Per Toomey (Penn.), the top Republican on the panel, said: 

“Crypto tokens have varying degrees of decentralization, they usually do not have a financial claim on the issuer […] These are very major and important differences from traditional securities, and they merit a clearly stated and tailored regulatory framework.”
