Securities Products; No Professional Advice Provided. The securities offered on the Site are only suitable for investors who are familiar with and willing to accept the high risks associated with private investments, including the risk of complete loss of your investment. Securities sold through private placements are not publicly traded and, therefore, are illiquid unless registered with the SEC. Additionally, securities may be subject to restrictions on resale or transfer including holding period requirements. Investing in private placements requires high risk tolerance, low liquidity need, and long-term commitments. Users must be able to afford to lose their entire investment. Investment products are not FDIC insured, may lose value, and there is no bank guarantee. None of the information contained on the Site or provided through the Services constitutes a recommendation, solicitation or offer by GTC, its affiliates or third-parties to buy or sell any securities, futures, options or other financial instruments or other assets or provide any investment advice or service. All information contained in the Services has been prepared without reference to any particular User’s investment requirements or financial situation. The Services are not provided to, and may not be used by, any person or entity in any jurisdiction where the provision or use thereof would be contrary to applicable laws, rules or regulations of any governmental authority, regulatory or self-regulatory organization or clearing organization, or where GTC is not authorized to provide such information or services. Some Services may not be available in all jurisdictions or to all clients. The Services and all content, services and features available through the Services are intended for informational purposes only. They are not intended to substitute for professional investment, financial or legal advice. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU ARE NOT RELYING ON GTC OR ANY OF ITS AFFILIATES, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, PARTNERS, AGENTS, OR EMPLOYEES IN MAKING AN INVESTMENT DECISION. ALWAYS CONSIDER SEEKING THE ADVICE OF A QUALIFIED PROFESSIONAL BEFORE MAKING DECISIONS REGARDING YOUR BUSINESS AND/OR INVESTMENTS. GTC DOES NOT ENDORSE ANY INVESTMENTS AND SHALL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE IN ANY WAY FOR ANY TRANSACTIONS YOU ENTER INTO WITH OTHER USERS. YOU AGREE THAT GTC AND ITS AFFILIATES, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, PARTNERS, AGENTS, OR EMPLOYEES WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGES OF ANY SORT INCURRED AS THE RESULT OF ANY INTERACTIONS BETWEEN YOU AND OTHER USERS. Featuring of or posting on the Site of any offering does not constitute endorsement by GTC or representation of the quality of any potential investment in such offering. GTC does not endorse any Issuer or any underlying assets. The securities being offered have not been registered under the Securities Act, in reliance, among other exemptions, on the exemption provisions of Regulation D and/or Regulation S under the Securities Act. Issuers represent and warrant that each offering is structured to qualify as an exempt investment entity under Section 3(c)(1) of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “Investment Company Act”), which provides an exemption from registration for a private investment company. No assurance can be given that any offering currently qualifies or will continue to qualify under one or more of exemption provisions from registration due to, among other things, the adequacy of disclosure and the manner of distribution, the existence of similar offerings in the past or in the future, or a change of any securities law or regulation that has retroactive effect. No governmental agency has reviewed the offerings posted on the Site and no state or federal agency has passed upon either the adequacy of the disclosure contained herein or the fairness of the terms of any offering. The exemptions relied upon for such offerings are significantly dependent upon the accuracy of the representations of the Users to be made to the Site and issuers posting offerings on the Site in connection with the offering. In the event that any such representations prove to be untrue, the registration exemptions relied upon by an issuer in selling the securities might not be available and substantial liability to such issuer would result under applicable securities laws for rescission or damages. These risks are non-exhaustive and are intended to highlight certain risks associated with investing in securities that are not registered with the SEC. We strongly advise you to consult a legal, tax and financial professional before investing, and carefully review all the specific risk disclosures provided as part of any offering materials AND ASK THE ISSUER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE OR REQUEST ADDITIONAL INFORMATION. GTC receives no commission or transaction-based compensation in connection with the purchase or sale of securities through the Site but may receive fixed fees for services. GTC is not a registered broker-dealer, funding portal, investment adviser or investment manager, and does not offer investment advice or advise on the raising of capital through securities offerings. GTC does not recommend or otherwise suggest that any investor make an investment in a particular offering, or that any Issuer offer securities to a particular Investor. GTC takes no part in the negotiation or execution of transactions for the purchase or sale of securities, and at no time has possession of or access to funds or securities. GTC cannot guarantee that Issuers posting offerings on the Site will use the proceeds of any offering in accordance with the stated purpose. Users acknowledge and agree that GTC makes no representation, warranty or assurance that the offering posted on the Site are made in accordance with Federal and/or state securities law, including the exemption to the sale of unregistered securities, or the legality of any offerings.

