White Paper Writting for Crypto Utility Tokens

Did the regulated crypto exchange request you to provide a legal opinion to verify that the token has undergone comprehensive legal analysis before listing on the exchange?

Are you looking for a legal opinion required under MiCA?

Based on the information provided about the project, token sale, and features of your token (tokenomics), we will be able to provide a preliminary opinion on whether the token qualifies as a security token, utility token, e-money or (un)regulated financial instrument.

Why do you need a white paper for crypto utility token?

Legal opinion is required in order for you to be able to list a utility token at any centralized cryptocurrency exchange. The competent authorities might also request legal opinion within the process of obtaining required crypto licenses.


 Token issuers operating in the European Union (e.g. targeting EU investors) will be required to provide a legal opinion under the MiCA ("Markets in Crypto Assets Regulation"), the future European Union systemic crypto regulation. 

What do we do?


We analyze the token from the tokenomics perspective and look over all relevant documentation (white paper, terms of sale, SAFTs, marketing materials, etc.) and anything else that might impact the legal classification of the token.



Suppose we notice potential challenges for the token to qualify as a utility token. In that case, we offer legal advice relating to the proper design of tokenomics and the drafting of the relevant documents. 


After the analysis, we draft a comprehensive legal opinion on the utility token, including a token classification by applicable European Union laws.
