BITTRADE CAPITALS may implement controls to restrict access to the Services from any jurisdiction prohibited pursuant to this Section 2.2. You will comply with this Section 2.2, even if BITTRADE CAPITALS’s methods to prevent use of the Services are not effective or can be bypassed.
Unless BITTRADE CAPITALS has provided prior, written approval to use your account for trading on behalf of a corporation or other legal entity (an “Enterprise User”), you will use the Services and your BITTRADE CAPITALS Account (as defined below) only for your own account and not on behalf of, or for the account of, any third party. If BITTRADE CAPITALS has approved your account for trading on behalf of an Enterprise User, you will use the Services and your BITTRADE CAPITALS Account solely for the account of the specified Enterprise User. If you use any Services on behalf of any Enterprise User, you agree to these Terms on behalf of yourself and any such Enterprise User, and you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind the Enterprise User to these Terms and that both you and the Enterprise User will be jointly and severally liable under these Terms for any violation of these Terms or any other act or omission by the Enterprise User or by you. Without limiting the foregoing, you agree neither you nor the Enterprise User will use or offer the Services or any derivatives thereof, including any Tokens made available for trading by BITTRADE CAPITALS, to any person located in, or that is a citizen or resident of, the United States.
In order to use any Services, you must create and maintain an account through the Services (“BITTRADE CAPITALS Account”). To create or maintain your BITTRADE CAPITALS Account, or enable functions on your BITTRADE CAPITALS Account, you will be required to provide BITTRADE CAPITALS with certain information and documentation, including, as applicable, the information and documentation associated with identity verification and other screening procedures described in Section 3.3, below. You will: (a) create a unique password; (b) provide complete and accurate information; (c) promptly update any information you have provided so that the information is complete and accurate at all times; (d) maintain the security of your BITTRADE CAPITALS Account by protecting your password from unauthorized access or use; (e) promptly notify BITTRADE CAPITALS if you discover or suspect any unauthorized access or use of your BITTRADE CAPITALS Account or any security breaches related to your BITTRADE CAPITALS Account; and (f) be responsible for all activities that occur under your BITTRADE CAPITALS Account, and accept all risks of any authorized or unauthorized access to your BITTRADE CAPITALS Account.
BITTRADE CAPITALS may offer optional enhanced security features for your BITTRADE CAPITALS Account (including, for example, two-factor authentication). BITTRADE CAPITALS encourages, but may not require, you to use any such enhanced security features. If you do enable enhanced security features, it is your responsibility to ensure the security of, and your continuous control over, any device or account that may be associated with the enhanced security features.
Depending on the functions that you seek to enable on your account and BITTRADE CAPITALS’s risk determination, BITTRADE CAPITALS may, in its discretion, require identity verification and other screening procedures with respect to you or transactions associated with your BITTRADE CAPITALS Account. These verification and screening procedures may include, without limitation, checking the information you provide against the Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons list maintained by the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control, the U.S. Department of Commerce Denied Persons list, and any similar list issued by any U.S. governmental authority or any other governmental authority prohibiting or limiting business activities or transactions with any persons. You may be required to provide BITTRADE CAPITALS with certain personal information, including, but not limited to, your name, address, telephone number, email address, date of birth, taxpayer identification number, government identification number, photograph of your government-issued ID or other photographic proof of your identity, and information regarding your bank account. You hereby authorize BITTRADE CAPITALS, directly or through a third party, to make any inquiries BITTRADE CAPITALS considers necessary to verify your identity and/or protect against fraud, including but not limited to: (a) query identity information contained in public reports (e.g., your name, address, past addresses, or date of birth); (b) query account information associated with your linked bank account (e.g., name or account balance); and (c) take action BITTRADE CAPITALS reasonably deems necessary based on the results of such inquiries and reports. You further authorize any and all third parties to which such inquiries or requests may be directed to fully respond to such inquiries or requests. BITTRADE CAPITALS will have no liability or responsibility for any permanent or temporary inability to access or use any Services, including your inability to withdraw Tokens or execute Trades, as a result of any identity verification or other screening procedures.
