Welcome to MANTRA Chain, a website-hosted user interface (the “Site") that we provide to allow our users to access the various products, services and information that comprise MANTRA Chain. Through this interface, we provide decentralized financial services and develop applications that connect people to digital assets and DeFi services.
NOTICE: Please read this Agreement carefully as it governs your use of the Site. This Agreement contains important information, including a binding arbitration provision, which impacts your rights as to how disputes are resolved. The Site is only available to you — and you should only access the Site— if you agree completely with these terms.
Before we get into the specifics of this Agreement, it is important that you know and understand that the risk of loss in trading or holding digital assets of any kind can be substantial. As with any asset, the value of digital assets can fluctuate and there can be a substantial risk that you lose money buying, selling, holding, or investing in digital assets. By using the Site, you agree that none of MANTRA Chain, or any person or company associated with MANTRA Chain, will be liable or responsible in any way for any losses that you might suffer as a result of using the Site.
MANTRA Chain cannot and does not guarantee the value of digital assets. You acknowledge and agree that the value of digital assets is highly volatile and that buying, selling, trading and the holding of digital assets involves a high risk. The risk of loss in buying, selling, trading or holding of digital assets can be substantial. You should therefore carefully consider whether buying, selling trading or holding of digital assets is suitable for you in light of your financial condition. In considering whether to buy, sell, trade or hold digital assets, you should be aware that the price or value of digital assets can change rapidly, decrease, and potentially even fall to zero. If you are unable to bear the financial risk of loss, please do not use or access the Site. You agree that you are solely responsible for any digital asset transactions and the use of the Site.
You should be aware that the risk of loss in trading or holding digital assets can be substantial. You should therefore carefully consider whether trading or holding digital assets is suitable for you considering your financial condition.

Non-Custodial and No Fiduciary Duties
The Site is a purely non-custodial application, meaning you are solely responsible for the custody of the cryptographic private keys to the digital asset wallets you hold. This Agreement is not intended to, and does not, create or impose any fiduciary duties on us. To the fullest extent permitted by law, you acknowledge and agree that we owe no fiduciary duties or liabilities to you or any other party, and that to the extent any such duties or liabilities may exist at law or in equity, those duties and liabilities are hereby irrevocably disclaimed, waived, and eliminated.

Assumption of Risk
By accessing and using the Site, you represent that you are financially and technically sophisticated enough to understand the inherent risks associated with using cryptographic and blockchain-based systems, and that you have a working knowledge of the usage and intricacies of digital assets such as bitcoin (BTC), ether (ETH), and other digital tokens such as those following the Ethereum Token Standard (ERC-20). In particular, you understand that blockchain-based transactions are irreversible.
You further understand that the markets for these digital assets are highly volatile due to factors including (but not limited to) adoption, speculation, technology, security, and regulation. You acknowledge and accept that the cost and speed of transacting with cryptographic and blockchain-based systems such as Ethereum are variable and may increase dramatically at any time. You further acknowledge and accept the risk that your digital assets may lose some or all of their value while they are supplied through the Site, you may suffer loss due to the fluctuation of prices of tokens in a trading pair or liquidity pool, and experience significant price slippage and cost. You understand that anyone can create a token, including fake versions of existing tokens and tokens that falsely claim to represent projects, and acknowledge and accept the risk that you may mistakenly trade those or other tokens. You further acknowledge, understand and agree that we are not responsible for any of these variables or risks, and cannot be held liable for any losses that you experience while accessing or using the Site. Accordingly, you understand and agree to assume full responsibility for all of the risks of accessing and using the Site. If you do not fully agree with each and every statement in this “Assumption of Risk” section, you may not use this Site.
Third-Party Resources and Promotions
The Site may contain references or links to third-party resources, including (but not limited to) information, materials, products, or services, that we do not own or control. In addition, third parties may offer promotions related to your access and use of the Site. We do not endorse or assume any responsibility for any such resources or promotions. If you access any such resources or participate in any such promotions, you do so at your own risk, and you understand that this Agreement does not apply to your dealings or relationships with any third parties. You expressly relieve us of any and all liability arising from your use of any such resources or participation in any such promotions.
