Virtual assets transactions are highly risky and therefore not suitable for the vast majority of people. You acknowledge and understand that investments in virtual assets may result in partial or total loss of your investment and therefore you are advised to decide the amount of your investment on the basis of your loss-bearing capacity. You acknowledge and understand that accordingly you are a sophisticated and professional investor and if you are in any doubt, you have sought assistance from your own independent advisers (financial, tax, accounting or legal).
In addition, as the virtual assets market is relatively new, there may be unforeseen or unpredictable risks. You are advised to carefully consider and use clear judgment to assess your own financial position (with full appreciation and acceptance of the risks) before making any decisions to be involved in any virtual assets transaction. Any and all losses arising therefrom will be borne solely by you and we shall not be held liable in any manner whatsoever or howsoever caused.