You will be bound by, and hereby authorize BITTRADE CAPITALS to accept and rely on, any agreements, instructions, orders, authorizations and any other actions made, provided or taken by anyone who has accessed or used your BITTRADE CAPITALS Account regardless of whether the access is authorized or unauthorized. Upon receipt of written notice from you that the security of your account has been compromised, BITTRADE CAPITALS will take reasonable steps to protect your account, including, for example, to cease to allow actions initiated using any compromised account passwords. But, the first sentence of this section will continue to apply to any other account password, and any substitute password issued to replace the compromised account password.
BITTRADE CAPITALS may, in its sole discretion, limit the number of BITTRADE CAPITALS Accounts that you may hold, maintain, or acquire.
Trading cryptocurrency, cryptographic tokens and other digital rights or assets (“Tokens”), and use of other Services provided by BITTRADE CAPITALS, involves significant risks and potential for financial losses, including without limitation the following:
The risks described in this Section 4 may result in loss of Tokens, decrease in or loss of all value for Tokens, inability to access or transfer Tokens, inability to trade Tokens, inability to receive financial benefits available to other Token holders, and other financial losses to you. You hereby assume, and agree that BITTRADE CAPITALS will have no responsibility or liability for, any such risks. You hereby irrevocably waive, release and discharge any and all claims, whether known or unknown to you, against BITTRADE CAPITALS, each of their respective Affiliates and their respective shareholders, members, directors, officers, employees, agents and representatives related to any of the risks set forth herein.
You represent and warrant that you have: (a) the necessary technical expertise and ability to review and evaluate the security, integrity and operation of any Tokens that you decide to acquire or trade; and (b) the knowledge, experience, understanding, professional advice and information to make your own evaluation of the merits and risks of any Token or trade. You accept the risk of trading Tokens by using the Services, and are responsible for conducting your own independent analysis of the risks specific to the Tokens and the Services. You should not acquire or trade any Tokens unless you have sufficient financial resources and can afford to lose all value of the Tokens.
BITTRADE CAPITALS’s decision to support the transfer, storage or trading of any particular Token through the Services does not indicate BITTRADE CAPITALS’s approval or disapproval of the Token or the integrity, security or operation of the Token or its Underlying Technology. The risks associated with Tokens and trading Tokens apply notwithstanding BITTRADE CAPITALS’s decision to support a particular Token. BITTRADE CAPITALS does not provide trading advice, does not have any fiduciary duty to you or any other user and does not make any warranty about the suitability of any Token for trading or ownership by you.
Please refer to the privacy policies of BITTRADE CAPITALS, for information about how BITTRADE CAPITALS, respectively, collect, use, and share your information.
In order to engage in a Trade (as defined below) you must first transfer Tokens that are supported by the Services or fiat currencies that are supported by the Services to your BITTRADE CAPITALS Account. The Services associated with your BITTRADE CAPITALS Account include a wallet service provided by BITTRADE CAPITALS (“Hosted Wallet”). The Hosted Wallet will permit you to generate one or more addresses to which Tokens may be transferred from an account, wallet or address not hosted or controlled by BITTRADE CAPITALS or a bank account at a financial institution (“External Account”). BITTRADE CAPITALS may require that you verify your control over an External Account or satisfy other verification or screening requirements prior to enabling transfers between the applicable External Account and your Hosted Wallet or your BITTRADE CAPITALS Account (any such External Account, an “Approved External Account”).
You may periodically at your discretion transfer from an Approved External Account to your Hosted Wallet any Tokens that are supported for transfer and storage using the Services. If you transfer to your Hosted Wallet any Tokens that are not supported by the Services, such Tokens may be permanently lost. You may periodically at your discretion transfer fiat currencies that are supported by the Services from an Approved External Account to your BITTRADE CAPITALS Account for transfer and storage using the Services. You will not be entitled to receive any interest or other fees on any fiat currency held in your BITTRADE CAPITALS Account or any Tokens held in your Hosted Wallet, even if BITTRADE CAPITALS receives interest or other fees from any third parties.
