6.	Services

6.1	Minting / Inscriptions / Collections

6.1.1	By creating, minting or inscribing an Ordinal or Collection independently via the Website,
you acknowledge and agree that you are solely responsible for any legal, financial, or
other consequences arising from your actions. You assume all risks associated with the
creation, ownership, and transfer of the Ordinal, and hereby disclaim and release us from any and all liability, claims, damages, or losses, whether direct or indirect, arising
from your minting or inscribing of Ordinals.

6.1.2	The Creator of an Ordinal or Collection may elect to have a Minting Fee paid to them on every minting of an Ordinal that they create via the Website. The Minting Fee will be deducted from the Bitcoin deposited by a User in connection with the minting of the Ordinal and paid directly to its
Creator. You understand that the Minting Fee is not set, collected nor determined by
InscribeNow. You also understand and accept that the metadata that allows the Minting Fee
to be paid to a Creator may not be supported by other Website or Ordinals marketplaces,
and it is possible that the Minting Fee may only apply to a minting of the Ordinal on the
Website.

6.1.3	We may allow you to list new or already-minted Collections on the Website through the upload of one or more JSON files. You understand and accept that we do not make any
representation or warranty with respect of any open-source software that the Website may
link you to for the extraction of JSON files. In particular, InscribeNow shall not be held liable
for any diminishment in the quality, resolution, or fidelity of the Collections resulting from
the upload of JSON files to the Website, and shall not have any duty or authority to verify
the accuracy of the syntax or JSON file before a Collection is uploaded to the Website.

6.1.4	InscribeNow expressly disclaims any liability for its decision to support updates to the main Ordinals block explorer, developments, proposed improvements to the Ordinals Protocol, and/or mint limits and rarities on the Website.

6.1.5	You understand that the Services are provided to Users on an "as is", “where is”, “if applicable” and “where available” basis.

6.1.6	In respect of the minting of recursive Ordinals or other similar new inscription standards, you understand that vulnerabilities may arise in respect of or in relation to how such Ordinals interact with your Third-Party Wallet, and you undertake to bear any such liability and indemnify InscribeNow in full for any claims against InscribeNow that may arise from your decision to mint/inscribe and/or distribute such Ordinal and/or Collection.

6.1.7	You understand that inscribed satoshis can be accidentally spent, whether as Network Fees or deducted from your Third-Party Wallet as Fees. You are strongly advised to ensure that the Third-Party Wallet that you use on our Website to mint/inscribe an Ordinal is separate from the Third-Party Wallet that you use to receive and store your Ordinals. You agree that you bear all responsibility and liability if you spend part or all of an Ordinal while using the Services, and that InscribeNow does not have any obligation, whether implied or otherwise, to notify you of any such possibility.

6.1.8	You agree that if the Third-Party Wallet that you use on our Website to receive an Ordinal is different from the Third-Party Wallet that you use on our Website to deposit Bitcoin in connection with the minting or inscribing of the Ordinal, the beneficial owner of both such Third-Party Wallets shall be the same person.

6.1.9	The Parties agree that InscribeNow shall immediately deliver an Ordinal to a Third-Party Wallet under your sole control, following receipt of Bitcoin deposited by you in connection with your minting or inscribing of the Ordinal via the Website, according to our usual commercial practice and in accordance with our obligations under Applicable Laws.

6.1.10	InscribeNow reserves the right to vary the scope and provision of the minting/inscription Services and may suspend or terminate the minting/inscription Services or any part of the minting/inscription Services, at its discretion and without prior notice to you.

6.2	Whitelist


6.2.1	InscribeNow may provide a whitelist feature, which allows Users to mint Ordinals or allow other Users to mint Ordinals from a Collection ahead of its public sale. InscribeNow shall not be held liable for any errors, omissions, inaccuracies, or incompatibilities in the
Addresses that you submit to a whitelist. You are solely responsible for ensuring the
accuracy, correctness, and compatibility of the Third-Party Wallet details that you submit to a Collection’s whitelist. You understand and accept that InscribeNow shall not provide compensation or be held liable for any losses, damages, or harm incurred due to errors, inaccuracies, or incompatibilities in the Third-Party Wallet details provided by you. It is your sole responsibility to verify the accuracy and validity of the Addresses that you submit for whitelisting. You are encouraged to double-check and cross-verify all Addresses that you submit to Collection’s whitelist in order to mitigate any potential risks.

