For ease of reading, the masculine form refers to any gender.
- 1.1.1.The Client mandates the Service Provider to manage the cryptocurrencies deposited in his wallet with a third party crypto exchange platform (hereinafter the "Portfolio"). The Service Provider performs the services under this Agreement by means of artificial intelligence (“AI”) and, in principle, without human intervention (hereinafter the “Services”). Furthermore, the software helps to allocate the cryptocurrencies held in the wallet with a third party crypto exchange platform across a portfolio of crypto coins and track the cryptocurrencies over time. For the use of the Services, the Service Provider offers to open an account (hereinafter the “Account”).
- 2.1.2.During a set-up phase until 31 August 2023 (hereinafter the “Set-up Period”), the Service Provider reserves the right to perform the actions required for the provision of the Services set out in Section 1.1 of this Agreement only partially and not completely, in particular, but not exclusively, to give signals to buy and/or sell cryptocurrencies but not to make and execute any buy and/or sell decisions. The Client acknowledges and accepts that he has no claim against the Service Provider for the full provision of the Services during the Set-up Period. The Service Provider shall inform the Client by email and by publishing the information on its website as soon as additional actions are available for the provision of the Services set out in Section 1.1 of this Agreement.
- 3.1.3.Based on the information provided by the Client when opening an Account, the Service Provider creates a risk profile (“Client’s Risk Profile”). The Client’s Risk Profile is taken into account in the provision of the Services under this Agreement.
- 4.1.4.Before offering the Services, the Service Provider has carried out all usual initial checks and self-checks regarding the AI (including but not limited to regression testing, unit tests, integration tests, stress tests and user acceptance tests).
- 5.1.5.The Service Provider monitors the correct functioning of the AI on a regular basis by means of a monitoring dashboard.
- 6.1.6.If the Service Provider identifies a malfunction of the AI or another risk related to the AI, it shall take all necessary actions to remedy this malfunction and/or risk.
- 7.1.7.The Service Provider offers neither trade execution services nor custody services for cryptocurrencies under this Agreement.
- 1.2.1.In order to perform the Services, the Service Provider is authorized to act in the name of, for the account of and at the risk of the Client at the Service Provider’s own discretion within the framework of the provisions set out in this Agreement, including any future amendments.
- 2.2.2.In particular, but not exclusively, the Service Provider is authorized to make and execute, in the name of, for the account of and at the risk of the Client, purchase and/or sell decisions regarding the Client’s Portfolio.
Investment objective and other information provided by the Client
- 1.3.1.The Client confirms that the information provided when opening his Account, in particular with regard to the creation of the Client’s Risk Profile, is correct at the date of signing this Agreement. This includes, in particular, the Client's knowledge and investment experience, the Client’s trading patterns and the Client's risk appetite.
- 2.3.2.In addition, the Client confirms and acknowledges that, under normal circumstances, he does not need any cryptocurrencies deposited in the Portfolio to support himself and/or his dependents.
- 3.3.3.The Client undertakes to notify the Service Provider immediately of any changes to the information provided by him via his Account. The changes communicated by the Client via his Account shall replace, for the purposes of this Agreement, the information previously provided by the Client.
Investment Strategy Parameters
- 1.4.1.The investment strategy implemented by the AI is based on the Client's Risk Profile, which is created on the basis of the Client's knowledge and investment experience, the Client’s trading patterns and the Client’s risk appetite.
- 2.4.2.The Client must specify a maximum risk level for the Portfolio. The Client is provided with the definitions of the risk levels during the process of opening an Account.
Generally, the Client may choose between the following risk profiles: low risk low return (“LRLR”), medium risk medium return (“MRMR”) and high risk high return (“HRHR”). The higher the maximum risk level set by the Client, the greater the profit expectations usually are, but the higher the risk of loss.
The determination of a maximum risk level does not mean that the potential losses of the Portfolio are limited. However, the Service Provider sets limits, such as a “stop loss”, which does not limit the potential loss to a fixed level, but dynamically sets the stop loss levels based on the Client’s entry point.
If the maximum risk level determined by the Client is exceeded, the composition of the Portfolio will be adjusted to bring the risk of the Portfolio back to a level below the maximum risk level determined by the Client. The maximum risk level determined by the Client may therefore be temporarily exceeded until the composition of the Portfolio has been adjusted.