When you withdraw funds from your BITTRADE CAPITALS account, a minimum withdraw amount of 30.00 is required. The exact minimum will be based on the currency denomination of the Client Account. All withdrawals are allocated a service fee of 3.5%. In the event that this percentage (3.5) equals an amount of 30.00 or below, the trader will then be charged with a 30.00 withdrawal fee. Additionally, the maximum withdrawal service fee is capped at 3,500.00. *The commissions of wire withdrawals will be placed onto the beneficiary.
You will be responsible for: (a) paying all fees charged by any third party service provider associated with any External Account or External Address as well as for paying any fees charged by BITTRADE CAPITALS for any transfers; (b) ensuring that any inbound and outbound transfers are handled in compliance with BITTRADE CAPITALS requirements, third party service provider requirements or Token requirements; (c) ensuring that the address to which any Tokens are to be transferred is properly formatted and suitable for the type of Token being transferred; and (d) ensuring that there are no errors in any of the transfer instructions you provide using the Services. In the event you fail to comply with any requirements of this Section 6.4, the transferred Tokens or fiat currency, as applicable,. may be permanently lost. The timing for completing any transfer will depend on third party actions that are outside the control of BITTRADE CAPITALS and BITTRADE CAPITALS makes no guarantee regarding the amount of time it may take to complete any transfer. BITTRADE CAPITALS may impose limits on the amount of any inbound or outbound transfers, or suspend or terminate the ability to transfer Tokens into or out of your Hosted Wallet or fiat currency into or out of your BITTRADE CAPITALS Account in order to comply with applicable laws or regulations, an order from law enforcement or other governmental authority, or otherwise at BITTRADE CAPITALS’s discretion.
A “Trade” is an exchange of Tokens, or an exchange of fiat currency for Tokens, in each case for which trading is supported on the Services between you and another user of the Services or the US Platform whereby you dispose of certain Tokens or fiat currency and acquire different Tokens or fiat currency. An “Order” is created when you enter an instruction to effect a Trade using the Services. When you enter an Order you authorize BITTRADE CAPITALS to execute a Trade on a spot basis for all or a portion of the number of Tokens or the amount of fiat currency specified in your Order in accordance with such Order. You agree to pay BITTRADE CAPITALS any applicable fees for Trades and authorize BITTRADE CAPITALS to deduct any such fees from your Hosted Wallet.
BITTRADE CAPITALS is not your broker, intermediary, agent, or advisor and has no fiduciary relationship or obligation to you in connection with any Trades or other decisions or activities effected by you using the Services. No communication or information provided to you by BITTRADE CAPITALS is intended as, or shall be considered or construed as, advice. Please refer to Section 4 for a summary of some of the risks you should consider when choosing whether to use our Services.
Before an Order is placed, the Services will generate and display a confirmation dialogue box summarizing the details of the proposed transaction, including type and amount of Tokens you are seeking to dispose of, the type and amount of Tokens or fiat currency that you are willing to accept in exchange for the Tokens or fiat currency you are seeking to dispose of, BITTRADE CAPITALS’s estimated fees if the entire Order were to be executed, and the total number and type of Tokens or the amount of fiat currency, as applicable, that will be transferred out of your Hosted Wallet if the entire Order were to be executed. Your Order will be placed upon confirmation of the Order summary via the Services. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you agree that the failure of the Services to provide such Order summary or confirmation shall not prejudice or invalidate any Order submitted by you or any Trade completed based on such Order.
Upon placement of an Order, your BITTRADE CAPITALS Account will be updated to reflect the open Order and your Order will be included in BITTRADE CAPITALS’s order book for matching with Orders from other users of the Services and the US Platform. If all or a portion of your Order is matched with another user, the Services will execute a Trade. Upon execution of a Trade, your BITTRADE CAPITALS Account will be updated to reflect that the Order has either been closed due to having been fully executed, or updated to reflect any partial fulfillment of the Order. Orders will remain open until fully executed or cancelled in accordance with Section 7.5 below. For purposes of effectuating a Trade, you authorize BITTRADE CAPITALS to take temporary control of the Tokens that you are disposing of in the Trade.
