BY REGISTERING FOR OR USING THE LCX SERVICE DESCRIBED BELOW, YOU (ON BEHALF OF YOURSELF OR THE BUSINESS YOU REPRESENT) AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT (INCLUDING ALL POLICIES INCORPORATED BY REFERENCE INTO THIS AGREEMENT), EACH AS MAY BE MODIFIED FROM TIME TO TIME. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, YOU MAY NOT USE OR ACCESS THE SERVICE.

 This Agreement is a legally binding contract between you and LCX AG, a company having its registered office at Herrengasse 6, in Vaduz, 9490 Liechtenstein (“LCX,” “Our,” “We”  “Us” or “the Company”) and applies to your use of LCX Services. 

This Agreement incorporates, and you hereby accept and agree to the applicable policies, notices, procedures, specifications, FAQs, guides and guidelines that are provided or made available to you, appear on our website or are referenced in this Agreement and which we may modify from time to time (collectively, the “Policies”).

You may not transfer or assign any rights or obligations you have under this Agreement without our prior written consent. You are not permitted to transfer your account to a third party.

LCX reserves the right to transfer or assign this Agreement or any right or obligation under this Agreement at any time without your consent. You hereby already consent to any such future transfer or assignment. This does not affect your rights to close your account.

Protecting your privacy is very important to us. Please review our Privacy Policy in order to better understand our commitment to maintaining your privacy, as well as our use and disclosure of your Information to which you are consenting.

 

Important information about Key Risks

This section of the Terms highlights some of the risks associated with transactions in connection with virtual currencies, tokens and/or other digital assets and other risks which LCX would like you to consider before accepting these Terms and using any part of the LCX Services. You are solely responsible for understanding and complying with any and all applicable laws, rules and regulations in connection with your acceptance of these Terms and your use of any part of the LCX Services, including but not limited to those related to taxes as well as reporting and disclosure obligations. To the best of the knowledge and belief of LCX, all risk factors which are material to you in making an informed judgement to accept these Terms and use any part of the LCX Services have been set out below. However, the list of risk factors set out below is only a non-exhaustive list for your consideration, and other risks, arising either now or in the future, could additionally be relevant and applicable to you in making an informed judgement to accept, or continue to accept, these Terms and/or use, or continue to use, the LCX Services.

 

Risk of Funds Not Being Immediately Available

LCX may close, suspend, or limit your access to any part of the LCX Services (as defined below), and/or restrict your access to the Available Balance (as defined below) of your LCX account (as defined below) for so long as reasonably required to protect against the risk of liability if you violate, breach or fail to comply with any part of these Terms and the Policies (as defined below). For the avoidance of doubt, LCX may also permanently close, suspend, or limit your access to the LCX Services if you violate, breach or fail to comply with any part of these Terms.

Please note that your LCX account may have two separate and distinct functionalities, which are the Available Balance functionality and the reserve functionality. Your ability to access the Available Balance for purposes of making transactions using the Available Balance of your LCX account will depend upon whether the Available Balance (which is the subject of such transaction) is sufficient. 

For the purposes of these Terms:

  1. a) The element of your LCX account which constitutes the Available Balance functionality is the operational part of your LCX account through which you have access to your Available Balance and which can be used for the execution of your transactions.  
  2. b) The element of your LCX account which constitutes the reserve functionality is known as the “reserve“. Your access to the reserve is restricted and you have no ability to use the Available Balance held in the reserve or to execute any transactions using the balance held in the reserve. Any balance held in the reserve may be marked or categorised, for example, as “pending”, “under review”, “risk reserve” or other similar indications or categorisations. The temporary holding of Available Balance in such reserve by LCX is related to LCX’s assessment and determination, at its sole and absolute discretion, of certain AML, CFT, fraud, financial and other regulatory risks.
  3. c)  If you are the user of the LCX Terminal services, you balances and funds held with third parties, such as cryptocurrency exchange platforms or custodian providers do not constitute and are not a part of your Available Balance with LCX.

