We recommend that you never share or disclose your account information with anyone, create complex and secure password, change your password from time to time, always log out when finished using the account.
- As a result of the decentralized and open source nature of virtual currencies it is possible that sudden, unexpected, or controversial changes (“ Forks") can be made to any Virtual Currency that may change the usability, functions, value or even name of a given Virtual Currency. Such Forks may result in multiple versions of a Virtual Currency and could lead to the dominance of one or more such versions of a Virtual Currency and the partial or total abandonment or loss of value of any other versions of such Virtual Currency.
- The Lender is under no obligation to support a Fork of a Virtual Currency that you hold in your account, whether or not any resulting version of such forked Virtual Currency is a dominant Virtual Currency or non-dominant Virtual Currency or holds value at or following such Fork.
- If the Lender opts, at its sole discretion, to support a Fork of a Virtual Currency, it will make a public announcement through the Site and/or by notifying Borrower's via email, and will bear no liability for any real or potential losses that may result based on the decision to support such Fork or the timing of implementation of support.
- If the Lender, at its sole discretion, does not opt to support a Fork of a given Virtual Currency, including the determination to support, continue to support, or cease to support any dominant Virtual Currency or non-dominant Virtual Currency, the Lender assumes no responsibility or liability whatsoever for any losses or other issues that might arise from an unsupported Fork of a Virtual Currency.
- Forks of virtual currencies can be frequent, contentious and unpredictable, and therefore cannot be consistently supported by the Lender. When keeping virtual currencies on the Platform in your account you should operate under the assumption that the Lender will never support any Fork of the supported Virtual Currency.
- Certain Virtual Currencies are built to operate on the Ethereum or other protocols or are distributed to holders of Ethereum or other protocols (often referred to as an “airdrop") without any action required by Borrower. As a general rule, the Lender does not support Forks or airdrops, but will notify the Borrowers if it intends to support a specific Fork, airdrop, or other distribution or creation of a Virtual Currency.
- Note that in the event of a Fork of a Virtual Currency, the Lender may be forced to suspend all activities relating to such Virtual Currency (including exchanging, depositing, and withdrawing) for an extended period of time until the Lender has determined at its sole discretion that such functionality can be restored. This downtime will likely occur with little to no warning, and during this period of downtime you will not be able to exchange, deposit, or withdraw the Virtual Currency subject to such Fork. The Lender assumes no responsibility or liability whatsoever for any losses or other issues that might arise from such situations.