You may only cancel an order initiated via the Services if such cancellation occurs before your Order has been matched with an Order from another user. Once your Order has been matched with an Order from another user, you may not change, withdraw, or cancel your authorization for BITTRADE CAPITALS to complete such Order. If any order has been partially matched, you may cancel the unmatched portion of the Order unless and until the unmatched portion has been matched. BITTRADE CAPITALS reserves the right to refuse any cancellation request associated with a market Order after you have submitted such Order.
If you have an insufficient amount of Tokens in your Hosted Wallet or an insufficient amount of fiat currency in your BITTRADE CAPITALS Account to fulfill an Order, BITTRADE CAPITALS may cancel the entire Order or may fulfill a partial Order that can be covered by the Tokens in your Hosted Wallet or by the fiat currency in your BITTRADE CAPITALS Account (in each case after deducting any fees payable to BITTRADE CAPITALS in connection with the Trade).
BITTRADE CAPITALS may, at any time and in its sole discretion, refuse any transfer request, Order or other transaction request submitted via the Services, impose limits on the amounts of transfers or Trades that can be completed on a daily or other periodic basis or impose any other conditions or restrictions upon your use of the Services, without prior notice. For example, BITTRADE CAPITALS may: (a) limit the number of open Orders that you can establish via the Services; (b) restrict transaction requests from certain locations; or (c) restrict withdrawals or trading if there is a reasonable suspicion of fraud, diminished capacity, inappropriate activity, or if BITTRADE CAPITALS receives reasonable notice that your ownership of some or all of the Tokens in your BITTRADE CAPITALS Account is in dispute.
You must provide any information required by any screen displayed within the Services. You represent and warrant that all information you provide via the Services is accurate and complete in all respects.
BITTRADE CAPITALS retains the right, in its sole discretion, to determine whether to support transfer, storage or trading of any Token using the Services, and may discontinue or terminate any support for any Token at any time for any or no reason. Unless otherwise required by law or law enforcement, BITTRADE CAPITALS will make reasonable efforts to notify you of its decision to cease to support of a Token. If BITTRADE CAPITALS ceases to support transfer or storage of a particular Token using the Services, BITTRADE CAPITALS will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify you at least 30 days prior so as to afford you with an opportunity to transfer the affected Token from your Hosted Wallet to an External Address. If you do not transfer the affected Token out of your Hosted Wallet prior to cessation of support for the Token by BITTRADE CAPITALS, the Token may be lost due to your inability to access, transfer or otherwise control the Token. BITTRADE CAPITALS will not be liable to you for any losses, liability or expenses related to its decision to cease any support for any Token.
Unless BITTRADE CAPITALS notifies you or makes a public statement to the contrary, BITTRADE CAPITALS does not support Derivative Protocols and you should not use your BITTRADE CAPITALS Account to attempt to transfer, store, trade or engage in any other type of transaction involving a Derivative Protocol. BITTRADE CAPITALS will have no responsibility or liability whatsoever in respect to any Derivative Protocol.
You are responsible for complying with all applicable laws related to your trading activities and other use of the Services, including without limitation any reporting obligations and payment of all applicable taxes. You will determine what, if any, taxes apply to the Trades and any other transactions you complete via the Services, and it is your responsibility to report and remit the correct tax to the appropriate tax authority. BITTRADE CAPITALS is not responsible for determining whether taxes apply to your Trades or for collecting, reporting, withholding, or remitting any taxes arising from any Trades.
BITTRADE CAPITALS, Inc. is a registered Money Services Business in the United States. Both BITTRADE CAPITALS maintain internal anti-money laundering and know your customer compliance programs (“AML/KYC Program”). Each of these AML/KYC Programs is a risk-based program founded on requirements of the Bank Secrecy Act, other anti-money laundering laws and implementing regulations, and guidance promulgated by the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network. Each of these AML/KYC Program may be updated from time-to-time, including the procedures that BITTRADE CAPITALS uses to verify its customers’ identities.