  

Price Change Risk Associated with Using Virtual Currencies

Prices of virtual currencies, tokens and/or other digital assets fluctuate day by day or even hour by hour. The value of your Available Balance could surge or drop suddenly. Please note that there is a possibility that the price of virtual currencies, tokens and/or other digital assets could drop to zero. Prices of virtual currencies are prone to significant fluctuations, for example, due to announced proposed legislative acts, governmental restrictions, news related to cyber crimes or other factors causing potentially excessive market enthusiasm or disproportionate loss in confidence. Prices of virtual currencies, tokens and/or other digital assets can also be manipulated.

 

Liquidity Risk and the Nature of Virtual Currencies

Your LCX account and the Available Balance of your LCX account are not protected by the relevant deposit guarantee or investment indemnity schemes, either in Liechtenstein or in  any other country.  

Virtual currencies, tokens and/or other digital assets are not legal tender and are not backed by any government. Unlike fiat currencies, which are regulated and backed by local governments and central banks, virtual currencies, tokens and/or other digital assets are based only on technology and user consensus, which means that in cases of massive manipulations or market panic, central governments will not take any corrective actions or measures to achieve stability, maintain liquidity or protect their value. 

There is a possibility that executed orders with respect to certain transactions with virtual currencies, tokens and/or other digital assets cannot be settled or may be difficult to settle, or can be completed only at significantly adverse prices depending on the market situation and/or market volume. 

There is also no assurance that LCX will continue to accept or support certain types of digital assets or specific cryptocurrencies or that our commercial partners, vendors or services providers  will continue to permit or accept transactions with virtual currencies, tokens or digital assets in the future.

 

Blockchain Network Risk

Completion of certain transactions in connection with virtual currencies, tokens and/or other digital assets on blockchains can be deferred for a certain period of time until an adequate number of confirmations has been received. Blockchain transactions will not be reflected in your account until the adequate number of confirmations has been received and confirmed by LCX. There is a possibility that your blockchain-based transactions may be declined or remain unconfirmed for a period of time. Transactions in connection with virtual currencies, tokens and/or other digital assets may be irreversible, and, accordingly, potential losses due to fraudulent or accidental transactions may not be recoverable. Some blockchain transactions are deemed to be completed when recorded on a public ledger, which is not necessarily the date or time when you or another party initiated the transaction.

 

Risk of Using External Wallet Services and Exchange Services

In the case where you use an external cryptocurrency wallet or a cryptocurrency wallet which is established or maintained with an third party exchange, custodian or another service provider where you do not have secure possession of your private keys or credentials to access such cryptocurrency wallet, you may not be able to access your virtual currencies, tokens and/or other digital assets. LCX is under no obligation, and may not be able to assist you in such case.

 

Risk of Using LCX  Account 

While LCX is committed to high standards for maintaining the security of all private keys to the cryptocurrency wallets associated with LCX accounts, LCX is not responsible and is not liable for any loss of virtual currencies, tokens and/or other digital assets including the Accepted Assets resulting from any loss, theft, or inappropriate or unauthorised disclosure of and/or use of the private keys to the cryptocurrency wallet associated with your LCX account where such loss, theft, or inappropriate or unauthorised disclosure of and/or use is not within the control of LCX. LCX is also under no obligation to take any corrective action or measure in the event of any such loss, theft, or inappropriate or unauthorised disclosure of and/or use.

 

Force Majeure

There is a risk that your transactions carried our using LCX Services may be affected by system failures resulting from adverse events, natural disasters and other emergencies, as well as unforeseen significant changes in the external environment. With regards to opportunity loss (e.g. loss of opportunity to place a payment instruction, resulting in loss of profits which could have been obtained) due to occurrences such as emergency situations and Force Majeure events, LCX is under no obligation to take any corrective action or measure. 

 

Regulatory Uncertainty

The regulatory frameworks applicable to digital payments and transactions in connection with virtual currencies, tokens and/or other digital assets is still developing and evolving. It is possible that your transactions or funds are, or may be in the future, subject to various reporting, tax or other liabilities and obligations.  Legislative and regulatory changes or actions at the country, regional (for example, in the EU or an EEA) or international level may materially and adversely affect the use, transfer, exchange, and value of virtual currencies, tokens and/or other digital assets.

