We also use our Services to compensate our team as Contributors!
  • Issuers other than Fairmint utilize Subscriptions to conduct their own Offerings on their own website or forum. Subscriptions help other Issuers simplify their Offering in a multitude of ways, providing tools to help streamline compliance needs. Subscriptions also provide several dashboards, interfaces, and features to help manage stakeholders, the cap-table, equity allocations, fundraising, options pools for Contributors, Smart Liquidity Pools, and other organizational management needs. 
    • Other Issuers are not affiliated with Fairmint in any way, and their Offerings are completely independent from Fairmint in all respects.
    • Fairmint never acts as a broker-dealer, investment advisor, funding portal, intermediary, or any other entity registered with U.S. regulatory agencies.

How do Accounts and Wallets Work? 👜

    • You must have the legal rights to use the Email and information that you provide, and you must provide your own identity and not that of another.
    • The only people who are authorized to create accounts on the Site are authorized representatives of Issuers, Contributors, and Prospective Investors with a substantial background in investments, financial markets, and early-stage business.
  • Your Account and Email may be affiliated with a digital wallet (a “Wallet”) intended for use in connection with transactions in virtual currencies, cryptographic assets, or other Digital Assets that leverage Blockchain (defined below) technology (each a “Digital Asset”). 
    • Blockchain” refers to a distributed ledger technology, maintained by a network of computers, that records all transactions of Digital Assets in theoretically unchangeable data packages known as blocks, each of which are timestamped to reference the previous block, so that the blocks are linked in a chain that evidences the entire history of transactions of the Digital Asset.
    • When you create a Wallet with Fairmint, a cryptographic private and public key pair is generated. The private and public key pair together evidence ownership/possession of a Wallet that enables you to send and receive Digital Assets via the relevant Blockchain network. The public key is visible to all participants in a Blockchain’s network. The private key must be used to transact the Digital Assets represented by the corresponding public key. Fairmint does not store your private key in our database. Fairmint utilizes third-parties (including Magic) and their own proprietary technology to encrypt your private key in a process designed to help ensure its security and confidentiality.
  • You agree to all responsibility and liability for the security of all Accounts, Emails, login links, two-factor authentication methods, Subscriptions, Wallets, Digital Assets, Private Key Files, and Smart Liquidity Pools, regardless of who is at fault.
    • You agree to comply with the procedures specified by Fairmint from time to time regarding obtaining and updating Emails and Accounts, as well as any procedures with respect to your Wallet or Digital Assets. 
    • Fairmint’s software may also offer two-factor authentication to assist if you are locked out of your account, and if you choose to participate, you may need to provide additional information.
    • You agree to ensure that you will use your best efforts to prevent any third-party from obtaining your Email, Account, login links, two-factor authentication methods, or other information, and you shall inform Fairmint immediately in writing of any actual or potential unauthorized access to any Account, Email, Wallet, Digital Asset, or other Service.
    • Accounts are subject to cancellation or suspension by Fairmint at any time for any reason or no reason, including upon the misuse of any and the reissuance or reactivation of Accounts. 
  • When you request to make a transfer of Digital Assets, in order to authorize such transfer, you will be required to either (1) verify your Account, or (2) make use of any other service relying on Magic’s wallet service implemented as pass-through (each of the foregoing, a “Transfer Authorization”). 
    • Fairmint will only initiate a transfer after receipt of the Transfer Authorization. Fairmint is entitled to rely on the Transfer Authorization and has no duty to inquire into or investigate the validity or accuracy of any Transfer Authorization, though it may, at its sole discretion, inquire into or investigate such Transfer Authorization. 
    • You will be solely responsible and liable for safeguarding your Wallet and Account. Fairmint will not be responsible if someone else accesses your Wallet, Account, or Digital Assets, including any unauthorized transactions.

Your Assumption of Risk. ⚠️

  • Blockchain Risks:
    • Any transaction in Digital Assets must be confirmed and recorded on a Blockchain associated with the relevant Digital Asset. 
    • Fairmint has no control over any Blockchain and therefore cannot and does not ensure that any transaction details you submit via our Services will be confirmed or accurate on the relevant Blockchain. We do not have the ability to facilitate, cancel, or modify any requests.