Release of Claims
You expressly agree that you assume all risks in connection with your access and use of the Site. You further expressly waive and release us from any and all liability, claims, causes of action, or damages arising from or in any way relating to your use of the Site and your interaction with the Protocol.
We, our Site, and our third-party partners may experience cyber-attacks, extreme market conditions, or other operational or technical difficulties which could result in the immediate halt or suspension of transactions either temporarily or permanently. Provided that we have taken reasonable commercial and operational measures to prevent or correct such events in the technical systems we control, we are not and will not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage of any sort incurred by you as a result of such cyber-attacks, operational or technical difficulties or suspensions of transactions. Withdrawal limits based on amounts and/or frequency may apply from time to time, based on legal, regulatory, AML and/or security considerations. Our policies and procedures may require additional security and/or compliance checks that require additional time to complete.
Indemnity and Limitation of liability
You agree to hold harmless, release, defend, and indemnify us and our officers, directors, employees, contractors, agents, affiliates, and subsidiaries from and against all claims, damages, obligations, losses, liabilities, costs, and expenses arising from: (a) your access and use of the Site; (b) your violation of any term or condition of this Agreement, the right of any third party, or any other applicable law, rule, or regulation; and (c) any other party's access and use of the Site with your assistance or using any device or account that you own or control.
We assume no liability or responsibility for any:
- errors, mistakes, or inaccuracies of content;
- personal injury or property damage, of any nature whatsoever, resulting from any access or use of the Site;
- unauthorized access or use of any secure server or database in our control, or the use of any information or data stored therein;
- interruption or cessation of function related to the Site;
- bugs, viruses, trojan horses, or the like that may be transmitted to or through the Site;
- errors or omissions in, or loss or damage incurred as a result of the use of, any content made available through the Site; and
- the defamatory, offensive, or illegal conduct of any third party.
In addition to the immediately above paragraphs, in no event shall we, our affiliates or service providers, or any of our or their respective officers, directors, agents, employees or representatives, be liable for any of the following types of loss or damage arising under or in connection with this Agreement or otherwise:
- any loss of profits or loss of expected revenue or gains, including any loss of anticipated trading profits and/or any actual or hypothetical trading losses, even if we are advised of or knew or should have known of the possibility of the same. This means, by way of example only (and without limiting the scope of the preceding sentence), that if you claim that we failed to process a buy or sell transaction properly, your damages are limited to no more than the value of the supported digital asset at issue in the transaction, and that you may not recover for any ”loss“ of anticipated trading profits or for any actual trading losses made as a result of the failure to buy or sell;
- any loss of or damage to reputation or goodwill; any loss of business or opportunity, customers, or contracts; any loss or waste of overheads, management, or other staff time; or any other loss of revenue or actual or anticipated savings, even if we are advised of or knew or should have known of the possibility of the same;
- any loss of use of hardware, software or data and/or any corruption of data; including but not limited to any losses or damages arising out of or relating to any inaccuracy, defect or omission of digital asset price data; any error or delay in the transmission of such data; and/or any interruption in any such data;
- any loss or damage whatsoever which does not stem directly from our breach of this Agreement; and/or
- any loss or damage whatsoever which is in excess of that which was caused as a direct result of our breach of this Agreement (whether or not you are able to prove such loss or damage).
Under no circumstances shall we or any of our officers, directors, employees, contractors, agents, affiliates, or subsidiaries be liable to you for any claims, proceedings, liabilities, obligations, damages, losses, or costs in an amount exceeding the amount you paid to us in exchange for access to and use of the Site, or USD$100.00, whichever is greater. This limitation of liability applies regardless of whether the alleged liability is based on contract, tort, negligence, strict liability, or any other basis, and even if we have been advised of the possibility of such liability. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the limitation or exclusion of certain liabilities and damages. Accordingly, some of the disclaimers and limitations set forth in this Agreement may not apply to you. This limitation of liability shall apply to the fullest extent permitted by law.
