The following list does not represent an exhaustive list. There may be additional risks that apply to you as an investor or holder of Rebel coin that are not outlined below. The cryptocurrency market is extremely volatile and is susceptible to price shocks based on a number of events and non-events. On reading the outlined risks below you should consider whether you are willing to accept such risks before making an investment into Rebel coin.
Any errors or malfunctions caused by or otherwise related to the digital wallet or vault you choose to receive and store Rebel coin, including your own failure to properly maintain or use such digital wallet or vault, may also result in the loss of your Rebel coin. Additionally, your failure to precisely follow the procedures set forth for buying and receiving Rebel coin, including, for instance, if you provide an incorrect Rebel coin Receipt Address, or provide an address that is not Rebel coin compatible, may result in the loss of your Rebel coin.
Because Coins and the Ecosystem are partially based on the Rebel blockchain protocol, any malfunction, breakdown or abandonment of the Rebel blockchain protocol may have a material adverse effect on the Ecosystem or Rebel coin. Moreover, advances in cryptography, or technical advances such as the development of quantum computing, could present risks to the Rebel coin and the Ecosystem, including the utility of the Rebel coin for obtaining Services, by rendering ineffective the cryptographic consensus mechanism that underpins the Rebel blockchain protocol.
As with other decentralized cryptographic tokens based on the Rebel blockchain, the Coins are susceptible to attacks by miners in the course of validating Coin transactions on the Rebel blockchain, including, but not limited to, double-spend attacks, majority mining power attacks, and selfish-mining attacks. Any successful attacks present a risk to the Ecosystem and the Coins, including, but not limited to, accurate execution and recording of transactions involving Coins.
Hackers or other malicious groups or organizations may attempt to interfere with the Ecosystem or the Coins in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to, malware attacks, denial of service attacks, consensus-based attacks, smurfing and spoofing. Furthermore, because the Ecosystem is based on open-source software, there is a risk that a third party or a member of the Rebel coin team may intentionally or unintentionally introduce weaknesses into the core infrastructure of the Ecosystem, which could negatively affect the Ecosystem and the Coins, including the utility of the Coins for obtaining Services.
Rebel coin will make every effort to ensure that the cryptocurrency funds received from the Coin Offering will be securely held in the Escrow Wallet. Notwithstanding such security measures, there is no assurance that there will be no theft of the cryptocurrencies as a result of hacks, sophisticated cyber-attacks, distributed denials of service or errors, vulnerabilities or defects on the Website, in the smart contracts on which the Escrow Wallet and the Coin Offering rely, on the Rebel blockchain or any other blockchain, or otherwise. Such events may include, for example, flaws in programming or source code leading to exploitation or abuse thereof. In such event, even if the Coin Offering is completed, Rebel coin may not be able to receive the cryptocurrencies raised and may not be able to utilize such funds for the development of the Ecosystem. As such, distributed Rebel coin may hold little worth or value, and this would impact its trading price.
The Coins are intended to be used solely within the Ecosystem and Rebel coin will not support or otherwise facilitate any secondary trading or external valuation of Coins. This restricts the contemplated avenues for using Coins to the provision or receipt of Services, and could therefore create illiquidity risk with respect to any Coins you own. Even if secondary trading of Coins is facilitated by third-party exchanges, such exchanges may be relatively new and subject to little or no regulatory oversight, making them more susceptible to fraud or manipulation. Furthermore, to the extent that third parties do ascribe an external exchange value to Coins (e.g., as denominated in a digital or fiat currency), such value may be extremely volatile and diminish to zero.
Future sales or issuance of Rebel coin could materially and adversely affect the market price of Rebel coin. Any future sale or issuance of Rebel coin would increase the supply of Rebel coin in the market and this may result in a downward price pressure on Rebel coin. The sale or distribution of a significant number of Rebel coin outside of the Coin Offering (including but not limited to the sales of Rebel coin undertaken after the Coin Offering, issuance of Rebel coin to persons other than Participants for purposes of community initiatives, business development, education and market expansion and issuance of Rebel coin as a reward to users of the Ecosystem), or the perception that such further sales or issuance may occur, could adversely affect the trading price of the Coins.
Unlike bank accounts or accounts at some other financial institutions, Coins are uninsured unless you specifically obtain private insurance to insure them. Thus, in the event of loss or loss of utility value, there is no public insurer or any private insurance arranged by Rebel coin, to offer recourse to you.
The regulatory status of the Coins and distributed ledger technology is unclear or unsettled in many jurisdictions. It is difficult to predict how or whether regulatory agencies may apply existing regulation with respect to such technology and its applications, including the
Ecosystem and the Coins. It is likewise difficult to predict how or whether legislatures or regulatory agencies may implement changes to law and regulation affecting distributed ledger technology and its applications, including the Ecosystem and the Coins. Regulatory actions could negatively impact the Ecosystem and the Coins in various ways, including, for purposes of illustration only, through a determination that the purchase, sale and delivery of the Coins constitutes unlawful activity or that the Coins are a regulated instrument that require registration or licensing of those instruments or some or all of the parties involved in the purchase, sale and delivery thereof. Rebel coin may cease operations in a jurisdiction in the event that regulatory actions, or changes to law or regulation, make it illegal to operate in such jurisdiction, or commercially undesirable to obtain the necessary regulatory approval(s) to operate in such jurisdiction.
