Third-party exchange of Crypto-Assets
Blocktrade gives no guarantees with regards to the volume, price or other specifications on secondary exchanges and no warranties with regards to any exchange service providers or the price of Crypto-Assets on such exchanges.
c. Legal risks
Due to the legal uncertainty in different jurisdictions on digital-ledger technology, there is a risk that in some jurisdictions Crypto-Assets might be prohibited, considered as security or limited in any other way. Blocktrade gives no warranties or guarantees on the legal nature of Crypto-Assets. All Users shall bear their own legal and financial consequences of Crypto-Assets possibly being prohibited or considered as security or limited in any way in their respective jurisdiction. The legal ability of Blocktrade to provide Services in some jurisdictions may be eliminated by future regulation or legal actions. In that respect, we have total discretion to cease providing Services in that jurisdiction, or to adjust charging for Services in a way that complies with the regulation should that be possible and viable. Every User shall monitor at any time whether possession or disposal of Crypto-Assets is legal in their jurisdiction. By accepting these Terms every User agrees and warrants that they will not possess Crypto-Assets or use the Services should their use not be legal in the relevant jurisdiction.
d. Risks regarding the Ethereum protocol and blockchain technology
Any unexpected or unintended malfunction of those technologies or protocol can cause Crypto-Assets or Services to malfunction or function in a different manner. Blocktrade does not guarantee that in those cases Services shall operate without any disturbances, flaws, errors or defects and bugs that may intervene with the full functionality of Services. There are also potential risks with unfavourable regulation or governmental action in different jurisdictions that could in any way limit the use of the technologies and protocols.
The Ethereum source code (or any other blockchain technology) could be updated, amended, altered or modified from time to time by the developers and/or the community of Ethereum. Also, other codes and protocols in the blockchain community, used by the algorithms can be altered the same. As a result, any update, amendment, alteration or modification could lead to an unexpected or unintended outcome that adversely affects our Services. Any possible changes in the blockchain protocols could adversely impact the operation of our Services and could in the worst-case scenario, ruin the sustainability of the Services.
e. Risk of theft, hacking, mining attacks or loss
Hackers or other groups or organizations may attempt to interfere with the third-party wallets of Users, the Website, Services and/or Assets in any number of ways, including without limitation denial of service attacks, Sybil attacks, spoofing, smurfing, malware attacks, or consensus-based attacks. There are also other risks which could result in theft or loss of Assets such as unintentional security weaknesses or bugs on the Website, Platform and/or Apps, any advances in cryptography and other technical advances that could interfere with blockchain technology, Ethereum platform, Website, Services, Assets and other unexpected risks. There are also risks in the Ethereum network or any other network which the Services, Crypto-Assets and Assets interact with that can result in the loss of Assets
The Ethereum Platform and other blockchain networks are susceptible to mining attacks, including but not limited to double-spend attacks, majority mining power attacks, selfish-mining attacks, and race-condition attacks, that could present a risk to Assets.
Blocktrade makes no warranty that the Website, Apps, Platform, Services, Crypto-Assets will be uninterrupted, free of viruses or other harmful code, timely, secure, or error-free.

Crypto-Assets have special risks not generally shared with official currencies or goods or commodities in a market.
g. Cryptography risks
There are risks associated with cryptography, such as code cracking or technical advances such as the development of quantum computers, that could present risks to all cryptocurrencies including Crypto- Assets and Services. This could result in the theft, loss, disappearance, destruction or devaluation of Services and Crypto-Assets.
h. Development failure or abortion
Due to the technological complexity and difficulty that may be uncertain, unforeseeable and/or insurmountable, the development of the Services could fail or abort at any time for any reason.
i. Risk of loss of value and uninsured losses
The value of Crypto-Assets may fluctuate, and you may suffer loss in value either with using the Services and/or third-party markets or exchanges. Blocktrade does not hold any liability for such loses.
In addition to the risk of loss of value, Crypto-Assets are entirely uninsured and are unlike bank accounts or accounts at some other financial institutions. Blocktrade does not assure any compensation for possible damages.
j. Unanticipated risks
Crypto-Assets and blockchain technologies are new and untested technology and in addition to the risk outlined in these Terms, there are also unforeseeable risks that may materialize as unanticipated.
