Investing in digital assets encompasses distinct risks that may deviate from those associated with conventional markets and assets. The user acknowledges that their investment carries the potential for a complete loss.

GEMBlock takes the necessary precautions to mitigate risks that are within its control. However, any loss or damages incurred from risks that are beyond GEMBlock's control or cannot be attributed to any negligence on the part of GEMBlock will be the responsibility of the individual.

GEMBlock disclaims liability for anything other than intentional or grossly negligent actions, to the extent permitted by law. You affirm that you are aware of and comprehend the risks associated with investing in digital assets, and that you are willing and capable of assuming these risks.

When transmitting digital assets to GEMBlock's blockchain addresses, it is imperative to exclusively employ the addresses provided by GEMBlock for this specific purpose.

Purchasing GEMBlock NFTs and/or Tokens carries the risk of potential financial loss. Once tokens are purchased, refunds or exchanges are not possible. There is no guarantee that the promised benefits outlined in the whitepaper, associated with GEMBlock NFTs and/or Tokens or the project, will be fulfilled. By accepting these terms and conditions and investing in GEMBlock NFTs and/or Tokens, you relinquish any rights and acknowledge that you have no legal recourse or remedy against GEMBlock if the expected benefits or project outcomes are not realized.

If you have any doubts or are unwilling to accept the potential loss of funds invested in the acquisition of GEMBlock NFTs and/or Tokens, we highly recommend refraining from purchasing them. It is advisable to conduct thorough due diligence and research, consult with legal, financial, tax, and other industry professionals or experts before making any investments in GEMBlock NFTs and/or Tokens.

GEMBlock NFTs and/or Tokens do not represent shares or securities in any form and do not confer ownership or any other form of interest in GEMBlock GmbH. These tokens solely serve as a medium to access specific services on a platform that is currently in the process of being developed. It is important to note that there is no assurance of the platform's continued development.


5. No financial advice

The Available Information does not constitute business, legal, financial, or tax advice regarding GEMBlock, the NFTs and/or Tokens, or any related matters. It is recommended that you seek guidance from your own professional adviser in the areas of law, finance, tax, or other relevant fields regarding the Available Information. Additionally, it is important to be aware that purchasing NFTs and/or Tokens may involve assuming financial risk for an unspecified duration.


6. Legal Considerations

Due to the legal uncertainties surrounding distributed ledger technologies, businesses, activities, cryptocurrencies, and cryptocurrency-related businesses in various jurisdictions, GEMBlock has devoted considerable time and resources to carefully evaluate its business approach and geographical operations both presently and in the future. GEMBlock has collaborated with an international law firm to address Swiss legal matters but has not sought legal advice from any other countries. Consequently, it is plausible that the NFTs and/or Tokens described in the Whitepaper issued by GEMBlock may be classified as securities within your jurisdiction, or that GEMBlock's offer to sell the Tokens may be subject to regulation or prohibited in your jurisdiction. In either scenario, GEMBlock may be held accountable. GEMBlock assumes no responsibility or liability towards you in these or any other situations. It is strongly recommended that you seek independent legal counsel to ascertain the legality of your involvement in the sale and purchase of NFTs and/or Tokens within your jurisdiction.

The NFTs and/or Tokens are functional utility tokens specifically designed for use exclusively on the Ethereum Network. They are not considered securities. Once you make a purchase of NFTs and/or Tokens, it is important to note that refunds or exchanges are not possible. GEMBlock strongly advises against acquiring NFTs and/or Tokens for speculative investment purposes. It is important to understand that owning NFTs and/or Tokens does not grant any rights or entitlements, such as capital, management, voting, or similar privileges, in GEMBlock or any of its affiliates. NFTs and/or Tokens are sold as digital products, similar to downloadable software or digital music. GEMBlock does not recommend purchasing NFTs and/or Tokens unless you possess experience in cryptographic tokens, blockchain-based software, distributed ledger technology, and have sought independent professional advice. GEMBlock may choose to provide information in various languages. In the event of any conflict between the English version of the available information and a version in a foreign language, the English version will take precedence.


