8.1. The Risks associated with the use of the Earn Wallet are outlined in these Terms. The User confirms that he/she has read and understood these risks and understands that he/she alone bears the risks and the responsibility to use the Earn Wallet notwithstanding the disclosure of these risks.
(i) Crypto Assets are relatively new products and technologies. In addition, a significant proportion of demand for Crypto Assets is generated by speculators seeking returns based on price volatility. As a result, Crypto Assets are highly susceptible to a wide range of external factors which may have a disproportionately negative impact on the value of such Crypto Assets as compared with traditional assets. This applies also to Earn Programs issuing Crypto Assets.
(ii) Crypto Assets are not legal tender, and are not backed by a central bank, government or, other legal entities. This may increase price volatility of such Crypto Assets and expose investors to a heightened risk of loss which may include the entire value of their investment in a Crypto Asset.
(iii) Legislative and regulatory changes or actions, both domestically and internationally, may adversely affect the use, transfer, exchange and value of Crypto Assets, including with respect to Technology Providers, Earn Programs, Earn Wallets.
(iv) Regulation of blockchain networks, Technology Providers, Earn Programs, Earn Wallets and/or other Platforms and/or Crypto Assets is nascent, but is likely to evolve significantly. The form of regulatory evolution is uncertain and may vary significantly across jurisdictions. New laws and regulations may inhibit the development and growth of blockchain networks, Technology Providers, Earn Programs, Earn Wallets and/or Platforms and the adoption and use of Crypto Assets which may have a material adverse impact on the value and liquidity of Crypto Assets and/or on the viability of Technology Providers, Earn Programs, Earn Wallets and/or Platforms.
(v) Blockchain networks underlying Crypto Assets may face governance issues and may “fork” (as described below under the heading “Risks associated with forking”) or be subject to governance problems or 51% attacks, and SMPL may not support the forked asset promptly or at all. The occurrence of a fork would result in multiple versions of the blockchain network running in parallel, but with each version of Crypto Asset lacking interchangeability which may negatively impact the value and liquidity of such Crypto Asset and/or of Earn Programs. Other risks associated with market manipulation or fraud related to crypto assets and blockchain. This includes but is not limited to pump and dump schemes, rug pulls, Ponzi schemes, and possibility of stablecoin de pegging.
(vi) Transactions in Crypto Assets are irreversible, and accordingly, losses due to fraudulent, hacked or accidental transactions will not be recoverable. This also occurs when your Crypto Assets are transferred to Earn Programs, Earn Wallets and/or Platforms.
(vii) Crypto Asset transactions shall be deemed to be made when recorded on a public ledger, which is not necessarily the date or time that you, or any other person, initiate the transaction.
(viii) Crypto Assets in a given address are controlled by the private key of the holder of the address. If the private key is compromised or lost, the Crypto Assets in that address may be stolen or lost and otherwise unrecoverable. This also applies when your Crypto Assets are transferred to Earn Programs, Earn Wallets and/or Platforms.
(ix) Crypto Assets, Earn Wallets and/or smart contracts of Earn Programs generally rely on source code which may contain flaws, bugs, defects or inconsistencies which could compromise the predictability, usability, functionality, stability and security of Crypto Assets, Earn Wallets and/or Earn Programs. In addition, source code modifications or updates may lead to unexpected or unintended outcomes which may adversely affect the utility or functionality of the Earn Wallet, Earn Programs or the Earn Assets.
(x) SMPL does not own or control the underlying software protocols of networks that govern the operation of Crypto Assets, the Earn Wallet or the Earn Programs. The underlying protocols are open source, and anyone can use, copy, modify, and distribute them.
SMPLis not responsible for the operation of the underlying network protocols of Earn Wallet and/or Earn Programs, and makes no guarantees regarding their security, functionality, or availability.
(xi) The nature of Crypto Assets, Earn Wallet and/or Earn Programs may lead to increased risk of fraud or cyberattack and may mean that technological difficulties experienced by Earn Program(s) may prevent access to, or use of, your Crypto Assets. Blockchain networks and/or the Earn Wallet and/or the Earn Programs may be the target of malicious attacks seeking to identify and exploit weaknesses in the software, including through the introduction of weaknesses and bugs into core infrastructure of the network and open source code which may result in the loss or theft of Crypto Assets.
(xii) The tax treatment of Crypto Assets and/or Earnings may be uncertain and may result in adverse tax consequences. The use of Crypto Assets and/or Earnings to make purchases may expose users to tax consequences that would not have resulted had their purchases been made in a fiat currency and the purchase and use of Crypto Assets and/or Earnings may have adverse tax consequences including withholding tax, income taxes and tax reporting requirements. Users must seek their own tax advice.
Technological Risks. The User acknowledges that Crypto Assets using blockchain-based solutions and/or Earn Wallet and/or Earn Program(s) networks and protocols may involve serious technological risks, including risks of hacks. SMPL has no control over, and makes no representations regarding the value of Crypto Assets based on blockchain-based solutions and/or Earn Program(s), their security, their underlying software or smart contracts and/or their networks or protocols.
