Digital assets including without limitation crypto currencies (collectively “Assets”) are a digital representation of value functioning as a medium of exchange, but they are not legal tender in most countries of the world. Assets can sometimes be exchanged for certain fiat currencies, but generally they are not backed or supported by any government or central bank. Their value is completely derived by market forces of supply and demand, and they are more volatile than fiat currencies, securities or traditional investments. The value of Assets is derived from the continued willingness of market participants to exchange fiat currency for such Assets, which may result in the potential for permanent and total loss of value of a particular Asset should the market for such Asset reduce substantially or disappear in its entirety.
Assets as well as trading and investing in Assets using the Site may not be covered by any sort of insurance. Legislative and regulatory changes or actions at the national or international level may adversely affect the use, transfer, exchange, and value of Assets. Transacting and investing in Assets comes with a number of risks, including volatile market price swings or flash crashes, market manipulation, and cyber security risks. In addition, markets and exchanges dealing in such Assets are not regulated with the same level of controls or customer protections available in equity, option, futures, or foreign exchange investing.
Trading and investing in Assets requires knowledge of markets for such Assets. In attempting to profit through Asset trading and investing you are required to compete with traders worldwide. You should have appropriate knowledge and experience before engaging in substantial Asset trading or investing.
There is no assurance that a person accepting an Asset as payment today will continue to do so in the future. You should conduct independent in-depth research into the legitimacy of each respective Asset, including its platform, before investing. The features, functions, characteristics, operation, use and other properties of the specific Asset may be complex, technical, or difficult to understand or evaluate. The Asset may be vulnerable to attacks on its security, integrity or operation, including attacks using computing power sufficient to overwhelm the normal operation of the particular Asset’s blockchain or other underlying technology. Some Asset transactions will be deemed to be made when recorded on a public ledger, which is not necessarily the date or time that a transaction may have actually been initiated.
Trading and investing in Assets can be extremely risky and can lead to large and immediate financial losses. The volatility and unpredictability of the price of Assets relative to fiat currency may result in significant loss over a short period of time. Transactions in Assets may be irreversible, and, accordingly, losses due to fraudulent or accidental transactions may not be recoverable. The inherent nature of Assets may lead to an increased risk of fraud or cyber attacks. Under certain market conditions, you may find it difficult or impossible to liquidate a position quickly, or even in the long-term, at a reasonable price. This can occur, for example, when the market for a particular Asset suddenly drops, or if trading is halted due to recent news events, unusual trading activity, or changes in the underlying Asset system or any national or international legislation. The greater the volatility of a particular Asset, the greater the likelihood that problems may be encountered in executing a transaction in relation to that Asset. In addition to normal market risks, you may experience losses
due to one or more of the following: system failures, hardware failures, software failures, network connectivity disruptions, and data corruption.
An Asset may change or otherwise cease to operate as expected due to changes made to its underlying technology, changes made using its underlying technology, or changes resulting from an attack. These changes may include, without limitation, a "fork," a "rollback," an "airdrop," or a "bootstrap." Such changes may dilute or wipe out the value of an existing Asset position and/or distribute the value of an existing Asset position to another Asset. Fasset in its sole discretion may or may not support any of these changes. Any Asset may be cancelled, lost or double spent, or otherwise lose all or most of its value, due to forks, rollbacks, attacks, or failures to operate as intended. The nature of Assets implies that any technological difficulties experienced by Fasset may prevent you from accessing, disposing or otherwise dealing in your Assets.