- 1.4.3.In carrying out this Agreement and within the limits set by the Client through the Client’s Risk Profile, the Service Provider reserves the right to limit the risk of the Portfolio to a level that the Service Provider considers appropriate in accordance with this Agreement. The Service Provider is not obliged to maintain the portfolio risk at the highest level accepted by the Client, nor at a level just below it. In the event of the death of the Client and in the absence of instructions from his heirs or their representative, the Service Provider is entitled to limit the level of risk of the Portfolio.
- 2.4.4.The Service Provider only provides Services regarding the cryptocurrencies mentioned in Annex I (hereinafter the “Cryptocurrencies”) including any future amendments.
- 3.4.5.The Service Provider reserves the right to, but is not obliged to, extend the Services to other cryptocurrencies. In the event that the Service Provider extends its Services to other cryptocurrencies, it shall amend Annex I accordingly. The Service Provider shall inform the Client of amendments to Annex I by email and by publishing the information on its website.
- 4.4.6.The Service Provider changes the composition of the Portfolio at regular intervals in line with market developments ("Reallocations"). The Service Provider takes into account various circumstances (e.g. frequent intervals, market events) when performing Reallocations. Which circumstances are taken into account and how frequently Reallocations are made depends on the Client’s Risk Profile. A Reallocation will also be made if the maximum risk level determined by the Client is reached or exceeded. The more frequently Reallocations are made, the better the Client's investment objective can be pursued. However, as Reallocations may incur transaction costs, frequent Reallocations may increase the costs borne by the Client. The Reallocation frequency does not determine the exact time of the next Reallocation. In particular, for technical reasons or to protect the interests of its Clients, the Service Provider may carry out the Reallocation a few days earlier or later than the date determined by the Reallocation frequency.
Instructions and Preferences of the Client
- 1.5.1.The Client may communicate preferences to the Service Provider regarding the execution of the Services under this Agreement. During the provision of the Services, the Client may only change these preferences by changing the Client’s Risk Profile. However, the change in the Client’s Risk Profile shall have no effect on the execution of decisions already taken at the time of the receipt of the change notice by the Service Provider.
- 1.6.1.The Client may communicate with the Service Provider only via his Account (all other communication channels are excluded) for the execution of this Agreement.
- 1.7.1.The Service Provider provides the Services under this Agreement using artificial intelligence, which enables it to make sale and/or purchase decisions on the Cryptocurrencies held in the Client’s Portfolio based on the Client's Risk Profile. The artificial intelligence used by the Service Provider consists of two main modules, a smart portfolio optimizer and an artificial intelligence core.
The Service Provider may define one or more strategies concerning the sale and purchase of the Cryptocurrencies, either for the entirety of clients, for specific client groups or only for certain clients.
The Service Provider uses quantitative (e.g., price changes) and other factors influencing the price of Cryptocurrencies for carrying out the Services. The Service Provider does not use qualitative methods like following the latest news and tweets on the Cryptocurrencies for carrying out the Services.
Consequently, it does not carry out any qualitative analysis of the Cryptocurrencies, does not take note of any analysis that third parties may carry out on the Cryptocurrencies (but reserves the right to use the results of third parties' analysis of the Cryptocurrencies in a quantitative manner) and does not follow the latest news on the Cryptocurrencies. The Service Provider refrains from making any subjective assessment of the development of the Cryptocurrencies.
- 1.7.2.The AI check on a regular basis, in accordance with the frequency of Reallocation, whether the Portfolio risk is in line with the Client’s Risk Profile.
- 2.7.3.The Service Provider shall ensure that the Client’s Portfolio is diversified in accordance with the Client's Risk Profile.

CryptoCurrency Risk Disclosure
This Cryptocurrency Risk Disclosure provides a description of certain risks associated with the Services and Cryptocurrencies. However, it DOES NOT DISCLOSE OR EXPLAIN ALL THE RISKS INVOLVED IN THE INVESTMENT IN CRYPTOCURRENCIES AND/OR THE USE OF THE SERVICES. There may be additional risks that are not foreseen or mentioned in the Service Providing Agreement or in this Cryptocurrencies Risk Disclosure.
THE SERVICE PROVIDER STRONGLY RECOMMENDS THAT THE CLIENT SEEKS PROFESSIONAL ADVICE BEFORE DECIDING TO USE THE SOFTWARE.
Incorporation by reference
- 1.All risk disclosures and similar disclaimers set out in the Terms and Conditions and/or the Service Providing Agreement are incorporated herein by reference.