GTC Digital Asset Escrow Transaction Process and Acknowledgements
Transmission of Digital Assets: We provides transaction instructions that include a unique, customized QR code and wallet address for transmission of your Digital Assets for a given transaction.
Acceptance of your Transaction and Conversion of Digital Asset to USD: Generally, once per business day, we convert Digital Assets to USD using the facilities of our partner Digital Asset exchanges. Upon conversion, we will calculate your Final Transaction Amount based on the exchange rate we receive less our Digital Asset Handling Fee. Digital Assets received during non-business hours or after 1pm California time (EST or EDT) on a business day will be converted the following business day consistent with the operating hours of our partner Digital Asset exchanges. USD proceeds from conversion of your Digital Assets will be used to calculate an Exchange Rate, inclusive of any exchange fees and transfer fees, that we will apply to your Digital Asset transaction to calculate your individual Gross Conversion Proceeds. We make absolutely no representation and provide no warranties that the conversion price will be the best available price at the time of conversion of your Digital Assets.
Our Digital Asset Handling Fee will be subtracted from your Gross Conversion Proceeds to yield your Final Transaction Amount.
Important: Because the applicable Digital Asset to USD exchange rate can vary significantly from time to time, and even moment to moment, the exact amount of your Final Transaction Amount and any resulting securities you ultimately purchase in this transaction will be reported to you only after we have converted to USD and your transaction has been accepted by all parties.
Calculation of your Final Transaction Amount:
Digital Asset Transaction in Full: Y TRANSMITTING DIGITAL ASSETS USING THE INSTRUCTIONS WE PROVIDE TO YOU, YOU HEREBY AGREE TO INVEST 100% OF THE FINAL TRANSACTION AMOUNT AS DEFINED ABOVE IN THE OFFERING. If the issuer does not accept your transaction in part or in full for any reason, we will issue you a prompt refund of the Digital Assets for the USD equivalent, at then-market conversion prices, to the wallet address from which the Digital Assets originated.
Refunds: If your Digital Asset transaction is not accepted by the issuer, or the offering is canceled prior to acceptance, or if a refund is required for any other reason prior to acceptance, we will issue a prompt refund only in the type of Digital Asset transacted and such refunds will be transmitted only to the wallet address from which the Digital Asset originated. We will not under any circumstances issue a refund in USD for transactions paid with Digital Assets. BY TRANSMITTING DIGITAL ASSETS USING THE INSTRUCTIONS WE PROVIDE TO YOU, YOU HEREBY ACKNOWLEDGE THAT ANY REFUND YOU RECEIVE MAY BE SUBSTANTIALLY REDUCED BY FEES AND BY MARKET VOLATILITY RELATIVE TO YOUR ORIGINAL TRANSACTION. FOR AVOIDANCE OF DOUBT, ANY AND ALL SUCH FEES ARE EXCLUSIVELY PAID BY YOU FROM YOUR REFUND AMOUNT. BY TRANSMITTING DIGITAL ASSETS FOR THIS TRANSACTION, YOU ACCEPT THIS RISK.
Transaction Costs: We make no claim or guarantee that investing in an offering using Digital Assets is economically efficient relative to other payment methods or conversion options available elsewhere. You may pay lower all-in fees by converting Digital Assets to USD away from our platform and this transaction process, and then using the proceeds of that conversion to make a USD transaction in the offering.
Potentially Irreversible: Once we convert your Digital Assets into USD, it may be impossible to convert the USD back into Digital Assets without substantial delay and without incurring significant losses due to market volatility. While we will make all commercially reasonable efforts to refund Digital Assets promptly and efficiently, refunds converted from USD back to Digital Assets are subject to delays and market volatility, and you agree to bear 100% of this risk.

You are viewing the Site”) for GoToCrowd, LLC (“GTC”). GTC maintains a commercial investor technology platform through which companies that own, manage and develop investment projects, known as “sponsors” (“Sponsors”), offer investment opportunities to qualified investors.
