2Licence to Use the Site: If you comply with these Terms of Service, GBCAX grants you the limited right to use the Site and the Services. The right to use the Site and the Services is a non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable, limited licence, and it is subject to the limitations and obligations in these Terms of Service. Nothing in these Terms of Service gives you any licence (other than as set out in this paragraph), right, title, or ownership of, in, or to the Site or any of the Services.
Trading & Financing Activities: The Site is a trading environment for the spot purchase and sale of Digital Tokens. The Site permits both unfinanced and financed transactions. Unfinanced purchases are fully funded by trading participants through funds deposited by you. For example, if you deposit $100.00 into your account on the Site, you may then purchase $100.00 worth of bitcoins in an unfinanced transaction. Purchases and sales of bitcoins on the Site, whether in an unfinanced transaction or a financed transaction, are settled by actual delivery of the full amount of the bitcoins or other Digital Tokens by the seller to the purchaser’s account against payment in full by the purchaser to the seller’s account.
Important: Financing is not allowed where prohibited by applicable law. U.S. Persons may not be Financing Recipients on the Site. Furthermore, New York and Washington state residents are prohibited from depositing to, withdrawing from, or trading on the Site.
Financed transactions in Digital Tokens are permitted through the Site’s platform-enabled, peer-to-peer financing functionality. Financing Providers may offer financing from and on their own account if they so choose. Financing Recipients may accept financing from Financing Providers for up to 70% of the value of a Digital Token purchase. For example, if you deposit $30.00 to the Site, you may then obtain financing in an amount not exceeding $70.00 in order to buy $100.00 worth of bitcoins in a financed transaction. In other words, you may accept financing equal to a maximum total bitcoins-to-equity ratio of 3 1/3 to 1.
Shorting is another type of financed transaction permitted on the Site’s platform. In a typical ‘long sale’ of bitcoin, the seller enters into a regular spot trade of bitcoin and settles the transaction by delivering bitcoin that the seller owns outright. In a ‘short sale’ of bitcoin, the seller also enters into a regular spot sale of bitcoin, except that the transaction is settled by delivering bitcoin that the seller has borrowed.
Digital Tokens can be borrowed for purposes of short sales through the platform’s peer-to-peer financing functionality. The bitcoin borrower may seek offers or make a bid to borrow Digital Tokens on the Financing Order Book. Bitcoin borrowers are not permitted to borrow more than 70% of the bitcoins sold in a short sale. The fiat proceeds of any short sale serve as collateral for the borrowing of the bitcoins until those bitcoins are repaid.
GBCAX allows trading participants to use third party peer-to-peer financing from other participants on the platform to trade Digital Tokens. Financing Recipients may obtain financing in one of two general ways: they may place bids for financing on the Site’s separate, peer-to-peer financing order book (the "Financing Order Book"); or, they may elect to be automatically matched through the Site’s order matching engine with one or more Financing Providers on the Financing Order Book at the best prevailing price on the Financing Order Book. Although GBCAX is not a party to these financing contracts, GBCAX enforces the contracts established between Financing Providers and Financing Recipients on the Financing Order Book.
The Financing Order Book operates independent of the spot contract trading order book (the "Trading Order Book"). Once the desired financing is secured by a Financing Recipient, both financed and unfinanced transactions on the Trading Order Book are indistinguishable from each other to the trade matching engine.
The amount of the financing, the terms of the financing, and the interest rate are all commercial terms negotiated through the Financing Order Book between Financing Providers and Financing Recipients. For instance, assume that A has $30.00 (in dollars) in her account on the Site. A obtains $70.00 in financing at X interest rate for Y term on the Financing Order Book (thereby becoming a Financing Recipient) from B, a Financing Provider. With that aggregate amount of $100.00, A may purchase $100.00 in bitcoins on the Trading Order Book from C, or from one or more other sellers. A has the right to repay the financing (including any accrued interest) at any time without pre-payment or other penalty. Obtaining financing does not create any obligation to purchase bitcoins on the Trading Order Book. A may also replace financing from B at any time with more favorable financing.
In the above example, the bitcoins purchased by A (for $100.00) are subject to a Lien in favor of B up to the total amount of financing secured from B ($70.00 plus any interest component). A may remove any amount of bitcoins from the Site that is not subject to the Lien. If the Financing Recipient’s equity falls to or below 15%—calculated as the quotient (expressed as a percentage) obtained by dividing (a) the excess of (i) the market value of the purchased bitcoins over (ii) the total principal amount (plus accrued and unpaid interest) relating to all financing outstanding by (b) the market value used in (a)(i), above—GBCAX will force the liquidation of the bitcoins in A’s account without notice to A, return financing to the Financing Provider, with accrued interest, and return the balance to the Financing Recipient. GBCAX does not make margin calls. For example, if the purchased bitcoins’ value falls from $100.00 to $82.35, the difference between that value and the financing obtained by A would be $82.35 – $70.00, or $12.35. Taken as a percentage of the bitcoins’ value, $12.35 ∕ $82.35 equals 15%. In other words, if the value of the bitcoins fell to $82.35 in aggregate, A’s bitcoins would be liquidated by GBCAX on the Trading Order Book, B would be repaid, and any remaining difference ($12.35, exclusive of interest) would be A’s to retain.
By contrast, if the market value of bitcoins rises, A may sell her bitcoins and repay the loan. For example, assume the value of A’s bitcoins rises to $115.00. Now the difference between the bitcoins’ value and the financing is $115.00 – $70.00, or $45.00. Taken as a percentage of the value of the bitcoins, $45.00 ∕ $115.00 equals approximately 39%. Accordingly, A could remove part of her equity, but may not fall below her initial equity requirement. A could also sell the bitcoins on the Trading Order Book, repay the financing to B (plus any interest), and retain the balance on the transaction.
