1. ACCOUNT SETUP
1.1. Eligibility. To be eligible to use the AXEL.Network Wallet and Wallet Services, you must be at least 18 years old, and reside in a region where blockchain and token technologies are legal and not prohibited or otherwise illegal. Notwithstanding this age requirement, if a user does not possess and has no intention of ever possessing tokens in an AXEL External Wallet (that is, tokens that can be transferred without restriction even outside of AXEL applications, including to or from a cryptocurrency exchange) and only possesses tokens for the purpose of using an AXEL application, then the user must be at least 13 years old, as per the Terms and Conditions of AXEL Applications.
1.2. Terms. We may amend or modify this Agreement at any time by posting the revised agreement on an AXEL Site (a “Revised Agreement”). The Revised Agreement shall be effective as of the time it is posted but will not apply retroactively. Your continued use of the Services after the posting of a Revised Agreement constitutes your acceptance of such Revised Agreement. If you do not agree with any such modification, your sole and exclusive remedy is to terminate your use of the Services and close your account.
1.3. Registration of an AXEL Account. You must register for an AXEL account to use the AXEL Wallet and Wallet Services (an “AXEL Account”). By using an AXEL Account you agree and represent that you will use AXEL only for yourself, and not on behalf of any third party, unless you have obtained prior written approval from AXEL. You are fully responsible for all activity that occurs under your AXEL Account. We may, in our sole discretion, refuse to open an AXEL Account, or limit the number of AXEL Accounts that you may hold or suspend or terminate any AXEL Account at our sole discretion.
1.4. Access. To access the AXEL Wallet and Wallet Services, you must have the necessary equipment (such as a smartphone or laptop) and the associated telecommunication service subscriptions to access the Internet. Although we strive to provide you with excellent service, we do not represent that any of the AXEL services and websites, including AXEL.org, AXEL.network, Go.AXEL.Network, AXEL.Exchange, AXEL Wallet, or Wallet Services will be available without interruption. AXEL shall not be liable for any losses resulting from or arising out of outages or transaction delays.
2. WALLET SERVICES
2.1. AXEL Wallet and Wallet Services. As part of your AXEL Account, AXEL will provide qualifying users access to: (a) a hosted AXEL Wallet for holding AXEL Tokens.
2.2. AXEL Internal and External Wallets. AXEL provides both an Internal Wallet (AXEL Internal Wallet) and an External Wallet (AXEL External Wallet), collectively known as “AXEL Wallets.”
2.2.1 AXEL Internal Wallets can be used to manage internal tokens for the purpose of utilizing products and services on the AXEL.Network CDN (Content Distribution Network) and associated services including IPFS (Interplanetary File System) and the AXEL.Exchange (AXEL Exchange). Examples of AXEL internal tokens include “fuel tokens” and other tokens received that are restricted in use to using an application on the AXEL.Network (such as an AXEL application).
2.2.2 AXEL Tokens held in AXEL Internal Wallets may not be transferred out of, or transferred to an AXEL External Wallet (AXEL Wallet) at any time. AXEL Tokens held within the AXEL Internal Wallet are designated solely for use on AXEL.Network CDN services as described above in 2.2.1.
2.2.3 AXEL External Wallets are used to house AXEL Tokens which may be freely transferred to other AXEL Wallets, or to 3rd parties, entities, or other persons with which you choose to transfer AXEL Tokens.
2.2.4 AXEL External Wallets may transfer AXEL Tokens to AXEL Internal Wallets for use on the AXEL.Network CDN and associated services as outlined above in 2.2.1. Transfer of AXEL Tokens from the AXEL External Wallet to the AXEL Internal Wallet are one-way only and may not be reversed or cancelled.
2.3. Supported Digital Currencies. Your AXEL Wallet is intended solely for proper use hosting AXEL Tokens only. Under no circumstances should you attempt to use your AXEL Wallet to store, send, request, or receive any digital currencies or tokens other than the AXEL Token. AXEL assumes no responsibility in connection with any attempt to use your AXEL Wallet with any token or digital currency except AXEL Tokens.
