Market Risks and Risks of Other Risks of Using the Service

The Service includes proprietary trading strategies for trading various cryptocurrencies. The following risks summarize certain risks applicable to the Service, cryptocurrencies, and the cryptocurrency market in general. The risk factors described herein are not comprehensive and other risks may negatively impact your use of the Service.

Cryptocurrency Market Risks. The price of a cryptocurrency may drop in reaction to various events and conditions. This type of risk is caused by external factors independent of a cryptocurrency’s particular underlying circumstances. For example, macroeconomic environment, unpredictable market sentiment, forecasted or unforeseen economic developments, interest rates, regulatory changes, and domestic or foreign political, demographic, or social events. If an Exchange Account has a high allocation in a particular cryptocurrency, it may negatively affect overall performance of the Exchange Account.

Strategy Risk. There is no guarantee that the trading strategies that comprise the Service will be successful. Due to changes in volatility and market patterns, the anticipated profitability of the trading strategies offered through the Service may change from time to time. Quantum may, but is not required to, make changes to the Service and algorithms at any time.

Technology Risk. It is possible that Quantum or the exchange providing the Exchange Account may experience computer equipment failure, loss of internet access, viruses, or other events that may impair access to Quantum’s Service and trading strategies.

Volatility Risk. Cryptocurrency markets are extremely volatile. The trading strategies provided through the Service may perform differently than expected in volatile markets. Although the algorithms comprising the service have been back tested, there is no guarantee the algorithms will continue to perform profitably or as expected.

Liquidity Risk. Cryptocurrency markets can be illiquid and volatile. As a result, the Service may be unable to operate as intended in certain markets or under certain conditions, such as if a cryptocurrency is suspended, illiquid, or experiencing an extreme loss of value.

Third-Party Risk. In addition to the exchanges, Quantum relies on third-parties to deliver the Service, which, if such services fail or are interrupted, will adversely impact Quantum’s ability to deliver the Service and could result in substantial losses or a total loss of the funds in Clients’ Exchange Accounts.

Exchange and Custody Risk. Quantum does not offer trading execution or custody services. Quantum provides trading strategies that me subscribed for using technology provided by third-party exchanges. Quantum’s offering of the Service is not in affiliate with or an endorsement of such exchanges or their practices.

In addition, the cryptocurrency exchanges and other trading venues are relatively new and, in most cases, largely unregulated. They may therefore (i) be more exposed to fraud and failure than regulated exchanges for securities, derivatives, and fiat currencies and (ii) become subject to rules and regulations that prohibit the exchanges from listing the cryptocurrencies held by a Client in the future. Much of the daily trading volume of cryptocurrency is conducted on poorly capitalized, unregulated, unaudited, and unaccountable exchanges located outside of the U.S. that often do not have, or have limited, listing requirements. Such exchanges may engage in unethical practices that could adversely impact cryptocurrency pricing, such as front-running, wash trading, and trading with insufficient funds. To the extent that the cryptocurrency exchanges or are involved in fraud or experience security failures or other operational issues, this could result in a reduction in cryptocurrency market prices and adversely affect a Client’s investment in cryptocurrencies.

Network and Protocol Risk. The protocols on which cryptocurrencies are based are generally open-source software. When a modification is introduced and a substantial majority of users consent to the modification, the change is implemented and the cryptocurrency’s protocol and the network remains uninterrupted. It is possible that these protocols and modifications have undiscovered flaws which could result in the loss of some or all cryptocurrencies held your Exchange Account. There may also be network attacks against these protocols which may result in the loss of some or all cryptocurrencies held by your Exchange Account. Quantum does not guarantee the reliability or security of cryptocurrencies traded using the Service.

Hackers or other malicious groups or organizations may attempt to interfere with cryptocurrencies and networks in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to, malware attacks, denial of service attacks, consensus-based attacks, Sybil attacks, smurfing, and spoofing. Furthermore, because a cryptocurrency network is based on open-source software, there is a risk that a third party or a member of the development team of a particular cryptocurrency may intentionally or unintentionally introduce weaknesses into the core infrastructure of the cryptocurrency network, which could negatively affect the network and the value of the cryptocurrency.

Delisting Risk. The companies and individuals promoting, developing, or providing exchange services for cryptocurrencies may be subject to regulatory action. As such, exchanges may choose or be required to delist a cryptocurrency suddenly and without warning. In the event that the Client owns a cryptocurrency that is delisted, the Client may be unable to close a position in such cryptocurrency indefinitely or without transferring it to a different exchange on which the Service is not provided.

