Our service consists of making available to You our Software.
Account with a Crypto currency exchange supported by us
To use our Software, you need to have an Account and you need to have an account with a Crypto currency exchange supported by us. The Crypto currency exchanges supported by us can be found on our Website.
We are authorised to decide which Crypto currency exchanges are supported by us. We can at any time decide that a Crypto currency exchange is no longer supported and we can add Crypto currency exchanges to our list of supported Crypto currency exchanges. If reasonably possible, we inform you in advance if a Crypto currency exchange is no longer supported. We can for example decide to no longer support a Crypto currency exchange if we have any indications that a license or registration obligation applies to the relevant exchange and the exchange does not comply with such an obligation. Further, indications such as fraud or lack of protecting measures can result in such a decision. That we support a Crypto currency exchange does not guarantee that the Crypto currency exchange does comply with rules and regulations. You are responsible for choosing your Crypto currency exchange.
API/power of attorney
To use the Software you need to enable us to trade on your account by providing us with your API-key via the Account. By accepting these Terms and by providing your API-key you authorise us and you provide us with a power of attorney to access your Crypto currency exchange account(s) for the purpose of opening buy and sell positions on the basis of the Software. Please make sure that the API enables us to trade and not to withdraw your Crypto currencies. Further, we need to be authorised to have insight in the trades made on the basis of our Software and the transaction fees charged by the relevant Crypto currency exchange(s).
Investment amount, Base currency and Crypto currencies
To start using our Software, the Minimum investment amount needs to be available on your exchange account on the Software starting date and time in the Base currency or euro.
The investment amount is the amount chosen by you via your Account. If your investment amount is in a Base currency other than Euro, the investment amount is calculated on the basis of a conversion of your Base currency / Euro according to the exchange rate available on the Crypto currency exchange. If the exchange rate on the Crypto currency exchange is not available, we will use an exchange rate of another exchange rate website with high reputational standards in view of ProfitBird like www.coinmarketcap.com.
We are only authorised to apply the Software on the investment amount as chosen by you via your Account. Any profits made above your investment amount will not be included in the trades on the basis of the Software. If the amount on the account held with the exchange after the starting date falls below the Minimum investment amount, the Software will be applied to the lower amount.
Before you can use our Software, you need to choose your Base currency via your Account. This is the currency the Software uses to start trading and the currency that is used to make available any profits for you. Any fluctuations in your Base currency and any impact on your profits is for your own account and risk. Further, we recommend to store any Crypto currencies not used for trading on a save, offline wallet and not to store/hold these Crypto currencies with a Crypto currency exchange.
You can only use the Software to trade and invest in Crypto currencies, whereby it is decided via the Software which Crypto currencies are used for trading. If the Crypto currency exchange as supported by us, also offers trading possibilities for security currencies or other products, including ancillary services such as margin trading, these security currencies and other products and ancillary services will not be included in our Software.
Via the API, the Software provides input on your Crypto currency exchange account(s) to buy and sell Crypto currencies. You can continue to use your exchange account as usual. The assets on your Crypto currency exchange account are yours, and you always have the right to intervene in the trades. You can also always withdraw your Crypto currencies from the exchange account, unless otherwise agreed with that exchange.
