12. Risks:
a. The trading of goods and products, real or virtual, as well as virtual currencies, involves significant risk which you should be aware of. Prices do and can fluctuate on any given day. Due to such price fluctuations, you may increase or lose value in your assets (in part or in total) at any given moment. Any currency (virtual or not) may be subject to large swings in value and may even become worthless. There is an inherent risk that losses will occur as a result of buying, selling or trading any instrument on a market/platform.
b. Cryptocurrency trading also has special risks not shared with official currencies or goods or commodities in a market. Unlike most currencies, which are backed by governments or other legal entities, or by commodities such as gold or silver, Cryptocurrency is a unique and backed by technology and trust. There is no central bank that can take corrective measure to protect the value of Cryptocurrency in a crisis or issue more currency. Instead, Cryptocurrency is an as-yet autonomous and largely unregulated worldwide network. Traders put their trust in a digital, decentralized and partially anonymous system that relies on peer-to-peer networking and cryptography to maintain its integrity.
c. Cryptocurrency trading is susceptible to irrational/rational fluctuations or loss of confidence, which could collapse demand relative to supply in a variety of situations.

13. Additional Risks:
a. As there are derivatives being traded on the ZPX Platform, there could be additional counter party risk. You should be aware that in/under extreme market circumstances, ZPX WLL may decide to partially or entirely close winning positions to be able to close loosing positions. Derivatives settle daily in 24h sessions. So, if bankruptcies in a session deplete the insurance fund, any further losses will be covered by profits made by traders on the platform on a pro rata basis. In such a case, all winning traders of a session would get taxed a percentage on their earnings to cover for other traders’ bankruptcies.
b. You should note that ZPX WLL will only undertake such steps after the ZPX WLL insurance fund is depleted. The fund upon inception of the trading on the ZPX Trading Platform was capitalized with [·] by ZPX WLL. In general, the fund will be used to cover for system losses due to bankruptcies. [The current status of the insurance fund is shown in real-time on the “Insurance” page accessible on the ZPX Trading Platform.]

14. Nature of Cryptocurrency:
Due to the nature of cryptocurrencies, there could occur situations where ZPX WLL also or in insolation of clause 15 above, takes the step where contracts will be closed prematurely for platform integrity. Users of the platform are assumed to understand those risks.

15. Further Note:
You should be aware that there may be additional risks that ZPX WLL has not foreseen or identified in the ZPX Terms of Service.

16. Assess Your Situation:
Based on what we have identified as risks, the trading you will perform on the ZPX WLL Platform and the nature of cryptocurrency, you should carefully assess whether your financial situation and tolerance for risk is suitable for buying, selling or trading cryptocurrency.