GTC is not a registered broker-dealer or investment advisor and no communication from GTC through the Site or otherwise is intended to be or should be construed as investment, tax, financial, accounting or legal advice.
Investment opportunities posted on the Site can be accessed by investors via two means: 1) direct investing via an online market (the “Market”); or 2) investing in a vehicle managed by an affiliate of GTC.
Investment opportunities on the Market are generally offered under Rule 506 of Regulation D or under Regulation S of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”); they are only suitable for, intended for and available to (a) “accredited investors” as defined under Rule 501 of Regulation D or (b) non-US persons who are qualified in their domicile, in each case who are registered members of the Market. Investments in private placement are speculative, involve a high degree of risk and are illiquid. GTC Market participants should not invest on the Market unless they are willing to accept the risks associated with private investments and are able to bear the loss of their entire investment. GTC recommends that members of the Market consult with their financial advisor, attorney, accountant, and any other professional that can help to understand and assess the risks associated with any investment opportunity.
GTC neither endorses any of the opportunities that appear on the Market, nor makes any recommendations regarding the appropriateness of particular opportunities for any investor. Use of the Market does not constitute an offer by GTC to sell, solicit or make an offer to buy any security and GTC does not give or offer any financial advice, investment advice, tax or legal advice to anyone using the Market or in the general information available to the public on the Site.
Information on the Site (including information regarding targeted returns or investment performance) relating to specific investments has been provided by the Sponsor of the applicable investment opportunity and is subject to change. Although GTC believes any such information to be reliable, it makes no representations or warranties as to the accuracy or completeness of such information and accepts no liability therefor. Forward-looking statements, hypothetical information or calculations, financial estimates and targeted returns are inherently uncertain. Such information should not be used as a primary basis for an investor’s decision to invest.
From time to time, GTC and its affiliates may offer securities to members of the Market for consideration. These offers, if any, are also designed to be exempt from registration under the Securities Act in reliance on Regulation D and S.
If you choose to invest in an investment made available on the Market (including GTC vehicles), you will be required to execute various documentation regarding the investments (the “Investment Documents”). In all events, the commercial transactions which are the subject of the Investment Documents will be governed by such Investment Documents and not these terms, and in the event of any conflict between the terms of the Investment Documents and these terms, the Investment Documents will control. We reserve the right to reject, cancel, interrupt, remove or suspend any investment offered on the Market and are not liable for any damages as a result of any of these actions. Our policy is generally not to comment on the reasons for any of these actions, if taken.
Direct and indirect purchase of private placements involves significant risks, including without limitation market risks, liquidity risks, operational risks, and project-specific risks. The securities offerings posted on the Market (including GTC vehicles) are speculative. Market investments are NOT insured by the FDIC or by any other Federal Government Agency, are NOT Bank deposits, are NOT guaranteed by GTC, and MAY lose value. Neither the information nor any opinion expressed on any GTC webpages, including without limitation, the Market, shall be construed as an offer to buy, or the solicitation of an offer to sell, any securities.
Investments can and do lose money and you should be prepared to lose your entire investment in any investment made available on the Market (including GTC vehicles) . Neither the SEC nor any federal or state securities commission or regulatory authority has recommended or approved any investment or reviewed the accuracy or completeness of any of the information or materials posted on the Site. Neither GTC nor any of its directors, officers, employees, representatives, affiliates or agents shall have any liability whatsoever arising, for any error or incompleteness of fact or opinion in, or lack of care in the preparation or publication, of the materials and communication herein or the or that the valuation of any securities offering is appropriate. Prior performance and/or results are not indicative of future performance. Any performance information, including “forward looking statements”, is for informational purposes only and should not be relied upon as a basis for investment. Investors must make their own determination of whether or not to make any investment, based on their own independent evaluation of the investment and their risk tolerance. Furthermore, investors should consult their tax advisors regarding the consequences of any investment.
Articles or information from third-party media outside of this domain may discuss GTC, but GTC does not approve and is not responsible for any such content. Hyperlinks to third-party sites, or reproduction of third-party articles, do not constitute an approval or endorsement by GTC of the linked or reproduced content. Furthermore GTC may use “partner affiliates” to advertise the Market. Such partner affiliates may be compensated a fixed amount for each investor that registers on the marketplace as an accredited investor. Such compensation creates an incentive for partner affiliates to direct investors to the Market.
