YOU HEREBY ASSUME AND AGREE THAT WE AND OUR AFFILIATES WILL HAVE NO RESPONSIBILITY OR LIABILITY FOR THE RISKS SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION 12. YOU HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVE, RELEASE AND DISCHARGE ALL CLAIMS, WHETHER KNOWN OR UNKNOWN TO YOU, AGAINST US AND OUR AFFILIATES RELATED TO ANY OF THE RISKS SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION 12.
You understand and agree that the Portal and the Services, and your access and use thereof, are subject to a range of risks, including but not limited to the following:
12.1 Reliance on Blockchains. Although our Services may operate on one or more public blockchains, including the Solana Blockchain and/or the Ethereum Blockchain, Cega does not own or control such blockchains or the underlying infrastructure on which they operate. In general, the software underlying blockchain networks, including the Solana Blockchain and the Ethereum Blockchain, is open source, such that anyone can use, copy, modify, and distribute it. There exists no guarantee of the functionality, security, or availability of any blockchain or any associated infrastructure and sudden changes therein, including as a result of “forks,” may materially affect the operation of a blockchain on which we rely and thereby the Services or your access and use thereof.
12.2 Public Key Cryptography. Blockchains use public and private key cryptography and your use of the Services will require use of the private key associated with your wallet address on the relevant blockchain (for example, your Solana Address with respect to activity on the Solana Blockchain or your Ethereum Address with respect to activity on the Ethereum Blockchain). We do not have access to your private key(s) and you alone are responsible for securing your private key(s). Losing control of your private key(s) will permanently and irreversibly deny you access to Digital Assets stored in the relevant wallet address and that you may have transacted with in connection with your use of the Services or interaction with the Portal.
12.3 Smart Contract Risk. The Portal and the Services, and the structured product trading strategies enabled thereby, may employ or rely on self-executing smart contracts on the Solana Blockchain, the Ethereum Blockchain, or another relevant blockchain in order to facilitate certain functionality and transaction activity. Smart contracts are subject to various risks and may contain bugs or security vulnerabilities. These risks have the potential to adversely impact returns or to result in loss of Digital Assets contributed to structured products trading strategies enabled through the Services. While the Cega team works diligently to audit and test our contracts internally and in connection with external audit vendors, there can be no guarantee that any smart contracts employed or relied on in connection with the Portal and the Services are free of defects.
12.4 Financial Risk Associated with Digital Assets Generally. The risk of loss in trading Digital Assets, including through the trading strategies you may enter into through use of the Services or the Portal, can be substantial and may result in complete loss of your principal capital. Digital Assets are, by their nature, highly experimental, risky, and volatile. Transactions in Digital Assets, including transactions entered on the Solana Blockchain, the Ethereum Blockchain, or another relevant blockchain in connection with the Services, are irreversible, final and there are no refunds. Your access and use the Portal and the Services are at your own risk. You should, therefore, carefully consider whether such activity is suitable for you in light of your knowledge, understanding, circumstances and financial resources. In using the Portal and the Services, you will be solely responsible for making your own independent appraisal and investigations into the risks of a given trading strategy or transaction entered into using the Services and the underlying Digital Assets (including without limitation, the risks associated with your Solana Address, the Solana Blockchain, SOL, your Ethereum Address, the Ethereum Blockchain, ETH, and USDC).
12.5 Financial Risk Associated with Structured Product Trading Strategies. Your use of the Portal and the Services may enable you to enter into complex structured product trading strategies that incorporate or utilize derivatives, including exotic option based trading strategies. You should consider whether you have sufficient knowledge, market sophistication, professional advice, and experience to make an evaluation of the merits and risks of any transaction or trading strategy conducted in connection with the Services. Such trading strategies are not suitable for all users and carry their own significant risks in addition to the risks associated with trading Digital Assets generally. Such risks include but are not limited to:
12.5.1 Performance Risk. Entry into the structured product trading strategies enabled through the Services will subject you to risk of loss, which may be substantial. Changes in the price, level, or value of the Digital Assets underlying these trading strategies can be unpredictable, sudden and large, and may be influenced by many factors. Such changes may adversely impact the effectiveness of the relevant trading strategy and your returns. By entering into such trading strategies, you may sustain a loss of principal up to the entire amount of your principal capital. Furthermore, your losses may extend beyond your initial principal and may include, among other things, transaction fees paid on or to a relevant blockchain in connection with your use of the Portal and the Services. Although the Portal and the Services may display or describe the potential losses associated with a particular structured product trading strategy, such figures are provided solely for informational purposes and may not accurately reflect the total losses you may suffer in connection any trading strategy in connection with the Portal or the Services.
