Risks

By accessing and using the Launchpad, you represent that you understand the financially and technically risks associated with using cryptographic and blockchain-based systems, including, to the extent that:

  • You understand that the markets for these digital assets are nascent and highly volatile due to risk factors including, but not limited to, adoption, speculation, technology, security, and regulation.

  • You understand that anyone can create fake versions of existing tokens and tokens that falsely claim to represent projects, and acknowledge and accept the risk that you may mistakenly trade those or other tokens.

  • You understand that smart contract transactions automatically execute and settle, and that blockchain-based transactions are irreversible when confirmed.

  • You acknowledge and accept that the cost and speed of transacting with cryptographic and blockchain-based systems such as Ethereum are variable and may increase dramatically at any time. ​

  • You acknowledge that we are not responsible for any of these variables or risks, do not own or control the protocol, and cannot be held liable for any resulting losses that you experience while accessing or using the Launchpad.

  • You understand and agree to assume full responsibility for all of the risks of accessing and using the Launchpad.

  • You understand that we do not own or control any of the underlying software through which blockchain networks are formed. In general, the software underlying blockchain networks, including the Ethereum blockchain, is open source, such that anyone can use, copy, modify, and distribute it.

Losing control of your private key(s) will permanently and irreversibly deny you access to digital assets on the Ethereum blockchain or other blockchain based network. If your private key(s) are lost, then you will not be able to transfer your digital assets to any other blockchain address or wallet. If this occurs, then you will not be able to realize any value or utility from the digital assets that you may hold.

  • You understand that our services and your digital assets could be impacted by one or more regulatory inquiries or regulatory actions, which could impede or limit the ability to continue providing our services.
