The Platform is an online ecosystem that includes (i) digital visual renderings of land parcels that act as manifestations of certain non-fungible tokens owned by Platform users or third parties and (ii) one or more interactive elements. Broadly speaking, each function or application within the Platform is a distributed application that is running on the Ethereum Network, using specially-developed smart contract to enable users to interact with digitally rendered assets and items within the Platform. The Platform’s distributed technology also enables users to own and transfer other digital assets within each functionality. These assets can then be visualized on a website that the user can interact with or bought and sold among users. Any information we provide on the of Platform, such as pricing, listing, and sourcing is for informational purposes. Also, Company has no control over and provides no guarantees related to: the existence, accuracy, quality, safety or legality of items advertised or user content; the ability or legal standing of sellers to sell items; the ability of buyers to pay for items; or that any user will complete a transaction or return an item. Items for sale can include physical goods and services, as well as digital items such as non-fungible tokens (“NFTs”), smart contracts, cryptocurrencies, and other digital-based goods (collectively, “Digital Assets”). Some Digital Assets may relate or interface with distributed applications (“Dapps”) and blockchains, including Bitcoin, Ethereum, and USDC. 

The Platform is offered and available to authorized users who are 18 years of age or older who are acting in compliance with applicable law and who are not in breach of this agreement or legal obligations to third parties.

NFT License 

Some Digital Assets sold or created on the Platform may include NFTs. When obtaining, selling, or purchasing an NFT, you agree and understand what characteristics NFTs have and how the following terms apply to their sale. NFTs are usually built using similar technology to digital currencies. But, while digital currencies are usually fungible, NFTs usually are not. Each NFT is coded into a blockchain and contains built-in methods for evidence of authentication and proof of ownership. When you buy an NFT, the terms of your purchase, and the rights you actually purchase and own, may be limited by the terms or technology of the underlying NFT. It is up to you to confirm your understanding of what you are selling or buying and the license you are receiving which is determined by the seller in its sole discretion. The license to any purchased NFT is a matter between the seller and buyer, and Company is not a party to the licensing transaction. All licenses and all ownership interests in any Digital Asset, such as NFTs, shall pass directly from seller to buyer. 

You further understand that blockchain transactions are usually not reversible. You understand that NFTs and other Digital Assets may only exist by virtue of the ownership record maintained on a blockchain, and further that smart contracts are conducted and occur on decentralized ledgers. Company has no control over and makes no guarantees or promises with respect to such smart contracts or the functioning of such blockchain or the persistence, or lack thereof, of the NFT or related content. In cases where a transaction involving a Digital Asset is revealed to be fraudulent or illegal or an infringement, or a buyer or seller acts fraudulently or illegally or in an infringing manner, then the defrauded or injured buyer/seller shall have no recourse against Company, but solely against the respective seller/buyer. 

Sellers of Digital Assets are responsible for providing all necessary information in compliance with all applicable law and regulations regarding such Digital Assets in applicable listings on the Platform.
