You acknowledge and agree that there are numerous risks associated with acquiring Artex Token, holding Artex Token, and using Artex Token for participation in the Artex platform. In the worst scenario, this could lead to the loss of all or part of Artex Token held. IF YOU DECIDE TO ACQUIRE ARTEX TOKEN OR PARTICIPATE IN THE ARTEX PLATFORM, YOU EXPRESSLY ACKNOWLEDGE, ACCEPT AND ASSUME THE FOLLOWING RISKS:
- Uncertain Regulations and Enforcement Actions
The regulatory status of the Artex platform, Artex Token and distributed ledger technology is unclear or unsettled in many jurisdictions. The regulation of digital assets has become a primary target of regulation in all major countries in the world. It is impossible to predict how, when or whether regulatory agencies may apply existing regulations or create new regulations with respect to such technology and its applications, including Artex Token and/or the Artex platform. Regulatory actions could negatively impact Artex Token and/or the Artex platform in various ways. The Company, the Distributor (or their respective affiliates) may cease operations in a jurisdiction in the event that regulatory actions, or changes to law or regulation, make it illegal to operate in such jurisdiction, or commercially undesirable to obtain the necessary regulatory approval(s) to operate in such jurisdiction. After consulting with a wide range of legal advisors to mitigate the legal risks as much as possible, the Company and Distributor have worked with the specialist blockchain department at Bayfront Law LLC and obtained a legal opinion on the token distribution, and will be conducting business in accordance with the prevailing market practice.
- Inadequate disclosure of information
As at the date hereof, the Artex platform is still under development and its design concepts, consensus mechanisms, algorithms, codes, and other technical details and parameters may be constantly and frequently updated and changed. Although this whitepaper contains the most current information relating to the Artex platform, it is not absolutely complete and may still be adjusted and updated by the Artex team from time to time. The Artex team has no ability and obligation to keep holders of Artex Token informed of every detail (including development progress and expected milestones) regarding the project to develop the Artex platform, hence insufficient information disclosure is inevitable and reasonable.
Various types of decentralised applications and networks are emerging at a rapid rate, and the industry is increasingly competitive. It is possible that alternative networks could be established that utilise the same or similar code and protocol underlying Artex Token and/or the Artex platform and attempt to re-create similar facilities. The Artex platform may be required to compete with these alternative networks, which could negatively impact Artex Token and/or the Artex platform.
- Failure to develop
There is the risk that the development of the Artex platform will not be executed or implemented as planned, for a variety of reasons, including without limitation the event of a decline in the prices of any digital asset, virtual currency or Artex Token, unforeseen technical difficulties, and shortage of development funds for activities.
- Security weaknesses
Hackers or other malicious groups or organisations may attempt to interfere with Artex Token and/or the Artex platform in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to, malware attacks, denial of service attacks, consensus-based attacks, Sybil attacks, smurfing and spoofing. Furthermore, there is a risk that a third party or a member of the Company, the Distributor or their respective affiliates may intentionally or unintentionally introduce weaknesses into the core infrastructure of Artex Token and/or the Artex platform, which could negatively affect Artex Token and/or the Artex platform.
Further, the future of cryptography and security innovations are highly unpredictable and advances in cryptography, or technical advances (including without limitation development of quantum computing), could present unknown risks to Artex Token and/or the Artex platform by rendering ineffective the cryptographic consensus mechanism that underpins that blockchain protocol.
- Other risks
In addition, the potential risks briefly mentioned above are not exhaustive and there are other risks (as more particularly set out in the Terms and Conditions) associated with your participation in the Artex platform, as well as acquisition of, holding and use of Artex Token, including those that the Company or the Distributor cannot anticipate. Such risks may further materialise as unanticipated variations or combinations of the aforementioned risks. You should conduct full due diligence on the Company, the Distributor, their respective affiliates, and the Artex team, as well as understand the overall framework, mission and vision for the Artex platform prior to participating in the same and/or acquiring Artex Token.
Limitation of Liability
Artex accepts no liability for any direct or indirect loss or damage, whether or not foreseeable, including any indirect, consequential or other damages arising from your use of the Artex Platform, the Services, or the websites or any information contained in it, to the maximum extent permissible by law.
You use the Artex Platform, the Services, and the websites at your own risk.
We accept no liability for any disruption or non-availability of the Artex Platform or the websites or the Services or any damage or interruptions resulting from external causes including, but not limited to, communications network failure, power failure, host equipment failure, IPS (internet service provider) equipment failure, traffic congestion on the Internet or on the website or a combination thereof, computer viruses, spyware, scareware or other malware that may affect your computer or other equipment, natural events, acts of war, legal restrictions and censorship.
Artex accepts no liability in respect of any loss or damage resulting from any use of the Artex Platform, the websites or the Services, or any content posted by third parties on or through the websites, or any interactions between users of the Artex Platform, the websites or the Services, whether online or offline.
