The Platform serves as a platform for cryptocurrency trading that can be performed either online or physically at the Crypto Spots partners. As detailed under Section 3 above, users must register and create an account with TOKERO and deposit fiat/cryptocurrency into their account prior to trading. The users may, subject to the conditions set forth in these Terms of service, apply for the withdrawal of the cryptocurrency stored into their account.
The users are fully independent and accountable for the decisions they take and for the trading actions they have on the Platform. TOKERO does not provide trading, investment or consulting advice of any kind and it is not accountable for the use of the Platform.
All users of the Platform and of the Services must understand the risks involved by cryptocurrency trading, subject to volatile market price movements, and are recommended to exercise prudence and trade responsibly within their own capabilities.
The Platform serves merely as a venue of transactions, but TOKERO cannot control the quality, security or legality of the cryptocurrency involved in any transaction, truthfulness or accuracy of the transaction information, or capacity of the parties to any transaction to perform its obligations under the transaction documents. You shall cautiously make judgment on your own on the truthfulness, legality and effectiveness of the coin and information in question and undertake any liabilities and losses that may be caused thereby.
Any description of any token listed on the Platform is either extracted from general public information about that particular token, available to anyone, or provided by the issuer of that particular token. It does not and should not be considered as TOKERO’s own opinion or the result of an internal research conducted by TOKERO.
TOKERO may, at its sole discretion and without liability to you, with prior notice and at any time, modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, any portion of the Company's Services.
TOKERO may, at any time and in its sole discretion, with a reasonable justification, refuse any trade submitted via the Services/Platform, impose limits on the trade amount permitted through the Platform or impose any other additional conditions or restrictions upon your use of the Services/Platform for creating your account or for trading, with a prior notice.
The following Services may be accessed on the Platform:
Upon properly registering on the Platform, the users may conduct cryptocurrency trading on the Platform with the observance of theseTerms and conditions, as they may be updated from time to time.
The Company informs the users through its Platform about the cryptocurrencies that can be traded (e.g. Bitcoin, Ethereum, eGOLD, USDT, RSR), the fiat currency that can be used (e.g. RON, EURO), the minimum and maximums of the funds that can be traded and about the fees charged by TOKERO for processing a transaction and the times for processing an order. All this information may be updated regularly by the Company, therefore the user should check the Platform anytime he/she desires to request an order.
The deposit of fiat into the wallet of the account that the user holds on TOKERO can be done either by bank transfer or by bank card payment.
A. By choosing to fund the wallet via bank transfer, it should be noted that this functionality is only possible from a bank account opened in the user's name. In order to confirm the bank account, it is necessary to upload a bank statement from that account to the TOKERO user account beforehand, including the identification elements: holder name, account number, currency. In the event of sending funds from an account whose statement has not yet been validated on the platform, the amount sent will not be credited to the account of the user. In this case, the user will receive an e-mail with instructions to follow, however, the resolution time for such an issue does not depend on the company, but on how the user decides to proceed and the number of attempts needed to achieve the desired result. The time at which the user has made the fiat transfer does not coincide with the time at which the user's wallet is loaded onto the TOKERO platform, as the transfer time depends on a third party, namely the bank, and can take from several hours to several days. Specifically, this transfer can be processed instantly, but can take up to 4 days, although it generally takes on average 2 days. The processing time mentioned, refers to working/banking days and working hours. Also, the time of crediting money to TOKERO's bank accounts does not necessarily coincide with the time of crediting it to the user's balance. This difference is due to the time required for specific checks on the legal provisions against money laundering.
B. The functionality of payment by bank card is made available to users of the platform through a collaboration between the Company and a third party that will provide this service, namely a payment processor.
Furthermore, by choosing any of the above-mentioned deposit options, the user acknowledges and accepts that these options may be changed or even become unavailable for reasons not attributable to the Company.
Trading services on the platform are subject to fees which are made available to users for consultation in a table available on the platform. In addition, when performing any transaction on the platform, the fee is automatically applied and is already included in the displayed exchange rate, therefore by accepting the Terms and conditions and confirming the transaction requested, the user agrees to pay all such applicable fees. The exact procedure applies if the company, for reasons beyond its control, has to update the applicable fees, at which point the user acknowledges and implicitly accepts these changes by confirming the transaction he/she has initiated.
In the event of a failed transfer, for reasons not attributable to the user, the user will not be charged such fees. The Company guarantees that pre-initiation fees will remain applicable for that specific transaction.
When the funds invested by the user are transferred to the TOKERO platform, the user will receive an e-mail notification. If the IBAN is identified, it is automatically assigned. Otherwise, the user will receive instructions to upload the bank statement.
The Company cannot and will not guarantee that the exchange rates displayed at the time the user decides to place an order and requests a transaction will remain unchanged and applicable until the order is fully processed (i.e. the cryptocurrency is credited to the user's account or the fiat currency is credited to the user's account on the Platform), given the volatile market price fluctuations and the role of the Platform as a cryptocurrency exchange tool. Therefore, the user acknowledges that he/she will bear the price movements and related risks associated with the placed order, and the user will decide whether to cancel the entire order or update the order to be partially executed.
The user can order the withdrawal of fiat funds or cryptocurrencies available in his account.
Cryptocurrency withdrawal must be confirmed with 2FA for increased security. In the event that it is not confirmed within 2 hours from the time it was initiated, it will auto-cancel.
For fiat fund withdrawals, you are required to have completed the identity verification process on the TOKERO Platform through Ondato - a third-party web provider, as well as to have uploaded the corresponding IBAN to the account you wish to withdraw to, in your TOKERO platform account. In the event that you have not met these two conditions, and do not fulfill them within a period of 2 (two) weeks from the initiation of the withdrawal, it will auto-cancel. Your withdrawal can then be initiated again and will be processed only once these two conditions are met.
