  • Volatility of token. It is something with risk as cryptocurrencies are highly volatile products. Participation in staking does not guarantee profit for you.

  • 51% attack. There is the potential risk on a global scale for a blockchain protocol - a 51% attack which refers to an attack where a group of miners owns more than 50% of the network to carry out irreversible events, which may be associated, among other things, with financial losses. We monitor such events in real time and immediately inform clients about significant events on the networks, but you must be aware of this risk and be prepared for such a scenario.