4. Your LCX Transaction

4.1. Authorization. You may initiate various transactions, orders or trades by connecting to our Services and making appropriate selections and entering relevant transactional details as well as validating  your transactional instructions through your preferred method of strong authentication, where applicable.The sole transmission to LCX of your transactional instructions in the above described manner shall constitute authorization of such instructions.

When authorizing a transaction in this manner you instruct LCX to execute the transactions immediately (unless otherwise stated) in accordance with your instructions and charge you any applicable fees. It should be noted that LCX is not responsible for transaction execution performed by third parties where you may have external accounts.

The validation of your instructions through the use of the Services shall have the same value as your original signature and shall have the same value in evidence as an original written document.

You expressly agree that LCX is, whenever useful or necessary, entitled to prove its allegations by any means legally admissible in commercial matters. Computerized records or other records effected by LCX constitute prima facie evidence of the communications between LCX and you and shall have the same value in evidence as an original written document.

The burden of proof that an executed transaction has not been authorized by you after the appropriate user authentication measures have been satisfactory completed lies with you. The recording of the use of Services proves that the transaction was authorized by you.

You represent and warrant that any information you provide through the Services, in connection with a transaction or otherwise, is accurate and complete.  

In the event that we do not detect a fraudulent use or misuse of your credentials and execute a transaction initiated through such credentials or send the transaction for execution to a third party service, we shall, except in the case of gross negligence or willful misconduct, be deemed to have validly executed your instructions. We will thus be released from our obligation to refund you the funds on the account which have been used in order to execute such transaction.

4.2. Restrictions. We may, at any time, refuse an order or a transaction submitted via the Services, or impose any other conditions or restrictions upon your use of the Services. The reasons for the refusal and the procedure for correcting any factual mistakes that led to the refusal will be notified to you at the latest by the end of the business day following the refusal. LCX will be deemed to have satisfied this obligation if it has sent the notification of refusal within the period of execution time regardless of the date of actual receipt by you of such notification. Any notification by LCX of a justified refusal of a transaction may result in you being charged a fee.

 

LCX may, without being obliged to do so, refuse to execute a transaction if:

      • the instruction contains any factual error, in particular, incomplete or imprecise transactional details;
      • you have breached any of your obligations towards LCX under these Terms or any other agreement entered into between you and LCX;
      • the transactional instruction does not meet the agreed form as set out in these Terms;
      • your funds are insufficient to execute the transaction in full;
      • the spending limits as may have been agreed upon between you and LCX have been reached;
      • the transaction cannot be executed in full;
      • the transactional instruction has been made by a person who has no power to operate the account;
      • LCX is legally or contractually obliged to freeze your account or block transactions;
      • LCX suspects that the security of Service is compromised, e.g. because of a problem or technical failure or because of hacking attacks;
      • LCX suspects fraud (for example where it has identified suspicious transaction(s)) or has received notification that an incident has occurred);
      • LCX believes that the execution of the transaction would be contrary to any national or foreign laws, regulations or decisions of authorities or would expose LCX to liability risk.

In the event of a transactional instructions that are beyond your account’s permissible use or applicable limits, LCX may request additional identifying information from you and must receive such information before processing the transaction. If you fail to provide this additional required information or documentation, the attempted transaction may be refused or suspended by LCX, without being obliged to do so.

4.3. Insufficient Customer Balance.  If you have insufficient funds on your account to complete a transaction (this also includes instances of insufficient balance with respect to the asset category specified), we may cancel the entire transaction or may fulfill a partial transaction using the amount of funds currently available in your account, less any fees.

4.4. Cancellations.  You may not revoke certain transactions once they have been received by LCX. Such transactions will be executed by LCX notwithstanding any subsequent revocation order by you.

