This document has been updated to reflect the double-vesting which took place on the date of the first ERC20 token issuance or conversion. We are also taking the opportunity to formally specify requests which have been made during pre-sale telephone discussions, to avoid any ambiguity about our expectations of participants.

1. Conversion of SAITO VIP tokens:

For those who hold mainnet SAITO VIP tokens rather than ERC20 tokens and wish to convert portions for sale on public markets, requests for conversion must be made as previously announced by the Saito Team:

  1. holders wishing to convert tranches of VIP tokens to ERC20 must notify the Saito Team 5 business days prior to the conversion date. These conversion requests should be sent to
  1. holders who do not convert a tranche of VIP tokens on any given conversion date may request to convert that tranche on any future conversion date.
  2. conversion remains at the discretion of the Saito team under the same terms which apply to the purchase of mainnet SAITO VIP tokens.

2. SAITO ERC20 Distribution Schedule and Requirement:

All Buyers who wish to receive SAITO ERC20 tokens must be able to complete KYC requirements, and provide the necessary information needed for fulfillment of the request, including the provision of an ETH address to which the SAITO ERC20 tokens can be sent. Buyers must also be in good standing with any inquiries made to confirm compliance with their contract, these Terms and Conditions, or other requests from the project.

Distribution of SAITO ERC20 tokens remains as follows:

  1. The first tranche of SAITO ERC20 as specified in their purchase agreement may be transferred to the Buyer on the same date that the SAITO sold pursuant to the public sale are transferred to the public sale purchasers (the First Distribution Date).
  2. On the expiry of each consecutive period of 3 calendar months after the First Distribution Date in total 4 periods, a further amount, equal to one quarter of the total after subtraction of first trance, of the purchased SAITO may be distributed to the Buyer if the amount was not already previously distributed, until such time that 100% of the SAITO purchased pursuant to this Agreement has been distributed to the Buyer.
  3. If amounts in excess of the above percentages are transferred to any Buyer in advance, Buyers are expected to hold their excess of issued tokens off-market until such date as they would naturally be available for sale under the terms of clauses (a) and (b) above. The team may request proof-of-holding as evidence of compliance with sale terms and conditions.
  4. If any amounts in excess of the above percentages are transferred to Buyers in advance of the dates at which they would otherwise be potentially made available, the Saito Project may request that these amounts are transferred back to an address provided by the project at any time. The team may also request proof-of-holding as evidence of compliance with sale terms and conditions.

3. OTC Support and Token Sales

The project and its supporters have an interest in the market finding a price for SAITO which assists the network in planning economic policy and leads to growing public excitement and interest in the foundational economic advances made by the project. Given that Buyers may be in control of significant amounts of SAITO, we require that:

  1. Buyers selling on open markets make best efforts to avoid single sales that result in a greater than 1% change in the price of SAITO on that market.
  2. Buyers holding large amounts of ERC20 SAITO Over USDT 25,000 equivalent are required to notify the project and our OTC desk a minimum of two working days before liquidating on public markets. Notification of intent to sell implies acceptance of matching purchase offers made at prevailing market rates at time of notification.
  3. Buyers who are buying or selling significant amounts of SAITO through an OTC desk or Market Maker other than that provided by the project inform the project of which Market Market or OTC desk and authorize us to query them about the state of sales efforts if requested so as to provide reasonable transparency about the state of current and pending sales or purchases and assist providing visibility into overarching market conditions.

4. SAITO Promotion and Marketing Support

Buyers are expected to make efforts to promote SAITO as a condition of participation such that any downwards sales pressure is offset by heightened awareness of SAITO within their communities, areas of influence, and within the blockchain space generally. Outreach activities include but are not limited to providing exchange support, assisting with marketing and project execution, on-boarding enterprise customers, or assisting with arranging conference appearances or other public-facing activities.

Our expectations for the degree of outreach and token-promotion support are correlated with the amount of SAITO requested for conversion or to be vested and the relative stake of participants in the overall network. To ensure that these outreach efforts are visible to our team and so that we can amplify the effectiveness of third-party promotional efforts, we require:

  1. participants conducting outreach should notify us of significant activities by emailing in advance of those activities taking place. We recommend also notifying our core team so we can amplify your marketing efforts.
  2. participants doing marketing activities on Twitter or other social networks should please tag the SaitoOfficial account in any Tweets or link to us so that we will be aware of the discussion and able to amplify it.
  3. should we reach out to your team, please get back to us with thoughts on planned promotional and support activities within a few days so that we can effectively schedule our marketing activities to have continual public presence.

5. Non-Performance and Non-Remediation

Should participants fail to perform their obligations under these Terms and Conditions in a way that harms the network or project, and should issues be pointed out to them by the Company or project and should they fail to remedy or rectify those problems, the Company may require the return in full or part of any tokens issued in the tranche immediately preceding that in which they have failed to perform their obligations.

6. Notices and Other Communications

6.1 You consent to being given any notices and other communications in connection with your commitment as a purchaser and any SAITO in the form of an electronic record or by electronic means pursuant the applicable electronic communication law. Unless expressly stated otherwise, any notices or other communications required or permitted to be given or made to you under the Pre-Sale Commitment Letter and these Terms and Conditions shall be in writing and shall be sufficiently served on you if such notice or other communication is sent by us to your email address specified in the Pre-Sale Commitment Letter.

7. Dispute Resolution


7.1 Generally

Arbitration is less formal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for more limited discovery than in court, and can be subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. This agreement to arbitrate disputes includes all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the Pre-Sale Commitment Letter and these Terms and Conditions, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether a claim arises during or after the termination of the Pre-Sale Commitment Letter and these Terms and Conditions.