12.5.2 Opportunity Cost. The returns you receive by engaging in any trading strategy in connection with the Portal or the Services (which, for the avoidance of doubt, may amount to negative returns) may be less than the returns you could have received through other trading opportunities. In particular, there is no guarantee that the returns of any structured product trading strategy referencing Digital Assets enabled through use of the Services will exceed the returns that could have been obtained by holding such Digital Assets directly. Furthermore, depending on the structure of the relevant trading strategy, appreciation in value of the referenced Digital Assets may not result in corresponding or proportionate increases in the value or returns of such trading strategy.
12.5.3 Liquidity Risk. Entry into the structured product trading strategies enabled through the Services will subject you to liquidity risk. In particular, during the term of any structured product trading strategy enabled through the Services, you will not be able to withdraw or redeem any capital contributed to such trading strategy. Although your contribution to the smart contract vault for a particular structured product trading strategy may result in your receipt of corresponding “vault tokens,” there is no guarantee of any secondary market value or liquidity for such vault tokens.
12.5.4 Credit Risk. Entry into the structured product trading strategies enabled through the Services may entail or involve counterparty credit risk. In particular, you may be exposed to the counterparty credit risk of market makers taking the other side of the component derivatives transactions making up the structured product trading strategies enabled through the Services. Changes in the creditworthiness of, or default by, such counterparties could adversely impact the returns of such trading strategies and could result in loss of your principal capital.
12.6 Regulatory Uncertainty. The Portal and our Services are potentially exposed to legal and regulatory risk. The legal and regulatory treatment of Digital Assets and the Services is unsettled and rapidly changing. Legal and regulatory treatment varies between different jurisdictions. We, our provision of the Portal and the Services, and any Digital Assets referenced by or relevant thereto could be impacted by one or more regulatory inquiries or regulatory actions, which could impede or limit our ability to continue to make the Portal or the Services available or impact your returns and anticipated results from use of the Portal or the Services;
12.7 Compliance with Applicable Law. We must comply with Applicable Law, which may require us to, upon request by government agencies, take certain actions or provide information, which may not be in your best interests.
To the maximum extent permitted under Applicable Law, the Portal and the Services (and any of their content or functionality) provided by or on behalf of us are provided on an “AS IS” and “AS AVAILABLE” basis, and we expressly disclaim, and you hereby waive, any representations, conditions or warranties of any kind, whether express or implied, legal, statutory or otherwise, or arising from statute, otherwise in law, course of dealing, or usage of trade, including the implied or legal warranties and conditions of merchantability, merchantable quality, quality or fitness for a particular purpose, title, security, availability, reliability, accuracy, quiet enjoyment and non-infringement of third party rights. Without limiting the foregoing, we do not represent or warrant that the Portal or the Services (including any data relating thereto) will be uninterrupted, available at any particular time, or error-free. Further, we do not warrant that errors in the Portal or the Service are correctable or will be correctable
14. EXCLUSION OF CONSEQUENTIAL AND RELATED DAMAGES
In no event shall we (together with our Affiliates, including our and our Affiliates’ respective shareholders, members, directors, officers, employees, attorneys, agents, representatives, suppliers or contractors) be liable for any incidental, indirect, special, punitive, consequential or similar damages or liabilities whatsoever (including, without limitation, damages for loss of data, information, revenue, goodwill, profits or other business or financial benefit) arising out of or in connection with the Portal and the Services (and any of their content and functionality), any execution or settlement of a transaction, any performance or non-performance of the Services, your Digital Assets and any transactions or trading strategies therein, or any other product, service or other item provided by or on behalf of us, whether under contract, tort (including negligence), civil liability, statute, strict liability, breach of warranties, or under any other theory of liability, and whether or not we have been advised of, knew of or should have known of the possibility of such damages and notwithstanding any failure of the essential purpose of these Terms or any limited remedy hereunder.
15. GOVERNING LAW AND DISPUTE RESOLUTION
15.1 These Terms shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the Republic of Singapore (without reference to choice of law principles).
15.2 Any dispute arising out of or in connection with these Terms, including any question regarding its existence, validity or termination, shall be referred to and finally be resolved by arbitration in Singapore in accordance with the rules of the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (“SIAC”) for the time being in force, which rules are deemed to be incorporated by reference in this paragraph. The seat of the arbitration shall be Singapore. The tribunal shall consist of a sole arbitrator to be appointed by the Chairman of the SIAC. The language of the arbitration shall be English. This arbitration agreement shall be governed by the laws of the Republic of Singapore.
15.3 Each of the parties irrevocably submits to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of Singapore to support and assist the arbitration process pursuant to Section 15.2 of these Terms, including if necessary the grant of interlocutory relief pending the outcome of that process.