Each provision of these terms that provides for a limitation of liability, disclaimer of warranties, or exclusion of damages is intended to and does allocate the risks between the parties under these terms. This allocation is an essential element of the basis of the bargain between the parties. Each of these provisions is severable and independent of all other provisions of these terms. The limitations in this section will apply even if any limited remedy fails of its essential purpose.
You acknowledge and agree that your use of the Site is at your own risk. The Site is provided on an “as is”, “with all faults” and “as available” basis. We, our officers, directors, shareholders, employees, and agents expressly disclaim all warranties of any kind, expressed, implied or statutory, relating to the Site and its content including without limitation the warranties of title, merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, non-infringement of proprietary rights, course of dealing or course of performance. We do not warrant that (i) the Site will meet your specific requirements, (ii) the Site will be uninterrupted, timely, secure or error-free, (iii) any transactions will be accurate, error-free, reliable or complete, (iv) any errors on the Site will be corrected, or (v) any services through the Site will meet your expectations or requirements.

We are not responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused to you by your use of or reliance on any goods or services available through the third-party products, services, and websites.
Additionally, if you follow a link or otherwise navigate away from the Site, please be aware that these Terms will no longer govern. You should review the applicable terms and policies, including privacy and data gathering practices, of any third-party websites to which you navigate to from the Site.
In no event shall we be liable for any damages whatsoever, whether direct, indirect, general, special, exemplary, compensatory, consequential, and/or incidental, arising out of or relating out of, or relating to the conduct of you or anyone else in connection with the use of the Site, including without limitation, loss, impairment, bodily injury, death, emotional distress, damage to your possessions and/or any other damages resulting from any transactions initiated on the Site, unauthorized access to or alteration of your transmissions to the Site and errors, mistakes or inaccuracies of any content on the Site. You agree to take reasonable precautions when executing any Transactions on the Site.
Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement, if your jurisdiction has provisions specific to waiver or liability that conflict with the above, our liability is then limited to the smallest extent possible by law. Specifically, in those jurisdictions not allowed, we do not disclaim liability for (i) death or personal injury caused by negligence of that of any of its officers, employees or agents, (ii) fraudulent misrepresentation, or (iii) any liability which is not lawful to exclude either now or in the future.
If you are a resident of a jurisdiction that requires a specific statement regarding release, you would waive any similar provisions in law, regulation or code that has the same intent or effect. We are not responsible for the actions, content, information, or data of third parties, and you agree to release us, our directors, officers, employees and agents from any claims and damages, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with any claim you have against such third parties. Your ability to use the Site is contingent on your agreement with this and all other sections of this Agreement. Where allowed, you agree that our total liability to you is not more than USD$100.00 or the total amount you paid to use our service within the last year, whichever is greater.
We make no representations about the accuracy or completeness of historical digital asset price data available on the Site.

We may also refuse to complete a transaction you have authorized where there are insufficient funds in your account and/or insufficient digital assets in your account to cover the transaction and (where applicable) associated fees at the time that we receive notification of the transaction.
If we refuse to complete a transaction and/or suspend or close your account, or terminate your use of our Services in this way, we will (unless it would be unlawful for us to do so) provide you with notice of our actions and the reasons for refusal, suspension or closure and where appropriate, with the procedure for correcting any factual errors that led to the refusal, suspension or closure. In the event that we refuse to complete a transaction and/or suspend your account, we will lift the suspension as soon as reasonably practicable once the reasons for refusal and/or suspension no longer exist. However, we are under no obligation to allow you to reinstate a transaction at the same price or on the same terms as the suspended, reversed or cancelled transaction.
We may suspend, restrict, or terminate your access to any or all of our services and/or deactivate or cancel your account, without reason by giving you one month notice.