7. Regional restrictions

Individuals who are citizens, nationals, residents (for tax purposes or otherwise), of any jurisdiction that requires supervision, oversight, licensing, compliance, and/or approval from a regulatory authority, board, monetary authority, or securities authority, are prohibited from investing in NFTs and/or Tokens, possessing, distributing, or disclosing the Available Information, or engaging in activities related to the sale of NFTs and/or Tokens. This restriction also applies to any firm, company, partnership, trust, corporation, institution, government, state, agency, or other legal entity incorporated or existing under the laws of any Restricted Jurisdiction.

12. Risk factors

Prior to making an investment in NFTs and/or Tokens, it is crucial that you thoroughly evaluate and assess each of the risk factors stated in these Terms, along with any other relevant information. GEMBlock has made every effort to disclose all material risk factors that may influence your decision to invest in the NFTs and/or Tokens. However, if any of the aforementioned considerations, uncertainties, or material risks come to fruition, it could have a significant and adverse impact on GEMBlock's business, financial condition, results of operations, as well as the utilization and value of the NFTs and/or Tokens. Consequently, the trading price of the Tokens may decrease due to these considerations, uncertainties, or material risks, resulting in potential loss of all or a portion of your NFTs and/or Tokens or their economic value.

12.1 Risks Associated with Investing in NFTs/Tokens

An NFT and/or token is not a currency issued by any central bank, national, supranational, or quasi-national organization, nor does it hold the characteristics of a traditional commodity. GEMBlock does not bear responsibility for, nor actively monitor, the circulation and trading of NFTs and/or Tokens in any market. The trading of NFTs and/or Tokens relies solely on the consensus of their value among relevant market participants. There is no obligation for anyone, including purchasers, to acquire NFTs and/or Tokens from an NFT/token holder, and no guarantees are made regarding the liquidity or market price of NFTs and/or Tokens at any given time. Additionally, NFTs and/or Tokens cannot be resold to individuals who are citizens, nationals, residents (for tax purposes or otherwise), and/or green card holders of Restricted Jurisdictions, or to Restricted Persons, or to purchasers in any other jurisdiction where the purchase of NFTs and/or Tokens may violate applicable laws. Consequently, GEMBlock cannot assure the presence of demand or a market for the NFTs and/or Tokens, nor can it ensure that the purchase price will accurately reflect the market price of the NFTs and/or Tokens once they become available for trading on a cryptocurrency exchange or market. Potential future sales or issuances of GEMBlock NFTs and/or Tokens may have a significant and adverse impact on the market price of the GEMBlock NFTs and/or Tokens.

The price of the Tokens may be materially and adversely impacted by negative publicity. Negative publicity concerning GEMBlock, the progress of GEMBlock, the NFTs and/or Tokens, or key individuals associated with GEMBlock, as well as the regulation of distributed ledger technologies, cryptocurrencies, and/or crowdsales of NFTs and/or Tokens in any jurisdiction, can significantly and unfavorably influence market perception or the market price of the NFTs and/or Tokens, regardless of its justification. The success of the business platform is not guaranteed and will be pursued based on the available information.

The value and demand for NFTs and/or Tokens will largely rely on the performance of GEMBlock's ecosystem and the GEMBlock Network, which will be further enhanced according to the Roadmap by GEMBlock. Additionally, the continued active engagement of users and the success of planned business areas will play a crucial role. It should be noted that the success of GEMBlock's NFTs and/or Tokens and the ongoing traction of the developing GEMBlock Network are not guaranteed.

The value of NFTs and/or Tokens in trading can experience fluctuations. Crypto-Tokens are known to have relatively high volatility and can experience significant price fluctuations within short time frames. The demand and market price of NFTs and/or Tokens can also fluctuate rapidly and significantly due to various factors, some of which are beyond the control of GEMBlock.

Fluctuations in market valuations and token prices of companies operating in similar industries as GEMBlock, which may be traded on the same cryptocurrency exchanges or markets as the NFTs and/or Tokens;
Analysts' speculations, recommendations, perceptions, or estimates concerning the market price of NFTs and/or Tokens, as well as the financial and business performance of GEMBlock.
The effectiveness of GEMBlock's management in executing business and growth strategies, whether resulting in success or failure.
Changes in the personnel composition of GEMBlock, including both additions and departures of key individuals.
GEMBlock will be providing updates on major occurrences, including but not limited to partnerships, sponsorships, and new product advancements.
Volatility in the market prices and trading volumes of cryptocurrencies on cryptocurrency exchanges or markets;
Modifications in circumstances that impact the blockchain or financial technology sector, overall economic conditions, market sentiment, or other occurrences or influences; and/or
Innovations and technological advancements.

