“We”, “us” or “our” means Purecoin .
If you have any questions, you can contact the Company by:
email: [email protected];
mobile application: log in to the App and send us a secure message.
All of the terms and definitions not stipulated in this document are stipulated in the various chapters of the Terms and Conditions available on the Website.
You gain ownership of the underlying asset when using the Virtual currency service offered by Purecoin.
All Crypto assets carry a high degree of risk and are not suitable for many investors. This notice provides you with information about the risks associated with these products, but it cannot explain all of the risks nor how such risks relate to your personal circumstances. If you are in doubt, you should seek professional advice. It is important that you fully understand the risks involved before deciding to use the Services and that you have adequate financial resources to bear such risks and that you monitor your positions carefully. Cryptocurrency involves risk to your capital. You should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose, however you cannot lose more than the equity in your account.
By using our apps you acknowledge that various types of risks are involved, including but not limited to risks relating to the changes in the operating rules or other features, e.g. forks, and the fluctuation of the value of any supported cryptocurrencies, including the fiat currency it is pegged to, counterparty risks, including but not limited to the sustainability, insolvency, liquidation and bankruptcy of one of our partners and their partners, regulatory risks and uncertainties. Should any of the risks realise, you hereby understand and consent that you are solely liable for the consequences, and we shall not assume any liability nor obligations thereof.
Purecoin has performed and is constantly re-performing relevant due diligence on its partners and the financial, reputational and regulatory risks surrounding them. If it becomes known or Purecoin deems the counterparty risk, including any security risk to your supported cryptocurrencies, to be unacceptable, we will immediately terminate the partnership and/or the service, and inform you thereof in the Apps.
By using our apps you understand and agree that rewarding you with the interest is in our sole discretion, not an obligation, and it is not a guarantee that you will receive the reward by the due date. We have reserved the right to from time to time change the interest rate, which is shown to you in the Apps, and These terms without giving you a prior notice thereof. If that is the case, we will buy back the supported cryptocurrencies from you, in exchange for specified Fiat currencies, and the interest calculation shall be terminated as of that moment, and the interest shall be rewarded by the first day of the following month.
You should further ensure you are able to monitor positions on your account at all times, as you are solely responsible for this. We are not responsible for monitoring positions on your account.
It is possible that the market price could have changed between order placement and execution time, and therefore we cannot guarantee that the price requested will be the same as the price that the order is executed, the price you receive can be in your favor or against you.
In addition, there are risks associated with use of online deal execution and trading systems including, but not limited to, software and hardware failure and internet disconnection.
Since cryptoasset markets are decentralized and not regulated to the degree of investment services then customers using the services provided by Purecoin will not fully benefit from the protections available to clients receiving regulated investment services under the so-called MiFID regime. This also means that there is no central bank that can take corrective measure to protect the value of cryptoasset in a crisis or issue more currency.
Cryptoasset market is determined only by supply and demand and is often highly unpredictable and volatile. The price of a cryptoasset is usually not transparent and highly speculative and susceptible to market manipulation. In the worst case scenario the product could be rendered worthless.
It is important to make a distinction between indicative prices which are displayed on charts and dealable prices which are displayed in the Apps. Indicative quotes only give an indication of where the market is. Because the cryptoasset markets are decentralized, meaning it lacks a single central exchange where all transactions are conducted, each market maker may quote slightly different prices. Therefore, any prices displayed on any chart made available by us or by a third party will only reflect indicative prices and not necessarily actual dealing prices where trades can be executed.
Cryptoasset trading is prone to being misused for illegal activities due to the pseudonymity or even anonymity of transactions and investors would be adversely affected if law enforcement agencies investigate any alleged illicit activities.
Accordingly, cryptoassets should be seen as an asset class with extremely high risks and you should never invest money that you cannot afford to lose. Given the foregoing, cryptoasset are not appropriate for all investors. You should not deal in these products unless you have the necessary knowledge and expertise, you understand these products’ characteristics and your exposure to risk. You should also be satisfied that the product is suitable for you in light of your circumstances and financial position. In addition, use of our Services can never be considered a safe investment rather only an investment with a high risk of loss inherently associated with it. Furthermore, our own fee is added to online quotes, if applicable, which makes trading with the Apps even more volatile.
The risk of loss in trading cryptoasset can be substantial. You should, therefore, carefully consider whether such trading is suitable for you in light of your circumstances and financial resources. You should be aware that you may sustain a total loss of the money deposited.
Since blockchain is an independent public or private peer-to peer network and is not controlled in any way or manner by us, we shall not be responsible for any failure and/or mistake and/or error and/or breach which shall occur in blockchain or in any other networks in which the cryptoasset are being issued and/or traded. You will be bound and subject to any change and/or amendments in the blockchain system and subject to any applicable law which may apply to the blockchain. We make no representation or warranty of any kind, express or implied, statutory or otherwise, regarding the blockchain functionality nor for any breach of security in the blockchain.
Purecoin does not own or control the underlying software protocols which govern the operation of cryptoasset available for trading in the Apps. In general, the underlying protocols are open source and anyone can use, copy, modify, and distribute them. Purecoin is not responsible for operation of the underlying protocols and makes no guarantee of their functionality, security, or availability. The underlying protocols are subject to sudden changes in operating rules (so-called forks), and such events may materially affect the value, function, and/or even the name of the cryptoasset holds on your behalf. In the event of a fork, we may temporarily suspend operations (with or without advance notice to you) and that Purecoin may (a) configure or reconfigure its systems or (b) decide not to support (or cease supporting) the forked protocol entirely. Purecoin may, but is not obligated to do so, adjust your account in respect of a fork depending on the circumstances of each event attributable to any specific cryptoasset held by you.
We may elect to execute any order and/or hold any fiat money and cryptoasset via third parties. Such third parties are not banks that guarantee the deposits made to them. If any such third party loses any money, fails or goes out of business, there is no specific legal protection that covers you for losses arising from any funds or cryptoassets you may have held with such third party, even when such party is registered with a competent authority. Depending on the structure and security of the digital wallet, some may be vulnerable to hacks, resulting in the theft or loss of customer assets. Purecoin will not be responsible in the event of losses caused by those third parties.
If at any time any of the cryptoasset that forms the subject of your order is delisted and/or we no longer support the trading in such cryptoasset for any reason, then the applicable order will be immediately closed. If Purecoin is notified that a cryptoasset you hold is likely to be delisted and/or removed and/or canceled from any of the exchanges (some of them or all) and we believe that it shall not be able to trade in such cryptoasset, we shall make an effort to sell the cryptoasset on your behalf at such time and price, and in such manner, as it determines.