4.6. Virtual currency transactions.  While a virtual currency transaction is pending confirmation by the applicable network, the virtual currency subject to such confirmation will be unavailable for use in connection with any other Services transaction

4.7. Cancellation of Transaction. If it can reasonably be assumed that there is an error in the asking price, such as a major discrepancy with market rates, the asking price may be invalidated and the transactions based on that asking price may be canceled by LCX, without obligation for LCX to do so. LCX also reserves the right to halt trading, without being obliged to do so. LCX may not be held liable for not having exercised such right.

4.8. Supported Tokens, Coins and Digital Assets. It is your sole responsibility to verify the types of digital assets LCX will accept. Any other non-supported tokens, coins, or digital assets sent to LCX may be lost, destroyed or not returned to you. Additionally, there may be fees charged if LCX attempts to retrieve the non-supported tokens, coins, or digital assets to return them to you. LCX shall, however, have no obligation to make such attempts. The sending, depositing, and returning of non-supported assets puts you at risk of loss of assets. LCX accepts no liability for non-supported tokens, coins, or digital assets sent to LCX.

4.9. Blockchain Modification, Disruption or Hard Fork. In the event of a change in the structure of a blockchain such as a hard fork or chain split, or in the event of an occurrence such as an airdrop, whether or not to take response measures and what measures to take will be at the discretion of LCX. LCX does not bear any liability in the event that you or a third party incur losses or damages as a result of the defects, alteration, or lack of measures taken by LCX or if LCX decides to cease handling of a virtual currency in whole or in part.

4.10. Unclaimed Property. If LCX is holding funds in your account, and we are unable to contact you and have no records of your use of the Services for a prolonged time, LCX will try to locate you at the address shown in our records or otherwise. If LCX is unable to locate you, you agree that LCX may report these funds to authorities and deliver any such funds to relevant authorities. LCX reserves the right to deduct fees from such unclaimed funds.

4.11. Any claim with respect to the unauthorized or defective execution of a transaction referred to in your transaction history or other reports or the non-execution of a  transaction must be submitted by you to LCX in writing within 30 days of the execution or non-execution. In the absence of any claim lodged before the expiration of the aforementioned period, you will be deemed to have authorized such transactions, which shall be considered as definitively accepted by you. 

4.12. As required by applicable regulations, LCX will notify you in the event of suspected or actual fraud or security threats via your registered e-mail, phone number or mobile app notification.

4.13. Intermediaries and third party providers. When intermediaries or other service providers are involved in the execution of a transaction, LCX shall under no circumstances be liable for actions taken by third parties or other intermediaries.

4.14. This Section specifically applies only when you use LCX Exchange Services to trade one form of virtual currency, token or a digital asset for another virtual currency  with a third party, that is not LCX. 

      • Hold on Customer Assets. When you open a trade order through the Services, the corresponding amount of your assets required to complete such order, including any applicable fees, will be held for purposes of completing the order and restricted from further activity via the Services unless the order is cancelled.
      • Settlement.  Subject to the Terms of this Agreement, LCX will settle completed trades on a spot basis. The assets receivable in connection with a completed trade will be settled into your corresponding LCX account. 
      • Independent relationship.  You acknowledge and agree that: LCX is not acting as your broker, intermediary, agent, or advisor or in any fiduciary capacity, and no communication or information provided to you by LCX shall be considered or construed as investment or financial advice.

      • Prices and Availability.  All prices reflect the exchange rates applicable to the purchase of virtual currency using the Legal Tender or alternative form of virtual currency identified in your order.  All virtual currency sales by us are subject to availability, and we reserve the right to discontinue the sale of a virtual currency without notice. 
      • Quotes.  Prior to completing your purchase or sale of virtual currency, we will show  the amount of virtual currency you intend to purchase or sell and the amount of virtual currency or other assets you will pay or receive in connection with the transaction.  You agree to comply with any terms and conditions provided within such notice in order to complete your transaction.
      • Payment Methods.  You may be able to purchase virtual currency from us using an external payment method that is accepted via the Services.  You represent and warrant that you are authorized to use your designated payment method for that purpose.  You authorize us, or our designated payment processor, to charge your designated payment method for the full amount of the order.  If the payment method you designate cannot be verified, is invalid or is otherwise not acceptable, your order may be suspended or cancelled automatically.
