Market prices for digital assets can be volatile and highly unpredictable. CoinDCX makes no representations or warranties regarding the future price of any digital asset since whether the market price of a digital asset will go up or down is speculation and not subject to an objective prediction. Users are advised to abstain from entering into trades on the basis of speculative information received from any third-party that is guaranteeing or making claims of certain and sure pay-offs in the market for digital assets.
The market for digital assets can at times be highly illiquid. This may result in a scarcity of persons who are willing to trade at the same time. Thinly traded or illiquid markets have a potential increased risk of loss because they can experience high volatility of prices and in such markets, market participants may find it impossible to liquidate market positions except at very unfavourable prices. There is no guarantee that the markets for any digital asset will be active and liquid or permit the User to establish or liquidate positions in the digital assets when desired or at favourable prices.
Users are required to make a margin deposit before trading derivatives of crypto assets.
When trading derivatives of crypto assets, the amount being traded may exceed the amount in the User’s margin deposit, which may lead to losses being incurred in excess of the amount in the customer’s margin deposit.
Tax treatment of the acquisition or disposal of such cryptocurrency or cryptographic assets might depend on whether they are classified as securities, assets, currency or otherwise. As the tax characterisation of the digital assets remains indeterminate, Users must seek their own tax advice in connection with the trading of digital assets and the services, which may result in adverse tax consequences and/or tax reporting requirements for the Users.
Regulation of cryptocurrencies and cryptocurrency exchanges is currently undeveloped or underdeveloped and may not rapidly evolve. Such regulation also varies significantly among jurisdictions, subject to significant uncertainty. Various legislative and executive bodies in countries around the world may in the future adopt laws, regulations, guidance, or other actions, which may severely impact the provision of the services by CoinDCX. Inability of, and/or failure by CoinDCX and its affiliates and/or the Users 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 against the User, including civil penalties and fines. CoinDCX shall not be responsible to the User for such or other consequences and/or damages.
New or changing laws and regulations or interpretations of existing laws and regulations may materially and adversely impact the value of the digital assets, the liquidity of the digital assets, and the ability of Users to access the interface.
Risk of Account Freeze
Risks Associated with Financing Activities
When a User has utilized financing for entering into a trade for the purchase or sale of a digital asset, they run the risk of losing their provided financing or being unable to repay such financing. Users should know all of the terms of any contracts they enter and how their trading strategies and other market and risk factors can affect their financing obligations.
