Legal and Regulatory Implications
General information about regulatory implications and creating a legal entity for your Venture Club.
The following information is for informative purposes only. It does not constitute financial, legal, tax, or other advice. We advise that you consult your legal and tax advisors to make the best decisions for your unique circumstances.
Whether you need to have a legal entity for your Venture Club is ultimately determined by you. We recommend all users of our platform to consult their own tax and legal counsel for their particular situation.
Unique Venture Clubs is a non-custodial platform - you do not need to have a legal entity if you open a club for the purpose of trading digital assets on the secondary market. However, choosing to create a legal entity for your Venture Club has its benefits; it can enable a wider range of investments (i.e. startup equity, venture capital, etc.), help limit legal and financial liability for club members, be beneficial for filing taxes and allow off-chain activity like opening up bank accounts, using service providers, etc.
At this stage, clubs are limited to 99 members and $25m in treasury value. In the near future, Unique Venture Clubs is planning to offer legal wrapper support to those who want it.
