(ix) the resale or exchange or attempted resale or exchange of Tokens for any fiat currency, cryptocurrency or cryptographic token;
(x) the Platform failing to be suitable for the special or particular purpose You intend, or the failure of any images or audio contained or related to the Website or Platform;
(xi) the Platform being infected with any malicious code or viruses;
(xii) any action stemming from, occurring due to, or otherwise related to a breach of Clause 5 above;
(xiii) the actions or omissions of any third party payment processing entity or platform that You use to purchase Tokens, or Your inability or ability to use such platform or services; and

8.3 For the avoidance of doubt, this limitation of liability provision shall apply, with full force and effect, in perpetuity for the benefit of the NODEFI Group and each other Relevant Party, and any other entity that is or becomes the owner of the NODEFI Group or the Platform, whether such ownership occurs through a sale, merger, other transaction or by the operation of Applicable Law.
8.4 If Applicable Law does not permit all or any part of the above limitation of liability in contracts to apply to You, the limitations, exclusions and disclaimers will apply to You only to the extent permitted by Applicable Law.
CLAUSE 9. INDEMNITY
9.1 You do hereby to the fullest extent permitted by Applicable Law indemnify, defend and hold the Company and each other Relevant Party harmless from and against any and all loss, penalty, claim, damage, liability or expense whatsoever (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and disbursements) due to or arising out of or based upon (i) any inaccurate representation or warranty made by You, or breach or failure by You to comply with any covenant or agreement made by You in these T&Cs or in any other document furnished by You to any of the foregoing in connection with this transaction, or (ii) any action instituted by or on behalf of You against the Company or any other Relevant Party that is finally resolved by judgment against You or in favor of the Company or any other Relevant Party. The remedies provided in this Clause 9 shall be cumulative and shall not preclude the assertion by the Company or any other Relevant Party of any other rights or the seeking of any other remedies against You. This indemnification shall survive any disposition of Your Tokens.
CLAUSE 10. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS
10.1 Subject to Clause 10.2, You acknowledge as between You and the NODEFI Group that the NODEFI Group has valid, unrestricted and exclusive ownership of all rights, title and interest to use the patents, trademarks, trademark registrations, trade names, copyrights, know-how, technology and other intellectual property rights to and subsisting in the Platform, Tokens and the Website.

CLAUSE 13. MISCELLANEOUS
13.1 Third Party Rights. You hereby acknowledge and agree that each Relevant Party is an intended third-party beneficiary under these T&Cs (and the Company shall hold the benefit of such provisions on trust for each such Relevant Party). However, the parties to these T&Cs may rescind or vary these T&Cs (including, without limitation, any variation so as to extinguish or alter a third party's entitlement to enforce any provisions of these T&Cs) without the consent of any such third party.
13.2 Security. You must at all times remain the only person who has control over Your private key, digital wallet and any other device associated with the purchase of Tokens and any username, passwords or other login or identifying credentials used by You with respect to the Platform and the Tokens. You must implement reasonable and appropriate measures designed to secure access to any private key, digital wallet or any other device associated with the purchase of Tokens or the use of the Platform. If You transfer any such private key, digital wallet or any other device associated with the purchase of Tokens or the use of the Platform to any third party, You do so at Your own risk and the NODEFI Group shall not be held responsible for any loss You may suffer as a result of third parties accessing Your private key, digital wallet or any other device associated with the purchase of Tokens or the use of the Platform. In the event that You are no longer in possession and control of any private key, digital wallet or any other device associated with the purchase of Tokens, the use of the Platform and/or if You are unable to provide login or identifying credentials to the NODEFI Group and/or if the private key file or password respectively become lost or stolen, You may lose all of Your Tokens, access to the use of the Platform and/or the access to Your digital wallet. For the avoidance of doubt, the NODEFI Group is under no obligation to recover or replace any such lost or stolen Tokens or the access to the use of the Platform and You understand and agree that, subject to the provisions of these T&Cs, all Token purchases are non-refundable and therefore You shall not receive any amount of currency or other compensation for any Tokens purchased and/or lost for whatever reason. Failure to use the Platform correctly and/or to follow the NODEFI Group’s procedures as may be made available from time to time may result in You not receiving any Tokens, losing access to the use of the Platform or losing some or all of the amounts paid in exchange for Tokens, regardless of the purchase date.
