You agree and acknowledge that you are solely responsible for conducting legal, accounting and other due diligence review on the companies posted on the Site. You are strongly advised to consult a licensed legal professional and investment advisor for any legal, tax, insurance, or investment advice as the Site does not provide any of the foregoing advice or recommendations or provide any due diligence.
The securities offered on the Site, except where otherwise indicated, may only be purchased by investors who are not US persons or who, if US persons, are Accredited Investors (collectively, “GTC Authorized Investors”), as defined by Rule 501 of Regulation D under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). Federal law and regulations restrict investment in any of the securities offerings by non-qualified investors.

TYOU MUST MEET ONE OF THE ABOVE CRITERIA TO INVEST IN ANY OFFERING POSTED ON GTC AND PROVIDE THIRD PARTY VERIFICATION. WE ARE ENTITLED TO AND WILL RELY UPON YOUR REPRESENTATIONS. You agree that, should any material changes occur that might affect your status as a GTC Authorized Investor, you shall immediately provide the GTC with such information in writing.
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.

The use of electronic versions of documents fully satisfies any requirement that such documents be provided to you in writing.

You may revoke consent to electronic delivery of communications and receive a paper version at your election. GTC shall have a reasonable period to effect such a change and GTC may charge you a reasonable fee for sending such paper copies. If you elect to use electronic delivery, you agree and represent that you have a suitable computer with Internet access, an email address and the availability to download, save and/or print communications to retain a record of such communications. You agree that you are solely responsible for maintaining such equipment and services required for online access.

CAUTIONARY NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
Some of the statements made on our website (the “Site”) constitute forward-looking statements. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terminology such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “expects,” “plans,” “project,” “anticipates,” “believes,” “estimates,” “predicts,” “potential,” “intends,” or “continue,” or the negative of these terms or other comparable terminology.
These forward-looking statements may include, but are not limited to, statements relating to our objectives, plans, and strategies; statements that contain projections of results of operations or of financial condition; statements relating to the research, development, and use of our products; and all statements (other than statements of historical facts) that address activities, events, or developments that we intend, expect, project, believe, or anticipate will or may occur in the future.
Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to risks and uncertainties. We have based these forward-looking statements on assumptions and assessments made by our management in light of their experience and their perception of historical trends, current conditions, expected future developments, and other factors they believe to be appropriate.
Important factors that could cause actual results, developments, and business decisions to differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements include, among other things:
- the slowing or stopping of the development or acceptance of blockchain assets;
- the limitations of blockchain technology, which remains largely novel and untested;
- the legal framework of regulations applicable to blockchain technologies, cryptocurrencies, security tokens and token offerings;
- the lack of any existing marketplace for blockchain assets;
- our lack of an operating history;
- the impact of competition and new technologies;
- our ability to obtain government regulations and approvals;
- industry developments affecting our business, financial condition and results of operations;
- our operating performance and cash flow, or lack thereof; and
- global market, political, and economic conditions.
These statements are only current predictions and are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and other factors that may cause our or our industry’s actual results, levels of activity, performance, or achievements to be materially different from those anticipated by the forward-looking statements. You should not rely upon forward-looking statements as predictions of future events.
Although we believe that the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot guarantee future results, levels of activity, performance, or achievements. Except as required by law, we are under no duty to update or revise any of the forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, after the date of publication.
