The verification of the Account consists of you providing personal information, in order for Dex-Trade.com to be able to verify that whoever claims to be registering on the Website is effectively the person who claims to be and is able to validate that the origin of the funds traded by that person is legitimate and that the funds belong to that person. For this purpose Dex-Trade.com provides tools, which allow the User to obtain this result and in particular there will be a difference between those people who wish to trade relevant amounts, through the Website, and those who do not.
Dex-Trade.com keeps, as it may apply, at its sole discretion, the amount, which it considers relevant, as well as the denomination of that amount Dex-Trade reserves the right to request all the information it considers pertinent and necessary, in order to enable the User to transact or operate any of the services it provides.

You will be obliged to comply with these requests, otherwise you agree that your Account will be closed. What is more, in case of this situation, you are primarily required to immediately contact Dex-Trade.com as indicated in the "Contact" section below.
The Account is personal, unique and non-transferable, and it is prohibited for the same Registered User to register or own more than one account, or to allow third parties to access the services offered by Dex-Trade.com, through his account, without the relevant prior authorization by Dex-Trade.com. In the event of Dex-Trade.com detecting different accounts that contain matching or related data, it reserves the right to delete, suspend or disable those accounts, without the User obtaining any right to compensation.

Risks related to Cryptocurrencies and the use of the Website
The exchange of goods or products, real or virtual, as well as money or currencies, carries a significant risk. The prices of these may vary over time and because of the occurrence of different events. As a result of these price variations, the value of your assets can increase or decrease drastically at any time and without prior notice.
By using the Website, you assume, declare and guarantee to be aware that any commodity, whether virtual or not, is subject to significant changes in value, and may even end up with a value equal to zero. That said, there is an inherent risk of loss of money related to the purchase, sale or exchange of goods in the market, both real and virtual, and the same applies to Cryptocurrencies.
Furthermore, you declare and accept that the exchange of Cryptocurrencies may carry special risks, which may not necessarily apply to currencies, assets or products of free exchange.
Unlike currencies or foreign exchange rates of the rest of the world, which are backed up by federal reserves, central banks, governments or other entities, or by commodities such as gold and silver, Cryptocurrencies are only supported by technology and the mutual trust of the users who own them.
Therefore, there is no federal reserve, central bank, government or other entity that protects their value, and they are reached exclusively under the balance between supply and demand.
Although it is not our mission or our intention to define exactly what a Cryptocurrency and its' generation system is, we can point out, in a few words, by taking as reference bitcoin and ethereum, which correspond to a global, decentralized and autonomous, self-regulated system, through which a virtual commodity, or digital asset, called Cryptocurrency is generated and circulated, and whose value is based on the trust the users themselves give the system.
In this regard, you declare to know and accept that the trade or exchange of Cryptocurrencies can be susceptible to irrational (or rational) bubbles, can be subject to loss of trust, and in consequence could lead to a collapse of your demand regarding the offer.
Merely by way of example, as the scenarios may vary, the trust in the Cryptocurrencies could collapse as a result of an unexpected change imposed by a software developer, of a prohibition imposed by some government or state, of the creation of a technically superior alternative, or simply of an inflationary or deflationary spiral.
What is more, the trust in Cryptocurrencies could collapse due to possible technical problems, such as when the money of the owners or people who interact or operate with Cryptocurrencies were stolen or lost, or if hackers or governments cause the prevention of transactions being made.
As for the transactions of purchase and sale of Cryptocurrencies, you understand and accept that once the orders are entered into the Platform and they are processed as completed or pending, it is not possible to cancel, reverse or change those orders. Each User is responsible for maintaining an adequate balance of funds /cryptocurrencies in order to avoid situations in which the costs associated with the withdrawal of the Cryptocurrencies or legal tender are greater than the net amount of said withdrawal. Furthermore, Users will be responsible for the information provided for any subscription or withdrawal in Cryptocurrencies to or from their Dex-Trade.com Account to or from an external Cryptocurrency wallet. Therefore, if the information provided by the User to carry out such shipments or receipts of Cryptocurrencies to or from wallets of Dex-Trade.com is incorrect or does not correspond to the particular type of Cryptocurrency that is being sent or received, you accept that the prior could mean the total loss of those cryptocurrencies sent or received.
Dex-Trade.com reserves the right to refuse to process any purchase, sale or withdrawal order of Cryptocurrencies or legal tender, in its sole discretion, if Dex-Trade.com suspects that the order involves (or has a high risk of involving) activities related to money laundering, terrorist financing, fraud, or any type of financial crime, or activity that is not in accordance with the rules of these Terms and Conditions; or in case of being required judicially or administratively to do so by some competent authority. In such circumstances, Dex-Trade.com will cancel or refuse to process the order, without an obligation to allow a subsequent order at the same price or on the same terms as the order canceled or refused.
Changes in Protocols supporting Cryptocurrencies (Forks)
Dex-Trade.com does not control or have any interference in the base protocols that regulate the operation of the Cryptocurrencies supported by the Website (the "Protocols"). Therefore, Dex-Trade.com will not be responsible for the functioning of the Protocols, nor does it guarantee its operation, security or availability. Therefore, you declare to be aware that the Protocols may be subject to modifications to their rules of operation (“Forks”) and that such modifications may materially affect the value, utility and availability of the Cryptocurrency, of which protocol is modified. Consequently, if a Fork occurs, which affects any of the Cryptocurrencies supported by the Platform, you agree that Dex-Trade.com may temporarily suspend any operation linked to it (with or without prior notice) and that Dex-Trade.com may, at its sole discretion, decide to operate (or cease to operate) the underlying cryptocurrency that the protocol modified through Fork. You acknowledge and agree that Dex-Trade.com will nottake any responsibility for any damage caused by a Fork not supported by the Platform.
In case that Dex-Trade.com pronounces itself negatively about an eventual Fork to one of the supported Protocols, or does not pronounce its position regarding it, and a User wishes to participate in the results of that Fork, the User must withdraw the Cryptocurrencies connected to the affected Protocol from his Dex-Trade.com Account to a wallet that supports the Fork before the budgeted date for that Fork.
Dex-Trade.com will not take any responsibility in relation to any attempt of use of the Services for Cryptocurrencies, which Dex-Trade.com does not support.
