  • EXA.Market: EXA.Market is an advanced marketplace enabling Users to buy, sell and exchange Crypto-assets, NFTs and other digital assets between each other, and allowing NFT Creators to sell NFTs on a Primary Market.

The purpose of the T&Cs is to define the conditions under which the Website and the Services may be accessed and used, as well as to define the rights and obligations of Users and Exa Labs in this context.

The T&Cs may complement other agreements between Exa Labs and Users, and in particular with Creators. In case of contradiction between these terms and the terms of any NFT Creator agreement concluded between Exa Labs and a Creator, such agreement shall prevail.

These T&Cs apply to all Users without restriction or reservation, to any use and access of the Website and the Services.

3. Pre-contractual information; warnings

3.1. Use of Blockchains and Crypto-assets

By accessing and using the Website and the Services, Users declare that they are financially and technically sophisticated enough to understand the inherent risks associated with using cryptographic and blockchain-based systems, and that they have a deep knowledge of the usage and intricacies of Crypto-assets, NFTs or other digital assets and the variety of token standards (e.g. the ERC-20 standard or the ASA standard).

In particular, Users understand that Blockchain-based transactions are irreversible and that Exa Labs has no power or control over transactions stored on a Blockchain. Users further understand that the markets for these digital assets are highly volatile due to factors including (but not limited to) adoption, speculation, technology, security, and regulation.

Users acknowledge and accept that the cost and speed of transacting with cryptographic and Blockchain-based systems such as Algorand are variable and may increase dramatically at any time. Users further acknowledge and accept the risk that digital assets may lose some or all of their value while they are supplied to the Services through the Website and that they may suffer loss due to the fluctuation of prices of tokens.

Users understand that anyone can create a token, including fake versions of existing tokens and tokens that falsely claim to represent projects, and acknowledge and accept the risk that they may mistakenly trade those or other tokens.

3.2. NFTs

Users are made aware of the fact that the value of an NFTs is subjective. Prices of NFTs are subject to volatility and fluctuations in the price of Crypto-asset, which can also materially and adversely affect NFT prices. Users acknowledge that they fully understand this subjectivity and volatility and that they may lose money.

A lack of use or public interest in the creation and development of distributed Blockchain ecosystems could negatively impact the development of those ecosystems and related applications, and could therefore also negatively impact the potential utility of NFTs. This could be the case for the Algorand Blockchain, which the Website and the Services mainly rely on.

Users also understand that there are risks associated with NFTs associated with content created by third parties (e.g. other Users, Creators) through peer-to-peer transactions, including but not limited to, the risk of purchasing counterfeit items, mislabeled items, items that are vulnerable to metadata decay, items on smart contracts with bugs, and items that may become untransferable.

3.3. Security

Due notably to the non-custodial features of External Wallets, Users acknowledge and agree that they are primarily liable for the security of their External Wallets, their NFTs, their Crypto-assets, their data and their funds.

Users must ensure that their External Wallet is secure and should never share their External Wallet credentials or seed phrase with anyone. Exa Labs will never ask for the User’s credentials associated with an External Wallet.

Exa Labs does not store any password or seed phrase, nor has any access to any User credentials, except the User’s address email when a User willingly decided to share it with Exa Labs, and therefore cannot be held liable for any security breach attributed to a User.

4. Access

In order to access and use the Services, Users must :

  • have an internet connection ;

  • own a Blockchain Address on the Algorand Blockchain ;

  • own Crypto-assets, NFTs or other kind of digital asset in order to be able to make transactions, or purchase some ;

  • use an External Wallet compatible with the Algorand Blockchain, such as the Algorand Wallet or the My Algo Wallet.

5. Acceptance and amendment

5.1. Acceptance

These T&Cs apply, without restriction or reservation, to any use of the Services and the Website.

Upon the first connection of a User with a dedicated Blockchain Address, each User expresses their consent to the T&Cs through a signature with their External Wallet.

The T&Cs and their different versions over time may be read and accessed in permanent conditions of accessibility on the Website.

Each User acknowledges that they have the capacity to contract with Exa Labs, sign a transaction with an External Wallet and use the Services according to the laws where they is established, declares that any information provided is accurate, especially pre-contractual and contractual information, and declares that they has read and accepted the T&Cs.

5.2. Amendment of the T&Cs; Evolution of the Services

In order to improve their features and quality, Exa Labs may regularly modify the Website and the Services. In particular, Exa Labs may add, remove or replace certain functions at any time.

Therefore, Exa Labs may modify the T&Cs from time to time. Users will be informed of changes by any means including by way of notification on the Website at least 14 days before the new version comes into force.

During this period, any User may terminate the T&Cs, by any means (e.g., by sending an email), provided that they complete any commitment to which they have already agreed.

Termination of the T&Cs by a User shall not give rise to any compensation.

6. Services: essential features on EXA.Market

Most of the Services provided by Exa Labs are intermediation services enabling peer-to-peer transactions on digital assets between individual Users.

