20. ASSUMPTION OF RISK
19.1. Value and Volatility: The prices of collectible blockchain assets are extremely volatile and subjective and collectible blockchain assets may have no inherent or intrinsic value. Fluctuations in the price of other digital assets could materially and adversely affect the value of your Collectibles, which may also be subject to significant price volatility. Each Collectibles has no inherent or intrinsic value. We cannot guarantee that any Collectibles purchased will retain their original value, as the value of collectibles is inherently subjective and factors occurring outside of our ecosystem may materially impact the value and desirability of any particular Collectible.
19.2. Tax Calculations: You are solely responsible for determining what, if any, taxes apply to your Collectibles-related transactions. We are not responsible for determining the taxes that apply to your transactions on the Collectibles.
19.3. Inherent Risks with Digital Currency: There are risks associated with using an internet-based digital currency, including, but not limited to, the risk of hardware, software and Internet connections, the risk of malicious software introduction, and the risk that third parties may obtain unauthorized access to information stored within your electronic wallet. You accept and acknowledge that we will not be responsible for any communication failures, disruptions, errors, distortions or delays you may experience when using any Blockchain Network, however caused.
19.4. Regulatory Uncertainty: The regulatory regime governing blockchain technologies, cryptocurrencies and tokens is uncertain, and new regulations or policies may materially adversely affect the development of relevant ecosystem, and therefore the potential utility or value of your Collectibles.
19.5. Software Risks: Upgrades to a Blockchain Network, a hard fork in the Blockchain Network, or a change in how transactions are confirmed on the Blockchain Network may have unintended, adverse effects on all blockchains using the Blockchain Network’s NFT standard.

WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO EXERCISE SOLE CONTROL OVER THE DEFENSE, AT YOUR EXPENSE, OF ANY CLAIM SUBJECT TO INDEMNIFICATION PURSUANT TO THESE TERMS.

We will resume the performance of our obligations as soon as reasonably practicable after the removal of the cause. In the event that our failure or delay remains uncured for a period of forty-five (45) consecutive days following written notice given by us under this Section, we may thereafter terminate these Terms upon fifteen (15) days' written notice.
