Acknowledgement and assumption of risks

Users acknowledge, understand and agree that there are risks associated with purchasing and selling NFTs, including other risks not discussed herein. Crypto assets are inherently risky, and the Company advises Users to consider these risks before buying and selling NFTs. The purchase of NFTs within the Website is non-refundable and cannot be cancelled. The Company reserves the right to refuse or cancel NFTs purchase requests at any time at its sole discretion.

Users acknowledge and understand that all activity and use of crypto assets is highly unregulated, and the value of NFTs can be volatile and unpredictable. This may result in significant losses in a short time, including a possible loss of total value. Moreover, the regulatory regime governing NFTs, and blockchain technology in general, at the state, federal, or international level, may adversely affect the use, transfer, exchange, and value of NFTs, the development and/or use of the Website, and/or the Services. 

There are risks inherent to the technology, including fraud, expropriation, hack, theft, cyber attack, malware attacks, denial of service attacks, consensus-based attacks, Sybil attacks, smurfing and spoofing, bugs, and/or technological difficulties that might prevent Users' access to the Website and/or the Services. In the event of any such situations, Users are not guaranteed any remedy, refund, or compensation.

Users acknowledge and understand that their use of the Website is at their own risk. The information, software, products, and services included in or available through the Website may include inaccuracies or typographical errors. The Company makes no representations about the suitability, reliability, availability, timeliness, and accuracy of the NFTs, information, software, products, Services, and related graphics contained on the Website for any purpose.

Conditions of use

By using the Website, you agree to comply with these T&Cs. The use of the Website, its products, services is exclusive to those who have accepted these T&Cs. HODLERS may, from time to time, revise these T&Cs and the revised version shall be effective at the time of its posting on the Website, unless otherwise clarified. Where the changes to these T&Cs increase User responsibilities or reduce User rights, HODLERS shall provide a notice and guarantee Users advance notice as required by applicable law. The User shall be deemed to have consented to be bound by the new T&Cs by continuing to use the Website. In the event the User does not consent to the changes to the T&Cs, the User shall stop accessing the Website.

Connecting your wallet

In order to access and use the Services, including to engage in a Transaction, you must have and connect your digital wallet supported on MetaMask, WalletConnect or other wallet extensions or gateways as allowed on the Services (“Wallet”). Wallets allow you to purchase, store, and engage in transactions using the native Ethereum cryptocurrency, ETH. When you link your Wallet, you understand and agree that you are solely responsible for maintaining the security of your Wallet and your control over any wallet-related authentication credentials, including any seed phrase or private cryptocurrency keys, as well as NFTs or cryptocurrencies that are stored in or are accessible through your Wallet. Any unauthorized access to your Wallet by third parties could result in the loss or theft of NFTs and/or other assets held in your Wallet and any associated wallets, including any linked financial information such as bank account(s) or credit card(s).

HODLERS does not have access to your Wallet or any linked financial information and is not responsible for managing or maintaining the security of your Wallet. HODLERS shall not be liable for any loss or damage arising from any unauthorized access to or use of your Wallet or if you are unable to locate your credentials. By connecting your Wallet to the Services, you represent and warrant that you are the sole owner and authorized user of the Wallet and that you will use the Services in accordance with applicable law and these T&Cs.


Each sale of an NFT is an agreement between HODLERS and the Initial Purchaser. If the Initial Purchaser decides to sell the NFT (“Secondary Sale”), then HODLERS is not a party to any agreement between the buyer, seller, or facilitator of the Secondary Sale.

If a Collector sells or transfers an NFT to another Collector, (a) the seller represents and warrants that they will notify the subsequent Collector of these Terms and require the subsequent Collector to comply with these Terms, (b) the NFT-specific Collector License as set forth herein will automatically transfer to such subsequent Collector, and such Collector will be deemed the “Collector” (for purposes of such NFT and the applicable NFT-specific Collector License to the underlying NFT IP) and will be subject to these Terms, and (c) the seller or transferor of such NFT will cease to have any further rights to such NFT or underlying NFT IP. 

By placing an order on the Site or through the Services (including by bidding in an auction), you agree that you are submitting a binding offer to purchase an NFT, you agree to pay all applicable fees associated with the Transaction, and you authorize HODLERS to automatically charge and collect such fees from your payment instrument or Wallet. If you are an Initial Purchaser, then all amounts due are to be paid to HODLERS. If you are not the Initial Purchaser of an NFT, then amounts may be paid to the seller of such NFT. No refunds are permitted except with respect to any statutory warranties or guarantees that cannot be excluded or limited by law.


You are solely responsible for paying any and all sales, use, value-added, and other taxes, duties, and assessments now or in the future imposed by any governmental authority associated with your use of the Services, Perks, or NFTs, including taxes that may become payable as a result of your ownership, transfer, purchase, or sale of an NFT.