The tax characterization of Coins is uncertain. You must seek your own tax advice in connection with purchasing Coins, which may result in adverse tax consequences to you, including withholding taxes, income taxes and tax reporting requirements.
It is possible that alternative Ecosystems could be established that utilize similar protocols underlying the Ecosystem and attempt to facilitate services that are materially similar to the Services. The Ecosystem may compete with these alternatives, which could negatively impact the Ecosystem and Coins, including the utility of the Coins for obtaining Services.
It is possible that the Ecosystem will not be used by a large number of individuals, companies and other entities or that there will be limited public interest in the creation and development of distributed Ecosystems (such as the Ecosystem) more generally. Such a lack of use or interest could negatively impact the development of the Ecosystem and therefore the potential utility of the Coins, including the utility of the Coins for obtaining Services.
The Ecosystem is still under development and may undergo significant changes over time. Although we intend for the Coins and Ecosystem to function as described in the Whitepaper and intend to take commercially reasonable steps toward those ends, we may have to make changes to any timelines announced in the Whitepaper, on the Website or any other official channel of Rebel coin, or the specifications of the Coins or Ecosystem for any number of legitimate reasons. This could create the risk that the Coins or Ecosystem, as further developed and maintained, may not meet your expectations at the time of purchase.
It is possible that, due to any number of reasons, including, but not limited to, an unfavorable fluctuation in the value of BTC, ETH, (or other cryptographic and fiat currencies), decrease in the Coins’ utility (including their utility for obtaining Services), the failure of commercial relationships, intellectual property ownership challenges, insolvency, or the liquidation of
Rebel coin, the Ecosystem may no longer be viable to operate. The Participants may lose parts or all of their Rebel coin purchasing price.
Because Coins confer no governance rights of any kind with respect to the Ecosystem or Rebel coin, all decisions involving Rebel coin’s products or services within the Ecosystem or Rebel itself will be made by Rebelat its sole discretion, including, but not limited to, decisions to discontinue its products or services, to create and sell more Coins for use on the Ecosystem, or to sell or liquidate Rebel coin. These decisions could adversely affect the Ecosystem and the utility of any Coins you own, including their utility for obtaining Services.
Especially at the start, Rebel relies on business partners to provide certain Services, especially for Services that require licenses as financial service institutions. While we have legally-binding agreements with business partners and are already in talks with further potential partners, we cannot guarantee that business partners won’t terminate their cooperation for whatever reason or that we can close new agreements with potential partners. The provision of certain Services might therefore be interrupted, delayed or cannot be offered at all.
The Rebel coin is intended to be used solely on the Ecosystem, and Rebel coin will not support or otherwise facilitate any secondary trading or external valuation of Rebel coin. This restricts the contemplated avenues for using Rebel coin to obtain Services or access the Ecosystem, and could therefore create illiquidity risk with respect to Rebel coin you hold. Even if secondary trading of Rebel coin is facilitated by third party exchanges, such exchanges may be relatively new and subject to little or no regulatory oversight, making them more susceptible to market-related risks. Furthermore, to the extent that third-parties do ascribe an external exchange value to Rebel coin (e.g., as denominated in a digital or fiat currency), such value may be extremely volatile and diminish to zero.
Rebel coin’s infrastructure is established through servers that it rents at data center facilities of third parties. If Rebel is unable to renew its data facility lease under commercially reasonable terms or at all, Rebel may be required to transfer its servers to a new data center 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 unauthorized access to the data in such servers. As techniques used to obtain unauthorized access to, or to sabotage systems change frequently and generally are not recognized until launched against a target, Rebel coin and the providers of such facilities may be unable to anticipate these techniques or to implement adequate preventive measures. Any such security breaches or damages which occur which impact upon Rebel coin’s infrastructure network and/or the Ecosystem may adversely impact the price of Rebel coin.
Rebel coin has been and could continue to be affected by general global economic and market conditions. Challenging economic conditions worldwide have from time to time, contributed, and may continue to contribute, to slowdowns in the information technology industry at large. Weakness in the economy could have a negative effect on Rebel and Rebel coin’s business, operations and financial condition, including decreases in revenue and operating cash flows. Additionally, in a down-cycle economic environment, Rebel coin may experience the negative effects of increased competitive pricing pressure and a slowdown in commerce and usage of the Ecosystem. Suppliers on which Rebel coin relies for servers, bandwidth, location and other services could also be negatively impacted by economic conditions that, in turn, could have a negative impact on Rebel coin’s operations or expenses. There can be no assurance, therefore, that current economic conditions or worsening economic conditions or a prolonged or recurring recession will not have a significant adverse impact on Rebel’s business, financial condition and results of operations and hence the Ecosystem, which would correspondingly impact the trading price of Rebel coin.
Cryptographic tokens such as Rebel coin are a new and untested technology. In addition to the risks included in this Risk Disclosure. there are other risks associated with your purchase, possession, and use of the Coins, including unanticipated risks. Such risks may further materialize as unanticipated variations or combinations of the risks discussed in this Risk Disclosure.