2.4. Ownership. As the owner of AXEL Tokens in your AXEL Wallet(s), you shall bear all risk of loss of such. AXEL shall have no liability for fluctuations in the price or value of AXEL Tokens.
2.5. Security. AXEL shall retain control over electronic private keys associated with AXEL Wallets.
2.6. Control. You control the AXEL Tokens held in your AXEL External Wallet. At any time, subject to outages, downtime, and other applicable policies, you may withdraw your AXEL Tokens (from your AXEL External Wallet) by sending them to a different blockchain address.
2.7. Acknowledgement of Risk. You acknowledge that AXEL Tokens are not subject to protections or insurance provided by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or the Securities Investor Protection Corporation.
2.8. Transaction Fees. Transaction fees may apply to transactions from an AXEL Wallet. Such transaction fees will be disclosed (and, in at least some cases, adjusted or set by users) at the time of the transaction request. By using AXEL Wallet and Wallet Services you agree to pay all applicable fees. AXEL reserves the right to adjust its pricing and fees at any time.
2.9. Unauthorized and Incorrect Transactions. When an AXEL Token transaction occurs using your credentials, we will assume that you authorized such transaction. We are not responsible for any claim for unauthorized or incorrect transactions.
3. AXEL TOKEN TRANSFERS
3.1. In General. Your AXEL External Wallet enables you to send AXEL Tokens to, and request, receive, and store AXEL Tokens from other parties. Your transfer of AXEL Tokens between your other AXEL Wallets (including transfers to AXEL Internal Wallets or wallets off of the AXEL.Network) and to and from third parties is a “Digital Currency Transfer”.
3.2. Pending Transactions. Once a Digital Currency Transfer is submitted to a Digital Currency network, the transaction will be unconfirmed and remain in a pending state for a period of time sufficient to confirmation of the transaction by the Digital Currency network. A Digital Currency Transfer is not complete while it is in a pending state. Pending Digital Currency Transfers that are initiated from an AXEL Wallet will reflect a pending transaction status and are not available to you for use on the AXEL.Network or otherwise while the transaction is pending.
3.3. AXEL Token Transfers. When you or a third party sends AXEL Tokens from a wallet, the person initiating the transaction is solely responsible for executing the transaction properly, which may include, among other things, payment of sufficient network, transaction, or masternode fees in order for the transaction to be successful. Insufficient fees may cause an AXEL Token Transfer to remain in a pending state outside of AXEL’s control and we are not responsible for delays or loss incurred as a result of an error in the initiation of the transaction and have no obligation to assist in the remediation of such transactions. By initiating an AXEL Token Transfer, you attest that you are transacting solely in AXEL Tokens, and your Transfer is directed to other AXEL Wallets. Erroneously transmitted AXEL Tokens will be lost. We recommend Users send a small amount of AXEL Tokens as a test prior to initiating a send of a significant amount of AXEL Tokens.

4.5. Death of Account Holder. For security reasons, if we receive legal documentation confirming your death or other information leading us to believe you have died, we will freeze your AXEL Wallets and your AXEL Account and during this time, no transactions may be completed until:(i) your designated fiduciary has opened a new AXEL Account, as further described below, and the entirety of your AXEL Account has been transferred to such new account, or (ii) we have received proof in a form satisfactory to us that you have not died. If we have reason to believe you may have died but we do not have proof of your death in a form satisfactory to us, you authorize us to make inquiries, whether directly or through third parties, that we consider necessary to ascertain whether you have died. Upon receipt by us of proof satisfactory to us that you have died, the fiduciary you have designated in a valid Will or similar testamentary document will be required to open a new AXEL Account. If you have not designated a fiduciary, then we reserve the right to (i) treat as your fiduciary any person entitled to inherit your AXEL Account, as determined by us upon receipt and review of the documentation we, in our sole and absolute discretion, deem necessary or appropriate, including (but not limited to) a Will, a living trust or a Small Estate Affidavit, or (ii) require an order designating a fiduciary from a court having competent jurisdiction over your estate. In the event we determine, in our sole and absolute discretion, that there is uncertainty regarding the validity of the fiduciary designation, we reserve the right to require an order resolving such issue from a court of competent jurisdiction before taking any action relating to your AXEL Account. Pursuant to the above, the opening of a new AXEL Account by a designated fiduciary is mandatory following the death of a AXEL Account owner, and you hereby agree that your fiduciary will be required to open a new AXEL Account and provide the information required under Section 2 of this Agreement in order to gain access to the contents of your AXEL Account.
