  • Compliance with the law. It is important that the sale of tokens complied with the applicable law. The agreement should also spell out the functionality of the tokens, certain risks and limitations, which will help determine whether securities laws apply to the transaction.

It defines the scope and grounds of the issuer's liability, the procedure for resolving possible conflicts and provides mechanisms for their resolution.
