4.Virtual Assets Risk Warnings
The trading of Virtual Assets involves a significant amount of risk. Prices can fluctuate on any given day and in a matter of seconds. As a result, your Virtual Assets may lose value at any given moment and may even become absolutely worthless. Trading of Virtual Assets is not regulated and therefore you do not benefit from protections available to customers receiving regulated E-money/payment services. The legal, tax and regulatory status of Virtual Assets is uncertain. Digital wallets, where Virtual Assets are held, are vulnerable to cyber-attacks. Virtual Assets supported by Excelon Exchange are governed by underlying software protocols that we do not own or control.
Your risk profile should be that of a risk seeker and you should only allocate a small fraction of your wealth in Virtual Assets.
Please refer to the extensive review of the risks associated with Virtual Assets found on the Risk Warning section of the Site in order to carefully assess whether your financial situation and tolerance for risk is suitable for buying/selling/trading Virtual Assets.
By proceeding, you understand and agree that Excelon Exchange shall not be responsible for any damage or loss incurred by you as a result of the Services.

Please check out Supported Virtual Assets as to which are currently the Supported Virtual Assets.In the case that we decide to remove a virtual asset from the above list we will give you reasonable prior notice in order to withdraw or sell this virtual asset.
9.Virtual Asset and Fiat funds storage and transfers
You can ask us to send from (Withdraw), receive into (Deposit), and store in your Account, Supported Virtual Assets or Fiat funds, on your behalf.
When, according to your instructions, we buy Virtual Assets on your behalf, or when you transfer into your Account, Virtual Assets, these will be stored, on an “omnibus basis”, in Virtual Assets pool wallets created and maintained by us or in the custody of a third party which may be a Liquidity Provider or an established custodian institution. We may convert Virtual Assets held in such pool wallets into Fiat and other Virtual Assets as required, for example to comply with law enforcement requests or to ensure day-to-day liquidity. This will not affect your ability to withdraw any Virtual Assets that we hold on your behalf.
Any delivery of a Supported Virtual Asset or Fiat funds by you, or by a third party, to your Account held with Excelon Exchange, will not be considered final and will appear as “pending” and the respective Virtual Assets or Fiat funds will not become available for Transactions or Transfers until we have completed to our satisfaction checks dictated by our Anti-Money Laundering and Counter Terrorist Financing Policy. This may involve requesting from you additional information with regards to the source of these Virtual Assets or Fiat funds, additional identification for you or from the party sending the Virtual Assets of Fiat funds to your Account with Excelon Exchange.
Under no circumstances should you attempt to use your Account to store, send, request, or receive Virtual Assets in any form that we do not support (although we will use reasonable efforts to help you transfer or sell Virtual Assets that we no longer support). We assume no responsibility or liability in connection with any attempt to use Excelon Exchange Account for Virtual Assets that we do not support.
Please keep in mind that, given the irreversible nature of blockchain transactions, we will assume no responsibility for any Virtual Asset transfer executed on your behalf in accordance of your instructions. It is your sole responsibility to ensure that the details and address of the crypto wallet that you provide to us when you initiate a transfer instruction are correct. You understand and agree that you cannot cancel, reverse, or change any Transfer you have instructed us to perform, even if it appears as “pending”.
Once submitted to a Virtual Asset network, a Virtual Asset transfer will remain unconfirmed for a period of time pending sufficient confirmation of the transfer by that Virtual Asset network. A Virtual Asset transfer is not complete while it is in “pending” state. Virtual Assets associated with Virtual Asset transfers that are in a “pending” state will be designated accordingly, and will not be included in your Virtual Asset balance or be available to conduct Virtual Asset transactions.
Our security protocols consist of a variety of storage facilities and, therefore, large Transfers may incur some transmission delays as such positions may be maintained in offline storage for secutity reasons.
Due to the inherent nature of the cryptocurrency networks, you acknowledge and agree that depositing and withdrawing Virtual Assets into/from your Account may take some time.
You can Deposit in, or Withdraw from, your Account Fiat funds using bank transfer, credit/debit card, direct transfer from your Excelon E-money Service or other methods we may make available to you from time to time in your Account. The Fiat funds transfer methods that are available to you depend upon your location, the identification information you have provided to us, and limitations imposed by third party payment processors. We may use third party electronic payment processors and/or financial institutions to process Fiat transfers made by and to you in connection with your use of the Services. Such processing is outside our control. Therefore you understand and agree that, although we will attempt to execute your instructions as soon as possible, delays related to the global financial network (including, but not limited to, bank holidays, SWIFT or SEPA processing lags) may affect the time your Fiat funds are made available to you.
Limits apply to the amount of Virtual Assets or Fiat funds you can transfer in or out of Excelon Exchange. You can find these limits when you log into your Account.
