5 ETN AND BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGY
5.1 ETN is a cryptocurrency, a type of digital asset used to store value.
5.2 The services we provide operate using distributed ledger technology, also known as ‘blockchain’.
5.3 ETN’s blockchain is a public ledger of transactions and when you transact with third parties using ETN, users of the ETN blockchain independently verify the validity of your transactions. In doing so the data relating to your transactions, including your public key, is shared with each user of the ETN blockchain.
5.4 We do not control the ongoing state of ETN’s blockchain as this is determined by the transactions made between users. Although we facilitate the processing of these transactions through the use of our Services and Digital Content, we are in no way a party to them.
5.5 As a company, we do not store, sell, send or receive ETN on behalf of users. Our services facilitate the sending and receiving of ETN between users.
6 ETN TRANSACTIONS
6.1 Due to the nature of ETN blockchain, ETN transactions cannot be reversed or cancelled. We will not be responsible for any loss or damage suffered by you for transactions executed by you or any third party including (but not limited to):
6.1.1 sending ETN to the incorrect recipient;
6.1.2 sending a recipient the incorrect amount of ETN in respect of any transaction;
6.1.3 failing to include a payment ID with a transaction; or
6.1.4 any other error.

Although some cryptocurrency exchanges may support trading prices up to 6 decimal places, our Services and Digital Content do not permit you to withdraw or transfer less than 0.01 ETN in any single transaction.
8 TRADING CONSIDERATIONS
8.1 ETN is traded on cryptocurrency exchanges worldwide. We have no involvement in trading ETN; our activity is simply limited to the facilitation of sending and receiving ETN. There are many factors that you should consider before trading ETN, for example the prospects of price fluctuation, risk to your capital and market illiquidity. Past performance is not an indication of future performance and the value of ETN may go down as well as up.
8.2 Your use of ETN on a cryptocurrency exchange will be subject to that exchange’s terms of service, which is out of our control.
8.3 Although ETN is listed on several cryptocurrency exchanges, we are in no way affiliated with any exchange.
