Could using blockchain require registration with US regulators as a broker or exchange?

Polsinelli Shareholder Richard Levin was recently interviewed by Intelligent Trading Technology A-Team Group in an article titled, "US Regulation Experts: Blockchain Could Require Exchange Registration."

Richard states, “If you’re in digital currency or blockchain, but what you’re doing looks an awful lot like the futures or derivatives market — or an equities market — you may need to register or at least talk with regulators and figure out if you need to register or there’s an exemption that can be had.”