- 2.Capitalized terms used in this Cryptocurrency Risk Disclosure and not otherwise defined shall have the meaning ascribed to them in the Service Providing Agreement and in the Terms and Conditions.
- 3.For ease of reading, the masculine form refers to any gender.
Risk profile of Cryptocurrencies
- 1.Various financial and nonfinancial rights, claims and/or assets, including rights and obligations not usually found in (traditional) financial markets instruments, e.g., equity and fixed income securities, may be granted by Cryptocurrencies. Clients intending to purchase Cryptocurrencies must carefully review the rights and obligations granted by the Cryptocurrencies before making any decisions.
- 2.Cryptocurrencies usually serve as means of payment. Therefore, the fair value of Cryptocurrencies may be very difficult to assess and may ultimately turn out to be much lower than expected.
- 3.The value of the Cryptocurrencies is primarily derived from the rights embodied therein. As the Client may not be able to exercise these rights, the Client may potentially derive very little benefits from the Cryptocurrencies as long as the Client holds such Cryptocurrencies through a centralized exchange. In particular, the Client may not be able to take advantage of opportunities, e.g. to redeem the Cryptocurrencies and/or to pay for products and/or services offered by the Issuer or third parties.
- 4.Furthermore, the technical functionalities of Cryptocurrencies (e.g., the possibility to transfer them, to create new Cryptocurrencies, the number of decimals up to which a Cryptocurrency may be traded, etc.) depend, inter alia, on the distributed ledger technology on which the cryptocurrency is based. A blockchain is essentially a digital ledger of transactions that is duplicated and distributed across the entire network of computer systems on the blockchain. The Client should review and ensure that he understands how the relevant Cryptocurrency and blockchain works before using the Services of the Service Provider.
- 5.There is no guarantee that the distributed ledger network on which the Cryptocurrency is based, are bug- free and will function in accordance with the Clients’ expectations.
Legal and regulatory uncertainty; Bankruptcy treatment
- 1.Cryptocurrencies have only existed for a few years and various regulatory bodies in Switzerland and worldwide have formed or are in the process of forming an opinion on necessary legal or regulatory measures in relation to Cryptocurrencies (e.g., regulation regarding money laundering, taxation, consumer protection, publicity requirements or capital controls, as well as the civil law characterization of Cryptocurrencies). Any forthcoming legal or regulatory measures may result in the illegality of Cryptocurrencies or the imposition of controls on the sale and/or purchase of Cryptocurrencies in (and thus illiquidity of) some or all of the Cryptocurrencies. In addition, control mechanisms may significantly increase transaction costs of Cryptocurrencies. By using the Services, the Client bears the risk of uncertainty regarding to the legal, regulatory and tax treatment of Cryptocurrencies.
Valuation issues; volatility; no or limited liquidity
- 1.The value of Cryptocurrencies may change significantly (even within a day) and the price movements of the Cryptocurrencies may be unpredictable.
- 2.While the volatility of the value of Cryptocurrencies is (perceived as) high, changes and advances in technology, fraud, theft and cyberattacks and regulatory changes, among others, may further increase volatility– and thus the potential for investment gains and losses. Additionally, Cryptocurrencies do not have the historical track record of other currencies or commodities, like gold, which could provide insight in whether current volatility levels are typical or atypical.
- 3.Investments in Cryptocurrencies are considered highly speculative investments. Cryptocurrencies are subject to high volatility, i.e. the price of Cryptocurrencies may fall as well as rise rapidly on any given day. The movements of Cryptocurrencies are unpredictable. The Client acknowledges that Cryptocurrencies are not supervised by authorities or institutions such as central banks and that, therefore, there is no authority or institution that can intervene to stabilize the value of Cryptocurrencies and/or prevent or mitigate irrational price movements. There is a risk of significant or total loss when purchasing or selling Cryptocurrencies. The Client acknowledges and agrees that he accesses and uses the Services at his own risk.
- 4.Investments in Cryptocurrencies are vulnerable to irrational bubbles or loss of confidence, that could cause demand to collapse relative to supply, e.g. due to unexpected changes imposed by the software developers or others, a government crackdown, the creation of superior competing alternative Cryptocurrencies, or a spiral of deflation or inflation. Trust might also collapse due to technical problems, for example if significant amounts of Cryptocurrencies are lost or stolen or if hackers or governments are able to prevent transactions from being settled.
