CONTENT ON THIS SERVICE SHOULD NOT BE CONSIDERED AS INFORMATION SUFFICIENT UPON WHICH TO BASE AN INVESTMENT STRATEGY. THE SERVICES, PLATFORM, AND CONTENT SHOULD BE USED AS A TOOL IN A WIDER TOOLKIT OF DATA-DRIVEN PRODUCTS AND SERVICES FOR CRYPTOCURRENCY INVESTORS AND DEVELOPERS. YOU ASSUME ALL RISK OF DAMAGE OR LOSS RESULTING FROM THE USE OF THE PLATFORM, THE SERVICES, AND THE CONTENT.

NO CONTENT IS TAILORED TO THE SPECIFIC NEEDS OF ANY INDIVIDUAL, ENTITY OR GROUP OF INDIVIDUALS. YM EXPRESSES NO OPINION AS TO THE FUTURE OR EXPECTED VALUE OF ANY CURRENCY, SECURITY OR OTHER INTEREST. YM DOES NOT EXPLICITLY OR IMPLICITLY RECOMMEND OR SUGGEST ANY INVESTMENT STRATEGY OF ANY KIND. YOU AGREE THAT THE PLATFORM, SERVICES, AND CONTENT SHOULD BE USED AS PART OF A LARGER DEFI DATA TOOLKIT.

CONTENT MAY NOT BE USED AS A BASIS FOR ANY FINANCIAL OR OTHER PRODUCT WITHOUT THE EXPRESS PRIOR WRITTEN CONSENT OF YM.

THE CONTENT IS “AS-IS,” AND MAY INCLUDE INACCURACIES OR ERRORS. YM DOES NOT REVIEW ALL CONTENT FOR ACCURACY, COMPLETENESS OR RELIABILITY, AND DOES NOT WARRANT OR GUARANTEE THE ACCURACY, COMPLETENESS, TIMELINESS, SECURITY, AVAILABILITY, OR INTEGRITY OF THE PLATFORM, SERVICE OR ANY CONTENT, AND DISCLAIMS ALL LIABILITY FOR ANY ERRORS OR OTHER INACCURACIES RELATING TO THE SERVICE, PLATFORM, OR THE CONTENT. YM HEREBY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS WITH REGARD TO THE SERVICE AND THE CONTENT, INCLUDING ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, AND NONINFRINGEMENT.

THE PLATFORM, SERVICE, AND ALL CONTENT ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND. YM MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS THAT THE PLATFORM, SERVICE, AND CONTENT WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR OPERATE IN COMBINATION WITH ANY SOFTWARE, SERVICE, SYSTEM, OR OTHER DATA OR INFORMATION. YM DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS THAT THIS PLATFORM, SERVICE, CONTENT, YM’S SERVERS, DATABASE, API, OR ANY EMAIL SENT FROM YM ARE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS.

THE DISCLAIMERS, EXCLUSIONS, AND LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY UNDER THIS AGREEMENT WILL NOT APPLY TO THE EXTENT PROHIBITED BY APPLICABLE LAW. Some states do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or limitation of liability for incidental or consequential damages, which means that some of the above limitations may not apply. In these states, each party’s liability will be limited to those actual damages directly related to the breach of this Agreement.

Accuracy of Information

YM will strive to ensure accuracy of Content provided through the Service or on the Platforms. However, YM provides all information “as is.”

YM has no influence or control over blockchain mainnets. YM has no influence over the actions or errors of neither mainnets, mainnet developers, nor individual DeFi platforms or their developers. The ongoing availability and accuracy of Content relies on existing or future smart contract integrations with both the blockchain mainnets and each individual DeFi product and team building upon those mainnets. Any technical failures or unforeseen updates to the blockchain and/or the smart contracts could impact YM’s ability to accurate report chain/price data, for which You will hold YM harmless.

YM does not own or control the underlying software protocols which govern the operation of blockchains or cryptocurrencies support or tracked by the platform. Generally, the underlying protocols are open source, and anyone can use, copy, modify, and distribute them. We assume no responsibility for the operation of the underlying protocols, and we are not able to guarantee the functionality or security of network operations. Additionally, the underlying protocols may be subject to sudden changes in operating rules (including “forks”). Any such material operating changes may materially affect the availability, value, functionality, and/or the name of the cryptocurrency You own and store in Your private wallet. YM does not control the timing and features of these possible operating changes, and You shall hold YM harmless for the foregoing.

You agree to hold YM harmless for any missing, delayed, or incorrect Content or other information available on the Platforms or through the Services, as well as any missing, delayed, or incorrect Content or other information linked to or referenced by YM. You understand that You are using any and all information available here at Your own risk.

YOU MUST make yourself aware of upcoming software, operating, smart contract, or protocol changes and You agree to carefully consider publicly available information in determining whether to continue owning, holding, or investing in a particular cryptocurrency.

No Investment Advice

The information provided on this website does not constitute investment advice, financial advice, trading advice, or any other sort of advice. YM is not recommending that You purchase, sell, or hold any cryptocurrency. You agree to conduct extensive research into the legitimacy of each individual cryptocurrency before making any investment decisions. You acknowledge digital currencies are not subject to protections or insurance provided by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) or the Securities Investor Protection Corporation. Cryptocurrency may be vulnerable to attacks on its security, integrity, or operation, including attacks using computing power sufficient to overwhelm the normal operation of the cryptocurrency’s blockchain or other underlying technology. You understand that some blockchain or DeFi related projects can change their tokenomics at will, without warning. Those changes can impact the value, functionality, or future operations of said blockchain or DeFi platform. Conduct Your own due diligence and consult Your financial advisor before making any investment decisions, and You should use the Services, Platform, and Content as part of a larger DeFi data toolkit.

“AS IS” and “AS AVAILABLE” Disclaimer

The Platform, Service, and Content are provided to You “AS IS” and “AS AVAILABLE” and with all faults and defects and without warranty of merchantability and/ or any other warranty of any kind.

Without limitation to the foregoing, YM provides no warranty or undertaking, and makes no representation of any kind that the Service will meet Your requirements, achieve any intended results, be compatible or work with any other software, applications, systems, or services, operate without interruption, meet any performance or reliability standards or be error free or that any errors or defects can or will be corrected.

You should use the Platform and the Services as part of a wider DeFi data toolkit.

Indemnification

Except to the extent prohibited under applicable law, You shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless YM and its members, managers, directors, officers, founders, advisors, investors, employees, partners, consultants, contractors, service providers, agents, successors and assigns from and against any and all suits, actions, proceedings and claims by third parties, whether threatened or actual, and all losses, liabilities, damages, judgments, costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising out of, relating to or in connection with: (i) Your use (or misuse) of and access to the Platform, Service, and Content; (ii) Your violation of any of these Terms; (iii) Your violation of any applicable law, rule or regulation; (d) any claim that any information provided by You to YM in connection with the Platform, including the Content, caused damage to, infringed upon, misappropriated or otherwise violated the rights of any third party, including infringement, misappropriation or other violation of third-party intellectual property rights, or violation of any right of privacy or publicity; and/or (iv) any dispute that You have with any third party relating to or in connection with the Service or Content.

You acknowledge that such reporting or cooperation may include, without limitation, providing information relating to You and/or Your use of the Service, including without limitation Your email address, IP address or other identifying information, to law enforcement authorities, financial regulators, third-party providers, vendors, or system administrators. Further, we may disclose any information we think necessary to comply with applicable law, regulation, subpoena, or other legal process or governmental or regulatory request.