13.3 Suspension. Notwithstanding anything contained herein, the NODEFI Group reserves the right, without notice and in its sole and absolute discretion, to suspend Your right to access the Platform, and all related information and files without liability to You, at its sole and absolute discretion, including but not limited to, in case of Your breach of these T&Cs or if the NODEFI Group believes You have committed fraud or other misconduct or are a Prohibited Person. Upon any such suspension all rights and licenses granted to You under these T&Cs will immediately terminate. In the event of any Force Majeure Event, breach of these T&Cs, or any other event that would make the operation or provision of the Platform or related services commercially unreasonable for the NODEFI Group, the NODEFI Group may, in its discretion and without liability to You, with or without prior notice, suspend Your access to all or a portion of the Platform. To the extent permitted under Applicable Law (including in the event of applicable legislation change or amendment), in the event the NODEFI Group revokes Your right to use or access the Platform the NODEFI Group shall not be required to provide You with any refund whatsoever.
13.4 Entire Agreement. Unless otherwise provided, these T&Cs are intended to fully reflect the terms of the agreement between the Parties, and shall supersede any previously or contemporaneously agreed upon terms or understanding. No provision of these T&Cs shall be considered waived unless such waiver is in writing and signed by the Party that benefits from the enforcement of such provision. No waiver of any provision in these T&Cs, however, will be deemed a waiver of a subsequent breach of such provision or a waiver of a similar provision. In addition, a waiver of any breach or a failure to enforce any term or condition of these T&Cs will not in any way affect, limit, or waive a Party’s rights hereunder at any time to enforce strict compliance thereafter with every term and condition hereof.
13.5 Assignment. The Company may, at its sole and absolute discretion, assign any of its rights and/or delegate its duties under these T&Cs (including, but not limited to any and all intellectual property rights in or to all technology, software, and code relating to the Platform). You may not assign Your rights or delegate Your duties as a user of the Platform, or as a purchaser of Tokens, and any assignment or delegation without the written consent of the Company, which the Company may withhold at its sole and absolute discretion, shall be null and void.
13.6 Severability. In the event any one or more of the provisions of these T&Cs are for any reason held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any jurisdiction, in whole or in part or in any respect, or in the event that any one or more of the provisions of these T&Cs operate or would prospectively operate to invalidate these T&Cs in any jurisdiction, then and in any such event, such provision(s) shall be deemed modified to the minimum extent necessary so that such provision, as so modified, shall no longer be held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable. Any such modification, invalidity or unenforceability shall be strictly limited both to such provision and to such jurisdiction, and in each case to no other. Furthermore, in the event of any such modification, invalidity or unenforceability, these T&Cs shall be interpreted so as to achieve the intent expressed herein to the greatest extent possible in the jurisdiction in question and otherwise as set forth herein.
13.7 Electronic Notices and Use of Information. You (i) agree and consent to receive electronically all communications, agreements, documents, receipts, notices and disclosures (hereinafter - the “Communications”) that the NODEFI Group provides in connection with Your use of the Platform; and (ii) have read and fully understood the Company’s Privacy Notice annexed at Schedule 3 to these T&Cs. The NODEFI Group and each of its Affiliates and their respective service providers may further disclose Your information to any of their respective service providers, agents, relevant custodians or similar third parties for any reason and such Persons may keep Your information for any period of time permitted by Applicable Law. You do hereby consent to such Persons disclosing any of Your information which they hold to any Governmental Authority or prosecuting authority for any reason and without notice to You. You hereby acknowledge and agree to hold the NODEFI Group and each such Affiliate harmless in respect of any disclosure of information by such Persons in accordance with these T&Cs. For the avoidance of any doubt, the NODEFI Group and each such Affiliate shall not be liable to You or any other Person for any loss, damage or expense incurred directly or indirectly as a result of such disclosure.
