BITPACE EARN TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Published on 20.04.2022
PLEASE READ THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CAREFULLY.
These Bitpace Earn terms and conditions, as amended, restated or supplemented from time to time (“Terms and Conditions”), set out the terms of the contract between you and SG Veteris Europe EOOD ( "SGV" "or" "we" or us or "Bitpace" ) for engaging in Bitpace Earn (defined below). The term “you” or “your” refers to the merchant agreeing to these Terms and Conditions.
Prior to deciding to enter Bitpace Earn, you should thoroughly consider your objectives, financial situation, level of experience and risk appetite. You should not engage in Bitpace Earn unless you fully understand the risks associated with it and the extent of your exposure to such risks. You should also be satisfied that Bitpace Earn is suitable for you in light of your circumstances and financial position.
Among other risks, and besides the risks related to cryptocurrencies generally, Bitpace Earn may require a lockup or “vesting” period, which can be a disadvantage, as you will not be able to trade the tokens during this period even if prices move. Therefore, you should consult with your own independent advisors on whether to participate in Bitpace Earn.
2. Bitpace Earn
We may choose to designate for inclusion under Bitpace Earn from time to time certain cryptocurrencies, which are subject to change and/or limitation at our sole discretion ( “Eligible Cryptocurrency” ).
Subject to applicable law and these Terms and Conditions, while you hold or commit an Eligible Cryptocurrency with Bitpace (for a fixed period or flexible period, as applicable) ( “Committed Cryptocurrency” ), you may earn interest and/or other rewards ( “Reward” ) with Bitpace, following the interest rates or list of rewards published, or as otherwise communicated by Bitpace from time to time ( “Bitpace Earn” ). Please note that Bitpace Earn is not an investment program nor a speculative tool.
Unless otherwise specified, the corresponding Reward will be added to your Bitpace Earn in the same Eligible Cryptocurrency as the Committed Cryptocurrency.
Please refer to https://merchant.bitpace.com/earn to verify the available Reward per Eligible Cryptocurrency and the relevant periods or other terms and conditions applicable to such Reward. The Reward may be expressed in an Annual Percentage Yield ( “APY” ), which indicates the interest you can earn on your Committed Cryptocurrency over one year. APY considers the effects of compounding interest which is the interest that you may earn from the original Committed Cryptocurrency and the interest earned from it.
You may exit Bitpace Earn (or part thereof) at any time and request that Bitpace return to you all or part (as applicable) of the Committed Cryptocurrencies and deliver any Reward accrued from Bitpace Earn, in each case, by transferring them to your non-earned wallet under our prevailing procedures.

(iv) Bitpace does not guarantee any proceeds under any Bitpace Earn;
