TF App AND IYO related: Owner: Michael

This week: Plot out needed IYO changes: there is a skeleton structure for companies (type of IYO organization) somewhere, but it's outdated. Developers feel like they are playing catch up constantly, meaning we should plan this issue carefully.

At it's most basic level, companies should have some structured fields to assign legal identifying information, much like people in IYO. Companies have members that have different priviliges, such as being able to enter company legal identifying information and to assign people (legally) defined roles. Roles can or should grant automatic privileges.

Implications for TF app: Multi-user wallets. This is big and may not be solvable. Also, it doesn't make sense right to devote time to do this right now. Rather, we need to get ready for a block-chain future, and multi-user, multi-sig wallets.

Proposed solution: Just have companies sign convertibles, we keep track of their tokens for them. Meanwhile, we need to get ready for the block-chain future.

Company onboarding:

  • No website on-boarding -> web version for companies only?
  • No on-boarding for companies through IYO
  • iTFT purchasing agreement for companies (convertible loan agreement would work)


  • TF stichting does not exist -> deadline: end of October?
  • No clear guidance from Orrick -> 3 countries (US, UK, Belgium) investigated for now
  • KYC process integration -> investigate until thursday this week
  • TF Dubai to be merged into stichting (once it exists)
  • Answer “Are you phishing?” comments by externals (talk to Baker for details, raising the good point “Let’s only ask for details when people have decided to buy”)
  • Legacy ‘Investments’ based on old agreements need to be sorted in order for us to be able to asign iTFTs to the individual wallets
