This Simple Agreement for Future Tokens (“SAFT”) defines the requirements (the “Requirements”) by which you may acquire tokens in the project (“Tokens”).
Please read the Requirements carefully before going further with this project.
THIS OFFERING HAS NOT BEEN REGISTERED OR QUALIFIED UNDER THE SECURITIES LAWS OF ANY JURISDICTION ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD. IT IS BEING OFFERED AND SOLD ONLY IN JURISDICTIONS WHERE SUCH REGISTRATION OR QUALIFICATION IS NOT REQUIRED, INCLUDING PURSUANT TO APPLICABLE EXEMPTIONS THAT GENERALLY LIMIT THE BUYERS WHO ARE ELIGIBLE TO PURCHASE A SAFT AND THAT RESTRICT ITS RESALE. THE SAFT MAY NOT BE OFFERED, SOLD, OR OTHERWISE TRANSFERRED, PLEDGED, OR HYPOTHECATED EXCEPT AS PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE SECURITIES LAWS. FURTHER, THE ENTITY HAS NOT TAKEN ANY ACTION TO OBTAIN ANY MONEY SERVICES BUSINESS, MONEY TRANSMITTER, OR VIRTUAL CURRENCY BUSINESS LICENSES OR REGISTRATIONS IN ANY JURISDICTION. ENTITY DOES NOT INTEND TO OPERATE IN ANY JURISDICTIONS THAT REQUIRE SUCH LICENSES OR REGISTRATION, AND THE ENTITY IS ONLY ISSUING SAFTS AND WILL ISSUE THE TOKEN IN THE FUTURE IN JURISDICTIONS WHERE SUCH LICENSES OR REGISTRATIONS ARE NOT REQUIRED.
IF THE BUYER IS A RESIDENT OF A JURISDICTION THAT REQUIRES SUCH LICENSING OR REGISTRATION, THE ENTITY WILL NOT ALLOW THE BUYER TO PURCHASE THE SAFT OR RECEIVE A FUTURE TOKEN. FOR EXAMPLE, GIVEN THE NEW YORK’S ‘BITLICENSE’ REGULATIONS, THE ENTITY IS NOT OFFERING SAFT OR WILL NOT ISSUE FUTURE TOKENS TO NEW YORK RESIDENTS.
THIS CERTIFIES THAT in exchange for the contributions by the buyer, Members of MECI Group International – arranged under the law of Switzerland (the ‘Entity’) – hereby grants to the buyer the possibility of a right to certain units of Tokens that the Entity may issue in future (the ‘Token’), subject to the terms set forth below), if and when issued.
The ‘Discount Rate’ will be offered at different amounts during the course of the project.
The Entity has not yet prepared the Token Terms and Conditions (TT&C), which will set forth the general description and restriction of the Token. The Entity has not yet published the whitepaper that will describe the general feature of the Project and the Token Sale Event, (‘TSE’ & ‘Whitepaper’). The Buyer understands and agrees that the Tokens when issued, will be subject to Whitepaper and the Token Terms and Conditions. The buyer further understands and agrees that the Whitepaper and the Token T&C may include (i) rights of the Token holders, (ii) features of the Token, and (iii) obligations of the Entity, that may be materially different from what the buyer understands as of the date of these Requirements. The buyer agrees that they are buying Tokens based on such understanding.
Prior to purchasing a Token, a prospective buyer should consult with its own legal, financial, tax, accounting, and other advisors regarding the applicable limitations on buyers who are eligible to purchase it and that restrict its resale or other transfer; the income and other tax consequences of acquiring, holding and disposing of the Token; and the other potential consequences of acquiring a Token. Buyers should carefully consider whether purchasing Tokens is suitable for their financial situation and goals. The Entity assumes that the contributor has taken all necessary consultations to ensure their compliance with regulations applicable to them, and shall not take any responsibility should the contributor have done otherwise
None of the Entity, the management of the Entity, the employees of the Entity, the advisors to the Entity, and any other person has been authorized to make any statement concerning the project or the sale of Tokens discussed herein other than as set forth in these Requirements; and any such statements, if made, must not be relied upon. Buyers should make their own investigations and evaluations of the project, including the merits and risks of a purchasing thereof. Prior to any purchase, buyers have the opportunity to ask questions of and receive answers and additional information from Members of MECI Group International (the ‘Entity’) concerning the terms and conditions of the Offering and other relevant matters.
SAFT purchase amounts are denominated in Euros and buyers may tender Euros, Bitcoin, or other accepted cryptocurrencies in exchange for the Tokens. Such currencies are subject to fluctuation in the rate of exchange and, in the case of digital assets, the exchange valuations. Such fluctuations may have an adverse effect on the price or value of Tokens.
(a) Network Launch. In the event of a Network Launch, the Entity may issue to the buyer a number of units of the Token equal to the Purchase Amount divided by the Discount Price. In connection with and prior to the issuance of Tokens by the Entity to the buyer pursuant to this Section 1(a):
I. The buyer will execute and deliver to the Entity any and all other transaction documents related to these requirements; and
II. The buyer will provide to the Entity a network address for which to allocate the buyer’s Tokens.
(b) Dissolution Event. If there is a Dissolution Event before this instrument expires or terminates, the buyer’s purchase becomes void and unrecoverable.