- 5.The market for the relevant Cryptocurrencies may experience periods of lower liquidity or even periods of illiquidity. The prices for the purchase or sale Cryptocurrencies are determined by the centralized exchange the Client trades its Cryptocurrencies. The Service Provider has no influence on the pricing of Cryptocurrencies. In addition, lower liquidity may lead to very fast and hectic price movements, wider spreads and/or in higher rejection rates. The Client’s ability to buy or sell Cryptocurrencies and compare the Cryptocurrency prices may consequently be limited.
- 1.5.1.The functioning of the Cryptocurrencies is based on the distributed ledger technology, which is still at an early stage and best practices have yet to be established and implemented. It is likely that the distributed ledger technology changes significantly in the future. Technological advances in code breaking, cryptography or quantum computing etc. may pose a risk to the security of Cryptocurrencies. In addition, alternative technologies to certain cryptocurrencies could be established, causing the Cryptocurrencies to lose significance or become obsolete. If the Cryptocurrencies are traded on a distributed ledger that becomes less relevant or obsolete, this could have a negative impact on the price and the liquidity of the Cryptocurrencies.
- 2.5.2.The functioning of Cryptocurrencies is based on open-source software. The Service Provider does not employ or control the developers of such opensource software. Developers may introduce vulnerabilities and/or programming errors into the open-source software or may cease development of the open-source software (especially at a critical time, when a security update might be necessary). This could leave Cryptocurrencies exposed to vulnerabilities, programming errors and risks of fraud, theft and cyber-attacks.
- 3.5.3.In recent years, the number of transactions in distributed ledger networks has increased sharply. An increasing number of transactions combined with the inability to make changes to distributed ledger technology may result in a slower processing time of transactions and/or a significant increase in the transaction fees. This may result in an increase in the fees and costs.
- 4.5.4.As there is no central body (like a government authority or a central bank) overseeing the development of distributed ledger technology, the functioning of distributed ledger systems, and further improvements to that functioning (e.g. ability to increase the number of transactions, reduce processing time, lower transaction fees, introduce security updates), depend on the cooperation and consent of stakeholders, among others, developers improving the open-source software related to Cryptocurrencies or so called "miners" who facilitate the processing of transactions. Disagreements among these stakeholders can result in a hard fork. Hard forks may lead to the instability of a particular version of a relevant distributed ledger system. In addition, hard forks or the threat of a potential hard fork may prevent the establishment of Cryptocurrencies as a realizable alternative to traditional asset trading. Hard forks or the possibility of a hard fork may lead to an increase of the fees.
- 5.5.5.Due to Cryptocurrencies’ special characteristics (like transactions are usually non-reversible and are carried out largely anonymously; Cryptocurrencies exist only virtually on a computer network) Cryptocurrencies are an attractive target for fraud, theft and cyber-attacks. Various techniques have been developed (or vulnerabilities identified) to steal Cryptocurrencies or disrupt the underlying distributed ledger technology, including e.g. the "51% attack" where attackers take control over a relevant distributed ledger network by providing 51% of the computer power in the relevant distributed ledger network, or the "denial of service attack" where attackers try to make the distributed ledger network's resources unavailable by overwhelming it with service requests. The Client is directly exposed to fraud, theft and cyber-attacks as high profile losses resulting of such events may increase skepticism about the long-term future of Cryptocurrencies and may prevent the establishment of Cryptocurrencies as an accepted means of representing currencies, as well as increasing the volatility and illiquidity of the Cryptocurrencies.
- 6.5.6.Cryptocurrencies have no physical equivalent as they only exist virtually on a computer network. Establishing a value for Cryptocurrencies is difficult as the value depends on the expectation and confidence that Cryptocurrencies can be used for payment transactions in the future and/or as a medium of exchange. Among others, continued high volatility, changes and advances in technology, fraud, theft and cyber-attacks and regulatory changes may prevent Cryptocurrencies from establishing themselves as an accepted medium of exchange potentially rendering Cryptocurrencies worthless.
Privacy; Public nature of Distributed Ledgers
- 1.6.1.The Client should be aware that any transfer, sale and purchase of Cryptocurrencies may be recorded in a public distributed ledger and may therefore be visible to the public.
- 2.6.2.Distributed ledgers on which Cryptocurrencies are issued and/or recorded is neither the property of, nor under any control of the Service Provider. Information available on the distributed ledgers may be processed, exploited or misused by third parties, including in unforeseen ways.
