Certified Stakeholder Relations Network

Vertalo is a cross-chain platform for Security Token issuances that enables broker-dealers, issuers, and their investors to visually manage portfolio data related to communications, compliance, and eligibility with an end goal of real-time liquidity.

How It Works in Three Simple Steps


Step One:

  • Register your project in Vertalo.
  • Perform KYC/AML and accreditation checks on investors.
  • Certify relationships with your advisors, investors, contributors.


Step Two:

  • Issue your compliant security tokens.
  • Adhere to lock-ups and trading restrictions as required in your jurisdictions.
  • Manage stakeholder communication, cap table, audit tracking, and document retention.


Step Three:

  • Notify token holders of distributions, dividends, or other stakeholder communications.
  • Connect and network with stakeholders and peers.
  • Perform and pass diligence for projects and investors.

Why Would Anyone Still Use a SAFT?

In the summer of 2017, as blockchain DApp and Protocol projects rushed to write white papers and harness the power of the ICO (initial coin offering) to raise non-dilutive funding from ‘contributors’, there was a sudden need for documents to support these efforts. With millions of dollars being raised prior to product development or often incorporation, project leaders and their advisors sought methods to short-circuit the expense and time-consuming processes that had preceded the ICO era. Enter the SAFT (Simple Agreement for Future Tokens).