13.8 Information Requests. The NODEFI Group may determine, from time to time and in its sole and absolute discretion, that it is necessary to obtain certain information about You and Your Affiliates in order to comply with Applicable Laws in connection with Your entry into these T&Cs and Your subsequent holding of Tokens. You agree to provide the NODEFI Group with such information promptly upon request, and You acknowledge and accept that the Company may refuse to accept Your application until You provide such requested information and the Company has determined that it is permissible for the Company to accept Your application and receive the purchase amount from You under Applicable Law. The NODEFI Group further reserves the right to request identification documentation from You and Your Affiliates at any time. In the event that You or any such Affiliate does not provide such requested information to the satisfaction of the Company (in its sole and absolute discretion) the Company shall not be bound by the provisions of these T&Cs and shall be entitled to specifically refuse any presentation of Tokens by You to the NODEFI Group or any other Relevant Party. In the event that You, directly or indirectly, sell, assign, transfers, convey or otherwise dispose of any Tokens You do hereby covenant with the NODEFI Group to procure that any such acquirer of Tokens shall be under equivalent obligations to provide such information to the NODEFI Group at the request of the NODEFI Group from time to time.
13.9 Tax Issues. The NODEFI Group makes no representations concerning the tax implications of the sale of Tokens or the possession or use of them. You bear the sole and absolute responsibility to determine if the purchase of Tokens with fiat currency or cryptocurrency or the potential appreciation or depreciation in the value of Tokens over time has tax implications for You in Your home jurisdiction or any other jurisdiction. By purchasing Tokens, and to the extent permitted by Applicable Law, You agree to be solely responsible for any applicable taxes imposed on, and agree not to hold the NODEFI Group or any of its Affiliates liable for any tax liability associated with or arising from Your purchase, possession, or transfer of Tokens. All fees and charges payable by You to the Company are exclusive of any taxes, and shall certain taxes be applicable, they shall be added on top of the payable amounts. Upon the Company’s request, You will provide it any information it reasonably requests to determine whether it is obligated to collect any withholding taxes or value added or similar taxes from You, including any applicable tax identification numbers. If any deduction or withholding is required by Applicable Law, You will notify the Company and will pay the Company any additional amounts necessary to ensure that the net amount that the Company receives, after any deduction and withholding, equals the amount the Company would have received if no deduction or withholding had been required. Additionally, You will provide the Company with documentation showing that the withheld and deducted amounts have been paid to the relevant taxing authority. To the extent the Company is responsible for remitting any withholding taxes or value added or similar taxes, Your allocation of Tokens shall be reduced to the extent such taxes are required to be remitted by the Company. The NODEFI Group wishes to make You aware that future use of the Tokens by You when transacting with the NODEFI Group may result in withholding taxes, value added tax and/or similar taxes being imposed. You will be responsible for such taxes, however, where the Company is responsible for remitting taxes, the amount of taxes shall be deducted from the fees otherwise due and payable by You in connection with Your transactions with the Company.
13.10 Force Majeure Events. The NODEFI Group shall not be liable for (1) any inaccuracy, error, delay in, or omission of (a) any information, or (b) the transmission or delivery of information; (2) any loss or damage arising from any event beyond the NODEFI Group’s reasonable control, including but not limited to flood, extraordinary weather conditions, earthquake, or other act of God, fire, war, insurrection, riot, labor dispute, accident, action of Governmental Authorities, communications, power failure, or equipment or software malfunction or any other cause beyond the NODEFI Group’s reasonable control (each, a “Force Majeure Event”).
