- Trading rules
- Risk Disclosure
- Digital Asset trading risks. The risk of loss in trading Digital Asset pairs, and Digital Asset and Fiat pairs can be substantial. You should, therefore, carefully consider whether such trading is suitable for You in light of Your circumstances and financial resources, and You should know the following points:
- the digital asset market is a brand new and unconfirmed market. At present, there are many uses by speculators in the digital asset market, while the number of retail and commercial uses is relatively small. Trading in digital assets carries high risks. The transactions are uninterrupted around the clock, there is no limit on gains or losses, and the prices are susceptible to significant fluctuations due to the influence of market makers, speculators, and government policies of countries. You shall understand and agree that the investment in and transactions of digital assets may lead to partial or total loss of Your assets. Therefore, You shall determine the use of digital assets and the amount of digital asset transactions according to the degree of loss that You can bear, and You shall independently be responsible for any economic loss arising therefrom;
- You may sustain a total loss of the Fiat in Your Platform Account, and, in some cases, You may incur even bigger losses in Digital Assets;
- under certain market conditions, You may find it difficult or impossible to liquidate a position. This can occur, for example, when the market reaches a daily price fluctuation limit or there is insufficient liquidity in the market;
- placing contingent orders, such as "stop-loss" or "stop-limit" orders, will not necessarily limit Your losses to the intended amounts, since market conditions may make it impossible to execute such orders;
- all Digital Asset positions involve risk, and a "spread" position may not be less risky than an outright "long" or "short" position;
- the use of leverage can work against You as well as for You and can lead to large losses as well as gains. Refer to "Risks of Margins Trading" below for more information about the unique and specific risks involved with margin transactions.
- ALL THE POINTS NOTED ABOVE APPLY TO ALL DIGITAL ASSET PAIR AND DIGITAL ASSET AND FIAT PAIR TRADING. THIS BRIEF STATEMENT CANNOT DISCLOSE ALL THE RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH THESE TRADES.
- Internet transmission risks. You acknowledge that there are risks associated with utilising an Internet-based platform such as the Platform, including, but not limited to, the failure of hardware, software, and Internet connections. You acknowledge that the Operator shall not be responsible for any communication failures, disruptions, errors, distortions or delays You may experience when trading via or otherwise utilising the Platform, however caused.
- Assumption of risk. You acknowledge and agree that You shall access and use the Services at Your own risk, including but not limited to the risks described in these Terms.
- No Financial Advice The Operator is not registered as a broker-dealer, intermediary, agent, or investment advisor and has no fiduciary relationship or obligation to You in connection with any trades or other decisions or activities affected by You using the Platform. No communication or information provided to You by the Operator is intended as, or shall be considered or construed as, investment advice, financial advice, trading advice, or any other sort of advice. Unless otherwise specified in these Terms, all trades are executed automatically, based on the parameters of Your order instructions and in accordance with posted trade execution procedures, and You are solely responsible for determining whether any investment, investment strategy or related transaction is appropriate for You according to Your personal investment objectives, financial circumstances and risk tolerance, and You shall be solely responsible for any loss or liability therefrom. You should consult legal or tax professionals regarding Your specific situation. The Operator does not recommend that any Digital Asset should be bought, earned, sold, or held by You. Before making the decision to buy, sell or hold any Digital Asset, You should conduct Your own due diligence and consult Your financial advisors prior to making any investment decision. The Operator will not be held responsible for the decisions You make to buy, sell, or hold Digital Asset based on the information provided by the Operator.
- General Obligations
- This Section III.2 applies to all trades, purchases, sales, exchanges, and transfers of every Asset on the Platform.
- We can, at any time and in our sole discretion, refuse any trade, purchase, sale, or transfer of an Asset submitted via the Platform, impose limits on the trade, purchase, sale, or transfer amount permitted via the Services, or impose any other conditions or restrictions upon Your use of the Platform for depositing Assets to and withdrawing Assets from Your Platform Account or for buying, selling, or trading Digital Assets without prior notice. For example, we may limit the number of open bids, offers, or orders that You may place via the Platform or we may restrict trades from certain locations. If we exercise the right to refuse a trade, the respective Asset will not be credited to the current Platform Account and we will transfer the same amount of the Asset, less any applicable fees, back to the address from which it was sent.
