The PSI token PSI, (from here on referred to as PSI) does not have the legal qualification of a security, since it does not give any rights to dividends or interests.
The present White Paper is not and cannot be considered as a prospectus nor as an offering of securities in any foreign jurisdiction. The purchaser of PSI is aware that national securities laws, which ensure that investors are sold investments that include all the proper disclosures and are subject to regulatory scrutiny for the investor’s protection, are not applicable. It is the sole and exclusive responsibility of anyone willing to purchase PSI to carefully observe the law, rules and regulations that apply in relation to the sale of PSI in her/his/its/their domicile/place of incorporation.
Anyone purchasing PSI expressly acknowledges and represents that she/he/it/them has carefully reviewed these documents and fully understands the risks, costs and benefits associated with the purchase of PSI. The sale of PSI is final and non-refundable.
The purchaser of PSI undertakes that she/he/it/them understands and has significant experience of cryptocurrencies, blockchain technology and services. She/he/it/them fully understands the risks associated with the coin offering or auction (hereinafter referred to as “ICO”) as well as the mechanism related to the use of cryptocurrencies (incl. storage).
The purchaser of PSI is responsible to take all reasonable and appropriate measures to secure her/his/its/their wallet or means used to purchase PSI and to receive/store PSI. Trident shall not be responsible and hereby excludes any and all liability for any issues related to the access to the purchased PSI or security breaches relating to the receipt, possession, storage, transfer or use of PSI, which lead to the loss of the purchased PSI. Neither Trident, nor its subsidiaries, agents, employees or representatives shall be liable for events such as hacking, theft, fraud, cyber-attack, which result in a loss of the purchased PSI.
Acquiring and storing PSI involves various risks, in particular (but not limited) the risk that Trident may not be able to provide all planned services and related operations or is forced (in particular due to change in the legal environment and/or issuance of new law or regulations) to stop its operations or change its business model.
Therefore, and prior to acquiring PSI, any interested person should carefully consider the risks, costs and benefits of acquiring PSI in the context of the Private Sale and, if necessary, obtain any independent advice in this regard. Any interested person who is not in the position to accept or to understand the risks associated with Trident's activities or any other risks as indicated in the Terms & Conditions of the Sale should not acquire PSI.
This White Paper, Pitch Deck & Docs shall not and cannot be considered as an advice nor a recommendation or an invitation to purchase, hold or sell PSI. In particular, it is not intended to provide and must not be deemed as advice on whether to purchase PSI. The White Paper, Pitch Deck & Docs does not include nor contain any information or indication that might be considered as a recommendation or that might be used to base any investment decision.
This White Paper, Pitch Deck & Docs does not constitute or relate in any way nor should be considered as an offering of securities in any jurisdiction (see General Information here above). It does not constitute an offer or an invitation to sell shares, securities or rights belonging to Trident or any subsidiary or other related company. The PSI is a utility token, which can be used only in relation to Trident core services. It is not intended to be used as an investment.
The purpose of the Private Sale is to develop its network through a community of future PSI users. After the sale, purchasers of PSI will have the possibility to use the PSI for fee discounts in relation to Trident core services (see core services section). The offering of PSI relates exclusively to Trident's above-mentioned activities and planned use of the PSI and does not have speculative purposes.
Trident is not to be considered as an advisor in any legal, tax or financial matters. Any information in the White Paper, Pitch Deck & Docs is given for general information purpose only and Trident does not provide with any warranty as to the accuracy and completeness of this information now or in the future. The information set out in this document may be subject to amendments, updating, revision, completion and verification. Given the lack of crypto-token qualifications in most countries, any person undertaking to acquire PSI is strongly advised to carry out a legal and tax analysis concerning the purchase and ownership of PSI according to her/his nationality and/or her/his/it place of residence or incorporation.
The purchase of PSI during the private sale will require the positive conclusion of a Know Your Customer (KYC) identification process.
The PSI confers no direct or indirect right to Trident's capital or income, nor does it confer any governance rights within Trident (incl. its subsidiaries); the PSI is no proof of ownership or a right of control over Trident and does not grant the purchaser any asset or share in Trident (incl. its subsidiaries). The PSI does not grant to the purchaser any right of control or governance over Trident's management or decision-making set-up (incl. its subsidiaries).
Regulatory authorities are carefully scrutinizing businesses and operations associated with cryptocurrencies in the world. In that respect, regulatory measures, investigations or actions may impact Trident as well as the Subsidiary’s business and even limit or prevent it from continuing to carry out and develop its operations. Any person undertaking to acquire PSI must be aware that Trident's (incl. the Subsidiary) business model, the White Paper, Pitch Deck & Docs or the Terms & Conditions of the Sale may change or need to be modified because of new regulatory and compliance requirements from any applicable laws in any jurisdictions. In such a case, anyone undertaking to acquire PSI acknowledges and understands that neither Trident nor any of its subsidiaries shall be held liable for any direct or indirect loss or damage caused by such changes.
The PSI will be issued by a technical process referred to as “Blockchain”. This is an open source IT protocol over which neither Trident nor its subsidiaries have rights or liability in terms of its development and operation. The token distribution mechanism will be controlled by a Smart Contract; this involves a computer program that can be executed on the Harmony Protocol network or on any blockchain network that is compatible with any Smart Contract programming language. Any person undertaking to acquire PSI acknowledge and understand that Trident (incl. its subsidiaries, bodies and employees) assumes no liability or responsibility for any loss or damage that would result from or relate to the incapacity to use PSI, except in case of intentional misconduct or gross negligence.
The PSI is based on the Ethereum protocol. Therefore, any malfunction, unplanned function or unexpected operation of the Ethereum protocol or the Harmony Protocol network may cause the PSI to malfunction or operate in a way that is not expected. Ether, the native Ethereum protocol account unit may itself lose value in a similar way to the PSI, and also in other ways.
