Information on the risks of investing in crypto assets

At Bitnovo we want to be transparent and inform you of the risks of buying cryptocurrencies so that you can make a properly informed decision, being aware of the risks of this investment. Therefore, if you decide to acquire any of the cryptocurrencies through us, we inform you that you must take into account the following risks:

High risk investment product

1. The value of the investments and the return obtained from them may experience significant upward and downward variations, and the entire amount invested may be lost.

2. Investments in early-stage projects involve a high level of risk, so it is necessary to properly understand their business model.

3. The crypto assets we offer are not covered by customer protection mechanisms such as the Deposit Guarantee Fund or the Investor Guarantee Fund.

4. The prices of crypto assets are constituted in the absence of mechanisms that ensure their correct formation, such as those present in regulated securities markets.

5. Many crypto assets may lack the liquidity to undo an investment without significant loss, as their circulation among investors, both retail and professional, may be very limited.

Technology risks

6. Distributed registry technologies are still in an early stage of maturity, many of these networks having been created recently, so they may not be sufficiently tested and there may be significant flaws in their operation and security.

7. The registry of transactions in networks based on distributed registry technologies works through consensus protocols that may be susceptible to attacks that attempt to modify said registry and, in the event of these attacks being successful, there would be no alternative registry to support said transactions. transactions nor therefore to the balances corresponding to the public keys, being able to lose all the crypto assets.

8. The anonymity facilities that cryptoactives can provide make them a target for cybercriminals, since in the case of stealing credentials or private keys they can transfer the cryptoactives to addresses that make their recovery difficult or impossible.