- You may only cancel an offer, bid, or order initiated via the Platform if such cancellation occurs before the Operator executes the transaction; and provided that the Operator does not otherwise place limits on Your ability to cancel an offer, bid, or order initiated by You through the Services. Once Your offer, bid, or order has been executed, You may not change, withdraw or cancel Your authorization for the Operator to complete such transaction on Your behalf. If an order to trade Fiat for Digital Asset has been partially filled, You may cancel the unfilled remainder unless the order relates to a market order on the Platform. We reserve the right to refuse any cancellation request associated with a market order once You have submitted such an order. In contrast to exchange orders, all trades are irreversible once initiated. While we may, at our sole discretion, reverse a trade or transaction under certain extraordinary conditions, a customer does not have a right to a reversal of a trade or transaction.

- The Platform automatically processes all Digital Asset transfers according to the instruction received from You and does not guarantee the identity of any recipient. You should verify all transaction information prior to submitting Instructions for a Digital Asset transfer to Platform as the Digital Asset Transfer may not be cancelled or reversed once processed by the Operator unless the Operator decides at its sole discretion that the transaction should be cancelled or reversed and is technically capable of such cancellation or reversal. You acknowledge that You are responsible for ensuring the accuracy of any Instructions submitted to the Platform and that any errors may result in the irreversible loss of Your Assets.
- The Operator may either accept or reject the User Trade Request at its sole discretion, depending on market conditions and other factors at the relevant time.
- If the Operator accepts the User Trade Request, The Operator will guarantee the price (regardless of price movement) as well as the amount it provides to the User and will settle the Digital Assets accordingly. In most cases, the settlement will complete within 10 seconds. But it is sometimes possible that the settlement process takes several hours or even longer, depending on various factors, including market conditions, technical issues, etc. During the process of settlement, the User cannot cancel the conversion or transfer, withdraw, or trade the Digital Asset that is being processed. The Operator shall not be held responsible for potential loss or opportunity cost in connection with any price change of the Digital Asset being processed during this settlement period.
- In respect of Convert Limit Orders, The Operator does not guarantee the fulfilment of the limit order, even if the market price hits or crosses the limit price set by the User, as orders are executed subject to market conditions and liquidity. The Operator shall not be held responsible for any potential loss or opportunity cost due to the unsuccessful execution of limit orders in such case.
- It is recommended that Users conduct independent research into different Digital Assets prior to conversion. Users bear full responsibility for any profit or loss in connection with their use of the Operator Services.
- Fiat Trading
- If You utilise Fiat Trading as referred to under these Terms, You agree that the Operator can engage additional partners to provide regulated services.
- When effecting a Fiat trading You are buying such Assets from the Platform directly.
- For Fiat Trading You may affect a payment to the Operator via:
- Your debit or credit card by providing Your debit or credit card details, as well as the relevant amount to be converted, through the Platform. In such case, You acknowledge that the transfer of Fiat will depend on the performance of such transfer by Your bank and the rules for Fiat Transfers under these Terms. Upon the Operator receipt of confirmation from the respective Provider that such debit or credit card transaction has been authorised and consummated, we will credit the relevant amount of Asset to Your Platform Account; or
- such other additional payment methods or payment instruments that Platform may from time to time approve.
- You agree that only debit cards and/or credit cards which are issued to and/or registered in Your name will be used to effect payments to Fiat Trading.
- Margins Trading
- Unless otherwise specified by the Operator, prior to conducting Margins Trading, You must open a special “Margin\Derivative wallets” and/or complete other related procedures, following the completion of registration and identity verification for Your Platform Account.