Risks associated with forking: Crypto Assets using blockchain-based solutions are subject to changes in protocol rules, governance issues and forks may materially affect the value, function, or name of the Crypto Assets based on blockchain solutions. The User acknowledges and agrees (i) that SMPL is not responsible for operation of the underlying protocols or smart contracts and that SMPL makes no guarantee of their functionality, security, or availability; and (ii) if a fork occurs with respect to a Crypto Asset, SMPL may temporarily or permanently suspend its availability in the Earn Wallet, and SMPL may configure or reconfigure its services or decide not to support the forked protocol entirely;
Legal Risks: The regulatory status of the Crypto Assets using blockchain-based solutions and/or Earn Wallet and/or Earn Program(s) is currently ambiguous. It is possible that in the future, certain laws, regulations, policies or rules relating to the Crypto Assets using blockchain-based solutions or blockchain technology and/or Earn Wallet and/or Earn Program(s) and/or Technology Providers may directly or indirectly affect or restrict the provision of the Earn Wallet by SMPL. The most significant areas of legislation and regulation for SMPL refer especially, but not only, to financial laws, banking regulations, collective investment scheme regulations and/or data protection regulations in the event that significant legal risks occur SMPL will have the expressed right to transfer your account and/or Earn Program and/or Earn Wallet to any legal entity of its choice which will allow continued service and non-disruption to the Earn Program or your use of the Earn Wallet;
Reputational Risks: SMPL’s reputation is important for its ability to market its services and to secure new customers. SMPL’s success is largely attributable to its reputation as a leading and reliable provider of a broad range of products and services. Although SMPL closely monitors the quality of its services, the Earn Wallet and/or Earn Program(s) it gives access to, there can be no assurances that SMPL will be able to protect its business against damages to its reputation especially, but not only, vis-à-vis customers and potential customers. Failure to protect and build SMPL’s reputation or brand could have an adverse effect on SMPL’s business, operational results, financial condition and/or Earn Program(s) and the general performance of SMPL, the Earn Wallet and/or Earn Program(s);
Risks of Force Majeure event: SMPL shall not be liable for any delay, error, interruption or failure to perform any obligation and/or execution of orders, where the delay or failure is directly or indirectly resulting from any cause beyond our control, including but not limited to; (i) act of war or threat of war; or (ii) riots, civil strife, or terrorist activity; or (iii) industrial disputes, natural or nuclear disasters; or (iv) fire, airport closures, bad weather conditions; or (v) interruption or failure of a utility service including lack of electricity; or (vi) the acts of any local or national government such as an imposition of economic sanctions; or (vii) cyber-terrorism, cyber-attacks, hacking, bugs; or (viii) nuclear disaster or explosion; or (ix) any epidemic or pandemic; or (x) acts of god or any other natural disasters outside human control; or (xi) global communications and other network error which may impede or restrict exact processing or transfer of data; or (xii) instances where the possibility to carry out the Earn Wallet are materially and adversely affected under the Terms, even though all reasonable precautions, due care and reasonable alternative measures to avoid these instances have been taken to diminish the inability to perform such Earn Wallet;
Financial Risk: Whenever there is an activity involving potential Earnings, there is an inherent risk which arises from compounding products. The following risks, without limitation, need to be highlighted:
Cash flow risk: The risk that SMPL’s available funds will not be sufficient to meet its financial obligations;
Currency risk: The risk that arises from the change in price of Crypto Assets from one Crypto Asset to another Crypto Asset, particularly when there is a shortage or limited liquidity on any of the involved Crypto Asset;
Earning risk: Changes in earnings affect the financial position of SMPL and/or the User and how the value varies due to changes in earnings.
Company risk: The risk to each party of a contract that they will not live up to its contractual obligations;
Market risk: The risk of a User experiencing losses due to factors that affect the overall performance of the markets in which he or she is involved;
Economical risk: The risk that the smart contract or the network is exploited or controlled by some participants which execute it in a way which was not contemplated in the first place.
The materialization of any of these risks can result in the suspension of the provision of the Earn Wallet and/or the returning of the Crypto Assets to you.
Risks associated with Earn Programs: SMPL does not own or control any Earn Programs' wallets or smart contracts or underlying software through which blockchain networks are formed and Crypto Assets are created and transacted. In general, the underlying software for blockchain networks tends to be open source such that anyone can use, copy, modify, and distribute it. By transferring your Crypto Assets to the earn Wallet pursuant to these Terms, you understand and agree that SMPL is not responsible for the security and/or operation of the underlying software of the Earn Programs and networks that support Crypto Assets and that SMPL makes no guarantee of functionality, security, or availability of such software and networks and/or Crypto Assets;
Technological risk related to Earn Programs: Although SMPL takes precautionary measures to protect against cyber threats or hack when placing the Crypto Assets into Earn Programs, circumstances may arise where losses or damages incur since Earn Programs are based on smart contracts. Earn Programs may be hacked and/or controlled by hackers which may take control over Crypto Assets transferred to Earn Programs and/or be subject to economical risks or risk of control of some badly intentioned participants to the network. If this happens, Earn Programs will not be in a position to refund all the Users;
