IMPORTANT NOTICE

PARTICIPATING IN THE COINCHANGE HIGH YIELD ACCOUNT MAY BE RESTRICTED BY LAW IN CERTAIN JURISDICTIONS AND USER ACTIVITIES MAY BE SUBJECT TO BANKING LAWS AND REGULATIONS, INVESTMENT LAWS AND REGULATIONS OR REVIEW OR REGULATION BY CERTAIN AUTHORITIES.  PRIOR TO ACCESSING OR USING THE COINCHANGE FINANCIAL HIGH YIELD ACCOUNT, YOU MUST INFORM YOURSELF OF AND OBSERVE ANY REGULATORY RESTRICTIONS APPLICABLE TO YOU. FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH SUCH RESTRICTIONS MAY CONSTITUTE A VIOLATION BY YOU OF THE LAWS AND REGULATIONS OF YOUR JURISDICTION.


Appointment.   You, being duly authorized, hereby appoint Coinchange to act as your asset manager with respect to your allocated assets or funds held in the specified account (the “Yield Account”) for the period and on the terms set forth in this Agreement, and Coinchange accepts such appointment.


Instruction.  You hereby instruct Coinchange to manage at your risk the assets, funds or other investments held in the Yield Account as Coinchange deems appropriate and without the need to discuss any transactions with you in advance.  The assets or funds shall be managed according to the product selected by you.  You authorize Coinchange to take all necessary actions to effect cryptocurrency-related transactions for the Yield Account.


Discretion.  Coinchange may at its sole and absolute discretion and at any time and from time to time buy, sell, or otherwise trade your assets or funds in the Yield Account.  This grant of discretion shall remain in full force and effect until Coinchange receives proper notice of termination.


Asset Deployment/Allocation Specification.   By funding the Yield Account in conformity with the below Specific Allocation Instructions provision, you (a) direct Coinchange to provide its decentralized finance (“DeFi”) services with respect to such funded assets and (b) confirm the amount to be deployed via the Yield Account. You confirm that you are fully informed about Coinchange’s DeFi services, its specifications and related risks.  By signing this Agreement, you, in view of your financial and personal circumstances, accept all the risks related to investing in cryptocurrencies via DeFi.


Specific Allocation Instructions.  You agree to give no specific allocation or deployment instructions other than the amount and currency of assets or funds deployed. The amount and currency of assets or funds deployed are specified in Schedule A of this Agreement and any subsequent additional Schedules.


Performance of Deployed Assets.  You hereby agree not to hold Coinchange liable for performance of deployed assets or funds. You further hereby agree not to hold Coinchange liable for incorrect or omitted third-party information, including but not limited to pricing on virtual currency exchanges. You accept that past performance is not an indication of future performance. You hereby acknowledge that no Coinchange owner, director, employee, representative, or agent is authorized to provide promises, assurances, or guarantees in writing or orally regarding performance of including but not limited to assets, strategy, or funds.


Distribution of Net Profit.  The net profit, or net of fee return on deployed assets, is determined by the profit value of a client’s deployed funds as result of Coinchange’s strategy minus any DeFi and Coinchange fees. The net profit will be distributed at Coinchange’s sole discretion over a period decided in Coinchange’s sole discretion. Coinchange also has the discretion to reinvest net profits into the DeFi service. You unconditionally authorize Coinchange to distribute net profit according to this discretion.


Non-Exclusive Relationship.    Nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed to limit or restrict Coinchange’s right, or the right of any of its officers, directors, or employees, to engage in business or to devote time and attention to the management or other aspects of any business, whether of a similar nature or dissimilar nature, or to render investment advisory services or services of any kind to any other corporation, firm, association, or individual. You hereby acknowledge and agree that Coinchange may act as an asset manager to other clients and receive fees for such services. The advice given and the actions taken with respect to such clients may differ from advice given, or the time and nature of action taken, with respect to your Yield Account. You further recognize that transactions in a specific asset may not be accomplished for all clients’ accounts at the same time or at the same price. You also acknowledge that in managing your account, Coinchange may purchase or sell assets, in which Coinchange, its officers, directors, or employees, directly or indirectly, have or may acquire a position or interest.


Risk Disclosure.   You hereby confirm that you understand the DeFi services and accept the inherent risk of DeFi generally and the DeFi services specifically. You hereby agree that no additional information or documentation regarding the DeFi services or the Yield Account will be provided. You further hereby agree that (a) you fully recognize the risks of investment in cryptocurrency and operate cautiously and(b) all investment operations conducted on Coinchange represent your true investment intentions.  By signing this Agreement, you unconditionally accept the potential risks and benefits of your investment decisions with Coinchange’s DeFi services and the Yield Account.


Risk Acknowledgement.   You hereby agree that Coinchange has not made, and is not making, any guarantees, including but not limited to a guarantee regarding diversification. You further understand that the value of investments made for you by Coinchange may go down as well as up and is not guaranteed in any way. You understand and hereby acknowledge that investment decisions made on behalf of you by Coinchange will not always be profitable due to various market, currency, economic, regulatory, legal, business, and unforeseeable risks. You hereby represent that no party to this Agreement has made any guarantee, either oral or written, that your investment objectives will be achieved by engaging Coinchange to provide the DeFi services or by using the Yield Account.


Confirmation of Client Information.   You certify that all information furnished to Coinchange, including but not limited to your level of financial experience and your ability to take on risk, is true and correct to the best of your knowledge. You understand that any false information provided negligently, willfully or intentionally may result in refusal of this application or immediate termination of your relationship with Coinchange.


Information to be Provided by Coinchange.   Coinchange will to the extent reasonably possible, as determined in Coinchange’s sole and absolute discretion, provide statements to you on a regular basis. Coinchange will also to the extent reasonably possible, as determined in Coinchange’s sole and absolute discretion, provide confirmation of transactions.


Liquidity, Marketability, and Distributed Ledger Technology Risks. You understand and accepts the risk and possibility of non-performance by third-parties including but not limited to custodians.

You acknowledge that you have sufficient financial knowledge and experience in Distributed Ledger Technology to understand the risks of investing in cryptocurrencies and DeFi.


Network Risks. Network delays, computer system failures and other force majeure may lead to delay, suspension or deviation of Coinchange’s execution of the DeFi service.  Coinchange will use commercially reasonable efforts, as determined in Coinchange’s sole and absolute discretion, to ensure but not promise that Coinchange’s service execution system runs stably and effectively. Coinchange does not take any responsibility if final execution of an investment on your behalf does not meet your expectations due to the above factors.
