Investment docs:
Investor accreditation form, KYC/AML forms
Some countries where SAFT investors are located may have regulatory requirements of investor accreditation in place. In these cases, investors must satisfy these requirements when investing into a project via a SAFT. Also, considering that most SAFT investments are in crypto, every Web3 startup is obligated to perform KYC checks on every investor and check investors’ crypto for money laundering risks. These KYC/AML and accreditation forms for investors should be prepared in accordance with the local regulations of the countries of both the TokenCo registration and the investors’ residency.
Additional comments:

The process of investors' accreditation verification and KYC/AML checks are also required.
