Great checklist! Thank you.

It is still not clear if the SAFT is the right instrument since according to the recent announcements your token will be considered a security till you can prove that it can be used efficiently to purchase or complete a utility service. That might be the reason why the link to the SAFT article you are highlighting and which is referring to the Coinlist SAFT is now pointing to a 404 error page https://coinlist.co/about/help/saft/0

I am not even sure that the current SAFTE which stand for Simple Agreement for Future Token or Equity are even appropriate these days. I was recommended from a legal counsel to keep fund raising using a SAFE since at least that instrument was commonly used or to use a SAFT only if there was 100% certainty that the token could be used. That being said I think it is just a question of months before we see a standard SAFT becoming common practice.

Have you already used such instrument (SAFT or SAFTE) Greylock Partners for some of the project you are involved in? Thank you for your reply.