13.11 Compliance Policies. The NODEFI Group and its Affiliates strictly follow applicable anti-money laundering (AML), “know your customer” (KYC) and other Applicable Laws in the British Virgin Islands. You fully agree to assist the NODEFI Group in fulfilling the obligations of any Applicable Law and to provide any necessary information that is required from You to the NODEFI Group or any relevant Governmental Authority.
13.12 Further Assistance. You shall cooperate with and assist the NODEFI Group and its Affiliates in connection with any investigation, examination or enquiry by any Governmental Authority. You shall promptly provide the NODEFI Group and its Affiliates with any documents, certification, record or other materials they may request in connection with such investigation, examination or enquiry.
13.13 Headings. Headings are for convenience only and shall not be used to limit or construe any provisions of these T&Cs.

RISK DISCLOSURES: CERTAIN RISK FACTORS
The precise terms of the privileges and other benefits of the Tokens will be determined by the NODEFI Group in its sole and absolute discretion from time to time. Such privileges and benefits may be amended thereafter by the NODEFI Group at any time and without notice to, or consent from, any holder of Tokens, or the Company, in the sole and absolute discretion of the NODEFI Group. Any such determination or amendment shall not be a breach of the terms of the Tokens.
While the Tokens are available only to purchasers that are not Prohibited Persons (which therefore excludes sales to U.S. Persons) there is the possibility that Tokens could be acquired over time or following changes in the regulatory landscape by U.S. Persons and/or persons in other jurisdictions currently restricted from acquiring Tokens and, accordingly, the risk factors set out below may include certain risk factors specific to certain jurisdictions even though the Company will not at present make the Tokens available at this time to persons from such jurisdictions.
BY PARTICIPATING IN ANY ACQUISITION OF TOKENS, YOU EXPRESSLY ACKNOWLEDGE AND ASSUME ALL RISKS RELATED THERETO INCLUDING (WITHOUT LIMITATION) THE RISKS SET OUT BELOW.
a. Risk of Losing Access to Tokens Due to Wallet Incompatibility: Your cryptocurrency wallet must possess technical infrastructure that is compatible with the receipt, storage and transfer of the Tokens. Non-compatible wallet addresses will not be accepted. In addition, Your wallet address must not be associated with a third party exchange or service that has custody over the private key. You must own the private key if Your address is an exchange address. The Company reserves the right to prescribe additional conditions relating to specific wallet requirements at any time, acting in its sole discretion.
b. Risks Associated with the Blockchain Protocols: Any malfunction, breakdown, abandonment, unintended function, unexpected functioning of or attack on the protocol upon which the Tokens are issued may have an adverse effect on the Tokens, including causing them to malfunction or function in an unexpected or unintended manner.
c. Risks Associated with Your Credentials: Any third party that gains access to or learns of Your wallet login credentials or private keys may be able to dispose of Your Tokens. To minimize this risk, You should guard against unauthorized access to Your electronic devices. Best practices dictate that You safely store private keys in one or more backup locations geographically separated from the working location. In addition, You are responsible for giving us the correct wallet address to which to send Your Tokens. If You give us the incorrect address to which to send Your Tokens, we are not responsible for any loss of Tokens that may occur.
d. Risk of Unfavorable Regulatory Action in One or More Jurisdictions:
i. Blockchain technologies and cryptographic tokens have been the subject of scrutiny by various regulatory bodies around the world. Blockchain technology allows new forms of interaction and it is possible that certain jurisdictions will apply existing regulations on, or introduce new regulations addressing, blockchain technology based applications, which regulations may be contrary to the current setup of the Platform or its smart contract system and, therefore, may result in substantial modifications to the Platform and such smart contract systems, including its termination and the loss of Tokens.
