Cryptocurrency Risks

You understand and agree that your access and use of the Site is subject to certain risks including without limitation:

The potential application of existing regulatory regimes governing blockchain technologies, cryptocurrencies is not fully developed and remains substantially uncertain in many respects. New regulations or policies may materially and adversely affect the utility of bitcoins.

Regulation of cryptographic assets is uncertain and is rapidly evolving. Such regulation may vary and may conflict among international, federal, state and local jurisdictions, and the potential applications of existing regulations remain subject to significant uncertainty in many respects.

In addition, various legislative and executive bodies in the United States and other countries may in the future adopt new laws, regulations, guidance or other actions (including applying existing laws and regulations in ways that are adverse), which may severely impact the ability to use bitcoin for various payment processing. Failure by us to comply with any laws, rules and regulations, some of which may not exist yet or are subject to interpretation and may be subject to change, could result in a variety of adverse consequences.

The further development and acceptance of blockchain networks, which are part of a new and rapidly changing industry are subject to a variety of factors that are difficult to evaluate.

The slowing or stopping of the development, general acceptance, adoption, and usage of blockchain networks and blockchain assets may deter or delay campaigns.

The application of blockchain technology is novel and untested and may contain inherent flaws or limitations.

Blockchain networks utilize code that is subject to change at any time. These changes may have unintended consequences and we may not be able to prevent these changes.

Cyber security threats could result in misappropriation, hacking, infection by malware or other damage to your donations or the blockchain network on which it is issued, which could adversely affect a donation.

Security breaches, computer malware and computer hacking attacks have been a prevalent concern since the launch of blockchain networks, particularly those with smart contract capability.