Alternatively, A could satisfy the Lien and unencumber the bitcoins by repaying the financing used to purchase the bitcoins. Unencumbering the bitcoins simply refers to the process of using some combination of unrealized gain or additionally deposited funds, or both, for the purposes of paying off the financing and removing the Lien. In the above example, A could deploy the unrealized gain of $15.00 to partially unencumber the bitcoins owned by her, thereby reducing the financed amount outstanding to B.

Risks and Limitation of Liability: Important: This paragraph is in addition to the the Risk Disclosure Statement. Trading markets are volatile and shift quickly in terms of liquidity, market depth, and trading dynamics. You are solely responsible and liable: for any and all trading and non-trading activity on the Site and for your account on the Site; and, for knowing the true status of any position or contract with any other party on the Site, even if presented incorrectly by the Site at any time. You acknowledge and agree: to be fully responsible and liable for your trading and non-trading actions and inactions on the Site and all gains and losses sustained from your use of the Site and any of the Services; to be responsible for any negative balance in your account(s) on the Site; to be fully responsible and liable for all of your obligations with respect to any financing activities on the Site; and, to be fully responsible for safeguarding access to, and any information provided through, the Site and any of the Services, including, but not limited to, private keys, usernames, passwords, and bank account details.
There is no guarantee against losses on the Site. You may lose more than is in your various wallets on the Site if you engage in financing on the Site or if there is a force majeure event. When financing is used for trading, the loan carries risk if, among other things, the value of your Digital Tokens drops. If the value of your Digital Tokens drops below a certain level, you are responsible for responding to this market circumstance with cash or additional Digital Tokens satisfactory to GBCAX. Failure to respond can result in the forced-liquidation of Digital Tokens in your account. GBCAX cannot guarantee to stop losses even with the ability to force-liquidate any of your positions (due to, for example, market volatility and liquidity). GBCAX will not be and is not responsible for any Financing Provider losing funds or Digital Tokens to any Financing Recipient on the Site or for any losses incurred by a Financing Recipient or any other party on the Site.
5Agency: GBCAX does not act as principal, counterparty, or market-maker in the transactions effected through trading on GBCAX or in providing financing for financed trading on GBCAX. However, GBCAX administers and enforces contracts among parties engaged in financing activities on the Site. You hereby irrevocably appoint GBCAX to act as your exclusive agent in respect of any contract on the Site in which you are a Financing Recipient. Specifically, you hereby grant GBCAX agency, and you authorize and instruct GBCAX: to implement, levy, monitor, and maintain a lien on all fiat amounts and Digital Tokens in your name or control on the Site in favor of one or more Financing Providers (a “Lien”); and, to liquidate any Digital Tokens in your name or control on the Site if necessary to ensure that any Financing Provider on the Site from whom you have obtained financing is repaid in full.
6Satisfaction of Liens: If and when you seek to remove all of your Digital Tokens and funds from GBCAX and there is a Lien outstanding against any of your funds or Digital Tokens, GBCAX may satisfy the Lien.
7Withdrawals: Irrespective of the nature and form of any withdrawal request, whether initiated by you or otherwise, GBCAX reserves the right to process and send withdrawals using money or any one or more Digital Tokens. In the course of processing and sending any withdrawals in money or one or more Digital Tokens, GBCAX may be required to share your customer information with other contractual third parties. You hereby irrevocably grant full permission and authority for GBCAX to share this information with such contractual third parties and release GBCAX from any liability, error, mistake, or negligence related thereto.
8Liquidations & Losses: If the value of your Digital Tokens drops below a certain level, this may result in one of two actions taken by GBCAX. First, GBCAX at all times reserves the right to force-liquidate the Digital Tokens in your account. Where this occurs, your Digital Tokens will be seized by GBCAX and used to repay any outstanding amounts due to your Financing Providers. Second, where you have negative equity, or where GBCAX determines in its sole discretion that, upon liquidation, you would likely have negative equity—that is, you fall below a certain maintenance requirement—in one or more or a combination of positions, GBCAX reserves the right to seize, take over, and assume all of your liabilities and collateral and to dispose of one or more of your positions, or to retain one or more of them, at a profit or loss, at GBCAX’s risk and expense. Further to your responsibility for all trading and financing activity and inactivity on the Site, any action may be taken by GBCAX pursuant to this paragraph at any time with or without notice to you, in GBCAX’s sole discretion.
9Inactivity Fee: Where you have not traded on the Site or engaged in any funding activity on the Site for an uninterrupted period of one year, GBCAX thereafter reserves the right to charge and obtain from you an inactivity fee of $25.00 per year, with or without notice to you. This fee will be taken from the Digital Tokens and other property that you hold on the Site.
10Abandoned Property: Where you have not logged into your account on the Site for an uninterrupted period of two years, GBCAX thereafter reserves the right to deem any and all property that you hold on the Site, including Digital Tokens, to be abandoned, with or without notice to you. If your property is abandoned, it will be dealt with in one of two ways. First, if you are an unverified customer, it will be immediately forfeited to and seized by GBCAX. Second, if you are a verified customer, we will engage in a process to determine the abandoned property’s owner (including successors-in-interest and next-of-kin). This process will be subject to servicing and administration fees to be levied on and collected out of the property by GBCAX. Any amounts greater than our servicing and administration fees will be paid to the property’s owner, when and if found.
11No Class Proceedings: You and GBCAX agree that any party hereto may bring claims against the others only on an individual basis and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative action or proceeding. No adjudicator may consolidate or join more than one person’s or party’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a consolidated, representative, or class proceeding. Any relief awarded to any one GBCAX user cannot and may not affect any other GBCAX users.