- In accordance with and subject to this Section III.7, as part of the Services You may receive from Operator extensions of margin in the form of Digital Assets or Fiats (“margin transactions”) to use to make spot purchases and sales of Digital Assets.
- Risks of Margins Trading. Margins Trading is highly risky. As a leveraged trader, You acknowledge and agree that You access and use Margins Trading services at Your own risk, which include but are not limited to:
- the liquidity, market depth and dynamics of the trading market fluctuate violently and change rapidly. The use of leverage may work to Your advantage or disadvantage, which may result in major gains or losses as the case may be;
- You are not eligible to receive forked currencies split from any blockchain assets in Your Margin wallets, even if You have not engaged in any Margins Trading at all;
- Loans carry risk, and the value of Your blockchain assets may decline. If the value of Your assets drops to a certain level, You are responsible for dealing with these market circumstances;
- in some market situations, You may find it difficult or impossible to liquidate a position. This may occur, for example, as a result of insufficient market liquidity or technical issues on the Operator;
- placing contingent orders does not necessarily limit Your losses to the expected amount, as market conditions may prevent You from executing such orders.
- Margins Trading does not have guaranteed measures against losses. You may suffer losses that exceed the amount You deposited into Your Margin wallets.
- To start Margins Trading:
- You represent and warrant that You are neither a citizen nor a resident of any Restricted Jurisdiction;
- You should fully understand and carefully assess the risks associated with Margins Trading, and be fully responsible for any trading and non-trading activities under Your Platform Account and Margin wallets. You should not engage in Transactions or invest any amount that is beyond Your financial capacities;
- You are fully responsible for knowing the true status of any position, even if the Operator may present it incorrectly at any time;
- You agree to keep enough Digital Assets in Your Margin wallets, as required by the Operator for the users’ engagement in Margins Trading, and promptly repay Your loan in full. Failure to keep enough Digital Assets or to timely repay the outstanding loan may result in forced liquidation of the positions and loss of Digital Assets in Your Margin wallets;
- the Operator gives no guarantee of prevention of losses. If Your assets are insufficient to repay the outstanding loan after the liquidation of Your position, You are still liable for any further shortfall of Assets;
- the Operator may take measures, in its discretion and on Your behalf, to reduce Your potential losses, including but not limited to, transferring assets from Your Margin wallets into Your Account and/or vice versa;
- during the Platform maintenance, You agree to be fully responsible for managing Your Margin wallets under risks, including but not limited to, closing positions and repaying Your Loan.
- You agree to conduct all Transactions, Margins Trading on Your own, and be fully responsible for Your activities. The Operator assumes no liability for any loss or damage caused by Your use of the Services or Your unawareness of the risks associated with the use of Digital Assets or with Your use of the Platform.
- Margin function. The Operator agrees to establish for Your benefit and in Your name a feature of the Platform for You to receive Assets (“Extended Assets”) from the Operator to make spot trades through Your Platform Account. Your Margin wallets are a component of Your Platform Account.
- Margin Extensions and Trades. Subject to the Terms, the Operator agrees to provide to You, and You may obtain from and return to the Operator from time to time, the Assets to support spot transactions (each such provision of the Assets, a “Margin Extension”). No Margin Extension will occur unless You meet or exceed any minimum balance requirements imposed by the Operator for Your Margin wallets. Moreover, notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the Operator is under no obligation to make any Margin Extensions to You and may decline a request to initiate a Margin Extension in its sole discretion.
- When You use a Margin Extension to effectuate a spot transaction, You are entering into a spot Digital Asset purchase or sale transaction with one or more third-party trader(s) on the Platform exchange (each a “Counterparty”). For example, You might use a Margin Extension from the Operator to buy bitcoin from a Counterparty. In executing such spot transactions, the Operator facilitates the transfer of ownership of the applicable Fiat from the Counterparty to You (such Fiat -- e.g., the bitcoin in the preceding example -- “Received Assets”) by registering You as the owner of the Received Assets on the Operator’s internal book-entry system.
