Know Your Token Holders
Know who your token holders are at all times and maintain a whitelist of investor addresses. From re-running sanctions checks to requiring accredited investors only, the simple restricted token standard helps token issuers manage their compliance requirements.

Enforce complex transfer restrictions. Such as:
- A preventative poison pill provision, to restrict the maximum ownership of a single individual or entity.
- The ability to prevent token holders in a single jurisdiction to trade with token holders in another jurisdiction.
- The ability for the issuer to revoke a token if necessary.
