4.3. Based on the CTR Smart Contract and subject to CTR Smart Contract Implementations, a User may, through the use of a CTR Participation Interface access and use the following functions of the CTR Smart Contract:
  1. link such User’s Address (holding Tokens and/or for receipt of Staking Rewards) (“Linked Address”) to the CTR Smart Contract using the Third Party Integrated Applications made available on such CTR Participation Interface (for example, Ledger or MetaMask);
  2. select the number of Tokens at the Linked Address which such User would like to deploy for Staking and be rewarded Staking Rewards based on such number of Tokens deployed for Staking and the length of Staking;
  3. allow a User to claim (“User Claim Request”) such Staking Rewards whereupon such Staking Rewards will be transferred to the Linked Address of such User.

4.4. The Sites, which function as a Staking Interface, facilitates a User’s access to and usage of the CTR Smart Contract as described in Paragraph 4.3 by:
  1. communicating a User’s authentication and instruction to connect such Linked Page 9 Address to the CTR Smart Contract;
  2. communicating a User’s selection of Staked Tokens to the CTR Smart Contract;

  1. based on the CTR Smart Contract, in order to be eligible to receive the Staking Rewards you must maintain your Staked Tokens within the timeframe prescribed by the CTR Smart Contract (“Prescribed Timeframe”) and cannot initiate a release of such Staked Tokens from Staking during the Prescribed Timeframe;
  2. in case you initiate the User Claim Request before the end of the Prescribed Timeframe, the Company is entitled to, in its sole discretion, reject such User Claim Request;
  3. in case the Company elects to accept such User Claim Request which is submitted before the end of the Prescribed Timeframe, you are not entitled to any Staking Rewards to any other benefits from the Company;
  4. the Company may, in its sole discretion, stop providing any Service to you on any ground whatsoever.

Staking Rewards, if any, shall be subject to tax withholding and reporting as required by Applicable Law.

Such rates have no relationship to and may not be competitive with benchmark interest rates observed in the market for bank deposit accounts.

4.8. We may make available anticipated Staking Reward rates and payment schedules from time to time on or through the Website (“Anticipated Rates”). Anticipated Rates are forward-looking statements that reflect current expectations regarding future events, involve significant risks and uncertainties, should not be read as guarantees of future performance or results and will not necessarily be accurate indications of whether or not such performance or results will be achieved.

The Company shall not be liable for any losses caused by timing differences associated with the actual delivery of the Tokens.

ANNEX 1 – RISK FACTORS & DISCLAIMERS

You should carefully consider and evaluate each of the following risk factors and all other information contained in these Terms before deciding to use any of the Services. To the best of our knowledge and belief, the risk factors which are material to you in making an informed judgement to use the Services have been set out below.

RISKS RELATING TO THE SERVICES

We may experience system failures, unplanned interruptions in our network or services, hardware or software defects, security breaches or other causes that could adversely affect our infrastructure network, the Sites and the Services

We are unable to anticipate when there would be occurrences of Network Attacks & Vulnerabilities on the Sites, Third Party Integrated Applications, the CTR Smart Contract, or any technology (including but not limited to Staking and smart contract technology) or any other network on which the Services relies. Such events may include, for example, flaws in programming or source code leading to exploitation or abuse thereof. We may not be able to detect such Network Attacks & Vulnerabilities in a timely manner, and may not have sufficient resources to efficiently cope with multiple service incidents happening simultaneously or in rapid succession.

Our Services could be disrupted by numerous events, including natural disasters, equipment breakdown, network connectivity downtime, power losses, or even intentional disruptions of our Services, such as disruptions caused by software viruses or attacks by unauthorised users, some of which are beyond our control. Although we will take steps to guard against malicious attacks on our appliances and infrastructure, which are critical for the maintenance of the Sites and the Services, there can be no assurance that Network Attacks & Vulnerabilities will not be attempted in the future, and that any of our enhanced security measures will be effective. We may be prone to attacks on our infrastructure intended to steal information about technology, financial data or user information or take other actions that would be damaging to us and Users.

