You shall assume responsibility for any of the Risks listed in these Terms and any other risks, assumptions and decisions involved.
By using this App, You acknowledge and understand the purpose and complexity of Digital Assets markets any systems based on distributed ledger technology, how their storage is carried out and how they are transmitted and how its full framework are significant and sufficient, and you shall assume responsibility for any of the Risks listed in these Terms and any other risks, assumptions and decisions involved.
You should ensure that You have appropriate financial resources to request for the Execution of Orders, and that You have the ability to bear any losses that may arise from your trading activity. You should not rely on being able to generate profits in order to pay down or relinquish any credit or financing You might have entered into. You acknowledge that the Company does not provide any financial advice or any form of advice in relation to the Transactions you intend to execute.
You are also aware that the market may be highly volatile. Such volatility could be caused not only by the Company's operational performance or other events involving the Company and/or its Users, or competitors, but also by changes in general conditions in the economy or the financial markets, and the fintech industry in particular.
As a result of such fluctuations, You are also aware that the Digital Assets and/or Fiat Assets which You purchase may not retain the same Transaction Price or above that Transaction Price and important losses may be incurred with potentially no profit or return.
The Market Price of Digital Assets, and/or Fiat Assets which appear in your Wallet or which you intend to execute a Transaction for are subject to various factors of price volatility which include, but are not limited to: (i) actual or anticipated fluctuations in the financial condition of the market; (ii) market expectations for the financial performance of Digital Assets and/or Fiat Assets; (iii) the perception of the success and impact of Digital Assets, and/or Fiat Assets; (iv) the entrance of new individuals within the market, who may enter through other mediums and not necessarily from the App; (v) new products in the markets of the Company; (v) actual or anticipated sales of the Digital Assets and/or Fiat Assets; (vi) the (il)liquidity of the market for Digital Assets and/or Fiat Assets; (vii) new laws or regulations or changes in interpretations of existing laws and regulations affecting the Digital Assets market and/or Fiat Assets market (viii) general market and economic conditions; (ix) confidence in the Fintech industry and/or in distributed ledger technology and/or in Digital Assets and/or Fiat Assets market; (x) expiration of any lock-up undertakings related to the Digital Assets, CHSB Tokens and/or Fiat Assets offered on Exchanges to which the Execution Interface is interfaced; (xi) expiration of the twelve (12) month period for not using Rewards earned in the Community App; (xi) announcements of developments related to the Company's business; (xii) local market conditions; (xiii) the absence of secondary market or demand for Assets; (xiv) the termination of the obligatory Staking period for the benefits incurred by a Premium Account.
The Company does not provide, nor can it control, the prices for the Assets for which Orders may be executed on the Wealth App. The Market Price of the Digital Assets and/or Fiat Assets is influenced by a broad array of factors and can change rapidly and unexpectedly, meaning the value of those Digital Assets and/or Fiat Assets, and your related profits and losses on your Assets, can also change rapidly and unexpectedly. Amongst other things, prices of Digital Assets and/or Fiat Assets can be subject to gapping (where the price of the Digital Assets and/or Fiat Assets opens significantly above or below the previous day’s closing price) and slippage (where the price an Digital Assets and/or Fiat Assets is executed at is different to the price to that which was quoted at the time the Order was submitted), especially in periods of market volatility.
Market Price and volume fluctuations are often experienced with regards to Digital Assets and/or Fiat Assets. Such fluctuations as well as the economic situation of the financial markets may have a significant negative effect on the value of Digital Assets and/or Fiat Assets, regardless of the operating results and the financial position of the Company. Fluctuations in the Market Price of Digital Assets and/or Fiat Assets may result in a negative impact on the Digital Assets and/or Fiat Assets offered by the Exchanges interfaced to the Execution Interface.
The Company cannot ensure that an active and liquid trading market for Digital Assets and/or Fiat Assets will exist and that the Market Prices presented for Digital Assets and/or Fiat Assets on Exchanges interfaced with the Execution Interface will not decline. The liquidity of any Exchange will depend on the number of purchasers and sellers, the market for similar instruments, the market capitulation of the Digital Assets and the availability of the Fiat Assets and other factors beyond the Company's control.
By using the App, You acknowledge and understand the purpose and complexity of Digital Assets and/or Fiat Assets. You also acknowledge and understand that any systems based on distributed ledger technology, how their storage is carried out, how they are transmitted as well as the and full framework are significant and sufficient, and the tradability of Assets requires them to be traded on an Exchange. The Company cannot guarantee for the listings on Exchanges. In case of a listing on an Exchange, Digital Assets and/or Fiat Assets could be subject to considerable fluctuations in value and Market Price and that the Digital Assets and/or Fiat Assets can therefore also exhibit increased or high volatility.
