ASSUMPTION OF RISK.

You acknowledge that NFTs and cryptocurrencies carry the following risks among others. We expressly disclaim any responsibility for these risks.

Inherent Risks with Digital Assets

There are risks associated with using Internet-based digital assets such as NFTs and cryptocurrencies, including, but not limited to, the risk of hardware, software and Internet connections, the risk of malicious software introduction, and the risk that third parties may obtain unauthorized access to information stored within your electronic wallet. You accept and acknowledge that we will not be responsible for any communication failures, disruptions, errors, distortions or delays you may experience when using any blockchain network, however caused.

Value/Volatility/Not An Investment

The prices of tokens can be extremely volatile and subjective, and NFTs have no inherent or intrinsic value. To the extent there is a price or market for a blockchain asset such as a platform token, (a) those prices and markets are extremely volatile, (b) variations in the price of other digital assets could materially and adversely affect the value of any digital assets you own, including NFTs and tokens, and (c) there is no guarantee that any blockchain asset will have or retain any value. NFTs and any tokens issued by our platform are not securities or financial instruments and are not offered for investment purposes. The commercial or market value of NFTs and Tokens may materially diminish in value as a result of a variety of things, including negative publicity associated with Issuer. You accept and acknowledge that we will not be responsible for the risks of engaging in any transactions relating to your NFTs and tokens with third parties (e.g., transferring your NFT from a third party on any so-called “secondary market”).

Use of Blockchain.

The Platform does not store, send, or receive NFTs or any blockchain asset. This is because NFTs exist only by virtue of the ownership record maintained on the Platform’s supporting blockchain in the blockchain network. Any transfer of blockchain assets occurs within the supporting blockchain in the Network, and not on the Platform. We do not make any promises or guarantees about the availability of platform tokens. Upgrades to the blockchain, a hard fork or other change to the blockchain, a failure or cessation of the blockchain or its underlying cryptocurrency, or a change in how transactions are confirmed on the blockchain may have unintended, adverse effects on all blockchains using those or similar technologies. We do not make any promises or guarantees related to any third parties that provide these services. You accept and acknowledge that we will not be responsible for any loss of access to your platform tokens due to loss of your private key(s), custodial error or purchaser error, mining attacks, hacking, security weaknesses, fraud, counterfeiting, cyberattacks and other technological difficulties.

Regulatory Uncertainty

The regulatory regime governing blockchain technologies, cryptocurrencies and tokens is uncertain, and new regulations or policies may materially adversely affect the development of the Platform ecosystem, and therefore the potential utility or value of your platform tokens. You accept and acknowledge that we will not be responsible for the risk of changes to the regulatory regime governing blockchain technologies, cryptocurrencies, and tokens and new regulations, unfavorable regulatory intervention in one or more jurisdictions or policies any of which may materially adversely affect the use and value of the blockchain assets.

Tax Calculations.

You are solely responsible for determining what, if any, taxes apply to your transactions. We are not responsible for determining the taxes that apply to your transactions on the Platform or other related transactions.

Issuer maintains an anti-money laundering (“AML”) program consistent with the requirements applicable to it under the USA PATRIOT Act and the Bank Secrecy Act. You agree to comply with all related compliance procedures as required by Issuer from time to time. In addition, if applicable to your own business operations, you shall maintain an AML program consistent with such requirements. You understand, acknowledge, and agree that exports, re-exports and in-country transfers of any blockchain asset (individually, an “Item” and, collectively, the “Items”) are subject to U.S. export, import, customs, antiboycott, and economic sanctions laws, regulations, rules, and orders (each, a “Trade Control Law”). You shall not export, re-export, or otherwise transfer or provide any Item in contravention of any Trade Control Law, including to anyone (a) in Cuba, Crimea, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, or Syria, or in any other embargoed destination, or (b) listed on, or owned or controlled by anyone on, a sanctioned party list published by the U.S. Departments of Commerce or Treasury, including the Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons List (a “Sanctioned Party”).