    • Fairmint makes no guarantee as to the functionality of any Blockchain’s decentralized governance, which could, among other things, lead to delays, conflicts of interest, or operational decisions that are unfavorable to certain owners of Digital Assets. You acknowledge and accept that the protocols governing the operation of a Blockchain may be subject to sudden changes in operating rules which may materially alter the Blockchain and affect the value and function of Accounts, Wallets, or Digital Assets.
    • You alone assume all risk, liability, and responsibility for fundamental advancements in cryptography which could render inoperative the current cryptography algorithms utilized by a Blockchain supporting a specific Digital Asset.
  • Wallet Risks:
    • You take responsibility for all activities that occur with your Wallet and accept all risks of any authorized or unauthorized access to your Wallet, Account, and Digital Assets, to the maximum extent permitted by law.
    • Fairmint is not a custodian of your Digital Assets or your Wallet. We only provide an interface to interact with your Digital Assets. Fairmint cannot assist you with recovering Digital Assets and may not be able to assist you with recovering access to your Wallet if it is compromised.
    • Fairmint makes no guarantees as to the security of Magic and is not liable for any hacks or attacks on Magic's systems, or any other third parties that we may incorporate or utilize.
    • Fairmint is not liable for any hacks or malicious attempts or phishing scams to obtain access to your Wallet via your security code, Account, Digital Assets, or any other point of access for your Wallet. You alone are responsible for ensuring that you do not provide your security code to any other person and or entity.
  • Other Risks:
    • Digital Assets are an emerging asset class. Except as otherwise set forth in writing here or pursuant to Offering documents, Fairmint makes no warranties, guarantees, assurances, or recommendations as to the markets or mechanisms in which Digital Assets are created, purchased, and traded.
    • The application of existing legal and regulatory requirements to Digital Assets and markets for Digital Assets is developing and evolving. Fairmint may make changes concerning the application of existing and new legal and regulatory requirements to any Services. Existing laws or regulations may change at any time and cause negative impact the Site, Services, Accounts, Wallets, Digital Assets, Subscriptions, Smart Liquidity Pools, or anything else found on or through Fairmint. 
    • Except as otherwise set forth in writing here or pursuant to Offering documents, there are no warranties or guarantees that a transfer, purchase, or sale initiated on the Services will successfully transfer title or right in any Digital Asset.
    • Fairmint is not currently registered or licensed with any federal or state regulatory agency and is not subject to the examination or reporting requirements of any such agencies.
    • Fairmint is not responsible for any illegal activity or use of Digital Assets contained in your Wallet or for any illegal transfers requested or authorized by you.
    • Digital Assets owned by Investors and Contributors are often subject to restrictions on resale and transfer. These restrictions, including any mechanisms used to enforce these restrictions, may cause unexpected loss in asset value, and lack of liquidity or market value. Digital Asset holders bear the full risk, responsibility, and liability that their assets will have any meaningful value at any time.
    • Smart Liquidity Pools are novel ideas and may be subject to bugs, hacks, malfunctions, losses in liquidity or value, disruptions, stoppages, incorrect or misleading inferences, and other issues that could impact the system or assets thereof. You bear full risk and liability for engaging with these innovative features and functionalities. Fairmint will never be liable for any losses, damages, or claims that arise as a result of any user’s exposure to Smart Liquidity Pools. 
    • Certain features, open-source documents, and other Services utilized by Fairmint are novel and have not been fully tested in court. You acknowledge this and accept all risk and liability in the event that any Services offered by Fairmint are deemed not in compliance with any laws or regulations. 
    • You should avoid accessing your Account from a public or shared computer so that others are not able to view or record your Account or other personal information.
    • The information and materials on the Site or offered through the Services may contain typographical errors or inaccuracies. Any dated information is published as of its date only, and Fairmint does not undertake any obligation or responsibility to update or amend any such information.
    • The securities offered on the Site are suitable only for prospective investors who are familiar with and willing to accept the high risks associated with private investments, including the risk of complete loss of your investment. Securities sold through the Site and Services are not publicly traded and, therefore, are illiquid. Depending on the type of Offering, securities will be subject to restrictions on resale or transfer including holding period requirements. Investing in private placements requires high risk tolerance, low liquidity need, and long-term commitments. Users must be able to afford to lose their entire investment. Investments and Digital Assets are not FDIC insured, may lose value, and are not guaranteed by any bank or other person.
    • The securities being offered have not been registered under the Securities Act, in reliance on the exemptions from registration described above, or under any state securities laws.  Users must read each Issuer’s Offering materials and transaction documents for more information and discuss any questions with each Issuer directly prior to investing. No assurance can be given that any Offering currently qualifies or will continue to qualify under one or more of such exemptions due to, among other things, the adequacy of disclosure and the manner of distribution, the existence of similar Offerings in the past or in the future, or a change of any securities law or regulation that has retroactive effect.  No governmental agency has reviewed the Offerings posted on this Site and no state or federal agency has passed upon either the adequacy of the disclosure contained herein or the fairness of the terms of any Offering. The exemptions relied upon for such Offerings are significantly dependent upon the accuracy of the representations of the Users to be made to the Site and Issuers on the Site in connection with an Offering. In the event that any such representations prove to be untrue, the registration exemptions relied upon by an Issuer in selling the securities might not be available and substantial liability to such Issuer would result under applicable securities laws for rescission or damages. These risks are non-exhaustive and are intended to highlight certain risks associated with investing in securities that are not registered with the SEC. WE STRONGLY ADVISE YOU TO CONSULT A LEGAL, TAX AND/OR FINANCIAL PROFESSIONAL BEFORE INVESTING, AND CAREFULLY REVIEW ALL THE SPECIFIC RISK DISCLOSURES PROVIDED AS PART OF ANY OFFERING MATERIALS AND ASK THE ISSUER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE OR REQUEST ADDITIONAL INFORMATION.
