For an SEC Compliant Securities Token Offering ("STO"), the best method is to use Reg A+

A key challenge when using Reg A+ for an STO is that in most cases, the tokens have not yet been developed, so accepting payments from investors to buy the tokens directly is impossible because they cannot be delivered. Imagine selling stock in a company when you don't have any shares to sell - rather challenging!

These are the methods that we recommend STO CEO's consider for this situation:

1) Sell warrants that convert into the Tokens when they are ready. Full liquidity of the token owner's results, once issued, courtesy of the Reg A+. It is possible to provide discounts to early investors but once the price has increased by 20%, the next increase may require a more lengthy SEC review (all price changes require SEC review, but small adjustments are likely to be Qualified quickly).

2) Raise capital via a convertible note that feeds into a Reg D. When the tokens are ready, convert the note holders to token owners. Having started a Reg A+ earlier because of its longer lead time, when it is Qualified by the SEC (and the tokens have been issued via the Reg D), raise even more capital via sale of previously reserved tokens via the Reg A+. The Reg A+ investors will be able to sell their tokens to people of any wealth level immediately after the Reg A+. This approach allows you to raise more than the annual $50 Million USD limit in Reg A+, and early investors via the convertible note can easily be given deep discounts to reward them for taking more risk.

3) Raise capital into a special form of convertible note, tied to a Reg A+ that takes place when the tokens are available and after SEC Qualification of the Reg A+. Early investors via the convertible note can be given deep discounts to reward them for taking more risk. This is limited to the $50 mill Reg A+ annual cap. Excellent liquidity.
