The New York Department of Financial Services (DFS) has revised its “greenlist” of approved digital assets, dropping Ripple, Dogecoin, Litecoin, and other coins. The greenlist simplifies the approval process for custodianship and token listing by DFS-licensed firms.

The DFS’s BitLicense program and virtual currency unit have been praised for their balanced approach to cryptocurrency regulation.