These withdrawal conditions are designed as a security measure that the TOKERO Platform implements to enhance the security of user accounts registered on the Platform.
If limitations apply, they will be announced to the users on the Platform.
The minimums and maximum value of deposits, payments and withdrawals of fiat funds and cryptocurrencies are specified in the table of minimums and maximums made available on the Platform.
If the user chose to buy crypto by bank card, then he/she should be aware that this payment is not dependent on the Company, but on a third party collaborator, namely the payment processor. Thus, by selecting this method of purchasing cryptocurrencies by card payment, the user acknowledges and accepts that there is a probability that certain payments may be rejected for reasons not attributable to the Company, such payments being considered suspicious by the payment processor. The Payment Processor may also ask the user using the card payment certain additional questions that it deems relevant to verify the information submitted by the user.
Buying cryptocurrencies by card can be done with both credit and debit cards. The type of card accepted by the Payment Company processor is MASTERCARD.
Since the purchase of cryptocurrencies by card is a functionality operated by a third party - the payment processor, payments made by users on business days will be received by the payment processor on the day they were made. For payments that were not made on a working day, they will be treated as received on the next working day.
The TOKERO platform does not store or collect credit/debit cardholder data, therefore the user assumes all responsibility for the use of cards, other than those of which he/she is the holder. In the case of users who are legal entities, they may purchase cryptocurrencies by card payment both with a legal person card and with a natural person card, provided that the natural person is a partner of the legal person for which the cryptocurrencies were purchased.
Once the card payment option is selected, there are certain limitations, namely:
In the event of an error in payment processing not attributable to the user and caused solely by the payment processor, but in which the card of the user has been debited and the funds are to arrive at TOKERO, without requiring a dedicated action by the user, the user will be allocated with the amount he has opted for in the purchase of cryptocurrencies into his TOKERO wallet.
The transactions performed from countries such as China, Vietnam, Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Algeria, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Jordan, Kyrgyzstan, Morocco, Nepal, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Pakistan, Taiwan, Cambodia, South Korea, Uzbekistan will not be authorised.
The platform does not provide fiat-to-fiat currency exchange services, it only processes transactions to/from cryptocurrencies.
The platform also offers users the possibility to hold purchased/owned cryptocurrencies until a subsequent transaction, and users can check the funds available in their account. Users are aware that TOKERO does not pay them, nor does it charge interest on fiat balances held for free in their account.
Users acknowledge and understand that the cryptocurrency market is volatile and that they will bear all losses and risks arising from market price fluctuations.
Furthermore, users understand that fiat funds held in their account are intended solely for the purchase of cryptocurrencies or withdrawal to pre-authorized bank accounts under the conditions set forth in the Terms and conditions, as amended from time to time.
Withdrawal from trade of any cryptocurrency or fiat currency shall be at the sole discretion of the Company, without obligation to state the reasons for withdrawing a cryptocurrency from trading. TOKERO will notify the plan to withdraw a cryptocurrency or fiat currency from trading at least two weeks (14 days) in advance. After this period, it will no longer be possible to provide/request new transactions (deposits, withdrawals and/or exchanges) involving that cryptocurrency or fiat currency, and all existing and uncompleted orders will be cancelled. The delisting announcement will be communicated by e-mail sent directly to the user and by publishing the information on the Platform. The Users are obliged to request the withdrawal of the cryptocurrency or fiat currency to be delisted, or to exchange into another cryptocurrency that is not in the delisting process. The User acknowledges that he/she will bear the risks arising from any delisted cryptocurrency that cannot be withdrawn from the Platform due to objective technical impossibilities (e.g. the liquidation of the cryptocurrency blockchain), whereupon such cryptocurrency will be deleted.
In the event of an error, either through the Services or in a confirmation of the purchase order in processing the user's purchase or otherwise, TOKERO reserves the right to correct any error of this nature and to revise the purchase transaction accordingly (including charging the correct price/exchange rate) or to cancel the purchase and refund any amount received. In any event, the user will be notified and informed by the Company. Moreover, if, due to an error in the Platform, when performing a transaction, the user was credited to his/her account a greater amount of fiat funds or cryptocurrencies than it was entitled to, as a result of the transaction, the user is obliged to immediately refund the excess fiat/cryptocurrency funds or, at the Company's discretion, he/she will agree to to have the Company make such settlement from the account of the user in question.
TOKERO also offers to its users the possibility to trade the cryptocurrency with cash fiat currency at the Crypto Spots partners that have a corporate account on the Platform. The relevant information about the Crypto Spots and their location can be found on the Platform. The individuals that will use the trading services from the Crypto Spots partners will become users of the Platform and will be identified as becoming users through a Crypto Spot, if they are not already a user at the moment they decide to use the Crypto Spots. Through the Crypto Spots, the user is able to trade fiat-to-crypto and crypto-to-fiat, only using cash fiat currency.
The individual that has no account in the Platform will have to provide a picture of the identification document (passport or personal identity card) in order to register on the Platform. The user of the Platform that wants to use the Crypto Spot will be identified through its telephone number. The maximum cash fiat amount that can be paid at the Crypto Spots is up to RON 5.000/person/day, according to the applicable legal provisions from the Company’s jurisdiction.
When using the Crypto Spots that have a tablet for cryptocurrency exchange, after being identified, the user will be informed about the exchange rates and will be provided with an QR code that should be used to fulfil the transaction. Through this QR code, the user will be informed about the address where they should send the funds to.