Dissolution of Network or Cryptocurrency Sponsor. It is possible that, due to any number of reasons, including, but not limited to, an unfavorable fluctuation in the value of a cryptocurrency (or other cryptographic and fiat currencies), decrease in a cryptocurrency’s utility, the failure of commercial relationships, the failure of the cryptocurrency sponsor or intellectual property ownership challenges, the cryptocurrency’s network may no longer be viable to operate. The dissolution of a cryptocurrency’s network or a sponsor (if applicable) may suddenly and adversely impact such cryptocurrency’s value.

Instability Risk. Cryptocurrencies are novel and speculative assets, and investments in them entail a high degree of risk. Several factors may affect the price of the cryptocurrencies, including, without limitation: (i) total cryptocurrencies in existence; (ii) global cryptocurrency supply and demand; (iii) expectations with respect to the rate of inflation of fiat currencies; (iv) currency- and cryptocurrency exchange rates; (v) interest rates; (vi) fiat currency withdrawal and deposit policies of the cryptocurrency exchanges; (vii) trade volume and liquidity on cryptocurrency exchanges; (viii) interruptions, suspensions, or terminations of major cryptocurrency exchanges; (ix) cyber theft of cryptocurrency from online cryptocurrency wallet providers, or news of such theft from such providers, or theft from individual cryptocurrency wallets; (x) investment and trading activities of hedge funds and other large cryptocurrency investors; (xi) sovereign monetary policies, trade restrictions, and inflation controls; (xii) regulatory measures that affect the usability of cryptocurrencies as a form of legal tender and/or otherwise restrict or facilitate cryptocurrency purchases, sales, or holdings; (xiii) availability and popularity of businesses that provide cryptocurrency-related services; (xiv) development and maintenance of open-source software protocols for cryptocurrency networks, applications or platforms; (xv) increased competition from other payment services; and (xvi) domestic and foreign political, economic, and financial events and/or uncertainty. If cryptocurrency markets continue to be subject to high volatility, Clients may experience losses based on their investments. Even if Clients are able to hold their cryptocurrencies for long, potentially indefinite periods, their cryptocurrencies may never generate a profit. Additionally, Clients should be aware that there is no assurance that the cryptocurrencies will maintain their long-term value in terms of future purchasing power.

Service Permissibility Risk. There is no guarantee that exchanges will permit the use of API keys or Quantum to provide its service to Clients. If Quantum is prohibited from offering its Service for any reason, Clients and the value of their Exchange Accounts may be adversely impacted.

High-Frequency Trading Risk. The Service implements high-frequency trading strategies, which may result in significant trading fees to the Client beyond those that would be incurred using buy-and hold or other investment strategies. The fees incurred by using the Service may reduce the profitability of the Service.

Regulatory Risks. Regulatory changes may affect the value of cryptocurrencies or Quantum’s ability to offer the Service. Regulation of crypto assets in the U.S. and in foreign jurisdictions is in its early stages of development and is subject to unpredictable changes which may have an adverse impact on the cryptocurrencies traded using the Service, the exchanges on which the Service can be offered, or Quantum’s offering of the Service in general. Such regulatory changes or actions may adversely impact the profitability of the Service or Quantum’s ability to offer the Service.

Cybersecurity Risk. Quantum and its service providers are subject to risks associated with a breach in cybersecurity, including unauthorized access to systems, networks or devices (such as through “hacking” activity); infection from computer viruses or other malicious software code; and attacks that shut down, disable, slow or otherwise disrupt operations, business processes or website access or functionality, may occur. In addition, internal incidents can occur, such as the inadvertent release of confidential information (possibly resulting in the violation of applicable privacy laws). A cybersecurity breach could result in the loss or theft of Client data, the inability to access electronic systems (“denial of services”), loss or theft of proprietary information or corporate data, physical damage to a computer or network system or costs associated with system repairs. Such incidents could cause the Quantum or other service providers to incur regulatory penalties, reputational damage, additional compliance costs or financial loss. Additionally, if Quantum or its service providers are hacked, Clients may be subject to fraud, spoofing, and other cyber tactics to gain control over Clients Exchange Accounts. Clients should be extremely cautious when communicating electronically with Quantum and should never provide Quantum or its affiliate with credentials to its Exchange Account, and such information will never be requested.