ii. The regulatory status of cryptographic tokens and distributed ledger technology is unclear or unsettled in many jurisdictions. It is difficult to predict how or whether regulatory authorities may apply existing regulation with respect to such technology and its applications, including specifically (but without limitation to) the Platform and Tokens. It is likewise difficult to predict how or whether any legislative or regulatory authorities may implement changes to law and regulation affecting distributed ledger technology and its applications, including specifically (but without limitation to) the Platform and Tokens. Regulatory actions could negatively impact the Platform and Tokens in various ways, including, for purposes of illustration only, through a determination that Tokens are a regulated financial instrument that requires registration, licensing or restriction. The Company may cease operations in a jurisdiction if regulatory actions, or changes to law or regulation, make it illegal to operate in such jurisdiction, or commercially undesirable to obtain the necessary regulatory approval(s) to operate in such jurisdiction. The functioning of the Platform and the Tokens could be impacted by any regulatory inquiries or actions, including restrictions on the use, sale or possession of digital tokens like the Tokens, which restrictions could impede, limit or end the development of the Platform and increase legal costs.
iii. The cryptocurrency exchange market, the token listing and trading market, initial coin offerings, and by extension the Platform, is subject to a variety of federal, state and international laws and regulations, including those with respect to “know you customer” and “anti-money laundering” and customer due diligence procedures, privacy and data protection, consumer protection, data security, and others. These laws and regulations, and the interpretation or application of these laws and regulations, could change. In addition, new laws or regulations affecting the Platform could be enacted, which could impact the utility of the Tokens in the Platform. Additionally, users of the Platform are subject to or may be adversely affected by industry specific laws and regulations or licensing requirements. If any of these parties fails to comply with any of these licensing requirements or other applicable laws or regulations, or if such laws and regulations or licensing requirements become more stringent or are otherwise expanded, it could adversely impact the Platform and the Tokens, including the utility of Tokens with respect to the Platform.
iv. The Company may need to obtain approvals from one or more Governmental Authorities and there is a risk that securing such approvals may delay or prevent the Token generation event, the development of the Platform and/or the Company’s ability to issue the Tokens.
e. Risk of Alternative, Unofficial Platforms: Following the issue of the Tokens and the continued development of the Platform, it is possible that alternative applications or platforms could be established, which use the same or similar open source code and protocol underlying the Platform. The Tokens may have no intrinsic value with respect to such alternative applications. The Platform may compete with these alternative, unofficial token-based applications, which could potentially negatively impact the Platform and the Tokens.
f. Token Generation Risk and Risk of Insufficient Interest in the Platform: There are no guarantees as to the timing of the Tokens being generated or the release of the Platform, each of which is dependent on many factors, including many outside the Company’s control. The Platform may not be owned, operated or controlled by the Company. Further, it is possible that the Platform will not be used by a large number of businesses, individuals, and other organizations and that there will be limited public interest in the Platform. Such a lack of interest could negatively impact the Tokens and the Platform.
g. Operating History: The Company has no operating history and will be operating in an evolving industry that may not develop as expected. Assessing the business and future prospects of the Company is challenging in light of the risks and difficulties the Company may encounter. These risks and difficulties include, but are not limited to, the Company’s ability to:
- navigate complex and evolving regulatory and competitive environments;
- obtain the requisite regulatory and other licenses in the relevant jurisdictions;
- obtain and retain customers;
- successfully develop, maintain and update internal controls to manage compliance within an evolving and complex regulatory environment;
- effectively identify and react to market trends;
- be involved in the successful development and deployment of the Platform;
- implement new products and services;
- successfully execute the Company’s funding strategy;
- effectively compete with other companies;
- successfully navigate economic conditions and fluctuations in the market;
- effectively manage the growth of the business;
- continue to develop, maintain and scale the Platform;
- effectively use finite personnel and technology resources;
- effectively maintain and scale financial and risk management controls and procedures;
- maintain the security of technology infrastructure, and the confidentiality of the information provided and utilized therein; and
- attract, integrate and retain qualified employees and contractors.