- If You are not (or are no longer) eligible to receive Margin Extensions, each of Your then-existing Margin Extensions will become due and must be terminated:
- on or before the 28th day after such Margin Extension was made; or
- immediately upon loss of eligibility if such Margin Extension was made earlier than 28 days prior to the date on which You were no longer eligible. If You do not terminate Your Margin Extensions in full within the required time period, then the Operator may treat their Margin Obligation Period as expired, and the terms of paragraph 7.19 of this Section III.7 will apply.
- Received Assets. All Received Assets are custodial assets held by the Operator for Your benefit, as described in further detail below:
- Ownership. Title to Received Assets shall at all times remain with You and shall not transfer to the Operator, except as provided herein. As the owner of the Received Assets in Your Platform Account, You bear all risk of loss of such Received Assets. None of the Received Assets in Your Platform Account are the property of the Operator. The Operator does not represent or treat Received Assets in Your Platform Account as belonging to the Operator. Except as required by a facially valid court order, or except as provided herein, the Operator will not sell, transfer, loan, hypothecate or otherwise alienate Received Assets in Your Platform Account unless instructed by You or as otherwise authorised by these Terms. For the avoidance of doubt, and notwithstanding the foregoing, the Operator makes no warranty that Assets in Your Platform Account (including Received Assets) are held by You free and clear of any security interest or other lien or encumbrance.
- Control. You control the Received Assets held in Your Platform Account. At any time, subject to outages, downtime, and other applicable policies and the restrictions described in the Terms, You may withdraw Your Received Assets from the platform.
- Terminating Margin Extensions. To terminate a Margin Extension, You must transfer sufficient Assets from Your Platform Account to the Operator through the Platform. The Assets You use to terminate a Margin Extension must be the same asset type as the denomination of the Margin Extension (for example, You must terminate a bitcoin-denominated Margin Extension by transferring bitcoin from Your Platform Account to the Operator through the Platform). If received with respect to Extended Assets (and not Received Assets), You must return any incremental tokens generated as a result of a fork in the digital currency protocol of any Margin Extension or an airdrop of any tokens on the protocol of any Margin Extension. You may terminate a Margin Extension by either:
- directing immediately available Assets in Your Platform Account to the Operator; or
- selling requisite Collateral Assets (as defined below) or other assets in Your Platform Account on the Platform exchange and applying the proceeds to the termination of the corresponding Margin Extension. Prior to satisfying the corresponding Margin Extension pursuant to the preceding sentence, Received Assets and requisite Collateral Assets may not be otherwise withdrawn from or traded on the Platform.
- You agree to maintain in Your Platform Account, at all times during the term of a Margin Extension, a specified minimum amount of Fiat approved by the Operator to qualify as collateral ("Collateral Assets"). This minimum amount of Collateral Assets (the "Maintenance Margin Requirement"). This minimum amount of Collateral Assets (the “Maintenance Margin Requirement”) will be defined through the Platform algorithms and You will be notified of any changes to the Maintenance Margin Requirement prior to those changes taking effect. Such notice shall indicate the effective date for those changes.
- A list of assets approved by the Operator to be eligible as Collateral Assets will be defined through the Services and certain Digital Assets may only be valued as collateral on a discounted basis. You will be notified of any changes to the list of eligible Collateral Assets or discounts applied to the valuation thereof prior to those changes taking effect. Such notice shall indicate the effective date for those changes.
- For purposes of calculating Your compliance with the Maintenance Margin Requirement, the Operator will calculate (subject to any discounts) the market value of Collateral Assets on a continuous basis based on the prevailing value of each Digital Asset on one or more Digital Asset exchanges, including those operated by the Operator. The Operator has discretion to select Digital Asset exchanges for calculating this market value that the Operator, in its reasonable judgement, believes offers a reasonable valuation of a Digital Asset.
