Risk Warning - Notice to UK Users  

Estimated reading time: 2 mins

Due to the potential for losses, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) considers this investment to be high risk.

What are the key risks?

1.You could lose all the money you invest

The performance of most cryptoassets can be highly volatile, with their value dropping as quickly as it can rise. You should be prepared to lose all the money you invest in crypto assets.

The crypto asset market is largely unregulated. There is a risk of losing money or any cryptoassets you purchase due to risks such as cyber-attacks, financial crime and firm failure.

2.You should not expect to be protected if something goes wrong

The Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) doesn’t protect this type of investment because it’s not a ‘specified investment’ under the UK regulatory regime – in other words, this type of investment isn’t recognised as the sort of investment that the FSCS can protect. Learn more by using the FSCS investment protection checker here.

The Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) will not be able to consider complaints related to this firm. Learn more about FOS protection here.

3.You may not be able to sell your investment when you want to

There is no guarantee that investments in crypto assets can be easily sold at any given time. The ability to sell a crypto asset depends on various factors, including the supply and demand in the market at that time.

Operational failings such as technology outages, cyber-attacks and comingling of funds could cause unwanted delay and you may be unable to sell your crypto assets at the time you want.

4.Cryptoasset investments can be complex

Investments in crypto assets can be complex, making it difficult to understand the risks associated with the investment.

You should do your own research before investing. If something sounds too good to be true, itprobably is.

5.Don’t put all your eggs in one basket

Putting all your money into a single type of investment is risky. Spreading your money across different investments makes you less dependent on any one to do well.

A good rule of thumb is not to invest more than 10% of your money in high-risk investments. Learn more here.

We're thrilled to share that our fintech company has just celebrated its third anniversary! It's been an incredible journey so far, and we're so grateful for the opportunity to serve our users every day.

When we first launched our platform three years ago, we had a clear mission in mind: to provide an innovative, user-friendly, and accessible way for people to manage their money, trade cryptocurrencies, and access financial services. It was a big goal, and we knew that we had a lot of hard work ahead of us.

But we were determined to succeed. Our small team of passionate and dedicated individuals worked tirelessly, day in and day out, to bring our vision to life. We poured our hearts and souls into this project, and we knew that we were onto something special.

Fast forward three years, and we're proud to say that we've come a long way. We've built a platform that we believe in, and we're constantly striving to improve it. We've listened to feedback from our users, and we've added new features and services that meet their needs. And we've built a community of passionate and engaged users who share our vision for a better way to manage their finance everyday.

One of the things that sets our company apart is our commitment to transparency and user experience. We believe that managing your finances should be easy, intuitive, and stress-free. That's why we've built our platform to be as user-friendly as possible, with clear and straightforward interfaces that make it easy to manage your money and digital assets.

But our success wouldn't be possible without our amazing users. We're so grateful for your continued support, feedback, and encouragement. You've helped us to shape our platform into something truly special, and we're committed to continuing to serve you and improve our platform to meet your needs.

As we celebrate our third anniversary, we're excited to look back on how far we've come and to look forward to all the exciting things that the future holds. We're proud of what we've accomplished, but we know that there's always more work to be done. We're committed to continuing to innovate and improve, and we're grateful to have you along for the ride.

Thank you for being part of our journey. Here's to many more years of growth, success, and innovation!