6.2.2	InscribeNow provides the whitelist feature on an “as is” and “where is” basis, and does not guarantee that the whitelist feature will be without any bug, defect, or error. You agree that InscribeNow shall not assume any liability for any failures in the whitelist feature, or any delays relating to or caused by the whitelist feature.

6.3	User Generated Content

6.3.1	The Website contains interactive features which allow Users to post, submit, publish, display, or transmit, content or materials to other Users or other persons (collectively, the “User Generated Content”) on or through the Website, whether as an Ordinal or otherwise. All User Generated Content must comply with the Prohibited Use provisions set out in Section 5 of these Terms.

6.3.2	InscribeNow does not have any control over User Generated Content, and does not endorse any User Generated Content.

6.3.3	It is your sole responsibility to ascertain the authenticity, legality, identity, and other pertinent details of any Ordinal or Collection that you encounter or interact with through our Website. We do not provide any assurances, guarantees, or endorsements regarding the identity, legitimacy, or authenticity of any Ordinal or Collection available on the Website.

6.3.4	By creating and/or listing Ordinal(s) on the Website, you represent and warrant that the Ordinal(s) do(es) not contain any content that breaches the Prohibited Use provisions set out in Section 5 of these Terms. In particular, you represent and warrant that you have, or have obtained, all rights, licenses, consents, permissions, power and/or authorizations necessary for you to create/mint/inscribe, submit, sell, or display the Ordinal(s) through the Services, and that by doing so, you have not and/or will not infringe or misappropriate the intellectual property or proprietary rights of others. You are solely responsible for the content and metadata associated with the Ordinal(s) that you create/mint/inscribe and/or list on the Website.

6.3.5	By creating and/or listing the Ordinal(s) on the Website, you hereby grant InscribeNow a limited license to use a photographic image, animation, or representation of the Ordinal(s) for the purposes of selling and promoting the Ordinal(s), including but not limited to uploading the Ordinal(s) on the Website, carrying out marketing efforts such as social media posts, blog posts, news articles, events and conferences, and videos, and authorizing third parties to use the photographic image, animation, or representation of the Ordinal(s) for marketing purposes (where applicable).

6.3.6	These Terms govern the use of our Services. Ordinals are publicly available on the Bitcoin blockchain, and may be created/minted/inscribed, purchased, sold, or transferred between a buyer, seller, and/or Creator directly without the use of our Services, without said parties agreeing to or having notice of our Terms. Accordingly, there may be additional terms and conditions that apply to each specific Ordinal and/or Ordinals Collection, which are set directly between buyers, sellers, and/or Creators, and these additional terms and conditions may specify conditions over the use of the Ordinal
content and the rights and obligations associated with a given Ordinal ("Ordinal-specific
Terms"). For example, when you click to get more details about any of the Ordinal or
Collections visible on InscribeNow or view the Ordinal’s metadata, you may notice a
third-party link to or text containing Ordinal-specific Terms governing the use of the
Ordinal that you must comply with. InscribeNow and/or its Affiliates do not determine the
Ordinal-specific Terms and are not a party to any such Ordinal-specific Terms, which are solely between the buyer, seller, and/or Creator. The buyer, seller, and/or Creator are entirely responsible for communicating, agreeing to, and enforcing the Ordinal-specific Terms. By creating, inscribing, minting, buying, selling, or transferring such an Ordinal, you bear sole responsibility for specifying, reviewing, and complying with such
Ordinal-specific Terms.

6.4	Listing Takedown Requests

6.4.1	We are under no obligation to edit or control User Generated Content, and will not be in any way responsible or liable for User Generated Content. By using and/or accessing the Services, you understand, accept, and waive all liability that InscribeNow may have in respect of the content or materials that make up User Generated Content.
6.4.2	As the Services rely on a content-addressable
decentralized data storage method, all mints/inscriptions and orders are self-authenticating - this means that InscribeNow has no control over Users’ actions in the
event that they upload multiple Ordinal listing(s) to the Website that are allegedly infringing material, after the first Ordinal listing(s) have been removed pursuant to a Listing Takedown Request.

6.4.3	We may, however, at any time and without prior notice, screen, remove, edit, or block any User Generated Content that in our sole judgement violates these Terms, is alleged to violate the rights of third parties, or is otherwise objectionable.

6.4.4	When using the Services, you will be exposed to User Generated Content from a variety of sources and acknowledge that the User Generated Content may be inaccurate, offensive, indecent, or objectionable.

21.	ANNEX 1 – RISK FACTORS & DISCLAIMERS


You should carefully consider and evaluate each of the following risk factors and all other information contained in these Terms before deciding to use any of the Services. To the best of our knowledge and belief, the risk factors which are material to you in making an informed judgment to use the Services have been set out below.

21.1	RISKS RELATING TO THE WEBSITE

1.	We may experience system failures, unplanned interruptions in our network or
services, hardware or software defects, security breaches or other causes that could
adversely affect our infrastructure network, and/or the Website

We are unable to anticipate when there would be occurrences of Network Attacks & Vulnerabilities in the InscribeNow Website, Supported Digital Assets, Third-Party Wallets, or any technology on which we, the InscribeNow Website, our industry partners, Supported Digital Assets or Third-Party Wallets rely, or any other network associated with the Services. Such events may include, for example, flaws in programming or source code leading to exploitation or abuse thereof. We may not be able to detect such Network Attacks & Vulnerabilities in a timely manner and may not have sufficient resources to efficiently cope with multiple service incidents happening simultaneously or in rapid succession.
Our Services could be disrupted by numerous events, including natural disasters, equipment breakdown, network connectivity downtime, power losses, or even intentional disruptions of our Services, such as disruptions caused by software viruses or attacks by unauthorized Users, some of which are beyond our control. Although we have taken steps to guard against malicious attacks on our appliances and infrastructure, which are critical for the maintenance of the Website and the
Services, there can be no assurance that Network Attacks & Vulnerabilities will not be attempted in the future, and that any of our enhanced security measures will be effective. We may be prone to attacks on our infrastructure intended to steal information about technology, financial data or user information or take other actions that would be damaging to us and Users. Any significant breach of our security measures or other disruptions resulting in a compromise of the usability, stability and security of our network or Services (including the Website) may adversely affect the public confidence in our network or Services.

2.	We are dependent on third parties in respect of the provision of Services


As we may rely on Third-Party service provider(s), such as software services providers, and intermediaries to provide Services, if such Third-Party service provider(s) experience system failures, unplanned interruptions in its network or services, hardware or software defects, security breaches or other causes that could adversely affect their infrastructure network, this would disrupt our provision of the Services.

3.	We are dependent in part on the location and data center facilities of third parties


Our infrastructure network is in part established on servers which are owned or housed at the location facilities of Third-Parties, and/or servers that we rent at data center facilities of Third-Parties. If we are unable to maintain such network on commercially reasonable terms or at all, we may be required to transfer our services to a new data center facility, and may incur significant costs and possible service interruption in connection with the relocation. These facilities are also vulnerable to damage or interruption from, among others, natural disasters, arson, terrorist attacks, power losses, and telecommunication failures. Additionally, the Third-Party providers of such facilities may suffer a breach of security as a result of Third-Party action, employee error, malfeasance or otherwise, and a Third-Party may obtain unauthorized access to the data in such servers. As techniques used to obtain unauthorized access to, or to sabotage systems change frequently and generally are not recognized until launched against a target, InscribeNow and/or its Affiliates and the providers of such facilities may be unable to anticipate these techniques or to implement adequate preventive measures.

4.	Legality of the Services and/or Supported Digital Assets may be subject to
clarification, implementation or change

The Applicable Laws in relation to the Services and/or the Supported Digital Assets in various jurisdictions may be uncertain and/or subject to clarification, implementation, or change. In the event of such clarification, implementation or change, the availability of the Services and/or the Supported
Digital Assets (in connection with the Services) may be adversely affected, including but not limited to the suspension or deactivation of the Services and/or the availability of the Supported Digital Assets (in connection with the Services). We may also have to take measures to comply with such regulations, or have to deal with queries,
notices, requests or enforcement actions by regulatory authorities, which may come at a substantial cost and may also require substantial modifications to the Website. This may impact the appeal of the Website for users and result in decreased usage of the Website.
Further, should the costs (financial or otherwise) of complying with such newly implemented regulations exceed a certain threshold, maintaining the Website may no longer be commercially viable and we may opt to suspend or discontinue the Services. Further, it is difficult to predict how or whether governments or regulatory authorities may clarify, implement, or change any Applicable Laws affecting digital ledger technology and its applications, including the Services. We may also have to cease operations in a jurisdiction that makes it illegal to operate in such jurisdiction, or
make it commercially unviable or undesirable to obtain the necessary regulatory approval(s) to operate in such jurisdiction.

5.	Certain parts of our work and processes may risk being disrupted by new technologies that may emerge and have a disruptive effect on certain parts of our work and processes. In particular, blockchain and digital ledger technology is rapidly developing and evolving, and technological advancements may render certain or all parts of our work and processes obsolete and ineffective. This may have an adverse effect on the demand for or the availability of the Services and the Supported Digital Assets.

6.	The InscribeNow Website, Third-Party Wallets and the Supported Digital Assets are exposed to risk of attacks

While we will make every effort to ensure that Website are secure, there is no assurance that the InscribeNow Website, Third-Party Wallets, or the Supported Digital Assets, will not be subject to Network Attacks & Vulnerabilities. Such events may occur as a result of, for example, flaws in programming or source code leading to exploitation or abuse thereof. In such event(s), the Services may be disrupted and/or the Supported Digital Assets may even be stolen or diverted to a different address. Unless you specifically obtain private insurance to insure your Supported Digital Assets, you may not have any recourse as a result of such loss of Supported Digital Assets.

7.	There may be unanticipated risks arising from the use of the Website and/or the Services

The technologies involving the inscription of Ordinals, BRC-20, CBRC-20, Runes and other similar experimental token standards that have been developed as a method of sending fungible tokens using the Ordinals protocol, and other Services-related consensus protocols are novel, experimental, and speculative, and therefore there is significant uncertainty regarding the application of and viability of such technology. In addition to the risks included hereto, there are other risks associated with your use of the Services, including those that we cannot anticipate. Such risks may further materialize as
unanticipated variations or combinations of the risks discussed hereto.

21.2	GENERAL RISKS RELATING TO CRYPTOGRAPHIC TOKENS

1.	Risk associated with Ordinals inscriptions


The Ordinals protocol is a system for numbering satoshis, giving each satoshi a serial number and tracking them across transactions. Simply put, the Ordinals protocol allows users to make individual satoshis unique by attaching extra data to them. This process is known as “inscription”. It is possible for developers to insert “bugs”, “errors”, or “exploits” into a blockchain’s open-source code or components. For example, for the Ordinals protocol, it is possible for a satoshi that a user does not own to be inscribed without the owner’s consent. While this bug can be fixed by making the Ordinals protocol ignore the inscription, this would change the inscription numbers following that inscription. While this does not affect the function of the Ordinals protocol per se, it is possible that inscription numbers affect the value and rarity of an Ordinal. Accordingly, it is possible that such “bugs”, “errors”, or “exploits” that are inserted by developers into a blockchain’s open-source code or components will affect the value, rarity, and existence of your Ordinals. Additionally, the technology and operational systems around Ordinals are still developing, and may have technical and financial weaknesses that are presently untested.

2.	Risk associated with experimental Ordinals inscription standards


The Ordinals protocol is distinct from experimental Ordinals inscription standards such as BRC-20. Experimental Ordinals inscription standards include experimental fungible token standards that use Ordinal inscriptions on Bitcoin, such as BRC-20, CBRC-20, ORC-20, SRC-20, and Runes. In general, experimental Ordinals inscription standards do not use smart contracts like popular token standards on EVM blockchains – rather, such standards enable users to store a script file on Bitcoin and use that to attribute tokens to individual satoshis. In general, experimental Ordinals inscription standards employ JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) Ordinals inscriptions to initiate token contracts (which are still simplistic as smart contract functionality has yet to be developed), create new tokens and move tokens around. At the time of the drafting of this Annex 1, experimental Ordinals inscription standards have very limited functionality compared to ERC-20. Users of experimental Ordinals inscription standards are presently limited to only minting, deploying, and transferring tokens. Unlike ERC-20, there are neither approved standards for Ordinals inscriptions, nor do such experimental Ordinals inscription standards dominate present market share. Most experimental Ordinals inscription standards are still in the proposal phase. Additionally, unlike ERC-20 tokens, experimental fungible token standards that use Ordinal inscriptions on Bitcoin, such as BRC-20, CBRC-20, ORC-20, SRC-20 and Runes tokens, are not easily traded on exchanges at this time. Additionally, while experimental Ordinals inscription standards utilize the Ordinals protocol, not all Ordinals are compatible with each individual experimental inscription standard. There is no guarantee that tokens created using experimental fungible token standards will continue to be supported in the future or that exchanges will recognize or continue to recognize and support Ordinals created using experimental Ordinals inscription standards. Additionally, certain Ordinals are inscribed with off-blockchain systems that are not part of Bitcoin Core or activated in consensus with the Bitcoin network - i.e. maintained by a centralized group of
developers. This means that there is a possibility that this centralized group of developers might arbitrarily change settings in the future, disrupt software, or misdirect file storage hashes.

3.	Risk associated with utilizing Third-Party Wallets to spend satoshis


Ordinals can be sent to any Bitcoin address, and are safe as long as the UTXO that contains them is not spent. However, if that wallet is then used to send Bitcoin, it may select the UTXO containing the Ordinal as an input, and send the inscription or spend it as fees.

Most Third-Party Wallets presently offer no or partial support for Ordinals. Users may accidentally send or burn valuable Ordinals if they commingle these Ordinals with their BTC in incompatible Third-Party Wallets.

By choosing to utilize Third-Party Wallets for your Supported Digital Asset transactions, it is imperative that you exercise due diligence by thoroughly researching and evaluating the security, reputation, and reliability of the wallet provider. You should review factors such as their track record, security measures implemented, regulatory compliance, user reviews, and any potential risks associated with the specific wallet services offered. Conducting your own due diligence is crucial to ensure the protection of your Supported Digital Assets, mitigate potential risks, and make informed decisions regarding the storage and transfer of your Supported Digital Assets.

4.	There is no assurance of an active or liquid market for Supported Digital Assets


There is no assurance that an active or liquid market for the Supported Digital Assets will continue to remain or develop. As such, there is no assurance that your Supported Digital Assets will have any value. The Supported Digital Assets are not a currency issued by any central bank or national, supra-national or quasi-national organization, nor are they backed by any hard assets or other credit. Sale and purchase of the Supported Digital Assets depends on the consensus on their value between the relevant market participants, there is no guarantee as to the liquidity or market price of
the Supported Digital Assets to any extent at any time.

5.	The trading price of the Supported Digital Assets may fluctuate


The prices of Digital Assets in general tend to be relatively volatile, and can fluctuate significantly over short periods of time. The volatility and unpredictability of the price of Supported Digital Assets may result in significant or all loss of your investments over a short period of time. The demand for, and correspondingly the market price of, the Supported Digital Assets may fluctuate significantly and rapidly in response to, among others, the following factors:


•	new technical innovations;
•	analysts’ speculations, recommendations, perceptions or estimates of the Supported Digital Asset’s market price;
•	changes in market valuations and token prices of entities with operations similar to that of such Supported Digital Assets;
•	announcements of significant events, for example partnerships, sponsorships, new product developments;
•	fluctuations in market prices and trading volume of the Supported Digital Assets on
cryptocurrency exchanges;
•	the availability of the Supported Digital Assets on other cryptocurrency exchanges; and
•	changes in conditions affecting the blockchain or financial technology industry, the general economic conditions or market sentiments, or other events or factors.