- You hereby authorise and instruct the Operator, in the event the value of Your Collateral Assets falls below the Maintenance Margin Requirement, to, without further notice to You: (a) place a market order on the Platform exchange, on Your behalf, to sell Your Received Assets and apply the proceeds towards terminating Your Margin Extension(s); and/or (b) liquidate such other Assets in Your account in the manner and amount practicable, in the Operator’s reasonable discretion, to terminate the Margin Extension either in full, or in an amount sufficient, in the Operator’s reasonable discretion, to restore the value of Your Collateral Assets to an amount equal to or exceeding the Maintenance Margin Requirement.
- Margin Obligation Period. The last day of a Margin Extension’s “Margin Obligation Period” is the date on which that Margin Extension is due and must be terminated. Generally, the Margin Obligation Period of a Margin Extension is the 365th day after the date that it is made. However, we may, in our sole discretion, modify any existing or future Margin Obligation Periods (i) in accordance with any information we make available on our website or provide to You in any other manner, or (ii) otherwise in connection with our exercise of any of our rights and obligations under these Terms. You may not request extensions to any Margin Obligation Period. We are not required to contact You prior to the expiration of the Margin Obligation Period. You hereby authorise and instruct the Operator, in the event You do not terminate Your Margin Extension in full prior to the expiration of the Margin Obligation Period, to, without further notice to You: (a) place a market order on the Platform exchange, on Your behalf, to sell Your Received Assets and apply the proceeds to the termination of the Margin Extension; and (b) liquidate such other Fiat in Your account, in the manner and amount practicable, in the Operator’s reasonable discretion, to terminate the Margin Extension in full.
- Payment of Fees
- Fees charged on and in connection with any Margin Extension shall be at the applicable rates and methods of computation specified in the Fee Schedule (the “Margin Fees”). If the Margin Fees on any Margin Extension made under these Terms exceeds the maximum rates the Operator may charge under Applicable Law, the parties hereto agree that the Margin Fees shall be reduced automatically to the maximum rates the Operator may charge under Applicable Law.
- Upon Your failure to satisfy the Maintenance Margin Requirement, to make any payment of fees when due, including Margin Fees, or to terminate a Margin Extension when required, or upon otherwise materially breaching this Section III.7, Your Margin Extensions shall be immediately due and must be terminated (and any accrued and unpaid fees thereon and any fees and costs of collection must be paid) and, to the extent permitted by Applicable Law and in addition to any other remedies available to it, the Operator, in its sole discretion, may apply the proceeds from the sale of any Digital Assets in Your Margin wallets, whether such Digital Assets are considered Collateral Assets as defined in these Terms or not, first to the payment of any outstanding fees, commissions, charges or other expenses then due to the Operator, and then to the termination of Your Margin Extensions. If Your Platform Account balance becomes negative, You agree to pay the amount of Fiat owed to the Operator within 48 hours. You may not trade on a negative Platform Account.
- Discontinuance of Margin Extension Services. In exercising its rights under Terms, the Operator may, irrespective of any Margin Obligation Period for any outstanding Margin Extension, cease making available Margin Extensions for certain Assets for any or all users, or otherwise terminate Margin Extensions for any or all users. You hereby authorise and instruct the Operator, without notice to You, as of the date that the Operator elects, to:
- liquidate Your Received Assets, in the manner practicable, in the Operator's reasonable discretion, and apply the proceeds to the termination of the Margin Extension; and/or
- liquidate such other Fiat in Your account, in the manner and amount practicable, in the Operator's reasonable discretion, to terminate the Margin Extension in full.

- charge You any applicable Futures Fees in accordance with the Fees Schedule.
- “Futures” are futures contracts between two users that obligate a user to buy or sell an asset at a specific time, quantity, and price.
- Risk of Futures Trading. Futures trading is high risk and by entering into any transactions involving the Futures Trading arrangement You assume the risks of major fluctuations related to the value of Digital Assets, as well as the risk of negative consequences when leverage is used. You acknowledge and agree that You shall not access and use the Futures Trading Services without careful and informed consideration of all the risks and that it is Your sole responsibility to analyse the positions that You are opening using Your Platform Account. You shall not enter into the transactions or commit to the Futures that are beyond Your means and reasonably expected to deter Your personal wealth.