Virtual Asset and Fiat transfers in, and out of, Excelon Exchange, must be accompanied by certain mandatory information about originator and beneficiary, which in some cases, according to regulations in force, must be accurate and verified. You may not initiate a transfer out, or receive Virtual Asset and Fiat funds in your Account unless we are satisfied that the information accompanying such transfer is up to the standards required by regulations in force.
Transfer (Deposit or Withdrawal) fees may be charged in order to execute a Virtual Asset or Fiat funds transfer. You can find the full list of fees regarding all functions of Excelon Exchange here. Network fees are incorporated in the Transfer fees.
We may refuse to process or cancel any pending Virtual Asset or Fiat funds transfer if this is required by law or any court or other authority in jurisdictions that we operate.
10.Buying and selling Virtual Assets
Excelon Exchange allows you to buy, or to sell, Supported Virtual Assets in exchange of Fiat currency or other Supported Virtual Assets.
- To buy a Virtual Asset, indicate which of the Supported Virtual Assets you want to buy, what quantity, and confirm that you accept the price we quote to you for this purchase at that moment. The price we quote to you, due to the inherently high volatility of Virtual Assets, will fluctuate every few seconds and is valid only for the specific moments it appears. In addition to the quoted price, you may be required to pay a Transaction Fee in relation with the specific transaction. The Transaction Fee is paid in the currency of the quoted price[DH1]. You can find the full list of fees regarding all functions of Excelon Exchange here. You can buy a Virtual Asset only if you have funds sufficient for the quoted price plus any applicable Transaction Fees (cumulatively, the “Buy Consideration”) present in your Account.
Once we receive your confirmation, we will debit your Account with the Buy Consideration and credit your Account with the Virtual Assets you purchased, which will appear in “pending” state until the finalisation of the transaction. You understand and agree that, although we will attempt to finalise the transaction in the shortest time possible, due to the inherent latency of Virtual Assets networks it is possible that the finalisation may take some time.
- To sell a Virtual Asset, indicate which of the Supported Virtual Assets that you hold with Excelon Exchange you want to sell, what quantity, and confirm that you accept the price we quote to you for this sale at that moment. The price we quote to you, due to the inherently high volatility of Virtual Assets, will fluctuate every few seconds and is valid only for the specific moments it appears. You may be required to pay a Transaction Fee in relation with the specific transaction, which will be netted against the quoted price (resulting to the “Sell Consideration”). The Transaction Fee is paid in the Virtual Asset you are selling. You can find the full list of fees regarding all functions of Excelon Exchange here. You can only sell Virtual Assets that you hold available in your Account with Excelon Exchange.
Once we receive your confirmation, we will debit your Account with the Virtual Assets you sell and credit your Account with the Sell Consideration, which will appear in “pending” state until the finalization of the transaction. You understand and agree that, although we will attempt to finalize the transaction in the shortest time possible, due to the inherent latency of Virtual Assets networks and the time it may take to confirm each transaction (which also may vary from Virtual Asset to Virtual Asset) it is possible that the finalization may take some time.
- Excelon Exchange, in order to maintain liquidity for its users and to quote to you the price at which you can buy or sell any Supported Virtual Asset at any given moment , uses certain major crypto exchanges of great reputation and strong financial standing as Liquidity Providers. You acknowledge and agree that, when confirming buy or sell Transactions, you may have as counterparty other Excelon Exchange users, users of our Liquidity Providers, or us.
- The prices of Virtual Assets can change very quickly, and we cannot guarantee that the value of the Virtual Assets you instruct us to buy or sell will be the same price as quoted to you when you initiate the transaction. If this happens, we will ask you to confirm whether you would like to proceed with the transaction at the updated Buy or Sell Consideration.
You understand and agree that, once you confirm a buy or sell transaction you are irrevocably authorizing us to initiate the transaction at the quoted price and you are in agreement with any associated Transaction Fees. You cannot cancel, reverse, or change any transaction or order.

Sometimes we might be entitled to be compensated by you, for instance due to a technical error in your favour, when you have a negative balance on your Account, if your payment in relation to a certain transaction is not successful, or when you use the Excelon Exchange Service in such a way that violates the Terms. In such cases, you authorise us, in our sole discretion, either to cancel the transaction or to recover any sum due to us by debiting your other payment methods, including balances on your Excelon E-money Service and/or Virtual Assets or Fiat funds held with Excelon Exchange, in any amount necessary to complete the transaction.
Where necessary, we will convert Fiat currencies and Virtual Assets at the applicable exchange rate.
For all financial calculations, we use the rounding policy in the favour of Excelon Exchange. We round the FIAT funds to the second decimal digit after the separator for Withdrawals. The rounding policy for Virtual Assets varies depending on Virtual Asset.
For the purpose of the process’s optimization, transactions on Excelon Exchange with regard to some items (including, but not limited to Fiat funds, Virtual Assets, etc.) will not be reflected at your Account and will appear as soon as a unit is whole in accordance with the rounding standards.
