We want to emphasize that investing in cryptocurrencies and digital assets, including with Rubicon Crypto, involves considerable risks, including, but not limited to the following:
General Market Risk. Economies and financial markets throughout the world are becoming increasingly interconnected, which increases the likelihood that events or conditions in one country or region will adversely impact markets or issuers in other countries or regions. Investments in any one strategy may under perform in comparison to general financial markets, a particular financial market or other asset classes, due to a number of factors, including inflation, deflation, interest rates, global demand for particular products or resources, market instability, debt crises and downgrades, embargoes, tariffs, sanctions and other trade barriers, regulatory events, other governmental trade or market control programs and related geopolitical events.
Illiquidity Risk. Digital Assets can be illiquid. Exchanging cryptocurrencies and blockchain assets for a specific fiat currency (such as the U.S. Dollar) may be impossible at any given moment. Illiquidity may be caused by:
- Government regulation;
- Exchange shutdown;
- Delisting of a particular token;
- Pre-ICO restrictions;
- Lockup periods; or
- Limited or no available market for the exchange or sale of such blockchain assets and/or cryptocurrencies.
Information Risks. Digital Assets are a new and emerging investment asset. Fundamental and technical information used to evaluate Digital Assets is also new and emerging. Relevant information may be unavailable, incomplete or inaccurate.
Volatility Risk. All Digital Assets are speculative and volatile and can have higher volatility than other traditional investments such as stocks, bonds or real estate. Investors should be prepared for volatile market swings and prolonged bear markets.
Economic Risk. The economic risk associated with Digital Assets is the viability of the digital project, and lack of widespread and continuing adoption of the project. Competition and other market factors may lead investors to determine that a Digital Asset should be valued differently than the current market capitalization.
Regulatory Risk. Digital Assets are a relatively new and emerging investment asset. Some or all Digital Assets could be banned or highly regulated by governments that would deter investors from buying or holding such assets.
Technology Risk. Digital Assets are based on new and developing technologies. Consequently, most Digital Assets are more vulnerable to any technology-based risk, such as hacking. As the technology evolves and is updated to add new security and functionality features, the updated code could potentially have an adverse impact on the security or functionality of the underlying digital network.
Cybersecurity Risk. Digital Asset exchanges and wallets have been hacked and assets have been stolen in the past. This is a potential risk you must be comfortable with when investing and holding Digital Assets. Rubicon Crypto strives to mitigate this risk by working with a qualified custodian that provides insurance protection against this type of loss.
While this information provides a synopsis of the events that may affect your investments, this listing is not exhaustive. We want you to understand that there are inherent risks associated with investing with Rubicon Crypto, and, depending on the risk occurrence, you may suffer loss of all or part of your principal investment.