12.2 Risks Relating to GEMBlock and the GEMBlock Platform.

The ongoing development of the GEMBlock platform entails potential vulnerability to external factors. Any events or circumstances that negatively impact GEMBlock or its affiliates may likewise have an adverse effect on the GEMBlock Platform, which is currently undergoing further development, encompassing the development and organization of the GEMBlock Platform. These unfavorable consequences would consequently impact the functionality, liquidity, and trading value of the GEMBlock NFTs and/or Tokens.

In the event that GEMBlock or any of its affiliated entities encounter challenges in effectively executing their business operations during their development and growth, it could potentially hinder their capacity to develop, sustain, or manage the GEMBlock Platform, as well as impede their ability to create, organize, and license token functionalities, thereby having a substantial adverse effect.

The sectors of financial technology and cryptocurrency, in which GEMBlock operates, have witnessed substantial growth in recent years and are continuously evolving as a result of technological advancements, evolving business models, regulatory changes, and various other factors. Consequently, GEMBlock may encounter operational difficulties as it endeavors to adjust to these transformations. The long-term sustainability of the GEMBlock ecosystem relies on the ability of GEMBlock or its affiliated entities to efficiently handle operations, attract and retain competent personnel, and deliver sufficient training to its workforce.

As GEMBlock continues to develop, both GEMBlock and its affiliates will require the expansion and adaptation of their operational infrastructure. GEMBlock will partially rely on its blockchain-based software systems, cryptocurrency wallets, and other related mechanisms for token storage, as well as blockchain technology and smart contract technology. All of these systems, tools, and capabilities constitute a complex, expensive, and rapidly evolving technical infrastructure. To demonstrate their ability to effectively manage the technical support infrastructure for the GEMBlock Platform as it evolves, as well as the future functionality of NFTs and/or Tokens, GEMBlock and its affiliates will need to continuously upgrade and enhance their data systems, operational systems, procedures, and controls.

The implementation of these upgrades and enhancements will necessitate a dedication of resources and are expected to involve intricate processes that increasingly rely on third-party services hosted by GEMBlock and/or its affiliates, without direct control over them. In the event that GEMBlock and/or its affiliates are unable to promptly, efficiently, and cost-effectively adapt their systems and organizational structure to evolving circumstances, it could potentially have a negative impact on their business, financial standing, and/or operational outcomes.

In the event that the third parties upon which GEMBlock and/or its affiliates depend encounter a security breach or encounter any disruptions that impact the services utilized by GEMBlock and/or its affiliates, there is a risk that the integrity and availability of their internal information may be compromised. This could potentially lead to the loss of confidential or proprietary information and/or financial losses.

Any negative impact on the financial condition, operations, or resources of GEMBlock and its affiliates would directly hinder their ability to develop, maintain, and operate the GEMBlock Platform. It would also impede their ability to develop, structure, and license the anticipated Token functionality.

Any detrimental effect on the GEMBlock Platform or technology is anticipated to also result in a detrimental effect on the usefulness, marketability, and trading value of the GEMBlock NFTs and/or Tokens. GEMBlock may encounter instances of system malfunctions, unforeseen disruptions to its network or services, hardware or software faults, security breaches, or other factors that could have an adverse impact on GEMBlock's infrastructure network and/or the ongoing development of the GEMBlock Platform.

GEMBlock and/or its affiliates are unable to anticipate the timing of hacks, cyber-attacks, distributed denials of service, errors, vulnerabilities, or defects that may occur in the GEMBlock Platform under development, the smart contracts relied upon by GEMBlock and/or its affiliates or the GEMBlock Platform, or the Ethereum Chain or any other blockchain. These events may involve programming or source code errors that could be exploited or misused. GEMBlock and/or its affiliates may not have the ability to promptly detect such hacks, cyber-attacks, distributed denial of service errors, vulnerabilities, or defects, and may not possess sufficient resources to effectively manage multiple service incidents occurring simultaneously or in quick succession.

