1.0.0

Contract name

GeneralTransferManager

Type

Transfer Manager Module

Compatible Protocol Version

^3.0.0

How it works

The General Transfer Manager module is for core transfer validation functionality. This module manages the transfer restrictions for the Security Token. By default, the GTM only allows whitelisted addresses to buy or sell the tokens.

Key functionalities (as defined in the Smart Contract)

Initialization

The contract doesn’t need any type of initialization.

Transfer Restriction

The executeTransfer() function try to understand the behavior of the transaction whether it is an issuance txn, redemption or general transaction (normal transfer of tokens) and accordingly it will use TransferRequirement set to validate the transaction.

  • If _from address is the issuance address then transaction type is issuance.

    • TransferRequirement set looks like (fromValidKYC = false, toValidKYC = true, fromRestricted = false, toRestricted = false).

  • If _to address is the zero address then transaction type is redemption.

    • TransferRequirement set looks like (fromValidKYC =true, toValidKYC =false, fromRestricted = false, toRestricted = false).

  • Otherwise, it is general transfer transaction.

    • TransferRequirement set looks like (fromValidKYC =true, toValidKYC =true, fromRestricted =true, toRestricted =true).

TransferRequirement is the set of flags that need to be valid according to the transaction type. This set of flags can be manipulated that leads to change in transaction validation rules (ex- allowing the transfer without verifying whether the sender or receiver is in whitelist or not).

fromValidKYC β†’ Defines if KYC is required for the sender. toValidKYC β†’ Defines if KYC is required for the receiver. fromRestricted β†’ Defines if transfer time restriction is checked for the sender. toRestricted β†’ Defines if transfer time restriction is checked for the receiver.

Note: When the contract is paused, it will not check any of the above conditions. executeTransfer() also facilitates the dynamic whitelisting of the addresses.

/**
* @notice Default implementation of verifyTransfer used by SecurityToken
* If the transfer request comes from the STO, it only checks that the investor is in the whitelist
* If the transfer request comes from a token holder, it checks that:
* a) Both are on the whitelist
* b) Seller's sale lockup period is over
* c) Buyer's purchase lockup is over
* @param _from Address of the sender
* @param _to Address of the receiver
*/

address _from,
address _to,
uint256 /*_amount*/,
bytes calldata _data
) external returns(Result)

VerifyTransfer

It is a stateless function which is used to verify the transaction without changing the storage value.

Below functionality will be released after 3.1.0 release - verifyTransfer() will allow dynamic whitelisting by providing the valid _data parameter. It has the special check which will skip the valid treasury wallet & modules having type 8 can be skipped dynamically.

/**
* @notice Default implementation of verifyTransfer used by SecurityToken
* @param _from Address of the sender
* @param _to Address of the receiver
*/
function verifyTransfer(
address _from,
address _to,
uint256 /*_amount*/,
bytes memory _data
)

returns(Result, bytes32)

Change issuance address

This function is used to change the issuance addresses of your STO.

/**
* @notice Used to change the Issuance Address
* @param _issuanceAddress new address for the issuance
*/
function changeIssuanceAddress(address _issuanceAddress) public withPerm(ADMIN)

Modify KYC data

To add or remove addresses from a whitelist. Every piece of data related to whitelist is stored in the data store of the securityToken.

/**
* @notice Add or remove KYC info of an investor.
* @param _investor is the address to the whitelist
* @param _canSendAfter is the moment when the sale lockup period ends and the investor can freely sell or transfer their tokens
* @param _canReceiveAfter is the moment when the purchase lockup period ends and the investor can freely purchase or receive tokens from others
* @param _expiryTime is the moment till investors KYC will be validated. After that investor need to do re-KYC
*/
function modifyKYCData(
address _investor,
uint64 _canSendAfter,
uint64 _canReceiveAfter,
uint64 _expiryTime
)
public
withPerm(ADMIN)

Modify KYC data of multiple addresses

Add or remove multiple addresses from the whitelist.

/**
* @notice Add or remove KYC info of an investor.
* @param _investors is the address to the whitelist
* @param _canSendAfter is the moment when the sale lockup period ends and the investor can freely sell his tokens
* @param _canReceiveAfter is the moment when the purchase lockup period ends and the investor can freely purchase tokens from others
* @param _expiryTime is the moment till investors KYC will be validated. After that investor need to do re-KYC

Modify KYC data using signed transaction

This function can be called by anyone who has a valid signature and allows that person to add or remove an address from the whitelist.

/**
* @notice Adds or removes addresses from the whitelist - can be called by anyone with a valid signature
* @param _investor is the address to the whitelist
* @param _canSendAfter is the moment when the sale lockup period ends and the investor can freely sell his tokens
* @param _canReceiveAfter is the moment when the purchase lockup period ends and the investor can freely purchase tokens from others
* @param _expiryTime is the moment till investors KYC will be validated. After that investor need to do re-KYC
* @param _validFrom is the time that this signature is valid from
* @param _validTo is the time that this signature is valid until
* @param _nonce nonce of signature (avoid replay attack)
* @param _signature issuer signature
*/

Modify the KYC data using multiple signed data
