Crypto Assets

Keep in mind that the legal and regulatory landscape for crypto assets is continually evolving worldwide, which could significantly impact their legality, utility, rights, and overall value.

Conduct your due diligence and consider seeking advice from financial, legal, and tax professionals to fully understand the implications of holding and using a specific crypto asset.

Beyond the regulatory caveat, acquiring and holding crypto assets involves a range of other risks to be carefully considered, including the following:

  • Market Risk: Crypto assets are notoriously volatile. Their prices can swing dramatically in response to regulatory updates, shifts in market sentiment, and technological advancements.

  • Risk of Changes: Utilities and rights attached to any crypto asset may evolve at the sole discretion of their issuer. Therefore, users should not solely rely on current functionalities or promises of future utilities. Before making any investment or usage decisions, individuals are strongly advised to review the most recent white paper, official documentation, and any other relevant materials provided by the issuer. These documents contain critical information that can help in understanding the intended utility, rights, and potential risks associated with the crypto assets and their use.

  • Security Risk: Engaging with crypto assets opens up exposure to cyber threats, including hacking and phishing. The risk of losing access due to misplaced private keys is significant. Despite advancements in security, these risks cannot be fully eradicated. Additionally, the blockchain technology underpinning these assets carries its own set of technological vulnerabilities.

  • Liquidity Risk: Certain crypto assets may experience low trading volumes. This can make executing substantial transactions challenging without affecting market prices.

  • Operational Risk: The crypto ecosystem's infrastructure, including exchanges and wallet services, might encounter operational problems like outages or technical failures. Such issues can hinder transaction processes and limit access to assets.
