2.4. Waggle Ecosystem shall consist of the Website (whose domain name includes, but is not limited to, https://waggle.network/), mobile applications, applets, and other applications and/or web platforms, social media platforms developed to provide the Services, including independently-operated platforms, websites, and projects within the ecosystem.
2.5. Waggle Network should relate to the legal entities in charge of providing the Services. Given the significant degree of ambiguity around the legal framework governing crypto-assets, Waggle Network may adapt in order to mitigate the regulatory risks connected with such uncertainty. In this situation, the new legal organizations will be regarded as part of the Waggle Network and must comply with the terms and conditions. Any changes to the Waggle Network's legal framework will have no effect on the rights and duties of Projects or Participants.
2.6. In the event of a dispute, the plaintiff shall identify the counterparties based on the relevant services and the specific acts or omissions that impact the rights or interests of the plaintiff.
2.7. Waggle Network is not a security company, a capital tracker, a portfolio manager, or a financial advisor. Waggle Network is neither a financial institution nor a provider of financial services. Waggle Network is not licensed or authorized by any regulatory entity. Waggle Network does not and will not provide any financial advice, including advice on the acquisition of digital tokens, at any time. Please keep in mind that Waggle Network is neither a financial institution nor a supplier of financial services, nor is it issuing or selling any security or financial instrument.
2.8. In the delivery of the Services, Waggle Network acts as an independent contractor but not as an agent of the Participant(s) and/or Project(s). This Agreement shall not be construed as the basis for or proof of the parties' affiliation, joint venture, partnership, or franchise.
2.9. Waggle Network is under no obligation to assist Participants and/or Projects in enforcing any claims they may have against each other as a result of any engagements entered into as a result of the Services and/or in connection with their use of the Waggle Network platform; however, Waggle Network reserves the right to do so at its sole discretion.
3.1. Waggle Network has created a novel crowdfunding solution for the selling of Utility Tokens with allocation based on the Participant’s condition. Pollinate Project (PP) is the name given to such a procedure. Both Pre-IDO and Post-IDO programs are referred to as "PP." The objective of a PP is to assist promoters of innovative entrepreneurial initiatives (i.e., Projects) in fundraising activities, as well as to increase the power of stakeholders (i.e., Participants) in guiding the development of innovative entrepreneurial initiatives in which they are involved.
3.2. The Project(s) shall use the PP proceeds to carry out its mission, vision, business strategy, and objectives as communicated to its community via its whitepaper, website, social media, and other communication channels, including but not limited to public statements made by directors, officials, and team members.
3.3. In order to participate in the PP Sales, the Participant(s) must deposit and lock a specified quantity of WAG Tokens inside a smart contract in accordance with the instructions on the Website. This kind of participation mechanism will be referred to as "Hive Staking (HS)". Participants must declare their interest by applying to join the whitelist for each Project. The automatic system of Waggle Network analyzes the quality of the wallets associated with the smart contract based on a variety of parameters, including, but not limited to, the number of WAG Tokens staked in "HS" and other eligibility. The wallet scan results decide whether or not the Participant is authorized to participate in PP and under what restrictions. If the wallet selection is lottery-based, a random selection of wallets with equal or equivalent quality must be used. There may be a guaranteed allocation if the wallet scanned matches specific conditions determined in each PP Sales.
3.4. If the aforementioned automatic mechanism has picked the Participant's wallet, The Participant has the option of purchasing Utility Tokens for a certain PP within a time frame indicated on the Website. If the Participant does not exercise this option within the specified time window, the Participant forfeits the right to acquire Utility Tokens.
3.5. Within the context of a PP, the Purchase Price shall be paid by the Participant(s) to the Project(s) in stablecoin, either USDC or BUSD, according to the instructions on the website. The delivery of the Utility Tokens shall be governed by a smart contract and shall follow the vesting schedule described on the Website. Please note other stablecoins may be added in the future without due notice being given. In some particular events, Project(s) will require Participant(s) who successfully purchased Utility Tokens to visit their vesting site for token claiming.
3.6. The amount of Utility Tokens to be distributed to the Participants may be subject to a deduction for the purpose of redistribution towards the other Participants.
3.7. The Participant(s) shall be entirely responsible for considering and deciding the appropriateness of completing the PP Token purchase. The Participant understands and accepts that any purchase of PP Tokens may be subject to additional terms and limitations specified by the Project. The Participant recognizes, accepts, and understands that Waggle Network is not responsible for the Project’s business activity, nor for compliance with the Project's information, vision, purpose, business strategy, and goals (s). Waggle Network disclaims any responsibility for the Project's result. The Participant is entirely responsible for any PP Tokens acquired over the Waggle Network.