This also concerns the future development of the Digital Assets and/or Fiat Assets and the exchange rate at which the Digital Assets and/or Fiat Assets could possibly be exchanged into other Digital Assets, and/or Fiat Assets in the future. A forecast of the future performance of the Digital Assets and/or Fiat Assets or market liquidity is therefore not possible to be given and shall not appear on the App.
However, there is an indication of the trends with which You Execute Orders. You shall be responsible for the interpretation which results in You carrying out a Transaction. In particular, no statements will be made regarding how much liquidity is available or could become available for the Digital Assets. As a consequence, there can be no assurance (i) that liquidity on the Exchange will develop or continue after the Transaction, (ii) that the Market Price of the Digital Assets exhibited by Exchanges will not decline below the Transaction Price or that (iii) other individuals in the market will be able to sell their Digital Assets quickly. You are solely responsible for the Orders you pass through the App and the Execution Interface.
The Transaction Price may not be indicative of the Market Price of the Digital Assets and/or Fiat Assets after completion of the Transaction. The Market Price exhibited on the Exchanges to which the Execution Interface is interfaced will depend upon several factors which are beyond the Company's control. These factors include, but are not limited to: market expectation of Digital Assets or Fiat Asset’s performance or financial condition; fluctuations in the financial positions or operating results; general market and economic conditions; announcements by foundations or companies have launched the Digital Assets, their business, their customers and their suppliers and any other secondary markets which are not interfaced to the Execution Interface as well as the Market Price of BTC and other Digital Assets.
Further, developments in, and changes to recommendations by analysts regarding the Digital Assets and/or Fiat Assets market may also affect the Market Price of Digital Assets and/or Fiat Assets. Any such market fluctuations may adversely affect the Market Price of Digital Assets and/or Fiat Assets.
It is unclear, according to the current state of the law and case law, whether and to which extent the transfer of Digital Assets will be treated under the law of the country from where the Digital Asset is launched. Therefore, the User acknowledges that activity which was deemed to be legal in a country where the Services are offered may be deemed to be illegal upon a change of law or due to the introduction of a directive, guideline or regulation from a governmental authority.
You have the sole responsibility of monitoring the value of the Assets you hold and you should ensure that you can access the App on an ongoing basis so as to do this.
By using the App, You hereby understand and acknowledge that any Assets that You place on your User Account could be held on any of the Exchanges presented in Annex 2 below. You hereby acknowledge and understand the risks associated with holding Assets on an Exchange. You hereby accept and understand that by using the app You can potentially lose all of your Assets.
The Company cannot give any assurance that the Digital Assets which are available on the Exchanges are either originating or have been mined within a country which is sanctioned or black-listed by FATF or if the origins of the funds with which the Digital Assets were initially purchased before being available on the Exchange are illicit funds which originate from money laundering. The User cannot hold the Company liable for any losses or damages which may arise from any proceedings against the User who owns Digital Assets which either originate from sanctioned or black-listed countries or which were purchased using illicit funds before being made available on the Exchanges.
The Fiat Assets or Digital Assets made available on the Exchanges which are interfaced with the Execution Interface are all admitted to trading, and in the event that You wish to execute a Transaction, it is not guaranteed that there will be enough demand to carry out the Transaction. In some circumstances, such as instances of market volatility or where any Exchange has been suspended or otherwise restricted, it could also not be possible to carry out the Transactions within the App.
These Risks are related to information provided on the App regarding your Assets and includes, but is not limited to, financial market data, quotes, news, analyst opinions and research reports, graphs or data and Daily Bitcoin Analysis. The information provided by us on the App Content or Website Content is not intended as advice. The Company does not endorse or approve the information and we make it available to you only as a service for your own convenience. The Company and its Third-Party Service Providers do not guarantee the accuracy, timeliness, completeness or correct sequencing of any of the App Content or Website Content or warrant any results from your use or reliance on the information.
Any information may quickly become unreliable for various reasons including, for example, changes in market conditions or economic circumstances. Neither the Company nor the Third-Party Service Providers or Exchanges have an obligation towards the User to update any information or opinions or Market Prices.
The Company cannot warrant that there will be no threats or security risks or hacks to the App, the Software, the Exchanges, the servers within the Company which operate the App or the Execution Interface, the storage wallets of the Digital Asset Custodian as well as any hacks or security risks to the Fiat Custodian within the App. The Company cannot warrant that there will not be interruptions to the Service due to failures of Exchanges which are interfaced to the Execution Interface, due to the failure of the operations of the Fiat Custodian or due to the failure of the operations of the Digital Asset Custodian.
Code cracking or technical advances such as the development of quantum computers, could present a risk for all distributed ledger technology. This could result in the theft, loss, disappearance, destruction or devaluation of Digital Assets.