4.6. Unclaimed Property. If AXEL is holding AXEL Tokens in your AXEL Wallet and/or AXEL account, and AXEL is unable to contact you and has no record of your use of the AXEL Wallet or Wallet Services for several years, applicable law may require AXEL to report these AXEL Tokens as unclaimed property to the applicable jurisdiction.

6. RISK DISCLOSURES
You understand that AXEL Tokens have many risk factors. You should carefully consider whether acquiring and holding AXEL Tokens is right for you. The following provides a high-level summary of some of the key risk factors:
- AXEL is a “start-up” company. Financial and operating risks confronting startups are significant: AXEL is not immune to these. The startup market in which AXEL competes is highly competitive and the percentage of companies that survive and prosper is small. Startups often experience unexpected problems in the areas of product development, marketing, financing, and general management, among others, which frequently cannot be solved. In addition, startups may require substantial amounts of financing, which may not be available through institutional private placements, the public markets or otherwise.
- AXEL may be forced to cease operations. It is possible that, due to any number of reasons, including, but not limited to, an unfavorable fluctuation in the value of cryptographic and fiat currencies, the inability by AXEL to establish the utility of AXEL Tokens, the failure of commercial relationships, or intellectual property ownership challenges, AXEL may no longer be viable to operate, and AXEL may dissolve.
- The services associated with AXEL Tokens may not be widely adopted and may have limited users. Such a lack of use or interest could negatively impact the development of AXEL services and therefore the potential utility and value of Tokens.
- AXEL may not be able to build strong brand loyalty in the social media landscape. AXEL believes that brand name recognition is of great importance to the sustainability of AXEL. There is no assurance that AXEL will be able to gain acceptance in the social media, social media marketing, social media software industry. A failure by AXEL to develop its brand name would have a material adverse effect on the business, results of operations and value of the AXEL Tokens.
- AXEL Tokens are not legal tender, are not backed by the government, and accounts and value balances are not subject to Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or Securities Investor Protection Corporation protections.
- Legislative and regulatory changes or actions at the state, federal, or international level may adversely affect the use, transfer, exchange, and value of AXEL Tokens.
- Transactions in AXEL Tokens may be irreversible, and, accordingly, losses due to fraudulent or accidental transactions may not be recoverable.
- Some AXEL Token transactions shall be deemed to be made when recorded on a public ledger, which is not necessarily the date or time that the User initiates the transaction.
- The value of AXEL Tokens may be derived from the continued willingness of market participants to exchange fiat currency for AXEL Tokens, which may result in the potential for permanent and total loss of value of the AXEL Token should the market disappear.
- There is no assurance that a person who accepts AXEL Tokens as payment today will continue to do so in the future.
- The volatility and unpredictability of the price of AXEL Tokens relative to fiat currency may result in significant loss over a short period of time.
- The nature of AXEL Tokens (and all crypto-type tokens in general) may lead to an increased risk of fraud or cyber attack.
- The nature of AXEL Tokens (or any digital token or currency) means that any technological difficulties experienced by AXEL may prevent the access or use of a User’s AXEL Tokens.