h. Risk that the Platform, as Developed, Will Not Meet Expectations: The Platform presently is under continued development by its owner and may undergo significant changes. Any expectations or assumptions regarding the form and functionality of the Platform or the Tokens (including participant behavior) held by the owner of the Platform, the Company or you may not be met, for any number of reasons, including, without limitation, mistaken assumptions or analysis, a change in the design and implementation plans, and changes in the execution of the Platform. Moreover, we may not be able to retain full and effective control over how other participants will use the Platform, what products or services will be offered through the Platform by third parties, or how third-party products and services will utilize Tokens (if at all). This could create the risk that the Tokens or Platform, as further developed and maintained, may not meet your expectations. Furthermore, despite our good faith efforts to assist the owner of the Platform to develop and participate in the Platform, it is still possible that the Platform will experience malfunctions or otherwise fail to be adequately maintained, which may negatively impact the Platform and Tokens, and the potential utility of the Tokens.
i. The value of the Tokens will be affected by the success of the Platform: Because the Tokens are intended for use on the Platform, a failure by the owner of the Platform to successfully develop and/or maintain the Platform would negatively affect the value of the Tokens. There is no guarantee that the Platform will develop as planned or become successful in the marketplace.
j. Long-term viability of cryptoassets: Cryptoassets, including those like the Tokens, are a new and relatively untested product. There is considerable uncertainty about their long-term viability, which could be affected by a variety of factors, including many market-based factors such as economic growth, inflation, and others. In addition, the success of cryptoassets (including the Tokens) will depend on the long-term utility and economic viability of blockchain and other new technologies related to cryptoassets. Due in part to these uncertainties, the price of cryptoassets are volatile and the Tokens may be hard to sell. The Company does not control any of these factors, and therefore may not be able to control the ability of the Tokens to maintain their value over time.
k. Further innovations in the cryptoasset industry may cause the Tokens to lose value: The development and acceptance of the cryptographic and algorithmic protocols governing the issuance of, and transactions in, cryptoassets is subject to a variety of factors that are difficult to evaluate and predict. The use of cryptoassets to, among other things, buy and sell goods and services is part of a new and rapidly evolving commercial practice that employs digital assets based on a computer-generated mathematical and/or cryptographic protocol. The growth of this commercial practice in general, and the use of cryptoassets in particular, is subject to a high degree of uncertainty. Factors affecting further development of the cryptoasset industry include, among other things, the continued worldwide adoption of cryptoassets; governmental and quasi-governmental regulation of cryptoassets and/or cryptoasset exchanges; changing consumer demographics, tastes and preferences; sustained development and maintenance of open-source software protocols; the popularity and availability of alternative and/or new payment services; and general economic conditions. If these factors negatively affect or impede the development of the cryptoasset industry, the value of your Tokens may also be negatively affected.
l. Inability to Fund Development or Maintenance: The Company may not be able to fund development of the Tokens while the owner of the Platform may not be able to develop or maintain the Platform in the manner that it was intended.
m. Risks from Taxation: The tax characterization of the Tokens is uncertain. You must seek Your own tax advice in connection with acquiring and holding Tokens, which may result in adverse tax consequences to You, including withholding taxes, income taxes, and tax reporting requirements. An investment in the Tokens may result in adverse tax consequences, including withholding taxes, income taxes, and tax reporting requirements. Additionally, subsequent transactions in cryptoassets such as the Tokens may cause investors to incur tax liabilities. Further, any reward received in the form of, or through the use of, Tokens may result in additional tax liability. Each investor should consult with and must rely upon the advice of its own professional tax advisors.
n. Risk of Theft and Hacking:
i. Smart contracts, software applications and the Platform may be exposed to attacks by hackers or other individuals, groups, organizations or countries that interfere with the Platform or the availability of the Tokens in any number of ways, including denial of service attacks, Sybil attacks, spoofing, smurfing, malware attacks, or consensus-based attacks, or phishing, or other novel methods that may or may not be known. Any such successful attacks could result in theft or loss of Tokens, adversely impacting the ability to further develop the Platform and/or related Platforms and derive any usage or functionality from Tokens. You must take appropriate steps to satisfy Yourself of the integrity and veracity of relevant websites, systems and communications. Furthermore, because the Platform is based on open-source software, there is a risk that a third party or a member of the Company’s team may intentionally or unintentionally introduce weaknesses or defects into the core infrastructure of the Platform, which could negatively affect the Platform and Tokens.
