Terms and Conditions

1 We are furnishing this section to provide you with some basic facts about purchasing Assets on Margin, and to alert you to the risks involved with Margin Trading. Trading through a Margin Account is highly risky and may result in the loss of funds greater than those that you have deposited into your account. In addition, it is important that you fully understand the risks involved in trading Assets on Margin.

2. When your purchase Assets, you may pay for the Assets in full or you may borrow all or part of the price from us. Where you choose to borrow Assets from us, you will open a Margin Account with us. The Assets purchased in full will for the Collateral for the loan to you. If Assets that make up the Collateral decline in value, so will the Collateral. As a result, we can take actions such as to sell the Collateral in any of your Accounts held with us or to issue a Margin Call in order to maintain the require Asset value of the Account.

3. You should understand that pursuant to this MLFA we generally do not issue Margin Calls and we will not credit your Account or increase your Margin to meet you margin deficiencies. We will instead generally liquidate positions in your account in order to satisfy Margin Requirements without prior notice to you and without an opportunity for you to choose the positions to be liquidated or the timing or the order of the liquidation.

4. You can lose more Assets than you have deposited in your Account. A decline in value in the value of Assets that are purchased on Margin may require you to provide additional Collaterals to avoid the forced sale (a “liquidation”) of those Margin purchased Assets or other Assets in your Account.

5. If the value of your Collateral falls below the Margin Requirements, or if we revise these requirements to be higher at any time, we can sell the Assets in your Account to cover the Margin deficiency. Where the liquidation is insufficient to cover such shortfall, your will be legally responsible for making up of such shortfalls.

6. We have no obligation to contact a User before a Margin Call, or a liquidation is valid. Thus, you should understand that you need keep yourself informed about preceding Margin Requirements and how Margins will affect you at any time a Margin Requirement changes against your favour. You should also ensure proper risk management of positions that are in line with your risk tolerance.

7. You are not entitled to choose which Assets are liquidated to meet a Margin Call. We have sole discretion and right to decide which positions to liquidate in order to protect our interest.

8. Margin Requirements can be amended and raised at any time at our sole discretion without written notice to you. These changes often take effect immediately and will affect your existing Margins. If your use of Margin is not within an amended or raised Margin Requirements, you can expect to be liquidated immediately without notice.

9. You are charged Interest in connection with borrowing Margins in order to maintain a short position. Interest rates paid to, or rates and fees collected from your in connection with borrowing or lending Assets are subject to frequent change without notice and will vary based on the nature of the Asset being sold short. You pay Interest on your Margin Loan Facility which we can amend at our sole discretion without prior notice to you. These Interest costs will reduce your return on investment.

10. You may borrow Margin to stake Assets. When you stake Assets, you may lose control over the Assets (such as to the network you have staked it to) including the ability to repay Margin used to the staked Assets. Loans may or may not be given depending on our analysis, You agree that we have no obligation to give you a loan whether you meet the requirements or not. In such a circumstance you are still obligated to repay interests for as long as these assets are no repaid. You should carefully consider the risks of staking Margin Assets.

11. Special Risks of Short Selling. There are additional risks associated with short selling Assets that may expose you to significant losses. We may close out your position by buying back and Asset if you do not maintain adequate Margin in tour Account. This may expose you to substantial losses if the price of the Asset is above the price at which you sold it short. Short selling carries unlimited market risk and could lead to extraordinary losses because you may have to purchase an Asset at a higher price than which you sold it for in order to cover a short position. There is no limit to how high the price of an Asset can go. When you sell an Asset short, we must lend you the Asset from our own inventory or from outsourced liquidity providers or liquidity within our marketplace provided by other Users. Borrowed Assets are subject to recall without notice. Asset lenders retain the right to recall their Assets at any time. We may buy-in Assets on your behalf, without notice to you, to cover short positions in the event the event we cannot borrow Assets or re-borrow Assets after a recall notice. You are liable for any losses or costs incurred in the event of a buy-in, including any associated Transactions commissions or fees.