We are dependent in part on the location and data centre facilities of third parties

Our infrastructure network is in part established on servers which are owned or housed at the location facilities of third parties, and/or servers that it rents at data centre facilities of third parties. If we are unable to maintain such network on commercially reasonable terms or at all, we may be required to transfer our services to a new data centre facility, and may incur significant costs and possible service interruption in connection with the relocation. These facilities are also vulnerable to damage or interruption from, among others, natural disasters, arson, terrorist attacks, power losses, and telecommunication failures. Additionally, the third party providers of such facilities may suffer a breach of security as a result of third party action, employee error, malfeasance or otherwise, and a third party may obtain unauthorised access to the data in such servers. As techniques used to obtain unauthorised access to, or to sabotage systems change frequently and generally are not recognised until launched against a target, the Creator Chain Group and the providers of such facilities may be unable to anticipate these techniques or to implement adequate preventive measures.

Legality of the Services, Staking, CTR Smart Contract and/or Tokens may be subject to clarification, implementation or change

The Applicable Laws in relation to the Services, Staking, CTR Smart Contract and/or the Tokens in various jurisdictions may be uncertain and/or subject to clarification, implementation or change. In the event of such clarification, implementation or change, the availability of the Services, Staking, CTR Smart Contract and/or the Tokens (in connection with the Services) may be adversely affected, including but not limited to the suspension or deactivation of the Services or a prohibition against Staking and access to the CTR Smart Contract

Further, it is difficult to predict how or whether governments or regulatory authorities may clarify, implement or change any Applicable Laws affecting digital ledger technology and its applications, including the Services, Staking, CTR Smart Contract and Tokens. We may also have to cease operations in a jurisdiction that makes it illegal to operate in such jurisdiction, or make it commercially unviable or undesirable to obtain the necessary regulatory approval(s) to operate in such jurisdiction.

The Sites, CTR Smart Contract, and underlying networks in relation to the Tokens are exposed to risk of attacks

While we will take steps to ensure that Sites are secure, there is no assurance that the Sites, CTR Smart Contract and underlying networks in relation to the Tokens will not be subject to Network Attacks & Vulnerabilities. Such events may occur as a result of, for example, flaws in programming or source code leading to exploitation or abuse thereof. In such event(s), the Services may be disrupted and the Tokens may even be stolen or diverted to a different Address. Unless you specifically obtain private insurance to insure your Tokens, you may not have any recourse as a result of such loss of Tokens.

There may be unanticipated risks arising from the use of the Services

Staking and technologies involving proof-of-stake, smart contracts and other related distributed protocols are novel, experimental and speculative, and therefore there is significant uncertainty regarding the application of and viability of such technology. In addition to the risks included hereto, there are other risks associated with your use of the Services, including those that we cannot anticipate. Such risks may further materialise as unanticipated variations or combinations of the risks discussed hereto.

GENERAL RISKS RELATING TO STAKING AND CRYPTOGRAPHIC TOKENS

Understanding cryptographic token technology requires technical knowledge

Cryptographic tokens are based on complex often described in exceedingly technical language that may require a comprehensive understanding of applied cryptography and computer science in order to appreciate the inherent risks. The availability of the Services do not indicate approval or disapproval of the underlying technology regarding Staking, the CTR Smart Contract and/or the Tokens, and should not be used as a substitute for your own understanding of the risks specific to the Services, Staking, the CTR Smart Contract and/or the Tokens. We give you no undertaking or warranty as to the suitability of the Sites, Services, Staking, CTR Smart Contract and/or the Tokens under these Terms and assume no duty in our relations with you. By using the Services, you acknowledge and agree that you have a basic degree of understanding of the operation, functionality, usage, storage, transmission mechanisms, and other material characteristics of digital ledger and blockchain assets, cryptographic tokens including digital ledger and blockchain-based software systems, cryptographic token wallets or other related token storage mechanisms, digital ledger and blockchain technology, proof-of-stake mechanisms, Staking, and smart contract technologies.

None of the information available on the Sites or made available to you in relation to the use of Services constitutes advice

None of the information available on the Sites or made available to you in relation to the use of Services constitutes any advice, including but not limited to legal, tax, financial or trading advice. If you are in any doubt as to the action you should take, you should consult your legal, financial, tax or other professional advisors.

Digital Asset transfers may not be reversible

Transactions which have been signed by the transferor and verified on a digital ledger or blockchain network are generally immutable and effectively irreversible. In the event that you send Digital Assets to any other destination other than the intended Address, such Digital Assets may not be returned. None of the CTR Affiliates (including the Company) assumes any responsibility or makes any warranties or undertakings and shall have no obligation to you if any of the foregoing events occur, including but not limited to any responsibility to recover, or aid / assist in the recovery, of such Digital Assets.
