(a). You acknowledge that the Verified Network and your use of the Verified Network present certain risks, including without limitation the following risks • Risks associated with accessing the Verified Network through third party web or mobile interfaces. You are responsible for doing your own diligence on those interfaces to understand and accept the risks that use entails. You are also responsible for doing your own diligence on those interfaces to understand and accept any fees that those interfaces may charge. • Risks associated with any Smart Contracts with which you interact. • Although we do not have access to your assets, you are reminded and acknowledge that at any time, your access to your Cryptocurrency Assets through third party wallet services, unrelated to the Verified Wallet or the Site, may be suspended or terminated or there may be a delay in your access or use of your Cryptocurrency Assets, which may result in the Cryptocurrency Assets diminishing in value or you being unable to complete a Smart Contract. • You are reminded of the inherent risks with digital assets and decentralized finance including the fact that tokens are not legal tender and are not backed by any government. Unlike fiat currencies, which are regulated and backed by local governments and central banks, tokens are based only on technology and user consensus, which means that in cases of manipulations or market panic, central governments will not take any corrective actions or measures to achieve stability, maintain liquidity or protect their value. There is a possibility that certain transactions cannot be settled or may be difficult to settle, or can be completed only at significantly adverse prices depending on the market situation and/or market volume. Transactions may be irreversible, and, accordingly, potential losses due to fraudulent or accidental transactions are not recoverable. Some blockchain transactions are deemed to be completed when recorded on a public ledger, which is not necessarily the date or time when you or another party initiated the transaction. • The regulatory frameworks applicable to blockchain transactions in connection with tokens are still developing and evolving. It is possible that your transactions or funds are, or may be in the future, subject to various reporting, tax or other liabilities and obligations. Legislative and regulatory changes or actions at the country or international level may materially and adversely affect the use, transfer, exchange, and value of your tokens. • The Verified Wallet, the Site and/or application may be wholly or partially suspended or terminated for any or no reason, which may limit your access to your Cryptocurrency Assets. • You are solely responsible for understanding and complying with any and all Applicable Laws in connection with your acceptance of these Terms and your use of any part of the Verified Network, including but not limited to those related to taxes as well as reporting and disclosure obligations. • This list of risk factors is non-exhaustive, and other risks, arising either now or in the future, could additionally be relevant and applicable to you in making an informed judgment to accept, or continue to accept, these Terms and/or use, or continue to use the Verified Network.
