15 Token price may experience extreme volatility
15.1 Cryptographic Tokens or cryptocurrencies that possess value in public markets, such as BTC, have demonstrated extreme fluctuations in price over short periods of time on a regular basis. You must be prepared to accept similar fluctuations in Token value. Such fluctuations are due to market forces and represent changes in the balance of supply and demand. Handelion.io cannot and does not guarantee any market liquidity for Tokens. Additionally, due to different regulatory requirements in different jurisdictions, and the inability of citizens of certain countries to open accounts at exchanges located anywhere in the world, the liquidity of Tokens may be markedly different in different jurisdictions.
15.2 By participating in the Crowdfunding, making Swaps with Handelion.io, or receiving and holding Tokens, you acknowledge and agree that you fully understand that Tokens may experience volatility in pricing and liquidity, and that, to the extent permitted by applicable law, you agree that no other party (including, without limitation any Handelion Party) may be held liable for any Loss arising out of, or in any way connected your participation in the Crowdfunding, Swaps with Handelion.io, or receiving and holding Tokens.
16 Receiving Tokens has a number of risks
16.1 Tokens carry risks. Prior to receiving Tokens, you should carefully consider such risk and, to the extent necessary, consult with an appropriately qualified advisor. If any of the following risks are unacceptable to you, you should not accept Tokens. By participating in the Crowdfunding, making Swaps with Handelion.io, or receiving and holding Tokens, you acknowledge and agree that you understand the risks described below and that, to the extent permitted by applicable law, you agree that no other party (including, without limitation any Handelion Party) may be held liable for any Loss arising out of, or in any way connected with your participation in the Crowdfunding, Swaps with Handelion.io, or receiving and holding Tokens or such risk.
16.2 Dissolution of Handelion due to a diminishment in the value of other cryptocurrencies, cryptographic tokens, and blockchain¬based software systems. Potential Token Holders are using cryptographic tokens or cryptocurrencies to participate in the Crowdfunding, execute Swaps, or receive and hold Tokens. While some of these may have been relatively stable, it is possible that their values may drop significantly in the future, which may deprive Handelion of sufficient resources to continue to operate.
16.3 Regulatory action in one or more jurisdictions. Cryptocurrencies, cryptographic tokens, and blockchain¬based software systems have been the subject of regulatory scrutiny by various regulatory bodies in numerous jurisdictions. Handelion and Tokens could be impacted by one or more regulatory inquiries or regulatory actions, which could impede or limit the ability of Handelion.io to develop Handelion.
16.4 Insufficient interest in Handelion and HION. It is possible that Handelion or HION will not be used by a large number of individuals, businesses and other organisations and that there will be limited public interest in the creation and development of its functionalities. Such a lack of interest could impact the development of handelion. Handelion.io will contract with developers to help build Handelion, and is working with third ¬party developers around the world to create an interest in Handelion. However, Handelion.io cannot predict the success of these development efforts or the efforts of other third parties.
16.5 Handelion, as developed, will not meet Token holder expectations. Potential Token Holder acknowledges that Handelion is currently under development and may undergo significant changes before release. Potential Token Holders acknowledge that any expectations regarding the form and functionality of Handelion held by the Potential Token Holder may not be met upon its release for any number of reasons, including a change in the design and implementation plans and execution of the implementation of Handelion.
16.6 Handelion may never be completed or released. The Potential Token Holder understands, that while Handelion team will make reasonable efforts to complete Handelion, it is possible that an official completed version of Handelion may not be released and there may never be an operational Handelion.
16.7 Theft. Hackers or other groups or organisations may attempt to steal Tokens.
16.8 Ethereum mining attacks. The Potential Token Holder understands and accepts that, as with other cryptocurrencies, cryptographic tokens, and blockchain¬based software systems, the Ethereum blockchain used for Handelion Crowdfunding campaign is susceptible to mining attacks, including but not limited to double¬spend attacks, majority mining power attacks, “selfish¬mining” attacks, and race condition attacks. Any successful attacks present a risk to Handelion Crowdfunding campaign, expected proper execution and sequencing of Token transactions, and expected proper execution and sequencing of contract computations.
16.9 Weaknesses or exploitable breakthroughs in the field of cryptography. Cryptography is a rapidly developing field with advances in code cracking and technical advances, which could present a risk to Handelion Crowdfunding campaign and potentially result in the theft or loss of Tokens. To the extent possible Handelion.io intends to update the protocol underlying Handelion to account for any advances in cryptography and to incorporate additional security measures, but it cannot predict the future of cryptography or the success of any future security updates.
