RESEARCH STRATEGY

For this research, the research team used the white paper titled "The SAFT Project: Toward a Compliant Token Sale Framework" that defines SAFE-T (Simple Agreements For Equity plus Token) as the "Simple Agreement for Future Tokens, or 'SAFT'." To provide five additional SAFT agreements from recent security token offerings, we started our research by finding companies who offered security tokens and looked for their SAFT agreements. Unfortunately, this strategy didn’t provide us with many results, as most of these companies do not disclose their SAFT; most filings related to SAFT that we could find from this strategy were SEC Form D and not quite relevant. We then checked recent security token offerings and ICO, hoping it would guide us into finding the SAFT for those companies. Again, this strategy didn’t provide us with all the results we needed. Next, we performed a focused search on the SEC site, hoping to find the agreements requested. With this approach, we were able to locate some SAFT fillings (e.g., INX). Due to a lack of publicly available information about SAFT for security token offerings, the team was forced to expand the topic to include other tokens, such as utility tokens. With this approach, we were able to locate the remaining companies.
