Bitcoin.com the News reported initial block problems with New Jersey regulators, followed by problems with Texas, Alabama and Vermont. Regulators in all states object to BIA products and disclosures that give authorities grounds to believe they may be unregistered securities.

After four states sent messages to BlockFi, the Kentucky Department of financial institutions (DFI) sent an order to the company, according to the official Blockfi Twitter account.

“On Friday afternoon, we received an order from the Securities Division of the Kentucky Financial Institutions Division in relation to blockfi’s interest account transactions (BIA) in the state of Kentucky,” Blockfi said. Crypto adds message from lender:
