Pocket Wallet is a non-custodial Wallet software, for digital assets such as cryptocurrencies, virtual commodities and NFTs (“Digital Assets”), meaning you are solely in control of and responsible for your Digital Assets and private keys, and accordingly you can authorize transactions from your Wallet address. You expressly acknowledge and agree that as Pocket Wallet is a non-custodial Wallet software, you are solely responsible for your activity and any risk of loss at all times.
Pocket Wallet allows you to:
- generate Wallet addresses and associated private keys that you may use to send and receive digital assets;
- browse and access third party decentralized application(s) (“DApp(s)”) and third party decentralized exchanges (“DEX”) through the mobile application’s web browser;
- swap/trade digital assets through DApp functionality made available by third party service provider(s);
- stake certain digital assets in a third party ‘proof of stake’ network through staking services (“Staking Service”);
- view digital asset price information made available by third party service provider(s); and
- broadcast Digital Asset Transaction data to various blockchains supported by Pocket Wallet without requiring you to download or install the associated blockchain-based software to your local device.
Wallet Address, Private Key, and Backup Capabilities
An encrypted backup of certain information associated with your Wallet can be stored on eligible devices. The private key is associated with the Wallet address and, together, they can be used to authorize the transfer of Digital Assets to and from that Wallet address. You are solely responsible for the retention and security of your private key and any mnemonic phrase (“Secret Phrase”) associated with your Wallet. You must keep your Wallet address, Secret Phrase, and private key access information secure. It is very important that you backup your private keys, backup phrases or passwords. Failure to do so may result in the loss of control of Digital Assets associated with your Wallet. You acknowledge and agree that we do not receive or store your Wallet password, encrypted private key, unencrypted private key, or Secret Phrase associated with your Wallet. We cannot generate a new password for your Wallet if you fail to remember your original password. If you have not safely stored a backup of any Wallet address and private key pairs maintained in your Wallet, you accept and acknowledge that any Digital Assets you have associated with such Wallet address will become inaccessible. Accordingly, we shall have no responsibility or liability whatsoever in the event you are unable to access your Wallet for any reason including without limitation your failure to keep your Wallet address, Secret Phrase and private key information secure.
Use of DApps and DEX
If you access or use DApps or DEX, including, without limitation, DApp functionality embedded within the Services such as the Trade/Swap Digital Assets function, you acknowledge and agree that: (i) Pocket Wallet is not responsible for your access or use of DApps or DEX and shall have no liability whatsoever in connection with your use of DApps or DEX, including, without limitation, any transactions you dispute; (ii) the limits of amounts that you may exchange via DEX per day shall be subject to any requirements of the third-party developed Smart Contracts; (iii) blockchain operations are irrevocable meaning when you conduct any transactions via DApps or DEX, you shall be solely responsible for the consequences of any issues associated with such transactions, including, without limitation, your transfer to an incorrect address or problems associated with the node servers selected by you; (iv) when you use DApps or DEX, third-party developed Smart Contracts may charge you handling fees and/or service fees and any information displayed on Pocket Wallet relating to such fees are for your reference only as Pocket Wallet cannot and does not guarantee its accuracy, applicability, reliability, integrity or appropriateness, nor shall Pocket Wallet be liable for any loss or damage that may be caused directly or indirectly by your use of these contents; and (v) Pocket Wallet does not currently charge any service fees or handling fees for the use of DApps or DEX, however, Pocket Wallet may, in its discretion, charge such fees at any time in the future. Any updated fees will apply to any transaction that occurs following the effective date of the updated fees.
Use of Staking Service
If you access or use the Staking Service, a third party may stake certain Digital Assets on your behalf (“Staked Digital Assets”), acting as a transaction validator on the applicable blockchain network. If a block of transactions is successfully validated using such Staked Digital Assets, a reward is granted by that network (“Staking Reward”). You acknowledge and agree that Pocket Wallet is not responsible for: (i) your use of the Staking Service and shall have no liability whatsoever in connection with your use of the Staking Service; (ii) ensuring Staking will occur on a continuous basis; and (iii) ensuring any particular Digital Asset will be staked or will continue to be staked.
