An investment contract implies that the transaction is a type of security. In the context of blockchain tokens, the Howey test can be expressed as three independent elements. 1. An investment of money 2. in a common enterprise 3. with an expectation of profits predominantly from the efforts of others. All three elements must be met in order for a token to be a security. The third element encompasses both the third and fourth prongs of the traditional Howey test.
