  • your Crypto assets capital is not protected under any investor protection schemes anywhere in the world.

Concentration Risks

Depending on the consensus mechanism used by a particular blockchain, In the event that an individual or entity acquires control of more than 51% of the computing power (hash rate) utilised by a blockchain network, they would possess the ability to exploit this majority control to engage in double spending of their crypto-assets. Consequently, the value of the crypto-asset impacted would likely experience a significant decline