GEMBlock and its affiliates' network or services, including the underdeveloped GEMBlock platform and its potential Token functionality, may face disruptions caused by various factors. These factors include natural disasters, equipment failures, network connectivity issues, power outages, and intentional disruptions like software viruses or attacks by unauthorized users. Some of these events may be beyond the control of GEMBlock and its affiliates. While efforts are made to prevent cyber-attacks and ensure security, there is no guarantee that future attempts, such as distributed outages, will not occur or that the security measures implemented by GEMBlock and its affiliates will be fully effective. GEMBlock and its affiliates are susceptible to infrastructure attacks aiming to steal technology information, financial data, or user information, which could harm GEMBlock and the Token holders. Any significant breach in security measures or other disruptions that impact the usability, stability, and security of the developing GEMBlock Platform may have adverse effects on the utility, liquidity, and trading price of the Tokens.

In the future, GEMBlock and/or its affiliates may rely on third-party location and data center facilities to some extent. GEMBlock and/or its affiliates may establish their future infrastructure network by utilizing their own servers, placing them at third-party sites, or leasing servers at third-party data centers. If GEMBlock and/or its affiliates are unable to renew their data center leases on commercially reasonable terms or at all, they may be compelled to relocate their servers to a new data center, which could result in significant costs and potential service disruptions. These facilities are also vulnerable to various risks such as natural disasters, arson, terrorist attacks, power outages, and telecommunications failures. Furthermore, the third-party providers of these facilities may encounter security breaches caused by third parties, employee errors, misconduct, or other factors, potentially leading to unauthorized access to the data stored on these servers. GEMBlock and/or its affiliates, as well as the providers of these facilities, may not be able to predict these methods or implement appropriate preventive measures.

The operating performance, results of operations, and/or cash flows of GEMBlock and/or its affiliates may be negatively impacted by general global market and economic conditions. GEMBlock and/or its affiliates may continue to face the effects of general global economic and market conditions. The information technology industry as a whole has experienced slowdowns due to challenging economic conditions worldwide, which may persist. The business, operations, and financial condition of GEMBlock and/or its affiliates could be adversely affected by economic weakness, including a decline in revenues and operating cash flows, as well as difficulties in obtaining future equity and/or debt financing on reasonable terms. Moreover, in an economic downturn, GEMBlock and/or its affiliates may encounter the negative consequences of reduced trading and usage of the GEMBlock Platform, which is currently undergoing further development. This could potentially lead to delays or cancellations in the development, structuring, licensing, and/or launch of the anticipated token functionality.

The operations and expenses of GEMBlock and its affiliates may be negatively affected by economic conditions, which could also impact the suppliers relied upon for servers, bandwidth, location, and other services. Therefore, there is no guarantee that the current economic conditions or any deterioration in economic conditions or a prolonged or recurring recession will not have a significant adverse effect on GEMBlock's business, financial condition, and results of operations. Consequently, this could also impact the development, structure, licensing, and launch of NFT/Token features on the GEMBlock Platform. Any of these circumstances would correspondingly have a negative impact on the utility, liquidity, and trading price of the NFTs and tokens.

GEMBlock and its affiliates may be compelled to halt their operations in a jurisdiction where operating is deemed illegal or economically unfeasible, or where obtaining the necessary regulatory approval(s) to operate becomes undesirable. In such situations, the utility, liquidity, and trading price of the NFTs and tokens would be negatively impacted, and trading in NFTs and tokens may come to a halt.

GEMBlock and its affiliates may also be compelled to discontinue their operations in a jurisdiction where operating is deemed illegal or financially unfeasible, or where obtaining the necessary regulatory approval(s) to operate becomes undesirable. In such scenarios, the utility, liquidity, and trading price of the NFTs and tokens will be negatively impacted, and trading in NFTs and tokens may come to a halt.

12.3 NFTs and/or Tokens May Involve Unforeseen Risks

Cryptographic tokens such as the GEMBlock NFTs and/or Tokens are a relatively new and dynamic technology. In addition to the risks included in the discussion of risk factors above, there are other risks associated with the purchase, ownership and use of the NFTs and/or Tokens, including risks that GEMBlock and/or its affiliates cannot anticipate. Such risks may also arise as unforeseen variations or combinations of the risks described above.
