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 coin 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 our Services.
TOKERO may, at any time and in our 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 these Terms of service, 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, Swingby, 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 transactions Services on the Platform are subject to fees. The user is presented with the applicable fees before entering the transaction. The acceptance of the Terms of service and the confirmation of the transaction constitutes agreement to pay all such applicable fees. The user will not be charged with any such fees in the unlikely event the transaction is rejected for any reason. The Company guarantees that the fees before entering the transaction will remain applicable for that specific transaction. TOKERO may update from time to time the applicable fees. Any update of the fees will become applicable within 30 calendar days after you have been informed about the update via updates to this page and the user may or may not accept the updated fee within 15 calendar days or at the moment of requesting a transaction. Whether the users do not agree with the updated fees, they have the possibility to withdraw their funds held on the Platform before the updated fees will become applicable. In any case, whether the user did not expressly accept the updated fees within the aforementioned deadline, he/she will not be able to request any trade without accepting the amended Terms of service and including the updated fees.
When the funds invested by the user are transferred to the TOKERO Platform, the user will receive an information email. If the IBAN is identified, it is assigned automatically. If not, the user will receive instructions for loading the bank account statement.
The moment of debiting the funds from the user’s bank account does not coincide with the moment of entering the funds in the TOKERO accounts, most transfers being interbank and may require from several hours to several days for completion. The processing time of an order placed by the user can be instantly or even up to 4 banking days, usually 2 (two) banking days average. The processing time displayed on the Platform refers to working/banking days and working hours.
Moreover, the moment of crediting the money in the bank accounts of TOKERO does not necessarily coincide with the moment of their crediting in the user`s balance. The difference has grounds on the time required for specific checks on anti-money laundering legal provisions.
The user should send fiat currency only from/to his/her bank account opened in his/her name and that was pre-authorized by the Company when registering/updating the account. In cases where the name on the payment order does not match the name of the TOKERO account holder, the amount will not be credited to the balance. The user will receive an email with instructions for resolving the situation, but the time to resolve depends on the solution the user will choose, and the number of attempts required to succeed.
The Company cannot and will not guarantee that the exchange rates displayed at the moment you decide to make an order and you request a trade will remain unchanged and applicable until the moment the order is completely processed (namely the cryptocurrency is credited on your account or the fiat is credited on your account on the Platform), considering the volatile market price movements and the role of the Platform as a cryptocurrency exchange instrument. The user will receive from the Platform an information email with its possibilities. Therefore, the user acknowledges that he/she will bear the price movements and related risks in relation to the order placed and the user will decide whether to cancel the entire order or to update the order to be fulfilled partially.
The user may order the withdrawal of fiat funds or cryptocurrencies available on its account. In case any limitations apply, these 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.
The Platform does not provide exchanging services of fiat-to-fiat currency, only transactions to/from cryptocurrency being processed.
The Platform also offers the users the possibility to keep the cryptocurrency bought/held until a further transaction and the users may check the available funds on their account. For avoidance of doubt, as mentioned above, the fiat currency is kept on the Company’s bank account, the user’s account on the Platform not having the features of a bank account.
The users acknowledge that TOKERO does not pay interest on free fiat balances held in their account.
The users confirm and understand that the cryptocurrency market is volatile, and they will bear any and all losses and risks deriving from the market price movements.
Moreover, the users understand that the fiat funds held in their account are exclusively for the purchase of cryptocurrency or for withdrawal to the pre-authorized bank accounts, under the conditions set by the Terms of services, as they may be amended from time to time.
Delisting of any cryptocurrency or fiat currency shall take place at the sole discretion of the Company, without the obligation to state its reasons for delisting of a cryptocurrency. TOKERO shall announce the plan to delist a cryptocurrency or fiat fund at least two weeks (14 days) in advance. After this period, it will be no longer possible to provide/request new orders involving said cryptocurrency or fiat fund and all existing orders will be cancelled. The announcement of the delisting shall be made via e-mail sent directly to the user and by publishing information on the Platform. The users are obliged to order the withdrawal of delisted cryptocurrency or fiat funds or to trade the delisted fiat fund into another cryptocurrency. The user acknowledge that he/she will bear the risks deriving from any delisted cryptocurrency that cannot be withdrawn from the Platform due to objective technical impossibilities (e.g., the liquidation of the cryptocurrency’s blockchain), in which case such cryptocurrency shall be deleted.
In the event of an error, whether through the Services, in a purchase order confirmation in processing your purchase, or otherwise, TOKERO reserves the right to correct such error 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 case, you will be notified and informed by the Company. Also, in case due to an error in the Platform upon performing a transaction, you receive a higher amount of fiat funds or cryptocurrencies in your account than you have been entitled to as a result of the transaction, you have the obligation to reimburse the excessive fiat funds / cryptocurrencies immediately or, as the Company may decide, you agree that the Company may perform such settlement on your account.
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.