ii. You acknowledge, understand and accept that if Your private key or password gets lost or stolen, the Tokens associated with Your wallet address may be unrecoverable and permanently lost. Additionally, any third party that gains access to Your private key, including by gaining access to the login credentials relating to Your wallet, may be able to misappropriate Your Tokens. Any errors or malfunctions caused by or otherwise related to the digital wallet or vault You choose to receive and store Tokens, including Your own failure to properly maintain or use such digital wallet or vault, may also result in the loss of Your Tokens, for which the Company shall have no liability.
o. Risk of Security Weaknesses in the Platform: The Platform consists, at least in part, of open source software that may be based on other open source software. There is a risk that the Company or other third parties may intentionally or unintentionally introduce weaknesses or bugs into the core infrastructural elements of the Platform interfering with the use of or causing the loss of Tokens.
p. Risk of Weaknesses or Exploitable Breakthroughs in the Field of Cryptography: Advances in cryptography, or technical advances such as the development of quantum computing, could present risks to cryptocurrencies and the Platform by rendering ineffective the cryptographic consensus mechanism that underpins the Platform protocol, which could result in the theft, loss or decreased utility of the Tokens. Smart contracts, blockchain application software and blockchain platform protocols are still in an early development stage and relatively unproven. There is no warranty or assurance that the process for creating Tokens will be uninterrupted or error-free and there is an inherent risk that the software could contain defects, weaknesses, vulnerabilities, viruses or bugs causing, inter alia, the complete loss of contributions and/or Tokens.
q. Risk of Lack of Adoption or Use of the Platform: While the Tokens should not be viewed as an investment, they may have value over time. That value may be limited or non-existent if the Platform lacks acceptance, use and adoption, which may have an adverse impact on the Tokens.
r. Risk of an Illiquid Market for Tokens: There may never be any marketplace for Tokens. There are currently no exchanges upon which the Tokens would trade. If exchanges do develop, they will likely be relatively new and subject to poorly understood regulatory oversight. They may, therefore, be more exposed to fraud and failure than established, regulated exchanges for other products and have a negative impact on the Tokens. To the extent that any third party ascribes an external exchange value to Tokens (e.g. as denominated in a crypto or fiat currency), such value may be extremely volatile and diminish to zero. If (despite Your representations to us to the contrary) You are holding Tokens as a form of investment on a speculative basis or otherwise, or for a financial purpose, with the expectation or desire that their inherent, intrinsic or cash-equivalent value may increase with time, You assume all risks associated with such speculation or actions, and any errors associated therewith, and accept that the Tokens are not offered by the Company or its Affiliates on an investment basis.
s. Risk of Dissolution of the Platform: It is possible that, due to any number of reasons, including development issues with the Platform, the failure of business relationships, lack of public interest, lack of funding, or competing intellectual property claims, the Platform may no longer be viable as a business or otherwise and may dissolve or fail to maintain commercial or legal viability, or be abandoned. There is no assurance that You will receive any benefits through the Tokens.
t. Risk of Malfunction in the Platform: It is possible that the Platform malfunctions in an unfavorable way, including one that results in the loss of the Tokens.
u. Risk Arising from Lack of Governance Rights: Because the Tokens confer only limited governance rights with respect to the Platform and the Company; all decisions involving the Company (including to sell or liquidate the Company) will be made by the Company acting in its sole and absolute discretion, and all decisions involving the Platform including, but not limited to, decisions to discontinue the Platform and to create and issue more Tokens, will be made by the Company. These decisions could adversely affect the Platform and/or Tokens You hold.