The source code underlying the App, the Execution Interface, the Exchanges to which the Execution Interface is interfaced and the source code underlying the Digital Asset could be updated, amended, altered or modified from time to time. There can be no guarantee that such update, amendment, alteration or modification will not adversely affect the functionality of the Digital Asset.
Changes to the protocol, source code or the distributed ledger technology and smart contract technology underlying the Digital Assets may result in the development of updates or parallel chains (so-called "hard forks") when some of the nodes that are validating transactions on the basis of the old version of the protocol, while other nodes are validating transactions on the basis of the new protocol. The Company may, in this event, freeze the exchanging of the Digital Assets which are affected by this change in technology until the User has decided as to which version of the protocol it will support. The Company may choose to not allow Transactions for a Digital Asset which underwent a hard fork.
In the event of such a freeze, the User will not be able to perform any Transaction related to this Digital Asset. Such a freeze may occur after the hard fork has started to take effect. This could lead to significant uncertainties as to the Market Price of Digital Assets which has been transferred immediately before the freeze has been implemented. Hackers or other groups or organizations may also attempt to interfere with Wallets managed by the Digital Asset Custodian and Fiat Custodian through sybil attacks, phishing, spoofing, smurfing, malware attacks or consensus-based attacks.
It is important to understand these risks due to the fact that the Company does not hold the Assets itself.
ALSO, BY USING THE APP, YOU HEREBY UNDERSTAND AND ACKNOWLEDGE THAT ANY ASSETS THAT YOU PLACE ON YOUR USER ACCOUNT COULD BE HELD ON ANY OF THE EXCHANGES PRESENTED IN ANNEX 4 BELOW OR WITH A THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDER. BY USING THE APP, YOU HEREBY UNDERSTAND AND ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOUR ASSETS COULD BE AT A RISK BECAUSE OF HACKS OR SECURITY RISKS, WHICH COULD RESULT IN A THEFT OR LOSS OF YOUR ASSETS.
Generally, the regulation related to the operation of the App and the Execution Interface embedded into the App, as well as the regulation of Digital Assets, Exchanges is generally undeveloped and likely to rapidly evolve. These foregoing regulations can also vary significantly among international jurisdictions. Such regulations are therefore subject to significant uncertainty.
To the extent that a domestic government or quasi-governmental agency exerts regulatory authority, a Digital Asset may be materially and adversely affected. Digital Assets also face an uncertain regulatory landscape in many jurisdictions. Various jurisdictions may, soon, adopt laws, regulations or directives that affect Digital Assets. Such laws, regulations or directives may conflict with the Company’s current understanding of the legal landscape or may directly and negatively impact the Company’s Services. The effect of any future regulatory change is impossible to predict, but such change could be substantial and materially adverse to the development and growth of the Company.
New or changing laws and regulations or interpretations of existing laws and regulations in various jurisdictions may materially and adversely impact the value of the Digital Asset, the liquidity of the Digital Assets, the ability to access marketplaces or exchanges on which to trade the Digital Assets, and the structure, rights and transferability of Digital Assets or exchanges.
Future changes in national and international laws and other regulations may affect the Company’s operations and/or the way the App operates and/or the availability of the Services. The Company acknowledges that is exposed to national laws and cross-border legislation embodied in laws and directives in the areas of tax, anti-money laundering and financial services. Further, it cannot be excluded that changes in the regulatory environment will adversely affect the App and/or the provision of the Services.
The Company does not exclude the possibility that the Fiat Assets and/or Digital Assets placed by you at the Fiat Custodian and/or the Digital Assets Custodian are returned back to your External Wallet or Bank Account. The Third-Party Service Providers have their own internal anti-money laundering policies and procedures which are applicable to any Assets which are available on your User Account. Therefore, even though these Assets are accepted through the SwissBorg Wealth App and subject to SwissBorg’s AML Policy, you are also aware that there is the possibility that your Assets might be refused by the Third-Party Service Providers.
A reputational risk of Digital Assets due to the wrongful behavior of some actors in this field cannot be excluded by the Company. The materialization of such risk may have a negative impact on the Market Price of Digital Assets.
Digital Assets which are launched on an Exchange are usually supported by a white paper or prospectus, depending on whether the Digital Asset is considered to be a payment token, an asset token or a utility token. The content of the white paper or the prospectus is the responsibility of the entity or foundation which issues the Digital Asset.
The Company does not assume responsibility for information within the whitepaper or prospectus which explains the purposes, scope or intent of a third-party when launching a Digital Asset within an Exchange. If the Digital Asset is available on any of the Exchanges to which the Execution Interface is connected, the User accepts and warrants that he/she will not hold the Company liable for any misrepresentation of information or inaccuracies which are present in the Whitepaper or Prospectus of a Digital Asset.
