Risks

The trading of goods and products, real or virtual, as well as virtual currencies, involves significant risks. Prices can fluctuate on any given day. Due to such price fluctuations, you may increase or lose value in your assets at any given moment. Any currency, virtual or not, may be subject to large or sudden shifts in value and may even become worthless. There is an inherent risk that losses will occur as a result of buying, selling or trading anything on a market. You should be aware that the risk of loss in trading or holding Virtual Currencies can be substantial.

Virtual Currency trading also has special risks not generally shared with official currencies or goods or commodities in a market. Unlike most currencies, which are backed by governments or other legal entities, or by commodities such as gold or silver, Virtual Currency is a unique kind of currency, backed by technology and trust. There is no central bank or government regulator that can take corrective measures to protect the value of the Virtual Currency in a crisis, issue more currency, or balance the price fluctuations.

Instead, Virtual Currency is an autonomous and largely unregulated worldwide system of currency firms and individuals. Traders and market participants put their trust in a Virtual, decentralized and partially anonymous system that relies on peer-to-peer networking and cryptography to maintain its integrity. Thus, the value of Virtual Currency may be derived from the continued willingness of market participants to exchange Fiat Currency for Virtual Currency, which may result in the potential for permanent and total loss of value of a particular Virtual Currency should the market for that Virtual Currency disappear.

Virtual Currency trading may be susceptible to irrational (or rational) bubbles or loss of confidence, which could collapse relative to demand and supply. For example, confidence in Virtual Currency might collapse as a result of unexpected changes imposed by software developers or others, a government crackdown, the creation of superior competing alternative currencies, or a deflationary or inflationary spiral. Confidence might also collapse because of technical problems, for example, if the anonymity of the system is compromised, if money is lost or stolen, or if hackers or governments are able to prevent transactions from settling.

Transactions in the Virtual Currency may be irreversible, and, accordingly, losses due to fraudulent or accidental transactions may not be recoverable.

Due to the nature of Virtual Currency, any technological difficulties experienced by the Company could prevent the access or use of a Member’s Virtual Currency.

The abovementioned is not a closed list, there may be additional risks that we have not foreseen or identified in our Terms of Use. You should carefully assess whether your financial standing and tolerance for risk are suitable for buying, selling or trading Virtual Currency.

The Company uses banking providers in order to receive your funds and to make payments. Our banking providers do not transfer Virtual Currency, exchange Virtual Currency, or provide any services in connection with Virtual Currency.

Markets for Virtual Currency have varying degrees of liquidity. Some are quite liquid while others may be thinner or illiquid. The Company does not guarantee any profit from trading or any other activity associated with the Website.

IN LIGHT OF THE ABOVEMENTIONED RISKS, WHICH ARE NOT A COMPREHENSIVE LIST, YOU SHOULD CAREFULLY CONSIDER IF HOLDING VIRTUAL CURRENCY IS SUITABLE FOR YOU DEPENDING ON YOUR FINANCIAL CIRCUMSTANCES.

 

Reversals and Cancellations

You are not authorized to cancel, modify or reverse any transaction. Instacoins reserves the right to reject any purchases or sales of Virtual Currency if we suspect the transaction involves or could possibly be involved in criminal activity, is a breach of our prohibited activities rules or any known legal, governmental or regulatory laws or orders.

In the event that Instacoins cancels a transaction, we are not required to reprocess your exchange on exactly the same terms as the terminated purchase.
