Associated Risks / Risk of using BITFORT Services / Investment Risk
The use of BITFORT App and Services may entail the following risks:
- Bitcoin transactions are irreversible. The Bitcoins you buy will be sent to your BITFORT wallet or to the Bitcoin address provided by you. If you lose or delete your own bitcoin wallet, you will lose your Bitcoins in it and the same cannot be restored later.
- Bitcoin value is volatile and keeps on increasing or decreasing. Bitcoins are subject to large swings in value and may even become worthless. There is an inherent risk that losses will occur as a result of buying, selling or trading in Bitcoins.
- Bitcoin is an as-yet autonomous and largely unregulated worldwide system of value transfer between individuals. It is not backed by any government or central bank backed currencies.
- There is also the risk of loss of confidence in Bitcoin trading, which could collapse demand relative to supply. For example, confidence might collapse in Bitcoin because of unexpected changes imposed by the software developers, the creation of superior competing alternatives, a deflationary or inflationary spiral, or due to governmental actions. Confidence might also collapse because of technical problems, for instance, if the anonymity of the system is compromised, or if any entity is able to prevent any transactions from settling.
You should carefully assess whether your financial situation and tolerance for risk is suitable for buying, selling or trading Bitcoins.
We use our banking service providers only for the receipt of client money and making payments. Our banking service providers do not transfer Bitcoins, exchange Bitcoins, or provide any services in connection with Bitcoins.
