* Acts such as issuance, sale, trading, and operation of tokens are generally regulated as commercial or for-profit activities, and in this case, it may violate the relevant laws and regulations of the Foundation, so you need to be careful in advance.
* If you issue and sell tokens, if the sale of the tokens is incidental to a non-profit business other than the main purpose or activity area of the business (for example, you are running a non-profit educational business, and an incidental donation to it) The act of selling tokens or souvenirs for the purpose of procurement) may have validity, so please discuss this with an expert in advance.

A protector is a person who actually runs and controls the foundation, and also has the authority to appoint and replace council members.
The protector is also disclosed to the Panama registry office, and locals can provide this service under their name. (In the case of using the service under the name, a separate contract for the right to operate is made.)

A beneficiary may be established through a protector or a foundation's by-laws, and the Letter of Wishes and By-Laws may be kept private to protect the beneficiary's privacy.