BITTRADE CAPITALS may, at its option and discretion, attempt to correct, reverse or cancel any Order, Trade or transfer with respect to which BITTRADE CAPITALS has discovered that there was an error, whether such error was by you, BITTRADE CAPITALS or a third party. You hereby authorize BITTRADE CAPITALS to attempt any such correction, reversal or cancellation described in the preceding sentence. BITTRADE CAPITALS provides no guarantee or warranty that any such attempt will be successful and will have no responsibility or liability for the error or any correction attempt.
If your BITTRADE CAPITALS Account has been inactive and you have not responded to reasonable attempts by BITTRADE CAPITALS to contact you for a period of several years (as defined by the relevant statutes), BITTRADE CAPITALS may have an obligation to report any Tokens in your Hosted Wallet or any fiat currency in your BITTRADE CAPITALS Account to the applicable governmental entity as unclaimed property. If this happens, BITTRADE CAPITALS will attempt to contact you using the contact information provided by you. If you do not respond, BITTRADE CAPITALS may be obligated to turn over any Tokens in your Hosted Wallet or any fiat currency in your BITTRADE CAPITALS Account to the applicable governmental entity after deducting any fees payable to BITTRADE CAPITALS.
If BITTRADE CAPITALS receives notice that any Tokens held in your Hosted Wallet are alleged to have been stolen or otherwise are not lawfully possessed by you, BITTRADE CAPITALS may, but has no obligation to, place an administrative hold on the affected Tokens or your Hosted Wallet. If BITTRADE CAPITALS does place an administrative hold on some or all of your Tokens, BITTRADE CAPITALS may continue such hold until such time as the dispute has been resolved and evidence of the resolution acceptable to BITTRADE CAPITALS has been provided to BITTRADE CAPITALS in a form acceptable to BITTRADE CAPITALS. BITTRADE CAPITALS will not involve itself in any such dispute or the resolution of the dispute. You agree that BITTRADE CAPITALS will have no liability or responsibility for any such hold, or for your inability to withdraw Tokens or execute Trades during the period of any such hold.
You are responsible for doing all things and taking all actions necessary to enable or receive financial or other benefits made available to Token holders. For example, and without limitation, if new or additional Tokens are provided (whether by “airdrop” or other means) to holders of a Token, it would be your responsibility to claim the Tokens and to designate the wallet address for such Tokens to be delivered. BITTRADE CAPITALS has no responsibility to enable, facilitate or help with claiming or receiving any such Tokens or other benefits. For more information, please see our FAQ posted here.

The Company, further to the fees and charges paid or provided to or by the Client or other person on behalf of the Client, may pay and/or received fees/commission to/from third-parties, provided that these benefits are designed to enhanced the quality of the offered service to the Client and not impair compliance with the Company’s duty to act in the best interests of the Client. The Company may pay fee/commission to Affiliates, Introducing Brokers, referring agents or other third parties on a written agreement. This fee/commission is related to a fixed amount per referred client. The Company has the obligations and undertakes to disclose to the client, upon his request, further details regarding the amount of fees/commission or any other remuneration paid by the Company to Affiliates, Introducing Brokers, referring agents, or other third parties. The Company may also receive fees/commission as well as other remuneration from third parties based on a written agreement. The Company receives fees/commission from the counterparty through which it executes transactions. The fee/commission is related to the frequency/volume of transactions executed through the counterparty. The Company has the obligation and undertakes to disclose to the client, upon his request, further details regarding the amount of fees/commission or any other remuneration received by the Company from third parties.
BITTRADE CAPITALS may, at its discretion and without liability to you, with or without prior notice and at any time, modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, all or any portion of any Services.
A charge of 20% would be paid if a client decides to close his/her account before the said period of 1 year from the day the investment was made.
BITTRADE CAPITALS will not be liable for any losses suffered by you resulting from any modification of any Services or from any suspension or termination of your access to all or a portion of any Services (whether pursuant to this Section 10 or for any other reason). If and when Services resume, you acknowledge that Token valuations and exchange rates may differ significantly from the valuations and rates prior to such event.
