1. About 0xUniverse
2. What You Need to Use the App
To start using the App, you need to set up one of the following browsers: Chrome (developed by Google) or Firefox (developed by Mozilla). After that, you need to install a MetaMask plugin (developed by ConsenSys) for your browser.
MetaMask is an digital wallet, which allows you to purchase, store, and engage in transactions using Ethereum cryptocurrency. You will not be able to engage in any transactions in the App other than through MetaMask.
The App will only recognize you as a user and you will only be able to interact with the App if your Ethereum digital wallet is connected to and unlocked through your MetaMask account.
There is no other way to sign up as a user or to interact directly with the App. Transactions that take place in the App are managed and confirmed via Ethereum blockchain. You understand that your Ethereum public address will be made publicly visible whenever you engage in a transaction in the App.
3. Third-party Services
We neither own nor control MetaMask, Coinbase, Chrome, Firefox, Ethereum network, or any other third-party site, product, or service that you might access, visit, or use for the purpose of enabling you to use the various features of the App. We will not be liable for the acts or omissions of any such third parties, nor will we be liable for any damage that you may suffer as a result of your transactions or any other interaction with any such third parties.
4. Commission and Payment
If you purchase, trade or alter Assets in the App, or with or from other users via the App, any financial transactions that you engage in will be conducted solely through Ethereum network via MetaMask. We will have no insight into or control over these payments or transactions, nor we have the ability to reverse any transactions. With that in mind, we will have no liability to you or to any third party for any claims or damages that may arise as a result of any transactions that you engage in via the App, or using the Smart Contracts, or any other transactions that you conduct via Ethereum network or MetaMask.
Ethereum requires the payment of a transaction fee (“Gas Fee”) for every transaction that occurs on Ethereum network. The Gas Fee funds a network of computers that run the decentralized Ethereum network. This means that you will need to pay the Gas Fee for each transaction that occurs via the App.
In addition to the Gas Fee, each time you utilize a Smart Contract to conduct a transaction with another user via the App, you authorize us to collect a commission of 5% of the total value of that transaction. You acknowledge and agree that the commission will be transferred directly to us through Ethereum network as part of your payment. We will not collect a commission for interactions that do not involve our App Marketplace.
Any and all purchases are final and non-refundable.
You agree to be solely responsible for any applicable taxes imposed on the Assets purchased hereunder. You shall pay any applicable taxes, including sales, use, personal property, value-added, excise, customs fees, import duties or stamp duties or other taxes and duties imposed by governmental agencies of whatever kind and imposed with respect to the transactions.
You acknowledge and accept that we reserve the right, at our own and complete discretion and at any time, to modify or to temporarily or permanently suspend or to eliminate the App or the selling of the Assets. We shall reserve the right to refuse selling the Assets to you without any explanation, at its sole and absolute discretion.
You must take appropriate actions for keeping safety of your login and password in the MetaMask and shall bear responsibility of their safety and confidentiality. All actions carried out with the use of your login and password, considered to be executed by you.

- The prices of blockchain assets are extremely volatile. Fluctuations in the price of other digital assets could materially and adversely affect the value of your Assets, which may also be subject to significant price volatility. We cannot guarantee that any purchasers of Assets will not lose money.
- There are risks associated with using an Internet-based 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 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 Ethereum network, however caused.
- A lack of use or public interest in the creation and development of distributed ecosystems could negatively impact the development of the 0xUniverse ecosystem, and therefore the potential utility or value of Assets.
- The regulatory regime governing blockchain technologies, cryptocurrencies, and tokens is uncertain, and new regulations or policies may materially adversely affect the development of 0xUniverse ecosystem, and therefore the potential utility or value of Assets.
- Upgrades by Ethereum to Ethereum platform, a hard fork in Ethereum platform, or a change in how transactions are confirmed on Ethereum platform may have unintended, adverse effects on all blockchains using the ERC-721 standard, including 0xUniverse.
