I. Risk warning
The core purpose of this Agreement is that users, after leasing corresponding shares of CITEX’s computing power products, can obtain Filecoin mining revenue after Filecoin main net is launched. By building CITEX mine for centralized management, CITEX maximizes revenue of computing power products’ lease users and CITEX. We will try to avoid the possibility of users’ loss, but there are still a lot of uncertainties in the whole digital currency market. Market volatility is quite high. Risks we may face include but are not limited to the following risks. Users choosing to use computing power lease service offered by CITEX shows that they fully understand and are aware of the inherent and unknown risks of computing power lease.
1.1 Policy risk
As the global asset, digital currency presents hazards due to policy changes (such as governments cleaning up mines and closing exchanges) of different countries towards the digital currency market and the subsequent sharp fluctuations of market prices.
1.2 Technical risk
Filecoin technology in blockchain is not fully developed. In the development process following the white paper plan, there may be service interruption or delay caused by potential risks in project operation caused by technical difficulties or technical weaknesses, hacker attack, technical correction or failure of telecommunications sector and other related sectors with information technology dependency on other platforms and enterprise and public institution, website upgrade and banks and other extreme cases such as Filecoin main net launch delay or even launch failure, causing risks of asset loss of CITEX, user and other stakeholders.
1.3 Management risk
Although CITEX team boasts rich management experience and strict risk control, the expected revenue of computing power products in this Agreement still possesses many uncertainties. What’s more, considering that Filecoin mining market is premature and that the official price of Filecoin is not fixed, we can’t guarantee that there will be no problem in the management of Filecoin technical team.
1.4 Other risks
The appearance of wars, natural disasters and other force majeure factors as well as other unpredictable crises in the market may lead to the asset loss of users. Such risks include natural disasters (typhoon, flood, mudslide, etc.), policy impact (policy issued by the country, etc.), social risks such as wars, discontinuity or instability of power supply, equipment failure, sharp fluctuations of virtual wealth value, changes of whole network computing power, equipment management accidents and the appearance of other inherent and unpredictable crises. The existence of the above risks will directly or indirectly affect the revenue generated by the computing power which is leased by users. Therefore, CITEX can’t guarantee that users can recover all or part of the costs paid by its lease computing power and extraneous generated revenue.