In the event of discontinuation of all Services or other termination of your right to access all Services: (a) all amounts payable by you to BITTRADE CAPITALS will immediately become due; (b) BITTRADE CAPITALS may delete or deactivate your BITTRADE CAPITALS Account and all related information and files in such account without liability to you; and (c) BITTRADE CAPITALS may cancel any open Orders or other transaction requests that are pending at the time of discontinuation or termination. In the event of discontinuation or termination of all Services or discontinuation or termination of transfer or storage Services for all or some Tokens, BITTRADE CAPITALS will use commercially reasonable efforts, unless prohibited in order to comply with applicable laws or regulations or by order of law enforcement or other governmental authority, to provide you with a period of 90 days to remove the affected Tokens from your Hosted Wallet and any fiat currency from your BITTRADE CAPITALS Account.
The terms of Sections 2.3, 3.3, 4, 5, 6 and 8 through 20 will survive any termination of your access to the Services.
You consent to receive electronically all communications, agreements, documents, receipts, notices, and disclosures (collectively, “Communications”) that BITTRADE CAPITALS provides in connection with this Agreement, your BITTRADE CAPITALS Account or any Services. You agree that BITTRADE CAPITALS may provide these Communications to you by posting them via the Services, by emailing them to you at the email address you provide, sending them using an app or other messaging service to your account on the app or messaging service, and/or by sending an SMS or text message to a mobile phone number that you provide. Your carrier's normal, messaging, data, and other rates and fees may apply to any mobile Communications. You should maintain copies of electronic Communications by printing a paper copy or saving an electronic copy. You may also contact BITTRADE CAPITALS’s Support Team to request additional electronic copies of Communications or, for a fee, paper copies of Communications (as described below) by filing a support request at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In order to access and retain electronic Communications, you will need a computer with an Internet connection that has a current web browser with cookies enabled and 128-bit encryption. You will also need to have a valid email address on file with BITTRADE CAPITALS and have sufficient storage space to save past Communications or an installed printer to print them.
You may withdraw your consent to receive electronic Communications by sending a withdrawal notice to our Support Team by filing a support request at http://support.BITTRADE CAPITALS.com. If you decline or withdraw consent to receive electronic Communications, BITTRADE CAPITALS may suspend or terminate your use of the Services.
If, after you consent to receive Communications electronically, you would like a paper copy of a Communication that BITTRADE CAPITALS previously sent you, you may request a copy within 30 days after the date BITTRADE CAPITALS provided the Communication to you by contacting BITTRADE CAPITALS at email@example.com. In order for BITTRADE CAPITALS to send paper copies to you, you must have a current street address on file with BITTRADE CAPITALS. Please note that our Services operate exclusively online and it is very burdensome for BITTRADE CAPITALS to produce paper copies of Communications. Therefore, if you request paper copies, you agree that BITTRADE CAPITALS may charge you a processing fee, in the amount described in the Fee Schedule at BITTRADE CAPITALS.com/fees for each page of Communication requested.
It is your responsibility to keep your email address and/or mobile phone number on file with BITTRADE CAPITALS up to date so that BITTRADE CAPITALS can communicate with you electronically. If BITTRADE CAPITALS sends you an electronic Communication but you do not receive it because your email address or mobile phone number on file is incorrect, out of date, blocked by your service provider, or you are otherwise unable to receive electronic Communications, BITTRADE CAPITALS will be deemed to have provided the Communication to you. Please note that if you use a spam filter that blocks or re-routes emails from senders not listed in your email address book, you must add BITTRADE CAPITALS to your email address book so that you will be able to receive the Communications BITTRADE CAPITALS sends to you. You can update your email address, mobile phone number, or street address at any time by filing a support request at firstname.lastname@example.org. If your email address or mobile phone number becomes invalid such that electronic Communications sent to you by BITTRADE CAPITALS are returned, BITTRADE CAPITALS may deem your account to be inactive, and you may not be able to complete any transaction via our Services until BITTRADE CAPITALS receives a valid, working email address or mobile phone number from you.