v. Risks Associated with Incomplete Information regarding the Tokens of the Platform: You will not have full access to all the information relevant to the Company, the Tokens and/or the Platform. The Company is not required to update You on the progress of the Platform. You are responsible for making Your own decision in respect of the acquisition of the Tokens. The Company does not provide You with any recommendation or advice in respect of the acquisition of the Tokens. You may not rely on the Company to provide You with complete or up to date information.
w. The holders of Tokens will not be in any fiduciary, partnership, trustee, agency or similar relationship with the Company or any of its Affiliates and will not be owed any fiduciary duty by the Company or any of its Affiliates. The holders of Tokens have no direct management, equity, voting or similar rights in the Company or any of its Affiliates.
x. In order to seek compliance with (or to seek to mitigate the impact of) any laws, statutes, ordinances, rules, regulations, judgments, injunctions, orders, treaties, administrative acts or decrees of any nation or government, any state or other political subdivision thereof, any entity exercising legislative, judicial or administrative functions of or pertaining to government, including, without limitation, any government authority, agency, department, board, commission or instrumentality, and any court, tribunal or arbitrator(s) of competent jurisdiction, and any self-regulatory organization believed by the Company or its Affiliates to apply to or affect the Company or its Affiliates, the Platform or the Tokens, the Company may in its sole and absolute discretion take such steps as it considers necessary or convenient to comply with such matters including, without limitation, the termination of the Tokens and/or the Platform. In addition, the Company may take such steps as it considers necessary or convenient where it believes or suspects the Tokens may be used, trafficked or applied in the attempted furtherance of money laundering, terrorist financing, tax evasion or other unlawful activity or where it believes the Platform is no longer viable.
y. Regulation of (i) tokens (including the Tokens); (ii) cryptocurrencies (iii) blockchain technologies; and (iv) cryptocurrency exchanges is currently underdeveloped and is likely to evolve rapidly, vary significantly among international, national, federal, state and local jurisdictions and is subject to significant uncertainty. Various legislative and executive bodies in the United States, South Korea, China, Singapore, among other countries, are currently considering, or may in the future consider, laws, regulations, guidance, or other actions, which may severely impact the development and growth of the Platform, the Company and the Tokens. Other countries may adopt similar approaches. Failure by the Company or users of the Platform to comply with any laws, rules and regulations, some of which may not exist yet or are subject to interpretation and may be subject to change, could result in a variety of adverse consequences, including civil penalties and fines. New or changing laws and regulations or interpretations of existing laws and regulations would likely have numerous material adverse consequences on the Company and the Tokens. Therefore, there can be no assurance that any new or continuing regulatory scrutiny or initiatives will not have a material adverse impact on the value of the Tokens or impede the activities of the Company.
z. Representation by legal counsel: Travers Thorp Alberga (as to matter of British Virgin Islands law) currently represents the Company. Travers Thorp Alberga does not represent any current or prospective investors with respect to an investment the Tokens. No separate counsel has been engaged by the Company to represent any current or prospective investors with respect to an investment in the Tokens. Travers Thorp Alberga may be removed as counsel by the Company at any time without the consent of, or notice to, investors. In addition, Travers Thorp Alberga does not undertake on behalf of or for the benefit of investors to monitor the compliance of the Company with applicable laws.
aa. The Company has the exclusive right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to address and remediate any of the operational, legal or regulatory risks presented as of the date hereof or hereafter. In the exercise of such rights, it is possible that the Company may determine that the continued development of the Platform is not feasible. Accordingly, there is a material risk that the Company and its Affiliates may not successfully continue to develop, market and operate the Platform and the Tokens.
Unanticipated Risks: Cryptographic tokens are a relatively new and comparatively untested technology. In addition to the risks discussed herein, there are risks that the Company cannot anticipate. Further risks may materialize as unanticipated combinations or variations of the discussed risks or the emergence of new risks.