3.8. By signing this Agreement and gaining access to Waggle Network, the Participant agrees to Waggle Network staking its tokens. Waggle Network locks the Participant's tokens for an unspecified period of time using staking protocols, rendering them invisible in the Participant's wallet and preventing them from being traded, withdrawn, or otherwise disposed of, unless the Participant unstakes the tokens, which may incur additional costs and fees.
4.1. PP Tokens will be issued to them in the form of an NFT or PP NFT which is minted for exclusive use on the Waggle Network website.
4.2. The Participant will be charged a fee of $5 to cover the costs associated with the KYC verification procedure, platform fees and minting of the above described NFT.
4.2.1 Waggle Network reserves the right to change the fee as described above without notice.
4.3. The Participant bears complete and total liability for the price they set for their NFT on Forage. The Participant agrees that Waggle Network will hold no responsibility for errors made during the selling or purchasing of NFTs on Forage or elsewhere on the Waggle Network platform.
4.4. The Participant(s) shall be solely responsible for evaluating and determining the value and suitability of each NFT when considering a purchase through Forage. The Participant acknowledges and agrees that in any purchase of NFT based tokens, its individual engagement with a particular Project might be subject to specific terms and conditions as set out by that Project. The Participant acknowledges, agrees, and understands that Waggle Network is not responsible for the business conduct of the Project(s), nor for adherence to the information, vision, mission, business strategy, and objectives communicated by the Project(s). Waggle Network shall be absolved from any responsibility regarding the Project’s outcome. The Participant takes full responsibility regarding any NFT purchased through Waggle Network and the Forage feature.
5.1. The Participant shall be a user of Waggle Network User who, at his or her own discretion, elects to engage in the investment mechanism and/or one or more PPs. The Participant must make this determination after carefully weighing all of the risks associated with cryptographic digital tokens, including but not limited to regulatory concerns and cybersecurity risks. The Participant may make a choice in part on the basis of the information displayed on the Website. However, the Participant recognizes, accepts, and understands that the Website and its contents do not constitute investment advice, financial advice, trading advice, or any other kind of advice, and that the Participant shall not consider any of the Website's materials in that capacity. Before making any choices based on any information or other material on the Website, the Participant is solely responsible for weighing the benefits and risks associated with such use. The Participant recognizes that the cryptocurrency market is very volatile, and it should be aware of the danger of losing all their money invested in the cryptocurrency market.
5.2. The Participants acknowledge, agree, and comprehend that Waggle Network does not supervise, direct, or control any of the projects in any way; and that Waggle Network does not control, verify, assure, guarantee, or warrant that the information provided by the project(s) to the participant(s) via the Website is honest, accurate, complete, and up to date. When participating in a PP sale, the participant(s) must conduct their own due diligence on the project(s) before purchasing PP Tokens.
5.3. The Participants clearly accept that they are acquiring and receiving PP Tokens at their own risk and that the Website and PP Tokens are supplied on an "as is" basis without any express or implied guarantees.
5.4. The Participants acknowledge and accept that the purchase of PP Tokens, as with any other kind of acquisition, has considerable risks. As a result, participants should only acquire PP Tokens if they are familiar with cryptographic tokens and blockchain-based software and have a functional grasp of the storage and transmission methods connected with other cryptographic tokens.
5.5. By purchasing PP Tokens, the Participants confirm that they understand and assume the risks involved in such a transaction. In particular, the Participants confirm to fully understand and accept the following:
5.5.1. PP Tokens will be wrapped in a PP NFT and will not be visible in wallets or exchanged as Utility Tokens until Participants successfully claim Utility Tokens or PP Tokens from their PP NFTs. PP NFTs will be traded only on Forage, and possession of a PP NFT entitles the owner to claim PP Tokens.
5.5.2. Any PP will not entail the issue of any securities (whether stock or debt, registered or unregistered), or other types of investment certificates.
5.5.3. PP Tokens are essentially cryptographic tokens that reside on one or more blockchains and may be used to access and interact with the linked Project's digital services and apps.
5.5.4. PP Tokens are not redeemable, are not linked to financial returns, and are not backed by any underlying asset, security, or buyback agreement, and hence do not necessarily have a liquid or market value.
5.5.5. To all intents and purposes, PP Tokens do not represent any kind of investment contract.
5.5.6. The purchase of PP Tokens is not an investment or a collective investment plan, and the Participant(s) should not anticipate any reimbursement, refund, return, or profit as a result of their participation in HS or a PP.
5.5.7. The Participant(s) shall engage in the HS or a PP sale with the intent of investing, speculating, or profiting. By participating in HS or a PP, the Participant(s) should not expect to get anything other than PP Tokens in exchange for the Purchase Price.
