The Users shall bear any and all losses arising from their decision, and the Platform shall not bear any liability for Users' investment or trading decisions.
Article 58 The Platform does not provide any guarantee or condition to any User and/or any transaction, whether express, implied or statutory. The Platform cannot and does not attempt to control the information released by Users or project owners.