- Futures Orders. By submitting an order via the Platform, You authorize and instruct the Operator to:
- No Brokerage. For the avoidance of any doubt all the records and transactions are executed on the Platform automatically and the Operator does not (a) provide You any broker-dealer services, or (b) act as Your intermediary, agent, advisor, or fiduciary; and (c) does not transfer or exchange any of the Assets.
- Exchange rates. Exchange rates are periodic payments between users, calculated based on the difference between the price of a Futures contract and spot prices. You authorize the Operator to undertake all necessary actions to transfer the amounts of Assets required to consummate the transfers between the users under the relevant exchange rate.
- Rewards Services
- The Operator provides You the opportunity to contribute and earn rewards (“Rewards”) on eligible, available and idle account balances You otherwise maintain in Your Platform Account (the “Rewards Programs”).

Implied Rates are forward-looking statements that reflect current expectations regarding future events, and involve significant risks and uncertainties, should not be interpreted as and shall not constitute any guarantees of future performance or results and will not necessarily be accurate indications of whether or not such performance or results will be achieved. Forward-looking statements are in no way a form of advice, solicitation or offering of or for the Rewards Program and should not be interpreted as such.

Upon receipt of Your request, we will disable the Rewards instantly; provided that we can require discretionary time in some instances to complete the full process. There’s no requirement to disable the Rewards for You to withdraw the Assets from Your Platform Account. The Platform impose no lock-up conditions nor penalty for such withdrawals.
- Our use of Rewards Assets. You grant us the right, to the fullest extent that we may effectively do so under Applicable Law and without further notice to You, to utilise Rewards Assets in our discretion; provided, that the quantity and type of Your Rewards Assets will be returned to You when You withdraw the Assets under these Terms.
- Rewards Risks Statement. The Rewards Program is risky. Before participating in the Rewards Program, it is important to understand its specific and unique risks. The Rewards Program may not suit everyone. You should carefully examine and assess Your objectives, financial resources and risk tolerance to determine whether contributing the Assets to the Rewards Program is appropriate for You. Some, but not all, of the risks and uncertainties associated with the Rewards Program are:
- the Operator is not regulated as a bank or other depository institution. Your Platform Account is not a deposit account or a bank account. The Rewards Program is not a depository or bank program and are not covered by insurance or governmental safety programs;
- the Operator does not offer securities services, is not registered under the securities laws of any jurisdiction and the Rewards Program has not been and will not be registered under the securities laws of any jurisdiction or otherwise approved by securities regulators in any jurisdiction;
- legislative and regulatory changes or actions at the state, federal or international level may adversely affect: (a) the use, transfer, and value of Rewards Assets; (b) the operations and profitability of the Rewards Program; (c) the tax treatment of the Rewards Program; and (d) Your ability to withdraw the Assets;
- Rewards are not guaranteed and we reserve the right to adjust Reward rates at our sole discretion.

You retain ownership of the Supported Tokens and such Supported Tokens shall remain property of You when On-Chain Rewards Program are enabled under these Terms. We partner with leading third-party blockchain infrastructure Provider(s) to generate On-chain rewards. Please refer to the FAQs section for further information regarding the Rewards Services.

- Slashing Penalty Disclaimer. If the Supported Token protocol determines that the Rewards Service has been erroneously operated by the Provider(s), it may cause a “slashing penalty” and non-payment of the applicable On-Chain Rewards by the Supported Token protocol. The Provider(s) has a right but no obligation to compensate You for slashing penalties, provided, however, that such slashing penalties are not a result of (a) Your acts or omissions, (b) Supported Token maintenance, bugs, or errors, (c) acts by a hacker or other malicious actor, or (d) Force Majeure Events in which case You shall bear the risk of the slashing penalties and shall have no recourse to the Provider(s) or the Operator.
