11. Disclosure of Certain Risk Factors associated with Tokens
The Participant understands that the acquisition of Tokens involves substantial risk, including, without limitation, the following (the terms herein shall have the meaning assigned to them in the Agreement to which this is attached):
a)The Company has no operational history.
b)The Company maintains sole discretion in the conduct of its business, including as
related to its offer, maintenance and use of any Token and the Platform. The Participant will not have the ability to influence the performance or decisions made by Company.
c)The acquisition of Tokens is subject to severe constraints on liquidity. At the time of the Token Crowdsale Event, there is no market for the Tokens and such a market may not develop. The acquisition of Tokens is suitable only for sophisticated and experienced Participants who are financially able to maintain their tokens for an indefinite period of time and who can afford a loss of their entire Participation Amount.
d) Acquisition of Tokens is highly volatile and speculative and considered highly risky. In particular, the Participant understands and accepts the inherent risks associated with Tokens, including, but not limited to, risks associated with
(a) decentralization of the blockchain technology; (b) money laundering;
(d) anonymity of transactions;
(e) exploitation for illegal purposes;
(g) instability and other flaws of exchanges or brokers/custodians; (h) the lack of regulation of tokens as of the date hereof.
e) The Participant understands and accepts that the software and hardware, technology and technical concepts and theories usually used by issuers of Tokens is still in an early development stage and unproven, there is no warranty that the technology will be uninterrupted or error-free and there is an inherent risk that the technology could contain weaknesses, vulnerabilities or bugs causing, inter alia, the complete loss of the Tokens and the Participant’s entire Participation Amount.
f) The Participant understands and accepts that the distribution of a Token and the development of the Project by the Crowdsale of Token, may be abandoned for a number of reasons, including but not limited to failure of the Project, lack of interest of the industry and/or the public, lack of funding, lack of commercial success or prospects (e.g. caused by competing projects) etc. The Participant, therefore, understands that there is no assurance that, even if such Project is partially or fully developed and launched, the Participant may receive any functionality through the Token held by him, and that they may become worthless. The Participant further understands and accepts that the Project financed by the Crowdsale of Token, may give rise to other, alternative projects, promoted by third parties unaffiliated to the issuer of the Token, under which the Token will have no intrinsic value.
g) Tokens are usually accessed using a private key that corresponds to the Wallet at which it is stored. The Participant understands and accepts that if the private key or the “seed” used to create the address and corresponding private key got lost or stolen, the obtained Token associated with the Participant’s address might be unrecoverable and will be permanently lost.
h) The Participant understands and accepts that the underlying software application and software platform of Token, the Platform, the internet, the blockchain network, the Participant, and other involved software, technology components and/or platforms concerned with Token may be exposed to attacks by hackers or other individuals that could result in theft or loss of Token and the Participant’s entire Participation Amount.
i) The Participant understands and accepts that public blockchain-based systems depend on independent validators, and therefore may be vulnerable to consensus attacks including, but not limited to, double-spend attacks, majority voting power attacks, race condition attacks and censorship attacks. Any successful attacks present a risk to such a system, expected proper execution and sequencing of Token related transactions, and expected proper execution and sequencing of software computations, including loss of the Participant’s entire Participation Amount.
12.1 Repayment of the Participation Amount or distribution of Tokens in accordance with Clause 4 or 5 above will constitute the full and final discharge of any and all obligations of the Company hereunder and thereupon this Agreement shall terminate and be void in its entirety with no further obligations of the Company.
12.2 The Company may withhold any amounts required by applicable law from any repayment or conversion of the Participation Amount. The Company may condition any repayment or conversion of the Participation Amount on the Participant satisfying any such withholding obligations.
12.3 Neither this Agreement nor any rights or obligations hereunder may be assigned by the Participant, in whole or in part, without the express prior written consent of the Company. The Company may transfer and assign its rights and obligations hereunder to any other natural or juridical person, to another affiliate, including any entity controlled, controlling or under common control with the Company, to a third party that acquires all or substantially all of the assets subject to this Agreement or securities of the Company or any entity into which the Company shall merge or any affiliate thereof.
12.4 All notices and other communications required or permitted hereunder to be given to a party to this Agreement shall be in writing and shall be sent by fax or email or mailed by registered or certified mail, postage prepaid, or otherwise delivered by hand or by messenger. Any notice sent in accordance with this Clause 12 shall be effective (i) if mailed, seven (7) days after mailing, (ii) if sent by messenger, upon delivery, and (iii) if sent via fax or email, on the first business day following transmission accompanied by delivery notification.
The Agreement may only be amended by a written document signed by all the contracting Parties.
