Presently the platform offers trading in Bitcoins, although the Crypsign Services may extend to other cryptocurrencies as well in the future (for which all of the terms contained herein will apply). Crypsign is neither the creator nor the administrator of any cryptocurrencies including Bitcoins, and is not in any way responsible for the global pricing of any cryptocurrency, the operation of any blockchain with respect to any cryptocurrency, or the mining process in relation to any cryptocurrency. It merely facilitates the trading in cryptocurrency by Users on the Crypsign Platform, and does not engage in such trading itself, or buy or sell any cryptocurrency for its own account or for its own benefit. Crypsign has no control over the generation, distribution, retention (except in its wallets), verification, termination, or market volatility of any cryptocurrencies. It merely acts as an intermediary for the trading in cryptocurrencies by User, and provides other ancillary services in relation thereto, which are more fully set out hereunder.

Cryptocurrencies like “Bitcoins” are merely software, as reflected in the relevant blockchain and in the public addresses of Users that creates a digital asset, which is not regulated by any central authority and has no independent existence.
The price or value of such cryptocurrency is not set or regulated by any central or governmental authorities.
Cryptocurrencies such as bitcoins do not even have an identified creator.
Crypsign only offers a platform to users for rendering the Crypsign Services set out herein, and performs only the role of an intermediary. Crypsign does not advise on the purchase or sale of any cryptocurrencies, does not guarantee returns from any investment or transactions, and does not itself buy or sell any of the cryptocurrencies that are made available for purchase or sale by Users on the Crypsign Platform.
Users are cautioned against speculative investments in cryptocurrencies, in the light of the above and are directed to avail these services, including purchase or sale of cryptocurrencies or investing therein, upon fully understanding the technology that has created cryptocurrencies and subject to the risks that arise from such an unregulated asset, which only exists in digital form.
ii. Risk Factors
Cryptocurrencies being a digital asset are subject to loss, harm or damage arising due to unforeseen circumstances inadvertent errors, offensive attacks, or closure of business;
These risks set out herein above include possibility of either servers on which cryptocurrencies are hosted going out of service; or the Crypsign servers becoming dysfunctional; disruption of services; inadvertent deletion of an asset class; offensive attacks including through hacking, virus, denial of service, or technology induced attacks on either the infrastructure hosting the cryptocurrencies or on the user’s personal devices.
Cryptocurrencies also run the risk of destruction through unforeseen circumstances i.e., technology induced or other forms of disruptions, which have not come to the fore till date.
Bitcoin is an as on date an autonomous and largely unregulated worldwide system of value transfer between individuals. It is not backed by any government or central bank backed currencies. India has issued cautions against dealing in the said cryptocurrency, as well as other cryptocurrencies and ‘virtual currencies’;
There is also the risk of loss of confidence in cryptocurrency trading, which could collapse demand relative to supply. For example, confidence might collapse in cryptocurrencies because of unexpected changes imposed by the software developers, the creation of superior competing alternatives, a deflationary or inflationary spiral, or due to governmental actions. Confidence might also collapse because of technical problems, for instance, if the anonymity of the system is compromised, or if any entity is able to prevent any transactions from settling;
Trading in cryptocurrencies requires some effort on the part of the User to ensure that his / her privacy is maintained. Cryptocurrency transactions are stored publicly and permanently on the network. This means that a User’s balance and transactions is viewable by the public.
However, the identity of the user behind a cryptocurrency address remains unknown until information is revealed during a purchase or in other circumstances.
Users have to therefore full care and precautions to adopt good practices in order to protect their own privacy. Additionally, all Users must also be cautious and aware of the following:
User should carefully assess whether their financial situation and tolerance for risk is suitable for buying, selling or trading cryptocurrencies;
Crypsign uses banking service providers only for the receipt of client money and making payments. The said banking service providers do not transfer cryptocurrencies, exchange cryptocurrencies, or provide any services in connection with cryptocurrencies;
Crypsign does not entertain Refund and Cancellation in any circumstances;
Crypsign Website does not store, send or receive cryptocurrencies. Cryptocurrencies exist only by virtue of the ownership record maintained in the blockchain network;
Any transfer of title in cryptocurrencies occurs within a decentralized nodal network, and not on the Crypsign Website.
Crypsign has taken all reasonable efforts to secure its infrastructure. Crypsign however has no control over the infrastructure in which cryptocurrencies are hosted outside of its own network or over the personal devices of users.
Cryptocurrencies being a digital asset are subject to known and unknown risks, malicious attacks and inadvertent losses. Such digital assets require very high security measures to be undertaken for protection at all levels, including by the User.
Cryptocurrencies are subject to high volatility and price fluctuations.

Cryptocurrencies being decentralized with no governmental or regulatory control are high risk investments and users are cautioned against indulging in speculative trading;
Engaging in transaction including buying, selling, receiving or retaining cryptocurrencies are subject to local laws of each jurisdiction.

In the event that the RBI or another regulatory authority so directs, intermediaries including Crypsign will be required to close all accounts on their platforms, and transactions pertaining to cryptocurrencies will become illegal and unenforceable. Such regulation may come into force at any time, and it is not possible to determine how cryptocurrencies will be treated under applicable Law in future. Users are hereby cautioned that any transactions in cryptocurrencies using the Crypsign Services are subject to the regulations, orders etc. that may be made, passed or implemented by Indian governmental, regulatory and judicial bodies.