5.5.8. The amount paid for PP Tokens by the participant(s) is non-refundable. As a result, the participant (s) must consider all risk factors, including but not limited to the volatility of cryptocurrency prices and markets in general, risks of systemic failure, risks of code failure, bugs, hardware failure, data loss, theft, lost usernames, passwords, or private keys, incorrectly executed transactions, and/or hacks, all of which may result in the complete loss of the PP Tokens, among other things.
5.5.9. It is possible that certain jurisdictions will apply existing regulations or introduce new regulations addressing blockchain technology-based applications, which may be contrary to the current setup of the HS and/or PP and which may, inter alia, result in substantial modifications or loss of PP Tokens.
5.5.10. Due to the fact that the subject of digital encryption is relatively young, there is a possibility of unanticipated assaults on multiple or all components of the Waggle Network platform. Parties may lose their WAG Tokens, PP Tokens, and stablecoins in the case of such an cyberattack/hack.
5.6. The Participant understands the inherent risks associated with the blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies, including, but not limited to, those listed hereinafter:
5.6.1. Risks associated with (intellectual) property rights: the Participant understands and accepts that, due to a lack of originality of the software and to the immaterial character of the PP Tokens, there may be no title of ownership in and to the PP Tokens.
5.6.2. Risks associated with IT: the Participant understands and accepts that the smart contracts, the Website, all the components of the Waggle Network platform, the blockchain (i.e. the Solana blockchain) are still in an early stage and unproven. The Participant understands and accepts that there is no warranty that the process for delivering PP Tokens and/or the smart contracts will be uninterrupted or error-free and acknowledges that there is an inherent risk that the software could contain weaknesses, vulnerabilities or bugs causing, inter alia, the complete loss of WAG Tokens, PP Tokens, and stablecoin. The Participant understands and accepts that the smart contracts and/or underlying protocols and/or any other software involved may either delay and/or not execute the delivery of PP Tokens.
5.6.3. Regulatory risks: the Participant understands and accepts that it is possible that certain jurisdictions will apply existing regulations on, or introduce new regulations addressing, blockchain technology-based applications, which may be contrary to the current setup of the Waggle Network platform and which may, inter alia, result in substantial modifications of the Waggle Network platform, including its termination and the loss of PP Tokens.
5.6.4. Risks associated with abandonment/lack of success: the Participant understands and accepts that the development of the Project(s) may be abandoned for a number of reasons, including lack of interest from the public, lack of funding, lack of commercial success or prospects (e.g. caused by competitors). The Participant, therefore, understands that there is no assurance that, even if the Project is partially or fully developed and launched, the Participant will receive any benefits through the PP Tokens or NFTs held by him/her/it.
5.6.5. Risks associated with a loss of private key: the Participant understands and accepts that PP Tokens and any associated NFT held on the Waggle Network platform can only be accessed by using a digital wallet. The Participant understands and accepts that if his/her/its private key or password gets lost or stolen, the PP Tokens associated with the Participant's digital wallet and any associated NFT will be unrecoverable and will be permanently lost.
5.6.6. Risks associated with Parties’ wallets: the Participant understands and accepts that Waggle Network is in no way responsible for the digital wallet on which the PP Tokens are transferred. The Participant(s) shall understand and agree that they are solely responsible for the access and security of their digital wallet, for any security breach of their wallet and/ with any loss of PP Tokens resulting from digital wallet service providers, including any termination of the service by the digital wallet service provider and/or bankruptcy of the digital wallet service provider. The Participant understands and accepts that the wallet or digital wallet service provider used for the PP has to be technically compatible with the PP Tokens. The failure to assure this may have the result that the Participant will not gain access to his/her/its PP Tokens.
5.6.7. Risks associated with theft/hacks: the Participant understands and accepts that the smart contracts, the Website, the underlying software application and software platform (i.e. the Ethereum blockchain) may be exposed to cyber attacks by hackers or other individuals that could result in theft or loss of WAG Tokens and/or PP Tokens, and/or stablecoins.
5.6.8. Risks associated with depreciation: the Participant understands and accepts that with regard to PP Tokens, no market liquidity may be guaranteed and that the value of PP Tokens over time may experience extreme volatility or depreciate in full.
5.7. The Participant(s) shall confirm that they have understood all the risks mentioned above and hereby confirm that they use Waggle Network at their own risk. The Participant(s) shall understand and agree that Waggle Network shall not be liable for any damage or loss incurred by the Participant(s) due to the materialization of any of the risks mentioned above. The Participant(s) shall release Waggle Network from any liability for any damage and/or loss arising, directly or indirectly, from their use of the Waggle Network platform.
