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 VERSE advises Users to consider this risk before buying and selling NFTs. The purchase of NFTs within the Marketplace 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.

All activity and use of crypto assets is highly unregulated and the value of NFTs can be quite volatile and unpredictable. This might 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 Marketplace, 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 Marketplace, the Website and/or the Services. In the event of any of such situations, Users are not guaranteed any remedy, refund or compensation.

You acknowledge and understand that your use of the Website is at your 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 Marketplace, the NFT’s, information, software, products, Services and related graphics contained on the Website for any purpose. The Company will not be responsible for any failures, disruptions, errors, distortions or delays you may experience when using the Website whatever the cause might be. By using the Website you expressly acknowledge and assume all risks.

Conditions of use

By using the Website, you agree to comply with these T&Cs. The use of the Website, its products, services and the Marketplace is exclusive to those who have accepted these T&Cs. VERSE 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, VERSE 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 and using the Marketplace whatsoever.

Using the Marketplace

1. Minting
VERSE will receive from Artists all the details regarding their artwork to be hosted on the Marketplace (including image, description, etc) at the following email address and we will mint the NFT using our smart contract. We will implement EIP-2981 NFT royalty standard allowing artists to benefit from royalties if their NFT is sold in other marketplaces. NFT metadata and image is stored on IPFS. VERSE cannot burn or transfer NFTs owned by other wallets. VERSE will set artist royalties compatible with EIP-2981 standard at mint time. Artists at all times will own their NFT. VERSE is merely a provider of minting services and offering the NFTs for sale in the Marketplace.
Every time a Buyer purchases a NFT, we collect the payment and transfer the money to the Artist while keeping a commission.

2. Primary market
Within VERSE Marketplace, Users can purchase NFTs with fiat currencies using a credit card, or crypto currencies via USDC stablecoin deposits (through Third-Party Applications). The Company will not directly handle or otherwise process the USDC deposits used to purchase NFTs. VERSE does not control the third-party services it uses to process payments and/or USDT deposits nor its smart contracts and protocols. To learn about the risks involved for you, please refer to the terms and conditions of the respective third parties.
When a Buyer purchases an NFT on the primary market, The Company will mint and deliver the NFT to the account of the Buyer on the VERSE platform within one (1) day of purchase. The Buyer will be notified by email of the successful purchase.
All NFTs on the Marketplace are held in a master custodial wallet and Users can withdraw NFTs to an external wallet at will. After you withdraw NFT to an external wallet you agree to use such wallet according to the applicable terms and conditions. External wallets are not operated by, maintained by, or otherwise affiliated with VERSE. In no event shall the Company be liable for any damage or loss arising from the use of an external wallet.

3. Secondary market
When a Buyer purchases an NFT on the secondary market, the NFT will be transferred to the account of the Buyer on the VERSE platform within one (1) day. The Buyer will be notified by email of the successful purchase.
Users are allowed and encouraged to keep their NFTs on the VERSE platform to trade on the secondary market. Since VERSE uses an omnibus wallet, Users will not pay gas fees on the secondary market.
