Raise funds globally

Crypto projects are global by nature, meaning founders need to manage investor and client expectations whilst drafting and signing documents, setting up entities, and preparing for due diligence. With Legal Nodes, Web3 founders can finally bring their global fundraising projects to life in one single place.

It has been a great experience with Legal Nodes so far. We have received support with documents for early-stage fundraising (SAFE & Token Warrant) and guidance on the jurisdiction for Token SPV registration.

Frequently asked questions

Can you help me with preparing a Token Warrant / SAFT / SAFE / Token Sale Agreement?

Yes, Legal Nodes has created model documents for each of these fundraising instruments based on our experience of working with 200+ founders in the crypto space and partnering with organizations like the Interchain Builders Program. We can tailor our document templates to your specific blockchain and project needs within our Plans. Check out our Plans in more detail here.

Which document is best for fundraising with tokens?

There are several fundraising documents that are used for fundraising with tokens: Token Side Letter, Token Warrants, SAFTs, and Token Sale Agreements. The deciding factor of which is the best document depends on whether the tokenomics of the project are finalized, whether the Token SPV company is registered, whether the tokens have already been issued, and a few other things. A simplified answer is that for early-stage fundraising with no finalized tokenomics and Token SPV, most often a combination of SAFE + Token Warrant or a Token Side Letter is used. For later stages of fundraising with finalized tokenomics, but without issued tokens, founders often use SAFTs. When the tokens are already issued, new fundraising rounds are often structured with Token Sale Agreements or other specific instruments.

How can I structure the fundraising in a way that I’ll be able to launch a DAO in the future?

One of the most common ways to structure a company that will eventually become a DAO and will be able to raise funds in fiat and tokens along the way is through using a so-called triple structure: a Dev Lab company, a Product and Token distribution company (a Token SPV), and a DAO company. You can read more about these structures here.

What countries are you working in for incorporating companies for fundraising?

We have legal partners in more than 20 crypto-friendly countries across the globe. The most popular countries for Web3 fundraising on our platform are Switzerland, Singapore, Liechtenstein, the Cayman Islands, the British Virgin Islands, and Panama. If you don’t see the country you’re interested in, contact us via the form or message in the website chat, we’re friendly :)

How much will it cost me to do the necessary legal work for the fundraising?

The final cost estimate depends a lot on the chosen jurisdiction for the fundraising and any other legal works that will be required (e.g. obtaining Token Legal Opinion, regulatory approval, and preparing documents for the investor KYC/AML check).


Usually, the price estimate for the chosen jurisdiction and structure can be prepared after the second Legal Discovery Session within a Legal Nodes Plan. You can also see price ranges for different legal works on our
pricing page in the add-ons section.