Buy Digital Assets with Supported Credit or Debit Cards
If you use Pocket Wallet to purchase Digital Assets with your credit or debit card, a third party will convert your chosen amount into the applicable Digital Asset and credit it to your Wallet. You acknowledge and agree that: (i) Pocket Wallet is not responsible for your use of such third party service and shall have no liability whatsoever in connection with your use of such service; (ii) you will be subject to any terms and conditions imposed by the relevant third party service provider; (iii) Pocket Wallet has no ability to change, withdraw or cancel any conversion requests you place; (iv) Pocket Wallet is not responsible for any exchange rates offered by the relevant third party service provider(s); and (v) Pocket Wallet is not responsible for any fees charged by the relevant third party service provider(s) or your bank or credit card issuer(s).
Digital Asset Transactions
In order for all proposed Digital Asset transactions to be completed, they must be confirmed and recorded in the Digital Asset’s associated public blockchain. Such networks are decentralized, peer-to-peer networks supported by independent third parties, which we do not own, control, or operate. We have no control over the blockchain networks and, therefore, cannot and do not ensure that any transaction details that you submit via our Services will be confirmed and processed. By using Pocket Wallet, you acknowledge and agree that: (i) we do not have the ability to cancel or otherwise modify your transaction; (ii) the transaction details you submit may not be completed, or may be substantially delayed, by the applicable blockchain networks; (iii) we do not store, send, or receive Digital Assets; and (iv) any transfer that occurs in relation to any Digital Asset occurs on the relevant blockchain network and not on a network owned by us and therefore we do not guarantee the transfer of title or right in any Digital Asset.
Accuracy of Information Provided by User
You represent and warrant that any information you provide via the Services is accurate and complete. You accept and acknowledge that we are not responsible for any errors or omissions that you make in connection with any Digital Asset transaction initiated via the Services. We strongly encourage you to review your transaction details carefully before attempting to transfer a Digital Asset.
WALLET REGISTRATION AND SECURITY
You must either import or create a Wallet in order to use Pocket Wallet. When you create a Wallet, you will be assigned a private key. You agree to immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your private key or any other breach of security of your Wallet. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you acknowledge and agree that you shall assume all risks related to the use of the Services and you shall be solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality and security of your private key. When you create a Wallet, you are strongly advised to take precautions in order to avoid loss of access to and/or control over your Wallet. Suggested measures include, but are not limited to, the following: (a) creating a strong unique password that you do not use for any other purpose (i.e. different to your phone password or any other passwords you use for websites, online services, etc.) and leveraging biometric authentication if available; (b) do not store the private key and Secret Phrase in plain text online or in an unsecured physical location; (c) limiting access to your devices and your Wallet; (d) taking all necessary precautions against malware on your devices and networks; and (e) promptly notifying us if you discover or otherwise suspect any security breaches related to your Wallet. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, we shall have no liability whatsoever in connection with activities that occur on your Wallet with or without your authorization.
You may agree to receive push notifications from Pocket Wallet that will alert you when blockchain networks supported by Pocket Wallet are congested and when transactions involving your Wallet have been completed. If you would like to receive push notifications, you must opt in to the service by accessing “Settings” and enabling “Push Notifications”.
Payment and Fees
Fees applicable to the Services or any component of the Services, if any, shall be set forth at pocketwallet.app and/or the Pocket Wallet mobile application.
There may be transaction fees (e.g. mining fees) associated with your virtual currency transactions that are required by the virtual currency system or blockchain network that you engage with. You must ensure that you have an adequate balance in your Wallet and/or “gas” to complete transactions before initiating a transaction. You acknowledge and agree that we will not be liable for any failed transactions or losses you incur due to incorrectly set transaction fees (i.e. too low or too high) or due to insufficient funds or gas associated with your Wallet address. You further acknowledge and agree that we do not have access to your or anyone else’s transactions.
It is your responsibility to determine what, if any, taxes apply to the transactions that you have submitted transaction details for via the Services, and it is your responsibility to report and remit the correct tax to the appropriate tax authority.
