Trading from Singapore

The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) requires us to provide this risk warning to you as a customer of a digital payment token (DPT) service provider.

Before you pay your DPT service provider any money or DPT, you should be aware of  the following.

  1. Your DPT service provider is exempted by MAS from holding a licence to provide DPT services. Please note that you may not be able to recover all the  money or DPTs you paid to your DPT service provider if your DPT service  provider’s business fails.
  2. You should not transact in the DPT if you are not familiar with this DPT. This  includes how the DPT is created, and how the DPT you intend to transact is  transferred or held by your DPT service provider.
  3. You should be aware that the value of DPTs may fluctuate greatly. You should  buy DPTs only if you are prepared to accept the risk of losing all of the money  you put into such tokens.
  4. You should be aware that your DPT service provider, as part of its licence to  provide DPT services, may offer services related to DPTs which are promoted  as having a stable value, commonly known as “stablecoin”.