Exa Labs does not provide or perform services or obligations other than as an intermediary and/or a provider of a digital infrastructure to facilitate transactions.

The Services provided by Exa Labs include the following.

6.1. Secondary market

Services provided by Exa.Labs on the secondary market include the following.

1. Exa basket

Exa basket allows Users to create baskets of assets of various digital assets such as Crypto-assets (utility tokens, virtual currencies) and/or NFTs and trade them against other assets or basket of assets on EXA.Market.

Upon the creation of a basket, a smart contract is automatically deployed on the Algorand blockchain storing the various assets. Users understand and accept that Exa Labs is not offering or selling the baskets available on EXA.Market, which are created and sold by Users only.

2. Exa wallet

Exa wallet allows Users to view their holdings of digital assets stored on the Algorand Blockchain through a digital interface and receive offers from other Users.

Users understand and accept that assets appearing on Exa.Wallet are not stored or detained by Exa.Labs but on the Algorand Blockchain, Exa Wallet being just a tool to visualize assets on the Blockchain.

6.2. Primary market

Services provided by Exa.Labs on the primary market include the following.

1. General description of the service

EXA.Market is a launchpad service for the launch of NFTs Collections on a Primary Market of NFTs.

Following the signature of a dedicated agreement distinct from the present terms, EXA.Market makes available to Creators a platform to facilitate the launch of NFT Collections.

Users may acquire and “mint” NFTs, meaning that they will be the first buyers of the NFTs from the NFT Collection, which will be recorded on the Algorand Blockchain.

EXA.Market contains a dedicated section enabling Users to display NFTs they own and stored on Blockchain Addresses of their own.

2. Primary sales

Users may interact with primary sales of NFTs on the Primary Market in two ways, up to the Creator’s choice :

  • Mystery drop: Users may acquire a token representing the future right to claim an NFT. While such a token may be freely traded, exchanged and sold, it does not represent an NFT from the Creator’s NFT Collection but only a right to claim one NFT.

  • Instant drop : Users may directly acquire a distinct NFT from the NFT Collection, in which case they receive such NFT against payment.

3. Disclaimer

Exa Labs is only offering through the launchpad (against a compensation paid by the Creator), digital online tools for Creators to sell their NFT Collection during a primary sale of NFTs, providing only a mere technical assistance to the exclusion of any implication in the project, roadmap or whitepaper associated with the NFT Collection.

While Exa Labs may have a contractual relationship with the Creator, Exa Labs is not making any claim about the legitimacy, authenticity, seriousness, professionalism of Creators and the NFT Collection they intend to sell nor on the intellectual property rights attached to the NFT Collection, the legal qualification of the NFTs or any other claim, in particular legal claim, as to the NFT Collection.

When Users purchase one or several NFTs from one NFT Collection during a Sale, Users acknowledge the technological, contractual and economical fundamental uncertainties of the promises and the claims made by the Creator on the roadmap, the website, the whitepaper or any other document or information associated with the NFT Collection. In particular, Users are made aware of the risks of “rugpull” and other alternative ways of fraud (e.g. “slow rugpull”) that Users may undergo from Creators, which can lead to an important decrease in value of NFTs, sometimes to zero.

7. Financial terms

7.1. Fees

In consideration of the Services, Users shall pay the following fees:

  • Exa Market : each transaction occurring on or through EXA.Market shall be subject to a fee the amount of which appears on the Website at the moment of the transaction. Unless otherwise expressly stated, this amount shall be 1.99% of the transaction.

7.2. Financial flows

Transactions on the Website can be paid in Crypto-assets through the use of an External Wallet.

Users may also acquire Crypto-assets with currencies (e.g. euros) through payment by credit card with the intermediation of the services of Wyre, a Third-Party Service enabling Users to carry on fiat-to-crypto transactions, in other words, converting fiat currencies into Crypto-assets.

The use of Wyre is subject to Wyre’s terms and conditions, which may be found here: https://www.sendwyre.com/legal/user-agreement.

Users understand that :

  • when they acquire a digital asset or a basket on EXA.Market, they pay fees to (i) the seller of such digital asset or basket, and (ii) to Exa.Labs (see art. 7.1).

  • when they acquire an NFT on the Primary Market on EXA.Market : they pay fees to (i) the NFT Creator and (ii) to Exa Labs.

7.3. Transaction fees

Creating, buying, selling or transferring Crypto-assets and/or NFTs may be subject to transaction fees from the corresponding Blockchain (including so-called “gas” fees on the Ethereum Blockchain).

Transaction/gas fees are paid to transaction validators having an activity on the corresponding Blockchain through Users’ independent wallet as consideration for validating transactions and operating Blockchains. Transactions fees are either (i) set by Users through the User’s External Wallet operating on the corresponding Blockchain or (ii) set directly by the functionalities of the corresponding Blockchain, based on the market conditions on such Blockchain.

Exa Labs has no control whatsoever over the price of transaction fees. Users are made aware that transaction fees can be very high from time to time, depending on market conditions, the corresponding Blockchain.