6.	Understanding cryptographic token technology requires technical knowledge


Cryptographic tokens are complex and are often described in exceedingly technical language that may require a comprehensive understanding of applied cryptography and computer science in order to appreciate the inherent risks.

The availability of Supported Digital Assets on the InscribeNow platform does not indicate approval or disapproval of the underlying technology regarding any Supported Digital Assets, and should not be used as a substitute for your own understanding of the risks specific to each Supported Digital Asset. We give you no undertaking or warranty as to the suitability of the Supported Digital Assets under these Terms and assume no duty in our relations with you. By using the Services, you acknowledge and agree that you have a basic degree of understanding of the operation, functionality, usage, storage, transmission mechanisms, and other material characteristics of digital ledger and blockchain assets, cryptographic tokens including the Supported Digital Assets, digital ledger and blockchain-based software systems, cryptographic token wallets or
other related token storage mechanisms, digital ledger and blockchain technology, the Ordinals Protocol, and smart contract technologies.

7.	None of the information available on the Website or made available to you in relation to
the use of Services constitutes advice

None of the information available on the Website or made available to you in relation to the use of Services constitutes any advice, including but not limited to legal, tax, financial or trading advice. If you are in any doubt as to the action you should take, you should consult your legal, financial, tax or other professional advisors.

8.	Digital Asset transfers may not be reversible

Transactions which have been signed by the transferor and verified on a digital ledger or blockchain network are generally immutable and effectively irreversible. In the event that you send Digital Assets to any other destination, such Digital Assets may not be returned. In particular, due to the
way in which Ordinals are inscribed, such transfers will carry a risk that your Ordinals will be lost.
Only experienced Users with knowledge of UTXO management should attempt it. If you are not confident in managing UTXOs, it's best to avoid transferring your Ordinals.
InscribeNow and/or its Affiliates do not assume any responsibility or make any warranties or
undertakings and shall have no obligation to you if any of the foregoing events occur, including but not limited to any responsibility to recover, or aid / assist in the recovery, of such Digital Assets.

9.	Risks related to Digital Assets


Digital Assets and their underlying technologies face a number of intrinsic risks due to their entirely digital nature and structure, including but not limited to:

•	faults, defects, hacks, exploits, errors, protocol failures or unforeseen circumstances
occurring in respect of a Digital Asset or the technologies or economic systems on which the Digital Asset rely. Digital Assets held in custodial wallets, as well as the protocol or technologies on which a Digital Asset depends, remain vulnerable to hacking;
•	transactions in Digital Assets are permanent and irreversible, and any losses that you may suffer due to fraudulent, accidental, or erroneous transactions may not be recoverable;
•	the decentralized nature of the blockchain, which means that we have no regulation or control over any failure, mistake, error and/or breach which shall occur on the blockchain or on any other networks in which the Digital Assets are being issued and/or traded;
•	delays causing transactions to not be settled on the scheduled delivery date; and
•	The underlying protocols of the Digital Assets may be subject to sudden changes in
operating rules (known as Forks). Such Forks may materially affect the value, function,
and/or even the name of the Digital Asset, and we may not be able to support certain forked Digital Assets on our platform.

10.	Legal and Regulatory Risks


To the extent that InscribeNow may be required to obtain licenses, permits and/or approvals (collectively, the “Regulatory Approvals”) in any jurisdiction to offer any services, but are unable to obtain such Regulatory Approvals, or if such Regulatory Approvals are not renewed or are revoked for whatever reason by the relevant authorities, the Users in such jurisdiction will be unable to access the services provided on the InscribeNow Platform, or there may be changes to the scope of services provided to users from certain jurisdictions
