RoundOF is currently owned by the operator Achim Wagenknecht. He undertakes not to sell the project, but to transfer the ownership of RoundOF to the community at fair conditions in case of success. This promise is backed up by a considerable contractual penalty: if he should nevertheless sell RoundOF, he will pay each individual member compensation of 1,000 euros.
When RoundOF generates enough profit to establish a formal company, a cooperative will be formed (german eingetragene Genossenschaft). In this way the RoundOF community as a legal entity will take control of RoundOF.
